00:00:00 --> 00:00:41

If you sin, no matter how many times you sin, never, ever lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. As long as you are breathing, that breath is a reminder to you that oh servant of Allah, you still have a chance to redeem yourself. You have a Lord who is waiting to forgive you, you have nothing to lose, no matter how many years you spent sending, no matter how bad the recurrence of the sin is, turn to Allah. Ask from Allah and have good hope in Allah that Allah has forgiven you that if you were to die moments after seeking that forgiveness, Allah will not ask you about it on the Fatiha you say surat al levena anta Ali him that guide us to the path of those who you you have favored? Yeah,

00:00:41 --> 00:01:13

Allah. But then the question remains, who are those whom you have favored? Yeah, Allah. The answer to that question. Is In Surah Nisa, Rama up Allah Rasool for Allah, Allah Rena and Allah who are Allah him Sirata Lavina and untidy him for hola Latina and Nam Allahu Allah him can you see the connection? For groups? For groups? This is the answer to our question. Yeah, Allah Who are the favorite ones? Allah tells us in Surah Nisa, who they

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

serve Allah here alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21


00:01:22 --> 00:01:38

one of the verses we had today was what you that ye to be the yachting for how you will be asked and I mean, how old do her that if you are greeted with a greeting, then your response to the greeting should be equal to it or better.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:51

So, since we are in the month of Al Quran, and it's a month of implementing the Quran, let's try that Salam again. Salaam Allahu Allah Ali kumara to whoever I get.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:53


00:01:54 --> 00:02:16

Masha Allah, Masha Allah, the Quran is not only a book to be read, but a book to be implemented. I thought I use this as a segue when I heard the verse I said it's a good starting point for today by Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Vina staring on to suddenly want to sell him and hurt him in the beam. The beginner Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adjumani

00:02:17 --> 00:02:24

will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Tada. And we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:26 --> 00:03:22

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Just like this, a third of Ramadan has come to an end, not a third, just checking with listening, a 10th. But very slowly will say that a 10th of Ramadan has come to an end we've completed three full nights and three full days. And we have commenced with our fourth night. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept what has passed of our month and to bless what remains. I mean, there have been I mean, given our program, this Ramadan in Darussalam Education Center whereby we will be completing the Quran insha Allah on the 29th night in the Tarawih prayer so that those who can't make it for the pm at least they get to complete the Quran in

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

the taraweeh.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:29

This plan denotes that we began Surah to Nisa this evening.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:35

And yesterday we completed Surah Al Imran

00:03:36 --> 00:03:49

we began Surah Nisa, we didn't complete Surah Nisa we have a small portion left about a quarter of a juice left to complete Surah Tulisa or a little bit less than a quarter. So we will complete it tomorrow.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

Surah Nisa

00:03:54 --> 00:04:09

like Surah Imran and Surah Al Baqarah. It is a Madani surah and by now you know what Mr. Denis whare means. It is a Surah that was revealed after the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Mecca to Medina

00:04:10 --> 00:04:24

and it is a Surah consisting of 176 verses and it is the fourth surah in the Quran, and one of the sutras that are part of a cyber upheaval meaning the seven long Surahs in the Quran.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:30

Surah Nisa like its predecessor has meaning the surah is before it

00:04:32 --> 00:04:38

has a connection to the sutras before it when the Imam was reading today

00:04:39 --> 00:05:00

there was a connection between it and Surah Fatiha because in Surah Fatiha you say Surat a levena and under Ali him that guide us to the path of those who you you have favored Yet Allah. But then the question remains, who are those whom you have favored? Yeah, Allah, the answer to that question is ensue.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

Ratan Nisa Rama up Allah Rasool for Allah Ikoma Lavina Anna am Allahu Allah him Tirupur Lavina and untidy him for hola Erica Marina and I'm Allahu Allah him can you see the connection mean and be ina was si de Tina was Shuhada was slowly him four groups, four groups. This is the answer to our question yeah Allah Who are the favorite ones? Allah tells us in Surah Nisa who they are. They are the, the prophets and the messengers. The beginner was the deity that truthful ones, those who accepted the Deem upon truth,

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

with truthfulness with sincerity,

00:05:44 --> 00:06:19

are Shahadat the martyrs and may Allah accept the martyrs of the Ummah, especially those from Gaza was sila, heen and the righteous Allah says what hacer una una ecography Why are you asking him in every unit of every Salah for Allah to favor you like he favored those whom he favored? Allah says they are the best company, the one who has the company, then you are in the best company. It is also connected to Surah Al Baqarah. And it is connected to Surah Al Imran in terms of Surah Al Imran

00:06:21 --> 00:06:38

and Imran ended with a command to the believers towards the cloth and immediately Surah Nisa opens with a command to all of mankind towards the core as well. At the end of Surah Al Imran Allah says, Yeah, you are levena M and otaku Allah.

00:06:39 --> 00:07:20

Alright Allah addresses the believers he commands. Allah says a yo yo Alina amorous Bureau, wasabi Rue Warabi to what Allah, Allah addresses the believers and he tells them to be patient and persistent and stationed as we discussed yesterday, and then he said And fear Allah, meaning be righteous, be upon the do's and stay away from the don'ts. And we are in a month of Taqwa. It's important that we know what this temp Taqwa means Taqwa as even hedger, Allah, Allah and he mentioned Rahim Allah in his in his explanation of sahih al Bukhari if at Halle Berry who are integer Anabaena Kobina either Billahi with higher it is for a believer to build and place between

00:07:20 --> 00:08:01

themselves and the punishment of Allah a will kya a require refers to a barrier, a barrier between you and the punishment of Allah at the end of Surah Al Imran Allah says, what Allah be a people who have erected this barrier between you and Allah as punishment, how by being upon the do's and staying away from the don'ts and that's why one of the translations of Toccoa is righteousness, because you are righteous when you remain upon the do's and you are righteous when you stay away from the dose at the opening of Surah Nisa, Allah widens the instruction at the end of Al Imran. He's addressing the believers at the beginning of Surah Nisa, he's addressing mankind and he's

00:08:01 --> 00:08:42

asking mankind to develop this barrier, that for those who are disbelievers enter into Islam, and for those who are Muslims remain upon the path of righteousness. So this is the connection between the two. In terms of Surah, Nisa and Al Baqarah. Then we see Subhan Allah and for those who are paying attention, that a Nissa had a different vibe for a good portion of the surah than Surah Al Imran it had a similar vibe to Surah Baqarah why we see a thunderstorm a downpour of legislation of tertiary being revealed by Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah, Nisa, much of what she was reading in his portion was all legislation.

00:08:44 --> 00:09:34

And, in the hadith of her they find Sahih Muslim, connecting a Nisa to Bukhara he mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he stood the night in prayer, and he started reciting surah baqarah and then Surah Nisa and then Surah Al Imran, in that order. He went from Bukhara to An Nisa and An Nisa to Al Imran. So this is the connection between the two also connecting between the two sources. In terms of a Nisa and Al Imran, yesterday we said that there were many verses about 60 verses in surah. Al Imran that were dedicated to the Battle of Allah subhanho wa taala. He mentioned in Surah Nisa, a verse connected to the battle, but not the battle itself. A portion after the

00:09:34 --> 00:09:35


00:09:36 --> 00:09:59

the portion that is collected to Hamra Al Asad. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in a Nisa from Allah coming full moon FET Nephi 18 wala who arkessa whom be Mecca Cebu, that what is the matter with you that you are two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back into error and disbelief for what they end? This particular verse is connected to the battery itself. I beg your pardon.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:11

because one of the scenes of the scholars is that this particular verse refers to those who left the Battle of Ohio before the battle began, a third of the Muslim army departed and went back to Medina.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:17

And they were the hypocrites. And they said that our Mushara

00:10:18 --> 00:10:44

our consultation was to face the operation within Medina. It was the young vibrant ones from the Sahaba who wanted to go out and we see ourselves walking into a death trap. So they left and went back to El Medina. And after Ohio when the Muslims suffered the losses, and they went back to Medina and the news broke of how many losses the Muslims experienced, and the great Sahaba that were left buried that hurt. They

00:10:45 --> 00:11:20

continued to pour fuel to the head that the Muslims naturally felt and they said lo Abona. Makati do that if they listen to us, they wouldn't have died. This was the message. But Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed and said to them, try and deter death from affecting you when your time to die comes that those who died, it was the time to die. And in terms of surah and Imran we had the salah Kennedy enough Siddhanta Mota Illa Elizabeth in law he keytab Mr. Gela This was last night recitation that it oh the night before was it last night or the night before last night.

00:11:22 --> 00:12:02

But it wasn't for a soul to die except that it died in a reality that was decreed and written 50,000 years before Allah created the heavens and the earth. Those who died it was their time to die. It was decreed 50,000 years before Allah Subhana Allah created the heavens and the earth. But in terms of hemorrhoidal acid that I spoke to you about earlier, this was an event after that after the Muslims went back to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a call that only those who fought with us in our heart, we will go out and follow the courage back to Makkah. Subhanallah nobody else but those who participated. We don't want any fresh legs. We don't want any fresh

00:12:02 --> 00:12:12

people. We want those who are wounded, physically, emotionally walk out, and we're going to follow them to Mecca. And it happened

00:12:13 --> 00:12:24

for the courage to look back, having thought that they won the battle to see a wounded injured people Subhanallah following them, a people who they thought they defeated

00:12:25 --> 00:12:35

for them to be mentally defeated. That when the Qureshi that Subhanallah we thought they defeated them, but here they are following us back to Makkah, a battle didn't take place.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:55

But it's considered to be a battle because it was part of the battle of what it was the mental battle, that the Qureshi would go back to Mecca with question marks in their head that Subhanallah they buried 70 But did we defeat them? They were injured they were bleeding, and they walked with blood and pus coming out of the wounds following us who are these people?

00:12:56 --> 00:13:42

Let's say Allah revealed to Allah He know Allah has no one to mill alone, in Quinto macmini. This is a verse of glad tidings to the Ummah in early Imran while Attahiru Do not be weakened, while atta has no do not be saddened for those who you lost one tool alone you will rise over and will not be risen over in contempt meaning if you hold steadfast to Eman and belief we see in Surah Nisa, verse number 104. While I tell you if EBT ha Ilco inter Kulu to Allah Moon for inner homie Allah Munna Camerata Allah moon. But what are joola mean Allah He man, Ethel, June, there's a difference between you and them, what kind of Allah who and even Hekima in terms of this hemraj Al Asad, we see a verse

00:13:42 --> 00:14:20

connecting a Nisa to and Imran Allah subhanahu. Attallah reveals to the believers do not we can in pursuit of the enemy. This refers to hamre Al Asad, when the Prophet only called the injured to come out with him. Those who participated yesterday we are going out, Allah revealed do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy, if you are suffering and you should be suffering, they are also suffering just as you are suffering. But the difference between you and them is you expect from Allah that which they do not expect. You expect Jenna and the Acura and so on and so forth. And this is the mandate of the believers, My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that when it comes to Allah and His

00:14:20 --> 00:14:34

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam there's always going to be a level I don't like to use the word sacrifice. But a level of application of sacrifice gives the impression like we giving ourselves up. Without any game

00:14:35 --> 00:14:59

or color. We know this is not true. Whenever you give some of your wealth and some of your time for Allah, there's only gain Allah multiplies it and gives it back to you. He doesn't need you to be Allah. His Majesty is from ever and His Majesty is forever. There's always going to be a level of application not sacrifice that is needed from us. In the Torah, we have to stand and

00:15:00 --> 00:15:08

Sometimes we feel maybe the Imam could have shortened it here. Maybe the Imam could have read a shorter Witter, which we saw today.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:26

But aren't you standing Li and Nicotero Jumia Allah? Are you not standing because you want from Allah what others don't want? Where are you going to you leaving Allah to go to the dunya in one month out of 12 months,

00:15:27 --> 00:15:36

we have a Subhana Allah to Allah guide our affairs. Now we want to grow from the Quran. When Allah subhanahu wa Tada or if we continue with our journey,

00:15:38 --> 00:16:10

connecting the sorrows together we find in Surah Nisa further challenges to the narratives of the Christians and we discussed this yesterday there was a lot of challenges to the narratives in Surah Al Imran and at the end of Surah Surah Nisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Yeah, Hillel Kitab later roofie de Newcomb wala Taku Allah Hillel Huck, enamel Mercy who is Serbian Umaria ma rasool Allah he will carry metal and call her Isla Maria Maru from mid Furman will be la he will Rosalie well at a Kulu salah.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:58

Allah says oh people of the Scripture meaning the Christians do not commit excessiveness in your religion, and do not say about Allah except the truth. Jesus the son of Mary the mercy the Messiah was nothing but a messenger of Allah and His Word which he directed to Mary Maria Maria he Salem and a soul created at the command of Allah, a soul from Allah at his command. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and do not say Allah is free there's no Trinity. Interval Hydra lecom If you desist from mentioning this trinity, it is better for you in Nam Allahu Allahu Ahad indeed Allah is but one God. So we find this in the end of Surah Al as Surah Nisa

00:17:00 --> 00:17:01


00:17:02 --> 00:17:20

now, this is in terms of the connectivity of Surah Nisa to the sutras that we've just heard, and read over the past few nights of Ramadan in terms of Surah Nisa itself. The Nisa in the Arabic language refers to women Subhanallah an entire chapter in the Quran named after women.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:40

And if the brothers are thinking, well, where's the chapter name or region where we don't have that chapter, chapter named after the men? We don't have it but we have a chapter named after the women. And this is due to the volume of laws that Allah revealed about women in Surah Nisa, now I have a question for you. Is there another surah in the Quran?

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

That is known

00:17:44 --> 00:17:57

by the same name as Surah Nisa, what do you guys think? Yes or No? Have you come across another Surah that is called a Nisa, or similar to a Nisa or has been dubbed To Be An Nisa

00:17:59 --> 00:18:05

Surah which Surah Surah two palak Surah two palak is known as Surah Nisa.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:48

We have a cobra and we have a surah we have a cobra the larger Nisa The largest Surah to Lisa. That's the one that we read tonight. And we will complete tomorrow and we have the smaller Surah Nisa that is sort of took palak the laws about divorce, which you will hear inshallah towards the end of Ramadan. As for the composition of Surah Nisa. Then as we listened to the Imams this evening, we were taught about, number one, the beginning of mankind. Where did mankind come from? Number two, the nuclear family. Number three, the larger family meaning the interdependent relationships of the families with each other, in what constitutes the makeup of an entire ummah. Then Surah Nisa

00:18:48 --> 00:19:34

branches out and expands on the core of a family, with its foundation being female, and it speaks about her in her capacity as a daughter, and her capacity as a wife. And then Allah moves on to discuss her financial position in a marriage and that she enjoys by Allah's decree, financial independence, even if she comes into the marriage being richer than her husband, Allah subhanho wa Taala also disseminates into Surah Nisa her rights in a marriage the rights of a wife over her husband we find this in Surah Nisa. Then Allah goes on to discuss her Mahara and the rights of her Mahara the marriage dowry. Her financial rights have broader financial rights in terms of her

00:19:34 --> 00:19:59

living. The adab morals man has etiquettes towards her from her husband, matters pertaining to her inheritance, especially the inheritance from her father and her husband. The fifth rules pertaining to marriage, the sanctity of the marriage contract, the particulars pertaining to the Muharram and to the Musa Hara, meaning the people she cannot marry permanently and those who she cannot marry temporarily, then guide on

00:20:00 --> 00:20:44

on how to solve marital strife in case the marriage falls into turbulence, also Allah reveals about the responsibility of her husband towards his wife, particularly and the home. Generally all this we learnt about today in Surah, Nisa. And if we can reduce all of what I've just said, so far, we can say that a large chunk of Surah Nisa is dedicated to the obligation of being just and write it in capital letters J U. S, T, the opposite of oppression, just with those that you are responsible over and those that are vulnerable, and those who are weakened because of circumstances that may afflict them that are beyond their control.

00:20:45 --> 00:21:27

These three groups Surah Nisa covers, with the key and core message being justice. And in Sahih al Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you gain no victory or livelihood except through the blessings and doers of those who are vulnerable, and those who are dependent on you. Meaning, if Allah has made a people dependent on you, and you are just with them, that will be the core means of your blessings in your life, because Allah will bless you from the heavens. And Allah will also bless you because of the doers that those who you are responsible over because of the doers for you. He said the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the Minister of Environment, he said,

00:21:27 --> 00:22:10

Oh Allah, I declare sacred, the rights of the two dependent ones, the orphans and the women. And Allah discusses the orphans and the women in Surah, Nisa. So these blessings and do hours are generated from being just And subhanAllah. We can appreciate why an entire surah is named after women, because they are the most susceptible to oppression in society. And in Jaya Helia, they were not treated as human beings, but rather they were treated as a commodity. In fact, they experienced being buried alive when a person was given glad tidings that he had a child and then he found out that it was a daughter, Allah describes his face as a face that became blackened out of shame. This

00:22:10 --> 00:22:37

is how women were seen. So no one should teach the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about women's rights, because the Bastiaan of human rights indeed, is the Sharia of ALLAH SubhanA who were to add, and there's no revelation before the Quran that has an entire Surah named the chapter of the women SubhanAllah. Now, this is a good segue to

00:22:38 --> 00:22:45

unpackage for you all, all the different groups of vulnerable people we find mentioned in surah nisa

00:22:46 --> 00:23:05

vulnerable groups, we can groups because of circumstance, groups that are open to be oppressed. And if we listen carefully, today, we would have deduced 20 categories, I'm going to take you very quickly in Sharla 20 categories that Allah teaches us, that live amidst us that face vulnerability or weakness,

00:23:07 --> 00:23:46

sometimes due to personal circumstances, sometimes due to circumstances beyond their control, or sometimes due to the oppression of other people towards them. Let's go through them very quickly. Firstly, of course, women, and we see this in the name of the surah and the opening verse of the Surah, where Allah says she was created from him. And then in verse number four, Allah says, What to Nissa Ducati Hin and hella and give the women upon their marriage their bridal gifts graciously meaning their Mahara. And then Allah says for in Debian, Allah Kuma and che minha Wolfson, but only if them from themselves by themselves without any emotional blackmail, without any peer pressure,

00:23:46 --> 00:24:17

without any pressure from the customer. They themselves go to their husband and say, My dear husband is murder that you gave me I gifted back to you. Allah says only then for Kulu, honey and Maria, then take that wealth and spend it with satisfaction and ease. And the scholars of Islam are both attentive, see, they say the most blessed wealth ever to be spent is the wealth that a wife gives to her husband that was her Maha out of the happiness and pleasure of her heart. I cannot say this enough, because nobody should go home today and you know,

00:24:19 --> 00:24:55

you know, show the nice side of your face to your wife, or wink a little bit and say you know you had the hotbar today you had the lecture. They know hinting it should be something purely from them with no pushing or prodding, if they give this wealth back to the husband. Then Allah says, spend this wealth with satisfaction and happiness and the scholars say this is the most blessed well what you buy with it will be the most blessed purchase the most blessed transaction and suffer. So the women that's number one, number two, the male and female orphan. Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals very early on to protect their financial rights, warning the guardians who are holding their wealth

00:24:57 --> 00:25:00

that fear Allah with regards to their wealth. Allah says to

00:25:00 --> 00:25:33

Yeah, turmoil at home, well, etc. But then we'll have ether built by eBay and give to the orphans their properties, and do not substitute the defector from your own wealth for the good of this, that now you see the coming of age, I have to give them their wealth. So you look at your wealth, you take what is cheap, and you swap it with that which is better from their wealth and then you go to them and hand it over to them they innocent, they were young, they don't know the contents of the inheritance and that which was left for them by their fathers or their mothers before they passed away. So this is a warning to the guardians to look after them. orphans are susceptible to

00:25:33 --> 00:25:53

oppression. So that's the second group, the third group, those who are from the weak minded, don't set them up for failure. Rather set them up for success. Not just weak minded as well. Those who lack the necessary maturity. They are vulnerable. Allah reveals this in Surah Surah Nisa, Allah says why Allah to sufa

00:25:54 --> 00:25:57

Manuel Kumar como Leti journal

00:26:00 --> 00:26:00


00:26:02 --> 00:26:46

Fi have a clue whom work who Lulu whom kolam roof. Allah says and do not give the weak mind that your property which Allah has made a means of your sustenance for you, but provide with with it and clothe them and speak to them words of appropriate kindness, meaning, don't give money to a people that will know how to use it effectively. If they haven't reached a level of maturity, then buy for them their needs, rather than giving them the money and the money goes without them having covered themselves within it, meaning don't set them up for failure, set them up for success. This is one verse, Allah says in another verse about the wealth of the orphans, where they tell you Leah had

00:26:47 --> 00:27:27

either Bella who Nikka test the orphans until they reach the age of puberty, meaning give them small amounts of money, or give them scenarios take them with you, under your watchful eye allow them to engage in a transaction test the ability, how they transact, how they understand cost, how they understand value until they reach the age of puberty for India and US to men whom Rushton when they get to the age of puberty, they have a right to their wealth, but only hand over their wealth to them. If you see that they have mental maturity, financial maturity, if you see that they have that maturity, then immediately pay them money to them, give them their wealth, but until then hold the

00:27:27 --> 00:27:45

wealth and be calculated. compute how you manage their funds. Why do not set them up for failure? They can be vulnerable, they're subsets they're susceptible. If they don't have that financial maturity, they will go into the marketplace and be cheated. Allah reveals about them in Surah Nisa, that's the third group, the fourth group,

00:27:47 --> 00:28:09

look after the rights of the heirs, those who inherit, especially those who can be taken advantage of Allah says well Yaksha Latina otaku, mythical fame victory yet on the oven, half of it him fail yet Takala Walia, Kulu, colon sadita. And let those the executors of the world those who execute and the guardians of the world, let them fear any form of injustice.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:49

Regarding the weak, the vulnerable from those who have a right to the inheritance, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Let them fear Allah and let them ensure that they speak appropriate words, words that are just that you mean what you say. And you say what you mean. You mean what you speak, and you speak what you mean. You don't speak to them in a way with double barrel meanings to try and calm them and cheat them to try and put them in a confusion. And then when this goes to the coffee, it goes to the judge in case it does end up being a dispute. You have leeway in terms of your words, the play on words, the gymnastics that you use in your language, to try and save yourself from the

00:28:49 --> 00:29:30

consequences of your behavior. Allah says be just and speak Colin sadita messages, sentences, words that are very clear. So Allah looks after the rights as well. That's number four. Number five, the sinners because the sinners are vulnerable as well. And the sinner puts themselves in a vulnerable situation and circumstance. Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed in many places with Surah Nisa, we may or may also an oh yeah, that enough. So from my yesterday, yesterday Rila Haiji de la fura Rahim. Allah looks after the vulnerable Santa to say you've sinned, but don't let Shavon take advantage of you. The only shaytaan make you feel that you don't have any hope. Don't let shape and take you from

00:29:30 --> 00:30:00

sin to a greatest sandwiches disbelief. Allah says that whoever does a sin, wrongs themselves but then seeks forgiveness from Allah they will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful. Allah says why me exibit if map for in Cebu or an NFC what can Allah who are any man hacky map and whoever commits a sin only adds it against himself and Allah is ever knowing and wise look at the balance that Allah puts a person in because there's too vulnerable

00:30:00 --> 00:30:36

bilities here, the one where you have too much hope in Allah's forgiveness and mercy. So you sin without guilt, and the other one whereby you feel Allah's punishment so much, so you lose hope in His mercy and you go deeper and deeper into sin until you enter disbelief. Allah says two verses to look after the vulnerability, the vulnerability of a one who's the one who sins to keep them balanced that you've wronged yourself, but don't allow your loves to take you astray and don't allow your plan to take you astray. Surah Nisa has guidance for you. And in the case of a sinner projecting their sin onto other people, because the other party is weaker. Allah says what makes him

00:30:36 --> 00:31:17

happy. I know it's men from Yarrow. Maybe he burry and for Kurdish Tamela Bhutan or what if my Medina that whoever ends an offense or a sin and then blames another person for it to try and free themselves from the punishment. That's what we do what we they try and cook up evidence and projected onto someone else. Allah subhanahu Tada takes care of that someone else because that person is vulnerable because of the work and plot of this person. Allah says, whoever ends an offense or a sin and then blames it on an innocent person has taken upon Himself as lambda and the manifest sin. Group number six, the one who leaves thriving in Allah's way out of fear. Allah

00:31:17 --> 00:31:44

empowers this person, the one who is scared to go out in the path of Allah. They become vulnerable. They make the Eman vulnerable, they open a door to Shavon Allah the fields value cartography Serbia de la Hilah, the National higher dunya Bill era. Well May you cartographies a biller for your for your hotel Oh yeah, for labor for sofa, T Ajahn. oedema. Allah says so let those who fight in the Cause of Allah, who sell the life of this world for the hereafter,

00:31:45 --> 00:32:21

and he who fights in the Cause of Allah who is killed and achieves victory, Allah promises to give this person a greater reward, the reward of the after the reward of Jana, so the one who fears fighting in the path of Allah is vulnerable to the attacks of Shavon is vulnerable to the attacks of the hypocrites. Allah reveals verses to protect this vulnerable person, that oh seven of Allah. Don't fear fighting in the path of Allah, rather fear losing the price that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you don't fear us, giving up a bit of yourself for the sake of Allah, but rather fear losing the reward and price that Allah has for you. At the end of the day, what you seek will come

00:32:21 --> 00:32:58

to an end that this world is destined to be crumbled and folded and brought to an end and the only thing that remains is the akhira and your birthday to Sally hat that which you do for the sake of Allah subhanho Attack group number seven those who have rights over us Allah says what Abdullah What are two surely could be he che and what will Why do they need xn and what be the quarterback?

Come, there's many people around us who have rights over us. Allah reveals the vulnerable, because they're dependent on you Do not oppress these parties. Allah

00:32:58 --> 00:33:17

says Worship Allah, and to not associate partners with him and be excellent to your parents and to your relatives, and to the orphans and the needy, and the neighbor and the neighbor that's closest to you and the neighbor that's further away, and the companion at your side, even if it's the companion at your side in Salah as the scholars of say

00:33:18 --> 00:33:36

they have a right over here, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Whoever eats the onion do not come close don't come to our masala if you have if you standing with a smell, that is going to harm your neighbor, the person standing next to you that person has a right that you don't make him feel uncomfortable in his position in his salah.

00:33:37 --> 00:34:19

These are rights. People are vulnerable from our actions and our behaviors, our tongue in our hands and our actions. Allah reveals this about all those people who are vulnerable because of us because they have rights over us. We see this in Surah Nisa, group number eight mankind, for they are a weak creation and all of mankind is dependent on Allah. Allah says, in protecting mankind, you read Allah Who are you huffy? Funcom right at the beginning of the 50 Jews were Julio Collinson with the ephah Allah says Allah has created mankind week and Allah wants to lighten for you your Lord, your Lord, Allah has revealed the Sharia in a manner that is palatable in a manner that is manageable why Allah

So step by step, Baby Steps Try your best burn in don't burn out Allah reveals this in Surah Nisa, group number nine, the weaker party in a financial transaction sometimes we transact with people and by default by

00:34:41 --> 00:35:00

necessity of the transaction they are the weaker party because they are more in need of what we have then we are in need of what they have. Allah says yeah, you hola Dina Manu letter Aquila. Muela combiner Kumble Beltre inlanta Qulity Jonathan Antara dem income that all you who have believed do not consume one another's wealth and just

00:35:00 --> 00:35:42

slowly, but only in a lawful business transaction that is based on mutual consent, no force. No one feels forced to give up their right to what Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed in their position, their position, right? So Allah reveals this to look after the weaker party in a financial transaction. How many have we done? Nine? Group number 10, the poor and the needy. Allah says, Who are our Buddha Allah Oh ALLAH to Cherie qu b He che, the verse that we recited earlier, worship Allah and associate nothing with him and in their Allah mentions and look after the rights of the poor and the needy, especially with Zika it is their right when you hold that wealth for 12 months,

00:35:42 --> 00:36:22

Luna most months, you are holding somebody else's money in your account, do not see it as money that is yours that you have to sacrifice. It's not yours, somebody else has a right to it, you are withholding somebody else's right. That portion in your account is the right of the recipient of Zika. Look after the right of the vulnerable. They cannot come and take from your account. But that is their money in your account. They are vulnerable because of you. They are dependent upon you doing the necessary regarding taking care of the obligation that Allah has placed upon you. Allah looks after the rights group number 11. The new Muslim Subhanallah Surah Nisa leaves nobody out the

00:36:22 --> 00:37:02

new Muslim, Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals verses and we see for example, the verses about alcohol and how Allah made alcohol haram. He did it in stages, and the scholars deduce from this at the root, fifth, tertiary. That legislation happens in stages slowly but surely, whereby you allow people to burn in as I said earlier, when Allah made alcohol haram, he made it haram in stages. And in Surah Nisa, Allah revealed one of those stages that Oh you who believe do not go to the prayer whilst you are drunk. Right so now you have to pray five times a day and you cannot go to the prayer whilst you're intoxicated. What's what's going to happen naturally you're going to reduce your

00:37:02 --> 00:37:45

alcohol consumption. And that reduction is going to lead to you being weaned off any connectivity or connection to it. In time for when Allah reveals fetched and Eboo stay away from it in the Muhammad will Mesa as we will listen in the AR 10 verses coming up inshallah in the upcoming nights, group number 12. The Muslims at the time when the enemy is strong over them. Sometimes you in a situation where your enemy is strong over you, you vulnerable, Allah subhanahu wa Tada revealed guidance for the Muslims of Makkah, when they were being persecuted by the Quraysh Allah said LM Tara l Larina. Paella whom Khufu a the Como que masala

That's what you should do.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:48

This is guidance from Allah to protect the vulnerable situation of the person who's weak in front of a stronger enemy. Group number 13. Those who are weak in knowledge and understanding. Allah reveals a solution and that solution is to avoid oppressing themselves. By seeking knowledge. Allah says way there Jia Hua Maru Minella, amnio will hope he or there will be when they when and when they comes to them information about public security or via their spread it around out of panic. But Allah then reveals the solution he says, but if they had referred it back to the messenger, or to those of knowledge amongst them from the knowledgeable members of the Sahaba, Allah says, then the ones who

00:38:48 --> 00:39:09

could deduce the knowledge from the verses and laws of Allah would have known the answer to that I never would have known the reality of what needs to be done and what should be avoided. Allah says, and if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy you would have follow che upon except a few people. So Allah teaches us in this verse, that you are vulnerable when you are ignorant.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:46

And the solution is to seek knowledge. Allah tells them Why don't you go back to the rasool and the people of knowledge. In this day and age. The Rasul has passed away the inheritors of the messenger who, the scholars, we go to this corners and we ask many a time, we do things without asking, we pull the trigger, then we call the chef, Chef, this is what I did share for so many years that my soccer hasn't been paid share, you know, in the inheritance, this is how I distributed it, but why didn't you ask before you did it before you made the situation more complicated? You know, there was this cryptocurrency that came out or there was this token that came out immediately I invested Why

00:39:46 --> 00:39:50

did you invest before asking? Well, you know, there was a hype FOMO Fear Of Missing Out

00:39:51 --> 00:39:59

FOMO that's what they say. So I went into it. This is guidance, you are vulnerable. Allah is telling you what to do. If you only

00:40:00 --> 00:40:36

Even to the people of knowledge they would have told you what to do and what not to do and you'd be safe in terms of your relationship with Allah subhana who attack Okay, group number 14, those who are unable to go out in the path of Allah due to a disability. They are vulnerable to Satan's attacks that look others are doing for Allah and you will not Allah reveals to them that they are just the excused law. Yes, they will call you do not mean Mininova you're only 31 Bucha he will Nephi Sabi nila hibi M one one fusi him. Allah says Not equal are those believers remaining at home other than the disabled. Allah is revealing those who stayed at home and didn't go fight you not the

00:40:36 --> 00:41:13

same. The ones who went out in the path of Allah there are a level above those who stayed at home, but there's an exception. The exception is for those who were disabled. Group number 15 guidance for the one who is unable to stop evil Subhan Allah, Allah says, wickedness Zela and infantile Kitab and either Samira Tila, you Karoubi her while you stir his own behalf, fella taco Duma. Sometimes we are in a situation where people are doing wrong, and we can't stop it not with our tongue, not with our hand. What should we do? We should make dua with our heart. That's number one. And number two, we should leave the gathering. Allah says fella taco Duma, whom Allah says and it has already come down

00:41:13 --> 00:41:39

to you in the book that when you hear the verses of Allah being recited, they are denied by them and they are ridiculed by them. Allah says so do not sit with them until they enter into a different conversation. If you choose to sit with them, once they ridicule the revelation of Allah and the teachings of his Rasool intercom is a methylome you are like them. You are the same like them. It happens in our gatherings. People are backbiting and you can't say anything but you still sit

00:41:41 --> 00:41:45

and you allow your ears to consume the backbiting that's happening. In the least get up and leave.

00:41:47 --> 00:42:20

People will notice right that you had this conversation this person left that Subhanallah maybe we did something wrong, maybe we should ask them what happened. But we sit and that sitting is a form of endorsement. Allah is revealing in Surah Nisa that Allah is watching you, and the decision that you made and the seat that you took, and Allah is telling you that you were sitting makes you like them. They were vulnerable, they made you vulnerable. And now you all are vulnerable, you're vulnerable because of the situation the Quran has come to save you Surah Nisa has come to strengthen has come to protect you from being oppressed, has come with justice to help you in your circumstance

00:42:20 --> 00:42:52

in your situation. Now Allah grant is the understanding group number 16. The one who fears for the life the Sharia just the relaxes the rules, and we see this in the verses related to selected half that half a decade was reciting. And subhanAllah one thing stood out for me in those verses because we talking about a battle. The battle is happening and it's Salah time and Allah is in pray, you have to pray your Salah time you have to pray How should you pray, the whole situation the rules changes for for certain health. But then Allah subhanho To Allah says after that

00:43:03 --> 00:43:47

Allah says after you in the battle, you've done the salah is in the Salah, the remembrance of Allah, it is right after you finished remembering Allah with your Salah, remember Allah some more while standing while sitting while slaying La ilaha illallah recur Subhan Allah in the Quran is the only command that is the only a bad that Allah commands us to after anybody. He commands us to this a bad after commanding us to any bad and I was thinking about this we have it somewhere else in the Quran in order to Joomla ALLAH SubhanA who says, well you there could be at the salah too. So you finish the salah to drummer and that drummer was the remembrance of Allah fantastic you fill out go out in

Allah says then you can use your excuse for making do with water you can do to them right so we have this group also mentioned group number 18. The traveler, Allah subhanahu Tadesse is either verb to fill out Felisa Alikum do noun and

00:45:00 --> 00:45:36

Here's the evidence for shorting the prayer when you're a traveler in Surah Nisa because when you traveling you vulnerable stuff like when you're a resident, group number 19 The oppressed amongst the men and the women and the children.

And what is the matter with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah and for the oppressed amongst the men and the women and

00:45:36 --> 00:45:45

the children who say our Lord, take us out of the city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself I help.

00:45:47 --> 00:45:48

Does it ring a bell?

00:45:49 --> 00:45:51

Who do you think is making this dua today?

00:45:52 --> 00:45:54

And today we debate small matters.

00:45:56 --> 00:46:35

When we live at a time where we need to do everything in our capacity to help and oppress people, the Rohingya are making this dua, the people of Kashmir are making this dua, the people of Gaza are making this dua and the list goes on no servants of Allah. And then we are debating matters when we not even from the people of knowledge matters that are for the people of knowledge to discuss any fatwa on and we come and say no, this is sunnah. This is not sunnah to detract people from doing what they can to help a people who are making this cry. Allah is telling us they are vulnerable, they are oppressed. And Allah is looking at us at this time and in this manner, yes, the people have

00:46:35 --> 00:46:49

has been tested but but Allah He we are being tested as well. The people of Kashmir and the Rohingya are being tested, but Billahi we are being tested as well, by virtue of this verse, verse number 75, in Surah, Nisa,

00:46:50 --> 00:47:27

number 20 el calor Allah, but we live in Calella for tomorrow because Insha Allah we heard about Calella today, but we'll also hear about Calella tomorrow at the end of this particular surah I know we took a bit longer today, but inshallah it was worth it. We had Akshara Kameelah and we had another Archer Academy, the two by 10 equals 2020 vulnerable groups we learnt about in Surah Nisa, in the recitation of our Hoefer tonight in Darussalam Education Center, and Allah He if you ponder over these 20 categories that I just mentioned to you, you will pull out from them at least 18 action points that you and I need to engage in.

00:47:28 --> 00:48:04

Because them being vulnerable needs action from us. But that's beyond the scope of our time together, I will leave you to ponder over it. Last but not least included in the composition of the surah is the broader family discussion. As we mentioned earlier, we said the nuclear family and the broader family meaning the interdependent families of the Ummah, that Allah says all families of the Ummah of Muhammad you are connected, interdependent, and Allah subhanho wa taala. He mentioned to us that these families are we need to be connected together with Taqwa being the foundation of our connection, as we see at the beginning of the discussion, and then we see this recurring discussion

00:48:04 --> 00:48:53

on the qualities of the society. Throughout Surah Nisa, the qualities of a vibrant OMA, a vibrant society, the qualities of families that are interdependent like a well oiled machine, I've summarized them for you in four takeaway points number one attacker for which we can translate a solidarity or mutual support number two a 10 hours, which we can translate as advising and counseling. Number three at Tara home, which we can translate as compassion or empathy, number for a town, which we translate as cooperation. Allah reveals in Torah to Nisa, how the Muslim families must work with each other, those related by blood, but more importantly, those related by faith. The

00:48:53 --> 00:49:33

bond of faith is far greater than the bond of blood. As long as we are Muslims in a community, we are connected and that connection is to be upon the foundation of Taqwa. And as for the gears of this connection, then it's solidarity, counseling, compassion and cooperation. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the understanding. I mean, at the end, I leave you with the words of Abdul Rahman ibn Abdullah Hibben Massoud the son of Abdullah ibn Massoud, the great companions of the Allahu Allah. And since we are in a month of hope, he Subhanallah Did you something unique from Surah to Nisa, he said there are five verses in Surah Nisa. Because of these five verses, I am happy to be alive on

00:49:33 --> 00:49:55

earth. If it wasn't for these five verses, being alive on Earth would be a great torment and test. No doubt is still a test. But listen to the five verses number one in Allah Allah Yahweh Elohim, who meets Karla the era, he says the verse in which Allah said that Allah will not do injustice, even if it is as much as an atom's Wait.

00:49:57 --> 00:49:59

He says Allah then says

00:50:00 --> 00:50:50

We're in Turku Husain doing you though if you if you Timmy lead to new agile run now the Allah says and whoever does good, Allah will multiply your good and give you more rewards than you deserve from Allah subhanahu Attallah himself. He says this is verse number one that makes me pleased to be alive. Verse number two, Allah reveals in Taiji tiny boo cabeza aroma tune honer and newcath Fearon comes he do you come? When would you kill one who did he'll come Moodle kadang Karim. Allah says if you avoid the major sins, the major sins, Allah will forgive your minus sins for you and admit you into John. If you avoid the major sins and you carry on doing your Salah and your Juma on your on

00:50:50 --> 00:51:31

your Ramadan, without you asking ALLAH will forgive your minor sins for you. He says this verse SubhanAllah. It makes living palatable because the major sins okay but the minus ones, but Allah revealed in Surah Nisa, leave the major sins and without you asking, just pray your Salah, experience your Ramadan's experience your auras. These are periods of expansion, Allah will wipe your minuses for you, without you needing to ask Allah That's verse number two, verse number three in Hola Hola, Yahuwah Yahushua kabhi while you're through medulla Delica, Lima Yasha. He says I read the verse in Surah Nisa that indeed, Allah does not forgive anyone who associates partners with him,

00:51:31 --> 00:52:14

but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills Hamdulillah I don't associate partners with Allah. I'm a believer. I said La Ilaha illa Allah and Muhammad Rasool Allah, so I only have hope with my route as verse number three, verse number four. He says, Allah says one out of salami Rasul in Illinois, Utah, Arby's Nila Willow and the home is vellamo and Fusa. Home jell o Kapha. Stofer. Allah was stuck for Allahumma Rasul La Jolla to Werb and Rahima he says, I read in Surah, Tulisa, Allah saying and we did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by the will of Allah. And if they wronged themselves, meaning the people, they had come to you oh Mohamed after the wrong themselves

00:52:14 --> 00:52:51

if they came to Muhammad, and they asked the messenger to ask Allah to forgive them. Allah revealed that Roger to Allah had to Weber Rahima you will find Allah accepting of the repentance and merciful to them. And on the day of the AMA, the prophets of Allah who Allah he will send them will go to Allah and He will prostrate a prostration and he will praise Allah with words he's never known before Allah will teach him special names of Allah on that day. And then Allah will tell Muhammad Arafat get up and ask and I will give you and he's going to ask Allah for you and me, the Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says Allah revealed in Surah to Lisa, that when the

00:52:51 --> 00:53:33

messenger asks, Allah is saying, you will find Allah forgiving and merciful to you. What hope is this, that on the day of pm or when things are so scary? We know we have on our side if we die upon Amen, Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah revealed about him in Surah Nisa, verse number five, well, maybe I'm also an ally of the NAFSA who my Estelle thriller Yejide, la Fuhrer Rahima and whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself, but then seeks forgiveness of Allah, they will find Allah forgiving and merciful, that Oh, you who believe if you sin, no matter how many times you sin, never, ever lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. As long as you are breathing, that

00:53:33 --> 00:54:13

breath is a reminder to you that oh seven of Allah, you still have a chance to redeem yourself. You have a Lord who is waiting to forgive you, you have nothing to lose, no matter how many years you spend sending, no matter how bad the recurrence of the sin is, turn to Allah. Ask from Allah and have good hope in Allah that Allah has forgiven you that if you were to die moments after seeking that forgiveness, Allah will not ask you about it on the day of TM, five verses that the son of Abdullah has been Massoud Subhanallah mentions from Surah Nisa, for which he says it makes living palliative. May Allah subhanahu Attallah forgive us, May He make us from the family of Surah Nisa,

00:54:13 --> 00:54:30

and Al Imran and Al Baqarah and Al Fatiha and may Allah bless us in Alma ADA Bismillah his or Allah? May Allah accept our Ramadan and may He bless what remains which is Kamala O'Hara will have Allahu Allah wa sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala Ali he was so happy HMI
