00:00:00--> 00:00:04

Do not take these blessings for granted.

00:00:05--> 00:00:07

Allah is sharing them a parallel

00:00:07--> 00:00:10

that they were better, stronger, richer people than

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

you, and we turned their circumstances because they

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

were arrogant and denied. The Muslims were faced

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

with an army they've never met before,

00:00:17--> 00:00:18

an army of 10,000.

00:00:20--> 00:00:22

And they had nothing in Madinah to help

00:00:22--> 00:00:24

them ward off an army of this number.

00:00:24--> 00:00:26

And they weren't just an army of 10,000,

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

this was an army that intended

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

complete destruction.

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

They intended to wipe Madinah off the face

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

of this earth.

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

The intent was to remove Islam once and

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

for all.

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

This was the in this was the intent.

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

Don't let the Eid banquet after 30 days

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

of righteousness be a mixed affair with non

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

mahrams laughing and talking and joking with each

00:00:47--> 00:00:50

other whilst they dress beautifully for one husband

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

to look at another person's wife. To the

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

extent that you find some men calling other

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

people's wives by nicknames that their own husbands

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

call them. This is the level of easiness

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

that we have between us, and this is

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

not from Islam.

00:01:02--> 00:01:02

Islam.

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

Allah didn't reveal this in any way.

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

We begin in the name of Allah Subhanahu

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

Wa Ta'ala, and we request praises and blessings

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

upon

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

Rasulullah. Alhamdulillahrubilaaalamin,

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

we've begun the 21st

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

night of Ramadan as of Maghrib today.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

And as I mentioned to you earlier,

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

we have now embarked on the final chapter

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

of Ramadan.

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

Our guest arrived,

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

and now we're counting the days

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

to our guest's departure.

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

But our guest, being generous, doesn't want us

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

to focus on the sadness of the departure.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

It wants us to focus on the present,

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

and it wants us to benefit as much

00:01:50--> 00:01:50

as we can.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

And it wants us no doubt to remember

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

that the Allah of Ramadan

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

is the Allah of every month of daya.

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

It doesn't mean

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

that when Ramadan leaves, then

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

fasting leaves,

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

recitation of the Quran leaves,

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

standing the night in prayer leaves,

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

it doesn't mean any of this. So it's

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

not

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

a month

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

that

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

distills within it the worship of Allah.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

And then when the month leaves, the worship

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

of Allah leaves as well.

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

By no means or way is this the

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

month of Ramadan. And if this really was

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

Ramadan, then Ramadan wouldn't be kareem.

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

It wouldn't be generous.

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

Now Now as we begin this night, subhanAllah,

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

there's other blessings that we have. I remember

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

before I departed, I asked Allah

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

to

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

not forbid us from seeing each other's faces,

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

and, alhamdulillah, I see many

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

familiar faces, which means Allah preserved us in

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

his obedience, Insha'Allah.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

There are some brothers that are missing, but

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

upon

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

prior follow-up, I've understood they've gone for umrah,

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

masha'Allah. May Allah

00:03:02--> 00:03:02

accept from them,

00:03:03--> 00:03:05

and may Allah inspire them to remember us

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

in the du'a. Amin.

00:03:08--> 00:03:08

Also,

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

with this being the 21st night, Darus Salam's

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

last 10 nights youth program will kick off,

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

the night arises,

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

insha'Allah,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

and the Fajr nights program. So there's 2

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

programs kicking off tonight for our youth given

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

that they're on holiday,

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

for our younger youth and our older youth,

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

and inshallah, you'll hear about that just now.

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

Another thing, and I want to use this

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

as an opportunity,

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

given that we are in the month of

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

Al Quran,

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

and we are in the last 10 nights,

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

one of these nights was the nights in

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

which the Quran was revealed.

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

Alhamdulillah,

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

very recently,

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

my book on Surah Yusuf was published and

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

released, Alhamdulillah.

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

Now many of you received it, I know,

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

because I've been getting videos and images, Alhamdulillah.

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

But it's the first time that I actually

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

today, managed to hold it because I just

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

arrived back in the country a few hours

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

earlier.

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

And, I wanted to take the opportunity of

00:04:01--> 00:04:04

unwrapping it for the first time, opening it,

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

during this eventful night, masha'Allah,

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

after this eventful Ibadah

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

front of you all, alhamdulillah, harubillahalamin.

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

So masha'Allah, tabarakallah, this book is,

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

an explanation of Surah Yusuf, and it

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

encompasses almost 2 decades of my journey

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

with the Surah. I first started teaching the

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

Surah in 2,006 or thereabout.

00:04:27--> 00:04:27

2,005

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

and 2,006. And no doubt the inspiration is

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

always when it comes to surah, Yusuf ibn

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

Al Qayyib statement that Allah has left in

00:04:36--> 00:04:38

the surah more than 1,000 benefits.

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

But Ibn Al Qayyim

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

he passed away without writing the book

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

with the benefits.

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

So Allah inspired

00:04:47--> 00:04:50

after him people who embarked on this journey,

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

and I asked Allah to make me one

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

from from them. I have a copy in

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

front of me, Alhamdulillah.

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

It's the copy that I've opened, and what

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

I will do is I will pass it

00:04:58--> 00:04:58

to,

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Zakir. He will flip through it, and then

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

he will pass it along insha'Allah,

00:05:03--> 00:05:04

whilst I present,

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

the summary of,

00:05:07--> 00:05:07

tonight's,

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

reading insha'Allah.

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

Please don't go off with the book, Yani.

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

He pass it to the next person, and

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

if you want a coffee, inshallah, I will

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

let you know how you can get one.

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

I know the sisters as well, perhaps inshallah,

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

we can get, the book to them as

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

well.

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

Today, we heard the 22nd Jews of the

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

Quran.

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

And predominantly we travel through 4 surahs.

00:05:30--> 00:05:30

We

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

started with Surah Al Ahzab,

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

or what remained of Surah Al Ahzab, because

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

yet last night

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

you started the surah with our Imams

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

during,

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

20th night of Ramadan.

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

So we started with the remainder of Surah

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

Al Ahzab.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

Thereafter, we went to another surah, Surah Sabah.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

Surah Sabah can be can have a sting

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

like Surah Al Nahal.

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

Surah Nahl also has a sting when I

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

Surah Nahl is a surah of the bee.

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

So I say sting because those who are

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

reading tarawih, when it comes to Surah Nahl

00:06:02--> 00:06:02

generally,

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

they see whose portion is it, because Surah

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

Al Nahal has it

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

can sting you a little bit if you

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

if you are happy then, you know, the

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

hif wasn't strong

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

at the time when you're memorizing.

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

Surah Saba can have that as well, although

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

our hafidhaqir masha'Allah,

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

Allah bless him, he's a

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

strong Hafid,

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

After that,

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

we moved on to Surat Al Fathir, and,

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

Hafid

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

he pursued Surat Al Fathir after Hafiz Zakir

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

began it, and then alhamdulillah we had Surah

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

Yaseen at the end, and who doesn't know

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

Surah Yassin? But we only started Surah Yassin,

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

insha'Allah,

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

we will complete Surah Yassin tomorrow.

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

Now Surah Al Ahazab, very quickly,

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

is called Surat Al Ahazab

00:06:49--> 00:06:49

predominantly

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

because of a historical event. And I'm sure

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

we all know of a battle I pass

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

it to your right. I pass it to

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

your right now.

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

We all know of a famous battle known

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

as the Battle of the Trench.

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

The Battle of the Trench, also known as

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

Al Ahazab

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

in which the Quraysh and the Khafavan

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

surrounded Medina with collaboration

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

with the collaboration of the hypocrites

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

and the Jews, in particular Banu Qurayvah.

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

And this was a very try trying time

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

for the believers

00:07:22--> 00:07:22

because

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

the Muslims were faced with an army they've

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

never met before,

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

an army of 10,000,

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

And they had nothing in Madinah to help

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

them ward off an army of this number.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

And they weren't just an army of 10,000.

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

This was an army that intended complete destruction.

00:07:37--> 00:07:37

They intended to wipe Madinah off

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

the

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

destruction. They intended to wipe Madinah off the

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

face of this earth.

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

Their intent was to remove Islam once and

00:07:47--> 00:07:47

for all.

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

This was the in this was the intent.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

It was one of those situations where we

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

say enough is enough.

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

It was 13 years

00:07:56--> 00:07:56

of

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

the maneuvers and propaganda campaigns against the prophet

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

sallallahu alaihi wasallam in Makkah. Then he went

00:08:05--> 00:08:08

to Madinah, And in Madinah, things began to

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

grow. And not only did it begin to

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

grow, but we see Muslim civilization

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

kicking off. We see the first Muslim city.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

We see

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

the Muslim

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

state and the functions of the state coming

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

to be. There was a progressive system that

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

didn't even exist in Makkah. You had Mashidun

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

Nabawi, which was the center of all affairs.

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

It was the ministry of da'wah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

It was the ministry of,

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

health.

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

It was the ministry

00:08:36--> 00:08:37

of education,

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

it was the ministry of public affairs

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

and, Media.

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

All these took place from Mashrul Nabawi. It

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

was it was center. The prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

wasallam would gather in Mashrul Nabawi with the

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

sahaba and

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

shura used to take place. It was parliament,

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

if I may use the term. He would

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

sit here, and this is where the shura

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

discussions would happen. In fact, after the battle

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

of Uhud,

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

the injured from Uhud were brought to Mashir

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

e Nabiwe, and this is where they were

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

treated, and thus I say the Ministry of

00:09:05--> 00:09:08

Health. We know that Abu Hurairah was from

00:09:09--> 00:09:10

the graduates, the alumni

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

of Masjid Al Nabawi. He was from Ahlus

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

Sufa, he used to live in the Masjid

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

because there were no more homes of the

00:09:16--> 00:09:16

Ansar

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

for the Muslims to be placed with. So

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam let them

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

stay in the masjid. So you can say

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

it was the also the minister of social

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

affairs, subhanAllah.

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

So we had the Masjid.

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

And then the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

had treaties. He had treaties with the Jews,

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

the surrounding people, with these faith based communities,

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

or the Jews were they were a faith

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

based community, had a treaty with them, a

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

treaty of cooperation, and a treaty of defense

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

as well, of support.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

Right?

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

So

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

and there were other things that were happening.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

So, obviously, for the Quraysh, this was

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

far too progressive than they anticipated.

00:09:53--> 00:09:56

That not only was Islam spreading, but now

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

it had a system.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

Islam had a home

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

to

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

spread its wings to the rest of the

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

globe, and it was taking away from the

00:10:04--> 00:10:08

limelight of Makkah. Makkah didn't have this. Makkah

00:10:08--> 00:10:08

had ignorance.

00:10:09--> 00:10:10

Makkah had darkness.

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

Makkah had Jahiliyyah.

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

The Quraysh were still upon their ways of

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

gambling and alcohol and treating women as commodity

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

and so on and so forth.

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

They had all of this, but Madinah, subhanAllah,

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

it had common sense. It had rationale.

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

It had a system. It had sustainability.

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

It had a legal system, a justice system.

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

It wasn't the system of the Quraysh.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

So the Quraysh really intended to change the

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

geographical landscape of the globe. And if I

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

can tie events

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

to what's happened in our recent past, the

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

end of 2023 October 7th, you find the

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

similar kind of sentiment

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

that it is a people and a nation

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

wanting to

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

ultimately wipe out an area off the face

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

of the cloth. That's what you can see.

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

And they amassed 10,000 for this. Now this

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

was a trying time for the believers,

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

because Medina wasn't yet rich.

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

The Sahaba was still managing things

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

and when you have less financial resources you

00:11:09--> 00:11:11

need to apply a lot of physical resources

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

so naturally it makes you tired,

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

and they didn't have the numbers,

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

they didn't have the artillery, they didn't have

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

the weaponry, they didn't have the animals to

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

manage this, nor the horses, nor the camels,

00:11:24--> 00:11:25

they didn't have this,

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

If they put all the animals together, it

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

wouldn't match what was coming to meet them.

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

And the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, he

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

sits in Mashirun Nabawi with the Sahaba,

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

and he engages in the process of shura.

00:11:38--> 00:11:38

Parliament

00:11:39--> 00:11:39

is active,

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

and there's no greater ideas. Everybody,

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

the Sahaba were never a people who were

00:11:47--> 00:11:47

despondent,

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

but in this particular case just for the

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

sake of being practical there were no

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

ideas that really were sound,

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

except one

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

from the Persian companion,

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

Salman,

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

who said, look, in Persia, when they fight

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

the Romans and they meet these large armies,

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

they disturb their movement. How? By digging trenches.

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

But you gotta

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

remember, these are experienced

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

trench diggers,

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

and then it's not a case of them

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

having camels and horses.

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

They have elephants with them. They have weaponry

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

with them. They have metal and steel with

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

them. This is something they can do.

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

The Muslims didn't have experience. They didn't have

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

the manpower. They didn't have the animal power,

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

resource power. They didn't have this. But they

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

had no choice, and the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

wasallam in light of seeing no other

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

idea that would beat the idea of Salman,

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

he opted for it. Now you have to

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

understand

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

that this would entail great effort from the

00:12:48--> 00:12:48

Muslims,

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

and they dug. We're talking about a trench

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

that was meters deep and kilometers wide. It's

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

not this little part that you see when

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

you go to Madinah known as the Saba

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

Ama Sajid

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

takes you on the bus and you just

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

see this little hilltop and they say this

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

is where,

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

the the handak. They say this is where

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

the battle of the trench took place. This

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

is just a portion of it.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

This is where the battalions were stationed,

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

and it's to highlight to you how severe

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

the matter was that they couldn't pray as

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

one Jannah'ah, you have seven places of prayer

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

so close to each other

00:13:18--> 00:13:20

so in close proximity you can see 7

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

places of prayer that's what Saba Amasaajid means

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

7 places where they congregated to pray

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

This is how intense the battle was, nobody

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

could leave their post.

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

And not only this, when the Quraysh finally

00:13:32--> 00:13:32

arrived,

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

obviously, the battle didn't begin

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

because they were faced with a shock themselves.

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

They didn't have this experience before facing a

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

trench

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

in front of

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

them that acted as an obstacle between them

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

and their enemy.

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

So it lasted. They camped,

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

and the Muslims had to be diligent

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

and

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

vigilant

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

for a long period of time. They were

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

low on energy. They were low on food,

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

and they still had to stay awake. They

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

still had to,

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

be diligent. They still had to be active.

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

They had to be focused.

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

This took a toll. On top of this,

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

you have the hypocrites

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

who want the other side to win.

00:14:12--> 00:14:14

So they're trying to disunite the Muslim ranks

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

and they use the same tool that Shaitan

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

uses, pull you to the dunya, tell you

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

about your wives, tell you about your children,

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

make you scared that perhaps at the back

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

they're harming them. Your 2 women are gonna

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

be raped and your children are gonna be

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

taken as slaves.

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

So now you by the place of the

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

trench and you half your mind and heart

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

is somewhere else. This was happening.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

Then there was the Jews, Banu Qoreidah. The

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

Muslims didn't dig a trench on their area

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

because the Arabs,

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

if anything even though they had this ignorance

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

they wouldn't break treaties

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

even though they had this jahiliyah

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

this darkness to them there were certain traits

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

they had that were praiseworthy. When it came

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

to treaties, they would maintain it.

00:14:56--> 00:14:56

Nonetheless,

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

the Jews with the Muslims thought,

00:14:59--> 00:15:02

well, with one eye and one ear, that

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

we don't need to dig a trench there

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

because they are there and we have a

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

security pact with them. They will not allow

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

the Quraysh to enter Madinah. From there, they

00:15:10--> 00:15:10

started

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

entertaining the idea, and that Allah subhanahu wa

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

ta'ala informed the prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

This was heavy for the Muslims, and Allah

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

tells in Suratul Hazab how difficult this was.

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

Allah says,

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

when they came to you

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

from above,

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

from underneath.

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

The matter was so severe for you, oh

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

Sahaba, all Muslims.

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

You couldn't even focus your eyes were you

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

know what happens when you fear and there's

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

so many things going on and you overwhelmed

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

your eyes start looking all over the place

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

because you're constantly thinking there's a 1,000 thoughts

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

going on in your head,

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

Allah is describing us, he's painting an image

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

of what was happening. This is known as

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

a taswirul qurani, the imagery of the Quran.

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

Subhanallah. This is happening for us in Suratul

00:15:56--> 00:15:56

Hazab.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

Allah is telling us about the sahaba.

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

Those who are with the messenger salallahu alayhi

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

wa sallam. Those who had highest demand the

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

ummah will ever experience.

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

Allah is telling us of how hard he

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

tested them.

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

Allah says we tested you so hard, not

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

only were your eyes

00:16:15--> 00:16:15

wayward,

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

but your heart was beating so hard you

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

felt it was in your throat. We say

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

this in the English language.

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

Allah

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

says

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

your heart reached your throats.

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

Then Allah says, subhanAllah,

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

that not only this, Allah knows what was

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

happening in your heart. You dare not say

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

it, but Allah saw it in your heart.

00:16:37--> 00:16:41

You started entertaining thoughts of about Allah that

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

you never ever entertained before.

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

Meaning, even the trust you had in Allah

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

was starting to shake.

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

That is how hard you were tested.

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

Allah says

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

That was when we truly tested the believers.

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

And we shook them a great shaking.

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

SubhanAllah.

00:17:01--> 00:17:03

Allah describes this for us.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

We think of our brothers and sisters in

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

wazah. They are being shaken and great shaking.

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

The test of Allah has come upon them

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

from above and from within from underneath, and

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

we see the eyes.

00:17:17--> 00:17:18

We hear the screams.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

We hear the heartbeats from the throat.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

Allah indeed is testing them.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

But as I read to you these verses

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

of Surat Al Ahab,

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

and I reveal to you the story of

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

the Hazab,

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

I sometimes think to myself,

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

are the people of Gaza being tested harder,

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

or is it you and

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

me? Who is being tested harder?

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

Is it the people of Gaza or you

00:17:45--> 00:17:45

and I?

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

Subhanallah.

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

Because the people of Gaza are being true

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

to the imam and

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

the ummah testifies to this because we see

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

the images.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

But what are we doing, my brothers and

00:17:58--> 00:17:58

sisters in Islam?

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

What movement have we made to the sunnah

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam?

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

What journey have we made to the mandates

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

of the Quran and the sunnah?

00:18:08--> 00:18:11

What retraction have we made from sin and

00:18:11--> 00:18:11

vice?

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

What efforts have we made to correct those

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

within our sphere of influence? Or is it

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

business as usual and life as normal?

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

Are we still living through Ramadan, waiting for

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

the end of Ramadan to return to our

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

old ways?

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

Then I'm on a hold of Netflix now

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

for now, but when after it, I'll check

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

which are the new movies that were released

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

in it.

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

For now, I'll be patient.

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

Is that our mandate?

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

Who is being tested greater?

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

Because this Ummah is one body,

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

when one part is affected the rest of

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

the body reacts

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said there's a

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

reaction

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

there's a reaction,

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

and he likens it to fever and sleepless

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

nights.

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

Wallahi.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

Where's our sleepless nights?

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

Where are our sleepless nights? We still complain

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

about the tarawih being too long or too

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

short, or the imam having extra tasbih in

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

his ruku or sujud. Not you, of course.

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

But in general, this is a general remark

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

that we hear.

00:19:12--> 00:19:13

So

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

are they being tested or are we being

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

tested? Because as they are being tested, rest

00:19:18--> 00:19:19

assured Allah is going to hold us also

00:19:19--> 00:19:22

accountable. He's gonna call us all that you

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

are part of the Ummah at the time

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

when I shook a portion of you, what

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

did you do?

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

That perhaps

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

you adopting 1 sunnah

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

even if it was as small as putting

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

a miswak in your pocket to use during

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

the day because the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

sallam used it, That could have been the

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

means, maybe, of 1 child being pulled out

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

of the rubble alive. The barakah of that

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

act maybe.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

Have you ever thought about it like that?

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

That maybe

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

the extra duas that you are making, instead

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

of shying away from making it, or burning

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

out with regards to your duas, was a

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

means of a building surviving an explosion,

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

and hundreds of people

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

having their lives intact. Just because of one

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

Dua that you made.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

That maybe

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

you chose to release yourself

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

from the chains of culture

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

that tied you to ideas that the Quran

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

speaks against directly

00:20:19--> 00:20:20

And because of that, subhanallah,

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

a family

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

was saved in Gaza

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

after a bombing.

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

Don't underestimate the barakah of Ta'a and righteousness,

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

So if we talk about Surat Al Azaab,

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

then I'm representing it to you Surat Al

00:20:35--> 00:20:35

Azaab.

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

That there are verses that I read, but

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

these are deductions that that the Quran throws

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

out at us

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

and throws out to us because the Quran

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

is a guide.

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

So as

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

things are happening, we need to see the

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

reaction.

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

We need to see the reaction.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

The Masaijid need to get fuller.

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

That that's a reaction. People subhanallah, the Muslims

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

are reacting. They're turning back to their Lord.

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

But, wallahi, let's be honest. It still a

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

case of they are there, we are here.

00:21:05--> 00:21:05

Alhamdulillah,

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

may Allah make everything easy for them.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

Brothers and sisters in Islam, you know what

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

Surat Al Hazab is telling us?

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

That if you want Islam to be honored,

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

if you want the honor to come back

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

to the Muslims,

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

I don't want to use the word sacrifice.

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

You know I don't like that word because

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

that entails you giving up something for nothing.

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

You know when you give for Allah, he

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

always gives you back, it's always investment, right?

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

But you need to spend a bit of

00:21:27--> 00:21:27

yourself,

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

you need to become a bit uncomfortable,

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

you cannot expect honor to come to this

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

Ummah whilst you are comfortable,

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

you cannot,

00:21:36--> 00:21:39

It can never happen. If you wake up

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

every day and Islam is there, but after

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

the 60,000 other things I have to do

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

after the duniya, then you are thinking wishfully.

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

This is not how Izzah and honor comes

00:21:47--> 00:21:47

with the Umbah.

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

This is what Surah Al Ahazab is telling

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

us. That you want Izzah to come, you

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

have to be a part of the system.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

It has to be on your mind, in

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

the front of your mind, in the middle

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

of your mind, the back of your mind,

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

the front of your heart, the back of

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

your heart, the middle of your heart.

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

How you raise your kids,

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

how you speak to your parents,

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

the discussion you have with your friends,

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

the reprioritization

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

of your hobbies,

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

and your timetables.

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

This is where Izzah comes to the Ummah

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

because now you've made Islah

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

al Umma,

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

Islah a nurse, tazeez, a deen,

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

honor of the deen and raising the ummah

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

at the forefront of your of your existence

00:22:28--> 00:22:31

so that your existence becomes a substantial existence

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

not a mere existence.

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

But unfortunately, we still have this, my job,

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

my this, my travel, you know, back home,

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

Pakistan, India, where, where, I'll do this, my

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

land, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And, yeah, if I

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

have extra, then, yeah, for Islam, and we

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

wish for Islam, Islam.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

Look at the whole Zakkad discussion today I

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

was just with the brothers and sisters in

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

Malaysia I was there for the last weeks

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

I was having the same discussion with them

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

that every little chance to do good we

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

ask is it a zakah applicable? You salam

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

zakah applicable, is this the only propensity you

00:23:03--> 00:23:04

have for your Lord?

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

A pillar of Islam which he made obligatory

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

upon you and gave you no choice in.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

This is the only scope you are willing

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

to operate within, in terms of your financial

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

worship?

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

When in actual fact, Zakah is somebody else's

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

money in your account. Who are you to

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

say is Zakah applicable?

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

It's already somebody else's money in your account.

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

You have the burden of getting it out

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

of your account.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

The Sahaba radiAllahu anhu Majumayeen, and I think

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

I've mentioned it this to you before.

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

Zakah wasn't a Ramavan endeavor for them.

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

Zakah was in Muharram or Rajab.

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

The books of fiqh list list Ramadan as

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

the weakest view in terms of it being

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

the month for Zakah.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

It's not a problem to make it Ramadan.

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

But the pious before us, who Allah praises

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

in Suratul Ahzab,

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

they gave out their zakah before Ramadan, so

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

they could focus in Ramadan and sadaqa.

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

Because they knew that this is the ummah

00:24:01--> 00:24:02

of all nations,

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

and previous nations Allah told them to pay

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

10% in zakah.

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

But we are a special nation

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

and even in our laws, Allah shows us

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

that we are special, that Allah will make

00:24:11--> 00:24:14

us pay 2.5 because we will pass 10%

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

by ourselves,

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

but are we there?

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

We struggle just to hit 2.5

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

and we want the rules to change to

00:24:21--> 00:24:24

make a non Zakatable project zakatibal because we

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

can only help it from zakah.

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

So if this is our mindset, then we're

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

going against the miya ayat of Surat Al

00:24:31--> 00:24:31

Ahazab.

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

There's so much to say from Surat Al

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

Ahzab. We haven't even gone to the next

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

Surah. Allah will understand.

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

Bayib Surat Al Ahzab,

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

73 verses.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

And it is a Madani Surah. And as

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

I told you before I left Madani Surahs

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

are filled with legislation because they were revealed

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

after Hijra when Islam had a state.

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

Now what is the relationship between Surah to

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

lahazab and the Surah before? What's the Surah

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

before lahazab that you had?

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

Surah?

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

Sajda, ascent.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Allah knows best. If we look at the

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

end of Surah Sajda,

00:25:02--> 00:25:02

Allah

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

commands the messenger salallahu alaihi wa sallam to

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

be defiant against the way of the disbelievers

00:25:08--> 00:25:11

and to patiently await the appointed punishment.

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

This is what we see at the end

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

of Surah Sajda. I think you can see

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

where I'm coming from now because Al Hazab,

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

what does it tell us?

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

Us? At the end of Surah Sajidah,

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:25:23--> 00:25:25

reveals to the messenger a command.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

A command to be defiant against the way

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

of the disbelievers and to be patient.

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

Wait for Allah's plan. The punishment is coming,

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

wait for it. At the opening of Surah

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

Al Hazab, Allah commands the messenger towards taqwa

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

and not falling prey to the way of

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

the disbelievers and the hypocrites.

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

By following strict by following strictly what Allah

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

revealed to him and for him to place

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

his trust in Amlah. Look at the connection.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

An end and a beginning.

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

Even though one surah is from an era,

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

and surahulahazabi

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

is from another era.

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

This is the eloquence of the Quran. Allah,

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

no one can do this. Over 23 years,

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

everything being pieced together

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

with such tapestry, fine tapestry,

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

could only be from the Lord of the

00:26:10--> 00:26:10

worlds.

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

So this is the relationship.

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

Then

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

in terms of the contents of the surah,

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

then as we said, it's filled with the

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

legislation. From them, we find laws pertaining, and

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

this is unique

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

to the wives of the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

wasallam. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:26:28--> 00:26:30

settles the affairs of the prophetic household.

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

That this was a ripe

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

time

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

Allah sets the affairs straight of the prophetic

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

household

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

and in effect

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

every Muslim household.

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

Because if these laws apply to our mothers,

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

the mother of the believers,

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

then no doubt every female after them, because

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

who can be more righteous than them?

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

If they are the righteous of the righteous,

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

the creme de la creme, the cream of

00:26:53--> 00:26:53

the crop,

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

and they are told to observe certain

00:26:56--> 00:26:59

matters that no doubt every female after them

00:26:59--> 00:26:59

this applies.

00:27:00--> 00:27:02

In the first instance.

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

Allah

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

in Surah Al Ahab begins also, not begins

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

but continues canceling

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

some of the norms of jahiliyah,

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

such as adoption or tabani,

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

adoption when you change the name and lineage

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

of the child that you adopted. This was

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

canceled in the Quran.

00:27:18--> 00:27:21

Then dwehar, this was another prominent thing during

00:27:21--> 00:27:21

jahiliyah,

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

where a husband would liken his wife to

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

the back of his mother, meaning making her

00:27:26--> 00:27:29

haram for him, but keeping her locked in

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

the marriage. Allah abolished this.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

Also, the belief

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

that the people of Jahiliyah had that a

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

human being has 2 hearts. Allah abolished this

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

understanding in Suratul Hazab.

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

And also,

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

that the the belief

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

that they had of the waiting period of

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

a female who is divorced before consummation of

00:27:48--> 00:27:50

the marriage takes place. This is also dealt

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

with in Surat Al Ahzab.

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

Also, we find the rules of hijab

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

being compulsory upon the wives of the messenger

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, and the female believers

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

coming down, this is in Suratul Ahazab.

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

And we also find evidence of salawat upon

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

the messenger sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and it

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

being a part of faith. We find this

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

in Suratul Hazar.

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

And then we move on to Surat Saba.

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

I'm gonna just do a quick run through

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

and then we'll touch on some key ayat.

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

In Surat Saba,

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

we find

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

a different genre of knowledge

00:28:20--> 00:28:20

because

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

from a Madinan Surah, you jump to a

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

Makkan Surah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

So you went you're reading the Quran. You

00:28:26--> 00:28:28

come into Surah Al Hazab. It's heavy. Low,

00:28:28--> 00:28:30

low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low,

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

low, low, and just when you feel it

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

might be too much, Allah brings a Makk

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

and Surah consisting of 54 verses,

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

and in it,

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

we see the genre of ilm pertaining to

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

ayat before revelation, which

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

we know focus on what? Tawhid,

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

belief in the hereafter,

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

establishing the messenger as the messenger,

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

belief in the Quran as being God sent,

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

the word of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. So

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

you see this balance between iman

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

and action.

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

Iman and action. That when people fail, and

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

you can deduce this from how Allah has

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

put if we go with the view that

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

the the the order of the surahs was

00:29:05--> 00:29:06

from Allah because there's 2 opinions of the

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

scholars.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

Who put these surahs in the order? Was

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

it the consensus of the sahabah?

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

Or was it Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala?

00:29:14--> 00:29:16

And scholars opine that it was Allah subhanahu

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

wa ta'ala and this was known during the

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

final Ramadan, when the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:29:21--> 00:29:23

revised the Quran twice with Jibril.

00:29:23--> 00:29:26

When the final abrogations happened, and the Quran

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

was set in final.

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

So the order was how it was, and

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

that's how the sahaba laid it out.

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

But irrespective, if it was with tajma after

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

sahaba, then it's God inspired.

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

Because then jama cannot happen.

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

The ummah will never ever settle

00:29:41--> 00:29:43

upon a matter of misguidance as the prophet

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

sallallahu alaihi wasallam said. That if this ummah

00:29:46--> 00:29:48

settles on something that Allah inspires all the

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

hearts to agree, then that is godly

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

inspired. So you if you deduce from this,

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

how we find in this Surah, a Surah,

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

a Madani Surah with legislation followed by a

00:29:59--> 00:30:02

surah, you see this, that if a person

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

feels difficulty

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

in implementing

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

the the legalities of Islam, then it has

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

a direct connection to the weakness of the

00:30:10--> 00:30:10

Iman

00:30:11--> 00:30:12

the stronger the Iman

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

the easier it is for you to apply

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

the laws

00:30:15--> 00:30:16

the weaker your Iman

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

the harder it is for you to apply

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

the laws so if the laws of hijab

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

are hard for you

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

the laws of the home are hard for

00:30:24--> 00:30:24

you

00:30:25--> 00:30:26

then go to Surah Sabah and build your

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

iman.

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

And you will come back to ahazab and

00:30:29--> 00:30:31

you'll be able to follow it. For Allah

00:30:31--> 00:30:34

establishes his oneness in this surah. Why is

00:30:34--> 00:30:35

it called Surah Sabah?

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

Sabah,

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

again, this is one of the surahs that

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

are connected to historical event, and we said

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

the Quran time and time again pushes us

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

to read history

00:30:44--> 00:30:47

by naming surahs after historical events.

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

And sabah

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

refers to the kings of Yemen, that Allah

00:30:52--> 00:30:53

blessed with much. Gardens,

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

and fruits, and wealth, and financial standing, and

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

material well-being, and sovereign rule, and, and, and,

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

and, and then arrogance took over.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

And when arrogance took over, Allah flipped

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

their blessings, and the blessings became a curse.

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

And this is a message to the Quraysh,

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

that you have your power, people love Makkah,

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

they come into the Kaaba, they see you

00:31:15--> 00:31:17

as custodians of the Kaaba. You have an

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

automated marketplace because people want to come to

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

you anyway. You don't have to market. You

00:31:22--> 00:31:23

don't have to advertise.

00:31:24--> 00:31:27

The latest slippers from Yemen, the latest cloth

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

from Syria is going to come to your

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

market because they will come to the Kaaba

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

anyway do not take these blessings for granted.

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

Allah is sharing them a parallel

00:31:38--> 00:31:41

that they were better, stronger, richer people than

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

you, and we turned their circumstances because they

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

were arrogant and denied.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

Allah says

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

Allahu Akbar.

00:31:59--> 00:32:02

Allah says, there was for the tribe of

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

Saba in their dwelling place a sign, a

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

sign for all of us. They had 2

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

fields of gardens on the right and on

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

the left, and they were told to eat

00:32:10--> 00:32:12

from the provisions of your lord, but be

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

grateful to him.

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

A good land you have,

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

and a forgiving Lord you have.

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

That what you have, you have because you

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

have a lord that is forgiving. Allah says,

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

But they turned away,

00:32:28--> 00:32:29

refusing in arrogance,

00:32:30--> 00:32:32

so we sent upon them the flood from

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

the dam, and we replaced their 2 fields

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

of gardens with gardens of bitter fruit

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

and sparse loted trees.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says this was their

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

recompense for their own actions.

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

Okay.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

Then

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

if we look at Surah Saba and compare

00:32:52--> 00:32:54

it to the Surah before,

00:32:54--> 00:32:57

we see that Allah describes at the opening

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

of Surah Saba

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

his sovereignty and ownership.

00:33:01--> 00:33:03

Right at the opening of Surah Saba,

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

Allah teaches us of his sovereignty and ownership.

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

SubhanAllah, if you ponder at the end of

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

Surah Al Hazab,

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

Allah describes

00:33:13--> 00:33:15

what only a being

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

of his sovereignty and ownership can do.

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

Because at the end of Suratul Hazab Allah

00:33:21--> 00:33:21

says,

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

Allah says, Allah will punish

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

the idolaters, the male from them and the

00:33:32--> 00:33:33

females from them.

00:33:33--> 00:33:35

And the hypocrites, the males from them, and

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

the females from them. And Allah will forgive

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

the believers. Only the being of sovereignty can

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

do this.

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

So at the end of Surah Al Ahab,

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

Allah tells us what the Being of sovereignty

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

can do, and at the opening of Surah

00:33:48--> 00:33:51

Saba, Allah establishes himself as the Being of

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

sovereignty and mightiness. Subhanah.

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

So here we see this connection.

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

Also, at the end of a hizab, if

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

I can take it further,

00:33:59--> 00:34:02

Allah lists 2 names, Ghafoor and Rahim.

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

Did you guys hear this in the taraweeh?

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

Listen to the order. Ghafoor Rahim is eloquence

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

of the Quran.

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

At the end of Surah Al Ahzab, Allah

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

tells us

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

that He is Ghafoor and Rahim at the

00:34:25--> 00:34:27

end of Ahzab. At the opening of Saba,

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

Allah says, wahuar Rahim Al Ghafoor.

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

SubhanAllah.

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

Rahim comes first and Rahim comes second.

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

At the end of akhzab, Ghafoor first, Rahim

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

second. At the opening of Sabah, it switched.

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

Look at the connection between the Suras. Did

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

you know this here? Did you notice this?

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

SubhanAllah. But you read it all the time.

00:34:47--> 00:34:47

Amazing,

00:34:48--> 00:34:48

The Quran.

00:34:51--> 00:34:51

What else?

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

In Suratul Akhazab, Allah tells us how the

00:34:54--> 00:34:55

disbelievers

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

asked about qiyama in the form of making

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

fun of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:34:59--> 00:35:01

Sometimes we do this. We ask a question,

00:35:01--> 00:35:01

istihzaan.

00:35:02--> 00:35:04

You ask a question to make fun of

00:35:04--> 00:35:04

somebody.

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

You treat them as a fool, so you

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

come to a gathering and you ask the

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

question to make other people see them to

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

be a fool. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala in

00:35:12--> 00:35:15

Surah Al Hazab, he tells us about what

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

the disbelievers used to do.

00:35:17--> 00:35:19

In Surah Saba, Allah details their denial in

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

the hereafter.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

So you see this connection as well. SubhanAllah.

00:35:23--> 00:35:26

Surah complimenting a surah. A message complimenting a

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

message. In Surah Saba, we see a great

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

focus on the oneness of Allah, the Messenger

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

being God sent, and life after death, which

00:35:33--> 00:35:35

were key elements that the Quraysh used to

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

deny.

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

Then we get to Surah Fatir.

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

Surah Fatir is a Maqki Surah.

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

So Madani Maqki Maqki.

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

How many verses? 45.

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

And it's called Fartir because of the opening

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

of the surah. The first of Aya, Allah

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

subhanahu wa ta'ala praises himself with alhamd.

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

By the way, there's another surah that starts

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

with alhamd, and he says Fathir,

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

the originator

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

and creator of the heavens and the earth.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

Faapir doesn't just mean creator, it means the

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

originator.

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

Because a creator can be someone who creates

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

from something, but an originator is someone who

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

creates from nothing.

00:36:13--> 00:36:13

SubhanAllah.

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

So Fautir qualifies

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

the name of Allah Al Khaliq. That when

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

you understand Allah is the creator, you understand

00:36:20--> 00:36:22

it in the absolute term. That he's the

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

creator, but not the one who is a

00:36:24--> 00:36:27

dependent creator. He's an independent creator. He can

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

create from nothing.

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

And from the Sahaba were those who would

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

say, subhanallah, this word fatr, we didn't know

00:36:32--> 00:36:32

its meaning.

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

This how deep the Arabic language is, and

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

I believe it is Abdulai ibn Abbas, if

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

I'm not mistaken, said

00:36:39--> 00:36:41

we are we're struggling with

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

until one day I was in the desert,

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

and I saw 2 Bedouins fighting over a

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

well.

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

And one said,

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

and the other one said,

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

Right?

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

Meaning, one was saying, I'm the one who

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

brought the water out of this. And the

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

other one said, no. I'm the one. It's

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

my wall. He said, no. It's my wall.

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

He goes, I heard them using the term.

00:37:00--> 00:37:00

I said,

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

The one who brought something out of nothing.

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

It was sand before, and now there's a

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

water flowing. So he understood exactly what this

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

term means. This is the depth of the

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

Arabic language. Even sahaba will grow the understanding

00:37:10--> 00:37:12

of the Quran based on the interaction with

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

the different tribes.

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

And we're fortunate in this masjid because we

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

have a we have a a riwa, a

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

different a different mode of recitation

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

by Imam Suhaib, and then we have Hafsun

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

Aasim by the rest. And you can see,

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

subhanallah, different meanings coming out based on the

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

different words that are used in some places.

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

This is from the beauty of the Quran.

00:37:31--> 00:37:31

Okay.

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

Surah Faqir is also known as Surah Malaika.

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

Because in the opening, Allah tells us how

00:37:38--> 00:37:38

he decreed

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

for angels to be the middle process between

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

him and his messengers.

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

That was the decree of Allah. He is

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

the one who originated the angels from nothing

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

and made them this middle link between him

00:37:49--> 00:37:52

and his his his messengers. He doesn't need

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

them. He's not dependent on them. If he

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

was dependent on them, you wouldn't they would

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

have been there. But he created them

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

to show the Quraysh that this is not

00:38:00--> 00:38:02

a this is not a process of dependency.

00:38:03--> 00:38:05

This is a process by choosing. That is

00:38:05--> 00:38:07

how Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has chosen it

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

to be.

00:38:08--> 00:38:08

Taib.

00:38:09--> 00:38:11

The relationship to Surah Saba,

00:38:11--> 00:38:13

they both begin with Alhamd. I'm sure you

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

picked this up from today's reading.

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

And also they are similar in length. In

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

terms of the contents,

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

similar to the Maqk and Surahs,

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

it's big on

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

dismantling the foundations of idol worship.

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

It's big on presenting rational discussions on the

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

evidence of God and that he does exist

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

and that he's the only one worthy of

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

worship. So it's not only revealed

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

evidence but rational evidences. We see this. The

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

topic of steadfast is upon tawhid irrespective of

00:38:40--> 00:38:42

the trend is also revealed in the surah.

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

The Muslims are guided to this, and then

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

we moved into Surah Yaseen. InshaAllah, Surah Yaseen,

00:38:47--> 00:38:47

we will,

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

discuss tomorrow.

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

Oh, very quickly because, masha'Allah, did you read

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

extra, hamdulillah? You went to bed 4, he

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

he did read extra. Okay. Let me let

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

me share with you some of Surah Yassin,

00:39:00--> 00:39:00

inshallah.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

Surah Yaseen is a Makkan Surah

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

consisting of 83 verses,

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

and it's called the Yaseen because Allah begins

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

it with Yaseen. Earlier, I told taught you

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

all about the disjointed letters. That these are

00:39:12--> 00:39:14

letters from the Arabic language and something to

00:39:14--> 00:39:16

note, and it's in the book that's going

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

around. I have the discussion. Have you? We

00:39:17--> 00:39:19

don't hold the book. Pass it along. Masha'Allah.

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

The disjointed letters, if you see in the

00:39:23--> 00:39:26

Quran, whenever it's used immediately after that, Allah

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

talks about the Quran.

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

Allah speaks about the Quran.

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

We see the Quran being mentioned immediately after

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

these letters. And for those who missed it,

00:39:46--> 00:39:48

it's as if Allah is telling the Arabs

00:39:48--> 00:39:50

that look these are letters from your Arab,

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

from your alphabet.

00:39:52--> 00:39:54

These are letters from your alphabet

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

that we've used to review this Quran,

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

and there's a challenge to you to produce

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

1 ayah that can beat it.

00:40:03--> 00:40:03

What

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

are the contents of Surah Iyasin? Similar to

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

what we discussed earlier.

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

Similar to all what we see in Makkan

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

Surahs. Establishing to hid, the messenger being sent,

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

the fact that Allah exists,

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

rational evidence to his existence, and so on

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

and so forth. What's it con what's it's

00:40:21--> 00:40:24

connection to Surah Fathir? In Surah Fathir, the

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

attitude of Quraysh and the denial of the

00:40:25--> 00:40:26

Messenger

00:40:27--> 00:40:29

being sent as a winner was mentioned.

00:40:29--> 00:40:31

At the opening of Surah Yaseen,

00:40:32--> 00:40:35

Allah answers and says, Inna kalamin al Murusaleen.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

That by the testimony of God, you are

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

indeed God sent.

00:40:41--> 00:40:42

Subhanallah.

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

In Surah Fathir, there are details of how

00:40:45--> 00:40:45

the Quraysh

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

pursued their denial of the messenger being sent

00:40:49--> 00:40:49

by God.

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

Surah Yaseen comes down and immediately squashes it.

00:40:53--> 00:40:53

Allah

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

says Yaseen

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

wal Quran

00:40:56--> 00:40:57

al Hakim

00:40:58--> 00:40:58

inna kalaminal

00:40:59--> 00:41:00

murusaleen. Indeed,

00:41:00--> 00:41:02

by testimony of God you are sent by

00:41:02--> 00:41:02

God.

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

SubhanAllah.

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

So can you imagine you living at the

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

time of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

and this is going on. And then a

00:41:09--> 00:41:10

verse comes down like this.

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

Subhanallah.

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

Where would we be when these verses come

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

down? Allah knows best.

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

Before we leave, brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:41:23--> 00:41:25

I will continue with Surah Yassin tomorrow.

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

But very quickly,

00:41:27--> 00:41:29

just some key thoughts and key verses. Alhamdulillah,

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

we are in the night of Al Quran

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

in the 21st of Ramadan and school holidays,

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

so, no inshallah, doctors say no one has

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

to run run away. Right?

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Otherwise, they might say sheikh is going on

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

and on.

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

Bear with me. I'm jet lagged. I'm between

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

how many time zones at the moment.

00:41:43--> 00:41:46

As the imam was reading, firstly, subhanAllah, the

00:41:46--> 00:41:48

beginning, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala in the verses

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

from Surat Al Azzaab, he teaches us

00:41:51--> 00:41:51

that

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

if you are going to do dawah, you're

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

going to have opposition.

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

And if you are gonna do dawah,

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

you have to be ready to be patient

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

and be ready for the test. That is

00:42:03--> 00:42:04

just the nature of it.

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

Allah reveals that the believers, the true believers,

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

they have no haarij

00:42:10--> 00:42:10

in their hearts,

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

they have no

00:42:15--> 00:42:16

uneasiness

00:42:18--> 00:42:20

In that which Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

made compulsory upon them.

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

They are the ones,

00:42:26--> 00:42:28

They are the ones who convey the message

00:42:28--> 00:42:29

of Allah.

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

And they don't fear anyone except Allah.

00:42:34--> 00:42:36

This is the way of the true dua.

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

The way of the true believers. Yes, wisdom

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

is needed.

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

Nobody is saying

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

don't be wise.

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

But the issue of

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

what is the difference between you being wise

00:42:46--> 00:42:48

by not doing something

00:42:48--> 00:42:50

or you not doing it because really you

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

fear?

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

It's the haraj you feel in your heart.

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

It's as if at the beginning of Surah

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

Al Azzaab, Allah is teaching the parents,

00:42:57--> 00:42:59

cause we are all du'a'id, by the way.

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

A husband, you're a du'id to your wife.

00:43:02--> 00:43:04

Father, mother, you're a du'id to your children.

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

Children, you are a to your parents.

00:43:09--> 00:43:11

We all dua to each other. Many of

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

us forget about this. You know, parents struggle

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

with their children and they start giving up

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

and say, hey, you're a dahi.

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

The prophet, 23 years before Makkah became Muslim.

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

Don't give up. You have to carry on.

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

You're a dahi.

00:43:26--> 00:43:28

But are you making moves

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

because you really fear?

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

But through cognitive cognitive dissonance you

00:43:34--> 00:43:35

convincing yourself

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

that you're doing the right thing by using

00:43:37--> 00:43:38

the wisdom card?

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

Sometimes you tell someone, brother,

00:43:42--> 00:43:45

you close to that person, advise him, we

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

just have to create a link. You know,

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

we have to build the rapport. Have you

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

heard this? Build a rapport.

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

1 year later, brother, I'm still building the

00:43:53--> 00:43:53

rapport.

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

5 years later, oh, it's a wrong grind

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

to build rapport with this brother. I'm still

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

building the rapport.

00:44:00--> 00:44:02

Brother, how many lifetimes you're gonna have here,

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

Achi? How many lifetimes does he have?

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

Shouldn't our love and desire be to take

00:44:06--> 00:44:07

as many people to paradise?

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

If that is our desire, then get a

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

move on Yaqi. Maybe there's a problem in

00:44:12--> 00:44:14

how you're building the rapport.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

So is it really you have Haraj? Allah

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

says the believers,

00:44:20--> 00:44:21

they don't have any Harajima

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

They convey Allah's message.

00:44:28--> 00:44:29

They don't fear anyone but Allah.

00:44:30--> 00:44:32

Allah is enough for them.

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

This is the way of the Ummah.

00:44:34--> 00:44:36

This is the way of the 1st generation

00:44:36--> 00:44:36

of Islam.

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

This is their way.

00:44:41--> 00:44:42

As we read in during the 1st 10

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

nights of Ramadan,

00:44:43--> 00:44:44

that they are a people.

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

They don't fear

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

the complaint,

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

their,

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

refutation,

00:44:53--> 00:44:54

the complaint

00:44:56--> 00:44:56

of anyone.

00:44:58--> 00:45:01

They don't they're they're not bothered about it.

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

Sometimes you preach wisely,

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

and people take it the wrong way.

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

This is where you say, listen.

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

For you is your way, for me is

00:45:15--> 00:45:16

my way. But Allah send me

00:45:17--> 00:45:18

as Allah says in Suratul Agha Zab as

00:45:18--> 00:45:19

well.

00:45:28--> 00:45:30

I think you read it last night.

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

Allah says, oh Messenger,

00:45:35--> 00:45:36

indeed we send you.

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

As a witness.

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

As a giver of glad tidings.

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

And

00:45:44--> 00:45:46

a with the with the permission of Allah.

00:45:47--> 00:45:49

And we made you a lantern, a light.

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

And then Allah says, and give glad tidings

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

to the believer,

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

that they will have from Allah

00:45:56--> 00:45:57

a great father and benevolence.

00:45:59--> 00:46:00

Those who follow you.

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

And Allah says, walatuktu ilkafireena

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

walmunafiqeena

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

wadayaaadahum

00:46:06--> 00:46:07

wadayawakalar

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

Allah. Allah says, and do not follow the

00:46:09--> 00:46:10

way of the disbelievers

00:46:10--> 00:46:11

and the hypocrites.

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

Wataadhahum

00:46:12--> 00:46:15

and leave their harm. Don't let it consume

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

you. Don't pick it up. Don't make it

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

something that you think about often. Wataakkalalala.

00:46:20--> 00:46:22

Rather focus on your tawakkalala.

00:46:24--> 00:46:25

Build your tawakkalala.

00:46:25--> 00:46:27

So this is what we learned, from Surah

00:46:27--> 00:46:29

Al Ahab at the beginning. Also we learned,

00:46:29--> 00:46:31

brothers and sisters in Islam, and I can't

00:46:31--> 00:46:32

leave this because this is important to our

00:46:32--> 00:46:33

time.

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

The household of a believer.

00:46:37--> 00:46:40

Male and female gender interaction, and this is

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

a big thing because you have to know

00:46:41--> 00:46:43

I do this daily, almost.

00:46:44--> 00:46:47

As my role, as a trained Islamic judge

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

and adjudicator and arbitrator, this is this is

00:46:50--> 00:46:51

what we do.

00:46:52--> 00:46:53

And a lot of these issues boil down

00:46:53--> 00:46:55

to not looking after the laws of Islam

00:46:55--> 00:46:57

with regards to gender interaction

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

in our homes, in our families.

00:47:00--> 00:47:02

Whereby we put the culture

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

and we put the norm

00:47:03--> 00:47:06

and we put our whims and our fancies

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

before the Quran and the Sunnah. And the

00:47:08--> 00:47:10

day of Eid will come, subhanAllah. And the

00:47:10--> 00:47:12

khateeb will stand here and tell you after

00:47:12--> 00:47:13

a month of taqwa,

00:47:13--> 00:47:17

3 times, fear Allah, fear Allah, fear Allah.

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

Meaning fear Allah's punishment.

00:47:21--> 00:47:23

Don't let the Eid banquet after 30 days

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

of righteousness be a mixed affair with non

00:47:25--> 00:47:27

mahrams laughing and talking and joking with each

00:47:27--> 00:47:30

other whilst they dress beautifully for one husband

00:47:30--> 00:47:32

to look at another person's wife, to the

00:47:32--> 00:47:34

extent that you find some men calling other

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

people's wives by nicknames that their own husbands

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

call them. This is the level of easiness

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

that we have between us, and this is

00:47:39--> 00:47:40

not from Islam. Ma'anzalallahu

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

bihamin sultan. Allah didn't reveal this in any

00:47:44--> 00:47:45

way.

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

I'm saying it

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

because Ahab said,

00:47:53--> 00:47:54

athin. We have to I have to tell

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

you as it is,

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

even if you dislike me for saying it.

00:47:57--> 00:47:59

It's the fact, my dear brothers and sisters

00:47:59--> 00:47:59

in Islam.

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says, Oh

00:48:03--> 00:48:03

messenger,

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

kulli a zwajik, say to your wives, if

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

you should desire the world be life and

00:48:08--> 00:48:08

its adornment, then come I will provide for

00:48:08--> 00:48:08

you and give you a gracious release from

00:48:08--> 00:48:09

my household.

00:48:17--> 00:48:19

Allah reveals, if you want to sort out

00:48:19--> 00:48:21

your household, you both have to be on

00:48:21--> 00:48:23

the correct vision. The vision has to be

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

united. The vision of the messenger is one

00:48:25--> 00:48:27

of the hereafter. You have a vision for

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

the dunya? No problem. I will give you

00:48:28--> 00:48:30

the dunya by releasing you. Go after the

00:48:30--> 00:48:31

dunya. We're not compatible.

00:48:33--> 00:48:34

So we see this tanveem coming, and this

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

is to the to the messenger and about

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

our mothers, Subhanallah.

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

Because Allah is in control.

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

The messenger

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

but Allah is Allah.

00:48:46--> 00:48:48

Allah is revealing to his messenger.

00:48:48--> 00:48:50

So you see the system being revealed. This

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

is number 1. Number 2.

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

We will give her double the reward, and

00:49:07--> 00:49:09

we have prepared for her a noble provision,

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

meaning a noble jannah.

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

Subhanallah.

00:49:12--> 00:49:13

Number 3.

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

From addressing the prophet, Allah addresses the wives

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

of the prophet, our mothers.

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

You are not like anyone from amongst the

00:49:23--> 00:49:23

women.

00:49:26--> 00:49:28

If you truly fear Allah, then do not

00:49:28--> 00:49:31

be beautiful in your speech, soft and gentle

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

in your speech.

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

Why?

00:49:34--> 00:49:37

Because naturally men can be enticed to you.

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

Men have different levels of triggers when it

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

comes to their desire.

00:49:43--> 00:49:45

So be careful of this. Allah created you,

00:49:45--> 00:49:47

and Allah created them. He knows the female

00:49:47--> 00:49:48

better than she knows herself. He knows the

00:49:48--> 00:49:50

men better than he knows himself. Even if

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

they don't show it, you don't know what's

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

happening inside.

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

You don't know what's happening inside and what

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

that gives birth to. It's a little lint

00:49:59--> 00:50:02

that is lit and then a flint that

00:50:02--> 00:50:03

is lit and then shaitan blows it.

00:50:04--> 00:50:06

Over time, it becomes something.

00:50:06--> 00:50:09

Allah is telling look. Allah is telling the

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

mothers of the believers, do not be soft

00:50:11--> 00:50:14

and gentle, that sweetness be direct in your

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

speech.

00:50:15--> 00:50:17

Do not beautify your voice when you speak

00:50:17--> 00:50:20

to them, lest he in whose heart is

00:50:20--> 00:50:22

a disease should cover, should feel inclined to

00:50:22--> 00:50:23

you. Allah says speak appropriately.

00:50:24--> 00:50:26

Short, sweet, to the point.

00:50:26--> 00:50:29

Today what happens? Subhanallah. And we see this.

00:50:29--> 00:50:29

Like I said,

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

more cases than we like I know of.

00:50:33--> 00:50:34

Brother, sister working together,

00:50:35--> 00:50:38

at the beginning, they have rules.

00:50:38--> 00:50:39

There's modesty,

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

there's shyness,

00:50:41--> 00:50:43

but over time, the rules, the sensitivity meter

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

starts to drop. And then what was

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

becomes how are you?

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

And then after some time, Subhanallah,

00:50:51--> 00:50:54

you don't look okay. You're not well. Subhanallah.

00:50:54--> 00:50:56

Okay. Now it's about just health. Then maybe

00:50:56--> 00:50:59

she has some turbulence at home, and then

00:50:59--> 00:50:59

it's,

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

you look a bit stressed today, and then

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

she needs to speak to someone. She starts

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

speak what happens?

00:51:04--> 00:51:07

What happens? Do you think it's not natural

00:51:07--> 00:51:08

for feelings to develop?

00:51:10--> 00:51:11

Where, unfortunately,

00:51:12--> 00:51:14

I have had to come across cases

00:51:14--> 00:51:17

of sisters falling in love with the brother's

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

best friend or even a relative.

00:51:19--> 00:51:19

Falling

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

in love. We just had to admit it

00:51:23--> 00:51:25

that this is what happened. It looked, I

00:51:25--> 00:51:26

didn't intend it, it just happened.

00:51:27--> 00:51:28

That you were busy and he was there

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

for me.

00:51:30--> 00:51:33

This is reality brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:51:33--> 00:51:34

Inshallah, it's not a reality in your life,

00:51:34--> 00:51:36

but know know that these things happened and

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

these verses Allah has left to be recited

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

through the day of qayama for a reason.

00:51:40--> 00:51:41

It's not storytelling.

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

This is instructional.

00:51:47--> 00:51:49

Now like I said earlier, if this is

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

to the mothers of the believers,

00:51:50--> 00:51:52

then what about us?

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

What about the

00:51:54--> 00:51:56

the children of the mothers of the believers,

00:51:56--> 00:51:57

if I can use that term so that

00:51:57--> 00:51:59

we can create some sense in terms of

00:51:59--> 00:52:01

our proximity to them? If this is the

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

case with the wives of the messenger, what

00:52:03--> 00:52:06

about ourselves, our daughters, our mothers?

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

Then this whole idea of homeliness.

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

Know once I gave a lecture about the

00:52:12--> 00:52:14

5th Jews in the Quran, Allah said,

00:52:15--> 00:52:17

and I thought, Subhan Allah. And I learned

00:52:17--> 00:52:18

this from one of my close friends, and

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

also the teachers of Tafsir, wal Muhsinat.

00:52:21--> 00:52:23

Have you ever thought how Allah describes a

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

female as a castle? Muhsin is a castle.

00:52:27--> 00:52:30

Something preserved and protected. A female is preserved

00:52:30--> 00:52:31

and protected.

00:52:31--> 00:52:34

It's amazing because in Islamic law, she's protected

00:52:34--> 00:52:35

by her father,

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

or she's protected by her brother, or she's

00:52:37--> 00:52:40

protected by her husband, or she's protected by

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

her son, or she's protected

00:52:42--> 00:52:44

by the Islamic state, the bait ul mar.

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

She doesn't have to go out and fend

00:52:46--> 00:52:46

for herself.

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

Have you ever thought about this? Allah calls

00:52:49--> 00:52:51

a, she's a castle, a castle is something

00:52:51--> 00:52:54

protected and preserved, it has walls protecting it.

00:52:54--> 00:52:57

This is how Allah describes her. Allah says,

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

for the people of Iman,

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

the place of their,

00:53:04--> 00:53:05

the place of their solace,

00:53:06--> 00:53:08

the place where they feel most comfortable at

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

is their home.

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

Allah is telling the wives of the messengers,

00:53:14--> 00:53:15

and remain in your houses.

00:53:17--> 00:53:19

And then Allah reveals in Surah Al Ahab,

00:53:19--> 00:53:21

the Hijab. That if you have to leave

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

your house, your Hijab becomes your house. Take

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

your castle with you, put a fence around

00:53:26--> 00:53:28

you, and go out. That in your house

00:53:28--> 00:53:30

you can remove the hijab because you are

00:53:30--> 00:53:32

preserved by your home. But if you leave

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

the walls of your home, take a home

00:53:33--> 00:53:34

with you.

00:53:37--> 00:53:39

Subhanallah, that this is when you read these

00:53:39--> 00:53:41

verses, you can see this is what Allah

00:53:41--> 00:53:42

wants.

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

So the matter of choice and comfort, this

00:53:44--> 00:53:46

is what Allah wants.

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

That when you show Allah yourself doing this,

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

Allah loves you.

00:53:50--> 00:53:52

Allah praises you.

00:53:52--> 00:53:54

Imagine he tells his angels, look at Aisha

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

Bint Fulan. Look at Mariam Bint Fulan. Shaitan

00:53:58--> 00:53:59

made a promise that he was taking them

00:53:59--> 00:53:59

to Jahannam.

00:54:00--> 00:54:02

I bear witness, oh angels, that this Aisha

00:54:02--> 00:54:03

and this Mariam are for from the for

00:54:03--> 00:54:05

the people of paradise for the difficulty they

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

have wearing their niqab in a hot summer's

00:54:07--> 00:54:08

day in the UK,

00:54:08--> 00:54:10

meaning covering themselves with the hijab.

00:54:11--> 00:54:12

This is where the iman is.

00:54:13--> 00:54:15

We spoke about the people of Gaza. What

00:54:15--> 00:54:17

change are you do you wanna bring to

00:54:17--> 00:54:19

your life? Are you still going to tinker

00:54:20--> 00:54:23

with matters pertaining to your faith? Allah says

00:54:24--> 00:54:26

and do not display yourselves as was the

00:54:26--> 00:54:27

display of the former times of ignorance. So

00:54:27--> 00:54:30

women used to make up, literally paint themselves.

00:54:31--> 00:54:32

To the extent that in the books of

00:54:32--> 00:54:34

fiqh you find ideas if you go see

00:54:34--> 00:54:36

the girl how do you know her age

00:54:36--> 00:54:37

because the makeup was so much she could

00:54:37--> 00:54:39

look 10 years younger

00:54:40--> 00:54:41

They say look at her hands.

00:54:43--> 00:54:45

The fuqaha will share guidance in the books

00:54:45--> 00:54:46

of Iqh, they look at her hands, her

00:54:46--> 00:54:49

hands will give an idea of her age,

00:54:49--> 00:54:50

because that's how much makeup they did. And

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

even this whole idea of the niqab, by

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

the way, is it wajib? Is it not

00:54:54--> 00:54:56

wajib? Firstly, all the scholars agree it's better.

00:54:56--> 00:54:58

Shouldn't we do what is more beloved to

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

Allah? Allah? Even if it's not compulsory.

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

That's number 1. Number 2, they all agree

00:55:03--> 00:55:05

that if she has makeup on, she has

00:55:05--> 00:55:05

to cover.

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

The issue of Wajib not Wajib should she

00:55:08--> 00:55:10

cover, shouldn't she cover is when she doesn't

00:55:10--> 00:55:11

have makeup on her face.

00:55:12--> 00:55:14

Today the sisters go out with makeup and

00:55:14--> 00:55:16

tell you niqab is a difference of opinion.

00:55:17--> 00:55:19

This is a wrong reading of the fiqh

00:55:19--> 00:55:21

to my understanding. May Allah forgive me by

00:55:21--> 00:55:23

misrepresenting the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

But we can even deduce this from the

00:55:26--> 00:55:27

verses even if we don't look into the

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

books of the fuqaha. Allah says,

00:55:30--> 00:55:33

do not go out beautified, made up like

00:55:33--> 00:55:34

the women of Jahiliya.

00:55:36--> 00:55:39

Now Allah tells us, tells the females what

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

Allah wants from them.

00:55:42--> 00:55:43

Establish the salah,

00:55:45--> 00:55:46

and give the zakah.

00:55:48--> 00:55:49

And obey Allah.

00:55:50--> 00:55:51

And his Rasul.

00:55:53--> 00:55:56

Indeed, Allah only intends through these rules to

00:55:56--> 00:55:58

remove from you the impurity of sin. And

00:55:58--> 00:56:00

here he addresses the mothers of the believers,

00:56:01--> 00:56:03

oh, people of the prophetic household, and to

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

purify you with extensive purification.

00:56:07--> 00:56:09

I'm not gonna go too much on this,

00:56:09--> 00:56:11

but I wanted to leave this with you.

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

One last verse from Surah Al Hazab about

00:56:13--> 00:56:14

this.

00:56:23--> 00:56:26

Allah tells the people, the sahaba, that when

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

you are in the prophetic household and He

00:56:27--> 00:56:29

is hosting you, and you need something and

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

you need to ask one of the wives

00:56:30--> 00:56:31

of the Prophet

00:56:32--> 00:56:34

for it, make sure sure you ask them

00:56:34--> 00:56:36

whilst they are behind the covering, behind the

00:56:36--> 00:56:36

veil.

00:56:39--> 00:56:40

They should be covered,

00:56:41--> 00:56:42

And Allah says,

00:56:43--> 00:56:44

this is purer

00:56:46--> 00:56:48

for your hearts and their hearts, subhanallah.

00:56:49--> 00:56:51

That even our mothers of the believers, they

00:56:51--> 00:56:54

were human beings as well. And Allah forbid

00:56:54--> 00:56:56

anyone marrying the mothers of the believers after

00:56:57--> 00:56:58

the

00:56:59--> 00:57:01

prophet Anyway, it's 11 flat. We'll stop here

00:57:01--> 00:57:01

inshallah.

00:57:02--> 00:57:05

We did the of, Isha,

00:57:05--> 00:57:05

Maghrib,

00:57:06--> 00:57:08

and the adkar of Maghrib. We did the

00:57:08--> 00:57:10

of Isha. We did the of the the

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

the sunnah of Maghrib and Insha'Allah,

00:57:13--> 00:57:14

and then we did the Ibad of Taraweeh,

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

we've been with the Quran, and now we

00:57:16--> 00:57:17

sat in a tafsir session Allahu Akbar. What

00:57:17--> 00:57:19

a beautiful start to the 21st night.

00:57:21--> 00:57:22

Alright?

00:57:22--> 00:57:22

You've

00:57:23--> 00:57:25

had multiple relationships with the Quran through reading,

00:57:25--> 00:57:27

through hearing, and now through learning. Alhamdulillah.

00:57:28--> 00:57:30

Let us continue with that. InshaAllah. Protect your

00:57:30--> 00:57:31

tongues brothers and sisters in Islam. And everything

00:57:31--> 00:57:33

I shared with you here is not for

00:57:33--> 00:57:34

you to now talk about other people and

00:57:34--> 00:57:36

don't message your wife and say, you see

00:57:36--> 00:57:37

that sister. Don't even let your wife entertain

00:57:37--> 00:57:39

you. Leave this discussion after Ramadan.

00:57:40--> 00:57:41

Right now take the message

00:57:43--> 00:57:44

and don't believe for one moment the message

00:57:44--> 00:57:46

is for somebody else who should be here

00:57:46--> 00:57:47

because this is what happens sometimes.

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

And I said this to you before, sometimes

00:57:49--> 00:57:51

the lecture happens, you think, Yeah, salaam. I

00:57:51--> 00:57:53

wish that brother was here, oh Allah. I

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

wish that sister was here, oh Allah. La,

00:57:54--> 00:57:55

la, la. The message is for those who

00:57:55--> 00:57:56

are here.

00:57:57--> 00:57:58

Because we need reminders.

00:57:58--> 00:58:00

There's no guarantee

00:58:00--> 00:58:02

that we will be safe on our death

00:58:02--> 00:58:02

bed.

00:58:03--> 00:58:05

So we should keep trying, having good hope

00:58:05--> 00:58:06

in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:58:06--> 00:58:08

May Allah accept from us and make us

00:58:08--> 00:58:09

from the family of our Quran in this

00:58:09--> 00:58:10

life and the next, not only in reading,

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

not only in listening, but also in practice.

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

I mean, you're Rubba Al Amin. I love

00:58:13--> 00:58:15

you for the sake of Allah. Tomorrow inshallah

00:58:15--> 00:58:16

wa barakat.

00:58:15--> 00:58:16

wa barakat.
