Or you will have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying. Because this I was revealed when alcohol was not forbidden. This was one of the first I had revealed concerning that led to the prohibition of alcohol. So while you are in the state of intoxication, do not pray. Why? Because then you will say, what you do not know. And you might end up saying something that is incorrect, just as when a person is extremely sleepy, or he is under the effect of some medication. And so he's drowsy. So what happens, he thinks he's saying something, but in reality, he's saying something else. So do not pray in that state, or in a state of Geneva. So
only pray after you have taken a bath, except those passing through a place of prayer until you have washed your whole body. And if you are ill, or on a journey, are one of you comes from the place of relieving himself meaning using the bathroom, or you have contacted women and find no water. Then what should you do? Leave Salah? No, don't leave Salah. Then seek clean Earth and wipe over your faces and your hands with it? Meaning do they a mum? Indeed, Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving. Have you not seen those who are given a portion of the Scripture, purchasing error in exchange for it and wishing that you would lose the way And Allah is most knowing of your enemies? And sufficient
is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper among the Jews are those who distort words from their proper usages and say, we hear and disobey the same word Samaritan, Allah Athena, they change those words to Sameera. Now we're also you know, we hear and we obey and hear but be not be heard, and loreena, twisting their tongues and defaming their religion. You see, each of us has the choice of either saying things correctly, properly, or deliberately saying them wrong in order to make fun of it. Because sometimes we mispronounce words, we mispronounce names. Why? Just to make fun of the other person, just to make them feel bad. The names of Allah are distorted, the words of
the Quran are mispronounced. What's the fun over here? This is something ridiculous that a person is getting fun enjoyment how, by hurting the feelings of another person, or by making fun of the book of Allah by making fun of the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam what kind of entertainment in this, that a person has to draw something or do something or say something that will hurt the feelings of another. This is not fun. This can only come from people who are insensitive. This is not free speech. This is in sensitivity towards the feeling of other people. And this is something that has no room in our religion. And if they had said instead, we hear and
obey and wait for us to understand it would have been better for them and more suitable, but Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not except for a few.
All you who are given the Scripture, believe in what we have sent down, confirming that which is with you before we obliterate faces and turn them toward their backs or curse them as we curse the Sabbath breakers and ever is the decree of Allah accomplished. A severe warning is given that you better get your act together or else a severe punishment from Allah may fall upon you, such that your face will be turned towards your back meaning your physical body is disfigured. Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills and he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin. Have you not seen
those who claim themselves to be pure, rather Allah purifies whom He wills, but Allah who use a key Manisha. So never claim yourself to be pure. But how quickly we say Oh, my heart is very clean. My intentions are very pure. I have very good feelings for such and such person. I have no grudge in my heart. Really? Is that the case that our heart is completely pure and clean? That is not the case. Allah knows how clean we are and how dirty we are. The fact is that Allah purifies whomsoever He wills. So never make claims of purity. And this does not mean that we don't try to clean ourselves no we do. We clean our heart. We clean the feelings, we get rid of the bad feelings, but never claim
perfection. Never claim purification. And injustice is not done to them even as much as a thread inside a date seed. Allah is very fair. Look how they invent about Allah untruth and sufficient is that as a manifest sin, Have you not seen those who are given a portion of the Scripture who believe in superstition, what kind of superstition that are blackcap
By and so I should not go here. No, this is something that does not affect a believer. And they also believe in false objects of worship meaning for who, instead of rejecting thought they believe in thought, and they say about the believers. These are better guided than the believers as to the way una he can Latina Latina Houma LA. Such are the people whom Allah has cursed, and he whom Allah curses, finance at della hoonah sleep at all, never will you find for him a helper, a person who has been cursed by Allah, such a person can never be helped. There is no one who can help him. Who is it that has been cursed by Allah? Who is it that loses the help of Allah?
Where is it that we need a lot of help? Do we need Allah's help when it comes to family problems? When it comes to difficulties with our spouses? Yes, when it comes to dealing with our children, when it comes to financial constraints, do we need a lot of help? We need Ella's help all the time. We need his help when we're dealing with difficulties in our family, at our work with our health, with our children, in our country, whatever difficulties we're going through, remember, we need a lot of help. Why is it that allows help is not coming? Because perhaps perhaps we have done something that has brought about a loss curse and what is a loss curse when a person is removed away
from his mercy? When Allah's help does not reach him? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah has cursed those women who practice tattooing. And those women who have themselves tattooed. Those women who get their hair removed from their eyebrows, those women who have their eyebrows plucked, this does not mean that shaving is permissible or trimming the hair with scissors is permissible. The hair of the eyebrows. No. Because the bunnies, right? He also said that we're not fishing, but they were in reality fishing. So a woman who touches her eyebrows, how that she removes the hair through whatever means. What is she bringing about the curse? even miss Ruth said
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kirsty's women, the women who pluck their eyebrows, and also those who pluck the eyebrows of other women,
those who do this to other women. So a woman might say that no, no, I don't do it myself. I don't do it to my eyes. I just do it to other women who asked me, no, this is not a halaal income. This is a harem action. And a woman who does this to make money that money would be unlawful. And also those who make artificial spaces between their teeth for beauty, whereby they change Allah's creation. Now this is something that brings about the curse, learn and this is that the prophets, a lot of them are saying that Oh Allah keep these women away from your mercy. Imagine this is the profits of the LA Times draw against the women who do this? Is it worth it? Is that temporary? temporary, literally
temporary beauty of the eyes? Because what happens after two days, the hair comes back? It looks horrible than before? Isn't it at all? So what does a woman have to do? Keep doing it herself, even everyday, daily, every other day, every week, every other week? And what is she doing then with that action? Every time she does it? She is getting the draw of the profits and the losses against her the door all that Oh Allah keep this woman far away from your mercy, then yes, we will have marital problems, then yes, we will have financial problems, then yes, we will not find comfort in anything we do.
Because we're male and Allah who fell into g de la hoonah de la or do they have a share of Dominion? Then if that were so they would not give the people even as much as the speck on a date seed? Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of his bounty. But we had already given the family of Ibrahim the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom, and some among them believed in it and some among them were averse to it meaning from the money Islam and sufficient is hell as a blaze. Indeed, those who disbelieve in our versus those who reject our verses who do not give importance to them. Do not observe them do not believe in them, we will drive them into a fire.
Every time their skins are roasted through. We will replace them with other skins, so they may taste the punishment. Indeed Allah is Ever Exalted in Might and Wise.
It is reported from Abu sorry that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the inhabitants of the fire are those who are whom aloha who are most deserving of it. And verily they would neither die nor live in it. So Malaya moto V, ha
When I hear no amount of punishment even as severe as this will cause death, as what? That a person's entire skin is burnt out such that it cannot be burnt anymore. So it is replaced with more skin and then that is burnt. There is no death, even after this amount of burning, and there is no life. Why? Because what kind of life would this be that a person finds no comfort. Imagine the agony of death a person is between life and death in that state of extreme agony. But those who believe in do righteous deeds, we will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide forever. For them, they're in our purified spouses, and we will admit them to deepening shade, shade
that will only get deeper and cooler and more comfortable. Those who believe in Allah, and those who don't believe they can ever be the same. Those who obey Allah and those who don't. How can they be the same? Those who love Allah and those who don't? How can they be the same? Those who give priority to Allah when Medina amanu eyeshadow, Belinda, how can they be equal to those who don't love a lot the most in the La Jolla, Morocco and to adult amenity Allah Allah. Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are do. What does it mean? That if someone has given us something of theirs as a tourist, then what should we do? We should return it to them. Not that if
somebody said can you keep my phone for some time? And when they return? You say, No, no, now it's my No, Allah has ordered that when something belongs to the other, they have given it to you to look after for some time, then what is your obligation you return it. Amana also means responsibility. So responsibility must only be given to who those who can handle it, not those who cannot do justice to it. And he has also ordered that when you judge between people, you judge with fairness. Excellent is that which Allah instructs you? Indeed, Allah is Ever hearing and seeing. So what do we see here? Whether as judge if a person is in the position of making a judgment, or he's just resolving
disputes in the family, or even in our heart, when we're trying to judge other people, how should we be fair, and just the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Behold, those people who are just will be seated on the puppets of light near Allah, near Allah. Were on both sides of light. Were on the right side of man. On the right side of Iraq, man,
who are these people who are just those who are just in their rulings, meaning whenever they make a judgement, and in matters relating to their families also, they are just, yeah, you have ladina amanu. After your law, how about a theory of law school? What will remain calm, all you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger, and those in authority among you? meaning those who have been appointed as leaders, whether in the family, in an organization, whoever is responsible, whoever has been made the leader, what does Allah say, obey them? Don't disobey them? So for example, the husband who is he, the one the in charge, so if we obey the husband, this is an
obedience to who? Who are we really obeying? Allah subhanho wa Taala. If there's a course in charge, a class in charge, any person who's appointed as a leader over us when we're obeying them, then who are we in fact obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you disagree over something, meaning they tell you to do something, and you don't agree with them, you say, no, this is not right. This is not correct. Then what should you do? refer to Allah and the messenger? See what the Quran says about that matter? See what the Sunnah says about that matter? Why? Because the final authority rests with who? Allah and His Messenger because many times it happens that in a family for example, the husband
will tell the wife to do something, and she says, No, I'm not going to do it. So now what should happen argument? No. Okay. See, what does the Sharia say? If the Quran says that yes, this is something that should be done. If the Sunnah says that this is something that should be done, then no questions asked. Then the wife has to do with her husband has to do it. And if the sooner the Quran says something otherwise, then should we say that? No, no, my husband tells me this is why I do it. My husband doesn't allow me This is why I don't do it. No. Then Allah command the messengers command has to be given preference over the command of the creation. If you should believe in Allah
and the Last Day, that is the best way and the best in result. This is
Something that will lead you to the best and best outcome. Because sometimes we compromise on the commands of Allah. Why? Because we're too afraid to disturb our relationships. But remember, one day, you're compromising on your prayer, you leave your prayer because your husband says it's okay. Just sit and watch this movie with me. Then what happens? You leave your prayer for him. What's the next step? Something else, something else you will leave that is fall for him, then what's the next step? Something else? Something else, you're cooperating with him? insane. We are supposed to be helping each other in obeying a law. But when the husband says For example, do this, which is how
Then what is it that the wife should say remind him of Allah, that I love you Habibi, but I cannot do this. Right? Showing your love, show your respect, but at the same time, remind him of Allah, that I love you. And this is why I cannot disobey Allah, I want the best for you, and I want the best for myself. All that husbands want is respect. And if you show him respect, while you are obedient to Allah, He will support you in that. And many times it happens that a husband will tell his wife to do something wrong. Why? Because he's trying to exert his authority. I am the boss and accept me already. So when I tell you to do this, you better do it, even if it goes against the
Quran and Sunnah. Why? Because all that the guy wants is what? accept me as the boss. So accept him as the boss already.
If you should believe in a line the last day that is the best way and the best end result. Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, and what was revealed before you the truth? They wish to refer legislation to thought while they were commanded to reject it, and shaytaan wishes to lead them far away. And when it is said to them, come to what Allah has revealed unto the messenger, you see the hypocrites turning away from you in a version, true believers, when they hear the command of Allah and the messenger. What is their response, love bake. But those who don't truly believe in a line the messenger then what do they do? When the commander of allies
mentioned, they rush away? they avoided they don't want to listen? How long will they avoid it? So how will it be when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth? And then they come to you swearing By Allah, we intended nothing but good conduct and accommodation. Those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts, so turn away from them, but admonish them and speak to them a far reaching word. Another important principle is being taught over here, that when a person does something wrong, then advise them tell them words that will affect them. We'll call loan fee unforeseen Toulon Balibo admonish them, generally, what do we do? It's their choice. I'm
sorry, I can't say anything. No, it's our duty as a Muslim brother, Muslim sister, that what do we do? We remind one another, we advise each other and say to them that which will reach their heart, not that we say that we started giving fourth hour of gopher as if we are the greatest movie of the time, that oh, this person has this belief, this person has committed ship this person has done this, this person has done that. Now, instead of turning people away, what is it that we should be doing? advising them and we did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah? Why was the messenger sent to be obeyed? And if when they wronged themselves because mistakes
happen, if they wronged themselves they had come to you and asked forgiveness of Allah and the messenger, and the messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and merciful. Instead of becoming stubborn on their own, what should they do? What should we do? When we realize that this action of ours contradicts the command of a law contradicts the command of the messenger? What should we do? Go to SFR go repet because when we repent, we will find a love Forgiving and Merciful, but no by your Lord, they will not truly believe until they make you judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves, and then find within themselves
no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in full willing submission.
We see that when there are differences and we try to refer to the Quran and Sunnah. Then what is it that we take from the Quran something that we like, and if there is something that we don't like, then what do we do we leave it What does Allah say? Eman is only complete when a person accepts everything that Allah has revealed. And not just accept, but also look at these words
that through Malaya doofy, unfussy him how Raja mimma kabita when you sell limitus Lima that they find in their hearts no discomfort, about what about what you have judged and they submit in full, willing submission, meaning they're also happy with
The command of Allah rabito Villa Europa, Cobell Islam Idina Wahby Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and obeah it's not just about doing it, it's about doing it happily. It's about accepting it. Because unless and until we accept in our hearts that yes, this is also part of the deen. This is also an action that will bring me closer to Allah, that will bring me a lot of pleasure until we accept in our hearts, we cannot be happy with it. And if we cannot be happy with it, can we act upon it? No, we cannot act upon it, then what will happen, we will do it for some time, and then we will leave it, then again, we will do it and then we will leave it. And if we had decreed upon them, kill
yourselves or leave your homes, they would not have done it except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, then it would have been better for them and a firmer position. Meaning the commands that Allah has given, they're not impossible, Allah is not telling us that we should kill ourselves. Is he? Is he telling us that we should kill ourselves? know, whatever Allah has told us to do? Is that doable? Is that practical? It is. And even if something seems to us, as impractical, or very difficult, we feel like we're going to suffocate, then still, what do we learn? Do it Why? Because it will be better for us. You know, for example, the month of Ramadan, fasting is
coming. Many people find how to open their hearts and discomfort. The thought of Ramadan makes them scared and worried. How will I fast? How will I fast? Even if we find it difficult? We should still fast. Why? If we are of those people on whom fasting is obligatory, then we should fast. Why? Because when we will do it, that will be better for us. And if we leave it without any genuine reason, then that will be worse for us. And then what happens first few days, you feel like you're going to die. But then what happens the end of the week? It's normal. What happens on the day, there's food in front of you. But do you feel like eating? No. All day you cannot eat all day you're
offered food but you cannot eat? Why? Because you're so used to staying hungry. Right? So initially, it is difficult. You feel like you're going to die. It's going to kill you. You're going to suffocate. How can I go out and dysphagia everybody's gonna stare at me. How can I pray? Everybody's gonna stare at me? How can I leave this? How can I stop shipping my eyebrows? Everybody's gonna notice it. It's so difficult. Do it anyway. Obey Allah anyway. Why? Because that would be better, it will get easier. And then we would have given them from us a great reward. Why Lima? Because the effort is so great. The struggle is so great. You see, for one person who has never shaved their
eyebrows for them. They don't know what it means to leave shaping their eyebrows. Why? Because I've never done it. But for a person who's been doing it for so long for them to leave it. What is it? First of all, they have to tell themselves make themselves agree I have to stop. That in itself is such a huge struggle. Because you have to kill your own ego. And then what happens? People start looking at you and the people who are close to you, they start commenting, they start asking you and they start showing you fatawa right, yours is an exceptional situation. Just say your husband wants you to do it, and you'll be fine. No, people will say it. So you see there is a constant struggle,
constant struggle. But what does Allah say? What even Taner home Mila Donna Adriana Lima, make a note of this. Anytime you find obedience to Allah difficult. Any action difficult? How am I going to do this? This is so hard for me. Remind yourself what even Taylor home Mila Donna, Donna alima Wanda Dana home, Sarah Thomas akima. And we would have guided them to a straight path. Because when a person takes one step in obedience to Allah, then what happens? Allah guides him to the next step also to the next step also, you like when a child learns to swim than what happens. The first few laps are difficult, but then when he gets the hang of it, then what happens he's swimming back and
forth, back and forth so easily. When a child starts walking, what happens he stands up, he falls, he stands up, he falls. And finally when he takes one step, then what happens? Quickly, quickly, he takes one step after the other after the other and then he falls, right. But we see that one step leads to the other, just like that one good deed. When a person makes up his mind, I'm going to do this. I'm going to make myself do it and you do it, then what will happen that good deed will lead to another which will lead to another and the exact opposite happens with since that when a person commits why
Sing deliberately, then remember, it's not going to stay one sin, it is not going to stay one sin what is going to happen it's going to lead to another another another. So for example, if it's time for us to Salah, and we deliberately delayed, delayed delayed deliberately not that we were caught up with something where we delayed like the last five minutes last 10 minutes, then what will happen the same thing will happen with fudge. And the same thing will happen with mercury and the same thing will happen with other prayers. Because one sin never remains one sin it leads to more when they nuclear Allah however soon, you find obeying a law difficult. whoever obeys Allah and the
messenger. Those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor. Those who obey Allah and the messenger they will be with who those allies happy with. Who are they mean, an OBE was a deity for Shahada was sali hain the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs, the righteous, were Hess una una ecography, kar, and excellent are those as companions. Look at this a person when he obeys Allah and the messenger, then he becomes the friend of who he will be amongst to the profits, can you imagine?
If we ever have the phone number of a very important person, who we feel happy about that, if we know where they live? If we know what kind of coffee they drink? Do we feel happy about that? If we know a little bit about their family, if we've met their cousin, if we've met their distant aunt, then what happens? What happens we feel so happy about it right? Because we feel closer to them. Because there are people are a high status, the people who really have a high status or who profits NetBeans for decades you had a solid team. Imagine when a person obeys Allah and the messenger, he will be in their company, their legal phenomenon law, that is the bounty from Allah, and sufficient
is Allah as the nor all you have believed, take your precaution, and either go forth in companies or go forth altogether. And indeed there is among you, He who lingers behind. And if disaster strikes you He says, Allah has favored me in that I was not present with them. But if bounty comes to you from Allah, He will surely say as if there had never been between you and him any affection, or I wish I had been with them. So I could have attained a great attainment, meaning when you suffer, he's happy. And when you gain something, then he has regrets. So let those fight in the cost of Allah, who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. And he who fights in the cost of Allah and
is skilled or achieves victory, we will bestow upon him a great reward. And what is the matter with you, that you find not in the cause of Allah, and for the oppressed among men, women and 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 a helper alladhina amanu your party, Luna feasterville Allah, those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of tahu.
A believer his struggles, his efforts, what are they for, to strengthen the cause of Allah, and the person who disbelieves his efforts, his struggles, ultimately, they strengthen the cause of shape and they strengthen the forces of evil. So see, my way of dressing, my way of eating my lifestyle? What cause is it strengthening the cause of Shelton or the cause of Allah? So fight against the allies of Chevron? Indeed, the plot of Chevron has ever been weak, so be firm and do your best? The question is, how weak is a plot of shape on because when we see what's strong of a whole trip on has on people we become worried. Allah says that the case of Chevron Canada if it is every week, how
weak is it? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, cover your vessels, tie your water skins, extinguish your lamps and lock your doors when in the nighttime. For shavon does not untie a water skin, open a door or uncover a vessel which one on which the name of Allah has been mentioned? This is how weak the plot of shaitaan is that you say Bismillah when doing something, and Chopin cannot disturb it. shaitaan cannot touch it. He cannot destroy it. So say Bismillah before doing anything important, why? To protect yourself from Chevron?
