Juz’ 5: An-Nisa’ 24-147
Have you not seen those who were told, restrain your hands from fighting and established prayer and gives a crown? Why focus on self development, self improvement. But then when fighting was ordained for them at once a party of them feared men as they fear alone, or with even greater fear. They said, Our Lord, why have you decreed upon us fighting? If only you had postponed it for us for a short time? Because see things that we find difficult, then we're never ready for them. Say the enjoyment of this world is little, how long would you wait because we keep waiting. When I'm done school, then I will do this. When I get married, then I will do this when I have children, then I
will do this. Now. I'm pregnant after the delivery, then I will do this now when my child is two years old, and I will do it then before that the next child is on the way. And now there's too many children now I can't do anything. So what do we learn what comes your way? And whatever time take it and do it. Don't delay your prayers. Don't delay your recitation of the Quran until your children are over. No, do it now. Do it now. You know, recently, I met a Koran teacher who said that when a woman has a little baby, that's the best time of memorizing. And I was thinking that is the time when we usually think take time off. Because you're too busy. Your hands are full with your baby.
You know, this Quran translation that we're using here. This has actually been translated by who a woman. So he international translation has been done by a woman.
And when my mother met her, she said that I do most of my work when I'm nursing my children. She's not a woman who lives without a husband, you know, alone who's got servants to do everything for her. Now she's a woman who's got little children all ages. And she said, I have done this work while nursing my children because that was the best time. So it's about making most of the time and the opportunity that Allah has given us, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his life was so busy 10 years of Medina era what do we see if you try to study Medina, an era you'll never stop? Because there's so much to learn so much to reflect on so much to benefit from his life was so busy, but look at his
family, look at his Sahaba look at how he received the Quran and talk to people and traveled and did Hajj and Umrah and fought battles, so much he did. Because the enjoyment of this world is little, it is little. So don't put off important things for the temporary enjoyment of this life. And the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah and injustice will not be done to you. Don't feel like you will miss out on something. No, Allah will not be unfair to you, you will sacrifice a little bit of your time in the way of Allah Allah will give you even more in return. injustice will not be done to you even as much as a thread inside a date seed a thread inside a date seed Yes, a date seed has
a thread in it a.on the side of it. And these are the things that are love mentioned when he says that he is not unjust to people. So next time you eat a date, open it up and examine examine the cover which is on the date seat imagine the fine thread which is right next to the date seat and look at examine the dot the ridge which is on the datasheet the dot which is on the edge on the side. OLED does not do injustice even that much wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lufti construction because the angel of that will reach you there also he knows where you hide. Why are you afraid to go in unless way but if God comes to them, they
say this is from Allah, and if evil to follow them, they say this is from you. They blame the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for their loss. They blame the Muslims for their loss. They blame the Quran for their loss, their Salah, their ibadah Ramadan, say all good things are from Allah. So what is the matter with those people that they can hardly understand any statement? All things whether good or bad? Who are they from? From Allah? What comes to you have good is from Allah. But what comes to you of evil is because of yourself, meaning it happened by the will of Allah He allowed it. That's why it happened. But what was the cause of that bad? It was you. So whenever in life there is
difficulty. See, What mistake did I make? What sin did I commit? When where what ask Allah and Allah will show you and once you realize then beg him for forgiveness, begging for forgiveness, and don't go from one scene to the next. And we have sent you or profit to the people as a messenger and sufficient is Allah as witness. He who obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah. He who obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah my youth masuleh focus upon a law. So how can a person say that? No, I don't believe in Hades. I only believe in the Quran. No, the people who pass the Quran on to us are the same.
who passed on the teachings of the messenger to us also, but those who turn away, we have not sent you over them as a guardian, and they say we pledge obedience, but when they leave you, a group of them spend the night determining to do other than what you say, meaning they disobey the clear orders of the Prophet. But Allah records what they plan by night, meaning even when alone a person disobeys Allah, then who is watching who is recording, everything is being written. So leave them alone and rely upon Allah and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. For later the brutal Koran. The new did not reflect upon the Quran. They should, why don't they they should reflect more
and more and more endlessly. Why? Because the person can never have enough of reflecting on the Quran. Because each time you reflect on the Quran, what does he see? What does she observe? What does she notice her own mistakes areas where she needs improvement? If it had been from any other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction. And when there comes to them information about public security or fear, they spread it around meaning some people, what do they like to do spread troubling news. That's what they like to do on WhatsApp on Facebook everywhere, to spread fear, fear fear, so that people just get overly concerned about the particular bug that has
come in Africa now. And that will affect us, or you know, some kind of person who's doing a strange thing somewhere in the world, completely different place in the world. How is that even affected to us? How is that even related to us? It's not related to us. But what happens people like to talk about these things. Why? Just to create some excitement. When there comes to them information about public security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the messenger, or to those of authority among them, then the ones who can draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it many times it happens that such emails such messages are forwarded, they're
shared. And then later on, somebody says this is not true information. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy, you would have followed up on except for a few. The thing is that shaitan likes for us to be lost in unimportant unnecessary things. Because when our time goes in unnecessary things, then we don't have time to remember Allah. Think about it. If the whole time when our phone we're just copying, pasting, forwarding messages, emails, which are completely unrelated to our lives, and we are filling the emails of other people. And then later on, we find out that that news was not true. That piece of information was not correct. It's not based on any
research, what have we done, we have wasted 15 minutes of hours, 15 minutes of somebody else and 15 minutes of 30 people who read that how many human hours is that? Think about it. How many human hours is that?
We are depriving ourselves from hate, when we indulge in these useless things. So find profit in the cause of Allah, you are not held responsible except for yourself and encourage the believers to join you will have a limit meaning that perhaps Allah will restrain the military might have those who disbelieved and Allah is greater in mind and stronger in exemplary punishment, manesh, Varsha Earth and hessonite and you're gonna say, woman, ha, whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward there from meaning even if he did not do it himself, but he just requested for somebody, he made a good request. And then that person was able to do something good, then what will happen he
will also get some reward, and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden there from And ever is a law over all things a keeper will either hurry to be the hating for how you beat cinnamon ha, I will do her. And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with one better than it or at least return it when somebody says Salaam to you then respond to that Salaam how, in the like manner, but what would be better, that you make the response even better, but their minimum is what that at least respond to the greeting. Indeed, Allah is Ever over all things and accountant and he's also keeping count of who says Salah who initiates it, who responds to it and
who does not respond to it and how does he respond to it? In a hadith we learned that a Salah
As salam is a name from the names of Allah, which Allah has placed in the earth. Therefore will people spread it amongst yourselves How should we spread the name of Allah Salaam amongst ourselves, oh, by saying a Salam or Aleikum, meaning May the piece of salami on you, when a person says the Salaam to our people and they respond to him, then he has a rank above them, for he reminded them of it. So one is the person who initiates us and he says as Sarah more eleiko and now the others respond to him. Now of the two whose level is higher, the one who initiated the greeting Why? Because he
He said Salah, because of which the others have to say Salah, he reminded them and if they did not respond to him, then those better and pure than then respond to the greeting of a Salah. Because sometimes it happens that we say Salaam, but nobody responds to the greeting. Then we say, You know what? I'm not saying Salaam to these people no say it anyway. Why? Because of the people did not respond to you someone pure and better responded to us. But will mama report you that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah is responsible for three that if they live, they will have enough and if they die, they will enter the garden. Allah Almighty is responsible for whoever enters his
house, saying peace meaning of these three people is who the one who enters his house saying Salah in other Hadees we learned that the most stingy person is the one who is stingy in Salah. stingy with respect to what saying the Sunnah, either in saying it first or in responding to it. Because this could be in both ways that we enter the house. And we're so stingy that we don't even say Salaam to the people who are in the house. Or somebody enters the house. They say salam and we're so stingy. We're busy in our computer, in our kitchen cooking, that we don't even say we're in a call center. This is stringiness Allahu La Ilaha Illa. Who Allah there is no data except Him, He will
surely assemble you for account on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt the day of judgment will certainly come and who is more truthful than Allah in statement, then what is the matter with you that you are two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back into error and disbelief for what they have earned? Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent a stray? And he whom Allah sends a stray? Never will you find for him a wave of guidance? They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved. So you would be alike, you would become the same who wants this, they will not want this, those who don't take the religion Seriously, what do they want
that you should also not take the religion seriously so that you become like them, they have strength. So this is why many times it happens that a person does something wrong. And then he encourages other people to do the same. Or he leaves a good thing and then he encourages other people to leave that good thing as well. This is a sign of what of NIF Ark because a believer loves Islam loves pull on all of it. And he does good himself, and he encourages other people to do good as well. If we are stopping people from doing good than what does that show our insincerity towards the cause of Allah. We are supposed to be omoton wassup Remember, a connection, the one in the
middle, a link between mankind and Allah, we are supposed to encourage each other to worship Allah not discourage one another from obeying Allah. So do not take from among them allies, meeting these people who discourage you from obeying Allah. Do not befriend them, until they immigrate for the cause of a law meeting until they do something that really shows that they are sincere with their religion. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from them any ally or helper meaning that they're at war with you. So if they come fighting you, then you have to fight them back. Except for those who take refuge of the people between yourselves
and whom is a treaty, or those who come to you, their hearts trained at the prospect of fighting you or fighting their own people. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they remove themselves from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause for fighting against them. You will find others also another category of hypocrites who wish to obtain security from you. And to obtain security from their people. They want to stay in the middle, every time they return to the influence of disbelief, they will fall back into it. So if they do not withdraw from you, or offer you peace or restrain
their hands, then seize them and kill them. Wherever you overtake the meaning then they're your enemy, so treat them as an enemy. And those we have made for you against them a clear authorization. Basically the messages that someone who says that they're your friend, but they don't treat you like a friend, then don't be deceived by them. And never is it for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake. Meaning a believer can never kill another believer. It's not allowed for him. The only situation where this can happen is when it happens by accident a mistake. And whoever kills a believer by mistake, then the freeing of a believing slave and a compensation payment via blood
money should be presented to the diseased family. This is required unless they give up their right as charity. But if the disease was from a people at war with you, and he was a believer than only the freeing of a believing slave, and if he was from a people with whom you have a treaty than a compensation payment presented
His family and the freeing of a believing slave and whoever does not find a slave or cannot afford to buy one then instead fast for two months consecutively seeking acceptance of repentance from Allah, and Allah is Ever knowing and wise. We see over here, there are serious consequences of killing another Muslim woman, Yamato Minamoto Ramadan, but whoever kills a believer intentionally, deliberately, knowingly, consciously, then his recompenses hell were in he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him, and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment. So never ever think about this evil. Never, ever consider this even as an option, killing another
person, especially a believer, an innocent human being. This is something that does not affect a believer. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by the one in whose hand is my soul, killing a believer is more grievous before Allah than the extinction of the whole world. extinction of the whole world imagine the world if life would be wiped off from the earth, that would not be as bad as a believer being killed. Have you ever seen those video clips in which they show a building collapsing, or because of an earthquake, the Earth is shaking, and buildings are collapsing, and people are dying? everywhere. Fire is spreading destruction upon destruction. You see that image of
destruction Imagine if the whole world was overcome by that, and not a single soul was left alive. That would not be as bad as an innocent believer being killed. This is something very serious. The prophets have a lot of times that he who takes the life of another unjustly then that blood will come between him and the gate of Jenna. So he won't be able to enter gender. Meaning each time that person will try to enter gender, what will prevent him the blood that he shed the innocent blood that he shot, it will come between him. And Jen, this is an authentic hadith says.
Yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu Oh, you have believed when you go forth to fight in the cause of Allah, investigate, and do not say to the one who gives you a greeting of peace, that you are not a believer if someone says he's a believer accept him as a believer. So don't say that you are not a believer aspiring for the goods of worldly life. For with Allah are many acquisitions. You yourselves were like that before. So deal with them patiently. Imagine if someone didn't give you a chance. Because sometimes when we come across a person who's not that knowledgeable about the deen and they say things or they argue with us, and we become impatient with them, we become impatient
with them. So what does Allah say? Remember, you were also like them one day, when you didn't know. You know, for example, someone is trying to read Quran, and we're listening to our child read Quran, and we yell at them. Why do you keep making this mistake again? And again? How many times do I have to correct you? Focus, pay attention, we become so harsh and rude. Remember, we were also in their place once upon a time when we didn't know how to read.
Sometimes we're telling somebody to do something good, like praise Allah and they're not listening. And we argue argue and we get fed up, we get so angry. What does Allah say? Remember, one day you were in that position when you didn't care about the Sunnah. So give them a chance, then Allah conferred his favor upon you. So investigate, Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do acquainted. So a very important principle has been taught over here that we should be patient with other people, not hasty. Even those people who are doing something wrong, not equal are those believers remaining at home? To who, to those people who go out in the way of Allah. One believer stays at home, he
doesn't go out. And there is another believer who left his bed left his home spent on his gas spent his time when somewhere to do something good, is equal to the first one, no way, Lester will carry the money, not equal are those believers remaining at home, other than the disabled, meaning if a person has a genuine reason, that prevents him from going in the way of a law, then it's understandable. However, a person who has held he has time he has money, he has the ability, all he has to do is just control his desire, organize her life, then she should not stay back. So these believers are not the same as who as the Mujahideen, those who strive and struggle in the way of
Allah, how with their wealth and their lives, who is better, Allah has preferred the Mujahideen, those who strive The one who goes out of the way of Allah spends as well spends his life his time his energy, his strength, then his status is greater than the one who stays behind by how much by degrees. by degrees. There is a difference of
Many levels. And to both Allah has promised the best reward meaning both believers are good, the one who stays at home and the one who goes out both are good. However, Allah has preferred the Mujahideen over those who remain behind with a greater reward, meaning those who struggle, their reward will be greater, how much greater according to the level of their struggle, this doesn't mean that we put ourselves into unnecessary hardship in the way of Allah No. But sometimes even to do a little bit extra, a lot of hardship a person has to go through. So for example, for you to come here this morning, perhaps you left your kitchen messy, perhaps because of the fact that you're coming
here every day. And you have committed to come here every day, until 20th of Ramadan, every day, every day without a Saturday and Sunday in the middle of that, what does that mean? That inevitably laundry will get out of control, or perhaps your own sleep, you will have to cut down on it, you might not be able to just relax at home, you might not be able to you're cutting down on something, something has to give, right? Because 24 hours don't turn into 30 hours, do they? No, they don't turn into 30 hours, each person has been given a limited amount of time. So when you take out a portion of your time, and you give it in the way of Allah, then depending on how much you are
sacrificing, that is exactly how much extra reward you will be making. If you're cutting down on your sleep, that's when the Raja if you're spending money, that's when the Raja if you're cutting down on something else also that is again one darada. So these levels, these extra rewards, they're determined by what? extra effort, so it's up to us how much we do. So whenever we do, let's do it with the riddle of the comp. Don't do it with resentment. Don't come angry and go angry and then yell at your children and be upset with your husband. No, do it with Riddler. Do it with somebody that I'm doing this for you. The Rajasthan minha mafia rotten wah wah cannon la hora rahima degrees
of high position from him and forgiveness and mercy and Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful. Indeed, those whom the angels taken death, while wronging themselves the angels will say in what condition were you they will say we were oppressed in the land, the angels will say was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to immigrate there in for those that are refugees, hell and evil it is as a destination except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan nor are the director to a way for oolagah Salah who are foreign home for those It is expected that Allah will pardon them. And Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving and whoever immigrates for
the cause of Allah will find on the earth, many alternative many alternative locations and abundance, any person who does hedgerow, who leaves something for the sake of Allah, because Allah mohajir mohajir now is who the one who leaves what Allah has forbidden. So now we have learned about many things that Allah has forbidden. Anytime a person has to give up something that Allah has forbidden, what does Allah say? What will he find? a better alternative, something else that will bring him more happiness, more pleasure? So if ever we find ourselves in that difficulty, should I leave this for Allah? Should I do this for Allah? Then what should we do? compromising our desires,
compromising our comfort and prefer the command of Allah? Why? Because Allah promises Malala and Catherine wasa many alternative locations and abundance. This is for whom the muhajir
and whoever leaves his home as an immigrant to Allah and His Messenger, and then death overtakes him, meaning he left his home to make the hedgehog but then what happened, he never made it to the home of the hedgehog, before he could reach the end of his journey. What happened? He died, he was never able to complete it. Allah says his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. His reward is written. Why? Because he started the journey. He started the journey, then something genuine came in the middle, preventing him from completing the journey is his reward wasted. Not at all. It's as though he completed the deed. You know about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, many earlier they say
that he performed for homeless. Whereas if we look at it, he actually performed three formulas. Why is it that they say formulas because they say he went for a fourth one, but he couldn't do it. He was prevented that one. So here they be a happened. But because he went, the reward was written for him. The profits on a loss and when he was going for Fatima, what happened on the way he met our best or below and who his uncle. He had left MCE without knowing that the Muslims were coming. He had left MCI. He was on his way to Medina to do his job.
But what happened on the way he found the Muslims and so he joined the Muslims and he went to Morocco with them to conquer Mecca. And after the conquest of Makkah, some people came to the Prophet sallallahu St. Joseph, Allah, we want to make a joke. He said, Now he tries done. It's over. Now he tries done. So we see our best love the love and who was the last mohajirs last Mahajan. Even though he didn't go completely to Medina, he was on his way he found the prophets on a lot of them later on after the Congress, he did go with the prophets of Allah Islam to Medina, he went with him. But we see that that journey was stopped in the middle, but he is considered as the last mohajir
what do we learn from this? That when an opportunity to do good comes our way, do it. You know, for example, you might think from now Oh, but when Ramadan comes, I don't know if I'll be able to do it. I don't know if I'll be able to listen to two hours I need to sleep in the morning. You know, when the kids are at school? I need to sleep at that time. I have that fear also, how am I going to do it? Allahu Allah. I don't know yet. how it's going to work out. I was talking to my husband the other day and we were like, you know what, we have to figure something out because otherwise one person will be suffering a lot. So anyway, we discussed and we're like, we don't know how it's gonna
happen. And I don't know honestly, but I trusted a lot will make away because every Ramadan what happens? We get to fast and we get to pray. And Alhamdulillah we don't die, right? We don't fall unconscious Alhamdulillah so don't feel worried that what if I'm not able to do this? No. Say amen to biller, some master can say I believe in Allah and then be firm, you defer, Allah will give you firmness, Allah will make a way Allah will guide you for the walk or a Jew who Allah will either have to fill or the and when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer, which is to be done. When a person is traveling. we shorten the prayers when
we travel. But especially if you fear that those who had this belief may disrupt or attack you, because they had made the blood of the believers Hello. anytime they found Muslims, they would attack them. Indeed the disbelievers are ever to a clear enemy. So take precaution and when you are among them, and now the fear prayer is mentioned when you are among them and lead them in prayer, let a group of them stand in prayer with you and let them carry their arms and when they have prostrated then let them be in position behind you and have the other group come forward, which has not yet prayed and let them pray with you taking precaution and carrying their weapons. Those who
disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one single attack. But there is no blame upon you if you are troubled by rain or are in for putting down your weapons. But take precaution Indeed Allah has prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment. What do we see here? That even in prayer, for your protection, if you must, then hold your weapons? What a beautiful bond, you know, coming together of the dunya and the deen that keep the two together, pray with the weapons also, if necessary, don't leave your Salah. And don't put your life in danger either. Because what do we do generally, to protect our life, we leave
the deed, or sometimes it's the other way that we compromise on our health and safety. And when you have completed the prayer, then remember Allah, the man Walker ruled and we're allowed you to become standing sitting or lying on your sides. But when you become secure than reestablished regular prayer, indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times, meaning when it comes to Salah, the times are fixed. They're fixed the profits on the last one was asked what deed is the best and he said to perform the prayer at its fixed time. The prophets have a lot of them said they will certainly come upon your leaders who will do such and such and such and they
will also delay the prayer from their proper timings. They will delay the prayer from their proper timings. And we learned that and has been medical of the long run who once he was found weeping, crying, and when he was asked, Why are you crying? He said, I do not know anything which I used to know during the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam except this prayer, which is being lost meaning now people don't pray on time. And he wept because of that.
