Listen to the first few

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

looky

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

loo truly

00:01:15--> 00:01:22

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

00:01:24--> 00:02:14

Yes alone a carnal and fan, they ask you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, about the bounties, about the booty of war, this surah was revealed after the Battle of battle. And the Battle of butter was the first battle between the Muslims and the mushrik on the enemies. And we learned that the Muslims were victorious and when they were victorious, they obtained much war booty. So now there is a question, who gets it who has a share in it? What's the response? Allah says bullyville and finally Allah He was sold, say the bounties, the war booty is for Allah and the messenger. So fear Allah will also clear who that urbini calm and amend that which is between you and obey Allah and

00:02:14--> 00:02:58

His Messenger, if you should be believers. This battle was fought in the second year after hyjal, just two years after the prophet SAW the loss and and migrated to Medina. And it was fought in a month of Ramadan. And this was an unexpected battle. And it brought unexpected victory also, because the Muslims showed up there, they didn't have the right resources. They weren't equipped for it. But what happened, Allah granted them victory. And this is exactly what we are meant to do. Also, we have to do what is within our ability to show up, and then Allah will grant victory. Now we see that wealth, money is a huge fitna, it's a huge trial, and even the most intelligent and reasonable

00:02:58--> 00:03:46

people, what happens to them, they end up in arguments and differences when it comes to the distribution of money. And this was the first time the Muslims had encountered this issue of gore booty. And so it led to some differences amongst the Sahaba it led to some arguments between them. When the law was revealed over here in Sudoku and file how the booty is to be distributed. Before the law, the Muslims are reminded that you fought not for money, you fought because of your belief in Allah and His messenger. So and file, remember they are lilla what was sold, they belong to a learner's messenger. So they will decide how it is to be distributed. You don't decide that? What is

00:03:46--> 00:04:30

it that you need to be worried about? For the hola fear Allah? Will us live through that obey Unicom and amend the relationships that are between you, you need to think about mending your relationships out of the fear of Allah. Because pleasant mutual relationships, remember, they are far more important than money. They are better than the world and whatever is in it, unity love, they are more precious than any amount of wealth. If we look at the Syrah, the Muslims never suffered loss because of the lack of resources because of the lack of money, because of the few numbers of the Muslims know if ever they suffered from some harm. It was because of their disagreements. We see

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

that at Burger they were united at what had what happened. A small disagreement happened that the Muslims were appointed on that mount. They said Oh, the battle is over we can go whereas the profits of the loss and told them do not move from there. What happened that this agreement that this unity, it led to much loss. So over here, the Muslims are told, why are you worried about the money? You should be worried about what that of a nickel figure

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

that a man that which is between you meeting your relationships. That is what you need to be worried about. Because the risk the money that will come to you what is decreed for you will come to you, but your relationships you have to work on them. You have to work on them and try to fix them. In normal mode minuman alladhina ada Kira Allahu wa Jalla Kuru boo home the believers are only those who when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful and when his Verses are recited, it increases them in faith and upon their Lord, they realize these are the believers here we need to check ourselves that when Allah is mentioned, does the State of my heart change? Does it feel happy?

00:05:45--> 00:06:19

Or does it feel afraid? the vicar of Allah should move the heart. And if it does not move the heart, then that means the heart is hardened. The prophets of Allah seldom said that are the seven people who will be given shade under the throne of Allah on the Day of Judgment. One of them is who the person who remembers alone alone and his eyes swell with tears. Either look at Allah, what he loves kulu and this is something that must happen that when a person hears the is that

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

it increases them in faith. This may happen in a gathering, it may happen in Salah it may happen when alone, but especially when listening to the Quran, the heart must move. And if it doesn't, then there is a problem with Eamon where a lot of Bohemia, toa Kowloon and upon their Lord, they rely the ones who established prayer and from what We have provided them they spend. Those are the believers truly for them are degrees of high position with their Lord and forgiveness and noble provision. It is just as when your Lord brought you out from your home for the Battle of others in truth, while indeed a party among the believers were unwilling, meaning they were still mentally not prepared for

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

battle, arguing with you concerning the truth. after it had become clear, as if they were being driven toward death while they were looking on. They were afraid to face the danger of war. They didn't want to go some of them. But remember all believers when Allah promised you one of the two groups, because remember that the prophets have lots of them, he found out that a trade caravan was coming from Syria returning to Makkah. And this was the best way for the Muslims to get back to the mccanns. Because remember that when the Muslims would go to Makkah, like for example, we learned about sods law to learn who he went to Makkah to Ramallah he was doing to laugh. And one of the

00:07:38--> 00:08:22

leaders of Makkah, he came to him and he said, You are at the cargo, well, you have given refuge to our people. And he almost attempted to kill him. So sorrows of the lower end who said by Allah, you leave me or else I will ruin your trade, I will disturb your trade, I will not allow you to trade in peace. So that man finally he gave up. But it was clear that the two were at war. So the prophets have a lot of senem led a group of 300 Sahaba, slightly more than 300 to intercept this trade caravan, which was returning from a sham from Syria. And there was only 40 people guarding that caravan. So the prophets that allows him to 300 people, and that was fine. But what happened? Abu

00:08:22--> 00:09:03

sufian who was bringing that caravan he said were to Makkah, he said everybody just come I'm afraid the Muslims are going to do something. So just come and defend. So 1000 people came to defend that caravan. So a lot of promise the believers that you will have one of the two groups either you will get the trade caravan, or you will end up facing the army of 1000 men, it would be yours one of these, and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours, why? It would be easier 300 people fighting 40 so simple, it will be easier. And of course the game would be much more. But Allah intended to establish the truth by his words, and to eliminate the disbelievers and for that you had

00:09:03--> 00:09:44

to sacrifice so the Muslim set out in order to intercept the trade caravan what happened the trade caravan, it escaped the Muslim scam to bother and the army showed up over there 1000 of them. The Muslims wanted to become financially strong and then later face the enemy. But Allah wanted to eliminate the leaders of gopher This is why he wanted that this confrontation should happen that the Muslims should face the army. What happens in this life also we're looking for an easy option, a more comfortable option. But what happens No matter how much we try, we never get it something else is put before us arsa and crochet or Hydra Lancome you dislike something but it's good for you. And

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

it's possible that you love something but in reality it is bad for you. And remember this was the month of Ramadan on the 12th of Ramadan, the prophets of Allah send them left Medina to go to weather and then back and forth eventually on the 17th of Ramadan. The battle was fought

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

It was not easy. It was difficult and 300 people facing 1300 people who didn't go for battle they didn't go prepared for battle. They weren't prepared to interceptor trade caravan. That was it, but alone had a greater plan. Leo hickel hakoah, Alberto Wanaka almajiri moan that he should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals dislike it. Remember when you asked help of your Lord? And he answered you, because there is nothing more honorable near Allah then Dora, Allah answered you, you called upon him and the prophets of Allah Islam called upon Allah with much hope at this time, so much so that is, shall it fell and abubaker said yaroslava enough, you've prayed

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

enough.

00:10:46--> 00:11:30

But the prophets that allows them kept making there are in a Hadees we learned that there is no Muslim who fixes his face before Allah while asking him meaning he just sits there is a gala, I'm not going until you give me I'm not gonna give up until you help me ma'am in Muslim and young sleep a wedge Hello Lila here as the origin the famous Aladdin except that Allah will give him what he has asked for, or a level storage for him for later. But Allah will definitely respond is the silly sooner back home, you are asking your Lord and He answered you indeed I will reinforce you with 1000 from the angels following one another. And Allah made it not but good tidings and so that your

00:11:30--> 00:12:09

hearts would be a short thereby and victory is not but from Allah. It is not from your numbers. Indeed Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Remember when he overwhelmed you with drowsiness giving security from him and sent down upon you from the sky rain by which to purify you and I are moved from you the evil suggestions of shaman and to make steadfast your hearts and plant firmly there by your feet. So the Muslims are being reminded over here of the various forms of help that Allah sent them. And here even sleep has mentioned drowsiness because drowsiness even is a form of a blessing sometimes. Remember when your Lord inspired to the angels, I am with you to strengthen those who

00:12:09--> 00:12:50

have believed I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved. strike them upon the next and strike from them every fingertip. Why that is because they opposed Allah and His messenger and whoever opposes Allah and His messenger. Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty, that is your so tasted, and indeed for the disbelievers as a punishment of the Fire. Or you have believed when you meet those who disbelieve advancing for battle, do not turn to them your backs in flight, a very important lesson. When you go to do something, when you've begun when you've started, then don't turn your back, then keep doing it. Don't stop and whoever turns his back to them on such a day

00:12:51--> 00:13:26

unless swerving as a strategy for war, or joining another company has certainly returned with anger upon him from Allah and His refuge is hell and wretched is the destination because you see when you've started something it's always best to complete if you leave it in the middle saying Yeah, I'll do it maybe sometime then what happens? You never end up completing it. And you did not kill them but it was Allah Who killed them one Automator either. AMITA when I came in Maha Rama and you through not Oh prophet when you through but it was allaahu through meaning you did your best. However, only Allah granted success to your efforts, that he might test the believers with a good

00:13:26--> 00:14:03

test. Indeed, Allah is hearing and knowing that is so and also that Allah will weaken the plot of the disbelievers. If you disbelieve or seek victory, the defeat has come to you because we learned at the machine the 1000 men who left Macau before they left they went to the Kaaba, they held the kiss of the Kaaba and they prayed. They said, Oh Allah, whoever is upon the truth, grant him success. So Allah says, You asked for victory, the defeat has come to you. And if you desist from hostilities, it is best for you. But if you turn to war, we will return and never will you be availed by your large company at all, even if it should increase and that is because Allah is with

00:14:03--> 00:14:45

the believers, or you who have believed, obey Allah and His messenger and do not turn from him while you are here his order when I took on oculina colusa myrina, while Himalayas maroun Do not be like those who say we have heard while they have not heard, because if they had heard, their actions would have shown so those who have heard what happens, their actions change. If the actions do not change, then it means the truth was not heard. They did not listen to it. Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb, who do not use reason. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said once while standing on the mimbar Be merciful and you will be treated with

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

mercy. Forgive and Allah will forgive you. Woe to those who only hear, who only hear meaning they just hear and then they forget they don't change their actions. Those who knowingly persist on their sense, almost rude those who persist

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

Under sins while they know they know what they're doing is wrong yet they keep doing it. So even though they heard what the truth was, they didn't change work to them. Had Allah known any good in them, he would have made them here. And if he had made them here, they would still have turned away while they were refusing. Yeah, you have larina amanu is the G borella. He was it was Sunni, either De Lima your hair comb, or you have believed, respond to Allah and to the messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life and know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart, and that to him, you will be gathered. He knows the secrets of your hearts, your feelings, your

00:15:37--> 00:16:17

intentions, your fears, your worries, so he knows when he orders you to do something, do it. Don't delay all those fears, dispel them by responding to Allah, what the whole faith Nutan and fear a trial, which will not strike those who have wronged amongst you exclusively, because if they don't stop those doing wrong, they could be caught by the same punishment as well. Why are no more anila shaadi.com and know that Allah is severe in penalty. And remember when you were few and oppressed in the land, fearing that people might abduct you, but he sheltered you, he supported you with his victory, and provided you with good things that you might be grateful, or you will have believed, do

00:16:17--> 00:16:54

not betray Allah and the messenger or betray your trust, while you know meaning you know, the consequences were normal and unwelcome will lead to conflict and know that your property and your children are but a trial and that Allah has with him a great reward. Because for the sake of money for the sake of our children, we ended up disobeying a law a lot. A lot reminds us these are a trial. Well, you will have believed if you fear Allah, the adrar looking for corner he will grant you a criteria and meaning even if nobody's there to tell you what to do or what not to do, a lot will teach you He will give you wisdom but when when you fear Allah and will remove from you your

00:16:54--> 00:17:30

misdeeds and forgive you, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. And remember when those who disbelieved plotted against you to restrain you, or can you or evict you from Makkah, meaning this was before the hyjal. But they plan and Allah also plans and Allah is the best of planners. And when our Verses are recited to them, they say, we have heard if we will, we could say something like this, they're not impressed by the Quran. This is not but legends of the former peoples. And remember when they said, Oh Allah, if this should be the truth from you, then rain down upon the stones from the sky or bring us a painful punishment. They would say this in a way to challenge not

00:17:30--> 00:18:07

as they are, because they were so confident about what they were doing. They were so confident that what they were upon was right. They were doing right in opposing the prophets, Allah is Allah. Allah says, But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness. Walmart can alohomora Viva home, while homea still futile and because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, The servant is safe from punishment of Allah as long as he seeks forgiveness of Allah. So as long as a person who's seeking forgiveness of Allah, He is safe from punishment. But why should Allah not punish them? While they obstruct people from amnesty that how

00:18:07--> 00:18:51

long and they were not fit to be its guardians? Its true guardians are not but the righteous, but most of them do not know. Most of them do not know who is most deserving of being in the masjid The one who fears Allah, Sandman and fantasy he wrote to a Buddha and he said, Oh my brother, our likeableness God forgives him who hold on to the masjid adhere to it, meaning make sure you go to the masjid be a regular attendant, because I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say, Al Masjid obey to cool Luther King. The Masjid is the house of every righteous person. So over here, the machine of Makkah, they took a lot of pride in the fact that they were the caretakers of the Kaaba. Allah says

00:18:51--> 00:19:27

they're not deserving of this, who's deserving of being in the masjid, and cocoon. Those who fear Allah, and their prayer at the house was not except whistling and hand-clapping meaning on the go to the Kaaba to worship. This is what they do. So taste the punishment for what you disbelieved. Indeed, those who have this belief, spend their wealth to avert people from the way of Allah so they will spend it, then it will be for them a source of regret, then they will be overcome, and those who have disbelieved unto hell they will be gathered. This is so that Allah May distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked, some of them upon others and heat them altogether and put

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

them into hell. It is those who are the losers, this is real bankruptcy. When nothing or one's money of one's life's effort of one striving is of use, he spends he works hard, but then in the hereafter he will find nothing. Why? Because his aqeedah was not right, say to those who have disbelieved that if this is what has previously occurred will be forgiven to them. But if they returned to hostility, then the precedent of the former rebellious people has already taken place and fight them until there is no fitna and until their religion. All of it.

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

As for Allah, and if they seize then Indeed Allah is seeing of what they do. So what do we see here that the Muslims are being told that these people have hated you and opposed you simply because of your religion? When they threaten you and come to fight you then will you not stand up because this was the first battle and many more will come when in Coelho, but if they turn away for a normal anila homeowner come, then know that Allah is your protector. Nirmala Mola, whenever ominously excellent is the protector and excellent is the helper. When a person goes in Allah's way, then he needs a loss help, otherwise, he cannot do much. And when he receives a lot of help, then the help

00:20:43--> 00:21:25

of a lot is sufficient for him. We learned that at the Battle of word when the Muslims with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had taken shelter in a crevice in one of the mountains in a small cave of Lucifer and he came outside and he said a few words for the Muslims. And then he said that we have Rosa and there is no reserve for you we have the idol and you don't have an idol. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the Muslims, will you not respond? They said What should we say? So the Muslim said, we have a law. He is our mo law. And you in reality have normal law? Because the one who has allas help, then he is victorious. So May Allah subhanaw taala. Grant his sincerity, and

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

grant us his special help. So Chronicle long will be humble. I shall do Illa Illa illa Anta esta hirokawa to blue lake Santa Monica Rahmatullahi wa barakato
