Juz’ 10: Al-Anfal 41-75 – At-Taubah 1-89
All you have believed, what is the matter with you that when you are told to go forth and the cause of Allah, you adhere heavily to the earth, the indication is towards the Battle of the book, in which, like I mentioned to you, the participation was mandatory. So the believers are being reprimanded over here that why why are you feeling lazy? Why are you clinging to the earth? Why aren't you readily happily actively going forth in the way of Allah? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the hereafter? But what is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter, except very little, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, explaining to us how how little
the worldly life is, its enjoyment is, he said, that if one of you should dip his finger in the ocean, and then he should see as to what has stuck to me in how much water has come out, on his finger from the ocean, this is what the water that has come on his finger that is the near and what is the ocean, the hereafter?
When you wet your hand, what happens, especially these days, it just takes a few seconds, for it to become dry,
isn't it so quickly, it becomes dry. And this is the reality of this life. So quickly, it disappears. So quickly, its pleasure comes to an end.
And over time, what has remained of this dunya is less and less compared to what it was before. The prophets of longest and upset that Allah has made this entire Earth very clean very little. And what has remained from it now is nothing but little meaning at the beginning, there was still something now, it is very little compared to how much there was before.
You know, when you look at the bones of the dinosaurs, you wonder how big they were, how much they ate? What was the size of those trees, which they ate? Right? What kind of a world was this huge, massive so much. But now what do we see everything is small, small, small.
And the prophets on lots of them continued, he said, and what has remained of this world is like 30 water source whose water has been taken, and what remains is just murky water. Have you ever seen that? That in a place like for example, a river that was full with water, but then what happened to dried up gradually, and then what is left at the end? Very little water, that is also muddy, it's not even clear anymore? So what do we see in this world also, whatever, whatever things there are, are they in their purest form? No, everything is polluted. From the soil, to the air to the water, everything is polluted.
So over time, we see that the value of this dunya is only diminishing,
it's only diminishing from our material higher to dounia fill out karate Illa Colleen, so something of this polluted dounia that we do have the little dunia that we do have, should we not give it so that we can strive in the way of Allah so that we can have what is the thief?
Think about it, giving up a little bit now. So that we can get more later. You know, like if somebody were to offer you give me all your old old clothes, all of your old clothes, give them to me and take these $10,000
not 1050 and go get what you want. Would you take that off?
You'd say yeah, take my clothes and take my children's clothes and take my husband's clothes, take my linens also take my curtains also take everything. I'll go buy everything new, especially with this generous amount Allah offers is this, you give a little bit of your time off your energy, strive a little bit in the way of Allah and what will you get eternity in the hereafter endless reward. So don't cling to this dirty khaleel world. A Latin Pharaoh, if you do not go for it. He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people and you will not harm him at all. And Allah is over all things competent. So if you stay back, who will you deprive
only yourself if you do not aid the Prophet? And yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is no longer there, but his legacy is still alive. His mission is still alive, his own mind still there. Then Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out of Makkah as one of two and this was in the cave during the hedger when Abu Bakar was with him when they were in the cave of Toad and he said to his companion, let that happen in the Lucha Marina. Do not grieve Indeed Allah is with us because ibaka became very worried as much as we can. We're literally at the mouth of the cave. Allah sent down his tranquility upon him and supported him with angels. You did not
See, and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah that became the highest and Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. What do we learn from this?
That if we don't strive in the cause of Allah, Allah Deen will not suffer, it will not suffer, it will still carry on who will suffer them? We will suffer. Therefore, in funeral if our fun What do you call them? What do you I hate to be Mr. Li Kumar and fusi confy subete Allah go forth, whether light or heavy. Sometimes we feel very light, we have energy. And sometimes if you're very heavy, just moving one leg is also difficult. So go forth in every condition, and strive with your wealth and your lives in because of a law. Why that is better for you. If you only knew, had it been an easy game and a moderate trip, the hypocrites would have followed you. Because this journey was
several 100 kilometres long journey to the book was very long. And the battle was not going to be easy because the Muslims were now going to fight the Romans, the Romans were a superpower superpower. You know, when you learn about the Byzantines, right? This is what the prophet SAW the Lawson was taking the Muslims to that they should fight them. And there's a whole background to why this battle was necessary. But Allah says that if it was an easy gain and a moderate trip, the hypocrites would have followed you. But distant to them was the journey, it seemed very long. Generally what happens if we're told Oh, it's just once a week thing,
just twice a week, then we'll say okay, I can think about it. But if it's 2930 days in a row, then what happens? I'll think about it.
This is something that does not fit a believer.
He will go in the way of Allah, even if it is a little difficult for him. And it is difficult initially but gradually what happens, it becomes easier, you'll begin to enjoy it. And they will swear by Allah, if we were able, we would have gone forth with you Destroying Themselves through false faults. And Allah knows that indeed they are liars are for Allah who unka Lima and the entire home. May Allah pardon you. Why did you give them permission to remain behind you should not have until it was evident to you who were truthful and you knew who were the liars when the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he ordered the people to prepare for the battle. The hypocrites came to him
seeking permission to stay behind. And they came up with excuses. One person said, Oh, I'm unwell. I have this I have that excuses. False excuses and the prophets of Allah Islam kept allowing them. Allah says, Why did you allow them you should not have allowed them and then the reality would have been exposed. Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day would not ask permission of you to be excused from striving with their wealth and their lives. No, they don't even take it as an option for themselves. And Allah is Knowing of those who fear Him. So those who are passionate about the religion of Allah, they don't go on seeking permission. Can I be excused from this? Can I be excused
from that? You know, when the prophets of Allah went for the book, he appointed our de la hora and who, in Medina to take care of his family. Because the prophets family was huge, so early that the Lord who was made to stay behind in Medina, you stay in Medina. Now what happened? The Muslims are getting ready, and they leave. When they left a little bit longer on he put his armor on God on his mount and ran and joined the prophets of Allah and he said, you have a sort of law, you leave him behind with the women, the children are old, and people who are known to be hypocrites are not staying behind. I have to go with you. It doesn't make sense that I'm staying behind and you're
struggling in the way of a law and the prophets of Allah and told him no, he go back Why you are like heroin was to Musa Musa have to go remember we learned about most artists that I'm going to mount and then who stayed behind taking care of the affairs of the bunnies try heroin. So then earlier, the Lord who finally agreed and he went back, but his heart was throughout with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Because you see, when you're passionate about something, do you ever stay behind from it? Think of the whole family is going to the mall? How would you like to stay behind? If you were made to stay behind you would cry,
cry if the whole family is going on vacation? And you have to stay behind? It's unfair. Bala who are Lehman bimota clean, then who is it that looks for excuses in order to stay behind only those who would ask permission of you who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and whose hearts have doubted and they in their doubt are hesitating. So who stays behind people whose Eman is deficient. And if they had intended to go forth, they would have prepared for it some preparation, but a lot of dislike they're being sent. So he kept them back and they were told remains
Behind with those who remain, have they gone forth with you, they would not have increased you except in confusion. And they would have been active among you seeking to cause you fitna, and among you are avid listeners to them, meaning it's good that these people didn't go along with you. Because if they did, they would have caused more trouble, then bringing benefit. And the fact is that these people talk and complain a lot. And when they would complain a lot, there's still some believers were weak, and they would get impressed they would get affected by them.
And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers. They had already desire dissension before and had upset matters for you, until the truth came and the ordinance of Allah appeared while they were reverse. So now their hypocrisy is being completely exposed. And among them is He Who says permit me to remain at home and do not put me to trial. You see, people came with different excuses false excuses, but only one is mentioned in the Quran. And what was that? This man just in case? He said to the Prophet so the last time that I've heard Roman women are very beautiful, and I am a man whose weaknesses women, so if you take me there, I might end up doing something wrong. This is absurd.
Women are beautiful everywhere. This was just a pretense that look, I'm so pious, I have to stay behind that I don't do sin.
I have to stay behind so I don't commit wrong. You know, this is just like a person single. I can't go to a Koran teacher to learn how to recite Quran from her because if I recite in front of I will do, I will show off and so I can't even learn how to recite the Quran. Really. You have to learn. I can't go pray, you know in the masjid because it will be showing off. I have to preserve my nia. know Allah says, Allah Phil fitternity Saku unquestionably intertrial they have fallen. They try to avoid the so called fitna. They're already in the fitness which fitness the fitness of nifa are in Niger hanham Allah Maha pattonville caffeine and indeed hell will encompass the disbelievers if good
befalls you in distresses them but if disaster strikes you they say we took our matter in hand before and turn away while they are rejoicing. Calm say to them let you sleep on a llama Casa de la colina como la la, la la la jolla tawakoni. Me noon, say never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us. He is our protector and upon Allah let the believers rely. You see, sometimes when a person goes in the way of Allah, He suffers. Right. And then he's told Oh, if you had not gone to the masjid, your car would not have been hitting the parking lot.
Because sometimes it happens that you park the car outside and you come in to do something good. And when you go, your car is damaged.
There was a lady who went somewhere for a class like this. And behind at her house, there was a robbery.
And she said 100 Allah, I was gone for the class, because if I was at home,
it would have happened in front of me Who knows what I would have suffered? Thank God all that did not happen in front of me. It's about how you think, isn't it? It's about how you think. Because the fact is that what the hardship that is written for us, it will come to us. If we were meant to be injured, we were going to be injured, we were going to be injured. So don't hold yourself back from a noble cause. Just to protect your health, protect your wealth, protect your car, protect yourself, no, this life is about trial is about loss is about hardships. Why not that these hardships come in the way of Allah. And remember, we should never think like this that Oh, if I had not done this,
such and such would not have happened. This is something that does not benefit a believer, it is a part of a man to believe lay your sleeve on a llama katapola hulin. A man want to obey even carpro the Longhorn when he said to him that I'm confused about al Qaeda, so tell me something by means of which Allah will remove my confusion. So he said we're allowed to punish everyone in the heavens and the earth, he would do so without being unjust to them. And were he to show mercy to them, His mercy would be much better than their actions merited. Were you to spend in support of a lost cause and amount of gold equivalent to Earth? Allah would not accept it from you, till you believed in Divine
Decree, and knew that what has come to you could not miss you, and that what has missed you could not come to you, and were you to die believing anything else you would enter hell.
Because part of the man is to believe in a God and part of believing in a god is that what has reached me, was meant to reach me.
Say, do you await for us except one of the two best things while we await for you that alone afflicted with punishment from himself or at our hands? So wait indeed we along with you are waiting, say spend willingly or unwillingly never will it be accepted from you in
Do you have been defined to disobedient people, and what prevents their expenditures from being accepted from them, but that they have disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and that they come not to prayer, except while they are lazy, and that they do not spend except while they're unwilling. And when deeds are performed with this state of heart and mind, then they're worth nothing. So let not their wealth nor their children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in worldly life, and that their souls should depart at death while they are disbelievers. You know, this is so sad, that a person
you know, sacrifices so much for the sake of their money for the sake of their family, but then what happens at death? The separate from it? Haven't you ever seen a house that was completely set up, but now the owner is gone? They're gone, they have died, the house that they lived for, now it belongs to other people, the things that they're valued. Now they're garbage in front of other people. So what use was that life? What did it bring to a person and this whereby Allah that they are from among you, while they are not in reality from among you, but they are a people who are afraid if they could find a refuge or some caves or any place to enter and hide? They would turn to
it while they run heedlessly. And among them are some who criticize you concerning the distribution of charities, if they're given from them, they approve, but if they're not given from them at once, they become angry. Why? Because they're greedy for money. So if they get money, they're happy. And if they're not given money, they become very rude and harsh. This is who the person who is a slave to money slave to determine Deena. Firstly, what happens they avoid to the best of their ability, what spending anything in the way of Allah, and if they have to give the give it unhappily, and when they're given something, then they become happy. If they're not given something, they become very
angry. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Let the slave of the note and did harm the slave of dinar and Dirham let him perish, as he is pleased if these things are given to him, and if not, then he is displeased. Let such a person bearish and relapse and if he's pierced with authority, let him not find anyone to take it out for him. Why? Because this is the height of selfishness, height of selfishness. The person who's extremely selfish, greedy for money, if he's given he's happy, not give up. Why didn't you give it to me demanding so rudely and accusing other people of being unfair? This is what extreme selfishness This is a person who lives for himself very greedy, such people are
not worth any mercy. If only they had been satisfied with what Allah and His Messenger gave them and this has been Allah sufficient for us as Allah. So you Dino Muhammad Ali, he was Sulu, Allah will give us of his bounty, and so will His Messenger. Indeed, we are desires toward Allah, this would have been better for them.
Indeed, zeca expenditures are only for the poor, meaning below the hook of law of the poor people who have nothing and for the needy, who don't have enough to fulfill their needs. And for those employed to collect the cat mean the workers and for bringing hearts together for Islam, and for free and captives are slaves and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah, do you have Dawa in Allah and for the stranded traveler and obligation imposed by Allah, and Allah is Knowing and wise. And in particular, this ayah teaches us who the recipients of this money are. And this shows to us that these benefits are only for those who work hard. And for those who are truly needy, those who
setback and don't strive. And there, they already have so much money, and they don't deserve more from charity. And among them are those who abuse the profit and say he is an ear. The hypocrites said this. They did not trust their leader. They criticized his good qualities, and they accused him of what he was not. And people who do this with their leaders. What does it show their insincerity. Say, it is an ear of goodness for you why they said he was an ear because I said well, he listens to everything. He listens to everything. He accepts everybody, whatever excuse we take to him, he believes us. Well, the prophets of the last time if he did that, Allah says this is a good for you.
It is an ear of goodness for you that believes in Allah and believes the believers and is a mercy for those who believe among you, and those who abuse the Messenger of Allah for them as a painful punishment. They swear by Allah to you to satisfy you who the hypocrites but Allah and His Messenger are more worthy for them to satisfy if they should be believers. Do they not know that whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger, that for him is a fire of hell wherein he will abide eternally. That is a great disgrace. This is alizee This is real embarrassment. This is real disgrace that a person has taken to the fire of hell. The hypocrites are
apprehensive, lest asuna be revealed about them informing them of what is in their heart because a guilty one is always afraid. Right? When a person has done something wrong, he's always afraid that he's going to be exposed. Say, Mark as you wish, Indeed, Allah will expose that which you fear. And if you ask them, they will surely say we were only conversing and playing because they made jokes about Allah about the Quran about the prophets of Allah and about the Muslims. And later on when they were confronted that How could you do that? They said, oh, we're just having some fun.
Look at how defensive they become. Allah says, say, is it Allah and His verses and His messenger that you were mocking it you can find anything else to have fun with. Make no excuse. You have disbelieved after your belief. If we pardon one faction of you, we will punish another faction because they were criminals. Those who were ignorant may still be pardoned. But those who initiated such things, those who sparked such inflammatory speech, then they are guilty. The hypocrite men and the hypocrite women are of one another. I mean, they're all the same. They enjoin what is wrong and forbid what is right. Remember discouraging others from doing good? Isn't if out. discouraging
somebody from doing something good is hypocrisy. And they close their hands meaning they don't spend in the way of Allah. They spend on themselves? They have forgotten Allah, so he has forgotten them accordingly. Indeed, the hypocrites It is they who are the Define Fie disobedience, Allah has promised the hypocrite men and the hypocrite women and the disbelievers, the fire of hell, wherein they will abide eternally, it is sufficient for them and Allah has cursed them, and for them as an enduring punishment. You've seen the Falcon also be in women. You know, we think that when it comes to the matters of the end, it's just men, men, no, men and women. You disbelievers are like those
before you they were stronger than you in power and more abundant in wealth and children. They enjoy their portion of worldly enjoyment, and you have enjoyed your portion as those before you enjoyed their portion, and you have engaged in vanities like that in which they engaged it is those whose deeds have become worthless in this world and in the hereafter. And it is they who are the losers has there not reached them the news of those before them, the people of New and the tribes of Athens, the mood and the people of Ibrahim and the companions of meridian and the towns that were overturned. Their messengers came to them with clear proofs, and Allah would never have wronged
them, but they were wronging themselves. So what are you doing? Well, momina one minute bow boom. Oh, Leah about yet morona bill Murphy way and hona Delmon calm, the believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer. So these things are not just the work of men. It's not just the obligation of men to learn the Quran and teach it. No, even women have to do this because we're all supporting each other and establish prayer and gives a cat and obey Allah and His messenger. Those Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. We see that the relationship of a believer with
another believer is very unique. A believer strengthens the other because the work of the thing cannot be done alone. And where there is love and support, a team is formed and where there is a team, then what will happen, they will be stronger, and the work will be strengthened, and they will be successful in their mission. Allah has promised the believing men and believing women gardens beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally, and pleasant dwellings. Pleasant dwellings. Why? Because sometimes they have to leave your house for some time right? to strive in the way of Allah, Allah who will give a better place pleasant dwellings tell me which day is that when you wake
up and you look at your house and you feel confident?
What happens? laundry, oh my god, there is a mess again. I clean the bathroom yesterday and it's dirty again. Even when you have somebody come and clean your house for you. I think that increases you in stress. Why? Because now you're worried about maintaining the cleanliness, the houses of this world they are a blessing but they can never bring this true satisfaction. True satisfaction is in the houses of Jenna only pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residents, but approval from Allah is greater. It is that which is the great attainment even or one of the lower and who said that the prophets of the Lawson was asked, What are the houses of Jimena like he said, a brick of
gold and a brick of silver. It's mortar is a mosque and its soil is observed on and it's pebbles are pearls and rubies. In another headies we learned that the prophets that allows them said in paradise there would be for a believer attend meaning a house a room of a single hollowed Pearl, meaning it will be a pearl. So you can imagine the smoothness and the shine, the breadth of which would be 60 miles
The width is 60 miles which house can you get over here, which is 60 miles wide. Tell me which house. This is the reward for who? Those who work together for the cause of a law, or profit fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh with them. And their refuge is hell and wretched as a destination. They swear by Allah that they did not say anything against the Prophet while they had said the word of disbelief and disbelieved after their pretense of Islam, and planned that which they were not to attain. And they were not resentful except for the fact that Allah and His Messenger had enriched them of his bounty. So if they repent, it is better for them. But if they
turn away, Allah will punish them with the painful punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and there will not be for them on Earth, any protector or helper. And among them are those who made a covenant with Allah saying, if you should give us from his bounty, we will surely spend in charity, and we will surely be among the righteous setting conditions. But then what happens when Allah gave them from his bounty, they were stingy with it, and turned away while they refused, so he penalize them with hypocrisy in their hearts until the day they will meet him, because they failed Allah in what they promised him and because they have bitterly used to lie, they will remain like this, until
they die. Why? Because this is a bad habit, making promises and breaking them, delaying things procrastinating. This is a bad habit, alarm era llamo did they not know that Allah knows their secrets and their private conversations, and that Allah is the Knower of the unseen, those who criticize the contributors among the believers concerning their charities, and criticize the ones who find nothing to spend except their effort. So they ridicule them, Allah will ridicule them, and they will have a painful punishment of almost rude said that when the prophets of the Law Center ordered us to contribute for the JCL Ursula for the expedition to the boot for the Battle of the
book, he said that we began to work as porters because we had no money. So we worked as porters so that we can make some money and spend that. So a man came with just a handful of data, half a handful of dates, he came and when he put it the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was happy with him, and the hypocrites. They said, This man is showing off. And they mocked the Muslims and said, Yeah, you're gonna go fight the Romans with the handful of dates. Allah has asked forgiveness for them or do not ask forgiveness for them. If you should ask forgiveness for them 70 times, never will ALLAH forgive them. Because if the heart is not repentant, then why should a love forgive? That is because
they disbelieved in a line is messenger, and Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people. Those who remain behind rejoiced in their staying at home after the departure of the Messenger of Allah and dislike to strive with their wealth and their lives and the cause of Allah and they said, Do not go forth in the heat. They discourage each other from going in the way of Allah. They said, don't go It's too hot. Because it was summertime. It was around July time when this battle of the book happened. When the expedition happened, they said do not go forth in the heat. Allah says say to them, the fire of hell is more intense in heat, if they could but understand How hot is the fire
of hell? Yeah, even though he said that the fire that you can do is a 17th portion of the fire of hell. Just one 17th portion of the fire hose multiply this 70 times and that is a fire of how and twice has the fire been cooled with the waters of the sea. So imagine how intense is a fire of hell. And it's constantly being increased. The prophets of the Lawson said last night I saw in a dream two men coming to me. One of them said the person who kindled the fire is Malik, meaning it hasn't just been kindled and left. It's constantly being kindled. It's constantly being increased. And one breath of those inhale would cause utter destruction, now have eaten acetyl Sahaja the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam said, if there were 100 in other reports, 1000 people in the masjid or more, and one man from the people of the fire would breathe out. And that breath would reach these people in the mustard it would burn this whole place. And everyone in it, just one breath.
koneru Johanna mashatu hurrah. So let not the heat of the summer, prevent a person from going out and along the way. So let them laugh a little. And then we much as recompense for what they used to earn, if Allah should return you to affection of them after the expedition, and then they asked your permission to go out to battle again, say you will not go out with me ever. This was the last battle of the prophets that Ulsan participated in. Very soon after this expedition he passed away so you'll never participate with me again and you will never fight with me and enemy. Indeed you were satisfied with sitting at home the first time so sit now
With those who sit behind, I showed the low on her set the messenger of a loss of loss and upset that people will continue to keep themselves away from the front roll until Allah will keep them away. Allah will keep them away and in a version of Buddhahood that Allah will keep them away from the front in the Hellfire, meaning they will be made to enter Hellfire because they delay they keep behind. So this is a crime. So Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not pray the funeral prayer over any of them who has died ever, or stand at his grave indeed that is believed in Allah and His messenger and died while they were defiantly disobedient imagine. And let not their wealth and their
children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in this world and that their souls should depart at death while they are disbelievers. And when a surah was revealed in joining them to believe in Allah and to fight with his messenger, those of wealth among them, ask your permission to stay back. And they said leave us to be with those who sit at home. They were satisfied to be with those who stayed behind, and their hearts were sealed over. So they do not understand but the messenger and those who believed with him, fought with their wealth and their lives, those will have all that is good. And it is those who are the successful, Allah has prepared
for them gardens beneath which rivers flow wherein they will abide eternally. That is the great attainment. This is the great success but this is for who those who strive in the way of Allah who bear temporary loss for the sake of Allah so that later Allah will give them more, because this life is temporary, it is short lived anyway, so why not give up a part of it to get a whole lot of rewards in the hereafter when Allah has so much to offer. So many less penalty makers amongst those who readily happily willingly worship Him and strive in His cause and not come up with false excuses to stay behind depriving themselves of reward. So Chronicle long behind the shadow La ilaha illa
Anta as the hirokawa to blue lake Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
