With carnamah Youth Rafi BeautyCon. Minaya Tila he will Hekmati in Allaha, Cana la Cleveland hubiera. And remember what is recited in your houses of the verses of Allah and wisdom. Indeed, Allah is Ever subtle and acquainted, meaning he is aware of all things, even the most hidden secrets, even the most, you know, hidden moments when a woman would display her beauty Allah knows Allah is watching.
Right? Like, for example, it's possible that a woman is in a place where her father is not there, her husband's not there, her parents are not there and she has a chance to do double damage, and she does it. Now this is what deceiving Who? ourselves because Allah is watching. Remember when we wear the hijab, we don't do it because of our men. We don't do it because of our men. Yes, it might make them happy, it might even make them angry. It happens. Some men don't like their wives to be covered up. They don't want that. So we're not doing it to please our men, we're doing it to please. Allah subhanaw taala. And when we are doing it in obedience to Allah, then we need to do it whether we are
online, right? Or we are, you know, somewhere at school or at work, no matter where we are. This is an obedience in submission to Allah. And over here we see in this ayah, that a lot of times the women of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that when you are at home, what should you do?
What should you do? Remember what is recited in your houses of the verses of Allah, meaning recite the Quran, learn the Quran and wisdom, what is the wisdom, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because you see earlier it was mentioned, remain in your houses. Now for a woman Yes, her real center is her home, because in order to look after the familial obligations that are upon her, she has to be at home. But never, ever misunderstand this and think that this means a woman should be at home and serve her home, spending her life in homemaking, and hair styling and clothes, shopping and child rearing. These are all parts of life. But because of them, she must not
forget the vicar of Allah. She must not forget or in the unknown. Darlene learning teaching hikma the Quran as well as the hikma, the Sunnah, the Hadith, the Simba, she has to keep all of these things alive in her house. How is a woman meant to get the recitation of the Quran? the mention of the prophets of the Muslims teachings alive in her house? How? By being engaged with it herself. Because if she's not engaged with it herself, then what's gonna happen? What's gonna happen? She's gonna forget to read the Quran. And will her children read the Quran? No way. No way, then she's so concerned about keeping her house clean that she will put the TV on, right so that the children are
glued to the TV so that she can get some work done. And within a few weeks, two children are hooked to TV. And when you read the Quran to them, when you want to open the Quran before then they don't want it. They don't want it at all. Why? Because the mother herself is disconnected from the vicar of Allah.
You know what, we have really misunderstood these verses. People go to extremes, they say, Oh, these verses are only for the wife of the prophet SAW the loss and they've got nothing to do with us. All right, or they go to another extreme that look, women have to be at home.
Women have to be at home. So you know what, even when you go to learn Quran or teachable on you shouldn't be doing that. No, this is not what it means. We need to understand these ayat by looking at the lives of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what did they do? How did they implement these verses? You see what karma means? You remember it yourself and also mention it What does it mean? Remember yourself and also mentioned, make mention of it? Right? So this means read the Quran yourself, learn the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam yourself in your house, and also make them known. Meaning once you have learned, then teach them on and I shall we see that she did not
just retire to her home. And this remained there dressing up and all our time was spent in just dressing up or looking after her house. I mean, if the profits or the loss of them didn't allow a soft mattress in her house, what do you think was the state of that house? What kind of a house was it? decorated? Top to bottom? What happens to a woman when she stays in her house for one week? If she's told your house is your priority, what will she do? There is not a shelf there is not a corner except that it is decorated with something all right. And then every day she has to clean every other day. She has to look after things. Right? Then one is broken. One needs to be replaced. One
she's bored off and the money is going into this her attention is going into this. What is it that the wives of the Prophet SAW the loss of them did? What did they do with their lives? They talked
The Quran and the Sunnah, they learn it themselves, and they taught it have started the llama on her. She had the most health. Can you imagine she had the honor of having the most have, it's known as the most half of the level. Because women are a lot more unusual when he had the Quran written and then copy sent to different parts of the Muslim world. The original copy was kept with half settled the lower end. And then when Earth Mama, the woman who became the halifa, he borrowed the Messiah from hafsa rodilla, who had more copies of it may and then he sent them across the Muslim world. She had the most half, can you imagine a lady? What does it mean that she knew the most half?
Like other people did not? like men did not? Because if they knew it, then they wouldn't ask her for the copy.
They wouldn't ask her for that copy if they knew it. So her level of knowledge of the Book of Allah was really greater than that of many men of that time. I shot a demo on how men would go to her to ask her matters of the deen. So, for a woman Remember, you know, for her to be a teacher, that is an excellent thing to do. It's like the best profession. Why? Because this is something that she can do in every stage of her life in whatever situation she's in. Single married, pregnant nursing. You know, three children, five children, 10 children, doesn't matter, grandchildren, right, moving whatever job, no job, no matter what's going on, in her life, for her to be connected with learning
and teaching the dean, it's the best thing to do. And remember that teaching the dean it's not just in a classroom, it can even be through writing. It can even be on a one on one basis online through art, you know, at social events, social gatherings, but this is something that women really need to think about. Because as women of the Muslim oma and remember the Muslim oma, what is our role, oh man was out we are the connection, the link the word support between people and allow meaning if they want to reach a law, if they want to know what Allah likes, they have to know about that through us. And what is it that we have the Quran? But if we don't give the Quran to people, then
how are they going to know? So never think that as a Muslim woman, your obligation is just to stay at home and dress up and cook and clean and sleep? No, that is all part of life. But in addition to that, was gonna make you fluffy boo. tikkanen ayatullah, he will hikmah you know, if any woman had the right to just take it easy, it would have been the wives of the Prophet sallallahu. Sunnah. Right? Because they were told you stay at home. So for a woman who's told stay at home, and I should have although I had no children have sort of the lower end handle children. Right? So imagine women with no children there at home. What do you think a woman like this would do? What do you think she
would do? Where would her time go in social events, and just sitting with her friends in dressing up in making clothes and doing one thing after the other like this? But we see that their lives were spent in this world called nama youth Laffy BeautyCon i mean i Atilla he will hikmah in the law of Canada lottery from Columbia Law in the Muslim ina well muslimah well me Nina well Mina well, Connie Tina well carnita wasabi Tina Wasabi Wasabi Wasabi rod.

indeed the Muslim men and the Muslim women, the believing men and the believing women, the obedient men and the obedient women, the true for men and the truthful women, the patient man and the patient women, the humble men and the humble women, the charitable men and the charitable women, the fasting men and the fasting women, the men who guard their private parts, and the women who do so. And the men who remember Allah often, and the women who do so for them. Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward, meaning he will reward them fully. Why for what they have done. Now, these qualities that are mentioned over here, these are the most prominent the most significant features of a Muslim
community. That what our Muslim men like and what our Muslim women like, this is what they are like, Who are they? They have a man in their heart and they have Islam on the apparent meaning. They are in complete submission to Allah outward
As well obeying Him, and then their obedience is consistent because connote doesn't just mean to obey once in a while, but obedience that is consistent and with humility, their truthful, Truth and Honesty are their morals part of their lives. And in salah and outside of sada, they humble themselves before Allah, and those who give sadaqa especially women must give sadaqa a lot. And those who fast women and men who fast, those who guard their private parts, and those who remember a lot much these are all qualities of those whom Allah has promised forgiveness, and a great reward. And that is what is mentioned at the end of this ayah that those who remember Allah much with that
clean aloka feeling with that key rod, meaning those who remember a lot much they do not stop at any limit. They never say, Okay, enough, they know, they do there, they could insula, and then after Salah, they do some more thicker, and then as evening comes in, they do some more thicker, and as they're sitting in waiting, they do some more as they're walking. They do they could as they're driving, they do the alladhina Yes, kurunegala piano barudan valid, you know, be him. They do that they can have a law in every state that they are in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then we'll finally do and have gone ahead. They've gone ahead. The Sahaba Rasul Allah who
he said they are those men and women who remember a lot much meaning they are really at the forefront. They've really gone ahead, they've left everyone behind who those who remember a lot much the men and the women, and remember that every good deed, whether it is Allah, or it is a fasting or it is Hutch, any good deed, when it is done with the vicar of Allah, then remember that action becomes the best action, it becomes the best action, the reward for it is multiplied many times that action becomes beautiful in the sight of Allah. So with vacuuming aloka Thielen was the key lot. It is not for believing men, or a believing woman, that when Allah and His Messenger have decided a
matter, that they should thereafter have any choice about their affair, meaning when the hokum of Allah comes, then the believing men and believing women, they don't do whatever they please, what do they do, they change themselves according to the command of Allah, and the command of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they change themselves, they want they try their best to make sure that their their actions conform to the hokum of Allah, they conform to the hokum of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam, that they match, you understand that the actions they actually match the command, they actually go along with each other. Not that the command is one thing. And the
practical demonstration, the practical implementation of that is completely different. Has it ever happened that you give someone instructions? And then they do the exact opposite of that or something completely different? Completely different? Right? And then what happens? You get really upset that this is not what I told you to do. But they're trying to apparently obey you and listen to you and follow the instructions, but they're not really following instructions. So believing men or believing woman, what do they do? They put their desires aside. They put their wishes their likes their dislikes aside, when the command of Allah comes when the command of the messenger comes, and
whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear air. And remember Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when you set to the one on whom Allah bestowed favor, who is this Zaid or de la hora?
De they dropped a lot more and who Allah subhanaw taala bestowed a huge favor upon him how that when he was captured as a slave as a little boy, he was bought and he was given as a gift to her the Dalai Lama. And then Khadija, Atilla and when she married the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she gives a throw the lower on her as a gift to on who as a gift to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he eventually what happened? He set him free, and he declared him to be his son. And this was Wednesday, the lower in his family found him and they came requesting the profit or loss and whatever price you ask us, we'll give it to you please give us our
son back and the profits on the loss and I'm sad. That is the decision of saying if he wants to stay with me, he can stay with me and if you'd like to take him, he's your son. I don't want any money. But what happens he doesn't our new he chose the profits or losses and he chose slavery over freedom. And this is
Before Prophethood This is before Mohammed Salah Lawson received revelation Can you imagine the character of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that a child is choosing to be his slave than to go home as a prince? As a prince? No, he wants to remain with the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when this happened, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he took them by the hand. He went to the Kaaba, and he said, Oh, people know that from now on. Xavier is a bin Mohammed Zayed bin Mohammed. Right salatu salam, meaning that he is now my adopted son. He's like my son. And you know, the Sahaba. They said that we didn't even know that they that although on who was not actually Zayed bin Mohammed. We
didn't know that until these ayat were revealed, until verses were revealed in sort of a HAZOP declaring that your adopted sons are not your real sons. So many Sahaba thought that they that alone, it was actually the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because the prophets of Allah said have never treated him differently. He treated him like his own. So this is what Allah has favor on zadara, the lower on who and the favor of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on him also, because how often is it that we come across people who are so generous to us so kind and so loving, and so caring? That they treat us like their own? How often would you come across people like that rarely,
and then especially the great favor of Islam. So remember, when you said to him, keep your wife and fear Allah? Because Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had Zaid rather longer and who marry who Zina de la hora. And who was able to live on her, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And this was in an attempt to really show honor today that although I know that nobody think of him as a slave freed slave, no, he is of me. Look, his status is so high near me that he is now marrying a kurachi, a crazy woman, a woman of such high status. So this marriage happened. However, they couldn't get along with each other. And this is something that happens, it's something perfectly
fine. It happens that a wife, she does not like her husband, it's possible, or her husband just does not like his wife. It's possible. It doesn't mean that the both have to be evil, or one has to be evil. Because whenever the divorce happens, we always ask whose fault was it?
Whose fault was it? No, it's not necessary, that it was anybody's fault. It's quite possible that both of them are really good individuals, but they just don't get along with each other. And when is it that they find out maybe five years after marriage, maybe 10 years after marriage, it's possible. Maybe after two children, maybe after three children, it is possible. And it is possible for people to say for a couple to say, okay, we don't get along with each other. But still, we'll stay together for the sake of the children for the family. But sometimes even that becomes difficult. So we see over here, that they're not alone on who and zenodo dilemma and how they couldn't get along with
each other. And the prophets of Allah Sallam had a feeling. And that was that if they would divorce his wife, then Allah subhanaw taala is going to order the prophets that allows him to marry Xena. Why this was really to further clarify and emphasize the fact that an adopted son is not a real son. Because in Arabs, the problem was that an adopted son was considered like a real son. So just like the divorced wife of your real son, you cannot marry. Likewise, the divorced wife of your adopted son you cannot marry. Now the haka was revealed at the beginning of the surah. Right, that your adopted sons are not your real sons. But what happens many times people know what the Quran says,
What is in Islam, but are they willing to bring about that change in their lives? Are they? No, they're not. It's very hard. So likewise, this was very hard for that community. So Allah subhanaw taala wanted to clarify and emphasize this fact that look, your adopted sons are not your real sons and for that, the prophets Eliza and family has been chosen to demonstrate to you to demonstrate to you and the prophets of Allah was naturally afraid. He was afraid about the backlash about what the people were going to say. So unless as you said to him, keep your wife and fear Allah while you concealed within yourself that which Allah is to disclose. You tried to conceal it, but Allah was
going to expose it, he was going to establish it, he was going to bring this about, and so many times it happens that you're trying your best to conceal something, but it doesn't
Under main concealed, Allah opens it up, and you fear the people, while Allah has more right than you fear him. So Wednesday it had no longer any need for her meaning there was nothing to keep them married now, there was nothing to keep that marriage together anymore. We married her to you, meaning Zeno brother Lauren, who was married to who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and this nikka happened, where in the skies above, and this is something that Dana brought along, and I would boast about to all the women that look, Monica happened up there. Why was this done, in order that there not be upon the believers any discomfort concerning the wives of their adopted sons, when they no
longer have need of them? Meaning if the divorce happens, then the divorced wife of the adopted son, she's a complete non Muharram, right. And a man may marry her if, of course through the proper nikka And ever is the command of Allah accomplished? What's the lesson in this many lessons, but the main thing that we see here is that many times there are certain customs, certain traditions, certain practices, that are so deeply rooted in a society and which clearly contradict the Kitab and Sunnah the Quran and Sunnah. And to clarify them, it's not necessary to to speak against them or to speak about them, it's necessary that these customs these practices are abolished how through actions,
meaning through a practical demonstration, like for example, marriages, are they extremely, extremely extravagant. Now, they have become more and more extravagant. So those are the people who know the Quran and Sunnah, what happens to them? What happens to a girl who knows about the importance of hijab? What happens on her wedding day? Where does her job go? Where does it go? A woman who knows about five prayers, the importance of them what happens on her wedding day, all of these things are put aside. So somebody has to take a stand, somebody has to, and the one who has to take a stand who will set an example for other people, yes, they will hear a lot. They will bear a
lot of criticism, a lot of criticism, and yes, you are afraid of people. But what does Allah say? Allah has more right that you fear him. There is not to be upon the Prophet, any discomfort concerning that which Allah has imposed upon him. This is the established Way of Allah with those prophets who have passed on before And ever is the command of Allah a destiny decreed, meaning it's obligatory, it's unavoidable. The prophets of Allah, Who were the alladhina. You Bella owner is Allah tala? Well, Shona who well as Shona hadn't Illallah Waka fabula, he has ceiba. Allah praises those who convey the messages of Allah and fear Him and do not fear anyone but Allah and sufficient
is Allah as accountant. You see, the dark is the one who's calling people to Allah. He himself has to practically demonstrate the hokum of Allah, in order to show right from wrong. He doesn't just have to speak out against the wrong, he has to practically demonstrate this is right, and this is wrong. This is correct. And this is incorrect. And this is a very delicate situation, because on the one hand is the hokum of Allah. And on the other hand is the entire people. It's almost frightening that what are people going to say? What are they going to say? But remember, you have to do what Allah has ordered, because Allah is going to take herself Waka fabula, he has siba, we should be
afraid of the hisab that Allah is going to take not the hisab that people are going to take. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah, and last of the prophets, and ever is Allah of all things, knowing? What does this ayah show to us? After Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how many prophets are coming?
How many messengers are coming? None? And is the Quran clear on this very clear on this. So a person should not be deceived by anybody who claims to be a prophet, no matter what kind of justification and beautiful stories and dreams they come up with? No.
If anybody claims to be a prophet, after Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, are they a prophet? No, they are not a prophet. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the bunny is thrown in were ruled over by the prophets. When one prophet died, another succeeded him. But after me, there is no prophet. And there will be hula k lips, and there will be many in number mean there'll be many leaders who will come but there will be leaders, many leaders one after the other, but they're not going to be prophets. They're not going to receive divine inspiration. They're not going to be such a mess.
A man which receives what he know, nor are they going to be prophets and messengers, only people. But despite that people claimed Prophethood. And this happened even at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. There was a man was Solomon. All right, and he came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in the year of the delegations, which was after the conquest of Makkah, before the prophet SAW the loss and and passed away. And this man he came in, he said, You know what, oh Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you promised me that after you die, I will inherit you. Right meaning I will be your heir in leadership. All right. And if you do that, then you know what, I'll believe in you, and
we will join you. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to him, and he had with him a stick. And he said that if you were to ask me of this, even I wouldn't give it to you. I wouldn't give it to you. Why? Because this is not about me or you. It's about how it's about Huck. And what happened. This man was sinoma he claimed to be a prophet, and he was known as masala, Alka masala, the liar and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, there will be among my people 30 great liars 30 great liars, each of them asserting that he is ullas profit whereas I am the seal of the prophets after whom there will be no profit. So is the Quran clear is the Sunnah clear on this very clear. So if anyone claims to
be a prophet of a soul after Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam then who is he?
a liar. And remember 30 such liars the prophets of Allah Selim they will come 30 liars will come, many have come, and perhaps many are still yet to come. Remember that this is a matter of Akita. Right? This is a matter of arcada and our eternal life depends on this belief, rejecting a true prophet, rejecting a true prophet, is that a crime? Yes, it is. and confirming a liar. Even that is a crime near Allah. So we have to confirm the true prophet and reject the False Prophet. This is of the basic pillars of our religion. Yeah, you have levena amanu. All you who have believed with Corolla, Harvey Cohen kathira. Remember, Allah with my true remembrance was somebody who who will
collect on us Leila, and exalt Him morning and afternoon. Just look at it. How many times in the Quran we are advised to do? The Salah is right. And then what are the Corolla he then was there Karina la Catherine was Akira. And then we're told us we had you know, morning and evening. And then what Kabir who takbeer also do Takashi, and here again we are told, do the meaning don't do a little Vickers do a lot of the don't do a little he could do a lot of good. And here we need to analyze ourselves. Analyze yourself, How much time do you give to the vicar of Allah?
How much time make use of silent intervals? All right, make use of your fingers, develop a habit of doing recur on your finger so that every time you feel your finger, you remember to do that they could have Allah in it just like when you see a phone, even if you don't need to do anything. What do you do? What do you do? It's a natural reaction, right? They just pick it up and you unlock it. You check your text messages, even if it says no new messages, isn't it? Why it's a habit. You've done it so many times that now you don't even need to think about it. It just happens on autopilot. You open up your phone in order to send the message to somebody but you open up your phone and you
get lost in it. You put it away and you're like Oh, I forgot. Right? You forgot to do what you want to do. Why? Because you're so used to using your phone. This is how frequently we need to do that. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said highroller Amelie and to further cadonia Well, he said no karate bondman Victrola the best deed is that you depart from this world, while your tongue is moist with the vicar of Allah. You see, when a person is close to death, mouth becomes really dry.
Just like when a person is fasting, the mouth is dry. Right? So who is it that can really do thicker have a lot that time? Who is it the can naturally do the Kabbalah at that time? The person who keeps his tongue busy in the vicar of Allah the rest of the time, sometimes really while lying down picture yourself, okay, what if I'm near my death and then do the cut at that time? Do they
make the cut when you're lying in your bed, make the because this is very, very important. Allah is telling us oath por la vicon Cafiero wa sahbihi wa
bukata well Athena, I shall go on has said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say very often Subhan Allah He will be hemmed he a stuff that Allahu Allah to boo LA. Perfect is Allah and with his praise, meaning he's deserving of all praise, and I seek forgiveness of Allah and I repent to him, the prophets of Allah and I'm also said, Whoever prays budget in congregation then sits remembering Allah until the sun has risen. And then he prays to God, then for him is a reward like that of a hedge and or model like that of a hedge and
even armadillo earn who said that once we were performing the prayer with the prophets of Allah send them and among the people, a man said Allahu Akbar, Kavita, well, hamdu Lillahi kathira was Subhana Allah He bucatini La Silla morning and evening these words, booklets and wellsley that were there. And after the solid the prophets of Allah said Who said that? Who said that? No, imagine that's a hobby was a little worried. Did I say something rather than eventually he said, I said that he had a suit Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, It surprised me. What you said, surprised me. It amazed me for the doors of heaven were open for it. Even armadillo Warren who said that I have not
abandoned these words, since I heard the profits of the laws that I'm saying this, that every time I pray, I also say this. Allahu Akbar Kabira. This is why we can actually say this they could as Dora is different meaning when you say Allahu Akbar, when you start your prayer, you can begin with this Allahu Akbar Kabira when somebody like Akira was to Panama, he broke rotten. We're asleep.
