And why isn't it that you would do that? much they could, because it is he who confers blessing upon you and his angels asked him to do so that he may bring you out from darkness into light. Another is he to the believers, merciful, their greeting the day they meet him will be peace and he has prepared for them a noble reward. Yeah, you hanabi Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Orissa lakisha hidden one mobis sheelane one of the law indeed we have sent you as a witness and to bring up good news and as a warner, whether in either law he even he and one who invites to Allah by his permission was the urologia money law and and illuminating lamp and give good tidings to the
believers that they will have from Allah great bounty, and do not obey the disbelievers who are the disbelievers, those who don't even believe in you, who don't even believe in the Koran, those who come and attack you from the front. Don't listen to them. And also do not listen to the hypocrites don't obey them, who are the hypocrites, those who are apparently with you, but they attack you from behind you. Do not listen to them, what are other home and leave their other, this means do not harm them. But the stronger meaning over here is that do not care leave meaning do not care about the hurt that they caused you. Meaning ignore what they say to you, ignore what they do to you, and rely
upon Allah. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs, you see a believer, Who is he, a believer is the one who surrenders who submitted to the commands of Allah. And who is it that opposes the commands of Allah, verbally and physically, who either that person is a disbeliever, or he is a hypocrite? You understand? Because a believer you will not oppose the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. A person who criticizes who objects at the commands of Allah who opposes them, either verbally or physically, then he is not in the ranks of the believers. He's not there. Or you have believed when you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched the
meaning before the marriage was consummated, then there is not for you any waiting period to count concerning them, meaning them for that woman, there's no word that so provide for them and give them a gracious release. And now in the following Ayah, the marriages of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are mentioned. Remember that the marriages of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were very unique. They were all very different. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was married to her digital the lower end. And as long as he was married to her, he married no other woman, no other woman. And what happened after the death of her digital below her on her on the profits of the lawlessness children
were young. And the responsibility was huge. He was advised to marry soda or the loved one. And he married her, and then the profits or the loss and I'm also married our Isha little dilemma and after that, and then we learned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did his alma to Medina, what happened? There was battle after battle. And there were women in that society who are now left without families. And you see, the prophets of Allah said when he when he did, he did up to Medina, he didn't just say, oh, we're supposed to be helping each other. No, he established a bond of brotherhood between the Sahaba brotherhood between the Sahaba. So what about the women now who are
left alone with their children who's going to support them? Who's going to take care of them? We learned that have settled a lot more on her. Her husband died in one of the early battles. And so her father or mother, although I knew he was worried about his young daughter, he went to Abu Bakar he went to the lower end when he said, Why didn't you marry my daughter? Because it responded lower and his wife had passed away recently, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu said, Why don't you marry? He said, Well think about it. He went to Abu Bakar Alomar, he said I'll think about it. Now you see how are we going to learn who is taking the proposal? Can you marry my daughter? Can you
marry my daughter, I'm worried about her. She's deeply grieved, who married her. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam married her own Salama, her husband was killed also in one of the early battles, who married her the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married her. And this was basically setting an example that look just because a woman is widowed. She was previously married doesn't mean that she has to be treated like an outcast. And sadly, this is something that has become very common in our culture is a woman a girl who never made previously perhaps he was engaged once upon a time and now she's maybe 26 what happens people say old? Oh, really? How she old? I mean, girls were 24 years.
Age, what happens to them? They're concerned, nobody's gonna marry me, nobody's gonna marry me. I'm getting older and older, year after year.
And what happens to girls who are divorced or who are widowed? What about them? What about them? You see, marriage is not just about, you know, sexual desire, it's about intimacy. It's about having a close companion. It's about finding comfort and closeness because human beings, we need each other, we need that close bond, we need it. So we seek the profits or loss and married all of these women. Why? To set an example, that these women, they are part of our society, they must not be treated as an outcast, and look at the value they can bring, look at the value that Osama brought that sold or deliver on her brought that all of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam brought. And then we
learned that later on, when the profits or losses are married, for example, due to the lower and hassle fee, or the lower and these were women who were brought in as captives, but once the profits or losses are married them what happened to all of their relatives, the Sahaba they set them free, that how can we keep the in laws of the province of law sort of as our servants? No way, not at all. So you see how much benefit they brought. And when these women because you ended up on her for example, she was a princess. All right. And she was given the choice if you wish you can marry. Right. And if you wish, you can remain as you are. It's up to you. She chose to be the wife of the
Prophet civilize them she was given the offer, she chose that position. And when she was married to the prophets of Lawson, and what happened, her entire tribe converted because of her entire tribe converted on Habiba de la Mancha. She was the daughter of Abu sufian. You can imagine when Josephine's daughter is in the house of the prophets of Allah, and would you think he would have enmity for the loss of the loss of them? No.
All right, and remember that out of all the leaders of Makkah, Abu Sufyan was like the only one main leader that remained, Abu Jamal had died, Abu lahab had died. All these big big figureheads finished, Abu Sufyan was like the main leader left. So his daughter in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what does it mean? So anyway, this is not really the time to go into the marriages of the prophets of Allah seven. But the point is that just as wide as the profits of the laws were different, right? The province of Lawson's marriage was also a different case completely. We cannot look at it as, like, for example, an ordinary man marrying so many women, this was for a
reason, all of these marriages were for a reason. So all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, indeed we have made lawful to you, your wives, to whom you have given their due compensation in their mouth, even the profit or loss of them had to give them a hug. So what do you think about other men, they don't need to give Maha they do. And those your right hands possess, from what Allah has returned to you of captives and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts, who immigrated with you, and a believing woman if she gives herself to the Prophet sallallahu
sallam. If the Prophet wishes to marry her, this is only for you, excluding the other believers, so no person can say Oh, since I'm the leader, also, I can have 10 wives. I mean, it's amazing how some people in the name of Dean and these are Muslims, by the way, in the name of Dean, they will have 1520 wives, these are true, this is true 1520 wives, even the prophets and allows them to not have that many when he was ordered by Allah. What do you think of yourself? This is only for you excluding the other believers, we certainly know what we have made obligatory upon them concerning their wives, and those their right hands possess but this is for you, in order that they will be
upon you know, discomfort and ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So why was this exception made for the prophets of Allah send them in fact, it was not an exception, it was a command for him. Why? Because he had a very different role to play. He was the one who was sent to establish the deen you are profit may put aside whom you will love them or take to yourself whom you will, meaning for an average for a regular man, he must must be fair with all of his wives, correct? Right? But the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was given the choice that if you are not 100% fair with your wives, it's okay for you. Why? Because he didn't marry them for his own personal reasons. He married them
in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and he had a very big responsibility on his shoulders, and any that you desire of those wives, for whom you have temporarily separated, there is no blame upon you in returning her that is more suitable that they should be contented and not grieve, and that they should be satisfied with what you have given them, all of them and Allah knows what is in your heart.
And ever is Allah knowing and for burying, you see the profits of a lot of solemn and amazing servants he was, even though he was given this choice, was he unfair with his wives, never. He was not unfair to his wives, solid soul, that in the last days of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his life, what happened? Still he was going house to house every day. Why? To spend time with each wife give her her day. All right, the time that she deserves the attention that she deserves, and the prophets of Allah. And by the way, when he would go to his wives to the house, he wouldn't just sit there and be served. But today, I'm going to be I'm going to enjoy in this house and tomorrow and
another house No. eyeshadows Albarn has said that the prophets of Allah seldom used to be in the service of his family, meaning he would go and serve his family, he would go and help them do the work of the house for the family help them out. So imagine in the last days of the profits, or the lessons live, he was going from house to house. And then eventually, when his condition became really severe, he asked them, Do you allow me to just stay in the house of Arusha until I get better, and they allowed, I mean, this shows that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was truly a very obedient servant of Allah, who did not forget to do your son, who did not forget your son, not
lawful for you are any additional women after this, meaning every wife, the profits or loss in a married was in obedience to Allah. And now Other than that, no more. Nor is it for you to exchange them for other wives, even if their beauty were to please you. I mean, the prophets of Allah, Allah, his heart was pure, right. But here, what is made clear is that these are the wives that are chosen for you, you cannot replace them, you cannot leave them, you cannot take anyone in their place, except what your right hand possesses, and never is a law over all things and observer, or you who have believed, do not enter the houses of the Prophet, except when you're permitted for a meal
without awaiting its readiness, meaning don't go to his house, unless you are invited to come. And when you're invited to eat, don't go so early, waiting to be served. And this is extreme disrespect that a person goes to another's house without invitation at a time when that person has to eat. Right? For example, half an hour before if thought, why would you go to somebody else? Why, like, seriously, unless you've been invited? Yeah, that makes sense. But otherwise, it does not make sense at all. But when you are invited, then enter. And when you have eaten, disperse, without seeking to remain for conversation, I'd like this. What happens generally, okay, now we've eaten now let's sip
on our tea. And yes, we know you have the kitchen Aftermath to take care of, but we don't care about that, because we would like to socialize with you and talk to you. Right? And what happens, people leave after several hours, and then the host by them.
What happens to them? I mean, the poor women, especially the poor women, especially the children are exhausted, exhausted, it's way past their bedtime. And the poor woman has to stand in the kitchen, clear up everything. Right? This is one, this is a token from Allah subhanaw taala, that once you have eaten, then leave, don't stay for conversation, do not stay. Indeed, that behavior was troubling the Prophet. And it's troubling to any host. And he is shy of dismissing you, he feels shy to tell you when or you can evoke. Just like any any good host wouldn't say that. But Allah is not shy of the truth. And when you ask his wives for something, ask them from behind the partition.
Meaning when you have to go and ask the whys of the profits of Lausanne about something, and the profits or losses is not there, then you don't just go inside the house? No, how is it that you communicate with the wives the profits of the Law Center, from behind a partition that is pure for you, that is pure for your hearts and their hearts? underlying this, this is the reason for hijab, what is the reason for hijab, it is pure for the men and pure for women. And it is not conceivable for you to harm the Messenger of Allah, or to marry his wives after him ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of Allah and enormity. And so the lower end who said that I used to serve the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam and I used to go in his house without permission. Because remember, he was only 10 years old when he was brought right. And he was like part of the family so he would go in and out without permission. One day I came and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Come out and the Abuja stop where you are. Oh, my son, who come came out
You so now do not come in without permission. Meaning when you have to come into my house, right, then you have to come in how after permission has been granted to you. And we also learn over here that so how about are instructed when you have to talk to the wise of the prophets of Allah to them? How should you do that? From behind a curtain meaning don't go inside the house, which means that a man and woman are non Marham to each other should they be alone? No, they should not be alone. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said beware of entering upon the women, meaning when they're alone in their houses, beware of entering upon them. A man from the unsought said he had a suit of law. What
about the hammer, meaning the brother of her husband or his nephew, right? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam replied, the Hmong is the mote he is death. Meaning if he starts to come to his brother's house, while he's not there spending time with his wife, then what's gonna happen? Death to that marriage, death to that marriage, it will happen. You see chiffon runs in the blood of men, doesn't he? And I mean men as in people, not only men, and exclusion to women, no, shave pawn is busy actively trying all all the time in order to lead a person astray. So just think about it, what runs in your blood doesn't reach your heart? It does, right. So shaitan, do you think he's gonna let your
heart stay clean? Is he he's not going to let your heart stay clean? So what do you have to do close that window that leads to how long close that door that leads to how close it seal it. And for that reason, hijaab has been taught over here, the profits and losses that have once stood on the pulpit on the minbar. And he said, after this day, no man should enter the house of another person in his absence. Meaning go in his house while he's not there and talk to his wife, but only when he is accompanied by one person or two persons, meaning alone, he should not go to three, okay, that's fine. This doesn't mean that three men should go no meaning that there should be somebody with him,
or there should be somebody with her. Now, if this is needed for the purity of the hearts of the Sahaba, as well as mental health, and what about the rest of us? How can we think that it is correct to sit with a non Muslim man and joke with him? casually converse with every passing man, and talk to every passing man as he is going? No, this is not appropriate. We have to be very careful. Very careful, because remember that one casual comment conversation, it can lead to a lot of fitna. So over here, doors have been closed doors have been closed, that lead to wrongdoing. All right. And many times it happens that, that women say oh, I'm married, or man says oh, I'm married, even then,
you still have a heart and chiffon is still in your blood. Right? So it doesn't matter what your marital status is, what your age is, what place you are in when it comes to a man, non Muhammed, we have to be careful whether you reveal a thing or conceal it. Indeed, Allah is Ever of all things knowing. There is no blame upon women concerning their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their brothers, sons or their sisters, sons, or their women are those that their right hands possess meaning they can come in their houses and fear Allah Indeed, Allah is Ever over all things witness. So the purpose of hijab is what the horror of the eyes and the horror of the heart in the law how
Allah ekata who, you saloon Allah Nabhi Yeah, you holla Dina amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam noticed Lima Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet and his angels asked him to do so. So all you have believed, ask Allah to confer blessings upon him and ask Allah to grant him peace. Now, because yes, the vicar of Allah we have to do in addition to that, we also have to send Sadat and Salam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, He will send salaat on me 10 times, then 10 blessings shall descend on him, and 10 sins will be erased for him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said he before whom I mentioned and he does not send for that upon me, then
he has strayed from the path to paradise.
He has strayed from the path to paradise who, the one who hears Muhammad Rasulullah Nabila and he doesn't say sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
He has strayed from the right way, or neither the lower and who reported at the profits of the laws that have said the stingy person is the one before whom I am mentioned, and he does not sound solid upon me the profits or losses on him
said jabril came to me and gave me the good news that our law says that whoever sends out upon you, I will bestow My blessings upon him. And whoever sends Salaam upon you, I shall grant him safety. So on this I prostrated to Allah in gratitude,
the prophets of the law cinnamal, to set their angels that roam around the earth and convey the salams of my own mattamy meaning he doesn't hear them directly, they're conveyed to him. So right now, everybody, take a moment, and say it silently yourself with all your heart.
Indeed, those who abuse Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and prepared for them a humiliating punishment, and those who harm believing men and believing women for something other than what they have earned. Meaning while the believers are innocent, they have certainly born upon themselves a slander and manifesting, it's a crime to hurt to harass believers, it's a crime. It's a punishable sin. We learn that once the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he narrated a hadith in which severe punishment is described that how people will be taken from one punishment to another to another punishment, and various forms of punishment. And they will
be asked that, are you being hurt because of this? Does it hurt you? And they will say yes. And they will be told this is because you used to hurt the believers, hurting the believers, harassing them is something that should be avoided at every cost. Yeah, you're gonna be all profit only as well as you can say to your wives, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers. So they're hookworm is for who just the wives the prophets of Allah know who, all believing women to bring down over themselves part of their outer garments, meaning the outer garment meaning the cloth that is worn as a hijab as a shawl, as a jilbab it should be used for what that they should bring it
down over themselves, meaning they should take a part of it and bring it down. Why meaning wearing a hijab or a shawl alone is not sufficient, women must draw part of it, part of it on that portion which is exposed which is uncovered. And what is that part which is still exposed after wearing the hijab,
the chest, the chest, we learned about instead of the nose, when you wear the hijab, what is still exposed
face, right. So either they should draw it down from above, meaning at least a little bit. Or they should take it from the side, and at least put something on there on the part which is exposed, meaning they should not leave it bare and fully exposed. fully exposed, they should not leave it fully exposed.
This doesn't mean that a woman always all the time has to cover get on like this, but only a portion of it at least, depending on the situation. I mean, if you're standing in front of a man at least take a little bit and cover not that the full face is being highlighted being shown. This is something that's not appropriate. Because when the whole entire face is being exposed, it's been Think about it, it's more highlighted, right. So they should not expose it fully, at least part of it, they should cover that is more suitable that they will be known norm recognized as believing women as chaste and modest women who are not free for pleasure. And they will not be abused and ever
is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. You see covering the face even partially, even partially, even a little bit, even if you take a little bit of your hijab and put it like this, you know where you cover your chin. Alright, and you make sure that the sides like for example, your cheeks are covered, or that you're standing in front of a man and as you go, you take a little bit and you cover even a little bit. What message does it give? I'm not for you not even a little bit.
I'm not I'm not for you not even a little bit. It's like literally sending a message that there's a barrier between me and you. Right, this is what what the message of the hijab is or metal deliver on who he used to
request the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that all types of people come to your house. So you should tell your wives to cover and Allah subhana wa tada revealed these I add in confirmation of a moral dilemma on his wish. Right? That Yes, because really, when you go outside especially there's all types of men, isn't it? All types of men you don't know who's looking at you? How may Allah protect you from hearing their thoughts? Really, may Allah protect you from hearing their thoughts, but men their thoughts can be very, very vulgar. They don't always say it, but it's going on in their heads. It's going on. So especially when the
faces completely exposed here and this is something that is inviting trouble. So depending on where a woman is who she's in front of at least a portion she should cover because otherwise you would be clearly contradicting the hokum of Allah. If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease and those who spread rumors in Medina do not cease, we will surely incite you against them, then they will not remain your neighbors they're in except for a little a cursed wherever they are found being seized and massacred completely. This is the established Way of Allah with those who passed on before and you will not find in the way of Allah any change here the hypocrites they're being warned
troublemakers in society they're being warned that you better correct yourself or else severe punishment is coming upon you. People ask you concerning the hour say knowledge of it is only with Allah. And let me make you perceive perhaps the hour is near. Indeed, Allah has cursed the disbelievers and prepared for them ablaze, abiding there in forever, they will not find a protector or a helper, the day their faces will be turned about in the fire. They will say how we wish we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the messenger. And they will say Our Lord, indeed we obeyed our masters and our dignitaries. We obeyed our leaders, and they led us astray from the right way our Lord give them
double the punishment and curse them with a great curse. Only you will have believed be not like those who abused musante Salah How do they abuse Masada Salah by disobeying musasa musasa tell them slaughter a cow, they would say what kind of a cow one question after the other. And the only sometimes the hokum is clear in the Quran. But what happens? Yeah, but what does this mean? And what does that mean? And And what about this? And what about that one question after the other splitting hairs splitting hairs literally? Isn't it obvious? Like for example, in this eye over here that we learned that the women should draw part of their hijab and conceal what is exposed? It's obvious,
right? And it's clear at the beginning of the hour, this is for all women. Right? And I mean, at least in some situations, where for example, there's makeup on the face, right? That a woman is wearing nice lipstick, her face and looking so beautiful. She's going outside of any. And you might say nobody looks here, really? Nobody looks over here. You think there's no men in this world? In Canada? in the society that we live? Of course, there are men, there are men. Haven't you seen that video of that woman walking through downtown, you know, for 10 hours or something? And how many times she's arrest? How many times volger comments, and she's not even looking at anybody. She's not
even talking to anybody. And she's dressed. I mean, relatively. I mean, simple, right? relatively simple. But look at the comments that she receives. Some men are men, they're going to be men, we have to protect ourselves.
So all believers do not be like those who abused Musa then Allah cleared him of what they said. And he in the sight of Allah was distinguished or you have believed fear Allah and speak words of appropriate justice. I shut up the lower on her said, Even I unless and until Allah bestows his pardon, meaning the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Even I unless and until Allah bestows his pardon and mercy on me, I am not forgiven, meaning I am not worthy of Allah's mercy. It's only a last favor on a believer on a servant that he is admitted into paradise. So how careful we have to be about our speech, that even the profits or loss of them have to be so careful. What about us owner Conan said
either all believers, he will then amend for you your deeds and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly attained a great attainment. Indeed, we offered the trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it, and feared it. But men undertook to bear it. Indeed he was unjust and ignorant. It was so that Allah May punish the hypocrite men and the hypocrite women and the men and women who associate others with him, and that Allah may accept repentance from the believing men and believing women and never is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So this Amana is on us which Amana which trust which responsibility that on learning
act or they surrender
