Juz’ 26: Al-Ahqaf – Az-Zariyat 1-30
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Yeah, you have Latina Amano la Toka demo Albania de la hora su li what the law in a la Sameer and Eileen, In the Name of Allah, the entirety Merciful, the Especially Merciful or you have believed, do not put yourselves before Allah and His messenger. Don't try to get ahead of Allah and His messenger. Do not put your own statement before the statement of Allah and His messenger. When the command of Allah comes, then don't put your will your wish your feelings before the command of Allah. When the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes, then again, don't put your wishes above the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you should
not think contrary to what Allah and His Messenger have said, you should not feel otherwise rather you should say samina. What Aparna what the law fear Allah Indeed Allah is hearing and knowing. Yeah, are you Hello, Dina Amano. Latifah sweater confocal Sultan Nabi, oh, you have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet. This was in his lifetime. And today, wherever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has mentioned, where his words are being mentioned, his life is being studied, then we have to show respect in that gathering also, where he is mentioned, we must not yell over there. We must not do anything that's disrespectful over there. Likewise, when a person
goes to the masjid of the prophets, that a lot is alone, again, he must observe respect over there and not do anything that may be disrespectful. And part of being disrespectful is raising the voice. We learned that once. Say Ebony, as he said that I was standing in the masjid and somebody threw, you know, small pebbles at me as if they were trying to get my attention. So I looked, and I found that it was called follow the law. So I went to him. And he said to me, fetch those two men for me. So I went and I got those two men. And when they came remodeling, when I asked them, who are you? Where have you come from? They said, We are from afar. If he said, if you were from this city of
Medina, I would have punished you because you are raising your voice in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You are making noise in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how could you do that? I'm only sparing you. Because perhaps you are unfamiliar with this etiquette, because you are not a local, you are from a thought if what is this show to us? the understanding of the Sahaba was that even after the death of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in his Masjid, when people go there, they should keep their voices low. And this is something that we must remember because when we do go to the mercy of the prophets of Allah Islam and when we want to go to the
Rhoda, what happens especially women, there's a stampede there is a stampede noise disrespect the way each other's hijabs are being pulled, and women are being pushed and shoved. Honey, it's extreme disrespect, any Masjid, it is not right, especially the mustard of Rasulullah sallallahu ala, it's not acceptable at all. And then we see over here, that part of respect is to lower the voice. And earlier we were told that when the prophets have a lot of silence, his command comes when Alice's command comes in. Don't put yourself
Before that, above that, keep yourself behind. We learned that once in Milan, even her saying, he mentioned a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the company of some people. And what was that Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has said that a higher Hiram kulu, that modesty is all good, higher is all good. So one person who was sitting there who heard that statement, he said, but we have read in some books, that one kind of modesty is good. And there is another kind of modesty which is from weakness, and that is not good. So in Roman Hussein, he got so angry over there. He said, I am telling you about what the prophets of Islam has said, and you are telling me about what
you have read somewhere else. Meaning when the statement of the profits or loss and incomes, you don't try to counter that, by the statement of any other. You don't do that this is disrespect.
Do not be loud to him in speech, like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless, while you perceive not how frightening This is that a person goes to Allah and finds his record empty, every good deed cancelled out, his efforts canceled, everything ruined. Why? Because of lack of other because of lack of respect. You see, many, many times we don't know how to observe the proper respect, we are performing the Salah, but so disrespectfully, we were reciting the Quran, but so disrespectfully we're seeing are the hours but without any respect. Other is so important other is what beautifies the deed that you have performed. It beautifies it, you see if somebody
brings you your favorite drink, all right, your favorite cup of coffee, or whatever it is, but they come and they just throw it in front of you. They just put it in front of you. So part of it even splashes on you. Do you like that?
You don't even look at it.
You pretend as if you didn't even notice it? Why? Because it was so insulting. Why was it insulting? Because they served you the T but they didn't observe any other. So then what do we think about our deeds if we perform them, without any respect for Allah without help Buddha has Shia without other, then how will that deed be granted reward. We need to be very careful about this. Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah. They're the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness. For them his forgiveness and great reward that he has alleged check their hearts and in their hearts Allah has found righteousness who those who observe Indeed, those who call you or
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from behind the chambers meaning from outside of your houses from outside of your rooms. Most of them do not use reason. Many outsiders when they would come into Medina and they would be looking for the profits of the Law Center. They would be walking outside the house and they would say Mohammed, Mohammed Marlena, as if they were ordering somebody that Oh, Mohammed come out we're waiting for you. He This is so disrespectful. In the Quran, not even once does Allah address the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying Yeah, Mohammed, not even once you will find your au and NaVi. Yeah, you have a soul. Why? Because Allah is teaching us that when you address
your leader, you don't address him by name. You don't say Oh, Muhammad, no, you have to observe respect over there. And if a person does not do so, then it shows that they don't have reason. And if they have been patient until you could come out to them, it would have been better for them. Why were they calling you in the first place? They should have waited for you. But Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Yeah, you have Medina Amano, oh, you have believed is there comes to you a disobedient one with information, then investigate? lest you harm people out of ignorance and become over what you have done regretful meaning before taking any action, find out who you're dealing with. We
learned from the example of remoto guillo article that when he called those two men, he didn't punish them immediately. He asked them, who are you? Where have you come from? that perhaps there's a reason why you are not observing the proper etiquette that maybe you don't know. So he didn't take any action against them? You understand? So this shows to us that anytime we hear some information, before taking action, what is necessary, investigate, otherwise, what will happen, you will be regretful later on. Doesn't it happen so many times in our lives? That we ask who put the food outside? And we get upset with the children and say I didn't do it. I didn't do it. And then you
remember, Oh, you did it. Right. Who left the keys outside the door? Who did it? I didn't. I didn't. Oh, yeah, I did it. Who left the windows of the car open. I did it. We blame other people. We get angry and then later on, we realize it was us. So don't embarrass yourself and don't cause harm to others. And know that among you as the Messenger of Allah, if you were to obey you in much of the matter, you would be in difficulty but Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it
pleasing in your hearts. May Allah grant us the same. That faith he man is beautiful in our hearts. We like it. And it beautifies us Aloma Xena busy, nuttin, amen. And has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience. How fortunate is this person who loves good, and who hates disbelief who hates defiance and disobedience. Those are the rightly guided, it is as bounty from Allah and favor, and Allah is Knowing and wise. And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah. And if it returns, then
make settlement between them injustice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. You see, when the hearts of Muslims are cut off from each other, then what is it that we have to do? Let them be, it's their own problem. I should mind my own business, know, when Muslims are fighting with each other in front of us that we cannot let them keep fighting. We have to do something to mend their relationship. We cannot let them stay like that. Don't think let them deal with it. It's their own problem. No, it's everybody's problem. We cannot be silent observers. Because you see right now it's a conflict between two people. And gradually, those two people will find their supporters. And
then this conflict will no longer remain as a conflict between two people. What happens when a husband and wife are fighting, fighting constantly, eventually, what happens to the children take sides? Yes, they do take sides, and the family is now divided. It's split. We see this. So when you see people fighting with each other, whether it is at home, even children, sometimes children are fighting and parents say, well let them fight. Let them fight, they learn to be stronger. No, okay. You let them solve their problems, but don't let them keep beating each other up. No, you have to let them disagree. And let them solve their own problems, but under your observation to ensure there
is no oppression and injustice over there. Because this is not fair.
This is not fair. We cannot let injustice happen before our eyes to friends, even when they have a fight with each other. Don't let them remain like that. Oh, it's their problem. They're not talking to each other. No, you have to do something about it. Because soon it will become everybody's problem. So we can never be silent observers. Because mutual facade it leads to much greater facade in the Malmo manana, aka the believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers and fear Allah that you may receive mercy. Don't let believers you know cut up from one another and sit away from each other with hatred in their hearts and bad feelings. No, do something to solve
those problems. The prophets of the law said I'm said the believer is the believers mirror. And the believer is the believers brother who guards him against loss and protects him when he's absent. You see all believers, all of us were elated by a man regardless of our color, our race, our culture, our background, right regardless of that, what is it that unites us it is even so we should never let these disputes grow? Because those who solve disputes What do they earn? What the hola hola hola, como como? They receive Allah's mercy. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, shall I not tell you about a charity which Allah loves to be given? Allah loves that that kind of charity should be
given? Should I not tell you about that? Would you like to know? What kind of charity is it that Allah loves? That when a person gives it? Allah loves the fact that it is being given with charity? Is that
that you call Sunday between people? And is it a charity? Oh, yes, it's a charity. Because just like you have to give a huge amount of money away. And that's difficult, trying to solve a dispute between two people.
It's not easy. It sucks you in, isn't it? And you have to try so hard to keep your intention? Correct. You have to try so hard to remain fair and not be biased and remain neutral. It's really an act of charity.
Yeah, you have Latina armano Oh, you have believed? Let not have people ridiculed and other people, perhaps they may be better than them, nor let women ridicule other women, perhaps they may be better than them. Why is it not said that men should not make fun of women and women should not make fun of men.
Okay, generally women make fun of women. But this shows to us that there is no such concept in our religion, that men and women sit with one another non Muharram and then men are making fun of women and the women are making fun of men in casual conversation. But what has happened today
We have crossed all of these limits. And we say, oh, we're friends, and in casual conversation, even making fun of each other, making fun of each other is something that's not allowed any way. We should not do that. Who is it that a person makes fun of those who he thinks lesser than himself? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said it is sufficient evil for a man to look down on his Muslim brother. This is sufficient evil for him. This is sufficient to show that yes, this person is bad. What? That he looks down on his Muslim brother. Oh, what a pathetic choice. What a bad choice. No, this is something that does not befit a believer, and he looks down on another he himself is
humiliated in the sight of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, all things of a Muslim are inviolable for his brother in faith, his blood, his wealth and his honor. So remember, the honor of other people is sacred. We cannot attack the honor of other people by making fun of them in front of them or behind them, and then Do not insult one another. Do not do that. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If a man abuses and shames you for something which he finds in you, then do not shame him for something which you find in Him, He will bear the evil consequences for it. Meaning do not retaliate by insulting back. Generally what happens if we are insulted, we insult double in return?
What does the prophets have the last term said do not do that do not retaliate by insulting back, Allah will reward you for your patience, and for the one who started for him as the sin. This does not mean that a person cannot have fun. People cannot joke with each other. But you have to be very careful and joking with each other when having fun, because it's very, very easy to cross the limit and overstep and hurt other people's feelings, causing them embarrassment and humiliation. We should be sensitive towards the feelings of one another. insulting one another is not correct. Anyway, it is not right to insult another person for his appearance, for his job for his accent for his family
background, etc. This is all generally ignorance, and do not call each other by offensive nicknames. Do not do that. wretched is the name of disobedience after one's faith and whoever does not repent, then it is those who are the wrongdoers or you have believed avoid much negative assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. You see assumption leads to many evils, many evils. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he looked at the Kaaba, and he said more haben bigger that you're amazing Oh Carver, ma Lama, you're so honorable. So honorable is your home on your sacred as you're so sacred. And the believer is more sacred near Allah than you. Your sacredness, it's a one type. But for the
believer, there are many things that are sacred, his blood, his wealth, and that none should think evil about him. None should entertain a oneness. So about another believer. This is part of respecting other believers are below he said that the person who has had something stolen from him, continues to be suspicious until he is worse than the thief.
You understand, he becomes worse than the thief, that the thief he stole one object, but the person whose object was stolen, he becomes suspicious of so many people, blaming 510 people, that what happens at the end he is more sinful than the thief.
One is something very, very evil, repel negative thoughts about other people never assume evil thoughts about other people. Always give them the benefit of the doubt and do not spy or backbiting each other. Do not spy or backed by each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother went dead? You would detest it and fear Allah. Indeed Allah is Accepting of repentance and merciful. You see, Allah has obligated fasting. Why? So that we are cured of spiritual diseases, and Bardo spiritual diseases? liba ilieva is like eating the flesh of your dead brother. In fasting. We don't even eat halal meat, then how can we allow ourselves to eat halal meat? What happens in
fasting when Palau food is brought to you good food is brought to you What do you say? I am fasting. So likewise, when how long meat is brought to you when you're fasting? Somebody wants to back bite with you. What is it that the prophets of the laws that I'm taught us in the room saw him? I am a person who is fasting, I cannot do this. So fasting is training. Leave these bad habits. Be careful about what you're saying. You see, we take the matter of Libra very likely and we don't consider Libra to be Libra. What is LIBOR? What is backbiting? They grew up micro saying something about your brother. What he does not like
something that he would dislike he doesn't want that. You should
say that about him. But many times we say Oh, but it's right. Oh, but it's true. Yes, it is true. If it wasn't true, that will be worse, you will be slandering them falsely accusing them that would be a greater sin.
The thing is that when a person has greater things to worry about in his life than what happens, he doesn't take interest in the mistakes of other people. He's focused on his own mistakes, so that he can improve himself so that he can achieve greater results. We learned that once the Sahaba they said about a man in the company of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that if this man is not fair, he doesn't eat. And if he is not given a ride, he will not even sit on a write, meaning he only does things when you tell him he has to be spoon fed.
He has to be spoon fed. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, You have done backbiting of him, the Sahaba said, but we have only spoken what is in him. He's like that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, It is enough for something to believe that you state what you find in the other. You state what you find in the other? Yes, it isn't the other. Why do you need to say why do you need to talk about it? Isn't it understood? Isn't it well known? Isn't it well known. the faults of people are they're not well known, everybody knows why do you have to talk about them then? So here, we are forbidden from one we are forbidden from the Justice also what is the Justice spying, because you
see, first a person assumes a negative assumption. And then he looks for proof to get assurance. So he looks at other people's phones, their bags, their computers, staring at other people's screens, looking at their email, the profits or loss of them said if you search for the faults of people, you will corrupt them or you will nearly corrupt them,
you will corrupt them the Justice spying on each other. This is something that corrupts relationships. And you see any relationship what is the basis of a good relationship trust and where there is no trust, then that relationship cannot survive long, whether it is friendship or it is marriage or it is with in laws or it is with coworkers, siblings, parents and children, whatever it is, trust is something essential otherwise people will get fed up. You have to show trust in order to receive trust, show trust to other people, I trust you, I believe you, you can do this.
And I know you are honest, showing trust and you will receive trust also, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that if somebody listens to the talk of some people who do not like him to listen, or they run away from him, then molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection. Meaning of a conversation is being held in privacy. People don't want you to hear it. And for that reason, they have closed the door. For that reason they stepped outside. And if you go closer to the door, and if you also go outside in order to listen to what they're saying. This is a major sin, the prophets of the loss that I'm setting molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of
Resurrection is hiding from authentic Hades. So never ever tried to listen to the conversations of other people. Whether it is in a phone, phone conversation, or it is in a bedroom, or it is anyway private conversation respected. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, All community of people who have believed by their tongues and believe has not yet entered their hearts, do not backbite Muslims, and do not search for their faults. For if anyone searches for their faults, Allah will search for his fault. And if Allah searches for the fault of anyone, he will disgrace him in his own house. So we see that someone who accuses others, that he himself gets accused, you see any family that is
broken, any team that is dysfunctional, these problems are found in them. What are these problems? lever, one, the Justice lems all of these problems are found in them. Any dysfunctional thing, any group of people that are not united, whose hearts are this united family that is broken, whatever. Otherwise, it's not possible that it would be ruined. Because the home in which there is respect, people don't fight there. They have differences but with respect, a group of people working together a team that respects each other members respect one another. Then again, there is trust there, people have confidence, and they're together. So it is essential that we begin respecting each
other. And part of respect is also to show respect to children. The profits or loss of them said he who has six qualities when he dies, then Allah guarantees that he shall admit him into paradise. One of them is the person who stays at home, neither backbiting a Muslim nor being a cause of anger or punishment for anyone. If he dies in this condition, then Allah guarantees Jennifer because you see, when we over socialize every day, every day we have to go to somebody's house or somebody has to come to our house.
We have to talk to somebody or we have to, you know, chill with somebody that in chilling what happens? We start lighting fire for ourselves. We're apparently chilling but we're lighting fire for ourselves we're destroying our deeds. Yeah a human soul mankind. Indeed we have created you from male and female and male people and tribes that you may know one another these differences are there differences in color in race and ethnicity background Why? So that you know each other, indeed the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and acquainted. The veteran say we have believed, say you have not yet believed, but say instead, we
have submitted for faith has not yet entered your hearts. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, he will not deprive you from your deeds of anything. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His messenger. And then do not doubt they don't have any doubt. But this tribe with their properties and their lives in the cause of Allah, it is those who are the truthful, say, Would you acquaint Allah with your religion, whether Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and Allah is Knowing of all things, because sometimes we try to justify our sins. I'm very honest, I'm very sincere to everybody. Allah knows
the state of our heart, we don't need to say that. We need to rectify the actual state of our heart. They consider it a favor to you that they have accepted Islam, say do not consider your Islam a favor to me. Rather Allah has conferred favor upon you that he has guided you to the faith if you should be truthful. Indeed, Allah knows the unseen aspects of the heavens and the earth and Allah is seeing of what you do.
