Sit on YT kawamata lahia Kathu How's everyone doing today? Is everyone ready for another session? hamdulillah so inshallah we're going to talk about a few things we could not talk about yesterday and inshallah and day before yesterday, so we're going to complete what we were talking about and inshallah today we're going to build on and talk about another beautiful name of this month, which is Chateau Dora, Saul hamdulillah. This is a month of supplication and our supplications can be granted to inshallah we need to make the most of this month and we'll look at some tips how to do that, inshallah. All right, so let's begin properly in an hamdulillah medigoo and his terrain who
was the hero? When are we learning in sruti and fusina women say? Dr. Molina Maja Hillel. velomobile Lara, for my you will refer to her Deanna but I shadow
in the longwater who luxury kana. But I shadow under Muhammad and Abdu l the villa him in wilhemina. Shakeology Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, rubbish roughly suddenly, we're certainly hungry or 100 all the time in the sunny slowly urbanizing Arima Aloma popping up indeed, May Allah give us the correct understanding of the deen Milani with us to make the most of this Ramadan. And may Allah grant all our doors this Ramadan. And we all right, so we're talking about summer the other day, and I told you guys that I'm going to tell you about something that we can say when we are going through some tough time in our life. So one was, of course in earlier you were in LA, you're on your own. But
there is another one we find another beautiful powerful statement by Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Let's just look at the narration first, a strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer. And there is good in everyone like both are good, but who's better, strong believer with cherish that which gives you benefit in the hereafter and seek help from Allah and do not lose heart and if anything in the form of trouble comes to you don't say if I had not done that, it would not have happened so and so instead of that we should say, Father, ye well Masha Allah, Allah did that what he had ordained to do and slow and by doing this inshallah we are implementing a
Sunnah we are affirming the Hodder, we are leaving the matters in the hands of Allah and we are showing that we are happy with the order of Allah or the the Villa hirado Bella Sammy Dino we were hammered in Libya sallallahu wasallam and we should not say if as Amanda saying if is also a way to show impatience, so you can maybe add that to your notes and this is a statement how the robot even I shall foreign to memorize it remember it whenever anything happens, which you don't like and which you were not expecting and you will not ready for so instead of saying anything negative say this.
And yesterday we're talking about holding the muscle while praying so for that the narration is reported by Buhari in a Mullah report, and it says I shall or the other one her she had a freed slave named laquan, who used to lead her in prayer and Ramadan, reading from the Masai spondylitis. Directly talking about Ramadan, it's talking about leading as well. And it's talking about most of again, like covers all the questions. And there there are the reports as well. And there are other reasoning and logical explanations, but Alhamdulillah it is totally fine. And may Allah enable us to make the most of the summit on what the Quran and when we spend a lot of time with her on we get sad
when it is the time of periods for ladies right? But unhandled love for that is to Dania has a very beautiful explanation, a very logical answer in three parts. So the three logical reasonings you can say and that is available on YouTube. I'm going to give you the link in the class. inshallah. I'm not sure if you can click on it or not. I can click on it, but I hope you can also do that. Can you try? Does it let you click on it?
Let me know so that I can give you links from now onwards, otherwise we'll have to stick to giving you no you can't Oh, sorry about that Intel. I'm going to give you the link here later, but for now, inshallah, just know that there is something out there which is going to help you and you can continue reciting Quran even on periods and you will get the reward for that inshallah. inshallah we're gonna post that in a bit. Okay, the topic for today is Shahada the month of da da is something which is so beautiful.
So, sister Amina Muhammad inshallah, yes, and Allah knows best.
Because that is something which is beautiful. The art is something which connects us to that creator, though our is our Comic Con is like our conversation with Allah. It's like, you know, we are pouring our heart out in front of Allah, we are showing that what we need, we also show that we are weak, and we are dependent on you Oh, Allah. So though has like we can go on and on about door for hours and hours of Allah would you tolerate we have only 10 minutes. So let's see what we can cover. inshallah. The best thing about the eyes is something which is very honorable in the sight of Allah. And this makes it so amazing and unique. Our relationship also becomes really strong with the
law like that. Because you know, no matter who that person is in the world, no matter who else, whoever else, we ask for something over and over again, that person gets annoyed. That person doesn't like us, isn't it? But when it comes to Allah, Allah doesn't mind us coming back to him over and over again. And he actually encourages that and his hobbies which is very beautiful from eternity lay sachet on Accra, MANOVA heater Allah Mina Dora is nothing more honorable with Allah than supplications are handler so if you want to be honored, we should back to Allah. This is something which is very amazing when we back to people we are humiliated, but many back to Allah, we
are honored. So don't feel bad when you have a lot of the eyes We should be happy about it Alhamdulillah and the way there is an ayah in the Quran which talks about the aura heavily it is placed at a beautiful location in the Koran. It is right after talking about fasting the month of Ramadan and also the fur on this is the iron iron or 186 on the on what either sir Allah hi birdie I Niva in me very woody with our the die either the iron failure study Bulli, while you may know de la langue your Sharon. And and when my servants asked you concerning me, indeed, I'm new. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant. When he calls upon me, to let them respond to me by acts of
obedience, and believe in me,
that they may be rightly guided Subhan Allah, so we need to do two things respond to Allah with obedience and believe in Allah, Allah will respond to our calls, Allah will respond to our there is insha Allah.
So from the above IR we learned that the eyes to Allah are a form of worship, and we should make the ask to Allah subhana wa tada in Ramadan, outside Ramadan, Amira and there are many opportunities of making doors. And also there's so many ideas telling us about the times of acceptance and also the stage in which our doors are accepted, there are many, so we cannot really cover all of them today, but inshallah you can do your own research and you can pull out or make out a list and make a list actually of all these times and all of these dates, so that you can make the most of them and not neglect them or ignore them or miss them out. inshallah. So there is a beautiful there as well it is
a beautiful Hadees which talks about three states in which our the US are accepted to supplications made by one was fasting is accepted by Allah, as it is seen in this release is Hadees is not just an N Bailey but it's also narrated in many other different books by Ronnie as well. So from this Hades, we learned the three there The eyes are not rejected. One is that our two valid data to invalid. So they're out of a father for his children. And second with our two sign, we do have a fasting person and the third is that are the most after the death of a traveler. So in Hamdulillah, we all are in one of these three categories at least. So we are fasting or the US will be accepted. There is
another narration which is which is very promising for the people who are fasting and I really really love this one to panela so in this narration you learn that in every day and every night during the month of Ramadan. There are people to whom Allah grant freedom from the fire and there is for every Muslim, other Allah which he can make and it will be granted
Subhan Allah, this is beautiful.
So, what do we learn from it? So, what have we learned from this is that there will be wonder which is accepted readily, because you know, all of our the aisles are accepted in one or the other ways. But, you know, when we talk about this Hadees only, so it is showing us that there must be one two hour which will be accepted during the day or night of Ramadan to inshallah, keep making doors and you can repeat your laws as well. If you really need something, you know, you can make the offer that like many times during the day, and pick all those times of acceptance to power up, you're, so you're already fasting. On top of that, if you're going to care about the times when our laws are
accepted, then inshallah the chances are going to be really high. So May Allah enable us to, you know, make the us a lot. And because this is worship to begin with, and then of course, we are getting a lot of benefit. There's another narration as well that has to do with at the time of if dar and that is from Hakeem, it says a fasting person upon breaking his fast has a supplication that will not be rejected. So instead of worrying about your food, and if tar and screaming children at that time, MC da you know, you can lay out the table you can do all the tasks we're doing, but make sure at that time you are doing your eyes we're making our eyes we're doing your Vicar as well.
Insha Allah because adore is accepted at the time of the star. So few things in Sharla that to do list are things to do in order to make the most of the month. Make as many doors as possible. So build on your list, keep adding guys. Secondly, cry, implore and beseech Allah with humility, especially when you're alone. Because when you're alone, it is, you know, Subhanallah when you're alone, you're able to focus more you are not doing Ria, you're not showing up and you can ask your heart out literally when you're alone because you're not worried about people looking at you you're not worried about people listening to you. So inshallah find some your time me time to make laws as
well. supplicate for yourself and also for others. So make the art for yourself and for your parents and for your family, for your spouse, for your children, for your neighbors for your Muslim Ummah, for everyone, for everyone inshallah. And you know, when we make to offer someone, especially the offer forgiveness, there's a narration about that as well, there's a hadith about it, that when we make the,
for anyone for their forgiveness, we get a good deed recorded for us somehow. So let's see if I may go over all of you right now that will please forgive everyone who is in this room. All of forgive everyone who is listening to us online, on Facebook live right now. So it is like for if I look at the room count, so it's like 270 so I'm getting 270 with deeds just like that to panela it's that amazing.
Okay, so Jimmy, let us Hang in there. I'm gonna give you the response with that Intel. And then, of course, point number four, make the hours after completing the acts of worship. So like after you're done your prayers, your you know, five daily prayers after you're done recitation of the Quran, after you're done any good deed, your eyes are going to be accepted right? So inshallah make sure that whenever you're done one good deed you can make door to Allah Subhana Allah and invoke Allah with his beautiful names. So the kind of the ironmaking you can inshallah invoke Allah subhanaw taala with his relevant team. So let's say you're asking Allah for risk. So you can say yada yada,
yada. And then you can ask him for risk. If you're asking him for some blessings, then you can say yeah, yeah, we'll have grant me the blessings, whichever kind of blessing you want. And similarly, if you're asking forgiveness, you can ask Allah with his Beautiful Names over four and a half bar. So you will be wise about picking the names inshallah and that will make it even more beautiful experience for you in sha Allah when you have the you know, the correct name and the correct are joined together and keep building on your lists in sha Allah and keep asking Allah for your deen dunya everything inshallah and don't miss some timing specially in Ramadan like so good time. And if
there are time and so Jude's with you because during sudo reclosers to Allah so I just want to quote the Hadees the nearest servant comes to his Lord is when he is introduced himself, so make supplication in this state. So inshallah That should be our time if you know a lot of short Muslim doors This is the time to make them and I hope you guys have been memorizing inshallah. So memorize
and handler to keep inshallah making the eyes during your scheduled time and use your mazumder eyes
In that time as well and the last hour on Friday, so don't miss that don't miss that out as well and sisters are on edema saying the names of Allah card is uploaded in the portal to inshallah you can take out the card from their sister Asia portal is our swim portal for the students who are taking this course as a registered student course or as a Certificate course and inshallah we have a lot of the apps and wildcards they're also on our portal already so you can make use of them and you know make the most of this from others as well. Okay, because every time we are done with our session for today, inshallah we're gonna talk about more tomorrow does come along came this year, I said I'm
already working with Allahumma bedika to ascend I'm already working with Ella Huber, Caitlyn Jenner. Sister Jimmy, I'm going to respond to you privately.
on long, long, long,

Abdullah bin are the weapons obeyed. He asked a smart er de la Mourinho who was his grandmother, that How were the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when they recited the Quran, meaning how did they appear? What was their manner like? She said they were as Allah Most High has praised them, meaning their eyes would weep and their skins whichever, meaning the effect of the Quran was very visible on their appearance in their eyes, and also in their posture in their attentiveness. So this shows us that when we recite the Quran and when we listen to it, let us not engage with the Quran as we engage with another text. Rather, we should be fully attentive, we
should be involving all of our senses. It will claim Rahim Allah said that if you wish to benefit from the Quran, then keep your heart focused while reciting it, or while listening to it. And focus your listening, meaning especially pay attention with your ears and be attentive with the attentiveness of someone who is being directly addressed through it. To whom he the Exalted is speaking, because Indeed, Allah has addressed you upon the tongue of His Messenger, meaning listen to every idea, recite every eye of the Quran, as if it is directly addressing you. So pay attention. Don't get distracted by other people. And don't get distracted by thinking about other people that
oh, this verse applies to them so perfectly. rather think about yourself. Take everything for yourself, be in love.
Just number 18 sola Menon Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim In the Name of Allah, the extremely Merciful, the ever continually Merciful By the airflow helmet me known, certainly will the believers have succeeded. No doubt the believers have attained success, meaning they have already prospered how In what way? What is it that they will have attained? What success will they achieve? It is Jenna. We learn in a Hadees that Allah the Exalted, created paradise with bricks of silver, and bricks of gold, and its mortar is of musk and he said to Jana Tucker, let me speak so it said are the Fleur Hellmuth Manoel the believers have truly succeeded? And the angel said boo by lucky men zillo mu
Luke bless it are you home of the kings? So the believers have succeeded how by attaining Jenna, but who are these believers who are upon success? They are a levena whom fee Salah to him ha she rune, they who are during their prayer, humbly submissive. In a narration, we learn that the people would look up to the sky while they were praying, and sometimes to the right and to the left. And when these verses were revealed, they would only look towards the place of prayer.
prostration and none of them were seen looking anywhere other than the ground. So this is what it means to pray, with humble submission with her. Sure. So who sure is to pray with such stillness, that it shows that one is praying humbly to the Lord of the worlds. So remember two words about who Sure, I'll hold ur was sukoon meaning humility and stillness, which means that if a person has Whoa, sure, in Salah, then there is stillness inside and stillness outside, there is humility inside and there's humility outside. So who sure is about attentiveness, it is not mere crying, it is to be attentive with the mind, with the body and with the heart. So if a person has who sure it means that
their hands are not moving here and there, it means that their eyes are not looking here in there, it means that they're not distracted, their body is still it shows that they are humbly standing before the Lord of the worlds. Remember that Salah is a reflection of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala it is a manifestation of the state of your knifes. So those who are humble before Allah in their life, those who are harsher in then they reflect the same in their Salah as well. And remember that who sure perfect the prayer, meaning without who assure Salah is like a body without any life. And the person who has who sure insula than such people are worthy of Allah subhanaw taala
his promise, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah has made five prayers obligatory.
If anyone performs ablution for them well, offers them at the right time and observes perfectly their record and who assure in them, meaning every portion of Salah every part of Salah they perform properly, and they also exhibit humility, and they're still in their Salah, then it is the guarantee of Allah, that he will pardon him. And if anyone does not do so, there is no guarantee for him on the part of Allah. Allah May pardon him if he wants and may punish him if he wants. And remember that who sure is something that makes Jenna wajib we learn in the Hadees that whoever performs will do and does it well. And then praise to the girl you could be your la humor be called B he will wear
g in which his heart and face are focused, meaning His heart is fully attentive towards Allah and His space. His body is also fully attentive towards Allah than paradise will be. His journey is guaranteed for a person who prays like this. And remember that our reward that we get from every seller is actually in proportion to our whole shoe or in that seller how attentive we were, how humble we were, how still we were. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a man returns after saying his prayer, while it 10th part of his prayer, or a ninth part, or an eighth part or his seventh or his sixth or a fifth or a third, or half of it is recorded for him. sopran Allah, meaning
what you get from your Salah depends on how attentive you were that same percentage. And remember that our standing before Allah on the Day of Judgment depends on how we stand before Him today, it will kill him said that a slave stands before Allah at two occasions. The first is during salah and the second will be on the Day of Judgment. So whoever stands correctly in the first occasion, then the second standing will be made easy for him. And whoever disregards the first standing meeting does not stand before Allah with humility, with submission with stillness than the second standing will be very difficult for him. So it is very important that when we're praying that we only focus
on Salah, we focus on Allah subhanaw taala don't allow your thoughts to wander, don't allow your eyes to wander. Don't be scratching yourself here and there. And don't be distracted from Sala to observe her sure insula. It is necessary that we begin Salah with that mindset with that commitment that now I have to focus on Salah, I have to have your insula and it is necessary that we begin Salah with that, with that determination that I am going to now focus on my prayer and I'm not going to rush through it. And every single time that the mind or the heart gets distracted, the limbs get distracted, then bring yourself back to sukoon make yourself still and humble again, meaning
throughout the solar strive against your naps. This is Mojo harder to knifes and remember
yourself of who it is that you are standing before that I am standing before the Lord of the worlds I am speaking to him. Remember the total Fatiha is actually a conversation. Every time you you say something you recite and I have sort of referred to how Allah subhanaw taala responds and sutra Fatiha is a draw at the end of which we're asking Allah to guide us to the straight path, and only the person who has been having that conversation properly. And he then Allah subhanaw taala says to him, that when we are the master, I'll let my servant shall have whatever that he is asked for. So it is necessary that we focus on what we are saying, we realize the fact that we are talking to
Allah. And anytime that you get distracted by the things of this world, remind yourself of the pettiness of this world, that it's not even worth it mosquitoes weighing in the sight of Allah learn the meaning of solar, so that you can help yourself focus in solo. And even when I am sad about this idea that Allah subhanaw taala has said regarding the the success of the believers that this is for who this is for those who pray with who assure in Salah. So this shows that a person who does not have for sure, in Salah, meaning they do not observe Salah with humility and stillness, they're constantly moving, they're constantly distracted. It doesn't show that they're standing before the
Lord of the worlds, then such people are not from the people of success. So if we want to be among the people of success, then we have to begin by perfecting our prayer by improving our sauna by bringing humility and stillness. And you know, sometimes the person thinks that, well no matter how much I try, I'm not able to focus, you certainly have control over your limbs. If you cannot bring closure from the inside out. Start from outside in meanings begin by observing stillness in your body, and then slowly and gradually inshallah your heart and mind will also be able to focus. So begin by controlling your movements in Salah that there should be no unnecessary movement. When
levina whom and Allahu Moretti Lune, and they who turn away from ill speech from all that which is low, you see who sure is only possible when a person refrains from level. And what is level level is every word and deed that is useless, that is undignified, that has no benefit in it. So when a person stays away from useless things, then they're able to stay away from what is worse than that what is unlawful. And that is what allows a person to focus on what is important when our mind is constantly filled with unnecessary things. And we're constantly distracting ourselves with unnecessary things, then we're not able to focus on things for longer than we're distracted, we have
shorter attention spans. And so in order to increase our attention spent in order to help ourselves focus on what is important, it is necessary that we allow our mind to have that space where we can enjoy some clarity, and some, some some freedom, so that we're not always being bombarded with information. And this is why it's important that we watch what we do between prayers. Also, we watch what we do right before salah and right after Salah. Because if we're watching things, looking at things and talking about unnecessary things, then of course that's going to have an impact on our prayer. Think about it. If you ever watch a horror movie, doesn't that affect you for many, many
days, you keep thinking about what you've seen, if you've been watching certain tiktoks you know those those sounds, those background music, you know that lyric, it will keep playing in your head. And imagine now a person is standing before Allah subhanaw taala and those sounds, you know those soundtracks are playing in their head, what what what an embarrassment, what a deprivation. So it is necessary that we filter out any what is unnecessary from our lives, so that we so that we can focus on what is necessary. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to recite a great deal of liquid, meaning he would remember Allah subhanaw taala a lot. He would engage little in idle talk,
he would make the prayer long, and he would keep the hotbar short. And he would not refrain from walking with a widow or a poor person and tending to their needs. This was the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the thing is that when we spend too much time on just pursuing our desires on useless things, then we're not able to make time for useful things. So remember, the beauty of a person's Islam is that kumala yarny he is that he leaves What does not concern him, what is not his business. So anything that does not benefit us in this life or the next life, then we have to train ourselves to avoid those things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that
Followed by a prayer with no idle talk between the two is recorded among their Elune, meaning amongst the highest, their Elune Where were the records of the righteous are placed when ladina homeless, Zach catifa Elune and they who are observant of Zoo cat, meaning big gives a cat on their wealth, and they also practice the cat, meaning they practice purification, purification of the soul. So self development is very important to them. And part of self development is that a person has her shoe or in their Salah, and they and they who guard their private parts, meaning their sexual relations are lawful, except from their wives, or those their right hands possess or indeed,
they will not be blamed, because what is lawful, what is permissible is not shameful, and there should be no guilt in that it is not against piety, but whoever seeks beyond that, whether it is indulging in Xena or prostitution, you know porn etc. Then those are the transgressors and they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive, meaning they don't neglect their commitments, Amana, Amana, and are mentioned over here. And remember, a manner and include every matter that a person takes upon himself, whether it is a religious nature, or worldly nature, whether it is a word or an action, and it includes dealings with people and commitments made with Allah subhanaw taala.
When livina whom Allah, Allah wa to him, you have your Loon. And they who carefully maintain their prayers, who diligently guard their prayers earlier who sure was mentioned. And here the guarding of prayer is mentioned. Meaning they guard the timings of prayer. They guard the prerequisites, the conditions, the pillars, they guard what they say in Salah, and then they also guard their prayers from getting wasted. So those who guard their prayers, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever guards the five prayers with their will do meaning they make sure they have will do and that they have done will do properly record sujood and their timings and then they also fast in
rubber. And this person also fast in the month of Ramadan makes Hajj if he is capable and gives a cat happily then whoever brings this with Eman on the day of judgment will enter Paradise. So it is said Ola eeka. Whom will very soon those are the inheritors. What will they inherit a lady in a Yeti Sunil for those who will inherit alpha those the highest level of Paradise, home female Holly Dune, they will abide there in eternally. So, what kind of people are worthy of this paradise? Those who have these qualities that Firstly, there is a man but that he man the movement either are not empty or not void of any good action? No, there's also good action and it begins with salah and then when
it comes to their Salah, it's not just that they're performing Salah that okay, dun dun dun, no, they're performing Salah properly with attentiveness, they also guard the prayers. So remember, these traits that are mentioned over here. They're not optional, they are required because it is the obligations that are mentioned over here not recommended deeds. Allah subhanaw taala is approval is gained by doing what he has obligated, not what your heart finds pleasing. So Allah the lady soon and for those whom fee her Holly Dune along with Dr. Levine home, and certainly did we create men from an extract of clay. Then we placed him as a sperm drop in a firm lodging. Then we made the
sperm drop into a clinging clot and made and we made the clot into a lump of flesh and we made from the lump bones and we covered the bones with flesh. Then we developed him into another creation. Look at the beginning and then look at the final product. So bless it is Allah the best of creators, then indeed, after that you are to die, then indeed you on the Day of Resurrection will be resurrected.
And we have created above you seven layered heavens and never have we been of our creation unaware and we have sent down rain from the sky in a measured amount and settled it in the earth and indeed we are able to take it away. What an excellent way of sending water down. Firstly, how beautiful is the fact that water is sent down from above so that we also feel connected with the sky. You know we feel connected to the ground because we are on it. But the sky is so distant It is so high above us. And Allah subhanaw taala sends rain down from the sky and we realize that there is something above also and then it is rain. Any the water that comes down from the sky is so gentle
It is as mentioned over here be further in, according to a certain measure, meaning not at random, because otherwise it would be devastating. If the, if the amount was too much excessive or if it was too little, then it would be devastating. And when Allah subhanaw taala shows us that, that how at times there is too much rain, or there is very little rain, we see the impact of that. So remember when Allah subhanaw taala sends rain down, it is according to a certain measure, this was not an accident or it was not random. No it This was pre planned for us can now who fill out and then the fact that Allah subhanaw taala causes rainwater to settle on the earth, this is also a huge mercy.
Because imagine, if no water stood on Earth, all of it got absorbed by the ground, then our life again would be very difficult. And we brought forth for you thereby gardens of palm trees and grape vines, in which for you are abundant fruits, and from which you eat. And we brought forth a tree issuing from Mount Sinai, which produces oil and food for those who eat. And this is referring to the olive tree. And now more blessings are mentioned. And indeed for you in livestock is a lesson we give you drink from that which is in their bellies. And for you in them are numerous benefits and from them you eat and upon them and on ships you are carried. Now the ships are mentioned over here
because the story of new Halley center is coming up next, what are called autosol lanahan, Isla comi II, and we had certainly sent Noah to his people. And he said, Oh my people worship Allah, you have no deity other than Him, then will you not fear him. But the eminent among those who disbelief from his people said, this has not been a man like yourselves, who wishes to take precedence over you. And if Allah had willed, meaning to send a messenger, he would have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our forefathers, sopran Allah, we learned in the Hadees that other mothers Salaam was a prophet who was spoken to directly by Allah. And there were between him and a new
alayhis Salam 10 centuries. Meaning After all, the wireless lab, it was no Halle Sam, who was sent as a resume. And there were 10 centuries between the two only meaning only 1000 years. But look at how people forgot so quickly, within just 1000 years, how quickly people forgot the fact that you know that Allah subhanaw taala, is to be worshipped alone, and look at the kind of things that they're saying, we have not heard of this among our forefathers, they said he is not but a man possessed with madness. So wait concerning him for a time meaning waited out, he will die very soon. And then we can forget about all of this. Any This should make us really worried that today there
are even more distractions, there is even more temptations. So how well are we teaching our children? How well are we? Are we informing them about who Allah subhanaw taala? Is? Do they know that they're supposed to worship only Allah? subhanaw taala? And are they firm and solid in their knowledge in their understanding so that they can pass it on to their future generations? Or are we only concerned about the material lives of our children? Because remember, shaitan is after everybody. So we have to do something to save not just ourselves, but our coming generations also. And we see that they said things about no halia salaam, they assume things about him completely
ignoring his message that we're just judging him. They said that he wants to take precedence over you. And he's only you know, he's a very cunning person who has a plan and he's using this to you know, exalt himself over you and perhaps he is mad any on the one hand they portray him as a very evil person who's got a very you know, evil plan and on the other hand, they call him insane so they're they're sort of you know, contradicting themselves so no holidays Salaam said or have been sold Nabi maca, the boon, my lord support me, because they have denied me. So we inspire to him construct the ship under our observation, and our inspiration. And when our command comes, and the
oven overflows, put into the ship, from every creature to mates and your family, except those for whom the decree of destruction has proceeded, and who were they his son and his wife, and do not address me concerning those who have wronged indeed they are to be drowned. And when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you then say Alhamdulillah Praise to Allah, who has saved us who has saved us from the wrongdoing people, meaning thank and praise Allah for being relieved. For being rescued from the evil of the enemy. We'll call Robbie and zillah
Monza and mobile rockin we're under Hyrule Monza lane and say My Lord, let me land at a blesseth landing place and you are the best to accommodate us. This is a door that is being taught to all servants, which means that whenever we get onto our vehicle or descend from it, whether it is your car or a plane or a train or a bike than say this door and when you reach your destination, then enter and enter a place you can say this door also, you know, sometimes you go to a new place a new school or a new workplace. Then ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless that for you are benzyl Lehman's Ella mobile can or under Hyrule, Monza lien, even when you return home, say this, indeed in that are
Signs and indeed we are ever testing what in canola, mobile tallien. Then we produced after them a generation of others, and we sent among them a messenger from themselves saying, worship Allah, you have no data other than Him, then will you not fear him. You see, the name of this nation is not mentioned the name of that Prophet is not mentioned, because this happened not just with one nation, but many. And the eminent among his people who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the hereafter. While we had given them luxury in the worldly life, they said, This is not what a man like yourselves, he eats of that from which you eat and drinks of that which you drink. And if you should
obey a man like yourselves, indeed you would then be losers. So Pamela This is actually not true. Following a human being and it doesn't mean that you're going to lose because when it comes to so many of our matters any week consult one another. If you are unwell you would listen to a doctor you will not say oh this doctor is only a human and you What does he know? Know you you trust people who are trained who are professionals. So prophets of Allah did not speak by their own desire may antico Anil, however, they only conveyed what they were taught.
Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones that you will be brought forth once more, how far how far meaning this is impossible. Is that what you are promised? Life is not but our worldly life. We die and live but we will not be resurrected. They said he is not but a man who has invented a lie about Allah and we will not believe him. Color have been sold an EB maca the boon he said, My Lord support me because they have denied me. Allah said after a while, they will surely become regretful so the shriek sees them in truth, and we made them as plant stubble, then away with the wrongdoing people then we produced after them other generations, no nation proceeds
it's time of termination, nor do they remain thereafter. Then we send our messengers in succession, one after the other. Every time there came to a nation, it's messenger, they denied him. So we made them follow one another meaning in destruction. And we made them narrations, just stories of the past, so away with the people who do not believe. Then we sent Moosa and his brother Harun with our signs and a clear authority to fit our own and his establishment, but they were arrogant. And we're a hottie people. They said, should we believe to men like ourselves, while their people are for us in servitude, meaning they're a slave nation, look at how racist they were. You see, these were all
excuses for not accepting the truth. So they denied them. And we're of those destroyed. And we certainly gave most of the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided, meaning they would listen to it, they would pay attention to it, and follow it. And we made the son of Miriam and his mother a sign and sheltered them within a high ground having level areas and flowing water. So you see here, both Miriam and her son, Risa de Sena, are mentioned how the fact that both of them were a sign, meaning both of them were a miracle, how they were born, and then their childhood the way they were raised, resorting to sin, I'm spoke as a baby money or I said, um, she had a unique upbringing. So
these these were clear signs, meaning the truth of the messengers was very visible, yet people focused on on their humanity, and they rejected them for that. Yeah, Are you her Rasul? Allah said, Oh, messengers kulu mina P. Bird, eat from the good foods, wire Malou Sally her and work righteousness. It may be Martha meluna Eileen, indeed, I have what you do. I'm knowing I know the actions that you're doing. And this is something that should really make us scared that we can just go on doing whatever we want, and eating whatever we want. Allah knows every single thing that we're doing. So we see here that all of the options
Prophets are addressed here, meaning every single messenger was given this command, what that eat of the good things and do righteous action. So we see that there is a connection between righteous action and eating food. Meaning the food that you eat will certainly have an impact on the kind of actions that you do. When a person eats what is lawful, what is good, what is good, what is clean, then they will be able to worship Allah subhanaw taala better also, their worship will be accepted. And remember, by him good food, this is what is lawful, good, meaning it is helpful, it is clean, and it is also suitable for you. Meaning eat that food which which is suitable for your body.
Meaning listen to your body, be merciful to your body. Don't just satisfy your taste buds and don't just eat something because everybody's eating it. Eat what is good for your body. Because remember, good health for a believer is very, very important. Because with good health, a believer is able to worship Allah subhanaw taala better with good health. A believer is able to do good things also, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, even though there is good in everybody, but the stronger one is better. Why? Because they're able to do more. So don't compromise on your food. Be careful about
what you eat. kolomela Ubud, wiremu Solihull her and do righteous actions. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions, they were so careful about what they eat, we learned that once a lady sent milk to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he sent the person back that find out where is this milk from? And the lady informed him that this was from her goat which he owns. And then the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said I'm drinking. And when that lady asked the Prophet sallallahu renuzit on that, how come you asked about that? He said that I and the messengers before me, were commanded to eat only what is clean, and to do only what is good. So we so the same
command is for us, eat only what is clean, lawful good, and do only that, which is good. And you will see that these days, depending on what you eat, for if thought, you know that that really impacts your ability to stand in prayer in the night. And if you've eaten properly, it's a hoof time. Again, only then you're able to, you know, do something good while you're fasting. So in the bema Dharma Luna alim, and indeed lists your religion is one religion, and I am your Lord. So fear me, meaning fear Allah subhanaw taala. In a Hadees, we learned that there are four things which if you have them, then no worldly loss should harm you. Meaning then you can survive if you have these
four things. What are the what are these four characteristics, the first is guarding trusts, the second truthful speech, the third, good manners, and the fourth is very photopolymer, meaning clean food, eating only that which is lawful, being careful about what you put in your mouth. And indeed, this your religion is one religion, and I am your Lord, sow fear me, but the people divided their religion among them into sects, each faction in what it has rejoicing, meaning instead of taking the religion exactly as it is, all of it in its entirety, they have only taken those bits and pieces which they like. But this is not the correct attitude. So leave them meaning those who are stubborn
in their division, you have nothing to do with them, leave them in their confusion for a time do they think that what we extend to them of wealth and children is because we hasten for them good things, rather, they do not perceive, indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord, meaning These are the people who will last panel tarna likes, these are the people who will be successful who those who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord, and they who believe in the signs of their Lord, and they who do not associate anything with their Lord, and they who gave what they gave, who do what they do, while their hearts are fearful. Why? Because they know that they will be
returning to their Lord, meaning no matter what they do, no matter what good they accomplish, they're still fearful of Allah subhanaw taala What are they afraid of? They're afraid about their ex about the acceptance of their deeds. You see, when we love someone, we really want to please them. And that concern keeps us preoccupied. We pay attention to so much detail. And then even after we have given them what we've given them, we keep making sure that you know it is something that they like, it is something that they have enjoyed. So when we do something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala
Let us not take it for granted that you know what it's accepted that as long as I have done it, it's enough. It's sufficient. Know, even after doing something good, let us be concerned about the acceptance of our good deeds. Wasn't Ibrahim earlier said I'm concerned about that, after he built the Kaaba, didn't he say a lot benna Taco Bell Mina, our Lord accept this from us. So I shall do more I know she asked the Prophet salallahu earlier center about this verse that he had also the law are these the people who steal and who commit Zina and who drink alcohol, and you know, they still have the fear of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no, or daughter of Sadiq. They are the
ones who pray, and fast and given charity mean they're doing good things. And as they're doing good things, they fear that it will not be accepted from them. Subhan Allah, this is their fear that what if I said something that caused my good deeds to be canceled? What if I, you know, I wasted my own effort? What if there was something I said, which Allah subhanaw taala did not approve off. So don't think that doing good is enough. Realize that what really matters is the acceptance of those good deeds. And this is that fear, which keeps a person striving, then they don't take what they have done, as you know, enough and sufficient. Know, they keep striving hula au Sadie Runa. Phil hi rod.
It is those who hasten to good deeds will home Lucha sabi Koon. And they outstrip others they're in, because they're eager for more, they don't check who is not doing, you know, as as much as they are. Rather, they focus on who is ahead of them. And they focus on what what more needs to be done. You see, when a person is very proud of what they've done, then what happens is that they stop exerting effort, they stop, you know, moving forward, they start, they stop working hard. But when a person has this fear that, you know, what I've done is not good enough. I know that there are imperfections in it, then they keep striving to improve themselves. Now, this doesn't mean that that fear keeps us
you know, weighed down, no, there should be a combination of both hope and fear. But hope should not make us arrogant. And at the same time, fear should not make us despair. It should keep us moving, striving. And we charge no soul, except with that within its capacity. And with us is a record which speaks with truth and they will not be wronged Subhana Allah, this record Kitab it will young people will help it will speak with truth. The record of deeds is going to talk, imagine eating the deeds are not going to remain hidden in there. They're going to come out, they're going to be you know, audible will be able to hear them. But their deeds are covered with confusion over this meaning many
people don't think about the fact that their records are being filled, and that it will speak against them. And they have evil deeds besides this belief which they're doing, until when we seize their effluent ones with punishment at once they're crying to Allah for help. Meaning right now they're in heedlessness, do not cry out today, indeed by us, you will not be helped. My verses had already been recited to you, but you were turning back on your heels. You did not even want to listen in arrogance regarding it conversing by night speaking evil, meaning instead of paying attention to the message of the Quran, what did you do amongst your amongst your friends, you spoke
evil about the Quran, you spoke evil about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Quran should do that. But it wasn't just the Quran. There are people who do that till today, that even when they get a chance to listen to what the Quran says that instead of contemplating over its message, instead of self in a reflection, they talk amongst themselves making fun of the Quran. So remember, Allah subhanaw taala knows how people treat his book, how they talk about it, they have then have they not reflected over the Quran? Or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers, any is the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm really preaching something that is completely new,
something that is unheard of, or did they not know their messenger? So they are to word him dis acknowledging, meaning don't they recognize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Is he really a stranger to them? Is it really not credible in their eyes? Don't they know who he is? In our bus said Did they not recognize Muhammad? sallallahu wasallam did they not know him when he was younger and did not know him when he grew older in among them? Did they not know his background? Did they not know his truthfulness? Did they not know his trustworthiness, his commitment so they
They're being reprimanded over here that what is wrong with you? Why do you deny your messenger? Are you really that unfamiliar with him? Or do they say in him is madness, rather, he brought them the truth, but most of them to the truth are averse. This is the real problem. People don't like the truth. But if the truth had followed their inclinations, the heavens and the earth, and whoever is in them, would have been ruined. And this is something that is ever relevant today. Also, because people want the truth to change. People want the truth to you know, accommodate their wishes, but that's not going to happen. Because if the truth is changed, then what would happen? Everything in
the heavens and the earth would be ruined. Rather, we have brought them their message, but they from their message are turning away. So the Quran Remember, it constantly invites to introspection, in fact, it compels you to reflect over yourself, but many people are unwilling, or do you ask them for payment, but the reward of your Lord is best. And he is the best of providers. So remember, the reward that Allah subhanaw taala gives, that is the best and that is what we should really be aiming for. And indeed, you invite them to a straight path. But Indeed, those who do not believe in the hereafter are deviating from the path. And even if we gave them mercy, and removed what was upon
them of affliction, they would persist in their transgression, wandering blindly, and we had gripped them with suffering as a warning, but they did not yield to their Lord, nor did they humbly supplicate. And we'll continue this until when we have opened before them a door of severe punishment, immediately, they will be there in in despair. Subhan Allah, when Allah subhanaw taala puts us in hardship. It is so that we yield to our Lord, we humbly supplicate we become obedient and compliant, and it is he who produced for you hearing and vision and hearts, little are you grateful, and it is he who has multiplied you throughout the earth and to Him you will be gathered. And it is
he who gives life and causes death and his his the alternation of the night and the day he causes that to happen, then will you not reason. Rather, they say like what the former people said, What did they say? They said, when we have died and become dust and bones are we indeed to be resurrected? Any This is like something stuck in their heads, something that they cannot get over with. We have been promised this we and our forefathers before. This is not but the legends of the former peoples say to Whom belongs the earth and whoever is in it, if you should know, they will say to Allah say then will you not remember any of Allah owns everything? Don't you understand? His
might say, who was Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the great throne? They will say they belong to Allah said then will you not fear him? Meaning Why don't you fear Him. And these verses are not just relevant to the people who you know worship idols along with Allah subhanaw taala or who denied the possibility of resurrection, these verses are also applicable to us. That you know, we we know who Allah is he he owns everything, he knows everything, yet we go on committing sin. Yanni this knowledge should make us fearful. Because see what is said here, a fella Kuhn, it is not enough to know that everything belongs to Allah, it is necessary that we then fear Allah say, in
whose hand is the realm of all things and he protects while none can protect against him, if you should know, meaning, only that person is safe, whom Allah subhanaw taala grants safety to which means that if Allah punishes someone, no one can rescue them. If Allah put someone in fear, no one can bring them out of that fear. So ask Allah subhanaw taala, for safety, for protection for relief, they will say all belongs to Allah say, then how were you diluted? Rather, we have brought them the truth, and indeed they are liars. Allah has not taken any sun, nor has there ever been with him any day tea. If there had been than each day it would have taken what it created. And some of them would
have sought to overcome others. Meaning then there would certainly be conflict. Think about the conflict that people have. What's the fifth Allah, Exalted as Allah, above what they described concerning him are limitless. He was Shahada, he is nowhere of the unseen and the witnessed. So high is he above what they associate with him. say oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my Lord, if You should show me that which they are promised, meaning if you punish them in my lifetime, then my Lord, then do not place me among the wrongdoing people. You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was afraid of the constant deny
of his people, that so he was taught that if the punishment should come in my life, then don't make me part of that save me. And indeed, we are able to show you what we have promised them repel by means of what is best. They're evil, we are most knowing of what they describe worker Ruby, or Ruby coming hammers at the shell clean, what Ruby cannot be a boon. And say, My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, My Lord, lest they be present with me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told to make this thorough, and there's lesson for us also, we should also make this door, this is such a beautiful door, that Yeah, Allah protect
me from the incitements of the shell clean, and keep the shell clean away from me, meaning Don't let them be present in my company. Because if shaitan is present with someone than a plan is going to lead that person astray. So a call to B says that hammers that in the lobby are with the becoming hammers that the shouting hammers up the incitements of the devil. These are those attacks of shaitan, when a person gets overwhelmed by uncontrollable anger, meaning a person is so filled with anger, that they that they must say something they must lash out, where they feel like their head will explode, unless they say something, any there's so much energy and pressure building up inside
of them because of what a plan is, you know, doing or saying to them. So then how do you deal with that kind of anger? Because if you explored, then you're accountable. And you will only regret later. So how is it that you counter such anger and sometimes it's not just anger, sometimes it has obsessive thoughts, obsessive thoughts about Allah, about people, about germs, any, it's so obsessive, that a person gets tired from them, that a person finds no escape. So yes, sometimes therapy is needed. But along with that, remember shavon is our enemy, and shaitan tries to harm us through our thoughts. So we must seek Allah subhanaw taala has protection. And look at the dog that
has been taught rugby are all the becoming hammers at the shell clean, what are all the become a be a boon made this there are teach this draw to to your children to your families. Because remember, our Woods is the best defense against shaitan. When you seek refuge with ALLAH, this is your best defense against shape on and even when a person is very angry, then they should seek protection with Allah subhanaw taala. Because when a person says are rubella than their anger subsides because saying are the Billa is a way of sort of, you know, distance of distancing yourself from your from that situation. It's a way of allowing yourself to consciously think, and not let your anger drive
you. And remember, there are certain things which if we say, in anger, the consequences can be very, very serious. There can be any irreparable damage that we cause, by speaking when we're angry, you know, marriages are destroyed, children, their self esteem is destroyed. So it is very important that we learn to control our anger, especially that anger, which is building up inside indeed, like like a pressure cooker. Don't just release that pressure by exploding on people learn to calm it down. And the way you do that, is by seeking refuge with Allah subhanaw taala. We learn in a hadith that once there were two men from the bunny Salah al who were good friends, one of them was very
righteous and the other and he would fall into sin over and over again. So his righteous friend would advise him that you know, what, don't do this, don't commit the sin, because you need this is not right. So he would say to him that you know what this is between me and my Lord. So leave me to myself, you're not, you know, in charge over me. So then one day, he, you know, he, this guy saw his friend committing a sin and he got really upset with him. He said, leave it, don't commit this. And he said, let me be, this is a matter between me and my Lord. collini you know, leave me with my Lord. And so he got so angry. He said, Well law he lay a fetullah hulak By Allah, Allah will never
forgive you. Allah will never forgive you because look at the kind of sin that you are committing. Or he said, lie you the phaedo Allah who agenda to Abba, Allah will never, ever admit you into Jenna. So you see, he was very, very angry, and he said, a statement like this. So what happened? I lost pounds, because both of these men to die. And he said to the person who committed sin, that you enter Jannah why because that man, and he said, this is a matter between me and my Lord. Any Yes, perhaps he had guilt and he had that you know, faith in Allah and that hope so Allah spawn Tada, pardon him, that with my mercy you entered
agenda. And the other one, the religious guy who would stop his friend and who got so angry that he said he will never untie agenda. The last person thought I said to him accountable Alamin Did you know about me? A quintarelli, your Murphy, Yeti, ha, Xena, did you have ownership of what is in my hand? Any do you make my decisions that I will not let someone enter Jannah or that I will never forgive them. And that person was then admitted into hellfire. So remember what we say in anger, even if it is coming from a place of righteousness or piety, it's very, very serious. So we must seek Allah's pousadas protection against anger, for such is the state of the disbelievers. Until
when death comes to one of them, he says, My Lord, send me back that I might do righteousness in that which I had left behind. meaning there's so much more good that I want to do but I was busy. I was having fun. So please send me back. Give me some more time. No, it is only a word he is saying. And behind them as a barrier until the day they're resurrected. There is a buzzer now, meaning now, after death, people are in a transit they're in the middle, they can go ahead, nor can they go back now they just have to wait for the trumpet to be blown. So remember, once the Angel of Death shows up, that is it. So be careful. Be careful. Don't waste your time getting angry and staying angry.
And then you know being distracted from what is important because you see when we're angry. You know shaitan comes in puts one what's what's on our head, and then what happens the entire day is ruined. And because of the kind of things we say to people in anger, the entire week is ruined. Any this has consequences. It distracts us from the purpose of our life. So seek Allah's refuge against the incitements of shaitan. So when the horn is blown, no relationship will there be among them that day, meaning no relationship will benefit that day. Doesn't matter. If someone's your parent or your child or your friend, doesn't matter. No one will care, nor will they even ask about one another.
That How are you holding up? No one will care. It will be as if those relationships never existed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said how can I be at ease when the angel of the trumpet has placed his mouth upon it, bent his forehead and is awaiting the command of his Lord? And he's literally waiting to be commanded so that he can blow the trumpet immediately. So this How about asked what should we say at that time, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said say has been Allah who an airman were keen, or to Allah law Hito Khanna and those whose scales are heavy with good deeds. It is they who are the successful, so don't be stingy in doing the little things even
you see some good deeds, even though they appear to be very small. They're very dense, ie they're packed with goodness. They're very heavy in the scale. For example, good luck. And part of that is to control your anger. Good words, remembering Allah soprano Tata. There'll be heavy in the scale. But those whose scales are light, those are the ones who have lost their souls, being in hell abiding eternally.
The fire will sear their faces, and they they're in will have told smiles meaning the fire will shrink the skin exposing the bones and the teeth suffered a lot. It will be said, we're not my verses recited to you, and you used to deny them, they will say Our Lord, our wretchedness overcame US law better Alena, shipka tuna, and we were a people astray. What is this wretchedness that overcame them was their desires wishes, because it is the pursuit of desires, which leads a person to wretchedness, or this assumption that we can do whatever we want, and nothing bad will happen. It is our own foolishness. Our Lord, remove us from it. And if we were to return to evil, we would
indeed be wrong doors just one more chance. Allah will say, remain despised. They're in and do not speak to me stuff at a law. Why? Because Indeed, there was a party of my servants we used to say, Our Lord, we have believed so forgive us and have mercy upon us. And you're the best of the Merciful. Meaning there were servants of mine who are very humble, who would call upon me, but what did you do? But you took them in mockery? You made fun of them. So be very careful when you speak about another Muslim. When you speak about a person who is worshiping Allah, never ever make fun of them. You know, people, they make mistakes. No, no human being is perfect. You can correct someone's
mistake without making fun of
them, you can any speak to them, you can communicate with them without mocking them. mockery is something that we see. Unless punctata does not like you took them in mockery to the point that they made you forget my remembrance, and you used to laugh at them. So never ever make fun of the religion, especially people who are on religion, people who are practicing Islam, who are doing something to please Allah subhanaw taala. comedy is great, but cheap comedy, in which people are making fun of those who pray, those who are eager to eat only Hello, those who stay away from any form of what is unlawful. People who are observant Muslims, this type of comedy is very dangerous,
making fun of someone's piety, marking their righteous actions, their worship, their obedience, and this is very, very low. So we'll come to min Han Taha Koon, you used to laugh at them, indeed, I have rewarded them this day for their patient endurance, because it's very hard to put up with, you know, people laughing at you, it's very painful. And it's very difficult to keep doing good, even in the face of mockery. So because of their Subhan, Allah rewarded them, that they are the attainers of success and the home home will fat, his own Allah who will say, how long did you remain on earth in number of years, they will say we remained a day or part of a day, ask those who enumerate he will
say, You stayed not but a little, if only you had known, if only we can understand this right now. This life is very, very short. Then did you think that we created you uselessly, and that to us, you would not be returned? Meaning you thought that you were just created and put in this world to have fun? That's it. This is why you forgot the ohana. So Exalted is Allah, the sovereign the truth, there is no data except Him, Lord of the noble throne. And whoever invokes besides Allah, another deity for which he has no proof than his account is only with his Lord, indeed, the disbelievers will not succeed. The surah begins with the statement that believers are successful and it ends with
the statement that in the hula, you flee whole calf your own, the disbelievers will not succeed. We'll call a battlefield our home or antihero raha mean, and say, My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and you are the best of the merciful mean
sudo to know Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim sola tone Anza now what followed nah ha, what an zelner fee her I add him been at La La Quinta Calhoun. This is a surah which we have sent down. Allah subhanaw taala has revealed the entire Quran. But this is especially mentioned here to show us to remind us of the importance of the surah Allah is the one who has revealed who has revealed the surah. So take the sutra very seriously and made and made obligatory, meaning the commands that are in it. So the commands that are given in the sutra are not optional. They're an obligation, they must be followed. So let us learn them properly so that we can follow them and reveal their inverses
of clear evidence, meaning there without any ambiguity, they're free of any ambiguity, they're very clear that you might remember. So what are the commands in the surah the first one, the woman or men found guilty of unlawful sexual intercourse, meaning Xena, then lash each one of them with 100 lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day, and he just shows us how much are the tests this act and let a group of the believers witness their punishment. Remember that our religion ensures the preservation of lineage and commands us of higher of modesty. This is a reason why Xena is not allowed. Because not only
does it cause paternity issues, it also violates the limits of hire. And remember, where there is no higher where there is no shyness there is no modesty, there is no faith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that part of what has reached people of the words of the earliest prophet hood, is that if you do not have modesty, then do whatever you like. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that hyah is from a man and a man isn't Jenna in another Hadees, that when one of them leaves than the other also leaves meaning hi any men are always together, another Hadees Bell who are Dino kulu, that hyah is all of the religion. So how could there be any tolerance for an act
like this? So we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam condemned Xena a
great deal. He said the one who commits an illegal sexual intercourse is not a believer at the time of committing that act. You've been Arbus explained that the light of a man departs from him when he is committing Zina. And remember there's severe punishment in the hereafter also, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the two men, two men came to me.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the two men came to me, held my arm and took me to a very difficult mountain. Over there were some people whose bodies had terribly swollen and from them was emanating a terrible stench like that of toilet areas. I asked Who are these? It was said these are men and women who would commit Zina. So we see that the punishment is severe. Even in this world, any lashes stuff at a lot is very, very severe. Why? Because this is a very strict measure that has been taken to prevent people from falling into a habit like this, because zinna remember, is neither healthy for the individuals involved nor their communities. It is the height of
immodesty, whereas modesty is from a man. It is a combination of immorality. There are many, many wrong thoughts, inappropriate behavior, sinful interactions that have happened before the act of Xena, Xena allows infidelity. It breaks the family, there is mistrust, there is non consensual sex there is the risk of contracting diseases, their sexual assault and there is much more. So remember that sex is not just simply a physical act of pleasure. It is more than a momentary physical act. It is directly related to a person's emotions, their thoughts, even their identity. And it produces powerful, even lifelong changes in the brain that influences a person's behavior significantly. And
remember that casual hookups, any they can never be safe. It's not as safe as it seems because a person can do something to protect their body from disease, but the damaging effects of such behavior any they're unavoidable, they're long term. There's studies that show that people show more depressive symptoms and loneliness after engaging in casual sex. And even if research on this topic may be inconclusive, as some people suggest, it is enough for the believer that Allah subhanaw taala does not allow this, that is it. Allah subhanaw taala does not allow this so samina will Aparna, the fornicator does not marry except a female fornicator or polytheist. And non marries her except a
fornicator or a polytheist. And that has been made unlawful to the believers. Meaning when you know that someone commits Zina and that they are fine with it, they have no problem with it, they have not repented from it, then please do not marry such a person. Do not make your daughter marry such a person. And don't think that getting his zanni married will stop them from committing Zina. It will not stop them, it will only put their spouse in danger. So many women's lives have been ruined, because they have been, you know, kept in the dark about the activities and the behaviors of the men that they're marrying. And they find out only after marriage that their husband has been Zani for so
many years. So this is something that harms the individuals that they're marrying. So this is why this is not allowed unless and until a person has completely repented. Because once they have repented, they have changed their behavior. They have you know made Toba then in sha Allah that is good. And those who accused chaste women of what have Zinner and then do not produce for witnesses, lash them with at lashes and do not accept from them testimony ever after. And those are the defiantly disobedient. So we see here the punishment of other is being given other fees to accuse someone of committing Zina and not producing any evidence for that. And the evidence is what four
witnesses who with their own eyes have seen the act and this is
very rare. So if a person does not bring the witnesses but there is to say that she has committed Zina or he has committed Zina, then you know what, they will be punished. This is why it is very, very important that we are careful about the things that we say about other people. Any we see that so many women's lives, especially a notice how women are mentioned and this is it doesn't mean that men are not accused men are also accused, but usually it is the women. It is the women who become target of such violence. So many women's lives are ruined by such accusations where we see that first a woman is falsely accused, and then the law is misused against her. In fact, there are times
when a woman
When is raped and then she's accused of committing Zina. So there is violence upon violence. So we have to be very careful illa levina taboo, except for those who repent thereafter and reform for Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So remember, the people's honor, the honor of the believer is very, very sacred and our religion. So raising such, you know, scandals and spreading such scandals, talking about who is sleeping with who this is not just Luckily, not only is this useless talk, it is a waste. It is unlawful, it is sinful. In fact, it is a major sin. It is among a several movie called The seven destructive sins. We learn in a hadith that if someone slanders his slave,
a man a person slanders their slave that my slave has committed Zina with so and so, and the slave is free from what he says, then he will be flogged on the Day of Judgment. He will be flogged on the Day of Judgment. And another Hadees we learn if anyone makes an untruthful accusation against a Muslim, he will be made by a love to dwell in the corrupt fluid flowing from the inhabitants of hell, until he retract his statement, stuffit Allah, and he This is something dirty, it's something filthy, don't talk about, you know, people's illicit relationships. Even if you know for a fact don't talk about it. Because when you talk about it, you are basically accusing them. And if you are
accusing them without witnesses, then you are the one who is punishable. You are the one who deserves punishment, if not in the world, then definitely in the hereafter. So be careful when talking about such things, in fact, don't talk about such things at all. And those who accuse their wives of adultery, meaning a man has himself seen his wife commit such an act, then any How is he supposed to continue in a relationship like that, and have no witnesses except themselves, then the witness of one of them shall be for testimony swearing By Allah, that indeed he is of the truthful. And the fifth oath will be that the curse of Allah be upon him if he should be among the liars, but
it will prevent punishment from her, if she gives for testimony swearing By Allah, that indeed he is of the liars. And the fifth oath will be that the Wrath of Allah be upon her if he was up the truthful. So here, Leon is mentioned, and remember, Leon is only done by the men. Because if a woman is expecting a child, and she's married, then of course, it's understood that the child belongs to the husband. But if the husband has seen himself, that his wife has committed Zina, and if he speaks, then he is punishable, because then you know, he doesn't have any witnesses. But then how is he that he can continue with that relationship and have you know, that child be associated to him?
So remember, that this is, this is Leon is only initiated by the man because it's a paternity issue. It's a paternity issue. So this is why it's only for the men. And if a woman sees her husband and something like that, of course she has the right to leave that marriage. In, well Ola for Lula here aleikum wa rahmatullah and if not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy. And because Allah is Accepting of repentance and wise, meaning otherwise your life would be very, very difficult. Indeed, those who, indeed those who came with falsehood are group among you, what is this if this false hood this lie that some people came up with this is referring to the incident of incident of
if remember that, that on returned from a certain expedition, our shuttle de la Mancha, she went to use the bathroom and the people left thinking that she was in her carriage. And when she returned to the place where the people had camped, she note she realized that she had been left behind. So she stayed where they had camped, thinking that when they will realize that she is missing, they will come back to find her. So one of one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he his job was to remain behind the caravan to ensure that nothing had been left behind. And so when he passed by, and he noticed her, he brought her back to Medina. But on seeing this the enemy of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or the Lebanon obey the chief of the hypocrites. He said that the two had been up to something, meaning he accused them of Zina suffered a lie and people did not even spare the life of the Prophet sallallahu already who was under any This is the height of toxic male privilege. This news it spread, and people responded in different ways. This was certainly very hurtful for I shall de la Mourinho for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for their families, for their friends for the believers. But what does Allah subhanaw taala say? He says, Do not think it is bad for you. Rather, it is good for you. Allahu Akbar.
Any for the believer there is nothing bad nothing at all a slander like this. And remember any it took a long time, I should have the long run How was sick, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unsure. And then finally these verses were revealed after about a month, that entire ordeal, almost paralysis, do not think it is bad for you. Rather, it is good for you. How could it be good for you? Because there were so many good things that came out, especially for our Chateau de la Mourinho, her innocence was revealed her chastity, her fear of Allah, her piety was established, it was revealed by Allah subhanaw taala. What a great honor for her that Allah subhanaw. taala is the
one who defended her. And because of this false accusation, because of her patients on that her reward was also great. And of course, there was a great lesson in this incident for all believers to come, and humiliation for those who falsely accused her people who speak carelessly, so don't think it is bad for you. Rather, it is good for you, and for every person, among them is What punishment he has earned from the sin. And he who took upon himself the greater portion they're off, meaning the person who initiated who invented the scandal, or the love and obey, for him is a great punishment. Now, some lessons are being taught. But why, when you heard it did not the believing men
and believing women think good of one another? This is the lesson to learn, then when anyone is accused, but also and so has committed zinna put yourself in their position, that if it was me in that situation, would I do something like that? So why didn't they think good of one another and say this is an obvious fault? So it means they should have rejected it immediately? Why did they meaning who slandered not produce for it for witnesses, and when they do not produce the witnesses, then it is they in the sight of Allah who are liars. So remember, you don't prove innocence, you have to prove guilt. And if you cannot prove guilt, then you are guilty for accusing someone without
evidence. And if it had not been for the favor of Allah upon you, and His mercy in this world and the Hereafter, you would have been touched for that lie in which you were involved by a great punishment.
When you received it with your tongues, received it with your tongues, meaning the moment you heard about it, immediately you passed it on, the moment you read it immediately share immediately forward, any we have to be very careful when you received it with your tongues and said with your mouth, that of which you had no knowledge. And you thought it was insignificant. It was not a big deal. Well, it was in the sight of Allah tremendous. So we have to be very careful about the things we say the things we share the news we pass on, you know, sometimes we are so thrilled by sensational news that we cannot wait to share. But you think it is not that important? It's no big
deal meaning not not really a big sin. But in fact, it could be very, very great near Allah subhanaw taala even sitting said that By Allah, I do not cry over the sins I have committed, rather I cry over sins, which I thought were insignificant, whereas they were big in the sight of Allah. Meaning I didn't even realize I didn't even think that you know, that they were sinful. But and the thing is that when a person does not think, does not realize that what they're doing is something serious in the sight of Allah, then they will not even repent from it.
Will Ola and why when you heard it, did you not say it is not for us to speak of this? Any even if you hear such information, you know, such news and people produce image after image that, you know, look at this screenshot and look at this picture and look at this, you know, video recording and all of that, look at this voice recording, even if such information is being passed around. Are you the judge? Are you Yanni the jury is that that you have been called to pass a judgement? It has nothing to do with you. So it's best that you mind your own business? It is not for us to speak of this stay away from such conversations. Exalted are You Oh Allah, this is a great slander, meaning you should
have spoken against it you should stop one another from talking about such things. Allah warns you against returning to the likes of this conduct ever, if you should be believers. So this shows us that the believers do not talk about such things. They do not accuse one another. They do not talk about scandals like this. And Allah makes clear to you the verses and Allah is Knowing and wise, Indeed, those who like that a morality should be spread among those
have believed we'll have a painful punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and Allah knows and you do not know. So, the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala does not like alpha heisha he does not like immorality, and he does not like that people should talk about it. Why? Because when we talk about it, then it becomes common. And when it becomes common, then people more people committed more people talk about it, and then that feeling is gone from the heart that you know, this is this is dirty, this is not clean stuff. So, we should not talk about immorality at all, our tongue should be clean. Even our bus or even Irma any there were some with some of his with there. One of them. It is
said that one of them was with his companions, and some food was being served. And there was a slave woman over there who was working in their presence. And a man said to her, you know, he called her osmania
zanni has a woman who commit Zina like a prostitute. And there's, you know, equivalent insults that are used these days to address women.
So he said, Oh, zania he said quiet. If she does not exact the punishment from you in this world, she will take it from you in the next world. Meaning if you accuse her if you insult her with such a dirty word, honey, she will take revenge. You are calling her azania this is not acceptable. So remember, all swear words, especially swear words that are lewd, we must not use them. No matter how angry we are, no matter how much we think the other person is worthy of it is deserving of it. Because if you think about it, a lot of such lewd you know, such swear words. What do they refer to they refer to indecent acts. They refer to sexual violence, sexual profanity. And some people have
made it a habit to use such words. And they use them even you know when they're talking to their own children, or over little petty things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah does not like indecency. He hates the indecent person and the one who seeks in decency. Any such indecent speech, shameless speech has nothing to do with Islam. It is not something that befits the believer. So whether it is in jokes, okay, or in comedy, or in anger, or in regular conversations, or in song lyrics, whatever it is, Allah does not like lewd speech. So neither Bibi initiator, nor be the promoter, don't even say such words, because when you will say them, you are promoting them. So stay
away from such expressions, stay away from such words. And if it had not been for the favor of Allah upon you, and His mercy, and because Allah is kind and merciful, then you know what you would be in great distress, there would be serious consequences for you, for for, for saying such you know, lewd words and such dirty talk, there would have been severe consequences, or you have believed, do not follow the footsteps of shaitan. You see, these are footsteps of shaitan where shaitan takes you from one sin to another, and whoever follows the footsteps of shaitan Indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing, and if not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy, not one of you would have
been pure ever, but Allah purifies whom He wills and Allah is hearing and knowing. So we should ask Allah for forgiveness. And we should ask Allah for purity of tongue, your Allah, grant me a tongue that is clean, that no matter how angry I am, no matter how upset I am, or no matter how light I'm feeling, I don't resort to dirty words.
And let not those of virtue among you and wealth, swear not to give aid to their relatives and the needy and the immigrants for the cause of a law and let them pardon and overlook aloud to a Buddha if you're Allahu Lacan, would you not like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. You see, one of the people who spread the slander against Rochelle de la Mourinho was actually a relative of Abu Bakar on de la hora, whom Abu Bakar would financially support. So what can I do love Mourinho was so hurt he was so angry that he decided never to offer him any financial help again. But Allah subhanaw taala interceded over here that no, you have money, you are a
virtuous person, so don't swear that you will never give him anything again. No, you are better than that. So forgive overlook Don't you want that Allah should forgive you? Amazing any This was such a serious offense. Imagine someone accuses your daughter of Xena what would you do? You would want to chalk that person to death you would want to strangle him yourself? Any How dare you speak of my daughter like this? How dare you? But look at Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah is telling him forgive, overlook pardon.
Because now if you forgive, Allah will forgive you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So when Allah forgives, you should also forgive. So remember that the recompense for an action is similar to the action that has been done. The reward matches the good deed, and the punishment also matches the sin. So the one who forgives that Allah will forgive him as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said far for your is the qumola, you should show pardon and Allah will honor you, Allah will honor you. So remember, the tolerant and forbearing person is not the one who is tolerant when oppressed and vengeful when when he is able to take revenge. Rather if forbearing person is tolerant when
oppressed and forgiving when he is able to take revenge. And remember that the person who forgives people actually puts himself at ease for Laila in Riyadh said that if you're able to take revenge fairly then do so otherwise opt for pardon, because it is a much broader door and the one who forgives and mens than his reward is due on Allah. And the one who forgives sleeps in peace in his bed. And the one who takes revenge worries night and day because constantly he's thinking about how to take revenge. So forgive in alladhina Moodle Marsan at indeed those who falsely accused chaste unaware and believing women are cursed in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have a great
punishment. On a day when their tongues, their hands and their feet will bear witness against them as to what they used to do stuff at Ulla, you see, any people who are interested in such gossip, then yes, their tongue is involved, their hands are also involved because now Subhanallah and because of the fact that we're using our phones constantly typing hands are involved and on feet are involved because you're going from place to place so that you can hear more, you can speak more. So their hands feet tongue, they're going to speak against them on the day of judgment that day, Allah will pay them in full their their deserved recompense, and they will know and they will know that it
is Allah who is the perfect injustice. Evil words are for evil men, and evil men are subjected to evil words, meaning such words don't defeat good people. And it is only evil people who will say such words, or this idea means that bad men or for bad women and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu or Islam was a play of man, his wife, Ayesha, was a woman play Yuba. And good words are for good men. They're worthy of it. And good men are an object of good words. Those good people are declared innocent of what the slanders say meaning no matter how much they're accused, they're innocent, for them as forgiveness and noble provision, why for their patients over hurtful words. So remember,
your speech reflects who you are, what you talk about reflects your interests, you are what you say, and a person is recognized by their speech, you see your speech reflects your maturity or your immaturity, and it reflects your o'clock also. Now some rules are given more laws are given. First was related to our speech. And now our actions or you who have believed, do not enter houses other than your own houses, until you ascertain welcome and greet their inhabitants that is best for you. Perhaps you will remote you will be reminded meaning do not enter into people's homes without permission. seek permission, knock say Salaam, say your name. And once you have been granted
permission, then you enter. And if you do not find anyone there in do not enter them meaning there's no answer. But it doesn't mean that okay, you open the door and peek inside No, don't enter until permission has been given to you. And if it is set to you go back which means that you are allowed to refuse people from entering your homes. And if you don't want someone to enter your house at a certain time you have the right to say please come another time. So if it is said to you go back then go back don't get offended. It is pure for you. And Allah is Knowing of what you do. There is no blame upon you for entering houses not inhabited meaning a public place like library or community
center, any in which you have a reason to go You don't need to take permission may enter in which there is convenience for you, meaning you have a reason to go then you don't need to take permission and Allah knows what you reveal and what you conceal. Now another command is being given cool little meaning in your home in our society him or Prophet sallallahu wasallam you tell the believing men to reduce some of their vision, meaning they should lower their gaze. Men should guard their eyes and they should also guard their private parts that is pure for them. Indeed, Allah is
acquainted with what they do. Meaning Allah knows their actions. Remember that the eye is the window to the heart, what the eye sees reaches the heart. So, if a man's vision and this is a man, not a woman, because the verses related to women are coming ahead, so, this is particularly about men. So, if a man's vision falls on what he should not be looking at, then what is the etiquette that we are being taught here, that the man should turn his gaze away? You see, men are particularly sensitive to visual cues, it is commonly said that men are visual. So what they look at can easily trigger you know, arousal so it is especially necessary for men to control their eyes. And in general, also, men
should practice you know, lowering their gaze, that if a woman is before them, and sometimes even she's covered, and you keep staring at her and you'll find that one stray hair coming out of her hijab, you know, before telling her to go hide in her house, perhaps you should lower your gaze. Sometimes a fitna is inside it is not outside. So when a woman senses that fitna inside, when a man senses that fitna inside, then he should look away, he should move on. If a woman's voice is causing a problem, you know her presence is calling a problem that causing a problem then please with all due respect, scroll on. And when a man controls his eyes, remember, only then he is able to control
his thoughts, his actions and his behavior. And the man who will guard his eye will guard himself against major sins. And remember, when a man leaves something for the sake of Allah, then Allah will give him what is better, Allah will give him satisfaction through what is lawful. And if a man is careless about this, then remember Yara Maha in our union our motto is sudo. Allah knows the treachery of the eyes and what the chests conceal. Allah knows when he is looking at something when a man is looking at something wrong secretly, while others may not be watching, Allah knows what what the man's mind is imagining. So remember, that even the eyes commit Zina. This is why the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he advised RDL de la Mourinho that do not give a second look, or early because while you are not to blame for the first, you have no right to the second, meaning, the first time you look at something, you know, unintentionally, your eyes fall in something inappropriate. You're not accountable for that for that accident. But what you are responsible for is the second one when you choose to look at that again. So whether it is a drawing or a person, an adult or a child, a video or a magazine, or billboard, practice self restraint. And when you practice that self restraint when a man lowers his eyes, and remember Allah subhanaw taala he
appreciates this a lot. We aren't in a hurry, these three eyes will not see the fire on the Day of Judgment. The eye that weeps from the fear of Allah, the eye that guards in the way of Allah meaning it stays away guarding people in the way of Allah and the eye that was lowered from looking at prohibited things. It Allah knows the effort that a person is putting, you know the self control that a man is practicing, Allah knows that and he will reward him for that. So lower the gaze, and then next, protect the private part. Meaning cover your body properly, do not expose it and and also guard the private part from doing what is unlawful. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
guarantee six things to me and I will guarantee you paradise. When you speak, speak the truth when you promise fulfill it. When you are trusted, then fulfill the trust. guard your private part, lower your gaze and keep your hands to yourself.
Now, next IEA and oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell the believing women to reduce some of their vision, meaning women should also guard their eyes because women also have desire, and they will also be held accountable, so they should be careful, and they should guard their private parts, meaning they should also protect themselves from committing Zina, and an additional instruction for women. They should not expose their adornment, except that which necessarily appears they're off, meaning they should cover their adornment. But then no matter how much a woman covers herself, there will be something that will still show you know her eyes or hands or hide the small jewelry that
she's wearing on her hands perhaps. So there is no any extreme difficulty that has been created in our religion. So what do we see here we see that a woman should not expose her Zina her adornment.
This doesn't mean that she should not adorn herself. No, she
Should adorn herself, but she should cover herself. How should she cover her adornment? Allah subhanaw taala teaches the way and what is that and to wrap a portion of their head covers over their chests, meaning they should use a head cover to cover their adornment, whether it is whether that adornment is you know, on the on the hair, or it is, you know, on the chest, any dish should cover that, that adornment with a head covering. And this means that, you know, for example, there's makeup or there's jewelry, they should cover that, and especially what is mentioned here is that they should place a part of that head covering over their chest, you need to further cover and
conceal the chest because that is a major part of a woman's beauty. Unfortunately, many women will wear the scarf but they fail to cover the neck and the chest correctly. Remember, a portion of the headscarf should be put on the chest. You need the shirt or the dress, the turtleneck is not enough. You have to take a part of your home out of your hijab and place that on your chest. So where should they cover their adornment? It is clarified over here and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands, fathers mean father in law their sons, their husbands sons, their brothers, their brothers sons, their sister sons, their women, meaning within their social
circles as long as there are no men present, that which the right hands possess this is referring to slaves, not servants, or those male attendants having no physical desire. This is extremely old men or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women meaning little boys. But if they have learned about these things, through movies and through school curriculum, then no, and let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. So we see here that it's listed in so much detail. Any who a woman is allowed to reveal her adornment before any all of this detail is for what is it useless? Is it for no reason? Look at the length of this ayah. And it's
unfortunate that you know we will read these ayat, but we will go on living our lives as if these verses don't exist. This should not be our attitude, we have to take this very seriously. And then it is mentioned at the end that let them not stamp their feet meaning walk in such a way that the the adornment that they're concealing becomes evident, meaning they should not walk in a way to you know, deliberately to attract people to their beauty, meaning such clothing or shoes or manner of walking, because of which people begin to stare at her. Now this in no way means that it is the responsibility of women to ensure that men are not tempted. No, we see that the men were commanded
first to lower their eyes, every person is responsible for themselves. But at the same time, we must not forget that a person is also a product of their environment. Our behaviors are guided by our internal mechanism, meaning what we think what we decide that affects our behavior. And there is also external forces meaning our environment that also affects our behavior. And there's plenty of research, you know, that shows that our environment does have an impact. So we see that individuals are taught to take responsibility for themselves, lower your gaze, right, but it must also be acknowledged that the environment affects them. So this is a reason why men are told to lower their
gaze and guard their private parts meaning to cover themselves. And women are also told, lower your gaze and guard your private part. But women because generally men are more attracted to women. And it's it's well known. I mean, if that was not the case, then why would we have women, you know, used in advertisements to sell cars, any Subhanallah you go to any car show and what you will see is women who are scantily dressed, for what reason, any advertisement you need, the cheapest things also are being sold on TV how with a beautiful woman. Why? Because men in general are attracted to women more than women are attracted to men's physical beauty. This is any indisputable, this is a
fact. So this is why women are taught here to not reveal their adornment. So imagine now if Despite this, any a woman is covering herself. And a man has been told to lower his gaze, yet he harasses her, yet he fails to lower his gaze and control himself, then that is really a proof of his own evil than a woman is not responsible. So let us not blame women, for what you know, for for what the men do. And despite the fact that women are covering themselves, so
These are not things that you know, people have said these are verses of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is reason why it's important for us to talk about these concepts very clearly. And this is a truth that many people find uncomfortable. And it's almost become, you know, politically incorrect to talk about such things. But it is our responsibility to remind one another because Allah subhanaw taala has made the sutra an obligation. So the truth must be conveyed. And the responsibility is on each individual. It is up to us as to how we follow the commands of Allah were to boo Illa Allah He jamea on a u haul mcmeen on and turn to Allah in repentance, all of you all believers, meaning not
just the men, but the women also, not just the women, but the men also, every single believer must make Toba to Allah, y la Allah come to flee home so that you might succeed. You see Toba is that a person turns back, meaning they leave the wrong that they're doing. But that is only possible if a person acknowledges their error. There are ways to turn back to Allah to change your course of action. And sometimes this means changing your manner of dress, changing your manner of walk, changing your manner of interacting with the opposite gender. And remember that Toba is to repent immediately from disobedience and he with feelings of regret, to not delay to not be lazy in leaving
sin. It means that a person acknowledges their sin with humility, that they feel bad, they humble themselves before Allah and to seek Allah's forgiveness your Allah forgive me for what I did in ignorance. And then Toba is that a person replaces those sins with good deeds to erase those sins. Because sometimes what happens is that, you know, for example, a woman is going out, revealing her Xena and then later on autoboca was daffodil I should have done that. No, this is not Oh Toba is that with guilt with humility, you know, there's there's a real there is a visible change. And when a person fears the punishment of Allah, when a person hopes for the reward that is with Allah, then
they rush to repent, when they regret over their sin, when they have love for Allah or xojo. When they realize that Allah is watching them, and they feel a loss patatas favors upon them, then they cannot sit without making Toba. They turn to Allah. Ya Allah forgive me, because it is not. You see our actions, you know, forget about people. People can say whatever they want, at the end of the day, what matters is what Allah will say regarding our deeds, our matters should be good. It should be clean with Allah subhanaw taala and marry the unmarried among you meaning Don't let people remain single, help them get married, and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. So the
people who have reached marriageable age and find a suitable match for them, and get them married, meaning don't leave people single. Marriage is not just for the doctors and engineers, for people who are perfect for girls who are, you know, perfect with beautiful hair, marriages for every adult. And this responsibility to help them get married is on the entire community, not just the parents, if they should be poor, Allah who will enrich them from his bounty, and Allah is all encompassing and knowing. You see many times when people think about financial constraints related to getting married, it is the wedding expenses that they're more concerned about because we have made our
weddings into shows and a complete waste of wealth, the dresses, the decorations, the entrance, you know, the videography, the food, all of that just to impress. Remember Nika blesses wealth, and wastefulness makes room for shaitan. Allah this likes for us to waste our money. Abubakar de la hora, and who said obey Allah in what he has commanded you have nikka and Allah will fulfill for you what He has promised you have Lena, meaning he will enrich you He will give you financial independence. But let them who find not the means for marriage abstain from sexual relations until Allah enriches them from his bounty, meaning Yes, it is hard to wait. Sometimes loneliness gets to a
person but just because they're not able to find the right person yet, it does not mean that they let go of the boundaries that Allah subhanaw taala has set and those who seek a contract for eventual emancipation from among whom your right hands possess meaning your slaves, then make a contract with them. If you know there is within them, goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which he has given you. Meaning if if a slave wants to buy their freedom and cooperate and do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, and the desire chestatee to seek thereby the temporary interests of worldly life. So pimps are being addressed over here that stopped this business of
prostitution. Do not compel a woman to do
This and financially benefit from exploiting her, and if someone should compel them, meaning if a woman is compelled into this, then Indeed Allah is to them after their compulsion Forgiving and Merciful, because she never wanted to do that act anyway. And We have certainly sent down to you distinct verses and examples from those who passed on before you and an admonition for those who fear Allah, Allah who knows some Iwaki well all Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth, meaning Allah is the Creator of light, and the giver of light, the one who is himself light, he is the source of physical and spiritual light, his book is known for his guidance is known, he himself
is known. And the example of his light, meaning the guidance that he gives is like a niche within which is a lamp. The lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly white star, lit from the oil of a blessing olive tree, neither of the East nor of the West whose oil would almost glow, even if untouched by fire, neutron, Allah nude, light upon light, what a bright light because all the elements of purity and brightness have been combined over here, there is a reflective niche, a burning lamp, a reflective crystal globe, and the purest fuel, Allah guides to his light whom He wills, and Allah presents examples for the people. And Allah is Knowing of all things. So this is
the light of a man neuron Allah node. The first is the light of a man and when the light of Quran is added to it, that it only augments that light and there is light upon light, complete enlightenment illumination awakening. So when a person is given the man, this is something that enlightens a person from within their internal and their external, how within them, there is the light of fitrah than the light of a man which lights the week of the lamp than the light of knowledge, there is that beautiful oil, so there is clarity, there is sharp, Southern, there is conviction. And then there external is also enlightened. So the actions are beautiful, they're consistent. The person is
steadfast, they're productive, they're useful, they're blessed said and then they also bring light to their surroundings, enlightening those around them. And notice how this has mentioned right after verses that talk about lowering the gaze, supernova. You see when a person lowers their gaze from what is not right to look at. Then Allah subhanaw taala blesses them with insight. Allah subhanaw taala blesses them with the ability to see things for what they really are a lot and douse them with wisdom. feeble youth in Edina Allah who and Toto Farah, where youth coffee has su u sub B hula houfy habila who do we will el sol. Such leashes are in mosques which Allah has ordered to be raised,
meaning they must be built and that his name be mentioned they are in exalting him within them in the morning and in the evenings. So we should also light up our homes with the vicar of Allah with Sunnah with the recitation of the Quran. We shouldn't just light up our homes with decorative lights. The real light is the light of a man. It is often of, of Allah, it is of, of righteous action of ibadah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said perform some of your prayers in your homes, and do not make them into graveyards as the Jews and Christians did. And the house in which the Quran is recited is seen by the inhabitants of the sky as stars are seen by the inhabitants of
Earth. You see in the month of Ramadan, a lot of people like to you know, create that festive feeling at home and brighten things up and put decorative lights and that's okay. But remember the real light in your home. What is really going to make your house shine and enlightened, is the presence of the vicar of Allah is the presence of the recitation of the Quran when Salah is performed together.
These are men whom neither commerce nor sale distracts from the remembrance of Allah and performance of prayer and giving of zakat. Here specifically, those men are being praised, who, despite their work are not distracted from Sunnah. They make time to remember Allah, they're particular about zakat. They fear a Day in which the hearts and eyes will fearfully turn about that Allah May reward them according to the best of what they did, and increase them from his bounty. And Allah gives provision to whom He wills without account. So sometimes people compromise on their ibadah out of fear of losing money. And we see here that Salah brings risk the cat also grows wealth and the
reward of the hereafter for being consistent in worship. That reward is endless. On the contrary,
But those who disbelieved their deeds are like a mirage in a lowland which are thirsty, one thinks is water. What deception, amusing themselves in their ignorance, until when he comes to it, he finds it is, he finds it is nothing, but finds a lot before him, and he will pay him in full his do And Allah is swift in account. So remember, this world is like a mirage, a person keeps chasing the water, but when he gets there it is nothing. And the actions of people who live with disbelief, their deeds are like a mirage, because they think they're doing something good. But when they make it to the author, when they see their record any they will, they will find nothing good to save
them. Or they're like darknesses. Within an unfathomable sea, it's very deep, which is covered by waves upon which are waves over which are clouds darknesses some of them upon others, when one puts out his hand there and he can hardly see it. A person is unable to even recognize himself, and he to whom Allah has not granted light. For him, there is no light. So we see that where some people have been given the light of a man, the light of Quran of guidance, there are other people who are in depths of darkness. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for nor allow majority calbee Nora, ask Allah for node. lm Tara, do you not see that Allah is Exalted by whomever is within the heavens and
the earth. And by the birds with wings spread? Meaning, even while they're flying, they're making this be each of them has known his means of prayer and exalting him. And Allah is Knowing of what they do. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and to Allah is the destination. Do you not see that Allah drives clouds, then he brings them together, then he makes them into a mess, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And he This is the benefit of coming together, of being gentle, of cooperating with each other small, small cloudlets that are scattered over the horizon can bring no rain. But when clouds gather together, they join together, then look
at the beautiful benefit that they bring. And he sends down from the sky mountains of clouds within witches hail, and he strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills, the flash of its lightning almost takes away the eyesight. Allah alternates the night and the day indeed, and that is a lesson for those who have vision. And he there's something to learn from rain also. Subhan Allah will love ohana kakula de Botton mimma, Allah has created every living creature from water, one water, and so much variety. And all of them are those that move on their bellies and of them are those that walk on two legs and all of them are those that walk on for. And then there's some that
have even more legs than that. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah over all things is competent. We have certainly sent down distinct verses, and Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path. But the hypocrites say, we have believed in Allah and in the messenger and we obey, meaning they verbally say that and their actions don't show at all, then a party of them turns away after that. And those are not believers. And when they're called to the words of Allah and His messenger to judge between them that look at what the Quran says, Let's follow that at once a party of them turns aside, meaning they refuse right away. But if the right is there as they come to him and
prompt obedience, meaning when they know that the ruling in the Quran is in their favor, they will come right away. But when they know that it is something that goes against their knifes against their desire, then they stay away. Is their disease in their hearts? Or have they doubted? Or do they fear that Allah will be unjust to them or his messenger? Rather it is they who are the wrongdoers? This is why they don't want to learn what the Koran says and they don't want to follow it.
last panel to give us sincere even real even the only statement of the true believers when they are called to Allah and His messenger to judge between them is that they say Samira, now will a partner we hear and we obey. And yes, sometimes there's that hesitation in the heart that fear that how can I bring about such a huge change? What will people say, you know, there are these fears. But remind yourself Samir now will Aparna to what color Allah Allah you know, put your trust in Allah. And look at Allah promise, what Allah eco home will mostly home and those are the successful, you're not going to miss out, you're not going to lose out. It is those who are the successful and whoever
obeys Allah and His messenger and fears Allah and His conscious of him were lucky. It is those who are the attainers look at this lovely home for his own. Who are these people
There are those who respond to Allah and His messenger. And they swear by Allah their strongest oaths that if you order them, they would go forth and Allah cause meaning there are some people who just like to please you with their words, say, Do not swear. Such obedience is known, obedience is visible, it is an action. Indeed, Allah is acquainted with that which you do, say, obey Allah and obey the messenger. But if you turn away, then upon him is only that duty with which he has been charged meaning to convey and upon you is that with which you have been charged, meaning you're supposed to now do your part, the ball is in your court, we're in totally ruled that they do, and if
you obey Him, you will be rightly guided, this is the standard of guidance, because who is who revealed the Quran and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam It is Allah. So, the one who follows the Prophet sallallahu wasallam obeys him, then only that person is guided, and there is not upon the messenger except their responsibility for clear notification, not to ensure whether people have obeyed or not. Allah has promised those who have believed among you, and unrighteous deeds, that He will surely grant them succession to authority upon the earth, any Allah will, will grant you success, just as He granted it to those before them, and that He will surely establish for them
they're in their religion, which he has preferred for them, and that He will surely substitute for them after their fear security for their worship me not associating anything with me. But whoever disbelieves after that, then those are the defiantly disobedient and established prayer and gives a cat and obey the messenger that you may receive mercy, Lord Allah come to her moon, these verses are so encouraging, so uplifting, never think that the disbelievers are causing failure to Allah upon the earth, their refuge will be the fire and how wretched the destination, all you will have believed, let those whom your right hands possess, and those who have not yet reached purity among
you, meaning your little children, let them ask permission of you before entering meaning your room at three times, meaning even little children should not walk in, or open the bedroom door whenever they feel like it, which three times specifically before the dawn prayer, and secondly, when you put aside your clothing for rest at noon, and thirdly, after the night prayer, these are three times of privacy for you. How beautiful is our religion, where a husband and wife are given privacy even from their own children Subhan Allah. So, this shows us how important the relationship between a husband and wife is because only when you know that that connection is solid, then the family can be can be
taken care of. And this shows us that
you know, parents have to be careful you need they should not undress before their little children either. There is no blame upon you, nor upon them beyond these three times, meaning the rest of the day, any they should have children should have the freedom to call in and out, for they continually circulate among you, some of you among others. Thus does Allah make clear to you the verses and Allah is Knowing and wise. You see some people, some parents when they call sleep with their children, it's fine, but then any you have to make sure that the that the marriage is not being compromised, the relationship between husband and wife is not being compromised because of the
children that are co sleeping, and the boundaries have to be drawn sooner or later. So these are important instructions that our last panel Tara has given for our own benefit. And when the children among you reach puberty, let them ask permission, meaning at all times when entering the house, or entering the bedroom of a married couple, as those before them have done. Thus does Allah make clear to you his verses and Allah is Knowing and wise, and women of post menstrual age who have no desire for marriage, there is no blame upon them for putting aside their outer garments. outer garment is referring to the hijab, you need the jilbab or you know there are by etc. The big shawl that a woman
wears to cover herself and an elderly woman who is no longer expecting that she will ever get married any because of the physical difficulty. It's okay for her to not wear a big hijab anymore, but not displaying adornment so they can remove their shell but not display their beauty. So this means that she has makeup on and jewelry and nice colorful clothes and you know the hair is also done. And she's got a young spirit and she's got to observe the rulings which are for a young body, but to modestly refrain from that is better for them and Allah is hearing and knowing there is not upon the blind any constraint, nor upon the lame constraint nor upon the ill constraint or upon
yourselves when you eat from your own houses or the houses of your father.
Subhan Allah, you see, first people with disabilities are mentioned, meaning they should be included in our social gatherings that we cannot, you know, leave them out that all because they are different or because, you know, they will cause a problem where we have to make special accommodations. And because of that we're not welcoming them. No, every single person should be welcome in social gatherings. So it begins with those who are generally neglected. People with disabilities they should be included, they should not be left out. So there is no blame. If you eat from your houses, meaning your own houses or the houses of your fathers or the houses of your
mother's or the houses of your brothers or the houses of your sisters or the houses of your father's brothers, or the houses of your father, sisters, or the houses of your mother's brothers, or the houses of your mother's sisters or from houses whose keys you possess are from the houses of your friend, the friend is also mentioned, there is no blame upon you, whether you eat together or separately. But when you enter houses, give greetings of peace upon each other, a greeting from Allah bless it and good meaning when you enter a house whether it is your own, or it is your friends where you have been invited or your family's. In. He says Salaam when you enter, don't enter like a
thief say salam. Thus does Allah make clear to you the verses of ordinance that you may understand. So we see here that specifically eating has been mentioned that there is no blame if you eat from the houses of these people that are mentioned here. But if you sound that, you know, for example, you go to your brother's house and you're eating cheesecake out of his refrigerator. If you realize that he is not exactly comfortable sharing that cheesecake with you then respect that. But notice how the houses of your children has not been mentioned here because your children houses are like your own. You have the right to eat from your kids house, whatever you want. And the friend is also
mentioned here because sometimes friends become even closer than relatives. And there's nothing wrong with that. Of course a person cannot neglect the rights of the relatives. But the friends that Allah has blessed you with any they should also be cherished. In normal miuna Latina am an OB la hora suli. The believers are only those who believe in Allah and His messenger. And when they're meeting with him for a matter of common interest, do not depart until they have asked his permission, meaning they don't just leave like that. Indeed, those who asked your permission or Prophet sallallahu earlier send them those are the ones who believe in Allah and His messenger. Now
those who just disappear without taking permission. So when they ask your permission for something of their affairs, then give permission to whom you will among them and ask forgiveness for them of Allah. Why ask forgiveness because even one's work one's responsibility. This is not correct. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Do not make your calling of the messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another meaning when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called you to something, don't consider that as a you know, as an invitation from somebody else take that call very, very seriously. Already, Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others, and the
hypocrites will do this. So let those beware who descend from the prophets order, lest fitna strike them or a painful punishment. Meaning when a person knowingly disobey is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than they are at risk at risk of fitna unquestionably to Allah belongs whatever isn't the heavens and the earth. Already he knows that upon which you stand on the arleigh MoMA and tomorrow LA and knows the day when they will be returned to Him and He will inform them of what they have done and Allah is Knowing of all things. So we should make sure that our matter with Allah subhanaw taala is clear. So total for con Miss Miller who Rahmani Raheem Tarbell Raka Latina Zettel
for Connor Allah Abdi he, Leah Khun La la la Vina the raw, bless it is he who said down the criterion, the Quran upon his servant, that he may be to the world's a warner Quran is for all he to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He is the one who has sent the Quran and who has not taken a sun and has not had a partner in dominion, and has created each thing and determined it with precise determination. And you see, this determination means that the creation is not random. It's not haphazard. Everything is planned and decreed and decided from before. In fact, we learned that Allah subhanaw taala decreed the other of the creation 50,000 years before he created
the heavens and the earth, but they have taken besides him Gods which create nothing while they are created and possess not for themselves any harm or benefit and possess not power to cause death or life or resurrection. And those who disbelieve say, this is not accepted.
falsehood he invented, meaning they don't believe in the Quran, and another people assisted him in it, but they have committed an injustice and a lie. And they say legends of the former peoples which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon. So they doubt the truthfulness of the Quran say, it has been revealed by he who knows every secret within the heavens and the earth. Indeed, he is ever Forgiving and Merciful. People don't have knowledge of themselves with which they can guide one another. Allah is the one who knows everything. And he is the one who has sent this revelation. And they say, what is the? And they say, what is this messenger that eats
food and walks in the markets and he should have been some superhuman. Why was there not sent down to him an angel? So he would be with him and Warner? meaning how come an angel doesn't accompany him all the time, an angel whom we can see. You see, the prophets were humbled men, they were human beings and their honor, their dignity was in being humans, and at the same time, slaves to Allah subhanaw taala. So yes, the prophets of Allah ate food. They walked in the markets, meaning they earned their own income. They weren't arrogant. They were humble servants to Allah, or why is it not? Or why is not a treasure presented to him from heaven? Or does he not have a garden from which
he eats? And the wrongdoer say, you follow not but a man affected by magic? Look, how this trike for you comparisons, but they have strayed. So they cannot find a way meaning they keep changing their mind. They are themselves confused. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is comforted here to Baraka, lady, bless it is he who if He willed, good have made for you something better than that he could have made for you gardens beneath which rivers flow meaning in this world and could make for you palaces, but they have denied the hour. And we have prepared for those who deny that our a blaze, and the demands of such people are not fulfilled. When the Hellfire sees them from a distant
place, they will hear its fury and roaring. And when they're thrown into a narrow place they're in bound in chains, they will cry out there upon for destruction, they will be told Do not cry to stay for one destruction, but cry for much destruction. say is that better, or the garden of eternity which is promised to the righteous, it will be for them a reward and destination final home. For them there in is whatever they wish while abiding eternally, it is ever upon your Lord a promise worthy to be requested and mentioned the day he will gather them, and that which they worship besides Allah? And we'll say did you mislead bees, my servants? Or did they themselves stray from
the way they will say Exalted are You it was not for us to take besides you.
They will say Exalted are You it was not for us to take besides you any allies, but you provided comforts for them and their father is until they forgot the message and became a people ruin. So they will deny you in what you say. And you cannot avert punishment or find help and whoever commits injustice among you know vehicle who are either urban Kabira we will make him taste a great punishment. And we did not send before you will profit any of the messengers except that they ate food and walked in the markets they were human. And we have made some of you people as trial for others. Would you borrow welcome liberal in fitness and does be rune Allah is asking us will you
have patience, will cannot have bookable sera And ever is your Lord seeing. So we see here that some people are literally at trial for others. Sometimes this is within the same household where certain individuals don't get along. They're constantly a source of trial, a test for one another. Parents are a test for their children and children are a test for their parents. And then this test is also outside of the house where a rich person can be a test for a poor person, any you keeps looking at him that Oh, he has so much and I don't so he becomes envious. Sometimes a poor person can be a test for the rich, the Why is he begging me he's lazy, He's useless. The sick person, the sick person can
be a test for the healthy that, you know, they have to be looked after. Now, so many people are a test for one another. Artists be rude. Are you going to be patient? Meaning Are you going to be patient over the hurtful things that people say to you? And this is a fact that people as long as they're together? You know, yes, they will love each other, but they will also be a trial for one another. So no matter who it is that you sit with that you work with, that you live with that you marry, there will be problems, there will be annoyances, there will be hurt and irritation. So Allah asks us a tough
To be rude, you better because workout not bookable sera your Lord is watching me Allah subhanaw taala not make us a trial for one another meaning a trial that is very difficult. Now Allah subhanaw taala grant is patience with each other.

Okay, I will be laying the shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So I am number 27 and surah Noor or you will have believed not enter houses other than your own houses until you are asserting welcome and greet their inhabitants that is best for you, perhaps you will be reminded.
Okay, so which house Are we
allowed to enter and which houses are we not allowed to enter? without permission? Alas, mother has clarified all of that. Okay. So when we enter a house other than our own house, what are two things that we're required to do according to this idea?
Have Said the day of judgment has multiple names. Okay. So it's the same thing. There's no difference. It's the same thing. Yes, seek permission.
seek permission and second thing Yeah, announce yourself like let them know who you are.
Right. So then, basically, we would knock
and then introduce ourselves.
And then if they let us in, then we would go in right. So as long as they call my name is so and so I'm here for this reason.
And then inshallah, after that, we can enter. Yes, definitely say Salaam.
is like a reminder it's me won't work. It's me. Subhan Allah is very confusing. There's actually a specific Hadees of the prophets I saw them telling the companion not to see me.
Yes upon Allah, how straightforward and our Deen is. So greet their inhabitants. So next thing was to say Salaam. Right? So when should we greet them?
So first of all, when we are actually this should be switched, but we were taking permission. Okay, well, we're taking permission. So we would start with Salaam. When someone says Salaam what happens immediately?
we relax, right?
Yes. Outside of the door. Yes. So Islam alaikum. I am so and so I'm here for this reason. And then if we are given permission, then again, what do we do
when we're entering inside the door?
Yes, again say Salaam. Okay, so our Deen is teaching us to say Salaam very often what is Salaam?
What is the meaning of Salaam?
Peace? Yes. So can we say a Salaam Alaikum to someone and then get into a fight with them?
Or cause them some kind of harm? No, right? It doesn't make sense. It completely completely contradicts what we're saying.
Okay, so now something to analyze.
Yes, person security from any harm from us. Exactly. So how do we enter other people's homes? Okay, so this is a time for us to honestly reflect on ourselves. Or you whether we live in, you know, a house that's
suppiler has a gated area or if we're going to a house that has just a small, you know, gay, you know, fabric door, it doesn't matter, right? What what type of house we're entering. We have to observe these rules at all times. Right? So how do I work walk into someone else's home? Do I walk right in?
Do I say oh, this person is expecting me. I should just walk right in. They told me seven o'clock. It's 701. I should just walk in. It's okay. I'm allowed. No seek permission. Right? Exactly. We don't know sometimes people invite people at 7pm for dinner, for example, but they are not ready at all.
Yes, even if you spoke on the phone still seek permission.
Right? And so check. Do I just walk into other people's houses? Even if it's my parents home even if it's my children's home? It's my in law's home? It's my sister's home. It's my brother's home. It doesn't matter. Right? It's my best friend. It doesn't matter.
Last winter is teaching us the etiquettes of walking into someone else's home. Yeah, it's possible. They're not dressed. Yes, manners are being taught. And what do we do you have a child opens the door. We just say okay, the kid open the door. So it means I can go inside? I know exactly. Wait, ask for an adult.
I say Salaam loudly so the people inside can understand that the door has been opened. Right?
How should we stand at the door?
Should we stand right in front of the door?
Yeah, on the side Exactly. Stand on the side. So that
you know if a child opens the door for example, then we're not looking inside someone's house without permission. Yes. Yeah. looking outside.
No peeking. Definitely. Right But what if it's an emergency?
right you're not almost happen. Good guess what if it's an emergency then what?
If you know that
someone has called you because of an emergency. So then what should you do?
Yes, just say Salaam and then you can enter. Okay, so our Dean always has exceptions. There's always exceptions. So if it's a true emergency and we all know what a true emergency is like a medical emergency for example, then we should enter and not wait and do all the Subhanallah
you know Salaam and not we should say Salaam but we don't have to wait for permission and someone to open the door and all of this. If we're praying Salah the person needs to wait.
Okay, then they should wait.
Until you open the door. So the sooner is to knock three times.
Try knock three times. Not one at once, right? Knock Knock, knock but knock gives some time in the middle, then another knock and then some more time in the middle and then another knock
yes through the ambulance if they don't want you to move the person.
So that is best for you a loss panda tells us and I try his best for us to follow these rules that have been given to not just barge into someone's home to wait to say Salaam.
Yes, use common sense.
Yes, for our benefit, our own benefit maintains privacy. Yes, it's manners. Yes. So if people observe this when they're visiting us, our privacy is taken care of. And when we absorb these advocates when visiting someone else, their privacy is protected. Right. So we don't accidentally see someone in some state that would cause them embarrassment.
Yes. And secondly is
for our own piety. Yes.
Some good angry when we know they're inside and still don't open?
Yeah, we'll get to that in just one second. Right. It's a type of higher ease for both parties.
Exactly. You don't know what kind of conversation someone's in or state they're in. Right? So seek permission, make sure they know who you are. And that you're that you're here, right? Some people are very quiet and the way they walk is just Subhanallah the way
their habit is to walk in a very quiet manner. So sometimes you don't even know that person's in the house. Right? So this is not correct. You should make your presence known. And when you walk into any house, whether it's your own or someone else's, make sure that the people know that you were there
and say Salaam right always say Salaam
if you do not find anyone there in do not enter.
Do not enter them until permission has been given to you. And if it is said to you go back then go back. It is pure for you and Allah is Knowing of what you do. Okay, so you came to the door, and you knocked.
And no one answered. Then what? keep banging the door. start calling start texting, start shouting.
Call their family. Their sister who lives half an hour away. Hey, I'm at her door. She's not answering. No. Right.
Exactly. Go back. So you don't have permission. So you cannot enter?
Yes. leave without minding. Exactly.
Yeah, come back at another time, bad manners. So perhaps the person is in the middle of something great, and they cannot entertain guests. So they're not going to answer the door. And even if you know they're inside, it is not your right to enter their home without their permission.
That's fine. It's their home. They don't have to answer if they don't want to. Right so if someone doesn't want you in their home, then you have no right to enter it. Yes, perhaps they're not ready to welcome you.
guests. Yes. So So Pinilla les patho is basically telling us that our home is our own property.
Right? And no one has the right to enter it unless we want them to come in.
What about later? Why didn't you open it? So inshallah have some kind of a
ready answer for them? Especially if you know that someone's going to ask you that. Yes, culturally, people don't understand. But we have to understand that when we know something is right. And it is a very inconvenient time. We don't have to answer the door. Right? Unless pantalla is the one we need to please right at the end. And so is Allah Subhana. Allah going to be upset with us if we didn't open the door because of some reason when we didn't want that person to enter?
No, right because the AI is giving us permission.
So Allah, Allah is not going to be upset with us for that.
Okay, so the answer is the same for everyone just look at just read the IR.
Okay? We don't need to be confused, right? And if it is said to you go back then go back, it is pure for you and Allah is Knowing of what you do.
it is up to us now the same thing if we go to someone's house, we know they're inside, we can hear them, maybe their kids are playing and we can hear it and they're not answering the door, then should we be upset?
No, definitely not.
Because they have a full right to refuse entry.
Because that is not a good time for them for whatever reason.
Yes, people do get upset because they haven't studied these iahc.
Yes, exactly. They don't know.
There's no condition. So am I given this idea?
Yeah, it's possible, they might be praying. So if you know you're expecting someone, right? And you know that you might be praying when they come? Let them know. So just if I'm praying, I won't answer. So just wait a few minutes. Right. We've been learning in all of these previous sessions, how we need to inform people. Right? So let them know that if you come I might be praying. Just wait a few minutes.
Yes, a gift card of this is true.
That's true. Yes. It's our job to inform others about this idea. Yes.
Okay, so it is pure for you? How is this pure for us?
All of these commands that we've been studying so far.
Yes, yes, you need permission to enter your children's home.
improves our relationships, doesn't it? Now we're all worried about certain people that we know are going to be upset.
Right, everyone, when we talked about not letting someone in? Right, everyone's mind went to certain people who would be upset, right? But imagine if both sides panela follow the follow the rules that last panda has sent
our relationships would improve, right? Because nobody would be upset, everyone would be happy with each other because they know that this is their right.
Right. And again, secondly, it is better for our own selves. Again, you don't catch people at a wrong time. You don't
go in and disturb them, nor are you putting them in an embarrassing situation.
So it is pure for us. There is no blame upon you for entering houses not in inhabited in which there is convenience for you. And Allah knows what you reveal and what you conceal.
Okay, so houses that are not inhabited are basically public places, right? So do I need permission every time I enter my school or the masjid or the library or the grocery store? Wouldn't that be interesting? For everyone knocked before entering a grocery store or mall? hospital?
Right. So all of these things, all of these places are public places. And we don't need to seek permission.
Um, yes, they need to seek permission before entering the house. Right? So they can't just tell you they're coming. They have to ask you if they can come.
Yes, definitely. We have to follow the protocols of the place
I was upon Allah, you have a relative's just pops in.
Last month Allah protect. Okay, and so Allah tells us in which there is a convenience for you, right? So all of these places that are mentioned here, and there's many others as well are just places of convenience. And so we can enter at any time. But does that mean that now that I know that this idea lets me enter places that are not inhabited at any time? Should I be spending all my time at the mall when they open?
Or should I be just going to the grocery store every day? No. So kind of like with a purpose. Right? So they're there for our convenience but Subhanallah we need to have a purpose in our lives.
Right. And Allah knows what you reveal and what you conceal. So we have to observe the places, even in public places, whatever rules there are, right? So for example, I'm sure everyone's seen, there are signs where it says private, no entrance. Right? So maybe there's offices of the employees.
Right? Yes, employees only.
Right. So this was at 29.
Yeah, even for parking very true, some parking spots are marked for handicapped or for employees only. So such places, then we have to observe the rules of the place. Okay. So whatever place we're in, make sure if there are certain rules there, we observe them. Okay, so we're not
supposed to entering these places. And when it comes to whether someone opened the door or not, and when it comes to these private places, is it okay to peek inside?
Is it okay to just take a quick look
at what's going on? Why are they not answering the door? Or why am I not allowed in this area? No, right? This will come under spying and inshallah we'll come to those.
Oh, you will have believed let those whom your right hands possess and those who have not yet reached puberty among you ask permission of you before entering at three times before the dawn prayer and when you put aside your clothing for rest at noon, and after the night prayer, these are three times of privacy for you. There is no blame upon you nor upon them beyond these periods for the continuous continually circulate among you, some of you among others, Thus does Allah make clear to you the vs and Allah is Knowing and wise.
Okay, so this is iron number 58. If certain more, so we just jumped a few if. So, who needs to seek permission before coming into your room?
yes, the people who work for you
and your children. Okay, so these are young children who have not yet reached puberty. So what are we learning from this? These are young kids? When do we have to start the therapy of children after they become teenagers?
Is that when we start teaching them?
Right? Anyone who works for us?
very young age? Yes. From a very young age. Yeah, before seven. Right? Certain things need to be taught. And they will learn from our behavior from what we do because kids copy.
Great kids just copy what the others in the house are doing. Right? So even a two year old can be taught to knock and then enter. Yes, they understand toddlers definitely.
Now kids are exposed to many things. Yes, very true. We have to start very early on.
Okay, so we're being told that they need to seek permission before they enter and this is in our own houses in our bedrooms. Okay, and what specific times is the last pillar set for this? before the dawn prayer meeting before fudger Scylla.
Right. And then, so that's the aim and when you put aside your clothing for rest at noon, right, so this is the noon time?
Yes. After the heart. And then after the night prayer meaning pm after Isha prayer.
Yes. So these are three times when Allah is giving us permission to close the door, and that we should not be disturbed. But if someone needs to come in, they should knock and come in.
Right? Yeah, of course, there's different situations right for different households, but this is specifically referring to when
the room door is closed. So even if they share the room, if the door is closed, they need to knock.
Okay, so it's not about
the sharing part. It's about that the door is closed and someone needs to enter.
Okay, beyond these periods, for they continue, continually circulate among you. So other than these three times the door should be open. And even if it's closed, they have permission to walk in. Right so we need to be aware
As well of these times, so we need to be aware that okay, it's a third time so that means anyone can walk in at any time.
the known time is after the her.
Okay, so the next is and when the when the children among you reach puberty, okay, so these are for the older kids, let them ask permission at all times as those before you have done this does Allah make clear to you is vs and Allah is Knowing and wise. Okay, so for the young kids, they still had some times where they could come in, but the older kids
let them ask permission at all times.
Right? Yeah. So general rule should be in the house, right? If the door shut, knock.
And doors shut, knock. That's a general rule.
Okay, so this is what are we being told that we cannot enter the room without permission? So one of you is asking, Can we enter our child's house without permission? What do you all think of that? If we if we cannot enter a bedroom without permission?
Yes. So our being perfect protects our privacy.
Okay, so when the older kids, the older kids need to knock at all times, right? Yes. So the younger kid might barge in, so be careful. Okay.
So then something for us to check. How do I enter the rooms of my family members? Right? Do I walk in without permission? And if they don't open the door, if they don't respond, then do I spy on them peek on them without permission.
Right. So then this also applies to parents when they are walking to their kids rooms as well.
Right? So the same thing if the door shut, we need to knock and announce that we are walking in.
Okay, and then of course, parents have all these issues, then, you know, I don't know what my kid is doing. I want I need to,
you know, basically popping on them so that they catch them by surprise, so I can see what they're doing. It's basically, we need to teach them DACA.
Right, you know, when a household situation not necessarily to knock three times but then again, maybe they're in the bathroom. Right? Maybe they're in the shower. Yes, don't even straw either. Very true. So honestly, you know, these days, the,
the gadgets and all of these things that the kids are on, they can easily hide things from their parents, right? So it's not about what they're doing physically. surbana like, it's everything's online now. Right. So if our child doesn't have Taqwa, then they can do anything anywhere. Right? Us surprising them and popping into the room isn't going to change anything.
Yeah, you can monitor them very true.
To enter the room. Okay, so not necessarily that you have to knock three times right, there needs to be some understanding of what's happening in the house too. Right? So if it's an older child, then if they are not answering right, then you need to perhaps knock three times.
Right? But if it's a younger kid, of course, one knock mommy's coming in, you know, is sufficient.
So we have to kind of look at our household dynamic as well.
Yes, if their door is shut, we should observe their privacy. How will they learn to protect our privacy if we aren't protecting their privacy?
Yes, even when we're entering
in the same house, this is what we're talking about here.
So they will learn from example.
Okay, and so these are less commands and so they've What do they reflect less kind of those knowledge and wisdom?
You Yes, definitely starts from home and then it will inshallah branch out to outside.
Yes, mutual respect and communication. Yes.
I'm there though. So inshallah
we'll upload these slides for you all on the portal, and we will inshallah meet again tomorrow.
So jacmoe phone everyone for your participation.
So MLS panda enabled us to implement what we've learned, right some very very important if we're discussed today and so in shuttler May He give us the ability to implement all of that. So until tomorrow and Shabazz panicle on will be hungry question Allah, Allah, Allah and stuff with regard to hula Islam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
