00:00:05--> 00:00:08

Sit I'm on equal walk McCullough, you America.

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

How's everyone doing today?

00:00:15--> 00:00:21

Good and hamdulillah that's good. So how did your worship go yesterday day before yesterday at night?

00:00:22--> 00:01:05

Good and Hello, today we're going to talk about that again inshallah because earlier we talked about a chapter to do with the last 10 days. Now we're going to talk about only the odd nights. All right, so Is everyone ready? inshallah So, get ready for references and inshallah, why is it important and what what to do during these days inshallah. So let's begin. Now how do I know Salli ala rasulillah? He's Corinne. Amanda right there all the Villa immunoassay Guan ology, Bismillah R. Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish. Ronnie. Sorry, were you silly? Omri. washpool. oxidatively. Nice, Sunny, you're only Robin as a warm for cleanup. Indeed. And may Allah give us the correct understanding of the deed. And

00:01:05--> 00:01:29

they'll enable us to seek local color and get letters of color and get forgiveness. I mean, so hamdulillah Today's topic is a beautiful one. And you're going to talk about the night of power or the Night of Decree. So first of all, we need to see why do we call it what we call it? Right? So first of all, we're going to see why is it called Laila the mother? And

00:01:30--> 00:02:16

and what is the mean by Father, alright, the first thing you look at other scholars, they explained other in a different like, in many ways, so I'm going to give you a few meanings inshallah. So jot them down, I don't have them on slides, and it's not from the book. So, the other can have a lot of meanings according to our scholars, some scholars, they define clutter in the context of destiny, and they said the other is referring to decree destiny. And the meaning is that this is the night when a person's sustenance, lifespan and other critical matters, they are decided for the coming year. And in support of this, we have a narration, it is Abdullah bin ambassador, the other one he

00:02:16--> 00:03:01

said, It is written in Oman, keytab, during light of the other, what is on multitap levels, so it is written in Oman kita, or we can say the heavenly copy of the Quran. During later other word shall come to pass in the following year of good and evil, sustenance and lifespan. So matters to do with whatever we're going to go through in terms of our risk our lifespan and good and evil. And he also mentioned, I've been obsessed with Iran, that the pilgrimage of the pilgrim also is decided on this night. So like who is going to go for Hajj in 2020 we're going to go for Hajj in 2021 that is also decided on this night. So inshallah you can include that to your list that Oh Allah Take me for Hajj

00:03:01--> 00:03:28

insha Allah. And I'll have an advisory. He also had the same view, even majapahit and cortada. And they said all the affairs of lifespan leads creation and provision they're decreed on later to other in the month of Ramadan. That's what's called later the Father. Mm. And now we also mentioned that it was named Laila the father. Why, because there was a night of judgment and the Night of

00:03:30--> 00:04:14

Decree. And this is the popular meaning you can see, because a lot of scholars, they have the meaning. There's another meaning as well that has to do with power. So because power also means power, right? While there are lots of another as being a father, so other scholars they defined other as power, indicating the greatness of the night, indicating the might have the night as well. So even if I mean Rahim, Allah He said, a person would attain the reward of the night Even if he has no knowledge of it. This is because Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever stands in prayer during the literal other with faith and hope will be forgiven. So even if you don't know it's the night of

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

father but you are doing your worship, you're gonna get the reward for that or benefit of that.

00:04:19--> 00:04:36

And Rasul Allah says, No, he did not tell us about you know, when exactly it is, right, we know our nights, right? And so it's not a condition of forgiveness that you need to know when it is the condition of forgiveness is that you were worshiping that night, inshallah.

00:04:37--> 00:04:41

Also, there's a third meaning the third meaning is to do with restriction.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

So, what does he mean by restriction because this is to show that there will be so many angels on that night on the earth, that it will be restricted. Like they will be it will be really tight, you can say, and these angels they will need of course permission of Allah.

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

panel data. So that also shows some type of restriction that who can go who cannot go. And

00:05:07--> 00:05:22

this is also mentioned in our hobbies, and inshallah we're going to show you the Hadees in a bit. So however, we just move on to three main meanings you can say. One is the Cree destiny, the second is power. And the third is restriction because there are so many angels on the earth

00:05:23--> 00:06:06

on that night. So what what else do we know about this night? It's an extremely virtuous night. It is a night in which the Koran, a book of guidance for all the mankind was revealed when it comes to the other scriptures of the past as well. They were also you know, revealed in the month of Ramadan. But Quran was revealed on the Night of Decree. So it is called a night, which is better than 1000 months late Laila to Audrey hieromonk Alfie Shahar as it comes into the other. There's a full surah dedicated for this night, and it is a night full of peace and tranquility until further there is an entire chapter of the Quran as we talked about it revealed about the excellence and the virtue of

00:06:06--> 00:06:29

this night believers they search for this night is spent the last 10 odd nights or did they spend last 10 nights all together to look for this night because of how late every time there's a problem. Some people are fasting a day before some fasting A day after and they're always confused. So it's better to you know, inshallah, worship all these 10 nights, so that we don't miss this precious night

00:06:31--> 00:06:48

into the brain insalubrious he, about him It comes that he kept he accompanied by uncountable other angels. And they descended, and they descend upon earth during this night. So they come every year on this night, a lot of angels with Angel debris.

00:06:50--> 00:07:02

And how do they come, they bring Allah's mercy. So this is something which we really need, we all are in need of Allah's mercy, especially this year, right? It's a panel more than ever, so it comes in with a hammer

00:07:03--> 00:07:38

in them Mila EGA. Indeed, the angels who are on earth during that night are more a number than the number of pebbles on the earth Subhanallah they are more than the pebbles. So when you look at the pebbles around you, you can't even count them. So there will be more angels than that Subhanallah on that night. So that's why it's like a beautiful, very serene night, it's very different, the feeling would be very different inshallah. And every good deed done during this night is better than 1000 months worth of good deeds.

00:07:39--> 00:08:22

It's like someone tells you that just work for one night, work for eight hours. That's it, and you are going to get paid for entire life. If you're going to live for at three years or so. Just work for one night, and your sustenance is taken care of. You are going to get your way you're going to get your pay every month, every if you're getting weekly, but you don't have to worry about it again somehow. So one night is going to get get you the reward of 1000 plus months of worship, it doesn't mean that you don't worship the other days. It's just a reward. Your obligations are still your obligations, you have to fulfill them. But imagine your record the deeds, imagine your status in the

00:08:22--> 00:09:05

sight of Allah. What else do we need to panela also we learn about this night that it is better than 1000 months from a Hades as well. So we know it from Quran and now we know it from so he mother that this month has come to you. And in it there is a night that is better than 1000 months. It doesn't say equal 2000 months, it says better. So at 3.3 or four which people calculate it is 4000 months. So it's more than that. Whoever is deprived of it is deprived of all goodness, and no one is the private with goodness except the one who is truly deprived. So May Allah save us from this type of deprivation. Because we don't want to be deprived of this precious night is just one night, just

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

worship inshallah.

00:09:07--> 00:09:51

And we should see clearly through color in the odd nights of the last 10 days of Ramadan. So it's very, very hard for us to do all 10 days, so at least odd nights. So as it comes in Hades hunter he Muslim, seek it in the last 10 nights. If one of our new shows slackness and weakness in the earlier part of Ramadan, it should not be allowed to prevail upon him in the last week Subhan Allah so now if you have missed out on the 21st or maybe you were too lazy, or maybe you could not get in the more of night worship Alhamdulillah you still have the last seven days. So inshallah This is what it is saying, Don't slack now and make the most of the last seven nights.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

And it's a means of expiation when we pray during the Laila to holler abou right or the last one he narrated was

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

A lot a lot more insulin said, Whoever establishes prayers during the night of our father with sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's reward, and not to show off and not to tell them not to tell people on social media, that I'm feeling very good. It's a beautiful night. It's not for that it's not to tell people about it. Rather, it's to focus on your eye rather, and hope to attain Allah's mercy, sorry and hope to attain all those rewards, all his past sins will be forgiven to things he man and deserve and all previous sins will be forgiven. When worshiping together, we should, you know, refrain, refrain from making loud noises and talking too much or idle talk or

00:10:43--> 00:11:27

arguments and we should focus entirely on our worship. So it's better to you know, take it like your individual time and your own time and your me time and don't talk to anyone without any need. So if you'd have to ask someone for something, make it brief, keep it to a few words possible inshallah. So that you can use this night for this we had more for a better more for the eyes more inshallah, and more focused on a better inshallah. And Scala when it comes to exactly when it is we don't know the night some people when they claim it's 23rd, or 25th, or 27th. And a handle I can be depends on where they are and when In which year. So we shouldn't start thinking about one night we should try

00:11:27--> 00:12:04

to seek it from, from among these nights, insha Allah, because Allah wa sallahu wa sallam, he went out to inform people about the date of night of Father, there happened, some people are two Muslims, they were fighting with each other, wrestle alongside our head and said, I came out to inform you about the night of our father, but so and so and so and so they were fighting, they were quarreling with each other. The news about it has been taken away from me, and hopefully it will be better for you. So hopefully this situation is better for you. Because now you can search for it in Ramadan.

00:12:06--> 00:12:52

So what are the signs of night of repeat a lot of people they're worried about it, and Subhanallah all of these signs are the signs afterwards, or while we are worshipping, we won't know beforehand. So in order to know if it was the night, we have to worship the night inshallah. So some of the signs the first one was will Allah sallallahu Sallam said, on the morning following a little further, the sun does not have any race, as if it were a brass dish until is right until it rises up SubhanAllah. So right in the beginning, when the sun is rising, you won't notice any rays later on a wolf, it will become like it will look like a normal one. So it's right at the sunrise if you want

00:12:52--> 00:13:33

to notice then inshallah you will be able to see the difference. Also above or below 100 a year reported, we were talking about relative color in the presence of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And he said, Who amongst you remembers the night of other when the mood arose, and it was like the edge of a big plate. So the first sign was to do with sun and this sign is to do with the moon. And there is another sign that the night is going to be very pleasant. So the night of cover is pleasant. It's neither hot and neither cold. The sun rises on it morning with faint redness. So it won't be too bright. You wouldn't be able to see it. But you know sometimes you want to look at

00:13:33--> 00:13:55

sunrise but because it's like very very bright. You cannot focus on it you cannot have you cannot even look at it for a few seconds. With this sun on that morning after later the color would be faint redness so it will be easy for you to look at it. Another report, we learn that zil

00:13:56--> 00:14:38

rhodiola when he reported I heard from obey even girl, a statement made by Abdullah bin Massoud, in which he said whoever stands up in prayer for the year will find the night of color. Like if you were good with your prayers, outside Ramadan as well then inshallah you will be able to find a night of father. This is like a gift. Obi rhodiola himself said by Allah the one except when there is no God, that little other is in Ramadan. So it is in Ramadan. And then he said by Allah, I know the night it is the night on which Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam commanded us to pray. It preceded the morning of 27th and its indication was that the sun rose with the whiteness on that day having no

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

race. So again focus on the science and not not focus on the date because it may vary year to year and Allah knows best. That's what we were told to seek it and look for it and worship You know, our best during these nights insha Allah so it's a to do list is very similar to the to do list we have done before. Just take a screenshot and you all know that all

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Already, so just take a screenshot of that as well. So panic a lot more we have bigger eye shadow Illa Illa illa Anta as the hero governor today Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:16:06--> 00:17:00

are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish roughly soldering away a silly emri workflow yuroke data melissani of gahoo coli Allahumma who the Colby was sadly Sani was ruled supreme at the Colby Armenia robola alameen just number 26 surah cough Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Rahim have Meem then Zilla will kitabi mean Allah healer Aziz al Hakim, how meme, the revelation of the book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise, we did not create the heavens and earth and what is between them, except in truth and for a specified term. But those who disbelieve from that of which they are warned, are turning

00:17:00--> 00:17:51

away at the beginning of the sutra, just like at the beginning of many other Sutras, Allah subhanaw taala praises his book, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us of the fact that this Kitab this book is truly from him, that it is Allah who has revealed this book gradually, and Allah is Allah Aziz the Exalted in Might. So this book is also mighty, and he is ever wise and Hakeem, so this book is full of wisdom. So remember, that this Quran, this book has come to prevail, not to be prevailed over. It has come to judge not to be judged by people, it has come to guide not to be led by people. So we must benefit from the Quran. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by this book,

00:17:51--> 00:18:37

Allah will exalt some people and degrade others. Meaning through this book, those people who believe in it, who follow it, that Allah subhanaw taala will honor them, because Allah is a disease, and his book is also a disease, it is honorable, and so those who live by it, that Allah subhanaw taala will also honor them, and those who reject it, those who turn away from it, those who fail to benefit from it, then this will be a source of their degradation. And also we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever places the Quran before himself, it will lead him to paradise. And whoever places it behind his back, then it will drive him to hellfire. So we must believe in

00:18:37--> 00:19:28

this book in its correctness in its benefit in its divine source, and we must reflect upon it, learn it and follow it because giving this book its due attention and respecting it is in fact part of showing respect to Allah azza wa jal, even Masaru radi Allahu anhu said that in a cooler, more at the bin, you have a huge edible, that every individual worthy of respect, loves that he has received that he is treated with due respect. Every individual worthy of respect, loves that he is treated with due respect. And he said what in that other Billa Hill Quran and indeed respect for Allah is the Quran, meaning, the way you show up to Allah is by showing up to the book of Allah by paying

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

regard to his book, and that is by believing in it by following it by reflecting upon it by learning it. And Shelton's focus is to keep people away from the Quran. To keep them in ignorance. iblue Josie Rahim Allah said that you should know that the first trick of shaitaan to prevent them from that the first trick of shaytaan is to prevent them from learning it is to prevent them from accessing your alien. Why? Because knowledge is a light

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

So when their lamps are extinguished, they are left to wander about and stumble in darkness. So this is what shaitan wants that people should stay in darkness. And Allah subhanaw taala sent his book to bring us out of darkness. So shaitan also makes learning the Quran difficult for people. So for example, edun who baileigh Rahim Allah He said that off the plots of shaytaan is to turn people away from reflecting upon the Quran, because he knows that the Quran is guidance. And that guidance can only be attained from the Quran through reflection. So when Allah subhanaw taala has revealed this book, then he has revealed it for our guidance, so we must learn it, we must reflect upon it, and we

00:20:46--> 00:21:33

must not turn away from it. And then we see that with the revelation of the book, the creation of the skies and the earth is also mentioned, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala created all of this for a reason. And what's the connection over here? The connection is that the one who has revealed this book is the one who has also created the skies and the earth. So our understanding of this world can never ever be correct. It can never be complete. Unless and until we learn what this book teaches us what the creator tells us about the purpose of creation, what the creator tells us about the origin of this universe and its outcome. So remember that no matter what we observe, no matter

00:21:33--> 00:22:19

what we test, no matter what we theorize and hypothesize, etc. all that knowledge is incomplete and useless, unless we learn what the Creator has informed off, unless we supplement our knowledge with the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. In fact, the Quran should form the basis and the foundation of our knowledge and understanding and our worldview. So this entire existence, Allah subhanaw taala and forums is here, it is not for no purpose, nor is it going to remain forever. Allah subhanaw taala created us for his worship, and there is an end to this world. And after that is recompense for what we do. But yet there are people who do not believe and whenever they are

00:22:19--> 00:23:03

warned, they turn away, they fail to benefit from the Quran, say, oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, have you considered that what you invoke besides Allah, show me what they have created of the earth? Or did they have partnership in creation of the heavens, bring me a scripture revealed before this, or a remaining trace of knowledge, if you should be truthful, meaning there is not a thing, except that Allah subhanaw taala is its creator, this universe existed, even before these idols were made. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created all of this. So when He is the Creator, when he is the first, then he alone deserves worship, and who is more astray than he who

00:23:03--> 00:23:45

invokes besides Allah, those who will not respond to him until the Day of Resurrection, and they have their invocation are unaware, sopran, Allah, you may have experienced this, that at times you call someone and you're getting really annoyed that how come they're not answering my call, how come they're not responding to my messages, and then you find out that they don't even have their phone with them, you'll find out that their, you know, phone is lost. And this is why they're, they don't even know that you're calling them. So this is in fact, the state of those who are being called upon besides Allah, they have no idea. Those who are in the graves have no idea that they're being called

00:23:45--> 00:24:27

upon, that people are coming to worship them. So how is it that they will ever respond? And even if they knew that they were being called upon? How could they respond? How could they answer when they don't even have power to protect themselves? if they had any power? Would they be in the graves? Or would they be on earth? Subhan Allah, what either whoa Sheila NASS, who canula whom are the end when the people are gathered that day, they who were invoked besides Allah, will be enemies to them, and they will be deniers of their worship. And when our Verses are recited to them, as clear evidence is those who disbelieve say of the truth when it has come to them. This is obvious magic, meaning when

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

they don't have anything to refute it with because the truth is clear. And it is established, then they just say that it is magic, or do they say he has invented it, say, if I have invented it, you will not possess for me the power of protection from Allah at all. He is most knowing of that in which you are involved, sufficient as he as witnessed between me and you, and he is the Forgiving, the Merciful. Say, I am not something original among the messengers, meaning I am not an you know, a first message

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

Ginger, rather profits have come before me, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have absolute knowledge, he did not know what was going to happen to him in the future or to anybody else in the future. It is only Allah subhanaw taala who knows that, I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am not but a clear Warner. So we learn from this very clearly that no one knows what a person's final outcome will be. besides Allah subhanaw taala only Allah knows what a person's final end will be. We learned that a lady at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, she, she was her and her family.

00:25:47--> 00:26:28

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established the bond of brotherhood between her family and earth man, even mazoon are the Allahu anhu who had migrated. So basically, they're the ones who hosted him, so he lived with them. Now what happened is that Earth man will be a lot more on who is Earth minded mazoon he fell ill and he died. So when he died, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, and when he was sitting over there, oh my Allah, she said, Oh, I will saw him May Allah's mercy be on you. And I bear witness that Allah subhana wa tada has honored you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How do you know that Allah has honored him. She said, I do

00:26:28--> 00:27:13

not know my father and my mother be sacrificed for you all as messenger. But who else is worthy of it, if not Earth man, meaning he made Hydra, and he fell ill and he died, any if I lost pounds, I will not honor Him, then who else will be honored? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that asked to him by Allah death has overtaken him. And I hope the best for him by Allah, even though I am the messenger of Allah, yet I do not know what will be done to me. So Allah said that By Allah, I will never assert the piety of anyone after him. But this made her sad. And then later on, she had a dream that there was a flowing stream for Earth management was around. So she told the Prophet

00:27:13--> 00:27:56

sallallahu, or do something about that. And he said that that symbolizes his good deeds. So the fact is that we should have good expectation, we should have good assumption, we should have good hope. And we should also make the raw, but we should never ever pass judgment, neither on ourselves, nor on other people, that this person is definitely this individual is definitely going to be honored by Allah, this individual is certainly going to paradise. We are not in that position to pass judgment. It is only Allah subhanaw taala who has the authority to do that. Say, have you considered if the Quran was from Allah, and you disbelieved in it, while a witness from the children of Israel has

00:27:56--> 00:28:34

testified to something similar and believed, while you were arrogant, Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. So remember, among the People of the Book, there was a blurb and Sandra DeLonge Warren, who, who wasn't just an ordinary person, he was a knowledgeable man, he was a scholar among them. And he believed in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He said that when he saw the face of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knew that that was not the face of a liar. Even though he believed Abdullah bin Salaam, still his people, they did not accept his testimony, they turned away. And those who disbelieve, say, of those who believe if it had truly been good, they

00:28:34--> 00:29:19

would not have proceeded us to it. And when they are not guided by it, they will say this is an ancient falsehood. We see that the people of Makkah, especially, they look down on the believers, on the fact that the believers were not that well off, they were not that you know, wealthy, etc. So this is a reminder to us that Islam is not just for the elite. Islam is not just for the wealthy, for the powerful, or for those who are highly educated. For those who are academic know, the Quran is for all people, Islam is for all people. And before it was the scripture of Moosa to lead and as a mercy. And this is a confirming book in an Arabic tongue, to warn those who have wronged and as

00:29:19--> 00:29:59

good tidings to the doers of good in alladhina, Carlota boon Allah, indeed those who have said, Our Lord is Allah, so Master camu and then remained on a right course, because they believe that Allah is their Lord. So now they're striving to please Him. So now so now they have become firm on the right course, there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. Those are the companions of Paradise abiding eternally, they're in as reward for what they used to do. What was slain al insana be? Well, today he is Santa. And we have enjoined upon man to his parents good treatment.

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

Why? Because hemella to oma who call her well bar to call her, his mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship. Well, hem Lu who was the assala, who said as soon as shahara and his gestation and weaning period is 30 months. There are three verses in the Quran that begin like this, that will sign al insana Beware the day that Allah subhanaw taala says that we have instructed the human being to be good to his parents, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has instructed us to be good to our parents. Why? Because the greatest right among the creation is of the parents, meaning your greatest obligation and your greatest duty is towards your parents, not to your

00:30:49--> 00:31:26

children, it is towards your parents, even if their religion is different. The Prophet sallallahu earlier son was asked a EULA Amelie Habu Illa which deed is the most beloved to Allah. And he said a Salah to Allah walk to her prayer at its proper time. And he was asked then which one he said so mobi rule validate, then it is to be good to your parents. And remember, as we see in this ayah, that from the parents, also the mother and the mother and the father, it is the mother that deserves even better treatment, meaning her right is greater than that of the Father.

00:31:27--> 00:32:07

We all know that famous her these were, the person came and asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that who amongst people deserves my best treatment, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said omac, your mother, the question was repeated again. He said, your mother, your mother, he said this three times. And then he said, your father, meaning be three times more respectful, and more kind to your mother, then you are to your father. Why? Because the mother does for her child, what even the father does not do what the Father cannot do. And there are three things that really only the mother does. And they're mentioned in this idea. What are they, first of all, the gestation the

00:32:07--> 00:32:55

pregnancy, which is which is one and Allah whinin, meaning it is hardship upon hardship, and no one shares the load of her pregnancy. There is ever increasing difficulty each day she feels weaker than the previous her life is at risk. Her body is transforming her life changes, there is fatigue, there's great discomfort, there's body aches, there's back ache, and then secondly, giving birth hemella to omo korhan world or to call her, she bears the child with difficulty. And then she delivers the child with great difficulty also in which is excruciating pain, and it nearly kills her. And then the third thing that she was that the mother only does is the nursing of the child,

00:32:55--> 00:33:38

meaning she alone, nurses, the child were hamdu of your saarloos, the latona shahara and 30 months go in this entire duration, which is physically and mentally exhausting for the mother. So we see that the father does not have any share in these three things. Yes, he is there he may be there he may be very supportive. Yes, he may spend, but the actual exertion is by the mother, even earth I mean, Rahim Allah said that the Father only has pleasure, meaning in the creation of the child, and the mother nearly dies, meaning she nearly dies in giving birth to her child. And this is the reason why the mother's right is three times greater than that of the Father. And this is why when the

00:33:38--> 00:34:15

mother needs her children, then the greatest virtue for a person is to take care of the mother and to help her we see in Hadees, that being good to the mother is actually more important than even going for jihad in the way of Allah. We learned that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and said O Messenger of Allah, I want to go for Jihad with you, seeking thereby the face of God and the hereafter. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Is your mother alive? So he said, Yes, she is. He said, Go back and honor her, go back and take care of her. So this companion, and he approached the Prophet sallallahu where it is that I'm from the other side repeated the same

00:34:15--> 00:35:00

question. And the Prophet sallallahu ertapenem again, told her go back and honor her. And this happened three times. Why? Because the individual the person who has who has experienced so much hardship for your sake, who has dedicated so much love, even if the mother did not, you know, give birth willingly or, you know, have you willingly, but still she experienced great hardship because of you, then what does she deserve? She deserves good treatment from you. And our Deen teaches us that we should do good to those who have done good to us that we should do assigned to those who have done it assigned to us. Sometimes we see that it happens that the parents are really

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

have their children there need their children to, you know, drive them around to talk to them to do errands for them, and they're not able to do things themselves anymore. And in such a time, children must take care of their parents. And they should not underestimate what they do to serve their parents. Because it is more important than voluntary prayer also, because remember, you can break your voluntary prayer and fulfill the needs of your parents. And then you can go and complete your prayer later, the rights of the parents, especially the mother has its own place. And never think that because you're doing so many good things, you can neglect your parents. You can you are you can

00:35:41--> 00:36:25

never justify neglecting your parents. Remember that we learned in our hobbies, that there was a woman who called her son while her son whose name was Jude age, who was a monk. It he was he was praying at that time. So his mother came and he called her and she called him that old your age. And due to age, he was worshipping at the time and he said, Oh Allah, here is my mother. And here is my prayer. What do I do? And he continued with his prayer, he ignored his mother. So his mother again said old your age order, he called him three times, and Eurasia ignored his mother. So she got really hurt. And she got angry with him. And she said, Oh Allah, do not let Jude age die until he

00:36:25--> 00:37:05

sees the faces of prostitutes. stuffit Allah, any he was so righteous and you know such a devout worshiper, but he was neglecting his mother so much. So his mother also initially reached her limit. So she prayed against him. And what happened? There was a woman who gave birth and when people asked her, that Whose child is this, she said, this is the child of Judah age, meaning she accused him of having committed Zina. So then people you know, they came, they came out in anger at your age that you know, you're supposed to be a monk and someone's a righteous and you are committing Zina. So gerade went to the baby and said, Oh child, who is your father, and the child, the baby spoke, that

00:37:05--> 00:37:51

it is actually the shepherd. So Allah subhanaw taala, also exonerated him. But we see that Allah subhanaw taala accepted the draw of the mother against her son, even though her son was a righteous, devout worshiper. So never, ever think that just because you were doing good things, you have the right to neglect your parents. No, you must strive to please your parents, to make them happy. You should try to listen to their problems and help solve them. Even if they're non Muslim. You help them in whatever way possible, even if they're doing things that are illogical, they are telling you to do things which are illogical, you disagree with them. 100%. But still, you must be respectful

00:37:51--> 00:38:32

towards them a smack in a bucket when her mother was visiting. And her mother was not a Muslim. She asked the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that what do I do? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said slowly omake that join ties with your with your mother, meaning be good to her. And this is of course in lawful and good things. Meaning, if your parents ask you to do what is wrong, then of course you do not cooperate with them. But even that should be with utmost respect. Meaning you must disagree with respect. And sometimes it happens that you know, you cannot get along with your parents, no matter what you do. In fact, parents can be abusive, verbally or even physically, or

00:38:32--> 00:39:16

they may have done certain things to you know, really damage you and hurt you. And it's very difficult for you to move on from that. But still, you know, you will not be held responsible for your feelings. You are responsible for your behavior, for your actions for what you say and what you do. So be so guard your your external around your parents, meaning don't say disrespectful things, don't behave in a rude and arrogant manner around them, you can be quiet, but you should not be rude, you should not be harsh, you can avoid argument, but you should not argue and insult them, no matter how much you disagree with them. And we see that when a person takes care of their parents,

00:39:16--> 00:39:59

then this is a this is a means of forgiveness for major since we learned that a man asked even our basketball dealer who I know about, you know, the fact that this man had committed certain major sins he had committed murder, and had been our boss asked him that is your mother alive? The man said no. So he said repent to Allah as much as possible, and try to draw near him as much as you can. So later on, someone asked him but why did you ask him if, if his mother was alive, he said it been our best said because I don't know of any deed that draws a person closer to Allah, other than dutifulness to the mother, meaning when you're good to your mother, then this is a deed that really

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

draws you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So today as we study this, as we talk about this, that make sure you do something good with your mother, with both your parents, but especially with your mother, give her some gift, make her happy, help her somehow, if they are near, go help them. And if they're far, then do something else. And if they have passed away, then give sadaqa on their behalf, so that when they see their rank being increased in the Hereafter, and they wonder why that is happening. They're told that this is because of the draws of your children, this other code that your children have given the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Indeed, Allah raises the

00:40:38--> 00:41:19

rank of a righteous servant in paradise. So the servant says, Oh, my Lord, how did I get this? Why did this happen? Allah Subhana, Allah says, because of the is the fall of your child for you, meaning because your child used to seek forgiveness for you. This is why your ranks have been elevated. So for parents who have passed away, then make dogs for them, give sadaqa for them, seek forgiveness for them. And this is all very helpful for them. And remember, it is important that the husband and wife support one another, and encourage one another in doing this bill Wiley Dane, is an excellent deed that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do. So a wife should encourage her

00:41:19--> 00:41:59

husband, to be good to your mother, be good to your father, and a husband should support his wife, that goal be good to your mother, be good to your father, because this is something that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do, encourage each other, to spend on on your parents to spend time with them to take care of them. And this is very, very important in which we need the support of each other. And parents also should the children also should encourage their parents that you know that they should be good to their parents. So the so this is something that we need encouragement in. And also remember that no matter what you have done for your parents, it is never

00:41:59--> 00:42:41

ever enough. Because sometimes we think that you know what, they were sick, and we took care of them. Or you know what, they have no place to live. So now they're living with us, or we help them with this. And we help them with that. No matter what you do for your parents. Remember that you can never ever pay them back. We learned that even our model de la Mourinho, he saw a Yemeni man going around the Kaaba, while carrying his mother on his back. And he was saying that I am your camel, if her mount is if a mount of someone is frightened, I am not frightened, meaning no matter what, I will not leave you I will not, you know, ignore you, I will take care of you. So then this man asked

00:42:41--> 00:43:28

him that What do you think, have I repaid her and even her mother said no, not even for a single grown, meaning when she gave birth to you, she suffered such excruciating pain that you can never ever pay her back. So never be content with the gift that you gave your mother last year, or that you massaged her her head a long time ago, or that you honored her request once upon a time, no matter what you do, they always deserve more. And this is what your son is, what is it said that sometimes, even when someone has mistreated you, you still do good to them. You still do good in response to them. You see, parents must be good to their children. But parents are after all human.

00:43:28--> 00:44:11

And you know what, especially you know, the first child, you know, the first the adult child, he suffers a lot at the hands of you parents, because you know parents are experimenting, basically. So any parents, whatever they do, they do it with the best that they know. And sometimes they have great expectations of their children. And sometimes, you know, they do make mistakes because they're human. But we should remember that parents are human, they are not perfect. They made their share of mistakes. But still Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to be good to them. And you know what, when you do good to someone, even though you have been hurt by them, remember, this is a way of a

00:44:11--> 00:44:53

different ability here. isin this is a way of repelling that which is bad with something good. And when you will do that. Allah subhanaw taala will turn your enmity into friendship. A lot of people complain that you know what I try my you know, I really want to be close to my parents, I want to have a good relationship with them. But I cannot Why? Why is it that we cannot have a good relationship with our parents because sometimes we only dwell on the mistakes that our parents have made, or the mistakes that our parents are still making. We are only dwelling on them. And we are completely overlooking and ignoring the good that we have received from our parents. You know, the

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

fact that they are spending on our education, the fact that they have provided us a comfortable home. The fact that they

00:45:00--> 00:45:44

They, you know, give us money, the fact that we are able to travel the world, because of them, the fact that, you know, they had they have provided us financial security, and so much more. Okay, they're human. And you know, they yell and they get angry and they get annoyed. their deeds are for them. Remember that they're responsible for how they treat you. But you are responsible for what you do. So instead of focusing on the mistakes of your parents, start focusing on what you are supposed to do with them on how you are supposed to treat them. So remember that parents deserve a lesson. And part of that exam is that we remember and we talk about the good that they have done to us not

00:45:44--> 00:46:30

that we dwell on their mistakes. And we should also make the offer our parents, we learned that Abu right it'll be a lot more on who he wants returned from a journey. And when he entered his, you know, area, he shouted out in his loudest voice that a salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu it or mother, meaning, oh, my mom, you know all mom, may peace be upon you may the mercy of Allah and His blessing be upon you. And she replied NPC upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessing be upon you to remember a Buddha's mother at one point did not want him to be a Muslim. Remember that she did not like the fact that a Buddha was Muslim. A Buddha requested the prophets of Allah

00:46:30--> 00:47:13

who already assumed that make the offer my mother, that she accepts Islam, and she did accept Islam. So now look at this, what a beautiful relationship they have. And it is possible that even though you have been estranged from your parents, for many years, there have been married many, many uncomfortable things. Many, you know, a lot of bitterness, a lot of hurt. It can be overcome with Hassan. So, abou el de la Mourinho, he said, may Allah have mercy on you, as you raised me when I was a child. Look at what other wood it is remembering the fact that she raised him, not the fact that she was hostile to his Islam for so many years. And she resisted and she disliked it. No, he

00:47:13--> 00:48:01

he, he did not focus on that. He focused on the fact that she that she raised him and she replied my son, may Allah reward you well, and be pleased with you. As you were dutiful towards me when I was old, Allahu Akbar had either Bella I should the who were Bella her Albertina Sen, and he grows until when he reaches maturity and reaches the age of 40 years. You see 40 years is mentioned over here. Because typically, a person begins to value their parents when they're older, when they're 40 years old. Why? Because this is the age of maturity. This is the age when a person finally begins to take life seriously. And perhaps they have you know, children of their own by now who get on their

00:48:01--> 00:48:40

nerves. So now they can finally appreciate their parents. Because when you face the struggles of parenting, you remember your own parents. So what Ada Bella should the who were Bella her barinas anathan. And you see at this age when a person is 40. You know, typically a person is very busy. Why? Because they have their own aging parents, and they also have a young family of their own. And both of them need you. So you feel very divided. That what do I do, you feel very divided that on the one hand, you have to help your children, for example, do their homework, but on the other hand, you also know you haven't seen your parents for a few days, you need to go spend some time with

00:48:40--> 00:49:21

them. Right? So you, you are torn between your children and your parents. And no matter what you do, no matter how much you strive to, you know, be good to your parents, but because you know there's so much stress of your work. And then the stress of parenting, you do become slightly irritable and and what happens is that even though you're not trying to be rude with your parents, sometimes that stress is reflected in the way that you speak with them in the way that you deal with them. And sometimes you're fatigued. You know you are tired and exhausted. And even though you wish to do good to your parents, but you're not able to you want to go and do that, you know errand for your parents

00:49:21--> 00:50:00

but you are not able to because you only have limited capacity. You only have so much time. So then what do you do? How do you live with that guilt, you turn to Allah you seek Allah subhanaw taala does help. Call or bl zero money, an ash Quran aromatic allottee anantha aleja where Allah wa Li the year. He says, My Lord, enable me to be grateful for your favor, which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents. Yeah, Allah, you give me the ability to be grateful to you and to you for the favors that you have given me directly and for the favors that you bestowed on me through my

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

Parents, any I am not able to express you could on my own, I need your help. I need your help here Allah. And this is a fact that we must remember, we cannot treat our parents good without the help of Allah. So if you are struggling, if you are struggling with this, that you are not able to, you know, be good to your parents that no matter what you do, you still you know, come across as rude, you answer back and then later on you're regret. seek the help of Allah, learn this Dora, and make the store. Allah subhanaw taala has taught us this Dora in the Quran. So this should be your goal, learn this Torah and make it every day that he or Allah, you give me the ability, you give me the

00:50:44--> 00:51:28

strength, that this is a favorite that you have bestowed on me. And I am not able to appreciate this favor. So you give me the ability, I need your help. And then you see that it is mentioned in this door that you give me the ability to be grateful for the favor which you have bestowed on me, and also upon my parents. Because there are many blessings that we enjoy, because of our parents, through their status, through their education, through their financial and social stability, their good character, and especially their their religion. Remember that children benefit a great deal from what their parents have. If you think about it, people study their work this settle, why to

00:51:28--> 00:52:12

have a family and to take care of that family. And so often, parents don't get to enjoy the money that they earn. Why? Because all of it or a major portion of it is going and going on who on their children because they want their children to study in Islamic school. So they're paying private school fees. They're paying for their Quran education, they're paying so that they can take them for O'Meara for Hajj, Subhan Allah, and he all of these expenses that your parents have incurred for your religious upbringing, right. So you have benefited a great deal, because of your parents. Remember that we are the first beneficiaries of the blessings that our parents receive, even if our

00:52:12--> 00:52:56

parents were non Muslim. Still, the fact that they raised us the fact that they gave us food and drink any, whatever it is, whatever we received through our parents, we benefited from that, whether it was a lot, or it was little, whether it was religious, or it was material, any any blessing that we have received to our parents is is worth appreciating and being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for remember that even the mistakes of your parents, in fact, can be a blessing for you. Because the mistakes that your parents make those mistakes teach you that you know what I am going to be better than this. I am not going to be like this. You know, there are people who, for example, there were

00:52:56--> 00:53:38

neglected by their parents. But then when they become parents themselves, they become very attentive parents towards their children, they become very, very loving towards their children very caring towards their children. So don't dwell on the mistakes of your parents move on from that. Focus on what you can do. And remember that when a person is grateful, they only benefit themselves. So he prays that Oh, my lord enabled me to be grateful for your favor which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to work righteousness of which you will approve meaning allow me to do in my remaining life, something worthwhile, and make righteous for me my offspring, meaning make them a

00:53:38--> 00:54:03

coolness of the eyes for me, and also make me a coolness of the eyes for my parents. Indeed, I have repented to you, and indeed, I am of the Muslims. So this shows us that at the age of 40, a person must make Toba and a person must consciously revive their faith and must consciously analyze their life, that how am I towards my parents, towards my children? And what is it that I am doing in my life?

00:54:04--> 00:54:50

So we see over here, that we must be grateful for the blessings that we have received through our parents. Remember that when it comes to being good to our parents, this can be in a number of ways. This can be in the way of us helping them and supporting them in doing good like ismar either to his salon, he helped Ibrahim or his salon, how in building the Kaaba. We learned that both of them constructed the Kaaba is married and he said I would bring the stones and Ibrahim artists and I would build the walls of the Kaaba use of his Salaam. When he when he was on the throne. He he made their own. He honored his parents, and he rougher away here a little ash. Right? So you honor your

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

parents, you do your sign to your parents, not just by helping them but also by honoring them by showing respect to them. And then

00:55:00--> 00:55:45

by spending on them also, you see we spend on our families because we know that that is our responsibility, but we must also spend on our parents and again for this, the husband and wife should support and encourage one another. You see, when when a husband will What if a woman sees that her husband is spending on his mother on his father, he should be happy that Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah he is pleasing Allah subhanaw taala because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, he encouraged people to spend on their parents. In the Quran. Also, we learned that when it comes to voluntary spending, rewardable spending, it's the parents that are mentioned first.

00:55:45--> 00:56:23

Likewise, when a woman is spending on her parents, the husband should be happy, he should be supportive. In fact, he should give her money that you know what go buy gift for your go buy a gift for your parents, any This is not something that we should be stingy about. This is a way of earning rewards with Allah subhanaw taala This is something that pleases Allah. This is something that earns a person Jenna, we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I saw in my dream that I entered paradise. And there I heard the recitation of the Quran. So I asked Who is this? And I was told it is how it is. Even Norman and the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm setka that can

00:56:23--> 00:57:11

be cut that can be why because haritha de la Mourinho, wacana abem, run nursey be me, he was the most beautiful of people to his mother, any he out of all people, he was the one who would take care of his mother the most. So goodness towards parents is something that leads to Jenna, don't compare yourself to others. Look at your own situation, and see what you can do. Given your situation and your relationship with parents. What is it that you can do? What little can you do? And how can you improve so that in sha Allah, you also earn Jana, you also earn Jenna through this gate. Those are the ones from whom we will accept the deeds. Those are the ones from whom we will accept the best of

00:57:11--> 00:57:53

what they did, and overlook their misdeeds, their being among the companions of Paradise. This is the promise of truth which they had been promised. But the one who says to his parents off to you, Do you promise me that I will be brought forth from the earth, Guinea there are other children who become so disrespectful towards their parents that look at how they speak to them, and they reject Islam, they reject the resurrection, when generations before me have already passed on. Any so many people died before no one has been resurrected yet and you say that there is resurrection? What are you talking about? Look at this arrogant attitude over here. While they call to Allah for help, and

00:57:53--> 00:58:36

to their son Walter, you believe indeed the promise of Allah is truth. But he says this is not but legends of the former people. So you see, there are some pious parents whose children turn out to be like this. And remember, it is our duty to be respectful towards our parents. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has made it prohibited for you to be disrespectful to your mother's any This is not accepted by Allah. Allah subhanaw taala does not like it at all. In a Hadees we learn, learn Allah home and Subbu while today he Allah has cursed the person who insults his parents, so you can have your disagreements. You can disagree with them. And you can know that your parents are

00:58:36--> 00:59:19

wrong. But most of the time parents are actually right. But even if you're 100% sure, still, you don't have the right to be disrespectful. Those are the ones upon whom the word has come into effect, who will be among nations which had passed on before them of jinn and men. Indeed, they all were losers when he called Linda Raja to mimma Emmylou and for all there are degrees of reward and punishment for what they have done. And it is so that he may fully compensate them for their deeds, and they will not be wronged. Remember, there are 100 levels in Paradise, and each person will get their level according to their deeds. And the day those who disbelieved are exposed to the fire, it

00:59:19--> 00:59:59

will be said you exhausted your pleasures during your worldly life and enjoyed them. So this day you will be awarded the punishment of extreme humiliation because you were arrogant upon the earth without right and because you were defiantly disobedient. So we see here that a person should be very grateful and remain fearful when enjoying good things in life, that perhaps a person might be told on the day of judgment that you already enjoyed your share in the world, you are compensated there. So in the hereafter there is nothing for you. You see when you receive good things in life, thank Allah and also also have that fear and also beg Allah that

01:00:00--> 01:00:41

Allah don't make this a means of my deprivation in the hereafter. We learned that the companions would cry when good things of this life were brought to them. Once Abdullah might have been Earth was fasting, and food was brought to him to break his fast. And he said most our beginner made was martyred. And he was better than I. Yet he was shrouded in a sheet such that if his head was covered, his feet were exposed, and if his feet were covered, His head was exposed, and then worldly wealth was bestowed upon us, we are afraid that the reward of our deeds has been given to us in this life. And he wept so much then, and he left the food he couldn't eat, and mentioned a prophet

01:00:41--> 01:01:22

sallallahu already who was the brother of odd when he warned his people in the region of cough. And Warner's had already passed on before him and after him saying, do not worship except Allah, indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day, they said, Have you come to delude us away from our gods, then bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the truthful, he said, knowledge of its time is only with Allah. And I conveyed to you that with which I was sent, but I see you to be a people behaving ignorantly. And when they saw it as a cloud approaching their valleys. They said, this is a cloud bringing us rain. Rather, it is that for which you were impatient, meaning the

01:01:22--> 01:02:05

punishment, a wind within it is a painful punishment. within it, a painful punishment, destroying everything by command of its Lord, and they became so that nothing was seen of them except their dwellings. Thus do We recompense the criminal people, and we had certainly established them in such as we have not established you, and we made for them hearing and vision and hearts, but their hearing and vision and hearts avail them not from anything of the punishment when they were continually rejecting the signs of Allah. And they were enveloped, by what they used to ridicule, Subhan Allah, and he they had their eyes and ears and hearts, but they were too busy in the world.

01:02:05--> 01:02:48

And so they did not turn to Allah, neither listening to nor reading the recurve Allah than this is what became of them, that all of their faculties were useless, while a hillock, Namah, holder comb, and we have already destroyed what surrounds you of those cities. And we have diversified the signs or verses that perhaps they might return from disbelief, then why did those they took besides Allah as deities by which to approach him, not aid them? Where did they go when the punishment came upon them, but they had strayed from them. And that was their false hood, and what they were inventing what is sort of La Conner phenomenal, Jane, and mentioned when we directed to you a few of the gene,

01:02:48--> 01:03:32

a group of the jinn, listening to the Quran, and when they attended it, they said, Listen quietly, be quiet. And when it was concluded, they went back to their people as Warner's, what good souls, these Jin were, this was their first encounter with the Quran. And when they heard the Quran the first time, they realized that they had to show other and this is why not only did they listen to the Quran attentively, they also told each other Be quiet. And listen, they showed respect. And that is why they were able to absorb the Quran and take its effect. And when they internalized it, they were able to pass it on, they were able to convey it. And this is what is mentioned in the Quran

01:03:32--> 01:04:12

that people should learn the deen and then while Yun little coma hamidah Roger he lay him they should go warn people when they return to them. Remember that whatever we learn of the Quran is not just for us to enjoy, you know, just at that moment, no, this is for us to internalize and for us to pass on. So these Jin became moon Vereen, meaning they went and they became Warner's to their people, meaning to the rest of the jig. So we see that prophets were sent among the humans, but Warner's were sent among the jinn also, and remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent as a messenger to the jinn to, which is why at several occasions he recited the Quran to

01:04:12--> 01:04:52

them, and the gin asked them as the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm several questions and he guided them in those matters. They said, Oh our people, indeed we have heard. A recited book revealed after Moosa, meaning this has been revealed after the total, confirming what was before it, which guides to the truth and to a straight path they didn't mention in jailers aboard because the law was actually the total of all our people respond to the Messenger of Allah and believe in Him, Allah will forgive for you your sins and protect you from a painful punishment. But he who does not respond to the color of Allah will not cause failure to him upon earth, and he will not have besides

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

him any protectors, those are in manifest error. Do they not see that Allah who created the heavens and the earth

01:05:00--> 01:05:45

did not fail in their creation. He did not get tired after created them is able to give life to the dead. Yes indeed he is over all things competent. And the day those who disbelieved are exposed to the fire, it will be said, Is this not the truth? They will say yes by our Lord then they will admit he will say that taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve fosmid Kemal sobre una azumino Rasul. So be patient O Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as were those of determination among the messengers, and do not be impatient for them. Meaning Do not ask for punishment for your people. Why? Because it will come at its due time, it will be on the day, they see that which they were

01:05:45--> 01:06:32

promised, as though they had not remained in the world except for an hour of a day. This is notification and will any be destroyed except the defiantly disobedient people, meaning only those who disobey Allah than destruction is for them. Surah Mohammed Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim and levena kuffaar Wu was subdue. arencibia Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah home, those who disbelieve and avert people from the way of Allah, Allah will waste their deeds, their efforts will become useless, and those who believe and do righteous deeds, and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad, and it is the truth from their Lord, Allah will remove from them their misdeeds and amend

01:06:32--> 01:07:08

their condition, Allah will forgive them, and he will also amend their condition improve their condition. Why? Because that is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, and those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. Thus does Allah present to the people their comparisons. So when you meet those who disbelieve in battle, strike their necks until when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds and either confer favor afterwards, or ransom them, until the war lays down, its burdens. So here are some rules concerning the battle are being taught.

01:07:09--> 01:07:56

So remember that even with regards to battle, we have been given commands. Why? Because we're not to follow our desires in any aspect of our lives. That is the command and if Allah had willed, He will. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them himself. But he ordered armed struggle to test some of you by means of others and those who are killed in the cause of Allah. Never will he waste their deeds, He will guide them and amend their condition and admit them to paradise which he has made known to them. Allah has made Jenna known to the believers, how how do they know about it through the Quran and through the Sunnah. And if you think about it, there are so

01:07:56--> 01:08:37

many details and descriptions of Jenna that are given in the Quran and in the Sunnah, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that, and specifically remember Allah subhanaw taala will make gender very, very familiar to the people who will enter it, meaning they will know their rank, they will know their home their address without making any mistake, they will not have to ask about the way Subhan Allah, it will be ever familiar to them, as if they always belong there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by him in his hand, the life of Muhammad is everybody will recognize his home in Jannah better than he recognizes his home in the world, Allahu Akbar.

01:08:38--> 01:09:15

And we also learn that people will enter Jannah with their families, meaning those who are righteous, the righteous families will stay together in Jenna. And how is it that Allah subhana wa tada has made these homes in Jannah? You see? Or were you the healer? Whom will johnetta Allah Allah home? So how is it that you get a home in Jenna, we learned from several a Hadees about how you can get a home in Ghana, for example, when you pray the sun and rottie but the 12 sundara cause that you pray with fudger and Lahore, and also and Margaret and Trisha, right, the two with budget for six with lower

01:09:17--> 01:09:58

three sorry, two with Margaret, and then two with Russia. So these 12 knockout, these are sin and ratebeer whoever performs them, then they will get a home in general. We also learn about praying for regard to how time and for before the hook that whoever performs them will get a home in Gemina. Making a Masjid whoever builds the masjid for the sake of Allah. Allah will build for him a house in general, remembering Allah when entering the mall when entering the marketplace. So reciting circle, circle airfloss 10 times, meeting someone for the sake of Allah. This is also something that will give a house of give a person a house in general, being patient and trial and filling gaps when we

01:09:58--> 01:09:59

form rules and laws.

01:10:00--> 01:10:47

Giving arguments these are all causes of earning homes in Paradise, all you who have believed if you support Allah, He will support you and plan firmly your feets meaning Allah subhanaw taala will give you firmness. When you when you help the religion of Allah, remember that Allah subhanaw taala does not need our help. So what is meant here is helping the religion of Allah, meaning financially help it in order that it may be spread it may be taught, and then also take it to others learn it and teach it and when you will do that Allah subhanaw taala will give you stability also, but those who disbelieve for them as misery, and he will waste their deeds. That is because they disliked what

01:10:47--> 01:11:30

Allah revealed. So he rendered worthless their deeds, meaning when they dislike the Quran, then their good efforts will be wasted. Have they not travelled through the land and seen how was the end of those before them, Allah destroyed everything over them, and for the disbelievers is something comparable. That is because Allah is the Protector of those who have believed, and because the disbelievers have no protector in the law hero larina amanu where I'm a little Sally hertie Jeanette in 30 min tactical and harm Indeed, Allah who will admit those who have believed and unrighteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow, but those who disbelieve, enjoy themselves and eat as

01:11:30--> 01:12:16

grazing, livestock eat, and the fire will be or will be a residence for them. If you think about it, animals, their only concern is what to eat and to procreate. That's it. And unfortunately, many people live with the same purpose. So their obsession is to just eat well, and have great relationships. But the believer has a greater goal. And that goal is the home of the hereafter. So a believer is not just concerned about fulfilling their pleasures here, they sacrifice some of their pleasures, they inhibit some of their pleasures, they, they, they contain them within the bounds of the lawful, so that they can get a home in Paradise, and how many a city was stronger than your city

01:12:16--> 01:13:02

which drove you out? We destroyed them, and there was no helper for them. So is he who is unclear evidence from his Lord like him to whom the evil of his work has been made attractive, and they follow their own desires. The description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised is what it is such that were in our rivers of water on altered rivers of milk, the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine, delicious, to those who drink, and rivers of purified honey. So four kinds of rivers are mentioned, in which they will have from all kinds of fruits and forgiveness from their Lord is this like that of those who abide eternally in the fire and are given to drink scalding

01:13:02--> 01:13:44

water that will sever their intestines? staford over any there's no comparison over here. Look at the blessings in Jannah endless supply and look at the punishment in hell. There is no comparison. So think about it. Where are you going? What are you heading towards? And among them are those who listened to you until when they depart from you. They say to those who are given knowledge, what has he said just now, any apparently they're listening to the HOLD ON button later on, they talk about it as if it was something strange as if it is something not even worth remembering. Those are the ones of whom Allah has sealed over their hearts and who have followed their own desires and those

01:13:44--> 01:14:27

who are guided what led ina Hurtado, za home houda Allah increases them and guidance what I tell him to call home and he gives them their righteousness. So every time they hear the Quran, they learn something about it. They only increase in their guidance Allah which are not made home, then do they await except that the hour should come upon them unexpectedly. But already there have come some of its indications, then what good for them when it has come, will be their remembrance, meaning what good will it be when the hour has come? You need to do something right now. So create that positive change right now. Fire alarm, so you should know that there is no deity except Allah, knowledge

01:14:27--> 01:14:59

comes first. And then ask forgiveness for your sin, knowledge comes before action, and for the believing men and believing women and Allah knows of your movement and your resting place. So we see over here that the last panel Todd is telling his messenger fire alarm, you should know that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah don't just repeat that statement. You should have knowledge and understanding of the statement. Just like that we have been told in the Quran Ariela mu you should know the reality of this life.

01:15:00--> 01:15:38

But it is only play and amusement, we are told in the Quran errorlevel You should know that your wealth and your children are a trial, that they are a test. So we should have, we should learn, we should take knowledge very seriously. And 100 Allah, we have been given the opportunity to your last puntata gave us the ability to go through the translation and brief you know, reflections, brief explanation of some points. And we should make it make it a goal for ourselves that we want to study the Quran in more detail, we want to study these verses in greater detail. Today, my daughter was asking me that How come you only read the read the translation, so I explained to her that I only

01:15:38--> 01:16:22

have a limited amount of time, and I cannot read the Arabic. So the fact is that the Arabic of the Quran is worth understanding directly, that we need to understand the words of the Quran. And this should be our goal that we should, that we that we desire to increase in our knowledge of the Quran. And you know, Alhamdulillah with the ability that Allah gave you, you managed to do this, in, you know, so many days in a row consistently every single day without a break. So in sha Allah after this, you know, intend to join another program, where you study every verse of the Quran, every word of the Quran, because that will bring you greater knowledge in sha Allah. And that will mean

01:16:22--> 01:17:03

obedience to Allah command farlam you should no increase in your knowledge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told that you should pray or visit near in LA, oh, my lord increased me and knowledge. Because remember, action is not possible without knowledge. And if a person does not have knowledge, and they act, they work with ignorance, they could actually be making a huge error. So their effort could actually be a complete waste and not just a waste, but something that will bring them regret on the Day of Judgment. So it is important that we seek knowledge of the Quran, we increase in our knowledge of the Quran. So I would encourage all of you that make the intention

01:17:03--> 01:17:42

right now that after Ramadan in sha Allah, join another class, join another program in which you study the Quran in greater detail. Those who believe say, Why has a surah not been sent down? Meaning the people, the Muslims at the beginning they would say that how come we have not been commanded to fight already? You know, we have enemies who have been so you know, who have been harming us for so long, we want to take revenge. So how come a sutra of that nature has not been revealed yet? But then when a precise surah is revealed, and fighting as mentioned there in you see those in whose hearts is hypocrisy, looking at you with the look of one overcome by death, and more

01:17:42--> 01:18:23

appropriate for them would have been obedience and good words. Any sometimes it happens that in our eagerness, we get so excited that you know what I want to do this, I want to do this. But then when we are given the opportunity we get afraid. So what is better obedience and good words? Meaning even when you are afraid of facing your new reality, still say good words? And what are those good words that you ask Allah subhanaw taala for help you Allah, you helped me Don't say things like oh my god, this is impossible. Oh my god, this is too hard. I cannot do this. This is unbearable. You know what? I am changing my mind. No, say good words, say husband, Allah, say y'all Allah, I started

01:18:23--> 01:19:04

this, I made this good intention. Now I need your help. And say in sha Allah, I will complete this and don't waste your effort on your reward through negative words. And when the matter of fighting was determined, if they had been true to Allah, by fulfilling their word, it would have been better for them. So would you perhaps if you turned away, cause corruption on earth and sever your ties of relationship. So this shows us that when a person turns away from the command of Allah, and they cause corruption, then they actually sever ties of relationship and severing ties of relationship. And he This is something very, very serious. Remember that there are two two types of rahem two

01:19:04--> 01:19:44

types of blood ties. One is that General, you know, relationship between all human beings, the fact that we're all children of Adam, and specifically we are closer to those who believe. So it is important that we, you know, take care of one another, we are kind and respectful. And this is a sign of faith, that we help one another, that we don't hurt them, but rather we are a source of peace for one another. And then secondly, there is that horse that specific relationship which Allah subhanaw taala has created between you and the people who are closest to you through blood and this includes both paternal and maternal relationships. So it is necessary that we are good to them, we

01:19:44--> 01:19:59

spend on them, we look out for them, we are there for one another, and the person who severs ties of kinship, then remember that Allah subhanaw taala will cut off from him. This is a warning that we have been given in Hades and there is great harms that a person suffers

01:20:00--> 01:20:24

This life and the next life because of severing ties of kinship, we learned that a person who who does this will suffer sooner or later in this life, meaning even before they die, they will suffer the consequences of severing ties of kinship. So we should make Toba from this. Remember that every Muslim is forgiven when deeds are presented during the week, Mondays and Thursdays except for who?

01:20:25--> 01:21:10

Except for people who who have abandoned one another, right. And part of abandoning one another is to is to sever ties of kinship. So it is not permissible for us to sever ties of kinship, you we are allowed to be angry with each other. But the maximum duration for that is three days. After three days you must force yourself to get back in touch and to mend the relationship. It doesn't mean you have to be buddy, buddy with everybody. But it means that you have to be at least on speaking terms and your heart should be clean. Those who do so are the ones that Allah has cursed, who those who spread corruption in the earth and sever relationships are cursed by Allah. So he has deafened them

01:21:10--> 01:21:57

and blinded their vision and this is why people who cut off from their relatives, even when they're advised to do something good. They come up with excuses and arguments for later the Brunello Quran, Allah, Lubin, UK follow her, then do they not reflect upon the Quran? Or are there locks upon their hearts? You see, when a lock is put on a door, that means that the door is closed, that means no one can go inside, and nothing can come outside. So the heart Remember, it needs to be opened, so that a man, faith and Quran can enter. So we must put aside our biases our preconceived notions, our assumptions about the Quran, or about things in life. Allow the Quran to enter your heart and when

01:21:57--> 01:22:45

you will allow the Quran to enter your heart. Only then will you heal. Only then will you overcome your past grievances. You see, we are so stuck in our past, we're not able to move on from you know how our parents said something to us 20 years ago, right? Or how they did something 15 years ago, we don't allow ourselves to heal. It's like we are keeping those, you know, wounds inside and we have put locks on our hearts. So unlock your heart. Let the Quran enter. accept what the Quran is telling you. Try it, you know, try it and allow yourself to heal. When Allah subhanaw taala tells us to do it sound to our parents. What do you think? does Allah not know that parents are imperfect? What do

01:22:45--> 01:23:27

you think does the last part or not know that parents make mistakes when raising their children? Allah knows that, of course he knows that. But still he has told us not once in the Quran, but repeatedly in the Quran to be good towards our parents. Why? Because our healing will come when we will be good to our parents. And if you stay distant from your parents, and you stay on bad terms, you will never heal, you can pretend like you're better off, but you're actually not better off because that there's that aching pain inside, which you can try to put away but it will keep coming up again and again. And again. You can try to suppress it, but it will kill you, it will hurt you it

01:23:27--> 01:24:13

will eat you up from inside. So allow the Quran to enter your heart. Don't lock your heart up and lock in your heart of means that you don't accept the teachings of the Quran. So whatever I lost pounds on is telling us in the Quran accepted, follow it, try it and this is what will heal you. This is what will improve your condition. And this will allow you to unlock your full potential. remember Allah subhanaw taala has given you a lot of ability, he has put a lot of good in you. The Prophet sallallahu ertapenem explained that people are like ma did like like caves like mines, meaning there's so much good that's hiding inside. But that good is not going to come out until and

01:24:13--> 01:24:58

unless you benefit from the Quran. Allow the Quran to improve your life and see how beautiful Your life will become. But we unfortunately hold on to our wrong ways. You know, for example, our wrong attachments to certain individuals we know that we shouldn't be you know, maintaining a certain hold on relationship and we keep falling back into the same pattern. Why? Because we're afraid we'll never marry the person that we love. And then what happens we deprive ourselves, follow the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala will not deprive you. So your full potential will only be realized when you follow the Quran. don't deprive yourself. Don't lock yourself up. You have a treasure within. unlock

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

it with the Quran.

01:25:00--> 01:25:41

Indeed, those who reverted back to disbelief after guidance had become clear to them, shame upon entice them, and prolonged hope for them. That is because they said to those who disliked what Allah sent down, we will obey you. In part of the matter. These were the hypocrites. And you see, they disliked what Allah sent down. And Allah knows what they conceal. That How will it be When the angels take them in death, striking their faces and their backs? That is because they followed what angered Allah and disliked what earns his pleasure. So he rendered worthless their deeds, or do those in whose hearts is disease think that Allah would never expose their feelings of hatred, Allah

01:25:41--> 01:26:21

will expose that. And if we willed, We could show them to you, and you would know them by their mark, but you will surely know them by the tone of their speech, and Allah knows your deeds. So the fact is that we can try to pretend before people, but Allah subhanaw taala knows who we are and what we are, and we will surely test you until we make evident those who strive among you for the cause of Allah and the patient. And we will test your affairs, meaning we will not leave you untested and untried. Indeed, those who disbelieved and averted people from the path of Allah and oppose the messenger after guidance had become clear to them. Never will they harm Allah at all, and he will

01:26:21--> 01:26:59

render worthless their deeds, they will never be successful. Will you who have believed will be Allah and obey the messenger and do not invalidate your deeds will add to Berkeley to our Malecon? This is such a frightening verse, believers are being addressed that all believers obey Allah and the messenger, and do not waste your own deeds. How is it that a person destroys their own hard work by committing disbelief after a man or by following up their good deeds with sins, or by showing off, or by leaving their good deeds halfway unfinished by quitting, and also

01:27:00--> 01:27:43

also bedarra, meaning following innovation, because such deeds are rejected. All of that effort will be useless. Indeed, those who disbelieved and diverted people from the path of Allah and then died while they were disbelievers never will ALLAH forgive them. So do not weaken and call for peace while your superior and allies with you and will never deprive you of the reward of your deeds. This worldly life is only amusement and diversion. And if you believe in fear Allah, He will give you your rewards and not ask you for your properties. If he should ask you for them, and press you meaning if Allah compelled you obligated on you that you spend everything in his way, what would you

01:27:43--> 01:28:22

do, you would withhold, and he would expose your unwillingness. So the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has only commanded us of what is realistic, what is possible, what is easy. So let us do that happily, here you are those invited to spend in the cause of Allah. But among you are those who withhold out of greed. And whoever withholds only withholds benefit from himself. Any, when you don't spend in the way of a lie, you're actually depriving yourself and allies the free of need, while you are the needy, you need the reward in the hereafter. Unless religion doesn't need your financial contribution. And if you turn away, he will replace you with another people, then they

01:28:22--> 01:29:05

will not be the likes of you, Allahu Akbar. You see, giving one's wealth in the way of Allah is certainly a noble deed, the person who spends in worldly causes, but does not spend in Allah's way, then such a person is actually stingy. They're actually stingy. And we need to think about it. How much do we spend on our food? Just think about it. How much do we spend on our if thought any, we want luxurious thought every day, right? So we will spend on expensive ingredients because we want to try new recipes now that we're home. And we're trying one thing after the other Subhan Allah, and when it comes to spending just $1 a day in the way of Allah, we become stingy over there. Really,

01:29:06--> 01:29:50

any how much is our grocery bill, and how much is our charitable contribution this month, you know, remind yourself that we're supposed to be fasting, the you know, our attention is supposed to be less when it comes, you know, on eating on food, and greater attention should be on worship. So let's cut down a little bit on our grocery bill. And let us spend more in the way of Allah. Again, look into what you have, and see what you can give and try to be that extra generous now, and especially sign up for recurring donations so that you don't miss out giving, giving charity on any day or any night. And I would encourage you that for example, sign up for a recurring donation for

01:29:50--> 01:30:00

one religious cause, you know, for a religious Institute. Why? Because masajid religious Institute's they need financial help right now.

01:30:00--> 01:30:44

Because, you know, while your businesses, they may be, you know, all of us are concerned about our financial, you know, condition, but we need our massage to run, we need our religious institutions to be there because who's going to teach us and our children in the future. And Allah subhanaw taala, he doesn't need us because he can replace us with someone else. So if we are able to contribute, then this is our privilege. This is something that is benefiting us, not anybody else, this is going to benefit us. And at the same time, because it's the month of Ramadan, also spend on those who are hungry, those who are in need. And there are so many great causes, you know, so every

01:30:44--> 01:31:29

single day or every single night, give something for that also. And yes, you're giving a cat, but in addition to the cat, give extra Southern cartoon, because from income Maya bahawa Amaya buchalka in the Maya Bahadur nuptse, don't deprive yourself, don't deprive yourself because imagine if you give sadaqa on on later to look other than it is as if you gave sadaqa For how long? 4000 years, imagine the reward. So imagine the regret on the Day of Judgment, though, I wish I had spent that money on such and such cause instead of ordering pizza that night, so panela any we pay for Netflix, we play for our memberships, we play for, you know, we pay for so many things, why can we not pay for, you

01:31:29--> 01:32:20

know, a course fees? Why can we not pay for something that will in fact, benefit us, not just right now, but forever for eternity. And if you turn away, he will replace you with another people, then they will not be the likes of you. So the fact is, that if we don't work, if we don't strive, if we don't contribute, Allah will bring in other people. Allah doesn't need us. So let us not. So let us not be stingy with ourselves over here. Sorta total fat. So total fat is an amazing surah it's, it's a gift. fetta means victory. And this surah was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam right after the Treaty of her baby, which was actually a very difficult experience for the Prophet

01:32:20--> 01:33:06

sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims. They had gone to make Umrah in the sixth year of hedra. And the mushrikeen prevented them from entering mcha from entering and most of their haraam. Imagine they went all the way and they weren't allowed to enter. And so what happened is that the mushrikeen of Makkah, they instead agreed to peace negotiations. So they made a peace treaty. And that peace treaty was apparently not in the favor of the Muslims at all. Any all of the stipulations seemed to be unfavorable for the Muslims, and a lot of the Muslims were unhappy with the terms of that treaty including Robin Hood, Barbara de la Mourinho. However, unless a panel turtle called this for a

01:33:06--> 01:33:53

victory. So we learned that after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam slaughtered the the sacrificial animals, meaning the Muslims exited the state of Iran. And they headed back to Medina, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the surah calling the Treaty of her they via a manifest victory and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Look, the unzila area tune here Habu, Allah Yamuna dunya Jumeirah, that certainly Evers has been revealed to me which is more beloved to me than the entire world. And what is this verse in for lack of a better term Medina, indeed, we have given you a clear conquest. And this clear conquest is actually the Treaty of her davia, which was apparently a defeat

01:33:53--> 01:34:36

for the Muslims, because the Muslims were neither able to perform Romana at that time, nor were the conditions of the treaty in their favor. But still, Allah subhanaw taala called that a victory. Abdullah bin Massoud and other companions would say that you consider the conquest of Makkah to be unfair. While to us alpha is actually the the Treaty of her baby in Missouri said that there was no conquest greater than her they BIA because the machine finally made peace with the Muslims. And this allowed many people to finally interact with the Muslims and listen to the Quran. And within the next three years, many, many people embraced Islam. So this is a proof that when you avoid conflict

01:34:36--> 01:34:59

for the sake of Allah, and you humble yourself for the sake of Allah, then Allah will certainly honor you. This is a proof that when you accept with real law, with happiness with contentment, what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed that Allah subhanaw taala will not fail you He will not give you failure. rather he will bring you success because a lot of times good time

01:35:00--> 01:35:45

You know, good opportunities are coming our way how through hardships, and you have to go through that painful step in order to reap the benefits. So this is why don't resent the hardships in life, consider them to be a father, a conquest, a victory. Lele fear Allah, Allah who matter for them, I mean them be kawamata A harm that Allah me forgive for you what proceeded of your sin and what will follow and complete his favor upon you and guide you to a straight path Subhan Allah, as a result of this great patience, look at the reward that the Prophet sallallahu earlier said of God, which is complete forgiveness, and perfection of Allah, his blessing, and complete guidance on the straight

01:35:45--> 01:36:27

path. And even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was forgiven, for all of us, for all of his shortcomings, yet he strove and he exerted a great deal in worship. Imagine if we were told that all of your sins are forgiven? What would we do? We would just sit back and perhaps indulge in a few wrong things. staford Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stood in prayer for so long, and this is voluntary prayer, that his feet swelled up, and I should have done more and asked him that, why, why? Why did you do that? When Allah has forgiven all your sins, and she mentioned this, when Allah has forgiven for you might have caught them in lumbee kawamata a home and

01:36:27--> 01:37:07

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If Allah were hibou, an akuna abdon shockula should I not like to be a grateful servant? So remember, one is to worship Allah from a place of fear, and that is fine, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed out of love and gratitude, and that is a higher degree. You know, what is that you do your Salah, because you're like, if I don't pray, then I'll be punished. And you just do it for the sake of doing it. Right. But the other is that you do it with happiness, with love, with gratitude that he Allah, you gave me trophies, your Allah, you gave me this and you gave me that, yeah, Allah, you are so generous, you are so kind, I love you, my

01:37:07--> 01:37:52

lord. And with that feeling you pray that prayer will be far more enjoyable. And and remember that your reward for prayer for worship is in proportion to the you know, the effort that you exert, and how you feel in that prayer in that worship way on sort of Cologne, Asana, Aziza, and that Allah may aid you with a mighty victory. It is he who sent down tranquility, into the hearts of the believers, that they would increase in faith along with their present faith, and to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth. And that And ever is Allah knowing and wise. So we see that the Sahaba experienced sakeena tranquility in her they BIA how that even though it was such a tense moment

01:37:52--> 01:38:29

where people could have resolved, you know, could have turned to a physical, you know, a violent conflict that was very much inevitable. But still, they experienced Sakina. So they were able to put their trust in Allah and believe in his promise and be patient over his decree, they were able to have composure, so their fear was relieved and their sadness was comforted. So because of Sakina they were dignified in their men are and they were wise in their actions. So we turn to the companions as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the real messenger of Allah we know what will happen to you now, because Allah has said Leah Farah like Allah who met the condom I mean Lambie

01:38:29--> 01:38:40

cometa Aha. But from our you follow Bina, what about us? So let's reveal the following verse. And that he may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens.

01:38:43--> 01:39:24

And that he may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide there in eternally and removed from them their misdeeds And ever is that in the sight of Allah a great attainment. So remember the great the real success is of the Hereafter, and that he may punish the hypocrite men and hypocrite women and the polytheist men and apologies to women, those who assume about Allah and assumption of evil nature upon them as a misfortune of evil nature, and Allah has become angry with them, and has cursed them and prepared for them hell and evil it is as a destination and to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth, and ever is Allah

01:39:24--> 01:39:59

Exalted in Might and Wise, or prophet Indeed, we have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner, that you people may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and honor Him, and respect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and exalt Allah morning and afternoon. So our job is to believe in Allah and in His Messenger, and to also honor the messenger to a zero who and remember Thorazine is to help and cooperate, which is not possible without honoring the command of the prophets of Allah who are who set it up. So to zero who Bay

01:40:00--> 01:40:42

simply means obey Him. And then to work through who dopey is to respect with to respect someone, which is to believe in their dignity and their honor, and then verbally express that to. So we should also show that respect when we talk about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So obey Him, and then also show respect to him when, especially when you're talking about him. And sometimes we think that, you know, believing in the Prophet sallallahu ariosa means that every time you mentioned him, you say Al Habib, and that you you know, sing something in his praise. That is not only that is not the only way of showing respect to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, Allah subhanaw

01:40:42--> 01:41:25

taala has told us over here to zero to a crew, which is through obedience, and through other obedience, meaning follow his comments, follow his Sunnah. That is how you show respect to him. That is how you honor Him. And then when you take his name, mentioned his name properly, with respect, and then you glorify Allah, morning and evening. Indeed, those who, indeed those who pledge allegiance to you, they're actually pledging allegiance to Allah, the hand of Allah is over their hands. So he who breaks his word only breaks it to the detriment of himself, and he who fulfills that which He has promised Allah, He will give him a great reward. Those who remain behind the

01:41:25--> 01:42:04

Bedouins will say to you, our properties and our families occupied so ask forgiveness for us. We were so busy at home, you know, children, and housework too busy, so make make the offer us they say with their tongues what is not within their hearts, say then who could prevent Allah at all, if he intended for you harm or intended for you benefit, meaning these are all excuses, rather ever is Allah with what you do acquainted, but you thought that the messenger and the believers would never return to their families. This is what they thought when the Prophet sallallahu Urdu son was going for Umbra. They thought that you know what, they're going in the lion's den, they'll never survive.

01:42:05--> 01:42:39

This is what they were hoping for ever. And that was made pleasing in your hearts and he assumed an assumption of evil and became a people ruined. And whoever has not believed in Allah and His Messenger than indeed we have prepared for the disbelievers a blaze and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes when he wills and ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. Those who remain behind will say when you set out toward the war booty to take it meaning another expedition, they will say let us follow you, meaning let us accompany us so that we can also have a share of the benefits. They wish to change the words of

01:42:39--> 01:43:18

Allah say never Will you follow us. Thus did Allah say before and this shows us that when we deliberately step back from certain opportunities that Allah gives us, then we are deprived in the future, we are not given the same opportunities again. So they will say rather you envy us but in fact, they were not understanding except a little say to those who remain behind of the Bedouins you will be called to face the people of great military might, you may fight them or they will submit so if you obey Allah will give you a good reward. But if you turn away as you turned away before, He will punish you with a painful punishment. There is not upon the blind any guilt, or upon the lame

01:43:18--> 01:43:55

any guilt, or upon the ill any guilt for remaining behind meeting someone who has a genuine excuse unless puntata knows that and whoever obeys a line is messenger. He will admit him to gardens beneath which rivers flow but whoever turns away He will punish him with a painful punishment, luck adorably Allah certainly was Allah please with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you under the tree. This was at who they be. When it was Manuel de la Mourinho went to Makkah to negotiate and he did not return. Then the Muslims thought that Earth Manuel de la Horne who had been killed, they were not prepared for battle, but they still gave their pledge to the Prophet

01:43:55--> 01:44:33

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will fight if needed, we will defend ourselves if needed. And this was the Sakina that our last panel tada sent upon them, and he knew what was in their hearts. So he sent down tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest and much more booty which they will take at Everest, Allah Exalted in Might and Wise, Allah has promised too much booty that you will take in the future, and has hastened for you this victory and withheld the hands of people from you, that it may be assigned for the believers, and that he may guide you to a straight path. And he promises other victories that you were so far unable to realize which Allah

01:44:33--> 01:45:00

had already encompassed And ever is Allah over all things competent. And if those McCants who disbelieve had fought you at her davia they would have turned their backs in flight, then they would not find a protector or helper. This is the established Way of Allah which has occurred before and never will you find in the way of Allah and he change and it is he who withheld their hands from you and your hands from them within the area of Makkah, after he called

01:45:00--> 01:45:40

You to overcome them And ever is Allah of what you do seeing. So panela so many benefits are mentioned over here. The benefits that came about because of the Treaty of her they BIA and it is also made clear that if Allah tada wanted, he could have let the war happen, and that would only cause the machine to suffer. But Allah subhanaw taala let this soul happen, peace happened, because through this much better benefits were brought to the Muslims. They are the ones who disbelieved and obstructed you from a muscular harm, while the offering was prevented from reaching its place of sacrifice. And if not for believing men and believing women whom you did not know living in Makkah,

01:45:40--> 01:46:18

then you might trample them, and there would befall you, because of them dishonor without your knowledge, then you would have been permitted to enter Makkah, and Allah subhanaw taala would have allowed you to fight. But alas, Pandora did not in order to protect them. This was so that Allah might admit to His mercy whom He willed, if they had been, if they had been apart from them, we would have punished those who disbelieved among them with painful punishment. So the thing is that when things happen, we don't fully understand all that is happening behind the scenes, we only look at the surface, one aspect which is before us, and Allah subhanaw taala knows, you know, there is

01:46:18--> 01:47:01

wisdom behind why Allah subhanaw taala allow certain things to happen. We only see one side, only one aspect, Allah subhanaw taala is protecting us from so many different from so many different ways. So trust Allah subhanaw taala has decree and accept his decree and realize that it is the best even if you don't fully comprehend it at the moment. When those who disbelieved had put into their hearts chauvinism, the chauvinism of the time of ignorance, and this was their pride and bias against the Muslims, you know, blind, you know, bias against the Muslims, because Never before had anyone been prevented from entering Mecca and performing or this was the first time ever, but Allah

01:47:01--> 01:47:43

sent down his tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers and imposed upon them the word of righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it And ever is Allah of all things knowing. So we see that those who have Taqwa, then Allah also gives them the ability to speak with the core and those who have that, you know, J Leija in them, bias in them, then they are prevented from even thinking rationally, and their efforts are useless. lockout sakala who rasulillah who will help certainly has Allah show to His Messenger the vision in truth, you will surely enter oath must do that how long if Allah wills in safety, with your head shaved and here

01:47:43--> 01:48:27

shortened, not fearing anyone, he knows what you did not know and has arranged before that a conquest near at hand you intended only on well, and Allah subhanaw taala wanted something much more and better for you. So yes, the Muslims did not get to perform around the same year, but they got to perform them not the following here. And then through through that trip, they didn't just get a camera. They also got so many other benefits and all of them are listed in the sutra and when we studied the Sierra, we see how much good came out of sort of good idea. So trust Allah subhanaw taala has plan who will lead he also Salah Sula, who Bill houda It is he who sent His messenger with

01:48:27--> 01:49:09

guidance and the religion of truth, to manifest it over all religion. And sufficient is Allah as witness, Mohammed the rasulillah Mohammed Slovak sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him, his companions are forceful against the disbelievers merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating and prayer seeking bounty from Allah and His pleasure. This was their outward appearance. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of frustration, meaning you can tell by their faces that they didn't sleep at night, you can tell that they were worshipping Allah, that is their description in the photo. And their description in the

01:49:09--> 01:49:51

Gospel in the NGO is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them. So they grow firm and stand upon their stocks, delighting the sores so that Allah enraged by them, the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them, forgiveness and a great reward. So this is the description of the companions in the Injeel. And this isn't the book of Mark this it says, This is what the kingdom of God is like a man scatter seed on the ground, night and day whether he sleeps or gets up the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how, all by itself the soil produces grain first the stock then the head than the full colonel in the head. So

01:49:52--> 01:49:59

the companions How were they, they were just a few at the beginning. You know, those who were afraid and look at how

01:50:00--> 01:50:44

Loss of Panasonic caused them to grow and increase. And now Subhanallah there were so strong that the mushrikeen agreed to make a peace treaty with them. They finally recognize them and accepted their force. Allahu Akbar surah Thornhill Girard Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, all you who have believed, do not put yourselves before Allah and His messenger. This shows us that we should not give preference to what we think over what Allah and His Messenger have said, have commanded, we should neither contradict what Allah has said what His Messenger has said, nor should we pretend like we know better, do not say, in contradiction to the Quran that I think otherwise, I feel

01:50:44--> 01:51:27

otherwise. But what about this? And what about that? No, our response should be some error now will occur Nah, but fear Allah, Indeed Allah is hearing and knowing, all you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or be loud to him and speech, like the loudness of some of you to others, meaning when you talk to him, be very respectful. And when you speak in his presence again, do not be loud. Why lest your deeds become worthless, while you perceive not think about it, if we're not allowed to raise our voice above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then what will become of us if we raised our

01:51:27--> 01:52:10

opinions, our analogies over his clear statements. Remember, we are supposed to follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we were supposed to show utmost respect. And this includes showing respect when we visit his Masjid sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So when you go to the robot, please, please do not raise your voice. Do not be rude over there and start fighting with one another and start running. As if you were running in a mall, no show up, even in the way that you walk. There were people once Who were you know, talking loudly in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and remodeled your loved one who called him and he said, Where are you from? Who are you

01:52:10--> 01:52:49

guys and they said, We are visited. We are visitors in Medina. So he said, if you were from Medina, I would have punished you, I would have been very strict with you. Because we're not allowed to raise our voices in the midst of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this also includes that when you are in a gathering of knowledge when you're sitting in the presence of a scholar, then be respectful, because the scholars are the heirs of the prophets. So instead of you know showing objections and and denying, there should be a willingness to understand so think good about Allah and His messenger. Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah, they are the

01:52:49--> 01:53:16

ones whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness, for them is forgiveness and great reward, meaning this is proof of dukkha sooner than her giraffe teaches us good manners. Because remember, it is not just enough for us to do you know, to follow the rules, in terms of you know, you know, related to rituals only. This is how we're supposed to fast this is, this is when we start fasting This is when we end our fast Yes, this is important, but other

01:53:18--> 01:53:56

good manners, this is a major part of our religion and pseudo Hurrah teaches us other and other begins with knowing how to show proper other to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Indeed, those who call you from behind the chambers, most of them do not use reason. You see people new visitors would come into Medina and they would stand outside the houses of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam his apartments and they would say yeah, Muhammad, Elena, please come out. We used to talk to you for stuffit Allah so disrespectful. So Allah says most of the people do not use reason. And if they had been patient until you could come out to them, it would have been better

01:53:56--> 01:54:34

for them. But Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And this shows us that part of showing up to someone that you are seeking knowledge from is to not constantly nag and interrupt them. You know, when people would go to Ibn are Vasco de la Mourinho to ask him something, they wouldn't even knock at his door, they would just sit outside and wait for him to come out and then ask him they wouldn't disturb him. But we think that if someone you know is acknowledged, we have full right to disturb them at any time, send message after message after message, harass them with one email after the other any when they're able to they will answer but we we you know prioritize ourselves and we

01:54:34--> 01:54:35

forget about other

01:54:36--> 01:54:59

all you who have believed if there comes to you a disobedient one with information investigate lest you harm people out of ignorance and become over what you have done regretful meaning only take action. After you have ascertained the news that has reached you. You see there is a background to this verse But almost thought they had embraced Islam and on a certain day they were supposed to give. There's a

01:55:00--> 01:55:35

So they sent a group of people to find out why the mystery of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was delayed. Now the person, the emissary of the Prophet salallahu, early center, he came from Medina. And as he was approached, as he was approaching them, the group of people who, who was coming from bunu muster up towards Medina. And he this was a group of them. So this man who was coming from Medina, he thought that these people are coming to fight me, because they were armed. And at that time, you have to be armed when traveling through the desert for your own safety. So he went and told the Prophet sallallahu, where to send them that they have rejected to give the car, they have

01:55:35--> 01:56:20

rejected the cab, and they're coming to kill me. So basically, this meant that now let's prepare to fight against them. And as they were contemplating that, the group of the booster rock, they came to Medina, and they came to inquire what had happened. So this shows us the dangers of misinformation, the dangers of reading in of acting on impulse, and it is very important that before taking any action, first of all, we find out what is it that we are dealing with, who is it that we're dealing with before passing on any information, investigate, because a fantastic person, a person who was sinful, and he his views is based on what doubt and assumption because he doesn't have that fear of

01:56:20--> 01:57:07

Allah. And since don't pinch him that much. So he he, you know, blows things out of proportion. So it is very important that when you receive any information, then investigate before taking action, and do not pass on everything you hear, because this could be very offensive near Allah subhanaw taala. And it also shows the lack of honesty, the lack of integrity in a person when he passes on everything that he hears, and there's severe punishment for this severe punishment for spreading lies. The Prophet sallallahu earlier center was shown a man whose cheek was being torn stuff that Allah his cheek was being torn, with, you know, an iron hook from one side and then the other side,

01:57:07--> 01:57:44

and then the back to the first side, and then back to the next day. And when he asked that, who was this man, he was told this is the person who used to tell lies, and the people would report those lies on his authority, till this spread all over the world. So be very, very careful, where alemu and you should know that among you is the messenger of Allah. If you were to obey you in much of the matter, you would be in difficulty but Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts and has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience. Those are the rightly guided, who are the rightly guided the people who have a man in their hearts, in whose

01:57:44--> 01:58:26

hearts a man is adorned, because only then they will be able to follow the guidance. So we should also make girl Allahumma Xena be Xena till he man would your unknown who that Amata Deen or Allah adorn us with the adornment of faith and make us rightly guided those who guide others it is it is as bounty from Allah and favor, and Allah is Knowing and wise. And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, than fight against it, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the command of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them and justice and act justly.

01:58:26--> 01:59:04

Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. So this shows us that when people are fighting, when Muslims are fighting one another, then don't just be a bystander. Don't just be a silent observer. It's not just their problem. It's also your problem. So you better intervene and try to make peace between them. Because it is like charity that Allah subhanaw taala loves. This is one of the deeds that allows puntata likes, the believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers. And it's unfortunate that when people are fighting, others will just sit back and enjoy the fight, they will enjoy the argument, and they will watch it escalate. In fact, they will add fuel to the

01:59:04--> 01:59:46

fire so that it will escalate and fear Allah that you may receive mercy. So we see here the believers are supposed to be brothers, any This is the bond that Allah subhanaw taala has created within believers, that we should show respect to one another, we should watch out for one another. Even if we're not related, we still have to watch out for one another. Why because blood relations will suffer if the religion is not the same, but religious bonds will remain permanent in the hereafter. So remember that all believers are related by a man regardless of the difference in color, race, culture, background language. So this is why we should look out for each other and what

01:59:46--> 02:00:00

is it that causes conflict, those things are mentioned here. Now, all you who have believed, let not a people ridicule and other people, perhaps they may be better than them, nor let women ridicule other women. Perhaps they may be better

02:00:00--> 02:00:36

than them, meaning the person whom you're making fun of thinking that they're less than you. Because oftentimes it is the faults and people that are picked on and that is how they're teased. So it's quite possible that those people are actually better than you. And I had these we learned it is sufficient evil for a man to look down on his Muslim brother. So when you begin to see faults in other people think that what if they have some really good qualities because of which Allah subhanaw taala likes them, because of which they're actually better than than me. And sometimes you see people feel insecure about themselves or they have low self esteem, or they have some jealousy or

02:00:36--> 02:01:18

some inferiority complex or superiority complex, because of which they make fun of others, they begin to attack them. And by that they feel better about themselves. And this is really reprehensible, the son of the righteous, they were extremely careful about making fun of others, and would have been shut up and said that if I see a man drinking milk directly from a goat other and I laugh at him, I fear that I will end up doing the same thing that he has done, meaning I will fall in the same behavior, and then I will also be laughed at so Do not laugh at someone, even if they fall off or fumble when they speak. You know, sometimes the person is speaking and they you know,

02:01:18--> 02:01:55

they have a slip of the tongue and it sounds really funny. So we start laughing at them. And then Okay, it's, you know, natural to, you know, giggle a little at that time, but then later on, tease them about it, and keep reminding them and keep you know the teasing them about it. This is very reprehensible. We learned that once I shall do Mourinho saw some people laughing at Mina. So she asked, What is it that's making you laugh? They said, Oh, this person stumbled, you know, on a rope and he was about to fall, and he was about to break his neck and he was about to lose his eyes. So she said don't laugh, because I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu earlier said I'm saying that

02:01:55--> 02:02:40

if a Muslim runs a thorn, meaning gets pricked by a thorn, or gets into trouble, more more, you know, worse than this, meaning whether something small or big happens to a believer, there is a short for him a higher rank and his sins are obliterated. So panela here is a person who suffers in front of you. their sins just got erased, their ranks just got elevated and you are laughing at them. You are belittling them. How unfortunate. Well, Atal Mizzou and fusa calm and Do not insult one another. Do not insult yourselves. Because the thing is that when you insult someone, you're actually insulting yourself, because now you're inviting that person to insult you in revenge. And

02:02:40--> 02:03:21

when you insult a Muslim, what are you doing? You're actually insulting yourself because Muslims are supposed to be like one body, right? So don't pick on yourself and insult yourself. Don't insult one another. And we learn that this is not the way of the believer lay cell movement of the parent. The believer is not foreign at all being someone who insults and do not even retaliate by insulting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if a man abuses and shames you for something which he finds in you, then you do not shame him for something which you find in Him, He will bear the evil consequences for it. So don't take revenge like this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

02:03:21--> 02:04:08

do not look for the faults of other people and do not spy on one another, do not hate each other do not deserve to one another and all Allah slaves be brothers. Remember, it's a major sin to attack the honor of a Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said that the most prevalent kind of interest is going to lengths in talking unjustly against a Muslims honor. How is this interest? This is interest This is river because people will attack someone's honor and reputation, why to make their own name and reputation, right? make a video insulting the character and the religion of a reputable famous person and what will happen all of a sudden you will get 100 likes you will get

02:04:08--> 02:04:50

maybe 50 more followers and now you will become more famous stuffit Allah This is so low, so cheap, while at the Napa Zoo Bill uncarved and do not call each other by offensive nicknames. So remember, nicknames should be respectful. And if someone does not like to be called by a certain name or title, then please do not annoy them and do not hurt them by calling them with a name that they do not like. And if you do that, to tease them, it is said wretched is the name of disobedience after once fades, meaning you have a man and this is what you do. This is wretched, this is horrible. So do not do any of these things in any way. Whether it is through the signals of the eye or through

02:04:50--> 02:04:59

words or gestures or body language by writing rap video, any format and whoever does not repent. Then it is those who are the wrongdoers

02:05:00--> 02:05:40

To remember the life of the believer, the wealth of the believer and the honor of the believer, all of that is sacred. All you have believed, avoid much negative assumption. Indeed, some assumption is said, and we make assumptions very quickly over what someone has said, you know, we overanalyze, we overthink and then we form judgments. What is the one it is the wrong judgment? The Prophet sallallahu radiosonde said beware of suspicion for it as the worst of false tales, any it's completely baseless. It's a lie. And Abdullah said that the person who has had something stolen from him continues to be suspicious until he becomes worse than the thief, Allahu Akbar. Yanni, the thief

02:05:40--> 02:05:57

committed one sin by committing theft, but when you are assuming about so many different people, oh, he stole Oh, histo histo histo. And then you are acting on that false assumption, then guess what, now you have earned more sin than the person who committed theft.

02:05:58--> 02:06:40

So be careful and avoid those matters which lead to a bad assumption, and do not spy or backbite each other. Meaning do not pursue the faults of people, neither search for them, nor talk about them, nor stock people online, do not spy over them. No, nobody hired you to do that, to see what the mistakes of people are. And then to spread them. It's better if you mind your own business. And if you see a fault in someone inadvertently, then focus on Islam on correcting them. And if you're not in a position to correct them, then again Mind your own business. The thing is that the Justice spying on one another, this actually corrupts people, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

02:06:40--> 02:06:54

If you search for the faults of the people, you will corrupt them or you will nearly corrupt them. And this is a serious offense. We learned a Hadees that if someone listens to the talk of some people who do not want him to listen to he's eavesdropping,

02:06:55--> 02:07:35

or they run away from him and you're trying to get away from him. They don't want him to listen to their conversation. But he still manages to listen through different ways in these days. So panela people will hide, you know, cameras and things like that. Then molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection, molten lead in ears, a stuffit Allah, would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead, do not back bite, because backbiting is like this. You will detest it, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and merciful. The thing is that we take the matter of backbiting very, very lightly, we don't consider it to be a sin. What is

02:07:35--> 02:08:12

backbiting? backbiting is that you talk about a person behind their back in a way or something which is in them, but they dislike that you talk about it, meaning it is true, they have that fault. It is not an imaginary fault. It is a real fault in them, but they don't want you to talk about it. They will not like it, if they find out that you were talking about it. And this could be something about their body, about their manner about their work about their behavior, about their spouse, about their parents about their children, you know about the fact that they frown or their smile or their, you know, their teeth, something about their eyebrows, whatever it is, I feel dilla Mourinho

02:08:12--> 02:08:55

mentioned the short height of someone. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and said that you have just, you know, don't LIBOR, any This is also a LIBOR. So commenting over people unnecessarily Oh, she's short, or she's tall, she's this she's that he's this, he's that, or, you know, commenting on people all the time. This is like cannibalism. This is like cannibalism, eating a human being an eating a dead person. And that that person is your own brother a stuffing Allah, this is so graphic and so disgusting. Why? Because if you think about it, a person who is dead is not able to defend themselves, right? And just like that a person who is absent is not able to defend themselves. And

02:08:55--> 02:09:36

sometimes this happens that in a meeting, when someone is not there, we can lay all the blame on them, that you know what, this is their fault, I couldn't do my work because it's their fault, where land because they're not able to defend themselves, we take advantage over there. So be careful, because when you misrepresent someone, you put you portray them as someone who is guilty of something that they have not done. And this is worse than LIBOR. LIBOR is that you talk about something that is a fault which is in a person, and Bhutan is a slander that you accuse someone of something that is not even in them, that is worse. So just because a believer is absent, or is

02:09:36--> 02:09:59

unable to defend themselves, then it doesn't give you the right to attack them. If you attack them. It is like you're eating of their flesh. You're eating a dead human being. That is your brother wonder Yeah, the Billa even our boss will de la hora en who explained that eating the dead is forbidden. It is detestable and just like that. Lieber is forbidden. It is detestable Qatada said that

02:10:00--> 02:10:34

Just as you refuse to eat the meat of a dead human, you must refuse to eat the flesh of your living brother by backbiting him. So remember that backbiting is how long and the way of the righteous was that they would neither back by themselves, nor would they allow people to back bite in front of them. So when someone you know, back bites another in front of you defend that believer don't participate in that. Our beloved Mr. Wood said that once we were with the Prophet sallallahu ariosa when a man got up and left, and when he did, then another man began speaking ill of him. So the Prophet sallallahu radiosonde said, clean your teeth, floss your teeth. So the man said, why I

02:10:34--> 02:11:11

didn't eat anything. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, no doubt you ate the flesh of your brother, a staford Allah. And remember that backbiting is not just with words, it can also be with gestures with the hand, the signal of the hand or the eye, or a smirk even, or something that we write or type. So let lay yellow to bow to combat robot do not backbite our modern OS was once going with his companions when he came across a dead mule. And imagine a dead animal the body had swelled up. He said by Allah, if a person eats this meat to his fill, that would be better for him than eating the flesh of a Muslim.

02:11:12--> 02:11:55

I challenge you go stand in front of the garbage can look inside and look at the rotting garbage. And ask yourself would I eat this? Would I eat this? And if I will not eat this, then I better not eat the flesh of other Muslims by insulting them by backbiting them, or Mattila Horton who said, Yeah, come with the con nurse for in the Huda or people beware of talking about people, because this is a sickness, this is a disease where I lay can be the killer, and you must make Vicar of Allah you must talk about Allah for in the who Shiva because that is a healing. That is a cure. So even when you're bitter about something, you're hurt because of what someone has said, then you know what,

02:11:55--> 02:12:32

there's no benefit that you're going to get by talking bad about them. What you're going to, what is going to benefit you is when you remember Allah when you say what Ufa will do, Emeril, Allah, Allah knows the truth, or you have believed, indeed we have created you from male and female, and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and acquainted. So who is most likely the one who refrains from the reprehensible things that are mentioned over here? the Bedouins say we have believed say, you have not yet believed but say instead, we have submitted for faith has not

02:12:32--> 02:13:11

yet entered your hearts. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, he will not deprive you from your deeds of anything. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and then doubt not, but strive with their properties of their lives and the cause of Allah. It is those who are the truthful, say what you acquaint Allah with your religion, while Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And Allah is Knowing of all things. They consider it a favor to you that they have accepted Islam, say, do not consider your Islam a favor to me. Rather Allah has conferred favor upon you that he has guided you

02:13:11--> 02:13:52

to the faith if you should be truthful. Indeed, Allah knows the unseen aspects of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is seeing of what you do sort of cough syrup cough is a surah that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would recite on big occasions in large gatherings, he would recite it even in Juma hotbar and in fudger, salah and read Salah, so the Sunnah needs to be revived. Men especially should try to memorize the Surah At least the beginning of it. Why so that they can recite it when they're leading Salah right when they're leading their family in Salah even in a budget, you can recite to the core of your reviving a Sunnah when Allah gives you the trophy to give him a hotbar

02:13:52--> 02:14:37

again, recite some of the surah revive this sooner. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the sutra so frequently on the member that only a sham been talisa said that I memorized sort of off just by listening to it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what is the surah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim cough by the honored Quran Al Majeed Quran is honorable. But they wonder, but they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say this is an amazing thing. When we have died and have become dust, when we return to life, then that is a distant return. How's that possible? We know what the earth diminishes of them. And with us is

02:14:37--> 02:15:00

a retaining record everything is recorded with the law, but they denied the truth when it came to them. So they are in a confused condition. So the fact is that when when people reject the truth and they are in confusion, have they not looked at the heaven above them, how we structured it and adorned it and how it has no rifts and the earth, we spread.

02:15:00--> 02:15:40

Get out and cast they're in firmly set mountains and made grow. They're in something of every beautiful kind, giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns to Allah, and we have sent down, bless said rain from the sky. Remember, rain has Baraka in it. It is a mobile rock camp. So even our basketball de la Mourinho whenever it would rain, he would order his servant to have his clothes put out for him, because he would go outside and get wet, and then immediately change. And this is something that we should also do that when it rains. Allow the rain to fall on you because it is Mambo Baraka and it is blessing water, but then don't stay wet, go change immediately. For

02:15:40--> 02:16:22

unbuttoned cobija net in and made grow there by gardens and grain from the harvest, and lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers as provision for the servants and we have given life thereby to a dead land. Thus is the resurrection that people have known denied before them and the companions of the well and some old and are odd and fit our own and the brothers of Luke and the companions of the thicket and the people of towbar all denied the messengers. So my threat was justly fulfilled. Did we fail in the first creation? Did Allah get tired No way, but they are in confusion over a new creation, meaning they think allies that they think that it is difficult for

02:16:22--> 02:17:07

Allah to recreate people, why would it be difficult when he created the first creation, and we have already created men and know what his soul whispers to him and we are closer to him than his jugular vein. We are closer to him than his jugular vein. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala is well aware of our thoughts, all those connections that are happening in your brain. And he we cannot even keep track of that right? It's mind boggling to even think about the millions of connections that are happening in your brain within a single second, Allahu Akbar. Any thought that crosses your head, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. No one knows us as well as Allah subhanaw taala does. And Allah

02:17:07--> 02:17:44

subhanaw taala has appointed angels to record our deeds. He doesn't need to do that. But these angels are appointed. Why? Because records are being made as evidence against us. This is why it Kapila hazlemere Quinta, Fear Allah, no matter where you are, when the two receivers receive seated on the right and on the left, meaning these are the two angels. Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared to record. So every grep every gasp and every word, even if backbiting any it is being recorded.

02:17:45--> 02:18:29

We are constantly under surveillance. We are being watched. So have regard for that. And angels are recording wotja at soccer, automotive mental health, and the intoxication of death will bring the truth meaning the certain reality of death of every human being it will come that is what you were trying to avoid meaning all your life you were trying to run away from death but here it is. And look at the word jet. This is past tense, because it shows that death is near and it is certain. And we see Sokoto mode because death is painful. This is why we should make Dora Allah whom are in me I know how murottal mode was a karate mode or Allah helped me against the difficulties the pangs of

02:18:29--> 02:19:08

death, and the horn will be blown. That is the day of carrying out the threat and every soul will come with it a driver and a witness being the angels will be right there. As soon as a person comes out of his grave he will not be able to escape. One Angel will drive him another angel will be a witness against him. It will be said you were certainly in on mindfulness of this and we removed from you your cover. So your sight this day is sharp meaning now you see the news of light before you now the veil of the unseen has been removed. And this companion the angel will say this record is what is with me prepared. So there is an angel to testify. And now there is also written evidence

02:19:08--> 02:19:54

of all that you have done. Allah will say throw into hell. Every obstinate disbeliever preventer of good manjeri lil Hi You see selfish, stingy aggressor and doubter who made us equal with Allah another day t, then throw him into the severe punishment. His devil companion will say, Our Lord, I did not make him transgress. I didn't force him, but he himself was an extreme error. A Level two do not dispute before me. While I had already presented to you the warning, the word will not be changed with me, and never will I be unjust to the servants. You see today, we easily justify or wrong saying oh shaitan affected me. I mean, on the day of judgment, children will not take any

02:19:54--> 02:20:00

responsibility. So don't blame shaitan and then settle with that. Okay, I thought that was

02:20:00--> 02:20:10

was a bootstrap and didn't force you. You chose your words and your behaviors take responsibility so that you can seek forgiveness and seek forgiveness, right the wrong

02:20:11--> 02:20:59

Yeoman ercoli jahannam hallym talathi What a kulu helmy moseyed on the day we will say to hell have you been filled and it will say, Are there some more stuff federal law, so many people will end up in hell May Allah protect us, and paradise will be brought near to the righteous, not far, it will be said, This is what you were promised for every a web hell field for every returner to Allah and keeper of his covenant, who is a web, a web is the person who glorifies and praises Allah repeatedly. And a web is the person who remembers a lot in private, when alone, and he remembers his sins and seeks forgiveness. And also he remembers a low and he's amongst people, he thinks of Allah,

02:20:59--> 02:21:33

and he seeks forgiveness and every gathering. So a web is basically the person who keeps turning back to Allah with obedience with repentance with is the fault. And this is a habit that we need to develop a web is a person who keeps turning back to Allah with worship. And this is why Salah to do her is called Salah to a well being. Because in the morning at that time, there is no particular prayer that has been the end there is no obligatory prayer, right. But there's only a person who likes to turn back to Allah, who will pray at that time also between fudger and lower because it's a long duration.

02:21:35--> 02:22:19

And her field, her field is the person who diligently guards his tongue, his thoughts, his actions, his worship, who feared the Most Merciful, unseen, and came with the heart returning in repentance, and turn it in peace. This is the day of eternity Alo aquebogue. They will have whatever they wish they were in and with us is more even more. And what is that seeing a law? Allah approval? And how many a generation before them did we destroy? Who are greater than them in striking power and had explored throughout the lens? They traveled far and wide? Is there any place of escape? Is there any place in the world you can run to? So that you can save yourself from a loss punishment? Indeed, and

02:22:19--> 02:22:58

that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present. So this shows us that we should be present in our heart attentive, when we're listening to the Quran, only then will will we be able to derive benefit. And we did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days and they're touched us no weariness, Allah did not get tired. First bit, so be patient over what they say. and exalt Allah with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun. And before it's setting somebody has mentioned and the speed is mentioned, this shows us that the way you get some of the way you practice patience, and the way that you increase in your patience,

02:22:59--> 02:23:44

when you're dealing with difficulties in life is by making the speech by glorifying Allah in the morning and in the evening. Because this be strengthens your heart and in and in part of the night exalt Him and after prostration so in the night, we Yes, we pray Salah meaningfully I'm Elaine but we should also make this be don't just disappear a little bit earlier panel a bit earlier and such then record that is good. But even between the throwaway prayer between your pmla make the spear Subhan Allah will Hamlet Illa Allah Illa Illa Allah Subhana Allah He will hamdu lillahi Subhan Allah He will be handy here Subhan Allah had Arlene and listen. On the day when the caller will call out

02:23:44--> 02:24:32

from a place that is near the day they will hear the blast of the horn and truth that is the day of emergence from the graves. Indeed it is we who give life and cause of death and to us is the destination on the day the earth breaks away from them and they emerge rapidly. That is a gathering easy for us. We are most knowing of what they say. And you are not over them a tyrant, meaning you are not to compel people to believe but remind by the Quran whoever fears my threats similar to that Yeah. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim by those winds, scattering dust dispersing wind storms and those clouds carrying a load of water and those ships sailing with ease Allahu Akbar. And those angels

02:24:32--> 02:24:54

appropriating each matter in Novato Arduino lasar indeed what you are promised is true, meaning the Day of Judgment is certain. So take lesson from the blowing wind and the falling rain that the Lord at whose command all of this has happening. The day of judgment will also happen at his command. You don't see the wind but you feel its effect.

02:24:55--> 02:25:00

Just like that. You don't know when the hour is coming but your life is a proof that

02:25:00--> 02:25:41

There is going to be a Recompense. And the one who is able to do these amazing things creates such amazing phenomenon. Why would it be hard for him to resurrect the dead? And indeed the recompense is to occur by the heaven containing pathways. Indeed, you are in differing speech, meaning people have different opinions about the Day of Judgment, diluted away from the Quran is He who is diluted, destroyed are the faults of fires, meaning those who are just guessing, who are within a flood of confusion and he bless, they don't come out of their ignorance towards knowledge. They like to stay in their ignorance, they ask when is the Day of Recompense, they should actually be asking about

02:25:41--> 02:26:25

what they need to do for it, not when it is going to be, it is the day they will be tormented over the fire, and will be told taste your torment. This is that for which you were impatient. Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs, accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that Dewar's of good This is beautiful Athena ma Tao, hombre boom. You see, the believer happily takes the command of his Lord in this life, and in the Hereafter, he will happily take the rewards that his Lord will give him. Allah Majora lemon home. So let us be pleased and content with what Allah has commanded. And with what Allah has decreed for us, be pleased with

02:26:25--> 02:27:07

Allah. And Allah will give you Jenna, they used to sleep but little of the night, not to chit chat or to watch movies. But they used to sleep a little in the night in order to worship Allah, meaning at a time when the body desires comfort and rest, they exerted effort in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And of course, this means that they're sleep deprived, because no matter how much you nap in the day, first of all, your you know, nap in the day is not guaranteed. You think that you might be able to nap during the day, but you're not always able to write. And then even if you get to nap in the day, it's not the same as sleeping in the night. So this leap a little in the night. Why? So

02:27:07--> 02:27:43

that they can get up then and worship Allah subhanaw taala. So remember, in general, we were supposed to sleep in the night and then also pray in the night. Not that we stay up all night long. But in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the prophets of Allah who Ernie cinemas way was slightly different. I shall dilla Mourinho said that with the start of the last 10 days of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to tighten his waist belt, and used to pray all the all night long a healer Laila. And he also used to keep his family awake for the prayers. So this is a summit that we need to observe also, with Bill as Harry whom he has selfie rune. And then the hours

02:27:43--> 02:27:51

before dawn, they would ask forgiveness because at this time Allah invites people Is there anyone who will seek forgiveness from me so that I will forgive him

02:27:52--> 02:28:33

and from their properties was given the right of the needy petitioner and the deprived? Again, this is a reminder we must spend in the way of a law and on the earth are Signs for the certain in faith and in yourselves, then will you not see, and in the heaven, the sky is your provision, and whatever you were promised, meaning whatever is written for you, meaning whatever you are going to receive a provision is written in below Homer fold, you're not gonna get more or less than that, that is guaranteed, then by the Lord of the heaven and earth. Indeed, it is truth, just as short as it is that you are speaking has their reach to you the story of the honored guests of Ibrahim, when they

02:28:33--> 02:29:11

entered upon him and said, We greet you with peace, he answered and upon ups, you are people unknown, even though he didn't recognize them he said Salaam. So remember, we should also say Salaam to all Muslims, whether we know them or we don't know them. Then he went to his family and came with the fat, fleshy, roasted caught calf, meaning he quietly went without making a scene and brought whatever that he could. And this is an important etiquette of serving the guests and placed it near them. He said, Will you not eat and he felt from them apprehension, they said Fear not, and gave him good tidings of a learned boy and his wife approached him with a cry of alarm and struck her face

02:29:11--> 02:29:40

and said I have a barren old woman what you're talking about, how am I gonna have a child? They said thus has said your Lord, indeed he is the wise the knowing in the who who will hakimullah alim. So trust his decision, trust his decree, and trust his knowledge and rely upon him subhanak Allahumma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta stuffy to go to the lake wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

02:30:11--> 02:30:14

I'm about to take on an industry that is

02:30:15--> 02:30:19

a disruption for the assembly and the receiver for the manufacturing.

02:30:34--> 02:30:36

I was a bit lacking in the shade on your resume. Is it okay? No?

02:30:39--> 02:30:41

Yes. Okay. apologize for that.

02:30:44--> 02:30:47

Okay, so Subhanallah some very

02:30:51--> 02:31:01

interesting is that we went over and Pinilla these things we already know, but we forget it. So let's inshallah go over some of them.

02:31:09--> 02:31:12

Okay, so I just number 26

02:31:14--> 02:31:24

soja, we're going to look at a couple of IOD from sootel gerat. Which you probably already guessed. Okay. So let's see

02:31:33--> 02:31:36

if she is not Muslim.

02:31:38--> 02:31:40

Okay, we're gonna have to check on that to visa

02:31:41--> 02:31:43

shuttler Okay, so

02:31:45--> 02:31:48

we're going to couple cover a couple of items shuttler

02:31:49--> 02:32:02

Well, you will have believed there comes to you a disobedient one with information investigate, lest you harm people out of ignorance and become over what you have got done regretful.

02:32:14--> 02:32:19

Okay, so we've been given specific instructions here. So if we are

02:32:21--> 02:32:38

believers, right, so if we are believers, then this idea is for us. So everyone here Alhamdulillah. We're a believer, right? So then what does that entail? What does that mean? If I'm a believer, then what do I have to do when I hear these ayat?

02:32:47--> 02:32:56

Yes, listen carefully and implement, ponder implement, yes, I must practice upon them. Okay, not just think about it.

02:33:00--> 02:33:03

Not just think about it, but to actually act upon it.

02:33:04--> 02:33:05

Right. So

02:33:06--> 02:33:25

what are we being told here? That if someone who's we know is a disbeliever, basically, who we know shares information all the time, right? Someone who is disobedient with information, so they just bring information gossip, and they spread it?

02:33:27--> 02:33:32

So we know someone spreads gossip, and they bring us some news?

02:33:34--> 02:33:39

So should we just immediately believe it? Because when I look, gossip is juicy.

02:33:41--> 02:33:56

No, right. So judge ourselves, right? How do I react to any news? How do I react? Do I immediately start to Subhanallah believe it and start in my mind thinking? Who can I tell?

02:33:58--> 02:34:07

Yes, we're being told in this ayah investigate? Right? So don't just believe, but Subhanallah verify this information.

02:34:10--> 02:34:17

Right. And we're being told the reason as well, why should we verify because Subhanallah it's possible we can harm someone?

02:34:18--> 02:34:21

Because of our ignorance?

02:34:23--> 02:34:32

Yes, exactly. Not everything needs to be forwarded right? And sometimes because of this, people's reputations are ruined.

02:34:34--> 02:34:44

Right? So what should we do? Have some suburb just stop? Right? Have some suburb and check. Is it true?

02:34:46--> 02:34:47

Is it true?

02:34:48--> 02:34:59

And then Alas, Python says that if we do not do these things, if we don't take these steps, then what will happen? It's possible that we might regret this. Were in this

02:35:00--> 02:35:04

world and in the hereafter. So what's the solution?

02:35:06--> 02:35:08

Have good company?

02:35:09--> 02:35:15

Don't have company that is going to always involve you in gossip.

02:35:19--> 02:35:22

Yes, social media is a huge place for this one.

02:35:24--> 02:35:26

So have some, some kind of

02:35:28--> 02:35:32

patience so that we can inshallah verify the news check if it's true and then

02:35:34--> 02:36:21

take appropriate action. Right? So yes, so this applies to Subhan. Allah when it's gossip about people, and even things that are sent to us, right? Sometimes people forward, for example, some coupon, right, the latest one that I think was Costco coupon for, like $150 off of something. Right? So if something is not believable, it's usually not true. Right? And that post was Subhanallah, just going around and around and everyone's just sending it to each other. And all you have to do some kind of like, is search type in your browser? Is Costco offering? $150? coupon? Okay, and it comes up immediately that no, this is a fake coupon.

02:36:22--> 02:36:35

Right. So, as far as whether it's about people, or about something that's going on in the world, and then a lot of things about the virus, for example, people just take any news, and just keep forwarding it.

02:36:36--> 02:36:57

Right, they don't verify so panela the latest thing was a video on Fox News. And then Subhanallah they had a picture of black seed oil. And the person on the video is not even talking about black seed oil, but everyone was just surprised. They kept forwarding that. Yeah, exactly. Use common sense.

02:37:00--> 02:37:08

Fastest finger syndrome. Yes. Who can supine? I get the news out before anyone else. Exactly. Read the whole text first.

02:37:10--> 02:37:19

Yeah, what a waste of time. Exactly. SubhanAllah. So there's a story about this woman who

02:37:20--> 02:37:28

she found out some gossip. And she shared it. Okay. And later, she came to know about

02:37:29--> 02:37:49

the news being untrue. Okay, so she went to a scholar and she said, I heard this gossip. I passed it around. I didn't know it wasn't true. And now I found out it was true. So how can I fix this? Okay, so he told her, collect chicken,

02:37:50--> 02:38:01

feathers, okay, go to a shop and just collect all of the feathers. Okay. And then on your way home? Just drop a few feathers along the way.

02:38:02--> 02:38:12

Okay. And then she said, Okay, so she did that. And then so she came back to him the next day. She said, Okay, what do I do now? He said, go collect those feathers.

02:38:14--> 02:38:17

So is it possible to collect the feathers?

02:38:19--> 02:38:43

No. height. So the same way once someone says something Subhanallah once they spread some rumor, it's impossible to collect it back. Yes, the damage has been done, and there's no way to fix it. So that's why last fall Salas says that you will regret right you'll regret grad in this dunya and in the hereafter.

02:38:45--> 02:39:34

Yes, once it's out it's done. Right. So May Allah protect us from spreading rumors. So it overdraft I number 11 Oh, you will have believed let nada people ridicule and other people perhaps they may be better than them. Nor let women ridicule another woman perhaps they may be better than them. And Do not insult one another and do not call each other by offensive nicknames. Ratchet is the name of discipline of disobedience after one's faith and whoever does not repent then it is those who are the wrong doors. Okay, so something that is very relevant to Subhanallah everyone's lives. Because people are somehow making fun of people in their own homes. And then of course, people who show up

02:39:34--> 02:39:45

on television and then people who are not in front of them if their families, their communities, some people Subhanallah even if they go to the mall, they just cannot stop making fun of people.

02:39:46--> 02:39:59

Right? So we're being told not to do a couple of things in this is a number one don't ridicule others. And what was the reason given a less fun is very clear why we should not be making fun of others.

02:40:01--> 02:40:09

Yeah, they might be better than us. Subhan Allah, maybe Allah spent Allah has already forgiven them and given them Jenna.

02:40:10--> 02:40:14

And maybe our names are among those in jahannam because we're making fun.

02:40:15--> 02:40:18

Yes, irresistible habit. SubhanAllah.

02:40:19--> 02:40:26

And then, secondly, don't insult others. Don't insult people.

02:40:28--> 02:40:33

And then don't call others with offensive nicknames.

02:40:34--> 02:40:48

People do this all the time, they pick a flaw, and Subhanallah that's what they use to call on the person. Yeah. And don't ruin your emotion. Because Subhanallah we know this is wrong.

02:40:49--> 02:40:54

Right? We know all of these things are wrong. But what happens? We forget.

02:40:55--> 02:40:58

Yeah, yes, women are dressed separately. So

02:41:01--> 02:41:03

we forget and then we've ruined our email.

02:41:05--> 02:41:08

So what should we do if we've already done this?

02:41:09--> 02:41:33

easy solution? repent. Remember, all the steps we talked about? repentance isn't just saying a stuff, federal law, and then the next day going back to it right? Make a firm resolve, I'm not going to go back to this, I'm not going to do this anymore, and change ourselves. Right? And who doesn't? Subhanallah only those who do those were the wrongdoers.

02:41:36--> 02:41:38

Right, so what is the reason behind?

02:41:39--> 02:41:46

All of this, ridiculing insulting mocking? Number one, some people have too much time.

02:41:47--> 02:42:07

Honestly, a lot of this wrongdoing is because of too much time, whether it was gossip, or all of the things that were just mentioned in this idea, right? It's because the minds are not occupied with things that are of value. Right? Secondly, arrogance.

02:42:08--> 02:42:50

Right, so sometimes, someone is praised in front of someone and they can't take it. Right? They want to be the center of attention all the time. And so what do they do? They either spread gossip about them, or they insult them in front of everyone or they make fun of them. Right? Somehow they have to put the other person down so that they feel better about themselves. Yes, idle mind, devil's workshop, or they have some kind of a complex phrase, they have some kind of a problem, where they Subhanallah are always doubting people, or they're always some kind of a finding fault in other people. So they have some kind of Yeah, it's their own insecurity, basically, this complex that they

02:42:50--> 02:43:06

have, right, or they're jealous, which is kind of similar to being arrogant, right? They can't stand it when someone else is getting attention, or when someone else is being praised for some reason or another. So this is why people make fun.

02:43:08--> 02:43:15

Yes, basically, sometimes true. We're older than the person so we make fun of the younger people because they can do anything to us.

02:43:17--> 02:43:24

And then don't insult others. So don't insult what number one their physical features. Has anyone created their own features.

02:43:26--> 02:43:36

If someone's nose is a certain way, or someone's skin color is a certain way, and also vanilla, right? So who are we actually making fun of? Right? We're actually mocking less Palmer Donna.

02:43:37--> 02:43:45

Because Allah Subhana Allah is the designer behind every single person's physic and physical attributes upon Allah.

02:43:46--> 02:44:03

So we are making fun of Allah Subhana Allah and then don't make fun of their character and their manners. This is also insulting, right? This these are the things people insult people with, whether it's the way they look, or their character, right or how they behave.

02:44:05--> 02:44:17

So we're being told Don't insult and then what do people say after they say something? They say I was just joking. You didn't take it seriously right? I was just kidding. Yeah.

02:44:18--> 02:44:21

That's true. They think they're smart but they actually dumb someone on

02:44:24--> 02:44:29

Exactly, yes, we're one body so it's personal. Yeah. So marking ourselves

02:44:31--> 02:44:38

and then the next sale or you will have believed avoid much negative assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin.

02:44:39--> 02:44:50

And do not spy or backbiting each other would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it and fear Allah indeed allies Accepting of repentance and merciful

02:44:51--> 02:44:59

Yes, true. Some people act innocent after hurting so many supine Allah. So assumptions we can have assumptions about many different things.

02:45:00--> 02:45:04

Negative assumptions. People have negative assumptions about Allah subhanaw taala.

02:45:06--> 02:45:16

Less than $1 It's a lot of models fault for this or for that, right? Or why Why me? About the prophets? Allah is Allah, they haven't read any.

02:45:17--> 02:45:32

The Sierra, they haven't studied that I've heard this properly, but then they mock the prophets I send them about his marriages or Subhanallah the wars, right? Different things they find, and they assume that they know why it was done. Right. Instead of finding out

02:45:35--> 02:45:49

and then about the deen they haven't studied the deen. Right. So they assume they know why certain commands are there. Or why people are practicing upon it and Subhanallah they assume? And then of course, about people.

02:45:51--> 02:45:52

About people.

02:45:53--> 02:46:15

Okay, and so Why, yes, lack of knowledge Subhanallah lack of knowledge. Because even a non Muslim who studied Islam properly, will testify that the process was a great human being. He accomplished something that no one could have accomplished. Right? Are the Quran is an amazing book.

02:46:17--> 02:46:23

But they don't believe that's a different story. But even they have to testify to this right. So it's not even just

02:46:24--> 02:46:37

about not having been, but it's about not having knowledge. So again, reasons for assumptions or negative thinking. Some people see only the negative and everything.

02:46:38--> 02:46:46

Yes, they think they know better than others. Yes. Always having negative thinking. Or, again, jealousy,

02:46:47--> 02:46:48

or perhaps hatred.

02:46:49--> 02:47:06

The best one free time, and then misunderstandings. Right, so not clearing up a misunderstanding, right? So if someone says something, and you're not sure what they said, Ask them. Don't just assume that you know, because then it falls into negative thinking.

02:47:08--> 02:47:12

That because of that, we can have some kind of a hatred for people for no reason.

02:47:13--> 02:47:18

Right? And then because of that, it turns into jealousy. And all of this began because we had too much free time.

02:47:22--> 02:47:25

So some kind of lead. This is

02:47:26--> 02:47:36

a big waste of time. Right? So we have a misunderstanding cleared up. And then why do people spy again, Subhanallah too much free time.

02:47:37--> 02:47:48

Right? And then they have negative assumptions that they're probably talking about me. They're probably planning something against me, they're probably plotting against me. Right? So I need to go and see

02:47:49--> 02:47:50

what's going on.

02:47:51--> 02:47:54

Right, and they have a habit of finding faults.

02:47:57--> 02:48:04

Right. So you know, what time does is when we read all of these characteristics, we think of other people.

02:48:05--> 02:48:10

Right, but what do we need to do? We need to check ourselves.

02:48:12--> 02:48:14

Do I do this?

02:48:15--> 02:48:23

Yes, exactly. Because there's always someone or another who has this type of some kind of habit going on.

02:48:24--> 02:48:30

Yeah, reflect on ourselves. Yeah, some people are habitually curious. Yes. So panela. So that's a test for them.

02:48:34--> 02:48:42

Yeah, and the order and the is SubhanAllah. Negative assumption spying backbiting? Yeah. So where does it start with negative assumptions? planula

02:48:43--> 02:48:52

then we spy on people and then Subhanallah we have something to back fight about. Yeah, so satisfying their ego.

02:48:54--> 02:48:58

Right, remind those under our responsibility as

02:48:59--> 02:49:00

as well.

02:49:02--> 02:49:12

That's true. Good point. We should keep in mind if walls have ears and angels have pens upon Allah. And so how do people spy either using their eyes?

02:49:13--> 02:49:19

Right, there's a crack in the door. Two people are talking spy, or Subhanallah

02:49:22--> 02:49:27

their ears? Right? They're listening in on something what they shouldn't be.

02:49:30--> 02:49:47

And then technology, right? So with technologies behind Allah, we know all these cameras and recently I found out that if you can leave your phone somewhere, and you can basically the person sitting there has no idea but you can listen on on your Bluetooth device.

02:49:50--> 02:49:54

And they wouldn't even know they'll just think you forgot your phone there.

02:49:57--> 02:49:59

Okay, this is the email address.

02:50:01--> 02:50:08

Yes, it's very common to Pinilla assumption. Exactly. We have to remember that we have to give his very true.

02:50:10--> 02:50:13

Okay, so then we were told, backbiting

02:50:15--> 02:50:38

true. There's a permanent camera inside of Subhanallah backbiting is mentioning something about your brother that he dislikes or sister, right? So something that they wouldn't like. backbiting is to mention about a person something about him in his absence. Okay, so they're not there. So we're going to talk about them. Right? And people do this a lot. What happens after our wedding?

02:50:39--> 02:50:58

People are exhausted, but what do they do? They sit together, they just backbite this person was wearing this this person did this. This person said this Subhanallah they're exhausted. They can't even get up and go change your clothes. But they will just talk and talk all night.

02:51:01--> 02:51:33

What's the difference between backbiting and slander? Okay, so there's these fan so he Muslim, do you know what is liba backbiting they said a line is messenger sallallahu Sallam know best. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, mentioning about your brother what he would hate in his absence. It was said what about? What about if what I say about my brother is true. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if what you said about him is true, then you would have backed by did him. And if it is not true, then he is slandered.

02:51:34--> 02:51:44

So either way, what was the punishment for slander? Of course, it was against a chaste woman insert the nor does anyone remember?

02:51:48--> 02:51:51

Yeah. 80 lashes upon Allah.

02:51:53--> 02:51:59

Right. So imagine, if someone is just saying something's not true.

02:52:01--> 02:52:09

So that's 80 lashes in the dunya. And of course, this is not practiced upon every type of slander. But imagine what the punishment would be in the hereafter.

02:52:12--> 02:52:34

So it's not something light that we can just backbite or slander. Yes, major sin SubhanAllah. And then people say, I'm not backbiting. That's right. They say it's true. Okay, we know the headaches. It's true. That's fine. It's still backbiting. Or they say, I'm just saying, or I'm warning others about a person's mistake.

02:52:36--> 02:52:41

Yeah, I can say it on their face. Exactly. I'll tell them later, because I don't care. I can say it to their face.

02:52:42--> 02:52:53

Or everyone already knows this about this person anyway, it's tough for a lot. So these are just excuses. Right? And what is shaitan? Do? Remember how Shakedown works.

02:52:55--> 02:53:07

He makes you feel like you're invincible. Okay? When he gives you an idea that he pumps you up so much that you think this is the right thing to do. And I have to do this.

02:53:08--> 02:53:32

And then Subhanallah when all of the fighting and all the problems will start? He's not going to be there to take the fall for it. Yes, he beautifies you're wrong action. Exactly. He's not going to take credit for it. And he's definitely not going to take the punishment for you on the hereafter. Right? So my last month they'll protect us from all the things that were mentioned in these ayat and me

02:53:34--> 02:53:37

to make it better, yeah. So if if you

02:53:39--> 02:54:04

think it's going to make it worse, okay, if the situation is going to become worse, if you go confess, then don't confess in that situation, but make the offer them make sense offer them and keep seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. Right, and try to rectify the wrongs. So next time someone says something bad about them, you speak good, right? Because what do we have to do we have to replace the bad deed with the good deeds.

02:54:05--> 02:54:12

But if it's a situation where they know you know, everybody knows that there's backbiting going on, then go seek forgiveness from them.

02:54:13--> 02:54:16

And even if they don't forgive you, you've done your job.

02:54:18--> 02:54:25

Just make sure that we're sincere so that we can stand in front of a less parallel on day of judgment and say I asked for forgiveness.

02:54:28--> 02:54:36

Okay, inshallah. Okay, so, how many of you are not in Italian or Korean program and are motivated to join one
