Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:09--> 00:00:23

hamdulillah Ramadan Mubarak to you. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to spend this month with the Quran And may Allah soprano tada allow us to earn his forgiveness through this month in Sharla

00:00:24--> 00:00:45

are all the Billahi min ash shape line of La Jean Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish likely sodbury were silly emri why hirakata melissani saniya coho Collie along Maddie Colby was sad did listen he was slowed Salima Colby Emiliano Birla mean,

00:00:46--> 00:01:39

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever Allah wishes good for he gives them the understanding of religion. So this is a last panel Tara's huge mercy upon us, that he is giving us a chance to connect with his religion. It is his great mercy that He has given us the love for his religion. And its understanding 100 Allah, because loving the religion is something good, but loving it alone is not enough knowledge, knowing it, understanding it, that is essential, because the person who understands the deen then they're able to accumulate much good by which they benefit in this life, and they also benefit in the next life. And remember that learning sacred knowledge, the

00:01:39--> 00:02:28

knowledge of the Quran, this is also an act of worship, because Allah subhanaw taala commands us to learn farlam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam specifically told us that I will call and learn the Quran and reflecting upon the Quran is also in obedience to Allah command, because Allah says FMLA at the baronial Quran, meaning they should reflect on the Quran. So, and also remember that reviewing the Quran with someone meaning reading it together, this is a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he used to review the Quran with jabril every night of the month of Ramadan. Allah subhanaw taala tells us that yellow fair Allahu la Vina M and remain calm when

00:02:28--> 00:03:12

levina owed to her in mythology, that Allah will raise those who have believed among you, and those who are given knowledge by degrees, meaning with an increase in knowledge, and by that an increase in a man. This is something that increases a person in their rank near Allah subhanaw taala also, so we should not have any hesitation in spending time with the book of Allah in this month. If this time that we spend together where we reflect upon the Quran, we review it together. This helps us recite the Quran better, it encourages us and reminds us to worship our Lord, then this is an act of Riba.

00:03:14--> 00:03:59

We learned that Giovanni's daughter sukeena, she asked her father that isn't not that the scholars of Hades would put away their books of Hadith in the month of Ramadan and only focus on the recitation of the Quran, meaning they would only focus on their personal worship and they would not engage in learning and teaching and studying. Is this correct? she asked him that is this month only for the Quran? So shall I stop the study of books of Hadith etc. So he answered that this the fleece this specification has no basis in the Sunnah. What is known from the Sunnah is an increase in the recitation of the Quran in the month of Ramadan. It doesn't mean that we have to only recite the

00:03:59--> 00:04:50

Quran and do nothing else. No, we can also engage in seeking knowledge in learning in teaching in studying etc. But along with that, we should also increase in the recitation of the Quran. So feel no guilt, because sometimes people feel guilty that you know what I should be spending this time in the recitation of the Quran, not in things related to Darlene. It will tell you that Rahim Allah said that as for reflecting upon the Quran, then it is to fix the eyes of the heart upon the meanings of the Quran, and focusing all of one's thoughts on understanding and reflecting upon it. And this is the very objective the very purpose of the revelation of the Quran. Mere recitation

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

without understanding and reflection is not the objective. So if we are only reciting Our goal is to just complete five

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

recitations of the entire course or 10, or 15, or how or how many ever, that is good, but the recitation alone without any understanding without any reflection, that is not the objective of the revelation of the Quran. So Alhamdulillah we're getting the opportunity to learn the meanings, review the meetings, or reflect upon the meetings and insha Allah. This is something that will help us improve our recitation. In Sharla Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, Jews number five.

00:05:34--> 00:06:26

One more slinger domina Nisa, Illa. Malacca, Amer Newcomb, kita Bala here la con, what will hail Ella como la alikum and Tabitha, who will be unwelcome mostly Nene Raju la Mousavi hain. And also prohibited to you for marriage are all married women, except those your right hands possess, meaning those that follow us captive. This is the decree of Allah upon you. Meaning This is something that Allah subhanaw taala has decided and lawful to you are all other women beyond these, provided that you seek them in marriage with gifts from your property, meaning you must marry them properly, and give them their due mahalo. And when you marry them desire chastity, not unlawful sexual

00:06:26--> 00:07:14

intercourse, meaning don't just pay a woman in order to enjoy her sexually, nor have a temporary marriage simply to have relations with her. So for whatever you enjoy of marriage from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing and wise. So we see in this ayah, that the man is obligated to give the Mahalo to his wife. This is not something that is just to be mentioned in the marriage contract, or it is to be spoken off at the time of marriage. No, it is actually a financial obligation upon the men.

00:07:14--> 00:08:01

And until he gives it to his wife, he hands it over to her making it her complete possession, it is a debt on him. So at the time of Nika at the time of marriage, the man must give the woman her Mahal. However, if she willingly for goals, part of it or all of it, with her volition, not by compulsion, then that is something which is permissible. And this verse also shows us with a legal relationship between a man and a woman looks like you see Allah subhanaw taala has created human beings with different desires, there is the desire for food, the appetite of the stomach, and there is the desire for sexual pleasure. But just as there are boundaries that have been set, when it

00:08:01--> 00:08:53

comes to food and drink, there are also boundaries for sexual pleasure. This is what sets apart a person who has surrendered to Allah from the one who has not the person who has surrendered to Allah will not go on fulfilling their desire, whenever and however, and with whatever that they please, rather, they will remain within the bounds of what is permissible. And remember, the goal of these boundaries is not deprivation, but it is for our own benefit and protection, because in the law, how can I Lehman hekima Indeed Allah is Ever knowing ever wise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that all young men, those among you who can support a wife should marry for it restrains eyes,

00:08:53--> 00:09:42

and preserves one from immorality, but he who cannot afford it should observe fasting for it as a means of controlling the sexual desire. One millennia Stelter men component and whoever among you cannot find the means the means to what the means to marry free believing women, then what should he do? Then he may marry from those whom your right hands possess of believing slave girls, meaning set, meaning set her free, a slave woman, but then the condition is that she must be a believer, and then you can marry her. And Allah is most knowing about your faith will Allah who are alone will be Imani calm. You see, when it comes to the faith of people, we must deal with them based on their

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

external, their outward and Allah subhanaw taala knows the reality of the hearts of people. The fact is that we don't even know what our level of faith is at times. Then how can we speak confidently about the faith of someone else? The Prophet

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that I have not been ordered by Allah to search the hearts of the people or cut open their bellies, meaning I am supposed to deal with people based on their outward so when Allahu Allah will be Imani comb, Allah is most knowing about your faith. You see, sometimes we hear about a certain individual who embraced Islam. And then they married a, you know, a Muslim, and then people wonder that they embraced Islam for the sake of marriage. There Islam is not sincere, we should refrain from passing such judgment. Because Allah subhanaw taala is the one who knows why someone became Muslim. And if they are really Muslim or not, well, law who are allowed

00:10:46--> 00:11:33

will be a man equal, you believers are of one another, meaning all of you are children of Adam. You see in this ayah, the men are being allowed to marry a slave woman, right provided that she's a believer, and when it comes to marrying someone who is of a lower social status, then this is something that people are, you know, very concerned about that they hesitate. But this is a reminder, you believers are off one another, that the socioeconomic status of a person is not everything that defines them. There is more to a person than their lineage than their wealth than their physical appearance. So let us not be superficial when it comes to marriage. It is said so

00:11:33--> 00:12:20

marry them with the permission of their people, and give them their due compensation according to what is acceptable, meaning even to a slave woman, give her the money. Then what do you think about a free woman? Remember, what makes Nika different from Xena is the fact that Nika is public. And Xena is secret. So Nika should be marriage should be with the permission of the woman's family. This nigga should be known. They should be chaste. Neither of those who commit unlawful intercourse randomly, nor those who take secret lovers. But once they are sheltered in marriage, if they should commit adultery, then for them is half the punishment for free women. This is for him, among you,

00:12:20--> 00:12:27

who fears sin, but to be patient is better for you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:12:28--> 00:13:00

Here in this ayah, we see that slavery is mentioned. And when it comes to slavery, this is a complicated topic that, quite frankly, is very hard for many people to comprehend. The problem is that when we think of slavery, we think of the transatlantic slave trade. We think of ISIS, we think of movies such as our books such as 12 years of slave, and we can only imagine then that slavery is something evil. And the very mention of such things in the Koran makes us extremely uncomfortable.

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

Remember that slavery was something common at the time when the Quran was revealed, not just in Arabia, but everywhere, it was a global reality. And like everything else, guidelines regarding slavery were given that would eventually lead to its abolition. And if not, that, then if slavery does exist, ever in a place or time, then Islam is clear about the rights of the slaves, how should how they should be treated, how they should be viewed, and so on and so forth. And I want you to try and look, look beyond look past the biases that we have developed and appreciate this ayah that how a Muslim men is being encouraged to marry a slave woman, to set her free to give her mother to seek

00:13:47--> 00:14:25

permission from her family, and then marry her. Does this not tell us about the status of those in slavery in Islam? And this verse, unfortunately, many people use to show that you know it that in Islam, it is allowed to rape, female war captives and slave women. Remember that slavery in Islam is not legalized rape, as some people like to claim. Consider the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said, Whoever strikes his slave sharply or slaps him, then the expiation for the sin is to set the slave free.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

If beating is not allowed, if hitting is not allowed, then what do you think about sexual violence? Would there be any room for that? We learned that Michelle fairy he said that as for sexual intercourse, its purpose is pleasure, and no one may be forced into it, meaning coercion goes against the very nature of this act. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he urged the fair and kind treatment of the week, he said is Stoessel Bill busara halen that

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

I enjoin you to treat prisoners well beyond me sat in Highland. I enjoin you to treat women well also. And in his final illness, he urged his oma to pay special regard to two matters. A sweat out when I'm elected a man who can pay attention to your Salah and also pay attention, meaning fear Allah, regarding the slaves, you read the law who you obey, Hina comb, Allah wants to make clear to you, meaning all of these matters are laid out clearly over here, so that you know what is lawful and what is unlawful. And he intends to guide you to the good practices of those before you and to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and wise, will law who you lead to a toolbar Aleykum

00:15:48--> 00:16:34

and Allah wants to accept your repentance. But those who follow their passions, want you to digress into a great deviation. You read the law who and you have foreign comb, and Allah wants to lighten for you, meaning your difficulties, your burdens, Allah subhanaw taala intends to create ease for you Why? Well, holy cow insano sharifah and mankind was created weak. So we see that the commands that are given in the sutra and in the Quran, the allowances that are given there actually for our ease. And we see that all of these commands, and all of these restrictions and prohibitions and allowances. They are realistic, they are practical laws, which ensure justice for all people. And

00:16:34--> 00:17:20

apparently, when we study Islamic law, especially that which is related to marriage, we may feel that there's so many restrictions, there's too many rules. But if you think about it, yes, restrictions do make us uncomfortable. But restrictions are also healthy boundaries are actually necessary. Because too much freedom can actually create difficulty for people think about it, why do we have traffic lights? Why do we have lane markings? Why do we have speed limits, because too much freedom on the road can be devastating. So just like that, when Allah subhanaw taala has given us these boundaries, these laws, this is not to deprive us, this is not to put us in hardship. This is

00:17:20--> 00:18:12

actually to create ease for us. Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu. All you who have believed, do not consume one another's wealth unjustly. Meaning do not adopt illegal ways of acquiring wealth, whether it is theft, or burglary, or interest or bribe or fraud or any other way, but only in lawful business by mutual consent. When at the Cthulhu, enforcer calm and do not kill yourselves, or this also means do not kill one another. Because killing another Muslim is like killing oneself. Because the Muslims life is sacred. We are supposed to be one body, and the punishment for manslaughter is death. So not a Cthulhu and full circle, and literally, do not kill yourselves. And this tells us

00:18:12--> 00:18:58

very clearly that suicide is how long it is not something permissible. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful in the law, how can I become rahima This is why Allah subhanaw taala has set these boundaries for us. You see, sometimes what happens is that a person feels exasperated by their circumstances, and they think that it is better to just end their life. Remember, the only thing that is certain in your life is actually your death. Sooner or later, you are going to die. You're not going to live in this world forever. But because Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has given you life. He is the one who has the right to take it away. This is not a choice that we make

00:18:58--> 00:19:44

ourselves. This is the choice that is with the owner. This decision belongs to the owner alone, and the desire to die if you think about it, it comes from a place of despair. And it is important to remember in these moments that inilah cannot be called rahima. That Yes, life is tough. It can feel unbearably difficult. But Allah does not like you to harm yourself. He has compassion towards you. So you should also have compassion towards yourself, you are worthy. When many of our values are the one and will Luma and whoever does that in aggression and injustice, then we will drive him into a fire and that for Allah is always easy.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

In digitali bukoba illa Martin honan if you avoid the major sins, which you are forbidden, we will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance. Meaning we will admit you then into Jenna

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

It is necessary that we avoid major sins. And remember a major sin in our best will dilla horn on who explained is a sin for which is threat of hell, or the curse of Allah, or his wrath. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly informed us what major sins are. He said, shall I tell you, which is the worst of major wrong actions? And the companion said, Yes, O Messenger of Allah. And he replied, associating partners with Allah, and disobeying parents supposed to look after disobeying parents, and then he was reclining at the time, but he sat up. And after sitting up, he said, and false witness, meaning giving false testimony, this is also a major sin. And another

00:20:50--> 00:21:36

Hadees, we learned, he said, avoid the seven great destructive sins. So the people asked what are they? And he said, to join others and worship along with Allah, to practice magic to kill the life which Allah has forbidden to eat Riba to eat up and orphans wealth, to give back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting, and to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching their chastity. And they're good believers, meaning accusing them of Zina and things like that. So we've seen this ayah that if a person avoids major sins, then their minor sins will also be erased, and their good deeds will erase their sins. There's a condition and the

00:21:36--> 00:22:23

condition is that the major sins should be avoided. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the five daily prayers and one tomorrow to the next one Friday prayer to the next Friday prayer, and one Ramadan to the next Ramadan. All of these deeds are explanations for the sins committed in between either tenable Kabbalah is provided that a person avoids the major sins. So it is necessary that we avoid major sins if we want the forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once ascended the member, and he said of shield shield. He said, I swear I swear No, I swear oxymoron of shield of Shirou good news, good news. Whoever performs the

00:22:23--> 00:23:11

five daily prayers and avoid major sins will enter Jannah from whichever gate that he wants to pound the law. Avoiding major sins is a means of forgiveness. And when a person avoids major sins, then La ilaha illAllah helps them and then their good deeds help them. One after the Multnomah fabella law will be bartlow comala bb, and do not wish for that by which Allah has made some of you exceed others. The fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has created a difference between people, meaning some people have been given what appears to be more and better than what others have been given. But this doesn't mean that some have been given nothing, no alasa panel data has given each creature

00:23:11--> 00:23:59

something so each person has certain strengths and certain deficiencies. Now, the problem is that when you compare yourself to others, yes, you do realize that they have what you don't have, and that you have what they don't have. But this constant comparison is actually very unhealthy. Why? Because it leads to a superiority complex, where a person begins to feel that you know what I am better than others because I have this and they don't have it. Or it leads to an inferiority complex where a person feels that they're inferior compared to others because they don't have what others have. So what we need is as what some call it interiority, which is to live without comparison. It

00:23:59--> 00:24:46

is to be yourself and to not worry constantly about comparing yourself to others. Because when we are constantly comparing ourselves to others, we fail to see what Allah has given us. And we feel jealous over what others have. And unless the panel tarla prohibits us from this one at a man No, my football Allahu be Baldock Humala, BB, Lily Jelena Cebu mimic Tessa boo well in Nisa, in a Siebel mimic test seven for men is a share of what they have earned and for women is a share of what they have earned. This is what matters what you earn. So even though a lot of panel data has created people different and given people you know different rights, different privileges, there is still

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

equal opportunity for all how how is there equal opportunity for all that the door of equity sab of earning of doing this is open to all meaning you can do

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Something good where you are, and as you are, and Allah subhanaw taala has granted real freedom to people, which is spiritual freedom, not physical. And each and every person can accomplish any a lot, just by embracing who they are. By using by harnessing the the unique abilities and strengths that are lost count Allah has given them the paths that Allah subhanaw taala has opened for them. So instead of viewing our limitations as obstacles, we need to view them as avenues. We need to understand that at times, the obstacle is the way you know, sometimes we think that because I'm a woman, I cannot do this or that, because I'm young, because I'm old, because it's cold because it's

00:25:46--> 00:26:35

hot because it's Ramadan, because I'm fasting because I'm not fasting, any we make our condition, our situation and excuse whereas, our condition, the situation that I lost pounds on it puts us in the the rights or the obligations that he has imposed upon us, or the the opportunities that he has taken away from us. Any whatever situation we are in, is actually in not a deprivation, it is an opportunity. And remember that as a Muslim, every single person has a fair chance to succeed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when they're able to do either Dakota, who was a thermowell Leah who follow who agilon that if a slave fears Allah and obeys his master, then he too

00:26:35--> 00:27:24

will get a double reward. Imagine a slave. What kind of freedom does a slave enjoy? Not much. But if a slave is beautiful to Allah, and is obedient to his master, meaning the human one, then allows parents I will give them double reward. Imagine such a person will be in Jenna, they were a slave in the world, but they will be in Jenna, in the hereafter. So remember, for a believer, every situation is actually an opportunity. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, amazing is the case of the believer. Why? Because if he's in difficulty, he is patient and that patient is good for him. If he is with blessing, he is grateful and that gratitude is good for him. So our success

00:27:24--> 00:28:17

is not in becoming an identical imitation of another person. know our success is not becoming is not in becoming someone else. Our success isn't being pleased with Allah subhanaw taala is decree for us in focusing on what we can do, because that is what we will be asked about. We will not be asked about what we could not do. We will be asked about the things that we were able to do and we still did not do them was alula Herman fugly? And ask Allah of his bounty in the lobby coalition in Lima. Indeed, Allah is Ever of all things knowing. So instead of envy what others have been given, ask Allah for his favor, you see, at least was envious and look at where his envy took him. So instead

00:28:17--> 00:29:00

of being upset with the, you know, with the framework of legal rights and responsibilities that our last panel tada has given us, we need to accept these realities and focus on action. Focus on what we are supposed to do, and what we can do. And when you send some kind of shortage, then call upon Allah subhanaw taala, who is the source of all blessings, your dollars will take you somewhere, but your jealousy won't. We learned that a man once came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a guest, and he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent someone to his family to bring food, but there was no food at his house. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made Dora Allahumma in me

00:29:00--> 00:29:43

a Steadicam in fugly Kawasaki Matic for inner hula yummly cuchara illa enter that Oh Allah, I asked you have your favorite and your mercy, for none owns it except you. And he had made this da and very soon, a gift of some cooked meat was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he wanted food he made Dora and food was brought to him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at that, that this is Allah's favor, and we await his mercy. So when you want something, when you feel that something is missing you you are in need of it. Then call upon Allah subhanaw taala ask Him for His favor.

00:29:44--> 00:30:00

And for all people, we have made heirs to what is left by parents and relatives, and to those whom you're old, have bound to you give them their share. Indeed, Allah is Ever over all things a witness. So we see that when it comes

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

To inheritance for example, Allah subhanaw taala has appointed the shares and when it comes to these shares, they're not all equal there are certain relatives who get you know who whose share is greater compared to the share of others. So, when you see these differences on the surface it seems like all this is unfair, but this is Allah soprano todos decision and instead of wishing for what others have been given, we should focus on what we have been given and we should focus on at sab on doing something because remember that the door of action is open. Indeed a lie is ever all things a witness that it is said a regional como una Allah Nisa, men have a Wham over women, men are in

00:30:45--> 00:30:53

charge of women. Why be my football Allahu Birla, whom Allah Barack Obama and finkelman unworthy him.

00:30:54--> 00:31:41

Men have been described as a well over women who is a column for wellness a person who rises much, who stands up who gets up a lot again and again, very often. Why a woman eila is to get up. Why in order to take care of someone because you are responsible for them. You see, for example, when there's a little child, a new baby, then what happens, the new parents will stay up at night, constantly over and over again. They will go check on their new baby, they will nurse the baby then they will go change the baby and then they will go try to put the baby to sleep. Any poem I learned is someone who is constantly getting up again and again. Why? Because they have a responsibility on

00:31:41--> 00:32:29

their shoulders. They're not just there for their own pleasure and their own enjoyment pursuing their own. You know, joys in life know, they have a huge responsibility to take care of someone. So who is it that men are supposed to take care of qalamoun arland Nisa they're supposed to take care of women. They're in charge of them, meaning they must take on this responsibility. They're supposed to take care of them as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What would you do law in our that debate he a man is a shepherd over the people of his household. How it means that men cannot abandon their wives or neglect them neglect their needs, it means that they must spend on them, they

00:32:29--> 00:33:14

must not demand money from them. It means that they must look after them, not abuse them or leave them to fend for themselves. It means that they should ensure the safety the well being of the women who are related to them, they should help them they should do their work, they should fulfill their needs. at regional qalamoun arland Nisa, why is it that Allah subhanaw taala has has made men alone, the reason is given by right of what Allah has given one over the other, and because of what they spend from their wealth. So firstly, because Allah has given men preference over women in certain ways, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has given them that by which they can actually take care of

00:33:14--> 00:33:35

women. So the men must use what they have, what Allah subhanaw taala has given them, to uplift women, to take care of them, not to bring them down, not to abuse them. And what is it that men have been given more of this varies from time to time and place to place in person to person. And he at times it is such that

00:33:37--> 00:34:22

men have greater physical strength, right? They have better job opportunities, they have certain social privileges that women don't always enjoy. So it is not fair that a woman should have to fend for herself. No men are a worm over women. And secondly, the reason why Allah spawn tada has made them cold lamb is because the men are required to spend on women. And this begins from the time of marriage, where the man has to give him a hug. So the person who spends also has a greater status, they have greater right. And this is something that Allah subhana wa tada has clearly mentioned in his book, and this is an undeniable reality. So if this is what men are supposed to bring to the

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

relationship, what about the women should they just be receiving and taking and giving nothing back? No, Allah subhanaw taala says asylee How to corny Tat, so righteous women are devoutly obedient to who to Allah and also to their husbands, because it is only with cooperation and agreeableness that our relationship can thrive. If there's constant resistance and rejection or neglect on either party, then that relationship cannot survive and have a lot too little hype. Such women are guarding in the husband's absence, what Allah would have them guard meaning

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

These women guard in obedience to Allah, what is hidden from their husbands and this includes their own chastity. So this means they do not cheat on their husbands. And this also includes the wealth of the husband, the house, the property, whatever it is, and also the private matters of the household, the secrets or you know, the information that is confidential or righteous woman keeps that within the family. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the world is but a quick passing enjoyment. And the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman. Because you see, a righteous woman is not only good toward her husband, he is truly fortunate, just by having

00:35:41--> 00:36:26

her company and also by having her as his life partner. Why, because the things that she will do, will also benefit her husband. We learned a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when a woman gives some of the food in her house, which is not spoiled, meaning and charity, then she gets a reward for what she gives. And her husband also gets a reward for what he earned. Even though he doesn't know about the food that was just given us charity, he didn't give that food as a charity, but he trusted his wife, he gave her money, right, he gave her the food, so that she can do whatever she wants with it. And now, when she makes such decisions, then he will benefit as well.

00:36:26--> 00:36:35

Why because the money is his and he trusted his wife, he enabled her he, he empowered her to make such good choices.

00:36:36--> 00:37:19

Then almost puntata mentions but those wives from whom you fear new shoes, and remember new shoes, this is not just any disobedience or you know someone having a different opinion, a woman voicing your opinions are just existing, no new shoes is arrogance. This is ill conduct and according to some This is infidelity. So those wise from whom you fear, infidelity, first advise them, then if they persist them, forsake them in bed, meaning express your disapproval, by distance, by distancing yourself, and finally strike them, meaning in order to discipline them, this is to shock not to hurt, but if they obey you once more, seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is Ever exalted and

00:37:19--> 00:38:07

grand, remember, in the law cannot I Li yen could be wrong. This means that any a husband should not get upset and annoyed and irritated over little things. And he don't start hurling abuses at your wife over petty issues, and don't hurt her for no real reason. Even if a man believes that he is 100%, right, because some men you know, in their head, they just believe that men are always right, and women are always wrong. Even if a man is like that. Any he is extremely, you know, misogynistic, sexist, etc. Even if he believes that his wife is in the wrong, still it does not allow him to become abusive. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He who believes in Allah and

00:38:07--> 00:38:49

the hereafter, if he witnesses any matter, then he should talk in good terms about it or keep quiet. Meaning if you see something, and you have something to say you want to say something, make sure it is good. If it is not good, then remain silent. You don't have to comment over everything. You don't have to give your you know, comments over everything that you witness. And he said act kindly towards women, act kindly towards them. And he gave a reason for a woman is created from a rib and the most crooked part of the rib is its top. So if you attempt to straighten it, you will break it. And if you leave it, it's crookedness will remain there. So act kindly towards women. What is this

00:38:49--> 00:39:35

heavy it's telling us that there are some things that you will never see eye to eye on. There are times when a man will completely disagree with his wife, or for example, he will believe that he is right and his wife is wrong. Okay, we accept that you are right, she is wrong. But that doesn't mean that you start abusing her. That doesn't mean that you become you know, you start showing your anger towards her all the time. No, you must restrain your anger and restrain your temper. restrain your ego because if you harm someone unjustly, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said love but on one out the wrong woman blah, blah, blah, blah blah Lahu be here. Woman sha sha Allah Who are

00:39:35--> 00:40:00

they he do not cause harm or return harm. Whoever harms others, Allah will harm him. Whoever is harsh with others, Allah will be harsh with him. So notice how this ayah ends in the Lucha kana I Li yen Kabira. Indeed, Allah is Exalted. He is high. He's cubby. He is grand. We learned that Obama Cyril de la Mora who reported that he

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

was once beating a slave of his. And while he was beating his slave, he heard someone from behind him saying it about Massoud Lola, who up Widodo la come in Kerala. He know abou Massoud that Allah has more power over you, then you have over him.

00:40:19--> 00:40:59

So almost rude he turned around and he saw that it was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, I have freed my slave for the sake of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you had not done so, you would have been burned in the fire of hell. Think about it. If this is with respect to the treatment of slaves, then what do you think about the treatment of one's own wife? We learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a believing man should not hate a believing woman, meaning you should not hate his wife. And some men, some men based on these verses, any day literally develop a hate for women, a contempt for women, they

00:40:59--> 00:41:40

consider their wives to be any non human. And when you think of a person like this, that they're that they're not human, their emotions, their feelings, their desires, you know, their needs, they don't matter, then you start abusing them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a believing men should not hate a believing woman, if he dislikes one of her characteristics, and it's quite possible that something about her really annoys you. Maybe it's the way she talks. Maybe it's the way that she voices her opinions. Maybe it's the fact that she, he does not cook great food, right? Whatever it is that you don't like about her. Still, there is something that you still like about

00:41:40--> 00:42:23

her. So focus on what you like, not, not on what you dislike. And the fact is that there is no human being that will always be 100%, according to how you want them to be. Then it is said, and if you fear dissension between the two, meaning the marriage is just not working out, then send an arbitrator from his people, and an arbitrator from her people. If they both desire reconciliation, Allah will cause it between them. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing and acquainted with all things. So we see that the only thing that can allow a marriage to survive is the willingness to make it work on the side of both individuals, meaning both the man and the woman must have that willingness to

00:42:23--> 00:43:07

make their marriage work. So once you believe that your spouse is worth living with, then give your relationship the best that you can offer. And this is shows us that sometimes to help figure out the differences to come to better understanding any intervention is needed. So in situations like this, do not hesitate going for marriage counseling, Wildwood aloha Welcome to Shri Coby Shea. And it is said worship Allah and associate nothing with him and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler and those whom your right hands possess. So the people who are around you, whether they're around

00:43:07--> 00:43:50

you physically or virtually, be considerate of them, whether you are working with them, or sharing a space with them, traveling with them, living with them sitting next to them, respect them, Be courteous, do your sand towards them. Why Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self deluding and boastful, meaning the people who are lost in their own greatness only who only know about their own rights, their own privileges, and they don't care about others. And if they have something that others don't have, then they become arrogant and boastful. They begin to belittle others. Allah subhanaw taala does not like such people. So avoid such a hook. Whether this is at home or outside

00:43:50--> 00:44:35

or even went online, and let the neighborhood alone those who are stingy and enjoin upon other people stinginess, and conceal what Allah has given them of his bounty, and we have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment. Why do they hide the blessings of Allah so that no one asks for them? Because they don't want to share? So remember, it's okay to have your own personal stash of, you know, chocolate or things like that. But it is wrong to hide it with the intention to not share with others. Because remember, stinginess is something that is one of the worst traits that a human being can possess. stinginess prevents a person from spending on others from giving what is

00:44:35--> 00:44:59

due, whether it is a cat, or or spending on guests, or on ones dependence, and stinginess, is a sign of being weak. Right? It shows that a person is emotionally weak, spiritually weak. This is what allows parents dimensions and the either Muscle, Muscle hydro minoura that when good touches him, he becomes very stingy and it's the worst human trait the Prophet sallallahu or his

00:45:00--> 00:45:47

lm said Chambal Murphy's Law Julian Sharon Hanley on with juvenile Holly own. The worst thing that can exist in a person is stinginess with cowardice. And the Prophet sallallahu. produsen warned us against it the poor should beware of short, and also those who spend all their wealth to be seen by the people and believe not in Allah, nor in the last day, and he to whom shaitaan is a companion than evil is he as a companion? And what harm would come upon them if they believed in Allah and the Last Day, and spend out of what Allah provided for them, and Allah is Ever about them knowing? Indeed, Allah does not do injustice, even as much as an atom's wait. While if there is a good deed,

00:45:47--> 00:46:35

he multiplies it and gives from himself a good reward. This is a less favor. So how will it be when we bring from every nation a witness, and we bring you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam against them as a witness that day, those who disbelieved and disobeyed the messenger will wish they could be covered by the earth, and they will not conceal from Allah a single statement. This is a warning for those people who disobeyed the Prophet sallallahu wasallam who disregard his teachings saying things like oh, this is not in the Quran. Yeah, you Halina armano or you who have believed, do not approach prayer, while you are intoxicated, until you know what you are saying. Now, this was

00:46:35--> 00:47:20

revealed before the prohibition of wine. You see, one day a person led the people in prayer while he was intoxicated, and as he was reciting the Quran, and he made serious errors. So, this ayah was revealed, that do not pray while you are intoxicated. And this shows us that when we are overcome by sleep, for example, then we should stop the recitation of the Quran at that time or do something to wake up. Why, because then we will end up making grave errors. And in general also, we should know the meaning of what we are saying in Salah, we should know the meaning of what we are reciting, so that we can avoid errors. So do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated, until you know what

00:47:20--> 00:48:07

you were saying. Or in a state of Genova except those passing through until you have washed meaning your entire body. And if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and finding a water, then seek clean Earth meaning maintain them and wipe over your faces and your hands with it. Indeed, Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving. So, in this ayah diamo is mentioned which is done in the absence of or inability to use water. And remember the tmo is a substitute for Moodle and for hostel. So, wherever the time of prayer comes in, and a person is not able to make will do because there is no water or their condition is such

00:48:07--> 00:48:55

that they are not able to use water for example, they're sick, then what should a person do? They should make to move and pray. Meaning Do not leave Salah still pray. And remember that in Tamil we use Earth, right? We just have to pad our hands on the ground on clean ground. And you don't have to take handfuls of sand but simply pet on it and then wipe your faces and then your hands and remember that sand of mud is not something dirty. Okay? Unless there is clearly some filth on it in a narration it has been set the master who built up for in the herby combat era that touched the ground because it is good to you. Right? It is good to you. So 10 one is actually a special gift

00:48:55--> 00:49:15

that was given to this oma, the Prophet sallallahu where it is and I mentioned different things by which he was given preference over the previous prophets and nations. And one of the things he mentioned was with God literally under masjidul what the hulan that the entire Earth has been made a place of worship and a means of purification for me.

00:49:17--> 00:49:59

And EMTALA illa levena una Sabir min Al Kitab. Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Scripture? What do they do what is so astonishing about them? They purchase error, and wishing and they also wish you would lose the way And Allah is most knowing of your enemies. And sufficient is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper? How beautiful worker fabula you will lead young worker fabula Hina sila, you see sometimes we get very scared when we find out that certain people don't like us, or certain people are, you know, planning to harm us or they're talking bad about us or that they're spreading, you know, hate hateful things about us. You

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

Yes, this is scary, but we must learn to depend upon Allah subhanaw taala. Because if we depend on ourselves, we will get exhausted. We have to learn to depend upon Allah because Allah is sufficient as a Wali, as a friend as a helper and as an asleep. Among those who became Jews are those who distort words from their proper usages. And they say Sameer now are a signer. We hear and disobey and was smart Layla was smart here, but be not heard. And alar in a meeting, instead of saying Sameera, now what Aparna they do they play onwards? Right? And why and why do they do this? How do they do this? twisting their tongues? Why defaming the religion? And if they had said, instead,

00:50:46--> 00:51:18

Samir, now what Aparna we hear and obey, and they had said was smart one Luna, wait for us to understand, it would have been better for them, and more suitable. So remember, we always have the choice to use better language to use better words, we can always express ourselves in a respectful way. And the corruption of the tongue shows that there is a deeper problem. There is a problem in the heart, which needs to be fixed, but Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not except for a few.

00:51:19--> 00:52:01

All you who are given the Scripture, believe in what we have sent down, confirming that which is with you, before we obliterate faces, and turn them toward their backs, or curse them as we curse the Sabbath breakers, and ever is the decree of Allah accomplished. Meaning Do you not fear Allah, when you make fun of his book, when you reject his book, when you make fun of his messenger? Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills, and he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin. So remember, shake is a major sin, and it must be avoided at all costs, and untitled Elena Dena use

00:52:01--> 00:52:51

akuna and fusa home, Have you not seen those who claim themselves to be pure, rather, Allah purifies whom He wills and injustice is not done to them, even as much as a thread, what kind of a thread if a team a thread which is inside a date seed, so inshallah today as you break your fast, then when you open your date, any look at the the thread which is inside, it is so fine, that at them, and most of the time, it just gets stuck to the seed, that you don't even see it. so tiny, Allah subhanaw taala does not even do that much injustice to people. So we see in this ayah that we have been advised against believing ourselves to be perfect, believing ourselves to be innocent and being

00:52:51--> 00:53:35

pure. Any there's no need to brag. If a person is able to do something good, or they're able to avoid some sin, then they should not get diluted that you know what I'm such a good person. One of the scholars said that the person who never blames himself in life, meaning they always consider themselves to be good and right, and they never oppose themselves. He this person never opposes himself in any situation, and never does in his life, what his nuts, dislikes, then such a person is in deception, and the one who believes himself to be the best than such a person has ruined himself. So and I'm Tara, Ellen, Latina, user, Kona and fusa. Home, Have you not seen those who claim

00:53:35--> 00:54:19

themselves to be pure? The fact is that none of us are pure, none of us are perfect. None of us are innocent. We are all guilty of sin, and the good that we do, even that has so many deficiencies in it so many problems with it. But this does not mean that a person constantly puts themselves down. No, we must remain between fear and hope. Remember that a believer is hopeful of Allah's mercy, and also afraid with regards to their deeds. And this is something that all of us parents I mentioned in the Quran will larina you tuna, Otto aku wodgina those who gave what they give, meaning that they give the charity, but then at the same time, their hearts are fearful. They're afraid. Why are they

00:54:19--> 00:54:59

afraid? Because they know that they have to return to their Lord. They have to face the consequences of their deeds and they know how imperfect their deeds are. So such people Allah says Allah EQ Sadie, Rona Phil, hi, Rod, Sutton Such are the people who hasten to good deeds. They're the ones who rush in doing good deeds, they get ahead of others. Because when a person begins to believe that you know what, I'm good, I'm good as I am, I'm perfect. Then they stop working hard, but a person who remains between fear and hope then they keep striving. Look how they invent about Allah untruth and sufficient is that at and sufficient is that as a manifest error, Have you not seen

00:55:00--> 00:55:44

Those who are given a portion of the Scripture who believe in superstition and false objects of worship, and say about the disbelievers that these are better guidance than the believers as to the way you see the previous nations, they also pursued gypped gypped, the superstition, even though they had the book of Allah, and this is a mistake that many Muslims make even today, that even though we have the book of Allah, we turn towards superstitious things, superstitious objects, we resort to superstitious beliefs. Allah subhanaw taala says those are the ones who Allah has cursed, and he who Allah curses, never will you find for him a helper. So remember, magic and superstition,

00:55:44--> 00:56:27

these things don't actually solve any problems. They only aggravate the problems because they invite the curse of Allah, or have their share of Dominion than if that were so they would not give the people even as much as the spec on a date seed, meaning this is how stingy they are. Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of his bounty. But we had already given the family of Ibrahim the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom, and some among them believe in it, and some among them believed in it, and some among them were averse to it, and sufficient is hell as a blaze. So remember, those who reject the messenger don't actually harm the messenger, they harm

00:56:27--> 00:57:17

themselves. Indeed, those who disbelieve in our verses, we will drive them into a fire. Every time their skins are roasted through, we will replace them with other skins, so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is Ever Exalted in Might and Wise. Remember, the punishment of hell? Whether it is for an hour, or a day or a year, he is something terrible. So we must bring ourselves to leave all that which leads to hellfire. We must take those means that protect us from the fire of hell. And we must repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness. You see the nature of the punishment that is mentioned over here. Repeated punishment every time the skins are roasted through, they will

00:57:17--> 00:58:02

be replaced. Why? Because denial they're crying is denial, disbelief, and disbelief or denial is something that is repeated in different ways. They rejected Allah, then they rejected the messenger. Then they rejected his book, not just once, but in many ways. Over and over. We've seen the previous verses how their mockery is mentioned, their aversion is mentioned there turning other people away from Islam, as mentioned, they're twisting the words of ALLAH is mentioned. And this is why the punishment won't just be once, but it will be repeated, because remember, this rule alleges a woman jinsol Amel. The recompense is similar to the deed itself. But those who believe and do righteous

00:58:02--> 00:58:29

deeds, what a contrast, Allah says, We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide forever for them, they are in our purified spouses, and we will admit them to deepening shade sopran the love in the La Jolla Moodle calm and to adult amenity in a leha. Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due. Meaning when you have to give an Amana

00:58:30--> 00:59:17

a responsibility, then give it to the people who are worthy of it. People who are worthy of fulfilling it, carrying its responsibility, not those whom you like, or those whom you want to do a favor to. And if someone interests you, with an Amana, with their property, for example, or a responsibility, then you preserve it, you guard it, and then you hand it over when you're asked because Allah is telling us unto adullam on earth, and when you judge between people to judge with justice, and you don't favor someone, just because you like them, or because you owe it to them, no, be just and fair. Excellent is that which Allah instruct excellent is that which Allah instructs

00:59:17--> 00:59:59

you? Meaning this instruction that Allah has given us excellent, and this is what will lead to prosperity? Indeed, Allah is Ever hearing and seeing Yeah, uh, you Halina amanu aqui your La Hoya Oakley over soon, all you have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger, what will and remain calm and those in authority among you, meaning those who are appointed as leaders, whether this is in the family, or it is in an organization in any capacity, someone who is in a position of authority, then you must obey them. And if you disagree over anything, then refer to Allah and the messenger. Why because the final authority rests with them. So obedience to the leader

01:00:00--> 01:00:39

will only be in obedience to Allah and His Messenger, which means that if the leader is telling you to do something wrong, then you don't obey them, you will be aligned the messenger, you will voice your opinion you will disagree with them, you will challenge them and you will bring them to the book of Allah. If you should believe in Allah and the Last Day, that is the best way and best in result, or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you and what was revealed before you, they wish to refer legislation to fatherhood, while they were commanded to reject it, and shaitan wishes to lead them far astray. And

01:00:39--> 01:01:21

when it is set to them, come to what Allah has revealed. And to the messenger, you see the hypocrites turning away from you in a version, you see the hypocrites in Medina, when they did not want the judgment of the Quran, when they did not want the judgment of the Prophet sallallahu earlier send them And why is that? So? Because that judgment, that decision, that ruling did not suit them? What would they do? They would leave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and take their disputes to someone else to solve, even though they claim to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or they claim to believe in the Scripture, instead of taking the ruling that the

01:01:21--> 01:02:05

scripture gives, they would go to other people. Why? Because other people would give them what their hearts desired. of us. pantalla says bakkavor is either a Saba to musli button. So how will it be when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth. And then they come to you swearing By Allah, we intended nothing but good conduct and accommodation, we had a very good intention, our intention was pure. And here we learn another important lesson. And that is the fact that many times a person is troubled by difficulty, because of their own sense and because of disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so in times of hardship, because you see it

01:02:05--> 01:02:08

says either asaba Tomasi button, a disaster strikes them.

01:02:09--> 01:02:56

And there is a reason for that disaster. So, when a person is facing a hardship, then what should they do? They should repent to Allah, our best little de la Mourinho, he prayed, or Allah, no tribulation descends, except because of a sin, and it is not removed except by repentance. So if we are experiencing any hardship in our lives, then it is necessary that we make Toba to Allah, we repent to Allah, we seek forgiveness from Allah. And remember that the time of tribulation is not the time of entertainment. Because this is what some of us have done. We have busied ourselves inside our homes, just having fun, entertaining ourselves, watching one movie after the other,

01:02:56--> 01:03:46

watching one TV show after the other. So this is not time for entertainment. This is time to repent to Allah subhanaw taala those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts. So turn away from them, but admonish them and speak to them a far reaching word, woman Oh Salam ala sudhin lol utara be in Nila Neela. And we did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. So the fact is that a prophet is to be obeyed, not ignored, not disobeyed. And if when they run themselves, they had come to you, and asked forgiveness of Allah and the messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and merciful. But no, by

01:03:46--> 01:04:29

your Lord, they will not truly believe until they make you a prophet, a judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves, and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged, and submit in full, willing submission. This is a requirement of a man, that we don't just believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we accept everything that he taught, we accept the decisions that he made. And if we have decreed upon them, that kill yourselves or leave your homes, they would not have done it, except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them and a firmer position. So you see, the first

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

thing we learned in this ayah is that whatever that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do, is not impossible. So we should not dislike it, we should not be averse to it because Allah has not commanded us that we kill ourselves. He hasn't he has not commanded us that we leave everything. Know the commands that Allah Allah has given us are very realistic, very practical. We are able to follow them. And then we learned in this ayah Willow unknown Farah Luma. You are gonna be if they had done what

01:05:00--> 01:05:44

They were instructed to do, then that would have been better for them, and it would have made them firmer, which shows us that when a person acts by their knowledge, then Allah subhanaw taala increases them in their knowledge also, Allah subhanaw taala teaches them what they previously did not know. And by that almost final title also gives them firmness and stability in good things. And then we would have given them from us a great reward and we would have guided them to a straight path. So remember, using what Allah has given you of knowledge is a way of showing gratitude and gratitude yields increase, and if a person does not act on their knowledge, then that knowledge is

01:05:44--> 01:06:30

lost, then a person loses it. In fact, that knowledge becomes detrimental. So Fianna Binet Raina said, If knowledge does not benefit you, it will actually harm you will monitor Illa however soon, and whoever obeys Allah and the messenger, whoever puts that knowledge into action fula eco Mara Latina anomala, who are they him? Those will be with the ones whom Allah has bestowed favor upon. And who are they? They are the prophets, the steadfast farmers of truth, this would be a pain that you had that the martyrs and the sila hate, the righteous and excellent are those as companions. What a What a great company this will be what an excellent companionship this will be. But this is

01:06:30--> 01:06:43

for who those who obey Allah and the messenger Allah who majority of them at home, then he can fog Lumina law, that is the bounty from Allah Waka fabula, here are Lima and sufficient is Allah as nor

01:06:45--> 01:07:34

Yeah, are you Hi levena Manu, all you who have believed, who do headlock home, take your precaution and either go forth in companies or go forth altogether. Remember that the Muslims in Medina were constantly under attack. So they were, they were instructed over here to be vigilant, to be careful to take their precaution. So remember, when you fear a real threat, when a threat is real, then you must take your precaution, then you cannot be careless over there. Believing in Allah and relying upon him, does it mean that a person becomes careless? No, hello, hello, can I take your precaution? do those things which are necessary to protect yourself to protect your health, your safety, your

01:07:34--> 01:08:15

well being? What in the mean koulamallah you bought the urn. And indeed, there is among you, He who lingers behind meaning there are people who are lazy, who stall who don't obey right away, who don't go forth in the way of Allah right away, they delay as much as possible. And if disaster strikes you, meaning you suffer some loss, he says Allah has favored me in that I was not present with them. 100 Allah, I was not there. This is what they see. The Muslims are suffering. And what does he say? Alhamdulillah was not there the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered? And he says Alhamdulillah was not there. When in asaba, come follow me number. But if bounty comes to you from

01:08:15--> 01:08:58

Allah, meaning Allah gives you success, some victory, He will surely say, as if there had never been between you and him any affection, Oh, I wish I had been with them. So I could have attained a great attainment. meeting this person is not really in the way of Allah. He is only out for personal gain. And this is something we need to ask ourselves, that when we do something religious, what is the intention? Is it just personal gain? Is it to become famous? Is it to make some money? Is it to impress some people? What is it for you cartel, feasability law, so that those fight in the cause of a law, who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, meaning when you do something good, do it

01:08:58--> 01:09:21

for the sake of Allah only, and he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory, we will bestow upon him a great reward. And what is the matter with you, that you fight not in the cause of Allah, and for the oppressed among men, and for the and for the oppressed among men, women and children who say Our Lord, take us out of the city.

01:09:23--> 01:09:59

Our Lord, take us out of the city of oppressive people, and appoint for us from yourself a protector, and appoint for us from yourself a helper, those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of balut. So fight against the allies of shared plan. Indeed, the plot of shaytaan has ever been weak. So be firm and do your best. So what do we see in these is that a believer cannot just sit back and take it easy and focus on their own comfort? No, we have to be concerned about the greater good. We have to be concerned about the people who are

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

being oppressed in different places, sometimes in our own families, sometimes in our own cities, we must become a voice for the voiceless.

01:10:09--> 01:10:57

Alam de la la la Lena kilala home. Have you not seen those people who were told, Khufu, ADL calm, restrain your hands, meaning from fighting. You see, the Muslims were not allowed to fight at the beginning meaning to participate in battle. Even though they were being persecuted, they were not allowed to raise weapons to defend themselves or to take revenge. What were they told instead and established prayer and gives a cat. Now this was a very important training period. And then this is a huge lesson for us that our first response to every trial should not be to you know, fight back, it should be to turn to a love first and every conflict is not solved with violence and

01:10:57--> 01:11:42

confrontation. There are other ways the Muslims in Morocco are told pray Salah focus on Salah gives a cat and remember that salah and the cat These are two ways of fighting the nuts so the first thing to do before any other is to fight your own self to discipline your own self. You see some people they become very emotional when it comes to Islam and the first thing they want to do is just pick up a gun pick up a knife pick up a weapon and go kill you know the enemy. What we learn over here is that the first thing to do is to discipline yourself a female son up what is a cat? Okay masala established the five daily prayers What does that mean? discipline your knifes if you cannot leave

01:11:42--> 01:12:23

your bed at fudger time, then what are you talking about fighting the enemy. discipline yourself first discipline your ego first your desires first and add to the cat give be a giver. Instead of fighting people think about what you can give them focus on generosity. But then what happened later, when fat when fighting was ordained for them meaning later on in Medina when the Muslims were commanded to fight the enemy at once a party of them feared men as they feared Allah or with even greater fear, meaning they were afraid they did not want to fight. They said Our Lord, why have you decreed upon us fighting? If only you had postponed it for us for a short time? Allah artist has

01:12:23--> 01:13:17

called in Matera dunya khaleel say the enjoyment of this world is little and the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah and injustice will not be done to you even as much as a thread inside a date seed support of the law. Remember, no matter what you get in this life, it is little it is not as good as what Allah subhanaw taala has stored in the hereafter. So don't just be greedy for what you can get right now. Don't settle for less be eager for what is more, what is greater seek Allah's approval. aina mata kuno wherever you may be, you did a Komal mode. Death will overtake you when Oh kuntum fee, Buju Masha yada even if you should be within towers of lufti construction, because the

01:13:17--> 01:13:56

angel of death will reach there also. There is nothing that can keep the Angel of Death out. There is nothing that can that can block him out. No, he will certainly come and take you away when it is time. So death is coming prepared for it. But if good comes to them, they say this is from Allah. And if evil defaults, then they say this is from you. They blame the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam for their losses, and there are some people who will blame Islam, they will blame their fasting, they will blame their Salah, they will blame the fact that they're Muslim, say all things are from Allah. So what is the matter with those people that they can hardly understand any

01:13:56--> 01:14:40

statement. So this is the trade of the hypocrites, that they don't understand the word of Allah. They don't understand the decrees of Allah, may Allah protect us masaba come in has an attained feminine law. Whatever comes to you have good is from Allah. When a Saba come in, say at infomine Nuff said sick. But what comes to you of evil is from yourself. And this doesn't mean that we have to blame ourselves and just drown in guilt. This means that we have the ability to change our condition. Because if a mistake a wrongdoing on our part, cause the difficulty and that means that we could remove the cause and then the difficulty will go away. It means that we do have control

01:14:40--> 01:14:59

over our situation. We're not just victims will auto send mechelen se rasuna and we have sent to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the people as a messenger. And sufficient is Allah as witness. He who he who obeys the messenger has in fact obeyed Allah but don't

01:15:00--> 01:15:39

Turn away. We have not sent you over them as a guardian. And they say we pledge obedience. This is the hypocrites, but when they leave you, a group of them spend the night determining to do other than what you say. But Allah records what they plan by night sopran the law, you see the hypocrites what they will do is that in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would say yes, yes, of course, yes, far, we will do this, but then immediately that, but then as soon as they would leave the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they would begin criticizing the decision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they will start mocking and backbiting and

01:15:39--> 01:16:25

objecting spatola if we are ever consulted in regard to something, and an agreement is made with consultation, then stick to the plan, stick to the decision, even if you don't agree with it. If it is religiously wrong, that is different. But if it's just a different opinion than yours, then do not oppose the jamara do not leave the congregation and avoid this reprehensible behavior that before the people in the meeting during the discussion, you are quiet. And then after it is over at home or with like minded people. Now you start backbiting and criticizing the entire group. If you believe in something different, say it, disagree, voice your opinion. But there is a time and place

01:16:25--> 01:16:34

for it once you get up from that gathering the colosse because a majority so Amana gatherings are an Amana. They're a trust.

01:16:35--> 01:17:21

So leave them alone and rely upon Allah and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs of Allah to the baronial Koran, then do they not reflect upon the Quran? We are being asked over here? And through this question, we are actually being reprimanded that what is wrong with you? Why don't you reflect upon the Quran, you must reflect upon the Quran. And if it had been from any other than Allah, they would have found within it too much contradiction. You see the double is to go into the depths of the meanings of the Quran, it is to reflect upon the meanings of the Quran. Why in order to take lesson from it, in order to bring theory into practice. So reflect on the Koran dive into

01:17:21--> 01:18:07

its meanings so that you know for sure that yes, this is Columbia Law. Yes, this is Arsenal Cologne, Arsenal Hadees. And you develop your team has an imbecile he said that the Quran was revealed so that it may be reflected upon and acted by. But people have taken its recitation as action, meaning people think it is enough to just recite it. Even taymiyah said that whoever reflects upon the Quran, seeking guidance from it, than the way of truth will become clear to him, only then the help will become clear to him. So if we want guidance from the Quran, then we must reflect upon it. And when there comes to them information about public security or fear, they spread it around, this was

01:18:07--> 01:18:52

the way of the hypocrites that they would spread news especially worrying troubling news very quickly. And when such information is, you know, passed around people, you know, they add their spices to it to make it more exciting to make it more shocking. And then the truth is mixed with falsehood, things are blown out of proportion, conspiracies arise, and then people are not able to distinguish between what is true and what is untrue. And because of this, so many people suffer, and we can see in this day and age also how because of you know false information, fake news, right being spread so quickly amongst people that there are people who believe that any Coronavirus has

01:18:52--> 01:19:35

been spread through 3g, any This is ridiculous. This is an insult the people who are losing their lives. So ever. So whenever we hear such things, what is our responsibility? Almost panatela tells us over here, but if they had referred it back to the messenger or to those of authority among them, meaning ascertain first, is it even true, then the ones who can draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it meaning let those in authority let those of knowledge make the announcements. No one has hired you as the town crier. So you don't need to spread news all the time. And this is something that we should be very careful about. Because some of us we have taken

01:19:35--> 01:19:59

it as our responsibility that you know any piece of information that we hear that we receive, we must forward it to the world right and put it in every whatsapp group and forward it to everybody in your you know in your contact list. This is the month of Ramadan the time of Riba please let us focus on the vicar of Allah. Let us focus on the Quran on the on the recitation

01:20:00--> 01:20:17

Have the Quran. Let us read more Koran and less of WhatsApp messages seriously. Let us listen to more Koran and listen to less of you know these random videos that are based on false information fake information, any use your time wisely.

01:20:18--> 01:21:07

For cotton feasable in the lead to colorful a land of suck the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is instructed over here. So fight in the cause of Allah, you are not held responsible except for yourself. Meaning you must do something, even if nobody is with you. Lead by example, by action. Don't just preach but practice also. And encourage the believers meaning to join you that perhaps Allah will restrain the military might of those who disbelieve and Allah is greater in might and stronger in exemplary punishment. Manish Varsha Arden has enitan ecola who knows libo minha whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward there from and whoever intercedes for an evil cause

01:21:07--> 01:21:50

will have a burden there from And ever is Allah over all things a keeper. This is a very important thing. interceding for a good cause means to advocate for someone so that they can get some benefit or the conflict that they're that they have with someone gets resolved. And advocating for someone interceding for someone also includes making Doral for them. My Yes, Varsha Burton has an issue that that has that includes all of these things, making peace between people resolving their conflict, making their offer them requesting, making a request on their behalf so that they can get some benefit. And interceding for a bad cause means causing dissension among people spreading gossip,

01:21:50--> 01:22:35

aggravating conflict, right or advocating for sinful wrong causes. And this is it shows us the importance of advocacy for good causes for people who are not able to advocate for themselves that if Allah has given you a voice, the ability to you know, use your platform or a place of influence, then use that to give voice to those who are not being heard. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said his Pharaoh photo journal, intercede and earn reward. And at the same time, be careful because if you become an advocate for something sinful, for something that is unjust, than the guilt of all who follow you will also be on you will either who can be the hating and when you are greeted

01:22:35--> 01:23:20

with a greeting, then greet in return with one that is better than it or at least return it. Indeed, Allah is Ever over all things and accountant. So say Salaam spread the Salah, because saying Salaam means praying for someone safety, security, their well being that Assam or Aleikum, may you be free from worry May you be saved from grief from any hardship from any loss, this is a draw. And remember that saying scenario to one another. This creates an air of safety. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said I've just sent them the slomo spread scenario and you will be safe which is why we should say Salaam to one another even at home. You see sometimes we reserve the greeting of Salaam

01:23:20--> 01:24:01

just for strangers, but for people that we are living with our own spouse, our own children when we meet them first thing in the morning when we see them we don't say Sunnah. So we should say Sanam actually Salah does slomo and and saying Salaam is one of those things that brings about forgiveness bedroo Sam, and there's reward for saying Salaam it's a way of increasing love. It's a way of increasing Amen. And remember that a person who does not even say why they call center, then they're truly stingy. It is a sign of their bull, Allah, there is no deity except Him, He will surely assemble you for account on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt and who is more

01:24:01--> 01:24:23

truthful than Allah in statement than it is said. What is the matter with you that you are two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back for what they earned? Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent a stray and he whom Allah sends a stray? Never will you find for him a way of guidance, these hypocrites they wish.

01:24:24--> 01:25:00

These hypocrites wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved. So you would be alike, so do not take from them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them. And take not from among them any ally or helper, meaning if an if on the outward, they say that they're with you, but then they come to fight you, then you have to take you have to give preference to their actions over their words because actions speak louder than words. If they're treating you as an enemy, then you also have to treat them as an enemy except for those who take

01:25:00--> 01:25:37

refuge with the people between yourselves and whom is a treaty, or those who come to you, their hearts strained at the prospect of fighting you or fighting their own people beating some people just don't have that choice. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they remove themselves from you, and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause for fighting against them, you will find other hypocrites who wish to obtain security from you. And to obtain security from their people, every time they are returned to the influence of disbelief, they fall back into it. So if they do not

01:25:37--> 01:26:13

withdraw from you, or offer you peace, or restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you overtake them, beating them, they're your enemy. So that is how you should treat them. And those we have made for you against them a clear authorization, one that can only move meaning ayoko Tula Milan Illa haha. And never it is for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake, meaning a believer can only kill another believer by accident, never on purpose. This is something that cannot be any allowed or expected it does not perfect a believer.

01:26:16--> 01:27:01

And whoever kills a believer by mistake than the freeing of a believing slave and a compensation and a compensation payment presented to the deceased family, you need two things are needed. Firstly, a person has to free a slave. And secondly, they have to give the deer the blood money to the heirs of the victim unless they give us charity, meaning the heirs pardon the killer. But if the deceased was from a people at war with you, and he was a believer, than only the freeing of a believing slave, meaning the no blood money, and if he was from a people with whom you have a treaty than a compensation payment presented to his family, and the freeing of a believing slave, and whoever does

01:27:01--> 01:27:44

not find, then instead a fast for two months consecutively. Like for example these days, any person cannot free a slave. But if accidentally they kill another Muslim, what are they supposed to do, they cannot free a slave. So another option is given fast for two months consecutively. This means that if a person misses one fast, then they have to start the two months of fasting all over again, nonstop fasting every day. This is the expiation for involuntary manslaughter. Because remember, this is a violation against Allah and against human beings, seeking acceptance of repentance from Allah and Allah is Ever knowing and wise. But whoever kills a believer intentionally on purpose than

01:27:44--> 01:28:29

his recompenses hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment. So never even think about committing this evil. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us that everything belonging to a believer is sacred. His honor, his blood and his property. The entire believer is sacred. Yeah, you Halina Ave, all you who have believed, when you go forth to fight in the cause of Allah, then investigate and do not say to one who gives you a greeting of peace, that you're not a believer aspiring for the goods of worldly life. For with Allah are many acquisitions. What happened was that there was a shepherd,

01:28:30--> 01:29:11

outside of Medina. And when the Muslims saw him, the shepherd said Salaam to them. But the Muslims thought that this man was actually a spy or something. And he is saying Salaam was just to, you know, protect his life. So they fought him. And that Shepherd died in the process and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam became very upset with the companions. And this ayah was also revealed that when someone says Salaam to you, they say that they're Muslim, you have to accept their outward. Because alika come to me in Kabul, you yourselves were like that before, then Allah conferred his great favor upon you. So investigate, Indeed, Allah is Ever

01:29:12--> 01:29:54

acquainted. The thing is that we should never forget our past, we should remember how we used to be the mistakes that we used to make, because sometimes we're very quick to pass judgment on others and to, you know, penalize them and to be and we become very harsh with them. So be tolerant, think about yourself. Think about how many times you made the very mistakes that you see your children making, be forgiving. And instead of constantly, you know, being harsh with people, create a safe space for them, so that they're allowed to make mistakes, and then they're allowed to learn from their mistakes. Our problem is we don't kill people, but we hurt them so much. We insult them so

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

much. That we literally kill them from the inside. We damage

01:30:00--> 01:30:04

match their personality. And this is something that we have to be very careful about.

01:30:05--> 01:30:10

Then it is said not equal are those believers remaining at home

01:30:11--> 01:30:50

other than the disabled, and the Mujahideen who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. One is a person who is sitting at home focusing on their personal life. And there is another person who is striving in the way of Allah striving for the religion of Allah. Of course, both people since their effort is different, their work is different, their levels will also be different near Allah. Allah has preferred the Mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain behind by degrees, there is a difference of many degrees between them. And to both Allah has promised the best reward, but Allah has preferred the Mujahideen over those who

01:30:50--> 01:31:32

remain behind with a great reward. There are Jatin Minh Who am affiliate on water hammer, degrees of high position from him and forgiveness and mercy. And Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful. And this is why each and every one of us should think about how can I serve the deen of Allah? How can I help it No, serve a lesbian? What can I do, even if it's just a difference of a drop that I can make, that I can perhaps share something good with someone, any any effort that I can make for the cause of Allah, I should take that as an honor, I should take that as a great opportunity. Indeed, those whom the angels taken death, while wronging themselves, the angels will say in what condition were

01:31:32--> 01:32:15

you they will say we were oppressed in the land, the angels will say was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to emigrate they're in. For those. The refuge is hell and evil it is as a destination, except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan, nor are they directed to a way for those It is expected that Allah will pardon them. And Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving, and whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth, many alternative locations and abundance and whoever leaves his home as an immigrant to Allah and His Messenger, and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent on Allah, and Allah

01:32:15--> 01:33:04

is Ever forgiving, and merciful. So we see that the place or the space, where you end up disobeying Allah subhanaw taala, where you find it hard to control yourself, or you have no option, but to violate the limits that Allah has set, then you must leave that place, you must move away from that space with dignity. This is also a form of digital, when we had util men, hedorah men, men, Allahu anhu, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the immigrant is the one who immigrates from what Allah has forbidden him from. So yes, he did it at times, means that you have to move from one city to another, like the Sahaba made Hitler. But sometimes, Hitler is also deleting a certain app

01:33:04--> 01:33:34

on your phone. Sometimes Hitler is unfollowing certain pages on social media because you know that every time you open that app, every time you you know, open that page, you end up looking at something wrong, you end up listening to something wrong, and that is leading you away from Allah. And don't fear scarcity, because there is an abundance of good things out there. There is an abundance of better options out there, but you won't find them until you go search for them.

01:33:35--> 01:34:15

And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer. If you fear that those who disbelieve may disrupt or attack you, indeed, the disbelievers are ever to you a clear enemy. So remember that at the beginning Salah was shortened during travel because of the fear that the Muslims faced everywhere outside of Medina. But remember that this is an allowance, a gift that Allah subhanaw taala extended beyond that, and this is why the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would shorten his prayers in all of his travels even after the conquest of Makkah. So shortening the prayer while traveling is actually is similar. Now the matter of the

01:34:15--> 01:34:55

fear prayer is mentioned. And when you are among them and lead them in prayer, let a group of them stand in prayer with you and let them carry their arms and when they have prostrated. Let them be in position behind you and have the other group come forward which has not yet prayed and let them pray with you taking precaution and carrying their weapons. Those who disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one single attack. But there is no blame upon you. If you are troubled by rain or are ill for putting down your weapons. But take precaution. Indeed, Allah has prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment. There

01:34:55--> 01:34:59

is a number of benefits over here. You see even if during

01:35:00--> 01:35:40

Salah, one is supposed to be vigilant, meaning on guard because you've seen the fear prayer, the Muslims are told to carry their weapons. So for example, in the middle of a battle, or when there's a risk of an attack, then the the Muslims should not just pray carelessly, no, they should pray in this manner that is described in this ayah and they should carry their weapons. So if in Salah you have to be vigilant than what do you think about others situations, remember praying at home these days, and not in the masjid, this is all part of precaution, and we should not feel guilty, we should not feel bad, because this is something that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us to take the

01:35:40--> 01:36:22

necessary precaution. And also this shows us that if in a situation like extreme fear, extreme danger, Salah cannot be left, this means that we cannot leave Salah for what is less than that. Unfortunately, sometimes we delay our Salah or we completely Leave it, stuff that alone over worldly things, Petty issues. So this is something that we have to be careful about. And when you have completed the prayer, then remember Allah standing, sitting or lying on your sides, but when you become secure, then reestablish regular prayers being then pray in the regular manner. Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times, meaning there are fixed

01:36:22--> 01:37:06

times for Sunnah. So we cannot delay all of our prayers and just perform all of them just before we sleep. No, we must perform Salah on time, when after he knew Liberty law in comb and do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. Why? Because if you should be suffering, if it is hard, so are they suffering as you're suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they do not expect? So strive, as a seeker of general should strive and Allah is Ever knowing, and wise? Easy. There are people who strive so hard for their worldly goals, who work so hard for their short term goals. Then what about the people who want the agenda of eternity? Who want the home of the hereafter should we not exert

01:37:06--> 01:37:53

ourselves, you know, when the when the month of Ramadan comes, then an announcement is made, that he has belly and hiding acumen that all seeker of good come forward. This is the time when you rush when you exert extra effort in doing good in seeking your Lords pleasure. So don't be lazy over here and just look out there how much effort people exert for their worldly goals. You should also do something in that Anjelica illegal keytab. Indeed, We have revealed to you the book in truth. Why so you may judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you and do not be for the deceitful and advocate. So before you advocate for someone, before you support them, make sure that what

01:37:53--> 01:38:36

they're doing is right, was still feeding and seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful, and do not argue on behalf of those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah loves not one who is a habitually sinful deceiver. So people who are very deceptive, and people whose deception becomes known, then don't advocate for them because they're not believable. They're not believable, be cautious. He has the phone meanness, they conceal from the people. They try to hide their evil, intentional intentions from the people, but they cannot conceal from a law. And this is for everybody. No one can hide from a law. And he is with them. When they spend the night in

01:38:36--> 01:39:17

such as he does not accept of speech, meaning when people are saying wrong things, even in a very private setting, in the privacy of their home. Allah subhanaw taala is listening, he knows what we are saying And ever is Allah of what they do encompassing here you are those who argue on their behalf in this worldly life, but who will argue with Allah for them on the day of judgment? Or who will then be their representative? You see, sometimes we side with certain individuals, even though we know that they are in the wrong, why do we side with them, just because their family or their friends? You know, for example, we see a clear injustice in our own household where we see for

01:39:17--> 01:39:59

instance, that our brother or our son is mistreating his wife, or we see for example, that our husband is not being good to his mother. So why is it now that we're just going to side with the people that we like be just over there because while you may defend them right now, who is going to defend them before Allah This is not love, love is that you help them recognize their mistake, that you protect them, you save them you stop them, woman Yarmouth Zoo and, and whoever does it wrong or wrongs himself but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So the fact is that everybody makes mistakes.

01:40:00--> 01:40:04

But what is needed is that we seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala

01:40:05--> 01:40:50

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that any Muslim who commits a sin that makes will do and performs to Africa and asks Allah for forgiveness than Allah who would certainly forgive him for that. And then the Prophet sallallahu already said and recited this ayah. So, we should also seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada. And whoever commits a sin only earns it against himself, and Allah is Ever knowing and wise, but whoever earns an offense or a sin, and then blames it on an innocent person, to preserve his own self image to save himself of guilt, what does he do? He blames someone else than such a person, even if he gets away with it, he has taken upon himself his lender

01:40:50--> 01:41:31

and manifests in. And if it was an if it was not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy, a group of them would have determined to mislead you. But they do not mislead except themselves, and they will not harm you at all. Because you see some people that came to the Prophet sallallahu eddison, regarding one of their personal disputes, and the person who was guilty, convinced the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or at least tried to, you know, with his, with his eloquence, he tried to portray himself as someone very innocent. So Allah subhanaw taala, protected His Messenger over here by revealing the truth. So it shows us that just because someone is very eloquent, and

01:41:31--> 01:42:12

they're very persistent, it doesn't mean that we accept everything that they say, we have to look beyond the words. And Allah has revealed to you the book and wisdom, and has taught you that which you did not know, and ever has the favor of Allah upon you been great. The fact is that someone who is given the code on any portion of the Quran, someone who learns something about the Quran that they previously did not know, this is truly Alice, Alice favor upon them. No good is there in much of their private conversation. This is about the hypocrites, because, and in general, also, if you think about it, when people, you know, have their private conversations, they're whispering to each

01:42:12--> 01:42:54

other, what kind of conversations are these, it's either a waste of time or it's sin. Rarely is it for a good cause. So this shows that we shouldn't do this, that much, we should avoid it, except for those who enjoy charity, or that which is right, or conciliation between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Allah, then we are going to give him a great reward. So that shows us that when we are in public, then we should not whisper amongst ourselves, excluding some people, because it makes those individuals feel left out. And they feel suspicious. They think that they're being spoken about in a negative way. And remember that everything does not have to be said

01:42:54--> 01:43:33

privately, in the ears of people. Why are we so afraid that we always need to whisper you know, if something is truth, if it is fair, then have no shame and have no guilt in openly saying it. But at times we see that whispering is actually good when the exceptions are mentioned over here, when there is a matter of South Africa. So for example, someone whispers into the ear of another to give sadaqa Why do they whisper because if they were to say it out loud, and others found out, then you know he would feel embarrassed, or the person to whom the charity is going to be given, they would feel embarrassed. Likewise, the second thing is when someone whispers into the ear of another to do

01:43:33--> 01:44:14

something moral, something good. So for example, you want to remind your, you know, son to eat with the right hand. And if you say to him in front of everybody, you will feel embarrassed. So if you go whisper to him eat with your right hand, then that is excellent. And then also for Islam between people reconciling them. And that is also something that is greatly virtuous, and whoever opposes the messenger, after guidance has become clear to him, and follows other than the way of the believers, we will give him what he has taken and drive him into hell and evil it is as a destination. This shows that we should stick to the congregation. Indeed, Allah does not forgive

01:44:14--> 01:44:46

association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills and he who and he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray. This is why it is so important for us to learn what shank is so that we can avoid it. Because remember, ship is a major sin, a sin that is unforgivable. And remember that the good deeds of a machinic will not be accepted. In a Hades we learned that the gates of Paradise are open on Mondays and on Thursdays. And every servant

01:44:47--> 01:44:51

who associates nothing with Allah is forgiven.

01:44:52--> 01:44:59

So who is not forgiven than those who associate others with Allah except for the man who has a grudge?

01:45:00--> 01:45:51

against his brother about them, it is said delay these two until they are reconciled. In your own I mean dooney illa in earth, they call upon instead of him, none but female deities goddesses, and they actually call upon none but a rebellious shape on and there is no reality to these idols. And when a person worships anyone other than Allah, in reality, they're worshiping the shape on who is shaped on larina who law whom Allah has cursed, we'll call it a seminary by Deacon acebo mahfouda, for he had said, I will surely take from among your servants, a specific portion. Remember, shavon has taken an oath, not just one, multiple oaths to mislead mankind to harm them. So it is necessary

01:45:51--> 01:46:14

that we are on guard that we are careful, we recognize this enemy, and we take this enemy as an enemy, that we don't forget about this enemy, we don't become oblivious to this enemy. Even cranium said that a way of shaitan is that he smells the knifes of a person until he knows which trait is more firm in him.

01:46:15--> 01:46:59

Meaning what are his strengths? What are his weaknesses? This is what chatline first checks, right? He checks whether, you know a person is more firm, or he's lazy. So if he sees that a person has weakness and lack of courage, meaning he's lazy, then shikon strives to make him firm. in that meeting, he tries to make him more and more lazy, to weaken his resolve, and to make him weak hearted regarding what he is commanded to do, and make it very heavy on him. So he finds it easy to just leave it completely. So then he ends up abandoning the good or becomes negligent in it and becomes lazy. And if he sees that a person has the strength, the firm will, in because some people

01:46:59--> 01:47:48

you know, they're they're very strong in their determination, they have deep resolve, then he tells him, that this is not good enough, you know what you're doing is not good enough, you need to do what is different. And then a person burdens himself with what he cannot handle. A person goes on taking more and more upon themselves to a point that they break. This is also one of the tricks of Shanklin, that he either makes us very lazy, if we're already prone to being lazy. Or if we are very committed, you know, we are very energetic, we exert effort, we are hard working than shaytaan, he tells us that what we're doing is not good enough, that we need to do more. And so we keep exerting

01:47:48--> 01:48:30

and exerting until we are no longer able to do anything. So be wary of the tricks of shape on and say, are all the Billahi min, Ash shaytani r rajim. Anytime a negative thought comes to your head, when it will they learn at home, when a woman needs a new home, when I'm on a home, he said, and I will mislead them, and I will arousing them sinful desires, and I will commend them. So they will slit the ears of cattle. And the Arabs would do that, to dedicate their animals to the idols, and I will commend them. So they will change the creation of a law people will not be satisfied with the way that unless panel data has created them, they will want to change themselves. And this is so

01:48:30--> 01:49:09

true, where it's amazing how a woman is not even satisfied with the shape of her eyebrows. So even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly curse the, you know, the women who do this alone will still do it. And then we see that people are not satisfied with the shape of their nose, they're not satisfied with the shape of their face. And then people will change the creation that Allah subhanaw taala has made them in. And then this goes on to even changing one's gender and things like that. And whoever takes shape on as an ally, instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss. This is why we see that there's no end to it. You know, people will get stuck in this

01:49:09--> 01:49:41

habit where they keep modifying their body, there is no end to it. URI to whom a human need him, shake on promises them and arouses desire in them. He makes them believe that you know what, just this one change and colossal loss just just a little bit. And that's it. No, no, no, it's not going to be that's it. There is going to be something else after that. But shavon does not promise them except delusion. So the thing is, that shape pawn makes sinful things very attractive, and che pawn presents the truth as false and falsehood as truth to us.

01:49:42--> 01:49:59

This is why so Fianna 30 he said that innovation, bitter is more beloved to a place that sin. Why? Because a sin is repented from when a person knows that they're committing a sin. Eventually they will leave it or they will perhaps they will leave it but it

01:50:00--> 01:50:46

Innovation is not repented from, when it comes to bigger a person believes they're doing something good. So why will they leave it? So remember, shavon has his eyes on you, he's always after you to try to mislead you. And chip on knows your weaknesses, we learn in the Hadees. But how, when other artists that I was created, upon went and observed the body, the form, and he said that this is a creature that will not be able to control his desire, meaning shaitan knows our weakness, that we are weak before our desires. So she upon comes to us through the door of desires, and this is why fasting is so important. Because when we're fasting, we're closing all those doors, we're closing

01:50:46--> 01:51:40

all those gaps, all those means through which a pawn app has access to us. Right, Showtime, any we're not allowed to eat or drink any Why? What what's the benefit? Because we are closing the way of shaitan we learn in a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the champion has despaired that you will ever worship idols right meaning in Arabia. However, he is hopeful that you will do that which you belittle. Meaning he he he tries to mislead you through sins that you belittle. So shaitan belittles since for us. So beware. Never say about a sin. Oh, it's so small. It's okay. What's the big deal? No, it is a big deal. Because it's a sin against Allah. Allah ecomo

01:51:40--> 01:52:24

home jahannam the refuge of those will be held, and they will not find from it and escape. But the ones who believe and do righteous deeds, we will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow we're in, they will abide forever. It is the promise of a law which is truth, and who is more truthful than a lie in statement. Paradise is not obtained by your wishful thinking, nor by that of the People of the Scripture. Whoever does it wrong will be recompense for it. Miyama Tzu and you deserve to be and he will not find besides Allah, a protector or a helper, and whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while being a believer, those will enter Paradise and will

01:52:24--> 01:53:15

not be wronged even as much as the speck on a date seed and who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while being a doer of good. So we see that the intention is good, and the action is good, and follows the religion of Ibrahim, the manner is good inclining toward truth, and Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend, what the hood Allahu Ibrahima Halima. Why is this being mentioned, because we are encouraged to follow the way of Ibrahim or de Sena we are being told that Ibrahim or his Sam is a leader who is worth following. Why? Because he attained what the believer desires. he attained hula friendship of Allah subhanaw taala. What does Allah Ibrahim Halima and

01:53:15--> 01:53:57

remember that this is the highest level of love. And how is it that Ibrahim or Sam Got that? How did he attain that? By being obedient to Allah soprano tada we learned in the Quran about Ibrahim or the Sunnah, that it call it a horrible a slim Submit. He said Islam to little bit early mean I have submitted to the Lord of the worlds when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what is Islam? He said a use Lima. He said I use Lima calbuco Lila hit Allah, that you submit your heart to Allah, what I'm to what Gee, how would you How can a light or Allah and you direct your face to Allah? What does it mean? You submit to Allah, meaning you obey Him, when Allah says something when

01:53:57--> 01:54:37

Allah commands us of something, lebap Allahu Allah beak when Allah has prohibited us from something, okay, my job, I will leave it. This is Islam. This is submission that your heart surrenders to Allah, and that you direct your face to Allah, meaning you make your focus your ultimate goal, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And whatever you do, you seek a law. You see when you when you're doing something, for example, for someone, you're preparing some food, you think about them, but when a believer is doing something for Allah, he thinks about a law. So this is what it means by unto what do you what Chaka Illa? What do you let him have his semi Watashi wa filled out and to

01:54:37--> 01:54:59

Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and ever is a law of all things encompassing and the requests from you or profit illegal ruling concerning women say Allah gives you a ruling about them, and about what has been recited to you in the book concerning the orphan girls, to whom you do not give what is decreed for them and yet you desire to marry them.

01:55:00--> 01:55:41

And concerning the oppressed among children, and that you maintain for orphans, their rights, injustice, and whatever you do have good Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing of it, we see over here, that the orphans are mentioned that we should be concerned for their rights and we should be just with them. And this is a responsibility upon all of us, that we should take care of the needs of the orphans and this Ramadan make the intention to take care of some orphan, even if you can give some money, if you can send some money somewhere anywhere, so that an orphan is fed, so that an orphan receives under either gift perhaps, do that participate in that what anymore, Adam Hoffman, Bartley,

01:55:41--> 01:56:28

Hondo Sousa, and if a woman fears from her husband contempt or evasion and this happens sometimes, that people are married, but they seem to be not interested in one another. And especially in the case of a woman, this can be very difficult, because now any what what option does she have. So, there is an allowance that is being given over here, which is that there is no sin upon them, if they make terms of settlement between them, and settlement is best and present and present in human souls is stinginess. But if you do good and fear Allah, then Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do acquainted. So, the fact is, that in every relationship, there are differences, differences will

01:56:28--> 01:57:12

always be there, but it is important to work on the solutions and not dwell on the problems. So, if there is ever a difference, a problem mended, solve the problem, solve the conflict, and it is important to not just have expectations of the other to not just be demanding from the other, but also be giving because a relationship is meant to be two ways. And whatever it is that you want from the other, for example, you want your spouse to become more, you know, you want them to listen to you start listening to them more, and also have realistic expectations. And in this ayah, we are told soil is best. And you see sort of a compromise, a settlement cannot be made unless and until

01:57:12--> 01:57:47

there is communication. So communicate, communicate your expectations, communicate your wishes, your intentions, your goals, your hurt, don't just be a riddle that the other person has to solve all the time. And you see this as a weakness that is in human beings will lead on to emphasis Sure, sure. Greed is ever present in the hearts of people. What is this show that a person is eager for good for themselves only, they don't want to give anything they just want to take. And this is present in human beings. And if we're honest with ourselves, many times we are acting on our show.

01:57:48--> 01:58:27

This is why we're told when you put your hand up, see for Ola ecoman, willfully Herman whoever is saved from the show himself, then such people are successful. And you will never be able to be equal and feeling between wives, even if you should strive to do so. So do not inclined completely toward one and leave another hanging meeting in the limbo. So she's neither treated like a wife, nor is she free to marry another. And if you amend your affairs and fear Allah, then Indeed Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful. So the fact is that the matter of the heart is not always in a person's control, your emotions, your feelings are not always controllable. But what is controllable is your

01:58:27--> 01:59:07

actions what you do, but if they separate, a love will enrich each of them from his abundance, and ever is Allah encompassing and wise, and to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And we have instructed those who are given the Scripture before you and yourselves to fear Allah, but if you disbelieve them to Allah belongs, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and ever is Allah free of need and praiseworthy? What Allah emf is something summer worth you, Mr. Phil aldub. And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. If he wills he can do away with you or people

01:59:07--> 01:59:56

and bring others in your place, and ever is a law competent to do that men can add to so other dunya whoever desires the reward of this world than with Allah is the reward of this world and the hereafter. So the question is, what is it that you want? What is it that you desire? Allah is capable of giving both? What are you choosing And ever is Allah hearing and seeing so make your intentions sincere? And whatever you do, make a hero your your goal, make the pleasure of Allah your ultimate goal? Yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu Oh, you will have believed be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it'd be against yourselves or parents and relatives.

01:59:56--> 01:59:59

Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both

02:00:00--> 02:00:43

So follow not personal inclination, lest you not be just, and if you distort your testimony, or refuse to give it, then Indeed Allah is Ever with what you do acquainted. So we're told in this ayah, that we should be just that we should stand for justice, and we should not follow the desire, especially if we are in a position of making judgment between people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are three types of judges, one of whom will go to Jannah, and two will go to help. The one who will go to gender is a man who knows what is right, and gives judgment accordingly. So they learn, and then they make judgment, according to that knowledge. But a man who

02:00:43--> 02:01:27

knows what is right and act wrongfully in his judgment will go to hell. And a man who gives judgment for people when he's ignorant, will also go to hell. So be just in making decisions. And when you're making a decision, if you are in a position where you have to decide certain things, then learn learn what is lawful and what is unlawful, do not speak without knowledge. Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu. amino, all you who have believed, Believe, believe in who in Allah and His Messenger, and the book that he has sent down upon His Messenger, meaning, have a conscious a man, and a man that will that will reflect in your actions.

02:01:29--> 02:02:14

So believe in the book that he has sent down upon His Messenger and the scripture which he sent down before you, and whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, in the last day has certainly gone far astray. Indeed, those who have believed them disbelieved, then believed them disbelieved, and then increased in disbelief. Never will ALLAH forgive them, nor will he guide them to a way Who are these people give tidings to the hypocrites, and when I feel that there is for them a painful punishment. Who are they, those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers? Do this seek with them honor, but indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. For him, Miller is

02:02:14--> 02:03:00

utterly law he Jim era. And this is something that we all need to think about. That are we seeking to? are we seeking honor before people? Is it that we want to become very respectful in the eyes of people? And if that is the goal, then are we doing things that displease Allah in the process by which we anger Allah? Who is it, that we're really trying to please people, or Allah, will call the naza Allah, Allah config Kitab. And it has already come down to you in the book, that when you hear the verses of Allah recited, they're denied that they're being denied by them and ridiculed. Meaning there are people who are making fun of the verses of Allah rejecting them, then do not sit with

02:03:00--> 02:03:23

them, until they enter into another conversation, meaning either defend their religion over there, or leave, don't be a part of such gatherings. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed, Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers and hell all together. So this shows us very clearly that we should not be in such gatherings where ullas verses are being mocked.

02:03:24--> 02:04:05

Who are the hypocrites, those who wait and watch you, then if you gain a victory from Allah, they say, where are we not with you? Meaning if you have something good, they want to have a share in it. But if the disbelievers have a success, they say to them, did we not gain the advantage over you, but we protected you from the believers? Allah will judge between Allah holdrege between all of you on the Day of Resurrection, and never will Allah give the disbelievers over the believers away, meaning temporarily the believers may suffer at their hands. However, in the final outcome, Allah subhanaw taala will always give success, the upper hand to the believers in the Mona Filipina, you

02:04:05--> 02:04:16

have your own Allah, indeed the hypocrites think to deceive Allah, but in reality, he is deceiving them. And when they stand for prayer, they stand lazy Lee

02:04:18--> 02:04:59

what either como de la sala, como que cela their hearts are not in the Salah at all. They don't feel like praying at all. They don't want to pray, so they stall as much as possible. Then why do they pray your own and NASA just showing themselves to the people so that nobody says that? Oh, they didn't pray and not remembering a lie except a little. Remember Sunnah is for the purpose of remembering a lot of famous latterly victory. So if we don't remember a lion Salah then when we remember Allah, so it's gonna try to make yourself focus on the remembrance of Allah. And we see over here that laziness with regards to Salah is a sign of newpark it's a sign of hypocrisy.

02:05:01--> 02:05:34

And, and especially delaying Salah stalling. This is also from hypocrisy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that is the prayer of the hypocrites. What it what is that he sits watching the sun until when it is between the horns of the shape lon he stands and pecks out four units of prayer meeting just as a chicken, right? It just backs on the ground, a bird just like that the hypocrite quickly performs the form of God, not remembering Allah in them but a little

02:05:35--> 02:06:20

wavering between them belonging neither to the believers nor to the disbelievers. And whoever Allah leaves astray. Never will you find for him away, or you who have believed, do not take the disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do you wish to give a law against yourselves a clear case? Meaning if your friendship with them is affecting your deen? Then you better be careful. Indeed, the hypocrites will be the lowest depths of the fire and never will you find for them a helper. Why? Why the lowest depth of the fire because their actions are lonely, a loneliness Medina taboo, what are salehoo except for those who repent, correct themselves hold fast to Allah and are

02:06:20--> 02:07:06

sincere in their religion for Allah, meaning they stopped showing off they make their worship sincere, for those will be with the believers and Allah is going to give the believers a great reward. So for conditions of dobar mentioned over here doba Islam, holding on to Allah sincerity and being with the believers. This is all part of Toba may of Allah who be either become in Shackleton, What are mentone? What would Allah do with your punishment, if you are grateful and believe meeting a lot has no need to punish you. Allah doesn't get any benefit by punishing you. What he wants from you is that you show gratitude and that usual belief, not that you become ungrateful for the

02:07:06--> 02:07:53

blessing of a man for the blessing of Islam, so that you begin to resent it, and then you begin to complain about it, and then you leave it, and then you waver. No. In Sokoto, when I went to work, and Allahu Shakeel and Allah, and Allah is Ever appreciated and knowing. So when you do something good, Allah knows about it. Allah appreciates it. So be sincere to him, stop seeking the approval of people seek the approval of Allah is is the reward that Allah gives. Not enough. It's way more than what people can offer you. And then we see over here this is the chocolate is mentioned before he man. And this shows us how important sugar is because chocolate gratitude is something that leads us

02:07:53--> 02:08:41

to more worship. And gratitude is something that strengthens our email. And this is why one of the things that we should do, especially while we're fasting is to thank Allah for the ability to worship him to thank Allah for the blessings that He has given us. instead of complaining about what we cannot do, let us start appreciating what we can do. And this is something that we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for help for we should make Dora Aloma journey look at the Canon lettershop canon that Oh Allah make me someone who is ever remembering of you and ever grateful to you. It'll be or me Allah the clicker was shook rica that Oh Allah helped me to remember you and help me to be
