Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim or be slightly slightly away acidity Emery workload iraq data melissani Yakubu Kohli along Matthew Colby was a deadly sin. He was also him at the Colby amenia open earlier mean
just number 28 sola tomo Jazeera Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. But suddenly Allah who co led me to God, Luca fiza, g ha, what a turkey in a law will La Jolla Smeralda? How will a coma in a Maha semi rhombus lead? Certainly has Allah heard the speech of the woman who argues with you, concerning her husband, and directs her complaint to Allah and Allah hears your dialogue? Indeed, Allah is hearing and seeing this verse is about Hola, La Jolla. marinha, who is whose husband pronounced Liao to her. And leha was basically, you know, when a man would say to his wife, that you are to me like the back of my mother. And this was a way of giving permanent, irrevocable divorce. So how long have you a
lot more and how when her husband said that to her, she came to the Prophet salallahu already he was send them asking if her marriage was still valid. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told her that no, it was no longer valid, because nothing specific had been revealed regarding this matter as of yet. So how long have you loved more on her? She touched the key Illa she complained to Allah, she begged and she pleaded, and I shall do a lot more on her. She said, that bless. It is the one whose hearing encompasses all things. I heard some of the words of Hola. But some of her words were not clear to me, meaning I don't know exactly what she said. But I heard some things when she
complained to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about her husband. And she was saying that O Messenger of Allah, he has consumed my youth, and I split my belly for him, meaning I had many children with him. But when I grew old, and could no longer bear children, he declared upon me, or Allah, I complained to you. And she kept complaining to Allah subhanaw taala. Until Wu brought down these verses, that Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of the woman who was arguing with you, and who was about her husband, and who was complaining to Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah heard your conversation. Indeed, Allah is hearing and seeing, if you think about it, the law
regarding we have could have been revealed without this incident, or it could have been revealed even before How about we'll do a lot more on how I experienced this. But hold on, I'll do a lot more on her was honored by becoming the cause for the revelation of this law. And we are taught the law regarding this matter. First by being reminded of the fact that Allah subhanaw taala heard this woman, I shall de la Mourinho was in the same room, and she did not hear everything that Hotel de la Mourinho was saying, but Allah subhanaw taala heard her. And this woman, she came, and she was talking, she was defending herself. She was arguing and fighting for justice, meaning she she was
not accepting the injustice that was done to her. So she spoke out because she wanted his solution. She spoke out because she wanted to save her marriage. And when she did not get that help from people, because they weren't able to offer that to her, she didn't quit over there. She pleaded to Allah subhanaw taala she complained to him zoa Jin and Allah subhanaw taala heard her. So what is the lesson? The lesson is that Allah subhanaw taala certainly hears his servants. So do not forget to complain to him. Do not forget to put your grief, your worries before him as urgent, invite his mercy by putting your weakness and your helplessness before him. Even though Allah subhanaw taala
already knows your situation. Remember that complaining to Allah does not mean saying things like why did this happen or Allah that is actually complaining about Allah. And that is something that we don't do, because we know that nothing happens without his will. And whatever he wills is based on his wisdom and knowledge. So we don't question Allah subhanaw taala his decisions because that was
imply that Allah, tada has made an error whether you are the biller, so we don't say things like that, that Oh Allah, why did this happen? And how come this happened? No complaining to Allah means putting forth your grief and your worries and your state of helplessness before him as a region. So in difficulty, complain to Allah, not about Allah. And the lesson that we get here is that the solution to our problems comes from Allah and only Allah azzawajal. So while you stand up for yourself, and you seek justice, please, please do it the right way. Don't seek justice by turning away from Allah or away from his book or away from his law or by resenting what he has revealed. No,
seek justice by turning to words Allah and one of the greatest weapons that you have, the greatest strength that you have is that you are able to call upon Allah, you are able to complain to Allah, like hola of de la Mourinho did so make Dora sometimes we see that laws regarding our particular situation are not there, or sometimes they are, sometimes they're in your favor, and other times they're not in your favor. So whatever your predicament is, however the law may have been used, or you know, used against you or to harm you or to deprive you, whatever your predicament is, please, please hash the key in Allah complained to Allah and ask him to make a way out for you. Just as he
made a way out for how little Do you have more on her, he can also make a way out for you, because he is Sameer embassy, he is ever hearing he is ever seeing he he hears your please. And he sees your condition. He He knows what you're going through. So call upon him invite his mercy. And then it is mentioned that those who pronounce Liao among you to separate from their wives, they are not consequently their mothers. Meaning just because a man says to his wife that you are my mother, meaning you are prohibited on me for physical intimacy, just like my mother is any his saying that does not make his wife, his mother. their mothers are none but those who gave birth to him. And
indeed they are saying an objectionable statement, meaning this is his sinful statement to say to your wife that you are like my mother, this is sinful, and if falsehood meaning it is wrong, it is invalid. But Indeed, Allah is our full wound over food. He is pardoning and forgiving, so he has made a way out for his servants when they make this mistake. So what is the way of Toba? How is it that a person can come out of this situation and those who pronounced Liao from their wives and then wish to go back on what they said, then there must be the freeing of a slave before they touch one another. That is what you are admonished there by and Allah is acquainted with what you do. And he
who does not find a slave than a fast for two months consecutively. And this means that these fasts have to be without a break, meaning if a person misses even one fast, then they have to start all over again, before they touch one another. And he who is unable than the feeding of 60. Poor persons, meaning of a person does not have a slave than they should fast for two months. And if a person is not able to fast, then they have to feed 60 poor people. That is for you to believe completely in Allah and His Messenger, meaning you must revive your faith. Now, you must do this as part of completing your faith. And those are the limits set by Allah and for the deniers is a
painful punishment. So we see here that pronouncing Li Han does not affect the marriage, meaning it does not cause divorce. However, it is a major sin. And this is why the man who says these words is penalized, he has to give the compensation. And this shows us that four words are also consequences, meaning there is repentance required for what we say from our mouths even. And then we learn over here that sadaqa charity and fasting for young both of these are a means of kafala as a means of expiation for the sins that we commit, because when there is a monetary fine, or when we have to practice self control through fasting, then through this process, we are learning we are learning
more self control. And a lot of times you know people have caused a lot of damage to one another especially in marriage by uncontrolled use of the tongue. So these consequences teach us that we are responsible for what we say and we must be
guard our words. In the Latina you have Dona la Juana Sula, who, indeed those people who oppose Allah and His Messenger literally they oppose alone His Messenger such as a police or people who hate, you know, for example, the Quran, they are enemies to what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed and this is why they oppose anything about Islam, meaning their life mission is to you know, spit hate about Islam and Muslims wherever possible, then such people are a beast, Allah aka Sorry, could be to there will be a based as those before them were based they will be Kubi to come at kobita Needham in cobbling him. And We have certainly sent down verses of clear evidence, and for the
disbelievers is a humiliating punishment. So we see here, that opposing the command of Allah and His Messenger, yes, this is done by those who hate Islam. But sometimes this is also done by those people who claim to be Muslim. How when they outright disobey the commands that are very clear, meaning a person finds out what they're supposed to do, but still they refuse to abide by those commands. This is a huge mistake. This is a cause of humiliation in this world. And in the Hereafter, as a lost pounds artist says that such people are koibito they will never ever be successful. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that he would jewelry the villa to
a salon. Oh, Allah Madhava Emery, that humiliation and disgrace is for those people who oppose my command. And we learned that such people will not even be allowed to enter agenda. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that all of my oma will enter Paradise except the one who refuses. So the people asked Who is that? He said men are only the 100 agenda. Women are Sani faqad Abba, that whoever obeys me will enter agenda and whoever disobeys me has in fact refused. And so such people will not enter Paradise wonder Yeah, the villa and Allah soprano Tato to warns us in the Quran. That funny I that Illa Dena, you Holly, funa and Emily, and to Saliba whom fitna tune, oh you
sleep or whom are the Abu Aleem that lead those beware, who descend from the profits order lest a fitness should strike them a tribulation should fall upon them, or painful punishment. So this verse clearly establishes the status of Hades. But we cannot say that oh, this is just the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we don't have to take them seriously. No, we must take them seriously because those who oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who disobeyed his command, then for such people is disgrace in this life, and in the next life, on the day when Allah will resurrect them all, meaning not a single person will be left behind and inform them of what
they did. soprano law, the day of judgment is the day when the deeds will be examined, records will be weighed. And Allah subhanaw taala had enumerated in our slothful level when assume Allah had enumerated all of their deeds while they forgot it. And Allah is over all things a witness. The fact is that we do things we say things and very, very quickly, we forget about them. If I were to ask you, what is it that you said, when you woke up meaning the first thing you said perhaps you won't be able to recall right away? You know, we we forget our actions, we forget our words, but just because we have forgotten them, it doesn't mean that they have been lost in thin air know what we
say what we do is recorded and look at the word, Sahil Lo, Allah has enumerated it, meaning everything that we say we do is recorded it is listed in the record of deeds. This is why people will say on the day of judgment that what is with this book that now you are the rousselot and when our Kabila can enter our saw her that it that there is nothing big or small, except that it has enumerated it. So sometimes we also neglect certain things. We don't pay much attention to them, thinking that they're not that important. But alas pounds, perhaps will question us about them. We learn in a hadith that Allah will ask a person on the day of judgment that I was sick and you did
not come to visit me. I was thirsty, you did not give me to drink, I was hungry, and you did not give me anything to eat. And the person will say how you Allah, you are the Lord of the worlds How could that happen to you? And the last point I will say that my servant was sick. My servant was hungry. My servant was thirsty, and if you had taken care of him and if you had gone to visit him, if you had fed him, if you had given him to drink, you would have found me over there. You would have found closeness to me. Meaning Why did
You leave that good deed. So this shows us that, you know, we should we should not belittle good deeds. And we should pay attention to the opportunities that Allah subhanaw taala gives us, we should not overlook them, and the actions that we do the sins that we commit the words that we say, we should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala over them, have you not considered that Allah knows what is in the heavens and what is on the earth? There is there is there is no private conversation of three, but that he is the fourth of them, meaning no three people are in a private conversation, except that Allah subhanaw taala is the fourth of them. So basically, no private
conversation is private. Really, why? Because Allah subhanaw taala is a witness to that conversation, nor are there five people but that he is the sixth of them, and no less than that, and no more except that he is with them in knowledge, wherever they are, then he will inform them of what they did on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, Allah is of all things knowing. We see that in general, whispering, you know, having private conversations all the time. This is something that is disliked. Why? Because it shows that, you know, people are trying to hide things. And when you're trying to hide things, either you are trying to exclude some people, and that is unfair, or what
you're trying to hide is not something nice, which is why you're keeping it private and secret. So why are you trying so hard to keep it secret? So in general, we see that whispering, having private conversations all the time, this is something that is disliked. And this is why we're taught that in the presence of three people, two people should not Converse privately. And if it is absolutely necessary, because you know, certain things cannot be spoken off openly, then you must take permission from the third. And if people are conversing privately, then you must respect their privacy and not sit with them without taking their permission first. So it has made clear over here
that no private conversation is actually hidden from Allah subhanaw taala. So be conscious of Allah, even in your most private, you know, conversations that you have with people who are close to you, then it is said have you not considered those who are forbidden from private conversation, because this is something that would annoy the Muslims. But still, they return to that which they were forbidden and converse among themselves about sin and aggression and disobedience to the messenger. These were the hypocrites, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade people from, you know, whispering into one another's ears, especially, you know, when someone passed by in front of
them. So the hypocrites they still continue to hold such conversations and excluding Muslims. And when they come to you, they greet you with that word by which Allah does not greet you. And these were the Jews that when they came to the Prophet sallallahu or to send them instead of saying a sin, Mr. Neko, they would say Assam or nickel, which means may you die. And I shuttled alojar now when she realized that she was really upset, so she said, Why are they como sama learner? And you know, so on and so forth, that may you die, and may you have God's curse, etc, etc. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I shall do not use harsh words. So she said, Didn't you hear
what they said? And the Prophet sallallahu ordino said them said that I responded to them, meaning I just said, Why are they the same be on you reading I responded to them, but I don't have to dirty my tongue in the process. So these people, they would come to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And they would say Salaam to him in this way. And they would say among themselves, why does Allah not punish us for what we say? Meaning if he's really a prophet, then how can we're not being punished, sufficient for them is hell, which they will enter to burn, and wretched is the destination. The fact is that when the heart is dirty, when it is filled with the filth of jealousy,
and pride, and hatred, then it surfaces through such lowly ways. This is why we must pray to Allah subhanaw taala that he or Allah cleanse my heart, Allahu muthiah he'll be mean and the fact that Oh Allah, clean my heart of any form of hypocrisy, that if there's any hypocrisy in my heart, yeah, Allah wash it away, remove it from my heart, because such feelings and and such beliefs, you know, they do come up every now and then. Yeah, you have levena Manu, or you who have believed when you Converse privately, meaning when you must hold a private conversation, and sometimes that is necessary, because everything does not need to be made public. And certain matters are actually
private between friends between facts.
Between a couple. So when you do have to converse privately, whether it is on the phone, or it is, you know, over text messages, it is in a private chat. And certain private chats are such that they're never saved, they disappear right away. Still, what should you do, do not converse about sin, meaning, don't talk about things that are sinful, that Allah subhanaw taala does not approve of, and aggression, meaning words that that are aggressive against people, or, you know, talking about things that would lead to, you know, aggression against people, and disobedience to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but converse about righteousness and piety, and fear Allah to
whom you will be gathered, meaning even in private, do not say, and do not whisper and do not type what is sinful. Do not discuss how you're going to sneakily do something wrong, do something sinful, harm another person, or, you know, do this in disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu, or the usnm. Rather, Fear Allah and fear the fact that you are going to meet him, and only then will you be able to correct your private and your public. Because you see, sometimes we're very careful about the words that we say in front of other people on a more public platform. But in our private conversations at home, sometimes, you know, our words are inappropriate. So we have to be careful
over there. Allah subhanaw taala here is he knows what we say in public. And he also knows he hears what we say in private, private conversation is only from shaitan, that he may grieve those who have believed, because what happens is that when people are not included in a certain conversation, then they feel left out. And this is certainly hurtful, but he will not harm them at all, except by permission of Allah. And Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely where Allah Allah He folia tawakoni me noon, we see that sometimes, you know, people like to show their greatness before others, by making them feel like they don't know that like that, like they don't know anything.
Sometimes people like to show their greatness before others, by making them feel like they don't know anything that you know, I know, something you don't know. They like to exclude others by pretending like everything is a secret. Or sometimes what people do is that they're talking about you, and they let you know that they're talking about you, but they're not going to tell you what they're saying about you. So this is something that's very hurtful. So at that time, remind yourself that whatever they're saying, whatever they're doing, they cannot actually harm me without the permission of Allah. Because the fact is that they don't control my life. They don't control my
life, they can whisper they can converse all they want, they can exclude me all they want, they can leave me out from whatever that they want, but they cannot deprive me from any good that Allah subhanaw taala has already decreed for me, they cannot take away from me any good that Allah Allah has given me and they cannot harm me with anything that allows Pandora has not written for me. So this so this way, you will not be sad when people talk like this when they exclude you. Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu or you who have believed, when you are told space yourselves in assemblies that make space, Allah will make space for you. Here the etiquette of sitting in a gathering is
being taught that you make space for others and Allah will make space for you, you will give to others and Alas, pannacotta will give you you honor others and alas pelotonia will honor you. So no matter where you are, whether this is in the mosque, or, or it is in a soft in a row at home in prayer, or it is at the dinner table in a parking lot on the road, when people need space, then please give them space. Sometimes children fight over such issues that you know, I want to hold the iPad only I want to hold the remote control. I want to sit here and and they don't want to share. So share this idea with them. That when you include other people, when you make space for others, when
you share what you have with others than Allah subhanaw taala he will give you what is special. So we should not be selfish and desire all good for ourselves only. No, we must also think about others. Because when we create ease for others, then Allah subhanaw taala will create ease for us because remember that the recompense is always similar to the deed. So in your so when you make space for others Allah, Allah will make space for you where in your grave He will make your grave spacious
In your heart, being a lust partner will make your heart spacious, in the world, in your life, and also in the hereafter. So, when you go to a gathering, or you know a place where people are sitting, then you can ask people to make space for you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no person should ask another person to stand up from his place, and then sit there himself, but he should simply say, make room for me. So don't ask other people to move away to get up, rather just ask them to make some space for you. And, and we have also been taught to not block the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned people from sitting in, you know, in the pathways in the
Turo cart in the roads. Why because this way, people don't have the space to move around. So make space for other people and don't occupy all that space for yourself. And when you are told, Arise, then arise, meaning if you're asked to move to create space for people that don't get offended over there, sometimes what happens is that you are, you know, sitting at the wrong place, or you are driving comfortably in someone, you know, they keep, you know, coming behind you and they keep asking you to, you know, signaling you to move so that they can get ahead of you, it cetera, et cetera. So when things like this happen, don't get offended over there. Don't take this personally,
just, you know, Arise, make space for people move to the side. Why? Because Allah will raise those who have believed among you, and those who are given knowledge by degrees. And Allah is acquainted with what you do. So remind yourself that honor is not by getting to sit in a certain place or be or by driving in front of everybody only. No, real dignity is with faith, and it is with knowledge. So if space is made for you, then thank Allah subhanaw taala for it, and when it is not made for you, for example, you ask someone to make space for you and they say sorry, or you are asked to move, then respond as a believer would respond. Meaning make that move from there, and it and increase in
your dignity before Allah subhanaw taala respond in a way that a knowledgeable person would and increase in your honor before Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when one of you goes to a gathering and space is made for him, then he should sit there, meaning you should not reject it, for it is something that Allah has honored him with. And if space is not made for him, then he should look where there is space, and should sit there being you should not get offended over there and should not, you know, take this personally, that people are being so rude. No, remind yourself that real dignity is with faith and with knowledge. So act with knowledge and
act as a believer would in the situation. Or you who have believed when you wish to privately consult the messenger present before your consultation, a charity that is better for you and pure. But if you find not the means that Indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. The thing is that everybody would want to have private time with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he had greater responsibilities. So this ayah was revealed that if you want to speak to him one on one, then you must give back to the community, you must give charity first. And the purpose over here was to teach people and later on this was abrogated, and I needed a lot more and who was the only one
who acted upon this verse? Have you feared to present before your consultation charities, then what do you do not and Allah has forgiven you, because this was abrogated, then at least established prayer and gives a cat and obey Allah and His messenger. And Allah is acquainted with what you do. Have you not considered those who make allies of people with whom Allah has become angry? These were the hypocrites. They are neither of you nor of them, meaning they're neither loyal to you, nor are they loyal to those that they hang out with, and they swear to untruth, while they know that they are lying. Allah has prepared for them a severe punishment. Indeed, it was evil that they were
doing, they took their false oath as a cover. So they averted people from the way of Allah and for them is a humiliating punishment. Never will their wealth or their children, avail them against Allah at all. Those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide therein eternally. On the day, Allah will resurrect them all and they will swear to him as they swear to you, and think that they're standing on something. They think that their lives will work everywhere. unquestionably. It is they who are the liars shavon has overcome them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah soprano de la hoffler. You see, love LA is from shaitan Hebrew
snus forgetting is something natural. But when a person becomes heedless, heedless of the vicar of Allah, then then behind this as a person's own fault, so we should be careful. Those are the party of shape on unquestionably the party of shaitan they will be the losers, indeed, the ones who oppose Allah and His Messenger, those will be among the most humbled oola ecofin as a lien Khattab, Allahu Allah has written, I will surely overcome, I and my messengers meeting such people will be defeated for sure, Indeed, Allah is powerful and Exalted in Might. So those people who oppose a lion is messenger, they will never ever succeed, you will not find a people who believe in Allah and the
Last Day having affection for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers, or their sons or their brothers or their kindred, meaning even if they were their own family. So when so such people remember they're not worthy of friendship, so do not be in their company. Meaning, even if it's your own closest family members, who are mocking Allah, his religion, His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or they show contempt to the book of Allah, to Allah or to His Messenger, then you must make your loyalties clear. This doesn't mean that you become rude to your family, or to the people that you're around, that you become harsh with them. No, but you must
speak out over there. And you must make your loyalties clear and you must make it very clear that you know what I don't accept this. Those meaning people who are loyal to Allah at such a time, Allah has decreed within their hearts faith, meaning this is a sign of a man and supported them with spirit from him. And we will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally, Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with him. Those are the party of Allah, unquestionably the party of Allah, they are the successful. So we see here that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with the people whose concern is to please Him. So if we make our ultimate goal to please
Allah subhanaw taala only then we can be successful. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever seeks Allah is pleasure by the people's rather than Allah will suffice him from the people, because sometimes you are seeking to please Allah, but certain individuals, they're not happy with what you're doing. They get annoyed by the fact that you're fasting that you're reciting the Quran, then still be firm in trying to pursue the approval of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah will protect you, he will be enough for you. And the person who speaks and the person who seeks the people's pleasure by seeking Allah's wrath, meaning their ultimate goal is to please Allah to please
people. And in the process, they end up disobeying Allah and making Allah angry that Allah will entrust such a person to the people. And guess what people will never be be happy with them. They will accept one thing and then tomorrow they will demand something else, and then the next day they will demand something else. So don't destroy yourself and ruin yourself in seeking the approval of people suited to Heschel. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Subhanallah Hema is somehow working with murfin aldub. Well, who will Aziz and Hakeem
whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth exalts Allah, and he is the Exalted in Might, the Wise, everything in the sky is and everything in the earth is praising and glorifying the law. So what should we do? We should also busy ourselves in that the speed of Allah. Remember, when you see this B when you say soprano law, then the words of the could soprano law and hamdulillah these words revolve around the throne of a law, and they make a sound like the buzzing of the bees. And what happens is that they're constantly making mention of you basically, meaning when you make Vicar of a law, as long as you're making the kind of Allah you are being mentioned, around the
throne of Allah. So would you not want that you are mentioned continuously in the Presence of Allah. So glorify Allah praise Allah. Remember, these are the best words that a person can utter. They are the most beloved words to Allah, soprano la Alhambra, De La La Ilaha, Illa, Allah Allahu Akbar, and the words of the speech are very heavy in the skills and they are permanent, everlasting good deeds, saying Subhana Allah is a charity when the servant says Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala answers he says seductor you have spoken the truth. When you say soprano la hiner Alimi will be humble.
He then a day palm tree is planted for you in Jenna, saying Subhana Allah 100 times before the sunrises and before the sunsets. This is better than owning 100 camels and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say Subhana Allah soprano la soprano la be until sleep overcame him. So we should also make this habit.
It is he who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture from their homes at the first gathering, you did not think they would leave. And they thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah, but the decree of Allah came upon them from where they had not expected, and he cast terror into their hearts. So they destroyed their houses by their own hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, oh people a vision. We see that in Medina, a Jewish tribe known as Buddha lead us to live and they have made a treaty with the Muslims. But instead of abiding by that treaty, they actually attempted to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So
when their treachery was exposed, they locked themselves up in their fortresses thinking that they could survive. But when did anyone ever survive by relying on other than Allah? When did anyone survive by opposing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam what happened is that the Muslims lays lay a siege on them. And eventually, the Jews had to surrender. But now they were not allowed to live in Medina anymore. They had to leave Medina and they were allowed to take with them whatever that they wanted. So they started taking apart even their doors and their window frames, destroying their homes, basically with their own hands, empty in their own homes. So Allah subhanaw
taala says, take lesson or people What lesson that homes do not last, meaning your house cannot protect you, it will not survive when Allah and His Messenger are disobeyed. When a person leaves the deen, they end up losing both Deen and dunya and is left with nothing. So take a lesson. And if not, that Allah had decreed for them evacuation, he would have punished them in this world. And for them in the Hereafter is the punishment of the Fire. That is because they opposed Allah and His messenger. And whoever opposes Allah, then Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty, whatever you have cut down of their palm trees are left standing on their trunks. It was by permission of Allah, and so he
would disgrace the defiantly disobedient. So this happened during the siege, that some palm trees had to be chopped down in order to weaken the spirits of the banana lead. And also in order to launch an assault. Yes, it is wrong to cut trees. But it is more important to stop the oppressors and bring them to justice. It is important to bring them to justice. So Allah subhanaw taala defends the believers over here, and what Allah restored a property to his messenger from them, you did not spur for it in an expedition any horses or camels, but Allah gives us messengers power over whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. So you see, when the Jews left Medina, their
properties, their lands, their fortresses, were still in Medina, they couldn't take those with them. So now all of that fell in the hands of the Muslims. But this was a different kind of war booty. And this is called fate. And this is different because no battle was fought, it was only a siege and the enemy surrendered. So the distribution would be different from vanilla. And the distribution was such that the participants did not have any share. But all of it was left to the discretion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it is made clear that what Allah restore to his messenger from the people of the towns, it is for Allah and for the messenger, and for his near relatives and
orphans and this trended traveler, so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from among you, meaning this kind of gain will not just go to those who participated in the expedition. Rather, it will be left to the leader to decide how to distribute among the people, because wealth must circulate in the society, just as blood should circulate in a body, if it gets congested in a certain place. If it begins to clot in a certain place, then that will then that will be lethal for the community. And whatever the messenger has given you, take it and whatever he has forbidden you refrain from it and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty. Again, we are
reminded that we must take the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very, very seriously, whatever that he gives us. Whether it is a command or a prohibition, we must abide. We must abide. We must not disobey the messenger. sallallahu alayhi wasallam Think about it. The
punishment for disobeying parents than what do you think? Will there not be consequences for disobeying the profits of the law? Who
did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam teach things in order that his teachings are rejected and ignored? No. So we must not be little Hadees we must not pretend like the words and teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do not exist. Some people want to limit Islam to only what the Koran says. And this is, and this is very, very unfair, this is wrong, disregarding the teachings of the prophets of Allah who were to send them the treasure of you know, his words that are preserved in the books of Hadees. This is unfair, and this is in fact disobeying Allah subhanaw taala because Allah is the one who has commanded us to follow him sallallahu already he was setting them. And when
Allah revealed his religion, on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he trusted his messenger. And earlier we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not speak from his own desire. So his words are to be taken as law. They're not to be belittled and ignored. So this war booty this fate, this is for who this is for the poor immigrants who were expelled from their homes and their properties, meaning them Oh Ha Joon, seeking bounty from Allah and His approval, and supporting Allah and His messenger. So there is a share for them in this, those are the truthful because they made real sacrifices for the religion of Allah. And also for those who were settled in
Medina, and adopted the faith before them. These are the unsought and what are the great qualities of the install a last parameter that praises them, they love those who immigrated to them and find not any want in their chest of what the immigrants were given. So Panama A lot of times, you know, when we have that scarcity mindset, what happens is that if someone you know comes and they have to share what they have, we feel very uncomfortable. We feel like oh, this is not fair. But the unsolved had no problem sharing their properties and their city, their homes with them, Ohio Jihoon. And even times when mohajir own were given something, the unsought did not feel bad, but give them
preference over themselves, even though they are in provision, even though they themselves would be in need at times. Still, they would give preference to the Mahajan rune, and whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul. It is those who will be the successful Allahu Akbar, this ayah was revealed regarding a certain companion of wood I don't know a lot more I have reported that once a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said O Allah's Messenger, I am suffering from fatigue and hunger. I am tired and I am hungry. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent somebody to his wives to get something to eat, but the person came back with nothing. Why? Because
there is nothing in any of the houses of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked his companions, that is there anybody who can entertain this man tonight, so that Allah will be merciful to him, and I'm sorry man got up. And he said, I will take him or last messenger. So this man is this unsavoury man went home. And he asked his wife, and he said to her, that this is the guest of Allah's Messenger. So do not keep anything away from him, meaning be generous with him, give him food. So she said, By Allah, I have nothing but the children's food. So he said, when the children asked you for dinner, put them to bed and put out the
lights, and we will take our meals later. So she did so. And basically what happened is that they served the food to the guest, and in the darkness, they just pretended to eat. They weren't actually eating. So even though they themselves were hungry, they had not eaten dinner, their children went to sleep hungry, they still gave preference to the guest of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the morning, then Saudi men went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah was pleased with with so and so and his wife, or he said that a lust primatologist smiled at them. Why? Because they gave preference to others over
themselves, even though they were in need. Allahu Akbar, why, why were they able to give preference to others, because they didn't have any show in the heart and show is a combination of greed and selfishness, that a person wants all the good for themselves, and they're too stingy to give. They want they're greedy for more and they're stingy to share. So extreme selfishness, and this is really a disease. It is a disease. And we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure our hearts of it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever protects his wealth from spending it and he mentioned some other things also, meaning a person does not like to spend their wealth. They don't
want to share anything.
These days, perhaps we're experiencing that, that these are some of the best days and nights to spend in the way of a law, but we feel a little hesitant. So if a person feels like that they should make the conditions of how the law will handle it in a way that either in the law will cover, meaning this will expand your heart because this will allow you to rely upon Allah subhanaw taala. And when you feel stingy, then oppose your stinginess, because the because of the destructive things is showhome matar meaning stinginess that is obeyed, so don't obey it, that feeling may be there, but don't obey it. And then we see that the best charity is actually to give at a time when you're
feeling greedy, meaning when you want good things for yourself. And these days, perhaps you know, you're just waiting for the time when the lockdown will be over so that you can go shopping and you can, you know, perhaps travel or perhaps you know, he this coming so that you can spend on yourself, but you know, you are expecting more good for yourself. This is really the best time to give charity. This is the best time to give charity. And the way you cure stinginess is that you keep giving you keep spending, even if it's just a little bit and of course you ask Allah subhanaw taala to heal you. You say a lahoma in a row the becoming a bull, that Oh Allah, I seek your protection
from stinginess that you save me. You help me against it. And there is a share for those who came after them meaning the Muslims who come after the Assad and the Maha Joon sake or benefit Lana Wali, when in alladhina sobre una de man while at the Gylfi kulu Bina Lila Lila Nina Amano, or abana in Nakuru for Rahim, they say Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith, and put not in our hearts any resentment toward those who have believed our Lord, indeed, you are kind and merciful. So this is a dog that we should also make, as is the heart, even at the time of Sir Who's that Oh Allah, you forgive us and the rest of the believers, you see, sometimes what happens is that
people ask you to make dua for them. And you you cannot even remember, you know, Who asked you and what door Are you should make for them. So this is a very beautiful door that we have been taught that Oh our Lord, forgive us and forgive our brothers who have believed even though they believe before us, you you forgive them. And remember that making the raw for believers This is a prophetic quality. Any Ibrahim Ray said I made the offer the believers, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make the offer the oma so we should also make girl for one another. And when you make the offer one another, than an angel is appointed to make the same girl for you. Allahu Akbar. Have
you ever considered those who practice hypocrisy, saying to their brothers, who have disbelieved among the People of the Scripture, meaning these were people who pretended to be Muslim, but then they sided with the Jews, that if you are expelled, we will surely leave with you. And we will not obey you in return. And we will not obey in regard to you anyone ever. And if you are fought, we will surely aid you. But Allah testifies that they are liars. So the hypocrites they would basically side with the Jews. And they would say to them, that you know what, if the Muslims come to fight you, then we're going to defend you. And we're not going to, you know, let anybody harm you. So they
would make all of these false promises to assure them of their friendship, and their, you know, support. But the fact is, that the person who is not sincere to Allah, a person who is not loyal to Allah than such a person is loyal to nobody at all. How we see a last parameter that clarifies that if they're expelled, they will not leave with them. And really, the hypocrites did not leave Medina with the Jews when the Jews were expelled. And if they're fought, they will not add them. You see, what happened was that initially, they were given 10 days to leave after they violated the treaty. They were given 10 days that pack up and leave, but are the loving obey the chief hypocrite, he went
to them, and he said, I've got you covered. Don't go at all stay right here. And if the Muslims fight you, I've got people who will come and defend you. And so what happened, the Muslims laid siege, and then the hypocrites never showed up. They never showed up and eventually the who'd had to surrender and they had to leave. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions here that if they are fought, they will not aid them, and even if they should aid them, they will surely turn their backs then thereafter, they will not be aided. This is hypocrisy, giving false hopes, making false promises. Remember that a hypocrite is not sincere to himself, a hypocrite deceives himself actually lies to
himself and this is why his loyalty is for nobody. You will
leavers are more fearful within their chests than Allah. That is because there are people who do not understand. It is a sign of a person's intelligence that they fear Allah. And when a person does not fear a lot, and fears people more than that is a sign of their unintelligence other foolishness. They will not fight you all except within fortified cities or from behind walls. Their violence among themselves is severe. You think they're together, but their chests are diverse. That is because there are people, but their hearts are diverse. That is because there are people who do not use reason. So here the Jews are being mentioned that apparently it seemed like they were very
united. But Allah subhanaw taala mentions that, in fact, their hearts are divided. They appear united, but in fact, they are united. And that is because there are people who do not use reason. You see sensible people, they have differences, but they don't become divided over those differences. They don't fight over petty issues. They don't take such issues to heart. Of course, he said that the root cause of every ill is when people are apparently united, they're apparently together, but their hearts are filled with hatred and division. And the reason behind why people do not receive the help of a law meeting, this is a reason why people are deprived of the help of
Allah. And because of this, their enemy prevails over them. So we see that a lot of problems actually stemmed from here, that when families friends, co workers, they appear to be together on the face of that Yeah, yeah, Mashallah, you did a great job, you know, I'm here, if you want my help, but then as soon as one person is missing, then they go and lay the entire blame on them. So panela when people cut each other off like this, when they entertain hatred for one another, like this, they lose the help of Allah. You know, you can have your differences with people, you can have your faults, perhaps you can even see the faults and other people, but the way to mend things is not
by blaming and accusing. No, it is by, by communication, by solving the problem. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not sever relationships, do not sever relations of kinship, do not bear enmity against one another, do not bear aversion against one another, and do not feel envy against one another. Do not do that, and live as fellow brothers as Allah has commanded you. And we were also warned by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that beware of hatred, it strips you of your religion, meaning it will destroy your religion. Theirs is like the example of those shortly before them, they tasted the bad consequence of their affair, and they will and they will have a
painful punishment. So we see that this was not the first time that the Jews of Medina were expelled from Medina. Any there was examples before them also, where people oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they did not survive. The hypocrites are like the example of Shea pawn when he says to men disbelieve, but when he disbelieves shavon says, indeed I am dissociated from you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds such a liar, he did not he doesn't actually fear Allah. But he says that as an excuse, meaning he makes a person disobey Allah, but then later on, he ditches that person. So the outcome for both of them is that they will be in the fire abiding eternally
they're in and that is the recompense of the wrongdoers. So we see that the hypocrites get give false hopes to the to the banana lead. And when they listen to the hypocrites, they only suffered. Some people are like that they're satanic, they get others into problems. So be cautious. No matter what a person is tempting you with when they tell you to do something wrong for their sake, then resist do not listen to them because they will never ever come to defend you. Yeah, uh, you Hello de la Manu. All you who have believed it the cola fear Allah was not so mad at The Motley hood and let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow. Every person should see what it is that they
are sending ahead for their next chapter for what is to come after death and fear Allah again this has mentioned Indeed Allah is acquainted with what you do. Each person needs to reflect over their condition over their actions. That what am I doing right now? What have I done in my past and what am I doing right now? What is it that I am sending forward for my
last panel tada tells us in the Quran, yeah, a U haul in sand in naka de Haan a lot of bigger content for moolah, p you are going towards Allah subhanaw taala. You are going to meet him
So this meeting is inevitable, so prepare for it. Don't live in this world, as if you're going to live here forever, no death is coming. And the most wisest of people, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, is the one who remembers death the most, and is best in preparing for it. Such people are the what are the wisest, they are a key SMS, they're the most intelligent, and the most wisest of people. So remember that when we die, we are going to be asked about what we did with our lives, what kind of actions we committed, how we earned our wealth, and how we spent it, right, where we spent our youth, what we learned and what we did with our knowledge, so prepare for
tomorrow, prepare for the for your future, and how do you prepare for your future, not just by thinking about it, but by doing those deeds which will benefit you in the future. So we learned in a Hardee's that when a person is laid in their grave, and you know, when people walk away, they hear the footsteps of people, and if this person is a believer, than his Salah, comes to his head to defend him, his fasting comes to his bright side, his the cat comes to his left side, and has other good deeds, such as his charity, his you know, voluntary prayer, and his commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong, and his good treatment of people, etc, than all of these good deeds
around him. They come to the side of his feet, and they protect him from the punishment of the grave. So while tons of nevsun malerkotla maclellan we prepare for our evening what we're going to eat for if thought, isn't it, we prepare for what we're going to eat tomorrow for suhu we prepare for the next week, we prepare for the next month, we get groceries in advance, we stock up in our homes, as if there's going to be no more food available in the world. So Pamela, but we must prepare for the hereafter because that next chapter of our lives is coming very soon. So fear Allah and prepare, don't delay. What after kuno can lead in and so law and be not like those who forgot Allah
for answer whom and fusa home so he made them forget themselves. Allah ecomo fasea Khun those are the defiantly disobedient when a person forgets Allah. When a person forgets to remember Allah, they forget their duty towards Allah. So they don't remember him. They don't make Vicar. They don't pray. They don't recite Quran. They don't have Taqwa of Allah, they live life as if there is no God, then such a person actually suffers themselves. Why? Because they forget higher objectives in life. They don't prepare for their meeting with Allah anymore. So they're basically selling themselves short. They're basically neglecting themselves. Think about it, you have the potential to earn to enjoy not
just in this life, but to enjoy good things forever and for always, because Jenna is Holly Dena Fie her Aveda, right abiding there and eternally. But when a person forgets Allah, what are they doing? They're depriving themselves of that eternity. They are losing out. They're, they're missing out on that eternity. So forgetting Allah is basically forgetting oneself. And when a person forgets Allah, they basically forget their own reality, because now they fail to see their deficiencies. They fail to recognize their faults and their wrongs. They fail to see the good opportunities that allow us primatologist giving them they fail to make use of their time and their life. They fail to improve,
they fail to do good things. They fail to leave sins, so they fail to reach their full potential. So don't be like those people. Such people are fast sukoon they are defiantly disobedient, they keep falling into sin. We learn in a hadith that almost pannacotta says that all child of Adam devote yourself to my worship and what does that mean? Remember me and when you will do that. I will fill your chest with riches and alleviate your poverty. And if you do not do that, then I will fill your hands with problems and not alleviate your your poverty. Meaning you will continue to be poor and needy your needs will never go away. But when you will make time to worship Allah subhanaw taala
then Allah subhanaw taala will take care of your needs. But it is so sad that we neglect the nature of Allah for what for ourselves. We think that if we cut down in our Salah, we don't recite Quran, we don't make Vicar perhaps we will be able to attend to our needs, but what happens our needs never get fulfilled then your source of fulfillment is who Allah supply
tarla so give Allah His right and Allah subhanaw taala will give you what you need he will fulfill you last week as habanero he was horrible agenda not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of Paradise you see in this life, you know, you see people who are Mashallah studying for years, and then you know, they become doctors, and they become engineers, and you know, whenever they get a great job, and they're making so much money, so you compare yourself to them, and you're like, oh, okay, they became a doctor. I didn't Well, alright, nevermind. Right, good for them. Alhamdulillah. And you know what, in this world, you can survive like that, that people reach levels
that you don't reach, they make money more than you do. Right? And that is fine. That's okay. But in the Hereafter, people who make it to Jenna and people who make it to hell, big, they're not the same. This is not the same, there's a huge difference. What is the difference is horrible. Generally, you will find a zone, the companions of Paradise are the attainers of success, which means that those who end up in hell are who they are losers. So there's a huge difference. So don't settle for less. Don't settle for less in this world. It's okay to settle for less if that's what you want. But when it comes to the matters of the Hereafter, do not settle for less low and Zanna
Haddon or Anna, Elijah Berlin. If we had sent down the score on upon a mountain, you would, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart, breaking from the fear of Allah and these examples we present to the people that perhaps they will give thought, so we are invited over here to reflect over the Quran. That could certainly has an impact on a person. Why because of the whole arm can break a mountain, surely it can break you, it can affect you, so you don't have any excuse. If you feel lazy. If you feel like your heart has become your heart has become very hard. Then recite the Quran because the Quran can break a mountain, it can also break the ego and the pride which is in
your heart. You know the fixed patterns that you have become so used to those habits the Quran can break them. If you reflect upon the Quran. If you recite the Quran and you extract benefit from it, and then in sha Allah, you will you will become a better person because the Quran will not just break you and ruin you, it will also rebuild you it will make you better than before. So reflect upon the Quran and benefit from it.

Well whether Aziz of Hakeem and he is the Exalted in Might the wise, this is the only place in the Koran where so many names of Allah subhanaw taala are mentioned together.
Remember, that believing in the names of Allah is part of believing in Allah is part of worshiping Allah, which I had said about the IOM, Dr. Jenna will insert into Dr. Boone that I have not created jinn and men except that they worship me. He's
This means except that they should know me, meaning we must know Allah through his names and his attributes, if we are to worship him properly, this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever learns minimum 99 Names of Allah Manasa ha, the whole agenda that Allah has 99 names and whoever, whoever learns them will enter agenda and inshallah after Ramadan, every Saturday we will be doing our names of Allah class. So you are welcome to join that class inshallah so that we can learn the names of Allah and reflect on their meanings so that we can understand we can know who our Lord is, and we can worship Him in the best way that we can sooner Tony Montana Bismillah al
Rahman al Rahim,
all you who have believed, do not take my enemies and your enemies as allies, extending to them affection, while they have disbelieved in what came to you of the truth, having driven out the prophet and yourselves, only because you believe in Allah your Lord, if you have come out for Jihad and my cause, and seeking means to my approval, take them not as friends, you can find to them affection, but I am most knowing of what you have concealed and what you have declared. And whoever does it among you has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way, we see that after the Treaty of her they be very soon the machine violated that treaty by helping and financing their allies
against the allies of the Muslims. So the Prophet sallallaahu word Islam demanded compensation and termination of their alliances, or else they should consider the treaty to be finished. The machine did not comply until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prepared to launch an offensive in order to take over mcca. But this was meant to be a secret. Why to avoid any resistance on the part of the people of Makkah. Why so that there will be no bloodshed in that land. But one companion, how can even be built on? What he did is that he sent a letter secretly to the people of Makkah, with this information, why in order to do a favor to them, so that in exchange, they would protect his
family, who were still in Makkah, he did this while knowing that Allah will certainly grant victory to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but he just wanted to ensure the safety of his family, but this was giving preference to one's own personal benefit over the benefit of their religion. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed these verses, we see that the letter never made it to Makkah, it was intercepted. And these verses were revealed that all believers, what is the standard of your friendship of your love? Who is it that you should be befriending? Who is it that you should be opposing? What is it that you are doing? If they gain dominance over you, meaning your enemy, they
would be to you as enemies and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they wish you would disbelieve, you're trying to do them a favor, they'll never ever reciprocate. You are doing this in defense of your family. Well, never will your relatives or your children benefit you the Day of Resurrection, He will judge between you and Allah of what you do is seeing. So remember the family because of whom we disobey Allah, because of whom sometimes we earn unlawful wealth, and we do things that are impermissible. Sometimes people will, you know, take bribes or they will, you know, deal with interest etc. Why, for the sake of their children, this is not going to help us at
all these children will never help no relative will ever help. Remember, there is no disobedience to the Creator, by obeying the creation, meaning we should not be obeying the creation and by that disobey the Creator. This is not correct. So, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would call each of his relatives by name. And he said, he said to them, Take whatever you want from me today, because I will not be able to help you tomorrow. And remember, even the prophets of Allah will not be able to help their families on the Day of Judgment. So we have to do our part of who would I don't know the law, Morgan reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that a person will meet his father on the Day of Judgment, and he will say, Oh, my father, what kind of a son was I? So his father will say, you were an excellent son. So the sun will say, will you obey me today? Will you listen to me today? And the father will say yes, so the son will say, just hold on to me and follow me. And like this, they will go towards the great gathering. And then eventually, that son will be allowed to enter Paradise. And so when he will be entering paradise, he will say, Oh, my Lord, my father as well, because it is your promise that you will not humiliate me on the day
judgment and we can see that this is Ibrahim alayhis salam. So Allah subhanaw taala will cause his father to be transformed into something else. And so he will fall into hell like that. And Allah subhanaw taala will say that oh my slave is that really your father and Abraham are hosted, I will say by a lot by Your Honor, by your honor my lord, this is not my father. So, our relationships will not benefit us on the Day of Judgment. If we do not believe and do good ourselves. If we do not stay away from sin ourselves, we are responsible for ourselves, there has already been for you an excellent pattern in Ibrahim and those with him. When they said to their people, indeed we are
dissociated from you, and from whatever you worship other than Allah, we have denied you. And there has appeared between us and you animosity and hatred forever, until you believe in Allah alone. Except for the saying of Ibrahim to his father, I will surely ask forgiveness for you because he had promised him but I have not power to do for you anything against Allah, our Lord, upon you, we have relied and to you we have returned and to you is the destination. Our Lord, make us not objects of torment for the disbelievers. And forgive us our Lord. Indeed, it is you who is the Exalted in Might the wise, there has certainly been for you in them and excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in
Allah in the last day and whoever turns away, then Indeed, Allah is the free of need the praise worthy, perhaps Allah will put between you and those to whom you have been enemies among them affection because hearts can change, and Allah is competent, and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly alone Lee forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion. So don't be naive. he forbids that you make allies of
them, and whoever makes allies of them than it is those who are the wrongdoers. So we see that there are three types of people basically, the first is the believers, meaning, meaning any person who believes that we should love them for the sake of Allah, whether they are white, black, whatever race, whatever ethnicity, whatever social status, we love them for the fact that they believe in Allah subhanaw taala. Secondly, there are disbelievers who oppose you who hate you. So what do you do, you don't like them either, and you don't be naive, don't be deceived by them, meaning you must be cautious and careful and defend yourself from them. And then thirdly, there are those non Muslims
who live in peace with you, they don't bother you, they don't oppose you. So you should also be likewise with them and waging war against them for no reason is something foolish to do. Because especially when they have you know, cooperated with you sheltered you not expelled you, then you should be fair with them, you should return you should return their favor to them. Or you will have believed when the believing women come to you as immigrants because after the Treaty of Abia, you know, a lot of women started migrating to Medina. So it is said examine them, meaning first check if they have really come for the sake of Islam or is it that they're just escaping their marriage? Or
or is it some other objective? test them? Allah is most knowing as to their faith, meaning you just see be apparent Allah is the judge of what is in the hearts. And if you know them to be believers, then do not return them to the disbelievers. Why, because they're not lawful for them, nor are they lawful for them. So do not send them but give the disbelievers what they have spent meaning returned the money that they have brought from Makkah.
And there is no blame upon you if you marry them, when you have given when you have given them their due compensation and hold not to marriage bonds with disbelieving women, but ask for what you have spent and let them ask for what they have spent. That is the judgment of Allah, He judges between you and Allah is Knowing and wise, and if you have lost and if you have lost any of your wives to the disbelievers, meaning there is a woman who doesn't believe and she goes and she takes the money of the Muslims and you subsequently obtain something then give those who whose wives have gone the equivalent of what they had spent and fear Allah in whom you are believers. So we see that the
Treaty of Abia stipulated that no man who leaves McCann goes to Medina should be allowed to stay in Medina He must be returned. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the benefit of the letter of the law, by making by allowing the women to stay because the word women was not mentioned in the Treaty of her they be all profit
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the believing women come to you, pledging to you that they will not associate anything with Allah, nor will they steal, nor will they commit unlawful sexual intercourse, nor will they kill their children, nor will they bring forth a slander they have invented between their arms and legs, nor will they disobey you in what is right. Then accept their pledge and ask forgiveness for them of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take the pledge of allegiance from people who came to Medina, meaning people would promise him In the name of Allah, that they would do such and
such things and they would refrain from certain other things, and remember them when the prophets of Allah who are using him to borrow from the women, this would always be verbal, he would never put his hand in the hand of another woman, unless she was maharam or you have believed, do not make allies over people with whom Allah has become angry, they have despaired of reward in the Hereafter, just as the disbelievers have despaired of meeting the inhabitants of the graves. So the standard of love and friendship is given over here because you see friends influence your choices also. So if you befriend and sympathize with with the people who oppose your deen, you will become like them.
Similar to SFX Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, saheli lahemaa smrp one marfil whatever isn't the heavens and whatever is on the earth exalts Allah, and he is the Exalted in Might the wives, so let us do this be here also say Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah You see, a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said he also Allah, I am not able to learn anything of the Quran. And this happens with some people, they they're unable to because of their memory loss or whatever reason, maybe, you know, you know, they're trying or they don't find the opportunity. Or, for example, a woman is menstruating and she doesn't feel comfortable reciting the Quran, even
though there is nothing wrong with it, but people have their reservations. So, in that case, he this man asked the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam that What should I say? What should I say? I'm not able to recite the Quran. So what should I say? He said, says Subhana Allah will handle de la la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar WHAT THE HELL NO, NO quwata illa Allah. So anytime you're not able to recite the Quran, and you feel that you're missing out, then make the spear sis of Panama because these are words that are adequate in place of the Quran. Yeah, you have Latina or Manu, or you have believed Lima, taco Luna malata falloon? Why do you say what you do not do? Meaning? Why is it that
your words contradict your actions? And why is it that you don't practice yourself what you preach? This is a severe reprimand to all believers, and every person needs to think about themselves, that are there times when I advise other people to do good, and I don't do those things myself. Because this is something that Allah subhanaw taala detests. Great is hatred in the sight of Allah, that you say what you do not do. Meaning when you when you preach something, you must practice it yourself also, because this is a sign, meaning people who don't practice what they preach, this is a sign that they're not worthy of being the heirs of the prophets, because the Prophet sallallaahu, Arizona
mentioned for hotter from embargoing in California, that there came after the righteous a, an unworthy generation, and who were they they would, they would preach what they would not practice themselves. So this is something that is severely disliked by Allah azza wa jal, we see that when a person behaves like this, then there is severe punishment in the hereafter. Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that he was showing people whose lips were being cut with scissors of fire. And when he asked, Who are these people and why is this happening? He was told that these are people who do what they who do who who's who do different to what they say,
meaning people whose whose words contradict their own actions, meaning they go on telling people to do good things, but they never do good themselves. In another heavies, we learned that a man will be brought on the day of judgment and he will be thrown in the fire of hell. And his intestines will come out and he'll and he will go around Hellfire like a donkey goes around a millstone stuff it'll like any you'll be going round and round and Hellfire
His and trails his intestines right behind him.
So the people of the fire will gather around him and they will say also and so what is wrong with you? Didn't you used to order us to do good deeds? Didn't you used to forbid us to do bad deeds? So he will reply, yes, I used to order you to do good deeds, but I did not do them myself. And I used to forbid you to do bad deeds, yet I used to do them myself. So it is very important that as we share, you know, good knowledge with other people. Make sure that we, you know, you practice as well, don't just focus on sharing on forwarding good things. And sometimes what happens is that, you know, we receive a, you know, a good video, a good post, we're so quick to share, before even
listening to it ourselves, before even putting into practice what that post says ourselves, so don't just focus on preaching, preaching, sharing, sharing. Also think about your own personal share, what is it that you are taking from it? Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in his cars in a row, as though they are a single structure joined firmly. So here we learn two very important things. One thing that Allah subhanaw taala does not like people to do. And the other is what allows pantile likes people to do, what Allah subhanaw taala does not like people to do is that people advise others and forget themselves. And what Allah Allah likes for people to do is that they stand
together, they come in rows, they join together in the cause of a loss of primal tardo. They unite together, and they and they are even stronger together this way. So we see that even when we are talking to children, we should be honest, we should not make false promises. We don't in our heads that are the Lebensraum and he said that my mother called me one day, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam was sitting in our house, and she said, Come here, and I will give you something. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked her, What did you intend to give him? So she replied that I intended to give him some dates. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that if you were not to give him anything, a lie would be recorded against you. So we have to be careful. You know, sometimes big promises are made before marriage, right? Big promises are made before someone is hired, and, or before someone agrees to do a certain job. And then what happens once the work begins, those promises are not fulfilled. So we must be true to our word, we must fulfill our commitments. And if we're not able to fulfill that, then let that be clear. Let that be clear, communicate that with others, so that people don't suffer because of us. And then we see that self is especially praised over here, you know, people who are working together working hard in a
very disciplined, organized and United Way. This is what Allah subhanaw taala loves. We see that angels form rows, and even birds, you know, they're mentioned in the Quran that they form rows. And on the Day of Judgment, also people will be in rows. In fact, the people of gender will enter Paradise as rows together. So Allah subhanaw taala likes this. And mentioned when Musa said to his people, oh my people, why do you harm me? Why do you bother me with your excessive questioning and your refusal to obey your hurtful words? While you are certain? Well, you certainly know that I am the messenger of Allah to you, and when they deviated Allah cause their hearts to deviate to Allah
cause their hearts to deviate, they chose deviation. So they were sent in the path of deviation and Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people. Remember our last panel tada does not wrong anybody and mentioned when he said the son of money and said, Oh children of Israel, he, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you, confirming what came before me of the total, and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmed Allahu Akbar, even he even mentioned to his people with the name of the final messenger was going to be an Imam is someone who is praised Mohammed is also someone who is praised, but when he came to them with clear evidences, they said
this is obvious magic, and who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah untruth while he is being invited to Islam, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouth, but Allah will perfect his light. Although the disbelievers dislike it. Think about it. If there is a fire, can you ever put it out by blowing it with your mouth? No. If anything, blowing a fire only causes it to increase and spread.
So there are people who want to extinguish the light of Islam with their mouth meaning with what they say, what their lies with their insults with their misrepresentation with their distortion of the truth, but they will never be successful. In fact, people who attack Islam, at times ended up becoming the very means of spreading Islam. So proud Allah, it is he who sent His messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to manifest it over all religion, although those who associate others with Allah dislike it, will you who have believed? Shall I guide you to a transaction? Do you want to know of a business a deal that will save you from a painful punishment? What is it would you
like to know, an investment that you can make a trade a bargain that you can make, because of which it will be saved from hell for painful punishment? To me, noona Bella, he was sorry, he, it is that you believe in Allah and His messenger and strive in the cause of Allah, with your wealth and your lives that is best for you, if you should know, again, we are being reminded of spending in the way of Allah. And we see that when a person spends for the cause of a law for the religion of Allah, then this is something that will save them from the punishment of hell, this is something that will protect them. Again, I remind you that in these days and nights, make sure that part of your
southern part of your charity, your contribution goes towards Islamic institutions, because here people are working not so that, you know, they get richer, no, the entire focus is on what on spreading the knowledge of Islam. So that people get to learn what what what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, people get to know what Islam really is. So try to support different organizations in different ways contribute to your local Masjid contribute to this this organization, also alhuda Institute because Mashallah you have been, you know, listening to the, to the class, and a lot of people are, you know, just volunteering over here, money is not going in any any person's pocket
surprised alone. And, you know,
there's so many expenses, supprimer law, you know, to run an online class to pay for these portals, to make all of these, you know,
resources available to people. So try to contribute, and especially when you benefit from someplace, then make sure that you put your share in it, you can contribute a little amount, a big amount. And I would request the sisters who were here that if you can share the launch could link it, you know, in the comments, so that people know where they can contribute. Because, again, we are not spending over here, you know, to so that perhaps we can get richer, or perhaps this is going in the pockets of certain individuals. No, this is for our love of the call on our love of Islam. And with that, we hope that Allah subhanaw taala he will protect us and He will save us in the next life. So it is
that you believe in Allah and His messenger and strive in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives that is best for you. If you should know he will forgive for you your sins, and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residents. That is the great attainment, the reward is also mentioned over here. And you will also obtain another favor that you love victory from a law and an eminent conquest. A last panel title will give you good in this life also, you will see the fruits of your efforts sooner or later and give good tidings to the believers. So if you do your part, you fully strive then Allah subhanaw taala will
also reward you He will not leave you empty handed or you who have believed be supporters of Allah kuno unsubtle law. You see Allah does not need our help. We are actually being honored over here by giving a chance, you know, an opportunity to serve his Deen to promote his religion, to serve what we have to bring forward what we have to, you know, to support his religion. This is an opportunity for us, this is a privilege for us. So all you who have believed, be supporters of Allah, you support yourselves also support the deen of Allah, as when he saw the son of money I'm set to the disciples who are my supporters for Allah. So the unsubtle law on satola are Who? Those who help the
cause of Allah, restarting his Salaam said, Man on Sati in Allah who will help me in order to support the cause of Allah soprano Tada. The disciples said, We are the supporters of a law. We will help we will come forward we will bring whatever that we can and affection of the children of Israel you believed and effect
disbelieved, so we supported those who believed against their enemy, and they became dominant. So history is proof that those who respond to a loss call who obey Allah who strive the way that they should, then a loss penalty grants them success. Look at this, there were only 12 disciples, and one of them actually betrayed resigning his son, but restarting his center, and those paths are the same. And the message that he brought any it did spread. So there were people up until the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who worshipped only Allah and Sandman and Pharisees, Dylan Moran, who was one of them, all all of the people who believe in reincarnation and did not come a
chick, that chick came in much later. So we see that success is from Allah, it is not because of our resources, because of our numbers. So we should never be little that you know what i can only give $5 what is that going to do? No, you bring what you can, and Allah subhanaw taala will bless it. Allah subhanaw taala will increase it and Allah subhanaw taala will reward you for it sooner to Jumeirah. Bismillah R Rahman and Rahim you said behold Allah emf is somehow wealthy women feel old, and Malik and reduce Allah Aziz al Hakim, whatever isn't the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah. So why should we not exalt Allah? He is the Sovereign, the pure, the Exalted in
Might the wise, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised his daughter Fatima, when she complained to him of both of her hands blistering and her body getting fatigued, he advised her to say Subhana Allah, Allahu Akbar and Alhamdulillah so making this beer is actually a cure to fatigue. So if you're feeling tired right now, make some fuss Be proud Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala he will be humbly Subhan Allah hid alim.
It is he who has sent among the unlettered a messenger from themselves, reciting to them his verses, and purifying them, and teaching them the book and wisdom, although they were before in clear error. So these were the responsibilities of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, that he was to teach he was to recite the verses of love to the people, he was to purify the people, not just give them information, but to make them better people than before. He was to teach them the book, and he was to teach them the wisdom. So anyone who wishes to teach Islam, they should make sure that they're covering all of these aspects, it is not enough to only appreciate you know, the meaning of the book
of Allah. It is also important that we learn how to recite the book of Allah and we dedicate time to reciting the book of Allah. And again, our focus should not just be on perfecting our recitation, it should also be on learning what the words mean. And then al hikma, this is wisdom, and then does care, that all of this is for action, not just for information.
And he has also been sent to others of them, who have not yet joined them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is for all people, until the end of time. And Allah is the Exalted in Might, the Wise, that is the bounty of Allah, which he gives to whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty, look at the blessing of Quran, and then it is said, valleca follow law, the Quran is truly a favor of Allah. So if you have put on in your life, you were very fortunate, the example of those who were entrusted with the law, and then did not take it on, and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes of books. Meaning, these are people who once upon a time
learned the book of Allah the total, but then they did not implement it, they instead forget to forgot about it, or they only studied it, and they did not practice it. So their example is like that of a donkey that is carrying a burden of books. Meaning a donkey can also have a lot of books. But that, you know, having those books is not a source of honor or privilege for the donkey because it doesn't know what those books are and what they mean. It doesn't really benefit from them. And for the donkey, the books are only a burden. wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. So remember, if the Quran is only
outside of you, meaning it is something external, something that you only talk about, or something that you only read and study and it doesn't make it to your heart. It doesn't transform you it doesn't grow something in your heart. It doesn't make you better than this is not a benefit in
is not a favor, it is a curse. It is a loss. Remember the Quran sacred knowledge is supposed to be internalized. So those people who just read the book without following it are being criticized over here. So the people who are true bearers of the Quran, are people who in their lives that shows that they know the Quran. And this is what Abraham said that the bearers of the Quran are those who act upon it, even if they have not memorized all of it, and a person who has memorized the Quran, and who who recites it perfectly, but he does not implement it, then such a person is not a bearer of the Quran. Such a person is not a carrier of the Quran. So we must see how how the Quran is
reflected in our lives, say, oh you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of Allah, excluding the other people then wish for death if you should be truthful, but they will not wish for it ever because of what their hands have put forth. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers say, indeed, the depth from which you flee, indeed, it will meet you it is on its way, then you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed. And he will inform you about what you use to do. So remember, death is approaching. It has literally surrounded us, we escaped death, you know, through different events in our lives, different accidents, different problems, but sooner or later,
it is coming. It is going to surround us it is going to affect us we're not going to stay in this world forever. Or you have believed when the event is called for the prayer on the day of Friday, then proceed to the remembrance of Allah, meaning then go and listen to the hope and pray salah and leave trade, meaning stop your work, drop whatever it is that you're doing, and go to the masjid that is better for you If you only knew and this is something that shows us that on hearing the event of Jumeirah a person should go quickly to the masjid May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to listen to that and again and to be able to go pray in our massages. And notice how it has been
mentioned that go go to the remembrance of Allah which is the hookah
meaning that don't just go for the Salah late but go on time so that you get to listen to the hookah because that is very important that is part of salata Juma, and remember, the earlier a person goes, the more reward they they gain. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about the day of Friday, that this day, isn't he it is a festival which Allah has ordained for the Muslims, whoever comes to Friday prayer, let him take a bath and if he has perfume, then let him put some on and upon you is the miswak meaning you must please please clean your mouth before you go to the masjid. Friday is the day of forgiveness, we learn. And it is a date of Dora's because at a certain time
between us and Muslim, you know that there is a time when the hours are accepted. And there is of course more reward for the people who go early to the masjid on Friday. And we also learned that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will bring the days of the week in certain forms. And he will bring the day of Friday in a beautifully radiant and shining form. And the people of Friday, the people of Friday Who are they? There are people who who, who for whom Friday is a big deal. So they they make that a special day they make sure they go to the masjid, their day revolves around the Friday prayer. So the people of Friday will surrounded like a bride is surrounded when taken to
her groom. So it will lighten up the way for them so they will walk in it's light, their colors like white snow and their fragrance like musc as if they were in mountains of cat food, men and jinn will look at them not turning away out of amazement until they will enter Jannah like this. So just imagine people of Friday will enter Jannah like a royal you know procession soprano law, and none will mingle with them, meaning none will reach their ranks except the events meaning those who make the event. And along Hadees winner that Friday will be called Friday is called yo moseyed meaning the day of increase because in Paradise, Friday will be the day of increase in blessings because
this is the day when people of Paradise will meet their Lord. So they will become even more beautiful and they will become even more happy and they will increase in their blessings even more. So give importance to this day. You know these days because we're not able to go to the masjid for Jumeirah, you know, and sometimes we don't even know what day of the week it is. Friday is still special. Just because we're not able to go to the mustard on Friday. It doesn't mean that Friday has become unimportant.
Now, it is still important, we can we should still send Salatin the Prophet salallahu orders on Friday, we should still recite so little calf on Friday, we should still increase an hour they could on Friday, for evapo dia to slit out. And when the prayer has been concluded, then disperse within the land and seek from the bounty of Allah meaning go back to work and remember Allah often that you may succeed. So, you see the kind of allies mentioned make they could so that you may be successful. So they could is a way there is a path to success. But when they saw transaction or a diversion,
they rush to it and left you standing say what is with Allah is better than diversion and then and then a transaction and Allah is the best off providers indication as to the time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once giving Juma hookah and a caravan arrived in Medina bringing supplies and you know, food and goods and making a lot of noise so that people would come and shop and it was very, very tempting for the people who were sitting, you know, in the masjid. So one by one, people started leaving the mustard in order to go to the market and buy food and the goods that had just arrived because they were afraid that if they were to go after Salah, then they wouldn't
find anything sopran Allah, so Allah, Allah reveal this ayah that what is with Allah is better, it is better. So yes, you are tempted to go shop and do your work and make money etc. But the reward that Allah soprano tada has to give that is way better for you. So, yes, when it comes to your obligations, then you must prioritize them. You must give them preference over your worldly needs. And when you have fulfilled your obligation towards Allah subhanaw taala then of course, you go and fulfill your worldly needs. But don't don't give preference to worldly needs over worship. pseudotumor nafi Cohn, Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, when the hypocrites come to you. They say we
testify that you are the Messenger of Allah. And Allah knows that you are His Messenger. And Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars as the little law. The hypocrites would say with their mouth that they're Muslim, but their hearts did not testify. And this is why their words are rejected over here. They would say we bear witness that you are the Messenger of Allah and Allah says that the hypocrites are lying. Meaning even though the statement that they're saying is true, meaning that the parameters of the law or in Islam is the Messenger of Allah, their testimony, meaning they're saying it, they're saying that we believe in it, that is not true. So we see that a hypocrite lies a
hypocrite deceives the hypocrite uses false oaths to be more believable to people. But Allah subhanaw taala does not accept such lies. This is why we should refrain from lying, and we should be afraid lest we develop hypocrisy in our hearts and we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us.
They have taken their oath as a cover. So they averted people from the way of Allah. Indeed, it was evil that they were doing that is because they believed and then they disbelieved. So, their hearts were sealed over and they do not understand and when you see them, their forms please you because their entire focus is on pleasing people, right? So their entire focus is on their their image. So their you know, their bodies, their clothes, their physical appearance, Masha, Allah, very nice, muscular and fit and well dressed and so you know, beautiful and handsome, but if they speak, you listen to their speech, meaning their words, also, they're very, very impressive. They are as if
there were pieces of wood propped up, meaning they're empty and faithless, they only look good outside, but in reality, they are useless. They don't really bring any benefit. If you think about it, pieces of wood that are propped up against a wall, what benefit are they, they're useless. So just like that there are people who pay a lot of attention to their physical well being to their, you know, physical appearance. And what good is that? If you're not using your physical strength to help people, if you're not using the strengths that are lost pentatonic has given you to worship Him. If you're not using your strengths, your money, your resources to help the religion of Allah.
They think that every shout is against them, meaning inside, they are very, very guilty. They're cowards, they are the enemy. So beware of them. May Allah destroy them. How are they diluted? We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that
Two things will never be together in a hypocrite good manners and Fiq understanding in the religion. He also said that what I fear for my own mother most as a hypocrite was Arlene and listen, meaning he knows how to speak well. And through his words, he convinces people
and when it is said to them come, the Messenger of Allah will ask forgiveness for you. They turn their heads aside, and you see them evading while they're arrogant, meaning they don't like to come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is all the same for them. Whether you ask forgiveness for them, or do not ask forgiveness for them, never will ALLAH forgive them. Indeed, Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people. They're the ones who say do not spend on those who are with the Messenger of Allah until they disband. And to Allah belong the depositories of the heavens and the earth. But the hypocrites do not understand. They say if we return to Medina, the more honored
meaning the one who has more power will surely expelled there from the more humble because the hypocrites considered themselves to be more honorable. And our beloved obey actually said this on one of the expeditions, he was really upset about something. And he said, when we go back to Medina, the one was more honorable will expel the one who does not have honor. Basically what he was saying was when we get back to Medina, I'm going to expel Muhammad Sallallahu were to send them a stuffit Allah, and to Allah belongs all honor, and to His Messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know or you who have believed, let not your wealth and your children divert you
from remembrance of Allah, you see was the love of wealth, it was the love of their families that caused these people to become hypocrites. And whoever does that, then those are the losers. So we are advised here that do not let your family and your things make you so busy, that you forget to remember Allah. the remembrance of Allah is Food for the Soul, it is nourishment for the heart, it is a path to success. So yes, you have to be with your family, you have to do your work, you have to look after your wealth, but then when it is time for prayer, it is time to remember a law than you have to make time for Salah as a Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would and spend in the way of
Allah from what We have provided you before death approach is one of you and he says My Lord, if only you would delay me for a brief term, so I would give charity and be among the righteous stuff that Allah May Allah subhanaw taala Forgive us, sometimes we delay giving charity we say that you know what next month inshallah, right next Ramadan inshallah, right, we keep delaying, who knows if we're going to get that opportunity again, it doesn't mean that a person just gives everything that they have, and next day they're begging for money, they're begging for food, no, it means that yes, you you know, you fulfill your needs. And then you see whatever you have that is left over, you
know, you would like to save that for your, you know, enjoyment and your, you know, pleasure later on in life, but some of that, spend it for your own benefit, spend it in good causes, so that in the Hereafter, you're not empty handed, you have something that is waiting for you, you have something that will benefit you.
So, give of what you have, but never will allow a delay a soul when it's time has come. And Allah is acquainted with what you do. So give charity before your death. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that do not delay charity until the time when death approaches you. And then you say, Give to so and so and give to so and so. And give this much to that cause and give that much to that cause there's there's no point in that. Why? Because when you die, any you're going to die very soon. And now your wealth is no longer yours anyway, it's going to go to other people anyway. So give charity while you have health and you are hopeful, and you want to enjoy your wealth yourself.
Perhaps you fear poverty, and you you expect to become more wealthy, give, give for your own benefit. sudo toot the horn Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, use of be holy, let him fly to fill out whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is it's his exalting Allah, To Him belongs dominion, and To Him belongs all praise. And he is over all things competent. It is He Who created you, and among you is the disbeliever. And among you is the believer and a lot of what you do is seeing allies watching our deeds. He created the heavens and the earth in truth and formed you and perfected your forms sopran Allah and to him is the final destination.
He knows what is within the heavens and the earth and knows what you conceal and what you and what you declare and Allah is
Knowing of that within the chests, why should he not know when he has created us? Has there not come to you the news of those who disbelieve before, so they tasted the bad consequence of their affair, and they will have a painful punishment. That is because their messengers used to come to them with clear evidences, but the essential human beings guide us meaning they dismissed the messenger simply because they were human, and disbelieved and turned away and Allah dispensed with them. He didn't need them, and Allah is free of need, and praiseworthy, those who have this belief have claimed that they will never be resurrected, say yes, by my Lord, you will surely be resurrected, then you will
surely be informed of what you did. And that for Allah is easy. Everything has a consequence you think you already you are, you know an exception. What do you do well will also bring good results. So believe in Allah and His messenger and the light which we have sent down. What is this light the Quran And Allah is an Allah is acquainted with what you do the day he will assemble you for the day of assembly, that is the day of deprivation soprano law, the day of judgment is called the oma Tabone, the day of deprivation, because it is the day when some people will lose and others will gain and whoever believes in Allah and does righteousness, he will remove from him his misdeeds and
admit him to gardens beneath which reverse flow wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment. So remember, on the day of judgment, the believers will gain and the disbelievers will lose. Some people will get Jenna and other people will lose themselves and their families and their properties and their deeds and whatever else that they had. May Allah subhanaw taala pardon us.
Well, Edina, cafaro but the ones who disbelieved and denied our verses, those are the companions of the Fire abiding eternally they're in
and Richard is the destination, no disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah, He will guide his heart woman you remember Allah Yeah, the culpa. This means that when a person is struck by difficulty, and they believe in Allah, meaning they remind themselves that this is by the permission of Allah, and Allah His decision is with his wisdom, it is with his mercy, it is with his knowledge. So I trust Allah azza wa jal, then what will happen, Allah will guide his heart, Allah subhanaw taala will also give him peace, Allah subhanaw taala will guide this person to say what is right and to do what is right, Allah will guide him will love will be cliche
in our Elohim and Allah is Knowing of all things. Remember, if the heart is guided, then the entire person is guided, and if the heart is not guided, then nothing will be guided, the words will not be right, the actions will not be right, our response to the situation that we are in cannot be right. So it is important that whenever we are struck by any difficulty, the first thing we do is that we think about we think about Allah, we put our trust in Allah and obey Allah and obey the messenger. But if you turn away, then upon our messenger is only the duty of clear notification, a law there is no deity except Him. And upon Allah let the believers rely all you have believed indeed, among your
wives, your spouses, and your children are enemies to you. How, how can they be enemies, because sometimes they become a hurdle for you. They prevent you from obeying Allah, you love them, they love you. But sometimes that love becomes unhealthy when it prevents you from obeying Allah and worshiping Him. So beware of them. Be careful around them, meaning, don't abandon them. Of course, that's not what Allah God is asking us to do. But at the same time, be aware of them realize that in their love, sometimes you end up neglecting your duty to Allah, you ended up falling short in your duty to Allah. So yes, love your spouse, love your children, but not unconditionally, that you lose
yourself. You forget about who you are, and you forget about your obligation, your duty to Allah. But if you pardon and overlook and forgive soprano law, this is what you're supposed to show to your family. Notice three words of forgiveness are used here, pardon overlook, forgive in powerful dust for who don't feel. What does that mean? You have to forgive your family, your children, your spouse, again and again and again. You have to overlook their mistakes again and again and again. Because if you don't and you keep fighting all the time, you keep arguing all the time, then you're only going to make life difficult for yourself, then Indeed, Allah is forgiving.
and merciful, so keep forgiving and overlooking the annoyances of your family, even when they oppose you and your religion. Now, sometimes it happens that when you are available for your family, they don't remember anything. But the moment you open up the most have to recite the Quran, then everybody remembers all the things that they have to ask you, and all the things that they need from you. So you get annoyed over there, you get irritated over there, but you must pardon and overlook, meaning you must respond to them in a beautiful way. Don't be impatient. Don't be angry, don't be harsh over there. Even our bus will the Longhorn who was asked about this ayah. And he explained
that there were some people who accepted Islam in Makkah, and they wanted to come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they wanted to make the hinges, but their families would stop them that no, don't go. And then there were also some people in Medina, who, whenever they intended to participate in Jihad with the prophets of Allah, who were to send them again, their families would stop them, but please don't go. So sometimes your own family stops you, right? And that is not coming from a bad place. They love you and they want to be with you. Right? And this is why sometimes and their love, they they don't want you to be away from them. They would rather that you
spend time with them. But you know how the Prophet salallahu already sent in one night, he got up in order to pray. And he said to show the loved one had that Orisha, allow me, let me worship My Lord. And I shall Dylan Warren had answered that I love that you are with me, meaning I want that you should be with me. But I also love that you worship Allah. So the prophets of Allah already sent him got up, and he performed Salah. And he was given the final concluding verses of surah Allah Amman at that time and he wept so much that the place of is such that was wet with his tears, his his beard was also wet with his tears. So this is how we need to be with our family, that you know what, I
love you, but I also want the best for you. So yes, go and study something. Yes, go and you know, serve your parents, I love you, I want the best for you. So yes, sit down and recite some Quran, I would rather talk to you. But I respect the fact that you want to, you know, worship Allah subhanaw taala at this time, this is the kind of love and support we need to offer. But sometimes we don't always get that support from our loved ones. So there so that is where we need to show forgiveness, your wealth and your children are at a trial. So you will be tested. Sometimes you will have that support from your children, from your spouse and other and other times you will not so this is a
test. And Allah has with him a great reward.
So fear Allah as much as you were able, meaning do whatever that is within your capacity, the maximum that you can, and listen and obey and spend against otherwise mentioned, get in the way of a law, because what will I do? It will expiate for your sins, it is better for yourselves and whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul, it is those who will be the successful so the real hurdle is really inside of ourselves. It is in our hearts. And for that we need to seek Allah soprano TARDIS help. It's very easy to blame your family that Oh, they don't let me or they make me angry, but we need to focus on what is it that I can do. If you loan Allah goodly mode, what you
give in the cause of Allah is actually alone alone will give you back, he will multiply it for you. And he will also forgive you. And Allah is most appreciative and forbearing Knower of the unseen and the witness the Exalted in Might the wise. So the fact is that if we were honest, when it comes to our relationship with our families, we would know that we are not perfect, we make mistakes. And so, a man asked the prophets of Allah who already know about this, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned certain good deeds and of them is sadaqa charity, that this is something that experience for the mistakes that you make towards your family, for the places where you fall short
in your duty towards your family. And there are times when because of your family because of your loved ones, you end up falling short in your duty to Allah. So how do you compensate for that? keep giving sadaqa or profit sooner? Tada Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. All Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you Muslims divorce women, divorce them for the commencement of their waiting period, meaning give the divorce at a time when a woman can actually begin her and keep count of the waiting period and fear Allah your Lord, do not turn them out of their husbands houses do not kick them out, nor should they leave meaning they should not leave themselves in rage unless they are committing a
clear and morality. And those are the limits set by Allah And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah has certainly wronged himself. You know not perhaps a lot will bring about after that a different matter.
be hopeful. And when they have nearly fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms and bring to witness to just men from among you. And all witnesses established the testimony for a law that is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last Day, and whoever fears Allah, He will make for him a way out. So we see that even tala for divorce has to be done properly, when it comes to weddings. What is it that we don't know about any we know all the customs and traditions and you know, all the latest designs and all the latest decorations that we have borrowed from different cultures. And we are so
particular about, you know, this party and that party and this event and that detail. But when it comes to the religious laws, how a marriage is to be, you know, conducted, and how people are to live with one another, we don't know. And when it comes to divorce, we are even more ignorant. So people follow their desires only when it comes to divorce. And it is mentioned over here, this is instructed to whoever should believe in a line the last day, meaning if you believe in a line the last day, then you must
go through divorce properly also. And whoever fears Allah and Allah will make a way out for him. Subhana Allah earlier we learned that whoever believes in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. Here we learned that whoever fears Allah, then Allah will make a way out for him, where in this life, and also in the next meeting any trouble any difficulty than a less penalty will create a way and one of the scholars said this means that unless Panther will make a way for him towards gender, so you don't know something so painful that you're going through such as divorce, something that is so difficult, but if you do it the right way, following the commands of Allah subhanaw taala that are
related to divorce, you never know this might be the very reason why you enter Jenna sopran of law. Why are so common Hazel a passive and will provide for him from where he does not even expect meaning from where person cannot even imagine? Because a lot of times people like to ignore the laws of Islam related to divorce and they want to follow their desire. Why? Because of money that they want to get money from, you know, from the person that they're divorcing or their family. So what is mentioned over here you fear Allah, you do things the right way, Allah will not, Allah will not deprive you, he will provide you from where you cannot even imagine. And whoever relies upon Allah,
then Allah is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose, meaning things that are meant to happen will happen. Allah has has already set for everything a decreed extent. So your freedom, your money, your time that you have, your marriage that you have any everything that you have is limited, and through these limited things you are being tested. And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women, if you doubt, then their period of Ada of waiting is three lunar months, and also for those who have not menstruating. And for those who are pregnant, their turn is until they give birth and whoever fears Allah, He will make for him of his matter ease. That
is the command of a law which he has sent down to you. And whoever fears Allah, He will remove from him, he will remove for him his misdeeds and make great for him his reward soprano law, how appreciative is Allah subhanaw taala there is reward for leaving sin even. These are the benefits of taqwa. During the waiting period, where where is the woman supposed to stay? It is said lodge them in a section of where you dwell out of your means and do not harm them in order to oppress them. And sometimes what happens is that the divorces issue and immediately the woman is sent away, that you cannot even come back over here, you cannot even come to get your things. You know, the keys to the
locks to the house are changed so that a woman cannot even get back to her house and get the things that she needs. And if they should be pregnant, then spend on them until they give birth. It is the man's responsibility to do that. And if they breastfeed for you, meaning the baby, then give them their payment and confer decide among yourselves in the acceptable way. But if you are in discord, then there must be then there may breastfeed for the father, another woman, meaning then someone else can be hired to nurse the child. This is also an option. let a man of wealth spend from his wealth and he whose provision is restricted, let him spend from what Allah has given him. A law does
not charge a soul except according to what he has given it. A low will bring about after hardship ease, so there is ease after hardship. You see over here divorce has been mentioned and it has been made very clear that the man has to spend
On his, on his wife, right? When when she's pregnant when she gives birth, and even if he divorces her while she is pregnant, she is no longer his wife. And he still
after the after the woman gives birth, then that woman is no longer married to him. But still the man has to give money to who to the mother of his child. He has to give her enough food, you know enough money so that she has enough clothes in a food What does that show that, that a man must spend on his wife and on his children. And this is an obligation and this is something rewardable Don't be stingy in this matter. A lot of men will you know spend on their friends on you know, dinner on their entertainment, but when it comes to spending on their wives and their children, they become very, very stingy over there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you are
rewarded for even the bite of food that you put in the mouth of your wife, honey, you are rewarded for this. So why be stingy? And how many a city was insolent toward the command of its Lord and His Messenger. So we took it to severe account and punished it with a terrible punishment, and it tasted the bad consequences of its affair. And the outcome of its affair was loss. Allah has prepared for them a severe punishment. So fear Allah or you have understanding who have believed, take a lesson. Allah has sent down to you a reminder, he sent a messenger reciting to you the distinct verses of Allah, that he may bring out those who believe and do righteous deeds from darkness into the light.
And whoever believes in Allah and does righteousness, he will admit him into gardens beneath which reverse glow to abide there and forever Allah will have perfected for him a provision. It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them, meaning multiple Earths also, he his command descends among them. So you may know that Allah is over all things competent, and that Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge. So the fact is, that Nothing escapes his knowledge and you are his creation, everywhere Allah soprano tarnis command is implemented and you have been given the choice to either obey the commands that Allah has given you, or disobey, what are you
going to do? So even in terms of marriage and divorce, pay regard to the commands that alone, God has given? Sula to him? Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, O Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why do you prohibit yourself from what Allah has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives, and the lies Forgiving and Merciful? Allah subhanaw taala did not even allow his messenger to make what is lawful into unlawful for the sake of someone that he loved. So then how can we, Allah has already ordained for you Muslims, the dissolution of your oaths and allies, your protector, and he is the knowing the wise. And remember when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam confided to one
of his wives a statement. And because it was a secret, it was supposed to be a secret. But she informed another of it. And when she did, that, Allah informed him about it. The Prophet sallallahu already said have made known part of it to her and ignored a part. You see, there's a certain background to this to these verses, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go to his wives. And, you know, at times, of course, there would be jealousy between them. So once the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam spent, you know, a little longer duration with one of the wives and he had honey. So, some of the other wives of the Prophet salallahu already said that they felt really
jealous. So they, you know, confided together that we will tell him, that because of this, because of whatever you ate, you have bad breath. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not like bad breath at all. So when he was told not just by one, but by two wives, he said, I am never going to eat this honey again. And when the prophets of Allah who were de Sena mentioned this, this was supposed to be a secret. But what happened? She told another life of the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina about it, and this was not right. Remember, when your spouse share something private with you, then that is between you and your spouse and you should respect that privacy. In the Quran, we
are told that righteous women are happy lots that they are those who diligently guard guard what the secrets the private matters that are shared with them. And the same As expected of a man that please share, you know, please respect your wife's privacy, any if she has shared something with you, let that be a private matter between you and her and don't go on spreading it to the world. So we see over here that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he found out that this, you know, secret had been shared by someone. So what did he do? He expressed
Some of it, and he ignored part of it, meaning he let her know that yes, I know that you shared this with someone, but he did not, you know, attack her full on. And this is something very, very important. Sometimes you know your spouse has made a mistake, please don't shame them and embarrass them by listing all you said this, and then you did this and then you raise your eyebrows and then that you use that word. And then your tone was louder, and then you were stopping and then you went here and then you went there any we remember the faults of our spouse to such a great length, get over it. Don't be so petty, any move on, be tolerant with the people that you live with, learn to
ignore and overlook the mistakes of people. And this is a sign of a dignified person. And when he informed her about it, she said, Who told you this? He said, I was informed by the knowing be acquainted. If you to repent to Allah, it is best for your hearts have deviated this was a mistake. But if you cooperate against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then indeed Eliza's protector and debris and the righteous of the believers and the angels, moreover, are his assistance. Perhaps his Lord, in the profit divorced you all, would substitute for him wives better than you to the wives of the Prophet sallallahu orudis and we're being taught a very important lesson here that do
not bother the Prophet sallallaahu already sent him again, don't gang up against him again, because he can replace you with someone else who will be submitting to Allah believe in devoutly obedient, repentant, worshipping and traveling once previously married and version and vergence.
Once previously married and virgins being that doesn't matter what matters is their Islam, their Eman and their taqwa. And then we are addressed all you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a fire who's fuel these people and stones over which are appointed angels harsh and severe. They do not disobey Allah in what He commands them, but do what they are commanded us the federal law, or you have all you who have disbelieved. Make no excuses that day, you will only be recompense for what you used to do, or you who have believed, repent to Allah with sincere repentance. Honestly, repent to Allah with your tongue. seek forgiveness with your body, leave sin
with your heart, resolved to never repeat the sin again, and make Toba with your environment also meaning change your situation. Perhaps your Lord will remove from you your misdeeds and admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow on the day when Allah will not disgrace the prophet and those who believed with him. There light will proceed before them and on their right. They will say Our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us indeed you are over all things competent. Yeah, uh, you hanabi all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them and their refuges. Hell, and wretched as this is the destination.
soprano la wretched is the destination. Earlier we learned in the previous ayah, about how Allah subhanaw taala will perfect the light of His Prophet and the righteous. And remember there are certain deeds because of which light will be increased for a person and these are making will do properly and going to the masjid walking to the masjid specifically, and reciting sort of Caf on Friday and giving sadaqa because we're Southern Cotonou. And also, we learned that if a person becomes old in Islam, then that will be a source of light for them on the Day of Judgment. Allah presents an example of those who disbelieved the wife of noon and the wife of Luke, they were under
two of our righteous servants but betrayed them. So those prophets did not avail them from Allah at all. And it was said, enter the fire with those who enter. These were women whose husbands were prophets whose husbands were righteous and pious. So this shows us that a husband's piety will not benefit the wife if she herself is not pious, if she does not take responsibility for herself. Because a lot of times what happens is that after marriage, women tend to neglect themselves. They they almost make their husbands into their, you know, objects of worship, that now their entire life revolves around pleasing the husband and that should not be the case. Yes, Your husband is
important, but Allah subhanaw taala is even more important. And Allah presents an example of those who believed the wife of fit our own when she said My Lord, built for me near you a house in paradise a lot earlier in the debate and Phil Jenna and saved me from federal and his deeds and saved me from the wrongdoing people. What a what a wise, intelligent woman she was. Her husband was not a believer. Her husband was actually our own it denier in an oppressor and arrogant man. But she is an example for the believers. Look at her goal. She wanted a
House in general, she had a house in dounia. Right? And she knew what the worth of that house was. And she understood that the real home is the home of the hereafter. real success, isn't closeness to Allah subhanaw taala not in closeness to people to the creation, but in closeness to Allah, and the example of money and the daughter of Milan, who guarded her chestatee. So we blew into her Garmin through her through our Angel, and she believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient. She spent hours in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, consistently worshiping Him. So we see that money and was a single woman, she was not even married. So it's not
about who you are married to. It's about what you do. Melissa panels are the makers of his devoutly obedient servants whose goal is to please Him and to be close to him as a religion. So Chronicle lahoma will be handed a shadow La ilaha illa Anta Furukawa Tobu la wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
