Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh who

00:01:12 --> 00:01:32

are with the bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hill Karim, rubbish Swahili Sadri were Sidley Emery wa Hello looked at a melissani of Tahu Kohli along with the Colby was sadly Sonny was through to him at the con be Armenia herbal alanine.

00:01:34 --> 00:02:13

Inshallah, in today's session of stories from the Quran, we will continue with our study of the story of Adam already his sunnah. In the previous class, we learned about how Allah subhanaw taala honored Adam Alayhis Salam, and had the angels made such debt to him. But then shaitan Iblees, who was among the angels, who was also supposed to make such a refused, and instead of acknowledging his mistake, instead of apologizing, he became stubborn. And he, he justified his sin and He blamed Allah. And he blamed Adam and he,

00:02:14 --> 00:02:46

he vowed to take revenge from Adam. How, by declaring enmity against Adam and the children of Adam until the day of judgment, and he vowed that he would lead them all astray, except for the chosen servants of Allah. And then we talked about how shaytaan uses different ways and different means to mislead the children of Adam. And we'll also discuss briefly as to how to protect ourselves from the tricks of shaitan.

00:02:48 --> 00:03:02

Now Inshallah, we'll talk about verse number 35, from Surah Baqarah where Allah subhanaw taala tells us about how he made Adam and his wife Hawa, stay in Jannah

00:03:03 --> 00:03:35

Allah subhanaw taala says we're gonna Yeah Adam and we said Oh, Adam, was couldn't enter was Oh duchal JANA dwell you and your wife in paradise. What Kula Minh Ha Ramadan, Hisashi toma and eat there from in ease and abundance. While at the Quran Allah had his Shudra but do not approach this tree. Further coup nominally mean lest you be among the wrongdoers.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:46

Allah subhanaw taala honors Adam Alayhis Salam in one more way, how? By having him dwell in Jannah.

00:03:47 --> 00:04:11

So Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, Adam autoscan, enter was, oh, dukkha Oh, Adam dwell you and your wife. So you and your wife together dwell in paradise. The word xojo in the Arabic language is used for one of a pair. And it's also used for the husband and also the wife, here is old means wife.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:20

Now, from this, it is very clear that that the wife of Adam Alayhis Salam had been created as well.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:59

And she was going to be in Jannah. With Adam really his salah. The question is when exactly was the wife of Adam Alayhis Salam created, who was she? How was she created? So it is well known that her name is her work, her work, and she was created after other money has said and was created. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that she was created from the Lulu and he from the rib of Adam Alayhis Salam, ne the substance from which he was created, was within was in the body of Adam and his sunnah as Allah subhana

00:05:00 --> 00:05:50

Ultron also tells us that we'll have a comin has algebra that he created from it meaning from the first from the single soul, it's meat. So the spouse of other listeners came from him, other than insulin was created from throb from dust, and the wife of other Melissa was created from Adam Allison himself. And then the rest of humanity came from both Adam and Howard. So how was not some other end some different species some different creation, or someone who was created from a completely different substance? No, her essence came from Adam and his sunnah. So this is what we learned from the Quran and Sunnah Allah subhanaw taala also tells us in Surah, two out of that, who

00:05:50 --> 00:06:36

will lead the Halacha comin Nuptse Wahida wa Jalla Minh has Elda Lea schooner, ha ha. It is He Who created you from one soul and created from it, it's made, that he might dwell insecurity with her. And this is an indication that the reason why Allah subhanaw taala created human beings such that there is a husband and wife. Why so that the husband may dwell in security with her, which means that without her, he would be missing that sense of security. So this is the purpose of marriage, to provide a sense of security to one another, to provide a sense of belonging to provide sukoon to one another Lea schooner, La Jolla.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:41

Now with regard to the name howa or her work,

00:06:42 --> 00:07:23

it is said that the word Hawa ne it means it is derived from a word that gives us the meaning of a color that is slightly dark. And they say that linguists say that the reason why Hawa was called her work is because of the color of her skin. It was not completely white, it was not completely dark, but it was somewhere in the middle. And also the word howa means to surround okay to surround something. And the linguist say that the reason why Hawa was called Hawa is because

00:07:24 --> 00:07:40

I need the man basically surrounded by his wife. And he he sees her, he thinks of her, he talks to her he hears from her. So he is surrounded in a way by his wife and this is in a good way.

00:07:41 --> 00:08:00

Then it is also said that the word Hawaii is derived from the word Hawaii which is basically a sub tribe. So the reason why Hawaii is called Hawaii is because she is the mother of all sub tribes, any all the tribes that will come forth the different tribes of people. She is their mother, because she is the first woman.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:56

Well, Allahu Arnhem so Hawa has also been created. Now Allah subhanaw taala tells them to dwell in paradise with her. Now there's a question What is this Jana that Allah subhanaw taala tells Adam alayhis salam to dwell in? Is this some Jana? Because Jana means garden? Is this a garden of this world? Or is it the garden of any agenda to hold paradise? Which Jana is? Now there is a difference of opinion among the alum at some say that this is a garden of the world? Because Allah subhanaw taala created other Maria husana to be in this world. And why would he put him in paradise first? Then they said that, in in paradise, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that layers Morona FISA law one

00:08:56 --> 00:08:56

we're lucky

00:08:57 --> 00:09:20

that the people of Paradise will not hear in paradise any any useless speech and in any noise, nor any lies. But we know from the story of Adam Alayhis Salam that IBLEES came into the garden, alright, and lied to Adam or his son. So if there's lying happening in Jannah, then that Jana cannot be paradise.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:53

And also they said that the people of Jana wha hoo minha be Mahara Jean, they're not to be expelled, they're not to be removed from Paradise, but we know from the story of Adam or his son um, that he was removed from from the garden. So they said that this is some garden in the world. And they also talked about, you know, its location and things like that. But the fact is that any when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada put either Marie's Salam in Jannah

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

ne, it is well known that he was not going to remain there forever.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:19

Because Allah subhanaw taala had made it clear that he that he was going to Jerry don't fill out the Khalifa that he was going to place in the earth in Khalifa. So basically, he was only in Jannah in paradise for a short amount of time, he was not going to remain there forever.

00:10:20 --> 00:10:43

Not at this point. And there is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim in which we learned that on the Day of Judgment, people will come to Adam and his sunnah. And they will say that, Oh, our father have the door of Paradise open for us. So he will say, well, uh huh, Raja, communal Jannetty, Illa hottie to a vehicle.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:50

That, is there anything that got you out of paradise except the mistake of your father.

00:10:51 --> 00:11:27

And he basically he's saying that it was because of my mistake that you were expelled, that he that we were removed from paradise. So I am not worthy of having the gate of Paradise open. Go to Ibrahim, go to my son Ibrahim, and ask him to have the gate of Paradise open. So in this hadith, what do we see the other one is that I'm says that it was the mistake of your father that had you removed from Jana. So with Jana, is he talking about some garden of the world? No, he's talking about paradise as as we know it, Jonathan hold.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:57

And the other thing is that Allah subhanaw taala told other men in his salon that autoscan was called means to dwell as in to, to, to remain for some time, okay? It doesn't mean that you remain here forever, that this is your temp that this is your permanent abode from this point onwards, okay? was gone. Any is to remain to have any

00:11:58 --> 00:12:45

sukhna from the same route is one's residence. Okay. And yes, your residence, your house is what you stay in. But it doesn't mean that 24/7 You were inside the house and forever, you were going to remain within it. It's understood that you go out and you come back. So just like that, this is your home. And you are here for now. And you will go but then you have to come back. In order to come back home, you have to prove yourself worthy of entering this home. So Ozcan, Anta was our local Jana. And the other thing is that the verses that the alumni mentioned, such as the fact that there is no lying in Paradise, and that the people of Paradise will not be removed from Paradise, this is

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46

talking about

00:12:48 --> 00:13:01

any the Hereafter. This is not describing Jannah as it was at the time of at the time when otherworldly Santa was admitted into paradise, because it was only other one. However,

00:13:02 --> 00:13:08

at the time, the rest of humanity was not there in paradise. So Ozcan answer was, oh, do call Jana.

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11


00:13:12 --> 00:13:42

then, the other thing is that one wonders, why is it that Adam Alayhis Salam was told to stay in Jannah when he was created to be in the world? What's the reason? Any, Why did Allah subhanaw taala not send Adam and Howard directly to the world? Why is it that they were first may to go to Paradise and dwell there for some time. This is because

00:13:43 --> 00:13:49

so that Adam and Howard would know that paradise is our actual home.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:56

This is our real home. This is where we belong. This is where we want to be.

00:13:57 --> 00:13:59

This is our goal.

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

And then there were sent to the world so that they were tested over there. And the children of Adam are also tested over there, as while there Khalifa on the earth. And then they have to prove themselves worthy off their home in Indiana.

00:14:19 --> 00:14:59

The other reason that we're in a mindset is to make the test of this world very clear to Adam and Hawa and also by extension, the rest of us. Because what happened in Paradise, while Adam and Hawa were there shaitan came and lied to them, and convinced them to disobey Allah. And when they disobeyed Allah, they ended up being removed from paradise. So this experience would make it very clear to them, that Chapin is their enemy, and that shaitan is a liar and that and that shaytaan persists and shaytaan

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

urges us to disobey our Lord. And if we do what we did before that we listen to shaytaan, and we end up disobeying our Lord, then we will be forever removed from Bliss, we will be forever removed from success from paradise. So that was like a an experience that would really teach Adam and Hawa and the rest of us about the enmity of shaytaan about how we have to be careful, and how shaytans goal is to make us disobey Allah in order to deprive us of the good rewards that Allah subhanaw taala has prepared for us.

00:15:40 --> 00:15:42

So Allahu Arlon

00:15:43 --> 00:15:52

why Allah subhanaw taala placed Adam and Hawa in paradise before sending them to the world. But these two explanations do seem very, very plausible.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:17

Allah subhanaw taala told them what Kula mean * rather than how to shoot tumor and eat from it, meaning eat in paradise, rather than abundantly how to shoot tumor wherever that you wish. Subhanallah look at the favor of Allah upon other Raisa, that Allah subhanaw taala bestows such versed

00:16:18 --> 00:16:21

it is so many many blessings

00:16:22 --> 00:16:49

to Adam and Hawa any look at the abundance of blessings and the freedom in paradise that eat how much ever you want, eat whatever you want, plentiful Lee, and wherever that you want. Now, what coulomb in her rather than eat from there, rather than in abundance, lowered means to your desire, any as much as you want, as much as you want.

00:16:51 --> 00:17:47

Rod is basically used to describe someone's life that has become very ample in its means. Very easy, very pleasant, very enjoyable. Like when you say someone's doing really good. What does that mean? They're healthy, they're wealthy, they have you know, good things in their life, good people in their lives, any they are, they are living a good life. Right. So this is Rod alive, have plenty of ease, have ample blessings, a life of pleasure. So what coulomb in her rather than rather than as in freely, as much as you want. And Hisashi Toma, wherever that you want meaning without any restriction, go to this part of paradise or go to another part of paradise, or go to the place where

00:17:47 --> 00:17:56

you went before any you have all of Jannah available to you eat whatever you want, how much ever you want an E to your heart's desire.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:00

What coulomb in * rather than, hey, sushi tuna.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:40

Now, the word Wakulla. And both of you eat shows us that all of the blessings of Paradise, and all of the food and the drink and the clothing and all other pleasures of paradise were equally accessible to who to both Adam and how it wasn't that Adam was given preference in terms of certain pleasures of paradise. No, both Adam and Hawa had equal access to the blessings of paradise. And this is something that we should bear in mind because sometimes we think that the good piece of meat is only for who for the son

00:18:41 --> 00:19:22

or for the husband. And the husband is only one who should eat well and the wife can eat the leftovers or what remains or what is not that good of a piece. No Wakulla both of you eat the good things are are supposed to be of equal access to both men and woman Wakulla minha Ramadan Hi Toshi toma in total Aarav. Also Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, yeah, the Muskaan enter was Oh duchal Jana, Falco, lemon Hideyoshi, toma and all Adam dwell you and your wife in Paradise And eat, eat from wherever that you want.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:27

Now, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

that basically

00:19:33 --> 00:19:38

that Allah subhanaw taala sent other Maria salam to paradise right.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:58

In other places in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about also certain instructions that Allah gave to Adam, before sending him to paradise. First of all, we learned that otherwise Salam was forewarned about his enemy shaitan

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


00:20:00 --> 00:20:28

The goal of Shaitan in surah Taha I 117, Allah subhanaw taala tells us for all nya Adam in Now Heather are the will look while is Odjick follow up Jana Ko mominul Jannetty fattoush Ka. So we said, oh Adam, indeed this is an enemy to you meaning a bliss is an enemy to you and also to your wife. So let him not remove you from Paradise because then you would suffer. Allahu Akbar.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:50

Allah subhanaw taala made it very clear to other Melissa that Iblees is their enemy, not their friend. And when you have an enemy, what does that mean? You don't believe the enemy. Right? You don't get fooled or tricked by the enemy, you have to be alert you have to be very careful. Secondly, a las Panatela tells him that

00:20:51 --> 00:21:08

follow up Jana Kumar Meenal Jannetty fattoush call that do not let your enemy have you removed from Paradise, which makes it very clear that Allah subhanaw taala made it clear to Adam and Adam and howa that the goal of your enemy is to remove you from Paradise

00:21:09 --> 00:21:14

and then he is told the consequences of being removed from paradise that Firtash call that you would suffer

00:21:15 --> 00:22:02

and in being removed from paradise there is suffering which means that in paradise there is no suffering there is suffering outside of paradise, right. So what does suffering mean? What is this flattish call, Shirakawa can be in one's religion, okay, in religious affairs, where a person is, you know, not not accepting of the truth. They don't have that they don't believe in the truth. They don't believe in Allah, they don't do any good to prepare for the Athleta. This is this is a form of wretchedness, okay? It's a form of suffering, because a person suffers as a result of lack of belief. And then there is eternal suffering, because of that, that cover

00:22:04 --> 00:22:56

but chicawa is also of this world, any that there is also such a power, such suffering, which is related to worldly affairs. And this is essentially when a person is caught up in such work. That is hard, difficult, and it is also very exhausting. Subhan Allah. And when Allah subhanaw taala told him that do not let him remove you from Paradise because then you would suffer. It's the worldly suffering that Allah subhanaw taala is warning him off, that you will suffer in the world. Because the nature of the world is that there is suffering in it. Because hard, difficult work is required in order to live in order to survive. And that difficult work that labor, it hires people out,

00:22:57 --> 00:23:07

right? Any you could spend the whole day just looking after your needs, just so that you can stay alive and you will be exhausted by the end of the day. Subhan Allah.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:16

Now first of all, notice that Allah subhanaw taala tells Adam addresses are the reason that yeah, them all Adam,

00:23:17 --> 00:24:06

do this is your enemy, and also the enemy of your wife. Okay, all those parents had a does not address both of them, that all Adam and Hawa This is an enemy to you. When it comes to the food of paradise, Allah subhanaw taala tells them both, both of you eat. Right. So the shoulders that Adam Alayhis Salam has a degree of responsibility over how up and this is how it is, Allah subhanaw taala has given men a degree of responsibility over over their wives, that a man cannot, for example, just be concerned about his fasting in his prayer. And he doesn't care whether his wife is able to pray or not, or praise or not, no, he he has that degree of responsibility to ensure that he provides

00:24:06 --> 00:24:15

protection and whatever that the wife needs in order to be able to fulfill her duty to her lord and also in order to

00:24:16 --> 00:24:19

uni any thrive in the world. Thing is that

00:24:22 --> 00:24:29

is that when it comes to for example, some religious matters, many men instead of

00:24:31 --> 00:24:59

instead of cooperating with their wives, or instead of encouraging their wives and supporting their wives in doing good things, they actually become the opposite. They begin to stop their wives, for example, from learning Quran, they begin to stop their wives from wearing the hijab. They begin to stop their wives from you know from from studying the religion and things like that. And this is the exact opposite of what they should be.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:06

Doing their responsibility is to ensure the Chapin does not get the better of their wife.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:16

Because look at what Allah subhanaw taala is telling other Minister know that this is an enemy to you and your wife, what does that mean? You have to protect yourself and you also have to protect your wife.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:30

You have to ensure that she is also saved. You cannot just be selfishly, you know, just protecting yourself looking after yourself. No, you have a degree of responsibility over your wife, also.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:45

Allah subhanaw taala has made the men awam and Calam doesn't just mean that he provides for food and drink and shelter. Guam also means that he has to provide for religious growth and religious fulfillment.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:51

So yeah, Adam Ozcan enter was illogical Jana.

00:25:52 --> 00:25:59

The second thing I want you to notice is that Allah subhanaw taala tells other medicinal and if you move from paradise for Cashcall, then you will suffer.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:44

And really, the fact is that in this world, there is suffering, compared to paradise in paradise, there is no suffering. So in the following verses in surah Taha Allah subhanaw taala says to other men who Salam, that in Halacha, Allah that you are fee ha, well, at Allah, indeed, it is promised for you in the in paradise, that you will not be hungry during, nor will be unclothed. In paradise, you will not experience any hunger. Why, because you can eat whatever you want, how much ever you want, anywhere that you want. And you also have the clothing of paradise available to you. You don't have to go make them yourself. One Nicola 12 movie, well, I told her, and indeed you will not be

00:26:44 --> 00:27:24

thirsty, they're in meaning in paradise, nor will you be hot from the sun Subhanallah in paradise, you will not be thirsty, why, because there is no heat. And if and there is so much drink available to you, you can drink anywhere, whatever that you desire, and you will not suffer, you will not be hot from the sun. Because there is no direct hot sun in paradise in the world, what happens in order to fulfill your needs, just the basic needs, such as food and drink and clothing, you have to be out in the sun, you have to work outside. And so many men, especially those who do like physical labor,

00:27:25 --> 00:27:31

look at how much heat they're exposed to just building roads, construction work,

00:27:32 --> 00:28:13

you know, basic things, even how much sun they're exposed to, just to be able to fulfill their needs and the needs of their families. And these verses show us that, essentially, human beings have four needs, right, they need food in order to remove hunger. Second, they need water to remove thirst. Third, they need clothing to cover their nakedness. And then fourth, they need shelter, to protect against the heat and the cold. So all of these needs are fulfilled in paradise. And if shaitan manages to remove you from Paradise, then you will lose all of these things, and you will have to work for them yourself in the world.

00:28:14 --> 00:29:04

And when you have to work yourself in the world for these things, then for the score, you will be in misery. This doesn't mean that it is a bad thing that a person is working hard to to fulfill these needs. No, it's not a bad thing. In fact, when a person works hard to provide Halal income, you know, to his family, there is reward in that when a person puts a morsel of food in his wife's mouth, even that is recorded as charity he's rewarded for that. Right. And, indeed, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam encouraged us in different ways that we you know, not beg, and we work hard in order to fulfill our needs. Right. So, it is noble, to to work in order to fulfill your worldly

00:29:04 --> 00:29:12

needs in a lawful way. However, it cannot be denied that all of this work is very difficult.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:16

It is tiring, it takes too much of your time.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:54

And it's tiring, not just physically, also mentally, in EVE a person, for example, works at a desk, right? They don't do any physical labor, the work at a desk. Is that work? Not tiring. It's mentally exhausting. Right. Why is it that people are working in the comfort of their offices, all right, but they get headaches, they get tired because that work is also difficult. So whether it is mental work or physical work, there is difficulty associated with it. There is anxiety also associated with it when you have to meet deadlines and then you're worried about making ends meet.

00:29:56 --> 00:30:00

All of this takes a toll on you. Right it's a

00:30:00 --> 00:30:08

exhausting. So this is the nature of this world. And when we experience any hardship, in the dunya, and we feel tired, you know, just looking after,

00:30:10 --> 00:30:44

you know, our basic needs, such as, you know, working in order to have an income, and then buying food with that money, and then bringing that food to your house, and then putting it away, and then cooking it, and then serving it to the family and then eating it and then managing the leftovers. When we experience all of this difficulty, this should remind us of our home paradise, where none of this difficulty exists, their food is brought to you

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

drink is brought to you.

00:30:48 --> 00:31:03

There is no work, no work, no anxiety, no difficulty in paradise. So when you experience difficulty in the world that should urge you to work even harder for your home in paradise.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:10

And it should remind you that you should not make you should not let your heart get attached to the dunya

00:31:12 --> 00:31:39

you know for example, you when you no matter how much you clean your kitchen, for instance, does it not get dirty? It does. You clean it it spotless, and then the next meal time it becomes messy again. So don't let your heart get attached to the kitchen. Attach your heart to the worship of Allah because that will bring you the home of paradise where you don't have to do any work where everything is perfect.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:44

And ask Allah subhanaw taala for Paradise. So

00:31:45 --> 00:32:02

this is the first thing that Allah subhanaw taala for warned Adam or any salon about his enemy shaitan Secondly, we learned that Allah subhanaw taala told Adam or his sunnah, while at the Colaba had the Shudra do not go near this tree

00:32:03 --> 00:32:49

and eat freely whatever that you want. Okay, no restrictions no rules. However, this one tree don't even go near it. Notice a lost parent it does not say that let the Akula min had the shadow do not eat from the street. No Allah's pantalla says do not even go near this tree in his stay away far away from it don't even go close to it. Why? Because when you go close to something that you're not allowed to do, then what happens? You begin to reason Oh, it's not that bad. Why am I not allowed to do this? This isn't that you know I don't see any problem with it. You begin to rationalize and you're no longer

00:32:50 --> 00:32:51


00:32:53 --> 00:33:20

any it doesn't seem that bad to you anymore. So, there comes a point where you also indulge alright so while at the Kaurava had he Shudra do not even go near this tree. When it comes to Zina. fornication ALLAH subhanaw taala does not say Allah does no do not commit Zina. Rather Allah subhanaw taala says let the Carabas Zina do not even go near Zina. And he do not even do those things that lead to Zina.

00:33:22 --> 00:33:28

Okay, so what was this tree now that Adam and Hawa were forbidden? From

00:33:30 --> 00:34:16

we don't know what tree it was any its name is not mentioned in the Quran or in the Hadith. And even if we knew the name, so what? It's not haram on us, right? It's not haram on us the only things that Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden on us in the world. Any in terms of plants are those which are poisonous, right? So because we're not allowed to kill ourselves, otherwise, any all foliage as long as it's edible in its it's permissible for us. So whether we know the name of that tree or not, it doesn't really make a difference, because it doesn't affect us. And secondly, this was a tree in paradise and Paradise is different from the world. Okay, so while at the Kaurava had his shadow.

00:34:18 --> 00:34:23

Now there's a question Why did Allah subhanaw taala forbid them from this tree?

00:34:24 --> 00:34:27

Why did Allah Subhana Allah forbid them from this tree?

00:34:29 --> 00:34:36

Is it that that tree was harmful? Any if they ate the fruit of that tree, it would be harmful for them?

00:34:37 --> 00:34:40

We don't know. We don't know

00:34:41 --> 00:35:00

if eating the fruit of that tree would be harmful for them. We don't know if there was, you know some something extraordinary about that tree because of which Allah subhanaw taala forbade them from eating it from going near it and frankly, it does not matter. It does not

00:35:00 --> 00:35:17

didn't matter whether we know what was it about that tree because of which Allah subhanaw taala forbade them from going near it. The main thing is that Allah subhanaw taala forbade them from going near that tree. And this prohibition was a test for them.

00:35:18 --> 00:35:34

This prohibition was a test for them, as is every other prohibition in our lives. When Allah subhanaw taala prohibits us from doing something, is it because if we do it will die? Like, for example, if Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden us from lying?

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

Is it that if we lie, our nose will become long? No, it doesn't happen.

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

It doesn't.

00:35:43 --> 00:35:48

If Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden us from committing Zina is it that we will get

00:35:50 --> 00:36:02

diseased right away or that we will die? Or that will suffer from a heart attack or something like that? No. There are many people who commit these sins and nothing bad happens to them.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:12

In fact, they're very happy. Right? So, it is not necessary that when Allah subhanaw taala prohibits us from doing something

00:36:13 --> 00:36:19

that we are, you know, being being protected against certain harm.

00:36:20 --> 00:36:20


00:36:22 --> 00:36:32

However, anything that Allah subhanaw taala does forbid us from there is wisdom behind it. Sometimes yes, there is harm that we are being protected against.

00:36:34 --> 00:36:34


00:36:35 --> 00:36:51

And other times there isn't. But at the end of the day, any prohibition is what it is a test for us a test as to whether we will obey Allah or we will obey our desires, we will obey shaitan

00:36:54 --> 00:37:37

so this was the main reason while at the crowbar had his Shudra do not go near this tree. This was a test for adamant Hauer and Allah subhanaw taala warn them further Konami, nobody mean then you will be of the wrongdoers meaning if you do go near this tree, then you will be of the wrongdoers and the volume is to play something where it does not belong. Okay. And it also means injustice. So, this shows is that when a person disobeyed Allah, what are they doing? They are harming themselves for the corner menial, burly mean, they're harming themselves. So the harm

00:37:38 --> 00:37:59

is not in eating something or doing a certain action. And he that action itself does not necessarily bring you harm. Like I mentioned earlier, that if a person for example, commits if a person lies, it doesn't mean that their nose will become long. No, it doesn't happen. But there is harm against oneself.

00:38:01 --> 00:38:22

How that you are disobeying Allah. And when you disobey Allah, then you're putting yourself in a lot of danger. This is ingratitude to Allah. This is putting yourself in a lot of danger and risk and distancing yourself from Allah azza wa jal, who created you with so much love, who are so merciful to you.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:27

So while at Aqaba had his Shudra first akuna minal halimi.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:39

Now here we see that Allah subhanaw taala addresses both Adam and Hawa, do not go near the tree, both of you, otherwise both of you will become wrongdoers.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:50

But when it comes to other matters, like know that this is your enemy, or dwell in paradise, Allah subhanaw taala only addresses Adam or a sinner.

00:38:51 --> 00:38:57

Right and not both of them. He says we are Adam autoscan and Tao zodiacal Jana Jannat Azcona.

00:38:58 --> 00:39:07

Right, when it comes to food, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't say for call, yeah, Adam, and there was Oh Dukkha No, Allah transferases for Kula both of you eat.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:16

So this means that when it comes to providing sukhna providing a home, this is a responsibility of the man and not the wife.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:26

It is the man's responsibility to provide a home to his wife, a home where she feels secure.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:51

Okay. And many people think that, you know, this is common in many cultures that, you know, the man himself does not provide for a home it has parents who will provide for the home. And as a result of that the woman is expected to live in a place where she does not feel secure, where she is Subhanallah any she is expected to wear hijab within her house because her brother in law is there.

00:39:52 --> 00:39:59

And then she's supposed to cook and clean and everything in her hijab. How is he supposed to feel secure? Oh,

00:40:00 --> 00:40:26

And then any anything she does, she's constantly criticized, why did you wash the dish this way, and we don't cook this way. And we don't clean this way. This is not fair to a woman, if a man is able to afford anything, then he should provide a proper home for his wife, that a proper home does not mean that it has to be a very fancy, expensive house, no whatever that his

00:40:28 --> 00:40:35

any whatever that he can easily afford. But it should be a place where you need she fields secure.

00:40:37 --> 00:40:53

She is able to live she feels at home, and a woman cannot feel at home. If she has to wear hijab inside of the house, she cannot feel at home, if she cannot, you know,

00:40:54 --> 00:41:01

do with her children what she thinks is best, or, you know, do in your life what she thinks is best.

00:41:02 --> 00:41:08

So Wascana autoscan and that was ultracold Jana, it is the man's responsibility to provide

00:41:09 --> 00:41:24

a home to his wife. But when it comes to food and drink, then like I mentioned earlier, that this is the right of both man and woman, any the man does not have preference over food, by virtue of being a man

00:41:26 --> 00:41:28

both both should have access to good food.

00:41:32 --> 00:42:11

And also, when it comes to the needs, the four basic needs, like I mentioned, the food, drink, clothing and shelter, this is also the man's responsibility to provide for himself his wife and also his children, because Allah subhanaw taala addresses admiration and when he says that do not let shikon expel you because then fattoush call you would suffer a loss transfer does not say that both you and Hawa will suffer, no you will suffer them, because then you will have to work in the world and you will have to provide for food and drink and clothing and shelter and it will all become very hard on you.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:30

So this shows that it is a man's responsibility. And if a woman for instance works to provide for her family, in the presence of her husband, this is entirely hynny any is an act of charity on her behalf. And she is

00:42:31 --> 00:43:14

rewarded for it. The husband is also rewarded for for for fulfilling his duty but the wife is is rewarded in a different way because it is it is an it is entirely an act of charity. on her part, she is not required to provide. And this shows us that when a woman has, for example, a source of income, she's not required to contribute to the family expenses to the household expenses. Many men expect that if a woman has a source of income, that she should you No go 5050 with him, or that she should buy the groceries with her money. That is not correct. Her money is hers, she is not required to spend on the family. It is the man who is required to spend on the family. Now it's

00:43:14 --> 00:43:38

understandable if the man is making certain sacrifices, so that the woman can work. Like for example, he is you know missing out on a work meeting, or he takes a day off, or he works a limited number of hours during the week so that he can be with the kids while the wife works. That of course, you need there should be any some kind of agreement as to how much you know,

00:43:39 --> 00:44:05

both parties how much income both parties will bring to the household expenses. But a man should never think that all my wife is working and her money. She can use herself or she can use for the family. And I don't have to provide anything to her. And many men make this mistake that for example, if their wife is working, they don't give her any any money.

00:44:06 --> 00:44:42

They say you have your own money. This is not right when a man gives money to his wife, so that she can buy some clothes for herself. Or that she can, you know, eat something nice. She can, you know, go get a facial, for example, anything like this, this is greatly rewardable For the men. So just because she has her own money, or maybe she has more money than you or maybe she has a better paying job than yours. It doesn't mean that the man does not have to provide for the woman he still has to it is his religious obligation.

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

Anyway, there's a number of lessons that we can take from this IRA. First of all, we learned about how Allah subhanaw taala bestowed such an immense blessing on both Adam and Hawa by making them dwell in paradise.

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

And then we see that other is Salam was not alone in paradise. He had his wife her work with her. And it is the Sunnah of it is the way of the prophets that they married. Right? Allah subhanaw taala tells us and sort of to learn that will occur the Otto Salallahu Salam in Publika with your own Allah home as word and whether the year that we sent messengers before you and we made for them wives and children.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:41

So the prophets had wives, they were married. So it is the Sunnah of the prophets to be married, and any other lesson and could be alone in paradise and enjoy the foods and other things in paradise but what's the fun in being alone?

00:45:43 --> 00:45:58

In you, for example, when you go out to eat, why do you go out with someone a friend or a sibling, spouse, child, someone why because when you have good food, you only enjoy it more when you have good company

00:45:59 --> 00:46:11

right. So, this companionship is a need that has been placed in human beings. We need one another. Right?

00:46:12 --> 00:46:20

You know the word insulin human being, The Linguist said that it is derived from the word on its own, to have familiarity,

00:46:21 --> 00:46:29

which to be sociable, which means that the human being by nature is sociable, by nature needs to socialize.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:34

Any there's benefit in being alone, absolutely.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:47

But there's also benefit in being with people. Now being with people doesn't mean that you have to be with them. 24/7 This is also a problem where for example,

00:46:48 --> 00:47:00

you know, newlyweds especially, they think that they have to be with one another 100% of the time, they have to eat together, they have to, you know, leave for work together, they have to come back together.

00:47:01 --> 00:47:27

If they're meeting someone that has to be together, you need, they think that they cannot have any alone time. Whether they cannot spend any time away from each other with someone else. And this is not healthy. This is not healthy at all. It's good to be with someone but it's also good to have your own personal time and personal space. Halwa Being alone is very important for the heart. Because that is where you

00:47:29 --> 00:47:31

have honest conversations with yourself.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:54

Where you you know, recognize your mistakes, where you are able to introspect, right, it's very important for growth. And when you have halwa when you are alone, then you are able to easily connect with Allah subhanaw taala the way that you cannot connect when people are around you.

00:47:55 --> 00:48:25

So you need this companionship of husband and wife. This is a beautiful blessing that Allah subhanaw taala has gifted humanity with and it has its benefits. So a person should not say that I'm never gonna get married. I don't ever want to get married. I don't think marriage is for me. Marriages are horrible. Men are horrible. Women are horrible. Don't say things like that. This is a sunnah of the prophets. And at the same time,

00:48:26 --> 00:48:32

while this companionship is good, it doesn't mean that you never allow yourself time to

00:48:34 --> 00:48:36

you know, be with your lord or be with yourself.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:38


00:48:39 --> 00:49:19

then we learn from this idea that Allah subhanaw taala tests us with different things, but the way that Allah's Pontarlier tests us any the tests are less than the prohibitions are less than the permissible things right? Otherwise, Sinha was told to eat whatever that he wanted. Her work was told to eat whatever that she wanted. There was only one rule one prohibition, just one tree, don't go near it. And just like that, when it comes to various drinks, for instance, in this world, the last panel turns out has allowed us to drink whatever that we want.

00:49:20 --> 00:49:48

Right? Sweet, sour, fizzy or not fermented or not. However, the only thing that is forbidden is what? When it when it is alcoholic. If for example, a drink ferments and it turns alcoholic, then call us you cannot drink that. Can you drink milk? Yes, you can. Can you drink juice? Yes you can. Can you drink water? Yes, you can. You can. There are so many options available to you. Just one thing is forbidden. That's it.

00:49:50 --> 00:49:52

Likewise, when it comes to food,

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

everything is permissible except for a few number of things that are impermissible for you to eat.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:12

Write among the cattle for example, all animals are permitted. You can eat all animals of livestock except for what? Just a couple, the donkey the pig. Alright, just a couple.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:20

So, some people view Islam as a religion full of restrictions. And that's not the case.

00:50:21 --> 00:50:45

That's not the case. There's very few restrictions that Allah subhanaw taala has given us, and why has he given those to us in order to test us? If he does not give us those restricts those restrictions, then how would it be known? Who is truly an obedient slave to Allah? And who is not? How would it be known that who is loyal to Allah Who loves Allah more than his own desire?

00:50:46 --> 00:51:09

So tests are inevitable, they're going to happen, but Allah subhanaw taala makes those tests very easy on us. Right, then we learned from this is that disobeying Allah is actually committing wrong against oneself, it is actually harming oneself. Then we also learned that we should not go near what is forbidden

00:51:10 --> 00:51:25

any don't even go close to it because if you go close to it, then you will overstep the bounds very easily. And going near something wrong looks like walking through the alcohol aisle and reading the names of different alcoholic drinks

00:51:26 --> 00:51:28

and then checking the prices

00:51:29 --> 00:51:32

and then looking at the variety.

00:51:33 --> 00:51:41

This is going near something that is unlawful. Allah tells us well at Aqaba, the shadow don't even go near it

00:51:42 --> 00:51:58

going near something haram looks like you know coming close to it in terms of proximity and he being physically close to it, witnessing it witnessing other people do it or have it talking about it.

00:51:59 --> 00:52:02

Okay, learning different things about it.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:08

Because then the wrong whatever I must Pantone has forbidden will become

00:52:09 --> 00:52:57

any, it will be normalized for you. Right? You will not feel that there is any problem with it. You will not feel that it's that bad of a thing. So let acaba de Shahdara, meaning do not even go near what is forbidden. In the next verse, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that as a Lahoma shaitan are unhappy but shaitan caused them to slip out of it for Raja Houma Makana fee and remove them from that condition in which they had been will call Nabil to borrow lukewarm liberal dinner I do. And we said go down all of you as enemies to one another one accom fill out of the Mr. Koran, one Mata on Illa hain. And you will have upon the earth a place of settlement and provision for a time.

00:52:59 --> 00:53:05

So Allah subhanaw taala tells us for as a little misshapen or unhappy shape on caused them to slip from it.

00:53:07 --> 00:53:17

Any shape on caused them to slip out of it. Okay, so this tells us that shape on your knee IBLEES came to Adam and Hawa

00:53:18 --> 00:53:19


00:53:20 --> 00:53:44

shaytaan was successful in making them in causing them to be removed from paradise. Remember, Allah subhanaw taala told Adam really soon that this is your enemy and the enemy of your wife, so do not let him remove you from paradise. Allah's parents, Allah tells us here as Allahumma shaitan or Anna shaitan was successful in removing them from paradise.

00:53:46 --> 00:53:56

How? By making them disobey Allah by making them do the deed, which caused them to be expelled from paradise.

00:53:57 --> 00:54:01

Now for as Allahumma as Allah is to cause someone to slip

00:54:02 --> 00:54:04

and fall, then Lahoma shaitana and her

00:54:05 --> 00:54:09

this means the Shudra and also Jana

00:54:10 --> 00:54:12

and he caused them to slip

00:54:13 --> 00:55:00

for from it meaning from Paradise, and he he made them commit an error. So they slipped, and they were now out of paradise, or as a Lahoma a shaitan ha ha refers to the tree and he on account of it he caused them to slip on account of it on account of the forbidden tree. How by making them eat of the of the forbidden tree as a result of which they were both removed from paradise for L Raja Houma min. McAfee look at a loss. Look at what a loss pantallas has over here. He does not say 100 mominul Jana, he caused them to be removed from paradise. No, he says he caused them to be

00:55:00 --> 00:55:22

removed, Moammar Qaddafi from all that they were in, because in Jana, they weren't just in Ghana, they had food they had drink, they had the clothing, the garments of Paradise, and they had so many other any comforts in paradise. So he, he got them removed from all of them.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:28

Now notice, it does not say over here that

00:55:30 --> 00:55:33

Chopin caused her work to slip.

00:55:35 --> 00:55:46

Or shaitan caused Adam to slip Allah subhanaw taala says he caused both of them to slip, which means that both of them Adam and Hawa both made the mistake of obeying shaitan.

00:55:48 --> 00:56:21

In other religions, it is considered that Hawa is the one who slipped and then she also caused Adam to slip. She's the one who convinced Adam to eat of the fruit of the tree. So they blame her, but this is not what we learned from the Quran. Both of them made the mistake both were at fault. Okay, both were responsible for the choices that they made. Now, there is a question how exactly could shaytaan come inside of Jana? Oh,

00:56:23 --> 00:56:34

because Adam Rennison M is being tested. And Allah subhanaw taala allowed shaytaan to enter Jannah in order to mislead, sorry, in order to

00:56:36 --> 00:56:47

ne try his best to convince Adam and Hawa to disobey Allah. Because Adam or SLM and Hawa, both of them needed that experience before coming into the world.

00:56:48 --> 00:56:50

Now there's a question Did,

00:56:52 --> 00:56:57

did shaitan come into paradise? As a snake?

00:56:58 --> 00:57:05

As a snake? No. This is in the Christian in the biblical account. This is not what the Quran tells us.

00:57:07 --> 00:57:12

Now, in surah Taha Allah subhanaw taala tells us how shaytaan caused them to slip.

00:57:16 --> 00:57:21

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in surah Taha for Wes was that LA Hashem eternal

00:57:22 --> 00:57:31

folk for West wasa LA has shaytani kala Yeah, the mu * a De Luca Allah shedule rattle holy war mole Killa. Yeah, Bella.

00:57:33 --> 00:57:47

Che Pon? whispered to Adam. Okay. And he said, Oh, Adam, Shall I inform you about the tree of eternity, and a kingdom that will never ever become old?

00:57:48 --> 00:57:57

Would you like to know? So first of all, we learned the Chapin did worse, lesser to other money center. And what's wasa is what

00:57:59 --> 00:58:15

thought that Trayvon puts into our heart, right into our mind was was a means to whisper. So he was present. And the nature of what's WESA is that it comes again and again. Again, and again. Like for example, you are

00:58:17 --> 00:58:18

you are

00:58:19 --> 00:58:24

praying salah, okay. And all of a sudden you have a thought?

00:58:25 --> 00:58:29

Did I turn off the stove? Did I lock the front door?

00:58:30 --> 00:58:49

And you say no, no, forget about it. I'm praying right now. It's okay. Not a big deal. But then what happens? That thought comes back, it comes back it comes back again and again. This is the nature of Wes was that it comes again and again. And sometimes this was was that is what about doing something that is wrong.

00:58:51 --> 00:59:03

So shaitan whispered to Adam and his son, Adam was was that to Adam? Shall I tell you about the tree of eternity, and a kingdom that will never ever become old.

00:59:05 --> 00:59:20

So basically, he began doing what was said to Adam really so now that the only reason why you have been forbidden from this tree is because it's the tree of eternity. If you eat its fruit, you will become a turtle.

00:59:21 --> 00:59:30

You will become an immortal and you will have a kingdom that will never age any you will forever remain here.

00:59:32 --> 00:59:37

Subhan Allah shaytaan does that to us also sometimes where he

00:59:38 --> 00:59:40

tells us that something bad is good for us.

00:59:42 --> 00:59:43

And if we do it,

00:59:44 --> 00:59:57

it'll be fun. If we do it, we'll enjoy something. And that was was a comes again and again. Now there's two types of Wes was first there was was that that is related to desires

00:59:58 --> 00:59:59

and the second

01:00:00 --> 01:00:06

is what was said that is related to doubts. Okay, so sometimes through temptation,

01:00:08 --> 01:00:18

and he he, he puts tempting thoughts in our mind, again and again and again. So that we're tempted to think about what is forbidden to think about doing what is forbidden.

01:00:19 --> 01:00:28

And then thinking turns into talking about it into searching about it into, you know, actually going and getting it.

01:00:29 --> 01:00:58

So, he does what was said to us with regard to our desires, then he altered us was was said to us in regard to doubts, saying things like, Oh, what if Allah is not there? What if this Islam is not true? What if? What if there is no day of judgment? So, these kind of literally obsessive thoughts, right, because this is the nature of was was it becomes obsessive, again and again and again. Then what happens? Eventually it affects the behavior.

01:00:59 --> 01:01:32

So in total, our love is 2021 Allah subhanaw taala tells us that for worse was a little mushy Tano shaitan whispered to them, Leo, but the Allahumma my warrior in whom I'm in so it Hema, to make apparent to them, that which was concealed from them or their private parts, will call a man or how come out of bukhoma and heard the shutter? And he said, Your Lord did not forbid you this tree INLA and Hakuna Mala cane otaku, nominal holidaying, except that you become angels or become of the immortal.

01:01:33 --> 01:01:44

So we learn from these verses, and out of that, first of all, shaitan whisper to both of them, both Adam and Hawa for us was a Lahoma shaitan.

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

And why? Why did he do that? What was the reason? Because he wanted to,

01:01:53 --> 01:02:01

he wanted that there, that their clothing of paradise should be removed from them, and that their nakedness should be should be revealed.

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

Any, for any the human being is very different from the rest of the creatures in the world. Right, the rest of the creatures are such that they come with their clothes, but the human being does not come into the world with his clothes. Right? And in the clothing that we wear, there is honor and dignity for us, right protection for us, and also an expression of creativity. Right. And this is something with which Allah subhanaw taala has actually favored human beings over others. But shaitan was so jealous that he wanted that even the codes of paradise should be removed from them, and that they should become naked.

01:02:45 --> 01:02:49

Leave the Obadiah Lahoma warrior and who am and so it Hema.

01:02:50 --> 01:03:06

And then he said to them, that the only reason why Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden you from this tree is Sudan is, is so that you don't become angels or eternal. He's making them think bad about Allah.

01:03:07 --> 01:03:11

That Allah does not want you to become angels. Allah does not want you to become immortals.

01:03:12 --> 01:03:15

And then we see that he's lying to them.

01:03:16 --> 01:03:20

Any a human being is supposed to be a human being a human being does not become an angel.

01:03:21 --> 01:03:25

Right? And hold is only in Jannah to hold.

01:03:27 --> 01:03:41

Eternity is only in the garden of eternity. And right now, otherwise, Santa was not meant to have eternity. Right. So he caused Adam and Hawa to become greedy for something that was not meant for them.

01:03:42 --> 01:03:59

And it's amazing. This is what triathlon does to us. Also, he makes us eager and desire, things that are not meant for us. Sometimes things that are not realistic for us. Practical, write things that we cannot have. Like for example, he makes us jealous of the fact that we are

01:04:01 --> 01:04:04

not the older sibling, we are the younger one.

01:04:06 --> 01:04:33

Is this something that can ever be resolved? Can you ever become the older sibling? No, you can't, you will forever be the younger one. Right? But if shaitan makes you dwell on this, any you're constantly upset, you're constantly unhappy. Shaitan makes us unhappy about the way that our physical body is the size of our teeth, the shape of our nose, our height, our physique, the color of our skin.

01:04:34 --> 01:04:59

And these are things that we have to accept, right? Indeed, these are things that we cannot change. But shaitan makes us so unhappy with them, that we go to lengths in order to change the creation of Allah. There are things that we can change. Like for example, if there's extra hair, you remove that, right. If the teeth are not in order, you can you can get them to be straight, for instance. So there is somewhat

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

In no control that Allah has given us somewhat liberty that Allah has given us you want long hair, that's how you keep them. If you want them to be shorter, you cut them, but the thickness of your hair, you don't have control over that. Right? The texture of your hair, you don't have control over that. So there is many things over which Allah subhanaw taala has not given us control. And what does shikon want us to do? He wants us to be eager for what we cannot have, what is not meant for us. So that we then think bad about Allah

01:05:30 --> 01:05:39

and that we are unhappy, and that we go towards haram in order to somehow fulfill that void that shaitan has put inside of us.

01:05:41 --> 01:06:05

Then we see that che pond did not just do us wasa we learn what cause some of whom are in the local myelomonocytic Lemina NALSA hain intradural, Aarav IBLEES least set to them, at least swore to them kasama Houma and he said, Indeed I am to you Lemina NALSA Hain among those who are sincere.

01:06:07 --> 01:06:09

And he I am, I want the best for you.

01:06:11 --> 01:06:21

You know, there's nothing in it for me, I'm just here for you, I want the best for you. And I swear, if you eat of the fruit of this tree, you will become an angel you will become an immortal.

01:06:22 --> 01:06:32

So shaitan was the first one to take a false oath to lie and swear to say by Allah, and then lie after that.

01:06:33 --> 01:06:55

And you know, other money Salah, the reason why he believed it bliss is because it leaves us the name of Allah. And otherwise Salah was too naive to think any he was too innocent. And when I say naive, he was innocent. He never thought that someone could lie in the name of Allah.

01:06:56 --> 01:07:00

And this is the way of the believers, they never think that someone would lie in the name of Allah.

01:07:03 --> 01:07:44

So shaitan lied, he swore by Allah. And he caused Adam and his salam to forget what Allah subhanaw taala told him so clearly, as Allah subhanaw taala tells us and Sudha will look at our hidden either Adam and capoue. financier, while I'm Nigel who asthma, that we had taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot, either Melissa and forgot any, even though last month I told him so clearly, he forgot in the moment that that tree was forbidden, that Shaitan is the enemy. Right? That if I listened to shaitan, he will remove me from paradise.

01:07:45 --> 01:08:07

But other than Islam for God, and this is very human human beings forget. And you know, another reason why the Roma said insan the human being is called Insan is because the word Insan is derived from NIS Ian, which means to forget. So it is in the nature of human beings to forget

01:08:09 --> 01:09:00

Subhanallah sometimes you set reminders for yourself. You read the reminder. And yet you forget, there are things that you know so well. But in the moment you forget, this is human. So Adam Raisina did not deliberately disobey Allah. This is very important for us to know. Otherwise esalaam did not violate the limits. Deliberately, daringly knowingly, no, it happened accidentally. How? Because he forgot. In the moment he forgot. And this is completely human. What happened then for Roger Houma, mimma canovee Shaitan got them both removed from all that they were in. We learned through trial and error off Allah subhanaw taala says For the law Houma Bill rule, so he made them fall through

01:09:00 --> 01:09:01


01:09:04 --> 01:09:43

For Lambada cause shadow data, and when they tasted of the tree, by that law, who myself or to whom their private parts became apparent to them, whatever you call Josefa and Urla, Hammermill were up in Jana. And they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of paradise, one other humara Buma and their Lord called to them and how Kumar until coma Shudra did I not forbid you from that tree? Will Akula coma in the shaitana la coma or the womb will be in? And did I not tell you that shaytaan is to you a clear enemy? So we learned in these verses that shaitan made them fall through deception.

01:09:45 --> 01:09:59

And he he gradually through deception, made them fall in he didn't come and outright say to them eat of the fruit of the tree. No, he went gradually first he did was was a nail

01:10:00 --> 01:10:36

Again, whisper. Then he came openly and kasama Huma, he swore in the Name of Allah, then he tempted them through something that they desired Subhanallah so, so through deception, who rule and who is to deceive someone, and he presented himself as a nalsar, as someone who's very sincere, someone who wants the best for you, someone who wants good for you. But in reality, he was their enemy. Right, and this is how some enemies are, they come in the form of a friend, they come in the form of someone who really wants good for you.

01:10:37 --> 01:11:13

But then they get you in trouble and then disappear. So he made them fall through deception. And part of this deception was that he swore to them, he lied to them. And, you know, some scholars said, that men hada Anna, below her, Donna, that if someone deceives us by using the name of Allah, then of course we would be deceived. Right? And we learn in the Hadith that almost Minoo little rune karimun any the believer is a little in a very innocent, all right, any, he

01:11:14 --> 01:11:16

the believer because he is

01:11:17 --> 01:11:20

trustworthy himself, he thinks that others are also trustworthy,

01:11:21 --> 01:11:44

right, he doesn't, he doesn't think bad of others. And if someone is swearing in the Name of Allah, then the believer, you know, he wouldn't think that someone is lying. So this was the deception of Iblees, that he used lies, and in particular, lying in the name of Allah. And that is how he deceived them through

01:11:46 --> 01:11:50

unity through deception, for the Lahoma Bill rule,

01:11:51 --> 01:12:21

and when they tasted, fallen mother cause shadow, when they tasted the tree and eat the fruit of the tree. They didn't even eat that much. Both Adam and Hawa ate just a little bit in just barely put the fruit in their mouth, right away what happened, their clothing of Paradise was removed, because they were going to be now removed from paradise. And whatever was of Paradise was was not going to be taken away from them. And part of what was off paradise was the clothing that they were wearing.

01:12:22 --> 01:13:09

And then that nakedness, other than Hawa both immediately began covering themselves with the leaves of paradise, they began breaking leaves and covering themselves. And this shows us that higher shyness, modesty is in the nature of human beings. It is an in the nature of human beings. Then what happened? Allah subhanaw taala called out to both of them that did not forbid you from this tree, Did I not tell you that shaytaan is a clear enemy to you. So this means that Adam and Hawa both of them made made a mistake, right? In surah Taha las Panatela told us for our column in her for Akella minha Ferber that Lahoma. So, to whom or what have you call Josefa nila, Hema we were a Killian

01:13:09 --> 01:13:12

world saw the mural boohoo for her.

01:13:13 --> 01:13:18

So Adam disobeyed his Lord and aired and he made a mistake.

01:13:19 --> 01:13:20


01:13:21 --> 01:13:30

look at how shaitan persisted until he made them disobey Allah and commit such a huge mistake.

01:13:31 --> 01:13:31


01:13:33 --> 01:13:48

many, many people think that how we ate the fruit and then she offered it to Adam. But that is not the case because Allah subhanaw taala told us over here that both of them ate, both of them tasted right And shaitan convinced both of them.

01:13:49 --> 01:14:01

Now, in a hadith in Sahih Bukhari we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said that we're not for Bani Israel need would not decay, and were it not for for Hawa, no woman would ever betray her husband.

01:14:03 --> 01:14:06

So what is that betrayal that the prophets of Allah who was talking about

01:14:07 --> 01:14:11

that room I explained that this was her not reminding him

01:14:13 --> 01:14:24

this was her not reminding him. Anyone other Rene Sinha was getting convinced by shaitan Hawa did not remind them

01:14:25 --> 01:14:29

she did not any give him any Naseeha

01:14:30 --> 01:14:34

okay. And sometimes what happens is that when you

01:14:35 --> 01:14:39

if you're alone on your own, it's very easy for people to trick you.

01:14:41 --> 01:14:49

But if someone is with you, the two of you together then it's not easy for others to trick you. Why? Because there's two minds over here.

01:14:51 --> 01:14:59

So if one is being spoken to, and the other is watching, and the other has, you know this feeling that no This doesn't make sense this is wrong, then they should not remain sigh

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


01:15:01 --> 01:15:43

they should advise their friend that no, this is not okay, we can do this. Right. And this is also the role of the wife, especially, that when she sees that her husband is doing something wrong. She shouldn't just say, Oh, it's his choice. What can I do? Many women, any, they're happy, they're perfectly fine with their husbands, you know, taking a haram loan, for example. And the husband is taking the Haram loan for the sake of his family. Right? And the wife says, oh, it's his decision, what can I do? No, it is your job to remind him it is your job to urge him that you are happy with less, you are okay. With a smaller place as long as it is halal. That you don't want what is haram?

01:15:44 --> 01:15:55

That is your responsibility. Don't just sit, you know, don't just stand on the side and watch. No, your job is to step in and remind.

01:15:57 --> 01:16:14

So other than Hawa, both of them made the mistake. All right, each made the choice to eat the fruit of the tree. And then they were both removed from Paradise Allah's pantherella says we're calling a beautiful barrel dokkan liberal DiNardo. And we said get down as enemy to one another.

01:16:15 --> 01:16:28

And he get down from paradise. And this is a further proof that this garden that they were in was not in the world, it was actually paradise. So they were told, get down from it.

01:16:29 --> 01:16:31

And you are enemy to one another,

01:16:32 --> 01:16:53

who is an enemy to one another, people are enemy to one another. And also people are enemy to shaitan and shaitan is enemy to people. Right. And when peep when there is enmity, what will happen, there will be bloodshed, and there will be corruption.

01:16:54 --> 01:17:07

And that is exactly what the angels mentioned. Right. And so now this is what we see in the world, that there's enmity among people as a result of which there is bloodshed and, and also corruption.

01:17:09 --> 01:17:11

But the other meaning is that

01:17:12 --> 01:17:27

here the enmity is between humans and And shaitan and that enmity is mentioned many places in the Quran. Allah tells us and suitable curve for that. If you do know who were the DRI Yetta who Olia Indonesia whom glaucoma I don't

01:17:28 --> 01:17:32

the chatline is an enemy to you in the shaitana likoma I don't want

01:17:33 --> 01:17:42

so shaitan is an enemy to men. When it comes out of the most the Koran Juan Mata en la Hain and you will have in the earth it must occur

01:17:43 --> 01:18:09

a place of stay warmer town and enjoyment Illa Hain for some time in a you're not going to remain in the world forever. You will be in there for some time. And while you are on the earth that is your most the car was the car is the place of Corolla Corolla as in to remain to become still true to remain in one place. So this world is our home while we are here.

01:18:10 --> 01:18:41

All right, because minha kala canal como fi Henri de como minha, neurological Tarlton okra as Allah Subhana Allah tells us in surah Taha that from from the world we created you in it, we shall return you meaning when you die your bodies will go back into the earth. And then from it we will bring you out another time human meaning we will resurrect you from the earth and in the world is your most the Kawamata also enjoyment Illa Hain for some time, and he not forever

01:18:43 --> 01:19:29

insulted or off Allah subhanaw taala says Allah beautiful Baroda calm liberal DiNardo welcome Phil. It was the cottonwood Matera de la haine kala V had the Yona he said in it meaning in the world you shall live where he had to move tuna and in it you shall die. Women had to hold June and from it you shall be brought out. Now there is a question was another man who said I'm sent to the world as a punishment for his sin. No other when Islam was meant to go to the world anyway, in Niger Ilan, fill out the Khalifa. But he was before being sent to the world. He was placed in paradise for some time so that he would know his enemy and he would know how his enemy pursues him. And he knows what his

01:19:29 --> 01:20:00

real home is, which is paradise. Right. So otherwise, Suriname and Hawa are not sent to the world as a punishment. No. The other thing is that we learn in these verses that Allah subhanaw taala forgave either money his sin, right? Other one is Salam repented, and Allah subhanaw taala accepts it accepted his repentance. And then again, we learned that Allah's Panthro said, Cool now you told me Nigeria so he was sent to the world after being forgiven. He was evicted from removed for

01:20:00 --> 01:20:09

In Paradise after committing the wrong then he asked forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala Allah forgave him, and then he was sent to the world.

01:20:11 --> 01:20:21

Now there's a number of things that we learned from these verses, first of all, we see how she upon is a clear enemy to us and how shaitan uses deception and lies, and worse was

01:20:22 --> 01:20:40

in order to gradually lead us towards acts of disobedience, then we see how shaytaan causes us to rationalize sin. And he uses temptation, right, He adorns beautifies what is wrong for us, so that we get trapped?

01:20:42 --> 01:20:50

And then we see that it is very important for us that we avoid a sin and disobedience, because this is how shaitan

01:20:51 --> 01:21:40

This is how shaitan has advantage over us. Right? Now, does this mean that we will never ever commit sin? Because if our father, he made a mistake, then we are even more likely to make a mistake? Right? If in Jannah, he made a mistake than in the world, we're more likely to make a mistake. So yes, the prophets of Allah who are incident told us that Kulu buddy, Adam Hapa, all of the children of Adam make mistakes. But after making mistakes, what is necessary? Will Hyrule Hopper in a toe baboon and the Best of those who make mistakes are those who repent. So it is possible for human beings to make mistakes, all right. But the main thing is that after you make mistakes, turn back to

01:21:40 --> 01:21:50

Allah and seek forgiveness. There is another Hadith in which we learn that indeed, Allah has pardoned from my ummah, and he pardoned by OMA for alhaja

01:21:52 --> 01:22:31

an error, a mistake that you make by accident, when Sen, and forgetfulness and if you do something wrong, because you forgot, and also what they are compelled to do. You need what they're forced to do, not by their own choice, but they're forced to do so Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven the ummah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam for that. The main thing is that we should never intentionally knowingly disobey Allah, any when you're when you're about to do something wrong and you know, or this is haram. This is haram, and I should not be doing it. But you say, No, I'll do it anyway. This is the problem.

01:22:32 --> 01:22:41

Otherwise, Saddam did not eat the fruit in this manner. No, he ate, because he forgot in the moment for NESEA he forgot.

01:22:43 --> 01:22:59

So if a person forgets, and does something wrong, that that case is different. But if a person knowingly deliberately does something wrong, that is a problem. Like for example, if you forget it is lower time.

01:23:01 --> 01:23:02

And you don't pray.

01:23:03 --> 01:23:12

Did you do something wrong? Yes, you did. What is the solution? The moment you remember you pray. Right. But if you know it is lower time.

01:23:13 --> 01:23:15

And you know, you're supposed to pray.

01:23:16 --> 01:23:19

And you deliberately you choose to leave your prayer.

01:23:21 --> 01:23:30

Is that the same? No, it's not the same it is very different. It is a major major major sin a very, very serious crime Subhan Allah. So

01:23:32 --> 01:23:53

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, that Willis Alikum generic and female are thought to be lacking Madame mudit Globacom that you are not responsible any, there is no blame on you. Okay, there is no blame on you for what you do out of error. But what your hearts intend that is something that you are blameworthy for.

01:23:55 --> 01:24:11

If a person knowingly, deliberately consciously it he makes the decision to eat something haram to leave Salah to leave an obligatory faster without a genuine excuse. These are all very serious crimes.

01:24:13 --> 01:24:36

So we see that other men who Salam is ne tested all right and he learns something very important from this experience. And then Allah subhanaw taala sends him to the world. But another really Salman Hawa are removed from paradise. Is there some wisdom in that? Yes, there is.

01:24:37 --> 01:24:38

First of all,

01:24:40 --> 01:24:57

we see that either Maria Salaam is tested, right and then he asked a las Panatela for forgiveness. And when a person makes a mistake, and they ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness than what happens there. They come even closer to Allah or xojo

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

right they come even

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

closer to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Now, when it comes to West Wasa, what is the nature of West WISA? How does shaytaan you know, tempt us and US West was against us. I want to talk a little bit about that, but inshallah we will do that in the next class, because it's a very important concept to understand how the shaytaan do was was, in which ways does he do this was a and how can we fight what's wasa? How can we counter that? Inshallah we'll talk about that in the next class on Friday, Inshallah, Baraka lofi Khan. Subhan Allah who will be handed a shadow Allah Illa illa Anta Astok Hirokawa to Lake wa salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
