Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:33--> 00:01:31

Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish. Rahi Sabri were silly emri wash Lola rock data melissani of cuckoo Kali Allahumma. The Kirby was sadly Sonny was close to him at the Colby Armenia robot charlamagne surah earlier Imran inshallah will begin from IRA number 104 one of the comin Come on Matan. And let there be arising from you, Muslims a nation, yet the owner Elon hide, inviting to all that is good. Meaning all Muslims, you should be an oma, you should be a group of people who call everyone to what is good. You see the word oma is derived from the word Ummah, Amalia omo is to direct oneself towards a

00:01:31--> 00:02:26

certain goal towards a certain aim, and then endeavor to attain it. So an oma is actually a distinct group of people that have the same goal. So as Muslims, as a group of people as an oma, what is it that unites you? What is it that brings you together? Is it your race? No. Is it the language that you speak? No? Is it? Is it the food that you eat? Is it your geographical location? No, what brings you together is the fact that you have the same goal. And that is to please Allah subhanaw taala. And here as an oma, what is your goal, you're the owner a little higher, that your cause is that you call people to what is good. So as Muslims, you should be a people of the same cause, that you call

00:02:26--> 00:03:13

everyone to goodness, you call one another, to what is good, you call those who are from you to what is good and those who are other than you also to what is good. And then welter coming Come on Matan, this is also understood as that, that from among you Muslims, there should be a certain group of people who are dedicated to this cause, meaning who are dedicated to calling people to what is good. So as Muslims, as you know, for every individual, you know, this is a responsibility, meaning as a part of the Muslim oma, every single one of us is responsible to call people to what is good, according to our knowledge and according to our capacity, but then from among Muslims, there are

00:03:13--> 00:04:02

those who who are dedicated to this cause and these are people of knowledge, and what is it that you should be calling people to what is good? Now what is a higher Koran Israel Quran is what is what is good and everything that the Quran calls us to invites us to, is also what is good, so all works of righteousness, call people to that way. Madonna Bill Maher, roofie way and hohner Anil Mancha in joining what is right and forbidding What is wrong? What Allah eco homeboy Mosley Hoon and those will be the successful. Now here we are told that Walter Coleman Come on matters that a segment of you should be dedicated to this cause. And what is it three things you have to do? First of all,

00:04:02--> 00:04:53

call people to what is good. Secondly, command what is maruf and thirdly, forbid from what is Mancha. Now what is maruf is what is recognized as something good, it is something good meaning it is accepted as something good. It is acceptable to the human conscience. It is accepted by the religion of Allah. So you should command what is good, and Mancha is the exact opposite of that. It is what is rejected because it is known to be bad, meaning the human conscience finds it repulsive. And it is also rejected by the law of Allah subhanaw taala. So you Muslims should be commanding what is right and forbidding what is wrong, meaning when you find someone unaware, you see that someone

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

is doing something wrong, and it's very obvious that they're unaware, then tell them inform them.

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

When you see that someone has forgotten than remind them, when you see that someone is making a mistake, then help them. Don't be a bystander. Step up, come forward offer help. So the purpose of commanding what is right and forbidding what is wrong is not to pass judgment. It is not to condemn or to cancel people, it is actually to uplift one another, it is to maintain justice, it is to help one another. So, it must be done from a place of compassion, not from a place of judgment and condemnation. And this means that the manner in which we command what is right and forbid what is wrong, that manner should also be correct. And remember that there are certain adab there are

00:05:45--> 00:06:29

certain etiquette when it comes to commanding what is right and forbidding what is wrong. The first etiquette is that a person must have a class, meaning a person must command what is right for bid what is wrong from a place of sincerity, meaning do this for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala don't do this out of revenge, don't do this, you know, out of jealousy, or out of anger for other people, or in order to belittle them or in order to exert your knowledge or your spiritual superiority over them know, if you are commanding what is right forbidding what is wrong, then let this be sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala secondly, a person must only command what is right and forbid

00:06:29--> 00:07:13

what is wrong, if they have knowledge, knowledge of what knowledge of the matter that they are commanding off or forbidding from, and this has certain knowledge, and if a person does not have that knowledge, then they should remain quiet, then they should ask the people of knowledge, then they should learn themselves first, before they go on preaching of things that they don't even have knowledge of. And then thirdly, if a person is commanding what is right forbidding what is wrong, then they must have understanding of people, what does that mean? Meaning they should understand people as in they should have knowledge of the circumstances of the person whom they are, you know,

00:07:13--> 00:07:57

commanding of what is right or forbidding from what is wrong. So, for instance, if you go and tell someone that you know what, this is not the right manner of prayer, this is, you know, this is not the correct way of performing Salah, then you should know first before telling them that, that are they, you know, did they, for example, recently embraced Islam, did they just, you know, begin to learn how to pray, are they still learning, and then has someone you know already told them is someone already teaching them, so you should be aware of their circumstances. Because if you you know, out of nowhere, you know, you know, you go and start telling them about, you know, this is not

00:07:57--> 00:08:42

right, and you should be praying like this, and so on and so forth, then they will feel overwhelmed, they will feel judged. And if someone is already teaching them, then let them do their job, don't interfere. And then this includes, you know, advising people at the right time at the right place. And also, if you know that someone has already advised you know them, then then do not pester them because less thoroughly him be more cited. And you should also know, you know, whether you're stopping someone from wrong is going to lead them to a greater wrong or not. And if you feel that if you stop them, and they're going to get worse than it's better to, you know, refrain. So. So this is

00:08:42--> 00:09:26

the third attempt that you should have understanding of the people that you are advising. Fourthly, be gentle, and, and adopt good manners. Meaning Be polite, be courteous, because if you show anger, if you show judgment, and you make people feel like they're nothing, then you're causing more damage, and then number five, have patience and composure, take time to get your point across and be prepared for a backlash and be patient in response to that. Don't turn that into an argument. Don't turn that into a fight, because this is not about the ego anyway. So these are just some add up. This is not an exhaustive list, just some etiquette that we should be aware of. And I think the most

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

important etiquette over here is off knowledge that only advise people if you know for short, sometimes what happens is that we have heard things on the internet. And we have, you know, read random things and based on that we think that we are great scholars of Islam. And then we think that we have the right to you know, you know, advise people and condemn them and judge them and tell them how long how long how long it cetera. So be very careful yet morona Bill Maher roof way and hohner Anil Mancha and remember that command

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

What is right forbidding What is wrong? This is a sign of Amen. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever among you sees an evil, then let him stop it with his hand. And whoever is not able to do that, then let him stop it with his tongue. And if someone is not able to do that, then at least with his heart, and that is the weakest of faith. So the fact is that as human beings, we are not perfect. There are times when we are blind to our own, you know, own mistakes. And if we say things like, you know, to each their own, and don't give advice, and you know, mind your own business, we're basically saying that we should accept everything. And if that is the case, then how

00:10:40--> 00:11:25

would you distinguish between fairness and cruelty? Would there be any difference between right and wrong? It would there be any right and would there be any wrong if we were to accept everything? Allah subhanaw taala has revealed a law a book that is not to be ignored, it is supposed to be followed, and we see that all over the world there are different shades of oppression, of injustice of evil. So we cannot, you know, remain silent, we have a social responsibility to a religious obligation to help one another to guide one another. And yes, it is difficult to take feedback, it is very painful to receive criticism, but remember that the believer is supposed to be a mirror for

00:11:25--> 00:12:08

another believer, meaning you honestly tell one another what needs to be fixed. So when we see in our reflections in these mirrors, something that needs fixing, then let us not punch the mirror and break it. Let us you know, be grateful for the fact that we have realized. So Mr. Bill maroof nahi, Anil Mancha, those who do that, look at the ayah Allah subhanaw taala says, Allah iica, whom will mostly hone in is those who are successful. So success is for those people who do this job, who command what is right, who forbid what is wrong, there is no success without it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when sin is done in the earth, He who sees it and disapproves

00:12:08--> 00:12:53

of it will be taken like one who was not present, but he who is not present and yet approves of it will be like Him who witnessed it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that if any person is among the people in his midst, he does act of disobedience. And even though they're able to make him change, meaning they're able to stop him, yet they do not stop him, then Allah subhanaw taala will smite all of them with a punishment before they die. And this is something that is very frightening, that if someone is doing something wrong, we cannot turn a blind eye over there, we have to do something to help them to stop them to guide them, because sooner or later the effect

00:12:53--> 00:13:44

will also reach us it will impact us. So we have to be concerned for one another just as we are concerned for ourselves. Well after Qunu can Latina tougher Rocco and do not be like the ones who became divided with Tella fu and deferred mimbar the merger a whole big net after the clear proves had come to them. What Ola ecola home either on our lien, and those will have a great punishment, Allahu Akbar, invite to what is good command what is right forbid what is wrong, but do not become divided. Yes, you will have differences, but do not become enemies. Are you Muslims? And then the thing is that when people don't come in what is right, when when people don't forbid what is wrong,

00:13:44--> 00:14:34

then there are divisions because if oppression is being committed, and you don't stop it, then what's going to happen? There will be you know, those who are who who are going to continue in their oppression. And there are those who are going to constantly be oppressed. So stop this oppression speak up don't just be a bystander, we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that my people will experience what the bunny is not experienced, as closely as one sandal resembles another, if they had among them meaning among the People of the Book, there was a person who openly had intercourse with his mother, among my people, there will be one who does that stuff it Allah. So

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

Allah subhanaw taala is warning us over here, do not be like those who became divided. And this is referring to who the people of the book was telephone, and they differed mimbar the majra homolka unit, as after clear proofs had come to them. Meaning they had the truth. They had the evidences they had the book of Allah, they had, you know its explanation the prophets

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

him to them. The prophets taught them one after the other. It wasn't that they were ignorant. It wasn't that they were not being reminded. The fact is that they were being stubborn. The fact is that they refuse to change themselves. So they continued in their sin. And with this stubbornness, they went so far away from the truth. So Allah subhanaw taala is warning us Do not be like them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that the bunny is slightly ill divided into 72 groups, and my people will be divided into 73, all of which, but one will go to hell staford Allah, any Psalm, the meaning when people stray from the truth, then, then they're not also often was talking,

00:15:46--> 00:16:36

they're no longer on the straight path. And when they stray from the truth, and they legalize sin and oppression and wrong on themselves, then what will happen? The truth will not change. What will it Allahumma either boon or lame? Those will have a great punishment. Yo matoba Lu Han, what does what do we do? On the day, some faces will turn white, and some faces will turn black, meaning this is a day, the day of judgment, when they will have a severe punishment, when people's spiritual condition will become manifest. So, so what will happen, some faces will be a blue and other faces will become the sweat do now what does it mean by this, that some faces will turn white and other

00:16:36--> 00:17:29

faces will turn black? Remember, that in the Arabic language, it is said is what the word Who? Literally it means yes, his face became black. But what is meant is that his space became expressive of grief, or sorrow, or displeasure, or it was overcome by fear, by reason of shame, or because he was disgraced. He was afraid, or he was humiliated. So remember that here? You know, on the day of judgment, what's going to happen is that some faces will be covered in gloom. Any darkness is not necessarily in color, a person can have the darkest skin tone, but there's no on their face, their face can still be bright, and a person could be of the widest skin, but they can still have darkness

00:17:29--> 00:18:23

on their face. So yoma Toby of Lu Han with us, what do we do? This is referring to how people's spiritual condition will become manifest on their bodies, it will become their physical condition on the Day of Judgment for a man levinas what that would do home at a fountain bar, the EMA and econ. As for those whose faces turn black, to them, it will be said, Did you disbelieve after your belief, meeting people whose faces will be covered in in fear in grief, at that regret and shame will be so visible on their face? So they will be asked that did you disbelieve after your faith? This is not a question out of, you know, wanting to know this is a question for the purpose of reprimand for the

00:18:23--> 00:19:08

purpose of causing further disgrace and further embarrassment that did you really disbelieve? After having faith has an imbecile he said these are the hypocrites, these are the hypocrites. And we see that in the previous verses what has been mentioned command what is right forbid what is wrong. And if that is not done, then what will happen people will think wrong is right and right is wrong. Any there will be no difference. So then, people will be committing coffer after a man for do cooler either Bobby Marco quantum tuck for rune then taste the punishment for what you use to reject what Amala Vina bl birth would you home, fulfill Raj Mattila houfy her Holly Dune, but as for those whose

00:19:08--> 00:19:53

faces will turn white, they will be within the mercy of Allah, they will abide there in eternally. Now, it be a low wedge who is when someone's Facebook becomes white. This doesn't mean that the color of their skin changes. Rather What this means is that that joy and cheerfulness and happiness is visible on their face. In another place in the Quran, we learn how some faces on the day of judgment will be such that they will be frowning, contorted, twisted completely, why because of anger because of rage. So, a person's outcome on the day of judgment will be so clear, it will be so visible. And that is the day when either people will be happy about what they have done, or they

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

will be in eternal regret and rage with themselves. So those people who

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

will be happy, who will be joyful, their faces will be radiant, they will be in the mercy of Allah and they will abide there in meaning in paradise in Allah subhanaw taala has mercy forever. The question is that what is it that will cause people's faces to be brightened on that day? What is it that will bring joy to a person on the day of judgment? And what is it that will literally enlighten the face of a person on the day of judgment? First of all, we learn in Hades, that the effect of will do that when a person makes will do they wash themselves up in order to pray, then this will be a source of light for them on the day of judgment when a person makes a lot of soju. When a person

00:20:44--> 00:21:27

makes frequent prostrations, then this will also be a source of you know, brightness of their face on the Day of Judgment. In a head these witches in Muslim, Ahmed we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I will recognize the people of my oma on the Day of Judgment. So the companions asked that O Messenger of Allah in such a, you know, huge crowd, he all all mankind will be there all human beings will be there. How will you be able to recognize the people of your oma? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, tell me that when you enter a stable and you see, you know, horses that are all the same, but then there is one horse that has a white mark

00:21:27--> 00:22:10

on on its forehead. Are you able to recognize it? Are you able to tell it apart from the rest? And they said yes, so the Prophet sallallahu Urdu seldom said that my own mother people of my oma on the day of judgment will have similar you know, white foreheads, why? because of a subdued because of their prostrations and because of their will do. So this is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will recognize the people of his oma. Thirdly, we learned that when a person conveys the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This will also be a source of note for them on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Madara he said, may Allah cause his face to

00:22:10--> 00:22:55

shine, may Allah brighten the face of the person, which person, the person who hears a hadith from us and conveys it, for perhaps the one to whom it is conveyed, may remember it better than the one who first hears it, meaning he will value it much more. So be of those who conveyed the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the number for loving one another for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala this will also be a source of note for a person on the Day of Judgment, a source of brightness of the face on the on the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala says Deepika Ayatollah Hina through her alayka will help. These are the verses of Allah, we recite them to you in truth,

00:22:55--> 00:23:43

meaning these verses contain only the truth. And these verses are truly from Allah. And these verses elaborate the truth, the reality of this world and the reality of the hereafter. One Mullah who UT the Luma Leela alameen. And Allah wants no injustice to the world's meaning Allah subhanaw taala never treats people unfairly. Why? Because he doesn't need to be unfair. Why would he be unfair when he has knowledge of everything and when he is a no need of people. So when Mullah Will you need to learn Melilla alameen if people suffer, this is our own. This is a result of our own wrongdoing, meaning on the Day of Judgment, whatever a person receives, then he can you know a person cannot

00:23:43--> 00:24:32

blame Allah, a person cannot say that I have been treated unfairly. No, Allah does no lol Allah does not intend any wrongdoing towards the world's Allah subhanaw taala is fair, Allah subhanaw taala is just and it is part of His justice, that he has informed us of these truths. So clearly, when Allah Hema for some are were pure, we're moving on and to Allah belongs, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, meaning all people, whatever is in the in the earth, whatever is in the sky, everything belongs to Allah subhanaw taala everyone is Allah subhanaw taala has property and all of us are slaves to him. What either Allah hatori General award and to Allah will all matters be

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

returned. Come to them higher on button, then it is said quantum Hira Martin. You are the best nation meaning before Allah subhanaw taala You are the best oma, you are the best community who is you? You Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you complete 70 nations meaning there were 69 nations before you You are the 17th

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

Of which you are the best and dearest to Allah unto high ruha What a karamo her Allah, Allah, just think about this, how many different nations have come into this world, they have come and gone, and out of all the different communities out of all the different people in the world, you are the best of them, and the most dearest of them to Allah subhanaw taala the most honorable of them to Allah subhanaw taala but what is it that makes you the best nation? Or collegiately NASA, you are the best nation, or reject leanness that have been produced for mankind. This is what makes you best. This is the first thing. Secondly, that Motorola Bill maroof you command what is right, what then? honer?

00:25:48--> 00:26:37

Anil? munkar? number three? you forbid What is wrong? And number four? What took me No, no Billa you believe in Allah? What's the first quality of this best nation? The first is that you have been produced for people meaning for their guidance for their benefit. So out of all the nations that have ever existed, you are you have been and you will be the best for the rest of mankind. We see the generally, what is it that nations have done, people of the past? What is it that they what legacy have they left behind? Any we see so much oppression, so much injustice, and and you know, different nations exploiting other nations attacking other nations causing destruction and ruin, and

00:26:37--> 00:27:24

literally, you know, causing so much damage that has persisted over generations, or there have been nations who have been extremely selfish, you know, only concerned about themselves by building their own empires, or, you know, people who have only been concerned about themselves. So for example, Bernie is so ill, they were not, you know, obligated to, you know, convey to the rest of the people, they were supposed to follow the law that was revealed to them. So, already, Jacqueline, as the Muslim oma exists not just for itself, it exists for the benefit for the guidance of the rest of mankind. And this is why out of all the nations that have ever existed, you are supposed to be the

00:27:24--> 00:28:13

best for all people, when you are supposed to be the most righteous and the most beneficial nation for mankind. Secondly, you command what is right. Thirdly, you forbid what is wrong. And fourthly, you believe in Allah. So these are the conditions for the other side that remodel Dylan Warren, who he recited this idea, during a hedge that he performed. And when he saw that the people, you know, were rushing, so he recited this idea, and he said, Whoever likes to be among this oma, then let him fulfill the condition that Allah has set in this idea. Meaning, if you really want to be considered, you know of those who are best, meaning who are higher on Metin, then you should fulfill these

00:28:13--> 00:29:01

conditions. And check yourself that how much of your life is dedicated to just you know, pleasing yourself and just living for yourself pursuing your own personal goals? And how much are you concerned about? People, human beings in general, you know, what happens with us is that the maximum we think of is, you know, our local community, or, you know, the Muslims, we need to think about all people, how is it that we can benefit them? How is it that we can uplift them? How is it that we can, you know, bring goodness to them? So, hopefully, Jacqueline, nurse, and then talk more honorable maruf check yourself that how much how much of maruf do I know? And then accordingly, do I

00:29:01--> 00:29:47

advise people to do what is right and begin you know, with your own family? For example, when when it is time to pray Salah, then do I remind my family to pray my own children? Do I remind them to pray? Have I taught them how to pray? Have I taught them the importance of Salah taught morona Bill Maher roof, then how Naranjo Mancha? you forbid What is wrong? Again, check yourself, you know, within your own family, even if something wrong is being done, for example, children are fighting they're using bad language. Do you just laugh? Or do you stop them from from saying What is wrong? What took me No, no Billa you should believe in Allah. How strong is that faith. So the people of

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

this oma who do not fulfill these conditions, then they're like the People of the Book whom Allah subhanaw taala has criticized, can all lay yet and are hohner among caring for our loo that

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

They use that they did not use to forbid one another from the wrong which they did themselves, meaning they did wrong themselves. And they also did not stop one another. And then here again, we see the importance of commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong. Remember that this is a pillar of Islam. This is a major, you know, this is something that has immense importance in our religion. A Muslim is not selfish. A Muslim is not you know, someone who's just concerned about himself. Yes, you're supposed to be concerned about yourself first. But that doesn't mean that you are aloof to, you know, your surroundings are the people who are around you, and you don't care

00:30:39--> 00:31:23

about them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Islam has eight shares, meaning there's different ways to excel in Islam. First is Islam itself meaning surrendering to Allah subhanaw taala then Salah, there are some people who are very good at you know Salah in the sense that they will pray their father, they will you know, also be consistent with their you know, their their voluntary prayer, and then the cat is also a portion fasting is also a portion Hajj is a portion of marble maroof command commanding what is right is a portion nahan and Monica for bidding what is wrong is a portion Jihad striving in the way of Allah, that is also a portion and the

00:31:23--> 00:32:05

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the one who has no share, no portion of Islam is truly ruined, truly ruined. So we need to think about ourselves, the quality of a believer is that will move me no no will move me now, Barack Obama earlier Obama yet morona Bill Maher Ruth way and hohner an element called the believing men and the believing women are allies of one another, they come in what is right, they forbid what is wrong, meaning they remind each other and when a person, you know commands, if what is right forbids what is wrong, they're spreading awareness, they're helping one you know they're helping others on the straight path, then this is something that is greatly

00:32:05--> 00:32:51

rewardable and had these we learn that if anyone invites others to follow the right guidance, then his reward will be equal to those of the people who follow him without their rewards being diminished in any respect on that account. Meaning when you call someone to do something good, then every single person who you know who does good because you invited them, every time that they do good, you will also have a you you will also get that reward. So imagine one is that you do good yourself, then your reward is limited. But when you share that goodness with others, then what happens your reward is also multiplied, it is increased, so be eager for that reward. Then it is

00:32:51--> 00:33:35

said Well, hello kitabi Locanda hire Allah home, if only the People of the Scripture had believed it would have been better for them. men whom will be known will act federal hormone Fassett Cohn, among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient. Here. The state of the People of the Book is mentioned because they did not believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So if they had believed it would have been better for them, how would it have been better for them, they would have accumulated so much reward, but I lost pounds. Allah says some of them believe, but most of them are actually defiantly disobedient. Some of them did believe, but majority of them did not. The

00:33:35--> 00:34:17

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the example of the Muslims, Jews and Christians is like the example of a man who employed laborers to work for him from morning until night for specific wages. So what happened these people, they worked until midday. And then they said, We don't need your money, meaning we don't want to be paid. And we don't care about what we've done, we're not going to finish the job. So the man says to them, don't quit the work, just complete the rest of it and take your full wages. But they refused and they went away. So the man hires another batch of people after them. And he says to them, complete the rest of the day. And yours will be the

00:34:17--> 00:34:57

wages I had fixed for the first batch. Meaning even though you didn't start in the morning, you're starting at midday. If you complete this work, until the end of the day, you will have the full pay. So they worked until the time of hustle. And then they said lead what we have done be an adult and you keep the wages you have promised us for yourself, meaning we're not we're no longer interested. We don't want to be paid. Forget about this. So the man says to them complete the rest of the work is just a little bit that is left, but they refused. So what what happens he then employs another batch of people to work for the rest of the day. And what happens when they work until sunset, they

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

receive the wages of the two former batches as well.

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

Meaning they work actually for very little time, just at the end of the day, but they get full wages. So, this is the example of the Muslims, first it was the the Jews, then it was the Christians and then it is the Muslims. So, if they had believed if they had carried on, if they had accepted willingly, this would have been good for them, but they didn't. So, they only caused loss to themselves layer the ruku Illa other, they will not harm you except for some annoyance, meaning all Muslims, what will happen is that now, they will try to harm you, but this harm will only be a little bit of annoyance, what he will call t lucam, you will locomole at about and if they do fight

00:35:46--> 00:36:32

you, they will show you their backs. So mulayam soon and then they will not be aided, meaning you do not need to be afraid of them. Because they cannot cause you severe damage, they can only cause you minor harm and add other is, you know a very slight harm. So basically, you'll survive, so there's no need to be afraid of them. And in particular other has been interpreted as their verbal assaults, meaning the kind of things they say that you know, that cause a lot of hurt and pain. So, you do not need to fear them. And if they do fight you, they will never win against you. They will not be aided against you. And this is something that happened in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:36:32--> 00:37:15

sallam Budi birth or lay him with Villa to ainoa. So people in LA be heavily mean Allah will heavily mean a nurse, they have been put under humiliation By Allah, wherever they are overtaken, except for a covenant from Allah, and a rope from the Muslims from the people, meaning there's only two ways of survival for them now, either they hold on to the rope of Allah. And one interpretation of this is that they accept Islam, then they will survive, then they will live with dignity in the world. Or secondly, they hold on to the rope of people, meaning they depend on people for their safety. And this refers to you know, the pledges of protection and safety that are offered to them. And yes,

00:37:15--> 00:38:07

this idea is about the people of the book. But and this is a lesson, a huge lesson for us. That with denial with disobedience. Any a person cannot live with dignity in this world, there will be consequences. And if not in this life, there will definitely be consequences in the hereafter. dignity is in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala success and salvation is in his in submitting to Allah subhanaw taala Weber will be held up in Manila and they have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah wa booty Beth la humulus kana and they have been put under destitution neediness of people, why the valley can be unknown. Can we look for on a bi Atilla? That is because they disbelieved in

00:38:07--> 00:38:51

the verses of Allah, they openly rejected them. And this is something that we need to think about. So often it is heard by people who claim to be Muslim, that they're saying things that are in clear contradiction to the verses of Allah, they will openly deny the verses of Allah, they will try to give them a new meaning that suits their desires. What way up to Luna ambia A be lady Hulk, and killed the prophets without any right Valley kabhi Ma. So where can we artha Dune? How did they have the audacity to do that? That is because the disobeyed and habitually transgressed when a person habitually transgresses one limit after another after another. And a person goes on committing sin

00:38:51--> 00:39:36

after sin after sin, then, you know, a point comes where a person doesn't even feel bad, a person doesn't even feel anything. And so, a person goes further into sin and goes on committing greater and greater crimes. So it is important that we stop ourselves. And when we see someone doing something wrong, we stopped them as well. We don't let them persist. You will see this in children. It begins with one bad word, one dirty joke. And then what happens that one bad word becomes a habit. And then they get too bored of it. And then another bad word is introduced into their vocabulary. And then they don't realize, you know, how, how bad of an expression how terrible of a

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

word it is, but they go on using it. And then that sense of higher, you know, that sense of shame, it goes away. So, here we see that he could be Morrow so where can we Arthur Dune? That is because they disobeyed and habitually transgressed. And this led them to denying the verses of Allah openly and trying to kill the prophets of Allah.

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

So, we see here, that

00:40:03--> 00:40:56

as a result of these crimes, what happened? They have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah. And when is it that a person ends up with the anger of Allah subhanaw taala This is when a person knows yet he acts contrary to his knowledge and what that will be rather be mean Allah will do it better Allah human mackanin and and this is when a person is put under destitution, constant neediness, you know, constant dissatisfaction. So, be very careful. Be very careful about the matter of your heart. Then it is said les Sue, so, they're not all the same. This is such a fair statement. All of the People of the Book are not the same. Because men Ll kitabi on matondkar Emerton, yet Luna iottie,

00:40:56--> 00:41:45

Lehi and a layli were homeless judoon. among the People of the Scripture is a community standing in obedience, reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night, and prostrating making such meaning there are among the People of the Book, those who believed and we see, for example, our beloved Salaam rhodiola Horan, who he he believed he was a movement. And then we see also among the Christians, so mattifier Cyril de la Mora, who he believed so lace who saw they're not all the same, and those who believe among them. among the People of the Book are those who are oma Tompa. Emerton, first of all omoton otamatone. A community that is standing standing how standing in obedience to

00:41:45--> 00:42:31

Allah, meaning they are obedient slaves to Allah. They're not rebellious. They're not disobedient, like the rest of them. Secondly, yet Luna I Atilla they recite the verses of Allah, they recite Quran, but when is it that they recite the Quran? And lay in the hours of the night? Why would a person recite the Quran in the night? Why? Because they're reciting it for themselves as a bother in order to worship Allah subhanaw taala. So this is referring to that the 100 Salah right? That they're praying the night reciting the Quran, well whom he has to do, and this is clarified further, by the fact that they make such that such days done when in Salah. So they're not just reciting the

00:42:31--> 00:43:21

Quran before people to impress them. No, they are truly devout servants of Allah, worshipers of Allah who who spend their nights awake, you know, reciting the Quran drawing close to Allah soprano, tada yet Luna ayatullah Anna alele, we're homeless do the moon. And then this is also understood as you know, a person would recite the verses of a lion the night when they're trying to learn them when they're trying to study them. So because during the daytime, what happens is that, you know, there's so much distraction, or there's so much work that you don't get time to, you know, study in, you know, with focus. So yet Luna I Atilla Anna alele, we're Haumea student, they increase their

00:43:21--> 00:44:04

knowledge and also in Nevada, how, by spending time with the Quran in the hours of the night. And when you do this in the night, there is of course, that benefit of, you know, being able to focus because there isn't any disturbance. But then this is also more sincere. We learn that this that this is actually worth envy because a person ends up accumulating so much reward. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no envy except in two cases. First, a man whom Allah subhanaw taala has taught the Quran and he recites it during the hours of the night, and during the hours of the day, and his neighbor listens to him, because he's reciting the Quran at home. In the

00:44:04--> 00:44:51

night, his neighbor listens to him, and says, I wish I had been given what has been given to so and so, so that I might do what he does. I wish I also knew the Quran, so that I could also recite it in salah and secondly, a man whom Allah has given wealth to and he spends it on what is just in right. And so, a person sees him and says, I wish I had been given what so and so has been given, so that I could also do what he is doing. So this is truly worth envy and reciting the Quran at night. Any This is something that we should all aspire to do, we should all try to do as much as possible, even if it's just a little bit. We learned in the Hadees that whoever stands in worship at night reciting

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

10 verses he will not be recorded among the negligent in if you managed to recite just 10 verses even 10 verses.

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

For example, the first 10 verses of pseudocode can have the last 10 verses of sort of earlier man or sutras which are around 10 verses. So reciting that much Quran in the night, that a person will not be recorded among the negligent and whoever stands in worship at night reciting 100 verses, he will be recorded among those who are obedient to Allah and whoever stands in worship at night reciting 1000 verses, he will be recorded among those who receive huge rewards. We also learned in a hadith that whoever recites 10 verses in the night that have been thought, a huge reward is written for him, and Arkansas is better than the world and whatever that it contains. So be eager to, to to

00:45:44--> 00:46:25

acquire this impart such people Allah subhanaw taala further praises them that you may not have been law he will yo will. They believe in Allah and the Last Day, way up Madonna Bill Maher, roofie way and hohner Anil Mancha and they enjoy what is right and forbid what is wrong. Notice how this is being mentioned over and over again. When you cite your own FL hierarchy and the hastened to good deeds, what will come in a slightly hain and those are among the righteous. So it is the quality of the righteous, that they are not just busy doing good themselves, but they also command what is right. And they forbid what is wrong. They care about others. They're concerned for others. And you

00:46:25--> 00:47:07

see this use it or owner feel hierarchy, they hasten to good deeds. Why would a person hasten to good deeds rush in doing good deeds, rushing doesn't mean doing it quickly. Rushing here means rushing to words good deeds, meaning not delaying them. Because when you like something, when you enjoy doing something, then you rush towards it. You want to do it first. And when you are really passionate about something, then you don't you know, delay, you don't procrastinate. You set your own fill hierarchy. They they find joy in doing good May Allah subhanaw taala make us among such Sally hain. We may have our lumen hyden, filling your funnel and whatever good they do, never will

00:47:07--> 00:47:52

it be removed from them, meaning it will never be rejected. They will be rewarded for it because Allah subhanaw taala has a show called The one who is appreciative Willa, who are the mumble Mota clean and Allah is Knowing of the righteous. So we see here that when a person is with the pee, when a person fears a lot, then what happens Allah subhanaw taala will not waste their good deeds, Allah subhanaw taala will reward him generously. So we should be concerned about having taqwa in alladhina cafaro learn toniann home and while you home, while Allah domina Allah He Shea, Indeed, those who disbelieve never will their wealth or their children, avail them against Allah at all, what Allah

00:47:52--> 00:47:59

equals horrible now, and those are the companions of the Fire, whom fee her Holly dawn, they will abide there in eternally.

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

So all of their wealth and their children that they have, this is not going to save them from the punishment of Allah. You see, in this life, what happens is that when a person is in some kind of difficulty, they use their wealth, right to save themselves, or if their children are able, their children are qualified, or their children, you know, have a certain, you know, love and concern for their parents, their children will advocate for them. When we see some how to line some places in the world. When people are in, you know, in a difficult position, they'll be willing to even sell their own children. Why so that they can have money in order to bring themselves out of difficulty

00:48:41--> 00:49:31

on the Day of Judgment, no matter how much wealth a person has, and no matter how righteous a person's children may be a person's wealth and their children are not going to save them from the punishment of Allah, if any, if if that is what a loss parameter has decided for them. And you see what is mentioned here in the levina. Careful those who deny their wealth their children will not help them at all. What will I cause How about now? Then mathema Yun Vokoun if he had he'll hire the dunya cometh led the example of what they spend in this worldly life is like that of a wind. What kind of a wind fee has slid rune which contains sled, now sail has been understood as frost or cold

00:49:31--> 00:50:00

and snow and it helps and it has also been interpreted as fire and if you think about it, extreme cold weather or you know fire, they have the same effect on plants. So it is said here that a wind containing frost what happens to it a saw but how to sell Coleman vellamo and fusa home, which strikes the harvest of a people who have wronged themselves for legato and destroyed

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

Meaning if there is a fire or there is frost, cold and snow that hits a, you know, a field, a crop, what's going to happen to that crop? What's going to happen to all of those plants, they're going to be destroyed? Well, maulana Muhammad Allah, Allah did not wrong them what I can enforce omya with the moon, but they're wrong themselves. What is happening over here. This is the example of the deeds of the people who disbelieve in Allah, that just like a harvest is destroy heart, you know, a crop that is ready for harvest, any it just needs to be picked. It is destroyed by you know such weather, just like that the deeds of the people who disbelieve will be turned into ashes on the Day

00:50:51--> 00:51:24

of Judgment, meaning they will be worthless. Why? Because they don't fulfill the condition. What is the condition for deeds to have weight on the Day of Judgment for deeds to have worth for deeds to bring reward on the day of judgment? The condition is that it'd be done with a man, it'd be done with belief in Allah, it should be done in the right way. And if a person does not even believe in Allah, they're not even expecting any reward from Allah than Why should their deeds bring them any benefit on the day of judgment? We learn over here we learn

00:51:25--> 00:52:05

we also learn the Quran that in alladhina cafaro you will feel corner and welcome Leah Sudan Sybil Allah Illa that indeed those who does believe they spend their wealth in order to hinder people from the way of Allah fossa unifi kunaal. So they will spend it meaning they will spend a great deal but then so mutter Kumar lay him has written, then it will be a source of regret for them, meaning on the Day of Judgment, this will be a source of great regret for them. So metha Luma Yun, Phil cone, whatever it is that they have spent in this world, it will be a source of regret for them on the Day of Judgment, when they will see all of it turn into ashes. We learn about this man who, you know,

00:52:05--> 00:52:49

from the time of Jerry Hillier, who was a very generous man, you know, someone who, whose stories of generosity were known, even to God, and I shall deal on Warren had asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that will he you know, will his good deeds benefit him? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said No, why? Because that man never said or bill fiddly that Oh my Lord forgive me meaning that that man never believed in Allah. So why would his deeds be a source of reward for him when he did not even believe? Yeah, you have Medina amanu, laka, taheebo, butanna, tambien dunican all you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves. Now, here the

00:52:49--> 00:53:41

believers are being advised a very important instruction is being given. And what is that, that you should not take as butanna those who are other than you, what is a built on a baton basically is the lining or the inner covering of a garment. So think about, you know, the inner lining of clothes, this is butanna. And from this The word butanna is used for a special, intimate friend, a confidant, meanings someone with whom you speak with unreservedly. So you share any matter with them, any secret with them, and they know about your personal affairs, they know about your, you know, personal matters. So, all believers do not take as butanna those who are other than yourselves, what

00:53:41--> 00:54:36

does this mean? Think about it in your worldly matters? Also, do you take for example, your business competitor? As you're confident? No, you don't. In fact, you try so hard to keep your you know, secret, your your information, private. Why? Because you know that if they find out about for example, your you know, secret recipe, right? or, or, you know, the kind of things that you use that make your business, you know, successful, then you know that you're going to lose out, right? So don't be naive over here. Don't be naive or believers, those who are not loyal to you, those who have openly shown enmity towards you. Don't trust them. Don't be deceived by them. Why? Because lie

00:54:36--> 00:55:00

Luna comm Kabbalah they will not spare you any ruin. The fact is that you are not safe around them, you are not safe with them. If you trust them, you will suffer because they will exert every effort to cause you ruin to cause your distress to cause you, you know, embarrassment and difficulty. What do I need them and secondly, they wish you

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

would have hardship meaning they love to see you suffering. Is this a friend? No, this is this is a clear enemy, someone who likes to see you suffer, honey, this is not a friend. So don't trust such such people. And don't go on sharing your your private matters with them. Because what do I need? Don't bother tillbaka omen of why he him? How do you recognize an enemy hatred has already appeared from their mouths? Because you see, when a person has hatred in their heart, then sooner or later they blurt out things you know which reflect that hatred so but better tillbaka omen of where he him warmer tofu, so do room, a kebab, and what they're just conceal is greater, or the bay Yana la como

00:55:48--> 00:56:33

Ayad in quantum dark loon, we have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason. So what is it that we learned from this, see the difference between friend and foe? Every single person is not worthy of being butanna. And every single person is not someone that you should be trusting. And every news about you is not for public consumption is not to be shared with everybody because you don't know who is your enemy, and who is not. And especially if someone has verbally attacked you. They have said things which have been very hurtful can be very, you know, don't be naive over there. How unto Allah Ito, a buena home, here you are loving them. Allah subhanaw taala is

00:56:33--> 00:57:14

describing the believers over here you see a believer because of his clean heart, he is such that he has love and concern for everyone. So her unto Allah to her buena home, here you are loving them. Well, are you a bona calm? But they don't love you? Not everyone loves you? What? To me? No, no Bill kitabi Callie. And specifically, when it comes to the people of the book, there is a huge difference. You believe in the Scripture, all of it. And they don't what either Lacan call you, and look at how to face they are with you. And when they meet you, they say we believe what either Hello, or I'll do our Lake Como an MLM in Ohio. But when they are alone, they bite their fingertips

00:57:14--> 00:57:59

at you in rage. And these are the hypocrites who when they come before you, they do sweet talk. But then as soon as you leave or as they leave you, they can get so angry and upset over you. Why? Because when they see certain blessings of Allah with you, they're extremely jealous, they're extremely angry, and out of that anger, they go on biting their fingertips. Now, this is a sign of a hypocrite right a person who is two faced and some people are like that, that on your face, they will be very pleasant. They will say yes, yes, we are with you. Yes, yes, you know, I love you, I support you, etc. But then behind you, they attack you behind you. They are extremely you know, they

00:57:59--> 00:58:44

show that jealousy they there are out of control in their rage against you. So don't be naive. calmo to be lazy, come say die in your rage in the Lucha or lemo be that your sudo Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the chests. Now, this is something that you also make us reflect on ourselves. Do we ever display such hypocrisy, that in front of people, we are very nice. But then as soon as it turned around, we go on pulling our hair and biting our fingertips, you know, in anger, because we're so annoyed with them. We're so irritated by them. Or because we hate them so much. We dislike them so much. We're so jealous of them. This is not the way of the believer and cool mood to

00:58:44--> 00:59:33

be lelee come say die in your rage. What does this mean? This means that no matter how much you know you envy someone, you are angry towards them, you you don't have any control over the blessings they received from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you can be so angry that your anger can kill you. But it's not going to make a difference to the decree of Allah to the favors that he wants to grant people. So there is no point in being angry with the decree of Allah. This is why a person who is jealous only harms himself, not others. Why? Because his jealousy is like what it's like a burning coal that he's holding on to who is it going to burn who isn't going to harm? It's going to harm the person

00:59:33--> 00:59:59

who is holding it. So this is the example of a jealous person called me to be really calm, your anger, your rage is not going to change anything. It's only going to harm you. It could kill you in the Lucha lamb that is sudo Indeed Allah is Knowing of that which occupies the chests, meaning Allah knows what is in your heart. So this is something that should, you know, frighten us that that should make us reflect over the state of our heart in them. sesco has an

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

Don't assume if good touches you, it distresses them. This is the definition of an enemy, that if you receive something good, if you are ever victorious, if you receive a blessing from Allah, they're unhappy. Why? Because they're jealous. We're into cybercom say he atone year for her, be her. But if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. If you suffer, then they're very happy about it. And then it is said that what in the spirou what a taco and if you are patient and you fear Allah than lay your good rukon cadeaux him shake, their plot will not harm you at all in Allah be my armor, Luna Mohave Indeed Allah is encompassing of what they do. Now, this verse emphasizes the

01:00:46--> 01:01:35

severity of the enemy, that the hypocrites feel against the believers, and also the severity of the enemy that the people of the book had for the Muslims. And this was especially evident at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that every time the Muslims were successful, these people were unhappy. And every time the Muslim suffered, you know, some kind of difficulty, they were extremely happy. This is a this is the sign of an enemy. This is the description of an enemy and we should seek refuge with Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from such fake people from such evil people who rejoice at our loss and who are upset at our winds. There is a draw, in which we say

01:01:35--> 01:02:24

Allahumma in the road to becoming Jerry Sue, that Oh Allah, I seek your refuge I seek refuge in You from a neighbor that is evil woman zodion too shy even your covenant machine and from a spouse that will make me old before old age women whether they're your coonawarra layyah Robin, and I seek your protection from a child who becomes a master to me. When a man in your corner Allah Yara Durban I seek your protection from wealth that becomes a source of torture for me, woman Holly maketing and from a friend that is maket who is makkad meaning someone who is plotting constantly to harm you how that are in a hotel Ronnie, his eyes are always watching me what call woohoo your Ernie and his

01:02:24--> 01:03:10

heart is also keeping an eye on me how that interval has certain definite hurt if he sees anything good in me, he buries it what he will say he attend other and if you see something bad in me, he spreads it, he spreads it meaning this is not someone who is sincere. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from such insincere people from such hidden enemies. But then, when the enmity of such people is is revealed, then what should we do in response in the spirou with a taco if you are patient, and you fear Allah, there Cade there plot will not harm you, because this is what we fear right? That such people will harm us. So how is it that you protect yourself from their

01:03:10--> 01:04:00

harm, that you observe patients in response to their, you know, behavior, and patients in response to the decree of Allah, because remember, Nothing happens without, without the will of Allah. And then Taku you fear Allah, you fear Allah in regards to your behavior, your actions. So on the one hand is patience, patience with the decree of Allah, accept this reality, that everyone is not a friend to you, everyone is not sincere to you accepted, this is sublime, and then bear the, you know that the annoyances you know, somebody is also that you control yourself that don't get so agitated over every little thing. You know, be calm, move your attention and focus to what is more important.

So if you do suffer, you have Taqwa, Allah subhanaw taala is a help will be with you is it not that when when elbow cuddle doula who are on who was patient in response to the person who was you know, hurling verbal abuse is the Prophet sallallahu earlier Sunnah was there? But then when I buckled I'll do love more and more responded he showed anger the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent him left. Why? Because when there is anger, then then who comes in shaitan comes in and when when there is a plan, then what's going to happen then the matter is going to be spoiled. So when you're a

01:04:41--> 01:04:59

patient had the help of Allah subhanaw taala is with you. In the Lucha Bhima Yama Luna Mohave remind yourself Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do whatever they are doing, in secret, right, and also openly the lies that they're spreading and also

01:05:00--> 01:05:42

So, you know all of the steps that they're taking to harm you. Remember Allah subhanaw taala has, you know he he has encompassed them all meaning he knows everything that they're doing and everything is in his control. So there will not be able to execute any plan of theirs without the permission of Allah subhanaw taala so why should you fear make sure that your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is correct, and leave the rest to Allah subhanaw taala he will take care of your affairs and he will protect you from your enemies. inshallah we will conclude over here for today subhanak Allahumma behenic a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta, stuffy Raka Tobu Lake wa salaam
