Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

are the wilhemina shavon rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah gil Karim rubbish. Rahi Saudi were Sidley MD. Wash Lula rock data melissani yokocho Kohli, along with my dear Colby was sadly Sani was roots of him at the Colby amin yoruban alameen.

00:01:22--> 00:01:29

inshallah, we will continue with our study of sort of earlier in one and today we will begin from verse number 121.

00:01:30--> 00:02:20

Remember that sort of earlier imraan is a Madani surah, which means that it was revealed after the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina, and parts of the surah were actually revealed regarding the Battle of boyhood, which was in the third year after Hitler. And the Battle of Ohio was actually very different. From the Battle of blood, we see that the Battle of button was sudden it was unexpected, the Muslims were unprepared. And they were also very few. The Battle of orange, on the other hand, was somewhat expected it was planned, the Muslims were, you know, more prepared, and they were also much more in terms of number yet, but that was a victory and or heard was a

00:02:20--> 00:03:19

victory that turned into a huge loss. So these verses, these verses over here, they show us how we must learn from our experiences, it is very important that we reflect on what went right, we reflect on what needs to be fixed. And we reflect on what the next steps should be. Because if we don't learn from our experiences, we insist on our old patterns, we will not be able to make any progress. If we want a different outcome, then we have to do what is different. We can just be sad and upset about the loss that we have experienced. That is understandable. It is very normal to feel upset, very normal to feel the pain and the hurt. But if we really want to make progress, we have to learn

00:03:19--> 00:04:11

from our experience. And that cannot happen if we don't reflect on what went right, what needs to be fixed and what the next steps should be. So these verses help us understand what lessons we can take from such experiences. So let's begin. Number 121. Allah subhanaw taala says what is the hurdle term in Africa? To burn we will move me Nina McCarty, Daniel Patel, well, Allahu semir on earline. And remember when you are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left your family to post the believers at their stations for the battle. And Allah is hearing and knowing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam played his part very well, when he received news of the people of Makkah, arriving to launch

00:04:11--> 00:04:57

and offensive against the Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam consulted the companions that What should we do? Should we stay in Medina and defend ourselves from within? Or should we go out in the open and fight them in an open plain meaning should we have a full on battle? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam personally wanted to defend the Muslims by staying in Medina and he said that I see myself in a protected fortress, because Medina is such that it has natural protections. So they could use those protections to their advantage. But the younger companions, especially those who had not participated in the Battle of brother strongly expressed their wish to go and fight the

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

enemy in the open. So the prophets of Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Who are you? selam accepted that because that is what the result of the discussion was. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a leader, what did he do? He discussed the matter with the people, the people give their input, a conclusion was made. And then that decision was carried out. We learned that some companions, they actually felt bad about, you know, the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wished for something else, but they insisted on something different. And that is what the prophet sallallahu Urdu sent them agree to do. So they actually went and apologized to him. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, it is not appropriate that once a prophet

00:05:39--> 00:06:24

has worn his armor, he takes it off without engaging in battle, meaning once we have made this decision, we are going to stick to it, we're not going to change it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been praised over here, what it learned over time in Africa, and when you left your family, meaning the decision to go out of Medina, in order to fight the enemy, because that decision was made with consultation, everyone agreed to it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being praised over here. And you see this decision was made unanimously. And then he he stuck with the plan to vote with me now. makari de Lille, Peter, he went to the planet or to the

00:06:24--> 00:07:07

earth, and then he was posting the believers at their stations for the battle. He did not say, Well, this was your idea. So now you figure it out yourselves? No, once the decision was made, this is what's going to happen. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led people in that. Now Ohio, remember is a mile long series of mountains. And it is in the north west of Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took the army to a spot by the foot of the mountain where three sides were protected by the mountain. And there was a small, you know, opening in the center, which the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm sealed off by appointing 50 archers over there. So really,

00:07:08--> 00:07:54

there was a very small area of about 300 meters, where the Muslims would have to fight the enemy. And the great numbers of the enemy would be irrelevant now, because there was such a small area in which they would have to squeeze through. So this was in a very good planning that you know, this was very good strategy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being praised over here to bone, we will move Mina mina makara de Lille kita. You went out and you were posting the believers at their stations for the battle. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave very clear instructions, especially to the 50 archers, that he had positioned in the opening, where there was a

00:07:54--> 00:08:40

chance that the enemy would come from there. The Prophet sallallahu earlier Sallam said to them, that stick to your places, and do not leave it. Even if you see birds, snatching us until I send for you. Meaning Do not leave your place until I tell you to. And if you see that we have defeated the enemy, and we have made them flee, even then you should not leave your place until I tell you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave people their positions, and he also gave them very clear instructions, will Allahu Samir on our leave, and Allah is hearing, knowing, meaning the instructions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave Allah subhanaw taala heard those, and

00:08:40--> 00:09:22

you can imagine, you know, a lot was being said at that time, because when there is a group of people working together, then you know instructions are being given. Some people are paying attention, others are not, you know, paying attention. Others misunderstand later they say, Oh, no one told us anything. Why? Because, you know, people interpret different things differently. Some people are more attentive, others are not. Willa who Samir on arleen. Allah subhanaw taala is ever hearing ever knowing he heard everything that was said, he knows how people were behaving, what people were doing. And you see when people are working together, different people are saying

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

different things. Now, sometimes we are talking to ourselves and other times, you know, we are talking to the people who are around us. It is very important that what we say is something positive. Because what we say is going to impact us and it's also going to impact other people. It is very normal that when you're working with people, you get frustrated, you get upset, you know you have anxiety, you sometimes get anger, you know, angry so it is important that we turn you know that frustration into dA

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

use that energy of anxiety into, you know, making liquid. Let those tears of anger and hurt and fear flow and turn them into drop. So well lo Samir and Arlene, Allah subhanaw taala hears Allah subhanaw taala knows, some people were talking in cooperation. And we also learned that others were bickering. For example, we learn that even before the Muslims reached or heard of the Libin obey, returned to Medina, he went back to Medina with 300 people, and our beloved nobody was a hypocrite, and this is when his hypocrisy was revealed. And what excuse did he give, he said that I never wanted to fight the enemy in the open. I wanted to remain in Medina and defend the city from within.

00:10:48--> 00:11:39

So I don't agree with your plan, and I will have no part in it. So he literally abandoned the Muslims abandon the rest of the people. And he went back to Medina, well, Allahu semir, on our leam then it is said in hamata, if a tiny men Come and touch shala will know who will you humor when two parties among you were about to lose courage, but Allah who was their ally, while Allah He fell, yet our Kelly mock me noon, and upon Allah, the believers should rely. You see, when the love and obey left, there were two groups of the unsolved the bunu haritha. And the bunu selama, who almost went along with Abdullah bin obey or soon after him. Why? Because they became afraid, they were also

00:11:39--> 00:12:29

almost influenced by our beloved obey. So it's very normal when you see people leaving, when you see people quitting, then has an effect on your morale also. So these two groups were about to return. They were about to go back to Medina. But it is said with Allah, Who will you humor, Allah who was their ally? So Allah subhanaw taala strengthened their hearts, Allah subhanaw taala gave them firmness, Allah subhanaw taala guided them, so they did not quit. You see, beginning something starting something good is easy. It is exciting. There's that adrenaline rush. But then as the excitement kind of, you know, goes down, and you begin to see the challenges, you actually have to

00:12:29--> 00:13:22

work. And you see, you know, people quitting, then fear and dread takes over you. And it's very easy to quit over there. Or at least a person begins to, you know, think about it that maybe I should stop. But if it's the right thing to do, then we must push through. Remember, it's where the burn is that success lies in. For example, if you want to exercise only until you're comfortable, meaning you don't want to feel any burn in your muscles, then you're never going to make any progress. When you're moving your body and your core begins to hurt, the muscles begin to burn, that is a sign that you're making progress. So remember that to make any progress, you you definitely have to experience

00:13:22--> 00:14:12

the difficulty, the pain, and is the karma remaining firm on good things is only possible by the tofik of Allah subhanaw taala when Allah subhanaw taala enables a person so Allah Who will you whom, Allah who was their ally, Allah who was their protector, Allah was their friend, in total bacara Ira 257 we learn Allah Who will you levina amanu you who read your hamanako automatic Illa know that Allah is the friend, the protector of those people who believe and you bring some out of darkness into light. He brings them out of their, you know, state of weakness, to strength, he brings them out of doubt, towards clarity. He brings them out of their state of double mindedness to certainty

00:14:12--> 00:14:59

from their in a weakness. They're there, you know, thinking about quitting to being firm. So when you're feeling you know, shaky, you're wondering, should I carry on or not? Ask Allah subhanaw taala for strength. ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm told earlier the Allahu anhu that you should say, Allah Houma, Dini was said digney that Allah guide me and Sydney make me adhere to the straight path. Meaning make me go on the straight path, not the wrong path. And then keep me keep me straight on the right path as well that I don't veer off. I don't go off the right path. Keep me firm on it alone.

00:15:00--> 00:15:51

madine was said digney and what is it that we need to do? We need to rely upon Allah subhanaw taala while Allah He finally at our Kelly me known, because it is, you know our fears that make us weak. So put your trust in Allah, not in your own strength, not in your, you know, friends and supporters and your family, not in the people who are working with you, not in, you know, on, on your success. No, put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala while Allah He finally at our Khalil mcmeen on this is what will bring you courage and hope and the strength to carry on jabil Do you love more and who said that this idea was actually revealed about us meaning the bundle selama and the bundle hadiza

00:15:51--> 00:16:38

and we do not wish that it had not been revealed. Because Allah subhanaw taala says will law Who will you whom you need this is an honor for us? that yes, we were about to lose courage, but will law Who will you whom Allah who was there Allah, Allah was our ally, and he gave us the strength. So remember, to make mistakes to feel weak? Yes, this is human, but with Allah subhanaw taala has protection and help a person can get back on the straight path. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala is everyone's protector. But Allah is the protecting friend of those who believe will law Who will you humor and the greater a person's faith is the greater a person's commitment is to Allah, the

00:16:38--> 00:16:44

greater protection and friendship they receive from Allah? Allahu Walia, Houma.

00:16:45--> 00:17:38

Wanaka na sobre como la who be bedded in what unto Avila? And already had Allah given you victory at the Battle of Bedell while you were few in number for topple La la la quinta skoon. Therefore fear Allah, perhaps you will be grateful. So the Muslims should rely on Allah, we should not lose courage when we face challenges, because Allah subhanaw taala helps his slaves. Look at how Allah subhanaw taala helped the Muslims and better when they were a villa, when they were very few. They were weak, there were only 300 compared to the enemy, who were 1000. But what happened? The Muslims were victorious. How were they victorious? Was it the fact that they were well prepared? Was it the fact

00:17:38--> 00:18:34

that they had, you know, great resources? Or was it just luck? No, they were victorious because of Allah subhanaw taala his help and his trophy? So let us learn this lesson. that success is by Allah's help, it is by his trophy, not because of what we have or don't have. So let us learn to rely on Allah subhanaw taala in all of our circumstances, and seek His help and focus on pleasing Him and look past your weaknesses and see the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala look past the challenges that are before you and see the help of Allah subhanaw taala and for Allah Allah Allah conditio Quran, Fear Allah, perhaps you will be grateful. You see, gratitude comes after toccoa when

00:18:34--> 00:19:23

we're feeling ungrateful, when we have, you know, many reasons to complain about our circumstances, when we're feeling you know, frustrated, then this is because of a lack of connection with Allah subhanaw taala negativity, you know, feeling very defeated, feeling very, you know, upset about you know your circumstances. This is because of a lack of connection with Allah subhana wa Tada. So it is important that when we're feeling like this, we reorient ourselves, we remind ourselves of Allah subhanaw taala, that Allah is listening, Allah is watching that Allah knows that Allah subhanaw taala has given me a lot that Allah subhanaw taala brings good out of every situation, that nothing

00:19:23--> 00:20:00

happens without the will of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala is wise. And when you will think like this, you will find reasons to be grateful. Your negativity will actually go away. It will turn into gratitude and gratitude will bring you positive energy, it will light passion within you so you will work happily and energetically towards your goal. So for Allah, Allah Allah quantas karoun the Muslims are reminded of brother is the colonial movement in remember when you set to the believers meeting when the Prophet sallallahu

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

Earlier sanlam was saying to the believers at the Battle of brother, that eleniak fear calm, is it not sufficient for you, and you made the camera bukom that your Lord should reinforce you be Salah 30 Allah feminine mela ekati Moon xylene with 3000 angels that are sent down. Isn't that enough for you? If Allah subhanaw taala sends down 3000 angels to assist you to fight alongside you, Bella? Yes, in Deus biru with a taco. If you remain patient and conscious of Allah, where to come in Foley him Heather, and the enemy come upon you attacking in rage. Young Did you come Rob bukom your Lord will reinforce you with how many bihon Sati Allah feminine Mullah ekati Musa we mean with 5000

00:20:53--> 00:21:28

angels having marks of distinction. And this happened at the Battle of Bethel 1000s of angels were sent to help the Muslims, and these angels were hidden helpers, there was, of course gibreel, the great angels, but besides these great angels, there were 1000s of angels to assist the Muslims, and the Muslims didn't see all of them. The Muslims did not see the angels. And yes, you know, we learn about certain reports where the companions mentioned having, you know, seen someone whom, or heard, you know,

00:21:29--> 00:22:22

one of the companions mentioned about how he heard the sound of someone saying, hey, zoom, and that was an angel. And this is the case that the some companions Yes, they heard they witnessed the angels but they didn't see all those 3000 5000 angels. So the fact is, that when you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala, when you do your best, when you stay firm in the cause of Allah, than the help of Allah, who will come from where you do not even expect, and such help will come, that you are not even aware of Allah subhanaw taala will help you in ways that you cannot even see. But this is conditional, how will that help come into spirou? What a taco, if you are patient, you have

00:22:22--> 00:23:08

Southern and you have the core, what is Southern, that you stay firm, that you bear the hardship that you do not become weak, you do not quit, you are resilient, you do your best and that you have the core meaning you think what is right, you say what is right, you do what is right. You don't disobey your Lord, in the spirou what a taco because you know, when things get difficult, that is where we, you know, start being easy on ourselves. And, you know, we start being so easy on ourselves that we make the unlawful lawful for ourselves. So in the spirit of what a taco or sometimes when things are difficult, we start saying things which are inappropriate, we start you

00:23:08--> 00:23:55

know, thinking things which are inappropriate. So in the spirit, what a taco, you stay firm, you are patient and you fear Allah, you fulfill your duty to Allah, then what's going to happen, you're going to receive the help of Allah through ways that are beyond you in unimaginable ways. Woman Jr, Allahu Allah who Illa Bushra Allah con and Allah made it not except as a sign of good tidings for you. This was good news for you, will he tell to my inner co lubicon B and to reassure your hearts thereby woman not through a laminar in the Lair Hill Azazel Hakeem and victory is not except from Allah, the Exalted in Might the wise. So you see when the Muslims were informed, the Prophet

00:23:55--> 00:24:39

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him about the 1000s of angels that were going to assist them in brother. This was good news. And through this good news, what happened? Their hearts were reassured previously, they were afraid they were wondering what's going to happen. And you can imagine that anxiety it overtakes you. So this good news was reassurance for them. It's you know, it brought contentment to their hearts, it brought ease to their hearts. So remember that any form of help that you receive any form of tangible help that you receive. Sometimes it is in the form of funding because that is what you are in need of, you know you need money, you need finances. Sometimes it is

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

in the form of you know, people's support, sometimes their vocal support, anything, any kind of help that you receive them. Remember that help is just bushwa it is just good news. It is just something that reassures your heart, but no matter what it is, remember it can

00:25:00--> 00:25:56

Never be the cause of your success, the cause of success that Nussle that success comes from who it is from Allah, woman nurse through a laminar in the law. And this Nussle the help that you have just received that has also come from Allah. So never be, you know, enamored by the numbers, you know, of the people that are supporting or, or the the figures, the money that you know, the funding that has come it cetera, et cetera, whatever it is, don't be enamored by the help that has come your way. Rather, celebrate the praises of your Lord, thank him and glorify Him. Because whatever help that has come your way, is just a suburb. All of that are just us Bab there are means and the one who

00:25:56--> 00:26:44

created those means the one who caused those means to be effective. In your case, that is who Allah subhanaw taala was sub bibble as verb, so remember him and thank him and realize that the help has come from Allah subhanaw taala Leah potara thora fermina levina cafaro that he might cut down a section of those who had disbelieved, oh, yuck. bita home or suppress them, fan kalibo ha a been so that they turn back disappointed. And this is what happened at bothered that a large number of the enemies 70 of them were killed. And this was a huge success for the Muslims because it was these people who had been opposing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Muslims for so long. It

00:26:44--> 00:27:30

was these people, for example, a Buddha who was killed at the Battle of butter, and Abuja had caused, you know, so much difficulty for Muslims. He had persecuted so many Muslims from the first day. So Leah Katara, author of Amina Lavina cafaro, a huge section of the enemy was cut off now. It was cut down now at the Battle of butter. Oh, yuck PETA home or suppress them. Their strength was broken. Because 70 were killed and 70 were taken as prisoners. And then those 70 prisoners, they had to ransom by paying huge sums of money. So really, their strength was broken. feyen Polly boo ha a been so that they turned back disappointed. You see high aim is a person who had great hopes. But

00:27:30--> 00:28:17

then he fails. So he had great expectations. But then he fails. So he is disappointed. Why because he has failed. So the people of mcca came to fight the Muslims that bothered with great hopes. There were so many in number. They were, you know, so confident that were so well prepared. And they had brought, you know, even a lot of entertainment with them. Why? Because they were so confident that they were going to win, but they terribly failed. So phi and kalibo have a been they turned back disappointed. Now this is what happened at bothered. But what happened at boyhood? We all know that the eventual outcome of or heard was that the Muslims were, yes, they were victorious at the

00:28:17--> 00:29:04

beginning. But when the archers left their posts, then what happened? The enemy returned, and they launched a surprise attack on the Muslims. Why? Because now the Muslims were unguarded. So the Muslims incurred huge losses. And one of those losses was that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. Even he was injured. He was injured he was wounded under sala de la hora. And he reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was wounded. His front teeth were damaged on the Battle of on the day of the Battle of or hurt. And he also got a wound on his head. And he was wiping the blood from his face. As he was injured, he was wounded, he was bleeding. He was wiping the blood off

00:29:04--> 00:29:19

of his face. And he was saying that how will these people attain salvation? When they have wounded their prophet? And they have broken his tooth? While he was only calling them towards Allah?

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

How will these people ever be successful? How will they ever be guided? How will they ever attain salvation when they have done this to their messenger? sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is what the prophet sallallaahu Ernie was send them set but Allah subhanaw taala revealed lace Allah camino Emery Shea on not for you is the decision at all You are not to decide anything over here. Oh he a toolbar lay him whether Allah subhanaw taala should cut them down or forgive them. Oh, you are Libra whom or punish them for inner home lolly moon For indeed they are wrongdoers. Yes.

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

The people who attack the Muslims over here who injured the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent them over here who fought against the believers. Yes, they are wrong, but judgment belongs to Allah. Allah is the one who decides whether these people should be punished or they should be forgiven. Allahu Akbar, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not allowed to judge people. And here we are. We have the audacity to pass our judgment on people. Right, left and center. We have the audacity to hand out, you know, to two people their fate, unsolicited. We think that we have the right to tell people you know, or pass judgment on people, this one's never going to become good.

00:30:47--> 00:31:34

This one is a complete, you know, failure. This one is never going to be guided. This one is never going to be fixed. This one is never going to pray. This one is never going to be forgiven. Any we have we have so much arrogance within ourselves that we think we can go on passing judgment on people. Yes, we have to do our part we have to call right right and wrong wrong. We don't change the truth. Yes, we have to advise people. Yes, we have to warn people, but we never have the right to judge people. Remember, there were many people on the side of the enemy on the day of the Battle of overheard, who were later guided to Islam. Think about it, Holly didn't believe is the one who

00:31:34--> 00:32:23

regrouped the enemy. And you know the enemy that was fleeing from the battlefield. He is the one who regrouped them. He is the one who brought them together. And he is the one who launched a surprise attack on the Muslims. It was because of him. It was because of his strategy against the Muslims that so many Muslims were killed that the Prophet sallallahu Urdu son was injured. But what happened within a few years, Khalid Ibn Walid accepted Islam, and he became Saifullah, the sword of Allah. The thing is that we, as human beings only see the present condition of people, the current condition of people, we only know some things about their past. And we only see some things about

00:32:23--> 00:33:05

their present. We don't know the reality of people, we don't know what is really in their hearts, what they truly desire, what their real struggles are, we don't know. Sometimes, you know, we see an image, you know, a photo, a picture or something on the internet. And based on that, we think that we know people completely and based on that we think that we can say whatever we want about them, we can pass judgment on them. We don't know the reality of a person. We don't know what's really going on in their life. We don't know what their you know, struggles are, we don't know the you know, the sincerity and the faith that is in their heart. We don't know. And we have no idea about what might

00:33:05--> 00:33:49

happen, what might change in the future. We don't know when and how Allah subhanaw taala will guide them. So we should hold off on our opinions, we should keep them to ourselves. In fact, we should get rid of them because it doesn't befit us at all. That we pass judgment on people. When we see someone doing something wrong. We should pray for their guidance. Yes, we have to do a marble maruf went ahead and one call, but remember, I'm up in my roof. As I mentioned earlier, it doesn't mean that we pass judgment on people that Oh, you are a cafe, or you are you know, miska you are misguiding people, you are lol mobile. We don't have the right to label people identify the mistake

00:33:49--> 00:34:34

and advise people on that identify the error and advise people on that don't cancel people altogether, and don't pass your verdict on them. Because this is the right of Allah subhanaw taala in a Hadees we learned the Prophet sallallahu earlier set him said that a man said by Allah, Allah will not forgive this person, any a person, a man said this about another, that By Allah, Allah will never forgive them. And Allah subhanaw taala said, Who is He who swore by me that I will not forgive someone, I have forgiven him and I have nullified your good deeds, a selfish Allah and he What if because of our judgment of other people, we are not forgiven and they are forgiven? What loss what a

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

huge loss. So lace Allah camino Omri Shea, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have the right to say this, that how would Allah guide people? How would Allah how could these people, you know ever attained salvation? If they have done such and such? Then how do we think that we have the right to say such things? We don't have the right will

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

Well ilahi math is somehow worth your while marfil on and to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, yellow field olema your shadow where you are available Manisha, we belong to Allah. And you know, everyone belongs to Allah and Allah forgives whom He wills and punish his home He wills. This is Allah subhanaw taala his decision will Allahu Allah fudo Rahim and a nice Forgiving and Merciful. And this shows us that really when we see someone making a mistake, when we see someone doing something wrong, we should have you know this well wishing in our heart, we should want the best for them. We should pray for them. That Allah Almighty Allah who that

00:35:40--> 00:36:24

Allah guide his heart, Allah Almighty Allah that Allah guide her heart. When you see someone making a mistake, you believe they're doing something wrong. First thing is you should make the offer them and then if you are in a position to advise them, only then advise them and we have discussed the etiquette the adab of you know commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong, but we never have the right to pass judgment on people. Well Illa Hema for some awatea when I fill out yo filoli mania shaohua You're adorable Manisha Willa. Hola Hola Rahim, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Allah's mercy is vast, don't try to limit it. Don't try to restrict it. And remember, the decision to

00:36:24--> 00:37:12

forgive or to punish this decision belongs to Allah alone. It is his right. So do not infringe upon the rights of Allah do not overstep your limit. In a Hadees, we learned that there were two men among the bunny Israel, who are striving for the same goal. And one of them would commit sin, and he both were striving, one of them would commit sin and the other would strive to do his best in the world. And the man who exerted himself in worship, continued to see the other incident. So he would say to him refrain from the sin. And the other would say that you know what, let me be. So one day he found him insane and said to him, leave it to refrain from it, don't do it. But the other said,

00:37:12--> 00:38:01

leave me alone with my Lord, have you been sent as a watchmen over me? So he said, I swear by Allah, Allah will not forgive you. Nor will Allah admit you to paradise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then their souls were taken back by Allah, and they met together with the Lord of the worlds. And Allah subhana wa tada said to this man, who had who strove very hard in the worship of Allah, that did you have knowledge about me? Or did you have power over that which I have in my hand alone? Meaning you get to decide, you get to decide, No, you don't. And he said, Allah subhanaw taala said to the man who sinned, go and enter Paradise by my mercy. And the last panel, Darren said

00:38:01--> 00:38:46

about the other who passed his judgment that Allah will never forgive you. Almost Pousada said about him, take him to hell, stuff it Allah, Kenny. Sometimes we feel very arrogant. And in that arrogance, you know, we think I am better than others, I am doing what is right there committing sin. You know, I wear hijab, they don't, I pray, they don't I do this and they don't, therefore I am better than them. And in that sense of, you know, superiority, we go on passing judgment. And because of that arrogance, we fall in the sight of our Lord. Remember, people are not perfect, Allah subhanaw taala created people like that, that all of the children of Adam committed sin, but the

00:38:46--> 00:39:37

best of those who commit sin are those who seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. But if we are feeling arrogant, and he believes remember, he was also arrogant, then then this is very dangerous, this is very, very toxic, then it is said yeah, Are you her levina Manu latter color Rebbe of the alpha mudaraba or you will have believed do not consume interest doubled and multiplied, what the Hello Hello and welcome to flee home and fear Allah that you may be successful. Now, this is one of the first verses revealed regarding the prohibition of interest that all believers do not consume the river rubber, lighter colored rubber, especially how allow for Mulder have doubled and

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

multiplied compounding interest that it is constantly increasing. Remember that simple interest that is also unlawful and what is simple interest that a person is just paying money for having borrowed money. But compound interest is worse because now a person has to pay interest on the principal amount and

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

The interest. So what's happening, a person is paying interest on interest, and the amount is only increasing, it is only multiplying over time. So in the time of ignorance, what would happen is that when the time to pay a loan came, the creditor would say to the debtor that pay now, or the loan will incur interest. So if we, if he paid the loan off good, and if he didn't, he will charge them interest. And every time that the debtor would ask for deferment of the loan, that Okay, give me six more months. Give me one more year, what would the creditor do the creditor would charge even more interest or now he would charge interest on the initial amount of interest. And this would occur

00:40:44--> 00:41:34

year after year, until that little capital, the little principal amount would become multiplied many times over. So latur kulu, Rebbe of garrafa mudaraba any type of interest is wrong, but especially compounding interest, where you are, you know, constantly taking advantage of the people who are struggling financially, that you're only increasing you know, their their burden on them. This is wrong. So don't do that. What the Hello Hello and welcome to flee home fear Allah so that you may be successful. Now, how come there is a change of topic over here? You see, this is a teachable moment. things in our lives are interconnected. They're not compartmentalised as much as we would want them

00:41:34--> 00:42:24

to be. Here, interest is mentioned within the verses that talk about the instance of Ohio and the loss that the Muslims experienced at the at the Battle of Ohio. Remember that earning unlawful wealth inhibits our ability to worship Allah subhanaw taala, earning unlawful wealth eating haram food, consuming unlawful wealth or through unlawful ways. This is something that weakens us spiritually. Why? Because a person is not exerting self control over here. They have, you know, a temptation that this is an easy way of making a lot of money. This looks like a very good deal. Yes, I know it is wrong, but it's okay. You know, they're they're legalizing it for themselves. They are

00:42:24--> 00:43:15

becoming spiritually weak. And as a result of that, their ability to obey Allah will reduce it will diminish it will weaken over time and earning interest. What is it? This is the height of greed and stinginess also. So think about it. If a person is consuming unlawful wealth, how can they have the strength to obey Allah, much less to strive in the cause of Allah? And if a person is so greedy, that they are exploiting the weak, so stingy, that they're calculating point two 5% over, you know, two months, etc, interest rates? And by that they are increasing their money? Then how can they be willing to make sacrifices in the way of Allah.

00:43:16--> 00:44:05

And you see, it was the love of wealth that caused the archers to leave their posts, they thought the enemy is retreating. So we have one, so get to the battlefield and collect and enjoy the war booty. So greed for wealth, remember, this is destructive. So the Muslims are being advised over here that leave Reba. And this is something that, you know, we should also think about, that sometimes we are struggling in one area of our lives, think about it, that you know, do some introspection, then is there any? Is there any other area of my life where I am disobeying Allah subhanaw taala, where I am oppressing someone where I am treating someone unfairly. And perhaps it

00:44:05--> 00:44:56

is because of my greed, and my, you know, disobedience and my arrogance and that aspect of my life, that it is having an impact on this area of my life. You know, you're on the show very, you know, he said that he complained to his teacher about the weakness of his memory. He said shackled to it, I will carry so heavily, I complain to my teacher, I'll walk here about my bad memory. For all sliney be talking marassi so he advised me that I should leave since I should leave since now think about it. What are you know, what do sins have to do with the strength of your memory? Apparently, there seems to be no tangible connection, no physical connection. But remember, things in this world don't

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

just function, you know, tangibly, there is also in

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

tangible cause and effect, there is you know the physical means and the results of the spiritual means that are in effect. So, his teacher advised him leave since, why he gave the reason he said that knowledge is light, right it is the light of Allah, which is not given to a person who commits since any knowledge is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala, a special light from Allah and it is not going to be given to the person who is constantly proving themselves unworthy. So leave the leave the sins that you commit deliberately, knowingly, this doesn't mean become perfect. Now, what this means is that when you know you are doing something wrong, then leave that. So we see over here that

00:45:46--> 00:46:26

the Muslims are advised that do not consume interest and this introspection, we should also do, what the canal allottee or it that little caffeine and fear the fire which has been prepared for the disbelievers. The threat of Hell is being given over here. And remember, when it comes to the poor ambition of interest, our religion is very, very clear. The verses in the Quran are clear the statements of the Prophet sallallahu Urdu cinema are also very clear. The Prophet salallahu Urdu Sunnah was shown the punishment that was being given to the consumer of interest, a terrible punishment, the Prophet sallallahu where it is, and it was shown that the Prophet sallallahu arias

00:46:26--> 00:47:12

and I'm also said that when Xena and Reba Reba has an interest, when they become prevalent in a town in a population, then such people have presented themselves for the punishment of Allah. So we should all repent, we should all seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala for having ever dealt with interest, and we should make the intention to leave it. We should make the intention to never deal with it again. Never justified Our problem is, unfortunately so many Muslims, we justified the consumption of interest. And a lot of Muslims will say that you know what, in the Quran, Allah said, don't eat. We're not taking ribeye we're paying River. Well guess what? The Prophet sallallahu

00:47:12--> 00:48:00

alayhi wasallam Abdullah Massoud said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cursed Lana, he cursed who the person who consumes interest the person who feeds interest, what does that mean the one who gives it because no one can take it unless someone is willing to give it someone is willing to pay it. And then the people who are witnesses to the contract that involves interest and the person who records it also. So this is something that we should not be justifying. This is something that we should be seeking Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness for and we should be repenting from this. What are three are Allah Rasool Allah Allah come to her moon and obey Allah and the messenger, that you

00:48:00--> 00:48:51

may obtain mercy. You see, success is in obedience to Allah, and obedience to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Sadhguru Isla Amalfi Ratan Mira become and hasten to forgiveness from your Lord. When john nuttin and a garden Sadie rule, you should be rushing towards forgiveness towards seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala not that you start justifying your sins and then and then insist on them, no rush towards forgiveness, Massara is to quickly go towards something to try to get there before others to try to be the first not the last. Now think about it. We compete with one another in worldly matters all the time. Even when it comes to you know driving

00:48:51--> 00:49:40

traffic, we want to be ahead. When it comes to standing in the line. We want to be the first when when it comes to sitting in an airplane we want to be in the first class, we you know, in a test in a class again, we want to have the highest marks when it comes to you know working and getting paid. We want to be the highest paid employee we want our business to be number one, we want to grab the good deals before others sometimes because of scarcity but other times because we want to be better than others. Again, reorient yourself. Sadie are all Isla mo filati mirror have become hasten to words what is better, what we need much more. And what is that forgiveness? Allah subhanaw taala is

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

forgiveness. And what this means is Do not delay in seeking forgiveness. Don't wait for others to seek forgiveness and then you can don't wait for others to leave, you know, since and then you can also think about leaving your sense don't wait for others to change

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

To be better, so that then you can also change and be better. No, you'll be the first Saudi rule, do not delay in doing good things. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, once he finished praying with the companions in the masjid, and right after Salah, the Prophet sallallahu early sent him quickly went home. And when he returned, he saw that, you know, people were confused, they were surprised as to why the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm quickly rushed home. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, that I remembered that there was a piece of gold with me, which was meant for charity, and I did not like to keep it any longer. So I went, and I gave orders

00:50:41--> 00:51:26

that it should be distributed. Anyone something needs to be done something good than do it. Don't delay and do good before it's too late, before the time of regret, because death. Remember, death is not just for those who are old, or for those who are sick, or for those who are, you know, in palliative care, death is for every single one of us. It doesn't matter what we're doing in our lives. It doesn't matter how old or young we are. It doesn't matter what we did yesterday and what we're looking forward to tomorrow. No, we are going to die and death could be at any moment. It could be at any moment. So don't delay doing good. Unless Pousada says and sort of zoom on I 54 to

00:51:26--> 00:52:13

58, the translation of which is and return and repentance to your Lord, and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you, then you will not be helped and follow the best of what was revealed to you from your Lord, before the punishment comes upon you suddenly, while you do not perceive lest a soul should say, or how great is my regret over what I neglected in regard to Allah, and that I was among the markers or less did say, if only Allah had guided me, I would have been among the righteous. So don't wait until then. seek forgiveness now. Do good now. Don't wait any longer and and rush towards forgiveness and Jana widgeon nuttin, what kind of Jenna that you should be seeking

00:52:13--> 00:52:39

our auto Lu has some are worth too well Anbu or a debt limit the pain and a garden as Why does the skies and the earth that has been prepared for the righteous? Yes, Jenna is vast. It is huge. its width has been mentioned over here that imagine the expanse of the skies and the earth how massive it is. That is the expanse of paradise.

00:52:41--> 00:52:41

And

00:52:43--> 00:53:30

Jenna is so huge that in our heads, we learn that the people of Paradise will enter Paradise and there will still remain some parts of it, which will be uninhabited. So Allah subhanaw taala will create another creation, and he will place them in Jenna. So how do you get there? And this is john nice for who who are a little more pain for the people who have the COA, who are the people who have Taqwa. Let's look at the qualities and think about ourselves, first of all, and levena Yun Falcone is some raw he will the raw he there are those who spend during ease and hardship. Meaning they spend on good causes in the way of Allah in charity. When when they have a lot of money. No, even

00:53:30--> 00:54:14

when they have a little bit. When they are healthy and everything's good in life. No, even when they're unwell. And they're struggling personally, for serraj II, what the raw in ease and in hardship. And remember, spending is a habit. Those people who have a habit of giving, don't see the amount of money that they have, they find a way to give in every situation and people who give habitually who spend on others habitually in the night and in the day. Allah subhanaw taala says about them and so called Bukhara io 274 that, that follow him or doodle Homer indorama him they will have their reward with their Lord will our Hoefler lay him Allah Haumea has alone and they will have

00:54:14--> 00:54:59

no fear and will not be sad. Allah subhanaw taala will take their fear and their sadness, their grief, their regret away, Allah subhanaw taala will give them true happiness, eternal happiness. So how do you get there by spending and spending is a habit don't just wait to you know have you know a great source of income or you know a huge amount of money sitting with you so that then you can give charity start giving now with whatever that you have. The Prophet sallallahu earlier seldom advised a smart Radulov more on her that do not lead to a Do not be retentive and you don't keep on you know keeping money in your purse and then closing it. You know

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

Keeping it tight and closed, do not be retentive, or Allah will be retentive with you, meaning, if you are stingy that Allah subhanaw taala will also limit things for you, and then spend as much as you can, he said it, luckily, must authority, give whatever the two are able to. Well, Kelly, Mina Hale, and those who restrain anger, this is also a habit, you see, Lail is more than Hold up, it is rage, it is very common anger. And it could be because of, you know, something that a person dislikes that has happened that has caused them to become angry, or it could be because of no reason. So, feeling anger, remember, this is normal, you don't always have control over the emotion.

00:55:47--> 00:56:34

And anger can actually be a healthy emotion, and the trigger for this emotion, it really doesn't matter. What matters is how is it that you are expressing this emotion. And when it comes to expressing our emotions, then remember, we actually have control over there are two parts to an emotion, the feeling, and the expression, the feeling, you don't have control over. Anger just comes right, you're you're just feeling upset. Sometimes you can identify the trigger, and other times you don't. But the expression of anger of this emotion is something that you do have control over and expressing anger, yes, it is very satisfying at the moment when you get to lash out when you just

00:56:34--> 00:57:27

get to say whatever that you want. But it becomes a cause of regret, and shame and embarrassment, a person ends up damaging oneself and others. So what is needed will kill the mean. And Callum is to keep a tight control over something. Imagine there is water or or think of milk that is boiling, right that is bubbling? What do you have to do? If you let it boil over? If you let it come out, then have fun cleaning up that mess? Right? If you see that milk is bubbling, what do you do, you lower the heat, right? You you turn the heat off, you put the lid on it. And just like that, when there is a tendency to explode, don't allow yourself to explode, because then the mess will be very

00:57:27--> 00:57:28

difficult to clean.

00:57:30--> 00:58:16

What is needed is that we become attentive to ourselves that you know what I am feeling very upset over here. And then you'll reduce the heat right? you minimize the heat, reduce the triggers, and this is why we have been told that we should you know change our position, we should go elsewhere we should go make will do. Why? Because when you disconnect yourself from what is causing you to be angry, you distance yourself from it, you go into the other room, right you you start reading something, you start doing something different than you are allowing yourself to not feel that you're basically not allowing that emotion to constantly bubble within you. So minimize that. And

00:58:16--> 00:58:58

remember that a person who doesn't feel anger is not necessarily strong, because it shows that a person doesn't care. It shows that a person is unfazed. They're not passionate about anything. They're very dull, feeling anger, anger itself is an emotion that Allah subhanaw taala has created within us and it can be very healthy. But controlling that anger is necessary. expressing it in the right way is necessary and strength is in controlling that anger. And we learned in the Hadees that whoever controls his anger than Allah subhanaw taala will will withhold his punishment from him in you control that anger and Allah subhanaw taala will protect you a man as the Prophet sallallahu

00:58:58--> 00:59:43

earlier said I'm telling me about something which I can do that will admit me into paradise. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said let Allah Malecon gender Do not get angry, and for you is paradise. This doesn't mean that do not feel the emotion of anger, because that is something you don't have control over. But do not express that anger do not explode in that anger. While our feanor and in NASS and those who pardon people, this is also a habit. If a person has a habit of overlooking people's faults, then they are in a better, you know, state to control their anger. But if a person dwells on the errors of people, counting them and focusing on them, then anger will be

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

very difficult to control. So while our feanor an illness, there are those who pardon people. Why do they pardon because people are perfect, because they never did anything wrong. No. Pardon because Allah subhanaw taala loves it. Well, love was over gela full

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

When you have Bulava, Allah subhanaw taala is ever forgiving, and he loves to forgive. We learned that,

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

that

01:00:10--> 01:00:52

that some prisoners were brought to one of the leaders. And he asked someone that What should I do? And he was advised that look, Allah subhanaw taala gave you what you like. And that is victory, right? It's because of this victory that that these prisoners were brought to you. So you give what Allah subhanaw taala loves and that is pardon. Allah gave you what you like, Allah Subhana Allah give you victory. So now you give what Allah subhanaw taala likes, and that is forgiveness and pardon, meaning you forgive these people, you pardon them, you let them go, and he did let them go. So Well, our feanor and a nurse. Well, luckily, you have been more sinning. And Allah loves the

01:00:52--> 01:01:32

doers of good. The people who do good illustrations are loves the more singing and remember your son is your son towards people, right? But there's also your son, in the worship of Allah, that a person worships a line an excellent way. And this is something we really need to think about. What is the state of our worship? How do we praise Allah? Right? Just think about Salah. How do we praise Allah? How focused are we? how humble are we? Are we praying as though we can see Allah? And if we cannot bring about that feeling? Can we at least remember that Allah is watching us? So where our hands going, where our eyes going? What is it that we're constantly thinking about? Did we make proper

01:01:32--> 01:02:13

will do? Are we dressed appropriately? And what is it that we are reciting in Salah? Do we know what we're saying? Are we rushing through it? Are we just saying things without even thinking about them? Honey, this is not air sad. So we'll know who you Hipple more sinning. Allah loves those who do good. And the other type of their son is that with with people, and that is what is mentioned over here spending on people and then you know, controlling anger and then forgiving people. Then it is said we're living either far loofa heisha turn and those who when they commit an immorality, they commit an immorality Yes, because they're not perfect. A lot more unforced a home, are they wrong

01:02:13--> 01:03:11

themselves. The Corolla they remember Allah for stole farolito newbie him and they seek forgiveness for their sins, Allahu Akbar. You see, to make mistakes, To err is human. Every human makes mistakes, could lose money Adam has taught every child of Adam are all children of Adam are hooked up, meaning they all make mistakes, even the believer commits since in a Hades we learn that there is no believing slave, except that he commits a sin time after time, and he commits it until he leaves the world. The believer has been created such that he is tested a lot. he repents a lot, he forgets, but when he is reminded he takes heed. This is important. Yes, you are not perfect. Yes,

01:03:11--> 01:03:51

you will keep falling in sin because you're human. And each person has their own struggles, their own weaknesses. They try to get better, they try to improve themselves, and then they end up falling in another sin and then another sin. So what is necessary? What is necessary is that God will law her first don't follow Lydon obey Him, that we remember Allah and when we remember Allah, we seek forgiveness for our sins. We seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. I know her these return either are milta so he attends during the hotel button, that when you when you do something bad when you do something evil when you commit a sin, then make Toba when you realize you've done something

01:03:51--> 01:04:37

wrong make Toba a simple be silly, will alanya to be alanya if it was a sin committed in in private, then make Toba in private, but if it was a sin that was committed in public that make Toba in public in through to Nisa I 110. We learn when a yarmulke Sue an alumna of Soho. So Maya stokfella, URI dilla have a photo of rahima that whoever does something wrong, whoever commits a sin, wrongs himself and then he seeks forgiveness from Allah, he will find a lot to be forgiving and merciful. We don't have the Hadees that the police said that, that Oh Allah by our might and Your Honor, I will continue to mislead the children of Adam as long as their souls remain in them. And Allah

01:04:37--> 01:04:59

subhanaw taala responded that yes, by my honor and by my might, I will continue to forgive them as long as they keep seeking forgiveness from me. So make a habit of seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala 70 times a day 100 times a day stuff little simple stuff that Allah stuff that Allah means. I seek forgiveness or Allah right

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

seek forgiveness from Allah. So I say that 100 times and make it a habit every single day. Make it a point to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala well may y'all feel with the noble Illa Allah and who can forgive sins except Allah. And if you think about it a sin has been committed against to against Allah. So it is only Allah who can forgive. While I'm you Sir, you are Allah ma Farah Lu, WA homie, Allah moon and who do not persist in what they have done. While they know. Meaning they don't knowingly persist. They learn from their mistakes, and they practice different things in order to avoid the same mistakes. They work on changing themselves improving themselves, Ola eco Jessa omo

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

Those they reward is forgiveness from their Lord when Jeanette when tragedy mentality and how to highly been a fee her and gardens beneath which rivers flow in paradise where they will abide eternally when near a Doodle Army lean and excellent is the reward of the workers digital army lean Armenian those who work are the herdsmen. Kublai Khan sooner known similar situations as yours have passed on before you fussy rule fill out. So proceed throughout the earth fun little kafer can are people to look at the bean and observe how was the end of those who denied. So here, the context is now back to the situation that are heard that the believers who suffered

01:06:30--> 01:07:18

losses in the Battle of word including 70 Muslims who had died who were killed, he it said over here that look at what happened to the previous nations who followed their profits before you they also suffered loss. But the good end was for who for those who followed their profits, and the ultimate defeat was for who for those who disbelieved fun Lu k for Kanaka Toluca, VB those who denied never succeeded. So don't think that here if your enemy managed to harm you a little bit, cause they caused you some kind of suffering. Don't think that they have one they have not had are by unruliness, wha hoo done woman were illiterate women were allowed to live with the pain. This Quran

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

is a clear statement to all the people

01:07:21--> 01:08:07

it is beyond and beyond meaning it is clarification. So the Quran explains the true reality of things. And it narrates how, you know, the people of the past, for example, suffered by the hands of their enemies. So by an alumnus, there's so much you know, clarity that the Quran brings where who done the Quran is a guidance, how is it a guidance, because it's a guidance for your hearts. You see, when you're feeling down the Quran uplifts you, when we're when you're feeling weak, the Quran strengthens you warmer, we're able to deal with the pain. And it is an instruction for those who are conscious of Allah. Mo Allah is an instruction that really hits your hearts. And it really moves you

01:08:07--> 01:08:13

to change. And this is the Quran that it teaches us. It really helps us, you know,

01:08:15--> 01:09:02

learn that lesson, so that we stay away from things that Allah subhanaw taala has, has prohibited and we focus on doing things which Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do well after he know well after he has no so do not weaken and do not grieve, do not we can do not feel weak because of what you have suffered. When others no one do not breathe, don't don't dwell on your loss. What unterman are alone are in control mode, meaning and you will be superior. If you are true believers, if you're truly believers, if you're a man is truth, and Allah subhanaw taala will give you success. So here, what is being discouraged is that we we feel weak, or rather, we believe that we are weak.

01:09:02--> 01:09:50

We should not think like that. When we know that we have the help of Allah. Well, yes, we admit we're not perfect. We admit that we have weaknesses, but don't believe about yourself that I am unable that there is no way I can do this. This kind of weakness of heart. weakness of determination is very unhealthy, that a person is constantly putting themselves down. There's no way I could do this. You know, I've always failed at this, I will fail at this. No, don't say such negative things when after he No. Yes, you suffer the loss over here. But that doesn't mean you're a failure. A loss does not define you. Well, that doesn't know and do not dwell on your grief either. Why? Because if

01:09:50--> 01:10:00

you dwell on your sadness, that you're just sad and sad and sad, then what's going to happen you're not going to be able to focus on what you have to do. So such such thoughts are

01:10:00--> 01:10:45

very toxic, they're very detrimental. They are not going to help you become successful. What until are Alona in control meaning you will be superior if you are true believers so strengthen your faith strengthen your obedience to Allah soprano Toronto and success will come your way. Em sesco are home for Kadoma, selkoe makaha Miss Lu, if a wound should touch you, there has already touched the opposing people a wound similar to it. Meaning Have you suffered injuries in the Battle of or hurt than what happened in the Battle of butter before? Did your enemy not suffer injuries at your hand? Many, and if you suffered a loss, meaning you had, you know, a loss of people 70 companions were

01:10:45--> 01:11:27

martyred at the Battle of or hurt than what happened in the Battle of brother. Didn't you inflict double that loss on your enemy? 70 of them you killed in 70 you took us prisoners. So yes, a wound touched you right now. But look at what your enemy faced previously. They didn't give up. Why are you giving up and out of a wound, the Muslims did suffer many injuries. Even the Prophet sallallahu earlier son was injured at the Battle of birth. And we learned about that earlier. But how the face of the Prophet salallahu early was sudden was bleeding. The helmet that he was wearing on his head was smashed. And Father Manuel de la Mourinho after the battle, she was washing the blood off of the

01:11:27--> 01:12:17

wounds of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But when the bleeding was not stopping, she had to burn a mat until it turned into ashes. And then she had to put the ashes on the wound in order to stop the bleeding and that is how the bleeding ceased. And then so many companions were killed. So it is said what to call a Yamanaka will have been a nurse and these days we alternate among the people, meaning out of Allah subhanaw taala his wisdom, it so happens that one one time, one team is successful is victorious. And the other time another team is victorious, successful, meaning one person, one team, one group of people is not always victorious, we suffer a loss and we suffer victory. Any This is

01:12:17--> 01:13:05

something normal, this is something that happens. And this is by Allah subhanaw taala his wisdom. And remember when he Arla Mullah who Lavina amanu were Ducky them in come show her that there is wisdom in this if you suffered loss or hurt, then there there is also some benefit some something that came out of it and what is that so that Allah may make evident those who believe were the hidden income Shahada and may take to himself from among you, martyrs. Well, Lola your hair below the mean and Allah does not like the wrongdoers. So yes, this this loss was difficult, but look at the gain. What happened? First of all, Allah subhanaw taala made evident those who believe any, this

01:13:05--> 01:13:51

is the time when the hypocrisy of the hypocrites was revealed. And the belief of the believers was also revealed because the people who remained steadfast it really showed that they that they were true believers. Secondly, with the hidden income shuhada 70 companions were taken as martyrs. Any they got the rank of martyrs? Well, Lola you have below mean Allah does not like the wrongdoers. So never think that what the wrongdoers did at this time was something good. No, it's not good unless puntata does not does not like it, but it happened by the permission of Allah. Thirdly, while uma is Allahu Allah Dena amanu, and that Allah May purify the believers, how? Because it has difficulties

01:13:51--> 01:14:44

that purify us trials, difficulties, sometimes losses, they show us what our weaknesses are, so that we may correct ourselves. And then why I'm Heckle Catherine, the fourth is an an Allah may destroy the disbelievers how, apparently, it seems as though I know the enemy was very successful over here. How is it that they would be destroyed because this led them to increase in their sin to increase in their opposition to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and that became a cause of their annihilation way I'm how carefully so the fact is, that a believer always wins. The believer always gains how when there is success when there is a gain, then the believer is grateful. And when there

01:14:44--> 01:14:59

is some difficulty some loss than the believer is patient and a believer puts their trust in Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala brings so much good out of that situation. But this is only for those who believe me Allah subhanaw taala give

01:15:00--> 01:15:13

That wisdom, that patience and that understanding. inshallah we will conclude over here subhanak Allahumma behenic eyeshadow Allah ilaha illa Anta esto Furukawa Tobu la casa Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
