Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

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

Are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim er Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish raha sadi away a Siddeley MD wash Lola rock data melissani of Cabo poly Allahumma de Kirby was sadly Sani whistles of him at akorbi erminia open alameen

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

saw that earlier imraan insha Allah we will begin from verse number 156

00:02:00--> 00:02:18

almost parameter that says yeah, you have levina armano latur Kunal kar levina cafaro all you who have believed, do not be like those who disbelieved. Were cannoli horny him either Babu Phil are we Oh, Kanu was

00:02:19--> 00:03:06

and said about their brothers when they're traveled through the land or went out to fight. What did they say, lo can or Indiana mama to warmer Cthulhu if they had been with us, they would not have died or have been killed. So all believers, you should not say such things. You see the Battle of boyhood, we learned that many Muslims were killed. Many Muslims were martyred about 70 of them. And some people said regarding them that had they not gone out with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had been not participated in the battle, then they would not have been killed. And people like Abdullah bin obey the chief hypocrite, and he went out with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:03:06--> 00:03:57

sallam but then he came back to Medina and 300 people returned to Medina with him. So some people said regarding the Muslims who had been martyred, that they would have been safe and sound at home, had they not gone with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this kind of thinking is being prohibited over here. Why? Because this kind of thinking is actually very dangerous. This kind of thinking does not befit a believer. In fact, it goes against the very beliefs of a Muslim. So it is said over here that all you will believe, do not be like those who disbelieve like those who don't believe. And they're the ones who say such things. They're the ones who who don't believe in

00:03:57--> 00:04:53

further. They're the ones who don't believe that everything happens by the will of Allah. So all believers don't imitate what others say. Don't. Don't just copy what others say. And say it without thinking, check does check yourself that do such statements even? Do such statements even aligned with your faith? Or do they contradict your faith? So the thing is that the time and place of death, for every person is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala it has been decided by Allah soprano tada and Allah is the one who causes death. Allah is the one who allows people to die. It is not a place It is not a disease. It is not an event that becomes the cause of someone's death. Yes, the disease can

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

be a means, but it can never be a cause because there are many people who become sick by the same disease but

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

They don't necessarily die because of that, the cause is who it is the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. So, do not say such things that if I had done this, if I had not done that, if they had done this, if they had not done that, then such and such would not have happened, they would not have died. Because these kinds of statements do not befit a believer. It is said ledger, Allah, Allah who gallica has certain fuchal obey Him. So Allah makes that misconception, a regret within their hearts. Any such such faults or beliefs are only a source of hustle for a person. They're only a source of regret for a person. And what is hustler hustler is regret over what has slipped one's

00:05:48--> 00:06:34

hands, meaning there's no way that one can retrieve it, there is no going back now. And if a person remains in the state of regret and sadness over what they have lost, then they will never find relief, they will always be in agony. It is imperative that we accept the decree of Allah and move forward with it. It doesn't mean that we have to, you know, not feel any sadness. No, of course we feel sadness. But hustla is that a person keeps thinking about the past. They're stuck in the past, that if only I had been there or if only they had not been there, then such and such would not have happened. So there is no going back. There's no reversing. So it is necessary that we accept the

00:06:34--> 00:07:26

decree of Allah. We say in Nadella he was in LA he Raji rune, we say, other Allah who this is the decree of Allah when I shot a foreign and whatever Allah wants, he does, meaning it is the will of Allah subhanaw taala that prevails and then we move forward. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that be keen on what benefits you and seek help from Allah and do not give up and if anything afflicts you then do not say if I had done such and such, then such and such would not have happened. Do not say if why, because if opens the door to shaitan any This is something that welcomes shaitan rather you should say Allah has decreed and whatever he wills he does bother Allah

00:07:26--> 00:08:14

wa Masha Allah for Allah. This is what we should say, When love who you're here where you need Allah who be my Dharma Luna proceed, and it is Allah who gives life and causes death and Allah is seeing of what you do. So remember, that Allah is the one who causes life and death, we learned in certain work led holla call motor while higher, that Allah is the one who has created death, and he has also created life. So no person can die, except by the permission of Allah. Whether in hotel Tom feasable, Allah, and if you were killed in the way of Allah, O Mouton or you die, meaning in the way of Allah, then Lama Pharaoh to mean Allah He will Ramadan, Hiram, my edge, my own, then forgiveness

00:08:14--> 00:09:01

from Allah and mercy are better than whatever that they accumulate meaning forgiveness from Allah and Allah's mercy are better than everything in the world. So the people who were killed that are owed, remember that they died in the way of Allah, and death is something inevitable, sooner or later, not everyone is going to die, every person is going to die. And if a person dies in the way of Allah, then that is actually an honor, because it is the beginning of something that is much better. So we see over here the death in the way of Allah brings forgiveness and mercy. And that is better than everything in the world. Well, that emoto Aqua Tilton let Illallah heater Sharon, and

00:09:01--> 00:09:46

whether you die meaning a natural death or are killed, then unto Allah, you will be gathered. Again, death is something definite, there is absolutely no escape from it. So don't spend your life trying to run away from death obsessing over you know, somehow saving your life. This doesn't mean that a person should be careless. No a person should be careful. But being careful does not mean that a person doesn't do anything that a person just stays at home in life, you have to take risks. And so when you take those risks, when you're out in the way of Allah when you're out to do something good, and if you face you experience any kind of hardship along the way, then don't say things like if

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

only I had not gone out, if only I had not done this, no accept that as the decree of Allah. Then it is said Fabi mal rahmati min Allah He Ling tala home. So it is by mercy for

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

Allah or messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you were lenient with them. Allah subhanaw taala is praising the gentleness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his leniency towards the companions. Generally we associate gentleness with weakness, but it is not actually weakness. It is a source of strength, because gentleness, what it does is that it strengthens a group. And it is only when the hearts are together, when people are willing to accept one another, work with one another, that they will have strength. So, it is out of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy that you are lenient with them. So this shows us that if someone is lenient with you, someone is

00:10:47--> 00:11:35

gentle with you. That is Allah subhanaw taala has mercy on you. And if a person shows gentleness towards others, if a person is lenient with others, that is also Allah subhanaw taala has mercy on them. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed very gentle towards the companions. This doesn't mean that he didn't, you know, he didn't set any expectations for them. No, he did. But he was lenient with them in the sense that he didn't he was not always reprimanding them, and getting upset with them, and focusing on their mistakes and their errors, rather, his manner, his behavior with them, his language with them, not just his words, but even his body language, all of that was

00:11:35--> 00:12:18

very soft, and that is what what caused the companions to be attracted to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and to listen to him, and to obey Him, because you see, if someone is constantly focusing on your faults, always correcting you always, you know, nagging you, Oh, you did this wrong, or you did that wrong, or this is not right, and that is not right. Then when you feel constantly policed, you want to run away from such people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very particular about the rules that Allah subhanaw taala had revealed, he was not someone to compromise on them, but his manner with the companions was very gentle Fabi mal rahmati min Allah,

00:12:18--> 00:13:03

He Lin tala home, and even when he corrected them, he corrected them in a very soft way in a very gentle way. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that gentleness is not in anything, except that it makes it beautiful. It makes that that entire experience very beautiful. In another Hadees, we learned that no people have a house. We know people have a family, people who live in the same house are given gentleness, except that it will benefit them. And we think that we have to be ultra strict with our children in order to benefit them. And part of that strictness is that we're very harsh towards them, you know, always giving them that that firms stare and those rude remarks, you

00:13:03--> 00:13:48

know, keep them you know, you know, fearful so that they will respect you and then they will obey you. This is not the way because they will obey you in front of you, but then what will happen the moment they leave your presence. So, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sedums teaching is what that no people of a house are given gentleness except that it will benefit them. And they are not deprived of it, except that it will harm them. When people are harsh towards each other, then this is something that is detrimental when spouses are harsh with each other. And this is something that was that that is very dangerous for the family. When parents and children they're harsh with each other.

00:13:48--> 00:14:37

When mother in law daughter in law, you know, any people when they are harsh with each other than this is something that is harmful for them. So we see over here the qualities of a model leader of a dari someone who is inviting people to Allah, that first and foremost they must be lenient and gentle. And remember that this gentleness towards others it comes from a place of deep concern, genuine care, that when you truly want good for others, when you have good for others in your heart, and you want the best for them, then you will be gentle with them. And Saratoga will learn about the Prophet sallallahu early he was alone, that la caja a camera solo man and forsaken, Aziz en la Hema

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

I need to learn that this messenger that has come to you, it is very difficult for him to see you suffer. And he doesn't. He doesn't like it when you experience hardship. Harrison Aleykum he's very eager for you, meaning he wants the best for you. Bill meaning or offer Rahim and with the believers. He says

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Specially kind, compassionate merciful. This is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was towards the companions. Then it is said, Well, I couldn't have fallen earlier. Well, Colby Lanford boom in Howe lake. And if you had been rude and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So this shows us that a person who is harsh, yes, they're deprived of mercy. Because this is mentioned in contrast to the first statement, it is out of Allah's mercy, that you are gentle with them. And if you were harsh, rude, meaning you did not have that mercy, then the people would have dispersed from around you. So if a person is harsh towards others, it means that they have been

00:15:45--> 00:16:34

deprived of Allah's mercy. And this is something that we should cry to Allah subhanaw taala about beg him that he or Allah grant me, gentleness, Grant me softness, Grant me leniency and Farben hollywell, calm follow is someone who is harsh in their speech, meaning they're very rude in the words that they use, whether it is the manner that you know, the style of speaking, or the choice of words, all of that harsh, rude, mean, lovely, low carb, really low carb, meaning someone who is harsh in heart. So if a person is harsh and heart, it means that they have no compassion for others. So it means that their actions towards others will also be harsh. So follow is rude in speech, and

00:16:34--> 00:17:23

really low carb, this is what is reflected in a person's behavior in a person's actions. So what is mentioned over here, that if you are Prophet sallallahu, earlier sent him were rude and harsh, then people the companions would have disbanded from about you. So this shows us that rudeness makes a person lonely, because nobody wants to be around someone who is harsh. Nobody wants to put up with someone who is crew, meaning no matter how, no matter what your status is, no matter how important you may be, if you are harsh and rude, people will not put up with you, even your close loved ones will not put will not put up with you. Because you see, what is mentioned over here is that even the

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

companions would not put up with a rude Prophet, imagine people would not stick around a prophet who is rude. So what do you think? Will people stick around a mother who is rude, a father who is harsh, a sibling, a spouse, a neighbor, whoever, you know, a co worker, a boss, a teacher, any if we want to be with people, if we want to build good, healthy relationships, then it is necessary that we become gentle in our speech, and we become gentle in our behavior. instead of always blaming other people. We need to look at ourselves that how am I talking? How am I speaking? What kind of words Am I using? Is this even necessary to say, Is this even necessary to correct learn to overlook the

00:18:18--> 00:19:03

mistakes of people? Every single error does not have to be pointed out because people learn through experience. So well. Oh couldn't have fallen Honeywell called Langford bloomin Holic, if you were, you know, harsh, always insulting people, making them feel like they're nothing you know, being cruel towards them, then they would not put up with you, they would have left you. So the Prophet sallallahu early asylums, a HELOC, his behavior his manner was so beautiful. We learn in the Quran that we're in luck Allah Allah hollowpoint Aleem Allah subhanaw taala says that you are upon a great character, meaning his character was the best. In fact, we learned that he was sent to perfect good

00:19:03--> 00:19:50

character, his luck, the companion said that the Prophet sallallahu Arizonan was not faddish or modify harsh any vulgar, obscene rude mean, he was not like that. And the Prophet sallallahu are you sending was approachable? And even when he had to correct someone, he corrected them in the best way are Chateau de la Mourinho. And you she mentioned about how the Prophet sallallahu or Lucena would not, you know point people out by name. rather he would say, What is the matter with people that they are saying such and such or that they're doing such and such? Because when people are mentioned by name, and their mistake is mentioned, then they feel attacked, and then they don't want to, you

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

know, accept what you're telling them. And then we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not someone who would beat others. I shall deal on Mourinho said the Prophet sallallahu arias

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

never hit anyone, not a woman, not a servant. This is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was any, this is a HELOC, this is good character. And if a person dares to, you know, beat others, especially one spouse or servant, any what kind of luck is this, the Prophet sallallahu or do something was especially patient with people and he would never ask people that why did you not do such and such, and Why did you do such and such, and he was even merciful towards his enemies. Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was requested that pray against the machete King and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I have not been sent as Laren and as someone who

00:20:47--> 00:21:34

invokes curses on people, rather I have been sent as a mercy to the people. So it is said far foreign home Western Villa home wash our we're home Phil, Allah soprano tada praises the gentleness the leniency of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then it is said so you should pardon them, meaning the companions and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. You see, the companions made a huge mistake at hurt and Allah zoa gela intercedes for them over here, that O Messenger of Allah, you should forgive them, you should overlook their mistake. And then you should also seek forgiveness for them from Allah subhanaw taala and this teaches us that you know, when you

00:21:34--> 00:22:02

see that, for example, a mother is upset with her children or that a person in a position of authority is upset, you know with others, the leader is upset, the boss is upset, you know, the husband is upset, then you should intercede over there, you should remind them to be gentle, you should ask them to overlook the mistake the to forgive. And then it aside over here for foreign home was still fella home, wash our we're home Phil

00:22:03--> 00:22:51

and consult them in the matter. Allah o'clock. You see when someone disappoints you, when they don't meet your expectations. You think of distancing yourself from them. But Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger sallallahu Urdu, send them over here, that you should consult the companions. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had consulted them with regard to and it is as though that has been praised over here that yes, you consulted them. And that was good, even though the results were not favorable. But the process was right. So keep it up? Or shall we at home, Phil, continue to consult them in the future as well in regard to different matters? So we see over here that if the

00:22:51--> 00:23:45

Prophet salallahu, Urdu Southern was to consult the companions, then what do you think about the rest of us? It is not correct, to make decisions on one's own when the matter concerns many people. But remember, consultation isn't some matters, not all, and consultation is with those who are concerned. Not everyone, even Ambassador della horn, who recited this, as was, shall we at home feed barley, consult them in some matters. So who is it that is supposed to be consulted? It is the people who are directly related to the work those who have to do the work. So before making a decision, ask them, ask them for their suggestions, what are their preferences? How would they like

00:23:45--> 00:24:29

to do the work? You know, what is it that their experience says? What is it that they would like to do? And what is it that they would not like to do and if you don't consult them and if you make if you take matters in your own hand and you just decide and dictate as if you were a dictator. This is very unhealthy for a team, because then people do not want to work anymore. They feel that they're not being accepted. They're not being honored, they're not being appreciated within the team. So consultation takes you to a better decision. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a dictator. he consulted his companions regarding important matters. And we see several occasions

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

where the Prophet salallahu Urdu said I'm consulted the companions, even before the Battle of whether, when they had two options, you know, go towards the caravan, or meet the army, the Prophet sallallahu artesanal consulted the companions because they had to do the job. He didn't just decide and tell them. Then we see even with regard to the Prophet sallallahu earlier send them ask them, even when it comes to them, any how to call people to prayer, the Prophet sallallahu or loosing them consulted them. Then it is said for either resumed

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

The fatawa killer Allah Allah in Allahu hibben with our Killeen, then when you have decided then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely upon him for either or Zamka when you have decided, meaning be decisive. And who is it that has to be decisive the leader meeting when a group of people are working together, first of all, there should be clarity, who is the leader, who is the person who makes the final call. And that leader should be very clear to everybody, because someone has to take the lead. If everyone begins to think that they're the leader, then there's going to be chaos. So the leader must step up otherwise the team is going to be in chaos. And once the leader

00:25:46--> 00:26:34

makes the final call that okay, based on the consultation, this seems to be the best thing to do, then fatawa can be decisive and put your trust in Allah. Why do we become indecisive indecision comes from a fear of failing, and it's very natural to have that fear. But we must counter that fear by putting our trust in Allah. Because if we don't make that decision, you know, if we're not decisive, and we're always changing our mind, let's do this. Oh, no, no, no, let's do that. Instead. Let's do that. Instead, instead, we change our mind, then it becomes, you know, very foolish, it becomes the whole matter becomes very chaotic, and it becomes a scene so far either zonta fatawa

00:26:34--> 00:27:26

karnala. counter that fear by putting your trust in Allah and Allah loves those people who put their trust in Him. It is said he on sort of comala who follow Holly Bella calm, if Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you at all what he can, but if he should forsake you for manvel levy on soracom embody, then who is there that can aid you after him. It doesn't matter how solid your plan is, if Allah subhanaw taala does not aid you, then nothing of yours will suffice you. So the most important thing is that you seek help from Allah, you make sure that you're doing what will bring about the help of Allah, Allah Allah He finally at our Kelly me known and upon Allah, let the believers rely.

00:27:26--> 00:28:13

Because if Allah subhanaw taala intends to benefit a slave, then no one can harm him. And I had these we learned the Prophet sallallahu earlier set him said that you should know that if the entire nation were to gather together to benefit you, then they would not be able to benefit you, except with something that Allah subhanaw taala had already decreed for you. And if the entire nation were to gather together to harm you, then they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah subhanaw taala had already decreed for you. So put your trust in Allah and make your matters and correct your matters with Allah. Wa can Alina be in a yellow hole, it is not

00:28:14--> 00:29:07

attributable to any Prophet, that he would act unfaithfully the Prophet sallallahu earlier said his character is being exonerated over here, that he is free from all types of deceit, and treachery. That it is not possible that a Prophet would commit Hulu and your hula and Hulu is to steal, it has to take secretly from war booty. And in terms of a profit, any rule would be to not convey what he is obligated to convey or to cheat in regard to the wealth that he has been entrusted with. But a prophet of Allah is free of such betrayal. It is incorrect to even think that a prophet of Allah would betray even our basketball de la Mourinho said that this IO was revealed in regard to a red

00:29:07--> 00:29:53

robe that went missing from the spoils of war. Some people said that the Messenger of Allah might have taken it. So Allah subhanaw taala reveal this verse, that How could you even think of the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm like that it is said Well, my Yahoo lol yet to be mahalaya Well, qiyamah and whoever betrays taking unlawfully will come with what he took on the Day of Resurrection. And if a person steals from public property, yes, other people might never find out about it in this life. Yes, this is a very secret, you know, behind the doors action, that secretly a person goes in and takes what is not theirs. But it is mentioned over here, that whoever commits

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

this kind of theft, this kind of treachery, they will have to bring that item or whatever

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

property they stole on the Day of Judgment. They can hide today, but on the Day of Judgment, that item that that property will be with them. So in this we learn from Angela Shea and OTB hayyan will qiyamah. Whoever will commit to treachery with regard to something meaning he steals it, then he will have to bring it on the Day of Judgment. in Hades. We're in a long heydays of Hollywood and it'll be a lot more under reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, addressed the people. And he mentioned regarding Hulu, and he declared it to be a serious matter and a grave sin. He declared it to be a serious matter and a grave sin. You see, if people assume that maybe the

00:30:45--> 00:31:30

Prophet salallahu alaihe salam took that robe, then what is it that they were thinking that it's okay to do that? If the Prophet sallallahu? Or is it did it it's okay for us to do it. But no, the Prophet sallallahu already said I'm never did it. And don't even ever think that about him. And no one, no one can do Hulu, because if someone does it, they will have to bring that property on the Day of Judgment. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was addressing the people. And he declared Hulu to be a serious matter of grave sin. And then he said that I should not find any of you coming to me on the Day of Judgment with a growlin camel on his back. And then he comes and asks

00:31:30--> 00:32:17

me begs me for help saying or messenger Billa help me and I will say I have no authority to help you. I already conveyed to you. And he this shows us that if a person has stolen something from public property in this life, then what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment, a person will come carrying that item on their back. So imagine a camel, if a person stole he will bring it on his back and that camel will not be quiet. It will be growling, yet TB mahala right that that property is going to make noise it's going to make it known that this person committed theft, the Prophet sallallahu earlier and then mentioned a sheep bleating sheep, he mentioned fluttering clothes, any

00:32:17--> 00:33:05

clothes even that will be fluttering and therefore making noise and attracting attention, you know basically making it known everywhere that this person committed theft. So we should be very careful. We should not treat public property as if it were our own, especially when it comes to the property of the Muslims. So for example, what is in the masjid, we cannot take whatever that we please. You know, this is not this is one of the worst forms of theft. Then it is said summer to our Falcon lunasin Makka Saba to whom la EULA moon, then will every soul be fully compensated for what it earned, and they will not be wronged. So a person who commits such kind of theft will be compensated

00:33:05--> 00:33:50

in full. We should make Toba to Allah, we should seek forgiveness from Allah because this is a huge sin, a huge sin. We learned that a good deeds of a person will be nullified because of a sin like this. Robin Hood Barbara de la hora. And who said that on the day of labor, a group of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him came and said that so until has been martyred. So and so has been martyred. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding one man that no, I saw him in the fire because of a clock, a sheet of cloth that he stole from the war booty, Allahu Akbar. Even though this person was just killed in jihad, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu

00:33:50--> 00:34:45

Sam said I saw him in the fire. Why? Because of a piece of cloth that he stole. So stealing something from the property of the Muslims, even if it is something very tiny, like that, like a needle. In a hadith we learn about a needle that a person has stolen. And even that is a grave sin. It is something punishable. Then it is said FM Manitoba or the leeuwin Allah he come and bat a be so happy mean Allah, Allah wa Johanna webit, Salma Slade, so is one who pursues the pleasure of Allah, like one who brings upon himself the anger of Allah, and whose refuges hell, and wretched is the destination. You see the Muslims are hurt. When they went to a hurt, they went to pursue the

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and their enemies would come from Makkah, they came and returned with the Wrath of Allah. Even though on the surface on the surface, it seems that the people of Makkah had succeeded.

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

They, they, in reality had not succeeded, because they returned with the Wrath of Allah. So, on the surface, it seems like two people are doing the same action. Alright two people have come for the same cause or from the surface it seems like one has lost and the other has succeeded. But the reality is not how things appear, because enamel are Malou Binney yet actions are judged by intentions. And yes, there was a battle over here, but one group had come seeking the pleasure of Allah and another group had come earning the Wrath of Allah. So these two groups can never be the same. Those who seek the approval of Allah. Yes, sometimes they suffer along the way. And yes, it

00:35:57--> 00:36:49

may seem that they're not victorious, but learn to look past the surface. In our heads we learn that that a slave of Allah seeks the approval of Allah. Any slave of Allah is trying so hard to do different things to please Allah soprano Tada. And he continues to do that. until Allah subhanaw taala says, Did you believe that in deeds, that indeed such and such servant of mine is seeking my approval, you should know that my mercy is on him, Allah. We're in Iraq Mati rla, Allahu Akbar, we should be seeking the approval of Allah in whatever that we're doing. And at the same time, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from his wrath to save us from doing things that bring

00:36:49--> 00:37:35

about his anger and disapproval. We should be making this Dora Allah oamaru the video Welcome in Sahaja Oh Allah I seek refuge in your approval against your anger will be more emphatic I'm in a robotic and I seek protection with the safety that you give from your punishment. What are all the becoming law or sleeth in our in our Lake enter come out with me darlin of sick and we should also pray Allah in the arrow the becoming zewail in aromatic what the hell will you alphabetic we're fauja it Nick medical Jimmy ERISA healthy video Allah protect me from the suddenness of your punishment, and all those things that bring about your disapproval, that that bring about your

00:37:35--> 00:38:21

wrath. You need your Allah protect me from all such behaviors and actions. It is said home the Roger Turner in the law. There are varying degrees in the sight of Allah. Allah who bill slid on be my arm alone and Allah is seeing of whatever that they do. And he these two groups of people have completely different ranks near Allah. They have very different outcomes in the hereafter. So don't think that they're the same. And don't think that the people of Macau have succeeded over here. Look at the Mandela who I mean, certainly did Allah confer great favor upon the believers, one of the biggest blessings of Allah upon the believers is what is Bharath a fee him Rasulullah Minh and

00:38:21--> 00:39:13

foresee him when he sent among them a messenger from themselves, a messenger from within them. And he a human being someone whom they recognized, whose past they knew whose language they understood, who was from their nation, their tribe, who was sincere to them, was one of them compassionate and kind towards them. This is a huge blessing. And what did this messenger do yet to lay him at? That he was reciting to them his verses were use a key him and purifying them while you are Lima when will Kitab al hikmah. and teaching them the book and the Wisdom Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a blessing. How? Because of what he did, and what is it that he did, three

00:39:13--> 00:39:59

things are mentioned over here tilava does care and thirdly, to our meaning, he recited to the people, the verses of Allah, and he recited meaning the word so that the people heard the ayat and as they heard the verses of Allah, He their spirits were uplifted. They came to know of what they were ignorant of before their Eman increased, they understood meanings and you know of, of what Allah subhanaw taala revealed to them. What what Allah subhanaw taala sent to them, and it is only when they came to know what Allah subhanaw taala has sent, were they able to act upon it and follow those commands. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu adios

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

And then he recited the verses of Allah to the people secondly use a key him he did does kiya does kirs to purify, to cleanse and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, cleanse the people, both physically and spiritually, physically, yes, the Prophet sallallahu Ordos, it taught us basic hygiene even Allahu Akbar, it he, one of the things the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi Salaam taught us is that when we wake up from sleep, we should wash our hands before putting our hands, you know, in a in a container of water or something, because we don't know where the hand went. We don't know what's on the hand. So it's any this basic, basic other, the Prophet sallallahu or is it I'm taught

00:40:45--> 00:41:33

us even physical hygiene, right? And then this gear purification, this is not just physical but also spiritual. So the Prophet sallallahu artesan, purified his oma from Sheikh and he he clarified that this is schimke. This is associating partners with Allah, so leave it right, he purified us he purified the oma how, by by by teaching them what sins are so that they would leave those sins and what bad luck is what bad behavior is so that they would leave it right we have heard the story of you know, the young men who came to the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent him asking him permission that please allow me to commit Zina and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He didn't say how long

00:41:33--> 00:42:23

how long this? You know, how could you even say that the Prophet salallahu Urdu said a maid that young men understand how Zina is something evil, it is something dirty, it is not something worth doing. And so the man willingly left it, he willingly did not do it. in it. This is Ischia when someone is spiritually cleanse, so they have they no longer have any attraction for for sin. They willingly Leave it, and then the Prophet sallallahu early cinema also did Darlene and he, he taught the Quran he taught the book and he taught the wisdom. And what is hikma hikma literally is to put something where it belongs in the manner that is appropriate. And this is the Sunnah of the Prophet

00:42:23--> 00:43:13

sallallahu earlier Sunnah, because through his actions through his habits, he taught us what the best way of doing things is. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught the Quran and he taught the wisdom. We're in can Omen, acaba Lula few banally mubin. And although they had been before it manifest error, meaning before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cave, people had no idea what the right path is, how to you know how to seek or, or what to do in order to please Allah subhanaw taala they had no idea and this idea, it shows us the importance of learning the Quran and Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam didn't just do to our he didn't just recite the verses of Allah.

00:43:13--> 00:43:56

Notice he also did thoroughly he also taught the verses. So it is not enough for us to just learn how to recite the Quran, we must also learn the meaning of the Quran, we must also learn the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because some people, their focus is just learn how to recite the Quran, you know, do your amin, you know, recite the whole Quran, throw a huge party and then move on. Right and then forget about the Quran for the rest of your life. This is not what the Prophet salallahu Urdu said I'm taught, he recited the verses and he also taught the book. And he didn't just teach the book he also taught the wisdom. So it is necessary for us that we learn

00:43:56--> 00:44:38

how to recite the Quran. And then we also learn the meanings of the Quran. And then we also learn the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu. Earning Sunnah the Hadees the sila, and along with that, any all of this learning should not just be for the sake of learning, it should be for the purpose of becoming better, this gear that that is the goal. We learn in a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim. And when we generally think of this Hadees we think about you know, seek knowledge of math and English and science etc. Yes, okay, that's fine. But here what is meant by knowledge is religious knowledge, sacred

00:44:38--> 00:45:00

knowledge, the knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah. And we learn that my unity lab will be higher on you fucka hufa, Dean, whoever it is that Allah subhanaw taala wants good for then Allah subhanaw taala gives them the understanding of the religion and the understanding of the religion comes through what through knowledge, so

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

If a person learns the meaning of the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they develop understanding in the religion, this is Allah us favor upon them. And truly, this is better than you know the things of this world. When a person knows learns the Quran and Sunnah, then what happens? They receive many benefits in this life and in the next First of all, they get to live a real fulfilling life. In the Quran we learn in suitable and file i a 24. Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, are you Halina? amanu? Is the G Bula. He will never soul or you will believe respond to Allah and to the messenger. Meaning when Allah subhanaw taala commands you have something then do it and

00:45:51--> 00:46:25

how can we do it if we don't even know what the verses of the Quran mean? When the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commands you have something then do it. How can we do it if we don't even know what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and taught? So respond to Allah and the messenger Eva da come Lima, you hear come when he calls you to that which brings you life. So obeying Allah obeying the messenger, what is this this is a source of, of life, real life. Secondly, when a person

00:46:26--> 00:47:15

learns the Quran and Sunnah, then this is something that protects them from going astray. In sort of haha i 123 Allah says for ma Tiana community houda then when guidance comes to you from me, feminie tabara, who Daya whoever follows my guidance by now your little while is, then such a person will neither go was true, nor will they be wretched. So falaya lilu, they will not they will not go astray. But how can we follow the guidance of Allah if we don't even know it? And then thirdly, the knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah. This is a source of healing, healing for body and for the soul in circle israa at a loss Pandora says when Luna zillo mineral core Anima who has she felt Anwar

00:47:15--> 00:47:34

mottolino meaning and we have revealed of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy for those who believe. So, this is a gift from Allah, the knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah. Let's not take it for granted. Let's Let's acquire it and benefit ourselves from it.

00:47:35--> 00:48:26

Then Allah, tada says, oh, Allah ma sorbet como se baton, a sub to myth lay her call to Anna Heather, why is it that when a single disaster struck you on the day of or hurt, although you had struck the enemy, with one twice as great, you said, from where is this, you see at the Battle of 17 Muslims were martyred. But before that invaded, they had caused a loss of double that number to the enemy, how the Muslims killed 70 of the enemy 70 which they came and took 70 of them as captives. So double that number. So when the Muslims suffered, what they suffered at their initial response was another that How come? We're supposed to be Muslims. We're in the way of Allah. we're striving in

00:48:26--> 00:49:09

the way of Allah. Allah has promised us his help. And we got the help of Allah and brother, we were victorious had brother. And here again we are with the Messenger of Allah. How can we didn't win? How can we suffered what we suffered? And isn't that what we generally think? When we have been praying for something, and it doesn't happen? When we have you know, been taking a treatment and the disease doesn't go away? We applied for a job. We applied for a program, we prayed as hard as ever. And then we received that rejection letter. And a lot of times our response is the same. How come? How come Allah didn't help me? Why am I suffering? So the answer is given over here, Paul, who am in

00:49:09--> 00:49:59

our in the unfussy calm, say it is from yourselves in the Lucha luckily Shay Anthony. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent, Allah is able to help you. Allah subhanaw taala can give you exactly what you want, he can give you exactly what you're wishing for. But the reason why you didn't get what you wanted is you yourself at the Muslims received the help of Allah, then what happened? they disobeyed the messenger sallallahu already you send them, they left the posts that were assigned that they were assigned to stay in. So he they were shown the consequences of their mistakes. And just like that, if we don't see the consequences of our shortcomings, our negligence

00:50:00--> 00:50:47

We would never introspect, we would never realize our errors. And if you know, and if we don't realize our errors if we don't recognize our weaknesses, how would we improve? So in the long run aqualisa, in Kadena, it's not that Allah is not able to help you, he's not able to give you what you want, no, he is able to, but he has shown you the consequences of your own errors, so that you learn well, my asaba comio, multiple jamara. And if a B in Illa. And what struck you on the day the two armies met, was by permission of Allah. So ultimately, whatever happened on that day, happened by the permission of Allah. And this is an important rule that we must remember that nothing happens

00:50:47--> 00:51:38

without the event of Allah. And that means that Nothing escapes Allah. Nothing is beyond his power. Everything is within, you know, his control. We learned in sort of the the harpoon ir 11 ma Saba, mostly, but in a lab in Illa, no disaster strikes except by the permission of Allah. And the question then is that why would Allah let something like that happen for multiple reasons, and some of them are listed over here. First, well, yarlung meaning that he might make evident the true believers, Allah subhanaw taala already knows the believers, but such situations reveal the status of your faith. The believers, the true believers really became known at the Battle of Earth, because

00:51:38--> 00:52:28

so many of them in 70 of them strove so hard, until their last breath, they defended the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, risking their lives, and at this time, the hypocrites also revealed their true colors. So it is said when the yarlung and levina naffaa coup, and that he might make evident those who are hypocrites, what cleaner la junta Alo Katya lofi sobre la he awaited 404 it was said to them come fight in the way of Allah or at least defend. You see, up until this point, it was trendy to be Muslim, it was the right thing to do, because the victory at Burger showed that Muslims were here to stay. So a lot of people after the Battle of budget superficially embraced

00:52:28--> 00:53:18

Islam, and they use their outer fake identity, to enjoy the benefits of being Muslims, but deep within, they actually harbored enmity for the Muslims and Islam. So that had to be exposed, so that the Muslims would not be deceived by such people, and the Battle of truly expose that how we learn that our beloved obey, initially he came along to participate in Ohio. But then he returned to Medina with 300 people, he did not fight the enemy, and he did not even defend the Muslims. So he was told, we learned that Abdullah Ibn hazm and he's he tried to stop or the law even obey that don't go stay, you know, party roofie Sabina lay away the pharaoh if you don't want to actively

00:53:18--> 00:54:03

participate in the battle, that at least defend how that at least stay here. Because then when you will stay here your numbers will be a source of defense for the Muslims. And if you know any backups are needed, then you will be there. So at least you would be defending the Muslims, but are the webinar they did not listen. And he offered an excuse. So what excuse was that Carlo lo narla more peterlin letter burner calm. They said if we had known there will be fighting we would have followed you. This was a big lie. It was very obvious that there was going to be a battle. And lunarlon of peterlin also means that if we knew how to fight, Kenny, this was a big lie. The people of Medina

00:54:03--> 00:54:52

had been waging war against one another. They were engaged in Civil War basically for decades. They knew how to fight. So this was a lie. He said, Oh, we don't know how to fight. And this this could also have been sent out of mockery, that if we knew this to be a war, then yes, we would come but this is not war. This is foolishness. Low narrowly mock Italian letter Varna con. It is at home, Lil kufri Yama, even Accra boomin homeless a man. They were nearer to disbelief that day, then to face on that day. They weren't closer to a man. No, they were actually closer to disbelief. And he the shoulders that faith he man is not something stagnant. Any increases in decreases on that day. The

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

faith of such people was closer to this belief than it was to actual real belief.

00:55:00--> 00:55:43

Your colonna bf ye him malaise, if you call ob him, saying what their mouth what was not in their hearts will love our lamb will be my Dr. Moon and Allah is most knowing of what they conceal. So you see the hypocrisy of the hypocrites was revealed at the Battle of earth when they abandoned the Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a Muslim is the brother of a Muslim, he does not oppressed him, he does not desert him, and he does not look down on him and he does not hand him over to his oppressor. Any Muslim does not abandon another Muslim and Muslim is there for other Muslims. But But these people, these fake Muslims, what happened at this time they abandon the

00:55:43--> 00:56:29

Muslims and not just before the battle afterwards Also, look at the kind of things that they said. And levena cannoli honey him were Corrado Lau Aruna, makuti Lu, those who set about their brothers while sitting at home. If they had obeyed us they would not have been killed. Look at their commentary. First, they didn't come to help. And then later on, they criticize those who sacrificed their lives, that there were so foolish to have gone with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you know if they had come along with us their their lives would have been spared. This These are words of a coward. It is a confederate or an unfussy Kemal melter in quantum saw the team say

00:56:29--> 00:57:15

them prevent death from yourselves if you should be truthful. And you think that if you just stay at home you're never going to die. That's not true. Everyone is going to die or the love and obey eventually died in Medina. Right? Well, further or an unphysical melt? Are you able to avert death from yourselves? No, you aren't. There is no escape from death. So don't you know say such things? One other stubborn alladhina Kuti, roofie Sabina nahi on water and never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. But here on endora behaviours a code Hoon, rather they are alive with their Lord receiving provision. So they don't need your pity. They don't need such

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

commentary from you. You don't need to you know cry over them and say words of you know regret for them that had they've been with you, they would have been saved. No, you know what, they are in a much better place. They are given risk by Allah subhanaw taala and, and don't don't say that they are dead. Don't say that they're finished. They're actually living a different kind of life but are here on they are alive in the lobby him yours a cone. They're given provision by their Lord. there they're closer to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when your brothers were killed at the Battle of Allah subhanaw taala put their souls inside green birds, which go down to

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

the rivers of Paradise, eat its fruit, and Nestle in the chandelier is of gold in the shade of the throne, Allahu Akbar. Then when they experience the sweetness of their food, drink and rest, they asked, Who will tell our brothers about us that we are alive in paradise provided with provision in order that they might not be disinterested in striving in the way of Allah. Allah azza wa jal said, I shall tell them about you. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed these verses that those who have been killed in the way of Allah, they're in a much better place. You don't need to pity them. You don't need to feel sorry for them. And we also learn about Jeb it'll Dylan Warren, who he said that when

00:58:43--> 00:59:24

his father was killed on the day of or her later the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said I met him, meaning the Prophet sallallahu already sent him a jab, it'll de la Mourinho. And he asked him that or drabbit Why do I see you upset? Why do you look so brokenhearted? So jabil de la Mourinho replied that all messenger of Allah, my father has been martyred, and he has left behind dependence and that's so he said, shall I not give you the good news of that with which Allah met your father? So jabil della horn who said yes, or messenger of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah never spoke to anyone except from behind a screen, but he spoke to your father directly. And

00:59:24--> 01:00:00

Allah said, Oh, my slave, ask something from me and I shall give it to you. So he said, Oh, Lord, bring me back to life, so that I may be killed in your cause a second time. So Allah subhanaw taala said, I have already decreed that they will not return to life any This is a law. So he said, Oh, my lord then conveyed this news to those who might have left behind that let them know that I'm in a good place. So Allah subhanaw taala reveal these verses. Fatih hanaa Bhima Tao whom Allah whom in foggy rejoicing in what Allah

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

bestowed upon them of his bounty. Why is that Sharon a binladin alum el hecho be him there are so happy and then they receive good tidings about those after them who have not yet joined them. Allah how often are lay him Allah homier has known that there will be no fear concerning them. nor will they grieve. Yesterday Sharon have been here muddiman Allah He will phuddle they receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty, or anila holla you'll do agile meaning and of the fact that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost two times it is mentioned here, yes, them Sharona, they're happy, they rejoice, they receive good news. First, for those whom they have left

01:00:45--> 01:01:33

behind, that they are doing good that they're on the right track. And second, they they rejoice over the blessings they received from Allah. So those who have gone are gone. And the question is, what are we doing? What path Are we on? You see, around the time of ohan soon after that 70 companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who were well versed in the Quran, or sent to certain tribes at their request, so that they will teach them the Quran. But those people actually betrayed the Muslims, what did they do this around these companions and killed them. And there were two incidents of this nature back to back. So this was like tragedy upon tragedy, and how these we learn that it

01:01:33--> 01:02:31

was revealed at this time that unbelievable kawana and cadoola cleaner a burner for the unknown what Alina I know, that all that please can convey to our people, that we have met our Lord and He is pleased with us. And he has made us pleased as well. So he, when someone dies, absolutely, we feel sad. Absolutely. We feel sad at that separation. But if someone has died in the way of Allah, they have had a good end, they died doing something good. And even if their life was short, a good end is actually a very good sign. We should be hopeful, because of their good end, we should pray to Allah subhanaw taala that he or Allah accept their good deeds from them and your Allah give them much

01:02:31--> 01:03:23

better than what they have left behind. So instead of feeling sorry for them, Worry about yourself that what path Are we on? What is it that we are doing? Because yes, their turn came before us. Our turn is also coming soon. And what have we prepared for our departure from this life and readiness the Jabu dilla he was suli member the man of Sabah, who will call those believers who responded to Allah and the messenger after injury had struck them. Lin Lavina are sent home in home with taco aduna Arlene, for those who did good among them and feared Allah is a great reward. We learned to nourish that when the mushrikeen went back towards mcha after they said to one another that you and

01:03:23--> 01:04:14

I are killed Muhammad Sallallahu already said I'm nor did you take any captives you What did you do? Let's go back. So when the Prophet sallallahu rzm heard this news that the mushrikeen are coming back, he he instructed the Muslims to get together and and and pursue the enemy any go after them. So when they reached him, Rob will acid and the machine found out that the Muslims are coming. They said you know what we'll meet next year. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned to Medina. Now this was the day after. This was right after the Muslims had endured a very difficult day. They were wounded. They were tired. They were exhausted emotionally and physically. Still, when

01:04:14--> 01:04:59

they were told to go and pursue the enemy. They went. And levina Karla homeowner Sue in anassa, koderma Ola calm for showhome those to whom some people said and these were the hypocrites that indeed the people have gathered against you so fear them, that the machines are keen, they have gathered, they're coming back to fight you fear them. But in that state instead of fearing the enemy, what happened to them frazetta whom he manna but it merely increased them in faith? We'll call who has been Allah who unnormal were killed, and they said sufficient for us is Allah and he is the best Disposer of affairs. You see Shay plan what does he do shell con tries to create panic.

01:05:01--> 01:05:48

Because of that panic when we become fearful, we're not able to think clearly. When we're not able to think clearly, then our actions are also all over the place where we're not organized. And as a result, we don't get the desired results. When panic is being created, when people are, you know, spreading this atmosphere of fear that fall show home fear, you know, fear a believer should increase in his email and facade the home imana How do you increase in your Eman by knowing that you're not alone? By knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is there? What God who has been Allah who and Ehrman wiki by saying haspin Allah who an airman with Katie, this is the best thing to say in a time

01:05:48--> 01:06:36

of fear or or at a time when people are trying to threaten us and are trying to frighten us. This statement is very, very powerful. What does it mean has when Allah means sufficient for us as Allah, that Allah alone is enough for us? that yes, we don't have much in our hands. Yes, we have a huge challenge before us. But Allah alone is sufficient for us to protect us even if all odds are against us. Allah is all powerful. So he is enough for us. Nirmal workiva. He is the best Disposer of affairs. This is a way of praising Allah, that Allah is the best one to rely upon. He is excellent as the one who is trusted, because Allah knows everything. He is our luckily Shay and Cody is alcovy

01:06:36--> 01:07:26

He is our Z's. So why should I fear Hassan Allah who, when near Milwaukee, so when things get hard, we should we should increase saying Hassan Allah, Ibrahim Arneson, I'm said this when he was being thrown in the fire by his people, even in response to the gel, this is what we should say. The Prophet sallallahu rzm described the gel once and he said that the gel will say I am your God. So what should you say in response, luster of burner, lacking narrowband Allah? Allah Ito Cana, wha la Annapurna narrow the villa human shadrick. You see la dee da Cunha that, oh, you the gel are not our Lord Our Lord is Allah and on him we trust. So we should have to work call on Allah. And what is the

work called our call is to believe in Allah to depend on Allah with full confidence while expecting the best from Allah and doing whatever that is within your means. This is the worker. So the companions express their tawakkol on Allah by saying has been Allah when airman wikid because Joaquin is the one that you put your toe up call in. Right you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala commands us to to put our trust in Him. This is the way of the believers will sir Listen, I'm set to his people that in control airman to belay far later Hito Kullu enquanto muslimeen that if you truly believe in Allah, then put your trust in Allah. If you are Muslims, instead of fearing the

01:08:10--> 01:08:49

potential harm, we should put our trust in Allah. And remember that Allah is enough for the one who relies on him. The Prophet sallallahu earning satnam he put his trust in Allah when that person came to him when the Prophet sallallahu origina was sleeping, and that person you know, he took the sword of the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent him and said who's gonna save you from me? And the Prophet sallallahu earliest even said Allah mozzarella is Salaam, one at our own was behind him and the water was before him. And the bunny is slightly ill said in Ella mudra cone, we have been overtaken we're finished now. Will Sardis and I'm set color in the Mario Robbie sadeem no way with me is my

Because, you see at Ohio initially the enemy was retreating right and then they came back and then the Muslims had to retreat they had to take shelter in the in the crevices within mount or back

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

Then the following day, when the enemy was coming back to attack the Muslims who pursued them, it was the Muslims who returned, it was the enemy. So who won now, it was the Muslims. So nirma was what victory so hard was not actually a defeat. We just talk about the day of the Battle of a hug. But it's not just the day, we should also think about what happened the next day that Allah subhanaw taala converted their defeat into victory. So be near Metro Manila will follow and more favor. And this can refer to the reward that they got, because the 70 people who went along with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The day after or what can he imagine? They were exhausted, but still

01:10:46--> 01:11:34

they went. So imagine the reward that they got, because you see a greater test means a greater reward. And this fuddled, some have said that a caravan passed by and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You know, he, he engaged in trade with them, and they, the Muslims obtained huge profits. So the Muslims returned now with with more blessings, let me assume so the third benefit, that they were safe, that they suffered no harm Allah subhanaw taala protected them. And fourthly, the fourth benefit, they pursued the approval of Allah, they did something to please Allah in the medallic comerciais petanu. You heard before earlier who that is only shaitan, who frightens you of his

01:11:34--> 01:12:23

supporters, find out the harmful homophony in control movement in so fear them not, but fear me if you are indeed believers. So this shows us that the people who are trying to frighten the Muslims, they were actually acting on behalf of shaitan because it is shaitan, who frightens his supporters, and the shows is that a person who becomes afraid, because of the fear that Shetland casts into his heart, then such a person becomes a friend to shape on. So instead of fearing people, and succumbing to that fear, what should we do, we should increase our fear of Allah because the fear of Allah minimizes the fear of people. And if we give up out of the fear of people, we start disobeying the

01:12:23--> 01:13:02

law out of the fear of people that we are befriending shaylen when every other Billa Well, I presume colavita you Sadie aroona, Phil Cofer, and do not be grieved or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by those who hasten into disbelief. You see, I mentioned to you earlier about how the people, you know, different people ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for, you know, Muslims, who were well versed in their knowledge of the Quran, so that they could come and teach them. But then what did they do? They betrayed those Muslims, they killed them. And then after day, you know, the Muslims were, were, you know, being treated like this by by so many enemies, all of a sudden,

01:13:03--> 01:13:20

everyone was trying to harm the Muslims. So the people who are hastening into disbelief, any rushing in covered in opposition to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam rushing to harm the Muslims, their activities should not grieve you.

01:13:21--> 01:14:06

You should not grieve because of them. Why? Because in the home layer, rural lush shade, indeed they will never harm Allah at all. Why are they trying to harm you because of the religion of Allah? That is what they're opposing. They're trying to fight Allah, you think they're going to, they're going to manage to harm Allah never. You read Allahu Allah you're on a level one fil a hero. Allah intends that he should give them no share in the Hereafter, Willa whom are either one or leave and for them as a great punishment, a stuff that Allah it is people will only increase in their disbelief by such behaviors and what will happen they will have nothing in the hereafter no reward at all. In

01:14:06--> 01:14:51

alladhina Stata will call for a bill Imani Laney Allura Lucha chez wala whom are either born early indeed those who purchase disbelief in exchange for faith. Never will they harm Allah at all. And for them as a painful punishment, so do not be saddened by their apparent success. They're not being successful, they're only going further in their misguidance and harm while I serve under ladina cafaro under my name Lila hydralie unfussy him for the Muslims should not grieve over this. And on the other hand, and let not those a disbelief ever think that because we extend their time of enjoyment, it is better for them that okay, they they gain something today, or they apparently

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

succeeded at something today. They think it's good for them. No, no, in reality, it is not good for them in the manam Lila homely as Dudu Esma

01:15:00--> 01:15:08

Hello whom are double maheen we only extended for them so that they may increase in sin, and for them is a humiliating punishment

01:15:09--> 01:15:55

mercan Allah hooghly other meaning our allameh unto my lay, Allah would not leave the believers in that state you are in meaning presently hepta yummies Allah hobby Femina until he separates the evil from the good. So why is it that the Muslims are experiencing hardship upon hardship test upon test any every other year, there's something that puts believers to a huge test. If you look at the Sierra, if you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him you see this, it's as if there is no break. So why had the yummies hobby Femina a year? until Allah separates the evil from the good? What can Allah Julio polara come either live? Nor would Allah reveal to you the unseen

01:15:55--> 01:16:35

alone already knows the reality of each person, but unless peloton is not going to tell you about the unseen matters that oh, this person's a believer, this person's a hypocrite this person's weak. You know, that this person has weak faith this person has strong faith. No, this is lame. Well, I can the lie edge the bema rules to the Hema inertia, it is the experiences that will show you that will reveal your reality to you. And instead Allah chooses of his messengers whom He wills and it is to those messengers that Allah discloses some of the unseen firmino Billa he will also he so believe in Allah and His messengers were in took me know what the taco fella can adjourn earlier. And if you

01:16:35--> 01:17:28

believe in fear Him, then for you is a great reward. So if you believe and fear Allah, you will have a great reward and this is what we need to do. So, we see over here the trials expose a person's reality, without trials without without tests, the reality of a person cannot be known. So we should not resent the trials we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for safety and well being but remember that if Allah subhanaw taala has tested a people a person than it is for a reason and that is to make us better still let us learn from these tests and and improve ourselves in every way possible. inshallah, we will conclude over here, tomorrow is going to be the last class of sort of earlier
