Al-Baqarah 215-220 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 215-218
I was a bit of a genius when they hover over here.
That's the number 29 so little bacara i a 215 to 220.
Yes, aluna Canada, Yun fiocco when they ask you for profits or love, where to send them what they should spend? Yes aluna?
Yes. aluna is from the newsletter seen him that learn from the words to earn. And so l is to question to ask to inquire about something. Yes, aluna. They ask, they ask who can you meaning you are Prophet sallallahu Sallam meaning the companions ask the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
we see that the Sahaba the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were the best of people. And they were chosen to be with the profitable video center. And they asked the Prophet sort of certain questions. Because of the, you can say the desire, or the greed that they had for knowledge for beneficial knowledge. And why did they ask questions? Why did they want to know, so that they could implement the knowledge that they had learned?
So the word Yes, aluna, aka, we will see this many times now occurring instead of
the word Yes. aluna appears about 13 times in the Quran. And it shows that the Sahaba they did not ask too many questions, because it's only 13 times. They didn't ask too many questions. They only asked relevant and practical questions,
questions that really concerned them whose answers they needed, in order to implement the commands of Allah, or in order to do that, which was more beloved to Allah, in order to obey Allah, in the way that he would like them to,
even or both people that are in who he said, that I have not seen a group better than that of the companions of the Prophet set of autism.
Those who were extremely interested in their religion, and who were extremely loving with the Prophet,
and who despite having a close relationship with him, question very little.
They used to observe, listen carefully seek knowledge, and only when there was something difficult, would they ask? Only when there was something difficult, then they would ask.
So we see that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were the best of people. And they asked him questions, questions that concern them questions that were important questions that were beneficial. And these questions that are mentioned in the Quran. Why are they mentioned in the Quran? Because it shows that they were frequently asked by the Sahaba, they were frequently asked by the companions. And so Allah has mentioned those questions along with their answers in the Quran for not just them to benefit, but also all of the people after them to benefit. Yes, alone, aka they ask you, what is it that they asked you, mother unicorn? What is it that they should spend? Earlier we
read, spend in a way of Allah and do not put yourselves for destruction? The motor team, or those who spend, those people who receive guidance from the Quran are those who spend.
So the question is, what should we spend? Okay, we should spend but what should we spend? So that was your question.
The word mother is understood in several ways.
It is said that mother is a combination of man, and the
man gives the meaning of what it is for is different. And then it gives the meaning of that
just doesn't the word velyka that leka had there. So that means that and Matt is for question. So Mather, what is that thing? What thing? Is it that we should spend? In what ways should we spend and how should we spend?
What are the channels of South Africa? Where can we give Southern? How can we give sadaqa? What should we give us?
So basically they're asking about the quantity about the kind about where they should spend. So yes, aluna mother unifocal
and remember that this special
is specifically referring to voluntary charity. It is referring to,
not the cat. Because the cat has been mentioned specifically elsewhere in the Quran in detail Allah, Allah himself has mentioned about where and what has to be given in circuit.
So over here, what has been mentioned is knuffel to the voluntary charity.
There are many opinions as to the reason behind the revelation of this ayah according to narration of Ebner vessel dinar, and who we learned that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he said in led nowlin I have a dinner of one dinner. So you can say $1 for example, a lower than what the difference is between the value of $1 and dinner. So he said, I have one dinner for color so the profits are a lot it's an upset and feel quarrel NFC, spend it on yourself. You have some money, you have one day not only on dollar on you can spend it on yourself, for color in me in elite denarii. He said, I have to dinner. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and you can either spend it on
your wife for color. So he said in many falletta He said, I have three to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and feel clear on how to spend it on your servant. So the man said, in the layover, I have four. So the profits that have been upset and feel hurt, are they already they spend it on your parents? It's the man said in the home, sir. I have five. So he was given the answer and feel clear, either corroborated that spend it on your close relatives. But he said in Melissa, I have six. So he was told and feel her piece of meat in there. Spend it in the way of Allah.
So when he asked so many questions, okay, I have more wealth, can I spend Okay, where else can I spend? Where else can I spend? So when these questions were coming, when the companions were asking frequently as to what they should spend, how they should spend on who they should spend when they should spend, it was a frequently asked question. So Allah gave the answer.
What was the answer? Cool, say meaning Oh, profit, sort of all the sudden you say to them, that Ma, and factum, whatever that you spend, Min, hiring of any good, whatever you spend of any good it is for who it is for the parents, and so on and so forth.
Over a year, Matt, and foxon, whatever that you spend, what does it mean by whatever that you spend? Whatever that you spend refers to the amount however, small or large, however, Colleen or Kathy's, whether it's $1, or a few cents, or a few $1,000, whatever that you spend whatever amount it is,
and man factum is also understood as whatever form it is off, whether it is money, whether it is enough, or it is some food, or it is some clouds, whatever, that you spend min hiding of God.
And the word height, as you know, it means good, but it is also used for wealth. So whatever that you spend of wealth,
so can learn from them in hiding. As we know that height means good, but it's also used for wealth. So whenever you spend off wealth, Who is it for? Who should you spend it on? federal well, being suspended on the parents meaning for unfeasible and unwieldy they spend it on the two parents. And remember that while eating does not just refer to Mother and Father, but by extension, it also applies to grandparents. It also applies to grandparents, both paternal and maternal, from the Father side, and the mother's side. So it is for the parents.
And the question is that the parents are mentioned first over here. The spouse is not mentioned, the children are not mentioned. Parents are mentioned. Why? Because it is the responsibility of a person to spend on his spouse to spend on his wife, especially for a man because he's the one. He's the maintainer. And it is his responsibility to spend on his children.
A person cannot say, should I spend on my children or not? Should I buy them groceries or not? No. It's forced upon him.
It's mandatory upon him.
As for the parents, if they're needy, then obviously it is mandatory upon him. But if they're not needy, then it's not mandatory upon him.
It's not their responsibility, meaning fall upon the person to spend on his parents if you're not living with him. For example, your father has a job he's working. He lives separately with your mother, and you are married, you live with your spouse. You work you make your own money.
But it's not fun upon you to support your parents to financially support your parents, obviously, if they are in need, then it definitely is mandatory upon the person to support them. But if they're independent, that a person is not required to, he is encouraged to spend, which is exactly what is mentioned over here in this ayah. But because the servant is in your house, he's serving you all day and night, he's working for you think of an extra dollar extra food, final give it to him, he sees you enjoying that money enjoying those clothes, give him something.
But over here, there is an encouragement to spend on the parents, regardless of whether they're needy or not. Regardless of whether they are needy or not spend on them, spend it on the parents, because they have the most right upon you.
They have done the most for you. Therefore, they have the most right upon you, one Caribbean, and the close relatives meaning often spent on the close relatives. The word Caribbean is a plural of Accra, and Accra as universal newsletters off the top means closeness. corrib is one who is close. And up. carob is one who is closest one who is very close to one who is closest to you.
So a Caribbean refers to the closest relatives, meaning the immediate family who does after being referred to the closest relatives, the immediate family of a person.
So for example, a Caribbean includes a person's parents, but the parents are mentioned previously. So a Caribbean includes siblings, it includes the children of one sibling, so nephews and nieces, then a Caribbean also includes the parents, siblings, paternal and maternal aunts and uncles. And then a Caribbean also includes their children. So cousins, then a Caribbean also includes one's grandchildren. It also includes a person's grandchildren.
The question is, a could have been even the closest family, even the most immediate family with your siblings, and their spouses and their children and your parents and their siblings and their spouses and their children, the circle becomes large, it becomes big. So how will you decide who to give to if you only have a little bit,
sometimes you cannot afford to give to everybody, especially if the family is huge. So how should you decide?
Basically, the word crop closest, what does that tell us? The closer a person is to you in relationship, then he has more, right? So out of all these relatives that I mentioned to you, who is closest to you, siblings, and then their children, then after them who's closest aunts and uncles, because they're your parents, siblings, and then after them, their children? And then who else is closest to you? your grandchildren?
So Well, a Caribbean and the closest relatives also spend up on them? And how can a person spend on them? How can a person's spend on one's parents and on one's close relatives? How that first of all, by financially helping them if they need that financial help if they need the financial assistance. And then sometimes even if they don't need the financial assistance, a kind gesture such as a gift, and a gift, graduation gift, or your sister has a baby or your brother had a baby or, you know, one of the relatives had some children. So what can you do give gifts at that time.
And sometimes, it's not just about giving gifts. Sometimes it's also about cooking some food, preparing some food, and sending that food,
especially to parents. Just the thought of my daughter made this for me, even if they don't like it. Even if it's not up to her standard, just the fact that you cooked is going to make her happy. And just the fact that you cook some food and sent it to her will make her very happy. So giving gifts, sending food, whether they need or they don't need just to strengthen the ties of relationship also spend on while the attachment and the orphans that after the parents and relatives. orphans have the most right on your wealth
after the parents and relatives who has the most right orphans. And remember that an orphan child as you know, we have done this word many times it is used for a child who has not yet reached the age of puberty and his father has passed away. That is when orphans suspending him as well. Now the orphan has inherited a lot of wealth, no matter how much it is a lot or a little from history.
Isn't it? Sometimes it could be a six year old child and he has inherited an entire house. So he has a whole lot of money, perhaps more than you. But over here, we're being told spend on the orphans spend on the orphans, whether they are needy or not. Why? Because when you spend on an orphan, you're not just fulfilling his material need. You're not just fulfilling his physical need. But you're fulfilling his spiritual, his emotional need as well. When you buy things for your children. Is it only the needs that you pay for? Is it only the needs that you purchase?
Is it only just bread and butter and eggs and jam that you buy in grocery? What else do you buy? Candy, chocolates, what else? His favorite fruit, if he likes Any similarity, we buy clothes, we buy toys, we buy little things that our children like little little things.
So an orphan, okay, find somebody who's looking after him. They're giving him his needs. He's getting his three meals, he's getting his clothes. But sometimes he also needs toys. Sometimes, he also needs someone to give him a gift. He also needs to be sure that he is loved by someone, someone cares for him. someone loves him, someone shows him kind gestures. So also spend on the orphans.
Who else one more second, and those who are needy florala miski that spend on the parents, on their relatives, on the orphans, whether they are rich or poor, whether there are needy or not. But you have to make sure that you also spend on the needy, why, because they are in need, and also spend on who Lebanese severe, and the traveler
also spend on the travelers. Now we see that there are different types of travelers, there are different types of travelers, and a person can spend on travelers, depending on what type of travelers they are.
Sometimes, there's a person who's traveling, and he is in need. For example, he's very hungry. Sometimes there is a person who is out of his house for an entire month, he has been traveling from one city to the other because of some work. And finally he comes to your city, he's been eating out the entire month. So he is in need, either he needs money or he needs a nice bed to sleep on, or he needs some homemade food.
So when a traveler is in need, then it is necessary upon us to spend on him.
When a traveler is a need, it is necessary upon the people of the town to spend on him, to help him to assist him.
Another type of traveler is the one who is not in need. He doesn't need. Sometimes people come and they're travelers. But they're in much more luxury than you.
Sometimes they have their own rental car, they have their own accommodation. They know about restaurants that you never knew existed in your city. So sometimes they're much more prepared than you. In this case, it is not necessary for you to spend upon them. But if you do so, it's your own kind gesture. And it's good for you.
So sometimes the person is visiting and you say, well, they have much more money than I do. They're enjoying so much. How can I help them? How can I support them, you could give them a nice gift, their visitors, their guests.
Then the third type of traveler is the one who is unknown to you, meaning you don't know whether he needs or he doesn't need. so in this situation, also, you do whatever you find best. But obviously over here the encouragement is to spend on the traveler and spending on the traveler includes giving monetary help. And it also includes giving them food to eat and ice bed to sleep on, guiding them as to where they should go. assisting them, there will be different things.
What are the following in hiding and whatever that you do have good. What isn't the height over here? height over here refers to either spending or any other good deed. Whatever good you do, whatever good deed you do, or whatever that you spend to please Allah for in the law here I leave that Indeed Allah is Knowing got it. What does it mean by the centralized knowing of it, that he will reward you he will recompense you accordingly.
I notice over here one that the far new main hiring, whatever that you do,
Whether it is a small charity, whether it is just a small amount that you give, or it is a huge amount that you give to someone, whether it is an open charity, or a hidden charity, no matter what it is, anything you do, who knows of it? Allah knows of it.
Therefore, do not belittle any hate.
Sometimes we see that guests come over to our house or off the traveler. And we say, Oh, I don't really have much to serve right now. Because we didn't expect them maybe. But the thing is that even if you offer a glass of water, with some fruit, whatever it is, whatever that you have, don't belittle that. Why do you think that you have to serve three course meal or some very nice appetizers and followed by several courses? Why? Whatever that you have spent that whatever that you can afford, give them
we learn from the Hadith, that leather Khurana melon Murphy Shea do not look down upon any good deed at all. Do not look down upon any good.
Also, we learn from another Hadith that it can never wallow, we should picomolar to save yourself from the hellfire. Even with half a day.
Sometimes we're hungry. When we check our bags, we check our purses, if we have something to eat. And there could be another person sitting with us. And we see Oh, we only have one date or one candy, or one chocolate bar or something like that. And what do we think I don't have to right now. It looks bad. I won't eat right now eat afterwards when she's gone.
But what could you do? What could you do? break it into to give her some, eat some yourself. Save yourself from the fire, even if it is by giving half a day, half a day, it's something so small, something so tiny, something so insignificant, because you never know how much pleasure that half a day could bring to someone
how much satisfaction that half a day could bring to someone.
So don't deliver any good deed and save yourself from the fire even with half of it. And over here we also learned that one not the final min height in any good deed that you do. Good deeds are not just limited to spending well.
Many times when we read these verses, we think I don't have much money, I don't work. I used to work, I don't work anymore. I get only a small allowance, I can barely afford to support myself. How can I spend on other people, I can't afford to do that.
But over here we see that good deeds are not just limited to spending in the way of Allah. Or they're not just limited to spending money.
Over here the word hate has been used, anywhere that you do, anything that you give, whether it is your money, or it is your help, or it is your time, anything that you do or it is your advice, anything that you can give to another, anything at all, Allah knows of it.
Therefore, do the good deed for the sake of a law. Not for the sake of other people.
As we learned from the unfamiliarity with Canada, rotten, Hiram, Yahoo, whoever does even an atom's weight of good atoms Wait, have you ever seen an atom with your own eyes? with your naked eye? No. And atoms, weight of good deeds, something so hidden, something so insignificant, something so tiny, even that good deed is of value to Allah subhanaw taala.
So we see that spending is a source of great reward. It is a source of great benefit. And we have been encouraged a lot in the Quran to spend to spend in the way of Allah to spend on those who are around us. And remember that sometimes we spend and we give sadaqa Okay, that is reward. That is adequate, obviously. But sometimes we spend on our family members, and we don't consider that to be sadaqa. We consider that to be a burden sometimes.
But what do we learn from the Hadith?
The prophets are allowed to set them set aside that we will pass that whatever you spend for Allah sake, you will get rewarded for it. Even for the morsel of food, which you put in your wife's month.
Anything that you spend in the way of Allah, you will get rewarded for it. Even if it's the morsel of food, not the meal, not the plate. What is it? The morsel of food that you put in your wife's mouth, even for that, you will get reward
Why, because you are spending on someone else.
All those hours you spent, when you go to the grocery store, and you have to buy so much food, you have to pay so much. So even if it's buying groceries, if you change your knee, if you make your knee enterpise, Allah, then that is also a source of reward,
we see that every action can becomes a means of reward for us, depending on how we look at it.
For men, it is buying groceries. For women, it is cooking food.
We take cooking as such a big chore, as such a big burden. And we think it's such a waste of time.
We think it's such a waste of time that you have to cook every day, and to cook every other day, every weekend. What is this, and we have to cook not just for ourselves, but for children and our spouse, and we have to cook that food which they like that food that which they appreciate. But the thing is that even if you make this work of yours, for the sake of Allah, this action becomes soda. This action becomes charity. Can you really afford to give $100 a day is circa $1,000 a day for soda. You can't, maybe you can, but most people cannot. But when you're cooking food, you do that with this near that I am preparing this food, which other people are going to eat and benefit from
this is my spending. I'm giving my time I'm putting in effort. This is my Sadako to my husband, this is my sidecar to my children. And believe me, these actions will not remain chores anymore, you will actually enjoy doing them. Really, you will enjoy them. Enjoy everything that you do. You can enjoy it depending on how you look at it. So sometimes with our negativity with our complaining, we prepare all that food and we complain so much that other people don't want to eat. Whether we like to do it or not, we have to cook Why? Because a hungry man isn't angry man.
So you have to do it anyway. might as well do it with happiness and get some reward for it.
So sometimes we take these things as a chore and we take them as such a big burden. And especially I've seen that once we start enjoying the Quran, we just like to read the Quran, listen to the Quran, and we don't like to cook anymore. Yes, we shouldn't spend so much time and that other important things become neglected. But if you have to do it, then just do it with the correct knee and that act will become regarded that act will become an act of sadhaka.
And I really want to make this clear to you because many times when people they come into the deen they study the Quran, then they lose interest completely in their families and their spouses and their cooking in there cleaning and they're maintaining the house. And they think that everything else is unimportant. It's not unimportant. It should be given importance, but obviously, within limits.
And if you make sure that with your studying, hold on, you're also you know, cooking proper food and looking after your husband, especially through the food, you'll be able to do anything. Trust me, you'll be able to do anything
that fits into recitation.
always tell yourself
whatever good deed I'm doing, Allah knows of it. Sometimes you put in so much effort and other people don't acknowledge at all. They don't acknowledge at all. Who knows? Allah knows. And he acknowledges every person should see what ability they have, what is it that they can do, what quality they have, what work they can do, and find a way of helping other people through that. Some people are very good at cooking. Other people are not matter how hard they try. Some people can cook within an hour, other people take three hours. So depending on what skill Allah has given you use that skill to benefit others around
quotevalet concreto PETA has been enjoined upon you fighting has been enjoined upon you please
is a little better spot than butter means to kill. And kita is to try to kill one another. It is to fight, to go in war to battle. So quotevalet PETA fighting against the enemies amongst the disbelievers has been made mandatory upon you cultiva. bidding you have no choice with regards to this.
We learned that in Makkah, the Muslims were not allowed to fight. They were not allowed to fight the enemy, or take revenge despite all the persecution that they were suffering. And every time that they asked for permission to fight, what were they told, be patient, go for a vehicle, keep your hands back, retain your hands. And upon the hijra to Medina, upon the migration to Medina, then what happened? The Islamic State was established, and the Muslims were commanded to fight. Why? For their defense, and before they were told to be patient, and afterwards, when they became comfortable, they were told to fight before they wanted to fight. And now, they did not want to fight. So cookie bar
and eco PETA fighting has been made mandatory upon you wahoo cola calm while it is disliked to you, you don't like it, you don't like to fight. Corwin is for new federal staff are all happy. And the word Quran is understood in two ways. It is at the core means hardship. What does it mean, hardship, to find something difficult to do.
So what will occur will occur, meaning you find it hard to do, you find it very difficult to go to battle, you don't find it easy at all. Because obviously, the person has to leave the comfort of his house, he has to say goodbye to his family, maybe he's not going to see them ever again. And then he has to go. Stay out in the open in the camps live a very tough and rough and difficult life for some time. And battle itself is difficult. So a worker will look on you find it hard. It is also said that the word corpsman is actually Cartoon Cartoon with the factor on the graph.
And curve is to find something hateful, to dislike something, to disapprove of something, to feel aversion to something.
And it is basically to be unwilling to do something Why? Because of the difficulty that is in it, to be unwilling to do something because of the difficulty of doing it.
So we're gonna have a look on why it is called hola Khan, what's the second meaning that while it is hateful to you, meaning you don't like it.
And remember that you refer to the companions of the Prophet sort of all the sudden. And it doesn't mean that they hated just the fact of the command that they were given. But rather what it means is that they disliked people, not because of the obligation, but because of the difficulty. So they didn't dislike the actual command. Rather, it was the act of fighting that they disliked because it's difficult to do so.
But we see that today. Some people even dislike the actual command or fighting the object. And the question as to why the Muslims have been allowed to fight. Isn't it? So? Even the Muslims question. But if you look at it, any people, any nation, any country, any civilization, the people of any religion, any ideology, they have to fight in order to defend themselves, isn't it so they have to before the Muslims were not allowed to fight at all, even if they had to defend themselves. But then they were given the permission. And they were given the command to fight. Why? When the situation demands that you fight, so if the situation demands that you fight, then you have to fight. So
quotevalet come up with a workaround.
So before we see that the Muslims, they wanted to fight, but then when the command was given, they did not want to fight.
And this is something that we can relate with our daily lives, that sometimes we really want something. We can't wait for it to happen. We're literally counting down
and then eventually, when we have to do it, but like, I don't want to do it.
For example, you'd have to travel somewhere. You have to go back home and you know
You're going to leave within a week, within a month, you're literally counting down the days, when am I going to go? When am I going to go and then eventually when you have to leave, the same people are crying. Same people don't want to go, they become depressed, they become sad. So, this is natural
that until a person has to do something, he wants to do it and the moment it becomes mandatory upon you, he's left with no choice, then he finds it difficult to do so. Why because the difficulty that is involved,
but what does Allah say?
What I said and crochet and it is possible, that you dislike something.
Assa though rasa, as we have read earlier, it is used to give hope, it is used to give hope of or expectation of something that should happen. And what I say is used in four ways basically, first of all, the word si is used for Roger, what does it mean hope, that it is hoped, that such and such will happen, we hope that such will happen.
Secondly, the word asset is used for what does it mean to arouse fear in some way.
Thirdly, the word asset is used for the worker to give the possibility or to express the expectation of something to occur.
And remember that the worker is different from Raja Raja is that you hope you wish you long for it to happen. And the Walker is that you expect, you know that it's going to happen and you expect it. And fourthly, I say is also used for thoroughly for reason, for cause
over here, I say gives meaning of the worker, it gives a meaning of expectation of possibility. Whereas under crochet, and it is possible that you dislike something,
it is quite possible that the crocheting you dislike something, why? Because of its difficulty. But in reality, when you hire a locum, it is actually good for you.
It's possible that you dislike something, but in reality, it is good for you, it is beneficial for you.
For example, taking medication, taking the needle, it's painful, it's difficult, sometimes the medication is very bitter. Or sometimes you have taken in the morning in the afternoon with every meal every four hours every two hours. And you're like, What on earth is this? Forget it, I'm not going to have it, it's too difficult. So it's possible that you dislike something because of its difficulty, because of the hardship that you have to go through. But in reality, it is actually good for you. If you don't take that medication, if you don't take that needle, what's going to happen, you are going to suffer.
So on the apparent things appear difficult, but in reality, they are good for us.
Now, the question is that the context is off, because it is a fighting. So how is Python? Good? Why did you dislike it? Because if it's a difficulty that you have to leave your house have to go away You have to fight. You have to spend your money, you have to spend your time, your business could suffer loss back home,
but it's actually good for you. How is it good for you? How is without good for you? If they got killed, they're Shaheed and if they win, they're victorious.
So without his height, as well, as we are in sort of the Toba if 52 full health or of bassoon ebina in there, then his name do await for us except one of the two best things what are the two best things either victory or martyrdom? So it's possible that you dislike something, but actually it is good for you. And this is a general principle in life. This is a general principle in life. It can be applied to medication, it can be applied to learning the lesson it can be applied to reading something, it can be applied to going somewhere, talking to someone, it can be applied to different things. So on the apparent things may seem very difficult, impossible, but in reality, they're good
And on the opposite on the country, where I sat and to hibou Shay, and it's possible that you love something. You love to do something, you love to eat something. You have to go somewhere. You love a particular person, but actually we're who is Shambala.
But in reality, it is evil for you. What is sharp anything that a person dislikes, anything that could bring harm to a person anything
could bring harm to a person. And shall is the opposite of height. Height is good, it is beneficial, it brings benefit to a person. And sharp is evil, it brings harm to a person. So it is possible that you love something, because of its convenience, because of the enjoyment, because of the pleasure that you find in it. But in reality, it is not good for you.
Sometimes we just love to sleep, we wish we could see we're 12 hours, 15 hours for 10 hours. But if we sleep so much, okay, fine, we are enjoying a lot. But when you wake up, now do you feel sick, you have a headache, you're lethargic the rest of the day, you're late for school, you miss class. What else?
For example, if a person has a sensitivity to a particular food, but he says I love this food, I cannot do without it. Okay, fine, he'll have it. And then what's going to happen, he's going to become sick, he's going to have some allergic reaction or something.
Many times our parents tell us to do some things. Or our elders tell us to do something. And we don't like to do it. But actually, they're good for us. Like, for example, a child who likes doing homework. No one. All of you must have seen that as children, your parents would have told you do your homework, do your homework, do your homework, if they didn't tell you and you didn't do it, what would happen, you probably wouldn't have received your high school diploma.
So it's possible to dislike something because of its difficulty. But it is actually good for you. And on the other hand, it's possible that you love something. But actually it is bad for you. And many times, we realize this afterwards, that we love something, we really want something to happen, and it doesn't happen. And we get very sad at that time. And afterwards, we realize the benefit, we see the benefit.
For example, somebody was mentioning about how when they got married, they really wanted to go to their husband because he was in a different country because of the visa issue she wasn't able to. And in that time, her father passed away when she was still with him. And imagine if she had gone already.
So at that time, what do we think, Oh my god, this is not fair. I'm married already. I should be with my husband, and how come this is not happening in my favor. But if she had gone maybe she wouldn't have been able to serve her father. In that same way. So many times we see the benefit afterwards are certain to hibou. Cheyenne, well, who was shot
possible that you love something, but actually, it is bad for you. What law Who ya know what I'm Talat Aryan, Allah knows and you do not know. What does Allah know that which is truly good for you, and that which is bad for you? And you do not know what is actually good for you? And what is bad for you. Why? Because you have limited knowledge. And Allah has complete knowledge.
Well, luckily Allah will will unto me.
And because Allah knows and you do not know therefore, who should you listen to? Allah? Whose commands should you accept? Allah?
Remember, we learned earlier that the calamata have a lot of two types. Calumet county and Karima Sheree Calumet County, are the decrees of Allah, the commands of Allah about us. For example, what a person needs to get what a person has to lose, what a person needs to eat what a person is to suffer from. All of this is what Calumet county
and then there's the cutting machinery, the commands that are lost, Allah has given which are the commands of the Sharia, for example, praying for like giving Zakat giving sadaqa going for Hajj, all of this is Karima Sherry, so many times we find the Calumet county and county machery very difficult and we're not willing to accept them.
Many times we find them difficult, but actually they are in our favor.
Because everything that Allah commands us with everything that Allah decrees for us is in our favor.
And you can always look at some positive aspect of every negative thing that happens isn't any negative thing that happens you can always find some positive aspects. This I should also be hopeful always be hopeful that maybe this was good for me.
I'm sure there was something good for me in this
so we learned many lessons from this ayah
First of all, we learned that fighting quotevalet como Pika, Pika are fighting going to battle is mandatory upon the Muslims, obviously when the need arises, but it is mandatory
And fighting with Al is fourth key fire, meaning if it is performed by some people, then it is enough every single person does not have to do it.
However, in certain situations it does become further in, you know the difference between 45 and 49
for buying is an action that is obligatory on every individual, for example, Salah you cannot say Oh, my mother prays Salah, so I don't have to. Similarly, fasting, the cat. All of these are what felt right. Obviously, we know that if a person is unable to fast because some sickness and we've studied all those details.
fortify on the other hand is an action which every single individual does not have to perform. But even if some people from the Muslim community if they perform then it is enough. For example, if a person dies, then what has to be preserved. So that region as it does every single Muslim of that town have to preserve that region as a no, but some people have to some people must.
Similarly, going to battle is not for the rain. But it is for key fire, every single individual does not have to go. But rather, some people have to go.
But in some situations, it does become
it becomes mandatory upon every individual. In which situation. For example, when a person is physically and financially capable of participating in battle.
For example, when the Muslims were in Mecca, many of them weren't physically able to, because many of them were slaves, and the slave cannot go without the permission of his master. Many of them were not able to do so we're not financially capable of participating in battle.
So therefore, in Makkah, they weren't allowed to fight. But in Medina, when they were free, when they were physically able to, when they were financially able to, then it became mandatory upon them.
Also, another condition is that when there is one leader, and that leader tells the people to come for the battle, that leader tells the people to come for the battle, then also, it becomes mandatory on the people to respond to that leader,
also has been said, another condition is that when the enemy attacks, and is advancing toward the Muslims, when the enemy attacks and is advancing toward the Muslims, then this moment, a person will not say, Oh, I'm not in the army. It's not my job. I'm just gonna go home. It's not my job.
No, at that point, when the enemy is clearly attacking, then it becomes mandatory upon you as an individual, to defend yourself.
Just as for example, if there is a natural disaster, okay, if there's a natural disaster, and you see someone who's about to drown, who's about to fall off, who's about to be killed? What are you going to do, you're going to say, it's not my job, it's the job of the relief workers. Is that what you're going to say? No, if the situation is such that you need to go out and help, then you have to. So similarly, in a situation when the enemy attacks and is advancing towards the Muslims, it becomes mandatory upon every Muslim to participate. So first of all, we see that it is mandatory upon the Muslims to fight where there is a need to fight.
Then we also learn from this ayah, that if a person finds it difficult to implement a command of a law, if a person finds a particular Command of Allah difficult, or he doesn't like it, he finds it difficult to do it, or he doesn't like it, then just because he doesn't like it, just because he finds it difficult. The obligation is not nullified, he is still obligated to observe that command.
Because over here, what's the ayah katiba A coca cola? It has been made mandatory upon you, but it is disliked to you. It's possible that you dislike something it's actually good for you. It's possible that you like something, it's bad for you. So over here, it hasn't been said, Okay. You don't like it, don't do it. You have the choice? No. So just because a person does not like a particular command does not agree with it. Or he doesn't find the logic in it. It doesn't mean that he's not obligated to do it.
So for example, some people say, Well, I don't understand why do we have to pray five times a day. I think praying five times a day is very difficult. So I'm not going to pray. I'm only going to pray to my son. I'm not going to do it. No. Just because you don't like it. Just because it's difficult.
It doesn't mean that you're not obligated to do so.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this ayah is that a lot is a possessor of all knowledge, allies, the possessor of all knowledge. And since he has all knowledge, we should trust Him, we should trust his decisions, we should trust his commands,
that whatever that he has commanded me with whatever that he has decreed, is, in fact, better for me.
It is in my favor, even if I don't see any immediate benefit. Even if I don't see any logical reasoning, still, there is some benefit in it.
So whether we comprehend a command or not, whether we understand the logic or not, whether we see the apparent benefit or not, still, we should accept and observe the commands of Allah. Why? Because Allah knows, and we do not know.
What else do we learn from this ayah
the statement of Allah, it's possible that you like something, it's bad for you, it's possible that you don't like something, it's good for you, we should remember this. And we should apply this in our lives. And if we remember this statement, that no matter what situation we're in, it becomes easy for us to accept it and to deal with it. If we're angry about something, we're frustrated about something, besides yourself, maybe it's good for me, there must be somewhere in it. And just that positive thinking is going to make the situation easy for you.
But we should do what we're told to do, even if we don't like it.
Sometimes a doctor tells us to follow a very strict diet, or Islam tells us to follow a strict diet, or some strict rules. They're good for us, they are in our favor.
So over here, without has been made obligatory, and any commanded a loss of panel data obligates and people it becomes an act of worship.
One more thing that I want you to notice over here is that it hasn't been said that if you don't like this, then you must like it.
It hasn't been said that if you like it, then you must not like it.
It's possible that you have been told to do something, and you really don't like it, you don't like to do it.
And on the other hand, you don't want to do something, or you want to do something, but you're stopped from doing it. So we're not being told over here to change the state of our heart. Because feelings are not in our control. And sometimes we have to fight against ourselves. We have to suppress our feelings. We have to control ourselves in order to be successful. We learned from our Hadees that a woman will cover you higher in a law human movement and life with he called in Hi.
The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. While there is good in both.
If there's Alana and Phalke be greedy over that which benefits you
so if you learn of something that is beneficial for you, and obviously that is the command of Allah. How should we take it? How should we think of it? We should be greedy for his his from his have greed for it?
What's there in biller and seek Allah's help? seek assistance because many times we learn of something that is good for us, and we don't want to do it. Or we want to do that which is not good for us. Whose help do we need Allah's help? So when you find it difficult to pray Salah when you find it difficult to give the guide when you find it difficult to fast when you find it difficult to speak the truth, then what should you do seek Allah's help was there in Billa seek Allah's assistance,
while authorities and don't lend yourself to things devoid of benefit for innocent aka shaken, and if something befalls you, meaning if something harmful befalls you find out Apolo, and Nick fell together,
then don't say if I only would have done such and such, well I can call other law woman chef Allah. Rather, you should say Allah ordained this. And he does whatever he wills. So if anything happens against our will, we shouldn't say, if only I had done that. If only I had not done that. Because it's possible that what you see right now to be very harmful for you, it's actually good for you. And it's possible that what you see as beneficial for you is actually bad for you. So don't say if I had not done this, if I had done that, don't say if but rather what should you say are the law when I share a file? This is what Allah has ordained and he does whatever he wants.
Last decision, I should accept it. Why should you not say no, because for in the note of the formula shape line, For verily the phrase if I would have mixed wait for the work of shape on, the straight line comes in.
So we learned from this, that we should accept the decisions of Allah and we should be pleased with them.
Whether they are the positions of Allah concerning our lives, or they are the commands in the deen that Allah has given
because really, we don't know what is good for us and what is bad for us.
Also, we know from the Quran that lie you can live for long enough Sani Lavasa, Allah does not overburden a soul more than what it can bear more than what it can tolerate. So if apparently you find something very difficult, it might seem impossible. But Allah knows that you can do it. Allah knows that you can deal with it. Many times you really want something, you work hard to get it, you pray for it, you make so much more. And at the end, you don't get it. But if you've prayed istikhara, and you've been praying to Allah all along, then you should have that contentment in the heart that this was good for me. He created us, he gave us everything we have. He loves us, he would
only command us with that which is beneficial for us. We can connect this very beautifully with Robin attina. cydonia has Santa will accurate he has Santa. We don't know what's good for us what's bad for us. So we should always pray to Allah for that which is hasin because he knows what is truly good for us.
Allies. And Hakeem is an early whatever he commands, there's always wisdom behind it.
So Monica, I was just thinking somebody might not like sickness, but Allah God needs a means to provide for the doctors. And you might not like car breakdowns, but less bit of that. And it's a means to provide mechanics, and you can go on and on and on.
So Allah supposedly uses different means different ways to give risk to people to give different things to people. Sometimes one suffers, and the other benefits from his suffering.
We see that the Muslims, as soon as they were commanded to fight, that's when they didn't want to fight.
Many times that happens with us as well, we want to do something, or we can do it. But just because somebody is telling us to do it, we say I'm not going to do it. Or we take it as a big burden. But if we look at it this way, look at the command itself. Look at the instruction itself. Is it in my favorite? Is it beneficial for me? Even if I don't see the apparent benefit? Because a lifestyle? My mother is telling me, perhaps
listen to the recitation.
So next time something happens, don't say Why me? Why this, why that will love We are know, for anthem Latin, Allah knows. And you do not know. Really, we don't know. And later on, sometimes after years, we see the benefit, which was invisible to us before. But if we accept the Katanga, we accept the decree of Allah, then we can be condemned.
It's not like, I just want to share how you were saying you should never say like, if only I had done this properly, or fully that, from personal experience, I was supposed to start University this Monday. But then I had filled out my application wrong, even though I'd read it over and over and over and made sure everything was fine. And then that's why I was getting so many delays in my university. And I was like, if only I had just read it properly. My dad was like, you know, yeah, you made a mistake. And then I just thought about it. And then that's how I ended up here. I was like, you know, maybe that there was something better for me here than there was at university. So
just from my personal experience, like you do see the result, I saw it earlier than most people do. But, you know, eventually you will.
And if you got depressed, oh my god, it's such a waste of a year. And many times what people do is that they don't accept it, and they don't move on. They don't move on. You moved on. Let me do something else. Let me do something more beneficial. And hamdulillah you got the opportunity to study the Quran.
And sometimes taking our parents advice. It seems so difficult, like they don't know. But sometimes, we realized much later how valuable that advice was.
And how lucky you've been just because you listen to them.
And I'm sure many of you have many stories about this, that you didn't see the immediate benefit at that time and later on, you saw the benefit.
So, at the end of the day, you see that we have to trust the decision of a look. We have to trust the commands of Allah, we have to know that they are beneficial for us.
Yes, aluna garnish, how long? They ask you about the sacred months. What about the sacred month peterlin fee about fighting in it. The sacred months, which are a little harder, the ledger, Roger, and mohalla, the four months that are sacred, in them fighting is not permissible. Fighting is not allowed. The previous ayah talks about fighting the quotevalet communicator.
Now, as for the style, there's a reason a revelation.
We learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam assembled a group of people, a group of men to go to NASA, which is near earthlife under the command of Abu Zubaydah in Java,
why, in order to see the activities and whereabouts of the wiki, because we see that the Muslims were in Medina, the machine were in Makkah, and all the time something or the other was happening. So every now and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would send a group of people to go and see as to what was going on, so that the Muslims were prepared and ready in case something was going to happen.
So when obliterative no de la when he was about to march out, he started crying. Why, for the thought of missing Allah's Messenger, he didn't want to leave Medina, he didn't want to be away from the Prophet sallallahu Salah Consequently, the messenger sallallahu Sallam relieved or beta from the command and appointed of the life in Gerrish instead. And he gave them some written instructions and commanded him not to read the instructions until he reached a particular area. And he also said to Abdullah, do not compel any of your men to continue marching with you after that. This incident was in the second, the second year of hijra, in the month of June, Matthew Giamatti, Sunny, and Africa,
one of the law, reach the destination, and he read the instructions. He said, enter the law, he were in a urology room. And then he said, I hear and obey Allah and His messenger. He then told his companions the story and read the instructions to them. And two men went back while the restroom in
soon after, they came in contact with the McCain caravan,
and ended up in a small fight in which one of the machine got killed. Who was that Michigan, if not had Romney. And this happened on the first day of logic. And the Muslims, they misunderstood that day to be the last day of Jamaica.
They thought it was the last day of Jamaica.
Whereas Actually, it was the first day of magic.
When this happened, that one of the machine was killed in a job and what is Russia? What kind of a month is a sacred month in which fighting is not permissible?
When this happened, the machine said to the Muslims that you have committed murder in the sacred month.
Because remember that the machine they observe the sanctity of the sacred month, and the Muslims also did.
So when this happened, they made a big deal. And when the Muslims when they returned to Medina, they also profits out of all the sudden about what had happened about their case, if what they had done was right, and if what they had done was wrong and what they had to do. So over here, yes, aluna cognition in harmonic photography, they ask you about the sacred month fighting there in who asks you Buddha's they refer to their first to either this habit, or it refers to the Michigan
It was a habit asked, they asked why, in order to know what they had to do, to expiate or to know the reality, the worth of their deed, if it was really acceptable or not if it was something wrong. So they wanted to know about what they had done. And if the machines are the ones who were asking, Why do they ask, why did they ask in objection, called, say meaning or profits or losses, what I'm saying to the people that return on fee could be fighting in the sacred months is great. It is could be it could be this from calf Bella, meaning it is a serious matter. It is a great sin. It is really something that is objectionable. So in other words, Islam maintains the sanctity of these months,
even in Islam
fighting in the sacred month is not permissible. And even a basketball there are who said payday loan fee could be fighting there in his COVID it means it is not permissible. It is how long it is not permissible. It is how long
but Allah says was not done, Obaidullah, but stopping from the way of Allah. Son is from the route that we saw that dad and son is to stop someone from doing something. And it is also to keep away from doing something oneself.
So the word fat can be used in two ways. Either is to stop oneself to not go on oneself. Or it is to stop other people who are doing something so sudden and severe in the stopping from the way of Allah What does it mean by this? That not believing and then stopping other people from believing that is worse? worker from behavior and disbelief in him in who in
this believing in Allah and CO from be he? He has also been understood as the way of Allah, the religion of Allah.
So disbelief in the religion of Allah, one must see that how long and the sacred mustard? What is the sacred mustard? the Kaaba and its surrounding area. Now what does that mean by one must do that how long? You see I must GB ends with a casa.
And if you see work of throne, co front ends with a llama
and you see sudden answer be lillahi sabi Laila he What does that have to be Li Allah He What does that have? a castle?
Remember this rule? that whenever there is a while, like you see, well sudden answer vitola will go from be one must be the heroine What does this one mean? It's like commerce. It's like commerce. And whenever there's a well it shows that the following statement is connected with the previous statement and how do you recognize what is connected with what you recognize that with the halaqa of the last letter.
So we see that and must GD ends with a kassala whereas work of fraud and with a dumb, so messy is not going to agree with COVID on what is it connected with? On Sebelius.
So what it means by one must see that how long is was sudden I need my student
and stopping people from the sacred message. Okay, you understand? So one must have done heroin means will sudden, massive heroin and stopping people from the sacred mustard. So let's look at it from the beginning was Southern Sevilla first of all. Secondly, we'll go from Biggie and thirdly was sudden uninvested heroin and stopping people from the sacred mustard. Fourthly, what is Roger Lee and expelling its residents across from Colorado? What does it mean to go out to make someone leave? So expanding who led its residents? What is meant by the residents of mustelid Harlan, the residents of Mecca. The people who used to live in Makkah, who used to live in Mecca, and was not allowed to
live there anymore. The prophets are allowed to sell them and the Muslims. So expelling people from their homes, a caboodle all of these sins, they are greater are in the law, in the sight of Allah accomando than what? greater than what? greater than fighting in the sacred month.
We see the word above. And previously the word COVID was mentioned. All the time on fee cubbies say that fighting in a sacred month is a great thing. However, stopping people from the way of
disbelieving and stopping people from the sacred muster and expelling people from Makkah, that is much worse it is it is greater.
So we see that all of these acts are mentioned here. They're much more serious than the violation of the sacred month. And all of these things, all of these actions were committed by who they were committed by the people of Mecca, the machinima aka the Muslims, by mistake, kill the man in the sacred month, and there was such a huge uproar.
And on the other hand, what were the machine doing? They were violating the sanctity of the way of Allah. They're violating the sanctity of the sacred Masjid. They're violating the sanctity of the people who lived in Makkah. Isn't that something great? It's
Much worse, Allah says.
So we see over here that several crimes of the people of Mecca mentioned, the first crime is preventing people from the wave of law. What does it mean by that? preventing people from the way of Allah has been understood as preventing people from Islam, either accepting Islam or following Islam, observing Islam, not giving people their religious freedom, not letting them practice their religion. This is stopping people, Southern unbeaten. And also it has been said that Sabina la we have a look over here first to hedge it refers to pilgrimage and not just harsh, but also
because the machine What did they do, they did not allow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims to come and perform.
And the kurush would not let the Muslims worship publicly. They did not give any religious freedom to them.
The second crime that has been mentioned is vaca from B and is believing in him this believing in who in a loss of data or disbelieving in the religion of Allah, that is a greater sin that is a greater crime, especially for the one who recognizes the truth
of the people of the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the people of Mecca, the Arabs who knew Arabic When they heard the Quran, they knew it was true. It was quite obvious to them. very obvious. But still they wouldn't believe still they wouldn't accept. So that's a major crime. The third crime that is mentioned is of stopping people from the sacred Masjid. Now, we know that the Muslims were not allowed to worship publicly or worship in the sacred Masjid. And sometimes even they weren't allowed to worship openly. For example, Abu Bakar of the learn who when he would pray, and he would recite the Quran out loud, the women, the slaves, the children, they would gather up and they would
just listen to him. And they would be so affected by the Quran. And the people that were shaking their leaders, they wouldn't allow him to recite the Quran, Allah
or we see disrespecting the sanctity of the sacred mustard. We know of so many narrations in which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam or the companions you would be praying in the Quran? And what would the machine do? They would come and throw Cambodian customs is that respect to the sacred mosque? It's not respect at all. So disrespecting the sacred mosque is much worse. What is hard you Aleem and who? expelling people from their land from their homes, it is much worse. So you think that a mistake that the Muslims made, that's a big deal. Look at your own actions. And this is something that we must also remember that many times we're very quick at picking the faults of others. Many
times we're quick at picking the faults of others. We don't spare even the slightest of mistakes. And we forget the huge crimes that we ourselves are committed. And this was the way of the machine. What does Allah say? Well fit Nadeau Akbar winner Caitlyn and persecution is much worse it is greater than killing. What does it mean by fitna we read this earlier as well. religious persecution and it also means shift. It is much worse than killing people. Especially when killing is just by mistake.
Well I as a Luna you caught the local and they will not cease to fight you who will not cease to fight you. The more shaky the word is aluna is from the root letters they well learn the word and what does it mean to disappear to decline and when the word Salah is preceded by left like over here leg is at Luna it means do not stop doing something meaning to continue to do something to never stop doing something
so lay is I don't know meaning they will always you got the Luna code they will fight you had to do Command D nukem until they will turn you back from your religion your will do come is from raw than that. But what does that mean? To return to avert some to put something back so they will continue to fight you until they will turn you back from what andina confirm your religion in his tutorial if they were capable of doing so. Is to Thoreau is from for well.
And STTR is to have the ability to do something. So they will do anything to make you leave your religion, even if it means expelling you from your house, even if it means stopping you from practicing your religion by force. They will do anything
Anything to make you leave your religion in its authority if they were able, meaning they would have done it, but a lot does not give them that though fear. So that's why they're not able to do it. But then Allah warns us will may have done it and whoever turns back men come among you. And Dini from his religion, whoever returns back from his religion, what does it mean by this? What does it mean by this? Whoever leaves Islam and reverts to disbelief because the author This is from the same root letters rather than to turn to return. And the word more Have you heard the word motet and apostate is from the same Greek letters. So whoever turns back from his religion, family, and he dies, whoa,
okay, I feel why he's still a disbeliever. So any person from among you Muslims, if he turns back to disbelief, and he dies as a disbeliever? What about those people? What is the ISC? for their Ico? Have you thought about murder, who are such people, all of their deeds are wasted, where dunia will actually are in this dunya. And also in the alpha there, what have you thought is from the newsletters have that thought, from the word her booth, and her will, is when something becomes useless when something becomes ineffective. When an action that was done brings no benefit. It doesn't produce any positive results. And the word is actually used for an animal that eats
excessively, an animal that eats excessively, and as a result, the stomach or the value of the animal swelled. And sometimes the animal also dies because of eating excessively.
So when the animal eats otherwise, that is beneficial. It's an action that would bring some benefit to the animal. But all of that eating, because it was an excess it caused deaths.
So similarly, herbal is when an action is done, but it does not produce any positive results.
So far, like I built our motor home, all of the good deeds that they would have done, all of them are wasted where for dunya will occur in the dunya. And they occur in the dunya. No benefit in the Acura bringing absolutely no reward.
So basically, if a person dies as a disbeliever, even though he was a believer before all of his deeds are wasted, all of his deeds are nullified. But like us habit now and such people are the companions of the Fire, whom he hardly known, they will abide there in eternity.
So we learned from this ayah that if the Muslims, they make the slightest mistake, it's a big deal. There's a huge uproar. And on the other hand, other people may be doing great crimes, huge crimes, but they're not given any importance whatsoever. They're considered to be very insignificant. But any action of a believer becomes a big deal. Which is why as Muslims, we shouldn't just complain that why is it that every Muslim does is such a big deal. And if other people do it, it's not a big deal. But what should we do, we should become extra careful, extra cautious, don't give other people a chance. Because they will not blame you. They will blame your Islam, they will blame your
religion. So become extra careful, become extra cautious. And remember, when you go out with your hijab, people don't take you as a girl, they take you as a Muslim. And you come under the microscope, every action of yours is noticed.
So, over here, the Muslims are being advised that you have to remain steadfast on your religion, they will continue to oppose you, they will continue to fight you in different ways. Why? Because their goal is to turn you away from your religion and if you do turn away, who's going to suffer? You will?
On the other hand in alladhina amanu indeed those people who believe when larina hedgerow and those people who migrated What else would ya do? And they also did you had how feasibility law in the way of a ma What about those people who let eco Judah Rahmatullah? It is such people who hope for the mercy of Allah will not over food over him and allies Forgiving and Merciful. Who are these people? Those who believe First of all, secondly, what Medina hydro, hydro is from the roof veterans have Gemara from the word hydro, what does it mean? migration. The word hydro literally means duck it is to leave something. What does it mean to leave something to separate oneself from something?
It is to leave something physically with the body with the button.
That, for example, the person does a particular action. And what does he do? He stops doing it. Or he lives at a particular place, and he moves away from there.
So hijra could be to separate oneself from something how with the button with the body, or with the listen with the tongue. What does it mean by that? that a person needs to say something? And he doesn't say it anymore.
He used to say it before, okay, fine. That's history. But hijra is that you move away from those words, you move away from those statements.
And hatred can also be to move away from something by one's heart, meaning a person takes his heart away from something, he doesn't have any interest in it anyone. He doesn't have any inclination for it anymore any desire for it anymore. He used to like it. He used to enjoy it used to think of it used to love it. But now he moves away. You know how you say I've moved on? Me I've heard people say I've moved on. Yes, it's history now moved on. This is what he chose to leave something and move on, either physically through one's body, or the tongue or the heart.
And remember that Hydra is of two types. The first is that hegira which is generally digital. What does it mean by that?
That for the sake of a loss of data, a person leaves everything that is forbidden for the sake of Allah, a person leaves everything that is forbidden.
There's a hadith an alcoholic in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Elmo had zero, Manhattan, hedgerow Amana Allahu anhu that the mohajir the immigrant is the one who migrates from that which Allah has forbidden him from.
He migrates he moves away from that, which Allah has forbidden him from.
So the first hedgerow is hatred, that is, when a person leaves that which is forbidden and he moves away from it. He doesn't do it anymore. He doesn't think of it anymore. He doesn't eat it. He doesn't say it anymore, no matter what it is.
The second type of hatred is hatred. That is hos specific hedra. And what is that? That when a person leaves his homeland, his country, his house, his city, the people who live there? Everything? Why? For the sake of him? Because it's not possible for him do worship Allah subhanaw taala over there anymore.
So what does he do? He moves away from there to a place where he can freely practice his religion. So in the Medina ama know, when Medina hedgerow those people who believe in those people who migrated which is this in the context, it refers to the hos digital, meaning those believers who left their homes in Makkah, and they went to Medina,
what do they do? And they also did jihad, Georgia, who is from the route that was Jim had, and he had his from the word job. What does Jasmine destroy?
It's also said that she had this from the word jute, with Amanda ginger. And john is once ability or power, if you combine the two meanings, striving and ability, how can you put them two together, striving and ability, how do you put them together? That is when a person exerts his utmost ability, utmost power, he strives with his maximum ability, the maximum that he can, why in order to gain something,
in order to fight against something that is harmful for him.
Remember, that you have is to struggle in the way of a loss of hunger, it is to put in one's effort to please allow us
to obtain some goal and this could be different depending on the situation that a person is in.
Do you have can apply to a person struggling against himself to pray, family to pray,
because he is putting in his effort, he is striving? Why in order to gain something in order to do something. And on the other hand, Jihad also applies to fighting against some external enemy who is preventing you from doing that which you should do. So for example, the Muslims in Makkah, they weren't allowed to worship in Medina, even if they
Wanted to practice their religion what happened, then was taking the captain coming to attack them to harm them to finish them. So do you have is to fight against or to struggle against not just fight it is to struggle against anything that becomes an obstruction that obstructs you from obeying a law that obstructs you from worshiping of law.
And kitaen, which we read earlier, is a type of jihad.
PETA is a type of jihad.
So over here, which I do, and they struggle, they straw in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala whether it was by PETA, or whether it was by suffering hunger, whether it was standing up in prayer at night, whether it was in spreading the deen of Allah, what ever struggle they did, whatever struggle, feasts of either life in the way of Allah, such people are the ones who, your June or amatola, they're expecting the mercy of Allah, the word you're joining us from the room fetters la gene, well, Raja, and Rajat is to hope for that which is near, what is the ledger to hope for that which is near to offer that which is study.
So they're the ones who are looking forward to who are expecting, what the mercy of Allah, what is the mercy of Allah, reward forgiveness, and especially Jana?
Because we learned from the Heidi, that until our committee, Allah said agenda, that you are my mercy, or ham will be key Manisha. I will bestow mercy through you upon whomsoever I wish. So they're the ones who were really hoping for the mercy of Allah and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So what do we learn from this, that a person has to believe a person has to leave that which is forbidden, and a person has to strive in the way of Allah, in order to hope for the mercy of Allah.
We cannot just sit back at home and expect that everything should be nice and comfortable, that we shouldn't have to struggle ever. There should be no tests, and we should
know the path to gender is difficult. There are going to be many tests. And a person has to do jihad, a person has to put an effort in order to prove himself worthy of entry into gender.
And when a person has a man when a person does hijra, when a person does jihad, then he's truly hoping for the mercy of Allah. Now we can say, oh, we're not in that situation. So how are we supposed to hate you? But remember, Hitler is on and hos think about the things that Allah has forbidden. And if they are a part of your life, make your intention to move away from them. To leave them for whose sake for the sake of Allah. Man Yeah, sure enough, so why if the llama Latina, will LaHood are often very bad.
Let's listen to the recitation.
Kuma Dini come in is
So sometimes we have to jihad against our knifes against our desires, against our will. Other times we have to fight against in shape on other times we have to struggle against the people who are around us who are stopping us from obeying Allah, from studying the Quran from reading the Quran. All of these are struggles that a believer has to go through.
And sometimes we have to struggle against ourselves to leave that which is how long to do hijra from that
Which is how long.
And when a person does hijra, when a person does jihad, then only he can look forward to the mercy of Allah when he does something,
and Hitler and Jihad go together, that sometimes we're struggling so much to incorporate good habits in our lives. But because we have not left some bad habits, what happens? those bad habits, they pull us down. And they completely waste all of our efforts, all of our striving. So therefore, a person has to completely, entirely enter into Islam and accept all of the commands as we read earlier, but also hooroo Pfister me Kapha because if we say, Oh, no, this is something so insignificant, there's something so minor, no big deal, but then that pulls you down.
So hegira and Jihad both go together.
