Al-Imran 23-32 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 28-32
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim.
We'll begin from Isaiah 28.
Let me know nailcare Farina Odia I'm Indonesian meaning lead not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than the believers.
Later he will move meaning the believers should not take the believers should not make, they should not adopt who, Alka fearing the disbelievers. So the believers should not make this believers what earlier, they're close protecting friends. Men don't animate meaning other than the believers meaning instead of the believers.
So in other words, the believers over here are being commanded that they must not take the disbelievers as their claws, protecting friends, and they must only take the believers as their claws protecting friends.
The word only yet is the plural of Willie. And who is already when he is from the roof is well known. Yeah. And while he is used for a friend, who is very intimate, very close, you have a very close and special relationship with him. What does it mean by that? It implies two things. That first of all, whenever you need help, whenever you need support, whenever you need assistance, who do you go to? Your wedding, your clothes, protecting friend, your ally, your patron.
And the second thing that the word really implies is that when they are in need, when they need your support, when they need your assistance, you also support them, you also help them
so a Wali is someone with whom there is the relationship of moolah. What does that mean? It's fun, we lie that you have a close relationship in which both of you are friends to each other. Both of you support each other at any cost, that you are the priority of your friend, that no matter what happens, even if they have to compromise their religion, or their friends, or their family, or their money, or their anything, they will compromise they will sacrifice Why? Because they are your close friends.
So over here, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that the believers must not take the disbelievers as their claws, protecting friends, while they are leaving the believers. So what does it mean? That they must not take any help from them? nor should they give any help to them?
I noticed that now yet, yet, it is in the third person, it doesn't say like that the freedom all of you should not adopt. What is the command like? It's in third person. And whenever a command is given in third person or when something is spoken off in the third person, then it implies the seriousness of what is being discussed. Like for example, sort of the agresa What does Allah say? Our buzzer what when he frowned and he turned away when the Prophet said a lot isn't found and turned away from who? The blind companion who came to him. It hasn't been said that our best or whatever later you found and you turned away. Why? Because when the address is through third person,
that it makes the address more serious.
So now you don't even want me noodle caffeine Olia. I mean, do you mean the believers must not take disbelievers as our allies, rather than the believers? Well, maybe your father Annika and whoever does that whoever does what meaning any believer who takes the disbelievers as their earlier Felisa mean Allah He shaped so then he does not have anything from Allah. He has nothing with Allah. What does it mean by this Felisa mean Allah he officially mean Allah He has been understood in two ways. That first of all, this means mendini Allah, mean Allah means mean denilla meaning such a person then does not belong to the religion of Allah anymore.
Such a person does not belong to the deen of Allah anymore. He is going to lose his faith.
Secondly, minella he is understood as meanwell A Attila he, meaning that such a person has no friendship with Allah now. He will lose the support of Allah, He will lose the help of Allah. Because if you think about it at the time of need
At the time, when you need somebody else's support, who should you go to? Your friend or your enemy? Who should you go to your friend? And if you're going to your enemy, but does that mean that you're going to lose your principles, and you're also going to lose the support of your friends.
For example, your parents tell you don't listen to such and such person. Or, for example, the parents of a particular girl, their advisor, do not marry such and such boy. And she says, No, I don't care about what you say, I'm gonna go marry him because I love him. What did the parents say? That if you go marry him, then that's it. You don't notice anyone. Some parents do that. So, similarly, Felisa minilite Minh che meaning such a person, he has lost his religion. And secondly, he has lost the help of a law. Why is this set over here? Because the one who takes help from someone what happens? He becomes loyal to him. So similarly, if a believer takes help from the
disbelievers, what does that mean that he will become loyal to them?
in their except, this is an exception. exception to what exception to taking the disbelievers as close projecting friends, or giving them help. What is that exception? And that that document whom you safeguard from them, that taco is from taco, what does that mean to take precaution? So you take precaution against them, against to against the disbelievers, meaning from their evil. So you are taking precaution from their evil to attend a safeguarding, to pattern is also from the same root as the core well, coffee, and too often is a mustard. Remember the word mustard I told you once before, that it's the main word from which other words are derived.
So to cotton is a main word just as the core is a monster similarly to cotton is also a Muslim. So and that the main home to call meaning you take precaution against their evil, out of what out of assuring safety and security for yourself. What does it mean by this? That, for example, if there is a Muslim, who comes in contact with the disbelievers, or he is in such a need, in which he has to show some friendship to them, he has to show rely on them. And if he does not show rely, then his life is in danger, or his property, his security, his safety is in danger.
For example, the Muslims were living in Makkah, if over there, they declared war. They said, You're not our friends, we're not going to take out from you, you're not going to help us. That's it. We're at war with you. What does that mean? What would that bring on the Muslims, that intense persecution. Similarly, there is a Muslim who is living in a non Muslim land. And that non Muslim land requires a person that he must swear he must take an oath of allegiance, that he will be faithful, he will abide by the laws, he will do whatever the government tells him to do, he has to do that. Because if he does not, he will not be able to live there, isn't it so he will not be
allowed to live there. And it's not necessary that everything that the disbelievers tell you to do, while you're living with them, is something that goes against their religion. So if there's something that goes against that, then obviously you don't do it.
So in taking their help, or in giving help in taking their cooperation, or in cooperating with them, it is permissible as long as it does not compromise the Dean of the person
as long as it does not affect the Dean of a person.
So, when you have zero common law, one of several What does Allah say over here, that he warns you from himself you have zero is from the veterans head and definitely, and the need is to warn someone about something to make them cautious, who headlock them, so you have to come alone epsa who Allah warns you from himself, meaning he warns you against his punishment, if you take the disbelievers as your clothes protecting friends, what it allowed him must lead and do Allah is the destination. Now, this command that has been mentioned in this ayah needs to be understood properly, because otherwise, the person can very easily misinterpret and misunderstand this command and apply it in a
way that is incorrect. And hence bring harm upon himself about the society and upon the other Muslims as well if he does not act upon this command properly.
Now you see when it comes to dealing with the disbelievers. Everybody wonders, to what extent are we allowed to do so?
Can we smile at them? Can we work with them? Can we invite them over? If they come over? Can we serve them food in our dishes?
Now these things, people wonder a lot people think about it a lot. So this ayah tells us about what is permissible and what is not.
Now remember, if a person resists I just on the surface, he may think that Muslims are not allowed to make any friends with this believers. Apparently, this is what it seems like. Later he told me you know, catharina earlier that the believers should not take the disbelievers as their friends. Apparently, it seems as though Muslims are not allowed to make friends with the disbelievers and that Islam teaches hatred. This is what people think. But the fact is, that human interactions when it comes to dealing with people, when it comes to interacting with people, there are different levels.
Remember that there are different levels when it comes to dealing with people when it comes to interacting with people.
First of all, there is a level of musasa Meanwhile, Elif seen a lifter masa,
and was that is to wish well for everybody to benefit everyone, whether they are believers or unbelievers. So basically, Mossad is a relationship that is based upon compassion for one another, that is based upon compassion for one another.
And we know that in our religion, when it comes to doing our son, when it comes to being compassionate, being kind to others to the creation of Allah, then it's not just being kind and compassionate to the Muslims. No, it's about being kind and compassionate to all of human beings, regardless of their age, regardless of their gender, regardless of their religion, their background, their ethnicity, to the extent that even animals, they deserve compassion and care.
So why said well, wishing for others, benefiting everyone doing your signup on everyone, this is something that we must do, even to the non believers. This is something that we must show, even to the non believers without any bias, that just because he's a disbeliever, just because he's not a Muslim, you're not going to give him water, if he's thirsty. If he's in trouble, if he needs help, you're not going to help him. For example, if there's a woman who has a child with her, and she's carrying grocery bags, now you're gonna say, Well, she's a non Muslim, I'm not going to help her. I'm not gonna help her carry her bags, or you can do that no, Melissa is to do your son upon it,
everybody, regardless of their gender, their age, their background, their religion, everything.
Because as human beings, we need each other. And when we're living in a society, we need to help each other. So for example, in wasat, what is included, if there is a person who is sick, if there are people in the hospital, what does Mossad require from you, that you go visit the hospital, you go visit those people who are sick. Similarly, there are people who are old. And they're living in such places which are only for old people, for example, in old people's home, so part of my site is what going there, visiting them, taking something for them, so that they appreciate the time and the help that you're bringing them. Similarly, if you have neighbors, what is more sad require that you
say hi to them, you help them out, you greet them, you don't do anything that hurts them, that creates trouble in their life. For example, if you're mowing your lawn, and their patches only a little bit by your lawn in the front, then you can also do this why this is more sad. And this is something that we see very common at the time of the Prophet sort of autism.
For example, we see that after the Battle of birth, 70 people of Mecca 70 machine came to Medina as prisoners of war. Where were they kept by the masjid. And we know that the Muslims when they serve them food, what did they serve them?
The best food that the Muslims had. Remember, bread was something very rare in Medina. Rice was unheard of.
food that is staple for us today. It was unheard of. It was unknown, unfamiliar to them, they did not know about rice. bread was a rarity. So they gave the fine food that they had to do those people who were prisoners, those people who had come to fight with them, they gave them meat and what did they themselves survive on the simple food?
Similarly, we see that when there was a drought that struck MCE, the prophets are allowed to send him sent food supplies to Makkah. He sent it to Makkah. Why? Because they are human beings.
find their disbelievers. Yes, they're in war with you. Yes, they have hurt you a lot. They have persecuted you a lot. But at the end of the day, they are human beings. And if they're dying because of hunger, and you have food, it is your responsibility that you help them that you send it to them.
Similarly, whenever they will food, the different delegations, they would come to visit the prophets or about a sudden in Medina, of non Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he liked them were
in his Masjid.
What do we say? non Muslims don't come in our Masjid. That's what we say we don't open our doors to them. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he lodged them in the masjid. He didn't say Oh, because you're non Muslims, you're not believers, therefore, he can live out in the streets, or you can go back home, you're not welcome here. No, this is more sad if there is a person who was traveling, who has come all the way to meet you, even if he disagrees with you, even if he's your enemy. But because he's a human being he deserves some kind treatment out there that you should provide them a good residence.
Similarly, we see that at the conquest of Makkah, the prophet sort of artisan, and forgive so many people, at the time of our model, the learner, when he was a halifa, there were many non Muslims who lived in the Islamic caliphate, but are model delanco, he provided stipends to who to even non Muslims, those who are needy, they were given welfare money, the women, the children, are all. So we see that more sad, when it comes to showing compassion to other people. This is out of humanity. They're human beings, they deserve compassion, they deserve some kind of treatment, this is something that we must do. It's not just something that is recommended. No, it is something that we
must do, we must be affectionate, and guide towards other human beings, regardless of their religion, regardless of their ethnicity, and background. So for example, if somebody comes over to your house, somebody, let's say, there's a person who is working in your house has come to fix maybe the kitchen, or the washroom or the stairs or the carpet or something like that. Are you not going to give them any food? They've been working for hours? Are you not going to serve them anything?
If you don't, technically, it's fine, because you're paying them the money. But that requires that you show some compassion to them. If they've been working for a long time, give them a glass of water, give them some nice tea, offer them some fruit, offer them to sit down. But what do we say? non Muslims, not a Muslim.
And besides that, he's not from my country.
And therefore, I'm not going to even smile at this person. I'm not even going to show them any kindness, no, this is something that we must do.
So this is the first level of interacting with people. With regards to this. Remember, that if a person does look upon a person just because he's a disbeliever? If a Muslim oppresses a non Muslim unjustly, then what do we learn about that, for example, we learn from a hadith that is mentioned in it, that he who killed a vimi, who is a dhimmi, a non Muslim, who is living in a Muslim land. So he who kills the meat unjustly, will not be able to smell the fragrance of gender,
he will not be able to even smell the fragrance of gender. Just because he's a non Muslim, you think that his life is hell? And you can go kill him for no reason? No, you cannot do that.
So, for example, some people say, oh, we're in a non Muslim land. So if you're dealing with a non Muslim, you can probably do, he's a Catholic. If you're going to the mall, if you're going to a particular shop, if you're going to the grocery store, okay, steal something there got it. Okay, hit them, their coffee, not my child, child of a coffee. So we put this big label cafe, and we think that we can deal with them in any way that we want forgetting that was something that we must do.
The second level of interaction is off, would Allah mean then, and if and if the Buddha
and without art is to be good with people, when you come in contact with them, when you come in contact with them from that all you do to revolve so when you're revolving around the same society, and the same shops are on the same stores in the same neighborhood, when you come in contact with them, then without art is to be good to people. For example, you go to the mall, you go to a shop, and you're buying something. Now just because the woman she's anonymous, then you're not going to say hi to her.
If she asks you something, you can ignore her. She's a non Muslim, who cares? I can ignore her. I can treat her however I want. Or you can shout at her. No
Just because she's a non Muslim doesn't mean that you don't treat her properly. No modality is that when you're dealing with someone on a one on one basis, then what should you do? deal with them properly. Similarly, if you're walking down the street, and you see a person, you see a small child, or just because he's a caffeine or she's a caffeine, you're not going to smile, you're not going to say hi, no, you should. So, for example, we see that at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, Salah, there was a Jewish man who came to the prophet SAW that alongside his house, and the prophet SAW the Lotus and offered him some food without a one on one basis interaction. So the Prophet sallallahu
Sallam offered him some food, the Jewish man he ate as well. And then he spent the night over there as well. And he rested on the bed of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he left it dirty as well. It is said that he forgot his sword. When he left, he forgot his sword. So he came back to ask for the sword and the sword, a lot of not say anything to him.
when you're dealing with someone on a one on one basis, because you're human beings, they deserve some kind treatment, some good treatment modality. Also, this is something that we must take care of when we're dealing with the non Muslims. The third level of interaction is more ominous.
And what does that mean?
When you have to deal with the people for some work, for example, business transaction. Similarly, you're going to school and you have a teacher who is non Muslim, you work somewhere and your employer is a non Muslim, you go to the hospital, you go to visit the doctor and the doctor is a non Muslim.
You go to the library, and the librarian is a non Muslim. You sit in a cab and the cab driver is a non Muslim.
You go on the bus and the bus driver is a non Muslim. So this is when you come in contact with someone why? because of some work, because somewhere Amina.
So you need to consult a physician, you go to the doctor, and the doctor is anonymous, that you need to study something, you go to school, and the teacher is a non Muslim. Now just because they're non Muslim, you're not gonna deal with them. Just because your professor, your teacher at school is a non Muslim. And they give you homework you say, oh, who cares? She's a non Muslim. So if she gives me homework, I don't have to listen to her. No. Similarly, if you are sitting in a cab, and the driver is a non Muslim, you're going to say I can leave whatever garbage here I can just because it belongs to anonymous, and let me just ruin some of it. Because I hate non Muslims. I hate cofell. So
I'm just going to put a bad mark on the seat. I'm going to take dirty shoes inside on purpose deliberately, also non Muslim who cares? No.
More, I'm an activist. When you're dealing with someone for some work, then you deal with them properly.
So for example, if you have to speak with a non Muslim teacher with a non Muslim instructor, if you have to ask a question you should ask. You can ask you can speak to them.
But just because they're non Muslim, your religion does not prohibit you from talking to them. For instance, some people will say, are non Muslims, because they don't have Eman. So don't refer to them at all. Don't ask them anything, because they don't have you, man. They don't have any alcohol, they don't have any reason. And even if they are the best in their field, still, don't consult them. Don't ask them why non Muslim? No, this is something that goes against our religion.
Similarly, when you have a boss, when you have an employer who's a non Muslim, when you think you can cheat them, just because they're a non Muslim, that is also incorrect. When you are answerable in front of them, what is required that we must be honest, we must be truthful.
We see that the prophets are lonesome, he had left a security deposit with a Jew in the eye The day after that, when we learned about the Ron do deposit something as a security with the creditor someone whom you're taking a loan from. So the profits are a lot of them did Marama with non Muslims as well. He borrowed something from a Jewish man, and he left his sword as a runner. This is what more ominous now just because he's anonymous, and you're not going to deal with him. No more, I'm glad this is also something that is permissible.
Now, the fourth level of interacting with people have relationships with people that is of more or less
from well lamea which is what is being mentioned in this ayah.
The word Well, he is from the same root as well. What is Mona Mona is close, intimate friendship with someone.
And what happens in this friendship is that you support
The other, you help the other at all costs.
You accept them, you agree with them 100%. And if they want your help, if they want your cooperation, you cooperate with them 100% even if that means you have to compromise something,
even if that means you have to leave something, and even if that thing which you have to compromise on, which you have to leave, is the command of Allah, the religion of Allah. This is what morality is. So we see that this relationship of morality includes love for each other, listening to each other, obeying each other, even if it means going against them, compromising the deen and this is something that is forbidden with the disbelievers. We may have an asset with a lot more armor that all of this is permissible. But when it comes to marijuana, then this is only for Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, it is not with the disbelievers. Why.
Because when you befriend someone in such a way, that you agree with them, 100% you cooperate with them whenever they want your cooperation? What does that mean? That your dean is going to be compromised? So for example, we learned earlier insulted bakura that marrying disbelievers is something that is forbidden. Why? Because when you're married to someone, what does that mean? That you will do what they like, you will do what they do, they're not going to get it for a budget, they're not going to pray, they're not going to fast in the month of Ramadan. They're not going to encourage you to recite the Quran, they're not going to encourage you to spend in the way of Allah.
So how are you going to practice your religion, you will not be able to practice your religion. And then part of this relationship is that you agree with them, you approve their actions. So for example, when they're doing ship, when they're disobeying Allah, you as a best friend, what are you going to do? acknowledge it, you're going to allow it, you're going to permit it, you're going to cooperate with them in order to do it. So therefore, this is something that is forbidden.
Now, we see that close friendship with non believers is prohibited for several reasons.
What are those reasons? First of all, because this friendship affects your deen, this friendship, what does it do? It affects your deen it makes you compromise on your religion. It makes you go against your religion. And this is the reason why marriage with the machine is something that is forbidden. What does the law say over there will aka either owner now such people they're calling you to the fire. So when you cooperate with them, when you listen to them, you're going to end up doing that which is going to lead you to hellfire. So when you befriend them in such a way, what's going to happen you're going to compromise your religion. And this is exactly what the Bani Israel
did. Remember in certain bacala in 8485, we learned about the mythique. About the covenant that was taken from the Bani Israel. What was that covenant that you're not going to kill each other? The Bani Israel were told, you're not going to kill your own people. You're not going to expel your own people. You're not going to cooperate with others against your own people. This was a mishap that was taken from them. But we learned that the money is vital, especially those tribes who were living in Medina, they had made allies meaning wallet with who, with the machine the Jews had made while has to do with the machine and when they had the war, when they had several battles. What did that
mean? They were fighting against their own people.
They were killing their own Muslim brothers and sisters. They expel them from their homes. And when the battle was over, they went why to pay the ransom and freedom.
Let me read these verses to you. Well, it hardened me Takako let us speak una de la como la to Regina and Prosecco Mindy eriko. Toma kurata will enter into shadowing someone to help with a taco to Luna and full circle with Tony Jennifer you come in Come in de m. de la Haruna la him believe me when are the one where he had to come Osada to fly to home wahoo Omaha, Ramona, la come, Harajuku.
So we see that when a person has such a close friendship with the disbelievers. What does that mean? That sometimes you will have to go against your religion. Now the Jews, they had made allies with who, with the machine. And when you're allies with someone, what does that mean that when they go to war, you go to war with them. When somebody fights them, they also fight you.
So if they're allies,
We're fighting against their Muslim brothers and sisters. What did they do? They went and fought against their own people. This is why this friendship is forbidden. Because it makes a person go against his team, it makes a person compromises the and this is just one example. This can be applied to Salah, this can be applied to so many things, that if you're going to be friends with them, if you're going to be with them all the time, if they're your best buddies, if they listen to music, you're going to end up listening to this one. If they go to a party, in which there is a lot of how long and because you're their best friend, you're going to end up going there as well.
So, such friendship affects the the therefore this friendship is not permissible. Secondly, another reason as to why this friendship is not permissible, is that when a person befriends another, he takes us influence. How, in the habits in speech in lifestyle, what do we learn from the Hadees that Allahu Allah Dini highly? A person is under religion of his friend. So whatever your friend does, you will do that as well. You get used to it. So for example, if you hear foul language all the time, what are you going to do? You're going to start using it as well. We see that in our kids, they go to school, and their friends, their children, there are people who are away from the deen
and the language that those kids use the same language our children use as well, so easily, so casually, on every little thing, big big words are coming out of their mouth, and they don't care why? Because for them, it's something so normal. Similarly, when you watch TV, and you're hearing these foul words all the time, obviously, there's something that's going to become very easy for you to say as well. So, a person takes influence from his friends. Therefore, a person should be careful that he must not befriend those who are away from the D. Those who are against the those who market your deen those who deny your D. How can you prevent such people? Whatever they do, you will do as
We learn in the Quran. Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you Hello, Dina and Manu latifolia houda nesara Alia Babu earlier about women get a wonder woman come in who men home?
What does he is a woman yet a wonder woman come for inner who men home or believers do not take the Jews and Christians as close friends. Why? Because they are friends of one another. And whoever befriends them, then surely he is one of them. What does he mean by this? That he will eventually become like them, he will dress like them, he will behave like them, he will talk like them, he will live like them. He will take influence from them. Because all the relationships that we have with people, they affect us in some way or the other. Therefore do not befriend a disbeliever so closely, that their religion their way they practice their habits, they affect you and you go farther and
farther away from your deen.
Another reason as to why friendship with the disbelievers close friendship more or less is forbidden. And what is that reason? That when a person befriends non believers, and he lives with them, he talks with them he in the sense that he interacts with them all the time, and he approves of their actions. He promotes their ways he cooperates with them, then he is forgetting his responsibility as a member of the Muslim Ummah
as a member of the Muslim Ummah, as a Muslim, what is your responsibility that you have to follow your deen and you also have to tell other people about the team.
But when you are saying to a person, that what you're doing is fine. What you're doing is okay, I approve it, I accept it. I will do it as well with you, then what does that mean? That you're not going to tell them about what they should do and what they should not do? You're going to accept them as they are and you're not going to work on trying to tell them about the deen.
So therefore, this is also one of the reasons as to why one act with the disbelievers is something that is forbidden.
Another reason is the protection of our even
remember that all of the commands all of the prohibitions that have been given to us in our day, they serve to achieve some goal. Remember them the cost of the [???]tier the goals of the [???]tier, the objective of the [???]tier What are they the protection of a person's Dean. So anything that harms the person's Dean
Or takes him away from his Deen, then that thing is forbidden.
Or anything that improves the deen of a person that thing is commanded it is encouraged.
For example, praying four or five times a day, a person may wonder why not just once a week or five times a day? Because praying five times a day makes a person focused on his Deen. Therefore, the commands that have been given in our religion, what did they serve as a means to achieve some goal?
Similarly, when friendship close, intimate friendship is forbidden with the non believers, what's the purpose, protection of even?
What are the other objectives of the [???]tier
protection of life, which is why murder is forbidden. Similarly, protection of alcohol of intellect, which is why alcohol is forbidden protection of lineage, which is why Xena is forbidden, or that you can't just adopt a child and give him your own name. No, he will still keep the name of his actual father, or in the case of Xena, biological mother. So protection of lineage as well. And also protection of wealth, which is why theft is forbidden. So when Allah Subhana, Allah has commanded us that we must not befriend disbelievers in such a way that they influence us in a way that it will take us away from the deen. Why? Why is it so for the protection of our email?
What else can you think? Why else is this type of friendship forbidden? What comes to your mind
it will affect your personal life, it will affect your thinking, your outlook on life, if that person is very materialistic, you're going to become materialistic as well. If their focus is on the benefits of dunya, your focus will become benefits of money as well, even if that means compromising your appeal. If they promote taking labor, or giving labor so you can buy a house that you can achieve your dream similar to you're going to do the same thing. It makes you live a double life that when you're with them, you do what they approve off. And when you're at home, you do what your family approves of.
And you will not have any confidence in your email in your Islam, that you will think that everything you have to do should meet their standards, because your goal is to please them because that's what only I do. You please each other, you assist each other you support each other all the time you approve of one another. So if your goal is to please them that how would you have any confidence in your deen, you cannot have any confidence. You forget your own identity when you're influenced by them.
And you're depriving yourself of doing something that is better when you're being ODM with them, helping them supporting them, cooperating with them in ways that are incorrect. Remember, don't misunderstand what I'm saying though, why that is forbidden. But other than that, all the three levels of interaction that I told you about morisset mudaraba mamilla that is something that we must do, that we can do we are allowed to do. And that on the Day of Judgment, a person will be with the one whom he loves. So if our love is for those who disobey Allah, who oppose the religion of Allah, where will we be on that day?
Another reason is that when a person befriends his own enemy, what is he doing? He's bringing harm upon himself. Just imagine the Muslims left Makkah. They came to Medina, why? Because their lives were at risk in Makkah. And in Medina, if they were to befriend the Moroccans, what was that bringing harm upon themselves? So for example, we learned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam intended to go and conquer Makkah, when he decided to conquer Makkah, what happened was that one of the companions, how to deal on war and who some of his relatives were still in Makkah. So he was worried about them about their security, about their safety, because obviously, there was going to
be an army that is coming to Makkah. So there was going to be conquest. So he was worried about their safety and their security. So he wrote a letter to the people of Makkah, informing them about the profit sort of plan, about his intention.
Why, so that he could assure some security and safety for his family.
And obviously, when he wrote that letter, the intrapreneurial tool, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who sent some companions are needed to learn how to find that woman who was taking the letter, the woman was caught the letter was taken, and obviously the machine did not find out and then what happened, a loss of penalty revealed some verses in which we learned that he had a you let me know let me do i do we, what are the what come earlier, or you will believe take not my enemies and your enemies as friends.
When a person befriends his enemy, when he goes to him for help and support, then he is harming himself into the earlier one I 118 we learn. Yeah, you are letting me know. Let that little bit anata Minh do Nico les Luna cabela all you who have believed do not take us intimates those other than yourselves for they will not spare you and you ruin
if you're going to go and tell them about your secrets, about your plans about your goals, you think they're going to cooperate with you know, he's your enemy, he's not going to help you. He's not going to support you. For example, you go tell your non Muslim friend about your goal to do the hour. Study the Quran, are they going to encourage you, not necessarily. Salah Luna can favela similarly, we see that if a person befriends the enemies of Allah, those people who are against those people who are against the religion of Allah who are opposing their religion of Allah, what is he going to do, he is also going to be influenced, in a way that he will also begin opposing their
religion, leaving the religion disagreeing with their religion, objecting, at the deen of Allah, this is something that he will also begin to do. Which is why Allah says that whoever of you does that, then he has nothing with meaning he's not in the deen of Allah anymore. Because obviously, he's going to get influenced. And he is also going to do the same thing that these people are doing, which is opposing the novella.
So that's where I'm at. But if you take it to a level in which your friendship means that whatever you give me, I will take whatever you say to me, I will do. If I'm wearing hijab, and you don't want me to wear hijab in your house, I will do it because you're my friend. That is what, more or less, and that is forbidden.
Similarly, just because you're my friend, and whatever you offer me, even if it's hard on food, I will eat it because you're my best friend, I cannot make you upset. That is something that is forbidden. But if they're offering you something Hello, something that is permissible, why not take it.
To summarize the idea when it comes to interacting with the disbelievers, there are different levels, the only thing that is forbidden is such a dealing or such an interaction or such a friendship, that is going to affect your religion, that is going to make you compromise on your religion.
And remember that this is not something that is limited to the non believers only. Even if there is a Muslim, who is telling you to leave your religion go against your religion compromise your thing, are you going to listen to them? No, you're not going to, because there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator. This is a main lesson of the ayah that when it comes to showing compassion to the disbelievers Go ahead, but if their friendship leads you to compromising your religion, doing that which Allah disapproves of, then that is something that is forbidden.
And also remember that when it comes to interacting with them, when it comes to the friending them, that is also that must be done in a limited quantity. Why? Because if you're interacting with them all the time, are they going to mention? Are they going to miss a panel? Are they going to say Alhamdulillah? Are they going to say in an ally who are in a big room? Are they going to encourage you to do Sabbath? No, your company affects you. And when you are with those people who are righteous, then obviously your outlook in life, your actions, your thinking, your behavior will be different.
And if you're sitting and interacting with people all the time, those people who are not Muslim, then you will think like them, you will talk like them, you will behave like them.
well you have to come alone, so along warns you against himself, that it's possible that you enjoy some benefits in this life because of close friendship with them. But eventually Where are you going after and over there. You have to be answerable for everything you do and you can't put blame on other people at that time.
For example, we learn in the Quran about people who compromise their religion. Why? Just because they're oppressed in and then they have to do so. They have
To listen to the people around them because their life is in danger is at risk. So what are the toll at the time of death, the angels beat them and they say, isn't the earth of Allah vast that you could go somewhere else and practice your religion freely. So remember that this dunya is not permanent. We cannot make excuses that because I'm here, because, you know, I'm a non Muslim land. And when I wear hijab, people don't like it. So therefore, I'm not going to wear it. If I go to school, if I pray a Salah at the time of Salah people don't like it, therefore I'm going to leave my sweater. No, you cannot do that. Remember, if their friendship, if affiliation with them, is causing
you to compromise on your religion, even a little bit, even a little bit. It's not in your favor, it's going to be against you. Because this dunya is not eternal. If you link this ayah with the previous verses, what would the previous verses talk about? That Allah is the medical molk Allah is the medical molk Milka mentorship one zero Milka. minmum. Tasha, what's the result? Manisha? What are the Look, man Tasha? Why is it that we turn to the disbelievers with more or less, why?
To gain their approval?
To make them accept us, so that they accept us? They appreciate us, they like us. We are so influenced by them, that if we get their stamp that they like us, that's it, we're fine. Who is the medical mulk? Who is one who gives research? Who is one who takes or is there a way
So if you want to go to go to a law, not your enemies.
So basically for a believer, Allah subhanaw taala comes first his command that comes first. And then comes any other human being.
We have not been told to isolate ourselves and to completely disconnect with the people who we are living with in a society, which is why was that Moodle rot and marma lead is something that we must do. But if we really understand the meaning of more or less than one that is it your number one, I will leave anything for your sake, I will do anything for your sake. This is something that is forbidden with the disbelievers. Why? Because if they tell you to disobey Allah, are you going to do that? No, you should not. But if you have one athlete and then you have to.
So the point is not to isolate ourselves to completely disconnect with the rest of the society. No, this is not something that are the intelligence. When you're living in a society you should be a beneficial member of the society. And in order to do that, you have to do more than with earthenware. omelette, you have to deal with the people you cannot isolate yourself. The only thing that is forbidden is one that is only for the believers.
Call into form if you
say if you conceal what is in your hearts, those from the newsletters, halfaya Javier, what does that mean? To hide something to conceal something to keep something secret. So if you hide whatever is in your pseudo pseudo discipline of Southern and what the southern mean, chest, now what is in the chest, the heart, and what is in the heart, our emotions, our intentions, our feelings, whether they are good or bad. And notice this idea comes right after the idea of friendship. Why? Because friendship is also where in the heart. So if you hide whatever is in your hearts, meaning you don't tell anybody about it, you don't show it. You don't share it with anyone out of the blue, or you
disclose it to someone you do tell somebody about it to produce from the better is better. Well, and remember that a person can hide what is in his heart, how, by not telling anybody about it, and also by not acting upon it. But it's a feeling. It's an intention. It's a wish, it's a desire, that is in the heart. You never act upon it. You never tell anybody about it, but it's still in your heart. And oh, to be doable, how does a person reveal it? Either by telling somebody about it, or by acting, according to it.
So whether you hide it, or you show it, whether you don't act upon it, or you act upon it, whether you don't tell somebody about it, or you tell somebody about it, yharnam Allah, Allah knows about it, you can't hide anything from Allah. So it's possible that on the apparent you're not showing any friendship to them, but your heart, your feelings, your sincerity, your loyalty is way too, with the non believers. Or it's possible you don't do something on the outward, but in the heart is the intense desire to do it. You wish you could do it.
For example, on the outward, apparently, you cannot eat something that is how long? Why? If you do it, your mother is going to give it to you, the other people around you, they're not going to let you do it. But the desire still in the heart of law knows that that desire, even if you don't get to act upon it,
and if you do it, if you act upon that intention, still a Lost Planet, Allah knows of it. And when he knows of it, he can call you to account for it. So at the end of the day, who should you fear people or Allah, Allah?
We are number macrosomia. Where do you want my fill up? And he knows whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is in the earth, will long who are there collegia included and allies evil over everything? What do we learn from this ayah that first of all, nothing at all is hidden from Allah, his knowledge encompasses everything.
Therefore, our focus should be on improving ourselves, improving the state of our hearts.
We learned early instead of our individual Murphy and physical otaku, into the earlier one, if we learned in the law, lay a fairly shaven fill early, well after summer. So again, and again, this concept is being reinforced that don't fear people fear a law and out of the fear of Allah, do that which is right out of the fear of Allah leave that which is wrong.
So it's possible that you befriend someone, and they tell you to do something that is wrong, and you do it, thinking, My mother is never going to find out. My parents are never going to find out my family is never going to find out. I'll do it anyway. But Allah knows of it.
And at the end of the day, you're accountable to Allah. So nothing at all is hidden from Allah.
Also, we see that the heart of a person plays a very important rule. It's not just a piece of flesh that pumps blood. No, the heart is where the Quran was revealed. The heart is where the intentions are, and Latif sudduth the heart sees it.
And also we learn in the Quran, we're hustler, Mephisto do, that whatever is in the hearts will be brought out what is in the heart, love is in the heart. Hate is in the heart, intention, goal, desires, wishes. So all of these should be according to standards, the standard of a loss because at the end of the day, we are accountable to him. We learn in a Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Men have been
the one who loves for the sake of Allah, whereas hope in the heart was available. In the end he hated another or hated something. Why? For the sake of Allah, whereas both Where's hatred in the heart? Well, men are anila and gives for the sake of Allah, where's the intention to give in the heart and He withhold something, why, for the sake of Allah, such a person has completed his faith. Such a person has perfected his faith that God is documented, amen. So the heart plays a very important role. Therefore, we need to clean up our hearts, we need to focus on the improvement on the nourishment of our hearts.
Yamato do you do on the day that it will find who will find colon Epson every person will find
that you do it from the clitoris while gene that from the word would you What does that mean? existence. And then it also means to find something it's the opposite of an atom is non existence when something is not there, you cannot find it no matter how much you try. But when something has a widget, when something exists, then you can eventually find it.
So your Moto G do on the day that coloane absent every soul is going to find meaning it's going to see ma millet whatever that it did marami that meaning any action that it did, whether it is under a level, oka surah or it was a lot more or minute any action that a person did a lot or a little but min Hayden have good meaning any good deed that a person has done a little or a lot in words or inactions
Riba or ITAR obedience or dealing with other people in a good way, no matter what kind of a good deed it is, a person will find it were more borrow one presented by some new fetters, how ba ba from the word Hulu, which means to be present somewhere. So, more love is that which is presented that which is brought face to face. So, a person will find any good deed that he did present. What does it mean by this that he will find it present. This is understood in several ways that first of all, he will find that good deed
Written, were in the record of deeds.
Today, whatever actions we're doing,
we do them and we forget them. We do a good deed, we forget about it or other people don't find about it. It's hidden. But on the Day of Judgment, any good deeds that a person has performed, he will find it how much law meaning written, clearly written.
Secondly, worthless means that a person will find it's just a, it's recompense the reward for it, because over here in particular monheit good deed has been mentioned.
So a person will find it on the Day of Judgment, how, in the form of its reward.
For example, we learn about barons who make their child memorize the Quran, recite the Quran, they will be rewarded and honored on the Day of Judgment.
So, that honor is what is a form of reward for the good deed that they had done in the dunya. So much by means that they will find the reward they deserve for the good deed present.
And we also see over here, that Moore's Law, you see something present when, when it's something that is physical,
when it is something that has a shape, when it is something that has a form. So this means that good deeds will take a physical form of physical shape on that day,
and these deeds will also be weighed. For example, in total of eight we learned while was new yoga, even in health, and the weighing of deeds that there will be the truth,
meaning deeds will be weighed on that day,
they will take a physical form on that day. For example, we learnt about reciting the Quran surah earlier in one for a person who recites them regularly, how will they come in the form of two clouds or two shades or two lines of birds. So, his act his good deed will take a physical form on that day. Similarly, a person who recites the Quran acts upon the Quran gives a hug of the Quran, the Quran will be his companion where in the grave, the Quran will come during Shankara for him on the Day of Judgment. Similarly, a person who give sadaqa in dystonia, that sadaqa will be a means of shared for him in the afternoon. So a good deed done in the dunya will take a physical form, in the
similarly an animal that a person sacrifices in the dunya for the sake of Allah, a sacrificial animal, the blood of that animal, the hair, all of that will be weighed, and a person will be rewarded for every hair, for every drop of blood. Imagine.
Similarly, the animal that a person sacrifices for the sake of Allah in the dunya, it will become a means of transportation for him, were on the slot, to cross the bridge on the Day of Judgment. So good deeds, that a person doesn't have done yet, he will find him muffler on the Day of Judgment, how, first of all, written in front of him. Secondly, they're just that and thirdly, in physical form,
one army that and whatever it did minzu in evil as well, meaning any action, any evil action that a person has done, he will also find that martial law on the Day of Judgment, and what does it mean by mortara se meaning, he will find it written, he will find it just the punishment for it, and he will find it in a physical form on the Day of Judgment. For example, a person who does not give the cat on golden silver, what will happen on the Day of Judgment, the same gold and silver will be heated up in fire, and it will be put on him, it will be branded on his forehead, on his back.
So, punishment in physical form. Similarly, if a person has stolen something from Baten man, from the Muslim Treasury, from the public Treasury, if a person has stolen something, for example, you go to a machine and you find a nice coat on, who does it belong to, you know, it belongs to the masjid, it belongs to everybody. But you say I like it so much, I'm going to take it home. Although it is something very good, but it is also theft, and a person who steal something from the public Treasury. That thing will come on the day of judgment to him and you will have to carry it upon himself.
Just imagine you will have to carry it upon himself for the entire length of the Day of Judgment.
And remember that when a person develops his habit of stealing one thing, then he ends up stealing more and more things. It's one pen, then it's another pen, then it's a stapler, then it's a piece of paper, then it's a notebook, then it's somebody else's shoes.
Because then it's one thing after the other and just imagine carrying all those things, on the Day of Judgment for the entire length of the Day of Judgment. If you go somewhere and you have to wait for a long time, even your purse with your necessities becomes such a burden, when you have to wait at the airport, and you have to carry your handbag, your hand luggage, your hand trolley, although it has wheels, you can put it on the floor, you're not carrying on your head the whole time. But still it becomes such a burden. Just imagine carrying heavy things on yourself throughout the day, whose length is 50,000 years. It's not a few minutes is 50,000 years. So well. Now, I mean, that
means to an every evil action that a person has done he will find it more thought how written it's just that and also in the physical form. On the day of judgment. What do we learn the Quran woman Yama with Kala della teen Sha one, Yahoo, whoever does even an atom's weight of evil atoms with something so tiny. You can't even see it. If you try to touch it. You can't touch it, you can't feel it. something as small as that also, a person will see it recorded in his record,
which is why we learned so little calfire 49 What will the URL key taboo federal almajiri mean? And will Shana Murphy, and the record of these will be placed open and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it. Way akula coluna and they will say yawei nutana, manhandle kita la you audio, so the autumn, whatever can be written in there for her, they will say a word to us. What is this book, that means nothing small or great, except that it has enumerated it.
One I mean that mean, so every small and big action, if it's evil, it will be written, and the person will be made to see it on the Day of Judgment, this is what you did.
And many times we belittle small since we belittle minor sins. And sometimes we go on saying things that are very inappropriate or doing things that are very inappropriate thinking that they don't have any value, or they don't mean anything. For example, we learned that once the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she mentioned about the height of somebody else, and she said, She's like this meaning she pointed that she's very short.
And what did the Prophet said about this? And I'm saying that this statement of yours if it was mixed in the ocean, in the sea, it would make the entire water better.
We pass these comments, we make such remarks all the time.
Somebody's height, and somebody's fingers, and somebody's way of talking. This is what we do all the time, talking and talking and commenting and passing remarks and other people on what they're doing, forgetting that we have to do something ourselves as well. Well now armina minzu. Notice it's Mad, Mad means anything small or big. He will find it written, he will find its recompense for it. He will find it in a physical form on that day. Unit bowl in San uyama, even Bhima Adama ahora man will be informed that day of what he sent ahead and what he gets back so to piano i a 13.
That will do it will wish who will wish every neffs is going to wish there were some new veterans well that notice the word do is that and that is a sign of feminine. Why? Because knifes in the Arabic language is feminine.
So it will wish meaning every nafs is going to wish it's going to yearn it's going to long for what that low anabaena hair will be the Who am Adam bear either. If only there was a long distance, there was an extremely lengthy distance between it and between who baina hair webinar who What does Vayner hair refer to hair refers to the nuts of the person. And bainer who who refers to the AMA, the action the sin that a person has committed. And the word ama ism newsletters hums that mean that I'm not an avid quality and if he had a better, I'm not an avid both are used for time. And both of them. They indicate a long span of time. I bet in particular gives the meaning of eternity. About
means eternity forever, on and on. And I'm at the word that you see over here with a meme. It gives the meaning of a long timespan a long period of time that has a limit. So for example, 1000s and 1000s of years if you say 2000
10,000 50,000 Yes, it's very long, but eventually it has a limit. But ever this word without limit eternal.
Over here law says, lo innovate in our beta Who am Adam berita. If only there was between the person and between his action, a distance, what distance amid a long distance, they're either buried gives meaning a very far. And remember this distance does not give the meaning of distance in space, but distance and time, that extremely lengthy distance so that he can never reach it, he can never reach the consequence, the punishment, that it takes very long to be able to see it, to be able to reach it, to be able to receive it, Mr. Dunbar either
in the dunya right now, what are we taught that what do I should we make Allahumma Barre the benei ouabain.
Oh Allah, but a distance between me and between my sense, create a distance between me and my sense. And when we begin our so that we say this law is too long, let me just make another one. Let me just say something else instead. But on the Day of Judgment, when a person will see his sins, man, I mean, that mean, so every small and big, minor and major, little and a lot, what will he wish for? That there was a distance between him and the sin that he committed? A long time, more and more time. So it takes longer to finally reach it, it takes longer to finally see it.
Where you have little common love and if so, who? And Allah warns you from himself, meaning Allah cautions you against his punishment, his anger, why is this mentioned over here again, for emphasis, will you have the law common law when epsa who will LaHood are often very bad and Allah is most kind with the servants, the name of Allah subhanaw taala is from the real fetters ra Hamza and refer is to show compassion.
When you remember, what effect is more than Rama. Rama is to be merciful to be kind to be affectionate. But Rafa is when you see someone in in a difficult situation, you're overwhelmed. You're overcome with feelings of compassion and mercy and you can't bear to see them in difficulty and out of that affection, out of that compassion, you do something to remove that difficulty from them. Will LaHood have often been a bad and a bad is a Florida are now is mentioned over here, where you have little como la one of several will la hora often very bad. Allah warns you, Allah cautions you, he makes you fear Him. And unless compassionate and guide.
Generally what do we think that someone who warns us? They're not kind? They don't care for us. That's what we think generally, somebody who is telling us what to do and what not to do, who is telling us Be careful. Otherwise, I'm going to question you, otherwise, I'm going to punish you. What do we think? They're not affectionate? Because for us, mercy and affection and compassion means you do whatever you want, I'll forgive you.
But it is in fact, out of the favela out of the compassion and mercy of Allah, that he warns us
remember, that his the Vive, you had the rose from the here, what does that need me to warn and caution. His that he is a part of His love
is a part of his compassion
that he winds us from before, so we don't do anything wrong.
He warns us from before, before we do something wrong. He warns us so that we don't do that wrong action will not hurt are often very bad. And Allah is most affectionate towards his servants.
So what does this show us that if we do something that is good, we should be hopeful for their life. And when we do something wrong, then we should be warned. Because you have little como la de la hora often very bad.
Cody, yo, Moto, G,
For the Day of Judgment, when a person will see the sense that he has committed written down, when he will see the recompense when he will see the recompense in a physical form, what will you wish that there is a long distance between him and the same? Because he will not want to see it.
It's like in the dunya, when you know that your result is coming on a particular date. And you know that you haven't done that, well. What do you want the month to be longer, the week to be longer, so that you don't get the bad news. You don't get to hear that which is going to upset you. You don't get to see that which is going to put a bad mark on you.
And on the Day of Judgment, for all the sins that we have committed, this is going to be the state of people that they will wish there's a long distance between them and the sin that they have committed so that they don't have to see it. They don't have to take it. They don't have to witness it. They don't have to confess it. No. They want to be away from it completely disassociated from it.
But Allah is wanting us now. Do something today. Yo moto. Kowloon, Epson, ma millet, Min, Hiram Mahara, do the height today, and stay away from the suit today. So you don't have to be embarrassed tomorrow. And it is out of the compassion and mercy of Allah that He is telling you now. So take the warning.
If you look at all of these verses that we have read so far, that first of all, when it comes to dealing with the disbelievers, make sure you do not befriend them in a way that they become your first priority, that you give them a level above that, which is exclusively for a loss presented in the sense that you prefer them over your deen and you compromise on your religion, because of them to make them happy to please them.
And then we learned that a loss of panel data is aware of everything, whether we conceal it, or we hide it, if we have such friendship, whether we hide it in our hearts, whether we keep it to our private lives, or we make it open for everybody to know, a loss of parents it knows about it. And then we learned that all of the actions that we do, whether good or bad, a little or a lot will be displayed to us on the Day of Judgment. If you look at it, many of the actions that we do, especially when it comes to small actions, small deeds good or bad, why do we do them? Because we have taken influence from other people.
For instance, passing a remark passing a comment, making fun of someone using a word that is bad, it becomes easy for us Why? Because we have heard it so many times we have seen other people using it so many times. So our friendship, our company, the company that we keep the friends that we make, they affect us whether we want or not. And many times we say that no, no, I'm not going to take this influence. I'm not going to listen to them in this regard. But no matter how hard we try still those people whom we sit with, we talk with the influences.
So our actions, what are they based upon what we decide as to what we want to do and also what influence we take from other people. This is why when it comes to making our friends we have to be extremely careful.
Then Allah says all in quantum taheebo Nevada say, if you love Allah, factor biruni then you should follow me. You will come Allah, Allah will love you. Well, the luck of the Uber come and he will forgive for you your sins will love a photo of Rahim and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful
in kuntum to have buena Maha, if you really love Allah to have buena is from the roof better his hair back.
And hope means love. It is said that muhabba is the inclination of the knifes to that which a person finds very amazing. Or a person finds an amazing quality within it. So for example, you see something it has a very nice color or it tastes very good. It has a beautiful fragrance. You see someone and the way they speak the way they talk. It's very impressive. So what is my habit, the inclination of the knifes do that which a person finds impressive. Do that in which a person finds some command some perfection, some quality
Some good characteristic. This is what muhabba is. So if you love Allah, meaning if you truly love Allah, if you claim to love Allah, then obviously what's going to happen? When you love something, you're drawn towards it. So if you love Allah, you are going to be drawn towards him. And in that process, what are you going to do? All of your focus all of your attention is going to be on Allah subhanaw taala pleasing Allah, and you're going to focus on staying away from anything that Allah disapproves of. So if you love a lot, if you claim to love Allah, then prove your show. You're not just saying that you love is not enough. You have to show it and how are you going to show that you
love Allah factor the Rooney then you should follow me follow will follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because he is coal. Meaning all prophets are about Islam. You tell the people that if you claim to love Allah, then prove it. How? By following me meaning by following the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
It is not that this ayah was revealed. Because when the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim invited the Bani Israel, the Jews of Medina to accept Islam, the National Urban Allah, we are the children of Allah hibou and we are those who Allah loves, therefore, we don't need to follow you. Allah already loves us. We are already his chosen ones. Allah loves us. And obviously, when you claim that somebody loves you, love is both sided. So he loves us and we love him. Then this AI was revealed that if you claim to love Allah, then you must follow the Prophet. So
it is also said some companions, they said that we love our Lord, we love the last panel.
And we love a loss of planetary with her ventured Eden, intense love. So Allah subhanaw taala wish to make a sign for them, so that they would know that Allah also loves them. That if you say that you love Allah and you're doing so much to please Allah to make Allah happy, then what's the sign that Allah also loves you? The sign is that you will follow the Sunnah of the Prophet but to be earning
that you will follow the Sunnah of the Prophet. If we look at this ayah Allah says income from the Hebrew number, it's a condition in is what a sharp if you claim to love Allah, remember that claiming something, saying something is always easy.
Making the claim is always easy. But when somebody says something, when somebody makes a claim, it's not necessary that they are true. In their claim, they are sincere in their thing. Therefore, a lot puts a condition. If you claim to love Allah, then you have to follow the Prophet. And notice a word for following is it teba at various from tab there is an activity is to follow someone closely such that you follow every footstep of theirs, the way they went, you go the exact same way, the way they spoke, you speak the exact same way. The actions they did you do the exact same actions, this is what it is.
And it also gives a sense of following someone without being commanded. Meaning one is to do something. One is to listen to someone Why? Because they've told you about something. For example, if somebody tells you bring me a glass of water, they've given you an instruction. And what do you do? You follow them. But if the bar is that they haven't even said anything to you, but still, you follow them.
For example, you leave the house, and it's understood that your children are going to come with you. You tell them every time Come let's go. Sometimes you say Come let's go. But other times it's understood you have to go. So you're stepping out of the door means that they have to follow you as well. They don't have to be instructed every time. So if the bar is to follow someone without being commanded, without being instructed, this is what it is. without hearing the words of instruction, just do what they have done.
That is to follow someone very closely, that do exactly what they have done. If they have gone out this door, you go out this door, not the other door.
So if you claim to love Allah, then you should follow the Prophet, why follow the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because whatever he did, or whatever he said, Whatever he instructed, whatever he advised, was by Allah subhanaw taala directives, what do we learn into the magic? When I am the ideal, however, he does not speak out of his own desire out of his own whims.
So if he has done something, and if he has commanded you of something, it is based on what in who Illa you
He knew it is based on revelation. It is based on that which Allah Subhana Allah has commanded. So this is why you should follow him.
And following the prophets of Allah doesn't include four things, that how does a person do it the buyer of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in four ways, first of all in Iraq, either in belief that he believes in what the prophets are about Islam believes in, remember the last I
am Anna rasuluh Bhima 101.
And the believers also believe in the same that the prophets are allowed to certain beliefs. So whatever Sharia the prophets or
whatever commands the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave whatever the Prophet said, of all this and and believed in, and he taught us that we must also believe in that etbr of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam following him includes believing in the same way, in the same manner, in the same things in the same concepts in the same beliefs. So it, first of all, includes in acleda. Secondly, in Cohn, in statements, that following the profits are allowed, also in speech in statements, that whatever the profits are a lot has been said, We don't add to that. We don't delete anything of that.
Whatever he narrated to us, we don't edit it in any way. Whatever. he conveyed to us, we don't edit it in any way. We don't alter it in any way.
In the manner of his speech, the way that he spoke, we speak in a similar way. Whatever he told us to speak, we speak that.
Thirdly, in fairly in inaction, what does that mean? That whatever actions or profits are loaded and performed, we perform the same actions. Take the example of Salah or the example of Hajj in Salah. How do we perform the Salat in the manner that the Prophet sort of artisan performed? We don't add any new actions. We don't take any actions out that is what it is to follow exactly the way the profits are allotted and prayed.
And also in coal, because coal is included in for that you say that there are that is Miss noon. You recite that surah in the Salah, which is most noon for example, the prophets are about Islam in the Sunnah, prayers of fudge and mockery. In the first rocker he would recite so little caffeine in the second rocker he would recite, certainly floss. So what is it that you follow the Prophet sort of autism in the way that he performed the Sunnah that you perform to Rick Carson. And you in coal also, you do what he did.
So first of all, in Akita secondly, in coal, thirdly, in Ferran And fourthly in duck, what does that mean? To leave something?
So whatever the profits are, a lot of sudden left, whatever he did not pay attention to whatever he disregarded, whatever he ignored, we also leave that
you know, many times when it comes to doing righteous actions, people invent their own ways. If the Prophet subtle, notice that I'm left and he did not command us to do that, he did not tell us to do that. Who are we to invent these things? If he left it, we should leave it. So flutterby Rooney, so follow me, meaning, follow the way the method, the creed of the Prophet sort of answer, the actions, the ways the words of the prophets Coronavirus, and in fact, the beauty and following the Prophet is a condition for the acceptance of a person's claim that he loves Allah, what is love, it is a strong emotion that draws you towards that which you love, towards whom you love. The one whom you love the
thing that you love, you want to spend time with it, you want to spend time with him, you want to enjoy their company.
And in this process, what does a person do? He naturally leaves that which takes him away from what a person loves.
For example, you'd have to do a particular action you love to watch TV, for example, you'd have to watch a particular show or you love to check your email. What are you going to do? Are you going to spend time standing in the kitchen? or going out? No, you're going to leave everything else and focus on what focus on your beloved, focus on the one whom you love.
Now, the way that takes us to Allah, the way that takes us to the pleasure of Allah is which way, the way that he has taught us.
And what is the way that he has taught us through through the prophet sallallahu sallam, which is why his way is to sweat on his son. It's the best way. It's a beautiful example. It's the way of life it's the way of very bad
The way of action of word of speaking, that takes us to the pleasure of Allah.
The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is what is required of us that we must follow it in order to prove our love of Allah subhanaw taala. And when a person will follow the messenger set alongside them, as a result, what's going to happen? Your common law, a law would also love you.
Because imagine you love someone and they don't love you. Just imagine, how would that be? such love is a punishment for a person such love as a torment purpose, and it's a torture. They love someone, and they don't love him back. It's a torture. For example, we learn about these two people, but Hera and her ex husband, who was relief,
both of them were slaves. They were married to one another, but they were slaves and burrito when she was freed. That meant that she is also freed of her marriage to leave.
But Molly's loved her. And he said that he would go following her around the marketplace, throughout Medina, crying and weeping. Don't leave me Please don't leave me. And she had no interest in him. Absolutely no interest in him because she had been freed and she didn't like him anymore. She didn't want him anymore. To the point that profits are allowed and requested, but that just stay with him. He loves you so much is going crazy. Stay with him. And what did she say? That Is this your command? And he said no. She said, if it's your command, then someone will afar meaning that I will here in a bit. But if it's your advice, if it's your shofar, if your intercession if it's your request, then I
have no interest in him.
So this love that we've had for berita it was like torture for him, because he loved her, but she would not love him back. But look at this, that if you truly love Allah, and if you prove your love to Allah, how, by following the profits or loss, then as a result a lot will also love you. Allow it all to love you. And remember that in this dunya it's possible that we love someone so much and we do so much to please them, but they just don't love us. They just don't like
but love for Allah to Allah for Allah wins love of Allah.
In this dunya you love someone they're loving you in return is not guaranteed.
But when you love Allah and you sincerely love Allah when you truly love Allah, then Allah His love is also guaranteed because Allah says, yo babe, come Allah, Allah will love you.
When when you follow the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and also we have a look on vinoba calm and Allah will forgive for you your sins, Zulu, VISIT FLORIDA, them. So there are two benefits that are mentioned over here of following the profits out of all this and what are they? That first of all, I love them love you. And secondly, your sins will be forgiven.
We say that everybody claims to love Allah, people who are very righteous and people who are not even that righteous, I love God. Similarly, there are people who are Muslims, and there are people who are not Muslim, Jews, Christians, Muslims, everybody claims to love a loss.
But does Allah just accept their love? Just because they say that they love them? No, there is a condition. He wants proof. He wants some evidence. He wants to prove that you truly love him. And what is that proof? What is that evidence that you love him?
In the dunya when you love someone, what do you do? You follow them?
For example, people go online, they Google their name. Okay, what are they doing these days? Are they online? Are they mentioned somewhere?
They become their friends. They start following them. They follow them on different social networking websites. That's what people do in this dunya.
They hear that they have also joined this network. What do they do? They go in, become their friend. This is what happens in the dunya when you love someone, you automatically start following them. You don't even realize and you're following them. You're doing those things that they like you're doing those things that they do. So if you claim to love Allah, how is it that you're not going to do something that Allah likes that Allah approves of? What is the way that Omar approves off the way of the prophets of Allah.
So if you came to love Allah, and you don't follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam your claim is not true.
Your claim is only true when you're following the way of the prophets.
We see that it hasn't been said that if you love me than love my messenger. The condition is that if you love me, follow them as
Center. Because following means that you love the messenger and you also love.
True Love is what? obedience. True Love isn't following someone, not just saying that I love you, I love you. For example, if a child says to the mother, I love you, and the mother says, Bring me a glass of water. And he says, No, is that love? No.
Actions speak louder than words, which is why it's a T bar that you follow. you prove it through your actions, through your faith, through your code, through your ama, through your thoughts, you prove that you really love Allah, through the way that Allah subhanaw taala has told you about. And we see that the companions of the Prophet SAW the Lotus and all of them. They love the Prophet ceremony. And they also did it.
They didn't just claim that they love the Prophet, they loved Allah. But they actually followed the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
They followed him in the way that he stood up, in the manner that he spoke in the manner that you walked in the manner that he prayed to the point that some of the companions, they would even for example, unbutton, one of the buttons of their shirts, why? Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had his button open when he said that particular statement, this is how closely they followed the Prophet.
And what do we say? Or is this a Sunnah? Is it more of a market? But if you read of Allah, then you're not going to care about or your concern is not going to be okay Should I pray these four signals or should I leave them because your goal is what
you wish to speak to Allah, you wish to pray to Allah.
And then they will automatically follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So here, we have been given a criteria that analyze yourself, how much you love Allah,
your love for Allah subhanaw taala is going to be proven through your etbr or the prophets analyze
his Sunnah, a part of your life, the more Sunnah is a part of your life, the more you love Allah,
the scholars they call this ayah I will missioner
What does make me a test.
So this is basically a test. It tells you where you stand. How much love you have for Allah, it tells you because you can say all the time that you love Allah but if you don't prove it by following the prophets of Allah does and then your claim is false. So this is it. It tells you about the level of your love for Allah because that correlates with following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
We see that several even Abdullah, he said, Allah to have biLlahi for
the sign of the love of Allah is the love of Quran.
If you claim that you love Allah, then you will love the Quran. Why? Because it is the Quran Allah. It's the words of alights The Book of Allah. It's what Allah has said to you. What an amateur will call an herbal newbie. And the sign of the love of the Quran is the love of the prophets.
Do you actually love the Quran? Do you read of the Quran? What is going to show you, your love for the prophets that
were allowed to have been nebby herbison and the sign of the love of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the love of the sun, because many people they claim to love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but they don't actually follow.
So the sign of the love of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is what the love of the Sunnah,
is following the Sunnah of burden, or is it something that you love to do you enjoy doing
the sign of love of the Sunnah, his love of the next world and the sign of love of the next world, his dislike for this world. The sign of this fight for this world is that you do not store any of it except for provision and what you need to arrive safely in the next world.
That you don't get lost in the dunya your focus remains the
remember that love brings obedience. Love, what does it do? It brings obedience. If you love someone, you will obey them, definitely you will have better
once it was said, Locanda her boo Casa de con la authority who if your love was true, then you would have obeyed him obeyed who Locanda her book Assad is the authority who if your love was true, you would have obeyed your beloved in Al muhabba Lima in your book material
Indeed the person who loves he is obedient to the one whom he loves.
What is it that proves your love? Your actions? What is it that proves your love for Allah? Your actions which actions are most likely had and which ones are those? Those that are done out of sincerity for Allah and secondly according to the Sunnah of the Prophet set of eyes.
So, if you claim to love Allah, then Follow me Follow the Prophet sallallahu sallam. As a result, you're welcome Allah, Allah will love you. Well, Phil accom de novo COMM And he will also forgive you your sins isn't something so important. Following the Sunnah brings the love of Allah, it also brings forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala
there is a hadith which tells us the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, When Allah loves a slave, he calls gibreel. And he says, I love so and so. So you should also love him. And then jabril loves him. Then gibreel announces in the heavens saying, Allah love so and so. So love him, then the inhabitants of the heavens meaning the angels, they also love him, and then the people on the earth also love him.
So when a person follows the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there are many benefits, many, many benefits. First of all, a lower love him. Secondly, the creation of Allah will also love him. And there is also forgiveness for that person. So whoever wants forgiveness, whoever wants that others should love him. Most importantly, Allah should love him. What should we do? Follow the sun.
If you look at it, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is such that it automatically develops good relationships. It automatically invites the love of other people.
For example, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam always smile, smiling is a major sin. Now, obviously, if you smile at someone what's going to happen, they're going to smile back at you. Maybe it's going to spark a conversation. And maybe you're going to tell them about something that they would enjoy or they will benefit from or the other person is going to tell you something that's going to console you. It's possible, but it begins how following one
one smile to another smiling at the other person. And I remember I was reading a book once on How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. And one of the main things that he said was smile.
And I was thinking when you smile at people obviously people are going to be attracted towards you. People are going to pay attention to you they're going to get easily influenced but if you do it with the intention of following the sooner there's benefits in this journey Okay fine, but the main benefit is what a Muslim so you may have come Allah Allah will love you and as a result of that the creation of a lot is also going to love you Why a fella come denuvo come along have a photo Rahim and allies Forgiving and Merciful Why is this mentioned over here will love a photo Rahim.
Allah is Forgiving to to those who did not previously follow the Sunnah of the Prophet settlements.
And now when they will follow along with forgive them for the wrongs that they did before or for their having not followed the profit sort of answer.
To the use claimed, we love Allah or Allah loves us, what does Allah say? Prove your Claim, by following the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and following the profit or loss of the means.
In Akita as well that believe in what he has brought.
Up here Allah say, obey Allah, what was who and obey the messenger as well as the Euro is from far well I in from the word youth are and what does it mean to obey someone willingly notice, the other word was at a bar at a bar is to follow. And Athar is to obey. You follow someone, without they're telling you to do something. But you thought you obey someone, when they tell you to do something.
It is to follow an instruction, to accept a command.
And always ivara is done out of willingness, out of happiness, not as a burden.
It is on how out of willingness that a person willingly happily follows a command of the other. He fully accepts it, and he follows it. So Call of Duty or law say that you should obey Allah.
Who else should you obey what was so and also the messenger?
So doing it the power of the messenger is important. And doing ethos of the messenger is also important. Both of them have been commanded to us by Allah and what does Allah say over here of the aroma, obey Allah for it
Hello, then if the turn away for in Omaha lay your head will carefully and then Indeed Allah does not like those people who are caffeine.
Caffeine is a plural of caffeine who is caffeine one who does coffee? What type of coffee is this over here?
It depends on who, what the person is abandoning of the TBR and ITAR of the profits.
If a person does not do a T bar of the profit, then who is he? He's obviously not a believer, because he's not following the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Akita. He doesn't believe in the Quran. He doesn't believe in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So obviously, he is of those who are mentioned over here that lay your head with caffeine. Allah does not like those people who disbelieve. But if there is a person who is a believer who follows a prophet sort of autism interpreter, but in Farren encounter, what does he do? He doesn't follow him. Exactly. Or he doesn't follow him precisely. He leaves some major sunon or he ignores some, what does Allah say? In the
law, now you will caffeine. Those who do not obey align the messenger, those who don't follow the messenger. Allah does not like such people. Allah does not like them.
So you can claim all you want that you love Allah. But if you don't prove your love, Allah is not going to love you. You have to prove your love to win the love of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, there's a hadith that is mentioned in ohare that colloquium, he had a whole agenda. All of you are going to envision in lemon other except for the one who refused. The Companions asked Carlo, Waimea Bay rasulillah, who is it who refuses or messenger of Allah, Allah, men authority, the halogen, the one who obeys me, then he will enter gender woman or assignee funny for whatever. And whoever disobeys me that in fact, he has refused.
Then, in fact, he has refused.
Meaning a person who disobeys the command of the Prophet sort of
so called a three year law, her work was to obey Allah and the messenger.
Many times we say it's only important to obey Allah to follow the Quran and the Sunnah, it's unimportant, the Hadees you don't have to believe it, and you don't have to follow it. Many people say that. But we should look at all of the verses of the Quran. What does Allah say over here obey Allah and the messenger? Both are important.
And whoever turns away from either obeying Allah or obeying the messenger, and Allah does not like such a person.
Everybody does the devout the Prophet sallallahu wasallam at a different level. And what is it that determines that level? It's the love of Allah. The more you love Allah, the more you will follow the prophets of Allah.
Because if you think about it, once a person loves Allah, He is concerned about his alcohol. What is it going to refer to the book of Allah? What do I have to do? And to understand the book, Allah is going to look at the Sunnah of the Prophet said about us and what are the profits or losses from say, what did he do? What did he say? So, love Allah leads to following the sun.
And a person will follow the sun as much as he loves Allah.
So if a person follows the sun, what does that show that he loves Allah, the more he follows, the more he loves, the less he follows, the less he loves.
Remember, it is related. It is exactly the same.
You know, overload term into following the sun and you're following the sun determines your level.
And if we don't follow the Sunnah of the prophet or the artisan, if we don't do what he did, if we don't do what he liked, what he preferred, then how do we expect that we will be with him in general, or we will be in the same company as him.
So basically, an action that is approved by a law or an action that is approved by someone whom you love. Automatically, what are you going to do? You're going to do that action
The way of the Prophet was the way that Allah approved off. And if you truly love Allah, automatically, you're going to follow that.
For example, children in a kindergarten class, what do they do? If one child makes a card for the teacher and gives it and the teacher shows a lot of appreciation for the child immediately what do the other children do? Everybody does the same thing.
And sometimes they do the exact same thing. Why? To win the love of the teacher? Why? Because it's that action that was approved by the teacher.
So Allah soprano darlin, look at the kindness of Allah, that Allah has shown to us through a human being, what is it that he loves? What way is it that he loves, so that we can follow that we can do that and we can gain his love?
This is the favela will often be very bad Allah is most affectionate towards the servants.
for example, you eat sitting on a chair at a dining table. Is it contrary to the deen? Is it it's not. But the profits are about Islam. So now was what to sit on the floor and eat. If you do that, it's much closer to the sun. And if you will do that, it will show more love that you have for our last panel. But if you are sitting at the dining table and eating, I mean there is no sin in that. As long as it's not against me. As long as it does not contradict the teachings of the deen, it's permissible. But basically what this is telling us is, the more you love Allah, the more you will follow the Prophet of Allah.
So basically, the means should not become the goal, that many times in following the prophets or about Islam in loving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam people, they exceed limits, and they ignore that they were actually following him so that they could get the love of Allah.
So the means should not become the goal.
When it comes to winning the love of a particular person, we try so hard, we experiment so many things. We make mistakes, we make so many errors. We make a fool of ourselves. But getting the love of Allah subhanaw taala so merciful that he has himself told us as to what we should do.
