lesson number 57 sort of Nyssa ar 26 to 35
you need to know who you by ginetta comb where they are concerned and alladhina mencoba leikam why a tuba aleikum wa Allahu Allah when Hakeem
Allah wants to make clear to you the lawful from the unlawful and guide you to the good practices of those before you, and to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and wise
you really do is from the root letters of law well, that your order,
and irata is intention, the reason or the objective that a person wishes to attain by doing something, the reason behind an action.
Over here we see that Allah subhanaw taala, has given several comments from the beginning of the sutra with regards to the property of the orphans with regards to giving them out of the women with regards to inheritance with regards to marriage, all of these commands and also panatela has given What's the reason? What's the purpose? Why has he given all of these commands? or Why are these commands the way they are?
Like, for instance, if the permission to marry slave women has been given, or if a man has been allowed to marry up to four wives. Why? Why is this permission given? Why are these allowances given? And where the Mohamed had been prohibited? Why have they been prohibited?
The reason is that you read Allahu Allah wishes Allah intense, Li Beijing and
that he clarifies to
you by Hina is from the roof veterus bad yeah, nude from the word ban.
And what does ban mean to clarify something, and bionis First of all, lovely meaning to explain a word or to say a word clearly.
And secondly, it is Martin UI, which is to explain the meaning. So lovely, it's like to pronounce the word to state the word to state the sentence the state of clause very clearly, and marena ways to explain the meaning of that as well.
So over here, what does Allah say that you read, Allahu Li by Unicom and lamb over here gives the meaning of that, that allows us to clarify for you
clarify what do you
what is lawful, what is unlawful? The commands, the outcome, the laws of your religion, and what is in your best interest. And if you look at it the way that all of these commands have been mentioned, they were mentioned in so many different ways, like for instance, just a command with regards to the Maha at one place, it has been called satoko. At another place, it has been called adjust.
It has also been called Fariba. What does it show? ban through words and also by Andrew marner.
So Allah wishes to make clear to you what is Hillel what is what are the laws of your religion, the laws that are in your best interest,
all of the, all of the shadow air he wishes to clarify to you,
were there any events to guide you, and you know that he dies, first of all, get shed. And secondly, they'll feel so wishes to guide you to what sunon aladeen I mean, publikum the ways of those people who were before you, the word sunnen is authoritative sooner. And so now is practice, the norm is a customary practice a tradition of doing something.
And generally the word son is used for an approved way, generally accepted way a preferred way, a way that is liked.
So he wishes to guide you to the sooner meaning to the good ways to the correct ways the good practices to the good norms, or who alidium in public one of those people before you
alladhina metacognition refers to the prophets and the messengers and the other righteous people who came before you.
What kind of actions do they do? What norms what practices, what traditions did they have?
The ones that Allah Subhana Allah has commanded you are
the commands that Allah Subhana Allah has given what are they similar to the center of those people before you.
So over here, law says that you need the level liuba you know where they are.
First of all, he wishes to clarify to
And secondly, he wishes to guide you.
So he intends to guide you to what? To his obedience just as he guided the people before you. Just as he guided the prophets and their followers before you, he gave them laws, and he is also giving you laws. He gave them commands and prohibitions. And similarly, he's also giving you the same. They may differ slightly, but he's also guiding you just as he guided those people before you.
Were diaco sooner ladymum and COVID eco were toolbar Aleykum. And he wishes to turn in mercy Do you
remember that there were Toba? when it's used for a loss of data? What does it mean? First of all, the Toba of Allah before the Toba of the slave,
which is when Allah subhanaw taala turns in mercy to a slave and grandson Butterfield to repent.
And this could be, for instance, by giving the slave knowledge. A person doesn't know what is right what is wrong. Allah turns and mercy to that person. And Allah gives him knowledge. This is right, this is wrong. Isn't that a big Mercy of Allah? Of course it is.
So the first is they want to Allah during the mercy to the slave before the slave actually repents. And the second Toba of last principle is that after the slave does Toba then Allah accepts the repentance, which is why your toolbar Alaykum is, first of all returns in mercy. And secondly, he accepts repentance.
Over here, we are to violate them give us a sense of that he wishes to turn in mercy to you How? By giving you knowledge by guiding you.
Because if you didn't know, what was right, what was wrong? And if you did actions, if you did those wrong things, what would be the result? You would suffer? You yourself would suffer?
Like, for instance, the commands of inheritance have been given?
What was the tradition before Islam? What was the culture that our belief would come and take everything? Or the motive and he would come and take everything? Or the women, they were completely deprived? What happened with the orphans, their wealth was taken unjustly. So on a Lost Planet, Allah educated the people through by and through hidayah. What is this a loss of director earning in mercy to the people telling them what is right what is wrong, so that they don't suffer so that other people don't suffer? Where to violate them, and he turns in mercy to you will love where I live, and Hakeem and Allah is Knowing, and he's also wise. So because Allah subhanaw taala has
complete knowledge. And he also is the one who has most wisdom. Therefore, it is his right to guide us. It is his right, to educate us, to teach us to instruct us because he is Eileen and he's hacking.
One is that we listen to people who don't have complete in and who don't even have a clue what's going to happen if we follow them, what's going to happen if we obey them, we are going to suffer, other people are going to suffer.
And the other is that we follow Allah Aleem, and and Hakeem, the one who has most knowledge and the one who is most wise, are we going to benefit from those comments? Of course.
So a lower and even Hakeem, the one who has the most knowledge, the most wisdom, it is his right to make arrangements for our guidance. It is his right to teach us to tell us because we don't know, we don't have wisdom.
We see that some people despite all the commands being clear, because over here less has begun and he wishes to clarify to you and the commands have been stated very clearly. different words have been used for one concept, or for instance, with regard to the wealth of the orphans, the property of the orphans, so many commands were given deaths, the orphan, those people who consume the wealth of the orphan, they will eat fire. So all the commands of Allah subhanaw taala are very clear, crystal clear. But despite that, what do some people say? I don't get it. I don't understand.
If you look at them, how long it relisted one by one by one. All of them are mentioned one after the other. But there's still some people who say this is not clear. We don't understand or they object to the commands of Allah subhanaw taala.
What's the reason? What's the reason why did they do that? Or what's the reason for not understanding the commands of not finding them clear.
One is that some people that just look at the surface they just look at the apparent
And they don't reflect on the wisdom The reason behind the command. For instance, right in the beginning, we learned about the permissibility of married for women, all of a sudden, oh my god, just the surface, how can a man be just he can ever be just? This is not fair, this is biased. This is unfair.
So people object. Why? Because they're only looking at the surface. They don't reflect on the reason behind the command on the wisdom behind the command.
Similarly, sometimes people object why because of lack of knowledge. Like for instance, slavery. Over here, we learned that slavery is permissible as long as the slaves are given the rights and we know about all that comes with having a slave. Now a person might say that slavery is something that is backward or something that is barbaric into something that is not right, it is against human rights. But the other is that you look at the situation, the prisoners of war, who are coming in? Are you just going to let them rot in the prisons?
Are you just going to let the soldiers treat them however they want? Is that fair? No, decide about them.
This is what our religion tells us. So should you just leave them in the streets to roam around and to fend for themselves? No, provide them a house. And then if you wish to marry them. So sometimes, people object because of lack of knowledge as well. They don't have the whole picture in mind, which is why they reject which is why they object
seminary sometimes it is, because the intention of the person is not correct, He is studying or he is learning about the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. He is reading the Quran or he's researching about the commands, why? To take a lesson to improve his life to improve in his or better in his thora know, the intention is incorrect. It is some other intention, some other objective, he is biased already.
Similarly, sometimes people just don't want to learn. They were very careless attitude. They're very carefree attitude. Right? For instance, all of us must be fully aware of concepts. For instance, why for the gummies allowed or why in particular, slavery is allowed. Similarly, the law of inheritance, we must be aware of them.
But what is our attitude?
Okay, doesn't affect me, doesn't bother me. And then when it does, or maybe it affects your friends, maybe it affects your acquaintances? That shouldn't you be aware.
So sometimes we're very negligent towards the commands of Allah. Whereas Allah has already clarified the comments. What is our job? Allah has clarified, we have to try to understand, we have to apply them we have to follow them in any way. But it's in our benefit if we try to understand them, because it will be easier for us to accept and follow.
Well, all you need to adhere to bear Aleikum and Allah wants to accept your repentance. Again, your toolbar leikam has been mentioned. Why? First of all, for emphasis.
And secondly, remember, your toolbar has two meanings. The first is return and mercy and the second is to accept repentance. In the previous if we take the meaning of that he wishes turn in mercy, it's more relevant. Why? Because he died as mentioned by Anna's mentioned. So when Allah is educating you and allies teaching you and allies informing you he's turning in mercy towards you.
And then once you have corrected yourself, once you have reformed your ways, then allies going to accept your repentance. will love who you need to endure to barnicle
will you either Ludhiana yet aviana sherawat. And those people who follow their desires, what is their intention? What is their motive? And tamiu made in Lima, the to digress into a great deviation. who those people who follow their desires, a shout out is a plural of shower. And shower is a desire
which desire human or you can say natural desires, carnal desires, like for example, the desire to eat the desire to drink, the desire to marry. All of these are what human desires. So those people who follow desires, what does it mean? That instead of following the commands of Allah, what do they follow? Shahada.
They're living a life, not to obey Allah subhanaw taala. Not to do or better, but just to fulfill their desires.
Their objective, their goal is to fulfill their desires. Their objective is not from uncertainty, harmony, not what we'll do, he'll agenda difficult affairs. That's not their objective. That's not their goal. Their goal is just to do what they want to do.
And that no one should stop them. There should be no restrictions, no limitations. If I want to eat the property of the orphan. I should if
If I don't want to give my wealth to my children, I don't want to, if I don't want to restrict myself to four wise, I don't want to. So, those people who wish to follow their desires, for instance today, a person who does not wish to take his spouse or to take his partner seriously does not want to take responsibility, what does he want to he does not want to get married to them, rather he just wants to enjoy the present.
So, those people who follow their desires pursue their desires are only objective is to fulfill their desires not to have a loss of data, what do they want, that you should also deviate?
That you are believer should also deviate? Which is why what happens every now and then they will come up and they will ask, why does your religion say this? Why is this allowed in your religion? Why is this command given in your religion? This is why they come and object. What does this teach us? That as a believer, as Muslims, our purpose in life is not just to fulfill our desires, our purpose in life is what? to avail most panatela to worship Allah subhanaw taala because Hello, call moto will Hayato Leah loco, a ucommerce and Rama he has not created life and that's that we may enjoy. No, this life is not for enjoyment. This life is not for pleasure. Yes, it is the mercy of
Allah, that through marriage through wealth, a person does get pleasure, he does get enjoyment. But that is not the objective. That's not the goal. That's not the reason why we were created. We will create it for a much higher purpose that we are here for a test. And later on in the afternoon, we will be rewarded.
But those people who have limited vision, who think that this life is about everything, yet to be your own shadow, they want that you should also deviate
and Tamino Malan azima tomatoes from the room fetters Mimi, Allah
and Melanie amido is too inclined it is to move on to one side from the middle way that you're going straight. And all of a sudden male is to incline onto one side to bend onto one side to deviate that a person is moderate. A person is on the correct way. He is on the balanced way. He is in the middle. He is going on the straight path. And what happens. He goes on to an extreme. He bends onto one side.
This is what male is. So they want that you Camilo Malan or Lima, meaning that you incline away from the Hulk,
by following these commands of Allah, what are you doing? You're going on the straight but so often Latina and I'm calling him a Latina, and I'm calling him soon an aluminum and copper nickel.
But what do they want? Do they want you to go on the straight path? No, they want you to deviate from it to me to Milan or Lima and this deviation that they want for you is made in our Lima, a great deviation, a terrible deviation. How? By transgressing what is right by committing what has been forbidden.
And that you go extremely far away in your misguidance. How, by following your desires as well.
antonito maiden alima
so what do we learn from these two is
that all of the commands that are lost pantalla has given are based on what is there in and his Heckman
and his inner is really welcoming Elon Musk Chairman, Mohit.
It's all encompassing. It encompasses everything within the heavens and the earth, it is not limited to the past or the present or the future. There is nothing in the heavens and the earth that is hidden from a loss of data that is unknown to Allah.
His knowledge is that that does not suffer from ignorance, that was not preceded by ignorance. It does not suffer from forgetfulness from any mistake. So if he is telling you something, isn't that going to be very best for you?
So if he is telling you something, and he is arleen, and whatever that he's commanding you is also based on his hikma in your best interest, then what does it show? That we must follow the commands of Allah soprano.
And on the other hand, there are some people who do not wish to follow the commands of Allah.
And what do they do? They follow their desires. And what is their goal that just as they follow their desires, you should also follow your desires.
Because then what happens if you don't follow your desires, it makes them appear as bad.
If one person is following the rules, and the other person is not following the rules, who looks bad, the one who's not following the rules, so what do they want? that the other person should also
not follow the rules where you need to lead in a TV owner shower and tummy loo Milan as Lima.
Which is why sometimes they come up and they object. Sometimes they mock. Sometimes they make fun.
What should you do?
know that Allah is Arlene and hecke.
If you yourself don't understand what should you know? Allah is even hacking. My knowledge is limited. My understanding is limited. Allah knows about what he has commanded. And it's based on his wisdom. It is for my best benefit.
You read Allahu Allah once and you have FIFA and come to light and for you your difficulties?
Well, holy cow, insane Tarifa and mankind was created weak. The human being was created very if
you read the law who another reason? What is it that Allah subhanaw taala intense? Do you have a fine comb you have FIFA is from the petrous hoffa. And what is the thief mean, to lighten a burden, to ease a burden, either all of it, or some of it by for instance, somebody who's carrying something very heavy, either you come and take the whole thing off of their back or you take some of it, this is what the thief is. So you need a low and you have a Funko, that he lightens the burden for you
lightens the burden of what, first of all, omit the commands that He has given.
And secondly, then away the prohibitions that He has given.
Meaning there are such commands, there are such prohibitions that you can handle that you can do.
And if you were not given those commands, or if those prohibitions were not given to you, then life will be very difficult for you.
You would create difficulties for yourself and also for others around you.
And also, if you look at it, the rules before us, the laws that were given before us, they were difficult, they were very burdensome, they were extremely strict.
But the commands that are less apparent Allah gave to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they have the faith in them, they have flexibility, they have ease in them.
And if Allah wishes, he could have burdened us as well with the command that He has given us, they are possible for us to handle for instance, when it comes to the commands of purification that we obtaining purity what is the ruling for Salah you have to do will do okay. But how is the last panel tighter than
that if you're unable to do you can't find water or you're sick, what should you do?
Similarly, Salah, you have to stand up and praying but if you cannot then sit down if you cannot like them, if you cannot move through your eyes through gestures.
Similarly fasting, if a person cannot fast, then he can make up later, he can get video.
Similarly, we learned that if a person cannot marry a free woman who should remain a slave woman
I mean yes, the prohibition has been given don't commit Zina, lotta horrible Zina, but at the same time an alternate has been given, if you cannot marry a free woman marry a slave woman. So all of these commands all of these prohibitions that are lost pines, Allah has given There are also some allowances in them. Why? Because now you can live Allahu nevsun illa Allah does not overburden us all, except with what is within its capacity.
Similarly, we learn certain belcarra 85 you read a lot will be coming up, well, are you ready to be cooler so Allah intense for you ease and does not intend for you hardship.
So, if Allah has given these commands to us, yes, there may be some difficulty there may be some hardship, but remember, that there is more ease there is more use
which is why all the women are headed except for the moment there is some difficulty but at the same time there is more ease. You need a law of equal user well I really do Coronavirus.
Similarly we are in sort of hedge is 78 woman and a confidant even have Raj and Allah has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty.
Meaning the religion is easy. You can follow it. The rabbits are allowed to set up set very stupid honey philia to some Howdy. I was sent with the easy hanafy way. Easy way the Hanafi meaning beware Ibrahim are listening.
So we see that where there are restrictions. There are also allowances
This is the,
the commands that Allah Subhana Allah has given, they have the thief in the prohibitions that Allah Subhana Allah has given there's all to the faith in them. And unless Panthera likes it, if a slave takes benefit from the allowance that Allah has given,
Allah likes, well what happened inside Eldar effect and the human being was created very safe, inside and inside over here in a singular, but remember inside can also be used for the humankind, the human race.
So the human being, or mankind has been created life, meaning if people if human beings were given such commands, that did not have the faith in them, could they handle them? No, they couldn't. So Allah subhanaw taala is arleen he knows about the weakness of the human being, he knows about what is the weakness of the human being, and based on that He has given the comments based on that He has given the prohibitions, and if you look at it, he is the Holic who knows human beings more than him, only ally knows.
So we're Haleakala inside of the river. Therefore, he has given such commands that a human being can actually observe
as well their influence was from the roof at his blood are in fact life. And life is used for weakness. And generally it is used for weakness of the body, but it also applies to other weaknesses.
So how is the human being created weak,
how has a human being been created weak,
first of all, the human being is inherently weak, in his nature, he is weak. Why? Because what is the human being created from Mary maheen the first human being was created from dust, but the rest of the human beings were created from that from water liquid that is money that is despicable. That is filthy.
So, human being is created with meaning inherently, the nature of the human being is of weakness.
And this reflects in different ways,
that first of all, in determination in us
that if a person is overcome by desires, what happens he falls, he gives up, especially for men, what is his biggest weakness, women, otherwise men are very strong, very bold, very rough, very tough. Physically, they may be very strong, even in their speech, they may be very harsh for the woman whom they love, what happens to them in front of them, they just melt, they cannot stand their ground anymore.
So, human being has been created weak, meaning inherently he is weak, and this reflects in the weakness of his arm in the weakness of his determination when he's overpowered by desires and temptations.
Similarly, a human being has also been created weak in all the other aspects such as, such as knowledge, a person can try to gain all the knowledge can he what happens to people, they go to school, one year after the other after the other, or they come here to start the course to start one, just second, just they're just fourth just fixtures, and when they're questioned about what happened in the first just they've forgotten
right? Or at least they make a mistake in that Mashallah.
So, the human being has been created weak it is in similarly in his body, in his system, in physical ability, a person is weak, in his resistance, a person cannot handle cold, he cannot handle too much heat. Similarly, people cannot handle too much happiness too much grief.
So, what are called internal body fat, and because Allah knows, that the human being is Larry, therefore, he has given such commands that people are able to observe.
And this is the reason why the allowances have been given in this sutra, that we have learned, such as the allowance of marrying more than one wife, or having slave women or marrying asleep women. Why? Because then you can even question them income, you cannot handle it. Therefore, Allah knows and he has allowed you.
So, what do we learn from this is that the commands that Allah subhanaw taala has given, all of them are to meet certain objectives.
If you notice, you read the law, you read the law, UT the law, what does it show that there is a reason behind giving these commands. There's some wisdom behind giving these commands.
So, if there is a command that we
Learn off or there is a prohibition that we learn off. And it doesn't make sense to us. We think that this is incorrect. What should we know?
That there's some objective? There's some boxset.
And as I mentioned to you earlier, the mocassin of the [???]tier.
What are they,
the production of life, the protection of lineage, the protection of wealth, the protection of Dean the production of apple.
So, all of these commands are loss of data has given, they all need some objective.
Similarly, from this ayah, we learned that a loss of data, no knows about what is in the hearts of people.
When you need to lead either on your TV or on a show with Allah knows what is in the heart of the person. why he's objective, why he does not like the command. Why? Because he's yet to be on the show. And they're following the desires. And from these ayat, we also learned that we should be cautious of those people who follow their desires.
The person who does not follow the commands of Allah, what is he doing?
What is he doing? He's following his desires.
So we should be cautious and alert, because many times we get influenced by them. But remember that their Alinea Taverna show up and my Rob, he is Ireland, he is much better knowing he has more knowledge.
Basically, we see that over here last month, it says that political incentive there. So a person should realize this weakness, acknowledge this weakness, realize the fact that he has limited capabilities, limited abilities, limited knowledge, limited understanding, and thus, trust a loss of time.
At the end of the day, what should you think? I don't know, I don't know much. I don't know everything. So if Ally's telling me, I should trust him.
We also learn from these I had about the fact that all the commands that Allah Subhana Allah has given us they're realistic, and they're practical.
So never think that it's impossible to follow one of the commands of Allah,
and everything like that.
These many sources, especially if you have a lot of commands, when we read something like this, something too difficult, there's something I can not do.
But we see that all of these commands, they are realistic, they're practical, because Allah knows that insign is bereave
Li kalif, Allahu nevsun illa was Aha.
So whatever Allah Subhana Allah has given, it is practical, it is realistic, Allah has already created much easier for us.
And we also learned that we are encouraged to accept and benefit from the allowances that are lost and that it has given up too low and you have
this is rather than benefit from that
you ready to
Look at the mercy of Allah.
He didn't have to tell us as to why he's giving us these commands. But isn't it His mercy, that after giving us the commands, he's also mentally preparing us that this is the reason why this is the reason why this is the objective. This is the goal. And it makes it easier for us to accept.
So we see the well wishing of Allah subhanaw taala that how he says you read you read he wants benefit for us. He wants good for us. The repetition of judo and the repetition of YouTube, that he's ready to accept your repentance. He is turning adversity showing his mercy which is why he's telling you about this. All of the commands that he is given are in your best interest.
