Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
Let's continue our lesson
that Allah says yeah you are Latina, Amano altior Lucha we're all clear of us who are you who have believed obey Allah and obey the messenger. Obey Allah and obey the messenger.
Now you and Edina Imani are being addressed Why?
Because this is something that is a requirement of email. If you're truly believers, then you must do this what? obey Allah and also obey the messenger.
Who else should you obey?
What will remain calm?

Only Hulu, what does it mean possessors it's the plural of zoo, zoo, South Dakota.
Zoo follow? The Florida zoo is
the possessors of Alabama and what does that mean? It means affair it also means command. Over here under means, authority command meaning those who are in command those who have authority.
Now, what does that mean by
Who are they?
First of all, it has been said that what are those who command? This? Who ordered justice? who tell about that which is right? They have the unbelief and they give the so Who are they?
There are limit the scholars those who stayed to help those who tell other people about the help

similarly, the manager, the boss, every area, everything has some in charge. You go to a store, there is somebody who has some authority. You go to an institute there is somebody who has an authority, you enroll in a class there is someone who has authority. So who is
the person in authority

For internets artificial in then if you dispute concerning anything, then as Artyom is from the newsletters known, say, NASA,
what does NASA mean literally to pull and then Azur is to pull to oneself it is when two or more people are pulling something to themselves. So just imagine something like a tug of war, what is happening, both the parties are pulling the rope towards themselves.
So the nazzer is an argument, a fight, a dispute, in which both the parties are bullying the help to themselves.
So fake internet is artificial in that if you differ, if you have a dispute concerning anything. And then as Eric Thomas Lauren over here, who disclosed refer to all of the believers, and all of the believers includes who that will be number as well.
So sometimes what happens, the leader, he gives you the command, and you follow, and sometimes the leader gives you a command, and you disagree.
So in this occasion of disagreement, what should you do? What is the loss of punctuality that don't listen to them, and leave the matter as it is create a rift, create a split? If you differ with someone, go create your own machine, go build your own machine, go make your own organization? Is that what we're being told no.

So send it back mean refer the matter do to align the messenger?
How will you refer the matter to a loss of time?
If you think of it, when do you meet Allah after that, so at that time, it's pointless. To do it alone means refer to the Quran. Refer to the guidance of Allah refer to Allah as book. What was the rule and the messenger? How will you take the matrix
while the prophet SAW a lot of someone was alive, what did that mean? That you literally take the matter to him and after him after his death, refer to his son
refer to what he has said
in content to me when I believe he will do me a favor, if you believe in Allah, and the last day, meaning if you really believe in a line, the last thing you must do this must do what?

What decision taking the matter to align the messenger for solution.
So what do we learn from this? Ayah?
So first of all, we learn about the obligation of obeying Allah and His Messenger
because many times people say the profits or losses and was only a human being, when I follow the Quran, I believe in the Quran and that's enough. No, what does Allah say, out there Allah, what Massoud obey Allah and the messenger?
And at the time of the nazzer, what should you do take the matter to who to Allah and the messenger?
So, first of all, it shows us the obligation of obeying both Allah and His messenger. How unconditionally?
What does it mean by this unconditionally, being in every matter,
in every matter, no matter what the command is, we have to follow.
Even if their command goes against our desires and wishes, what should be our behavior, what should be our reaction, so merona will alternate
number one, a group of people are working together, then they're always going to be some rules. They're going to have some kind of methodology that this is what we're going to do, this is what we're not going to do. So, how should that methodology be? What should it be according to according to the teachings of Allah as well as the messenger? They should be according to the Quran and Sunnah.
Like for example, have you come here to study now, our main thing is that we're going to teach you a call on this is the Alamo Quran.
Now you're coming here to study what is the methodology of the Quran and Sunnah that you have to pray Salah on time, for example.
And one thing is that we would say that no, you're here from nine to three o'clock and too bad. We're not going to give you any break for Salah. Your problem.
Is this authority to align the messenger? No, we will be doing something very good. But this is not evolved to align the messenger
similarity when a couple is getting married, when people are making a house when people are getting a house when they're buying a house when they're setting up a house when they're doing different things, in everything, there is some methodology that you apply that you follow. That methodology should be according to the Quran and Sunnah.
This is the first thing that we learned from this AI and that obedience to Allah and the messenger should be unconditional. meaning you're not going to say, if it suits me, then I will do it. And if it doesn't suit me, I'm not going to do it. No, it has to be unconditional. whether I like it or not, up to your law was whistle.
And secondly, we also learn about the reputation of those people who reject us on that we have to follow this on.
Thirdly, we learn about the obligation of obeying the leader obeying the leader.
Because in order for anything to function properly, or do you need
a leader and in charge, which is why does a habit even if two people traveled together, even if two people were appointed at something, one was always making charge?
Three people, four people more definitely there's a leader. So when people are working together, first of all, their methodology should be according to the Quran and Sunnah. Secondly, there must be a leader. And that leader is not just a leader who is just you can say a puppet. But rather that leader is someone who is obeyed.
There has to be some organizational structure that everybody should know, this is my leader, this is the one I'm supposed to report to. And this is the one I'm supposed to assign the task to. There should be some organizational structure, because if there is no organizational structure, then what's going to happen, things are going to be haphazard.
Nobody's going to know what to do. Nobody's going to take charge and everything is going to fall apart. So somebody has to be the leader. At every occasion, in every situation, there must be a leader.
And that leader must be obeyed.
Remember that the amid the Buddha, when he gives a command, when he gives an instruction, it could be one of the three types.
First of all, it is what Allah Subhana Allah has commanded as well.
Like, for example, Allah has commanded us that we must praise Allah saved him, he says, praise Allah. Now people say no, it's my business. Is that what people should say? It's my matter. It's my personal affair between me and my Rob, don't tell me. No. If the need is telling you about something that Allah has commanded, then we must follow it becomes more important for us to follow because if Allah subhanaw taala was commanding us, and the Amina is also commanding us.
Secondly, the command could be something that almost panatela has forbidden. It could be something that Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden. For example, the image says, don't pray, you're not allowed to pray here. What are you gonna do?
Allah says, Allah and the messenger. And so I'm going to obey the command of my leader, and I'm not going to pray, is that what you're going to do? No. When there is a conflict between the command of Allah and the command of the amid what are you supposed to do? obey the command of a law?
Because there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator.
Now, thirdly, it could be a command that Allah has neither commanded nor forbidden
to understand. It could be a command that Allah has neither commanded nor forbidden, meaning you can't find any evidence for that in the Quran.
You can't find evidence for that in the Sunnah. So in that case, what should you do?
It's your choice. No, it's not your choice. You have to listen to the leader.
So for example, when you come here, who's your leader? You're in charge this making more relevant. So when she tells you something, what are you going to do?
not listen to her. She's always telling. She's always saying one thing or the other? No, we have to listen to her. Whether we like it or we don't. Why? Because she's our leader. She's our in charge. And we have acknowledged her as our leader, so we must listen to her.
And sometimes we come up with the most lame excuses. Like for example, when it comes to doing this lesson seven times we say, you've given this in a manner to us and it's not in the Quran anywhere. It's not in the sun anywhere, so you're not obligated to do it. No, if your leader has told you what does it mean? Part of obedience to Allah is obeying the leader.
Similarly, if at a particular time you're expected to be in the classroom, and your leader is telling you you should be in the classroom. What are you supposed to do?
Ask her for the lead.
Where is it in the Quran? Where is it in the Sunnah? Is that what we should do? No.
Similarly, if we have been told and we have to attend a particular class, a particular group at a particular place at a specific time, what should we do? Listen to the in charge, listen to the leader. So Altair, Allah, what was sold as well as it will complement.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the Muslim is required to hear and obey. The Muslim is required to hear and obey in that which he likes and dislikes. So yes, it could be something that we live in, it could be something that we don't like, I don't want to go to class. I'm too tired. I can't recite. I can't go to that class right now. I want to sit in the cafeteria, and sitting in class all day. I don't like it.
What are the prophets
the Muslim is required to hear and obey in that which he likes and dislikes, unless he was commanded to sin. When he is commanded with sin, then there is no hearing or being
then you're not going to listen to her in charge, then you're not going to listen to your leader. When the command is off,
then you're not going to visit.
Are the Dalai Lama said, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam sent a troop under the command of a man from
when they left the leader from the inside? He became angry with them for some reason.
The leader became angry with those who were under him. And he said to them has not the Messenger of Allah commanded you to obey me? They said, Yes. He said, collect some wood. And then he started a fire with the wood, saying, I commend you to enter the fire.
The people almost entered the fire. But a young man among them said, you only ran away from the fire to Allah's Messenger. I mean, you believed in order to be saved from the fire of hell. Right? That's why you went to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So how can we rush into this fire? Therefore do not rush until you go back to Allah's Messenger? And if he commands you to enter it, then entered.
When they went back to Allah's Messenger, they told him what had happened. And the messenger sort of all the sudden said, had you entered it, you would never have departed from it?
Had you entered it, you would never have departed from it. Why?
Because killing yourself is something that is forbidden. So if the leader is telling you to do something that is sinful, you're not going to listen. And then you can't put the blame on the leader either.
Obedience is only in righteousness.
Let's say we are at school, not an assignment. Otherwise, we're there. And it's time to pray. We don't get up and pray.
Why? Because let's say the class is going on. The professor is there I can't leave. And at the end, we say it's not my fault. It's the professor's fault. It's the school's fault. It's the university's fault. No, you cannot blame them. You are still going to get the same Why? Because Allah story to obey the leader. Yes, however, it should only be in my route. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a methodical maruf obedience is only in righteousness. So if they tell you to disobey Allah, if they tell you to do something that is sinful, you're not going to obey them.
And if you do obey them, then whose fault is it?
Whose fault is it?
Your fault, it's your fault.
And remember that obedience to the will is not just with regards to religious matters.
Like for example, we have a religious leader, let's say the Imam in Salah.
So obedient says that when the Imam says the queen, then you follow him.
Similarly, when you come here to an Islamic Institute, there is a leader okay? This is your obeying the leader in what? In a religious affair.
But obedience to the leader is not just in religious matters, but it applies to all matters as long as they don't contradict the law, the laws.
So for example, if you're driving, you say you don't have to follow the rules because it's not mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah.
Some people actually say that, really, I've heard with my own ears. People say that we're only supposed to obey a lion is messenger. If they're breaking a traffic rule, this is what they say. But this is also going against what? against the command of Allah Subhana Allah because Allah has commanded you that you must follow the leader. If the leader has said that this is what you are supposed to do when driving and this is what you're not supposed to do when driving. These are the rules and you're supposed to follow them. So obedience to the AMA is not just in religious affairs, but it is also in worldly affairs as long as they don't contradict the law of Allah. Remember that.
As long as the worldly affairs also do not contradict the law of law.
So for example, traffic laws, similarly attending class during the lesson seven times, not skipping the groups, not changing the setting of the furniture, filling in the gaps. Sometimes I will tell you so many times come forward, come forward there gaps over here. Why don't we come forward? Why? What is stopping us? Maybe we're thinking that literacy, it's okay. Who is she to say that to me?
I have my freedom. I can sit wherever I want. But what is the law said
that obey will honor as well, that when your teacher tells you when the class in charge tells you in the course in charge tells you about something and you must do it. Similarly at your home, if your mother tells you something, first of all, your son to the parents means that we must listen to them. And because they are the in charge, they're the leaders. Therefore, we must also listen to them.
So obedience to the leader is not just in religious affairs, but it is also in worldly affairs.
We also learn from desire that obeying the messenger and obeying the law is part of obeying of
obeying the messenger, and obeying, amorous what part of a being Allah because Allah has commanded.
Allah has commanded us to obey the messenger, Allah has commanded us to obey the rule. And so what does it mean that if we obey them, we are being who who are we obeying, almost
we also learn from this ayah about Allah subhanaw taala, his love for organization, that how much Allah loves organization. We learned earlier, in sort of Baccarat that other early Mako lunasin, mashrabiya. Every group of people knew about their mushroom,
So similarly, in everything that we do, there must be organization don't do things haphazardly. Because if we do things haphazardly, what happens? First of all, I think it's done. Secondly, there's a huge chaos. And thirdly, we're not able to achieve more. But when we do something in an organized fashion, then what happens? We're able to achieve more results.
Also, we learned from this ayah that if there are any differences, if there are any differences, which are obviously inevitable, when people are together, they're always going to be differences, then everyone should consult what the Quran and
and we should find the solution from where, from the Quran and Sunnah. And upon finding the solution, what should we do? stay fixed in our opinion? No. What should we do? submit to what Allah has said, submit to what the prophet sallallahu Sallam has said, and we should leave our opinion, which is why we say to the scholars of the past the image, what did they say?
That if you find a hadith that contradicts my statement, then throw my statement away, throw it away, leave it discard it.
And what do we do? We hold on to their statement, and we leave the club.
So in any difference of opinion, what should we do consult the Quran and Sunnah. And upon finding the solution, we should leave our opinions.
Instead of the Shura, I number 10, one off the left to feed him and train him for hawkmoon in a law, and in anything over which you disagree, its ruling is to be referred to a loss.
We also don't have this idea that everything of faith, everything that has some height in it, it has been informed to us by Allah and His messenger.
Where do we learn this from? Because over here a lie saying for internet certain fishy info do in a lot of a suit.
If there's any difference of opinion, who should you refer to align the messenger?
So this means that a lot of setting us to refer to a line the messenger Why? Because the solution is there. Now if there was no solution, would Allah tell us to refer to that? No.
So this tells us that anything that is of benefit to us, anything that is of benefit to us, Allah subhanaw taala has informed us about it.
So there is no better and there's no better Hasina. Some people say, it's a good innovation, no, there is nothing like that.
We also learn from this idea that of the requirements of a man is that a person obeys Allah, because Allah says in contented meaning of the requirements of a man is that a person obeys a law, that a person obeys a messenger that a person obeys,
and it matters of dispute. A person refers the first to who Allah and His messenger.
We also see that a person who turns to a line a messenger for guidance for a decision for a solution, then he will be saved from trouble and he will be directed to the correct path. Why? Because how does the AI and velyka hiren will accelerate
We know what does it show?
That if you refer the matter to align the messenger for solution, then what's going to happen?
You're going to be saved from difficulty and you're going to be guided to the correct way. What did we learn early in sort of bacara iO 256 for maniac for the TA What were you mean BelAir forgot his thumb sokoban, or what it was,
whoever does cover of the hood and believes in Allah, then, in fact, he has held on to the handhold that is trustworthy, lenfest formula that will not break at all.
Now, sometimes, there are some issues in which there are differences of opinion.
And on one side, they're presenting their proofs from the Quran and Sunnah. And on the other side, they're presenting their proof in the Quran and so on.
What should we do?
First of all, remember that many of these issues, there's always a stronger than
always, why is it more strong because of some evidence.
So if you see an evidence that is much stronger than go for that
similarity, sometimes what happens is that both the evidences are there. And sometimes, those two opinions, they're not contradicting, but rather they show you can say the capacity or the WUSA have already that in one situation, one is more applicable. And another situation, the other option is more applicable, it is more relevant. So it shows it was our duty.
And thirdly, there may be differences. But whatever your heart is fixed upon, meaning whatever you find more strong,
whatever you think is more correct, than do that.
Because remember that there are differences of many, there are many ways of doing something, what do you choose? What do you find to be best for yourself? Correct?
Like, for example, when you go to the marketplace, there are so many types of food, what do you choose for yourself,
the one that you find is best for you, the one that you find is most suitable for you. So select that and then stick to that. Don't do one thing today and another thing tomorrow,
but rather, whatever you find is best for you. Then choose that for yourself and remain firm upon that.
If you think of it, when do differences arise between people,
when everybody thinks that their boss and they can do whatever they want? This is why the leader has been appointed and the leader when he tells you to do something, what is your responsibility obey? But if you differ with them, why because they say something is the dean and you said no it thought of the dean or they say this is how you should do it because it's a part of the you say no, this is not part of the demon where should you decide from? From the Quran and Sunnah.
So, first of all, the chances of differences have been eliminated, how, by the appointment of the auditor.
And yet despite that, if there are differences, then you solve them from the clients
will listen to the recitation of these if it will continue.
do more he wants
