So he should fight free civilian law in the way of a law
that isn't you know fighting in the wave of law
fighting for purpose
to support the normal sprinter
whether that support means defense or anything else. So, from your call the FISA vitola the profits are about a certain segment, a little corner a little earlier for FISA vitola. The one who fights so that allows word should be superior, he is the one who is fighting in the cause of Allah. So over here, first of all, Allah says for the artificer, you should fight in the way of Allah, not to gain fame, not to be victorious over the lands of other people and appropriate their wealth, their resources, no, not to gain any worldly benefit, but rather you should fight while fees are beaten.
Who should fight like this, and lower the universe people who use shuren and hire to do
your Sharona or decision to buy or to sell.
Overland particularly gives a sense of selling.
It gives you a sense of selling.
So those people who sell meaning will give up I'll have a near the life of this world. Why in order to gain what will the hereafter
so this is teach us that the objective of fighting in the way of a law is to sell the life of this world to get the life of the
it is to sell the life of this world to get the life of the author.
So first of all, fight feasibly the law.
Secondly, alladhina You shouldn't hire to do naval after
when you're fighting in the river. No, what do you prefer in the life of this? dunya? No, you're preferring the life of the
woman you orthofeet In the end, he never fights in the way of a law for Yucatan, then he is killed. Meaning if this person is killed, he has martyred or he overpowers meaning he conquers the enemy. He overcomes the enemy. For so fun De Lima, then soon we shall give him a great reward.
What do we learn from this ayah? That first of all,
a true believer. Why does he fight? What's the purpose of fighting?
To support the novelist
to exalt the word of Allah,
not to exalt one's own name.
Not to gain the wealth of other people, not to enslave some people
not to conquer land and expand your kingdom for no reason.
The purpose of fighting is to exalt the word of Allah. Because many people say that Islam spread by the sword, that the Muslims who went and fought everywhere, just to expand their land. That's not the goal. The goal is to to exalt the word of Allah subhanaw taala. So wherever there was a need, that's where they went on track, which is why we see that the Muslims didn't go anywhere unnecessarily.
So first of all, we learn about the objective of fighting.
It is feasible and secondly, we learn that when a person fights in the labor law, what is he doing, he is preferring the life of the hereafter over the life of dystonia. Thirdly, we learn that a person goes out in the wave a lot a person who fights in the wave Allah, He is in a win win situation.
If he doesn't overlook, he's a martyr, he will be given a great reward. And if he is victorious, and he goes back home to his family, then again he is getting great reward. So a believer is in a win win situation, when he is in the way of almost
anything he suffers anything he gains, he is getting reward.
So, if the objective is reward, then
whatever happens, a person should not care about that. And he also points out as mentioned earlier, a great reward. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Allah has guaranteed the Mujahideen his cause, that he will either bring death to him admitting into paradise, or he will help him return safely to his home with whatever reward and booty that he gained.
So believer when he goes out in the way of a loss of penalty, he is in a win win situation. And we learn that the martyr the first drop of blood that falls to the ground, what happens is sins are forgiven. his sins are forgiven. So basically, what is it that could stop you from going off in the way of Allah?
Nothing when you're going to benefit in any case,
When, and what is wrong with you? What is the matter with you? Meaning what is it that stops you?
In unifi civilian there, that you would not fight in the cause of war
this is a rebuke that you have no valid reason. There is nothing to prevent you from fighting, you must go and fight. You have justification to stay behind, you have to go and fight.
this is also encouragement that will never come unifi CBT learning Why don't you go and fight in the way of a loved one most of them are feeling while there are those people who are weak, Mister that are female, or those who are made weak from birth. What does that mean? weakness.
So we'll start off is one was made weak. And so the off is from his default scene. What does it mean to seek but it also gives a sense of mobile of meaning. One who is made extremely weak, oppressed, incapacitated, feel completely helpless.
So why aren't you fighting the labor law? Well, there are so there are a theme. While there are those people who are oppressed, who are helpless. Men original, there are the men
and the women will will then and the children. So there are men, women and children who are being oppressed. And whether they say in Medina, Yato, Luna, they are saying of Burnett region, I mean, how the hell are you? Oh, our Lord, take us out of the city. They want to get out of the city. They want to get out of those people out of the control of those people who are oppressing them.
So there are those people who are praying for their relief.
will take us out of this Korea, which Korea have warned me
that it's people are running. The people of this career are running, meaning they're very unjust. They're being oppressive.
We learned that
the Muslims were being persecuted in Makkah. What happened? Some of them migrated to Harvard.
And later on,
the muscles migrated to Medina.
But there were some Muslims who were not able to do hijra they were not able to do. Why? Because they were oppressed by their families. by for example, if there was a woman, and she's married, she has children. How can she go alone? Who is going to take her?
How will she go? How will she travel from Makkah to Medina? It's impossible. Similarly, there is a child, a young child, maybe in his early teens, then there were people who were British to some very young.
So if there are a few edraw, how could they do Hitler? Similarly, there were other men who did not have that much freedom.
So these people, they were being oppressed in Makkah.
There will be a question mark. So Allah subhanaw taala says over here, that why won't you go and fight in a way of Allah to free these people? They are oppressed in them and they're incapacitated. They're being oppressed, they're being treated very interestingly, they're being persecuted.
men, women and children. So Aren't you going to go and help them? Aren't you going to go and rescue them? They need your help. They spend
fuel for them? How can you sit at home and relax and forget about those people who are suffering? You can't forget about them. You have to go and defend these people.
Even Abbas Ferdinand, who said that I and my mother, were from the oppressed in Makkah.
We were among those people who are oppressed in Makkah. And all of you know about the treaty idea that at that time, what happened,
that as soon as a treaty was supposed to be signed immediately, at that moment, some people came from Makkah
and a companion.
His hands were tied up. And he was in a very miserable condition. And he said, aren't you going to help me you're going to sign this treaty? Aren't you going to help me? And obviously for greater benefit, he had to be returned, and eventually he was taken out of Makkah. So there were so many people like him who were being oppressed in Makkah. So I was surprised that it says over here that how can you sit at home and relax?
Because when you have to go fight, what does it mean that you're sacrificing your comfort, you're sacrificing your family. But why wouldn't you? Because there are people who
being oppressed. There are people who are being persecuted, who are praying, originally to Korea to volley me after her
religion coalition and they're praying that Oh Lord, make for us a wedding.
A friend, and also a guardian, meaning one who takes care. One who takes charge of the affairs of someone.
So applying for us, who take charge of our affair and take us out of here.
And make for us from yourself and asleep, meaning a helper, who will defend us against these oppressors.
And we see that Allah subhanaw taala responded to their call. So what do we learn from this ayah? First of all, we learned that in some situations, because of your weakness, you cannot do much to defend yourself. These monster the athlete, what could they do? They were helpless. They couldn't do anything. There is no code do, they left.
But those who couldn't do anything, they were not able to defend themselves.
So in some situations, we feel that we are trapped, we cannot get out of it. We cannot free ourselves from those people who are oppressing us. so in this situation, what should you do pray to Allah subhanaw taala.
It doesn't mean that you don't pray to Allah either. And in other situations, you should pray to him all the time. But especially in this situation, when you cannot find any way out. When the situation is beyond your ability and your control,
then increase in your salary and increase in your was there you know, the salary was
several as well as pray.
Secondly, we learn from this idea that it is the responsibility of those people who are living in security, to not forget those who are living in suffering and misery.
It is a responsibility of those people who are living a life of plentitude who are living a life of ease, that they must not forget those people who are living a life of misery and difficulty. Sometimes, the misery and difficulty is caused by oppression of other people.
And sometimes it is caused by some natural disaster. So for example, if there is an earthquake, if there is a flood somewhere, initially, we're very enthusiastic about helping those people. And sometimes we help them a little bit. And then after some time, we forget about them, while you're forgetting does not mean that their situation has improved, it hasn't improved by, for example, the earthquake that hit Haiti, similarly, the flood that was in Pakistan, initially, people respond a lot. People become very emotional, but after a month or two, after a week or two to forget about it. And they forget that there are people who are still suffering, there are people who are still
Those of you who sent the money to some other countries, you may have noticed that how much the prices have shot up? How much that a goat alone, a small animal is so expensive.
Now person who has asked everything, can I afford to eat meat? Can he? He cannot? So Isn't it your responsibility to send some a to them and not forget about them? Or realize?
What reason do you have to not fight to not help these people when they're being oppressed?
So if you're living a life of plenitude and ease, don't forget about those people who are living in difficulty. Don't forget about them. It is your responsibility to help them to do something, to help them
to plan something in order to help them
and levena amanu those people who believe
they felt in the way of Allah. And on the other hand, when Medina cafaro, those people will display the author on a feasibility for who they fight in the cause of toad.
What is the
one who stands up against the Dean of a law when he was rebellious how that he doesn't submit to the Dean of law first and secondly, he stands up against the Dean of a law
that is authorities
whether it is Showtime, or it was
always carbon ashop whoever. This is what our food is. So a Medina Armando ukata roofie Sabina la they fighting the river Ma and on the other hand, and Lena cafaro, you caught unifi subito. They fight for the cause of shaitaan. They fight out of Tolkien out of rebellion against the truth against Hooray
for Cotonou, so all of you should fight meaning believers we should you fight
earlier shape on the close friends of shape one
You should find the earlier of shaper, the supporters of shape and those who support the way of shaping those who are feasability shape and you can say
because what is the cause of Allah in which a person is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala
and the other is the role of SharePoint in which a person follows the photo out of shape on meaning he is obedient to SharePoint.
They are completely two different ways. Who are the only are short on those who are obedient to shape on those who listen to shape and those who support the work of shaitaan?
What is the work of shaitaan? What is the mission of Sherpa
to misguide people? So if there is any person, any human being who is also doing the same thing, that he is misguiding people,
he is refining people practice the Dean of a law, then he is author of Chevron.
In the context, yes, he does refer to the leaders of the Quraysh. But the is general
in the context refers to the leaders of the Quran because they were the ones who were stopping people from worshipping Allah. And they were working for Showtime. So what is also forgotten earlier on, meaning fight the leaders fight against the leaders while the leaders
because the main problems with the leaders, the general people, the masses, they don't care about their religion, about your religion. They don't care about the differences, isn't it? They find out the differences, but it's the leaders who create problems.
So what does Allah say? Who should you target be? Not the innocent ones. Your target should be
the leaders because they are the ones who are creating the problem.
So for Kathy earlier on in Mecca, shaytani can have an effect. Indeed the plot of shaitaan it is every week, there is ever feeble.
What is the partnership on?
What does it matter shake on how
to lead people astray. And in leading people astray. What does he do? He does vice versa to those people who have influenced to those people who have authority to oppress those who are trying to avail loss apprentice.
This is a partnership that he misguides people, and he also commands people to misguide others.
So, for example, these leaders, what are they doing? First of all, they were misguided themselves and secondly, they were also misguiding others, they were also stopping people from worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.
So in the declarative Shoten It is very it is weak. When you use feeble, it cannot stand up against the plot of or the plan of Allah subhanaw taala.
So what do we learn from this ayah that first of all the believers and disbelievers they clearly differ in their purpose and goal. The believers and disbelievers they clearly differ in their purpose and goal, especially when it comes to battle.
The believer, what is he fighting for? fame? No.
Is he fighting to just get a title? No. Is he fighting to get money? No, to conquer lands? No. To get a lot of saves? No to get a lot of money? No. Why is it that you are fighting fees? in the way of
the video fights for the sake of Allah and the disbeliever? Why does he fight in the workshop on
Saturday, we learn that the believers should always remember the weakness of the enemy. And so imagine the Muslims in Medina, there were few numbers.
And the machine of Makkah, they were very powerful. They had so much a lot of manpower at the same time, a lot of weaponry. So when you see these tangible things, you become worrisome, you become scared. But Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that a believer should always remember the weakness of the enemy, the enemy is relying on go
check out in the sense that the enemy is fighting in the cause of SharePoint. And the cloud of SharePoint is very weak. It may seem very big, but in fact, it is weak. When you see that at the Battle of whether what happened that we learned the truth on he came in the form of one of the leaders, literally, to provoke the people to encourage them to actually go and fight the Muslims because at the Battle of button, it wasn't a planned battle. The Michigan army had come only to defend the caravan. Right. So when the caravan was saved, some people they thought let's go back there's no need to fight. But it is at that at that time shutdown came in the form of one of the
leaders encouraging them that no you've come all this way now fight. Now when we Michigan actually started fighting and was
And when they were suffering when they were suffering their defeat. At that time, we learned that that leader he ran away. He didn't help them at all. He went back because he was actually a thought. So we see that the plot of shaitaan is weak. It is very feeble, it doesn't have any firmness. He doesn't have a steadfastness and a believer should remember that.
And then he will have confidence
