forgotten FISA vilella so fight or Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in the Gaza, forgotten, this is a command that has been given to the Prophet side of
that fight, feasibly the law, in the way of Allah.
So first of all, you should fight in the way of Allah, and then learn to colourful learn of suck, you are not held responsible, except for yourself to kind of level we have done this word earlier as well later, you can live along with Epson illa wasana from the routers, cath lab.
And what does that mean?
to impose something on someone to burden a person with a responsibility with a task to perform, so that you can level meaning you're not responsible, you're not charged in that epoch except for yourself. Meaning you are responsible, you're accountable only for yourself, you're supposed to make sure that you do what you're supposed to do. So therefore, don't be concerned about other people if they're fighting or not, because in these is, what has been emphasized is fighting in a wave of loss of penalty. So if the people don't pay, for example, the hypocrites are heard what happened 300 of them went back home. So when these things happen, just imagine the state of the leader. Just imagine
that they're not doing it. So what does Allah subhanaw taala? Say? But you do it, because you're responsible only for yourself. So don't worry about those people who don't do it. For coffees or be the lead, lead who can level inland upset you cannot force them, or heavy laden mood meaning and incite, urge instigate encourage the believers to do what
to fight as well to deal with that as well?
Have it have a listener that has held all blood? From the word How do you have a job, which is to incite to encourage, to provoke someone to do something?
It is to provoke someone to do something from the same root as the word help. And how is to be on the point of that, because a person is about to die. So the ideal is to encourage someone so much that they're about to do it.
Like to encourage someone so much that they can imagine themselves doing it, they can't wait to do it.
I for example, if you encourage a child that put on your jacket, we're gonna go outside and play, do this, do this, you keep encouraging them, what's going to happen, they can't wait to go outside. So similarly, how do they work meaning encourage the believers inside them, meaning make them desire it, don't just tell them you have to do it, you have no choice. No, encourage them. Because if they are encouraged, then they will have a class, they will be eager to do it, then you will not have to tell them, they will want to do it themselves. And remember that that is one of the most difficult things to do
the most difficult because you're putting your own life at risk. So for this, what is needed, that you encourage the person and when you encourage the person to do it, then you can make them do anything.
When you motivate a person, then you can make them do anything. And if they're not motivated, then no matter how much you tell them, they're never going to do it. So what's the key? What's the button motivation.
So somehow figure out as to how you're going to motivate them how to really move meaning encourage the believers make them desire it
perhaps allow a lot meeting perhaps it is hoped that almost a penalty will confirm that he will stop. You could face from cough
and cough is to restrain it is to prevent to stop something. So it is hoped that Allah subhanaw taala will stop what
the bats the mite meaning the war of who and Medina cafaro those people who disbelieve
because just imagine after the Battle of or heard so many things are happening. So many things were happening every now and then somebody would come in hurt the Muslims. So encourage the believers that they are prepared. They're willing, inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will stop what? The attack of alladhina cafaro. How? How will he break it?
When you are ready yourself, when you yourself can do it. Because you see at the beginning of the year, what was it that you alone fight?
But a person cannot fight alone. A person cannot defend himself alone. What does he need?
Other people. Similarly, when you're doing something, you cannot do something alone. You need the help of other people. So over your last pantalla saying that encourage them so that your numbers grow, so that everybody willingly does it. And when everybody will willingly do it, then what's going to happen? Then you're going to break the power of the enemy.
Well, lo, a shadow Robertson, and Allah is more intense invest, meaning you can also finish these people by himself.
He is more intense than his might. He is mightier than a mightier than who, mightier than Alinea follow what I said the den killer and he is more intense in giving punishment
than killing somebody. Federer is known cath lab. And we did the word nickel earlier, what is
a punishment that sets as an example for other people,
it becomes a deterrent for them.
So I shot the tequila, meaning he is also severe in giving exemplary punishment and giving severe punishment in giving affliction, then who, then under the Nakamoto, because you see so far, the Michigan America, what are they doing?
Any Muslims that they would get a hold of? They were brutally killed.
They were brutally killed them if you learn about how some of the companions were killed. Why would they do that?
So that other Muslims would become fearful. So they would brutally killed them, they would persecute them? Why do make that persecution as an Akan for other Muslims that they don't remain Muslim. They don't dare to go against the machine. But Allah, Allah says, You think your punishment is thank you know, a loss, Panthera is more intense in giving thinking.
So what do we learn from this is the obligation of fighting only in the way of our most primal data. And for no other objective, because it has been set apart in,
secondly, from this, we learn about the obligation of a class,
being sincere in one's deeds in one's actions. Because if a person is doing even the most difficulty with that, but if he's not doing it, feasibly, the less than is it acceptable? No. So the action might be very huge, it might be very important. But if there is no loss, then that action is ruined, it's gone, it's finished, it carries no weight.
So we learn about the importance of if loss from this as well. We also learn from this idea that if you are the only one, you are the only one to stand up for the truth, then you must do it.
Because over here, it has been set for corporate visibility led to Carnival Atlanta, fight, even if you're alone, just you.
So even if you are the only person who is standing up for the truth, then don't give up. Don't give up, keep holding on to the truth, which is why we see that the scholars of the past I, for example, I might have been humbled how much he suffered. Why? Because he stood up for the truth.
It was as though the entire Obama was against him. The halifa was against him.
Everybody was against him. Only a few individuals were on his side. And he was brought to the court he was punished. People would come and debate with him. He went through so much. But he held on to the truth, although he was alone. Why? Because at the end of the day, you're responsible for yourself. Ally is going to question you that what did you do?
You're not going to be questioned about what other people that you're going to be questioned about what you do. So if you know the truth, if you have the Hulk, it is your responsibility to stand up for it.
You cannot say that I was unknown. So therefore I couldn't do it. No. Because sometimes we think that if we're alone, then we can compromise.
Like for example, sometimes, some girls they start wearing the niqab. And if they go to school, they feel they're the only one wearing the niqab.
So they think that they can take it off. And sometimes it happens with many people. I've seen it. Many people, they start, they go, and they take it off why I'm the only ones who I stand out.
But even if you're the only one. And if you started something good, then you must continue.
Because you never know somebody else might be encouraged.
I remember when I started wearing the hijab, I was very young. I was probably in grade three or four. But that's when I started wearing it like everyday to school before I would wear every now and then but that's when I started wearing it everyday to school. And when I started wearing it, I remember two three other girls altos.
Because when a person does something good and other people are motivated, they're encouraged. And if you think that No, no, I'm alone, I cannot do this.
Then remember that you are accountable for yourself, always going to question you. You can't put the blame on other people.
You're accountable for yourself.
So we learn about the obligation of holding on to the truth, standing up to the truth, even if you are alone.
We also learn from this is about being mindful, and being careful about your actions. Why?
Because level two can level in there.
You're only accountable for yourself, you are responsible for yourself. So if you're responsible for yourself doesn't mean that you shouldn't neglect yourself. know, if you're going to be questioned about yourself, then what does it mean? You should be careful about your actions about your words, you're going to be asked, you're going to be questioned. So be careful. Take care of yourself. You know, we're so careful about our food, about our workloads, about our skin about our different things. We're so careful.
Why aren't we careful about our enough's, that this is also something that I should be careful about.
But also learn from this idea that when a person is mindful and concerned about himself, then you should not forget others. Because many times people say that I'm only responsible for myself, and I'm not responsible for others, so they can do whatever they want. I'm not going to tell them anything. Yes, it has been said that four copies of it in there that you can live with. But at the same time, what has been said? Well, how do you mean also encourage the believers? So what does it show that in being overly concerned about yourself, you should not neglect other people, you should not neglect encouraging them, you should not neglect telling them, you are responsible to tell them
as well. Your responsibility is with regards to yourself when it comes to action.
But when it comes to telling people, then you are responsible for getting them as well. You're not responsible for making sure that they act upon what you tell them, but you are responsible to tell them how they will move meaning.
We also learn from this I about the need to encourage people to do those things which are important, and they might find difficult.
They need to encourage people to do those things which are important, but they might find difficult. Sometimes we tell somebody to do something. And if they don't listen, what do we do? Find don't do it.
What should we do at that time, encourage them, motivate them because people need motivation. People need motivation.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said to the believers at the Battle of Baghdad while he was organizing their lines Kumu Illa gentlemen, outdo her son Allah to
stand up and march 4 to Jenna as wide as the heavens and the earth.
Why did he say that? Wasn't the video was already there. At but they were already there. But still he encouraged them. Because when a person is encouraged, then what happens is not scared anymore.
He's not doubtful anymore.
The Avatar a lot is also said, in encouragement to do Patel, that paradise has 100 gates, which Allah has reserved for the Mujahideen, who fight in his cause. And the distance between each two gates is like the distance between the heaven and the earth.
So just imagine these many doors just reserved for who
for the Mujahideen, you know, sometimes if you go to the airport, and there are the people with the normal passports, the people with the home country passports. And then there are people with the Canadian passport is people with the British passport. What happens then it's a separate line for them. They get quick service.
And sometimes we see that, for example, you go to the grocery store, and there's an aisle, just one to 10 items one to eight items. So it's a special service that you know you can come from here quickly. You can go from here quickly. But sometimes that happens, the line is so long, that you like might as well go from the normal line. It takes so long, but how many gates are there 100 gates of gender and the distance between the two is how long the distance between the heaven and the earth. This is how the profits are of a certain encourage the believers.
We also learn from this idea that a believer he encourages other people to do good generally.
You know for example, you could be doing this
yourself, you're sitting, you're doing this in your heart on your tongue quietly. And you're thinking in your heart, these people, they're wasting their time.
Like yesterday, when the power went out, I heard some people saying, let's do this, let's do a god or something like that. And everybody started saying the Oscar.
So you need some motivation, you need a reminder. So a believer should motivate other people as well. Now if that time that sister just started doing it herself in her heart and think that Oh, these girls are wasting their time, I'm so good. I'm so righteous. She's not motivating other people.
We alternate from this idea that the measure of victory and loss is only with a loss.
Because over here, losses are so long, it is hoped that our last penalty will stop the might of those people who disbelieve
so it's up to Allah, whether he will give you victory or he will give you loss, but you have to do your best
monashheart chef artisan hasn't eaten, whoever intercedes for a good cause. In the previous ayah the healed has been mentioned encouragement has been mentioned.
And over here, intercession has been mentioned
what is Shiva?
Shiva is wondering if that machine fairing and Scheffer is to join to join one with another in order to make even the opposite of Scheffer is with with this odd one. So, you join one with another and you will have an even number
you have three you join one you will have four you will have an even number. So shefa is to join one thing with another
and from this shofar is intercession Why? Because shuffle means that one person, he joins another and he advocates on his behalf. He speaks on his behalf. So that person who was alone, now he has somebody supporting him. Now he has somebody speaking for him.
So this is what Chavez so many as far as chef Arthur Hasson, whoever intercedes and intercession, that is Hassan, what does it mean by this,
that for a good cause, He intercedes for a good cause. For example, the person who intercedes for a good cause, there is a person who is suffering from a problem from some poverty. Now it is that you give some sort of yourself. And the other is that you advocate for them in the sense that not that you publicize that, oh, this person is poor. So please give them charity. No, that is not appropriate. Because we have been commanded to conceal the need of the other hide the need of the other in the sense that don't expose them so that they're humiliated.
But if you go and request someone,
like, for example, your father,
that would you like to give to someone?
I know somebody who needs help.
No one is a to give some donation. And the other is that you do Shiva, and you go to your friends and your relatives that would you like to donate? Would you like to contribute? Go ahead, why don't you?
So this is what your father has said. That you are interceding, you're advocating for a good cause? for a good cause.
And this good cause is definitely in accordance with the Sharia.
You can't say that you're having a charity event in which there's going to be music and dancing and how long and you go and sell those tickets. It's a good cause. No, it has to be in accordance with the [???]tier. Alright.
So Jefferson has an
It is also that the Jefferson has center refers to making a DA for another believer.
Because what is it, you're requesting? you're advocating for them? That Oh, Allah, please give such and such to this person.
Please, ease their difficulty.
This is what Sharon has said that you're praying for them.
30 husbands at the Jefferson Center. This is a reconciliation between two people.
This is reconciliation between two people. So for example, you know, the two people inside a fight. They're not talking to one another. So you come and you initiate the conversation. You say the door doesn't matter. Forget about it. Just speak to them. Just talk to them.
So this is what I request that is precedent.
And there are many other examples as well.
There's also said that because it's
relevant to the context of Patel, that whoever yes far sharper than whoever joins meaning the numbers of the Muslims. For example, in the previous side, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has been told you fight alone, one
alone. Now, if another person comes and joins him, now he's not alone anymore, or two, and another person comes and joins him. They're three. So whoever joins whoever contributes in a good cause?
Is shefa then has an atom. What does Allah say? Your cola Who? nursery boomin he will have a share from it.
Meaning he will have a share of reward because of his cheetah.
You only request it You didn't do anything yourself. Like for instance, you know about the fundraising that's going on. And you yourself cannot give a lot of donation. But you take the flyer to someone who can contribute a lot and they give $1,000
could you afford to give $1,000? Probably not.
But because you requested what's going to happen? What's going to happen What does Allah say? Your cola who knows Lieberman has such a person he will also have a share of the reward.
And on the other hand, woman Yes, Varsha ferret and say he I think, whoever does the shofar that is say that is evil. It is contrary to Chavez and has no meaning for an evil cause for a cause that is in disobedience to a loss of handlebar. Similarly praying against someone making a duel against the believers, or joining the enemy against the Muslims.
What does Allah say? Yakubu kefla minha he will have a key fulfillment. If you notice,
the first word that was used wasn't asleep, push apart and center. And the other word that has been used for Shiva is give what's the difference between asleep and careful?
No sleep is a share that is fixed that is appointed
and given is a result
whether it is good or bad,
it is a result whether it is good or bad. But it is a necessary result. You can say it's like a mandatory result. This is something that definitely happens.
He cannot get out of it.
A person cannot avoid it. It is also given as a complete portion of something. So he will have a share of evil from it. Meaning you will have a share of sin as well.
Although he didn't actually participate in the sin himself, but just because he contributed in it, just by his intercession, therefore, he will have a sin as well.
What kind of law who are there could leash a Makita and Allah is over all things. observer, powerful nourisher
the name of Allah subhanaw taala. Repeat is from the newsletters of well that from the word good.
It is from the word goods. Have you heard the word quote before? Or in the who call to Yomi fucka never. He's
a person who wakes up and he has, amongst other things, the food of the day, then this is it. The whole world was brought to his disposal meaning he is like a king. We think that we're King if we have food for 50 days, for 100 days food for the rest of our lives. But what is the Hadees tell us that if a person has even food for that day, he's like cooking, he has everything that he needs.
So food is food or it is such nourishment, not just food, but such nourishment. That a living being needs in order to survive in order to stay alive. This is what good is
what is called nourishment, food that a living being needs in order to stay alive. This is the meaning of the word quote
from this movie, it has been understood in several ways.
First of all, it has been said that millipede is one who gives foods one who provides nourishment.
One who provides nourishment, but what kind of nourishment
according to the need of the other.
Secondly, we said that movie is
mock data meaning one who is ever powerful
because the one who provides oath is
So first of all, nuclear means nourisher one who provides good Secondly, it is said that it means maka didn't mean no one was ever powerful. Thirdly, it is also said that it is Shahid meaning a witness
Shaheed observer because only the one who observes can provide good
because then you will know okay this is what is needed and this is what is not needed. For example, you as a person who lives in the house knows what is needed. And if you just tell your husband who doesn't open the fridge ever to the groceries, what would you bring everything that you need? No right? You This is why many women they prefer to go do the groceries themselves. Why? Because they know what is needed because they are showerhead they're watching the kitchen. They know what's in there, they know what's not there, they know what is eating what is not eating.
So motif is also understood as Shaheed meaning as a witness, and there are other meanings as well off.
However, over here, these are sufficient.
So we're almost pensado says they were kind of level then allies ever adequately shimokita that he is located over everything.
What does he mean by that? That he is mosquito everything that he is the one who provides nourishment to everything. He is the one who watches and observes everything.
He is the one who watches and preserves everything. He is the one who has power over everything. He is the one who conserves everything. He is the one who protects everything.
So what do we learn from this ayah that first of all encouragement to do Shiva has an
encouragement to do Shiva, Hasson. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, intercede and you will gain a reward of it. intercede and you will gain a reward of it.
Like for example, if there's somebody who wants something, you can intercede for them. If somebody should be given something, you can intercede for them.
Like for instance, if your mother just came back from somewhere, and she's thinking of giving gifts to everybody, to your relatives or to your friends, then you can request that you know, maybe you should also give to so and so this is much of our This is a request. Now, you request it. And as a result, you will also get the reward. Now sometimes in these situations, we remain quiet. We don't say anything we say it's their business. It's my business. But in this situation, if we intercede, it's an opportunity to acquire some has an asset to the profit sort of awesome commanded the Sahaba isuru to journal that intercede and you will get a reward for it.
Don't be stingy when it comes to using good words.
We also learned from this ayah about the importance of the hour one of cooperating with one another in good
that Shiva and Hassan you're requesting Hassan, you're advocating for Hassan, why? Because you're cooperating for that which is good.
We also learn from the cyber warning against your fire. I say that if a person only requests something that is bad, that go ahead and say something to someone, something negative. Like for example, if somebody has an argument with someone, instead of solving the problem, what do we do? You should say that, you know you should do that. This is what Chavez say. Although you don't actually say that yourself. You don't do it yourself. But still just because you said it, you're also going to be held accountable for it.
And we also know that Allah subhanho data is mockito for everything. And because of this, a slave should be mindful of Allah. Allah is watching every single thing of mine and he is my provider. He is my nourisher. Therefore, I should have higher
vena cava Whoa, whoa, whoa, I should do better.
