Al-Maidah 6-14 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 11-12
Yeah, you are Latina Armani, or you have believed both Corona or Matala here and he could remember the blessing of Allah upon you which blessing, which blessing is.
So indicates, remember this particular blessing, which blessing that when some people intended to harm you, a loss of safety. In the previous is when we learned about the blessings of Allah which blessings were there, all the blessings, every single blessing, but over here, specifically this blessing, remember?
Now what does it mean by remembering the blessing of Allah doesn't mean just talking about it? Does telling people Oh, you know this, and this happened, and that happened. And I got this and I got that. Is it just mentioning and talking? Is that what they could have? nirma is what so they could have nirma
that a person is grateful for the blessing of
you know, because Allah has mentioned the blessings of Allah. So if I have something I should tell other people,
I have something I should tell other people. So for example, a person says, Well, you know, I drive this car. And he says, Let's go to near Manila.
But in fact, he's showing up.
So doesn't mean that he's following the command. No. But it means is that when you mentioned the blessing, you are mentioning for the purpose of sugar that you say and handling
and handling. Allah has given me such and such.
And again, you're not doing it for the purpose of showing off but you're doing it to remind one another of the favors of a loved one you like, for example, you're going in your comfortable car, and it's snowing outside. So at that time, don't just drive comfortably and think about those people who are walking that Oh, poor them. They can't afford a car and I have such a nice luxurious car with a heated seat. What should a person realize at that time, he should mention to his spouse or to his children, that 100 a lot. This is such a huge blessing of a lot that we have a nice, comfortable warm car. This is what we could have never met is that a person when he remembers meaning he's
grateful for the blessing.
So old Caronia Matala here they come in, don't just talk about it, but rather express gratitude for the blessing.
Which blessing in particular, in Himachal when people intended
hammer is from the root Petrus hammy meme, and we did the word ham much earlier it hammerfall if a tiny man Come and touch Allah,
what does he mean, to intend to do something?
When a person makes an intention, it is hard to do something.
And when you intend to do something automatically what happens? You begin to think about it.
For example, you say when I go home, I'm going to cook this today, or I'm going to have this food today. So just because you had that intention, what happens if you begin thinking, Okay, I don't have that ingredient, I have to stop on my way to pick that up. And I will do this first and then I will cook. You know, when you make an intention, automatically, you begin to think about it, you start planning about it as to how you're going to execute it. So hum is used for thought intention to make a plan about doing something. And then the word hum is also used for worrying concern. Because many times you're anxious until you execute the plan.
Once you've thought about something, then you can't come down unless and until you have actually done it.
Over here humbucker would meaning when they intended when they planned.
What do they intend
and you have a subtle la come at home, that they extend their hands towards you. What does it mean whether
to shake your hands with you know, to harm you? This is an expression for attacking and harming you. So you have Soto's from basata What does that mean to extend the spread out? So they intended to extend their hand to words you in aggression in order to attack you.
When was this? When was this? This wasn't just once. This wasn't just once the Sierra of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is full of such incidents in which people, as individuals as groups as armies, they came and they try to harm the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Sahaba the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It was the people of Mecca was operation was the mercy code. It was the other Bedouin Arabs who were in the desert. It was some other tribes lived outside of Makkah, even the people of thought if similarly, it wasn't just a machine but it was also the yahood who were in Medina.
refers to not just one particular people, not just one particular person, but it refers to the enemies, the enemies of Islam,
that they intended to harm you. But what happened? What was the blessing of Allah that forgot for a human con? That he restrained, he held back their hands from you.
Meaning he did not let them be successful in attacking you, in harming you. This is a blessing of Allah, that they intended to harm you. They made a plan even they even came. But Allah soprano thought is the one who protected you. What does that show that blessing. nierman is not just something that a person receives. It's not just receiving something. But nirma includes being saved from something harmful, being saved from something dangerous. They intended to attack you but Allah saved you. This is an error. Safety is also a blessing of Allah.
What the Kanawha and fear Allah were the lucky for me noon, and upon a launch of the believers trust.
Many incidents have been reported in books of the fasciae with regards to the revelation of this ayah.
For example, some have said that this was revealed about the tribe of Banu and Lily, and this tribe was Jewish. And these people they plotted to drop a stone, a huge rock on the head of the Prophet sort of all the sudden when he came to them for help to be the blood money of two persons who Muslims had killed. Because remember, the contract of Medina was that everybody will take responsibility, whether you're Muslim or not. So what happened? They the Jews, the venue in the lead, they were with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they said, Okay, yes, yes, we will help you, we will assist you. We will just come back to you. Let's just have some discussion, we will come
back to you. And instead of coming back to the profit side of Addison and with the money, what did they do? One of them he went up on the building against the wall in which the profit side of Addison was resting and he was about to throw the stone the boulder on the profits out of cinnamon jabril came and informed him that he must leave.
seminary similarly inserted into number 67. We learn one law we are similkameen and ness, a law will save you from the people alone will protect you from the people.
There were so many times in which the Prophet sallallahu alone was attacked.
We also learned from another incident in which the profits are about a certain he wants stayed at an area and the people spread out seeking shade under various trees. So imagine Muslims are traveling and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was resting at a particular spot, and the other Muslims they spread out, seeking shade under various trees. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam hung his weapon on a tree.
And a Bedouin man came and took his weapon, and he held it. And he came towards the profit, subtle bonus and when he said, Who can protect you from me? Who can protect you from me? And the Prophet sallallahu replied Allah, the most honored. And the Bedouin man repeated his question twice or thrice. And each time the prophet SAW a lot of sunset, Allah.
And then eventually what happened to Bedouin men, he was awestruck, and he threw the sword, and the prophets are loaded and called his companions. And he told them what had happened, while the Bedouin man was sitting next to the profits.
So basically, we see that it wasn't just once or twice the profit sort of Allison was attacked, but rather, many, many times has happened, that the profits are so high that they were attacked, but Allah is the one who saved.
So over here, they are being reminded of this huge blessing. What do we learn from this is that at the time of success, one should never think that he was successful because of his own efforts. Because of his planning. When a person achieves his goal, he should never think that it was possible because of his planning because of his hard work because of his efforts. But rather, you should remember that there were many times where he slipped many times where he was about to give up many times where he was going to fail completely, Hope it came up, who gave him the confidence. And last,
because you see sort of Amanda is the last suitor, and at this time a loss of penalty is reminding the Muslims that if today your religion has been completed and perfected, look at the many times that it was about the whole matter was about to finish. And you can think about this in any aspect of your life that you start something and you think so you cannot go on. You cannot move on.
You give up almost, you think that that's it, it's finished, it's over. And what happens, all of a sudden, things are fine again. It says, oh, somebody has literally picked you up and given you the confidence again and set you on the move again. And eventually you reach your destination, you become successful. So at that time, don't become proud of yourself, but rather, be humble. And remember that Allah is the one who gave you the stuff.
Many times you slept, many times you made mistakes, many times it was impossible for you to take the next step. But Allah is the one who gave it to
you, we also learn from this ayah that nirma blessing includes receiving something and also guff off, meaning when a person is saved from something that is harmful. We also learn from this ayah, but the obligation of tawakkol, or the law,
reliance upon Allah, you cannot do the work on yourself. You cannot do the work on your intellect, on your family, on your money, on your time, on your health, you cannot do the work on anything. Because whatever you start, whatever you begin, you will always find challenges, you will always find difficulties. And if you think that because of your family, you will be successful, or because you're very intelligent, you'll be successful, or because you have a lot of time, that's why you will be successful. No, it's because a loss of penalty will enable you That's why you will be successful.
So we learn that whenever a person does something, who should he rely upon? of loss? What are the law, the failure to work?
That's listen to the recitation of these verses.
One of the law Mr. Kobani is for you.
And certainly Allah took me south from the Bani Israel. Again, you see me Falcons mentioned, covenant has mentioned which means that there are some responsibilities upon you.
So the fact that there's a mishap with the believers, this is not the first time before even the previous or mother Bani Israel. Even they had a mishap with Allah. And what was this Misuk of worshipping a loss
of obeying the prophet or following the commands, staying away from the prohibitions? So Allah took this Misa from the Bani Israel as well, that they must also fulfill their responsibilities as believers. What about us? And we appointed but I slept from the room peppers ban, I say, we raised we appointed men home from them meaning from the bunny is for you. His name I shall do and 10 How much is that? 12. So we appointed in them 12 nucky, even 12. Leaders 12 in charges 12 chiefs. Why? Because there were, how many tribes? 12 tribes. So for each tribe, there was an athlete.
Now the question is, who is an athlete?
now famous from their newsletters known Kafka.
And nakoda literally means to pierce through to go through something.
Imagine if there is a wall, or there is a door, and you don't know what's happening beyond that wall beyond that door, and you need to know what are you going to do?
A small window, or let's say your main door of your house, what are you going to have a Pico through which you can peek through which you can see if somebody's knocking the door, who is it?
So nakaba is to make a hole through something so that you can know what's going on. That's undercover means it doesn't mean that you're stalking someone, that you're spying on someone, but you are keeping a check to ensure that everything is running smoothly, that things are functioning properly. That whatever has to be done is being done. Everybody is performing their duties.
Like for example, if there's a particular building
And let's say there's an organization of their people are working on something. Now, the manager or the security guard, let's say he cannot keep a check on every person by himself. is everybody doing what they're supposed to do? nobody's doing something dangerous. nobody's doing something harmful? What? Are they going to have? cameras, security cameras? Why to spy on people? Is that the reason? No, but what is it to ensure that everybody's doing what they're supposed to do? nobody's doing something that they shouldn't be doing.
And if they're doing something that they shouldn't be doing, they should be stopped. Why? Because it's going to affect them. It's going to affect other people.
So now P is achieved. Nikita is a leader. Najib is someone who is fully acquainted of those who are under him.
Why is he fully acquainted for the purpose of improvement, for the purpose of deep, to teach other for the purpose of tarbiyah, to train to educate this life as a mother, as a parent? Do you just leave your children as they are, and you don't care about what's in their bags while they're doing their homework? No, you check every day, what they're bringing in their beds, if whatever they took, they brought it back or not. And what they're bringing back from school actually belongs to them. And they're not bringing somebody else's pens and pencils, somebody else's toys, or balls or whatever. Similarly, you make sure that the lunch that you gave them, they actually ate it, and it
didn't eat it, you ask them, What did you eat instead? What is it that you're stocking your children? That's what some people think that no, it's not right, I should trust my children, when you trust them. And then later on, you realize that they've been committing theft. as little children, they have developed the habit of stealing other people's things. Why? Because you never kept a close check on their activities. Similarly, as a parent, you may check your child's email, or you may check your child's phone or something, why to make sure that what they're doing is right. Now, again, this is not that you're stalking your child, you are spying on them, but to make sure
that they're not doing anything wrong. And that what they're supposed to do, they are doing.
Many times we take this, like, you know, this is my business, this is my life, who are you to interfere? Who are you to ask me, but it's the responsibility of a leader, that he must make sure that those who are under him, they are doing what they're supposed to do.
So Allah subhanaw taala appointed and it can somebody object. Can somebody object, no allies on who appointed in a table?
Allah appointed Najib, for each and every tribe, he appointed a leader to make sure that every person was doing what they were supposed to do.
Because it's very easy to sign a contract. To say that yes, I will do whatever you tell me to. Very easy to say yes, I accept all the terms and conditions, all the rules, I will follow the rules. Very easy to do that. But later on, you forget. And you need reminders. Let's say when you sign up for a phone pan or something, you get reminder messages, you get reminder emails, you get reminder phone calls. Why? Because as a human being you forget, you need somebody to remind you, you need somebody to tell you, you need somebody to keep a check on your activities.
Not because you are even in your heart and you're going to disobey anyway. You're not going to care. No, it's because you're a human being you're gonna forget, you need somebody to tell you. So this is why Allah subhanaw taala appointed Najib, on every single tribe of the budding Islam
will call Allah and Allah said, in numerical, indeed, I am with you. Meaning I will be with you. How? What does it mean by this, that I will be with you, to help you, to support you, to protect you, to assist you. In the miracle, I will be with you let in a comfortable silence. So Allah subhanaw taala has helped me as it is promised, however, it is conditional. You have to do something as well. Because remember, a contract is both sided. You do what you're supposed to do, and the other party will do what they're supposed to do. So you will get a lot of help. But what do you have to do to get that help in a comfortable center?
First of all, you have to establish the solid. Secondly, what data was the data you have to give this occur?
Thirdly, we're going to Miro city and you believe in my messengers, which messengers, all of them
nanofab jacobina. I hadn't been home
and you don't just believe in the messenger, but was up to him and you also support
a 000900 issue.
help someone out of respect for them,
to help someone, why, out of respect for them,
for example, maybe your mother, if she's doing something, so out of respect for your mother, it's great that she is an elderly woman, and she has to stand for so long and you know, do such hard work out of respect for her, what do you do? You help her, this is what it is. And it is to give strength and honor to someone.
And as there are all things that when you are helping someone, you do it out of respect for them. But at the same time, you keep that level of respect, meaning you continue to respect them.
Because many times when we are helping someone, when we are working with someone, we think of them as equal to us. We think as though we are working on the same project we're equals were the same age. So no big deal and we forget the element of respect. Many times we forget the element of respect. But this is very important. Respect to something that is a major part of already, that you don't just help the messengers, but you also have to respect them.
And you help them because of respect for them.
Well as of to, you will support them, strengthen them, respect them.
Well, caloptima lacandon hassane and you will also give a loan to Allah which line, a beautiful loan a good loan. What does it mean by that? That what you give in the way of Allah is good. You give it with a good name, with a good intention. It's given only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.
So Curatola cotton Hashanah.
So if you do this, I am with you. Meaning you have my help. My promises with you. What is the promise of Allah? If you do this, what is a lot of times are going to give you
first of all, Luca filler noncom se Attica.
I will definitely expiate, from you your sense, look, I feel Ronda Kapha or what is cool for me, literally, to cover something circa fall, you can feel it The key is to wipe off what the feet of say ethical offsets.
Because when something is wiped off, it's erased, it's gone. You don't see it any more
similarity when something is covered, you don't see it anymore.
So Luca, Fiona and concise article, meaning I will wipe off your sins I will obliterate I will pardon you for your sins.
And as human beings, we always make mistakes. We always make mistakes, we know about the obligation of the farmer to sort of eat that was the kind of Eman of supporting the messengers of spending in the way of what we know about the obligation.
However, as human beings, sometimes we make mistakes we forget. So if you continue to do this, then Allah will forgive you for your shortcomings, provided that you continue to do what you're supposed to do you take that seriously.
And what are the hidden nickel? And I will also definitely surely I will definitely admit you into where Jonathan into gardens 30 min tactical and how underneath which rivers flow.
And remember, Jeanette, Florida has been used over here. Why? Because there isn't just one gender in which everybody will be accommodated. There are many, many levels of gender. And there are different types of German as well into lots of RAM and we will learn about for dannette that wollmann Hotham, uponor, ob Jen Nathan to dinner,
and then woman dueling email, Jen Nathan. So, there are different types of genetics, different types of gender, of gardens, as well as different levels. And they depend on what
on what a person has done, what a person deserves.
So depending on what you do, depending on your commitment on the level of your commitment, I will admit you into gardens. That didn't mean tactical and how underneath which rivers flow
from an cafaro Garden alikum income and whoever disbelieves after that among you have either been less aware of Seville than in fact, he has gone he has gone a street from where from the correct way.
So, what does that mean? So what is equal? So why on earth am and delta home?
So why is equal and from the server is used for the lesson, the mid of something the midst of something because when something is equal from both sides, then what do you have
the middle part so
gives a sense of balanced correct.
So for quite a while, so as to be meaning he has lost the right way, he has lost the correct way he has gone on to an extreme, and therefore he will not reach the destination. He has lost the straightaway. For for the one that so as to be what do we learn from this if First of all, we learned that a lot of panel data is out of the billions, and in return for it reward from every nation. It's not just the Muslims, but it's also the many Israeli before us. This is something that is with every single human being, that if you do what you're supposed to do, then Allah will reward you.
Secondly, we learn about the importance of organization from beside the importance of division of work, because the money is about you 12 in charges were appointed on
musasa was a prophet. And later on, it says, Well, I'm into military after Messiah Listen, um, there was always some profit, there was always some profit. So why were those nuclear important, because one person cannot manage an entire group himself, he can instruct them. But he cannot do, he cannot perform the role of an athlete. One person alone cannot perform the role of repeat over a large group,
he cannot make sure that each and every person is performing well is doing what he's supposed to do properly.
So for the purpose of achieving the goals, what do you have to do, you have to divide the work, you have to divide the work. For example, if you're cleaning your house, can you clean your house all by yourself, just one person, it falls upon only one person becomes very difficult, they cannot do it. So what do you do you tell your son to vacuum, you tell your daughter to do the dishes. So you divide the work to make sure that everything is done properly. We also learn from this, about the importance of about the role of an in charge and in charge in any capacity, whether they are the in charge at home, or they are in charge of a particular group.
And not just the in charge, but also the role of those who are under them. Those who they are in charge of what's the role of the in charge that they have to be an athlete
that they have to know about the progress of every single individual under
every single individual. How are they performing? What are they doing? Are they doing what they're supposed to do? Or are they leaving something out?
This includes the attendance This includes the tests, this includes the lessons, this includes the assignments, it includes everything, you have to ensure the progress.
So, okay, this is the role of the chart. But what about those who are under them? What about those who are under them? If the charge asks them, did you do your lesson? Is it? Why is she asking? What's the role of those who are under them under the charge
that they should listen to, they should accept what the in charge tells them. And they should also fulfill their duties. They should also fulfill their obligations. And if somebody is asking, they're not asking because they hate you, because they dislike you because they have a problem against you know, they're keeping a check on you for your betterment for your good.
So don't get bogged if somebody is asking you. Like, just leave me alone. And don't ask me No, don't feel like that distinct code as they're my well wishes.
mean, she's spending so much time to check if I have done my lesson. Think about it. She might as well do something different. But she's spending her time to make sure that I am doing my lesson that I am understanding my work property that I have done the test properly. We think that why do we have to take a test, and the test is so long. And we don't think about the fact that there's somebody who has to check the test. You have to do only one test or somebody else who has to mark many more tests. So it's both sided than a thief has to do their role. But they cannot do their role if the people under them, do not cooperate with them. Both have to cooperate with one another. Again, look
beyond the person, look beyond the person, see as to why they're doing something for your betterment. That you're spending your time, your money, your efforts, your energy. And when you leave this place, you leave with something in your hand.
And at the beginning you had made a commitment. So somebody is assisting you to fulfill your commitment. So instead of being upset with them, we should be grateful to them, instead of being upset but then we should be grateful to them.
That they're spending their time, their energy to help me achieve my goal. That's a big deal. Really, it's a big deal. Somebody is volunteering just to make sure that I'm achieving my goal, that the promise I made, I fulfill it. So this ayah teaches us about the importance of the role of the nucleus, and the importance of cooperation on the part of those who are under them. And the fact that people must look beyond other people, and they must see that other people are assisting them in achieving their goals. It's for my betterment for my benefit. And at the end of the day, why it's the right of Allah. It's the right Have a look that you must know the meaning of the Quran. If
somebody is helping you, why are they helping you? Why are they helping you? For your sake and not just for your sake, but for the sake of Allah? Then it's a last book. So really look beyond people don't just get stuck there. Focus on the goal, focus on the Quran, focus on the right of Allah Kournikova meaning that
we also have in this idea that a lot of panels are this help and assistance is promised to those believers, which believers who first of all establish the salah, they give this a cat, they fulfill their duties towards Allah and when they fulfill their duties towards a lead that Allah will fulfill His promises with obiter code, and these duties are these actions that the believers must perform, which are mentioned this idea can be divided into three groups First of all, performing the obligations performing the obligation select and look at what are they for.
Secondly, complete Eman. How am I
not just one messenger but all messengers complete email.
Thirdly, do you have
that as of the moment you assist the messengers of Guatemala Hakata carbon has done so through knifes, and through man,
he had been nuts and he had been man. So they can be divided into three groups. So basically, when a person fulfills his obligations, when a person has the correct Eman And when a person does jihad, then he invites the help of the assistance of Allah.
We also learned that the actions that draw a person closer to Allah are all has an
oven has an so when you're doing an action that is hessen that is good, automatically you will draw closer to them.
We also learned that good deeds they erase whether there is bad deeds, Luca Philander. When, when a company Masato moussaka
so when you perform these good deeds, as a result of that, your sins will be wiped out. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, That's fair to say, he hasn't added them who have that if you perform a say, yeah, if you do something that is bad, then follow it up with an action that is good, because that good action will erase the bad action. So good deeds, they erase bad deeds.
We also learn that the reward that a loss pantalla has kept in Ghana, it includes the pleasure of all of one census.
Because if you look at it, first of all, it is Jen net vastness. And when there is a lot of vastness, doesn't that bring pleasure to your eyes.
If you're in a small this small place, doesn't that affect your eyes. Like for example, you're staring at the screen.
I mean, reward could also be that there's a screen and on that screen, you see beautiful things, but it's actually vastness. So the reward includes measure of all a one senses, that it's visual, it's also audio, how that there's digital and tactile and how and when rivers are flowing, obviously, there's going to be sound, there's also going to be sound. So the reward that Allah has prepared is not just the reward through food, or the reward through just looking at something. But it's such a word that will please and satisfy all of the senses of the person.
We also learned that a person who does not fulfill the promise that he has made with Allah, Who does not fulfill his obligations, then he will go straight, he will get lost. If you don't do what you're supposed to do, you're gonna get lost. You're not going to get to the destination.
When you take a road, when you go on a road, you are heading towards your destination. But you have to follow all the rules. If you have the map in front of you, if you have
The routes in front of you, but you don't follow the route, are you going to get to the destination, you're not going to have to follow the route in order to get to the destination. What does the following route represent? fulfilling your obligations? doing your part, if you don't do your part, you're going to get lost. If you don't follow the instructions, you're going to get lost, you're not going to get to the destination.
So again, in this sort of the main theme is fulfilling the obligations that Allah subhanaw taala has placed upon us that Allah spent Allah has commanded us with
the commands as well as the prohibitions. If a person fulfills his obligations does what he's supposed to do, then there is reward that Allah Subhana Allah has promised and if a person neglects, then he is losing his way. He is breaking his contract. He's not going to get any benefit.
