Al-Maidah 41-50 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 42-43
Somewhere on in KDB, they are avid listeners to falsehood. Again, this is mentioned, for the purpose of emphasis. They love listening to lies. They love listening to lies. They love talking about lies. This is what their life revolves around. When they watch something, it's falsehood. When they read something, it's falsehood. When they listen to something, it's false it when they talk about something, it's false. It
literally, if you look at it sometimes, what are people generally talking about? What are people generally talking about, for example, the movie, they watched it for like three hours, then they read its review. They read about it for a very long time. And then they're talking to their friends about it for a long time as well. And if they hear an ad about it, or something, they're so interested about it.
And if somebody else is talking about that particular movie, we're so interested, the entire life revolves around what faltered
Just think about it. Just think about it. If there is a movie that you watch, two hours, three hours, three hours of your life gone in summer on it and cut it
maybe half an hour of your life again gone in talking about credit in reading about credit, ensuring that credit is your life that cheap did not give you this life for this reason that you wasted in falsehood that you watch one faulted after another falter and you talk one falter after another fault. It really is your life that cheap that you're wasting it in falsehood somehow Okay, maybe not as is mentioned again, emphasis is being made on the fact that they love listening to lies, I can own an assert, they eat that which is unlawful devours consumers, hearty consumers of that which is forbidden.
Can a can is different from akkad agonist is one who eats once but a can is one who eats a lot willingly happily with desire hard the consumer. So a calluna What are they consuming the sir? a surplus from their newsletters seen had and served is literally the peel that is peeled off from its root. Like for example, if you have an orange and you're feeding off the peel, when you're taking it off, then what happens? It completely comes off even the white part comes off the surface to build something off
and surf is actually used for haraam wealth,
any wealth that is obtained through her own means. Khan lumen helper meaning every unlawful wealth that is obtained through her own means Why? Because when a person eats her own, when a person gains her own a person earns her own. Then what's happening to his Dean. What's happening to his email.
It's being peeled off. Literally, it's been peeled off.
In challenge a little are off we will learn about Lavasa, taqwa, Lavasa, Taka Eman. And when a person consumes heroin that Libous is peeled off of him. That devices peeled off of him. And this kind of wealth also, what does it do? It removes the bar okay? It removes dressing it peels off the blessing from that wealth. So a colonialist sir, they are hearty consumers of that which is forbidden.
We know that the scholars of the Bani Israel, they would make a lot of money by issuing those verdicts that people liked by changing the law of the Torah.
Like for example, we know that the law of the Torah for adultery or fornication of married men and woman was what?
But they said this is so difficult for people. And there are our normal people as well who commit this crime. So we don't want to just do logic. So therefore what they would do as they would flog the person 50 lashes, they would black in his face, and they would put him on a donkey backwards. And then they would take him around the town around the city. And that was a punishment, that's it. So they change the law. And when they gave this verdict, obviously the person who was rich, the person who was very noble, he would give some money and this money would go in the pocket of that person who gave that verdict.
Because if he does not give those verdicts that people like then people are not going to come to my Masjid anymore. They don't come to my Masjid anymore. How am I going to get donations? I don't get donations, how am I going to survive? So sometimes, these scholars they would say such things that are completely against the deen Why?
In order to gain some worthy benefits, so Allah subhanaw taala says calluna
they're hearty consumers of that were distributed.
And there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Richard has mentioned that if a person he spends the Quran that he has earned on himself, then there is no blessing in it. And if a person gives it in charity, there is no reward for it. And if a person leaves it for his heirs, it is a piece of fire that he's leaving for his heirs.
So this is how haraam wealth asserts that there is no Baraka, no benefit, no blessing in it whatsoever.
And that in particular, he said, that search refers to bribe,
it refers to bribe what is great, what is that something that is not legal, you give some money, in order to make it legal for yourself.
Something that is not permissible. You give a bribe in order to make it permissible for yourself. So a Corona Lister notice, again, the theme of this order is follow the commands that Allah has given you. What are some of the ways that people adopt in order to avoid observing the commands of Allah?
What are some of the ways
that sometimes it will go to one person, if they don't like it, they'll go to another, they will basically look for that command, which suits them. And if something doesn't suit them, they will offer a bribe, take this, and give me a fatwa that suits me, a Corona desert,
for India, okay, then if they come to you, for combina, home, then you judge between them. This is a command to the profits out of all the sudden, that if these people meaning the hood, if they come to you, then judge between them are either gone home or turn away from them. Meaning you have the choice, you have the choice, it's up to you. If you want to judge between them, you may do so if you don't want to judge between them don't do so
well in toggled on home. And if you turn away from them, financial guru cache, then they cannot harm you at all.
Because you see, sometimes people come to you and you know that they're asking you not because really they want a solution. But they just want to see what you have to say.
And if what they're saying suits them, they're going to take it. And if what they're saying does not suit them, they're not going to take it. So in that case, would you waste your time telling them about what they should do and what they should not do advising them? Should you if you know that they're really going to waste your time, then don't advise them, don't tell them what to do. Because sometimes people have this habit, they will go to one person share their problems with them take their advice, what they tell them they don't listen to, then they go to another person see what they have to say, then they go to another person see what they have to say, until eventually they see
someone who will tell them what to do.
And in that process, they have wasted the time of so many people. This is why the choice is being given to the judge, that it's up to you. If you wish to decide between them, or you don't it's your choice. Fact combiner. home.
It's up to you whether you judge between them or you don't judge between them. And if you turn away from them for laniado ruca. They cannot harm you at all. We're in Hakata. And if you do decide to judge between the fact combine 100 because then judge between them how with justice, even if you're making the decision for someone who is worth worshiping, for someone who in that time he was not even a Muslim, then again, your judgment should be based on what best justice
in the law, you have been oxiclean indeed a lot loves those people who are just
what do we learn from this if first of all emphasis is being laid on the action of these people that there are some alternative credit? And this emphasis, what does it reflect severe warning against this evil trade against this evil action?
It has been mentioned two times, what does it reflect?
What does it reflect that this action is so reprehensible, it is so disliked by Allah subhanaw taala.
Secondly, there are severe warning against a closer, consuming heroin wealth.
Thirdly, the permission is being given to the judge that he has the choice if he wants to judge between people, or he does not want to judge between people. If there is some benefit in judging between them in giving a verdict, then do so. And if you see there's no benefit, this person is only wasting your time. He's not taking your speech seriously. Then don't waste your time move on.
Then we also learn from this ayah that about the obligation of passing judgment that is based on justice, that whatever verdict a person gives whatever decision a person gives it should be based on what justice
We also learned that along
So parents I love those who are just, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, The just will be seated upon culprits of light.
The just people, that just rulers, they will be seated upon puppets of light. Those who are fair with regards their judgment and their family, and those were under them. This is or this is recorded in, say, Muslim,
the profits or losses, and I'm also said that seven other persons whom Allah will give protection with his shade on the day when there will be no other shade except his shade. And who are they? One of them is the gesture.
So in the law, your humble knocks the thing? What does that teach us about the importance of justice, the reward of justice?
One more very important lesson that we learned from this is that a person who turns away from something that Allah subhanaw, taala, has allowed a person who leaves something that a lost parent, it has allowed him to leave, or he's leaving it at the command of Allah, then he will not suffer any harm.
Where do we learn that from
will endure the line home for millennia. Lucretia?
So if Allah has allowed you, if Allah has permitted you, if Allah has commanded you, that you leave something, then if you leave it, you turn away from it, you're not going to suffer any harm.
So for example, if you have the opportunity to earn something Haram, and you leave it, because you know, Allah has forbidden you, you're leaving it for the sake of Allah,
then know that you're not going to suffer any harm. It's possible that you suffer some harm, initially, at present. But in the long run, you're not going to suffer any harm.
Because many times when people are involved in earning how long, and they learn about the fact that what they're earning is actually how long then what happens? They have this fear that if I leave it, where am I going to make money from? How am I going to feed myself? Then in that case, what should the person remember that if I turn away from this, I'm not going to suffer any.
Maybe I will suffer harm now, but in the long run, no harm.

If you notice how some are mentioned twice, and why these people who have their law, but they still go to others for judgment. They know what the law is. But they still try to find someone who can give them a judgment that suits their desire. And when a person is so lost in the pleasures of this world, that his entire life revolves around credit, that he's watching Cathy's listening to credit, then obviously, he's going to find following the laws of Allah subhanaw taala difficult, because that's what he's listening to. That's what he's watching all the time. If he's watching, he's listening to heroin. He's gonna want to do the same thing as well. He's gonna want to be able to do
that as well. But he knows that his religion does not allow that. Then in that case, what is he going to do? He's going to find someone who's going to allow him to do that.
Like for example, if a person has always
watching people who have nice houses who are renovating their houses all the time and doing this doing that, buying clothes and buying shoes. And I mean, if this is something that he's watching all the time, naturally, he is going to have a desire to have his own house, even if he cannot afford it, naturally is going to have the desire to renovate his house and make it all nice and flashy, even if he cannot afford to do that. Because he has a desire, he's going to want somebody to allow him to do that. And then he's going to go to one person to another person to another person until eventually he will find somebody who's going to tell him, go ahead and do it. So when a person is
involved in cannabis all the time, then he wants to do that cannabis, well, he wants to do that cannabis work. And because religion does not allow that, what is he going to do? He's going to find somebody to allow him to do that. So there is a deep connection between some owner and catnip, and fatwa shopping, basically.
Then it was printed, it says okay for you hacky Monica. But how is it that they come to you? For what? For judgment?
And this is different RG. This is amazing. This is very surprising. How come they're coming to you, or profit sort of audition for judgment? We're in North Dakota, and they have the total, and in the Torah is fear hokhmah in the total is a law of Allah. So my utter willona then they turn away mimbar the radica. After that, after what? Meaning after you give the same judgment to them, the same ruling to them, they turn away. What will that mean? And such people are not at all believers, that this is very amazing that these people, they claim to be people off the book, they have their scripture.
And based on that they say, we don't need to believe in your Mohammed savasana.
This is what they said, We don't need you coluna. Wolf, we already have so much knowledge. So if you have so much knowledge, then how can you come into the prophets or romanism for judgment?
You understand what the problem is?
They didn't believe in him. They rejected him. They said we have our books, but still they were coming to him for judgment. So by saying how come they're coming to you for judgment, and they have the power, and the law is there. And when they came to you, you gave the same law, you give the same ruling, they turned away. Why? Because they're looking for something else. What's the problem? Such people are not at all believers. They neither believe in the prophethood of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, nor did they truly and wholly believe in their own scripture.
When they came to the prophets out of Addison for judgment, they didn't come with a man that we believe in you. Therefore, whatever you say, we're going to accept. And when they turn away from their scripture, what does that show that they don't actually believe in their scripture? Because if they actually believed in it, they wouldn't go to somebody else for judgment. So such people are not really believers. What it does is show to us that a person who asks a fatwa from the Mufti seeking glossa, seeking that which suits him, then he has resemblance to these people. And the one who seeks but what seeking roxxor meaning seeking such a fatwa that suits his desires, then such a person is
not really a believer, because if he was really a believer, then he would do some more and thorough. Not Okay, what do you say and what do you say and what do you say and to finally find something that suits his desires?
