I number 85
what Allah Medina Hoffmann Schreiber. And to the people of Meridian, we sent their brother Sharif to his center.
Who should ever SLM as a messenger.
The word median
is the name of the tribe. And it's also the name of the area where these people used to live the territory in which they lived.
So the word Medina applies to the area where they live, and it also applies to the people.
Who were these people? They were the descendants of Meridian, who was the son of Midian, who was the son of Abraham, and he said,
so these people were of the descendants of Abraham are Acela.
And they lived in the area between Jordan and Egypt, close to the Red Sea.
These people, they were tradesmen, and they were
very successful in their trade in their business. And it is said that they were on the religion of Ibrahim Ernest center, and they remained upon it for at least 500 years. For at least 500 years, they were up on the heat. But as time went by, they went farther from the dean. And they were indulged in many crimes, especially with regards to trade and business.
So also penalties sent a messenger to them, whose name was sure abrahamsson
What was his full name? It was charade even me keel even? Yes. juf.
And he has been mentioned in the Quran 11 times.
I notice over here that the people of Medina they were the descendants of Abraham or the center
of the descendants of Abraham was who else
who else the Bani Israel and among them was who was our listener?
But Trevor in Islam, he was sent before musasa.
In time he came before musasa he was not sent to the Bani Israel but rather he was sent to the people of Medina. And musasa was sent to go
to the Bani Israel.
Cherry Bernie Sam is also known as Hollywood MBA.
Who is healthy?
speaker. Why? Because he spoke very eloquently and very forcefully
with his people, in order to convince them
every argument they presented, he refuted it. He gave an answer to that.
So Allah subhanaw taala sent him as a messenger to the people of Medina. Why did he say, Allah? He said, Yeah, Colin Mira, Budo la ha, all my people worship Allah, meaning worship only and why? Because men are coming in at zero, you have no other God. Other than him. You have no other God beside him. He is your only God,
or the Jets come by Hinata Mira become a clear evidence has come to you from your Lord. Meaning Allah subhanaw taala has presented the proof and the evidence is of truth which I have brought to you.
It's very clear that I am indeed a messenger to you.
Therefore, what should you do change your ways.
And other things that you must do? are first of all, for Oh full Kayla well means
that fulfill the measure and the weight.
fulfill the measure, and the balance.
As I mentioned to you earlier that these people were tradesman.
And when it comes to business, when it comes to trade, when it comes to buying and selling, it's very easy to cheat other people. Because when you cheat other people, that's when you make a lot of money.
So these people had also fallen into this crime of cheating others and making a lot of money through that.
So Cherie Blair has told them that oh full Kayla, well, Misa. When you're buying when you're selling, make sure that you fulfill the measure and the balance
the word cane as you know, some of the routes that are skofja them and it's used for measuring length or volume.
And then on the other hand is from was a known and it's used for knowing the weight of something, determining the weight of something
means and is also used for the tool through which you obtain the weight of something.
So for Okinawa, Amazon, in your transactions, make sure that you complete the case and the reason What does it mean?
For instance, if you are measuring a certain length and you're measuring it according to
Let's say a strip of metal that you have that make sure you completed not halfway through, not three fourths of the way.
Don't even introduce, no, make sure that you complete it, make sure you fulfill it. Overall, Kayla will meezan
whatever but also NASA and do not reduce for the people I share a home they're things
that also is from the veterans bear horsin box.
And box is to decrease something.
What does it mean to decrease it is to give less than you
is to give less than you, you're supposed to give a particular amount. But what does buffs mean to give less.
For instance, a person is selling 500 grams, that's what it says on the packaging.
But he's actually giving 455
This has what box to give less than you.
And box is done both in the tangible sense as well as the intangible sense.
In the tangible sense the example that I mentioned to you, instead of giving 500 up for 55 that is reducing something that is physical
in the intangible sense, it is to not give to the other what they deserve
to reduce in the rights of the other
the rights that they deserve. It is to not give them that.
So now the hostile NASA Shere Khan don't reduce for the people there are things whether it is in quantity, or it is in weight in length or volume or anything, make sure whatever you're giving is what is there right what is due to them.
For example, many times people take the price of something original and they sell what something that is fake
or for instance, they will take the price of that which is fine that which is not faulty. And in reality, what are they selling something that is faulty,
they will sell something by changing the expiration date on it.
Or if something has expired, they will not take it off the shelf, and people are going to purchase it without realizing that particular thing has expired.
This is selling something while causing loss to the other, not giving him What is his do.
milk when selling milk, what does the person do? He adds water to it to increase the volume.
All of these are examples of box. And remember, this is all deliberate. This is all deliberate. It's not by mistake, this is deliberate.
So let the console nessa share
the things that people are buying from you, whatever is there help, don't use them in any way.
Want to see to fill out the and do not spread corruption in the earth bar that is left here after its reformation after its restoration, after everything has been set in order, don't correct things. As I mentioned to you earlier in the story of Luther his center, that what his facade after his law going against the Fatah
Allah subhanaw taala has set a particular way he has taught a particular way if a person goes against that, then what is that for said? So that helps you to fill out the bar there is law here
that you can hire a law firm that is best for you. What is best for you?
Meaning whatever I have told you following these commands is something that is best for you
in control meaning if you're truly believers.
So what does it show that a man is not just about fixing our bed but Eman is also about fixing our character. Our dealings with others, our relationships with others
while at our peril do and do not sit be equally sirata on every
other crimes that these people used to commit. What
that first of all, they used to sit on various pathways, on roads on highways. And they used to harm the people who travel how
by scaring them by threatening them by looting their caravans.
So, basically, they had adopted several incorrect ways to make money.
They will treat one another they will not give the hacker one another.
And they will also plunder and loot.
So let the for loop equaliser thing, do not sit on F
reput to reduce you all threaten to reduce from the root letter as well and then from the word worried and what is worried me threat.
So if you sit on every bath, what are you doing? You are threatening the people.
Candy syrup over here has been understood in two ways. First of all,
tangible physical path physical road, whether it is a street or a highway or a road. So don't sit on every road, harassing the travelers by frightening them attacking their caravans seizing their belongings, killing them, or demanding tax from them, just because they're passing by ersity
so that the horror lubicon this rotten turiddu not threatening the people threatening their safety, threatening their security.
Secondly, kolesar often has also been understood as intangible settled, meaning every sort of happy ending
every way of health and
that when there are people who are trying to follow them.
For instance, if a person is trying to give sadaqa or another person is trying to pray, and other person is trying to be fair in his dealings, don't come in his way and obstruct him from performing that act of worship.
Don't harass him, don't make obedience difficult for him to understand that the ferodo because these are often to Arizona threatening people how that first of all, stopping those people who are traveling.
Secondly, creating hindrances for those who are trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala
What does it do? And you are stopping. unsavoury the left from the way of
which people, man am and Avi, those who have believed in him.
So those people who believe in sure abrahamsson the believers, they were opposed by the rest of the people.
The rest of the people would not let them worship Allah. They will not let them follow the deen. Just as in Makkah, what was happening.
People were accepting Islam.
And if they try to recite the Quran, if they try to press harder,
they were stopped, wasn't it? They were opposed. They were threatened. They were hindered. Life was made very difficult for them. To the extent that avocado did Arnhem, when he would recite the Quran out loud, and the women and the children, the slaves, they would rather listen to his recitation, he was stopped from doing so. And he was forced to stop and he was threatened as well. And it was almost as though he had left Makkah, but then he was forced to come back.
So what so don't want to be the lead, you're stopping people from the way of Allah meaning from the religion of Allah, which people meant to be, especially those who have believed in Allah.
Whatever the hoonah and at the same time, you're trying to seek it to be a virgin, to be crooked.
You're looking for faults in the deen to present it as something crooked for the people so that those who have not believed they don't accept Islam. They don't accept the novela.
So basically, their opposition was against the believers. They wouldn't let them practice the deen.
And at the same time, they were also doing such things through which they would prevent others from accepting the deed.
And this is exactly what the people have uncovered.
Those people who had believed life was made extremely difficult for them extremely difficult.
And those people who were not accepted the team, for instance, on the pilgrims, they would come and visit Makkah, they would come to perform Hajj or Umrah. They were told about such negative things or incorrect things false propaganda,
as a result of which, they wouldn't even dare to listen to the Quran, except for a very few.
And these were their efforts to stop people from the way of Allah, those who had believed and also those who have not believed the Buddha religion. So do you understand what the Sedona and Sabina lagman M and Abby was being used against believers with a balloon or a virgin was being used it and to those who have not yet accepted
what Kuru And remember, if kuntum kalila and when you were very few.
And remember, when people are very few in number, they are vulnerable. They're scared for their safety.
fucka Thoreau calm so he increased you. He gave Baraka in your muscle. He multiplied your numbers. He increased you in numbers. So this is a huge favor upon you from a loss
Senator, that you were only a few people at the beginning. But Allah multiplied you and you're so many today.
One Zulu and look kafer Kanaka battle move city. Look at how as a consequence of those people who spread corruption before you look at those nations who passed on before you, how Allah subhanaw taala punish them for the wrongs that they committed.
Now, over here, the story of the people of shame has been mentioned.
But who is being indirectly addressed? It was the people of Mecca.
Because the situation in Makkah was very similar, very similar.
The believers were being prevented from following their Deen and at the same time, the rest of the people who would come to perform pilgrimage, they were also hindered from accepting the the prophets Allah Madison was presenting.
Instead of thought I number 91. We learn although Yes, you are a man of the hookah theorem in meta cool. They said, Oh, Sherry, we do not understand much of what you say.
Well, in Eleanor, aka female very fair, and indeed, we consider you among us as weak.
This is how they responded to him.
Instead of accepting what he was saying, What did they say? We don't understand what you're saying. We don't get it. And if you think of it, whatever he was saying, isn't it quite simple and clear?
how clear instructions Korea possibly given, then these?
There is explaining to them, don't do this. Don't do this. Because if you do this, then you're stopping people from the way of law. And what is their response? We don't get it. We don't understand much of what you say.
And in fact, we see was very weak,
Willow Dara, Taka rajim. Naka, Wilma and Darlene a beer Aziz.
And if not for your family, we would have stone you to death. And you are not do us one respected.
So over there as well, at the time of shrayber, this time as well.
There was a tribal system.
And what is a tribal system?
That if somebody belongs to your family, if somebody belongs to your tribe, you don't harm them, even if what they're doing is wrong. Or even if you don't agree with them.
So Sherry berry said, I'm the different with him, but they wouldn't dare harm him. Why Lola Tucker, if it was not your family, it was his family, it was the fact that he belonged to that tribe.
Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well, the people opposed him.
But what was the only reason that prevented them from harming him? The fact that he was from the tribe of kadesh the fact that he was one of them.
Were in Canada, if atomico Sherry Bredesen said that if there is a group from among you, which group Am I know who have believed, believe it or sell to be in that which I have been sent with?
And on the other hand, what if I don't and there is a group, another group, lamb, you may know who have not believed? What is it show that the people had been divided into two groups.
One group was those people who believed in the teachings of sherry Bredesen.
And the other group was of those people who did not believe. So what did she say? When there was this huge division in the society? That first will be patient?
Had the until, yeah, como la Vina until Allah judges between us well, a hydro Hackman, and he is the best of judges. Why does he say this hospital? And who is he saying this to?
First of all, if he's saying this to everyone, the believers as well as the disbelievers, then hospital gives a sense of a threat that just wait. Just wait until the judgment of a las panatela comes and we see who is upon truth and it was not upon truth.
That Yes, there is a huge rift in the society. There's a great division in the society. There is a great split, one group is going one way and the other group is going one way, who is right who is wrong, just wait and see what happens.
Secondly, fast below if he is commanding the believers. That Yes, this division is creating difficulty for you that there are people who are opposing you, but be patient, persevere are believers. Until when? until Allah judges between us for he is the best of judges.
We learned in sort of Eunice I 109 Allah subhanaw taala says what the Verma you have a lake
Was Smith had a common law and follow what is revealed to you are profits out of order, sell them and be patient, until Allah will judge will hierarchy me, and he is the best of judges.
Because sometimes when the truth comes to the society to the people, there is a division. Sometimes this division is even within a family. And that makes life difficult for all people. Yes, it does. But in particular, it makes it difficult for the believers. Why? Because they have changed their ways. And people are telling them, why are you doing this? Why are you not following our ways. But what is needed at that time?
until Allah subhanaw taala, brings about his judgment, manifesting the truth, and punishing those upon fossa.
Or el mundo, the eminent one said,
which Muller alleging a stack of a Roman comedy, those who are arrogant from his people,
when Srebrenica them saw this division, and he said that Allah will judge between us who is upon the truth and who isn't.
The people, especially the leaders, they began threatening you.
They began to threaten him, they began to threaten the believers that do not say this, or else we will expel you from this land.
Don't say that some punishment will descend upon those who are upon falsehood, if you say so, you're not welcome here. You can leave we're going to expel you from here.
And this is exactly what the people of Lutheranism also said to him. that either you assimilate or you leave.
So these Mullah also which Mullah and Edina stockwork were very arrogant, who took a lot of pride in their culture in their norms. This admin called me obvious people, Lenovo region Nokia shuaibu, OSHA, we're going to expel you,
one Latina America, and those people who have believed with you mean curry Athena from our town,
I know we're going to expand you, either you have to leave o or letter or don't know, female Latina shorty, you will definitely return to our creed.
The rune from the veterans I in well, then are they,
which means literally do return to revert.
So either you leave, if you don't want to change your ways. And if you wish to stay here, then you have to assimilate,
then you have to be like us. You have to adopt our ways. You have to return to our creed. You cannot be different from us. You don't have this freedom, to choose your religion to choose your faith to choose your ways. No. If you want to stay here, you have to be like us.
Color he said, who said Jerry Brown isn't unresponded Oh, no corner carrying,
even if we dislike it, even if we detest the fact that we have to leave or we have to change back to your ways. Still you enforce this to what kind of freedom is this? What kind of society is this where people don't have the freedom to choose their religion to choose their ways of worship.
I went to Khan Academy instead he will force us
Karina is a clone of Gary and his from the newsletter scaffold Corolla, which is to bear something on pleasing to bear something that is unpleasant and being forced by some external pressure.
So someone is forcing you someone is pressurizing you to do something to bear something that you find very unpleasant.
This is what Corolla is. So carry one who is unwilling one who is reluctant to do something. And he's being forced by someone who's being pressurized by someone to do it.
So even if we dislike to return to your ways, still, you're going to force us
this can never happen. We will never fall under your pressure and adopter, but we're never going to adopt your path.
Or therefore I know why. Because if we do so and if we leave our ways, then what's going to happen?
That in fact, we are fabricating an ally against Allah, Gibbon ally.
When in erdenet, if we return female ethical into your religion into your creed, bar, there is an agenda Lucha minha after Allah has saved us from it, Magennis from the roof veterus noon jeonhwa
if we were to go back to your ways, after Allah saved us from it
Then what are we doing? We're fabricating a lie against
because we're saying that what we were doing was wrong.
If a person is an unbeliever,
he accepts Islam.
And then soon after he leaves Islam,
what is he showing?
What is he demonstrating that Islam is not the right religion?
If a person starts anything, for instance, a person says, I'm not going to eat a particular kind of food anymore. I'm never gonna have wheat in it.
For whatever reason, he says, Oh, it's very unhealthy. Some people say, oh, milk is very unhealthy for you don't have it become a vegetarian, no meat.
So a person starts doing this. And after a few months, he goes back to it. What is he showing?
What is he showing that whatever he was doing temporarily, was wrong.
There wasn't right. Therefore, he changed back to his waist.
So if we were to go back to cover, go back to Jay Hillier after Islam, then we're fabricating a lie against Allah, that Allah never sent down this Deen. Whereas in reality, Allah did send down this D. We will be fabricating Alliance Allah.
And we would never do that. What do we learn from this? that a person who accepts Islam, especially a person who learns about the deen, he must have perseverance he must have is to karma.
Because if he keeps on this behavior of starting something, and then leaving something and then doing it again and leaving it again, what does it show
that he's treating me in a very non serious manner, in a very non serious way? He's not serious about it, or the dean is not that serious, that it should be taken seriously. It's not worth anything that it should be adopted seriously.
Many people just start learning the Quran desktop, then they started and then they stop for you know, what is that a person has a genuine reason. But the other is, I noticed that I wasn't enjoying anymore, therefore, I started something else.
And then I thought maybe I should go back to the camera. But then again, I wasn't enjoying any more. So I started something else.
Or a person starts to her job and after some time, she takes it off. And then she puts it on and she takes it off. What is this? making a mockery out of it? A person grows a beard, cuts it off, reduces it completely. Then he grows it again and then he reduces it again. What is this? A person is constantly making a joke out of the D
or the F trainer I don't know he can even so a diary. A person who is serious about the deen a person who is learning the deen must have perseverance. He shouldn't be changing his ways all the time.
Because if he does so, then he is making a mockery of the DEA
or the starliner or Allah He can even and in fact he is deceiving other people through his behavior through his fluctuation.
