One Medina Tohoku Masjid and later on, and there are those hypocrites who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm,
causing harm to, to the Muslims to Islam,
worker front and also disbelief, meaning to strengthen disbelief
and also, what a free convenient meaning and to create division among the believers. What if sodden, and as a station for who lemon hearable la hora Sula, whom in public for whoever had waged war against Allah and His Messenger
while I actually found in erdenet, lol Hausner, and they will surely swear that we intended only the best will La Jolla shadow in the home locality Boone and Allah testifies that indeed such people are liars.
In the previous if we have been learning about the various groups of people, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to the book, and he came back, there were some people who were coming up to him and presenting various excuses false excuses for not having participated in the battle with him. And this group was a vote of the hypocrites. However, all those people who remain behind were not only hypocrites, we learned about another group of people who were they
who remain behind only because of laziness.
Some of them, they came, and they apologized immediately. And they're the ones who tied themselves up to the pillars of the machine and they said, we're not going to release ourselves, nobody's going to release us, except for who? The Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam.
And there was another group of sincere believers who were three a number whose measure was deferred, which inshallah we will learn in the next lesson.
Over here, we learn about a group of certain hypocrites. What did they do? They built a Masjid in Koba.
And apparently, they showed as if they were doing something very righteous.
Building a Masjid constructing a Masjid is indeed a very righteous deed. If you ever hear that a Masjid is being constructed, immediately you feel good about it.
And even if you cannot donate a lot, you want to make sure that you contribute a little bit. You have your share in it
and you spread the word that a machine is being built, there are fundraisers out so much is done. Why because building a machine is a very noble thing to do.
However, these monopolies they built this machine, not for good reasons. Why did they build that mustard in Cuba?
for their our
to cause harm, and also out of cover, and also the three combined meaning and also inside the lemon hearable la hora Sula, for reasons are mentioned over here.
Do you understand this ayah. Let's look at some historical background.
Before the prophets are a lot of Southern migrated to Medina, there was a man from the tribe of huzar Raj, Raj was the local tribe of Medina. There was a man named of Amish. What was his name, Abu army.
And he was known as a Brahmin alive, who is
a monk. Someone who is very righteous, very devoted, and especially the word raw hip is used for a Christian monk.
So he was an Arab. He was a local of Medina. However, in the time of yahaya, meaning before the prophet SAW the Lotus Adam came to Medina, he had become a Christian. He had embraced Christianity. And he also used to read the scriptures.
So he wasn't just a Christian, but he was a learned Christian, not just learn it, but he was also a devout worshipper.
So just imagine his scholar, a devout worshiper learn it
and because of that, people really used to look up to him. And he was considered as one of the notables from among the hundreds. And he was known for his piety for his righteousness in Medina.
And the same person Abrahamic, he was the father of hands Ella Alito, who was hands on anything you remember about it.
He was the one who became the receiver
the one who was given a bath, by who by the angels because he was martyred right after he got married, and he didn't even get a chance to take a whistle.
So when his wife told the prophets or a lot of sudden that he was in the state of Geneva, he said that he is being raised by who? By the angels. So he became a vasila Malaika.
And he is the same Sahabi who when he came to the profits, let alone seven he said, Natha handler,
that handler has become a hypocrite. And he said How? He said, because when I'm in your image, this when I'm in your gathering, my Eman is so high.
And when I'm away from you, my mind is different. So he said, this is not hypocrisy. This is just a different level of humor.
So our army was a father of hensler.
Now who was this? What did he do?
When the prophet SAW the Lotus and migrated to Medina, and everybody in Medina, they turned towards him, believing in Him, accepting Him as their leader.
There were some people in Medina who did not like this, that everyone's attention was being diverted to who Mohammed said about Islam.
And they felt jealous, they became very envious, and they took it as a great offense, it really hurt their ego.
And amongst these people was who have to live and obey. As we learned earlier,
he was at the height of you can say, the political pyramid he was about to become a king of Medina.
So he was the political rival of the Prophet, sort of
the political opponent.
And on the other hand, a Brahmin was known for his piety for his righteousness. So he became the spiritual opponent of the prophet SAW the light.
On one hand was of the light innovate, on the other hand, was a bar on
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam invited both of them to Islam. What did the lemon obey do? He became a Muslim outwardly, but in his heart, he kept hidden and muddy for the Muslims, for the prophets, little notice.
However, a barometer, what did he do?
The Prophet said, a lot of them called him and he invited him to Allah, he recited the Quran to him.
But what did Obama do? He refused to obey. He asked many questions, he was given all the answers, he did not accept.
And instead, he said to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that whoever comes against you, in order to harm you, that person is going to get my support.
That person is going to get my help.
He was not ready to accept Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in Medina, especially as a religious leader, as a spiritual leader. Because if he was accepted as a religious leader, nobody would look at a barometer anymore. Nobody would consider him at all. So he became extremely envious. And from the very beginning, he began opposing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam openly
or the livan obey did not oppose openly. But our army, what did he do? He opposed openly, he showed his enmity, he demonstrated it.
And what happened? It is said that at the Battle of better at the Battle of better when the Muslims were victorious, about Ahmed he became miserable.
He became extremely upset, because he thought that the matter of Muslims would soon be over 300 Muslims are going to fight the machine who are three times their number, they're going to be finished. But when the Muslims returned victorious, of our army was miserable, and he left Medina.
He couldn't stay there anymore.
He left Medina and he went and joined the machine in Makkah.
He went and lived amongst who the machine were in Makkah.
And over there, he began inciting the mushrikeen not just the machine of macabre all over Arabia, to come and fight the prophets of the Lord.
And because of this reason, the mushrikeen of Makkah, they came and fought the Muslims at birth,
the year after the Battle of but they came in for the Muslims at birth. And Abram It was a great supporter.
And he in fact, participated in the Battle of Ohio against the Muslims.
You know how he dug holes in the ground? Why? So that somehow the profit sort of artisan would fall in one of them. And he did.
Do you remember how the prophet SAW a lot of that and fell in one of the holes in one of the ditches and he hurt himself really badly. he sustained several injuries because of falling into that
So barometer is the one who dug the several holes so that the prophets are a lot of them would fall in one of them and he would die as a result of that. However, Allah saved his messenger. And of Ahmed, he was defeated. How that although the Muslims apparently suffered a defeat at or hurt, but Obama, he realized that these Muslims are able to fight the machine. So he didn't stop there. He went out of Makkah, and he began inciting various Arab tribes against the prophets of Allah.
And then the Battle of trench took place, the Battle of his app.
And, you know, in the Battle of our sub what happened, it wasn't just the machine of Makkah. It was various Arab tribes from all over Arabia, who came and attacked the Muslims in Medina,
who was behind all of this, Mr. Ahmed, he is the one who incited all of these people.
But what happened at the Battle of cyber who became victorious? The Muslims.
Now, Obama, he continued with his mission with his efforts to incite people against the Muslims.
But eventually, when Makkah was conquered,
and after that the people have a thought if even were defeated, and remember the people of a pif, who were the
the tribes of housing and Salif. They were the rivals of the Croatian Mecca. So when they were defeated, what happened there was no other tribe that could stand against the Muslims. So he knew that the power of the Arabs has been finished, they can not fight against Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
he had given up on that. So what did he do? That he stopped there? No.
He went to Rome.
He went outside now.
He went International.
He went across borders. He went to Rome, and he joined the Romans, who were the Romans, they were Christians as well. Just like a bomb, he was also a Christian.
And when he went there, he went, and he incited the Romans against the Muslims. And it's actually because of this reason that the expedition to the book took place as well.
As we learned earlier about the Battle of Mota, that had also taken place because of Obama, his activities.
And now again, the expedition to the book took place. Why? Because of his incitements.
And because of this reason, the Battle of the book, The expedition to the book took place as well.
Now, why am room What did Obama do?
he communicated with his friends in Arabia, especially those in Medina.
As we know that there were some people in Medina who appear to be Muslim, but in reality, they were not Muslim.
So what did he do? He wrote letters to several of his people in Medina, but we're hypocrites. And he told them, that he is going to bring the Romans to Medina, to fight against the Muslims, and he's going to expel them from Medina.
Because remember the hypocrites, they wanted all of this to be over one day, so that things could go back to normal. They could continue with their normal lives.
So he said, I promise you very soon I'm going to bring the Romans with me. I'm going to come attack Medina. And these Muslims are going to be out of here. We're going to finish them off, we're going to expel them. So the hypocrites they were very happy about that.
But our Allah told them
that you have to make a center you have to make a center for what?
So that you can collect your weapons over there.
Similarly, when I send my people they can come in visit somewhere, and you all can get together and have some meetings. And obviously if you get together in one of the houses, people are going to find out.
So what should you do? You should build a Masjid.
Build a Masjid so that outwardly it appears to be that you're doing something very righteous.
When you're in the masjid, you're busy learning the deen teaching the deen etc.
However, in reality, you're not studying the Quran. You're not learning the deen. What are you doing? You're discussing as to how you're going to get together and attack the Muslims.
So what are these mythical new
12 hypocrites 12 hypocrites in number they built a Masjid.
But where did they build this Masjid? They built it next to the masjid in Cobra.
This is not mosquito number three, which must be this must have tober
and they finished building it before the prophet SAW
absurdum left for the book. So before the Prophet left for the book, they had completed the construction of the masjid.
And in order to show their good intentions, what did they do? They went to the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
and they invited him to pray in the masjid.
They invited him to come and pray in their mustard. Why? So that they could show to the people that this mustard has been approved by the prophets, little Addis Ababa.
And they said to him, that we have built this Masjid. Why for the week people, for those who are ill, for those who are unable to go to Monster Cobra, especially on rainy days
so when it's very rainy, it's going to be difficult for the week for the ill for the disabled to go all the way to machette Cobra so we have built this Masjid. Why don't you come and pray here? It's such a good new year that we have come and pray here. That's this Masjid. Everybody will come and pray here. It'll be very nice of you. If you could do that. The prophets had a lot of fun. What did he say? He said in narla suffering, what I can eat our journey inshallah. Right now we're busy with our journey, but inshallah when we will return then we'll see.
They said there is quite a bit difficult for people to go to much at Cobo when it's raining. So we have built this machine to make it easier for people.
But the fact is that this machine was so close to Masjid Toba, that it didn't make sense.
If somebody can go to this machine that they had built, they could also go to machines.
But they outwardly displayed a lot of righteousness, that look we're doing something so good. What a charitable deed we're doing. We're building a machine.
So the profits are a lot of Saddam said he will come and pray there later.
But when the prophets or the Lotus Adam came back from the book, and he was approximately one or two days away,
These Ayah toil revealed.
These ayat were revealed, informing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the real purpose behind the construction of this machine. Why these people constructed the machine.
And in these is the profits out of Lotus and it was also forbidden from praying in this Masjid.
And the prophets are allowed to sell them What did he do?
Before he got to Medina even he sent some people
amongst whom were
army had been second as well as why she was washing.
He is the one who killed Hamza for the downhill, but he became a Muslim. Or she became Muslim afterwards. To the prophets, a lot of them sent a group of Muslims to go to this Masjid and bring it down to burn it. Why?
Why? Because it was not built for a good purpose. It was not built for good purpose. So he sent them go and destroy this machine. So they went and destroyed the machine.
Even our boss will get on him. He said about this ayah that it is referring to some people of the unsolved to whom abou army said, build a Masjid and prepare whatever you can have power and weapons, for I am headed toward Caesar, the emperor of Rome to bring Roman soldiers with whom I will expel Muhammad and his companions.
When they build their Masjid, they went to the prophet and said to him, we finished building our Masjid and we would like you to pray in it and invoke Allah for us for his blessings.
However, these ayat were revealed, forbidding the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from going to this Masjid.
So what's the lesson in this incident for us? What's the main lesson? What's coming into your mind?
a righteous deed on the parent may seem to be extremely righteous, very bias. However, if the intention is not correct,
if the Nia is not proper, then that deed does not hold any weight. It does not carry any weight before a loss of
building a muscle requires a lot of effort, a lot of money and it's one of the best deeds to do.
However, if the Nia is not correct, even that deed does not carry any weight.
If you look at a Warhammer, he was one man. But he moved the Arabs and he moved the Romans against you, against the Muslims, one person he created so much fitna
and we think when it comes to doing something good, we're only one person. How can we do anything? Even one person can do a lot.
It depends on what you want to do, and how badly you want it.
But look at how much he did. Also, one very important thing
lesson is that we must not get fooled by the outward righteousness of people.
It's possible that a person displays or a person appears to be extremely righteous. Perhaps he's a spiritual leader. Perhaps he's a very devout worshipper. They spend a lot of time in Riba. However, we should not get fooled by their display of righteousness.
If the dealings of such a person with other people are not good
if they don't deal with other people, in a good way, in a proper way,
if they're creating this unity, if they're selfish, only concerned about themselves, then remember that their agenda is not to worship Allah soprano data, rather, it is something else.
Let's look at these if no
one levina Tohoku, and those people who took
how many people were there 12 hypocrites. This group of hypocrites who took meaning who built must didn't a Masjid. What is a Masjid literally a place where such that is done. And technically mustard is the place that is constructed. Why? For the better of a law for your karma to Salah so that the five daily prayers are established in that place. So those people who took the masjid, why who built my [???]? For what reason? First of all, there are going to cause harm.
There are some new veterans, but rah rah from the word better, what does better mean?
But of the harm? What does that mean that
there are is to cause harm to someone.
But it is harm. But there are ways to cause harm to someone to inflict some harm on someone. It is also said that better is to cause harm to someone better off, we're talking about oh no okay. borrower is to cause harm to someone, while at the same time a person himself is taking advantage.
You understand, borrower is that a person inflicting harm on the other, but by inflicting that harm, he is at least benefiting
if for example, if a person cheats another with regards to his money, so one person he suffers financial loss, but the person who is causing the loss, what does he get? financial gain.
This is what borrow. But there are is when a person causes harm to the other. And at the same time, he causes harm to himself.
He does not take any benefit himself. This is what there are is
like for example, the person bumps his car into another person's car.
Now he's definitely harmed the other person. But has he harmed himself as well? Definitely.
So those people who built the masjid to cause harm, they thought they were only going to cause harm to who? To the Muslims, but in reality, we're causing harm to who else themselves as well.
How are they causing harm?
The purpose of constructing this Masjid was not really to help the people.
It was to create mischief and disorder when there was peace in the society.
When people were living in an organized fashion, in a civil way, with bees, what do they want?
Some kind of disorder. This was a little second reason as to why they built the machine worker front and out of disbelief in disbelief or as disbelief
what is the mean by cough, cough or is disbelief and cough run is understood in two ways. First of all, to strengthen cough for the service of cough
to promote cough to bring benefit to cover.
This is the reason as to why they constructed the machine. Generally, massages are constructed Why?
To support the dean to spread the dean to serve the dean.
However, this mustard was built not to serve the dean but to serve what gopher to strengthen coffee.
Secondly, what confront is understood as out of disbelief in disbelief.
It was their disbelief that led them to constructing this machine.
Third reason what a three and two cause division between who by many in between the believers which believers the believers
The reason as to why they constructed this monster was to create division amongst the people amongst the locals.
The fear from their newsletters fell off for Raka, ricotta free, which is to create division to separate people.
How did they cause division between people by constructing this machine?
If you look at it, if there is a machine, and right next to it are very close to it, another machine is built five times a day the Salah has been established.
The people are the same. It's not that the people speak different languages in the same locality. So what's going to happen?
The 100 people who are going to pray in one Masjid are now going to be split. One group of people is going to go pray in one Masjid, another group of people is going to go play in another Masjid.
What is that going to do?
It's going to create disunity amongst people. The efforts are going to be divided rivalries will begin.
One person is going to say my Imam is better. The other is going to say my Imam is better. Our must see this better. No, our machine is better. There's going to be constant competition. Then people are not going to be striving to spread the deen but rather they will be striving Why?
To make their mustard more successful not to make the deen more successful.
So when this mustard was constructed, it created a division between the believers the believers of Oba
what in Sodom. The fourth reason behind the construction of this mustard was as a station for who lemon Hallo Bala hola Sula, who for the one who waged war against Allah and His Messenger, who is this person who waged war against Allah and His messenger of war Amish and he was known as a barometer of law.
But now he is known as a barometer and facets.
The sinful the disobedient, the rebel, limb unhearable lava was hula hoop.
Now the question is, when did he wage war against Allah and His messenger?
Not once many times, from the Battle of 200 up
to her name and also later he waged war against Allah and His Messenger
mean abou from before before when?
Before the construction of the masjid.
These are the reasons behind the construction of this Masjid. Allah subhanaw taala says what I actually found and surely they will definitely swear. Who then when African that when you will ask them, why did you construct this machine?
They're going to swear that in our dinette we only wanted a little Hersman we did not intend except goodness. The only reason why we constructed this must it was for Hostnet What does that mean?
That which is very good, that which is best.
And by and hustla what they mean is unfair, a little hustler, a good deed, we only constructed the machine to do a very good deed. Because constructing a monster, after all, is a very virtuous deed.
Similarly, Ursula is understood as a law that will her SNA that we only intended a good intention.
We didn't build this monster to divide the Muslims. We wanted to serve the humanity. We wanted to serve people. We wanted to show compassion on the Messiah keen in rain and heat. And also so that Muslims would have more room. We were being cramped in one Masjid, we thought let's make another Masjid
in Aradhana ilhas Now we only wanted something good.
But what does Allah say? Well, lovely eyeshadow. But Allah bears witness that in gnome look at the bone. Indeed, such people are liars.
The excuse that they're offering, it's completely false. It's a lie. There is no reality to it. They didn't really intend something good. They intended the sort of they intended mischief.
So we learned in this ayah today, that if on the outward a person is doing something that's very righteous, then we must check we must analyze before supporting them before accepting what they're doing.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told not to support them not to go into that Masjid. Why? Because their motives were wrong.
Now, how do you know if somebody is really doing something good? You check what goals are they achieving, by the action that they're doing?
Is it first of all harming Muslims based on the actions that they're doing? Are they harm
Muslims, or are they benefiting Muslims? Because there are many people out there who claim to be serving the religion, who claim to be benefiting humanity? But do we have to check that? Are there activities as whether it is in the form of an organization or in the form of a newspaper or in the form of a blog or, you know, a website, or a book that they've written?
Anything that they're promoting anything that they're doing? Are they harming the Muslims through those efforts? Or are they benefiting the Muslims by those efforts?
If they're harming them, then they definitely have some other agenda. We must not support them. But if they're benefiting the Muslims,
then they must be supported.
Secondly, are they encouraging? Or are they encouraging email?
Are they inclined towards gopher? Or are they inclined towards a man? When people follow them?
Are they increasing in their email? Or are they increasing in their rebellion to a loss of habitat?
Thirdly, are their efforts causing a split amongst the people?
Are their efforts causing a disunity amongst people? And the fact is that anyone who starts anything, initially, there is a split, isn't it? So everybody does not accept immediately? Initially, there is a division.
However, what's their focus on? Is their focus on finishing those differences, eliminating those differences? Or is there focus on creating rifts in the society so that people become opponents of one another? They begin to hate one another dislike one another.
If anyone is instilling hatred in the hearts of people for others, then definitely their agenda is not to serve the deen. It's something else.
Fourthly, whatever they're doing, is that is support for a local? Or is it is shelter for a holy men.
Who are they supporting? Who are they promoting at the end of the day? Is it the people of gopher or is it the people of email?
If these four conditions, these four checkpoints, you can see
if they pass the test, then you must support them. If they don't, then it's better to stay away.
Now in this aisle, we learned that by constructing that machine, close to mustard Cobra, what are they doing?
Creating a division amongst the people?
So the question is, is it okay then, to construct a must sit close to another Master? Is it okay? Or is it incorrect?
At the time of our model, the learner
he passed a ruling during his Caliphate, which stated that a Masjid should not be built near another one. A must, it should not be built near another one, because of which the congregation of the first Masjid would get affected.
A mercy should not be built near another because of which the congregation of the first would get affected. So for example, if there is a machine, which is very huge, people barely fit in that machine.
Now what happens? People go and they make another motion? Is that going to affect the congregation of the first machine? It is because people are going to get split.
However, imagine the machine is not that big.
People don't find room over there. People don't find parking over there. Just imagine now Would it be okay to build another machine in the same locality? Of course, it would be something good because you create an ease for people.
Similarly, what if the people who go to a particular Masjid most of them they speak the same language
for instance, especially over here, people speak different languages.
And let's say one master this French.
Now a person comes he doesn't know where to French he wishes to learn.
But everything is taught in French where everything is starting to do
Don't they want some other place? Don't they need some other place where they can learn as well.
So if there is another Masjid, another center that is built close to it. However, the services that are offered over there, they're different from the services that are offered and the first one then it is completely permissible. It is okay. As long as there is no competition, there is no clash. There is no rivalry. And in fact both of them they support one another. They assist one another they cooperate with one another.
For example, you may have seen that summer sajit
they are literally on the same road. However whenever there is a big event for one of them. They should
parking, they share the halls.
Similarly, they offer different services for the people.
And with this, it's not that they're creating a division in the society rather, they're providing more services. There is no competition, there is no rivalry. They're only cooperating with one another.
That is permissible.
But if it's constructed with the intention of rivalry, then that is not permissible.
