So what it is that I'm doing in this time?
We'll call a Moosa anusara. Sam said, Yeah, call me all my people. Now who is he addressing? Those people who had believed in him?
He said to them, all my people in quantum momentum Villa he, if you have believed in Allah, then what should you do for LA Ito? kallu then upon him You all should trust, any control muslimeen if you are truly those who submit to Allah,
if you have believed in a lot, then who should you rely upon? Who should you trust upon Allah subhanaw taala if you are really Muslim,
Novus, he says in quantum our mental
and at the end in continuously mean,
first he man has mentioned the condition of women is mentioned. Then tawakkol is mentioned. And then Islam is mentioned. What is it?
That between a man and Islam is what?
What does it mean by that,
that Eman is when a person believes? He says I believe in Allah. I believe in the Messenger of Allah, I believe in the last day. This is what he meant.
Now, when a person has the mind does not have to act according to it does not have to submit himself outwardly as well.
Does he not have to do that? Of course he does. If a person says I believe that means he's going to have to pray to a loss of final data. But what if nobody allows that? What does a person need to do then?
He needs to trust upon Allah, that Allah will protect me. For example, a girl
she says that she believes in the Quran she believes in whatever Allah Subhana Allah has commanded her. Now what does she need to do? She needs to follow the commands as well.
All those commands is that she has to wear the hijab. But if she wishes to put it on, it's very difficult for her. What does she need to do trust upon Allah, so after a man comes to work, and then comes Islam.
So Eman is the inner state of the heart. And Islam is the outward appearance.
It's the outward submission, when a person submits when a person acts according to the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, and that can only be possible if a person trusts upon Allah.
So, we see that however, the circumstances may be, however hostile, however oppressive, what has to be done has to be done.
Because this life has been given to us why, so that we worship in Las panatela.
No matter what situation we are in, we have to worship Allah, we have to, we have to follow His commands, we have to observe the commands of Allah subhanaw taala has given us and for that you need to trust upon Allah.
Because it's not possible that in every situation, everyone is supportive, and everyone supports you in doing what you are supposed to do.
You will be in situations where people will be hostile to your accepting to your believing to your submitting to your following the commands,
every situation will not be favorable. Remember that
you will be in a situation once in a while in which you have to pray and people do not like that.
So what should be done, Leave, leave everything that has been commanded. No, we cannot leave it what has to be done.
We have to trust upon almost
sometimes it is peer pressure that we face. Sometimes it's the pressure from the family, sometimes it is from the society, but we cannot give in.
And what is it that gives us the confidence to not give in? It's the trust of on almost
that you cannot trust upon yourself. You cannot trust upon your knowledge you cannot trust upon your family. Who would you trust upon Allah that He has commanded me and he will protect me?
We learn instead of the caller ID number three, why am I here? What color are the lucky for her husband?
And whoever relies upon Allah, then Allah is sufficient for him. So what do we learn? that a person cannot do a bother unless and until he trusts upon Allah.
A person cannot do any better unless and until he trusts upon Allah.
We need we must trust upon Allah in order to be able to obey his commands.
So we see that there are many things that we are unable to do.
Why? Because of the fear of people, because of the fear of the society. What are they going to say?
What are they going to think of me? Because the fear of
The culture because it's completely contradicting. It's completely different. But we need to trust upon a lot in such situations.
For example, what happens with some girls, if they don't get married young, other people tell them, you know, perhaps you should take this hijab off. Perhaps you should be more social, and go and meet more men and talk to them more and be more talkative, and throw a few jokes out. And perhaps you know, then men will pay attention to you, and then somebody will be interested in then you'll be able to get married. This is the advice that typically people give to young women who are unable to get married when they're young.
But is it that every girl who does not wear hijab isn't that every sight word is married?
There are 1000s of girls out there who don't wear the hijab who don't wear the celeb, but still they're not married. So it's not their hijab, that prevents you from getting married? What is it? It's some other reasons.
So never put this on the hijab never put this on the religion. Never put this on obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.
Similarly, sometimes what happens, people are told, okay, take this beard off, pull down your pants, perhaps you'll get a nicer job.
But what is the fact that whatever is written for you is written for you.
masaba lumea can do
whatever was meant to reach you, it could never have missed you. Will my offer okay? Let me use a book and whatever missed you it was never meant to reach you.
Remember, it's what UNICEF teaches us matters with regards to other as well.
in difficult situations, what do we think that because of my religion because of this thing that I'm doing, this is why this is not happening in my life.
But the fact is, what is written for us is written for us and in order to obey Allah subhanaw taala we have to trust upon him
for follow, so they said who said
those who believed in musasa and their response was that are the lucky token upon Allah we have trusted. Yes, you have told us to trust upon Allah upon him. We are trusting. We are relying upon him by now. Our Lord ledger do not make us fitna. A trial for who will come is only mean for the wrongdoing people.
Don't make us a fitna. For the violent people. We see the immediate positive response of who of those people who believed in Masada sooner. they obeyed musala they listen to him immediately. Was Alison antolin. Do tawakkol they said Allah La etoken. What happens to us if we were told, trust upon Allah? We say okay, fine, I will transport you know, I'm supposed to do something as well.
We completely disregard relying upon almost predator. We don't give any attention to it. But look at those people who believe in musasa immediately their responses are the light that will come
and look at them they turn to Allah for help. So what is the work that you do your best? You trust upon Allah and you also pray to Allah you ultimate door.
Your ultimate door to Allah subhanaw taala they say Robin and ledger fitness a little oily mean, when a genie medica Milan Coleman coffee they made.
Now what does it mean by this, the bar of there is that Oh Allah Don't make us a fitna for the wrongdoing people.
This has been understood in several ways. First of all, that do not make us an object of persecution. For who, for the wrongdoing, people. Because remember, the word faith is also used for persecution.
So don't make us an object of persecution for the wrongdoing, people.
That when they're persecuting when they're oppressing. Who are they persecuting us? Who are they oppressing us? Secondly, lethargy and fitna, 10, that don't make us a trial for them. Don't make us a trial for comienza alameen. For the people who do wrong. What does it mean by that?
That don't make us a cause of their increase in cost and their rejection?
How, how would that be?
That if they oppress us, if they overpower us, if they are victorious over us? If they defeat us, then what are they going to think
that they are right and we are wrong?
Because whoever is victorious in whatever he's doing, he thinks that he is right.
He thinks that he should continue doing that.
And the one who has been defeated, he is wrong.
So if they overpower us, if they kill us, if they finish us, then what's going to happen? They're going to think that they are right. So don't make us a source of a deceiving trial for them.
In other words, don't let them win against us. Because if they do, they're going to increase in their disbelief, don't make us a cause of their disbelief.
So now that you're on their feet, nothing will come to me.
And this shows to us that we must be very careful that we should not become a cause of disbelief for other people.
That our wrong actions, our wrong behavior, our cheating and lying our failure, it becomes a cause of increase in sand for other people.
What happens to many people that when they turn towards the when they increase in their Deen, they completely neglect their worldly studies or their worldly things, they completely neglect them.
What happens if the people who are more in the dunya What do they think?
See, as soon as this person turn towards the dean, they have left everything they have forgotten everything, there is such a failure.
So we should never do anything that is going to increase someone in their denial in their rejection.
So when you go back to school, just because you're wearing the hijab, just because you've studied the Quran, what does it mean? You have to study extra hard.
You have to study extra hard you have to work extra hard. Why? So that people see that this is a person who has studied the deen look at their morals, look at their work ethic, look how honest they are, look how hard working they are.
And when we are lazy, when we are not successful in our work, then what happens? Other people, they blame our religion, they blame our hijab they blame our Quran, whereas in fact, whose fault is it? It's our own fault.
A believer the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala strong in what sense in the physical sense, in the in the sense of being knowledgeable in this in the sense of being vocal in different different ways.
So the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than the weak believer. So, our aim should be that we become strong, so that we are not a fitna for other people.
When a Jena and save us there are medica with your mercy minakami and caffeine from the disbelieving people. They made to our to Allah that Allah you save us, you protect us.
So then what happened?
Allah subhanaw taala instructed musasa them to do something. And what was that?
What Oh hyena Illa Musashi. And we inspire to musasa lamb and his brother who was his brother?
we didn't worry to them? That uncover
that you to settle lukumi Kuma for your people were bimbisara in Egypt
butan in houses
from the roof fetters bear well Hamza
bear well Hamza
we have done the word turbo we early turbo, we will move me Nina Macari the little cutter.
And but we're
but what does it mean to settle. So to what we do is to settle someone to appoint someone at a particular place to provide a residence to someone to provide some accommodation to someone bone is to return to go back. So whatever whatever this isn't addressed to who?
This is dual. Because at the end, this isn't the restroom Messiah center. And notice
that you too What do you have to do you have to settle your account your people and all this account refer to the money
settle your people where they miss in Egypt,
not somewhere else but in Egypt where they are right now.
But in Egypt, where should they be settled? Bhutan in houses? What does it mean by that? This has been understood in two ways.
First of all, that several Europe people in homes in Egypt
that in times of fitna in times of persecution
Where should people stay in their houses?
They should avoid the fitna
when there are riots going on outside, when there's a lot of fitna going on outside, where should people stay in their houses? So de Beauvoir early komikko may be miserable you can make them settle in their homes tell them to stay in their houses. Why for safety purposes for security purposes
and also that they should stay in missile and not think about going elsewhere right now because they cannot
Masada Sam came and told fit around. Let the bunny is right you go. But for your own refused. And the Bani Israel were not in such a position that they could leave Egypt by themselves. Especially at this point, they could not. Because they were an entire nation. They were slaves. So what are they told? Stay in Egypt, stay in your houses except your situation that you're in right now?
Many times what happens when we hear about or hijra hedgerow, then what do we think okay, Leave, leave this country. Let's go to some other land where there's the [???]tier. And where's this And where's that. But in reality, there is no such place where you can be free from fitna.
There is no place out there.
So what are the tools stay in Egypt? Stay right here because you cannot change your situation right now. You have to stay here, accepted. stay here until the command of our last panel data comes. And right now focus on what you're supposed to do. And what is it that they were told to do? As we will learn in the ayah establish the center
because sometimes we want an immediate change. We wanted the Muslims should be victorious and they should be in Islamic State and there should be a halifa and there should be this and that we live in a dream world.
And the fact is that we are far away from such a state. from such a time we are far
because we cannot even pray together. We cannot even go to the masjid regularly.
So what are the bunny is right? You told that you stay in your house and right now stay in your country right now, although it is not a Muslim country, although the government is not Muslim, but you're here, you're not living elsewhere. So stay here and do what you can do.
Secondly, and Davao what Allah call me Kumar be miserable. uten. What this means is that you appoint you assign some homes
for your people.
Were in Egypt,
meaning appoint some homes of the Bani Israel, for what purpose for religious services
because at that time, for their own had forbidden the construction of any worship places, any religious places where people would get together in order to worship in order to practice a religion that was other than his religion. He was completely banned. completely banned. It was not allowed.
Now the Bani Israel they were Muslim, they wanted reform.
Obviously, they would have wanted that we should be allowed to have our own massages our own workplaces. And because there are so many of us, we should have multiple massages at the end of every street in every subdivision. But what are they told that from every few houses, select a house and appoint that as a Masjid when you're alone? And you should make boo to comb your houses? bibliothon if Qiblah
make those houses What if hibbeler
booth is the plural of bait, and Kibler is from the real fetters of Berlin.
What is the Qibla?
direction? What direction in which a person prays
in which a person performs the Salah? So what do you boo boo tocom Latin What does it mean by that?
Again, two meanings, if you continue the two meanings from
and toboa Alico mikuma be miserable uten First of all, what was the first meaning that stay in your houses? So what's your boo boo tocom cabler meaning make your houses, places of worship? Where should you worship? In your own house? Yes, you want to go and worship collectively? You want to go and worship in the massage. But you cannot do that right now? Does this mean you leave the solder? No. What are you going to do them? Pray in your houses?
Make your houses of Qibla stay in your houses and worship in your houses. Secondly, antimalware Alico mikuma Misra booth, what does it mean? That select a few houses to be able to be the places of worship select a few houses
You cannot construct a place you cannot make a place and name it a Masjid. So what should you do?
In one of the houses get together and worship over there?
Get together and worship over there. What's your Aloo taco table?
What akima salata and establish the solar war by shooting money in and give good news to the believers,
as I mentioned, to the federal and forbidden all collective worship places where people would get together in order to worship, so that people would not gather in the name of religion,
he did not want that to happen at all. He did not want that people should get together in the name of religion and worship collectively. Why? Because if they would get together in the name of religion, they would become united.
And they will want a change in the society, which was a threat to his kingship. And he did not want that at all.
So what is a solution that the Bani Israel has given? That you should stop worshipping completely? Because you're not allowed? You're not allowed to go to the masjid, you're not allowed to build a Masjid. You're not allowed to study your book, doesn't mean you don't worship at all, no, stay in your houses, appoint a few houses, and do what you can do. So in this ayah, we're being taught a very important lesson for reform, that reform begins from home.
And if you are not allowed to do something, as you should be doing, then what should you do? Change your strategy,
change the strategy. If the circumstances are not in your favor, then what should you do? Change the strategy. If you cannot get together in worship, you can worship in your houses.
And this was not just at the time of film.
This happened at many other places many other times where other religions were completely banned.
Like for example, what happened in Russia? What happened in China? What happened in Turkey? People were not allowed to practice their religion at all. So what was the solution? Leave the religion completely. No
wonder arguably, with the comfortable worship in your own houses, don't go out in the fitna. Don't go out in the middle of the persecution and bring fitna to yourself, no, avoid it. Stay in your houses change the strategy and worship over there.
So we see that we're being taught over here to adopt a different way of doing things. Now, this does not mean that we have to change the shirt here.
That just because people do not like the fact that you wear the hijab, so don't wear it. People don't like the fact that you keep a beard, so don't keep it. No, this is not what it means. What this means is that staying within the bounds of the [???]tier, do that which will not be do visible to the people or do unacceptable to the rest of the people. You understand, like for example, for a woman to wear the hijab, personally, and for many other women as well, they prefer black, or they prefer dark colors. And if you're in a Muslim country, go ahead, do that. But if for example, you're traveling,
and you're crossing the security, and if you're dressed in black, top to bottom, what is that going to happen?
What's that going to lead to? It's going to frighten the people. It's going to make them nervous.
Why not? Because you're saying something. But because that is how the image has been portrayed to them. So just because they will see someone in black, they will treat them differently, they will become afraid of them. So if the shadier allows you to wear a lighter color, why don't you do that?
Why don't you do that? Why call fitna Why bring difficulty upon yourself.
This is what the bunnies are being told to do. Change the strategy, they're not being told, leave Salah.
Similarly, it's not that we should stop wearing the hijab, no, wear it, but just change the strategy slightly, staying within the bounds of the Sharia. Do that which is more acceptable to the people do that which will not bring more problems to you?
Because if you don't change your strategy, then what's going to happen you're going to invite trouble.
So do not invite trouble. Do not do that. And this is something that we're being told to do, especially in times of conflict, in times of conflict in times of oppression in times where people are not allowed to practice their religion, where people are not given any freedom of choice with regards to their religion or with regards to their opinions and their belief.
So in these situations, what should we do? avoid trouble change our strategy.
Similarly, for men, what do they have to do? They have to pray Salah in congregation. And for that, what do you need a Masjid that is 15 minutes drive away from your house. If that is the case, praying five times a day in the masjid is going to be extremely difficult.
So what's the solution to that? build a machine in every subdivision. That should be the solution. Well, that is possible in a Muslim land.
If you're living in a place where building a Masjid, in every subdivision is not possible, it's not even allowed by permit even. Because only houses can be built over there, then what are you going to do? Leave the sun, don't pray in the congregation. Know, what can you do, then?
What can you do that?
they can get together in one of the houses and pray in congregation over there.
And this happens in so many places. Like for example, in the building where many Muslims are living, they will get together in one of the apartments. And they will go and pray there collectively, five times a day. Now, instead of saying, Oh, this is not fair, and this is oppression, and we want our right? What's that going to lead to problems?
that's going to lead to problems, people are going to say, look, we're tolerating you, and you want more from us, you can go, you can go in from here.
This is natural. And anyway.
So if you are in a situation where there's a lot of conflict, what are you supposed to do, instead of inviting trouble,
use avoidance and change your strategy.
But it does not mean that you leave or better. Remember, it does not mean that you leave or that because of any side has been told, make your houses equivalent and established. So that what does it mean that regardless of how the situation is, you're supposed to do what you're supposed to do, you cannot leave that you cannot leave your salary, you cannot leave your job.
But you can change your strategy slightly.
And from this part of the blue, the concrete pillar, this is something very important
that we have to see that in our houses are our houses.
A place where Salah is established a place where honors learned a place where honors
in every house, there is a place that is dedicated to what
what is dedicated in every house,
So in every house, there is a place that is dedicated to the television, whether it is a wall or a room, or it is the basement, isn't it so but we have to see, is there a place in our house that is dedicated to solar
that is dedicated to praying and worshiping and studying and reading where people can come and learn the Quran.
It's amazing that whenever people are buying the house, they wonder, okay, where can we put the televisions? Okay, maybe in the basement, we can set this up.
But never do we think that maybe in the basement, we can have a class. Maybe in the basement, we can have a gym or maybe in the basement, all the children can come and learn Do
we ever think like that as well, in this ayah what has been taught
the way of reform the way of Islamic revival.
It begins from homes it begins from houses, that what your Alou
major houses a place of worship.
If there is no room for Salah even in your house, a place that is dedicated to the worship of Allah. Then how can you bring about a place in your society where people get together to worship of law? How is it possible
and look how the ends were best should give good news to the believers of what
that soon change will come. But they have to start themselves in their houses.
