Are the biller human? Atlanta rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim lesson number 184 surah two new Ayah number 53 to 57.
Allah subhanaw taala says will aka some will be Lehi and they swear by Allah. Jeddah emani of their strongest oats, ox mo from custom,
and Osama, Osama, with our booth at the end is such an old that a cappella that has been accused of murder.
They have to swear to prove their innocence. Before the idea of McDowell, before the airs family of the one who has been killed,
like for example, a person is killed. You don't know who murdered him?
A particular tribe, there people are accused.
Now they're innocent, or they want to prove their innocence. What are they going to do? They're going to go and swear by Allah, by Allah, we did not kill such and such person. We are innocent, we are not guilty.
So the swears the oath that this Kabila goes and swears these author called what Osama? And from this awesome is used for such an oath that is worn to remove doubt from the heart of the other person.
Awesome is why such an old that is worn in order to remove doubt from the heart of the other person, it is for the purpose of little first check to remove the doubt.
Like for example, you tell someone, I'm going to do this. They're looking at you reading? I don't think so. What do you say I swear. So why do you swear? To remove the doubt from their heart? You want to assure them that yes, I am going to do this. Or you say I didn't do it. They're still looking at you without so you say I swear will law he I did not do it. So this is what awesome. Why? Because you're swearing this lesson in order to remove doubt from the other person's heart. So Oxo. This were meaningful naphthalene in order to remove doubt from the hearts of the believers that they're not sincere, they want to satisfy them, they want to prove themselves as very sincere, very
committed. So ox amo biLlahi, Jetta emani Giada, as you know is used for for effort and ability strain masaka full strength and from the same root as the word Jihad because in jihad, what is a person who puts his maximum effort maximum ability.
So, this when a person does something to the best of his ability, and a man is applauded, you mean you mean is also used for an oath. And this oath is such that is sworn in order to remove the blame. I was a different from custom customers that you want to remove the doubt from the other person's heart and yumminess that you're swearing this oath in order to remove the blame that you have been accused of remove the blame.
And others say that he amine is also such an earth in which the right hand is used. Like for example, when people go to court they raise up their right hand or they put their right hand on something. So up some will be Larry Jetta emani. And that is where by Allah their strongest or the strongest or that they can offer. Like for example, one is that a person says I swear. The other is that he says I swear by a law. The other is that a person says I swear by a lot the Lord of all the worlds
or a person says I swear by the one in whose hand is my life and your life. So the more intensity a person adds to an oath the stronger it becomes. So accent will be like just a man him the strongest oath that they can offer that they can make. That's what this way why in order to satisfy the people, this is just lip service. And what do they say that like in a motorhome? That Surely if you ordered them, meaning if the profits are a lot of them wherever to command them to do something, to go out for an expedition to participate in a battle layer hydrogen, that surely they will definitely come out. They swear that if you command them, they will definitely go out with you. Allah subhanaw
taala says go say to them lattissima don't swear. You don't need to swear. Why? Because thorton Mara lufa obedience is well known.
Don't swear, because Thor attune Maru Fatone. What does it mean by the start written by roofer meaning that obedience is well
It's understood as to how a person is supposed to obey not by words, but how? By actions. Because your actions they speak louder than your words. If you say you're going to do something and you don't do it, that's not obedience. What is required is obedience. thora is model for meaning it speaks for itself. It's obvious when a person is obeying and when a person is not obeying Barton meroofer. So therefore, you don't need to swear, you don't need to talk as much, just do what you're required to do.
Secondly, Tara to moroka is also understood as meaning far to come tomorrow for your Tara is well known to us. The type of your obedience is known to us. We know very well as to how you obey. You don't need to swear we know how you obey. You just said you don't do
so tartan. meroofer and others that are too narrow for means meaning and multilumen comparten margaretha. What is required from you is obedience, not oath, but obedience.
In Allah, Indeed, Allah hubiera on he is aware Bhima Dharma loon of whatever that you do,
what do we see that the hypocrites, they would not go out on the expeditions along with the profits,
especially when there was risk of danger, risk of loss, risk of loss of lives or loss of wealth. So they did not want to suffer from any harm, therefore, they would not go along with the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And obviously, when the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim would return, and these people were seen, they knew that they were in trouble, because they'd be questioned as to why you didn't come. So what would they do at that moment, they will start swearing by a lot, next time we're gonna come, we'll be there at your service next time. Now next time, or when the booty would be divided amongst the Mujahideen among those people who have participated in the battle, they would also want
to share and they will go and say by Allah will be there next time.
So such behavior is being represented, that in reality, these people are lying. They don't intend to do anything. They don't intend to go anywhere. They don't intend to follow the commands of Allah and His messenger. They're just swearing to please the profits on a lot isn't there just wearing to please people, this is all lip service, that they're just trying to prove themselves as very sincere, well wishers. If you think of it, who needs to swear or
a person who is not truthful, a person who is not trusted by others, a person who is not reliable, he needs to swear all the time in order to satisfy people.
And also, a person who does not want to do something, he is the one who will swear false oaths, that he just wants to satisfy the other person so that he will be quiet, he will not say anything to him anymore. And he can do whatever he wants, he doesn't need to follow the commands. So a person who does not want to do anything, he is the one who needs to swear, you must have seen that people who do not want to do some work, they like to talk a lot.
People who do not want to work, they like to talk, because they know that they have not fulfilled their responsibility. So they cover that up by talking. And a person who is busy in his work, he does not even have time to talk, isn't it? So two different behaviors. A person who is talking a lot, he's not actually working, a person who is working, he does not have time to talk.
Now, if a person, let's say you hire somebody to come in, clean your house for you. They say we'll come for three hours, we'll charge you this much money. You say, okay, fine, agreed. They come and they come and they're cleaning their dusting, but at the same time, they're talking to you. They're vacuuming every few minutes, they stop and they're talking to you. They're passing their comments and everything on every frame that you have in your house, everything that you have in your house. And what happens that all the time goes by three hours go by, and they have barely done anything. Now at that time, you got deceived, while they're talking to you. They're appreciating your
decoration, they're appreciating your little baby, they're appreciating the smell of the food that you're cooking. And afterwards, what happens when they leave and you look at the work that they have done. What do you say, I'm not gonna call this person again? You know, they're not reliable. Because the person who talks more, works less than 115 What would they do? Doc, Doc, Doc, we're gonna do this, we're gonna do that. We're gonna come with you. We're gonna fight. We're gonna be very brave. We're gonna sacrifice this. But when it came time to do something, they would not do it.
This is the reality of a person who does not want to do what he's saying. He will do
He's not interested in it.
And in reality, he's trying to deceive the other person. You have your own aloha when Latina woman, he's trying to deceive. It's like when you don't want to do something like, for example, your younger brother comes and asks you, can you please give this to me? You say, okay, when you pass your exam that I'll give this to you. Okay? He passes his exams. And he says, Okay, now can you give this to me? And he's like, No, you didn't do that. Good. Okay, now what? You have to do this for me? Okay? He doesn't know. But you had to do this for me as well. Why are you saying one thing after the other to him? Because you don't want to give it isn't it? So this is why you're setting one
condition after the other. And every time you say, I promise, when you will do this, I will give it to you, I promise will lie he, by Allah, I will give this to you. So by making these promises, by saying such big statements in reality, what are you doing?
What are you doing, you're deceiving your brother. And you're just trying to delay trying to live off trying to not give importance. Just by using words, you're trying to avoid doing what you're supposed to be doing. seminary when a person says Allah, I will do this. I promise I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this, this, this, this, this.
And when the time comes, he doesn't do it. What is he trying to do? Playing with Allah receiving Allah.
Think about it. If a child even does not like to be treated like this, if your younger brother does not like to be treated like this,
you think Allah azza wa jal robber, I mean, he would approve this behavior from us, then we can say one thing after the other, we can make one promise after the other, and we don't do it.
This is not proper behavior. This is very, very disrespectful.
Children hate to be treated like this. They lose your trust. They don't trust you anymore. They don't rely on you anymore.
And we think we can deceive a lot like this, that we say, Yes, I will do it when I turned 20. I will do this when I go to school, when I get married when I have children. And all of those things happen. But we don't fulfill our promises. You have your own Allaha Medina.
The fact is then that when you find something to be important, whether you like it or not, you will force yourself to do
when you feel that something is necessary, you will force yourself to do it. And the same thing we have to do when it comes to the commands of Allah, whether you like it or not, whether it hits you or not, whether you fully understood it or not, whether it has made sense to you yet or not. The fact that it's coming from a Lynas messenger, force yourself to do it, believe that it is necessary, and don't handicap yourself.
Because we handicap ourselves a lot. We say we have this reason we say we have that reason. Think about it. There's a normal person like to walk on crutches know, a person who has to walk with crutches even he does not like to a normal person, would you want to walk on crutches? No, he would never want that because it's a disability. It's a cause of shame. It's a cause of embarrassment. And he does not want to be seen like that. So why is it that when it comes to the dean, we handicap ourselves on everything.
We have an excuse for everything. We don't get embarrassed over there.
Recently, somebody was telling me about this woman who had a physical disability, she basically had no legs.
And she was an athlete at the same time.
So she was giving a speech. It was basically about overcoming adversity, that every person has challenges in his life. Every person suffers from some adversity in his life. But if you want to do something, you need to accept it.
Not overcome, because it's a reality it exists you cannot avoid it. Like for example, if a person does not have legs, he does not have legs. How can you overcome that? He has to accept that situation. And in that situation, he has to figure out how can he do what he's supposed to do?
But if you start putting yourself over there, or I'm so unfortunate, I don't even have this I can't even do this. My family does not allow my husband does not allow. People don't support. They look at me like this. I live in such a country. If you begin to feel pity on yourself, you will not be able to do anything.
Realize and accept the situation that you're in.
Okay. Now also realize that what you have to do is necessary. What you have to do is mandatory because Serato Angela was gonna realize that as well and asked her to show you the way once you have that resolve and determination
Allah will show you the
call after your Allah her say obey Allah will alter your over soul and obey the messenger.
say to the people obey Allah and obey the messenger, don't just say that you will obey, don't just wear or that I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that. No, do it already show it already.
For interval low, and if you turn away, for innama, then indeed not but our lay upon him, upon who, upon the messenger, upon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is Maha Miller, what he was made to carry, I lay Allah over here gives a sense of responsibility. Meaning on the messenger is the responsibility of what Mohammed what he has been made to carry, meaning what he has been made responsible off what he has been burdened with, and what is the responsibility of the messenger
to convey. So if you turn away, then remember, that the responsibility of the messenger is only to convey, he is not going to be held accountable, whether you accept it or not, no, he conveyed, he did his job. But remember, that were the messengers responsible, you are also responsible, that what I lay come upon you is my home meltem, whatever you have been made to carry meaning on you is a responsibility as well. And what is that responsibility that has been laid upon you? What is our responsibility,
to obey, to submit, to accept, where the profits are allowed Is that him fulfill his responsibility of conveying what is our duty? Then we just study what he conveyed and move on know, our duty is that we learn about what he conveyed and accepted, follow it implemented. Because if we don't implement it, this is in gratitude towards the efforts of the prophets of Allah is the man who strove so much, who suffered so much to convey this plan to us. We hear it, we listen to it. We appreciate the words. We exercise our minds, and we don't implement this is unfair. This is not justice, where the profits are allowed center was laid with the responsibility to convey we have
been laid with the responsibility to accept and implement and remember that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he conveyed fully. You remember, it had to deal with that. He asked the people that have I conveyed and they said yes. And he said along Mashhad, although you bear with us, he conveyed. What about us?
Have we accepted? Have we followed? Have we implemented?
What in total, you're who if you obey Him that do then you will obtain guidance? If a person obeys the Prophet sallallahu sallam, if a person obeys what the prophets are allowed to set and brought, what he conveyed to us, only then he is rightly guided and if he does not obey, if he does not accept, if he does not comply, then can he claim to be rightly guided no into the rule that I do, then you are rightly guided then you're on your way to the right destination.
Women are that was truly a nod upon the messenger is lol Bella who been except the clear convey
meaning the messenger is only obligated to convey in clear terms
instead of the word i a 40, we learn for in Mr. La kolel Marlena is upon you as a duty to convey and upon us is the account.
So what do we see that there are three responsibilities. One is of Allah subhanho that it is upon him do send guidance, it is upon him to take people to account for what they have done to recompense them.
Where Elena has said,
then there is a responsibility of the messenger what is that responsibility to convey to the people?
Okay, Allah sent His messenger, the messenger came and conveyed. There's also a responsibility upon us, which is to do, what we have been told, do what is necessary for success.
do what is necessary for success. And when a person does that, then he will be that they do into the role that they do. And a person disobeys the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if a person does not follow the guidance that he has brought, that he is not correctly guided.
If you look at it, from the beginning of the surah, I asked the mobile unit has been mentioned a few times. And then Allahu nudell semi What do you want?
And then the commands that are simple, straightforward, clear. And we have been told very clearly that those who follow these commands, then those people are mostly home, those people are fat. And those who don't, they're lolly mode.
Now it is up to us.
The whole reality has been displayed before us. It hasn't been exposed before it has been put out before us. Now it's up to us to choose. What do we do? The commands? Are there warning? Is there good news? Is there? clarity is there. It's up to us, what do we choose? If we follow our benefit? If we refuse our loss?
And if we have any fears, then we should remember that what are the law who Allah has promised? Who? unloving Mr. Newman come
those people who have believed among you, and not just belief, but what i mean i saw they had and they also do righteous deeds, they fulfill their responsibility of following the messenger. So what is the promise that Allah subhanaw taala has made to such people, that Lester Sullivan, who filled out that Allah will definitely surely he will grant them succession to authority upon the earth, He will definitely give them authority and freedom in the earth, that they will be able to freely practice their religion.
But this comes when?
When does it come?
When a person becomes a who alladhina amanu? Where I mean,
if you notice, what are the law, Allah has promised?
Many times what happens, we know what the command is, we know what we're supposed to do, but we have certain fears. And those fears may be genuine. Like, for example, fear of people,
fear of opposition, that since we are a minority, we have to assimilate. If we start dressing up differently, if we start doing things differently, then we can't coexist with other people. This is what we feel. Or for example, a person has this fear that if I begin to follow the commands of the religion, if I begin to follow this particular command, I might lose my job, my family will not support me anymore. People have these fears. And what happens if a person begins to follow the commands at a loss of penalty has given when these risks when these dangers are there, what happens? He does suffer.
So many times you may have heard, you may have seen a girl who begins to wear hijab, and she has problems with her in laws.
That because a girl wears hijab, her fiance says, You know, I want to marry you. However, if you want to get married to me, you can't wear this. She says no, I cannot take this off what happens, engagement breaks. Similarly, you may have heard many, many stories, where people become firm on the dean. And as soon as they start following the dean, what happens? People start opposing them, they lose their job, they lose their family support, they begin to hear one criticism, one bad reaction after the other. It happens. If you look at the McCain era, it's full of such stories full of such incidents. When Messiah women are made when he became Muslim, his mother loved him so much before so
much new clothes, new perfumes, the most unique fragrances, you can say he was someone very spoiled, the kind of blessings that he was raised in. But what happened the moment he accepted Islam, his mother said, I'm not going to eat. I'm not going to sit in the shade. I'm not going to comb my hair. And just imagine the mother who loves you so much. And you know how nice she has been to you if she opposes you in this way. What are you meant to do?
On the one hand is a command of Allah, on the other hand is a love of people, the threat of people, what do you do in that situation? You do face difficulties. So many companions, they became Muslim, they were killed. Their fathers became their enemies, their families left them. This is a reality when a person begins to follow the commands of Allah He will be tested because has he been so in utero? Amanda? afternoon, the people think that they will be left that just because they say they believe and they will not be tested? No, they will definitely be tested. These tests will come. However, Allah has made a promise. And what is that promise that what are the law who Ludhiana Amma
New Mexico? What are
those people who remain steadfast who accept the man who continue to do our masala who don't compromise on their religion? Regardless of what opposition they face? They remain firm and steadfast. Allah has promised them that Lester luffenham fill out the that surely you will definitely give them succession in the earth. Yes, Stephen from Harlem fair is still alive.
If and if this lab is to come as a halifa, after someone to be a successor of someone, that those before you, they have now gone and you have come and taken their place.
And it gives a sense of someone who has power, someone who has authority, someone who has freedom, someone who can do what they want to do. layers of the funnel fell asleep camasta cliff and Latina men coddling him just as he gave authority, he made successors to those people before them.
Like for example, the bunny,
the bunny Israel when they were in missiles, when they were in Egypt, have their own persecuted them how much he tortured them how much he oppress them. But what do we learn that because they became a Savile Row because they were patient, their patients paid off. They did not give up their religion. they obeyed their messenger musar this time he took them and what do we learn instead of cos I number five that will lead to a pneumonia either lead in a stillbirth fulfill early when ajala home imagine when a woman were seen and we wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land. And we wanted to make them leaders and we wanted to make them inheritors. And this is what
happened very soon, the Bani Israel. Within a few years what happened, they went into Jerusalem and they had the kingdom like that of the other escena Suleiman or listener where they were the superpower supreme power, the greatest authorities,
most successful people. So this is a promise of Allah. When a person remains steadfast, Allah will not abandon him. He will not abandon him. He will face difficulties, but he should remember he is being tested.
And the more difficulty he faces, the more severe he does, the more steadfast he remains, the greater the reward is going to be,
the greater the reward is going to be. And we see this with the Sahaba as well. The Companions of the profits are of our salon as well. We learned in Serato and fall 2016, the Sahaba reminded with guru, Aunt uncle Ilan must have their phone and fill out the Hakuna Matata commonness for our comb. What a year the convener three, what are the CoCo Minato bet there on the counter Sharon. And remember when you were few few Muslims, oppressed in the land, fearing that people might abduct you, when the Muslims were in Makkah how much fear they had, any time. They could be abducted, they could be killed, they could be finished, but he sheltered you, he supported you with his victory, and he
provided you with good things that you might be grateful. This is a promise of Allah, you may face difficulty, but remember that difficulty is temporary. Very soon, you will have freedom
you will have the ability,
you will face is because after trials, what happens is does go after every night, there is a day
we learn from our bodies that are they even had them. He said that while I was sitting in the city of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a man came and he complained to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of destitution and poverty, that we're suffering from so much poverty, we're suffering from so much loss. And then another man came and he complained of robbery of highway meant that there is no peace when we travel we robbed so people are coming to the profit sort of autism and complaining. So the profits or loss of them said rd Have you been to an hayleigh? So he said, I said I haven't been to it, but I was informed about it. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If you should live for a
long time, you will certainly see that a lady in a Helder traveling from a healer will safely reach Mecca and perform that the wife of the garba fearing none but Allah to Allah said, I said to myself, what will happen to the robbers of the tribe of fate who have spread evil throughout the country? Because he belonged to the tribe of clay, so he knew what kind of robbers they were. So he said, what would happen to them? At that time, that this woman alone, she could come all the way from hero to Makkah, and she can perform the wife and another nation we learned she will be laden with gold jewelry.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam further said, If you should live long, the treasures of kisara will be opened and taken as spoils. I asked you mean kiss rossana Vamos. So he said yes, guess rossana Palmas. And if you should live long, you will see that one will carry a handful of gold or silver and go out looking for a person to accept it from him as sadhaka but we'll find none to accept it from him.
And any of you when meeting a lot will meet him
without needing an interpreter between him and Allah to interpret for him. And Allah will say to him, didn't I send a messenger to teach you? And he will say, yes, Allah will say, Did I give you wealth and do your favors? He will say yes, then he will look to his right and see nothing but hell, and look to his left and see nothing but hell
are the further said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying, so, the Hadees that continues, basically the point of mentioning this part of the Hadith says, that, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even in Medina, the Sahaba, they suffered from poverty, they suffered from fear.
They suffered from a lot of risks. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, he told the if you live long enough, you will see when times have completely changed, when there will be security, when there will be abundance of wealth, you will not find a needy person.
So, this is a promise of Allah, while Allahu Allah as promised. So just because we face temporary difficulty, does not mean we begin to compromise on the religion. Because what do we say? It was a motherfucking. It was a hypocrites. They're the ones who did not fully commit to the religion, they would compromise it everything.
Outwardly, they would appear to be Muslim, but they would not sacrifice because they were not sure whether Islam was going to be successful or not. They did not believe in the promises of Allah. This is why just to be on the safe side, they would not sacrifice as much for the deen.
But the true believers are sincere believers are sacrificed at every step. And we see how they were rewarded in dystonia. Even.
Some scholars have said that last roughly founder who fell out of over here does not just refer to the near but it also refers to Agenda because it is possible that a person does not live long enough to see the fruit of his patience, that he does not live long enough to experience religious freedom. Maybe his children will. Maybe other people do but he does not he dies like for example, Mozart even remained. He died in the early part of Medina era. He did not witness the conquest of Makkah.
He did not witness all of the spoils coming into Medina he did not witness any of that. He died at a very early era. So such people how will Allah subhanaw taala fulfill promise with them? They are study for now and fill up they will be given gentlemen, Allah will definitely reward them because in the law you there vegetal mercy. Allah does not waste the reward of those people who do
insert a natural number 97 also we learn manner Amina slowly Hanneman, Zachary owns a wahoo movement on felony Haryana, who hired and then whoever does righteousness whether male or female, while he is a believer, we will surely cause him to live a good life where
in this dunya in the grave, in the bursa, and also in the afterlife.
So this is a promise of Allah later Stephen now fill all the commas dolfinarium and cobbly him
this is one promise and also another promise that will let you McKinnon alone and He will surely establish for them. Dina whom their religion which religion and levy that religion which is de la home that he has preferred for them. Let you makina for me him crafternoon dunking anthem penis to establish something to make something firm to give stability to it. So this theme that seems to be very weak today. Everyone has the guts to criticize the religion today. Everyone has the confidence to come and refute this religion today. Come and talk against it. Blame every crime on it. Blame it for everything that's going wrong in this world.
This religion that appears to be very weak. Allah says whether you MacKinnon Allahu Allah this Deen Allah will establish it firmly. He will make it firm how into ways in the lead in evidence that even if people try to refute even if people try to say bad things, negative things, this Deen is truth. It is established in and of itself. No one can come and shake the foundations of this team.
In evidence in the lean in evidence, this Dean is strong, no one can refute it. No one can argue against it if they do they look like a fool. Secondly, them Keane is also in power. How that this Dean which is not dominant today. This Dean that is not dominant. Today, there will be a time when it will be dominant because this is a promise of Allah. This is a promise of Allah. We have learned earlier as well. In total MVI 105 that will occur the cabinet visible remembered his victory and the other lady so her evadne asylee hoon. And we have already written in the book after the previous mentioned that the land
inherited by my righteous servants. So my righteous servants what religion will they follow the religion that I have approved for them so this Deen will be established for them, they will be able to freely follow it without any restrictions imposed on them. Because estimating the state in Makkah, how the believer struggled to even pray, how they struggled to even recite the Quran, to learn anything about the religion. And Allah subhanaw taala changed that state. He took them to Medina, where prayers were established in the masjid. Just imagine
where the Quran was recited all the time, by the adults, by the children, by the women by the men, whether you makin anila, home dinner home, and let it abolish
the religion that Allah has approved for them. And which religion is that? The religion of Islam? Because in the dinner in the law in Islam, what led to local Islamic Deena
another promise, whether you buy delanda home, and surely he will definitely change for them, he will exchange them mimbar, the hovingham after their fear, and then peace, that when they're following the commands of Allah, they have so much fear. What if this happens? What if that happens? What if this person says that what if I'm opposed in that way, Allah has promised that this fear will soon change into
into a state of peace from their enemy,
they will be confident they will have no fears, they will have no threats, they will have no risks. Will you bet dealer no member the whole thing.
And you may have noticed that when you start something initially, if you're so afraid, if you're so frightened, you feel so scared. But what happens after some time.
You don't fear anymore. Even if people say the weirdest things to you the harshest of comments to you what happens? You don't care. You're used to it, you don't have that fear anymore.
So the state of fear, it will be changed by a man. This is the promise of Allah.
I remember the first time I woke up, I was sweating. I was so afraid. I was frightened, shivering, scared, I was so nervous. I still remember that day. I still remember that moment. I could not keep it on my face. I was so frightened. I cannot tell you. But now
I go in front of people who look at me like this, and they give me dirty looks. No big deal.
Because the real fear is where it's inside. You need to overcome yourself. Once you overcome yourself, you're fine. So many people, they get so frightened when they put the hijab on the first time they put it on, they're so scared, should I put it on? Should I take it off, put it on, should I take it off? thereby constantly, you're questioning you're debating, you have this fear. But if you continue,
have some resilience, have some resolve, be strong, continue alone, remove that fear and you will change it into whether you bet the land the human body holds him and he will change the state of yours. But it will not come like this. You have to do something. You have to take the first step. You have to do it. You have to accept that Allah has told you to do it, and you do it.
And Allah will give you the confidence.
Yeah, we'll do it. They will worship Me, les yoshikuni vishay. And they will not associate partners with me anything at all. Because when a person sacrifices for the sake of Allah, when a person obeys Allah, knowing that Allah has commanded that it makes him more sincere. It brings a class in his heart. It brings sincerity in his heart. Yara bodoni they're usually going to be shy, they will not associate any partners with me. And we see that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he conquered Mecca, what did he do? He removed all shake from that all of the items that were in the garbage outside the garbage, he removed all of them and he said, Well, culture and hukou was adopted in
Alberta, Canada, Hong Kong. law you see goona beach, a

that a person has the freedom to practice the religion.
There is there is no fear, there is no threat. It is possible for him to implement the commands of Allah. Still, he doesn't do so. For Allah ecoman physical then such people are fasting. Such people are those who cross limits their camel in their fist, when they don't obey the commands that Allah subhanaw taala has given. Guevara primarily is gopher but mimbar divided
ellika after that meeting, after all of these promises have been fulfilled by Allah, if you look in this ayah, what promises are made, that first of all, Allah will give them succession meaning authority, the freedom, the ability to implement the commands to follow the deen. And secondly, that Islam will become strong and dominant. And thirdly, that fear will be replaced by and if you look at it, for example, even today, when you look at these promises that are lost the penalty has made, do we not have the freedom of religion?
Do we not have the freedom of religion we do. We have the freedom of religion, especially in the country that we're living in. When it comes to your personal worship. When it comes to your personal acts of worship the way you want to dress, you have the freedom except in some places, but mainly in the majority of the places you have that freedom.
People will respect you. But if we don't take advantage of this freedom, who is to blame us or other people, us, other people are not to blame. They have given us a freedom. They have told us, you can do whatever you want. You can practice your faith. You can have your mosque, you can wear what you want. Even at schools, you can pray, you can wear what you want, nobody's going to stop you. I remember when I went to university, and when you have to get your student card made your university card made. You have to get your picture taken, right. And your picture goes on your student card. And I had my face covered and the woman who was going to take a picture she said, I asked her Am I
supposed to take this off because there were a lot of men over there. So I said, if you want me to take it off, then you know, I would appreciate if the men would either look away, or they would go away from here or you would take me somewhere else. You know what she said to me? It's your choice. You can keep it on if you want. And she took my picture with an account.
I still have it.
If you want it as evidence, I still have it. She took that picture with Anika. And I was like there's no reason that you cannot wear the proper hijab at school. When the administration is allowing you to keep your niqab on even when it comes to identification.
If they are cooperating this much with you, then we are at fault. We don't have the confidence. We don't have the determination. It's our fault. We cannot blame people.
So if we look at it, we have the freedom. Secondly, when it comes to religion, our religion is made strong. There are so many evidences when it comes to the leader our religion is strong. Who is to blame? It's us. We don't know our within ourselves. We have not studied the we have not studied the Quran properly. And if we are studying, perhaps we're not giving the talk. We don't keep revising. This is why we forget. This is why when people ever have to discuss something about their religion with us, we fail because we don't know their religion ourselves. So who is to blame us. And again, when it comes to fear, when people have given you the freedom, you have to have confidence inside.
If you have fear inside you will not be able to do anything. If you're confident inside you will be able to do anything.
Yeah, we'll do nanny, when are you going to be a woman careful about the Delica fula ecoman. Physical whoever denies after that, whoever does not take advantage of these promises that Allah has fulfilled than they are festival. They are crossing limits Allah has fulfilled his promises. He has provided us so many opportunities if we don't take advantage we are at fault.
What have been solid and establish the prayer what to look at that and give this a cat wealthier over Sula and obey the messenger that are local to her own. So that you are blessed with mercy.

Yes, the cat, but along with that obey the messenger that are looking to hammer to that mercy may be done on you so that you become worthy of the mercy of Allah.
And if we don't even take the first step of obeying the messenger,
then how do we expect that everything will become easy for us? Rama comes when,
after obedience, you take the first step you obey, and Allah will bestow His mercy upon you instead of the Toba 71 we learn while momina while moving at barraba whom earlier about yet morona been maruf when honer I didn't want go when you came on a salata. What are you do when you do your own aloha Baba Sula, who? hula ecosa Hama Hama, La Ilaha Aziz and hacking
that such people are the ones whom Allah bestows His mercy on. They're the ones who are worthy of a less mercy. They're the ones with whom Allah fulfills his promises with he makes ways easy for them.
Letter seven alladhina cafaro more josina fill up. Never think that the disbelievers are causing failure to Allah upon the earth.
Let us abandon everything like this. The prophets are allowed Islam is being addressed, the believers are being addressed. That never everything that those who oppose the deen those who deny the deen, they can cause failure to the religion of Allah in this earth. Why? Because eventually they're going to die. There are people, they're weak, they're not alcovy they're not disease, they might be struggling a lot. Do not let you practice your religion. Do not let you have that freedom, but never think that they will be successful. They're here temporarily. Eventually, they're going to finish what we're human now. What a bit selflessly, and their abode is hellfire. And surely what an
evil return is.
We see that when the surah was revealed, the believers were not completely and fully established in the land. They were still in Medina, and every now and then there was a battle, there was an attack. There were some danger from the enemy and the disbelievers they had more authority, much more authority compared to the Muslims. So over here, the believers are being encouraged that don't think that your enemy is going to cause failure, that they will defeat you, they will make you helpless. No. You keep on doing what you're supposed to do. And Allah will help you in done so de la her young so if you help the cause of Allah, Allah will help you. If you obey Allah, Allah will assist you.
And if you turn away, then how do you expect the help of Allah?
insulted Anca budaya for we learn, I'm happy Valentina. Yama, Luna sejati is the owner, sir, am I a commode? Or do those people who do evil deeds think that they can outrun us, they can outstrip us, they can defeat us. Evil is what they judge. They can never defeat this religion of Allah.
They can force you, but they cannot overcome your heart. Remember, your heart is with you.
A person can force you, they can impose whatever they want on you. But at the end of the day, what you have in your heart, they cannot change that.
They cannot change that. And if you have yaqeen if you have determination, if you have the desire to obey Allah, Allah will create ways for you he will open the ways for you. Because no one can cause failure to Allah. Allah can defeat everyone. No one can defeat Allah. You want to obey Allah, you trust on him, see how we will open the waste for you. And if you don't have the desire, then obviously How can you be assisted?
