Al-Ahzab 9-27 Tafsir 10-17
It will come in from pecan women as fellow men come, remember when they came at you from above you and from below you who came
the machine, the armies that you knew the observed all of them came Jabu come in order to attack you men fall pecan above you What does it mean by this
meaning from the upper side of the valley, from the east of Medina.
Woman as far as i mean come and from lower than you as far as seen fell and this is the opposite of Allah.
So as far as I'm income, meaning lower side of the valley, which is the west of Medina, so they came from the east of Medina and also west of Medina. So imagine the Muslims were completely trapped, how that there was no way they could go outside. And there was no apart from where there were saved east and west as well as income and also before the main focus on woman as Phantom income.
So they came from the east and the west. So what was the state of the Muslims? What is what is a Bizarro? And when the eyes shifted in fear, zealot J Yeah, line z, z, yeah, ln Z and Z this when something bends onto one side
and something bends onto one side? It turns it deviates. And the sale of b'soeuf Mazda wallbottle xhale of bussel is when the eyes shift from where they should be looking at.
When the eyes are basically not looking at where they should be looking.
Like for example, in class, where should you be looking either attitudes, or attitude towards the front or the board? But if let's say you look elsewhere, this is what
they have deviation of us.
So what is mentioned over here, what is zelle? What is our sorrow? When the eyes they shifted, meaning they turned away in fear from everything, you weren't able to focus? You weren't able to look at one thing constantly you were looking here and there. Why? out of extreme fear?
You know, when you're afraid of someone, extremely afraid of someone, let's say even one person, can you face them?
Can you think about it? and be honest, can you face them? No. Do you have the confidence to look at them in the eye and speak to them? You don't because you become nervous. You become afraid. You don't have the confidence to look at them.
But we see over here, imagine an army of 10,000 people. The more you look at them, the more frightened you're going to become.
So what is xalatan absorbed the eyes they had shifted. They weren't able to focus in one place. You were constantly looking about, oh my god, they're here. And they're here as well. And the trench? Is it big enough? Is it wide enough? and constantly they were guarding the trench? So you can imagine is xalatan absolve?
What benalla till colluvial hanergy. And the hearts they had reached up to the throats
of Han Ajit is a Florida handler from the reflectors had known Jean and handwara. throat. So the hearts had reached up to the throat literally. No, this is an expression, what does it show? extreme fear that as if the heart was going to leap out who's going to jump out?
Anyone extremely nervous when you're extremely frightened? What happens? Your heartbeat goes very, very fast, isn't it?
You become so nervous. And sometimes people in their fear what happens? They feel as though they're going to throw up. Whatever's inside is going to come out. It comes up to the throat. So we're volatile, colluvial hanergy, whatever. No, no belaire, his Luna. And you all were thinking about Allah, Luna, the different assumptions, various assumptions, many assumptions, many, many thoughts. What does it mean by this?
That in that state of extreme fear and nervousness, when the enemy had come upon you, surrounded by the enemy, on the other hand, who raised the Jews, they had violated the treaty as well they had broken it.
So in this state of extreme fear, what was the state of the Muslims in general?
If xalatan absorbed well, Bella tilaka Lupo
and the people they were thinking various thoughts about a loss of parameter What does well known have been known
Also known as linoone, is the plural of one. And what is one? Thought assumption?
And a loon Florida over here, what does it show? Various thoughts, many thoughts?
And why is it many thoughts? Why is it floral?
Because there were many different kinds of people. On the side of the Muslims even.
There were people like Abu Bakar of the random people like remodel the learner.
And there were people who were a bit weak in their fate.
And there were people who were hypocrites completely.
You can imagine a group of people working together, each person has a different level of conviction, a different level of commitment, a different level of positive thinking, negative thinking, and as a result of that, their thoughts are going to be different, isn't it?
No two people are going to think alike. For example, you and your family, you go through particular circumstances, a particular situation afterwards you share with one another, you know, I was thinking this and the other person says no, I was thinking about that.
Every person thinks differently based on what their Eman their level of conviction, their level of commitment, they're thinking, every person thinks differently.
So what's a little known Avila, his Luna, because there were different kinds of people in the Muslim army. This is why people entertained different different thoughts about a loss of
some people, they entertained positive thoughts about
thoughts about a loss, help, reward
and other people? What kind of thoughts were they entertaining thoughts of despair, of failure of having been deceived, of having made the wrong choice? What Allah noona belay is Luna, you were entertaining various talks about Allah soprano.
And this is something that is very common.
But a person needs to see that whenever he is in a difficult situation. How does he think about a loss of hunter?
do you expect help from Him? Do you expect reward from him? Do you believe that Allah has promised is true? Do you believe that in Tunstall law, I am so calm. If you help the cause of Allah, Allah will also help you. Or you have other kinds of thoughts. I've made the wrong choice. Religion is not supposed to be that difficult. Why are these people making it so difficult? Forget it. It's not an obligation on me. I'm leaving. I can't handle this anymore. What does Oh no, no, no, no, no, each person thinks differently based on what
the level of Eman And he has the level of attachment that he has with
the stronger relationship he has of Allah, the better positive thoughts he will have. The weaker the relationship, the more negative thoughts
what doesn't know in a bit, let his Luna but we have to see that. How do we think forget about how other people are thinking? We need to think how do we think about Allah? subhanaw taala in difficult situations? Do we think Allah has abandoned us?
Do we think he's putting us into a lot of difficulties being unjust towards us? This is unfair. Because if we think like that, then we complain and we say, This is not fair. And why mean and why is it so hard? And when will this be over?
Whatever a person is thinking that's what comes out on the tongue.
If a person is thinking negatively, He will speak negative words. If a person is thinking positively you will speak positive words.
So the way we react in difficult situations is how we think and that's how we think about Allah subhanaw taala what is known of Allah, his Luna
and we see over here that the Muslims who is being addressed over here, yeah, you already know when
the videos are being addressed. And this ayah shows to us that they were extremely frightened.
This expression that is evident of Sato bellaterra, colluvial hanergy. What does that show a state of extreme fear? So this shows to us that yes, Muslims were extremely afraid. Now would you think that that's against event
can you know, because it's very, very natural to feel afraid. Very natural. mozzarella Cena. When you stopped during a mistake, how did he react?
turned around and ran and dim. Look back, isn't it so he was afraid
When Allah subhanaw taala told me to go back, he had to go to Egypt and call around to the heat. What did he say? For a halfway afternoon? I fear they will kill me. He was a messenger of Allah. And still he was afraid. Ibrahim retsina When the angels came to him, and they didn't eat his food, was he afraid? Of course, he was afraid. The profits out of loans. And when he received the first revelation, was he afraid? Of course he was. So it's only natural to be afraid.
It's only natural.
Now sometimes what happens if a person feels afraid, we think oh, that has no, look, I
don't have any faith in God. You think this lizard can harm you? Why are you screaming? Because we think having fear of something means weakness of faith. It's not necessary.
People have different types of fears. Some people, they have fear of coming up to the microphone. Other people, they have fear of speaking up in public. Other people, they have fear of talking to strangers. People have different types of fears. Some people they're afraid of ants, flies, bugs, spiders.
So people have different types of fears. But if a person has fear, it doesn't mean they don't have faith. This is something natural. And fearing is not a sin. It's not a crime. However, there's just one thing that we have to be careful about, that this fear should not overcome us in a way that it doesn't let us do what we're supposed to do.
Like, for example, we see that as a habit at this time, they were extremely afraid. But did they leave the trenches and go and hide in their homes? Did they know they stood there? They were extremely frightened, but they did their work.
So similarly, when we were afraid, okay, fear is natural. But at that time, what should we remember that what I have to do is also important and keep thinking about that. Keep thinking about that, and you'll be able to do it.
Whenever you can Huneck of the Boolean movement owner, they're the believers were tested over to Leah bad lamb well, or Bella. Yeah. Eva Tila, what does that mean? To test someone in a way through an extremely difficult situation. It's such a test that's not easy. So who nalli COVID tullian manana. The believers, they were severely tested and tried over here, at which time at this time, when the trenches were being dug. And afterwards when the enemy was standing beyond the trenches, when alika battalion moving on? Why were they tested?
The distinguish between those were sincere and those who are not sincere
was Zulu. Zell and shedinja. And they were shaken with a severe shaking. Zulu xylem lamb zillah zillah. What does that mean to slip zellen cotton, the slipping of the foot. And over here we see Tuesday in the word, right, Zara Lanza, LA, Tuesday.
So Zen Zilla?
What does it show repetition of the letters, isn't it? xylem and then xylem again.
Now this repetition of the letters, what does it show the repetition of the action as well. Zilla is to slip and Zelda is to constantly slip that when a person is slipping again and again, he just cannot stand straight. When does this happen?
Like for example, in an earthquake, when the ground is constantly shaking, that you manage to balance yourself, but what happens? What happens because the ground is constantly shaking, you fall down.
Something that you can imagine is like, you know, they have those jumping places for children,
jumping paths, or like
If five people are jumping at the same time, one person falls, he tries to get but because constantly the place beneath his feet is moving what's going to happen. He's gonna fall again. This is what Delta lies literally, do not be able to stand have balance, that a person's foot constantly slips.
And Zara's that is to shake something to tremble something.
So Zulu, they were shaken. They were trembled. xilin shaida, a severe shaking, a mighty shock.
Because think about it for an entire month, the Michigan had laid siege outside Medina, entire month. And you can imagine a lot of things must have happened.
have been times when they were extremely hungry. There must have been times when they were extremely afraid. for an entire month. Over to Leo moon was all the roses Alan shraddha. What can we learn from this ayah that believers are tested?
believers are definitely tested. Allah subhanaw taala does not leave believers in a state of comfort for a long time.
You know that it doesn't happen like that.
Believers are constantly put to tests who nanika to let me know, if you think about it since the time the Muslims had migrated to Molina, one battle after the other, one difficulty after the other.
were they doing something wrong? They weren't doing anything wrong. What they were doing was perfectly right. But Allah tests the believers. Why, in order to distinguish between the sincere and those who just dark, those who just make big claims that distinguish the committed from the one who is not committed difficulties, they distinguish between the one who is sincere and the one was not sincere. This is what they do.
And tests they also give you an opportunity to improve. Why? Because when you go through a test what happens? You learn about your mistakes, you learn about your weak points, you learn about where you need to improve. Whereas the normal circumstances, all of these things are hidden.
But when you're going through a difficult situation or test, you realize, I don't have that.
Don't you realize these things
I need to improve on my anger management.
After tests, this is what you realize. So tests are also an opportunity to improve yourself.
Who nanika the Tullio movement owner was zero, zilch, zero and shanita. And you see this word Zulu. This is something that we need to focus on a little bit, that what happens, you learn about something, you try to start that particular good thing in yourself develop that good habit. And what happens? You fall down again, you make a mistake again, then you get up again, and you say, Okay, I'm going to try again, I'm not going to do this wrong, I'm still going to do this right thing. But what happens? You fall again?
Many times what happens because we keep falling? We think there is no point. Forget about it. Like for example, you take one test, like a justice translation test. You don't do that? Well, you try again, you don't do that? Well, you try it. And you don't do that. Well. Some people, they say maybe it's not meant for me.
I'm telling you, many of you have actually come up to me and said this, maybe this is something that I'm not supposed to be doing. Maybe it's not meant for me, but I see you, you're still coming. And I'm sure you've improved, right?
So tests give you an opportunity to improve. Because if we don't go through these hardships, we will know where we need to improve. So just because you have failed once and you have failed another time and you failed another time, doesn't mean you need to give up no results. The results aren't shahida.
They were shaken severely. But what happened.
Those who were sincere, their sincerity grew stronger. Those who were committed, their commitment grew stronger, they earned more reward. They attained closeness to a loss.
The thing is that each and every person is tested believer or non believer, sincere believer or hypocrite.
But it's only the believer who benefits from the test. You know why? Because he turns to Allah becomes closer to Allah. He learns about his mistakes and he improves them. This is a purpose of the test
was zero, zilch and shalida. So they basically come in order to polish us. These tests are so that we get more refined, more polished, more clean.
What a vehicle when I feel Kona, and remember when the hypocrites when levena fiocco lubega Maradona and those people in whose hearts is a disease.
They were saying, Melba Arden Allahu wa rasuluh illa.
Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion. On the one hand, the believers, how are they positive, cooperative, encouraging one another, strengthening one another. And on the other hand, there were also some people who were negative themselves and they were also spreading negativity.
And who are they? When African when Latina feel called to be a model when African understood those who are not really Muslims,
just showing themselves to be Muslim.
And these were a part of the Muslim army.
They were part of the Muslim army, just as earlier as well, they accompany the Muslims. Why?
Because they claim to be Muslims. And if they did not accompany the Muslims, then they would look very, very bad. This is why they would come to the masjid and pray. This is why they would give us a cat. And this is why they will also fight along with the Prophet sallallahu. Why?
To just show that there were believers.
But along with the Mana 15 There were also when Medina eukanuba murghab those people in whose hearts is a disease which diseases this weakness of your cane weakness of
they weren't as convinced as the rest of the Muslims or weren't as strong in their belief.
So because of the lack of your cane, because of the lack of belief, what happened at this time, at this difficulty, this weakness it came out, it was exposed. How in the words that they said that malware then Allahu Allah, Zulu, Allah and His Messenger have not promised us they love Lola except deception.
A lion is messenger. That's what they keep saying, you'll be victorious, you will be victorious. But where's the victory? It's been a month. And we're only suffering. We're only increasing in our hunger in our fatigue in our exhaustion. Whereas this promise, this promise of victory? It's nothing except rule. What is the rule to deceive someone? How do you deceive someone
sometimes by lying. So this is just a lie. There's no fulfillment of this promise. It's all false hopes that we have been given.
That if we're supposed to be believers, and things should be perfectly normal for us, how come everybody has come to attack us? And if we are on the truth, then we should have the upper hand we should be stronger. But how come our enemy is stronger than us? How come we're so hungry, and they have so much food? How can we're so exhausted, and they're perfectly fine.
More than a lot a lot of suitable in level over what we see over here. That just as the believers were being tested the monasticon and those who people who had weak faith, even they were being tested,
whether when African were being tested, the Messenger of Allah was also being tested, every person was being tested.
But the moon African, those who are weak in faith, how do they react with extreme negativity, of blaming attitude,
extreme negativity and blaming attitude, they began something like an anti Islam campaign.
And many people at difficult times, this is what they start doing.
Instead of focusing on what they should be doing, they start talking negatively about others.
For example, I remember when we went for Hajj, in the group that we were in
the people who were supposed to bring food to us, they wouldn't bring food. Like one day, we didn't get food until almost at a shutdown. No breakfast, no lunch admin.
And they had genuine reasons behind that. They were stuck in traffic something or the other was going on. And the person who was in charge, he would be nowhere to be seen. You could never find him. So some people What are they doing? Busy, they were just doing they're doing their decorative stuff are reading Quran, focusing on the rites of Hajj, adminer. And whatever snacks were available, they just ate those drank juice had they had biscuits, that's it. And other people.
They were getting so upset. They were getting together and saying that we're going to go Sue these people, we're going to go complain about these people, we're going to do this, we're going to do that. And you could see the anger on their faces and the frustration on their faces, and how upset they were. And by talking negatively, they were making each other negative as well. But imagine their entire time and Mina went in this kind of frustration. And other people. They were busy doing their worship,
there is the fall making their doors, remembering the loss of God. So you see, difficulties come.
And sometimes Allah subhanaw taala tests us through people. And sometimes it assists directly through the situations that we're in.
Like, for example, the story that I just mentioned to you this test came from who through the people right?
Now one is that you get distracted or this person, it's his fault.
It's their fault, they should not do this, they should not say that they should do something different. And the other is you accept the situation as it is. And you think, Okay, what can we do now?
What am I supposed to do?
We see that the munafo clean. What were they doing? blaming? Where's the help? Where's the help? You said there was gonna be help? Why is it so difficult right now? And there were other Muslims who accepted that yes, it's going to be difficult. Life is tough.
What did they do? They kept on digging the trenches and they kept on guarding the trenches, where they were hungry, instead of yelling at one another. Instead of saying negative things about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what did they do? They just died rocks around their bellies. That's it.
So they're completely two different ways of reacting completely two different ways.
A person who has strong Eman, what does he think if I am suffering this difficulty? Allah subhanaw taala has allowed it to come my way. And you know what I'm being tested right now.
And what is being seen? How do I behave? How do I react?
And when you have this routine, that I'm getting rewarded for this, I'm getting rewarded for this. Like, I remember one of the sisters at the hedge group, she became extremely ill. And her sister said, doesn't matter. her sins are being washed away.
Now, people could have said you, Ill need medication, where's this organizer? Where's this person, you need to be taken to the doctor. And there's this reset or her sense of being washed in a completely different way of thinking right?
When you know that you have been put in the difficult situation by Allah subhanaw taala. Then you expect help from who? Allah, you expect reward from Allah. You don't look at other people. You don't point fingers at others. You look at yourself, what do I need to do?
Because sometimes this happens that people they start this anti so and so campaign and anti Suunto campaign, oh, this person and that person in this thing. And all of their energies are dedicated towards speaking up against that person speaking up against that policy, speaking up against a particular system.
And like this, they waste their energies, they waste their reward, they waste a great opportunity that I must spend on asking. So the NFL team, what was their reaction? malware or than Allahu Allah, Sulu illa rura
what is called authority for two men whom and when a faction of them said a group of who then when African some of them, they said, Yeah, yes, Reba, oh people obviously, the main African addressed the unsolved, but how do they address them? Or people off yesterday, now yesterday is the name of what the name of the city of Medina
but this was the name of that city until
the prophets are allowed us and have migrated.
And after the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah migrated the name of the city was Medina to NaVi the city of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
So when they said yeah,
instead of saying, Oh people of Medina,
instead of saying, All our people are our brothers, when they said, Oh, people are yesterday.
They were excluding the Mujahideen and the prophets of Allah.
Because the more hygiene work from where, from aka the profits are allowed us and was also from mocha, and the unsolved, they were people off yesterday. That was a country that was a place that's the place that they used to live in.
So they were arousing in people, feelings of nationalism, feelings of tribalism, not feelings of unity. Yeah, at layer three or people of yesterday, layer mahkamah calm, you do not have any stability.
For Giroux, therefore return go back home. You can't stand up against these machine. Go back home Lambo karma calm macom from Cyprus letters of well meme kamioka is to stand and mukaan is understood in two ways.
First of all, muqaam meaning position.
So, you have no position, you have no say you have no authority, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and these Mahajan they decide whatever they want to, they invite all of this trouble and they put you to all of this hard labor and difficulty you have to suffer, you have no say you have no authority. Therefore, this leave these Muslims leave the profits out of out of them and go home. fudger go back, they never listened to you.
Secondly, muqaam is also understood as macom meaning place of state residents, that you have no firmness or stability by the trenches with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you cannot stand up against the exam.
You cannot stand up against the exam you have no place over here. No place of standing. This is not a place of standing. This is a place of dying. Therefore do you go back home Go back to your houses in Medina.
So they had become weak themselves. And they were spreading this weakness amongst the rest of the Muslim
As well, and especially which Muslims, those who are related to them, and they weren't calling them saying that you are like our brothers and faith. No, they said all people of yesterday, reminding them of the time before Islam, that look, we were perfectly fine. Things were perfectly normal for us. And now the situation has completely changed. Leave the profits out of ISIS and leave these tragedies. abandon them, go home.
lama kamada confirm Giroux. And they're also figuratively saying to them that return to your previous ways, leave them look at all this difficulty that has come since you become Muslim. Leave all of this. Let's go back to our previous ways.
What do we see over here?
What does it mean to the person who has weak Eman? What does he do?
He demoralizes other people as well.
I'm sure that many of you also discuss amongst yourselves the challenges that you're experiencing the difficulties that you may be experiencing.
Now, what is that, when your sister share some difficulty with you say, yeah, so difficult.
By the way, I'm thinking I'm not going to come up to me.
Now, the other is that you say? Yeah, maybe I should do the same. I mean, 21 justice quite a bit. Please, I've done two terms. Maybe I'll do later.
And the other is that you say that? No, no, you've come so far. I'm sure you can do it. This is just a difficult time for you. Keep going alone will help you.
One is that you discourage other people. And the other is that you motivated.
What were they doing? They were discouraging the rest of the Muslims. You can't do this lambu Carmela Can you see what they're saying? You can not do this. And sometimes this is what we're told as well. You cannot do this. This is too difficult. too hard. Therefore go back, leave it five zero, leave this and go back.
Where's that Dino? And he seeks permission who seeks permission for you coming home, a group from them a group from
from an African. But Jonathan main home them over here is not just talking about them an African but also when Latina feel called to be murdered. And there are two different people don't confuse between the two. When African people like to live away, but when Medina kuruva Mara, they were Muslim, but they just had weak faith.
So as the vino ferrea coming home, a group from these people, the main African and alladhina, Kuru Bay, Mara. They were asking permission from who and nebbia the profits or losses. What provision
to go back home.
Do not stand at the trenches because it had been a month, a long time have passed. But imagine you're on duty for one week. What do you think? That's it, man? I can't tell this anymore. It's too cold. I'm exhausted. I need to sleep. I need my bed. But we see that the sincere believers, they were standing constantly. And those people who are weak, they began asking for permission, please let us go back home. Please exempt us from this duty. Because just standing at the trenches was extremely difficult. You know why? You had to stand extremely alert, extremely alert, and you were risking your life. Imagine somebody across the trench shoots an arrow, and you're done. That's it.
And he had to be extremely alert, keeping a watch on around you that is anybody daring to come close to the trench? If they are, keep them away. This work of guarding is not easy. So those people who had weak faith, what do they want? They wanted to go back.
And what excuse did they present Yoko Luna they were saying in Nobu, Tana Aurora, indeed, our homes are unprotected. We need to go back home and guard our houses because our houses are not protected. I will I will know from the rooftop is I in Waldo and Allah is what that which is open that whose exposure
is a means of embarrassment and shame. So that which must be covered. Remember, we have read this word earlier as well. I will often miss
the private parts of women. Because the private part is what? Something that has to be covered. If you expose it. It's a source of embarrassment.
And it's a source of degradation and sell as well rotten luck on three times of privacy for you.
So in the Luton era, our houses are open, they should be protected. But they're open, they're exposed, unprotected and we fear for them
now in the houses
Were Who? Women, children, all because all of the men were were they, at the trenches. The entire population was like this, all the men were at the trenches, and only the women, children and all they were at home.
So they said, we're afraid for our houses. For our families, they're unprotected. There's no man guarding them. So let us go back home and guard our families and protect them. We're afraid for their lives, we're afraid for their security.
But Allah subhanaw taala says women are older. But they were not about unprotected how
the entire city was guarded. How could their houses be unprotected? When you have the army standing at the edges of the city? Well, Maria, viola, they were not actually exposed. This was just an excuse that they wanted to go home. Allah Subhana Allah says, In UD Luna, they only want a euro except less to flee. They just wanted to flee from there, they just wanted to flee from battle. They didn't want to suffer any more hardship. I've just imagine such an incredible difficulty, such as severe difficulty, that each and every single individual was needed. Because how much was the mystic army 10,000. And the Muslims, there were about 3000, very few compared to the machine. And on top of
that, less food, less people, so much work to do. And here there are people asking for permission to go back home. What does it show?
What does it show that they prefer their own comfort, over the comfort of the profits on
their preferred their own safety, over the safety of Islam.
They prefer their own worldly success over the success of Islam.
You see, there are some situations where every single individual is needed. Like, for example, the expedition of the book. Remember, we learned through the Toba?
Not even one person was to remain behind every person was to go along Why?
Because it was such a severe difficulty, every individual was needed, every person was valuable.
And how is is determined by the amount of work.
That if the work is a lot than how many people do need
many people, then at that time, you cannot say, Oh, I'm too busy, I cannot come I have this to do I have to do
when the work is a lot when the work is urgent, then you can not prefer your own self over the work.
And we see this not just in our team, but also elsewhere as well.
For instance, when it comes to extremely important things, at certain companies, what happens, people who are working at the offices, they go to the plants, and they start working over there in the factories, they're working over there, they're counting all the stuff if they have any work to do, they are working along with the other people, every single individual is needed. Even the owner of the company will be there working along with the rest of the people. Why? Because every single individual is needed.
And when it comes to our Deen as well, there are certain times when every individual is needed.
And we have to see what work needs to get done.
And believe me, there's always work that needs to get done.
And in these situations, we can not prefer ourselves because if each person begins to prefer himself, his family, his house, his priorities, and he starts walking away, then who will do this work?
Who will do this work?
Like for example, at this time, but 100 other many people who are volunteering, who are working as in charges as teachers as playing different different roles, if every single one of them said no, I have work to do at home I'm sorry you can't do this anymore, I have to travel I have to go here I have to go there I can't come these many days a week and what will happen
what will happen?
Will you be able to study
will you be able to know what about your tests will somebody be able to mark them and guide you know
so, we see that when work needs to get done? We have to prefer that we cannot prefer ourselves and if a person you know unless there is a genuine reason which we have studied about intellectual Basma okay. I do not need to repeat it, but we have studied it earlier, that if there's a genuine reason that really prevents a person from coming, as we learned earlier, absorbing material that is
Another thing, but there's no genuine reason we can do our work along with the situation that we're in, then we cannot prefer ourselves over the deed.
Because if we do that, then the work will not be accomplished. And the people who are weak in faith, weaken their commitment and their determination. They're the ones who wish to escape Ed Luna Illa, Ferrara, they don't like to do their work. Allah subhanaw taala says what I will do here to align him. And if they had been entered upon them, men authority her from its surrounding regions of thought as a Florida out of our port of call for, and it's used for the side of something, the boundary, the outskirt edges.
So while our dhokli that are laying him, what entered upon them, the armies of the enemy, so if the enemy entered upon them, main authority here, from the outskirts of the city, meaning from all of the sides of the city,
if the city of Medina was under attack, that the machine had entered into the city, and obviously when they would enter into the city, where would they go to the houses of people, then the houses would be, then there would be unprotected.
So Allah subhanaw taala says, if they had been entered upon from all the surrounding regions, so muscle fitness, and fitness had been demanded of them. So elu
so you know, seen him xlm and so on over here, gives a sense of if they were exhorted, if they were invited to, if they're were asked to do what and fitness
and fitness over here, first treachery, betrayal, betray who the prophets are a lot of them and the Muslims, treachery against to the Prophet sort of autism and the Muslims. Meaning if the machine had entered into the city, they had invaded the city, and from these
from these people who are weak and fake, if they exhorted them to deceive the Muslims, if they asked them to deceive the Muslims, then what would these men do? That, oh, surely they would have done it, they would have committed
meaning then they would definitely come and side with
the machine and not the Muslims.
Are you with me
that if the machine had invaded the city, the Muslims are under attack.
They're under attack. And then the house of these people are really our Buddha.
But the machine instead of attacking these hypocrites, they asked them side with us leave these Muslims side with us so much. So it will fit into a las panatela says they would have definitely done it that meaning then they would readily fight
then they wouldn't say no, no, please let us go back home, then they would definitely fight along with you, along with the Michigan against you against the Muslims will matter bus will be happy and they would not remain in it that are bazoo Lamba. lobby. So what does that mean to stay to remain? So will matter the bus will be what does he refer to their homes and they will not remain in their homes, unless you like except briefly.
Or be here can also refer to fitna that they would not remain away from it except briefly, meaning they would readily come to it, they wouldn't think twice, they would not give even a moment to think they would immediately join the enemy, they would immediately start fighting against Muslims. What this is, is show to us that when these people are asked to sacrifice in the way of Allah subhanaw taala, they have a list of excuses.
When they're asked to sacrifice in the way of Allah, they begin to think about what their houses, their families, their children, their work, their possessions.
But if they were really under attack, their life was in danger.
Their families were in danger, then what would they do?
They would immediately fight they would immediately enter into battle, then they would not care what about my life?
They would immediately fight they would immediately enter into the battle. When they're asked to sacrifice in the way of Hello What do they think my life, my money, my children, my house, my family. But if it comes to personal benefit, personal gain,
then they're not concerned about what they're going to lose what they're going to gain. What are they concerned about?
just finishing the Muslims This is how much they hate the Muslims.
This is how much hatred they have against the Muslims. They wouldn't delay even a little bit well Matt Allah bus will be here in line.
What do we see over here
The reason behind weakness of faith the reason behind hypocrisy is what love the
love of them.
And this makes a person treacherous. This makes a person deceive others. This makes a person break his promises, break his commitments go against his word, how to think about it, how does love of dunya make a person break his promises, deceive other people. He will do anything in order to gain something.
Anything. Whether it means lying, cheating, breaking promises, going against your commitment going against your word, you said you were going to come, but you don't show up. You said you're going to do this work, but you don't do it. This is what for personal gain for worldly benefit.
And we see that the Mona 15. This was a problem that they suffered from alladhina Fuca Ruby model those who are weak in their faith, this is a problem that they suffered from. They just wanted personal benefit. They didn't care about the benefit of Islam.
What do they care about? personal benefit? Which is why if the enemy attack the Muslims, and they had the opportunity to save their lives, by attacking the Muslims, they will do it.
They wouldn't care at that time. No, this goes against my faith. No, I'll be breaking my promises with the Muslims. No, he's selfish. He doesn't wish to sacrifice a loss of power that says, Well, according
to law, Herman kaaboo. And they had already promised Allah before What promise that law you will learn a lot about that they would not turn their backs. Now you will learn about what does it mean by turning your back, especially from the battlefield, fleeing? So they had already promised Allah, that they will remain steadfast, they will obey, and they will not retreat, they will not flee.
But now what are they doing? asking permission with false excuses so that they can go back?
What can are the lucky masuleh? Allah warrants but the promise of a law that's going to be questioned about we are going to be questioned about that. Many times it happens that we make commitments, we say we're going to do something, we say we're going to follow the rules. But when it comes to doing it, we forget about them.
Why? Because of worldly gain worldly benefits. Sometimes this word again, is just about having a cup of coffee in class. Think about it. We made a promise we're going to follow the rules. Look at this board. What does it say? No eating, no drinking, no cell phones, no talking.
And when we come, we sign an agreement that yes, we're going to follow the rules we give our word. But sometimes just for the sake of never worldly benefit.
Coffee smell so nice. It's warm. And if I don't have it right now, it will get cold
liver worldly benefit, what happens? We forget the promises that we have made. But if a person is concerned about his promises, then he will not prefer that coffee. He will not prefer that food.
In the case of the hypocrites, what was the promise they had made, they will not turn their backs on the battlefield. Allah says we're gonna honor the promise that you've made with a boy you're going to be questioned about that.
And remember that of course I say to them, lay and fair Komal Ferraro never will fleeing benefit you in federal terminal mode to will cutely. If you do flee from death, or murder, being killed, fleeing from death, fleeing from being killed, is it going to benefit you?
Think about it.
What do we think that's going to benefit right? A person was about to be killed, he managed to save his life. Is that a benefit to him?
Come on, be realistic. how he's going to live. He was about to die, but his life was saved. Is he going to benefit? We think yes, why he's going to live. But Allah says palainian for our como el Faro, in Ferrara, terminal motio will Caitlyn Why?
Because what he then and then if you flee from that, if you flee from battle, if you flee from being killed, let the materna in la colina, how long will you live?
You will not be given enjoyment except initial. How long will you live for a few more years? A few more days, a few more months. That's it. Eventually you are going to die.
You see the problem over here was that the one after thing and those were weaken faith. They did not wish to stand at the 100. Why? Because they were afraid for their lives. They didn't want to die.
They didn't want to die. simple reason. They didn't want to suffer any hardship.
And because of that they were willing to leave the profits or a lot of cinema over there. They were willing to leave the rest of the Muslims over there and they were willing to even say
side with the wish to clean, which the previous ad show some Muscle and Fitness. So they were even willing to side with the machine leave their Islam. But Allah subhanaw taala says if you manage to save your life, how long will you live? Isn't this a fact that coluna sins are a quarter note? Every person is going to taste that? Of course. How long will you live? Only an alphabet only for a few days, and the enjoyment that you will get? It's going to be extremely little
old say to them menza lady, you're a civil criminal law, who is it that can protect you from Allah? In a rather be consumed and if he intended some evil with you?
If Allah wishes to inflict some harm upon you, can anyone save you? Can anyone protect you? No. Oh our honor become Rama. If Allah wishes to give you some Rama, can anyone take the drama away from you know, will he do another home and they will not find for themselves mendola he besides a lot when he when anybody when an acetal nor any helper? What does this is show to us that the owner of benefit the owner of loss, the owner of all gain and suffering is a loss. If a person gains anything, he loses anything it's from a loss.
So why run from Allah?
When there's no widely known asleep besides Allah, no one can harm you No one can benefit you but Allah why run from Allah? What's the point? What's the benefit? no benefit.
Okay, we'll stop over here and the rest of the ayat are connected to each other.
Let's listen to the recitation of these verses.
