Al-Ahzab 28-35 Tafsir 28-31
Jean Bismillahirrahmanirrahim lesson number 220 SoTL I am number 28 to 35
yeah are you Hannah bu? Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only as logical say to your wives, Which ones? All of them. What should you say to them? That incontinent if you should do retinal hiatal hernia, if you should desire the worldly life with Xena to her and its adornment further, Elena, then come on that they are gonna, I will provide for you what was said you're gonna sarahan jameelah and I will give you a gracious release, I will provide for you and I will let you go.
We're in container. But if you should do read in a law have Allah Sula, who, what Darrell Hirata, but if you should desire Allah and His messenger and the home of the Hereafter, then remember that in our little mercenary demon, Kunta agilon Lima, then Indeed Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you, a great reward
we see in these ayat that the prophets are of our descendant is directly being addressed. Yeah, a human NaVi you.
And remember that the address to the profits that alone is elemental Quran is one of three types. And over here, this is the address that is specific to him. Because sometimes the command is such that the addresses to him but indirectly, who is being told, the believers are being told, and sometimes the command is for him, and it's also for his oma. But over here, this command is specifically for him, it's exclusively for him.
Because this issue, this matter was about him only.
So yeah, you know, bu, or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, only as well as you can say to your wives, and the school, this is fair, and the school is off, would you meaning it was imperative for him, it was incumbent on him, he had to say this to his wives, and who was telling him to say this to his wives, Allah subhanaw taala. So this poll is off, would you you have to say this to them.
As well educate your wives, what that incontinent if you all were container, this is feminine, and container, the noon shutter at the end that denotes that this is feminine. So if you are our duty dinner, you all wish, meaning all of you desire, you have in mind, your purpose, your goal, your wish, is a higher the dunya was enough to have the life of this world and it's Xena. Your goal is to have a lot of fun and luxury, and plenty of blessings in this dunya that has become your goal. If that is your goal. Further, Alena then come to Elena from the rotators I know well or lose or lose height. And there are what does that mean to call someone to hide literally, but then from that it
is also used for just calling someone just as we learn that Yeah, lol kita Alo Illa Kalimantan Sawa in banana obey nickel.
So Fattah Elena, and again the unknown at the end, it indicates feminine plural.
So all of you come, oma terracon I will provide for you our
motto akuna meme de matar. And what does matar mean? worldly benefits. And it's also understood as temporary benefit because any benefit of this dunya it is temporary, it is transitory, its enjoyment is little, its lifespan is little.
So my dear akuna, I will provide for you, meaning I will give you whatever you're asking for.
And after that what you said, and I will release you all, to Sarah Connor seen her the three
and the three literally is to let animals loose for pasture for grazing, do not restrict them, just let them loose. So that they can eat wherever they want, whatever they want, how much ever they want without any restrictions, any prohibitions, any constraints, any limitations. This is what the story literally means.
And from this The story is also used for giving a rasa and allowance a permission to someone to do something because
When someone is allowed to do something, and what does it mean? They can do whenever they want whatever they want, however they want. They don't have to follow certain laws, they're not prohibited to the city is also used for allowance.
And from this award, the city is also used for divorce. Why? Because when a woman is divorced, then she has become free. Whereas when a woman is married, then she isn't the relationship of marriage. It's like a wedlock. She's locked, meaning she cannot marry somebody else. But once she is divorced, then she can marry any other men.
So the three is also used for divorce. Another word that is used for divorces for now.
And follow up also means to let something loose to let something free and talaq is from it. Luckily, even even a scandal and its lack of evil is to let a camera loose so that it can graze wherever it wants, how much ever it once. So, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam are being told over here, that if your goal is the life of this dunya and it's Xena, it's where the glitter, you want the wealth of this dunya you want the luxury and the enjoyment of this dunya then come I will give you whatever you ask for mK dyrcona but after that you cannot stay with me
or Sadiq Khan, then I will let you go meaning I will divorce you In what way? Sir? Ah hum jameelah a release that is beautiful German Jean meme lamb, it's also used for that which is elegant, that which is pleasing. So I will let you go so hand Jamila, I will divorce you and I will not force you to stay with me. Nor will I send you in a humiliating way. No, I will send you in an honorable way. This is a choice that you have.
On the other hand were incontinent, but if you should, if you are to return Allahu wa Sula, who, if on the other hand you desire, your goal, your purpose is Allah and His messenger. What does it mean by that?
You want the pleasure of Allah, and you want the companionship of His Messenger. If your desire is Allah and His Messenger
of Allah and the home of the Hereafter, not the home of this dunya but the home of the Hereafter, if that is what you choose, and you forego your right of this dunya then remember that for in the Lucha than Indeed Allah, our agenda he has prepared Lilly masina team in Kunta agilon as Lima. For those who are excellent among you, those who do good among you, Allah has prepared for them what I did on our Lima a great reward
because you have chosen the alpha. So Allah will give you a great reward in the alpha, he will not disappoint you, since your sacrifice will be Aleem your edger will also be ugly.
And if you choose dunia, then what is that Dumpty d'amato Mata temporary enjoyment.
So we see over here that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being commanded to give a choice to his wives, these ayat are known as I add off the heat,
the heat is choice.
And this was revealed concerning the wives of the Prophet sort of odd isn't that either you choose Allah and His Messenger, and you should be willing to sacrifice, you should be willing to live a life of difficulty and sacrifice. And if you do not wish to do that, then it's okay. You can take whatever worldly benefits you want, but then you have to leave, you cannot be in companionship of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
you cannot be awarded the status of the wife of the Prophet sallallahu.
Now the question is, why were the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam offered this choice? Why? Why was it that they could be given worldly enjoyment worldly benefit, and still they could enjoy the status of being the wives of the Prophet sallallahu.
Why is the prophets are commanded to give this choice to them?
There's a reason behind the revelation of these if
we see that the financial position of the Muslims in Medina, was it strong? It wasn't strong, especially in the early stages. I'd mentioned to you earlier that for many, many years, not even a single lamp was lit in the masjid. Why? Because the Muslims do not have enough oil. If they had it. They would drink it they would eat it and they wouldn't light a lamp with
So the financial position of Muslims was extremely weak. It was not strong at all in Medina. And the reason behind that was because much of the population of Medina was a foreigner.
Mahajan. A lot of the people were immigrants, and those who had immigrated to Medina with limited wealth with limited resources. And otherwise as well the Muslims had to fight one battle after another.
The Muslims came from Mecca to Medina empty handed many of them with limited wealth. And upon coming to Medina, soon they had to fight the battle of buddy. And very soon after that they had to fight the battle of or hurt.
At battle, yes, they obtained spoils of war. But what happened, they suffered a great loss. They suffered material loss, financial loss, they suffered loss of lives as well. And we see that after what happened, the Battle of conduct, which we have read in the previous ayah. And the Battle of conduct was not easy at all, because the entire city was besieged, and the people were hungry, there was not enough food. There was not enough food. Now imagine if you don't have food, can you go shopping for clothes? would you know? So at the Battle of Honda, whatever the Muslims had was also exhausted.
But after the Battle of Honda, what happened? The Muslims had to deal with the new code.
And when they dealt with the new code, so what happened,
all of their wealth and possessions, they were distributed amongst the Muslims.
Now, up until now, the Muslims have been suffering from poverty, from limited resources.
But now after the battle with blue Khorasan, what happened? There was so much wealth, and the financial position of the common Muslims, it improved. The Muslims in general, it improved a lot.
Because they were given many servants. At the same time, they were given a lot of wealth, a lot of arms, a lot of animals land, so on and so forth.
So financial improvement, it was very evident. You can imagine if a person has more money coming in, has a better job, what do you see?
You can see it on his clothes, isn't it, you can see it in his phone, you can see it in the car that he drives the places that he goes to, it's quite obvious. And on the other hand, a person who does not have much financial freedom, you can see it on him as well. So we see that, because of this financial improvement of the Muslims in general, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also wished that their financial position should also be improved.
That they should also be given some worldly convenience and ease. They wanted some comforts as well. Because more than anyone, they were the ones who were sacrificing, isn't it?
They were the ones who were sacrificing more than any other people of Medina.
And so they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that they should be given something they should be given some worldly is comfort, luxury.
And according to some narrations, it is said that all of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam collectively, all of them, came to him. And they asked him that they too should be given what other Muslims are being given. Other Muslims are being given servants, and they're given so much wealth. So we do should be given something similar. And if not similar athletes better more, because after all, we're your wives, we have a high status in the society.
According to other nations, we learned that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they said to him that the wives of Caesar the wives of you know all these Persian and Roman kings. They were the jury is clothing and ornaments, and they enjoy many articles of luxury. So we should also be given something similar.
So they began comparing themselves with the wives of worldly kings. Is that look at them, they have so much, and we hardly have anything I should have done. What did she say that for many, many days, what would they survive on the two black things, just water and dates, that's it. They won't light the fire in their house, they wouldn't have anything to cook. So just imagine.
So they started comparing themselves to the wives of Persian and Roman kings, and they said, they have so much they're treated with so much luxury, we do should be given something similar.
Now, this demand was something that did not defeat the high and noble rank of the wives of the Prophet
For some of our listeners,
who were the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
and we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was Whetton has been a role model for the rest of the people.
How was he a role model that he received VIP treatment and he told other people, you should also get the same. You should also demand the same know? How is the profit sort of artisan or role model for other people,
that he sacrificed the way they sacrificed. He endured hardship, the way they endured hardship.
He suffered from hunger when they suffered from hunger. So if that was his state, what was expected of his wives that they should dress up and enjoy? And go here and go there and wear new clothes every single day? Is this what was expected of them? No, they had an extremely high and noble status, a very noble position.
So this request, this demand that they made from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not affect them.
This is why we learned that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam disliked this demand. And he was upset. And as a result, he stayed in the masjid and he did not visit any of his wives for a long period of time, for several days, because he was upset with them.
Now, if you think about it, this demand apparently is very normal, is it? It does not seem like a wrong request at all. Because after all, what are they demanding?
That just as the financial situations of the rest of the Muslims as improved, it should also improve for us.
Just as they have received servants, we too should receive sermons.
Just as they have received so many new clothes and articles of convenience and luxury. We do should be given something and after all, we're the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we should be treated with some luxury we should be given something special.
And if you think about it, women typically what are they naturally inclined to? clothing, ornaments. This is a part of a woman's nature. Allah subhanaw taala himself says our main unit shall fill heylia. The one who is grown up brought up in adornments in jewelry, a little girl, she can barely sit up, but what happens her ears are already pierced. Little girls are wearing gold bangles. little babies don't even know what they're wearing, but they're wearing
I will make you in a show for the whole year. So because of this, women are naturally inclined to this.
So if the wires, the profits, or about a sudden were asking for something like this, if you think about it, it wasn't really that wrong.
It wasn't really that long. And for a woman to ask her husband, that give me money, make my life a bit easy, make my life a bit more convenient. I would like to have this I would like to have that typically, what do we think? It's the woman's right. It's her right? She should demand from her husband, she should ask her husband for this and for this and for this.
But it did not be fit the Prophet sallallahu sometimes wives,
because as I mentioned to you, he was also a husband. And his wives also had to be a suasana when jabil Dylon who called the prophets are allowed to sit and come and have that lunch. Did he like that he should be treated in a VIP way? No, he wanted that everyone else should also be benefited. He never wished to be excluded from the rest of the people when it came to worldly enjoyment when it came to worldly ease and convenience, when it came to fulfilling worldly needs, and he did not like this for his wives either.
So what happened, he became upset and therefore, to show his disapproval. He separated from his wives and stayed in the budget for an entire month. He stayed in the masjid for an entire month.
And after that period, these verses were revealed and these verses are known as the eyes of the ears, which gave a choice
and in these is the wives of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam are basically being given a choice
that if you want in control Natarajan or higher to dunya was enough to her for Thailand, or material corner surgery goodness or 100 Amina. If you want dunya then come I'll give you whatever you want. I'll give you you can have it but then you cannot stay with me.
However, if you want to stay with me, if you want the pleasure of Allah, if you are the home of the Hereafter, and the companionship of the prophets or the listener, then you have to sacrifice and what is that sacrifice
That you have to give up something. You have to give up something. And what is that that you have to give up? worldly is worldly convenience, worldly enjoyment.
We see that when these ayat were revealed, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he first visited his wife, Ayesha, not too long.
It has been reported in several books of Hadith, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he went to, I should have did on her first. And he said to her, that, I'm going to tell you about something. And you do not have to hasten to respond. You don't have to be very quick in responding to me.
Until you consult your parents. Don't be hasty. Consult your parents. Think about it. Like we say sleep on it, and then decide, make up your mind. And then tell me what you have decided.
Why did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say the story should
think about it?
She was young, she was the youngest. And typically, girls who are young, what happens? They become very emotional.
And they think, Oh, I'd rather have all of those clothes and have this person.
Right? This is what girls think sometimes I'd rather have my freedom than have to do this.
So she was young. And the Prophet said, a lot of sort of knew that her father would never ever make the wrong decision for her.
And he also loved her luck.
So he wanted that she should make the right choice for herself.
So he came to her and said this to her. And he said that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed this and he recited the ad for her. And I should have responded, if he had a step model of Allah. Concerning this, I should consult my parents. Meaning what do I need to consult my parents? When it comes to this matter? I don't need to consult them. For any UI, the law how Allah Sula, who would
because I want Allah and His messenger and the home of the hereafter?
Why do I need to consult my parents anyway? I don't need to consult them. Because this is my choice. I choose a law, His Messenger and the home of the hereafter. And it's also been narrated that I should have it on his head to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they do not let any other of your wives know that this is a choice that I made. Don't tell them what the choice that I made. Why do you think she said that she was young, a lot of them would feedings she might have.
So I should only learn how what did she choose? Allah His Messenger in the home of the Hereafter, and the prophets are the loudest and went to the rest of his wives. And all of them, made the same decision made the same choice, that they would rather stay with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam live a life of sacrifice and reap the benefits in the hereafter.
Then enjoy temporarily in this dunya and lose great reward in the hereafter.
And at this time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was married to nine women. He was married to nine women at this time five of them from pradesh Are you should only learn her have subtly learned her on Habiba soda on Salah. And he was also married to Sophia. They'll do it on her maimunah dana vintage Mahesh and Julia Vint and Harris.
So, these were the nine wives of the Prophet sallallahu. And it was at that time married.
And we see that this joy is that the wives made this was a very wise choice.
How was it a very wise choice?
Because what were they choosing? Think about it
as hero eternal, over temporary. That's what they will preferring eternal benefit over temporary benefit
eternal enjoyment over temporary enjoyment
and this choice a loss of powdercoated exam.
Because he says that if you choose a line is messenger the home of the year after the Allah has prepared for little mercenary demon Connor
mercenaries he calls him mercenary. If they choose align His Messenger
because what is are the other is that whatever is your right you get it.
It's the right of the wife that she should be kept in worldly convenience is by her husband.
That she should be provided good food, good clothing, a nice house to live in furnishings all of that by her husband. It's her right and that is our the
but we see that your son on their part was what? That they gave up part of the right. They gave up some of their rights.
Okay, if we have to stay with the profits out of all the seven This means they will be
Some days when we won't have nice warm meals to eat, but that's okay. That's okay. Why? Because we have the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu Salah, and we have the reward where in the hereafter.
So this is why the sacrifice of theirs is called as sound, a lot of parents are called to their son.
And this was a huge test for them a huge test for them because just imagine, you're being asked, What do you choose your husband, the Messenger of Allah, or the dounia.
It was a huge test. And we see that they successfully passed this test, because they had their vision set their goal set and that was success of the hereafter. And we see that because of this great choice that they made a loss of parallel data rewarded them greatly in this dunya and also you will reward them greatly in the hereafter. What was the reward that they were given in this dunya that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was prohibited from marrying any other women after these women?
You know that
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not allowed to make any other women after them. We learn in total zap i 52, the same surah that lay your head Lula can Nisa remember do that no women are lawful for you after this No. You cannot make any other woman No wonder and Tibet data be hinnom in as virgin, nor is it lawful for you to exchange them for other wives, that you divorce one of the wives that you have, and you take someone else as your wife, no, even that is not permissible for you.
So look at how Allah subhanaw taala rewarded them. And the wives of the prophets on a notice on them. What status were they given? On the hetal told many mothers of the believers
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after his life, no one was allowed to marry them either.
We learned, insulted by a 53 Why am I Canada come unto rasulillah well and tanky who as well to whom embarrass, II Aveda that it is not conceivable, it is not lawful for you believers to harm the Messenger of Allah, or to marry his wives after him ever. You're not allowed to do that.
So we see that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when they chose Allah and His Messenger, and they were willing to sacrifice what rewarded Allah give them, that they had the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for the rest of the prophets life. And they will be his wives also, in the Hereafter, and along with that, a journey of Lima, a great reward.
Now, what's the lesson in this for us?
This was for the wives of the prophets of the lotus, and what can we learn for ourselves from this? What do you think? What's coming to your mind
that if a person gives up some of their rights, that is what your son.
Now this was a special situation in which the Muslims, they had to undergo a lot of hardships. And the profits or losses that he suffered most, he was at the top of all of them.
If everybody was hungry, he was most hungry, if everyone was spending he was spending the most. So we see that his sacrifices were the greatest and because of that his wives also had to cooperate with him. This was a special situation.
Now, in another situation, it could be that between a husband and wife, it's possible that her husband is not able to fulfill every right of his wife.
So if she understands the situation, that okay, there's something that beyond my husband's ability, there's something you cannot do, technically, you should be doing, but he cannot do unfortunately, for whatever reason, whatever circumstances that were in. So if she gives up some of her rights, then that is what if sad, because many times what happens, people are not willing to give up their rights.
And for the smallest of things, even what will they do? They will begin to demand for divorce. This is what they will do.
They for instance, we have learned earlier that for a woman, what is her house when she's made the house where she and her husband lived, where she is a queen, and her husband is a boss, they run the house, they run the family. But it's possible that the husband is in a situation where he has to live with his relatives, with his family with his parents. He doesn't have a choice. And he understands the situation. He wants to provide a separate accommodation for his wife, but he's unable to. It's just not possible for him. It's not working out for him.
Now in that case, a woman said that's it. I've had enough I'm walking away from this. should she do this? No.
If she gives up her right understanding the situation accepting it and that is what
Yes on on her part. And when a person gives up something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, then Allah has prepared great reward for them.
What else do we learn
that there's a trade over here that you give up worldly benefits, in exchange for what? The reward in the hereafter. Now many times we are in a situation as well where either we have to prefer the command of Allah subhanaw taala, or some benefit of this dunya. And we face these situations many, many times. So at that time, remember, that if you give up something of this dunya and you prefer the Hereafter, you prefer Allah and His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter, that Allah will not waste your sacrifice.
Allah will not waste your effort your son. In law, now you'll do agilon myrcene, he does not waste the reward of those who do arson. He rewards them
that we shouldn't get fooled by the glitter, the glamour of this dunya because this is a fact that if a person prefers adonia, then he will suffer in his effort. And if he prefers the alpha, then he will suffer somewhat in his dunya. this dunya is attractive, it's very beautiful, it's a test. But we should never get so lost in it, that we begin to prefer it over the hereafter. Never get diluted by it never get deceived by because whatever you get up this dunya What is it? It's temporary.
that anything that we decide for ourselves anything that we choose for ourselves, it should be alpha oriented, that isn't going to benefit me in the alpha? Is it going to help me in the alpha? Or is it just going to benefit me temporarily for some time in this dunya and that's it.
So we see that the choice of the wives of the Prophet sallallaahu Sena made what was that of the Acura? They wanted benefit reward in the Acura not just limited to this dunya. Whereas they were given the choice, GM mature Kona, well, sadly, goodness, Allah and Jamila, they had the choice, but they didn't choose that. Instead, they chose the hereafter.
We see that a great status comes with great sacrifice. Many women, what do they want, I want to be married to like someone who's very learned like a chef. That's what they want someone who is very knowledgeable, someone who teaches people, someone who recites hold on very beautifully.
But remember that there's a high price for that. There's a great sacrifice for that.
Because when a person is working for the dean, then what does it mean? They don't have much time to make dounia.
If a person's goal is that they want to study the deen, they want to serve the deen then that means they're going to have to sacrifice part of their dunya most of their dunya.
And that also means that you might not get to enjoy a lot of worldly benefits.
So we see that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, whatever he did, he did with the trophy of Allah subhanaw taala. And he also did it with the cooperation of his wives. The wives have to cooperate as well, recently, there was a beautiful lecture that what kind of difficulties, the wives of the knowledgeable men they go through, they have to sacrifice so much, many times what happens, you see to you who are traveling all over the country, all over the world, teaching one place teaching another place who is cooperating with them, their wives, their families, they are cooperating.
And if they're not cooperating, would they be able to do their work? No, it would be impossible for them extremely difficult for them. So if we want the status of being the wife or the family member or the relative of someone who is working for the dean, then that means you're going to have to sacrifice a lot.
You're going to have to sacrifice your family time, you're going to have to sacrifice a lot of things. Why? Because you have a greater goal.
And this from a personal experience, many times it happens that like for instance, for many, many years, we haven't had a family reunion, just immediate family for various reasons, but one of them is that my parents are always striving for something or the other. And I remember one of my sisters who was extremely sad, and my mother said inshallah we'll be together in the I feel
that this dunya people get separated for various reasons. This is not a place to be together and enjoy and have fun. This is the place where you have to work. You have to serve the you have to sacrifice and doesn't matter we will be together inshallah in the future.
So this is what really comforts us encourages us. That doesn't
Matter, you know, the time will pass by, it will go by anyway, it doesn't matter. But what's the point, if you get to spend a lot of time with one another in this dunya, you're traveling here traveling there together as a family eating every meal together as a family. But in the end, you don't have that grid over award. It's like what you want for yourself, the goal that you've set for yourself,
we see that the wives of the prophets are a lot of them are given a choice over here, they aren't being forced to make this decision.
So no matter how much good you want for someone, no matter how much you love them, how much you want, that they should be successful in the author. You cannot force it upon them, they have to make their decision themselves.
And the thing is that when a person makes a decision himself, then he's ready to accept the challenges. If it's forced upon a person, he's not willing to accept the challenges. But if he makes that decision himself, then if he has to sacrifice in the future, difficulties come his way, then he's willing to deal with them.
This dunya is not perfect, it will never be perfect. People sacrifice so much for the sake of dunya. Why not sacrifice for the sake of Allah? Think about it all those people who attain a lot of wealth, a lot of worldly success in this dunya How do they get it? How do they get it? By having a lot of fun and enjoyment with their family members? know, people who become doctors, people who become successful businessmen. When do they get married? Very early? No, very late, when do they have children very late.
And even when they do have them who's looking after the children and any they're not able to look after their children. So, when it comes to dunia even if you want great success, then it means you have to sacrifice and who will have to sacrifice first. Your family they have to sacrifice first.
Now think about it. You want a job or Lima in the alpha if you want that. Then obviously you have to sacrifice according to it.
Okay, let's continue.
Yan is an OBE all wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
may demon Kenobi for heisha t mobile unit in whoever Have you should commit a clear immorality. If anyone among you me D. Whoever among you man over here is of shocked that if anyone among you commits be fair, he shot him albina a clear open indecency.
Sasha What is it used for? many crimes. It's used for major sin. It's used for indecent acts, and Fantasia is also used for fornication for adultery.
And be fair he shot a MOBA Hina Why is it called MOBA Hina meaning one that is evident, clear open, it's obvious that this is something fishy.
Now Fantasia, Timo vaikunta is understood in two ways over here.
First of all, it is said that it refers to Xena
and secondly, that it refers to new shoes. Do you remember the term new shoes? What is it?
being rebellious towards one spouse?
that were a wife, she has a bad attitude towards her husband. She's extremely ill mannered towards him. She is rude, disrespectful. So if anyone among you commits before Hashem albina, then what's going to happen? You blah, blah, blah, the punishment will be multiplied for her. How many times there Fany twice, two times the punishment will be given double punishment will be given to her.
Why double punishment will be given to her.
Why, compared to normal women compared to other women? Because first of all, if it's new shoes, then it would be against not an ordinary man, but against you against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
If you think about it, other believers even what were they told that you have to lower your voice before the prophets are allowed? Do not call him like you call one another. Do not address him like you address one another. And for the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Yes, he was their husband. But they had to be respectful towards him. They could not yell at him the way other women yell at their husbands because their husband was not an ordinary human being. rather he was a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and also double punishment. Why? Because of the status of these women. They weren't ordinary women.
What status did they enjoy
the status of being the wives of the Noble Messenger. Now when you have a high status, then you are expected to behave a particular way. And if you drop down from that level even slightly, that is not acceptable, it may be acceptable for others, but it's not acceptable for you.
What kind of Allah Allah here sila, and that upon Allah is very, very easy. What? Giving double punishment, it's not difficult for him at all. Now this iron does not mean that there was some kind of fear that the wives of the profit sort of artist and I would perhaps commit for Hashem obey Hina. And if we take the meaning of fashion will begin a Xena. No, this was something not acceptable. As mentioned earlier, after you've read the play, you mean look like you boom, the play, you bet. The profits on a lot of center was granted these honorable noble women, it would never be expected that they would commit such an act. But this statement is just like the statement of a loss of data to
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that led in Ashoka laietana Look, that if you were to do [???], then what would happen? your deeds would be wasted, so that the Zuma is 65. This does not imply that what is being referred to will actually happen. This does not imply that what is being referred to what has been mentioned will actually happen no, what is it this is a conditional clause, that if this happens, then this is the outcome. If you do something like this, then these are the consequences. And until a person does not do it, can he be blamed for it? No. Does it reduce his status at all? No. In fact, what does it show? It shows what a great high status they have. That if they do
anything like this, the consequences are extremely severe.
So remember that this is a conditional clause, and it does not imply that it was expected that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would do something like this. This is just like a last point it says that in Canada live Emmanuella done for a widowed RBD that oh Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that if I allow her to have a child, that I will be the first of those who worship Him? Doesn't mean that Allah has a child. does it imply that at all? No, it doesn't imply that is just saying hypothetically, if this is the case. So similarly, if you do something like this, then these are the consequences. And it's unthinkable that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would ever ever
do such a thing.
They would ever do such a thing, impossible, unthinkable.
And if we take the meaning of heisha, T Mobile Hina as new shoes, then remember that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who were they, they were a role model and example for the entire oma.
And they had to be respectful towards their husband, they had to treat him with respect, they had to obey Him, so that the rest of the women would also follow their footsteps, their example. And many of the scholars of the theater have actually preferred the second meaning of fetishism. albina, which is new shoes, not Xena, but rather it is new shoes, that if you ever commit, manifest indecency against the prophet in the way of mistreating him in the way of being Sharpton, in the way of being rude and offensive, then the consequences are severe. Because no woman should have this kind of attitude towards their husband, and especially if the husband is someone like the profits
are a lot of sort of not acceptable at all.
So what are the consequences mentioned over here that if you do something like this, and what are the consequences?
You are after that their fame, the punishment will be doubled for her double punishment will be given to her.
Now, haven't we studied that if a person does evil,
then the consequences equal to it, it will not be increased. What does that will say? You didn't say?
That the design of say here that a person does is I like it. What do we learn from the Hadees? That if a person intends to do something good, then a good deed is written? When he does it 10 times the reward. If a person intends to do something evil, no sin is written. If he does it, one thing is written. And if he doesn't do it, when good deed is written, so if a person does evil, then what is the consequence? and evil exactly like it not double, not more, not multiplied.
So why is it that for the wives of the Prophet It has been said that the punishment will be doubled,
because their rank was not like the rank of others.
There's a statement
That is said that has an apple above Seattle Mojave
that has an act the good deeds that which is considered as good for righteous people is considered as sin for who
those who are extremely close to a llama Carnaby,
what would be acceptable, what would be okay for a normal person, it would be considered wrong for a person whose status is higher, you understand? What does it mean? That the higher the status, then higher the expectations. So, similarly, their status was not the status of an ordinary women, therefore, what was expected of them was also much greater,
it was also much greater,
therefore, there have been warned and where this is the case, then the reward also will be greater. Now, think about it, that people who are of a particular status in this dunya Can they do anything? And they go anywhere? Can they dress up like ordinary people? Can they do that? No, they cannot. They live an extremely difficult life.
Every single activity of theirs is monitored. They cannot just like normal people, they have to dress up in a particular way, no matter how much they want to dress comfortably, like for example, a CEO is going to work and you just go in his jeans and a T shirt.
Even if he wants to take it easy, can you do that? No. The greater his position, the more well dressed he has to be right, and the higher the pay.
So, similarly, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the greater the status, the greater the responsibility and therefore, if they do something wrong, greater accountability, and if they do good on the other hand, the reward is also great. Which is why Allah Subhana Allah says in the next ayah that one may not mean
that whoever have you, devoutly obeys, while may Jaco, not mean Kunta whoever devoutly obeys, is devoutly obedient to, to Allah, and will sue Lee and to his messenger. Yuck not from their own letters have known that kuno What does it mean?
to be obedient, right? But does it just mean obedience? What other meaning does it include? polluting foods to be constant? So first of all, it includes the one to be constantly obedient to remain in obedience. Secondly, sure, to be obedient with humility. And thirdly, with suku with silence, what does it mean by that, but silence.
A person does not go on publicizing the deeds that he's doing.
He doesn't silently, quietly, secretly. He doesn't go advertising them. And he doesn't do them just whenever he feels like it no continuously, regularly with humility with his loss.
So whoever Have you is devoutly obediently lair he was a Sunni to Allah and His messenger.
What mozzarella Han and she does righteous deeds as well do things to newt and also Arnold solly.
Then what's the reward? No, do you have a god I have my latini we will give her her reward, twice, double reward will give her model attain as a doula model.
And this is coming in contrast to their fame in the previous ayah. What was mentioned punishment will be double over here reward will be twice two times Smith lane, twice the reward off ordinary women. Why? Because one for a better Kanoute obedience to Allah subhanaw taala following the commands of the messengers that allowed us and what is that? An act of worship? So when a person does that, what do they get reward? So one reward for that? And secondly, when they're obeying the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. They're also obeying their husband.
Correct. So there's also the reward of ITAR too, so,
just imagine, every single that why is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam practiced every instruction that they took from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and accepted and followed that was what double reward for them, one for obedience to the messenger and secondly, obedience to husband model attain twice and also twice out that Indonesia and also in Africa. What are the head is on Karima and we have prepared for her reward that is khadim that is noble. What does curry mean?
That which is noble have a very high quality, great quality. not ordinary, but special because it's from karma and karma is used for grapevines. And Kareem also gives meaning of abundance, abundant reward, great reward, most generous reward this one Karima. And where will that be in gender.
So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they're being told over here that if you're righteous, if you're obedient, then you will get double benefit as well. You will not just receive a job, but also respond Kereama an honorable reward a noble reward.
Listen to the rest of
dounia was in Atlanta.
we see that the wife has profits
because of the sacrifices they made because of the choices that they made. They are an excellent role model for the rest of the Muslim woman.
That the way they were obedient to their husband, the way they sacrificed, they gave up their right. We are also encouraged to do the same that the way they cooperated with their husband in doing good in spreading the message of Islam. Sacrificing with the sake of the deen, we are also expected to do the same.
If you think about it, women, generally they have to sacrifice. They have to sacrifice their sleep. They have to sacrifice so many things for the good of the family. They're tired, exhausted, but you still have to cook if you want your children to be healthy. If you want them to be sane and ice cream, then what do you have to do you have to get up and cook no matter how exhausted you are and feed them even if you want to sleep. So women have to sacrifice. It is something that they have to do. Men also have to but women also have to, especially in family life.
And we see that every woman has certain goals for her children. She dreams that my child will become like this, my child will become like that.
Now if we have the goal that our children should do something for the our children should serve the deen then remember that this will require a lot of sacrifice from us. If we want that our husbands should serve the They are the ones who are populating the masjid. They're the ones who are volunteering at the masjid at Islamic centers at Islamic Institute's then what does it require from us?
sacrifice, we cannot expect that when they come home. They should be washing the dishes with us and doing everything with us. And they should be taking us out and doing everything outside all the time. No, there will be days when you have to do everything yourself. Why? Because he has to go to the masjid. He has to go volunteer somewhere. And the thing is that you could say that no, it's my right. It's not fair and why is everything left on me.
But the thing is, if you want a greater reward in the era,
a high place in the Sahara, then you have to give up something now. You have to you have to cooperate and you have to do it as a family. And their word for that is seen in the dunya and it's also seen in the Lima watain. Once Indonesia once enough
they have a person
Does not sacrifice in the dunya then what happens he gets punished in the dunya even that he suffers from depression, he suffers from anger and he suffers from loneliness. And he cannot accept a situation. Because many times it happens at between a man and woman there is conflict or sometimes a husband, his work is such that he's out all the time and the woman has to take the burden of paying the bills and looking after the children and doing everything. Then many times what happens women take it so hard upon themselves, that they become depressed, or they become extremely distant from their husbands and they begin to suffer from psychological disorders and not accepting your
situation it leads to difficulty in the dunya it leads to ingratitude and perhaps greater problems in the afternoon.
So we see that a Soho hive and what is a soul exam, you give up some of your right for the greater good sacrifice. You give up something to get greater good in the
