Al-Muzzammil 1-20 Tafsir 10-13
Let him initiate on June Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim lesson number 297. So to resemble
we'll do a quick review of the ayat.
Yeah, you have a Muslim male who has been addressed. Prophet sallallahu sallam, why is he called al Muslim? Because he was covered up at that time. Why was he covered up?
Out of fear? What else?
Because he was resting. What else? He was afraid.
Because a huge responsibility had been laid on his shoulders, which was to convey to all people. So this is why you have Muslim male. It's very, what kind of address is it? It's very affectionate address. What is the command being given to him coming later in la colina? Why is it been told to stand up in prayer at night? Why isn't it sufficient to pray during the day? Already people pray five times a day, why is it necessary that a person prays at night
it strengthens you and the strength is very, very necessary for a person who is doing our for a person who is calling people to Allah. Because this work is not easy. It's not simple, you have to face many challenges. And in order to face them, you need inner strength,
because inshallah we will learn in the next order that he or you and with the third which was revealed earlier, he was afraid because of the revelation that had come to him.
And because no revelation had come for a very long time, this is why he would feel afraid is what that what's going on? Was that really revelation or what was it? inshallah we will learn about that later?
So over here, he stole coming llena de la colina, how much is it that he was to pray?
How much? Miss for who? Oh, on cosmin huka Neela? How much? Can a person reduced from a half of the night? Up to how much a third? was either la he up to two thirds? And what is it that must be done in the MLA one of Tierra? del de la? What is the what kind of recitation? Is it? summarize what I told you?
Tell me, what does it mean by reciting the Quran with the theme?
First of all, to pronounce correctly to read correctly, which means to read with giving all of the halluf there have to read with that read, secondly, to recite in a beautiful manner, which means that a person stops at the right places. And then he raises his voice at the right places, lowers his voice at the right places, to recite with understanding to recite with meaning, because the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was that as he would recite where the IRS would come, Have you no mercy, he would ask for mercy where the IRS would come up punishment, he would seek refuge against that.
So that is only possible if a person resides with understanding and meaning. Anything else included in 32, recite slowly, beautifully.
So that every word every letter is clear and distinct
with the double in the air,
and sometimes, you know, when we're reading fast than what happens or we're trying to reach the end of the ayah, or the end of the page or the end of the solid and what happens? We don't think we don't reflect we miss out on some hurdles and some rules and we don't give the heck of every letter every hurdle.
So 13 is to not worry about the end of the page, not worry about the end of this order. Take your time recite with ease, enjoy the recitation.
So what did you call the law? Now why is it that on is to be recited in pm in the night?
Why isn't it that the prophets are allowed to recite the Quran during the day?
Because of the night and there are no distractions?
And you see over here the i o which is that international at a lady here I should do what on what a coma peeler two reasons are given
that why is it that worship should be done in the hours of the night? Why is it that you should wake up in the night and then recite the Quran? Because the rising up in the night is here I should do what on what's the meaning of I shall do it on.
It's much better for much stronger, much more effective when it comes to trampling the knifes when it comes to controlling the naps.
Now think about it. When a person is getting up in the night, he has to sacrifice his sleep before he was lying down. Now he has to stand up. He was warm and cozy in bed, then he has to go and make will do isn't it
and then stand up in the night while other people are asleep.
Isn't it so?
So it's much more effective when it comes to training the knobs when it comes to controlling the knobs.
And Is that necessary for a diary? Yes, it's very
Because when it comes to the hour, first of all, what do you have to do act on what you know yourself.
And for that you have to be able to control your desires, isn't it so.
And then similarly, when a person is conveying to others, at the same time, you have to be able to control yourself how the other person is being harsh to you, you want to be harsh with them as well. But there you have to control yourself. So where do you develop the strength from to control your enough's the night prayer.
You know, for many, many things for many bad habits, people say that we cannot get rid of them. For many things, people say I'm just lazy, I can't get over my laziness is an utter similarity, there are things that you say you're going to do. And there are things that you say you're not going to do. But then what happens, you end up doing them, you end up not doing them. What's the reason, the nafs needs training, the laughs needs to be controlled.
And the best way of training the nerves, the best way of controlling them is standing up in prayer at night.
And notice how when you stand in prayer at night, you have to recite the Quran with the theme that is more of a training as well. Because you can't just read Quickly, quickly, just to get over the recitation just to get to the end of the surah. No, you have to read slowly and gradually while thinking and reflecting on the ayah.
So that's more of a training, isn't it, so you have to control your naps even more.
So in the nazjatar, laelia, a shutdown was a horrible killer.
So the night prayer is one of the best ways of reforming oneself the best way of doing your Islam.
The second meaning of a shutdown is what
it's most suitable for more thought, What is more thought in
harmony, right? When two things are in line with one another, they are together, they're in line. And the example that I gave you was in the Quran, we wouldn't be where you are gonna have a number, that at the end of the year, the machine would complete the number of four months that were sacred.
So it's when two things are in line and over here, what does it mean that I should do what on what is in line, what is in sync, what is together, the tongue, and the ear and the heart, so that when a person is reading, he's able to comprehend what a person is reciting, he's able to understand he's able to feel it, he's able to take a lesson from it, he's able to reflect on it. And this is possible only at night. What
such kind of concentration on the Quran is only possible at night.
Because at this time, you're not being distracted by other things. So here I shall do.
Now, why is this essential for a day that he should spend some time
you know, reciting the Quran in which he is able to fully comprehend and pay attention and concentrate? Why is it necessary? Because if you have not understood yourself, can you convey? No, if you have not been able to absorb something in yourself, can you pass it on to others, you cannot pass it on to others.
So the best way of taking in the Quran, the best way absorbing the Quran is how, by reciting the Quran in the night prayer.
Without it, you cannot fully comprehend, you cannot concentrate you cannot contemplate you cannot benefit.
Otherwise, what will happen is that a person will read, he will forget, you will understand temporarily and then after some time he will forget.
So, the only way of solidifying your understanding of the Quran is how by reading it with concentration
and that is only possible when in the night it's not possible during the day.
So in order to solidify your understanding your knowledge of the Quran, what is necessary that a person must recite it with concentration and that is only possible in the night.
So here I shall do what on and the second reason that is given and this is what Alcoa peeler and it is most upright in speech, meaning in delivery. And what does it mean by pain over here? Quranic recitation, first of all, so when a person recites at this time, he is able to recite it in the best possible way because he's able to hear himself and you might feel that at this time, you know, you're sleepy, you're tired, you want to sleep, but believe me, you try. At this time, you are most fresh. Give it a try. You know, many times there are women who say that because of their children, they're not able to do their lesson during the day. And when do they do it? At budget time, or
somebody was mentioned to me about this lady who
was a college and she started learning the piano, she wouldn't find any time during the day to learn how to recite. So her husband was a teacher at that time, at that time, and within a few years, Mashallah she's doing so well. So during the day, you're not as fresh, you're tired. And at that time, early morning, before morning, even last part of the night is when your senses are most fresh.
So that is a time to improve your recitation of the Quran as well.
Definitely, it's better if a person has memorized and he reads whatever he has memorized, because it's easier for you to concentrate because when you have almost half opened in front of you, then you know you're turning the pages and so on and so forth. However, that's also okay that you read from the must have intention, that's also permissible.
Can you repeat this was definitely you can, once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was reciting. And he recited the air that we will bring you as a Shahid and also, we will bring them as Shaheed meaning that the prophets or the listener will be brought as a witness on the Day of Judgment. So he kept on reciting that over and over and over again. So this is what the theme is right? That you are reading part of an IRA or an IRA, or a soda or a few is repeatedly because you are reflecting on them, you understand? So it's okay for you to repeat the sutras as well.
It's best to have a plain mishap so that you're not distracted by what's written on the site or the translation underneath one of the few notes on the site. It's best to have a plan most have
as you can see the door in the middle. And that's exactly where it's at right now that as long as it's in the Arabic language and not in English. And you know, this is just like Subhan Allah because Allah when you say Subhana Allah be an earner. This is why you're reciting with the theme so that there's a difference between what you say of your own door, and what is.
And even if you for example, you don't know how to say it in Arabic, you just say it in your heart, I mean, Allah hears your heart Even.
So echo makeda reciting the Quran in the night is most appropriate is the best way of making the recitation good, making the recitation sincere, and also a form of tailor that
with regards to the bar, it's the best way of making sure it's the best time because it will be the one that is most sincere.
Then another reason is given as to why a person should pray during the night in Narok, Athena Harris, Avraham taweelah, indeed for you by day is prolonged occupation, you have many things to do endless tasks to perform extended engagements, which never come to an end. And if you get busy in them, and think that you will adjust your concentration and your Avada, and all of that in the middle, it will be impossible. So you have to take time out from where, from your own personal time.
You see, for every person, especially women, their time is divided between time with their children time with their spouses time with their relatives time with the house. And then there's also a little bit of me time that you get.
And that is only when you're sleeping, and sometimes hardly that as well, because you know, mothers who have little children, even when they're sleeping, you know, their sleep is constantly disturbed. However, from this personal time, even the little time that you have, you can take out a little bit of time, for the sake of a loss of
a little bit of time, at least, to speak with Allah to worship Him.
Because believe me, even as a mother, you cannot remain sane and confident. And I have a high level of Eman and aku Sure, inshallah, unless and until you have a strong connection with your Lord.
Because many times it happens that mothers they get swept into family life, so much so that they forget their uscar even they forget to recite the Quran even tell me, if you think that during the day, you're going to get some time in which you're going to open up the door book. And you're going to open up the mishap and then you're going to read when will you find that time, you will never find that time. Never ever.
So you have to take time out from your personal need time, no matter how little it is. And that will give you the strength to continue.
Because if you think about it, so many mothers, what happens to them they're going to depression isn't so so many mothers, they get frustrated with their children, they get frustrated with their husbands and they complain of having low eema and weak Eman. Why is it so?
Because we are not spending time in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala
remember that our purpose of life is what? To worship Allah and if we don't fulfill that purpose, your life will be empty it will be meaningless. It will not bring you happiness.
matter how many children you have, no matter how busy you are with them, no matter how many parties you attend, it will not bring you happiness. What will bring you true satisfaction is the worship of Allah. So you have to make time for that. You have to it's a hook
that your Eman demands that yourself need to fulfill for your sake. So for your own benefit for your own sanity for your own Eman, make time for yourself.
So in Melaka, Finn nihari subhanho wa Taala, there is a lot of occupation during the day.
So you have to take time out during the night.
And it's just about making some changes in your day, in your routine. And everything falls in place very quickly. Because sometimes, you know, we think that or the children will wake up, or they have to go to school, I have to cook I have to do this. Everything can be done. Everything can be done. Think about it. You're coming here right now, isn't it, and you're coming for how long, so many hours of the day. If you can make time for this class, you can also take time out 15 minutes just before budget even start with that 15 minutes before budget, and inshallah that will put so much Baraka in your day, that will give you so much energy throughout the day.
And this isn't hamdulillah by the time fudger begins around 615, you can easily recover half an hour before, start off with Duda car, start off with for a car, whichever is possible. But make the intention. Start something
this is very true that you just have to train your body. And you will actually start waking up yourself. She's giving an example of this boy who was reflected regularly. And somebody asked him that, how do you wake up he said, well before I used to wake up with the alarm clock. But now I don't have to even do that. Because your body gets used to waking up at a time that you regularly wake up at.
And even if you don't get out of bed, you will be awake.
At nighttime when you wake up, you're all alone. So it makes you more humble. So the worship of the nighttime is not comparable with the question of the day.
And it's about making up your mind that I have to do this. It's about making up your mind. And when you make up your mind, you make a firm intention alive and gives you the trophy.
My mother, she's deaf, and it's been many, many years before even her marriage. But I have never seen her skipping the hijab, like ever. And she is the first one to get up. And she's the one who wakes us up. And the time she tells us that today someone has walked me out. I mean, I can feel that someone has moved. So yes, that you know, we think we're so busy. We have to go to school, we have to go to work that we have to do this and that. This is why you know for us, it's not necessary. Allah knows what situation you're in. But if you think about it to people, just a previous generation, even they lived extremely busy lives.
Like the stories that my grandmother tells me, the amount of children she's raised, not just her children, but the rest of family members as well looking after them, cooking for them, cleaning for them, doing their laundry everything by hand. And still they're getting up for fudger they're getting up for the hygiene. No excuses. It's about making up your mind.
This is the quality time that you spend with your Lord and it doesn't have to be hours and hours. I mean it's best if it is. However, if you start off with even 15 minutes if you start off with half an hour even that is also good. We learn from a Hadith, which is reported in Eman Cosima that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said la cumbre tm and Lady rla can be pm and layli meaning make sure you pray fiama laid for inner houda vasarely hanaa Kabbalah calm because it was the habit of the righteous people before you. This has always been the habit of the righteous people before you download an insolent used to pray and relate as well.
Well, hello COVID telecom AOL have become and it is a means of drawing closer to do your Lord. This is how you get closer to your Lord. Because this is when you recite his words. And this is when you make the art to him. Will McFarlane to listen.
And this is a means of expiation of sins as well. forgiveness of sins, woman hair to an annual isn't. And this is a means of stopping you from committing sin as well.
There are many many habits that we want to get rid of things that we want to stop good things we want to start, but we're not able to. We don't find the strength we fall weak. We forget again and again. So where do you get that strength from? The young lady woman had an aneurysm it will prevent you from committing sin.
So over here, we learned in the nazjatar lady here a shadow on a como killer.
In nella cofina Harris, Avraham felida, what good is smaller, bigger waterbottle la de la and remember
The Name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with complete devotion.
What does it mean by this? Dr. La hytera Tila? What does this mean?
Yes, that the time that you have taken out to worship Allah subhanaw taala, then cut yourself off from the rest of the world. At that time we fully devoted, we fully devoted, don't think about other things. Don't be worried and concerned about others. And this is only possible when in the nighttime,
because during the day, there are too many distractions, too many things to do.
So the battle illative Tila can only be done while in the night
and avert any negativity. This is also in general terms, that a person must take out time to devote himself completely to his word, there must be some moments of the day, some hours of the day when a person is devoted to his Lord only and is not concerned about other things.
You know, think about it, any work that you do, if you want to do it properly, then what do you have to do? You have to give it full concentration, full concentration. If you're trying to multitask if you're trying to do multiple things at a time, then what will happen you will get nothing done at the end or you will get many things done at the end but no quality in any
So, there must be some time in which a person is exclusively worshipping Allah doing nothing else but that
because many times what happens we are doing the cut and we are washing dishes. We are reading our car and we are cleaning at the same time. Yes, that's very good. Your tank should always be busy in the liquid of Allah. However, can you concentrate as much on the liquid? Can you know you can't. So there has to be some time in which a person is fully devoted to a loss of
whatever Li e wt law
and this also means that when you have completed your tasks, When you've completed your work, then busy yourself and his obedience and his worship is just as we learned for either for after from so that when you have become free from your work and funds other than stand up and be fixed for the worship of Allah Don't think about other things.
Who is your Lord Rob bull Musha Keven Mojave La Ilaha Illa Who? Fatah who Akilah. He is the Lord of the east and the west, there is no deity except Him. So take him as your workI take him as your Disposer of affairs and over your problems to him.
Seek his help. Connect with him, ask him for his help. And when will that be through the prayer?
recitation of these
what's better annamma yaku and be patient over what they say? Was the patient or profits on aloneness alone Be patient over what? Maya Kowloon what they say?
What is it the machine of Makkah would say to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what kind of words words of duck leap of denial, words of other such words that would hurt him.
So be patient over what they say? What your home and avoid them hedger on jameelah with gracious avoidance.
This is one of the earliest teachings that were given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because remember the suta was revealed at a very early period.
And what is it that he's being told to do have some Be patient over what they say? And leave them avoid them with gracious avoidance over your woman's from the room fetters hajima he drives from the same route as well. What does it mean
to leave something to go away from there to abandon something module What is my view that which has been left that which has been abandoned?
So what June home avoid them part with them how hadron jameelah integrations manner in Abuja.
manner How does a person leave the other in a beautiful manner
without making them realize how else
okay leaving in good terms but if they are angry at you then
without responding in a negative way
so for example if they're arguing with you without arguing
if they are saying foul words to you without saying anything harsh to them just ignore what your home hydron Jumeirah just leave in a beautiful manner This is just like we have learned at the heart of uncle J. Luna Carlo Santa without saying any offensive words with Joel Madeline jameelah
whether me and leave me one mocha dB, and those who deny it doesn't mean leave me for what it means is leave me to deal with.
Leave me to deal with who and mocha DB that denies. Meaning leave this matter to me. You don't worry about it. I will deal with who? I look at the bean, those who deny you and who are these people who deny you only narrow muddy those of ease in life possessors of nama What does normal mean? comfort blessing is in particular life of ease and life of ease? How is it possible with affluence with wealth, with enjoyment with comfort.
So these merkezi been, who are living a life of ease, you leave me to deal with them. You part with them. Don't bother with them, don't fight with them, don't argue with them.
And you leave their matter to me, I will deal with them.
On my Hill whom kalila and allow them rest bite a little my Hill, my Hill, from Tom Hill, meme her lamb.
And Tom Hill is to give mohalla and what is Mohammed? Rest bite.
So give us by delay for how long? Alina for a little time,
meaning give them some time. Don't become aggressive, don't become angry, don't become vengeful, immediately, but rather give some time.
So those people who are denying you, if they deny you don't start praying against them immediately. Don't start becoming angry with them immediately. But rather give them some time. Why give them some time so that they can realize so that they can see the truth. And they can eventually believe. And if you think about it, was this the meal necessary? Yes. Because there were so many people who did not embrace Islam immediately. They embrace Islam much later. And if this model was not given, then what would happen they would not embrace Islam. Like for example, a model did on my Hill home kanila. That is how he was able to embrace Islam. Similarly, Khalid even worried. Similarly, I'm
originally asked so many companions, who were great opponents of Islam initially at the beginning, Allah Subhana Allah says concerning them by hailong kalila give them some time, very soon, they will realize very soon, they will accept.
So what does it show that Adare must have sub sub in listening to what the people say to him, sub in dealing with the enmity of others as well.
That no matter how great their enmity is, you must give them some space, you must give them some time, some time to think some time to realize, because this is the work of a last panel, Tyler, this is the Dean of a loss of primal data.
When a person is calling others to Allah, he is working for hoosick a loss of primal data. And in whose hands is guidance as well, Allah, and Allah knows when to give guidance to who. So it's quite possible these people don't believe now. But tomorrow they will. So no matter how great their enmity is, don't become vengeful against them. Don't start praying against them. Just wait a little bit Mahal home karela.
Because think about it, you talk to someone, they respond very harshly you get hurt, isn't it? And when you see that they're not changing, they're not listening. What do you think that's it, they're never going to change. Don't think like this luck and change their heart any moment. be hopeful, keep praying for them, my Hill home kalila.
And secondly, my Hill home kalila is also understood as ignore them for some time, give them rest by and very soon, Allah will punish them. And this happened that there weren't people who did not have benefit of the time they were given and eventually the punishment of a lot descended on them.
in Medina, indeed
With us our uncommon shackles was your hammer and a burning fire.
Meaning we have for such deniers in the hereafter and Cal and jehane and Kyle is a plural of nickel. And nickel is used for fetters, shackles chains, in particular those that are used to bind animals.
So for example, you may have seen a cow whose foot is shackled.
Or, for example, a donkey whose neck is shackled. So the fetters the shackles are used to bind animals they are known as and curl.
And they're much more stronger, much more rough compared to the shackles that are used for prisoners, isn't it? They're much more stronger and much more rough and crude.
So in nella Dana and cannon heavy shackles which are Hema, a scorching fire, a raging hellfire.
Moreover, water almanza was sweating, and food that jokes were either Urban ilima and a painful punishment.
We have such food for them that is, that was sweating. What does it mean by the way,
this is from the roof letters, whine squad squad. And obviously also is that which jokes that which get stuck, which gets congested in the throat. It's also used for a lump in the throat, that which gets stuck in the throat. So there are certain it is such food, whose characteristic is that it gets stuck in the throat and it's not easily swallowable the characteristic of the food of Hellfire is one that it gets stuck in the throat. It's not easy to swallow it. You know, sometimes you're having something extremely dry, and what happens? It gets stuck in the throat for example, it's very flaky, or dry. Or for example, it's a piece of a bone gets stuck in your throat. So what are almanza who's
sitting? This is the food of Hellfire that is prepared for them. Which food is this? We have learned about it in the Quran. Zaku it was lean thorens laser hometown 11 bloodier. So turanza was sweating. What are the 11 and EMA and the painful punishment into it Look man, I have 24 last panel data says new material honkanen so manotaur room in urban valleys, we grant them enjoyment for a little and then we will force them to a massive punishment.
So right now, let them be there opposing you. Let them be it's okay give them time. You Be patient. You keep doing your work. You keep building your strength, and Allah will deal with these people
will listen to the recitation.
