I was a bit lame and a shaytani R rajim Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim.

00:00:06 --> 00:00:58

Sonali ficolo ballerina Kapha roba Bhima Ashleigh Kobe lair. Mariela Muna Zerby Suparna. Walmart well who will now wabbit Somersworth volley mean? We will cast her into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which he had not sent down any authority and the refuge will be the fire and wretched is a residence of the wrongdoers. We learned that Allah subhanaw taala is the helper of who of those who believe believe Allah Who Mola Allah is your Mola, he is your friend, he is your protector and he is the best of helpers. And those who ask Allah for his help those who prove themselves deserving of his help, then does Allah abandon them? Not at all.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:47

Allah helps them. Allah helps them through ways that they cannot even imagine. One of the ways through which Allah helps such people, is how that he puts fear into the hearts of who their enemies. If the enemy is afraid, will he be able to attack? No, if someone is afraid of you? Can they say anything to you at your face? Not at all. Can they do anything to hurt you? No, they cannot. When a person is afraid, then they are you can say paralyzed. Their fear stops them from taking any action. So one of the ways through which Allah protected his messenger, through which Allah protected the believers on the day of or health was how that he cast fear into the heart of

00:01:47 --> 00:02:00

the wished he came. But you might say that No, I mean, the wished again were coming and attacking the Muslims, one after the other, they killed so many they even tried to kill the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one after the other were coming to assassinate him. So where was the fear?

00:02:01 --> 00:02:09

You know that at the beginning, the Muslims were victorious and inshallah we will learn about that how the victory turned into defeat.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:51

And when the machete can attack the Muslims again. Yes, they came to kill the Prophet sallallahu Sallam many times. But when it was rumored that he had been killed, what happened? They stopped fighting, they started packing up, they started to leave. And the Prophet salallahu Salam at that time, what did he do? He ascended the mountain of or health in order to take protection over there. And this was something that was not known to the wish Dickens the prophets of Allah Edison was still alive, but they heard the cries of happiness and joy that the Sahaba made when they saw the prophets of Allah selama life. So the machine they thought that he was alive, but they wanted to make sure

00:02:52 --> 00:03:35

and even is how historian he related that when the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam was going up the HELOC He was followed by obey Ben Honnef. When the Prophet saw a lot of sun was going up, the hillock obey even call of one of the machine he was following. Now imagine a small group of Muslims is climbing up the mountains, and one of them Michigan is following them. And he was saying, Where is Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, either I kill him or I will be killed. The Companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, O Messenger of Allah, do you mind if one of us combats with him? Do you mind if one of us goes and deals with him? But the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Leave him, let me deal

00:03:35 --> 00:04:20

with him. And when the man when obey Ben Hollub drew near the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam took a spear from one of the companions and he threw it towards obey even Honnef OBEY Him and kind of barely got hit by it. The spear did not really kill him at that moment, it just hit him, just kind of knocked at him. But because of that blow, he got so frightened. He actually fell and he rolled over several times and he thought he had died. He actually got up and he said Mohammed has killed me. Mohammed has killed me SallAllahu wasallam and he ran towards his people, but when they checked him, there was only a scratch on his neck, only a scratch. But he was so determined he was

00:04:20 --> 00:04:59

so frightened. He said he has killed me because he said that he was going to kill me so he has killed me I'm done. I'm gone. He was terrified. And because of that incident, the rest of them wish to keynote so they got afraid. He this man who even kind of actually saw the profits out of all the sudden the rest of the people could have said Okay, let's go and deal with him. You stay here let's go and deal with him. But when they saw obey, even call of petrified when they saw him freaking out, nobody dared to go. They were overcome with fear. They will overcome with fear. Another incident is how another group of Mushrikeen from the other side. They went up the mountain because it wasn't

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

like

00:05:00 --> 00:05:35

Like the whole army of the wish Deacon was in one place, they were scattered all over the area. Because, you know, when people would go even for wars, they would go in their own groups, like, for example, their own tribes or their own divisions. So another group came when they saw the Prophet salallahu Salam, and they went up the mountain. So the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said to sorrow, drive them off. He said, How can I drive them off by myself? Meaning how can I do it alone? There's a group of them and here I am, alone, one individual, how am I supposed to do that? But the Messenger of Allah Allah said and repeated the phrase three times he said, No, drive them off. So

00:05:35 --> 00:05:50

sorry, the Lido and who took an arrow out of his quiver and shot it at one of them and killed it. He took another arrow and shot it and killed another man. He took another arrow shot and killed another man. When the people saw that this one man is killing one after the other of us, they ran away.

00:05:52 --> 00:06:29

They were dealing with who one Muslim man. There was a whole group of them. But what happened? They got afraid, and they ran away. The Prophet salallahu Salam then ascended the mountain, and the rest of the Muslims also joined him over there. And then the Prophet sallallahu sallam was hobbled, they all prayed. They tended to their wounds, and they also took a short nap. And then they checked on the wishek army, that were they heading towards Medina or towards Mecca. When they thought they were heading towards Mecca, they were not riding their horses, but riding their camels. Then the Prophet saw a lot of sentiment that companions descended from the mountain and dealt with the martyrs in the

00:06:29 --> 00:07:17

battlefield. But basically, we see that the wish the king, they could have easily killed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam over there, there was only a handful of Muslims left. But what happened, they were overcome by fear. And they left this fear who put it into their hearts, Allah Subhana Allah put that fear into their hearts. So this is a reality. When a person relies upon Allah asks him for help than Allah helps him in ways he cannot even imagine. Remember that famous incident where the prophet saw a lot of sun was once taking rest under a tree, and his sword was hanging, and a man came, grabbed his sword, and said, Who can save you from me? And Mohamed Salah who can save you from me? He had

00:07:17 --> 00:07:30

the sword in his and helmets on a lot of them was sleeping, he had just woken up because of the man's cry. And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam rose, what did he say? Allah? Well, the man got so frightened that for swords slipped down in his hands.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:41

So normally, this doesn't happen, that a person is told Allah will save me and he got so afraid that the sword falls from isn't it doesn't happen normally.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:52

But why did this happen? Because Allah put the fear into the heart of that man. Why? Because Allah was helping his messenger.

00:07:53 --> 00:08:14

Sometimes we are overcome with fear. When we are overcome with fear, then writing the simplest exam also becomes very difficult. Correct. Fear causes defeat and failure, because then you are not confident you cannot trust yourself. You almost believe that you will fail.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:31

So that leads you to your failure. When you believe that you're going to fail, you are going to fail. Right? So when Allah gives confidence to the believer and puts fear into the heart of his enemy, then this is help from him.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:45

That Allah says one of the Sonoko Kamala, who are the who, and Allah had certainly fulfilled his promise to you. When the Muslims returned to Medina, the obvious question was, what happened?

00:08:47 --> 00:08:57

Wasn't Allah supposed to help you? What happened? And you may have felt as well that if you failed at something, then you wonder why didn't Allah help me?

00:08:58 --> 00:09:47

How can Allah didn't help me? How come this was so difficult for me? How can this experience was so long and exhausting for me? Why what went wrong? Allah tells the believers, Allah fulfilled his promise, notice the word sadhaka. What does this mean from sin, truthfulness, that Allah proved his promise true, he said he was going to help you and he helped you. He said he was going to grant you victory. And he did. In fact, when is the Sunnah whom be isn't he? V when you were killing the enemy by his permission, meaning at the beginning, what happened? You were victorious. The word that has sunnah is from the root letters has seen seen from the word his and his means sense. Like the sense

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

of touch, the sense of smell, the sense of hearing, the sense of seeing, this is what his and has said, has said, is to kill someone by striking

00:10:00 --> 00:10:51

In their senses, so basically, for example, a person's eyes if they're wounded really badly than the person cannot survive. Likewise, the ears you know, if a person is is struck on them, then a really violent blow then he cannot survive. So the husana You were killing them, you were rendering their senses incapable you were killing them in that manner, the her sooner home, be in a hurry. But all of this was happening how? By His permission, because he allowed it, he was helping you. So in other words, Allah who was giving victory to you, but then what happened? You did something wrong, and you change that victory into defeat Hatter, II, their official term, what an Azhar tomb, Phil Emery was

00:10:51 --> 00:11:15

a tomb member, demon or commander hipbone until when you became weak when you lost heart to yourself, and you disputed amongst yourself, and you disobeyed after seeing what you love. So Allah was giving victory to you, but you change that victory yourself. So don't blame Allah for your defeat, who should you blame for yourself?

00:11:16 --> 00:12:01

Because think about it. If there is an exam, for example, that you have to take, Allah helps us how that Allah provides us the means gives us the time gives us the mind the intellect to understand he has given us everything that we need in order to pass that exam. But if we don't study ourselves, then whose fault is it? We say, Oh, I prayed tundra God knuffel Begging Allah for help. But I still failed. Why? Because you never opened a book. You never studied, you never did your part. So how can you blame Allah for your defeat, it is your fault. But we think that the help of Allah means you do nothing and miracles are going to happen. No, Allah helps us how by providing us the means giving us

00:12:01 --> 00:12:44

the ability, which means that we have to do something ourselves, and Allah will create ease. This is just like, if there's a book that you have to read, until you open it until you study it, I'm sorry, you're not going to understand it. But once you start studying it, and once you start reading it, then what will happen, you will begin to understand it will gradually become easier for you. I remember in high school, I struggled with math so much that I really thought I was going to fail. I took my old levels and I thought I'm not going to get a good grade at all. But I made up my mind that no I have to understand, I have to understand and I gave it my maximum capacity that I had. I

00:12:44 --> 00:13:13

used in order to understand all those concepts and I practice like crazy. Literally, there were books and books and books that I filled up with practice. And Alhamdulillah I scored an A I scored 90% But still today, I know that it was because yes, I asked Allah I begged him for help but I also made use of the time and the ability the resources that he had provided. And if I had not made use of that, I would not have succeeded not at all.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:22

So this is something that is true for worldly success. Okay, as well as for the success of the

00:13:24 --> 00:13:42

when it comes to math and science and geography we understand that if we don't study we're not going to pass. Likewise when it comes to Deen, when it comes to you know problems in life, the same principle has to be applied. You use the resources Allah has provided, and then Allah Who grants you victory.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:59

So if you fail, don't blame Allah blame yourself Welaka de Sadako Kamala who are the WHO IS THE her sunnah whom be with me? Now at the beginning, how are the Muslims gaining victory? I remember when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam left Medina with the Army

00:14:00 --> 00:14:43

way the huddled them in Alec, they camped between Medina and Ohio and spent the night over there and the next morning, the Muslims proceeded to go ahead. But remember the machine had already arrived. And they were camped between Medina and are heard as well. So the Prophet said a lot of them took the army from the other side, you know, from sideways, and they went on to the foot of the mount or hurt so that the Mount Hood was behind the Muslim army. The Mushrikeen were in front of them, and behind them which Duquesne was the city of Medina. All right, so the Michigan were basically between the Muslims and Medina. And where was the mountain of or behind the Muslim army? Why did the Prophet

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

salallahu Salam do that? Why did the Muslim army can't there? Because with the mountain on their back automatically, they were defended. They were secure from the back there were few in numbers of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had to be very strategic. All right, then likewise, the hills of Mount are they're not just

00:15:00 --> 00:15:15

One big mountain but they're actually hills. Have you ever seen? Have you ever seen anyone? Have you been to Medina? How is it? It's like a mountain range almost. It's long, right? And have you ever actually gone closer to the mountain, so it's like small hills that are scattered in a way.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:28

So the prophets of Allah Islam camped in a way that the Muslim army was protected from two sides, not just the bad but also one side. Now they had to guard just one side and fight the enemy from the front.

00:15:30 --> 00:16:13

So the one side where there were unprotected the Prophet salallahu Salam appointed the archers, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam divided the rest of the Muslim army into two roles. So they were basically standing all across, all right, and the Prophet sallallahu himself with some companions stood at the base of Mount or her, guiding and instructing the Muslim army as to what to do. And he also told them that do not start the battle until I allow until I command you. The Muslims were few, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave very clear instructions, for example, those archers, the 50 men, he instructed them that if you see a snatched into pieces by birds, do not leave this position of

00:16:13 --> 00:16:37

yours, meaning if you see that we have been killed, and birds are coming and eating our corpses, still you are not going to move until I sent for you. And if you see that we have defeated the enemy and trodden on them. Do not desert your position until I ascend for you. So whether we lose or we win, you're not moving from here. That's the clear instruction, the prophets all sudden gave to them.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:43

Those in the front, he told them no fighting until I allow until I commend you.

00:16:44 --> 00:17:24

And the prophets on a lot of them didn't just give rules and instructions, but he also encouraged the Muslims in Allah Hicklin Mattoon, are you familiar with the book, the CEO of nectar, the seed of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in that it is mentioned that the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam forbade the Muslims to start the fight without having an order from him. He then wore to armors you have to do your part, he wore two armors, a front armor and a back one. So he was protected from the front as well as the back and he urged his companions to fight and spurred them to show stamina and steadfastness at fight. He took a sharp sword, the profits of a lot of them, took a sharp sword,

00:17:24 --> 00:18:11

held it in his hand and called out and his companions and said, who is ready to take the sword and give it its proper do? Who's going to take the sword and give it its proper do? Many men set out to take it? Some of them were early, there'll be lower and who Zubayr has been our one, or might have been called Bob, but it was granted to none. Then a Buddha Jana, he inquired, or messenger of Allah, what is its price? The Prophet sallallahu sallam said it is to strike the enemy's faces with it until it was bent, meaning use the sword so much that it is bent. So a Buddha Janna said O Messenger of Allah, I will take it for that price and he was given the sword and a Buddha Jana, he was a man

00:18:11 --> 00:18:15

of courage. Who used to swagger at war. What does that mean?

00:18:16 --> 00:18:53

That's the word that's used in the book I'm not making it up. So what does this sentence mean? That when he would go to war he you know, deal with me I'll chop your head off like used to like, you know, walk like a gangster you can say like that wrestler walk. Okay, you know, like that wrestler walk. You know how people walk? You know what I'm talking about, right? When people think that they're cool basketball player, and they come to the court, you know, bouncing their ball and giving those smirks so this is how a Buddha Janna used to walk were in the battle. And this is like what inviting the enemy that come fight with me.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:06

So I will the Jana he was a man of guard. And he had a red band, which he used to wear around his head and a red band draws a lot of attention.

00:19:08 --> 00:19:36

And whenever he was head banded, everybody knew that he was determined to fight to death. Therefore, as soon as I put the agenda took the profits soared. He banded his head and started strutting amongst the fighters. He started walking with like pride and arrogance that come fight with me you know, I'll deal with you. Watching him doing that the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said this is a sort of walking that Allah hates, except in such a situation.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

So when you wearing those cool jeans,

00:19:41 --> 00:19:56

okay, and those sunglasses, and if you walk like that, Allah hates that kind of a walk. It was only referring to who abou the Jana when he was in the battle, inviting the enemy that come come to me and I'll deal with you.

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

As the bourbon Irwin he

00:20:00 --> 00:20:24

said I felt angry and discouraged when the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam refused to give me the sword, but gave it to Apple to Jana. He said I felt very angry. I said to myself, I am his paternal uncle, the cousin of his aunt Sophia, or Qureshi, meaning I'm related to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Besides, I was the first who demanded it, and yet he favored him to me, he gave him the sword and not me.

00:20:25 --> 00:21:08

As well said, By Allah, I will watch how he will use it. So he said, I followed a Buddha journal. I followed him around during the battle to see what he will do. And I saw him take out his red band and wear it around his head, seeing him like that the helper set up with a Jana had worn the band of death. And then he sat out saying loudly, I am the one who might inmate friend made covenant with that when we were under the palm trees on the mountainside. The covenant that we made was that I should not fight at the rare but fight at the front heroically with the sword of Allah and His messenger. So with agenda was not just walking in a particular way. He was also saying things which

00:21:08 --> 00:21:16

would invite the enemy that really bugged the enemy really irritate the enemy, so that the enemy one after the other, they will actually come to a good agenda.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:34

As well as that no one stood the way of a good agenda, but was killed because he was a very strong, courageous, powerful man. So he kept saying such statements, he kept walking in that manner with his red band, everybody started coming towards him, and anybody who came, he killed him.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:56

There was a man among the idolaters, whose only target was to finish off the wounded Muslims, any Muslim who was wounded and wish this man was going around, you know, killing any wounded Muslim, during the fight of with agenda drew near that men. So I implored Allah that they might engage in combat. They in fact, did an exchange to sorts strikes, and with a Jana killed him.

00:21:57 --> 00:22:31

Then we also learned that Zubaydah said that into the thick of the battle, he rushed to kill a person who was inciting the enemy to fight the Muslims, because the machine again, they weren't just fighting, but there were people amongst them were saying verses of poetry in citing their people against the Muslims. So there was a person who was, you know, saying verses of poetry and inciting the people against the Muslims of the genocide. You know what, I'm going to finish you first. So he went to him upon this, and when he got to him, he raised his sword in order to finish that man, but the person shrieked, and it was a woman.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:36

It was a woman who was that woman does anyone know? Hynde,

00:22:37 --> 00:22:56

the woman who eventually embraced Islam, but she had Hamza little do to learn who killed by washing, right? So anyway, with agenda when he saw was a woman, he spared her saying that I respect the Prophet sword too much to use it on a woman.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:11

This is the prophet sword. As much as I want to get rid of this woman, I'm not going to use a prophet sword against her. Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has forbidden us from killing women and children and the old and the monks right in battle.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:17

Even if that woman is inciting them, we're sticking against the Muslim still, he spared her.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:27

And a very strong woman imagined she was standing in the thick of the battle in the middle. So strong and courageous she was. So this was a Buddha Journal story.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:29

Then,

00:23:30 --> 00:24:05

there were many other companions who were fighting bravely. If I go into the details, we won't be able to complete a surah earlier Milan at all. So I leave that to you to read through Syrah books, so that you can find out the details. But on the other hand, the 50 Archers of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had appointed, what were they doing? Were they just standing there doing nothing? No. We learned that the makan horseman commanded by Khalid bin Walid, supported by a warm little fuzzy head for three times attacked the left wing of the Muslim army with the aim of crushing it and then infiltrating into the rear to create a sort of confusion and disorder into the ranks of the

00:24:05 --> 00:24:32

Muslims and subsequently inflict heavy defeat on them. But thanks to the dexterity and great efforts of the archers, the three assaults were thwarted. So the machine actually tried to come through the way of the archers how many times three times but every time they came the archers they propelled them, they shot arrows at them, which forced them wished you can do withdrawal and come find the Muslims from the front.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:59

So the Muslims, if the persona won't be in the heat, they were really inflicting heavy slaughter on the machine again, despite their few numbers of beloved Ozzy it is mentioned and so he bukata He said that when we fought them, they fled. When we fought them, the Mushrikeen began to flee, and their women could be seen fleeing in the mountains. The women were also trying to run away those women who had come

00:25:00 --> 00:25:08

inciting them were sticking against the Muslims. They were seeing fleeing in the mountains with their anklets and legs revealed they were desperate to get away.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:42

The Muslims pursued the enemies, putting them to sort and collecting the spoils. So basically, they did put them to flight. And when they put them to flight, what happened? The Muslims, they thought that we are victorious. It was too early, it was too early. This is just like, you think that the food is ready, and you take it out of the oven and you put it on the table. But then you see that the meat is still slightly raw, or the food is still gooey, the sauces not fully done.

00:25:43 --> 00:26:08

Why do we take the food out too quickly? Because we don't have the patience. Right? We don't have the patience, we lose our courage and confidence to be patient, we just give up. We can't wait any more. Likewise, the Muslims that were so happy that they couldn't wait, and Why could they not wait? Because they saw something they wanted? And what was that? The war booty?

00:26:10 --> 00:26:17

The Muslims, you might say, that's very greedy. I mean, why would they want war booty? Because

00:26:18 --> 00:26:51

remember that many of them were who immigrants from Makkah, who whose properties had been taken away by the machete key. They were driven out of their homes out of their properties out of their city, just because of their Islam. And you know, the kind of difficult lives they were living in Medina. And besides, they were human beings as well. They were human beings. If you think about it, if you go to the mall, and there's like some crazy sale, how are people going through the stuff?

00:26:53 --> 00:27:10

You know, sometimes I'm just shocked, like, you go to a store and you see the lineup and you just want to walk out. Or you see how the clothes you know, they're all over the floor. They're all mixed up, because of the way people have taken the stuff out. As if you can't find the clothes anywhere, as if you have no clothes on your body, which is why you're desperate to get them.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:54

You go to the mall on Boxing Day or something like that. What's the state of the people, they're going crazy. They're shopping bags, they cannot carry them in the stores. It's as if they've lost her sanity. Literally, if you go to a store where you get things on a cheaper price, like winners or Marshalls or something, I mean, you see items that are abused because of the way people have opened them or used them. Nothing is worth buying, because of the way that people have gone through the stuff, isn't it? So. And these are people whose houses are full, who have so much that they cannot even manage their stuff isn't a tool, but yet, how do they go through the duniya?

00:27:55 --> 00:28:37

As if they're desperate for it. So why is it that when we hear that the Muslims, they ran to good war booty we think oh, that was so bad. They were human beings as well. They were people as well. So it's understandable. It is normal. Don't think that the Sahaba were not righteous people just because they went for war booty. They were human beings. And they thought that the war was over that they were victorious, which is why they went but when they went it was a mistake. We don't say that it was something wrong. It was wrong. But don't think of the Sahaba as sinful people as evil people as greedy people because they went for war booty No, don't think like that. They were after all

00:28:37 --> 00:28:40

human beings and human beings make mistakes.

00:28:41 --> 00:29:01

So is the persona won't be in the hat. The all of this changed either for Shilton when you lost heart for Shelton from fashion and fashion to lose heart to be cowardly to fail to become weak hearted. They became weak hearted when, when they saw the dunya

00:29:02 --> 00:29:47

they were fighting so fiercely defending so fiercely standing on their positions guarding the Muslims with so much strength and determination. But all of that changed all that was lost when they saw something they wanted. And not just for Shelton, but what an Azhar Tom fell on Thursday, from noon ze rain, NASA is to fight at the nazzer is to fight with one another to dispute with one another. So you disputed with one another film concerning the matter which matter the matter of victory because the archers they wanted to go and collect the booty. But Abdullah bin Jubair, who was appointed as the leader, he reminded them that look we're not allowed to go until the Prophet

00:29:47 --> 00:29:49

saw a lot of some sense for us.

00:29:50 --> 00:29:59

So there was a thin Azur there was a dispute amongst the archers. They said to their leader that no we're not meant to stand here forever. You look at the wishes.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:18

between women they're running away from we're sticking horsemen. They're gone. I mean, we are definitely winners. The Muslims are collecting the booty. Why should we be standing here? Let's go. But our beloved Jabez said that no, but the archers did not listen to him, and 40 of them, they went then as

00:30:19 --> 00:31:03

well only 10 of them were left standing in their positions, then Hazara can fill up while SITUM and you disobeyed mimbar, the Moroccan Matthew hipbone, after that Allah showed you or alchemy showed you meaning Allah showed you matter hipbone that which you love. You disobeyed who, first of all, your leader or the loving Jabez. He told you do not move do not go away, but you did not listen to him. Why did the prophets of Allah listen appoint a leader above you so that you listen to him? You DO what He tells you to do? But you disobeyed Him? Secondly, you disobeyed who the prophets are allowed to send them when he told you do not move, even if you see birds eating our flesh, still do

00:31:03 --> 00:31:29

not move, then why did you move assigned to him you disobeyed. But this disobedience was a result of what? Seeing that which they loved, seeing that which they wanted the dunya Allah says, Men come among you is who may you read the dunya he who wants the dunya women come May you read will occur and among you are those who desire the hereafter.

00:31:31 --> 00:31:51

Among you are still present those who love the dunya, whose goal is the dunya, who want the things of this world. And among you are those who want the hereafter. Those who left their positions, what was their goal, the dunya and those who stayed in their positions, what was their goal, the akhirah

00:31:53 --> 00:31:54

those who wanted the dunya

00:31:55 --> 00:32:10

love of this world, love of the things of this world, what happened, it led them to three things, disobedience, dispute, and weakness apart.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:19

And this is the result of the love of this world. When a person loves the things of this dunya then what happens?

00:32:21 --> 00:32:37

He ends up disobeying Allah, how the person sometimes knows that this object is something that I should not use. It doesn't belong to me it belongs to someone else. But the love of that object makes a person disobey Allah.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:39

Does it?

00:32:40 --> 00:32:41

Yes, it does.

00:32:43 --> 00:32:46

Likewise, it leads to trouser fighting. How?

00:32:48 --> 00:32:55

Why do you wear my scarf? Why do you use my cream? Come on. It's only cream. No, but why did you it belongs to me. You never asked me.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:07

Then as are what do siblings fight about? This is my no this is mine. This is my no this is my my turn. No, my turn. Correct.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:16

The nazzer dispute fighting because of what love of this world and this doesn't just happen in children, even in adults.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:27

Even the husband and wife sometimes argue were what? What were things. This is my car, I bought it. This is my money. My dad gave it.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:44

arguments, even in adults over what over the things of this world. And thirdly, facial confessional, weakness of heart. Because the love of this world makes a person a coward.

00:33:45 --> 00:33:56

Because she is crying. Why? Because a necklace broke. She is so sad because she lost her favorite belt.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:05

She is so upset because her sweater shrank in the dryer. Right?

00:34:06 --> 00:34:12

So upsets whole sad because the newly painted wall got scratched

00:34:13 --> 00:34:37

sauce sad for Shenton if you think about it, especially women, what's our weakness, our stuff, our jewelry, our clothes, our pains, our houses, our belongings, our sheets, our linens, our towels, our clean mirror that we just cleaned and somebody comes in splashes water over it and we're so upset and furious, disheartened.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:59

Because it's the love of this dunya the love of this dunya weakens a person makes him a coward. He cannot part with his favorite things or her favorite things. And this is the cause of defeat and failure. If you think about it, the things of this world they're temporary things, but still we got to

00:35:00 --> 00:35:11

Whole attached with them that we can't even think about parting with them. And if something, God forbid, something happens to them, we are so disheartened, we cannot focus on anything.

00:35:12 --> 00:35:22

If we don't have something, we feel we are so deprived, we are so poor, we're so unfortunate. And if we have something, we think we're so lucky,

00:35:23 --> 00:36:05

we give so much importance to this dunya. But the more important the dunya becomes to a person, the more likely he is to fail, which is why we see that these days, especially, there is a lot of focus on being minimalists, right, that having the least amount of things possible. There are so many reviews out there, which mentioned this concept of being a minimalist. Like many journalists, they have written about this one individual that was reading an article that he had written about how when he started making money, immediately, he bought a house and then he had to furniture to fill up that house. And then he had to, you know, pay the bills, and he had to renovate and do one thing

00:36:05 --> 00:36:44

after the other, it got so stuck in that vicious cycle. And then you have to get all these gadgets, and then you have to update them. And he said he was living elsewhere. But because his house was somewhere else, he had to keep going back and then somebody else was living in their house. So he had to take care of the house maintain the house as well. And he realized that so much effort and energy was going into something that he did not need. So he left everything, sold everything, kept the money in his pocket, limited himself to a few objects to a few things. And then he said that he's happier, he's more productive. And he's more focused on his work.

00:36:45 --> 00:36:56

But what happens when we go to the store and we see something nice and bright and pink and yellow? And we're like, oh, it's so cute. How can I not have it? I have this in pink. But look, the yellow one looks so nice.

00:36:57 --> 00:37:22

Um, but this wall is empty. So I needed something to put on the wall. And this room doesn't have a rug. So I need that rug. And how about these new cushion covers? And how about those cushions? You know, one thing after the other keeps coming. You get stuck in the cycle. But these things do not please you, they cannot bring you happiness. Because when you're buying them you're very happy. But when you get home, then you're like, Okay, where do I put this,

00:37:23 --> 00:37:27

then you don't have the space and then you're sad because you don't have a bigger house.

00:37:28 --> 00:38:10

Right? You don't have your own space, you have to share your bedroom with your sister, you can't do things your own ways it makes you even more sad. And then you don't know what to get rid of. Because you don't want to get rid of anything. So really, you get stuck in the cycle. It distracts you What does Allah subhanaw taala say l hare Komuter khairthal. The strive for increase has distracted you. This dunya wanting more, has distracted you distracted you from what from your main focus from your main purpose, and what is that the hereafter, but even your worldly goals, you get distracted from them. Why? Because of your attachment to the dunya.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:18

until you let go, you cannot focus until you let go of things. You cannot be successful.

00:38:20 --> 00:38:47

If you read about the seal of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there is a book by Ibrahim Zadran mod. It's a very different style of looking at the prophets of Allah cinemas life that he talks about the things that the Prophet salallahu Salam possessed, he talks about the armor of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, the servants, and so on and so forth. And if you look at the things that he possessed, there were so few, so few.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:52

And because of that he was able to do so much in his life.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:11

The problem with us is at home, we're sitting we're looking at the wall and we're looking at the painting and then we're reflecting on the bookshelf. And then we're reflecting on you know, the lines or the pattern on the cushion covers and then we're reflecting on the greens on the wood floor. And how much time has gone in that 15 minutes easily. Gone.

00:39:13 --> 00:39:30

Right so much time has gone in just picking up the things and putting them and setting them and putting them away and then using them and packing them up and cleaning them and I'm not saying that empty up your house and live with nothing. No, enjoy the thing that Allah subhanaw taala has given you but please let's not get attached to them.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:35

Because when we get attached to them, then we cannot do anything else in life.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:56

We cannot I'm not saying leave your house dirty and messy. No, I'm not saying don't get nice things. No do that. But it should be within a limit and that should not be our main priority. Because if it becomes our main priority, then we are bound to fail in life.

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

So Hutta either for Shilton what

00:40:00 --> 00:40:53

In Azerbaijan, Phil Emery will say to mimbar, the Morocco Mata hipbone men coming up to dunya women coming up to Hera some masala for Kumaran home, then he turned you away from them sawed off a comb from soft solder affair, which is to turn away to divert. So he turned you away from WHO? unharmed from them, who does them refer to the enemy, that you were going to gain victory over them, but then Allah turned you away from them, meaning he turned you defeated. He turned you away from wished again with defeat. Why, Lea Metalia, calm so that he can test you he can try you that who will realize his mistake, who will accept his mistake? Who will complain? And who will blame? Because

00:40:53 --> 00:41:32

when we fail at something, how do we react? Sometimes we reflect on our mistakes and other times we blame others. You know, it's because of her that such and such happen. It's because of him that this and this happen. We blame or we complain, Leah Botania Allah is testing our reaction over there. How do we react? Who do we point fingers at ourselves or others? While a quarter our fair and calm, but certainly ALLAH has forgiven you. Beautiful, Allah has pardoned you, Allah forgive the Sahaba He forgive the companions for even such a huge mistake they made why?

00:41:33 --> 00:41:42

Why did he forgive them? The Prophet sallallahu sallam was almost killed in that battle. So many Muslims were killed in that battle. Why did Allah forgive them?

00:41:43 --> 00:41:47

Why? Think about it? Why did Allah forgive them?

00:41:49 --> 00:42:36

They accepted their mistakes, they reformed, they repented, they made up for the wrongs that was committed. The mistake that was committed that we see that when the machine attacked, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called the Muslims come to me. Some of them came to him, others ran away. But then eventually, many Sahaba they joined the Prophet salallahu Salam, and those who did not who were not able to, they regretted in their hearts, they felt sorry, in their hearts. They sought forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala so we'll look at the our foreign comb. And besides the people who were with the Prophet salallahu Salam remember they weren't not ordinary believers. The sacrifices they

00:42:36 --> 00:42:43

had to make were enormous. And if they made a mistake, after all, they were who human beings

00:42:44 --> 00:43:07

they were human beings so ALLAH forgive them. Well Allah who fell blin or another meanie and Allah is possessor of grace over the believers meaning he is very gracious towards the believers. He's very kind and generous towards them. When they make a mistake, the human error because they're humans after all, they seek forgiveness they reform then Allah also forgives them.

00:43:09 --> 00:43:10

Listen to the recitation of these verses

00:43:12 --> 00:43:13

you follow

00:43:22 --> 00:43:26

useful on one that one woman

00:43:29 --> 00:43:30

will be

00:43:31 --> 00:43:34

warning me one out

00:43:37 --> 00:43:40

Oh, that will soon

00:43:41 --> 00:43:42

be in

00:43:45 --> 00:43:46

either so she'll

00:43:48 --> 00:43:49

feel

00:43:55 --> 00:43:55

awkward

00:43:57 --> 00:44:00

to him. Oh, my.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:06

God don't do near me.

00:44:16 --> 00:44:16

One

00:44:19 --> 00:44:19

one

00:44:22 --> 00:44:24

meaning.

00:44:26 --> 00:44:53

So what do we see in this verse that Allah helped the Muslims at just as he helped them at but just because the Muslims failed, does not mean that Allah did not help them. Allah did help them he fulfilled his promise. Then we see here that the reasons for defeat are mentioned and what are they fascial the nazzer and it we see and so the next time we are getting into too many arguments and disputes know that you're heading towards failure.

00:44:54 --> 00:45:00

If you're having too many arguments, over random things over petty things with your spouse

00:45:00 --> 00:45:33

else with your friends with your sibling with your children know that your relationship is heading towards failure. It is not healthy for a relationship. If you're getting into too many arguments with your boss, with your co workers, what does it mean? You're not going to stay in that workplace for long, isn't it? So? Likewise, if you lose courage, if you say I can't do it, you give up, then definitely, you cannot do it. Likewise, disobedience when a person disobeyed Allah in something, then he cannot be successful in that work.

00:45:34 --> 00:45:55

And unfortunately, many things in life are started with disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala. If you think about it, a wedding even? How many times is Allah disobeyed these days in weddings? So many times? And then we wonder, why are we having problems? Why? Because we're disobeying Allah,

00:45:56 --> 00:46:00

or C, and this is something that leads to failure.

00:46:02 --> 00:46:38

Then we also learn in this ayah that there is always room for improvement, that no matter who we are, we have shortcomings we have weaknesses. When there are things in our character, in our attitude, in our work ethic that all need fixing that need refinement, no human being has reached the level of perfection. None of us can say I am perfect at this. No, there's always something that we lack. There's always something that needs to be fixed. Because if for the Sahaba Allah says that among you are those who love the world. And what about us?

00:46:40 --> 00:46:51

What about us? Definitely will have the world. Definitely there are many shortcomings in us. So basically, the point here is that never think that now I'm good.

00:46:52 --> 00:47:10

And everything that never think that just because you're studying the Quran and the weekends hamdulillah I'm good now. I started praying five times a day. I'm good now. I started wearing the hijab. No, I'm good. No, no, there is always room for improvement. There's always things that you need to fix and refine and improve on.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:24

Then we also learn this idea that Allah forgave the Companions because no matter how righteous a person may become, he can still make mistakes. What has to be done is a person should seek forgiveness from Allah
