00:00:01 --> 00:00:51

I'm Tara, have you not seen Isla Lavina? To those people who it's amazing look at these people. Those people who feel alone it was sad to them, Go for idea come, hold your hands back restrain your hands go full from Kapha. Caf is to restrain to hold back. So they were told, restrain your hands, hold your hands back, meaning do not attack do not take revenge do not fight. Like I mentioned earlier, the Muslims were not allowed to fight the enemy at the beginning. Instead, the focus was on what on self development. And this is the reason why they were told that instead of fighting the enemy, what should you do? Well Kamal Salah established the salah will add to the character and give

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

this occur.

00:00:53 --> 00:01:35

We learned that it been our blessedly low on who he said that man when are off and several of his companions. Once they came to the Prophet salallahu Salam in Makkah, while they were all in Makkah, still, they hadn't migrated yet. And they said, O Allah's Prophet, we were a mighty when we were pagans. But when we embraced Islam, we became weak, that nobody would dare raise a finger against us in the year now we've become so weak, everyone's attacking us. So in other words, demand Please allow us to defend ourselves. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, in the omit to be Thereof We, in the omit to be laugh, we fell out to cut a little comb. He said, I have been commanded to forgive

00:01:35 --> 00:02:19

the people, to pardon the people. So do not fight them. Do not fight them so they were not allowed to fight. Instead, the focus was on what praise Allah gives her work on yourself Self improvement, be patient, forgive others, build inner strength, build spiritual strength. And then later on when the Muslims migrated to Medina, then what happened? The Muslims were told, fight the enemy, they're coming to attack you now you have to fight. Allah says file AMA, then when could Ebola you will pick up when fighting was made mandatory for them meaning they were commanded to fight. Then what happened? Either for you coming home, then a group from them for you federal cloth, a group from

00:02:19 --> 00:02:37

them, what happened yell Shona, NASA, they began to fear people, the same people that they wanted to fight. Now they began fearing them. How much are they fearing them? Go Hushai Attila he liked the fear that they should have of Allah.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

They fear people, as one should fear Allah,

00:02:42 --> 00:03:16

the fear of Allah, it stops the person from doing what he wants to do, isn't it? Like you want to do something wrong but the fear of Allah stops he doesn't let you do it. So over here in this situation, the fear of these people stopped them from taking revenge that they badly wanting to take earlier. Allah says, oh, a shed the cashier or even stronger in feared meaning they fear them even more than they fear Allah. And isn't this true? That sometimes we fear people more than we fear Allah?

00:03:17 --> 00:03:43

Which is why when people are in front of us, we pray, but when they're not there, we don't care about if we pray and how we pray, and when we pray. Right. So what does that show that the fear of people is more is stronger than the fear of Allah will call you? And they said, Well, I've been out or our Lord Lima Tabitha Elena pika, or Allah? Why, why? Why

00:03:44 --> 00:04:22

isn't this what we say? Sometimes? They said, Oh Allah, why did you make it mandatory on us? Why have you commanded us to fight? We don't want to whine Lima Katara Lena pika. They say, No, no, why not a hall tonight you delayed for us a quarter, Hamza Harada. He is to defer to delay. So why did you not defer for us? Isla Hmm. Kareem to a near term Ajah Hamza Jim lamb is used for a specific point in time and also a period of time. So why didn't you delay for some more time?

00:04:24 --> 00:04:59

When you don't want to do something? And you know, you have to do it. Then what do you want? What do you want? That you should be given more time? Like, please let us submit the assignment next week. Please defer the test two more weeks. defer the test three weeks, but you know what, something that's coming will eventually come. Whether it comes tomorrow or it comes five weeks later, it will come so delaying it is not going to make any difference. So what's necessary on your part preparation be ready for it. They say Lola a hot donor Isla Gillian Kuldeep. But what does I call it?

00:05:00 --> 00:05:07

Do you behind this? Why do we want things to be put off? Even five minutes, even for 10 minutes? Why is it that we delay things?

00:05:08 --> 00:05:50

Because we don't want to do it? Right? What we don't want to do what we find difficult to do we keep putting it off. isn't at all. We keep putting it off. And then what happens? We realize it's so late, it's meaningless. And then delete, delete, delete, you know what I'm talking about? Yeah. It's like if there's a to do list that you've made for yourself, something you've got to do today, you don't do it you defer to next week, which you defer to next week and you keep delaying. Eventually a time comes when it doesn't matter whether you do it or not. So then what happens next, finally, check it off. Just remove it, erase it, get rid of it. Cool. Allah says say Madera. duniya. Cali.

00:05:50 --> 00:06:37

The benefit of the slave the enjoyment of this life is temporary. When there are two and the hereafter is higher on it is far better. Lemonade took off for the one who fears Allah. Well, I told her Munna Fatima, and you will not be wronged even as much as if a deal what is the Fatima? A thread inside a Dead Sea? Now, what do we see over here that the Muslims were told to wait initially? Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala knows when it is the right time for something. When we want to do something, and someone tells us No, not right now, next year, or next month or tomorrow, then what happens? We get discouraged immediately. We don't want to do it. We don't like that. Right? Because

00:06:37 --> 00:07:03

we want to do it immediately. So if somebody tells us no, wait, we don't like that at all. Now, later on, when they were commanded, what happened? They didn't want to fight. Why? Because the thing is that when you're suffering from pain, and you want improvement, when you desire improvement, then you're full of enthusiasm. You're full of energy, and you have so much passion for the work.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:40

But just because you're passionate, just because you're enthusiastic doesn't mean that it is still practical to do it. Because if it's not practical, that means you won't be successful. Do you see what I mean? Like for example, there's someone who's 17 years old, and they say, I really want to get married. Okay, I really want to get married and the parents like No, no, not right now. Not right now. Wait for another year. Wait until you turn 20 wait until you're done school. Wait until you you're you're working. Like no, I want to get married. I'm ready for it. Right? People say such things, right?

00:07:42 --> 00:08:27

Yeah, or that actually feel such things. But anyway, just because they want to doesn't mean they're ready for it. Just because they're very passionate about it doesn't mean that it's practical for them? No. If you let a 17 year old boy get married, then what is he going to do? He's gonna ruin somebody's life, probably. Right? He's gonna make a mess of his life. And later on, Who's he going to blame his parents? Why did you let me I don't know what I was going into. So just because you are very passionate about something doesn't mean that it's practical at that time to do it. Who knows someone who has more experience, someone who has more knowledge, they know when it will be the right

00:08:27 --> 00:09:05

time to do it. So this is why the parents say not now, when you're done your university, not now when you turn 25 For example, why? Because they know from experience from their observation that that is the right age. But people who are being told no, they get very offended. And now what happens, they have gone through those few years of difficulty and you know, facing such a huge challenge and going against all society and their parents not being 100% happy with them. They're trying to convince them but they're not getting anywhere. After a few years. What happened to that, you know what, I accept it now my parents don't want me to get married, fine, I'm not going to get

00:09:05 --> 00:09:46

married, I'm going to do something else. I'm going to focus on my career. So they focus on their career. And now their parents are worried now Come on, get married. But like No, no, I don't want to right now. Next year, next year, next year. Why? Because now they have found comfort in something else. Right? Now they have something else to identify themselves with. Right? They have something else that they're passionate about. But the parents know that this is the time and if they don't get married, now, it's not going to be good for them for their future, for example. Okay. So look at it the same way the Sahaba they wanted to fight, but it was not the right time.

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

They were not ready for it. The situation was still premature. When it matured. They had found comfort and other things. They didn't want to fight Allah says look, if you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:45

Before you were desperate, and now you have no interest. And you're like, why are you telling us like the children? They say, Mom, why are you telling me that? Why are you telling me yesterday you were begging them? And now you're saying, Why are you telling me? So it's amazing. So basically, what do we learn over here? The main lesson we learn here is that the one who knows more, who has more experience more knowledge, trust them. Don't just trust your passion, and your enthusiasm, trust to the one who is more knowledgeable, the one who has more experience, they know when is the right time to do something. At nama Taku and also, when you lack the passion to do what is necessary

00:10:45 --> 00:11:32

to do what is important. Like it was a habit they didn't want to fight when they were told to What did Allah subhanaw taala say to them, remember that the life of this dunya the enjoyment of this dunya is temporary, it's not forever. Right now you don't want to move right now you want to rest. But remind yourself that this enjoyment is temporary. Soon you will be lying in your grave. Still unmoving. The time to move is now the time to do something is now and remind yourself a number takuna wherever you may be, you'd recommend Mao's death is going to overtake you, you drink a dog, doll or cat What does that mean? To perceive and also to catch up with so you dread come on mount it

00:11:32 --> 00:12:22

will catch up with you, it will take you and will reach you it will encompass you you cannot escape it. Wherever you will be death is going to come to you. People die in their cars people die in their homes. People die at the hospital people die at the grocery store. People die at school people die at work. People can die anywhere. Where does the person die where his death is decreed. So a nama takuna you drinkable mouth death is going to overtake you because it is a reality. While Oconto even if you were feeble rooted in macheda, even if you were within towers of lofty construction Bucha the plural of Burj Bao Rajiv and Burgess tower a tall tower that is visible from far Burj Khalifa Are

00:12:22 --> 00:12:23

you familiar with it?

00:12:24 --> 00:12:53

If you're in the bay anywhere even outside of the bay and you look in that direction where you're gonna see Burj Khalifa it stands out, right? So this is what a Bucha is a tower and macheda from Shinya dal sheen Jada Shah they actually do is to plaster okay to plaster something it is to construct to fortify to strengthen. Now for example, if you have a brick wall, why do you plaster it on top? Why?

00:12:54 --> 00:13:45

To make it strong? Alright, so I'm wishing you that even if it is constructed really well, even if it's really strong of mighty construction still, the Angel of Death can penetrate that wall. The Angel of Death can access you anywhere anyplace you are well Oh quantum people, Rudy Masha, yada. So, this is a reality data is coming. And this realization should move us to do what is more important. Sometimes we delay and we defer, but remind yourself that I am going to die very soon. I am going to die very soon. So what is it that I want to accomplish before I die? What is it that I want to make sure I have done before I die. And if I want to do it, I better do it. Now if I'm

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

delaying it, that means it's not important to me.

00:13:49 --> 00:13:53

Because death can come anytime I might never be able to do it. So do it now.

00:13:54 --> 00:14:33

What aimlessly boom has an attorney if something good befalls them, if they gain some benefit your Kulu they say had the human are in the lab this is from Allah. This is a response of average people that if they get something good something nice is a yeah, thank you Allah You know, it's from Allah. Allah blessings on me. Allah's mercy on me, Well ain't to say perhaps a year or two and if some evil befalls them, your Kulu they say had the human or in the they say this is from you? Who does you refer to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam meaning they would blame the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for what they would suffer in their lives? Do we do this? Then when we have something good? We're like,

00:14:33 --> 00:14:59

Yeah, you know, Allah, so kind to me. But when we're suffering from a problem, from some kind of difficulty, then what do we do? It's because of her. It's because of him. It's because of you. It's because of she it's because of them. Right is what we do. We blame others. Why? When does a person blame others when he doesn't want to take responsibility for his own shortcoming for his own fault? For his own

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01


00:15:02 --> 00:15:44

you know, earlier, we learned that the muscles were not allowed to fight early. Why? Because we're not ready for it. Before you go into something you need training for all those years, 13 years, they were basically undergoing training. When they were ready, then they were told to fight. It's like when a teenager says, I want to get married, the parents say no. Why? Because they're not ready for marriage yet. If a child says, who's two years old? I want to go to school with my sister. Will the parents let them go? Even if the parents let that two year old kid go? Will the school accept? No. Why? Because that child is not ready. You need time for training?

00:15:45 --> 00:16:00

Right? You need time for training. And sometimes we don't accept the advice of other people. They tell us don't it's not the right time, but we do it anyway. And when we do it, and then we suffer, then what do we do? We blame them.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:50

My mom made me do this. My dad never told me about the risks involved. My mom never told me about the huge responsibility that comes along with the glamour of marriage. Right? This is what we do. We blame other people. Allah says, bull say to them kilometer in the law, everything is from Allah. Whether something good or something bad if it has happened in your life, it has happened because Allah allowed it to happen. Kilometer India Allah, Allah says firmer so what is Leha Allah it'll come for these people. Like our doula they are nowhere near you can do now from calf well done. Remember the word he Academy Boko is to be almost at the verge of something so like I do not they

00:16:50 --> 00:17:16

are not near they're nowhere near you have Kahuna they understand from fifth fell off her understanding. They're nowhere near understanding hardyston any speech? Reading no matter what these people are told they don't get it. What's wrong with these people? The fact is, it's something that we want to understand we understand very quickly. And what we don't want to understand no matter what explanation somebody gives us, what do we say? I don't get it.

00:17:17 --> 00:18:05

I don't get it. My mom's been telling me but I don't get it. She's on a different planet. Why? Because you don't want to listen to her. You don't want to be at the same level. So Allah says familia hola El Cajon, La Jolla, Caledonia Kahuna, Hadith, Allah says Mercer bekam and Hassan attain whatever good reaches you. If you receive something good in your life, firming Allah than it is from Allah. Every good thing in your life is from WHO? Allah whether it is success, or it is some kind of blessing, or it is kind of you know, worldly achievement, anything at all is for who Allah wa Saba come into Jaedyn and if something evil befalls you, then from enough sick then it is from yourself.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:23

What does it mean? We learned earlier Allah says go Lumina. In the law, everything is from Allah. And over here Allah says anything bad is from you. Is this contradiction is this contradiction, because people look at such verses and to say, oh, look contradiction in the Quran. How do we understand this?

00:18:24 --> 00:18:40

phenomena in the law means everything happens with the permission of Allah, even if it's something bad, Allah allows it to happen, which is why it has happened. Not because someone was there, or someone wanted it. No, it's because Allah allowed it.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:56

And when Allah says, something bad befalls you, it's because of you. That means it is your fault, meaning you did something which brought about this result. And that result Allah did not prevented from coming Allah let it happen.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:06

You understand? Allah did not prevent it from happening, Allah let it happen. It's like, if you eat something that's bad for you.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:53

You eat it stale food, all food, or food that you are allergic to you have it. And then you suffer the consequences. You have severe diarrhea, for example. So what does it mean? Whose fault is it Allah's fault? That he made you sick? Is it whose fault is it? Your fault, you ate something that's not good for you made that that decision for yourself. But Allah, that didn't happen. He didn't force you. He didn't stop you. He let you do what you want. Because Allah has given us the freedom, the free choice to do what we want to do. He doesn't force his way on us. He has given us a choice because this is the test with that freedom. Do we obey Him? Or do we disobey Him? Do we do something

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

sensible? Or do we do something that's crazy? What do we do? That's the test. So Allah says, well, now

00:20:00 --> 00:20:31

Assad welcome inside yeah come from enough sick. It's your fault. It's because of your poor planning. It's because of your jumping into it too quickly. It's because of your own shortcomings. We're also neck alumnus and you are prophets on a lot of sudden we have sent you to the people as what as a Rasul Allah as a messenger, work if I believe he Shahida And sufficient is Allah as a witness, meaning even if people don't accept Allah is sufficient as a witness that you are indeed a messenger.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:37

The thing is that some people consider the prophets of Allah to set them to be a source of bad luck for them.

00:20:38 --> 00:21:07

That they said you know, before he came to Medina, everything was fine. And since he has come to Medina, what has happened? We are suffering from so many problems every other year there are people coming to harm us to attack us. So whenever there are some laws, they will blame who Hamad salatu salam, if they were victorious, they would say, Yeah, you know, Allah's blessing. But what does Allah say? It's not because of the existence of some person somewhere. It's because of your own actions.

00:21:08 --> 00:21:12

Always take responsibility for your suffering.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:26

What that means is that if there is something wrong, that's happening, something that's not right, don't blame others. Don't blame others.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:31

Because if you blame others, you will never be able to solve the problem.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:49

What the chatline do IBLEES What did he do? When Allah told him prostrate to Adam, and he didn't prostrate? What happened? He was in trouble, right? And he said, Fatima, wait, and he or Allah, He, you lead me astray. It's your fault.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:16

Right? And he blamed Adam. That because Allah told me do prostrate to him. This is why I ended up in this mess. But is that the correct way of looking at the situation? No, if he accepted his fault, that I was wrong, in not listening to Allah. If he admitted his fault, could he have solved the problem? Very easily asking Allah for forgiveness. And Allah is the web Rahim.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:29

When we blame others, we don't take responsibility for our actions, then you know what? We are not solving the problem. We are worsening the problem. We're worsening the situation.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:45

If something wrong has happened, I've made it my shortcoming in the law. He were in it Roger was the fifth allawah to buoy lay, and then focus on okay, what can we do to fix it? What can we do to improve it?

00:22:46 --> 00:22:48

Reformation comes after realization

00:22:50 --> 00:23:02

that if something strange is happening, and we say, oh, that person did black magic, must have this person they were looking at me they're evil i, this person there and we we blame others right.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:11

But whose fault is it? In reality, our fault? We didn't do our God. We didn't take protection with Allah. Right? Through the ways that he has taught us.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:54

So some people they would blame the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he is a source of bad luck. Allah says no, you're not a source of bad luck. We have sent you as a messenger. Waka Fabula, he Shahida my uterus was Sula. Whoever obeys the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Faqad Akbar Allah, then reality he has obeyed Allah, woman to Allah and whoever turns away from our Santa Clara lay him her Phila, then we have not sent you over them as a Hatfield, who is Hatfield, a guardian, someone who is to keep an eye and watch over and observe other people very closely and ensure that they're doing everything right. So messengers that a lot of sudden we have only sent you to convey not to watch

00:23:54 --> 00:24:00

over them, who is going to watch over their deeds and call them to account? Allah subhanaw taala well,

00:24:01 --> 00:24:42

so the messenger should not be blamed. Rather, he should be obeyed and followed. Dean should not be blamed, it should be embraced and observed, for whose good, our own good because sometimes it happens that when we start doing something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, we face difficulty we say, you know, since I've started this course, strange things have started to happen in my life. This happened and then that happened, and then this happened, and that happened. We started listing all the things since I started doing this course, since I joined that that read class. Do we do that sometimes?

00:24:43 --> 00:24:44

Very often.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:59

Our parents ask us, Why aren't you doing well at school? It's because this weekend, of course that you've put me in, obviously my weather two days a week when I'm going to study for school? Yes, I have all the time in the world for Facebook. I have all the time in the world to go have dessert with my friends.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

tend to go to movies. But when it comes to studying all of a sudden there's so much of the work.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:37

Sometimes we do this so we have to look at ourselves that are we blaming the dean for our own problems, our own mistakes, our own shortcomings. The dean is not to be blamed, it is to be embraced and followed, dislike the messenger SallAllahu Sallam he is not to be blamed he is to be followed my up Rasul Allah, Allah whoever obeys the messenger, he is obeyed Allah, whoever turns away. It's not the messengers fault. It's not the Dean's fault. recitation.

God, I mean, you have been your wall.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:36

When you're Punahou not our tone, and they say obedience. Reading there's some people who when they come to you, they say to you just to fulfill that for manatee that far, far. Meaning we obey you will obey you will listen to you as you command and we will obey. You know you instruct and here we are ready? We're going to obey you. Why did they say this just customarily just to you know, fulfill the formality, this hill thorough.

00:28:37 --> 00:29:24

So in other words, they do a lot of lip service, they talk a lot, but when it comes time to do action, what happens for either a buzzer woman or Indic than when they appear from you? Barraza is to appear meaning they leave you and they go out. Then what happens? Bae Yetta he spends night from bat yet bathe his house and Bay Yetta is to spend the night doing something like for example a group of people sitting together all night long. What are they doing talking chatting, conversing, this is what by Yetta so what happens a group of them be at a toy for two Minho a group of them they spend the night doing what saying what Leila, other than ality the goal that which it said to you, the

00:29:24 --> 00:29:25

goal means it

00:29:27 --> 00:29:51

refers to it and it refers to refer, meaning that same group when they were with you the same car, but when they are away from you. They spend all their night doing what contrary to what they said to you. In other words, in front of you, they say we obey you, when they're away from you, then what do they do? They disobey you. They contradict their own words.

00:29:52 --> 00:29:57

They contradict their own words. They go against their own statements, their own claims,

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

and later Lolita

00:30:00 --> 00:30:42

Call the call can also be understood as you say, meaning they do other than what you will prophets are allowed to set himself to them. In front of you, they say we will obey you, but when they're away from you, then they disobey you. They do other than what you have instructed them to do. Allah says Allah Who Yakubu and Allah is recording, may you be ketone he is writing whatever they are spending their nights then meaning whatever plotting they're doing in the night, whatever planning conspiracy, whatever they're doing in the night, Allah knows for our to thornham So what should you do? Turn away from such people? What the What color Allah and trust upon Allah? Why? Because he will

00:30:42 --> 00:31:26

protect you waka Fabula. He will Keeler And sufficient is Allah as Joaquin as someone on whom you do Tawakkol someone who will dispose of your affairs in the correct manner. And some people they're very insincere to you. They're double faced, deceptive, dishonest, they're actually enemies, but they appear to us friends, they're hidden enemies. So if there is a hidden enemy, someone who appears to be a friend who says one thing to you and behind you, they go against you. In front of either praise you behind you, they backbite they defame you. They talk nasty things about you, they accuse you of things you have not done or said. Such people are dishonest, right? And you feel very

00:31:26 --> 00:32:04

hurt because of them. What does Allah say to the messenger, don't worry about that, I'll take care of them, I will protect you from them. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that if a person says every day in the morning, and every night in the evening Bismillah Hilah delay alumasc Me shameful ugly will ever cement well, who was Samir al Arlene? Then what will happen? What will happen? Nothing at all can harm him if he says this three times in the morning and three times in the evening, nothing at all can harm him. So some dangers are very visible, some enemies are very visible, and others are hidden. You cannot even identify them.

00:32:05 --> 00:32:55

You are afraid you are concerned inside but you can't do anything because you're hidden. So in this situation, take refuge with who? Allah subhanaw taala Allah says FNA that the Brunel Quran, do these people not reflect on the Quran? Yet at the Bologna from the double Dalbello to reflect? Do these people not reflect on the Quran? Because the thing is, that when a person reflects on the Quran, not just recites not just studies, but he reflects, and what does it mean by reflection, then you read, and you analyze, and you relate, and you read over and over. And what you say you think about, you apply to yourself, you related with your daily life, this is a reflection. So when a person reflects

00:32:55 --> 00:33:01

on the Quran, this is what will straighten him up inside and outside.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:44

The mirror study of the Quran doesn't help a person fix himself. What helps you fix yourself? What helps you reflection? Because when you're reflecting, then you look at your faults. And then you realize, yeah, I have this problem. I need to work on this. Yeah, this is actually not right. You know, for example, the verses that we just learned, we're reflecting on them as well. Right? So one thing that we learned after reflection is that when something goes wrong, most of the time, whose fault is it our own faults? So instead of blaming others, what should we do? blame ourselves take responsibility, so that we can focus on fixing the problem.

00:33:45 --> 00:34:30

When do you learn this lesson upon reflection, right, now, when you have learned this lesson, and you apply it, then what will happen, it will fix you outside and inside, inside, that you will take responsibility outside that you will not blame others. So this is a fact that when a person reflects on the Quran, only then he can straighten up inside and outside because the Quran forces you to look at yourself in the mirror. Look at those things that you don't want to see. Look at those faults and those blemishes and shortcomings that you don't want to acknowledge. You know, for example, if there's a mark on your face, or there's something and you don't like it, then you don't even want to

00:34:30 --> 00:34:30

look at it.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:35

Right? You don't even want to see it. Because you don't want to acknowledge that it's there.

00:34:36 --> 00:34:59

If there's a defect on the body, then what happens? We don't even want to see it, we hide it. We don't look at it ourselves. We don't let other people see it. Right? Isn't that what we do? Tell me Isn't that what we do? But when you reflect on the Quran and what happens, the things you don't want to see you're forced to look at. Things you don't want to acknowledge you are forced to acknowledge them. So

00:35:00 --> 00:35:23

You acknowledge them only then you can work to fix them. Allah says fly at the Brunel Quran. Why don't they reflect on the Quran? Well, oh can I make it rain delayed Allah He, if this Quran was from other than Allah, then what would happen? LaWanda Doofy he surely these people would have found in it if the left hand cathedra much if they laugh if the left hand column fell

00:35:25 --> 00:36:09

behind, okay and also if the left oppose. So if there have been things that are opposing one another, in other words, contradictions. If this Quran was from other than Allah, there will be many contradictions in it, many irregularities in it, many lies in it many wrong statements in it, but the Quran is free from that. So what does it mean that it is from Allah? So when it is from Allah, it is true, it is factual. But why don't they take advantage? Why don't they take benefit? What either Joe whom I'm ruminal Omnia, will hold up. And when an affair comes to them, I'm over here gives me good news. Okay. When some news of what I'm going, or how I'm going is security, safety

00:36:09 --> 00:36:11

Hamza mean, known and how vSphere.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:26

They hear some news about safety, or some danger, which, you know, brings about fear in them, what happens, what's the reaction, or there'll be this spread around after the loss.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:57

Until the Battle of the Trench, in the fifth year, the Muslims were in constant fear of the attack of the enemy. There was always this anxiety that the machine or the enemy would come and attack and harm the Muslims. And also, because the machine of Makkah had harmed the Muslims, so much the rest of the Arabian tribes all over the Arabian Peninsula, all of a sudden, they had the courage to go and harm the Muslims.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:39

Remember, the incident bitten? Morona, the word people came, and they requested the prophets of Allah, and please send some people with us to teach us, right. So that took them and they killed all of them. Right? several incidents happened like that. So the Muslims in Medina were in constant fear. And when a group of people are afraid of something, or they are anticipating something, then what happens? Rumors spread very quickly, isn't it? It's like, you really want somebody to come. Right? You really want somebody to come. So what happens? Every few days, somebody says, Oh, you know, they're coming. I heard so and so said, they're coming. I heard so and so said they're coming.

00:37:40 --> 00:38:23

And when you find out, now they're not coming. So rumors spread very quickly. But who spreads rumors, those people who are weak in their heart, who are weak in their heart, because those people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, they do not spread rumors, they do not pass on any information until they have ascertained it until they have checked that it is accurate. But when someone's heart is weak, they're not strong. Then what happens, whatever they hear, they accept it, and they pass it on. And as they pass it on, they add something to it as well, to make it more acceptable to people. The prophets have a lot of centum said ghafar Bill McKibben, and you had data

00:38:23 --> 00:38:28

with Colima, semirara narrating everything when here's a sufficient to make a person a liar.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:53

If you go on telling everything that you've heard, so until said this once, who said that and you go pass on that information, then this is what you're lying, because you're not checking, is it true or not? Is it accurate or not? So, these people then when after looking, what would they do anything they would hear any news of fear, you know, of an enemy or something good, what would they do immediately or there will be

00:38:54 --> 00:39:22

a there is from that era in and they is to reveal to expose to make something known that should not be exposed. It's like, you know, some things are, are meant to be private and confidential and secrets. But some people what do they do? Because they want to appear as I know everything. What do they do any information they hear, you know, you know, did you hear?

00:39:23 --> 00:39:32

Because they want to appear as annoyed all. I know everything, I'm the best. Right? I have such big ears. I know everything that's going on.

00:39:33 --> 00:39:42

I'm so knowledgeable and so much information, whether it's relevant or irrelevant, doesn't matter, but I just know everything. So immediately or there will be this credit.

00:39:44 --> 00:40:00

Allah says, well overdue, instead of spreading it, if they had Raghu if they had referred it, or Radha Radha that to return, if they had taken that piece of information, and they had taken

00:40:00 --> 00:40:45

To do a lawsuit to the messenger, with a lead and towards oil embodiment home, those people have authority among them, then that would have been better, right? When you hear something before passing it on always confirm, is it true or not? Who do you confirm it with people who are in authority, people who are in charge? And then just because it's true doesn't mean that it has to be spread around. Allah says if they had referred to people who are knowledgeable to people who are responsible, then lie Lima who ladina he would have known it who would have known it Alladhina Yes, them built on a home in home. Those people who can draw correct conclusions from among them. Yes,

00:40:45 --> 00:41:14

them Bill toner from esteem belt noon, Bell top Nevada is basically the water that gushes out first from a freshly dug well, so people are digging a well, and the water that gushes out first. That is what Nevada, okay, so it's about is to go deep into something and then derive something from there. You go deep into the ground, you dig, dig, dig, and then you get water from there.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:30

So Alladhina Yes, can be tuna woman home, meaning they would reflect on that situation on that piece of information. And then they would know, is it worth publicizing? Or not?

00:41:31 --> 00:41:39

Because just because something is happening or not happening, doesn't mean that the whole world needs to know about it.

00:41:40 --> 00:42:04

But these days, unfortunately, this concept doesn't even exist. Why? Because people are doing, you know, the most private of things in their lives. But they advertise everything. They post everything online. I'm having this milkshake. Wow, it cost me $2. Wow, it's cold. Wow. Chocolate favorite. So what? You just wasted two minutes of mine.

00:42:06 --> 00:42:51

Do you see what I mean? Is it really worth publicizing? I mean, if it's a really good deal, and if it's an awesome milkshake that you've never had, and you want your friends to have it, that's a different story. But just because you're eating at a restaurant, or you meet someone or you're somewhere, it doesn't mean that you have to post it online and waste everybody's life, waste 1000s and 1000s of human hours. Do you see what I mean? So every news, every piece of information does not have to be publicized. Why? Because it's relevant to some people, and it's irrelevant to others. And when every piece of information is publicized, then what happens? It spreads anxiety. It makes

00:42:51 --> 00:42:57

people anxious. It distracts people from what is more important,

00:42:59 --> 00:43:01

isn't it? Like for example,

00:43:02 --> 00:43:05

you know, if sitting in this classroom,

00:43:06 --> 00:43:28

we don't need to know how well these fans are operating doesn't have anything to do with us. Okay, it doesn't concern us. You know how thick this wall is? Or what those you know, sheets are for that drywall sitting over there. It doesn't concern you and me. But if we walk in what I call drywall in the masjid,

00:43:29 --> 00:43:35

there can do some renovations. Did you know all those doing renovations? They don't. They're gonna start construction.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:38

I mean, what has this got to do with you and I?

00:43:39 --> 00:43:58

What matters to us sitting in this classroom is our work. And if we start spreading this kind of news all the time. Did you know there's drywall sitting in the masjid and you go and tell your family at home and your friends at work? What tell me what benefit? Is it off to you or to your friends or to your family? What benefit?

00:43:59 --> 00:44:39

If it is something that concerns you, then those people who are responsible? Will they not tell you will not tell you, they will tell you? If there is renovations going on, then they'll tell you that Inshallah, although we're going to be doing some renovations, so if you would like to have some share in the height, then go ahead and donate for example, then you will be informed. I'm just giving you an example here. Don't take this as a real situation. I just happen to see that drywall. This is why I gave you that example. Okay, now based on this example, don't think that there's renovations going on. Okay.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:51

Laulima Hola, linea stone between a woman home, they would have known it that is really worth spreading or not. Because everybody's time everybody's life should not be wasted.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:59

In the telephone game. What happens? You know, one person says something to the other and by the time it gets to the 50th person, it's completely changed.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:15

It's completely distorted. So this is what happens when rumors spread. So and so it's coming. No, no, they're not coming. No, no, they have been banned from coming. Not that this happened. No, no, that happened. None of that happened. And do we not realize that whatever we say angels are writing

00:45:17 --> 00:45:26

in a summer Well, bizarro world Fuad kulula You can earn houmas Hola, male filamin Colin Illa de Hiraki Bonati

00:45:27 --> 00:46:09

so be careful. What are you saying? What are you spreading? You don't have to talk about everything. You don't have to know everything. You don't have to stay away from things that don't concern you. Me personally. Istanbul Mahi, Turku Mela, the irony of the beauty of a person's Islam is that he leaves What does not concern him. So if something's not your business, it's not your business. Stay out of it. Don't talk about it. Don't spread it. Do yourself a favor and do others a favor stay focused and let other people stay focused. When Hola. Hola. Hola. Here aleikum wa rahmatullah. And if it was not the favor of Allah and His mercy, then what would happen? Let the Virto Shavon kalila,

00:46:10 --> 00:46:26

then you would have followed the shaytaan all of you except a few. Everyone would have followed shape on because remember that it is of the tactics of shape on that he distracts people from what is more important, and he makes them busy and what is less important.

00:46:27 --> 00:47:14

It is of the tactics of shaytaan it is of his tricks, that he spreads lies among people. Why to create fear and anxiety and anticipations that people forget what they're doing. And they're overly concerned about things that don't even concern them. So if we are spreading rumors, if we are talking about things that don't concern us, then whose footsteps are we following shaytaan whose gods are we promoting? Shavon This is why be extremely careful. Allah says forgotten fee Sabina LA or messenger, be focused fight in the way of Allah Lautoka level Elana Hafsa You are not responsible except for yourself to colorful calf lanpher meaning you are only responsible for who for yourself.

00:47:14 --> 00:47:51

You tell other people to go ahead and do something but if they don't do it, not your problem. Worry about yourself because sometimes we want the whole world to do something when they don't do it. We get discouraged and we don't do it ourselves either. The Prophet salallahu Salam is too old for other fees to be the left lead to colorful in line of sack be focused, do what you're supposed to do. You're only responsible for yourself. We're heavily Momineen but don't ignore others. Encourage them, how they learn how to allow the ideal is to incite to motivate other people. So motivate them, motivate them because if you motivate them, they will be encouraged to do it. Then what will happen

00:47:51 --> 00:48:33

is Allah who hopefully, Allah will or your Cofer that he will restrain gaffer first same route, that he will restrain Buxa the mind the power the military might have who Alladhina Cafaro the disbelievers It is hoped that when you will motivate the believers and they will stand up defend themselves then what will happen the power of the enemy will break will law who shall do better son Allah is more severe in might don't fear the enemy because Allah is stronger. What I should do 10 killer and he is stronger in punishment than kill is from noon gaff Lam, nickel, exemplary punishment. So Allah is much stronger in giving punishment. So don't fear your enemy. Don't fear

00:48:33 --> 00:49:16

them because Allah is on your side. MAY Yes, Varsha Farah then has an app and when you encourage other people motivate them to do good. Then if somebody does good, because you motivated them, then you also get reward. This is just like whoever does chauffeur, what is shofar do request on behalf of an individual that they can't do something themselves so your request someone that please help them please listen to them, please do their work for them. So many Ishvara whoever intercedes, Shavon, Hassan and a good shofar, a good intercession, meaning for good cause. So for example, you go and request your friend, please forgive her. forgive your brother, forgive your sister. It's

00:49:16 --> 00:49:43

okay. Everybody makes mistakes. This is what a good cause Shiva Hassan, you go and request someone who has money, please help this individual financially. This is what Japan has done in a good cause. So whoever does this, Allah says, Yeah, Kula who nicelabel minha he will have a share of it, meaning he will have a share of that good of that reward. So for example, you request Someone, please help this individual financially.

00:49:44 --> 00:50:00

You're not helping them financially. Someone else is helping financially. Why because of your request. Then even though you didn't spend a penny, you get reward for it as well. You're cooler who knows evil minha on the other hand, well my yesh barsha fairer than say yiadom Whoever into

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

precedes a bad intercession. What does it mean by that? For a bad cause?

00:50:06 --> 00:50:08

So for example, someone's in trouble.

00:50:09 --> 00:50:50

Okay, someone's in trouble. And they've done something wrong. Yes, they are guilty and they are asking for forgiveness. They are apologizing. They are saying I take responsibility. I will fix it. But you go and tell individual who's upset with them. No, no, don't listen to them. Don't forget them. They're just liars. They don't deserve to be forgiven. This is what you fossa, right? You're not helping someone, you are harming them. Or if somebody is being oppressed, someone has been treated unjustly. Like, for example, you see that your brother is not fair with his wife. Shiva is what tell your brother. Yeah, you know what I saw her she took the car when you are not home.

00:50:51 --> 00:51:15

And you know what she was talking on the phone with so and so person so you better not let her use the phone or you better not leave the keys with her. This is what Chavasse Yeah. All right. A bad intercession for a bad cause. Or somebody is begging their mom that please let me go to this concert. And you feel so bad for them. So you go to the mother and you said please let your daughter go to the concert. So far. I say yeah.

00:51:16 --> 00:52:05

You for a bad cause. Allah says Yeah, could looky flamin her Cephalus what a mandatory share that you can not get away from. So he will have a burden off of it. Even though she's not going to the concert, even though she's not oppressing her spouse but still, she will have a burden of it. What can Allah Who And Allah is Ever Allah Cooley Shimokita over everything. He is a keeper. Milpitas from new letters off biota, who put is the sustenance that are living being needs in order to survive. So Mookie is one who provides that sustenance, one who looks after one who maintains, provides for protect safeguards, keeps, looks after the well being of everything. And this means

00:52:05 --> 00:52:33

that he is capable. This means that he's ever nourishing this means that he is protected. So what can allow our coalition mo PETA, you request something good for good cause Allah is keeping the record. Allah is going to reward you request for a bad cause. Allah is McKeith. He has the power. He is watching you, he knows what you're doing. So at the end of the day, we should be promoting what kind of works what kind of causes

00:52:35 --> 00:52:51

good cause something that will benefit other people, something that will benefit humanity at large. Because a dal Lu l Heidi Caffery li the Prophet sallallahu sallam said the one who leads other people to good, it's as though he has done it himself.

00:52:52 --> 00:53:33

So there are many things that we cannot do ourselves because we're not trained for it, we're not qualified for it. But can we not put our share in it by requesting we can the profit or loss and encourage the companions that do intercede on behalf of one another, a good kind of intercession and Allah will decide whatever the final decision is. And we see that are modeled alone who again and again, he would go to the profit or loss and when requested, please, you know, Commando Muslim women to wear hijab. Please do this please do that. And eventually what happened whatever Allah one had happened, right? But you can also have your share in the goodness by promoting it by requesting it

00:53:33 --> 00:53:44

and be careful whatever requests you're making, is it leading to something good, or is it leading to something bad because whatever we request for it's coming in our record, inshallah.

00:53:45 --> 00:53:46
