bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim

00:00:06 --> 00:00:52

les number 75 Surah ADA I in number 83 to 93. What either Samir uma en de la isla Rasool E. And when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger, the immediate reference is to the Christians because they were being mentioned at the end of the previous I praised for their humility, for they're not being arrogant. Allah says when these people, those who are truly humble and truly humble, not just to people, but to Allah, What's the proof of that, that they're truly humbled to Allah, that when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger, meaning when they hear the Quran, then what happens? That unit whom you will see their eyes to feel Domina Dunmurry overflowing

00:00:52 --> 00:01:00

with tears. It's as though their tears cannot stay back. They are filled with emotion.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:46

And immediately they start crying. They cannot keep their tears controlled. Their eyes are overflowing with tears Duffield Domina demaree to feel boy is from fair yet but firmly a field is when something fills up and begins to overflow. So for example, there may be a pool, it's filled with water and then it begins to overflow. We have learned about this word earlier, some field looming, Hazel, a Falco nurse then proceed from where the people have proceeded meaning at hedge that as the people are proceeding and the word, a field who has been used because as the people are moving at hedge, it's literally as though you know water is coming because it's unstoppable and it's

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47


00:01:48 --> 00:02:07

So, you see, the eyes of these people are just overflowing with tears. Why are they crying? Why are they so emotional? Because mimma are for mental health, because of what they have recognized of the truth. They hear the Quran, they realize its truthfulness and they cannot help but cry

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

and your coluna they say, Robin

00:02:12 --> 00:02:46

or our Lord, we have believed we heard the Quran we recognize the truth and we believe fuck Toobin. Mr Ushahidi sir, write us register us among the witnesses * now from kita, which is to write so write our name in the list of who share headin shadiness deplore enough, share hid, Sheen has done and what the shahada mean, to bear witness to testify. I'm really sorry. But if you do not want to pay attention in class, you're more than welcome to leave.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:57

Because I don't want somebody to be sitting right in front of me. And I mean, everybody who's in this class, and be distracting, don't disturb the rest of the class.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:09

And if you're here, then be attentive. And that means that your hands should have your pen and you should be looking at the text of the Quran, and you should be writing.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:50

So what either Samir OMA own Zita Illa Rasul eToro, or Yuna Han to field Amina dem or even more autofunnel Help your gewoon or burner. In fact, tupuna Marcia, he didn't write our name register us among who? Those who bear witness now who are these people who bear witness who testify testify to what testify to the truthfulness of whatever Allah has revealed. Because when a person says the Quran is true, what is he testify that this is from Allah, that Allah has spoken, the truth that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is true. So Shahid Deen primarily refers to which group of people,

00:03:51 --> 00:04:27

the Companions, the Sahaba, because they when they saw the truth, they accepted it when they accepted it that itself is a testimony of the truthfulness of the Quran of the Messenger of Islam. So they say Faulkner, Marcia, he didn't we want to be one of them. We want to be a part of this amazing group of people. We want to be like them. Even if there are centuries between us hundreds and hundreds of years between us big difference of time big difference of culture. Big difference of age, gender, still, who we want to be off that group. Fuck don't know, Marcia, hey, Dean.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:59

Now, the immediate references I mentioned to you earlier is to the Christians, so he had been debate he said that these verses were revealed about a delegation of Christians who had come from Abyssinia, so a delegation of ever senior who had been sent by the Negus, the Abyssinian King, and they had come to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, when they came to Medina, they met him the prophets of Allah, this and recited the Quran to them. And as he recited those people were weeping they were

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

Write profusely.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:04

It was as if they were awestruck.

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

And they couldn't help but cry. Why? Because they recognize the truth. So they accepted Islam, and they returned to the Joshy, they went back to their home country and informed their king, about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:25

Now, the fact is that the Quran, it affects the heart of the listener,

00:05:26 --> 00:05:32

which is why when you listen to the Quran, you don't just hear it in your ears, you feel it in your heart,

00:05:33 --> 00:05:53

you know, sometimes you feel your heartbeat going faster, you feel your pulse, you know, there is a change in it. Why? Because the Quran is not for the ear, and for the eyes, and for the mind only, it's for the heart, because that is the center of change. That is where the change comes from.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:01

Where the heart comes alive, that is when a person comes alive, when the heart becomes dead, that's when the person also dies.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:24

And we might feel that when the Quran is being recited to someone, when someone is being told, they're not interested at all, but from the people of Allah, there are many who are affected by the Quran sooner or later, because the Quran, it affects the heart.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:29

So these people, they heard the Quran for the very, very first time.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:37

And what is it that caused them to be affected so much? It was because they were listening attentively.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:43

And if we don't even listen attentively, then how can we be affected?

00:06:44 --> 00:07:09

Because we complain a lot that Oh, doesn't move me. Oh, my heart is still not changed. I still don't get it. I'm still not interested. I still don't have any fear Love of Allah. Why? We discussed earlier that the problem is not with the Quran. The problem was with who the person are, am I really seeking? Am I really interested? Am I attentive, because it's not possible that a person is seeking and Allah does not give him

00:07:10 --> 00:07:20

it's not possible that a person wants to improve, wants to change wants to become better. And Allah doesn't show him the way Allah will show him provided that we are sincere.

00:07:22 --> 00:07:31

So imagine these people, they came all the way from Avicennia. To see the Prophet salallahu Salam, they heard the Quran once and they were moved to tears.

00:07:32 --> 00:07:37

They accepted immediately. They changed immediately. They didn't wait.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:54

And why is it that they wept? Because they recognize the truth. They were so moved. They recognize the truth. And the tears just kept falling and rolling down uncontrollably. When is it that you cry? Generally, when you're really sad?

00:07:55 --> 00:08:28

When you feel oh, I'm so lonely. My mom's not here. My dad's not here. My sister is somewhere else. Or when we have a reason to be sad. Like, I failed my test. I still don't have a job. I still have so much debt to pay off. Or I'm still not married. These things make us cry. Or I'm too short. I'm too tall. I only bought three pairs of clothes this year. I'm so poor. I'm so tired, so overwhelmed. So under appreciated. These things make us cry, sadness. What else makes a person cry?

00:08:29 --> 00:08:30


00:08:31 --> 00:08:36

Sometimes people also cry because of extreme joy. When

00:08:37 --> 00:08:41

in that imagine when there's something you desperately wanted.

00:08:42 --> 00:09:12

And then you find it, you get it. When you find it, you will cry. If there is a person who has a huge debt to pay off, and then somebody gives them a monetary gift, you think they will just say thank you with a smile on their face. No, they will cry. They won't be able to hold their tears back because they are so happy. So just like that when these people they saw the Messenger whom they were awaiting.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:24

They found the guidance which they were seeking. They found the answers which they were searching for. They saw the truth that the desperately desired what happened? They wept.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:32

They wept uncontrollably to feel them in a temporary they found it they attained it so they cried

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

and here we need to reflect as well. That

00:09:37 --> 00:09:59

these people when they recognize the truth first of all, they didn't delay in accepting it. Immediately they said Rob burner, Amana or our Lord we have believed fucked up now, Marcia hidden and the fact is that such people exist today as well. That the Quran is recited to them. They're told of what is in the Quran and

00:10:00 --> 00:10:37

Immediately they say yes, this is the truth. This is something that I wanted all my life. Thank you for telling me thank you for showing me and they accept immediately. There are many people who find out just a little bit about Islam. And immediately they accept, they haven't even read the Quran cover to cover, they probably don't even know the names of the companions, except for just two or three of them. By that point, they probably don't know what the word fic means. They probably don't even know there is a word such as Shakira, they probably don't even know there is a word search record. But they have just come across the basic message of Islam, they recognize the truth and they

00:10:37 --> 00:10:44

accept immediately they do not delay. So we need to question ourselves here. What am I waiting for?

00:10:45 --> 00:10:50

That when I hear something in the Quran, then why don't I do it? What am I waiting for?

00:10:51 --> 00:10:55

Do I do it? Or do I delay? Or do I say, not for me?

00:10:57 --> 00:11:08

And also, that there are people who are willing to listen to the Quran? But are we willing to recite to them? Are we willing to tell them? Are we willing to share the message with them?

00:11:09 --> 00:11:27

Think about it. Haven't heard of so many amazing convert stories, which were so impressed by and we watched their videos on YouTube. And we're like, Yeah, wow, how nice see Islam as the best Islam is the truth. But then we don't do the same thing in our lives. There are people around us, and they don't even know that we study the Quran.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

They have no idea.

00:11:31 --> 00:12:07

People who are not Muslim, or people who may even be Muslim, but we don't share this message with them. We don't tell them what we have what we're learning. So be willing to recite the Quran to others. And if there's nothing else that we can do this, give them a CD of the recitation of the Quran. Because with some people, it's difficult to speak to them. Just give them a CD or the recitation of the Quran because when they will hear it, they will wonder what it is they will wonder what it means and inshallah they're seeking the truth, they will find out what it is and inshallah Allah will guide them.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:14

Also, we see over here, that it is good to cry when listening to the Quran. Why?

00:12:16 --> 00:12:59

Because it softens the heart, it melts the heart it is what moves the heart and causes the heart to change. But don't force yourself in the sense that don't fake cry, it should be real, true, honest, genuine crying, which is out of the softness of the heart which is out of the fear of Allah subhanaw taala which is out of you know, really paying attention to the words of ALLAH and feeling them then it is that a person will cry. They say a woman Anna, and what is with us meaning why shouldn't we learn up meno Billahi that we don't believe in Allah? Why should we not believe in Allah wa jal, and I'm in and help and what has come to us of the truth? Why should we believe in Allah and the truth

00:12:59 --> 00:13:28

that has come to us? When not tomorrow while we hold while we wish? A you do Helena Robina that our Lord will enter a smile cominciare Hain with the righteous people. Meeting our hope in life, our wish in life is that Allah joins us with the group of the righteous people with the Prophets meeting. He joins us with who with the righteous in paradise. That's where we want to go. So why should we not believe in the truth once we have discovered it?

00:13:29 --> 00:14:22

So if a person wants to go to Jannah, if a person wants to be with the righteous, then he has to accept the truth and follow it. And if he doesn't accept it, that means he doesn't want to be in paradise. He doesn't want to be with the righteous for Atharva, whom Allah will be mal Kalu. So Allah rewarded them because of what they said. Because of their statement. Allah subhanaw taala rewarded them. Generally, what do we learn that words alone are not enough? action is necessary, but what do we see here that Allah is rewarding them just for their words? Why? Because these words were very honest. Words what a person says, what do they reflect your heart, whatever is in your heart,

00:14:22 --> 00:14:25

your words show you speak it out.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:32

And your words, basically, they reflect your inner feelings.

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

So what they said, is something that they truly felt when their hearts were full of gratitude and submissiveness. That's what was expressed verbally. And when it was expressed verbally, Allah subhanaw taala accepted that even though they had not prayed one Salah yet they had not learned the laws of the deen yet, but still, their extreme gratitude and submissive

00:15:00 --> 00:15:25

Goodness brought them such great reward from Allah subhanaw taala for a Saba hula hula Bhima Kalu their words were so genuine. What did Allah subhanaw taala reward them with Jannette in gardens 30 Min Datil and hob underneath which rivers flow holiday in a fee her abiding there eternally with Erica Jezza on worsening and that is the reward of all those who do arson.

00:15:26 --> 00:15:31

This is the reward of those who are sensitive this means what these people said what they did was,

00:15:32 --> 00:15:37

how was it your son? What is their son, your son? In the Hadith we learn

00:15:38 --> 00:16:07

that Underwood Allah when Jabril asked the prophets of Allah azza wa jal airson, the prophets of Allah descendant replied, and caribou the Allahu uneca da who that you worship Allah as though you see him? What does it mean by this, that you worship Allah as though you see that when someone is present before you and you see them, then do your actions change? When you're driving as though you're seeing a police officer? How will you drive

00:16:08 --> 00:16:58

perfectly as if you are trying to pass your driver's test? And if you drive with the feeling that oh, there is no police officer around? And how will you drive very differently. So this realization that I see someone or somebody who's watching me, this completely changes your actions, you become more conscious and alert, you become more careful. You pay attention to every detail, every single detail. Generally, you don't care whether you're driving at 60 or 80. But as soon as you realize, oh, there's a police officer here, then you become so careful, the needle has to be exactly on 60 better, even if it's lower, you bring perfection to your actions. And when this realization is not

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

there, then there is no perfection.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:16

So this is what your son is. Now what they said, with regard to the verses of Allah, how they reacted, that they started crying, and they immediately accepted. It was as though they were seeing Allah.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:55

Not that they were literally because nobody can see Allah in this world. You can only see Allah inshallah and Jana in the hereafter. But the way they obeyed the way they submitted the way they whacked, it was as though they could see Allah. So this is a reward of who mercy Nene, those who listen attentively, who cry humbly who accept submissively where that leakages are overseen. On the other hand, well ladina cafardo Those who disbelieve what Canada will be i Athena and deny our vs. Would I guess how would your heme those are the companions of the Blaze?

00:17:56 --> 00:18:12

What is burned in the fire? Garbage, something that's useless cannot even be recycled. It's just waste. So when a person disbelieves and rejects the truth despite recognizing it seeing it that means nothing but the waste of this world

00:18:14 --> 00:18:17

and he only deserves to be in the greatest fire ever.

00:18:18 --> 00:18:19


00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

Holly Dean

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

Want to see me one levena CAFO welcome the movie Tina

00:20:12 --> 00:20:15


00:20:17 --> 00:20:50

Yeah, you had ladina Ave Oh you have believed loud to her remota Yeva tema Hello hola hola calm do not prohibit the good things which Allah has made lawful to you led to her remove from haram meaning do not make haram what should you not make haram? But you bet the good things floral of the Yuba, which good things, all good things. Know those good things which man a handle Allahu La calm, which Allah has made permissible for you.

00:20:51 --> 00:21:38

Because there may be certain good things but they're not halal for you, such as somebody else's tofu salad. It's not yours, somebody else's until they give it to you or sell it to you. You can't have it. You can't say Oh, this is something so good that Allah has made so I'm just gonna have it. No, you can't do that. Water. A water bottle belongs to somebody else. You go to Subway, there's a refrigerator on the side. Nobody's looking. And it's like, yeah, I can take it play, you play you play even. You can have it and just sneak out. This is not Hello, it may be playing it but it's not halal. So those things which are to YouTube and Allah has made permissible for you. Allah says don't

00:21:38 --> 00:21:57

make them haram on yourself, meaning have them, enjoy them, use them, eat them, wear them. Allah has created these things for you for your benefit for your enjoyment, and then not just that he made them permissible for you in the law, so use it.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:42

Don't make it hard on yourself. And at the same time, wala Tirtha do and do not transgress meaning do not transgress the limits of enjoyment. That all day you're only concerned about preparing the best food all week. You're only concerned about wearing the best clothes. No later to do. You should be moderate in the law. halaya hibel Murthy Indeed, Allah does not like those people who transgress. So we see that two prohibitions are given over here, la to her Remo and La Tarta do, don't make haram and don't transgress. Making something haram would mean depriving yourself of it completely. transgressing would mean that you use it, eat it so much so that you forget everything else, it

00:22:42 --> 00:22:46

becomes a focus of your life, you'd go to the extent of a suave.

00:22:47 --> 00:23:18

So Allah says no stay in between because the majority of the people they go to these two extremes. The moment a person becomes a little careful about their Deen, then they are just concerned about what is halal and what is halal. And every kind of food they make haram on themselves. I'm not saying that don't check the ingredients. Always check the ingredients. But don't say oh haram haram haram haram. I remember when I came here I was told everything is haram except for just this this and this. I was like what?

00:23:19 --> 00:24:03

Before I knew everything was Halal except for this, this and this and how all of a sudden everything is haram except for this, this and this. Do you believe the same thing? Have you been brought up the same way over here? I pity you if you've been raised like that, because some people are literally raised like that. Everything is haram except for this, this and this. And in the deen we learned it's the exact opposite. But anyway, you should be aware of what is permissible and what is not permissible, what ingredients are halal and what are not halal. You should be aware. But what is permissible don't make that unlawful upon yourself. What is allowed. Don't deprive yourself from it.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:11

Like for example, you could go to a restaurant where Okay, there may even be haram food over there.

00:24:12 --> 00:24:41

But there's also halal food over there. And if they're saying that we will change our gloves, we will use a new knife we will make sure that when we place your food in the oven or whatever there is a clean liner under it. And that's something that they practice for everything anyway. Then why should you deprive yourself of that food? You're hungry and you're just buying a bag of chips and that's what you're going to eat? There is halal food. Why should you deprive yourself of it?

00:24:42 --> 00:24:59

I'm not saying go and eat haram not at all Haram is haram we're not allowed to make that halal for ourselves. But what is halal don't make it home either. Because Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, all men have llamas Zenit Allah He ledee a hadith everybody. What were you

00:25:00 --> 00:25:31

Let me not just say who has forbidden the adornment, the beauty of Allah which He has produced for His servants and the good lawful things of provision these things Allah has created for you, he has produced for you, so don't deprive yourself from it. Likewise, there may be some things which are not allowed all the time, which may not be suitable all the time, but sometimes there are suitable for example, this question I get so often is nail polish, halal or haram?

00:25:32 --> 00:26:00

You tell me it's halal, why there's nothing haram about it? Well, you can say that in certain situations, it's not appropriate so you should avoid it. And at certain times you should not be wearing it. Like when you're doing will do when you're taking whistle you should not be wearing your nail polish because otherwise your nails will not get wet. And your will do will be incomplete. Likewise, if you're going to school before men and you're wearing bright red nail polish, please come on, be careful over there.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:22

So it's not a matter of Halal haram. It's a matter of using your apple a little bit. That is it appropriate or not. But we say haram don't wear it. We want the religion to be black and white. And not just religion, our lives to be black and white. So it's not like that.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:38

You have to use your mind as well. So led to her remove by yerba tema, 100 Allahu La calm. Don't make it hard on yourself. Likewise, there may be certain foods which are at the hip, and you don't like it. But it doesn't mean you make it haram on yourself.

00:26:39 --> 00:27:18

Because some women from some cultures, they say, Oh, I don't eat fish. I just don't eat it. I just don't need it. I don't eat fish. Why? I never eat it. Why? I just don't like it. I just don't like the smell of it. And somebody's telling you no, there is no smell. It's fresh. It's made really well. Just try not I don't know, I don't know. I don't refuse, refuse, refuse. Good things are being prepared and brought to you. And you don't even take a little bit of it ever, ever. In a one is that it's not good. Like once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he refused to eat the meat of a kind of desert lizard. And the people asked if it was halal or haram. He said No, it's okay. It's halal, but

00:27:18 --> 00:27:59

he didn't like to eat it. Why? Because it's kind of a lizard. And you might say obviously, it's halal, but it's not necessarily a play you, okay? I mean, the skin is hard. And it's weird. And just this feeling of you know that it's a lizard. You don't want to have it. So it may not be for you. But it's hella, but something is halal. And for you. And still you deprive yourself of it. We take the foods that are culturally familiar to us, for example, I'm from Pakistan. So what my family what we do is, we eat the Desi food and like the roti and the silence and everything. But when we comes to was there from other cultures, we kind of stay away from it. So when this becomes a habit, and

00:27:59 --> 00:28:40

there's this mindset, that no these foods are not good for us. So even if it's fruits, we stay away from them, even though they're halal, and they just because we are unfamiliar, or just because we haven't ever had it, we think that it's not good. And we just stay away from it. I mean, yes, you are a person who has certain, like certain dislikes. And yes, we respect that. But you should also respect what Allah has made lawful and what he has made unlawful. Likewise, there may be certain foods, there is a reason for you to avoid, whether it's because of health reasons, or whatever, there is a reason for it. So there's no harm, but to literally treat it like harmful that a person

00:28:40 --> 00:28:48

doesn't even touch it and makes a face when looking at it. Like you What is this passing weird comments about it? This is something that's inappropriate.

00:28:50 --> 00:28:54

Like, for example, the person says I'm vegetarian. So I don't eat meat at all.

00:28:55 --> 00:29:31

Being a vegetarian, like, for example, if it's because of health reason, a person has serious heart problems, right? They have serious weight issues, cholesterol issues, and because of that, they say, Okay, fine. I'm just going to avoid meat completely. Because I can't help myself when I start eating meats, I'm just going to avoid it completely. So in that situation, what should be done, okay, that person avoids it. But he shouldn't deprive himself completely and shouldn't start to think that this is haram food. Because some people what they do is that if they have certain restrictions, they impose those restrictions on the rest of the family as well. This should not be done, or they start

00:29:31 --> 00:29:33

thinking that this food is not good.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:59

Like for example, one person in your family may be seriously allergic to nuts, but that doesn't mean that you think nuts are bad. They're haram. No, they're not home. They're completely halal. The question is, if there is haram food being served at a restaurant where you go like for example, there's alcohol being served, then in that case, do you eat there or not? I mean, we learned very clearly that the the table where alcohol is being served

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

When alcohol is being consumed by people, you should not be there. So, I know some people they are okay with it. They say that well, there are people drinking on other tables not in mind. So it's okay, but how can you be in that same atmosphere? How can you even see because this is something that's really one God, that's wrong haram. So avoided to the best of your ability, what you can do is take the food and go out or avoid those places completely. I mean, there's so many so many Halal options. One is that you can't avoid it at all like you're in a plane and people are drinking alcohol at the same time. Well, you don't have an option there. But you have an option between going

00:30:39 --> 00:30:42

to one restaurant and the other so avoid it.

00:30:44 --> 00:31:29

So let us know how to remove but you bet him or her Hello Hola Hola, como la Tarta do and do not transgress the limits meaning when Allah said something is haram don't make that halal. Because some people say, Well, you should make things haram. So everything's halal. No, everything is not halal. What is haram? You cannot make that into Halal either. And when you're using the halal enter you don't do a Seraph. Allah says Kulu wash LeBeau wala to still eat and drink and do not be extravagant, do not be extravagant and wasteful. Because play you but it doesn't just refer to food also clothing. So for example, clothing, yes, good clothing, you should wear fine clothing you

00:31:29 --> 00:31:36

should wear but don't do Islaam that your each outfit comes out to like $200 $300 I mean, that becomes a Seraph,

00:31:38 --> 00:32:03

your average outfit that you wear to somebody's house, it's up to $100 I remember when I went to Pakistan, one of the things that I really wanted to do was get some clothes for some family members and friends over here and also for myself. But every time I would go to buy clothes, and I would see beggars, children who aren't even wearing sweaters and that extreme cold, I could not buy anything I just couldn't

00:32:05 --> 00:32:12

because you're outside the store and there are people begging for five rupees so that they can buy some food and you go inside

00:32:13 --> 00:32:39

and one outfit could be close to $100 $200 $100 is nothing in fact $200 How can you do that this is rough. But unfortunately the way we buy the way we use and the way we keep buying more and more and if somebody is repeated and an occasion like they're wearing the same clothes they wore at another occasion then we think oh look at them

00:32:40 --> 00:32:44

we have in our culture you cannot repeat the same by the way this is not just in your culture.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:49

Song was everywhere right Subhanallah and then

00:32:50 --> 00:33:25

it was a wedding in the one month twice and then you should dress was a ticket almost 200 150 And I said it's so expensive. My daughter she told me mommy don't get another one because you give in that hour. So we were the same one so they can learn from you. So from the library the same day my talk but 100 So when I started do not even transgress in hola hola. You have been martyred in why? Even if you have lots of money, still not transgress still not do Islam. Why? Because Allah doesn't like such people who do Israel

00:33:26 --> 00:33:34

who are just concerned about well how they look and what people think of them and they have no concern about people who are suffering from extreme poverty.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:53

Then Allah says welcome lumen Manasa Kakuma Allah Who and each of that which Allah has provided to you, as long as it fulfills two conditions what Hello Alan, it is halal and the human it is also good halal, how into ways that the food in itself is halal.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:18

It's not haram like for example, porque is haram. So the food itself has to be halal. And secondly, it has to be earned properly as well. So eat of that which is halal. And it is also for you what is actually good for you. It's beneficial, it's not harmful. You're not just eating for mere pleasure, but you're eating so that food actually benefits you.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:50

Just the other day somebody was asking me that this muffin that I'm eating, it's too hard and I'm afraid that if I eat it, I'm gonna get a stomachache. And we're like, okay, get rid of it. They're like, No, I don't think I got my money out of it. You know, I bought it and I want to make sure I've used every single cent I spent on it. So I'm like, Okay, tell me, is it worth the stomachache? We mean, would you give 25 cents for a stomachache? Is a stomach ache worth 25 cents? It's not so it's not for you, so don't eat it.

00:34:51 --> 00:34:59

Our problem is generally that we first of all pour too much food. Right? Like when we go to a wedding or something because we have this

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

Fear, oh, the food is going to finish. And we forget that food for one is enough for two.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:18

So when there's so many people eating from somewhere in sha Allah, Allah will place Baraka. So we have this fear that if I don't take everything now, next time I come, all the chicken will be gone, all the salad will be gone just for whatever I can.

00:35:19 --> 00:35:22

And then as we're trying to eat it, we can't finish it, and then we just throw it.

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

Another problem that we suffer from is that we don't know how to cook properly. And we experiment a lot. Instead of learning from people, we experiment things. And when the food turns out to be a disaster, then we're like, oh, I have to finish it.

00:35:36 --> 00:36:02

Then we try to eat that food, which gives us a stomachache, and then we become sick. And we suffer. So what's the solution? Have trust in Allah? He feeds you. So don't think you have to fill up your plate. Take a little bit, eat that. If you need some more, go get some more and if you don't get some more, doesn't matter go home at Hamdulillah you have plenty of food there. That's not possible. Stop at Tim Hortons on the way

00:36:04 --> 00:36:45

whatever food you are meant to eat is written for you. It is written for you so don't have this fear that if I don't take everything now it's gonna run out and I won't have any food left. No, have to work Hola. Hola. Hola. And take only as much as you think you can eat. So what could have been Matos aka como la Khaled Anta Yeva What duckula hala the unknown behemoth Menon And fear Allah the one whom you believe in. Fear Allah concerning the matter of eating concerning the matter of wearing concerning the matter of speaking concerning the matter of looking of listening everything, because when it comes to the matter of Halal haram eating, we are so careful. People are so careful. They'll

00:36:45 --> 00:37:08

stand in the grocery store, reading the list of ingredients, researching online, this new ingredient is it okay or not asking a fatwa attending classes? And mashallah, very good. Very, very good that you're concerned about what you eat. People go to a restaurant which has Halal outside and they go in and say halal food, right? Halal meat, right.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:26

And people go to great lengths to ensure that the food that they're eating is halal. And this is why because of the fear of Allah because we say we fear Allah, this is why we have to be very careful. But you need to be fearful of Allah in the matter of eating in the matter of looking on. So

00:37:28 --> 00:37:30

in a matter of listening also,

00:37:31 --> 00:37:34

every time you listen to music, tell yourself Would you put pork in your mouth?

00:37:36 --> 00:37:41

We say well with just one song. Okay, just one bite. One sandwich?

00:37:42 --> 00:37:43

Would you

00:37:44 --> 00:37:51

as we're looking at something that is not suitable for looking at, ask yourself, would you have a glass of wine instead?

00:37:53 --> 00:38:04

Why not? It's not halal. Well, this is not halal to look at either. This is not halal to listen to either. We're so concerned about eating,

00:38:05 --> 00:38:22

that we neglect other things. Allah says what duckula Fear Allah in every matter with regards to your entire body under the anti behemoth maneuver, the one in whom you believe and if you're true in your faith to Allah than fear him with respect to your entire life.

00:38:24 --> 00:38:45

Those of you who work Tell me, do you like to work nine to five or in the evenings? Or is there a time ever when you feel I wish I didn't have to work I wish I could just be at home right now. Just one hour. I wish I could leave early. I wish I could come late. I wish I could take a day off and still be paid. Do you ever get these feelings all day, every day.

00:38:46 --> 00:39:22

So when you're wasting food, tell yourself this is half an hour that I'm throwing away. This is 15 minutes of my life that I'm throwing away when we're wasting the resources that Allah has provided us let's look at it in terms of our precious time our precious energy our precious efforts, that is what we are throwing away and in fact it's more than that because it's not just a product of our work it's a product of many other people's work as well right? So that is what we are throwing away so we have to answer Allah subhanaw taala as well right?

00:39:23 --> 00:39:25

So what the Allah fear Allah

00:39:26 --> 00:39:27


00:39:29 --> 00:39:30


00:39:31 --> 00:39:32

you human

00:39:34 --> 00:39:35

to Henry move on.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:40

Long long hola como

00:39:42 --> 00:39:45

in long hola your

00:39:46 --> 00:39:52

daddy will call home in Como long.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:54

Point E

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

double law 122

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


00:40:06 --> 00:40:45

lay you ask you to come Allah Who beloved with he a Manickam Allah will not hold you accountable for what is meaningless in your oats. Love lamb Greenwell is what a person says without thinking. So, without thinking if a person swears an oath, like for example, a person has a habit of swearing. So he says, Yeah, well, like I went well. Lahiya saw this person will lie, your mom's calling you and your mom's not actually calling you. And accidentally a person says Wallah, he will law he because it's their habit. So Allah says it's okay. He's not going to hold you accountable for the odds that you swear unintentionally.

00:40:46 --> 00:41:36

And this is out of His mercy and tolerance that he forgives this that he overlooks this, when I can, but remember that you are a locum he will hold you accountable for what Bheema are optimal Amen. For that which you intended of oats are Koto, you resolved or in cough done, which is to tie a knot. So, what you tie it meaning you firmly resolved off What have l amen, amen floor enough Yameen meaning the oath. So the order that you intend. So for example, you say, well, Allah He, I will be here tomorrow, by Allah, I will never speak again, by Allah, I will never yell at my kids again. So you say this deliberately and consciously by Allah, I will not lie to my parents again, by Allah, I will

00:41:36 --> 00:42:21

not stay awake after 11pm Every night because if I do so I cannot get a professor. So you make an oath, and you make it consciously deliberately. So if you go against it, if you break it, that Allah says he will hold you accountable, meaning that that is a sin, than that is a sin, and you have to do something about it. So if a person makes an oath, swears an oath, and then he breaks it. Then Allah says, fucka follow the will. So it's the follow. What is Kafala? expiation it's basically from Kafka and Kafka what does it mean? A setter what doctor yet to cover to conceal something. So the farmer expiation what does it do? It conceals the effect of the sin. So something wrong you did

00:42:21 --> 00:42:44

kuthodaw will concede its effect meaning then that sin will not harm you. For example, in Hadith, we learn that spitting in the masjid is a healthy, it is a sin with the flu ha kuthodaw to her uncovering it, and this would be in the case where the ground is unfinished, so it's sand. So covering that burying it is it's expiation.

00:42:45 --> 00:42:53

So dislike that throwing garbage in the masjid that is wrong. And picking it up and getting rid of it that is it's a follow.

00:42:54 --> 00:43:11

So, if a person has sworn an oath, and then he broke it, then he has to give the expiration what is that three options are giving over here? Which ones first of all, it thrombo I shall Altima second feeding den needy people must second floor love. Miskin

00:43:12 --> 00:43:55

what kind of food men from Oh sadly, average mandatory Munna, Alico, what you feed your families with our service from wild Simba and WhatsApp is in the middle. So the food that you eat yourselves, you feed your families, on average, that kind of food of the same value, you will give to how many people 10 needy people. So it could be one meal per needy person. So 10 needy persons are given one meal each. Or it could also be 10 meals that are provided to, let's say, to needy people over the course of five days or whatever. Okay, but the point is to give 10 meals to who needy.

00:43:56 --> 00:44:17

But what if a person cannot do that? So then what does he do? He's like, I have to give the Kafala. The other option is, Oh, guess what? To whom? Or clothing them? Okay, I've seen well guess what is clothing that a person gives to another? So you have to close? Who 10 needy people, what kind of clothes, which are called clothes.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:38

And the clothes that you generally wear yourself. You can't just take a curtain and say, Oh, this word? No, they're no clothes. You have to give proper clothes. Likewise, you have to give clothes that a person can actually wear. I mean, if you're giving a Muslim miskeen woman, a tank top and shorts, I'm sorry, she's not going to be able to wear them. That's not clothing.

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

You have to give her clothing that she can actually wear. Likewise, if you're giving winter jacket to someone who lives in the Emirates where it is extremely hot except for just a few days in the year then that's not really Kiswa. Okay, you have to give clothing that a person can actually wear so that's the second option. What if a person cannot do that either? Third option is

00:45:00 --> 00:45:02

alter Hironaka freeing a slave.

00:45:03 --> 00:45:29

But what if a person doesn't have the ability to do any of these? He doesn't have the money he cannot afford. Then in that case, there's another option given. So basically you have three choices. These three choices you can't do any. Then in that case, firstly I'm with an Earth 30 A year and from Allah Myojin who cannot find, then he should fast for how many days, three days.

00:45:30 --> 00:46:01

Allah says Valley, Kaka Furla, to a Manickam. That is the Kafala expiation for your oats which thought that you have sworn deliberately and then broken. He swore you would do something or you won't do something and then you went against your word. You use the name of Allah by Allah, I make God as my witness that I will do this and you go against it. So that is Kafala for your Amen either. Hello often, when you have sworn, Allah says Why follow a man calm and guard your olds

00:46:02 --> 00:46:18

do a follow up? What does it mean by this guard your odds that first of all, don't start swearing on every little thing. Because some people have a habit of Allahu Allahu Allah He every little thing. So don't use the name of Allah and every little thing. Be careful.

00:46:19 --> 00:46:28

So first of all, be careful about swearing that don't belittle this. And secondly, if you've made an oath, then stick to it.

00:46:29 --> 00:47:08

Because if a person is making an oath, and thinking that oh, doesn't matter, I'll break it later and give Kafala then this is not half of a man this is basically misusing the law of Allah. So why follow a man or come? Because Alika you obey you know Hola Hola, como de Deus? Does Allah clarify to you his versus His commands that are local touch Corona that you're grateful? Why is grateful mentioned over here, because if a person has sworn an oath, and for some reason he has to break it, he's in guilt. So Allah subhanaw taala takes us out of that guilt gives us another option. What does that give Kafala and get out of guilt, repent to Allah and seek forgiveness and give Kafala remember

00:47:08 --> 00:47:18

that there are three kinds of oats one is love, as mentioned earlier in the ayah. And what is that useless meaningless doesn't carry any weight because a person doesn't intend it.

00:47:19 --> 00:48:02

The second kind of authors monoket, which is intentional, that a person intends he deliberately made it use the name of Allah, he meant to promise honestly, but what happened for some reason or the other, he had to break it. Like for example, a person says, By Allah, I will not miss any class now, by Allah, I will not miss any class now. And then what happens when they you are sick and you're not able to come? So here you are, with a fever of 104 degrees and trying to get to class No, don't put yourself in that hardship. rake your old go feed 10 needy people, or cloth or needy people and give Kafala and that's it. You don't have to observe that oath anymore.

00:48:03 --> 00:48:04

It's done. Now.

00:48:05 --> 00:48:46

The third kind of oath is law mousse, which literally means engulfing, which is a false oath, that a person swears an oath, by Allah. I will not miss any class from now on. And they're saying this why just to satisfy the other person just to satisfy the other person. Now this is a major sin, a major sin, or a person says to someone, please let me take this home today by Allah tomorrow, I will pay you for this. And when he's making that oath, he has no intention of fulfilling it.

00:48:47 --> 00:48:54

This is what was a moose and this is a major sin. So when a person will go against it does he have to pick a father?

00:48:55 --> 00:49:04

This is not to do with Kafala Kafala is for who the one who honestly intended to do something, and he wasn't able to

00:49:05 --> 00:49:15

Kafala is for that person. For the person who commits a major sin like this. He's not giving a father he has to do Toba. The crime is far more serious. It's a major sin.

00:49:17 --> 00:49:36

So we have to be very careful. Use the name of Allah very carefully, very carefully, not at every little thing when you do so the minute and keep to it and fulfill it. And if you're not able to then give the Kafala the option that Allah subhanaw taala has given and by the way, who can we swear oaths by?

00:49:38 --> 00:49:57

Only Allah and His attributes, only Allah and His attributes. You cannot swear an oath by the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you cannot swear an oath by your mother. You cannot swear an oath by anything, nothing at all, only who Allah and His attributes.

00:49:58 --> 00:49:59

So be very careful.

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

about this because the prophets are lonesome said man Khalifa belaid Allah He forgot Ashoka that whoever swears an oath by other than Allah that He has committed shit

00:50:10 --> 00:50:15

because when you swear an oath basically you're saying I make Allah a witness that I will do this or I will not do it

00:50:17 --> 00:50:18


00:50:22 --> 00:50:27

long will be love we fee money for more

00:50:28 --> 00:50:29

you have

00:50:31 --> 00:50:31


00:50:34 --> 00:50:35

sucker for

00:50:37 --> 00:50:46

it know more about de missa keen I mean Oh sampling to a boring Munna. LUCAM kiss want to

00:50:47 --> 00:50:48

work order

00:50:52 --> 00:50:52

that he

00:50:55 --> 00:50:55


00:50:57 --> 00:51:02

uh, Imani either Harloff? Don't wash fell Whoa.

00:51:05 --> 00:51:07

Are you been on long haul?

00:51:16 --> 00:51:26

A few questions about the previous verse in which we learned about the Kafala for breaking oaths. First of all, what is an oath? What is a mean?

00:51:27 --> 00:51:33

When a person swears by Allah and makes a promise to either do something or

00:51:34 --> 00:52:24

not do something. So for example, a person says I swear by Allah, I will go for Hajj next year. Or he says, I swear by Allah, I'm never ever going to the mall again, at five o'clock in the evening. Okay, so both of them are what examples of your mean examples of oats? Because a person is swearing by WHO, Allah? And what does it mean by swearing by Allah that he's making Allah a witness to his promise, to his commitment to ensure that he will live by it, he will not break it, he will not go against it. However, life is not perfect. And there are situations when a person may need to break his oath, or it may be necessary. Or he may just want to, like one day a woman becomes very

00:52:24 --> 00:53:03

emotional. And she says, You know what, by Allah, I'm never getting married. And then later on, she's like, I think I should get married. Or one woman says, By Allah, I'm never gonna have children. And later on, she's like, I think I should have children. By Allah, I'm never doing this. And later on, you're like, I was very foolish to make such an oath, but an oath was made. So for that reason, it has to be broken. So for that, what should be done, the Kafala should be given and what's the Kafala? We have learned about it in the IRA. Now one question that many people asked was, What if a person swears an oath in anger? That he was extremely angry, and he swore an oath, that he

00:53:03 --> 00:53:20

is going to do something or not do something? So is he supposed to live by it? If he wants to break it? Should he give Kafala? Yes, because a Amin is a yummy, whether a person is angry, or he is happy. And usually, if you think about it, when is it that people swear oaths?

00:53:21 --> 00:54:09

When they're angry, when they're emotionally charged, whether that's love or anger, or jealousy, or whatever it is. So when a person is swearing an oath, whether he's angry or whatever, he still has to abide by it. And if he doesn't want to, then he has to give the Kafala why? Kafala? Because he's using Allah subhanaw taala his name, and this is not something small. One more question, a promise and a Amin are they the same? A promise and a Amin are they the same? No, they're not the same. A promise is what you say okay, I promise inshallah I will do this. And a Yameen is by Allah, I will do this. You mean is stronger? It doesn't mean that breaking promises, okay? No, you should also

00:54:09 --> 00:54:54

fulfill your promises your commitments, but for that there is no photo, the photo is for what you mean because it is much stronger. You're swearing by Allah. Okay, you're declaring it. So this is why there are serious consequences. Now also remember that in certain situations, breaking an oath is mandatory. In other situations, breaking an oath is haram. So remember that just because a person breaks an oath doesn't mean they are bad, or just because you find yourself in a position like this, that you swore an oath once upon a time and now you feel that you have to break it and you have to give the cavada it doesn't mean that you are sinful. Allah subhanaw taala has given the option of

00:54:54 --> 00:54:59

Kafala for what to get out of that guilt. So take advantage of it when you need it.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:06

So like I said, in certain situations breaking the oath is mandatory on a person when.

00:55:08 --> 00:55:15

Okay when his health is getting affected as a result of his oath. So for example, a person swears an oath, I'm never going to drink water again.

00:55:16 --> 00:56:01

Okay, you can last for a day, maybe two days, maybe three days, but maybe the fifth or sixth day the doctor is going to tell you better drink. If you don't drink, we're going to put a drip on you or something. So in this situation, he has to break an old like was a person says, I'm never going to pray Salah never wavered at all we again, I swear by Allah, I'm not stepping out of the house with this hijab on again, I swear by Allah, I'm never going to call my mom again. I swear by Allah, I'm never going to speak to my uncle again. I swear by Allah, I will never have any respect for my husband. Again, these are all haram oats. Okay. And if a person has sworn them deliberately, then he

00:56:01 --> 00:56:06

has to he must break it and he must give the Kafala for it.

00:56:07 --> 00:56:52

Likewise, in some situations, it is forbidden to break the oath that a person has made, meaning he's not allowed to break that oath when, when the oath made is over something while so for example, a person swears an oath. He says By Allah, I'm never going to have alcohol again. Never going to drink again. I'm never going to take these drugs again. Okay, she swears an oath, he swears an oath. And then he breaks it. Is that allowed for him to break that oath? No, he shouldn't break that oath. Why? Because if you break that oath, and what is he doing? He is disobeying Allah, he is committing haram. So remember this, that breaking an oath sometimes becomes mandatory on a person? Sometimes it

00:56:53 --> 00:57:26

is forbidden for a person to break that all. And sometimes it's okay. Why? Because it doesn't affect his Deen doesn't affect his life doesn't affect other people. So it's okay, it doesn't make much of a difference. Like for example, if you say, I swear by Allah, I'm never going to go to the mall again at 5pm in the evening, never going to the mall again on the weekends. And then what happens is that you have to go, you need something, you have to go you need something, and the only option is the mall. So you have to break the oath, and then you will give the Kafala.

00:57:27 --> 00:58:01

If somebody imposes something on you, by saying, By Allah Wallahi, you are not allowed to do this again. Like your mom says, I remember as a child, what happened was that after school, we would stop and get these slushies. Every day we'd get these lashes because it was really hot that summer, every summer, in fact, was hot in Pakistan. So anyway, we'd come home and not have lunch. And obviously, this would be something very stressful for my mother. So one day, she said by Allah, you guys are never having this again. And we're like, oh,

00:58:02 --> 00:58:08

we can't have it. Now. Later on, we found out that if you accept it,

00:58:10 --> 00:58:41

if you accept it, then you have to abide by it. And if you don't accept it, you say that No, no, I'm not accepting this Yameen of yours, then you're not obliged to adhere to it. Okay, but we were children. We didn't know good for us and Hamdulillah. So is it clear? If somebody imposes an oath on you, that by Allah, you have to do this or you're not allowed to do this, then if you accept it, then you have to adhere to it. And if you don't accept it, meaning you say it out, then that gives you enough to adhere to it.
