What either and when on Zillow it was revealed Surah don a surah. And that me know you all believe Billahi in Allah, wa Jai he do and you all strive Murata su li with His Messenger, meaning a clear surah is revealed. A clear command is given that people have to go out in the way of Allah striving with the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam and basically this is referring to the expedition to the book, meaning the command was not ambiguous. It was very clear everyone was required to go. What happened is that then aka he took permission from you. People started coming and taking permission from the profits of a lot is under permission for what? For staying behind. And which kind of people

00:00:51 --> 00:01:12

him or not totally oluwo possessors of Boly atoll is from the root letters Thor Whoa, lamb and tool basically means length. All right length. So for example, when someone's really tall, the word puwede is used. Now, the height of a person the length of something, is that something temporary?

00:01:13 --> 00:02:03

Is that something temporary? No, it's not temporary. Like, for example, if a person is 25 years old, and they're five feet five inches, for example, will they become five feet? Nine inches by the time they're 26? Probably not. I mean, they've reached their maximum by that age, right? And are they going to become four feet? No, maybe they will lose a few inches when they get older. All right, maybe one or two maximum. But we see that the height of a person, the length of something is a permanent feature. It's a permanent characteristic. It doesn't change every day, your weight might increase, decrease, but your height remains about the same. Correct. So on a pole refers to people

00:02:03 --> 00:02:47

who are wealthy, meaning it's not just a phase of being rich, but they've always been like this. And it seems from the current state that they will remain wealthy for their whole life. Like for example, some people are born into a family that is struggling financially. So what happens is struggle, struggle, struggle, and eventually they meet a point where they are stable. But then what happens there's always this fear that we might fall back again. Alright, some people their financial status is constantly fluctuating one year really good. Another year bad. One job really good. Another job bad. Okay. But other people that are constantly rich, they're constantly wealthy,

00:02:47 --> 00:03:31

because they have a stable source of income. All right. So Oh, not all refers to who? Those who are known to be wealthy. Those who are known to be wealthy. They have land, they have orchards. They have established businesses for many years, and they've been like this for a while. But these people, they come and start making excuses before you and start taking your permission to stay behind will call No. And they said though, net leave us no Komal curry, then we will be with those who stay behind. Please leave us please let us be. Don't tell us to come along with you. We want to stay behind.

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

Earlier, we learned that some of the hypocrites they said we don't have money if Allah gives us we will spend.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:18

And over here, what do we see that those of them who do have money? Again, they're coming up with excuses. We're too busy with our business. If we leave, it's going to collapse. Right? We don't have time right now, please let us stay. So some people, they blame circumstances, money, you know, time, family situation, health issues, this and that. But the problem is that the one who doesn't want to do something, you'll make anything an excuse. Right? The person who doesn't want to do something, he'll make anything and excuse. There's these verses of portrait in Arabic in which it says that

00:04:19 --> 00:04:50

if cold bothers you, and heat bothers you, and the beauty of spring, it distracts you. And in the autumn again, you're very cold, then when are you going to gain knowledge? When are you going to gain knowledge? Because if you think about it, seasons are constantly changing. In December, you're saying it's too cold. In March, April, you're saying oh, I want to go out have some fun in summer. You're saying it's too hot. In the fall. You're saying? Oh, it's getting cold? I can't do it.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

Life is never perfect, isn't it? So it's never perfect. There will always be something in your life.

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

There is going to be a test for you.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:46

And Allah subhanaw taala. Once that with those difficulties with those challenges, we come up, we rise up and we do what we have to. And the five daily prayers, the teachers, this lesson, doesn't matter whether you're sick or you're traveling or you have an exam or you have people coming over or you have to go over, it doesn't matter. The time for prayer comes in, and you have to pray no matter where you are. So likewise, when it comes to mandatory acts of worship, follow the train. Then with regards to that we have no choice. And over here, remember that going to the bathroom was faltering. Everyone was required to go but people came, who had wealth and the started making excuses. It

00:05:46 --> 00:06:18

wasn't that there was a genuine reason they just didn't want to. So when a person is insincere in his heart, then anything can become an excuse. Raju Allah says they are pleased to be on with that your call? No, they should be marl Hawaii live with those who stay behind. They're happy to be with those who remain behind. The word Hawaii Elif is very interesting. You see earlier we learned the word kharidian Hollyfield. And over here Allah uses the word hello. Elif Hawaii. Elif is the plural of holly.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:23

And who do you think Khalifa is Carly?

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

Not ha Elif Califa.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:31

Who is she? The woman who stays behind?

00:06:33 --> 00:06:54

Because in battle who would go the men would go women would stay behind? Why would they stay behind? Because they would think that oh, she cannot participate in battle? Why should she come she's gonna scream and make a fuss? Might as well leave her home. Right? So the women were not good enough to participate in battle. So what would be done, women would be left behind.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:08

Allah says over here, they are happy to remain behind with the women. Now for us, it would be like okay, what's the big deal but for an era man, this is quite an insult.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:15

For an Arab man, this is a big insult that he's being compared to a woman.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:27

A woman who is weak. So Raghu be Enya. Kuno Maren Halliwell, if they're happy to stay behind with the women, this is what they like.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:42

And if you think about it, anytime that we're excusing ourselves from doing what is important, what are we doing basically, we're happy that we should be losers. We don't want to admit that we're losers. We say no, no, my situation is different. I'm not really a loser.

00:07:43 --> 00:08:29

But essentially, what are we behaving like a loser? So rather we'll be hanging Hakuna Omar Al Hawa Elif will Toby Isla Kaluga him and their hearts were sealed over for him lay of Cameroon so they do not understand meaning they don't even understand what they're doing. They don't even realize what they're doing. They're staying behind from such a great opportunity. staying behind what the weak ones what's going on. Lacking but Rasul the messenger will Latina M and o Mara who and those who believe with him gehad will be unwell, him what unfussy him. They don't make excuses. What do they do? Whenever they're told they get up this drive in the way of Allah with their wealth and their

00:08:29 --> 00:08:51

lives? What Allah ICA and those Lahoma will highlight for them are good things played out Florida kala good things in this life and also in the Hereafter, Allah will grant them victory, he will grant them success and in the Hereafter, eternal blessings were Hola, Iike Hamal, mostly horn and it is those who are successful who those who make excuses. Who was successful.

00:08:52 --> 00:09:38

Those who strive those who do get the job done. Those who come forward and do the work. Right. Like they say that if you just sit and do nothing, you're not going to lose any calories. You have to get up and do something. Making excuses is not going to help you lose weight. What is going to help you lose weight, what is going to help you get fit, what exercise you have to move, you have to do something, but if a person makes excuses like I'm too busy, or I'm too tired and my knees hurting, then are those excuses going to help them lose weight, get back into shape? No. You could have a list of excuses, but they're not going to help. Who is successful, those who do work. So there are

00:09:38 --> 00:09:59

two kinds of people who are mentioned over here. One, those who make excuses. Those who are hypocrites, so they're lazy when it comes to performing the prayer there he'd less they avoid good, right? They have no interest in religion. And on the other hand, we have who the believers who strive in the way of Allah who

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

willingly spend their money and their time in the way of Allah who don't stay behind who go forward in every situation. Or de la hula whom Allah has prepared for them Jeanette in gardens doesn't even 30 Hold on how underneath which rivers flow? Holly Dena fie her abiding there and eternally their legal foes in our lane. And that is great success. So success comes with what with work? How do you accomplish something? Because foes is basically achievement? How do you achieve something by just sitting there? No, by doing something effort, striving, working

00:10:38 --> 00:11:23

water and more as their own. And on the other hand, the more the rune came more, or their own floral off, more are there. And who is more added? The one who makes further, what is an excuse an excuse, because of which you prove yourself innocent, right? Or an excuse, because of what you are allowed, you are exempted from doing something. And remember that an arithmetic could be genuine. It could be true. And it could also be, it could also be false, right? Like, for example, there is an exam and a person doesn't want to do it. So they pretend that they're really sick. And they're coughing, and, you know, they're pretending to shiver, and they're like, I'm hurting a lot inside and they go to

00:11:23 --> 00:11:26

the doctor like that just so that they can get a doctor's note.

00:11:27 --> 00:12:08

Okay, and then they get the doctor's note and they give it to their teacher. Now, what was this a false excuse? They weren't really sick. If they really wanted to write the test, write the exam, would they show up? Yes, they would have. The real problem is they didn't study. And now because of that fear, they're getting all those chills, and they're feeling weak. If they had studied if they had prepared, they wouldn't have this excuse right now. Right? But at other times, you see that a person really has a genuine excuse, like really, he had studied, but now he's really got a really high fever. And on top of that, they don't have the strength to get up and they're throwing up every

00:12:08 --> 00:12:20

few minutes. Now that is a genuine excuse. Okay, someone that is who one who offers an excuse. It could be false. It could be true. Could be genuine, it could be fake.

00:12:21 --> 00:13:13

All right. Allah says over here that the more the rune came, meaning mineral or unlock from the Bedouins or Rob is the plural of our V. And our alabi our law refers to the Bedouins Okay, remember that Allah is used for Arabs in general, but Arabi our law refers to those Arabs who lived in the desert Bedouins? Alright, so the previous ayat were about those Munna 15 who were inside Medina. Now this is specifically speaks about which ones those who came from outside Medina from the desert. So they came. Why Leo, then Allahu, so that it is permitted for them, what is permitted for them staying behind. So some of them they came to the Prophet saw a lot is that I'm offered a genuine

00:13:13 --> 00:13:52

excuse, or a fake excuse just so that they would be allowed to stay behind from the battle of the book. So what happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam allowed them. Like, for example, we learned that certain tribes that came to the Prophet salallahu Salam and excused themselves from participating in the battle because they were suffering from a great deal of poverty. Right? They were suffering from a lot of poverty. And they said that really, we cannot afford to go. So what happened the prophets of a lot of time allowed them to stay behind. But there were others who made up false excuses. All right. But Allah says over here, they came and made excuses whether they were

00:13:52 --> 00:14:40

genuine or fake. But what else happened? What are the and he said, who are Levina those who gather boo, they lied to Allah wa Sula, who to Allah and His Messenger, meaning some of them. They didn't even bother to come to the Prophet salallahu Salam, and take permission in order to stay behind. They didn't even bother. What did they do? They were lying to Allah and His messenger, what lie that we are Muslim. They weren't actually believers. They weren't actually Muslim. They didn't actually accept Islam. Earlier they had come showed their Islam just in order to be safe. And now what happened when they had to go for the battle? They didn't even bother to come and take permission.

00:14:41 --> 00:15:00

Allah says, say you sleep with Lilina Kufa, Roman home, either Aleem those who disbelieve among them, they will be struck by what a painful punishment very soon so you'll see very soon it will reach them a painful punishment. Now what do we see over here there are three types of people when any work needs to be done. There are three types of people

00:15:00 --> 00:15:46

Book, one, those who have a genuine excuse for not doing it, genuine excuse for not doing it for not being able to do it. So for example, there's a workplace. There is a person who works in a particular office. One morning, he calls in and he says, I'm really sick. I've got food poisoning, I can't come. He's really sick. He's actually got food poisoning. He has a genuine excuse for not showing up. Okay. There is another person. All right, who works in a different office. And he was partying late until last night. So what happened? He calls in at 930 and says, I'm stuck in traffic. Whereas Where is he? He's still in bed.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:48

What kind of excuses that?

00:15:50 --> 00:16:20

What kind of excuses that a false one. All right. And there's a third person who doesn't show up, doesn't call in, doesn't send an email. He doesn't show up at all the whole day. And the next day does the same thing. He doesn't show up at all. They don't even bother to inform as to why they're not coming. Did they decide to quit? Was there an emergency that happened? Nothing at all. They're just indifferent. They don't care at all.

00:16:21 --> 00:16:42

Like some people when they come to class, right? If they're not able to come to class, they will call from before they will take permission? Or if it was an urgent matter, they will let they're in charge. No. And there are others that don't show up. Don't tell they're in charge of the in charge asks everything. Okay, that idea. I was just busy, so I didn't come. Thanks for telling me.

00:16:44 --> 00:17:05

So there are three types of people right? Now think about it. Out of the three people who would you really excuse the first one, because they have a genuine reason. Right? And what happens at this person when they're sick, the rest of the people, they're concerned about them, their boss, even he's concerned about them, right.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:19

And the second type of person, they make a false excuse one day, another false excuse one day, another false excuse another day. So what happens? Your boss says, I think you're too busy. Maybe we'll let you go. We'll find somebody else do the job.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:55

Right? Because the person who's always making excuses, what happens, they lose their credibility, they're not reliable anymore. Basically, you ask them to get something done within a day. They don't do it within a week even. So what happens you're like, I can't give you any more work. You're not reliable anymore. Right? And the third type of person who doesn't even bother to show that what happens? They're not even given a warning. They're just told you're fired. Correct. So when this happens in worldly matters, what do we expect near ALLAH SubhanA authority.

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

If in this dunya, which is much lesser compared to the ACA, if this is the standard than the ACA, which is much, much better? What do we expect over there, that our faults, excuses will save us that we don't even show up? We don't even give a reason. Take permission, and we'll be forgiven.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:25

Allah says, say you see when Latina kuffaar Woman Hamada, when early a painful punishment is going to reach them.

00:18:26 --> 00:19:17

Then Allah clarifies that yes, there are people who have genuine excuse and who are there. They're mentioned over here. Laser it is not I looked down upon the weak ones, Florida brief, Walla and Nora Island Marva upon the sick ones por la Marieb. One and Nora Island Lavina on those people who laryea je Luna who do not find may UniFi corner that which they could spend what is not on these three types of people halogen any blame, meaning they are not blameworthy if they're staying behind, if they're not going forth in the way of Allah? Because they have a valid excuse. They have a genuine reason. What are the three reasons mentioned over here? First of all, Bertha, secondly, marble and

00:19:17 --> 00:19:59

thirdly, Alladhina, Leia DeLuna, may even feel cold. Now do Alpha bereave is one who has dwarf what is dwarf weakness. And weakness could be physical and could also be mental. Right? A person could be physically weak and he could also be mentally weak. Now if a person does not have the strength to walk, he does not have that he's born like that. He has that physical weakness. He doesn't have the strength to walk. He doesn't have the strength to drive. He has that weakness. He doesn't have the strength to focus at all. He has a serious illness, whether it is mental, psychological, physical, and because of that, he's not

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

To be able to perform a certain act of worship is excused. Yes, he is. So for example, if there is a person who has some mental illness and because of that they cannot even communicate with another person at Fajr time, or they're required to pray Fudger

00:20:18 --> 00:21:02

or they're required to provide you as a hard time. Are they required to pay the hook? No. Why? Because they have a mental illness. You talk to them, they don't know what you're saying. You ask them something. They have no idea. They're just staring at the wall. They have no clue. Nothing at all. Is this dwarf? Is this weakness? Yes. So do they have a valid excuse? Yes. And other person, they have a serious mental disorder, because of which their body is also extremely weak. Are they required to fast in the month of Ramadan? They're not capable of doing that? Do they have a valid excuse for not fasting in the month of Ramadan? Yes. So this is dwarf. All right. Another is who?

00:21:02 --> 00:21:33

Secondly, Marga Marieb. Now vooraf, this is a permanent state, a permanent state. But model, this is not a permanent state. It's a temporary state you're sick. So for example, at the overtime you're extremely sick. Are you required to pay a loader? Yes, you are required to pre load. But are you required to pray like other people are required to pray, like doing will do and standing up and pray? No, if you're really sick, you're not able to do we'll do what can you do? You can do.

00:21:34 --> 00:22:19

Right? If you're not able to stand what can you do? The matter is made easy for you, you can sit and pray. Correct. So with sickness also, we see that a person has a genuine excuse. The third is not having the means financial means to go out in the way of Allah. So a person doesn't have money is he required to give zakat? If a person doesn't have money? Is it required to give the cat? No, he's not required to. Right. So what do we see over here that these three cases weakness, sickness, and poverty, these three are valid, valid excuses for staying behind from the way of Allah.

00:22:20 --> 00:23:11

But remember that sometimes we think that we are too sick, or we think that we are too weak. And that's not the case. We make ourselves too sick. And we exempt ourselves from doing what we are capable of doing even with that sickness. You know, insert a body there is a whole chapter on what level of sickness does a person have to be suffering from in order to remain behind from SallAllahu Jamara from praying in congregation? Meeting a sick person, he is allowed to stay at home and pray, amen. Okay, he's not forced that he should go to the masjid and pray in Jamar. But the question is, How bad does that sickness have to be? Is it just a headache? Or is it something really serious? So

00:23:11 --> 00:24:00

this is a question right? So Mr. McCarty, he mentions under that chapter, a hadith, in which we learn about the time when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was near his death. And he was extremely sick. And he was very sick. So he was not able to get up and go to the masjid and lead people in prayer. So he told his wife to go tell Abu Bakr to lead people in prayer. So what happened after little back and forth eventually we bucket a little on who he came to the masjid and he led the people in prayer. And as he was leading the Prophet salallahu Salam felt a little better. So he found some strength in his body. And what happened he asked to be taken to the masjid. So the Jamara

00:24:00 --> 00:24:27

is going on. And two men came or vassula aren't who and our little Buddha who aren't who and the Prophet SAW Allah Islam was taking their support. Taking their support, one on his right side, one on his left side, and he was walking to the masjid with his feet dragging. With his feet dragging, he walked to the masjid, taking the support of two men. And he went and sat next to Abu Bakr Aldo Arno and perform the salah in Jamar

00:24:28 --> 00:24:43

with that higher fever, extreme sickness, he wasn't even able to walk himself. He went and performed prayer in Jamara. He didn't allow himself to stay behind. And what do we do?

00:24:44 --> 00:24:52

What do we do? I have a stomachache so I cannot sit in class. Well, you can walk around. Why can't you sit sitting is easier than walking.

00:24:53 --> 00:25:00

Isn't that so? On the smallest thing we exempt ourselves we allow ourselves

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

is to stay behind. What are we doing? We're depriving ourselves. We are depriving ourselves.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:52

Haven't you seen people who have disabilities, but yet they will accomplish so much in this life, just because they have, you know, a problem with their leg, they will not stay behind from participating in Olympics. Alright, just because they have a health condition, just because they have a mental disorder or some physiological disorder, it doesn't mean they will not go on to study medicine and become a physician or something like that, they will still do it. And there are so many examples that we see of people with disabilities doing so much. Why? Because they don't let their disability stop them. And this is true, a person who wants to do something, then it doesn't matter

00:25:52 --> 00:26:26

if he's sick. If he doesn't have the money. If he doesn't have the strength, he will do what is important to him. And we learn about a companion, Mr. Benjamin, that he wasn't able to walk properly, he was laying in one of his legs. And at the time of battle, he was told you don't have to go. But what did he say? I want to enter Janna, limping. I limp now, this is how I want to enter gender. Why should I stay behind just because I have one bad leg, at least one works properly. I can still walk.

00:26:27 --> 00:27:07

So many cool. Just two examples. I wanted to bring up one time my dad was really, really sick. And he was getting up to go to work. And I said, Dad, don't you have sick days? And he's like, Yes, I do. And I'm like, can't you take one? And he's like, Yeah, I can. But I can just go to work. And I'm like, No, you should rest and take one. So he didn't even want to take a sick day one, he actually has one. So it just goes to show that if someone really wants to do something, they're going to do it. That you will see this very common in the people who work. Right who work what happens with them that even though they're sick, they have a cold, they have fever, they will still go to work, they

00:27:07 --> 00:27:14

will have their big, you know, coffee or their soup or whatever. But they will push themselves and they will do their work.

00:27:15 --> 00:27:56

And the other example is that university like I see it all the time. People get deferred notes for exams, especially or tests, and then they defer their exams. So the way it works in December is if you defer the December exam, you write it in February. And I see it all the time in February like those students don't do well, because they have a whole new semester with all new courses. And then they have to study for a course that they don't even remember like from two months ago, right? So that's what they've gotten themselves into. Yes. So no matter how hard it is, push yourself and do it. Push yourself and do it. Because if you don't do it now, you'll have to do it later. And when

00:27:56 --> 00:28:10

you will do it later, it'll be more difficult. And you know what happens? With your sickness with your weakness, if you have something important to focus on, then dealing with your sickness becomes much easier.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:25

Isn't that so? Like, for example, if your head is hurting, and you sit down, you say, my head is hurting, my head is hurting. I can do anything. Somebody's trying to talk to you like, Huh, what are you saying my head is hurting.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:48

But when your mom has her headache? Does she have the luxury to sit like that? No. What will she do? She'll have a cup of tea or something. And she'll say, Okay, let me just start cooking. And what happens as she starts cooking and she start doing laundry? Yes, she's a little slow. But what happens it's easier for her to deal with it.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:53

Right? She can forget the pain when she has a greater cause.

00:28:54 --> 00:29:20

There's a man named Spencer West and he doesn't have any legs. He only has from his hips up. And he was able to climb Kilimanjaro in Africa all on his own. And then he didn't want to live on it with himself and like couple of friends. And then he did it again. He led a group of teenagers like from America and Canada and like it was just him leading them and like he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with his hands and no legs, just from his hips up.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:26

And the person who doesn't want to do it even with two strong healthy legs, what is he going to say?

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

My feet are hurting.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:34

I don't have good shoes.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:36

It's too sunny.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:59

I don't have good glasses. Alright, when I get a nice hat, then inshallah I will think about climbing up this mountain. But you know what, if you want to climb up the mountain, you don't need those glasses. You don't need those shoes. You don't need those feet. You don't need anything. What do you need that spirit? Right? What do you need the willpower

00:30:00 --> 00:30:47

Our end determination and when you have that determination, then doesn't matter what weakness you have, you will still do it. So over here Allah says liaison of Darfur de Walla, walla walla leadin, Elia to Duna, my own vehicle Mahajan. But if because of this weakness, someone is not able to go forth in the way of Allah, there is no harm. They're not to blame. They're not committing any sin, but there is a condition. What is that condition? Ie there when NASA who they are sincere lay for Allah wa SULI and His messenger. They have to be sincere to Allah and His messenger. Meaning even though they're behind, they shouldn't be rejoicing. Oh, we got to stay behind Alhamdulillah for this

00:30:47 --> 00:31:34

bad leg. No, you have to be sincere. And that sincerity means that you do whatever is within your capacity. Even though you're home, even though you're not going with the rest of the people. You still do whatever you can and you are sincere. You want the best for the Muslims model, Marcin Unum in Seville, there is no weight of blame against you against mercy and even those who do good will Allah hula photo Rahim Allah, Allah is forgiving, and merciful. So the fact is that every person has been granted some skill, some special ability, and that he has to use in the way of Allah. Right, he has to use that in the way of Allah, whatever it may be. And remember that if you have less of one,

00:31:34 --> 00:31:36

you will have more of the other.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:49

If you are not able to perform really good. In one aspect, you have more strength in another aspect of your life. Allah subhanaw taala has not created anyone completely deprived.

00:31:50 --> 00:32:08

The other day I received an email about this organization where some blind people had basically organized a lunch for people who could see, right. And they had said that this lunch, you're going to have in complete darkness, so that you can experience what blind people go through

00:32:09 --> 00:32:46

in pitch dark. So what happened they explained to them from before that this will be on your right, this will be on your left, this will be in front of you. And the jug, which is like this has this in it and the jug which is which is like this feels like this has this particular drink in it. And this is how they were made to eat this so that they could experience how blind people live. Now for the people who could see they were struggling a lot. Because in the darkness, they were struggling, but the people who were blind who are actually organizing the whole event, imagine they were the organizers. They were perfectly fine.

00:32:47 --> 00:33:33

So I was thinking over there that yes, the blind people they're not able to see, but Alhamdulillah their other senses. They're much sharper. Right? Allah subhanaw taala has made them stronger in other ways, the way we rely on our eyes. Of course they don't. But they have other skills that are much stronger, much sharper than ours. Right? So this is a reality. Allah subhanaw taala has strengthened every person in one way or another. So what is our job? That if we find ourselves weak in one way, we don't settle with it. Don't settle with it. Many times that happens, the person says I have a husband, he's very picky. He's very particular about his meals. I can't go out of the house

00:33:33 --> 00:33:50

much. Why are you settled with it? Why are you settled with this in your life, that you're not going to do anything? Okay, he wants his food on time. Make sure that he's got his food on time and the world is yours then when he's at work, do whatever you have to.

00:33:51 --> 00:34:26

So Michael, I was just thinking what I when I was reflecting when people said that the people with disabilities, I think it's mostly that they have their priorities straight done that they know that okay, like, for example, when we have an exam the next day, and we have to go somewhere we make sure we in our notes with us to wherever we're going because we know we have Dr exam will make the means for us to study. So we go to the exam, the next you will sleep earlier, whatever will make it work. So the people who have their disabilities, they know that for example that I have to do this I have to eat. So how would I do this? And I remember how you set the example before how there was a blind

00:34:26 --> 00:34:40

sister who did the whole time on cron course. Right? And she did that by listening to recordings because she knew I had to do this. So I'll find a way to do it. Yeah. So I think our priorities aren't right. And when we're put in that situation, then we somehow get our priorities right? Yes.

00:34:42 --> 00:35:00

In college, we were having a discussion about disabled people. So I would teach it made us into groups and then we have to do a debate on it. So when we're discussing all of this at our teacher came in she said that you guys are using disabled person, disabled person disabled again.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:27

And again, don't call them disabled call them people with different abilities. Yes, that's true. They have different abilities. Because if you think about it, we disabled ourselves despite having the ability and they don't accept that, that they are deficient in one way. No, they have different abilities. Okay, if my eyes don't work, I have better ears and a better sense of the space and everything around me. All right.

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

Wanda and Nora Allah upon Alladhina those who either ma Atoka that when they come to you Lita Milla home so that you provide them with a mount, that Miller home from Hamel Hamel is one

00:35:44 --> 00:36:20

hammer to carry, right, the Lord. So Lita mela home they come to you so that you give them something on which they can mount. In other words, they come to you for means of transportation. They say that we are willing to go with you for this expedition. But we don't have anything to go on. We don't have a camel, we don't have a horse. So if you have Could you please give us so those people they come to you and all the Yusei let a G do I do not find man that which Milaca Marilla he I can

00:36:21 --> 00:36:57

provide to you as a mount. I don't have anything to give you. Now this happened, I will settle to lower and he reported that my friends sent me to the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam as asking him to provide them with mounts as they were going along with him in jail or slow meaning to the book. And I said, O Messenger of Allah, my friends have sent me to you so that you may provide them with mounts the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was very upset at that time, because people were coming up with excuses, one after the other. So he thought this is also an excuse, that you're not going to use your own animals and you're coming to me asking for a beta man. To the prophets have a

00:36:57 --> 00:37:01

lot of time set by Allah, I cannot provide you with anything to write.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:08

By Allah, I cannot provide you with anything to write on. I don't have anything. So don't ask me, basically.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:52

And it so happened that Abu Musa although I knew he was really hurt, and so were his friends because they really wanted to go, they honestly wanted to go. But they were poor. They didn't have the means. So they came to the prophets are lost. And I'm wondering if there were any donations. So they were asking, Do you have anything could you provide us and the Prophet salallahu Salam, he said Coulter, let me do my Mila Kumar Lee. So what happened the one low they turned, meaning those men who came to the prophets of Allah and I'm asking, they turn back who are you know whom and their eyes, the field woman at the Murray, overflowing with tears. They were crying, they saw badly wanted

00:37:52 --> 00:38:02

to go. But they didn't have the means, has an out of grief, a lady do that they do not find mailed, fickle and that which they could spend.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:19

So some are people who make false excuses who say, we cannot go because of this reason, because of that reason. And there are others who have a genuine excuse. And despite that, they try to go, they try to obey Allah. And when they are not able to.

00:38:20 --> 00:38:43

They are sad, and they cry. So for such people, Allah says they are not to blame. They are not sinful if they stay behind. You see, sometimes you have the sincere intention to do something. And you really want to do it, and you try. But you're not able to do it. And you ask others for help also, but you don't get that help you don't get that support.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:56

But in your heart, you're still crying, I want to do this, but I'm not able to do it. So what should you do? Should you just accept that? Whatever, I cannot do it, no, you keep striving, you keep asking ALLAH

00:38:57 --> 00:39:29

and you cry before him, like you cry for money for other things. Cry before him to give you the opportunity to do Hey, so what happened with these men, the prophets Allah sent him he called him back of Musa it'll blow on who him and his companions, he called them and the prophets of Allah is Allah. He provided them with multiple camels about six, in order to use to go to the book. So those companies that were overjoyed before they were crying, with this realization that we're not going to be able to go

00:39:30 --> 00:39:46

think about it, someone who really wants to go somewhere, but they don't have the means. Like, for example, everybody's going but the ticket is $1,500. And you realize I don't have $1,500 to spare, and I can't go because I don't have those $1,500.

00:39:47 --> 00:39:53

So some people cry because you're not going to Disney. Right? And others they cry because you're not going to be able to go for it.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:59

But do they just accept or not in my basement? And they say whatever I can't go in

00:40:00 --> 00:40:10

No, they keep asking Allah they keep begging Allah. And it doesn't matter how long it has been. They keep asking Allah and one day, Allah fulfills their wish for them.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:53

And if it doesn't happen today, in sha Allah for that Nia of luck will reward them. I remember growing up there was a maid in our house. And from the first day she came, she used to say, Take me for Hajj, take me for Hajj. I really really want to go for Hajj to the poor lady. For years and years, everybody tried to get her some ID card made to get passport made that in Pakistan, there was no way of even getting her ID card made because even her birth was not registered and she was in her 60s. So how are you supposed to get a passport made for a person who's like that? But anyway, everybody's struggled and strove to get her passport made somehow jQa for Hajj, Allahu Allah if she

00:40:53 --> 00:41:12

was ever able to go or not. But what I remember is that that woman, she terribly, terribly wanted to go she didn't settle with this fact that I'm just a maid in somebody's house. How am I ever gonna go? No, she knew there's a house of Allah. People go there for Hajj. I want to go there too.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:27

Some people cry, they die to go to America. Right? They die to go to the UK or something like that. But others their goal, their burning desires that they want to go in the way of Allah subhanaw taala and they cry of they're not able to.

00:41:29 --> 00:42:15

They spend willingly in the way of Allah whatever they have. And if they don't have it, they cry. They wish they could have it. So Allah says if they're not able to go, no blame on them in nama Seville indeed the way meaning the way of blame is against to Allah Alladhina yester the no naka on those people who take permission from you, or whom Alinea well, they're rich while they're wealthy on the floor enough money, meaning they have the means yet they make excuses for Rob who will be cool no matter how early. Again, Allah repeats, they're happy to stay behind with the women will tuber Allahu Allah Kuru Begum. And Allah has set a seal upon their hearts for whom layer them on. So

00:42:15 --> 00:42:39

they do not even know. They do not even know what do they not know what they're missing out on. There are others who are crying to get that opportunity. And these people, they have every opportunity to go out but they're not availing it, if only they knew they don't know for whom layer limit they do not know. So you see how much of a difference knowledge makes

00:42:41 --> 00:43:01

how much of a difference knowledge mix, if a person knows the value of something, he will do anything to get it he will do anything to do it. And on the other hand, if a person does not know the value of it then even if it's given to him for free, he's not going to take it he's not going to benefit from it. So this is why it's necessary that we use our mind

00:43:03 --> 00:43:29

you know to understand the religion of Allah so we really realize what is important and what is not we know what is beneficial and what is not. So this life that we are only going to live once is spent in doing something useful not in trying things out and wasting time and wasting opportunity rather every opportunity we avail but it comes with knowledge and understanding recitation

00:43:30 --> 00:43:31

what either

00:43:35 --> 00:43:40

do or don't mean he was he do

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

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

than more than levena

00:45:00 --> 00:45:01

00:46:27 --> 00:46:31

you up all day long while for no beans

00:46:36 --> 00:46:45

so with this we complete our Tengiz Hamdulillah. What's the main lesson that you have learned?

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

From the Tengiz?

00:46:48 --> 00:46:49


00:46:51 --> 00:47:21

we have no excuse for not putting forth our effort or time or skills. There's others who have so much more to have so much less than us who haven't had as long as long as we've had, who don't have the knowledge and opportunities that we do. And yet they're completely surpassing us and doing so much more than we do. So we have absolutely no excuse to not do anything else. That with knowledge, really, a person has no excuse. No excuse at all. You know how these we learned that towards the end of time.

00:47:22 --> 00:47:54

The Prophet said a lot of them said he was addressing the companions in your time. There are more people who do armor and less people who talk more people who do armor, meaning who do what they're supposed to. And they're very few speakers, very few aerators. But a time will come when this will be reversed, that there will be many people who talk who speak many aerators. But very few who actually do Armin.

00:47:56 --> 00:48:04

He said when it comes to you, meaning he was addressing the Companions, if you leave even a 10th of what you know,

00:48:06 --> 00:48:12

a 10th of what you have knowledge of if you don't do well on it, you know that you will be doomed.

00:48:13 --> 00:48:22

But a time will come when if the people will act on even a 10th of what they know. Hopefully they will be saved.

00:48:24 --> 00:48:24

You understand

00:48:25 --> 00:48:27

that how

00:48:28 --> 00:48:32

a time will come when people will have a lot of fun, but they will not do much.

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

But those who have them, even if it's a little if they act on even a fraction of it. Hopefully, they will be saved. So what is our responsibility? That with the knowledge that we're learning

00:48:48 --> 00:48:51

than just that we have learned? What should we act on?

00:48:53 --> 00:49:29

At least a 10th of it? If not all of it at least attempt because there is no excuse. If a person doesn't have alien, okay? He has a reason. But the person who has he doesn't have any excuse. So don't give yourself an excuse. You know who allows you to do something or not do something you yourself, you are your judge, you are your leader. So it's up to you. What do you tell yourself and what do you excuse yourself from the responsibility lies on you alone?

00:49:31 --> 00:49:32

Do you want to say something?

00:49:33 --> 00:49:59

I want to share something. During all of these scores, I learned many lessons. And when recently you were talking about like we pray to Allah subhanaw taala for what we really want and if I've really really focused on that thing really long for that thing. So believe me when I joined this course I came here to give the entrance test for the school.

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

And I heard that there are 300 students, more than 300 students probably who were the candidates to for the enrollment of this course. And it's really difficult. And probably, the administration had to pick and choose. So believe me, I got so much like, worried. And I was so overwhelmed with this fact that I mean, whether I'm not going to accept it, what should I do if I'm not, and I just prayed and prayed, and I was just hopeful to Allah subhanho wa taala. And I was saying a lot. I like that this is probably my only opportunity to learn Quran and this institution. I mean, this is a great blessing that we have this this opportunity here in Canada. So and when he got the email from the

00:50:47 --> 00:51:01

administration that I got admitted, it was a time like that I actually packed a lot subhanaw taala. And I said, Yes, what I wanted, he always, he always gives me actually, it's not that I pray for something, and he doesn't give me it's it never happens.

00:51:02 --> 00:51:42

And second thing that I mean, there are many lessons, it's just like that I cannot encompass all of the lessons that I learned during this course and just in one discussion. But for me, for a moment, failure is a word that is unknown for a moment. If he doesn't succeed, apparently, even then, if he has trust on Allah subhanaw taala he thinks that it's better for me, there is something best for me in the future, that Allah saves me from some kind of hardship or anything. Generally, we say that where there is a will, there is a way. So for a moment, there is always a will to please Allah subhana wa taala. And the ways will come I mean, he automatically makes ways for you. I want to

00:51:42 --> 00:52:19

share with you that one day in the summer in a very hot summer in Canada. In July, we have very tough summer in Canada, I generally go to say Juma prayer. And I was like, confused that whether I should go or not, because bassy of my car wasn't working at that time. And it was very hot. And my husband called me from the office and he's asking me, Are you going? And I said, No, I'm thinking about to miss Juma this time because it's really hot. And when they see of my car is not working. And he said, you just go and you will see that clouds will come for you. He was just joking. And believe me, believe me, I just got prepared for Joomla and I went out and clouds did come.

00:52:21 --> 00:52:43

And it was all the till the time I got back home. It was cloudy, and if there was a light drizzle also. So I'm in you just make your way. And if you really want to do it, you will do it. And don't think that there is some hardship or difficulty if you face any difficulty in your way. You will get more reward for that. Yes, so that should be the belief of a woman. Thank you so much. Hayden cathedra

00:52:46 --> 00:53:15

and when it come there's many things that of course we we've learned along the way, but I think one of the main things for me was just a reminder that to put things into perspective. Dunya is dunya but Africa is waiting for us and sometimes we get so caught up into the day to day things that we tend to forget that we will return to Allah azza wa jal so for me that was the main lesson that I've learned throughout this journey is just putting things into perspective and prepare prepare for tomorrow because it will come it will come

00:53:18 --> 00:53:25

Subhanak Hola. Hola. We should do a La ilaha illa Anta the stuff we will go on a tube we like a Santa Monica de la Heuberger
