Because every woman who is divorced right at the time of divorce, she used to be given some Mirtha some monetary benefit. We learned in the Quran while Matan Locati Mobtown that for all divorced

00:03:08 --> 00:03:18

Meaning all wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam, if your goal is worldly life, and its glamour, then you have married the wrong person.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

But worry not. If that is your preference.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:40

Then you can go and you have the choice. And you will be sent away in a very nice way, not in an offensive way whatsoever. And then once you're gone, once you're no longer married to the Prophet salallahu Salam then you can go on and pursue whatever you wish.

00:03:41 --> 00:04:04

But if your goal is the dunya then you have married the wrong person. We're in con tuna. We're in and if con tuna you were such that to read in Allah, you want Allah your goal is Allah Allah's pleasure. What a Sula who and His Messenger what Donal era and the home of the Hereafter

00:04:06 --> 00:04:59

and getting Allah's pleasure getting the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam getting the home of the Hereafter, this demands a heavy price a heavy investment for you. And if you are willing to do that, then for in the Lucha, then indeed Allah. He has prepared lil mercy natty for those women who do Xand men cannot among you, I do run out Lima a great reward. If you choose Allah, His messenger the home of the Hereafter, then that would be your heir son and when you would do your son, then what do you get in return? A drawn Alima so choose what you want. Two goals are clearly laid out for the as wadge MOBA huddled. And what were the first way is that your goal is dunya and

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


00:05:00 --> 00:05:20

But then you would have to separate from the Prophet salallahu Salam, But worry not, you will be sent away in a very nice way. But if your goal is the hero, if your goal is Allah, then that demands a great sacrifice right now. And what do you get in return a JSON or Lima, so decide what you want, and then pay its price.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:42

You see the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were no ordinary women. They were royalty and they are still royalty, because who are they? The Mothers of the Believers. So if you think about it out of all women, who is it that deserves the luxuries of this world, the comforts of this world, the riches of this world, who?

00:05:43 --> 00:06:28

Which women, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially because they had sacrificed a great deal in the way of Allah, and they were worthy of all these rewards. However, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not just a breadwinner for his wives. He wasn't a king whose goal was to take his nation towards financial prosperity. Who was he, he was sent as a giver, as a deliverer, someone to distribute, not to collect and a mess. So the wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam, at one occasion, what happened is that they demanded some money, extra money, or some financial ease from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Why because the financial conditions of the

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

Muslims overall it was improving.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:39

So they demanded from the Prophet salallahu Salam that we should also be given, you know, all of this stuff for after all, we are your wives, so we should be given more money.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:50

So Allah subhanaw taala revealed these verses, and these verses are known as the ayat of the heat, the here meaning choice,

00:06:51 --> 00:07:03

that the wives of the Prophet sallallaahu Salam are given a choice over here. All right, what is the choice that you choose? And it's completely your decision. And whatever you choose,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:49

you know, you will not be stopped from that choice from taking that. If your goal is dunya, it's Xena. It's adornment. Go ahead. Nobody's gonna stop you from it. But then you can't stay married to the prophets on a lot, isn't it? Because the goal of the prophets on a lot of time is not to make money and make his family richer. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam his goal was not even to make the Muslims financially prosperous, right, the goal of the Prophet sallallahu sallam was not related to dunya dunya in the sense that increase in dunya increase in money, no, he came to give, he came to encourage us to give, he came to guide to deliver and in order to deliver, you have to

00:07:49 --> 00:07:51

give even what you have

00:07:52 --> 00:08:30

the profits on a lot of sudden could not have a job, like any other person could, could not go on business trips, if he wanted, he couldn't have a property that he would look after. And, you know, make profits with that. Why? Because he was constantly working visa vie Allah. He was guiding, he was teaching, he was working for the cause of Islam. And so he needed that support from his family also, that they are on the same page. So this is why the wives of the Prophet saw a lot of setup, they're given a choice over here that you choose, if you want dunya then you cannot have the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the prophets on a lot of sevens

00:08:30 --> 00:08:36

goal is not to make you richer, his goal is not to make his family richer, no, his goal is something else.

00:08:37 --> 00:09:23

And if you want the home of the Hereafter, and that demand some sacrifice right now, some investment right now, that will bring endless reward, a great reward in the hereafter. So I shall blow on her, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she said that when these ayat were revealed, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to her, right and he said, that I am going to tell you about something and you do not have to rush right in giving me an answer. You must consult your parents. Okay. And the Prophet salallahu Salam, and then he recited these verses dry shutter below on him, and basically said that, you know, consult your parents before you make a decision. I shall do on her. She said,

00:09:24 --> 00:09:33

and why would I consult my parents concerning this? I choose Allah and His messenger and home of the Hereafter.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:56

You see, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was such an amazing man. He didn't put any pressure on I should have lower and that you're going to choose me right? You're going to choose the home of the Hereafter. Right? He didn't put any pressure. He said, I'm going to present you with the choice and this is from Allah. You don't make any decision. You know, don't hasten don't rush consult your parents.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

This is the freedom that the Prophet sallallahu

00:10:00 --> 00:10:29

Saddam gave to OSHA below on how you choose, and don't rush consult. And then whatever you decide, decide with full faith and confidence, and I showed the low earner, look at her response, why would I need to consult my parents? I choose Allah, His messenger and the home of the Hereafter, and the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he presented these verses before all of his wives, and each one of them gave the same response as our Isha little de la horn.

00:10:30 --> 00:11:10

At that time, when these verses were revealed, the Prophet salallahu Salam was married to nine women at that time when inshallah we will discuss about the marriages of the prophets of Allah Assam later on in the Surah. All right, and all of them, they chose who, Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter. Now, if you think about it for a wife, what is her right? What is her right as a wife that she should be taken care of? Right, her needs should be taken care of in the sense that her financial needs are all taken care of she's provided with food with ample luxuries, you could say, or not just necessities, but depending on the culture and the time whatever is appropriate should be

00:11:10 --> 00:11:50

given to her. This is the right of a woman. Right. And in Islam, a woman is not obligated to earn money herself. Why because the husband has been given the responsibility to take care of his family and provide them with whatever their needs are. Right now that is what that is either. So if the wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam are demanding that we should be given more money, we should be given more food, we should be given more in a luxury because we need it. You see, I should have learned her she said the days would go by and the fire would not be lit in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Can you imagine if this was our house?

00:11:51 --> 00:11:52

What would we do

00:11:53 --> 00:11:59

it for an entire month the stove has not been turned on? Because there is nothing to cook.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:21

There is nothing to cook. So what is it that I should have below on? How would survive on and the prophets of Allah Saddam would survive on the two black things? And what are the dates and water? So as a wife, wasn't it the right of Aisha below on how to demand from her husband that please do something so that we have food to eat?

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


00:12:24 --> 00:12:32

isn't he right in her demand for food? Think about it. She's right. Correct. But

00:12:33 --> 00:13:16

it wasn't just the profits on a lot of systems household that was suffering financially, who else was suffering? It was the entire Muslim community. Because whatever they had, would go in the way of Allah. Because at that time, the Muslims were struggling so much in so many different ways. Think about it. 70 people, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent somewhere in order to teach people the Quran and what happened? They were killed. That's a big loss. At the Battle of 170 Muslims were killed 70 and who were these people that were fathers or brothers or husbands? What about their families, you understand? And then because they were Muslim trade was already difficult for them, you understand?

00:13:16 --> 00:13:56

People would not really deal with them that easily travel for the purpose of trade was not safe for the Muslims anymore. If they had farms, even that they couldn't really work on so much, because every now and then they would have to leave their farms in order to go defend the Muslims. Remember, when the battle of the book happened, the expedition to the book, when harvest time, that is when the Muslims had to leave their lands and travel in the hot season, in order to defend the religion of Allah. So the Muslims in general were suffering from poverty at that time. So I should have blower and heard the other wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they demanded that there needs to

00:13:56 --> 00:13:57

be taken care off.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:07

So Allah subhanaw taala gave them this choice. And when they chose Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter, what were they giving up?

00:14:08 --> 00:14:11

What were they giving up their rights?

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

They were agreeing to stay hungry.

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

They were agreeing

00:14:19 --> 00:14:26

to stay financially weak. They were agreeing to all of that. And this was their son.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:59

And Hallo. Jezza Sani ill isn't. Is there any reward for axon except for exam? No, they did it son. And Allah subhanaw taala also did airson to them, how that Allah subhanaw taala rewarded them in many ways. First of all, we see in all of the verses that will come and that Allah's pounds are to increase their status above all other women. When Allah says less than Naka had a minister, you are not like any other women, your status is higher.

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

Secondly, they had the companionship of the best men. They were wives of who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Thirdly, we learned in this sutra, only that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was forbidden from divorcing them or taking any other wife after them. Meaning these were his wives in dunya, and akhira. Amazing. And another favor that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed on them was that he declared the wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam as well. Mahato many the Mothers of the Believers, they did Xand, Allah subhanaw taala also rewarded them for their son. What do we learn in these verses? The deen of Allah, what does it demand? Sacrifice, commitment? And that sacrifice and

00:15:47 --> 00:15:52

commitment? What does that bring to a person eternal rewards?

00:15:54 --> 00:16:01

eternal rewards. You see, anything you want to accomplish in this life, if it's big, you have to sacrifice big,

00:16:02 --> 00:16:06

right? And if it's small, you have to sacrifice a little bit.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:28

The one whose goal is the luxurious homes of the Hereafter the highest levels of the Rajat Rula, then the sacrifice has to be off the raja theta ruler also. Right, the investment has to be big also. And now we need to bring this to our lives.

00:16:29 --> 00:17:08

That, for example, seeking or in, does that demand some sacrifice? A lot, right? Just the other day I saw somebody, they were hurting a lot. Okay, because they had been working out. And I said, What do you do them? You know, if your instructor, what do they say? That if you're hurting? What should you do? And they said that, oh, my instructor only says no pain, no gain, and you know, all of these things and like, but how do you soothe yourself, if you're hurting from all that? Working out, you know, your shoulder, your neck, you know, I thought you're supposed to be stronger after your workout, but you seem to be in a lot of pain. The instructor only says no pain, no gain, you got to

00:17:08 --> 00:17:16

work harder, you got to work harder. That's all that the instructor says. I mean, even in dunya, isn't that what we have to do?

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

Isn't it? So then what do we think about the dean,

00:17:21 --> 00:17:22

if we have to seek or

00:17:23 --> 00:17:52

if we want to learn, if we want the Quran to become a part of our lives, there has to be something that we have to give, right? And what is it that we have to give sometimes time What else, your brain, your effort, sometimes you have to give up your sleep, you have to give up those, you know, very tempting brunches that people may invite you to or your friends are going out to you have to give up all of those, don't you.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:59

So that is also a form of sacrifice. Right? Sometimes you have to give money.

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

Sometimes you have to give your sleep, you have to purchase a book, you know, in the other TQ e course during the week, we have to study a particular subject and for that a book has to be used by the students. And we thought Inshallah, the book will be available from here.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:36

But sadly, it's not available anywhere. And it has to be ordered from a different country and the cost because of the fact that the Canadian dollar is very low. The cost of the book is actually $39. Okay, and we might think, Oh my God $39. So we asked the students first that would you be willing to purchase a book if it's this much money? And mashallah, they'll say yes.

00:18:37 --> 00:19:27

And these are people who are studying full time, right? Because there will be times when we have to give that extra money, where we have to drive a little bit extra, you know, where we have to stay awake, sacrifice our sleep. And when we are giving something in the way of Allah subhanaw taala it's not a loss. Is it a loss? It's not a loss. What is it? It's salmon, because Allah subhanaw taala called the wives of the believers over here, that for in Allah Azza Lille mercy, Natty min con added on Alima greater award will be given to those who sign among you. So their award for your son is your son, and the dunya if a person holds on to it, I mean, you're going to eat that brunch, that

00:19:27 --> 00:19:30

nice food and then maybe regret the rest of the day.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:44

Isn't it? Just yesterday after class, I went somewhere, and I had a burrata and oh boy, I regret it until I fell asleep at night. Seriously. So I mean, this is dunya right? It's never 100%

00:19:45 --> 00:19:57

pleasing, it's always got its problems with it. So I should have the lower unhide the wives of the prophets of Allah Islam. They were indeed very, very wise when they chose Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter.

00:19:58 --> 00:20:00

If the prophets of Allah said

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

unwanted, could he not have a lot of dunya a lot of riches he could have, right. And on one occasion the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said or Aisha, if I desire, mountains of gold and silver would walk with me. If I wanted, Allah subhanaw taala would give me so much, but I chose not to take it because no matter what it is, it's going to get left behind, and it's only going to consume us. We are not here to be consumed by the world we are here to do something so that we can have the home of the Hereafter or the little below on who he said, The world is going to turn its back away and the hereafter is coming towards us. And each of the two, the dunya and the hereafter, both have their

00:20:47 --> 00:21:16

own children, children meaning their own seekers, their desires, their inheritors. So he said be children of the Hereafter, and do not be children of this world. For indeed today is Arma and no hisab today, you're supposed to work and you're not going to be held accountable and tomorrow is hisab and normal. Tomorrow, we will be held accountable and we will not be able to do anything.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:23

So even though these verses are for the environment, the Hadith in a particular context, there is definitely a lesson for us.

00:21:24 --> 00:22:21

Yeah, Nisa No biggie. Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, Anissa No biggie, all wives or women of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now Allah addresses them directly. Man whoever yet de comes men cannot among you, meaning commits if one of you commits before he shuttin and indecency. That is MOBA Hina. That is clear. If one of you commits a clear immorality, meaning masliah of a hero commits a sin that is evident, meaning it's known or it's clearly a sin. There is no doubt that it's something wrong, whether it's major or minor. If one of you commits a sin, then Allah subhanaw taala says, You will barf it will be multiplied and in particular, you bought off doubled, Lucha for her

00:22:21 --> 00:22:38

Allah that the punishment were fine. Double the punishment would be doubled for her, were in the hereafter. Well, Canada Lika and that is Allah Allah upon Allah yesira Easy.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:41

If one of you commits a sin,

00:22:42 --> 00:22:44

then the punishment will be doubled.

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


00:22:47 --> 00:22:56

Because when your status is higher, your knowledge is greater. You're learning firsthand from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:22:57 --> 00:23:09

a sin fascia MOBA. Hina, on your part is not an ordinary sin. It's double crime. Why one crime of the action itself? And the other crime off? What?

00:23:12 --> 00:23:15

Think about it, if there is a person

00:23:16 --> 00:23:41

who doesn't know much, all right, they don't know much. And they end up doing something wrong. Like for example, a three year old drops a glass and the glass breaks. What do you do? It's okay, no problem. But if a teenager is playing with a glass, you know, tossing it up in the air and catching it. And then there is a fail, it falls and it crashes? Are they going to be held responsible? Or they're going to be yelled at?

00:23:42 --> 00:24:22

Probably right? And they may even be asked to bring the new one in its place. Clean up the mess. You see how the consequences are doubled multiplied for them. Why? Because they should have known better. They're old enough. They have no reason to act like that to behave like that. Right? They're not ignorant. So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, their status is higher, their knowledge is higher. Then we're learning firsthand from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it did not benefit them to commit fashion MOBA Hina. Now fashion will be unitary immorality has been interpreted in different ways. Alright, some said it refers to Zina some said other sins, whatever it may be Allah

00:24:22 --> 00:25:00

subhanaw taala mentions it as a clear immorality. All right, for that the punishment will be doubled. Why? Because the offense is double. How is it double offensive? Because it's wrong the action itself is wrong and secondly doesn't refer to you. You should have known better. And on the other hand, woman and whoever yet cannot she is obedient men, Kunta among you. Yuck, not from cough moonta KNUTH what does it mean? To be devoutly obedient with humility with consent

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

insistency so whoever is obedient among you, LilLah he for Allah wa rasuluh he and his messenger what time on Salah Han and she also does righteous deeds. Allah says no the her, we shall give her a draw ha her reward medulla Taney two times, once in dunya and secondly, were in the era, what our third dinner and we have prepared Lucha for her, that is on Karima.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:37

A provision that is noble, generous, beautiful, excellent.

00:25:38 --> 00:25:39

So over here,

00:25:40 --> 00:25:51

the opposite is also mentioned, that if you do good, then your award will also be double. Why? Because your sacrifice is greater.

00:25:52 --> 00:26:33

You see the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, who are they? They are role models for all women. They were not just wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but they were also more on limits. They're also teachers. So the greater the responsibility, the greater the sacrifice. And with greater sacrifice, the aged will also be greater in sha Allah. So they willingly chose the akhirah they sacrifice their dunya they let go of the comforts of this world. They took the hardships in this life for the sake of the deen they experienced hunger and thirst with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam fear and danger. And they're supported the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in every kind of

00:26:33 --> 00:27:06

difficulty. They did not leave his side, though they were given the choice when they chose the alpha. Then Allah also promised them double reward double compensation. Because who is Allah, the most fair, the most generous? Right? So it's made clear over here about the status of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it's high. And with that great status comes great responsibility. And with that great responsibility, there also comes great reward. Let's listen to the recitation.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:10
