So in these verses, we see that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, they are directly addressed over here. And they're basically given the option that you choose between Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter, or the dunya. And its luxuries, you have the choice, you make the decision for yourself. But then whatever choice you make, then stay committed to it. If it is Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter that you choose for yourself, then that is a sign on your part, and for your sacrifice for your commitment for your Ersan, Allah subhanaw taala will also reward you abundantly. And then we see that in these verses, the wives of the Prophet

00:00:42 --> 00:01:27

sallallahu Sallam are made to realize their great status in the society in the Ummah, amongst the believers, that their status is of who of the Mothers of the Believers. And so because of that great status, they also have to hold themselves to a higher moral standard also, at why because they are like role models, they are like exemplary women. How often does it happen, that whenever women are mentioned, right, the wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam there examples are mentioned. Why? Because these are women that we can relate to. These are women that we can learn many lessons from. So for example, when it comes to Aisha doula and how we learn about her knowledge when it comes to

00:01:28 --> 00:02:15

Khadija below, on how we learn about her love and her commitment to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, right, so many wives of the Prophet sallallahu said them so many lessons to learn from their lives. So in these ayat that has made clear that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are no ordinary women. But in this is a lesson for all Muslim women, that these are the best women. These are your role models. And Allah subhanaw taala gave them these commands. Why in is number 33 Right at the end, Allah subhanaw taala says in nama UD doula who Lee Eun Hee Bancomer, registered lol Bay, Toyota hirako, that Hera, Allah subhanaw taala has given you these commandments, and also some

00:02:15 --> 00:03:01

prohibitions at the same time, not to oppress you, not to limit you, not to stomp your progress so that you're not able to contribute you're not able to progress. No, it is in order to keep you pure and clean, from the filth that people produce and people hurl, at, especially those who are in the limelight. So, all of these are for your protection for your purification. You know, for example, over here in AI number 33, only when the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are told while active originator Barbuda helliya Tell Ola do not go on displaying your beauty outside, like women did in the time of ignorance meaning prior to Islam. So, basically, there should be a difference

00:03:01 --> 00:03:43

between your dressing right now, then, compared to what it was before Islam, right. And what is the dressing of a Muslim woman it is modest and in particular, what is mentioned over here is that do not flaunt your beauty do not do not display it, meaning cover it when you go outside. And the details of this, there are mentioned in Tula to note and more detail will come inshallah later on in Surah, two Liza. Now, if you think about it, why is this command given to a woman that she must cover her beauty? Is it for the purpose of oppression? No, it is for the purpose of purification for the purpose of her safety, her security. And it's in two ways for her to think properly about

00:03:43 --> 00:03:58

herself. And for also others to think correctly about her a woman's thoughts about herself. Also, if you think about it, many times women feel proud when they look modest or otherwise.

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

Seriously, when is it that women have more confidence when they feel like they're looking more attractive? And so on and so forth? I don't need to use any explicit words over here, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Right? The more revealing she is, the more skin she's exposing or the more beauty she's exposing, the more confident she is perceived as right. But if you think about it, are those clean thoughts? Is that really a clean assumption of oneself or thought about oneself? That I'm looking so attractive? Really, is this something nice that people are looking at you and thinking about your body? Thinking about your looks thinking about your eyelashes or your legs or

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

your finger or your stomach or your chest or whatever it is? Is this something pure? Is this something that befits a righteous woman? So Leotta Helcom the purpose is what Leotta he'll come to purify you. Leo's hybond como rich the El beit where you thought

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

Yako that Hera, then in the next ayah Allah subhanaw taala says what commoner and you all remember what corner see the noon at the end is of loyal feminine. All right, just as in the previous if we learned what Karna Latta Virgina All right. So what corner you remember, you recall the Word of God is from Victor and what does it mean to remember? And over here it can be understood in multiple ways. Firstly, what Goodna meaning remember, as an memorize, learn, remember mentioned as an memorize, learn, study. Then secondly, once you learn once you remember, then you remember again later on why in order to review so that you don't forget what you have learned previously.

00:05:52 --> 00:06:41

And then thirdly, you review you remember why you mentioned in order to teach others so over here, what Khurana gives us three meanings. First of all, remember, study memorize, secondly, review and thirdly, remind others meaning teach. So what Coruna you must study you must review you must teach what man that which Utila it is recited. feeble you Tichenor in your homes booth is a coil off bait because each wife of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a separate home to herself. So in your homes, whatever is recited, recited, of what? Min, a Atilla he of the verses of Allah.

00:06:42 --> 00:07:24

Meaning the Quran that is recited in your homes. You should also recite it, you should also learn it, you should also review it, you should also teach it. Who is it that will primarily recite the Quran in their homes? It was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? So for example, we learn about the fact that the Prophet sallallahu Sena would perform prayer in the night the 100. Right, he wouldn't put the 100 in the masjid. Where would he pray in his house? All right. And specifically, you know, there are narrations in Buhari in which we learned that I should have the lower Anna, she narrated that oftentimes she would be sleeping, all right, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would

00:07:24 --> 00:08:05

be performing prayer. But the house was small. And the layout was that the bed where it was placed, that was the direction of the Qibla also. So basically, when the Prophet said a lot of center would be praying, the feet of I should have the lower now would be in front of him. So when he would have to go first to God, he would touch her. Alright, in order to indicate that you can move your feet so she would move her feet and then he would do so do you understand then when he would get up, she would stretch her legs again. Now the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he is praying tahajjud and in tahajjud What is he reciting the Quran? Right. Then we also learned about my Munna below Arnhem,

00:08:05 --> 00:08:40

that how her nephew, right? Even our basketball, the lower end, when he was little, he would often once he came to spend the night over there to see how the Prophet salallahu Salam worshipped in the night. Imagine a young boy and still he wanted to learn how to Saul allah sallallahu Sallam worshiped in the night. So the Prophet salallahu Salam got up in the middle of the night in order to pray, and what happened this little boy, he also gets up, he does will do and he stands on the left side of the Prophet salallahu Salam, and the prophets of Allah is very, very gently moved him from his left side to his right side. Now again, what was the prophet saw a lot of Saddam doing in his

00:08:40 --> 00:08:47

house in the night he is performing Salah and inside out what is he reciting the Quran.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:20

I'm sure all of you have heard of that very famous narration about how I shall blower and has said that the prophets of Allah is and will place his head in my lap, and he would be reciting the Quran. And this would be while she was menstruating, right to prove that the body of a menstruating woman is not impure, right? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is spending time with his wife, and what is he doing over there? reciting the Quran. So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are told over here that you should also recite the Quran.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:32

The Rasul Allah salAllahu Salam recites it in your house, you should also recite it, you should also learn it, you should also review it and you should also pass it on.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:59

And we see Amazing that how I should have the low on her she asked the prophets of Allah Islam so many questions about the Quran. You know, for example, the ayah about his salmon yesira. Right. And Easy account and the prophets Allah Allah is going to explain to her what that meant. So so many narrations which tell us that the wives of the Prophet saw a lot of sound they really took the Quran seriously. It wasn't just the

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

duty of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to recite the Quran. And here Allah subhanaw taala addresses them directly instructing them that they must also engage in the recitation in the study of the book of Allah. This is not just something for men to do you understand? Because many times you see in the previous ayah, what is mentioned, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are told, we'll call Nephi BeautyCon. So, there are many people who will say, You know what, Muslim woman she's supposed to be in the house, right? And this Quran study that you're doing, you don't need to do it. This is the job of men. Well, over here, Allah subhanaw taala is telling the best women who are supposed to

00:10:40 --> 00:11:16

be role models for all Muslim women, what is he telling them that their purpose in life should not just be home making, it should not just be child rearing, it should not just be, you know, making their hair and looking nice for their husbands or, you know, whatever it may be. That is also part of life. I'm not saying that's not part of life. And that's not important. It is important, but you know what, you will do it even if you don't want to do it, isn't it? Like, for example, when your kids come in your life? Then what happens? You got to look after them, isn't it you don't have an option over there. When you have a house and it gets dirty, you have to clean when you have a

00:11:16 --> 00:11:32

husband and he's hungry, you got a cook, even if you don't know how to cook, you'll figure it out. You'll do it. But when it comes to the Quran, when it comes to the vicar of Allah, how often is it that we find ourselves saying, I don't know when to do this? I'm just so busy.

00:11:33 --> 00:12:18

I don't know how to make time for it. So in these ayat that is made clear that women must must make time for what for the recitation of the Quran for the study of the Quran for reviewing the Quran, because the best women were instructed to do that was called nama youth laffy booty Kana. Minaya Tila, but it's not just the Ayat of Allah that You should be studying, reviewing. Also, in addition to that, well Hikmah and wisdom. What is wisdom referring to over here? The words of wisdom, the teachings of the deen, basically taught by who? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So hikma refers to, because hikmah is basically putting things where they belong. That's one of the

00:12:18 --> 00:12:27

definitions of hikma. All right. So how to practically implement a command of Allah that also requires what hikma

00:12:28 --> 00:13:10

because you're putting knowledge into action, where it belongs in the right way. That is hikma. Now how is it that you have to implement the commands of Allah which are in the Quran? Where do you learn that from? From the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the word hikma is used for sunnah also. All right. And just as I point over here, you know, many times it happens that we learn about this is right, this is wrong. This is right, this is wrong. Okay. And then we want the world to be black and white. Also. We want everything in life to be black and white ultimate. When we go out and we see, well, life is not exactly black and white, isn't it? So then what do you need over

00:13:10 --> 00:13:33

there? hikma to be able to approach the situation correctly? Right? So that we're actually doing Dawa. We're not actually turning people away from Islam. And you learn that wisdom from WHO? From the Prophet salallahu Salam? By studying the Sunnah by studying Hadith. By studying the seal of the Prophet salallahu Salam, you really learn wisdom. Let me give you an example.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:52

Remember the man who came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a young man and he said, allow me to do Zina. You know about that story? Okay. He came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said, allow me to have * out of marriage. All right, he asked for that permission. What's the right answer?

00:13:54 --> 00:14:03

What's the right answer? No, haram, isn't it? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam could have said that? What did he do?

00:14:04 --> 00:14:26

He said, Would you like it? If somebody wanted to do that with so and so with so and so with so and so he logically explained to him how bad this action is, until eventually and the prophets Allah, Allah said, I made dua for him until eventually that boy, that man, he said, I'm okay. I don't need permission. I'm not going to do this. That is hikma.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:42

And ask Allah for hikma. Because if we don't have hikma be able to put knowledge into practice correctly, properly at the right time in the right way. We could really cause damage.

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

Really, we could and many times we do when we become overzealous when we become extremely you know emotional about certain things. You know, just the other day what happened? My son is in school and every other day he comes in says this is haram haram you I'm like you're turning into haram police.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:22

Where did you learn that from? My daughter, of course, little girl. She loves all princesses and everything okay? Even though she's never watched anything, but because this is what she sees, you know, amongst her friends, this is what she sees. Wherever she goes, she likes it and she just talks about it. That's it. That's all she can do. Poor girl. Right? Anyway, she was saying something and my son said, princesses are haram.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:28

I'm like, where did you learn that from? Who told you that?

00:15:30 --> 00:15:31

He said, because they are Shame, shame.

00:15:33 --> 00:16:16

I'm like, Okay, I understand. And I explained to him, you know, that we don't use the word haram for everything. Okay, we can say that, yes, they're not dressed properly. But at the same time, you know, we can't say things like that. We have to be careful. I was just thinking if you want to say that, in front of, you know, people who are not very religiously inclined, they would think what kind of a mother is she? Right? What is she teaching her children? Don't get me wrong over here. I'm not saying go dress up like those princesses. I'm just making a point here that we need to be careful about labeling things right left and center haram haram haram. We have to be very, very

00:16:16 --> 00:17:03

careful. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not teach the deen like that. You know this violent way of practicing the deen or of teaching the deen or if taking the deen to others. This contradicts Hikmah it doesn't invite people to Islam. It turns people away from Islam. So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are taught over here to pay special attention to what? To what? To the heck ma to the way in which the Prophet salallahu Salam is practicing the deen teaching the deen pay a special attention to that in the Lucha indeed Allah, Ghana he is ever lovely fun. He is subtle. He is hobby Iran he is acquainted. He is acquainted aware of all things, even the most hidden secrets

00:17:03 --> 00:17:12

you cannot hide from him. So in this ayah in particular, what is the emphasis on use your time productively?

00:17:14 --> 00:17:21

You see the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they had the privilege of learning from the Prophet salallahu Salam around the clock

00:17:22 --> 00:17:56

in the very house, right? The Sahaba they could only learn from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when they were in the masjid or when they were outside and besides, they couldn't come in the house of the prophets of Allah Islam. They couldn't be there. You know, the relatives would come like for example or model Dulo or and who have avacado doula one who, right Abdullah bin or Allah you know the relatives would come but every Sahabi couldn't come abou they did not blow our new couldn't come like that, isn't it? So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are told over here, that they're in that you learn directly from the Prophet salallahu Salam in your own house. That is an Amana on

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

you. It's a privilege that you're being given. Take this seriously. And take this Amana of Elm and hikma to others also. And we see that the wives of the Prophet salallahu Salam they became the best mobile li hot they became the best more unlimited. You know, women who conveyed women who talks

00:18:19 --> 00:18:44

because Allah subhanaw taala gave them this hokum and the thing is that many times, you know, women are concerned about their children, for example, learning the Quran. I want my son to memorize the Quran. I want my daughter to study the Quran. I want my son to study physics. I want my daughter to study this. Right? Very good. And while we are concerned about teaching our children, we should also be concerned about educating who ourselves.

00:18:46 --> 00:19:16

So MIT comm there was a lecture I heard recently, I can't remember what she was, but he was talking about relationships within the family. And he's like, especially within cultures, it's very popular for them to be like, you know, we must make our sons memorize the Quran, we must make them learn, we must make them do this. And this, and the daughter's education is kind of like, okay, she can do it, but it's usually pushed aside. But he's like, for the future of our families. It's better the daughters are taught because they're going to be future mothers, who's going to be teaching your children, the Quran, who's going to be teaching them the way to practice Islam? It is the mothers.

00:19:16 --> 00:19:53

So if anything, the importance should be put on your daughter's education of Islam and the deen because they are going to be teaching your future generations. Yeah, very true. And even otherwise, women's education should not be neglected. You know, recently somebody was asking me about why they were pursuing a particular degree and they had questions about whether they should even pursue it and I said, Of course you should. Because Inshallah, one day you will be a mother and your children should know that their mother is well educated. Right? They should be able to trust their mother. Because a mother who speaks with knowledge, who speaks with confidence, who is trusted by her

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

children, when she will tell her children about Allah about the Quran about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they will

00:20:00 --> 00:20:28

I listen to her. And if they know their mother, as a woman who doesn't even know basics of chemistry of biology of simple things, then children don't even look up to their parents. I'm not saying that that attitude on the part of children is correct. But I'm just saying that it just so happens to be the case. So, in this eye, it's clear how important it is for women to be educated, for women to be educated, especially with regards to their Deen.

00:20:29 --> 00:21:09

Go ahead. Yesterday, I was thinking about how the wives of the Prophet saw it. So they shared such intimate details of their lives. And that would have taken so much like courage and also like that openness to totally for, like to share that for the sake of Allah, so other people can benefit. And I was like, where did that come from? You know, how did they know to share that? And I guess it's from here. This is the reason exactly. I mean, the details that we learn about, you know, for example, the correct method of whistle, for instance, after the state of Geneva, how a person should do whistle, how the prophets of Allah would even sleep, you know, on his right side, with his hand

00:21:09 --> 00:21:37

placed under his cheek, the doors that he would read before going to sleep, his habits, when he would wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning, how he would wake up how he would worship Allah subhanaw taala. These were all very intimate private details, which the attachment the HELOC didn't keep to themselves. They told others why? Because this was an Amana on them. As Allah subhanaw taala makes clear over here, that word coroner, you must mention it to others.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:59

And you see the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I mean, one could argue if a woman is married, you know, she's got children, she's got a husband, she's got a house to look after. Why should she do this? Study the Quran study the Sunnah. Why do this? Why isn't it like putting a burden on a woman?

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

Seriously, because many times women, what do they want that once they're married wants to have children than they should have no commitments at all, isn't it? I'm not saying that the only way of reviewing the Quran is that if you're committed to a course or anything like that, the point I'm making here is that after you're married, especially you need to be in touch with the Quran. You must be connected with the Quran. This is essential for married life. Because married life has its challenges. It has its challenges. It's not like you're living happily ever after. Okay? It's got its spokes and pricks it's going to hurt you it's going to annoy you. There's different things that

00:22:43 --> 00:23:11

are going to bother you the person whom you thought you loved. Now you you're doubting yourself you're doubting the other person that children you thought you love them what's going on, you just feel like quitting and running away. Every day brings its new set of challenges. So in order to deal with real life challenges, what do you need in your life? The book of Allah this is essential in married life. Did you want to say something?

00:23:13 --> 00:23:48

So I got permission from my teacher that I can listen to you know Subhanallah whenever they read one page, you know on the daily basis your children Yeah, my boys when they read as Oh Subhan Allah, this is my one of my favorite verse, right? Okay, Mama, do you want me to highlight it on your on your Quran? Yes, please. There's a tough Allah. Mama, there's so many are highlighted here. So they decided right, you know, your mama likes it. Okay, let's go inside when I tell them the meanings also. So some of the meanings, some they also you know, they can retain it exactly. Because how often does it happen that when you're teaching children, you are telling their children Okay, review

00:23:48 --> 00:23:53

your lesson, read your Quran, read the lesson that you're supposed to they will read and they will say what does it mean?

00:23:55 --> 00:24:08

What does it mean? Right? I remember I saw a child once. A long time ago, he was reading Quran and he was asking his teacher, what does it mean? And the teacher said, don't ask me that. Just read.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:18

I have witnessed this myself. And that child struggled so much with reading because he wanted to know what it meant.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:58

So many times, the mother is also asked about what does this mean? What does that mean? So as mothers we have to instill the love of the book of Allah in the hearts of our children, how can we do that if we don't read Quran ourselves? If we don't understand it ourselves if we are not passionate about the Quran ourselves. So when COULDNA This is advice for women keep connected with the book of Allah with the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, even if you are single or you're married or you have children or you don't have children, whatever is going on in your life, keep in touch with the book of Allah.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:35

And Allah subhanaw taala says in Al Muslimeen indeed the Muslim men, while Muslim ad and the Muslim women and Muslim mean plural of Muslim Muslim Act is a poor love Muslimah while more meaning and the believing men while more Minette and the believing women, meaning plural of men, me now to deploy off Mina, first who is mentioned, the Muslim men and women, and then who's mentioned, the more men men and women onto the same Muslim movement isn't the same.

00:25:37 --> 00:26:17

They can be used in the same way. But there is also a slight difference between them depending on the context that the words are being used in. But basically, if you think about it, Gibreel when he asked the Prophet salatu salam, What is Islam? How did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam explain it? The five pillars of Islam, right? shahada, Salah, Zakka, Hajj fasting, right. So this is Islam, Islam is what? Outward submission outward submission meaning when a person is visibly a Muslim why because he's doing the actions that a Muslim is supposed to do. Because Islam means surrender.

00:26:18 --> 00:27:07

So in non Muslim in wellness Lee met who are the Ideal Muslim men an Ideal Muslim women, those who do what Muslims are supposed to do Muslim meanwhile Muslim add one more mini in one more minute. Who are more men what men Eman and what is a man that you believe in Allah, His messengers, his angels his books Divine Decree hereafter. Right the Six Pillars of faith and where's Eman? It is in the heart. So the Muslim men, Muslim women who are outwardly submitted and the believing men believing women who are spiritually committed also. There is the man in the heart. It's not just a word empty actions hollow from inside. No. Spiritually committed. They are from within. They're doing it with

00:27:07 --> 00:27:24

love with faith. Well carnitine well Karnataka, carnitine, plural of Carnot unattached plural of carnita from the word Knut cough noon. And what does that mean? To be humbly, devoutly consistently obedient?

00:27:25 --> 00:27:45

So they don't just obey Allah subhanaw taala half heartedly whenever they feel like it, no, with humility, with consistency with love and adoration, men and women both was Saudi peein was Saudi called Saudi oil of Sadhak saw the cards plural of saw the

00:27:47 --> 00:28:25

men who speak the truth and the women who speak the truth, meaning they're truthful in their speech, truthful in their faith, truthful, honest in their actions, meaning their actions, their dealings are free from hypocrisy. They show what they really are. They do what they really mean to they say what is truly in the heart. Well saw beteen was sabe ra Acerbity employed of Sabi Sabi rock floor love Sabirah the men who are patient and the women who are patient, when in difficult times, because there are difficulties in life,

00:28:26 --> 00:29:04

aren't there? Does life get difficult ever? Are there times when you don't get your breakfast? The breakfast that you wanted? Are there times when you don't get your coffee? Coffee that you want it? That is a point of saga, really is that we don't go on fussing about it I end up my coffee, this French doses have burnt, I can't have this and fine I'm going hungry again. That is not suburb, suburb even at the smallest difficulties. Some are in difficult times. Then some are also in obedience. Somewhere in obedience. Yes, because sometimes obedience also becomes difficult.

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

Doesn't it? Like for example if you're fasting?

00:29:09 --> 00:30:00

Doesn't the fast eventually feel very long? Don't you feel tired and hungry? Doesn't that require suburb that you keep your fast until you complete it?

00:30:54 --> 00:31:14

The men who do vicar of Allah, a lot with Akira, and also the women who do a lot of vict

00:32:47 --> 00:33:10

how often do they remember ALLAH very frequently? Why? Because it is ultimately the vicar of Allah that feeds the hearts. For such people, the Allahu Allah whom Allah has prepared for them, Mo feel I've done forgiveness, what I do on Alima, and a great reward, meaning Allah will reward them fully.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:42

In this ayah, what do we see? The Ideal Muslim men and the Ideal Muslim women are described? What are their characteristics, because we see over here, as the men are described, women are described at the same time. So these are the most prominent, significant features of a Muslim community. This is how Muslim men are like, this is how Muslim women are like, and we all need to check ourselves that when it comes to these characteristics, how many of these do I find in myself? Which one of these? am I lacking in?

00:33:43 --> 00:34:09

That I need to work on? Make a list of all of these characteristics? How many are there? Let's count them firstly, Muslim meanwhile, Muslim, Islam. Secondly, amen. Thirdly, of Knuth fourthly, of sick, then Sabra, then, who sure then sadaqa then some then hefele For rouge, and then the vicar of Allah, how many

00:34:11 --> 00:34:38

10 For such people, Allah has prepared for them forgiveness, and a great reward, the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said MUFA don't have gone ahead. MUFA rydoo they've just gotten ahead of everybody. And the Sahaba said Who are they? He had a suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said there are men and women who remember Allah much. Those are the ones who have excelled.

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

Because every deed when it is done with the vicar of Allah, then what happens? It becomes more beautiful. It becomes more beautiful. So these are the characteristics of the Ideal Muslim men and Ideal Muslim women. There is an Irishman in which we learned that one some women asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that many times

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

Men are mentioned in the Quran.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:45

And by the way, when men are mentioned in the Quran, it's not just that those verses are exclusively talking about men, unless there is an evidence that shows that those verses are exclusively about men, when masculine plural is used, it can refer to men as well as women. All right. But the question was, how can women are not mentioned? So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this is to show that when it comes to piety when it comes to good deeds, that there is equality between men and women, because every good deed that a man can do, like the good deeds that are mentioned over here, unless it's something that's specific to the role of a man, when it comes to piety in relation to Allah

00:35:45 --> 00:36:31

subhanaw taala, then there's a quality than men and women are equal. It's not that men are greater, and women are less are the other way around. Go ahead. So generally, I was thinking that women usually focus on those two points, or two, three points that Allah has given men, a priority over a woman in the world needs is a sense. But we always forget that, indeed, there's equality in men and women, right? And we don't focus on that. But we focus on those one or two situations where it's the other way around Exactly. When it comes to spirituality when it comes to being a servant of Allah, then no person has preference over the other due to gender, race, age or anything like that. That

00:36:31 --> 00:37:10

preference is with what with the Aqua, because in a chroma coma in the Llahi, a taco, so what we should really be concerned about is our relation with who? Allah subhanaw taala not that we are competing with other people, and we're like, No, I want to be better in this way, I will be better if I do this, no, I will be better if I become a better servant to to Allah subhanaw taala a person's rank is increased by his servitude to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what this ayah reminds us of. I recently had a discussion with my younger brother, about you know, a lot of things like why do people have such you know, sometimes warped thoughts about Islam and the commandments of

00:37:10 --> 00:37:41

Islam? And Allah Subhana Allah, and a lot of the ones obviously, like the ones that are pertaining to the women, you're why are they so constantly upset? Why are they targeting them all the time. And the conclusion the two of us came to was that it's because our perspective is towards the world, all of these qualities that we're given, they're also not talking about worldly success. They're not talking about qualities that will make you successful in this world. They're talking about qualities that will make you successful in the hereafter. So as long as your focus is the hereafter, all of the commands that Allah has given, make sense. And even if we don't understand them, ourselves, we

00:37:41 --> 00:38:15

accept them because we realize that you know, the focus of this life, this world is the hereafter. As soon as the world becomes our priority. Nothing matters like we're, you know, upset about everything. This command makes no sense in this world, in this context, so on and so forth. But as soon as our focus is towards the hereafter, as soon as we prioritize that, everything just falls into place. Exactly. And we see, for example, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, their focus was the hereafter that will occur, right? Then what happened? Did Allah subhanaw taala not grant them worldly success? Also, he did. You know, the Prophet sallallahu said, and he said to his

00:38:15 --> 00:38:55

wives, that the first of you to meet me, meaning the first of you to die after me will be the one with the longest hand, all right, and the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after his death, they would every so often, you know, measure their hand against each other to see whose arm or hand was the biggest or the longest arm and Xena it'll do a lot more on how she was the first one to pass away. And that is when they understood what the prophets of Allah said and meant by longhand that the one who is the most generous she was known for her generosity famous for her generosity. All right, we think oh, you know what? I can't spend much because you know what, I'm a woman because I'm

00:38:55 --> 00:39:14

not supposed to work who said you cannot work who said you cannot make your own money who said that with the money that you get you cannot spend in the way of Allah where there's a will there is a way let's listen to the recitation was called nama Utila fie mu you Deacon me mean
