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

Allah says in verse number seven, that I'm thorough, do you not see meaning do you not know Have you not understood? Have you not considered Have you not reflected on this fact? That Anila Yarlung will that indeed Allah knows math is somehow a wealthy woman fill out whatever that is in the skies and whatever that is in the earth, there is nothing that is unknown to Allah. So much so, that may your Cornermen Najwa, there is no Najwa, Salah 13 of three, meaning a Najwa of three people in law except who he is meaning ALLAH is a law of beer home, the forests of them Robair, fourth one are bath four. So he is the force of that group, meaning he is witnessing that group just as somebody else would be

00:00:57 --> 00:01:38

sitting with you, in your group, witnessing it, listening to every word you're saying. Allah subhanaw taala is the force in that group of three people that are busy in a Najwa. The question is, what is Najwa Najwa is from the root letters noon gene. Well, we have done this word earlier a long time ago. So it's good to repeat it. The word Najwa is from noon gene well and Najwa Najwa tone Najwa with a timer buta a noun Najwa is a raised plateau meaning a place that is high compared to the rest of the place that is around it. And if you think about it, a raised plateau, everyone is not able to reach it,

00:01:39 --> 00:02:00

isn't it so, everyone is not able to climb and go on top of it. There are many people who will come to see a mountain, but they will not dare to climb the mountain. Right. So Najwa is that which is distinct and separate, meaning a conversation in which everyone is not welcome?

00:02:01 --> 00:02:23

Just like arrays plateau, everyone cannot make it there. Najwa is a private discussion, a private conversation in which everyone is not welcomed, meaning you will not do it openly and publicly, you will not hold the conversation with everybody, you will do it with only a select few. This is Najwa.

00:02:25 --> 00:03:07

And you see raised plateau, meaning something that's high. And for some reason, we feel that if we are included in a private conversation, we're so special. If somebody whispers to us, well, I'm so special and so important. They're sharing their secret with me. Alright, so Najwa is also when people come together and they whisper to each other. It says if they're revealing their secrets, or they are discussing a very top secret plan, this isn't a joke. So Allah says that there is no Najwa of three people in law who are robbing a womb, except that he is the fourth of them. When a hum satin, nor have five people meaning a Najwa of just five people, a secret conversation in which only

00:03:07 --> 00:04:05

five people are a part of INLA except who are sadly, so whom he is the six of them. Wala and nor Adonai means Alec less than that, less than what less than three or five, which would mean see two numbers are mentioned over here, right? That there is no Najwa of three, except that he is the fourth of them, then there is no Najwa of five except that he is the six of them. So less than three and less than five, less than three would mean to less than five would mean for one actor nor more than that more than three for more than five, six, basically any number of people, whether they are very few, or there are many.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:18

Because sometimes there could be a secret shared between, let's say a few 100 People even right. So there is no Najwa no secret private conversation,

00:04:19 --> 00:04:25

except that ALLAH subhanaw taala is Illa who Amar except that he is with them.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:59

He is witnessing that conversation, he is hearing he can listen to every word that is being said. So may you not be home then he will inform them be ma AMILO of that which they did when yomo piano on the Day of Judgment in Allaha be cliche in Arlene because indeed Allah is of everything, all knowing what is this is teaching us that every conversation of ours is witnessed by Allah. The most private conversations even the most a

00:05:00 --> 00:05:37

intimate conversations even whoever we may have that conversation with, with a friend, or a family member, or someone that we should not technically be sharing those feelings with, right or someone whom we should not be talking to, in the way that we are talking to them and so whatever that conversation is, whoever it is with, whether it is right or wrong, good or evil, appropriate or inappropriate, based on truth or based on lies based on sincerity or based on sin, whatever kind of Najwa it may be, it is not hidden from Allah.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:53

So every time we feel like whispering to someone realize that who else is listening? Allah, you see, these words are so amazing. There is no network of three except that ALLAH is the force of them. He's there.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:59

So have that conversation knowing that Allah is listening.

00:06:00 --> 00:06:14

He knows and so to Toba is 78, Allah says Allah may Allah Allah mu, and Allah Allah, Allah Mozilla homeowner Juha whom? Do they not know that Allah knows their secrets? And their Najwa? Their private conversations?

00:06:15 --> 00:06:40

Now, if you think about it many times in family feuds, right, because earlier a family issue was mentioned. What happens? groups form? Isn't it? groups form 40s form? And then each group is having their private discussions. And many times in these private discussions, what's going on backbiting false accusations? mockery? Isn't it?

00:06:42 --> 00:06:48

Just because someone is willing to hear to listen to us? It doesn't mean that it's okay for us to say that.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:59

Just because someone is willing to engage in that evil conversation with us that sinful conversation with us doesn't mean it's okay for us to do it. Because Allah is listening.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:09

When it comes to many social problems also, or for instance, in the workplace or within friends, then what happens? private discussions?

00:07:10 --> 00:07:16

Isn't it private emails, or, for instance, behind closed doors, private discussions?

00:07:18 --> 00:07:40

What this is teaching us is that no matter what Najwa it is, we must be careful. We must be fearful of Allah. That while yes, the other party those people, those whom we are not friends with are those who were opposing or those who were not happy with yes, they may not be listening. But who is listening? Allah is listening

00:07:41 --> 00:08:08

into the Zakharov is at Allah says me i Simona and Nan Lana, smo Silla home wanna do at home? Do they think that we do not listen to their sister and their Najwa their secrets and their private conversations? Do they think that we don't listen to them? Of course we listen to them, Bella, of course we do. We're also Luna, Allah de umiak. To Boone an hour, our angels are right next to them, writing everything, taking notes, of whatever we're saying.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:24

And I'm Tara, do you not see meaning? Have you not considered Have you not thought about this? Even Medina about those people who know who they were forbidden on in Najwa. From private conversations.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:51

People who were forbidden from having the secret private conversations, why were they forbidden? Because in general, remember, Najwa is something that is not really liked. Why? It doesn't mean that Najwa is forbidden completely. It's haram, we're not allowed to have private conversations. We are. But in general, they are not really liked. Why?

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

What do you think the reason is?

00:08:56 --> 00:08:59

Think about it. Most of the time, go ahead.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:13

Very true. It causes division within families, within communities within groups of people who are working together. Right? Because what does it mean? I'm going to tell you something, but I'm not going to tell them.

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

Right. So it's us versus them. Immediately it creates division. What else? Yes.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:32

Yeah, very true. That it can lead to sin very easily.

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

Very easily. I mean, think about it. If it was something good, then why would we say it openly? Why is there a need to whisper something into somebody's ear? Generally, why is there a need to do that? Because it's gonna offend the other person. Right? So not all Najwa are evil, but most of the time when we do whisper things, or when we do have these private discussions, are they really positive or not?

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

If there are negative whales

00:10:05 --> 00:10:17

Yes, Allah subhanaw taala says la hierba, fika Theoden manage? Well, there is no good in most of their private conversations. No good. They're void of good.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:23

And you see, generally even if you if you see somebody whispering, does that bother you?

00:10:24 --> 00:11:05

It bothers me even in class when I see people whispering I wonder, what is it that so important that cannot wait? What is it? Or if for instance, you're sitting at a table with different people, and then one person whispered something into the other person's ear, and then both of them smile, you wonder, what are they smiling at? Is there something wrong with me? Is there something on my face? You know, what's wrong? Or did I miss out on something? What's going on? So it creates bad feelings. So we learned that in Medina, remember that we have learned about this earlier and sort of danessa also in sort of the Toba also, that how the hypocrites were the ones who would typically hold

00:11:05 --> 00:11:26

private conversations, meaning as a Muslim would be walking by, they would just stand and whisper something into each other's ears. And this would make certain people feel very insecure. Right? So what happened is that the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam, forbade people from Najwa

00:11:27 --> 00:11:41

that if you are in a public place, and somebody is right there, then you cannot whisper into somebody else's ear. You can't do that. It's not allowed, because it creates bad feelings, it creates insecurity. So there is no need to do that.

00:11:43 --> 00:12:21

And even Kathy, he writes that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a peace treaty with the youth and when one of the companions of the Prophet saw the love when he was on would pass by a gathering of the Jews that would speak among themselves in secret, prompting the believer to think that they were plotting to kill or harm him. So when the believer saw this, he feared for his safety, and changed the fact that he was taking. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised them to abandon their evil secret talks, but they didn't do that. They continued holding their Najwa so Allah says that olam Thora l Alladhina. No who aren't in Najwa they were forbidden from Najwa. So

00:12:21 --> 00:12:42

my rule Duna then they return Lima, Anna, who are unable to that which they were forbidden from. They were clearly forbidden from doing this, yet. They did it. They did it. And this is something that doesn't fit a believer. Our wish should be somewhere in our authority. If we are told to do something or not do something. Yes, we obey.

00:12:43 --> 00:13:30

A believer the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a believer is like a tethered camel. A tethered camel. Wherever it is taken it yields. If it's made to sit down, it sits down. If it's parked somewhere, it just sits down. That's it. That's how the camel is. And when it is told get up and leave, the camera will go. This is how a believer is submissive and compliant. But here we see them when I 15. They were clearly forbidden. Still, they went back to that which they were forbidden from they did it anyway. With an eye Jonah and they whisper they converse secretly amongst themselves about what Bill is me regarding sin will or Dhwani and transgression when mausolea to

00:13:30 --> 00:14:02

Rasul and disobedience to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet the now Jonah bill is mean the bow over here can be understood in two ways. Firstly, back can be understood as a containing having meaning their private conversations have words or discussions that are based on what sin? What is sin, an action that harms a person or the one aggression, meaning something that would harm somebody else.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:08

And thirdly, they will discuss as to how they will disobey the Prophet sallallahu already was.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:16

So the first meaning of that is that Najwa their private conversations would contain this kind of evil.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:43

It wasn't good stuff they were discussing. It was sin, aggression, offense, disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is what they would discuss amongst themselves. And Bear over here secondly, can also be understood as in meaning when they held their private conversations. What were they committing? They were committing sin.

00:14:44 --> 00:14:51

Firstly, they were committing if and they were harming themselves. Secondly, they were committing or the one hurting others.

00:14:53 --> 00:15:00

By having a private conversation, what were they doing committing sin and secondly, harming other

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

People are

00:15:01 --> 00:15:46

hurting their feelings. And thirdly, they were disobeying the prophets of Allah who already was salam because the prophets on the Lahore knew send them forbade them from having this Najwa so when they had their Najwa anyway, what were they doing this obeying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what either uka and then when they come to you, these people when they come to you and this is specifically about the goon, when they come to you hi yoga, they would greet you hi yoga from higher the haga the here is greeting, so high yoke and they would greet you Bhima with that which means that greeting which lum you hi Yuka he did not greet you be with it meaning with that greeting

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

Allahu Allah. They greet you with the greeting that Allah did not greet you with.

00:15:54 --> 00:15:57

They greet you with a greeting that Allah did not teach you.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:16

Meaning they make up their own greeting. They change the greeting that Allah has taught. What is the greeting that Allah has taught a Salam or Aleikum. So they changed it. They changed it to what Assam Ali Khan, which means death be on you.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:42

So when they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is how they would read him. Were coluna and they say fie unfussy him in their hearts. Lola you are the boon Allah who be men according Why does Allah not punish us for what we say? This is what they would think in their hearts that here we are saying to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam death to be on you.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:46

And nothing happens to us.

00:16:47 --> 00:17:11

So they would think that you know what, he must not be a prophet. Because if he were a prophet, and we said to him death beyond you, then certainly God would punish us, since God didn't punish us, then what does it mean? He must not be a Prophet. Allah says has boom Jahannam sufficient for them is *, meaning their crimes are not going to be

00:17:12 --> 00:17:20

honored, being punished immediately. You understand? You see if somebody says something really silly to you,

00:17:22 --> 00:17:30

you say, I'm not going to honor that with a response. Right? Meaning I'm going to completely ignore it. It's not worth my attention.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:39

So this is how these people are their crimes are so lowly that they are not worth attention.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:55

So what will suffice them? * has boom jahannam? Yes, loaner have Vishal enter to burn it for bid sell, mislead. So What a wretched destination it is, what a terrible place it is to end up in

00:17:56 --> 00:18:36

the shadow the long run her she reported that once some Jews came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, remember that in Medina, there were certain Jewish tribes that resided over there, and the Prophet salallahu Salam had a peace treaty with them. But every now and then they violated the treaty. And this is what we will see in sort of how shall also that how it particular tribe of them had to be eventually exiled from Medina. Why because of their violation. And these are the things that they would do. On the surface, they would appear to be very nice and friendly. But behind closed doors, what would they do backbite and privately discussed as to how to hurt the Prophet

00:18:36 --> 00:18:50

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they would market him and market the Muslims. And when they would come to him, this is what they would do. They would say Assam Aleikum, so once they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they said, I will call sin Assam Alikum.

00:18:52 --> 00:18:59

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got it that they didn't say a Salam they said Assam. So he said, Why don't they come?

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

And the same on you? So I should have the long one here. You can imagine what happened to her. She was sitting there she got extremely angry. And she didn't just say Assam Aleikum Wa alaykum she added to it. She said, why Lake Como Sam Alana and Henault, on and on. Right? She went on and on because she was angry that How dare you say this to the prophets of Allah or do sadhana? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Why did you say that? Do not use harsh words. And I should have learned, I said, Didn't you hear what they said? And he said, Yes, I did. But I did not respond to them by dirtying my tongue by using harsh words in return. I just said Warren Aiko, same

00:19:45 --> 00:19:49

to you, whatever you say to me, same to you.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

Now in this is a very important thing has been brought to our attention that how the real problem was that they would say

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

Why does Allah not punish us? If we are doing something wrong? How come we're not being punished?

00:20:08 --> 00:20:19

And you see many times when people are disobeying Allah clearly contradicting Allah's commands. How do they justify it? Well, I must be doing something right because everything's working for me.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:54

Right? If I'm really doing something wrong, why isn't God punishing me? The fact that he's not punishing me means that I'm right. The Sunnah began with a family problem with the mention of a family problem. And many times, this happens within families, where one is abusing the other taking advantage of the other, clearly contradicting the Quran and Sunnah. And then how does he justify Well, I must be right. I must be right because everything's working for me. If I was wrong, God must have punished me. This is how many times people will justify their crimes, their sins.

00:20:55 --> 00:21:12

What does Allah say hassleholm Jahannam your SLO na for bit cinema sleeves. Yeah, are you Alladhina amanu Oh, you will have believed either tunnel jatim When you do Converse privately, meaning if you must do so,

00:21:13 --> 00:21:38

if you must do so when you do Converse privately. Then remember some rules. Firstly, follow that an agile bill if me what are the 21 masliah to Rasul then do not converse about sin and aggression and disobedience to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning amongst your private conversations, you shouldn't be encouraging each other to commit sin, justifying each other's wrongdoing.

00:21:40 --> 00:22:30

Know when you are having private conversations, don't backbite don't commit sin. Don't discuss and plan as to how you're going to disobey the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what an agile instead, you should Converse privately about what bilberry about righteousness, what Taqwa and piety, this is what your private conversations should be about. Because while it is good to discuss these matters, openly righteousness, good deeds, it is good to discuss them openly. It is better to discuss them privately. Why? Because then they will be more sincere. So for example, if you are intending to give some charity, for instance, all right, and you cannot decide whether you should give it in cause a

00:22:30 --> 00:23:02

or Cosby. Alright, so let's say you put it up on your Facebook status. Hey, guys, I'm planning to give $2,000 Right? My first paycheck in charity, should I give it here? Or should I give it there? Technically, it's okay if your intention is sincere. But it would be better to have this conversation with who with a friend or two in private. Why? Because it would help you keep your intention sincere.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:04

It's better for you.

00:23:06 --> 00:23:53

And also, let's say you are planning to help out and individual, let's say your cousin, right. There are in need of some financial help. So you are thinking about helping them financially. So again, you should have this private discussion with who one or two people maximum, not the whole world don't publicize it, because it would be good for their honor also. So what an agile Bill busy what Taqwa What duckula hala de la hito. Sharon, and fear Allah, the One to whom you shall all be gathered. So in this ayah, what is it that we are being taught that learn from other people's behavior? Avoid the wrongs that they do you see some people doing wrong in their private

00:23:53 --> 00:24:29

conversations, don't repeat that you should not do that. If your true believers then do not imitate them in the wrong ways. In them and Najwa indeed, Najwa is only minutes che long from shaitan. Meaning the urge to have a private conversation in which you're going to backbite someone you're going to attack someone's honor, you're gonna make fun of somebody. This is from Wu, this is an encouragement and incitement from shaitan. And what does this lead to? Leah Zuna, in order that he may grieve Alladhina amanu those people who believe

00:24:30 --> 00:24:59

let's say you're sitting in a public gathering, let's say a wedding, you're sitting over there, and you see somebody wearing something that you find very unique, right? So your sister sitting next to you, you whisper into her ear, something about that dress, alright, even if it may not be something negative, right? You're just having this Najwa this urge is from who this urge is from shaitan because when that person will see

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

You whispering into your sister's ear? How is that person going to feel happy or worried, worried and grieved and sad. So Leah Zuna Alladhina amanu. Through these private conversations these whisperings shaitan brings grief to the believers. He wants believers to be sad. Remember, this is Shavon school. He loves to see believers sad. Because when a person is sad, they can go down very quickly.

00:25:33 --> 00:26:20

They can begin to despair. They can begin to feel negative thoughts about Allah or think negative thoughts about other people. Their thinking turns from positive to negative. So shaitan loves to see believers said, Leah Zuna Alladhina amanu he causes them worry. Well, Asa Billa Rahim che but the fact is that children cannot harm them anything at all, not even a little bit. Ellerbee isn't Allah except by the permission of Allah. So if ever you find yourself in a situation where you feel that other people are whispering about something, and you feel excluded, you feel left out, or you feel that they might be talking about you, then you should know that no harm can reach you except by the

00:26:20 --> 00:26:31

permission of Allah. Wa and Allah He and upon Allah failure to what killing me know the believers must rely. The believers must rely upon who,

00:26:32 --> 00:26:33

one Allah,

00:26:34 --> 00:26:49

that nothing can hurt me, nothing can harm me, except by Allah's permission. So you know, when people can whisper all they want, people can talk about all they want, they can market me all they want, but nothing can harm me, unless and until Allah allows.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:01

Now, this teaches us an important lesson, that we must be careful about other people's feelings. If we really need to have energy well,

00:27:02 --> 00:27:19

whether you're sitting in the car, or you're sitting in a classroom, you're at the dinner table, you're at a party, no matter where you are, if there is a need to have a nudge Well, please be considerate of other people's feelings. Even children,

00:27:20 --> 00:27:40

don't exclude other people out of conversations, when you're sitting with so many people don't exclude certain people from that conversation. And what are the different ways in which people are excluded? Firstly, by whispering into other people's ears. Secondly, by speaking a different language.

00:27:41 --> 00:28:19

Right speaking a different language that's really annoying. So we have to be careful about that. And if you must speak in a different language than you can translate or if you did it by accident, then you must switch back immediately. Alright, into a language that can be understood by everybody be considerate of other people's feelings, because if we're not considerate, this is going to cause sadness to other believers, this is going to hurt their feelings. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when you are three persons sitting together, then no two of you should hold secret counsel, excluding the third person.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:33

If it's three of you, three people sitting somewhere, then two people should not have in Java, excluding the third person, you should not do that. Until you are with some other people to

00:28:34 --> 00:28:56

meaning there is an exception, that if there is a large group of people, and in that, you know, you just you don't whisper but you speak in a soft voice to the person sitting next to you because you can't keep announcing everything, right? Because it's possible that it's not relevant to everybody. And if you keep talking loudly, then how are other people going to talk? Right? And this hadith is from Buhari.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:02

But this teaches us an important lesson that everything does not need to be a secret.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:10

Everything does not need to be a secret. And many times we just make a habit of whispering into other people's ears.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:38

You know, even in one's own house, where it family members are even there things are being whispered into other people's ears. Why? Why is there such a level of mistrust, people don't trust each other that you have to whisper into certain people's ears. Why? This creates ill feelings. It causes frozen. When people are excluded. It makes them feel sad. So this is something that we must avoid.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:41

Let's listen to the recitation of these verses and then we'll continue

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46


00:29:48 --> 00:29:52

if you want to feel Maya Kunal

00:29:53 --> 00:29:55

was sat in

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

on setting in

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

At least

00:30:05 --> 00:30:06

then he go on

00:30:09 --> 00:30:11

in one hour a

00:30:16 --> 00:30:17


00:30:21 --> 00:30:24
