Am I on

edge nine

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

we are continuing and perhaps the day we'll be able to finish the Tafseer of sorts

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

and we reach the statement of a lot

00:03:37--> 00:03:37


00:03:39--> 00:03:41

what I do walk can either

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

walk or the

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

other guitar I'm filming the other

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

team and more other Comiskey than them.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

Let's first of all remind ourselves

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

where we got to win this war.

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

What have we covered so far?

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

We said that allies are just to see movie

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

about what it means to swear by

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

for allies which had to swear by

00:04:20--> 00:04:28

the different understandings of that one to human behavior that while you are

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

going to be permitted

00:04:33--> 00:04:47

to fight in the city, no one else was permitted to live in the city except for the messenger of loss of the law of artemisinin for short periods of time and after that, it became it became how long life was in the beginning.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Why are you doing one on one, and that alarm which is swore by the parent and their child? We said it's my dad.

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

As Australian who said Ibrahim is married, who said the stronger opinion of the Tafseer of the eye is that will only be one hour that covers every parent and every child. Because gender, the general idea of parent, fatherhood, and having children is something other than the loss of habitat. It's something huge in the sight of Allah. Look at how ally soldiers started off this whole creation with Adam. And then from Adam, all of the human beings came, including the prophets, the messengers, the prophet, Mohammed Salah.

00:05:35--> 00:05:54

So the parents that have children is a great thing in the sight of a lie, it's not a small thing in the sight of alone, or anyone, I'll leave something serious in the sight of a law. Well, well, I need you, woman, what? The parent and their children or the parent and their and their child.

00:05:57--> 00:06:02

Then we spoke about the statement of allies or agenda catalana in South Africa.

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

That man has been created in a state of toil, in a state of problems and difficulties and hardships, and how life is just one hardship after another. Even when you things are easy for you, you still find things to be hard, in some way or another. So we spoke about the tenant,

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

the cabeza

00:06:29--> 00:07:09

tough struggles that you have to go through in life or that this is something that even before you're born, it starts and when you're born, it gets worse. And then as you grow older, it just keeps getting more and more and more. And that this is something that should raise your Eman, not lowering your mind, because you should see the struggles and think, How do I know I can no longer work so what sort of work so this is what a lot of messenger promised us. So we should take the truth of Islam and see the truth of Islam in the struggles we go through. Because we see we're going through hardship we go through struggles with or through a hard time. And we actually seeing that

00:07:09--> 00:07:27

this is the promise of Allah. Allah told us, look God Holla Holla inside if you can, we created man in a in a situation where he's always struggling, always working, always going through hardships, muszaphar troubles and problems.

00:07:30--> 00:08:22

And we said that this also gives you a desire for gender, because it tells you that okay, you know, this life this journey or whatever you do in this to me a wall, I get the money that you can write as many zeros on the bank balance as you like, you will not escape that cabinet, that ally soldier created for you in this life. Whatever you do, how much money you have, how many times whatever from marriage, from children from money from whatever you have, whether you are working, not work, you are going to have this struggle. So ultimately, you can't escape it until you go to gender which is why For example, when they ask the man when you rest, he said that when my feet off in general, or

00:08:22--> 00:08:42

he said when I put my feet in general, and this is when you will find peace This is when you will find the struggle stop until then. Allah in South Africa, we created man in a situation where we're always struggling all the suffering always with problems or difficulties.

00:08:45--> 00:09:14

Isobel la aka de la la he ahead does he think that nobody is going to hurt nobody has any power over him. ie does he think that Allah has no power over him. Allah created him in struggle and suffering and he created that human being in a situation where that human being is struggling and suffering and then he thinks that nobody has the ability to do anything to him. As if he is the owner of the world and everything that is in it.

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

yaku elect to melaleuca he says I wasted

00:09:23--> 00:09:52

money on top of money. We said loboda it means Moeller better meaning on piles on top of each other one pile on top of the other pile on top of the other pile. I collect to mail and do better. I used up all this money and we said this is not saga because if it was saga the phrase would not be used like this to Mel and lubega. You don't say about sadaqa I burned all of this.

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

You know money piles of money. I just burnt it all up. I just used it all up.

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

I used a pile

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

of money. You would say in fact to man and Luba I spent for Allah to suck duck to be married do better, or be married? No, but I spent I give sadaqa with these piles of money, but he didn't say that he said, luck to

00:10:17--> 00:10:33

you. Alonzo jail tells us this man who a lot created in suffering, a lot created in hardship, a lot created with difficulties. This man who thinks nobody can do anything to him. He says I left to Milan, Luba, all this money, I just used it up.

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

As if you just,

00:10:38--> 00:10:47

you know, put a flame to a HELOC to Milan Luba. I had money that was piled on top of money on top of money on top of money and I just got rid of all of it.

00:10:49--> 00:11:01

I said well lm era, Who does he think there is nobody that sees him when he was spending this money. Remember even rigida Rahim Allah Allah to Allah said he spent the money against Islam.

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

I want to stop on that just for a second, because I alluded to it last time, but I really want you know, I I frequently hear people talking about

00:11:13--> 00:11:30

considering conspiracy theories, talking about the enemies of Islam, talking about, you know, the, the way the enemies of Islam are plotting against Islam. And a lot of you know, this group is doing this and the secret group is doing that type.

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

I think here there is something that a person should do.

00:11:37--> 00:11:53

And that is that the people have an interest in this kind of thing. And it troubles them all the time and always thinking about these different groups and conspiracies and whatever. Go back to the Quran. And see what does the Quran say about the enemies of Allah and their plots.

00:11:55--> 00:12:21

And when you do that, you will become balanced. You won't become extreme because if you just get your information from YouTube videos, about the secret society and that secret society, you become, well, I can imagine you become like a mad person. You start seeing pictures everywhere eyes, on the floor and in the walls and you know, this person drove past me and he's watching me, you start to become paranoid.

00:12:23--> 00:12:43

Likewise, the person who says there are no plots and there are no plans. This person is also extreme. But the one who goes back to the Quran, they find it very balanced methodology as a religious ally. xojo tells us that the enemies of Islam have plots and plans

00:12:45--> 00:13:01

for Kokomo maeklong where en de la humor cool. What in Canada macroom liters who would have been rude Jeeva Allah says they have plotted a plot that if that this plot, it would be enough to remove the mountains.

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

If you did this plot against the mountain, you removed the mountain.

00:13:08--> 00:13:25

What did I lost him to Wyoming de la he macro? For all of their plots are with a log line, almost all the things that plot and this is also mentioned suitability approval as elected by the lubega. Even ruggerio said he spent these piles of money to destroy Islam.

00:13:26--> 00:13:39

In other words, he said, I piled money up to the ceiling and all of it I spent it in this way and that way to destroy fandoms. There was a lossy, I accept what an MBR? Who

00:13:40--> 00:14:22

does he think nobody sees him when he spends that money? Oh, as you just saw him. analyzer just said, What mecho webmaker, Allah will long hydromagnetic they made a plot and allow me to cross analyze the best of those who plot. But I think if you were to look at all of the different articles, you can certainly see that the enemies of Islam plot against Islam. And I think there are so many islands in the program that tell us that the enemies of Islam plot against Islam, without mentioned particular people groups names, but there are there are 10s of if not tell us that the

00:14:23--> 00:14:30

enemies of Israel 40 in the key to a Qaeda. We're here to figure they're plotting a plot and I'm plotting a plot.

00:14:32--> 00:14:46

That's the first thing. Their plot involves spending huge amounts insane amounts of money. yakou galactomannan lubega I spent these piles of money is so much it's piled on top of each other.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

And they spent it all to attack Islam.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

And this is something you see with your eyes. You don't need to believe in any you know, secret things. Yeah. And you just look with your eyes. Look at the amount of money that is spent on

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

On this entertainment and just taking the Muslims away from their Deen and corrupting them, money that you the numbers just become staggering. You're looking at the numbers and just thinking this much money it's as if it didn't exist in the world is just money upon money upon money and they spend it to hurt Islam and to hurt the Muslims. There's no doubt about that.

00:15:24--> 00:15:29

But on the other hand, Allah azza wa jal doesn't tell you to panic over.

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

allies, he is constantly reassuring you that Allah subhanaw taala controls

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

what they're doing.

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

Like Allah azzawajal told us

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

in Seurat

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

in sort of an

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

escape my mo it is anyways, but Eliza just said

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

faceva una, they will spend that money

00:16:03--> 00:16:12

they will spend that money so meta una la him hacer la, then they will feel regretful that they spent the money so my Okanagan then they will be defeated.

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

Elijah told us, they're gonna spend huge amounts of money. So

00:16:21--> 00:16:55

he has to do is to take the people away from the pocket of Allah, they're going to spend that money, then that money is become gonna become what for them hacer la they're going to become regretful they're going to start saying, Oh, we shouldn't have spent it like that. We wasted it, we didn't really hurt these Muslims. Like we were supposed to film my yoga, boom, then they're gonna be defeated. So, really a person should be should have a balance. Some people will lie, they get into this so much, that perhaps they will reach the level where they can it should be known as

00:16:56--> 00:17:22

they make a partner with a lot. Why? Because they start to fear. Other than a lot of fear that's only for Allah. They start to say that there are people who watch everything you do. There are people who hear everything you do a lie so jelly is the one who sees everything you do. A lie is the one who hears everything you do. No one has that characteristic except a lot jealousy or other. People want to hear 90% question over the years, everything that you do except the lies.

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

And then people start to panic so much about what the enemies of Islam are doing.

00:17:29--> 00:17:47

That they start to become paranoid, and they start to distance themselves from Islam. So you see, maybe they don't come to the machine, because the machine is part of the conspiracy and the last part of the conspiracy and the relevant part of the conspiracy. Like as they become they start to have a concrete image more like a meticulous lack of markers.

00:17:49--> 00:18:10

But if they were to listen to what the Quran says in Abuja, ketone Ikeda What are key indicator, they are plotting analyze plotting, even the end whose plot is good to him. There is no contest allows plots against the plot of his enemies is so great that while they're plotting they're plotting against who themselves

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

like allies, which will told us about those

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

people who are given the book Latina Alton keytab

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

there all our lives would have told us that they want to

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

what that thought if I mean lol kitabi

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

and you'll do look

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

warmer, you will deluna illa and also,

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

there are a group of the People of the Book who want to misguide you, but the only people they misguide is themselves.

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

They make such efforts, huge efforts, but their efforts all of it is just coming back against themselves.

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

So a person should be

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

in the middle.

00:18:56--> 00:19:17

Yes, allies which have told us that the enemies of Allah have got big plans against Islam. But those plans Allah azza wa jal will take care of them. Our job is not to fret and worry and panic to the extent that we start to lose our religion, and maybe even make a partner with a lot in fear of him because of how much we scared of

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

other people.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

At the same time,

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

we know that Allah azza wa jal controls everything that they do and all their plans are just going to come back against them. So what does a Muslim have to do? Muslim you do your best to

00:19:35--> 00:19:50

learn your religion to practice it, to teach it to other people to spread it. And the rest you leave to Allah subhanaw taala you didn't see the prophets I send them imagine how his life was in Medina. He had around him when

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

you imagine that people in his Masjid, who are pretending to be Muslim who are not

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

Who are not Muslim, and they're mixed in with the community. They're pretending to be Muslim, they're not Muslim.

00:20:07--> 00:20:09

But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't

00:20:10--> 00:20:26

allow he didn't, you know, the companions leave the Prophet sizing because maybe you can say he got revelation from Allah. And that's why he was calm about it. But the companions also, they also didn't let it change the way they practice their religion.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

We do our best we get on with our religion and we leave the rest to Allah subhanaw taala so a person like this.

00:20:35--> 00:21:04

And there are many, many Ayat of the Quran. And all of them tell us that allies are jealous in control of what these people are doing and that these people will not be able to escape a lie soldier and that's why this statement electro man and do better I wasted all of this money I against Islam, comes between two ayat II sobre la tierra LA I had a several lm era who I had, does he think no one has the ability to punish him.

00:21:06--> 00:21:19

Does he think that no one sees what he is what he's doing. So from here we can we can understand that the plots of the enemies of allies origin will always end up in ruin. analyzer gel told us

00:21:20--> 00:21:28

lovely, lovely, lovely when anniversary me and my messengers will be the ones who will be victorious.

00:21:32--> 00:21:35

lm Naja Allah who is a well he sang and worship attain What are they now?

00:21:36--> 00:21:53

This is where we got up to we spoke about that Eliza which is the one that gave you two eyes, that Allah azza wa jal is the one who gave you your lips, that Allah azzawajal is the one who guided you to know what is right and what is wrong.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

And we said that this is a

00:21:59--> 00:22:15

a kind of rebuke from Allah, that our life is rebuking these people that you are now you're the one spending your money against Islam, you're the one trying to destroy Islam. And the same two eyes that you're using are the two eyes that are lugging.

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

And the lips, you're using the word these words are coming out from the lips that Allah gave you.

00:22:25--> 00:22:42

The term that you're using, this is the tongue that Allah gave you. And Allah is the one who showed you the way that is right and the way that is wrong, how can you use the things that Allah has given you, and then take the wrong path with them when you know that Allah has given you and that is a general

00:22:43--> 00:23:14

sort of a methodology within the core ad, which is that allies or gel shows you His rubia His Lordship, like his creation and what he's given you and the blessings he's given you and then uses that to show you and to demonstrate to you why you should be worshipping Him and choosing the right path and not the wrong path. How can you choose a different path when Allah is the one who gave you your eyes and your tongue and so on? Okay.

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

We now come to the statement of alarm so a gentle fella kata. Harun acaba,

00:23:24--> 00:23:37

here, Lima myblu Kafeel Rahim Allah to Allah He caught some of moseyed or hammer low to Allah for the hermit acaba, SLS Celica toddy Allah te fi Hana jet Wilhite.

00:23:38--> 00:23:45

He said Fela kata Hamel acaba, the meaning of it is why doesn't this person because remember,

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

why they know who

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

we have guided to one of the two paths

00:23:55--> 00:24:34

the path of good the path of Rome falcata Hamel acaba, why doesn't this person take the path of good that's why to set Fela kata Hamel acaba Why hasn't this person, Salah Qatari ality fee her an agile hire when this person was shown two paths, a path that leads to gender and a path that leads to janin and the person new allies who just showed them clearly the past agenda and the past to Johanna Fela kata Hamel acaba, why doesn't this person take acaba?

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

Now this

00:24:38--> 00:24:39


00:24:42--> 00:24:44

acaba hear

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

this word or acaba originally is a tutorial ality

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

filled rabbit

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

the path that goes over the over the mountains

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Until today even in Arabic you still we still call it we still call it an Aqaba generally speaking like a path that is an uphill uphill path or a path that goes over the mountains. We call it an alphabet

00:25:19--> 00:25:26

Why do you think a lot so which we'll call now even a cafe he said that this path is the path of an ajet. Wilhite

00:25:28--> 00:25:33

is the path of safety is the path of goodness.

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

Why did Allah azza wa jal refer to this path as an aka the path that is over the mountain? The mountain paths the path that goes over the mountain?

00:25:47--> 00:25:50

Why Why not just call it

00:25:51--> 00:26:01

the path of good or the path of safety? Or the path agenda? What what why refer to it as the path that goes over the mountains?

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

Why do we think we can get some answers from YouTube? Do you have any? Any suggestions?

00:26:12--> 00:26:20

Okay, good. I like that Deus Ex. In fact, that's the same answer that the sheriff gave. He said, Well, howdy kuno.

00:26:21--> 00:26:31

He mentioned he should was rube is going to be a hard and a tough climb.

00:26:34--> 00:26:41

Because it's not something it's something that's going to require effort.

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

And that's why generally

00:26:45--> 00:26:51

misguidance or choosing the path of misguidance requires very little effort.

00:26:53--> 00:27:10

Choosing the path of misguidance and the path of error doesn't require very much effort. Doesn't require a lot of hard work. You don't have to work really hard to be misguided. Let me just work route I'm trying so hard to be misguided.

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

Rather be misguided appears to be the easier path.

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

Everything is handled for you

00:27:20--> 00:27:30

and will like somehow when you look at the Quran well I can just this one I I could stop on it all day. Fela Kota Hamel acaba, why don't you take the mountain path?

00:27:31--> 00:27:34

Why don't you take the path through the mountains?

00:27:35--> 00:27:40

When you think about it, it's not that Islam is difficult. Islam is not difficult.

00:27:42--> 00:28:11

But the way that when you see people who get misguided generally speaking, people are misguided through two things, right? We've spoken about this before. They're misguided to Chabot hat and Shahada, they're misguided because they're confused about something from a knowledge, perspective, right? They, from a knowledge reason, they're confused, is this right or wrong, and then they get misguided because of their confusion. Or they're misguided because of their desires.

00:28:12--> 00:28:30

And following your desires, generally speaking, is a very easy road to take. And that's why Allah azza wa jal told us in an episode that America can be so the soul is constantly going towards evil because following your desires is really easy.

00:28:34--> 00:28:37

Eating whatever you want, versus being on a diet.

00:28:39--> 00:28:58

Just for the purpose of getting the idea across it is easy to eat whatever you want, it's hard to control yourself and say, No, I'm not going to eat chocolate today, I'm not going to eat cakes, I'm not going to eat biscuits, I'm not going to eat sugar, I'm not going to eat this is hard to restrict yourself. It's easy to just say, whatever, I'm going to eat whatever I want.

00:29:00--> 00:29:15

It doesn't mean it brings you happiness. Because after your whatever you want, you feel really ill and you feel bloated. And you're sitting there thinking, Oh, I shouldn't have done that. It doesn't necessarily bring you happiness, but actually setting off on that path is really easy compared to the path of restricting yourself.

00:29:17--> 00:29:59

And that's why a lot of people when they either talking about people entering into Islam, or Muslims who are struggling to practice Islam, the problem is that it requires some effort to actually set on that road. And you know, when people say, Oh, you know, Islam is so restrictive. Islam is restrictive. Of course Islam is restrictive. And in Silla de la jolla. What Allah is selling you is expensive. So the Prophet sighs him said the seller is what you the person who shop sells yet, and they're in a similar to La haulier. The thing that Allah is selling you is expensive and in a sale at a loss

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


00:30:02--> 00:30:24

By we see a lot here really what we should say is valuable not expensive. We the proper word is valuable. But I wanted to convey the idea that this is an expensive product you're going to get here. This is gender, this is valuable it is it's not easy. It's not just the case that you just go through your life with your eyes and your shot and your fingers in your ears and you end up in gender.

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

It's an acaba. It's a path over a mountain,

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

again, is the purpose of that we always hear about how easy the religion of Islam is, is the purpose of calling it the acaba to make you like say, or look at this mountain. There's no way I can get over this. This is so hard. I may as well just do what I want.

00:30:47--> 00:30:54

It's not the purpose. The purpose is you tell someone okay. On the other side of this mountain is genuine.

00:30:55--> 00:31:41

Everything you ever want normal Cabot, normal hardship, normal struggles, normal toil normal problems, but you just got to pace yourself step by step. Allah loves the continuous deeds, baby steps nice and consistent. Get yourself ready, go climb over the mountain, and everything will be fine. It's about preparing you mentally, for what is going to come for what your life is going to be like, your life is covered. Even if you take your desires, your life is still covered, you're still going to suffer, even if you take your desires. But it feels easy. But in reality, it doesn't get you where you want to be. So what we're seeing is, based on the tip of this Sora, the only place

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

where there is real ease and relaxation is gender.

00:31:46--> 00:32:04

There are three paths. Actually the paths are many, but you can divide the paths into one single path goes to gentlemen, it's a bit of a hard climb. It's a tough climb, you'll have to work hard, you'll have to prepare hard, but you get there and you get everything you ever wanted.

00:32:06--> 00:32:16

The other paths, which take you away look easy, but they don't arrive at any destination, just stay on them forever going around around around until they take you to Johanna.

00:32:19--> 00:33:06

And Johanna is far far harder and far, far worse and far, far more severe than any of the suffering that anyone would ever have in this world. So ultimately, the path that looks easy ends in the worst hardship and the path that has a little bit of hardship in it. It's a client. If you're ready for it and prepared for it, you will be able to climb that mountain with the permission of Allah and Allah has made the religion easy for you. A lot hasn't made the religion hard for you. So he hasn't made the climb to be impossible. He hasn't made the climb to be impossible. He hasn't made it so difficult that you die, you know, you die, you kill yourself trying to do it. He's made it something

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

which is an acrobat. It's a climb.

00:33:09--> 00:33:17

It's a climb. But at the end of the day, it is achievable if you have the right mentality and the right

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

kind of mindset.

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

So a person has to strive against themselves and the next will like some of them call it jihad or nefs you have to fight against yourself.

00:33:35--> 00:33:41

And ultimately, fight fighting against others is very

00:33:42--> 00:33:53

minor in terms of, or if not in minor. Let's say it's the fruit of fighting against yourself. If you can't fight against yourself, you definitely can't fight against the shaper.

00:33:54--> 00:33:59

And if you can't fight against the shaitaan you definitely can't fight against the enemies of Allah.

00:34:00--> 00:34:18

That's what happened okay. However, Hakeem explained it like that. So the first person you have to fight to climb the mountain is you and in all honesty, you are your biggest difficulty in climbing the mountain. And we know this because our lives we just said what color shape one was.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

In allow it

00:34:22--> 00:34:31

to come from left to come one that can only come in so far in and out to confess their job to me, fella. Hello, morning. Hello, and full circle.

00:34:32--> 00:34:53

The shaytaan will say when everything is done, Indeed, Allah promised you and his promise was true. And I promised you and I broke my promise. I never had any ability over you. The shaytan had no power to throw you off the mountain or take you off the path or take hold of you and put you on a different path. But the shaytaan invited you and you answered

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Illa and Darryl to come up to me. I invited you. You answered me

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

fella telone Don't blame me. Well or infosec can blame yourself. You're the one who answered. I told you this path was amazing and I lied to you. Sorry, but you know you You're the one who walked on it. I never pulled you. I never took you by the hand and forced you to come onto this path. I just told you it's the best path ever. It's more amazing. You love it. It's great. Don't worry that it doesn't look like it's going to gender eventually. You know, Allah, Allah Karim. Allah is Forgiving Allah will take you there anyway at the shavon lied about what was on the past. But you are the one who chose to walk it, you chose to take that path. So don't blame me but blame yourself. So the Shea

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

pine is not even the biggest problem. He's your enemy.

00:35:42--> 00:36:02

But actually, the biggest thing you have to control to begin this climb is you have to control yourself. And if you control yourself allies, which will give you the ability to defeat the shape Han and then Allah azza wa jal will give you the ability to defeat the wider group of people that are planning and plotting to take you away from that path.

00:36:11--> 00:36:35

Basically, what we can take from this is that people always want to rest right? Nobody wants to hard work. Nobody wants to work hard. Generally, typically, your neffs inclines towards being a bit lazy and it doesn't really want to work hard. So you have to be in control of it. And I remember one of my missions, he said to me something which I really

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

I really benefited from it in the topic of Ischia to neffs purifying yourself

00:36:43--> 00:37:03

because this is test giftedness, right? Because ultimately, there are two problems with mankind. One is a volume and one is a giant inner who can have a loom and Jia hula, there is the problem of oppression. And there is the problem of ignorance ignorance you fix it by learning and oppression How do you fix oppression?

00:37:06--> 00:37:14

in yourself, not in other people oppression in other people be just I'm talking about how do you fix oppression in yourself the characteristic of oppression in yourself?

00:37:16--> 00:37:33

teskey Yeah, you purify yourself teskey utter ness. So that's why you know k Rahim allowed to Allah He said that the cure of ignorance is knowledge and the cure of the volume is teskey is purifying yourself. So right here now a person

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

seeks to purify

00:37:38--> 00:38:22

themselves, and struggle against the struggle against their soul. And the way that she explained it, he said to me, Look, your soul is like a comp, the first time you get it to sit, it's very hard to make it sit, you have to drag it the first time you try. And you know, you're trying to keep your soul on the straight path. And the first time you you know, it's always disobedient to you. But once you make a habit of forcing it to sit for you, it will sit for you more, it will become easier every time. And how many of us seen that I remember when I first became Muslim, I couldn't imagine praying five times a day, someone said to me you pray five times a day, five times a day who can pray five

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

times a day.

00:38:24--> 00:38:29

And now, five times a day is like, I mean,

00:38:31--> 00:39:08

it's there's days where you don't eat but you pray like I mean, it's easier to pray than it is to eat, you know, like it's the, it's nothing because you build a habit of it right. And that habit then leads you to it becomes easy for you. And that's how your soul is you keep on fighting with your soul on something and you never stop because there's always something new that your soul starts necessarily, to besought the soul is always going the wrong way. It's like you're trying to go up the mountain and every time you saw keeps turning around and going back you have to keep pulling it, forcing it to go the way that the knowledge has told you. Because the knowledge cured your

00:39:08--> 00:39:11

ignorance. That knowledge has told you that gender is that way.

00:39:12--> 00:39:32

The knowledge you got told you Jen days that will your soul keeps turning around and going backwards. And the shaytaan is not helping because he's whispering and telling us all knowledge, really, it's really good Come this way. So you keep going the wrong way. You have to pull your soul back. But the more you pull your soul in the right direction, the more it will listen. It will listen. And Allah hasn't made this religion hard.

00:39:34--> 00:39:58

But gender is valuable. And something valuable doesn't come for free. You don't get something for nothing, right? You have to show that you and in reality with gender you're getting way more than you deserve. Gender is way way more than the actions you do. Why is that? Someone who allow like my whole life for Islam, how is gender? How can you say that? Because whatever you gave for Islam, Allah give you much more in the studio.

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

If you

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

Take the blessings of Allah. If you take the blessings of Allah, and you take everything you've ever done for Islam, it will not even equal your eyesight.

00:40:13--> 00:40:35

See, okay, I'm going to work hard. I'm going to pray double now. So now at least I can make up for something. But the problem is you praying double is actually a blessing from Allah, and you still can't pay it back. So every blessing you get is another blessing and every action you do is still a blessing. So there is no way you can ever pay back Allah for what Allah has given you in the dunya. How about gender?

00:40:36--> 00:40:49

A person works to earn the mercy of Allah azza wa jal as a gift from a line of fever to get the mercy of Allah as a gift and a fever. And that is what will enter a person into Jenna. Fernanda Hamel, aka

00:40:51--> 00:40:54

one adder aka mal acaba.

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

Women adore aka

00:41:03--> 00:41:06

Mel aka. So the question here is Allah azza wa jal

00:41:08--> 00:41:09


00:41:11--> 00:41:19

what will make you know what this path is this Aqaba? Which is the mountain the mountain pass?

00:41:21--> 00:41:31

In other words, what are the things which will let you know or what you should expect to find on this path?

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

All the things that will show you

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

what this path is

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

or show you how to pass the path because allies which you know said Falco Hamel acaba, in other words, how can you pass over this path? Women a document aka what will make you know, what is the path what's on the path and how do I get over the path?

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

So, then Eliza tells you that Cora

00:42:07--> 00:42:11

Sekou Kou Raka by freeing a slave

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

by freeing a slave. So Allah azza wa jal tells you

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

that these things

00:42:25--> 00:42:31

are examples of the things that will bring you over the mountain.

00:42:34--> 00:42:56

fella called Hemel Aqaba Why didn't you take the path that goes through the mountain, the mountain path, woman Adela camel, aka what will make you know, what is this path, what's on the path and what will help you to cross the path. So now Eliza gel is going to give you a list of a bar that have acts of worship. And these acts of worship are going to be what is going to get you over that.

00:42:57--> 00:43:02

That mountain for kurata freeing a slave

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

Oh, it's Armaan

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

fiio mean, the mess of order

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

or feeding at

00:43:19--> 00:43:19

a time

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

is to feed

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

is to feed

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

to feed

00:43:32--> 00:43:55

feed to Mindy Mesaba, meaning we should wear hijab, on a day when people are in distress and difficulty. To feed people. It means to give time to someone else, to give food to someone else to give food to someone on a day that is the Masada

00:43:56--> 00:44:06

a day that is the should wear hijab a day that is a day of hardship, an idea of need. And this has a really really, really

00:44:12--> 00:44:13


00:44:15--> 00:44:19

benefit in it. Which is this issue of

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

what sometimes you quote a father and the different deeds which is more which deed is more valuable when right like how do we know which of our deeds is the most valuable at which time notice it a time giving out food to people is beneficial all the time.

00:44:47--> 00:44:49

What is the profit sighs I'm saying I should sell them what alternative Walton

00:44:51--> 00:44:57

was solo belay when NASA Nia to the full agenda to be set up. I'll come apart so I sent him he said

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

he was asked about

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

How to go to general how he said he told us how to go to gender easily how to go to gender

00:45:06--> 00:45:07


00:45:08--> 00:45:14

So this hadith goes together with the idea for Lakota Hamel aka calacatta hamanaka

00:45:15--> 00:45:20

wanna document acaba? This Hadees can go with it the profits or SLM said,

00:45:22--> 00:45:38

of shoe salon, give the salon spread the salon out to people say salaam aleikum, WA I'll clear my time and feed people will suddenly be lady in Estonia. And pray at night when the people are sleeping. The whole agenda Toby Salah, you're going to go to gender with safety.

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

In the Howdy.

00:45:43--> 00:45:47

It just generally mentions giving out food, giving out food to people.

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

But when is giving out food, the most valuable when is it the most

00:45:55--> 00:45:56


00:45:57--> 00:46:40

in a time for yo Minzy Messiah filming the * that inheritor in a time where people are in desperate need. And that's why people always ask, you know, like, as an example, you see a lot of people and it's amazing. Their attachment is sadaqa jariya. For example, they love giving sadaqa jariya sadaqa jariya. But food isn't sadaqa jariya right. We all agree that given our food is not Southern Nigeria, because the southern Nigeria is something where the benefit of the sadaqa is continuous, like the example of Prophet size and give gave Manoir or her Mustapha, whoever leaves behind a must have a copy of the Quran. Every time someone reads the most half that person gets the

00:46:41--> 00:46:54

reward, but the food it finishes when the person eats it. So some people because they see that sadaqa jariya just goes on and on and on and on forever. They're like, Okay, I'm gonna give all my money to a charity.

00:46:55--> 00:47:11

But sadaqa jariya is amazing, amazing thing. But it's not always the best saga. It depends on the situation. What about if you are filming the mascota in a day where people are starving in a day where people are suffering?

00:47:13--> 00:47:17

Is it the right thing at that time to say he is almost half you can read

00:47:19--> 00:47:25

nothing wrong with that is higher and higher, but better than it is to give the people what they need at that time.

00:47:27--> 00:48:04

And this is a really main focus sada caught from the fear of giving sadaqa that we don't see a lot of in this time. For example, I used to, at times work with different organizations and things that give outside the heart and things like that. And I used to see that sometimes people don't have this in terms of sada where to give it and when to give it so you see they just keep building massage it and that's amazing wildlife beautiful building msgid membrana Lila, he must cheat and Ben Allahu Allah will return to gender whoever builds a Masjid Allah builds a house for them in genda, Masha Allah,

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

but you see people starving. And still, we're going to build another one next 10 meters away from the last, like not, okay, not 10 minutes, but you know, a couple of 100 meters away from the last one. And still, the people are starving, and then 300 meters down the road, we're gonna build another one, and still the people are starving. So there's nothing wrong with Bill, it's amazing thing to do. It's from the greatest of the sidecut a person can do. But you have to try and understand that the value of sadaqa changes depending on the situation. And the greatest example is our a fireman filming the merkabah I'm going to feed people because today is a day where people are

00:48:48--> 00:48:58

starving. So I need to feed those people on that day. That's what my that's the best solder I can give on that day. And that's why this issue of

00:49:00--> 00:49:13

the different virtues of deeds is not an easy one to deal with. Someone asked about this after the hood, but today, how do you rate which deed is better and which one is not? It actually changes depending on situation

00:49:14--> 00:49:38

depend on the situation. And if a person also the height is good, but if a person has a lot of thought about this, they can get more out of their sadaqa because they start thinking not just which sadaqa is best because okay sadaqa jariya is has more multiplication than than regular sadaqa because it keeps going. But at the same time.

00:49:40--> 00:49:43

Allah mentioned that what's going to get you over the mountain.

00:49:44--> 00:49:56

The mountain path is feeding people on a day where people are desperate for food so you it's not so easy. Like I give an example people talk about

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

the best

00:50:00--> 00:50:30

of deeds. When the Prophet sighs Helen was asked about the best of deeds. Did he give the same answer every time when he was asked about which, which part of Islam is the best? I mean, okay definitely is to heed and learn in a halal way give that that was the standard answer. But generally speaking was asked, What good deed what good deed should I do? What part of Islam is best? What good deed is best? What's most beloved to Allah, you start seeing the answers are different. Why are the answers different? Because depending on the circumstance, the circumstances change

00:50:31--> 00:50:36

the way circumstances and situations change. Did we have a question on YouTube?

00:50:39--> 00:50:42

Is there an equivalent to freeing a slave today?

00:50:45--> 00:50:51

The concept of slavery is something that continues. Isla Yokoyama

00:50:53--> 00:50:58

is not something that is, has ended for good because Allah azzawajal

00:51:00--> 00:51:36

put a system in place for dealing with slavery that will last until your pm allows you to put a system in place for dealing with slavery that will last until your pm and a person never knows and situations change from place to place. Slavery can happen as a consequence of war, right? We're not talking about See, the thing is, I didn't want to go into much into Islam and slavery, because it's a big it's a big, big topic, and it's more of a topic than the Tafseer topic here. But I do want to highlight a few things. That slavery that Islam dealt with.

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

was not the slavery of Jay Hillier.

00:51:42--> 00:52:04

the slavery of Jay Hillier of the time prior to Islam was the slavery that we saw in terms of the Western world. When people were kidnapped from Africa and sold into slavery. That is the slavery of what have Jamelia because it's not slavery that is built upon a shadow a reason it's not built upon an Islamic reason.

00:52:07--> 00:52:38

And will lie to you that's why you see Subhana Allah from the people that were taken and enslaved and sent to the west as slaves will earlier map huge big scholars of Islam were sold into it with was stolen, kidnapped from their countries in Africa and sold into slavery. In the West. This slavery was wool was oppression. And it has nothing to do with the Islamic rules of slavery because those people were enslaved.

00:52:40--> 00:52:46

by volume by oppression, they will not it wasn't something which Allah azza wa jal legislated.

00:52:48--> 00:53:02

They were kidnapped and they were enslaved. And that is not the first time it happened, by the way, because kidnapping and enslaving people was very common in the time prior to Islam. And even there are stories of it happening to the Sahaba. Several of the Sahaba

00:53:04--> 00:53:13

were kidnapped and forced into slavery rather before them who did it happen to the very famous story use of

00:53:16--> 00:53:26

that he was taken from the Well Did anyone see was taken from the well and said, This belongs boy, let's go find this father. No, they took him from the way they said kalu

00:53:27--> 00:53:35

Abu Shahada, Ghulam, they said, this is a but we've got us we've got ourselves a boy we can sell into slavery.

00:53:38--> 00:53:39

What as a rule will be a bar.

00:53:41--> 00:54:11

They took him as something to be sold. So the point here is that Islam had a completely different concept of slavery. But just to give a simple example. And the reason I mentioned that right now is because this is a hot topic at the moment. You see, at the moment, a lot of people are going back and asking about the legacy of slavery and the people who are involved in slavery. I don't want any Muslim to think that Islam had anything to do with that, rather, Islam was

00:54:12--> 00:54:23

where the Muslims were among the victims of that they were not among the perpetrators of it. And that's why you have stories of great scholars of Islam who were taken, and they were enslaved.

00:54:24--> 00:55:00

So just so people understand in context that Islam had nothing to do with that. But Islam encouraged the freeing of slaves. Now, what is the Islamic slavery? Typically it is what we would now call a prisoner of war. That's what Islamic slavery is now we would call it a prisoner of war, and will light while I am not shy to say that the Islamic system of enslaving prisoners of war is so much more merciful than the system they have for prisoners of war today. Prisoners of War today, just read your history what happens to prisoners of war what

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

They do to them, they lock them in cages, they make them any dig tunnels until they die, they buried them inside of it, the rape, murder all these things that happen to these people who are un prisoners of war, you know, like they're supposed to be this is supposed to be the civilized way of dealing with things. The Islamic way was much more simple. The prisoners of war became slaves. Now you clothed them with what you clothe yourself with, you house them, where you house yourself, you feed them with your own food,

00:55:32--> 00:55:34

and you free them at every opportunity.

00:55:36--> 00:55:44

If someone understands what Islam is, they will see that all justice is in Islam, and all oppression is outside of Islam.

00:55:45--> 00:56:10

So Islam, today, there isn't really a system of enslaving prisoners of war, typically, among countries, what we have instead is we have a concept of prisoners of war. So they are imprisoned but not enslaved. That's the the earth today the kind of way that people do things today, when they fight wars, they don't enslave people, but they imprison.

00:56:12--> 00:56:29

And so for that reason, there isn't a large number of the ontological number of, of slaves from from prisoners of war, and therefore, really, there isn't a big opportunity to free slaves, but we're not going to see the issue doesn't exist. The end of the day.

00:56:31--> 00:56:41

Even freeing a slave who was taken involved is still from the great good deeds, right? Didn't Abul backup, abou backup freed how many of the slaves

00:56:42--> 00:56:47

and huge numbers of slaves Abu Bakar only allow one, he freed them,

00:56:48--> 00:56:49

like Villa rhodiola

00:56:50--> 00:57:03

and others that Abu Bakr purchased and fried, whether they were slave enslaved, legitimately or incorrectly. in Medina, the stories of the Sahaba, who instead of the Sahaba, cooperated together

00:57:04--> 00:57:12

submanifolds the other stories like that people were taken, kidnapped, forced to work, another Sahaba came together to freedom.

00:57:14--> 00:57:18

So you might still find slavery that is based upon oppression somewhere in the world

00:57:19--> 00:57:33

in which there is opportunity to purchase the slave and freedom for the sake of Allah. But this is something that really in our time, we don't, it's not if it exists, it's it's not that it's extremely rare, if it exists.

00:57:36--> 00:57:44

Something similar to freeing a slave doesn't quite come under for karaca. But it's connected to it

00:57:45--> 00:57:51

is connected to it, is to free someone from Cofer

00:57:52--> 00:57:53

and to call them to Islam.

00:57:54--> 00:57:59

I don't call it it's not it's not for karaca but it's not quite freeing a slave but it's

00:58:01--> 00:58:05

it's if slavery to a human being is something

00:58:06--> 00:58:08

you know, something

00:58:10--> 00:58:17

which gives a person a very low status. Right? When a person becomes a slave, their status is very low.

00:58:18--> 00:58:25

How about slavery to the shaytaan? How about slavery to your desires? How about slavery to idols?

00:58:27--> 00:58:27


00:58:28--> 00:58:54

So ultimately, if we can't free a slave today, which is actual slave, while at least the minimum we can do is to try to free people from the slavery which is the slavery of themselves and the slavery of the shape on and that's why even okay am Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah has a beautiful line in his new Nia will lie this.

00:58:55--> 00:59:13

such an amazing thing he said, he said, horrible woman or lady holy Kula who kabu buress Nevsky was shaytani. He said they ran away from the slavery they were created for what slavery will be created for what slavery we created for.

00:59:15--> 00:59:19

All of us were created to be slaves slaves to who a lot.

00:59:21--> 00:59:29

They ran away from the slavery they were created for. So they fell into the slavery of themselves and the slavery of the shaitaan.

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

Will I think if you were to write this in gold, it would not be a waste of gold, to be honest with you. If you look outside, look at these people. You live in a society where these people tell you your free will lie. Horrible Mina recolor the hula hula hoop, ah, boo boo, FC worship and they ran away from slavery. And they said we are free. We are free people. You live in a free country. This country is free. Do whatever you want. And voila, he there more

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

slave, they fell into more slavery than the one that they run away from.

01:00:05--> 01:00:18

They're more of a slave. They are slave to their desires. They're a slave to the shape on. This is why look at this idea and we're going to get off the topic but why not look at this idea of women being free

01:00:20--> 01:00:29

when they tell you, you know, come to the UK, you can be free. The women here are free. They're completely free freedom.

01:00:30--> 01:00:34

say to them horrible monarchy, Lady Haleakala, hufa, barbaric.

01:00:35--> 01:00:42

They run away from the slavery that they were created for to be a slave to Allah. And they became slaves to themselves in the shape

01:00:43--> 01:00:54

and will lie they think that they are free, I won't lie they are. There is no Emma, who is a real female slave who is in a worse situation than they are.

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

They have to dress the way they dress to please what men think, to please men.

01:01:02--> 01:01:10

They put themselves wearing nothing naked on a billboard and they say I'm free. You're not free, you're enslaved. This is slavery.

01:01:11--> 01:01:36

Then they say to Muslim, a Muslim woman who covers her hair covers her face and her hands and so on. They say you're enslaved. While I say back to her. I'm not the one who is. I'm not the one who is enslaved here. And maybe I'm a slave to Allah. You're the one who's enslaved. But look at how the shaytaan changed their mindset and their mentality that they actually think this slavery is freedom.

01:01:38--> 01:01:42

They in a slavery that is the worst kind of slavery a person can be in.

01:01:43--> 01:01:57

And they think that it is freedom. They really believe that they are in a situation where they are free. But they don't say that see that they are actually slaves to those men in a way that there is no slavery like,

01:01:58--> 01:02:12

but they can't see it. And they keep telling themselves I'm free, I'm free, I'm free. But we'll lie here if you're not a slave to Allah, which you are created for, you're going to end up being a slave to yourself and a slave to the shaitaan. And the men situation is the same.

01:02:14--> 01:02:44

If you're not going to be a slave to Allah, you're going to end up being a slave, to the shaitaan, and a slave to yourself. And that is the worst of the worst, because you can be a slave to a human being, and still be a slave of Allah, you can still be a Muslim, could be a Muslim slave, you could be enslaved by a person but still still pray to Allah azza wa jal, but the worst of the slavery which is as well as afeeling, the lowest of the low is the slavery to the shape. And the shutdown is the worst kind of master.

01:02:45--> 01:03:13

The worst master and the worst kind of slavery is the slavery to slavery to the shape on so maybe you can say if we can't free a slave physically today, at least we can free people from the slavery that they are living in right now, to slavery to the shapen and the slavery to their neffs and take them to slavery to Allah. And the big thing is that slavery to allies the highest status a person can reach. What's the evidence?

01:03:14--> 01:03:38

What's the evidence that being a slave of Allah is the highest position a person can reach slavery to the shape one is the lowest, and slavery to a human being is pretty low down on the scale. Right? If someone says I'm a slave, right, I'm enslaved. That's a pretty low position in the society. What's the evidence that being a slave to allies the highest place you can reach?

01:03:43--> 01:03:46

What is true you don't care about what happens to your life but you need evidence.

01:03:51--> 01:04:16

Okay, so one evidence is that a lot of calls the angels his slaves, that's a good evidence, but there's a someone could argue that the angels angels have like no choice in the matter. They don't. So is there an example we can give for a human human beings that would show us that being a slave to allies the highest position that a person can reach is the highest status you can have?

01:04:21--> 01:04:22

I Heidi,

01:04:24--> 01:04:24

as you like

01:04:26--> 01:04:27

it, man, no problem.

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

So Hannah, Lady SRB, Abba de Leyland, minute messagelabs, harem MST, la casa de bochner Hola. or any of the ayat in which Allah calls the Prophet size lm, my slave. The prophets lie some who all agree, highest lineage, highest status. Number one out of all the children of Adam and I say you two were the Adam, whatever. I am the best of all the children of Adam, and yet in the position, let me ask you this question. The Prophet size M is the best of the children of Adam

01:05:00--> 01:05:15

Write of all of all of human beings, he's the best. As for the angels, the scholars will not get into the whole issue of the whole of creation. And let's leave that aside. Let's just stick to a simple thing. He's the best of the children of Adam.

01:05:16--> 01:05:46

When was he at his highest status? Like when did what event comes to mind when Allah really raised him up to the highest place? And it's through our marriage, right? in that event, when you have the best of the children of Adam, in the highest place that a person is so high that gibreel said, I'm not allowed to go where you're gonna go jabril said to him, I'm not allowed to go past this point. Here I stop. gibreel is not allowed to go that high.

01:05:47--> 01:05:58

And the prophets I seldom went that high. In that state in that place. What did Allah call the prophets lie Selim sapan la vs. La, B, Agha de he, my slave,

01:06:00--> 01:06:27

the best of the children of Adam in the highest place that anyone can go and he's called my slave. And that's an evidence that slavery to Allah is the highest like they call it karma or Buddha, servitude and slavery to Allah is the highest that a person can go. The highest therapist can go if that time comes, we will pause the class to give that I don't know who's watching the other time.

01:06:32--> 01:06:39

Just check on the just check because that that clocks not very, maybe not very reliable. Just check the timetable.

01:06:45--> 01:07:23

Definitely seems early 2944. Okay, when the time comes, we'll pause it and we'll then we'll just continue shall. Okay, so we got the freeing of a slave and we got the feeding of the retirement, filming the Mesaba Yeti men, them acaba Who are you going to feed so not only do the lies which I'll tell you about the situation is that the people are in a state of desperate need. The people are in a state of severity. And you're feeding the people in the state of severity. But Allah azza wa jal tells us who you're going to feed, you're going to feed your team and

01:07:24--> 01:07:26

their motto, Maharajah

01:07:27--> 01:07:32

a team, who is your team who can give me a defined definition of your team. What is the word your team need?

01:07:35--> 01:07:37

An orphan who is an orphan in Islam?

01:07:39--> 01:07:40

In Islam,

01:07:42--> 01:07:51

the Prophet saizen was often up to a point up to a point but what makes a person often was the definition of often

01:07:53--> 01:07:57

got half of it, you don't have a father, that's half of that you lost your father.

01:07:59--> 01:08:02

There's another half before?

01:08:04--> 01:08:08

Not quite nearly you lost your father before maturity.

01:08:10--> 01:08:37

When foccacia manchaca who do a senior boo, whoever lost their father, before the age of puberty after the age of puberty, we don't call them yet in. We don't call them often we say they were an orphan. But we don't call them a team when they reach the age of adulthood, before they become an adult. They are an orphan whoever lose their father. What about someone who loses their mother, we don't call them an orphan,

01:08:38--> 01:08:43

then orphan if they lose their father, before puberty.

01:08:44--> 01:08:56

Because the father is the one who's given the responsibility in Islam of paying for them, looking after them spending on them, protecting them by the permission of Allah. So losing the father is a big thing.

01:08:58--> 01:09:04

And we spoke about the team already in the Tafseer of the ad. We spoke about the team, where did we speak about the team?

01:09:08--> 01:09:10

We definitely spoke about the team already.

01:09:14--> 01:09:18

Anyways, we'll think about it. We spoke about the team already. And we said that

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

looking after the orphan.

01:09:23--> 01:09:45

You imagine the orphan is someone who is first of all, they don't have someone looking after them. They don't have someone to look after them. They don't have someone to protect them. I'm talking about after allies. They don't have someone to protect them to really like defend them. And I don't know if you guys saw but when we did the Muslim family

01:09:47--> 01:10:00

episodes, we spoke about the fact that one of the great things a parent can do for their child is to defend your child. Like look at how the prophets why Selim was with with Fatima the Allahu anhu when

01:10:00--> 01:10:41

I wanted to marry the daughter of Abu Jihad rhodiola on her, and he wanted to marry her. And the Prophet says and became angry. And he said, Fatima is from me. And whether makes her upset makes me upset. So defending your children is a major part of parenthood. What do you do if you don't have that finger who is going to defend you? And then the child starts to get older, and the child starts to realize that their dad's not with them. And maybe the other kids start making fun of them and start seeing now you know, you don't have a dad, or they start to see I'm going out with my dad, me and my dad are going out me and my dad, my dad's taking me this, my dad bought me this present.

01:10:42--> 01:10:43

And this orphan is sitting there thinking.

01:10:45--> 01:10:46

I don't have that.

01:10:47--> 01:10:52

I think we pause it there. Pause it, pause it, just put it on pause for a second while we give the other.

01:12:53--> 01:13:05

Okay, so we're just going to finish off this. We'll finish off this segment because I don't want to I don't mind doing another day on the Tafseer. But I want to finish this segment. Otherwise, we're not going to

01:13:07--> 01:13:08

sort of Doha.

01:13:09--> 01:13:17

I was it was certain that we spoke about insulting marijuana we spoke about sort of Xochimilco. So, the team

01:13:18--> 01:13:23

is described as Elliott is described as Yeti men that Makarova

01:13:25--> 01:13:34

Makarova here means caraga meaning a team who is your relative.

01:13:36--> 01:13:39

The team who is your relative has two rights over

01:13:41--> 01:13:47

the right of the team, the right of the orphan, we said, you know, the team support especially when they get older,

01:13:49--> 01:13:53

and the other children are saying my father does this, my father did this, my father gives me this.

01:13:56--> 01:14:05

So that's why softening the heart is when you rub your head, you rub your hand over the head of the orphan softens your heart, you look after the orphan.

01:14:07--> 01:14:10

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the one

01:14:11--> 01:14:21

who he who raises the orphan or takes care of the orphan that he and I will be like this in Paradise and he put his two he put his two fingers together.

01:14:23--> 01:14:28

This orphan has two rights, the right of the orphan and the right of

01:14:30--> 01:14:32

will corba the relative

01:14:34--> 01:14:50

and relatives and your family is sadhaka is most deserving to be given towards your poor family members because they have two rights over you. They have the right of El Caribe, the family member and the right of the Yeti.

01:14:54--> 01:14:59

Is it the case that all of the Tamar the orphans are deserving of

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

Zakah, for example,

01:15:03--> 01:15:05

is the car does the car go to an orphan?

01:15:13--> 01:15:31

An orphan is not one of the categories of the zecca. The question is, is the often poor or not, because some orphans are very wealthy, they need taken care of. But that doesn't mean that they're necessarily poor, some orphans can be more wealthy than any of us, the father left behind millions of pounds for them.

01:15:33--> 01:15:36

But the issue is, they still need someone to look after them take care of them,

01:15:38--> 01:15:41

you know, be kind of like a father figure for them.

01:15:44--> 01:16:20

Here we're talking about feeding, so we're talking about the poor orphan. And here this orphan is poor. So they have the right of the orphan, they have the right of the miskeen, the poor person and they have the right of the party, the person who is your relative, likewise, the neighbor, the neighbor has another right on top of you. So you're always looking at starting with the people who have those big rights over you, your close family members and so on, and then outwards and outwards and so on our miskeen and their metadata or a miskeen person, a poor person,

01:16:22--> 01:16:56

a poor person, and included in this could be the orphan who is not your your family member. Because remember, the orphan that is mentioned in the first part of the first ayah is too often mentioned in the first ayah is the orphan Who is your family member, your orphan who is from your family, and the one in the second it is the poor person, generally. So this can be the one that is from your family, and the one that is not from that is not from your family. And the poor person is described as their mclubbe.

01:16:58--> 01:16:59

wants to rob

01:17:02--> 01:17:03


01:17:04--> 01:17:13

their metal robber, some of the scholars of Tafseer, they said it's as though the person the only thing that they have is dust.

01:17:14--> 01:17:34

It's like that, like someone who is so abject in such abject poverty, such severe poverty, that the only thing that they have, it's like they have just buried themselves in the dust like they've covered themselves in the in the dust or like the only thing that they own is dust,

01:17:36--> 01:17:39

or miskeen. And they're metal, rubber,

01:17:40--> 01:17:49

or a poor person like that. But some of the scholars have said they didn't say that they said they're met Robert, they said that we are the one who has a family.

01:17:51--> 01:18:06

They said it means the poor person who has a family. And this is more beneficial. This is another reason about focus saga caught the flick of giving sadaqa that looking at the poor person that has a family,

01:18:07--> 01:18:25

you're going to benefit not just them, but you're going to benefit their whole family and then more that gives more than just the poor person who is by themselves. And you know, like as a single guy, you can you know, you can have suffered with some situations but it's difficult when it starts to affect your children. And you see poverty affecting the children.

01:18:26--> 01:18:28

The word in the Quran doesn't

01:18:29--> 01:18:43

that matter about doesn't mean family, but some of the scholars mentioned it in the by meaning as in the context of the one who is really suffering the most is the one who has is poor and has to also support their family.

01:18:46--> 01:18:57

Otherwise the meaning of the ayah is the one that lay setting the who she is the one who has absolutely nothing is that the only person you can give saga to the one who has absolutely nothing

01:19:00--> 01:19:15

in the Masada Cartoon for how long it will Masaki is the is the condition for Zika for example, we're not sure about Sakaba Sadako generally but I mean Zika is the condition for soccer they have to be there much rubber, they have to have nothing zero.

01:19:19--> 01:19:41

A traveler truth you can give it to a traveler, but let's look at just I'm just looking at poor people. You know, like for example, to qualify for Universal Credit, for example, you have to have you have to have a certain you have to have a certain amount of income, a little income compared to expenses and stuff like that. In Islam, what is the threshold for Zika and poor people?

01:19:57--> 01:19:59

You complicated it with education.

01:20:00--> 01:20:10

But you're right. But you just you made it more difficult than it had to be. It's a person who doesn't have enough for their basic essentials.

01:20:11--> 01:20:25

So what you say is perfectly correct is someone who doesn't have enough for your basic essentials, what are the basic essentials, this is where there is might be some difference among the scholars is education a basic essential or not?

01:20:27--> 01:20:38

What I mean is, if you're in a country where you have to pay for your education, and someone says, I've got enough for my rent, I've got enough for my food, I've got enough for my bills, but I don't have enough to pay for my children's education

01:20:39--> 01:21:07

is an essential, many of the scholars of our time sets from the total react is from the essential things that a person can't live without, because even their journey, their earning, and their job, and so on. But maybe in every country is a bit different, right? Everywhere is different, because some places, maybe your private school is not essential, you can get a public school and things like that, but generally, they don't have enough money for their essential needs. That's the understanding of

01:21:08--> 01:21:35

the person who is entitled to the zakka. As for the sadaqa, there is no limit to it. You can give sadaqa to a rich person if you want, but it wouldn't be as beneficial as the sadaqa that you give to the poor person, as the sadaqa you give to the person who has a family and is poor, and so on. So you can give sadaqa to anyone you want. You can give sadaqa to a rich person, but you need to try to give yourself data where it's most beneficial.

01:21:43--> 01:21:45

So we can finish with a principle

01:21:46--> 01:21:49

that we can take from all of these statements sort of balance,

01:21:51--> 01:22:33

what principle we're going to take, when it comes to South Africa, the greater the need of the person, the more reward you get in your Southern car. That's the car that we're going to put here, we're going to put a principle, and we're gonna say the principle of where you give your sadaqa is, the greater the need of your sadhaka the more reward there is. So in a place where and what lies not well, like even the amount of the message he was telling me that when he grew up, he said we didn't have a must have for everyone. Not everyone had a copy of the Quran.

01:22:35--> 01:22:52

Not everyone had a copy of the Quran, we had to go and the whole people in the village they had to go and there's like one call and they have to borrow it to learn the surah and give it back and then like that they didn't have a Quran for they didn't have a Quran for everyone.

01:22:53--> 01:22:55

So in that case,

01:22:56--> 01:23:02

they had food but they didn't have a Quran for everyone. What might be the saga with the most reward

01:23:03--> 01:23:04

it would be

01:23:05--> 01:23:20

to leave to give a poor and for example, but in a situation where people are starving of hunger, the best sadaqa wouldn't be to give a copy of the Quran. The best sadaqa is the one that fulfills the greatest need.

01:23:22--> 01:23:23

I thought we were going to finish this

01:23:24--> 01:23:32

I went off on a tangent and we didn't get a chance to finish it. Does anyone have any questions before we conclude and we break up for salata Asia

01:23:36--> 01:23:38

anyone got any questions

01:23:41--> 01:23:42

any questions from the YouTube

01:23:47--> 01:23:49

minute give them 10 seconds see how quickly you can type

01:23:55--> 01:23:57

the type typing okay well let them type

01:24:07--> 01:24:12

okay put put that on the you can put down the screens Good question. So this question says

01:24:14--> 01:24:23

the early generations didn't used to wish for death actually we have had if we have enough in this so we don't we have a clear text the Prophet sighs I'm said lay a term and then

01:24:25--> 01:24:33

we do when NASA lobby a Comic Con. He said Don't let anyone wish for death because of a hardship that happened for them.

01:24:37--> 01:25:00

In Canada boot dermatillomania and failure code if the person must wish for it, then let them say Aloma a Hany mechanical hire to hire only whatever funding either Canada to offer to hire only or a lot make me live as long as life is good for me and cause me to die when death is good for me. Like there is a difference between wishing to die and between

01:25:00--> 01:25:26

longing for gender, I long for gender. But I know that gender is on the other side of the mountain. So I want to go as far up the mountain as I can to do as many good deeds as I can to get as much out of my life as I can. That doesn't stop my longing for gender. wishing for death is like all us. I'm sick of doing my good deeds here in this life, I've had enough of myself, I've had enough of these things, I just want to die.

01:25:28--> 01:25:51

And that's why the Prophet sighs them said, lay at him. And then I had to come on out the door in naza lobby because something bad happened to him. He didn't say don't wait long for gender, he said don't wish to die because something bad happened to you. And that's the way you reconcile between the two. That's the way that we reconcile between the two let go you have one more concretely.

01:25:52--> 01:25:54

Two more yellows, sir.

01:26:06--> 01:26:47

So that's a really good question you can put on the screen for everyone. So the question is sponsoring an orphan is that the same as the one who looks after the orphan? So it's a part of it, no doubt, but it's not the same as the one who has the really, you know, takes the orphan in and gives the orphan everything they need. But it's a big part of it. So you get a share in it, right? So when you pay for an orphan up to sponsor and often what happens, you pay for someone to look after that orphan. Right? There's a share now, between you and between them, they have a share, because they are the ones who are actually looking after them and taking care of them. And you have

01:26:47--> 01:27:09

a share, because you're supporting that financially, and inshallah the reward will be for both of the people who are involved. But it's not exactly the same as the person who does both of those things themselves. pretty shallow, the reward, and the the grace of allies was a lot. There's too much. You can't put a limit on the Lord's grace and mercy.

01:27:10--> 01:27:11


01:27:17--> 01:27:31

Well, I asked this to one of the teleporter it's a very good question. They said, I daughter, a daughter. This is the I didn't know the answer this question I had to ask. One of the students of knowledge about
