Fighting against oppression, whether on behalf of yourself, or on behalf of someone else, cannot be confused with rejecting a laws decree. In fact, Allah azza wa jal puts us in situations where oppression happens to us, or he puts us in positions of power over other people to test us and see how we are going to behave. That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the importance of being unjust, and establishing justice in the very next verse of surah. Yunus, what are called our economic corridor and poverty from LEM Borden, who would add Tomasulo who will make the narrative one that can only chaotic and that is in the poem and Mussolini and we had already destroyed

00:00:55 --> 00:01:36

generations before you when they wronged and their messengers had come to them with clear proofs, but they would not believe us do we recompense the criminals. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in this area, that our actions don't only have consequences in the afterlife. They also have consequences in this life. Allah subhana wa Tada specifically says that he destroyed entire nations because they wronged and oppressed other people. Their actions in this life earned them a punishment that they did not have to wait around for

00:01:38 --> 00:02:03

when they wronged that's what Allah says, Allah use the word vulnerable, which comes from the root ball meme, which has two meanings. The first one is darkness or shadow, such as hola statement, Allahu Allah, you're Latina, and you're free to open up formality. In a note, Allah is the Protector of those who believes he brings them out of darkness into the light.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:16

Second meaning of law them meaning you is to put something out of this proper place on purpose. And this is the meaning we're talking about here. A loaded

00:02:17 --> 00:02:40

wrongdoing, oppression or just that putting something out of its proper place. In this verse, Allah subhana wa Tada does not specifically say what type of wrongdoing or what type of oppression caused their destruction. There are many types of voters. Allah subhana wa Tada wants us to stay away from all of them.

00:02:41 --> 00:03:20

One type of Makoto is idolatry a ship, Allah subhanaw taala says it's sort of look man in Shipka that don't alim. Certainly idolatry is a great wrongdoing or a great oppression. Idolatry is literally a volume because a person take something that belongs to Allah, like their fear, like their love, like their hope, their worship, and they put it in completely the wrong place. They devote it to an idol that is deaf and dumb that cannot create and surely cannot resurrect.

00:03:21 --> 00:04:13

And there is no doubt that there is nothing more evil, nothing worse than people making things up about Allah subhanaw taala or people making up things about the religion, Allah subhanaw taala says, well, many of them mean manifestor Allah Allah, he can't even Oh can never be a yachtie in a lovely format, avoiding ruin. And who could be worse than someone who invents lies about Allah or denies his signs? Certainly the oppressors will never succeed. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the worst thing worse than murder worse than genocide worse than racism worse than drugs should. The worst thing is making up things about Allah subhanho wa taala. First of all, because it reveals a lack of

00:04:13 --> 00:04:18

respect for Allah azza wa jal if you don't honor Allah enough.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:34

You don't revere Allah enough. So if you're ready to make things up about him, if you don't triple check your sources and make sure that the thing that you're saying about him was something that he actually revealed.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:43

Second of all, making things up about Allah is the worst thing because you are misguiding other people, not just yourself.
