Hi Yan Furla
rely on Amazon on a stain on a study you want to still feel worn out with the realignment shoulder and foot syndrome and sejahtera Molina yeah the love and I'm gonna Lila woman you will further her the other who are shadow Allah Ilaha illa Allah who the hula Sharika wash shadow under Muhammad and Abu rasuluh Allahumma salli wa Salam o vertical and a b&m Mohamed voila early he was off be suddenly Mila who met a slim and Kathy are under that all praised you to align his praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family, his companions and his followers until the Day of Judgment, I bear witness that Allah is the only one worthy of worship and
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger, my brothers and sisters, it is a common practice among Muslim Alhamdulillah is to read surah tell calf every Friday and there is several Hadith came in relation to the virtue of reading Surah till calf on the day of Friday or the night any which it means from last night mother up all the way until mount up today.
So some Hadith refer to pray reading it before the day starts. And some others said after the day start all the way until Maduro and regardless of the debate that we have among the scholars over the authenticity of it, it is the Hadith it is acceptable and it is a very common practice for Lion hunt.
Today I would like to reflect on nines, nose don'ts in the Surah till calf anak tissular artery sort of silica, nine times and sort of the calf Allah says don't
let's see what are these nine things and we read circle every week. That means it carries so many messages for us something that we have to pay attention to it. The first one comes in verse 22 where Allah subhanaw taala it's mentioning how people arguing over how many the people of the cave were how many persons were in the cave. Say a goon I thought I thought to rob your room can boom
Why APU and hum satins Dishoom Cal boom. Audrey man Bill ye ye una Saba to whom Cal boom gonna be on won't be on that
may Allah moon in colony
hero while does def TV Him in whom a Honda ALLAH SubhanA data says, and this verse after mentioning how people will say three, and this is the fourth was the dog five and the six was the dog, then Allah was all this was a assumption and basically
saying things from the own have no knowledge of it. Then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the third
number, which is and they will say seventh and eighth was the dog. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who knows, specifically how many were in that cave. Then Allah Subhana Allah says, My Lord is most knowing of the number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them, except with an obvious argument. Or also can be translated except with a kind, white, and a nice way. Okay, so with knowledge and kindness.
So that's the first thing that sort of to the calf telling us that we should be very careful when it comes to the issue of arguing and arguing with one another. And today in the world of social media arguing became something so common, and Facebook and Twitter on, you know, just people arguing for the sake of arguing, and everything you say, people will start jumping and even, you know, people get dragged into this grunt drag into the mud, and became back and forth and back and forth, and back and forth. It's Palla there is three words in Arabic language, I don't think in English we have that, you know, as well established the way it's an Arabic. So we use the word Mira. And we use the
word de dal, and we use the word who are three words, which is basically means debate, arguing and discussion. And also Mira is an arguing but arguing with
basically the argument and Mira
it's when you argue after you realize that you are wrong.
So this will tell me rod and Mira is is to argue after it's clear to you, you're wrong. But he didn't want to admit it. She started arguing just to win or to save your face. And no doubt that this is this type of Mira, this type of argument is the worst. And also arguing when you don't have evidence when you not sure. But you still argue with full confidence as if you know the truth. And arguing for the sake of arguing not because you want to learn not because you really want to come to a conclusion. It just because I want to oppose that person, or because I want to show off or because I want to embarrass the person or just for the sake of saying no. You know, so that also something
that common Elmyra always was referred to in the Hadith enemies as something bad. And Ill didn't this argument is also mostly accurate analysis of general jam at the moment, the axon muscles, most of the evidence, basically criticized the issue of arguing, very few situation argument can be allowed, where it is with the truth with based on knowledge, with the good intention, and when there is a great benefit from it. Like for, for what, like for example of a judge start, argue the case lawyers argue the case in front of the judge that type of argument because there is here, you know, rights to be protected. It is it's allowed in Islam, it is good also to argue with someone who don't
know the truth, to explain to him to show him the evidence. Let's say Allah subhanaw taala said about knowing that he used to argue with his people to tell them about Allah to show them the evidence. But after everything became clear, and became for the sake of argue Allah forbid even prophets and messengers to argue anymore, or argue over things that is no benefit of it, which is here the case what's what's going to make a difference if they are six or five. Nothing the story of the case
gave the people who went to the K means nothing to know if they were four or five or six or 10 or three or any any numbers, makes no zero benefits. So that's why wasting time over it, you know and debating over this will only lead to an argument that truth will not establish any benefit at waste of time. Also, it is so important to realize a simple fact.
Argument are not meant
argument are meant to reveal the truth not to make it
I'll say that again. You know, arguments are meant to reveal the truth, not to make it any some people argue and they want to make the truth. They just want to make things out of nothing. Because mashallah they have very good tongue sharp tongue knows how to debate knows how to, they make the truth as they argue, no argument actually, it is meant just to reveal the truth.
Also, another thing, that anytime you enter into a debate with someone who is just you know, for sure that they're not there to benefit just for the sake of ignorance for arguing, we you know, clearly that they are completely ignorant and not willing to learn, don't waste your time with them. Because I'll tell you something, I learned that sometimes in the hard way. That when you argue with a fool you make it to have them
you know, so just just don't drag yourself down to that level. You know, if things are clear and hamdulillah they said don't argue when you are winning.
You know, if things establish and you explain everything clearly, tell us a little bit and half the half the battle let go lab when
you after you've established the thing clear to people, whoever accept the truth that hamdulillah however not, it's their fault, it's not yours
should have told us that Allah subhanaw taala when he wants to, when Allah subhanaw taala mislead someone, when Allah Subhana Allah let people go astray.
It is because of argumentation this or argue with one another and that will lead them to go astray so they argue with the Prophets they argue over to the Quran. That's why in the Hadith epidote al Mira over Quran you could argue over the Quran is a form of kufr when you start arguing about things you have no knowledge of Tafseer you have no knowledge of Arabic language you didn't know nothing about the books of sin and alumina Quran you know nothing about how the Quran structure you know nothing about the principle of Sharia and someone keep arguing about oh this verse mean this and this were established that and all this what led people to go astray? Or how do you think maybe
somebody are you I can trust this and nobody yeah heavy Who are you to say I don't know trust the body? What do you know about animal Hadith? What did you study now because you grow some hair you know in your face or you became taller or you you know became an adult it means you are a qualified person to argue
you are qualified when you have the knowledge when you go study when you learn
it's like me arguing with you know, a physicist about launching for example, the next you know, NASA's rockets to the space No, no, no, you have to put it in that angle.
What might not let you do that or are you with the doctor about a very specific thing that I have all my information is from some WhatsApp message
that I learned or some you know, these you know,
social media tick tock you know information. You argue with someone they spend half of your lifetime studying these areas.
So that's so important for us to realize that polynomial Salah Melba Coleman Bader, who that kind of ally
when the amount and Hala I see this a lot today especially in our country with the elections is there is so much arguing and there is so little actions
people just put the seconds to prove you wrong is to show your false picking your wording picking your Abbott nobody really have any substance.
And also in Ibiza Salam said in other regions it Allah Allah, Allah do crossing the most hated one to Allah is the One who is aggressive, argue with people aggressively.
End up with data that are the Allah on al Qaeda because ethminer Allah does Allah memoria it's enough sin
that you always argue about everything with your kids. You always argue with your spouse you always argue with your friends we always argue, nothing go easy. That kind of character trait. It's a trait that cause so much sins to be accumulated. Malik Rahim Allah, Al Milla your personal pal, those who always argue like this, their hearts is so sad, any harsh, not soft. When you go to the Buddha and make people hate you. doesn't lie. Nobody likes you.
So many young kids I met and I talked to, and when you ask them why there is so much distance between them and their parents, believe me, among the top three things that always mentioned to me, is because my parents argue all the time.
They always argue, and vice versa, most of the things that make adult and parents don't like their kids because the kids like to argue over everything.
So I think we need to kind of balance this a little bit. Yeah.
Allahu COVID Sharon, and zemer who will gentle woman at home will Amman if Allah want Yeah, and if there is evil intent for his people, is when they start argue and they don't act.
Many times I call to meetings. That meeting meant for example, to talk about how to unify Muslim
and instead of we talking about how unify Muslim in these many times, the first thing you're arguing over Moon citing halal meat and back and forth and back hellos we know all these opinions.
But can we put a plan actions?
We all owe two hours over argued. So that's the problem. The problem when you don't have that, you know, when you start love talking more than acting this talk is cheap. Unless you talk to a lawyer.
Yes, they would all love to our lawyers, brothers and sisters.
I want to say also one more thing before I move from the first one. When you when you're arguing you have a discussion about something. Please make sure you understand the difference between facts and opinion.
Don't treat your opinions as the ultimate fact.
You know, is not Quran
so please don't get whenever that's all fine. Let me invite Hera any only with the very clear evidence. Otherwise don't engage in this come back and forth.
when you are you also make sure I've been cathedra him Allah said when you when you talk with people, based on this verse, you talk in a nice way kala Mira Anwar Hara nivara were Herson any with respect with nice words, you know,
raise your words, Don't raise your voice.
Raise your words. But raise the level of your arc, the logic, your logic when you need discuss things, but Don't raise your voice. You know, it is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
see what you mean? That's fine. But don't say it in a mean way.
Just say it in a nice way. Be kind and nice. When you talk. Then Allah Subhan Allah said in the end of the verse, while at the Stiffy he mean who had Allah says, And do not acquire about them. You need the people who don't acquire about the people of the cave, from any one of those who speculate as speculators from any one of them. This verse is interesting. It teaches us something don't take knowledge from ignorance, or half learner or double ignorant you know what's double ignorant people which is a lot of them exist these days, double ignorant those who don't know that they don't know
in the dawn know that they don't know. And he started talking and you know, as if they are expert and they are double ignorant so that's why nobody saw Salam said one of the sign of the Day of Judgment we will ask the ignorant people that's why you've been sitting said this Dean is this knowledge is Dean make sure you take it from the right source from the right source.

The impact that you have over people with your actions is way more than your words. The third one Allah says Don't say that you will do something tomorrow. Unless you say Inshallah, while at the colon militia in in Nephi and Delica Radha Illa, sha Allah don't say that inshallah is about the future.
When I was born in Egypt, they say in sha Allah about things in the past, which is completely making no sense. You know, Inshallah, it is, if Allah Who else when Allah wills says he asked someone, what's your name? My name is Walid in sha Allah. Allah Allah. Well, did you already name Polly if you don't say Hi, my name is Ali. Where are you from? I'm from Egypt in sha Allah. Hello. So you're from Egypt, us in sha Allah about the future.

get distracted, somebody stole his donkey.
And he didn't sell it. He came back having the the robe around his neck like you know, sad. So the guy who told him say inshallah Ha, did you sell it? Heard about it? About what happened to him? Did you sell it? He said no, that donkey was stolen in sha Allah.

is about the future. So whenever you want to sit why, why this etiquette
it's to make you always connect your heart with Allah. Don't think your power is enough. Don't think your will is enough. Don't think your your knowledge is enough.

it's how I feel sorry sometimes even for my own kids and you know for the younger generations, when you see all of the look at on tick tock and social media and Instagram, it's all those people who Allah described in the Quran
what kind of camera who ferrata those who fulfill the desires and everywhere in anyway and all with the scene all the watches all these so called stars and role model and influentials. You know, in social media and all this kind of things, Allah swear that I said to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam or the Muhammad not to anyone else don't look at other than the righteous people who mentioned Allah and that morning and in the night why because it will affect your heart and Mohamed Salah about me and you who are far away from being like the prophets of salaam far away from being the Sahaba it's so important to always focus and to read and to write about the good
because when you became so familiar you see all this bad over time you became you know,

Sometimes we rush to us, we asked before the right time. This is a teacher that when you learn as a learner, because all of us learner, no matter how old we are, you have to be patient, you have to wait. And a lot of things I want to say about this, but one important point is remember this enemy is not only by asking questions, is also by listening.
asking question is important. And answering is important. But also more important is to to wait until you observe the whole subject. Then you start asking, sometimes you find young kids, when you tell them not to ask your question, wait until I explain to you. So you can basically have your the knowledge in your head and your mind organize. Number seven letter after the need be Maliseet Don't blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty. We need to learn how to have good faith and people. Excuse people. You know, don't blame people brush to blame people. People have maybe have bad days have things going on through their life. You don't know many of you

Some people take advantage of those who are good, mashallah, he's generous every time you ask him for money he gave you her last year and he doesn't mean I have to go every time to the person. You know, not because I forgive you once, sometimes who burden people. Don't overburden your children, with too many requests with too many things.

But like, this is a beautiful advice, which is learn how to move on.
When you are burdened by someone who is overwhelming you move on, don't stay in this situation.
So many people in marriage and partnership in business, you know in friendship has let it go cut it off.
Move on in your life.
Live like move on. If you don't move on, you know what happened to you, you fall back.
If you don't move on, you fall back. So learn how to keep going. You know.
So since live moves, you should move as well with it.
Any we will evolve past certain people.
So we have to understand that and you have to be willing to accept that if somebody doesn't make you comfortable, overburdening you making you stressful, you know, somebody's so there's something wrong here. And you have to stop and don't be afraid. You're gonna have that self esteem and customers want to move on in your life. You know, you can't expect to move forward. If your emergency brake is on. You need to let the brake you let basically off the emergency brake off then you can keep going. May Allah subhanaw taala always make us choose what's best for us.
