Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim hamdulillah Hamden Cathedral even Mubarak and Fie wa Salatu was Salam O Allah I should have an MBA you will see the most serene while early he was off the edge of mine.

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

So I'm going to convert him into law, the brother and sisters.

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

We're continuing now inshallah tada with the Tafseer of Sudoku Baccarat.

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

In the previous

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

lesson we had, we were still at the beginning of skeleton bacara.

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

And we had discussed

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

where our last panel data

00:00:36--> 00:00:42

began. Alif Lam Meem. The Li Kalki tabula rasa Buffy, who de Lille Motrin

00:00:43--> 00:00:51

that this book in which there is no doubt is Huda is a guidance for mankind.

00:00:52--> 00:01:01

Then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to mention five attributes of the believers.

00:01:03--> 00:01:11

Five attributes. The first of these attributes is a Lavina. You may know Nabila hype,

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

those who have belief

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

in Allah hype.

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

And hype is translated as the unseen

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

and that is everything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed us of

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

that we have not witnessed.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

For example, the mother aka the angels,

00:01:35--> 00:01:44

previous revelations, previous messengers, even our beloved Nabi sallallahu, we did not witness him. This is part of

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

for us, it's of course, it's from our perspective, it's something unseen, that the prophet Elijah said, and we didn't meet him, not for the Sahaba Of course,

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

also the last day

00:01:58--> 00:02:04

elkader, the Divine Decree, Sheree, he will hiree it's evil and it's good.

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

And everything that Allah subhanaw taala spoke about in an or an or that was described to us by the prophet sallallahu wasallam, which is considered from the unseen

00:02:16--> 00:02:24

that this book is a guidance for those allatheena You mean una will hype that those who have Eman full belief

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

in

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

the unseen

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

why up moon, Euler

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

and those who established the prayer,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

and we spoke about this in a previous

00:02:41--> 00:03:05

lesson about the karma to solar, and that is, from a general view, that is to establish the five daily prayers and more specific, it's more specifically, your karma to Salah in that, that the servant will offer the prayers in a way that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam prayed as he told us, so Luke, Mr. Mooney, solly pray as you have seen me, praying

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

woman merasa corner who movie goon

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

and that

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

what we have

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

given you from risk from provisions, you feel

00:03:25--> 00:03:36

that they will give that out and they will give that as a charity This is the third the third characteristic so the first one was an image and we'll have a belief in the unseen

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

number two establishing the prayer

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

number three is giving charity

00:03:46--> 00:03:56

but bear in mind what Allah so panel dialysis mymail Rosa Kona home from that what we sustained them with that what we gave to them

00:03:57--> 00:04:04

as opposed to a servant thinking that what I gained or that what I earned.

00:04:05--> 00:04:18

Here last panel data is informed informing us and to spend out what We have provided for them. So all sustenance and all provisions. Ultimately it comes from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

And if you look at these first three,

00:04:27--> 00:04:30

the first three characteristics This is

00:04:33--> 00:04:45

very similar to that what you find in the hadith of Ibn Ahmad radi Allahu anhu and that is Islam being built upon five booney al Islam Allah humps

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

this hadith is in both Bukhari and Muslim that Islam is built upon five,

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

testifying that there was no deity worthy of worship except Allah and then Mohammed elessar salaam is the Messenger of Allah establishing the prayer

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

giving charity, the first three pillars. And then of course the fourth one fasting Ramadan and making the pilgrimage to the Kaaba.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

The fourth characteristic

00:05:19--> 00:05:40

that will also pass panel to add dimensions is what levina You mean una Bhima una de la la como una de la mina public and those who have imen and levena you me noon, those who have belief in that what has been revealed to you

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

and that what was revealed before you

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

is not only having belief in an N

00:05:48--> 00:05:57

but also having belief in all the previous revelations that Allah subhanaw taala sent down that we know and what we don't know.

00:05:59--> 00:06:11

So revelations that were sent down to what Allah has informed us of the Injeel which was given to a Salah Salem the Torah, which was given to Musashi Salaam there's a board which was given to download,

00:06:12--> 00:06:27

and the syrup which was given to me by him. Likewise, musallam SLM, these were, these are revelations that we accept, and we have belief in them. They were the column of a law, they were the speech of Allah subhanaw taala that were given to particular nations.

00:06:31--> 00:06:41

And the fact that allows Magellan mentions not only earn, but also other books that were revealed. Other revelations shows the importance of us stating that

00:06:42--> 00:07:01

Moloch because Allah subhanaw taala mentions in a number of places in the Quran, where Allah as was mentioned, other revelations that were mentioned. Like for example, in sort of Nyssa in verse 136, what Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:04--> 00:07:20

tells us, oh, you who believe believe in Allah and His messenger and the book, Al Quran is the meanings which he has revealed to the messenger and the book which he subhanaw taala sent to his sent to them before.

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

And likewise you find in Surah Nisa

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

in verse number 47, as well.

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

And in soda Toma either in verse number 68.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

And again, in Surat Al Baqarah, in verse 2200 285.

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

We do not differentiate our belief our Eman in all of the

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

textual

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

revelations that were given to the prophets neither do we

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

differentiate between the messages.

00:08:00--> 00:08:17

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in Surah, Nisa, and 100 and verse 152, when levina a man who will he was really what am you Frederick Cobain ah ha de Minho. And those who believe in Allah and His messengers, and make no distinction between any of them.

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

So it is part of our belief

00:08:24--> 00:08:29

to believe in all of the revelations that our last panel data sent to previous nations.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Now

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

concerning previous revelations, it was important for us to know that they were distorted the true message

00:08:44--> 00:08:51

that was revealed by Allah subhanaw taala in his previous relations revelations, is no longer in its pure form.

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

So Allah subhanaw taala said Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose Mohammed Salaam and said to him Alcor n,

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

which serves as a protected and preserved message

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

of what Allah subhanaw taala requires from his creation.

00:09:12--> 00:09:12

Now

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

Musashi Salim

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

and Elisa Elisa,

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

they were two of the most

00:09:26--> 00:09:31

blessed messengers that Allah subhanaw taala chose from amongst the mankind.

00:09:33--> 00:09:41

In fact, some of them have they said they are from the EU. They are from the five greatest messengers those who had great and strong resolve.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

So musala salaam was given the Torah. Recently, Saddam was given the Injeel these two messengers were sent to who they were sent to Venezuela.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

They were sent to benefits.

00:09:54--> 00:09:54

Okay.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Now benefits are ill is not the whole of the dunya

00:10:01--> 00:10:08

Men of Israel is not every single person on this earth. So the revelation that Allah subhanaw taala gave to Israel.

00:10:09--> 00:10:10

Is that valid

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

for other people?

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

I'll say something further as well, to make it clearer what I'm saying.

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

That when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was chosen as a messenger

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

that was an abbey at that time,

00:10:32--> 00:10:40

that his wife Heidi God, Allah, her and her, took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to what octave Nova,

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

who at that time, but Nasir who became or become a Christian,

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

and was reading Christian scripture.

00:10:51--> 00:11:00

Now, what aka rhodiola and who was from Bennett, Israel? No, he was not from better Israel. You're from an Arab?

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

So what was the Arabs doing reading the revelation?

00:11:07--> 00:11:10

Or parts of the revelation that was given to Israel? He

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

is an important question.

00:11:14--> 00:11:23

Because here you may be thinking that Allah subhanaw taala is now choosing certain nations to have revelation and neglecting others. This is not the case.

00:11:24--> 00:11:31

Because Allah subhanaw taala tells us in sort of 31 Maha locked virgin, I will insert a label.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

When Allah subhanaw taala created Adam,

00:11:35--> 00:12:02

Eliza, Jill created Adam, that Adam and Adam would worship Allah subhanaw taala created jinn that they would worship Allah alone, and all revelations that came throughout time before Moosa and before he said to him and sent him the same message was propagated amongst people. Now, the fact that one particular messenger was sent to a particular people was reinforcing the message amongst that people. But it didn't mean

00:12:03--> 00:12:09

that the message of a towhead which is of course, in all of them, is not applicable to other people.

00:12:11--> 00:12:12

So when Wanaka

00:12:13--> 00:12:20

for the Allahu anhu, he saw here that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam had been chosen by Allah subhanaw taala. He knew and he realized

00:12:22--> 00:13:06

that the those revelations at prophesised are coming of a new messenger. And he recognized that that was in fact the Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and accepted Islam. He embraced Islam and very shortly after that he that he died. Yes, it's well it's widely known that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was the first of the men to embrace Islam from this oma. Now, however, they might have said that what a karate ally who had accepted the message from that what he knew on those first aid that was given to the Prophet alayhi wa sallam after then it became clearer. And for that reason they say from this, if you like that Abu Bakr radi Allahu was chosen or seen as the first man to embrace

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

Islam from from the ummah.

00:13:11--> 00:13:43

Okay, so these are the, the third, the third characteristic, or the fourth, I should say that the last panel that Allah mentions concerning the believers, the first one is belief in unseen, establishing the prayer, giving charity or given from the provisions that allows Israel is given to us. The fourth one was to have belief in that what the laws of God gave to us, all of it, without exception, without picking and choosing everything, but our last panel that revealed to us in an urn is applicable

00:13:44--> 00:14:03

at all times in any situation and it's not allowed for any Muslim or any individual to say that this part of the Quran is no longer applicable, unless the area has been abrogated, and that there are clear evidences to to establish that

00:14:06--> 00:14:21

in fact, that this was the practice of previous nations that they would have believed in part of the revelation and that they would leave part of the revelation and these are two that are not too not too far into saltimbocca and we will discuss them shortly inshallah Tada.

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

So that was the fourth

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

characteristic. The fifth one is Allah subhanaw taala says, will be a hero to whom up noon

00:14:33--> 00:14:38

and that in the Hereafter, that they have full certainty.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

A certainty is that knowledge or that acceptance of something without any doubt at all, without the need to do whatever it is, that the person accepts that as it is, that everything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed

00:15:01--> 00:15:21

Concerning the era, the resurrection that will happen after death, and that what follows from the affairs of Yeoman PM, the weighing of the deeds or the person or the scrolls, and everything that will happen, that the person has full yaqeen full certainty in that.

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

So these characteristics which are five, Allah subhanaw taala says Allah,

00:15:29--> 00:15:40

those are these people, that allows a panel that has just described they are highly Buddha, they are upon guidance.

00:15:41--> 00:15:53

They are upon a neuro Manila, they are upon a light from Allah subhanaw taala. They have been given an insight from Allah subhanaw taala what Allah aka whom Allah Mosley Hoon

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

and they are the successful ones,

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

that they are successful in this life and that they are successful in the Hereafter,

00:16:05--> 00:16:27

that they shall have that what they used to seek in this life, that Allah azzawajal will grant them by His mercy agenda. And Allah subhanaw taala will give them eternal rewards, that what they will find in the paradise and that they will have safety, from the torment that Allah subhanaw taala has prepared for those who disbelieved.

00:16:29--> 00:16:36

So Allah subhanaw taala, begins Surah Al Baqarah with the description of the believers.

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

And some of the most important characteristic characteristics I mentioned here,

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

beginning with belief in the unseen

00:16:49--> 00:17:15

establish establishing prayer, giving charity or giving from provisions, having belief in the previous messengers and the messenger, the message as well it was given to them the revelation and having certainty have been European in the affairs of the Hereafter, that these people are upon who the man or woman and that they are the successful ones.

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

Then Allah subhanaw taala after describing

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

and telling us

00:17:23--> 00:17:32

who the believers are, Allah subhanaw taala then informs us who are the opposite of this, who would opposite of these people.

00:17:34--> 00:17:38

And here in two verses, verses number six and verse number seven,

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

Allah subhanaw taala says, in an levina Kapha Russa Ali

00:17:46--> 00:17:58

M. Lambton Did you mean katama Allahu Allah kulu be him Wallace marry him. What about Swati him Alicia what what a mother Boone Alvin

00:18:01--> 00:18:10

that verily those who disbelieve it is the same to them whether you want them or you do not want them, they will not believe.

00:18:14--> 00:18:24

This is the first verse in numbers, verse number six, which will, we'll discuss now. So in levina, cafaro indeed, of verily those who disbelieve

00:18:25--> 00:18:33

so Allah subhanaw taala described to us the believers now allies of gel is going to describe some characteristics of the disbelievers.

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

The fact that there's only two verses means that it'll be concise and to the point.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

So the disbelievers are who

00:18:46--> 00:18:49

allatheena cafaro from the word Kapha means to cover or to hide.

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

So our character is the singular and kuffaar which is the plural of those who have hidden, they've chosen to hit hide their belief.

00:19:01--> 00:19:09

Not from Norfolk, Norfolk hypocrisy, because we'll discuss that shortly. But they've openly chose to

00:19:11--> 00:19:16

reject the truth. They're hiding it not interested in it anymore or not at all.

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

So these people,

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

Allah subhanaw taala has misguided they have been misguided because they are not deserving.

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

Is this where

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

Allah subhanaw taala guides those who are deserving and the good people

00:19:41--> 00:19:45

and Allah subhana wa tada misguides those who are not deserving

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

and,

00:19:49--> 00:19:57

number one, we are not to question Allah subhanaw taala because he is the owner of the dominion.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

Allah azza wa jal owns everything

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Within the creation, and we are part of the creation

00:20:05--> 00:20:12

of Allah subhanaw taala. For Ireland Lima you read that he supernote Allah does as he wants.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

But Allah subhanaw taala being Allah JAL, Nevada,

00:20:18--> 00:20:29

we know that in Allah Allah yo Lima with call of Allah, that Allah azza wa jal will not oppress a mustard, grey mustard seed of anything.

00:20:31--> 00:20:55

Mustard, green seed of any form of oppression to anything, that there is complete, complete justice and complete fairness. In anything that happens in this universe. Even though we may not see that, we may not understand that, that our perception or understanding of any one situation will always be restricted.

00:20:57--> 00:21:10

You must always remember that whatever you look at your understanding, it's always restricted, you always restrict the situation, to your understanding.

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

We are all blessed with different levels of understanding intellect, all of us different levels.

00:21:19--> 00:21:30

So a five year old child, or 10 year old child, a 15 year old child, a 30 year old adult, or looking at the same situation,

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

they will all look at it differently and have their own interpretation and understanding of it.

00:21:38--> 00:21:46

That's a clear example. Because then we can say what the different ages are, their understandings of the situation will differ because of their age.

00:21:47--> 00:21:47

Also,

00:21:49--> 00:22:00

when you find that people are at college or university, for example, they're at an age where they have studied, they've worked hard for the exams.

00:22:01--> 00:22:16

And at the end, does everybody get the same Mark? No, they don't. Not everybody gets the same mark, they get different marks, he gets an A, she gets an A star, he gets he gets a seat, they give him marks because they have different levels of understanding and perception.

00:22:17--> 00:22:52

This is something that they've studied for something they're actually going into, what about things that we may pass by? And we may see a small cross section of an incident? Why did this happen? Why did that happen? This shouldn't have happened. Why does this you know a such a people being afflicted? Why do they Why does such people get you know so many things and blessed it seems to be blessed. It's not for us to pass judgment, we should say and we should know for sure and have certainty of that this is all part of Allah subhanaw taala his plan.

00:22:53--> 00:23:31

And this is all part of Allah as either mercy or justice and it can involve punishment at times. So if a person is deemed to be misguided is because ultimately in their life that they will make choices and they will be a people deserving of being from the Hellfire, you may meet them for five minutes and then maybe a nice person for five minutes, however, the rest of their life or they may do something in their life, which will then render them to be from the people have held fire, which is beyond your comprehension. So it's never fair for you to make a judgment of that. So the fact that Allah subhanaw taala may misguide certain people, that is because they are not deserving of

00:23:31--> 00:23:39

Islam. They are not deserving of the greatest nightmare that can be given to any of the Hulk and that is to become a servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:23:41--> 00:23:47

So these people whom Allah subhanaw taala misguides Allah subhanaw taala says concerning them, it is the same.

00:23:49--> 00:24:11

And here it confirms when we speaking about the different types of hidayah different types of guidance that he did tofik the guidance which is the guidance of success, of accepting the message of Allah azza wa jal, this is from Allah subhanaw taala, not from you and I. So Allah subhanaw taala says so on him, it is the same to them, and that

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

you want them don't want them matches not certain people will not be guided. Learn, you mean that they will not believe

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

there are times when you can.

00:24:25--> 00:24:35

You can meet a person, you can explain Islam to them, and you can make it as simple and as digestible and as logical as you possibly can.

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

That the belief that they currently have, and the lifestyle they're following, that you can talk about it and you can talk about its falseness and the misguidance and what it will lead them to, and they will not and they will say yes, it is wrong. I shouldn't be doing this. I should be living a life, of purity of goodness and fairness and worship.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

The Creator that whom I recognize,

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

and then they will walk away.

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

And they will continue what they were doing and that they won't believe.

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

This is from Allah subhanaw taala. And many a time, you may come across

00:25:18--> 00:25:37

a million times, I've seen it myself many times. But you can see a person that you've explained Islam in a very simple way. And, you know, in principle, they accept it. They accept it. And I challenge to panela that, in principle, because guidance is not in our hands.

00:25:38--> 00:25:46

In principle, if you sit and you have enough time with a person, regardless of what they believe, regardless of what they follow,

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

you can give them a way of life, which is superior.

00:25:51--> 00:25:58

If you explain Islam, as it should be explained to them, you will always have a superior way of life to offer them

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

always, because Islam is a superior way of life than other ways of life.

00:26:06--> 00:26:40

This is somebody whose opinion somebody may disagree with that, and say, Well, I believe that another way of life is superior to Islam. Well, that's the good thing, that we all have that option of having an opinion, I'm not going to force you to have to accept my opinion. It's my opinion, nonetheless, while I personally believe, and a Muslim would personally believe that they could all they always have the upper hand in that I can explain to you a purer way of life. So the Muslim should never be ashamed. The Muslim should never feel as though that

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

or embarrassed even what they are following.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

A Lost Planet Allah has given us

00:26:50--> 00:27:01

a guidance from him, which is superior, mere fact that it is by default, this formula is rigid. It supersedes all ways of life. However,

00:27:02--> 00:27:22

that person may not accept it. If they don't, you cannot force them. Let ekkada have hidden there is no compulsion in religion. You cannot force them. You cannot force that person to pray or to believe in Allah. It will be from Allah subhanaw taala they will be the guided one. If Allah azza wa jal deems that they are to be guided.

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

So some people, whether you've warned them or not, that they will just disbelief

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

that Allah subhanaw taala then further explains

00:27:36--> 00:27:39

katama Allahu Allah kulu be him.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

That Allah subhanaw taala sealed their heart's

00:27:46--> 00:28:02

content, they said this ayah means Rahim Allah, that shape on control them and when they when they obeyed Him. Therefore Allah sealed their hearts, hearing and their sight. And they could neither see that guidance nor here, comprehend or understand it.

00:28:07--> 00:28:13

So Allah subhanaw taala placed a seal over their hearts, what Allah said, marry him.

00:28:14--> 00:28:21

And by that what they hear when I look at him, and over their eyes.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

So at times,

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

when you try to explain Islam in many different ways, you can see that that person is sealed.

00:28:36--> 00:28:49

Ultimately, we don't know the outcome of that person. In 10 years time, if they're given life, maybe they will be guided. But here Allah subhanaw taala is saying that there are certain people who will not be guided because of the evil.

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

We're not to know that.

00:28:53--> 00:29:14

If you meet the person, you can say that person see if that's it's finished. No, you can't. You can't place that judgment. Because you don't know the future. I lost count on him a guide that person what is upon us to deliver the message of Islam. However, he allows you to this describing to us and telling us amongst his creation for mankind, there are believers and then there are disbelievers,

00:29:16--> 00:29:45

for us to understand Okay, their disbelief of why they disbelieved what's the situation with them, allies that have sealed their hearts, seal them, their ears, and their eyes, that they are unable to see the Huck are unable to see the guidance. But why would Allah azza wa jal do that. Go back to what we mentioned earlier. There are many things that we are not privy to that we don't know. But that this is the state of a person we know that this is what they are deserving or not to be given Islam.

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

So Hotham, Allahu Allah khudobin that Allah has set a seal on their hearts

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

like a stamp, and it occurs when a sin resides in the heart and surrounds it from all sides.

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

And this submersion of the heart in sin constitutes stamp, meaning like a seal.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

So these two verses Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:30:24--> 00:30:31

the description of the disbelievers. There is another verse that you didn't get here dimensions. In Surah Nisa in verse 155.

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

Well Allah subhanaw taala says Bella Baba Allahu alayhi buccafurri him.

00:30:38--> 00:30:44

The indeed ne Allah has set the seal upon their hearts because of the disbelief.

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

He also mentioned even considered

00:30:57--> 00:30:57

Hadith

00:30:59--> 00:31:10

and this hadith in Sahih Muslim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to urato will fit into another Guru beaconhouse Odin Odin that the Fitton

00:31:11--> 00:31:19

offered to the hearts just as they the straws are sewn into the woven mat, one after the other.

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

Any heart that accepts this fitna, then a black dot will be engraved on it.

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

Any heart that rejects that Fitton,

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

the then a white dot will be engraved on it, the heart or the hearts will then become one of two categories. White, just like the barren rock, no fitna should ever harm it.

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

As long as the heavens and the earth are in existence.

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

And another category is the black heart.

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

Just as the cup that is turned upside down,

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

it cannot keep anything on it.

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

For this heart does not recognize righteousness, or renounce evil.

00:32:07--> 00:32:17

So just a brief understanding of this idea that the person or the value add them, all of us will be tested with many trials continuously all the time.

00:32:19--> 00:32:26

And that the person who falls into sin falls into even succumbs to the fitna, then the heart will begin to change.

00:32:29--> 00:32:42

black dots will appear on that heart until they continue like that will become a black heart. But if they begin to protect themselves from the sins from these trials and tribulations, then they will have a strong heart of pure heart.

00:32:44--> 00:33:00

And that they will not be affected by Fitton. As long as the heavens and the earth are in existence. That evil wrong heart, which is now black, as the Prophet salallahu Irishman says, does not recognize righteousness or renounce evil.

00:33:01--> 00:33:07

So we understand that the good heart does understand what righteousness is, and does renounce evil.

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

The black heart does not do that.

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

So you may

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

come across or live in a time when

00:33:17--> 00:33:37

people are so engaged in sin, that when you command the good forbid the evil, they do not understand what you are talking about. Because they don't have no concept of what is good, or what is bad, what is evil, what is righteousness,

00:33:38--> 00:33:43

that culture, or the times that they move through will dictate

00:33:44--> 00:34:05

not guidance from Allah subhanaw taala. But the social norms amongst the people will dictate that what's righteousness, that's what's good, and what is evil. So, you will find that what was evil 20 or 30 years ago, that was looked down upon is now widely accepted and even promoted.

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

And that we

00:34:09--> 00:34:19

is even possibly illegal, if you like, and wrong evil in 2014 was to say, in 2024, if this only exists,

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

that

00:34:22--> 00:34:25

what we see as evil now could be something promoted.

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

So

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

going back to what we're talking about,

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

and that is the preservation of our hearts on those who have been misguided allies, which then has sealed their hearts because of the sin and evil they have engaged in.

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

So Allah subhanaw taala says

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

that he set the scene the hearts on the hearings were either above Swati, him Alicia and put the covering over there.

00:35:03--> 00:35:18

So as you can see here, he says, Alicia we're covering is accurate, what it means for the stamp that is placed on the heart and the hearing, while the ratio is covering appropriately placed over the ice.

00:35:20--> 00:35:28

So there was a Hutton, there was a seal on the heart, and there was a seal of the hearing. And there's a covering of the ice.

00:35:32--> 00:35:40

So Allah subhanaw taala, set a seal on their hearts and the hearings, so that they could neither understand nor could they hear.

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

Because the heart is the place of understanding.

00:35:45--> 00:35:50

And your eyes is from that what you will, you will rather your hearings that we are going to see here rather.

00:35:52--> 00:35:59

So there is a seal over that. And lastly, that there is a shower, there was a covering over the eyes.

00:36:01--> 00:36:02

So recognize that

00:36:04--> 00:36:28

you can deliver the message of Islam, you've made it as clear as possible, as logical as possible to make clear as possible that what they are believing in is wrong is false and they will agree with you. However, they will not be guided right then or may not never be guided. But you have delivered the message and that is all that is required of you.

00:36:30--> 00:36:41

As Allah subhanaw taala he tells us in nema 10 avails to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but you are only a warner.

00:36:43--> 00:36:52

One law who Allah Konishi in Joaquin, and there are lots of penalties to kill the dispose of affairs over all things.

00:36:54--> 00:37:05

And likewise, Allah subhanaw taala says for in NEMA Ira calvillo what Eileen and he said that your duty is only to deliver the message and on us is the reckoning.

00:37:07--> 00:37:10

So as delivering guidance to people it's not it's not in our hands.

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

So after describing

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

the believers,

00:37:18--> 00:37:30

and then allows you to describe the disbelievers very, very short in a short when two verses. Is there a third type of people or is it there are two camps

00:37:32--> 00:37:38

because those who enter the Gen. Moon, the believers the Muslim moon

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

those who will enter the Hellfire are Kufa

00:37:44--> 00:37:47

the disbelievers, those who rejected Allah subhanaw taala.

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

However, Allah subhanaw taala describes

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

a third type of people.

00:37:56--> 00:38:22

Now this third type of people, there is a great deal of explanation concerning them. Because the affair of the believers clear, clear, black and white. These are the believers this is what they accept, this is what they follow the disbelievers this is what they follow. This is the way that they want to live their lives, it's very clear, doesn't need vast explanation of the nature of these people.

00:38:23--> 00:38:29

However, there is a third type of person and they are the monarchy, hypocrites.

00:38:30--> 00:38:37

And here are lots of penalty either mentions a number of verses concerning the motor vehicle.

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

And that is because

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

of the

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

deceptive and hidden nature.

00:38:50--> 00:38:56

Because they appear to be one thing, when in actual fact that they are something else.

00:38:57--> 00:39:00

It is something hidden from us.

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

So I'll move on from the word nataka.

00:39:06--> 00:39:26

What does that mean? neofolk hypocrisy you know a tunnel is called enough UK and Arabic enough that what goes underneath something through a mountain for example or whatever you're going to put a tunnel through something which you appear, it looks solid it looks hold, but in fact that there is something going through

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

what is a monolithic

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

Alma Norfolk

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

all those who show belief

00:39:39--> 00:39:45

externally, outwardly that they will show belief in Allah

00:39:46--> 00:39:49

but internally, they will hide Kufa

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

they will hide their disbelief.

00:39:54--> 00:39:57

So since the matter of the hypocrites is vague

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

and many people do not

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

Know how to really understand or know the true reality. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned their description in detail.

00:40:09--> 00:40:17

Each of their characteristics that allows us to describe them, describe them with is a type of hypocrisy itself.

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

And there are other chapters in the code earn.

00:40:23--> 00:40:34

For example, sort of to the bar, or sort of the tilba and verse number nine, there's a big exposition concerning the moon, moon, and in fact, that there was a chapter chapter 63, Surah tomonaga

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

the chapter of the hypocrites

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

and that there is also a description of the Manasa code in Surah Noor as well.

00:40:47--> 00:40:54

So, neofolk means to show conformity, to show agreement, but to conceal evil.

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

And there are two types of

00:41:03--> 00:41:08

two types. There is hypocrisy in creed, in belief.

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

And it is this type of nifa

00:41:15--> 00:41:20

which will cause an individual to reside in Hellfire for eternity.

00:41:23--> 00:41:25

So, that is the one that is

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

who externally says I am a Muslim may pray with people may give charity may fast with people may do acts of worship amongst the believers.

00:41:40--> 00:41:47

But their belief their creed is actually not in line with their actions.

00:41:48--> 00:41:54

In fact that they are concealing and hiding cover disbelief. Rejection

00:41:58--> 00:42:01

The second type of an effect is NIF acuna, Emily.

00:42:03--> 00:42:12

So the first one is the Falcon arkadi and the Falcon ones belief. The second one is the Falcon family hypocrisy in one's actions.

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

And this may occur by a

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

person committing a major sin.

00:42:22--> 00:42:27

Okay, there are certain characteristics that the monarchy of corn are known for,

00:42:29--> 00:42:32

which we will discuss shortly and Allah subhanaw taala mentions them as well.

00:42:33--> 00:42:52

So there may be certain deeds, that the hypocrisy the hypocrites are known for. Now, if a person a believer may fall into one of these actions, may do the action of the hypocrites. This doesn't mean that they are now like those who have any fault in their belief.

00:42:54--> 00:43:25

This is not the case, those who have new Falcon the belief means that, that they have rejected Islam that's it that they don't like Islam, they're just doing it for a front for the people. However, and if upon amily, hypocrisy in action or deed, is that they have belief in Allah subhanaw taala. They try their best, however, that they may do an action which may be from the actions of a people that had difficulty if he speaks he lies. This is like an attribute from the hypocrites

00:43:26--> 00:44:10

without to minahan if he's given a trust, he deceives these are deeds these are actions which the hippo the hypocrites are known for. If a believer did that, a Muslim did that. It doesn't mean that they are in the lowest pits of the hellfire. But no, they have committed major sin. And if they continue doing these kind of deeds, that it may draw them towards these types of people, based upon what we mentioned early in the term in terms of how sins will affect a person, if they can keep committing sins, sins, sins, sins and sins, till their heart becomes black, that they don't know what good is what righteousness is and what is bad, then they of course, inevitably, the heart may

00:44:10--> 00:44:10

become

00:44:12--> 00:44:16

misguided and then they have become a disbeliever because of their actions and what they're involved in.

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

So the beginnings of hypocrisy.

00:44:26--> 00:44:28

The revelations concerning the monarchy are gone

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

and the characteristics of the mafia born began in Ella Medina.

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

This is because they will no wonder if you're born in hypocrite in Makkah.

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

Now it is very simple to understand why there were no munaf yakun in MK

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Sahaba they were in Makkah for 13 years and eventually they had to leave

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

because

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

of the persecution and because of the difficulties that they were going through.

00:45:06--> 00:45:19

Now, why would an individual Why would a person who doesn't believe in this remain in Makkah, and you know, receive punishment and be persecuted for nothing?

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

Because

00:45:23--> 00:45:27

this the hypocrite doesn't believe in Islam.

00:45:28--> 00:45:36

they've rejected Islam they're portrayed in a portraying another external picture of themselves but internally, they have rejected Islam.

00:45:38--> 00:45:44

Even though they may think they actually believe they have tricked themselves, as we will shortly describe,

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

only when in Medina, so it is clear why that is more difficult.

00:45:50--> 00:45:59

To be a Muslim in Makkah means that you're going to be persecuted very difficult life, the monarch was not going to do that. I don't even have to do that. Only in Medina where the Muslims had

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

a safe haven. It was

00:46:06--> 00:46:14

permissible and allowed for them to freely practice Islam without any fear of being persecuted or punished or fear of an enemy.

00:46:15--> 00:46:21

Here the hypocrites that they could hide amongst the Muslims, they could hide.

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

So here you find the last panel to Allah then explaining the characteristics of the motor vehicle.

00:46:31--> 00:46:38

In fact, the reality is zipline cathedra Rahim Allah. He said that the opposite was in Makkah, people pretended

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

to be Muslims. There were some people because of the intense

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

persecution and punishment. There were those people who uttered words of disbelief so that they wouldn't be punished.

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

To protect their Deen they had a man

00:46:58--> 00:47:15

and they were not rendered to be disbelievers. They wanted to protect their Islam by saying certain words to people so that they will be left alone. So they wouldn't be murdered. Or they wouldn't be the they weren't stolen. So they said certain things which be could be considered covert.

00:47:17--> 00:47:24

However, alas, Panda was aware of the situation. So the opposite was in. It's in Makkah from El Medina.

00:47:25--> 00:47:35

Now, there were two tribes that accepted Islam in the Medina Arsenal has allege these two tribes before Islam were

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

idolatrous tribes, these two worship different idols.

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

Also in Medina, there were three other tribes.

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

They were by New Canaan,

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

by Nunavut

00:47:50--> 00:47:56

and Ben ocurrido. These were three Jewish tribes that resided in El Medina,

00:47:57--> 00:48:00

of these five tribes to accept that Islam also has a lodge.

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

Now

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

does anybody know

00:48:13--> 00:48:20

of these two tribes who was the leader of these two tribes, the leaders of these two tribes, because tribes that have tribal leaders,

00:48:22--> 00:48:23

tribal leaders,

00:48:24--> 00:48:25

yes, Olson has a rich

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

man, Seidman.

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

Sadly, nobody was of college and you have a good

00:48:44--> 00:48:58

mouth, sided mouth was the side of us that will answer the audience on watercolor well done. So these were the two tribal leaders, sadly, most

00:48:59--> 00:49:07

of us, and sadly, provider of cartilage, these are the two tribal leaders, and they embraced Islam hamdulillah.

00:49:09--> 00:49:15

And they proclaimed that Islam openly and two well known companions that are the Allahu anhu.

00:49:16--> 00:49:20

Now amongst these people, from the tribes, others,

00:49:21--> 00:49:27

that they hid their coffin, there was an opportunity for them to create mischief.

00:49:29--> 00:49:45

Now, before the coming of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is good if you read the series as well, that there is some, you know, some pretext to what happened. And that there was a person that was going to be named like almost like the king of what was known then as yathrib.

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

And his name was Abdullah hypnobabies Salut.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to tribes embraced Islam, gave back

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

To Him.

00:50:02--> 00:50:03

And there was an agreement in Medina

00:50:05--> 00:50:09

that pretty much that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was, was in charge.

00:50:10--> 00:50:14

Islam had essentially been given rule.

00:50:16--> 00:50:21

Now his position as being leader King was no longer an option. So he was upset.

00:50:23--> 00:50:28

So, he was the head of the monarchy. We can say that retrospect Will you know that no.

00:50:32--> 00:50:34

So him and other people, they hid their coffin.

00:50:36--> 00:50:46
