AYAH 69

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ آذَوْا مُوسَى فَبَرَّأَهُ اللَّهُ مِمَّا قَالُوا وَكَانَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَجِيهًا

O you who believe! Be not like those who annoyed Musa (Moses), but Allah cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honorable before Allah. (Al-Ahzab 33:69)

There is a reason why Allah revealed this ayah
- Musa was a very shy person just like all the other prophets
- and Muhammad (SAW) was also very shy
- Musa (AS) didn’t expose his body to Bani Israel
- they started to say he had leprosy or scrotal hernia
- Allah cleared Musa of this accusation of Bani Israel in this ayah
- Allah cleared Musa’s name by making Bani Israel see the body of Musa

Narrated By Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "(The Prophet) Moses was a shy person and used to cover his body completely because of his extensive shyness. One of the children of Israel hurt him by saying, 'He covers his body in this way only because of some defect in his skin, either leprosy or scrotal hernia, or he has some other defect.' Allah wished to clear Moses of what they said about him, so one day while Moses was in seclusion, he took off his clothes and put them on a stone and started taking a bath. When he had finished the bath, he moved towards his clothes so as to take them, but the stone took his clothes and fled; Moses picked up his stick and ran after the stone saying, 'O stone! Give me my garment!' Till he reached a group of Bani Israel who saw him naked then, and found him the best of what Allah had created, and Allah cleared him of what they had accused him of. The stone stopped there and Moses took and put his garment on and started hitting the stone with his stick. By Allah, the stone still has some traces of the hitting, three, four or five marks. This was what Allah refers to in His Saying: "O you who believe! Be you not like those Who annoyed Moses, But Allah proved his innocence of that which they alleged, And he was honorable In Allah's Sight." (33.69) [Sahih Bukhari (4/156-157) No. 3404]

THERE ARE MANY LESSONS FROM THIS AYAH

1. THE KUFFAAR LIKE TO SEE NAKEDNESS
- you are not allowed to show your nakedness
- the sahabah asked the prophet (SAW) who can see ones private parts

Bahz ibn Hakim reported from his father who from his grandfather that he asked the Prophet (SAW): 'from whom they should conceal their awrah and from whom not?' He said, “Guard your awrah except from your wife and what your right hand possesses (female slaves).” He asked, “O Messenger of Allah (SAW) what when people are with each other?” He said, “If it is possible that no one may observe your private parts, see that none sees them.” He asked, “O Prophet (SAW) of Allah what if one of us is alone?” He said, “But Allah has more right that people should be ashamed before Him.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/97) No. 2769, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/40) No. 4017, Musnad Ahmad (5/3) No. 20046]

- only your wives/right hand possess can see your private parts
- the kuffaar after they play football shower naked in front of each other
- you cannot do this as a Muslim
- you’re not allowed to show your private parts to anyone,
- not even to another man or women
- women are not allowed to go to the salon to get private areas waxed

We also learn that Musa's body was one of the most beautiful bodies Allah created

2. THE SHAYTAN LIKES TO LOOK AT THE NAKED BODIES OF PEOPLE

Allah said:

O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitan (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents [Adam and Hawwa (Eve)] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabiluhu (his soldiers from the jinns or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayatin (devils) Auliya' (protectors and helpers) for those who believe not. (Al-A'raf 7:27)

- so not only the kuffaar like to look at the naked bodies of people,
- this is also what the shaytan likes to do
- Allah told us this

3. THE JEWS LIKE TO SLANDER THE PROPHETS
- they spread the rumor that Musa had leprosy
- also Qaroon said Musa had an affair
- but Allah commanded the earth to swallow Qaroon and his palace
- till this day, he is sinking further and further

And because of their (Jews) disbelief and uttering against Maryam (Mary) a grave false charge (that she has committed illegal sexual intercourse); (An-Nisa 4:156)

- Allah told us the Jews accused Maryam of committing illegal sexual intercourse
- on YouTube the Jews sang a song 'Jesus is a bastard' -a'uthubilah
- but still the Christians love the Jews

JEWS SINGING: “JESUS IS A BASTARD”:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KliaqV1uYDs


Christians are hypocrites, how can you love someone that calls your god a bastard
- the Christians say they love Jesus but this is fake
- Jesus was slandered by the Jews, so were previous prophets
- prophet Lot was accused of sleeping with his 2 daughters and impregnating them

(Genesis 19:30-38) King James Version
30. And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31. And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
32. Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37. And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
38. And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

The Jews also accuse Allah

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)." (Aali Imran 3:181)

- they say Allah is poor
- then they denied they said it and Abu Bakr punched the Jew
- so the Jews don’t only slander the prophets, they slander Allah

(Verily Allah heard the saying of those who said…) [3:181]. ‘Ikrimah, al-Suddi and Muqatil ibn Ishaq related that, one day, Abu Bakr al-Siddiq entered a Jewish place of study and found a group of Jewish people gathered around one of them called Finhas ibn ‘Azura, who was one of their doctors. Abu Bakr said to Finhas: “Fear Allah and embrace Islam, for by Allah you know well that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah who has brought the truth to you from Allah. He is mentioned in your Torah; so believe and accept the truth and grant Allah a goodly offering and He will make you enter the Garden and multiply your reward”. Finhas responded: “O Abu Bakr, you claim that our Lord is asking us to lend Him our wealth. Yet, it is only the poor who borrow from the rich. And if what you say is true, it follows that Allah is poor and we are rich, for if He were rich He would not ask us to lend Him our wealth”. Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be well pleased with him, became very angry and struck the face of Finhas with a mighty blow. He then said to him: “By Him in whose Hand is my soul, if it were not for the treaty between us, O enemy of Allah, I would have killed you”. Finhas went to the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, and said: “O Muhammad! Look at what your companion has done to me”. The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, asked Abu Bakr: “What has driven you to do what you have done?” He said: “O Messenger of Allah, this enemy of Allah has said something very serious. He claimed that Allah is poor and they are rich. I therefore got angry for the sake of Allah and hit his face”. But Finhas denied that he ever uttered those words, and so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse (Verily Allah heard the saying of those who said…) to give the lie to Finhas and to confirm that Abu Bakr al-Siddiq said the truth. ‘Abd al-Qahir ibn Tahir informed us> Abu ‘Amr ibn Matar> Ja‘far ibn al-Layth al-Ziyadi> Hudhayfah Musa ibn Mas‘ud> Shibl> Ibn Abi Najih> Mujahid who said: “This verse was revealed about the Jews; Abu Bakr, may Allah be well pleased with him, had struck the face of one of their men who said ‘Allah is poor and we are rich’ ”. Shibl commented: “I was informed that this man was Finhas the Jew, and it is also this man who said: (Allah’s hand is fettered) [5:64]”. [Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi , trans. Mokrane Guezzou]

- we talked about how dangerous the tongue of the woman is
- now we see how dangerous the tongues of the Jews are

The Jews say: "Allah's Hand is tied up (i.e. He does not give and spend of His Bounty)." Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends (of His Bounty) as He wills....(Al-Ma'idah 5:64)

- they say Allah's Hand is tied up

So we have many examples of the Jews slandering the prophets, and now Allah
- the words ‘Hands of Allah are tied’ have 2 meanings
- it means, Allah has no power and Allah is poor

SABRA AND SHATILA MASSACRE:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabra_and_Shatila_massacre

- when the massacre of sabra and Shatila happened
- the Jews said we can do this because Allah's Hands are tied
- the Jews killed 22,000 Muslims

Because the shaytan likes to look at the naked body of people,
- the prophet (SAW) taught us the dua for going to the bathroom

Narrated Anas: Whenever the Prophet went to answer the call of nature, he used to say;
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الخُبُثِ وَالخَبَائِثِ
“Allahumma inni a'uthu bika min al-kubthi wal-khabaa'ith.” (O Allah, I seek refuge in you from the male and female Devils). [al-Bukhari (142) and Muslim (375)]

- you are screened once you recite this dua

4. SHYNESS IS A TRAIT OF THE PROPHETS
- the prophet (SAW) was shy like a virgin

Abu Sa'id Khudri reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) was more modest than the virgin behind the curtain (or in the apartment), and when he disliked anything, we recognized that from his face. [al-Bukhari (6102) and Muslim (5739)]

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) passed by an Ansaari man who was exhorting his brother to be modest. The Messenger of Allaah (SAW) said: “Let him be, for modesty is part of faith.” [al-Bukhaari (24) and Muslim (36)]

Narrated By Abu Mas'ud: The Prophet said, 'One of the sayings of the early Prophets which the people have got is: If you don't feel ashamed do whatever you like." [Sahih Bukhari (4/177) No. 3484]

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Faith has over seventy branches or over sixty branches, the most excellent of which is the declaration that there is no god but Allah, and the humblest of which is the, removal of what is injurious from the path: and modesty is the branch of faith." [al-Bukhari (8) and Muslim (56)]

The prophet (SAW) said shyness is a branch of emaan
- so Musa (AS) was shy because he was a prophet
- shyness and taqwa are interwoven


AYAH 70

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلًا سَدِيدًا

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. (Al-Ahzab 33:70)

This ayah means you should speak straight to the point
- the word 'sadeeda' means always speak to the point
- and you should avoid ambiguities when you speak
- people do this because they want to turn the listener into confused.com

Ali (RA) said, "Speak to people according to what they know. Do you want Allah and His Messenger to be denied?" Abu't-Tufayl related this from 'Ali. [Sahih Bukhari, (Vol. 1, pg.37) No. 127]

- do not use words above the intellectual capacity of the listener
- not every person who is a da’ee is sincere
- if you are sincere about guiding the person
- you'll be straightforward
- you should not beat around the bush, this means that you fear the people

On the authority of Suhail bin Abi Saleh from his father: ‘A man once asked Abu Hurayrah (RA), ‘What is al-taqwa?” He replied, “Have you ever taken a path filled with thorns?” The man replied, “I have.” Abu Hurayrah asked him, “What did you do?” He replied, “When I saw a thorn I would dodge it or pass over it or behind it.” Abu Hurayrah said, “That is al-taqwa.”’ [al-Zuhd al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (p350-351) No. 963]

- taqwa means to keep a barrier between you and the wrath of Allah,
- to abstain from haram and do good
- you are not allowed to beat around the bush
- wasters are the brothers of the shaytan

Beating around the bush, these people are wuss'es, sheelas'
- sister when they have proposals and they have no chemistry,
- they don’t say no to the brother
- this is beating around the bush

On the authority of Abu Sa'id (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Let not any one of you belittle himself." They said: "O Messenger of Allah, how can any one of us belittle himself?" He said: "He finds a matter concerning Allah about which he should say something, and he does not say [it], so Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says to him on the Day of Resurrection: 'What prevented you from saying something about such-and-such and such-and-such?' He will say: 'It was] out of fear of people.' Then He says: 'Rather it is I whom you should more properly fear.'" [Sunan Ibn Majah (5/142) No. 4008, with a sound chain of authorities.]

- so to disgrace yourself is by not enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong
- this is because you fear people
- people become wicked scholars because they fear people

The truth is the reality
- every proven fact is the truth
- else it is a theory, hoax or heresy
- Darwinism is a hoax

The shaytan uses the white man to spread lies
- that’s why they spread Darwinism
- you went to the moon? You want us to believe this?
- why did you go in 1963, and not now?
- whenever something wasn’t proven to be a fact, it becomes a theory
- how do you know something is the truth?

THE 19 REALITIES OF THE TRUTH

1. IT DIVIDES PEOPLE
- like the people of the scriptures,
- they didn’t divide and split until the bayyinah came to them (clear proof)

And the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) differed not until after there came to them clear evidence. (i.e. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and whatever was revealed to him). (Al-Baiyinah 98:4)

2. IT EXPOSES PEOPLE
- so when the truth comes to the community,
- you know who are the sheep and who are the lions
- when the truth came to Makah, it exposed Abu Lahab and Abu Jahl

3. THE TRUTH PUTS YOU ON THE SPOT AND FORCES YOU TO TAKE A STANCE
- when the Jews broke the Sabbath at the time of David
- they put the fish nets out and said they didn’t lift a finger

Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities);  such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)

- this was because of their love for the dunya
- 5:60 is evidence for those who broke the Sabbath were turned into apes and swine
- so the truth puts you on the spot and forces you to take a stance

4. IT FORCES YOU TO PRACTICE AL WALAA WAL BARAA
- al walaa wal baraa is to love and hate for the sake of Allah
- if you do not practice this your Islam is fake
- like the shady Shiites 

5. THE TRUTH MAKES YOU HAPPY
- a believer doesn’t look their age
- you should be happy
- if you’re not happy with your deen you maybe following a deviant sect

6. IT GIVES YOU SELF-CONTENTMENT

Narrated By Abu Huraira (RA): The Prophet (SAW) said, "Riches does not mean, having a great amount of property, but riches is self-contentment." [al-Bukhari (6038) and Muslim (2287)]

- the prophet (SAW) said a rich man is a man with self-contentment
- but if you follow baatil, your life will be depressing

Allah said:

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (Ta-Ha 20:124)

- if you don’t practice the Quran, you will have a sad life
- the kuffaar’s prisons and madhouses are full
- and they live their lives on anti-depressants

7. THE TRUTH SETS YOU FREE
- when you are on the haqq, Islam takes you away from the servitude of man
- to the servitude of Allah
- know the truth, the truth sets you free
- it sets you free from the narrowness of this world to the vastness of the hereafter

"I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given all things that could be possessed by any ruler of the earth, and she has a great throne. (An-Naml 27:23)

"I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, and Shaitan (Satan) has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance," (An-Naml 27:24)

When the bird went to Yemen it saw people worshipping the sun
- what did the bird say?
- when you practice shirk you are owned by someone else, (man)
- and when you practice tauheed you are owned by Allah

8. IT OPENS YOUR EYES TO SHAITAN'S WEB
- shaytan’s strategy never changes
- the plot of Satan never changes
- history repeats itself

9. IT GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG (IT GIVES YOU FURQAAN)

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqan a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (Al-Anfal 8:29

- it is impossible for you to have taqwa until you know the truth
- the truth gives you furqan

Bismillah…


10. THE TRUTH GIVES YOU FIRAASA (INTUITION)

Anas ibn Malik (RA) said: I entered the company of Uthman ibn Affaan (RA) while I was thinking about the beauty of a woman I saw in the street. Uthman (RA) then said: One of you enter my presence and the remnants of zinaa can be seen in his eyes. I then said: Did revelation come down after the departure of the Rasool (SAW)? Uthman said:  But this is the deep insight, foresight and intuition of the believer. [Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, Madaarij as-Saalikeen (Vol. 2, pg. 455)]

- the ability to look into the face of a person and tell whether he's sincere or hypocrite
- this can tell you if the person eats haram, on drugs etc.

11. IT MAKES THE ZANAADIQA GO AGAINST YOU
- these are heretics
- they all hate each other so when they put their differences aside
- and gang up against a message then that message is the truth

12. IT MAKES THE KUFFAAR (ASLEE) GO AGAINST YOU
- this shows that is the truth

And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah - chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism). (Al-Anfal 8:73)

- Allah told you in surah 8:73 that the kuffaar will gang up against you
- if you want to know the truth
- look where the arrows of the kuffaar are shooting
- look at where they are attacking
- they attack all those places that the Rasul (SAW) spoke about

Al-Nu’man b. Bashir, who said: “We were sitting in the masjid of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), and Bashir was a man who did not speak much, so Abu Tha’labah Al-Khashnee came and said: ‘Oh, Bashir bin Sa’ad, have you memorized the words of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) regarding the rulers?’ Huthayfah replied, ‘I have memorized his words’. So Abu Tha’labah sat down and Huthayfah said, ‘The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "There shall be Prophethood (nubuwwa) among you for as long as Allah wishes it to be among you. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be successorship (khilâfa) on the pattern (minhâj) of Prophetship for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be a trying kingship (mulkan 'âddan) for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be a tyrannical kingship (mulkan jabriyyatan) for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be successorship on the pattern of Prophetship." [Musnad Ahmad (4/273) No. 18430 with a sound chain and as indicated by al-Haythami in 'Majma al-Zawaid' (5/341) No. 8960]

- Khorasan, Yemen etc.
- Mu’awiya was the first king but he implemented shariah
- we now have tyrannical kingship
- the people are rejoicing at the victory of Muslim brotherhood in Egypt
- as if they'll implement the shariah
- the hadith means there'll be light at the end of the tunnel
- but the kuffaar think that with drones they can stop Islam
- and change Allah's Qadr

...“And when is the Hour?” He said, “The one who is questioned does not know more about it than the one who asks.” He asked, “Then what are its Signs?” He said, “That a maid-servant will beget her mistress and that you see barefooted, naked-bodied, helpless shepherds construct tall buildings.”... [Muslim 8, Tirmidhi 2619, Abu Dawud 4695, Nisai 5005, Ibn Majah 63, Ahmed 184]
- every prophecy of the Rasul (SAW) will come to pass

13. IT GIVES YOU BRAVERY
- Umar (RA) said that they prayed in public after he took shahada
- the haqq gave them bravery

Zar bin Habaysh narrated Ibn Mas’ood was trying to break a siwaak branch from an araak tree and he had thin legs and the wind started to buffet him, so the people laughed at him. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “What are you laughing at?” They said, “O Prophet of Allah, because his legs are so thin.” He said, “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, they will weigh more heavily in the Balance than Mount Uhud.” [Musnad Ahmad (1/420) No. 3991]

14. THE TRUTH GIVES YOU MANHOOD
- Osama Ibn Zayd was just 16 years and he was a leader of an army
- Muhammad Al Faatih was just 19 years when he conquered the Roman Empire
- because they had the truth
- but the 19 year olds we have today play PlayStation

15. IT GIVES YOU HONOUR
- Umar (RA) said that Allah gave them honour through Islam
- and anyone who seeks it from anywhere else will be disgraced

Taariq bin Shihab reports that when Umar (RA) was travelling to Shaam, Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah (RA) was accompanying him. When they arrived at a point where they had to wade across, Umar (RA) alighted from his camel, removed his leather socks and threw them over his shoulders. He then took hold of the reins of the camel and waded through.  "O Ameerul Mu'mineen!" Abu Ubaydah (RA) said, "Are you doing that?! Do you also remove your leather socks, throw them over your shoulders, take hold of the reins of the camel and then wade through?! I would not like the people of that city (where we are headed) to see you like this." "O, Abu Ubaydah! Had anyone other than you made such a statement, I would have made him a lesson for the Ummah of Muhammad (SAW). We were once amongst the lowest of people, but Allaah gave us honour because of Islaam. As soon as we start to seek honour in avenues other than that in which Allaah has granted us honour, Allaah will then humiliate us." [Mustadarak al-Hakim (1/130) No. 207]

- Hosni Mubarak, Ben Ali, Gaddafi etc, all sought honour in kuffaar
- so they are now in the dustbin of history
- Bashar Al Assad is also on the way
- his regime will soon be toppled InshaAllah

Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (An-Nisa 4:145)
- there are two qiblahs: the white house and the ka’ba
- the kuffaar choose the white house
- but the mujahideen chose the ka’ba

16. IT GIVES YOU TAQWA
- when you follow a false religion you have no taqwa
- in Taiwan and Mumbai there are 1 million prostitutes
- because they have no taqwa

- Hind was surprised that free women commit zina
- she thought only the slave girls commit zina

- this ayah (33:70) can be explained for a whole dars
- because it’s about taqwa and the haqq
- the truth is easy to find out
- where the kuffaar and the zanaadiqa attack, that is the haqq

And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah - chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism). (Al-Anfal 8:73)

17. THE TRUTH GIVES YOU TAWAKKUL

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: “The Dajjal will come to this pond in Marriqanaat (a valley in Madina). Most of the people who follow the Dajjal will be women till a man has to use rope to tie up his mother, daughter, sister and aunt out of fear that they will leave the home to follow the Dajjal. Then Allah will grant victory to the Muslims over the Dajjal so the Muslims will kill the Dajjal and his party who will be the Jews. The Jews will run behind a tree and a stone to hide from the Muslims and the tree and the stone will call out 'O Muslim a Jew is behind me so come and kill him.’" [Musnad Ahmad (2/67) No. 5353 and Tabarani in ‘al-Mu’jam al-Kabir’ (12/307) No. 13197]

Jews and women will follow the Dajjaal because they don't have tawakkul
- there are potential places where shariah will be established
- but many women won’t make hijra because they want to live in the Dajjaal system

The story of the cave tells us about young men who went to hide in a cave
- to protect their deen from the kufr and shirk in the city
- the dog spoke to them and said he was a believer
- they realised that this was a miracle
- they escaped to protect their tauheed
- and they didn't ask ifs and buts
- rather they put their trust in Allah

Many people will not make hijra but will ask so many ifs and buts
- about healthcare, education
- they checkmate themselves because they should not have asked these questions
- the wife of Lot could not make hijra because she loved darul harb
- like many people today

Related on the authority of Thawban that the Prophet (SAW) said: “If you see the black banners coming from the direction of Khurasan, then go to them, even if you have to crawl, because among them will be Allah’s Caliph the Mahdi. [Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/547) No. 8531 and Musnad Ahmad (5/277) No. 22441]

18. IT DOESN'T CONTRADICT ITSELF

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions. (An-Nisa 4:82)
- because the truth is from Allah

19. IT DOESN'T CONTRADICT SCIENCE OR MATHEMATICS
- those who preach Darwinism are stupid

AYAH 71

يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا


He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (SAW) he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise). (Al-Ahzab 33:71)

This ayah will be fulfilled if you speak the truth


AYAH 72

إِنَّا عَرَضْنَا الْأَمَانَةَ عَلَى السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالْجِبَالِ فَأَبَيْنَ أَنْ يَحْمِلْنَهَا وَأَشْفَقْنَ مِنْهَا وَحَمَلَهَا الْإِنْسَانُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ ظَلُومًا جَهُولًا

Truly, We did offer Al  Amanah (the trust or moral responsibility or honesty and all the duties which Allah has ordained) to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it (i.e. afraid of Allah's Torment). But man bore it. Verily, he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant (of its results). (Al-Ahzab 33:72)

Amaana here means the moral responsibilities
- it also means shariah
- we were entrusted to implement shariah but failed to do so
- and we slander those who fight to bring back the sharia

- if you can't help them don't slander them
- be like the man who lived in a cave (surah buruj)
- he realised he can't change anything, so he abstained altogether
- it’s better than being a wicked scholar and apostate

"A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Quran and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter " [Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume (35/373)]

Anas Ibn Malik (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) has never preached us without saying: "There is no faith for the one who has no amanah (trust) and no religion for the one who does not keep his promises." [Musnad Ahmad (3/135) No. 12406, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/387) No. 18851]

'Abdullah bin `Amr (RA) said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "There are four things, if you attain them, then whatever you miss in this world will not matter: preserving trust, speaking the truth, being of good character and moderation in eating." [Musnad Ahmad (2/177) 6652, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (6/449) No. 4463, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/349) No. 7876]

- so we failed to implement the amaana
- Allah will not give us shariah until we've taqwa
- because we'll cut off the wrong hands and the judges will take bribes

Ibn Mas`ud was asked (by the people of Iraq), What is rashwa (taking bribes)? He replied, "This is suht (unlawful earning)." They said, "No, we meant in ruling." He then said, "This is the very kufr." Then he recited: "...And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun." (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Tafsir al-Tabari (10/321) No. 11960, Tafsir Ibn Kathir (3/119)]


AYAH 73

لِيُعَذِّبَ اللَّهُ الْمُنَافِقِينَ وَالْمُنَافِقَاتِ وَالْمُشْرِكِينَ وَالْمُشْرِكَاتِ وَيَتُوبَ اللَّهُ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا

So that Allah will punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the men and women who are Al Mushrikun (the polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW). And Allah will pardon (accept the repentance of) the true believers of the Islamic Monotheism, men and women. And Allah is Ever Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ahzab 33:73)

Hudhayfah (RA) narrated: Allah’s Messenger (SAW) related to us two ahadith one of which I have seen take place and I await the other to happen. He said to us, “Faith came down deep into the roots of men’s hearts. Then the Qur’an descended, so they learnt from the Qur’an and they learnt from the Sunnah (the right of faith).” After that he told us about withdrawal of trust (faith). He said, “A man will sleep and faith will be withdrawn from his heart leaving its mark like a speckle. He will sleep again and faith will be withdrawn leaving a mark like if a live coal dropped on your foot causing a water blister with nothing in it.” Then, he picked up a pebble and dropped it on his foot. He said, “People will transact business with each other but there would hardly be one who honours his commitment, so that it would be said that among such-and-such tribe there is a man worth trusting, and a man will be praised as wise, very good and firm, though he will not have in his heart even so much faith as a grain of mustard seed.” Indeed I had gone through the times when I bought and sold without hesitation. If a Muslim had to pay me my right then he came there himself to hand it over to me. If right he was a Jew or Christian, their chiefs got for me my rights. But, now-a-days, I do not deal with anyone though so-and-so and so-and-so do make transactions. [al-Bukhari (6497) and Muslim (143)]

When Allah 'tala was speaking about qualities of sincere believers,
- He (SWT) was speaking of their amaana (trust)
- there is no deen for the man without amaana
