And this is the manifestation of this ayah This is number three from

00:02:10--> 00:02:58

Surah number 62. So that is about this gathering here today. Well who Allah Aziz al Hakim, God is almighty and Allah is Most wise that he gave us this timeless tradition, this Quran this way of the life of the prophets, Allah, He said, that is alive till today, leading us till today, guiding us till today that Lika fact Allah hee hee mania SHA, this is the benevolence the blessing of Allah, Allah guides Allah gives to whomsoever He wills Wallah who is involved the law, the name and the blessings of Allah are truly innumerable. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, that the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, when he raised the foundations of the Kaaba, and he performed this

00:02:58--> 00:03:46

really remarkable deed of building the Kaaba raising the walls the foundations of the Kaaba Dimitri Allah, He made dua Robina I see him rasool Allah, O Allah sent a messenger amongst those people yet to new ani him i Attica who can recite upon them your signs in your versus where you are living them on guitar, but well hikma he can teach them the Book and how to live life in accordance with the book.

In Nikka Angela Aziz and Hakeem you Oh ALLAH are fully capable, oh, you Oh Allah can do anything that you wish and you can bring this to fruition and you can bring this to reality. Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran

00:03:46--> 00:04:23

tells us about this remarkable Quran that Allah subhanaw taala has given us, a woman Ghana, Matan for the aina who imagined there's a dead body, a lifeless being. And Allah says then we granted that person life. Would you another who knew Ron? Now not only is this person alive, their eyes are wide open. But if you're standing in a dark room, and your eyes are wide open, you still can't see anything. You can see your own hand in front of your face. But then what happens if your eyes are open and you have light?

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

Then the world is yours. You know where you're going? You see what you're doing?

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

You understand?

00:04:34--> 00:04:40

You know what to do. So Allah subhanaw taala says that this human being

00:04:41--> 00:04:49

could have been a lifeless creature but Allah gave us life. But Allah didn't just give us life. But more importantly, Allah gave us like,

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

we can see the truth. We know the truth. Yong chi Biggie fineness. Now if you have life

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

and you have the light,

00:05:03--> 00:05:10

you have a responsibility, you have a responsibility to share that light with everyone else.

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

If if you are in a room full of people and it just the electricity goes out. Let's say there's a power outage, there's a thunderstorm and the lights go up.

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

And you have a little lamp or you have some kind of flashlight.

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

The right thing to do, the good thing to do is go and sit in the middle of the room and share that light with everyone.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

So Allah says, yum, she behaved fineness.

00:05:38--> 00:05:59

And then that person takes their light and they walk around amongst humanity. They walk around in the world, and they share that light with others. They illuminate the lives of others. The Muslim is a generous person. The Muslim is a gracious person. The Muslim is an enlightened person

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

who thrives

00:06:03--> 00:06:21

who enjoys sharing the light with other people, the most generous person with the prophets, allotting some and that's why the analogy of the processor, Miss Garvey, Salah, it was like a breeze. That blows a cool breeze that is blowing

00:06:22--> 00:06:30

and it touches everything, it touches everyone, everything and everyone is cooled by it. That's the generosity of a believer.

00:06:32--> 00:06:43

cumbersome method who feeds the lumati later because you can never compare that person to someone who is trapped into darkness, unable to come out of their darkness.

00:06:44--> 00:07:04

Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, telling us about this light that we have disliked that we have been granted as believers. Allah subhanaw taala tells us that yeah, you have NASA. Oh humanity, but the jaw Berhanu mirror have become

00:07:05--> 00:07:05


00:07:07--> 00:07:22

defeatable irrefutable proof and evidence has been has come to you from Allah. Once Allah La Kununurra Medina, we have revealed to you this Quran that is an illuminating light.

00:07:23--> 00:07:28

The Quran is constantly emphasizing this theme of light.

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

Because everything changes with that.

00:07:33--> 00:07:44

The ability to know what you're doing the confidence that comes with that. The comfort, the consolation, the warmth, the serenity, the peace, the tranquility.

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

And that is so central to this Islamic ideal.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

Teach Abouna Angela who alayka

00:07:53--> 00:08:21

Allah tells the prophets Allah the sun, we sent down this book to you, he took region NASA Mina Abdullah Mattila node, to remove the people from the layers upon layers upon layers, the different avenues, the different facets of darkness, that people are buried under, that people are being crushed under, to remove them from that, and to bring them into the singular light of Islam.

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

The unifying light of Islam,

00:08:27--> 00:08:35

that it brings all of us together, and it unites all of us and it gives us that sense of confidence that we need.

00:08:36--> 00:08:48

And finally, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, that if we are able to realize this, we are able to understand this, then we will have found

00:08:49--> 00:08:58

that confidence that we need to live life in accordance with that dream, that vision that the prophets Allah the salam presented,

00:08:59--> 00:09:11

where we will be practicing Islam. We will be embodying Iman faith. And we will all be exemplifying and demonstrating to the world

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

what a son looks like, what excellence truly looks like.

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

And this is the conviction.

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

This is the conviction that our religion comes with

00:09:26--> 00:09:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and I'll conclude with this. It's a very fascinating, beautiful interaction. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one time he asked a young companion, his name was Hadith. He said, Give us back to your Hadith.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

How are you doing this morning? Oh, Hadith?

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

And he said a smattering of Manhattan yeah rasool Allah. I am a firm believer. My faith is strong.

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

The Prophet sallallahu sallam said the Polen dilly

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:23

that there is a proof and evidence for every statement. What is the proof and the evidence of your cynically holding? What is the reality of what you say? And he said that I live my life in such a way where I feel like I can hear the people of paradise, laughing and enjoying themselves. I feel like I can hear the people in hellfire crying and screaming.

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

When I feel like I'm standing before my lord,

00:10:28--> 00:10:44

answering to him, talking to him when I pray. I feel like the life of the hereafter is a reality to me. And the prophets Allah need some told him out of the fields him, you have recognized the truth. Now it is your job to hold on to that truth.

00:10:46--> 00:11:05

So we are all striving for that conviction. When you find that conviction. Maybe you felt it in Ramadan. Maybe you felt that hunger or Hajj, maybe you feel it when you open the Quran. Maybe you feel it when you're listening to someone motivate you about Islam. Whatever the case is, when you feel that conviction,

00:11:06--> 00:11:31

then it's your job to hold on to that. To be firm on that and to keep building on that we ask Allah Robina LA to Zuko. lugana by the is her data now? We're having an AMOLED Rama, oh Allah once you have guided us never ever let us go astray ever again. And oh Allah keep increasing us in your mercy.
