Whether it was iVh main, aluminium and Faro now in fairness Bhima alimta was in a maniac at

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

the 10 commandments. Today we're looking at the second commandment Allah subhana wa tada says will be lolly Dini Sana and with your parents you should do good with your parents you should do

00:00:40--> 00:01:17

is to perfect your conduct. exam is the perfect anything and everything you do in life. So when Allah subhana wa tada gives us the commandment to perfect our content conduct with Allah subhanho wa Taala he uses the term son, which has this connotation of goodness and beautification. So not only do we have to do good to them, we also have to beautify that good towards them. Sometimes you can do good things to people but you know the way you do it, it's not that good. So not only do you do the good like let's say for example, you owe somebody some money, you return the money to them, but you do it late, along with the fact that you're doing it late you end up you know, taking some of the

00:01:17--> 00:01:53

money and then you return half of it later on and so on and so forth. All of that because sometimes people are of this nature, they don't want to return back what they've taken. inshallah you're not that way in Sharla anyone you know is not that way. But the point is that that is there within society when we're dealing with our parents. Not only do we do good to them, but we also perfect that good so it comes out beautiful, it comes out with herson it comes out with beauty, that's the way we're supposed to be with our parents. Now notice that Allah subhana wa tada says, it's an accent, you know, the verb in the Arabic language has two different ways for us to use it we can say

00:01:53--> 00:02:33

as an IB she was an attache, we can say as an addition he was an ADA he ended up doing good towards that person. He ended up doing good with that person or with that concept. When Allah subhana wa tada speaks about the parents in the Quran, and in multiple places. Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term be Sena be Allah subhana wa tada says, What bhiwadi daily Asana and with your parents do the good. What's the difference between the two? See, when you see a person on the street, just walking around, you know, you don't know him too well, but the person is poor. And you can see he's got a problem. You can see he needs some help there. You take some money, you hand it over to him, even if

00:02:33--> 00:03:07

you're going through a tough time you've done good, but you've done goodness towards him. That's it after that, your relationship with him is no longer there anymore. You're not going to meet him, you're not going to greet him, you're not going to talk to him ever again. That's it, you guys have you know, unless you see him another spot, likely than not, you will not be able to meet him again to do that good. But with appearance, Allah subhana wa tada says that goodness is not supposed to be occurring once and that's where you stop. You know, when you have a goal. Whenever you have a goal, you get to that goal and you stop right and that's why you use the term Isla del Sol de la isla

00:03:07--> 00:03:45

mccannon Coca Cola, right, he ended up reaching to the spot, a loss of Hannah without SSID or Isla villa. So your end goal is to motorolla that's what you're trying to reach. Right? When you end up doing good to somebody. You do that good. If you allow use of the term ILA or you use the term ILA, it's, you've done it and that's your goal you finished but the type of axon that Allah wants from you towards your parents, for me towards my parents, from our parents, towards their parents and from their parents, towards their parents and from our children towards us and so on and so forth. is a type of good that sort of envelops the individual.

00:03:47--> 00:04:16

Well, being ye they need Asana and with your parents do the good so whenever your parents are there, that goodness has to remain there is no end goal. So long as your parents are available. The goodness remains and even after the parents are there that goodness remains as well. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us a trophy to practice to convey notice Allah subhana wa tada puts the concept of parents second to nothing but a lot of one on one to Allah Himself and He does that in many places in the Quran, Wakata bucola tabula

00:04:17--> 00:04:40

rasa and Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed that you worship no one but Allah subhanho wa Taala himself and that you do goodness to your parents. So next and no one is the rights of the parents except Allah subhanaw taala that's it. That's the only person that after home the rights of rights of the parents come before them is Allah subhana wa tada after Allah is the parents and this also shows us something else.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

And that is that Allah subhana wa tada is trying to tell you that if you are not able to do good to your parents than likely you're not going to be able to do good to Allah subhana wa tada as well. Why is that? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala did create you, Allah subhanho wa Taala did blow

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

The soul into you, Allah subhana wa tada did command for your creation to occur as well. A lot did commend for your, your existence to happen and he created your existence as well. But when you came out, you came out through the means of your parents, you came out to this world through the means of your parents. So if you're not even able to do good to the means, how are you going to do good to the origin? So Allah says, do good to me. Be monotheistic in your interactions with me do not associate partners with me. And then you remember your parents as well because that is that assume that is the means. And that's why when we're taught to dealing with warfare, though, we're far far

00:05:39--> 00:06:15

away from it. What happens when we want to do good to the origin we want when we want to do good to the country that is dealing with us we do good to what the ambassador of that country, Allah subhanho wa Taala made your appearance that means for you to come to the world. If you do good to your parents, then and only then will you be able to do goodness to Allah subhana wa tada and this is captured in the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he says whoever is not thankful and grateful to the people, he will not be thankful and grateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. So your action points over here, our number one goal right now, right after this video finishes and

00:06:15--> 00:06:40

if you've never done in your life, I know it's gonna be difficult, but going kiss your parents on their forehead right now. And if your parents are not with you, at least call them and tell them I love you. Even if those words are difficult, even if it feels like a mountain is about to fall on you. It's not gonna fall nothing's gonna happen you're gonna be perfectly fine but what's gonna happen is your scale of good deeds are gonna go higher and higher. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us a trophy after practice to convey just for listening was a little sad.
