00:09:38 --> 00:09:49

Allah Subhana Allah he says, this is a sort of buffer of course we're covering it number 187. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that in order to be leaving the shuttle energy,

00:09:50 --> 00:09:53

hella come later. So yeah, Murph, so Elon is

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

equal. On Alabama's one la coma and Tony bass will live on

00:10:00 --> 00:10:19

And Alamo Allahu and Cancun to the afternoon Fusa confab Ira Khumba. And come well Annabelle she ruin our better Womack at avant la hula come worku wash Prabhu had a yen hola como en how you told

00:10:21 --> 00:10:38

us what do you mean? So mostly my Elan lay in what I do by Shiro one, two Maggie funa Faisal messaggi. The the the character who he fell out for Abu Gallica you ever used

00:10:39 --> 00:11:31

it in Zillow home yet to learn Allah subhanho wa Taala he says it will come later. So yeah, it has made permissible for you. It has been made permissible. What does it mean by it has been made for bisimwa hella calm. This is in the passive voice. When hella calm is used, it is made permissible for you mean before it wasn't permissible. So what happened? And how was it? What was it wasn't permissible Allah subhanho wa ala locum it has been made permissible for you, Leila, to see the night of fasting, what is the night of fasting most of us you know in the West we think about the night of something the night comes after the day. So like Thursday night, the day Thursday comes

00:11:31 --> 00:11:37

before but in Islam of course, the night comes first. So you say later so yeah, it is the night actually before

00:11:38 --> 00:11:59

the before the day of the fast itself. So hello come later. So you are referred, referred. In this verse, Allah Subhana. Allah mentions are referred and referred here means to be intimate with your wives meaning to have marital relations are rough that can also mean anything that's also before that. So when was this and how did this?

00:12:00 --> 00:12:08

How did this verse, in which circumstances were they revealed? Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:09 --> 00:12:33

when he prescribed the fasting of Ramadan, Allah Subhana Allah says yeah, you have Adina M and o quotevalet, como Siyam gamma cootie, Valentina Amin, Kabila comme la la contacto, just like it was prescribed upon those before you, so that you may be so that you may in hopes that you may have Dakhla. So ALLAH SubhanA wa totally says karma, just like, well, just like the people with the book.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:43

So even in the characteristics, so at the beginning, fasting was a little bit different there. So certain rules that were just

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

a little bit more difficult for,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:56

for a person to fast. And so how is it a little bit more difficult? Well, if a person were to, you know, as

00:12:58 --> 00:13:44

he said, ganas habit Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the companions of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is that I cannot read your assignment. For habla espanol, I now know Pablo. I used lamb Yakko les letter. He said, Whenever I met a person who was fasting, whenever a star came if Tom after he had a thought, and he slept, he couldn't eat anymore. And what if it was time for if thought, and he had slept, that means that was the end. You couldn't you couldn't eat after you sleep. And so that was the rule at the beginning. And so he was not allowed to eat that whole night. And he would have to wait to the next day. The next day, and that this reminds me I just want to

00:13:44 --> 00:13:46

share with you a story that

00:13:47 --> 00:13:53

Subhanallah just happened. This Ramadan, it was just a few days ago. In fact,

00:13:55 --> 00:14:03

you know, there's there are a couple of brothers in our community that have recently accepted Islam. And of course,

00:14:04 --> 00:14:36

they have never fasted the month of Ramadan before. And so this is their first day first year of fasting Ramadan, the first time fasting, and, you know, someone he just he just accepted Islam like a few months ago. And it doesn't know much about of course of the really detailed rulings about fasting because this is his first time. And so I asked her brother about hunger, how he's doing, right how How's his Ramadan going? And you know, the first time he says it's okay.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:59

And then the next time he came in, he asked me a question about, you know, When can he When can he, when does he have to stop eating? And then I told them, You don't have to stop eating until until five your time. And there was a smile on his face. And, and, and the next day, I think two days

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

Two or three days later, he came to he came back to me. And he said, I just thought I would never be able to pass the month of Ramadan at all. Because the first day when I fasted, what he thought was, he thought that after you ate your if thought that you couldn't eat anymore, that was the only opportunity that you had. And you know what kind of Iftar we have, right? And you know, like, especially you just like, especially in the masjid, or you know, the when you're eating before Maghrib it's just a light, and you know, something very, very light. It's not very heavy, most of the most of us at least, and then we go and pray. And that's all he ate. So that's all he ate. And

00:15:39 --> 00:16:10

then he continued is fast. The next day, he had, you know, he was so tired. And he had such a, a, a massive headache, that he says, You know, I don't know if I can make it for the rest of the month. Like this is really, really tough, really, really tough. And until he actually even take him to me, me ask, when he can stop eating that he was so happy, like he was so happy. And then the next day he came again, I asked him, How was your fasting? How?

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

Imagine eating only a little bit. And then, and then not eating again until the next day. That's tough. And it reminded me, of course, this, this verse also of how the companions were so happy. They were so happy when everyone when this particular verse was revealed, and we didn't we don't realize that, you know, I always read it. And I say that the companions were extremely happy with a fatty Hobi have Farhan shed EDA.

00:16:46 --> 00:17:21

Right now, as he says, when this person was revealed, we were so happy, we were extremely happy. You know, you don't really just read it right? And you don't feel it. But when you see a brother that says I was so happy, I was so happy that I was able to eat until right up until five years, I can tell by your time. And he says Hamdulillah you know, it makes it so much easier. But Hamdulillah that Allah Subhana Allah guide us and may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep the brother strong. Also,

00:17:22 --> 00:17:35

Allah, then he said, when a person used to fast, he wouldn't be able to eat anything else. And then there was a companion. He said, we're in their place. And it's Herma. I'm sorry, there was a companion by the name of place. It was cinema,

00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

from the unsolved and he was fasting.

00:17:41 --> 00:18:04

And he and so when it was time for Iftar, he came home. And he came home to his wife, and he said to her, indicate time and he says, Do you do we? Do you have any food? Do we have anything to break her fast with? And she says, No, but you know, I can let me go out, let me go find some food for us. Like I want you to really think about that, like Subhanallah

00:18:05 --> 00:18:16

the houses of the companions. And some of the companions were so poor, that when it was time for if thought they did not have anything to eat.

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

The wife says

00:18:20 --> 00:18:30

we don't have anything. And imagine he's, he's just came home. He's come home from a hard day's work. You're tired, and he's hungry.

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

So she goes,

00:18:34 --> 00:19:19

she goes to look for food. And then when she comes back, she finds that he's already slept, he fell asleep, he was so tired that he couldn't stay awake. He fell asleep and she said hi better luck, what disappointment for you? What disappointment is waiting for this food. And she was able to find the food. And then she comes home and her husband is sleeping. Imagine how sad she is. You know, because, you know, she knows that he or she can eat the food still, she hasn't fallen asleep yet. But he's already slept that means his time for eating is over. And so the next day, the next day base settlement he

00:19:20 --> 00:19:34

of course he has to go back to work and that shows also Subhanallah like you know, the the Companions didn't have, they were so far they didn't have any food to start with in the house and they and they work the field the whole day sometimes

00:19:35 --> 00:20:00

shows how hard they used to work and and how little that they have and so sometimes you know, whatever you have of the Iftar whatever you have to eat, you know be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala don't complain because like the Companions legged this household did not even have food to break their fast with Subhan Allah we we should be extremely thankful to

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

Allah subhanaw taala for the blessings that He has showered us with so many things,

00:20:05 --> 00:20:24

you know this in our age, and so and so he, he went through course the next day, and he hasn't eaten the whole day, and then he's gone through a whole night without eating. And now he's has to he has to continue fasting the next day without eating. And so he

00:20:25 --> 00:21:11

you know, he, he fainted when he fainted when he was working. And so, it was mentioned. So the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam heard about it, and then Allah subhanaw taala revealed this verse, or Halo combine it to say I'm a rock So Elon is equal, until the end ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, we'll call worship at a at a value and Allah Kumar hypo LBL, Meenal fatale is when he may have been Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed, of course, will call to worship and eat and drink until it is clear to you and hybrid Ambien the, the white strand from the black strand, so until the black streak, and the white streak is clear to you, maybe until Fudger. And so the Companions, they were so so happy

00:21:11 --> 00:21:21

for Fetty how we have our HUD shaded. So because why, because there are two things that were hot on before. If you were to sleep, of course you couldn't, you couldn't do anything.

00:21:22 --> 00:21:24

You couldn't you could not,

00:21:25 --> 00:22:14

you know, be intimate with your wife, you couldn't have marital relations with her. You know, and, of course, you're you couldn't eat after you've fallen asleep. And so this was at the beginning, who you think and reflect upon that, it's, it's a little bit difficult, right? Because because, you know, if you if you fall asleep, a lot of us, you know, we, we take so hard for granted. But this, when the when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah revealed this verse, this was the first time that that actual soul, you know, would was established. And, and the prophets of Allah Allah said, the difference between our fasting and the fasting of the people in the book is the eating of disorder, the eating

00:22:14 --> 00:22:59

of the morning meal right before budget. And so this next time you have so hard, and you're sitting down, and you're seeing that food, or you're able to just drink water, just water imagine, you go to sleep, and you know how tired how sometimes you wake up in the morning, and your throat is just dry, your throat is just dry. And imagine that you couldn't drink anything, you have to go the whole day with that dry throat. But Allah subhanaw taala is so merciful was so gracious ALLAH SubhanA, Allah gave us the support and allow that allowed us to eat until, until five zero. So the next time don't take for granted that that glass of water that you're taking, that you're able to go

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

and drink in the morning.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:08

You know, this is, of course, this was enough. This was known as in,

00:23:10 --> 00:23:51

you know, in a loop to see us as NASA which means an abrogation of a previous ruling. And one of the wisdom is help us to appreciate, to appreciate to appreciate the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. Because when you go from difficulty to ease, then you appreciate you appreciate the ease so much more you appreciate the blessing that Allah Subhana Allah has bestowed upon us. And that's why, you know, one of the things that we have to really, you know, be thankful for and also there's so much blessing, not just in this world itself, there's so much blessing in it because

00:23:52 --> 00:24:39

you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in hola hola Malika to who you saw Lunarlon notice Irene Allah and His angels, they said Salawat upon those who makes it who are mean Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions them to the angels of managing Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioning your name, and you know, people who are looking for Likes on social media or they're looking for followers on social media, those who will get up in the morning, and you know, sometimes like the for us, in our time, we sometimes we understand it, like how amazing this is, during the time that companions, they didn't have social media and then anything like that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:24:39 --> 00:24:59

mentioning like, like, you know, to to the angels. They're like, maybe it's a small group of angels but know, ALLAH SubhanA wa just like us when something goes viral and someone becomes famous and everybody knows him. Imagine those in the heavens. They know you because Allah subhanaw mentioned you because you are amongst those who will

00:25:00 --> 00:25:40

Come early in the morning, to supplicate to Allah subhanho wa taala. And to have some more because in Mala Mala code and the angels also make it stepfather salata from the angels is they're asking Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness. So there is so much blessing, and also in the Sahara and eating and eating that morning meal. And you know, you can go viral on Earth Sharla wake up in the morning, all of you guys go viral, all of us go viral in the heavens, they Sharla to the angels, such an amazing, such an amazing Hadith that the prophets have a lot. So it's such a blessing for those who wake up in the morning have Sahar and such a wonderful, wonderful

00:25:42 --> 00:26:14

blessing that we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the and, and so going from difficulty to ease the one of the wisdom of the NASA, the abrogation of of a ruling before is to help us appreciate some of the things sometimes that we take for granted and normal law and helps us to appreciate many of the things that we take for granted every single day, just just the regular meals and food and drinks. And you know, just being intimate with our wives anytime.

00:26:15 --> 00:27:03

We also take, we take that for granted also. And so, at the beginning, the verse this particular this verse, when ALLAH SubhanA revealed it, the word means Vegeta was not there, meaning Fajr means, you know, this is the streak or the streak the white and the white, and black streak of meaning of the dawn. That wasn't there. The only thing that was there was Whirlpool washer of ohata, Yetta Bahia and Hola, como fireball Abby, abdominal hyper last word, and eat well Kulu, wash, horrible eat and drink. Until it is until it is clear to you that means until you know that until you can distinguish the white streak white streak or hide means a strand also a streak or a strand, or

00:27:03 --> 00:27:41

thread. And so some Companions would take two threads, and other companions, they would take a white thread and a black thread. And some Companions would take the call in call is the is what they put on. You know, you see someone in the Arabian Peninsula or even country Arab countries, you see them wearing those that black thing on their head that's called in recall, that used to be what the what the Bedouins and the people in Arabia used to tie their camels now. Why because you couldn't find plant trees to tie your camels to. So what you do is you put that on the knees when the camel

00:27:42 --> 00:27:51

camel is sitting, then you you insert it to the knees and it cannot come it cannot stand out as a result of it. And so that was

00:27:52 --> 00:28:22

that's some of them, they will take the white a call and black cloud, and they would then be able to, they would try to figure out whether it was it was still permissible to eat or not by looking at it. Because at nighttime, when you're looking at two objects, you don't distinguish the color of these objects. And you don't distinguish until there's a little bit of light. And so especially in the old days when they didn't have any light at all.

00:28:23 --> 00:28:41

And you know, they did not have any lighting or like, no electricity and, and so forth. So if you don't, you know, and in the streets, of course, it's pretty much dark, there's no there aren't any street lights and so forth. And so you would you wouldn't be able to figure it out, you wouldn't know what

00:28:42 --> 00:28:46

you wouldn't be able to figure out and distinguish the colors, unless

00:28:49 --> 00:29:05

unless it became a little bit bright until you had some light. And so when they would not eat until they would be able to distinguish and that's how they interpreted this. This first does that was revealed. And so I didn't know how to him. He said, he said, When this

00:29:06 --> 00:29:52

when this verse was revealed, I went and I took to a call I one white and one black. And I put it under my eye, put it under my pillow and put it on my pillow and every single time I would wake up I would look at these two cards, these two, and I would check to see if I could distinguish between them or not. And if I was able to distinguish between the white and the black, then I would stop eating and if I was if I could not distinguish between the black and the white, then I would continue to eat and I would continue to eat. And so he wakey went to the Prophet sallallahu I somebody told the messenger of allah sallallahu so what he did, you know, he's he's in the messenger

00:29:52 --> 00:29:58

of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In recited in Novi Sad ethical

00:29:59 --> 00:30:00


00:30:00 --> 00:30:34

said Indeed. And then we start the calorie and he says your, your, your your pillow because he tells he says he left he put these two streaks under his pillow He said your pillow must be huge, humongous looks. You can tell this the humor of the Messenger of Allah says a lot. So he says your pillow must be huge. Why? Because if you're able to put the stick to the streak on the horizon, under your pillow, your pillows the size of the horizon, that your pillow must be huge, right? And imagine

00:30:35 --> 00:30:52

it in your head. You shouldn't do it. What are you talking about? I feel it's just a regular size. Like I said, if you're able to put the the horizon under your pillow, that means your pillow must be huge. So because he put the he said he put these two streaks

00:30:53 --> 00:31:38

and under his pillow, and then the Prophet sallallahu. So said no, he said this is the streak of day and the streak of the night. That means when you look at the horizon in the morning, what do you see in the morning? Or when before budget? Usually there's one streak that goes vertically. That's not the streak that is the streak of magic, right? Let's call that failure Academy. The streak that is the beginning of failure is when the streak is a horizontal, you know it goes from when you look on the horizon, it goes horizontal, and it fills the whole horizon, that streak fills the whole horizon. It's not just part of a certain area only. And so that's the beginning. And so that's what

00:31:38 --> 00:32:24

it means. And so many of the companions, it wasn't just idea of no Hatem. A lot of the companions understood the speak to be a thread because the word hype means it's a thread or a string or a strand. And but it means it's the streak of the horizon. And so the prophets of Allah has clarified it to them. And so this verse in which Allah subhanaw taala says Halal loco mela to say Yama refer to Isla Anissa eco is halal for you, it is halal for you a rough, rough, rough as I mentioned in this purse, it means marital relations, but Raafat can also mean anything that leads to marital relations. And so this particular verse, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, It is halal for you to,

00:32:26 --> 00:32:30

to, to have marital relations or to have intimate

00:32:33 --> 00:33:17

relationship with your wife during the nights preceding the past. Okay, so let's say I'm the next person in the past. And then Allah Subhana Allah mentions a beautiful like even, you know the this verse to describe the relationship, beautiful description of the relationship between husband and wife and ALLAH SubhanA wa Adhan says coronelli boss will look on what and don't leave us alone. Only boss will look whom they are your clothing, they are your clothing. And meaning the vast here the vast is there your covering or your garment one to me Barcelona and you also are a garment or a covering or clothing for them and but the wordly bass has,

00:33:18 --> 00:33:41

has so many meanings. That's why it makes us verse this, this verse exceptionally beautiful. And also, this, this particular verse, is a verse that that that is just the description of it is so powerful. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says they are your clothing, or they are your covering.

00:33:43 --> 00:34:01

Why? Because first of all, you need each other not everyone needs companionship, everyone you need your spouse, you need your wife and your wife needs you. So the need the need for each other just like the need for clothing you don't just like you can't it's

00:34:02 --> 00:34:04

just it's just

00:34:05 --> 00:34:49

it's not acceptable, right? It's it's difficult. I mean, it's not even acceptable to go out without clothing or without proper clothing. You have to have you have to have clothing so the need for it right the ALLAH SubhanA wa says Whoa Nelly bussola Kumar, he mentioned that right away, after mentioning, you know what it before it was not permissible for you at nighttime, to sleep with your wives. And now it is permissible for you and why why is it permissible for you? So the reasoning is because they are your Libous they are like your clothing for you like you need clothing, you just can't go out and walk around without clothing. And so the neat part is, you know, that is something

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

that of course, Allah subhanaw taala when he mentioned this, it's known as this, the scholars of the field have mentioned this as a, a Italys. That means it's a

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

Yeah, reasoning for it, the reason for the Hala for the fact that that your marital relations is now halal and at nighttime. And so it's shows that a person's need for food and drinks and also to fulfill their desires is a it's, it's a need that you know, everybody everyone has and that's why it's the Sunnah of the prophets, the prophets and messengers of Allah, in the deen of Allah for us to have spouses and those who have spouses that

00:35:34 --> 00:35:58

is spouses may Allah Subhana Allah bless you and those who do not. May Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala help you find a pious spouse as that you can find comfort in each other also. And so Allah subhana wa Anthony says, holy vassula Kuma intimately vassula I want to marry Barcelona. And this is this shows the need also right the need and at the same time, you know, you

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

also, it's protection and when you wear clothes, you protect the you protect your aura you protect you protect yourselves, from the extremities, the heat in the cold, you find comfort when you wear your clothes. And so the same way with your spouse's your you find comfort with each other, and you protect each other, and you help each other and you find and you know, you find a Sakina, which is comfort and tranquility in each other also. And also as to protect each other from you know, some of the things protect you out, right. And so there, there's no one who's perfect. There's nobody, no one, no one's perfect. And so, your spouse is, you know, they're the ones who know you better than

00:36:40 --> 00:37:07

anyone else, because they're there with you the majority of the time. And so they know your thoughts, they know your secrets also. And so you protect each other also in that matter, in that in that area also. And you know, when you're, when you protect each other also it it's, it's you, you help each other to be obedient to Allah subhanaw taala. And of course, when you were in close,

00:37:09 --> 00:37:53

it's that marriage itself, ALLAH SubhanA describing this, that your wives are a clothing for you. Of course this is this is a description of, of marital relations, but it's but it's also a description of the relationship between husband and wife also. And that's why the need for each other is very, very great. And that's why the prophets of Allah Allah, Allah who has suddenly said, Yeah, I'm not sure to show that oh youngsters, Minister that I mean coming back if and yet as I watch, whoever is able to get married and let him do so for a new era Dasara because it helps you to lower your gaze and protect your chest to protect your chastity and so you protect each other's chastity also. And

00:37:53 --> 00:37:58

so as protection, clothing is also clothing for each other, it's protection for each other also.

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

And of course, it helps you to remain, it helps us to, to fulfill our desires and our needs. Just like you know when we just like what are clothing, clothing, of course we need we need clothing but it also helps us to fulfill our desires.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:23

And when when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:24 --> 00:38:37

gives you this, this blessing. It's this is a wonderful blessing and another verse Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the the marital relations and mentions also the

00:38:38 --> 00:39:24

relationship and and the husband and wife and the reason for the loss of Hiawatha says women at and amongst his sides. The size of Allah and hola hola comin unfussy come as well. Yeah, and Holla Holla comin Of course, that he created from yourselves spouses, Anita schooner, like wives and spouses, Lita, schooner, Elijah, so that you may find comfort in it. The d'escoto second it also means to find comfort that so that's why the word Libras also believer in the Arabic language it means comfort also and that's why some scholars I know when somebody translated as clothing they said no no and actually means comfort also, you know because of clothing gives you comfort and gives you

00:39:24 --> 00:39:59

that tranquility as second place where you can feel comfortable and that's why your house as a Mexican also a place where you feel comfortable, comfortable and so the clothing provides comfort for you. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, amongst his signs amongst the signs is that ALLAH SubhanA created you and gave you wives so that you can find comfort later school Eli had some so we're gonna be in a coma with that our rock man he made between you love and mercy and love and compassion. I love the word rock

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

Math itself is also it's love and compassion. It's not just mercy you don't only think about mercy in the English language, it's like somebody's about to, you know, they're able to like beat you up or they're able to conquer you then have mercy on me Have mercy on me. But it's more than that in the Arabic language it means love and compassion. And that's why the Prophet saw a lot as I'm describe the mercy that I lost my sense down on this earth. When he says just like, you know, the an animal that has compassion on the it's young, it's not about mercy. Only like, there's no, the mother is not thinking about killing the baby. The baby's like, Oh, don't feel me. And then she

00:40:41 --> 00:41:12

says, Okay, I'm gonna have mercy on you know, it's the love and compassion encompasses more than that, not just someone able to conquer you and hurt you and so forth. Now, maybe you might you might be in a vulnerable position. But it's love and compassion and so to have loving compassionate amongst yourself in the valley Keller, I add, you know, there's love and of course, there's compassion and that comes afterwards that you know, Allah subhanaw taala puts in their hearts and that in itself, in the valley killer, I actually pulled me out of

00:41:13 --> 00:42:01

Rouen for people who, who reflect and who think, and ALLAH SubhanA wa Thanasis. And also that was in salt room of course in surah. Allah says, who Allah the Halacha well are the Halacha Communists who are either He is the One who created you, from one being with ya allah minha. And from it, Allah subhanho wa Taala made Dr. Amin has algebra and they made from it. Adam has what his wife how are they? Yes, Guna LA has so that he can find comfort with her and find comfort and peace and tranquility with her. And so the of course with your clothing, that's, you know, what's you know, when you're when you're at home? When you're at home? How would you describe how would you describe

00:42:01 --> 00:42:05

one word to describe pajamas? What's one thing that pajamas have to be?

00:42:07 --> 00:42:10

Thank you doesn't have to look pretty, like

00:42:11 --> 00:42:18

comfortable and warm. Right? Comfy, warm. So say you guys got it.

00:42:19 --> 00:42:24

That's your Yeah, must have to be comfy, comfy, warm. Worn out

00:42:26 --> 00:42:27

nice and

00:42:29 --> 00:43:05

nice and comfortable. Yeah, so everyone agrees right? It's comfortable. You have to have if it's not a comfortable you don't want it you don't wear anything uncomfortable when you want to go to sleep. So the beauty of it so behind Allah that you know you can it's like, your eyes are like, you know, you want your wives like pajamas like you find comfort with right soft, comfortable. All the things that you guys spent in my Sharla May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us our pious spouses and those who are married. May Allah subhanho wa Taala makes your spouses pious and a

00:43:07 --> 00:43:08

pervert lying may

00:43:09 --> 00:43:11

make you make them

00:43:13 --> 00:43:28

that when you when you're with them, you find great comfort and envy and happiness with each other. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said honey vassula como Entamoeba Sullivan. And then Allah Subhana Allah says Allah My Allah and Nicole Quinton

00:43:30 --> 00:43:36

Alim Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that Omnicom quantum

00:43:37 --> 00:43:38

pusa calm circle, but

00:43:39 --> 00:43:41

Allah knows that you used to

00:43:42 --> 00:44:06

full circle means you used to deceive yourself or here Allah says that I know No, I'm full circle. Allah knows that you still are God you all if it's not in the present in the past tense. It's in the present tense that Allah knows that you guys are still trying to deceive yourselves. And then Allah subhana wa Tada they come and then Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave you. For alpha and Comala.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:28

Tab Allah come here inshallah I'll clarify in a bit, but it means that Allah subhanho wa Taala changed the ruling. Allah Subhana. Allah made the NESHAP and ALLAH SubhanA forgave you. So what is the loss of what what were the companions? How are they deceiving themselves? How are they deceiving themselves? Well, they were deceiving themselves in

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

a couple of ways. Of course, they're not supposed you're not supposed to. You're not supposed to sleep with your wife after you fall asleep. Right after you fall asleep or and so sometimes, you know, sometimes a man

00:44:45 --> 00:44:46

would come home.

00:44:47 --> 00:45:00

You know, you might be you might be playing in the masjid or you come home and your wife has already slept. And she just take it she just took a nap. Right? She just took a nap. And so now she feels uncomfortable.

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

also right? So she says, You know, I just took a nap. I don't know if I slept or not. I don't know if I really slept or not. And I don't know if this really sleeping. And then of course, the husband's gonna come home and say, no, no, I know you didn't sleep. It was just a nap, right? It was just an app. Why? Because maybe the husband wants to be intimate with his wife. And then so he's like, no, no, you didn't really sleep, you didn't really sleep. And so Allah Subhana Allah says, He knows that you guys, you guys knew that you you some of you fallen asleep already. But you still, sometimes you still slept with your, your wives or you still ate? And so that's what some of the

00:45:42 --> 00:46:05

scholars have mentioned, because it's not patentable, maybe some maybe some of the companions but the majority of the Companions would not would when they when Allah uses the word that are forced to come back, you're deceiving yourself, what do you mean the deceiving this, then they would not dare. You wouldn't dare like, you know, to go against the rule of Allah subhanho wa taala. Directly, no one is haram.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:28

Maybe it happened. But generally when ALLAH SubhanA wa T is used to deceive yourselves how it's like, you know how some of us, I don't know, for those who have made tea, coffee in the masjid. Especially a mess. And Masjid Al haram, the prophets masjid, or when it's like, time to pray already, right? It's it's like time to play already.

00:46:30 --> 00:46:40

And, you know, you do? Of course, the default is that you do have will do, right, the default is that you do have although, but of course,

00:46:41 --> 00:47:24

if you did make will do before, right, but sometimes, you know, sometimes you try to, you don't want to, you don't want to go make wudu again, because it's difficult, like for those who make hygiene, you know, those who have been hygiene, imagine you going, you know how long it is to go into the masjid. And then if you need to use the bathroom, or if you need to make wudu it's so difficult, then you're like, Did I pass gas and you like, you know, you did, but you tried to deceive yourself? Because you know, it's so far. It's like, No, I don't think I did, like, and so like, Yes, that's true. I mean, you build upon the upon your pain, certainty, like, unless you're certain that you

00:47:24 --> 00:48:05

pass gas. But sometimes you like certain already, but you don't want to be certain. You don't want to be certain because it's gonna take so long to get out of the Masjid. You're gonna miss the prayer. You don't want to leave the group or whatever it is that maybe, or somebody sometimes maybe a brother leading people in prayer, like, oh, yeah, he broke his blue. Like, I don't want I don't want people to laugh at me. Or, you know, sometimes they're thinking that. Yeah, let me just know, it actually didn't come out. Yeah, I didn't hear anything. I didn't, but you didn't hear anything or you didn't smell anything? Yes. But you're certain, you know. So you try to find excuses. And so

00:48:05 --> 00:48:43

that's the type of thing and Allah knows best. Quantum tech, the unknown and full circle, sometimes brothers, or one of the Companions would be sleeping, he would wake up and yeah, that was No, no, that's not the sleep that counts. That's not the sleep that counts. Or he wants it really bad from his wife. He wants to be intimate with his wife or anybody. You know, I can't I know you didn't sleep. Tell me you didn't sleep. Okay, I didn't sleep. Yeah, I guess not. So they just like, and so they would, they would sometimes do, you know, like, happy, intimate even though they had fallen asleep already. And then Allah Subhana Allah says, photogra Alikum. And then Allah Subhana Allah

00:48:43 --> 00:48:59

that Allah forgive you. Or Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah may, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Allah. Allah subhana accepted your Toba, but tabla Tobu here also means and thus, no, NASA is what NASA is and you know, a changing or

00:49:01 --> 00:49:16

an ease that comes from as a result of a change in the ruling that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends the sense down. And, and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned for tab alikhan, meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:49:17 --> 00:49:55

the word Toba means to return, right to return. So it's sort of like it's a double your tool means to come back. So Allah subhanaw taala, when you're when a person says a sellout, or when when a person changes their mind, or we're asking that Allah Allah knows ahead of time, and all of the nasty happens, because of the wisdom that Allah knows best. Like, like I mentioned before, like how much the Companions appreciate it. So who knows how much to appreciate, but we always have so we take that for granted. But when you never had heard before, and now you're able to have support you take for granted you don't take that for granted. You eat and you say

00:49:56 --> 00:49:59

I'm able to eat. And so the NASA itself

00:50:00 --> 00:50:43

Yeah, you know, unless Laila half told I mean Allah Subhana Allah when, when you when you change when there's an abrogation from that which is more difficult to that which is ease more ease more easier. And Allah subhanho wa Taala often described that as Toba because dabba Your job is to return sort of like to make a one ad right so like one ad tab a YouTuber means to return so when you tell them and you return to Allah subhanaw taala. So the ruling here also is turned one ad also. So let's flip back the other way. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, I spoke to and to Kadima, Albania de neige welcomes undercard in Surah mudjacking Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, As

00:50:43 --> 00:51:24

factum, is it difficult for you that to give before you before you approach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to speak to him to give sadaqa ahead of time. So at the beginning, it was difficult it was one of the conditions. If you wanted to speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you were, you had to give sadaqa ahead of time, you had to give sadaqa charity ahead of time. And this, of course, we came difficult, the poor companions I want to speak to the Prophet sallallahu so I'm like, I don't have anything to give charity to I don't have any money to give charity. And so Allah Subhana Allah says ash bow to me and this was actually mandatory before at the beginning, why so

00:51:24 --> 00:52:03

many people were approaching the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you know if you want to, you have to give sadaqa Tama gives you the prophets of Allah, I will be liable to give charity to do a good deed ahead of time before you talk to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam so Allah says, Is it difficult has has Was it difficult for you to give the charity ahead of time before you were able to convert and speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for either an Allah Subhana Allah to Allah then says, Islam, tough Allah, whatever Allah Allah and if you do not do so then Allah subhanho wa Taala and this Allah subhana wa tab Allah Wa alaykum Allah subhanho wa taala, you

00:52:03 --> 00:52:32

don't do so Allah subhana wa has made Toba upon you that means Allah Subhan Allah has changed this so that you appreciate him more. Like he's just to teach you a lesson that you know the prophets of Allah Allah. Yes. But you know, just respect his time also and have some manners with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the, with the Messenger of Allah, with Muhammad, Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching the Companions also the appreciation, the ability to speak to,

00:52:34 --> 00:53:16

you know the prophets a little higher, so and so and so. So it's like, you know, for us also, we have an opportunity to interact with people of knowledge, that's also a wonderful and amazing blessing from ALLAH SubhanA. Allah Allah that Allah Subhana Allah has given to you to be able to have that access. And so Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Subhana Allah meet tilba tilba here and this verse is, is the NUS itself, the NUS a tabula aleikum wa Funcom and Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven you and then Allah Subhana Allah Allah says that Anna Bashi Rohan Weber Telugu market of Allahu Allah calm Well, Anna now, now Vashi, Rohan and now you can be intimate with them right

00:53:16 --> 00:53:42

now you can be intimate with your wives web devil Meketa Allah Allah Allah calm and then seek that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has written for you that means seek the some of the scholars scholars have mentioned that while doing so, of course, you seek to have children pious children. So by being intimate with their wives, you then to seek to have pious children and also to fulfill your needs, to fulfill your needs.

00:53:44 --> 00:53:50

And to keep yourselves in chaste in the state of chastity. And also

00:53:51 --> 00:53:54

it is also of course, it is also

00:53:55 --> 00:53:59

a an act of worship. And when a person has the correct intentions and

00:54:00 --> 00:54:05

the amazing thing for with Islam is sleeping with your spouse doing something that

00:54:06 --> 00:54:41

that you enjoy is is an act of worship. That's why the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam LeFevre, Heidecker come sadaqa and in in marital relations and sleeping with your spouse, there is sadaqa and so the Companions I said yeah Rasul Allah, they said yet also a messenger of Allah. Yet Yeah, how do you know shahada like one of us we fulfill our desires, we're gonna live here and he's gonna have a reward for it, but he fulfills his desires and he gets a reward for it. And double

00:54:42 --> 00:54:59

the goodness of this world and mashallah also you get reward for it also, the goodness in the Hereafter. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it mulawa The haram, a man. What if you were to put it in Haram like we do in Hello

00:55:00 --> 00:55:00


00:55:01 --> 00:55:24

are you gonna like if he was? Are you going to have a sin? And then so the Prophet says radica either Well, hello can Hello agile. And so if he does it right, of course, that's the correct way, then is halal for him, then he will have a reward from Allah subhanaw taala because he didn't have that way. And so Alhamdulillah

00:55:25 --> 00:56:05

I've gotten to live it over. Over my time. There's so much more I think we've only covered half of the verse but I think I've run out of time already. I got past my time, but it's, it's such an amazing verse that you just can't stop. You just keep going. There's so much benefit, there's so much benefit in it. But Allah Subhana Allah says, well, Vashi Telo microtube Allahu Allah Who will call to worship Allah comma faithful abbia luminal phytoliths with email, and then he says, assume that Tim will see I'm a little late, and then continue your fasting until until nighttime. And so this particular verse I just want to before I ended I wanted to end I know there's there's a lot

00:56:05 --> 00:56:48

more to cover, but I want to mention just the end of the first event ended the verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says because Alika you buy in Allahu iOttie healing nurse that I love him yet to home. And thus, we clarify then this Allah subhanho wa Taala clarifies his signs for the people that I love him so that they may have Taqwa. So at the at the beginning the verse of the fat or fasting, the prescribed prescription fasting, when ALLAH SubhanA wa COVID made it obligatory. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lala contact tap on here. They allow him to talk with me so that they may have Taqwa. And even before that, when Allah Subhana Allah speaks about who do know about the sauce, the capital

00:56:48 --> 00:56:58

punishment, Allah Subhan Allah Allah mentions that in order that they may have done well and then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions about Bures Albir which is

00:57:00 --> 00:57:51

righteousness. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Taqwa. So all of these verses are about Taqwa. Then the next verse, though, in which Allah subhanaw taala mentions is also very important, he says, well at that Kulu, Allah combiner can build out and do not consume each other's wealth, in in Haram way, in an ingest li manner. So Allah subhanaw taala immediately speaks about don't eat, the Haram not take from the Haram why it is to remind us that fasting itself when you're fasting it is to help you have Taqwa. It's not it would defeat the purpose if you are trying to avoid the halal which is food and drinks in the daytime. And then you're going to go and take from means and sources that are

00:57:51 --> 00:58:16

haram have hit up Allah fear Allah and have Taqwa have Taqwa don't just you know and so Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, also the prophets of Allah have said about fasting manlam Yada Oh lessor llama la vie Felisa la hija to the app I'm over Sharada whosoever abandons food and drinks, whoever abandons food and drinks

00:58:17 --> 00:59:04

and right and he does not leave us false testimony and acting upon it meaning he verbally being verbally disobedient to Allah Who are being physically disobedient to Allah Subhana Allah does not need you to abandon your your your food and drinks and you're you know, I'm staying away from your wives. No, I love there's no need that from you. It is to help you have Taqwa. So you can avoid food and drinks and now you're going to take haram, money that's haram. That means your sources also haram and Allah reminds right away well Atacado and wallah combiner Cumberbatch do not eat consume each other's wealth in Haram manner. The fasting is supposed to help you to have darkwa so that you

00:59:04 --> 00:59:20

can be better Muslims and be more conscious of Allah subhanaw taala so I know I pass a law passed my time and we ask Allah Subhan Allah to Allah to teach us that will benefit us and benefit from that which has taught us what exactly was Allah Allah Mina Mohamed Salah al he was

00:59:22 --> 00:59:23


00:59:24 --> 00:59:56

It just describes what it's like to listen to you and to to be in an environment where your teachings that does that come left there for that amazing session.

It's so I guess inspirational as a student to kind of get to hear them and to get to hear what what gets them kind of hyped up when it comes to the fear when it comes to reflecting on the end and to take from that what you

01:00:47 --> 01:01:22

01:01:22 --> 01:01:31

chance to reflect further on this verse. I sit on one acre what happens a lot Dr. Muhammad, how are you doing today? Why they call Mr. Lamb and what the law says said Hello, everyone, how are you guys doing?

01:01:32 --> 01:02:05

And hamdulillah speaking for myself and hopefully for everyone else I'm doing well. I'm excited Dr. Pena it's kind of fun for you. I know you were mashallah here for the entire session to kind of see your counterparts and your colleagues, the way that they like you know, I'm sure you come into, especially when you have an idea what you want to talk about for us, right, you have your own gems plan, and then they add on so much richness and so much of their own reflections. It's super, super fun. I can't imagine what it's like to be on your end, but I'm excited for our reflections inshallah. So let's jump in Bismillah technically, I'm a drum rolls because I'm rolling the drums on

01:02:05 --> 01:02:13

you guys. I'm expecting for you guys to give me the gems that Sharla so I'm gonna turn this back on you on the students Bismillah because we're all collaborators, right and this

01:02:15 --> 01:02:58

Okay, so I'm going to be sharing my screen Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salam ala Rasulillah. While no savage Marine, what I really want to focus on and check out the value design Allah, may Allah reward him really alluded to this and set the stage for this activity. He talked about the different yet before and after the verses of fasting that talk about the taqwa the talk about God consciousness. Now, what we are going to experiment right now are going to to have an experiment with for Walsall and I get the ending of every as the separation between every idea and understanding the philosophy of the yet how each day ends is so important into the board. Therefore, the philosophy helps us both

01:02:58 --> 01:03:39

reflect in our minds and in our hearts. Because especially when we read when we read we have to understand the Quran is not something we read as we read a novel you know that the idea of read we always say that read which is the proper recitation of the Quran helps us with the report. Why is that because there's read is the way Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam recited the Quran to the Sahaba and they taught it to their students. And that way it is the way Angel Jibreel recited the Quran to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and we believe is the same way that Allah subhanaw taala himself, let that sink in Allah subhanaw taala delivered the Quran to Shibori to enter Gibreel to

01:03:39 --> 01:04:12

Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem to the rest of the humanity in the same format. So once you understand once that sinks in, you understand that even the format the substance and the style of reciting the Quran is so profound. So with that in mind, let's look at the philosophy the ending of the ayat and the light of projects are delivered it is all love hearing a lot of audience told us and we are going to look for so the activities are as follows. Again, I'm looking forward for your reflections guys more than my reflections.

01:04:13 --> 01:04:14


01:04:15 --> 01:04:16

can you see my screen?

01:04:18 --> 01:05:00

Yes we can. Okay Bismillah so I am I have here I have 187 the IRS just had a very much automatic Allah. I think mashallah he was young he was giving a great deal of tough steel on this area. Let's look at the ending Lala home yet taco. So, of course this mentioned Taqwa. Now I have here other tabs that I opened yet before and after this area, this specific area so this is sort of baccara is number 187. There are multiple verses before that mentioned Taqwa that mentioned God consciousness. What are these yet? What? How can you guys find the four

01:05:00 --> 01:05:21

Me and when you find the Ayat of course you would, you would receive what you're cited for us. And I want you to complete this sentence, the COA and this area is all about blank fill in the blanks Dakwah and this area is all about this and that. So with this being said, let's see, so

01:05:22 --> 01:05:31

Rohit so there's a 183 So can you read it for us? I have 183 smella okay.

01:05:33 --> 01:05:36

So this is one etc can you read it for us?

01:05:39 --> 01:05:40

Or maybe India

01:05:45 --> 01:05:46

said mid camicia

01:05:56 --> 01:05:58

Oh, you can't do it. No worries. No worries. So

01:06:00 --> 01:06:27

that was well below him in a ship on your lodging Bismillah here or manual him? Yeah, I you're Latina Manuel good. diba la como si mahkamah katiba Isla lezing I mean, publico la lecom That Taku perfect. So what is the reference of stucco or in what? In what context Aqua is being mentioned? This is a

01:06:34 --> 01:07:14

Okay, so we have Sarah from Indonesia. The fruit of fasting is to have to be that rich inner quality in which the Quran calls Taqwa beautiful. So taco is the state of the heart. Dhaka is the result of fasting dukkha, again, is in the heart and you know, this people who have this argument, that taco is in the heart, so only Allah knows what's in the heart, so nobody can judge me. Of course, you cannot judge anyone. But you have to understand that taco is an internal state of the heart that trickles and overflows to the actions. I always give the example of a carwash if you have a dirty car from the outside, it's been through the mud, it's been through dirt road, and then you take that

01:07:14 --> 01:07:51

car, wash that car and you walk it, you take it through the car, wash the car. When it's exiting the carwash. It should look different from the way from the state. It entered the carwash. So there should be a visible outcome of Taqwa. Yes, taqwa is in the heart, but it should trickle and show and our actions and our behavior and our manners. Again. So yam passing is bringing us the Aqua. Beautiful. What are other Eyad that gifts that mentioned taqwa and again what we are doing right what we are what we are doing? We are looking at the four walls of the eye that

01:07:53 --> 01:08:04

is that were related to the purification of the heart. Yes, exactly. That what is you can argue is that purification of the heart is 177. How are they fat? Let's go to a 177 Bismillah.

01:08:07 --> 01:08:49

Where's 177? Oh, very well. Okay, so 177. Again, long as Les salga Antoine Lu, would you have comfortable mesh Okay, well Maghreb righteousness is not about turning your face to the right or the left. Remember our discussion earlier about the idea of changing the color. I did not make this up. The ideas are already connected. You know that the gems are already there. You know, we when we when we discussed the idea about turning the cobbler, some Sahaba were confused. What about those who pray to the previous Qibla? Is their Salah accepted or not? And Allah told them Womack and Allah Julio bei Eman accom, Allah was never to waste your Eman, your solid is accepted and it's counted

01:08:49 --> 01:09:06

for you. Now there is telling us that righteousness is not only Allah here in this area, is not saying that Salah is not important because righteousness Salah is important, but it does not stop at Summit it goes to the other

01:09:08 --> 01:09:51

the other aspects of life. So righteousness is about belief in Allah subhana wa Taala the afterlife why as * might be heaping charity and supporting those who are in need, while MUFON will call them a solid our Earth as again notice how Allah stressed again, what a coma solid our earth is, again, he established the prayer and He is giving this occurred and they fulfill their promise we'll move on and be happy that I had to see you this egg is telling us the ideal state of a believer is that that joins both a bad worship and morality dealing with people. Islam does not separate between the two. Let's not have this dilemma of a person who is a good person, but it's not religious, or a

01:09:51 --> 01:10:00

person who is religious, but does not treat others with dignity. Why not having both Subhanallah Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was too

01:10:00 --> 01:10:25

Old about a woman Umbra to suddenly what assumed were to Vijay Rana, a woman who prays and fasts but she used to hurt her neighbors. And the Prophet SAW Selim said he has been now she has gone to the fire Subhanallah because again her fasting and prayer did not help her in purifying the other aspects of the love Mr. Omelette, and please here let me rant a little bit on

01:10:27 --> 01:11:08

sometimes in Ramadan, we see some elements of the Muslim community those who rushed to the they want to be in the first row and the masjid and they want to catch the record and taraweeh and taxpayer to the Haram but they may double park in the masjid. Yes, I'm looking at you and you specifically Please brother, Please sister don't do this. Because Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us in a hadith an adult Muslim in a few total cost to him, whatever Allah Hill Anna to whom he who hurts the believers and their pathways and you know, and their neighborhoods, their curse, he deserves to be cursed by them. Subhanallah so again, this area, taqwa and this is all about integrating both

01:11:08 --> 01:11:16

mannerism and worship and not separating them right so you see all of this is built into diet or fasting roller

01:11:18 --> 01:11:19

coaster roller

01:11:26 --> 01:11:27

raising your hands Mila.

01:11:36 --> 01:11:36


01:11:37 --> 01:11:41

not sure that I'm really concerned. So why are they

01:11:43 --> 01:11:45

doing double welding?

01:11:46 --> 01:11:47

So those are not

01:11:49 --> 01:11:52

a sore point. 49 as 13 also mentions,

01:11:53 --> 01:11:59

Allah God consciousness that you know how we made you in Kabul. I don't have it memorized.

01:12:01 --> 01:12:03

Yeah, but that's the one that

01:12:06 --> 01:12:28

mentions God consciousness Taqwa very much. Not. So it's definitely gone. And there is a connection. We're trying to focus this exercise on certain Bacara and specifically the ayat before and after the idea of fasting. But as I Comala head, it's definitely a great idea to mention about 100 Actually, I have 300 here. Ready, but for something else,

01:12:29 --> 01:13:16

for another connection, so it's coming soon. Does that go lucky? Okay, I'll get back to you on this side. So let's move on. So again, we are talking about Allah subhanaw taala and how it will get into our cell yet and the ending of each Eyup Allah is telling us taco taco taco, and get again, if we are reciting the Quran the way we should recite. We're expected to pause at the end of each area and think and ask ourselves how does this area connect to the egg before the eye after all of this is Subhanallah therefore us now another somebody mentioned a 179 welcome Phil Casa sahaya Tonia, Ali Al Bab Illa Allah Contacta con what an beautiful area talking about retribution, talking about capital

01:13:16 --> 01:14:03

punishment in case this society that yes, a Muslim society might encounter crimes might encounter crossing the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa taala. But if if, if a crime happened if killing if a murder happened, there should be retribution and Allah subhanaw taala is telling us as much as we might hate killing and capital punishment, there is a higher there is life for the society and applying the capital punishment and ALLAH subhanaw taala is telling us that applying this requires Taqwa. So, this is the core basically it comes to the rules and regulations and laws of the society. Then we move on and we have got the valet come with a harder adequate mode. This also mentioned that

01:14:03 --> 01:14:05

number 13 Anyone wants to comment on this?

01:14:08 --> 01:14:09

Or for the ephah

01:14:14 --> 01:14:15

so like what am I doing?

01:14:18 --> 01:14:30

I was about to mention Alba Cora 2121 Oh, beautiful. Actually, this is I have it and it's very far but yeah, there's a beautiful

01:14:32 --> 01:14:34

Yeah, so you're now ready for us.

01:14:36 --> 01:14:59

Okay, 21 hours a night shaytani R rajim Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim. Yeah, I you know, so we'll do the Kuhmo Lizzy. Hola, Coco Wallasey naming gobbly goo Allah Allah Quran that Akun Amen kind word

01:15:00 --> 01:15:06

ship your lat long who has credit you endorse before you so that you make me a tentacle or activists.

01:15:08 --> 01:15:26

Beautiful so the sentence that we are, again, every area has a reflection sentence again we asked a question and we're trying to answer based on the reflection or exercise that we're doing. So taqwa and this is all about what can you answer? Sr. What is the taqwa? In what context? This I mentioned Taqwa?

01:15:31 --> 01:15:32

Don't meet you.

01:15:33 --> 01:16:23

Can you repeat? Yeah, the question was, what is that? What is the context of Taqwa in this area? Why is this am mentioning Dukkha? Remember, we're trying to look for all the areas that mentioned that we're accepting Allah's laws. Yes, we have to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone, so we can meet in the taqwa itself. Beautiful, beautiful watering Allah alone the context of our creation. Remember that this area was mentioned before Cosette add analysis the lamp the story of Adam comes later in a number 33 or 34. So Allah subhanaw taala is preparing us for this. Oh people are gonna be halacha con or Latina means public con la la Contacta con. Another benefit of this idea that the intent the

01:16:23 --> 01:17:12

purpose of worship is to attain Taqwa. So someone can say that we talked about the end versus the means, you know the means are worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala. The best status for a worship of Allah is somebody who has mindful mindfulness of Allah subhanho wa taala. That beautiful type. So So you mentioned 179 There is also 180 Allah subhanaw taala says go to the Alikum is a ha ha DoCoMo in Taraka. hierarchial was easier to deal with anyone up Robina Bill maruf. How can al Motta, in this area, briefly, it's talking about writing wills, basically, if it's if those who inherit the deceased, they want to make sure that they fulfill that will and they don't play around with it. You

01:17:12 --> 01:17:54

know, subhanAllah many people will either be left after the father or after the grandfather passes away. You see families separated normally because of money because of financial issues. And this requires Taqwa. So all of these are different forms of Taqwa. Because we as believers, we should understand that God is not only in the masjid, that was not only when we are reading the Quran, or attending a class actually, taqwa has to be. In our nine to five job we have to practice Taqwa. When we are dealing with transactions we have to practice Taqwa. When we are going through, for example, we are researching a stock and before we know if a stock is halal or haram, this is where Taqwa is

01:17:54 --> 01:18:25

needed. That's what is needed when you are you know, applying for a new job. You try to see if the job is permissible or not, does it cross any boundaries of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala. Again, taqwa is required for all of this type. And then the famous area we mentioned, yeah, Kota Malecon Ciana, colloquialism, publikum La La contact tahune This is also about being mindful of Allah subhanaw taala and that it's being an objective of the fasting. Now here's an interesting question.

01:18:27 --> 01:18:40

What is the difference between 187 and 183? So Allah subhanaw taala in 187 Allah concludes the area Gallica you bite in Allahu Allah Quran are yet to heal in se la la homea taco and so therefore you want to answer

01:18:49 --> 01:18:51

yes, why Ching? I just wanted to read

01:18:53 --> 01:18:59

Okay, do you want to read the ending of this movie? Cuz Alika the end of a 187

01:19:00 --> 01:19:03

Karate Kid. You be in a lot i

01:19:05 --> 01:19:43

t Lynette La la la la mia on desert Hello hate on the boat. Hola. Vida Salafi Allah Wardian Charlotte Dinah babe. So, the first one it is the Allah subhanaw taala told the believers believers Yeah, yo Lavina Ave. So the believers got a valet Coliseum, gamma katiba Latina and public of La La Contacta con he's talking to them. Now Allah subhanaw taala is talking about a nurse for the people for mankind so that they may attain Taqwa. And he comment here any interesting observation that you guys may notice.

01:19:44 --> 01:19:51

Somebody raise their hand and then they lowered their hand. Broader Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Bilal so.

01:19:53 --> 01:19:59

So in 187, Allah subhanaw taala is talking about so that all of mankind become righteous and

01:20:00 --> 01:20:48

And McKean and they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala where as the first thing is what for mainly for the believers. Another interesting observation between the two and iOS eight 183 Allah subhana wa Taala was giving us the prescription to build Taqwa. So first thing is building Taqwa inside us whereas 187 Allah subhanaw taala is telling us how they believe how mankind should should use taqwa. What do you start well for Allah Subhana Allah he says dilkusha dude Allah He for Allah takanobu Ha, Gallica ubian Allahu Allah Yana to healing naskila Allah whom you have to have gone. So in the first area we are building Taqwa. And the second area here in 187. We are practicing Taqwa till Kapha due

01:20:48 --> 01:21:16

to Allah He further takanobu Whenever there is a boundaries, a limit of Allah subhanho wa taala. Whenever there are, there are borders that you are not supposed to cross. This is where Taqwa is needed, how to build taqwa, by fasting, when to you stuck or whenever there are boundaries of Allah. And we remember the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who tells us Allah in eloquently melakukan Hamer Allah in the him Allah He Maha Remo he

01:21:17 --> 01:22:02

salaam Hadith that starts with in the halal Arabian while haram a vegan or they know Hama load on mush W hat la ya la Mahana Kathy Roman a nurse that the halal is clear, and the Haram is clear, but there are some areas in between that many people don't know them. For many taka sugu has again the Hadith mentions Taqwa so many taka Shubho hat cerca de Sabra Ali Dini will be those who seek a means of protection from the gray area from the confusing area from the doubtful banders then they have protected their Deen their their religion, their faith and their dignity. Sometimes you might leave something doubtful, not because it might be necessarily haram just for your dignity Subhanallah I

01:22:02 --> 01:22:06

remember one of my teachers used to tell us that if you're driving and you want to make a U turn

01:22:08 --> 01:22:11

and you happen to try to make a U turn

01:22:12 --> 01:22:29

in a parking lot of a bar for example. So you want to you might as well not make a U turn there that tried to like try to do it somewhere else try to do it at another spot just so that you protect your reputation is making a U turn in the parking lot of a bar haram.

01:22:30 --> 01:22:57

Most likely it's not. But again family taka sugu had suffered a stubborn led Nene who are those who try to protect themselves and stay away from Delta manners. They are protecting their dignity. Woman work on sugar had to work on Fill haram building versus practicing beautiful Jeanette from Allah here. Okay, so again 183 building block 187 By practicing Taqwa as I had mentioned Taqwa

01:22:59 --> 01:23:46

again 189 Yes, Ilona can Angela Hill pull him over fatally Nancy will hedge weiselberger and that will boost the Holy * Well, I can borrow money taco again the other day that mentioned the Aqua. Okay, now let's look at another fossil at another for Rasul Allah yet. Here is a beautiful fallston filled with which is La La calm the word La La calm. So Allah Allah ko means perhaps. Okay. Someone has a question. Let me take the questions at the end because we already started late. Let me just finish this pattern and Salah we can get questions if you guys don't mind. So. So the Egad and Surah Al Baqarah that mentioned fasting they are five eight, from 183 to 187. There are four out of the

01:23:46 --> 01:24:14

five eight that mentioned the word la lagoon. And Lala ko means perhaps right or so that. So what are the four out of the five eight that mentioned law law. So we went through the pattern of the cone and we found a lot of threads were found and found a beautiful thread of Taqwa. And that thread by itself, is it a dashboard is a reflection exercise. We have another thread which is law law calm. So we have 184

01:24:15 --> 01:24:59

We have 186 Okay, let's start from 183 and go move. So we have Leon Lakhan. That the goon we have discussed this a lot Mashallah. Actually we have you Lala from the taco and also perhaps you may attain Taqwa. So if you focus on the Ayat of fasting, again, Allah calm Allah subhanaw taala out of his own mercy, He is giving us the command, and he's giving us the objective of the command. He's giving us the spiritual benefit. That my my favorite example here, imagine you go to the gym, and you have this weightlifting machine. And sometimes it's a machine that works on your biceps. Sometimes it works on your triceps. Sometimes it's good for the back. Sometimes it's good for the

01:24:59 --> 01:25:00

leg muscle.

01:25:00 --> 01:25:45

And each one of those you'll see a human body with a highlighting what muscles is this machine trying to build for you? Allah Subhan taps upon our dialer well Allah Hill methanol Allah and to Allah is the highest example. Allah is giving us in most of the talk about command from Allah. He tells us the wisdom the spiritual wisdom here is telling us that the Quran so that you may attain Taqwa. I believe you understand this idea very well. We have heard it multiple times. Let's move on. What is the other 184 184 does not is the only one there's that there's not mentioned like home here, but the rest of the three dimensions. So what are the other
