My bad finance knucklehead et kita ma Will Ferrell Howdy, howdy Mohammed in Salalah while he was seldom verschuren ohmori mo de la wakulla modesetting beija wakulla visa

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

now are you Muslim on arriba de la ou si kumana cb choco la in a favorite set it up wa My dear brothers and sisters in Islam

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

and today's hold

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

inshallah Baraka Watada. We are going to take a journey

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

in the book of Allah subhana wa tada to reflect on a few verses.

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

But before we do so

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

I want to ask you two questions

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

that each of you will answer to itself?

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

Do you really want a law to forgive you? Do you want to smoke better?

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

And the second question is, do you really want

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

the agenda?

00:01:23--> 00:01:31

Now I want you to pay attention to the key word in the question. Because of course, everybody said to himself, yes.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

But as you were to highlight the key word,

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

which is really

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

do you really want the mouthfeel of the forgiveness of Allah and His gender, really.

00:01:47--> 00:02:06

Because now you need to look at your actions. Because actions speak louder than words or your actions. The actions of somebody who is striving to get the mug fit or the forgiveness of a law or your actions, somebody who was striving to get to the agenda.

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

The reality it really

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

is a scary reality for a lot of us.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

Nevertheless,

00:02:16--> 00:02:25

so we can be successful, so we can get them out for the forgiveness of the law and his agenda. inshallah,

00:02:27--> 00:02:33

we're going to mention the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how we can do that. And sort of Allium on chapter three.

00:02:35--> 00:02:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in verse 133, was said to Ilana Verity mirror become virgin netting out to her summer

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

and race,

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

to the mouth for the forgiveness of your Lord.

00:02:55--> 00:03:06

And his gender, there is as best as the heavens in the earth. It has been created for them looked appealing. For those who are pious, and have fear of the law

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

will reflect on this verse.

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

We need to first of all remind ourselves

00:03:14--> 00:03:25

that if we really want the agenda, we have to strive for we have to raise for it as a loss of power. What's Allah commanded us to do in this verse was sad erase for it, strive for it.

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

And we know that the agenda,

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

it's not going to be something easy.

00:03:34--> 00:03:52

It's something you have to work for. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made that very clear to us, when he told us that the agenda has been surrounded by an mcherry by the difficulties, by some things you might dislike.

00:03:54--> 00:04:04

Gender has been surrounded by these things. Well, enough, Michelle watts, and the Hellfire has been surrounded by the lust and the desires.

00:04:05--> 00:04:15

So it's not going to be easy. If you really want the agenda, you have to strive for it. It has to show in your actions and also pilots.

00:04:16--> 00:04:22

All throughout the Quran. He tells us about the description of the agenda. Here, just a very,

00:04:23--> 00:04:38

something very simple about the agenda, but also the plan, the description of the agenda, the description of the Hellfire of the jahannam in order to have our hearts attached to the agenda, and to make us strive forward to make us strive to stay away from the hellfire.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

Then something very, very important that we don't reflect on

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

at the end of the verse, Allah subhana wa tada says to us over a debt limit.

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

It has been created for the McDuffie

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

those who fear of law those who have

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

Aqua.

00:05:01--> 00:05:12

And here we need to sit and ask ourselves another question. Because we will read the product we're supposed to want to reflect on its meanings when they sit and ask ourselves what a law tells us.

00:05:14--> 00:05:20

It's been created for those who fear a law, or we honestly, from the macduffie.

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

Do we deserve Jenna? Once again, we look at our actions.

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

The scholars of Islam said that taqwa and tegile beynac, obeying the law he will

00:05:33--> 00:05:46

so put a barrier between yourself and the punishment of a law. Look at your actions. With your actions, have you put this barrier between yourself in between the punishment of a loss of power or not?

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

If not constantly remind yourself

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

that the gender has been created for them.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

If you're not from them,

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

is the agenda for you?

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

Who are them with the theme? What are some of the characteristics? Allah subhanaw taala continues in the next verse.

00:06:09--> 00:06:09

Allah

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

is rah, rah he, Welker, the Middle Voice in RNs, walawe, who you have seen,

00:06:21--> 00:06:28

and those who give at the time, of ease and the time of difficulty.

00:06:29--> 00:06:36

And those who restrain their anger, and those who forgive the others, and barely a law loves the doors of good

00:06:39--> 00:06:54

the ones who give at the time of ease and difficulty, because it's easy to give at the time of ease, when you have money, don't you? times are rough, and the woman needs money. The most it needs money.

00:06:56--> 00:07:09

Your brothers in Syria, the money wherever it is almost need. It's definitely have that much money. That's when it becomes difficult. That's the true test. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a soda to a board

00:07:10--> 00:07:14

that the soda is boreham it's evidence of your Eman.

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

Allah subhana wa tada told us learn general Berra had

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

a boon

00:07:24--> 00:07:32

that you will never gain the beer, which is all that is good. You will never gain the beer. And so you get from that what you love.

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he told us to fear the not

00:07:40--> 00:07:53

to fear the Hellfire he told us Ali salatu wa sallam for double now what will be shipping tomorrow? And fear that Hellfire even those with a half of a date something that's small, you have to give them what you love.

00:07:55--> 00:08:10

The second characteristic will care the menial leave the one who restrains his anger because as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, Lacey's shadow the surah were in a machete duel, let em know

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

that the one who can wrestle and beat people down he's not the strong one. The strong one is the one who can restrain himself at the time of anger, he can control his anger. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:08:28--> 00:08:31

that the one who restrains his anger

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

solely for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:37--> 00:08:44

Add on up though he has the ability to do something about it, meaning somebody who has powers and has the ability to get revenge

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

but he restrains his anger for a law

00:08:50--> 00:09:07

what's going to happen to him on the Day of Judgment you know the he a law amendments Allah Allah will call him in front of all of the creation you Hi euro Manila Hurry, Masha. Allah him choose from the routine what he wants, when restrains his anger,

00:09:08--> 00:09:20

how many difficulties that we fallen into in our lives because we couldn't control our angles will care the menial wave will have been added ness and those who forgive

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

Abdullayev and rhodiola.

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

He said I heard the profits of the law while he was selling them on the member

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

saying

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

Have mercy Allah have mercy with you forgiving Allah will forgive you. Allah tells us well he asked for when he asked

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

Allah to hurry buena yo para la

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

and forgive and forget.

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

Don't you want to learn to forgive you

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

if we really want to

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

Before the motor team, we have to forgive and forget our brothers. Nobody's perfect. Everybody makes mistakes. But the best of the Muslim is the one who forgives. That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that the one

00:10:18--> 00:10:29

who starts with the salon after they've had a difference of opinion, and they're not giving salons when have they said, Well, hey, you know who man better the salon, and the best of them is the one who starts with the salon.

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

So forgive and forgive you forget what your brothers have done for you.

00:10:36--> 00:10:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he was sitting in imaginisce, sitting in a city with his companions while the Allahu anhu. He said a man from the people of gender will come to the door.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

When he came through is nobody famous. It wasn't. It wasn't.

00:10:52--> 00:11:01

It wasn't one of the famous to have nobody really knew him. When I'm driving, I'm unfollowed him and saw what he did from his actions, didn't see anything special. He asked him.

00:11:02--> 00:11:15

He said, what is it that made you from the people of gender? What did you do that was so special? He said, I don't know that I do anything special except for that I don't sleep at night. Except for there's nothing in my heart against the Muslims, any Muslim?

00:11:17--> 00:11:22

Well, I've been on an NES. And then what does the law say about these who have the characteristics of good?

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

Well, law who you're sinning, if you become from the mercy and even the doers of the law will love you.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

And then when we reflect on the beauty of the Quran,

00:11:35--> 00:11:41

and mercy of our Creator, subpanel horchata. And his kindness, his Look,

00:11:42--> 00:11:47

he's the leaf the Karim Rahim, Subhana, WA Tada. He tells us something.

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

And the next verse, verse 135.

00:11:52--> 00:12:12

Because we set the agenda, it's not going to be easy to get there. So we looked up and we showed a lot show to some of their characteristics. And then he says in the next verse, When levena either loofa he shattered an old bottom one facade, those who do that which is immoral, or oppress themselves by sending

00:12:14--> 00:12:32

the machete. Are you sure? The motorcade he's talking about supernodes Allah, if they do that, which is immoral, because there's no angels when angels from human beings we're not angels, we're gonna fall into sin. The process Adam told us very clearly. khulumani Adam Hopper was

00:12:34--> 00:12:59

born, all of the children of Adam make mistakes, but the best of those who make the mistakes are those who are constantly repenting. So even though most of us are gonna fall into that which is sinful, don't have shortcomings. But the difference between the multifeed and between the others, pay attention to the rest of the verse will lead you in a Filofax II shun old Allah one foster home.

00:13:00--> 00:13:14

What do they do now? They've oppressed themselves. They've done that which is immortal. First step that got old law they remember Allah subhana wa tada because he has the taqwa. He fell into the trap of a thought, but the tough what makes him remember Allah immediately?

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

Step two.

00:13:18--> 00:13:52

First of all, you don't obey Him. What a law. Step two, they make a step far for their sense. After remembering a law, then they make step five for the sense and a law reminds us about the importance of to Hades, the importance of only turning to a loss of panelists Allah in the middle of this verse when he says, will Mejia obey the law who give forgive the sins of the law why returned to anybody else other than a law as some of those who claim to be Muslims do

00:13:54--> 00:14:28

and then the third step while I'm you several ama follow me alone, and they will not persist on doing what they're doing well, they know these are the multibeam when they fall into sin, they remember Allah subhana wa tada and then they raised to make it step up for their sins and then they don't persist. Don't continue to do it. barakallahu li and we will happen for Annie was sooner one of Anna Jacobi Murphy him and it will hikma APU told her that was stopped follow her for Stop, stop.

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:14:39--> 00:14:50

after Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to race towards his mouth for his forgiveness and to raise towards his agenda.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

And he told us some of the characteristics of the motor team who the agenda has been prepared for and what they do.

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

When they fall into shortcomings into sin, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in verse 136

00:15:08--> 00:15:09

Bula encourages

00:15:10--> 00:15:30

Pharaoh to millrock be him, what genette tigit, even takhti Helen how Holly Deena via one near majula, meaning Subhan Allah, and these people, that they are the characteristics that we mentioned, those who are racing, their rewards

00:15:31--> 00:15:43

is the paradise the gardens, from which were beneath rivers flow to be there eternally, and what a great reward for those who strive for those who work for Allah subhana wa tada

00:15:44--> 00:16:03

as we go home today, and we reflect on what we have learned, we need to constantly remind ourselves of the importance of reflecting on the meanings of the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Not just to read it for Baraka and to finish it, we need to reflect on the meanings that has in it.

00:16:05--> 00:16:11

We need to reflect on the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala the cause the reminder

00:16:12--> 00:16:51

of the greatness of the agenda, and that agenda is going to be for those who fear Allah subhana wa Tada, those who strive for him. It's not going to be easy. It's going to be a difficult path. But through the class and through trying and striving Allah subhana wa tada as promised, as promised us.
