world, but your brothers and sisters in Islam.

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

In today's football, we're going to talk about

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

an issue with such as all of us.

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

An issue that touches all of us in our everyday lives

00:02:16--> 00:02:40

at all times, that perhaps we do not reflect on. Perhaps we're not thankful enough to know what's out there. For all of the near misses the blessings that loss of pana which Allah has given us, a loss upon what's honest said about his Nana's his blessings in the Koran, when to do nematode law he led to sue her. If you will try to count

00:02:41--> 00:02:50

the favors in the blessings of a law you could never count them. There are too many. Look around you. Look in yourself.

00:02:51--> 00:02:59

Hello suparna What's Allah, all throughout the Quran talks about the importance of being thankful

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

and showing us the importance of being thankful for that which he has blessed us with, unless upon what's on the trains the Muslims first of all to know that all of these blessings are from Allah subhana wa Asana will not be coming at him from in a law, any blessing you have that variance from a law

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

to remind you of the importance of having your heart attached to a loss of power, what's

00:03:26--> 00:04:09

the importance of striving to please Allah subhanho wa Taala because of this blessing that He has given you a loss of power on one side or causes the neurons to reflect. He says sapan on what's Island sort of look man, Alan sorrow and aloha, Saqqara comap is somewhat out. Have you not seen that a law he is the one who has given you and made it easy for you everything that's on the face of the earth and in the skies? Was Polycom Namah Namah to who nehama va hirato above him and that he has made or bestowed upon you all of his blessings that which is apparent and that which is Anil parents.

00:04:11--> 00:04:53

All of this as a former to remind us of the greatness of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us in the Quran, that even though he has showed us the right way, and he has blessed us that many people turn away in Medina who sebelah imageshack you know what in Medicare for all, barely we have guided him to the right way. And either he is going to be grateful or ungrateful. And he showed us a panel hautala the way to have these blessings stay to make sure that they always stay with us and that they're not taking away from us is to be thankful, lame shackled to

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

that veil if you are thankful I will increase will encode them in other bisha deeds.

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

Neither will sad. And then if you turn away if you deny my favorites that barely my punishment is severe. And also part of what Allah showed us in the Koran, that even though this is the case, so many people turn away and are not grateful to Allah subhana wa tada walk on the luminary, everybody, les Shaku and a small amount of my creation are the ones who are thankful a small amount are the ones who are grateful. And Allah subhanho wa Taala. He showed us that if we're going to be truly from those who worship Him, surely from those who are grateful for our attempts to partner with Allah,

00:05:40--> 00:05:54

that we must be thankful we must be thankful and that is the one who truly worships Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says to us in the Quran in surah, Baqarah Latina Manu, coolamon Paiva tema, Rosa,

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

wash guru Lila Tamiya with a boon, oh you believe

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

even that which we have provided from you, or be that we've provided for you and be thankful to a law if you are truly worshipping Him. If you're truly worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala then you must be thankful to him for all that He has given you.

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

And also part of what sada

00:06:19--> 00:06:32

talked in the part about how he will give the great reward to those who are thankful once a year just once a year, just check it in and he will be thankful he will and he will grant the reward to those who are thankful.

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

Hello subhana wa tada when he praised Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:06:39--> 00:07:25

and shorty bream status on a Salaam. Pay attention to this verse. Pay attention to the greatest characteristic that he mentioned. Allah subhanho wa Taala says about Ibrahim Ali Salim in Ybor in Ebrahim acana oma that Abraham was an omen he was a nation himself. God Eater Nila hanifa he was devoted to Allah obedient to Allah inclining towards the truth. Well, let me accumulate machinery mushrikeen he was not from those who join partners with a law. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned from his greatest characteristics, the greatest characteristic of everybody Salaam, Shakira, Rumi, that he was thankful for that which he was given from Allah soprano on what's on

00:07:26--> 00:08:12

the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He also taught us this and as soon as he said that was Salaam, the importance of being thankful. He used to say when he would wake up in the morning, and when he was in the evening, la Salatu was Salam Allahumma de minimus in obeah Hutton in Hong Kong, firming Coca Cola sharika Falak Al Hamdulillah sugar in the morning the prophets in the law while he was selling in the morning, evening, he would say all the time, Oh Allah, I have not entered this day or this evening with any blessings for me or for anybody of your creation, except for it solely from you. As one not joining any partners with you. So you to you is the hummed in the sugar, the

00:08:12--> 00:08:38

praise and the thanks. I know what's either teaching the Muslims the importance of tawheed of having your heart attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala the importance of being faithful the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Whoever says this in the morning that he has done his thanks for the day. And whoever it says in the evening he has done his thanks for the evening. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And his actions taught us the importance of being thankful

00:08:40--> 00:08:49

when he was to pray all through the night and he said it was Salaam until his feet will become swollen. And his wife is shuttled the Aloha and as she was surprised, she said,

00:08:50--> 00:08:50

what

00:08:54--> 00:09:08

do you do that? And a lawyer is forgiving you of all of your past and future sins. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say to her, he said I could have done shoo Cora. Should I not be a servant who is thankful to Allah

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

when we look at the types of blessings that Allah subhana wa tada has blessed us with,

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

no matter how rich or poor you are.

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

The greatest of all blessings is the blessing of Islam.

00:09:26--> 00:09:37

The blessing to have been guided to follow the way of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah to be from the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the greatest blessing.

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

If you have that have nothing else and you have been victorious in this life. You have been successful in this life. Pay attention to what a little supine wattana says to us in the Quran, when he says Elio mcmurtrey lacantina was meant to alikum near Mati hora de la cama Islam Medina he said today I have perfect

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

For you, your religion and bestowed upon you my name, my blessing

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

and chose for you the religion of Islam as a religion.

00:10:11--> 00:10:18

The religion of Islam is a near miss a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we need to be thankful for.

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

From the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

the blessings really reflect on be able to see, to understand,

00:10:31--> 00:10:49

to hear to smell, Allah subhana wa Taala he said hula hula De Anza come rajala como Sam our basato either kalila mata Sharon say he is the one who has given you. He has created you and giving you the hearing,

00:10:50--> 00:11:13

and the sight and the hearts to reflect with but little are you thankful none of the people are thankful even though they've been blessed with this. How many people have been blessed with vision but they use it now which is haram and displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala they've been blessed with hearing with the intelligence to reflect and they turn away from Allah subhana wa tada listen and do that which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

From the blessings

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

that we have been blessed with,

00:11:20--> 00:11:39

is having that which is sufficient for us and for our families. From the provisions know how much it is Alhamdulillah the provinces have taught us, he trained us, he said my income, Amina should be more often feature city and the poor to me,

00:11:41--> 00:11:48

a dunya, that whoever wakes up and he is safe. He's living in safety.

00:11:49--> 00:12:02

And he is doesn't have any afflictions in his body. He's healthy, and he has his food, His provision to eat with for that day for him and his family. Then it's like he has the dunya and all that's in it.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

How many billion that's what the be billions of people live in poverty.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

How many people don't have

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

how many people are ill? How many millions who have illnesses will be dead next week.

00:12:24--> 00:12:38

And the last panel that has blessed us with health, he's blessed us to have enough. Of course all of us who want more as the province as Adam said, if you were to give the children Adam, a tally of gold, he'd want another one.

00:12:39--> 00:12:55

That's human nature. But we need to be thankful. We need to reflect what we have. Go on YouTube. And look at some of the videos of the people in the poor countries. As they live on the streets. They take any crumbs that they can find from the streets and then look at your situation.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

Look at the boy

00:12:58--> 00:13:05

who was about to get eaten by the bird is about to die from hunger. And look at your situation.

00:13:06--> 00:13:11

Look at the little boy who was trying to pull his mother because she died of hunger in front of him and look at your situation.

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

We need to be thankful

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

we need to reflect on the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

and being thankful comes in different forms. A lot of times we look at being thankful in

00:13:30--> 00:13:38

with our tongue by singing hamdulillah and even though that's good it's not enough because we also need to be thankful in our hearts.

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

We need to be thankful in our hearts knowing that this Namah this blessing we have is from Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

and that this makes us love Allah subhanho wa Taala more and more that this brings us closer to Allah subhana wa tada

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

we need to be thankful in our actions by only using now the law has blessed us with and that which is pleasing Him so part of what's our our Creator

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

doing that what he told us to do and stay away from that what you've heard but that's from subhanho wa tada

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

barakallahu li will come through and he was sooner. One of ano Jacobi Murphy he never did it will hikma aku loco he had the pasta from LA Hollywood. Stop Pharaoh in

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

Bismillah he woke up lol Salatu was Salam ala nabina Mustafa with that about

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

my dear brothers in Islam

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

as we have learned the reality

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

The importance of being thankful and grateful for the blessings that are also part of what God has bestowed on us.

00:15:06--> 00:15:14

That which is a parent's and that which is not a parents, we need to reflect when we go home today

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

and ask ourselves a few questions.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

Are we really from those

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

who are grateful to Allah Subhana? Wa tada?

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

Are we honestly from those? who love Allah? subhanho? wa Taala?

00:15:34--> 00:15:34

If so,

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

if you say yes.

00:15:39--> 00:15:48

Or you fool yourself by saying yes. The next question comes in my really thankful in my heart. Oh, my tongue is that hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah.

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

But if you think for your heart, the next question, are you thankful in your actions?

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

Because the actions are the reality.

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

The actions show us the truth. If you're really grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look at your actions.

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

Do you do what you're supposed to do? Do you do what a loss upon what Allah commanded you to do? Or do you turn away?

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

Then you have the answer if you're really grateful or not, the money that you gain,

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

do you gain it from halau sources or sources?

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

And if when you gain that money, how do you spend it?

00:16:32--> 00:16:50

To the questions that are going to be asked on your piano? From the five questions the prophets that Allahu Allah he was selling mentioned, that every single server will be asked these five questions before his feet even move on the Day of Judgment. And from these questions where he gained his money, what he spent it in.

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

We need to reflect on this when we go home today.

00:16:57--> 00:17:26

All we really grateful we have, even if we don't have that much and our own opinions, the provinces have trained us to look at those who are beneath us to realize the true blessings and to look at those who have been affected as a sign for us to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala a reminder of the goodness that we have of the blessings we have, so we can be grateful and thankful to Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhana wa Asana, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

verse after verse, He reminds us

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

we don't read the Quran.

00:17:32--> 00:17:43

And if we do, we don't reflect on its meanings. Pay attention at the end of the day is hooked up with these verses. Hello supanova Donna says to us in salt and

00:17:44--> 00:18:00

water of a law who method and Korea 10 candidates Amina 10 Mothma yet you have to hover over them in Colima can. Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us an example of a village that was in peace, harmony, safety.

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

The provisions come to them from all around the world from all places.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

What did they do in return?

00:18:10--> 00:18:14

Did they think Allah subhanaw taala for care for the animal

00:18:15--> 00:18:23

And then he said because what they did what made you but they'll never matter law human body magette for in the law should either call whoever turns away from the blessings of Allah subhana wa tada when it comes to them, then very law severe and punishments. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to reflect on these meanings and ask ourselves look at the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As soon as he wakes up from asleep it suddenly thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala all through the day thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala with his tongue in with his actions. We need to

00:19:33--> 00:19:55
