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

Regardless Edna Mohammed on early he was gonna be here Jemaine are bad.

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

So today inshallah the verses

00:00:08--> 00:00:14

will stretch from sort of the novel to somewhere in the mid just before the end of swords are uncovered.

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

Thus, we will be entering a

00:00:20--> 00:00:27

new cluster of suitors in the Quran by by finishing certain level today, there's a group of soldiers within

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

this cluster, from Islam to animal

00:00:32--> 00:00:37

talks about carrying the message of Islam and it looks at that concept from a number of different

00:00:39--> 00:00:46

angles that at least told us this is your responsibility. And it's the Quran that you're going to use to actually achieve

00:00:48--> 00:01:23

the goal of carrying the message so it will have gave us the four elements that are required to build the community. Like Maria reminded us of the basic unit which is, which is families with Paul had told us that the purpose of it of carrying the message is to be fulfilled, not to be miserable. Although that may be difficult on the way sort of Columbia gave us our role models, which are the prophets themselves on email salatu salam Menon focused on the fact that as you carry the message, the value is people taking this message to human beings and investing in people to what it has reminded us that carrying this message is a journey and a journey requires flexibility requires

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

perseverance and requires requires striving,

00:01:27--> 00:02:10

similar to the pilgrimage of hedge itself. So the node gave us the idea that carrying this message is what will preserve societies protect them and lighten them as it is without this message will be covered in the dark will be will be lost within darkness as the suit actually literally says. So looking for con surface your aura and certain limit all three of them. They give us the impact of certain things on the message. So to Farrakhan warns us that the impact the impact of bad, bad for having bad friends, peer pressure, the impact of of indifference, the impact of refusing to listen, impact of not reciting the Quran, or not being or not adhering to the book of Allah subhanho wa

00:02:10--> 00:02:46

taala. So the shahada tells us that the narratives are very impactful, whether it's the narrative of the Muslims is that is it whether there's the religious narrative, or is the opposite narrative, both of them have a very, very real impact upon upon the trajectory, but the dean is, certainly tell us the impact of power, the impact of strength, and we're given the story of Saudi man, it has to do minimal peace. And I feel so like bad, like so many, so many things I want to talk about, but we're not getting genuine. But this is the breakdown, that's the cluster of students. The new one that will start with little puzzles is called is that this cluster of clusters,

00:02:48--> 00:03:18

basically, to essentially talk about the relationships of the human experience relationships, each Surah talks about a different type of relationship. So little clusters will talk about the relationship between with people, the stories of people, I suppose called cost of stories, the stories of people, reminding you that every story has more than one way of being told every story, there's more than one way to tell it depending on which perspective you're using. For the story, you may tell if somebody that you see, if you ask them about their story, they'll tell you a completely different story. And that's why this that's why this tool is called castles. And it tells us the

00:03:18--> 00:03:46

relationships between people and how the effects are, how we affect their stories and how they affect ours. So little and caribou talks about the relationships we have with life, with life and all that life brings the package that life has with it, whether it's difficulties or challenges or misfortunes, the end that you're dealt, the relationship you have with life itself. And so that room talks about the relationship we have with the laws that Allah subhanaw taala have put on this planet or put within the universe. So we're talking man talks about the relationship that exists between generations. So what this says that talks about the relationship you have with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:46--> 00:03:54

And that's, and that's the cluster of swords, each Surah talks about a different type of relationships. So that's what we read into probably tonight. And tomorrow.

00:03:55--> 00:04:23

As we move forward, the cluster of sewers will become shorter, and will have more of sewers in them, and you still will have a different take. So it'll take me longer to actually tell you these are the themes of all of them, it'll take too long, so I may just kind of clump them together for you. And if you want to hear more about each sewers theme, and why and what exactly it talks about, just go back to the sort of summaries that I did any over the last four years during Ramadan, you can find them online somewhere and you can listen to them. If you want to find a little bit you want to give you a little bit of a compass when you're reading a sutra to figure out what it's talking about

00:04:23--> 00:04:32

until you can talk contemplate accordingly and reflect upon it with some direction they just go back to the sort of summaries and you'll find them there inshallah Dinah so we'll move on and we'll kind of start with

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

what are you willing to

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

entertain here Okay, so let's do with that. Let's actually do it number

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

one do I want to do here? Do I number 80 for a certain number?

00:04:47--> 00:04:48


00:04:55--> 00:04:59

Will be law him in a shape on your regime?

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:02


00:05:04--> 00:05:12

on the tomb on to be the one to hate or be Hi,

00:05:13--> 00:05:14


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

Tom Timon.

00:05:19--> 00:05:31

I remember hearing this verse for the first time, like clearly, like memorize as a kid, but when I heard it recited, it was in it was in MIPCOM, it was like guys, grade eight, my father used to work in the,

00:05:32--> 00:06:06

the Haram and used to drop me off, I would go right into the, into the Haram and he would go to his work and he would pick me up after a while we did this quite often. And I would go and I had a little little shadow on my hand and I was you know, so I find a little spot to fit myself between the railing and the last piece of carpeting. And that's where I'd pray right in front the Kaaba. So I spent like a couple of years just doing that. I remember hearing this idea very vividly, my shooting was reciting it. And it has never left me, till this day is one of the most impact for me, it's one of the ayat that that affected me the most in the Quran. And I don't know if it's gonna,

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

it's gonna translate over to you or not, but I'm gonna try my best. It's because I really do it, I really do find it heavy. And it's not nothing complicated, really is just a very simple, simple thing.

00:06:16--> 00:06:48

Are you seeing some notes out at the end of the novel, where he reminds us that yes, the whole story is telling us is really important. The impact of power, the impact of power on data on carrying this message is huge, weak, strong, people don't follow the weak, they don't feel strong, doesn't follow the weak ever. So if you're going to actually take the data, well, you have to be strong, you have to be strong in every every aspect of what strength is looking like, which is why we should never teach is that you need to have strength in order for this message to actually reach people. So if you come with weakness, people will reject you. But at the end of the story, it reminds us that but

00:06:48--> 00:07:32

you're actually very weak. Never forget that even when you are strong you are in essence, you're very weak as human beings are just very weak, no matter how strong we are. So with with that, in mind, this end of the story, he says, either Joe, and when they finally come, this is talking about when Allah subhanho wa Taala calls and gathers people for judgments on the day on the Day of Judgment had either parlor. Once they arrive, he asks them or he says, academic Don't be a yachtie? What am two here to be her Ilma a mother come to town balloon? Did you just did you refuse and reject all of my signs? Without having the proper knowledge of them? You didn't spend enough time

00:07:32--> 00:07:48

learning and contemplating reflecting and researching and looking into things before you didn't you just rejected them based on the fact that they didn't suit you somehow, with no real knowledge with no real rationale for why you would do such a thing? Is that what you Amanda Kuntum Tamela this piece here?

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

Or what was it that you were doing?

00:07:53--> 00:08:27

What What were you doing? Are we doing? No, I'm looking at? I'm looking at this book and the mess? How about you tell me tell me what were you doing? What were you up to? explain, explain based on what I'm reading, it doesn't make any sense. I don't I don't understand. There's no pattern here. Your life doesn't really follow any pattern of any sort that can't relate to how about instead of me doing this, you just you just go ahead and you tell me exactly what you were doing. Explain yourself, mother come to tomberlin I want to give you an example. If you were if you gave somebody let's say you have a business and you ask someone to run that business for you, and they're the

00:08:27--> 00:08:38

cashier, they're standing there in front of it. And as you're going through every day, the amount of money you're finding that it's not, it's not adding up there's something missing some money is being taken away again and you're sure after after watching

00:08:40--> 00:09:13

the sales and looking at the profit and everything you are not 100% sure that he is stealing from you. He's taking he's pocketing some of the money because it's not adding up something's missing and that guy's standing in front of it every day. So after a while after actually seeing it with your own eyes, take money and pocket it and not write it down somewhere. You come and you say are you stealing from me? Or what is it that you're doing? Right? Isn't that that's a very common way of actually asking the question. Are you stealing from me? Or what are you doing? So or what are you doing pieces more like I know you're stealing? I am 100% I know what you're doing it but you know

00:09:13--> 00:09:27

what? I want to watch you squirm Go ahead. Try to get out of this. explain explain your way through out of it. Let me go ahead you don't wanna you don't want to come in actually, it just come clean right off the bat please by all means explain to me what you're doing.

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

So I'm less dependent on the cinema to come on the day of judgment and he tells you like I've done big you just you just regarded discarded the

00:09:38--> 00:09:51

the science that I sent you with lack of knowledge. With lack of input you didn't actually spend you didn't invest the time needed to learn properly. So you discarded them and you didn't believe in them properly. You didn't follow what I taught you. Is that what you did

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

or not? How about you just tell me what is it you did? Explain yourself? Murder put them down below you tell me what you did.

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

What are we going to see?

00:10:02--> 00:10:30

How do I explain this? There is no hope. If I'm going to try and explain myself, I have nothing to explain. When I have, what am I going to say? There's nothing to say there's nothing for me to say to Allah subhanaw taala can possibly that could possibly explain what it is that I'm bringing to Him? There's nothing to explain. I fear that question. I hear he looks at me and tells me so this is what a mother can tell me. What were you doing? Really? What are you telling me? What do you spend your time? Like? What were you up to?

00:10:31--> 00:10:37

If you're a father, you come home, and you give your your son a couple of things to do, and you come home and none of them are done? Because what were you doing?

00:10:39--> 00:11:02

Before anything, tell me what you were doing? I want you to tell me exactly here. Let's start from six in the morning, walk me through it. Walk me through your hourly schedule, what did you do? Because nothing has been done, you have achieved none of the actual requests that I asked of you. None of the tasks that I gave you have been completed nothing. And I left you for all this time. Please explain to me I want to know out of interest, I want to know what were you doing?

00:11:03--> 00:11:12

Of course, they score high. And then I this someone called him that I had to and they fell asleep and then I was hungry and then the phone

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

doesn't make a difference to you.

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

You don't care?

00:11:18--> 00:11:22

Only listening to it because you want to give the person a chance to say something.

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

It's already been kind of decided right?

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

Or even decided

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

either, we'll call them Don't be t when I'm to hear Toby. Hi, Elma

00:11:36--> 00:11:39

murder quantum TAMIU. Please tell me what is it that you were doing?

00:11:40--> 00:11:50

I explained very clearly what your purpose was, what you were going to use the methodology we're going to use, what the goal of it was how to do it. I see none of that here.

00:11:51--> 00:12:11

It looks to me like you lived a pretty full life. So please explain to me, what were you up to? How did you spend your time? What were you doing? Because none of the things I asked for actually were accomplished. Because you didn't seem to be interested in anything I told you to do. So please explain yourself to me. I am interested in hearing what is it that you have to say a murderer quantum terminal

00:12:13--> 00:12:23

it's a scary to me continues to be one of the most scariest scary verses in the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. It's very heavy loss apologize to them. Let's do it. Number five, social costs.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

Why nobody do and

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

then the school were informed on the winner Jana

00:12:35--> 00:13:03

Mehta, who Anna gerada, who leafy green turtle fossils it tells us the stories of people it's like I love it tells the stories, relationships from castles to essentially just the relationships with the human experience the relationships with people so to close relationship with life, unquote, relationship with the laws of Allah subhanaw taala and his and his decrees and his rules, the relationship with generate between generations who look man in relationship with Allah, so dissection, there's all these are it's very simple, just relationships,

00:13:04--> 00:13:33

to cause us tells us the stories, and tells us that a story is only is can be seen in different ways. It's not always the same. You see it from one way but the other person is seeing it differently. So be very careful. That's a big part of relationships with people is that we don't, we can't tell your story only you can tell your story. And you don't you can't tell mine because we're different. And we see things differently. And you're looking at it from a different lens than I'm looking at it from which is why it's because it's so interesting, because everyone, the end of it caught on right and it will talk about this in the morning. But it was seen to be something but he

00:13:33--> 00:13:47

was not the same thing he was seen. At the beginning of the sewer, we get this beautiful story of Musa alayhis salam and his mother. Amazing story. Whoa, Musa knows that if they catch this child, they're going to kill this child.

00:13:49--> 00:14:17

At the beginning of that story, he says when we do animal nada Latinas, tombery fulfill and what we want to do is we want to show and bestow our bounty upon those who are being oppressed in the earth. And this is referring to bunu it's about eat the most out of these times tribe and most people, the descendants of God fullbody he's set out when Ajala m we want to make them exemplars and role models and leaders, when Ajala whom will work the theme want to make them the inheritors of this theme.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

You know why I'm telling you this idea.

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

Back in 19, I think 50 something

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

after Oxo after the Philistine was occupied, and for a very long time, Muslims were being removed from the Holy Land and no one was allowed entry for a very long time. It was over a decade that people weren't allowed entry. And finally, one of the known scholars of what's in it in the world is an Egyptian scholar and he was about an initiation, a little humbled, you can still listen to his re citation is there online that anytime he would go and he'd be the first person to actually recite the Quran publican looks after his occupation. And he would sit there and he would say oh bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim.

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, when we do a nomina I want you to listen to this verse now as the Philistine Yean, who are sitting there listening to it as well. And we want to bestow our bounty on Alladhina Stingray fufill upon those who have been oppressed here on earth, when a Giada inmitten and make them leaders again, when I know whom will be seen and make them with the inheritors of righteousness again, look up blindness

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

and Allahu Akbar

00:15:30--> 00:16:03

and this is the intelligence of someone who knows the Quran well, and in the right moment knows what piece of the Quran to taken what to recite and how to affect people. It's just it's just an issue of, of high sensitivity and understanding the book of Allah subhanaw taala Yes, he was speaking to you. Right at that moment. They needed to hear that they knew they needed to hear the words of Allah subhanaw taala that is that has been sent towards those who have been oppressed. I mean, there's that and then you have someone who comes to a wedding and visa Paula Cammarata and or something, right. It's all it's all about. All of it is Quran is all very valuable. But there's but there's

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

Yani some degree of understanding of what's being said.

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

All right, let's do number 10 total costs because I want to tell the story.

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

Well, I'll slow half who

00:16:23--> 00:16:24


00:16:25--> 00:17:13

in car that lead to be the V Lola robber owner, a cul de Kooning meaning. So here's an example as to what the causes of the story of Musa Ali's Romanism mother is a really good one of how you see a story in a certain way, but the reality is very different. And these relationships are important. Oh, most audience that I knew that if her son was to stay in her house, he would be murdered by surrounding his people. And she wasn't going to do a very good job at hiding him he was going to be caught, it was just a matter of time. So she was very worried. So in her dream, she would see, she would be told in her dream to come up with booty, Dr. Devi, William me. Take him put him in a small

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

Jani box or casket, something that will float. And then whenever you're scared, anything is going to be caught. Throw him into the Nile. And let the Nile take him.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23


00:17:24--> 00:17:27

if anyone wants to see oh Musa do this.

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

What would their opinion of Omar Musa be?

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

Called? Yes, right.

00:17:36--> 00:17:49

Make sure they come in the arrestor. Watching Musa do this would make you feel very offended? How dare you? How could you do this? That's your perception of her story. But her perception of her story is very different.

00:17:50--> 00:18:25

Understanding that this is this is where we go wrong. This is where we go wrong to cause us tells us your relationship with people and teaches us how to have relationships with people and what number the first piece, stop judging. Stop, stop, stop acting like somehow you have all of the tools required to judge people and hold them accountable. And somehow you understand exactly what they're going through. Stop that now. Like, immediately. How about right now, if you're doing it still stop it right now. Never do it again. Never look at someone and feel like somehow you you, you figured them out and you understand what they're doing and judge them for mistakes that they're making or a

00:18:25--> 00:18:54

shortcoming or difficulty. Stop doing it. Because you don't you don't know anyone you know, you don't know your sibling, you don't know your children. You don't know your parents, you barely know yourself. You barely know yourself. Wallahi people don't even know themselves properly, to be able to judge someone else. We're very quick to judge people, especially family. We're really quick question my family relationships get ruined so quickly, because we feel like well, they my sibling grew up with me the same household had the same upbringing. They should be they should behave the same way I'm behaving.

00:18:55--> 00:19:12

You know, if they had the same psychological built that you do, did you know that they are you sure that they had the exact same personal experiences that you did? Do they have the same the same personal predispositions that you have? No, then what will how? How do you how you judge them?

00:19:13--> 00:19:49

There, there's not a mirror of your hand. You're carrying a hand. It's not the same. Maybe there's one card similar? Maybe, but maybe not even that maybe your father treated you differently than they treated them. Maybe your mother treated them differently. Maybe they perceive the treatment of your parents differently than you did. You don't know anything. You just don't know. Imagine if we are seeing a woman, take an infant, put him in a small box and throw him into the Nile. You're not allowed to judge her. You're not allowed to judge her because she was the first one else but her for me moves further.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Her consciousness became empty. She was so close. There's so much sorrow. There's so much pain, and she cried

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

No hard for so long that her consciousness was empty. There's nothing left inside of her. She was like she is like she was drained. She was completely she's she was outside of herself. She felt she felt nothing anymore. What else do only moves? What are the most one of the most beautiful descriptions of sorrow that exists in any language? Her? Her consciousness was, there's nothing in there. It's empty. Why? Because she's cried it all away. Because the pain and the agony has melted it all away and there's nothing left inside of her. Because she just threw her son into the Nile. In Cairo that led to BDB he she almost went and announced I did this people go find my son. And if they

00:20:39--> 00:21:04

did, they would have went and found him on Easter Island and killed him. Because that would have happened. Lola l Roberto NIDA, Libya. It wasn't for the fact that Allah subhanaw taala held her heart in place, strengthen her helped her stand her ground because you saw in total, yeah, throw him once you get scared, put him in a casket and put him in the Nautilus say nothing. Say nothing. Do not open your mouth. Stay quiet hold. I know it's hard to hold down.

00:21:05--> 00:21:13

But her became out of her consciousness became empty. She couldn't help it anymore. What do we understand of the heart of a mother?

00:21:14--> 00:21:28

Especially men? What do you know what it's like to have the heart of a mother? We don't we don't. The heart of a father is a beauty. We talked about that with Jacoba nucific. We talked about that with his son. But when it comes to a mother and her son, it's a whole different, it's completely different. There's nothing like it.

00:21:29--> 00:21:57

Her consciousness almost became empty. incur that little bitty bitty Lola robot on Isla Appleby had We not strengthened her heart and allowed her to hold her ground. Lita Kuhn, I mean, meaning so that she may continue to be a believer at the end of that story at the end of the page, but I now have an idea now hold it out on me. He came to Korea, I knew her when she doesn't and then time and then any days would pass and he would come right back to her

00:21:58--> 00:22:21

Musar they sent me brought right to her home by the king, requesting that she breastfeed him for money. She would have held him and tried to take care of him for free and a feared for her life. But she throws him into the Nile. He's picked up by federal own his wife, as he doesn't have a child cannot bear children. She loves him. She wants him for herself. She can't breastfeed him. He refuses to I need to breastfeed from anybody.

00:22:23--> 00:22:27

No matter who they take her, take him to he will not latch and he will not take anything.

00:22:28--> 00:22:40

And the sister his older sister was, was there and he said I can I can take it to someone who's a professional at doing this. It's very good. So they take him back to his mother. Or that no, he loved me. Okay.

00:22:41--> 00:22:57

So she can find that coolers have arrived, what data and we can remove the sadness from our heart. And that's ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Allahu Hollywood I don't really hear what he wants to occur subhanho wa Taala will occur. And he would bring Musa back to his mother, the king who wanted to kill her son

00:22:58--> 00:23:16

is now bringing this child to her paying her money so that she can continue to breastfeed him and take care of him. So most days, Sarah wouldn't be breastfed by his own mother. He will he would not grow up without his mum. Because not only would she breastfeed him he was she would continue to take care of him and babysit him and watch over him. So Musa is set up.

00:23:18--> 00:23:29

Now imagine how how poorly judged it is to judge Mimosa when she threw when she threw her son into the Nile. It not thrown him into denial, he would have come to our house and killed him.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

Just be very very careful before you judge people. Okay.

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

He's not going to look at the sisters at the back it's way too loud. Barack Luffy can keep it down a bit.

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

No change at all. So far.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

I have found no change yet.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

As to if 56 of swords and castles

00:23:50--> 00:23:50


00:23:55--> 00:24:02

in Kerala, demon better wala King no more. De may

00:24:04--> 00:24:43

Wahoo Bill 30 in another part of relationships that we have with people remember this, you cannot force guidance upon whoever you like and whomever you love. Okay, we wish we could, Oh, do we wish we could? That's probably the only thing we really, really wish we could do. Everything in the world. That's the one thing I wish I could do. And we all wish we could just somehow just guarantee are just secure, that we the people that we love, find guidance. That's all we want this idea and he has a backstory to it. It exists in the books of some of the

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

some some some of the tougher seed. There is a there is discussion on his on his authenticity, and its Association and the Association piece but the actual story itself is authentic, the association between the verse and the actual thing that happened and he is debatable, but the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam

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

I'm experienced this as far as we can tell, as far as we can tell, as far as we can tell the Prophet Allah usado some experienced this with His own uncle. All he wanted from a robot it was give him that one word. And the narration is that we have, as far as we can tell, he didn't say it. As far as we can tell, Allahu Allah at the end, you don't know how people's lives actually ended and where they end up going. But the problem it has taught them, as you can tell from the stories is that he pushed, he put a lot of effort into trying to get positive to say the words for him, he would tell him, just give me this one word, I'll fight for you. I'll fight for you. You don't do anything. You

00:25:31--> 00:26:04

just give me the word knife fight for you, I stand on to the object, I won't move until you move with me just say that we're just giving me the word to say that you know, in the law, will you I will not move. I will not nothing will happen until you are taken care of you just say the word is sit there. And let me take care of it. Just say it. He loved him. I bought him took care of him as a child, as a child. And when he stood by him as a man. And he supported him he protected him. He did more for Islam, unfortunately, than most of us will ever do in our lifetime. All he wanted us to realize and I'm just say the word you say you just give it to me. As far as we can tell, he didn't

00:26:04--> 00:26:43

say it and broke his heart said Allah. As I said, it broke his heart. It was very hard. And then this verses was there as a constellation in Nicoletta the man, but you don't. You don't, you can't you can't force guidance on the people you love when I can, Hola Hola, de man. Yasha. But Allah will guide those who want to be guided. Those who wish to be guarded, Allah will guide them, but you can't force it upon people who are allowed to do and he is the most one. He's the knowledgeable one, he knows he's the most knowledgeable or the ones who are going to be guided and those who are going to refuse guidance. It is hard, very, very hard. May Allah subhanaw taala not put you through it.

00:26:43--> 00:26:59

Say I mean, you will not find in your life, someone that you love. Without Iman, it's so hard on you. It's just it's just heartbreaking. It's heart wrenching. Honestly, I remember. And I'll tell the story. Even though it's I shouldn't I shouldn't

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

share personal stuff in these types of settings. But on my mother's side, my grandmother passed away. And as far as we know, she didn't accept this time, at the end of relief. I remember that I experienced a certain type of sadness that I had never experienced before. Like, it was a different nature of sadness. I had seen death before many, many times. And I've lost lots of people who might love in my life and relatives and friends and, and I have grieved for them. And I continue to do so. But that experience was different. It was a different type of pain, I never fully got over it because because because you don't know that they're going in the right direction to begin with.

00:27:34--> 00:28:05

It's one thing when someone passes away, and you're like and Hamdulillah, they were at the end, they were perseverant. And they were close to Allah subhanaw taala I miss them, but inshallah they're in a better place. But when you can't say that, or you're fearful that that's not the case, it hurts, and no one understands that pain. No one's truly unless some unless you've had it, you don't really understand that pain, to feel feel for those who goes through something like that feel because it's hard, it's very hard. It's like this is coming to the profile of yourself. I'm telling him you can't, you can't, you can't force guidance upon those who don't want to be guided. But Allah will

00:28:05--> 00:28:16

grant guidance to those who want to be guided, or those whom he wants to be guided. Either way, both both understandings or interpretation of the verses totally fine. And he is the one who knows best, who's going to be guided and who's not.

00:28:17--> 00:28:54

All we can do is our best. All we can do is educate, enlighten, inspire, train, support a teach. That's what you can do, mentor coach, these are the words you can use, but you can't force guidance upon someone. And you'll you'll harm yourself. You'll you'll you'll harm yourself. If you don't know where your boundaries are, if you don't know where where the line is where you can't you go so far, then you have to understand accept okay, I've tried everything I can I leave it to Allah subhanaw taala. And that's it. Some people don't know when that moment comes. I'm not saying that you give up. I'm not saying that you stop trying. But you have to be you have to understand this is very

00:28:54--> 00:29:26

meaningful. It's very, it's very real in this world. It's a part of our relationship with people. Part of my relationship with everyone around me, I can't force guidance. I just might offer it humbly because the fact that I have guidance has nothing to do with me has everything to do with Allah Subhan I'm just very very fortunate very fortunate to be on fortunate to actually just offer it and hope that in surely you're offering it in a package that is attractive enough for someone to accept it and if not, then you go back and wonder maybe I didn't offer it properly and maybe I should try again. But at the end you can't force guidance upon people. Okay, let's do a number 88 of

00:29:26--> 00:29:26

social causes

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

what to do Ramallah healer and for

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

who Colucci in her econ. What you have the whole hook movie lay he total Jeru at the end of pseudo Kasasa the last little Casals he says subhanho wa Taala and do not call association with Allah subhanho wa Taala another god the EDA Illa who there is

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

Is no one but him Subhana wa Tada there is no supreme power, there is no God worthy of worship but Allah. Then he says Kulu che in her Licon in everything, everything will die, everything will disappear, will diminish,

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

will dissolve.

00:30:19--> 00:31:01

Everything will cease to exist. Haluk is something was and no longer is that's what Hallak is just goes away Kulu shaking, everything Hurley everything is is doomed, is destined to cease to exist in wotja except his face upon what Donna is referring to Allah subhanaw taala obviously as as Allah, and that's how I speak if I want to refer to you, then I can either refer to you as a whole or I can refer to your face and that will symbolize you and that's basically what he means here. Subhana wa Tada. It's not that a part of Hypno jelajah and Allah as in all of Guadalupe in her Licon, Illa wotja, everything will cease to exist, everything will die, except his face supine or whatnot. The

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

only thing that will continue to exist until the end of time.

00:31:05--> 00:31:34

Where there is no end of time is there. If there's no end of time, then you'll never stop existing. So when did he start he never did. You know that concept doesn't exist. Nothing came before him, nothing will come after him. Time is just a fragment of, of our existence that he created Subhana which added to try and fit him into it is just very foolish, foolish thing to try to fit God into something that he made. Good Lucia, in her Lincoln in Virginia, everything will go everything is going

00:31:36--> 00:31:42

to think about it. Think about the fact that in 100 years, not one person sitting here will be here. Think about that for a second.

00:31:44--> 00:31:50

2123 not one person in this room will be alive. Everyone here will be dead.

00:31:51--> 00:32:30

Okay, maybe one or maybe if there's maybe if someone's like, really lucky, and they go 110 or 115. Maybe. But aside from that, in 100 years, it'll be a completely different group of people. No one will know our names. No one will care. No one has time. How long you think people remember you when you die? For how long? How many times? Let's say someone really loves you after you so they remember you for a decade after you die. And then they die too. But the people that come after them aren't gonna remember you. They may remember them but they're gonna forget about you. How many of you know the name of your great great grandfather? or mother or peers? Wherever spent any time making dua for

00:32:30--> 00:33:03

them or spent any time trying didn't learn anything about them? Or affects you at all? Don't feel bad? It's not wrong. You're not a fault. Don't go home. I think you should use good if you did, but you don't have to go I'm sorry figuring out exactly who my ancestors weren't knowing their name. It's a good thing but you're not at fault if you don't it's just the reality of life. It's the reality we're here for a short period of time and then we're forgotten we move on going to Lucia and everything everything heard everything is on its way to die. Everything's on its way to cease to exist. It's just a matter of time. Except his face supposed

00:33:05--> 00:33:21

to do things that's why if given what we say if you have a word healer right, that's what we say we do it for the fate for the face of Allah why? Because that never goes away. Because Allah subhanaw taala does not because if you do something for someone and they die, then it's gone. It's gone. They're not around anymore. No, who's gonna pay you for it?

00:33:22--> 00:33:56

Who's gonna who's gonna fake you for who's gonna praise you for it? No, he's dead. He's gone. So do it for the face of Allah Subhanallah why because couldn't do che in Hurley Cannella just because everything goes but him. So when you invest in him when you give it to him Subhan instead of giving it to give it to him and he'll never die, it will live on forever. It'll live on forever. This is how Muslims understand the world this how the Prophet suddenly set up understood the world, the Hadith and tell me the when he was giving they had brought a sheep and you're slaughtered. It's and he's cutting it into into pieces, putting it in bags and sending it to different people as gifts. So

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

we asked Aisha what's left of it?

00:33:59--> 00:34:33

What do we have a call at mA Buffy I'm in her shape in like a tea for nothing is left of it except his shoulder. So he turns to her audience saw to Islam, but Ibaka yet Kulu her in like a diva. No, all of it is still there except its shoulder, which is what we're going to eat. We're going to eat and then forgive me poop it out and then it's gone. But the rest of it is what we're going to find waiting for us to milk them so that's what's left. This here that we're going to eat is not left for us. This is actually going to be consumed right now and forgotten about and then questioned about your milk piano but the rest of it is going to stay because the rest of it is going to the one who

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

could lose weight and Harlequin Elijah

00:34:37--> 00:34:43

the whole ECMO all rulings are to him what he told you and you all go back to him Subhanallah what

00:34:45--> 00:34:49

let's do is number to have sorted Lanka boots with the two minutes or five minutes we have left.

00:34:51--> 00:34:57

Has he been nurse to a drug law a whole new man our home law you've done

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


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

The beginning of suit Lanka boots, that tells us sort of talks about the relationship between humans and life. Life as in what happens in life, the challenges, the obstacles, the difficulties, the different ups and downs, the hardships, the misfortunes of the part of life, the good times the bad times, all of that goes on. Kabu tells us explain to us our relationship with them. And it starts right off the bat. So it's not good does not do any. There's no introduction to it. It's only Fleur meme, or Hasib, a nurse who did people think this is an area that is very central in the Quran, make sure you know it. Well. Make sure if you don't know the quote, make certain verses, you have to know

00:35:37--> 00:36:06

this one, you have to know this one. You have to carry this one in your heart. Because at a certain moment in your life, you're going to need it. You're going to pull it and say yeah, no, I knew. I knew. I knew this was coming. I knew why. Because he told me to he told me so he said, Has he been nice? And people think and you took that you're never going to be left to their own matters. And you're totally left alone. And you're going to Amman to walk around and say we believe in Allah and we accept Allah we submit to Allah and we're believers and we're Muslim. We're home now you've done and you're not going to be put through trials.

00:36:08--> 00:36:09

Is that what they thought?

00:36:10--> 00:36:16

That people think that they're going to be left alone to go around saying we believe and we believe in work means that we're Muslims, and they're not going to be put to the test?

00:36:17--> 00:36:43

rhetorical question course not all of them for 1013 and we'll probably him indeed indeed. We have put to the test all of those who came before them who said that? Allah Allah men Allah hula Dino Sadako wala Yeah, Allah Mandelker dB. And indeed, Allah will expose those who are truthful and honest with him, but they said, and he will expose those who were not

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

that's what that's what Islam is about.

00:36:49--> 00:36:52

You said law above Alessa 730. So the

00:36:55--> 00:37:31

call Allah Illallah familia Nyjah has little Bella Isabella, prepare yourself for tests, prepare and get along dress get a big, get something thick. Prepare yourself for what's coming. You said law in law, prepare yourself what's coming is going there's gonna be a lot coming. It's not it's not there's no smooth sailing. There's no such thing. What do you say La Ilaha illa Allah or not, there's no smooth sailing. Like whatever you're doing with chi what you want. There's no such thing as smooth sailing. And life life is just a series of events. What are some of that series of difficulties one after the other? One challenge after this how life is it goes from the person who

00:37:31--> 00:38:01

can barely make ends meet to the person who is the richest person on the planet. Everyone is just going through one challenge after the other. But if you did say law in the law, then you're going to be put to the test. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala has to expose the honesty of the claim. You just made the honesty you're walking around saying amen. Has he been Nashua, Utah to your Kulu? Manor, you're gonna be left to say we believe we believe you're gonna walk around saying you believe and that's not being put to the test? Of course it is. Oh, of course it is.

00:38:02--> 00:38:23

Every time you read Fatiha, you say ei cannot go do what a year can Stein it's you and only you whom we serve. And it's you and only you whom we seek aid and support from which is the essence of la ilaha illa Allah by the way, but that's what you're saying every time. And when you say that in Salah and even Muslim points out. Every time you say that your Lord answers you.

00:38:24--> 00:38:29

Every time you say it. And when he asks you when he says has there been any Avena? Abby, This is between me and my servant.

00:38:30--> 00:38:46

And we'll see. We'll see. You claim that you see is me and only me. You claim it's me and only me that you that you actually worship and serve and seek raise your art. We'll see. We'll see. Go ahead live Laban we'll wait we'll come back we'll read the Bible see if that was actually true.

00:38:48--> 00:39:22

Has he been nurse who are you terracotta people actually thought they're gonna be left to walk around and say amen. All night afternoon, and they're gonna find difficulty. You're not going to be tested in their faith and tested within their perseverance and their grit and in their wealth and in their health and their fitness. You're going to be tested. May Allah subhanaw taala make our tests easy. And may Allah subhanaw taala choose tests for us that we can actually succeed in. But there's no way there is no way that you're going to get through this without testing or formula often. So the next time you run through a difficulty just pull the verse, just pull it out, or have it in your

00:39:22--> 00:39:31

habit somewhere in your mind, just pull it back as he would read it to yourself. No, no, no. Impossible. It was never meant to be obviously there's going to be testing and this is what I'm doing right now.

00:39:33--> 00:39:38

A very central idea in the Quran that everyone should take time and contemplate and think about

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

Subhanallah today is the 99th this is the 19th night so not tomorrow night. The night after we'll start to hit you with inshallah Tada. Now you will start at three o'clock maybe a few minutes earlier than three o'clock and we'll run to around 415 so affordable occur in the masjid will be potlucks are also if you want to know

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

You're welcome to bring food just don't bring too much. And if you bring food, take it with you once it's over, don't please don't leave a lot of food here we have, we don't have the facilities to take care of all of it. We don't have got decaf, like we don't have a full 24 hour decaf.

00:40:10--> 00:40:42

If you want to do that, then the lmm is doing it and the Mapquest map centers are doing you can go there you can apply for it, but for us will be open and basically from Asia or from Maghrib to Fajr and maybe an hour or two after photo and then we'll close after that and reopen again also time so we'll continue running the same way but that will start showing up tomorrow night. But then after inshallah so make sure you're preparing yourself for the last 10 nights of Ramadan there's a mentality switch that you need to do. You have to kind of read if you've if you've lost a little bit of your momentum if you're getting a little bit tired. This is the time to be getting it re energize

00:40:42--> 00:40:53

yourself and prepare yourself for the for the last 10 nights where the budget is May Allah Allah grant us little cuddle Lahoma and he's looking like a circular puncture Nyla and to stop people to be like, are some of them hammered in early he also he's made some money.

00:41:01--> 00:41:02
