Random diversity turned it on

spit out of marble he would come to me and alarm or something

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

early he was like ah Mengelberg

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

connected to anything and

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

nothing was working

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

we're gonna learn a lot. I mean a lot of somebody who suddenly forgot to call me you know or have you been hammered right early he was like it

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

was the 25/25 night of Ramadan. We are very closely very quickly coming to the end of this beautiful person month and it was hard to accept all the games and fasting in European all either your primary source of content

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

this is our first attempt to do a

00:01:06 --> 00:01:20

I have to say that it's probably maybe the last year you can do it. The fact that I'm alone continue to move 10 days backwards for an exit many many years or more. By the time we can do doors again I'll be either dead or very old.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:22

We can enjoy

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

the nice weather permits.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:33

So nice experience, I encourage everyone who's not too cold or has a jacket or has a fair amount to come up so I

00:01:34 --> 00:01:42

participate with us otherwise, you're welcome to trade inside the home I will leave the front area empty

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

and display the

00:01:45 --> 00:01:57

behind men and obviously the front and the back if you're not gonna be able to sign so even the upper part of the message MD for the least Orisha after the shaft if you go up front this is

00:01:58 --> 00:02:03

ultimately out there but otherwise I think General topside are paying the the hardest part

00:02:08 --> 00:02:11

so we have five minutes I'm trying to go we don't have the slides

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

so I'll give you the one

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

yew the name Robert number of the

00:02:32 --> 00:02:32


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


00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

switch can't be doing

00:02:53 --> 00:02:58

so we've been read from the beginning of slow. So a lot of a lot of until almost the end of

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


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

What are the clusters here? From Mohammed to

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

the shortest clusters

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

and it talks about the prophets of Allah.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:26

Meaning it talks about his rights. It talks about his sacrifices. It talks about our relationship with Him. It talks about his the fact that he's a role model for us.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:32

And it talks about the the manners or ethics that he left us with on a historical some of these words these these words do.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:42

So it's a very, very beautiful cluster of sorrows, just due to the fact that it speaks over his character speaks of His sacrifice and speaks of his teachings. So Allah, how do you how do you stop yourself?

00:03:43 --> 00:04:17

And it's very meaningful in that in that sense. The cluster after that starts with cough and ends with headache, if you won't make it to today, these two of us they are this. This is the cluster that I've been doing just zero on Sunday nights for the last maybe year. So we have not, we haven't finished them yet. We still have SUID Edita to make it you haven't made it. So we're going to do it till after Ramadan, we'll finish that cluster. But this cluster talks about comparisons, it just offers you choices. Easter offers you a choice between two things. So it's obviously the choice between the path of righteousness versus the path of falsehood, the path of gender versus the path

00:04:17 --> 00:04:54

of no sort of that yet offers you a choice between purposefulness versus living aimlessly so the poll gives you a choice between accepting or living with guidance versus living with with no guidance, nothing gives you a choice between living based on based on authentic knowledge and certainty versus based on whims and desires and open assumptions and sort of color ramen they always talk about blessings or blisters or bounties of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada it gives you the choice Either you are straightforward or it's taken away. Or you are thankful you're patient. And then as soon as you walk I give you the choice what type of person do you want to be mocha Robbie was heavily in New

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

York Harbor CheMin there's 100 users the last comparison which is what is it going to be spirit

00:05:00 --> 00:05:30

duality materialism but to have had a special because it doesn't tell you to choose between one of them, it tells you that you have to have a nice balance of both. So that's what this cluster talks about. But we will make it till the end, we'll just start with the measurement stuff. So measurement, that's what the costume we were talking about, but definitely suited to handbags and shoes. In fact, as we come to the word, or as soon as they talk about the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, there is no my favorite Susan Sarandon. And the verses in them are very well known and very well memorized by most just do the fact that it's very, very moving and meaningful. So I'm gonna go

00:05:32 --> 00:05:33

so I'm gonna go through some of these yet.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:40

So you can just recite them for me without the microphone, that's fine. So let's start with sort of sort on a CNN Tina

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

Moore who was really big.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

On what we

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

know who

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

the actual phrase of Latvia in the lung notes

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

are in the actual wording that you now have in the one the only choice was a super soft fat and non gun without the

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

longest time stick with you.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:17


00:06:19 --> 00:06:49

then again, in the middle of Suez, Muhammad, Jesus, and no hula, either you don't want no. And then you have the knowledge of law. In the law. The law is an issue of now it's something that you learn, you need to learn the meaning, and the implications, the consequences and of what the law actually is. It's not just a word that we say it's not something that we inherit, it's something that we learned there is knowledge, there's authentic knowledge that is connected and related to the concept of learning.

00:06:50 --> 00:07:27

It is based on knowledge it is it is rooted in knowledge that is not rooted in ignorance, it never has been. And those who actually embraced it in the world through ignorance end up harming harming themselves and harming those who embraced the concept as well. So it's very important to understand the law. The law is an issue of knowledge. Because when he left us that Allah is sitting, he taught us the importance of it, the significance, the meaning, whether that's going to translate in terms of our life choices and decisions. farlam and no hula either in the law was still getting even bigger when he moved meaning in our minute and then seek forgiveness for your sin. And for the sins

00:07:27 --> 00:07:34

of the believers, both male and female, will love yattalunga muda caliber, who on earth welcome indeed, Allah subhanaw taala knows

00:07:35 --> 00:08:02

the ups and downs that you have in your lives and then your final destination. And we've been working on which side you ended up sleeping, that nice, upper limit, when they you'll be here one night, you'll see here. So it's it's a symbol, it's a metaphor, to talk about how life treats us one day we're up and one day we're down one day, things are going well. And one day it isn't. And Allah knows that with a condom. And he knows that our method was to partner with that. I mean, we're our final destination is going to be

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

Solomon no hula,

00:08:05 --> 00:08:32

one of the most important and influential verses of the Quran, because it doesn't say say it, because Allah is the one that would have been, you know, getting up, but he didn't say that it's parliament, this is an issue of knowledge you need to learn it that you know, in the law is something that requires you to learn, you have to you have to spend time seeking knowledge that led you to the law means something it has to you have to have the right meaning for it, I got to have the right connection to it. It was just something that we said

00:08:33 --> 00:08:49

we would have been much simpler, but it's not it requires knowledge you need people who have that knowledge, that secret knowledge to share with you, what led you to have in the law actually mean so that you can embrace it the way it needs to be embraced. And then you can practice it the way it needs to be practiced. And that was it let's do

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

it 36 And three seven

00:08:54 --> 00:08:55

I can't help but do these verses.

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

In normal hire to do me

00:09:14 --> 00:09:16

normal hire to do

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

what is meaning what a job

00:09:22 --> 00:09:23

is a more or less

00:09:25 --> 00:09:26


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


00:09:30 --> 00:09:35

to avoid equal. So, he says I know what data at the end of in demand hire to duniya even

00:09:37 --> 00:09:41

to me know what a double you have to do autumn What are you

00:09:42 --> 00:09:43


00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

for your equal then the whole region.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

This is a very important item. And I talked about something similar to it. Before clear, is stated clearly more clearly here. That exclusively life the lower life

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

In the higher life duniya you can live a life that has real meaning to it or you can live a higher dunya that is that has very little that have no meaning to it. And that is the life that even trade off

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

is supposed to play and distractions

00:10:17 --> 00:10:18

ready to do something

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

okay, this should be enough

00:10:25 --> 00:10:41

in a minute, but that if you are to believe, and if you are to show some degree of piety and connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala you can do Rocco, he will give you your due reward whenever you're selling, um, while ago, he won't ask you for all of your wealth.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:44

What I sell come

00:10:45 --> 00:11:00

in, yes. And if he were to ask you for all of your wealth, for your free coffee, we'll leave you with nothing, that you wouldn't do it, you'd be too stingy, you wouldn't be able to do it, or your college or abroad or company he was released and expose all of the diseases of the heart that you have hidden inside.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:34

If you remember what he taught us with the software, he said that Allah subhanaw taala never commanded us to do something that was not within our best interest. That's just the fact of the matter of us power, through his wisdom only told us to do that which is helpful for us with the spirit guides from Mercy Genesis. In this suit at the end of Zuma and his verse at the end, he says the same thing. He says, if you just follow what I taught you, if you believe and use your piety, then you will get your due diligence on the Day of Judgment in terms of your warn anyone Subhanallah without asking for something that you can't do, even ask you for all of your money when I help him

00:11:35 --> 00:12:08

in his life, he tells you you have to spend all your all of your wealth, you send me the love, you have to do it. But the thing is, you won't do it. And that will expose all of the diseases of the heart that exists on the inside and blind meanings all the hidden all the little hidden bigotries and hatreds and stinginess and, and lack of of generosity and lack of piety, all this stuff that are hidden on the inside that Allah's power tends not to expose, for most people in their lives, it's like you have enough sustenance, that inshallah all of that is going to go under the radar, it's not healthy. It shouldn't be there, but it's there and it just goes unexposed for the for the majority

00:12:08 --> 00:12:17

of us. But he's saying, I could have asked you for all of your wealth. I could have asked you for all I'm article. And had I done that you wouldn't have given it in

00:12:19 --> 00:12:29

your put you in a state where you can't do it, you have become you just you can't do it. It's too hard, you leave with nothing. You'll just hold your hold on, you'll say no, I'm not doing it. And that you'll be held accountable.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

Just because

00:12:33 --> 00:13:04

a command doesn't make sense to you doesn't mean that it's not a command. It's because I wasn't part I told you do something that you don't necessarily agree with doesn't mean that he didn't tell you to do it. You're still accountable for doing it, you're still going to be asked about it your monthly but others mercy and this are the teachings of the Prophet Isaiah Psalms, talks about his teachings did not include asking you to do anything that was going to put you in a situation where you couldn't do it, where it would expose all of your diseases of the heart. He didn't he didn't do that sort of law, as I've said, and that's not what I thought. And that's, I think is worthy of

00:13:04 --> 00:13:05


00:13:06 --> 00:13:10

Let's do a higher number 2929

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

We just need to first you just just first the first

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

Mohammed Nigel wants to know when the Dean Mr. Who

00:13:28 --> 00:14:05

is alone versus the last day of school because that's probably one of the prettiest verses in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala the truth but as is filled with, with gems, I'm just going to don't have enough time to go through almost any of them. I'll point out this last one which is Mohammed was Sudama. Muhammad is the prophet of Allah. So Allah Allah is I'm assuming when Lavina I should prefer the Warhammer but you know, not only is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is teaching sacred not only is his legacy sacred, not only is his sacrifice his sacrifices of Allah Harleys I will send them sacred, but all those also those who stood by him it is salatu salam as well. The

00:14:05 --> 00:14:36

people who stood by him and lived with him out of your solitude, seven were educated by him and he died out of your sight there was a state of satisfaction with them. There are also sacred individuals that the Quran points out and talks about insert in fact, he also says, God Allah, meaning is new value only that's after shedule Allah. So Allah Murphy, who will be in Betanzos Sakina to Ali and why forbidden by town buddy but he talks about his satisfaction with those who who gave their word to the Prophet Allah you saw those are under that tree and the date for Davia when Earth burned, when they sent it off man was killed and the pledge that they would fight with him it

00:14:36 --> 00:15:00

was until death even though they were not they had gone for ombre they were they had left Mecca, Medina with the intention of Romana war. So Allah subhanaw taala points out that he was satisfied with them. And then at the end of zoning for hamady Again and again he repeats it when Latina who those who stand by those who are with him, I should say that while Kufa Rahama or VEDA on they're very strong, they stand strong against their enemies.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:13

They're very merciful amongst themselves don't all hook guy in the suit agenda yeah but the only problem you know why he wouldn't want to you see them in a state of bowing and frustration as they asked their Lord for for his satisfaction and his pleasure.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

Sima whom fee would you hear him and

00:15:17 --> 00:15:28

you see the light in their face from the long hours they spend in frustration for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. This is something that is underrated sometimes is Sema, the concept of Seema?

00:15:30 --> 00:15:50

Subhan Allah, some things just show in the face. Some things just show in a person's face, you look at someone's face, and you can tell if this person how is this person spending their time? How, what is this person about? There's things that show with people's faces, what are they saying you and you looked at any of the Sahaba you can see it in their faces. There was there was an obvious

00:15:51 --> 00:16:19

sign of of their closeness to Allah Subhanallah the law that existed in their faces was obvious Sima houfy will do him nefarious due to the prostrating so much they could see it in their faces, that he committed to victory. That's the example that the people who stood by Muhammad the Prophet of the End of Time is another example of the Torah the Old Testament, well, my federal won't fit in Jean, because oh my gosh, Roger shot oh, zero VSWR Baba stoah others will be your GPS Zola via via Gabi, he will confirm

00:16:20 --> 00:16:34

the NGO gives another example of the example of a seed being being watered, and slowly taken care of and allow it to grow and become thicker and stronger. And its support. And it's aided until it stands on its own this high.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:45

And it's something that anyone who understands what what it means to build, to build a community or to take care of a seed season and seeds is beautiful. And those who disbelieve are bothered by it.

00:16:47 --> 00:17:22

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam watered his seed, and he took care of it for a very long time. 23 years I used to sit down, he took care of those around him. And he empowered them. And he taught them he educated them, and he's supported. And he aid them at the earliest cycles. And until they blossom, it's only became the people that we're able to carry Islam to the whole world, have you not done the audio salatu salam, I can tell you that the trajectory of what Islam would have looked like would have been very different. Islam today would be a very different faith, have you not invested on his thought there was seven people around him. And you're not taking it seriously to make sure

00:17:22 --> 00:17:58

that those who were around him were being taught and educated and supported and aided and empowered, and trained and coached and mentored so that they could later on do what it was that he wasn't going to be around to do on a saw to him and teaching them to do that with others, we're going to come after him. This is the spirit of our faith. The spirit of Islam is this is that we continue to mentor and coach and train and teach and educate one another. We take a stem from one generation and we pass it down to the other and it passes down to the other. And we make sure as we do that we allow people to reach their potential, their full potential in their ability, ability to lead their

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

ability to role model.

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

How do you not done the audio Serratos and had it as an investment been superficial? Had it had no any depth to it. And then after he died out of his thought to Islam, Islam would have regressed or should have been stuck into a very small area, in just a couple of people and all the wisdom and all the teachings and all the knowledge that he left out of his thought was that I'm going to get lost or would have been slowly. He just basically has been dissolved slowly throughout the centuries. But because he left behind the malleus democracy in a group of people who were prepared, we had all the tools, not by what wasn't, it wasn't.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:49

By chance, it wasn't luck. It didn't just happen. This was a lot of time that he invested on he decided to set up. So I'm saying this, you probably understand why I'm saying this is why this is so important. Because what exactly do we think we're doing as Muslims, if not that,

00:18:50 --> 00:18:58

if that's not what we're trying to do as muslims anywhere, whether in the Western and the eastern, it on the moon, it doesn't matter where we are, wherever you're living.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:18

Your function as a Muslim is to make sure that the concepts, the values, the principles that Islam teaches, is going to be passed down, passed on to the next generation and that they're going to be able to actually embrace it, teach it just as well. Practice it just as well spread it to others just as well. The moment knowledge starts to

00:19:19 --> 00:19:50

it's supposed to be like a pyramid starts with a proctologist or something and then it keeps on going and it spreads as far as the moment we start going the opposite direction, there's just a matter of time. So it's a matter of time before we come to the point where there's no one left. And that's that's one of the signs of human pm isn't offended to drill into offering an element national agenda. That's one of the one of the goals, one of the only signs I can say not the only one but one of the few signs that we can actually take, take and do something about. It is something we can avoid. There's something we can affect. You can affect definitely the amount of knowledge that

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

exists within our community by how much time we're willing to invest in teaching people and educating them and allowing them in coaching them and mentoring allowing them to actually practice and lead

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

and empower them to do so.

00:20:02 --> 00:20:11

What else is just I need we can do this for a few years as long as the next generation can take care of themselves. I think people have done that before and we've seen what that actually looks like.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:14

Well I'd hola hola Nina

00:20:16 --> 00:20:21

kiloton Lima. He's a pilot with Tyler promises all of them. Those who believe that those who

00:20:22 --> 00:20:32

performed the deeds they were asked to perform a lot of forgiveness and a great reward. May Allah grant us to be as close to them alone. I mean, let's do it number 13 of sorts of robots

00:20:33 --> 00:20:34


00:20:45 --> 00:20:45


00:20:46 --> 00:20:48

uh, you haven't done in a

00:20:50 --> 00:20:53

decade you watch I'm not sure.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:58

Either. Wahoo in

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


00:21:02 --> 00:21:06

in Namaha Iman hobby

00:21:08 --> 00:21:15

This is more of an anthem than if this doesn't seem to be working either. This report is more of an anthem than it's in the Quran

00:21:18 --> 00:21:59

where he says subhanaw taala. Yeah, you have nursing Oh, human being who all mankind he calls upon mankind subhanaw taala, in this verse, and so to answer your answer all the ethics and values the Prophet Ali's thoughts are live by and the ethics that he taught is the sort of, by far how we use our ethics with him. It is not to say that he taught in this area here, I am not sure that there are any other verses in the Quran that are similar to it. Or in any other book of faith. Yeah, you have noticed there is enough Allah, Karim Musa or Jana who should all the work, either data out of in economic community, the law here in the law has rallied on all mankind, and even created you from

00:21:59 --> 00:22:00

male and female.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:38

And we made you sure Uber and Uber and Uber populations or countries, or societies or communities and tribes. And there's a difference because shuru is talking about cities of China, what's it about, and he's talking about tiny states where there's still like, a political organization, to making sure Obon walkabout also the difference is your oben are not organized based on race and other ill are organized based on ethnicity or based on based on background data out. And he puts your subpoena with an actual reasoning for why he did this. Because we're going to

00:22:39 --> 00:22:45

be into our food, so that you may know one another. So there may be knowledge of each other, he thought

00:22:47 --> 00:22:50

there could have been any other word here.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:57

If you read this verse, any other word here to some Muslims that have made more sense.

00:22:58 --> 00:22:59

I shall put up nothing show but

00:23:00 --> 00:23:05

the purpose of something else with the purpose of guiding one another temperature with the purpose of

00:23:06 --> 00:23:21

of exposing who's right and who's wrong or whatever, he chose the word here, so that you may become acquainted with one another. So when you know so you so you may go and explore the different ways of life and those kinds of thoughts. It's very, this is a very

00:23:23 --> 00:23:35

it's a very deep area in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us Look, you're very different. Yes, you come from the Korean government, the same pair, all of you know brothers and sisters genetic, genetically, we all go back to the same person

00:23:36 --> 00:24:10

and you're created ensure Oba your different tribes in different countries in different populations, different communities are very different. And we made a different that way so that you may be acquainted with one another. To me see what others are doing and how they live. There's a beautiful, there's a there's beauty in this in this diversity. There is beauty in this variety that Allah subhanaw taala created us upon. And when he's when he said the Quran, Allah subhana wa Tada he said the Quran fully acknowledging that as the fact meeting, he then said the Quran saying that, Oh, this is just for the Filipino, he's saying in the Quran, you can very different yet the book I sent you

00:24:10 --> 00:24:14

is very much appropriate for all of you, as different as you are.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:28

Your walks of life may differ your cultures, your languages, your traditions, your customs, the way you look, the way you speak, the way you think, what you eat, how you live, all that will differ yet this book is more than enough for you

00:24:30 --> 00:24:59

later on, so that you may learn from each other, so you may get to know one another. And then he says in a coma, coma and Allah here to talk was indeed the highest status amongst us in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala are the ones who have the most Dukkha that was not something measurable. Just not a measurable traits. I can measure maybe how many times you pick them up that's measurable. You can just keep a track of how many times you come and pray in the masjid. It's measurable. A lot of things that we can measure how many days you're fast

00:25:00 --> 00:25:21

To a certain degree, we can measure that. And of course you can you can fool people that still, but that was not a measurable thing. I just thought it was 7.2 is just how do you decide you Toccoa a duck? Duck? Duck was here. It's here. You don't know. I have no idea how much duck. Well you have. If there's anything good about me, I'll assume that you have a lot. And you have no idea. How much do I have?

00:25:22 --> 00:25:24

Technically speaking, I don't know how much do I have?

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

Neither do you know how much Taqwa you have. This is only something that you can work towards. You can only try to the best of your ability to increase your taqwa by drawing yourself as close as possible to ALLAH SubhanA, which is all you really can do. There's nothing else you can do. And since the only way for us to actually

00:25:43 --> 00:26:21

distinguish or differentiate the status of people is through Dukkha. That That means by definition, that human beings can never tell apart who's better and who's worse. Just by definition, if he's saying that your status is based on taqwa, meaning the best of you are the ones who are most taqwa, then he's saying to you, basically, you have no ways to say one person is better than the other, you have no way. Because it's based on decoy, you don't have access to that. And I created you, diverse, I didn't create you, this is the right thing. And here everyone else hears all wrong, see if they can all get get on board to become more like you know, you are diverse by design you are and learn

00:26:21 --> 00:26:54

from each other. Because there's a lot you can learn from one another. The best of you are the ones who have the most tough love. In the law Holleyman. Allah indeed is the one who is omniscience, who knows or heavier, who knows what's inside the words COVID or the name could be, it's always used in the Quran to talk about knowing things that are not accessible by sense to me, or it's something that's audible and will see it as something that is visible. But clear is something that exists inside the network that is not accessible by the Census of a human being. So he always uses that subpoena once I know what he's referring to something that exists on the inside. And you can follow

00:26:54 --> 00:27:16

the word in the Quran. And you'll find exactly the usage of it almost all through the Mossad I name is the umbrella term, your omniscience he knows all whether it's hidden, whether it's obvious what it doesn't matter. It's it's known to a Muslim outside, but then he uses an extra word, an extra an extra name of his opponent to allow you to understand the point you don't only leave is also have you noticed going on the inside, which no one else has access to

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

is sort of tough. I mean, this is the first I'll talk about I don't know what number this is. Let me see if I can figure it out.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:27

Foster slides last year, I

00:27:28 --> 00:27:29

think I think this is

00:27:30 --> 00:27:37

number 22. I think it could be wrong. It could I could be wrong. But this is the idea that I think we're going to talk about regardless of the number.

00:27:39 --> 00:28:12

So it gives us this comparison is this epic comparison between the path of righteousness and the path of falsehood, the path of genuine the path of norm of hellfire, and you have to make a decision. Like as you're going through these tools from top to Hadid is like giving you options, and you have to make a choice. And then based on that choice, you either move to the next student or you don't, the moment you make the wrong choice, just stop right there and walk out, you make the right choice, you move on to the next sort of the path, give tells us gives us this option, these options, this choice, through a beautiful story that it tells it tells the story of creation of life of

00:28:12 --> 00:28:33

existence, and walks us through how Allah has created everything and greeted us. And then how some of us believe that some of us didn't, they talks about deaths upon data that he talks about resurrection on the day of judgment and coming to Allah subhanaw taala, with our witnesses, with our deeds, and with our books and all that. And in the midst of all of this, you have this idea where he says to partner with the item, the opportunity to reflect in Minerva.

00:28:35 --> 00:28:46

And you can almost imagine the silence that follows this part of the verse deed, you have been in a state of Oblivion in a state of indifference of all

00:28:48 --> 00:29:05

it's true. We avoid talking about these things. We avoid thinking about them. We avoid spending too much time reminiscing on or contemplating because they're uncomfortable. They really are thinking about death and thinking about what comes after death. It's not a comfortable thought and it's not something enjoyable by any measure.

00:29:06 --> 00:29:15

So yeah, many of us are in a state of indifference, but couldn't if you've often been hurt that you just didn't You didn't spend the time that was needed to contemplate this and reflect in order for you to prepare yourself

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

like a chef.

00:29:19 --> 00:29:22

And now we have removed from your veil.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:25

Is the cover removed the cover free?

00:29:26 --> 00:29:31

For bizarre who can yo I need your eyesight today is 100%

00:29:33 --> 00:29:38

How do you Arabic language is when something is sharp and something is solid metal siren bus

00:29:40 --> 00:29:53

is actually referring somehow not just to the eyesight he is referring to the insight because using in this terms of hiding with data because it's understood, but also Luca Liova Hadid now you see things as clear as the sun. There is full clarity right now.

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

But it doesn't matter.

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

The clarity that we gain on the Day of Judgment doesn't mean it

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


00:30:01 --> 00:30:09

doesn't help the clarity that you have in dunya will and the day of judgment it does. But on that day, all of the all of the doubts,

00:30:11 --> 00:30:12

all of the uncertainties,

00:30:13 --> 00:30:27

all of that, like couldn't have, you're off the team and had all of the stuff that you were indifferent about. You didn't spend time thinking about your ability to just let go. It was such something uncomfortable. So we just kind of didn't really spend enough time to invest any time and trying to figure it out. On the Day of Judgment, you're told.

00:30:31 --> 00:30:35

Oh, do you see everything? Is it fully clear to you today? Yes.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:48

I say this is 2020. You see every 100% Nothing, nothing is oblivious? Nothing, nothing is unclear anymore. Nothing is ambiguous thing was all full clarity.

00:30:51 --> 00:30:55

No game. It is no game. What's the point? What's the point was

00:30:58 --> 00:31:20

to like check the broadcast, unfortunately, just a little bit too high and your loss of the bodies just just a little bit before. Had you not been in a state of indifference just a little bit before it would have meant something it would have it would have died, it would have guided behavior and would have allowed certain choices that we need to make. But then another day of judgment. Note that everything is clear. Now you have

00:31:23 --> 00:31:34

anything unclear today. Any questions about God today? Any questions, reward or punishment today? Any questions about accountability? Any questions about righteousness or falsehood? Or what you should have done?

00:31:35 --> 00:31:40

Everyone on that day? Like no, no, no, we should have done it. Everything

00:31:41 --> 00:31:42

was pretty clear. I'm not sure why we

00:31:46 --> 00:31:48

had the today see things.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:02

This mic.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:15


00:32:16 --> 00:32:18

see if you're hearing yourself. The

00:32:21 --> 00:32:27

speaker here in a minute, Elaine says the stories he's about or whatever it

00:32:28 --> 00:32:31

wants to do, and Persevere, persevere.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:48

It gives us the option of guidance versus this guidance a broader audience. That was really is his main job is function was to bring guidance to people. You spend a lot of time out of your life as I'm trying to achieve that. Unfortunately, not a lot of people listen to

00:32:49 --> 00:32:56

those Americans who are given the body and stuff as I'm doing the difficult news. So he's told by Allah subhanaw taala, and show perseverance.

00:32:57 --> 00:32:59

Until the ruling of your Lord comes to you.

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

What do you mean the ruling, meaning whether this is going to work out or not? Whether what you've done is going to turn out to be enough or not. What that's what he

00:33:10 --> 00:33:20

said was never offered any form of guarantee that he was going to work. If he was ever told, you're going to end up actually if you read the Quran, the Quran tells us all this, he was telling us

00:33:21 --> 00:33:30

all these stories of the movement, right? And so Doom and Medion. All these stories were stories, pretty ugly ending.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:37

He was told the story of Issa and yeah, prophets that were either killed or they tried to kill them.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:53

Profits are kicked out of their homes, like even Rahim is a grandfather Ibrahim Ali has set up. So as he's listening to these stories, there's not a lot of examples that are really successful. It's very few that have success. And most of the examples are actually being scared. He's listening probably to the Quran hearing.

00:33:54 --> 00:34:15

And I've already done Lisa mood, and I've done liberty and he's probably wondering, at some point, there'll be a limit or operation that's scaring him because he does not what he wants the outcome of his work to be I think his thought was set up. So you think told us what it was to be really helped me a lot Vicki after she's done, can you to persevere until Allah gives you his until your Lord gives you his ruling? For in that Gabby Ioannina

00:34:17 --> 00:34:19

and you are in our union and in our eyes

00:34:21 --> 00:34:53

You know, if you go to an Arab country and if Arabs are speaking to each other nicely, which is very rare, but what they do when they do and they're speaking to each other the person will tell their unique, they'll say if you ask for something, I'll give this to you. And if you translate it into English it sounds really weird. I'll give it to you from my eyes. Right? If you look at you why why you're not in your I don't need your eyes. What like why are you using your eyes? Because it doesn't. That means I'm willing to get it's an exaggeration that they are but I'm willing to give you my eyes if you ask for them. So for index so not only is that give you my eyes, but also you're

00:34:53 --> 00:35:00

under my eyesight, meaning I'm always watching over I'm always there to protect you. I never I never stopped thinking about you. I'm always

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

A round you like you're not you're not someone that I remember every once in a while you're someone who's very very dear to me so you're it's like you're under my eyes at all times. So he's been saying told some Allah He stood beside him what's really helped me and persevere until the ruling of your Lord is given to you for it. Nick Unionise you are always under our our eyesight. I'm always watching over you always. For in Nicosia Ewelina, what are the most beautiful things he was ever told some of the highs. And the thing is, it's not just specific to him. It's specific to although it's general to all those who do what he's doing it he's still not to a settlement in their lives.

00:35:34 --> 00:36:10

You're always under his iSeq Subhana wa he's always watching. Don't worry, persevere, his ruling his decree will come through at some points, whatever it may be. It may be that you're successful, maybe that you're not but you're always under his eyesight. He never stops watching over you. If you stop feeling it it's just that's not a lock it in watching us a lot. It's a lack of your sensitivity is just you stop feeling it for whatever reason, but he didn't stop watching supine O'Donnell in neck of the eye you know, you're in our eyes, you're you're under our eyesight. Subhanallah one of the most beautiful words or descriptions in the Quran was definitely the speaker he continued to exert

00:36:10 --> 00:36:22

exalt the name of the Name of your Lord in a state of praise every time you get up. The home doesn't mean stand up and get up from bed. The home is when you take a stand.

00:36:23 --> 00:36:56

Right? This is what the means in the Quran. Almost always. No COVID standing up and Judas is sitting down do not follow different but Yam is is taking a stand for what is right and followed is not doing that just sitting behind is not actually fulfilling your role that these are the fidelity and equitable Maha su level for example, he didn't sit down they just sat back What about Allah Allah Bluebeam will follow and we strengthen their husband they they took a stand it's not that the people of God they stood up they could have done they could have done it sitting down as well that's not an issue of whether your posture is an issue of mentality it's an issue of taking a stand so what's

00:36:56 --> 00:37:23

happened to have your hand be a lot bigger here at the home when you take your stand as you do that exalt the Name of your Lord in a state of praise women a lady and they do that as nine negatives well for So continue to exalt him what he developed on YouTube as the stars slowly go away as the stars fade away as the sun comes up continue to do it as far as much as you can. Which is getting what most people probably learn Ramadan during his day after vigil until the sun comes up when you get to see stars anymore. It is rooted in this teaching of sorts.

00:37:25 --> 00:37:48

Okay, I think it's time right okay, staying pretty sharp. So Charlotte data again, we'll be praying outside if you feel uncomfortable at some point or it's cold or whatever, you're welcome to actually go on the inside the huddle please don't pray Asia in the front part of the masjid because I just you're gonna get punched in his face. But I personally you're welcome to pray in different parts of the blackboard I think if we stay in the huddle men up front and women behind probably probably better

00:37:49 --> 00:37:56

and then we can have the actual children can actually be in the front part of the messenger will be bothering anybody that way we fixed the problem of people in the children's are gone.
