I mean Llamosa Louisa Limerick Ireland, Amina Mohamed Anwar early he was not happy here, Jamaica.

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

Probably tonight today's the last day I started 835. Tomorrow I'll probably start at 840 ish, maybe a little bit, because 916 Now,

00:00:14 --> 00:00:17

actually 40 minutes before, there's a lot, I

00:00:19 --> 00:00:27

mean, what else do we have to do so might as well, I thought to do that, if you never get it through them, half of them, so might as well try and start a bit earlier. So

00:00:28 --> 00:00:48

the cluster of blessings or or bounties, which is the cluster of sorrows, that is Ibrahim Al hedger, and each one looks at it from a beautiful from a different angle, I love these sorts, I really do. I really enjoy them, I enjoy recite, reciting them, I enjoy listening to them be recited, they're very, very straightforward, and they're being meaningful.

00:00:50 --> 00:01:16

So within that being the longest, and the last one, it talks about the fact that all blessings source their sources from Allah subhanaw taala. And thus, you must use them based on his rules, based on the way he wants them to be used not based off the way you want, because you're not yours, like you don't own them, he does, it's like you're walking in someone's house and you're using their stuff, if you're using their stuff, you should use it based on whatever they want you to use it not not based on how you want to use it. And that's just at the end the world is Allah subhanaw taala is

00:01:18 --> 00:01:26

kingdom. So everything that you have is basically owned by him. The cluster after that is starting starting with sorting a slot.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:46

And this is gonna go quite far down, there's gonna be this is like the this is the largest cluster of students in Bhutan is going to go quite far. And so I'm not going to I'll talk about the end of it when we come close to it. So we have a few nights of talking about it. And this one talks and this cluster is it talks about handler reseller, how to carry the message of Allah carrying the message of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:57

The the pros and cons advice of what to do and what not to do, what to be aware of, and what to use, when what what are going to be your

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

what is going to be an advantage for you when as you do it. And it's going to be a disadvantage. And that's what this cluster of stores talks about. And in terms of

00:02:08 --> 00:02:14

focus, and you can see, you'll see how clear that is as we go along with this, because each one takes a different angle. And so what they saw

00:02:16 --> 00:02:55

is the first one, and it does that really is the first Surah within that cluster, it does it very elegantly. And it talks about the fact how the Quran is the beacon and is in the reset itself, the message has been moved from one generation to the other. Now, as Muslims, it's your turn here, now it's in your head, just as the people of noise started out. And then the people of Ibrahim, every generation were responsible of carrying this message of Allah subhanaw taala to the next generation. And basically, as Muslims you are now carrying it is yours, here it is. And it's going to be in the form of the Quran itself. And that's what sort of talks about, you are now responsible, you're

00:02:55 --> 00:03:30

responsible for the message of Allah subhanaw taala, you carry sole responsibility. This is a very important concept, meaning anyone can carry it, but in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala, the group that is carrying the message that he that he approves of, are the Muslims, so you're responsible for it. And the responsibility of it comes in the source of comes in the form of the Quran itself. And that's what this talks about. And so it says, here's what you need to build your civilization, you carry the message, you need to build a society, you need to build a country, you need to build a nation, you need to build a nation, what do you need to build a nation. The fourth thing is to build

00:03:30 --> 00:04:03

a nation, which is what suits witchcraft. The idea, you have to have the idea has to be rock solid, which is the story of a gaffe. And the people who think that they had an idea, there's only three of them and a dog and they were still named the outlasted a king and everything that and all his arm, all of his glory and all of the armies why because they had a solid idea he was bankrupt intellectually. So number one, the idea number two, the wealth, which is the story of us, hydrogen, the team, right? Number three, the knowledge of the story of Musa and talking about oil. And the fourth is power, you need to have power, you need numbers, and you need people who are willing to

00:04:03 --> 00:04:33

stand their ground, which is the story of the economy. These are the four things that you need. That's why we made these sort of every single week, by the way, we used to have every week to remind yourself, this is what you need to build your nation. And in order for you to be responsible for this reset, you have to build a nation, a nation is built on these four things. These are the basic four, you need to have a rock solid idea that you're willing to live for and die for. You need to have, you need to accumulate wealth, you need to have knowledge and then you need power in the status. If one of them isn't there, then it's not really a nation nation, which is why we're not a

00:04:33 --> 00:04:37

nation like in this country. We're not a nation, we're just a population. If you want to actually

00:04:39 --> 00:05:00

qualify as a community, or as a society, we one of these things need to centralize our idea, centralize the religion, which we don't have. We're all over the place and there's no central centralization for the religion itself. And that's the most difficult one of all I don't think it's even possible. I don't even I don't even dream of it. You centralize the wealth. The money has to be in the middle like you have to be. You have to all be

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

paying to one thing to one big 90 of fund and that fund is what allows us to buy a house doesn't get married and centralize the money, or you centralize the education. I mean, we all have the exact same

00:05:13 --> 00:05:42

meaning we all have our learning whatever it is that we need to learn, and it's being organized by another group, neither mean me we have a centralized group, they're saying, This is what we need. There's a number of lawyers we need. These are the number of engineers we need doctors, people who are going to get into politics you can get, and then the or we centralize the politics, which is the status, which is the last one. Decentralized that at least the politics meaning all and we can't do that here. You can't you can you can't have politics based on religion, which I agree to, but you know, honestly, but we can't do it. So what we're stuck with is the fourth part, or the one that

00:05:42 --> 00:05:50

just doesn't really talk about, which is like a one level under is you centralized? This is the social aspect, meaning we all just clump up and live in one place.

00:05:51 --> 00:06:13

Don't live in the same area, everything Chinatown or a little earlier. Yeah, these are how communities clump up. I think that's even even though I think it's difficult for us, I think the only one that's possible is the financial one. The only one thing that the only thing that I think is possible for Muslims in terms of centralizing their society and turning into a nation is centralizing their wealth, and everything else is almost almost almost impossible to actually happen. But well, if he can do it

00:06:15 --> 00:06:41

15 1015 People who are trusted and decide to run a big fund, all the Muslims pay, there's a cut and those sort of cuts and a it basically as a Muslim, you have a HELOC meaning your base a subscription, and you put your money there. And that wealth is what moves and it serves the needs of the society builds a schools, it helps people buy homes, help people get married, help people who are in debt, it just it just helps people move forward. And then as Muslims, we have that resource for us for ourselves to you know, to grow.

00:06:42 --> 00:07:13

But that's also looking after us and we're gonna start somewhere so we'll get some and with that, but each store as we're gonna go along is going to talk about an aspect of how to carry this message to someone tells you that you are responsible, it's in the form of the Quran. So look, here's the four things you need. You need these four, you need the idea has to be rock solid, you need the wealth, you need the knowledge and then you need the status and if any or the power, and if any of those is missing, then you're not going to really do much. Okay, so let's start with the first. I have. Let's do 96 If you don't mind so 96

00:07:15 --> 00:07:16

so that we can make

00:07:19 --> 00:07:32

our own little bit HeyMy in a shape on your regime. Mana Manami lasagna hum in back out in one well who woke me

00:07:33 --> 00:07:45

up and know who Hayato by EBA? Well, Anna jerseyan know whom Jerome B as an EMA can we armor?

00:07:46 --> 00:08:19

This serves as the only verse in the Quran that offers the individual Muslim a promise. Muslims as a group are offered promises in the Quran. But individuals you're not offered anything. You're not promised anything. You're not promised wealth, you're not promised health you're not promised long life you're not promised victory you not promised anything as an individual except what ALLAH promises and this is what he's talking about the blessings coming from Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the exact right place with this verse to exist in the Quran. When I meet Sonya and Zachary and those who perform the deeds that Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala commanded them to perform male

00:08:19 --> 00:08:19

or female

00:08:21 --> 00:08:42

with the state in a state of belief. What's the promise? Well, I know you're no higher don't forget, but we're going to offer them a life a good life. A life of a play game that we're playing is something that is that has beauty and if I asked you would you if your your eating is good enough for most Jonnie Arabic dialects it tastes good.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:50

There were a Baba and tuba come from the fact that there's goodness attached to it.

00:08:51 --> 00:09:24

And here's the pirate What's odd is not promising. You're going to be very wealthy and have the best car and have the biggest house now, what he's talking about, Hi, Tom, thank you, but you're gonna live a life that's meaningful. You will live a life where you are fulfilled. You will live a life where you feel that there's a purpose to it. It's not meaning it's not just No, it's not a meaningless life, the life has importance to it and significance. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala promises you. If you believe in Allah and you do the right deeds, whether you're male or female, he promise you that promises you that you will live a life that is meaningful, but are not

00:09:24 --> 00:09:29

he you know, you will live a life Hayato by Hebrew, a life that that it has significance that has purpose to it.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:38

fulfillment is the number one sought out thing by human beings on this planet.

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

The moment a human being has enough food, clothing and shelter, like when you have your basic needs. It's when you don't have your basic needs that you don't think about these things.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:55

We this is one of the this is a realization that I had to come to later in life. I wish I wish I had learned this younger.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

And the reason that I learned it later is because I lived in a place where

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

those basic needs were not met, most people couldn't have couldn't make ends meet. So they were barely they

00:10:08 --> 00:10:23

could barely make sure they had enough to eat and enough clothing to dress themselves and a shelter that is dignifying they didn't have any of that. And because there was always something missing, they were continuously running after this Mirage and running after the their basic needs.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:36

So it's hard to have to think about fulfillment, when you can basically you can barely fulfill your needs. It's hard, I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, you should definitely do. But it's it's more difficult to do so because you can't find your basic needs.

00:10:37 --> 00:11:05

But once you have your basic needs, which is what a nation or a society should be able to offer you what you should be able to have in your life, and this is your rights, especially if there's enough resources for it, then the human being the first thing they are going to be looking for is meaning, we start wondering about meaning and we want to feel fulfilled, we want to feel that we matter that what we're doing matters, that life goes somewhere. And that's what Islam offers you. That's the only guarantee you have from Allah subhanaw taala as an individual, there's nothing else. He guarantees nothing else for you. Sometimes we don't use them, we're thinking Allah so because

00:11:06 --> 00:11:25

because we're going to obey Allah subhanaw taala then he owes us this, and he owes us that you'll get no, no, he owes you nothing, nothing at all. But he does guarantee a life that is fulfilled. He does guarantee a sense of fulfillment and significance and purpose and meaning in your life, which is the most important thing that you can look for. There's nothing that outweighs it.

00:11:27 --> 00:12:02

The sense of emptiness and loss that people struggle with that don't those who don't know Allah subhanaw taala they struggle with that is the number one cause for for a lot of the 90 the basic mental health struggles that we have in this world and from anxiety to depression to it's a lack of motivation to procrastination and laziness and these basic bad habits that we all don't like and don't, it comes from a lack of fulfillment. Like you don't have this sense of fulfillment. There's not there. We don't know why. Why should I get up in the morning? Why do I care? Why do I care? Give me a reason to care. No, you do have a reason of course you do. You have there's meaning for you.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:41

Your meaning is actually very important, very profound. And that's the highest on paper that he caught promises us subprime without what ended up in the home, Angela home. We asked any American family whenever we're going to give them their and either their reward based on the best of what of what, what they were doing based on the best. Within the same verses here. He says, I know what I'm not going to make them read it. But I think it's interesting. You'll find the verse right around these verses, where he has Matt in the Columbian fed format in the law, Heba what you have ends, whatever you own is limited. It's not infinity is finite, it ends, everything does whatever you own,

00:12:41 --> 00:12:54

will come to an end. Whatever it is that you have, whatever it is that you enjoy, it's all going to end. And anything that ends no matter how much it is, no matter what degree of abundance it exists. The fact that it ends mean there's not too much of it.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:04

From an end, Allah Heba what Allah subhanaw taala has was, is infinite will stay forever, it never ends. That's why there's, let's just think about joy.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:38

What how much joy there is, it ends, in the fact that it ends, it's just it's not, because when it comes to that ending peace, it doesn't seem much anymore. And no matter how long you live, the moment you come to that last moment before you live, your life ends, it doesn't feel that you lived a lot. That's just the reality of life, everything ends and anything that ends is not a lot to kind of Allah, which is why he's so solid, like, some would say dunya is worthless. It's not worth anything. But we think What are you talking about? You know, so you haven't seen our duniya? You know, this, it ends to him, and you need to see if it doesn't end? Isn't there a moment where it's

00:13:38 --> 00:14:13

not gonna exist anymore to be taken away, then it's not worth it? Because what's the what's the point if he's going to end and be taken away, no matter how much you did, or how much you enjoyed it, or how how large you live, for how long, you've come to a moment where it's taken away. And once it's gone, it's not it's not a lot, it's not a lot, the fact that it ends is not a lot, but he's telling you what doesn't end is worthy, even if it doesn't end this small. And that's why what, that's why he's promising you something that doesn't end. That sense of fulfillment never goes away, it stays with you till the end, we take your wealth away. At the end, we take your health away at

00:14:13 --> 00:14:44

the end, but we can't take away your sense of fulfillment. No one can reach that deep and take it out, it will stay with you till the last moment you will die with it. You'll take it with you. You'll go on to the next world with it. It'll be it'll stick with you until way, way beyond the end. That's why it's more meaningful. Does that make sense to you? Well, no matter how much it is, let's say you have 50 arts and you own your own private jet and you rule the world, you will die at the end of it. So it's not that much because at that last moment, we'll get to see you as everything as being stripped away.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:56

But fulfillment no one can take that away. Not that's forever. That's forever. Okay, let's do it. Let's move on to a slot just for the

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

so 1314 Is that alright?

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

All you do in your life is you write that book. That's all you're doing.

00:16:48 --> 00:17:05

And you're putting a lot of effort into writing this book. Unfortunately, a lot of people, they don't take time to revise what they wrote. You don't ask feedback on what they wrote. You're not looking to see make to make sure that the content of what they're writing is meaningful. But we are all writing a book and that's all we're doing.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:43

That's all there you're doing nothing else. Besides writing a book. Rather than Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala will publish it for you. Try getting books published in dunya. It's very hard.

And then you're told you will milk the Rokita Buck now, you know how you want authors like to do authors like to go to libraries and public spaces and into large conventions. And they read they do a public reading of their books. I'm not sure if you ever seen this before. And it's a big deal for authors so they can sit there and sign right now the book you're giving, you're already signed it and you're gonna get a

00:18:33 --> 00:19:09

public reading. And you're gonna get a public you're gonna sit thing or read the book, in front of maybe not a lot of people, if you're lucky, if you're lucky. It's not a lot of people. If you're unlucky, it'll be a lot of people. If you're lucky, it'll only be a few. We Allah subhanho wa taala. Some of them are maybe some people who were involved. That's pretty much it. But you get a public reading of your book. So lucky to have agreed your book has been a seeker Leo, Malika Siva, you yourself is more than enough to judge, you're gonna judge yourself today. Read this book, and judge yourself and tell me, tell me, the person who wrote this, the character, the hero, the the the

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

progression, the hero of this book,

00:19:12 --> 00:19:24

the star of this movie, tell me where this person should go. You will be the judge of the person in this book, we're gonna put this in your hand, read the book and tell me what you think of this person that this book is telling the story of?

00:19:26 --> 00:19:33

It's gonna be very surprising when you're reading this book, and you're like, that's how it was. Nah, that can't be me.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:43

We get caught up in details when we live. We fail to see the bigger picture. We don't zoom out. We don't hold ourselves accountable. We don't have our self awareness.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:51

But imagine, I want you to sit today and think what is going to be in that book of yours? What story is that going to tell?

00:19:52 --> 00:20:00

What do you what are you going to be reading your Malkia? How is it going to begin? Right because the book doesn't start from your birth. That's not fair because you don't remember anything.

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

that stuff will start from a moment when you woke up to the world, right and went full and

00:20:06 --> 00:20:40

woke up and was able to process and it was able to distinguish right from wrong and tell us a story. And what was one of the first choices that this person made? What does this person What did this person make base most of their decisions on in life? What were what were his motives? What were what were her goals and intentions, what was he's trying to go do with their life? See, when you read a novel, the author tells you this stuff about the characters, right? That they were jealous or they were envious, or they're hateful, or they were disgruntled, or they were loving, or they were scared or they were sad.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:47

When you tell me your story, I don't get that. But you'll you read it, your will PM, it will come with all the all the above.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:52

They'll come with the intentions. And even worse, it will come with the consequences.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:25

The stuff that this is your book, you wrote it to read it. At the end of it, the person will go to their final destination with almost no objection at all. This book part is the last thing after the human being refuses the testimony of America the testimony of the people in the testimony, after all of that at the end way at the end, just read the book. Here's what here's what you wrote, read, tell me what you think of this person. And by that point, the human being will accept their destiny is very scary, scary to me. That the human being accepts their destiny or millennia.

00:21:27 --> 00:22:06

Those are going to not accept you don't object anymore. You don't go in there with objections. They're not you don't feel Allah subhanaw taala oppressed them. No one agenda was screaming out of oppression. No, they're screaming get us out. Show us mercy give us another chance all that but no one screams we were oppressed by the vote of no one says that. Go to any jail. Any jail. 99% of people in jail Muslim 99% will be people in jail, jail are oppressed and it wasn't them in Jannah honored percent of them don't feel alone. You don't feel oppressed? That's scary. Why? Because they read their book. They read their book and like Yeah, honestly, I can't see whoever did this to be

00:22:06 --> 00:22:24

worthy of of what I was hoping I would get. They'll still ask for it. Because we're we have that greed and have that passion was last year, but we won't feel like we deserve it. We'll accept the destiny of it. So let's impound data center. May Allah give us our books and our right hands Lahoma mean? Okay, let's do a number 23.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

Here's a list of values and ethics and behaviors that you have to adhere to until the end. And it

starts out if you look at these verses, you read them for a page and a half a little bit on the other side of it. It starts out with what's called Auto Booka booka and your Lord decreed.

Sir, no, you continue to show them the best you have.

Or you weren't around. You weren't around. You remember two years old? You remember being five. You don't remember any of this. There are people who took care of you. There are people who made sure that you came to the world and halal and then they took care of you

00:26:40 --> 00:27:09

Doesn't mean you can't feel it. You can totally feel it. Just don't say it and don't make it apparent. Just don't make it. Don't explain it. This is what you're feeling to them. It's okay for a parent to frustrate you. Normal. It'd be weird if they didn't pay back, Habib. It's payback. Once you have a child, you understand exactly what I'm saying. It's payback. My father enjoys seeing me struggle with my toddler. It makes him happy because watching this is exactly what you did to me. So enjoy.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:50

It's okay did he frustrated us don't say it. In Arabic the weakest letter of the Arabic language anyone who said he said you either. There are skills to study the strength of letters in Arabic language, there are attributes of strength, like Jehovah, right and Ill Dubach and shit. So if you give a point for each of those, and then you give for the opposite that hums, and Rahaga it give them zero, the one letter there's only one letter in Arabic that gets zero out of 10, meaning our zero to five, all of his attributes are weak. It's only one letter in the Arabic language. For us, it is hurtful. For

00:27:52 --> 00:27:53

don't say

00:27:54 --> 00:28:03

don't use a two syllable, a one syllable word that has the weakest word length letter in the language to object to anything they have to say. Don't even say

00:28:05 --> 00:28:15

this is the weakest thing you can say this is the most simple form of objection. Don't even use that. You don't like it don't like a jacket. No one saying that you have to like it. Just keep that to yourself. Because your parents

00:28:16 --> 00:29:00

will attend her home. And don't point out that they're wrong to their faces. Don't make them feel upset. Don't correct them publicly. Don't humiliate them and no don't. Don't yell at them. And what I did was put Lahoma colon Karima and say to them something that is generous that's coming from a place of generosity inside of you work now whom Jana Hello liminal, Rama and lower your wing in humiliation, out of mercy. This is this is a figure of speech. Obviously, none of us have wings. But as Jenna has done is the wing of humility. It's like what are your wings used for wings are used to soar your upper thigh you look down at everyone with your parents, you take your wing and you put it

00:29:00 --> 00:29:14

in a humble way on the ground so they can step on it when they go when they step on it as they come back. It's called rub your humble woman and say oh my lord have compassion and mercy upon them come out of biennial so he you know, just like they took care of me when I was a child

00:29:15 --> 00:29:58

Lahoma me? Yeah. So make sure that if you are lucky enough, and you are fortunate enough to have aging parents, or have your parents in your life because some people don't, that you show them, the SN that the that Allah subhanaw taala talks about in the Quran, he he associates this command with his own name. Every other command comes on its own. It has its own little area, except this one. It comes stuck with the first one waka Dora Buka a lotta Abu iya who will validate any external together not even filmer didn't even say so mobile validating I didn't do this after he as he's saying do it together. Worship Me c'est la la Allah as you take care of your parents as you do it.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

Not after don't do it out.

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

Sir, no do it at the same time,

00:30:03 --> 00:30:24

nation have a vocal will not prevail. A nation that is filled with a book with people who do not honor their parents will not take care of them, who would not show them their excellence is a nation that will go nowhere, is a nation will stay exactly where it will regress. horrifically. Allah subhanaw taala will not take care of a nation of oppein.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:36

Now this is a huge this is an issue that needs unpacking, this is ranked number three and the number of problems I have to deal with maybe on a daily basis, they should have been written.

00:30:37 --> 00:31:09

So when he's unpacking, so yes, there are details here. And yes, there are exceptions. And yes, there are certain abuse of power that occurs here and there from parents sometimes, and things that they don't really get to say that they act like they can't, there are certain mistakes that are made, we are does not mean that and here's here's one piece of advice for you, if you're a parent, don't use beer on your children use the concept of beer on yourself. He is the Quran is not here to be used on others, the grinder that you have in your hand is there to be used on you. So when you talk about beer, don't talk to about beer with your children. No, no, no talk about beer about to

00:31:09 --> 00:31:38

yourself, let your child figure that out. Because when you say you'll have to perform better that's very self serving. And that's corruption to a certain degree, let him configure that that he or she figured that out elsewhere, the better that you need to practice is the one that you practice, the one that you have to care about is the one that you have to practice. Your parents are deceased because you're old, it doesn't mean there's no better, better, it's still there. If you're gonna remind them a bit to your parents, your children, then make sure you do that very kindly and gently and tenderly. And it's not in a self serving way you're doing it because you don't want to show them

00:31:38 --> 00:32:12

a hope because you don't want them to fall into a problem. Where are they gonna harm themselves better is based on the needs of the parent, their needs, meaning better means that you have to be there for them whenever they need you that if they are in crying your support or aid financially, socially or emotionally, that you provide that for them better doesn't mean that they get to dictate every decision that you make in your life. That doesn't mean that I know that your parents don't like that from but did you don't get to tell them what to study. You don't get to tell them where they can work and what job to pick up. Unless they're doing something haram, where they have to obey

00:32:12 --> 00:32:29

you because my roof because you're telling them to do the right thing, I don't know. But based on your personal preference, you don't get to say that to them. You don't get to make those decisions, you get to be involved, but you'll get you'll get to dictate you can't use the bitter card for the stuff. That's the problem. If you overuse the card, the card becomes

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

You worthless. Sorry, if you overuse something, keep on using the same thing every time people stop caring about it. Better can the only only use when it when it should be which is the needs of the person, as a parent, you're entitled to your children to take care of you to care for your your to care about your feelings to care about whether you are eating whether you're financially taken care of or socially taken care of, or emotionally taken care of. That's that's the couple that they have you have upon them. And they have to they must see that through. But it's not based on not based on control.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:22

Not based on control. And I have to leave it at that for people thinking about but remember these verses historically. Were Allah subhanaw taala he talks about worship of himself General General of towhead immediately within worldly deity so no need to show your parents excellence and the beauty and importance of these items. Okay.

00:33:24 --> 00:33:33

Let's do a 59 I'm running out of time. My my minor arcana normal CW T in

00:33:35 --> 00:34:16

the bobby handle on 110 minutes, then Potter mobile see a lot fall by the movie. When Nora said or been in touch with within a sort of a slot that talks about carrying the message you're responsible and it's going to come in the form of the Quran. This verse is extremely important is crucial. Why is it the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was not granted all of these miracles that prophets before him were granted. So this is what he the Allah subhanaw taala it says in the Quran well, ma'am Anna, Anna, and notice that I will I think the only reason that we did not send further miracles physical phenomena is that people physical phenomena that people would like to see, like the you know, Musa

00:34:16 --> 00:34:19

hit the sea, the sea opens up the NACA of sada.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:54

And because Debbie has a wound that they had no effects on the earlier nations, maybe gave you earlier nations all of these things, and they didn't believe what I tell you now. So Muda, Nakata, mobile Scylla, and specifically for them will begin in the NACA, the NACA was insane. This was a this was they asked for something, the people of Finn would sat around half drunk, and they started mocking sada who was trying to convey the message saying, maybe will believe in you, maybe, but you have to do something for us. And they're all laughing and giggling. It's like, Yeah, you see that they had that big boulder in the middle of a mountain. And they start saying, you see that boulder

00:34:54 --> 00:34:59

has to add to just rip open. And that other guy laughed and said yes, and she can't

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

has to come out of it. And then a third guys, I guess she has to be so big that she has to drink from the world for a full day everyone's laughing their head off, and she has to have this she has to be pregnant.

00:35:10 --> 00:35:25

And once they were done, saw that I said, if I do that for you, are we done? And they all sobered up. If I guess he was serious if I do if I deliver this to you, Well, you say La Ilaha illa Allah we move on and we don't end up losing everything. Because punishment is on his way. We don't

00:35:26 --> 00:35:42

return of course, if you do it, so he did it. What did they do for acaba? They slaughtered it and ate its meat and they slaughter his calf with it. Ebola movie Her they didn't treat it very well. Well, my normal seat will be at the wheel. We only send these signs and miracles

00:35:45 --> 00:36:09

put some fear in the hearts of servants so that they actually revere ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. That's why when you go to the end of this call and look Melaka at your eyeliner, or Liam, booyah. And then you go into these verses. I just do those. Can you guys hear those for the I think we'll end we'll end with that challenge on what Paul Loulan mean, I like a tough job. I don't I mean, I'll be

00:36:10 --> 00:36:11

I will talk when I

00:36:13 --> 00:36:17

mean nothing healing while being referred to in general and how often you

00:36:18 --> 00:36:21

genial or I want to split us.

00:36:22 --> 00:36:23


00:36:24 --> 00:36:35

Kisa tina bill, he wanted my Ekati Babila. We are Khun Allah Aloka by means of growth in our office.

00:36:37 --> 00:37:04

One minute little thing Hot Tuna Zilla, Elena kita been up on pole Sobha and out of the hull Kong to Illa Basha or rasuna Quran when the prophet Elijah was invited to the masjid again is what they said, We won't believe in you until you're able to have water gush out of the land for us. Or you have a garden from the date trees and vineyards.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:16

Journal and hierarchy data had to do when you have the river and you have rivers run in between the gardens that you own, or you have the sky shower.

00:37:18 --> 00:37:58

Semak Amazon Delina keys are pieces of the sky shower upon us otet to Billa, he will come here you'll bring us God himself or the Metallica. Oh, you're gonna like a beta museography It is a big castle of gold. Oh Tarkov is summer or you need to elevate into the sky. And then when you elevate you won't believe in your elevation until we see a mullet give you the Quran in your hand is what they're saying. Also behind our OB, Falcon to Al Bashir of Sudan, exalted as my Lord, what am I besides a human messenger, I just bring you the I just bring you the teaching. Because the Quran is better than all of that. And the Quran is more meaningful than all of that. A physical, a physical

00:37:58 --> 00:38:29

miracle will work for the person who saw it at the time they saw it. But then the people come later won't won't work for them. And even the people who see it, even the people will see it won't necessarily end up believing in it. Because there's so many ways to be fooled. But when a book comes that teaches that gives you a way of life that gives you values and principles that actually allows you to become the miracle instead of you waiting for something to happen. You're waiting for a miracle to occur. Here's here's a way to live where you will become a miracle where you actually change from one status and go into the other with with nothing besides willpower, was nothing

00:38:29 --> 00:38:43

besides the facilitation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the willpower that you have on the inside. That's why the Prophet Allah, Allah Subhan Allah, I want to I tell you, I'm just I'm just a prophet mess. I'm just a human messenger, bringing you a teaching instead of asking for all of this other stuff.

00:38:44 --> 00:39:24

And that's the beauty of of the teaching. That's why at the end of the sort of the slot right at the end of it will help the learner who will help the NWSL and indeed we descended it through righteousness and through righteousness. It was descended. That's what the verses said. My mom said NACA Mubasher on one Avira we only sent you to bring news of good news of the future and to warn them while Quran and Farakka now who Lita Cara who Allah nurse, yeah, look, what is it said no, who Tenzin and the Quran that we sent for it to be recited upon you slowly so you can comprehend it and reflect upon it. And indeed We descended upon Him with our will SubhanaHu wa Tada. That's the end of

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

suicide. It is the Quran is that book right there, nothing, nothing comes remotely close to the value of that book. Nothing does nothing in your life is going to be in any form or matter port as important and as significant to you as the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the point of Ramadan is that Ramadan takes away distractions allows us to focus on that book. We come here every night, what's the main purpose is that we listen to the Quran being recited, and we reflect and we contemplate and we take the practices of this majestic noble book, these words of Allah content, we try to incorporate them into our own lives. That's the point of all

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

This because once you fall in love with the Quran, you'll never fall out. And once you fall in love with the Quran, you will find your way always. And I think that's something worth sharing with you before we go first Surah continue to observe the concept I talked about yesterday regarding parking. Please don't park on Gainsborough we have we're going to try and have more ushers outside to help people park in sha Allah in front of Yonkers, because it's empty, there are other side rows on Gainsbourg parking there will cause us some problems and hamdulillah The only things that we were able to meet with the marshal today and things inshallah are going to be okay, but we have to

00:40:30 --> 00:40:35
