One of the verses that inshallah to Allah is going to be recited this evening
is the verse in surah. To his right, which Allah is doing dimensions to have the greatest rights that people have or there are opponents. The first of those rights is the right of the creator and the Lord subhanaw taala. And the second is to do with the right of the creation, the most important people to us in the creation. Lara's origin says waka darbuka Allah taboo Allah yeah who have been worried any Santa. Your Lord has decreed and legislated that no one has the right to be worshipped except him and that you should be dutiful towards your parents. In malleable Ohana in the cult.

Makarov, Durham, Houma Kamara Bayani Sameera, and see, oh my Lord, show mercy towards them as they read me whilst I was young. This verse is an amazing verse, because Allah azza wa jal first of all, tells us his rights upon us. And that is that he alone is worthy of being worshipped this month of Ramadan was that you were doing of the good deeds, your Salah, your fasting, your sadaqa everything that you do
is an acknowledgement of the right of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada the sacrifices that you make from the morning when you wake up for the whole meal. Until this moment right now when you come to pray the Salah tutorial we and Russia, all of it is for the sake of Allah azza wa jal because we acknowledge and recognize that right of Allah subhanaw taala that the only reason we are upon this world. The only reason for our existence is that Allah azza wa jal created us for His worship Allah Allah subhana wa Tada. But then Allah azza wa jal tells us the greatest rite of the Creation upon us, and that is the rights of the parrot upon the child.
The rights of the parent are so great that even when those parents go against the first principle, you are still commanded to be good towards them. In surah Lachman, Allah azza wa jal tells us that if your parents from amongst those people who tell you urged you, encourage you to make sure with Allah azza wa jal, they don't obey them. Because you don't obey anyone when it comes to the disobedience of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. But Allah says also people who might be dunya roofer, to show you the level of honor that your parents deserve, even when they're telling you to do the worst of sins, something which will take you outside of the fold of Islam, it would give you eternity in the
hellfire. Allah says don't obey them in that has to be good to wants them, show kindness towards them. No one else has that right. No one asked us the degree of respect when they encouraging you to do what is the worst of sins upon the face of this earth. But that shows to the level of the parents in this religion. The man came in he traveled from a very far distance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam want you to give him the Pledge of Allegiance, wanted to give him a promise that he will stay with him and accompany him and fight alongside him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him who did you leave behind? where you came from in your land? Who did you leave
behind? He said left behind my elderly parents. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for fee him Africa had called back and make jihad with them instead. This is a man who wants to be a companion wants to spend his days and nights with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants to spend his time serving him honoring him memorizing his narrations. He said no go back and serve your parents instead. And that is the show's to the honor of this religion. The man theme to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complaining about his father, that he took some of his wealth without his permission, the father took some of the warmth of the sun without his permission. So he came to
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complaining about this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, until a man locally a beak you and all that belongs to you belongs to your father, after all that he did for you of sacrifice and your mother of sacrifice and the time and the effort that he did willingly out of love and kindness. Now you're complaining because you took some money from your bank account or you took some money without asking your permission? Allah subhanaw taala gives to the parents that weight status in this religion. And that is why from the greatest and most accessible paths towards Jannah is the path of the parents to honor them, to serve them,
especially when they reach old age and they become dependent upon you. They need your help, and they need your service as opposed to when they're young, and they're fit and they're able, maybe that level of independence gives them an ability to do their own affairs. But a time and moment comes upon many parents, when they now need your service. They need your help. They need your advice and they need your companionship and so they
Surely tells you that to serve them is one of the greatest tools towards gender. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prays that man will whistle army in Yemen, who lived during his time, but he never came even though he was a Muslim never came to Medina to meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one of those select few people, one of those category of people that lived in that time, but they're not companions, because they never saw the Prophet saw them. They never met him. They never sat with him. They never heard from him. But he believed in his time, the only thing that prevented him from coming was he had an elderly mother that he was serving an
elderly mother that he was looking after. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Companions that will resemble this man if he was to come to you, and make dua for you, Allah would answer his dua. And that is why when he eventually did come to Medina in the time of Ramadan, the Allah one, and when asked him to make dua for him and seek Allah's forgiveness for him, this month of Ramadan, that famous Hadith that we're familiar with when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood on the steps of the minbar. And on every step, he said, Amin, Amin, amin, and gibril Ali Salaam is making dua one of those diaries to do with this month, wherever the month of Ramadan comes
upon, and he leaves they don't have their sins forgiven, may Allah distance them. But one of the other ones that he also said, I mean to on that same occasion, comes to the parents, whoever reaches and sees their parents one or both of them in old age, and he still can't find Jana through them, that may Allah distance them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I mean to that. So this religion is an amazing religion gives to each and every single person their rights, and those rights aren't equal. Some people have greater rights upon you and some people have lesser rights, but from the greatest rights of the Creation upon you, is the rights of your parents. So if you're
from amongst those people who your parents are still living, and they're still alive, either one of them or both of them, then use that as a means to draw close to Allah azza wa jal in the means of good deeds. And if we're from amongst those people whose parents have passed away, then do good in terms of making dua for them and doing good deeds because they get a share of that reward either way, they have a right upon and to fulfill fulfill that right. It is one of the greatest deeds that you can perform. May Allah azza wa jal bless our parents, but Allah Allah have mercy upon them and shower His forgiveness upon them. And may Allah azza wa jal give those who are still living in good
health and let us all die upon Iman Baraka lofi
