smilla rahmanir rahim Allah

00:00:16--> 00:00:38

when I was a Billahi min surely unforeseen I won't see Dr. Molina Miyagi Hello Fernando de la mejor De La Hoya Chateau a la la la la hora de la sharika wash. Mohammed Abu hora pseudo Sophia who will felino sallallahu wasallam. Our currently we're on early he will suck up he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira.

00:00:40--> 00:01:18

Just to reiterate what our brother means and said at the beginning, I still see a lot of people sitting at the back. So if you can please move forward. It is authentically narrated on our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that once he was giving a lecture in the nabawi, and you know, the circle of people just like the circle of people around him, and three men entered into the masjid one of them found a space at the front. So he made his way to the front, and he sat down. The second one sat at the back. And the third one stood for a short while and then he left. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finished his lecture and he said, shall I not inform you about these

00:01:18--> 00:02:01

three people that we just saw? So they said, Yes, or messenger of Allah. He said, As for the first one who came, and he found space in the group, and he sat at the front, when he came and he faced Allah so Allah faced him up Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, what are they? He came in, he faced Allah so Allah faced him. And as for the second one who sat at the back, then he was shy, so Allah was shy from him. And as for the third one who stood and then he left, then he turned away from Allah, so Allah turned away from him. So this is not just specific to the gatherings of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But it is for every single gathering of knowledge. Those people who come

00:02:01--> 00:02:35

close from the virtues of this gathering of knowledge is that you're facing Allah so Allah will face you. And that's why you see that the students have knowledge. When you go to places like the mustard Haram in Mecca and Medina, they're sitting so close to the chef, because it's from the etiquettes of the suit of knowledge that they can't even see him. They're sitting so close to him, that they can't even see his face. Because when they look up, all they can see is his needs. This is how close the companions would come to the Prophet son alone, where are they he will sell them. I mean, gibreel Ali Salaam came to sit with the prophets of Solomon, they're very long, famous Hadith which is under

00:02:35--> 00:03:12

Buhari, and in the 40 hadith of Noah, we, he sat so close, so sack so close to him, that his knees were touching his knees, this is how close he was sitting. And that is from the etiquettes of knowledge. And the people who sit at the back, then they're shy of this knowledge. So Allah is shy from the meaning that they will benefit very little, and gain very small virtues from this gathering. And as for the one who turns away, he resists really far back, then he has turned away from Allah, so Allah will turn away from him. And so from the etiquettes of knowledge is to come close together to show that you're not arrogant, have this knowledge so that you're not, you know,

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

proud of this knowledge show that you that you want to gain this knowledge. So you come close, just as you would go close to someone that was giving you a gift from the gifts of the dunya. And no doubt the law are greater and better.

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

So, today's lecture is lessons from Surah, Al Fatiha and Surah Fatiha is the greatest surah of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So great in fact that every single record of every single prayer that we pray, comprises of this Surah Surah Al Fatiha every single prayer, whether it's the bigotry, prayers, whether it's the optional prayers, whether it's the prayer of janazah, the funeral prayer, whether it's the prayer of rain Salatin is the spa the prayer of fear Salah to have the prayer of the eclipse law to preserve and conserve or any other prayer. Every single prayer must comprise of Surah Fatiha and anyone who doesn't recite Surah Fatiha in a single record of the prayer. Then by

00:04:09--> 00:04:50

agema of the scholars the prayer is null and void. There is no prayer for such a person. So to recite the surah is a pinnacle of our religion it is sorry It is a fundamental aspect of our religion. And when you look at the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam placed emphasis on certain sources of the Quran. So the Quran all of it is the guidance from Allah and all of it is a light from Allah subhana wa Taala it Even so, a larger version has chosen certain sutras and he has given them certain precedence over other sources of the Quran. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would focus on certain

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

sources, and he would give them precedents as well. Because these are the sources that we need to focus on. These are the parts of the Quran that we

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

need to study and understand to contemplate and ponder over. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once came to obey bluecat rhodiola one and he said, obey, what is the greatest single verse in the Quran? The greatest single verse au is in Viki tabula he album, what is the greatest verse in the book of Allah? And he replied, Allah and His messenger and all best. So again, he repeated Omar obey, which of the verses of the Quran is the greatest? And so he replied, and he said, it is Allahu La ilaha illa

00:05:34--> 00:06:14

ayatul kursi and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam struck him on his chest and he said, may Allah bless you and endow you with knowledge. So in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is emphasizing ayatul kursi to us, showing us its virtues, its benefits, but what is the point of its knowing that it isn't the greatest verse of the Quran? If none of us can even understand that verse? Very few of us know which translation let alone have pondered over its deep meanings. Likewise with Soraka lifeless ask the vast majority of the Muslims they will tell you that surah to lifeless equals a third of the Quran equals a third of the puranam we all know the

00:06:14--> 00:06:35

different Hadith concerning this. But how many of us then have thoughts of Pamela four verses equals a third of the Quran? Surely this is a surah that we should study that we should understand that we should dissect and analyze so that we can truly understand the message that Allah wants us to receive from four verses that equals a third of the Quran.

00:06:36--> 00:07:17

This is how the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach his companions. This is the benefit of having these types of Hadith. So you know that from all of these 114 sources of the Quran, there are certain sources that we need to study and analyze. First, we need to pay attention to them because there are certain messages that allow wants us to gain and then we move on to other parts of the Quran. Surah Taka is a surah we recite every single Friday. Now what is the sort of what is the message why recite to every single Friday? What's the benefit? Why this sort of a no other sort of the Quran? Surah mulk is a surah we recite every night before we go to sleep? Yeah, what is the

00:07:17--> 00:07:52

benefit of this sort of why this surah why not another surah of the Quran? What is the message that Allah wants to remind us of every single night. So likewise, we have Surah Al Fatiha, the greatest surah of the Quran, known as the mother of the Quran, known as several masani, the seven oft repeated verses of the Quran. This is the Surah Surah Fatiha and the Surah Al Fatiha has many, many different virtues, but from the greatest of his virtues, is that not only is it a guidance and a light, but it is also a

00:07:54--> 00:08:39

Quran all of it is a cure. As Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you Hannah's for the job at como river to me, Robbie Kuma, Shiva, Lima, pseudo Buddha, meaning all mankind that has come to you from your Lord, a reminder, and the cure for that which is in the hearts and a guide, and a mercy for all of the believers. So the forum generally comprises of these four things, a reminder, so we recite the Quran to remind ourselves of the hunted and the harem of Hellfire and paradise of the punishments of Allah and the blessings of Allah. And we recite the Quran as a cure. Because the Koran is the cure of all of the diseases of the heart, and there is a cure for the physical ailments

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

of the body.

00:08:41--> 00:09:22

And that doesn't mean by the way that everyone that recites to put on will take benefit from this No. Because there's even opium Rahim Allah says that the Quran is a medicine and a cure, like other medicines and cures. And not every medicine that you gain, or that you take will always cure you. Sometimes you're ill, and your doctor will prescribe you a medicine, but because it's not the right dosage, or because he has understood the exact problem that you face, or because the medicine isn't the correct medicine that is applied to this case, it doesn't have much benefit, or its benefit may be very little, or he may even do more harm in some cases. So that are on the book of Allah azza wa

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

jal is the cure, but because we don't apply it properly, and because we don't know how to use this cure upon our ailments, very few people receive the benefits of the Quran. And so the problem is in the book of Allah azza wa jal, the problem is with us. So that's the second thing that the Quran does, it is a cure. Number three, it is a guide, a guide for every single person, a guide for all of humankind. And number four, it is a source of mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. A large village it says in another verse de la Vina Amano, Buddha Shiva say it is for those who believe

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

guidance and a cure for those who believe. So it's not just something which you can give to any person, and it will benefit them. Not always. Sometimes it doesn't work like that. But rather the art is a cure for those who are strong in a man, those who place their trust in Allah. Those who know that harm and benefit only comes from Allah, life and death only comes from Allah. Allah is the Creator and he is the provider. He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. And he is the one who controls everything. So when they recite the Quran, they have the Eman and they have that trust in Allah. And they have that certainty in the law. And with such strong Eman, then the Koran is very

00:10:42--> 00:11:24

effective. But if a person just recited the Quran, because someone told him how you should read Surah Fatiha, they don't help you. He doesn't know what surah to Fatiha is doesn't understand Surah Fatiha he doesn't have any children. he recites it is recite to me like you would read a book, then such a person will find very little benefit from reciting that surah. In the Quran, Allah none of the verse of the Quran Allah azza wa jal says one who knows Zulu mineral or Ani Maharshi thought What? Meaning well is equal volume in the illa fissara, in Surah, to Islam, that we have revealed from the Quran that which is the cure that which is the cure, and that which is a source of mercy

00:11:24--> 00:12:09

for the believers. And as for the oppressors, they will only increase in their loss. So the arm is sometimes so powerful, that the person who is reciting the Quran, if they have true Eman, and they have true trust in Allah, and true certainty in the promise of Allah, then then that person reciting the Quran can overcome any disease that any ailment at any problem by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So strong is the Quran, that if a Muslim who has that strong Eman and trust in certainty in Allah was to recite the Quran, even over a non Muslim who's a disbeliever in Allah, he's a Muslim, but because of the one reciting and is a man in a law, it can even have an effect on

00:12:09--> 00:12:49

that person. This is how powerful the speech of a large religion is. But it requires someone who is equally able to hold the Koran and wield the Quran as a cure is not something which you can just achieve if you read the once in a lifetime. Or just when you're ill when you come and you attach yourself to the Quran. But the Quran If a person's heart is illuminated with the Quran, they wake up and they read the Quran before they go to sleep. They read the Quran, whenever they're able to read the Quran, they recite the Quran, such a person who is attached to the Quran, and they understand the Koran. And they ponder over the Quran and they cry at the recitation of the Quran, and they

00:12:49--> 00:13:28

implement the teachings of the Quran. They follow. It's halal and it's Haram. Such a person has one of the most powerful weapons, one of the most powerful weapons that anyone can have. And that's why when the companions came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they said concerning one of those companions, that every single prayer for every single record, that companion if you recited the Quran, he would always conclude by reciting surah to the floss always, doesn't matter what part of the Quran his reciting, he would always end in reciting surah. Talia class, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him what made you do this? He said, because it is a surah that

00:13:28--> 00:14:11

reminds me of Allah, and for my love of Allah I recited. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Tell him, tell him, let him know that Allah loves him as well. If that was the way that we treated the Koran, then for such a person, the Koran is such an amazing weapon. Not only is it a reminder, not only is a cure, it is a guidance. It is a mercy, every single issue that a person has they recite the Quran, and then the life becomes much easier. their sorrows and their worries, their sadness, all of it will dissipate when it comes into contact with the verses of the Quran. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he would feel sad, and he had worries, and

00:14:11--> 00:14:54

there were things that saddened him, what would he do? He would go and he would pray. And what is one of the major components of the prayer, the recitation of the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Often in his knuffle prayers in his optional prayers, his recitation would be very, very long, he will recite Baccarat, another imraan and an ISA and an maoi. That He will teach he will choose the longest sources of the Koran to recite within the prayer. Why because the Quran for such a person is a pure, it is a solace. It brings tranquility, Allah directly law he taught my job, indeed, with a remembrance of Allah do hearts find tranquility and the greatest remembrance of Allah

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

is the Quran. It is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why it's authentically

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

reported, and I'm delighted Miss rhodiola one that he said, take the two cures and use them, the Oran and honey, the poor and the book of Allah and honey. In both of them, there is a cure for all of our problems. The Quran is a cure not only for the body, but it is a cure for the hearts. And this is something which we need to cure more than our bodies, the diseases and ailments that we face within our hearts. Any problem that comes upon a person, any difficulties that come upon a person, it will be down due to their sins, and it will be due to some part to their sins, and to the diseases of their heart. So one of the ways to overcome this, and one of the ways to gain the

00:15:42--> 00:15:57

systems of Allah and His mercy when these trials afflict us is to attach ourselves to the Quran. And when the heart is enlightened and illuminated by the Koran, then these distresses and these worries will dissipate in its advance.

00:15:58--> 00:16:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as is authentically reported, where I'm delighted with our bustle of the Allahu anhu woman in the Hadith in Sahih Muslim, he says about the Allahu anhu man that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one sitting in the company of gibreel alayhis salam, and he heard a sound from above him from the heavens. So he looked up. And gibreel Allah has said and said to him, indeed, that is the sound of a door from the heaven that has been opened. It has never been opened before this day. Never before has this door being opened before today. And then the profits are the low, where are they He will send them so another angel descending

00:16:35--> 00:17:17

antibiotic is Salam said to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Indeed, this is an angel that is descending today. He has never descended before this day, through a door that has never opened before, and an angel that has never descended before. And the angel came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa. And he said, Give glad tidings give glad tidings, or have glad tidings of the two lights that you have been given, have glad tidings of the two lights that you have been given Surah Al Fatiha and the final verses of Surah Baqarah. You will not recite them except that Allah will reward you for its recitation, and He will give you that which you asked for meaning within those verses

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

that the hours that you make, allow will respond to them. So this Surah Al Fatiha, a surah that we take for granted a sutra that we recite so much that most of us don't even think twice about it. One of the first sources that we teach our children, one of the first sources that we learn, it is so great in the sight of Allah azza wa jal that our door from the heaven was open. There has never been opened before. And an angel descended just with this message that has never descended before. That the light of the origin from the light that Allah has given this oma is Surah Al Fatiha and the final verses of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:17:55--> 00:18:35

Another Hadith on the authority of Abu huraira rhodiola one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once came out and he went to obey blue carb rhodiola one and often when you talk about verses of the Quran and the sutras of the Quran, and the virtues of the Quran, you will find the name of this companion mentioned, obey immunocap Abu rhodiola. One was one of the greatest scholars of Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there are four companions that you should learn the Quran from this is what he told the Companions for that you should learn the Quran from and one of them was obey evolocumab or the long run a companion from the unsung he was the companion that the

00:18:35--> 00:19:13

prophets of Salaam would go to. When the Quran was revealed to him, he would go and he would recite it to him, and obey would write down and often he would go and he would say, Allah has ordered me to recite the Quran to you. and obey would say has a lot taken my name from above the seven heavens and the prophets of Salaam would say yes, this was the status of we'll be able to care about your loved one. So often when speaking about these virtues, and speaking about these issues, the prophets or Salaam would seek out OBE blokart rhodiola. One. So the professor sentiment to find obey. And he found that he was praying. So he said, obey come to me.

00:19:14--> 00:19:58

But obey was in prayer. So he continued to pray and he hasten finishing his prayer and the prophets I send them left him. So then Obi Wan Kenobi came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said a Salam or Aleikum, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, he said, what are they call Mr. Ram, obey. Why didn't you come to me when I called you? And so obey replied, I was in prayer. I was praying. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Have you not heard from that which Allah has revealed to me is to G boo lillahi wa Soni, either the accompaniment, he can respond and hasten in responding to Allah and His Messenger, when they call you to that which will

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

give you life

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

Meaning he seemed to obey, you should have cut off your prayer and come to me because Allah says when Allah and His Prophet call you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hasten in responding to them. And this is for the knuffle prayers, just as if a person is praying enough for prayer, and the elderly parents call them it is allowed for them to stop their prayer and go to tend to their needs, because of the right that they have in Islam, and the prophets of Salaam has an even greater right, so obey you should have come to me. So obey said, I seek the forgiveness of Allah and I will never do it again. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, do you know what is greater than all

00:20:40--> 00:21:27

of the Torah and the Injeel? The the Bible and the Psalms, and the Koran? What part what has been given to me what has been revealed to me that is greater than the Torah, and the Bible and the Psalms and the Koran? And so he replied, I don't know messenger of Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, what do you recite in every single prayer? And so he replied, I recite Surah Fatiha, the mother of the Quran, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by the one whose hand my soul is in, there is not in the Torah, nor in the Bible, Psalms nor in the Quran, anything like Surah Fatiha

00:21:28--> 00:22:08

anything like Surah Fatiha. So not only in the previous books of the previous prophets, the Torah that was given to Musa and the and the Bible that was given Teresa and the Psalms that were given to that woman and the Quran as well. There is nothing similar to Surah Fatiha, this is the status of Surah Al Fatiha in this religion and authority of Anna signo Malika de la grande the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once out on a journey, and he descended from his writing beast and he saw a man next to him he said to him, which part of the Quran is best, which is the greatest part of the Quran? And the man said, I don't know. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:22:08--> 00:22:49

it is Oracle Fatiha. Not only that, but it is reported runnable sorry, they know how to do the long run. There are a group of the companions who wants traveling. And they came and they descended in a village. And whilst in that village, a person came to them and they said that the leader of this village has been stung by an insect. And they have tried different types of medicines and so on, but nothing will benefit him. So do you mean the companions Do you have something which you can give to him. And so one of the companions stood above sorry, the narrator of this Hadith, he says one of the last one, we didn't know that this man was a healer, that he knew how to do raffia that he knew how

00:22:49--> 00:23:33

to kill someone. But he stood up and he went, and he asked them in return for something that if he did work, they would give him something in return. So they agreed that they would give him 30 sheep 30 sheep as payment. And so he recited over this man, the leader of the village, and he was cured. And so they gave him 30 sheep and they gave him milk to drink for him and his fellow companions, those companions, they said, What did you resign over him? He said, I didn't do anything other than recite surah, two Fatty, that's all I recited. And remember when I said that if a person that has the Koran and uses the Quran is so strong in a man that he will even have an impact upon a

00:23:33--> 00:23:44

disbeliever. That person was a mushfiqur dispute Eva, even so because of the one using the puranam is strong Eman. It was able to benefit even the non Muslim.

00:23:45--> 00:24:03

And so they set to this companion don't do anything with the sheep until we go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and mentioned what took place. So they came to the prophet SAW Selim and they told him about this. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, How did he know that it was a cure?

00:24:04--> 00:24:48

Take the sheep and split it divided amongst you and give me a share as well. So not only did the profit center affirm what they did, he asked for a share of it as well. And this is because Surah Al Fatiha especially, is something so powerful, that it is one of the few places of the Quran, where it is authentically reported from our Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam that when we recite the surah in our prayer, we have a conversation with a lot of zildjian Alon responds to Soraka Fatiha for every single verse that you recite. Allah will respond to you on the authority of Abu hooray rhodiola one in a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:24:48--> 00:24:56

sallam said, Whosoever doesn't recite Surah Al Fatiha in the prayer when his prayer is incomplete, incomplete, incomplete

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

and so they said to Abu hurayrah our

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

Ahora This is the students are saying oh boo hooray wrong. What if a person is behind the Imam in a prayer? And the Imam is reciting should we recite behind him? He replied, Yes, but recite silently. For I heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, I heard him say that Allah azzawajal himself says in the Hadith and footsy, that I have divided the prayer between me and my servant into two,

00:25:28--> 00:25:46

between me and my sermon, it is into two parts. So when my servant says Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen. All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, I reply, and I say, hammy, the hamadani or hamadani Abdi, my servant has praised me.

00:25:47--> 00:26:29

And then when he says a Rahman Rahim, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, I respond and if not earlier, Abdi, my servant has praised me. And then when he says Maliki army team, Owner of the Day of Judgment, Allah says Madani Abdi, my servant has glorified me. And then when he says he Yata Buddha canister in you Oh, allow alone do you worship a new Allah alone do we seek help of than a law says how the benei will be in our rd when they are the my son, this is between me and my servant, and for my servant is that which he asks. And then when a person says Indira Serato must have been Sirocco Levine and I'm telling him

00:26:30--> 00:27:15

he will abolish bollin Oh Allah Guide us to the straight path, the path that you have favored, not the path of those that whose anger your anger is upon them, or those who have been misguided and led astray. Then a large religion says this is for my servant and for my servant is that which he asks. This is one of the few parts of the Quran where it is authentically reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a person has a direct conversation with Allah. And the prayer is a conversation with Allah. When you make this to our because Surah Fatiha in a way is that as well. Because after you praise Allah azza wa jal in the first three verses, you make dua, you ask

00:27:15--> 00:27:58

Allah for his help, and you ask Allah for his guidance and for his favors, and for his blessings. And this is why the scholars of Islam have said that the first three verses of Surah Baqarah, old plays of a large surgeon, and the last three verses from Indian astronomers talking till the end of for the sleep so the first three or four Allah prays for Allah and the last three or four the sleeve, that you may ask for the middle verse, verse number four, er cannot Buddha canister in then this is partly for Allah and partly for the slave. Because Allah says this is between me and my slave and for my slave is that which he asks, well, it's for the last three verses, Allah says, This

00:27:58--> 00:28:41

is for my slave, and for him is that which he asks. And so Surah Fatiha is so powerful that for every single record of every single prayer, when you recite Surah Fatiha, Allah is having a conversation with you. And so if a person was to have control, and they will really to call upon Allah azza wa jal, and they were to say, and recite the surah, with that type of attentiveness, and love and trust in Allah and sincerity for Allah and that type of Eman and certainty in Allah, and they asked Allah for his guidance and for his favours and for his blessings. And they say, Oh Allah, are you alone? Do you worship you alone? Do we seek assistance out there? Is there anything in the

00:28:41--> 00:29:27

heavens and the earth that can come and fight such a such a surah? Is there anything that can oppose the surah of the Quran, if a person recites it in such a manner, this is the power of Salatu Fatiha. So, Larissa Virgil has revealed these seven verses known as the seven of repeated verses. Allah subhana wa Taala says al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds we begin the Quran we begin our prayer by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah azza wa jal praises himself at the beginnings of certain souls, and at the ends of certain souls and sometimes in the middle of a surah as well. And when the people of gender enter into gender, then

00:29:27--> 00:30:00

the final call will be our home. And in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen the final call will be All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds so everything that a person does revolves around pleasing Allah azza wa jal remembering Allah subhana wa Taala, glorifying Allah azza wa jal, this is the meaning of hemp oil, hemp does not just pleasing Allah, because in our lives, we often praise other people. You praise someone for the new clones, or for the new car that they have or the new house. The

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

Bro, you praise them because they did well in the exams or the new job that they have, or whatever the issue is, we often praise one another. But when it comes to hemp for the sake of a larger agenda than this is a different type of praise. Because Hamed for Allah is not only praised, but it must have two additional emotions. Number one is love. And number two is glorification. so that it becomes an act of worship. When we praise Allah, we do it out of love for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we do it out of glorification for Allah, it is an act of worship, we humble ourselves, before our loads of Hana who were to Hana, we humble ourselves in front of a large region, and we praised

00:30:41--> 00:31:25

him subhanho wa Taala. Because nothing in the heavens and the earth deserves praise as Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves praise. And then not only that, but we describe a large region with the most majestic and befitting of titles for his Rabbil aalameen. He is the Lord of the worlds and what does all Lord mean? In the Arabic language or Lord doesn't just mean the one who owns something, but it means the one who creates and the one who owns and the one who controls because a person can make something but not own it. And a person can own something, but not necessarily control it. But Allah azzawajal is perfect in every way. He is subhana wa Taala, with his most beautiful names and his

00:31:25--> 00:32:06

most lovely attributes, the owner of everything, and the creator of everything, and the one who controls everything. And if a person just understood this first verse of the Quran, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Why would they worship other than Allah? Why would they make to add to other than Allah? Why would they trust upon other than Allah? Why would they need to go to other than Allah, when Allah is the Creator, the owner and the controller, nothing in the heavens and the earth is outside of the control and the ownership and the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why it's reported that certain companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man was so

00:32:06--> 00:32:45

strong, and they understood this verse so well, that if one of them was to be riding on their horse, and their stick or their whip fell down, they wouldn't ask another person to give it to them. But they themselves would descend, and they would take it themselves. They wouldn't even ask other people to help them in such a trivial matter. Why? Because why do you have a need of others when you know that it is Allah, Who creates an owns and controls. And so a person's complete trust is in Allah. A person's complete Eman is in a law. If some harm comes to them, they know that it is from Allah and no one can remove it except from Allah except Allah. And if some benefit comes to you know

00:32:45--> 00:33:31

it is from Allah, so they should be grateful for this blessing, lest Allah should take it away. And so a person revolves around this remembrance disqualification this place of Allah azza wa jal for he is Robben Island in the owner, the creator and the controller of Ireland mean what is Ireland mean? The scholar said everything besides a lot is Ireland mean, everything other than a lot falls under this, the throne of Allah and the seas and the mountains and the heavens and the earth and gentlemen and our people, angels, everything, jinn mankind, everything falls under it, I mean, Allah controls everything. Allah owns everything. Allah is the one who created everything. And so Allah azza wa jal

00:33:31--> 00:34:13

is the one therefore, that deserves to be worshipped alone, sincerely, subhanho wa Taala. So when a person really understands this, and they recite this in their prayer, then Allah will respond and he will say Athena or Li Abdi, so my servant has praised me. And if a person was cited this verse understanding just some of what I've said, then truly, it would be praised for a lot. And that person reciting the verse in such a way will have such a powerful connection with the Lord subhanho wa Taala, that the man will increase, it will soar and when they were to make a drought and alone will respond to such a drought after such a place with such an attentive heart.

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

And so then we move on to the second verse, or Rahmanir Rahim, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, to have the great blessings of Allah azza wa jal, and two of his attributes of Hannah who were Tyler, mercy, one of them is a description, the other one is an action.

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

Man is a description of Allah. He is full of mercy subhanahu wa taala, as Allah says, Rama to see

00:34:44--> 00:35:00

that the mercy of Allah encompasses everything. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in that famous Hadith where that woman was looking for her child and she couldn't find him until finally she found him and then she held him so close. So the Prophet Muslim Central is coming.

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

Pennines Do you think that this woman will throw her child into the fire? They said no. And so the prophets of Salaam said low low, or Hammurabi rebelled the human heavy BYOD ha, Indeed, Allah has more mercy for his creation for his servants than this one does for her child. This is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it is that mercy that we trust in that Allah azzawajal will shower us with this mercy, that he will forgive us for our sins, that he will accept our Toba and our repentance within Allahu taala. And so Allah xojo is the one full of mercy. so merciful is he subhana wa Taala that his mercy is divided into 100 parts 99 years kept with him for your multi ama,

00:35:46--> 00:36:29

and one he has sent upon this earth. And it is because of that one portion of mercy that even the animal will have mercy towards his own child. The animal will have mercy towards his own child, the animal will trample upon his child. You can see these documentaries of lions and tigers, the most fierce of predators, and they come and they hold their cubs within their mouths. They take them by the mouth. And if anyone else wants to come in the grip of a tiger or lion, it will take off its neck. But with his child, it is playing. It is showing mercy. It picks it up in its jaws in a very easy way that is not even harmed. And he places it down. Who makes such a ferocious predator Have

00:36:29--> 00:37:15

mercy towards its own cup? It is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if this is the mercy of Allah azza wa jal various given to the Muslims that are Muslims, the animals, the plants, the trees, everything in this dunya Then what about the 99 pots of mercy that Allah has kept for himself? That is a Rahim, the Most Merciful, the mercy that Allah will give on normal piano to the believers. To the extent that not even a person with a mustard seed of weight will remain of Eman will remain in the fire of how not even a person with a mustard seed of weight so long as they have that mustard seed of weight than a large region will eventually take them out of the fire of home and enter them into gender.

00:37:16--> 00:38:05

This is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala R Rahman r Rahim. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. And then a lot of xojo says, if not earlier, D my servant has praised me again. He has praised me by saying that I am the most Gracious, the Most Merciful. And then he is suparna what Allah Maliki Yeoman Dean, Owner of the Day of Judgment owner of Yama, Yama, and no doubt Allah is the owner of the dunya as well. But in the dunya there are many other things and people who claim to own the dunya many people who consider themselves to be leaders and despots and tyrants and Pharaohs and so on. But on Yeoman, Yama, no one will have the audacity to make such a claim that on that day,

00:38:05--> 00:38:39

it will belong solely to Allah. No one else will be able to rival this claim of Allah. Allah will say on your one Yama Lima in Molko Leone, to whom this Dominion belong on this day and no one will respond. So Allah will say himself lilla Hill, Wahidullah Hall, it belongs to a lot of the one the most powerful, no one will respond on that day. The Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam said that Allah will roll up the heavens and the earth. And then he will say Anil Malik Anil Jabbar, a Namu. Luca,

00:38:41--> 00:39:24

I am the king on this day, I am the most powerful on this day, where are the kings of the dunya. And who will stand to face a lot on that day, who will even have the permission to speak in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah is the Owner of the Day of Judgment. It is in his hands alone, who enters into Jenna and who goes into the fire. It is his hands alone, those people who will be rewarded and those people who will be punished, even the fire of how will have no choice in this. But rather a lot of zoa gentle will continue to throw people into the fire of home and the fire of HUD will not complain. He won't say enough enough until Allah allows it to do so. But we'll see to

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

tell him tell it, how are you full? And he will say help me muzzin Are there any more to come? Until as the profits are low? Where are they he will still mention Allah will place his foot over the fire and then it will shrink in and of itself. And then it will say a pot in pot enough enough over law and then it will have no more because Allah will decree that there is no one more to enter into the fire of how this is the Owner of the Day of Judgment. The shade on that day is the one that a lot of shade. And water on that day will be the one that Allah allows water to reach and into

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

session on that day will be for those that Allah is pleased with an agenda and the pleasure of Allah on that day for those people that have earned that pleasure of Allah and have an agenda with the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa tada Allah. So Allah mentions that he's a Rahmani Raheem, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. But just so in case that people don't go to one extreme of thinking that a lot is so merciful, that it will never punish anyone. Allah says Maliki only been, but he's also the ruler, and the king and the owner of Yeoman piano. He is the one that we should fear subhanho wa Taala. He is the one that we should be afraid of. He is the one that we should employ

00:40:41--> 00:40:53

His mercy and seek His forgiveness and make Toba to because it is a law that controls everything in this life, and in the next, and then the person says he can do what he can

00:40:54--> 00:41:41

to you, Oh Allah, you owe a lot alone do we worship a new Oh Allah alone do we seek assistance of after praising Allah in three verses and opening this door of praising Allah subhana wa Taala we make the submission of the hip, the submission of tawheed of worshiping Allah alone, Oh Allah, there is no one else that we worship. Not only that, but there is no one else that we seek assistance of. We only seek assistance of Allah azzawajal it is a law that benefits and harms and it's a law that will give us children and they will find this a spouse. It is a law that provides and gives us wealth and gives us a job. It is a law that we seek assistance from alone subhanahu wa taala. And so

00:41:41--> 00:42:32

great is this verse that if no pain Rahim Allah wrote his famous book Medallia sternly Qin feminazi the Buddha canister in a four volume book, revolving around this one verse. four volumes, thick volumes revolving around this one verse, because this is the essence of our religion, though heed, worshiping Allah alone, to understand this verse took a look at him for six volumes. So I can't do it justice in a few minutes. This is how great this verse of the Quran is. So many benefits. Everything in this religion revolves around this one verse, worshiping Allah alone and seeking the systems of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, Indian or Serato, Mr. Pim, Allah guide us to the right

00:42:32--> 00:43:15

path, making the dua to Allah azza wa jal, and if a person was to say these verses, yada yada yada strain with that sincerity and that trust, and that belief in Allah, then Allah says, This is between me and my slave. And for my slave is that which he asks, If a person has true Eman, when they recite this verse, Then will such a person then go and make to our to a grave with such a person, then go and make the walk around the tomb with such a person then go and think that someone from amongst the living or the dead people can harm or benefit can give life and death. When with a man they recite this verse. And then with that same a man and your team and trust in Allah, they

00:43:15--> 00:43:33

make that drop overlock keep us on the straight path. Because there is only a law that can give us guidance, there is only a law. And if a law is not a famous favorites with his guidance, then we would be a string. And that's why a large student says Al Hamdulillah. He loved he had done all he had

00:43:35--> 00:44:15

to do Lola and Hayden along from that which we please allow when we say Alhamdulillah that same phrase with love and glorification. One of the reasons we say four is because it is a law that guided us and we would never have received that guidance. We're not for Allah, from the greatest Allah has bestowed upon us is that you are alive as a Muslim, that Allah has guided you to his religion. Not only that, but to the correct understanding of his religion. This is the greatest blessing of Allah azza wa jal, no matter what is happening in your life, no matter how many problems you may face, with your wealth, and your family, and your house, and your children and so on. No

00:44:15--> 00:44:57

blessing can ever compare to this blessing, no blessing, irrespective of how difficult things may be to you. Everything pales in comparison to this, that Allah gave you life as a Muslim, and he guided you to the straight path. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he gives us depth upon the straight path as well, and that he allows our our ending to be a true and good ending. Because for those people, Allah has prepared gender and an Yeoman Yama, it will not matter to you how difficult your life was in terms of your money, in terms of your health, in terms of your job in terms of your children, in terms of your wife or your husband in terms of the issues of the dunya so long as you

00:44:57--> 00:45:00

have perfected the surah and the meanings of

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

Sora and II have attached yourself to this poron than a normal piano, everything else will be irrelevant, nothing else will matter. Because it will be based upon this a man that Allah insha Allah will entrust into gender. And so we ask Allah that He gives us guidance to the straight path in DNS shiratama stop him. This is the Straight Path of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once for his companions, who drew a straight line. And then he drew lines to the right and the left. And he said, this straight line is the path of Allah. This is the path of Allah, the straight path that leads you to gender. And these other paths have a shape and a devil at the head

00:45:40--> 00:46:15

of them calling to the left and the right paths that lead to the file paths that lead away from the Straight Path of Allah. And then he recited the verse of the Quran, one had a zero teamster payment for tiberiu. Well at the tabular symbol for the federal law, public and civilian, this is the Straight Path of Allah, so follow it, and do not follow the other paths less, they should take you away from this one true path. And so every single record of every single prayer, we make the strong of Allah Guide us to the straight path, Scirocco Lavina, and

00:46:16--> 00:46:47

not just any path, but the path that you have blessed and favored. The people who tread upon this path are the people that Allah has blessed and favored. They're not just any normal people. And so it is from the greatest blessings of Allah, that from the billions of billions of people that have ever lived from the time of Adam alayhis salam, until the people that will live until the end of time, Allah has chosen you as a minority, to be from amongst those people that tread upon that straight path.

00:46:48--> 00:47:28

And so let no one ever complain that Allah doesn't bless us, that we don't have any blessings of Allah, that Allah doesn't love us that Allah doesn't want good for us. The fact that you are a Muslim, that you're following the Quran and the Sunnah, that you're on the straight path is sufficient proof that Allah loves you, even if nothing else in the dunya were to come to you. This in and of itself is sufficient love. Because as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the dunya this world and everything within it, everything, its goal is to this time and everything within it, in the sight of Allah, it is less than the wind of a mosquito, the winner of a mosquito

00:47:28--> 00:48:09

is equal to the dunya and everything in it in the sight of Allah. And I don't have to tell you that the winner mosquito has no weight, it is worthless, you can't even see it. This is how small and insignificant eras This is the dunya to Allah. So when you don't receive the dunya, don't think that Allah doesn't love you, so long as he has given you guidance to the straight path. And if you have guidance to the straight path, then there is evidence and proof that Allah has guided you, no matter how in this human becoming. So no matter what disease you may have, no matter what afflictions you may have, so long as you have the Serato Mr. Team, the straight path, you are from the most pleasant

00:48:09--> 00:48:52

people that have ever lived, one of the most favored people that Allah has ever created. And so, it is the greatest favours of Allah that you have Serato Mr. Tim sirata, living in an entirely him Adobe, he will have darlin and you are not from amongst those people who incurred the wrath and anger of Allah. Nor are you from amongst those people who are the misguided. Those people who incurred The Wrath of Allah some of the scholars that have said, they are the Jews or they are like the Jews, those people who know the truth, yet they refuse to act in accordance to it. And the people of misguidance are like the questions those people who act but without knowledge, act based

00:48:52--> 00:49:31

upon ignorance. And so from the mercy of Allah and the blessings of Allah and the faithfulness of Allah, is that not only do you have the Serato Mr. Team, but you have the book of Allah, and you have the authentic son of our Prophet, son alone while he was silom. So when you worship Allah, you do it based upon knowledge. When you place a lot, it is based upon knowledge. When you come closer to Allah, it is based upon knowledge, when you seek the pleasure of Allah, it is based upon knowledge. And now that you have that knowledge, you act in accordance to it. So just from Surah Fatiha when we say we worship Allah alone, if a person was done to go and make to our to other than

00:49:31--> 00:49:59

Allah, then he is like, the hood. He is like the Jews, he has knowledge, but he's not acting in accordance to it. And if a person was to go and pray without knowing how to pray, then they are the misguided because the knowledge is there, but they're acting upon misguidance. So from the greatest Mercy of Allah azzawajal is not only that he made us Muslims. Not only that, he gave us guidance and he put us on the straight path, but then he gave us the knowledge. He gave us the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

So that we could keep firm upon the straight path. Though we could keep steadfast upon this tree path, so that we worship Allah based upon knowledge and the knowledge that we gain, we implement it into our daily lives. My dear brothers and sisters, this is probably the most abridged summarize the seal of Surah Fatiha you will ever hear. This is how much I have condensed Surat Al Fatiha for you. I've barely touched upon the surface of surah, two fattier, I have just skimmed over it. But imagine if you just took away what I said. And then apply this in every prayer. And in every Raka every single time you recite Surah Fatiha, you recited it knowing the meanings that we have just spoken

00:50:45--> 00:51:26

about. And you have in your heart, those same emotions, that same Eman, that same trust in a law that seems certainty and Allah that we spoke about, imagine the impact that he would have upon your life. Imagine how that would be a reminder for you and a cure and a guide and a mercy just from having this. But then as Muslims, we don't stop there. Because we want to come closer to Allah. And we want to learn more. So upon each and every single person is that they go back, and they study more about discrete Sora learn about the deep meanings of this song, learn about how a large Magellan wants us to come close to him reciting and using the surah. And when you truly understand

00:51:26--> 00:52:06

this surah you truly understand, and you've pondered and contemplated over the Sora then you will find a change in your lives. That is indescribable. No one can come and tell you what it's going to be in a physical manifestation. No one can see to that it's worth this much. Or it will look like this or do away this much. But it is something spiritual that Allah will give to you. And you will find this in sha Allah throughout your lives, with your family, with your friends, in your a bother in your worship, in the issues that you face in your lives. And if this is just one surah of the Quran, and Surah Fatiha is one of the shortest sources of the Quran. Then what about if we

00:52:06--> 00:52:45

understood the rest of the Quran in this way, as well? What is the Koran be a cure? Would we be able to go across any challenge in life just having before on any problem in life that we have one of the Koran be sufficient for us? And that's why when you look at the companions of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what are the Allahu anhu much mehreen you never ever find them going to the Prophet so seldom or rarely do you find them complaining? Rarely do you find them complaining? Because they had the Quran and they had the remembrance of Allah and they had worship of Allah and they knew the blessings of Allah upon them. And even when they did go and you will find in some

00:52:45--> 00:53:26

narrations that they said to the professor, send them we need this or we need that he would say to them go and remember Allah go and worship Allah go to Quran he said to Abdullah bin Amaro de la one Houma, he is a blessing man. If only he prayed more during the night, when his own daughter Fatima came saying that she was poor, that he needed servants. He said, Shall I tell you something which is better than this? Say so Pamela 33 times Alhamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar 33 times. This is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nurtured and educated his companions, his community, his community was one based upon the Quran, based upon the remembrance of Allah based upon seeking the

00:53:26--> 00:54:06

pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is something which we unfortunately have lost, and it is something which we need to regain. And the first step in that is by retaking or re kindling that connection with the book of Allah azza wa jal reconnecting with the Quran and the first place that you start is this very Surah Surah Al Fatiha as Allah subhana wa tada that enlightens our hearts with the Quran that he makes a guide for us and a cure and a mercy and he makes it so Panda hautala force a reminder as colossal panda what Allah that the Koran will come for us as an intercessor normally a Yama intercessor for us another instance or some

00:54:07--> 00:54:09

other early he was talking to each man
