the shortest surah of the Quran are those that consist of three verses. And there are three such sources in the Quran, surah tala, Hassan surah, two knutsson and surah, two calcium, and out of the three of them, the one that is shortest in terms of words is Surah. We'll call them a surah that we are all very familiar with that we memorize that we read, perhaps even on a daily basis in our Salah he saw the role of us are familiar with. But despite the brevity of the surah and despite its concise number of words and verses, it is extremely important in its message because it deals with the fundamentals of our religion, but he deals with it in a way that perhaps some of us have never

00:01:49--> 00:02:29

really thought about before. A large xojo begins in the surah and he says Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in our Paulina Cal Coco, indeed we have given to you meaning to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alcova what is correct in Sahih Muslim on the authority of lscb Malik rhodiola one, he said that we all want sitting in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as we were sitting with him, there overcame the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam overcome him when revelation was being revealed to him, or his Salatu was Salam. He said, then after the revelation finished, he looked up and he smiled. So he said, O Messenger of Allah makes you smile. He said, For

00:02:29--> 00:03:09

indeed My Lord has given to me and co author. Do you know what our co author is? They say the line is messenger know best. He said, Well, colfo is a river that my Lord has promised to me in Jannah. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that from amongst the benefits of that river, is that people in the day of judgment from his ummah will be able to come and drink from it. Whosoever drinks from that river will never experience test again. And then the Prophet said, some Allah Allah will sell them but as I am, they're serving my alma giving them water from this pond. Then from amongst the people that will come will be people that I recognize from my oma. But the

00:03:09--> 00:03:47

angels will drive them away. So I will say they let them come for their from my oma and the angels will reply you don't know what they did to your religion, or what they innovated after you. This Hadith is a familiar Hadith that I think to most of us, but its message is extremely important, because the meaning of all co author is not just the river that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. The rivers we know from the narrations of the sinner is a river that is based in Geneva pollutes water will flow out of Jannah. And it will come into the land of gathering into another place where water will gather that is known as the home the pond of the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:47--> 00:04:23

alayhi wa sallam, and that is where the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will meet with their messenger Allah His salatu salam, that is the place of the Prophet Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the cups on the banks of the upon will be like the number of the stars in the sky. That is the one that if you drink from it, you will never experience thirst again and that is the upon that people are driven back from if they innovated in this religion in what is clicked the valley mammoth Timothy in the Hadith Ramadan Lebanon Mr. radi Allahu Allah Houma. He said the Prophet said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and co Theroux nahoon Phil Jana have Fatah whom in them

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

were Majora who are an adorable yeah put to Roboto okay abdominal misc. woman who Allah minahasa no abule domina theurge he said a co author is a river in Jenna. Its banks are made of gold and its bed is made of precious stones. Its soil the soil that you find from the water the soil, it is more frequent than musc its water is sweeter than honey whiter than pure snow. That river that Allah azza wa jal says in this kotlin the surah the name the name or the name after which the surah is given.

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

That river is only an example of what I'll call third is because they'll call for in the Arabic language means abundance. It means to be given a greater amount. And as Abdullah ambassador, the Allahu anhu has said Mr. Cyr of this verse, and many of the scholars that have co followed him in this, they said they're all co authors, every good, that was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The greatest of examples is the river that Allah will give to his prophets on Allah wa he will sell him on your piano, but as a co author is every good, so the Quran is from the culture, the abundance of God that Allah gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the sooner his formal co

00:05:38--> 00:06:16

author, the guidance that we have in our religion is all cultural, everything that you do as part of this religion, this very Salah, sitting in the masjid, listening to the hot metal jumar is from the coast are given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam everything that brings into your heart tranquility, and in a peace because you are worshipping Allah, coming closer to Allah being Anwar zildjian. It is from the co author that Allah gave to his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that meaning is more relevant meaning to me and you, because the co author that is given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is specifically for him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but by

00:06:16--> 00:06:51

extension is on my benefit from it. But that's something in your multi ama, but in order for you to attain that telco because the hadith of no shows that there are people from this oma that don't get to drink from the water. They don't get to be served by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they don't receive the honor of coming to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in order to achieve and attain that will co author you must take the alkota that Allah gave to you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind for me and you in this life? What is that author, that is every part of your religion, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave to

00:06:51--> 00:07:27

you. Then the Prophet Teller, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, towards the end of his life that I have left amongst you two things, so long as you hold on to them, you will never go astray, the Book of Allah and my son, that is a co author. So everything that you do that your religion tells you to do, everything that you stay away from the your religion tells you to stay away from, when you do it with a sense of loss of sincerity and following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is all Calvin. And that is where Lara xojo then goes on to say in the second verse of the surah, four sunnyrock become one how Allah azza wa jal says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you've

00:07:27--> 00:08:06

already attained alcova. But that's not enough. He says, then pray to your Lord and sacrifice for him. Because in order for you to attain that goodness, the goodness must meet two conditions. Those two conditions you see, in these two acts of worship more than perhaps any other of the acts of worship of Islam, in prayer and in sacrifice, number one, that you must have lost sincerity in your worship. And number two, that the act of worship must be in accordance to the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If you hold on to those two, then you will have insha Allah tala, not only the abundance they'll call for in this life, but more importantly that reward a

00:08:06--> 00:08:47

normal piano. Those people in the hadith of enniscorthy along one will come and are driven away, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognizes them, he calls out to them, he uses the wedding Almighty, they are from my oma. And that is scription that ascribing of them being from the oma is one of honor given to the people who follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but it is negated from them. The honor is removed from them, because they didn't follow it through because they didn't complete the conditions that you need in order to attain a co author. And so Alonzo Joel concludes the solo and he says in the Shan e alcohol uptown, the one who curses you, meaning the Prophet

00:08:47--> 00:09:23

sallallahu alayhi. wasallam is the one who is cut off, cut off from all good from receiving guidance from receiving the reward that alarms the origin and the mercy and forgiveness that Allah gives to those who follow that guidance. And in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam those people are his enemies. Those people are the ones who cursed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who attacked him who are pressed him who persecuted him and his followers or use Allah to send him but after his death, it is anyone who curses who turns away from his Sunnah from his teachings, who thinks that they have a better form of abundance and guidance than the one left by the Prophet

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

salallahu alayhi wasallam those people also cut off because they have turned away and they're turning away is the type of cursing is a type of looking down and diminishing the status of something when you turn away from guidance when you turn away from the one to whom the guidance was given sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that also is something which causes you to be cut off. This surah therefore encapsulates for us the most important principles of our religion, three verses and Alonzo just gives to you, Islam. In order for you to attain the reward of the next life. You must take the path in this life and that

00:10:00--> 00:10:29

Practice by following a large soldier by obeying a large soldier worshiping him with sincerity. And by following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If you do that, then from the greatest honors that you will receive my last permission on the Day of Judgment is that a large soldier wouldn't allow you to come and to see that river that is a co author and before that the pond of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mila is granted honor to us, and our parents and our families. were sort of learning to be the Mohammed were the early or soften the edge rain

00:10:41--> 00:11:18

spillover from the de la salatu salam ala rasulillah Who on earth he was talking to gauge Marina mobarak. The Companions would often ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or messenger of Allah will will you meet you on your monthly ama? And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some narrations. He said to them, that the piece that we will meet is that the hope is that my pond, that is the place where the profits are low, and he will sell them or wait for his oma to attain the Ronna is from the greatest of owners of the profits on allow the person can receive on the Day of Judgment. And that is why it was from the practice of the early Muslims, that they would make dua

00:11:18--> 00:11:55

for this, that they would ask Allah azza wa jal to bestow upon them that blessing of being able to take from the hold and the pond of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what is clicked in the Muslim they view my Mohammed and I saw the Allah one. This is many years after that first heavy that we generated the beginning of the hot but this is many years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes by, passes away. And as rhodiola when, when he's an old man, someone came to him and he said that there are people who deny that there are normal piano there is such a thing called the house or the co author. They deny that there's such a thing that as the person being able

00:11:55--> 00:12:32

to go there and drink from the water, and it's what the Allahu replied, and he said that had I been present when they were there. I would have set them straight. They said, Oh Anis, did you hear the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speak about this? He said, Yes, I heard it with my own two ears. But more than that, I remember the old women of Medina, after they would finish their prayers. One of the odds that they will often make is that they are the Roman law allow us to come to the hold of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who are the old women of Medina, that enniscorthy Allah one is speaking about, if Anna's rhodiola one is from the younger companions, and he says the old women

00:12:32--> 00:13:10

of Medina when I was young, I remember them, who are they, other than the wives of the companions, and the mothers of the companions, and the Sisters of the companions, or the Allahu anhu, much married, I remember these old women after they would finish their Salas, one of the doors that they would make is that they would ask Allah zildjian, for his for the ability to come to the home of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is to do, that we have neglected to do, that we don't often make, but to understand the meaning of that door, how that door is achieved and attained is more important to take the principle of the Sunnah and to apply the surah. And to apply it is more important but to

00:13:10--> 00:13:44

make that dua is also something that we should be doing. We ask Allah azza wa jal on this specific day of Jaguar that he blesses us and our families to be from amongst those who will come to the pawn of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that Allah honors Aspire line was to be served by the hand of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we are from amongst those who will drink from its water and have experienced test again, let's go larger that he shows his mercy, blessings and forgiveness upon us, our families and our communities and that a large zildjian makes affairs easy for us to handle because I'm on your cell phone, Mr. Rahman Allah mousseline on hamdu Lillahi Rabbil
