In the handle de la hinomoto who want to stay you know who want to stop you want to also be let him in surely unforeseen. Our see tr Melina Maja de la, la la la la la la,

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

la la la hora de la. Why should Allah either halal Allahu Allahu la sharika Why should you know Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam I'm about to fit in the halal Hadith Nikita Bala tada

00:00:36--> 00:00:45

Mohammed and Salallahu alaihe alayhi wa sallam was Sharon Amorim data to her wakulla Desert in de de la vida tiempo de la la la la tintina.

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

All praise belongs to Allah the Most High we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we ask him that he forgives us. And we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead us astray. And whomsoever Allah leads us astray, no one can guide and a bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated and every religious innovation is a bidder.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

Everybody dies misguidance and every misguidance will be in Hellfire and bad.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala is the just the most just

00:01:40--> 00:01:50

an obvious justice, he does not only reward those who do good and punish those who do evil,

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

but his reward and his punishment are suitable to the act itself.

00:01:58--> 00:02:13

It fits the nature of the of the act itself. So the reward is of the nature of the good deed. And the punishment is of the nature of the bad deed. And this is the limitless justice of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:14--> 00:02:34

And this, you notice so many times in the Quran and so many times in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which prompted many commentators to repeat after these verses after these ahaadeeth Al Jazeera amin Jean Solomon, indeed, the re conference is of the nature of the Act.

00:02:35--> 00:02:40

The recompense reward or punishment is of the nature of the Act.

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

And consider here as an example, when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For the Quran, he of course,

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

remember me, and I will remember you

00:02:54--> 00:03:13

remembrance for remembrance, and in many of these ayat and Hadees today you'll notice that Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are using the same exact word for the act, and the reward or the punishment. Remember, and I will remember

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

if you want Allah subhanho wa Taala, the most tied to remember you with forgiveness and mercy. With acceptance of Do

00:03:26--> 00:03:45

you have to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala remember him with your heart, remember him on your tongue? Remember him in worship. Remember, Ramon you're alone, you remember him in public, when you are and have remembered Allah Subhana what Allah guarantees that he will remember you.

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

And here there's a hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that further explains this he says

00:03:54--> 00:04:02

that Allah subhanho wa Taala says an IV D, they're the qurani. I am with my slave when he remembers me.

00:04:05--> 00:04:14

If you are alone, if you need help if you need support, if you need someone to listen to understand your problem.

00:04:16--> 00:04:29

If even your problem is beyond explanation, or understanding, and you want someone to be besides you, as soon as you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala you have him with you.

00:04:30--> 00:04:36

As soon as you remember his name, as soon as you remember him in worship, Allah is with you.

00:04:37--> 00:04:50

Then the Hadith further says, for either the Koran if enough see the car to hoof enough, see, when he mentions me to himself. I will mention him to myself.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

You're sitting by yourself and you're saying Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah you're reading the Koran, you're saying istockphoto law and you know who is mentioning your name at

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

That time, Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is an honor when you sit and think about it who is mentioning you? Allah subhana wa Taala That is why

00:05:12--> 00:05:28

someone said, I know when Allah subhana wa Taala is talking about us. They asked him how do you know? They said because he said this. When you remember me, I'll remember you. So I know when I remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is at this moment talking about me.

00:05:30--> 00:05:43

And the Hadith further says, we're in the Karani female and if he mentions my name, in a gathering in public, I'll mention his name in a gathering that is better than his,

00:05:44--> 00:05:49

in front of the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is talking about you

00:05:50--> 00:06:01

and consider the honor who is speaking Allah subhanho wa Taala who is who is listening, the angels of Allah subhana wa tada the best assembly ever, and you are being discussed.

00:06:03--> 00:06:06

But we forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala Don't we?

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

And what happens when we forget?

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

If we forget, then you will be forgotten.

00:06:17--> 00:06:32

Allah says For those who be nasty to me, Iommi kumada. So taste the punishment, because you forgot that you're going to meet this day of yours. They are brothers please come forward as much as possible and filled the frontlines.

00:06:39--> 00:06:39

So

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

if you mentioned Allah subhanho wa Taala in a gathering,

00:06:47--> 00:07:05

the best assembly, Allah subhana wa tada mentions your name, but if you forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, For Luke will be mondesi tulika Iommi comhar that tastes the punishment because you forgot that you're going to meet this de aina nesina comb we have forgotten about you.

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

You forget that Allah will forget you. How do you forget

00:07:12--> 00:07:32

the commands of Allah come the signs of Allah come the revelation of Allah comes to you, and you treat it as if it is not there you treat it, as if you have forgotten it. Then Allah subhana wa Taala will treat you as if he has forgotten you because Allah does not forget. He knows about you. But he will treat you the treatment of someone who forgotten you.

00:07:33--> 00:07:42

And you will not only be forgotten, on the day of judgment, you will be forgotten in this world too, and you will forget about yourself.

00:07:44--> 00:07:56

You will forget about yourself. While at akuna Kadena sola, do not be like those who forgot about Allah, what happened to them when they forgot about Allah, and settlement for sale?

00:07:57--> 00:08:19

He made them forget about their own selves. You can ask yourself, How can I forget my own self? I'm constantly thinking about my own self and about its benefit. And about taking it and removing harm away from it. How can I forget about my own self? Will you forget about your own self, when you forget about what benefits it

00:08:20--> 00:08:53

of course when you eat, when you're hungry, you're going to eat when you're thirsty, you're going to drink. But when you forget about the rules of Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't know anymore, what benefits you and what harms you. So what harms you consumes all of your time or most of it, and what benefits you is neglected. So you forgot about yourself. Like somebody who forgot about his family and is consumed by his work, he forgot about them, they he knows that they are there. But he forgot about what benefits them and what harms them and what benefits him and harms him.

00:08:55--> 00:09:13

So if you do not want a lot to forget about you, on the day of judgment, like that person who will ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Allah in this dunya I was a seeing person. Now when you resurrected me I am a blind person. Why?

00:09:15--> 00:09:32

And what is Allah Subhana what Allah says, Allah karateka Attica tuna is as such, our verses and signs came to you fantasy to and you forgot about them. And today you will be forgotten about forgetfulness, forgetfulness

00:09:35--> 00:09:53

and you can even see in the Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala and this requires from us a deeper understanding and a more penetrating look into the Quran, that when Allah varies the punishment in the origin of his enemies, he varies it for a reason.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

When Allah subhana wa Dionysus for Coolen have namby pamby if you can see Rahim Allah

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

says we have punished them each a punishment that is suitable to them and to their crime for Coolen has never been done before. It's not the same punishment, although all of them are destroyed. But it's not the same punishment

00:10:16--> 00:10:34

for minuman, arson alley house, but some of them we've sent upon them showers of stones from the sky will mean to say hi and some of them that blast or the cry from the sky destroyed them. Woman woman herself Nabeel art and all of them, those that we've caused the earth to seek from underneath.

00:10:35--> 00:10:52

woman who many of them those that were drowned, each one of them had a specific punishment, it's upon us to go and ponder the wisdom and the difference in punishment. But as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, just a wee Falco

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

Jessa and we thought ages are a muhfucka

00:10:58--> 00:11:05

a punishment that is suitable to their crime. Each individual crime deserves different punishment.

00:11:08--> 00:11:20

And even in our relationship with people, Allah subhanho wa Taala had made it so as you treat you will be treated. As you treat people Allah will treat you

00:11:22--> 00:11:38

listen here to the quality of mercy that we are supposed to have. He says, Sal, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, brothers even move closer to me forward sha Allah filler, as many gaps as you can.

00:11:45--> 00:12:06

He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Aurora. Hey, Mona, your hamura man, your hammelmann filled out yet Hong Kong Memphis center. He says those who are merciful will receive mercy from the Most Merciful. So be merciful with those on this earth. Allah who is in the heavens will be merciful with you.

00:12:07--> 00:12:19

You ask Allah subhana wa tada Allah forgive me. Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala Be merciful with me. And yet you are not forgiving and that you are not merciful. You've blocked the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his forgiveness.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

You want forgiveness? Remember, is a few of the profits a lot of Islam says and daddy forgive, you will be forgiven.

00:12:30--> 00:12:43

Anyone who has committed any wrongdoing any crime against you, no matter how big that is. Compare that to the crime that each one of us commits against the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:44--> 00:13:00

And yet we continue to ask Allah to forgive us if we were asking forgiveness for the greater crime. Can we show forgiveness for the lesser crime? Can we forgive our spouses and children and parents and our brothers and sisters and make this for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:01--> 00:13:26

whether they deserve it or not, whether they had confessed their mistake or not, but make it for Allah subhana wa tada and say, Oh Allah, I want to be mercy. I want to receive your mercy. And I know that the pastor This is for me to be merciful. So Allah I forgive this person and allow forgive you allow Be merciful and kind in treatment with other people are not shout and will not scream, I will not cheat.

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

And so Allah subhana wa tada will be merciful with you Don't you want that? from Allah.

00:13:33--> 00:14:13

Once a woman came to a shot of the Allahu anhu, she's visiting her and I shall the Allahu anhu. She gave her three dates. That's what she had three dates. And the woman had two boys with her. So she gave one day to one child another day to another child and kept one to herself. They quickly swallowed those dates. And then as soon as they were done that looked at their mother, at the lawn day that was left in her hand. Out of mercy, she split those two dates, this one date into two halves, game, one half to one boy and the other half to the other boy. And this stayed without a shadow of the law and that mercy that this mother showed stayed with our Asia. So when the Prophet

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back, she told him about it.

00:14:18--> 00:14:37

And he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, 1 million people came in Derek, and not Allah Amina and Allah azza wa jal aka Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, he has to be a a. He says, what makes you wonder this Don't you know that Allah subhana wa Taala has forgiven her because of the mercy that she showed to her two children.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

Your two children

00:14:41--> 00:14:54

of course you will be merciful with them. But of course Allah subhanho wa Taala will be more merciful with you when you are merciful. Even if you're merciful with a sparrow with a little bird.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

That's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, with a little bird that you're going to slaughter

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

And he says man Brahimi that we had that was for the haimo. Laurie Amalfi Am I the one who's merciful. When he is slaughtering, killing a small bird. He's not toying with it, he wants to eat it but even he's merciful with it he will receive the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, and if we don't do that, then the opposite is truly true.

00:15:22--> 00:15:26

In the law, you as the Buddha you as the Buddha, NASA Jr, as he sets a lot,

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

a lot punishes those or tortures those who torture people in dystonia.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

If they torture people,

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

they should expect torture from Allah subhana wa tada

00:15:41--> 00:15:50

man Bara Bara la Hobi woman Sha, Sha, la la la, the one who causes harm, he harms people, Allah will harm him.

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

And the one who causes them difficulty allow bring difficulty his way.

00:15:57--> 00:16:08

So consider in your daily life, in dealing with yourself with your family, with your brothers and sisters in dealing with non Muslims in dealing with animals that you see.

00:16:09--> 00:16:26

cause difficulty as you put out cause difficulty and then expect difficulty from Allah subhanho wa Taala don't be tempted if it is delayed and so no and say no. If you do something wrong, Allah subhanho wa Taala will show you this mistake.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

And if you do something right, Allah Subhana Allah will show you its reward. Hola, como esta la

00:16:56--> 00:17:08

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Hamden? Catherine Pleven Mubarak and Fie. Well, suddenly, what was the limit? Allah Rasulullah Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa early he was selling them while he was a big man Ubud.

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala also says in terms of Allah Hi, um, so

00:17:17--> 00:17:40

if you give victory to Allah, if you champion Allah, He will in turn, do the same with you, give you victory and champion you and he are giving victory to Allah subhanho wa Taala means giving victory to his commands, giving victory to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam giving victory to his Sunnah giving took theory to the revelation of Allah, if you give victory to it in your own life, personal life

00:17:43--> 00:17:50

in the life of your family, and the owner gives victory to the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah has promised that he will give victory to it.

00:17:51--> 00:18:27

And the opposite is true. When you do not see the victory of Allah in your own personal life, you are committing injustice against yourself by sin, you're gonna get committing injustice against your spouse, against your children, against your parents. And then you see that Allah does not support you. Allah does not support you against his enemies. You ask why I'm Muslim why I pray because you did not support Allah subhana wa Taala so he did not fulfill that promise. And when the amount of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees that it's not given victory, it is not given victory because it did not give victory.

00:18:29--> 00:19:13

Let it raise and elevate the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the religion of Allah and that it will and it should expect victory from Allah. But what happens is when you commit injustice, and think of injustice as a magnet, you will attract other injustice to it and unjust people. What is Allah subhana wa tada say, Okay, there you can only Baba volley Mina Ba ba ba not can we accept and such we couple and join transgressors wrongdoers with each other, because of the things that they used to do. What is this mean? has several meanings, we put them together in Hellfire, we put them together in this dunya so that that that they misguide each other, they tempt

00:19:13--> 00:19:34

each other, they keep the company of each other. It also has another meaning that if the subjects of the people of the land are unjust, they cheat and they lie. They don't pray, they don't give there's a car. They don't fast they do this, this this this and they sinned against Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them someone who is like them or worse.

00:19:35--> 00:19:44

He will rise from among them and he will be like them or verse And only when they are good will Allah subhana wa Taala bring someone who is good to be above them.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

That is why and you go to the theater to see they say if Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with the people how would you know? He puts their best on their top? He leaves them and if Allah is displeased with the people, how would you know it?

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

He puts their worst on their top.

00:20:04--> 00:20:09

So we want this injustice that is upon us in many Muslim lands to be removed.

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

You go back to justice and you go back to Allah subhana wa tada and fix yourself and Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove it.

00:20:20--> 00:20:24

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam has given a guarantee.

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

He says, my yardman my young man Lima, the Navajo Marina de,

00:20:33--> 00:20:41

who will guarantee to me what is between his two jaw bones and between his legs and I will guarantee for him heaven.

00:20:42--> 00:21:06

A guarantee for a guarantee you do your part and the profits a lot he was hilum who speaks the truth that you cannot question his guarantee, you know, for sure it's going to happen. He says, I give you this guarantee, just fulfill its conditions. You're going to go to Jenna, what should I do oh prophet of Allah. He says, protect your tongue. Protect your private parts. Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect you.

00:21:07--> 00:21:31

And another Hadith I will just translated rather than say the Arabic He sets a lot he said them guarantee from me that you speak the truth when you speak, that you fulfill the promise when you promise that you give the trust back when you are entrusted, that you protect your private parts guaranteed to me that you will avert your eyes from the heart on guaranteed to me that you will withhold your hands from doing wrong, our guarantee heaven for you.

00:21:32--> 00:21:37

As you will do as you will commit yourself to you will be treated.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

Look at the reward of piety.

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

There was one slave and his name was an Mubarak.

00:21:51--> 00:21:56

And this slave was freed by his master. Yet he continued to work for his master

00:21:57--> 00:22:24

guarding his gardens and property. So one of those days, the previous master tells al Mubarak Go and bring me some sweet fruit. So he goes and he collects some fruit and brings it to that previous master. He starts eating them and he says this is sour. Don't you know the difference between sweet and sour? He said you've never allowed me. You've never given me permission to eat from it. So I don't know the difference between sweet and sour fruit.

00:22:25--> 00:22:45

And he wasn't convinced. He said you've been guarding this place this garden for a year now. You mean to tell me that you've not tasted one fruit, one single fruit? And he says No. Not yet convinced. He goes and he questions the neighbors. Have you ever seen him eating from the fruit of this garden? And they said we've never seen him eating from that fruit.

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

So he goes back to him. And he says, I have one daughter. Whom should I give this Dora to in marriage?

00:22:55--> 00:23:15

Now he's asking to his former slave to see what Islam does. He says the Jews marry for money. The Christians marry for beauty. The Arabs marry for family and lineage and the Muslims marry for tequila. So choose which party do you belong to and do as they do.

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

He says I do not know of anyone who is or has more taqwa than you.

00:23:21--> 00:23:43

Then you will marry her and he married her. And his son was a Blue Lion and robotic that the great scholar of Islam. He was rich, he was scholar, and he was a Mujahid for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he used to say something like rejecting or giving

00:23:44--> 00:24:01

or rejecting money from that is suspicious that I would reject 600,000 or I'm sorry that I would reject $1 of suspicious origins is better than donating $600,000

00:24:03--> 00:24:16

rather than donating money, right and giving sadaqa yet accepting it from suspicious origins he says that I reject this one thing is better than donating and donating and donating.

00:24:17--> 00:24:29

This is the product of Jehovah Allah subhanho wa Taala and there are many other stories like that. But then what do we get from all of this? What do we get from all of this? it fully

00:24:31--> 00:24:44

protect a loss of Hannah what Allah be mindful of him and he will protect you protect Allah subhanho wa Taala and his laws and in the message of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and wherever you turn, you will find him.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

Protect Allah subhana wa Taala and you will never be alone.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Most Merciful, the Most High, the Most Beneficent to Marcus of those who

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

are merciful. Allah make us of those who are merciful. Allah make us of those who are merciful. While I make us of those who are forgiving, Allah make us of those who are forgiving. Will Allah make us of those who are forgiving, while I make us of those who are observant of your laws, or Allah make us of those who are observant of your laws, or law makers of those who are observant of your laws? Will Allah make us of those who commit themselves to doing good make Allah make us of those who distance themselves from doing evil, or Allah make us of those who sincerely and quickly repent to you when they do a mistake? Allah make us of those who remember you all the time did not

00:25:38--> 00:26:17

make us of those who forgot about you a lot. Do not make us of those who forgot about you, a lot. Do not make us of those who forgot about you a lot. Forgive all of our sins, or a lot forgive all of our sins and the sins of the rest of the Muslims. Or Allah united the Muslims upon your book and the son of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and give them victory against their enemy.

I remind you in sha Allah before leaving that today to donate generously to the masjid and to make it constant, whether to this mustard or any other cause that you give constantly for Allah subhanho wa Taala This is part of the lesson that we can take from the whole TVA is that when you give you expect the money to decrease, but Allah subhanho wa Taala will treat you as you have treated Allah subhana wa Taala when you give money, Allah subhana wa tada will bless it and will bless what you have and will bless your family for it. Instead when you try to earn money from unlawful means and you think that it's increasing. Allah subhanho wa Taala will treat you with the opposite of your

00:27:39--> 00:27:43

intention and will take it away from you and will take the blessing away. Welcome
