And Allah Subhana Allah he says, Oh, mankind, Fear your Lord, or all you who believe Fear your Lord and say that which is correct, he will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then they are indeed victorious.

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

To proceed.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

Allah Subhana Allah he says, Avila helped me know,

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

successful are the believers.

00:03:59--> 00:04:11

And in this beautiful sequence at the beginning of Surah, Mina and Allah subhanaw taala begins to list a number of these qualities of these believers who will be successful.

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

We all want to be successful

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

in this life.

00:04:19--> 00:04:25

We read self help books and success Gary's charged by the hundreds of dollars or not the 1000s

00:04:27--> 00:04:38

by the hour, for this concept, this idea of being successful we want our children to be successful. Allah subhanaw taala declares who is successful

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

and he says to me, no, and let it end Alladhina homefree Salah to him has shown

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

the first quality is the quality of belief that's the first quality of success.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was presented with people who were incredibly successful. I shall tell you Allah and ash

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

He asked Rasulullah sallallahu I said to them about Abdullahi Judah and he was a man who is famous for his generosity. He was famous for his help and support of people, those who were in need. He was someone who had so many successful attributes.

00:05:19--> 00:05:56

And I shall the Allah Anna asked the Prophet sallallahu send them about this man and she said, he used to take care of those who are in need, and he used to feed the poor, is that going to benefit him on the day of judgment and the problem is still alive as Adam says that's not going to benefit him on the Day of Judgment at all, because not once did he ever say befittingly healthy Ito Medina, he never once said, Oh ALLAH forgive me on the day of judgment, the most important quality of success is Iman and so Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and he says for Lakota humble acaba de la cama la acaba Karaca FeO means he must cover Allah Subhana Allah begins to recount in Surah Al Balad a

00:05:56--> 00:06:16

number of qualities through which a person will be saved from the Hellfire for Kurata by the freeing of a slave or feeding people during days of difficulty yet theme and the merkabah taking care of an orphan who's a relative to you owe me skin and the metal robber, or a person who's so impoverished that their hand is literally touching the ground

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

from want and need.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

And then Allah subhana wa Tada says, To makan, I mean Alladhina amanu.

00:06:26--> 00:06:45

And then they were of the people of faith, meaning that if a person took care of the orphan and they fed the poor, and they did all of these actions, freed slaves, but they did not pair these great actions with iman, they would not be successful. And so let me know the first quality is Iman and Latino visa team has shown

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

those who have who assure in their Salah mindfulness presence, that when they stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala, that they are aware that they are standing in front of the king of kings.

00:06:59--> 00:07:06

I'll never forget one time I had a convert come up to me, and we were talking about them for short fistula and he said to me, he said,

00:07:07--> 00:07:28

is there's something wrong with my prayer? And I said, What do you mean? He said, You know, you're talking about the fat and being distracted and Salah and you're talking about, like, how to focus and he's, I don't have any of that. I don't have any of that. He said, As soon as I start to pray, everything in this world vanishes and it's just me and Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:29--> 00:07:48

and I feel most alive when I'm in the slot outside of the floodlight. I feel like I'm a shell of myself. And I'm just waiting for the salah to come again and again and again. I don't even need an event app I don't need it. I get goose bumps when the time for Salah come so what's wrong with my salah? There's nothing wrong with me. There's nothing wrong with your Salah.

00:07:50--> 00:07:57

It's our Salah that's problematic, but this notion of when you are standing that you are standing in front of Allah subhana adatta you are aware

00:07:58--> 00:08:08

you are broken you are humble. Olivia Humphrey Salah team harsh here on will Ladino home and in law who are alone, and those who turn away from vain endeavors vain speech.

00:08:09--> 00:08:29

00:08:30--> 00:08:41

Don't indulge in every conversation. Don't follow everything that's trending. Everything that people are talking about. You have to talk about because that's what's current.

00:08:42--> 00:08:51

Allah subhanaw taala says rather the believers are those who guard their tongues. They stay away from that which is doubtful.

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah later on.

00:08:56--> 00:09:09

When he describes the people of the Hellfire, what will they say? My silica comfy suffer. Paulo guna Lemna comida masala. We weren't of those who prayed.

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

The believers pray with for sure. Those who are in suffer they did not pray.

00:09:16--> 00:09:29

When I'm not going to England Miskin Allah subhanaw taala describes the believers he says we're living in a homeless Zakah Tifa Island. These individuals who are in soccer did not feed the port. They did not give zakat they didn't give charity.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

What could Nana hold on Alpha even whereas the believers are Alladhina home and in love with him or you don't they were the ones who stayed away from false conversations, vain conversations, backbiting, slander, all of these things. The people who are in Sokar guna and whom and fighting what everybody's talking about, we were talking about. People are backbiting were backbiting people are cursing workers and people are are whatever people indulge in, we indulge

00:10:44--> 00:11:05

Because number one, we've been socialized to look at it as a consensual act, it is something that is between two willing partners, because shaytaan beautifies it with all of these, these friendly terminologies such as making love such as friends with benefits such as such as such as

00:11:07--> 00:11:14

and so you don't feel that sorts of repellent nature to it. But

00:11:15--> 00:11:29

Imam Ahmed here is saying that I don't know of a sin that is greater after killing of a soul. Why if not came he said something profound, he says was Zina. He says Zina destroys the institutions of the world.

00:11:31--> 00:11:44

He says, I know you then made an alarm in Ireland, it destroys the institutions of the world. And I always just don't like how does it feel to know that like, how did you know that 1000 years ago? How did you know that Xena destroys the institutions of the world.

00:11:45--> 00:12:29

You can't look at Xena as a crime simply between two people. But you have to see as Allah subhanaw taala described it when he says in no kinda it's your turn wasa sav law, that is a fascia and decency, but it's an evil path. It's an evil path for a person to go down. It's an evil path for a society to go down. When you look and you see the institutions of the world failing when you see the institution of marriage failing when you see America currently, for the first time we are actually having a negative population growth. When you see for the first time children are being born out of wedlock at a one to one ratio when you see the the the way that it harms children who are born

without the presence of a father when you see so many different negative effects on society. You see Allah subhanaw taala calling itself as a vida.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

An evil path.

00:12:43--> 00:13:17

When you see the psychological effects that it has on people that we're leaving in the most hedonistic society, possibly at least in the United States history ever, and yet people are so filled with anxiety and depression and sadness and loneliness. the breaking down of the family unit Allah subhanaw taala says in no kind of actually there was a sav Allah Allah says we're living only afford your Avalon Illa Allah is waiting on my medical aim. I know for a normal human who mean for many taharah daddy Kofoed icon without doing Allah Subhana Allah says of course except for those who present or engage in intimacy with their spouses and that which is lawful for them.

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

And a beautiful day out for a person to make.

00:13:22--> 00:13:44

For Allah Subhana Allah has blessed the person with a spouse is to ask Allah Subhana Allah to make that spouse sufficient for them. Allahu mfine Behala Attica and holonic welcome any public Iman see what Oh ALLAH suffice me with what is hot out over that which is how long whatever you've given me to me that is how I'll make it enough for me and make me not in need of anyone other than you.

Allah subhana Taza Levine only Emma and our team Well, Adam, Ron, and those who maintain their trusts, they fulfill their covenants, they fulfill their agreements, they fulfill their promises. Well, at the end of my last time you have your loan and those who again we see full circle that coming back to the prayer again, and those who maintain and preserve their prayers will let it go home will very soon. They are the ones who will inherit what will they inherit?

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ano Cybersyn. Seaman cathedra. To conclude there's

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

if we were to look at these qualities that Allah Subhana Allah mentions at the beginning of this chapter, we'll see that the qualities are belief prayer, avoiding feigned speech, Zeca, chastity, and trustworthiness, trustworthiness and tonight we'll be talking about the munafo and you'll find that every single one of these traits then went off you're gonna have adopted the opposite attitude. And so obviously they don't

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

believe they say Nicola Rasulullah Allahu Yasha indica la rasuna hola we are shut and then when I fill in the Malathion, Allah caribou, Allah subhanaw taala, bears witness that they are lying they don't believe. And when it comes to their fulfilling of trust the province of Elijah send them says that the signs of the hypocrites are for and whoever has them has an attribute of hypocrisy and have them as either had the cicada when they speak they lie way that to Mina Han, when they are given a trust, they betray their trust. And when you look at their salah, of course Allah Subhana Allah data says welcome EULA Salatu Salam o Kosala, you know, when and that's what is called on Allah, Allah

00:15:32--> 00:16:06

kalila that when they stand, they stand not with social not with any sort of maintenance. They don't, they're not. They're not you have a loan either sold out rather, they're lazy when it comes to the prayer. They're not present when they come to the prayer. In fact, they don't remember Allah subhanaw taala except for much. And when it comes to Alpha SHA, they love for it to spread amongst those who believe. And so we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the attributes of those who believe and to protect us from the attributes of those who disbelieved and to protect us from the attributes of those who pretend to believe Allahu manana is a local Jana or mokara Bury him and call him when
