Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah.

00:00:05 --> 00:00:10

Today insha Allah brothers and sisters, I want to talk about the topic

00:00:11 --> 00:00:23

of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is knowledge and that he is with us wherever we are. And then I'm going to transition into *, Doha, Doha and supplications.

00:00:25 --> 00:00:30

And how to understand that Allah is with us, and He knows everything.

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

And how we can rely on him and have to look good.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:42

And not to worry about the calamities and the ups and downs of the world that come to us and how to deal with them in sha Allah.

00:00:43 --> 00:00:48

It's going to be a very nice and interesting journey tonight in sha Allah Who tile

00:00:49 --> 00:00:53

my brothers and sisters, when one ponders

00:00:55 --> 00:01:06

on the characteristics and the lives of the prophets, we find that all of them went through calamities, and tests and trials as you know,

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

you also find out his salaam

00:01:10 --> 00:01:11

when he sees the dream,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

and he knows that

00:01:16 --> 00:01:19

his father tells him that your brothers are going to plot against you

00:01:20 --> 00:01:25

and that his family may abandon him and he might go through domestic violence.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:49

He tells the dream to his father, and his father himself. Jacoba Alayhis Salam does not know what his son's fate is. And He is a messenger of Allah Jacobo Alayhis Salam Jacob. Yeah, go valets Salam. He says to him, Son, don't tell your dream to your brothers. Otherwise they will plot a terrible plot against you.

00:01:50 --> 00:02:36

And in the end of the verse, Jaco ballet Salam says to his son, in Arab Baca, Alim on Hakeem, your load is ever so knowing and he's ever so wise. Brothers and sisters, when we recite this verse, we pass it very quickly. But every word that Allah subhanaw taala states in the Quran has a tremendous and deep meaning. That is why pondering on the Quran is extremely crucial. And when we read it again and again, the meaning starts to mean even deeper when we concentrate. He says three words or four words in Rob Baca, Ali Aman Hakeem. In other words, oh, use of my son. I don't know what's the fate I don't know what's in store for you. I don't know how to interpret this dream for you. But this is

00:02:36 --> 00:03:23

something that I do know your Lord who is your caretaker and your guardian. He is ever so knowing. He knows the past, the present and the future. He knows what is installed for you. Hakeem, meaning that he is wise. In Arabic when you say hikma. It means to know where everything belongs. Allah knows where to put things in their right place. In other words, Jacoba a Salem is telling his son, son, right now you don't know. But there is no no need to worry. Or to make conclusions. You may go through hardships. But always remember that Allah is with you all the way. He knows exactly what's going to happen. And if you rely on him Truly, He will know where to place everything in the right

00:03:23 --> 00:04:12

place. Your mission is to be patient, do the right thing. And stay with Allah and don't give up and be an ally to Allah by the will of Allah, things will unfold. No calamity stays forever brothers and sisters, and no luxury or joy stays forever. We are here for a trial and a test. There are happy times and bad times your duty don't abandon Allah. Allah will never abandon you. But you have to be patient. Don't be hasty. Don't rush things. Don't say I made dua. Why hasn't Allah accepted my dua? This is disrespect to Allah. And this is not knowing who Allah truly is. When we see Zakaria, Allah His Salam wanting a child, and he says, Oh my lord, while I'm a combi dua, Ikara bisha Korea, My

00:04:12 --> 00:04:52

Lord, I have never been unblessed in my supplication to the meaning the Creole a Salam is saying, or you have never failed me, my lord, and I have never assumed the wrong of you. And I will never assume wrong of you even humbly gift me with a righteous child. Even the way they used to ask Allah was an absolute humbleness with absolute respect, and with absolute piety and reliance on him Subhana when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his wife had Israel the Allah one died when his father and mother died when he was raised as an orphan, when He is uncle who protected him died when all the Muslims had migrated from Mecca to Medina and he was left homeless they were going to

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

assassinate him and they only had a look at it Allah and who with him, and he ran from Mecca and and hid very

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

very carefully. While people were after him and his Yeah, they had a bounty on his head sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he was calm. And he said to an advocate Alana was a little bit nervous. And when they were in the cave, y'all know the story in Sahih al Bukhari, he says, to have a bucket of the Allah Juan whomever and look, before Nene Allah who thoroughly thought our worker, what would you think of two people Allah is their third? Allah says there's in the Quran is Houma. Filati if you're if you're kolonie sahibi hayleigh Doesn't in Allah Hama Anna when those two were in the cave, when he said to his companion mean Mohamed Salah said I'm set to work with the Allahu Anhu Do not be said

00:05:41 --> 00:06:20

and done. Don't grieve. Allah is with us your mission stick by what is right by Allah subhanahu wata, Isla keep doing what you can even if you go through hardships and sicknesses and hardships when he saw her murdered no Yasser the Allahu Anhu when he was captured by the disbelievers of Mecca, he was tired and he was made to watch his own father and mother be killed in front of him. And they died. He ran to the prophets Allah salaam afterwards when they released him. And he said, Yeah, Allah, don't, don't lose yourself. Your father and mother are the first martyrs and they are the first of paradise among them among the Muslims. And he said, Oh rasool Allah. It's not that I

00:06:20 --> 00:06:53

mentioned you in a bad way. And Rasul Allah sallam said to him, if they capture you again, does your heart agree with it? He says, Now Allah here Rasul Allah is if they capture you again, and they did the same thing. You repeat the same thing to them say, swear at me not a problem. Because in that case, it's a matter of life and death. The point brothers and sisters is this there are people who will be captured there are people will be going through hardships and you might think to yourself, well, how come Allah doesn't accept the dot for them? When he says that he's always there with them? And how can we accept the dog for the process? Lm saying that Allah is with us the answer, brothers

00:06:53 --> 00:07:32

and sisters is this. We don't know everything. Allah knows everything. And everything is accounted for you are in a time of trial. Be patient with Allah subhanho wa taala. And never assume wrong wherever you are. It's the place you have to be. Make it right and do the right thing within the way Allah created you. Whether he created you a boy, or a girl, a male or a female in the family that you were born with the parents that you have the children that you have the relatives that you have, don't sit there complaining night and day and getting angry and cutting off your ties and being bad to your parents and saying Why did God give me these parents? Or your children? Why did God give me

00:07:32 --> 00:08:12

this son or this daughter who gives me headache or heartache? or cutting off your family ties saying how toxic they all learn? Some of them can be but what should you be doing? Listen to what Allah and His mission to commanded you and do within your power. Don't lose your heart and grow into harsh heartedness. Remember, everything is a trial and a test and you are in the right place and Allah knows that nothing befalls you, except that he knows you aren't able to pass it, but it is you or me who will block the way. Always remember in Allah Holleyman. What is it that Jacoba As Salam said to his son, I told you there are four words in Allah, Allah Iman, Hakeem and Alleman means what?

00:08:14 --> 00:08:44

He knows everything there is a which means knowledge. And there is Eileen even the way recited, we extend it, which means they and Fah knowledge beyond your capacity, hacky everything he knows where to place it in the right place, Hakeem, isn't that correct? Always remember those in Allah Halim, and Hakeem even Jacoba Lai Salam. Every time he planned them. He planned to try and save his son. Nothing went his way.

00:08:45 --> 00:09:32

Jacoba a Salem every time he planned, did it go his way? No. He told his sons, I don't want to send him out with you. It backfired. He told his sons, the wolf will eat him. It backfired. They use that against him. They used his they weren't thinking of using the wolf as a lie. He gave them that idea. So he was planning and it backfired. He tried not to lose his son, he lost him. He tried to get him back. He couldn't and even afterwards, so brothers and sisters in the Lucha Lehmann, Hakeem, go like that in all your life, insha Allah Jota Allah and do not give him brothers and sisters, let us talk then about Allah how he he is Eileen and Hakeem from the Quran. We will go through some verses in

00:09:32 --> 00:09:45

sha Allah that are deep, that we always recite in our Salah 10 at home, and I advise you brothers, sisters, don't ever leave the Quran every day, recite it, everyday recite from it. Allah subhanahu wa Allah says

00:09:47 --> 00:09:49

I was willing to share turmeric Allah Rahmani Raheem.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:57

Rumeida Kelly Matthew Beale NFE

00:10:02 --> 00:10:05

further Calima to be

00:10:09 --> 00:10:12

further galima to be

00:10:14 --> 00:10:24

the myth NEMA The, Allah says in surah Toluca have, towards the end, say, oh Mohamed, in brackets say,

00:10:25 --> 00:10:31

if the entire ocean of the Earth was turned into ink,

00:10:32 --> 00:11:02

to write the words of your Lord and all his knowledge, the entire ocean would dry out and become depleted and disappear. Before your war, your Lord's words would run out. Even if Allah says even if we brought another set of oceans, like them and made them into ink again to write the words of your Lord, they will perish and be gone again before your Lord's word words will perish. Allahu Akbar brothers and sisters, Allah says another verse, why No.

00:11:04 --> 00:11:08

Feel? The shedule 19

00:11:10 --> 00:11:15

What are we doing? What about hold on we do.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:23

About D He said, Don't ever heard in Nephi, that girly man at all.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:33

In a long season hockey game, Allah says and if all the trees on earth

00:11:34 --> 00:11:50

were pens, all the trees on earth were what pens and the ocean were ink with seven oceans behind it to add and to supply over and over.

00:11:51 --> 00:12:33

Yet the words of your Lord will not be exhausted in the writing for Allah is Exalted in Power, full of wisdom. The word seven does not mean the number seven. For those of you who know Arabic, in Arabic, when you say seven, pointing to a particular counting like an object or a number of something, then it means the number. But when you talk in this context, Allah says even if we brought seven oceans, it does not mean literally the number seven. It means multiples upon multiples, no number,

00:12:35 --> 00:12:56

saying when Allah says that he created seven heavens seven skies, it doesn't mean literally seven layers of skies brings just as this is a misconception a lot of people don't understand. Them will first sit on said this means seven meaning multiples of layers. Only Allah knows how many seven in Arabic is sometimes used for no number meaning many, many, many

00:12:58 --> 00:13:02

brothers and sisters, how much water is there on earth?

00:13:03 --> 00:13:10

How much water is there on earth? Have you thought about that? When Allah says the oceans of the earth were made over and over for the ink of your Lord?

00:13:12 --> 00:13:27

There is the scientists have told us have discovered that there is approximately 1.2 6 billion trillion litres 1.2 6 billion trillion litres of water on Earth.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:40

And how many trees? Scientists estimate in the 21st century there is approximately 3 trillion trees on earth. All of them in depends

00:13:41 --> 00:13:55

1.2 6 billion trillion litres of water turned into ink. And Allah says over and over again. Allah's knowledge is beyond our comprehension, brothers and sisters.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:00

Allah says in the Quran, in Allah,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:02

ye thus

00:14:03 --> 00:14:04


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

long lubelski

00:14:08 --> 00:14:24

Bhima Mon. Surely Allah knows every hidden thing of the heavens in the earth. Allah sees all that you do. Indeed, Allah knows the Unseen of the skies, and the unseen of the earth.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:28

scientists and astronomers they say

00:14:30 --> 00:14:59

that everything we currently know, everything we see in the universe is just 5% of everything in the universe. 5% they know 95% We still haven't even seen and cannot understand. When Allah says he knows that which is unseen meaning to you the hidden. What do we know what have we seen? What have we seen? Yet? We see people becoming arrogant.

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

Some boastful, why did God do this? So do that Allahu Akbar, Allah says, well, you're here to nab che immunized me. They can never encompass a single even an atom's where something very small of Allah Subhana Allah is knowledge.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:59

Some of us, we may say things as if we are comparing ourselves to God to Allah, the bliss, the big Satan, why did he become a disbeliever? When he refused to bow to Adam brothers and sisters? Is it because he just disobeyed Allah? Well, then we would have said then that if you disobey Allah become a careful but that is not true. disobeying Allah doesn't make you a disbeliever. We could have said that he was arrogant, meaning that he thought he's better than Adam. Well, that doesn't make you a Kaffir. That makes you have a quality of arrogance. But what he did was, he made him his knowledge, and his own wisdom, and his own thoughts of justice equal to God. He said to him, I am better than

00:15:59 --> 00:16:08

him. You are telling me to bow to someone I'm better to you are not just oh god, he took away one of God's names, which is Aladdin, the just

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

and he would not accept Allah's knowledge of the Cree his decision, meaning that at least thinks he has a better decision than God. That's like when somebody reads something from the Quran, where Allah says, Don't do this, or do that. And then I come up and I say stuff for Allah. My logic tells me otherwise.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:49

I'm not going to take this verse or that verse, Allah says, Allah told me no, and Aviva Kitab Iwata, Corona, Baba, you agree or you accept some of the book, and others you don't he said this about the children of Israel at the time of Moses, the ones who became Jews later on, when they received the Torah, they picked and chose which verses they want to want and which ones they don't.

00:16:50 --> 00:16:56

So doing that is absolute disbelief, and meaning that you're making your knowledge and your wisdom similar to God's.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:20

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says about the womb, now we're going to go, I'm going to take you on a journey to the tiny minut things of Allah's creation and what he knows, and then we're going to go outwards into the biggest things which Allah Subhana Allah created, and he knows listen to this remarkable, amazing miracle of Allah, as Allah says, In the Quran, or

00:17:23 --> 00:17:23


00:17:24 --> 00:17:26

the EMR, Runa,

00:17:27 --> 00:17:37

whom none. Goon, Allah says, How many, how many? How many signs do they pass by in the heavens?

00:17:40 --> 00:18:19

While they are neglectful of them, some people they say where is the miracle of God? We say to your brother and sister Subhan Allah, what are you nothing before this and now you're here. This is a miracle from Allah. See how the rain drops from the clouds you forgot that this is a miracle from Allah, the sun rising and setting you forgot this is a miracle from Allah, the way Allah decorated the heavens, the Sky with Stars Above us big bowls of gas, burning billions of miles away, you forgot this is a miracle from Allah, the moon and how it rotates. And it's a clockwise how it rotates to give us timing throughout our year and we know our calculations and mathematics you

00:18:19 --> 00:19:00

forgot that this is a miracle, your own palms, your own fingerprints, your own eyes, the human being we forgot that this is a miracle but see what Allah says. He says, Fatah Allah Allah him will Emma do for CASA Kulu boohooman SOTL Hadith he says don't be like those before who received the signs in the scriptures. But as time passed, they got used to them, and their hearts became hard and to our signs. When people get used to something over and over again. We tend to forget that this is a sign from Allah. But Allah says we're mayors. How do we at Tina Illa Kula Coolangatta Linka for the only ones who become arrogant and deny our signs are the ones who are betrayers and instancia. Allah

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

says, a long way out Mirtha New

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


00:19:10 --> 00:19:13

Math is the one coin no shame in

00:19:16 --> 00:19:16

the email.

00:19:19 --> 00:19:47

Allah says in chapter 13, verse eight, Allah does know what every female womb carries by how much the wounds fall short of their time, or number, or do exceed every single thing is before his sight in a fixed, precise measure. Brothers and sisters, don't pass this verse quickly.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:59

Analyze every word Allah is saying. I repeat it. Allah does know what every female womb carries by how much the wombs fall short

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

don't have their time and number or do they exceed every single thing is before his sight in a fixed precise measure.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:14

In Cathedral, the great Morpheus said, commentator said,

00:20:15 --> 00:20:41

Allah remains fully aware of all the developments that take place in the child while in its mother's womb. And he watches over the decreases or increases in each of its makeup, limbs, its potentialities capabilities, and its powers. Brothers and sisters Billa before you even become conceived by your mother,

00:20:42 --> 00:20:46

before the sperm and the egg even come in contact,

00:20:47 --> 00:21:36

ALLAH SubhanA wa ala, guides everything around that from the what's in your mother's womb to everything around it in its environment and everything else even before your parents got married, even before your parents were born, the Hadith of the prophets Allah Selim says before the creation of the heavens and the earth by 50,000 years, Allah had decreed your birth to be in that way. And he had already decreed exactly what kind of genetic coding you're going to have. What kind of genomes are going to exist in your DNA sequence, what kind of nucleotides are going to exist inside of your DNA, which determine how your color is going to be your hair, your eyes, everything brothers and

00:21:36 --> 00:22:07

sisters, where the cells are going to come from and the atoms that will come together with their tiny protons and electrons. And even smaller than that, in the trillions and trillions in number without faulting even one atom, except that it makes it to the right place. Allah is all knowing, and he is wise he plays everything in its right place. With his knowledge brothers, sisters, this is beyond what we can feather. Wala, who ever thinks of it deeply?

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

Let me give you a demonstration.

00:22:12 --> 00:22:17

Do you know how many cells are there in an average human body?

00:22:19 --> 00:22:26

Have a guess how many cells in an average human adult body? So obviously there are some with more sales than others.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

20 million higher.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:36

50 million higher. 100 million higher, higher, higher.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:43

3 billion higher. One three higher.

00:22:45 --> 00:23:10

High 100 100 trillion. Okay, so we're getting close. Scientists estimate and geneticists estimate 30 trillion cells in an average adult body. Stay with me now, how many cells on average 30 trillion cells in this little body of yours, compared to the universe you are, you're not even a speck.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:34

Those cells are different types. He got the red blood cells, he got the white blood cells, he got the liver cells, you got the brain cells, you got all these different types of cells 30 trillion. Then you have another type of cells called the bacterial cells, you have 38 trillion bacterial cells. So now that 68 trillion different types of cells in your body.

00:23:36 --> 00:23:39

You have 200 different types of cells in your body.

00:23:41 --> 00:24:12

The brain, the brain by itself, Allah has created approximately 171 billion billion be 171 billion cells in our brain alone. The cells of the brain, my dear brothers and sisters, when those very interesting, they never die. From the moment you are conceived by your mother, the cell, the brain cells, they are formed, and they continue until you die.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:16

Just the brain cells. Allah knows why.

00:24:18 --> 00:24:24

There are 86 billion neurons. Do you know what neurons are?

00:24:27 --> 00:24:46

Okay, they're tiny cells inside your brain and they connect to each other. They have electric impulses. They're the ones that make they are responsible for all the functions of your brain and your nervous system. It's why you're walking while you're talking. Why you see why you speak why you think why you retain memory, everything brothers and sisters.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:49

I want you now to add on top of that,

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51


00:24:53 --> 00:24:58

every day, new cells are born and old cells die

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells us in the Quran He knows every new born in the earth and in your souls and in the entire universe of everything that dies, in your souls in the universe and in the earth. Do you know how many just just the cells, how many die every day, and how many are born and Allah knows each and every single one of them their birth and their timing had written when they're going to be born and when they're going to die.

00:25:29 --> 00:25:33

The scientists have told us just the red blood cells, just the red blood cells.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:37

Two to 3 million

00:25:39 --> 00:25:43

red blood cells are born every second.

00:25:45 --> 00:25:56

How many? Two to 3 million red blood cells are born? Every, every second one, two to 3 million plus has just been born in your body.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:01

And the same amount roughly dies every second.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:05

Why? Because Allah creates a balance.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:18

Did you remember the verse I recited before, repeat that last part. What could Lucia in India who who knows Arabic, the miracle Tao.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:27

Every single thing is before his sight in a fixed and precise measure.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:34

So now your breath blood cells, your DNA, your sequences, you nucleotide, your genomes, everything is in precise measure.

00:26:36 --> 00:26:46

The white blood cells and your liver cells, each also has a lifespan. And Allah subhanaw taala knows each one to keep you living a servant of Allah.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:51

Brothers and sisters, let me go further now even smaller than the blood cells

00:26:52 --> 00:26:57

inside our cells, there is something called DNA

00:26:59 --> 00:27:04

deoxyribose nucleic acid DNA, it's what makes you up?

00:27:05 --> 00:27:08

How small is the DNA Do you think?

00:27:10 --> 00:27:11

Too small.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:19

I'll tell you a measure for those of you know a little bit about science. They are 2.5 nanometers in diameter,

00:27:21 --> 00:27:35

diameter. So they're actually strands DNA strands like strings. And they have and they've got a thickness like the hair. The thickness is 2.5 nanometers in diameter. I'll tell you what that means. A human hair,

00:27:36 --> 00:27:40

the human hair, it takes one hair out. See how thin it is?

00:27:41 --> 00:27:49

That human hair is about 100,000 nanometers wide.

00:27:51 --> 00:27:53

How many nanometers is the DNA?

00:27:56 --> 00:28:00

2.5 nanometers? How many diameters? Is your human hair?

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

100,000 nanometers.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

How small is the DNA now?

00:28:08 --> 00:28:19

How much thinner than your hair which is 100,000 nanometers. And the DNA strand is 2.5 nanometers by Yep, I'm having stopped there.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:25

What about the tiniest stuff that's inside the DNA strand now.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:34

The nucleotides, something called the mutants, and so on even smaller, smaller.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:44

II even tinier particles, then the mutants is called the protons even tinier.

00:28:46 --> 00:28:51

The DNA inside each cell is longer than you are.

00:28:53 --> 00:29:18

Each DNA inside each cell one strand if you were to take it out, because they're like coils, it's like bringing a string and you coil it together a coil that coil that coil and keeps coil and coil and calling upon coils. That's how the DNA looks like if you were to take it out and make a string and you put it from the floor upwards. It's taller, the new one DNA string inside of a cell. That's two meters tall one. Are you still with me? Or have I lost you?

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

There is even a tiny the tiniest thing ever discovered is called a cork. A cork it is 10,000 times smaller than a proton. Proton. How small is it smaller than the DNA?

00:29:43 --> 00:29:51

It's smaller than a nucleotide. Proton isn't one of them a smallest thing there is a quark which is 10,000 times even smaller than the proton.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:56

The DNA in every single cell stretches out.

00:29:57 --> 00:29:59

If you were to take all the DNA

00:30:00 --> 00:30:15

In all the cells of your body, every single DNA in your body that Allah has created in every cell of your body, and you stretch them all out and you tie them together. How far do you think they'll reach?

00:30:17 --> 00:30:17


00:30:18 --> 00:30:23

brothers saying that will go rotate twice around the world longer longer.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:49

You You just one human being this brother over here if I took all the DNA out of his body, from every cell in his body, and put it all together and stretched it out, how far will it reach brothers and sisters? This is the DNA which makes you the way you look. You are a human being all your features is made this DNA. How far has Allah put codes in there? How far can it reach? Brother is saying twice around the world higher.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:56

To the Moon higher higher. This is nothing means just here. Let's start going from here to COVID front to Broadmeadows.

00:31:00 --> 00:31:08

Are you ready to hear it? If you were to take out all the DNA strands from an average human being and tie it strip from one end to the other and stretch it out?

00:31:10 --> 00:31:17

My brothers and sisters it will equal twice the diameter of our entire solar system twice

00:31:19 --> 00:31:20

you know solar system

00:31:21 --> 00:31:23

you know our solar system brothers and sisters.

00:31:25 --> 00:31:27

How big is our solar system?

00:31:30 --> 00:31:51

Tonight I'm going to do a heading How big is our solar system? We have to appreciate Allah's knowledge and his power my brothers and sisters. The solar system is 18 billion kilometers wide 18 billion kilometers wide. The DNA strands are twice that size

00:31:53 --> 00:31:58

36 billion kilometers long.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:19

That's how DNA is this mighty Ron says here's what Allah says this is what makes you up. This is just the human that Allah created. He made you out of this little stuff that is larger than the entire solar system by twice my brothers and sisters. Allah says in the Quran, or the Koran, Bernie,

00:32:21 --> 00:32:26

we have truly honored the son of Adam. And then Allah says in the Quran, la holocausts

00:32:27 --> 00:32:30

Akbar woman caught up in

00:32:31 --> 00:32:36

the creation of the heavens, the sky is even greater than the creation of that little human being.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:50

My brothers and sisters, let me go a little bit further for you for some about something. Those people who don't believe in God, the atheists, ask them this question. Ask them this question.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:54

inside of us, we have a genetic code,

00:32:55 --> 00:32:57

the code that gives you your form

00:33:00 --> 00:33:02

which makes up the human being

00:33:03 --> 00:33:09

scientists, and Janet and geneticists have written the codes in a book in books.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:49

They compiled more than 175 volumes of books, how many volumes 175 volumes of books, they equal 262,000 densely printed pages 262,000 densely printed pages. And every single code of the human being is written in their letter by letter 262,000 densely printed pages letter after letter

00:33:50 --> 00:34:09

about the human genome, how the humans code, genetic code is about 500 of them make us all look different. The rest of it is all the same. Now here's the question brothers and sisters. Imagine taking just a few of those letters out. From when you are inside your mother's womb, just a few.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

You will have a deformity,

00:34:13 --> 00:34:41

you will have a disorder. And if you take out too much you'll die, though that's when they give you an abortion. These are called genetic diseases and disorders. It's when a little bit of coding a little bit of your genome or nucleotides are taken out. Everything about your changes Subhanallah everything about you changes from here to the solar system and back twice. If you just take out a little tiny ants size.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:59

You're no longer the same. You've got disorders and diseases. Among the diseases and alterations are things like they've got their color cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, albinism, others like schizophrenia, autism, and some fetuses that have to be aborted.

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

Allah says photometric Allah Who Arsenal Holly clean Glory to the to Allah, the best of creators.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:12

Let's go back to the verse of the Quran Did you not hear where Allah subhanahu wa Allah says,

00:35:13 --> 00:35:51

He knows what every womb carries. And he knows which has less and which has more meaning. Part of it is your genetic coding, which has less, which has more. You might say, Well, scientists now can look at your DNA and they can determine what you're going to look like we say, yes, they can. They've got 80% chance of knowing some things. And this is knowledge Allah had given us some of his knowledge. Allah says it gives you some of his knowledge. But can they know for certain number one, number two did they know before you were even conceived, and who was the one that created the code for you? We only look at what what there is, but who is the knowledgeable one, the creator, the innovator of all

00:35:51 --> 00:36:03

this He is Allah subhanho wa Taala ad. Now let us look at the universe. These are the small things, the universe 1.3 million Earths fit into the sun.

00:36:04 --> 00:36:12

You know the sun, see the size of our Earth 1.3 million Earths fit into the sun.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:16

Our solar system is 18 Billions kilometers wide.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:27

And our solar system is a speck inside of the Milky Way galaxy. Our Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light years in diameter.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:31

That's one and 18 zeros next to it.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:34

One and 18 zeros next to it.

00:36:36 --> 00:36:47

That's 1 billion trillion kilometers wide. Is this is the Milky Way. 400 billion stars, the smaller star you can fit 800 Earths in it

00:36:56 --> 00:37:01

the largest galaxy is 160 times wider than our own Milky Way.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:08

And there are 2 trillion galaxies like our Milky Way.

00:37:11 --> 00:37:14

In the observable universe, as far as scientists know,

00:37:15 --> 00:37:26

our universe is approximately 93 billion light years in diameter. one light year, my dear brothers and sisters is 300,000 kilometers per second.

00:37:27 --> 00:37:31

That's 9.4 6 trillion kilometers per year.

00:37:33 --> 00:37:52

Our universe is expanding. And they say that the age of the universe is approximately 13 point 8 billion years old. Allah created and Allah ordered and decreed and will every single atom and smaller than that and every single object and bigger than that,

00:37:53 --> 00:38:09

before He created it by 50,000 years, if we just took the scientific calculations and the Allah really knows if they got it right 1413 point 8 billion years ago and 50,000 years before that, in Allah's years.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:16

Allah had made the decree and Allah is the beginning and the end there is nothing before him and nothing after him.

00:38:18 --> 00:38:29

My brothers and sisters, Allah says in the Quran, or Maria Zuber became me scored in writing

00:38:32 --> 00:38:32


00:38:41 --> 00:38:42


00:38:48 --> 00:39:12

back about our eating, fee, kita baby in Surah Kunis, verse 61, Allah says, not even an atom's weight, is hidden from your Lord on earth or in heaven, nor anything smaller than the atom, or larger than the heavens, but is written in a perfect record.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:18

Even smaller than the atom, Allah has written it, where it's going to be and how it's going to be.

00:39:19 --> 00:39:27

And we sit here saying, Oh Allah, Oh Allah and things happen and go wrong. We can't make sense of it. We leave Allah altogether. Allah knows Yeah.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:41

If he knows the atom what's what's beneath him? What's happening inside he knows and he tells you don't worry, I'm with you. Just you you keep going. Rely on me. Even if things go wrong I know what's happening have your good trust in me

00:39:42 --> 00:39:59

straightaway lose the plot. My brothers and sisters. Allah says He has the keys to the unseen no one knows them but him he knows all that is in the land and in the sea. No leaf why matter? School told me what aka

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

No leaf falls without his knowledge Illa Allah Maha nor is there a single grain while I have button field Almighty, Walla Walla Walla, WA matter scotoma what rocketing Illa Allah Maha habit infield automatic nor is there a single grain in the darkness of the earth or anything fresh or withered. There is not written in a clear record. Brothers and sisters every leaf that is falling is written in a clear record and every atom and cell inside that leaf is written in a clear record. Everything is destined exactly as Allah spent Allah had had destined that brothers and sisters, Allah is tremendous. Do not give up stay with him when Allah He will guide you and be patient isn't here to

00:40:45 --> 00:40:55

Allah. He is the one who made the Quran and wrote the Quran spoke to the Quran and he is the one who guided us. So follow His guidance. There is no other guidance but Allah has guidance my brothers and sisters.

00:40:57 --> 00:41:36

Allah says in the Quran, Allah Allah Moolman Han Okawa who and luckily for Hobie does He who created not know what he has created? Does He who created not know what he has created? While Well luckily for Hubby, he is the most kind and careful hubby he knows everything of everything, not just knows it but understands it. Allah knows the ins and outs. Your brain My dear brothers and sisters is 2.5 million gigabytes of memory. How much is that compared to what Allah subhana wa does knowledge. Your eye has 324 million pixels

00:41:37 --> 00:42:27

of vision quality, your kidney 1.2 million filtration units. It filters 200 liters of fluid every 24 hours. When a person's kidney fails, they're taken to a procedure called dialysis in the hospital, a big machine and they put a needle inside of you and they take out blood into this machine for three or four hours while you sit there and it can only filter one liter per hour while you're sleeping dancing going coming working enjoying your kidneys are filtering 24/7 200 liters of fluid every 24 hours my dear brothers and sisters and he knows exactly what it's doing your veins in your body are 40,000 kilometers is a 40,000 Kilometer web. If you took all the veins in your body and your

00:42:27 --> 00:42:32

arteries and everything extended it there'll be 40,000 kilometers in this one human being

00:42:35 --> 00:42:41

then Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses us in another way now he can becomes intimate with us he says

00:42:42 --> 00:42:43

on our corridor

00:42:49 --> 00:43:00

doors will soon be enough soon enough no alcohol in aiming overly nobody need

00:43:01 --> 00:43:05

you easier Turner coil and Motorola clear

00:43:06 --> 00:43:12

meanie whiny Shima Leo coin made me

00:43:13 --> 00:43:20

feel Bowman calling in the Raleigh Boone it

00:43:22 --> 00:43:46

Allah says in surah Kahf verse 16 Shortly we have created man and we know the promptings of his heart. We know what you are whispering Allah says and what your heart is feeling, your emotions, your thoughts, your whispers, the feelings that you cannot even describe. Allah says he knows it. Allah says And We are nearer to him than his own jugular vein.

00:43:49 --> 00:43:57

Two angels on the right and left one is ever so watching one is ever so witnessing are writing everything they say and do.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:02

Not a single word does he utter except that is written.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:06

Brothers and sisters Allah knows. Allah knows.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:09

Allah says

00:44:10 --> 00:44:29

who will oh well well. He is the beginning and the end or VA hero while belting he is the manifest and the hidden at the same time. Well who will be couldn't be equally shy in alim. He has knowledge of everything. Nothing is hidden from him, and nothing manifests beyond him.

00:44:30 --> 00:44:54

That is when there was nothing he was and when there will be nothing he will be the best dA is the DA of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he said Allah Houma and tell a will Felisa Cobb laka shape. Oh Allah, you alone are the first none is before you. Wait until hero Felisa cache and you are the last none is after you

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

will enter war hero Felisa for caca shape

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

Are you alone are the exalted none is above you.

00:45:04 --> 00:45:19

What until what until about you know, fillet Sedona cache and you alone are the hidden, none is more hidden than you. The one who is so far yet so close, the One Who manifests everything, it is the most hidden

00:45:21 --> 00:45:22

subhanho wa Taala

00:45:24 --> 00:45:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala then says My dear brothers and sisters,

00:45:29 --> 00:46:14

he knows all that enters the earth and all that comes forth from it, and all that comes down from the heaven and all that goes up to it. He is with you, wherever you are, Allah sees all that you do, He is with you. Wherever you are, Allah sees all that you do. He is with you, wherever you are, every single being every ant that crawls on the rock, every human by yourself. Allah's hearing, does not get confused. Allah seeing is never confused. Allah has knowledge is never confused. Allah is telling you he is with you, wherever you are, meaning he's watching you. And at the same time, meaning he can hear you. You don't need to scream. You don't need to shout. You don't need to go

00:46:14 --> 00:46:33

anywhere specific. Some people say I've got to go to Macau I've got to go to hush for Allah to him. You know Nana, wherever you are, Allah is with your brother and sister. It means that Allah He is every single one of you in every one of your DUA and supplications. Some people I've heard say God is too busy for me, he's got too many things to look after Allah says

00:46:34 --> 00:46:58

Good luck to men who are efficient and every day Allah is doing something new. And Allah says in the Quran, there is no hearing that confuses with his hearing and no sight that it gets confused with him and no logic it confuses him every single one he knows exactly better than yourself. My brothers and sisters, Allah says in the Quran, or either sir loci over the

00:46:59 --> 00:47:05

knee for me clarity

00:47:06 --> 00:47:09

Huji Buddha awaited either

00:47:10 --> 00:48:02

failure stingy only when you mean who will be now lamium Sheldon and if My servants ask you about Me, I am always close. I will respond to the caller when they called upon me. So let them continue to always call upon me. In other words, Allah does not get tired of your call and he loves that when you continue to call upon him and let them respond to Me. And let them put their trust and secure their faith in me in the hope that they may reach salvation and guidance. My brothers and sisters Allah says in the Quran, we'll call our Boomer the Rooney walk on out of buku the Rooney a stingy vanilla, Kobe, and your Lord has declared and called out. Your Lord says, Call upon me supplicate to

00:48:02 --> 00:48:06

me I will respond to you. Allah also says while

00:48:10 --> 00:48:25

further being, he also gives you ideas. He says to Allah belong the most beautiful names so mentioned his beautiful names when you call upon him, Allah who loves you to get intimate with Him in this way. And when you call upon his name, you feel closer to him. subhanho wa Taala

00:48:26 --> 00:48:31

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Ustasha Boulia hottie Kemal me Arjun

00:48:33 --> 00:48:44

every single one of you your DUA will be responded to so long as you do not haste. So long as you do not want haste Hurry up God rush him.

00:48:45 --> 00:49:08

Allah says if he were to accept every dollar that you ask in the way that you want, there'll be nobody without any mercy left because what we want we don't know what's good for us. What hola hola hola more income letter hola Moon ALLAH knows and you yourself do not know why Santa crochet and Ohio Lancome you may hide something when it's good for you was sent to hippo che and Mahershala calm you may like something when it is bad for you.

00:49:10 --> 00:49:54

And also as salam said Ustasha Boulia howdy Kamal me Arjun you always get responded to for your dog so long as you're not haste number one Felco to TAO to file an IRA who Ustasha bullied Prasanna and says a person says I called and I called and I made da but nothing was responded to me via stats here. Then he starts giving up and I enter the liquor wire, the wire the outdoor there is it gets filled with despair. He gives up hope and then he stops making. The hadith is in Al Bukhari. Number six 340 Brothers and sisters, why should you not haste because the human being is created out of haste. We see something when Allah sees the opposite. There was a great Sahaba a great predecessor,

00:49:54 --> 00:49:59

I think it was hustle and bustle Allahu Allah, or maybe I'm mistaken, but one of the great predecessors among the tourbillion he said

00:50:00 --> 00:50:27

And when I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for something, and he gives it to me, I say and Hamdulillah he gave me what I wanted. And when he doesn't give it to me, I pray longer and I make more suitable to Allah out of thankfulness because what he did for me was his decision and not my decision. And I know that Allah's decision is a billion times better than my decision has to be better for me, because he knows what Allah decides for us much better for you.

00:50:28 --> 00:50:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala even responds to the dua of the disbeliever My dear brothers and sisters, did you hear what I said? The mushrik, the idolater. Even the atheist, Allah responds to their dua may respond to their dua even while they don't believe in Allah. How and what is my evidence? Allah says in

00:50:52 --> 00:50:55

surah Lookman verse 32.

00:50:57 --> 00:50:58

What either way she

00:51:01 --> 00:51:07

can lead law Hamill Have you seen Dean as a

00:51:08 --> 00:51:16

manager in battery famine point they'll see the family in

00:51:18 --> 00:51:22

more gluttonously Do one Niger had when we

00:51:26 --> 00:51:28

call no hot

00:51:29 --> 00:52:16

food, we which means as soon as they are overwhelmed by waves, like mountains, they cry out to Allah alone insincere devotion. But when He delivers them safely to shore, only some become relatively grateful, and none rejects our signs except whoever is deceitful, ungrateful. The area is talking in context of the disbelievers of Quraysh in Mecca, when he talks about them, and then he says and look at them, when I put them safely in the sea, and they ride on their boats and their and their big ships and their arcs. And then they see the wave start to come in a big storm hits them. People usually in the middle of the sea, when they say there's no one there to save them. Somehow their

00:52:16 --> 00:52:27

instinct kicks in and they say, Oh Allah, Oh God save us if you are really there. Allah says most people do that. They they just go into this automatic dua to God,

00:52:28 --> 00:52:51

no matter who they are. And when God saves them, they betray what they said they In other words, Allah is saying, they use they try to use their Lord for what they want. And then they don't fulfill their promises later on. Allah says the only ones who are ungrateful or those who don't believe in God. So even the disbeliever Allah respond to the if they call out to Allah sincerely and devoutly.

00:52:52 --> 00:53:23

My brothers and sisters, there's also a similar verse in chapter 29, verse 65, very similar to that one. And Allah Subhana Allah wants you to be honest to Allah, and to fulfill your promises with him and it's the only way that you will find salvation. The Prophet sallallaahu Selim says, lairs early Ustasha Abu Lahab Dima lumea Derbi ethminer okatie RT Rahim some people they say Why is my dua not being responded to brothers and sisters there are conditions to draw

00:53:24 --> 00:53:45

and here are some of the conditions that a person must avoid when they make dua. So be aware of them number one, Rasul Allah sallam said, a person's dua will continue to be responded to so long as he or she does not make a dua for something that is sinful and haram

00:53:47 --> 00:53:49

or Katia Torah him

00:53:50 --> 00:53:52

00:53:57 --> 00:54:18

and mail me astonishing so long as he doesn't Hastin come on God come on your coloca TAO to walk down to fella Mr. Chablis. It's like a person who says well I made so much DUA and nothing was responded men, Fiesta sedang lick it becomes loss of hope or your decoy dog die and then he abandons the diet altogether. The hadith is this idea hijack

00:54:20 --> 00:54:59

the prophets Allah Salam said Mahmoud Reza linea de Allah habit why in illustre Ji Bella every DA is responded to for him and you are Gela who feed dunya either your DUA will be responded to and given to you in this life. We're in your Dahar Allahu fil era or maybe Allah will postpone it to the here after. This is when Allah knows that your diet we're asking for may not be good for you here in this world. Had he given it to you be worse off he probably end up in Hellfire for it. Or maybe you lose your family or maybe something bad will happen to you. This is where your trust has to kick in and say maybe Maybe Allah has lifted for me for the hereafter. What Emmanuel kufra

00:55:00 --> 00:55:42

Anhu means the new behavior choroideremia da Oh Maybe Allah Subhana Allah will forgive some of their sins. Now this part it we're not sure if it's authenticity, but Allah does compensate you in some way. Mal me Adobe if means so long as you are not your DA is not for sin. Oh Katya RT Rahim or connect or disconnecting family ties or Hasting. They said the Rasul Allah, what does hastening mean? He said, a person says I called upon my Lord, but he didn't respond. The hadith is a Muslim number 2735 Brothers and sisters, and also SallAllahu Sallam forbids us from making dua on things that are haram. Here's some of the things that are haram, such as the same May Allah make you drink

00:55:42 --> 00:55:43


00:55:45 --> 00:55:48

May Allah bring Zina to me?

00:55:49 --> 00:55:52

May Allah cut your family ties off?

00:55:54 --> 00:56:11

May Allah do this or that to your parents? Some people they say, May Allah not forgive you. May Allah put you into hellfire. May God never put you into paradise. Brothers and sisters, we have no right to ask for these types of diet. These are laws actions.

00:56:13 --> 00:56:13


00:56:14 --> 00:56:19

if someone has been wronged someone wronged you, someone took your right.

00:56:20 --> 00:56:35

You can make a dua that is enough and equal to it. It's haram to make a dua against someone when they've taken as an insignificant right from you. Some people Subhan Allah,

00:56:36 --> 00:56:38

they have, I think, too much pride.

00:56:40 --> 00:57:10

They think that their dua as if they are prophets or something or saints, when somebody upsets them with something small, immediately they go for the worst of diet against them. Somebody swore at us, somebody upset you with something, somebody could have asked you just the question and the shaitan comes to your mix, you assume? Why did you ask me this question? May God never forgive you? May God put you in hellfire. May God let you see the worst in your life like what you've hold on to take it easy Subhan Allah you are not more merciful than Allah.

00:57:11 --> 00:57:21

This is haram brothers and sisters, the scholars have spoken about this. When somebody has hurt you with something small, it's haram for you to make tremendous dua against that person, you will not be accepted.

00:57:22 --> 00:57:51

Allah is merciful. And he will not oppress anyone. But if somebody took your right, that was something serious, you have a right to say, I will not forgive you. If you want. You may say May you get what you deserve from Allah. Allah come in Allah He matters to him. You have to use what you deserve from Allah. But to sit there and start making dua is upon dias. No, yeah. I don't think Allah is going to accept every dollar you say.

00:57:52 --> 00:58:24

I have the sometimes people they asked me a lot of people ask me the same question Allah He in our community, and they get scared Poor things. They say, well, Allah has someone, I made a mistake towards them. And I tried to apologize. And they made a tremendous diet. May God be angry with you says No, I'm afraid I don't know if my prayers accepted. I don't know if my fasting is accepted. Subhanallah where's the Rama? No mercy between us my brother and sisters a question a person could ask you a question say, Look, I just want to verify I heard something about you and say what you even believe like this. We may God do this to you and that to you know, yeah.

00:58:25 --> 00:58:58

And they'll never forgive. This is haram brothers and sisters. Don't use the DUA in that way. Have mercy and your DUA. Allah says, You are the owner who heard the whole from Wattana Adorno tadagra anima. Hosea, the way we call upon Allah brothers and sisters, is with humbleness, and with fear and with love. Is this a door of humbleness, fear and love? No, this is a door of ego and self entitlement. Allah doesn't accept these types of doors, unless you deserve it. Unless you deserve an Allah subhanaw taala only knows.

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

The DUA comes in three cases. Or asking, asking comes in three ways. The scholar said, if an older person like a parent, asked their child to do something for them.

00:59:15 --> 00:59:33

It comes out in the form of a question. But it's really a form of command. It's just the polite way that parents ask their children so when a parent asks their child to get them a cup of water, or to help them with something brothers, sisters, understand that Allah takes this as a command from your parents, you should respond.

00:59:34 --> 00:59:49

When you are the same age and the same type of people and you request something from your colleague, or someone that is equal to you. It's called a friendly request and equal request a favor. But when you ask Allah,

00:59:50 --> 01:00:00

that type of dua is humbleness, where Allah is the One who makes a decision. You have no right to make a complaint if a

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

Allah doesn't give you some people, this is how they are with Allah staford Allah Allah then they make it like God owes them something that make it like if they ask they stuck for us shutdown comes to them and think that Allah betrayed them.

01:00:14 --> 01:00:32

And they start getting angry. They start complaining, they start shouting. They start even having fights with chefs, chefs and scholars. You told me that God will respond, man, I don't even want this religion or I'm not gonna pray on stuff that or this or that I've heard people say that La Habra, this is Crawford Madiran says be careful.

01:00:33 --> 01:00:44

Allah doesn't owe you anything. Allah says Betty La Jolla, Munna, Alikum and hydroquin Islam it is Allah subhanaw taala that you owe that he has guided you. Brothers and sisters don't think shallow.

01:00:46 --> 01:00:48

Allah knows exactly what's going on.

01:00:49 --> 01:00:53

One person said to me, why would God want this so that I said listen, listen, listen.

01:00:54 --> 01:01:07

There's a Day of Judgment says I believe in a day of judgment. I said, don't you think Allah knows exactly what you're thinking? What you're going through, said yes, I know. You can take it up with Allah. I'm innocent. Just leave me alone. You gotta take it up with Allah. Allah knows exactly what you're thinking better than you.

01:01:09 --> 01:01:11

So brothers and sisters, be careful with this.

01:01:18 --> 01:01:41

causes for your DUA being accepted are the following number one, when you start your DUA with praising of Allah and sending Peace and blessings onto His Messenger, so you say hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad in one early he was sabe. Germaine that's a dua that has more strength and more weight in being responded to

01:01:42 --> 01:01:44

when you mean it from your heart.

01:01:45 --> 01:02:25

Number three, when you mentioned his name's O R Rahman. If you want His Mercy O L afar, forgive him if you want His forgiveness, or reserve the giver if you want something from him subhanho wa taala. It is best to use the Prophet Dias if you know them. Otherwise, say it in the way you understand. It's good to make dua in the last third of the night, it's good to make dua in the night it's still to make dua when you're in Sousou. It's good to make dua between then and karma. If you're at home, that when the time of solid comes until you start praying it's a good time to make dua in between. Or if in your in the masjid from then to the karma. It's good to make diet when it rains. It's good

01:02:25 --> 01:03:00

to make diet when you're traveling. It's good to make diet when you're fasting, while you're doing good deeds. If you're giving a charity, you're helping someone you're moving an obstacle off the road. You're even looking after a pet, even if it's a bird Subhanallah anything of good day that Allah has please make a dua in that time. Your dua is stronger when you're doing good deeds. It's good to make dua after you're fatigued solid. So you're making it the highest and everything right at the end before you say salam alaikum. So while you're in Salah, make a DUA, and even after Salah during Friday, the night before Friday, and so on.

01:03:02 --> 01:03:12

It's good to make dua and mention your good deeds. Let's say you remember a good deed in your past you helped someone or you donated and nobody knows about it. When you're making dua lift your hands up to Allah.

01:03:13 --> 01:03:47

And the Hadith says that Allah subhanaw taala does not like to return your hands empty. So Allah loves responding to you mentioned a good deed to Allah in secret that no one knows about. Maybe one time you heard about two people who are in conflict and quarrel over money. And you came in, and you assisted them to reconcile so they don't have a fight. And you secretly went to that person whom the money is owed to and you gave him the money from your pocket. And you said it's settled. And then you went to the other person and said, Brother Alhamdulillah, it's settled.

01:03:49 --> 01:04:25

You can pay me in installments. But don't say anything. And this was a tremendous little good deed. And then one day you're in strife and you say Oh Allah, if you know your Allah, you know that one day I did this, and I did that. Don't tell anyone about it. Keep it between you and Allah. That's why it's a good idea that said, if you've done a good deed, keep it between you and Allah, one day, you may need to use it. And Allah will not let your reward go. As soon as you tell people about it. If it's not for the purpose of teaching people, then you might lose your rewards. So keep it to yourself and use it in your DUA. There's a beautiful Hadith in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim about three

01:04:25 --> 01:04:51

men who got stuck in a cave from the children of Israel. And these three men when they got stuck, a storm hit them overnight and a big boulder covered the front of the cave. When they woke up, they didn't know they couldn't get out and they were stuck. So each three of them said Let's all sit in a corner and cry to Allah subhanahu wa ala with any good deed that you can remember. One of them he said Rasul Allah, Sam tells us one of them said, Oh Allah.

01:04:52 --> 01:04:54

I had old parents one time

01:04:56 --> 01:04:59

and I used to look after my family and children.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:13

From when they are in need, I would not leave my parents to go back to them so long as my parents are in need. And he looked, they looked that he looked after his children everything, but his parents who would not leave them until he did what they needed. He said one day they wanted milk.

01:05:14 --> 01:05:20

So I went and milk the animal. And when I came back there had fallen asleep.

01:05:21 --> 01:05:35

My children family were at home, they were asleep and okay, and I would not leave their sight I would not leave until they woke up. And I did not want to wake them up, because I didn't want to disturb them. My parents

01:05:37 --> 01:05:40

and then when they awoke, I gave them the milk.

01:05:42 --> 01:05:51

Oh Allah, if you knew that I did this for your sake. Then Save Us. So Allah made the stone move only a little bit, but it wasn't enough.

01:05:52 --> 01:06:21

Our parents Mighty Brothers and sisters. How would you feel if they were to leave this world, you would wish that they will come back just for five minutes to hug them and to say how much you love them. Brother and Sisters no matter what they are, what they've done, forgive them. But don't lose your Jana. Because of them. Look at this man in cyber Heidi, this hadith. Allah saved him. He said I stayed standing. I stayed in the night. I prevented myself sleep until they woke up because I didn't want to disturb them to wake up.

01:06:22 --> 01:06:32

The next day said the next man. He sat down and he said, Oh Allah, I had a cousin woman. She was pretty. And I loved her. And I wanted to marry her.

01:06:33 --> 01:06:34

And she refused.

01:06:36 --> 01:07:06

Sorry, I loved her. But I didn't marry her. And I wanted to do haram with her. He said that she used to look after some children. And I asked her for Xena to sleep with me in the Haram. She refused for the sake of Allah. One year later, she became desperate and poor and she had nobody to look after her. So I said to her, I'll give you this money and this jewelry. If you give me in return what I'm asking you for. And because she was desperate, she said okay.

01:07:07 --> 01:07:49

To look after the orphans. He said when I came to approach her before she took her clothes off, she said to me, I just want to say one thing, my cousin to fear Allah subhanho wa taala. And that if you want me, then only in Holland, only in Hull in the right way. This was obviously before Mohamed Salah salams time, he said something struck me in my heart. And I feared Allah and set a stop for Allah and walked away. And I kept the money in jewelry to her, Oh Allah, if you know that I did this for your sake, then save us. And the stone moved a little bit but not enough. The third man, he said, Oh Allah, I used to have a business of farming, business, livestock and wheat and crops. And I

01:07:49 --> 01:08:38

had people who worked for me employees. One day when the harvesting and everything finished. And my my animals got fed. I paid all the employees except one of them He left early before I can pay him and the man vanished. For two years or so. One day the man came back asking for his wage that I didn't give him Oh ALLAH. Instead, I felt that I owe him more than that, for I had made so much profit, and my livestock grew and I had more camels and more sheep and more goats and more cows. And I felt that it was necessary that I share this profit with him. So I said to him here is all the profit from your work. Take whatever you wish from your percentage. And he took an old Oh ALLAH if

01:08:38 --> 01:08:49

you knew that I did this for your sake, then save us until the boldo moved away and now we're saved. And this is what Allah met said use your good deeds that you have a secret between you and Allah.

01:08:50 --> 01:08:52

My brothers and sisters

01:08:54 --> 01:09:05

and also Salah Salam said that also a dua can be rejected. If you are a person who constantly earns their money and their wealth from haram

01:09:06 --> 01:09:31

always eats food from haram and drinks from haram and dresses from haram Rasul Allah wa sallam said, The Medaka Rajala up you know Sephora shatta Akbar. He mentioned the hadith is in Sahih Muslim, a man will be in the desert. He is dusting, he is in strife. He is in need. He turns his hands to Allah.

01:09:33 --> 01:09:50

And he says oh Allah. Give me my Lord. My Lord helped me. But his food is from haram. His drink is from haram. His clothing is from haram and he has been nourished all his life from haram for under Ustasha Bula. How is Allah going to accept from such a man's dua?

01:09:51 --> 01:09:59

This means brothers and sisters though lemma said it means that if ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala knows that you have had a habit

01:10:00 --> 01:10:34

Have asking Allah and then every time he looked after you, instead of using the halal you use what you asked him in Haram. You use these blessings in Haram. And you continue to ask Allah but you're not changing your ways. It comes to a point where Allah no longer gives you what you want. He no longer responds to your diet. Why would he give you when all you do is use it in Haram? Is this what Allah wants you to do? To put you more into hellfire to give you more sins and through the blessings He gives you? Allah does not accept accept purity. So brothers and sisters, if you find that look at your wealth, look at your money, look at your clothing, look at your nourishment, where's it coming

01:10:34 --> 01:11:12

from? And repent to Allah maybe this is the thing between you and your dog. And there is a beautiful end that with this beautiful Hadith. The hadith is in also Bukhari and Muslim, about three men one was bold. One was a leper, leprosy had the disease in his skin and one was blind. The first one he had sheep, the second one, he had cattle, and the third one, he had camels. This is how we made business from the children of Israel. The prophets of Allah Salam said, One day, the first man woke up and all his hair had fallen off suddenly. And he used to be a man of pride and arrogance. He thought that all this wealth is from my own work. He never gave him charity. And every time God

01:11:12 --> 01:11:24

bless them, he used the inheritance. So one day he lost all his hair, he became bald, and he had beautiful hair before that he used to people used to come to him for some reason, because of his looks. So his looks a little went away, and suddenly his business dropped.

01:11:25 --> 01:12:03

Subhanallah the second person, he suddenly woke up, it became leprous. He his skin had this lepers disease. And as a result, his business became bankrupt. And the third person became blind and his business became bankrupt. So Allah subhanho wa Taala sent an angel to each one of them an angel, which they could see. And he said to the first person, the second person or third person, if Allah gives you back your blessings, your hair, your skin and your eyesight, will you remember his blessings and use it in halal and giving charity to the poor and the needy. They said, we promise we promise we promise. So Allah subhanaw taala gave them back their wealth and their looks and

01:12:03 --> 01:12:43

everything. years later, the angel came back to them in the form of a poor, homeless man. And he said to the first men who had lost his hair first he said, Please give me something of this tremendous wealth that you have in order for me to get to my family, because I'm a homeless man. And he said, Go away from me. He was harsh to him. All this wealth is from my own knowledge and from my own education and from my own struggles move away. He said, once you one day ever, like me, didn't you ever go through hardship like me one day, it said Never. Even if I went through it, it was just temporary. There's just happens to everybody. So the angel said, Oh Allah return him to the way he

01:12:43 --> 01:13:26

was. He didn't fulfill his promise. The second person did exactly the same thing. And Allah said to him, return him to the way he was. Only the man who became blind and Allah gave him his eyesight back. He said to him, Subhan Allah, I was one day like you, and ALLAH SubhanA wa ALLAH blessed me when I had repented. Take whatever you wish from all my wealth, leave it or take it for Allah subhanaw taala is my provider. And the man said to him, I am the angel who came to you before you have fulfilled your promise to tell you, Allah wants to say to enjoy your wealth, and your entertainment with your wealth, and you will have both the rewards of this world and in the next

01:13:26 --> 01:13:32

summer brothers and sisters, this is how the DUA and shutter low be accepted. Finally, brothers and sisters, I want to say this.

01:13:34 --> 01:14:03

My brothers and sisters, never make dua against yourselves. Never make dua against your children. Never make dua against your parents and family. Never make dua against your wealth and your business. But also I sell them said ASA and to worship women, Allah He sat at the new Stasia booth, he had to opt for Ustasha Bula. You may arrive at a time when Allah accepts your DUA and he will respond to it exactly as you asked for.

01:14:04 --> 01:14:42

Meaning that sometimes the DUA may hit right. And you make a diet against yourself you did it to yourself. Allah says one other alumna whom Allah can and cannot enforce on the moon they did not would not oppress them they oppress themselves. Parents do not make dua against your children, you will regret it. Don't make dua against your parents. But don't be hasty against your friends against anybody brothers and sisters. Be careful had that even even the companions said the Rasul Allah curse the disbelievers he said I was not sent Allah and I was not sent a cursor Subhanallah curse the enemies is I was not sent a cursor. Can you imagine that? And he said, Don't curse your

01:14:42 --> 01:14:59

belongings. Don't curse your animals, your pets. Don't curse your beloved your objects don't curse. This is not what a Muslim does. My brothers and sisters. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that this lesson has benefited us in some way. There was really one more thing I wanted to talk about, but

01:15:00 --> 01:15:06

You're probably tired. Can I say it or just two minutes? It's really important I see it brothers and sisters look.

01:15:09 --> 01:15:18

Allah subhanaw taala may take something away from you sometimes he may give you a loss. Sometimes he may think that he is punishing you

01:15:19 --> 01:15:20

don't think like that.

01:15:21 --> 01:15:32

Sometimes you may think God is not there for you. Don't ever think like that. I want you always to remember this one. And this particular incident helped me brothers and sisters, you will know hamdulillah

01:15:33 --> 01:15:56

what happened in my tragedy? I lost my son and my brother. Rahmatullah Lee, Hema, and a lot of you have lost your family members, too. I know that some of you, and it's not easy. All our brothers and sisters around the world. I want you to remember this particular incident always in South Africa, if you know the story of Musa and another

01:15:57 --> 01:16:27

story of Moses, and the righteous man, Allahu Allah, and we don't know if these names will have it. But this is what we go by. That the lemma says probably a man named 100. And you will know quickly the story. Allah subhanaw taala said to Moses Musa alayhis salam, there is a man whom we have given more wisdom and knowledge than you, which you do not know of the unseen. Musa alayhis salam was known for his toughness.

01:16:28 --> 01:16:30

And at the same time,

01:16:31 --> 01:16:46

he became impatient with anything that was displeasing to Allah. He wouldn't hold very quickly. Even so that the promise of selling Mr. Say Musa alayhis salam was a man of toughness, and that's what his people needed,

01:16:47 --> 01:17:24

but only for the sake of Allah. So Musa alayhis salam, he was also humble. And he said, Oh, my Lord, show me where he is. So I may go and learn from him from what you have taught him. Nobody is ever too big for knowledge, brothers and sisters, and who is this man, nobody knows who he is. And he is the messenger of ALLAH from only Lasan. Musa de Sena. So he went to him and Allah Subhana Allah tells him in the Quran, the story is long you will find him at this particular place and so on. Anyway, in the end, he meets him and Musa alayhis salam says to him * at Tabea, aka Allah and to eliminate Nima or Limca. Rashida Will you allow me to follow you, as my mentor, to teach me from

01:17:24 --> 01:17:25

what your Lord has taught you?

01:17:26 --> 01:17:32

From what Allah has taught you of goodness and guidance? Immediately the man sits to him.

01:17:33 --> 01:17:51

It didn't even ask who he is. He just listened to him. Can I follow you to teach me from Allah taught you immediately it says, Learn to study I admire Sabra. You're not gonna be able to be patient with me. Bank just like that. No ands ifs or buts no introduction, no politeness, you won't be able to handle it.

01:17:53 --> 01:18:23

Musa Selim got a little bit offended here, it seems, from the context of the verse says, honest to God insha Allah who saw Bira you will see me Allah willing among the patient ones. When I asked in a camera, I want to survey anything you tell me. Like he's pleading to him. Immediately he says to him for any type of attorney. Okay? If you follow me, for notice only on shape? Don't you dare ask me a single question. Had the data come in who the crowd until I decide the right time when I will tell you.

01:18:25 --> 01:18:26

He said You have my word.

01:18:28 --> 01:18:29

And so he went with him.

01:18:30 --> 01:18:55

The story goes on. There were some poor people who worked on the sea with a with a boat, and the boat was a little bit how you're going. They went on to it. They looked after them, they fed them. They gave them a room at the bottom of the deck. They were very generous to them. And how that goes down with Moses to the bottom of the deck and what does he do? He takes out an axe or whatever and he begins to break and destroy and ruin their boat.

01:18:56 --> 01:19:35

Musa alayhis salam knowing that he is a prophet of Allah and the one who cannot handle displeasing Allah he says What have you done? Look at the CHE Anambra. You've done something terribly outrageous. These people were correct were generous to us and you come and destroy their boat. What is this? He immediately system color lm acqualina calendars Tatianna is sobre deny say you will not be able to handle and be patient with me Musa Sam then remembered immediately says called enter to f is navy mana seat. Please don't hold me accountable for what I forgot who Allah to hit him in Umbria Austro and please don't do my head in. Don't keep talking to me and give me a lecture about I

01:19:35 --> 01:19:36

learned my lesson. Slippy girl has

01:19:38 --> 01:19:39

nothing else.

01:19:40 --> 01:19:45

The men stayed quiet. They went afterwards they travel and then they reached

01:19:47 --> 01:19:48

a young boy.

01:19:49 --> 01:19:53

Probably nine or 10 years old, young boy walking across

01:19:55 --> 01:19:59

the man goes up to the young boy Hello How were you?

01:20:00 --> 01:20:01

And then he kills him

01:20:02 --> 01:20:03

immediately kills him.

01:20:05 --> 01:20:10

Musa alayhis salam couldn't hold himself. This is even worse than the boat issue.

01:20:11 --> 01:20:54

It's kind of a cartel Donaldson behind enough sin, the CHE and lucra you've just killed an innocent soul. When he hasn't killed that he hasn't done anything. You have done something that is totally unacceptable, outrageous, immoral. Then he says an awkward Leca in Nicola Anastasia Maya sobre. The man adds one more word, but it's harsh and very short. He said to him, Did I not tell you before to you? So it's getting a bit harsh like Leca to you that you will not be able to be patient.

01:20:55 --> 01:21:05

Musa and then remember as he says, color inside to convey in bada Fela to Sahib says listen, if I ask you one more question, you have a right to kick me out.

01:21:06 --> 01:21:07

He knew what he had done.

01:21:08 --> 01:21:46

Called Bella Mila dunya Audra. I don't have any more excuses. You're right. So then they entered a land, a town, that town they were very harsh to them. They didn't give them any food. They didn't give them any shelter. And we know the Wayfarers. You're supposed to look after the bunnies. People were extremely rude, obnoxious to them, and they insulted them kick them out. As they were walking out and getting kicked out of the town. The man and Heather saw a wall from a building that the people were trying to rebuild, but they were struggling with it is about the fall. So he goes and starts helping them.

01:21:47 --> 01:21:57

Now Musa looks at Ali Salam and he says so he helps him and after they finished he says to him very quietly called Hello ship that the hasta la Hazara

01:21:58 --> 01:22:13

if if you wanted to at least you could have taken some money for what we help them with. I mean they will harsh to us just take nothing wrong taking some money on help us because Carla fear Albania ouabain Nick says that's it. No more companionship between us.

01:22:16 --> 01:22:19

That's it, you got no more excuses. You couldn't be patient off you go.

01:22:20 --> 01:22:59

You're not a good student. That's in other words, Jani. He didn't say that. But he says you're not you're not able to handle stuff like this most more. salicin says that look, before you go, I will tell you the meanings of all these three, so that you will learn that Allah Allah Allah, Allah says will follow Coco luthi. Kulu, the element Halim, every person is knowledgeable, there's someone even more knowledgeable, and Allah is the most knowledgeable. He says to him, as for the boat, or the ship that we embarked, as you can see, they were poor people that were good people. And their route, the route that they go on, they have to go past a particular town, they've got no other choice. And

01:22:59 --> 01:23:37

on in that town, there currently has now become a king. There is a king on that route, who is oppressive, he is taking every good looking ship and good looking boat, he takes it off its owners and doesn't pay them anything. And as you can see, they were already doing it hard and had he taken their boat, they would have been homeless on the street and died of hunger or something like that. So I wanted to make their boat look like it's ruined, just something light, so that the king leaves their boat alone when he sees it. And they continue to go on their route and they don't have to, you know, stop getting their provision.

01:23:39 --> 01:24:08

He said As for the second issue with the boy, he said, their parents, his parents will righteous mothers and that it was a he had a righteous mother and father. And yes, that boy didn't do anything. However, he was going to grow up to become a tyrant, of disbelief over his parents. And he was going to cause them oppression and a heart ache and badness and evil.

01:24:09 --> 01:24:59
