Due to a law, a lot of Peace and blessings, last prophet Mohammed
from the law
and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day
I will leave questions concerns the gym
the discussion after
a brief presentation which I'd like to give
or could be looked at as some reflections
on the greatest
one occasion to one of his companions within the masjid, along with him,
he liked him to teach him the greatest
then, as he was about to leave the master the companion or the hold of him again enough to
and he told him
that the greatest song
we're practicing Muslims
17 times a day.
I would like us to reflect somewhat on the meaning
of this world,
because it is a food allergy. So,
it is one which we are repeating 17 times a day more than any other
It was the growth chart chapter.
Because the essence of the meanings of the Quran are contained in this chapter.
Because of that, this chapter is also known as
the essence of the book
which means the opener, because it is the opening chapter
we are obliged to resize the frame
shape on it.
I seek refuge in the law
from faith and reject.
Why? Because a lot of Hallo Allah has commanded us
to seek refuge in
commandments whenever we are going to read beforehand
in the law,
why? Because the law has set out the banana shape on the regime and if land
which there is no doubt
guidance for those who fear
the plan is the greatest book of guidance
The prs book guide
the evil forces led by Satan
will strive their hardest
to keep us from benefiting from this guide.
They will try to distract us,
they will try to discourage us
from keeping this book of guidance,
in practical use in our lives on a daily basis,
we are encouraged to read
as much as possible
one will read one letter of the book,
get 1010 good deeds recorded.
And he said what he meant when he said one word or one letter.
He did not mean that mean
for the letter, but that was a letter, lamb was a letter, and means that
in order to encourage the companions and later generations of Muslims to read as much
the government says
to his companions,
So they were encouraged to read
as much as possible, so that they would be in touch
with God message to man,
the guidance, they will be in touch with that guide.
By reading the Koran on a regular basis,
they will read it
and absorb its meaning and put it into practice as a companion,
to learn the Quran, five verses at a time, no more, and five verses that
I wouldn't go to another five verses, until we had understood all of what Allah has commanded us.
And it tries to put them in.
So he was the encouragement which the Prophet
that we should read,
you have your circle for each of you reading the Quran.
In the circle here, in the mornings when you get up in your home, make it a part of the regular
life of your home, as you're reading the Quran, but reading the Quran,
reflecting on its meaning
is what is intended to read
and reflect on the meaning
not merely to power, the Arabic sound
but to read
and reflect on the meaning. So that you may apply the Word of God and be blessed.
Because if you need in the Quran, where Allah says don't do this, and you're doing it, then you're cursing yourself.
So it is important that you know what it is telling you. You must read it,
understand it and apply it.
A law speaks about those people
who don't apply.
What what information we have.
So we seek refuge in Allah.
We seek refuge in Allah.
When we pick up the Quran, to recite it all when we stand to recite and follow
to protect us from the evil 40 which would seek to divert us
I'm not talking about this on a metaphysical level,
a philosophical level,
I'm talking about this, on a very practical level.
you've all experienced,
picking up the poor and in your home with the intention of reading the code.
And I'll see you open the plan and you read a few verses, you find yourself starting to yawn, you know,
you read a little more, you find yourself again,
and you start to think, and I'm tired. You know, maybe I should read this later.
Or you get up to stand to pray, when you start to pray, finding some youin
before he started eating Thai, before he stood up the
yawning is from
something coming out of my head.
That yawning is funny.
So when you yawn, cover your mouth, and try to be like him in a shape or
something. She understands that the efforts of Satan to try to disturb us, to distract us from the guidance is something which is very practical, very real, and not something nearly philosophical. So when you say I will be learning in a shape on the regime,
we should say, knowing what we're saying, believing what we're saying, not to say I'm glad
to be laggy, Nina shaytani.
then it will be of benefit.
we begin to dismiss
the name of Allah.
Mercy encompasses all
whether man deserves his mercy theory doesn't allow as much.
who has saved 99 parts of his mercy for the believers on Yama.
As I said, When Allah created mercy, he divided up into 101 parts he sent down on the earth,
which is so great. It is what causes an animal
to lift the foot from his yard, it doesn't put the foot down and he was Sonia.
The other 99 parts are saved for the believers, a normal pair
then going to teach us how to pray.
How do we call on Omar? How do we turn to Him?
Do we stick our hands up and say God, I need a new car.
I need a new wife.
Allah tells us that we start by thanking and praising
him for what he's given us.
We have to remember the same thing so that we don't become discontent in this life.
When people forget about the mercies of God, then they become discontent. You know, why can't I have a nice car like
why can't have a nice wife let's
They can't see the good in what they have is why partners.
Don't look at those above you. Don't look at those above you.
Look at those
because it is better for you to help you remember a lot of mercy
because there's always somebody worse off than you are
and we pay homage to His Majesty.
the Lord follower
was mercy encompasses all.
most of his mercy is saved for the believers and young
Maliki oma de,
to whom everyone will have to come and answer
on the Day of Judgment.
We have to check ourselves in this life.
that when time comes to die,
we will be able to stand you for a long day of judgment,
commands us to confirm
in his unity,
cannot do you alone, do we wish
you didn't say, we worship you?
It could have been that way in our nambucca
we worship You, but he didn't.
He taught you before
and had to say you alone to worship? Yeah.
Because when you say,
we worship You, it could mean we worship you and worship for worship.
But what the Lord wants us to confirm is that it is a law alone.
It is a law alone on who we call,
we only call on the law
one time and we only seek help from a law in our times of calamity
when no one around us can help us
we call out on a law alone.
And even when we seek help from those around us, we do so believing in our heart
that help will come through that person
by the will of the law, it will still be a law.
If a law has ruled this man to help me then I will be helped. If ally is not willing, if the law does not wish, that he cannot help me
That is what we hold in our hearts.
Otherwise, that we can fall into the weakness of believing that it is this person who can actually help.
And of course, when you have that kind of a faith in a lot of creation, then when it disappoints you, your face shattered.
Your face is shattered.
So we worship Allah Allah.
We call a law alone.
We seek help, ultimately in a law
there are a lot of jobs
now to keep after you, thanks a lot.
pay homage to his way to
recognize your responsibilities confirmed his oneness.
in word and indeed then you know,
the most important thing that you can ask for
guidance in dinner.
This is the most important thing.
It is the one thing that will carry us apart. Everything else we asked for is useless. We die and we can't take it with us.
The only thing that we can take with us is guidance.
If we have found the syrup, and Mr. Cream, then we have found the essence of what this life is about.
So this is the most important thing that we should.
And a lot of goes on to explain to us what is is still optimal. So also levena and Anjali, the path of those on whom is your blessing.
And allow us to identify and describe this path as being the path of the Prophet,
the righteous, the truthful.
And he goes on
to say, that it is not the path of
those on whom is his Roth
IRA him, nor those who have gone straight with a bar lien.
Now, the Prophet Muhammad told us,
that, Allah, Allah him,
are the Christian, by the Jews,
and the bonnin, as a Christian.
So, the path of the righteous, the truthful, the path of the prophets, and not the path of the Jews and the Christians.
Why is it specified, not the power of the Jews and the Christians?
About the Jews that we have to be aware of?
have knowledge, they had the Torah,
they fill out
the cages in it.
But the essence of it is that they have
but they don't follow.
enough, I've been dealing with and Sona and
you call people to righteousness, forget yourself.
They have the knowledge. They talk about it, and they don't do it.
They hide the knowledge, woman and level, man ketema habit in endoluminal law, there is nothing worse on this earth than he
who hides a witness which he has received from a law
that knowledge has to be given.
Not only in words, but in action. It has to be lived. Because if you tell somebody to do something, and you do something else,
then you're telling that person that you really don't need to do that.
Because it is so good. It's so important, why aren't you doing it?
If you have knowledge, and you don't apply it, then you are cursed.
You are cursed,
allows Ross is on you, you become among the most
thing that we can say and having a loss curse.
We seek refuge from the wrath of the law.
So it means that whatever knowledge we have, we have to apply it when we look at the Muslim world today.
And we wonder why are Muslims in the state that they are?
Why are they in such a terrible state?
The world is using the Muslim nations as their doormat.
They clean their shoes on it before they walk in the home.
This is a Muslim nation the door mass on the world
when you go to the average Muslim you ask him anywhere in the world. What are the five pillars of Islam he says the sun versus China day
to deal with
five pillars in Islamic
when you look into his life
is not praying five times a day.
He prays maybe ramadan
praying enough during the rest of the year.
Salim said Allah definitely been an hour away
from and terra
The distinction between us and the disbelievers is Salah.
abandoned this, from Antarctica Ha.
Whoever abandons the prayer becomes a cafe.
This is an authentic statement of the Prophet.
This is not the opinion of one scholar and you know, which may be different from the opinion of another scholar.
One who abandons prayer,
and turns into
abandoning prayer means the time for prayer come, and you deliberately do not go and pray.
You are able to pray and you deliberately do not go through it and
you're in the market, you're buying and you're selling. The time for prayer comes in businesses good. And you sell out.
You deliberately abandon the prayer,
you fall into
So the five pillars of Islam
as a Muslim faith,
were collected conscientiously
among the Gulf States alone
we would have enough Well, for the most in the world
it's pointless to point the finger at the Gulf states,
the states Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, collecting the cacophony and sending it over here
Why? Because we have the Gulf states here
we have some chance here. They may not be
maybe their number shapes or their you know, whatever other ship but a millionaire
millionaire with huge amounts of money
and enough pain.
So why point the finger there, we got it right here.
Now, as you say, you got to clean up your own backyard before you go looking at other people's backyard.
there's a lot of go to versus when the allies have established
the kind of not being paid.
How can we expect the best
nor should we be like
the Christians who have no knowledge
but they are the Gospels, the Gospels, the jumbled mumbo jumbo of you know people writing this stuff, the other
maybe a few sentences that actually came from from Jesus is
the writings of Paul. confusion.
calling them to idolatry
is what they have no guidance. So what happens there?
which leads to hell.
If you're ignorant,
then you're going to worship other than God.
If you don't know who God is,
then you're going to worship other than God.
To the Christian,
the Buddhists, Hindus

that's why it's lamb
says that you have to seek knowledge.
Of those who knows you don't know.
Balance seeking knowledge is compulsive.
This is what we have to do.
We cannot walk alone in this life ignorant of what Allah has commanded us.
And feel that we were going to be saved. Because we have some piece of paper which says, We are Muslim,
a Muslim name.
That means we have a ticket to paradise.
Don't think that a Muslim name is a ticket to fire.
Because the same name that you call Muslim name, you had Arab.
Going To hell with those same names.
names which carry with
choosing to be Muslim,
choosing to be true Muslim.
And doing what Omar has commanded,
doing more alive
and avoiding whatever he is doing.
It means we have to know what He commands. We have to know what the problem is. It is our duty to find out what it is that a law wants from us in this life. Allah created us for his worship, martial arts in Genoa inlandia.
He didn't create the jinn or mankind except for worship.
And the worship is doing what is pleasing to Allah.
Whatever we do, believing that it is pleasing to Allah,
this is worship of Allah.
It will be acceptable to Allah, if it is pleasing to Him.
If it is not pleasing,
then no we may call it worship.
It is not true worship.
Only what is pleasing to Allah is acceptable.
And that is the essence of tumors.
And what is pleasing to Allah.
Allah promises in the plan with general principles to know
a guideline for us to know any time anywhere in our lives, not something we're doing. We know something we want to do something we're talking about doing.
More than Oh, it is pleasing to allow notice be pleasing to Allah. Allah says we're in tune to una la factary Rumi.
It's all about to say
you want to do things which are pleasing to Allah, because you do things that are pleasing to the one you know, I mean, the guy who you consider to be your enemy, you don't do things pleasing to Him, unless he's got a gun at your head.
Otherwise, you do things pleasing to the one who you love.
Tell them to tell us in the
Follow the Prophet Mohammed from aligning with them, and the law will love you.
This is why the law would love us when we follow the Prophet Mohammed de la while he was alone.
And how do we follow the Prophet Mohammed sunrise Allah
we follow it, follow the problems as soon as the problems
by knowing that sooner
by being sure that whatever we do, was what the prophet Muhammad taught us to do.
meant to say and you're caught in a lie, he elaborate our emoticons in our emoticon v.
I have not noticed anything,
which will bring you closer to alarm except that I have told you to do it.
Very important tip
that we need to make the foundation of our Islamic being methoxy
I have not left anything, you probably will come Elahi which will remain closer to a loss in lower amount of two combee except that I have told you to do it.
So if you find anything
Without the Prophet Muhammad, Allah has not told you to do
which you think is pleasing to Allah, then don't do it.
Do not do it.
Because it's not pleasing to Allah.
What is pleasing to Allah is not what we feel what we think, when he said, you know,
what's also said, what our parents did
what they do in Arabia, you know, this is not what defines what is pleasing to Allah. What the Prophet Muhammad SAW, seldom told us to do. This is what is pleasing to Allah.
And we need to know that what we're doing is what he told us to do. That's why he said,
Amina Malaika, move forward,
whatever adds something new
to our fear,
that is not accepted.
It is rejected.
It is thrown back in our faces.
And he also said
that whoever starts an evil sooner is an evil and evil sinner is something connected to the religion, which the Prophet Muhammad SAW someone did not tell us to do,
to stop the sooner
you start this thing going
he will receive
the burden of sin, for everyone will follow that sooner until your pm.
So we have to be very careful.
Can we do something
and it is not been approved of by the prophet Muhammad, Allah.
Because it doesn't end with us. Because everybody who follows us, their sin will be piled on our backs. On the day of judgment,
it will be a big surprise.
And who wants to be surprised by a mountain of sin and the day of judgment?
So very important,
that we worship along
based on knowledge of what is pleasing to Allah,
and not what we think, what we feel. This is what the Christians do. You know, they will go from one set to another set based on what pleases them, you know, they go into one church in the year a minister is singing some songs and if he has the spirit of this song, I'm here. And after a while, we get tired and he goes nuts on the spirit here. He just goes according to what Keith has done, what feels good.
Now, this is not Islam. Islam is what the prophet Muhammad commanded us to do.
And what he prohibited us from doing
was meant to enable the army will lead to look at
today I have perfected for you your religion.
The religion is complete.
When a person brings something new in the village and what is he saying, I was wrong.
To complete, I had to come along 1400 years later and complete something missing. Here it is.
Either that or they're saying they know more than

when we look at the Muslim world today,

all across the Muslim world.
Go to many matches with great

Because they don't realize

So they're following status,
