00:00:01--> 00:00:18

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Ana de he'll carry him and he of global solar to automata slim, rubbish roughly suddenly way acidity under the rock that Emily Sonia Kohli, my brothers and my sisters ascend Mr. Ajay Kumar.

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

cattle. I hope that everyone is doing well today in sha Allah, it is the 13th night. Yeah, 13th Night of the month of Ramadan. And we are in the middle of the sort of abuse of Allah has sent him the story of use of Friday has sent him and we hope to, you know, cover this was sort of divided into in chat about the data.

00:00:48--> 00:01:17

I also I'm going to ask if you feel there's a need to continue doing q&a sessions. If not, then that gives us more time for our to see him and less time for q&a. Or maybe we can dedicate, you know, every other day to some q&a inshallah, because I really don't like rushing through it. And I don't like rushing through answering people's questions, and I don't like rushing through teaching. And it just is what it is. So just let me know what you think in the comment section and Siobhan.

00:01:20--> 00:02:02

Today, we're going to continue from where we left off. So yesterday, we said that we would continue from where use of it his sentiment is in the home of the as he is and the wife of the minister she wants to prove to the women of society because some rumors had started to, you know, circulate within society that she, you know, was having an affair or something was happening within the home. And so she wanted to prove to them that, you know, to the other women in society that use Savannah, who sent him was extremely good looking and it is difficult for someone who would be in her situation to, you know, to basically, you know, not get in or to, you know, just control themselves.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

And you know, the beauty of it when you think of Islam,

00:02:07--> 00:02:42

and how the profits on longer AlLahi wa sallam through what Allah subhanho wa Taala has legislated, taught us about our Deen, you know, this situation technically wouldn't arise, it wouldn't happen if we, you know, just follow the Sharia of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course, that which is found within the Quran. So my brothers and sisters that we see that use of it, his son is in the home of the Minister and the minister of the White House, or the minister of the wife, the wife of the minister, invites the women of the town to come over and to, you know, be with them and have some food, okay.

00:02:44--> 00:03:21

And she invites them over, and they come in and they're served, you know, a plate of something fruit and so on. And, you know, as they're told, you know, typically, when you're invited to someone, you know, who is noble, you're invited to their place, you don't just, you know, sit down and start eating and help yourself, you come in, you sit down, there's protocol, and you wait for it. I remember when I was a student, in Medina, we used to go sometimes to, you know, visit some of the princes, we used to, you know, sit in their in their gatherings, and we would walk in and sit down and wait, and then you know, they would come in, sit down, they would speak to us, and then you

00:03:21--> 00:03:37

know, food or refreshments would be served. And then, you know, we'd have a discussion. And then some more refreshments, like dates, and coffee and tea and stuff like that. And then food would be served afterwards. And, you know, everyone would then be told, okay, you can proceed to having food. So we go and eat food.

00:03:39--> 00:04:05

And so the wife of the minister, you know, she invites these women over and the food is in front of them. And then she says, okay, you may begin. And so they begin and as they pick up the fruit or whatever they're about to eat, you know, the wife commands us have an incentive to come out and walk in front of them. Okay, so he comes out and he walks in front of the women, and when they see him, you know, they're in such awe, like, wow,

00:04:07--> 00:04:41

that, you know, they have the, they're holding like a knife or something in their hand, and they end up cutting, you know, themselves, they don't cut their hands off. Some people misunderstand this. And they think that, you know, they cut their heads off. No, they didn't cut their hands off. They just, you know, the knife just slipped and like, you know, like, it's basically a wake up call a loss of handling data waking us up. So sometimes hardship is a good thing, right? Because you're looking at something you're not supposed to be focusing so much on. And then a loss of hanaway data makes that nice slip. And it reminds us Ouch, I did something wrong. I suffered a lot of stuff that

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

a lot of stuff for a lot. And so, you know, the women they were like, Oh, this, you know, he's like an angel. This is amazing. This guy is just next level. So Canada.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

So the minister he felt you know what, this isn't right. Like this is gonna create issues. Now society is talking about it. So he ended

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Up imprisoning us Nevada has set up. Long story short, Yusef is in prison, there's two other inmates with him, both of them have dreams use of Allah, his son interprets both of their dreams. When they get out one of them, he ends up being one of the servants to the king,

00:05:17--> 00:05:37

or an advisor to the king. And so use of Allah has sent them over some time, he's still in prison, and the king has a dream. And he sees, you know, seven cows that are really big, you know, as in have eaten well, and seven that are really skinny, and so on and so forth. And he wants his dream interpreted. And so the

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

typical, you know, behavior, anyone who is going to be an advisor to a king, or an assistant to a king,

00:05:46--> 00:05:55

or even a servant to a king is going to want to, you know, get recognized so that they can move up in rank, okay, society was all about ranks.

00:05:56--> 00:06:22

And so the person who was in prison with use of it has sent him who was released was working for, you know, the king, he says, Well, I know someone that can interpret your dream. And he's an honest, truthful, trustworthy person. And so the, you know, the advisors that were there, they're like, we don't understand what this dream means. And he says, I'll go and get you the answer for the dream. So he goes to us to find a senator who's still in prison. And he asks us to interpret the dream

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

is a valid set of asks about his honor. Right?

00:06:30--> 00:07:08

So, you know, he doesn't, he interprets a dream. And then, you know, he goes back, and then the king is amazed by this, and he summons him and use it to his son Emma's like, No, no, no, I don't get out of jail free, right? I don't, I'm not just gonna be released from prison, because I interpreted a dream, I want to be released from prison because I was innocent, and they didn't deserve to be in prison in the first place. And that goes to show us the patience of use of Allah, his son, and once again, how patient he is, you know, any one of us who was put in prison unjustly? Right? If we were found or proven to be either, actually before that, even before being proven to be, you know, before

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

being proven innocent. Use Nevada has sent me a summons to be released from prison, because he did a good deed, right? So follow us, you can go You're good. Now you can leave. But he was like, No, no, my honor. Right, my honor. I was in prison for something I didn't do. And so how I'll say this, you know,

00:07:28--> 00:08:07

having experienced something similar to that, you know, way back when, when I was a student in Medina, you know, dealing with people dealing with, you know, living in another country and going through the hardships of it, you know, sometimes things happen unjustly. And so use of Allah has sent him He says, you know, you know, I'm in a different lens, you know, these are not my people, I was taken here, I was brought here and I was treated this way. And you put me in prison I want I want my my name to be cleared. And so the king, you know, summons him now to clear his name. Hello. So you know, you're free, you're out. And he was a he was appointed as the Minister of Agriculture,

00:08:08--> 00:08:21

okay, the Minister of Agriculture, why because the interpretation of the dream meant that there would be, you know, a number of years of drought, and that or sorry, a number of years of prosperity and goodness, and then a number of years of drought, and then a number of years of goodness once again.

00:08:22--> 00:09:00

And so the king felt you know it since he interpreted the dream and he understands what is to come and who is better to put in that position other than the person who understands what is actually going to happen to us. So use of it his Sanam is released from prison, and he's made a minister within the lens of Egypt. And then fast forward over some time the brothers have use of it his son and they come to Egypt because they needed food, they needed provisions, the drought was happening. Now use of it has sent them many years have passed since he had seen his brothers. And the way it would happen is every person that came would present a camel full of gifts to the king, and they

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

would receive a camel load of food that they could take back with them to their families and so on. And so the brothers of use of Allah who sent him came

00:09:10--> 00:09:36

each one of them with a camel, except for Binyamin. Binyamin didn't come. So use of it, he said, and he inquired about this, and he said, Look, bring, go back, right and bring your brother, and I'll give you another full load, right, I'll give you that full load. And so they were like, Oh, this is an amazing deal, right? We're gonna get double the amount and then when they return, they realized they had all the food and all the gifts all all the all the gifts that they came to present was with them as well.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

And so they told their father, look, we're not lying, we're not cheating. Send Binyamin with us. jacoba. He said, and he was like, Nah, you know what I really don't want to like at this point in time, I can't really trust you guys anymore. And they're like, Look, why would we lie to you? We brought all of the gifts back with us. And you know, all we want to do is go back with Binyamin and bring more food. And so he was like conosco right. That's it. Go

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

And talk Allah He trusted a loss of can with Allah with it. And so they returned and now what happens is use of Allah has sent him, you know, he orders the vessel or the the cup, right that the king would drink out of to be placed on the candle of Binyamin with the stuff and to make it seem as though he stole that cup. Now some people say use of Allah his sin and why would he do this? He's a prophet of Allah subhana wa Tada, why would he do something evil? Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the sutra that he was the one who inspired us of Allah, He sent him to do this. This was the way that Allah Subhana Allah chose for us to have Binyamin return or stay with him.

00:10:41--> 00:11:20

And so it's a divine thing that was done. It's not like, you know, a prophet was acting unjustly, he was doing what was commanded to him by Allah subhana wa tada in order to complete this story, or in order to complete the clutter of Allah subhana wa tada as as per what was supposed to happen. And so the brothers of use have added his son and they go back and they're like, Listen, Binyamin, he stole, he took something, and, you know, you're gonna need to come with us, right? You're gonna need to come with us. And so the father of use of family history, you know, there was a lot of back and forth that was going on. And he sent the back and he said, Listen, go back, the older brother, he

00:11:20--> 00:11:58

decided, no, I'm not going to go back. I'm going to stay here. I'm too ashamed, too embarrassed to go and so on and so forth. And what we see happening in the end, so Pamela, is with the patience of jacoba. And he has set up a loss of handling data showed him decades later, decades later, he was extremely patient. But you know, Allah subhana wa, tada made it such that when they returned, they returned with the shirt of use of it his system. And they were told by the Minister, who was the Minister of their brother, right? And he told them, you know, I'm your brother, and look, you, you did this to me. And so they brought the shirts to their father, and they placed it over his head so

00:11:58--> 00:12:12

that he could smell the scent of use of any his son, I'm granting him he is making him feel comfortable and happy, once again, that use of Allah has sent him is alive. And he's okay, he's well, and so Allah subhanho wa Taala added up,

00:12:13--> 00:12:47

you know, designs the story in a way that the brothers, they knew that they were wrong. And that was their main, their means of submission, that was their way of submitting to a loss of kind of what to add, after many years of going through, you know, lying and cheating and stealing and not telling the truth and so on. And keeping that a secret from their parents for so many years. They realized afterwards that they should submit to a loss of data, and that their brother was honest and was truthful and was a just person. And, you know, they ended up all returning with their mother with their father and with, with,

00:12:48--> 00:12:57

you know, all the brothers, and they returned to Egypt. And they bow down to use a fatty his setup that was a form of showing, you know, thanks and gratitude and welcoming

00:12:59--> 00:13:37

to someone of nobility, and it was permitted during their time, it is not permitted in our shed. Yeah, and our you know, the laws of Islam that we follow, we're not allowed to bow down or to prostrate to anybody. But they did that. And that completed the full cycle of the story from the very third for the very first but the third verse in the song of how the dream of use of it sound was interpreted. And he then saw 11 stars, those are the 11 brothers, and the sun and the moon, his mother and his father, and some say the father and the mother, all of them bowing down to use if any his centum

00:13:39--> 00:13:58

coming to Egypt, and living over there with him peacefully, in a very tranquil, very comfortable, you know, lifestyle, we move on to Surah Surah turnblad. What does this mean? Okay, so sort of the line is the 13th Sutra of the Quran, and it is titled The thunder.

00:14:01--> 00:14:35

Right thunder, when we hear just like, scares us, right? So, thunder, I remember as a child, when we would hear thunder and even nowadays with our children, and I'm sure with your children as well, or if you are children, and you're watching this, sometimes we feel scared when we hear thunder, and that's okay, that's normal because the loss of data created it it's a creation of a muscle pen with data. Don't feel scared and even if you do feel scared, it's okay to sometimes feel scared. As we get older. You know, we realize things and that fear goes away. So don't worry, everything will be fine and a lot of data. So what was the penalties added? Begin sort of divide with a very

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

interesting verse, verse number two, Allah Subhana Allah mentions how he raised the heavens without any pillars.

00:14:43--> 00:14:47

Allah Allah, the euro for smls II Believe it or not, in total.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

It is a law who raised the heavens without pillars and the heavens here meaning the skies. And what's really interesting, though, when you look at the skies, and I love the skies in the summer is just amazing. Love, love.

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Love, love, love the skies in the summer. I love the summer.

00:15:05--> 00:15:24

It's just how is it staying up? And I know people say but it's just gas and vapor, you know, and it's, you know, the density of the air and the clouds are floating and so on. But look a lot of how do we try to put such beautiful things in the sky for us as well? Right? Wouldn't you love it? I had a lot. I had this thanks to my wife, right.

00:15:26--> 00:16:00

And she put that there she says you need a little bit, a little bit of, you know, beautiful scenery going on in your background. I have a nice poster. I want to stick it up over here as well, that I got from Malaysia and I've been keeping for so many years. From one of the trips I made to Malaysia a beautiful poster that I want to put up behind the chat box. But also kindly that it says that he raised the sky such amazing things, right? Whoo hoo Allahu Ahad. Right. As we mentioned, Allah is the one who does things he's able and has the ability and the power to make this guy's flow. And somehow when you see it flowing, sometimes you didn't see that the airplane in the sky and you

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

wonder to yourself something so heavy, I can understand a bird that hardly weighs anything but an airplane that is so heavy. And yes, I know I'm not I'm not dumb, right? People will then message me afterwards. Keyboard warriors, right? They're gonna message and say, Come on, man. It's just pure physics and this and that, like, Yes, I know, I have a degree as a mechanic as well, I understand how these things work. But the point is, Allah subhanaw taala makes the air flow in a certain way that it can lift something up so high into the sky, even though it has such immense amount of weight, that is from the power and might have a loss of handle with Allah, whether you understand it

00:16:38--> 00:17:12

or not. That's the way I understand it. That's the way it was Henry Tanner tries to get us to understand it, that we need to recognize the signs of a loss of Hannah, whatever. And so he mentioned that here and that's exactly what he transitions off into in the next few verses, verse number three and four last Penwith and it says and he is the one who spread out the earth and placed firm mountains and rivers upon it. So unless you've had we've had it talks about the sky, and you know how they're there, and they're suspended without any pillars like they're being held in the sky, there's no pillars nothing holding it up.

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

And then Alyssa pedowitz talks about the earth and he put mountains and rivers and he placed them there so that they hold the earth in place right.

00:17:22--> 00:17:54

And he created fruits of every kind in pairs a lot of fruit right? Fruit Salad amazing amazing amazing thing to break your fast All right, you have a date you have some water and then you have fruit salad. Man, I went to the store the other day and I forgot to pick up What was that? I gotta go pick some up tomorrow and shall lie right home without what was during the month of Ramadan is a mosquito right so probably you got to have that and those of you who don't know what it is man must have had without to make it easy for you to have friends who will introduce you to who

00:17:56--> 00:18:22

all right. So a lot of kind of data then shows us here that he created the earth and the rivers and the mountains and so on. And he created the fruits of every single client all these beautiful flavors, flavors and colors and tastes and textures and some are juicy and some are dry and some are smooth and some are hard and some have peels and some don't have peels Allah kimonos amazing. When we lived in Malaysia remember certain fruits like the mangoes, Dean, right? You pull it open and

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

lojack are so tasty, right? And then you have you have rambutan right, which is, you know, the hairy fruit.

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

Kind of like a lychee or lychee however you want to say it I say lychee and then so kinda you open it up and it's so sweet. So beautiful. And then you have durian that smells so horrible a lot.

00:18:44--> 00:19:19

Right, Allison? canwood Allah created something that smells so strong, so like, difficult to bear for someone who's not used to it. But then when you put the fruit in your mouth, you're like, Oh, this is like two complete extremes. Like you go from absolutely crazy unbearable scent to unbelievably tasty, amazing, the king of fruits, right durian. And so somehow when you think of Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with so many different fruits and vegetables and things on earth for us to cherish and enjoy.

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

can't sit for too long, it's hard to sit down. Well, our back's killing me. Then Allah Subhana Allah says he covers the day with night surely and these are Signs for those who reflect right covers the day with night. So the daytime is bright and you can see everything right you think of it if you've ever gone to a mountainous region or an area where there's a lot of mountains I remember went to Whistler. It has these really high mountains or bench right where Jasper really really high mountain so how you see them they're just towering over you. You take selfie pictures and you see these beautiful mountain behind you and throughout the day like oh

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

Love, love. Amazing so great. And that night when the when the night comes, what does the last of Henry's Hennessy he covers the day, it's night

00:20:11--> 00:20:58

covers up the you know the world. And so when the night comes, it gets so dark, these huge mountains that are like piercing into the sky, you can't even see them because it's so dark. You wouldn't even know that there's a mountain right in front of your face. That's how dark it is a loss of Hannibal attalla you know, in the end speaks the truth and tells us about this. If only we were to understand if only we could you know, some kind of Legends comprehend the greatness and the power and the might of Allah subhanho wa Taala to have that. And then he says well feel ugly. And on earth. There are different neighboring tracks, gardens of grapevines, various crops, palm trees, some stemming from

00:20:58--> 00:21:39

the same root others standing alone. They are irrigated with the same water yet we make some tastes better than others surely in this are Signs for those who understand. So how long can you think of it some of the trees some of the plants some of them are like they don't even look good, right? Forget about eating the fruits on them and others looks so amazing and tasty and juicy, and you just can't resist and also apparently daddy says that he gave it to them from the same waters, right? It came from you know, the same foods. They're from the same, you know, plant sometimes, but the fruits differ. And that's a sign for us. My brothers and sisters, sometimes we come from the same family.

00:21:41--> 00:22:09

But the fruits differ. You might have children and your children are different. Yes, no doubt we're all different. Every single one of us is different. But you might wonder to yourself one of the children ended up being someone who was raised and took on a snap raise the punish them and embraced Islam and others you know, were raised upon Islam and rejected Islam. You know, that's the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala he shows us that through the life of nor how to his set out and we took that story yesterday. No honey has sent him

00:22:10--> 00:22:50

called his son he asked his son you know embark upon this ship, you're going to drown you're going to die there's no there's no way that you're going to survive this. This is it if you want success, you need to embark upon this ship but you have to believe in Allah. And what does he say? Sorry, Dad, I'm good. Don't worry about me. And what happened? He drowned in that water that was the son of new honey has sent him the profit or loss of prenowitz if that's the case with a profit of a loss of data, what about us so my brothers and sisters remember we could be from the same family who ate the same food is our siblings and ate the same you know, drank the same waters or the same rules. And we

00:22:50--> 00:23:22

fasted on the same days and we sat at the same kitchen table and you may have even slept in the same bedrooms you shared rooms together right? And you know even shared clothing together once your clothing outgrew you pass it on to the younger sibling or the older siblings clothing was passed on to you. He had a loss of hand without it shows us look we could we you know that's just that's just the way it is. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to have mercy upon us to make it easy for our families and our siblings and allow us to be a means of guiding

00:23:24--> 00:23:28

others as well as our family to the straight path. I mean,

00:23:30--> 00:24:02

and then Allah subhana wa Taala says, let's move to verse number eight and nine, Allah subhana wa tada says, Alan knows what every female bears and what increases and decreases in the wombs. And with him, everything is determined with precision. Look at this, I must have had without us talking about, you know, the womb. And he's talking about how the child who is in the womb of the mother right to the child that's in the womb of the mother must have had which it knows every female

00:24:03--> 00:24:39

he knows what every female there's and what increase in increases and decreases in the womb. And I wanted to share an example here my brothers and sisters a brother and a sister in our community, you know, so Pamela, they went through a really difficult time with their pregnancy. And there are quite a few people who have gone through difficult times, you know, at least at least maybe once a month someone comes in or a couple comes in and you know, they're asking for, you know, they're asking you know, permissibility on certain things and advice and consultation because of their their pregnancy or the pregnancy that the that the wife is is going through.

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

And Allah subhana wa tada you know, shows us that here in the Quran. He is the knower of the seen and the unseen, all great, most exalted. You know, in the examples of how to love the brother and his wife came in it was their first child and there were so many so many complications like you can't even eat

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

Imagine how many complications it hurts, it hurts, I could see the pain in in that brother and his sister, that brother and the sister and the brother and his wife, so much pain, so much hurt there, you know, finally, you know, she got pregnant, and now there's so many complications and doctors are saying you need to abort this marriage, you know,

00:25:21--> 00:25:39

not the marriage, the child, right, you need to abort the child, you need to, you know, figure this out, you need to get some counseling, you need some handler, they were given a proof and proof and proof upon proof of why they felt from a medical, you know, perspective, the child should not, you know, be born.

00:25:41--> 00:25:57

However, Subhanallah, there was no evidence for this to be the case islamically as in the child had already reached had already, you know, past a certain term, the pregnancy had already passed that term. And it would not be permissible for us to abort it.

00:25:59--> 00:26:06

Or to give the okay for that, sister to do that, to have an abortion, or, you know, to go through some sort of medical procedure

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

not to have the child.

00:26:10--> 00:26:53

And I remember, you know, seeking advice. And I've done this quite often Pamela with some doctors around the world and some scholars around the world for doctors, medical doctors as well. And asking them their advice. Is it permissible in this case, and none of none of them could find any reason for it? Long story short, my brothers and sister the child was born and hamdulillah Yes, there were some complications, but nothing near what the doctors were saying, could be a possibility of complication. So this mother and father was, you know, they, they were convinced when they came in, that they were going to have an abortion, but some kind of law when they left my office. You know,

00:26:53--> 00:27:11

we went back and forth and consulted with many others. And then they ended up having the child and panelists amazing, because, you know, they were told the child would not live more than maybe a week or two or three weeks, if even survived through the pregnancy. And hamdulillah the baby is still alive now. That's

00:27:12--> 00:27:50

quite some time has passed. Right? So Hamdulillah, Allah Subhana, Allah is in control and he knows best, right? Allah Subhana. Allah knows best. And this is where he tells us that he knows everything that's within us, within within the mother, right? Must have hen with Anna knows if it's a boy or if it's a girl, are there twins in there? Is the child going to be okay? Is there some sort of illness or loss of habitat is already written for whatever is going to happen to that child in this life? 60 7080 years from now, is already written, you know, and we don't know, we have no idea. We don't even know if it's gonna be a boy or girl and you have a loss of hanway talent knows what's going to

00:27:50--> 00:27:59

happen 50 6070 years down the line from the birth from the time of the birth of that child. That's absolutely amazing. Let's move on and shot a lot of data.

00:28:02--> 00:28:10

Sort of verse number 12 and 13 let's look at verse number 12 and 13 Where is it? Where is it? Where is it?

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Technology

00:28:13--> 00:28:57

Allah subhana wa tada now mentioned something to do with the with the actual Thunder itself so Allah subhana wa tada says he is the one who shows you lightning inspiring you with hope and fear and produces heavy clouds you know when we see lightning handler we first of all, we might be scared, right and we mentioned this earlier a child might feel scared when they see the lightning however, I remember watching this documentary A while back used to live in Southeast Asia absolutely love Southeast Asia love Malaysia love Singapore love Indonesia, you know, countries in that region Hong Kong's amazing amazing amazing. Brunei wish to go to Brunei insha Allah sometime soon May Allah

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

subhana wa tada accept and make that possible.

00:29:00--> 00:29:02

You know, so many things that we've seen,

00:29:03--> 00:29:16

you know, around the world. And one thing that's really interesting and I saw this documentary was filmed in Singapore from, you know, the one of the higher floors of a hotel in Singapore overlooking the water.

00:29:17--> 00:29:38

And it was a very, very slow motion recording of the lightning. So it was like lightning showers happening in the distance in Singapore. And I remember when we were living in Malaysia, so how long it rains it rains. It pours really really hard. And the lightning is just

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

all the time you'll see it everywhere. And then the thunder that follows behind it is like so strong and powerful. But you get used to it and it's amazing. I remember in when we were in Malaysia and I would love to go back and just do this. Go back to our apartment on a really really heavy rainfall day right a day when the rain is falling down.

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

Headley and open those balcony doors My wife is watching she knows exactly what we're talking about and just sit there with the rain pouring down is amazing. I used to love doing that.

00:30:10--> 00:30:17

And our children used to love it as well these to sit there with the doors open and the rain will be falling and it's so nice and the smell of the rain and the water.

00:30:18--> 00:30:19

Absolutely amazing.

00:30:21--> 00:30:30

So I'm telling you this because the lightning in that documentary they recorded it in slow motion in order to capture all the different lightning bolts coming down like

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

all at once like

00:30:33--> 00:30:38

showers of lightning. I know the hotel is called Marina Bay Sands I know I've been there

00:30:39--> 00:31:21

but you know most people don't know so I didn't say it right so but you know the lightnings coming down absolutely amazing people would record even me when I see the lightning in that region. How are you trying to record it you try to capture picture it's just absolutely amazing and look at what I was a pen with Anna says he says he is the one who shows you lightning inspiring hope and fear within us inspiring hope and fear within us fear yes we know we get scared of it but hope because when we see it like a wall This is amazing. This is the creation of a lesson plan which none of us can replicate this right? And then it was a pen with Anna says and produces heavy clouds.

00:31:22--> 00:31:42

The thunder glorifies His praises so the thunder itself will use sub behavoir to be handy he will mela aka to minifetti as do the angels in all of him in all of our loss of handle to Hana right? And so Oh, sister noodle that's you?

00:31:43--> 00:31:49

You miss home Yes Let's make a trip to Singapore altogether and shout along to Heather right. By the way. The

00:31:52--> 00:32:09

the beef Rendang love I hate the whole tray. If not it all trade so Pamela absolutely amazing. And wanted more for some food. But May Allah Subhana Medina Bless you. Absolutely amazing. Okay, so yes, missing home.

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

You know, when Allah Subhana Allah mentions about the lightning, what do we hear after it? thunder and Allah subhana wa Tada. And it shows us there that the thunder itself is praising a lot. So children when you get scared of the thunder don't, because all the thunder is, is showing us that the lightning that came produces the sound and the sound is actually praising a loss of Hannah with dad. It's the praise of the of the lightning, the thunder and the lightning combined. They're praising the loss of Hannah what to Hannah, we use some be heard word, the thunder glorifies His praises when the minute he came to increase it as do the angels in all of a loss of handle whatever.

00:32:55--> 00:33:36

He sends thunderbolts striking with them, whoever he wills, yet the dispute about a law, and he is tremendous in Might, no doubt my brothers and sisters when we see the lightning and we hear the thunder, it should remind us of a loss of Hannibal wattpad. And you know, it's such an amazing thing to Pamela. Yes, it's dangerous, no doubt, but it reminds us of the power and the might and the strength of Allah subhanho wa Taala. yet, at the same time, the sophistication of Allah subhana wa Taala in his creation. And I always used to think of this because I'm a mechanic and I like to think of cars and stuff like that.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

If you're in a vehicle, and

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

lightning strikes it

00:33:47--> 00:34:28

technically, if everything is perfect, and everything is fine. And again, this is the sophistication of the creation of a robust panel. Without it, there would be no issues. Like being in an airplane, an airplane that is struck by lightning and happens quite often airplanes get struck by lightning, but the lightning bolt just travels through it and out the other end and follows the plane keeps going. And that's the creation of a monster panel with a hammer, you know, he created something that we get so scared of. While at the same time it's so amazing to think of how Allah has made it such that the lightning can travel through different items without harming the items or the contents of

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

the item. So for example, if you're in a car and it's raining heavily or something and you know the electrical wire comes out of out of brakes and it comes down and touches your car labetalol We ask Allah subhana wa tada to save you and protect you. But it still is possible that the electricity, right the voltage from it would travel over the surface of the car and into the ground. And us sitting inside your car stains on your car are perfectly fine to stay in your car, stop the car, don't touch anything. Just wait wait for help. And last what to add

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

You know, knows best. Also one of the things that you know that we learn some kind of lies that if that is the case and you need to abort you need to get out of the, you know of the vehicle, then you jump, you do not touch the vehicle and the ground at the same time. That's the sophistication of the creation of a lesson plan with data. Absolutely. Amazing. All right, let's move on.

00:35:26--> 00:35:54

Some kind of luck. Verse number 2224, okay, or 2223 24, Allah Subhana Allah says, and they are those who endure patiently seeking their Lord's pleasure established prayer, donate from what We have provided for them secretly and openly and respond to evil with good It is they who will have the ultimate abode what is that the garden of eternity unless of penalties and it says Jeanette to admin, you had to follow

00:35:55--> 00:36:35

along almost pen with addresses which they will enter along with the Righteous Among their parents, spouses and descendants. So if we want paradise and we want all of these things, this is what we need to do. We need to make sure that we seek the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada everything we do, we try to do seeking the pleasure of Allah Subhana data. We try to establish prayer in our lives and we donate to my brothers and sisters we need to donate donate, donate, you want paradise donate, you want, you know gender donate, you want to be shaded on the Day of Judgment, donate, you want to have ease. You know, in this life, donate, you want to feel the simplicity of life, donate, you want

00:36:35--> 00:37:16

to remove arrogance from your heart and from your mind from your life. donate my brothers and sisters is so important to give for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that you know, it cleanses us of this dunya as well as in the hereafter Okay, then Allah subhana wa tada says, send them when they come deema so bottom veneer that del Peace be upon you for your for your perseverance, how excellent is the ultimate abode my brothers and sisters we may not have much in this world we may not have much. But Allah subhana wa tada knows that we are going to be patient with what we have. He knows that well. He knows that we can but we have to write we have to be

00:37:16--> 00:37:56

patient with what we have. We have to stand strong Insider. We need to establish our prayers The first thing that we are going to be questioned about why because we're doing it for a lot. People say why do you pray you're not getting anything in return? No, I am getting something in return. I am standing before Allah subhanho wa tada submitting to him and to Him alone, leaving the rest of the world behind me. It doesn't matter at this point in time. Asana to hire Amina dunya. Right. I sought out to fenomena known when we're sleeping, are we breaking any rules? No. Are we committing a sin? No, we're sleeping. In fact, while we are sleeping we're so pure. Think of this while we're

00:37:56--> 00:38:19

sleeping. We're so pure that even if we miss our sauna because we were sleeping and we didn't hear the alarm, you know we were in a heavy sleep and we missed the alarm. We didn't hear it. We are not even held accountable for that when we wake up then we just pray the prayer we're not sin for missing that prayer because we were sleeping. So when you're sleeping you're in such a pure state.

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

Yet

00:38:25--> 00:38:29

Allah subhana wa tada shows us in the southern

00:38:31--> 00:39:10

You're clean your period there's no sense I'm hamdulillah everything is perfectly fine but a smaller claim Amina No. So that is even better than that. And you might think to yourself Yeah, but if I get up I might you know swear might do something wrong. It is no no. Oh, that is better than everything even the most pure of things a solid a solid right well not America, it's a matter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was passing away and what was his advice to the people around us honor establish

00:39:10--> 00:39:16

your Salah be Be mindful, be conscious be be you know aware of your Salah.

00:39:17--> 00:39:44

So someone keeps asking what time do we break our fast? What time do we break our fast? Look, I don't know where he lives. So I can't tell you if you're in Australia. You may not even be fasting right now. Or you may have just started your fast over here in in Toronto tonight. I think it's at 829 if I'm not mistaken or 830 Allah Subhana Allah knows best wherever you are. So don't keep asking us. You know, otherwise we're going to have to okay Toronto 838 30 right. shaba

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

So, then Allah subhana wa tada shows us here in verse number 28. Okay, and living in urban watercolor in Nepal, lubu Ambika Allah, Allah busy karela he taught my inner loop, Allah Subhana. Allah shows us that

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

Let's move to Surah Ibrahim in this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala showing us right at the beginning, this will give

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

him any

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

little kita when

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

he can eat region samina

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

he didn't already be near

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

me. And if

00:42:53--> 00:43:11

this is a book, which We have revealed to you, profits on a longer under us alum, so that you may lead people out of darkness and into light by the will of of your Lord by the will of their Lord, to the path of the Almighty, that praiseworthy

00:43:13--> 00:43:26

and amazing verse to start in a surah titled, or named after one of the most amazing human beings to ever walk the face of this earth who is that Prophet Ibrahim and he has set up

00:43:27--> 00:43:47

and then also pen with Adam continues. We're not going to take all of the verses but I want to go to verse number 22 and 23 verse number 22, Allah subhana wa tada says, shows us here something interesting about shape font, listen to this. He says and Satan will say on the Day of Judgment, we'll call this shape on

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

lemme call the Emerald in LA where they're from where they'll have

00:43:53--> 00:44:14

to come left to come a loss of time with Allah says and shape on Satan will say to his followers, after the judgment has been passed, okay, so after someone has already received their judgment shavon will say to this person, indeed a law has made you a true promise.

00:44:16--> 00:44:55

What does that promise he warned us in this life if you live according to what shape on once you will have what shape one is getting you will have Jana, if you live according to what I was reading the data once you will have paradise Alright, so that's the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala. After the decree is made as an after our judgment is passed on the Day of Judgment shavon will come to those who will speak to not to every single one of us in this verse right We ask Allah subhana wa tada to keep us protected from shape on the cursed and shaitan will say Indeed, Allah has made you a true promise that you will go to Paradise if you believe and you will go to join them if you just

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

believe I made you a promise. shape on

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

will tell us He made us a promise as well. And he says, Look at what he says. He says, I too made you a promise. But I failed you.

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

I failed you. I promised you something.

00:45:14--> 00:45:31

But too bad. My promise was fake. My premise was false was false, but the promise of a loss of bandwidth and it is true. And so Shaban will come to the person and will say a lot promised you something. I also promised you something, but I failed you.

00:45:33--> 00:46:26

I do not have any authority over you. I only called you and you responded to me. So do not blame me. Blame yourselves. I cannot save you, nor can you save me. Indeed I denounce your previous association of me with a lot in loyalty. Sure the the wrongdoers will suffer a painful torment. Look at how on the Day of Judgment after the judgment is passed shaytaan will go to the person or to the people and say, Hey, I promised you but I failed you and you can't see me and I can't see you so to bed buddy. You just listened to me. Haha, you got played. Basically it doesn't shake on is saying you got played. So my brothers and sisters don't get played by shape on doughnut shape and play us

00:46:26--> 00:46:44

Don't let shape on trying to distract us be firm upon what Allah Subhana Allah has promised us and if it is difficult Barrett and a loss of handling data will give us something even better in the hereafter. And then the last part of the suta that I wanted to take is vs number 32 to 34.

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

Here a loss of handling data is showing us

00:46:49--> 00:47:00

from his creations You know, there's a lot of things that list of his favors, you know that Allah Subhana Allah has given to us on Earth. In fact, it's not the last thing I want to mention one more thing after this.

00:47:01--> 00:47:32

So Allah Subhana Allah mentions, you know, his favors and his blessings and so on. And then the next thing that I want to mention in the next few verses is Ibrahim Allah has sent him and his daughter Allah to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and how he's asking Allah Subhana Allah to protect his children to come in quickly to move Allah Subhana Allah says and he was granted, sorry and he has granted you all that you asked him for everything we asked for a logo granted to us either now or later or engender right later on.

00:47:34--> 00:48:18

If you tried to count all those blessings, what in depth do neerim that's the law he led to a loss of kindness Allah says if you were to try to enumerate tried to count tried to add up and tabulate all the blessings of a loss of Henry's Anna, we cannot do that my brothers and sisters there are too many for us to even comprehend. And so here we see a loss of Hannah with Anna showing us You will never be able to add them up. Indeed humankind or humanity is truly unfair, truly ungrateful. He then says remember Ibrahim, remember the surah Ibrahim right? He says remember Ibrahim when he prayed and he asked the loss of penalty to Allah He said

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

I'll be jaren heard that he better

00:48:24--> 00:48:27

than he was any Naboo then also

00:48:29--> 00:49:16

my lord makes this city the city of Mecca used to be called Becca right? Make this city secure and safe and keep me and my children away from the worship of idols Allahu Akbar. keep us away from the worship of idols. Here we see a drop being made by Ibrahim Allah has sent him to help MCC stay safe and to be secured. And so if I was handwritten is receiving this, from Ibrahim no doubt, MCC will be safe and a loss of hundreds and it will save the people of Mecca. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will look after the family of Ibrahim Valley his center. But he then says he makes it to keep me and my children away from the worship of idols. This is important to my brothers and sisters. He then says

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

of being in

00:49:24--> 00:49:52

my Lord, they have caused many people to go astray who the idols people worship them, right. So whoever follows me is with me and whoever disobeys me then surely you are still all forgiving, Most Merciful feminine tibia I need for in me unless a pen with Hannah showing us this to have Rahim Allah has sent him he then says I'm benna in the scaler to me.

00:49:53--> 00:49:56

TV was in the late 80s.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

We will have one

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

i'm

00:50:03--> 00:50:04

john

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

cena.

00:50:20--> 00:50:29

Powerful Dora Ibrahim added his set up and says our Lord, I have settled some of my offspring in a barren Valley near your sacred home.

00:50:30--> 00:51:04

Just imagine Ibrahim leaves baby is Marian and her job in the middle of nowhere with nothing. And Ibrahim I know he sent him calls out to a loss of Hanwen Tanner all what I left my family there. So take care of them, look after them. And he says near your sacred house, our Lord so that they may establish prayer. Ibrahim Ali has sent him left his family he sacrificed leaving his family there so that they can establish prayer.

00:51:07--> 00:51:54

who sacrifices leaving their child in the middle of the desert and leaving their wife alone with nothing for the sake of a law for what? For me and you? If you're watching this now, and you're a believer, and most of hand with and is showing us Ibrahim Allah has sent him sacrificed on that day for you and for me, so that we can believe so that we can have prayer and so that we can also be from those who established Salah. So my brothers and sisters don't take this Deen lightly. This is amazing. And this is divine. And this is from a prophet of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, so that they may establish prayer. And then he says, so make the hearts of believing people inclined towards

00:51:54--> 00:52:43

them, and provide them with fruits, so perhaps they will be thankful so that his family would be looked after our Lord you certainly know what we conceal and what we reveal nothing on earth or in heaven is hidden from Allah. All Praise is with Allah. Who has blessed me with is married and is half in my old age. Look at that Ibrahim is making you're praising Allah subhana wa Johanna, you have blessed me with Israel and his heart in such an old age and there's like a span of like 13 years between the two of them. My lord is indeed the hearer of all prayers if you need something my brothers and sisters, ask a law now, this is the time make dua.

00:52:44--> 00:53:13

My Lord make me and those believers of my descendants keep up prayer Ibrahimi to offer you to be able to upkeep your prayer and your slot up Don't let a loss of Henry turn it down. Don't let the door of Ibrahim be wasted where you don't pray your prayers. Pray you're sold on my brothers and sisters. And then he says our Lord are better what to do our Lord accept my prayers except may do

00:53:16--> 00:53:31

and we're Lord forgive me, my parents and subpanel I look at this we see this in our sauna of the journey Maki masala tea woman's will be at Robin our Taco Bell Dr. Robin ofili What do you wear the day? Yeah, well, I mean, yo man Yakumo.

00:53:32--> 00:54:14

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us, you know, that we are asking to not only for ourselves, but for our parents and for all of the believers when it is Nina, young layup woman is up until the day of judgment will pass just on the level of hate on my brothers and sisters. That is all the time that we have about a level FICO or some of the law who was telling them about a carabiner hammer earlier, he was suddenly asked about some panel which added to make it easy for all of you and to make this helper today, one that is beneficial to every single one of us. And there was a panel it's an excerpt from us our fast and to forgive us of our sins, and to bless us with the best of this

00:54:14--> 00:54:32

world and the best of the hereafter. I mean, and to make us from amongst those who establish prayer, who pays the cat, who gives other court who give donations and who believe in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah until the last day mean, which is on the low Hayden was set mRNA from La Jolla, or better cattle
