Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam who Allah and a V Hill Karim Allah here phenyl Salatu Adam teslim rubbish. ruffly Sabri. wayah Siddeley Emily orchidectomy lisanti of Cabo Kohli, my brothers and my sisters said Mr. Eddie Come on metal wall he robot a capital, I hope and ask Allah subhana wa to Anna, to make everything well, for every single one of us and to accept from us throughout this month of Ramadan. I mean,
tonight, we're actually beginning the 15th of June.
So two weeks of Ramadan has already passed. And Tomorrow is Friday, which means tomorrow will be the third Friday. Well, technically tonight to begins the Friday right. So tonight will begin the third Friday of this month of Ramadan. And some have alone you think of it three Fridays already, only another two to go. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make it easy for us to maximize and benefit from this month of Ramadan to give as much as we can for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa tanunda and to make us from amongst those who attained the highest levels of Jannah through attaining the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada in this dunya. I mean,
tonight we're starting sort of to Islam, and we're also going to be doing sort of to recap in sha Allah and Johanna and sort of to look at is an interesting sort out for us to be covering tonight because it is the is not the fourth of
the month. It's the
the night of July, right, it's going to be the night of Friday. And so there's an importance in reciting sort of to have on the Friday and we'll see that tonight in sha Allah or now in our CS class. But before we do that we need to cover sort of
is known as the sutra titled was titled The Knights journey, right? It's the journey that was made at night by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now, this journey was really interesting because of lots of headwinds. Allah highlights the importance of who he is and how he made this journey so possible to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as we see mentioned in the very first verse of the surah, Allah Subhana Allah says, Ruby left him in a shape Tamika Jean Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim so beheren en ledi Assad drbd
here. We want some kind of with Anna Here begins the sutra by praising himself Suhana
all praises due to him who led us through the Abbe de les in Amina Masjid in her army in an STD ACO saw a lady Barak. Now how will only Nuria woman a Latina, also had with Adam begins by praising himself Glory be to the one who took his servant Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by night from the sacred mosque Nina must you do harem lol message GD x saw from the sacred mosque from Mecca to Jerusalem Lemuria who mean a Latina led balconette Hello sorry, and led the barrack now how level to the farthest mosque whose surroundings we have blessed right Upsilon means the farthest mosque right or upside is the furthest
and so a Muslim pen with ad is saying that he took his messengers on the one where I think you ascend them from Mecca where he is comfortable at home to the furthest place. I saw a lady Barak now Hello, whose surroundings we have blessed so that we may show him some of our signs of loss of handling to add a button brought the profits on the one where it he was sending them there to show him something really interesting. Now to go through this story very quickly. I want some kind of way to Anna brought the profits on a one way and he was sending them there. You know, in the middle of the night he rode on a block, which is the animal that the Prophet that Allah subhana wa tada was,
he was the animal that Allah Subhana Allah provided for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to make that nice journey right? And when we think of it, you know, going from Mecca to finish clean or I should be
More specific to Jerusalem during that time.
And mustard the UK saw it was a journey that would take a long, long time. So hello when we think of it, you know, from from Medina and Mecca is south, right? So Mecca is south of Medina. So you have Medina, and then you have, you know, MK here, and then oxide is up north. Right so the profits on longer and he was sending money from down south all the way up, right? And so that's important for us to notice. How did he make this journey of growth is this animal that Allah subhanho wa Taala had allowed the other prophets to ride and Allah subhana wa tada allowed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to use that animal during that journey that was made at night. Now some of this habit of
the Aloha and home, you know, they supported the prophets of Allah and His sentiments, in fact, all of them did. But it was a bucket of the ummah. And immediately after he returned, the police were like, Yeah, right, come on, like you trying to tell me that he he made this journey from here all the way to Jerusalem and back, like come on, it's called, must be the luxol for a reason. It's far it's distant. It's like on the end of, you know, a long journey.
But when we think of it today, if you were to make that journey today from Makkah, it's like a 45 minute plane ride. It's not even that fast. And not even that far, really, it doesn't take that long. And and you know, for this habit of the alohar. And him to think like, oh, how can someone, you know, make this journey? In fact, let me make that correction? Not even not just a habit of the people have to wonder, is it possible to make a journey of that distance? So quick like to go there to go through what he went through and experience and come all the way back? Well, this apparently, is showing us that if I can see. And I can see from here all the way down there a few blocks, I
don't even know how far I can see with this eye, then isn't it possible for our loss of handling data to take us from here to somewhere else? Of course, right? And if I can take my hand and I can reach far and grab something, isn't it possible, you know, someone who's not able to move would say that, you know, that's impossible for me to do, I would give everything I would give all the wealth. I remember, you know, Schaefer the elders telling us a story of someone who was sick, and he would give all of his wealth, to be able to do something that other people take for granted. So someone who's not able to do something or have never done it before would not be able to understand how it's
possible to do. But for us to know in 2020 understand the profits in the long run, it was sudden went from mcca to beta to invest in the upside is possible. It's simple, it's easy for lots of designers to do such a thing. And so he goes there, he makes this journey.
And then he goes up along the way he you know, is in contact with some of the profits. And we know the story of God taking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and excusing himself and going through from sky to Sky to Sky right from the different levels. Meeting Adam Allah His cinnamon, yeah, and ERISA and use of an indecent heroine and muslin Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam. And so then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes in converses with a boss of Canada with Anna and of course he doesn't see a was accountable with Anna right? He's not able to actually see a law. There is this. There's a barrier between him and Allah subhanho wa Taala, that barrier of light. And so the
command to pray 15 times a day is given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pray 50 times a day. Yes, pray 50 times a day. That was the prescription given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He comes down and he meets with who which prophet let's see very quickly which one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala told prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to go back just quickly mention it in the chat. Let's see. You know, I'm gonna just peek over here and see who mentions what's in the chat which one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala was told,
told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to go back and to tell the tale a lot to lessen the amount of prayers. Moosa very good Paul Hera caught a melody I saw lots of Ark in LA. Okay, so she says Musa Allah has sent an IV this award now all the Muslims are gonna come in right look Moosa, very good. So it was Moosa and he said, Why Moosa? When we think of whom was it his Sam was?
If I come closer, I don't have to speak so loud, right? So Musa Allah has sent him he's the Prophet of Allah subhana wa tada that hit the angel of death in the face. He was brave enough to do that. Right. He tells the angel of death, you know, go back. You're not coming to take my soul.
Who do you think you are? And, you know, he was so brave that he confronted fit our own and he had to be brave. Like when we think of his story, a lot of people say oh, you know, he wasn't brave, but he was so brave. Allah subhana wa tada chose someone who would stand, you know, for the truth. He stood in what was right and wrong between those two people that were arguing, and he punched one of them. And his punch was so strong and powerful that it actually killed the person that he punched. We see that Masada has sent him needed to be brave to go and to face the person who raised him in his home in our own, we see that musala has said um, you know, over time, he was extremely brave in
dealing with the magicians and dealing with people that tried to, you know, displease Allah subhana wa Johanna in, even after they believed by you know, creating that idol by you know, forming the idol of the cow and then worshipping the cow and so on. So he was extremely brave, and he sent him tells the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
Shai, now watch this for you today, buddy.
One a year is enough. So Allah Subhana Allah, you know, gives the profits in the long run, I need to send him the command and so he comes down. Mousavi sentences go back. It's too much. It's too difficult. Your people are not going to be able to do that. Imagine if we had to pray 50 times a day right now, like many of us are struggling with 20 out of town are we not 20 prayers 10 prayers of tuukka each plus the five daily prayers we're struggling with that. Imagine so how Allah if we had to pray 50 times a day. So the profits no longer any of them goes back to Allah. Allah subhana wa Jalla brings it down to 45. Then musante Sanam says go back, he goes back on but brings it down to
40. Moosa says go back again, it's too difficult, and that keeps happening 3530 2520 1510 five, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was like, Look, now, you know, I'm a little
shy to even ask anything more or less of hanaway to add it says five. And for those five, I will multiply them by 10. And so they will be the reward of 50 prayers in the day. If we pray five times a day, we get the reward of praying 50 times a day. And many of us don't think of that reward when we're talking about how Allah Subhana Allah multiplies our sauna, we usually say if we pray in congregation, Allah multiplies it by 27 times. But he multiplies it by 27 times and by 10 times for each one of the prayers, because each prayer is multiplied by 10 in order to equal 50. And so a loss of handled data is extremely, extremely generous in that sense. And we asked for loss of data to
continue to be merciful and generous upon us. I mean,
so he receives this command of Sala and that's, you know, the time that that took place, that night journey, he travels back, some Allahu Allah, he was sending him to Mecca, he arrives in mechanics as though he hadn't even left. And then the people start to talk about it when he mentioned, look, this happened to me a while back or de la harangue, says, you know, if I'm able to believe in Him receiving this revelation from Allah, then surely I would believe in him, you know, having the ability to be taken by Allah to accept and come back, right? It's just there, right? It's not that far away. And so they believe in this submit and they accept what you know, message had come from
Allah subhana wa is added to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we move on in sha Allah to add
in verse number 11 of sola to Israel, in fact, similar to Islam, I say this every year, my teacher of law, he passed away when I was memorizing Quran, I was what 13 or 14 years old at the time
studying an Ajax for those of you who know Ajax, right Shifu they found that I we were both students there. So those who are, you know, here in Milton, you know, Schaefer, they found that mmm for mustard. Both he and I are from originally from Montreal, but we both went to study and memorize code in Ajax. Back in the day in 9293 94, you know, those years, and some kind of law.
I remember my teacher the day that we had to memorize the first page of swords for our 10 week class, and I failed at doing that I was focusing so much on memorizing my subak over my lesson, right? My my lesson for the day that I thought to myself, that is more important. So I prioritize that. And that was the one and only day in the years that I was there. The one and only day that my teacher was upset with me. He was like, You didn't memorize it on us go like just go you have the day off. He gave me the day off from class. That was my punishment. My punishment was your you don't have to come to class today.
You know, some kind of lados for me that was a blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada. And it's a memory that I'll never forget from the, you know, the first page of swords is about that, you know, I left class and I sat down and I started memorizing that page. I was like, I disappointed my teacher so much he didn't even want me to be in the class. And when you think of it, it's such a light punishment. It's like Oh, how long do you have the day off? But you know, when when you dedicate your day and your night to memorizing the Quran and you your teacher tells you to leave the class. It's like a disgrace like a huge insult.
That you're not worthy of being in the class with the other students that are memorizing the plan. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for all of us to memorize. And for those of us who have memorized to retain the Quran, and to make it easy for us to live and act upon the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala found in the corner enemy.
So that's a little part of my history that I shared with you. We moved to verse number 11 of sola to Islam verse number 11. Allah subhana wa tada shows us and humans swiftly pray for evil as they pray for good for humankind is ever hasty, what kind of incentive to do that? So lots of handle with and shows us here that when we make do out at times when we raise our hands or we might not even raise our hands, we might just blurt something out a parent, should I pay attention to your mom? She should never do this, okay? I'm not saying she does. I'm just saying like you can use this against your parents. Right? How do we use it against our parents in a nice way? Allah Subhana Allah is
showing us here
at times, we might get frustrated with things that are going on, we might find it difficult for us in life, and something happens and immediately we blurt something out, we blurt something out, we say something like, may you be cursed or, you know, may Allah you know, do this to you or I don't understand these people are so annoying, then can't they just, you know, be this way or be that way we blurt things out and sometimes we don't. We don't recognize what we're saying. We don't understand what we're saying. We don't fully appreciate the fact that Allah subhana wa tada is listening to us always. And then we may regret it afterwards. And so the door of parents especially
the mother is accepted. We need to be careful as parents not to say anything negative about our children never to say anything bad about your children don't even blurt out like oh you know may not do this to you Why? Why would we say that and some have a lot we say it sometimes as parents out of frustration so we asked them also kindly to hand it to save us and protect us from that. But a loss of handling addresses in humans pray for evil as they pray for good so as quickly as we pray for good when something bad happens to us and we're like Yeah, well please make it easy for them for us. Yeah, Allah Take me out of this y'all I need a job to handle. You know this brother. I was talking
to him last night. May Allah subhana wa Montana make it easy for him. You know a very good brother I know him from the mustard really really kind hearted brother Alhamdulillah love him and his family and his children you know, always there in the mustard. This brothers have had a lot
and we travel regularly for for work. And, you know, as an engineer, and now because of what's happened is pandemic he lost his job. And somehow I was talking to him just a few In fact, just maybe two weeks before you know the the suspension of salah and Juma and stuff like that. And he was telling me that this year in sha Allah He will receive the million mile club status. For those of you who don't know when you travel a lot, you know you've traveled from, from Mecca to XL multiple times. If you receive 1 million miles of status, then you are in this elite class of flying people who have flown so much that you will have gold status for the rest of your life. Right You have gold
status for the rest of your life. And so he was hoping to receive it this year. I hope he does receive it this year in sha Allah.
But he lost his job he was telling me last night he was laid off you know for the last six weeks now he hasn't been working and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to have mercy upon us. But what do we do immediately when we hear that we may do a house or lots of panels at his thing sometimes we need to ask for evil just as fast as we need to our for good. And then he says for humankind is ever hasty. What can an insect or a jeweler we rush into things my brothers and sisters we need to take it easy sometimes. You know you're having a bad day and you feel like this is it. I want change I want out of this. I want something different for myself in life. When in reality that's not good for us,
right? It's not good for us something else is good for us there is something better that is in you know, laying in our path waiting for us. And so we need to take it easy and not just rush into things. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us through the symptoms.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the importance of seeking guidance from Allah, through things like istikhara like his Tisha asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for guidance making your how to a lot to be guided, not just praying for the things we want but praying for things that we feel Allah Subhana Allah will give to us because that's best for us. And yes, I know, Shanaze.
Many people lost their jobs. Oh Subhana Allah, your husband included, has to be Allahu an airman what key This is, that was the first thing I said to the brother has to be alone. aramaki right in La hawla wala quwata illa Billah everything comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to make this a means of your husband's finding an even better, more suitable, higher paid more, you know, comforting job than the one he already had. I mean, then the loss of handling data shows us in verses number 1314 and 15. We have bound every human's destiny to their neck. Okay, the destiny, the decree of everyone has already been like it's wrapped around our necks,
right. And on the Day of Judgment, we will bring forth to each person a record which they will find laid open.
So our book of deeds will be laid open in front of us, and then a loss of handle is at it, you know, says here in the urn, and it will be sent. If kita that can't be enough. Secondly,
they can see the loss of hundreds and it shows us It will be said read your record can be enough See, can you Kennedy oma at aka Hacienda, you alone are sufficient on this day to take account for yourself. Ask yourself this, my brothers and sisters, if you right now had the ability to look into your book of deeds. If you were given the permission to check and see your status and your position. Would you be happy with yourself right now? Or if you were the judge, and you were looking at the life of you, you were looking at the life of Deadwood you were looking at the life of Millennium you're looking at the life of Adam, you're looking at the life of you, we're looking at the life of
Fatima whoever it is, whatever your name is, if you are looking at the life of that person, would you as the judge be content with this person's efforts to place them into paradise? And so a lot of headway Dan is showing us in detail that read your own book Kapha B Neff, c kalyana, La Casita, you yourself are sufficient as a judge to figure out your own position.
He then says in the next verse, verse number 15, whoever chooses to be guided, it is only for their own good money data in a DD NFC, whoever chooses to be guided is only for their own good and whoever chooses to stray to go away from Islam to leave us with heavy data to distance themselves from Allah. It is only to their own loss. No soul burdened with sin, will hear will bear the burden of another.
And we would never punish a people until we have sent a messenger to warn them. So Allah Subhana Allah would not punish people until they've been warned by a messenger. All of the prophets and messengers have come my brothers and sisters, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has come, don't say, Oh, hello, no one came in 2020 We're good, we're safe. We're cool. No, we are not safe. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and left and the message was delivered or
was delivered. We need to follow the message that has come to us from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
let's move on Charlottetown
has let's go to 23
first number actually, we'll go a little bit further. Let's go to verse number 26 what do you do
miskeen our business sabini went to bed. Debbie z.
We are working
on era p
must have handled what to Hannah says give to close relatives there. Do you know when we talk about Zika People always ask this question Can I give my account to my age?
Children can I give my cat to my spouse can I give my cat to my brothers, my sisters, my siblings, my brothers and sisters.
When it comes to family, we are supposed to be looking after family already, to the point that if they are suffering, that maybe we don't need to have savings in our account, I honestly feel it's kind of shameful. It's kind of sad to see if we have a relative I'm talking about immediate relatives, right, someone who is related to us, and they are in a financial difficult financial difficulty. And we are sitting back on this cushion of wealth.
And we're not helping them and I'm not saying just give them the wealth, maybe we can employ them, maybe we can start a business for them. Maybe we can find something suitable or educate them so that they have a degree in something, you know, some skills, some skill set, that they're able to then go and find the job that they're looking for. So my brothers and sisters, when Allah Subhana Allah says gift to close relatives there do, as well as the poor and needy travelers and do not spend wastefully.
When we're wasting on ourselves and others are in need. Look at what Allah subhana wa tada says, He says, surely the wasteful are like brothers to the devils
in the mulberry and Akan, Lana Shanthi. Surely those who are wasteful are like the brothers to the devils.
And the devil shavon is ever ungrateful to his Lord.
Don't be ungrateful to Allah subhana wa to add to what he's blessed us with, use it for others, if you you know, have a little bit and you can help others people who are in need help them. If you can empower someone with that wealth, then so be it. You know, I know a brother who lives close to us, anytime we hear about someone who's in need, he says, give them my number, and I'll try and find work for them.
I'll try and find work for them. That's an absolutely amazing thing. You know, not everyone wants to just receive money, we need work, people need a regular job consistency, right? They need that that wealth coming in on a regular basis. So that brother somehow is amazing. And sometimes, you know, there was one time I asked him, I said, You know,
I don't want to mention his name.
But if you live in Milton, you probably know him, you know, this brothers have come about, I asked him once I said, Do you have some kind of business or something? Like how is it that every time someone is in need, you say, you know, give me their number, I'll get them some work? Like, do you have some business or company or something that you do that, you know, somehow you're able to provide for people?
He says no, but you know, if I could maybe, you know, give them something, anything, he's like anything, make them work. People don't want to just receive free money. He's like, if I could just give him some work, let's say he could do like, you know, he could do some paperwork for me, or, you know, he could cut my lawn or do something around the house, and I pay him more than what he's deserving for it. But he's doing some work, he'll feel a sense of honor at least, like he's not just being, you know, given money for free. So the brothers have kind of a he's trying to empower people. But you know, it's such an amazing thing. And I never really thanked him enough for it. He's
empowering them by giving them something to do or finding them a job, while at the same time not taking away their honor. Because every human being wants to feel like they're, they're useful. They have a purpose, right? And so, so how will I you know, I can go on but may Allah Subhana, Allah bless that brother, and his family, and his mother, I know his mother is with him. Now most of the time to look after him and make things easy for him and take him away from all the evils out there from a society and bring him closer to a less accountable let's add me.
See, I mean, I hope you said I mean, because because there's like visiting, if everyone says, I mean, then that's good, more people will want to do good things and you
will make do I mentioned here and everyone will be able to say me as well. Right? Then Allah Subhana Allah says in verse number 28, he says, but if you must turn them down, because you lack the means to give so if you don't have the wealth, and you need to turn someone down, while hoping to receive your Lord's bounty, then at least give them a kind word, at least say something nice about them so glad does that come along, hate on everyone on Facebook and YouTube is now
you know, saying I mean Allah subhana wa tada bless all of you for that. And the more that you say, I mean, the more encourages people to actually come on and watch and they will benefit as well. So the more that you type in, the more that you say in the comment.
This section actually draws people closer to the streaming the live stream that we're doing. And then you know, Subhanallah, it makes it easier for people to benefit, and you will get the reward of what people benefit from this session. I mean, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make easy for everyone to benefit from what is being shared, not just me, you're coming and learning you share it with others. And if you invite someone else to come, and they learn from from the session, then they will also bless you know, they will benefit but you will get the benefit of their benefit as well. Right, from a lesser kind of what's ahead. Now everyone's saying, good, I love it. So I was apparently
dinosaurs, but if you have nothing to give them because you lack in means while hoping to receive your Lord's bounty used to want you you're asking a lot, hold on, please make it easy for me, for me to help this person. Well, please make it easy for me to help these people. Unless the penalties are there then says then at least say a good thing to them, say something nice to them, make a draft for them. May Allah subhanaw taala take you out of hardship, and bring you into prosperity mailbox penalties and take you out of this darkness and bring you into light. You know, say something nice to the mailbox kindly grant you the best of this dunya and, you know, big home and children and, and
whatever piety and, and, and and you know memorization and so on, and bless you with the highest level of Paradise, and then somehow no other person feels good, right?
And then Allah Subhana Allah says, Do not be so tight fisted. Don't be so tight fisted for you will be blameworthy nor so open handed, for you will end up in poverty. Look how Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us to find that balance. Don't be people that are so stingy, we're gonna hold on to things. No, it's mine. It's mine. I'm keeping it to myself. But also at the same time. Don't be someone who says here, take it, take it take everything, and you have nothing. And your family then starts to complain. And your children start to complain and your family leaves you and people abandon you. Because you have nothing to your name. You need to be wise my brothers and sisters, the prophets
have a lovely idea. He was selling them. Yes, he had nothing at the end of the day. But he was the Prophet and Messenger of Allah Subhana Allah, and he still had investments, he still had things that were going for him. And the profits in the long run he was selling them was not one to just give everything away and leave his family in a situation where they had nothing. Every single one of the family members of the profits on a longer it was send them had their home. They had a home. Am I providing a home for my spouse? Or am I providing a home for me and my spouse is just living there? Right? That's something we need to ask ourselves the profits on a longer I think you ascend them
every single one of his wives had their own home.
And he had a home to himself, just behind the house of each of the lover. And now, if you come out of the house of that shuttle, the Aloha and when you're walking towards the member of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, just behind it. That was where the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his home.
So my brothers and sisters, I know people are saying, but it was easy to own a home at that time really was it? You think it was easy? Did they have everything that we had? It wasn't that easy. My brothers and sisters. Yes, it was a piece of land. But you had to buy that piece of land. And the home was just made out of bricks, but our homes are just made out of bricks. Right and we have insulation to it. But we could go a little bit simple sometimes and not as big. I'm not saying that we need to give up everything of this dunya or what I'm saying is live within your means because this is what a lot of Han went to Allah is telling us to do here. Surely your Lord to give abundant
or limited provisions to whoever he wills, He is certainly all aware all seeing of his servants, be pleased my brothers and sisters be happy and content with what Allah Subhana which Allah has given to us. If Allah has given you a small apartment and hamdulillah if Allah Subhana Medina has given to you a huge home with extra bedrooms, you don't even know what to do with them. And hamdulillah I have Hannelore
have been to homes that have areas in them that haven't been walked into in maybe months.
Would you believe that? I've been to homes that have areas in them in the house, that people have not walked into that area or that room for maybe a couple of months. It's never been used.
That's how big the homes that I've seen and witnessed not lived in. Trust me I don't live in that. I gotta like turn sideways to make my way through the homes of times, right. And being tall some kind of law you know, you're always you always need more space heroes bumping your hands everywhere. I know the house we were living in. I used to get upset. I couldn't. You know, in the shower, I couldn't move. I was like, I can't even
wash my hair. So Pamela, look how Allah Subhana Allah has blessed some people, you know, I've been to anyways, I won't say where I've been. But I've seen the rich, and they're not content. And I've seen the poor, and they're not content, and they've seen the poor, and they're extremely content while at the same time I've seen the rich, and they're hamdulillah content. And so my brothers and sisters, you could be rich or you could be poor. The question is, Are you pleased and happy and satisfied with what Allah subhana wa tada has given to us? hamdulillah everything that we have Alhamdulillah right, everything we don't have Alhamdulillah it's protection from something else. I
always tell people you know, and hamdulillah I don't own a home and they're like, Why? Why wouldn't you want to own a home? I say first of all, I can't afford it. Like what if you could afford it? Say even if I could afford it, something happens. The shingles fly off the roof. There's a few $1,000 of repairs, right? You get water damage, a few $1,000 of repairs. You know the house gets old you need to repair the driveway a few 1000 you're constantly putting putting putting more and more into it some kind of law is difficult. And so you know, the more you own, the more you have to pay, the less you own, maybe the less you have to pay Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows best. And then we need to
move on because it's 810 and we're still unsold. It is far. So we are going to move to verse number.
In verse number 75, to 73 to 75, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is told by Allah subhana wa tada that had he given into, you know, the the claims and the pressure of what this story of what the moose unicorn were saying that he would have surely punished the profits on longer and he was alone. And he mentioned that he would have received double the punishment because of who he is. You would have received an extremely difficult punishment from Allah Subhana Allah, but Allah subhanho wa Taala saved him. He then shows us in verse number 78, Allah Subhana which Allah says ugliness wanna daddy goon op shenzi ina Versace Lainey Welcome
to jump in.
Vegeta you can ms Ruda well, Mina Laney jDb he
the was a pen with Anna says observe the prayer from the decline of the Sun until the darkness of the night. Right important time. First of all, not the evening time.
And the dawn prayer What about the dawn prayer for certainly the done prayer is witnessed by angels will earn in federal in an allegedly Canada mushroom.
And you'll notice at the time of fudge of gold and is recited more in that prayer, it's a shorter prayer, but there's more and it's recited. And that's the best time as well. So Pamela just the other. Yesterday, we were on a whatsapp group with our, with the AJAX students, the graduates of Ajax right students that studied there. And one of the you know, there was a lot of messages that went through and it was in the, in the, you know, mid afternoon. And one of the, you know, the students, he was not one of my classmates. I was one of the earlier students and so he posted on the group he says Mashallah, all of you, you know, half of the look, we're an island, you know, scholars
and stuff. You guys have so much time to chat on WhatsApp, you don't have time for revision of the plan. So, you know, it's like you don't even have to recite or anything. And some have a lot I remember I replied and I said, the best time to revise your plan is at budget time.
And so some kind of letter was just a little bit of a joke because we always used to we used to wake up before fudger and memorize right before fudge was our time to memorize and to refresh and polish up on what we memorized so that it would be there and solid in our memory.
So Allah Subhana Allah says we'll put an infringer in an alpha God can have a schreuder for certainly the done prayer is witnessed by the angels will mean a lady for the head Jedi, he then also can retaliate, says and rise at the last part of the night right during the night. But that would be nephila Tilak, offering additional prayers eisah and yoga hatha counter will come upon them mahamudra so your Lord may raise you to a station of praise
What is that station of praise?
Allah subhana wa tada
you know what we see and there's a video that I really want to look for had it in my phone and I can't find it. A video from one of the scholars May Allah subhana wa Jalla have mercy upon him, he's going through a difficult time in his life, one of the senior scholars, he mentioned the importance of 200 and the importance of the Knights prayer, and how those were chosen by a wasp. Which
you feel as though what are they doing wrong?
What am I? Why am I not asking how come I am not able to easily wake up and some kind of like, you know, back in the day, it used to be so easy for us to get up and read memorizing. And now some how to love feels difficult. Why? Allah subhana wa etana, you know, is testing us more, it's going to get harder, it's going to get more difficult. We have to keep pushing, keep pushing, keep pushing, you reach a level of honor with a law, don't think that you reach that level. And now you're just going to cruise control your way through life. No, you reach that level, which means you need to push higher and push higher and push higher to higher boundaries, higher levels continue to achieve
more and more with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So my brothers and sisters, it's important for us to try and seek that stick that status with a Muslim Hannah with Hannah, we move on to verse number 85 ways to guarantee your Holy Roman Emily Robbie 182 minella enemy Illa Allah Allah, Allah Subhana, which Allah says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they asked you about the spirit about the rule about the soul, say its nature is known only to my Lord, and you, as in humanity, have only been given a little bit of knowledge pertaining to the soul. And I love asking this question. And I'm going to ask it again, because over time, we tend to forget
all ask this question. For those of you who live in Milton, or for those of you who have who have heard me answering this before, then don't answer it. Okay. Is it possible let's let other people answer. Okay, give them the chance, let them think let them explore in their minds. Let me ask you this question. comment in the chat session. Is it possible
for someone to have two souls in their body at one point in time?
Is it possible for someone to have two souls in their body? And I'm not talking about jinn, not talking about ghosts and all that stuff? No, no, no, no talking about human being having two souls contained within their body at one point in time. Is it possible?
I need to
turn How am I going to see this? I'm going to move these so I don't move the
Shama. I'll keep that one there. All right. I could see this and I can see that Okay. Yes, it is. Okay.
Someone is being too quick. Yes. Someone says no, no, no, yes. No. Okay, what else? Instagram here, yellow iccm. Instagram. Is it possible for someone to have souls in their body? They heard me say that already. All right. Yes, yes. Yes.
Is it possible for the answer to that is, yes, it is possible for someone to have two souls contained within their body at one point in time. How? Okay, here you go.
No men can have two souls in their body at the same time, but women have been given that level of honor and status with a law that they can have two souls, they can have three souls, they can have four souls, they can have five souls, they can have six souls, they can have seven souls, they can have eight souls contained within their body at the same time.
A woman who is pregnant, if she's pregnant with twins, then she has three souls. If she's pregnant with triplets, then there's four souls pregnant with triplets, quintuplets, right? quadruplets, all these different things, right? Allah Subhana, which Allah has given a woman, no men can have that status and people say, oh, Islam puts women down. No, no, Allah subhanho wa Taala is just, he gives honor to those who he wills. And so in this case, women have been given that level of honor that no men can ever have
multiple souls in their body at one point in time. Allahu Akbar.
Isn't that amazing?
Isn't that amazing? Her soul and the soul of the child within her body of law?
That is absolutely amazing. And Allah subhana wa tada says that He has given us only a little bit of knowledge with regards to the soul. Okay? We move on to which sua Surah Al calf, we move to sort of through calf.
First of all before I begin sort of To recap, remember, we are minutes away from Friday. Okay, we're minutes away from Friday, Friday starts at muffling time, on Thursday, okay, so Thursday evening at sunset, that is the beginning of Friday. And so it is from the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to recite surah to calf, and he encouraged that we recite sort of to the calf on the Friday, so make sure that tonight or tomorrow sometime you have the ability to recite Surah Al calf, in fact, if that was something that you make as a bull for yourself throughout the month of Ramadan, to sorry to achieve throughout this month, and hamdulillah that will be great, right? And so one
thing that we see is whoever memorizes the first 10 verses of surah Toka house, as is mentioned by the prophet sallallahu wasallam. Whoever mentioned the first 10 as of sola to the calf, will be protected from the judge from the fitness of the jet. Now it's not just memorizing them, it's memorizing them, understanding them and implementing these is into our lives, right. Then we also see my brothers and sisters.
Then we see my brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also mentioned whoever recites sort of took off on Friday, it will illuminate to them with no more from one Friday to the next. We will be alone illuminated with more, right from one Friday till next. So as soon as Friday comes around, what happens is, we see this, you recite sort of to calf.
Alright, little joke having some fun. So it's important for us to learn sooner to calf, but to recite it as well. And people ask, is there a difference in reward in reciting the Arabic as opposed to reciting English or a translation? Yes, of course there is. So we're saying it in Arabic, that is where the greater reward is, and then learn it and understand it. That's the additional amount of reward. So Alyssa pedowitz and it shows us the importance of that through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tried to memorize the first 10 is of sauna and cuff and also tried to recite the entire sort of on Friday, maybe tomorrow. I know she does this every Friday, I think
around three o'clock on Instagram, he does a recitation of surah two accounts and I joined in a couple of times and recited there as well.
Then Allah subhana wa tada shows us in this surah and we won't take much more time because it's almost time for a thought. But he begins a story of those who are trapped in the cave and sort of to recap is titled The cave, right? So those who are trapped in the cave, and how long are they trapped for? Who knows? Let's see who knows type in the comment section. How many years are these people trapped in the cave as and they went to the cave and they slept for how many years? Almost without actually mentions it in the quote and then just typing in the comments section. And let's see if you know how many years that people stayed in the cave. Okay, Nizam scene Nizami scene. You got it.
Alhamdulillah Who else? Okay, NIDA Sha 309 years very good. Well, we'll find a very close alasa pedowitz anuses There we go. 309 years I'm Bill Hamid of the fairy or of last year or
fee trying to figure that out. I'm so happy that can't remember your last name of Bill Hamid I love it a lot. Right? I need to see it written in Arabic In order for me to know that honey, but I hope you're doing well and I hope your family as well also. So 309 years old while you bet it is so nice to see you. Commenting there may have been some kind of a doubt and make it easy for you and your family. I wish to see your children again sometime soon. inshallah. Oh, someone smarter with their 308 years. 308.5 years? No, it's 309 years. And so they go into this cave to protect themselves from what's happening outside and they end up sleeping for 309 years. We will continue with this story
tomorrow in sha Allah to Allah because we continue with the soda tomorrow. But an important lesson that we've learned here in verse number 23 is the lesson of seeing insha Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by the machete Kuhn, a question about those who came in the past and
of Laffy Hamdulillah, Abdul Hamid, that last year, I had a classmate who was adolescent
Sorry. That's why I was like thinking there might be some connection. So loss of bandwidth data shows us, you know, the profits on the long ladder he was someone was asked, and he said, I will get you the answer tomorrow. But he forgot to say insha Allah, and because of that Allah Subhana. Allah was teaching the prophets on a longer and he was tell him a lesson, don't say that you're going to do something without linking it to a law. Because without that, without the help of a loss of hand without it, nothing can happen. And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the next day did not have the answer for the machine gun. And they started to say, you see, he's not a true prophet.
There's no revelation coming to him. It's been delayed, maybe he's being punished, all of these things started to be said about the Prophet sallallahu. And he was sending them which were of course not true. The reason why Allah Subhana Allah stopped that was because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say insha Allah. So we learn here as a lesson my brothers and sisters, are you going to break your fast in a few minutes in five minutes? What do we say? In sha Allah? Allah you better think does that come along? Okay, that may Allah Subhana Allah accept from every single one of us. Now loss of habitat and make them earn a means of attaining a higher level of paradise. Now,
while some hanworth Allah grant is to all those that are suffering and struggling in different countries around the world, I ask Allah Subhana Allah to remove this pandemic from from the world so that we are able to go back to a normal lifestyle but a lifestyle that is not normal in the sense of the sins that people were committing. It is normal in the sense that we come back to the normal ways, but we are more conscious and closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. I asked her about some Hannah who went to Africa to grant us blessings in this life throughout this month of Ramadan that will make us feel happier in life and make us from amongst those who feel the norm in our lives from week
to week to week because we make it a habit to recite sort of to kind of ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to open our hearts to his Deen for Allah subhanho wa Taala is all that we need in this world has been a law when there are many Joaquin Jazakallah haven I mean, I've got a lot of them are some of our who are sentimental about a Canon abena mahamadou Allah Allah subhanahu wa sallam was sent Mr aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
