Well, I have Amanda Rahim al hamdu
Lillahi Rabbil alameen de
slean. Please somebody who is Sidley MD in the San Joaquin Valley, my brothers and my son Mr alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato
today is part two day two of our 30 and 30 and 100 Allah and considering is day two it still is day one of Ramadan. Right so I typically like to do this I like to start with the explanation of what we're going to be reciting that night and So, yesterday I started before selected also which is before
of Ramadan. Right, so before Ramadan, however, we ended up resigning in salt out right, those of you who recited so romantic, you're asking are we live? Yes, we are live and have been in LA.
So we started yesterday, today is part two, we're going to be looking at the second Joseph and inshallah to Anna. And some of the I add to that, you know, might go into the first job or a third job, you know, some days, we might intermix some of the ads, and go beyond the second job to the third, for example, or let's say, on the 15th day, we might, you know, cover some of the verses that go into the 16th shows maybe just because of context and so on. But I always will highlight the
verse number and the sutra that we are focusing on inshallah,
I hope that everyone is enjoying their first day of fasting, I hope that it's not too difficult for every single one of you, you'll notice that I am live streaming for downstairs today. And that's simply because the internet was not the greatest yesterday and it kept cutting off. So I decided to, you know, transfer the setup from upstairs to downstairs temporarily. So it's kind of interesting, because I have the iPad and the laptop and a phone and a phone. So it's kind of like, super interesting to love. But this is what you got to do during the month of Ramadan, right, you need to go the distance. So when you all have to struggle with parking, and we get the reserved parking
spot. Now you don't have to worry about parking, but I have to struggle with trying to fit devices on the table. Right. So there's, there's always that game of Tetris that's being played on the left. So we'll jump right into it in sha Allah to add a motive is that 816 today, if I'm not mistaken, so we'll finish up around 810 that will give everyone a good five or six minutes to you know, get seated for, for motive and make dua because remember that last hour in the day is important to make do asking Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness. And there's two times of joy for the person who's fasting, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that there's two times of joy for
the fasting person, there's joy of fasting and breaking your fast, right, so breaking your fast after a long day of fasting, you enjoy the fact that you're now eating that food and you know, it's entering into your system, you've been craving it and waiting for it and smelling it. So if you hear a little bit of noise coming from that side over there, that's my wife cooking up some nice stuff, home smells good luck. But you know, you got to resist it.
And then the second time of joy for the fasting person is as we learn in the some of the conference and along with some of them, that you know, we break our past we're happy but also the rewards that we get for fasting are so immense and so great that we will see them when we're with a loss of habitat and and remember the gates of
the gates of Paradise that are specific for those who fasted, they will be opened and ready for those who are regular in fasting to enter those gates of oblivion. And to go meet Allah subhanho wa jal and see the face of a loss of Canada who is Allah in paradise. So that is, you know, the second time of joy for the fasting person knowing that you are doing whatever you're doing for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah and only for Allah Subhan with Allah and no other reason other than that, okay.
So we'll head over to someone else with a bucket up verse number 100. And, in fact, at the very beginning of the show about right from the beginning of the sutra, Allah Subhana Allah is showing us not the beginning of the sort of the beginning of the Jews so Allah Subhana Allah shows us say a fool to sue for help me in a nasty lower level man filati humility can ya ha so here I was with Alice talking about the Fiddler and the mentioning of the Fiddler is important because a lot of penalties added you know, tells us but what would you have to show for honesty, they'll have a right to make sure that we are sending facing the good low and we're praying our Salah, so we know that
the good law changed, right the direction of prayer changed in the earlier stages of the prophets of Allah and
To asylum, he would stand facing facing baits and muck this right in Jerusalem
or most of the UK saw and then shifted from there to Mecca, right. So the direction of the Fiddler, you know changed for, for them, you know, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was a, you know, 360 degree change, because when it was towards Jerusalem, it was straight north, from Medina. And then when the direction changed, Mecca is actually south of Medina. Right. So, the direction changed. going south, right. So in Medina, we actually pray facing south. And this is why it's important for us to know the direction of the Fiddler because it's, it's what brings us all together. So how would you look at you know, pictures or videos now, if you go to the
live streaming of lukka, and you see how the saga is taking place over there, there's just a few people who I was looking at it this morning with my wife and I was saying some handle on the group, which is just a few.
A few rows of people standing there praying to a loss of Henry's had it in front of the camera. They're like the workers, the cleaners, you know, the employees and staff of mosquito how long
if I said 360 degrees is optimal, okay, the municipal head for the that correction 180 degrees, right changed 180 degrees,
the staff that are praying and mustard that is just a few of them. And I was telling my wife, I'm like, this is like how it was during the time of the Prophet sent along there. And he was sending just a few people. And I and I pointed out, you know, that time the story of Omar didn't know how God could be alone. And when he embraces Islam, right. And, you know, afterwards when he leads the Muslims into the central parts of Makkah, where the house is where the camera is, and, you know, he's there leading them, and no one touches the Muslim oma, every single person, you know, the Muslim corner just in the distance they're watching, no one dared to come there, the Muslims,
because in their presence was a member of the alumni. So, you know, it was really, really nice to see. And as Muslims here, wherever we are on Earth, we're all facing one direction. But that's an indication for us to know our Deen enough to explain it to others as well. We do not worship the gods. Right, we do not worship the Kaaba, we do not stand facing the karma, because we're worshiping it, it's just a direction that we stand facing in unison to make sure that every single one of the Muslims, you know, is is showing that element or aspect of unity, that is them, you know, puts a huge importance on for us in our lives.
So, you know, those verses are mentioned at the beginning of the second just, if we skipped to verse number 152 to 157, right, verse 152, to 157. And like I said yesterday would be good if people kept their must have with them, or a translation of a quote, and in front of them. An easy to read translation nowadays, that's available in English would be the clear for us, which was led by Dr. Mustapha hubub. So that would be something beneficial for everyone to get their hands on. You can either purchase it online or you can go to four n.com. Right. If you go to n.com you'll be able to select which translation you want and one of them is Dr. Mustapha farms translation. For those who
live in the GTA Doc, Dr. Mustapha is actually the Imam at Anatolia Islamic center. So you know, it's nice to know that one of the more famous, you know, recent translations of the Quran is from any meme that we hear in the GTA, you know, meets regularly and gets a benefit from quite often come to LA.
So verse number 152 to 157 remember, and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala Okay, remember and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala at a loss of Henry's Allah says birdcall Mooney como como escudo Rooney. You want to
remember me? I will remember you, and thank me and never be ungrateful, right? Never be ungrateful to almost kind of wish I had. He then says, Yeah, Latina man was staring this summer he was
in America saw the
whenever a new one be saying
he will enjoy
You want to falsely mean and
what the shear is odd in a lady in either
So what was the plan with Anna points out these is here, you know he first starts off by reminding us to remember him right reminding us to remember him so unless you kindly to anuses remember me, I will remember you. So anytime in life that you feel that you're going through hardship and difficulty, remember a lesson kind of went at it. And I'll give you an example my brothers and sisters.
This morning, one of the brothers in our community messaged me his father just passed away in 1991, in that Elijah Rajon, his father passed away. And I think if I'm not mistaken, is this day, the very first night, sorry, the second night, the first day of fasting of Ramadan last year, if I'm not mistaken, it was the very first or second day, the same brother came into my office. And you know, we spoke about his situation and so on. And he was asking me some questions about taking care of his parents and his father and so on. And somehow that was absolutely amazing. Because he messaged me this morning, you know, just before footage of his, his father passed away. And this was what he was
worried about last year on a mobile phone. And, you know, it just so happens that Hamdulillah, Allah Subhana, Allah allowed him to be there, his family to be there, in, you know, the service of his father and visiting him and taking care of him. And hamdulillah his mother is still alive as well, you know, so taking care of them. But you know, just Tuesday, his father tested positive for COVID-19. And she passed away today. One thing that's beautiful that he told me about his father, his that his father would always, always, always pray to Him. Right? Always praise 100 and Allah subhana wa, tada took his soul at the time of,
right, it's time to meet this earth was the time when most people are tucked away in bed, but in heaven, and not just before, sometimes in fudger, on the first day of Ramadan, everyone's awake, right? So families awake, people are awake, people are eating. And so unless of Henry's added, you know,
gave that that order that commend to the angels to take him back, so that he returns to his family. So he returns to a lot and leaves his family during the month of Ramadan. You know, the very first morning of beginning our fast during this blessed month and humbling. But remember, Allah and Allah will remember you. And the brother was just messaging me now, because we were coordinating for the jenessa tomorrow, and he was saying, I just can't sleep at night. And I can imagine, right, I don't blame him for not being able to sleep at night, of course, your father just passed away, one of your parents just passed away. It I can't imagine how difficult it must be right? While at the same time
remember Allah, Allah will remember you, and thank Allah and do not be ungrateful. And the brothers showed that true thankfulness, how to love true thankfulness. He said, You know what it was a year ago, and I was thinking he was thinking of, you know, relocating, and so on. And he stayed for the sake of being close to his father, and looking after him, you know, being there to be able to take care and look after him and visit him and so on and so forth. And so he was able to do that for one whole year. Now, the following Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala added, you know,
had the angels take his soul away, which is interesting, because the brother was patient with it, he was patient, he let go of a very decent job and so on, just for the sake of, you know, pleasing Allah subhanho data through taking care of your parents. And so when we are grateful to Allah subhanho to Allah, and we're thankful to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, He will never forget us, He will never, you know, ignore us, He will never, you know, leave us in a condition or a state or a situation where we have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to. Right. So that's, you know, something that we need to keep in the back of our minds all the time, then the loss of bandwidth and it says,
Yeah, you're living at home and stepping over, somebody was saw that. Now, how do we remember a lot? How do we seek that newness and comfort with a lesser kind of data? He says all believers seek comfort in patience and prayer. Right? seek comfort in patience and prayer with a loss of hundreds if not a lot of people will ask how do I gain patience through a difficult time in my life?
The answer is crazy. Find patience, you will find that you become patient. The more you pray, the closer you come to Allah
Penwith added, the more at ease you are you put your head to the ground, you feel insignificant you feel like this world, there's nothing to it. So Allah subhanho wa Jalla, you know, gave us everything that will take everything away, we probably will take us away before he takes everything else that we have away from us, right? Usually for those who are living, you know, in a Western context, right, the Western society, the things we have will live longer than we do.
Right now, that's amazing. But Allah subhanho wa jal is reminding us seek patience in a loss of headwinds add, pray to Allah, and you will feel that Sakina you will feel that tranquility. And then he mentions that he will test us when, whenever the weather conditions him, you know, hopefully we'll have one that's similar and while he will unfussy with them a lot less time with Adam, we mentioned these ads all the time, especially when someone passes away. He says we will certainly test you with a touch of fear and famine and loss of property life and crops give good news to those who patiently endure a loss of bandwidth and then says, well, best shoot is salvini. Right good.
Glad tidings to those who who are patient with you don't fear they're scared of things right now. Everyone's scared. COVID-19 Coronavirus, everyone's scared, right. So kinda like
sometimes you don't even know what to do. Right? You don't even know how to protect yourself. You don't know how to prepare for it. You don't know how to, like bring something into your home? Are you supposed to wash it or sanitize it? What are you supposed to do? Right? So people are scared. People are concerned people are nervous people have anxiety, unless testing us with that, unless testing us with it. It's hard. It's easy to say but it's hard to do. But we need to try. And the way that we try is through saliva and through remembering a lot. How do we remember a look through account? A lot of them of Finland. Whereas in a lot of Morocco we learn in a great make dua to Allah
subhanho wa Taala do lots of lots of Vicar, some panelo and hamdulillah. Without either in the lower
right the prophets Allah Allah you ascend them says, Can you attend to things that if we say they're heavy on the scale,
and they're light on the tongue, so kind of low will be handy here, some handlebar valving, two statements, two phrases, some have a lower end. So have a look at our when we say the heavy on the scale, but super late on our tongue really easy to do, what are we doing? We are remembering a love, when you remember, a lot of love remembers you, right? So make it a point that we remember lots of penalties. And always, and a loss of Hannah who went to Hana will never ever leave us in a situation that we are lost. Right?
We then move on. My brothers and sisters, as the last panel with Adam mentioned, you'll test us with a number of things, but I'm going to go through it in Super detail. But he then says, well, best sheet is Savi glad tidings to those who are patient with the hardships that come to them. Who are these patient people and lean at you that I saw that total fever. They are the people who when they are afflicted with something really hard, they don't know what to do is like you hit the wall, you don't know where else to go, you're stuck. You're like, Oh man, this is crazy, right? Like pulling your hair, if you didn't have any hair left, right, you're pulling your hair out, or the hair is all
turning gray. You don't know what to do anymore. And Edina either or saw but mostly the people who when they're afflicted with a hardship
in an 11
they back away from the excitement. And they're patient with the patient with a lot. They say in that in life. We, I reminded myself I belong to allow that person who passed away that hardship that's going on the money that's lost, the love is lost the car that smashed in the accident, whatever it is, whatever has happened, it's lost, we belong to a lot, we will also return to a lot. So whatever has been broken down or taken away or destroyed or returned to a law,
it's a reminder that we as well will return to a month. So when we lose something, and 100 enough, we're still here, look at the positivity and 100 in love, we're still here, and 100 in love, we can still breathe, and hamdulillah we can still speak and hamdulillah I could still pray one more day. And hamdulillah it could still fast one more day. And hamdulillah I could still recite one more page of the Quran and 100 in that I could still taste a date or give a date to someone else so they can break their past and I get the reward for it. Right and hamdulillah all the beautiful foods that we're waiting to eat right now. Right? All those beautiful foods that we're just waiting to indulge
in and you smell it you're like, Oh, I could smell this and I could smell that I smell all these things I get in my belly, right? You just want it and how do they love will still be able to taste shuttle. Right? And so be thankful to Allah Subhana Allah
And then Allah Subhana, Allah tells us who these people are.
you can really you want to
he can do.
Allah subhana wa where to enter that says they're the ones who will receive a lot of blessings and mercy, they will receive the mercy and blessings from above their patient. They've been hit with hardship, they're going through it. It's not easy, everyone is going through it. But those were patient with it, who returned to Allah who connect with the lesson plan with Anna, those are the ones who Allah Subhana, Allah says, will receive His blessings of His mercy. And it is they who are rightly guided, because they turn to Allah, they didn't turn anywhere else, right? We move on and shuttling Montana. I always love explaining these verses, because I think every single day, we need
a reminder, every single day, we need reminders of, you know, what was going through and how hard it is, for us in our lives and the things that we are faced with.
We move on, let's move on to verse number 160. Fourth, look, one of the beautiful things about the four iron is that it's filled with signs of a loss of Hamlet and his greatness, you know, filled with elements of
just simple things around us that we take for granted but a loss of hand with Adam without his health without, you know, without the strength and power and mites of a muscle and without it we wouldn't be able to cherish these things. For example.
Fresh air, you know, going outside, just taking a deep breath nowadays, you go outside, you
know, what if I inhaled Coronavirus,
right. So have a look. So then people put a mask on, right? Because they're worried Okay, what if I inhaled it? Now I gotta cover my mouth, right? So we can no longer read. So how am I friend of mine the other day he went out he was messaging on the roof, he was saying he wore a mask to know do his groceries and he was wearing the mask for like four hours, you know, went out he had to do a few things you came home. His first thing that he mentioned to us was, you know,
so much gratitude to those sisters who not only wear hijab, but wearing niqab and they withstand, you know, the looks of the people in society and the hardship and difficulty of reading. And you know, not being able to just do things as easily, but that sacrifice is done for a loss of habitat is done for a lot for no other reason not for a person not for a husband, not for something done for a loss of kind of where it's at. Right. Then here in verse number 164. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us His Signs of greatness, right and proofs of tawheed proof of the existence of a loss of data and his oneness.
He says, enough, he called it the center summer was he when he was 18. He was
wonderful King, let me finish factory.
was asleep. He was so happy, have you suffered even
in the economy.
And as you mentioned, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, the alternate, sorry alternation of the day and the nights, right, and the creation of the heavens and the earth. So the sky is and the earth.
It itself, right, the creation of it. And the alternation of the day and the Knights of handler, the light is coming, right and we're like, oh my god, time to break our fast, right? The night and the day or the day in the night, and the ship that sails at sea for the benefit of humanity, love across. Look at that, you know, every single year we can go through the same verses or every single day you can go through the same I have to earn and you will notice that because of what's happening that day, there's a slight different way that that verse will impact you. So here, look, Allah Subhana Allah mentions the ships that sail the sea for the benefit of humanity.
You remember when the borders closed between countries, and some places between provinces, maybe even states?
Right, when the borders closed and people were concerned, how were we going to get toilet paper?
Some kind of love, right? People started going crazy for toilet paper now if you go to the store to see lots of toilet paper right, our friends in Australia so kind of I think they went the craziest for toilet paper like Australia people were fighting security was being called armed guards standing by making sure people are taking one package of toilet paper and not like 10 or 20 packages. So how to look at this Allah has blessed us with multiple different resources
simple example my brothers and sisters. The profits on the longer I think he will send them didn't have toilet paper. We taught this to our students. What did they used to use? stones? smooth stones, right a stone that's very smooth three of them. And that's what they used to use. Right? It was three smooth stones and then some water if they had right to wash themselves. Somehow them love nowadays, we don't have toilet paper, we're like, oh, what do we do? Right? There's so many things that we can do. There's so many things that we use instead of water. For most of us especially those who are watching here. I'm pretty sure anyone who's watching has water or access to water. There are
people in countries who don't have access to water I've been to a place where some kind of love you know that people would get up in the morning and they would bring their you know big jugs like empty jugs and bring them to the fishermen that were going out at sea because the area there in the water is very polluted so the fishermen that would go out they would bring the jugs they would fill them up and bring them back in the evening and that was the water that the people would use no filtration nothing right just the water from the sea that's the water that they would have to use some handle Oh and I saw that I was like you know look at us we just opened a tab you can put your glass under
it but still we're like oh no brother Don't drink that water there's too much fluoride there's too much chlorine there's too much this there's too much that the 100 law this we have it right it's cleaned for us yeah, there might be things you know we can debate back and forth if this is good or not. But at the end of the day we have it we have it there are people who don't and so loss of habitat is showing us this ship that sails at sea for the benefit of humanity you know when the ship stops and it can't come in because we're all worried right you saw the you know the cruise ships that were stuck there and people were stuck inside the cruise ships we've had a long look how it was
handled with added change things around this year for us to look at the end in a completely different light to appreciate even the groceries that have come to us that may have been coming may have come from another country. One thing that I love is oranges from South Africa.
Oranges navel oranges from South Africa I love love them so much some kind of love you know people I remember growing up we used to sell when we were going to school we used to sell oranges from Florida right navel oranges from Florida and we used to like sell boxes of them you know to raise money for you know causes or you know organizations or our school might need things you know so we used to do that as children in elementary school. And now somehow you wake up and I'm like forget to Florida orange so kind of out of the South African orange you just you know you put in your mouth if you want more and then somehow people compare it to other things. Or you know the it's the season
the season is coming right the mango season is coming john saw season right the weather's changing winter ends and hamdulillah that's the first thing on my mind is like where are these mangoes? When are they coming? Of course we need to wait until about June right but when the mangoes come Imagine if they couldn't come up like oh this whole year we're going without Johnson mangoes right? For those who don't know those are the world's best mangoes they come from Pakistan
right what's the kind of like you or even the Thai coconut right the Thai coconut such a beautiful thing that young Thai coconut you cut the top off and you drink it the water is so
so nice so smooth and humble enough right and then you have the you know the flesh inside is like jelly and you just put in your mouth and it like melts in your mouth how to love the creation of a lesson how do we add it when the borders are closed? What are you going to do right even the orange from Florida we can get forget about South Africa we can get it from Florida which means here in Canada we don't really grow oranges to my knowledge right it's not warm enough. So where are we going to get oranges from? We wouldn't right so now we'd have a shortage of things so what lesson can we add is reminding us in that the hungry somehow it will eat up the lady when the howdy What if
we can Let's eat anything back and we may in fairness.
Well now he's on along with me this
evening. In fact to be he'll
be he'll our demo to The
Loss of penalties and then says the rain that's sent down from a lot from the skies, reviving the earth after its death.
Here in Canada, the Earth would get great like it was frozen, Frozen, if you had grass, your grasses frozen is pretty much dead, right? It's Brown. And then the weather changes, it gets warm. And what happens the water drops on it and it starts to turn green. And now it's so beautiful and green. And we're seeing the buds outside the window and looking at the buds outside the window forming on the ends of the branches of the trees and the plants. So how to love very soon it's gonna be green back to the season that I love the summer season. Right? And all the beautiful colors and all the beautiful fruits and all the beautiful, you know, greens analyze Amazing, right? The color itself,
so many different shapes my favorite color, by the way. Shameless plug, but some kind of a, you know, Allah Subhana. Allah is mentioning they're reviving the earth after its death. Who does that? Allah, Allah does it, you know, we're waiting for the weather to change to get better and come to love being drawn to Allah because without the help of Allah, it could snow all year, like the last few weeks, all we've been seeing is Snow, snow, snow, you know, a few days, just freezing cold, we got warm weather and then cold again, unless you handle it, and you can keep it cold all year long. Then what are we going to do? Some blessing from reviving the earth after his death. Then Allah
Subhana Allah says, the scattering of all kinds of creatures throughout
all different kinds of creatures. We just moved out of our home. And, you know, the person that was moving into it when they came to see your place.
You know, one of the questions that they asked was, Do you guys have like, you know, bugs in the house? like yeah, of course there's bugs to house. Right? There's bugs bugs from outside, they come in, right. They're like, no, like, you know, the centipedes. Right. Do you guys have centipedes? Well, if you have any, any home that has a basement, you're pretty much gonna see that in Canada. It's just, it's Canada. Welcome. Right below. It is. We don't like them, right? We jumped like crazy. The other day, I was going down the stairs over here. And it was one of the steps was going down. I saw it I was like,
this is crazy, right? So how to love this massive centipede. And I just jumped in and ran back upstairs like Yo, yo, give me a slip or something to get rid of this thing. So how long is huge, right? You take care of it. It's like, the legs are going crazy. It's a creation of a loss of kindness. And it's still at the end of the day, the secretion of a lump and is there for a reason there's a purpose for it. There's a purpose for everything, every one of the creations of Allah Subhana Allah to add, and the beautiful creatures, we're not just going to mention the bugs and the insects who mentioned like, you know, my typical animal dawn thing is to talk about burgers,
especially now, at the end of the day. For those of you that are watching in Malaysia, I know it's early morning, those that are watching you watching in Australia, May Allah help you. Well, we're about to break our fast and hamdulillah imagine a nice big juicy burgers.
Right? I was hungry was a blessing from Allah. And so here, Allah Subhana Allah is showing us you know, in the creatures he's provided for us on Earth, some of them are highlighted and some of them or how long, some of them give us personal benefits as well. Not just in terms of food, you know, a horse you can get on a horse and ride it's such a beautiful animals and how to love and the sound of it, you know, the sound of it, you know, galloping, you know, absolutely amazing. The sound of it would
suck how to love like, which animal does that amazing kind of love. And then also kind of with added points out the shifting of the winds. Sometimes the wind is coming from here, sometimes the wind is coming from there, right? And it brings the warmth and it brings the cool air where it's really really hot. Sometimes it brings cool air, you enjoy it. Sometimes it's very cold. And you have to shut up that comes a nice, hot, warm air that just melts all the snow and isolate. I'm good enough, right.
And the clouds drifting between the head and between the heavens and the earth, as in between the skies. Yeah, like we wish for the days that we can go back into an airplane and fly the world again, right? Where you see the clouds and you're above the clouds. And you're looking at them and you're just saying Allahu Allahu Akbar. So amazing, so beautiful to fly in the clouds, right? It's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then also how to add it says in all of this, are sharing the signs for people who understand?
it the company? Yeah. You know, those who understand my brothers and sisters do we understand and appreciate the loss of how
do we understand and appreciate the signs of a loss of Henry Taylor's greatness around us, you know, just to be able to see colors in front of us, right? Just the color
that you see in front of you right now in front of your face like all these beautiful colors and 100 it was a blessing from Allah. Look at this. This is a handmade hat from Nigeria. Look at the colors in this Hello photo here for Instagram as well so they can see. Look at the colors in that 10 made by someone
you know who put some time and effort into making this thing costs like $100 but haven't good enough. It's amazing, the last few year lifetime and it is a sign of a loss of hundreds and has greatness. Look at all the design and the color. You see it you think to yourself who gave human beings the ability to think of this, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala had, we move on verse number 183 to 185 is discussing Ramadan and we mentioned that so we're not going to go over it. We've discussed it on the bond a number of times, you know those who are fasting, if you're traveling if you if you're going to be traveling or you're sick, you do not need to fast during that time. But you do
need to make up those fasts and so on and so forth. So we've covered those topics in our essential fit classes that led up to this month of Ramadan.
Verse number 177 to build my brothers and sisters is really really powerful. Right at the top of the page, a loss of handlers and it says lady said
to unload ohakune machinery
journeyman Anna froofy then we
will miss Tina weapon as the was
our female safer
was slow BDNF he will get
he can let me know
My brothers and sisters, this is is your IRA for the day. Okay, this is your IRA for today. Verse number 177 of pseudo can
take it with you read it to your family, read the translation, understand it, live with it, go to sleep with it, wake up with it. Why? Look at what aubusson pedowitz Allah says he says
lace and righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west.
Right? You don't just become righteous by standing in prayer. You don't just become righteous by you know, showing as though you're pious and you're doing something good.
Allah Subhana Allah says, rather righteous, when that came that led me to believe the righteous are those who believe in Allah, when you believe in Allah, guaranteed you are going to worship Allah.
And when you're turning your faces to the east and the west, that could also mean like, you know, you're going to do business, you're traveling, you're going places you're doing things. But my brothers and sisters, remember when it comes to worshiping Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, when you trust and belief in a loss of handlers and every other thing, everything else becomes invalid, so long as you're doing for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah says, well, that can be rather, the righteous are those who believe in Allah. They believe in the last day, they believe in the angels, they believe in the books, they believe in the prophets, right? And those who give charity
out of their cherished wealth to orphans, right, they give charity out of their cherished wealth to orphans. Now, I know when we earn our wealth is very hard for us to partner with this right? I remember a time sometimes I you know, when you're students and you're like, man, only if you earn $1,000 a month.
As a student, I earn $1,000 a month I'd be rich, right? $1,000 goes a long way with your students right as pocket money thing, you know, money that you can use, how to love.
You get older, you realize you make more, you start spending more, right? The more you earn, the more you spend, now you have a family now you have more expenses and so somehow I use
spend a lot more. So lots of panels and showing us, he knows that it's hard for us to partner with this, with the with with money with wealth. But when we do leave it off for the sake of a loss of hundreds and when we give it as Allah mentions here, you know, they give their charity out of their cherished wealth to relatives, to orphans, to the poor, the needy, the travelers, the beggars, and for freeing captives, right, those who are, you know, stuck, right freedom, there's different ways that we can look at this, who established prayer, they pay ohms and taxes, right? So those from amongst us, who are going to give in part with our wealth for the sake of our relatives, orphans,
for the poor, and the needy, the travelers, the beggars, those who you know, are, are stuck, they're stuck, they need help. If we're going to start with that, then those are the qualities of the righteous people. But then also kind of without a continuous is not just about wealth. Remember, the first thing I mentioned was those who believe in Allah, the last day, the angels, the books, the messengers or the prophets, right. And then he mentions charity to all those different categories, then a lesson plan which addresses and the righteous are those who establish prayer established.
And they pay there's a calf, right, they pay there's a cow is a cow
is a cow. Remember, during the month of Ramadan, a lot of people pay out they calculate who's accounted paid out. So if you qualify to phase out, this is your time to pay, right? They establish their prayer, their pay their zeca. And they keep the pledges that they make, if you promised someone something that you would do something or go somewhere or say something, then follow through with that my brothers and sisters, right, so they keep the pledges that they make. And for patient in times of suffering.
Those who are patient in tons of suffering.
I think we all go through hardship, especially now. Be patient with it. So have a look at it.
There were times when we would work so hard, we'd wish to be home. Now people are at home, they wish to be at work.
Some kind of luck, right? And then those who are working from home, they're saying they're working even more at home than they than they used to at work. Right? Some people are seeing working even more at home than they are at work. Yesterday, one of my friends called me and said Pamela, he says, You know what, it's really hard to get used to this. I'm like, used to what he says used to being forced to send some kind of law, you weren't already got some work for you to do, right. So some kind of law like, you know, it's hard to get used to being bored. Which means we are truly not taking the meaning of pseudo philosophy to its fullest. Right? Well, also in the inside of the
hosel, where the state of loss, why because we're wasting our time. And so here, it wasn't handlers and it says, Those who pay there's a cap, they keep their pledges that they make, and who are patient in times of suffering, right patient in times of suffering,
in times of adversity, and in the heat of the battle, during the time of the Sahaba of the Alomar and who the companions with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he, that was not easy. You know, nowadays, you traveled to the other side of the world, you have your phone, you can make a phone call, you know, you know, you're staying in your hotel, you're chilling, and so on, you can still you know, be on a video call with your family, or time of the Prophet so long. I mean, some of them would travel on expeditions not knowing if they were coming home. And then they were in the middle of battles. And they could never ever, ever reach their their families unless a messenger was
sent back. Right? And then Allah subhana wa tada says, It is they who are true in faith, and they who are mindful of a lot. They are true in faith, and they are mindful of a lesson of what's had. So my brothers and sisters, if this is the idea that you take with you like it here, the Friday is suffering Friday, from the ladder is almost
dangerous if you're getting scared and mean something's wrong.
So, you know, this idea in itself, righteousness, you know, we hear this term and hid really well the danger being righteous to our parents. What does it mean? Now last time, we had them showing us this example of righteousness in various different forms. Don't think you're just going to be considered righteous because all of a sudden, oh, this person's always praying or this person is always doing this. Oh, no. You need to believe in it. You need to do it for the sake of a loss of hands.
Let's move on in sha Allah, we have another
say about another seven minutes
versus number 189 to 203 they're themed around Hajj and the sacred months. We're not going to go through those right now in sha Allah, verse number 204 to 207. Beware of being a hypocrite and being upset when told to fear a lot, right? Beware of getting a hypocrite and being upset when told to fear and most importantly, what to add. Let's read through those verses 204 Ls Dinah says amin en se many orgy will get phone rufina hayati Lumia Yoshida LA,
Where are you going to tell one last thing or when you see that we have
come a long
whenever you send it to me,
Amina nassima, he
be very the awesome handle his ad is showing us here and remember a lot during the appointed days, right? Sorry, wrong verse. There are some hypocrites, who impress you with their views regarding worldly affairs and openly called to a block to witness what is in their hearts. So the hypocrites are going to be the ones who will be like loud and clear in your face like, hey, look at me, look at me, I'm praying now. Hey, look at me, I'm giving somebody a Hey, look at me, I'm doing this right to witness what's in their hearts, yet they're the worst adversaries.
They're the worst adversaries, none of us have kind of always had it says.
And when you when they leave you, they strive throughout the land to spread mischief in it and destroy crops and cattle, a lot does not life, mister. And we've seen groups of people who claim to be Muslim, who have done things like this right in different parts of the world, different countries. And sadly, they give Islam a bad name around the world, or they've tried to, or it may have been tried to, however you want to word it, right? People thought that that was what Islam the same to do. And those are, that's what Muslims are supposed to do. Whether they're Muslim or not, Allah subhana wa Jalla knows we don't get into that. But those are not the actions of the Muslims,
right. And so we need to be very careful. My brothers and sisters, how we see that is of a lesser penalty, Daddy, he clearly lays it out for us, in front of us. In the end, everything is there just there's no need for us to look any further. Right? alyssum hundreds animates everything clear for us. However,
we don't understand it. Sometimes, when we sit with it, and we ponder over it. We take a few verses at a time. And we've tried to acknowledge what I wasn't happy with and is saying to us that hadn't been lovely to loads of sets, right? And then we see in the next few is verse number 221 1632, a loss of Henry's and it goes into discussing divorce, of course, there's a sawed off about it, right? So what I found out, but also, you know, here, verse number 221, to 232, almost dependent data, you know, mentions divorce, death, the waiting period for the woman, right, or three months, right, or three menstrual cycles, we should say. And then taking back during the death, right. And the
importance of trying to do is the importance of trying to, you know, bring the family together, my brothers and sisters, a lot of the time people get caught up in,
you know, discussing things,
you know, arguing amongst each other and pointing out little things like nitty gritty little things here and there. But what's really important for us, my brothers and sisters, is to try to bring families back together. You know, a lot of the time is too easy. And sadly, and I'm going to say this very, very bluntly and openly. A lot of the time, it's family and relatives of those who are going through hardships that will immediately encourage them to go to divorce, because they're like us, I finished it off and move on. It's not the way it's supposed to be. The also the origin in Islam is that we tried to bring unity in everything. And family is important in that as well. So we
try to bring unity within the family. Right? And so my brothers and sisters, when it comes to divorce, and you know, a husband divorcing his wife, you know, especially in times like this, if you can take her back and look after her and take care of her and do righteousness to her and work out your issues and put your you know, your grievances aside and 100 enough, that will be great. Right? That'll also kind of as Adam mentioned a few other things. You know the method of divorce and how it works, the different cycles the two times the mahabis Well, the mode is absolutely important. How many times do you know brothers get married and never
Their wife, their mother, and then some kind of love their marriage ends in divorce, and she still never gets her mom. And years later, she's still fighting to try and get her money from him, you know, something that was owed to
something that was owed, you know, to her, you know, it's important for us to try to fulfill these responsibilities first, before anything else came my brothers and sisters.
I was kind of we had a talks about the well he
and he should not prevent
should not prevent, you know, his daughter, or you know, the woman from returning to her husband, if she wants to, again, like we said, you know, family sometimes interferes too much. And then the widow and her idea is four months and 10 days lost out, I mentioned that as well. And the wisdom behind it is also pointed out, right. And so, you know, that's absolutely important. Then verse number 238. And lesson 10, which ad is discussing, protecting gossip prayer, forgive me for constantly looking down, you know, to the side, just using, like a little makeshift setup over here, because it's not in my office, but you know, protecting the awesome prayer. And this is the most
vulnerable to miss. And so Pamela right now, you know, you could probably think of that those who took the afternoon nap, right? They took an afternoon nap right now. They may have missed their us of prayer. Right? If you have a family member who's sleeping right now and it's still not time for for it's Bob going wake them up right away. wake them up, say Hey, wake up, wake up, wake up, you're going to miss your awesome prayer. The awesome prayer is more important than the tarawih prayer. And people put so much emphasis on tarawih What about the five compulsory prayers, so prayer, awesome prayer on time and don't miss it. That is some of the advice from a lesson kind of always added.
Tomorrow inshallah. We'll begin from where we're leaving off right now.
You know, cover is of course, the inshallah
shalom Tad does that from a local Craven will suffice with that it's a 10. Of course, remember why and we'll make a very quick drought. Last Sunday. I know Mohammed, Mohammed Ibrahim
Majeed, about a guy named Mohammed and why that
guy that he's on, he no
longer feeling unwelcome that was looking at what happened to a lot of them after about a minute or melanocytic out of it. I mean, that's the loss of handling data to accept from us during these difficult times. That's the loss of language and to accept that we're fasting to make this day one of the most blessed and beneficial fruitful Days of Our Lives. That's the lesson Han was added to grant us the best of this month of Ramadan and all that it has to offer. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us sincere and easy with our families. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us ease through this, to navigate through this time of difficulty. I mean, out of that either need
to forgive all those who have passed away from our families and relatives. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us the best of this life in the hereafter. Allah subhana wa tada you know, bless you through your food that you're about to eat. And remember to say your drought, and at the very least, remember to say Bismillah before you start eating dessert from a level of hate on roboticle both ecommerce and mRNA come up with a lot
