I have been alameen wa Salatu was Salam Ala Moana v Hill Karim Allah He estado Sala to attend with Islam probably shortly so the way a silly Emily that Emily Sani of Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters said Mr Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
I hope you're all doing well and shuttled off to Anna the tiredness of Ramadan is setting in right to the tiredness of all the extra a bad Al Hamdulillah and that extra value will pay off right it's like it's like going to the gym for 10 years straight and working out. And then in the end, you know, you see all that beautifulness all over you and hamdulillah and then you know you just cherish the fact that you worked really hard for it. Well in Jannah and chalong we see all that beautifulness that also kind of attached it gives to us because of all the sacrifices that we've made throughout this month of Ramadan. We will enjoy it in short a lot of data. So tonight is the
25th night so as a reminder once again we are going to be live streaming from within the Simon community center of Milton later on tonight in sha Allah data but for now we're going to be covering the 25th Jews of the Quran.
So tomorrow is the 25th day then we have 26 and 2728 2930 and so next Sunday in shuttle I'm gonna read right so just a few more days today's Sunday another few more days and that's that's it a lot so the countdown begins to the end of Ramadan there will be no other Sunday is our last Sunday of the month of Ramadan. Tomorrow will be the last Monday and then Tuesday will be the last Tuesday. Wednesday will be the last Wednesday this Friday will be the last Friday and then inshallah data will be you know after that so we need to push hard we need to push really hard and don't let go now
a good portion a good portion of the day I'll tell you I'll be very frank a good portion of today was spent you know people asking me questions or was spent receiving messages from people asking about Ramadan no sorry asking about eat right asking about the date or eat and how we're gonna pray eat and you know, drive thru eat and all this different stuff. And I my answer to that is it is only the 25th day of Ramadan, wait, just calm down, we're gonna, you know, we will announce these things. We'll explain these things as time goes on. So don't worry about it right now in sha Allah. Let's wait until you know we get closer to the day varied in order to announce what we're actually going
to be doing for AIDS. If there is going to be an aid if there isn't going to be an aid prayer then it is still the day aid and how we're going to do it and so on and so forth. Okay, so just wait to inshallah Be patient Be patient. So right so Ramadan teaches us patience.
All right, so we're going to begin with surah a shoe at all. And what happened here? Why am I not on the right page? Sula, Shula
So we finished off suta facility yesterday, there was just a few more ads we're not going to go through it was beginning with a shorter and it's titled the consultation, right the consultation and Alyssa pan with Allah in this sort. Of course titling it the consultation the importance of seeking Shula the importance of consulting with others, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that when we go and consult with someone else, when we seek someone else's advice, that person should be someone that we trust, and the person who is being consulted from right someone comes in consults with you, someone comes and asks you for advice, then know that that person is trusting you
with whatever advice that you're going to give them some people will make decisions about their lives with regards to it. So consultation is important in the deen it is something that Allah subhana wa tada encourages us to do. And we see it in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We also see that it's important because at times it can it can level things out where some people will take advantage of others or some people will, you know, do things in their own favor, they will lead without consultation of the community. And you know, yesterday we had that is called with minister Ahmed Hussain and MP out of Vancouver it in and counselor Zhi Shan and sumilon. One thing that that minister was saying he was saying was that, you know, the prime minister of the country, Justin Trudeau, what he tells them all the time is, you know, we can't effectively run this country, we can't effectively lead, you know, and the leaders unless we listen to the people, you have to
listen to the people and so a lot of kind of data showing us that already. We know that as Muslims, right. We need to consult with one another and it's absolutely important to
To receive the consultation of the people around you who have knowledge in the topic. So there's two things that I want to start with before actually getting into verse number one. First, we're going to start with 16.
two things. First of all, the person who is being consulted, right has to know that the person I'm giving advice to is, is coming to me. And they will trust me to give them good knowledge. The people that are going to others should not go to people who they don't trust with the knowledge. And we should not put people in positions that we don't trust, and then and then go and you know, ask someone else behind their back. How does that make any sense? Right? It doesn't make any sense. It's like saying, you know, as an example, here in Canada, Justin Trudeau is the prime minister, but we're gonna go and ask someone else to do it that other person wants, why would we do that? Like,
we're supposed to consult with the people that are leading the country because they are the ones who we can hold accountable for any mistakes afterwards in the future, right. So it's a heavy position, no doubt leading you have to lead by example. But you need to lead with wisdom and hikma and a loss of hanway data shows us the importance of doing that right. And then here in verse number 16, Allah says, well, Idina, you're doing this aphylla.
As for those who dispute about Allah, after he is already acknowledged by many as in those who just think of it as Muslims that are arguing amongst themselves about certain things, right, Muslims that are arguing, and Allah Subhana Allah says their argument is futile in the sight of a law upon them his wrath, and they will suffer a severe punishment Why?
They both believe in a loss of cannabinoids, Adam, but they're disputing over what a loss of data has legislated. Why thank you both believe in a law, move on, move on together, understand the deen of Allah and accept it and move on. And then Allah says in verse number 17, it is a long who has revealed the Book with the truth and the balance of justice. You never know perhaps the hour is near those who disbelieve in it ask to hasten the hour, right? The day of judgment in a mocking sort of form. But the believers are fearful of it, knowing that it is the truth, surely those who dispute about the hour have gone far astray. So unless some kind of exam is showing us your don't dispute,
and this is important, especially if you're running an organization, you're running a Masjid, you are a board member, you're short on member, you're a committee member, your management committee, or, you know, you whatever you want to call it, and not on any boards, and I don't like being on any boards. Because I find a lot of the time and growing up. This is what I always saw. As a child, there was always disputes and arguments amongst board members, committee members, should our members and then there's more, you know, committees that are formed in order. It's just a big mess, my brothers and sisters, why do we do this? Why do we do this? Why do we need to do this, right,
consult with one another. And if you have someone who's appointed in a position to make those decisions, from an Islamic perspective, consult with that person, trust their decision and know that that person or those who have been put in a position to make those decisions are the ones who will have to give a counter before I want some kind of what to add. And so when, for example, if a mustard organization, you know, doesn't listen to their Imam doesn't take the advice of their inbound for Islamic matters, then those people first of all, they're gonna lose their very fast, right? I'll tell you that, unless the Imam really you know, is doesn't know what he's doing. You
know, or for some reason he's stuck or locked in there, maybe it's a contract. But generally speaking, he'll, you know, he'll probably leave very fast.
And the other thing is, if that committee is not going to listen to them, they know that you have the responsibility to lead your community and you will also have the responsibility to give a count before a while some kind of way to add it. Because if you're not going to listen to the people have knowledge and a lot tells us in the first victory in kuntum letter alone. So if you're not going to listen to the people of knowledge, and you're not going to take the knowledge that Allah has blessed them with, for example, as a mechanic, right, someone who knows automotive technology, who knows cars and knows how they work, I would never go to and I gave this example before I would never go to
a medical doctor to ask him how to fix my car. You know, he might be able to do a bypass surgery. And I was thinking of this one. My father in January had his you know, quintuple bypass surgery, five bypasses. And we never thought that that would ever be something my dad would go through but the surgeon Alhamdulillah managed to do this surgery. And it took longer than expected but hamdulillah everything you know in the end was hamdulillah right? There still are some complications, lots of complications, but it is what it is. And but the surgeon is able to do something so intricate, so amazing. And I watched a video the night before my father had the
surgery. I went on YouTube
And then watched to actually two full bypass surgery operations
that were done by, you know, doctors and you know, they recorded for medical students and I watched it and it was like some kind of like, amazing because when you think of it from a, from a mechanical perspective, just getting the air out of the line is like getting air out of your brake line in your car. So there's similarities. But how do you get the air out of that line, if you have air in the brake line of your car, and your brakes don't work, you'll crash into a wall or you're crashing to whatever's in front of you. If you have air inside of your
arteries, or your veins, right, and your heart begins to pump, you'll probably die. Alone knows best. But is this amazing how they used gravity to get that out. And so the two professions are amazing, both amazing, absolutely amazing in terms of technology and, and design and craft and everything, but both are different, I would never take my car to a surgeon to change, you know, parts of my car, I would never do that. And vice versa, they would never do that either. Right? So a lot of what data shows us here is
the people who have knowledge in their fields, you go to them, you consult with them. And I really like to hit this point home because I remember when when reading through books have to see it many years ago.
The thought of the arguments
that I witnessed when I was a child in the massage that we grew up in,
and those arguments probably still carry on.
But Allah subhana wa Tada,
you know, teaches us how not to argue don't argue about things. The dean of a law is set. It's there. There's no need to argue there's no need to dispute and those of us who are going to dispute and remember there's a severe punishment from awesome Hannibal, what's ahead, let's move on. Enough of my rant with massage, you know and
whatnot. Can't believe I just did that was important. It's advice, advice. In the end, people say Oh, are you talking about this? Don't tell them no, it's advice on the poor and we shouldn't be ashamed. We shouldn't be shy to talk about this stuff. Verse number 30. The cause of any disaster, right or hardship that we faced is most likely because of our sins, Allah subhana wa tada says, Well, masaba come in, we'll see. But in Furby Marchesa, but ad come, Wherefore and Kathy, Allah Subhana, Allah says, Whatever affliction befalls you is because of what your own hens have committed. So whatever hardship whatever difficulty, whatever test comes to you, whatever hardships
human beings are being faced with whatever shovel or negativity, or evil is being spread is because of our own deeds, our own hands, what we have committed, and also paddleboats add up pardons much.
So my brothers and sisters,
when we see that there's disagreement, and I link this, in fact, when I was preparing for my notes, I said, I'm going to link this with what we just said from verse number 16, that organizations and board members massage it and so on, where you know, there's always a dispute. Remember this,
that if there's constant dispute, and there's never calmness, there's never peace, there's never a serenity, there's no Sakina in the community, it's probably because of, well, it isn't probably a loss of habitat, it says it is because of our own actions, our own hands what we've done. But if an organization or massage or board members see that there are problems within, then they should clean up what's going on with him.
And Allah subhanho data will change the situation moving forward. But until we don't clean up the mess internally, until we don't clean up a mess in our own selves, right. I was talking about this from a individual perspective, but also generally, right, it applies to the masses, because us, whatever we go through in life is because a lot of the time because of the decisions we've made, the things that we've done, the places do, we've gone to how we spent our money, how we saved our money, how we invested, how we didn't invest in so on and so forth. Did We Learn the team? Did we strengthen our email? Did we, you know, fix our family ties? Did we take care of our children
properly? Did we recite enough to earn did we show our our family that we're doing it better openly? Are we doing it in you know, hiding in our room, making wooden hiding in the bathroom, the family doesn't know what's going on, or children have no idea how to even worship a boss or kind of what's ahead. All of these questions we need to ask ourselves. If something comes down the road, my child is not
Praying well did I show my child that I was praying did I show my child that I was that I paid attention to saw that that it was important for me. And not only that it was important from a ritualistic aspect, but it was important because the Sunnah has a direct impact upon my life. And we need to make that link, we need to draw that line and connect the dots for our children and show them how this Deen plays a role in our lives. So years down the line when something happens and we start to complain, understand my brothers and sisters, we are to blame. And not only are we are to blame, but Allah will bring goodness if we just a loss of bandwidth and we seek forgiveness. And we
change ourselves and we leave off what we were doing. Allah subhana wa tanto bring goodness to our lives, and we will see the change from bad to good in the future of our own lives and the lives of the people around us. We have him with Allah to grant us strength. I mean,
all right, Instagram is back. Anytime it goes out, I stopped in a pause and it comes back under layer back does that come along? Okay. So Allah Subhana Allah is joining us here, you know, from an individual
to look after themselves, but also and I tie this into organizations, if you find that there's a flaw within your organization, you find that your company that you work for is not, you know, there's a lot of evil things that are going on internally, and it's bad and it's not fun to work at that place and so on, then you shouldn't be there, right, find something else. Because until the people internally change, and until things get stirred up internally, no change is ever gonna happen. Right? In the law Hello, how you will not be calm in a day or a year or maybe unforeseen Allah Subhana Allah says that he does not change the situation of a nation of comb a pupil had day
or a year old man the unforeseen him until they change what is within themselves. And so we're not going to change within
the organization to with it, my brothers and sisters, give it all we've got to try to change as best as we can for the sake of Allah Subhana. Medina to please Him. And that change will come. Let's move to verse number 40 to 43, of soft tissue or
in verse number 40 to 43, we see how it is better to forgive someone than to seek revenge. And as Muslims, we know that we are allowed to if someone for example, I gave this example earlier today, if someone hits us, I think you're chilling with your friends, when your friends like Hey, man, what's going on? I haven't seen you and one like out that actually hurt.
And if you want to take justice, you can go and hit them back, of course, with the permission of the person or with the permission of a judge or the permission of the law authorities upon us, right? can't just go and do something on our own islamically we're not allowed to do that. Okay, so if the person says that's fine, hit me back. Right? I hurt you hit me back. So I feel the pain as well. And that's a different story. Right?
you know, people arguing and going,
If some someone else nutshell very
simply, this is when a swag. Well, I can take them as swag and hit them back.
But not with more force than what they hit me with. And not with less force than with Dave anyway. You could do less if you want the lessons fun. But generally, it's supposed to be an equal amount of force, if that's what you want, right? However, you can go less force you can change it. Remember in the example of the Prophet sent along there, and he was standing up, and he, you know, poked the Sahabi in his belly, before the sauna and so the, you know, he told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I want I want my revenge. You know, you did this to me and I you know, I have a right and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lifted up his shirt, and this is how we went bent down and
he kissed the belly of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, he went light on the province and allied his own. He didn't go as hard or as severe as harsh on the prophets, Allah, Allah you ascend them. So you know, that's something that we saw. That's That's really interesting.
All right. Give me one second. Live in my door.
I know why do live streaming stopped my wife is live streaming as well she's doing another event downstairs.
So she's live streaming for someone else and then someone's at the door so the kids are gonna have to get that I just noticed that through the window.
working from home has its pros and cons. So I opened the window to get some Wi Fi ventilation to come through there and I opened the door to get some Wi Fi ventilation through there so hopefully it doesn't cut off Charla Alright, so Allah says that the reward of an evil deed is its equivalent, but whoever pardons and seeks reconciliation than their reward is with Allah. He certainly does not like the wrongdoers there is no blame on those who enforce justice after being wronged okay.
I know the live streaming is not working properly I just restarted it so don't worry does that come along? for letting me know it should be fine now inshallah. Okay, then Allah subhana wa tada says blame is only on those who are wrong people in transgressing the land unjustly. And it is they who will suffer a painful torment. So those who are oppressors, those who are oppressing people that are spreading evil across the land, they will receive this punishment from a lesson Pendleton, it's not us. It's not us. We don't want punishment for others. We don't want people to go through hardship. We don't like that they're doing hardship or giving hardship to others. And we don't want it for
them either. But a loss of habitat is the one who takes justice in his own control. And whoever endures patiently and forgives, Surely this is a result to aspire to. So whoever is patient with what Allah subhana wa tada has legislated upon them as in you're going through hardship, and that is from the plan of Allah. Remember, that is from the planet as a pen with ADD, that some people will face hardships, some people will go through difficulty.
However, if we're patient with it, Allah Subhana which Allah will reward us abundantly, also for patients with the hardships that people give to us or things that people do to us. Right Allah subhana wa Adana mentions that the reward of an evil deed is that as its equivalent, but whoever pardon me that it says from a NASA what
I saw here is not just forgiving, you're not forgiving the person you are pardoning them as in you are you are agreeing to not only forgive but to also forget
to forgive but also forget what they've done.
And this is why we say in these last 10 days of Ramadan, a lot of them are in their care our full one to hibou last word for
right so we ask a lot of pardon our sins to completely remove them to erase them from our book of deeds. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to pardon us throughout this month of Ramadan
so those who transgress they will receive the punishment from a loss of Hannibal Montana, it is they who are doing what is unjust and what is not pleased with that and as we want, we have a few sources to cover.
So we go to sort of two so
we have sort of deserve sort of to do fun and sort of to death Yeah. To cover as well. Okay, so Surah zakharov Let's go to verse number nine. And all you notice all of these surah start with Hansie Hansie Hansie Okay, someone's asked me a question here. Can we keep eating until then? Or do we have to stop eating five minutes before the end while doing so? You can eat right up until the end Okay.
Well then insert a man Hello customer where it will lay a colon Hello cohoon Allah xizhou lurleen obasa pan with Allah says all profit, right? He doesn't say all profit here. But you know he's calling out to the profits of a lager I need to sell them. If you ask them. Or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you ask them, who created the heavens and earth? They will certainly say the almighty the knowing is the one who did it. The Almighty, the Almighty the knowing did it. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created the heavens and the earth and all that it contains. And so the mushy Coronavirus apparently, is showing us that the non believers know they know that Allah is
the one that created the heavens and the earth and they believe in as well as Lord. So then we should call on those idol worshipers at the time of the madness on them in Mecca. And generally we can say almost every single human being believes that there is a supreme being right a Lord but they worship other than a loss of habitat and with that, so whether it's through, you know, things like the Trinity or like using statues or seeking intercession from others and so on. That is shokan. That's not you know, the pure form of everybody that we're supposed to be worship.
In the loss of Hannah Montana with and so we see that a wasp
town as I say this is naming beings, we generally acknowledged that Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Lord, regardless of faith, regardless of belief, you'll notice that when people go through hardships, they they say call out to God, they will ask religious people pray for us. Right? And I've given this example multiple times, I love flying, and I can't wait to fly again. ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy.
losing all my status with airlines, but anyways, you know,
it's, it's, you get into an airplane, and it's a time when you're leaving the earth, you're going up in the sky, and you're so far away from the ground that if anything was to happen up there left on that a lot, it wouldn't be nice, right? And so you're traveling in the air and there's turbulence. Immediately, you see people starting to pray immediately you see people asking, you know, those that are religious, oh my god, you know, pray for us. Pray for us, right? Immediately hear people yelling, oh my god, right? They're gonna. And they're like atheists, when you talk to them five minutes earlier, he's sitting there talking to them. They're like, I don't believe in any religion.
And then as soon as the plane starts to shake, oh, my God, what's going on? What do you mean? Oh, my God, there is no God for you, apparently. Right? You don't believe in a god? No, no, no, I don't mean it that way. Forget this, man. We're going through turbulence. We're not having this conversation right now. So have a lot of happens, right? And people, you know, it's because it's because we have a lot of luxuries in life. And you'll see this as well.
And lots of headwinds. Allah pointed out in the next few examples that we're going to take the luxuries of life, and how you know, we given to them, and we would turn away from a loss of handling data if he gave us all the luxuries of this world. But Alhamdulillah he didn't give that to us. If we go to verse number 88 and 89 Actually, no, no, go to verse number 33 and 35 of soda zakharov Okay, verse number 3334 35. Sort of doesn't look awesome. Hannah Montana says the bottom of the page.
Verse number 33. We're not that people might be tempted to become one community of disbelievers. We would have supplied
believe in muscle, they would have supplied their homes with silver roofs, a roof made out of silver
is as well as I
hate to say because of the way that the Arabic is worded. All of these are made out of silver. So the roof is made out of silver, the stairs are made out of silver the gates are made.
That one is going to be made
out of some gold. Yet all this is no more than a fleeting enjoyment in this worldly life. But the hereafter with your Lord is only for those mindful of him. So Allah subhana wa tada is saying here that for those who was
sorry, he's saying that if if he was to give
shala be patient with it, be patient with it, if you want, you can go onto my Instagram, go onto Instagram doubt but and you'll you'll be able to watch it there and Shawn, I know some of you are complaining that the streaming is getting choppy, I'll move my iPad away from it. So you know there's some space to move around. But some kind of law. You know what, maybe
have a pause here. Maybe I'll move away from the pod so that maybe the Wi Fi is better in this area. It's like coming up and going towards you inshallah. Alright, I'll just sit back away from the pot and shuffle. Okay. So lots of candidates ad is showing us that you know, if he made
for all those who just believe if he gave them beautiful homes
with golden rooves and golden walls and gates and you know, thrones to sit on and all of that. And adornments made out of gold that you had clothing and jewelry and stuff made out of gold. Unless of Henry's Allah says if it wasn't for our love of this dunya people would, they would just rush for it. Right? human beings would go and enjoy the fact that Allah is blessing them with all of these things in this dunya and they would reject a lot and forget a lot and take all of the bounties and he's saying if I was to give that to all those who disbelieve, there'd be so many people who just believe because we've given to the dunya we've given to, you know, the the the the luxuries of this
life, and so my brothers and sisters were allowed to interact
During the luxuries of this life, we're allowed to have them we're allowed to, you know, to benefit from them. But it shouldn't get to our hearts. So here's an example, if you're holding on to something, if there's something that you own, that has a lot of value to you, as in sentimental value, it's not really worth much, but it has sentimental value, and you have enough money in your bank account to buy another one, have exactly the same value the same quality. For example, it's I don't know, a pen,
right? Let's just say this and you're holding on to it, and you have enough money to buy the exact same one all over again. But for some reason you're holding on to this one, then that means we are attached to this dunya more than we may be attached to a lot because if someone says, give this away for the sake of Allah and we're not able to give it away for the sake of Allah, then there's a problem in our hearts with our connection to things
being stronger than our connection to Allah azza wa jal if we can't give to Allah subhanho wa Taala from the things that we treasure and enjoy in this world, then it's a sad state for ourselves. So we need to be careful of that my brothers and sisters,
let's move on.
Sooner to will continue verse number 88. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complains to a loss of handle it added that the people don't believe right the machico they don't believe. And this is in verses number 88 and 89. And a loss of Hamlet Allah tells him to be patient with it. Right on what tells him be patient. He says when
verse number 87, if you ask them, oh prophet who created them, they will certainly say a lot. How can they then be diluted from the truth? You see, at the beginning of the suit, almost without inventions, the same example, at the end of the sort of again, it comes up, if you ask them who created them, it will tell you that it's a law.
A lot is aware of the profits cry, a lot knows what you're saying, oh, Muhammad, he can hear you. He understands he knows what's in your hearts, right? Oh my Lord. Indeed, these are people who persist in disbelief. So bear with them a loss of hundreds and it tells him bear with them and respond with peace, they will soon come to know it is not us. It is not us to punish other people. Allah Subhana Allah says bear with them with patience, be patient. You know, be calm, be easy, take it easy, cool down, bear with it, deal with it with patience and know they will soon come to know as an alone will take care of them it's not us to do that. So you continue in your mission will not have some luck a
lot of mentality I mean, almost luck to general insanely embudo and in other words to the hotel nema mchattie, but as luck, right the profits in the long run it was something was sent for, to perfect our manners and characteristics. And he was sent as a mercy to all of the human beings and a loss of habitat and created us so that we can worship Him and so on. And that is the examples that we look at when we are trying to live our lives and come closer to Allah and you know, we sway away from it.
We come back to Allah subhana wa tada and those who choose to go away and intentionally stay away. Almost a pen with Anna says look, you know, they will soon know very soon they'll know the outcome of what it is that they're doing. Let's move to sudo to do Han don't have much time. So to do one, again it begins with having Allah Subhana which Allah says Bismillah him mocking me when kita movie in
Makati getting in
He also mentions lane so cutter here once again. He says how many by the clear book when he who been indeed we sent it down on a blessed night. Tonight could be that night to look at this guy. A lot of
people say oh, tonight is not later to cover let's just chill because you know there's too many clouds in the skies. Don't think that Laila to color can be when Allah wants it to be. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that there are so many angels that descend on the night of Laila to recover that they are more than the amount of pebbles on Earth. Subhan Allah right. So we sent down we sent it down on a blessing night for four we always warn against evils on that night, every matter of wisdom is ordained to you.
