My brothers and my sisters said Mr Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh cattle.
So it is the 26th night of Ramadan tonight in sha Allah Tada. So we're going to be covering the 26th Joseph Dakota. And I also want to do a little shout out to all those that have helped and contributed towards the summit community center of Milton last night and in the previous nights or throughout this entire month of Ramadan. In general, anyone who has, you know, helped out even with a few dollars does not come along with it, then it's really, you know, going to be helpful. We actually were just there in a meeting again, trying to figure out some things. And we have something really, really interesting lined up for you for the day of Eden sha Allah. So keep an eye out for
that. We'll be announcing that sometime tomorrow most likely. Also, remember, tomorrow is the 27th night so we will be live streaming myself check it out. And chef with a thought from the sonic community center of Milton tomorrow in sha Allah for now let's get into it. And we'll make these announcements later on as well.
So, we're looking at the 26th juice of the Quran for tonight, as we mentioned, we're going to be again with sudo to cough can begin to sort out to cough. And
where is it on my page 26 just when he says There we go. Alright. So cough is the curved sand hills, okay. And at the beginning, very beginning of the soil when we go to, you know, verse number 15 and 16, Allah Subhana, Allah is talking to us about our parents. And that's what we're starting with today, talking about parents and the importance of parents and how it's important for us to look after our parents and be obedient to them under the law.
But Allah says about those who look after their parents, and he then says something about those, that didn't sound right. He then says something about those who don't take care of their parents, those who do not respect their parents or show any respect and honor to their parents. So Alhamdulillah is a blessing from Allah Subhana, Medina to have parents and to show respect towards them. But it is dangerous if we don't and let's look at what Allah says in verse number 15, of sort of off, okay, verse number 15,
off which is the 46th surah of the Quran, Allah Subhana, Allah says, was slain in
any day he
He says, We have commanded people to honor their parents, their mothers bore them in hardship, and delivered them in hardship. And so the commend to look after our parents and honor them comes from a lot, we can't deny that we can't disregard it, we can't just throw it aside, that level of honor, that respect needs to be given to our parents, because it's a direct command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't have a choice in it. But he then says something to us to explain to us why we need to be obedient to our parents, the importance of it, right, and just mentions a few things. In fact, Allah subhanho data doesn't say all the different things that our parents have done for us
throughout our lives, he mentions a few things that are really important things that we could never repay. He says their mothers bore them in hardship, and delivered them in hardship. So it was difficult for the mother to to basically
be pregnant didn't carry this child for nine months on end, it's difficult. You want to take a break, sometimes you can't, there's no breaks, there's no stop, there's no pause, there's, there's no time for anything different. You have to just keep going until the child is born. Then once the child is born, Allah Subhana Allah says, Well, I had to call her that it was difficult to begin with, in terms of just delivering the child, the child didn't even come into the world yet. And so right off the bat, Allah says, look, before you even came into this world, your mother was going through hardships for you. For us, every single one of us, our mothers went through those hardships.
And so before our own existence, you ask yourself, How old are you? I'm 39 hamdulillah. How old are you? 27 May Allah Subhana was adequate, Baraka in your life, right? You know, our lives. When we look at the amount of the amount of years that we've lived, we usually never add nine months to that. But really, when we think of it a loss of headwinds added begins telling us to honor our parents because before we even came into this world, they were looking after us, they were taking care of us. They were going to
distance in order to raise us and you remember my brothers and sisters, those of you who have children or are pregnant currently, you remember the very first time you found out that you were pregnant, hopefully, hopefully, it was something nice, right? Hopefully it was something nice, not like, Oh, we weren't intending on having children from the very first month that we got married, right? Some people say that, like, Oh, we didn't expect to have children, right from the, you know, as in get pregnant right from the get go.
generally speaking, when someone finds out that they're pregnant, or the husband finds out that his wife is pregnant, it's like a moment of joy and a moment of happiness and a moment of shock, and a moment of fear, because you're scared, you don't know, oh, my God, I'm going to be a father, oh, my God, I'm going to be a mother, like, Am I going to be able to do this? How will I raise my children? We're living in this society, what you know, all these things go through our head. And we're just like, oh, how are we going to do this hamdulillah it's a moment of joy, though, a moment of happiness. And then those months go on, and you buy their first baby blanket. They're not even
you're not even three months pregnant, yet, you're buying the first baby blankets, you're buying clothing, right? You're shopping online for something that didn't even come into this world yet. And so we know that we plan before the baby even arrives, to look after that baby and to spend time with that child and raise them properly and appropriately. And so many brothers and sisters, we have to remember that our parents did that for us and allows reminding us about that. In the end, he says that our mothers bore us in hardship, it was not easy. You know, not being able to lay down on your back for months on end, not being able to, you know, do certain things because it's too hard or
having all the cravings that you have or going through, you know, sorry, my phone isn't on silent. All right, they're going through, you know, times of difficulty. Not not having it easy, too fast. Right? You want to fast during Ramadan. It's too hard for you too fast. Someone here says Kuala Lumpur Alhamdulillah. I don't know why I mentioned in Kuala Lumpur, but we love Kuala Lumpur. That's where our children were born, right?
Dr. CTS Allah. May Allah Subhana, Allah bless her, maybe one day, she'll be watching this lecture, she always used to tell me, you know, you do very good lecture of you need to do lectures.
And so, you know, she used to, she used to watch some of my lectures when I was on TV in Malaysia. hamdulillah. And it was really nice to see. You know, someone mentioning Malaysia out there.
But yes, children. It's difficult. It's hard. I remember going into the hospital when our first child was, you know, my wife was pregnant with our first child, and we're going in and you're doing ultrasounds or that God is displaying something? Is there a problem? Like, no, no, everything's fine. We're just checking, okay. And then checking the heartbeat, okay. Everything is fine. humbler above above, obey the law. And then, you know, so Pamela, you you go through the other phases, now the child is going to be born, my wife was in labor for three days with our first you know, born child Alhamdulillah. It was difficult. It was hard. I remember CTS, and he had the doctor. She was
walking, you know, doing her rounds and she would come by she goes no baby yet. No baby yet. And so how am I
you know, in so much pain. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, makes it such that the mother goes through that hardship. And then he says, their period of bearing and weaning is 30 months. In time when the child reaches their prime at the age of 40, they prey. And so over time, once that mother goes through that phase, and the father goes through that phase, and the child is weaned off and starts to eat their own food and then start to walk on their own and they start to go to school and they start to work and so on. And they reach the age of 40.
Then they pray to Allah. As in they call out to a lot into our they supplicate my lord inspire me to always be thankful for your favors, which you blessed me and my parents with and to do good deeds that please you. Alright, a loss of penultimate says gonna be Oh zero any an escort or near a meta can lead to an entirely wordy day.
Thanking a love for our parents and what we've had inspire me to be thankful to them and for the favors that have been bestowed upon me from our parents as well as a blessing from Allah Subhana Allah, you blessed me and my parents and to do good deeds that please you. Right, asking a lot. You know, I've reached an age where I understand wisdom, and this is why we see 40 in Islam is usually the age of wisdom, right? Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
You know, when he received Prophethood when you became a prophet, he was 40 years old. Right?
We see that also prophet use of Allah has set up roughly around that age, right when when, you know, Prophet hood came to him. And so, you know, 40 is important. And it's usually the age where
a person transitions into slowly becoming boring. Maybe I'm no, no, no, I'm just joking. It's wisdom. You now have a lot of life experience. You've gone through being a child being a teenager being a young adult having children, possibly at that age. I know some people become grandparents at the age of 40. Right and find us now you've gone through a lot of experience, you've had experience you've worked, you've gone to school, you, you know, taking time off, you've gone on vacation, you possibly have done Hajj as well. So you have a lot of experience that you can share with others. Now you reach the age where you realize, hey, this experience is difficult because my parents went
through this stuff for me. So you're thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. And then he says, and instill righteousness in my offspring, I truly repent to you. Right? Was the holy, feasibly Yeti. I truly repent to you in need to be to Elijah, we're in liminal muslimeen. And so I truly
repent to you asking a loss of hand without it for forgiveness, because now we realize the importance of life and what our parents went through and the difficulties and the hardships that they faced. But we also submit to your will and look at what a loss of hand with Anna says next. He says it is from these people that we will accept the good they did and overlook their misdeeds
along with the residents of Paradise in fulfillment of the true promise they have been given. And so Allah subhana wa Tada, not only does he bless them with paradise, but look, there are times in life that we try to figure out how will we be able to receive forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada, one of the best ways to try and receive forgiveness from Allah subhanho data is to be good to your parents, honor your parents, respect your parents, show them a good example. Make them feel good that they raised you as a good person that they raised you as someone who's going to help others that they raised you as someone who is fearing of a muscle cannibal with data and conscious of a
loss of hand with data and able to carry yourself on your own on your own two feet, and to look after yourself and your family and the future generations. So our parents need to feel that and they need to be made to feel that they they are okay. In what they've done. And their children will be okay once they leave this world. And then Allah subhana wa tada shows us that, you know, you can receive that forgiveness through taking care of your parents and being honest and dutiful and righteous and, and so on to our parents. But also there are some people who will not do that. So Allah says in verse number 17, but some will scold their parents, some people will be very rude,
and, you know, speak very rough and nasty to their parents. And they will say enough with you. Are you warning me that I will be brought forth from the grave. While many generations had already passed before me, the parents cry to allow for help. Right there parents will cry to a love for help and warn their children PDU have faith. Surely, laws promise is true. But those who deny will insist there is nothing in this. But ancient fables. These are just like Tales of the past I come on, man, we're gonna be resurrected, we're gonna stand before a lot. And that's, you know, sadly, a reality that we live through. living here in North America, my brothers and sisters.
It is a reality around the world. But let's just talk about our own context right here in Canada. And I know that, you know, a lot of the youth that I deal with, they leave Islam, a lot of youth come in, they speak to me and they've left Islam, but they're too shy, too scared to tell their parents, which you could say is a good thing, but also a bad thing. Like, okay, they're respectful to their parents, but it hurts their parents to know that they are going to leave them or have left Islam. And so they don't tell their parents because they're too shy to face the reality that they're living. And so they're not being honest. They're not being true with their feelings and emotions and
belief. And this is where my brothers and sisters we need to be very careful. We have to be active
parents, but active community members, we need to make our children love the mustard. And it's not because we have some, you know, ulterior motive. No, we love them so much that we want goodness for them even after we leave this world. We love our children so much that we want goodness for them when they leave this world as well. And so my brothers and sisters it's hard to raise children. It's
Hard to teach them Islam. But you just have to keep at it. And one of the best ways to do it is not to do it the way that your parents did it for you.
I'll say that very straightforwardly. But one of the best ways to teach us down to your children is not to teach it to them in the ways that our parents taught it to us. Why? Because times have changed. I'm not saying that our parents did a bad job, I'm saying the Times have changed. You know, nowadays, it's so much easier to teach our children certain things in the ways that they love and they enjoy. But when we go back to the ways that we learned, that's where it becomes boring, that's where it becomes burdensome. And it becomes really like strenuous and stressful upon them, like, Oh, my God, I gotta do this. And I need to write out this 100 times and a half. And somehow the law,
like if we were to use the technology, like we have technology, I'm talking about this today, you know, I created and people might might disagree, and that's fine. You can I agree to disagree with you. I created a tic Tock account, mainly because I also wanted a live stream on it. But it's just, you know, too many devices too hard to do that. But I created a tic Tock account, because that's where the youth are. And I remember back in the day, I was the I was the last person to say I'm getting a Facebook account. And back in 2000, I think it was 2011. It was my brother who created a Facebook account for me. He's like, you need to be out there teaching people man, like what what you
the things you learn, you learn to study things around the world, put it out there for the rest of the people to learn as well. So he created that account for me signed up and registered the account. And then after that, as the years went on, I was still very picky with social media still very late. And no, you know, we shouldn't be doing this. This is how long and this and that.
And then it came to a point a few years ago when Snapchat was really popular, right? And I was completely against that, like no way this app was created with ill intent to begin with completely against it. And then my wife was like, Look, all the youth are on it. You're the only one who's not on Snapchat, you're not reaching the youth, you need to get on Snapchat and teach the youth because that's where they are. And when I got on to it, I was like, Man, this is amazing. This is where all the young generation is. But then I got bored of it. I was like, you know what this is annoying is too many platforms too many things to look after. And to be honest, Instagram got so much better
right at the game, and so we just slowly ditched Snapchat, then Tick Tock came along Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, don't worry. We don't spend our time on Tick tock, but you post on it. And this is where the younger generation is. I'll tell you, my brothers and sisters in memes, you know, will tell you all of the children they know are on Tick tock, you know, they see it, you're on the member and you're delivering a jamaa Papa and the children are on Tick tock, right, you see it in front of you on their phones. And so if none, if none of the Islamic personnel, right, and none of the scope, there's nothing that humans nothing relate to us can relate to are going to be in the spaces that
the children are, and then they will pick up that's around them, they will not take the hell, they will take the hat off and is around them. And that's where my brothers and sisters we failed. We need to change our outlook, we need to look at what the youth are doing, and not do what the youth are doing. But give them what's important in the areas that they're doing the things that they're doing. I don't know if that makes sense. But for example, I don't go on Tick Tock and surf it and check things out. I don't have time for that. And and I could tell you that when I signed up for the account, I noticed immediately immediately I was like, this is a fitna, this is terrible. This is
dangerous. It's a poison, right? You go on to it, and it'll just suck you in. Right? You'll just keep watching and watching watching things. I'm pretty sure during this time this pendant people have spent maybe over a month, if you check the time that they spent on Tick Tock in total weeks on end of consecutive Tick Tock watching. I don't know how people can do that. But it's done. People do it. But this is where we need to put a roadblock in there. Sometimes people will be watching, watching, watching they see something they like yeah, I miss Allah, I should go pray and they put it down and they go pray or, man, you know what if I just say something nice if I just say something so
simple, I can get good rewards, I can get lots of rewards for it, and they actually do it. And so my brothers and sisters,
it's so simple to reach out to the youth but we need to understand where they're coming from. We need to understand their angle because a time will come when we see what's being said in the ayah that were reciting tonight in verse number 18, a muscle kind of weights and it says sort of
sort of took off. Allah says these are the ones against whom the fate of earlier communities of jinn in humans has been justified for they were truly losers. Those who disregarded their parents were truly losers. Each of the two groups will be ranked accordingly to what they have done. So he may fully reward so alone they fully reward them the group of those who are good to them.
And the group of those who were bad to their parents, and none will be wronged. If they were good to their parents or loved, we'll give them goodness, if they were bad to their parents, Allah will give them what they deserve. And so my brothers and sister we need to
move to versus number. Actually, let's move to the next one. Let's go to pseudo Mohamad.
We're actually only going to take the first few verses of pseudo Muhammad, to be honest, I can't even remember what my Tick Tock thing is you just type my name in doubt, but you should find it right.
once again, remember as sorry, can't help you epicness Nef.
So Allah says at the beginning of sort of Mohammed alladhina Kapha was under ncbd law he
he says those who disbelieve and hinder others from the way of Allah, He will render their deeds void. As for those who believe, do good and have faith in what he has, and what has been revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which is the truth from the Lord, He will absolve them of their sins and improve their condition. This is because the disbelievers follow falsehood, while the believers follow the truth from their Lord. This is how Allah shows people their true state of faith. So Allah highlights those who disbelieve and those who believe and how you know, we need to follow the
we need to follow the sun of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, that's absolutely important. And I always ask this question and I'll ask you this question as well.
Put a love first and put the profits on a longer I think he will send them in and his son in front of in front of you in any decision you're about to make. So he says those who disbelieve in hinder others from the way of Allah He will render their deeds voice, as for those who believe in do good and have faith in what has been revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam which is the truth from their Lord, He will he will absolve them of their sins and improve their condition. Always ask yourself what would Mohammed some Allahu Allah usnm do in this situation? What would Mohammed Salah longer either usnm do had he been given or dealt this situation that we are going through right now?
And we'll take examples of that very soon inshallah. Okay, let's move on. And then we'll take some examples. Let's go to
the very first
few verses of surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says
Someone is asking your noodle before you end today can you address if we can do at home? I'm asking because in Singapore the Mufti has announced to do a prayer at home for your family with your family okay.
Remind me at the end inshallah sister noodle and we will get to that I am putting a video together that I will release after the 27th of Ramadan because I find Muslims should be focusing on Ramadan right now, and leave their eat talk until after you know, closer to eat. And I'd like to push it past the 27th not because there's anything particular with the 27th but just because let's get closer to the end of the month, however, to come the minds and the hearts of the people I think, you know, it's important to discuss it. So
let's, let's let's bring that up right at the end, inshallah. Kay, just remind me at the ancestor neuron.
So here at the beginning of sudo, Allah Subhana, Allah says, indeed, we have granted you a clear triumph, right? victory in nassetta. Now, like I said, time, Medina. So that allow me forgive you for your past and future shortcomings. Perfect his favor upon you, guide you along the straight path. And so that Allah will help you tremendously. Look at this, my brothers and sisters, what is the victory? A lot of people think the victory is a term mcca which it is, but there's something deeper than that. It's not just a term bucha right. Kind of all this, the bright lights is just like getting to my eyes. It's not just a term mcca it's not just the victory of conquering Mecca. It is
also the victory of
and in fact, this is even more important. Of course, the victory of Macau not diluting it at all. But what happened in the conquering the conquest of Mecca when Mecca was conquered by the Muslims. In a humble state, right. What happened was the people believed the people believed and that's important. We need to point that out, that the people believed because the greatest victory is the victory of belief that we as Muslims and hamdulillah we know that Allah tells us that there's a great victory, but guidance to Islam is the greatest, you know, blessing of Allah, and that in itself to, to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala is the great
Victory you and I can ever you know, achieve hamdulillah submitting to a lot of people will say, but I want to become a half of those. Yes, that's good, but Alhamdulillah you're a believer, right and hamdulillah your heart has been guided to Allah. Right and, and, and you've allowed it to go that way as well. Because there are some people who don't allow their hearts to go to a lot even when they want to. And I'll say this even when they want to come closer to Allah, they will not open their hearts, their their knifes is telling them to do it, but their mind and their body and their desires is like No, you cannot go closer to Allah. And this is where we see those people you know,
leading themselves down a path that Allah subhana wa tada is displeased with. And so the greatest victory there is actually the victory of, of attaining Islam. And when the prophets on longer and even some of them entered into Mecca and all those who submitted to Islam and said, You know what, this is the deen we fought in the past, you know, they were divided in the past, but they came closer to Allah and they understood through the advice and through the message of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the importance of submitting to Allah, their Creator, and letting go of these idols and letting go of those statues and letting go of the way of life that they had, they realized
the importance of turning to a loss of kind of water. And that's the victory. That is the victory. So when we, you know, take this Take, take a simple example, Prophet, moo, and he has sent up, his son is swimming in the water. The floods are coming out like crazy, right? It's flooding and you when you think of a tsunami, when it hits, it just destroys everything in its past, and its path
is destroying everything in its path. And
his son, Prophet newer, his son is swimming and he says, Don't worry, he died. So we jumped on it. I'm gonna swim over to that mountain. Well, I'm sorry, they're lousy, man. Yo, there's no safety, there's no protection, there's nothing for you today. Right? Either you get on here, you submit to a line you get on the ship or how long you're done with.
And he rejected Allah subhana wa Tada. So victory really, when you think of it is when someone comes to a loss of Hannah Montana with an open mind and heart. That is like the greatest success that anyone can really want on, you know, on their record in their book of deeds, and also handling statuses that allow me forgive your sins of the past and those of the future right. So the sins of the past those who disobeyed and then turn to a loan submit like those who are not Muslim and accept Islam and embrace Islam, and hamdulillah
the sins of the past are wiped out, right? They don't exist for you, right? Whatever you did in the past, you start with a clean slate, it's a blessing from Allah. This is why I always say, you know, whenever someone embraces Islam, and um, there are the embrace system, you know, with me in front of me, I always tell them, I say at this very moment, you may know nothing more about Islam than the few little things that you've been explained about Islam.
But you are more pure than we are. we've committed sins as believers, you have this clean slate fresh page that's turned for you begin your life as a believer and do good deeds. And of course, we all commit sins, right? That's, that's in our nature. It's something that we give in to desire some bigger, some smaller, some greater some, you know, lighter, but unless of Henry time that shows us that those who embraces them Alhamdulillah it's, it's hope it's reassurance Don't worry, keep moving forward. And those who are Muslim from birth and I should say have been raised in a Muslim family and have been upon Islam their whole lives. Don't think that all you know only new Muslims get this
awesome thing. No, we get it as well. There are so many times throughout the year I must have handed down and forgives our sins, the month of Ramadan forgiveness and not only that Allahumma integrar foo, we spoke about our food, right that it completely erases and removes and it's like gone, it didn't even exist the sins that we've committed in our lives. So ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness and there are multiple times throughout the life of the believer when we can attain forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tana, in addition to always be able to ask for forgiveness, right? Always being able to ask for forgiveness. There are times when that forgiveness is like, Allah is
basically giving more and more of it away.
We'll move on inshallah. Let's go to verse number 21
verse number 21, the loss of Hannah Montana grants and Muslims victory even if they aren't in the favor of the person so even if that victory you think that you know what, why am I going through this? This is hardship. It's not victory for me, but it is
It is, for example, if you have, look, I'm doing this pain in your neck, right and Hamdulillah, that pain is a means of our forgiveness. Right. It's expiation of the sins that we've done in the past. And so we might think that something is not victory for us, we might think, oh, why would a person labetalol we ask a lot to protect every single one of us from all kinds of harm, all kinds of illness, all kinds of difficulty, all kinds of, you know, extreme tests, extreme tests, especially with our health, you know, things like cancer, sometimes people question Why did one give this to me.
And I know it's hard, I don't know, firsthand, 100 Allah. And I could say that I, in a way, I don't want to know. But Allah has blessed those who have fought that battle.
And granted them forgiveness, through their patience and struggle with this.
I was recently with the father of a brother, one of the brothers in the community, father, who is, you know, one of his children,
you know, is going through a very difficult time
in terms of his health, and
when I asked him how he's doing, how's he taking it, you know, how how's the chemotherapy going, and he said, You know what,
he's the strongest one out of all of us, in the whole family, he's the strongest one, he was a reason why I chose to test him, he has the strongest connection with Allah than we do. And his son is like, 11, or 12 years old. And he's like his connection to a lot stronger than ours. And that's why Allah chose him. And that's for a father to say that that's a blessing from Allah. You know, first of all, for a parent to see their child going through that kind of a difficult situation in their life going through, trying to recover, trying to be cured from cancer, or from an illness that no human being ever wishes to have.
For the parents to see that is difficult on its own, but for the parents to cherish and to admire, the way that their child is taking it is His blessings from a lot of the parents. Because the parents are like and hamdulillah. He's taking it well, she's taking it well. And as difficult as it is.
They have a good connection with their Creator. And it's strengthening the connection. And so here Allah subhana wa tada says, and there are other gains, which are beyond your reach, that Allah is keeping in store for you, for Allah is most capable of everything. When we go through hardships, my brothers and sisters, Allah tells us there are certain things beyond reach. There are certain things that are waiting for us. And we don't understand, we will not understand and we will never grasp in this life until we see them in front of us on the Day of Judgment. And after that when we enter into paradise. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to keep us firm and steadfast, this life is temporary.
Like this life is super temporary. We will all leave this world. And I said this just the other day. And you know, it's my new thing. This this pandemic, I've been thinking, the things we have in life will outlive many of us. You know, when you buy something, you buy a phone and then you're like, you know what, this phone is probably not going to last me more than two or three years, and then you need to get another one. But that phone might still outlive you.
Just when you think of that, for me, that just boggles my mind. Like the technology on this watch is outdated. I think it's like pretty slow and old. It's I've had this for what four years now, but nonetheless, not an Apple Watch. So don't ask about it. Right? It's it's pretty old. It's pretty outdated, but it it can very well possibly outlive me Allah knows best and ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant me a long life. ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to grant all of us a long life upon Iman upon Islam, where we are true to Allah subhana wa tada where we are fulfilling you know, the rights of a muscle kindly to add to where we are obedient to Him and we fulfill our salah and zecca and be kind
to others and so on. ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept from every single one of us, but my brothers and sisters The truth is the truth. That's the reality of it that our lives are so temporary, but what's in store for us? If we're patient with what we go through a loss of Hannah Montana can grant us something that we could could not even comprehend. We move on.
Let's go to Sudoku.
six verses of the sword on Shama, okay, some really nice lessons here for us. Okay.
Verse number one.
Okay, verse number one, two and three, the importance of respecting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah and not to make decisions before that. So remember I said we were going to come to this when we were talking about this at the beginning of sort of Muhammad, right? I said I would come right to this. So now, yeah, you have to learn to cut demo beignet de la suli. Allah Subhana, Allah says, all believers, do not proceed in any matter. Don't come to any conclusions don't decide on anything before a decree from Allah and His Messenger, as in don't jump to conclusions, okay. And fear of law, what took the law in the law has semirara Aleem? No, that's a loss of heterodyne and
hears he is a semir. And I think and he knows, so Allah Subhana, Allah is aware of what we're doing, and all the decisions that we need to make. And you know, my brothers and sisters, we're living in a time and sister noodle brought it up, right.
And what about to eat and eat Salah? And I'll say it straight jokingly
over a month ago, maybe almost two months ago, because we're at the end of May, March, April, May. Yeah. So some somewhere at the end of March, maybe, or beginning of April. jokingly I mentioned
to some of the other humans like you know, what, what if we did like a drive thru drama, like the old drive thru cinema style, right? And they were like, No, no, no, come on, man. And we'll start with this nonsense. And like, No, I'm just saying, I'm just putting it out there. Because eventually someone is going to say it. Eventually, someone's going to come up with this and say, Oh, we should do this. And now what do you see the last few days is what we've been dealing with people asking in the community. Well, can't we do this Can't we just have like a drive thru, Juma drive, thru, eat and stuff like that. So we're going to talk about that a prayer later on, right? I don't want to get
into it. But the point that I'm making in in relation to these ayat is that Allah has set our Deen for us. Learn the deen and apply it in the lives in the context that you're living in. But don't come with your own thoughts and your own desires and apply it and remember, I'm going to
have your long run. He said it's the demon that was dependent upon logic, right? If we were to just apply our own personal logic in how we behave as Muslims, then we would wipe underneath our socks when making Lulu and not wipe over the top of our socks. Does that make sense? You know, when you're making Lulu and you're doing mess over your socks? you wipe over the top? There's some that is to wait over the top of your socks and you're done. But around that it knows about he says was it.
Yeah, it leaves behind.
He says you know what, if if we were to use logic in our Deen, we would wipe over the bottom of our socks and not the top. But he says this is why we don't use logic everywhere. We don't just come up with what I feel. No, it's not just that first before using this. We look at what a loss of Hannah Montana and what His Messenger some along there and he was seldom said or did in this case.
What are we supposed to do from an Islamic perspective? Not what do I want to do? Right? Some people will say on the David Reed, I don't want to go out I want to stay home and just chill and sleep because Amazon's over I finally want to just sleep and eat. I don't want to go and pray. Someone might say that right? But is that what we're supposed to do? We begin the diva read with worshiping Allah. Allah.
Very good. Hello, Clayton to my amazing wife. She says it was not even. You're absolutely right. That's why for some reason, I had some shock in that I had some
some doubts in what I was saying.
So it was it, it'll be a lot more on who said you know, if we were to use logic and the dean, then we would wipe underneath the sock and not on top of it.
So yes, using our own thoughts, our own feelings, our own desires, we would sway away from the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why a lot tells us in the beginning of sort of 200 art, you know, think what would Alo want from you? What does the prophets and along with us send them you know, how would he deal with this situation? And I always like to use this concept for myself. How would Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam deal with this situation? If this was if he was faced with it?
Would using a cell phone be permissible? According to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would flying in an airplane be permissible according to the Prophet sallallaahu it was sent him How would we pray in an airplane if the prophets along with someone went through it? And then we look at the other supportive evidences right. So it's important for us to understand that my brothers and sisters, you know how would have lost a pen without a wife.
To do something and how would the profits on the longer I think he was going to do it if he was in that situation. And what helps with that is we then go and we look further Okay, what can I find in the summer? What can I find in you know the traditions of this habit of the law and then based on what they learnt of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
moving on, Allah then says, Yeah, you're letting me know, let her Pharaoh as well to come focus out in Debbie, oh believers, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, right. So when you speak, don't speak super loud. You know, make sure that you're conscious of how you are and how you're conducting yourself, or your deeds will become void when you are unaware, right? So make sure that you're doing what is right. Indeed, those who lower their voices in the presence of Allah's Messenger are the ones whose hearts a law has refined for righteousness, they will have forgiveness and a great reward. Indeed, most of those who call you out or profit from your home, from inside of
your own home, have no understanding of manners, there's no luck. And one of the most important aspects of learning Islam and learning Deen is to learn to learn morals, to learn behavior to learn to learn values, before you go and you learn anything else. You learn how to respect the knowledge you're given. Because if you can't respect the knowledge you're given, you will have a law. I can't even get I don't even want to give you examples because it's so nasty. It's so disgusting. What people do and say about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about Allah subhanho wa Taala and how they speak against the ayat of the Quran. It really hurts, it really hurts and fine, if people want to
say what they want to say, okay? Allah Subhana with Allah tells us in the Quran is a halt of the human journey, he wanted to sell me something nice back to them, but it hurts still. Because when you see what people are doing, they had no respect of the knowledge to begin with. They had no respect of the book of a lot to begin with. They had no respect of the son of Mohammed salah and even send them to begin with, and people will say, but they went for Hajj and they did Ramadan. And they did this and they did that they, you know, recited the Quran. And you know, they attended lectures and how to cut the deal. If they did it. If they have no respect for the knowledge, they're
doing it for some other reason, they may be doing it because someone is there that they want to go and meet or someone is there who they want to impress or they're going because you know what a everyone is going and doing it. We got to go and do it or Yeah, it'd be a nice, fun, fun family trip. Let's go and do it. But when you respect the knowledge of a lesson, and you respect the pseudonym Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, even when even when a person has doubts that pop into their mind, they say Ruvo Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. And they don't feed those doubts with their desires. They don't feed those doubts with their thoughts. And they push shaytaan away
from themselves and they say no, this is not right. This is the book of Allah, we have to respect it. We have to believe in it. We have to act accordingly and so on and so forth. And so respect and honor and mentors, my brothers and sisters is so important not only with the deen of Allah Subhana Allah, but in the deen it shows us how to show respect to each other. One another right how to be respectful to each other.
So then Allah Subhana, Allah says, had they been patient until you come out to them, it would have certainly been better for them. And Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful all believers if an evildoer brings any news to you, okay, we'll take that one next. One point that I wanted to mention here before we move on to verse number six, because verse number six is a bit of a change in context. If we go back to verse number three, two and three, in fact, just the very first few verses that we took a loss of Hanwha dad is showing us here,
those of us who have knowledge of the deen, we should respect their decisions in it. So long as we see that there is a general understanding of it, there is a problem.
There is a problem that we have in our communities. The problem is sometimes you'll find one, maybe two people that will say something
and every other email them or every other knowledgeable person because not not only men are the Knowledgeable ones, right? There are women who are knowledgeable in the deen you have to consult with with knowledgeable women as well. To get an understanding of you know, the deen doesn't just come from the men. There are also women who are learning that scholars within Islam.
There are some times when there may be one person who's saying to do something and everyone else is like no, this goes against the deen because of a B, C, D, E, F, G h i get you all these things of like no, we're doing this.
That is not the way the deen is implemented. Now I can understand certain times when
something new comes in to existence. For example, if I'm praying Sala see my watch if I'm praying Sala
and it is a nothing prayer, and I want to recite more of the earth, and let's say the person who's wearing the watch is not most is not a half of the Quran. And they have the Quran app on it. So when they're standing in sauna, they're able to read from it.
What is the ruling on that? You guys many of the memes would be like, I don't know you can't do that. Why is it permissible to open your mouth and look at it? Is it permissible to hold the phone that has it is it permissible to use a tablet that has it Why is it that the watch is hot on like going on with you playing games with your watch? No, it's not playing games it's the app is there the app is there you can recite the plan on it although maybe there's mistakes on it you should be avoided maybe there's mistakes things like that that's new technology new advancements there's going to be discussion is going to be played that's fine. But things that are established like the read
Sala someone misses the read Sala what do you do? Someone is not able to go for the eight sauna. What do they do? That eight sauna is too far there's no gathering of eat. What does the person do? Right? These are things that we need to discuss and we will discuss in two minutes. Three minutes and chocolate case. It's a noodle we're coming to it hopefully you're still there. He's still there. So to noodle
noodle you still there. You said you're supposed to remind us so new things that come out. Yeah, you'll have one or two events here or there that are like okay, yes, we should, you know, look into this and that, but you'll find that the majority are gonna be like, we don't know yet. We don't know. But when one mm they seem to do something in all the events or all the other learning people are saying no, no, no, Islam says something else. Then be careful of that one person. Be careful of that one person unless that one person has very solid Islamic evidence backing them up and be careful of that. Okay, I'm Lester noodle, you're still there. I just want to go through verse number
six. So how to love we did not even get through suta cough or sore that yet
nailless Academy dad have mercy upon us. I mean, but I do want to take verse number six of pseudo jebat in verse number six, this is important for us. It's why we need to take it. Oh believers, if an evildoer brings you any news, verify it. So you do not harm people unknowingly. Become regretful for what you have done. Right, becoming regretful for what you've done. So verify the information my brothers and sisters, now more than ever, in the history of human beings, we are forwarding messages and statements and videos and posts and articles. And so we've had a lot the amount of things that people are forwarding. It's unbelievable. And everyone's saying, Oh, you know, like,
you know, Dr. So and So says this about Coronavirus, and Dr. So and So says something about that. And that doctor is actually like, you know, someone who I don't know, a doctor in
And someone's looking after feet, right? Or a doctor and this or that. Like, let's be realistic. My brothers and sisters, we don't even know who this doctor is. We're like, well, but look at his credentials. Yeah, but you don't know anything about him. So what are you forwarding it in the first place? Right? Okay, so Prime Minister said this Oh, so and so country, the level of COVID-19 over there is less? So maybe they're doing something right? Well, maybe they're doing something wrong? Maybe they're doing something wrong, that's making it right. You know, like, some people are looking into certain countries, one country in particular, did you know that in those countries, people are
injecting, they're having, you know, microchips injected within them so that they know who's interacting with who and so on? Are you guys okay with having this done to you? Do you want that privacy taken away from you? People are saying, Oh, we should look at those countries Look, just do this. And that? No, but there are other things that those countries are doing that many people are not focusing on, that they're not telling you the truth about, and they want you to be just like them. So basically, what people are saying is, you know, verify what Allah subhana wa tada saying is verify the news. And what's really sad is when people say about this whole pandemic, and and I'm
going on a little bit of a tangent, but I'm going to stop within one minute promise a chatbot data.
People say, you know, I'm not going to be a sheep anymore. I'm not just going to follow the crowd. That's not going to be a sheep. So what you're on the other side of the fence, yes. What's on the other side is the other side of the fence more sheep, their sheep that are going this way, and there's sheep that are going that way. The point is, we need to be moderate. And this is why we don't consider ourselves sheep. But at the same time as human beings. We are followers as believers in the loss of data. We are followers we have to follow. There's nothing wrong with being considered someone who follows why because we're following the suit of Muhammad so long. I knew he was sending
them we're following a loss of kindness.
Adam, yes, we're leaders but we follow in in lead, right, we're following in leads, we're leading by example. And we're still following along the way. And so my brothers and sisters, don't just be someone who says I'm not going to be a sheep anymore, but you end up being a sheep on the other side of the fence. It's the same thing, the same thing. Submit to a loss of Hannah Montana. Look at the sooner if, if being distant socially right now is what is needed. And we see it was the advice within the subnet as well as under the law. If we can't control our desires, we're getting into our desires though. We're basically a sheep on the other side of the fence. And that's my rant, my
minute is up I'm done with it. So verify the news and the information that comes to you. And now we get into it very quickly. So sister noodle because I think we have six minutes until the end.
what we're going to do very basically in this in this session right now is just mentioned that we will pray or read on our own that each prayer is not their each prayer that you typically would pray because we usually pray in congregation from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. We see that if someone missed their each prayer, right, they can pray that prayer on their own. Or we also see that people can pray to it, aka in the morning, go ha right. That can be their intention that this is Doha and you're doing extra tequila, right? You're doing the extra tip of the dots. It's the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the each prayer It is not something that is
compulsory. Of course, according to the Hanafi method, that's a different story. But generally speaking, when we look at it, you know, families will pray their Eat, Pray or home Lake use, like you mentioned was was, you know, the statement of the Mufti in Singapore and I know because I have a friend of mine who works at movies for the Mufti himself. We're starting with the with the MFI, and this is something that has been discussed for some time, what are we going to do for each new scholars not just coming up with it, we just haven't released it yet because it's time to focus on Ramadan. And so focus on Ramadan, and on the David Reed you can pray that prayer home clip up no
need for a football in the sum of the profits on a Sunday, we see that the hookah varied is not compulsory to begin with, right. Secondly, so if a person wants to leave after the the prayers so the football is done after the prayer Juma has the hook those before it and the prayers after read the prayers before his first and then the hopeless after and if people need to leave, they can leave there's nothing wrong there needs Allah is still correct and valid. The the the hookah is not a compulsory component of the age prayer. And so if families get together and they want to create their age prayer at home, they can create right at home. Is there a need for a hookah? No, in the
Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu it was something that someone missed the prayer, they don't need to do a hook but they just pray the prayer itself. There's no hook that needed the hook was something that's done as a large gathering. And again, it's not something that's compulsory. That's all that I'm gonna say here in sha Allah and I am going to be releasing a video in the next couple of days I was waiting until after the 27th to actually release a video so that will be out very soon on posted on my social media platforms as well. Does that come along? Okay, then we'll see all of you tomorrow. barakallahu li comm remember, make do, there's a few minutes left. This is time to dress
accepted. And I'm already gonna have to login with that account to some of our cinema that kind of you know how much
