Amanda Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa sallam one and V Hill Kerim alayhi salatu wa Taala tasleem rubbish Rafi Sabri way a Sidley Emery melissani of Coco Lee, my brothers and my sisters said Mr. La come or not to worry about a cattle.
I hope that everyone is doing well. hamdulillah This is our second day of fasting. And it I think was not too long of a day, it didn't feel like a long day. For me. It was a lot of things that were going on, a lot of things happened, but it didn't feel like it was a long day of fasting and hamdulillah. So I would say that that's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. to not have, you know, difficulty during the day of fasting. And we know very well that for some people, it is difficult. And you know, even though we're staying at home, and we're not moving around too much, it can be very challenging for a lot of people. So we ask Allah Subhana, which Allah to grant us ease,
and to make it easy for every single one of us to get through this month of Ramadan, not only with ease and fasting, but he is in seeking forgiveness and attaining it throughout this blessed month, I mean,
so while we wait for people to log in.
It's a very interesting day, and we'll talk about the day in shot a lot today was
the first time in my life that I had to lead janazah prayer at the cemetery for one of our community members who passed away of COVID-19.
And asked a loss of Hannah Montana to have mercy upon him. His family is well known in our community, his children, or children and grandchildren are, you know, a huge part of our community here in Milton Candela. And it's not not an easy thing to go through. But we'll talk about that later on in sha Allah, as we get through our header. For today, we have the third choice, right, the third just of the end, which is the third part of the plan, right?
For those who are not fully aware, but what I've done is broken up into Solas 114 Sutras, which are known as the chapters and then we also have parts so breaks it up into roughly an even amount of parts 30 parts of the plan. And today we're going to be covering the third part of the course on this part of the quarter and Allah subhanho wa Jalla begins by talking about the prophets, right the prophets and messengers, and how many of the prophets and messengers you know, had specific things that were given to them. So Allah Subhana was added begins by certain by saying tilaka russophone Banga, whom Allah about we have chosen some of those messengers above others, Allah spoke directly
to some and raised some high in rank to Jesus, the son of Mary or Isa Allah has sent him we give proofs and supported him with with as a recipient of what Allah says that will help others, right the Holy Spirit. And if Allah Subhana, Allah had willed,
succeeding generations would have fought among themselves after receiving clear proofs, but they differed, some believed, while others disbelieved, yet if Allah had willed, they would not have fought one another. But Allah does what He wills. Now of course, people say why did Allah subhana wa tada do that? Right? We leave that up to a lot as Allah Subhana Allah mentions, right? He says, When I came to life, I don't know Yeshua, were lacking the life or animal you read. Right? So Allah Subhana Allah does what He wills what he wants. And so, life in itself, as we saw yesterday, we're going to be tested, we're going to go through hardships, but Allah subhana wa tada does what He
wills and he sends prophets and messengers to test us and you never know. You can ask Allah, right, which one which ones from amongst us who from amongst us is going to be best in our actions, which is perfect our actions to do things as best as we can.
But I wanted to move forward and not just go right from the beginning of the journey. I wanted to skip a few verses and get into a very important verse of the Quran. If not,
actually it is it is the most important verse in the Quran, right? Or we should say the most powerful verse in the Quran. This verse is in quotes. See, we all know it very well. I'll recite it and then we'll go through it very briefly in sha Allah Allah. Allah subhana wa Tana says in verse number 255 of students in Bukhara, Ruby Latina shaitan Emma Jean, along with a the
Then as he is February
he is ni lm oma Bernina ad
One fall fell home when you were here.
was here to see Osama T one. When I do,
wah wah wah laddie allow the so lots of headlights Allah says in verse number 255.
And we know this verse as being as a courtesy. Courtesy is the Arabic word for the chair, but is the throne of Allah Subhana Allah to add, okay, the throne of Allah. And this idea is powerful, it's mentioned to be the most powerful of the ayat of the Quran. And also we see in the Sunnah of the Prophet sent along there and he was sent him how he encouraged us to recite this is to recite this verse, especially after our prayers, right, so when we finish our prayers, we recite to as we could see our compulsory prayers, and the reward for reciting it after it is so powerful that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says there's nothing stopping that person from entering into paradise, except
death. Right, the fact that we are still alive, is is the reason why we are not entering into paradise right? Or, you know, what we mean by that, or what the prophets that along with some of the means, by that is, you know, when this ayah is being recited, and we believe in it, and we truly understand this ayah and we wholeheartedly, you know, dedicate ourselves to a loss of Hannah Montana, in in the components that are mentioned within this verse, Allah Subhana, WA tada is pleased with us, he's happy with us. His reward for us is that agenda, the highest levels of agenda is what we asked for. And we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to place us there. I mean,
so Allah subhanahu, Allah says, Allah, either in level, this ayah this verse can be broken down into 10 parts, okay, we're not going to go through the 10 parts. I did that a few weeks ago, in our family program, in the evening on a Friday evening, but we're just gonna you know, briefly explain that I am about to have a lesson that says a lot. There is no god worthy of worship, except in
the EverLiving all sustaining neither drowsiness nor sleep takes him over. Right.
Online. No, you have to communicate with your mother. Okay, go to the police.
Benefits of teaching from home right. So a lot of handling. Diana says
neither drowsiness nor sleep overtakes him, right Allah subhana wa tada doesn't become tired. He doesn't become, you know, exhausted, he doesn't feel as though he has no energy unless you can do it. And it doesn't feel the need to rest, right? Just know, right? I just, you know, not too long ago, put my head down. I thought somehow, let me just get some rest halfway through the day, so that I can be a little bit more energized and get online and shuttled off to Hannah. And then somehow I lay down about 10 minutes later thing down, the doorbell rang and the whole family was taking a nap at the same time tried to get all of them to go to sleep. So everyone took a nap. Also known as a
kalola. Right a nap in the afternoon, which is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I ended up having to wake up Come downstairs, notice you know, someone was at the door and loves blessing, you know, to see someone at your door. It's always nice to receive people hamdulillah
but then went upstairs, was, you know, gonna get back into bed, and then thought, you know what, there's not much time these will get ready about to come online. Ding Dong doorbell rang again. So Pamela, so, you know, Allison can't wait to add it, you know, he doesn't rest like we do. He doesn't feel the need to rest he doesn't. There's no there's no need for loss of data to take a break like us like you and I, we are human beings among our Creator, right, we rest because we need it we get tired, a loss of data doesn't get tired that way. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on whatever is on Earth. So everything belongs to a lot. What's in the Sky, what's on
Earth, everything belongs to a loss of habitat. And this is why when, as we mentioned yesterday, we say in that Illa or in that era, here on your own to Allah we belong and Tim we shall return. So we belong to a loss of Han what's a Hannah?
Who could possibly intercede with him without his permission? None of us has the ability, no prophet, no messenger except Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam has been given the or will be given, I shouldn't say has been but will be given on the Day of Judgment he will be given the ability to intercede for us for their own for his oma, the people who follow up on whether AlLahi wa sallam and so no one has the ability to intercede for someone else except with the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. So we can't just say Oh, you know what Prophet Muhammad is. He's going to do
He will. But he will only intercede after he's granted permission from a loss of Hannibal, what's ahead to intercede for us? he fully knows what is ahead of them and what is behind them. But no one can grasp any of his knowledge, loss or penalties. Allah knows everything except what He wills, right except what Allah Subhana Allah is willing to reveal. For example, if some things are revealed that will happen, then we know that other than that, we don't know. And we can't even try to guess because the knowledge of a lesser penalties and supersedes our knowledge. If you take a simple example, you know, none of us thought that in 2020, we would spend the year this way, right you see
memes traveling around or people posting things online. There was this joke or a picture that was that was, you know, being sent around and I saw it and it said
you know the biggest waste of money in 2020 was a yearly planner right? Was was a 2020 yearly planner, because there's nothing to plan for you stuck at home. Right? So we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make easy for us. We don't know at this point in time, we don't know right now, this is the way we feel. However, in three months, we might say some had a long look at all that's happening around the world, it might be amazing. We might be thinking to ourselves, I need like two planners, right? There's lots of bucha in our time, there's lots of hype that's coming to us lots of goodness, Allah Subhana wits, Adelaide bless us with things in ways and from places that we can't even
imagine. Right? So don't feel as though we're stuck in this is it? This is the future? No, we don't know a loss of pedowitz at his knowledge supersedes our knowledge. And this is what a lesson plan with Anna is saying here, right? That whatever is in his knowledge we don't know of except what he reveals to us, okay.
his seat or his courtesy encompasses the heavens in the earth. And the preservation of both does not tire him. Right. So looking after things, as we mentioned, doesn't make a loss of handle water at a tired, he doesn't become exhausted with it. And his quotacy right, his throne supersedes the size or it encompasses we should say, the heavens and the earth as in the skies and the earth. Right. That is the last panel what to add, and the preservation of both do not tire him for He is the Most High. The greatest right of loss of Penwith as the Most High. The greatest. Well, what what would you have? Well, Annie Alavi right. And Allie, and I have been a must have had with Anna's the most high
and the greatest, then Allah subhanaw taala points out something really interesting in the next verse, he says
ikura CD again, and you can read through the rest of it. Those of you that have your, your translations in front of you, Allah Subhana Allah says there's no compulsion in the religion. There's no compulsion in religion. If someone chooses it, they choose it if they are going to live by it and abide by the law if they choose not to. Well, that's their choice. So Allah Subhana Allah doesn't force it upon us, and neither should we force it upon others. But the truth is clear. Let there be no compulsion in religion in religion as a loss of henwick anicet says, but why roseboom he never hide the truth stands out clearly from false it. Okay, the truth is so clear. You know, when
you see something that's right, and something that's wrong, you know it right? You see someone breaking into another person's car, you know that that's wrong. Okay. It's not like someone who, okay, they're standing around their car, you know, they're looking like, oh, sorry, you know, would you happen to, you know, have your cell phone that I could use because that's my keys and my phone inside my car and you look in and you see the keys and the phone in there, and you help them and you call someone to come and help? There's a difference between noticing something looks right, and something looks wrong. Like someone comes by ticks. A rock smashes the window gets in the car, hot
wires, it takes off with it, right? So there's a difference between right and wrong. And we as human beings, we know when something is right, and we know when something is wrong. We have the ability to differentiate between that but sometimes our knifes stops us from acknowledging what's right and what's wrong. Right sometimes we know that this is the truth, but we're just yeah, lazy with it. Or Yeah, I'll do that later. When I get older I'll start to pray. What guarantee do you have that you're going to get older? Right? Well guaranteed you have it gonna live until you know a certain age? No, no guarantee right? There's no guarantee. So unless of Henry's ad is showing us here that
it could all have to do to be in a rush to you know, hide. The truth stands out clearly from falsehood. Of course we're talking about religion, we're talking about belief. We're talking about Dean right. So whoever renounces false gods and beliefs, sorry whoever renounces false gods and believes in Allah has certainly grasped the firmest unfailing, you know, handled has grabbed, held
of the dean, those who reject anything that is false and only accept worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada. Then they have truly seen and accepted the truth, right? They've not only understood the truth, but they've accepted the truth because there are some people who understand the truth but choose not to accept it. Right? There are some people who understand the truth in Islam, but they choose not to accept the truth. Okay. Then Allah Subhana, Allah says, And Allah is all fearing all knowing, right? Allah is all fearing, all knowing.
So that is also kind of weird to have. That is Allah's Deen, that is the idea of the end, that's, you know, it's important for us to know and understand I have to record it. And what comes right after it is, you know, a loss of bandwidth and is showing us this is the most powerful verse And the truth is clear, accept it, be successful, reject it.
We leave it up to our last panel to add, okay, we move on the next verse that we're going to take inshallah is
get to it.
First number 278, verse number 278, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions here, just put my notes back in front of me.
Okay, 278 and 279. Now, unless apparently dad is talking about something severe, something dangerous, you know, there's something that if we do is going to be harmful to us in this life and in the Hereafter. So unless we handle it, and it says, Yeah, Latina de la
meanie Allah Subhana, Allah now starts to talk about Riba interest, right? He then says, The 11 different move, moving, moving minima, he was Sunni, what to do?
bottom of hydro data is pointing out, you know, interest, it's really dangerous. It's like waging war against the loss of Hannibal Lecter, Hana, right? If you do not, then be aware of war, if you don't leave interest and avoid it, and stay away from it and be careful of it. Right refrain from indulging in it. And so a lot of the time, we think to ourselves, like what's the big deal that gets interest, it's something that's, you take a loan, and the interest is there, in order to help the person who's giving you the loan. But in reality, that's not what it is. Like, when you look deeper, you realize that is something that sets society off completely, I get it unbalances society, and it
creates this instability, where the rich become richer, and the poor become poor. Because the more someone takes and the more someone borrows, the more they're going to end up having to pay. But is that even fair? We see that Allah Subhana, Allah does not consider that to be fair, because when you borrow something from someone, they're able to lend it to you. We as human beings are supposed to look after each other, if someone has the wealth and the ability to lend it, and they lend it to you. And when you're done with it, and your time is up, then you return it to them, right. But when interest is now put in place, the more that you take, the more difficult it is for us to pay it
back. And the harder it becomes and the longer it takes to pay it back. And the more difficulty we put ourselves in, and then a person has to work a job, and then two jobs and three jobs. And they're like, you know what, I can't make ends meet, I'm stuck. This is hard. How am I going to be able to get through life in this way? It's difficult for people to do that. And so lots of headwinds, and it's showing us here, you know, the importance of looking after each other. First of all, I'm going to take a step back, instead of talking about interest in taking loans and so on, I'm going to talk about how we should learn to live within our means. Like if we can't afford something, why are we
trying to have it? If we need, for example, right? If someone needs a car, to go from point A to point B, if it's within their budget, and they can afford it 100 if it's something that they can't afford, then why put yourself in a situation where you know, you're not going to be able to afford it. And then you're going to have to go and borrow or take more and take more and take more. And then you end up having to pay so much more in return. Because the more you take with interest, the more you end up having to pay back. So if your $10,000 loan turns into $30,000, which it can,
people saying, Oh, that's unrealistic. No, it can. It can turn into that if someone's not able to pay it back. And then so how is this person who now just needs a car to go from point A to point B also has a car they can't even afford to pay for the car because they're so busy running around?
Trying to, you know, make money to pay back that loan. And so lots of Hanrahan is showing us here. It's like waging war with a law. Why? Because it's something he disliked so much. He doesn't like for people to be put in such a difficult situation, that sometimes they're forced to do things that are hard on. And a simple example of that is,
you know, when someone can't afford a loaf of bread, right, someone can't afford a loaf of bread.
And they go and they steal bread, or they steal something to eat.
Why are they in that situation in the first place, because they can't afford something, we have systems put in place in them to take care of those people. So look after people that are in need, and it's not just give them food and let them then look for their next meal, like feed them now. And then tomorrow, they're still going to be hungry. It's a system that's put in place that will empower them, that will look after them, that will take care of them, that will encourage them to earn for themselves. And this is where my brothers and sisters we see the way this how Viola did things was that they employed people to rate to help raise them up in status and rank, they employed people to
help them not just survive, to help them come out of their, their current situation, that's probably difficult for them, so that they can live a more comfortable, you know, self sufficient type of lifestyle. That's the way we sound. That's the way this habit of the Aloha animal, that's what the profits on longer I think you will sell them, you know, encourage people to do it happened to himself as well like for the job of your lover and how she employed the profits and longer and he was so low, but then looked after him as well and also married him because he was honest. And you know, it then gave him the ability to go and to travel and to do things, you know, for the business
or both of them are benefiting from right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here in the Quran, he dislikes interest and either taking, or giving interest, so much so that you consider as a person who gets involved in that, as someone who has waged war against him, someone that chose to blatantly go against the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Let's skip down a couple of verses, and go to verse number 281. And lots of haddaway data shows us here in this verse, and this is said to be the last ayah that was revealed to Muhammad Sallallahu and he was sending them. The Allahu anhu shows us in a nation that the last verse that was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was what took uielement total Jacqueline z in a law firm that was called Luna Kesava, to whom lay over the moon, Allah Subhana, which Allah mentions here, be mindful of the day when you will all be returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala when you will be returned to Allah. And be mindful of that day. Think of that day, every single day we should be
thinking there will be a day that I'm going to return to a law there will be a time that I returned to a loss of handling data that day can be today. Right that day could be today. We don't know but it could very well be today. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us long lives, to make us from amongst those that are able to live in this dunya happily with our family and enjoy our time and also to sacrifice and give to a loss of language and in ways that he is pleased with and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the best of this life and the best of the hereafter. So Allah subhana wa tada then says, to author Kowloon St. Makassar, but welcome layover, then every soul will
be paid in full for what it has done and none will be wronged. Justice will be taken. Allah subhanho wa Taala will also administer justice, what is deserving for a person they will get what a person did in their lives. You know, a loss of habitat is merciful. No doubt he begins with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa hain. Right so Allah subhanho wa Taala affirms and reaffirms and reconfirms with us that He is merciful. And he shows us multiple times throughout the for an endless amount of the profits and longer and he was send them, they even sent the Prophet as mercy. He sent the prophets along, I think he was sending them as mercy. Well, not some data in the maternal alameen as mercy for every single one of the creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala had,
but here it was reminding us what do we owe them and to their own fee. So much what who lives in cassava to whom Allah,
Allah subhana wa Adam reminds us that we will return to Him and this is the part where I bring up what we went through today. So handle that today was the very first jenessa that I attended.
Lead for someone who passed away of Coronavirus, right. And
that man you say that Instagram is not working, it seems like it is.
So the good thing about this new platform I'm using is I could see all the chats on YouTube and Facebook.
So and I can actually even bring them in
and then says your Instagram isn't working. But I think it is because
I think it is working because everyone else seems to be perfectly fine on there from the left. So if anyone has any issues with any streaming, but there's that's the reason why I'm streaming on multiple platforms, so you can easily add to that inshallah. Okay. So, today, very first janazah, that I lead,
in a cemetery for someone who passed away of Coronavirus. And the experience was interesting, because the way it happens is
the person who passed away, if they were confirmed positive, the funeral home or the cemetery officials, you know, the employees there, they will look after bringing the body, the relatives are not allowed to see the body, they're not allowed to interact with the body, that could be a possibility of seeing, I don't know, based on whether it was presumptive or confirmed. However, the way that it happens is, you know, the family members don't get to see their loved one that they've lost. And it's sealed, you know, the body is sealed, there's no holes, so that you can take place just brought straight to the cemetery. And then the grave is dug, and the body is placed right on
top of the grave on those, you know, straps. And the the coffin is placed there, the body is placed there. And then the official step aside, and only 10 people are allowed to approach, you know the grave, in order to pray the jenessa. So they let us approach it, we pray the agenda as a prayer. And then we have to go back and sit in our cars, we're not allowed to stay there, right, we're not allowed to lower the body and throw the dirt into the grave, like we typically do take a shovel and, you know, put the dirt into the grave, you're not allowed to do that. Now, you have to leave the site, go sit in your car, and the officials will come, they will, you know, put the body down in the
grave, remove everything, put the dirt over it, seal the grave. And then once they leave, then the loved ones and the family and friends and so on can re approach the grave. However, only 10 people at a time are allowed to do that. So it was a very interesting, you know, janessa also because you, you get a feel for what those family members are going through so handled extremely, extremely difficult, you know, to see people who's you know, their father, their husband, their loved one is is now being buried an agenda in Islam, we wish that agenda would be filled with people, right filled with people.
So that they can pray for our mercy, pray for our forgiveness, pray for a failure from Allah subhanho wa Taala to be given to us. But when 10 people are their maximum 10 people, you feel something is wrong, something is off, something is off, it's not correct. But it's what it is, we have to deal with it at this point in time. And so when they lower the body, then you can re approach and you know, if you want to make dua out for the person who passed away, we did a quick, you know, like a five minute talk. And then some other family and relatives came. So we you know, we've decided so that others can come and pray the jenessa as well. So you're praying agenda as a
prayer in a cemetery for someone you can't see you can't interact with them, of course, you can interact with them, but there's no, absolutely no interaction whatsoever. And you can't even very, you know, the person who passed away in Islam, that's an important thing I know, for non Muslims, I have non Muslim family and relatives, my relatives are not Muslim. You know, for them, it's just a matter of standing there and seeing other people carry out the janessa. But for us as Muslims, it's the opposite. We want to carry the body, we want to put the body down to the grave, we want to, you know, cover the body and put the dirt into the grave and so on. We know that there's a reward
attributed to it, right? And we look after our loved ones after they passed away even until they're in the grave, right. And after they're integrated as well. We still have respect for them. And we still respect their friends and family and relatives that they liked, or they interacted with.
But one thing that really hit me hard and reminded me of this verse, what duck will Yeoman to Gerona Fie in a law was when the son of the brother who passed away today came with a piece of paper, right, just a regular piece of paper, nothing fancy.
You just had a piece of paper and on the piece of paper was the name of his father. You know his full name, his age.
The day that he was born and the date or the year he was born, and, you know, basically his date of birth and date of death was written on it. And he took this piece of paper, as the officials told them, and just put it on top of the grave just to identify that grave for the officials afterwards, so that they know where it is. And that was really interesting, because I thought to myself, we live through this life, hoping we're gonna have a large jenessa hoping there's gonna be a lot of people that will pray for us, hoping that, you know, crowds of people will make do out for us, that people will remember us that we will leave a legacy behind. And you know, it's interesting, Alice penalties
and it doesn't need 10s of 1000s of people to make your offer us and our jenessa we are the ones who need it. If Allah wants us to leave a legacy behind, even if we pass away in an area where there's no one, no one to even notice that we've passed away, unless a pathway to Hannah will make an example out of us for the benefit of human beings. Right. And so that was something I was thinking when I was there earlier today, of how important it is for us to live in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala added to constantly give to Allah, because there will come a time when we returned to a lot. And we need to be mindful of that day that we will regardless of what we try and do and
how we try to protect ourselves, we will leave this earth.
And the question then is what happens after we leave this earth? Not what happens at our jazz because we're not going to be there not? Who is going to put dirt in our grades because we're not going to beat it like our soul will be removed and then it's replaced after everyone walks away. Those last footsteps today I was walking away. And I was thinking to myself these are last footsteps. Now the angels are coming and they will question us in our grave. Who is your Lord?
Who did you follow? As in which prophet messenger who did you follow? And what was your deen was your way of life that will be asked to us in our great and if we did good in this light. It doesn't matter if five or 10 people pray Our janazah if that moment is successful at
that moment is successful and hamdulillah. So Allah subhana wa tada is saying here, what the full Yeoman total Jamuna Fie in a lot there will be a day when we return to a lot. What happens on that day is what's important to us. Right, not what happens in terms of who's there but what happens to us on that day, not the people we've left behind, because we left them behind. They are just looking at us as an example. Or you know what, I'm going to be in that same situation as well. But now it's time for me to move on into the next stage. The photos are the life of the death, the life of the death, the life, the life of death, technically right the life after death of this world, and we
continue to live in the hereafter. ask Allah subhana wa which added to grant us ease.
Then we move on to the last verse of Sudan through Bukhara a very simple thing that we're going to point out there Allah subhanho into Hana says lead you can lead for love with Epson Illa Allah subhana wa tada does not require of any one of us, right of any soul more than what it can afford. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't expect us to jump through hoops and to do you know, crazy tricks and things like that to get through life. no loss of handling data has equipped us with everything that we need in order to be successful in our lives. And remember, success is in the pleasure of a loss upon which added success is not in driving a car that's, you know, that's been coated in gold, or
you know, to have a home that is a certain amount of square feet. Success is in the happiness and the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada, if we can please Allah in what we're doing, then that is success in this life. Right? And so lots of penalties, Allah doesn't give us anything, any hardship, any burden, that is too difficult for us to get through. So anything that you're experiencing in life, my brothers and sisters, if you feel right now that you can't get through it, you're absolutely wrong. absolutely wrong. And look what improves it. Now you can be for long enough son in law who's right? Every single one of us is able to get through the hardships that we are being faced
with in life.
The question there is, how are you? And how am I going to get through those hardships? How would I do with it? Am I just going to collapse? Am I am I just going to say you know what? Because I'm going through this I'm just not going to do anything else? Or am I going to stand strong and say Allah Subhana Allah gave me this. I will accept it. I will embrace it. This is from Allah and I'm going to cherish this hardship and get through it. Easier said than done. I know. My wife is right through the wall over there. She's probably gonna say yeah, easier said than done, buddy. Right when you go through hardships you're the biggest complainer you wind like crazy, right? So how do I it's
true, right? We complain and complain and complain. But that's just because
Because we're human, and then what we need is someone to like,
virtually slap us.
not physically slap us, but virtually slap us to remind us that, hey, you can get through this wake up, you're complaining about the color of a law, you're complaining about the decree of Allah, Allah has made this happen to you. He's made it happen to me. Why complain about it, accept it, embrace it, there's a reason for it.
It is what it is when we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant the strength. I'll mention one last thing with regards to this point,
you know, is on the way to the janessa. And I called my father in the car as I was driving.
Without using my phone, don't worry, I pushed the button. And I said,
Hey, Google, called dead. And it calls that, right. And my father's in the hospital, he was readmitted in the hospital today. So please remember him in your behalf.
So as I'm driving, I had to do one of the one of the most difficult things that any child can do for their parents. So I'm going where am I going? Those of you who know where I was going, you know that I was going to lead a janazah at the cemetery, right? So I'm talking to my father on the phone was admitted in the hospital. And he's been in the hospital a number of times this year.
And as I'm driving, he asked me He's like, so where are you going? I'm like, I just have something to do. He's like, Yeah, what are you doing? You're always busy, you're supposed to be home, you're not supposed to be out, right? You're supposed to be at home. You know, this is quarantine time. You know, he's just reminding me of that. He's not really saying it with that many words. Because of his condition, he wasn't able to speak much. And He even told me that he's like, Look, I'm not able to speak. So we'll talk more later.
But he's like, you're supposed to be home. And I'm like, yeah, you know, I have something to do for the community. And I was on my way to the cemetery, to lead janessa for someone who passed away. Now, I'm not going to tell someone who has really severe health issues, you know, that I'm going to the cemetery to Lita janaza. Prayer, he just got admitted in the hospital, I can break his heart. So I had to sort of, as we say, in Arabic,
Denton, right to just find your way around, navigate your way through that sentence to try and answer without lying to your father and be like, Oh, I'm just going to the store or something, because I'm not going to the store. So I just sort of prolonged it until he was tired of talking to me, and he's like, okay, I'll talk to you later. Not feeling good right now. So, you know, Charlotte, may Allah make it easy to get my son on to the children, and, and then, you know, emotionally hung up. So I was thinking to myself, so Pamela,
that's a challenge Allah Subhana, Allah would not put me in a situation that I'm not able to handle, I have to learn from the situation as well. I'm going to a cemetery to bury someone whose father, you know, the father of a friend of mine in the community, I'm thinking to myself, there may be a day when I'm going to the cemetery to bury my father as well. It's a reality. Like, I'm not going to cry over it as much as I want to. And I'm not going to, you know, complain about it, because it is a reality. So a lot, some kind of way to add, you know, gives us things in life, that if we understand the truth behind it, it makes us stronger, and that's what we need to do. So we move on to verse
number eight of swords on Amazon. Okay. So earlier on, which is the family of Enron.
And I also had a voice and it talks about the family of Enron from versus number 33. onwards. Okay, verse number 33 onwards, Allah subhana wa tada talks about the family of Enron.
But in verse number eight, a lesson handling data shows us a drop.
In verse number nine, it shows us a drop, and drop are important. Many of us when we think of do we think of, you know, supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala, raising our hands asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for goodness and higher than butter can forgiveness and genda and food, because I can smell it again, right to smell the food, and you just want it. But sometimes we take drive to the next level. Some people feel scared to make your house some people will not come up with a draw out from their own minds, their own heart rate, something that is relevant to them their own language. And that's a mistake. Yes, it's good to learn the draw out of the Koran like we're going to learn now. But it's
also important for us to ask a loss of Henry Tana at times of hardship and difficulty in our language from our minds from our hearts, whatever we need, without any barriers. Don't think a lot can't hear. You don't take a lot of penalties and it doesn't want you to call
To him he says with your Rooney a steady level call upon me I will answer you. So here in verse number eight Allah Subhana which Allah says well burn
to a zoo burner burner that is hiding eterna Wahhabi let me lead
this and then in verse number nine a
to see in
leverage for me
the converse number eight
are lots of how do we turn that you know is is showing us here a duality that's being said that's being mentioned he says I'm gonna lead to Hulu banner banner, that is the data they say, Our Lord call upon Allah our Lord Do not let our hearts deviates after You have guided us. This is a powerful if this is it for today this is it right? This is the duality these are the I know we took it to a courtesy but we all know I have to push the this is a new idea for us today. Right verse number eight asuna Mr. Bene led to Zulu banner that it had a tenor. What have you let me let him cut off and grant us Your mercy in Mecca until we have indeed you are the giver of all bounties. Right? So
Allah subhana wa tada gives us everything that we need a loss of Hannah, who is and is the one who can grant us the things that we want in our lives. But what is more important than thing this is the first part of this bene led to Zulu banner back into his head, he will have let me let him karma. We ask Allah subhana wa Jalla not to let our hearts deviate. Those of us who are Muslim Alhamdulillah we're Muslim now. But what guarantee do you have? And what guarantee Do I have that we will be listening tomorrow? None. Except that we continue to work at that. My brothers and sisters too many times have we seen people leave Islam, too many of our friends and family and relatives Do we know
of who have left Islam or who are leaving Islam? And we do nothing about it. We sit back and we say, well, it's their responsibility. Yes, it is their responsibility. But at the end of the day, we have a responsibility as well. When the temple min, come on Mattoon, yedder Runa Illa, Allah Subhana, Allah says, Let there be from amongst you, a group of people and among those who dedicate themselves to calling people to goodness, and especially when it's family, when it's relatives, when it's people that we know that we're that we're close to, it's important for us to call them to have us a pen with data to invite them to a loss of handwritten, and how do we do that? It could be a simple
invitation like saying Suhana law in front of them. When you say some kind of law in front of someone, sometimes they think to themselves, what is this thing you just finished saying?
They question it and then you explain it to them. Oh, I was praising. And hamdulillah right. Oh, praise due to Allah Allahu Akbar. Allah is the Greatest right? Why do you say that? What's the purpose of that? What why even mentioned these things? Now you can explain it to them. Right?
So my brothers and sisters, we looked at Doral here, but we looked at the importance of us making ourselves as well. We'll take another shot a lot of time. The next is a loss of Henry's and it says in verse number 14 of soda Enron Okay, verse number 14 of suta. Enron, Allah Subhana Allah mentions the things that he beautified this world with for us to enjoy. He says, zooming in and in serum Pusha T mean and Nisa, Benny and I will find out bleeding parati Nina's gonna be well feel watching
someone that's evil.
out there any commentary donia.
The ending of the verse will take the end first. The ending of the verse will love we're in divorce. The loss of Henry Tyler says, but with a loss is the finest destination.
Is that destination here? Earth Milton moved on.
That destination is definitely not this earth. But this earth is beautiful. We enjoy it. We look at it, we treasure it right we cherish this earth. Allah subhana wa tada says, z nothingness. Her Whoosh. What do you mean? And he said he went Benny, lots of headwinds. And it shows us that he made for us in this world. You know, things that we desire, and from the things that we desire is a spouse, right a spouse so I'm one of the options
agender in Islam, this is the way we do it right? So a spouse.
And then Allah Subhana Allah says, children, when Benny
cannot lead in a month off mean that they have you will feel better and treasures of gold and silver as in wealth of gold and silver minerals that have value. Find horses, your beautiful cart, your Honda, your Toyota, right your Mazda, your Ford, your Chrysler, your
Chevrolet or GMC, whatever it is, if you drive a Lamborghini Ferrari doesn't matter. Your vehicle, your horse, your mode of transportation is something that you treasure and your cherished you cherish and the loss of habitat and gave it to us in this dunya cattle food for us to eat fertile lands that produces things right has been made appealing to people these are our desires we wish for it. And these Allah Subhana Allah says, are the pleasures of this worldly life, but with Allah is the finest destination.
We ask Allah Subhana Horta, Allah to grant us the finest destination, genital filled dose of Allah, the highest level of Paradise, so that we can be closest to Mohammed, someone long Rather, he was someone like this, when we look after orphans, we are this close to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, right.
And we will be in the highest ranks. And we asked a lot of candidates and into places there and to accept our days of fasting and to make us from amongst those that sacrifice all of the food and all of the drink and our energy and our time and our health and all the things that we're sacrificing for him. So that alone can with Allah grants us even more in return, more health, more food, more wealth, more time, more Buttercup, more family, more ease, right? The hardship we exchange for ease, and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with that. That is all the time that we have for today. My brothers and sisters, remember to make dua out to Allah subhanho wa Taala, from your
heart, from your mind, from your tongue in the language that you can speak in these last five minutes before so lots of money before the end is called make do and call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala for the best of this dunya for the best of the ASPCA and for pleasant health and time in this life. I mean, just on a level Fabian was set equal to why he will got a castle or some level I send them over here I don't have enough
