I hope that everyone is doing well in sha Allah to Allah. I hope that you are all benefiting from this month of Ramadan and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna to keep every single one of you and your family members safe and protected throughout this time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah grant you the best of this life and the best of the hereafter. I mean
so today is Wednesday, April 21 2021. It is also the hopefully the last day that it snows for this winter season. And hamdulillah we had some nice snow it looked really nice now it's cold out and not really happy to be wearing my winter coat again I thought I would have hung that up and you know put it aside for the season. But I'll handle it is what it is and everything else kind of a tad
um so it's cold outside therefore we need to stay inside and stay warm. And this is why we've got the sweater on and we're ready to go with our to see the class in shot a lot of data.
To start off with the beginning of the ninth Jews we are looking at sorta to our off, okay, we're still continuing through sorta to our off and in this part of the surah Allah subhana wa to Allah is showing us the story of Musa it has set up from verses number 103 until about 156 so there's a good you know, 50 over 50 verses where Allah subhana wa tada tells the story of Musa alayhis salam and he relates a number of things he goes into the story of Musa alayhis salaam with regards to the magician's, and that aspect of how he goes to fit own and you know, farallon threatens them and threatens to kill them.
We see the incident of the parting of the sea, which is mentioned here as well. In this part of what I took out off, and how much it is Sam's followers, you know, still hold on to the idea of idol worshipping even after they reach the other side. This is where most Adda has said on goes away and talks to or communicates we should say with Allah subhanho wa Taala and he leaves her own alley, his son and his brother in charge. And his brother is there, you know, looking after things for them.
And the the the the followers of mufa followers of Mossad is Sadam, they take their jewelry, their gold and silver and stuff and they put it together and they make this cow right to hollowed out cow. And when the wind blows, the wind blows through it and it makes a sound right Just like if you have a bottle, you know and you take the top of the bottle and you go over the top you'll hear a whistling sort of sound over it. So most Adda his son and he did that? Well, he didn't do that his people did that he was gone communicating with Allah Subhana Allah and when he returned, he noticed that you know, they had still not let go of the idea of needing to have something there to worship
that you know is is a physical sort of structure or a physical being in front of them.
Masada has sent him he went away for 40 days, right? And he was communicating with Allah subhana wa talei receives the commandments and so on. Mossad is asked to see Allah subhana wa to Allah as well. So this is related to us in this part of the surah. And I'm just going through it really quickly because there's over 50 verses right all together, so we put it all together inshallah Tada.
So he asks to see a loss of hanway to Allah. And Allah Subhana Allah tells him to look at the mountain, which of course collapses, right? And we know that Allah Subhana Allah has power and miton strength is even greater than any of his creation. No doubt, he created it. So it's like if I was to say that I was the person who invented this remote control, don't I have troll over it? Yes, I do. Don't have the power to crush it. Yes, I do. Of course, we can't compare ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala but it's just something to keep in mind to show us how, you know we at times may feel that
you know, the world is so great and has such awesome things and and we start to bring Allah subhanaw taala
At times down to a level where it's sort of, you know, nearing the the status of his creation when in reality that isn't the case, right Allah subhana wa tada is far greater than his creation.
Sorry, I'm just gonna make sure I don't roll over any wires back here. And I also hope that the sound quality is good, you know on on your end on Facebook and YouTube.
So yeah, Musa alayhis salam comes back, and he finds his people worshipping this calf or this cow that they made out of jewelry. He gets upset with fit or he gets upset with her on his brother. And he grabs him by the beard, and he grabs him by the hair right as long hair. He grabs him by the hair and he grabs his beard and he's like, what are you doing? I thought I left you in charge. I can't believe that you left the people doing this. Now.
Heroin responds to Moosa it has sent him, you know, showing him how he knows what the people were doing. You know what they were doing was wrong. While at the same time he knows that. If he was to tell them not to do this, they probably wouldn't listen to him. And so he thought to himself, let me wait until you return Moosa. Right. Let me wait until you return, so that you can speak to them and tell them that what they're doing is wrong because they will listen to you. They probably won't listen to me. And so that's, you know, something that we learn as an interesting aspect of the story of Musa alayhis salaam and his brother, Harun Ali,
We transition now in diverse over to verse number 180. Okay, so we've skipped through a lot of verses, like I said, about 53 verses there. In verses number 163, to 169. Allah Subhana Allah address the Jewish and the Sabbath, Allah was upset with how they used deceitful tricks, right. And that's something that you still see up until today within that aspect of the Sabbath, you know, they will not do certain things that they technically should or could do.
And so a bus from Hanoi to Anna has, you know, laid out every one of the Scriptures very clearly invest for those nations and people to follow and we follow that of
that which was revealed to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the Quran, right? I was thinking of an example to share with you but I think I will not share it at this point in time. inshallah. I'll share it later on. Okay, possibly not today. All right, so let's go to verse number 180. In verse number 180, Sula are off. Okay, so one or two out off, which is in verse in the ninth of the Quran.
Allah Subhana which Allah says, whether you heal as
a person further Ruby how well
you will find on Effie Esma he is a huge ism when Emma can we ever met
on obasa panel which it says when Illa Hill Esma will herson after the rule will be how Allah has the most beautiful names so call upon him by them. Learn the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala call upon Allah subhana wa Taala by his names, and this is why for the last few months in our mustard we were doing a series on the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right.
I can actually get my notes which are right over there I have my cue card still from every single Juma that we did. The Juma has of the last I think three or four months at least, probably even more than that has been about the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we've taken one or two and sometimes maybe even three of the names of Allah every single week. And I feel that that is an was something important to do. And we will continue to learn more about Allah subhanho wa Taala I decided to start with the names of Allah but we will transition after what I'm alone in sha Allah to Anna after completing more of the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. We will look at more aspects of
this Deen and our belief in a lot. So that's what I thought I would focus on for the next year possibly with regards to topics for Juma advice. What is relevant for us in our Deen, what do we need to know? And how do we understand life while connecting to Allah subhanho wa tada we all need to connect to Allah. We all need to understand
To our Creator, if we say,
Allah is a center. What does that mean? If we say Allah is a volume, does that mean if someone says, I'm having an anxiety attack? Which of the names of Allah should I use? Right? Someone says, I'm, you know, in a really difficult financial situation right now, which of the names of Allah should I use? Right? So these are questions that we need to keep in mind, how do we call upon Allah subhana wa tehila if I'm going through a stressful time in life, or if I have fear of something that I'm experiencing, maybe it's a, an exam that I need to do, for example, you know, and that fear is within me, what do I need to do to call or which of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Do I need
to use in order to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala? Who will help me in that specific situation? So these names of Allah are important. For example, we learned that Allah Subhana Allah is produce the most holy, right? What does that mean? What does that mean? If Allah subhanho wa Taala is produced the most holy, what does it mean? It means not only is he the most holy, but he is free from any sort of attribute that links to any of his creation, while at the same time free from any kind of
characteristic or attribute that indicates or shows some kind of weakness, right? He is the most pure,
right? The most pure.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala, starting with understanding him through his names, is what we as Muslims need to do. Why? Because Allah says in this verse, When Eden
was nerfed to Ruby,
Allah has the most beautiful names, so call upon him by them. Now, when we look at names, we're talking about names, right? Allah has the most beautiful names, but does that mean that we are allowed to use those names or not? And of course, if we want to use one of the names of Allah subhanho data like he is a Kareem, we have to put our job before it, right.
So for example, we would say the law and Abdullah man, Abdur Rahim, Abdul Quddus, abdus salam, Abdullah semir. Abdul
was the name I mentioned before I mentioned a name kidding, I'm just kidding. Alright, so all of these names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Hannah, if we want to give them to our children, for example, we need to make sure that we associate the name to Allah, and that the person who holds that name is a servant or worshipper of Allah subhana wa, tada, who is the owner of that name. Does that make sense? So for example, someone wants the name of their kid Hamid. Right? You would name them Abdul Hamid, you would not name them al Hamid.
That is specifically for Allah.
I'll produce is Allah. Right. So Abdul Quddus is the servant or worshipper of produce. And so that is how we give these names to our children. We don't actually give them the name of Allah Subhana widad we associate and link our selves and our children to Allah subhanho wa, taala as worshipers and servants of Allah. Now, what about other names? Right? If we were to simply take a step back and try to focus on the names that we give to our children? Is it permissible for us to give our children the names of Allah? Yes. Like we mentioned by linking the name of Allah to Allah subhana wa Tada. But what if we wanted to give other names to our children, for example, a rose which is
beautiful or some kind of a flower that's, you know, has a nice look nice colors, nice scent? Is it permissible to, you know, give our children that type of a name, like Zahara or
wild or violet rose, right? Are these permitted names? Yes, islamically. We can give names to our children that have good meanings. As long as the name doesn't have a bad meaning, then we can give it to our children. What we mean by bad meanings is that it also doesn't contain any element or aspect of Schick. So it doesn't go against the loss of Hannah Montana in any way, shape, or form.
Like, for example, if someone was to call their child ultimate, because their last name is Hulk, right? So they named their child ultimate, right? And people start calling him the ultimate, the ultimate Hulk. That's not permissible, right?
I don't know where that came from. I didn't premeditate that our planet, but somehow that just came into my mind right. So we cannot give our children names that take away from Allah subhanaw taala or names that Allah is deserving of right.
If a If a person wants to name their, their child,
for example, that would write ERISA Moosa, our own zekeriya Yeah, write the names of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala, ad Yunus right.
Are these permissible to do Yes, of course. islamically we can give those names. And these are names that you know carry good meanings because they are names that
are or were given to prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now,
what about giving names to our children? that were the names of the Sahaba or the Allah and now we see that some of the Sahaba actually changed their names or became known as something different within Islam. Right, they would have a locker but or a cornea. Okay? like say for law, right? It's not an actual name of the companion, but something that he was known for Khalid evening worried.
So can we use the names of some of the Sahaba Khalid Abu Bakar Amara Fatima
Isha Khadija. Yes, we can write these are good names. What are the best of names? Well, there are two names that are the best. Allah subhana wa Tana loves Abdullah, and I have done rock Man, these are for boys. What about if it's a girl and you want to use Abdullah? Well, you simply change that to add to Emma, Emma to LA.
Alright, Emma to LA, instead of Abdullah Emma toolbar. And so that's a little bit with regards to names islamically. And how we can, you know, give some of these names to our children.
Let me just quickly browse through here once I have.
Someone is quickly asking a question, what is the fifth of this year? So we're looking at about $10 and shot along to add, generally it's about $10 per person, in each family, okay, per person, per person within your family. All right, let's move on. Verse number 187. This is an important verse here. Okay, verse 187. Is Luna Karen is it now Melissa, in Marina
Del Robbie, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that they will ask you about the Sangha. The last day, they will ask you about the Day of Judgment, when will the end of times be? They ask you Oh, Prophet regarding the hour, when will it be say that knowledge is only with my Lord, okay, well enough anymore her in the lobby.
that knowledge is only with my Lord.
He alone will reveal it when the time comes. It is too tremendous for the heavens and the earth, and will only take you by surprise. They ask you, as if you had full knowledge of it. Say that knowledge is only with Allah, but most people do not know. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being asked about this, the end of times. Now this is an important verse because I remember every single animal bond, I usually touch upon this verse. And I do so because every single year as an oma, as Muslims, we seem to be going through some kind of challenge, some kind of difficulty, some hardship that we did not think was going to be the case the previous year. And this year, actually,
let me just go back to last year, last year, when the pandemic began.
And we were staying at home I was saying, You know what? Look at this Ramadan. We haven't ever experienced this and none of us ever thought that we would experience you know, having a Ramadan at home, even though this was you know, something that in history was not
knew, right having pandemics or plagues and stuff like that. But somehow Allah, every single year, there's something different. Last year, we thought that last Ramadan would be the only year and the only animal bomb that we experienced this way virtually like this, where we were not live in the masjid, and still live streaming. But in the masjid with, you know, brothers and sisters in front of us with children running around with, you know, if thought of being prepared and food packages coming to us and dates being given out to each other bottles of water and so on. You know, last year, we were like, some have a lot of really sad really feeling down that Ramadan had to be this
way. And then the year passed. And here we are, again, this year, we ask ourselves, is this a sign of the end of times, because last year, many Muslims were saying that this is a sign of the end of times, this is it, you know, it's a major sign and things like that are happening, and so on and so forth. Lots of people started to think this way and started to spread things around the world, especially on the internet, about how the COVID-19 was a sign of the end of times, and you know, trying to link it to some of the Hadeeth and stuff like that of the Prophet sallallahu. And he was, and I remember reminding us last year, that we cannot claim or state that this is what was mentioned
in that Hadeeth for example, until after it has passed. So after something has come and gone, that is when we can say Okay, that was the sign that was being mentioned in that Hadeeth. But that doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala can't bring something new. So as time goes on, you'll notice that a loss of habitat brings so many new things the year before may have been something going on in France with the Muslims, right. The year prior to that could have been Burma and what's happening there in Burma in Myanmar, the year prior to that could have been
you know, something else and something else and something else going back for example, to September 11. We would say to ourselves, you know what September 11 happened look at how difficult times are and how Muslims are being treated and so on. And so every single year something tends to be different than the year that passed this year we see that we are somewhat in the same position. So it makes us wonder
where are we as an oma What are we doing this differently? What have we done differently? Have we simply complained and said hey you know what, I'm tired of this I'm gonna go live my life and do what I want and you know, not follow guidelines and not follow advice and not follow you know, anything that is being told to me and just do as I wish, or are we going to come to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a different condition. And that's really what we need to think to ourselves here Allah subhana wa ohana is saying to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the people will ask you about the end of times. When is the last day when is this final day? Tell them that knowledge is
with Allah. I don't know. that knowledge is not with me. that knowledge is with Allah subhana wa tada
it's too much for us to handle too much for us to be able to live with knowing when exactly the world would end. And that is something that is only with a loss hanaway to Allah. But most people will not accept that. Most people will not submit to it more say no, but I need to know how is this and what is that and, and so on and so forth. And so curiosity that we have as human beings sometimes takes us into positions in life where we are confusing our own cells, or we're confusing our own cells. And this is why if you look at some of the next verses Allah subhana wa tada says, you know, turn to Allah
Calum legal lien FC Neff, and when Donlan Illa Masha, Allah say I have no power to benefit or protect myself. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling this habit of the Allah Allah and telling the machete corn Of course, I have no power to benefit or protect myself, except with the will of Allah. If I had known the unknown, I would have benefited myself tremendously
and no harm would have ever touched me. I am own a warner and I deliver of good news for those who believe in an inland Beshear only call me you know, very important message for us. My brothers and sisters had we had the profits on a lower end he was sending been given knowledge about certain things that were happening and going to happen. They wouldn't have happened to him, he would have avoided them he would have, you know, worked his way around it. You have to Allah Subhana
Avoid tailor made it such that he did not know. And therefore the profits on a longer it he was sending them says, I don't know. And Had I known, I wouldn't have gone through these hardships and challenges, right? No one from amongst us wants to go through hardships and challenges, right? Some of us say yes, bring it all in bringing it all in. It's forgiveness. But when we're going through it, it's very hard and difficult to withstand those challenges that we face. Then in verse number 189.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We're Lydia Hala pecan min nevsun wahiduddin wa Jalla. Minh has Abuja Hialeah school. Would you? Sorry. Well, Jana Minh has Oh jaha Yes, cuando la her, Allah Subhana Allah says, He is the one who created you from a single soul, then from it, right? You created you from a single soul, then from it from yourselves.
Made it spouse, so he may find comfort in her. So Allah Subhana Allah is showing us he created Adam Allah has sent him then from Adam and he sent him created her work, then from Adam and her work come all of the human beings, right. And we as humans, right, we come from our parents, after he had been united with her of us, Henry Dionysus, after Adam alayhis salaam was united with her what she carried a light burden developed gradually, when it grew heavy, they prayed to a lot, their Lord, if You grant us good offspring, we will certainly be grateful. So as human beings, we want a little more, we asked for a little more, if you grant us more yet Allah, we're going to be grateful give us
a little more, we're going to be grateful. And I think I was mentioning this yesterday or the day before, how as human beings, when we're given a little, we want a little more, and then we get a little more, and we want some more, and then we get some more and we want even more. And then we get even more and Allah subhana wa towheaded constantly is giving to us, right? Whether we are believers are not Allah subhana wa tada takes care of his creation. So you'll notice it isn't only the animals that are being taken care of by a law. It isn't only the trees and the plants that are being took care of by Allah, the weather that comes to us the snow that came to us today, there's a reason why
the snow came. There's a reason why it became cold. There's a reason why the snow fell. There's a reason why the weather has changed today. We might know why, or, or even understand it, but Allah has a plan.
La has a plan, and the plan of a loss of Hanoi to Hana. We don't know.
But he's providing for his creation. He's providing for the plants he's providing for the trees he's providing for the animals he's providing for us as human beings, whether we believe or we disbelief, Allah will provide for human beings
in this world,
and if they seek after the dunya, Allah subhana wa tada will give them more of it. You want it you will have it, you will increase yourself in knowledge, you will increase yourself in expertise, you will increase yourself in in whatever capacity in confidence right in self esteem, in motivation. And through that you will build yourself into a scenario where you will get more from this world. And Allah will give to you.
But just because someone has a lot of this world doesn't mean that they have everything. And I was thinking about this earlier today when I was in prison. On You know, Mondays and Wednesdays I go into prison and I meet with the inmates.
And I was thinking how I was thinking a number of things today was was an eye opener. But I was thinking a number of things thinking how
Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna
blessed us with Ramadan.
And as much as we feel that fasting is taking away from our energy, taking away from the luxuries taking away from what Allah has given to us in terms of blessings and bounties of food and, and we spoke about it yesterday and I know some of you some of you even messaged my wife and complained about how not complained. But you were laughing at the fact that I was saying how, you know I choose my clothing and shop and stuff like that. But
I know Milan has taken away from some of the things that we enjoy in life. But that aspect of taking away from life is actually a provision from Allah subhanho wa Taala
in other ways, what do I mean by this?
For some of us who are hot tempered, right, some people have, you know, hot temper, they're always you know, just worked up. During the Ramadan. Allah provides you with patience.
During the Ramadan, Allah provides you with being calm.
Right today when I was visiting with with some of the inmates, I was thinking to myself, everyone is so calm. The Muslims are relaxed. The Muslims are not worked up. The Muslims are at ease. The Muslims are thinking of Allah. The Muslims are praying their prayers. At times, many Muslims are not thinking of Allah. At times, many Muslims are not praying their prayers at times, many Muslims are not common at ease with Allah subhana wa Tada. But throughout Ramadan, Allah takes away some things, but he blesses us with others. He's providing comfort, he's making us feel soothed and calm.
And that's a blessing that he's granting us by taking away the food by taking away the energy that makes certain people feel wild. And so an hamdulillah it's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala, to have this month of Ramadan, and to be from amongst those who appreciate what Allah Subhana Allah has given to us. Sometimes Allah needs to take things away in order for us to appreciate when he gives.
Does that make sense? When Allah subhana wa tada take certain things away from us, we realize how much of a blessing it was in our lives and we didn't thank Allah. Once he gives it back to us when he gives it back to us and shot a lot of data. We realize how much we cherish that and how important it is for us in our lives.
Then Allah subhana wa tada says, but when he granted their descendants, good offspring, they associated false gods in what he has given them. Exalted is Allah above what they associate with him. So Allah says that Adam in what they want doing right, they were feeling like down they were feeling bad. And then Allah Subhana Allah blesses them with children, but from those children, there will be those that believe, and there will be some that don't believe.
And from amongst those who don't believe they associate false gods, with Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same things that he's given to them, so Allah has given us our call, an intelligence to think, but we use it or they use it. I don't want to say we because we don't do this as Muslims we stay away from associating any partners with Allah subhana wa Tada. But they use their brains in order to submit to other than Allah. They use the wealth that Allah has blessed them with, in order to spend in ways that are haram or to give to false gods, right? They use their energy, they use their clothing, right? They use their family, they use their cars to go to places to commit shirk.
And so my brothers and sisters, Allah is reminding us, that he is exalted above what they associate with him, right? He is above them. Exalted is He, Allah subhanho wa Taala is greater and better than any of his creation, and what the creation does.
in verse number 191 of sweltered out of Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to say,
usually Khun Emma yes or no cache.
loco on do they associate with Allah, those idols which cannot create anything, right? They make these idols and then these idols can't do anything. Right, they can't create anything. And in fact, they are created themselves. So whether the idol is a statue, or a picture on a wall, or the idol is an animal or the idol is some sort of structure or the the false god is a person or whatever it is, whatever it is, don't they realize that they are a creation themselves. They were created
and Allah created them. And he then says, but in fact they are created,
which cannot help them, or even help themselves. So those idols or those false gods don't help those people, even those who worship other human beings, you cannot benefit from them, because eventually they will die.
Eventually they will die. And those people can't even help themselves. If they were to become sick, they can't cure themselves. If they were to become ill, or have some sort of hardship, some sort of difficulty that they are faced with, their house gets burnt down, they can't stop and say no, don't burn. If Allah wants something to happen, it will happen. So they can't even help themselves.
In verse number 193, and if you those who worship idols, call upon them for guidance, if you call upon your iOS or you call upon your false gods, for some sort of guidance to guide you in life, they can't even respond to you.
It is all the same, whether you call them or remain silent.
It's useless. There's no point in calling upon them.
He then says, those idols you invoke before those idols that you invoke, that you call upon. besides Allah, are created beings like yourselves, so call upon them, and see if they will answer you. If your claims are, in fact, true.
He then says
I know whom. Louis m Shaw nabee her
and levim ad a bit Li Shu wannabe.
UMNO. Whom are you Louie, mostly Ruby.
And low lo whom
is Maroon IV how
poorly do urrutia rock?
confirm murky dooney follow to the
Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says
Do they have feet
to walk upon to walk with? Right Do they have feet that they use to walk with?
Or do they have hands to hold on to things? Right? these idols? They have feet they can't move? There's still right. Can they walk? Nope. They can't walk. They have hands that they can hold on to things no. Or do they have eyes where they can see things? Nope. Or ears to hear with? Nope. say oh prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Sunnah call upon your associate God's and conspire against me without delay.
Right? A challenge. If you claim that these gods can help you and do something, well, here we go Bismillah get them to do something.
Ask them to do something, but they can't. They can't. And that's what Allah Subhana which Allah is showing in these verses. We move on my brothers and sisters.
An important blessing right at the end of sorta two out of verse number 199 200 201 who the lot of Wawa mung bean lo fi, we're early barani je in Allah Subhana which Allah says, Be gracious in join in what is right and turn away from those who act ignorantly advice and guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala when dealing with those who worship idols or those who worship other than Allah subhanho wa Taala Be gracious, enjoying what is right, right, encouraging, encourage them to do what is right, but do that yourself and turn away from those who act ignorantly
Leave it. Don't indulge in it. don't engage in conversation with them. Don't and of course this doesn't mean that we should not give them down. I know what it means is don't waste your time arguing back and forth with people whose hearts have been sealed by
Allah subhanho wa Taala you're not going to open that seal. It was sealed by Allah not by us, we can't open it. And so at times there will be situations where you need to just leave it to Allah subhanho wa Taala Be gracious in joining what is right and turn away from those who act ignorantly. If you are tempted by shape on, then seek refuge with Allah. Surely he is all hearing all knowing. And in verse number 201, indeed when shavon whispers to those who are mindful of Allah, this is all of us right yourselves included. Think of this. Allah says in verse number 201, have sort of a head off.
Indeed, when Satan whispers to those mindful of Allah, are you mindful of Allah? Yes. How do you know that you're mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala right now, the fact that you are fasting,
the fact that you are not eating.
And if today is a day that for some reason whether you're sick or you're traveling or you know, you have a valid Islamic reason, while you're not fasting, that's okay. Just because you're not fasting, you have a valid reason why you cannot fast, you are still mindful of Allah. You are here learning about the Quran, you are wanting to fast and submit to Allah through fasting through song, but you can't for whatever reason. So we are mindful of Allah pay attention. Indeed, one shape on whispers to those who are mindful of Allah.
They remember their Lord.
Then they start to see things clearly. What does this teach us? This teaches us my brothers and sisters. This shape on will whisper to us. Now of course we know it. I'm alone. We're kind of on our own. Right? But shavon will whisper to us shapen will try to distract us and shavon will work harder on those who are closer to a law as opposed to those who are far from Allah. Why how because the people who are closer to Allah subhana wa Adana, he wants to pull them away. And the people who are far from Allah subhana wa tada he doesn't have to do anything. His mission is complete.
People, those who are already submitting to shape on in the ways of shape on and disobeying Allah subpanel Italiana. Why the shape on need to do anything in the first place, don't need to do anything. These people already give into the desires. They do whatever they want. They don't obey Allah subhana wa Tada. We know shavon says we as in he and his helpers, right? Don't need to work on these people. They're already lost. Just leave them alone, let them live their life. But those who are worshipping Allah Subhana way to add those who are mindful those who are fasting those who are conscious of Allah shaitan will work really hard on you really hard on you.
Understand that that is one of the missions of the believer to work hard to ward off the whispers of shavon when they come to us as believers, we will we will face challenges, but remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says either had below or other than EMTALA. When Allah loves or if Allah loves one of his worshipers, his servants he will test them the tests that we face shavon will seek permission from Allah subhanho wa Taala to distract those who are close to him and closest to him. Why prophet or your but Allah His center was close to Allah subhanho wa Taala a worshiper and servant who submitted in every aspect to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that story is a lesson for us
that shape Vaughn will try his best
to pull us away from a law from every angle. This was one of the verses from yesterday that we didn't take from it and now I'm sorry, then Allah Subhana. Allah says
that shavonne will come from the front and from the back end from the right and from the left, and will try to distract the believers from the remembrance of Allah. Don't give in because in verse number 201, Allah says indeed shade on whispers to those mindful of Allah.
They remember their Lord. So he tries but they remember a law.
