So it's Friday, April 23 2021. And it is the 10th day sorry, the 11th day of Melbourne 1442 1/3 of the month is gone. And we've entered into the second

Okay, so that's just something to keep in mind in a long data.

00:01:14--> 00:01:43

Today we're going to be going through the 11th Jews of the Quran the 11th see bada and we continue from Surah tober and then we will carry on into sorta Eunice and shot a lot of tag. Let's look at verse number 100 of surah Toba Allah subhanho wa Taala says here, Aruba will be lucky Mina Shea banyuwangi team was so be a boon and word moon Amina Mohammed god you know what?

Allah subhanho Wa Alaikum Salam are going to lie or workout and for all those that are giving senem or I need consent and welcome to lie over cattle.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

Verse number 11 sorry 100 of surah Toba

00:02:30--> 00:02:41

in the 11th Joseph Quran Allah subhana wa Jalla shows his pleasant His pleasure to the mohajir one. Okay, he shows his pleasure to the mohajir one and the unsought. Okay.

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

Man is calling so maybe give him a call.

00:02:50--> 00:02:58

Allah shows pleasure to the mohajir on any unsought Yes, I'm in my drum. Fans always next to me wherever you go, the family's there.

00:02:59--> 00:03:08

No call him from my phone I'm using so I'm using my phone live stream I tell my wife to make a phone call to some he's asking me if she should use phone or my phone. Yeah.

00:03:16--> 00:03:48

So Allah shows His pleasure to the mahadji rune and to the unsought for helping the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he says was said the Kunal Walloon amin Al mohajir, in our unsolved while living in a two bedroom BSN. As for the foremost the subequal, and those that came first those that were first at doing something, right, as for the foremost, the first of the immigrants and the helpers, the Mullah gentlemen and the unsought and those who follow them in goodness, those who come after them in goodness, are the Allahu

00:03:50--> 00:04:13

Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with him. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with him. And he has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow to stay there forever and ever. That is the ultimate triumph. Why is this important for us, my brothers and sisters, we as believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

we as believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala Of course, we show a lot of respect towards this habit of the longer I'm home. And, you know, we understand the migration, the Higgs of that took place from Mecca to Medina, and the sacrifice that it took from those who were the early Muslims who entered into Islam in the early stages, who submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who left their ways who left all of the nonsense that they were upon. And when I say nonsense, I mean, the sheer look that they may have been upon, you know, all of the the evil that the people were committing at the time, and they change themselves for the good

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

came to Allah subhanho wa to Allah. And so not only do we honor them and respect them, but we strive hard to take from their example. We may not be at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order to be considered mohajir own or unsought. But we are living at a time where, and even at a place, right, we're living your time and at a place where Allah subhana wa tada has given us the ability to take initiative in maybe a dour project, or some sort of Islamic organization, or to be, you know, part of boards or management's of massages, to take initiative in establishing things that our community will need, and so on and so forth. And that is really the lesson that

00:05:50--> 00:06:29

we're getting from this verse, the sabich wound a wound, I mean, and will hygena will unsought those that were first to help out the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that came first to assist him in whether it's the phase of mcca the migration or even the establishing establishment there in Medina. The lesson we get is that we should be from amongst the people that don't just wait for something to happen. Be proactive, take initiative, go and get it. Do what needs to be done. Be the Muslim that will walk the walk and talk the talk as check Allah say it always says it isn't Canada right? Yo says Muslims we walk the

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

walk the walk, and talk the talk. Alright.

00:06:35--> 00:07:05

So we need to be people that are living the summit of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But taking chances, not chances and things that are how long but taking chances doing something that may be slightly different than the norm. I'll give you a simple example where I'm not expecting us as a Muslim oma to shoot for the stars. What I mean is take small steps in doing what you feel is right according to this end, the Quran

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

when we were small, growing up in Montreal here in Canada,

00:07:11--> 00:07:50

our massage had most of them did not have an Imam. Okay, there was no ma'am that was learned, right? Someone who was well versed in Islam, someone who was established in their Deen, you know, many of our massage did not have that. And slowly as we grew older, you know, demands trickled in from different countries. from Egypt, from Morocco, from Algeria, from Tunisia, from Bangladesh, from Pakistan, Pakistan from India, right from various different countries on Earth, some from Ghana, from, from Pamela were from

00:07:52--> 00:08:06

I believe, that's pretty much it, as I can remember from Sudan, right from Sudan, hamdulillah. from Ethiopia, right, some of these countries, trickled their imams our way, or even started to trickle into Canada.

00:08:08--> 00:08:51

But we saw in those early stages that the Muslims were already doing certain things or practicing certain practices. And some of those amens that came from other countries, they knew that some of these practices were not encouraged within Islam. But through their wisdom, they knew that if they were to make drastic changes, and to take, you know, drastic measures into their hands and change things so quickly, the Muslims would probably feel Oh, you know what, this person is not the right mm for our Masjid. So slowly and steadily, right, they initiated change. That's in some massage it in other massages, the complete opposite happened, people would come and they would say, Oh, you

00:08:51--> 00:09:27

know, in our country, this is what we do. And so we would start to adopt those things. And it took, it took strength, it took courage for many Muslims, who were, let's say, born and raised over here to say, no, it's okay for us as Muslims living here in Canada, you know, to dress a certain way that is not from a specific country back home, or it's okay for us to be Muslims over here, and to speak English with one another. We don't have to learn the Urdu language in order to learn Islam. And I remember this was a challenge that I faced when I was young.

00:09:29--> 00:09:46

And went to study in a mother of sir. And in order for me to study to see it of the Quran, I would have to learn how to do and I always felt that that was strange. Like why do I have to learn the Urdu language in order to learn the Quran which was revealed in Arabic?

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

Now, some might say, because the teacher speaks,

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

but that wasn't really the case. It was because, first of all, many of the books that were being used in Canada

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

To teach Islam had been imported, there were not many that were translated in English at the time. And so they were using the ODU, or Arabic books in order to teach Islam. And so you couldn't really learn Islam in English. If you wanted to go in depth, you'd have to learn the Urdu language. Now, of course, being someone who doesn't speak fluent Urdu, I do understand it, you know, a decent amount of it. But it was a frustration of mine where I had to learn another language in order to understand the core and revealed in a different language.

00:10:36--> 00:10:47

And this was where it just didn't sit well with me. And I thought, Okay, I'm going to go and I'm going to learn Arabic, because Arabic sometimes with a court and so I need to learn Arabic or in the Quran, or I'm just not going to learn, you know,

00:10:48--> 00:11:07

sido the Quran in Urdu in another language, so I'm not going to learn another language in order to learn that language that makes any sense. So we have to take these steps in order to change things, what we happen, what we saw happening, and I'm thankful to those who made this change happen. It I was part of it at all, I'm not taking any credit here.

00:11:09--> 00:11:41

What we saw happening is now you have these modalities, these download URL, these schools that are teaching his stem, in the language of the people in the land that we live in hamdulillah hamdulillah. Right. That doesn't mean that we are not teaching the students Arabic, because Arabic is the language of the Quran. But you don't need to learn another language. I remember a classmate of mine, originally from Morocco, he learned what to do. He's fluent in Urdu. So he's fluent in English, fluent in Arabic, fluent in

00:11:43--> 00:12:23

French, so English, French, Arabic, and what to do, because he was doing his Ireland course. And he had to learn how to do in order to learn to see difficult and from the teacher that was teaching him in Urdu, even though he's fluent in Arabic. So it didn't make sense, right? And hamdulillah some steps were made in a certain direction to say, Hey, we live in Canada, and the language of the people over here is English. We need to teach us them to them in the language that they speak and we will teach them Arabic as well, because Arabic is an important match. That was not an easy stage for many of the Imams who made that change happen. It was very difficult. And they they they they

00:12:23--> 00:12:39

received a lot of backlash, but look at the benefit. Look at the benefit. Look what Allah subhanaw taala is saying about the mohajir, one and the unsought. The benefit is great, right those who follow them in goodness, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with him.

00:12:40--> 00:13:14

And the loss of pan with Allah has prepared Gardens under which rivers flow now this is the moho genome and the unsolved. So Allah is showing us that there's a great reward an amazing reward for those who took initiative to establish something that was needed in the Muslim ummah. And Al Hamdulillah. We do that in sha Allah, Allah without a doubt Allah Subhana Allah will bless us with rewards as well that are befitting to the sacrifices that are made. Right? They will receive rewards that's a loss of what to add, you know, blesses them with.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

Move on to verse number 103 and 104 Allah subhana wa tada now touches upon zeca

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

who mean I'm worthy inside the arclight

00:13:29--> 00:13:50

to Paul hero what was that key him be how was Sunday I lay him in attack so can only level one more who sent me or on any of us upon way to add it tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam take from their wealth or profit,

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

charity to purify and bless them

00:13:56--> 00:14:22

and pray for them. Sure the your prayer is a source of comfort for them. And Allah is all hearing, all knowing. So the command from Allah subhana wa tada to take from the wealth of the Muslims, what what do we take from them 2.5% of savings that reaches a minimum threshold that's been accumulated for a minimum of one year, or accumulated for one year.

00:14:24--> 00:14:24

That's it.

00:14:26--> 00:14:47

It's simple, it's easy, but who is it given to? It's given to those that are neat, but look at what Allah Subhana Allah says, is being given to the person who gives it. Allah says take from their wealth charity to purify and bless them to by hero whom what is the key him to purify them and to bless them? Right?

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

My brothers and sisters when we give sadaqa when we give and I'm not doing a fundraising pitch, I did that at Juma. Right I'm not doing that. Now even though my boxes right here. I

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

had to bring one home for the camera. But this is the one that we use as well. We have one here and one downstairs, right? But Subhanallah that's not the purpose, the purpose is to learn the importance of giving sadaqa it purifies ourselves, when we give to others. First of all, we feel good that Allah has put us in a position that we're able to actually share some of our wealth, even if it's a little. So none of us should ever feel that

00:15:27--> 00:15:45

I am incapable of giving sadaqa I am not able to share any of my wealth, because sadaqa in Islam is not only in money, but here's specifically Allah subhanaw taala Yes, is referring to the wealth that needs to be given

00:15:47--> 00:16:17

from our earnings, right. And so that's important to point out. And then Hamdulillah, when we give this, it removes, you know, some of the bad feelings that we have within us, some of us feel hatred, some of us feel anxiety, depression, we feel stuck and stressed, that is removed, why Allah Subhana Allah says to the hero, what was the key him you give to those who are in need, and I will share this with you like I share it with you all the time.

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

You'll notice if you go to my Instagram, and I think I posted it on Facebook as well, if I haven't, I still have to do that.

00:16:33--> 00:16:56

The importance of not just giving wealth to help others, but to volunteer, and to be a part of the teams that help others. Now I know that it's COVID time, code time, and we're able to, you know, travel and do things like we normally would, but one of the reasons why I like helping charity, right?

00:16:57--> 00:17:27

Even it can be a relief, right is to be able to be there on the ground to help other people in whatever country it is. And I remember, you know, doing this myself, but I encourage others, you'll notice how there's all there should always be an option for us to assist the teams that are going on the ground, to give that wealth out to the families to the children to those who are in need.

00:17:28--> 00:18:08

So if you don't find that there, you should look at and you should reach out to those organizations that are assisting people that are in need, and ask them and say hey, I would like to be a part of this help. How can I do it, I'll fund my own trip, I'll fund my own, you know, way down to wherever it is that the the wealth is being given even if it's locally Alhamdulillah. But I want to be a part of this, I want to help out in some way shape or form. That's important. Because what it does is it not only makes you feel satisfied with giving your circle your wealth, your Zakah to those organizations because you're seeing where it's going. You also feel like you need to give more

00:18:09--> 00:18:23

because you actually are there you're seeing the people that are receiving it and you want to do more for them. You feel like a bag of rice is not enough for you. I have a bag of rice in my fridge or sorry not in my fridge but in my cupboard.

00:18:24--> 00:19:05

But I have more in my cupboard and you are deserving of more as well. I have lots of stuff in my fridge. You are deserving of that as well. Your human being just like me, and so we want to naturally give more to those who are in need. And that's important for us to take part in my brothers and sisters. Then Allah subhana wa tada says surely your prayer is a source of comfort for them. So make dua for those who you are giving to but those who you are taking from as well. Remember the door here is being mentioned towards those who are giving their wealth in zeca so make it too hard for them. Male Wasim hanway to accept from your male boss of hanway to Hana allow you

00:19:05--> 00:19:27

increase you right increase you in wealth and Allah Subhana Allah allow you to help more and more people may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow you to be a means of spreading and goodness and higher on this earth. Man last how do we to Hello grant you a higher level of paradise. Right Jen that will fill those should make dua hell for the people who give in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

Why? Because your prayer Oh prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and by default the Muslims who are making behalf for others is a source of comfort for them. When people give, what are they feeling? They're feeling a something's missing my pocket gave that wealth that is a cat is gone or they you know, deduct it from their bank account, and they pay it off your notice it there that it's missing. And so you might feel something, you need to feel comforted and that's what duha is for. Right?

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

Then Allah Subhana, Allah says,

00:20:05--> 00:20:39

Do they not know that Allah alone accepts the repentance of his servants and receives their charity, and that Allah alone is the acceptor of repentance, Most Merciful. So when we give a charity, especially the zecca that we give, don't think in your mind that you are giving it solely to those that are in need. Think that you are giving this to Allah, for the sake of Allah, and Allah will have it used for whoever is in need.

00:20:40--> 00:20:57

Because everything happens with the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So whoever Allah wants to receive that wealth, it will go to you channel your wealth in the right direction, and Allah will make it spread out to wherever it needs to go. We move on in sha Allah to add, let's go to verse number 111.

00:21:00--> 00:21:05

In law has total meaning, meaning,

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

full seven will

00:21:09--> 00:21:09

be

00:21:11--> 00:21:38

more aegeon Legion, Allah subhanho wa Taala that says at the beginning of this verse, Allah has indeed purchased from the believers. Allah bought something from us. Yes, Allah buys something from us. What does he buy from us? Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers, their lives and wealth, in exchange for paradise.

00:21:39--> 00:22:20

So the wealth we have doesn't belong to us to begin with, we know that it's a gift from Allah, it's given to us. Allah gives it to us to us as a provision on earth. And we give some of it back to Allah, in exchange for what paradise and we live this life, the pain that we feel, the struggle that we're feeling throughout, and I'm Yvonne, you know, some kind of why you see me with the blue light glasses on my eyes are burning me and I don't know why they're burning me. But the pain that we feel, right, the screen that we feel in our bodies, especially throughout the month of Ramadan, those that are tired and exhausted, you know, Thirsty, thirsty for water so kind of like earlier

00:22:20--> 00:22:36

today a live stream then I went to the masjid did the hook both for the for the management and I was just like, I started this hold on my voice was like in deep mode. Not gonna make it fancy whatsoever for you guys just gonna recite right? It was just like, somehow I needed some water. Right?

00:22:38--> 00:23:29

You take an hour or two after that you rest and you feel much better. Allah subhana wa Taala replenishes us naturally, but from our energy from our wealth from our time, from our strength from our eyes, our ears, our nose, our mouth, our hands and limbs. Everything that we put into this life we put into for the sake of Allah and in return, Allah says in the law hashtag Amina me Nina and foster home. Werner home, the anala hohman Jana, that their reward their payment, the exchange is an exchange of paradise. So yes, as believers we know Al Hamdulillah paradise has been written for us, right. But when that's the question, I need to make sure that on the Day of Judgment, I go directly

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

to paradise, and I don't stop somewhere else. I don't make any pit stops. We can't afford a pit stop.

00:23:37--> 00:24:00

On the day of judgment, we need to go straight to paradise. And this is why as believers I like to remind us of two things. First of all, don't feel entitled. Don't walk around boastful. Allah Subhana Allah says we'll see. You know, when the verses come, that the Muslim walks on this earth very humbly with humility.

00:24:01--> 00:24:30

We do not walk with arrogance. Why because we as believers still there is no guarantee that we will reach paradise. Why? I don't know what the last minute of my life will be like. I don't know if I will still have a demon within me. Well areas Avila May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect and save us all. And we recite the DA Ha. What is the dua verse number eight of sorta sorta la Milan.

00:24:33--> 00:24:33

Who remembers?

00:24:37--> 00:24:42

Hmm, that was your homework. That was your homework last week.

00:24:44--> 00:24:52

Who remembers? Let's see if someone writes it even if they transliterate it in English. And don't check what it is try to remember off your memory.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

Let's see if anyone is able to do that. So the first thing was don't feel entitled. Right. That Oh,

00:25:00--> 00:25:24

We're believers, we're going to paradise. So I don't need to do anything. All I need to do is believe no. You need to believe you need to worship hard. Right? No pain, no gain, no pain, no gain. We have to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah day and night, every single thing, even being on our phones right now or being on the screen, whether on YouTube or Facebook or, or Twitter or wherever you are.

00:25:25--> 00:25:53

Is that an act of very bad? Or are you doing it to please someone else? Are you doing it to show to your parents that you're doing this, but you really don't want to? Are you trying to make it seem like you're religious or not, of course, that hamdulillah we have good thoughts of everyone and we assume that if you're here, you're here because you really want to and you're seeking that favor. You're looking for that goodness, we wouldn't spend this time in in this way. If we wanted to do something else, right.

00:26:00--> 00:26:06

Okay, re as high as the last part of the ayat, what about the first part? hamdulillah

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

What about the first part of the verse?

00:26:11--> 00:26:23

So I'll mention it. Oh, Ben, led to Zoo kulu bana badger in Daytona. Wahab Elena mi ledoux Karishma in

00:26:24--> 00:26:24

total.

00:26:26--> 00:26:40

We make this dua to Allah as well as young callable. kulu. Sub bit calbee Allah Deena right. Yeah, we'll call liberal kurobe Allah subhanaw taala has the power to flip the hearts right to flip the hearts.

00:26:43--> 00:27:22

So we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla the one who's in control of our heart. Yeah, we'll call liberal kulu said bit Columbia Allah de like, make my heart firm upon your deen that I never sway away from it. We never divert away from Islam, we always turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in submission, right? So here Allah subhana wa tada showing us that we are selling our wealth and our soul as in our life. Everything we do, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala to earn Jenna, why Jenna? Well, why not? Why not?

00:27:23--> 00:27:27

Verse number 113, of Sugata Toba.

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

Here we see a prohibition

00:27:32--> 00:27:37

prohibition, it is not permitted for the believers.

00:27:39--> 00:27:46

It is not permitted for the believers to seek forgiveness for the machete comb.

00:27:48--> 00:27:54

It's not permitted forgiveness as in, in the hereafter after they've died. Right.

00:27:55--> 00:28:18

And we should always be making dua for guidance, guidance for ourselves and guidance for those that are around us. Now, for many of you, this might not seem like something that's important. But for those few amongst us, who have family members and relatives who are not Muslim,

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

when a non Muslim relative passes away,

00:28:25--> 00:28:30

it really makes you think, especially if they were your parents, it makes you think,

00:28:32--> 00:28:37

did I fulfill my responsibility? Have I conveyed the message?

00:28:39--> 00:28:53

Because someone who openly leads this world as a non believer, as Muslims, as known, we are not permitted islamically to make do or how to ask Allah to forgive them.

00:28:54--> 00:29:20

They left this world as is. And Allah subhana wa tada says, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in verse number 113. It is not proper for the Prophet and the believers to seek forgiveness for the polytheists even if they were close relatives, after it has become clear to the believers that they are bound for

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

at jakeem, for the hellfire. So my brothers and sisters, for those of us who

00:29:30--> 00:29:47

don't have Muslim family members and relatives, when you know a Muslim, who's lost a family member who is not Muslim, have a little bit of understanding that it's not easy for them. I know.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

We have community members who sometimes when I'm giving a hook, but I could see the emotion in their eyes. I could see the emotion in their eyes, right. It's written on their face.

00:30:00--> 00:30:25

They feel sad. They wish for their spouse, they wish for their children, they wish for their parents, they wish for their relatives, to be Muslim to be believers. Why not because they want anything from them in this life, but they want goodness for them in the hereafter. They want to see them from the people of paradise. We just finished learning the verse that Allah subhanaw taala had a buys from the believers in exchange for their wealth and their life.

00:30:26--> 00:30:38

paradise, he gives them paradise, and we want for all of our relatives paradise. So my brothers and sisters, it's not permissible for us to do that.

00:30:39--> 00:30:47

To make into our heart to have us seeking forgiveness, for those who left this world that we're not upon Islam,

00:30:50--> 00:31:22

Allah Subhana Allah guide them and throughout their lives and throughout the lives of our family and relatives. We should constantly be asking Allah subhanaw taala to guide them right along Medina Wahid DB now which I have never said that eliminate Italia, right to make dua to Allah Subhana Allah to guide us and to make us from amongst those who are guided and can help others to be guided right the reason for others to be guided to Islam. That's important for us to ask Allah subhana wa tada for.

00:31:24--> 00:31:42

Alright, let's move to Surah Yunus. Okay, let's move to solar units. The next surah is the surah titled Surah unice after the Prophet of Allah Subhana whatever Allah who was swallowed by a whale.

00:31:43--> 00:31:49

And interestingly enough, I did some research on this last year when I was teaching some of our youth in the masjid.

00:31:51--> 00:31:57

There have been reports of people other than prophet Yunus it has said em who have been swallowed by the whales.

00:31:59--> 00:32:38

Would you just wouldn't think is is, is the case. Right? Usually when you tell the story of Prophet Yunus children are like, Yeah, but that's not true. No, it is true, right? It is true. Prophet Yunus it his time was swallowed by a whale. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, who gives us life from a droplet of fluid can make a profit of his remains safe in the belly of a whale, before he is, you know, spat out or released from that whale and placed back on Earth. Allah is able and capable of doing anything. So let's look at verse number 24 of soda Yunus.

00:32:40--> 00:32:50

This is a parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala shares with us about this life. He says in method we hire dunia came

00:32:53--> 00:32:53

in

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

roominess

00:33:00--> 00:33:03

tonopah been battle only me

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

someone who had

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

either

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

had

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

either

00:33:18--> 00:33:24

a father to have and buzu was one

00:33:27--> 00:33:28

call the

00:33:31--> 00:33:32

oven.

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

Badger

00:33:47--> 00:33:57

has leaned in and will never be Cara Lee can fall seen wouldn't it? Yeah taenia Kumi

00:34:00--> 00:34:03

Allah Subhana Allah says in verse number 24 of surah Yunus.

00:34:06--> 00:34:09

The life of this world is just like rain

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

that we send down from the sky,

00:34:14--> 00:34:30

producing a mixture of plants producing a mixture of plants, which humans and animals consume. So the world that we live in this life is like the world that Allah subhanho wa Taala has just sent rain to

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

and it falls from the sky.

00:34:34--> 00:34:39

And from that rain, the water, we see produce that grows from the ground,

00:34:41--> 00:35:00

a mixture of plants for humans and animals to consume. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, just as the earth looks its best, right? That winter ends the spring comes around. You have all the plants they grow the summer everything

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

Looking nice. We're enjoying the produce. We're eating the corn. Corn. We're making fries from the potatoes. We're enjoying our chips, right? We're going into food again. Right? all this food Jenga Milan was talking about food. Allah knows how much we love food. He's telling us about the food, right? And the animals they consume this food as well. What does Allah Subhana Allah say about that? He says, then just as the earth looks its best.

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

Just as the earth looks its best,

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

perfectly beautified

00:35:34--> 00:35:39

and its people think they have full control over it.

00:35:40--> 00:35:45

There comes to it a command by night, or by day.

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

Just like that.

00:35:50--> 00:36:35

So we mow it down as if it never flourished yesterday, as though it was never filled with fruits and vegetables and produce for humans and animals to consume. This is how we make the science clear for people who reflect Think about it. Our brothers and sisters think about the winter when it's freezing cold out and everything is frozen. The grasses covered and it looks like it's dead. And the trees look like they're dead. There's no leaves on them. They're just bare, right? Of course not the coniferous trees, right? Those evergreen trees, they always will remain nice and beautiful and green. But all of the other trees. What's the one of the other kinds of trees called coniferous and

00:36:37--> 00:36:44

deciduous? Are you sure? I'm testing my family here? Maybe? question on the on quest quiz.

00:36:46--> 00:37:30

Right? Allah Subhana Allah data makes all of the land outside look bare and frozen, and dead. as though nothing can grow from this ground. The earth is so solid, even tractors that are trying to dig through the ground in the winter, when we need to bury a body, it's difficult to break through the ground. It's frozen solid. But Allah subhanho wa Taala brings about the spring once again, and then the summer. And then when everything looks like it's going fine. All of a sudden, very drastically, it changes the leaves change colors, everything falls, and everything goes back to a state or a condition where it doesn't bloom.

00:37:31--> 00:37:32

And it's frozen once again.

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

My friend, Chef Suraj, my old roommate in Medina.

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

He sent me a picture of his, his missoura his his garden, his you know, land that he has

00:37:48--> 00:38:36

in Indonesia. And in July or August, it was filled with it was so green. I was like Subhanallah Look how lush it is over there. I didn't think it would be that way. And then in the middle of the winter, he sent me a picture and it was just bare land desert. And I was like, yeah, Chef, is this the same land that you showed me in the picture, he says the same lens, same place, same picture that I took was was in this area. But now it's just bear. There's nothing that you would never even imagine that there were plants growing there, and shrubs and bushes and trees. Subhan Allah. That's an example of this life, how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings, you know from nothing, he brings our

00:38:36--> 00:39:05

lives. And we have homes, and we have cars, and we have children, and we have health, and we have time and we have energy and we have happiness, and we have joy and we have stress and we have depression, but we have masajid and we have shopping malls, and we have grocery stores and we have nice clothing and we have family and we have relatives and we have travel and we have you know, hiking and time outside and bicycles and enjoyment and sports. And then Allah takes it all the way.

00:39:07--> 00:39:12

takes it all the way. And we return to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a condition

00:39:13--> 00:39:35

that we know of. But we don't imagine that it will come to us. We don't imagine that we will return to that condition. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. I mean, and grant a strength and ease throughout our lives, no matter what stage of our life we are transitioning through. And

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

let's move on and shuffle over to Anna.

00:39:43--> 00:39:55

You know what in the next verse is very interesting in verse number 25 of surah Yunus right after that verse, Allah subhana wa tada says, Well, maglia do. Oh, ina de Sena.

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

We're done.

00:40:00--> 00:40:00

money.

00:40:03--> 00:40:04

No sleep at all, please

00:40:05--> 00:40:53

stop me. After a loss of hanway Tana mentions, you know the parable of life that we will live and we will grow and we will be strong and everything will be there. And then I'm like that he'll take it all the way. Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah mentions that he invites all of us to data center him, well along the route in a data center. What is that a center, the home of peace, the eternal abode of joy and happiness and luxury, luxury upon luxury things we can't even imagine. We get happy with little bling blings of this world somehow Allah, imagine how it will be in Jenna, how awesome things will be how amazing it will be in Paradise, and it will last forever. When you talk about food.

00:40:54--> 00:41:45

When you talk about food, and you imagine the food of its body, how beautiful it tastes in the mouth of the person who is fasting. Wait until we reach paradise, and we can eat and enjoy taste and feeling of joy with that food even far beyond what we feel in this dunya and we will enjoy that for hundreds of years eating the same thing over and over if that's what we want to eat right handed Allah. May Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for us. He says way ahead de Manya show enough writing muster theme and guides whoever he wills to the straight path. He guides whoever he wills to the straight path. So Allah is inviting us to paradise Hey, this is the way it's a simple path. This

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

way. It's nice and straight and easy you can get there. You just need to try a little bit.

00:41:53--> 00:42:00

And insha Allah tada with the help of Allah, we will reach those levels of Paradise that we always dreamed for.

00:42:03--> 00:42:06

Verse number 2526 27.

00:42:08--> 00:42:59

Sorry, 3536 37 Allah subhana wa Taala shows us a couple of lessons here ask them oh Prophet, Can any of your associate Gods what they worship other than Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Can any of those false gods guide to the truth? Right, say, only Allah guides to the truth? Who then is more worthy to be followed? The one who guides to the truth or those who cannot find the way unless guided? What is the matter with you? How do you judge? You know what some kind of law, the truth is important. We always need to speak the truth. And we always need to be truthful. The believer is one who follows the example of a saw the equal I mean, the truthful, the trustworthy.

00:43:00--> 00:43:13

Right? aside the call amin, Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, the Quraysh knew that despite them not believing in his message that he was conveying

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

despite that,

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

he was still a trustworthy, truthful person, some longer headachy lesson.

00:43:24--> 00:43:46

That in itself is an example of how the believer is supposed to be. You tell the truth, and you speak the truth. If people are not happy with it, well, you're speaking the truth. Now, of course, there are certain limitations that you work with, right? You're not going to walk up to someone and say, I think that you look to do today and you describe them.

00:43:47--> 00:44:02

Well, we're supposed to be respectful as well, we're supposed to be not only honest, but respectful towards others. We're not supposed to insult others. So you might think something of someone else. But you don't have the right to express that.

00:44:03--> 00:44:05

You don't have the right to express it.

00:44:06--> 00:44:22

And as much as we live at a time where countries tried to say no, you have the freedom of speech, we don't have this freedom of speech. It doesn't exist. And don't get me started on this topic. It's 802. And we won't finish on time if I start that topic, so we'll leave it as it is in a lot of data. Okay.

00:44:24--> 00:44:30

Let's look at verse number 6263 and 64 inshallah, we'll end with these three verses.

00:44:31--> 00:44:41

Allah Subhana. Allah tells us who the friends of Allah really are those who are close to Allah as in verse number 62 of surah Yunus

00:44:44--> 00:44:45

in

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

Allah He lako Whoa, 498

00:45:15--> 00:46:07

the Nico what he felt was a lovely team. Verse number 6263 64 of sorta Eunice read it on your own insha Allah and I'll explain it okay but but remember these verses in fact memorize it especially verse number 62 I know in Olia Allah, love hoefflin it in one zone. There will certainly be no fear for the close servants of Allah, nor will they grieve. Those who are loss of handle to handle loves the most. There's no fear within them. They're not scared to portray their Islam openly outwardly publicly. They're not scared to say I'm a Muslim, they're not scared to dress in a modest fashion to show the signs of Islam and amen and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam whether

00:46:07--> 00:46:55

the hijab or anything else, they're not scared, there's no fear Allah in Olia Allah, lawyer hole for now lay him no fear. Will they ever fear and face, one at home? Yeah zone, nor will they grieve? Who are these people and living amen? What can we attack on Allah Subhana Allah says they are those who are faithful and are mindful of him. They are faithful and mindful of him, be connected to Allah always. And you will see that the fears that we have in our lives will leave the sadness that we feel within us will leave the anxiety and the depression in our minds will leave. And I know my brothers and sisters, we talk about this all the time throughout the last few years. How Yes,

00:46:55--> 00:47:07

depression, anxiety, stress, you may need some medical attention, no doubt and we don't deny that islamically we say that yes, if a person needs medical attention, they should and they must go and get that medical attention.

00:47:09--> 00:47:57

But to prevent ourselves from being in a position where we need that medical health is important, or that medical, you know intervention, we should seek the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala in ourselves by being happy in submitting to a law and living airman. Well, can we at the bone level mole Bushra? Allah Subhana Allah says for them is good news in this worldly life and in the Hereafter. There is no change in the promise of a law that is truly the ultimate triumph. We will not fear living through this life, we will not fear death, and leaving this life, we will not fear the time of the grave. We will not fear standing before Allah, we will not fear you know the times

00:47:57--> 00:48:41

in our lives that we experienced because we know that if we do what Allah Subhana Allah wants from us, we will get what Allah has promised for us. So our homework for today is to memorize verse number 62. And hopefully, if you can 63 as well. And if you are from those who seek the bonus rewards than 64 ela in the only online level for anything, whatever is going on, is important for us to know of ourselves as human beings. What Allah subhanho wa Taala will gift us with that's all the time that we have for today. Does Aqua malachite ontological level fee comm We ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept from every single one of us, this is the last few minutes as last what 10 minutes or
