00:00:24 --> 00:00:48

I hope that everyone is doing well and ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to accept from every single one of us throughout this month of Ramadan. ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless you with the best of this life in the best of the Hereafter, and ask a lesson how do we add it to protect every single one of you and your family members, myself and my family members from COVID-19 or any sort of sickness or illness? That is difficult in the heart to bear.

00:00:51 --> 00:00:52

Today is

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

today is Saturday,

00:00:58 --> 00:01:33

April 24 2021. And it is the 12th day of Melbourne 12th day of Ramadan. So Pamela, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make it easy for us throughout the rest of the month of Ramadan, and to accept from us from what has already passed. We are unsolder who would in the 12 pages of the Quran, surah who would and there's a number of different prophets that Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us about throughout this surah so we'll touch upon, you know a little bit of each of their lives here and there.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:49

We also will transition into surah Yusuf in sha Allah Allah, another one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala and a beautiful story that we sadly do not have time to spend with the entire sorta

00:01:50 --> 00:01:59

regardless, so we'll start with verse number 29 of surah Hoot Allah subhanho wa Taala says Ruby Lahaina shaytani r rajim. Way up Amina

00:02:02 --> 00:02:03

Kumar and he man

00:02:05 --> 00:02:06

00:02:07 --> 00:02:10

more on

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

body the lady

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

in in

00:02:18 --> 00:02:22

Abu Dhabi more keen knee accom

00:02:28 --> 00:02:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, there are geese in the background from that Illa and there's a printer that keeps turning on and off as well. That's irritating me.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:43

So, Allah Subhana Allah data here in verse number 29 of surah Hoot

00:02:44 --> 00:02:54

mentions how he says to his people, Jaco Nila, Luca Malema all my people, I do not

00:02:58 --> 00:03:26

I do not ask you for payment for this message. Right? Every single one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala did not ask their people for any sort of payment for the message that they conveyed. So he says all my people, I do not ask you for a payment for this message. My reward is only from Allah and I will never dismiss the believers, for they will surely meet their Lord, but I can see that you are people acting ignorantly. So here.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:36

Allah subhanho data is showing us in Surah Hood This is no Halle Hassan the story of no Halle his center, where Camila as Akuma Allah he last

00:03:37 --> 00:03:41

Akuma Allah Hema Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala and it

00:03:42 --> 00:04:05

expresses how the prophets and you'll see this trend when you read through the Quran, right? The prophets usually tell their people, I'm not asking you for any wealth. I'm not asking you for any payment. I'm not asking you for anything in return. Now, this is a very interesting aspect of our Deen because the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:06 --> 00:04:46

they did not want anything in return for the people who had embraced Islam, or for conveying the message or anything of that sort. And a lot of them had their own professions. So for example, we see that some of the prophets of Allah subhana wa tada were carpenters, some were shepherds, right. And the lesson that we learned from Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being a business person, but also one that was well versed as a shepherd, is that you are able to look after your animals, you're able to understand their feelings, you understand the responsibility of looking after them and feeding them and making sure that they have all that they need. And there are so this

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

is an indication of how there are certain professions, right certain professions that we have within our lives that will be helpful to us in order to understand human beings or to understand this world and the life that we live in.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:02

So Allah subhana wa tada chose prophets,

00:05:04 --> 00:05:43

to have certain professions and to do certain things, and the wealth that they gained was not wealth that they earned from spreading the message. And I know nowadays in 2021, we look at, you know, ie memes or Islamic scholars, and we say how come they receive a salary for doing the job that they do, when the prophets and the messengers of Allah Subhana, Allah always would say that they are not asking for anything in return islamically We are not allowed to ask for something in return as well. For example, what I mean by this, and I'll be very specific, if you're to teach someone the Quran, and we learned this in our fifth class, right, our essential fifth class, if you're teaching someone

00:05:43 --> 00:05:47

Quran, you are not allowed to receive

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

ownership on a gene

00:05:54 --> 00:06:30

chiffons working on the making Miyan a lot, you're not allowed to receive a payment for the amounts of the Quran that you teach to others. For example, if you say I'm going to teach you five Ayat of the Quran every single day, and for five verses, you will pay me $5 and if I teach you only four verses, then you will pay me $4 and if I teach you 10 verses, you will pay me $10. So you're not allowed to put a price on the actual Quran that is being taught or shared with someone else. But what you are allowed to do from an Islamic perspective, what we are allowed to do is

00:06:32 --> 00:07:11

to charge for your time to charge for your energy to charge for your, your skill set, right. So there are other things that we can charge for. But when someone says, I will come in, I will do a lecture of X amount of you know, minutes, and I will convey this and that and you put too much of a structure to it. This is where you start to get into a gray area and loss of habitat to protect us all and make it easy for us to continue to learn and to teach this theme. And so I wanted to just touch upon this because the prophets of Allah subhana wa tada they themselves would receive wealth, for example, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam would receive wealth to look after himself and his family

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

and the

00:07:14 --> 00:07:29

follow up. Right, the Khalifa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abubakar, the Allah and the ameerul momineen. Right, the the leaders that came after Abu Bakar, I'm earthman and Ali are the Allahu anhu.

00:07:30 --> 00:08:10

They themselves would, would feel bad to receive something. As the person who was put in a position of authority and leadership, they would feel bad to receive something for looking after the affairs of the oma, however islamically they were permitted to do so and permitted to take from it. So there are certain times that we can receive. What we're not allowed to do is to say, if you take this message, then you have to pay me a certain amount. Right? That's where it's not permissible. And this is what the prophets were saying is that I am not conveying this message to you because you're paying me I'm not conveying this message to you because there's some sort of monetary benefit for

00:08:10 --> 00:08:13

me, I'm giving you this message because it's my responsibility.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:15

And it is the

00:08:16 --> 00:08:19

it is the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala that I do so.

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

Let's move on in sha Allah because of a lot that we're going to take.

00:08:27 --> 00:08:35

Then in verse number 3038, why is narrow, full Kava cool? Early Hema

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38


00:08:41 --> 00:08:43

wakulla Murali Hema

00:08:45 --> 00:09:33

Kony he is a woman. So he began to build the ark right prophet know how to his son and began to build the ark. And whenever some of the chiefs of the people passed by, they mocked him. They used to make fun of new alayhis salam. He said, If you laugh at us, we will soon laugh at you in the same or similar manner. Okay, so no Haley has sent him when he's building this art. One of the reasons why they used to mock him is because normally his son was not a nut job. He was not someone who knew carpentry, yet now he's cutting down trees, right? He's chiseling the wood. Right shaving it away, making it the right size that he needs in order to build the ark. And they're coming in saying What

00:09:33 --> 00:09:44

are you doing? This is not even your profession. This is not even what you do. You don't even know how to do this. How do you know what are you thinking? But Allah subhana wa tada sent angels to help know how to his center.

00:09:46 --> 00:10:00

And he says to them in response, that if you laugh at us now and what we're doing over here building this Ark, then soon you'll see that we will be laughing at you as well. And he says, You will soon come to know who will be visiting

00:10:00 --> 00:10:31

Who will be visited by a humiliating torment in this life and overwhelmed by an everlasting punishment in the next? So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the command to Prophet nor Hattie has sent him to build an ark this massive ship, right a massive and you'll see how Allah Subhana Allah gives him the command to take one from every pair from every one of the creation write a pair from every one of the creation every animal a male and a female

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

route will be led him into shape and regime.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:39

Law come up

00:10:40 --> 00:10:49

right shape on is trying to get me to stop the last hour of the day and I need some food in me but hamdulillah we'll keep going keep pushing right Don't let it get to you.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:54

So then had either a marina or fara to know

00:10:55 --> 00:11:35

me mill has been cooled is oj in his name? Allah Subhana Allah says and when our band came, and the oven burst as in, water started to flow from ground right, and the skies filled without and the rain started to come down. Right? Know how to his son M is commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, take into an ark a pair of every species along with your family, except those who the decree to drown has already been passed. It's already been written for certain people of your family to drown and not to be in the ark with you.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:58

And those who believe right or to be within the ark with him, but none believed with him except for a few. How many years did know how to his set him called his people and invite them? Who remembers the answer to this? I know I gave you homework yesterday. And this shouldn't be homework. This should be a simple question to a simple answer that you all know of very well.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:51

The homework yesterday for those who forgot. Allah in Olia Allah Allah often that led him on his own you had to memorize that right? Hopefully you did it good. z now 950 years Alhamdulillah 950 years Allah Subhana Allah says 1000 years less 50 so 950 years look not very close but off by 40 years. Okay. I mean, you're talking 1040 is just a small number. Right over 90 years. Mata by C'mon man 950 years you guys know this, I taught you this. I taught you the prophets of Allah you guys know these answers, right 950 years normally has set up now how many people believed? When you look at different narrations and different

00:12:52 --> 00:13:36

you know, traditions that are mentioned, not more than 80 people were from amongst the followers of nor Halle, his setup, not more than 80 people, Allahu Akbar. Now, when you think of that, and you compare it to us living in 2020, you have some celebrity scholars, right? Who and this was a thing when I was like a teenager, you would hear a lot about, you know, scholars who are giving Dharma street Dharma, public Dharma, you know, masses, Dharma to the masses. And the number of people that embraced Islam, they used to keep track of and used to talk about, right. They used to talk about people used to say, to be fair here, it was the people who would follow those scholars that would

00:13:36 --> 00:14:03

say, oh, chefs on soul, Shea Hassan so this person, this brother, this sister, you know, they would they give that out to people, they have 900 people 1000 people, 4000 people, 10,000 people 20,000 people who embraced Islam at their hands hamdulillah hamdulillah look at no honey has set up 950 years of calling his people to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala not more than 80 people were from amongst those who followed.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:07

That's less than one person

00:14:09 --> 00:14:14

per 10 years, right? It's less than one person for every 10 years.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

May Allah make it easy for us to

00:14:20 --> 00:14:58

understand the benefits of doing small deeds. Sometimes it is the little things that count the little things that have a very heavy weight on the scale, where we don't need to do much in order for it to be heavy on the scale, in terms of how Allah subhana wa tada recognizes those deeds. Earlier today I was you know, some of the brothers reached out to me online and they were asking me some questions. And I was telling them, you know, it's the little deeds or a little kind of action that a person may have done in their life. So some of the brothers were asking me, you know, one brother in particular, he mentioned

00:15:00 --> 00:15:38

He says, you know, nowadays a lot of people are passing away. And we hear a lot of, you know, sad news of people, especially if you know, you have family and friends in India or you're born and raised there, you know, you might have a lot of family and friends or relatives or people that you know, that are becoming ill with covid 19 numbers are very high in India, we ask Allah subhana wa to Allah to have mercy upon the people of India and to make it easy for them to get through this challenging time. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to guide the hearts, towards Islam and towards goodness. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect and save all of our brothers and

00:15:38 --> 00:15:41

sisters who are going through hardship and difficulty. I mean,

00:15:42 --> 00:16:16

so one of the brothers in particular, he says, you know, a lot of people, he's hearing news of people every single day sick with COVID passing away. He's like, How do you stay positive? How do you stay motivated? You know, how do you not let it get to you? You know, it just, it's too much. And it's true. It's true. You know, earlier today, there was something funny I wanted, that I received and I wanted to share. And I was like, Okay, this group of brothers, they would get this joke. And I thought know, someone shared something of, you know, a relative of theirs that just passed away. So I'll avoid sharing anything that's funny. And then another group, which is like all

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

graduates of Medina, who were friends of mine while I was a student there, and I thought, No, I'm not going to share this there. Because another one of our friends, Chef, Muscat, a blue bottle cat in London, England, you know, to two very close people to his family passed away one in another country and one in the UK. And I was like some Pamela, it's like, every single group has a mention of someone who passed away. So I was like, forget the jokes. Hey, forget it. Just put it aside, Pamela, because it's just not respectful. To mention something like that when, you know, people are grieving and going through a hard time. It's better to make them out. It's better to motive with

00:16:56 --> 00:16:57

something good.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:02

Why was even talking about this?

00:17:03 --> 00:17:12

I don't even know why, why I went into this, who can remind me why I went into this saatavilla this is this is what happens. Right? That I said?

00:17:13 --> 00:17:17

Yes. So I was telling the brothers Look, what you do, what you need to do is

00:17:18 --> 00:17:20

sometimes when someone passes away,

00:17:21 --> 00:17:52

there's a number of things that I recognize for myself that I told myself, and maybe I'll share it with you guys someday. But one of the things that I that I told them was, do sadaqa give sadaqa. But you'll notice as well, when you hear something about the person who passed away, family members, relatives, friends, colleagues, right, they will mention something about this person, something that person was known for something they were, you know, particular about, and people recognized that within them.

00:17:53 --> 00:18:27

That small deed, it may have been one time only that that person did it. But so many people recognized and cherish and appreciate, and love and respect that person for that one thing that they did. So don't belittle a small deed, a kind act, something that we consider to be maybe insignificant, we should all be striving hard to try and find a way to please Allah subhanaw taala in little things, little deeds. And here's another example.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

I was praying they'll have today

00:18:32 --> 00:18:36

in the masjid. And there's a brother.

00:18:38 --> 00:19:19

And I probably shouldn't have mentioned today, but right. Just because it narrows it down and narrows down the list of who this brother could be. But there's a brother in our community can I'll just say it this way. There's a brother in our community, who I noticed, he always will try to be you know how certain people have certain actions like the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of the men the Sahaba, the Allahu anhu, you know, recognize what is it that this man is so good for this companion? What does he do? And he wrote the Allah and, and this habit of the long run, they investigated and they saw that at night, he is awake before going to bed, he makes a how

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

to a law. And he asks Allah to forgive him of any sins, and he clears his heart. He says he clears his heart of any grievances that he may have against someone else. Small kind to action that makes that person from the people of paradise. So there's a brother in our community, who I've noticed whenever we go to the masjid, whenever we are praying in congregation, this brother always needs to be the last one to leave. Not because of any other reason not because of some other benefit, but especially at the end of the day, especially at the end of the day, after a

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

He will make it

00:20:04 --> 00:20:26

such that everyone will leave before him. And he will still be in the masjid finishing up praying, and then he will leave. So it's written down as the last person to leave from the muster is that brother now, I tried to compete with him because I recognize this within this brother. So sometimes, if I go to the muster that vote and he's there,

00:20:28 --> 00:20:36

I'll try to pray some extra soon afterwards, and see if I can be the last one to leave instead of him.

00:20:37 --> 00:21:18

Or at Asia, sometimes, I know that I'm in my office, and he waits around, because I'm in my office, and I'm doing work, especially in the summer months, even though Russia is very late, I still go back to my office and still finish up work and do what I need to do. So he will like take his time, right? Take his time, he'll come by ask me, is there anything that I need? Right, he'll go back into the mustard, he'll pray a little more and make some do. He just wants to be written, I can tell I could he never told me this. But I can tell he wants to be written down as the last to leave the mustard every single day. You know, little deeds like that. community members, I'm pretty sure. I'm

00:21:18 --> 00:21:20

pretty sure that none.

00:21:21 --> 00:21:28

I can't guarantee this. But I'm pretty sure that none of our other community members have recognized this about that brother.

00:21:30 --> 00:22:01

But because I'm usually there last, and I'm usually in my office pretty late. I've noticed this about him. And sometimes he tries to wait and wait and wait. And at times, there were times where I'm in my office online after a show because I have a class or a lecture to do. And I will live stream after Asia. He will leave and then he will come back. He will go home. And he'll come back. And I'll see him and I'll go and I'll be like somebody come Oh, is everything okay? says yeah, just want to pray to it. Okay.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:06

And pray to rock I waiting for me to leave.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:47

And then he'll leave either at the same time as me or just like a minute after me. And sometimes I'll sit in my car outside. And I will, you know, answer questions and emails in my car on my phone. And he's insight and then he'll come out and say, Oh, you're still here. I'm like, yeah, I'm still here. And he knows that I'm observing him. But we never talked about it. It's just a beautiful thing about this brother. He's elderly brother, may Allah Subhana Allah preserve him. I mean, you know, it's just something really beautiful, how people strive for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So now's a time when a lot of people are down because of what's happening right around the world. A lot

00:22:47 --> 00:22:57

of new cases popping up with COVID not only internationally, but here within Canada within our province of Ontario. I know in Perth, Australia. SubhanAllah just the other day, maybe someone you know,

00:22:58 --> 00:23:11

I hate to say it evil I am. But Subhanallah you know, in Australia, New Zealand, people have been enjoying themselves in massage and gathering praying. There's zero coast zero cases of COVID-19.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:52

Just yesterday, they shut down Perth, Australia for three days, because there were two reported cases of COVID-19 so they shut down for three days complete shut down, isolate everything, contain it and then they will reopen and shut a lot of Tad is difficult. But what we need to do is find a good deed and stick to it. Find a good deed and stick to it. Because people will recognize that within us and they will make do and strive hard to try and please Allah subhanho wa Taala through the good deeds that we did that we find in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's not anything new. We find it in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:23:55 --> 00:24:24

Alright, let's move on. Then in verse number 42, Allah subhana wa tada says, and so the ark sailed with them through waves like mountains, nor called out to his son who stood apart. Oh my dear son, come aboard with us and do not be with the disbelievers. No, Haley has sent him son is there and he calls out to him tells his son come on board this ship, come on board the ark that we've built

00:24:25 --> 00:24:36

and his son, look, Allah subhana wa tada said none will board that ship who has been decreed to drown within within that water.

00:24:37 --> 00:24:43

So his son responses his call as we know Jeb and he Simoni mean.

00:24:46 --> 00:24:59

He says to his father, don't worry, I'll take refuge on that mountain, which will protect me from the water. I'll swim over to that mountain. I'll be fine. Don't worry, right. I'll make my way up onto the mountain and I'll be safe

00:25:00 --> 00:25:09

protected, nor Halle has sent him cried. Today no one is protected from Allah's decree, except those who he shows mercy to.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:14

And the waves came between them.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:22

And his son was among those who drowned in danila he for in Elijah Raji rune

00:25:25 --> 00:25:27

and it was said, Oh Earth,

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

swallow up your water

00:25:32 --> 00:25:35

and the OSI withhold your rain.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:39

And so the flood water receded.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:46

And the decree was carried out. And the ark rested upon mount doody

00:25:47 --> 00:25:56

and it was said, away with the wrongdoing people. Allah subhanaw taala destroyed those who disbelieved.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:00

So no Halla has Sanam calls out to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:08

And he says, My Lord, I'll be

00:26:09 --> 00:26:23

in Ebony min. Lee. What in what can? What can will hacky mean? He says, My Lord, certainly, my son is also of my family.

00:26:24 --> 00:26:37

Your promise is surely true. And you are the most just of all judges. He's calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala feeling sad that his son passed away.

00:26:38 --> 00:26:46

Allah responds to know how he has sent him and says, in whole lay salmon lick.

00:26:47 --> 00:27:02

Oh, no. He is certainly not from your family. He was entirely of unrighteous conduct. He was from those who disobeyed and disbelieved in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:21

And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows more honey has sent him even your own son, your own son,

00:27:22 --> 00:27:39

who you want to have boarded upon that ship, who you want to have been saved, who you are asking me about now who dread it in the waters? Allah subhana wa tada says, Yeah, in who lays him in Alec. Oh, no, he is not from your family.

00:27:40 --> 00:27:43

Now what that means is, yes, he's your son.

00:27:44 --> 00:27:55

But your family is the family of the believers. And this is where my brothers and sisters, I remind us of something I always remind myself about.

00:27:56 --> 00:28:29

Because I have family members who are not Muslim. I have relatives who are not Muslim, and they are family. Blood is thicker than water. We know that blood is thicker than water, right? We know that for a fact. Blood is thicker than water. Right as in family members, relatives are closer to us, then friends, then colleagues, neighbors, people who are around us, right? family members are much closer to us than anyone else. Blood is thicker than water. But there is something that is thicker than blood.

00:28:31 --> 00:28:32

And that is

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

the Shahada a shadow

00:28:37 --> 00:28:41

in the law. As a no Mohammed Abu Saud

00:28:45 --> 00:28:50

family members are closer than friends. But believers

00:28:51 --> 00:28:53

can be closer than family members.

00:28:55 --> 00:29:00

Believers can be closer than family members. And I say this knowing fully well.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:05

That people may feel that that isn't true.

00:29:06 --> 00:29:10

The reality is, if you interact with people

00:29:11 --> 00:29:33

who are about to pass away, or you interact with families, who have a loved one loved one who passed away we say loved ones. They argue over the pettiest of things. The smallest of things. Land. My father My brother passed away and left land for me but my sister wants to take it away.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:47

Why are you arguing? You have a nice house you have a nice home. You have children that are old enough. We'll work Your sister has no and she's a widow. Why are you arguing and taking it but it's mine. It's mine. It's mine.

00:29:49 --> 00:29:50


00:29:51 --> 00:29:59

stinginess being arrogant family, blood relatives, and this happens a lot

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

In certain cultures, I won't mention any those of you who are from those cultures, you know very well, who you are.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:25

It happens too often, where family members argue over the smallest of things. They left a watch for me, a friend of mine so Pamela, I remember his mom passed away. And there was an argument over a ring over a ring.

00:30:26 --> 00:30:47

And the ring didn't belong to anyone else except his mom. She was the one who purchased that ring. But because the ring had such a high value, people were arguing, family members, relatives, friends, all were claiming, she told me I could have this ring. She told me I could have this ring when she passed away. So Pamela,

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

we are arguing over a ring.

00:30:53 --> 00:31:10

Allah subhana wa tada shows us that the believers understand that the things of this dunya are things of this dunya. And yes, I know people will say but doubt these are believers arguing about people who, you know, family members who passed away, but the difference is, the level of emotion is low,

00:31:12 --> 00:31:28

the level of emotion is low. Because if the level of emotion was high, there would not be such a love and desire for this dunya there would not be such a love and desire to be on this land and have this land and have this house and have this property.

00:31:29 --> 00:32:11

Because it's like Hamas, we're not going to be here forever anyways. And there's also respect, Islam teaches us to respect our family members and do not cut family ties. But what happens is, when someone passes away, people end up dividing themselves as relatives and family members, because they can't agree on certain things that need the things need to be divided amongst them, but they don't want to so they divide themselves in order to be attached to the things in that Illa who were in that you know, you're all German, that's probably a bigger masiva than the loss of the loved one.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:37

Probably a bigger masiva a bigger problem than the loss of the loved one, because the person who passed away the sibling or the parent who passed away, there was love when that person was there. And when they left, people are not but sad because of the loss of their loved one. They are angry and arrogant. And you know treating people with disrespect and rude

00:32:39 --> 00:33:10

because of the things of this dunya that they are not getting. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from all of that greed and stinginess. So no hana has Sanam is told by Allah subhanho wa Taala he's not from your family. He's not from your family, even though he knows very well that it's his son, but he's not from your family is in theirs. Family members who are believers that are closer to you. Those who disbelieve We ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us all.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:18

Then Allah subhana wa tada highlights in verse number 51. ina Deen

00:33:20 --> 00:33:30

the call Konerko Mohamed El Camino Isla hindawi in to evil.

00:33:32 --> 00:34:22

And the people of ad we sent to their brother who would and he said oh my people worship Allah, you have no God other than him. You do nothing but fabricate lies against Allah. So who would add a He has sent him, you know, mentions this and he says, Oh my people, I do not ask you for any reward for this message. Right? Once again. Yeah, call Neela lucuma Alejandra in Algeria Illa Island lady in a fog or any other that afternoon. So he tells these people I'm not asking you for anything in return. Right? What if a family member what a family members attack you and your family and threaten you? Should you maintain ties, you keep your door open, you don't cut them off? Right? You keep your door

00:34:22 --> 00:34:59

open, but you put that firm stance there from attacks, stop attacks, don't let people attack you. Right. But make sure that if they are in need, what I mean by keeping your door open is when they are in need of something if family is ever in need of something, they can always come to you for help. But you will not tolerate threats you will not tolerate attacks you will not tolerate lies you will not tolerate deceit, but if they are ever in a position of need, then you will be there to help them in a system. So you are not cutting off family ties. But you're putting a hard stance to

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

Things that are evil and no good, right?

00:35:04 --> 00:35:21

So know who the alayhis salam says to his people as well. My reward is only from the one who created me. Will you not then understand I'm not doing this for any sort of pay any any recompense from you or anyone else. We skipped to verse number 61. What you

00:35:24 --> 00:35:25


00:35:27 --> 00:35:28

on a call

00:35:31 --> 00:35:38

mean in in zero. And two the people of the mood we sent their brother saw

00:35:39 --> 00:36:07

to the people of the mood, we sent their brother saw. And he said, Oh my people worship Allah, you have no God other than him. He is the one who produced you from the earth and settled you on it. So seek His forgiveness and turn to Him in repentance. surely my Lord is ever near, all responsive to prayers. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Same sort of message from who

00:36:08 --> 00:36:20

from nor hallae has sent him from who the Allah has sent him from Saudi alayhis salam, we then skip to let me just make sure I'm not missing out on anything here. Verse number 81.

00:36:21 --> 00:37:13

Lot alayhis salam, right we see a little bit of the lesson of the story of loot. And he said on prophet loot, the angel said old route. We are the messengers of your Lord. They will never reach you. So travel with your family in the dark of night. And do not let any of you look back except your wife. She will certainly suffer the fate of the others. Their appointed time is the morning is the morning not near. So Luther alayhis salam was told by the angels who came and they visited Prophet Ibrahim it has sent him Prophet Ibrahim it has sent him had a REM sacrificed for them and he presented them this food. They did not eat Ibrahim Allah His seller knew something was wrong. He

00:37:13 --> 00:37:27

questioned them and he said, why is it that you don't eat You're my guests. If you're not eating, either and something is wrong, or you came here with an intention to harm me You came here to do some sort of wrong.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:29

And they said,

00:37:30 --> 00:37:38

Be calm, be at ease. We've been sent from Allah subhana wa tada they are angels. With regards to

00:37:39 --> 00:37:48

your nephew. Lord, Allah has sent him we are going to him to see him. His people are from those who will be destroyed.

00:37:50 --> 00:38:11

Ibrahim, Allah has sent him his wife, she chuckles because she knows that Luther alayhis salam has been warning his people, and they continued in their ways. And he's been telling them that they will be punished if they don't change their ways and stop the sins that they're committing murder and cheating and stealing and so on and so forth. We know the story of Luther early has sent him.

00:38:14 --> 00:38:17

So even on him and he says, But wait a second.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:21

Luke Luth is with them.

00:38:22 --> 00:39:03

He's a righteous person. You need to protect him save him, right? And they said, Don't worry, the amount of the order the command is with us. We know what to do. And so they go to see Luthor alayhis salam, when they get closer to Luke alayhis. Salaam, his village, he hears of these travelers that are coming, he goes and he receives them and he secretly brings them to his house because he was stopped. He was no longer he was being oppressed. Technically, he was no longer allowed to entertain guests within his home, because he was bringing them in his home and telling them leave quickly. Don't stay here. These people are people that will abuse you, and they will take advantage of you.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:06

And so get out of this town don't stay here.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:21

Luther alayhis salam brought them to his home. And the people found out and they came in, they surrounded his home. And they chased him. They tried to get him to, you know, leave and they were like this is it. You've gone too far.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:50

So they reassure Luke alayhis salaam, don't worry, they won't touch you. They won't do anything to you. But you have to pack up and leave. And you have until the morning. You have until the morning. Now, the reason why I wanted to highlight this verse, verse number 81 of surah Hoot is because Allah subhana wa Taala shows us here that he's given a message to leave by morning

00:39:51 --> 00:39:55

and look at the submission of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Tada.

00:39:56 --> 00:39:59

He's told leave your people leave your town. Leave your

00:40:00 --> 00:40:14

Home, leave your family leave everyone who doesn't believe just go. And don't look back not even for your wife because she is from amongst those that indulges in the actions of the people that live in your town.

00:40:15 --> 00:40:16

And so,

00:40:18 --> 00:40:19

the only

00:40:21 --> 00:40:22

who, I'll ask you

00:40:23 --> 00:40:26

who leaves with loose? Allah His center?

00:40:28 --> 00:40:31

who leaves? loose Allah His center?

00:40:35 --> 00:40:55

Someone should know the answer to this. If not, it'll be your homework in sha Allah. Tada. I know, I know, some of you know it, because I've taught this to you, in many different countries. And I see people in multiple countries that are alive that are on the livestream, who I know for a fact have attended my classes. Right. So you should know this and you should share the answer. Very good.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:08

Very good. His daughters and hamdulillah. Right, his daughters good. So his daughters leave with him, his wife doesn't leave.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:47

New holiday has sent him is given the night to pack up and go look at the submission of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala they don't focus on this dunya they don't focus on this world. They focus on conveying the message that needs to be spread to the people of this world. And they don't indulge riches of this world. Those that did have the ability to indulge in it like prophet devil Daddy, his son, um, Prophet Sulaiman Ali Salaam, they were extremely, extremely wealthy.

00:41:48 --> 00:42:35

But they were still very humble. Allah subhana wa tada told the data, he said, I'm in Niger, NACA Hurry, fatten fill out, he didn't take any wealth from his people. In fact, he used to work his own job, his own profession, to gain his own wealth and use that for himself, his family and the people around him. And so the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala, they, in the blink of an eye, snap of a finger, they left everything for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why you see examples trickling down to the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would request from his Sahaba, his companions, we need some wealth, we need some financial assistance, who

00:42:35 --> 00:42:50

is going to help us some of the Sahaba would bring half of their wealth, some of the Sahaba would bring one quarter of their wealth, some would bring 1/3 of their wealth of the book or the loved one brought all of his wealth that he had in his possession that day.

00:42:51 --> 00:43:15

And I say it this way, because of a bucket of the alohar and did not abandon his family as well. He brought all of his wealth and presented it to the profits on a longer I knew he was selling here. This is everything I have. He aboubaker of the long line was asked by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did you leave for your family? He says, I left Allah subhana wa to Allah and His messenger.

00:43:18 --> 00:44:00

Now I know there are certain people nowadays in 2021, who will say Alhamdulillah, we're going for 40 days, we're going for four months, and we're leaving with our family, Allah and His messenger. But look at the difference. Abu Bakar on the Allah and did not go and leave and say I'm leaving Allah and His messenger or I'm leaving a lot to look after my family and that's it. I will book or the longer and came and presented all the wealth he had for his day. But he had businesses, he had a steady income. So tomorrow there would be wealth that was coming to his family. And the day after there would be a wealth that was coming to his family and the day after there would be wealth that

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

is coming to his family. So he did not abandon his family. He did not leave his family with nothing. He did not say Allah will find a way to give you something. In fact, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us to tie our camel and then have to work put in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So take your means fulfill your your responsibility, especially as a husband, for those of you who are husbands and fathers. This is a message for you. Don't just abandon your family and say Allah will find a way to provide for my wife and children. Yes, Allah will. But it is your responsibility to do that.

00:44:42 --> 00:44:46

And if you fail, Allah won't fail your family.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:49

But you fail yourself.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:59

You see the difference there? You know sometimes we misunderstand or people miss quote, Miss translate

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

failed to understand context of what is being said and done.

00:45:05 --> 00:45:19

aboubaker on the lower end was a wealthy man who had businesses across Arabia. And money was constantly coming in things were being sold. He was a merchant, he loved cloth and material.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:23

And he was not one to leave his family with nothing.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:38

So my brothers and sisters, Luther alayhis salaam, picked up and left. And he knew that from amongst those who disbelieve the punishment of Allah would be there. In the next verse, verse number 82.

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

And I know we're short on time. When our command came, we turn the cities upside down and rain down on them clustered stones of baked clay, Allah Subhana which Allah destroyed the entire nation as in all the people that were there.

00:45:55 --> 00:46:05

But no, sorry loot Allah has sent him and his daughters were safe. And from amongst those who were destroyed was the wife of loot Ali Hassan.

00:46:08 --> 00:46:15

What Isla Medina aha home sure either. Allah Jaco merimbula come in either in the hero,

00:46:16 --> 00:46:43

Allah Subhana Allah then says in verse number 84, and to the people of medion, we sent their brother Sure, I believe, and he said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no God other than Him. And do not give short measure and wait, don't cheat people. I do see you in prosperity now. But I truly fear for you the torment of an overwhelming day.

00:46:47 --> 00:47:29

Oh my people, verse number 89. Do not let your opposition to me lead you to fate similar to that of the people of North or who would or saw and the people have looked are not far from you. This is the last verse that will take verse number 89. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how sure I was telling his people Hey, listen, don't be like the nations of the past. Don't be like no, don't be like the people of who would not like no, but don't be like those who disobeyed. No. Don't be like those who rejected the message of who'd Don't be like those who rejected the message of solid and you're not very far off from what the people of Luther alayhis salaam were doing. And hey, they were just a

00:47:29 --> 00:47:40

stone's throw away and they were not too long ago before us. And so please be careful. Don't disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. You know very well what happened to them?

00:47:42 --> 00:48:22

You know very well what happened to them? So my brothers and sisters, due to the lack of time we will end here. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to continue to learn from the book of Allah azza wa jal called earn and we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to accept from every single one of us and to forgive us of any wrongdoings and any sins or mistakes that we've made. Anything that I've sent said or done, that is wrong is from myself in shape on and anything that is right is from Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala added to make the classes that we attend to every single day heavy on our scale, and beneficial to us in this life as well as in the
