This fella had

00:00:04 --> 00:00:56

a handily layer of delay alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabi Karim Ali of all of solar to atom taslim from beshara li soggy where Sydney Emily wahoo and Auckland attending the turning of gobble Gali. Others in my sister's sent him where they come to LA he robot our cattle. So today is the 19th of April, Monday, April 19 2021. And it is the seventh day of the month of Ramadan. So we have been fasting now for one week already hamdulillah. Technically, when you break up a month, a month looks like four weeks in a few days. So we're almost one quarter through the month, right? We're just about one quarter through this month of Ramadan.

00:00:58 --> 00:00:59

Which means

00:01:00 --> 00:01:31

in a few days, we'll be 1/3 through the month, and then a few days after that we will be halfway through the month. And then a few days after that, we will be two thirds of the way through the month and into the last 10 nights. And that's just how quick the month of Ramadan goes. Right It comes in and goes. We begin the month thinking so Pamela feels like I'm abunda was just yesterday. And now we noticed that Ramadan is here and one week is already gone. Tonight is the eighth Night of the month of October.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:49

So again, I remind myself and I remind every single one of us that we need to make sure we focus on what our goals were throughout this month overall, what did we plan on doing what were our intentions before the month begin? And have we

00:01:52 --> 00:01:57

have we even done to to reach our goals and to work towards them?

00:01:58 --> 00:02:26

Having said that, there's a couple of things that I do want to remind everyone about, they could see that my wife is mentioning that here but there's not enough people online yet we just started usually takes a good 510 minutes for everyone to get on. So we have about less than half the amount of people that usually join. So I'll mention that towards the end and shout out if you can remind me later. In the meantime, Michelle, lots of accolades see.

00:02:27 --> 00:03:11

Britain Nadeem is there, the sound is still choppy. Along with that, I was just gonna ask that question. So my internet is running at half the speed today that it usually runs at. And I believe that partly because of the weather and partly because of the fact that the entire you know, network system here in Canada is kind of messed up today, we see that quite a few service providers or carriers are not operating anyway, I have no internet on my phone and I'm not able to make any phone calls as well and I keep getting notices that I have voicemail but I'm not able to check it and I'm not able to make any calls. So

00:03:12 --> 00:03:16

hamdulillah I mean in one sense, it's been a little bit quiet

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

in terms of phone calls, and

00:03:21 --> 00:03:33

on the other hand, it's just extra work that's backing up. So we will remind people if something at the end inshallah daddy there's something coming up in a few days that we need to bring to everyone's attention

00:03:34 --> 00:03:51

but before we get to that we will continue with our Jews are looking at the seven Jews the seven C's of the Quran. In this Jews we start off with sorta to Merida and we will transition into Torah and down Okay, so what?

00:03:56 --> 00:03:56


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

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, correct. Correct.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

me though we start off with and then we finish off with salt.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:31

In surah two, we will look at verse number 90 to begin with all our data so we'll skip through the beginning of the the Jews to verse number 1991 and 92 Allah subhana wa tada says here rules will be lurking in a shape on analyzing. Yeah.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:34

You Hello, Idina

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36


00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

my easy one.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:44

feeling hungry while you may see why else would

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

00:05:17 --> 00:05:19

appear on

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

your own was never

00:05:25 --> 00:05:26

late on

00:05:33 --> 00:05:36

a whole movie

00:05:38 --> 00:05:41

in these three verses a Lawson panel Adana highlights

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

some of the

00:05:45 --> 00:06:28

prohibited food items or things which are generally prohibited to us as Muslims of course we mentioned yesterday This is sold out to the SWAT titled The spread right the table spread and he said it he said as we'll see shortly, you know his people ask him his disciples ask him or his people you know send down ask a lot ask God to send something down from the skies and we'll talk about that shortly inshallah Jana so so that the spread the table filled with food, right, Allah subhanaw taala here says in verse number 90 have sort of 290 day Yeah, you know, in number commonweal, Mason Walton sabol as level reaches Amina relish upon

00:06:30 --> 00:06:37

all believers in toxicants, gambling idols and drawing lots for decisions are all evil,

00:06:39 --> 00:06:57

of shape Vaughn's handiwork. So these are some of the things that shaman does, right? He encourages human beings to indulge in the things that Allah Subhana Allah has made, how long for us, and Allah subhanho Medina says vegetarian evil, the eloquent of your home.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:42

So shun them as in stay away from them, you generally stay away from these things, so that you may be successful. Let's take a look at some of them and show a lot of data. First of all, most of Henry says, are believers in tokens. These are things that are from the evils of shape ons, handiwork, intoxicants, things that make us forget or lose focus of the things that are important to us in this life. And you'll notice that as human beings, a lot of the time we do things to sort of take us away, or distract us from what is important, distract us from the reality of life.

00:07:44 --> 00:08:14

Now, if we're going to do things that will distract us from the reality of life, or distract us from what's important to us, what that means is that we are taking ourselves away from what's important, while that thing that's important is still there, for example, you have all these worries in your life, how am I going to make ends meet? How am I going to pay my bills? How am I going to, you know, fulfill all of all of these financial responsibilities that I have in front of me.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:52

You know, life is too difficult, and someone goes in, they drink alcohol, and they've tried to forget about it, and they get drunk. And you know, they have some fun, what they consider to be fun, we consider it to be, you know, a very sad state, very sad condition to be in. And then they wake up the next morning, they feel terrible, they feel awful, they have a hangover, they have a headache, they're like, you know, I need coffee and need Tylenol I need, you know, I just not feeling good, can't process things. And then once they come back to their senses, well, all of these bills and financial responsibilities are still here, you didn't get rid of them, you didn't do anything

00:08:52 --> 00:09:25

different. They're still there, you still need to look after them. And you haven't really achieved anything different other than the fact that you wasted some time that you could have put your time and your energy towards earning that money that you need to take care of those financial responsibilities that you have. So my brothers and sisters, when it comes to looking after ourselves as human beings, we shouldn't give into the evils of shape on the things that shape on has created to distract us from what is important. Now remember,

00:09:26 --> 00:09:31

our financial responsibilities are important to us, but that's just one aspect of life.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:59

Our Deen Islam teaches us to make sure that we look after those financial responsibilities. So what's more important than those responsibilities is Islam. That we focus on doing what Islam tells us to do. And by default, we may not fall into debt. We may not fall into situations in life, where we are dependent upon others where we need something from someone else where you know, we are basically

00:10:01 --> 00:10:16

Just Just wondering, you know, wandering through life. So Allah subhana wa tada puts Islam in place, like I mentioned yesterday, there's boundaries and barriers in place where Allah subhanaw taala has made certain things halal for us. And other things, how long

00:10:17 --> 00:11:02

Here we see the loss of hanway data showing us that these boundaries of shape on sort of the boundaries of Islam shavon likes to try and penetrate. Right likes to try to break them down. chiffon wants us to be distracted from our being distracted from what's important for us distracted from the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, worshipping a lot distracted from providing for our families distracted from, you know, being honest, and just in our dealings and stuff like that. And here we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't only mention incidents, he says gambling, what does gambling do? You earn this money with your, you know, your hard work, all of your energy,

00:11:02 --> 00:11:35

strength, your time, you know, lack of sleep installing, you put in towards earning this wealth that you got. And you turn around and you say, you know what, I'm going to try to make more money with this money. And I'm to gamble it right, I'm going to take chances with it. That's irresponsible. And that is not the way of the Muslim not the way of the believer. We do not gamble at all. scratchcards important point that I need to mention. Sometimes people go to the, you know, the gas station, or a grocery store or you know, a convenience store.

00:11:37 --> 00:12:21

And as you're at the cash, you know, about to pay for your items, they'll ask you, would you like a scratch card? Would you like a lottery ticket? Right? Those are things that are hot on not permissible. Earlier today, someone told me, You know, I was visiting inmates in prison. And with one of the staff there, she was saying she's like, you guys, you know, I keep praying that I win the lottery. Can you guys pray to your God that I win the lottery as well. So I don't have to come into work every single day. And our response, my response was, you know, may God give you something better? What is better for you? He was like, No, no, no, I don't want anything better. I want to win

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

the lottery.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:30

winning the lottery, means you yourself become rich, possibly.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:38

But how many people are going into debt and wasting their money and burning their money

00:12:40 --> 00:12:44

trying to get rich and they never achieve it. So one person,

00:12:45 --> 00:13:03

no reach it something but it offset all of society. Another example like we were talking about a few days ago is Riba interest. So these are things that are how long Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you are letting me know in the middle commonweal. masive What unsolvable as language some anomalies shape on

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

Ridge is actually

00:13:09 --> 00:13:48

something that is that is impure. That is not nice. That is not just that isn't right. Right. That's how long and so gambling, you know, these scratch cards, you know, buying them in Muslim Subhana Allah, you know, sometimes you go into a store, and it's a Muslim brother or sister and they're asking you, would you like to buy lottery ticket? No, but it's part of their job. They actually have to say it, I asked a Muslim about this, and why do you? Why is it that? You know, the the, the cashier will always ask, even if it's a Muslim, you know, would you like a lottery ticket, they have to ask, it's part of their job, they tell them to do that. Now, of course, Muslims should try to

00:13:48 --> 00:14:29

work their ways around it, right? Where you may say, Hey, you know what, I'm not going to ask customers, if they ask for it, then I don't have a choice but to sell it to them. Of course, this is, you know, a completely different topic and tip that we can discuss another day, but I will refuse or I refuse to offer it to the customers. Now, of course, the employer is not going to be happy with that. I know I was asking this one brother about it. And he was saying, you know, they you have to if you don't ask, if you don't ask, then you're penalized, right? or there might be certain consequences that you're facing as an employee because you didn't ask if the customer wants

00:14:29 --> 00:14:51

to buy a scratch card or ticket. So that's something that you know as Muslims, we need to be very careful of those of us that are shopping the purchaser we need to be very careful, do not buy them do not get in and there are many Muslims who do I know this because sometimes I'm standing in line and in front of me brothers and sisters, and they are buying these

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53


00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

of chance. Gambling is not permissible. My brothers and sisters

00:15:00 --> 00:15:37

Don't waste your money, the better thing would be to take those two or three or four or five or $10 give it in sadaqa give it to a charity, give it to someone who's in need you for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah will increase your wealth. So for those of us who are addicted to this or we are, you know, we submit buying those tickets, or those scratch cards, try to change your habit, all the money that you would put daily towards the scratch arts put towards sadaqa and you'll see that your wealth will increase drastically.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:52

In verse number that Allah Subhana Allah mentions idols and we know that that is not permissible to worship idols drawing lots also not permissible aesthetically

00:15:57 --> 00:16:04

loss of habitat it then says in the ureter shape on a yoke, they are being accumulated yawata will both have in harmony while masive

00:16:06 --> 00:16:10

shape bonds plan is to stir up hostility

00:16:11 --> 00:16:16

and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:31

Okay, that's the plan of shape on he wants to do this. He wants to stir things up between us with gambling within talks against loss of power Donna says and to prevent you from remembering a lot in praying.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:44

So we get addicted to these things as human beings not us. Those who do get addicted to it. Allah subhanaw taala protect and save us all. And there was a pan with analyze the *

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47

Will you not then abstain?

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

Well, I think your Allah wealthier must

00:16:51 --> 00:17:30

obey Allah and obey the messenger and beware. But if you turn away the know that our messengers duty is only to deliver the message clearly. That is the responsibility of the profits on a long wire and a USN and the responsibility of us as believers and followers of monoliths on a lovely day us and them to deliver that message. We cannot force others, we can only advise. And this is why I said sometimes I see brothers and sisters standing in line or employees who are offering the Muslims come in. Do you know these

00:17:32 --> 00:17:53

scratch cards and lottery tickets and so on. We can only advise and we leave it to a loss of one or two. If a person continues to indulge in it, we continue to advice. We cannot force someone to stop it. We cannot take action against them. This is something that we leave to Allah subhana wa what's had

00:17:56 --> 00:17:59

let's move on to verse number

00:18:01 --> 00:18:06

116 of swatted, matita, verse number 116 of surah.

00:18:09 --> 00:18:11

Allah subhanaw taala says

00:18:13 --> 00:18:16

what you've called Allah, we already said no, mommy and

00:18:18 --> 00:18:18


00:18:19 --> 00:18:20

does he know?

00:18:21 --> 00:18:23

Nothing he knew.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:27


00:18:28 --> 00:18:32

on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah will say,

00:18:33 --> 00:18:58

ERISA early his Salah, oh, ERISA even more memoriam Oh Jesus, son of Mary. Did you ever ask the people to worship you and your mother as Gods beside Allah? Did you ever ask the people to worship you and your mother as gods? Besides our

00:18:59 --> 00:19:13

that's really interesting, because a lot of the time as Muslims, we think that this was something that was around at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it's very interesting that Allah brings this up. And what we took yesterday, in Surah, two,

00:19:14 --> 00:19:43

in the surah, talks about food, talks about things that are hidden and things that are home for us. Why do I feel that this is important? I feel that it is important, not ironic, important. It's not ironic that Allah did this. It is the plan of Allah, it is the color of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah chose to put these verses together to let us know in 2021 Muslims who say

00:19:45 --> 00:19:48

that the food of Al Kitab is haram

00:19:49 --> 00:19:50


00:19:51 --> 00:19:53

should know

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

that the reason why they say oh, you can't eat the food of the Christians and the Jewish

00:20:00 --> 00:20:13

Because this and because of that, a loss of data brings those examples here for us in the Quran in surah, titled Surah tornador. Okay, the spread of food.

00:20:14 --> 00:21:04

Why is this important? Because many Muslims say today, nowadays in 2021 Christians commit ship, they worship Jesus as the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, they worship marry, but Allah Subhana Allah is telling us here in the Quran, that they already did this. They already did this, because he reveals it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, he reveals it to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So that the Muslims at his time, were aware that this is an was a practice of the Christians already, yet Allah says that their food is halal for the Muslims.

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


00:21:08 --> 00:21:20

Does that make sense? Now, I am not saying to go and eat anything from anywhere now. And this is more important for us in Canada, when we think of

00:21:22 --> 00:21:25

us as Muslims living in a non Muslim country.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:36

By default, many years ago, we would think of Canada as a majority Christian population.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:43

But that's not the case anymore. The majority across the country as a nation,

00:21:44 --> 00:21:52

based on what we see in terms of statistics and so on, is that the majority of Canadians do not associate to

00:21:54 --> 00:21:58

falling under this category of possibly being atheist.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:00


00:22:01 --> 00:22:06

as opposed to what we see in the United States, in the United States.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:11

So hello, I mean, I remember I went to Dallas, Texas,

00:22:12 --> 00:22:38

I've been to Washington, I've been to New York, you see that people are very much connected to Christianity. And you will see it even within the sports leagues that they have, like in football, the NFL or the NHL, or, you know, any other sports league that they have there within the United States, they will

00:22:40 --> 00:23:03

express the fact that they are Christians, more than feel over here in Canada is the case amongst the general population. You don't really hear Canadians talking about God too much. Right? You hear a lot more in the United States, they're a lot more passionate about, you know, they're their religion.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:17

So as Muslims now, living in Canada, we need to also take into consideration the fact that the people who are processing the animals at the slaughterhouses are

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

not necessarily a Christian.

00:23:22 --> 00:23:45

So that's something to keep in mind. And I'm not going to go into foods. I'm not going to talk about foods. That's for our essential fifth class that we have every Sunday. You know, after the month of Ramadan is over, we will continue with that class. So you can attend that class in sha Allah to Allah and benefit from, you know, learning about the aspects of there that we see within the deen.

00:23:49 --> 00:23:55

So how do we tie that calls out to him? He said, he said I'm on the Day of Judgment, he will call out to Him and He will ask him

00:23:57 --> 00:24:05

Oh, Jesus, son of Mary, did you ever ask the people to worship you and your mother as Gods besides Allah? He will answer.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:07


00:24:08 --> 00:24:14

call me an apple ama is any help?

00:24:15 --> 00:24:23

He says, Glory bt subhanak Mallya cornue, the akula Melissa de

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

la salle de bihac. He says blurry to you, how could I ever say what I had no right to say? If I had said such a thing, he says.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:59

If I had actually said such a thing, you would certainly have known about it right in quintuple to Kolkata and you would have you know what I said? Right. You know very well what I told the people is what exactly is going on?

00:25:00 --> 00:25:06

Jesus is saying to Allah Subhana, WA tada to God and you will see this to him on the Day of Judgment.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:10

Enough See, when

00:25:12 --> 00:25:52

phenos seek, he says to Allah Subhana Allah, you know what is hidden within me, Dynamo, Matthew Nessie whatever animal Matthew nesic, but I do not know what is within you, in the under a level of you, he says, indeed you alone are the knower of all the unseen. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala is fully aware of what Raisa has said, used to say and teach his people, he asks him this question. And he will ask him this question on the day of Judge right, this is written for us here to show us what will take place on the Day of Judgment between Allah

00:25:53 --> 00:26:19

and Jesus, the people worship Jesus, and people worship him as the father as the son as the Holy Spirit. They worship Him as God, they consider him to be God. Well, they are you have to build up some kind of voice to protect and guide us all. I mean, and so Allah will ask this question in front of the people so that the people can witness that rissa Jesus Himself will say, I never asked him to worship me.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:44

I never asked him to worship Me and you very well that I didn't ask them to worship me, you know, what's within and I don't know what's within you what you think and what you feel and so on. And indeed you alone are the knower of all the unseen you know, what the people felt and did and heard, and, you know, is concealed and what is root? He then continues and says, mo?

00:26:45 --> 00:26:46


00:26:48 --> 00:26:51

me being he E. here and we'll

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

be back on?

00:26:57 --> 00:27:00

What gu torani himanshi

00:27:01 --> 00:27:03

tofi him Finally,

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

our fate any

00:27:12 --> 00:27:13

couldn't leash a

00:27:15 --> 00:27:42

show he did. A masa pan with Anna says that he sets, right. I never told them anything except what you ordered me to say. I as a messenger of yours of God. I've conveyed the message that you brought to me. This is what resigning is, and I'm just saying to Lhasa pan avoid Johanna and we'll see to him on the Day of Judgment. So I never told them anything except what you ordered me to say, worship

00:27:43 --> 00:27:48

my Lord and your Lord, and He will be back home.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:54

And I was a witness over them as long as I remained among them.

00:27:56 --> 00:28:32

But when you took me right to remember, he ascended. When you took me. You were the witness over them. I have no idea what they were doing. I was gone. I wasn't there. How can I be a witness for what they did? And what they said, I have no idea I was not there, you know? And you are a witness over all things. He says, well under cliche in Shahe Shahid. And so it's so simple, so straightforward. so beautifully said by arisa alayhis salam here in the Quran. And then he continues and says, you

00:28:35 --> 00:28:36

know, we're married.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

What you don't feel

00:28:44 --> 00:28:47

jealousy is how he,

00:28:49 --> 00:28:55

he then says, If you punish them, well, they belong to you, after all.

00:28:56 --> 00:29:39

But if you forgive them, you are surely Almighty, all wise. So Allah subhana wa tada has and will have this conversation with ERISA and he sent him on the Day of Judgment. And we see how he sadly has sent him converses with Allah subhanho data and he tells him in the end he says if you punish them, well they belong to you. And I don't know what they did after you had taken me away after I send it in went up. I have no idea. And so that's between them and you. And so if you punish them, well, they belong to you anyways, you can do as you wish with human beings, they belong to you. But if you forgive them, you are surely the Almighty, all wise.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:44

highlighting the fact loss of * with that and knows.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:54

And he said it he said um, knows that Allah is merciful, and that Allah has the power and ability and mighty to do as he wishes.

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

We move on and chat a long time.

00:30:02 --> 00:30:07

We now transition into surah. An surah to

00:30:09 --> 00:30:20

the cattle. So we're talking about food now we're talking about cap, right we started with Surah Fatiha then Surah Baqarah, then early on then Torah Tunis and so on smaller

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

and smaller and

00:30:24 --> 00:30:25

the cattle

00:30:27 --> 00:30:31

let's get diverse number 19 of this SWAT. Okay,

00:30:33 --> 00:30:36

here in verse number 19, Allah subhana wa tada says

00:30:39 --> 00:30:41

I usually in

00:30:44 --> 00:30:45


00:30:49 --> 00:30:50


00:30:51 --> 00:30:56

veiny Wolverine calm. We're here at Yulia, then

00:31:00 --> 00:31:01


00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

bello in

00:31:10 --> 00:31:11


00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

mistake in

00:31:23 --> 00:31:24

any hurt or

00:31:26 --> 00:31:27

on luck?

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

Well in

00:31:34 --> 00:31:35


00:31:39 --> 00:31:42


00:31:45 --> 00:31:45

to Shree

00:31:48 --> 00:32:05

watts says ask them all Prophet Mohammed some of you are seldom asked to write he says to the Prophet some longer Listen, would you say in a bow Shahada? Who is the best witness?

00:32:07 --> 00:32:10

I knew usually in Russia,

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

who is the best witness?

00:32:15 --> 00:32:15

When he

00:32:19 --> 00:32:25

say, law is the bet the best witness?

00:32:27 --> 00:32:28


00:32:30 --> 00:32:40

bedini would have been a quorum say Allah is he is a witness between me and do

00:32:42 --> 00:32:43

what he

00:32:47 --> 00:32:49

the de

00:32:50 --> 00:33:09

bello and this has been revealed to me so that with it, I may warn you, and whoever it reaches, right, I may warn you, and whoever it reaches, in may come later.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:34

And he had done work for Do you the pagans right the idol worshipers? Do you testify that there are other gods besides a law? When I recited it, I put it in the singular but here it's actually in the plural. Right? you testify that there are Gods other than Allah.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:37

Then say

00:33:38 --> 00:33:39


00:33:44 --> 00:33:58

say, I will never testify to this. I won't testify that there are other gods No. Do you testify? Is that what you think? Because we as Muslims, there's only one Allah right? Allah

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

ash hydia say I will never testify to this and say in what

00:34:12 --> 00:34:23

he did, there is only one God and I totally reject whatever idols you associate with him. What in many bury

00:34:25 --> 00:34:25


00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

to Sri

00:34:40 --> 00:34:43

I have no idea what you're referring to Brother Tim Ward,

00:34:44 --> 00:34:57

but I'm also in Panama to help them make it easy for all of us, but a cologne faecal no idea what you're referring to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the hearts and comets lie back.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

I'm not one to hold

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

against people who write things,

00:35:03 --> 00:35:15

you know, and I have no idea what you're what you're referring to. So many of us have autonomy, easy for every single one of us. So here we see in this verse, Allah Subhana, Allah is really highlighting

00:35:17 --> 00:36:02

our belief as Muslims and simplifying it, right simplifying it, when you say in a commercial Shahada, what is the best who is the best witness? It's a lot. He's a witness between you and I, are you testifying that there are other idols other other gods besides Allah? Because I don't believe in that, and I will never testify that to that, right? And say, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam there's only one God will no matter what you learn word, what in many Bette Midler, Toshi gone, there's only one God, and I totally reject whatever it is, you associate with him. Very simple, very sweet looking Allah Subhana what's ahead and lays it out for us. And you know what, my brothers and

00:36:02 --> 00:36:33

sisters really need to teach this to our children. Right, we need to teach them the importance of the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Too many too many of our children, too many of the children of the Muslims are leaving Islam simply because they don't understand. First of all, the deen they don't understand the differences between our Deen and other, you know, faiths that are out there. They don't understand why we need to do certain things. Right? We need to explain things to them a lot more.

00:36:35 --> 00:37:01

As opposed to how things were for many of I wouldn't say us but many of you I was born and raised here. So I was in the, you know, in the habit of asking questions. And, you know, my mother embraced Islam about a year and a half before I was born. hamdulillah. And you know, she would ask a lot of questions. And so there was constant discussion about, you know, Christianity and Jesus and Mary and you know, the different books that the Bible and the Torah and the Jewish and so on.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:31

We have conversations and discussions hamdulillah it made things a lot easier for me, it may mean it may make things more difficult for some, and we're confusing Allah Subhana Allah knows best. But our children need to know. Our children need to understand who Allah Subhana Allah is, and that we as Muslims should not feel shy should not feel scared to stand up for what we believe in, as we see in the verse here that we just finished, reciting.

00:37:33 --> 00:37:35

Removed verse number 46 of swords.

00:37:36 --> 00:37:43

In verse number 46, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will lead to in love was America.

00:37:46 --> 00:37:48


00:37:49 --> 00:37:52

here, t equal, b.

00:37:54 --> 00:37:56

k fun wasabi food.

00:37:59 --> 00:38:25

Meals the fortune here in verse number 46 surah Han Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Ask them, oh Prophet asked them. He's now speaking again to the prophets on a long run. And he was telling him, Go and ask the moose recon. Go and ask the non believers ask them. Imagine if law were to take away your hearing

00:38:26 --> 00:38:34

your sight or seal your hearts? Who else other than a law could restore it?

00:38:35 --> 00:38:53

See old profit, how we vary the signs, multiple different kinds of signs of also paranoid as greatness and might and power and his blessings upon us. He says see how we vary the signs yet they still turn away.

00:38:55 --> 00:38:56

Alright, so

00:38:58 --> 00:39:23

this verse I decided to to touch upon it today because you probably heard in the news today. If your phone was working fine for you and 100 in LA. But for many of us our phones were not working so well. Right. I from early morning I went to prison and had to call. You know the brother who meets me there. Remember we go in together. And

00:39:24 --> 00:39:41

I was not able to call him I usually get there and if I arrive first or he arrives first we send message to each other, let each other know that we're there. But text messages were not working phone calls were not working. Internet was not working, which means you can't use

00:39:43 --> 00:40:00

Facebook Messenger. You can't use WhatsApp, you can't use signal. You can't use telegram you can't use anything. Basically it says no. You landed in a foreign country with no internet and no phone. Now what do you do? How do you communicate with people? You can walk out of your

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

car and go to a payphone and put 25 cents in and call the person, right. Wrong. We don't find payphones anymore. We just don't see them on the streets and the only place I see the phones are actually inside the prison. I don't see payphones anywhere else. And so somehow Allah you know, it's really interesting world that we live in, where if you take away small aspects of the technology that we use so frequently, like the internet, we wouldn't have this class. Right like prior to this class, I was thinking to myself, okay, as I'm reading through trying to figure out which verses I want to touch upon, I thought to myself here Allah Subhana, Allah says school in Africa mahu summer

00:40:41 --> 00:41:12

como, como Katana, Allah Kudu, Illa, on the radio Bahia de from me, if I must, anyway to Allah takes away, you know, the hearing and the sight or puts a seal on our hearts, who is going to come around and give us the site who will come around in this hearing, who will come around and give us guidance. Some will say, well, doctors can give us site doctors can give you hearing? Yeah, well, it's not the same kind of hearing. It's not the hearing that we typically hear, right? It's not the site that we would typically see.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:23

Allah Subhana we had his restoration of something that is that that has been removed from us, is not like anything else.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:28

And so none can restore it other than Allah subhanho wa Taala had.

00:41:30 --> 00:41:54

And he goes even further to say, if there's a seal that was placed on our hearts, because some will argue, okay, well hearing Well, you might be able to make him make do with I don't know, a cochlear implant or something like that, or, you know, site, some electronic method of, you know, seeing through through accessing the brain and so on. What about sealing the heart?

00:41:56 --> 00:42:00

None can remove the skill from the heart except the loss of handhold.

00:42:02 --> 00:42:11

Because there's no physical barrier there, there's no, there's nothing, you cannot force a person, you cannot force someone to believe in something.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:50

And when it comes to believing in a law, well, that is only through guidance. You can persuade people, you can sort of tricked them, you can influence them to think a certain way to feel a certain way. But to have full belief in Allah subhanho data and submit only Allah is in control of that. And that's bringing us back to our homework. Right? What was the homework that I gave you a few days ago with a memorize a? Verse number eight of Sora, which is what I was it, let's see, who remembers

00:42:51 --> 00:42:56

who remembers which was that you had to memorize as homework.

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

I'll give you a hint of Benelli to

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

bury that data now.

00:43:09 --> 00:43:10

In neck

00:43:13 --> 00:43:25

so Allah Emraan hamdulillah hamdulillah. So, hopefully, everyone did their homework. And hopefully everyone is doing their homework. The homework that I gave the other day was

00:43:26 --> 00:43:29

I don't remember what it was. What was Oh, my I didn't give you homework yesterday.

00:43:30 --> 00:43:34

That's right. I did not give you homework yesterday. Um, good luck.

00:43:45 --> 00:44:30

Wow, Masha, Allah, Allah. So it seems like maybe the network working again, because the messages I sent this morning to the brother that I was telling you about the other IEM they're finally coming through to my phone, just as we're talking about this verse. Who made that happen? Yes, there's people, you know, technicians that are working on the internet and trying to get the network trick once again, but who allows it to actually work in function? Who allows a signal to be transmitted? Allah subhanho wa Taala? Had it created the elements of this what we need to use in order to have that signal transmitted? Right? Well, think of it as water when you're have water. And you know, you

00:44:30 --> 00:44:59

know, you're not supposed to be in the bathroom with a hairdryer, you know, near the sink or the bathtub or anything like that, because it's plugged into the electricity. And so the the electricity is a conductor for sort of water is the conductor for the electricity. Right. And so think of it that also pilots had to put components in this earth on Earth, for us to be able to use to transmit messages and to do you know, sound waves and frequencies and so on. All of that is raised

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

Have a lost hand with human beings realize that it was there and we can use it to our benefit. Okay? So someone's saying that I did give homework yesterday if I did give homework, please let me know what that homework was because I did not write it down. And I usually write down the homework, but I didn't write it down. So let me know in sha Allah that and I'll write that down and remember it. So remember Allah subhana wa tada beautifully here is reminding us that he's made multiple different examples for us to recognize his power in his mind and his strength. Yet they still turn away he says,

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

some whom?

00:45:42 --> 00:45:49

Allah Subhana Allah says, on vocation or suddenly full at home, yes. They still turn away.

00:45:51 --> 00:45:51


00:45:53 --> 00:46:32

saying, sorry, to someone you had an argument with or something like that. No, it was actually slinger to run it. We'll see that right. Right. That was the homework that I gave, and I think it was yesterday, I think it was the day before. Similar to Robin, it was connecting family ties. If there's someone who have a grudge with someone who you are not in contact with, that's a family member of yours or relative, reach out to them. You know, apologize if you need to. That was the homework. If you did your homework, type in number one in the comment section, everyone right now, whoever did the homework type in number one, whoever did not do their homework type in number two.

00:46:33 --> 00:46:34

All right.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:44

Whoever did their homework type in number one, and whoever did not do their homework type in number two or make Toba? You have the choice.

00:46:48 --> 00:46:49

All right.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:02

Let's take one last verse. Okay, let's take one last verse and shot a lot of tat.

00:47:04 --> 00:47:16

And then I have a special announcement to make some please don't leave one last verse and then we have an announcement to make Sha one. Verse number 70. Okay, verse number 70, of soldato.

00:47:26 --> 00:47:37

I will take number 70 there are a few verses I wanted to do as well but will suffice with that inshallah which at first numbers of what that lady in a deco Deena will marry.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:43

To do Nia

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

and the verse goes on, I'll just explain it in order to save time. In short, a lot of dad

00:47:52 --> 00:48:27

told me some of you making doba hamdulillah. Some of you say you did the homework, only a few of you said it. So we'll carry this homework on today. Okay, because I see a lot of number two's. So I need to see number ones tomorrow, okay, the homework is reach out to a family member or a relative or someone who wronged or someone who there's a grudge between you and them and try to rectify that try to, you know, just just clarify things, clear things between the two of you in sha Allah tada verse number 70 of earlier imraan surah.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:43

Allah Subhana Allah says, and leave those who take this faith, Islam, leave those who take this faith as mere play and amusement and are diluted by their worldly life.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:54

Here, Allah is saying, those who take this Deen Islam, as you know, it's just, it's nonsense. It's just play.

00:48:55 --> 00:49:01

It's just fun. Just enjoy right? And they're diluted by the worldly life.

00:49:04 --> 00:49:12

Yet remind them by this the Quran, so no one should be ruined for their misdeeds.

00:49:14 --> 00:49:37

They will have no protector or intercessor other than a law, even if they were offered every possible ransom. Nothing will be accepted from them. Those are the ones who will be ruined for their misdeeds. They will have a boiling drink and a painful punishment for their disbelief. Okay.

00:49:39 --> 00:49:51

The very first part of this verse is important. Allah Subhana Allah says and leave those who take this faith, Islam as mere play and amusement and are diluted by their worldly life.

00:49:52 --> 00:50:00

My brothers and sisters, even as Muslims sometimes we take this Deen for granted. Sometimes we talk

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

aside, even during the month of Ramadan, yesterday, I saw titles of articles and posts.

00:50:08 --> 00:50:21

So Pamela, yes, I fast during Ramadan, people are saying it's not me, right? Yes, we fast during Ramadan, but we could still have a drink, and they're referring to alcoholic drinks.

00:50:23 --> 00:50:41

This is not the way of the Muslim. And for someone to say I'm fasting, but I still drink or I'm fasting, but I'll have dessert with you and fasting and I do this. Basically, you're saying they don't care about the deen of Allah Subhana mitad I don't care about the son of Muhammad,

00:50:43 --> 00:50:52

I don't really care that these boundaries and limitations are put in place by Alon their divine, I'm going to do what I want to do.

00:50:53 --> 00:50:55

I will still call myself a Muslim.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:06

Well, I'm not going to make tech clear of anybody in Islam, we're not supposed to do that we're not supposed to, you know, state, this person is a non believer,

00:51:08 --> 00:51:19

except the person who openly says it or openly declares it themselves. So if someone is claiming that they are believer, we leave that to Allah subhanho wa Taala. While at the same time,

00:51:21 --> 00:51:22

you cannot

00:51:23 --> 00:51:27

not do the things that Allah wants us to do.

00:51:28 --> 00:51:57

And say that we are from the people who do the things that Allah wants us to. A Muslim is one who submits to Allah Subhana Allah and the way that Allah wants us to live, cannot say that we are Muslim, and not submit to the things Allah wants us to submit to, or do the things Allah Subhana Allah wants us to do, or stay away from things that kinda wants to stay away from. Now, that's a general statement.

00:51:58 --> 00:52:00

I need to elaborate slightly here.

00:52:03 --> 00:52:41

Because within Islam, there are things that are considered sinful, that don't take out of Islam. So for example, someone may be a Muslim man, right? A believer, and they, they pray, and they fast, and they do things that they're supposed to do. But we make mistakes, all of us make mistakes, we all make mistakes. But the mistakes that we make should not be those that clearly go against the command of Allah Subhana Allah, and they should not be the mistakes that are mentioned or stated in the Quran or into some of the prophets along with it, who send them more specifically, that take us out of Islam.

00:52:42 --> 00:52:57

Okay, it should not be those mistakes. So we can't say, Oh, one sin is the same as another sin. all sins are at the same level. No, they're not. Some sins are petty, and other sins are major. Okay.

00:52:59 --> 00:53:46

So we shouldn't generalize. And we shouldn't take this Diem for granted my brothers and sisters with the online world. It's very sad to see the condition of the online. I honestly feel going back to the previous verse that we just took. I honestly feel that today, having limited connectivity was such a better day for myself, and probably for all of us. Limited online connectivity, limited abilities to make phone calls and to speak to people. Yes, if it's a job, and you know, it's taken away from it, and it's your livelihood, your son, son, mcss, 10, that it's difficult without I bet as well, I was supposed to make false probably some of you were waiting for phone calls from me

00:53:46 --> 00:53:52

today. And I was unable to deliver. I'm sorry, I just couldn't make those phone calls. Right?

00:53:54 --> 00:54:10

handed in there, there'll be another day. And there will be another opportunity for us to make those phone calls. So before we end, let me share what I wanted to share with you because I know that it's 758. And I want to wrap up by eight o'clock that gives you about six or seven minutes to

00:54:13 --> 00:54:27

learn coton quest quiz is running once again this year and in sha Allah Allah, we have some really good gifts lined up or prizes for those who win the first few spots. So

00:54:29 --> 00:54:33

if you come in the top three, you're going to be winning something that I'm pretty sure you're going to be happy and pleased with and

00:54:36 --> 00:55:00

based on the world that we live in the types of things that human beings desire and want so much these days. So the quest quiz will begin on the 10th day of Ramadan. What is the end quest quiz. For the last two years My wife has been, you know, working silently behind the scenes to offer this to our community over here in Milton. And for those

00:55:00 --> 00:55:53

Want to take part in it? It is a quiz that takes place for 10 days throughout the month of Avon. And every day, those who participate will have to answer five questions related to the course. So every day, there will be five questions that are released. And you have the day until the next day. So you have basically 24 hours to answer those questions from the time that they're released until the time that those questions are closed off. Okay? Questions are not answers to those questions are not received after the time. Once time is closed, it's done. Discipline is important. Okay. So there's discipline, there's hard work, there's dedication, because it's every single day for the middle 10

00:55:53 --> 00:55:54

days of Amazon.

00:55:56 --> 00:56:40

And in short, a lot of the hard work will pay off. You know, the first year we did this, we gave away two Mac books as a first and second place winners and then a bunch of other gifts. Last year, because of the pandemic as things were a little bit different, and because people's businesses were getting hit hard and so on and so forth. we tweaked the gifts slightly, but still gifts were you know, each each one of the gifts for the top, you know, first second third places where you know, a decent priced gift handler or price. So stay tuned on the 10th of Ramadan. The Quran quest quiz will begin in sha Allah to add and

00:56:43 --> 00:57:32

I encourage everyone to take part in it. And sha Allah you will be from amongst those that are successful, whether you win the first, second, third, fourth, fifth places or you win any of the places in that quest quiz in sha Allah who die that if we learn one thing beneficial, then that will be good for us in this life, as well as in the hereafter. Just come along Platonov article local feed calm please do check out. I will be posting in my Instagram but you will have to follow the ICC m dot nilton Instagram account. Okay, so we'll be releasing it there. That's usually the way we did. You don't technically need to follow the account but if you just access it, you'll find it all there

00:57:32 --> 00:58:13

in sha Allah. It's just an easier way to centralize everything. But I will be posting the poster and the details about it on my Instagram as well as the masjid the sonic community center of Milton. Instagram accounts as well. In short, a lot does echo Faden robotica. Local FICO will see all of you tomorrow. Remember to do your homework, remember to do your homework, right? And we said with the homework was to reach out to someone you know who there's ill feelings or bridge between you and you know, try to rectify that or simply reach out to the person and humble yourself for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Tada. That's all the time that we have for today. Just talking low Hayden some

00:58:13 --> 00:58:18
