him Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah Allah we didn't kill him after the Salah to attempt to slim up the sharply so that he were Sidley Emery, of that Emily Sani of Cabo Foley brothers my sisters said I'm learning from water, how to walk you over wabarakatu

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

hamdulillah it's the 12th day of the month of Ramadan. So we'll be going through the 12th Joseph the Quran in sha Allah, for the most part we'll be sticking to in fact, we will be pretty much entirely sticking to sewer food. We do go into half of sort of use of in the next use out of sorry, in the St. Joe's, but we'll see how much time we have in sha Allah And if anything, then we'll just go through, you know, certain points of sale or use of tomorrow and shot along to Hanna.

00:00:59--> 00:01:29

Yes, I'm wearing a mask. And that's because my nose has been running today and my nasal cavities a little bit congested. So Hamdulillah, I've done a COVID test. That's negative Hamdulillah. But I've been hearing quite a few people who have tested positive which is found out if another two people right now before salah, who've been with us here for you know, every single night throughout the month of Ramadan, who tested positive last night.

00:01:30--> 00:01:55

Two families were in my office and the day before yesterday, both families tested positive. So just trying to stay a little bit safe. Trying to make sure we get through this month of Ramadan. In one piece in sha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for every single one of us to have good health and strength and to grant us complete and full forgiveness and to accept our efforts and struggles throughout this month of Ramadan. And even after it I mean

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

so it was sort of good. We'll jump right into the sixth verse in sha Allah.

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

He was a

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

genius to him, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, one

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

that you feel will be

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

more here is school wirelend Almost

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

one was done with.

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

See kita

00:02:26--> 00:03:13

will be in a loss of heritable material that is pointing out the fact that he is the one who provides for all of his creation, He says there is no moving creature on earth, there is no moving creature on earth whose provision is not guaranteed by Allah. And he knows where it lives and where it is laid to rest all is written in a perfect record. So my brothers and sisters, our it is our provisions, what is meant to come to us from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will come to us whether we work for it or not. Now that having said that, that doesn't mean that we are allowed to sit back and do nothing. The profits on the longer either US selling them tells us to tie our camel then have to

00:03:13--> 00:03:54

work for in Allah subhanho wa Taala as in work hard. Do what is needed to take whatever necessary means you need in order to provide for yourself, look after yourself, protect yourself, right all of these things are important for us to do physically and then put our trust in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah doesn't want us to just sit back and go, Oh Allah is going to bring food and you know, clutter is going to come to us. We are not from the Gambia or you know, like Madame de SNM, they have lots of heavy data of mercy on their, you know, beautiful fruits of the opposite seasons being given to her in her, you know, little niche where she would go to worship Allah subhana wa Tada, we

00:03:54--> 00:04:34

don't get that, that doesn't mean that it was some kind of metallic can't provide it for us. Okay, while at the same time we say that we don't get it, that does not mean that ALLAH SubhanA metallic cannot give it to us. Allah looks after all of His creation, regardless of where we are. And this is what he's saying. And he knows where it lives. He knows where every single one of us live, where we go, what we do, who we interact with, what we're earning, what we're spending and so on. And he says he knows where it is laid to rest, you will see sometimes is of people who are trapped somewhere right how from just from a loss of Hannah Montana, right?

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

How many times you hear stories in case Oh hiking or you know skiing or you know somewhere and they got stuck whether in an avalanche or in a cave and Rocky Mountain. You know, they get stuck. And Allah subhanaw taala provides for them and they ended up being rescued and they're still alive where human beings would say it's impossible for someone to stay alive. It is possible nothing is impossible. If Allah subhanaw taala wills for something to be it will

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

be okay, that is something that we need to believe very strongly in. And you know, subhanAllah, one of the, one of the brothers was, was in my office the other day, and he was talking about it is in provisions. And he was giving an example of what he told one of his friends that, you know, at the end of the day, whether I work hard or I don't work hard, whether I go all out and you know, change cities and move somewhere else. My it is because from Allah subhanaw taala, it is written, right, it will come to me. So I had to, I just have to keep doing what I need to do. And you'll see Allah subhanho wa Taala brings sometimes, you know, things from places like this is a perfect season,

00:05:39--> 00:05:52

right? All the accountants, they told me they're working really hard. And all the brothers and sisters who are getting a tax rebate or getting some sort of refund, have the loved one that comes in it's like Allahu Akbar, right? Where did this come from?

00:05:53--> 00:06:04

It was our our wealth to begin with, right? We paid it in taxes, and it was returned to us at a later point in time. But Allah subhanaw taala to add up, puts things off, and it is not only in money,

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

it is not only in money, provisions from

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

one to another, like you have good health, that's a provision

00:06:14--> 00:06:21

because the person who doesn't have good health would trade everything that they have for good health.

00:06:22--> 00:06:55

Right? When you say time, time is a provision from ALLAH SubhanA wa to add, some people have time to sit in to learn about the book of Allah subhanaw taala other people say I don't have time, they have the same 24 hours, then everyone else does the same 24 hours with the differences. What are we doing with that time, and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada puts Baraka in time. So for some people, they will get one thing done and finish it off in 10 minutes, and another person will do the same thing. And they're equally skilled, but it will take them a half an hour to do.

00:06:56--> 00:07:10

There's Baraka in our time. And Baraka comes in different places as well sleep. Some people sleep, you know, when brother was telling me during Ramadan, he sleeps two to three hours every single day that he's fine. You know, two to three hours he gets up, he goes to work from the law, he's good.

00:07:11--> 00:07:16

The whole month. Allah subhanaw taala puts baraka and some people sleep.

00:07:17--> 00:07:46

And then some of us we sleep, you know, for 5678, maybe even more hours in the day and we're still tired. We still want more sleep. Right? It's like, oh, I didn't get enough. I need more Palawan. There's Baraka in that food. Allah subhanaw taala gives us food. That's a provision. And in the food as well. There's Baraka. You'll notice sometimes for a thought you eat a little bit in your full hamdulillah you're good. And you can think of food. It's like you fasted all day, and you just had this small amount.

00:07:47--> 00:08:22

And then you see other people they fasted the same amount of hours as us, but their plate is like this big and they finish all of it. 600 Lahug where's that food going? Allah subhanaw taala puts Baraka in certain people's food. Right? And the more we trust, the loss of habitat, and the more he will give to us. In terms of his provisions, we move on to verse number 25 to nine now throughout the rest of what I would we see examples of many of the prophets of Allah subhana wa Tada. So we're going to start with the example or the story of profit nor adding a setup which we find in the sewer,

00:08:23--> 00:08:31

that I've got the person who had the law only in the law, Naveen will be in your headache as salam was sent to his people.

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

And Allah subhanaw taala shows us that he said to them, indeed, I am sent to you with a clear warning with a clear message, right? That you should worship none but Allah.

00:08:45--> 00:09:14

I truly fear for you the torment of a painful day. Of course, that is if they don't worship Allah Subhan went to heaven. But in verse number 27, the disbelieving chiefs of his people, right, the chiefs of the tribe of the town, what did they say? They said, We see you only as a human being like ourselves, and we see that no one follows you except the lowest class or the lowliest of people amongst them,

00:09:15--> 00:09:28

who do so very quickly without thinking. We do not see anything that makes all of you any better than us. In fact, we think you are liars. So what are they saying to know how they can center your human beings?

00:09:30--> 00:09:57

Now that in itself, Allah subhanaw taala did that intentionally. He chose from amongst the prophet from amongst the people, prophets and messengers. So every single one of the prophets and messengers are from human beings. They're not like some super human extraterrestrial creation that came from another galaxy. Allah subhanaw taala chose human beings to be the people that will convey a message to their people. Why

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

why

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

So we can easily understand, Okay, why else?

00:10:10--> 00:10:21

Why did Allah Subhana Allah choose human beings? To be the prophets and messengers of Allah? Why not angels? Why not some extraterrestrial being? Why humans?

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

Okay, we'd be more comfortable interacting with them, okay?

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

Yes

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

good, that whatever Allah subhanho data is showing us through the message that came from the Prophets and Messengers is possible for human beings to do.

00:10:48--> 00:11:30

It's possible for us to pray five times a day because Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam was a human being who prayed five times a day, it's possible for us to fast for 30 days, if it was some extraterrestrial being ours, or let's just use an angel, Allah subhanaw taala. If he sent an angel, we would use an excuse and say we're not angels. It's hard to fast for 30 days, but he fasted for 30 days. So we fast for 30 days, he went in struggled, and so we are able to struggle he stood in the night so we can stand in the night he memorize Quran, so memorize Quran, right, he lower so we can look after the poor, and so on and so forth. So Allah subhanaw taala chose people who were from

00:11:30--> 00:11:51

their people to be the prophets and messengers of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So this was the first mistake that they said that they that they made was that you're just a human being like this. Like, there's nothing special about you. In addition to that, they say that the lowest of people are the ones that follow you. But they do so very quickly without thinking.

00:11:53--> 00:12:06

So they're not really using wisdom. They're not wise people. They're uneducated people. Right? Is that true? No, because I look around here. And I know that everyone in front of me is very well educated.

00:12:07--> 00:12:14

So that doesn't mean that only the uneducated people follow the ways of the prophets and messengers of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:15--> 00:12:58

Right. But that was the excuse that they need. Now, the reality is that sometimes when we become too fixated on this dunya, right, and we rise in status in the dunya, we start to feel invincible. Like someone who's a CEOs, you know, take example of like Elon Musk, right? Someone who's alive today, who's very wealthy, who can put money anywhere and control so many things, you could send a tweet out and control millions, billions of dollars, through seeing a simple statement, you know, like, Oh, I'm switching over to signal. You remember that last year, right? Leaving WhatsApp and switching to signal all of a sudden, everyone was like, Oh, we're going to signal what signal no one knows

00:12:58--> 00:13:25

where it is, what it is, where's it from? Who built it? You know, what's the purpose behind it? Everyone was like, well leave Facebook, leave Facebook leave WhatsApp, right? Everyone is just going wild and crazy. Like, because of because it said something that everyone started to follow. And it was like, Oh, this is good. This is good. But what happens is, there was nothing, no truth backing it. There's some truth to it, I know that it guys are going to like counter it and be like, oh, there's some truth to it. Yes.

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

In the end, everyone just went back.

00:13:33--> 00:14:08

But that shows how someone can reach out and status and say, I don't care what you do, whether you do it or not, this is what I'm doing. And then they go on to do things and everyone just follows. And so also Panatela, showing us sometimes the people who are not considered having status in society, don't undermine them don't treat them as though they're useless and nothing they have done as well. Sometimes their wisdom is better than the wisdom of those who are of higher status. And that is so true, we see that simplicity in life sometimes shows us a more clear way of moving forward in life.

00:14:11--> 00:14:34

And then what they say is, we don't see anything that makes all of you any better than us arrogance. Like all of a sudden, there's this whole element of arrogance that comes in, you know, there's nothing about you that makes you better than us or better than you anyways. So this message you come with, is useless and pointless. And then Allah subhanaw taala shows us you know, that nobody has centum

00:14:37--> 00:14:57

In fact, in Swarthmore, we see that the end of the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala points out that these are the first nation of people that committed ship, the first nation of people on the face of the earth that started to worship others and Allah subhanho wa Taala had. Okay, and we'll see that in the 30 sorry, in the 20/29 Joseph Quran

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

Oh,

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

Um,

00:15:01--> 00:15:22

if we move to verse number 38, Allah subhanaw taala then says, so know how to he said have began to build the ark. And whenever some of the chief or the leaders of the people passed by, they used to mock him and make fun of know how to his setup. And he said, If you laugh at us, we will soon be laughing. Similarly, at you,

00:15:23--> 00:16:01

you laughing at us now, it's okay, you can laugh. But what we're following is divine. And that goes for any nation that followed the message that came from a loss of headwater, that people laugh at us. If people say, oh, you know, you guys are backwards from some other, you know, countries, some other culture, you know, some different way of life, you stop and pray five times a day, why don't you stop and pray, you wash your feet, when you need to wash your feet, you had socks on all day waiting to put your feet in the sinks. Now they laugh at us. But the reality is, is how many like this is good. You know, I got a call yesterday from Halton District School Board, they're having an

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

issue at the elementary schools.

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

Too many Muslim students making wudu before they pray, that's the issue.

00:16:12--> 00:16:34

Too many Muslim students are making woohoo, before their prayer time. So the designated a given a designated prayer space, right. And when it's time to pray a lot at school, too many elementary school students are going and making the move before they pray. And there's a lot of water that's going everywhere, and they're putting their feet in the sinks, this is a problem, we need to solve the problem they're saying.

00:16:35--> 00:16:39

So inshallah have a meeting with them to show them that there's no problem to solve.

00:16:40--> 00:17:14

And there are some ways around it. Yes, maybe the students can, you know, wipe over their socks in order to save time, or maybe even me a mock test, you know, when the students can clean up after themselves, or some sponges or something, but this is what Muslims do to prepare themselves. It's not a problem. It's good. When you know, where people who think of others now if they're leaving the place and invest, that's a different story. But the reality is, is that, you know, people look at us and think you guys are weird to do these weird things, why you don't? Why do you need to go and watch yourself, just go and pray? No, we need to be cleaned before we pray.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

And so people laugh at us now.

00:17:19--> 00:17:54

But the reality is, is that who's going to be laughing later on, we submit to a lot and we take time away from you know, all the luxuries and the pleasures that people have of this world. That of course majority of them are gonna have like gambling, going doing things that are wrong and you know, drinking up and you know, just enjoying life. That's not enjoyment of life. That's actually bringing more harm to life in the life of others. And so in the end, the loss of habitat is showing through the story of Noah data set and they were mocking him, but you know, if you laugh at us, we will soon be laughing at you as well.

00:17:56--> 00:18:16

And you will soon come to know who will be visited by a humiliating torment in this life and overwhelmed by an everlasting punishment in the next. And he says and when a recommend Kane, Allah subhanaw taala says when the flood came, and the oven burst, he calls it the oven the Earth is the oven was penalized and it uses this word.

00:18:18--> 00:18:39

Had daddy died? Yeah, I'm gonna Wafaa to know to know is like you do eat chicken right and endure in Arabic is a tent. No. Okay, so when when someone says this bread was was baked in the tandoor, it's $10 is the same thing just that there's a dial in? Or is it that?

00:18:43--> 00:18:53

I would just say A D. But yeah, it was when we try to call it like the other end of the earth, right? Like this thing that's exploding. You know, when you open the oven. When you're baking home or someone is baking at home.

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

And the oven is on at 350 degrees. And you open the oven, what do you feel

00:19:02--> 00:19:28

like unbearable heat, right and it's contained within the the moment you open it, it comes out the same thing Allah subhanaw taala is using that as an example, that the water was contained within the earth and he tells the oven, the earth to open up and the water just gushed out of nowhere, just like the heat comes out. You're like Where's this coming from? That's how it was Allah subhanaw taala brought the water out from the earth.

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

And we said the last panel data says that he said to know how to take into the ark, the ship, a pair of every species along with your family, except those against whom the decree to drown has already been passed those who disbelieved. So take a pair of every single one of the creatures that you can find every animal, male and female, male and female with every single animal and whoever from amongst beliefs and those

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Who, but none believed with him except a few.

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

How many years did know how to set them call his people to worship Allah

00:20:09--> 00:20:22

950 years of us can retire that says 1000 years less, 50 950 years 950 years.

00:20:24--> 00:20:42

Like when you think of that, and you compare it to today, where you know, some general movements and organizations or even people some debris, right, or habits that go and give Dawa. Sometimes you'll see their videos into like, oh, this year, we gave shahada to 400 people or I remember one year, I was living in Malaysia, and I saw one

00:20:44--> 00:20:50

statement 4000 people embraced Islam through one person that haven't been

00:20:51--> 00:21:01

permitted on. But one of the biggest problems is follow up is usually no follow up. So give the Shahada. Someone says, Should we

00:21:02--> 00:21:37

move on? Like, wait a second, who's going to teach this person who's going to educate these people? What prayer is about what to say in prayer? What time is prayer, how to prepare for prayer, you know, who knows when to pray, all the things to do with Salah and fasting and Islam and all the principles and things that we need to learn? This is important. So it's not about the numbers. And Allah subhanaw taala shows us that in the story of Nora honey has said it's not about the numbers. Because in 950 years that he was calling his people to worship of us.

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

How many people actually did follow him?

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

No, no, 10 or 12? More?

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

Around 80. Very good. Roughly 80 people.

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

Now how many people is that per year?

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

Or decade?

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

Or century? How many people per century

00:22:04--> 00:22:08

it's not even 10 people in every 100 years.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

Not even 10 people in 100 years.

00:22:14--> 00:22:20

Quality over quantity. That's a key principle in our deen quality over quantity.

00:22:22--> 00:22:41

Imagine giving Dawa to people to your people to the just think of the Town of Milton alone. And you living in the Town of Milton with everyone else was here for over 900 years for over 1000 years. And you're calling these people to worship Allah subhanaw taala for 950 years.

00:22:43--> 00:22:47

And in 950 years, not even every house on your street

00:22:49--> 00:22:58

makes you we probably start to question yourself and be like, you know, something's wrong with me, I'm not doing a good enough job. You know, maybe I'm on the Muslim enough, maybe my email is weak, something's wrong with

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

this goes to show that hard work and dedication is needed. And it's not about the numbers. Don't look at the numbers. Even when we do fundraising, I tell people all the time, don't look at the numbers on what will will get if you're sincere and genuine and your community needs something, you will get what your community needs. And if you're not sincere and not genuine, and even if everyone gives so much money, you will never get what your community needs. And I think we see that reality sometimes. Right?

00:23:30--> 00:23:40

Like some communities I remember, I've traveled many places, but just thinking of Canada. I remember I visited one of the cities in Canada and I won't say where.

00:23:42--> 00:23:56

And that city is small, but filled with many, many wealthy people. Like the average salary at the time, the average starting salary was roughly about $300,000 in that Canadian city.

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

That was the average starting salary.

00:24:01--> 00:24:02

Right from what I was told.

00:24:05--> 00:24:42

And the Imam was telling me we have a lot of wealthy people, but there's no Baraka in the wealth. There's no Baraka in the world is like so many wealthy people, and they're still don't have enough money. They go, you know, their vacations or to Las Vegas to gamble instead of going like for hedging on Iran. Right? They would they spend their money on things that shouldn't be spent on just seeking pleasures of this world. And when they do fundraising, they fundraising they get a lot of money. They get a lot of money. Like the masjid they built his house a lot.

00:24:43--> 00:24:57

Crazy, crazy big, really big, you know, in the 10s of millions of dollars. But I remember that, you know, every time I meet him, he tells me there's no book that in the last year, there's no bump in the wealth.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Right so ALLAH SubhanA

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

Word to Allah is not looking at numbers. It's looking at quality over quantity. How well did you fast today? Not how many days are you fasting throughout the whole year

00:25:11--> 00:25:33

someone might be fasting, the faster dealt with NASM every other day fasting, fasting, fasting, but their days of fasting are filled with cheating and lying, and backbiting and stealing and taking advantage of others and not in their prayers and just going about you know, boasting, and you know, bragging that I fast every other day, I fast every other day. And that person is just you know, showing off.

00:25:35--> 00:25:38

It's useless, pointless fast write,

00:25:39--> 00:25:53

quality over quantity, someone else who, you know, is genuine and sincere might fast one day extra in the whole year. And that one day is more valuable than the person who will fast every other day, but boasts about it.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

That one day of fasting.

00:25:58--> 00:26:28

So this is the layer muscle panel to add, you know, rewards us. When you think of the reward on the Day of Judgment. When you see rewards, will the rewards have weight to them? Like the big papa the example of the current that I told you about the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam known as the Hadith of the Bitanga the cart where that one card says that era in Allah and is placed on the scale outweighs 99 schools of sins, each school if it's been rolled goes to the end of the horizon.

00:26:29--> 00:26:33

But that one car to await it. So that shows us that one deed

00:26:34--> 00:26:59

if it's done right can be so heavy on the scale, as opposed to 1000s 10s of 1000s millions billions of deeds that are worth if you just blow slightly like slough from the feather from the pillow and I always ask what's heavier, a pound of stone or pound of feathers?

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

See

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

the trick some of you right?

00:27:08--> 00:27:32

What's heavier a pound of stone or a pound of feathers? They're the same. They're both equal one pound, but which one has more the stone just small stone. A pound of feathers might be a big bank. Is more feathers that are of stone, but that stone is heavier or is is you know in itself. You take one stone and one feather.

00:27:34--> 00:27:40

This stone outweighs the weight of the feather. And all of those feathers can easily be blank. But the stone stays

00:27:42--> 00:28:28

close it doesn't go anywhere. Example of the one good deed that's dropped that's done with sincerely that is you know, heavy on the scale. So know how to hit Send me calls his people he builds the ark. Allah subhana wa Tada says, And he said boarded in the name of Allah. Rock color pebble V Bismillah. Image ha ha ha Masada interrupt de la foto Rahim boarded in the name of Allah will sail and cast anchor surely my LORD is all forgiving, Most Merciful. And then the Ark sailed, right and he went through the waves and the waves were like mountains and know how to he said I'm called out to his son, his son was about to drown in the water, who was away from them. And he says, Oh, my dear son,

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

come aboard with us. And don't be from amongst those who disbelieve and he replied, It's okay that we you know, Gemini, I'm going to swim over to

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

a mountain over there, which will protect me from the water and your headache Hassan cries out to his son and he says today, now Sima Yealm Amin amarilla 1111, Allah subhana wa Bucha addresses today no one is protected from Allah.

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

No one is protected from Allah.

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

His decree is planned and fixed, nothing will waver from it. You cannot escape. And Allah subhanaw taala says, Today no one is protected from Allah's decree except those to whom he shows mercy. And the waves came between them, and his son was among those who drowned. And then Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:29:23--> 00:29:59

to the earth, Old Earth, swallow up your water. Right now the water is going to go back into the earth and swallow up your water and he tells the sky, withhold your rain stop raining. And the floodwaters receded. And the decree was carried out the people who disbelieve that were destroyed. And Allah subhanaw taala saved your headache and set up the ark rested on Mount Judy. Right mount Judy. And it was set away with the wrongdoing people know how to set up called out to his Lord you called out to Allah

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

subhanaw taala he's his son says, My Lord, certainly my son is also of my family. Your promise is surely true. And you are the most

00:30:09--> 00:30:12

honest, the most the most just

00:30:13--> 00:30:16

camel hackneyed the most just have just

00:30:17--> 00:30:23

an Allah subhanaw taala replies to him and says, Oh no, he is certainly not of your family.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

It's not your family. He just believed

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

it's not your family.

00:30:31--> 00:30:40

Now just imagine how painful that is. For any one of us to see our own children, leave Islam.

00:30:42--> 00:30:49

Leave the way of apostle Helen dad. It's not easy, but no hurry Hassan is told by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:51--> 00:31:40

that he is certainly not of your family, he was entirely of unrighteous conduct, everything he did, he did in the displeasure of Allah subhanaw taala so do not ask me about what you have no knowledge of I warn you. So you do not fall into ignorance now know how they sell. Like when I was parliamentarian, it tells you that can I want to apologize for even asking, right? So no, I pleaded with Allah subhanaw taala My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking you about what I have no knowledge of and unless you forgive me, and have mercy on me, I will be of the losers. Right sake. Sorry for asking. Right He accepts what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has given to him. And then nor

00:31:40--> 00:31:49

disembarks and you know, the story continues, and we'll see more of it throughout the rest of the Quran in sha Allah, Allah, that Allah Subhana Allah talks about the people that are

00:31:50--> 00:32:00

a good and his people that people have ADD. And they told who the alayhis salam to bring evidence for his claims. Right? Bring evidence, right? Yes.

00:32:03--> 00:32:08

Yes, yeah, nos wife, Nora, Hannah insulins, wife as well as from amongst them.

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

Then Allah subhana, which says what Allah had in a home who,

00:32:17--> 00:32:38

from the people of their brother, who would show us again that he was from the people, right? I'll show some people of that nation following up on the arugula, Camila in Ireland, he tells his people, once again, all my people worship online, you have no god other than Him, you do

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

nothing but fabricate lies against the law.

00:32:44--> 00:33:07

Then he says, oh my people, I don't ask you for a message. My reward is only with the One who created me. Will you not then understand this was a common message from many of the prophets. On the last panel, it's I know that you'll see mentioned in the Quran, that we don't ask you for anything. We're not doing this for the money. Alright, the prophets and messengers, they were conveying the message knowing Allah is going to take care of them.

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

They're not

00:33:11--> 00:33:35

going to be the kings of the nations of the past people who ruled their people, they became extremely wealthy and they took advantage of the people. They took their wealth, they charge taxes, you know, they they sat on silk and they ate the foods that people would never even see in the talents or in their cities. They ate from the from the most luxurious of foods, and they wore the nicest clothing, it

00:33:36--> 00:33:50

was probably too heavy for us to even write so heavy spam a lot. They had luxuries beyond belief, gold and silver and crystals and diamonds. But the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala were not in it for any of that.

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

They were not there for that at all.

00:33:55--> 00:34:00

They made it clear that we are not seeking any reward from you.

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

Let me move on and

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

we'll go right to

00:34:10--> 00:34:38

I mean, examples ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada talks about who's right and it's the surah is named after him and the people of ADD, in fact in Surah, two fajr What is the loss of Hannah Montana say? Smuggling 100 laheem When Fajr whenever you had in a harsher washer very well water were lady either so healthy that the person or Lizzie hedger and EMTALA ke for Pharaoh law book. Have you heard? Have you not seen one of us pilots I did to the people that I had, modality learning that

00:34:39--> 00:34:44

the people have had they built their homes in mountains.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

And they built their retirement homes on top of the mountains so that they can have a beautiful view and they used to say they built their homes there and they said we will we will build their homes there and that's where we will spend the rest of our lives.

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

And they used to think that they were going to live forever, that they would live eternally on Earth. So they would spend some time you know, working and so on living in the mountains where they carved their homes, and then they would retire up on the top of the mountains.

00:35:16--> 00:35:17

Beautiful view.

00:35:18--> 00:35:25

But when they disobeyed and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada said the punishment who remembers what the punishment was? What destroyed the people of ADD?

00:35:26--> 00:35:32

The strong people that were so big Allah Subhana Allah says, no, no, that did not.

00:35:36--> 00:35:38

Wind that pre did what?

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

Very good. The wind that created a sound, and the sound was so unbearable that it destroyed them from the insights.

00:35:51--> 00:36:11

Right? It was so unbearable. Sound strong sound. We never think that sound would destroy us. But Subhanallah that's a reality. Then Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Surah about salah Haneda Salam and the people with the mood and the story of the camel right the camel that was slaughtered.

00:36:13--> 00:36:56

And they were told not to and to look after it. Then we also see examples from the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam and how he receives this three angels right that three angels come to Ibrahim and in his center and he considers them guests that he roasts a calf right a baby cow they recount like a young cow right? Less than a year. He roast the calf for them nice veal, beautiful meat right tender for them to eat. Then he realizes they're not eating something wrong. So you invited guests, and they don't eat. And then here is eat like yeah, prepared this we hadn't cooked for you here eat and they're not eating like, oh, something's wrong here. Like they refuse to eat the food that we're

00:36:56--> 00:37:12

serving them. Maybe they're here to harm us. And it turns out the reality is, is that they were angels. And they told Ibrahim Allah has said that they were not here to eat. Rather, they're here to discuss who who are they there to discuss?

00:37:14--> 00:37:43

the nephew of Ibrahim alayhis salam, what's his name, loot Allah has set up. They were there to discuss loot Allah, his cell. And they reassured Ibrahim alayhis salam that they came to inform him of the destruction of the people have looked at his system, but that he would not be harmed, because it brought him on to his interview reminds them, you know, from amongst a minute is there. He's there. And they reassured him, don't worry, he'll be fine. He'll be fine.

00:37:46--> 00:37:52

And then they inform them of having a child that Ibrahim alayhis salam would have a child with who

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

was which wife.

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

Sarah, good and who is the child

00:38:01--> 00:38:15

is Huck lay his center. So Ibrahim alayhis salam had one child with Saba and his name was his heart. And then Ibrahim alayhis salam had a child with who with Hajer

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

is very, very good to have that Allah.

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

Then Allah subhanaw taala transitions from verse number 77 Onwards to talk about Luca Alayhis Salam and how he offered his daughters to the men of the city like you know, very them very the women don't get married to the women, but they refused. And the people of the town they came and you know, they they didn't allow a look at the histogram to keep any guests in his home. You can't entertain any guests. You're not allowed to because they felt he would brainwash them and send them on their way that he would make these people come stay in his house. And you know, tell them you know, my people are no good. Just leave this town don't stay here. And so they forbid him from keeping guests

00:39:03--> 00:39:11

in his house. And then Luke Alayhis Salam Of course we know the story and they were destroyed and from amongst them was his wife

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

sorry about that.

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

So we're starting to sneeze and cough on the microphone everyone here's

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

what's gonna be

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

stopped

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

and then sure how you and his people and then Musa alayhis salam and fit our own. They're all mentioned and discussed. And then if we jump right to the end, or near the end of the Surah, on verse number 101 101, Allah subhana wa Tada here tells us of those people and how they're God's like all after saying after mentioning all these nations of people who worshipped it

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

Well some people worship stars and moon and you know fake and false gods things that they believed in Allah subhanaw taala says after all these stories, how their gods didn't save them or their town from the that came from ALLAH SubhanA wa.

00:40:17--> 00:40:38

They used to go and worship and pray and ask for goodness and prosperity in life and provisions. And it did nothing for them that unless habitat it showed how, you know, this is the ultimate end to those who disobey Allah subhanho wa taala. And then tomorrow in sha Allah because we've gone on for 40 minutes already. Tomorrow, we will

00:40:39--> 00:40:45

begin by taking some lessons from the use of sha Allah. So the use of like I mentioned the other day,

00:40:47--> 00:40:48

after four o'clock

00:40:49--> 00:41:03

pm Allah, this is a Surah that has over 1000 points of benefits for 1000 points of benefit within this one surah alone, right and the majority of these points of benefit has to do with family.

00:41:06--> 00:41:18

So it's a surah that we should all read and discuss and look over and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the strength in the health and the ability to continue to do so. I mean, you're gonna need to start from a low failure or solo selling without going and you know,
