hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam o Allah Allah de Karim. They have thought of Salah to automata slim. Rubbish Rockne sadhana us Sidney Emery wa who looked at me Listen, you've got okoli my brothers my sisters said Mr. They come to ye Roberto cattle.
So today in sha Allah to Allah, our brothers will be starting the empty calf shot Allah may Allah subhana wa to accept from everyone. And then last for Tada, bless every one of us with the ability and the strength to be able to perform every tick if, even if it's just for a few days sometime throughout our lives.
We'll talk a little bit about your calf afterwards in sha Allah. Today we'll jump into the 20th juice is the 20th day of the month of Ramadan, and tonight begins the 21st night so the first of the odd nights and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us in the last 10 nights of Ramadan to
tight in our volume of life. Basically, it's time to get serious, no time to play. No time to you know mess around now's the time to turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah day and night to submit to the Prophet sallallahu ADUs would not stay awake all night long throughout the month of Ramadan, except throughout the last 10 Nights. So this month, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would
you know spend the entire weekend worshiping Allah.
This is the time to we've got and of course we look for later to cover tonight could possibly be later to
write a lot of the time people say okay, it's coming, it's going to be on the 27th No, there's no guarantee it's on the 27th of profit. That's a long way alayhi wa sallam said to search for each other in the last month of Ramadan, any of the last 10 Nights? Yes, there are certain narrations that point out, it is most likely at night, the last 10 Nights however the prophets along it with some of them encourages us to search for it.
And to try to find it it's performing a bad throughout all of the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan.
So tonight and shot along to Allah. We of course, of course will be discussing that but we're going right into sort of classes in sha Allah, as well as Surah to landcare boot, so not to cuss us which is the narration of the story. And you'll see that many of the stories of the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala are mentioned within the surah. And then so after the MK boot, which is the spider and we'll talk about that shortly in sha Allah to begin a loss of kind of words, and that begins to cost us with the story of Musa alayhis salam once again, but here he points out a different aspect of the life of Musa alayhis salam. Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about Musa Allah has sent him
in his younger years, right in his younger years from the time that he's born. So the story of Musa who set out as a child, you know, in the womb of his mother coming into this world and the challenges and the struggles that they were faced with.
And how ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada
guided Musa and his setup, we see how Allah guided him throughout his entire life from the time that he was a baby. That was guidance that was coming from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Now that doesn't mean that only Musa alayhis salaam are only the prophets of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah at a specific, you know, guidance from Allah subhanaw taala every single one of us is born upon the fifth Iran, every single one of us is being you know, guided throughout our lives towards what is right and what is true, we have to choose to embark upon that we have to choose to embrace it, and bring it into our lives. And so, ALLAH SubhanA wa COVID to add that, you know, in the story of Musa it has set up
his mother, she was scared because of what the fit our own was doing fit our own was, you know, killing all the boys that were born in the odd years. Okay, so every other year, boys that were born, were being killed. And this is why people ask the question, how is it that one day his son was spared, and Musa Ali has set out and we talked so much about him, you know, the story of him being put in the basket and so on and so forth. And that's because every other year, the boys that were born in those years in the odd years, those were the boys that were being killed, or you know, the command came from their own to kill them. And so how long was born in the in the opposite year,
right the years when boys were being spared
so Allah subhanaw taala shows us how he how he inspired the mother of Musa and his setup, and he told her right she was told to nurse him but when you fear for him
Do you fear for the life of Musa baby Musa is a little baby he's still you know feeding from his mother. When you fear for him and put him into the river, do not fear and do not grieve. Don't be scared. Don't fear don't grieve, we will certainly return him to you and make him one of the messengers. So the mother of Musa Allah has set up she already received glad tidings, good news, that she was going to be reunited with her child, child. And Allah subhanaw taala says, And so it happened, that Pharaohs or pheromones people picked him up only to become their enemy and source of grief, surely fit our own have been and their soldiers were sinful. This was now after Mossad he has
set up his mother, she feared for his safety. So she went and put him into something that would float and allowed him to go. And then he was captured, or he was taken out of the water by the people of fit around, right those that worked for him. And Allah subhanaw taala says that our own his wife said to him, this baby is a source of joy for me and for you, do not kill him. Perhaps he may be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son. They were unaware of what was to come. It's kind of a way to add shows us that her heart was inclined towards keeping Musa and his Sena. And of course he was still a young baby at that time. Now as the years go by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada shows
us, I'm not going to go through all the verses because this is on for the next 5050 verses. Allah subhana wa Tada shows us that Mossad is set up, we grew up, right. And then an incident happened, the incidents where two people were fighting. Okay, one of the benefit, we saw 11 other from the tribe, and they were fighting amongst themselves, loose Island is one of them. And so when they were about to dispute, most of it, he said, I don't happen to be in the area. And, you know, the,
the one who was asked to him called and asked him to come find out, Musa alayhis salam being someone who's strong, very, very strong, like extremely strong, and someone who would stand for justice, he decided who was right and who was wrong. And he just gave one blow one hit to the one who he felt was wrong, and that person fell to the ground dead.
Now, this, of course, is a serious offense, right? You just took the life of someone
just took the life of someone. Now this became known as time went on, right became known, and the following day, or, you know, not too long afterwards, that same person that was there, so Musa has set up. And again, he was in a dispute, and this time he knew he was in the wrong. And so when he saw his setup coming close, he says, Are you going to do to me like you did to that man the other day? meaning are you going to take my life just like you took his life? Right? Are you going to harm me just like you harmed him? And of course now people who didn't know what happened were like, what happened? What man what happened the other day, what took place. And so the rumor, but the news,
right of what took place started to spread very fast. And so Allah Subhana Allah says that they bothered to now destroy or to take Mosul to capture him and to, to execute him right to take his life because he took the life of someone else.
Musa alayhis salam fears for his life. So he flees, right? He flees, and he goes to Meridian. And very he sees these shepherds with their animals. And there's some water and they bring their animals to feed. And he sees from amongst the shepherds, there's two who are women and their sisters. And they are waiting with their animals and not bringing their animals closer to the water, to feed. And so, Mousavi suddenly sees this and being a man of justice, a man who stands for the truth stands for what's right, he feels this isn't fair, right? Those women have a right to feed their animals just as much as the men have the right to feed their animals, and they shouldn't be made to feel as
though they have to wait. They should allow their animals to go forth and to feed as well. And naturally, you know, we always try to encourage that we look after one another. And so Musa has set out he goes and he requests the sisters let me take your animals, I'll bring them forth to drink the water. So they take heat, sorry, they allow him to take the animals forward. And he does he brings the animals and they drink and then we'll say he said I'm returns the animals and then they go to sleep. He goes to sleep he goes up to a tree and he rests in the shade.
Not too long after one of the sisters comes to Musa Agnes and Evan says our father is requesting for you to come and have dinner with us. Right now look how easy some of us will you know do
When it came to marriage, it was really difficult, right? Like how easy it was for both Saturday to set up. He showed courage, bravery, justice, honor, right? He showed good character good moral good values. And so the father of these two daughters, he was like, you know, this is a good men, maybe one of you should marry him. So the invitation was to come to the house of the family in order to meet and greet. And then the offer was made for musante has sent him marry one of our daughters, which one would you choose? Whichever one you choose, and stay working for us? Right? We'll give you a jump door, you can stay here live here, you know, work for us for the next eight years. Right.
Musa has another he stays, he gets married, you know, he stays he lives there. And then after his contract is terminal is up in terms of his work agreement, right. It's our turn that he said he would stay. He leaves with his family to make his way back to Egypt. And then that continues from where we left off. Last time we were talking about Musa alayhis salam and our own and the confrontation, and so on and so forth. So I'm not going to go over that part. We already went through that here. Allah subhana wa, tada highlights the younger years of the life of Musa alayhis salam. And he shows us how sometimes, you know, I like to use this example, especially with younger
brothers I see around me most of you are very comfortable. Anyone here not married? Not married. You're not married? You're not married? Right? 100 right. I'm also 75% Not married.
My wife's here too. So gotta be careful.
Nina is looking at me like I'm gonna tell him me.
Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala data shows us here that sometimes just having good character, just having good character, right? And being the person you need to be. When the time is right along, we'll make it happen. When it comes to marriage, when it comes to anything in life. When the time is right along we'll make it happen. Sometimes we work really hard to achieve something or to get something and we think it's good for us but Allah Subhana Allah says as crochet and we're more wiser, two hippo che and worship. You might think there's something is good for you and you love it. You want it? Well who are Sharona? Could this actually look good for you? And the last panel, it
either says certain talk rubbish, or you might you might feel like you don't like something, but it's actually good for you.
What was your level? It's better for you. You don't like it? You feel like it's not good, but it's actually better for you. And so we have to keep that in mind. That doesn't mean that everything in life we go about thinking to myself, I don't know what to do. What am I supposed to do? Is it this is the data I don't know. It could be played it could be shot, no, no, have a vision have focused, go about trying to achieve what you want. You in your mind. Think to yourself, you know, this is the sister that I don't want to get married to this is the brother that I want to get married to. And you have that vision, focus and you go and you try to achieve achieve it and attain it. And if Allah
subhanaw taala blesses you with it and hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala doesn't bless you with it and hamdulillah it wasn't meant to be something better will come your way in sha Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless us all with the best of this dunya and the best of the Athena. I mean. Now let's get to verse number 56 of Surah two castles, verse number 5052 onwards. In fact, verse number 56, Allah subhanho wa Taala specifically will just tell you that in order to save time, Allah subhanaw taala says in Nicoletta and the human act, that whatever in the law AFD, Manisha or whatever them will be the idea of us panel data says you surely cannot guide whoever you like. But
it is Allah who guides whoever He wills and he knows best who are fit to be guided.
Right on this panel. China knows best who is deserving of being guided
in Nicoletta headin and it is not you who guides who you wish to guide Now sometimes we give that away to many people and it's important that Allah subhanaw taala brings this verse here because then he talks about many of the other prophets and messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala I know that we've seen in the Quran but we also see in the next door as well of us how are we to Allah mentions prophet? Sorry, Prophet nor Hadi has set up around him who should aid the people of Adam ThermoWood. And so what Subhana Allah is showing us here you don't guide the people that you think need to be guided or you want to be guided, whether it's friends or family, relatives or not, it doesn't matter
in Nicolette, let me know how that goes.
setup. We took this example the other day, how many years did he invite towards Allah subhanaw, Taala
and only approximately 80 People believed
after 950 years,
that's less than 10 people per century.
Now when we think of it in our own lives,
less than 10 people per century from a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala, who am I?
That doesn't mean that we stop and we don't give that away. That doesn't mean that we just take a backseat and say, You know what, I'm a sinner, I'm no good. You know, let me just lead up to those who are able to do this job know, as believers we act in the best manner that we possibly can. And Allah subhanho wa Taala guides people through mysterious ways, various ways, right? So I show that the above our tells us about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his character, Canada photo and the Quran, that if you were to look at him, you would see the Quran, his behavior, his mannerisms, the way that he just conducted himself was the way of the believer. We as Muslims are
supposed to conduct ourselves as believers as well. Not just when we come to the masjid all of a sudden you see people rolling up their pants they come to the masjid you know what happens?
Why are we rolling up our pants when we come to the masjid? It's like, you know, I need to be humble. Now when I come to the masjid. What about being humble in or outside of the Masjid? Right? We come to the masjid we make although when we go out, we don't make you know, we leave home we may as well be in the protection of Allah subhana wa Tada. That's important. Right? And so as believers wherever we go, whatever we're doing any circumstance, we conduct ourselves the way that believers are supposed to be, even in things that we would think of to be negative or not clean and pure, like going to use the bathroom. Even using the bathroom. We conduct ourselves like believers conduct
themselves. Right? We learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we enter saying something we exit saying something while we're in there. We don't talk. We don't stay in there for long periods of time. Right? We go in there, we do what we need to do we leave, right? And so on and so forth. And so every aspect of the life of the believer is according to the Sunnah of the Prophet saw what he was.
And it is someone who guides who He wills. So sometimes we have family members, relatives, people that are close to us that we want to be guided and it hurts to see them live a life in the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala right. Sometimes it's parents, sometimes it's children, sometimes it's siblings, brothers and sisters. And we see them living a life that is displeasing to us have more to add in so many different ways. First off, that they commit ship that they don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala as the one true God worthy of worship,
or deity worthy of worship. That in itself is the biggest sin, the most severe, that if one is not going to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala or submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala either in their heart purely insincerely then that's the worst of the worst, right?
While at the same time in addition to that, sometimes we see that we have
who have a loss of how do we to add yet fall short on even the things that we're supposed to do like the bare minimum, like the pillars of Islam, people say you know, someone who believes in Allah prays five times a day pays there's a cap goes for Hajj and fast throughout the month of Ramadan people say mashallah Baraka this is a good believer, this is someone you know, their email is strong, no, that is the bare minimum
that is the bare minimum. Allah subhanaw taala sets that as the minimum level for the ones who believe so, we look at that at people like that and we say mashallah to Baraka you pray you fast ups, okay, you've gone for Hajj Allahu Akbar. This is an amazing believer, an amazing Muslim. No, no, we have to look beyond that. That's the bare minimum. If they're doing that good for them. What else are you doing?
How's your business? How's your
how's your Quran?
How's your day?
How's your sunnah your Noah.
How's your how's your education? How do you deal with people? What's your patients like? That's extra. That's extra the profits on a longer I didn't listen them says that Iman has 60 some odd levels or 70 some odd levels right 73 to 70
at some levels,
the highest level of Eman is what was the highest level of
belief in Allah subhanaw taala testifying, testifying our belief, right and making it clear bla, bla, that we believe in Allah subhanaw taala and living by it, then it comes out. It's every aspect of our lives.
What's the lowest level?
What's the lowest level of our event?
Based on the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam who knows,
he might have other and entirely removing something harmful from like, the way that you could place two people pass a walkway sidewalk and see a banana peel, see something in the way someone might trip over it, you remove it, you see a chair just randomly in the middle of nowhere through the whole way you move it to the side, moving that is actually our belief. And almost, I'm doing that because I believe in Allah.
And my belief in Allah encourages and forces me to actually do that. That because I believe in Allah when I see something out of place, I fix it. When I see something needs to be done, I do it when I see something is harmful. I remove it. When I see someone's in need, I'm going to help them because of my belief and a loss of habitat.
of our belief.
And then everything is in between, right everything else is in between. So my brothers and sisters, it's important for us to continue to increase in our belief in Allah subhanaw taala. Because remember, just because we feel that and hamdulillah we're Muslim and we've been guided Allahu Akbar, we've been guided.
what guarantee do we have that we're going to be guided when we pass away from this world?
what guarantee do I have that I will die and leave this world as a believer?
I do chaplaincy in the hospital. For the most part. It's a time when people come closer to Allah. However, we still do see that people leave a loss of habitat at the last moments of their life.
I remember a sister, an elderly lady, a mother, she wasn't too old. She was
in the hospital for some time visited her and her family, you know, her family reached out.
And in fact, it's not just one person. There are many cases like this, but it's just the one that came to my mind.
And so in a day, typically when you go in to meet a believer or Muslim Muslim who's in the hospital in a hospital bed, and it's the last moments of their life, maybe the last few days, few hours of their life.
They want you to recycle, they want you to make dua for them. They want you to sit there and say the shadow and you know remind them of I was
I went in and I started to speak to her and she just looked the other way.
And I'm standing here and she was just looking at
and I was
is there anything that you need anything I could do for you? Suddenly do and I don't need a lot.
I'll say no, you don't need me I guarantee that you do not need me I'm just offering if there's anything you need is I don't need a lot.
I don't need Quran I don't need to add I don't need any
I'm angry and upset with Allah. This is what she was saying.
Literally about four hours she passed away
and I was there when she passed away and her family was like broken
your whole life you lived as a believer your whole life you raised your children as Muslims, your grandchildren you looked after them and now at the last moment because of some things some memories some thought of something cool for at the last minute
ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada safe and protect us all
that that day was like really hard for me to go to sleep.
It was really hard for me to go to witness and see someone whose entire family is Muslim and they're like please make dua for her please recycle enter Please say something to her. Please try and convince her do something like literally the family was begging me do something do something like she's gonna die She can't die like this in Nicoletta Lehman bankrupt or that cannot buy it.
You can't get it you wish even your own mother and father.
It is only a loss of Hannah Montana who guides us and so we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make our last our entire lives but also our last moments on Earth. Moments of very bad moments.
A belief and moments that we come closer to one loss of habitat.
In verses number 71 and 73 of us from Habitat shows us night and day and this is a little ironic to mention these and when I was revising earlier today I was like okay, I'm gonna mention these verses.
Allah subhanho data says as the or profit imagine if someone were to make the night perpetual for you until the day of judgment, which God other than Allah could bring you sunlight, would you not then listen?
And then verse number 70, to ask them also, imagine if Allah were to make the day perpetual, like daily would never leave, always be daytime.
Imagine if Allah were to make the day perpetual for you until the day of judgment, which God others of what could bring you night to test it. When you're not then it's like, no, we're in the last 10 days of Ramadan. hamdulillah and you know, we see that we the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, used to lead us to bring the night to life, you know, used to be awake at night used to worship Allah subhanaw taala it would stand throughout the whole night. Right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam in the last 10 Nights, you would be awake the whole night,
which is the opposite of what we typically do throughout the year, and almost paneles it was bringing this to our attention. And if the night never left,
who would bring daylight? Imagine if the day never left who would bring nighttime.
And I remember visiting certain places like you know, we live in Canada, just you just go a little bit north of where we are. And so probably last six months day in six months night,
today, six months night, there are Muslims who are fasting, seeing the sun come down and go right back up, and it never actually set. I remember being in the north part of Canada, and they were showing me pictures, you know, after I left, because I was like Subhanallah the day was so long. It's so long. I went to Fort McMurray and I'm like, This is crazy. And the nights I went in the wintertime.
I was in Edmonton in the summer. I was in Fort McMurray in the winter, Fort McMurray in the winter. Subhan Allah, like, you get up in the morning, you pray for budget at like 830
You know, and then you go out and you still don't see the sun, you're like, where's the sun? Like, when is it gonna come? No, it's just like hovering around the horizon.
And then it's like the whole time and you're like, the sun's still not shining. And then like half an hour later, it's awesome. Half an hour later, it's most of time having a shot and the sun was like, it was like just came a little bit of the resin and then just disappeared. It's kind of long. Where's the sun? And I remember being in
in Hong Kong.
My first trip to Hong Kong. I was staying in one Chai. In a Wednesday area. There's lots of shops like typical Hong Kong, right? There's lots of shops, lots of stores, and the shops are like up in levels of buildings. Right? So for example, if you want to go to KFC, I remember KFC seeing the site it was on the 18th floor, you will look to the 18th floor and that's where KFC is right because they don't have much land. So they built up, right. And because they built up all the stories in the shops, they have their signs like outside of their windows on the levels of the building. So at my hotel, I was like it's two o'clock in the morning and bright lights like everywhere shining through
like it's daytime.
And I'm closing the curtains and I'm like I don't understand it's so bright. All day, all night. It's bright, even though it's dark in the sky. But because it's so cloudy sometimes they get like typhoid and stuff like that. So the light from the ground just reflects it bounces off the clouds and comes back down. And for days I was like I can't sleep.
I was there for a conference for a weekend. I'm like I can't sleep it's so bright. I don't understand how you people sleep here. I can't sleep
all these lights shining the Raven all day and all night I
think our data blesses us with day so we can go and do things and we can see at nighttime it's dark we can close our eyes and doesn't bother us we go to sleep.
And you notice sometimes you're sleeping and now those of us who were you know going to be doing guaranteed calf you will feel it right where you wish to Close those blinds on the windows there but a lot doesn't allow us to have curtains for some reason. The management didn't
know them I
think it's gonna shine through but of how good this year they stick gray you know, curtain so it'll be nice and dark and you'll be able to get some sleep after budget in sha Allah right? So ALLAH SubhanA which Allah has blessed us with the
ability to do things think of it also the the eyelids we have,
we can blink and we can even know when we close them and there's light it's still a little bit bright but then we can just put like an eye mask on and hamdulillah it goes away some blessing from Allah subhanaw taala Imagine we couldn't blink.
Imagine you couldn't blink.
And every two minutes you have to square to drop into your eyes because they get dry. Imagine Allah subhanaw taala blessed us with that. And this is why we need to be thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. When he brings us these examples of perpetual date perpetual light, it's a blessing from Allah to be able to have the changing of the day in the night, we move on to Surah two Anka route will take a few examples in sha Allah Surah to Lanka wrote just titled, you know, the,
the spider. In the very beginning, Allah subhanaw taala says, I will be learning in a shape on emerging this will
mean, perhaps even in utero, who I am and what channel Maspero data says. And if I mean, do people think once they say we believe, right? Once we say, you know, what? Do people think that once they say we believe that they will be left without input to test? Do you think that once we believe we're just going to be like humbler? We're believers Allah doesn't test us you only test the non believers no
profits on a wide variety lead either have been well, wherever then up to that.
When a boy loves one of his servants, he tests them. So amongst the believers, we're going to be tested. But among the believers, those who believe more, those whose Iman is stronger, those whose level of belief is higher of what test them even harder.
Either I have the mother, I've done intellia When a mom loves you, because you're coming closer and closer to Him, He will test you even harder and harder. The beauty of it is that your test looks so hard and so unbearable to everyone else. That to you because your Eman is so strong. It's like the average test that everyone else when
you look at it, and it's like how on earth is this brother, this sister able to get through this.
We couldn't bear to go through such a challenge ourselves. But it's because their Iman is higher. We see them and it's like, male must save and protect us and them from this, this is too hard. This is too unbearable. But Allah subhanho data gave it to them because they are able to take this test ought to be challenged with that challenge.
And so just because we believe doesn't mean that we're going to be free from tests, it doesn't mean that we're going to be you know, relieved of that almost penalty to NSS hassy badness and your Turaco think you just get to be left alone, right? When you say that you believe that Allah subhanaw taala says what we left alone, that you're not going to be put to test. We certainly tested those before them. And in this way, Allah will clearly distinguish between those who are truthful and those who are liars. Or do the evil be think that they will escape us how wrong is their judgment. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada puts that there for us, he then continues and says whoever hopes for the
meeting with Allah, let them know that Allah is appointed time is sure to come. Don't rush it.
Our time to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala welcome. There's no need to like, try to speed that up. Take your time, worship Allah subhanaw taala as best as you can. And Allah subhanaw taala says And whoever strives in Allah's way, right, whoever strives only does so for their own good, surely Allah is not in need of any of his creation. Allah doesn't need us to stand in Korea.
Allah doesn't need us to do. Allah doesn't need us to sit here and to learn. Allah doesn't need us to recite the Quran. Allah doesn't need us to give sadaqa Allah doesn't need us to do anything that's good.
We need it.
We need it for ourselves. And we do it to please Allah. Because when we Please Allah, then we benefit from it as well. And so the person or the people that are in need are our own selves. And he says as for those who believe and do good, we will certainly absolve them of their sins.
And I know Kathy Ragnar known said he said to him, Allah subhanaw taala says, We will absolve them of their sins and reward them according to the best of what they used to do. Reward them according to the best of use what they used to do. So we do lots of things, good things, bad things, but those of us who do good deeds and believe Allah subhanho wa Taala absolves us of the bad things and rewards us for the good things that we've
that's how we attain paradise. That's how we get the higher levels and ranks or Latina m&r, I mean a Saudi hottie. Allah subhanaw taala says, and those who believe and do good deeds, they know the feelin Saudi hain, Allah Subhana Allah says, We will surely admit them by us into the company of the righteous like they will be in the company of the righteous, meaning that the nor city the shahada, or Saudi hain, right, the righteous people, the prophets and messengers, imagine on the Day of Judgment being placed into paradise afterwards and then sitting in gatherings with the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala. Imagine meeting Musa alayhis salam, and saying to him, like, you know, telling
me the story that I was
asking them, sitting with them, being with them, seeing who they are finally having that image of who these people were believers that a loss of habitat
if someone is going through hardship, can they ask Allah for Iman? Or can someone else?
Yes, ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to guide someone else, even if they're not a believer. So you can make dua for them to be guided throughout their lives. Okay, after they pass away, that's a different story. But when they're still alive, you can ask Allah and that's what we're here for. We ask Allah to make us from those who help to guide others to Islam to what is true and what is right.
And then verse number eight, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is picked over that Genesis was in Santa bydd of us, which I once again we learned this right, those who are not here we have commanded people to honor their parents, but if they urge you to associate what in Jaha decade it actually can be man they said man a second here and fella to click on the last panel later and it says if they asked you to do something, or they urge you encourage you to associate with Allah subhanho wa Taala partners to commit ship.
Then at that you do not obey them. But he says, Well, they do it daily SLR
Alright, so do good parents, be fair towards them, be respectful towards your parents.
But the moment they ask us to do so pleases the last parameter and that's when we can disobey them. And Allah subhana wa Tada says, either your managerial comfort or convenience to Milan, to me, you will all fall, you will all be you will return sorry to me, you will overturn and then I will inform you of what you use to do, then I will inform you of what you used to do.
And then if we move on to verse number 41, and we'll conclude with this Inshallah, verse number 41 to 43. This is where I was gonna retire that talks about Vitor, and that's what the surah is titled after right? And the last panel italic gives this story as a parable, right, the parable of the mushy coin, right, who seek to
study they don't they seek help from others, right, they seek help from others.
Other than Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, and I must have handled it and it gives us that parable that they are like the spider who builds their whip. Right, the spider builds it away.
And Allah subhanaw taala says that the spider's web is the weakest of dwellings, the weakest of homes, because just some wind or some rain can break it. So the spider thinks that smart and it can catch anything it wants. And it's like this is my home. But really, the spiders home is weak and the loss of habitat is showing that the machine one their belief is weak, that their plan is weak. They think that they're smart, they think what they're doing is right, but it wasn't kind of data showing that it is just like the home of the spider, that it breaks very easily. Right? Their system is not right. It's flooded. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to protect us from evil and from wrong, as
colposcopy to Allah to grant us the best of this dunya and the best.
I just wanted to go over a few with regard steroids itself. I know that people are here some of the people probably aren't and some of them are busy as well. But very quickly with regards TRT conferences sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that
throughout the month of Ramadan, specifically, and also other times throughout the year.
Throughout the month of Ramadan, the Prophet saw a lot of it for me, I ticked off in the last 10 nights and sometimes up to 20 nights. And he did it every single year. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did it every single year throughout the month of Ramadan and you
erotica itself is a symbol of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there's no need to mention anything specific in terms of like an intention that you have to say and if you don't say it, then it's not valid. Your intention is to come into stay. erotica of itself is isolation. For the sake of Allah, it is seeking seclusion while being busy in a garden.
So it's not party time. It's not we're gonna get to know each other. It's not we're gonna sit and have fun and we'll be a family. No, we already are a family and an OMA now Gerety calf is a time when you don't get to know each other.
When you are individual on your own, worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada and there are multiple ways to worship Allah throat prtf Tikka a lot of the time people think to themselves okay, what are we going to do? Like is it just recycle and all day? Well recite Quran if your recitation is fluent and you're able to recite hamdulillah try to finish the Quran in 10 days. That's three Jews every single day and you'll finish the Quran.
Three Jo's. If your recitation is a little bit slow, even if it takes you one hour to read one does,
then three hours and you finished three jobs
or three spots, right? That easy. If your recitation is a little bit slow, then take this time to work on your recitation right take a few verses one idea at a time and perfect it
use that time to do
of various different sorts to recite the Quran also in the empty calf make dua
Big Lots of
another thing we can do in Arabic half is to perfect our prayer Our Salah you know we might say hello, we pray five times a day. Okay, perfect. Those prayers when you're doing air together, like pray all your sunnah before it. Pray all you some that after it. Pray extra Nuffield prayers extra no effing. Right. Do that. As a typical practice, in all of the prayers for the next 10 days, praying that pray extra enough of prayers make dua to Allah subhanaw taala before Salah even right so how about all the Allah were advised by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you knew the reward of coming early to the prayer you would come to it even if you're crying
to be ready for Salah early and it would make you have to have
the time of do as accepted as also before Salah another time you can hunt out to make dua is after the econo before to veer off to round off to Thailand or has accepted
most people don't make dua during that time you just standing there ask Allah whatever you want. Yeah, well bless me with a pious righteousness, right?
Ask a boss parameter.
And also, what else can we do drink or take off is to just sit and think. Just reflect you know, you can go off into your little you know, tent or niche and reflect, think, ponder, where am I going in life? What am I doing? What's the purpose my life? Have I even collected on the Quran? We might recite the Quran. We never got to read the translation. Take your translation read from it. Think of your favorite solos, ask yourself these are my favorite to listen to and my favorite to recite, but did I ever understand what they mean? And I always give the example of sweet Yes. How many times do we as you know, children of DC fans? Right? Well, there's Pakistani as well. We grew up every day,
most of the time swimming Yeah. Seen. Right? You recite? So yes, everyday Muslim. So he asked me? Do we know what it means? No. Does it matter? No. Just read it. Right? Now's the time you're going to learn what does it mean? What is Allah saying? There's actually stories in that Surah that's figured out. Right? So take that time to read through the Quran and understand it as well. And reflect like I was saying think ponder
what is your purpose?
And one thing I want to remind the community as well is not just thinking reflect but also you know, sometimes we say to ourselves in toto
I want to hold the bar when I'm old. You know, my phone, people come and ask tell us which just so we can hold the phone and we want to be able to focus
it's not the time for that whole year to do that is we're here to try and figure out what's in the Quran. But we don't you know, it's such a weird time and like, oh, I want to know what the imam is reading. It helps me to focus. You should have been focusing on that the whole year. Now is your time to stand in Salah and listen to the recitation. Right? And so these are things that we need to
work on ourselves, especially those that are going to be performing IETF
almost pancreatitis as well to come in come on mutton yet Arona in a failure way I want to be memorable for you and Hona and in one cup ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that there should be from amongst you and another group of people who are dedicated dedicating themselves to spreading the deen of Allah subhanaw taala so figure it out now you're performing and I think I've take this time to to promise yourself I'm going to leave it to cough changed and different
and it's a time to really like internalize and focus and turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. Almost kind of without accept from everyone about subhanaw taala bless the entire OMA with the ability to do it cough. May Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for us to also accommodate our sisters in the coming years for him to guff as well, because he had to get for Sisters is actually meant to be in the masjid. So we hope and we pray and we make lots of dua that Allah allows us to be able to grow as a community to provide the services that we need to our community in ways that our community is is thirsty for right is really in need of a mean, which is kind of located on some of those animal dark
