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


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

really delighted. I mean, some of the more he was set out to be, he'll carry in the heat of solitude autonomously, probably shortly so that he was Sidney Emery who looked at me in the sand, you've got only my brothers, my sisters Sunday morning, come over to walking over to Catherine.

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

So the reason for moving from that side to this side is because of the camera.

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

I guess, because we're nearing the end of the month, and there's a lot more people and movement and stuff around that side. So just makes it easier for the sisters to see it on the TV on their side, insha Allah, and when I sit on that side, then they can't see. And those that want to come over, they can come over to this side. And those that are able to just sit over there and watch it on the TV, you can do that as well. I always like to encourage that you sort of be part of the congregation. I know it's a little bit weird sometimes because we're not used to it. But during the time of the prophets and a lot of our data send them the women would come in, they would sit in the

00:01:01--> 00:01:19

back. The men are in the front and the handler the beauty of our deen is that when we leave our homes, we leave our homes, right we leave our homes in a way that we're supposed to be covered both as men as well as women. And so we shouldn't think bad thoughts of one another

00:01:21--> 00:01:32

you know, even even when when doing your takeoff sometimes you know your things like you know the sisters saying keep your keep their voices down because the brothers doing air tickets might hear you

00:01:34--> 00:01:46

thinking like, okay, and these brothers are staying away from home and now they're in the masjid. And there's women there, they're hearing the voice of a woman, how the law as Muslims, we do what we do for the sake of Allah, right? And we have the ability to control our nests and control our desires.

00:01:47--> 00:02:25

And we shouldn't like think the worst time you know, think like, Oh, something bad's gonna happen, someone's gonna do something wrong. In fact, when it comes to equity calf itself, and I said this before, the women at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were taught that to calf is done in the masjid as well. Right? The wives of the Prophet sallallahu it was something I would do there I took off in the masjid. Right. And so that shows us that as a Muslim Ummah, we should be able to communicate and work with one another, and not think the worst of each other. And no, not here. But in the past that many masajid that have, you know, consulted about a T calf and asked

00:02:25--> 00:02:35

about it, you know, too many of the memes and I was asked as well, a lot of the time they say, Well, where are you that some bad might happen at night?

00:02:37--> 00:03:17

Right in the house of a loss of habitat, you know, like we shouldn't think so that of one another? Or? Yes, yes, of course, there's always the need to be. But we are human beings, right. And we shouldn't feel the need as either Imams or even, you know, people look after massage board members and so on. We shouldn't feel like we need to control people and forced them into certain ways. You know, everyone has to take responsibility for their own actions, right. So thinking that always men and women are doing here to get from the masjid even though it's fully segregated. And you know, the women have their own bathroom, the men have their own bathroom, thinking that something bad might

00:03:17--> 00:03:56

happen is going a little bit extreme, because we're here for the purpose of worshiping Allah subhanho data. We're here for the purpose of seclusion, right here for the purpose of you know, being in a data all the time. And the last thing that we want to do is displease a loss of habitat. Right? And so doing something with someone that's not had any for us is that's displeasing the last panel dialogue. So by default, you know, we should have good thoughts of one another and try to encourage each other in goodness and not always think the worst lesson how to how to make it easy for me, my self and every single one of us who do what is right according to Allah Subhana Allah to

00:03:56--> 00:04:02

Allah, and to have good thoughts of one another and to make it easy for us to purify our hearts especially throughout this time.

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

That remains of this month, and

00:04:09--> 00:04:24

today we're going to be going through the 24th just Quran which means tonight is the 25th month of Ramadan. The 24th will take some executive Zoomer Surah affair, as well as Surah for see that, okay.

00:04:27--> 00:04:38

Begin we'll start right from the beginning of soul of the torturous beginning of the 24th Joe's, which is verse number 32, of sort of Tizona cannibal Italia shows us here.

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

He says, um, this is just working our way up to verse number 36. Allah Subhana Allah says, who, who then does more wrong than those who lie about a loss of habitat and reject the truth after is held not befitting as a home for those who disbelieve and the one who has

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

To those who embrace it, it is they who are the righteous message to those who embrace. They are the righteous. Verse number one they have whatever they desire with their Lord, that is the reward dollars. As such, Allah will absolve them of even the worst of what they did and reward them according to the best of what they used to do. And in verse number 36, Allah subhanho wa Taala then says at some level, we'll be careful in our habitat. Is Allah not sufficient for his servant? They threaten you with other power in this God's besides him besides Allah, whoever Allah leaves to stray, will be left with no guide, right? Whoever leaves, sorry, whoever Allah subhanaw taala leaves

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

to stray will be left.

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

And whoever I want, guys, none can lead a nun can miss

00:05:56--> 00:06:19

is Allah Almighty, capable of punishment? So Allah subhanaw taala is showing here those who disbelieve they've chosen to disbelieve and for them, as Tom has lost power Diana says is that that's the best for them. As in that's his decision, we are not the ones making the decision. Allah subhanaw taala is making the decision we have whatever he decides.

00:06:20--> 00:06:54

Because we asked about that a lot of the time Muslims come and they say, Oh, you you just saying that we're all going to hellfire. We are trying not to go to hellfire. So it's not that like, oh, because we're Muslim, automatically. We've been given like a passport, you know, you get to go straight to paradise. No, we still have to work really hard. So when Allah subhanaw taala says this, it's a message for the non believer also a message for us to make sure that we don't do anything that could end in a punishment from Allah subhanho data.

00:06:55--> 00:07:31

Okay, so that's important for us to keep in mind. Also, when doing Dawa, when giving download or spreading Islam or talking to others about Islam, never make yourself feel like we're admitting that. Make the other person feel as though you are speaking with arrogance, or treating them in a way that you're arrogant. No, we humble ourselves because as the human that we're talking to, we wish for that person to also be blessed with what we have the blessing man to be blessed to go. This

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

feeling that it's like Muslims versus the world.

00:07:37--> 00:07:51

This in another faith versus another group that is is that we're trying to invite them towards what is true and what is right. As kings, Allah calls out to every single one of us to worship him.

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

And he tells us as Muslims

00:07:56--> 00:08:18

will live in a room and Dooney don't assault, those who are worshiping other than Allah subhanaw taala but don't insult what they worship. Allah says Don't insult their false gods. Because in return, they will insult or they may insult Allah subhanho wa Taala worship

00:08:19--> 00:08:24

so all those teaching us respect people's

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

faith or belief

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

but that doesn't mean submit. Okay.

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

Respect them that you are making them feel okay I'm doing something wrong.

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

But what you're what you're telling me to do,

00:08:43--> 00:08:50

and that's best right so you convey the message without putting them down. The reason why I'm saying this is a lot of the time when

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

when people debate religions, they do exactly that they debate awesome panel water either speaks about

00:08:58--> 00:09:28

with renewable Hekmati, well Margarita till Hassan, what deal home bility here accent so when you are going to invite or call people to the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Use wisdom, use good words. Use kindness, right? And if you have to date, right, then if you have to debate and yell at home, being let's see here asset like us, good, calm, don't speak the truth. Don't.

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

Right and don't get into versus them.

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

And sometimes it's best to simply just walk away.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

Sometimes it's best to simply walk away. Why we have nothing good to say. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then just don't say anything. Right? If you have nothing good to say don't say anything. And that's important when talking to other people about Islam, or Muslims try to always have the answer. They're non Muslim.

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

Friends, friends or colleagues or neighbors that they know,

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

we don't always need to have the answer.

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

But we can always go and find the answer.

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

Right? You may not answer when they ask you a question. Don't try to make something up just for the sake of answering them. Tell them say, you know, I don't know. No, I'm gonna go and find out. And I'll bring you the answer. Right and take that as your responsibility. So this is, you know, something Allah subhanaw taala, showing us here, that's

00:10:32--> 00:10:56

the number they choose to reject Allah subhanho wa taala, then for them, their the most befitting place or a bow to them is the Hellfire as a wasp pen with statuses and those who do good deeds, who are writing to submit to Allah subhanaw taala and encourage others this way, those are the people that are righteous. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says that they will have whatever their Lord

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

this is how a las Panatela rewards those who do. And he will absolve them of their evil, the wrong the sins that we have done.

00:11:08--> 00:11:12

Sometimes we will remove them, while at the same reward us according to the best of what we did.

00:11:14--> 00:11:32

According to the best of what we did, right? You tried your best. Some people say I tried to pray, you know, they set and say they set a goal for them. Someone who never ever came to the masjid throughout the month of Ramadan says, I tried to set a goal for myself where I'm going to come for a shot every single day.

00:11:33--> 00:11:39

Or someone else sets a goal even further, then I'm going to stay for Asia and Aisaka of taraweeh every single

00:11:41--> 00:12:16

other person sits down and says I'm going to stay until the end of this hour we have until the email leaves and a person you know when if not feeling good, have a headache some days not able to make it. Don't feel as though you failed Allah subhanaw taala to the best of what we did you try it. Even the days that maybe you were not feeling well, and you didn't come because you wanted to come you still get the reward for having done that, for intending to do it. And so this is how Allah subhanaw taala rewards us. He doesn't just like let it go and be like, Well, you did this, but you did it at 60%?

00:12:18--> 00:12:53

Who's the one to say? 60%? Based on what? Based on someone else's actions? No, you tried your best hamdulillah leave it with Allah Subhana Allah and have good thoughts about Allah have good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala that he will reward me. Like, for example, sometimes in the Arctic, if you yourself, okay, I just want to talk to somebody a little bit. So you know, you spend 20 minutes, half an hour, you might talk to someone, and then afterwards, you might think to yourself, I shouldn't have done, maybe I shouldn't have wasted someone else's time. Maybe, you know, I could have done that I could have finished the job. I could have done this, I could have done that. Okay,

00:12:53--> 00:13:22

how do you try it, you did something to the best of your ability, you didn't intend to come here to waste your time you came in with the intention of performing MTF. As human beings, we are social beings, right? We like to communicate with one another, sometimes there's the need to speak. And if we make that speech about Allah, or if we remind ourselves of Allah subhanaw taala. Talking about, for example, because I'm looking around and I see a lot of, you know,

00:13:23--> 00:13:32

brothers, or I know, probably either in it, right? Or accounting scheme, the only guy who's still in the accounting industry, right?

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

I'm just picking on you're doing is good, good profession.

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

The one who counts money we have to be friends with Right.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

Or, you know, like doing real estate or anything, whatever it is that you're talking about.

00:13:50--> 00:14:28

You might be sitting with a colleague of yours in the same profession as you and you're talking it brings on Islam into it. Just be like, you know, this concept or this thing that we practiced, it's done in our our workplace, what do you think about this? Is this something that's permissible? And I'm not saying just go and have these conversations with your email and stuff, and then amongst yourselves, because as Muslims who work in an industry, it's on your shoulders to know more and more and more about what Islam says about what you do? Right, you should know the ins and outs, what's permissible, what's not permissible, what are the boundaries, right? To what extent can you do

00:14:28--> 00:14:48

certain things and so that's good when you converse with one another and talk about something for the pleasure of Allah subhanho attack that I need to find this out. Now people will say but we're talking about our work talking about professional, don't talk about your work. What it is that you do as a believer that I want to come closer to that through this.

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

I want to come to like for example as an accountant a simple question that's always asked right tax season, people do their taxes. They gave him charity, they get a return they get a receipt in return.

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

I'm now speaking to the accountants, what can I do when I submit this tax receipt? For example, it was a car that I gave, I'm gonna get money back, or am I gonna get a tax break? How am I supposed to go about calculating that now?

00:15:17--> 00:15:27

If I gave $1,000, and now I'm getting back a certain percentage or getting a tax exemption, because of the 1000 that I gave in donations, is my 1000. Really still going out?

00:15:29--> 00:16:08

Because if I take something back in return, so what do I do? Or if I'm getting a tax break, is there a way of me calculating so you ask the account? Is there a way of me calculating what I may get in return potentially, so that I can give that as an extra amount, etc. Right to maximize that, see, so try and figure out is slack, like aspects or things about you in your life, it doesn't only have to be your work, it could be family, you know, you might be sitting down and talking about your children's lives. Pamela, you know, I've been struggling with this. And you go to someone who maybe has children of similar age as you and you say, Look, these are the challenges that I'm facing with

00:16:08--> 00:16:44

if you're ever experienced this before, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, because your intention is I want to be a good father, I want to be a mother, I want to raise our children we can in the obedience of ALLAH SubhanA wa mitad. So everything that we do should be to try to come closer to Allah and you tried your best. And Allah subhana, Allah rewards you for your intention. So the good that you do Allah subhanaw rewards them according to the best of what you used to do. Then he says, Isn't Allah sufficient for his servant? Right? Is Allah not sufficient for us?

00:16:45--> 00:17:15

And that's one thing that we need to always keep in mind that Allah is sufficient for me. Finances are a little bit weak. Allah is strange for me, when our children our concern, and maybe leaving, you know, our guidelines, not saying leading a center leading to what we raised them upon. Allah is sufficient for me that I will turn to Allah and ask him that I will look towards the deen of Allah Subhana Allah, how to deal with it. And

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

especially when it can lead or issues that we're faced with tend to look at the deen to try to find the solution. To apply it to something not realize that the solution in the deen is found in applying something to ourself.

00:17:33--> 00:18:00

Example, Prophet normally has set up, his son didn't believe he taught aboard the ship, his son says no, I'm not going to board the ship. He's like, there's going to be no, nothing is going to save you today. Either you believe in you get on the ship, or you're going to be destroyed. He's like, no, no, don't worry, I'm going to be and then he calls out to Allah subhanho wa taala. But my son, he's from my family, Panama data say?

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

Not from your family.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

It's not from your family.

00:18:07--> 00:18:14

Now, as a parent, sometimes we are going to have to embrace this. As hard as it is.

00:18:15--> 00:18:20

That yes, it's your son, but he's not from your family in the sense that he doesn't believe.

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

He doesn't believe.

00:18:24--> 00:18:45

And we always say that blood is thicker than water. Right? Meaning that our relatives are closer to us than right blood, your relatives, they share blood with us, relative to us are closer to us than our friends friends is the water. So Blood is thicker than water. But there's something thicker than blood, the shahada

00:18:47--> 00:19:05

because even when relatives disobey the water, and who do we find that we're standing next to? Who do we find that we're getting support from? Who do we find that motivation is coming from? Who do we find making dua? Who do we find that our janazah

00:19:06--> 00:19:18

when our relatives, sometimes even our children or parents who refuse to come to the janazah have their relative that passed away, but the Muslims will still go.

00:19:19--> 00:19:44

And the true Muslim is the one who even when they have a grudge, they'll let go of the grudge. The let go of the grudge for who and a son in law will be careful out there for Allah, that Allah is sufficient for me. Allah will take care of this. There's an issue between two people, it's okay. Allah will take care of it. That's still my Muslim brother, my Muslim sister and I say this all the time in matters of divorce.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

Almost every single day I share this example almost every single day, right? That's when people are getting divorced husband and wife, brother, you know, Muslim brother and sister or husband and wife, they're coming into my office and they asked me they're going through a divorce. I tell them

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

You have to remember that despite getting divorced,

00:20:06--> 00:20:37

if you're a believer, and she's a believer, you are still Muslims, you are still brother and sister to one another. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, you're gonna get divorced, you're still going to do accent or you're not going to do injustice, you're going to take care of that person, you're not going to leave someone on the streets, you're going to make sure that they get the help that they need, you're not going to abuse them. And especially when there's children involved, you have to make sure that you respect the fact that your children know this is your mother, this is your father.

00:20:38--> 00:20:53

No one can replace no one can take away that title of a mother being a mother of her children and the father being a father and his children. You will always be the father of your children, you will always be the mother of your children always.

00:20:56--> 00:21:16

And it's important for us to respect that and important for us to teach our children sometimes because of the friction between the husband and the wife, when divorce happens, we find that one of the two or both when the kids are with them backbite non stop and they will put the other

00:21:17--> 00:21:18


00:21:20--> 00:21:31

that is the mother of your children. One who carried them, okay you have issues with her, get over your issues or issues into the life of your children.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

You winter good for you.

00:21:35--> 00:22:05

Still the mother of your child, she sprayed them this still fed them she still held them after them while still doing things for us as well as the husband and vice versa. The husband still went to work and provided the husband still did the chores the husband still stayed awake and looked after children giving them other the break at nighttime, right? So it's important for us to remember that even in divorce, we have to do asset still a believer in a must

00:22:07--> 00:22:20

once upon let's just use the example of the men looking to get married once upon a time the men was looking to get married amongst the community members. The sister who eventually he married to

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

prior to marriage if that brother ever saw not knowing ever that in the future, he would marry her

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

since I wanted him sisters or something that you need.

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

Or you swearing at her? Are you punching her? Are you saying something bad to her? No.

00:22:41--> 00:22:51

She's your sister. She came in says excuse me brother. Can you show me where the bathrooms are? Yes Sure no problem they're right over here. Let me get you some slippers and she goes

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

and the same

00:22:55--> 00:23:04

goes in the bathroom. It comes into the for example and doesn't know accidentally goes in maybe he's I saw this happened the other day. Brother went in and started praying over there.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

Now how's the sister gonna react?

00:23:10--> 00:23:31

Yell scream no brother doesn't know soon as he finishes praying sisters like I'm sorry brother. The brothers section is on this side reserved for sisters right now. Gentlemen, month of October. Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know. Fast forward a few years that person becomes your spouse. Humble everything's nice fast forward a few more years that person now you're expecting

00:23:34--> 00:24:16

them like you did the day that they gave you the slippers and showed you where the washroom was and told you this is the site for the brothers and that with respect with honor still your Muslim brothers sister still have to look after her still have to have to look after him. That's simple. Keep in mind because it's a labor of love will be caffeine. Isn't Allah subhanaw taala sufficient for us? Yes. Someone may have done to us in the past Allah sufficient. Yet they continue with other power this guides him only Titus says whoever Allah leaves to stray will be left with no guide. And whoever Allah none can lead astray is Alana Almighty capable of punishment. Another example I wanted

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

to give you about what we're

00:24:19--> 00:24:32

sometimes when we're going through problems we look for something as I said in the dean to correct the problem that we're that we're looking at, there's a problem with our children. There's a problem with spouses problem with a relatives probably a friend or colleague.

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

Remember should be making dua to Allah subhanaw taala for Allah to correct us.

00:24:40--> 00:24:49

Right our teachers when I was when we were learning the methods and the way we were learning hisbah right like an American Mariela Fernando Mancha.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Chef, Solomon, he taught us he says you shouldn't be making dua to Allah. Oh Allah, correct my speech.

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

correct actions, correcting, you know my words that may be the problem is with me, maybe I can't convey the message. Maybe the person I'm trying to give data to is not embracing Islam, because there's me. I'm not able to word it properly. I'm not able to understand it enough. I don't have enough thick of it. And remember the DUA of Musa alayhis, salam, rubbish rally Saudi WASC li Emery while orchidectomy Lisanti of Cabo Kohli he asks God subhanho wa Taala he says oh Allah is surely Saudi like the fear the butterflies you're feeling right he's gonna go faced with our own remove that from me make me brave is really what you're saying make me give me courage you're asking for

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

all those qualities of strength

00:25:51--> 00:25:54

way as simply a me and make to do easy for me

00:25:55--> 00:25:59

what little rock that Melissa Lee and remove the knot that's

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

that was added you know, it was said to have yeska who Callie

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

they will understand.

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

So he's making dua

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

to Korea correct himself.

00:26:16--> 00:26:55

And so sometimes a relative someone is out of line. Maybe the problem was with us as the parents maybe the problem was with us as the relatives as the children maybe I didn't understand something enough maybe I didn't do something right maybe I didn't provide in the best me I didn't speak correctly to this person. Maybe I didn't respect them enough. But we always tell people why are you why are you respecting me? Right? Arguments happening like oh you're respecting me? Respect is earned if you respect someone else even in an argument they will respect you. Even agreement they will respect you

00:26:58--> 00:27:23

don't we think that's how they disagree with one another bucket in the long run? How many examples do we have so many examples? So many examples. But as they they each earned their respect with each other the respect was given even when they disagree it's like it's Oh, okay. I disagree with you. But we're gonna go with what you're saying.

00:27:25--> 00:27:32

Because he burned that's the way that we're supposed to be a loss of habitat strengthen us and make it easy for every single one of us.

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

Let's move on Charla we'll go to surah.

00:27:41--> 00:27:47

Allah, Torah author, an important reminder for every single one of us Allah subhanho wa Taala that says,

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

I'm gonna shape on my genes. We're not going to Rahim. How the

00:27:55--> 00:28:03

zine would Akita be me nothing more he lies he is in literally the whole theory though.

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

What do you need to share it in I call

00:28:13--> 00:28:15


00:28:16--> 00:28:27

the Inner Inner media he he'll most of the recited this on purpose. Allah Subhana. Allah says has

00:28:29--> 00:28:36

the revelation of this book is from Allah, the Almighty all knowing, he then says off, it is

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

the Forgiver of

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

Allah Subhan Allah to Allah forgives our sins.

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

Before he even tells us

00:28:48--> 00:28:58

what caused the ringtone before he tells us that I accept it's because I'm the Forgiver of sins. He says I'm forgive her sins.

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

So if you know Allah subhanaw taala forgive sins, what are you going to do?

00:29:05--> 00:29:21

To turn to him you don't even look how ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. flips it around, makes it easy for us to understand, right? Allah is the One Who forgives Carlos I'm gonna go to him and ask I'm going to make Toba to him. I'm not going to ask anyone else or anything else. Okay. So he says Vasili

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

will call Billy tobe and the acceptor of repentance. How often do we actually turn to Allah subhanaw taala and repent.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

We shouldn't be doing this.

00:29:33--> 00:29:40

If there's things in our lives especially that we've done and we know that we need to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for forgiveness back and

00:29:42--> 00:29:48

need to ask Allah subhanaw taala for repentance, right? We repent to Him, but we haven't.

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

So think it's a month of Ramadan last few days. Tonight's 25th night.

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

All right, like why do we always think like okay, we have some

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

much time. What if? What if we don't make it past tonight?

00:30:04--> 00:30:08

We spoke about this yesterday. Don't wait Hunter wait.

00:30:09--> 00:30:17

From tonight we should be thinking what have I done in my life that was deserving of Toba. But I still haven't repented

00:30:20--> 00:30:27

have a completed and fulfilled Mitel they wronged someone so much that I need to go and ask them for forgiveness, but I haven't.

00:30:28--> 00:30:42

It's beautiful the other day just before Ramadan I think it was. It was the Friday right? I don't my mom began Friday night. Jumeirah just before Ramadan began, it was also time I was outside the Masjid.

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

One of the brothers stopped me.

00:30:47--> 00:30:55

And he was like, I need to ask your forgiveness, like okay. There's nothing to forgive. He says no, I,

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

I bet bet you a lot

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

less between you and the last panel it is and

00:31:05--> 00:31:13

you asked me there's there's nothing we can do that don't you know, don't worry about it. forgive you. If anything, you know, if there's no need to forgive you.

00:31:15--> 00:31:18

I grant that to you. Right? How hard is that?

00:31:19--> 00:31:23

It's not easy. It's not easy to go to someone and say I was backbiting you.

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

The majority of the time people say what did you say? What did you do?

00:31:29--> 00:31:39

In order for me when like when he said that to me? I was like I was telling myself I want to stay sincere. I don't want to have any ill feelings against him. So I don't want to know what he said.

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

Because to me, that's what I was always taught

00:31:45--> 00:32:09

that it doesn't matter what people said, it doesn't matter. They said something. If someone is coming in asking you for forgiveness granted to them, I don't need to know what you said I don't need to know. And then I just told the brother if there's anything that you feel I need to be advised about. Feel free anytime you can come to my office you can speak to me you can call me up my number. Please advise me I'm a human being I make mistakes we all do.

00:32:10--> 00:32:22

But in my head I was thinking how difficult was it for this brother? And he told me he goes I don't want to start Ramadan with this on my second I just really don't want to start with Amazon with this on my mind.

00:32:24--> 00:33:06

making so much do I have for this brother? Like look how Allah subhanaw taala brings and now I see him I see him like almost every single day right comes to the masjid see him so often. Subhan Allah when we see each other, it's like we have a different connection. I would just see him and give him set up, never really interacted with him. My first major interaction with him was that when he came in, he said that to me. And from then like we've been just getting a little bit closer, that's all spamela Look how Allah subhanaw taala opens our hearts. Sometimes we need to face something in order for something good to come from it and trusted welcome. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is all theory

00:33:06--> 00:33:20

from Obi Wan Kabini Toby Shelley dinner EPUB, even though all of us have one which add it is Shadi delight, God, severe and punishment. He says this right after that he's the one who accepts repentance.

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

Why? Because if we don't repent,

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

there may be a punishment.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

He's reminding us, Shadi Diller.

00:33:32--> 00:33:49

You don't want the punishment you don't want to what was done with that as in store, as we know, and because we know we don't want it. So we will act and do whatever it takes to avoid receiving any punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala the whole and infinite in both

00:33:50--> 00:34:10

of us to kind of water and it gives right what we'll get into hereafter. Alhamdulillah but he puts this straight at the end of including us, he's the one who he accepts the repentance. He's Severe in punishment, but He's infinite in bounty.

00:34:11--> 00:34:28

You've done anything that was wrong, that uniqueness for you need to ask for for, you know, make repentance or that you know that you may have wronged the loss of habitat either in some way shape or form to absolve yourself of that, or remember Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives he gives and he gives

00:34:29--> 00:34:46

you know in level 11 Massoud, there is no God worthy of worship except Him and to Him alone, no return, we will all return to Allah subhanho wa taala. So our focus like I was saying before in the previous surah is with Allah subhana data, he's enough for us.

00:34:47--> 00:35:00

That should be our focus, everything that we do focus Allah subhanaw taala is Allah please do with me right now? Going to the grocery store is not pleased with me right now. Parking at the grocery store. Where did I park that?

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

Park because I just washed my car and it's all shiny and I want to park it in a place in a spot where people are going to see it and go, Wow, that's an awesome car.

00:35:10--> 00:35:16

And then when you go inside and you're shopping, walk around and you sunglasses on and everyone's like National love Look at this guy. He's cool, right?

00:35:17--> 00:35:23

Is that in the pleasure of Allah? subhanaw taala? No. So every aspect of our life

00:35:24--> 00:35:49

when you feel that the slightest amount of your intention, why you're doing something is twisted, changing, just changing intention, like I said, is like the tune button on an old radio, right? You can tweak it to whatever stage at to get the best reception with a loss of habitat. So tweak our internal tensions, and to Him we shall return

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

let's move to

00:35:56--> 00:35:59

since we met let's go to Surah

00:36:01--> 00:36:02


00:36:04--> 00:36:05

take an example from verse

00:36:06--> 00:36:18

34 condition Sharma. Okay. So the first thing that Allah subhanaw taala says verse number 30

00:36:22--> 00:36:30

melody in lieu of Buena all messed up or

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

done xs and

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

xs z mod

00:36:43--> 00:36:54

what a Z, G Ruby engine, one will be a Gen Z let equal

00:36:55--> 00:37:02

to one should say our Lord is Allah Allah Tina call

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

the Mr. Call.

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

What did I say about Stefan that the other?

00:37:10--> 00:37:11

Who remember

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

I said something specific about is the comma. Who remembers

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

this word is DICOM every time you hear it

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

what else

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

I asked you a question. Why did the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turn gray?

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

He said his hair turned gray because Sudha hood and its sisters who are us? Why? Why are those sources a family?

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

I told you

00:37:53--> 00:38:02

is the karma is the karma. being steadfast firm upon Islam and holding it bearing it

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

that's why the hair of the Prophet SAW longer.

00:38:09--> 00:38:10


00:38:11--> 00:38:16

So now we're hearing what in the lady Nakatsu.

00:38:17--> 00:38:26

Surely those who say a Munna our Lord is Allah. We say our Lord is Allah. Yes.

00:38:27--> 00:38:27


00:38:30--> 00:38:40

now if we say that your Lord is a law, that our Lord is Allah, then we have to be firm upon it steadfast, because it's not going to be easy.

00:38:41--> 00:38:53

It's not going to be easy. If the brother is saying I use that the pillar the water is hitting it. But you're standing firm, the water is going around, you're making ripples, you're changing things, but you're standing firm.

00:38:54--> 00:39:03

It's kind of what I was talking about us, we believe. But are we still standing firm? A lot going on long misstep on

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

tetanus Zara hemos

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

Iike the angels descend upon

00:39:11--> 00:39:13

and the angel alert

00:39:15--> 00:39:15


00:39:16--> 00:39:20

whatever you see to be Gen sir which can get into

00:39:24--> 00:39:28

the last panel which addresses the angel on them saying do not fear grief.

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


00:39:35--> 00:39:38

Everyone's curious if food is coming through the door today. As I

00:39:41--> 00:39:48

was saying, Be firm you believe and your firm the angels will descend upon.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

Don't worry things are hard in society. People are giving you a hard time because you're Muslim. You're saying the angels. The angels are around you. You get the help of the ain't

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

Jules? Didn't Allah subhanaw taala help the Muslims in the Battle of butter with angels? Yes.

00:40:06--> 00:40:33

Who, who ended up the Muslims? Were they severely outnumbered? Yes. Was the help of the angels there to be their assistance that they needed from Allah subhanaw taala Yes. So Allah is showing us, we say that Allah is our Lord be firm upon the angels will tend to upon you and the angels will say that awful weather tests done Do not fear Do not

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

rejoice in the good news of Paradise which you probably missed.

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

So upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala makes the angels descend upon us. And then Allah subhanaw taala says next, with the dunya we are your supporters in the world we live in and in the Hereafter, there you will have whatever your soul's desire, right, whatever you want,

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

when it comes to how to manage to hear and feel,

00:41:04--> 00:41:04


00:41:06--> 00:41:11

and have whatever you ask for an accommodation giving most merciful board.

00:41:13--> 00:41:17

And then Allah says, Woman accent will colon men

00:41:24--> 00:41:34

and whose words are better than the one who calls to Allah? Who invites others to a loss of habitat whose words are better than that?

00:41:35--> 00:41:46

Remember, we were saying yesterday, that reciting the Quran, you're reciting the Word of God. Now you're calling people to the word of Allah subhanho data using the Quran using ALLAH SubhanA his words.

00:41:47--> 00:41:50

So Allah is saying to you now in the Quran,

00:41:51--> 00:42:00

and that we're talking about saying, whose words are better than the one who calls to Allah subhanaw taala not no one's

00:42:01--> 00:42:20

which means everything that we say that is inviting towards ALLAH or encouraging to Allah you know, you're sitting when you say your friends should remind you about Las Panatela they should bring you closer to Allah. Those are good friends. So Allah says whose words are better than someone who calls others muscles?

00:42:21--> 00:42:33

Well, I mean I saw they had and does good we'll call that inland you imminent Muslimeen and says that I am truly from amongst those who submit to a loss of habitat then I'm from those who submit

00:42:35--> 00:42:52

well at least they will have some witness a year then I was with Allah says good, cannot be equal and cannot be equal. They are not the same bond to evil with what is best Allah Subhana Allah says if I believe that he here

00:42:54--> 00:43:01

with what is best someone comes to you and says something insulting to you that does not give us the right to turn around an insult them

00:43:04--> 00:43:17

see shows that you are better than them. You say that about me? That's because you don't know me Hamdulillah you get to know each other. May Allah subhana wa Tada bless you with goodness and guidance

00:43:18--> 00:43:27

sees something nicer others always for the guidance of others always identify others in a way that doesn't make them feel like me like I was like

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

brushing them off throwing them out like

00:43:32--> 00:43:33

you need guys

00:43:36--> 00:43:41

we're okay we're good. You're on something else? No, no, no, that's not the way that we call to a loss of habitat.

00:43:43--> 00:43:45

So ALLAH SubhanA infallibility accent

00:43:47--> 00:43:54

onto that evil with what is best of us Panama data says for either lady vena cava Vina or Adele Anton.

00:43:55--> 00:44:04

Yeah, and what do you mean the one you are in a feud or an argument with will be like a close friend.

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

Close friend, because suspected that

00:44:09--> 00:44:19

Allah says the one that you're arguing the one that you dispute, eating with. If you respond in a way that's nice, you'll look at friends, and then you'll come close to one another.

00:44:20--> 00:44:26

And then when Allah says one, you'll acquire one and you'll under ill readiness, although

00:44:28--> 00:44:29


00:44:30--> 00:44:39

do have the nausea Housing Offices, but this cannot be attended except by those who are patient and who are truly it's not easy.

00:44:40--> 00:44:42

It's not easy and what

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

we have been doing

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

it's not fortunate as in like his blessings from the last panel tap those who are always going to bless with this through their patients. So you cannot attain this except if you're going to be patient with it when you're patient with it. Allah subhanaw taala will bless you with

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

Say Allah subhana wa Tada grant us a deeper understanding of the Quran and make it easy for us to come closer to me through it. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to open our hearts to what is true and what is great to remove the evil thoughts and open our hearts towards one another. No loss of higher water and bless us with complete and full forgiveness for these are the days of forgiveness and love and mercy an awful lot of mine that got returned to

00:45:25--> 00:45:32

me on the battlefield. I mean a lot less than a rollback and you know how to do it yourself, which is kind of all kind of cinematic
