00:01:54--> 00:02:05

met cat image of the ghastly dead

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

Betty that he can even

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

buy know but in any case, it was semi or the

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

just turn it off

00:03:05--> 00:03:46

so in first number 114 115 of Surah two an arm Allah subhanaw taala here points out of Aveda he had been told he had to have an old lady and Xena elite woman Kitab Homosassa. You know, a lot of the time when we go through our lives, we think of the best way to do things, right. And then when it comes to challenges or roadblocks that we face, we usually try to figure out how to judge between what is right and wrong or what to do to get through to the next stage or phase of whatever it is that we're dealing with. But the way of a muscle kind of looked at as the best, right? The Way of Allah is the best. So he says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Should I seek a judge

00:03:47--> 00:03:59

other than Allah? Well, he is the one who has revealed for you the book, Allah Subhana Allah has the best of judges, right? We learned that this Friday, when we learned about the name of a wasp, Hannah Montana

00:04:02--> 00:04:42

was very good. Um, Dylan was here, the name of Allah subhanaw taala. And that encompasses a number of things it has mercy is kingship, His Lordship is Rama is forgiveness. All of that is huge and fast, right? And encompasses a lot. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is the best of judges. And so he says, you know, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say to the people, should I seek a judge other than Allah subhanho wa Taala either, and he's the one who's revealed to you the book, and the book within it is the truth. So why deviate from that? Why find something else? And I'm going to just go through the next three verses in sha Allah and then you know, bring it all

00:04:42--> 00:04:42

together.

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

Allah Subhana Allah says,

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

Those who are given the Scripture and know that it has been revealed to you from your Lord in truth, so do not be from those who doubt. We then says what 10 That can be mental health because it can be

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

Word of your Lord has been perfected in truth and justice, nothing can change his words and he is all hearing all seeing. He then says, I'll just go through the English old prophet, right, he tells the prophets on Love It was some of them, if you were to obey most of those on earth, if you obey the people on earth, and do what the people want you to do here on Earth, they will lead you away from the way of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:27--> 00:05:55

And that's the important thing here. They don't follow accept assumptions and nothing but lies. All they do is follow assumption, peace and love. And in verse number 117, indeed, your indeed your Lord knows best, who has strayed from his way and who is rightly guided. So the important thing here is that ALLAH SubhanA, who Allah is the one who shows us our lives. Now we live in a time where people say,

00:05:56--> 00:06:34

just be modern, a little bit, you know, be liberal, like, come on, you know, the review of many, many years ago, you know, you need to like modernize and stop worrying and you know, traditional clothing and worrying about the food that you eat, and stop being so modest, you know, take off the hijab and wear whatever you want tight clothes, I'm talking about brothers as well, not just sisters, right? Brothers, who are wearing, you know, things that are revealing, and we're going to talk about clothing shortly, I'm also going to add is not just referring to the things you see on the outside, but also how we behave. So being honest going to work and not seeking the promotion at

00:06:34--> 00:06:45

work. Because seeking the promotion, that means you're going to have to lie, or maybe cheat or be dishonest, right? untruthful.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

And so because you need to do that you refrain from seeking that promotion and your content was on a wasp habitat as given to us.

00:06:55--> 00:07:02

You know, we have to think that way, that the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Now I have people who come and ask me sometimes, you know, if I do this,

00:07:03--> 00:07:47

it's just a small little thing. If I do it, I'll get promoted. And then the extra money I make, oh, giving sadaqa there's no way, there's no way people who are making a certain amount and then get a 20 30% rate, especially as an example a 20% raise, and they're going to give 20% of what they now earn in South Africa. People don't give 20% It's, it's rare, very rare. And when you think of it, and we're talking about people who are making a lot more, so the 20% Raise could be anywhere between like 50 6070 $80,000 You know, the other day a brother came saying, Yeah, you know, make dua for me, I'm having this issue with, you know, some some things that work. And it had nothing to do with like

00:07:47--> 00:08:16

cheating, or being dishonest or anything of that sort. But it was simply the fact that, you know, there was there was a couple of sales or something that didn't go through, and he was about to lose about 10% of his his yearly income. And then he mentioned, you know, it's a good thing. 80 90,080 90,000 is like 10% of your yearly income. So kinda, you know, for some of us that 10% is more than your European, right.

00:08:17--> 00:08:55

But does anyone give that in South Africa? Someone says, oh, you know, I'll take let me keep it. I'll just do this and then give it no, no one because for 15 to 30 film that the fitna that we've been tested with in this like our own month of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is worth worth. And I was planning to Alice's zoom in and in the nuts he has beautified this world for us as human beings. Zoom in and NSE or Gu SHA two minute visa, it will be in one panel, we will have an ability that then it won't fit on what's the primary data says from the things that he's beautified this world with for us is

00:08:57--> 00:09:26

of course he mentioned you know like for for men, it's women for women, it's men and then children right our children and beautify the world for us through them and we see that we become happy hopefully right? And then almost Palatinus says well panoply upon parenting in a daddy will filter wealth, wealth gold silver, one the final one that you will have you will have so you mentioned things of this world, physical things, right that we enjoy of this world, but he also says

00:09:38--> 00:09:46

a murderer will be known as Xena dunya was paradise as a man one balloon Xena till hieratic dunya.

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

Right that wealth and children are from the things that he beautified this world with.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

But at the same time, the tests that we've been tested with include our wealth and our children

00:10:01--> 00:10:25

And So here Allah subhanaw taala, showing us that we need to follow the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. In whatever aspect of life you want to go out to eat, how you go out, when you go out where you go out what you wear, when you go out who you're with, when you go out how you get to where you're going, what you use to spend on what you're going to buy,

00:10:26--> 00:11:01

right and who you're going to be, and then what you consume while you're there, all of these things is just the surface level of being obedient towards a boss pattern. So I'm going to dress accordingly, I'm going to go out at an appropriate time, we're going to be with people that I'm maharam for, right, and they're allowed to be around me and I'm allowed to be with, I'm not going to speak in decently I'm going to, you know drive and get there in a proper manner, the wealth that I earn to spend, I'm going to earn in that way, what I spend it on is going to going to be highlighted and so on and so on and so on. And that's just going out to eat.

00:11:02--> 00:11:43

What about going to school? What about chilling with friends? What about playing sports? What about doing business? What about calculating our investments? What about calculating soccer? What about saving for Hajj, and the list goes on. And this is why every single aspect of our lives really when we think of it is found in the deen of Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran and the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam every single aspect of our lives. And so when we become confused, we go and revert back to the way of Allah subhanho wa taala. And if we were to follow what people are telling us, or you know, just do this, it's okay. Just do that. It's alright. You know, like, every

00:11:43--> 00:12:00

single day, the topic of interest comes into my office, every single day, someone is asking about purchasing a home and taking, you know, a mortgage and interest. And it's like, the debate constantly back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Why?

00:12:02--> 00:12:36

In my answer, whenever people come in, I tell them straight, they come in and say, you know, I just want to ask you what your opinion is about taking a mortgage and purchasing a house and is that and they say you already know the answer to it. And you know what they say to me? Yeah, you're right. But no, no, they Yeah, you're right part means, you know, the answer. The but part, that is where there's a problem, right. So we need to be people who stand firm upon what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tadesse revealed.

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

And then there are times when exceptions may be made. But the exceptions are not the norm.

00:12:46--> 00:13:05

Say that, again, the exceptions are not the norm. The exceptions are exceptions. So someone says, you know, I need to go to school and in order to go to school, I have no one to finance and this and that. And you know, they, okay, there is an exception for certain things. But that's not the norm.

00:13:07--> 00:13:45

So our dean is very clear on what's happening with that has made it clear and he tells a profit so well, I didn't tell the people this. And the moment that you start to do what the people want you to do, the moment you follow or behave according to the people and I say this for me first before all of you. And this is a reminder of hamdulillah my wife reminds me about all the time you do what you do for the sake of Allah, not for the people. If the people want something from you ask yourself Is that what about what's it could be anything simple, like changing the timing of solder, or you know the length of your hook law or you know what you're doing, if the people are pleased with it. That's

00:13:45--> 00:14:23

one aspect but is beloved pleased with it. If Allah is not pleased with it, then it doesn't matter if all the people are happy, it does not matter. Because what matters is pleasing Allah and when we please Allah subhana wa Tada, the people whose hearts are clean and wants to come closer to Allah, they will be pleased with that decision as well. And the people whose hearts are not clean, they will have an issue with it. It's okay. The only way we're going to educate ourselves about coming closer to Allah in the ways that are obedient to Him is if we go through some struggle, if we talk about the things that are a little bit uncomfortable to talk about, where we discuss the things

00:14:23--> 00:14:33

where we make decisions that the masses are not too happy with, but it is the way for us to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala through being obedient to Him.

00:14:34--> 00:14:42

We'll skip down to verse number 125 125 I swear to

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

Allah Subhan Allah to Allah says,

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

Wherever Allah wills to guide

00:14:50--> 00:14:57

for me, I really love what I do. We actually saw the Rooney is

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

whether it was good

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Those to guide he opens their heart to what

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

he opens their hearts to Islam.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

Whoever Allah wishes to guide, he opens their hearts to Islam.

00:15:18--> 00:15:25

Islam meaning submission to Allah subhanho To Allah through actions after already believing in Allah.

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

So sometimes we put Iman and Islam together. And of course they're supposed to be together but at times we need to separate them to understand what the two are. And I was having this discussion with someone earlier today and he was a little bit confused about it and you know, became clear

00:15:45--> 00:15:53

Eman is our belief kind of always had, we believe in a lot we believe in the angels of books and messengers and so on all that was revealed the six pillars right.

00:15:56--> 00:16:16

And Islam and you believe now we are going to apply the pillars of Islam through submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala in doing what Allah wants us to do. So we are going to be Muslim by praying our prayers of course by believing and following the messenger leaving the loss of habitat and following the messenger or the loss of love.

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

And praying our Salah and giving insect and fasting throughout the month of Ramadan and going for Hajj.

00:16:24--> 00:16:33

So Islam and Iman they go hand in hand where we need to separate them sometimes to understand Allah says whoever He wills to guide he opens their heart to Islam

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

as a deemed

00:16:38--> 00:16:48

submitting to Allah subhana wa Tada through Iman and Islam, the pillars of Eman and the pillars of Islam. He then says But whoever

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

He wills to lead astray to misguide

00:16:54--> 00:17:20

he makes their chest tight and constricted. Their jaws solderable eight year plan how urgent and noble are sorry, another Yasar I do for Salah Allah Subhana Allah says he makes that person feel as though their their chest is like honey tight. Right? And constricted and as if they are climbing up into the sky.

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

Have you ever climbed a mountain

00:17:25--> 00:17:36

and you started to feel like the oxygen level is diminishing? Or you've gotten up in an airplane or you wrote, you know, you know, you get up in a roller coaster and it goes up and behind.

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

And you can't breathe.

00:17:41--> 00:17:50

And all of a sudden, right? Feels like your chest is tight. So the tightness of the chest is the anxiety that people feel

00:17:51--> 00:18:04

anxiety, stress. Worried, constantly afraid of what tomorrow has in store. And Allah subhanaw taala makes that person who disguised their chest tight

00:18:05--> 00:18:08

as though they're being squeezed and going up in the sky. I

00:18:10--> 00:18:16

can't breathe I can't breathe. Everything's normal. Why are you panicking? Everything is normal. You climb a mountain everything's fine just take a break.

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

No, I can't breathe, I can't breathe. Why wasn't Hello data showing us

00:18:24--> 00:18:48

when we are guided everything is at ease. Even when we have nothing even when we go through hardships even when our family you know turns away how many prophets of Allah subhanaw taala to add their families did not believe or relatives family members of theirs did not believe how many so many you think of Prophet Ibrahim added to serve with his father

00:18:50--> 00:18:54

load a data center his family you think of

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

who else

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

nor his son telling him go come aboard believing aboard the ship. He's not gonna know so we hit a Gemini and I'm gonna make my way over to the mountain no believe believe.

00:19:14--> 00:19:20

So no brothers and sisters really when we think of it so Kamala can barely get a job above but inside and

00:19:21--> 00:19:56

Allah Subhana Allah says this is how Allah dooms those who disbelieve, start to worry about everything and worried constantly worried. And a way to remove this worry is to come back to Allah subhanaw taala this the month of Ramadan, the month to come closer to the month of the Quran, open the Quran, even if sometimes we say open up more and recite and you're like, Yeah, but my recitation isn't that good. Okay. Choose your favorite reciter of the Quran. Open the Quran, push play and listen to your favorite resigner recycles verses of

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

enjoy the Koran

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

ponder over it reflect, it really makes us feel at ease. You know, subhanAllah, you spend some times in total, we had night. And it's like you're in another world, transported to another realm, not because you're thinking of other things. But because you're so focused on the air and you're listening to it. Things can be happening around you, and you don't even know.

00:20:22--> 00:20:36

You're zoned out. You don't even hear the children anymore. You're focusing on the ayat of the Quran. You don't notice that something happened next to you that the person next to you, you know, broke their window and moved and someone else stepped in that place and is standing there. You don't even notice it. Because you focused on the

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

on the flip side, sometimes we're standing in Salt Lake, when is this going to end?

00:20:44--> 00:21:21

And we start thinking of work. Start thinking of families don't think they have money. So I think we have tomorrow start thinking of food, starting a word coin, And subhanAllah before you realize it, the imams in such that you're the only person standing in the masjid like, oh, we quickly go down, right? Like this is the focus that we're either having or lacking in our salah. And we need to work hard at appreciating the deen of a Muslim habitat come closer to Allah. And now people ask how can I come closer to Allah? subhanaw taala? How can I increase my ima do lots of good deeds

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

through charity,

00:21:25--> 00:21:42

small charities, not including money, charities that has nothing to do with money, charities that have everything to do with you. You see someone smile at them. You see some along my side and why they call my brother. How are you I haven't seen you in a long time even though you saw them last week.

00:21:44--> 00:22:22

And was like really sad last week. Also kinda I've been missing you so much last week feels like a year ago. They feel good. They feel good. You said something nice to them. This is the way we're supposed to be with each other. That's a setup. You make the person next to you the people around you feel like you know what, I'm being loved by someone. Right? Because how many times in our personal life, even though we have family around us, we don't feel loved. People go home come you know, go home, go to work, go home, go to work, go home, go to work. And then you know, just get up, eat, sleep, eat sleep, and the people who were around, sometimes we feel like the love is

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

diminishing. This is how human beings feel. When you stop and you appreciate the people that are around you of having good enough. You realize that what has really made you rich,

00:22:34--> 00:22:41

rich with people rich in your heart happy with the deen of Allah so countable once I had that.

00:22:42--> 00:22:57

I'm gonna go quickly to verse number 136 to 142. Here on muscle hamlets, Allah mentions a number of different types of shifts, or different things, practices that are done that are that are considered shift and displeasing to Allah subhana wa to Allah.

00:22:59--> 00:23:37

Allah says, The pagans set aside for a share of their crops and cattle. And he created that he created saying this question is for Allah so that they have whether it's, you know, whatever produce they made, or they grew, or whatever animals they have, they say this portion is for Allah and this portion is for those statues or idols or false gods that they worship. And you may have seen it like I've traveled to many, many countries, sometimes you see people offering oranges, sometimes rice flour, you know, fruits, vegetables, different types of foods they're offering to these statues.

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

And I used to wonder to myself, if I'm hungry, and I just go over there and eat the food is it like haram?

00:23:45--> 00:23:54

You know, like, I used to see it so much. I used to live in Malaysia and you'd see all different kinds of things there. And subhanAllah I used to think to myself away from Hungary one day,

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

would it be haram and I wouldn't do it. But I was just thinking Islamically what would be the permissibility of it? If I went and ate from that. I took an orange

00:24:08--> 00:24:27

would it be permissible? And so you know, you think of these things, but the reality is what we're trying to show here is that this is food that is going to be wasted. It's served to a statue an idol that does not eat does not sleep does not breathe doesn't it's like stone.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

Right? It does eat food.

00:24:31--> 00:24:39

Rather than the same time just across the street. You see homeless people right across the street. You come out of the temple right across the street, you see homeless people

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

hungry.

00:24:43--> 00:24:58

The stones that are false gods have luxurious foods that are being given to them fresh milk, people take milk, fresh milk, put it in the silver pots, and they carry them on their heads all the way up the stairs and given to them

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

yet right across the street right outside of people who don't have enough to drink.

00:25:07--> 00:25:20

Where are our priorities? In Islam, Allah subhanaw taala asks us as well to take a portion of our wealth, whether it's food produce, or earnings, take a portion of it known as Zeca

00:25:22--> 00:25:36

Zika. And we take that give to Allah subhanaw taala and waste it, we give it to Allah by sharing it with those that are in need. The categories of people that are most appealing to Allah wants us to give zakat to

00:25:37--> 00:26:26

that is us offering to Allah, we offer to Allah subhanho wa taala. By giving to his creation, He made us a means those of us that have the ability to do so to give from our wealth to those who are in need not to just burn it. I see people burning money as well, they only buy these, they take real money, and they buy fake money. Okay, so you know, like you have monopoly money, fake money, they go and they buy real money. And then sorry, they use the real money to buy fake money. And they offer that to the spirits of their loved ones. Now remember, in December, and I'm saying this with full intent, not to mock anyone. But just to point out because I wasn't counting the data does not like

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

when we make fun of other people, what they do what they believe in and how they worship. I'm not saying this to mock, I'm saying this as an example so that we see and hear and know what people are doing. And they buy this fake money 1000 2000 3000 To send to the spirit of their loved one who left this world because they may need money.

00:26:49--> 00:26:57

And then they light it and burn it and the ashes that go up. That's the money going up here. It's for the soul of

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

how much money is wasted.

00:27:05--> 00:27:18

They even have a little paper for our brands and Lamborghinis and Mercedes you bind them bite it and burn it and it gets sent up the ashes seen I've witnessed pictures of videos as well. I was like this is I never seen this before.

00:27:20--> 00:27:31

It's not just burning incense, they burn things. And they say if I you know, purchase this low paper car made, you know, Mercedes of sending a Mercedes to my loved one. This is what human beings believe.

00:27:33--> 00:27:58

And when you think of what a loss of habitat is showing us in the Quran, we as Muslims, if sometimes if I never shared this story with you, or you you probably experienced some of you have travelled and seen these things yourself, but our children, they haven't seen this stuff. And hearing it is like, oh, people do that. Why? It makes you makes you wonder like, is that really what people think? But yes, it is.

00:27:59--> 00:28:08

Yes, it is. And we have been sent with the truth, to share this truth with others, and that's our responsibility.

00:28:09--> 00:28:48

So Allah Subhana Allah mentions here in these verses, like I said, you know, 136 to 142, and number of different practices of things that people do, they give portions to others, they would even sometimes allocate and these are like the pagans, they would advocate or say, okay, the animal that is pregnant, right, the animal that's in the belly is for the men only not for the women. But if the animal is warm and it's a stillbirth, then we can share that with with the women as well. This is what they would have beaten us pilots at Grant us clarity and guidance and keep us up on the truth. And let's go to Surah two Aronoff, verse number eight in sha

00:28:51--> 00:29:00

Surah are off verse number eight and nine here Allah Subhana Allah says, well, it wasn't really that easy needed help. So,

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

let's

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

move

00:29:08--> 00:29:11

on woman Fatima as he

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

can let the fancy you

00:29:18--> 00:29:19

can be

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

on Allah subhana which is talking about the scale when it was new Yama, even

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

though the scale on that day will be just

00:29:35--> 00:29:59

as for those who scale will be heavy, right. So the weighing will be just those who scale is heavy with good deeds. Only they will be the ones who are successful. Woman referred to now as you know, those who scale is light as in the good deeds is light on the scale. Those are the ones who they themselves have done that.

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

selves for wrongly denying the signs of a loss of Hannibal.

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

They've doomed themselves for wrongly denying

00:30:09--> 00:30:23

the fact that they denied the signs of Allah is a mistake. So Allah says that they wrongly denied the signs of a hostile pattern once had. And remember everything around this as a sign of a loss of habitat is greatness, everything, everything.

00:30:24--> 00:31:06

We just have to sit and reflect and ponder. And so remember, this scale is real. Now, one thing I like to do sometimes is just think of the scale and how much I'm presenting to it. How much will I give? Or how much have I produced of this world to place on this scale? How heavy will my scale be? Now we never know because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, multiplies and increases of course, not only through our actions, but the sincerity of our actions, because remember, we learned this on like the third or fourth day of Ramadan, that we may do good deeds. But if we are not sincere and not genuine, or a person doesn't believe they're doing it for other than the sake of Allah Subhana

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

Allah, then that good deed is wasted.

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

It's wasted.

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

And it has no weight on the scale.

00:31:16--> 00:32:02

And remember the example of the Hadith of the bid banca the prophets of Allah, Allah usnm gives the example of the person who commits sins, after sins after sins in this world. And they will come before a loss of habitat and the day of judgment and the angels will bring the scrolls and 99 scrolls filled with sins. Each scroll going to the end of the horizon, as far as the eye can see nothing on them, except since 99 scores placed on the scale, a person now starts to feel like How is this even possible? Like how does I am doomed, I'm finished, I'm destroyed.

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

I was paired with Allah as the angels to bring the good deeds.

00:32:08--> 00:32:16

And I usually keep a card in my pocket when I do this, but I didn't do it today. And on that card is written ilaha IL Allah.

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

That's it.

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

That's all this written on the card.

00:32:22--> 00:32:30

There were 99 scrolls of sins there the go till the end of the horizon, and one cards written on it.

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

This person believed

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

and it will be placed on the scale.

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

And that one card the biblical will outweigh the 99 schools sentence because the person is believed.

00:32:50--> 00:33:17

And we don't judge. We don't judge Allah as the judge. Sometimes we see people right outside the doors of the masjid committing since literally right outside the doors of the Masjid. Sometimes I'm sitting as you know, and people leave the masjid and right outside it, like, Hold on, let me just close my curtains. I don't want to see it. I want to hear I don't want to know. I don't want to know who it is. I don't want to what I'm hearing I don't like just close the blinds.

00:33:18--> 00:33:23

Like we just finished praying, we leave the masjid and automatically we're committing sins.

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

But don't judge

00:33:27--> 00:33:30

us habit and it knows what's in the hearts of every single one of us.

00:33:32--> 00:33:37

So it's best that we judge ourselves.

00:33:38--> 00:33:49

And that's why I said think of your scale. Think of how it will be how much are we presenting? How heavy will it be on the Day of Judgment? How much are we giving to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

we move on to

00:33:53--> 00:34:03

just highlight this here. Let's go to verse number 31 Verse number 31. Out off Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says

00:34:04--> 00:34:09

yeah, Benny demo who was ina tech.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

That would be MSG. The worku Ushaw 1234.

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

In your

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

leafy, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out to not just the believers, all of the human beings, all of the children of Adam, Adam.

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

Yeah, Benny Adam, every single one of us who seen into commander could be mastered. So now we see dimensioning of Xena. Allah says dress properly when you are at worship. And really if we translate a little more literally who Xena took

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

I take your beautification from every mustard

00:35:06--> 00:35:09

well what I was a panelist is pointing out here first off

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

what beautifies us

00:35:15--> 00:35:18

what is what is the beauty in a human being?

00:35:20--> 00:35:20

soaps

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

beautifies us

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

okay. What else?

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

Clothes

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

yes

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

belief Okay good.

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

What else?

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

Emotions

00:35:52--> 00:35:57

our faces good umbrella. Anyone else? Any sisters?

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

No. Yeah

00:36:02--> 00:36:05

personality. What beautifies us

00:36:07--> 00:36:12

is our belief in Allah Subhana Allah Taqwa Taqwa.

00:36:14--> 00:36:17

So Allah is telling every single human being

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

who is Xena to commando the Masjid.

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

You go to the masjid and you learn about the deen of Allah Subhan with and you learn about the way of Allah subhana wa Tada you will be beautified

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

you will have no doubt in your life

00:36:36--> 00:36:53

you will be from amongst those that pleased those that are content that are guided right. So first off for every single one of us is belief in Allah subhanaw taala Anna was another message that he learned he further to the room and while he

00:36:54--> 00:37:37

was parameter address is very rare. masajid right, the places of worship that we come to and then masajid Illa they belong to a fella tender Ramallah he had that so do not worship anything other than a lot in the massages. Therefore the masjid is a place that only Allah is worshipped in. And that's what we come to the masjid to do. Whether we come to the masjid to learn in a Hanukkah or to pray in sauna or to eat if God or to share something with someone else or to play some sports or do some activities. Point is we've come to the house of Allah subhanho to Ana as a place that believers gather to come closer to Allah in many different avenues many different ways.

00:37:38--> 00:37:51

We come closer to Allah through the masajid it's a place of peace tranquility is happiness, joy community, right? Everyone comes together for what for the sake of Allah and Allah alone. That's it.

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

And so that's the first thing. In addition to that.

00:37:58--> 00:38:00

As believers when we come to the masjid

00:38:02--> 00:38:24

we come to the masjid dressed appropriately handled now I'm looking around that everyone is appropriately dressed. No one's wearing their pajamas. Not yet. Maybe later tonight, some people will be right we come to the masjid. We come dressed appropriately. Even if we're just wearing like, you know, measurable clothing handler it's proper, it's clean. It's not dirty, it's not muddy. It's you know, we look proper. I'm gonna

00:38:25--> 00:38:48

so when we come to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. We come to him closer to him dressed proper. How many times would you be invited to go meet someone like a prince? Right? Or a prime minister, or a president? Or even the CEO of the company that you work for? And you show up in your pajama pants?

00:38:49--> 00:39:04

Does that ever happen? No way? No way. Sometimes we're even embarrassed to show our neighbors what our pajama pants look like. Right? But yet we'll get into our car come to the masjid and stand in solid our pajama pants are standing before Allah.

00:39:06--> 00:39:31

So in our homes, we try our best to you know, dress up nicely you're praying Salah in our homes are a little bit more relaxed. Allah subhana wa Tada says, Who is Xena to command the quilty master. Now the world the whole world is a masjid as well. So if you want to get real super technical, right, as believers we should always be presentable. And that was the way of Mohammed sama la vida usnm

00:39:32--> 00:39:48

Write that he would grow himself comb his beard, you know look after himself put on perfume, smell nice have good o'clock good morals, good behavior, all the things that everyone mentioned is true. But really when it comes to the muscle we come to worship also kind of like beautifies us from the inside out.

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

But also this is telling us when you worship Allah subhana wa and to add that in your Salah

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

your I would I should be covered probably

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

burly,

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

we should be dressed appropriately. We should be people who submit to a law through modesty.

00:40:09--> 00:40:17

And then he says what could overshadow what else was faithful and eat and drink? What Allah subhanaw taala has made permissible permissible for us.

00:40:18--> 00:40:20

Enjoy, have what Allah has given to you.

00:40:22--> 00:41:00

What not to study for, but don't waste, don't be excessive. And that's the problem with the society we live in here is that we waste too much. We are excessive in every almost everything that we do relative to everything, but almost everything that we do. We waste so much on things that we just don't need. You have a pair of glasses, and I'm just looking around. I'm not picking on you or anyone, right it just see that people are wearing glasses. That was the example that came to my mind. We have a pair of glasses, one another pair of glasses. There's something wrong with the ones we have. No, but I want something that's blue, because it's going to match the other clothes I have.

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

What's wrong with the silverbear Silver matches everything, but I want something blue.

00:41:06--> 00:41:20

So I want it I don't need it. So we go to access. Now. Is it permissible, it's permissible for us to enjoy our last panel, Tyler loves to see his worshipers use the wealth that he has given to them.

00:41:21--> 00:41:45

But don't use it in ways that is abusive. How many pairs of shoes do we need, if you're using them good hamdulillah if you're not using them, and they're on the shelf, like I've been, I was invited once into someone's home. And this person was very, very famous, like a really, really famous person and the amount of high heeled shoes that I saw.

00:41:47--> 00:41:58

And apparently the price of them was like in the 10s of 1000s of dollars sometimes for one pair for one pair. And there was a whole room of just shoes, high heeled shoes

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

Yes, Allah has blessed this person with wealth.

00:42:08--> 00:42:47

But we don't need that. We can use the wealth in other ways. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, In Neville law, your equity Masashi Allah doesn't like those who waste we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to make us from amongst those that don't waste the things that we have in our lives. It is called Las Panatela to make us from those who do not waste any food when we eat it if God time, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with goodness and height and bulk and blessings in this life it was in the Hereafter, an anointing added to make us from amongst those that constantly submit to Him and continue to learn about his Deen through searching through the recitation of the Quran. And the

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

study of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in Europe or Alameen somehow somehow about

00:42:54--> 00:42:59

Sufi rustling, which is up from a level from Santa Monica. To la he will back out
