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

I'm humbly loving

00:00:02--> 00:00:17

salatu wa Salaam in carrying out a form of salatu uttama Tasleem prohibition of the Saudi way acidity and many ways that can be the sending of Gabor COVID My brothers and my sisters as soon as they come to value of our council

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

it's a pleasure to be back at it once again, I know this Halaqa was very

00:00:27--> 00:01:02

well attended in the past and we hope that it is once again soon in sha Allah, we know that the first few days are usually like this especially the first day of Ramadan being the day that everyone's body is getting a shock you know, especially without having the coffee or the chai or the caffeine in general. And also, you know, in being a weekend some times it's a little bit more difficult to forget that it is on the weekdays because of work in school we have work in school, sometimes it's easier, and then when we don't and we're at home then you know becomes very lengthy and dry.

00:01:04--> 00:01:35

So Hamdulillah we, for those who don't know 30 is live stream so I had live streaming at the same time which is why I'm using the microphone and hoping that it stays a little bit down in the back we don't hear that pickup sound but also for anyone who's home so I know that not every one of us will be able to attend every single day throughout the entire month of Ramadan but sometimes when we're home with our Fat Bob we might be able to you know log in and turn on our

00:01:36--> 00:01:45

you know devices whether it's YouTube, Facebook and still attend the Halacha hamdulillah from the comfort of our home

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

you just

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

okay

00:02:05--> 00:02:25

good. So in total hamdulillah so far like as I could see you can't see but the attendance is like pretty big online and in LA. So we do encourage everyone to come into the masjid for those of you that are at home feel free to come into the masjid we do have a thought every single day and we have dinner on Saturday nights. And we're gonna be going through one Joseph

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

every single day. So just to give a little bit of you know, a heads up before we start every day we'll try to go through some verses of the June day of Ramadan. So today's the first day of Ramadan. So we're going to go through the first just of the plan and we'll take some verses from the first two is obviously in you know, 45 minutes we can't cover the entire just thought out right it's just there's too much to cover. In fact, if we think of it just reading or just reciting through the gist itself, lengthy, like if you were in recites, especially if you're reciting and not just reading through it, but reciting right? The difference between reading reading is like, having a battle

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

going on in our

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

state but reciting is how do we learn.

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

So we slow it down, right? And Allah Subhana Allah says what TD Quran attom T, recite the Quran and recite it slowly so that we ponder and reflect upon the verses of the Quran.

00:03:27--> 00:03:36

Today inshallah Tada. Being the first one we will take some examples from the first just of the Quran, which comprises of sola to

00:03:37--> 00:03:43

the opening Surah of the Quran and so often puppies, the cow title, the surah of the cow

00:03:45--> 00:04:28

or the chapter cow. When we look through Fatiha I saw two Fatiha number of times, especially here in the masjid after salah, so I'm not going to go into too much detail, but sewer to fatty, it itself is shifa, right, there is pure insulin to fatty herb for us. What we mean by this is that when you recite that first chapter saw that 30 Allah subhana wa into Anna brings goodness who was and that goodness can come in many different forms. It may be that you are having a headache right now because of fasting. And so you put your hand on your head, and you recite Surah Fatiha a few times and you take a little bit of a break obviously we need to take the physical necessary means as well.

00:04:28--> 00:04:50

And you'll notice that also kind of Attalla brings ease to our in addition to that we see that Allah subhanaw taala has put multiple IR throughout the Quran, as she thought now the whole Quran is Shiva. And what I mean by Shiva is cure from illness from ship from disease from you know difficulty in life that we may be experiencing and going through.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

And these ads can be found of course throughout the entire Quran. But so often fatty has specifically the product

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

I think he was on them if he was feeling pain or anything of that sort, he would put his hand in that area wherever he felt the pain and he would recite so often fat. This is good etiquette for when we go to visit someone who's sick. Okay? And I don't know what's going on in the sisters area but if any sisters want to join the Halacha feel free otherwise let's try to whisper Sharma

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

is more offended

00:05:25--> 00:06:06

and so will transition we noticed that so often Fatiha in and of itself is praise of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah praising himself and us fighting it praising also kind of weird. So when we go through the swamp and hamdulillah here have been learned, I mean, it begins with praise, right? Only to have this praising himself and when we say this, that means he's saying it therefore he, you know is teaching us the importance of doing this. And then it transitions into us affirming our belief in Allah subhanaw taala and our submission to Him through our axillary God that he can go do what he yuckiness that aid

00:06:08--> 00:06:20

to you do we worship right you yeah Allah We worship You. What Yeah, can a stallion and it is you who we submit to and seek help and assistance.

00:06:21--> 00:07:08

But also kind of data in this surah begins by praise then transitions into us affirming our belief. And then to do our supplication, ask him Amasa kinda want to add up after we say Yeah, can I really Yeah, can I stand up dinos must have been asking Allah guide us give us a dahlia Dahlia from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah also means like he died of the heart, but he Daya of the way. The way to live life. How do we do things? So as you ask someone like Dini, Mabon guide me to the restaurant, right? Because that's what we think of when our fasting restaurants and food so guide me to the restaurant I need to get there as quickly as possible. That person is giving you a diet as if they're giving

00:07:08--> 00:07:34

you guidance as to how to get there. It's just like our GPS right Google Maps the voice, command or voice of guidance towards the destination that we're going. But Allah subhanaw taala says Yak and Yak and it's the dino Serato Mr. Lean towards that straight path. What is the straight path? So often the dean and I'm laying him up at the mouth to the Arabian water body.

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

The Sirat the way

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

Alladhina Sirata Medina and I'm Talia

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

that you have blessed them with who?

00:07:49--> 00:08:29

The pious the righteous, those who are noble, those who are close to Allah subhana wa Tada, those who are connected to Allah azza wa jal, right, when we think of the pious and noble if you sit and you think in your mind, who are these righteous people? Sometimes we think of someone if we're thinking of a righteous man, we think of someone who has a big beard, someone who was always praying, someone who wears very traditional clothing, someone who might, you know, not even use a vehicle, right? They might not use a phone, right? They might be, as we say, someone who's Zed, someone who's given up a lot of the dunya we usually think of that person as the pious person, the

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

righteous person.

00:08:31--> 00:08:53

But at the same time, actually, we give the example of the sisters what we think of a righteous sister, a lot of the time, we think, you know, has raised children to be obedient to the Muslim hanaway to add someone who, from the outside or you know, they're wearing, they're wearing I, you know, they live a certain lifestyle, that's really a pious person is one who's connected to Allah.

00:08:55--> 00:09:16

And that can none of us can judge. None of us really knows. We might think someone is pious, someone is righteous. They're an Imam, a share for Shay for someone who's righteous pious as a scholar. And the outward appearance shows us that this person is pious and righteous. But deep down on the Muslim Hallertauer knows what they can see.

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

And sometimes we see someone who we never would assume is pious or righteous. Someone who just looks like the average human being in society,

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

who does that are not outstanding. You just don't recognize them. But in reality, that might be the pious person that lives amongst us. That we don't know what they conceal within them. We don't know the sadaqa they give because they give it so secretly that we can't even tell. We don't know how much extra care they're praying, because sometimes we might see them come and pray and leave right away. But they're actually following the some of the profits on a longer going home and praying their Sunday

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

And then praying Nuffield prayers and then making drought and doing a cup. Right and reciting.

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

And we might think of that person as the one who just isn't, there's nothing

00:10:11--> 00:10:32

special about them. Reality is that that person is pious. And that person's connection with Allah could be stronger than our connection with the loss of cannaboids and so we learn not to ever judge anybody you know, the statement is very famous, right? Don't judge a book by its cover. Never ever judge any but never think that someone you know is

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

oh, this is this person they are because of no playbook. So that's how they are.

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

Right? There sincerely to you in connection with Allah subhanaw taala we see it in the example of the woman

00:10:48--> 00:10:54

who all the dog that was thirsty, we all know this example.

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

And both her shoe her footwear.

00:10:59--> 00:11:05

And this was a woman who was good engaged throughout the day in decent act.

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

And she saw that was thirsty. And she took off her shoe.

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

And took her her scarf or her clothing right a piece of her clothing and tied it to her shoe and lowered it down to get water from the well

00:11:22--> 00:11:29

and pulls the shoe out and gives her footwear her shoe to the dog to drink because the dog was so thirsty.

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

And the profits on the Huawei some of them teaches us sheets her Jenner through through that action.

00:11:39--> 00:12:00

We would never think that this person is going to paradise. People would look at someone like that and be like No, no, no, you know, they're probably going to go to John first right? That's usually what comes to mind other people who are sitting there's going to join them a little bit first and then looks right up no profits a lot more ready to send them says she earns her paradise.

00:12:03--> 00:12:24

Such a small kind act was the sincerity of the heart potential. Truly are an example for us that we need to keep throughout the entire Quran. We begin by you know hearing about certain Fatiha but within it, there are lessons that we continue to instill or implemented within the ayat that we hear about.

00:12:26--> 00:12:51

To begin with the channel of China, Allah subhanho wa Taala says beginning to baccarat if anyone has, you know, it's always good to open the Quran and look at the IR if you have the translation with you, if you have it on your phone, you know your phone, you can always go to four m.com Do you ra n.com And then you can click on that I like to use the clear automatic translation the English is a lot more

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

formal who would say

00:12:56--> 00:13:31

if I could use that term normal as in like it's English, right it's spoken English not to say that solutions are not good but it's spoken English so the younger generation you know the adults as well as today and anyone who really you know didn't go through a very traditional schooling system you know will be able to understand it and they'll have a lot some of us are English your English not mine my English is terrible is the worst subject that I ever attended in high school right. My marks were the worst in English and all admit that I had much higher marks in French than English.

00:13:32--> 00:13:41

So at the beginning of Soto Bucha starts this Sula with the rules. Perhaps he says

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

he need a Shunji this 11

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

A m

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

me he he that he can kita

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

See

00:14:07--> 00:14:20

he and I have neither one enemy when you lean on us slid out and when you mess up on your FICO levena You mean

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

of any one meaning

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

a movie on

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

Karina who then became

00:14:46--> 00:14:55

one so, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts with disjointed letters and if LEM mean

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

I live them

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

we can

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

Hold them the two out the disjointed letters because we don't join them together. We don't say LM right? We're LM are alone, right? We say I live them mean it's like saying A, B, C, right? Or

00:15:20--> 00:15:24

thing the word, what's a three letter word? Ice?

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

Right? He said ice

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

high,

00:15:30--> 00:15:35

instead of the sky, we would say ky. So all kinds of data is separating these letters.

00:15:36--> 00:16:03

And the meaning is pegmatite. There are many, many opinions of scholars about the meanings of these letters could be some say that it indicates the paradise Others say that it has to do with protection and so on and so forth. We leave it to Allah subhanaw taala why, because the kamagra added was sort of recited them this way, and he didn't tell us

00:16:05--> 00:16:10

he left them Islam mean, the meaning of these letters is without what to Adam.

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

And then this surah being sewer from Pokhara once again with Allah

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

has given us special in this one, so if through that you're going to recite this entire month of Ramadan, the longest sewer of saltwater Baka, why?

00:16:31--> 00:16:52

Because the prophets Allah Allah usnm says the Duygu tokunbo Hora in the beta that he took up ofI salatu Baqarah later go to ashamed. Laird who ashamed prophets of Allah Allah He was obsessed make your homes as though they are graveyard.

00:16:54--> 00:17:36

graveyard we don't go to the graveyard Terry to pray. We go to the center. It's very it's a very someone who's passed away. Contrary to what we see some people doing in some cultures where people to the grapes, this is against our deen and is considered shift. And what is shift for those who may not know it is worshiping something or someone other than a muscle kind of what's happening to render a partner with Allah azza wa jal and I've seen this I've witnessed this multiple times so good to so many countries. I've even been to masajid where when I went into the masjid, the brothers explained to me that right in front of the Muhammad of where the event is standing, there's a grave

00:17:36--> 00:18:22

of a pious person that's buried there. And so we were advised when we go to these, you know, trips on different countries that we've that I've been to, to understand and know what goes on, understand the people of the land that you're traveling to understand their beliefs understand their culture of VR, because understanding them is helping us in our D. Like, how are we supposed to know, asking and finding out and then once we find out, would it be permissible for us to pray there? No. Would it be permissible for us to face that grave and to pray our prayers daily five times a day? No. This is not something that we are meant to do. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

make sure that the masjid is not facing a cemetery.

00:18:29--> 00:18:46

The Masjid is not facing a cemetery, because as Muslims we don't even want to give the impression to someone else. Even though we know we don't worship the graves. We don't worship the dead. But we don't want to give the impression to someone who is not Muslim that we are worshipping a grave. Right? Yes.

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

Can he was in the middle of a question? So is it to do with the class or something else?

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

How can

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

we just Yeah, it's it's frustrating. It is very frustrating. I know. So the brothers asking for those who can't hear why is it that as the brother says, he feels that we are the worst people on Earth. The reality is we are not. We might behave you might see actions. People that show as that is the case but Allah Subhana Allah says, come to your own material reject us.

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

Right

00:20:03--> 00:20:15

I just think you're the worst because this is the one that will make your head swallow that we become better Allah make it easy for every single one of us. I mean, I mean, have the love? Yes, you're saying

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

Good question. So our I forgot your name

00:20:24--> 00:20:38

Shabazz Chavez is asking, does that mean that a cemetery can't be even 10 years away from the Masjid? Well eat as long as it's not immediately in front of the masjid or immediately in front of you, wherever you're printing.

00:20:39--> 00:21:16

If it's further away, there's things in between that's different, right? Obviously, if we draw a straight line in a direction, or even in the direction of a kippah from here, I'm sure we're gonna, you know, go through many cemeteries until we reach the fibula, right? And remember, we're not praying to them good luck or praying towards the kingdom. That's a specific direction. And so this surah in itself is important because Allah Subhana Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says don't think your homes as though they're graveyards as in doing that do acts of worship the people in the grave they're not alive worshiping their dead link in the graves experiencing that

00:21:16--> 00:21:30

like the Bossa which is for a topic for another day. And so he says, for eternal beta lady took her ofis water baccarat Verily the home that Summa tillbaka is recited in

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

law yet who knows Shavon Shavon will not enter that.

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

Now, this is important, because a lot of things to ourselves, we're dating.

00:21:43--> 00:22:12

And we take it for granted that Alhamdulillah a puppy, everything's good with me. I have no issues. Life is great. I have an awesome job money's coming in. Kids are well, company, everything's good. And then out of nowhere, something changes. And then we start to wonder to ourselves, and a lot of the time what happens is people come in, and they come to me and they ask, I have this problem. I think it's gin related. I think it's sound or magic related. What do I do?

00:22:13--> 00:22:22

And the first question is that Imams always will ask to the people who come in is Tell me about yourself. Tell me about your home. Tell me about your life.

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

And they say oh, you know, you know this is what I do our house you know? Okay, what type of decorations do you have in your house? Explain your house to me.

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

Okay, our house looks like this two floors rooms. Okay, but do you guys pray in your house? No, we don't really pray at home. You know sometimes.

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

If our parents come and visit us and pray,

00:22:45--> 00:22:50

right? So you don't pray at home? Okay. You guys ever sit down and recite the Quran? No, we never said before.

00:22:52--> 00:23:18

Other pictures hanging in your house? Yeah, there's pictures in our house. Do you believe in any of those pictures in pious people righteous people? Yeah, of course. You know, there's so and so person being judged on the songs on the wall that you know, different cultures having different people on their walls and they think this is going to protect them. You have any other things that you think are protecting you in your house? They say Yeah, my mom gave me this to hang in this room. But my dad gave me that to put under my pillow and Okay.

00:23:19--> 00:23:34

And so our trust in a loss of habitat is completely missing our submission to Allah so can we add it is completely missing. And what we're doing is we are seeking help and refuge in other than the loss of habitat.

00:23:36--> 00:24:14

And then when it comes to reciting the Quran, and saying also not too long ago was too long. I can't recite it. I'm sorry. It's too hard. And what happens is people call me and say, Can you come to my house? Can you come to my store? Right? Someone opens a new business or something. Can you come to our house and recite Surah Baqarah Why should I go to your house and recite it? You can recite it yourself? Open the floor and recite it. No, it's gonna take me too long. That's okay. That's okay. We aren't meant to finish the Quran in one night. We should take our time of the ponder over and reflect over the verses within the Godhead. And so here I'm also kind of weird to Allah reveals this

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

to us and he says that he is learning that he can Kitab

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

wouldn't be locked up.

00:24:23--> 00:24:33

He says this is a book. There is no doubt in it. It is a guide for those who are mindful of a loss of panic attacks

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

that he can do right

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

now.

00:24:39--> 00:24:49

I usually keep a massage on my desk when I'm teaching just to use examples or for examples but some of you have the Quran or must have with you it's okay you can keep it so none of us can keep it keep it

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

you know we hold on to it.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

But if you were to lose your Quran

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Would you read

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

Do you feel lost?

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

Thank you if you misplaced your

00:25:06--> 00:25:10

wish you'd be like Oh no, what do I do? Like how am I gonna live? How am I going to survive?

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

But if you misplaced your phone

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

How would you feel

00:25:16--> 00:25:19

you know the moment when your phone goes missing?

00:25:20--> 00:25:26

You go online and you start tracking it where's my phone? I remember one time my wife misplaced your phone right?

00:25:27--> 00:25:37

And she's like Don't use me as an example. I went to the gas station the family was in the car filled with gas my wife went in she paid right this was a few years back

00:25:38--> 00:26:05

we get home phone is missing. Where is it? I don't know. Battery wasn't I think the battery wasn't charged so much or something I don't know maybe it died trying to track it and looking everywhere went back to the gas station walked around went inside I'm looking around the guy's like Is everything okay? Like because I look suspicious right it's like looking around you know checking out the counter around the cash looking around everything okay, like yeah, my wife foster phone just trying to see this here, you know, checked everywhere couldn't find the phone.

00:26:06--> 00:26:20

And the tracking was saying it's in the car. So like going in the car like I rip the whole everything out of the car already. Like I can't find it can't find it. It's kind of in between the seat and between the seat in the middle console is literally if you just look down you see it

00:26:21--> 00:26:51

but the headache in the strain of going and finding it was kind of long, how much does it cost? All my information is on it. Pictures are on it data's on it, emails are on it, you know, contacts, everything is gone, you feel like your life is missing, was kind of Genesis Valley can keytab la isla de rue de Lille moto p, that book that we hold on to that we just call a book. It contains the loss of habitat. So yes, it's a book and it's bound. But

00:26:53--> 00:27:23

it's the words of Allah subhanho wa taala. That is guidance for us. Those who are mindful, he says Buddha would then limit the theme. Who are the MCDA theme ALLAH SubhanA wa tells us or the people who are mindful of actions in the next verse, he says, I letting you know you mean on me. He says, Those who are love Allah are the ones who believe in the unseen.

00:27:24--> 00:27:42

Now believing in the unseen sometimes people misunderstand this and like, oh, we have to believe in like the supernatural. Know, the leaves in the in every aspect. You see that your heart is beating right now. But you didn't even think of it until I mentioned it.

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

Yet, it's still meaning.

00:27:45--> 00:28:30

We don't think that our lead is Russians, until we are mentioned or until it is mentioned that the blood is running through our veins. And we think oh yes, how who's making the blood runs through our veins? We don't think that sound is being processed with waves entering our years and the drum moving in our brain compare everything and allowing us to not only hear the sound, but give meaning to the sound like the word sound. The word cat, right? It's just it sound waves that we're hearing. Like, if I knock, what do you hear, you hear. And your brain thinks, oh, that sound is the sound of someone knocking on a table and your brain knows what a table is. And your brain knows what a person

00:28:30--> 00:28:51

is. And your brain knows what a hand is. And so the leaving and all of that believing that Allah has control over everything. Allah has control over our lives. Allah has control over the forgiveness as well. You see, we do things in life. And a lot of the time we think Allah will never forgive us because we believe in what we see.

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

And a lot of the time the challenge is believing in Allah.

00:28:58--> 00:29:15

Especially with the younger generation. They can't believe in something they can't see. And so Allah says that he can cater without on Buffy. Sorry, and let you know you've been on a bit of a ride even those who believe in the unseen can we see Allah?

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

Right.

00:29:20--> 00:29:35

We start to become confused when we ask these questions like wait a second. Yeah, that's right. I believe in Allah, but I can't even see him. And I like to use examples of modern day things. You've probably heard me use this example before Wi Fi.

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

We believe so strongly, only the Wi Fi can order us about when we're starving it off time. Right? We believe so strongly that clicking on the screen of my phone will send the message over some invisible stream to this place called Uber Eats that will give another signal to certain

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

somewhere that will tell them not only the type of pizza I want, but the size the items on it, what I don't want on it, and how quickly it's going to be delivered to my home. They don't even know where I live. They don't even know who I am. But that information reaches them. We believe in all of that. So firmly, right? Like, it's, we don't even think twice, like how does this happen? We just go and do it. You go online and you shop, you want to buy something or buy new glasses, you go online in your shop and you buy them.

00:30:32--> 00:30:45

You want to buy you know toilet paper for your home, you go online, you buy it and it shows up at your door. How did it get there, Allah knows. But our brains can think and put things together. But there's missing links. There's the unseen.

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

And Allah subhana wa Tada. Right now we don't see him.

00:30:52--> 00:30:55

But he shows us signs of his existence.

00:30:57--> 00:31:06

Signs of his existence. And one of the greatest signs of a muscle can want to add his power and lighten strength is you

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

look in the mirror.

00:31:10--> 00:31:26

And when we look in the mirror, we say to do our Allahumma data center hunting for Huston Cody or law, you have perfected my outer appearance. So perfect me on the inside my manners, my behavior, my character.

00:31:27--> 00:31:41

Because of how long we think of it, even our character is unseen to the person sitting next to us, you are looking at him, I'm looking at you, you don't really know what goes on inside of me and I don't even know what's deep down inside of you.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

Yet we believe in it.

00:31:48--> 00:32:09

So we should even have also cannaboids data and these are examples we give to the younger generation so that know and feel also kind of want to add it doesn't need to show Himself to us owes a science. You know the brother was mentioning the electricity and relates, hey, I always use the lights as an example as well the electricity coming down. So

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

how is it that the lighted tube that we're seeing going to here?

00:32:16--> 00:32:19

It's traveling, we don't see it traveling.

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

And then it's glowing because there's electricity in it.

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

Right TriCity that's going through the wires that are touching the two ends of the tube light.

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

And the electricity passing through this end of that end, and it glows. Especially in the old style, you know minutes, the wire that goes inside of the light bulb.

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

When you look at the wire, you take the wire

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

and if you cut it open and you touch it

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

you get hurt.

00:32:56--> 00:33:00

But if you cut it open and don't touch it, and you just look at it.

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

Do you see anything D electricity?

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

No, if you feel it?

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

Like it's real. It's there. If you taste it, oh man, don't do that. Right. But it's there. It's real. Even so much. We need electricity for everything, like electric cars and everything right? phones, cars, tablets, everything is we believe in it so much. It's there. But look at the wire, you can't see the electricity. And where did it come from? Water

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

if it's hydro electricity came from water. What did the water do? Just turn a turbine

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

and generate electricity.

00:33:45--> 00:33:50

We believe in that we can't believe in the law. People say I can't see it. So I can't believe in it.

00:33:51--> 00:33:56

I wouldn't say take the electric wire and touch them but you know maybe if you want to just take a nine volt battery and put on their tongue

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

might be a good example. Right?

00:34:01--> 00:34:11

So it was kind of what it says and we'll finish up soon in sha Allah when Larina you mean whatever you buy even sorry, let me know what you are up

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

to. I mean

00:34:16--> 00:34:22

he says those who believe in the unseen they establish their prayer and

00:34:24--> 00:34:31

woman mountains lockergnome young people and they donate from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has provided the waste.

00:34:32--> 00:34:54

They donate it from that which Allah has provided them with. We don't need to be millionaires to give donations. Sadly, the Western world that we live in has made us feel as though donations is only in the form of dollars and not anymore, right just donors.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want just dollars

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

To someone who needs your time, give your energy to someone who needs your energy. Right? Someone who's sick who can't get up earlier today, a brother messaged me, you know, his mom's gonna have a surgery similar to what my dad had. And he was asking, you know, how long is the recover. And so kind of I was telling him explaining to him for years and telling him you might need to be there for two weeks just to help your mom to get up and sit down. Because her knee might not have, you know, if you have a knee replacement surgery, your leg doesn't have enough energy in it, and the other leg is still weak because you just had the surgery, you can't lift yourself up, and you might lose your

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

balance and fall over.

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

And so you give your energy you give your time to someone who needs it.

00:35:46--> 00:36:23

Like now well, how can I you see volunteers here giving their time in the back. Some of them are giving their time because they're genuine. And others are giving their time because they needed for high school. Right? Let's be honest, some are giving it because they're genuine and some are giving it because they need it for high school. But training them to volunteer comes through the need to have it for high school. So they might go and do it. Be like hey, this is cool. I love this and then they haven't and they want to be in the masjid more often. And like you realize that through their volunteer work, they end up becoming people that constantly give back. So the spool training them to

00:36:23--> 00:36:30

do like 5060 hours of volunteer work leads to them volunteering sectors for the rest of their life.

00:36:31--> 00:36:41

And Allah Subhana Allah is telling us those who are mindful of him, the McDouble and those who think of Allah subhanho wa taala, often those who submit to Him

00:36:42--> 00:36:53

in believing in the unseen and they establish their prayer and they give sadaqa they're constantly giving in charity, when Lenny Naomi, Mona Bhima, Xena in a Kelowna

00:36:55--> 00:37:08

or Albany County, you're the one and there are those who believe in what has been revealed to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and what was revealed before him

00:37:10--> 00:37:23

and have sure faith firm faith in the hereafter. Because the hereafter is important. Can you believe him apostle kinda want to add that you realize that this world doesn't really mean too much.

00:37:24--> 00:37:39

You realize that you have all the luxuries that you could ever possibly want, and more. Because that the way you were raised a child and then came, you might have come to Canada and you look at the way you're living now you like Scala, we have so much more.

00:37:40--> 00:37:42

But you might feel sad inside.

00:37:43--> 00:37:55

I was talking to one of my friends who lives in a country in Africa just the other day two days ago. And Subhan Allah I told him in the message, I said, you have nothing of this world.

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

We talk about the material world, they have nothing.

00:38:02--> 00:38:29

What they have things they have is nothing compared to what we have. But I told him I said the children that I see in the vet that come from that country, your children are happy. They're excited, like someone comes to visit them to, I don't know Digga well, and give them water and 1000s of children come out to the lake. Like dancing and cheering Muslim. They're so happy. They're all excited. All the children are like going crazy.

00:38:30--> 00:38:34

And over here, if our children are thirsty, we give them a bottle of water.

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

Just water. You know, I'm

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

so thirsty. I am thirsty. Oh, orange juice. Well, you want orange juice. Okay.

00:38:46--> 00:39:26

There you go. And you get some Kool Aid powder in the water and you give it to them. Right? I don't even know if they sell Kool Aid anymore. And you get a ton of what is this? I don't want this. And then they grow up they become teenagers. And they want a coffee. And so you like you guys want a coffee? You're driving somewhere you have teenage children you stop the divorce like Tim Hortons please don't get Tim Hortons. Well, Tim Hortons is dirty. Let's go to Starbucks and get a you know, a latte or something. You know, I need to pay with raspberry and chocolate shavings and cinnamon flakes on top and mashallah, right 600 700 calories per second, right? And then you give it to them

00:39:26--> 00:39:31

and they take three four sips, they drink half of it and then like it's cold, they leave it aside, walk away.

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

That's happiness. There's no happiness in that. There's no

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

loss of habitat is showing us. You need to believe hereafter and look forward to the hereafter. Because the more you have of this dunya the more you become bored of it. It's irrelevant. It's not important anymore. You have a nice winter coat. Eventually you want another winter coat, you have nice shoes. Eventually you want new new shoes.

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

You have a nice phone, you have the latest cell phone. All of a sudden someone comes out and shows you their phone like man, I want that phone and you're going to trade yours in even though you just got it the other day. Right? We trade it in for another phone. We're not happy because we think things make us happy. Allah subhana wa Tada says hula ek either would have never been what would he be home, it is they who are truly guided by their Lord and it is they who will be successful.

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

simplicity of life

00:40:32--> 00:41:17

almost kind of data showed us who the people are that our mind to him the rewards that they get by constantly thinking of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. We will see as we continue through our journey and learning about the verses of the Quran, we'll start now in sha Allah, I'd like to stop about 10 minutes before the end just to give everyone time for do you know, this is a time which is accepted the last few minutes before before mother time enters. It's a time that is accepted. And so we should use this time not only because it's a time of your as accepted but also because you're fasting, right we are all fasting and the doer of the fasting person when their belts are great.

00:41:17--> 00:41:40

They're fast as a doctor that is less than accepted. So use this time to make dua if you sit here or maybe you go if the volunteers are okay with us going and sitting over there. Sit down over there and you know, thankful also kind of watch out for the food you're about to eat, raise your hands and do show crypto visor gel does not come along clean and we'll see all of you tomorrow on chat along with Tatiana or someone will send them over kind of you know,

00:41:42--> 00:41:45

either sending a cinematic marketer body robot to capture
