salaam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Lana v. Hill Kareem follow Sala to attend with a slim rubbish rally Saudi way Sidley Emily de la could attend in the sunny of Cali, my brothers and my sisters SNM or Maura tomato butter cattle. So today, inshallah Allahu Allah, we begin me through the code. And once again, and we shall learn who to add, I will take examples from the Quran.
In this class that we've been doing for a number of years
that we've been doing for a number of years now known as 30, in 30.
And the 30 is
30 days of the Quran being covered in 30 days. Of course, we do not go through every single Ico we will not have the ability, or the capacity in 30 days in technically 30 hours to go 30 Jews of the Quran, verse after verse, our intention is to pull out samples from the fun, some lessons that we learn that will benefit ourselves, benefit our family, benefit those that are around us. But first and foremost, try and benefit our own souls and allow us to reach higher levels and higher status in Jenna in Paradise, I mean.
Now, I want to begin by, first of all,
wishing every single one of you of the month of Ramadan, I want to remind myself and all of you that this is a month that is not only a blessing for us and blessing for us. But it is a blessing to be a part of those who have reached this month of Ramadan. Many people that we know have not made it this far, people that we have have passed away just before this month of Ramadan or within the last year. And last year, we had opportunity to be together online to live stream and to learn together. And we were very eager to reach this year so that hopefully masajid would be reopened and we'd be able to go in and two together together and come to the law that is case handling voltage gather in the
massage it here in you know this part of Ontario where we are, and hamdulillah we are able to, you know, somewhat of a congregation even though we're standing six feet apart. And you know, last year when we could discuss certain topics,
you know, it was completely different than what we are seeing today. So the passes, things go on, things change, things happen.
And as years go on, a loss can avoid that takes back certain people from our lives, right some of us, our grandparents have passed away some of our parents have passed away. Some people siblings have left in rich
whatever this does have been for many of us we focus on those who left us we focused on their lives, what they did, what they achieved, what they were capable of doing, and the awesome things that we know them for.
And one of my batteries is about the dayanita cable.
So we usually tend to focus
those who have passed away and who have left us and
really what Allah subhanho wa Taala is doing.
Not only is he taking someone back, but Allah Subhana Allah is reminding us of the importance of working hard because we will also return to Allah Subhana botad you know,
at least one
for me for those of you that are on Instagram.
Just double check the charging good. Yeah.
At least once
every single week.
Someone will come to me and talk to me about either someone in their family that has passed away, or someone who is extremely ill the doctors have said well probably not
You know, for too much longer, you know, there's always a time people will come and express themselves and feel as though you know, what are we supposed to help this person. But I want us to remember,
Allah Subhana takes people away in our lives for us to be shaking, for us to wait for us to realize that we are still here. Life goes on, we still have to work hard, we still need connect with Allah, we still need to do everybody need to pray our sweat out, we need to recite the Quran, we still need to perfect our lives in terms of the Shetty that we know of that we're trying to learn and implement in our lifestyle. And so my brothers and sisters, when someone passes away, it's a reminder from Allah subhana wa tada that we will return to him very soon as well. And so as much as we will return to Allah subhana wa Tada, what is it that I need to know and do before that day comes? So Al
Hamdulillah As I was saying, it's a blessing from Allah to be able to reach this and I'm about to be able to be from amongst will inshallah benefit from this month of Ramadan. But am I going to just
glide through it,
or breeze through it, like, the previous years, am I going to focus on the hunger and I'll tell you straight up not hungry right now, but have a really bad day. And I've had it since yesterday. And I was hoping that Subhanallah today, you know, in the morning, it's somewhat after eating some food in my hope to relieve that headache, or taking some, you know, pain medication might help to remove that headache, but Allah subhana wa COVID, left it there, left it there for whatever reason, lessons that I will get from it that I will keep to myself. And so every single thing that we go through in life is a means of turning back to Allah subhana wa tada in order to become better. This Ramadan,
this 30 and 30. These days that we go through, you know, hopefully, near the end of this pandemic, and hopefully coming back to what we remember as being a normal lifestyle.
I'm hoping for myself and hoping for you is to learn at least at least just one new thing every single night. And its 100th time that to the 1,000th time that we decided to put on,
find that we are at the stage in our life, that now I'm going to take this lesson. This is for me, I'm going to put it in my life and I'm going to act on it. And I'm going to be a better person might be related to your business, it might be related to your school might be related to your family, it might be related to your neighbors, it might be related to your health, it might be remounted Of course anything that we're going to, you know taken and put our lives is going to be something that's good and beneficial for our team. But we want to make sure that we're doing it for the sake of pleasing the lowest avoid. So I wanted to start with that as a reminder, my brothers and sisters
that this 30 and 30 take a lesson one lesson every single day.
Make that less than an important lesson for you
in your life, share it with someone else but it's on a longer it send him says it's better who Omni wire share conveyed spread from me. share something with others, even if it is just an idea. one verse something that we get from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life his teachings is saying, you know the things that he encouraged us out of out of the Allah to do just pick one thing and implement it in your life.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless you and your family in ways that we never could have even imagined. For Allah subhanho wa Taala says
when they get to La Jolla, Allah Maharaja way of zouk amin hifu later acid, or has talked about in Allah subhanho wa Taala, he rents for that person way out. Right?
Time of ease, some solution, some bless.
So common high to late acid. And he provides for them provisions from places that we couldn't even imagine. So my brothers and sisters this avant, let's kick it off really well. By telling ourselves, we are going to breach goals and try to achieve goals that are realistic, that are important, that are beneficial, Dart easy us to adopt our lives. So let's start in sha Allah
It's not easy, especially in the first few days, I'll tell you totally honest with you. It's not easy to be teaching for, you know, 45 minutes to an hour in the last hour of a long day fasting
any other colleagues of mine other times that choose to livestream at this time, the day we'll actually have it pre written just because the energy level is so much lower at this time of the day and see the first day of Ramadan, you know, just in the few minutes of talking in 10 minutes feeling like lightheaded and nauseous,
some kind of law. But when when we read through the Quran and Allah we will forget you know the hunger forget the headaches, forget the pain for the strain and we will in short a lot of time to get through it.
So we begin with Surah Fatiha Allah subhanho wa Taala starts the Quran known as the beginning. Right?
And you know when we look at
this, this toora an amazing one off from Allah subhanho wa Taala is so short, oh sweet, so concise, within contains to do and also within it contains praise of Allah subhana wa, Tada.
There isn't a day that the Muslim
lives were reciting. But in fact,
there isn't a moment in the life of the Muslim where they feel they could do without to rattle Fatiha. In fact, Torah to Fatiha is a cure
We could learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for example, you have a headache. You put your hand on your head wherever the pain is, and you recite Surah Fatiha. So I'm going to do that.
Again, in a shade on emoji.
This means marshmallow and you're watching
him and when he
learned and he didn't have
any of ye m Ma, Niki MIDI and E. Chen. Eric will do what he can do every
day no single one was telling
him slid off on an errand. And he was dean mo Ooh, Brr. him.
secure from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we should believe that it is and implement some of these lessons in our lives. When we feel down. We don't feel good. When we feel pain, when we feel hurt. When we feel like we need some strength and some uplifting turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala through the recitation of Surah
Al Hamdulillah, you'll realize that you feel much better. I remember when I was a child. There was a Muslim brother, who in fact, was from the UK, who had accepted Islam. He accepted his, um, and I don't know how many years he was Muslim before I had met. But brother was very deep. His name Fulk. Okay, his name was Barack is his name that his parents gave to him was William. Okay, William, William Gibson.
And this person had a lot. There was a day when I was young and had a headache.
And it was over at our house. And we were gathering to pay there was no mustard in our town. And this brother bought me He says,
You recite Quran and it is a cure for yourself. Right? Because Allah put the cure in the Quran. And I remember that day we prayed together, and we recited notes in
and so what I told her
To have courses in our sauna, right? And I went to such that, and I could feel my head pounding as I was in this, and, and went back down into. And so panela he told me he said before, you know the prayer, he said, trust, the law will cure you trust that Allah will cure you, the cure will come from Allah. And Pamela at the end of the prayer,
my headache was gone.
And it was one of those headaches where you felt like you were going to roll over and just needed to, you know,
curl up into a ball your bed. So Pamela didn't want to eat you to move, but he told me trust law, and your headache will be at the end of the Salah was gone. hamdulillah you know, Allah subhana wa Tana, he teaches us so many things in an instant, the sum of the profits on along with us and know, that
we know, we know these things, you know, and I know what I'm saying, I know it that the content is secure, and to the fatty how it is differ from a loss, which I had. But knowing and believing are two completely different things, knowing and trusting Allah Subhana, Allah are two completely different things, right. So we need to try to level in shop level to
those who are too Fatty, we're not going to go through it in detail. It's a very short slide. And I know that many of us have already learnt sort of Fatiha in our lives, multiple times, probably. So we will skip directly to so what I talked about,
at the very beginning of the book, on our last panel with Allah says he flew
and he can look it up, we'll see who doesn't mean, totally. I mean, this is the book. And there is no doubt about it, a guide for those mindful law, a guide, every single one of us wants a guide, every single one of us uses some sort of guide, when we're driving a car, right, we're going from point A to point B, except over a certain age, you know, you realize we don't need these type GPS, and, you know, Google Maps, and weight, and all these different types of applications to point A to point B, we're already you know, seeing that, as we get older, you know, we might sort of drift away from using certain applications in our lives, and the older generation don't, but for those of us
who use these applications, use the phones and use these sorts of gadgets that we have, we recognize that it's taking us from point A to point B with ease. So it must be something that's good for me. And at times we trust it even though our instinct is telling us otherwise, you might be drunk driving in your neighborhood. And you know, these streets like the back of your hand, right? You know, these are just like you know, your own self, right? You look at yourself Subhanallah yet, if someone shows you your hand, you'll know very This is my hand, if someone takes a picture of 100 different hands, and says identify your own hand, you know it right, because it's yours. It's there.
You see all the time,
your neighborhood, your streets, you're driving around, you turn on your GPS before you go and your GPS is telling you to take a different route. And you think to yourself, but I know the streets really well. And I know that that's a longer route to get to my destination, then the then the route that the GPS or sorry, I know that the GPS route is longer than the route that I know myself, because I know my neighborhood, right? And so we feel at times that the GPS is deceiving us. Right? But what do we do?
We still end up following it. We still follow the GPS. Because we know we've had experience in the past that when we know the streets of that neighborhood, and we decide to go a different route, we decide to take a different route. What happens is, as we're driving, we hit traffic, there's construction, an accident happened, luck, Allah, may Allah protect us all. Something happened along that route that stops us from getting to our destination.
Or that slowed us down from reaching that destination. And therefore we went through some sort of hardship, or some sort of difficulty in order to reach where we're going. What do we learn that lesson my brothers and sisters, we learned that we turn to a GPS to use as a guide because there's real time knowledge backed up. There are other drivers that have gone the streets that know exactly where the traffic is. They slowed down and
That's being relayed back to us. But our GPS joining us don't take this road, take that road because this one or some traffic and that one is better for you, you are safer as route. You are quicker on this route. And it is better for you than that.
And this one is a guide from Allah subhana wa, Tada. You know, there's times in life, we feel that we were doing.
We feel like, Yeah, I got this. It's my job, what I'm doing. I have everything under control.
It's my family. I know how to take care of them.
It's my money.
Tell me how to use it.
Right? It's my life. I'll do with it what I want. You can't tell me what to do with my life. You can't tell me how to live. Don't tell me to do this. Don't tell me to do that. Sometimes we find people saying, Don't tell me to pray. Don't need to do this. Don't tell me too fast. Too fast. Right? Sometimes people that and we have a lot of examples. I can give you a lot of examples. But I don't want to have people who say I don't need this.
But the reality is when we sway away from it, eventually hit that traffic. Eventually we hit that roadblock. Eventually, there's some sort of problem that comes our way that makes it difficult for us to move forward.
If only only we listened
to that GPS to guide, what is the guide
that can kita benefi
le bien. It is the guide for those who have Taqwa those who are mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala had
already you know, Moon avenue of BYU will be on Asana Dela

those who believe that has been revealed

be given what we
Allah Subhana Allah says, It is they who are truly guided by their Lord. And it is they who will be successful. So is the guide the GPS that you need in life? Absolutely. And this is the month of the Quran. This is the time we connect with. And more than ever, this is the time they learn about its verses as we just did. It's a time that we ask what to ask for forgiveness. And we seek that forgiveness ways that are shown to us in the examples that were given by the prophets of the past by the people in the nations that lived before us. And all of that is found within Iran. This is the month of the end. The month of some of my brothers and sisters need to be from among those who are
successful, who learn who will benefit from this blessing book, the
word of Allah subhana wa.
Let's skip forward in a long time, brothers and sisters.
We'll take a couple verses, hopefully.
And we'll get into the flow things as days go on. I know that it's 730 and if thought is very soon.
And to be honest, I'm feeling very drained.
I'm feeling it. Somehow this last hour is really taking its toll. Let's look at verse number 30.
In verse number 30 awasum one way to add to highlight the story of the man at his center is called our book you get
out of the halifa?
How do I tend to have a UCP, highway sweeper? No new sub will be handy you can cut the Select order in knee parallel manner to
remember when your Lord said to the angels when a loss of bandwidth Hannah said to angels, I'm going to play a successive human authority on earth. And they ask, Allah will you
in it, someone who has spread corruption there and shed blood, while we glorify your praises and proclaim Your Holiness?
Allah Subhana Allah responds and says, In the animal, that animal, I know what you do not know. So Allah subhana wa tada here is showing us a beautiful example in spotswood bucha. For those that are asking, we're in Switzerland bacala. Okay, verse number 30. It's the first day of the class we're covering first, just okay.
Here are lost data. It's the beginning of of the creation of human beings and how he's going to place us on Earth. Right and create them It has set up and human beings will be.
And I remember talking about this story.
I think it was two years ago, in Cambridge, roughly about a year and a half to two years ago. And a brother had a very deep conversation with after we discussed these ads in the masjid in Cambridge and that brother, he passed away just two weeks ago, the Mohammed rashwan in Enbridge, the board members or former board members of the masjid. So here we see how Allah so powerful way to add, you know, highlighting the fact that human beings will come to this Earth Angels are asking Allah Subhana Allah you're going to put someone on earth is going to cause corruption that is spread, you know, evil. And Allah Subhana says, they know what you don't know.
And then there's why Allah,
Allah subhana wa Taala taught them Allah has sent out the names, the functions of everything.
So my final Malaika then he presented them to the angels
and maybe a smurf will in quantum Saudi.
Tell him the names of these if what you say is true.
until Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna then says, All right, apply. So Hannah, lemon and a lamp lamp Tana can tell early King Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except to your products are truly the all knowing, all wise.
Then turns to Adam added his samples and he's he dresses Adam Allah has sent me tells me he says to Adam, Allah His Sam wood was there in front of them is on a
BS in him from
Esma hidden caller lm Aquila come in the movie bus. wire in a moment, we do not want that come to Allah subhana wa says to add, oh, Adam, from them of their names,
inform them of their names
was Angel of course the creation of Allah that we that that was
then it has set up and he did that Allah pan which Allah said, did not tell you that I know the secrets of the heavens and earth. And I know what you feel and what you can do. Allah Subhana voids, proves to the angels proves that he knows everything that we see and everything.
We don't see.
Can we tell us what's deep within our heart? how we feel right now. Some of you might be thinking doze off his game right now, some of you are thinking and how we have the opportunity to learn some of our thinking all the time is going so slow. Others are you thinking, Man, those poor Canadians, if only they lived in the southern hemisphere, the days would be much shorter for them and they wouldn't be complaining. Right? So Canada, every single one of us sees things in front of us that we know of. But even from the things that are in front of us, we don't know if,
you see me in front of you. You're probably looking at me through screen
You have no idea what's behind that screen in order to make the picture the image come out, in order for you to be able to see what's going on. Even though it's your face, right in front of you, you still not see what's hidden behind that.
And within that tour itself, even though I'm writing you, you still can't see what's hidden and sealed within how I feel right now.
And my brothers and sisters, sometimes we meet people on the streets, we run into people, we walk by them, and we say, Hello. Good morning. ascena more eloquent. How are you?
Yes, we know what they can see.
Some people are in pain, but they still smile at you every day. You walk by them. Thinking come to love everyone in our neighborhood is doing well.
Everyone has, you know, has food to eat. Everyone has a home to live in. Most people have a car drive, especially in Milton, the town that we live in. Without a car, you can't really get from point A to point B, right? Unless it's the summer.
You use your bicycle, or rollerblades or you walk or you jog or you have some mode of transportation, right. But technically, if you're going somewhere far you need a car. So a lot of the time we think of the people around us as being people who have everything they need and everything is perfectly fine with them in their lives. But that's necessarily the case. People are struggling. People are going through hardship. People feel pain. And when we walk by them, they say hello. They say good morning, they smile. And we say hello. We say good morning, and we smile back at them not realizing that if we are feeling the pain, we want them to acknowledge it. We want
someone to recognize these aren't right. We sometimes might want someone to talk to but there's no one there. Because everyone just keeps piling in that what's on the outside is perfectly fine. So what's on the inside is probably perfectly fine too.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala knows
Allah subhana wa tada knows what we can see. And this is where my brothers and sisters need to turn to patible with that, asked him when you feel down, ask him when you feel sick, asked him when you alone.
ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for help first, before seeking help anyone or anywhere else, and awesome Han who
will help and will bring out a lot will never abandon us.
But sometimes we have to understand that when we feel abandoned by Allah.
It's not Allah subhanaw taala events, something
is a lesson.
for us to get stronger for us to be better for us to trust, the love for us to him even for us to seek forgiveness, the opportunity upon opportunity from Allah subhana wa what's
so my brothers and sisters, to conclude today in sha Allah, Tad, remember, this is a guide. The Quran teaches us where to go in life and how to do it.
That life is temporary. And our direction shouldn't be towards a little attack in all the things that he is pleased with. So turned to Panama.
And remember, that Allah subhanho wa Taala data knows what we see
and what we don't see
what we hear
and what we don't hear what conceal with Allah Subhana Allah knows. So ask from last panel always throughout this month of Ramadan and seek forgiveness and pardon from Allah. And we ask Allah hanaway to added bless every single one of us with the best that this month of Ramadan has to offer. And allow us to welcome this guest this month of Ramadan in the best of bees and benefit and maximize from our time throughout this month. Just come along here on article level FICO. I'll see all of you tomorrow at seven o'clock in sha Allah Ghana.
So now more from what about our cat
