Bismillah Alhamdulillah Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah azza wa jal EMEA Eva mursaleen Nabina Muhammad Ali Afflalo, Salatu atoma, tasleem rubbish Mahalia, Saudi Arabia Sydney, Emily wilden Dr. Millis any of Gokhale, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Mr alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato.
Today is the third night of Ramadan and have the law we finished fasting two days and this is the third night. So we will be reciting in tarawih from verse number 21 of sudo early and run until the end of the surah. Okay until the end of the pseudo verse number 200.
Therefore, in our Tafseer will cover the entire sort of sort of alien run because we didn't really start it yesterday.
And we'll go through that shortly. inshallah Tada, just to backtrack, I left off yesterday, and there were quite a few people here, and they're going to miss out on that. We left off yesterday when we were mentioning how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he passed away,
just before he passed away, in fact, he was you know, losing his consciousness and coming back to consciousness, etc. And so he, you know, wakes up and he asks her shadow, the love Anna, how much do we have? How much wealth do we have? Right? How much money do we have? And so, I shadow the Allahu anhu she tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 17 out of like seven coins, right? And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells her to shut up the love and you know, give it away in sadaqa don't keep it give it away in South Africa.
Shut up the Allahu Akbar. After hearing this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he, you know, goes back to sleep falls unconscious. And so what sort of the Allahu Ana ends up doing is she looks after him until he regains consciousness again. And then she asked, you know, he asks her, what did you do? What did you do with the money? She says about the long run, I was busy looking after you. So I didn't give away the money yet, right? I didn't give away the seven D not so the Prophet salallahu it he was seldom, you know, he gets a little bit upset and he tells her you know, in a in a stern manner, you know, give away the, the, the 17 out of the coins that we have because
no prophet leaves behind inheritance for their family members, their relatives, so give it away Therefore, he would have nothing left for anyone to claim as you know, inheritance after the death of the Prophet sallallahu adding us on them. And so that was really interesting when we were talking about wealth yesterday and how you know, money and Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran that we took the verses yesterday, verses 278 and 279, of pseudo tillbaka referring to interest and dealing with interest and how Allah subhana wa tada wages war against a person who, who, you know, constantly deals with interest and really has no shame just just does it without without even
feeling that they're doing something wrong. In verse number 282, which was near the ending of soldato bacara.
Allah subhanho wa Taala here says, Yeah, you have Latina ermanno, either today and to be done in Isla Jenny muscleman factorable. Now, I don't want to read the entire verse. It's actually a whole page long, right? It's the entire page of the Koran. So I won't read the whole verse, But Allah subhana wa, tada here is talking about taking a loan. When a person takes a loan, he shows us here, he died today and to be deignan, ILA jelly muscleman factorable, write it down. So when you're borrowing money, or you're taking a loan, or you're lending someone money, basically, if there's any transaction between you, and a lot of the time, we look at a transaction as something that's like,
you know, I'm gonna buy a car, I'm gonna buy a house or sell something, I'll sell my business, I'll make sure I have a contract. So I'll also handle it and this version 282 of Sunil tillbaka. He's telling us the importance of showing us the importance of having a written contract. And he actually mentioned in the verse you know, have someone as a scribe, someone who writes it down, have witnesses, male witnesses, female witnesses, as mentioned there in the verse, you can read through it. So Allah subhana wa, tada, you know, gives us the advice.
Not only advice, but actually informs us to have a written contract. And then what Allah subhana wa tada mentions there is that even at the end of repaying the loan, there should be a contract. So when you're done paying a loan, or you're done purchasing what you need, there's a receipt that has the money has been received. And here this is a contract, it's signed. You agree to it, I agree to it. I've paid you you've paid me It's done. It's over with. There should be witnesses. And there should be a scribe as well who writes it down and do not harm the scribe Allah Subhana. Allah says, Northern witnesses. So sometimes people might say, you know what, you're my friend. What
Why don't you take my side? Why don't you just say, you know what, I paid you back? Right? I don't remember paying you don't remember no one remembers if we paid the right amount. Why don't you just you know, side with me, you're my friend. And then if the if the witness says No, I do not recall you paying this. And the person who the money is owed to says you never paid me. But the witness is saying I remember paying, you know, sorry, not the witness, the person who's paying says I remember paying you, if the witness says I didn't do it, don't get upset with the witnessed with the witness. Do not get upset with them. Don't get upset with the person who writes it down the contract. And you
know, you might say, Hey, wait a second, you wrote this can just change it changes, detailed changes date for me, you know, extend the time, maybe don't do that. And don't get upset with them when they stand their grounds. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us make sure you have a written contract before and after, make sure you have witnesses, make sure that you also have someone who writes the contract down for you. And I know a lot of the time will say Hey, wait a second, why don't I just write the contract myself? That's fine if you want to write the contract yourself. However, if there's a third party, someone who writes the contract and it comes, you know, drafted from them,
then you wouldn't be held liable. Nor would the person who borrowed or who's borrowing the money, it's the person who now is writing out the contract. We move on to Surah Allah Emraan
Just give me a second here in sha Allah. So Allah Emraan what is the the meaning of this surah the title angulon What does that mean? The family of Enron who is Amazon?
the father of a site is set up. How does that make sense?
Millennium Okay, Masha Allah. So a moron had a wife and Milan pious person Allah subhana wa tada refers to them in the in the Quran, the the family agreement on Ron's wife, her name is Hannah, or Hannah, we say with our Canadian accents, right. And so and Ron and Hannah, they wanted to have you know, a child, but a moron. And Zakaria, both profits. Right. Zakaria as well. They were married two sisters. So Hannah and Her sister were married to Mr. Ron and Zakaria and the two sisters couldn't have children. And so in this part of the surah, Allah Subhana, WA tada these are verses 33 to 59. Verses 33 to 59, of sort of Allah Emraan Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the title of the surah is
about the family of Avalon. And the family of Emraan is the family of mme Allah has sent him which means is the family of Isa and he has sent him right. And so Allah subhana wa tada shows us here how and Ron wanted to have a child his wife also wanted to have a child, but they were not capable. That was just something that Allah subhanho wa Taala had not given them the ability in the last offer. Demo one or early Ibrahim were earlier in Milan. Allah Allah Allah mean God yet Umberto Harmon bow or lava semirara Nadeem so Allah subhana wa Taala shows us here that Adam and Noah and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Milan Allah subhana wa tada holds them with honor and status, descendant,
some of them from others and Allah is hearing and knowing. Then Allah Subhana was added goes off into verse number 35 and says, is gone teammoto to me, Murano been Nina's tuna camera fee but plenty more. How about all that caught?
a semi or Lani mentioned Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the wife of Mr. Owen said, My Lord, indeed I have pledged to you. What is in my womb consecrated for your service, whatever I have in my womb is going to be for your service. So Allah subhana wa Taala allowed the wife of Aaron Milan to become pregnant. Right she became pregnant. And they would ask Allah subhana wa tada constantly in their day, to allow them to have a child. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala granted them that and they used to say that they would make this child to be a child that remains in the service of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It would be a child that would remain secluded, that would learn that
would educate themselves. And they were thinking that this child was going to be a male child, right? male child who dedicates themselves and their time towards you know, worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala being secluded from the rest of the world. In the top right,
is quality monitoring Ron it'll be in another tilaka, Matthew botany Mahabharata. So whatever is inside of their stomach
Sorry inside of her womb, they would keep you know sacred they would look after for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada. So accept this from me indeed you are hearing and knowing then from what
Allah subhana wa Jalla says but when she delivered her she said My Lord, I've delivered a female
Walmart Karla Torabi in new Walmart
one long movie Walmart right? While I said that Carol can
watch me some made to have we Emma knee. Where are you evil hub you can with Odin, the Mina Shay. paniagua ggmbh. So she gives birth to a female who was it? Madame la has set up and we see how Allah subhanho wa Taala grants them this child even though they're at a little bit of an elderly age, proving to us that a woman who could not have a child, Allah allowed her to have a child as in Allah can make anything happen. And in the lessons are the story of Medea Marilee has sent them and Isa Prophet Jesus. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that so many things happen with the will of Allah that we as human beings would not think could even be possible.
how or why. Now let's look at the birth of Madame Allah has sent out she was born to a woman who could not have children was getting a little bit old. And then mme Allah has sent them when she was born, she was born an orphan.
Her father and mom passed away. And her uncle zecharia at his setup looked after her, and she would spend her time you know, as she grew older, she would spend her time in her in her place where she would seclude herself and dedicate her time and her life to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So she's in her home now every single time.
That sorry, every single time that second era has sent him would enter upon her as we see in verse number 37 Allah subhanho wa Taala says Fatah cabela hora de qaboun. In Hasani
baton baton Hassan waka Fela has keti Allah subhana wa Taala shows us that Zakaria alayhis salam looked after her and every single time that he went into her methodology to see her to see if she was okay. Good luck. Definitely has that carry and
every single time he entered, what did he notice?
Food right as Allah subhana wa tada says, what God
is called provisions. Right. She had provisions with her. Now the interesting thing was that the provisions that she had the food, the fruit that were there, were not fruit of the season. So for example, right now, it's like john says season right? We're in for the Pakistanis that are here. They know Okay, it's Pakistani mango season, because they came in piia landed at three o'clock Friday afternoon and we received the mangoes in the store at 6pm handler we picked them up we enjoyed them. I know I did at least right. So the first batch of Pakistani mangoes have arrived. It's mango season, right? It's the summer What else do we have? You know, the weather is not too hot
yet over here in Canada's beginning of June. But somehow we're gonna see very soon, you know, watermelon, we're going to see corn, we're going to see you know, at the end of the season, we'll have apples we'll have you know lots of different things that will come potatoes etc. And so the produce is about to come, but every single time he would enter upon her he would see the fruits of the opposite season. So for example, now it's like mango season, but he wouldn't find mangoes in there. He would find fruits of the opposite season. For example, during winter, we don't get any fruits here. But what are the what what other types of fruit do we get in the winter? oranges for
example, right? I know when I was living in Malaysia, end of December, beginning of January, you get a lot of oranges, tangerines, etc citrus fruit. And so she would have the fruit of the opposite season and this puzzled him. Why is it that she has the fruits of the season, you know, that he shouldn't have like and they're ripe as well. And so we see here Allah subhanaw taala shows us on a model yamo and Lackey.
He asks Miriam Allah has sent out where did you get this from? Or how is it that you have fruit? It's not mango season you have you know, mangoes it's not orange or you know citrus fruit season. You have citrus fruits, how is it that you have this Where are you getting it from? She says, bonnet, who I mean?
in La Jolla mizukami. Sasha will be as
she says this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala
It is from Allah, He gives to you behind he he said whenever he wants whatever he wants how he wants when he wants what he wants Allah Subhana Allah gives to you. When you have tequila Hydra Allah who Maharaja and another verse of liquid Allah Subhana. Allah says whoever fears the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah has taqwa, ye janilla who must Raja He grants that person, an escape route from the hardships that they're going through. We are resuming hazing.
And he provides his provisions for that person from places that they can't even comprehend. Like you would escape from a fire, thinking all your stuff is lost, but all of a sudden, so much wealth comes to you from where you don't know, Allah Subhana, which Allah gave it to you. And that is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we see here in sort of earlier on the story of Milan, and the story of millennium, and the story of Zakaria, I named him a centum. And then in verses number 38, to 41, the power of Doha, how Allah subhanho wa Taala can send anything hoonah li calderas, keti
after sacchetti sees that medium has you know, these fruits it's not mango season she's got mangoes for example, right? Because I know people are watching they're gonna say hey, she had mangoes right? No, no, she had the fruits of the opposite season. So then Zakaria, he thinks to himself who nearly has a carry yarrabah Zakaria calls out to Allah subhana wa tada into how if the Lord our Lord the creator can give to money um, Allah has sent them the fruits of the opposite season. That means he can give me and my wife fruit of the opposite season. We've passed the season of ripeness to have children were too old now they're too old. They can't have children. First of all, his wife couldn't
have children Second of all, now she's old, she can't have children, right? For years, they've been making dua asking for children. But now he sees that Allah surely and truly can give children even if we're old an age. So in verse number 38, hoonah niganda caddy
Bala being happiny me lead catatonia Pai baton in neck SME or door.
So he calls upon Allah subhana wa tada and says, My Lord, grant me from yourself a good offspring grant us children. Indeed You are the hero of supplication. fena that's one of the man
he can't walk walk on
the feet and miss out on and the angels called out to him. And he's in the middle of praying he's in the middle of his door. asking Allah subhana wa Adana while standing at his merab at his place of prayer. While in the middle of asking Allah Subhana Allah to enter the angels come to him and what do they say?
And Allah how you best Shiro cabbie ashlea
be Kenny Mati Mina, la
mina Saunier honey and Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you and is now giving you glad tidings of who?
Yeah, who's Yeah.
In English, he's known as john.
Right. Yeah, exactly. Isola. So in English, he's known as john in Arabic we say yeah, yeah. And so yeah, is the child of zucchetti and Allah subhanho wa Taala grants them? Yeah, yeah. As the offspring of Zakaria. Now, what's really interesting, we'll cover this later on as we go through the Quran. But yeah, I think his senem is one of the prophets of Allah that was murdered. And so was his father's Acadia. Okay, in the process trying to trying to murder Yeah, is that Khadija Allah has sent him his father was murdered as well. So Allah subhana wa Adana gives them glad tidings of,
of having you know, being able to now have this child and you will name this child Allah subhanaw taala actually named this child Yeah, as he tells his Acadia Allah has sent them in verse number 47 Madame it has set them asks Allah subhana wa Tada. How is it that I'm going to have this child when no man has touched me before? Like I've never been married? I've never been with a man. How is it that I'm going to have a child how is it that I'm pregnant? This doesn't make sense to her it's like boggling her mind. Right? And she knows that Allah subhana wa tada is capable of doing anything, but still she asks Allah subhanho wa Taala and I lost some kind of way to have that, you know, tells her
gone Canada and he come along, we have no coma.
Either bah bah
In kulula, who can say?
So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that whenever he wants something when he wills for something to happen, he makes it happen and all he has to do is say be gone for yakun He commands it to happen, he commands it to take place, and it takes place. Now just to, you know to end or to conclude with the story of lm Ron the family of Milan, in verse number 59, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how arisa alayhis salam had no father. He also shows us how Adam alayhis salaam had no father. He also shows us when we think of the story of Adam and he has sent him how Millennium Allah has sent him sorry how how had no father as well and no mother and Adam Allah has sent him also had no mother,
Allah subhana wa tada created them from the mud from the clay from the dirt from the soil from the sand of the of the world. He created them molded Adam Allah His solemn blew the soul into him from Adam created how there was no father, no mother for either of them, but they were created and Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us if he can create Adam and he can create Howa and he can create Isa Allah has sent him from the parents who are elderly, who had seen that, you know, Maria Maria has sent him is born. And now Zachary makes for Yeah, yeah. And yeah, comes along. How is all of this possible through Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever he wills couldn't fire Kuhn he, he commands it, he doesn't
ask it, he commands it to happen. And it happens. And so the lesson in it for us is that anything that we want in our life, we can actually ask Allah subhana wa Taala for it. And don't think that it can never happen. Last week or the week before I was talking about cures for diseases. And I was saying how the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, NyQuil leader in the work for every single
illness, there's a cure for every illness, there's a cure, right?
Now, how is it that there's a cure, if we're trying to find cures to diseases, but we don't find them, there's a cure, we just need to keep finding. And sometimes the cure might not be in something that we take, and we put in our mouth and we swallow, it might simply be in
the cure could be in Doha. And that's something that we have to believe in. For many of us, we think, you know what, it's not possible. Those are miracles that happen to people who are righteous. know if Allah subhanho wa Taala really wants something to happen to you and you want it, he can give it to you. The question is, how much do we want it? Like we might say, you know, y'all, I want this this amazing job. And you make do Haha, but how sincere? Are we in that door? How are we sacrificing from our comfort during that time? How are we waking up in the middle of the night? Are we sacrificing our time to come to the masjid early to hear the event and make Doha between the event
and the a comma for something that we actually truly want? Are we just rushing to the masjid, praying ourselves out and saying, Li pray my slaughter, and my drive is not being accepted? Yeah, but you're not rushing, you're not getting out there to make sure you're on time. And to make sure that you're benefiting and maximizing from the times of the day that allow some kind of way to find a place for us to receive glad tidings of Doha that's accepted. So that's something we need to focus on, luck and grant us anything, anything you want. If you can allow us to see each other right now. And we don't even know how we're seeing it's processing with our bodies just, you know, doing it on
its own. I'm not telling my eyes look and see and it's registering, oh, it's just happening. I'm not telling my body to breathe. We've all been breathing. No one thought of it but we've been breathing. I'm not telling my heart to beat but it's beating if Allah subhanaw taala can make things happen to us without us ever asking for it. Then when we asked for it sincerely he can make it happen as well. And so those are lessons that we learned from you know, the story of a man on his family's Acadia howdy his Santa Maria, are you sad as Sam and we will move on to verse number 100 of sorta Emraan
in verse number 100 of surah Allah amadon Allah subhanho wa Taala says
totally rule 30 come in a Latina Oh to Nikita by to come by the EMA and econ cafe Irene. Oh, you who have believed again, our last panelist Allah catches our attention. Right? This is the 12th verse I believe that we're taking where Allah subhana wa tada calls out to us. Yeah, you have nothing in common in doobly doo.
If you obey a party or you follow a group of people who are trying to take you away from the book of the last messenger, which is the Quran, that's what we're reading that so what we're going through right now, if you follow those who follow the other books, the Jewish the Christian, what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say? They would turn you back after you believe they will mess up your belief. Why? Because you're not focusing on the last book. You have to understand that Allah subhana wa tada Yes, the books that came to he said, the scriptures, etc, that went to moose to Deadwood Allah has sent them, you know, the Psalms, the the Bible, the Torah, etc. The books in the scriptures that
went to the prophets and messengers of the past, yes, they were divine, and from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But as generations go by things change, we use a simple example, profit use of it his senem, it was common and normal at his time to bow down to make sujood to people, when you're not actually worshiping them. You're simply sending salutations or you're showing honor, you're showing respect to the elderly, or to someone of high status, there's nothing wrong with that, at their time, at our time, it's changed. So if you go through scriptures, and you start to analyze them and compare them, you might become confused, is what Allah subhana wa tada is telling us. Now for those that study the
books and study the Scriptures, yes, they understand it, they know it, and they're comparing it. And at the end of the day, they understand that this was something that happened in the past. And you know, we have the Quran that came now. And this is the truth. And this is what we follow. We don't follow the other scriptures, even though they might have come with, or they did come with the truth, but there might still be some truth in them, because we know that they change their books regularly. We have the New Testament and the newer testament and the newest testament, and the New Testament that will come out tomorrow, maybe, right? There's all these new books that continuously come out,
but the Koran remains the same. And so for those that sometimes hear the knock on their door, know when a Jehovah's Witness comes in visits, for example, and then they say, Hey, you know what, your God and my god is the same? And you're like, No, no, your God is not the same as my God. No, our God, Allah subhanho wa Taala had as a creator that we know of the one that we believe in the one that we know, created us and created them is the same God. Right? It's the same creator,
the one that we believe in, right, don't become confused. And that's a simple example as to how we can get very confused. Someone will say, you know what, your God is the same as my God. Yeah. Okay, so your God, who is the same as our God gave us this book?
Yeah, but there's another book that came after it. No, no, but this book is the truth. Right? Don't you agree that this book is the truth? Yes, but there's another book that came after and then they'll start to quote some verses or some passages of it to confuse you. And that actually happens. There are Muslims who, as a loss of hundreds, Allah says in verse number 100, believe but then become confused with their Deen their belief because they went and they started to compare and analyze the other scriptures. Remember, those scriptures have been changed so that human beings can be drawn into it. There are things that were made impermissible that are that are now known as
permissible within other religions, simply because human beings do them. Right. And so you need to be careful with it. Now, we're not insulting any religion, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, clearly, we do not insult the beliefs are the religions of others, nor their gods, etc. We don't insult them. We're simply clarifying for us. Our belief is our belief. And your belief, as in theirs is their belief. We respect your belief, but we don't believe in what you believe in. Okay? We respect it as and I will not insult you, and will not insult your gods or anything of that sort. Because I don't want you to turn around and insult my God, Allah subhana wa Tada. Similarly, I
respect your belief, but I do not believe in what you believe in. You could respect my belief and don't believe in what I believe in either as a believer, as a movement as a Muslim, right? And so we do not insult other people's religions as Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us in the Quran, another aspect of the Messiah city and talk about this, this verse with regards to the other scriptures or looking at the Jewish and the Christian or people of other religions in general. Sometimes believers, as in us, meaning we will look at the non believer and say, Allah gave them this beautiful house, and they have this you know, nice car and the other nice car and another nice car,
right? And they'll have a country home and they might have a private jet and they have so many things. And you wonder, why is it that Allah Subhana Allah is giving them all of this wealth? If they don't believe why they're getting all of this? Surely they must be doing something that's right. Allah is pleased with them. Not
why he's giving them so much wealth, and you know, nice families and everything is going good for them. That's because their agenda is here on Earth. This is their agenda, this dunya is their agenda, our agenda, our agenda, our paradise is not here. And so we might struggle here. And we struggle to feed our families and we struggle to earn wealth and you might become extremely rich. And that's good. That's how you that's good from Allah Subhana Allah He gave it to you use it, benefit from it, help others. But at the same time, we see that the mass majority of this oma is an omen, the average person because I know many of the you know, there are really wealthy people on
earth that are Muslim, right? But the average person from the oma is, you know, a regular human being who's not earning millions, but you know, not poor at the same time, was just getting by living comfortably Alhamdulillah. And that's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because we receive what we need to pass through this phase. In order to get to Jenna, this is just a temporary abode. It's a temporary place where we be for now to rest and then we will transfer into Jenna, the vanilla kitahara.
Just as a reminder for any of the sisters that are there, two things First of all, please open the lights in the back. So you're not sitting in darkness. Right. And secondly, you can come out the door to your left and there's a partition that's put up there for any of the sisters that want to come out. You can do that. So that you feel as though you're part of the the Holocron the gathering as well.
We move on to verse number 102 and 103 Allah subhanho wa Taala then says yeah, are you Han Latina? Man who it who have gone to college he wants to move in.
Muslims on wire tell Sumo be happy Neela Hey, Jamie

Mean, Canada Nick, can you bang you know ma Hola, como de la la quinta.
In verse number 102, and 103 of Sora. Alia and Ron, Allah subhanho wa Taala. here shows us the importance of taqwa. And this verse we hear at the beginning of the hook, but usually every Friday that a man will say this Yeah, you know, it ducklin la haka, Ducati, Aleta Mouton. illa Anta Muslim moon. Oh, you who have believed,
have Taqwa and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And don't die. Do not leave this world. Make sure that you live continuously and constantly upon Amen, and that you will die as a Muslim. As a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala, one who submits to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so that's an important message. But what comes right after it as well is also important for us in in the sense of the community. It brings us together, Allah Subhana Allah says, where our destiny will be heavily. Let me hold on to the rope of Allah, what is the rope of Allah? Imagine you're slipping away. You're about to fall off a cliff. And that cliff leads you to jahannam for example, or imagine yourself
crossing over that bridge, the set off that goes to Jenna. And as you're walking over it, you slip and you fall and you hold on to this rope. What is the rope? It's the rope of Allah where it does seem to be heavily law he Jamia hold on to this rope together. It's a rope that takes you to success. It's also known as the Koran. Right, hold on to the court and that's why we're here out of the entire you know, Oakville Alhamdulillah we're here we're listening. We're learning we're trying to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala through understanding the Quran, where does the movie hamdulillah he Johnny ha Wallah found Roku and do not be divided. Remember last week or the week
before I believe, just as I was about to fly off to Vancouver, I think it was I had mentioned to and to all of us the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a development right, which is, you know, written for us in that book by a moment Bahati
where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam shows us a level of person or a level of piety that is better than prayer, and better than fasting and better than sadaqa better than prayer better than fasting better than sadaqa How can you be
Something that's better than these three things. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us in that simple Hadith that's only one line long, right? That can fit on one, one line, two sentences. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us the thing that is better than prayer than fasting, then sadaqa, that increases our email. And that brings us to a higher level is creating unity, creating unity. Imagine that. Now we see many massages that are popping up left, right and center. But why are they why are all these massages coming? Is it because we have a lot of Muslims? Or is it because we're divided? So I need my place to pray. You could pray but you're not
united with someone else. So you go and pray somewhere else? Is that a higher level of piety that you're going to pray somewhere else? Or is it a higher level of piety? instead of dividing and going to pray somewhere else, you come together and you hold on to that rope of Allah and you unite yourselves even though you might have grudges amongst yourself, you come together for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa tada to stand before Him in prayer. And you stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala also fasting together and we break our fast together we come together, we're united. Why our destiny will be Hadley law. Hey, Jimmy, how Allah tala coup was Kuru near Mata La Jolla, la comme is
good to Ida. So here, Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about a house and has a lodge, the two tribes of the unsought
who, prior to their belief prior to their Islam to their man, they used to disagree with each other to the extent that they would constantly be fighting and arguing between themselves. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in this example, the example of an ocean of hazards, how they would constantly be fighting and arguing amongst themselves, but Eamonn came to them light nor showered upon them. And so they become they became united. And that unity, instead of them fighting amongst themselves and hanging off a cliff, about to fall into jahannam. They believed in Allah, they created that unity, and that unity together brings them to gender. So they hold on to the rope and
they go up to gentlemen, imagine that.
Then in the next verse, what's absolutely important because we're talking about unity, and we're talking about the community we're talking about coming together. And I wasn't going to touch upon this verse, but I will very quickly and briefly, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in verse number 104, what if mu come to me I don't wanna you know, call Ed, my
wife, why Moodle, Nebula roofie? Why and how whenever I needed to move code, what
he can remove later
on, once you have that unity, and you see that your community is growing from amongst yourself, well tackle minions Come on man, from the community from the nation from the Ahmed Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there's a group of people, okay, this group is different. Who are they? You had to ruin that either way, it would have been better off when hona Anil mooncup they call towards goodness, not everyone's responsibility is to become a scholar. It's not, it's not the responsibility of every single one of us to become a scholar. That's not upon us. We don't all have to become extremely learned and those who are constantly going knocking on doors telling people come
to Islam come to me, man, we do that, yes, in our daily life, in our actions, etc. But from amongst us, there's a group of people who go a distance further.
And you're sitting here, you're a group of people who go the distance further than others, right? You took some time out of your day, you could have been at home sleeping and resting, but you came to learn something that's going to help you that's going to make you become from amongst the people. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from amongst those that are constantly calling towards the man, where we're not only in our actions, calling other people to Islam, they see us and they're intrigued by it. But we are people who when we're asked about it, we can speak, we show a good example. We see people doing bad things, we stop them from doing it. Why? Because this isn't good
for you. And we teach them about that. We encourage them to come away from the things that are harmful to them and get closer and come closer to what is better for us. So there's going to be a group from amongst us that we'll be doing that and there shouldn't be a group from amongst us that constantly does that. In verse number 118 Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Yeah, a un Latina Amano la Tokido be upon atomia Duany como la luna como
Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here he reminds us to not take first of all the hypocrites or the
Those who show hatred to Islam. Right? Don't take them as your advisors,
those who show hatred towards your deen. Now, this doesn't mean, you know, someone says I want to invest in something. And actually, it's probably better to have a Muslim investment, you know, advisor because they'll advise you towards what is best islamically. But for example, you know, you you want to have your car fixed. So you go to a mechanic, right? And this mechanic, he wants you to have an accident on the road, because he hates the fact that you're a Muslim. He wants you to have an accident. So he leaves those lug nuts out. He puts your wheels back on after changing your tires, right? He puts the wheels back on and he leaves them loose on one wheel on purpose intentionally.
Why because they hate you. But you go to someone who's a non Muslim who wants to change your tires. Why because of your mechanic and they do a good job not because they you know hate you or like you for who you are and your religion. No, that's their job. They do it. Is there anything wrong with that? There's nothing wrong with it. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. You can go to a non Muslim and ask them, you know, advice in that sense. You know, I'm hearing this noise in my car. What do you think it is? And they give you advice? Don't think all because there are non Muslim, I can't seek advice from them. This non Muslim mechanic all they want to do is cause destruction to
the home of Muhammad Sallallahu and even send them that's not true. Right? That is not true. What Allah Subhana Allah is saying here is don't take those who actively intentionally hates you, not you as a person, you as your dean. They would love for you to be upon their Deen and the example that we see here Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in the verse and moving on into the next verses is that they get pleasure when they see you fail.
They get pleasure when they see you fail, and they become you know, upset and annoyed when they see you succeed. Be careful of them. Those are the people you need to be careful of. So don't take you know face value the verses of Allah subhana wa tada and say you know what, now I need to find not only the Muslim butcher and the Muslim you know, restaurant to eat at because I need halal food. I need the halal mechanic and the halal you know, real estate agent and the hell out of this and the hell out that no use whatever Allah Subhana Allah provided for your handler we do have you know how to add real estate agents and Helen accountants and as in Muslim, right? But Allah Subhana Allah
allowed us to go to those and and benefit from those as well who have good intentions who want goodness for you as well. And we'll see that as we move on into the next verses. In verse number 130. Allah subhanho wa Taala and I have about seven minutes to go inshallah, right, in verse number 130 to 136.
Again, Allah subhana wa tada warns us about interest. And we spoke about this yesterday so we're not going to go over it right. He warns us about interest and he tells us after interest fear Allah subhanho wa Taala here we actually say fear of loss punishment why because yesterday we took the vs. how Allah subhana wa tada mentions in 278 and 279 of Surah Al Baqarah. To Be careful of interest Why? Because if you in you know, you constantly are engaging yourself in interest, and you don't feel this as a problem, you just you know what, no big deal. What am I supposed to do? And you just go ahead and you involve yourself and it's, it's as though you're waging war or loss of talent is
messenger wage war against you. So now here, Allah Subhana which Allah shows us in verse number 132 136. He warns us again of interest and he tells us fear Allah subhanho wa Taala had a fear of punishment and obey Him. do what is right Be careful, do what is right. Then Allah subhana wa tada in the verses going on to verse number 136. He describes Jenna for those who believe. You see the way that Allah subhana wa tada works is that he tries to make us understand you might want
something in this world and you might need to feel or you may feel inclined to you know, get involved in interest in order so that you can have it but then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next few verses, he talks about gender and he tells you about your home and gender and he tells you what you're going to have in paradise. And he tells you how beautiful is going to be how you know your home you're going to have sand it's not going to be sand, it's going to be saffron. Beautiful, looks nice to the eye. It smells nice. And your home you're going to have stones outside of pearls and rubies. And your home will be bricks, not bricks made out of you know the, the the bricks that we
see here and we get different colored bricks but they all look the same. They're just a different color. Right? Your home will be a brick made out of silver
In a brick made out of gold and a brick of silver and a brick of gold, imagine how beautiful your home is going to be. And so Allah Subhana, Allah describes these things for us genda so that we feel You know what, as much as I want something in this dunya Wait a second, I need to have something better in Jenna. And so I'm going to wait for that. And I'm going to sacrifice and have maybe a smaller home.
Or maybe, you know, have a not such a nice car or buy a used car instead of spending on on a car that you know, I'm going to in a few years have to get another car and then get another car and I'm going to be spending so much money, and then I'm going to have to take loans, etc, and pay off these loans. Maybe I'll just be a little bit more moderate in my spending, because my earnings are not so great. Why because in general, I'm going to have something even better in verses 199 and 200, the last verses of the of the sutra and we conclude with this, inshallah so we'll finish early so that you have time for Doha, and you'll have time to sit in front of the dates and have your mouth water
a little bit right. In verses number 199 and 200. Allah subhanho wa Taala creates balance in our hearts. He creates balance for us in our hearts. Now we just finished highlighting the verse or loss of Hannah which added remember we were saying, you know, don't take those who hate your dean as advisors for you. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala says
what in I mean a Helene kita below me you know Billa
Xena you know, you come
Xena e m hace
Connie la una
cola. A Judo Maria Donna B him in has said here is
Allah subhanho wa Taala creates balance in our hearts by teaching us that some of the people of the books, for example, the Jewish and the Christian, some of the people of the books, they actually believe in Allah
as in the belief that we believe in when it comes to believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala they believe in it too. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then says that not only do they believe in Allah, but they believed in what was revealed to them, and they believe in what was revealed to us. So they believe in Allah, and they believe in the revelations of the past and they believe in our revelation that came to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and he then says they will be rewarded. So Allah subhana wa, tada creates balance. You know, a lot of the time people say, Oh, the co founder of this and the co founder. That's right, the non Muslim this the non Muslim that and they're
constantly bashing the non Muslim, but understand that nowhere in our Deen are we told that we should be people who label others as in Oh, this person died as a non Muslim, they're going to help. How do you know
when we don't even know if I am going to die upon the man. And I don't even know if I will go to Paradise. I don't know. I live my life hoping and wishing and trying and doing the best that I can to get to genda but there's no guarantee that I'm going to get to agenda. I don't know. I have no idea. No way of knowing that I will get to there. I might live my entire life, thinking I'm upon a man but when I die Allah subhanho wa Taala proves to me You thought that you were upon Amen. But you were just showing others that you are upon a man that you believed but you didn't. And you didn't because of this and you didn't because of that and you didn't because of this and you didn't because
of that, and you'll be dragged into jhana
but a person who lives this life should not be walking around saying oh you know this person they're going to john this person they died. Oh yeah, they're going to gender there's a believer. Right? This person is an unbeliever No, no. Nowhere in our Deen does it tell us to label others because we don't know for ourselves how or what label we will have on top of our own heads. There's no guarantee. There's no guarantee. And so we need to work as hard as we possibly can to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to live a life as we said, while our Templeton Illa we're antem Muslim moon constantly submit to what Allah subhanho wa Taala brings to us and in the last verse of the
sutra, Allah subhanho wa Taala says
man who is Viru wasabi warabi to what Tacoma has
to have me
on Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here Yeah, are you Hi Latina Armando is spirou. Not just a regular type of patient.
Patience where you have to persevere through it. That's what's required of us is speed will will saw the room continuously endure what all people and unites right Hold on, have some strength. Grab a hold of the little hope you might have. And trust that Allah subhana wa tada will get you through that situation. Whatever hardship you're going through in life. Remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, he commends us to be patient. He commands us to endure, to endure to go through those hardships and hold on to some trust in Allah subhanho wa Tada. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about this word
morava right to have rebirth. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in different places. He mentioned different things, but I'll mention one Hadeeth that is explained to us in Sahih Muslim, where he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he explains rebirth to us by saying a person who makes will do
while encountering difficult situations or harsh conditions. But you still continue to make will do so I thought of this. I said, you know what's a difficult situation winter it's cold, the water is cold, there's no hot water. Or sometimes I'm on an airplane flying. It's hard. It's difficult, right? You need to make with oil and the water that's, you know, coming out of those taps. I never suggest to use it for anything more than simply putting on your hands. So now you might say okay, I'm gonna go get a water bottle and use that to make blue. It's difficult to make blue. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says making little in harsh conditions, walking a distance to
get to the masjid. Remember, it could be hot. It could be extremely cold, but you're going out. It's hard but you're getting to the masjid and waiting from prayer to prayer. So you prayed and you stay there and wait until the next prayer. Right? You're waiting from prayer to prayer. You constantly want to pray. You go through hardships in order to pray and you strive hard to continuously pray.
And after prayer, endurance, endurance, endurance, revolved revolves rebounds. You're going through hardship. It's not easy as difficult, but you're enduring that hardship. That is what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us. Yeah, you have Latina woman who is to be patient with it. Wasabi, what are the tool what de la la la come to flee home? What is your What is your your your reward for going through this hardship? La La come to flee hone that you will be from those who are successful. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to understand these verses of the Quran. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to forgive us, should we say or do something that is wrong? We ask
Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our days of fasting and our nights of pm and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those who live and who die upon Iman and Islam Minato Bella alameen wa salatu salam, Alberta, Canada, Vietnam hamadryad early us aqui wasallam I finished five minutes before here then make yourselves either comfortable here or comfortable there and make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala these are the last few minutes of the day of fasting.
