Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Ashraf al anbiya almost 17 Nabina Muhammad in Allah He of one of Allah to atoma teslim rubbish Rani Sati way acidity Emily Lok, determine lissoni efco Kohli, my brothers and sisters in Islam as said Mr. La Kumara Rahmatullahi wa barakato.
Today we continue with our tafsir. And this is the fifth night of Ramadan. So candlelight goes fast. It's already the fifth night tomorrow will be the fifth day of fasting.
Which means, you know, there's only
five, six of the of the of the month left.
Let's see if this thing goes good.
The internet connection seems to be a bit weak today, okay, should be fine. So the fifth night of tarawih and
we're going to be covering verse number 148 of Sora to Nisa, until verse 120, of surah Allah, pretty much the whole sutra. But I'm actually going to start at verse 136. We left off at verse 135. Yesterday and we'll continue verse 136 of Torah to Nisa. And the reason being is because it's one of those verses that begins with a young lady and so will recite that inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Arruda Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
you know the man who mean Oh, he was Sunni. Well, kita beenleigh Deena Santa Ana, la Sunni. While kita the lady
that I mean,
when I phone bill, he
he got he woke up to be he was only he was mean. de foccacia. Bala Bala buried.
In this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Hannah calls out to us as believers. And he says, Yeah, you have Latina Amano, oh, you who have believed me know, believe, continue to believe. And some of the scholars have to see it actually say, after our last panel where Diana orders us, or sorry, after he identifies that we're believers and calls out to us as believers, he tells us to have faith, so have faith in what you believe in, don't just believe in Allah Subhana, which Allah has faith in Allah as well. So it's easy to say I believe in Allah, and I believe Allah will help me and I believe that if I'm in a difficult situation, Allah will, you know, be there to assist me. But when you're in that
difficult situation, for example, do you have faith that a loss of how to avoid data will truly ensure the come to your assistance. So there's a difference between belief I believe in a lot, and a person could be in a hospital, for example, right, going through some sort of cure for an illness that they have. And they're feeling you know, down feeling a bit sad, because it's difficult upon them. And every person that comes in, who's a Muslim who comes to visit them, they say, Just be patient, you believe in Allah, just be patient, be patient. It's easy to be patient or to be told to be patient, but that element of faith that I believe and I truly believe, and I understand that a
lot will come to my help and assistance is the faith aspect of our belief. And so, you know, today my wife had brought up an interesting example.
We went to see
a, an old family friend, Pamela, he's 80 years old,
who recently moved here to stay with his son to to look after him. He's actually my,
my, my brother in law's husband. Sorry, my brother in law says my brother in law's father. long days kind of law. And my brother in law's father, he has autism, Alzheimer's, right.
And so Pamela, he's 80 years old, and went to see him and he was in the wheelchair and the nurse was there. And then when the nurse leaves their home,
my my brother in law, you know, bring the wheelchair over to the sofa, in front of the sofa and he goes to lift him up. So he takes his arm and he puts his arm over his shoulder, puts the other arm over it. He can't move. He's old so my brother in law is putting his arm over taking his father's arm and putting over him like that just like a baby You know, and my daughter falls asleep in the car. After thought are we we get home at 1230 at night you unbuckle her and you pick her up and she puts her arms over you and just sleeps on your shoulder.
Similarly, and now this is someone who's over 50 you know, picking up his father who's 80 years old, and he's lifting him out of the wheelchair and then turning him around and placing him down on the sofa. But before he does that, he spreads a piece of plastic over the sofa, just like we do when our children are small and they have their diapers on put plastic over the bed, for example, in case their diaper leaks on the bed, the exact same thing and my wife was like some kind of law. How is it that people don't believe when Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us and you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks about this and teaches this a habit of the Allahu anhu that when you get
older, you know that parents need to be looked after by the children. So respect your parents because when they get older, they become like babies again, right? They become like babies again, you're looking after your parents, just like they're a baby. And so some handler This is an aspect of life that we go through. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us yeah, you have Ludhiana Amano amino, believe in what amino Billa what our story he will kitabi la de la la la was truly believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his book that he came with. Then Allah subhana wa is Anna goes on to say while kita The Lady Antebellum in
public, and the books that came before as believers we believe in those books as Muslims, as you know believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala Menon we believe in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the last and final messenger. We believe that his book is the book of the Quran, right? The Quran that came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we are also made to believe that the previous books are also divine books that came from Allah Subhana, which I had. So as opposed to some of the other religions who might believe that their book is the right book, and that's the only book to believe in. We believe in the other books. We just don't follow it. We believe in them. So
when someone who's, you know, a non Muslim, says, you know, do you believe in the Bible? Yes, I believe that the Bible is the book that came to Prophet ERISA, Allah His Salaam to Jesus from Allah subhanho wa Taala that was sent to him. However, we don't follow it. We follow the teachings of the Quran. So we believe in the previous books, and we should never ever say no, I don't believe in it. And people tried to trick us into that. Do you believe in this? Do you believe in that and then they tricked us into saying something that's wrong? We believe in the books. And we believe in the in the messengers that came before as well.
Allah Subhana Allah says, woman yuck for Bella, hey, Mama, Kathy, what could you be he was when he went to mill ask her for coffee and voila, voila. And I'm buried. Whoever does not believe or is ignorant to, you know, completely disregards. For example, Allah subhana wa Tada, the angels his books that he sent the prophets or the messengers that came before that, when the Omen occurred. And the last day for God is Bala Bala and Derrida has certainly gone far. Right has has, you know, swayed away from the dean.
Then in, in verse number 170, of Salatu, Nisa, and remember, we're covering the surah that is named the women. And I had told you yesterday that some people will be listening and might have issues with what we're saying, especially when we were talking about the creation of Adam and how, and I did get messages over the night from a few people saying, How can you say that that's not true? It's in the Quran. How can you say it's not true, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about it as well. So it's not us that are saying it's not us. We're just, you know, learning what the teachings of Allah subhanho his hand and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are and so it's
very interesting how you know, people become very sensitive to certain things. Okay, we're studying the chapter of women. Okay, all Okay, now we need to pay attention, right? What is he going to say about us? Nelson Mandela, we're not saying anything new. This is all from, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In verse number 170 have gotten into
a lot of hanworth Allah shows us that the prophets were sent to us with the truth. Yeah.
como la tsunami bill help premier decom Nino hi Ronnie Lakhan. Why tech for roofer in Hema
T one out of work? No more whiny man hacky.
last panel with Anna here says oh mankind Yeah, you're right. He's calling us
To everyone not just to the believing people. Yeah a yohannes every single person Khadija Kumar was Tulu bill happy never become. The messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord. And remember we said that our Lord is the Lord of everyone. Allah Subhana which Allah God, the Supreme God, Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, you in Arabic we say Allah in English we say God, right? Well, we are referring to the God that we know of who is our created our Creator, our sustainer who provides for us who we worship and we worship only him. Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah here shows us that the messenger has come to you with the truth from Allah subhanho wa Taala so they leave and it
is better for you. So you notice how Allah subhana wa tada here doesn't call out only to the believing people. He calls out to the entire creation of human beings.
Yeah, a yohannes. And so he gives the command to believe it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, and Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to explain that. Here he highlights that the prophets were sent to us with the truth. Not only the prophets of Allah, Allah who has done them but the prophets of the past were sent with the truth. And Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on into verse number 171. And he says, Yeah, Helen kita Bella todo lo fi. Dini comb, wanna Taku
wants to hand over to Hana calls out and says yeah, Al Kitab the people of the book The Jewish and the Christian letter loopy Dini calm and this is not only a message for the people of the book, because the prophets on a longer Island he was also encouraged us not to have a Hulu do not have a Hulu Hulu is excessiveness to become extreme. Don't be extreme in your deen. So Allah Subhana Allah here specifically calls out to the people of the book the Kitab the Jewish and the Christian, lots of lofi Dini called Do not be extreme. Do not exaggerate, don't you know overdo it in your deen in your in your in your religion or your belief in the religion? Now the reason why I lost the panel
with Allah here is saying that and if we look to the you know, to the ending of the verse or in the middle, very close to the verse,
Allah subhana wa Tada. There's one Taku Sana.
Tahoe hi Ron Lacan in mahu ina
akuna Juana de la Buena Vista wati wa.
Beadle, he workI
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us don't say don't claim that Allah or God is three, the Trinity. Right? The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Do not claim that Allah subhanho wa Taala is three in one. He isn't. Allah is one. And that is it. And so here he says, well, that Taku thalassa don't say that he is three.
In num, Allahu Allahu wa, that Allah subhanho wa Taala the Lord to be worshipped is only one, God is just one. And so a lot of us. Now at our time, we think that the Christians changed their religion recently. And I know a lot of people talk about this when they talk about food, and say, Oh, we can eat the food of Al Kitab. But, and a lot of Muslims will say, but I don't Kitab they actually believe in three Gods as in the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Trinity. How can you know how does that make any sense when they're rendering? Not three Gods it's one God, but you know, they're sort of breaking it down into three. And so a lot of people will say we can't eat the food of other
keytab now, because they believe in the Trinity. And it's three in one, but this was actually something that they used to do during the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and before that as well. And also kind of what Allah speaks about it in the Quran. Right? at their time, this was something that they would do. And so he calls out to the people of other keytab don't have Hulu excessiveness in your deen as Muslims. Is it possible to be excessive in our Deen?
Is it possible?
It is possible and that's what we need to be careful of as well the Prophet sallallaahu it was Sunday morning this against being excessive in our religion in our belief. Some people will say no, we're not excessive in our worshipping of Allah subhanho wa Taala but some people become excessive
In the rank that they hold the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they increase his rank from a prophet and messenger to someone who is almost divine.
We know that whatever came from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of his words, his statements, his actions etc. is divine as in Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the command to do those things. To say what he said to go where he went to do the things that he did. That is divine 1,000,003.1 in our in who are in love with you, you have it is a working from Allah subhanho wa Taala it's something that came from Allah and the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam did it. But we see from amongst those people who claim to be Muslim as well, who worship the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now you might say, how do they worship, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I
have actually seen and witnessed people facing the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in their prayer. in Medina, in the city of Medina, they would go through sometimes the roof of mustard, the nabawi. And they would face they would look for the green dome through the windows, because the windows on the roof were very, you know, narrow, they would look for the green dome. And they know that under the green dome, that's where the area of the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is, and so they would face even though the Qibla would be this way, they would face the direction of the green dome that way, and they would pray to the grave of the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wasallam, I would see people go to genital area. So you're standing, you know, let's just pretend we're since we're facing the good luck, you pretend you're in must have the right facing the Qibla agenda. tillbaka is the cemetery the graveyard to the left,
which is the north side, in Medina, right, not over here, to the left of the Qibla, the direction of the Qibla just to the left of the mustard, you have the graveyard and I would see people go to the graveyard and pray to the graves of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu that were buried there. And then when they were stopped from doing that, they would go to the other side of the cemetery and they would pray facing the grave of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam so we're just trying to hide, trying to hide, and that goes to show us how people can go to an extent and extreme extent in their belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being a prophet and
messenger, thinking that he is to be worshipped, he is not to be worshipped.
We are to send peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yes, if no pain Rahim Allah he lists out dozens of different blessings or different rewards for sending Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for example, it increases your memory. It helps you in your day out, right stuff like that. But we are not to worship the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Well now Mohammedan Illa Rasul Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not more than a messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He was a human being. And he was chosen from the humans to be the Prophet and Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To bring
to us, the revelations are called an end to teach us the best way to live a beautiful way to live a way that had justice, a way that took women out of, you know, Oppression into a state where they were now liberated. Women were being killed. Women were being, you know, prosecuted, they were being
as, as children as babies, girls, when they were born, they were being bitten, they were being buried alive. Islam came and removed that
the slave women, that's another thing that we forget. A lot of the time we think that the fitna of our time is worse than the fitna at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we talked about gender relations, the slave women at the time of Jamelia before Islam, because I know some people will watch and they're gonna say, oh, Islam has slaves and promote slavery, etc. No. Islam, yes, Islam liberated leaves as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I shadowed the Allahu anhu Abu Bakr, radi Allahu and the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu. They would buy and freeze slaves, slaves that were already captured as slaves. They would buy them in freedom, Bilal rhodiola and the
famous muslin who would call out there then he was prior to Islam a slave and he was freed or the Allahu Akbar, and he was someone who the prophets of Allah who I knew he was suddenly made to be the appointed more then who even at the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so sad, he could not complete his other one and then he left the city because he felt hurt that the person who came to liberate leaves was no longer with them. And so
At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and before it I should say, before the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam slavery, slaves were made to wear less clothing. And women would walk around. And handler today, I think there's less children on purpose. Because yesterday, we were talking about a few sensitive topics. And there were quite a few, quite a few parents who brought their children today, there's less at their time, the slave women would walk around topless.
Right, they would walk around topless. Now imagine how difficult it is. You're seeing women walking around topless, like I know, in Toronto now in the summer, it's something that women are allowed to do within the city's core. Right? They can walk around with without their shirt on. Apparently, this is a law here, right. And so Pamela, it's something that you know, a lot of people Muslim, as well as non Muslim, we don't feel comfortable with it. Right? We don't even as a man, I don't feel comfortable when a man is walking around without his shirt on. Forget about, you know, discussing women. We don't feel comfortable when a man is walking around, without his shirt on in public. But
at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the fitna that was around was was something that was difficult to deal with. And this a habit of the Allahu anhu, they would have to, you know, try to control themselves and they're human beings, everyone, they're human beings. You see someone without their shirt on and as a man, you become attracted. And the same thing goes for the women, the slave men would walk around with less clothing on very, you know, you could say just boxer shorts, for example, right? Imagine people walking around in their boxer shorts. And these were people that worked hard. So they were strong. There was a fitna, it was difficult for people to see
that and to, to to control themselves, you you start to, you know, become attracted to someone else, and so on and so forth. And so lots of kind of water had sent the profits to us that came with the truth. And they came with justice, and they came to liberate people who were held in captivity. And this was something that Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly, you know, teaches us as we go through the Quran
I don't think we'll go through any more examples of being overzealous, but sometimes people become extra,
you know, zealous in their Ada in their worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala another example that I'll give, you know, some people have these strange numbers of us car Vica when we say you know, some kind of loss of Hannah loss of Hannah law, we count on our fingers to panela. Some people have millions of us car, where do they get this from?
I know some people that I spoken to firsthand and ask them, where do you get this prescription, of victory of remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's in the millions. I don't ever recall hearing this from any of our teachers, I don't ever recall reading it. I don't remember hearing it in the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam. If you say a certain Vicar, you know, 47 million or 27 million times or 16 million times, you'll get this and you'll get that and you'll get something else. So for example, you know, I met this one brother, who was saying, you know, some, and I don't want to identify countries, but somehow that sometimes you have to, right, he was saying
that some beer, some head leader, right of a group of Muslims in India, when he was there had prescribed for him to say that Vicar. And I think for him, it was 16 million times 16 million times, how are you going to finish this? He goes, No, you know, you have to understand if I do this amount every day, that means I complete this much in a month, and that much in a year. And if I do it every day, for every month, and every year that passes, it'll take me like 12 years. And when I finish it, you know, Hamdulillah, this will guarantee my entrance into paradise. That's what he was saying, like, Who gave you that guaranteed to enter into paradise, even the person who prescribed it to you
has no guarantee that they will be entered into paradise. So where does this come from? And it reminds me of, you know, my mother, she was raised Catholic. Now she's Muslim and hamdulillah. But she was raised Catholic. And she would tell us how in Catholicism the pope can write a certificate and give it to someone and when they die, if they're buried, you know that this certificate is put with them inside the coffin, and they're buried with it. That certificate is said to be a certificate that will that will guarantee your entrance into paradise. Right? And so Pamela, that's in Catholicism. In Islam, there's people doing something very similar. They're saying if you do this
amount of Vicar, this amount of altcar you will be guaranteed into paradise. How can we do that? Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give us this prescription? How can we just create something on our own and say to a person
And you are now going to be guaranteed entrance into paradise without any reckoning without any questioning if you simply finish this, you know 16 million or 20 million of this type of victim that's excessiveness in our Deen. That doesn't exist. Okay. We leave it up to Allah subhanho wa Taala in verse number 174 a loss of Hannah with Allah says
yeah, Johan grupo de
de como. Then
in a coma no one will be in Allah subhanho wa Taala again called out yet a yohanna. Not to the believers only to everyone in general. Yeah, I got the job, a kombucha no matter what become what unzen la con come neuron Medina, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord. What is that proof?
Right. There's a quote on the Quran. The Quran itself is something that differentiates between right and wrong. And it was sent to the prophets and messengers sent to the messengers and the prophets of course carried on the the message of the messengers and Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here.
ones in LA come more and more Bina sent down to you a clear light as in this is something that will take you from hardships and difficulties to ease and to comfort in life. How all of us have handled with Allah first of all sends us down the Quran. And the Quran is clear. And there's a group of people known as the for only human right? They identify themselves as the people of the Quran. The people who will only follow the Quran and not the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Have you heard of them?
Yeah, okay. Now the other day, one of my colleagues who's now Mashallah fairly well known as even in the GTA, he posted something on Facebook, something really interesting when I read it, I was like, you just you have to smile. He was referring to those people that only they claim to only believe in the Quran. And they say we only need the Quran. We don't need the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, first of all, I always tell those people listen, the Quran if you believe in it, it tells you Allah says in the Quran, as we took the verse yesterday, to follow a lot of hanaway, Tana, be obedient to Him and obedient to the prophets going along Lally was solemn, and to
respect the leaders that have been appointed for you. And he says in multiple different places accountable with Allah to follow and to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now these people say no, we don't need to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but in the Quran, it says to do that. It says to do that. That's the first thing. Secondly, what this shift posted the other night, he says,
you know, it's really interesting
that they claim to not follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Yet when they break their fast, they make sure that they break their fast using dates.
Where in the Quran does it say to break your fast using dates? Who used to break his fast with dates? prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so they argue so much saying no, we don't follow the sun that don't follow Mohammed, don't follow Mohammed, you live in a country where dates don't grow on trees. Why don't you break your fast with an apple? Why is it that you make sure you have dates to break your fast? Because you're following something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did? And so now you know you claim that you don't follow him, but you do it in certain things of your life. There's no balance. It doesn't make sense. And this is where Allah subhana wa
tada shows us that the Quran was sent to the messengers. And in this verse, the highlights to us it's clear in it, there's no it came to clarify things. And in the Quran, it clarifies for us follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we move on to Surah Toma Ada Just give me a second to change for us here.
we move on to school I don't know either inshallah turn that either. First of all, what does it mean?
means the table
similar to met either.
Close your close, he's checking it is like table tablecloth. The spread. Basically when we when we sit down you see the tablecloth is spread on the ground there and we're about to eat. What do you put on the tablecloth?
Food right you put the tablecloth down and you put the food on
On top, it's nice, it's clean. You might use the table for something else. You do your homework on it. You might do some arts and crafts, whatever. It's time to eat. You spread the tablecloth, and then you put the food on top of it right? And so we have the food. It's nice, it's clean Alhamdulillah Surah tilma is the surah referring to the tablecloth as in what you put on the tablecloth. It talks about food. And we'll see that right at the beginning of the panel with Anna begins the soul are talking about food, but at the end of the story as well a loss of Hannah which Anna highlights the story of ERISA, Allah has sent Jesus Prophet Jesus right as, as believers in a
lot of panels and as Muslims we believe that Jesus alayhis salaam for the sake of the viewers because I know there's non Muslim viewers, they messaged me so kind of like there's quite a few non Muslims that started watching hamdulillah and so as as, as Muslims, we believe that Prophet Jesus was a prophet. Okay. We believe that he was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala prophet a messenger.
So here in slaughter, Nikita will recite the verse Allah subhanho wa Taala says smilla rahmanir rahim
a Johan Medina Amen wufu B longkou the
E metal unami illa La la
la la la la como Yamaha a list for you at
home in La Jolla. Kuma Yuri read. And then in the next verse, we'll just recite the beginning of last panel with Allah says a Johann levena Amanullah Lucia
you do one
how'd Amaya ditto
be him? Yeah, that
must be him. What do you wanna? What either Hernan
do and the verse goes on. A lot of Hannah who went to Hana here.
He shows us in the very first is the very first verse of Sora. To ADA, that we need to fulfill our obligations. Yeah, a young Latina woman who I will fall below ood.
Okay, oh food deliver good fulfill your obligations upon you. Now those obligations could be obligations of various different types. It could be the obligation to pray the obligation to fast the obligation to pay your zakat. It could be the obligation to go for Hajj. And interestingly enough, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about hedge right here in the beginning, he talks about the obligations of food as well as making sure something is halal, and not consuming something that is how long and hunting at times when you're permitted to hunt, and how you're allowed to hunt, and what you're allowed to hunt. right because you're allowed to hunt certain foods that you can eat and
consume. So for example, you might hunt you know, you send a hunting dog out to hunt for some sheep, and it hunts the sheep for you and it catches it and you are allowed to consume it if you send it off with the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala right to hunt and kill for the sake of of providing something that's halal and pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala through it. So here we see that Allah Subhana Allah says overall deliver good parts of our obligation is Hajj and Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Hajj here.
As in the foods that we bring for Hajj. Can we eat them after? Yes, once it's made halal for us, so we bring them to eat. And this is interesting, you know, a lot of us we go for Hajj and we think oh, you know, Hajj is difficult at the time of you know, the people of the past even the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu and and you know, afterwards for example, a memorable quality when they went for Hajj, you know, they bring the animal that they're going to sacrifice with them. They traveled with the animal that they would sacrifice after their Hajj. And so we complain about hedge being difficult, but we're flying on Emirates, sometimes in business class, right? Even if you're an economy on
Emirates, it's nice and comfortable, right? You're flying, you're traveling. I think the AC is on now just turn the fans off.
So you're traveling on you know a beautiful airline. You're staying in five star hotels and we complain Oh, you know what, it's too hot. It's too hot to walk from here to let's say you know the wall in the back. As we exit our hotel, we enter inside my
To the hot arm that has beautiful air conditioning, and the world's largest sound system, and the world's most sophisticated underground air conditioning system, right because the floor is cooled. Most people don't even know that. And so some kind of like we complain about going for Hajj, we go to Mina, and we're staying in tents that are, you know, fireproof and hunted. Illa but just placed over sent, and then they put the carpet underneath it. Now in some areas, there's cement. And in some areas, it's even, you know, a nice beautiful buildings that are built and they're transitioning from tents to buildings. And we still complain we say hedges, difficult hedges difficult. How is it?
Yes, it's hard. It's hard. No doubt. We know it's hard. You go there, you get sick, etc. There are challenges. But when we compare hedge our time, to the hedge of the people of the past, we say to ourselves, yeah, even though this is hard, this is nothing compared to what they went through.
Imagine, you know, you go for hedge and you say Oh, you know what, it's hard to get some food. Yet you go to the store and you buy you know, some top orange juice one, one real and you drink your orange juice and you have zum zum coming to you in your tent. Right they bring you some some in your tent, and we say oh, you know, the zum zum is warm, it's not cold, we need something cold, it's really hot once something cold to drink. Imagine that their time where they had to carry their food and provisions for Hajj with them as they went on journey by foot. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us fulfill your obligations. If hedges and obligation upon you as then you have the money. You have the
time you have the energy you have the health you have, you know all the provisions that you need to go for Hajj, go for Hajj, don't delay. And here Allah Subhana which Allah touches upon a few things

And they're like that they should just go and get a job. They don't need my money. Why do we have to give them sadaqa. And so we criticize the person, Allah Subhana Allah says, Don't invalidate your sadaqa when you give it to someone by criticizing them afterwards and saying things about it, or you give it to them and you say, Oh, you know, here I'm really

But I drive this just because when I come to the masjid, you know, I just want to be humble. And I bring this car to the masjid. It's a Lamborghini. Right? No, that's not how we behave.

10 minutes. In verse number 11 Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you are Latina man with gordonia metal Nah, he had a
econ [email protected] what?
He found the atovaquone movement.
In verse number 11, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us yeah you Allah Dena Amano with guru near met en la jolla alikum. In in Hama, Coleman, and Episode Two, there was a time where there was a plot to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to narrations. Even Cathy had mentioned First of all,
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with with some of us However, during an expedition, he takes off his sword and he hangs it on one of the trees and the bedwin men comes and takes the sword of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and basically confronts him. He's next to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he confronts him, he's like, what are you going to do now? Who is going to save you now? He says a lot. And he says, who's gonna save you know who's gonna save? You know, what are you gonna do? Right? He has his sword. The bedwin man has the sword of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he's
He's basically in his face, like what are you going to do? Who's gonna save you who will protect you now? I have your sword, you're unarmed. What are you going to do? And he keeps saying, Allah, Allah is gonna protect you can't harm me is even if you want to and you try to and you have the sword in your hand, you can't harm me If Allah doesn't want you to harm me. Simple. at another time, you know some of the Jewish they had plotted to drop a stone on the head of the prophets and Allahu Allah usnm right, but another year, they had plotted to take a stone and appointed someone to take this stone, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to them to seek some sort of counsel and
speak to them. They were to drop this stone on the head of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala sends revelation to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam warning him that they are plotting to kill him and so he doesn't go he turns back, he turns back and that's the habit of the Allahu anhu they turned back with him. So here this indicates to us a time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, you know, there was a plot to kill him yet he was saved. And it indicates to us at any time when we are going through hardships, and there will always be people or someone that will try to defame Islam, defame Muslims, defame our Deen defame Allah defame
the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are not to go out into burn flags and you know, stomp our feet in public and stuff like that. We do what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, and we learned through his example and we take a step back and we analyze the situation and we deal with whatever situation we're going through with justice and honesty in the best, most effective ways. And so there will always be a time when someone will try to harm Islam or the Muslims etc. This Deen but Allah subhanho wa Taala if we trust Him, He will protect us and protect the deen. We don't need to protect Islam, Allah will protect it. However, we need to stand strong and stand firm as
ambassadors of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Okay, so we have to do our bit we need to do our part and stand up for what is right honesty and justice. But know that Allah subhanho wa Taala at times when we are trying and trying and trying and nothing is happening, keep trusting a loss of Hannah with Allah and His help will come in verse number 27. I don't know how this went to the next one is from Han Allah.
In verse number 27, to 31, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the story of how vielen cadila which we will take at a later point in time as well. But just to highlight that there a loss of kind of what Allah shows us the story of how vielen corbeil the two brothers, they were sons of Adam, Allah has sent him the children of Adam and they've they didn't really fight, Colville hit Hubble Hubble said I'm not going to fight you corbeil hit him. And the example that we get there, not murder, we're not talking about murder in this in this you know, instance, I mean, the verses go through it. But what I wanted to highlight is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that says no sin is
worthy of a swift punishment in this life and in the next. So there's no sin that is deserving of a punishment to come now immediately and to the person in the hereafter immediately.
For the one who breaks off ties of kinship.
The person who cuts off Rahim who cuts off their ties of kinship. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that that is the sin that is deserving of a swift punishment now in this life and in the Hereafter. So the lesson for us, do not cut off your relationship with your family, maintain your family relationships, your children, your parents, your uncle's, your aunts, your relatives, etc. maintain that relationship. Remember today at the beginning of the Hallock I was talking about, you know, the the brother in law of mine who was helping his father, he's 80 years old, and he's carrying him like a baby like a baby Subhanallah my wife was saying, you know, may Allah save us and
protect us from from going through such hardships were for years, you might have to sacrifice your time and your energy to look after your parents when you also have a family. You need to provide for your family you need to go and work who is going to look after them. And I remember today my brother in LA he said, you know we we agreed as a family. We're not going to put him in an old folks home. We will do what it takes to look after him. So can Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those that will be able to look after each other when we become old and take care of our family members. In verse number 54 Allah subhanho wa Taala
teaches us a beautiful lesson. Yeah, you have nothing in common man You're the man come and Dini for sofa yet to learn how to be calm in your head. Boom. What you
hibou Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need us to, you know, worship Him. We need Allah subhanho wa Taala and he says here that he can easily replace us if we leave the deen if we turn our back on Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah can replace us with other people that will work that will worship Him. He doesn't need us to worship Him. We need Allah subhanho wa Taala so don't think that you're doing a service to Allah. No, you worship we worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah because we need the service of Allah subhanho wa Taala to have Baraka and blessings in our lives. And in verse number 67 Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, teaches us not to be shy and to live as Muslims and Allah subhanho
wa Taala will protect us. Yeah, you had was to rubella Lindsey de la Kamiya love big ye lambda fan from beloved Terry salata, Allahu Yara similkameen and Allah subhanho wa Taala says while La Jolla has simulcast, meanness, and Allah will protect you from the people. So don't ever fear or feel as though you can't be a Muslim. And I don't like to use this word to practice Islam. But it just flows off the tongue sometimes, like don't feel that you can't practice Islam in public. We don't practice Islam. We live in Islam. We live as people who submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes we feel as though and I know I was asked this question recently in another Canadian city, I fear for my
safety when I pray in public. And so one of the things that our sisters do nowadays, it's very common, it's a new thing. And I'm gonna say it, it's live and it's public now and it will be broadcasted. But so Pamela, my wife was telling me, you know, some of the sisters, they pray in the changing rooms of department stores. So when it's time for saga, if they can't find a place to pray, they'll go, you know, take a few clothing, like you're about to change in the clothes in the changing room in a clothing store. And they'll go in, you know, close the door, past time for sada Hey, do my, you know, figure eight with my phone, find the Qibla Okay, quibblers this way, Allahu
Akbar pray in the changing room. So kind of that, but that's beautiful. That's amazing. It's amazing to see that, you know, even though they feel scared or shy or might not have the confidence to pray in public, they're finding a place where they feel safe. They're alone, a sister all alone, she feels safe. No one is going to bother her disturb her there. It takes two, three minutes, four minutes to pray yourself out. You're done. And you leave. No one is disturbed by it. You had a nice, clean, safe place to pray and hamdulillah that's a beautiful thing. And we will conclude I know we have one minute left before five minutes for the nn right, we conclude with verses number 112 to 118
which actually talks about neurotrauma EDA and the reasoning why it was named automatica the table spread and I will begin with that tomorrow in sha Allah Allah Why? Because the tablecloth is spread over there and the food is waiting. And I know some people when they come in and they see this amongst on the dates and the water they're like all man this halaqaat better be fast. So we're going to end it fast right? And we will go and sit over there and make do out before we break our fast and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our days of fasting and our nights of pm and a birder and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us from his blessings and bounties and to grant those who
don't have the food and the blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we enjoy. To grant it to them Emiliano Bella alameen wa salatu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, and remember again take advantage of this time to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala preferably, sit over there. Preferably sit over there. Why because when the end is heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us when it's time to break your fast break your fast and sometimes we're here and we hear the other end and we slowly go over talking you know enjoying ourselves know when you hear the other end break your fast you've been fasting for almost 18 hours
on us break your fast and that is obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala does not come with love or hate on a set MIT come to light all that account.
