Ramadan Tafseer Night 18
June 22, 2016
Mr. Mandela Hema al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah ashrafi me even more serene Nabina Muhammad Ali of la sala to Adam tasleem about my brothers and sisters Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
tonight is the 18th night of Ramadan panela and there's only
you know two more nights until we enter into the last 10 days of Ramadan
which is very interesting. So Canada how fast it goes.
I know it's the month of fasting which doesn't mean it's supposed to go fast but it does anyways and you notice how our schedule is so busy during Ramadan where I was so busy you know, you begin your day you go to work, you come back you you know you sit down at home for a little bit you might come here and then the night is long. But it's it's it's long but it's short because you're so busy that you know the whole month flies by you. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to allow us to benefit from this entire month. I mean
we begin today from verse number 28 of swords
and we will go to the end of the surah and then sort I said that as well as what I thought it
so surah two, Zeb from verse number 28 until the entire sort of Sabha right up until the end of sort of out there inshallah Tada. We begin with versus number 28 to 32 and Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here. Yeah, a Johan nebby openni azwan jika.
To read in Al Hya. Ted dunia was in Taha Fatah Han, a photographer and a net Wilma Deering.
What was suddenly
jameelah Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell his wives to tell his wives right. If you should desire the worldly life in its adornment, if you wish to be here on Earth, to enjoy this earth and all the beauties of this earth, then come I will provide for you and give you a gracious release as in I will, you know let you go. You will not be one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you need to just go just live enjoy yourself the life that you want to enjoy. And so this is a message from Allah subhana wa tahan. And it goes on in verses number 29 as well all of us have hanaway Tana says but if you should desire a lawn, His
Messenger and the home of the Hereafter, then Indeed Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you a good reward. And Allah Subhana Allah then explains the reward for the mothers of the believers, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know them as Omaha's, meaning they're the mothers of the believers.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights there in the verses that if they were to sin, then their sins would be double the punishment or double the sin, then if we were to do it, so they're not like the average person, they're the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while at the same time, whatever good deeds that they do, they are rewarded double for those good deeds as well. So the wives of the prophets that along with it, who has sent them are given this choice.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to give them this choice, if you desire to simply earn, and you desire to have the beauties and the bounties and the blessings of this earth and try to, you know, just enjoy yourself in this earth, then you can go and have it. But as one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will probably struggle, that's really what's meant you will probably go through some hardships, hardships that are more severe than the hardships that other people will experience as well. And this is a lesson for us that those from amongst us that are righteous, they will probably be tested more than
the average person. Or maybe they're not tested more often. But when a test does come to them, when a hardship comes to them, that hardship is so severe, when someone looks at it, they say, Well, I was handled, I might have a lot of problems in my life. But this person is, you know, the one problem that they're going through is so great that you know, I'd rather have all the little problems that go on in my life. And that's just the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala he tests those who he loves, either habila who I've done intellia as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us when a loss of hanaway Talon loves one of his servants, one of his worshippers, he tests
And so someone might go through multiple tests, but like we said,
One of those tests might be even more severe than all of the little tests that we go through. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to get through those tests I mean, we know that we're going to be tested
And huseby to them and dead Hello Jenna as Allah subhana wa tada shows us um hi Cebu to todo con origin h lm t comm Latina Hello kabini calm you do you think you're going to get gender and you're not going to be tested, like the people of the past, they were tested. And they were, you know, going through these hardships and we see the tests of the people of the past of Allah, they were really difficult. And we think we're simply going to get genda and say, Oh, you know what I believe in Allah, Allah, Allah, I believe, and that's it, I'm going to enjoy all the luxuries of this life. And I'm going to do all the things that I want and I'm going to earn whatever I want from wherever I
want however I want and enjoy the luxuries of this life. No, we need to go through a little bit of hardships as well as believers even in what we earn, how we spend the things that we do in life, all of it. So Hannah law is regulated by Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, it's regulated. And so we can't expect to simply live the life of this world like every other person, the average person and when I say the average person, I mean like the non Muslim, the non believer and earn what they earn, and just enjoy our lives know whatever we earn. We know we have to give Zakat we also have to give sadaqa we know that we need to spend on going for Hajj, we know that we know that we need to
maintain the massager does Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us and so what a Toba right that we maintain the massage etc. And so these are all things that we're going to spend on and we will see challenges in every aspect of life. We are tested with wealth, we're tested with health and health some handle is a huge test that many of us go through, were tested with children were tested with no children were tested with our spouse were tested with our parents were tested with our education, a simple education nowadays. So Hannah law students say how can we earn education? How can we actually seek education from universities, when it's so expensive and so difficult, even though it might be
subsidized in some parts of the world, but it's still so challenging, because you have the expensive school, the tuition, and then you have food and you have transportation and you have lodging, and, and some people may have a family at the same time. So there's a lot of difficulties that we will experience. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for those that are going through challenges and tests in life. I mean,
there is one thing though to sidetrack from these verses that helps us through these tests. And that is our EMA. And so you'll notice that, like we said, the more righteous from amongst us will receive tests that seem extremely difficult for us. But to them, it might not seem like a difficult test at all. And that's because there is at such a level, that whenever they're tested, whenever they're going through a hardship, it doesn't seem like it's hard upon them. Like you might look at a family who's lost a loved one. And they will mourn for days and days and days sometimes, you know, I know in some countries from Pamela, they say, oh, we're gonna mourn for 40 days, it's like pre meditated
or pre planned for 40 days, we will mourn the loss of this person's life. And some people might not say, I'm going to mourn for this amount, amount of time, but four days, sometimes even four months, they will be so sad, they will weep, they will become dehydrated, they will lose lots of energy, they will start to become weak. And that's simply because they're, you know, they're so disturbed by the loss of this person that they loved. But the person in their family that might be righteous, you know, they might shed a tear or two, they might, they might feel that sadness for a day, maybe two days, three days at max, but then Subhanallah, you'll notice that it wears off, they start to feel
ease, and they're comforted their content. You might notice some people they lose a family member and they never even cry, and you ask yourself, did you even love this person? Like it might have even been their parents? Did you love them? And they say, of course I love them. They're my parents, but handler when you look at the way that they died, and how their janazah was, and the amount of people that showed up and how easy things were, and how quickly it was from the time that they died until the time that they were buried, and how people came righteous people and how people in different parts of the world that making too high for them. I should I be sad. It's a beautiful
thing, that this person Subhanallah was called back to a law in a beautiful way. And so that person feels there's no need for me to be sad, because I know I need to return to a law one day and I don't know there's no guarantee How am I going to return to Allah? Maybe I won't even be a believer whether he has a villa We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us, but we don't know what's going to be our end. Will I die as a believer or will I die as someone who just believes
Will I die in righteous deeds? Or will I die as someone who's being tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala to the extent that I give up my Deen or I go in and commit sins and that's when Allah subhanho wa Taala takes my life. And so you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that there's an easy way for us to get through these hardships. In Surah Surah Baqarah. We took those verses when we covered the sewer increase in our Eamon and we will feel more at ease when Allah subhanho wa Taala tests us with any sort of difficulty in life.
So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
were given this this choice by Allah through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you could choose you can either be righteous and pious and be the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and give up the luxuries of life because we know very well when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died, he asked the Allahu Allah, what did you do? You know, how much wealth do we have? And she says, 17 hours. And then he asks, he passes out. He tells her given in southern, he passes out, he wakes up a little bit later. And he asks again, what did you do with the 17? Did you give it away? Did you give it yet? And she says no, he had a little I was busy looking after you.
And he gets a little upset. He says give it give it away. Why are you keeping it right? Get rid of it. That was the wealth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? Imagine us. Some of us, we look at our bank accounts. And we think Pamela, what am I going to do with all this money? And how am I going to spend it? How can I use all of this money that I have? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a little bit and he gave it away a lesson that I want to derive from these verses
with regards to the choice given to the wives of the Prophet, salallahu alayhi wasallam. And the choice to either you know, go and enjoy this, this dunya or to sacrifice from it and remain one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One of the points that I want to bring up is that many brothers when they're looking for a spouse, they expect to implement this upon their future spouse as well. Like they will go Subhana Allah and I know this because, you know, families have brought this to my attention. Brothers themselves. When they come they say, you know, what is it? Is it permissible for me to request from my wife, you know, to live a life of Zod right that
she's she gives up everything of the dunya. And his brother comes in. He's got like a nice Bling, bling watch. And he's asking that question, right? And he pulls up in his beautiful brand new car. I'm thinking to myself, like you want some sister who's gonna just give up everything on Earth, but you're enjoying all of it. Right? And this, this is something that was given to the wives of the prophets that along and he was one of them. Why did Allah Subhana Allah give them the choice, because they're the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that future spouse of yours or for any of us as brothers now that are doing this to our wife. We need to understand that this was
specific to the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and through it is a lesson for us, that we should be people that try to give up our love for the things that we have in Estonia. But that doesn't mean that we don't, we can't have them. We can have them. It's halaal. It's permissible, and they could have had it as well the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was someone that sacrificed the little things that he was given throughout his day, he would get rid of them. And so it was a lesson for his wives, listen, you're not going to live a luxurious lifestyle, and shut up the Aloha in her home.
She just had like what we call today a comforter, right? a comforter or, you know, a thick sheet, not even a blanket more like a blanket rather than a sheet. And somehow, unless you would have that and she would just lay that on the ground to go to sleep at night. That's it. That's what she slept on. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would wake up in the middle of the night for 200, he would, he would take the legs of a shot of the lava and her and bend them bend her legs at the knees, to move them out of the way so that he had place to make such that. That was how small they're homeless. So it's not like they were living a luxurious lifestyle. They had such a small
home. And and when we think of it's the beauty of it as well, like he would have to move the legs of his wife aside so that he can pray, you know, Salah in the middle of the night to Allah subhanho wa Taala how close they were right to each other. That's a beautiful thing. But it also indicates to us how simplistic the lifestyle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so don't implement this upon your families don't try and force them into this panela you know a lot of the time people put crazy crazy regulations upon their spouse. Right crazy regulations both husband and wife they do this back and forth sometimes. You know, I expect this from you okay, because you did that I expect
this from you. Subhana Allah you are not marrying. Or the Allahu anhu nor are you marrying Fatima. Sorry, Khadija, the Allahu Allah. And at the same time sisters don't expect that this brother is going to be aboubaker Amata or
Someone of the caliber of Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam, we try to get to that level, no doubt, but you're not marrying them. So don't think that they're going to give up every single thing on earth just for you. It's not going to be that way there needs to be compromise. And at the same time, don't make it you know, a case like I mentioned to the brothers earlier, where you as the brother because you go to work and you earn maybe your wife works or not, but as brothers usually as the husband, you're the one who's bringing home the wealth. So don't be the one that's simply going and enjoying all of your wealth. You have a beautiful car she's driving a broken down 1987 you know,
Toyota Corolla, right? And you're driving this brand new Mercedes with all the options in it and you know, all the sensors and the leather and the air conditioning and everything, but she's you know, suffering some handle on you tell her Oh, you need to be you need to be like the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, well, you need to be like the prophets that allow you to send them right where whatever he got, he would give and whatever he had that was comfortable for him to do what he needed to do in his day. That was enough. That was enough for them. Subhan Allah, we move on in sha Allah hota Hannah, verses, verse number 32. Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights something
really interesting. A lot of people talk about the wife or the spouse or the women and how their voices our and this is something that we were taught culturally but Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions here to the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam don't speak softly, or, you know, gently, beautifully to others.
And Allah shows us in verse number 32, that that's because someone might hear you
and become attracted to your voice. Right? They become attracted to you and that's, that's just because of weaknesses inside of us, right? That's something that we have as human beings.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam don't speak softly, speak to them directly, right speak to them in a way where you know you get your your message across and Subhanallah if we look at how Allah subhana wa tada words it
you know, don't speak to them softly.
So that you know, those whose heart has a disease in it or they might, you know, feel inclined or you know, attracted to you. And that would be something that obviously is sinful Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want us to lure others in and try to have you know,
what's the word I'm looking for? flirtatious, flirtatious behavior with others, but Allah subhana wa tada it shows the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the end of the verse, speak to them in an appropriate speech, In a word, you know, in a tone of speech, where you can communicate with them. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. As people misunderstand, they think that a woman is not allowed to speak to a man at all, like you can't speak at all. You know, they're not allowed to answer the phone when it's ringing in the house. And I know people like this where they will not answer the women who are at home will not answer the phone when it rings. Because they're, they're
made to feel culturally that you know, no, no, you can't answer the phone. This is this is for the men only because someone who, who's on the other end of the phone might you know, think that you're trying to flirt with them and it's the phone right? It's the phone but some kind of Allah Allah teaches us as well speak appropriately. Don't be like Oh, how are you doing? You know, the other day I noticed Oh, Mashallah, you know, and you start to say things about each other's behavior and your your conduct and so on. I noticed this about you Mashallah, you looked really good in the way that you were dressed. The hijab was amazing. You should wear red to pay jobs to tell your husband, I
said to buy you lots and lots of red hijabs. What? No, that's not what we're supposed to be telling someone else's wife Subhan Allah, right. We're supposed to be people that when we interact with each other of the opposite gender we interact based on what is needed. I called because I wanted to know, let's say if your husband is free to go for a coffee after today, he's not there. Alhamdulillah I don't need to ask you. What's your favorite coffee? Don't worry, I'll buy it for you and send it to your house with your husband. No, you don't need to ask that. Right. That's completely irrelevant. What we need to do is interact with each other in a speech that is that is good, that's
understandable, that's neutral, and speak to each other and what is needed and leave the rest. In verse number 41, to 42.
And Muslim hanworth Allah says
a Yuan Latina, mano Koroma, the Quran,
Kathy once said me who cannot
sleep Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us to remember him a lot. Yeah, Ayala, Dena, Armand de la victron Kathy Iran. Remember a lot a lot. And this, you know, indicates to us that we should be constantly busy in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam indicated
To us Rotorua, the the moistness of our tongue our tongue is busy with the remembrance of Allah. As in it's constantly remembering him all the time. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us remember a lot a lot with quote Allah the Quran kathira was said up bihu Bukola 10 was Leila and exalt Him morning and afternoon. Now this indicates to us also the the US car a Saba and car and masa. So the car the vicar of Allah subhana wa tada the remembrance that we do in the morning, as well as in the evening. And the morning of cod is usually done after a solid alpha job. And the evening of cod is done between our son and mother didn't like the time that we're in now. And this is why it's a time
that is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Just before Mother's Day is a time window has accepted a person is busy in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then at the end of the remembrance constantly remembering Allah, Allah is pleased with them. So you make dua and your Doha is more likely to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Similarly, after we pray, our Sadat
is a time when you know it's good to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala when it's raining, the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is descending upon us he's being merciful upon us make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. On the Friday, the one of the hours on Friday and the scholar say it's the last hour on the Friday but we should seek the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the day by sending lots of Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then what do we notice we make dua to Allah subhana wa tada and our Torah is more likely to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we constantly remember Allah, we don't need to tabulate how much we remember a
loss of Hanoi Tad. So we don't need to sit there with a test beer. Or we don't need to sit there with our phones now that have all these applications, including the sound effects, you click it
right, it's like you're flicking that bead across, you know, in some kind of law. interesting how the applications have it. It's nice, it makes us feel good. But so how are you don't need to tabulate except for the times when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that you you know do a vicar or a test be a certain amount of times, like the sphere of thought the amount of the love and now that we do after our Salah.
After a compulsory prayer, we recite ayatul kursi We also you know do Escada stuff it'll last off it'll last off it'll last three times. This is a son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah enter Santa Monica Salah is hanging on the wall. It was hanging on the wall and we'll put it up we just you know new paint on the wall hamdulillah there used to be hanging here the car right that we recite after Salah. From amongst that is the test via Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah 33 times each 33 times Pamela 33 times Alhamdulillah 34 times Allahu Akbar in another narration 33 times Allahu Akbar and then Subhana lo Alhamdulillah
Allah Allah and Allah Allahu Akbar Allah Allah La quwata illa Billah We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to do this. Sometimes we neglect that we neglect this to be this son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we end up quickly rushing to pray our Sunday, like after Tada, we many of us are sorry, after a show. Many of us you'll notice many people after a show is done immediately they stand up and they start praying your son and the person who does not pray those two kind of Sunnah before Tada. We begins, they get the question by a few people. Why Why don't you ever pray your son? I never see you pray your son. My question that I tell those people is
to ask them. Why is it that you didn't recite? ayatul kursi? Why is it that you didn't do your tests? Why is it that you didn't ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness after sada? Why is it that you did not recite, for example, Hola, Hola. Hola had a bit of a little fella with a bit of goodness. Why didn't you recite that? Those are all some of the profits that Allahu Allahu wa sallam, why are you pointing the finger at one person who did not stand up and pray to God, after the compulsory prayer when you neglected all of these different signals that that person was busy doing? All right. And then what do we do we all stand up and we pray 20 together or together,
whatever, we pray that Tada, we're together, and we're all busy pointing the finger at the one or the two people that are not praying those two have some which is not compulsory to begin with anyways. So we need to be careful what we do. As soon as the profits in the long run he was one of them is of a type but there are many different types. And when it comes to destiny, as well, there's tests that are shown to us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And there's test v. That is not there's no you know, a mention of certain numbers that we need to do sometimes and we say, Oh, no, you have to do this. You have to recite this uh,
amount of times x y Zed test V or Vicar and you will get this reward. Where did we get this from? If it's not from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam nor if it's from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, then who came with this statement? And that's what we need to ask ourselves. Allah subhana wa Taala shows us here with good Allah the Quran kathira Don't waste your time counting, you can count on 100 times for 3333 33 that's fine, or 34 fine, that was related to us through the sum of the profits and along that it was summed up outside of that we should be busy constantly with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not focus solely on Oh, you didn't do it this amount of times, you need
to do it 10 million times, etc. Verse number 53.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in verse number 53,
the etiquettes on entering the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is no longer with us, we know that right? In can make you tuned in omega tune Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will die and has died. He was living at the time of the Sahaba of the Aloha and home he is no longer with us. However, we learn etiquettes of entering the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Because even though we're not entering his home, we might enter the homes of others. And so entering the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was something that we would this habit of the long run home would do. And they would learn how to enter and how to exit and when to enter and when to exit. And that's something that we should learn and treat the the, the friends of ours the same way or our relatives and not abuse or take up their time, we'll go through it in English very quickly, because it's a lengthy area, or you have believed do not enter the houses of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam except when you are permitted for a meal without awaiting its readiness.
So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam invited his hobby or Sahaba over to his home, don't go, you know, you know what, he invited us for nine o'clock, right? Because he thought nine o'clock or 905 today.
Don't go at seven o'clock and sit there and chill. Anakin What's up? Yeah, we thought we would just come early and just hang out out of sort of law, right? Or you go over to your friend's house and they invite you over for a thought. But you go to their house have had a lot and you come really early, and now they're like scrambling, okay, we need to finish making the food and we need to finish cleaning up but now they've come to our house. So we need to sit down and the wife is not ready yet. The children are not dressed etc. You went too early, don't come too early. If you were invited for a thought. If thought doesn't mean 7pm it means nine o'clock because 905 we break our
fast. So come 10 minutes early, come 15 minutes early, nothing more than that. Be respectful of the person's time. That person might be busy in the last few moments of the day, in remembrance of Allah, in making dua to Allah in Riba in recent recitation of the Quran, they might be busy studying, they might be busy reading, they might be busy learning, they might be busy teaching, whatever it is, but they're busy with something and so we shouldn't take away from their time as well. Then we see Allah Subhana, Allah says, without awaiting its readiness, so don't come before until you know you're sitting there waiting for the food. But when you're invited, then enter. So
you've been invited for a slaughterhouse go over time if you came early, because you were beating the traffic, sit outside and recite quota on or something, right, don't just enter someone's home be like, yeah, I'm here early, I thought we'd just chill and play some video games or something. Maybe that person doesn't want to do that. In the last few moments of Ramadan. We're talking about Ramadan now because that's where we're in. Right? And then Allah Subhana Allah goes on and says, and when you have eaten disperse, without seeking to remain for conversation.
Now, this is really interesting, if the host is offering you DJI. They're offering you a lot dues and jump, jump and Barfi and you know, all of the extras that we get Alhamdulillah that's good. Then after the Chai, they're bringing out bond and then they're bringing out coffee Alhamdulilah bond that's Mita right on the sweet bond, not tobacco or anything in it, right? bond that's permissible. hamdulillah and so if the host is giving you these things, Alhamdulillah that's good. They're not kicking you out of their home. They're asking you Okay, we have tea, we have you know, coffee, we have sweets, desserts, fine. After the desserts, usually we are all we're always gonna have a meal
and then dessert. Once that's done,
and maybe they want us out of their house, maybe they invited us for two or three hours and they have somewhere else to go they have something else to do. Don't just sit and chill. excuse yourself. And that's mentioned here as well. excuse yourself, dismiss yourself ask permission before dismissing yourself as permission from the people. You know, there's like a low height and hamdulillah The food was good naked, nice to have for them. This was a son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you and graduate you know
In what you gave to us and inviting us into food May Allah subhana wa attallah increase in your yodas in your provisions May Allah you know bless you with earnings etc whatever make a nice draw out to them for them and then ask permission you know it's time for me to leave now I need to go if they say no no chill Wait wait a second there's something else that's in the oven is coming with this bond you know we just ordered it from the store it's coming. Those that don't know a bond is May Allah subhanho wa Taala help you to type on one day is very good, right? Meet up on only sweet bond. That's the condition. But Subhana Allah, you know, that's something that we need to
understand. Don't take advantage of the person whose home we're in. respect their timings, especially now during the month of Ramadan. someone invites you over for a thought have a thought and quickly get up and leave that person. Forget about telawi like oh taraweeh starts you know, he was at 1035 tarawih starts at
11 for example, or 1055. We'll get there for 1055 Don't worry, no, that person wants to beat in the mustard early. They want to make sure before they want to get the front row they want to be there for a shot not Tada. We want to be there for a show. So be you know, people that are conscious of the other people and the host in particular who's inviting us over to their home. And don't delay. Don't be like Oh, you know what, where's the Chai? After food? Where's the child? No, no, you know, brother, sister, we make Jaya, we're going to be late for a shot. Oh, it's all It's okay. Don't worry, we'll go to so and so mustard just around the corner. And then you rest again in there.
You're the last person to park in the parking lot or you illegally parked in the street somewhere and you're rushing for Sala we're not supposed to be doing that we're supposed to be getting to sada Irby.
And so Allah Subhana Allah shows us those etiquettes there with regards to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we can apply those etiquettes to our life as well. In verses 7271
verses 7271 Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah,
Johan levena Manuel de Pon la Haku
Sadie the useless la Come on. como de la ku back home
fast foods and now the
last panel what to highlight shows us these verses that are normally recited in a joma football at the beginning of the football we hear this Yeah, you're Latina taco la wakulla Colin sadita you slay Amala como de la uno de como la la hora Sula, hufa codfather fosun alima. Here Allah Subhana. Allah commands us to have Taqwa. And that's highlighted. we've highlighted it before we mentioned it earlier and we learn it almost every single day when the email mentions it as well. However, Allah subhanho wa Taala says what Gulu Colin said EDA and say or speak words which are appropriate and speak with justice. Speak you know the truth and this is really what we want to get to hear. What we
learn from these verses is to speak with the truth if we're not saying the truth don't speak. Men can you know be law he will Leo mill earlier for Leo cola Hi, Ron l Leah smart as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us whoever believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Day of Judgment. Finally aku hiren then say goodness, say things of goodness. Oh, or Leah Smith, don't say anything. Don't say anything. And in another Hadith, it goes on Allah subhana wa Taala shows us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his statement he mentions, if you have nothing to say, then your silence is the best thing to say. You're not saying anything that's
better for you. That's rewarding for you. Because you have nothing good to say. So you're refraining from saying it. And because you're actively holding yourself back from saying something that's wrong, or saying something that's bad, you might be absolutely right. But your backbiting someone, you don't say it and Allah knows that you're not saying it. He knows your efforts and controlling yourself. It's not easy. You're are rewarded for holding back from saying what you want to say. So Subhanallah, that's amazing. But it's important for us to speak the truth. And as Muslims, we need to be people that uphold the truth always. When we see an injustice, we speak up. And we speak up
with wisdom as well. So we need to speak the truth with wisdom. We don't simply just get up and start speaking and saying things without thinking of the repercussions of what we're saying maybe we're not seeing it at the right time, or in front of the right crowd. We're not addressing the right people. Maybe I'm not the right person to be addressing this topic. I don't know how to defend it when someone begins to ask a question, for example. So it's best that if it's time to speak up, and we're not capable of speaking, we go and we voice our opinions and concerns to those that can speak and they are the ones that go and speak the truth. For us. We move on to Surah number 34. sort
of set up
In this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala titles it sorta sobor also known as Shiva, we covered this during the story of Sulayman Allah has sent him right in which surah
so what I'd send them in right at the end. And so a lot of what's mentioned here at the beginning of the sutra, Allah subhana wa Tana, in verses 10 and 11 talks about why Allah has sent him and his favors that have been given to him from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We also see one thing that's, that's really beautiful, is how Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights
the importance of working honestly, and to count everything precisely as he's mentioning, in these verses with regards to Deadwood out of his center we know that that would Allah His Salaam was someone who would mold steel as in he would, you know, it was an iron worker, a blacksmith, if you want to call it right, someone that worked with steel worked with metal, and he had the ability to mold it with his hands and Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, gave him that as one of his one of his miracles, one of the things that he could do, but some handler we see in the story of debu. Daddy, his setup as well as Solomon and his setup was that they were people that even though they were rich
in their kingdom, they earned what they had. They worked for what they earned, they worked for it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in these verses.
How, how, how dare Buddha Allah His solemn earned his earnings through through metal, but he told that would Allah has sent him to be honest, and just in what you're doing in the work that you're doing? Count, even you know, when you're making a coat of arms, I have a microphone in front of me. And I'm seeing these little things of metal, you know, the traditional coat of arms, you have these rings, and you intertwine all of the rings together, and it creates that coat of arms. And it's like the shield. If you hit it with a sword. Yes, you get bruised, but somehow that it stops because it because of the shape of it and the dynamics of it, it stops the sword from actually cutting you
write. So lots of how to attend our shows that Buddha has sent them count everything precisely. I don't say you're going to make a coat of arms, for example of 1000 you know, interlocked chains, but you only make one that has 950 count it properly. Make sure that you're doing the work that you're doing is honest and Justin precise. And that's something that's that's unique. So Pamela to dealt with Anna, his son, he worked for what he had, he worked for what he had, and he didn't take anything from the people even though he was a prophet. He refused to take from the people. He worked hard to earn what he had. And it's a lesson for us some kind of law to make sure that as believers,
we don't take anything for free. We work for what we earn. Someone says I will pay you for this job. Make sure that you work for what you earn, if you did not work for it, and they're giving you the money Oh, Mashallah, you did the job, but you didn't actually do the job the way it should have been done, then give them back a portion. Give them back a portion and say, You know what, you paid me to do this job like this. However, I didn't make this product the way it should have been made. I used a lesser grade of steel or I did this or I did that. If they say no problem, it's still gonna be as strong, it's still gonna be fine. Okay, that's good. Take it. But if you cut corners, and you
intentionally cut corners, without letting them know that you're cutting these corners, you did this on purpose, so that you can save because you thought, Wait a second, as you're producing this, it's going to cost me too much. No, no, no, I can't do this. Let me cut some corners, and you produce something to them that on the surface looks good. But when you look deeper, it's not the product that they paid for. Make sure that you're honest in that. And we learned this through the story of Deadwood and his sentiments on a man and his centum as well. Versus number 12 to 13 and 14 as well. discusses what a man it has sent him and the favors that were given to him the wind and the workers
that worked for him. Verse number 14, the death of Solomon it his senem versus number 15 and 17 the people of Shiva, which is present day Yemen, okay, present day Yemen.
They were disbelievers, what can you tell us about them? I mentioned it the other day, what can you tell us about them?
right they were worshipping the sun, okay. And Allah subhana wa tada destroyed them. They had destroyed their crops. So they used to have lots of beautiful crops, they were known for having produce, and Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed their crops by sending a flood to them. So these are a few of the things that we learned from Surah said that I don't want to spend too much time on it. So that we can go through sort of felt it as well. And sort of thought that I must have kind of went ahead taala begins Alhamdulillah validly this summer to
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us Alhamdulillah father
As someone who is
Allah subhanho wa Taala referring to here.
Right? So he's the one who created it. So who is he referring to here?
mandwa thought that is similar to Allah. Exactly. So he's referring to Allah subhanaw taala he's referring to himself. And you notice how Allah subhana wa tada begins by praising himself and he encourages us through the statements to praise him every time we were cited, we are praising Allah subhana wa Alhamdulillah thought it is somehow it will our Creator of the heavens and the earth, who made the angels and this sutra is also known as which one is there another name for this one?
Right this one of the angels are melodica right. So, people will refer to the soda of the angels water melodica which is this what I sort of thought that he is founded as somehow it was out of
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us he made the angels messengers having wings, two wings or three wings or four wings. And this indicates to us that they are different in number in in terms of how many wings they have. It doesn't mean that some of them have two three or four and that's it. It means that some have to some have three some of for some have more some you know Allah Subhana Allah created them a various different types. He increases in creation, what He wills indeed laws over all things competent. We know that Allah Subhana Allah is the originator thought that is somehow it will have he created it. He's the originator. Everything is created originally by Allah subhanho wa
Taala. So when we say you know something is made in Australia or made in Canada, made here made there, it's actually made on planet earth that was made by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So yes, it was made in Canada, but it was made in a land that was created by Allah subhana wa tada and everything that we see is the creation of Allah. And it's beautiful Savannah lights, absolutely beautiful. You know, the other day, I was actually just today, I was, I was going through some of the messages that I had sent to my friend Mujahid who had passed away just a few days ago. And I remember you know, he was he sent me a picture of a sloth. Do you notice loss is how many of you know what a slot is?
Raise your hand. You notice a lot is those who don't know what a slot is? Raise your hand.
Okay, it's an interesting animal. So Pamela, he sent me this picture of an animal that I have it I have it on my phone.
But I can't show it to you right now. So kinda love it. You can google it a sloth LSL o th, is a really, really interesting animals of handle. And he found this animal in his backyard. Right? And I was like, Man, I've never seen this before. I don't even know what it's called. And I sent the picture to my wife, and she sent it to her friends. And I sent it to a few of my friends. I'm like, check this animal out. And they're like, Where's this? What is that? Is that in Canada? Like, no, it's in Ghana. It's kind of really interesting looking animal. And it's like on the ground, really furry and fuzzy kind of looks like a transition between a bear and maybe, you know, a panda, you
know, has a really strange neck that just comes straight out and then skip these long front arms that have these long claws in the front panel. That's really interesting looking animal. And he was he sent me this picture. And he's like, yeah, this is our new pet. They found it in their backyard. And they called it flash. It's their new pets of Hannah law. This was in April. And, you know, somehow that was really interesting to see that. And I was like, look at the world. There's so many things on earth that Allah subhanho wa Taala created for us. That's absolutely beautiful. We never even see it. Like I'm 35 years old now. And I've never seen a sloth before. I think I remember
hearing that name, or that word, sloth. Maybe in school, we were taught it but I forgot about it. And I've never seen an actual picture of one, at least not that I know of. And Subhanallah that's amazing to learn how Allah created different things in different parts of the world. Here, we don't have, you know, little iguanas. Or we don't have little lizards. in different parts of the world. You have lizards. Here we have lots of mosquitoes. When I travel to other parts of the world, it's nice and warm, and there's no mosquitoes and handed in that. It's very interesting how Allah created this earth. And different things exist in different parts of the world. And we take it for granted
sometimes, not realizing that every single thing we see in front of us, including our own selves, when we look in the mirror is from the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala including our own selves. We are from the creation of Allah. And when Allah subhanaw taala begins by praising himself. Some people say, Oh, that's kind of prideful. Why is Allah praising himself? Have you looked in the mirror? Have you thanked a lot for who you are? Have you understood the creation that you are the person that you are, you are creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and yourself
It's prideful, Alhamdulillah we should be thanking and praising him more for creating us as who we are. And so we need to thank Allah subhana wa tada more often, for you know the the beauties of this world and the bounties that he's given us some kind of law. And this entire sutra he talks about a lot of his creation, Allah Subhana, Allah goes through his creation. In verse number three he mentions, remember, you know, to remember the favours of Allah subhana wa tada all mankind remember the favor of Allah upon you? Is there any any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the heaven and earth? There is no deity, no god except him. So how are you diluted? Seriously, so how
are we diluted and Subhanallah? As believers as people who are in the masjid every single day, sometimes we forget. And we need to be reminded, and this is why we recite the Quran, because it reminds us, it reminds us, right, in nanomedicine, vichara. It's something that reminds us constantly of who we are, and our position on earth. And even though we might be billionaires, we might be billionaires the other day, we were sitting here during a thought and the brothers were saying, how much money would it take for us to, you know, start our own bank, right? And we're saying, you know, minimum of about 500 million, right? At least 500 million. So panela, someone
might be a billionaire, and they have loads and loads of wealth. But they use that wealth in the wrong way. Or they think of themselves as someone who's absolutely great and powerful. But who gave you that wealth? And who does that wealth really belong to? It doesn't even belong to us. When we die. We don't get buried with that, well, that wealth goes into the group doesn't come into the ground with us. It stays behind. And sometimes if we don't even do our paperwork properly, it doesn't even go to our family members, right. So Pamela, so we need to understand that that wealth we have is not even ours. It belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah tells us in the Quran, we
covered the verse in the last shuttle, he bought us, he buys us for what, for what price?
Jenna, that we get gender be anila human gender, that we get gender. So Allah subhana wa Taala owns us and owns everything that we have, and we deal with the things that we have, including our body, we take care of our body because it doesn't belong to us. It belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. So I don't consume things that are going to be harmful to me. I don't, I don't go to places that would harm me. I don't do things that are going to harm me simply because this body is an Amana a trust from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It doesn't belong to me. Ultimately, it's been given to me as an Amana. I am my soul. And this body is a tool to keep my soul and until I transfer from this world
out of this world, that's what we are. And Allah subhana wa tada gave us this body as an Amana a trust.
In verse number 12, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us two types of water.
The freshwater and the saltwater and we'll read through the English and not alike are the two bodies of water. One is fresh and one is sweet. One is fresh and sweet, palatable for drinking, and one is salty and bitter. And from each un, sorry, and from each, you eat tender meat and extract ornaments, which you were and you see the ships plowing through them, that you might seek of his bounty, and perhaps you will be grateful. Look at how Allah subhanaw taala highlights the water. First of all, we have freshwater and then we have saltwater. And if you go to certain parts on the earth, like in you know, just off the shores of Cape Town, South Africa, where I'm going next month in
Charlottetown it you'll see this the freshwater and the saltwater and you could see it from the plane, the freshwater and the saltwater and it comes together. But it doesn't mix.
They don't merge. They come together but they don't merge they don't mix. Yet at the same time Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us from both waters.
from both waters, you get meat, right food, fresh food, and it's tasty some kind of law and it comes out of the water. It's fish you have saltwater fish you have freshwater fish. Both of them are really nice and we enjoy them. And we also get treasures from from the water right pearls from the water some Hello What do we get? pearls? And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us also that in the water, you put a boat and the boat will travel through the freshwater and through the saltwater. Is there a difference? Maybe those that are really technical, you know, they'd be able to tell us there's a difference in the buoyancy it might sit a little deeper, a little bit higher. Allah knows
best. I don't know that for a fact but there might be a difference but still the boat floats in the saltwater and it floats in the freshwater
As it's floating, we seek from the bounties of Allah subhana wa tada we go and we fish and we take things out of the water you know, all the beautiful things that we eat and consume from the water and Allah Subhana Allah gave that to us, but we don't think of how a lot produced it and how he gave it to us and created it for us. We move on into verses number 27 to 28.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in verses number 27 and 28
the perfect power of Allah subhana wa tada in his creation he goes on again to explain the rain the produce the mountains, you know when you think of it produce how many of us love you know, mangoes we get the mangoes Alhamdulillah today I was talking to my friend in London, he was like it's seven pounds for a box of four mangoes. JOHN, sir from Pakistan, right? It's seven pounds in the UK for a box. And he was talking to his aunt in, in Pakistan. And she's like, oh, they're so cheap this year. This year. They're the cheapest ever. And I'm like why are they the most expensive ever here when they're the cheapest ever over there? How is it that you know they're more expensive? And so
Subhanallah we see in the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the produce and we love it, we enjoy it, we eat it, we benefit from it. Then Allah subhana wa tada also mentions, you know, the mountains.
And then he mentions livestock in verse number 28.
And among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock or various colors, similarly, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us, you know, the livestock, the animals that he created, imagine how tasty You know, there's probably vegetarians here and vegetarians that are watching. But hamdulillah we have freedom of speech. Imagine how nice it tastes to have a beautiful steak. You know, we're all fasting. We've been fasting for over 17 hours now. And somehow we're craving something nice like a steak or you might be craving you know, lamb biryani or, I don't know, much the same thing, right? You might be craving something. Maybe it's not getting any because you get a lot of banana this
month. hamdulillah but it might be something else. Something like me, I'm craving a burger. So kind of I was telling my wife the other day I'm craving a burger. I want a nice burger. I just want some amazing burger. That's what I'm craving to eat. And Allah created it for us and we when we eat it, what do we do? We say Bismillah before we start eating, and when we end Alhamdulillah or Alhamdulillah Dr. Mohammed Allah subhana wa Jalla Amina muslimeen, who Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us this food and we're thankful for it tastes so nice. We liked it, we enjoyed it. We didn't overeat and hamdulillah and the flavors are so beautiful as well. Whether we're you know, people that eat
meat and chicken and fish etc, or we just eat vegetables, because some people only like to eat vegetables. And Allah subhana wa tada made the meat hallowen for us so we can eat from it. But if you don't like it, then don't eat from it. That's your choice. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us these things with flavors, so we can enjoy as well. Imagine if we were just made to eat, but we couldn't taste. You have to eat to survive, but you couldn't taste there are people that can't taste. And remember a couple of years ago, my dad because you know he's not from here. And I know a lot of us, you know who have Pakistani blood in us. We suffer from
hay fever and you know sinusitis very regularly, right? We're not used to all this pollen going into our noses during the summer, the spring, the autumn, etc. And so Subhanallah my dad he lost taste for some time because of his sinuses. Right? He lost taste. And I was like, do you want a coffee? No. can't taste it anyways, I don't care. You know, I can't taste it. Do you want this? No, I can't taste it. It came to a point in time where he was just eating because he needed to eat because you feel hungry, but somehow you can't taste it. Right? Imagine if we can't taste how bland food would be. We would just take like an egg and cracker. We just take the egg and just eat the whole shell or
something. We don't care. We can't taste it anyways. Right? So I've had a lot. Then in verse number 32 is the last verse that we will take.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how we inherit the Quran and we inherit it in three different ways. And he mentioned them here in verse number 32. I will go through it very quickly. The first way is some some of us we inherit the Quran.
Sorry, there are some who inherit the Quran and who wronged themselves. So we inherit the Quran and wrong ourselves. Now we might inherit the Quran and you use it only to show off or you use it only to earn money, right? Because you're Oh, you know what I'm going to recite and make all these CDs and DVDs and so on and so forth, and make lots of money off of it. And then you notice that that's the authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in sahadi. About the person, the first person the first category of people that would be dragged into the Hellfire, the people who some handler learn to code and only to be recognized as a gaudy someone who recited the Quran,
someone who would show off in the recitation of the Quran, they didn't recite it because they'd love to recite the Quran they recited it
Because the people loved when they recited the Koran, and so Subhana Allah, they were known as someone who only was showing off and they would be dragged on their faces and thrown into jahannam. So there are some who wronged themselves with the Koran. The second category, some who follow a middle course. They use the Quran, they don't use the Quran, they listen to the Quran, they don't listen to the court and they act upon some of the Quran and some of it they just totally disregard because you know, it is too difficult for them whatever the case is. And the third category of people who inherit the Quran are those who
are foremost in good deeds, those that are constantly doing good deeds, through what they learn from the Quran. They strive hard to constantly do good deeds that they learn from the Quran and they want to teach others the Quran as well. So in various different ways they use the Quran to get more good deeds with Allah subhana wa tada and we learned that here in Sweden, I thought that we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it easy for us to seek forgiveness throughout this month of Ramadan. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive all those who are making dua to him and sacrificing their food and their health etc. During this month of Ramadan. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to help people in
various different countries on earth that are suffering in Iraq, in Philistine in Afghanistan, in Burma. In you know, various various different countries around the world We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant them ease and comfort. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us a means of taking this Deen to those in different parts of the world and in Canada as well who have never heard of or who have a wrong idea or mentality of Islam. mean out of anatomy or soul of cinema Vatican anabaena Mohammed weida Adios, amigos
