Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Alana being in Karim. Allah Allah he was suffering he may have been a my bad I think in every mustard from having microphone issues I'm hearing it
I think that did the trick.
He said I'm already coming to LA you're about to cattle
today and shut a lot of Tyler's friday so we'll try to finish
about 10 minutes early hopefully inshallah give us some time to make dua. It's a Friday, it's Ramadan, we're fasting hamdulillah. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to put Baraka in our time throughout our halaqa today, I mean, we're gonna be going through Sora to Zuma, which is the 39th surah of the Quran.
Yes, 39th surah of the Quran will also be going through sort of a hall theater and sort of facilite Cain surah Zuma sort of affair and a sort of facilitate
swindler in sort of to zoom out.
In the first four verses Allah subhanho wa Taala affirms that the deen or Islam is for him and he's deserving of worship. And we see here how Allah subhanho wa Taala that you know mentions indeed we have sent down to you the book on Mohammed In truth, so worship a lot. And in the in the third verse, Allah says Allah and in Les Deen on Hollis, that Deen which Deen is it? which religion? Is it? Allah subhanho wa Taala says unquestionably, for Allah is the Pure religion which religion? Islam Of course we know it's Islam. Allah Subhana Allah today, I spent some time and I'll speak about it in Shama, but I was speaking to someone who came to the masjid today in Milton, and he was
there from before Juma and I left the masjid at around 515 or five, yeah, around 515 520 just because we were talking about Islam and Christianity, you know, just talking about the deen and tonight so Pamela as I was going through, you know, putting my notes together I I
realized how Allah subhanaw taala shows us and we'll see that in our last last verse that we will take how important it is to learn our Deen in order to speak to others about it. You know, some handle that people will come to us at various different religions and try to prove their points and I told him straight off the bat just like I always say, you know, I don't like debating I don't like to debate between my religion and your religion. You want to learn about Islam Ask me whatever questions you want about Islam but I'm not here to say well Islam this and Christianity that that and go back and forth. And the conversation ended up being that way. So hon Allah for many hours, we
went on and on and on from Juma which I lead at 130 all the way until close to 530. We're just sitting there discussing this Panama. And you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here that he affirms Islam is the deen for him according to him, Allah in Allah lillahi Deano, Hollis
that Islam is a pure religion and it is the truth. And it's come with clarification to the religions of the past. And we'll see that as we go along in sha Allah hotelera vs number seven to eight Allah Subhana Allah to Allah teaches us that he dislikes disbelief and when people only call on Him in times of difficulty, and one of the types of disbelief that Allah subhana wa tada highlights is that we simply turn to him only when we need something. We'll see here we'll read through it. It's fairly lengthy and I don't want to like I said, I want to finish a little bit early today. So I don't want to go in too much detail. But in verse number seven, Allah subhanaw taala shows us if you
disbelieve, Indeed Allah is free from need a view and he does. Sorry he does not approve for his servants disbelief. And if you are grateful, he approves it for you, and no bear of burdens will bear the burden of another. So no one will bear the burden of another person.
And then do your Lord is your return and he will inform you about what you used to do. Indeed he is knowing of that within the chests, right so Allah subhanho wa Taala then goes to tell us and when
adversity touches men. When someone goes through hardship, when a person is facing difficulty in life, he calls upon his Lord turning to Him alone, we turn to Allah and we make dua, ha, you're going through a hardship, you're going through difficulty you turn to a lot. Of course, that's normal. We do that all the time. But we need to remember to call upon Allah. At times when we're not suffering as well not going through difficulties. And this is what Allah Subhana Allah is highlighting here. He then goes on to say, then when He bestows on him a favor from himself, when Allah makes that situation go easy for you or he, he clarifies he rectifies that problem, the
difficulty you're going through in life, Allah says, he forgets him. He forgets him, whom he called upon before we forget a lot. As soon as things go our way, the way that we want it to be, you know, you might have had a car accident, and then you make dua to Allah, Allah, please rectify this issue. And the insurance company says, You know what, it's a total write off, we're gonna give you this amount of money and like, Whoa, I never thought I would get this much money. And then you go to buy a car and you get a better car than the car you used to have. And then at that point in time, you were you were struggling, you were making too high to online like, yeah, love to these make it easy
I need a car, I need to go to work. I don't know if I'm gonna get the money that I need for my car and so on and so forth. Then you get something that was better than what you had. Do we remember a lot that point in time?
A few of us do. Some of us do. We remember a lot. We're thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala we're thankful that we got what we asked for what we need it. But at the same time, we noticed that many people forget. Many people get into that corner like hamdulillah good. And that's it the only sale handler or they'll begin and say Bismillah or they'll start some Hannah, ladies Carolina say the drought when they're getting into a car and driving off and that's it. And I'm thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for what they received. And so Allah Subhana Allah shows us here,
when a person calls upon Him and He grants them that during the time of difficulty, then he forgets a law who he called upon, and he attributes to a lot equals to mislead people from his way. So he attributes to a loss of data how to others you know what, if you have a car accident, don't worry, call up this travel, call up this insurance broker don't go with this insurance company. Last time I had an accident, this was you know, they gave me this amount of money, it was supposed to only be 2000 they gave me 6000 whatever it is, right. So we call upon the other than Allah subhanaw taala we seek assistance from other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. First, there's nothing wrong with seeking
help seeking assistance. But first we turn to a law. And here Allah subhana wa tada is showing us that we don't do that we do the opposite. We only turn to him when we are in that difficult moment.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says at the end of verse number eight, say, enjoy your disbelief for a little indeed you are of the companions of the Fire Subhan Allah. So we need to understand that when we call upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, it should be at times of difficulty as well as at times of ease, even when we don't need him. You're sitting down you say Allahumma salli Allah, Muhammad, Allah, Allah Muhammad, that is sending Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is beloved or Allah subhanho wa Taala loves that we do that. And that's remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't need anything you don't you're not sitting there
making dry Allah I don't need anything right now but I felt like just calling upon you make Vicar do have to do is to ask for forgiveness. All of that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves that it you know, that includes what we're discussing. That also includes remembering a lot and calling upon him at times when you don't need him. You're calling upon a lot asking for forgiveness. You're sitting there are you committing a sin right now? Probably not. You're sitting in the masjid. You're listening. You're not doing anything. You're just sitting breathing and listening. But you ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness. It's not a time of need. It's not a time of hardship. But you're
asking him for something forgiveness. So Allah subhana wa tada wants to see us doing that. regularly, we move on to verses number 36 to 40 of soda to Zuma.
Verse number 36, Allah subhana wa tada shows us
how he is sufficient for the believers. Allah subhanho wa Taala is sufficient for the believers and we know that we know that when you know, like we were just discussing, we're going through a hardship in life. Allah sufficient even if I don't get the money that I'm deserving for my car, for example, in the accident, Allah subhanho wa Taala sufficient some way somehow somewhere down the line alone will make something good happened to me. There will be some height in it. Whether now later in the year after there's something good in it, Allah knows best right? But the most unicorn admit that a lot is their Creator as well. So us as believers, we turn
Allah subhanho wa Taala but in verse number 38, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights for us that the mushy corn, they also admit that allows their Creator Let's read it
men holla cos
Tedder Runa Mooney in Aurora Danny in aurania ma boo boo boo in hell. NACA Shiva to burn Allen aka Shiva to me he Danny B Rama. Helen M. Sica Torah Mati
Cole has been la la etowah. You tell Joaquin.
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us at the beginning of verse number 38. When are inside the home and Hanukkah, somehow it will end if you ask them, who created the heavens in the earth? Who is the one that create who's the Creator, who's the supreme creator laya Unum law, they will say, Allah, they will admit that it's Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this shows us that and this is one of the reasons why we we are allowed to eat from other keytab right, we're allowed to eat from another tab. Why? Because they believe in a Supreme Lord, a supreme god. Now I don't want to get into the details of, of the food that I just mentioned, like we're allowed to eat from a home Kitab etc. Because then
people will open up doors of lots of lots of conversation. But Allah subhanho wa Taala recognizes the Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity, and we see as well that here Allah indicates to us even those who were the mushy Kuhn who were worshipping idols at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even from amongst the idol worshipers, there are some who also believe in a supreme god. Take Hinduism, for example. In Hinduism, they have lots of Gods little gods, they actually have little little statues to write lots of little Gods panela. And they worship these gods, or they ask for forgiveness, they ask for food, they asked for provisions, they asked for
intercession, ask God, the Supreme God, so they believe in a larger God or a bigger God. And this is an example for us some kind of love that sometimes we can easily clarify things. Easily clarify things with those who disbelieve by having them understand that you also believe in a supreme god. And because you believe in a supreme god, you don't need to believe in these smaller gods. You don't need that. Why do you need a smaller God a lesser God than an idol or a statue made out of stone or wood? Why do you need that you don't need that. You believe that this small little thing is going to go or intercede on your behalf to a larger God? Why don't you just call upon that large God
yourself? That supreme god, call upon Allah subhana wa Tada, right. And here Allah subhana wa tada shows us that they recognize a lot as the creator,
as the creator. And so we differentiate. Now, we know in when we talk about tawheed, we break it down into different groups, right? Generally speaking, the more common groups or more common types of tawheed is to heat a room obeah, which is affirming that Allah is our Creator and Lord tauheed
Loulou here, which is understanding that he is deserving of our worship, right. So he did arriba. And so he will see that understanding and believing in the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the machete Koon, as well as those that that don't believe in what we believe in, they believe in a God is their Creator, not talking about the atheist, talking about those who have a little bit of religion in them, right. They believe that God is their Creator, and Allah subhanaw taala shows us that here. They are coonan Allah, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth who created you? Where did this come from? Your heart is beating, how is it beating? Did you
tell it to beat? Did you tell the blood to go through your body? Did you tell your nails to grow so that every Friday you can clip them? Did you do that? No, you didn't. Who's making that happen? Well, God, he's our Creator. And so we see that there are those who disbelieve and when we say disbelieve, they just believe because of what they believe in. They disbelieve because of what they believe in. They disbelieve in Allah subhanho wa Taala as the only soul God to be worshipped and that is the true God Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We move on to verses number 68 and 70. And we see here that Allah Subhana Allah throw the sword, he talks a lot about belief goes into
Do a lot of verses to do with belief, belief, belief, belief, belief. And in verse number 68, to 70, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights the blowing of the trumpet.
Let me just get it, one of your office or Allah Subhana, Allah says, and the horn will be blown and whoever is in the heavens, and whoever is on the earth will fall dead, except whom Allah wills, every single one of the creation will be terminated or will end except those or that which Allah subhanho wa Taala permits to remain. Why do we say that? First of all, gender is part of the creation of Allah jahannam is part of the creation of Allah, is it going to end? No, it's not those that Allah Subhana Allah has appointed as doing certain tasks from amongst the angels, for example, those will carry out their tasks, all the rest done, they will end they will cease to exist, for
that point in time. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us again,
then it will be blown once again, and at once they will be standing looking on, so we will die and we will be resurrected. And we mentioned this yesterday or the day before when were placed in the earth and it's the soil, it's dead. It's nothing right? Nothing comes from it except what Allah Subhana Allah wills to grow out of the ground, and we will be, we will be placed into the ground and then we will come from the ground as well. And so when the Trumpet is blown, everything will end. And when the Trumpet is blown, everything will come back. And this is the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In verse number 69, he shows us and the earth will shine with the light of its Lord, and the
record of deeds will be placed and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought, and it will be judged between them in truth, and they will not be wrong. The loss of hanaway to Allah will use justice on that day, in verse number 70. And every soul will be fully compensated for what it did. And he is most knowing of what they do. And this is important for us to understand every soul will give account for what we did our actions, our deeds, etc. And this is one of the things that I was discussing with that.
With that man today when I was speaking to him about Islam and Christianity, and he was like, Well, wait a second, you guys need to do things in order to get to paradise. In order to get to heaven, you have to do things. You believe in a law. Yes, you believe in the Prophet, the messengers, etc. You believe in the books. You believe in the Day of Judgment, you believe in the things that we have to believe in, in our Deen. But he says you need to do things in order to get to heaven. We don't like that's so he was saying us as Muslims, we do. And they as Christians don't they automatically get heaven. And because they're given Heaven, they live good lives. I was like, we have to do
something. He's like, No, we don't have to do anything. Like what do you mean, you don't have to do anything. And that was something that we spoke about for hours, literally for hours. Do you have to do something in order to get paradise? And he was saying no, as Christians? They don't. And I was saying yes, as Muslims, we do. And so do you as as Christians, you need to do that as well. And he's like, no, it doesn't make sense, because we're already given paradise. So technically, I don't need to do anything. I was like, okay, so if you murder someone now, is that considered a sin? In Christianity? Yes. And he said, Yes, it's considered a sin. So now that you murdered someone, does
that mean that you will no longer go to Paradise? Well, you rejected God. So no, you're not going to go to Paradise? Or maybe you repent from it, okay. So because of your action, you're refused or you're forbidden from going into paradise? No, it's not because of the actions you don't understand it. Like
I understand it, one of us doesn't understand it. I understand it clearly. Subhan Allah. And this is where you know, sometimes Allah has to, we need to make dua to Allah. We need to make dua to Allah to give us wisdom in our speech. Sometimes things are really easy for us to understand, and others will not understand it. And sometimes he gives us wisdom to speak and we say things so clearly easy to understand. But Allah subhana wa Taala tells us in the Quran, he closes their hearts, he seals their hearts from understanding because they don't want to understand.
And I truly believe in that sort of analog when I speak to people, sometimes you can see you can send to can feel, they don't want to understand they don't want to they do not want to accept the truth. And because they don't want to their hearts are sealed. And you wonder like you're an intelligent individual. Why are you not understanding this makes total sense. It makes complete sense. You could tell it to a child they're going to understand Nope, they will not accept it because they don't want to and because they don't want to allow seals their hearts, they no longer can. And so some handler We ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us wisdom in our speech and our actions,
so we can convey the message of the deen to those who live around us. I mean,
we move on to verse number 71 in verse number 71
Sora to Zuma. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the disbeliever led to hell sorry the disbeliever will be led to hell and the believers will be led to paradise and those that enter Paradise, they will be given glad tidings, they will be greeted with Salah peace right Allah subhanho wa Taala says
walk marlana kasana to Santa
Cruz play boom federal Hello ha ha needy in the keepers of Paradise will say to those who are entering paradise there will be a group led to john num and a group lead to paradise agenda to have to have in Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that the gatekeepers those that watch the gates, they will greet the people of Paradise cinema on a calm, they will greet them with peace.
You have become pure, so enter it to abide eternally they're in to live they're in forever. And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that throughout our actions in our deeds, we do get them weighed and we do go through a judgment and we will be questioned and then we will either be led towards Gen jahannam as we discussed yesterday, or Jen as we're discussing today, we move on to the next soda
soda number 40
which is soda. Aha fear. What is coffee, please forgive me today I'm really really you know, thirsty. I don't know I'm not really thirsty but my mouth is very dry. So it's a little bit difficult
to have it as well as
surah Menon right meaning so as well Allah subhanho wa Taala titles. This surah has been titled A half a what is a hearted
man who? Allah right? That's exactly it. Mashallah, everyday he's got the answer. And the the definition to the answer. The one who forgives the forgiver who is the forgiver Allah right. So that's what he said in Arabic, like who is the author who's the forgiver is the one who forgive who forgives the sins who is that a lot, right? Allah is the one who forgives the sins. Now this sooner Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us here in the first three verses. hammy
Zhi noodle kita de mina mahila, zz, Lani.
b. kabini, toby Shadi de Neri, Bobby the PO
uh, you know, in
LA, mostly, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us I mean, again, hurdles, look at the heart, disjointed letters the meaning we leave with Allah subhanho wa Taala a halt off at them what call Billy tobe
I skipped a verse number three but that's fine Allah subhana wa tada shows us in verse number three, the hall fitted them to what COVID had told the forgiveness of sin acceptor of repentance. Who is that? Allah right? He forgives our sins. And this is the month of Ramadan. This is the month especially now we're entering into the last 10 nights. When did when does it begin? tomorrow? Tomorrow is which night 21st night tonight is the 20th night. A lot of people get confused. I actually got a message from Vancouver asking me can you ask the machine if asked to shoot? When does the last 10 nights begin? And I said it's very simple. It's not you know rocket science, you count
1234 all the way to 10 Okay, 10 days, the night began and then the 10th the 10th day and then on the 10th day what happens at night? That's the 11th night so you begin to 1112 1314 you count another 10 on the 20th night that is your end of the 10th the second 10th on the 21st night which is tomorrow. That's the beginning 2120 220-324-2520 620-728-2930 Okay, not rocket science. Very easy, some common law. Okay, so the 21st night begins tomorrow. That's the beginning of the last 10 days and last 10 nights because we begin with the night first, last 10 nights and last 10 days of the month of Ramadan. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to say what type of of
forgiveness did he did he say frequently during the last 10 nights
a lahoma in NACA What did you say?
surah Hoffer? Mashallah interesting. Very good, very good. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how silly them are called the lotto. But yes, he is the one who forgives the sins and the one who accepts our repentance, but Allah Subhana Allah shows us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I
Chateau de Allahu Allah teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to constantly say Allahumma inaka are full one to have Bula for fire for honey or for Hannah, all of us, right? So it's a it's something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say regularly, he used to seek forgiveness a lot more during the last 10 nights than the previous 10 and the previous 10 before that, and so it's an important time for us to now constantly seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is the source of forgiveness. This is where Allah subhanho wa Taala discusses it, and it's the time of the year it's the month of Ramadan when Allah subhanho wa Taala
closes the doors, the gates to jahannam and opens the doors to paradise and chains down shape on and this is the time when because we're fasting we create a barrier a shield protecting us gender, it's a shield, it's something that protects us from all evils, including that of john num as the as the scholars, you know, explain
the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's a shield from Jana. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in the first three verses, that a lot is the one who accepts our repentance and forgives our sins. Shadi douleur, he called it Bo de la ilaha illa, who Severe in punishment owner of abundance, there is no deity no true God deserving of worship except him. To Him is the the destination the final destination so we will return to Allah subhanho wa Taala in verse number 14 command to worship ally even if it's hard for us even if the circumstances that we are in are difficult. And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here
further on lamacchia slean Anna Dino Hello Kenny had caffeine
on so invoke en la la mostly seen Allahu Deen being sincere to him in religion. Now do i is a various different types here. Allah says invoke Allah subhanho wa Taala but he's showing us although the disbelievers dislike it, they don't like it you do it continue to do it. And you might be praying your son out in public and we've discussed this earlier and you feel shy to do it. You feel shy to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala and Sala is doing
when we translate it or when we define it I should say what is Sala sada is da you are asking Allah Subhana Allah to Hana in your prayer, right from the beginning until the end did you begin do
sudo Fatiha it is a dua in itself right then you recite of the Quran, you go into the court you're praising a lot you're going to salute you're praising the Lord but it's also a time when you can ask for it make dua to Allah subhana wa tada Deakin, sorry, between your two such that it's a time to ask for forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask for forgiveness between the two sides does a lot of us come up and go right back down. It's a time to pause to relax and to ask for forgiveness. Right? That's important for us to learn because many of us don't we don't do that. Right? We haven't been taught to do that.
In such a way but I'm talking about when you come up from from such that in the junk set when you're sitting between two such that veinous sets the Tang Eonni it's a time of asking for forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Yeah, yeah, so Doha is a data we know that in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu I need to send him a dua. Will anybody right? And so it's important for us to constantly ask Allah subhana wa Tada. But at times when we need to fulfill the actions you need to pray, you're fasting people say why do you fast they criticize why you fast? It's such a long daisley it's really hot and Subhanallah tomorrow is gonna be hotter and you know, the day after is gonna probably even hotter than today. How are you going to fast as difficult? Why do you do that? Don't punish yourself. Don't make it difficult for yourself. Why are you making it hard for you for your teenage children? Don't worry.
Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us long days and those that don't fast, they know that it's difficult, but those that do fast know that a lot puts Baraka in our time. He puts Baraka in our food. Outside of Ramadan, we chug day and night. But Subhana Allah during Ramadan, you might eat one meal and it's sufficient for you for the whole day for 18 hours or for 24 hours until the next meal that you eat. That's enough. All you need is a little bit of water at night until and when service time is done the philosopher Okay, you're fine for the whole day. And those that don't believe they criticize it. Don't worry Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here, call upon Allah do your ibadah worship him even
The non believers dislike what you're doing Don't worry about it. Don't worry. Do it on local put vodka in your life in those actions and what you're doing and every other aspect of your life. We move on to verse number 18.
And here Allah subhana wa tada indicates to us a description of fear, which is really interesting because, you know, it's something that that happens to us how many okay youth? Let me ask you a question. When you go on a roller coaster. Have you ever been on a roller coaster? Yeah.
Mashallah, when you go on the roller coaster, do you ever get scared?
What do you feel when you get scared? How do you feel inside of your chest?
You feel like you're gonna fall? You go up? And then what happens when you go up? And then what happens when you come down?
Good. What do you feel? Do you feel anything in your chest and your throat? Any of the youth want to say anything? How do you feel when you enter a rollercoaster? You're going up or you're in your car and you're not paying attention? You know, Dad goes up a hill and then comes down the hill. You feel like something's in your throat? Ever feel that? Yeah, of course, Allah Subhana. Allah describes that for us here in verse number 18. And warn them when we're how much of the approaching date. warn the people that there will be a time where we will be resurrected and stand before Allah subhana wa Tada.
When hearts are at the throats, look at that Allah Subhana Allah explains the fear. That's the amount of fear that people will have, right or that's a type of fear. One of the types of fear because people will be you know, fearing their, their questioning and and doing crazy things. But here, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us when hearts are at the throats filled with distress. And that's what we feel when we get scared out. It feels like our heart comes right up to our throat, right? It's like, Whoa, what just happened there, you're going over that roller coaster coming down somehow to LA. And that's you know, Allah subhanaw taala is describing that on that day, we will be
so scared. It's not just that split second where you're going up and then coming down the roller coaster split second that feeling in your throat and it's gone? No, no, it's going to last for a long, long time. You're going to be scared. And so lots of handwheels Allah tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warn the disbelievers warn them that this day will come where they will be questioned. And they will have that fear within them. And if they understood the fear now in this life, then they understand Wait a second, that's only something I feel when I'm extremely scared of something. It's like the pinnacle of my fear in this life. And if that's how it's going to be, then
maybe I need to look deeper into it. Maybe I need to understand why I'm going to feel that fear. And I don't want to feel it. So I need to change my life in order to live away where I will not be in that fear. where I'll be comfortable on that day, I'll be under shade on that day. I will be someone that is protected on that day. And we ask Allah subhana wa attallah to protect us from feeling that feeling and from fearing Allah subhanaw taala as punishment on that day. I mean,
in verse number 19, he knows what deceives the eyes as Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us. He knows that which deceives the eyes and what is within us concealed now Subhana Allah This is really interesting because sometimes things catch our eye, and we see something or we hear something, and we want to do it, or we work towards it secretly without anyone knowing what's inside of us. They don't know our intentions, they don't know what we're doing. And sometimes you'll notice that something catches your attention, you see something and you go towards it, you follow it, you seek it, you want it. And Allah subhanaw taala indicates to us he knows what catches our eye and he knows
what we conceal within us. Nothing is secret from Allah subhanho wa Taala it might be secret to other human beings. And that's something that Allah gave us that we can conceal our thoughts and emotions within us. But it's not secret to a lot. So purify that which we feel inside of us so that we can turn to a loss of Hannah who went to Hana in purity.
Verse number 60, let's skip across inshallah. And for the sisters if you could open the lights back there, sits in north and not in in darkness.
Verse number 60, of sort of often Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us a powerful powerful statement on oh boy como de Rooney, StG Bula calm we highlight this usually in June Maha call upon me I will respond to you, right? Allah subhana wa tada shows us very clearly what color of bukom and he tells us your Lord. Your Lord is saying who the Rooney a statue black on color.
Fanmi, I will answer you. Imagine how Allah subhanho wa Taala is literally like, you know, humbling himself. I won't say he's begging us because he's not begging us a lot doesn't need us to do this. He's humbling himself in front of us, telling us, you need something asked me. You're not begging. It's not there's a difference between begging someone says, What do you need? What do you need? Just ask me, Dory. Come on, do what do you need? Just tell me tell me what you need. Well, that's not begging from you to call upon him. Allah subhanaw taala is humbling himself. Someone comes to your house, and they you know, tell you about maybe something they went through a very sad story. And you
tell them humbly you're humbling yourself. You're saying you know, so Pamela, if you need anything you know, as they're leaving your house, you tell them if you need anything, let me know. Let me know if you need anything and I'll do my best. And most of the time is humbling himself and showing us if you need something called upon me, whatever it is that you need, just ask. Just asking how many times we actually ask a lot. And how many times do we ask a lot of times when we don't need like yeah, a lot. I don't need a house. I don't need a car. I don't need anything handler I have that you gave that to me. A lot. guide me towards what is best. Right call upon him. Ask him for
things that you know that are just general ask him for goodness for yourselves. Goodness for our children. Good news for our community. Good news for the rest of the oh my goodness for people that are suffering and struggling in different parts of the world. We asked them We ask Allah subhana wa Tada. I don't need anything right now. But there's people that need Let me ask Allah for them. There's people that need water. There's people that need food. There's people that need homes, there's people that need clothing. There's people that that need heat. There's people that need a date to break their fast ask a lot to make it easy for those people as well. Not just ourselves with
the Rooney esta gibler. Can
we move on? For those that are just joining us? I said I want to not go into too much detail today so that we can finish a little bit early and have some time for Doha because it's Friday. So for those that are here and wondering why we're not going into so much detail, there's a reason in verse number 61 to 65 Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights His signs, signs of his creation, things that he created indicating to us His greatness in verse number 62 I want to recite 62 inshallah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says that is Allah your Lord, then ecoman long wanna buco Connie ko Konishi la ina
to focus on Allah subhanho wa Taala says that is that is Allah, your Lord, creator of all things, what what are we talking about who we talking about in verse number 61. It is a law who made for you the night that you may rest there in and the day giving sight you can actually see during the day, Indeed, Allah is full of bounty to the people. But most of the people are not grateful. Most of the people are not grateful to Panama.
We were just talking about Doha and asking a loss counterweight and at times when we don't need and he indicates he knows most of us are not grateful. And so we need to be people that are grateful and thankful how many times we sit down, we're waiting for a thought. And we see the food in front of us. And instead of instead of making to our our not even making dry, we're just sitting there chilling, talking. And it happens to all of us, every single one of us, and we see the food in front of us. And we're not even grateful for that. How many of us actually thanked a lot before we put that food in our mouth. A simple thing. What's out there right now I'm seeing I'm seeing I think I'm
seeing some osos I'm seeing water and I'm seeing dates, right.
Simple things. Are we thankful to Allah have we thanked ally Allah? You know, thanks for this date that you gave me. Thanks for the symbol set every single day. When even though we're told you know, it's almost like the greatest things to eat every single day. They're fried. They're not good for your health. Thanks for giving this to me. Sugar, be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala at least have something to eat. Right? So be thankful to Allah Who is he the Li como la hora, bukom. Holly kukuli Shay. Indeed that is your Lord Allah, the creator of all things. There is no deity no god except him. So how are you diluted? How How is it that we just don't understand? How is it that
those that don't believe don't understand they see everything in front of them all the time. Subhana Allah, we just don't understand. In verse number 65 Allah subhanho wa Taala says one hi EULA.
the room a nice clean and a hoodie in Alhamdulillah Europe
have me in. He is the ever living. There is no deity except Him. So call upon him being sincere to him in religion in your deen meclizine Allahu Deen. All praise is due to Allah Lord of the worlds Subhana Allah praise Allah subhanho wa Taala thank him for what we have, you know in these verses Allah subhana wa tada mentions shapes that look good. Imagine how good things look in front of us shapes of things. And we look at this and it looks nice hamdulillah right. Some people like it, some people don't. Some people like to have a hiuen die. Some people like to have a Honda Some people like to have a Mercedes some people like this shapes and the look of a BMW. Some people like you
know bricks on their home to be pink. Other people like it to be beige. Some people like brown some people like red some people like you know white other people like gray Everyone has their own taste. Allah created various different shapes and colors and different sizes of things. For us to enjoy. You don't like this, you like that you don't like that you like this. There's various different things to choose from. And so we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he's given us. He mentioned the sky, the sky as a canopy that protects the earth. What protects us the ozone layer, so Panama, imagine we don't even think of it back in the 80s. I remember this was when they
first started to mention a lot, at least for me because I was a child at the time. Right. We started to hear a lot about the ozone layer and how it was being destroyed and how holes are forming in the ozone layer and then they started to teach it to us in school. Right they started to teach us about the ozone layer and stuff. Allah subhana wa tada talks about the sky and how he put it there protecting us, protecting us from what what is there something that's falling on us right now? protecting us from the harmful Miss of the rays of the sun, the harm of the rays of the sun. It's protecting us we put on our sunglasses uv 100% protection, right? We put on lip balm sometimes right
you What is it up Uhp or something like that right? What's the I forgot what it's called now so kind of
what's it called? SPS. I don't see it here as SPF I think right 45 whatever you know all these different things sunblock and so on protecting us why because we're now destroying what Allah put there for us as protection, the ozone layer so Pamela and many other things this guy protects us we have from the sky protection as in rain comes down when it's too hot equals us. When I was living in in Malaysia, the smog or the haze as we call it is so thick, so you know bad Subhanallah for your health. I remember one point in time it reached toxic levels, it reached a classification or a grading level that they would use reached close to 400 it was like 380 or 390 very dangerous for
your health toxic if you breathe it, you're breathing toxic air air, how does air become toxic some kind of law because of the pollution in the air and the smoke from you know burning crops etc. And I think I mentioned this here before in Singapore they were thinking of
seeding the clouds
seeding the clouds putting something in the clouds that makes it form rain and the rain falls to the ground Subhanallah and what would that do? That would purify the air it would clean out as the droplets fall it collects all the garbage in the air, all the pollutants in the air and it falls to the ground and then somehow they didn't end up doing it because not too long afterwards. It did it did rain Alhamdulillah but the rain they said do not let the rain fall on you use an umbrella stay indoors don't come outside. Because the pollutants were so strong if it falls on your skin, it's dangerous for you and people are actually getting like very minor burns on their skin because of the
pollutants in the air with Hannah law. The ozone layer is a protection for us, the sky how Allah subhana wa tada built it in his infinite wisdom. Don't we think of this, though those who don't believe think of this? Aren't they convinced of their Creator when they think of it? How can there not be a creator and then people say Mother Nature May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide those who say Mother Nature, it is not Mother Nature. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala the Creator of the heavens and the earth and the creator of themselves as well. We move on to the 41st suit of the Quran.
In verse number 123 Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how the Quran is explained in detail. hammy
ye kita falsely Selena to earn and de la comi
Allah subhana wa
Hannah shows us that this Quran is a revelation from the entire the Merciful, the Especially Merciful Anwar man on Rahim Kitab when facilite ayah to a book whose verses have been detailed, the Quran is detailed for us in Arabic God and for people who know. Now a lot of people say how is the Quran detailed? I don't know how to pray Salah using the Quran says Aloo licorice. Tom laterna Moon, Allah subhana wa Taala shows us if you don't know ask the people of knowledge where the people can have knowledge going to get it from in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us well De La Hoya de la Sol, follow Allah and follow His Messenger the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us
how to pray Our Salah. So the Quran is detailed, it's so detailed, you just sometimes need to put this puzzle piece with that puzzle piece and take this one and put it with that one. And then it makes sense. And this is why we have the people of knowledge who we go to and we ask them, I don't understand this, can you explain it, I don't understand it. Make sense out of this for me, Allah subhanaw taala revealed it for us to understand not so that we can become confused. Remember, we took that verse before, a lot did not reveal the verse so that he can create chaos. He revealed the Quran so that we can understand and be reminded of him. And then we move on to verses number four
which highlight to us inviting those who disbelieve, but they don't want to try to understand. And I mentioned this just 20 minutes ago, how those who we invite to believe in Allah subhana wa, Tada. They don't want to understand, they don't even want to try to understand. Like today I was talking to this person who had a look very interesting, really, really interesting conversation. And I don't know, he might be watching right now. I don't know, because I gave him my card. And you might be watching right now. But some kind of love was really interesting is you try to make them understand. But it's as though they don't want to understand Oh, you know, the the Koran is not a book of God.
What do you mean, the Quran is not a book of God, you want me to believe that the Bible is a book of God. But you don't want to help me to understand the Quran by understanding that the Quran is a book of God. And it actually came to that point in time in our conversation where I stopped him and I said, Listen, we are going to go nowhere in this conversation if we keep going back and forth, by because me as a believer, as someone who believes in Allah subhana wa Tada. We also have to believe in the books, and I believe in the Bible.
As believers, we believe in the Bible, we don't follow it. But we believe in the Bible. And I believe when you quote things from the Bible, that some of it is probably possibly true, some of it is changed. We know that. And Allah Subhana, Allah teaches us that in the Quran, he sent me a video just before I left home, and I watched only one minute of it. And it's some professor or you know, someone who's learned in Christianity, trying to prove and his his proof is,
when you're debating with Muslims, you have a very simple way of ending that conversation in a minute. I was like, Okay, this is interesting. He says, they believe part of their belief is to believe in all the past books, which means they have to believe in your book. So tell them don't believe in the squat and don't be a Muslim. You don't need to believe in this. Believe in the Bible. Done. Your conversation is over. You force the Muslim to believe in your book and that's it, huh? Where did you get that though? Where does it tell us to believe in the past books, where the Quran so you're telling me, I have to believe in the court and for you to prove your point. But I should
disregard the rest of the Quran so that I can only be fooled by your point. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, you have the phone and Kelly, Mara and Noel they, they change the quarter. You're telling me to believe in the Koran to prove your point. But you can't believe in the Quran for me to prove my point. I'm sorry. It's not gonna work that way. And this is why when I go back to those verses all the time and say don't debate, don't debate unless you know how to debate and you know those verses and you know how to gently calmly nicely debate don't debate because you will just go back and forth and nothing will be solved. There will be nothing, there will be no outcome in
that unless you know what you're doing. So Allah subhana wa tada shows us that here in these verses, inviting those who disbelieve but some of them they will not believe because they don't even want to try to understand versus number six to eight, a call to toe he'd
myth lucam you
know, yeah, and
number NEMA ina who come in a
he was stoned.
Well I you know, a little more sneaky in alladhina, tunas zakka
in Edina where I'm you know, saw the heart You know geranyl ya know, no one, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in verses number six to eight, a call to toe he say oh Mohammed, I am only a men like you to whom it has been revealed that your God is but one God. And even Jesus said this, right? worship him, don't worship Me worship him worship Allah don't worship me. And so Subhana Allah, it's very clear in our book and in their book, may Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us towards the truth. I mean, in verse number 25 to 29 disbelieving friends make sins seem attractive, those amongst us who have friends that disbelieve
or people around us acquaintances that disbelieve, they make sins seem beautiful, they make it seem as though it's attractive. Now you're fasting someone at work, you're sitting down having a meeting a business meeting their order, this nice steak, come on, you're gonna give up this steak. Like it is beautiful, it's calling your name. It's even even the smell of it. It's like spelling your name. Look at the smoke going up. And it's sizzling chicken. Mashallah. Going up. It's spelling your name? Muhammad, Abdullah, right? It's funny name they're trying to get you, you know, attracted to this. No, don't eat it. don't consume it, don't touch it. They're telling you take this, look at this, you
know, this is gonna make you feel good. smoke it, drink it, you're gonna lose all your worries, don't smoke it, don't drink it. Why? Because those worries there. They remind you of who you are. They remind you of what you need. You need Allah subhanho wa Taala. You might smoke that you might drink that and an hour or two later, you feel worse than you did before you touched it. And then what happens when you recover from how bad you feel? Your problems and worries are still there. In fact, they probably came back even worse, because we know that those that consume alcohol and do things, sinful things and handle that it only complicates and makes their life more problematic.
Then we move on in sha Allah hoteller just to add a point there, disbelieving friends, make the sins but one of the sins as well could be the sin of disbelief. So they make disbelief look good. You know what, just come Come and follow us the Kingdom Come right, follow us and everything will be fine. Paradise is already yours. You don't need to work for it. You don't need to do anything for it. You will get paradise live your life freely as you want and you will be given paradise. No. Don't let others deceive you from what Allah subhanho wa Taala that reveals to us in the last three verses that we will take in sha Allah to Allah which is verses number 3031 32 and 33 last four
and lots of subhana wa tada shows us
in Medina con una buena LA, Mr. camu those indeed those who have said Our Lord is Allah and then they remained on a right course is stuck on they read, they remained upon that path that goes and leads to gender. And remember, this is one of the things that the Prophet sent along I need to send them says made his hair turn great. Right some of his hair turned gray when he's when the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu saw him with a few gray hairs. What is it? And he said Who?
What was it in sort of what is the karma is the karma set off the Latina and in a Serato Mr. Team. It's it's that steadfastness remaining upon the truth that made the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turn Great. So we see here Allah says, indeed those who have said Our Lord is a law and then remained on the right course. What happens to them that Dennis, where I lay him when
he can the angels come down and descend upon them, and they say, and talk off.
to talk to.
The angels say to them, Do not fear and do not grieve, but receive good tidings of Paradise glad tidings, you're going to paradise, which you were promised, you are already promised it. We are all promised it. And I said this earlier today to that person as well. Every single one of us is born upon the fifth or we are all born going to paradise, but we change our own selves because we get to choose you decide your own fate you get to make the decisions in your life and you either choose to remain obedient to Allah or to sidetrack
And leave from that national only.
Welcome Phil hi dounia was in Sierra, one comfy Hama, Tasha he flew comala comfy
on we were your allies in the world the lights and in the hereafter Allah subhana wa tada goes on to explain this to us
and you will have there in whatever your souls desire engender in paradise you'll have whatever you want. And Subhanallah we see people sitting in front of their food, those that are sitting in front of the food, please sit closely so you make space for us as well make some space for us Mashallah we need to come and sit with you too. You will have whatever you desire, you'll have everything that you want in genda everything in Paradise, whatever you wish for, and the things that you wish for in this life, like you might want a beautiful Lamborghini you're not even going to wish for that Lamborghini there you're going to see things that your eyes can't you know, you can't even imagine
and you're probably not even going to think of this dunya you'd be like that world forget that world liquidity where we live now. So Pamela, and so Allah subhana wa tada will give us whatever we wish, whatever we desire.
And then he goes on news, Unum in Nova food. He has accommodation from a lord who is Forgiving and Merciful. Newsela This is something that you get from who, from your Lord, who gave to you because you worked for it, you earned it. And in the last verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the best type of speech, what is the best type of speech? Woman sn O and M.
Uh, you know,
wow, I mean, I saw you
walk on in any minute and most nimi in analyst shows us and who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah.
That's the best type of speech and so it's not easy. It's difficult. I know, I just spent the past four, some odd hours talking to someone about Allah subhana wa Tada. It's not easy. You need to be someone that thinks regularly, constantly, you're on your toes you're thinking, but Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us those that invite to a lot. You might not be debating, you might not be having an in depth conversation. But you simply explain why is it that you consider that you continue? For example, someone might ask a simple question, because it came up the other day. Why is it that you continue to name your child Abdullah? as Muslims? Why do we continue to give our children the name
Abdullah, if we know that anyone who has the name Abdullah in the airport right away, they get pulled over? Why do you continue to give that name to your children? People ask these questions? You tell them I'm delighted. Do you know what it means?
He's a servant of Allah.
Who cares? If you get pulled over? You get pulled over? They ask you what's your name? My name is the servant of Allah. It's a means of Dawa. You're now giving Dawa to the security agents in the airport. You're telling them something about Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you something, the ability to speech and to convey that message, cherish it, enjoy it and call people to Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the best thing that we can do or the best type of speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us and who is better in speech than the one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and and says, indeed, I am of the Muslims. In any minute I'm listening and I'm from the Muslims. So
Subhana Allah We ask Allah Subhana Allah to continue to keep us upon this Deen and to continue to have us as Muslims who worship Him and who submit to Him as though agenda. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us forgiveness throughout the month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for all those that are suffering and struggling in different parts of the world. To have ease and comfort We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to guide all those who are misguided. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to put Baraka and blessings in our speech so that we convey the message to others, they receive it, they understand it and they accept it if it's the truth, and
we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect our families from those that are trying to distract them and turn them away from Islam and from Allah subhanho wa Taala miniato Bella Hannah Meanwhile, solo Sonam American Anna Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, our brothers and sisters. You can go over there and sit in front of the food. But remember, make dua to Allah subhana wa Tada, this is Friday, it's the last moments on Friday, and you're fasting and it's a time where you're you know, you have multiple guarantees that your daughter has accepted during this time. So seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And remember your brothers and sisters in your do I mean,
does that come along, hold tight on
