Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa salatu wa salam O Allah Nabeel Karim Allah He of Mato Salatu automata. Slim, another
Santa Monica Morocco to Lahore barakato.
So because tonight is the first night that your T calf will begin,
I know that there are some sisters that normally come out and there is a setup for the marintec even those that are performing ft calf
that is somewhat blocking the door. And I think someone is staying in that cubicle if we could call it so I don't think that coming out for the next few nights will be possible
and shut a lot of talent however, I guess the you know, the window is there if you need to see through I know it's not really as convenient. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us all patience throughout this month of Ramadan. And to make it easy for all of us to
to communicate together. Sorry, cooperates together and work together towards what is better for the greater good of The Omen sha Allah.
This is obviously an exceptional time, a time when air takeoff takes place.
It's a time when
you know people sacrificed their days away from work days away from family time away from their children, their spouse, etc.
So it's a time where you know, there's also difficulties involved in erotica don't think it's just sitting and chilling in the masjid.
When some of us go home to sleep in our beds, you know, they're here listening to the noise of the cleanup and the vacuuming and, you know, the rearrangement of things and then the children and, you know, the amillennial takes place during the last 10 nights as well. And sleep is something that sort of shifts to different times.
And then you also have the more techie team that will take part as well in you know, helping out in the cleanliness of the masjid, etc. They don't have the comfort of their own bathrooms at home, they don't have the comfort of their own, you know, privacy, they don't have the comfort of their own shower, they don't have the comfort of their clean clothes and iron, etc. So it's a time where we need to step up our game, and we need to help those that are performing RT cough as well. And it's a time when we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our efforts and their efforts. And we asked them to remember us and they're doing as well while they're performing charity calf and I keep hearing
that door on the sister side if no one is there, you can you know, you can open it up a little bit, a lot more Adam, if that's something that will last for now, but someone is going to come and take that cubicle by a month at a time so don't get too cozy in there.
And so we ask Allah subhana wa attallah to accept the article for those that are sacrificing their time and comfort and energy for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and busying themselves in the remembrance of Allah in Nevada.
I didn't really plan it and I completely slipped my mind I was thinking Layla Catherine, you know, all of the thoughts of later color came into my head but I didn't think of the mark that caffeine and those that are going to be performing arts decaf, and maybe we could do a little bit of have anyone sat with you? Who's performing f decaf. That's here. Okay, I'm della. Mashallah, you're going to be here the whole month. So we're not going to see you in Milton. In 1999 A Roger Sharma.
Has anyone done you know, go and gone over in, you know, basic etiquettes with you or decaf, what you can do what you can't do what you should be doing? Yeah.
So we'll try and try and get through that in the end. The reason why I say at the end is I don't think everyone who's performing mt katha is here already. So we'll try and do that by the end inshallah, we'll quickly run through this.
Today we're going to be covering the Surah assura which is the 42nd surah of the Quran. Also surah zakharov surah Doohan and Surah jatiya which is the 45th surah of the Quran. Okay, so for the sisters, Mashallah brother magic is very dedicated. He made the space for you. The partition is up so you can if you want, you can come through the door and come through that cubicle and you'll see that there's a partition up there for you. And hamdulillah
so we begin with the 42nd sort of the Quran, which is sort of a short
and shorter, shorter in verse number seven Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to Makkah as a mole, or Amal Cora. Okay, then
woman? How old
are you Betsy? Sorry,
three new Gen 130 cerri Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here that he refers to MK as mulgara What does that mean? What is omokoroa? I give you the answer that is referring to mcca but What does omokoroa mean? Yes.
The mother of all cities Okay, good. Are there any other names that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to the city of Mecca?
Baca Okay, maca buck. In fact, there's in the books of handle I forgot to write the title down over 50 different names attributed to mucker but from the names of Makkah Allah subhanho wa Taala has maca with a meme Baca with a bat. El Balad right the the city or the you know, the town of Korea, which is more like the village or the district you could say, and omokoroa the mother of cities and we see that it It truly is the mother of all cities, so panela even though the city of Medina and manohara is the city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the city where he's buried in the city where you know, the mass majority are good number of this habit of the long run whom are buried
there. We do see that muck is the place to be. It's the place where our Salah is multiplied and intensified, or I should say, amplified by a certain amount of times. How many times is our Salah multiplied when we're praying at the carrabba?
no, not 1000 100,000 times. That's right. And when we pray in must do the Nebu. How many times is it multiplied by?
I asked this question last year, I remember asking this question last year. So this is homework, it's very easy to find this. So do it inshallah spend some time learning it or researching it. And again, I reiterate, the reason why I give homework sometimes, is because when we look for the answer to something, we usually will not forget it after we found it. But if we're simply told the answer, it goes in one ear, it comes out the other ear just like everything that's going to happen in the next 40 minutes. And somehow we won't retain as much of it when we research it when we look for it. You know, like I have my notes in front of me there here I can always refer back to it. And I know
where I got it from if I spent some time looking for something in a book in a certain place in a you know, maybe using some sort of online resources database, I will know which one to go back to. So that's our homework for tomorrow and you need to find MCO we said is 100,000 times your Salas multiplied by you need to look for the answer of Medina and muster the locks are three different masajid in mentioned in one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that the Quran was sent to the people of Makkah, why was it sent to the people of Mecca? I remember one of my dad's cousins used to joke around and this is a pretty bad joke. I know
there's a few brothers who are Arab here. Don't take any offense to this. This is a, you know, a distant relative of my father's who's Pakistani. And he says,
He used to tell me jokingly all the time, he has to say, you know, US Pakistanis were free from any sin. So while Mashallah, how can you say that he's like, because Allah never sent a prophet to the Pakistanis. Do you know any profits that went to Pakistan? Like Mashallah, that's some really strange, you know, thoughts or ideas, but, you know, that's just a light hearted way of him putting it, but a loss of hanaway to adolescent prophets and messengers to places and people at times where it was most needed.
At the time, on this day, many years back and we will focus on that but on this day on the 20th day, during the month of Ramadan, what took place what historical event took place?
Right, Fatah maka, Eva da he was in fact, what I eat in Santo Hunan, known as the de la he
said be really handy around vicostone field who in who cannot
fat tomeka the opening or the konkret and the conquest of Mecca. How the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the 20th of Ramadan, entered into Makkah and conquered Makkah might vary by a day or two in different historical
you know, evidences, but Allah
subhanho wa Taala shows us that it happened at this time, many years back. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the people of Makkah
are the ones who the Quran was sent to write it was sent to them and then of course the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went off to Medina. And we see during the conquest of Mecca, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters Mecca and with his Bow, bow and arrow with his bow, he takes it and he knocks over all of the idols that are there around the Kaaba, how many idols were there?
Okay, think of it. What is how many degrees are in a circle? 360 degrees in a circle, there were 360 idols around the Kava. Okay, there were 360 idols around the Kaaba and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not all of them over, you know, breaking the the idols when they entered makhan conquered Mecca.
In verses number 16 to 18, Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us not to dispute over Islam do not dispute over Islam. And that's something that sort of handler we need to bring to our attention is how sometimes we get into arguments over Islam or we get into arguments disputes over differences of opinion. Now in Islam, we have an and you'll see that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam warned us about the 73 different sects that will divide this among
those sects, we're not talking about the 72 that are wrong, or the 72 that are, you know, swinging away or push themselves away from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one
the sect or group which is it's not even a sect it's it's the agenda as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us and teaches us, it's the one method that is correct and right, we're not talking about the 73 different sects, we notice how people will vary and dispute in their arguments over opinions. So for example, one person says, I follow the chef and remote help another person says, I follow the handler method. Why do you do this? Why do you do that? Why do you put your hands here? Why do you put your hands here? Why do you put your hands here? And why do you put your hands there? All of them are not wrong, all of them are correct. Why? Because they're based on evidences
or interpretation of evidences, Hadith, etc, of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so therefore, when we dispute over things that are actually agreed upon, or proof is given, and there's evidences, we're not talking about belief. We're talking about different things practices, like how should I stand? Should my feet be this wide? Apart from my feet? Be this wide apart? Do my elbows and shoulders and knees and hips and everything? does everything need to connect with the person next to me? What is the opinions that are given? Those are not things that some kind of that we should be arguing over? And sadly, we see that scholars, they don't argue so much over these
opinions and viewpoints. It's the average person who is not as learned in the deen, that will hold on to the little knowledge of Islam that they know or have been taught. And they will fight tooth and nail to make sure that that's the way that it's done by everyone and anyone who does anything other than that is completely wrong. That's not the way our Dean teaches us to behave. That's not the method of the profits in the long run. I think he was sending them. There were times and instances that the Sahaba some of them did one thing and some did another.
Some of them would, you know, pray either prayer at one time or one place and others prayed in another place. Simple example. And so some handle that it's important for us to not argue over things that we are not well versed in, or we don't know as well. And this is extremely important for us to try and understand, especially at this point in time in the year where a lot of people come to the masjid. A lot of people are frequenting the masjid and now you'll see not only are they coming for Tada, we sadly They're coming for Asia as well. But a lot of people their main focus is taraweeh because after Ramadan, we don't see them coming very sharp either. And so we see how a lot of people
will come for Asia, they'll come for Tada, we and they will come for the MLA and they will come first.
right because people are awake having so hard. So the mustard is frequented a lot during the month of Ramadan. And you see that a lot of people who you may have not seen throughout the month are now coming and the two people or three people or four people or 10 people who you you don't regularly see regularly see in the mustard. They're arguing amongst themselves why they're not used to coming and seeing other people and meeting and saying Okay, okay, this person is praying, this person is moving their finger this person is you know, like this and then doing this to childhood. And then you know, some person might be moving their finger one person might be moving it faster another
person is moving at slower. One person might be moving in a circle and everyone starts to argue What is this? What does that mean? I don't know it's not hot. I'm chill, relax, learn, learn. This is what Allah subhana wa
As teaching us learn, and so it's important for us not to point fingers at each other. Remember, when you're pointing that finger at someone else, there's three more fingers pointing right back at you. Okay? So we need to be the person that learns first, before we go and point the finger at someone else and start to judge them based on a few things that we might see them doing that we don't know of. It might be a matter of us not knowing that that's actually part of the deen. Okay, we move on to verse number 30.
For those that are just joining us verse numbers 30 of sorta assura and we never asked what the definition of Surah assura is, what is the definition assura
consultation Where shall we or whom,
so Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us the importance of making sure and this was this was taught to us through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well, that we consult with others, family members consult with each other community members consult with each other. Right? And, and really importantly, based on the verses that we just went through, sometimes you'll notice in different massage it and I'm not pointing the finger at any mustard, this one or any mustard, because I don't I'm not part of any mustard sutra, or any mustard committee. Right. And I tried to remain that way. And sometimes you'll notice that committee members in you know, have massages, they
will fight and argue or they will complain to each other about certain things. And then sometimes they break themselves apart and create different packs or different groups that are arguing or opposing the others based on their viewpoints based on their culture based on maybe their own personal feelings sometimes based on the age group of their children. No, we don't want any youth programs in the masjid. Why? Because their children are already grown up. And their children are married and have young children of their own. And they don't see the need to have those youth programs. And then you'll see maybe another group that says no, our children are our youth. They're
young adults, they're not married, they're, you know, either out in the clubs, or they're here in the masjid, what's better. And so you'll see this this division in community members have had a lot and sometimes in board members or shootout members. And it's important for us to cooperate and that's why there needs to be an immediate and we need to learn the importance of respecting the immediate and the Amir's decision, even if everyone says no, we don't want to do this, but the image decides Yes, we're going to do it haha. So there's in that decision, do it work towards it and if it's a failure, if whatever the the decision is, and whatever you're working towards, if it's a
failure Alhamdulillah it's a learning experience. We learned not to do this again. We learnt not to do this again. In verse number 13, Allah subhana wa tada shows us that hardships or maybe even disasters that we face in our life
are because of our sins, Wilma. Also on back home he mostly
Bhima cat said that he deikun wire foreman, Kathy, and whatever strikes you of disaster or have a hardship it is for what your hens have earned. But he pardons much right Allah subhana wa tada forgives a lot. So remember, whatever hardships you go through, it's because we probably made that happen to us. Whatever happens to us that's difficult. And we see this as well in the examples of the previous nations where their prophets and messengers were calling them away from sin, and warning them that if you don't come closer to the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala, or in some of the nations if you don't worship Allah and stop worshipping these idols, a punishment or a
disaster or something will happen and come to you, but our nation, the Nation of Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wasallam we will not be destroyed by a sort of natural disaster or punishment of that sort, as in the entire nation, all of us will not be destroyed. This was something that Allah subhanaw taala spared us of. We will not see the punishments of the people of the past where their entire nation was destroyed, that will not come to the net and to the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam however, that re iterates and reinforces the importance of us as Muslims doing our part. We need to carry this Deen on our shoulders, we need to show the example of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam Wherever we go, and to whom whomever we meet, and that is something that we as individuals, all of us need to do, not just the scholars Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala like we took the verse Walter Come in, come on the other hand in a higher way
that there should be from amongst you a group of people who actively Go and call and invite people towards goodness and they refrain or stop people from evil and encouraged to do more good when they see good happening. However, it's the responsible
have every single one of us to live according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we took the verse yesterday, right? Woman, so no column memoranda, you know what I mean? Right? What is the best words The best thing, the best speech that we can have, and it is the speech of calling towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so it's important for us to understand that we all have a responsibility. Some people, their responsibility is more like someone comes to you and starts to debate with you about Islam or debate with you about the creation of Allah allows creation, right? And you don't have that knowledge. How long do you tell the person I am the average
person, I don't have that knowledge. I didn't spend years studying Islam, I learned what I need to do in order to get through my day as an engineer, as a doctor, as a lawyer, whatever it is, and that is sufficient for for me. However, in order to answer your questions, I will direct you to someone who has those answers, or who can help to find those answers for us. Okay, so that that's an example of how there's a group of us who are extremely learned and there's all of us who have to do our part, regardless, okay.
We move on and shout Allahu taala in verses number 32 to 35. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how ships ships are a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he made them to float and they steer they go through the water. However, if Allah subhana wa Taala, like you mentioned in the verses,
if he will, in verse number 33, he could, he could make the wind stand still.
And they would remain the ships or the boats would remain motionless on the surface of the water. However, when you think of water, you look at water, especially the the waves in the sea and the ocean and even in lakes. You see waves because the wind is blowing and the waves are making the water seem as though it's traveling in a direction even though maybe the body of water isn't but the surface is and Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that he is in control of the wind and he uses the example of the ship that the ship or the boat that you put into the water that might have sales. Now don't think of the ship that has a motor or an engine right that drives it through the water. The
ship that has sales, Allah subhanho wa Taala can make that ship stop in its place and never move Imagine you're on the ship and you have no you know you have no sales or you have sales but there's no wind you cast the state the sales but you're not moving why because of luck control the wind and even the ship that has the motor in it with no sale whatsoever. Allah subhana wa tada can still control that. We know it we took those verses right Bismillah him ha ha Omarosa in Nairobi, la foto Rahim In the name of Allah, it, it begins its course and it ends where Allah subhanho wa Taala wants it to stop. However, think of the ship that's in the water, whose engines are at maximum speed,
maximum capacity, trying to push this massive ship through the water. And the winds are so strong, they're pushing it backwards. As hard as it's trying to go in one direction. It's actually moving backwards who's in control. A lot can intensify the wind for that ship with the motor and bring it backwards when it's trying to go forwards. That's the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We take a simple example the Titanic, what did they say when it was built? When they were building it? Not even God can sink it? What happened on its first voyage? God sunk it Subhana Allah, right, a powerful message. movies were made of it documentaries, people research that people are still up
until today going and seeing the remains of the Titanic and talking about what happened and, you know, lots of money and wealth was lost down there. SubhanAllah up until today, people are still you know, highlighting the Titanic. And the one claim to fame that it had it was unsinkable that not even God could sink it. And on its first voyage it was sunk.
And it's a lesson for us because it was just off the shores of Canada who's coming here. So Pamela, right. It's a lesson for us to understand to open our eyes to realize that something so large, so powerful, this steel on it thick, like an inch, two inches thick, it is sunk. And some of you may know some of you were sailors My dad was a sailor he left Pakistan as I say there's a ton of love. Right? This the the structure the build of a ship, and it's massive and heavy but it doesn't sink. If Allah doesn't want it to sink because of buoyancy, it stays on the water. How does that happen? You take a piece of metal, you put it in the water, it sinks.
Right? You take even this Kleenex box, you put it in the water once the water starts to penetrate inside and it absorbs the water it sinks. How heavy is it? You take the Kleenex you put in the water once the water absorbs
It starts to go under the water. But a massive ship that weighs tons. Allah knows how many tons I don't know if anyone here could tell us how many tons of ship would weigh or maybe even the Titanic, it doesn't sink, unless Allah wants it to sink. And that's the power of Allah subhana wa.
That's the power that he has, he can make something even that doesn't have the sales go backwards even though the engine is pushing it forward. And so he highlights that here for us.
In verse number 51,
of sort of shorter, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us three different steps of revelation that was used in you know, bringing down messages to human beings.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says and will read the English and it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation, or from behind the partition, Revelation. How is revelation done? How does it come down? So I'll mention two three and then we'll we'll see if you can understand revelation or from behind the partition, or that he sends a messenger to reveal what he reveals to him. So the first one is, Revelation second is behind the partition. Thirdly is he sends a messenger behind a partition we understand the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to meet Allah subhana wa Johanna to receive the revelation. Right? It's behind the partition as in,
it's not like a sheet or blanket or a wall. But Allah subhanho wa Taala put something there that you can't see Allah subhanho wa Taala, a veil of some sort, whatever it is, it's irrelevant. Allah Subhana Allah in His infinite wisdom makes that happen.
The second thing that's easy to understand is the messenger. So jabril Allah has sent out and comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his hair, his you know, the hair on him is extremely dark. His clothing is extremely white, pure and clean. He comes in the form of a human being that's understood. Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the angels to Ibrahim Allah has sent him to new Allah has sent up in the form of a human being. It's understood, we understand it, that's easy. However,
the third category, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, sends revelation through revelation. Right? What does that mean? Like revelation comes down in the form of Revelation, in the form of a way the profits that Allahu Allah He was sending them sometimes he would receive revelation and it was as though his body was extremely heavy, extremely heavy, there's no partition, there's no messenger, but it's coming to him, and his body becomes really, really heavy. And there's a haben I shadowed the Allahu anhu his family members, they used to describe how the profits in the long run even sometimes body became really heavy and you could see him they would know they could tell like something's happening
to him. This is revelation coming to him. And Allah subhana wa tada highlights those three methods for us. Here in verse number 51 of sola shorter, we move on to the 43rd surah of the Quran
the What does it mean?
The ornaments, the ornaments of gold, more particularly as we'll see in the stories, right here in verses in the beginning of the sword on Sharla. To begin in verse number nine Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us when
men Kala Kasama T one of Allah yaku
laya coonan Kanaka
Aziz Allah Halim
in verse number nine Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that the machete Koon again, as we highlighted in the past few days, they themselves admit when they're asked about the creation or asked about themselves, who created the sky who created the heavens who created the earth who created yourselves, they will answer and they do answer Allah God.
Allah created us so they believe in that first element the Creator, a Lord, who created us Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim Alhamdulillah here Rob been me and they believe in Allah as their rub as their Lord as their Creator. But they don't worship a law. They don't or they worship other things with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Or and we know the different, you know, things that are out there nowadays in terms of belief. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to guide us and keep us upon Amen. I mean, let's move on to verses 26 to 28.
In verses 26 to 28, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how Ibrahim alayhis salam, he, he affirms his belief and he tells that to his father while he's gone Ebola him will he be he won't call me he in anybody in any
Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to his father, as his father we took his name as our and his people indeed I am disassociated from that which you worship. I don't worship what you were what you worship, I worship Allah you want to worship these idols, that's your business. I've tried I've spoken to I've explained it to you, you don't want to understand I am disassociating myself myself with you in verses 33 to 35 Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us an example of the luxuries on earth. And here we see, you know, some of the adornments or the ornaments of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he created for us on earth will read through them in sha Allah hota Hana
and if it were not that the people would become one community of disbelievers, we would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful for their houses, ceilings and stairways of silver upon which to mount ceilings and stairways of silver. And for their houses, doors and couches of silver upon which to recline. Imagine that, how beautiful it would be Subhan Allah, they disbelieved and so those who believe, as we see here, a loss of bandwidth and it goes on, and gold ornament, but all that is not but the enjoyment of worldly life and the hereafter with your Lord is for the righteous. We know that we're gonna have lots and lots of good things in general, right? But what is
the best thing? What is the greatest reward in genda? We mentioned it.
Seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most amazing thing that we will get in Jannah. Similarly, what is the worst thing the most horrendous punishment that will go to those who disbelieved in Allah subhanho wa Taala What is it,
that they will not see Allah subhanho wa Taala that they will be restricted from seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. And so we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from amongst those that not only benefit from those luxuries that he provided for us and created for us in general, but we also get to see a loss of Hannibal attalla, which is the ultimate pleasure that we will achieve and receive with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so in verses 33 to 35, he shows us that, and how this earth you will see that on this earth, there are people who will sit on gold, or who will you know, dress in gold somehow they will actually have you know, clothing made with with stitching
of gold and silver, so kind of luck. And you'll see how, you know, people drive cars coated in gold, we know that you can Google it, you see it on YouTube, cars coated in gold or pure Silver's panela look at the wealth that people have, but they're enjoying it now. They're enjoying it now. For those that believe that's a different, that's a different thing. They might use that now and Allah subhana wa, tada will question, don't think that just because they believe that we'll be let off the hook. No, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the poor person will enter into paradise 500 years before the rich person, not because they're being sinned for being punished for 500 years. But because their
questioning takes so much longer, they will be questioned about every single, you know, ounce of, of wealth that was given to them, we all will, but the person that has less will have less to account for and the person who had more, but gave more will have less to account for what did you do with all of this? I gave it? What did you do with all of this, I used it to build schools, I used it to build houses I used it to, to educate students so they could become doctors, lawyers, engineers who are Muslim, because the Muslim community needs that. And I'm not just going to put my money into building beautiful massage, and I'm going to put my money into building beautiful individuales
beautiful community members, beautiful people that are going to grow up to show that Islam is alive in the people who are also Canadians, for example, for example, living in Canada, right? It's alive in us, I could be a doctor, I could be a lawyer, I could be an engineer, I could be you know, a teacher or a professor and still be a Muslim at the same time. And when someone speaks against us, we have the people of education that immediately they stand up and they help us immediately. They say I'm a politician, I'm a Muslim, I have this position, I have the ability to to, you know, influence or have the power to create legislations or challenge them. I'm a lawyer, and I could do
it, let's do it. And so you put your money, the person who's got that wealth, they put their money to build individuals who will stand strong in the future when Islam is needed to either be defended, or simply to promote a good example, that I can be a Muslim engineer. And people respect me not because, you know, I'm a Muslim, but because I'm someone who's a good person, and they recognize me as being a good person.
And they dig deeper and they realize, oh, wow, Subhanallah that person is a Muslim, and they have these values. And so it's important for us to look at other places to also invest our wealth, and not just sit on our wealth or drive in our wealth and enjoy our wealth. There's nothing wrong with that. Again, I've said it before, and I'll say it again, nothing wrong with having a luxury car. Nothing wrong with having a big house, Allah subhanaw taala gave you the wealth. He doesn't want you to hoard the wealth and just keep it and accumulate it and not use it, use it. You want to wear nice clothing, because Allah gave you the wealth to wear it, buy it and use it. You want to drive a nice
car, drive it, there's nothing wrong with that. But make sure that when you earn your wealth, you're not just using it only for yourself and being selfish. You're also contributing back to society and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it compulsory for us to give zakat. 2.5% Subhana, Allah, we move on.
Verse number 51, to 53, Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us moose Allah has sent him his standing before fit our own trying to convince him of the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and feed our own disgraces Moosa and Pharaoh called out among his people, he said, Oh my people, does not the kingdom of Egypt belong to you? Doesn't Egypt belong to you? And these rivers flowing beneath me,
then do you not see, as in he's the one who makes this happen. He's the one that's allowing you to have, you know, the beauty of Egypt etc. Because we know that he wanted the people to worship Him and to follow Him and believe in him. And then in verse number 52, or am I not better than this one who is insignificant, and hardly makes himself clear, insignificant as in,
in verse number 53, you could see, then why have there not been placed upon him? bracelets of gold? The ornaments, right? The suit that we're covering? Why doesn't he have bracelets of gold or come with him? a congregation a massive amount of angels? Why did he come all by himself? He claims to be a prophet Musa. I know his sentiment, right? He comes to fit on and fit on his disgracing him making fun of him saying he doesn't have nice clothing. He's not even decorated in gold. He's got no riches on him. He has a company or he has no he has his brother. That's the only person who can't he comes with. And look at the way he speaks. As he mentioned in verse number 52, hardly makes himself clear.
And that's why Remember we said moose Allah has sent him had a speech impediment, and he made the dua. Rubbish. Ronnie Saudi were Sidley Emery. Why Lula up data melissani remove this not from my tongue, you have the Holy so that when I speak, the people will understand they will be able to comprehend what I'm saying and fit around is making fun of him. They're always making fun of moose, Allah has sent them to me he can't even speak properly, you're gonna follow this guy? Why?
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that Musa alayhis salam humbles himself, because he's been given knowledge. Before he was before he became a prophet. What did Moses Allah has sent him do?
Why did he flee Egypt? What did he do?
He hits someone with one blow and it killed him murder. And that goes to show us the difference between someone who has less knowledge and someone who has more knowledge, someone who and and this is a prime example for those of us who are students of knowledge. Sometimes you'll see, you know, a youth or might even be an adult who decides, you know what, now I'm going to study Islam and they take a book and they read it Oh, Mashallah, all of a sudden, you notice they think they become overzealous, extra passionate in Islam. Everything becomes how dumb why because they read one book, or they heard one lecture, and all of a sudden they start to judge everyone this is how long this is
how to um, this is how I'm This is how this is how you do it. You have to do it my way. It's not my way. It's the highway. And that's a prime example. Many students I've seen it before my eyes Subhana Allah and hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala gave me you know, the ability to receive one sentence one sentence of advice from my teacher that stuck with me in all the years that I was in Medina because I saw students who got extremely passionate with the deen that they started to say, you know, this person is going to hell that person is going to hell this person go Subhana Allah, how do you know all these people are going to Johanna because they would judge people. And that goes to
show us a person who has a little bit of knowledge starts to you know, get out of control. And a person who starts to gain more knowledge starts to relax and use a little bit more of this before they use more of this. Right? And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us Musa alayhis salam, he's standing before someone, previously he had the power he could just punch someone and knock them out and kill them. Why doesn't he do that? To find out why doesn't he just hit him once and how that's done. two films finished
No more. Right now he could be the leader. He destroyed the leader. Now he could be the leader. No, Allah doesn't want that. I'm not doesn't want that alone once moussaka has sent him to go to sit down, even though you're someone that can't speak clearly, even though you're someone that doesn't have wealth, even though you're someone that doesn't have respect among the entire nation of people, there's just a few that you know, respect to you. And you only have one person with you, your brother.
Go to sit down and conveyed a message. Humble yourself. Humble yourself. That's the lesson we learn from Moosa, it has sent him
in verses number 88, to 89, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complains to Allah subhanho wa Taala about his people and a lot instructs him to be kind, say to them, send them Peace Be kind, and soon they will believe right soon they will believe or soon they will know. If they didn't believe later on they will know that they made this mistake and we went through the verses of the people of the kurush and the message that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to them. We move on to Surah number 344
surah a de Haan Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here in Surah to de Haan, what does it mean to Han smoke in verses number one to five? Allah subhana wa tada mentions that the Quran was revealed on a blessed night in Enza now who feel a little more mobarak at in in Quinn mundaring laylatul cada Hiram min Alfie Shahar. This is the beginning to the end of Ramadan. I didn't think I would say that. This is the beginning to the end of Ramadan.
Tonight is the 21st night of this month,
tonight is possibly a night that is worth better than 1000 months,
worth more than 1000 months. That's over 84 years of consistently doing what you do during this night.
Imagine if tonight Subhan Allah is Laila to cuddle and we lose out.
Imagine if tonight is Layla to ricotta. But you gave $1
or you prayed to Africa.
Or you recited one verse of the Quran, or you smiled at someone with the intent of making them happy, because you intended to do so telling a lot in your heart and your mind. I'm doing this because it could possibly be Laila to Qatar and I want the agenda. I want the reward of this for the next 84 years and more for having done this for all of these years, over and over every single night solely for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada.
Imagine and I mentioned this during my Juma clip, but and I want to bring these points here to you know,
three things that I mentioned. First of all, you give $1 in sadaqa. And I'm not saying you will give it to the mustard, I'm not doing a mustard fundraising. But if you wanted to do that, that's great. That's, that's also still considered setup. Okay. But you wanted to give $1 to someone you saw someone that was in need, or you gave a dates of handler, we're about to break our fast you give that date to someone who's about to break their fast, and you get the reward of feeding someone who fasted the entire day you get their reward, they get the reward, but you get the reward as well. But you get the reward of having done that if it's Laila to cuddle for over 1000 months consecutively
every single day. How great is the reward? You gave that dollar? Every night during the last 10 nights you do that seeking later brother, instead of giving you know $10 on one night saying Oh, you know what everyone says it's the 27th night Let me just give $10 on later on the 27th thinking it's Laila to recover and call us maybe it was on the 21st. But if you give that dollar every single night, Allah Subhana Allah will allow you to catch it catch a little further on any one of those nights. And you it would be written that you gave that sincerely for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will get that reward of doing that every single day for the next 1000
months at four years.
And more, because Laila Takada is not equal to 1000 months, higher, alpha better than 1000 months. Imagine you prayed to Raka sincerely for Allah subhanho wa Taala, not the eighth or the 12 or the 16 or the 20. Doctor I have taught our we that we pray together, but you went to side or you after eating if thought now you
came into the masjid you sat down, and you or you stood up and you prayed to God, when no one else was praying, you did it on your own. And you did that every single day for the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
It will be written that you did that for 1000 months and more. Imagine if and I mentioned this yesterday.
And you don't need to imagine it. We can do it. You recite surah to F last. How long is Sora to F last someone count? Can you count for me? Count.
Ready, set? Go. Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Allah Ma Ma had a Maha Samadhi Lamia didn't want me while I'm Nicola who cufon ahead, stop. 1818 seconds. Okay, including the Bismillah you say 10 halus. Let's take an average between 10 to 18 seconds 12 seconds to recite sorta to airfloss the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us if you recite sort of closets as though you get the reward of having recited one third of the Quran that's 10 Jews of the Quran. Imagine if you recite sort of two plus three times every single night during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. You get the reward of having recited the entire core urn during that night, and if you catch Layla to recover,
it's as though you recite the Quran you get the reward of reciting the Quran. Every single night for over 84 years consecutively.
how merciful is Allah subhana wa tada
extremely merciful and tonight could be Laila to coddle. Don't miss out. Even if it's by saying one Subhana Allah. Remember, we hear stories all the time and people push us to be extra zealous overzealous stay in stand all night long. Yes, this habit of the Allahu anhu did that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did that. But there's a reason why years later on that evening, Bob said, Listen, we're gonna make today a little bit shorter, it's not gonna be like it used to be we're gonna do 20 out Why? Because we need more instead all hat Tada, we rest. That's the root word, it means to rest. It means to relax a little bit in the times that you're standing praying, you take
more breaks in between standing in your VM. And so even if it's something that you do that small, you know that you have to work, you know that you might have exam still, whatever it is, that's still going on in your lives. You can't just completely stay awake all night, every single night for 10 days straight, you might die. And that's something that's how long you intentionally are killing yourself. Don't do that for hours that you couldn't let it happen happen. Give every single thing its do right. Every single thing, including our body has a right upon us. And so for us, what we could do the least is to do something small, even if it's smiling, even if it's saying one Subhana
Allah, or Kelly Matan that the Latin Amazon Rafi fatahna listen to things that we could say that are so heavy on this scale, but extremely light on the tongue. What is it? What can we say? Subhan Allah will be handy. He subhana wa Halim, but don't just sit there and say
you don't even know what you're saying. Go outside. Look at the sunset or look at you know the stars. Look at the moon. Look at how every single night The moon is diminishing, and you're thinking to yourself, you know, we were looking for the moon. And then we saw the crescent and then it became full and now it's slowly going away. So Han Allah will be handy. He Subhana Allah He loves him, say it and feeling something inside of you. Imagine you'd be saying that every single night, feeling the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his power and might that he used in his creation for over 1000 months consecutively.
Wow. That's a loss of data. That's how merciful he is. Right? Hey,
the DSM Allah
Hello, we need to move on. It's 850 and a half two sodas to cover right.
So in verse number nine to 16 of Sora Doohan Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that He will send smoke as a sign to those who just believe there will be smoke and they will you know this smoke will disturb them it will be very difficult for them and smokes have had a lot we know I was talking about haze yesterday in Singapore and Malaysia. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. In verse number 38
verse number 38, Allah Subhana Allah says,
One bonus one
to one or Obama banging Have
you been and we did not create the heavens and earth
and all that, that's
Which that is between them in play so Allah subhanho wa Taala did not simply create this world you know, just like that for no reason no he created it with wisdom for a purpose there's a reason for this earth there's a reason for the sky there's a reason for us being here there's a reason for the plants there's a reason for everything we know some of the reasons we know that okay the plants gives us and give gives us oxygen, we get tomatoes, we got cucumbers, we got all these beautiful, you know, fruits and vegetables. But what are we here for? Well masala to Jean Noel INSA, inlandia, Buddha and every single thing that we do we turn into a type of very bad I recognize a lot in this,
it becomes very bad. I say, Subhana Allah, when I see something that reminds me of Allah Subhana Allah will be handy Subhana Allah, He allows him all of these things Subhana Allah are from the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he created for a reason. And they are busy in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the obedience of Allah. In verses number 56 to 58 no death in Jannah, as Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us there will be no death in genda. And the only deaths that we will face now is the death of this life, the death of this life, that we will die and then we will be resurrected. In general there is no death you will live and you will live and you will live and
you will continue to live beyond living. You will continue to live. And Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses us with that. For what for a period of time in our lives. 70 years, 80 years, 90 years where we're tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala Is it difficult upon us? Yes, do we complain? We do should we know we should do like a YouTube it has senem and be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala with everything even that which is hardship and hard upon us in verse number 58 Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us
but in some,
in some will be Nisa, Nicola, I lomita that
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that we have made this for an easy for you on your tongue, it simply flows off the tongue Subhana Allah. And this is important for us to also implement in our lives. Try to make yourself someone who loves to read the Quran and recite the Quran that it flows off your tongue. It just flows. It's so easy. In fact, what I mean by flow is not only pronouncing the Koran as a beautiful flow, no, what I also mean by that is that you're busy doing something and you just you know you're walking in like one more ham meadow and eat alone also, or you just start reciting from anywhere in the world. I wish jimsy well more ha ha you're fixing your car, you're
doing an oil change. You're at work you're you know signing some papers, you have a bunch of papers, oh, can you sign these 10 documents, okay?
See, movia will mean
and you just doing you know it's flowing out of you. You're not even thinking you didn't tell yourself I'm going to recycle on it naturally comes out of you because you're always reciting the Quran. And so it just flows out of you. You see people sometimes are walking in there humming to themselves you think they're humming, but they're actually reciting the Quran. You if you get closer Oh, I hear this is the recitation of the Quran. Right? Because they're busy with it. And you ask them what are you doing? Like what do you mean? What are you just doing?
Just walking? No, but what were you doing while you're walking? I don't know. What was I doing? Like you were reciting Quran? Oh, yeah. Okay. Like it just it's normal, it flows out of them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from amongst those who the Quran flows from us. I mean,
we move to the next sutra and we're not going to take much in the next slot, which is the 45th surah of the Quran. So a lot of jatiya and Allah subhana wa Adana here shows us it's the sutra known as, what's it called? The kneeling or crouching down right? In verses number one to 15. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows His signs, His signs and how we need to pay attention to his signs. And he's reiterating the fact that we need to focus on the signs of a loss of Hamlet and his greatness. Honestly, if there's one thing that we focus on, after this month, we're gonna move on.
Fine, find the signs of a loss of bandwidth and his greatness in your life. That's it, tried to find the signs of his greatness in your life. Whether it's,
I don't know having electricity in your house, or having the same though that I've been wearing for the past eight or nine years, but it still looks like it's brand new. That's a sign of a loss of power without his greatness that he put in Whoa, that came from an animal that I closed myself with. So hon Allah, that's amazing. Right? And you thank Allah Subhana Allah recognize His signs in the creation. If that's what we do for the next 11 months in sha Allah will remain close and connected with a loss of Hannah with Anna and ready for the next month of Ramadan to come along. In in verses number 14 and 15 advice
To the believers to forgive others and know that your actions in verse number number 15. know and understand that your actions are, are either for you or against you. Please forgive me speaking at this time of the day after this many of this many hours of fasting, the mouth is extremely dry.
And so Allah subhana wa tada says, you know, understand that your actions are either for you or against you. So whatever we do, is either going to benefit us, or harm us in the future. And so it's important for us to always be cautious or sorry, conscious of our actions. Verse number 24, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions time, and they say, there is not our worldly life, we die and live and nothing destroys us except time. Wrong.
Wrong. Allah owns time. A lot of people run on the clock, you know, that statement, I'm running on the clock. Yes, that means we're busy. And we're running on the clock. And time is definitely running out. No doubt our time is running out. But we don't know when that time will end. We don't own it. Allah owns it. And those that think that their time is this time in their life. And that's it, there's no other time, they will never live after this wrong, they will be resurrected and there will be a hereafter there will be gender and there will be jahannam. And we will give account and we will stand before a lot we will come from the ground. And so that is actual time. He owns time, and
we can't even comprehend comprehend what is infinity. I said before you will live and you will live and you will continue to live in gentlemen. What does that mean? You know, when we say it'll go on and on forever? We can't honestly if you sit there and try and comprehend forever, how do you comprehend forever? You can't until you live it until you live it you will know what it feels like to go on and on forever and to never end and we haven't done that yet. And that's one of the blessings of genda as well.
And the last three verses we will take his verse are verses 2728 and 29.
When he learned he will consume or it will we omit Takuma Messiah, Yom Eden, yes, subtle mobile cleadon Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here in verse number 27.
To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and earth. We know that we said it we we went over it and the day that the hour appears and the day the false of fires will lose those that disbelieved and Allah subhanho wa Taala they will lose. And so we see here how Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that every nation in those verses, you can read it 28 and 29 will be kneeling down. They will be kneeling down in verse number 28 and this is the title of the sutra they will be kneeling down out of fear yesterday we said the verse that shows us that our heart will feel as though it's in our throat and we asked a lot to save us from amongst those that feel that and protect us with the shade
on the Day of Judgment. Those that fear they will fear it so much that they feel like that rollercoaster ride where their heart goes into their throat here Allah subhana wa tada mentioned they will be so scared with fear they will be kneeling down as though you're begging you're scared you don't know you're hiding yourself you're kneeling down in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala entire nations, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala not to make us from amongst those that are punished and go through hardships and struggles on the day of judgment and afterwards, we ask Allah Subhana which ended to protect us in this life and in the Hereafter and ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive
us during this month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us a little cuddle and to benefit and maximize from Laila Takada during this these last few days, the beginning of the end of the month of Ramadan.
And we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept all of our efforts and good deeds and those that will be here drink decaf and to forgive our family members and relatives. miniato banana mean some a lot of sentiment about again, Anna Vina Mohammed vilela earlier safilo sell him on his icon located in Santa Monica Moroccan to LA he over the counter.
