and this is an Islam a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:32--> 00:00:33

Over the last few weeks,

00:00:35--> 00:00:38

you may have noticed that we've been speaking

00:00:40--> 00:00:40

about

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

the objectives of the Sharia.

00:00:45--> 00:00:49

We spoke about the objectives of Hajj

00:00:51--> 00:00:54

last week, was a bit of a higher grade lecture

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

when we spoke about

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

the

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

Sahaba in Santa Salam

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

and how they applied their minds to the Quran.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

And we said that

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

124,000 Sahaba,

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

lift the plate of arafa

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

and conquered the world spiritually and technologically.

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

And I really am at a loss to explain

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

to you

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

what was the secret of the Sahaba.

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

So I have put to myself a test

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

that I will try and find

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

what is it

00:01:56--> 00:02:04

that motivated for Sahaba? To do what they did? What did they have, that we don't have?

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

Why is it that we are still 300 years after coming to this country, basically still standing on the same spot?

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

In fact, we're going backward.

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

Why is it that

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

we have not made a visible

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

and long lasting impact

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

on the people of this country? Why is it that

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

we have made very few converts?

00:02:44--> 00:02:55

of the majority of the people of this country? What do we lack with Sahaba they come they conquered the world they converted the Persians, the Persians at a much higher

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

level of culture than the Arabs had.

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

The Romans ruled the world the best armies were the armies of the Romans.

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

Not only did they conquer the lands, they conquered the hearts

00:03:10--> 00:03:16

made them Muslim. Some of the best Muslims came from Persia and from Rome

00:03:18--> 00:03:23

so what did they have that we worried that 124,000 Sahaba head what do they have?

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

Well, most of them were illiterate first of all.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

So they were non literate they couldn't read nor write

00:03:34--> 00:03:58

number one, number two, they were poor people just some of them had just one piece of clothing that sometimes they had to share with their wives they want to have in Medina was so poor that in the mornings when he went for further Salah he had to put his wife in a hole and cover the hole so that he could have a clock to go to the masjid

00:04:01--> 00:04:14

so what did they have which we don't have? We have cars we have brains we have dedication we have degrees our children our we brag about our children Mashallah may doctor and may seem

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

that we making no contribution, zero contribution. I wish I could have been at Islamia today. There's a very great scholar there today. Maybe we should lock this magic logo there.

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

Maybe will benefit more than what I'm going to say to you today. So these things concern me worries me.

00:04:36--> 00:04:38

So we have to find the secret. And I think

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

the secret lies

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

in the Quran. It has to learn

00:04:47--> 00:04:54

because you must remember the 20 124,000 components left arafah there was no book of Buhari with him

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

all the time.

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

was a memorized version of the Torah

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

and what they saw of the Navy Salah we have the full extent

00:05:10--> 00:05:16

of the words the actions everything the prophets of Salaam had with everything today.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

Yet we are where we are.

00:05:23--> 00:05:39

So what then motivated these people to give their lives I mean they gave their lives not only the what they possess but the very lives they gave. With joy, they died with smiles on their faces, they went into the metal, like metal or hood.

00:05:43--> 00:05:50

Once a habit Navy Sallam said to the Sahaba journalize the feet of Mount Hood.

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

And once a hobby was chewing a date,

00:05:56--> 00:06:06

and it's spelled out the date. And he said, must I first choose the date before I can smell Jana? You spec out the date a deer rushed into battle and he was killed.

00:06:07--> 00:06:11

What motivated that? How many of us will do that today?

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

Well, I do it, will you do it? Give you a life. We'll think about 1000 reasons why we come over jihad, my wife, my children, my business.

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

I'm young, I will live long still.

00:06:28--> 00:06:37

So we are the Crossroads really, in our lives as Muslims not only here in this country in the world, I mean, I travel the world I see Muslims at a crossroads.

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

And yet, at this Crossroads that we stand,

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

the world is waiting for us there's no doubt in my mind, that the world like we waited for the

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

Muslims that came out of Medina and we will inshallah go into that

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

at a later stage. So what I've decided to do is

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

on the Quran is a massive book

00:07:05--> 00:07:09

I've tried in my life to make Tafseer of some of the verses of the Quran.

00:07:11--> 00:07:18

But that will take a very long time and that more for you to read on your own. Or I'm going to try to do

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

is to look at

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

the surah of the Quran

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

surah by surah not verse by verse.

00:07:32--> 00:07:37

Because having read the Quran so many times, we know that the Quran

00:07:39--> 00:07:50

sometimes has given a name to a Surah Baqarah the suit of the car and that name indicates the importance of that surah and the important lesson in that surah

00:07:51--> 00:07:58

so everything in Surah Baqarah will revolve around certain themes, certain objectives.

00:08:00--> 00:08:05

But you know, when you read the surah when you read the Quran, like we read the Quran, we think every surah separate there's no separate

00:08:07--> 00:08:13

every surah in the Quran from Surah Fatiha. So to Surah tunas actually is a link between every surah

00:08:14--> 00:08:23

there is a link between every surah so what we will endeavour to do in Charlotte try to do is to look at because that is what the Sahaba that is what they had.

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

And when they conquered the world was nothing else. No matter what we want to say today, no matter what we want to do today. Today we want to

00:08:35--> 00:08:46

include in the main view of success of Islam many other things and we say this will give us access and that will give us access and this will bring us closer to Allah that will bring us closer to Allah.

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

But really our success lies and

00:08:55--> 00:09:05

cannot lie anywhere else must land the foreign and must of necessity lie in the example of Muhammad Allah because he was the living book he was living for.

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

So this is a mighty task

00:09:12--> 00:09:18

and inshallah with your drawers. I will try and look at the portrait in this particular fashion.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

First we will look at your two factor and I've done it before

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

but just as as read look at

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

Abu huraira says, and I want you to listen carefully because the many benefits of it. Many things you know will be repetition for you today. But important for you to remember to go back and had lunch at the table today. We'll sit with your wife and you tell her about the benefits of Surah Fatiha the greatness of surah

00:10:00--> 00:10:10

After all, it means the opening and without an opening without a key you can't open any door. So far too high is the key to the door. It opens the door.

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

And Abu huraira says the Navy sasaram said about Surah Fatiha al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen

00:10:20--> 00:10:31

well Makita was several masani one for an LA v abora signavio salon in describing certified to have an IBC What did he say? He said,

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

Of course it starts with Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen he says that is

00:10:38--> 00:10:40

swatter Fatiha consists is called

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

mother of the Quran,

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

omo Kitab, mother of the book,

00:10:47--> 00:11:07

several ramazani the seven verses work for an album and the great book that is raped. So what is it what? You know, we've heard of the mother of all battles in Iraq that type what is omokoroa own man is the mother of the Quran, the mother of the what is all mean?

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

What is the meaning of ohm in this context?

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

The Arabs tell us that own means when refers in this context to

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

the mother of the Quran, the seven verses of

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

Fatiha is called own because the word Omen Arabic

00:11:31--> 00:11:50

is that under which a lot of things are contained to the error to say for example, the skin around the brain is called Morris, the mother of the head because it contains the whole of the brain inside it the flag that the Muslims fight and it's called

00:11:51--> 00:12:04

the mother why because under the flag is contained the whole army with its commanders and everything else. So it means Omer Quran means that the Father is that canopy

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

which covers the whole of the camera.

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

And so you find with markers called

00:12:13--> 00:12:21

the mother of all villages. Because maca contains the center of the earth, the beginning of the creation of the world was started in muck.

00:12:22--> 00:12:37

And of course, as you know, the Kaaba is on the dounia but it stretches right up into the seventh heaven, in the angels around it. From the earth right to the seven heavens, under the throne of Allah was found what

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

the Quran is called alpha. It's also called unhemmed

00:12:45--> 00:13:02

have means the praises the praises that we put on allows for hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen All praise is due to the Lord of the universe. And it's interesting to note that

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

the Quran begins with Allah amin Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen What does it mean?

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

What is Allah

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

all praises you to all of the lord of them?

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

What

00:13:26--> 00:13:33

do you say? Sorry? The Lord of the universe. The Quran begins with establishing

00:13:35--> 00:13:41

the universal nature of Islam ends with what? What is the lawsuit?

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

It's a lawsuit.

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

Sorry.

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

What's the lawsuit on your book?

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

nice, cool out of bidness.

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

So the Quran is between two words Allah mean endless.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

Universe, mankind.

00:14:07--> 00:14:24

Allah dozens are hungry. larabie muslimeen colada. grabill muslimeen. I take refuge in the Lord of the Muslims. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Muslims. Allah says Allah hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen upon goodness,

00:14:26--> 00:14:35

say I seek refuge in the Lord and nurse mankind. Which means that this book from its first letter to its last late is meant for who?

00:14:39--> 00:14:39

For who,

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

or everyone who's everyone?

00:14:43--> 00:14:47

mean for the whole of humanity, not meant for Muslims

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

alone.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

And I suppose this is the first motivation of the Sahaba that they realized that they first mission

00:15:00--> 00:15:21

Must be to take this book which starts with Al Ameen an angel of nice to enough to take it to the people to take it to the Christians and the Jews and the sabians and the Persians and the Romans. And whoever they find along the way they were happy they are confident in this book which allows for how to listen to them.

00:15:24--> 00:15:50

And so it's got a first name is called alpha second name is called. And the third name it's called the third name also called Uppsala. Surah, to Salah Surah Surah Fatiha to to Salah. obvious why it's called surah to Salah. Why? Because it is that surah which we read every rackable salah and because of the Hadith,

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

which you all have heard on the radio and which I've quoted to you Well, last fall, another says

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

custom to solid any ouabain abdeen the same.

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

Custom to I have divided the Salah between me and my sermon into two paths.

00:16:11--> 00:16:11

While

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

Alhamdulillah hills Rabbil alameen Kala hamadani Abdi

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

Allah says and when my salmon says al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen I say I answered him and I say to him, oh my servant.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

You have praised me.

00:16:31--> 00:17:00

And so every verse as a response from our last Hunter, whenever we read the party happiness Alhamdulillah Allah replies or Rahmani Raheem Allah replies madico meeting Allah replies, er kidnap him after every verse allows for hunger responds to us. So it is called our Salah, because Allah Subhana Allah says that he divides the Salah, meaning the father half between himself and between us, the father contains seven verses, we all know that

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

it has 25 words in it 25 words

00:17:08--> 00:17:13

which also corresponds to the fact that Allah mentions the names of 25 prophets in the Quran.

00:17:15--> 00:17:25

It also says 113 letters, which is significant because the Quran consists of 114 sutras.

00:17:26--> 00:17:39

So if you exclude Fatiha from the 114 surahs, there are 113 left and the five to have contains 113 laters laffel, like the surah.

00:17:42--> 00:17:56

In the landfill helical cutter maraca mala consists of exactly 114 letters, which equates to the 114 swabs or sources of the whole of

00:17:59--> 00:18:13

the Virtus. One of the virtues of this great surah first virtue there are many virtues I can't give you all. I will confine myself to me to two or three of the virtues they bought in and taken to offer him a Muslim Imam Bukhari

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

Buhari reports Rahim Allah that side and who did the same from the lottery.

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

side, he said they were on a journey to traveling.

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

So they came across a village

00:18:30--> 00:18:40

and a woman from the village came to them and say to them, our chief has been poisoned. And all the men have left a village and we don't know what to do is going to die.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

Is there anyone amongst you who can heal him?

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

So one of the Sahaba very ordinary Sahabi

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

he said, Okay, I'll go, I'll just have a look to didn't

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

know what he's going to do.

00:19:01--> 00:19:06

So he went, he came back, he came back with 50 sheep and some milk.

00:19:08--> 00:19:15

So how was the price How was it? What did you do? He said, Well, I read the Fatiha and he became well again.

00:19:17--> 00:19:26

So the Sahaba sitting, so excuse me now aware Did you hear that way when you come into this reading of it, not to him?

00:19:27--> 00:19:35

So they said now You keep quiet. They were upset with him. They said You keep quiet until we reach Medina because we have to ask them if you sell them about this matter.

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

So they went to Medina. Firstly they went straight to the Navy Salam ala rasulillah he went and this man was alienated the fact they hardened the men became well man gave him 30 sheep we said to him wasn't text the sheep until the profit is given is when the milk will bring to Medina Nobody must touch it or drink it until we have got a verdict from Mohammed salsa. So the Prophet, they said the Prophet said

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

why America and re n Haruka

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

visa sounds strange.

00:20:07--> 00:20:09

How did he know

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

that Sumatra Fatiha is one of the sources of healing in the

00:20:18--> 00:20:29

FC mo scmo laudry Buddhi visa visa Sallam said to the harbour, then divide the sheep amongst yourselves and give me also a portion.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Meaning that NASA was pleased with this man and it's actually because I lost

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

my Maha Shiva

00:20:42--> 00:20:47

says that the Quran was revealed as a medicine and a mercy.

00:20:48--> 00:20:55

So you see in this in what we deem to be the simplest and easiest surah is the greatest myths in Islam.

00:20:58--> 00:21:03

So don't call the Imam in the chair to come along to our new father or mother when they visit

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

your sincerity

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

in reading Surah Fatiha for them

00:21:12--> 00:21:16

may reach a loss of 100 in such a pure form, Allah will give back to the person

00:21:18--> 00:21:31

because maybe the man will come because you're offering him maybe lunch or supper. Maybe you know he's going to get some Slava to something that makes a lot everybody cries and save the poor man gets gets worse and worse and worse.

00:21:36--> 00:21:50

So there are two things there is a sincerity in the belief of allows for handlers power to do everything. Well who could leash a

00:21:52--> 00:21:52

machine

00:21:54--> 00:22:01

and ease over all things. You have to believe this. If you're waving this one second image leaves you

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

even for one second thing all wait a minute.

00:22:07--> 00:22:31

to Dr. wasabia. Who Allah can give me Reza get to do it myself. Total amounts leaves the moment that enters Oh, I have to go to somebody to do something for me. The moment you have that wave of colosse say jump up and down and he says Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah that he will say that I've done my job. done my job.

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

I've taken

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

the oma of Mohammed Omar Mohammed away from iya

00:22:42--> 00:22:42

iya can

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

we do we worship and from the unknown to speak up please don't say check segment go to the doctors.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

The doctor is the suburb

00:22:54--> 00:23:03

The doctor is the direct cause in application of his knowledge by the Musab people ask about the cause of all causes is Wu

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

Tang, who gave the knowledge allows.

00:23:08--> 00:23:17

He's only the means that allies place for us to get to the point where by the mercy of our lead the knowledge which I was in so we will get Shiva from Allah.

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

So then the greatest to alpha secret is what?

00:23:23--> 00:23:29

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen until the end of Surah Al Fatiha Mr. Muslim reports.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

In the Abbas said the cousin of the neurosurgeon said

00:23:34--> 00:23:39

we will one day sitting and jabril came to the Navy salatu salam to bring revelation

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

as jabril was sitting

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

we have a noise coming from the from the sky from the summer

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

gibreel Nablus is locked up.

00:23:55--> 00:24:04

And he said to us and the Navy solo last time he said a door has just opened in the summer in the heavens,

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

which has never been opened before and never will be opened again after this

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

must be something great. And he says an angel has come through this door

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

as the same that from heaven.

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

And this angel came to the Navy sola Salaam and he said Dr. rasulillah I bring glad tidings from Allah.

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

I brought in do rain to lights

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

the long lasting lights

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

two lights, what are the two lights is Angel number one. I brought you the fact

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

and the last three verses of Surah Al Baqarah. What are the last

00:24:53--> 00:24:53

little

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

while individu Murphy and for Tsukamoto

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

has to be complete until the end of the school does these three verses is a must for a Muslim to read

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

every night before he goes to bed.

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

I'm going to tell you Am

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

I agree joke, so you have to sit, you have to listen to this joke.

00:25:23--> 00:25:25

And don't I can't tell jokes because I can.

00:25:27--> 00:25:34

This man said to his wife One day, he said to his wife, sweetheart, do you even dream of me? Do you ever see me in your sleep?

00:25:36--> 00:25:41

Now that the wife, the husband said to the to the wife, and said, my wife Do you

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

ever see. So the wife said,

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

No, I never seen my dream because I read surah two ikusi every night before I go to sleep.

00:25:58--> 00:26:07

Obviously, you're very obviously not very complimentary towards his wife because I mean, the wife isn't complimentary. So if you don't get the job you asked for free next year after the Juma

00:26:15--> 00:26:21

so I can curse is please make this a way to habit read

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

this, these verses

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

before you go to sleep, I read the other day

00:26:30--> 00:26:37

that the nanny selasa lump at appointed Abu huraira to distribute Zika.

00:26:42--> 00:26:59

And the next day he came to the Navy. So somebody said how are they go? Are they the distribution go? He said you're a tsunami there was one man who came. I didn't want to give him xhaka. But he started talking about he's got a wife, he's got children, he's got dead. Eventually I gave him

00:27:01--> 00:27:05

and he said to me, I'm not gonna come again. You give me today. Give me whatever, you

00:27:06--> 00:27:10

know, coming here again, I'm not going to ask you again. So the next day

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

again, as

00:27:13--> 00:27:48

the same man came back with the same stories. Oh, um, she can't get work in Argos. Got a wife of a children. Proper Art abora. What did you do? He says, Well, I relented eventually I gave him and I said you might you don't come back and don't come back tomorrow again. Set it up again as about what happens if the statement came back. Same story. What did you do? He said, I refused. The prophecy. What happened from a new Professor What happened? You said no. Then he said to me, he said I'm going to teach you something.

00:27:50--> 00:27:54

If you do it shaytan will never hinder you in your sleep.

00:27:55--> 00:28:03

Sabra says so the man asked me what is it? So the man said to read before you go and sleep I clickers allowed I have

00:28:05--> 00:28:14

Sabrina said you know when this man told me this, I thought to myself, alright man, give him Okay, so I gave him more. So the next one and he said, You know who that man was that was

00:28:17--> 00:28:29

just happy. Happy. Let me say sir, that was shake on. He knows. Jamie liked you so much gave him so much. He was testing you also testing your faith.

00:28:30--> 00:28:35

So very important, of course, also to read for your children, your babies, your husband, your wife,

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

everybody else.

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

So that's what I call the sutras of the Quran

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

starts with the name of Allah

00:28:47--> 00:29:06

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim except of course surah which doesn't start with this fella surah to October so October is the only surah in the Quran, where you don't begin with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Why? Because Bismillah R Rahman Rahim is found inside the surah

00:29:09--> 00:29:18

it is a law as I said on the day of read, you know people say Allah, Allah, all kinds of things.

00:29:19--> 00:29:54

Allah This is the most exalted of the smell the last one that refers to his names as the most beautiful names. So you should say beautifully, a lot. You can't say a law, you should learn to say a law. But please don't say a law because that is the name the highest most exalted name or laws, even to call upon a law by is mislim by the highest name. You should say what? Yeah, Allah, Ya Allah Ya Allah subhanaw taala only said those that when they when they when they wanted to say that they said yeah, Allah. Yeah.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

It expresses Alhamdulillah Bismillah R Rahman Rahim expresses pray

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

in gratitude

00:30:02--> 00:30:07

the Surah Al Fatiha represents the heart and soul of the Quran.

00:30:09--> 00:30:17

It expresses the contract that we made with alone subhanho wa Taala what is a contract? That we are

00:30:19--> 00:30:25

two things Allah made us two things Allah made us in the jar I will fill out the

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

bill all the words

00:30:30--> 00:30:31

in the jar

00:30:33--> 00:30:38

Allah says to say to the angels, I'm going to put on the dunia my Khalifa.

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

What is my representative?

00:30:45--> 00:30:50

No one is going to take this deep into the four corners of the earth. No one is going to pray

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

make a bother only to me believe only in me asked only me.

00:30:59--> 00:31:04

But allows me to handle it also gave us a greater status than khilafah What is that?

00:31:06--> 00:31:16

We are we we are Iberdrola. We are the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala. So we have these two great sages were the slaves of Allah and were the hula favelas.

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

So don't say well, I'm just a slave of Allah. No, no, no, you also have to laugh when

00:31:22--> 00:31:27

you are the Hanif of Allah, in the regeneration of the earth.

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

In the guidance of mankind, you are the slave of Allah in India cannot good What can

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

we do we worship and the alone. So you see, you have these two,

00:31:39--> 00:31:53

balancing status, which allows you to feel proud, Allah, Khalifa to life. And Allah has made a visa v slave. So you will never be a slave to no one else. Except your wife of course. But I mean that's

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

and vice versa.

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

But there is other benefits we will talk about.

00:32:04--> 00:32:09

The Koran expresses his covenant, a covenant of love and the covenant of Eva,

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

worshiping Allah and carrying out allows for Herodotus.

00:32:16--> 00:32:19

Sharia he spot in the world.

00:32:21--> 00:32:31

It is also a prayer. People say, Let's read the Fatah da to avidly read, the highest quality can read is to read the DA called alpha.

00:32:33--> 00:32:33

Now

00:32:36--> 00:32:43

one of the secrets of the Fatiha is that it contains all the meanings of the Quran in the seven verses.

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

The Koran revolves around the speech of the poor.

00:32:52--> 00:32:57

The words of Allah revolves around three things and I mentioned these three things last week

00:32:58--> 00:33:10

in a different context, but the again the rises, that the first speech of allows for is the speech of aka aqeedah or belief. Who do you believe in?

00:33:11--> 00:33:27

That's the first question that's answered in the Quran. Because we live in a loss fountain. Number two, it speaks about the Iboga the Quran, the Quran speaks about belief. That's why I say always to you to my students to their alma mater, everybody.

00:33:29--> 00:33:33

Our belief system is clear.

00:33:34--> 00:33:39

Cast in stone in the UK, we don't go anywhere else to find out who is Allah.

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

Allah has made itself quite clear. In the Quran, every verse of the Quran talks about who is Allah who we are, and who we should worship and we should not wish. So Allah

00:33:52--> 00:34:00

has made the first theme of the Quran the theme of belief. second theme is worship. He and I both

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

lead we worship

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

and worship My dear brothers and sisters is no just

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

worship is every act that we do to gain the Pledge of Allegiance.

00:34:15--> 00:34:19

Every effort you do every single activity working is an act of worship.

00:34:21--> 00:34:22

Because you're doing it to please

00:34:23--> 00:34:26

feed your family. All the objectives is to please allows

00:34:27--> 00:34:40

the third one as I mentioned, logic was more ominous. Today there's a different name, man hi Julia. The program of life the Quran gives us a program of life. Don't tell lies.

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

Don't break your promise.

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

I always tell people

00:34:49--> 00:34:53

if you can't do something, say no. Don't say in Sharla

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

say no.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

One of the tracks is checked on Texas East

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

somebody's asking we don't want to say no yeah we don't want to say no. So we saying Charla knowing

00:35:07--> 00:35:17

absolutely clearly that we're not going to do it. We know inshallah means no. So why why use the name of a loss? So you

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

can say no

00:35:23--> 00:35:23

difficulty

00:35:24--> 00:35:28

he patient to latest is the most difficult things to say sometimes.

00:35:30--> 00:35:36

And another thing that is also very difficult to say, if you can conquer no and yet you've conquered the world.

00:35:38--> 00:35:41

If you can say, if you can know when to say yes

00:35:42--> 00:35:42

textile

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

and you can know when to say no.

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

You become a man.

00:35:49--> 00:35:53

But if you love your life, second, ChildLine, disappointing, everybody around you.

00:35:55--> 00:36:03

You you'll develop a really weak character. And all those promises you've made to accom on your scale on the death piano or the broken promises

00:36:07--> 00:36:11

towards you, somebody comes to you and says, When Lamia, 100,000 Rand

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

Colin, me hundreds and lend me 500.

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

And you can't.

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

Or you can but you don't want to.

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

So what do you do? And you don't just say no.

00:36:29--> 00:36:29

What do you

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

say brother?

00:36:32--> 00:36:36

pays 100 grand gift. Don't any bank.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

Because one of the quickest ways to lose a friend, close a brother or sister neighbor is to make loans.

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

Unless of course it's a very necessary thing.

00:36:51--> 00:37:10

But you see a clear of people avoiding you for the rest of their life ducking and diving. We see them in the supermarket alchemy a sculptor thin days in karate duck this way. But how long can you do it. But if you tell them and you know I can't give you 1000 Rambo, this is 100 and you keep it as a gift for me don't have to pay us in the store.

00:37:12--> 00:37:20

She can have sleepless nights fitna going around, nice commercial Willy Batali. all that sort of stuff is macatawa to

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

your void, a void.

00:37:27--> 00:37:35

And we need to become strong to do this kind of thing. We need to look at our lives and see that we remove the Baraka from our lives if we don't do things,

00:37:37--> 00:37:38

to please our laws,

00:37:39--> 00:37:44

and to keep the strength of the community and the strength of the family bonds together.

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

So my natural highest program of life, belief,

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

worship programs life.

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

What are the fundamentals of Islam?

00:38:02--> 00:38:11

And are these fundamentals mentioned in the fact that what is the first fundamental of Islam, which we believe in? Now I'm a law hitter, bar khattala.

00:38:12--> 00:38:19

The first fundamental of being human is and being Muslim is that you believe that you're Nam,

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

plural, Namah

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

everything that you have comes from a loss.

00:38:29--> 00:38:34

You don't say it could be a baker D No, you say this comes from Allah.

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

It will say you know, Mashallah, you need to you know, work out you know,

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

for my life, I work hard.

00:38:46--> 00:38:52

You know, you say this console allows all this customer knows what I enjoy.

00:38:56--> 00:38:59

Allah says, any of you say I gave it to you, I will give you more.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

If you say God, I will take it away.

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

Because consumer loans, that is why when you die, you have no say over what you have.

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

You're not know say, What are you trying?

00:39:16--> 00:39:28

Mr. Big? No, I want you know, this was going this trust, and this must go to this child, and that must go to that child and I don't want that child to get anything and I don't want my brothers to get anything and I don't want

00:39:31--> 00:39:44

you don't indicate anything from what, from what? From what you leave behind. How do you get into this world? You go in with all those houses and cars and money in the bank when you came into the world? Or did you come into the world naked?

00:39:46--> 00:39:51

How did you get and when you came you're naked? Who gave all that stuff to you from where did it come from the bank?

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

from Allah.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

So who has the right to distribute it? Who does it belong to to Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

So when you die, who does it go back to Allah? So Allah says you won't get one eight Can you say, Oh, that's unfair, you know, that's an equal, you know, that's a woman's rights. You know, no, I'm not gonna agree with that, you know, we live in a modern world, excuse me.

00:40:16--> 00:40:28

When you're alive, and you have your money and you want to give one Santander and then the other two, right, can somebody come to you and say, five No, but you know you can't do that. Oh, sorry, it was my man absolute life I can do with it with Sharia says I can do it.

00:40:30--> 00:40:35

Similarly, when you die when when you say that reverts back to Allah, Who can say who can divide?

00:40:36--> 00:40:57

Who demands Allah? Can you say no? Why not? Because it belongs to Allah goes back to Allah He has the right to divided, though he wants to divided, which is enshrined in the Quran. So that is your belief is clear. You have a clear vision of where you're going. They have a clear vision of where you come from. You have a clear vision of who you are and what you have.

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

Now ambala Alhamdulillah you Robin.

00:41:03--> 00:41:14

Thanks to Allah for the Nam for everything and he gave us Lord of the universe. Number two is last. The second foundation stone of Islam is sincerity.

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

way in which versus sincerity embedded into

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

er cannot

00:41:24--> 00:41:28

even be sincere to Allah in your worship then to whom are you sincere?

00:41:30--> 00:41:41

But when I say you know, I repeat this. I have this terrible job of telling people what to do and what not to do. I wish somebody did leave me some time from this position.

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

Very difficult.

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

Sincerity to Allah.

00:41:50--> 00:41:58

So when we come into the masjid, which is the house of Allah and we have to pray to Allah. Allah that is the first sign of your sincerity.

00:41:59--> 00:42:01

I repeat what I said last week.

00:42:02--> 00:42:07

When you come into the masjid don't go and find the first place at the back of the masjid

00:42:11--> 00:42:14

when you visit bead you go right to the kitchen and sit in the yard.

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

He says can you tell

00:42:19--> 00:42:19

me I

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

know you want to sit in the lounge and enjoy the lounge in the lounge and

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

drink tea with me

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

by coming to the magical stickers are

00:42:35--> 00:42:37

not the most common

00:42:41--> 00:42:49

form for a fancy thing that's a quarter because you know why is he looking and waiting for me to come to the Salah is close.

00:42:54--> 00:43:18

Just as we want to be in front where to be in fact when you come to the masjid, please fill the some one of the things I've noticed. Malaysia etiquette is when people come to the masjid they fill the stuff already from the front you come you see the gap come in. You sit next to that man the next man sits next to that man the next man sits next to that man, beautiful martial, beautiful sincerity to allow Sparta number three is

00:43:21--> 00:43:42

to seek good companionship. First is we thank Allah for His mercies for his nap. Secondly, sincerity. Thirdly, to see good companionship is the nasty rotten stuffy guy was on the path of those who may have blessed we seek the company of those who are lost.

00:43:43--> 00:43:48

And we want any wonders to keep company with their bad company

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

and not those who have incurred Your wrath, our loss Pantera And finally,

00:43:59--> 00:44:04

to say that we are here only by the mercy of Allah

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

and we will energetic only by the mercy of our last panel.

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

And number six is the karma.

00:44:13--> 00:44:38

rectitude, firmness, Allah says in the Quran is or to select 4150 in a levy Nakamura buena la Suma staccato, very beautiful, let's go look at them. Allah says, into our full select which is 41st surah. In the Quran, verse number three, zero, Allah says, Those who say,

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

allies, our Lord

00:44:42--> 00:44:49

through mosque acabo and then they stand upon that never mind what even if our concern becomes

00:44:51--> 00:44:55

they will stand firm on rukban of law, always our Lord

00:44:57--> 00:44:57

What about

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Allah says

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

tetanus is the day they die. Allah was in angels out to them

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

that they must not see an enormous degree.

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

Why was she Ruby's genital Latika?

00:45:11--> 00:45:26

And they will be given the glad tidings that Jana will be waiting for them. And Allah says further about the people who stand firm on Robin Allah nano Leah openfit dounia

00:45:29--> 00:45:38

Surah facilite the 41st surah verse 30 Allah says Nando Leah oakum Phil hieratic donia

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

We are your only in the dunya. And

00:45:46--> 00:45:49

I'm not saying I know what you think.

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

I know.

00:45:52--> 00:45:59

So I'm giving you the verse as it is in the Quran, Nana we Odia who come earlier

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

for dunya but

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

not only

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

we are only in the dune after

00:46:09--> 00:46:10

Allah these angels.

00:46:13--> 00:46:19

So it's DICOM is very important, is the correct attitude is very important.

00:46:21--> 00:46:24

Number six, to believe in the era and to prepare for the

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

number eight certified contains the importance of da

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

people talk a lot about two after the salon da da

00:46:35--> 00:46:41

professors Adam said one of the places we do our is Mr. Job is after every salon.

00:46:45--> 00:46:48

But also remember that if a person doesn't want to make sense,

00:46:50--> 00:47:02

you can't say he's wrong. This is complete. And then kind of in the Arizona law, if I make fun only two records were only four records, only four records

00:47:03--> 00:47:10

only theory and only four records and I don't nothing else, no soon as no two as nothing can nothing.

00:47:11--> 00:47:18

Prophecy. He asked the Prophet What is my status The Prophet said if you do what you say you will go to jail.
