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

hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah

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

00:00:41--> 00:00:45

Blood Brothers and Sisters Oussama Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:48--> 00:00:54

Today, I want to share with you some of the thoughts that I shared with my students on Sunday,

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

obviously, in a more

00:00:57--> 00:01:10

synoptic form, but I think the lessons that we had on Sunday are good lessons, and I'm repeating it for those of us who can't make it on a Sunday. So those are always busy on a Sunday.

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

Those who work on a Sunday was to go to the beach on a Sunday

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

and so forth and so on.

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

Today, inshallah, we're going to talk about some of the

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

lessons of Surah Al Fatiha and we know that Surah Al Fatiha

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

is a summary of the whole Quran.

00:01:36--> 00:01:55

Which means just to refer to has of necessity, must have, for us the plan of life, the program of life, the complete puzzle of life was the Quran contains people complete prism of life. So today in sha Allah, and if we understand,

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

I believe the Surah Fatiha as we should understand this for Africa, I believe we will be able to explain

00:02:03--> 00:02:28

not only to our children and our families, but to any person who asked us about Islam. We should ask you what is Islam? When you start explaining to a person, what is Islam? If your child comes to ask you what is Islam daddy or Mommy, what do you say? Where do you start? Even non Muslim comes to us? What is Islam the way you start? So today inshallah will lay the foundation of a universal message

00:02:29--> 00:02:49

coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala. I know we read Surah Fatiha 17 times every time we think, you know, we read this surah seven times a day, what is he now going to tell us more? We read it and we understand that. And we know that translation of it. You know what more obviously to learn from it today's panel, you'll be surprised, and Obama surprised.

00:02:51--> 00:03:14

First of all, let's divide that into three parts. Make it easy for us. We'll divide into three parts first, the first three verses then the middle was then the last three verses. So we have seven verses. Because allows for the first one to the in the Quran, to say refer to her as a sub all Masonic the seven of repeated verses.

00:03:15--> 00:03:34

What do we find in the first three verses it starts off with and we'll start with Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen because this Narayan Rahim serves as part of the fight he had to say some fathers. So let's start with that which we all agree upon. Alhamdulillah he are of bellami now hamdulillah. I mean, the word Hammond

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

contains

00:03:39--> 00:04:10

two very important notions and ideas. It says all praise and thank you to allows paliotta one word, explaining to two things to us. And we know there are separate words for these two things in Arabic. The word for praise in Arabic is mother. And the word for thanks in Arabic is sugar, you say shukran. So these two these two praise and thanks is combined in the Quran. Well last.

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

And we know that

00:04:15--> 00:04:28

there is a difference between praising and thanking, isn't there? Why does Allah combine it with this is the thing difference between praising someone and thanking someone. For example, we all are commanded

00:04:30--> 00:04:44

to be grateful to our parents. It's a command or the province or command to do that we are command with everybody's command. You have to be grateful to your to your parents. Now, Ibrahim, for example. We had a father.

00:04:45--> 00:05:00

And he was Allah taught him to be grateful to his father to thank his father, but he also praise his father. No, we didn't praise his father. Why didn't you praise his father? Because his father was an idol maker who sold idols. In fact, everybody

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

Aim is a childhood idol. So you will find a disconnect between thanking somebody and praising somebody doesn't normally go together.

00:05:10--> 00:05:24

So, but in the case of Allah subhanaw taala, in case of husband, we both thank and praise alone. So what Allah, whatever Allah does, we praise Him and Rankin, will do both at the same time.

00:05:27--> 00:05:38

What does it mean? It means that our attitude as Muslims towards Allah subhanho wa Taala differs drastically from other faces.

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

And how do we differ from other faiths from Christians and Buddhists, and Hindus and Jews?

00:05:48--> 00:06:22

Because, as Muslims, we always say Alhamdulillah as a Muslim, we never say because there are some Muslim will say it, but it's Lucy's we never say, Wait, God, there's so much strife in the world with God. There's so much killing in the world ways god this Ebola ways God. They are tsunamis, ways God, people die every day. There is what Muslims are dying in Gaza, Muslims are dying in Palestine, Muslims are in Syria, by the 1000s way. Is God Muslim never asked that question. What do Muslims say?

00:06:23--> 00:06:46

They say in the law, he were in the LA era Joan, they said you must always Alhamdulillah we always say Allah knows better. But the non Muslim he says, so he's got all say to you, as a Muslim, who is your God? Where's your God in Gaza? Where is he? What is he doing when he when his people who believe in him and worship him are dying? We don't say that. So

00:06:48--> 00:06:58

why do some people say ways God and others say Alhamdulillah? What is the difference? Why are they saying do even amongst Muslims? Or you may not say but we might think

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

why? Because

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

those people who say that have what I call a one dimensional view,

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

one dimensional view

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

of the world.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

What What do I mean by that?

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

I mean by that there are two worlds that Allah created.

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

Alamo,

00:07:24--> 00:07:30

a Shahada this world, the world that we can see with our eyes, touch with our hands, and animal,

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

the unseen world.

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

So Muslim, says Alhamdulillah because he sees the world he understands the world through the prism of the

00:07:45--> 00:07:56

mirror only looks at the dunya system opportunities they allow for hundreds created two worlds. And if you had to look at this world, you must look it through. In other words, you must look it through the eyes of the Quran.

00:07:59--> 00:08:07

And because Allah we know that alone 100 Allah sees the world through the Alamo.

00:08:10--> 00:08:23

Therefore, in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala this always complete harmony, no matter what happened in the earth, in the eyes of Allah, Who is complete how this complete balance allows one to establish the balance.

00:08:25--> 00:08:43

And therefore we as Muslims, what ever Allah, Allah does, we say Alhamdulillah we never question a lot. Because we know that this world is not the end, there is another world connected to this world. And if you put the two together, there is complete balance and justice in the world.

00:08:45--> 00:08:54

Another beautiful thing about this kind of beginning, this kind of beginning allows family begins and by saying I will have to live

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

with we know for example, that a loss of a hotel has got many names.

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

The first name a middle name and a surname.

00:09:06--> 00:09:15

How many names or last 199. Those are the names that we know. We know that allows or at least that's at least 99 days.

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

But alone doesn't tell hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Malik Al Hamdulillah

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

Al Hamdulillah Rahim Al Hamdulillah al Hakim allowes Wagner says al hamdu Alhamdulillah. Why? Because if allowed to have the lesson Alhamdulillah for example, alcoholic, it would mean that we would show gratitude to Allah only in his position as creative Hollywood's creator or a Hey, we say only thank you Allah because you are him. But when we say Allah when we say Alhamdulillah we think and praise Allah.

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

Mahalo tala, for everything about him. So not only because he's our Creator, who is a sustainer?

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

Or is the Creator of the heavens and the earth? No, we praise and thank him because he's everything.

00:10:15--> 00:10:23

That's why we say, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. The other interesting thing about Alhamdulillah is that it is.

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

It is structured in a particular grammatical way.

00:10:30--> 00:11:16

We say All praise is due to Allah. Instead of saying, We praise Allah and thank Allah, instead of thing. I pray that that allows hangleton like, for example, in the fourth verse, what do we say in the fourth era kana? Budo. Allah, we worship you. There is the word Allah, you do it, we worship you. But he doesn't say we praise and technologies, all praise and thanks is due to Allah subhanaw taala. So what is the difference between saying, All praises you to Allah and we praise Allah, the difference is extremely profound, very profound. When we say, we praise Allah,

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

we've always been around to praise him.

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

When he was when he was the praise of diversity, we praise Allah say, I praise Allah. What about before me and what about after me?

00:11:30--> 00:11:44

No, so the last was Allah says, All praise is due to Allah meaning all praises, who is they before you we're angry that you praise Allah. Allah is praised. Now tomorrow, until

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

colo Allah and all those waste

00:11:49--> 00:12:00

any we also only say we praise Allah, then we exclude the heavens in the earth, isn't it? Because everything in the heavens and the earth operate alone.

00:12:01--> 00:12:20

So Allah says, All praise from everybody from everything we look at the Quran, for example, allows for nurses to rattle Hadid circle Hatcher, and in Surah asof these three sutras begin with exactly the same words sebahagian immerses them It

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

allows Wagner says everything in the heavens and the earth preys on Laos.

00:12:28--> 00:12:52

That's why Allah doesn't say, Oh muslimeen you praise Allah or and we should say we praise Allah know, what does Allah say Alhamdulillah everything in the heavens and the earth praises Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, if we say Alhamdulillah What are you saying? You are saying Allah is praised in all places at all times

00:12:54--> 00:13:04

whether we praise him or not, is not relevant. So Pinilla. So, this is a lousy introduction to himself in the factory.

00:13:05--> 00:13:10

Careful, listen carefully, what his introduction allows Rotella praises

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

and thanks, Allah says all praise and thanks is due to Allah. Then Allah now Allah after speaking about

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

hamd praise and thanks, Allah now

00:13:26--> 00:13:30

tells us and defines his relationship with us.

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

Al hamdu Lillahi

00:13:36--> 00:13:43

Rabbil aalameen allows wangler says that he has a particular relationship with us.

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

What is that relationship

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

that the relationship is at ease is he is the rub

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

the load, we transfer it as the Lord

00:13:57--> 00:14:03

and that is the heart and the crux of our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala at ionas.

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

Allah says, all mankind, worship you Lord.

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

And I'm using the word load because that is the word that we know. We normally translate the rap as load.

00:14:20--> 00:14:24

But in the classical Arabic meaning of the word rub,

00:14:25--> 00:14:28

it includes a number of words.

00:14:31--> 00:14:49

And a number of the attributes of allows not only one not only load, for example, it means say it It means a lot of B, it means l Kareem as Malik means the the owner, it means the one who supports and nurtures. It means the one who

00:14:51--> 00:14:56

was always there protects all these meanings are found in the wardrobe.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

But the most important meaning of Robbie's the one

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

who sustains the one who gives you the one who gives you food? The one who gives you money?

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

The one who gives your health. All this comes from Rob. And therefore, Rob is a neutral term, Rob online

00:15:17--> 00:15:30

is Rob of the atheist of the agnostic of the Jew of the Christian, of the birds of the fishes is Rob available, makes no distinction in Israel, between a Muslim in fact it gives the Jews more than us.

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

But we are on ungrateful because we know why Allah, Allah gives it to me in this dunya

00:15:46--> 00:15:51

I will translate the word Rob not as load. But translate the word Rob is master.

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

They will come to understand what the rough Bula mean really means.

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

Because, Lord, as

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

you know, when I think of Lord, I think only of two things, the House of Lords in England

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

and Lord of The

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

Lord of the Rings, I can't think of any other way that you use the word Lord

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

is a very old word. For us. It's actually meaningless. It also has the connotation of somebody who sits right up there, you know, and says, You are the you know, coloreds Indians and whites down here, you know,

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

whatever. We are up here and you're down there.

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

So we translate the word Rob as master.

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

And what is the other side of Master?

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

slave

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

so our last longer scribing Chavez

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

I'm praised

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. All praise and thank you to our last panel, Darla.

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

And then along to does Allah make us the slaves?

00:17:09--> 00:17:19

And I think it's important to understand the difference between an app who worship Allah and a slave. What is the difference between a slave and a worshiper?

00:17:21--> 00:17:38

Why does our Why are we the slaves of Allah nada we worship a lot under also what what's the difference? The difference is that worship is done at certain times only. You worship further in the morning, the Juma answer Mallory Basha

00:17:39--> 00:18:12

in between in my work would do something else. But there are specific times xhaka you give once a year have you perform once in a lifetime, all the time by fasting you force only the month of Ramadan that which Allah is imposed upon you. So worship is as this particular job for the Christians I go on a Sunday, the Jews go on a Saturday other people go whenever they want to go along to Baja, no, Tada. We are not worshipping all the time. We're not doing the compulsory worship all the time.

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

So we are not only worshipers

00:18:19--> 00:18:32

are we servants of Allah was not the name of your servant. say we are servants? Are we servants of Allah? Or were the slaves of Allah? What is the origin of servant and the slave at 70? is one who, who serves

00:18:34--> 00:18:51

as an employer employee relationship. I give you my service and what do you give me? You give me money, isn't it? I serve you. I'm an accountant. So I I work with an accountant. And if I work as an accountant, you can't ask me to wash the windows.

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

Go wash the windows.

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

Unless the economists are very bad

00:18:58--> 00:19:10

telega you can count them but I'm afraid enough to wash my car today. That's in the worst kind of economy. But in normal economy, you have a service contract. You have what is called a job description and it's a job description.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

Is there a job description for a slave?

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

No, no job description whatever the Master says do you must do

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

they were the Master says the slavers do the slave master.

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

This is my view of talk about service.

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

And work. I read an article I think last week

00:19:33--> 00:19:41

on the German worth work ethic. I think this is good information for us. German work ethic. The Germans.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

You always hear about the Germans bragging about the engineering

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

isn't a full draft and you know German engineering

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

while the Germans for information I mean now you know I'm sure you know this most hardworking people in the whole world even more hard working than the Japanese

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

In the Chinese, but they really smart people.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

They work as 35 days a week, and they've got the longest holidays in 25 and 60 working days leave per year.

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

When they work, they work. No personal emails are allowed at work.

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

Not because the boss doesn't like it because your co workers don't like.

00:20:24--> 00:20:35

And when you work, you work, for example, if you have a meeting, normally we have meetings, what do we do? We have a warm up session where the chairman makes a speech? No, no, no, what's on the agenda?

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

They start immediately with the agenda.

00:20:40--> 00:20:47

Either the bosses will say to you, I want please Can I have this by three o'clock, I said, No, give it to me by three o'clock in the store.

00:20:49--> 00:21:17

So they're very strict when it comes to very good work ethic, and therefore they're the richest nation in Europe. In fact, they bailed out the whole of Europe. In 2012, when there was, you know, Greece, they bailed out Italy, they bailed out Spain, availa. Portugal to be successful country. Because of the work ethic. They have an Islamic world work ethic. And I told him before they made a survey in the middle east of our friends in the Arab world. And they found out that the average Arab worked only 27 minutes a day.

00:21:23--> 00:21:27

So our input because our input is so little left for the output of

00:21:28--> 00:21:33

the Germans work, they work eight hours a day assume they work seven hours a day, they work eight hours a day.

00:21:35--> 00:21:39

And the government balance is that I mean, if Germany, a woman

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

who gives birth,

00:21:43--> 00:21:55

gets a four year, four years of unpaid leave, he chose to work 30 hours a month, you can do that. Which means that the bottle comes with after four years as to give a job back to her.

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

And she can stretch it till the child goes to school.

00:22:02--> 00:22:20

And the best one of all is that the German parliament is considering as I'm speaking to you to pass a bowl. Listen to this one, that employers cannot send their employees emails concerning work after six o'clock in the afternoon.

00:22:24--> 00:22:48

It was complete separation. When you raise your wrist, when you work you work. What do we do? What's the famous thing that all men do? They bring work home. All the wives complained to me magazine sets in bed with his laptop. What did they do his work? He says, has to finish the work for tomorrow. Germany, no, finish your work and work and you come home and you do your work at home.

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

So

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

so that's a servant, like to serve the security

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

allows Wagner says

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

his Rabbul aalameen.

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

And who is he slaves?

00:23:08--> 00:23:12

A different kind of slave because that is slave now his master know the will of Allah? Yes.

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

Does the slave want to be free?

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

Every slave wants to be free. Do we want to be free?

00:23:21--> 00:23:23

Well, maybe sometimes.

00:23:24--> 00:23:28

And when we say Ramadan, we are slaves. On the day of age we want to be somewhat free.

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

No, we want to be the slaves of Allah. In other words, we voluntarily

00:23:36--> 00:23:48

become slave of Allah subhanaw taala always praise Allah. And always thank our laws. And the more we praise and thank Allah subhanaw taala The more you want to be the slave of Allah was Hannah Who?

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

Allah doesn't enslave as we say,

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

you Allah do we worship? We say that? We say, Oh Allah, you do we worship. So

00:24:03--> 00:24:19

and also a slave is never associated a slave master is never associated with mercy. But allows mahalo tala. He says he's the most merciful. Ar Rahman Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:24:22--> 00:24:39

are Rahmani Raheem. Now Allah describes himself as what we call the beneficence the merciful, you know, we think needs English with so for granted and we transfer them to our children. And I think what is the deficit mean, what is beneficence?

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

Anybody

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

beneficence for me, it's a meaningless term.

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

Just a nice beautiful turning machine of beneficence.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

When you ask somebody what it means no, but what is it what does a man really mean? In simple terms,

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

It means the one who is merciful now

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

the one who is merciful. Now as I'm talking to you,

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

sometimes say, Well, you know, he's a nice guy.

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

You have a fight to somebody and somebody says, I didn't know but he's a nice guy, you know.

00:25:19--> 00:25:20

But he's not a nice guy now.

00:25:22--> 00:25:27

A lot longer, as merciful now, as we sitting here, allows boundless mercy descending upon us.

00:25:28--> 00:25:35

And Rahim there he means, He who is always merciful and will always be merciful.

00:25:38--> 00:25:46

And between these two words, Rahman and Rahim, we will never understand the true mercy of a louse.

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

So we also must us.

00:26:03--> 00:26:09

I have a laptop, I'm the master of my laptop, my laptop breaks, I can do whatever I throw it against the wall, sell it, repair it.

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

If I have a car and the car gives me trouble, I can kick it.

00:26:15--> 00:26:20

Send to the I can do whatever I want with it. If it's a slave, I can sell the slave or whatever I want to do it.

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

But unlike our master and a slave we belong to allows.

00:26:33--> 00:26:38

And we do so many things wrong. The slide does something wrong the master beats him immediately.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

But he measures we've done so by alfombra in silver anyway so many times.

00:26:45--> 00:26:54

What Allah do, does Allah punishes you like to slide mill over 65 years or 70 years. All the things you did you let it slide.

00:26:55--> 00:27:01

You told a lie. There is no Aaron coming out of the storm out of the sky and grabbing your tongue cutting it off.

00:27:02--> 00:27:21

You like today? say maybe I didn't see you know. So, again, do you do it tomorrow? And as we go as we go along, we do things and you say but nothing, nothing's happening. I'm doing all these bad things. Nothing's happening to me. So what do we do? We become braver and braver and braver second guy who skips the red robot.

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

The first time he skips the robot he looks around TVs the cutouts are missing because

00:27:28--> 00:27:38

the second time it goes through doesn't look anymore just drives me crazy becomes rough. And he tells his friend let's you could go through this redraw but without looking at without using speed

00:27:39--> 00:27:41

to become and when he gets caught.

00:27:42--> 00:27:58

He's in shock. What did I do? along to mahalo panelists, everything right as of this on the internet. Why? Because of his mercy, imagine he should punish us for whatever we do every day. So hello. so elated, right?

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

So allowed to have dinner, that is part of our listeners. So he described his mercy on Rahmani Raheem.

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

One of his papers, the next verse would be

00:28:13--> 00:28:20

what is the opposite of mercy? what's on the other end of mercy? This is mercy. On the right, what is on the far left?

00:28:22--> 00:28:26

What do you think punishment? Does allows rather speak about punishment?

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

Allah says molokhia with de Allah says, Maliki Yami. Dean, what does molecule mean mean?

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

What is that concept of knowledge? It means the day when we will appear in front of Allah. Allah father will be the king of that day, he will be the judge of the day.

00:28:46--> 00:28:53

So what does Allah now speak about after speaking about his mess, he speaks about His justice.

00:28:55--> 00:29:00

punishment. Six Apart is justice. So we have mercy

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

Rahmani Raheem,

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

we have molecule we deal with justice

00:29:09--> 00:29:17

in the middle, and we have punishment, right on the other end. So I'm not talking about his mercy. I mean, he talks about his justice.

00:29:19--> 00:29:26

And it's important lesson to learn here, that you should fear our justice more than we fear his punishment.

00:29:29--> 00:29:30

And I'll explain why.

00:29:31--> 00:29:36

Many of us fear the punishment of a lot of them. Who should move here the justice of our last panel?

00:29:37--> 00:29:44

Because Justice avala begins when his mercy ends when his mercy and justice begins. Not his punishment is justice begins.

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

Allows Wagner says from an Akita Bahu be emini

00:29:52--> 00:29:56

for sofa, you have several faceva yesira Allah says,

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

and he was given his book in his

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

Right hand.

00:30:01--> 00:30:06

So some of us in Sharla we pray that we beg allows him to give us all our books in China, right?

00:30:08--> 00:30:08

I mean,

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

but it's not is that not the end of the story if you get your book in here, right? No, no, no, no.

00:30:17--> 00:30:21

Now you have to present the book in front of Allah and the angels.

00:30:24--> 00:30:34

If you present your book and your book was in the right hand allows for some for your house or for herself or your serum, Allah says you will didn't have an easy or that

00:30:37--> 00:30:44

there was a of you are accountants, the different kinds of audit is the quick audit is the 10th of

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

the What do they call that intensive order? There is

00:30:53--> 00:30:59

no accountants. Forensic is a forensic. That's also dude, but we won't go into it.

00:31:05--> 00:31:10

So now you sign in, you get your book in your right and in our stand in front of Alan is now going to ask him

00:31:12--> 00:31:37

So allow them to tell the angel Okay, who is this? Oh, so and so? You got his book in his writing? Yeah. Okay. Start with page one. Okay, script page one. All right. We've read that 234 Okay, skip the first 50 pages. All right. We'll go to the last page. That will be your ASR. You'll have an easier to sell. The owner doesn't know who's the one who gets his his book in his left hand is a bit more trouble. Well, last

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

season the Hadith in

00:31:42--> 00:31:52

Manchuria, yomo chiamata. hydrolock evisa. Salam says the person who is credited on the Day of Judgment he has been destroyed.

00:31:54--> 00:31:59

Personal discretion on the Day of Judgment, so we should ask Allah and Allah please Allah don't question

00:32:00--> 00:32:01

Why not?

00:32:02--> 00:32:10

Because it's like exams you see people are like matric exams. So what are they do the lazy ones they spot I was wondering,

00:32:11--> 00:32:30

you spot you go through all the previous exam papers, say, well, this looks like a nicer right question, you know? And so the six questions in the exam paper, I'm gonna spot six questions. So now you come a new unknown because you've just spotted those equations. Now you come to the exam paper this is oh my golly, I spotted the wrong

00:32:33--> 00:32:40

when you're in trouble, suddenly when you've come to in front of our laws found the law now allow pharmacists to the angels ask him one question.

00:32:42--> 00:32:48

So, when you say well, the reciting the question is not so then you will say to you, what were you doing

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

on such and such a night at such and such a place with such and such a person?

00:32:56--> 00:33:02

Because remember that time you will remember Yeah, I love this. One question is I'm finished. I'm done. It's a similar story.

00:33:04--> 00:33:04

So

00:33:06--> 00:33:16

ask a lot smarter not not to question that you must be given your vocation right then and martial law laws must forgive you before you reach a particular point.

00:33:21--> 00:33:34

And then evisa salaam used to make the Dalai Lama has Ebner seven Yes, JIRA Core allows founder give us a an easy judgement in Sharla. On the deaf piano, we ask Allah, Allah, Allah to give us an easy, easy judgement.

00:33:39--> 00:33:47

The next question, because the next version of the middle as I said, there are three parts of Surah Fatiha, the first three verses ending with molecule redeem

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

no ending with ear canal.

00:33:59--> 00:34:05

Those of us who've been to university know that the university has a certain academic culture when it comes to faith.

00:34:07--> 00:34:13

The academic culture amongst professors, not all of them, the exceptions is that they say well,

00:34:15--> 00:34:18

I believe in God knows I don't believe in God.

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

It's called agnosticism.

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

That's the academic culture. most universities, they feel proud, you know, that. We don't really know we're in between, you know, maybe there's a God maybe there's no God. And those were those who believe. You get told that you have you got a faith bias.

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

Your bias towards faith, shame our our young people today and I always admire young people today you go to UCT you who ever they go and they remain slim. They stand firm. They make the sauce difficult to challenge one of the biggest challenges I think, that our young boys and girls have to go through is to face that kind of challenge.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

The point I wish to make is that if we say we believe,

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

then it's impossible to believe and not to believe in.

00:35:15--> 00:35:18

The two go together we like Buddhism, they don't believe in the after.

00:35:20--> 00:35:31

In Hinduism, they also don't believe in the after they believe you're going to come back as a monkey or their, whatever your personality was, will come back that particular shape and form. But as Muslims,

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

we know that the two are inseparable, and why are they inseparable?

00:35:37--> 00:35:43

Because they are part of the justice of a last panel. We know we live in an unjust world.

00:35:45--> 00:35:46

Very unjust world.

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

The man who worked his own life to good

00:35:51--> 00:36:05

lands up on the galleys is one of the so many people in the world were killed. They were good people. The man was bad. He loves the luxury life. I mean, we have so many of them in South Africa. I don't have to mention names by bad get into trouble.

00:36:08--> 00:36:12

Some people were just suspended because they didn't behave themselves. So

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

not gonna mention.

00:36:16--> 00:36:23

So in a lot of things, so you kill somebody, what do they do to you? If there's a death penalty? They take your life. But what about killing 100 people?

00:36:25--> 00:36:34

Only your life can only be taken once. Then the American President Obama's kill as nominee. Hundreds of 1000s of people have died on each call

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

in Iraq,

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

in Syria, so many parts of the only score.

00:36:44--> 00:36:49

He's in the army. He's responsible. But it seems as if he lives in the White House nothing's happened.

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

We believe and allows for honkala

00:36:58--> 00:37:02

warns us that they will come Maddox govt

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

after the Day of Judgment way.

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

If you killed 100 people, there will be punishment for you for killing 100 people

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

kill one person they will punishment for one person.

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

Justice will be meted out completely and fade.

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

In this world can never happen. Just as a very tricky thing in the world today. We know I mean, we've seen deewani and we've seen

00:37:33--> 00:37:40

Oscar Pretorius we've seen this in tricky business some technicality you get killed somebody technicality

00:37:42--> 00:37:50

I mean, I've been to court so many times when in divorce matters if it's a woman judge who's just been divorced by us But who do you think she's gonna favor?

00:37:51--> 00:37:58

Or a man judge who's just been divorced a terrible divorce by his wife woody What do you think he's gonna do? His end? Is not justice if

00:38:01--> 00:38:16

you have a boss, isn't it? Do you get him you employed? What do you want from the boss more money? You always want more money, more shares more money, more free time less work. What is the boss want to pay you less give you less return? more work?

00:38:17--> 00:38:22

The unions they side was one the labor code will silence this new justice.

00:38:24--> 00:38:50

Government and people the government wants to give you less services you add more services. You say I want to pay less tax government says you will pay more tax who says the military there's no better you have the body and the soul. Allah gave you a body and Allah gave you a soul he's always fighting once is coated you must go early today. No man have your lunch first man oh no the body says you know you hungry man go Never bite first man

00:38:52--> 00:38:59

the rule says get them you know go to the magic your body Oh it's four o'clock in the morning oh man I'm gonna go work you know.

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

Sleep.

00:39:02--> 00:39:05

Since oh is this between body and soul?

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

With the balance, the balance is found in the middle.

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

With the balance in this is the nazira thermostat. Allows vanilla says

00:39:18--> 00:39:53

Allah We ask Allah guidance to what the sirata what is the shirato Mr. P? It is Allah described as as as as own mutton wasa, we are the middle. And that route is the middle road. So what are we asked, we asked our last round right in the middle of Surah Fatiha to bring the balance in our lives. The balance between the body and the soul balance between our work ethic balance between me and my wife, parents between me and environment. So many balances we have to have.

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

So a lot of time to create this balance.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Now we've got the first

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Three, what is the general message of Al hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil alameen or Rahmani Raheem madico mi D,

00:40:11--> 00:40:16

ear canal Buddha. The first three is about knowledge, knowledge about

00:40:18--> 00:40:31

how to thank our last presenter, knowledge allies are up our master do a service, knowledge about the deaf tiama knowledge about the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Then the last verse talks about ear canal.

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

There is action. So first we get all the knowledge, then Allah, Allah says, Now he was worship and asked me for him.

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

That's the first verses that we spoke about. That's knowledge. Then comes the action in the verse on a bird

00:40:48--> 00:41:01

then comes the balance. Oh Allah guide us onto this middle path. Neither more to the left neither moto Moto, if allowed, tells you you must pray five times a day Don't be eager and make seven

00:41:03--> 00:41:13

say well I got time you know it's as now as now as now jumar so I'm going to decide making a couple of more photos off the job because I have the time you can't do that.

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

Follow them which allows positives given

00:41:26--> 00:41:34

and what is the balance now online the last verses talks about the balance between knowledge and action.

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

The radial mount Dubey

00:41:38--> 00:41:42

Allah him radial Mount duby Allah him

00:41:43--> 00:41:48

those who know Allah anger is Allah says I'm angry with you.

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

When

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

when you just have the knowledge and you have no action than a minute

00:41:57--> 00:42:04

in or falling you know that is the balance. You've got the knowledge you know who I am, you know what you have to do in a bada but you don't do it?

00:42:05--> 00:42:05

What are

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

those who have action

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

and no knowledge.

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

You know, as Ali Rahim, Allah used to say,

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

a person

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

who has

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

knowledge

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

and doesn't act upon it,

00:42:31--> 00:42:48

he says cannot be impossible. Leia couldn't align move Billa ammoniacal knowledge without action. Impossible. Then he says, action allameh rubella Island action without knowledge. He says complete madness.

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

Complete craziness.

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

Like a person who

00:42:55--> 00:43:01

does a job and is not qualified to do the job. And he said he says he's a surgeon. And he notices

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

what I'll do the I'll lay him on a dolly.

00:43:07--> 00:43:24

So those who are Darlene are those who just act maybe because they saw somebody else doing so we should make an ask allows families do household that is the only the wire in this hole in the soda. Only time when we ask allies to guide us.

00:43:26--> 00:43:37

Therefore we should make a lot of that kind of guidance. We make a lot of time to guide us to do what to keep the balance in our lives. balance between work and home.

00:43:39--> 00:43:41

You can only do that is wherever the Islamic work ethic.

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

balance between

00:43:46--> 00:43:49

your wife in yourself and your children.

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

The balance between your body

00:43:54--> 00:44:18

and your soul. All these things are to be found the whole complete then we've seen now the complete program of life. The complete philosophy of life is to be found in the Holy Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala later may have lost the love bless all of us where allows found the gift that we are people not only have knowledge also of action, and not only of action, but also knowledge

00:44:20--> 00:44:26

is similar Rahman Rahim Allah in Alexandra Levine Armando Rama salejaw towards

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

Allah tala.
