Salatu Imam to deem from an A comma, a comma Diem woman tarika Fulton hi Dean, oh come upon, and maybe you solo model Allah He was alone.

00:01:09--> 00:01:18

Today inshallah, the topic will be the fruits of submission, submission, of course, to Allah subhanho wa.

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

And I've been giving it a lot of thought, as to

00:01:25--> 00:01:32

how does one prepare oneself spiritually for this particular month of Ramadan?

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

A Ramadan which has never been

00:01:38--> 00:01:49

had any president in our history, it is 300 days in South Africa, we haven't had this. So this is a totally new experience for Muslims in many, many parts of the world.

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

And it means that we were confined to our homes. Our movements are restricted. We cannot go to the massage it.

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

But we as most Muslims believe that this is part of the other of our last panel. This is part of the Canada and the federal laws under what does that mean? It means this is part of our plan. Well, Mercado mokara law. Well, oh, hey, Roma, Corinne say,

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

we plan

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

and Allah plans. And who is the base plan, the best plan is the last panel What are

00:02:28--> 00:02:57

so we need to first accept the fact that this is not from settled Rama poza or from China or wherever it came from. This is part of the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what we need to find out is what is the wisdom behind this plan of allows chronotype? Why did Allah subhanaw taala put us in this position, a choiceless position where we have to be confined to our homes.

00:02:58--> 00:03:08

Voluntary confinement to our homes, and voluntary staying away from places of gathering including the massage of Allah was kind of what

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

now

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

a Muslim believes

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

that everything that happens to him is for the best.

00:03:22--> 00:03:30

Everything. We believe that everything that allows for countless decree for us individually and as a community is for August.

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

So we need to find what that best is in this situation we're in now.

00:03:40--> 00:03:52

So let us let us explore let's go back to our roots, our spiritual roots for us to understand where we are presently. And what our roots our roots are basically

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

maybe two words, maybe three words.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

The first is Islam.

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

What is Islam in

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

Islam means submission.

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

It is the way of submission. So our first

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

requirement

00:04:17--> 00:04:31

in Islam is to submit to Allah Hunter. The second word is Muslim. Muslim is one who submits himself to allows hunter in its entirety.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

And there is tasleem not as named tasleem

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

which means the submission to Allah was Hannah who wattana

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

there is a this the ayah which I quoted in the beginning was an idea. It's called Abu Aslan, which allows Angola said to Nabil musala Sato Viva Hema will Allah say to me

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

Ebrahim Ali says Salaam

00:05:02--> 00:05:20

its color abou slim, Allah city Nabi Brahim submit color Islam Julio Bellamy, and the answer came from W. Brahim as loved to the problem, I submit to the Lord of the Universe, of all of creation.

00:05:23--> 00:06:10

So even here to be asked the question to Allah could confirm, because this is the basis of belief, submission to the unseen, complete and total submission, but I need to add a rider to the submission. And the rod I want to add to the submission is that one cannot have complete submission to Allah subhanaw taala unless you totally believe that allows hardly exists. And everything that exists is because of our last pilot honor. And we are only on one journey. And that journey, whether we are born with we are born this morning, or whether we are 90 years old, we are on the same journey. And that journey is going back to Allah was Hannah Hooper. And if we believe that that is

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

our journey, then you must also believe that there are things waiting for us at the end of that journey

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

in male gender, gender,

00:06:19--> 00:06:29

either gender or gender. And that is these these are, we must believe that this is real, this is the actual reality. So if we go back

00:06:30--> 00:06:36

to our spiritual roots, we realize that we are individuals that have given

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

our pledge to Allah subhanho wa Taala that we will submit entirely our whole beings we will submit to Him.

00:06:50--> 00:07:04

But this kind of consciousness needs an environment, environment in which it can develop, in which you can become aware of your submission and the environment in which you can develop that submission.

00:07:05--> 00:07:25

And I did say that the circumstances in which we find ourselves, this confinement to our homes and not being able to go to the masjid is in fact, Allah has created this environment for us to discover what submission really means. And what the fruits of that submission is.

00:07:29--> 00:07:35

I know there were times before Ramadan when we thought to ourselves, you know, how am I going to manage this?

00:07:36--> 00:08:02

for 3040 2010 years, I've been going to the masjid I've been going at night every night for Tara we I have been going for a little further. I have been spending the last 10 days in Attica in the masjid. I go every night because I meet my friends they I listen to beautiful readings of the Holy Quran. I'm gonna miss all this out, what am I going to do? I'm not going to manage making all this inside my own house.

00:08:03--> 00:08:10

Am I going to miss out on a lot of reward from Allah subhanaw taala. This, the social mixing

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

and all the good things that come from that in the masjid.

00:08:15--> 00:08:29

That's all going to be gone. Now. It's not yet we started Ramadan, without a second thought I recorded it and it is our third. And let's see how we feel about it. And let's see how we should feel about it.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

So let me repeat. I believe Allah has created this environment for us,

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

for everybody in the whole world.

00:08:40--> 00:08:46

And I believe that this environment has been created in order for us

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

to get closer to our laws

00:08:52--> 00:08:59

to get really in touch with a loss. We are far removed from our loss, allowed to do something very drastic

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

to bring us back to our spiritual roots and that is our submission to our last panel. What are we say we love Allah. We say we

00:09:12--> 00:09:25

worship Allah, we say that we make our Quran Allah. But we know that we say we submit ourselves to Him. We give ourselves telling total submission. This is the crux of today's lecture.

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

So I want to say to you that if you listen carefully to what we're going to say today, this Ramadan is going to be the best in sha Allah and the strongest Ramadan that you've ever, ever had. Despite the fact that you cannot go to the masjid despite the fact that you are the home in lockdown. Despite the fact that you you feel disconnected in some ways spiritually from allows hautala from Ramadan because you don't have these facilities at your desk.

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

First, the first thing we need

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

to imbibe to become conscious of is

00:10:09--> 00:10:20

Salim Leela. Salim Lila. First thing we have to do is we have to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we There's our submission line submission lies here.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

This is where our submission lies

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

in our chest in the heart, that is where our submission lies.

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

And that is

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

the organ in the body that we need to get close to.

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

Because Allah subhanaw taala is there in the heart.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

There is this Buddhist

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

chorus as you all know is where the

00:10:53--> 00:11:03

the inspiration of the words came from allows for HANA, tala, and actual words, was given to the

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

inspiration from Allah by the NaVi sola, sola, so equals 32. This this hadith policy allows fatherlessness color law as well.

00:11:15--> 00:11:31

A Los Angeles is my was he any of the Well, last summer he was knocking? Was he Annie? Hulu abdiel suparna la? What a beautiful. Have you put our last webinar says

00:11:32--> 00:11:43

ma? Was he an MD? My Earth one last summer He neither my Earth nor the heavens can contain me. We know that.

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

Unless no place.

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

Else.

00:11:49--> 00:11:50

mean I was

00:11:52--> 00:12:05

listening to the news the other day and they gave up the Hubble telescope is has been up there for quite a number of years. And it's going to be there for another five years. And the scientists were saying that they sent up the Hubble telescope.

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

They had a lot of questions they wanted answered.

00:12:11--> 00:12:16

And there were a lot of questions that they couldn't ask because they didn't know what the questions were in the first place.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

These scientists

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

20 years ago, didn't know

00:12:24--> 00:12:38

the questions to ask. But when algo telesco was in the one of the things they discovered was that the universe was expanding. The Universe was getting bigger. They discovered this only when the Hubble telescope was 20 years ago.

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

And they couldn't find the cause. Why is the universe expanding?

00:12:49--> 00:12:58

And they said there was a there is a force that expands the universe and they call it the dark energy. I think dark energy they call it because we call it a lot.

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

But it is an exact word in the Quran. So hon Allah, an exact word

00:13:07--> 00:13:12

that informs mankind 1400 years ago that the universe is expanding.

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

We needed 400 1400 years of knowledge

00:13:19--> 00:14:02

for the telescope to tell us we couldn't even find for telescope you tell us that this universe is expanding? What does Allah say? What in your own what in? Allah talks about the universe and Allah says in the Quran, we're in now, la musio. When mainly we expand it, we expand, we are the expanders of the universe. So heinola so this artifact elephant Allah tells us that the universe is expanding and it's not a it's not dark energy that is expanding the universe. It is allowed to handle talent is expanding in us. We still don't believe in the currents panel.

00:14:03--> 00:14:10

And I must say many novels are being drawn to the Quran because of these revelations that they now discover

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

has already been around for solo cannot be from anyone else except you created they haven't seen yet.

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

So a lot longer. It's not his policy coming back to a point.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

Allah says

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

the heavens and the earth cannot contain me

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

what I can, but

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

what's the I need?

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

The heart

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

of a true believing seven can contain me.

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

Hello.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

Of course. We need to live another 100 lifetimes to be able to understand the last part of the Hadees that allows fatherlessness but the heart of it

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

70 of mine can contain.

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

It means that

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

a Muslim can have within himself

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

the belief that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the creator of the universe can only be in his heart

00:15:21--> 00:15:33

and only his heart can submit, because of the knowledge that he has, can submit completely to the worship and remembrance of Allah was carnal.

00:15:36--> 00:15:36

So that is number one.

00:15:38--> 00:15:49

So what is submission mean? submission means to have the following conversation with Alana talk about it as I go along. first conversation is Yup. Oh my Lord, I know all the time.

00:15:50--> 00:16:05

But you say y'all are I'm happy with you. I'm very satisfied with you that my Lord, I'm very satisfied what you gave me. I'm very satisfied where I am. I'm very satisfied in having decreed for me to stay at my home because this is your decree? This is what you want.

00:16:07--> 00:16:14

Because otherwise, we have to say, Well, you know, this is this Rama poza has put us in our homes No.

00:16:16--> 00:16:22

The one who created this universe, what's the plan for the universe we just carry out the plan of Allah was fine. So

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

part of our spiritual preparation for Ramadan is to have a conversation with ourselves and say,

00:16:32--> 00:16:41

I make tasleem to Allah, Islam to sw brimsek Aslam to the Arab belagavi. I submit myself to the Lord of the universe.

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

And I say to Allah, Angela, Europe, you've chosen this for me.

00:16:50--> 00:17:01

And I know it's favorable to me because you choose everything. For me that is favorable to me. And I want y'all to continue to choose for me what is favorable to me.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

And you say to allows

00:17:04--> 00:17:20

y'all a second thing, ingredient of submission is that I'm satisfied with your decree with the ATO, I'm happy, I'm ecstatic about this new environment that you've created for me.

00:17:23--> 00:17:33

And I can assure you that when you accept this, except Crowley and Grambling of Arizona goes to the how we, you know, maybe let's just go and invade, please don't do that.

00:17:36--> 00:17:42

Because the plan of all lays internationally, the massage should be closed, even the heart remains closed.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

So,

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

if we

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

have the submission, with you know,

00:17:56--> 00:18:08

in a province in the inside of us, now I know this is from Allah, it's good for me, I must find out what is so good, I must find out what the Hikmah is, what the

00:18:10--> 00:18:14

wisdom is, of this decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

And then what we will what will we find? We will find in Sharla, that this Ramadan will be fantastic Ramadan,

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

from all the Ramadan that we've had, from all the Ramadan, that our fathers and their forefathers.

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

This is not about Allah's cross with us and all that angry with us and therefore our loss, Mandela keeps us away from his massage.

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

That's the negative part of it.

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

But it's always everything which is positive.

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

Allah says, I mean, in the Umrah kulu

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

Allah, the Prophet sallallahu sahadi prophet SAW Selim says, I've given every moment

00:18:58--> 00:19:04

I wonder at the face of the believers of the believer, because all is a phaser good.

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

In

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

every matter of a believer is that it is good. It may not start at good eventually, in good everything. When something touches him, which is not good.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

He says

00:19:23--> 00:19:49

Saba, yes, patience. And when Allah says doing something, which is good, he says Alhamdulillah so everything that comes to Muslim is good. No matter what it is, you lose your job. Finally, maybe in five years time, you'll realize well that's a good thing that happened to me Actually, you lost your home. You find out later but actually that was the best thing sometimes. So the good thing that happened to me change my life for the better.

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

So

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

it begins with you trying to enjoy this Ramadan. It begins with submission.

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

You say to Allah Yara, I'm a yo command. I'm your servant. I'm your slave. I'm mature. Come on, you've decided this for me. I'm happy with it. I'm gonna go with it. Go with the flow. Let's see what happens.

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

So

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

everybody's in lockdown.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

lockdown, stay at home.

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

Do you know that the Navy Sallam told us about

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

the benefits of lockdown?

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

There is a sound up by a banana

00:20:36--> 00:20:45

or the lottoland you see is Paul tiara Salama? He says, I say to the Messenger of Allah, O Messenger of Allah. Mama Naja.

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

What is salvation?

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

You know what salvation is salvation is

00:20:52--> 00:20:58

to be given the green light to intergender on the deaf piano that is salvation saved from the fire channel.

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

So, have you wanted to know how can I achieve this salvation in the US?

00:21:10--> 00:21:24

He obviously wasn't asking about a murder. He wasn't off because he knew Salah is your salvation. Lusaka is part of your salvation. He wanted something more than that. And the Prophet said three things to him.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

Call them Salaam said I'm sick alayka dishonor

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

you want to

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

control your tongue.

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

Resting control you

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

now I say to you when you're locked up in your house no friends come and visit

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

your loved alone with yourself Your wife is they

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

don't speak much.

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

You don't say much

00:21:58--> 00:22:05

but if you're out there in the world even it's Ramadan out of Ramadan there's a lot to be said a lot of things what says Ibiza Salaam says

00:22:07--> 00:22:11

hello allows I'm gonna say I'm giving you Muslims a chance now to practice

00:22:12--> 00:22:28

the advice that might not be so self gives to you control your time, I'm not gonna put you into a situation where you just control local naturally you control the number one what first item of salvation, then then at least a certain number to one yes, I can eat.

00:22:29--> 00:22:41

And so Sam says keep to your home. supanova keep to your home, spend most of your time at home, if you want to have salvation.

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

And we can now see are staying Adobe's part of our salvation. So panula

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

when it comes time

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

we

00:22:57--> 00:23:08

think about Allah we read really the or odd we listen to lectures, so many things we do. And the third thing The Prophet said to him what care Allah hottie attic,

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

cry over your sins that you have committed.

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

You know, it's difficult to cry, we never ate our job and you still working in Ramadan.

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

Now you have time to think about your sins, you sit at home and you think

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

what have I done with my life? How can I change my life? Let me say certain cc thing.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

Look after your time. Number two,

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

stay at home. Number three,

00:23:39--> 00:23:43

cryo since stergiou is the operative one that we produce.

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

So this

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

just staying at home is part of your salvation in the

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

evening, did we could we ever have thought that that the Prophet would actually say that, that your salvation part of his relation is

00:24:04--> 00:24:08

part of your agenda. In other words they can know is part of your agenda. Part of your agenda.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

has had a diary dated narrated by Mr. Timothy.

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

The second one I want to relate to you is

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

one narrated by Abu Seidel who de la jolla lands with the prophets of Salaam said the US by Adam, for in other cola to Kofi, listen.

00:24:31--> 00:24:37

Let me say something said when a person wakes up in the morning, then all his bodily limbs.

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

They humble themselves in front of him.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

You get up in the morning all your lungs humbled themselves in front of you.

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

First of all, what do they say to you? They say to a Filipina

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

they say to you your limbs at your arms, your ankles and your nose, your ears.

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

Your feet everything says to you, Fear Allah for our sake

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

This is see all of our sick

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

for a minute

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

because we are you

00:25:16--> 00:25:22

we are with you we are part of you, we are you. So we are pleading to you.

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

Famous famous, the counter is the commoner

00:25:29--> 00:25:33

if you walk the same path they say to you, we are on the straight path

00:25:35--> 00:25:46

why now our judged our judge down and if you are crooked and if you are dishonest and if you do wrong things

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

we will be punished with you please save us from punishment that's

00:25:53--> 00:25:56

what a better place to be than to keep yourself at all.

00:25:59--> 00:26:10

So you don't go anywhere we shouldn't go Don't say anything and you shouldn't do you learn to say God hamdulillah my boss, my owner, my body I've been mark the person that I'm that I am.

00:26:12--> 00:26:15

Is it oh you can't you can't do much and he can do much better.

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

So we see another

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

beauty and the wisdom of this lockdown that we are in.

00:26:24--> 00:26:31

Again what is the meaning of of submission of tasleem to allows final tala it means

00:26:32--> 00:26:43

you are content with a decree of Allah. Then you can see now why should be contained. Because all this is good. All goodness. I think he's in your disfavor. And

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

submission means to follow the world of allows

00:26:49--> 00:27:04

to follow the will of a loss apprentice. Number three's submission is to submit to Allah means to confer conform to the design and the intention of the Allies for you shall live Is this the intention you have for me?

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

Mashallah, what a beautiful international life first.

00:27:12--> 00:27:19

But the most important lesson was learned in this lockdown is I would like to hit

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

and double. When I say moto Honda and Toyota

00:27:28--> 00:27:37

in this lockdown, this Ramadan, worship Allah, He wants you to worship Him.

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

Worship Allah as he loves you to worship, not the way you love to worship you.

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

worship him the way he loves you to worship you.

00:27:49--> 00:28:07

Not the way you want to worship him. What does that mean? A lot of smiling. Satan says no one would me welcome his Salah politically. Allah says, worship Me and establish the salah for my remembrance

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

for my remembrance, word worship.

00:28:12--> 00:28:21

Allah says establish a Salafi moment what is the foundational item of worship on our menu, the Salah

00:28:22--> 00:28:40

we now know with being adopted as a Salah everything revolves around Salah now it's fragile. Then it's door then it's also there is valid then it's Asher. And we think about the next walk all the time all the time. When is it going to be and we prepare ourselves

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

you know people say

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

I was going to tell you about the forecast before lower in the forecast after lower in the forecast before answer and then somebody says yeah, we know but we busy you know we do so many things especially the ladies that cooking and this and I say you know

00:28:59--> 00:29:07

I'm like you also say you know forecast before us and it was like taraweeh you know and we all now and you know we have to feel tired

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

but I've discovered

00:29:13--> 00:29:20

that is what shaytan tells you. So what you do is you're free to do whatever you you hurry the Salah johari Vitara we attack

00:29:22--> 00:29:42

I want to give you a little bit of advice, which I have implemented in my Salah is the moment you think that you slow down the moment you think that I'm gonna go fast remember the cheetah? immediately what do you do? You start slow down your solar panel. When you slow down your side you feel more energetic?

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

Because Where is your connection now you are now more in the

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

company of Allah subhanho wa Taala 10 year old company. Could you do it slowly with the factory has lower, make the ruku slower, make the students slower and you'll find that you won't get so tired

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

As you normally do

00:30:02--> 00:30:09

so worship Allah as he wants you to worship in accordance with the Sunnah of Mohammed, Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

Maybe we can learn that also in Ramadan, how the Prophet worship allows

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

and what the Prophet did in the month of Ramadan.

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

So,

00:30:23--> 00:30:34

you say eventually you say to Allah Yara, I accept this way I'm pleased this way. I'm happy to be I love you. And I'm happy to worship You, Allah.

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

And Allah if you have chosen this way for me.

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

After 50 years, 60 years,

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

I say to Alhamdulillah and I say Islam to the Arab village, I submit myself to you, Allah.

00:30:54--> 00:30:58

Listen to this beautiful Tafseer of this. I have

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

to emphasize this

00:31:02--> 00:31:06

point of submit yourself. Give yourself to Allah

00:31:08--> 00:31:24

Surah Baqarah 184 we all know this it allows for unlimited lilla he Murphy Samoa Joe Murphy. Oh, we're individuel Murphy and fisico to fool you has he become the healer?

00:31:25--> 00:31:37

What does it mean? To Allah belongs what is in the heavens and the earth? We're in to do mafia and physical and even if you show what is in your hearts

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

or you can see what is in your heart.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

Allah will call you to account for it

00:31:49--> 00:32:01

as a hobby What is he doing? soluna really he's looking at furniture so what is dp not maybe there's some wrong things that we've put down Down at the bottom of the heart

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

so I'm not going to punish us for that.

00:32:07--> 00:32:10

And the Prophet answer the prophets of Salaam said to them

00:32:14--> 00:32:21

are you saying send the prophet to them said Nana wa so you know are you saying to Allah we Yeah, and we disobey

00:32:23--> 00:32:27

Allah, Israel as the band was rated the Jews and the Christians

00:32:30--> 00:32:33

Yeah, we are. We listened but you know, we disobey.

00:32:35--> 00:32:43

Visa Salaam said, say Santa Ana, what a foreigner. We hear and we obey.

00:32:45--> 00:32:53

So all of them said together, Santa Ana altana fraud nakara banner. What a currency.

00:32:54--> 00:33:02

Oh Allah Yeah. And we obey, forgive us, our Lord, for we know that our return is to you.

00:33:05--> 00:33:21

What came immediately after the moment they submitted the more they said these words of submission. We listen and we obey and forgive us era. And we are returning to you What happened? Allah revealed to us law you can before law who knows and it allows

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

la casa de

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

la casa

00:33:27--> 00:33:34

de la serrana said, Don't worry, I will not put a burden who knew more than you can be? I would only

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

keep a count for that which you did.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

That's what you actually did. That was in your hearts.

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

So

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

what is in your heart that remains you between you and Allah?

00:33:57--> 00:34:04

So the moment they said the moment they made test lean to Allah the moment they said Bandha wa Tada. we endure

00:34:06--> 00:34:14

the relief in the east came from Allah immediately. So when we say Allah we are happy with the situation, a little bit of relief, a little bit and easy now lives.

00:34:16--> 00:34:20

So we need to submit our last 100 contentment for the last panel.

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

This brings me to the next very important point. The second important point in this lecture is

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

when jabril came to the profit and set by him as a man and taba was sitting he asked him a few questions. One of the questions he asked the Prophet was what is x and what is

00:34:39--> 00:34:51

sn? What is goodness? yield goodness the prophet and dab with Allah and Nikita Rafa in lambda kuntala for in Iraq, property jabril said

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

goodness is to worship Allah as you can see him.

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

And this is what should happen in Ramallah when you stop

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

We're just after our last one, where you make your worship of Allah, Allah, you're either the vicar Allah that you make in Salah, your Salah, you should think that you can actually see a loss.

00:35:17--> 00:35:27

We know we can't see a loss, but we can feel a loss. We can feel that in his in his faces, particularly when we can we concentrate on ourselves.

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

Can we

00:35:37--> 00:35:44

submit to Allah also understand the Hikmah? Because I've we talking about submission, but what is the wisdom

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

of this submission

00:35:48--> 00:35:58

of this test leap? This lockdown, not being able to go to the magic is a special wisdom in this. Yes, there is. What is the list of Listen to this.

00:36:01--> 00:36:05

It may be that the wisdom of lockdown is and not going to the best cities

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

is to return

00:36:12--> 00:36:15

to experience our connection with the last panel.

00:36:16--> 00:36:20

Now you may say well, we've heard that before. Let me continue.

00:36:22--> 00:36:26

Let us reconnect with Allah subhanho wa Taala with out

00:36:28--> 00:36:28

without

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

any outside interference.

00:36:34--> 00:36:49

And to without any distractions. Allah created this environment, I am going to bring you closer to me and allow you to put any distractions in your way. And I'm not going to put any I'm going to make it compulsory for you. You can't even go to my messaging.

00:36:51--> 00:37:33

I want to take all the sessions, your friends, you meet in the masjid, the beautiful voice of the Quran you in the masjid, the Jamaat you pray within the budget, your it calf in the masjid, your your ethic of lack of other take all these things away from because I want you to understand what submission really means and what this lockdown is going to be for you. So now you have no distractions. And I can tell you personally that my concentration in Salah has increased phenomenally with no distractions. Don't come to the masjid, you have to find a parking, then you come inside you greet everybody, then you stand behind the mom and mixed around.

00:37:35--> 00:37:45

And it gets hot in the budget and that disturbs you, and you get tied in the mud and that disturbs you and you think about home and the food I don't mean the food is it on the table next to you when you make some

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

but you don't rush for the food Rica.

00:37:52--> 00:38:05

So Allah subhanaw taala takes away the message or takes away the beautiful sound of the Quran. Allah takes all that away and allows while the law says I'm going to take all the distractions away from you, so you can feel my presence.

00:38:09--> 00:38:12

And this is the strongest way

00:38:13--> 00:38:18

to enter the month of Ramadan to know this before the month of Ramadan.

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

So

00:38:22--> 00:38:35

if you understand that a connection with Allah, Allah, Allah created for us no distractions, of course you're going to go back to the masjid. But when we go back to the masjid now after the lockdown it'll be completely different.

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

You will be making a salad from inside not from outside.

00:38:43--> 00:39:12

Now you will go to the magic and you go to the magic because you want to go to the magic me not because it's a betrayal for you to have got my father into the magic five times a day I've been going for so long. No, no, no, no. Suddenly we're away from the budget. Now you're going out of your own self. Now you're going to appreciate the machine. Now you're going to appreciate 3d. Now you're going to appreciate now you can ask yourself how is Attica Attica let me go for a decaf next inshallah didn't like my near to go for the governance team

00:39:14--> 00:39:22

so all these years allows for handled you want we wanted this we want to have no discretion No sir we wanted all this.

00:39:23--> 00:39:44

Now let's give it to us. Here it is. It's like being in Makkah in the Hara. Notice directions. People go to Makkah to for peace. They say they get peace. Notice sections just eat and salah and eat and Salah. This is what we have a lot with my karate knows that it knows

00:39:46--> 00:39:55

nobody's disturbing you. nobody's saying anything to you in the magic as you go wherever you go. Just you. So

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

the core of all this is the realization

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

That our Salah is the center of our lives.

00:40:06--> 00:40:14

Athena Salah politically Allah says established prayer. So one of the things we can do for Allah in the month of Ramadan

00:40:17--> 00:40:25

to show that we love Allah subhanaw taala into the show a lot harder than we appreciate this gift of lockdown that is given to us

00:40:26--> 00:40:37

by going through your whole solo word for word and find out from someone who's knowledgeable. Am I saying this correctly?

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

Am I saying this correctly?

00:40:40--> 00:40:44

Am I saying this ridiculous? I mean, I just want to give you an example.

00:40:50--> 00:40:54

After the Salah was asked a philosopher philology

00:40:55--> 00:40:58

at alaba Rahim we say Oh ALLAH

00:41:00--> 00:41:01

forgive me Forgive me.

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

At the lava him

00:41:05--> 00:41:09

the one who forgives The one who is most merciful.

00:41:18--> 00:41:21

When I look at Oh button will not fit better.

00:41:25--> 00:41:29

And we ask for Toba and for forgiveness.

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

Now the last part of this

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

we asked who we asked Allah we asked you ness, wellness aloo capto button.

00:41:46--> 00:41:48

Very people now say in the Who?

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

Hoo ato.

00:41:53--> 00:41:58

We say Oh Allah we ask you, but then we change you to a him.

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

We asked him

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

It should be in a cup

00:42:06--> 00:42:09

and turtle that we're in now who What?

00:42:12--> 00:42:52

I'm just making a way that there is a mistake that one can make and you should look at that mistake. And you should turn correct that mistake. So what I'm saying to you is the guilt, your gratefulness while law should involve you going through your cause it's very important that you key to paradise. If that key doesn't fit, it won't fit then it will go inside. So we have this opportunity now Don't be shy. Ask somebody okay don't have a good book or go on the internet and Google Scholar and ask and look at all the the the things you have to say in the salon and time and time to correct it. Because in many subtle mistakes that people make because they don't understand the Arabic language

00:42:52--> 00:42:57

and I pick it up because I hear them saying it and you hear them saying it not correctly and

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

we need to strive for perfection in the summer.

00:43:03--> 00:43:08

So we are last month in Sharla give us the trophy and the inspiration

00:43:10--> 00:43:34

to submit the first thing you have to submit yourself you have to completely submit yourself to Allah don't like sit overs, whatever comes with like a Corona Corona whatever happens to me that is you that has decreed this then you will enjoy this gift which allows hunter let's give it to us. Now last one, the grant inshallah is really closer to our last fountain that we clean this art

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

and reflect on the Hadith codici which I said to you and that we

00:43:41--> 00:43:55

when we stand in Salah we enjoy the Salah you know I always tell this story. I know it's a bit long today. But I was a man in in Pretoria for a very short period of time

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

in the Central Market in the city tourism

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

and

00:44:03--> 00:44:24

every door after Salah you know the man turns around and he sits in the metal rod and he makes his car and they those people they will hanafy so they don't sit they get up and they make the sooner Salah so I get a chance to look at everybody in the masjid and there was one particular gentleman told him a very nice big beard Mashallah.

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

And he attracted my attention while he was making Salah.

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

He was smiling in his Salah. You had an excella with a smile on his face. He was standing like this

00:44:39--> 00:44:40

standing but smiling.

00:44:43--> 00:44:51

First day I thought maybe you know it's got a window maybe you know something good happen to second day. I look again at you smiling my third experiment.

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

So I asked I thought maybe maybe you know, something wrong with him. So ask

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

somebody you know who said gentlemen you know he's a he's an engineer or

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

an engineer

00:45:07--> 00:45:10

so that settled it so it wasn't because there was something wrong with him

00:45:12--> 00:45:20

and I said to myself look at that this man is standing in front of a law not the way we sang on Viola

00:45:22--> 00:45:22

know

00:45:24--> 00:45:29

the slight smile on his face but shouldn't maybe that must be the way and I tried that

00:45:30--> 00:45:40

I'm still trying that you know what happens when you try that become completely conscious of your Salah completely conscious with the loss control with a smile has to be kept

00:45:42--> 00:45:49

and the why you in a less presence and you keep that smile You have to think about a lot stronger.

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

So maybe that is

00:45:55--> 00:46:11

a lesson Listen, we can learn a lot from the guidance inshallah Allah blesses, May Allah give us good Ramadan. Allah make this our model as I've explained to you today, and may we be happy and submit to the world of allowes Parliament Allah Allah Allah Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:46:20--> 00:46:20

That's me.
