Melissa Nia Colusa Coolock a lovely to be back is one thing I want to start saying by the hadith of rasa they sought for some I've been living with it for 10 days near Matan monk guna and if he him up no Adam, of Soeharto for all those two blessings the human being does not do know
their value to us haha to overall health and free time.
And unless you get sick as much as I did, what Allah Al Hamdulillah mean, then you don't know what it means to be healthy. Literally to be healthy just to be able to sleep well. It's fun a lot sleep work to drink water, you know to eat, you're hungry, but you can't. And your stomach is hurting on all these that we don't even think of it. So always be grateful. Glacia curto. Let's see then. All the income for tominaga vilasa de sol Hamdulillah. blasphemy, Allah subhanaw taala blessed me with health again. And here I am with you back again. hamdulillah in this beautiful place. May Allah subhanaw taala accept from us. So it's going to be a little bit tight in the next couple of weeks
just because of the time between MacGruber Nasha. We actually we have to finish by 745 latest. So I decided to cover only the only four or five iPads which is the idea of the spider. And actually I even have a I hope we can do that. Help Kareem as he she doesn't disappear on me. So I can put the the video so let me just recap because it's been two weeks, so Surah Tonka booth, and by now I think everybody have memorized it is the sort of
test. You see spider, a spider web, you hear the word spider, then you're gonna say okay, test. And it's the first thing in this chapter, Allah said a statement. And there's a lot of statements in the Quran statement in the Quran, meaning it will never change. Do you think you will be left to say we believe and you're not going to be tested SubhanAllah. And the test, as we have said, and I'm going to keep repeating it is you are tested with health and with sickness, with money with poverty, you're tested with ease, and you're tested with difficulty it tests is not only what I don't like, so I pass my exam and I get to the college I want. That's a test. I'm happy, but I'm tested. And
then I don't get the what I want. And I'm sad, I'm tested the same. When I know this, for fact, my life would be much easier. I will never complain.
Right? Because when I am given I don't think I am being tested. I'm happy. Well guess what? You're absolutely I am tested. So that's the first one. Then Allah subhanaw taala took us through what kind of tests we go through. And number one test is
you forgot it's only two weeks. First test is me.
Woman Tjahaja in a minute. Yeah, he did enough say
the first thing is me doing the right thing. Doing what I know it is right. But I don't like it. Or it's difficult, or I'm the only one. Nobody else does it. You know, again, remember we talked about this jihad, the struggle inside me don't do it yet, do it don't say. And then we start justifying. So the first test is me. And the first person I need to work on before you think of anybody else is me, is me. We all think of our children whose spouses who friends who you're worried about everybody, worry about yourself
and judge yourself before you judge anybody. So that's one then Allah subhanaw taala took us to the next common tests which are family, immediate family, so you know his child,
second family, so even Abraham, his people, community friends, and then law then take us through what kind of a test not who we will be testing or will be tested with what kind of a test not believing and this is becoming so common Subhanallah since I started sorted ankle boot, and I do my Tuesday, office hours, very unlikely I don't get the same what I'm going to talk about Subhan Allah Subhanallah children is the biggest test.
Any 50% If not more of the mothers that I talked to, or they call me or they email me is about children.
And it's sometimes very painful. Sometimes it's it's okay, but it's not what the parents want. So it's children. Immediately I say Satan and
Satan and what and his name was here and here. He was not mentioned about family or or sons rather
Time, time we say on your law, when is this going to end? Five years? 10 years? I've been married for 30 years and it's complete misery. When is this going to end? 950 years for Allah only? Every time I read this and I was like, what did we do for Allah? Honestly, all of us, everybody that was on online also what did we do for Allah? 950 years?
What did we give up for Allah? And 950 years? Then say neighbor on
the mountain and icon, the solid mountain nothing moves him nothing changes to him whether it's his son slaughter slaughter, whether it is your wife leave your wife in the middle of the desert leave your wife in the middle of the desert reads the that's why we're able MBR is the father of all the profits because you tested hard. And then his people and the people not only more cool talk about you or call you names and everything now Heroku have to kill him or burn him severely. Then his nephew, that test signal, which we talked about it last time, this time is your morality is going to be tested.
Is your morality are the only one you are the only one and many of us in this room are the only ones you're the only one look like this. You're the only one you dressed like this. You're the only one who doesn't do this. Everybody else does it. That side note, ma'am and Mr. Wheeler colleague, very few same thing was saying no very few amount didn't have he Aveda Batum and then was the only one house was sued from the whole town of fluid one.
And then we all feel what we come only one Imam. That's where Allah brought all these examples and he repeats them and every time in a way so now you come to your morals everybody lies well then don't lie on cue.
Everybody does this. Allah said don't do it. Don't do it.
To stay strong to be the only one it's not easy, easy said but it's not easy. But the moment I decide I want to be the different one. The one that pleases Allah Allah who would give you the strength
but when I am you know who we are? When they yes who the other day I'm here in the masjid I am and then I go out I am and Allah says fine when you're in the masjid you're okay when you go out
do it. So look at all these prophets and then in Lanka Bucha is very interesting some of the prophets only names are some long story
that test he went to through you're going through or you want to throw
nothing that's magnitude because we are not profits but each one of us has one or two or all of them
tested with your morality tested with your children tested with your community tested with your knowledge tested with lack of knowledge everybody but some will feel more connected because it's it's more closer and some are a little bit further then Allah subhanaw taala after what we talked about last time and say the Lord he comes into just mentioning names and that's one of the beauties of the Quran and the miracles of the Quran. You wonder why say you'd know who would name and people will find actually his name is not as people have ad was only mentioned and sorted uncovered there is no detail does not even say you know whose name same thing with Meridian and same thing imagine
his name Syedna sure I was mentioned but the same thing with Salah His name is not there then with a mood and then with Hamid wakatobi and then a common misogyny him pay attention to this Why don't with a mood. These are people before us. So what do I need to know okay, this isn't a strict or does doesn't apply to me right law wakatobi Ian and ACOEM Mimosa Kenny him
it is being so clear to you from their homes. Why their homes.
When you read ask yourself why Holmes in our denture mode, and there is no homes in the world.
You all read Quran, right? You all have read Quran I'm 100% Sure. And you all know the story of God. Yes, anybody doesn't know show me hands. anybody doesn't know the story of Sun Moon.
Wind homes are here.
I love how you are loved
Don't get me as like I'm speaking French today while I am speaking Arabic in English
I can't hear you I'm sorry.
So what did they do? How many of you have been to Petra?
Now now they are talking now pay travel travel now I know
right exactly then he told me in LG Valley Bucha their might their test.
Their test is not people
they were tested is not people is not family living Allah didn't say that. Their test is their power.
And it's very clear and solid to show at all when Allah talk to AD and he's talking to them, literally looking down at them at habenula equilibria in Iet and Tabitha
what's an h1? MNL Giovanni Wu Tang, La Quinta, hello doom. You basically this is all Allah says, You compete and building tall buildings, you think you will live forever.
And that's why Allah says, look at their homes.
That test is the power here. And he thought he is going to talk for powers only names because he talked about AD and he talked about the mood followed by a rune and followed by frown only by names. What are the four common things between these people? When you read the Quran when we say understand the Quran, you need to ask yourself your Allah What are you teaching me you put them together? But he didn't tell me the story. You told me the story of Satan Abraham two pages, half a page even more the story of fluid why? Because there's only one message you
don't get lewd and deluded by Your power and wealth.
Because he said wakatobi another common misogyny when you go and visit Petra What do you see? The verse of the Quran comes to you then hey tune energy Valley Butan and you are far ahead and you call from the mountains, luxury homes. You have seen it all right. And if you haven't just go and google it picture will come right away. What did the homes did to them?
What did the homes did to them?
That's the question we have to ask ourselves, what did the power and the might did to them? What did what did it do? I want to hear it? Nothing.
Nothing? When the might of Allah came Now follow me with the verses when the might of Allah came in it did nothing to them because he said the paladin with a muda wakatobi and alchemy Masakan him if seen their homes and power? Was the he ended up almost straight on
and shaitan beautify to them what they do.
Does he do this to us?
In which way
in which way Shavonne beautify my job, what I'm doing, not my job, my career, what I'm doing, how does he beautify it?
Number one, it has to be something I am going to do to obey Allah and he is going to change my mind or it is something not pleasing to Allah and he is going to change my mind. But how he will change my mind this is what he was a year and then a home chef on your arm Allah who is going to beautify to me. What?
That disobedience He will justify if you will put it here and I hear it. And sometimes people act like shaitan they are not but act like what is the big deal. Don't do it. It's okay. What did you do?
Was a unit a homie shaitan? Well, I'm gonna look at the next one. What can always stop serene? They were knowledgeable. They know it. I know the Quran. I know what Allah told me. Again, every verse is me here now.
But I don't do it. Why?
I don't want to be different. It's a test. I love it. I want to be like my everybody else. It's my parents. It's my family. The same tests in the beginning. Then he goes what Corona? Wha wha no Corona with Iran. The three people of power and money.
Hammer our own with Iran. They had money and not money, money. We talked about millions. You talk about millions here million dollar homes who for two 50 million buildings homes are all the keys of the treasure another treasure the keys of the treasure.
Very powerful man couldn't carry it how much he had.
And Moses came to him to them only the name here is not the story. It's not the detail of the story is the essence of the story.
Walmart can also be a pain and they will never run out, run away or they missed the punch.
But they did not miss the punishment Wallahi what I saw and again in this earthquake, it really we need to wake up my beautiful sisters. In a second everything gone, except the Masjid.
Only the only the minor to actually the masjid was also half gone. But it's only only the manor 150 family in that village 100 family disappeared.
Walmart can who saw the thing and they were not saved their power. They didn't save them their money didn't save them. All this are you all with me. And then Allah goes there and gives you the punishment one by one, according to what he mentioned.
One of the key verses in Surah today uncovered, I want you all to memorize it, we're coolin hudna with them
and we all punish them because of their sins.
Now, I'm not trying to scare anyone, but I'm not talking about your sins, I'm talking about mine.
Each one of us, you need to know this. For fact, when I disobey Allah subhanaw taala according to what I do and who I am and where I am with Allah, I am going to pay the price for it. Because he says coolant meaning every one I mentioned before, from the people of Ibrahim to the people of New Zealand and to the people of our dental mood and all this reason, but then he gives you one by one. Look at the punishment. Learn this.
Every punishment is equal to the sin is parable to the sin.
Every punishment is parable to the sin.
For example, our own our own very rich and arrogant. Not only rich but arrogant. What was the punishment?
The earth swallowed him opposite. He was working. Everybody looks at him think of this when you see someone very rich here these days. They have this and they have that and they come out or she comes out and dressed whatever and right. This is exactly how he Kohala call me he's in it. This isn't sort of puzzles. He comes out with all his intros and all his luxury and people says well
later anomic llama ot apparel. We wish we have what's our own hat immediately Bahasa snobby he will be down the hill. He and his home he and his money he and his power
let's not be arrogant. Let's not think it's not me it's not gonna happen to me, anybody. So our own theater our own as of now we have
all of this now come to the
the center of Surah to Lanka Bucha methyl Latina Taha, the woman Daniela here Alia Katharina Anka booty Taha that beta waiting on and while you're at the Bay to Lanka boot your canary Allah mu, you really need to look at this one by one method is a parable.
Parables are very common in the Quran.
The the P This was actually, as we said, Lancom Booth was Makia. It's a verse chapter that was revealed in MCC, it was Centura Swati Sato Sinha and they said, Oh, the
the lord of Muhammad mentioned and they were mocking spider and bugs.
Right? What in Hola, hola, estephe al river methyl Amba by all the time from Africa, he responded to them. And they said oh, the Lord of Muhammad talks about his spider.
You know, I was like your dean, do this and do that. It's the same we're going through the same what we're doing but we are facing it in a different way. mocking people mock the Dean mock the religion mock what Allah says, Everybody according to what is important for them. So Allah says, okay,
Massaro Latina Tohoku Masaru the parable Alladhina people it's a hurdle they took when Dooney law other than Allah Alia allies.
So this is people.
First question when you see people in the Quran, first question you ask yourself, don't think of anybody else. The question is,
is this is me?
Is this is me.
And that is the quote unquote, second, don't praise yourself and don't say I am perfect. Nobody is perfect.
And he says methodology I mean, do Neela here Alia allies.
So next question, when you read, you're going to say do I have allies in my life?
Do I really depend on this and that yes or no?
Yes or no?
Let's say who are the
categories? Don't tell me people categories. Who do we think we are so strong because
who am I?
Was my family
was my husband right? What is my wealth? Which country I come from these days even accent no accent
right was my friends I'm very connected what's my job?
The youth which school you go everybody talks about Ivy League schools right? I will Yeah.
Why those are allies that's the question for everybody. Why Allah who is the word Willie? You know what's when he when he is the person who gives you for marriage? That Willie is the one that you depend on? That you absolutely trust he or she will take care of your affairs?
Which one I take as a Willie
How do I know I take this or that Willie. You are looking at me today as if you've never read this surah
right. It's okay. I'm glad I'm doing it right.
When do I brag about something
and I look down at someone because I have something they don't have
think of it I have children she doesn't Oh, she's divorced I'm married. Oh I live in whatever neighborhood My home is whatever. Oh this is how I look this all I think it's making me what
strong better now Now pay attention where the uncovered is gonna come Okay, so each one of us here could be one could be two could be five Allah knows everybody knows including background including which country I come from including what color my eyes is all this kind of we don't see it
but we act by it
you know what? When you sit upstairs especially in Ramadan and this is one of the lessons I learned the first lessons I learned from one of my teachers when I went in Saudi when you sit upstairs in sada especially in Ramadan, I said Ramadan because you will get people from what do you feel when someone comes and sit next to you?
And that person is somebody you don't know and they don't look like you? And whatever I don't want to say more.
How do you feel? Why do you keep I don't know if it's in this Masjid that people reserve spots
for my friend to come, it's not my home.
I have no right to reserve to anybody. Why? Because I don't want this or that to pray next to me. Because I think with me whatever I have L Olia that I took with me I am better than that person.
So Allah subhanaw taala says those who takes
like this spider now the question is why the spider?
Why the spider? The spider makes a beautiful home of silk. You know that? of silk. Beautiful house? Why spider? Have you seen spider web? All of you. Have you been in a place where it is gets a little bit cold in the morning? I did see this in South Africa. And the whole field is white.
And I said what is that they said all this is all spiderwebs the whole field is not like in front and you're walking, you know, sometimes we don't know. And suddenly we are in the house like this is the whole field is why there's a beautiful picture online for that too.
Now when there's spider I want you to think of this right? The spider if you see how they do it from silk, they do one long, and then they do one at why and then she moves from one end to the other end start building and then building and building and in the middle put the sickest one if I was a spider,
what what do I think I'm doing?
Amazing. I'm very strong. I'm working very hard. No one can touch my house. Come and even try. Right? The thinking of Elanco boot and I am building this house and I'm going to be safe and nothing is going to change true or false.
And just walk and you don't even see that house and what happens?
When I think my power that's why the parable is there. If I think my power is because of my children. I am like that spider if I think
My power because of my beauty. I am like that spider because the spider house does not even protect the spider from heat temperature or cold.
Just looks good to her
to the spiders
and that's exactly what Allah keep reminding us every single day. Why do you think all this earthquakes? Did you see the pictures from Libya? Did you see it? No? Often?
What what did you hear?
What did you say to yourself other than feeding for the people praying for them? Alhamdulillah but what lesson I learned
that home that Allah knows that family how many years they worked and they build right in n second
can I say Lanka booty Tada to beta we're in the Ohana wrt lab at Lancome with a look at how Allah and no Canary Allah move. If they only know
when you read this, you say your OB I know that I need to show Allah I know. I really know.
And then the next one in Allahu Alem.
Now this is one of the beauty of the Quran is the opposite. Always the Quran give you opposite, thinking opposites scenes opposite if you look at the opposite, and you're telling me what is the opposite? So Alana talked about the uncovered question for everybody which will you have? Which one and how many? And they change by the way?
If I go back home that would he be different? If I am here that will he is different. And Allah says in Allahu Allah, Maya don't I mean do any Himanshi Allah knows very well. What they are calling of course here, it's about worshipping for us these days as Muslims is what we are attached to, and making them it are them more important than Allah.
In Allahu Allah Moon iodonium in joining him in shape, and look how he ended this verse.
He used to have his names, there is more than 99 names, to have his names. Allah knows what they are building, what they are collecting, what they are working hard for nothing. Well, who will Aziz al Hakim, whatsoever as he is, if you translate
al Hakim wise, why these two? Why not our foreign writing?
Very important question. When you read the Quran, make it
a project for you this Ramadan, pick one surah once more, and do with your project not only reading and you don't know what you already have, just pick a surah that you're familiar with. Take him taken Mulk take a walk out and look at how Allah ends the verses because the ending of the verses is the one of the biggest message Why might come on I just explained this for the last 10 minutes. Why might Why do I think I'm strong? Because I am healthy? Because I'm beautiful. Because I have children because Because Because really, he is the mind only
now can we alum that's why he said if they only know
by Allah and I asked you by his name, do we really know that Allah has mind?
Do we really know it in our daily life? Allah has might
Yes, thank you.
Again I'm not saying we know because that's what says Why am I low? Can we alimony they only know and know and know they why hacky?
Why why is I looked it up this one amazing and most of the toughest who said said because of his wisdom.
He does not rush in punishing people. Although they are doing what the spider is doing.
He does not let people go through their spider web and destroy it right away. He gives them time because he's wise I mean committee he that your ajibola Kuba Amara Machida, your algebra called out of his Rama he doesn't punish me right away Islam because Allah loves me
How can Allah loves him and I'm disobeying morning and evening.
Are you all with me? Look at the next to
completely change it if you're reading the constants what's happened now from spider now we go hello, hello somehow it will.
Allah created the heavens and earth
and then in Nephi
Daddy can lead Ayrton will move me. Worldly in this creation is a sign for the believers? Are we believers?
I need to hear you. Is there even a doubt? Hamdulillah I am not mocking out of Allah we are. But I am I the real believer that Allah has put in this verse. When I look around in this beauty we live in now either hate Allah for the last week What a beauty we are living in. What are weather? What are what what is the mountains? What is the ocean? What all? Is that a sign for me?
Is it a sign? Yes, in which way why it is related with the spider?
Why he moved from spider and airlines. And now he says hello customer what you will Oh, are these the ones that you're taking them as your worry. They are like spider home and you're leaving the One Who created the heavens and earth?
How an smart human being is
how UNSMIL that's what he said it's a it's a sign sign meaning something I see. But not only see I see beyond it. For example, I one of the first things I remember I learned more than 20 years ago and we were actually in in the wilderness. And then the teacher was teaching us about the creation of Allah and says look, what are you seeing? I said I see a frog looked at me three times is what are you seeing? I said I see a frog. I see a green frog.
And I don't know what he was saying said you didn't see I said it is a green frog. You didn't see it's a creation for law.
Did you see the point if he daddy killer idea, everything around you so to show Ara every three four by five verses verse I what was what size we are learning from around us whether it's good ones or it is the test one last but not the least two things I need in my journey to Allah subhanaw taala to stay strong and grounded. And I am not going to take anything more important than Allah is what he said in the next two verses. And this is torah. So Ali Surah, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Oh hey, les caminar Kitab
read your Quran and not read recite. There's a difference when between reading and re citation. Read he he's done with this torah soiree sort of setup. It's an order recite what has been revealed to you when Al Kitab here he called the book
and then next door that we're after Masada
perform Salah YrB
and now as statement about salah each one of us have to ask ourselves this question. Don't Don't look at anybody else.
What is my salah doing to me?
Because that's what he said here the only one in the Quran is the essence of solder the reality of almost solidly enough solder that and how fascia you will move worldly solder for video stops you that act stops you from fascia and muka fascia is immorality and mancha everything is rejected by the Dean
is that my solder?
Is that our solder? Look at us and the masajid I'm not talking about homes. Look at us upstairs and look at us downstairs. And we just prayed and the Imam read beautifully. And look how will you act afterward? I need to work on my salah till my salah becomes what Allah wanted from me, then. Then we'll have the Corolla here a kebab.
There you hear this verse very commonly on Friday, many of the Imams recited volley the remembrance of Allah is bigger
than anything else. Scholars had a long discussion about what is this dhikr here
most of them say it's the salah itself, because it's in the Arabic language is usually the description is related to the closest thing in the sentence.
Salah is the biggest dhikr the Salah, the real salah is the one that stops my mouth, stops my hands lower helped me to lower my gaze help clean my heart otherwise I'm just moving up and down
well as the call like a call and look how he ended it. And by the way, this is one of the 20th parts of the Quran and Allahu Allah muslim. Allah Who know what you're doing, and he here he puts Sona Lisa Aman. He knows he knows what your Quran is. He knows what my Quran he knows what my salah and he knows that the Corolla hiya Kabbalah not
think will help me in living my tests. Stay focused, focus on Allah, not taking anything equal to Allah, let alone above the Allah other than my salah and Quran. We are lost without them. We are lost without them. And I'm not talking about just reciting reciting is beautiful but if I want to change, I want to be a better person I need to know what I am reading.
If it takes me the whole life journey letter to be why do I know everything else everything else but when it comes to the Quran, may Allah forgive me before anyone and work on your Salah. You want to stay strong? You want to be passed the tests whatever test comes um okay well ethical Allahu Akbar, I am fine. I am not going to be like this on smart spider works all day. And finally it's nothing then work on these two. That's also one of the beauty of the Quran. He doesn't the Quran doesn't give me only statements. He gave me statements with diseases, diagnosis and treatment.
Where is the Quran in your life? Since Ramadan and where it is the Salah and my life since Ramadan May Allah subhana wa Tada what number one teachers and number two which is the most important thing is benefit us from this. Everybody goes today in sha Allah for Allah give us life and meet you next Tuesday. Evaluate two things in your life. Three, I will say what we learned so far my Sortland Kabu evaluate your Quran in your life. Evaluate your Salah, you evaluate, it's already being evaluated by the way. But let's we do it and evaluate who are your allies in this life? Before Allah anytime and I will end up with this. Anytime I disobey Allah for anyone or anybody. Then that person is what he
that's my spider web and may Allah protect us European design from ALLAH SubhanA Colombo be handing a shadow Allah stuff Furukawa today SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali Ali, who was habitus Steven cathedra will keep the time the same which is between Moldova national media desert La Jolla
