Okay, Smilla Sadam Ali coma Rahmatullah Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Minnewaska Loma Linda my info now on foreigner Bhima Alam tena Inaka Simeon would you would dua Lama now to become an MLA on file?

And rang me so today's the last class for with Surah

00:00:43--> 00:01:06

Yusuf and also the last class for the year. For the next two weeks at Hamdulillah. I'm going to be in umbra. May Allah subhanaw taala accept. So we will not have classes we will come back and show along the beginning of the year with a new surah and we'll keep it secret. How about that? Okay, Hamdulillah. And if you have any requests, just email, the ICI office and then we'll see. I already decided that maybe I'll change one. I'm just kidding.

00:01:07--> 00:01:49

I honestly decided but I have three options. I'm still thinking which 100 lovable anime. So we're going to finish in sha Allah, with the last verses from Surah. Two so and then the most important thing is what we're going to take with us home. We studied it for Eli having this is I think the sixth or the seventh week, what I am going to take with me home and how Surah Yusuf should or have already changed me. This is something for all of you. We have less than three months to Ramadan, and hunger brand. I mean, all of you and again, I hear that the masjid here is becomes much on what our cola. I mean, there is no place people put their foot I was told. So humbler, man this is great. But

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

the most important thing, what happened to me after?

00:01:53--> 00:02:01

And how many of you don't show me hand but ask yourself, How many of you you say, definitely I am a different person from last number one?

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

And if you say yes, in which way led to the conference, or come of course, don't praise yourself, but it's reality, or someone told you or you felt or you how do you know you've changed when Allah subhanaw taala test you

00:02:16--> 00:02:59

with the same, the same incident before and after I call it. So the same thing somebody accused you of something he didn't do before. So let us know if you reacted one way after so that you so you reacted differently in a better way, then you change it. But if you are the same, then you didn't learn anything. And if it is worse, if you are worse, if you are worse and don't say but to a fool you didn't know I didn't mean it. Don't give excuses. The whole idea of studying the Quran. That's why we called Understanding the Quran. It is not Tafseer Tafseer usually, it's for to understand the the external Tafseer is usually for the students of knowledge to know, but for me and you people are

00:02:59--> 00:03:16

living in this dunya trying to please Allah subhanaw taala trying to change what is or what are these sorrows doing to me? And the second thing and again, I'm going to remind you as we are going to go repeat any repeatedly I'll remind you till we get to Ramadan, what is it that all we did to

00:03:17--> 00:03:27

standing up in that Masjid? You know, it's very crowded, I was told and basically barely you can find a place and still gonna be late this year. What did it do to you?

00:03:29--> 00:03:30


00:03:31--> 00:04:09

So the most important thing this is in every step in your life, you have to have a goal. You have to have a goal and then you have to sell yourself, is it possible Allah is gonna make it easy? And then you put a timeframe and then did you reach it? And if you reach 200, let's always Allah's blessing. But what from the planning that Allah allowed me to plan which one works, I'll take it with me. And if I failed, which is the most important thing, why? And don't blame it on anybody. We live in a time and day and in a space where it's always someone's else's fault. I see it all the time with my patients. So always somebody's else's fault. Really, somebody standing says you know what, I did it.

00:04:10--> 00:04:51

Like we say I did it. But I stand up and I say it was my mistake. I did not react in the best way I was not patient as I shouldn't be. I did not apply what I learned. So learn especially the youth because that's what you see it and those of you who work in the corporate world that is always someone else's fault. It's their policy, it's the company it's my coworker. It's my boss, it's whatever it's my husband it's my brother it's always someone else and that's not Muslims not as euro was hirato with Raha so let's see as we will finish what did we learn what should we take with us home and then another month evaluate yourself and then as you go to Ramadan inshallah evaluate

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

yourself. So we ended last week by the dua that I told you, it's one of the most beautiful dua at least to me in

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

And I rarely remember that I read this dua and it did not move me. It moved me because it's a moment of triumph. It's a moment of finally as we save, like, you know, finally I did it. Finally Allah gave me victory imagine the people of Gaza after three months, right off complete of daily bombardment and then they will be victorious Inshallah, what is their feelings, how they will react, this is just, I'm giving you this example, just so you feel, right, and then he stood up after all this and he can do whatever he can do. And he says, Rob, because he will

00:05:37--> 00:06:23

turn to Allah right away. And every success he he achieved the nuts did not say I did it did not attribute it to himself at all, immediately rugby and as I said, without meaning, a personal moment with Allah. And this is, by the way in public because he was he just told them, he just told them shaitan did this. And then he turned to Allah says, at a 20 minute mark gave me the sovereignty gave me the power gave me the knowledge, whatever Allah gave you. And this should be should be applied in every moment of triumph or victory. You went to the most difficult oral exam, and you're the only one who passed and everybody else failed, or gotten unanimous. I didn't do it because I've smoked.

00:06:23--> 00:07:03

Oh, I prepared. Oh, I knew what they're going to ask me. I dressed properly, properly. The moment you put I, you missed it. The moment you put the AI Allah who say, Okay, fine, you did it. Okay, this time you did it. Let's see you next time, and then he will Subhana not facilitate you. So Rebecca Arteta noumenal mercury, Allah, you gave me from all sovereignty while Lampton him into will a hadith and you gave me all the knowledge and of course the interpretation of dreams, any knowledge you have, whatever knowledge you have, whether or not knowledge you raise your children to the best mashallah Tabata Cola, you got the highest degree, whatever it is at eight and you gave it to me.

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

That sign of humbleness. If you keep saying I, you're not humble.

00:07:10--> 00:07:53

If you think you're humble, you need to re revisit your evaluation. AI does not equal humbleness, humbleness, it's always someone's else grace on you. And false is always mine. It's exactly the opposite. Are you all with me? So it is always the opposite. The success is from Allah, the failure is from me. So don't be afraid to attend him then will give me from the sovereignty I limped in him into Hadith. You taught me all the knowledge, faster I smile at you and usually before you make a DUA, he did not make a DUA, yet, you always praise Allah. And in his in this one felt there was a molecule of the originator of the heaven of the earth. And he made to dua, and I reminded you last

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

week and I'm going to remind you again, how often you do this, do it yourself.

00:07:58--> 00:08:08

He made a dua for himself, telephony Muslims are happening besonderheiten make me die as a muslim. How many of us make this dua for ourselves? You're so sure you're gonna die Muslim? How do you?

00:08:10--> 00:08:19

How do I know? Allah knows people change in a minute, right? And you see, it could be one fitna comes one test one trial change me completely.

00:08:20--> 00:08:29

Thus, if he made this dua to himself, what about me? That will find a musty man and then never praise yourself? And that's exactly what he did. Well help me resolve.

00:08:31--> 00:08:51

When you say I'll happily beside a mean mean, let me join the righteous what does it mean? I am not righteous, right when I say join me, I hope I will. They will take me with the smart people. What does it mean? I'm not smart, but hopefully they will push me with them. That's what he said. If say they Yusuf is not righteous, who is righteous?

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Can I say I'm righteous?

00:08:56--> 00:09:28

Can we say we're the best people? So what happened besides so him now done? The story is done from the beginning to the end. But this is what the Quran teaches you is usually the message the message is not there yet. This was all story. So why did Allah tell me the story? Just to learn a story? The story was given toto So Ali salatu Sinha? I mean, there's many reasons why it was revealed. But one of them is says if you are a prophet, tell us what happened to the Father who lost his son and became blind.

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

And the other one he says, Okay, what about the man who moved from

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

Palestine to Egypt? Do you know anything about it?

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

That's why Allah said in the next one that he came in number 11 He now he's talking to Rasul Allah Santosa. from now till the end is to Rasul Allah salatu salam, which means there is a message to you and me also. And this message is clearer. Like the story of Satan the use of it is general, but this one is very clear that he can win

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

I'm back with a video here today. This is from the Amba the stories are the news of the unseen

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

why unseen?

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

Why unseen?

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

He didn't witness it. Why?

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

Come on Bismillah

00:10:21--> 00:10:34

time when we're saying the use of when was Roswaal is salatu salam time, years before? No, he lake. We are revealing it to you. And then

00:10:36--> 00:10:56

my quintet Alamo. You didn't know it that he came in and battle Rapinoe he, Mark I'm sorry, that's the other one. Well, my content today is Joomla amerihome Yum karoun. Here is specifically he's reminding him of something nobody knew about you. We're not with them when they plot all together. Who?

00:10:57--> 00:11:27

Who the brothers? So Allah is telling you, you're not with them. You didn't even know what they spoke to each other. And then you didn't know what they're plotting. It's a proof he was not there a proof? To whom to who is listening to the Quran at that time that he is a prophet in how the this this surah came in, in Makkah where the exactly probably one of the top moments of Rasul Allah is Otto Saddam when he was attacked from everywhere.

00:11:28--> 00:12:13

There was no support for him externally and even internally he was in his lowest moment. And that's why Allah is telling him we are telling you this you didn't know that and of course when he when Allah has revealing this verse, he sang it so that people are hearing hearing it right how did he know the brothers plotted to pretend one one said kill him with the other other says no, no, no, I'm sorry. They say kill him and once said Nana, put him in, in the world. If Mr. amerihome young Quran this verse, or this concept of Allah to pinata Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasul Allah Serato. Sam, you were not there we are revealing to you the unseat is was told in the Quran more than once, when

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

Allah told him about Seder Meriam

00:12:16--> 00:12:23

when when he was talking about Seder Meriam he told him that he came in embattled Rubino, he, same thing will consolidate him Omar

00:12:24--> 00:12:50

you will call Nicola home are you home your columbarium you were not with them when they were debating who's going to raise Meriam and Allah said to Roswaal as AutoSum when he spoke about Satan anyway to come in and leave you know, he had unique when he told all the story of sort of Satan No, he said this is from the story of the unseen why I'm saying this. We live in a non Muslim country. Many people will ask you how do you know the Quran is true?

00:12:51--> 00:12:56

Have you been asked this how do you know this Quran is not the words how do you know this Quran is the words of Allah.

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

Right? What do you say?

00:13:01--> 00:13:25

That's one of the one of that answers you say. There's so many ways you say but this is one of them is the story of Joseph How did he know on his SelectUSA no other books had this whole detail. He didn't live there. He didn't knew it's years before. How did he know all this detail? And the non Muslims they believe in Jacob and Joseph

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

muck with it and this is why it is that this verse is telling us why they sorta tell them you don't believe in me well they How did I know that?

00:13:34--> 00:14:03

Now look at the next three applies to us. This really should move you or at least makes you think what did he tell to our to Rasul Allah Santosa Walmart fellow NASA Walmart fellow NASA well Rostami mini majority of people he's telling to him talking to him, Allah Most people will not believe it doesn't matter how hard you're gonna try wallow Huddleston but does that remind you

00:14:04--> 00:14:25

how many people you know in your life? Close? Either they are non believer, or they don't practice or they reject completely. Right? You try new make dua and you did everything and especially mothers when they they talk to me I did everything on our x our national heroes to be more meaning majority of people they don't.

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


00:14:30--> 00:14:31

Why people don't agree.

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

Have you thought of?

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Why do we believe and some people don't?

00:14:40--> 00:14:41


00:14:43--> 00:14:59

It's a grace of Allah. That's the first thing you have to always remember always when I ask people enumerate the near the blessings of Allah, very few people say Stammen. Eema Although we live in a non Muslim country. So number one is the grace of Allah. There's nothing special about you

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

You knew, right? Right? We have two eyes. Everybody has. We have two ears. Everybody has. Right? We have one brain, everybody else has. But Allah subhanaw taala that's why I was born in a Muslim family and many people outside there they're not. Why do I know about Toto, Swati Asante sana, and many people don't. Because what kind of fertile Allahu La Calima the blessings of Allah upon you, it's great. That translate to what

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

what should I do?

00:15:33--> 00:15:39

What should I do, especially the youth, very grateful. Very grateful, because people are struggling

00:15:40--> 00:15:58

to believe, let alone to stay as believers. So that's one number two to him. You do your best. You talk to people. You explain. You raise them up. You send them to stomach schools, you've taught them about everything. They go to college and they change completely.

00:15:59--> 00:16:12

Alma accelero, nasionale Rasta, BMO Mini, remember this verse? Majority of people, as hard as you will do, as hard as you would call them, as hard as you explain, they will not.

00:16:14--> 00:16:20

The only thing I say the only this one I tell everybody when they when your children becomes adult, you have nothing left but Doha,

00:16:21--> 00:17:05

Doha and stay keep the relationship. And Allah is the One who changed the hearts. And when you feel really don't remember this verse, remember how the last page is all souls to Rasul Allah Assad was to make him feel better. So number one is like he's in Makkah, this is his people, eight years calling them doing everything. Very few people. Very few villages, his family included, very few believed, and he was telling him, don't worry. Whatever hard work you do, people will not believe at one point you have to as I say this to myself, let it go. Let go and just accept it. Don't accept it. It's okay. It's not okay. But accepted as mine.

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

test and trial in this dunya Alexei. And then.

00:17:11--> 00:17:38

Well, Martha solomani him in agile in Hawala, decolonial anime, and this is what everybody when you call people to any change in their life, and not necessarily only to Islam, you're turning a woman or somebody don't speak this way. This is not pleasing to Allah. Interesting. This way, this is pleasing to Allah, any anything that you are. Remember one thing, and this is what you tell to people in a nice way. I'm not going to be paid for saying this.

00:17:39--> 00:17:46

True. I'm not. And I'm not going to have extra if you did it or you didn't do it.

00:17:48--> 00:18:22

What matters no Humala, him in Agile, you're not asking for any benefits, any rewards. So when you are, let's say upstairs in the masala and you, for example, the woman next to us praying, she's four and you turn to her before we start this, I say, just get together, you're not gonna get anything after this. At All right? Nobody's going to send you a thank you letter, or you're going to get raise, honestly. But you're doing it because it's the right thing to do. And Allah has looking at me, and he is going to ask me did you try? Because what he wants from me is what

00:18:23--> 00:18:45

is trying is you put the effort, the result is not in my hand, the result in his hand. Sometimes you put very little effort, huge result comes in Have you seen it? Sometimes don't study whatsoever in Hugo and SubhanAllah. Every question in that exam, I know. And you say you're on beta current. And sometimes you've studied so hard to prepare a new goal and you do so bad.

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

You all have lived that right? That's why you always want to go to the exam. What do you say to Allah, Allah, please bring everything I know.

00:18:55--> 00:19:22

So Monticello malema, and that's why this is also a way of Dawa. Don't get upset when people don't listen to you. You're not saying it for people to listen to you. That's your ego. That's my ego. If I get upset if you didn't listen to me, that's my ego. I'm not doing it for Allah. I'm doing it so people will listen to me because it feels good. I am doing it because Allah taught me and I want everybody to go to Jana and take me with them.

00:19:24--> 00:19:36

That's basically your intention. And if they listened Alhamdulillah they didn't listen. Yeah, Allah makes them listen. Well, Monticello Humala, human and you'll remember this all the time, and even now turn it around when someone tells you something.

00:19:37--> 00:19:43

And what they are saying is right, younger, not very I don't get upset with them and tell her it's not your business.

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

Why she's doing it. She cares about you. Or he cares about right. I mean, everybody can stay silence is the easiest way. Why do I want to do this, this attic, but they care about you? They Allah taught them something you don't know and

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

They are telling you take it with a grain of salt take it as it is don't get offended. What what? Why is she saying this that she thinks she knows more than me? That's ego. That's arrogance. We shouldn't do that accept it and if it is wrong, and you are sure it is wrong, and again you respond in a nice way, once it takes two more back and forth you stop because now it's became argument. And now look at this, the I love this is one of the most also keep a close eye out to me because it makes me think, why does people or why we are let's say we are not where we are, where we want to be.

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

Is everybody pleased where they are in their relationship with Allah Shomi hands

00:20:47--> 00:20:55

Alhamdulillah so there is a lot of room for rugby record and we can always improve, right? Why we are not improving?

00:20:58--> 00:21:24

Is the next verse. One of the reasons there's so many reasons what Allah says will carry him in at least somewhat you will own your Morona Alia Whoa man, how are you doing? And look at the next one who are connected? Well my yo we know Axolotl homebuilder, he in our home, wash record, let's translate, translate how many signs I'm translating how many signs they pass by.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

And they don't pay attention and they turn them back to it.

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

And majority of people believe yet they associate with Allah. True or False?

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

True or False? Give me an example.

00:21:41--> 00:21:55

We live in one of the most beautiful cities. True or False. One of the most beautiful cities, there was a study today just came out. Is LA is I think it was number eight or nine from the destinations in the world that people traveled to.

00:21:56--> 00:22:07

Why? Because there's a lot of beauty. But we don't see it because we got you used to it. What is one of the biggest is size,

00:22:08--> 00:22:24

creation of Allah. We pass by every day, every day. That's what Allah say. What came in at midnight in this summer what you have alone in the heavens and India, your maroon Allah, they pass by it and you don't make an effort to go you pass why?

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

But they don't pay attention. Give me an example.

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

I'm sorry, nature. Give me an example.

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

A bird in front of you. A cat, an animal?

00:22:37--> 00:23:05

Even better. How many of you went to the grocery shop today? Just to get groceries? Right? Right. And you wanted to buy? What did you want to buy? Candy? Right candy, fruits, meat, whatever. Something we need, right? We don't look at going to the grocery shop, as an opportunity to see the signs of Allah. No, it's a duty. I need to go. Let's get it done. Live robot.

00:23:06--> 00:23:12

That's what Allah saying. They pass by it. It's there. They pass by it, but they are

00:23:13--> 00:23:22

heedless, turn their back. You take two seconds, two seconds. And look at the for example, the apples.

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

How many colors? How many kinds

00:23:29--> 00:23:34

these are signs of Allah. These are the creation of Allah because if you spend two seconds,

00:23:35--> 00:23:51

every three, four hours, two seconds, five seconds. Reflecting on this, your relationship with Allah will change completely. If you do this on daily basis because that's what he's saying is around Allah throw it around us.

00:23:52--> 00:24:10

This is why they say Allah usually is known by two ways, is to Makarova what Elia told Maria when I asked when my smooth our Makarova by the size that you see and the size you read, the size you read is the Quran measure many people will I don't understand the Quran Don't you understand a tree is a tree

00:24:12--> 00:24:15

just keep keep an eye and look and see how many trees when you drive

00:24:16--> 00:24:25

when the when the traffic is red instead of huffing and puffing or or do too long who all what we do or keep looking at our phones. Just look around.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

Just look around you and count the signs of Allah just counted.

00:24:31--> 00:24:46

Okay, even when I attend for summer, like you're on the Morona pass by let alone you go to the ocean. Here we are, let alone you drive the other side you see all the mountains. How many cities in the world has the mountains and the ocean within 20 minutes to distance

00:24:47--> 00:24:57

and up and down? It's really you wake up in the morning and the temperature is 41 and then by 12 and one o'clock the temperature is 70 What is this?

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

What is this was changing this

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

So why he's saying all this soulless Saraswati, sir to set up? Don't worry. They're just they're the losers, they they're just not paying attention.

00:25:11--> 00:25:22

Now the next one will work at em in Iet in Yamamura. And they have so my wife and I have them Roma and a oh man, how are you doing? Now this is the most scary to me, because it applies to us.

00:25:24--> 00:25:31

Well, my you know, Axolotl home Villa here in our home was recorded. The majority of them believe in Allah Hamid, who believe in Allah in this room.

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

Why we are here?

00:25:35--> 00:25:51

But Allah says, look at the next part and now show me hands. Right and the last pantalla says warmer you only know what federal homebuilder law homeless record, majority of them believe in Allah yet they associate with him.

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

How many of you associate with ALLAH, something?

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

If you didn't raise your hand, you're in big trouble.

00:25:59--> 00:26:05

Otherwise, you're not going to be here. So that's for sure it's not. But he says you amino Billa we believe in Allah. Yet. We are mushrik we associate with Allah. Yes or no? Who says yes. Raise me raise. Show me hands. Like who says no?

What about the others?

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

No opinion.

00:26:38--> 00:26:53

That's scary. Because you have to have an opinion. The answer is yes. Let me ask you a couple of questions. Then you will get at least Nila. How many times you don't do something? You don't do something? Because people are looking at you.

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

Show me hands.

00:26:57--> 00:26:57

That's it.

00:26:59--> 00:27:18

You didn't say Allah, he's looking at me. And you didn't do it? Because it's not pleasing to Allah. No, you didn't do it because people are looking at you. And what will people say? True or False? Okay, turn it around. How many times you've done things and you're waiting for the praise?

Right? Why don't I do A and B and C and D which is pleasing to Allah? No different opinion, no question about it.

00:28:30--> 00:28:46

Nobody else is doing it. I'm going to be different. I want to fit in. Then the fit in whoever I want to fit in with are more important than true or false. Human beings usually is the biggest problem.

00:28:47--> 00:29:32

spouses, children, friends, society. I don't want to be singled out. I don't want to be different. That's what it is. And because of that, I'm going to stay away from things that Allah says do.

Why did you deal treat your husband this way? Why did all the things that he told me to do? And I know and he's going to ask him and the reason usually is me. What am I you know, axon biller? Elon Musk record.

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

So the question is, are you are mushrik?

00:32:35--> 00:33:01

In the not in the healthy distance? The answer is I want to hear it. You have to say don't be shy. It's real. It is real. Yes, I am. I am sometimes unintentionally and sometimes intentionally. I don't want to do this because people will talk about me but this is pleasing to Allah. Yeah. You say but

00:33:02--> 00:33:15

yet when you start making excuses stop making excuses. So all my work Federal Home biller law almost frequent that Allah remind us and them are you safe from the punishment of Allah?

00:33:17--> 00:33:25

Ha the concept in the Quran is repeated effort. I mean, are they really feeling safe? And Tatian last year, tominaga Billa.

warm layer shall run you don't feel Can you guarantee that as we speak right now, that's a huge wind is going to come and blow everything as the day of judgment. Can you guarantee

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

anybody can guarantee?

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

So why we are still in our slumber?

00:33:55--> 00:34:06

Did he see why he said, keep looking around, you see the signs. Because I want I need if I need to be alert all the time. Because normally I am not.

00:34:07--> 00:34:27

I'm talking about myself. And all of us probably are the same. We're distracted, are so distracted. The focus is not the akhirah the focus is not Allah, the focus is anything and everything but Allah. And that's why you see the Quran in the language of the Quran suddenly comes a scary idea. Because I need to wake up

00:34:28--> 00:34:47

after I mean, are you really safe? And Allah repeated this in the Quran if it's uncertain in many places. I mean, you're sleeping and the punishment of Allah comes in, can you guarantee going to sleep and wake up tomorrow morning? Can you guarantee that you're going to your house the one you are in tomorrow morning, the house is still there. We're seeing it.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49


00:34:50--> 00:34:54

now he talks to Roswaal risottos and telling him say the following.

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

And this is to you and me.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

You need strength to say this

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

You need conviction to say this man I'll give it to us called her the he CBD lotta lemongrass oil inside, see what they are doing to you?

They are mocking you they making fun of you who are you whatever is crazy he is easy. He said say this.

00:35:21--> 00:35:25

And this is what we all have to learn. I call her the CBD. This is my way.

00:35:26--> 00:35:45

And our Sierra, my way is based on knowledge. And basura insight is not my opinion, or this is the law. This is insight from Allah. I know many to Bernie that applies to us. He's saying I Rasul Allah Santosa. And everyone who followed me

00:35:47--> 00:36:07

How many of you and show me hands, we really need the last as I told you, the last page of Surah Joseph is a page for reflection is a page you sit down and say, Is this as me? Are you moving in your life is the path of your life, Allah basura insight from Allah,

00:36:08--> 00:36:09


00:36:11--> 00:36:31

or it is culture. This is how I grew up. It doesn't matter where what culture is, the culture of the city is different than the culture of the standing. And the culture of this part of the world is different than the culture of that part. Is it? Is it this is something may be interesting to everybody. It shouldn't be. All of us are saying

00:36:34--> 00:36:42

true or false. The people of Medina didn't differ. They were not different from the people of Makkah. In the beginning, they were but then they all

00:36:44--> 00:36:52

melt in the melting pot should not be a country, the melting pot should be the region.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

It shouldn't be.

00:36:55--> 00:37:04

That's what he's had. He said, Ed, as you're all in Allah, how many of you today call to Allah subhanaw taala. Somebody

00:37:05--> 00:37:07

reminded someone of Allah.

00:37:11--> 00:37:42

And you all interacted with people today, I'm sure. Very unlikely you didn't interact with people. Right? Just a word. Just a gesture, just an act. Had he subete ado, I invite I call Darwin, we all talk about Darwin. Everybody wants to do Darwin and have to do our publicly Darwin is everywhere. Now, the dress code you address is the biggest data provided your action is with the Darwin with your dress code.

00:37:44--> 00:38:06

Heavy CBD, this is my way. And you're either law. That's my goal in life. My goal in life is not to sleep and eat and have fun, or go to college or get married or have children. This is all means. These are not the goal should never be the goal. I always ask the youth, those of you who attend on Thursday in 10 years, where do you see yourself?

00:38:07--> 00:38:19

The usual answer is, you know, married with children who graduate all the dunya things yet I want to hear somebody and said to say in 10 us hopefully I will be a better Muslim.

00:38:20--> 00:38:43

Then you are focused on your Africa and that's the youth alone. Not the very young hottie he said we do it Allah my my life is to call to Allah remind people to Allah. Allah wa su insight is not that's how I did it. That's how my mom taught me. It's ANOVA zero knowledge. I know many terbang Roswaal De Soto Sam and us. Woman turbine.

00:38:44--> 00:38:53

Homer phenomenal, Masha, can you read again here he emphasized that he is not he doesn't absolutely put anyone with ALLAH subhanaw taala.

00:38:54--> 00:39:12

Then Alok, and this is a long of discussion, but I'm just going to give you a Marcin Nam uncomplicate laryngeal and no Haley him, many Al Quran. Allah here is putting a principle that all the prophets are men, because there's a lot of discussion about whether any woman prophets know

00:39:13--> 00:39:32

the strongest opinion is actually very weak opinion who says May we say the marine was a prophet she was not on our side now will complicate learning John and Henry jealous men is not human being is men. And no he lay him they all had the revelation. It's not their opinion. They didn't see it. When active Cora

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

that's it. And as woman why?

00:39:38--> 00:39:47

Why there was no female. I've heard it by the way. This is why I'm bringing it up. Why there is no woman prophets who can answer

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

I'm sorry.

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

hardship and other writers

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

exactly along wanted it that way. They

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

Um Let's learn just to say that's how Allah wanted it

00:40:05--> 00:40:21

and then if you want to get deeper okay go deeper yes hardship and you know it's comes with a lot of responsibilities the woman has other you can all this was number one that's what Allah says Walmart or Santa uncomplicate yada yada nor am I done

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

one of our biggest problem you know what?

00:40:28--> 00:40:30

What is it of you all? What is it?

00:40:31--> 00:40:43

Yes, especially. Thank you. I didn't say it. Yes. We love to argue it's very hard for us to accept, right? Why?

00:40:45--> 00:40:54

Majority by the way, I wouldn't say all of us because I have met literally, I've met a woman. And I said yeah, Allah give me what you gave her.

00:40:56--> 00:41:01

And it's natural. It's not like she's faking it natural. Anything you asked me so yes.

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

So Marcin don't argue the prophets were men.

00:41:09--> 00:41:20

And then a very nice idea, very nice is the one before last again to Roswaal is sought to assemble applies very much these days had the status arose.

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

The profits lost hope

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

will the new unknown adequately will acquit the book and they came to the conclusion that people are not believing them.

00:41:34--> 00:41:36

Do we live this this these days?

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

Yes. In which way

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

in which way

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


00:41:45--> 00:42:05

right many of many people are losing hope. A lot of people are losing hope. Right? And Allah said this hashtag the state of sorrow so when you reach the point there is a say in r&b Those of you who know r&b will note here as a Mr. DTM Ferengi. They say when it gets so bad smile.

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

It's gonna get better. That's how they say

00:42:10--> 00:42:35

and that's exactly the concept had Tyler State SRO so the profits lost hope. People will not believe in them. People are gonna keep walking them. There is no light at the end of the tunnel. Well then no and no home Cutco zebu and they are now seeing that people not believing them. Right? What happened? What happened? Jah Hoonah suona the victory of unlocking

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

the support of Allah king

00:42:40--> 00:42:48

when you GM and Nisha and we will save whom we will why all these people are dying and some are not Manisha that Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

who will not be saved

00:42:54--> 00:43:06

and it is here. What I read your sunnah and uncommon would remain. The wrongdoers will not be saved. I don't want this I want when the victory of Allah comes in, my name should be number one.

00:43:07--> 00:43:48

Because I supported him at the time of difficulty when the victory comes in, I'm going to be saved this you apply it everywhere I remember it we were in a class. And one of the students was really struggling. Really, really struggling. Finally she did it one of the students mashallah she was happy about the Quran and brings the Quran the moment she looked at her and says hashtag the status of Rosada because she thought she will fail. Finally she passed. So the other student looked at her and quoted this verse. Wonder when the Prophet SAW they will they all are not going to be believed. The victory of Allah came she looked at her and says the victory of Allah Cain

00:43:50--> 00:44:05

gives me hope. Whatever difficulty we're living it whether on a personal level, whether on a community level, whether on a global level, don't you lose hope. The Muslim is always always always

00:44:07--> 00:44:19

hopeful in the victory of Allah hopeful in the victory of Allah I may not see it in my lifetime, but I know it's gonna come like I see it.

00:44:20--> 00:44:59

And we live that in the Sierra and majority of you have seen it you know, in that hazard, they were all surrounded and no way you 40 days you know, food, and he say I see it. That photo had Kisara I see that we are going to go and conquer Kisara which is like the Persian Iraq and you're surrounded with all completely in, completely surrounded, besieged, he says, I see. That's what we all should be. We all should have this strong. Faith certainty in our last one data, he will give us the victory, but maybe please forgive me. Maybe we are not yet. You know why?

00:45:01--> 00:45:04

because we are not yet the people who give Allah victory.

00:45:05--> 00:45:15

When the people who gives Allah victory, he will give us victory in terms of Allah, you also comply with a bit Akadama come to give victory to Allah, Allah will give you victory.

00:45:17--> 00:45:36

You will fast and you have an exam. And it's very difficult. And guess what Allah will do? We made the exam, the easiest. Everybody will tell you what, feel dizzy, and you said, Oh no, I'm just going to do it. That's pleased to Allah. Now you give victory to Allah, meaning you obeyed him, what will happen? You go to the exam, and you are fully awake.

00:45:38--> 00:45:41

I was like, how did this happen? Normally without my coffee, don't talk to me.

00:45:42--> 00:45:52

That's how Allah gives you victory. The victory of Allah is not like you're enter in a war and you're fighting the victory of Allah sometimes so subtle. But again, because we are too

00:45:53--> 00:46:17

busy, busy, we don't pay attention to how Allah operates. If you just take time, sit down, and reflect, as he said, Hear Subhana and reflect around you. Now sometimes things change in a way, then you will be so surprised one of the actions of Allah you're seeing it right now you're sitting in it.

00:46:18--> 00:46:30

And I'll tell you the story after we go after we finish the line, because this is a local law, an internal matter, let's say this way and turn on my feet. Last thing Allah subhanaw taala says, why did why there are stories in the Quran.

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

And one day in sha Allah, Allah give me life, I will give you a whole series about stories of the Quran lacks a canopy of Kasasa him a barrage only little bob. How many of people how many in this room say I'm smart?

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

Really, I'm the only smart person.

00:46:50--> 00:47:21

Right? I'm swamped. You say you know what? Smart Money you get it? Right? You know, people don't have to explain to 1000s time you understand? And I'm not saying you're genius. I said smart. Now everybody is becoming very humbled. hamdulillah that's fine. Then then then the Quran. The stories of the Quran is a way or a mean for you to get close to Allah embora Ebara is admonition

00:47:23--> 00:47:28

the only Al Bab those who are smart those who reflect meaning

00:47:30--> 00:47:53

you go through a difficult time how many of you are going through a difficult time doesn't matter what it is? Right everybody? Everybody right? Doesn't matter. Yeah, it doesn't have to be death to disease right? Something you just woke up you have a headache. It's a moment of difficulty that Quran this Quran let alone the story of Satan a user should out right away, be the Tylenol

00:47:54--> 00:48:03

you're gonna take the time on and say Bismillah Inshallah, by this Allah you make the Tylenol work that's that you took the mean was the Quran Shiva and Allah said it

00:48:05--> 00:48:21

Rezero mineral Qurani Maha Shiva own. We sent down the Quran that is cure, cure how cure when I say your Allah, this needs a lot of patient and I can do that then you stand for a second or you certain anything? Well, they didn't throw me in the well.

00:48:23--> 00:49:02

They did not take me as a slave. They don't put me in jail for nine or 10 years and I did nothing. i He was patient. What is it? Just be patient. Did you see the point? This is now the Quran is changing you now when you're dealing with the page or the Jews or whatever you are reading is changing you and then Allah ended up what is the Quran he described it for thing Allah describe the Quran many ways in the Quran. Here are the cards can I feel Kasasa him Abraham only real episode The only real bug in their stories meanings are what we just said. It's an admonition to those who are who can reflect smart

00:49:03--> 00:49:23

MCE and a hadith and Utara when somebody asks you what is the Quran? Number one, it is not words. It's not it's not truth. It is not the word of Rasul Allah Santosa. Well, I can but does the faladi vain ad that's number one. It affirms all the previous books.

00:49:24--> 00:49:39

Does the Aquila the Vedic well, who then it says source of guidance. And as I started, I'm going to end if you finished Quran three or four times in Ramadan, and you started a and you ended the A, then the Quran is not a guide for you.

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

The Quran was a book you read.

00:49:43--> 00:49:58

And that's why every time you will start reading the Quran. You need to say to yourself how this verse or this chapter or whatever you're reading changed me or changing me and if not, you turn to Allah and ask him to make it a guide. Who the

00:49:59--> 00:50:00


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

See number one it's explained all the one before guidance and it is Rama but to whom the homie you know, it's the mercy from Allah. The best thing that we were given and we don't feel it two things who can tell me two things the best near Mr. Of this OMA two things.

00:50:23--> 00:50:28

One is what? I can't hear you. Yes, come on. Yes. Yeah.

00:50:30--> 00:50:42

Islam, but the amorphous term we're given two things. Al Quran is one and the Rasul Allah Azza tussah. And please forgive me May Allah forgive me. And if I am wrong, correct me the least we take advantage of

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

in reality, we all love Rasul Allah Satoshi there's no doubt. Tell me what Sunday we did today.

00:50:51--> 00:50:57

Don't tell me ask yourself, show it. Prove it. And you told me the Quran

00:50:58--> 00:51:36
