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

I had the Mossad who was set up in the Odyssey didn't even

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

bother and he was, he was having to Steven pyrrha, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, and 100 in the province of Allah. And he said, I'm said that the slightly more parhaiten a, he has two joys. One is the joy when he breaks his bath, which is at each end of the day, but also

00:00:31--> 00:00:58

on the read, because we're bringing back and the second thought, aha, the second joy is when the faster Mr. Lord and the prophets Allah, he said, did not mean the joy of eating the food. According to him unknowingly. He meant the joy of completing an event that that's the joy that you you fulfilled, something that your Lord commanded you to do. He would never look at something so low as eating food to be the joy of the believer.

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

So Alhamdulillah is a great blessing. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Alhamdulillah This is the second Ramadan in the COVID lockdown was very interesting. The Quran says, you know, the people in hell they have over them 19 and it's like a loss put over us this COVID-19 because humans have made the planet hell. The Quran says to the people of hell, Allah says to the people of hell, matter can lead and also wrong What's wrong with you that you don't help one another even in hell, they're not helping one another.

00:01:36--> 00:02:18

In Hell, they're not helping one another medical lesson also don't What's wrong with you that you don't help one another. So even in hell, they haven't learned the lesson. hellish people don't help one another. And the people agenda are people that help other people to help one another. And that's the whole purpose of community. That's the purpose of the dean that we've been given is to our anniversary will taqwa like helping one another environment apart? Now the other thing about this dunya is it's adorable Bella, the province Allah Allah it was it was seldom, he said in a Hadith, they asked him sundara sort of leisel I said, Are you nasty? I said to Bella, and who, which people

00:02:18--> 00:03:04

have the most, the worst tribulation in the dunya? He said an MBO salam, salam, firstly, prophets, the prophets, Thurman, unthankful, anthem, and then after that, those who are closest to them, and then those that are closest to them. So the tribulations Sahaba were they were students of the Prophet? And what happens right when the Prophet goes, they have the tribulation of the fitna, they'll start fighting one another is amazing. So this is the nature of dunya. It's always going to be tribulation. And if you accept that as a baseline, then you'll be much better off than people that think that they're here to enjoy paradise. The pros items and adonia Cg movement. It's the

00:03:04--> 00:03:13

prison of the believer. What do you do in prison? A lot of people there was a man who was imprisoned in Alcatraz, and every night, he would,

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

he had this little, there was a like,

00:03:18--> 00:03:26

a great for where the air came in. So he took off the grid, and he began to make a tunnel.

00:03:27--> 00:04:14

Every single night, he would stay up the whole night. And he would dig because he wanted to escape Alcatraz. He was a criminal. But he will every night he did that night work. He's the only person known to have escaped, he brought two people with him. But that is what a prisoner who wants to get out of his prison does. He does night work because he can't do it in the daytime. So the moment he wants to get out of this prison, he does not work the province a license, it helped me with night work to get you out of the prison because this is a low security prison. The next one is maximum security. It's much worse than this one. This is the low security prison. So we should recognize

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

that it's a great blessing to be in a low security prison. We even get

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

spousal visitations.

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

Some prisons they do that they hidden them, spousal visitation, it's a blessing. But know that this is just a big sell. When I used to be an Imam in the prisons, I used to tell them, the point is when you and the people outside is you know, you're in prison, and your cells much smaller than the cell outside. But this is a cell for the believer, and that's why the believer follows the injunctions of the warden. Because when you don't you get your sentence to be long, you're not going to get off for good behavior. When the parole board comes up. You won't have an excuse. They'll say, Well, you did this and you did that. You got in

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

Those fights and you were stealing other prisoners goods and you've been murdered a prisoner here. They're not going to give you parole. So the dunya is a decision so the profits on the lining on he was sent him said

00:05:13--> 00:05:38

and the thing that I'm thankful that you've had a NASA attorney Dini him, people will be given tribulation in accordance with their Deen. It's commensurate with their Deen. The greater your deen. The more tribulation you have for men Thana, Deena, wish that the better Oh, so the one who has a strong Deen affirm Dean, he has great difficulty, woman borrow her Dino Hold on.

00:05:39--> 00:05:56

And the one who has a weak Dean, his tribulation is weaker. We're in a Rasoolallah joseba, who went out or had the young Shia and an Arab or not la hottie and a man will be continued to get affliction until he's walking on the earth like an angel.

00:05:57--> 00:06:27

He's walking on the earth without sin. There's people that's their condition. And you might you don't know if you meet a person like that. They're walking on their they've had so much tribulation in their life, and they've been patient and content with what Allah gave them. And so they don't have any sin. Because it's all been removed and some of the sleight of hand and you see this. You see this in Arabic at the end of their lives, they get brave tribulation, and they have extended illnesses, because they're going to leave the world without any tribulations.

00:06:29--> 00:06:57

They're going to leave the world in a state of purity. There are many verses that tell us this model saw the coming man hasn't implemented law, whatever afflicts you from hustler is from Allah will not apply back in and see yet him feministic and whatever afflicts you from any CEO firm, any difficulties, it's from your own cell, what are some nugget in nasya, rasuna, more capability shahida. And we sent you as a messenger to convey these messages to people so they would know. And all the messengers bring this message.

00:06:58--> 00:07:12

That this was the message even even the Buddha is his teaching, the very first thing he taught his people, the world is suffering, you're going to have difficulty. That's the nature of it. And Ben his, he said the cause was attachment.

00:07:13--> 00:08:02

Because if you're detached, you're not going to suffer. If you're detached from your illness. If you just see this as, okay, this is part of the world. This is what this is. This is what Allah intended in the creation. And then one mile sobre como si, but then febi markers have they become ob markers or play D come in rewire, we have one kid here, whatever afflicts you, it's what your own hands have earned. It's what your own hands have earned. So that's something to understand also, there's two types of masiva. There's mo Siva that comes by the very nature of the Abode like the tsunami, and other great what they call natural evil as opposed to moral evil. Moral evil is when you do

00:08:02--> 00:08:39

something to another person, like somebody kills a person is moral evil, because that is a moral agent. They kill that person, but natural evil, it just occurs in the world. And a lot of people have a hard time with it. They don't understand it, because it afflicts everybody. Allah Subhana Allah says a taco fit and attend glad to see Ben and Edina moving from hausa, guard yourselves against tribulations that don't just affect the the wrongdoers among you. The reason that that Allah say the reason this is so is because if it only affected afflicted the wrongdoers, then there would be no reason to do I'm going to be in my

00:08:40--> 00:08:57

car. But when they see that, oh, if we allow evil to proliferate, then we're all going to get affected by it. And that's why a wise philosopher said that the only thing evil needs to proliferate is for good people to do nothing.

00:08:58--> 00:09:14

And so Allah has made the center of this world that when people openly do evil, it affects everybody, even the children. And amuro enamel going out Father, I wish I had that in my head, that even children will suffer. So

00:09:15--> 00:09:42

a lot of what you're seeing now is a result of the sinfulness of people. A lot of these diseases you don't know where they came from. But the prophets I send him said that perversions never manifest in the people except they get diseases that their, their ancestors didn't know about. So even diseases, a lot of the sources of disease is the sinfulness of people. That's our belief. People don't want that everybody wants these materialistic scientific excuses. In the in Santa Ana de basura.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

The human being is embedded in several NFC pulsera. Verily, man knows him so well. What about them and they are even if he gives his excuses. So that's very important to remember that. And one of the things about that is he says, Well, yeah, if one could

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

He'll in sort of the Shura that he forgives many things. In other words, what we're getting compared to what we deserve, is actually much less. So that's a blessing in itself. And that's why even on a bad set in any blessing, see, in any tribulation, see three blessings. So that you're grateful, because the higher mom is not to be patient is actually to be grateful. The first is that it could be worse. So that's a reason to be grateful. The second is that it's in your dunya and not in your deen Lutsenko see button. Effie. Dina, he said in a duel, don't make our tribulation in the religion. So it's in the dunya that's a blessing. And then he said the third was it's in this world

00:10:45--> 00:11:35

and not the next. So any tribulation or climate that happens to you, you have to say Alhamdulillah for those three reasons. So that's that's, that's really, really important. And also the province license. I showed him and relates that he said some a lot I do and he said, mommy musi button to Cebu schema Illa kapha, labia and who say, yeah, that no, the nothing that that happens to you in any calamity. Illa kufr Allah subhanho he will remove sins in that calamity. And there's a hadith also that he that habibollah home and uptodown for either either another year. Right either if they were content for Omar Eva, then they get the contentment of Allah we the second thought, but if they

00:11:35--> 00:12:02

get angry, but I want to suffer, then they they get the opposite. So that and then he said, had to show cartoon, or a showcase. He had the shoka to even the thorn that you get in your foot. Yes, you shackle her that that that afflicts the foot. We're not when I was every time we'd walk, and they had these things called in at their little, they really drive you nuts. The more time you would always

00:12:03--> 00:12:43

have the kuffar like I really had because they get all over your feet and their feet are like rocks because they walk all the time in the where's my feet were California feet, they were much more sensitive. So they really but they would they looked at it as a good thing. They didn't see it as a negative thing. It's a different what their whole way of viewing believers, you things completely different. One Mauritania, he asked me if they had flies in America. And I said, you know, actually we don't really have because in Mauritania, when they bring the food 1000 flies, they're like a swarm of locusts. They just come, it's amazing. And they have to swat them away. Somebody sometimes

00:12:43--> 00:13:25

just keeps fanning so that others can eat from the flies. And I told him, You know, I you don't really see flies very often. He said that was a big step agenda. And I remember I said, I see grabbing them out. They're getting all their blessings early. Like he just looked at it in a different way. Because that's the way the believer looks. So that's very important. The prophets I said I'm said in the cutover Allahu Allah will be has in our hopper and we'll be happy. Allah will decrease just even a thorn that you get a Hasina with it, because it's an empty die. So that's very important. Allah subhana wa adatto and he said the either the nominal stereoview somebody will sell

00:13:25--> 00:14:09

out, like, take the is the Anna in supper and prayer in patients and prayer in the Lucha masabi because Allah is with the slavery. He's with the patient ones. So be patient. sobre was sugar. These are things he has that he puts them together, because the Quran puts them together. They're very important. And then he says what? To who really Manuka roofie Sammy dilla um, what don't say about the people who were killed in the way of Allah that they're dead, they're not dead. But what I cannot tell you, you're not aware of their life. So even when you lose people, and many people like COVID people, if you're a believer is a martyr's death Sahaba in in the year they had the the,

00:14:10--> 00:14:21

the plague in Syria, there was Sahaba that they Allah to take them they were they were older people, but they begged a lot because they wanted to march down.

00:14:23--> 00:15:00

So and they actually were taken in that so they actually asked even though we're not really supposed to ask her death, the prophet said don't ask for death. He said datum Indian that I had a comment most men will see button asaba to don't ask her death because of some calamities effective when in Canada with a failure for a healing modality, hire to hire and he would often email Canada what how to hire and leave that if you have to say it then say keep me alive as long as life is good for me and let me die when when death is better for me. And I'm going to talk about that in a moment. So then, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us when I know

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

Blue in no condition manner how we will jewelry went up to a minute on while he went on visit with thammarat wabasha Sabri. He is going to test you in the dunya. So give good tidings to the people who show patience. What do they do? And Medina, either a Sava twin musi baton party in what in that you know you're on your own with a garden saltwater will become what would I calm down. So that is is those are the people that when they're afflicted, they remind themselves, it's a reminder to yourself,

00:15:34--> 00:16:05

I belong to God, so God can do whatever he wants with his, with his dominion, I belong to God. And and one of the things a lot of the tribulation like it's not because of the idea him, I was talking about the two types of masiva so that you have the natural ones. And then you also have things sometimes just genetically, you're more predisposition to certain illnesses as a pita from Allah, it's not your fault. But if you're over eating, if you're not exercising, if you're doing these things, and then you get sick, you have only yourself to blame

00:16:07--> 00:16:38

that because there's things that you can do health health is a choice for a lot of people. It's a choice like you choose to be healthy by doing the things a lot told you to do to stay healthy. If you don't do those things and then you get sick, then you have no one to blame but yourself. So that's that's very important to remember that. And then one of the things about tribulation, the prophets Allah sent him said, You know what? Allah Viet Yama piano Hina yoga I don't

00:16:39--> 00:17:21

know under Judo don't cannot puri that, then my party. I mean, this is amazing how these mammoth pyramid he related. He said that on the on the day of judgment when the people who have good health and well being in dunya, because some people they don't, they're blessed like that, and it is a blessing. We don't want tribulation, we We ask Allah for avea The Prophet said, ask Allah for well being. But if it comes to you, he said, Be patient. So we don't ask all gimme tribulation. But he said sallallahu wasallam. And this is test Leah for the creation. It's a way of consoling and solid for the people who tribulation. He said that on the Day of Judgment, when the people of well being

00:17:21--> 00:17:47

in the world, see the people of tribulation, they will wish they could go back to the agenda and have their skin flavored with scissors, like literally cut off, because that's the way they used to torture people, they, you know, you can't flame them alive. They would wish that that was their tribulation. So the point is that whatever, don't ask for tribulation, we don't want to be a nation. But if you get it, you have to understand that it's not a it's not a negative thing for believers.

00:17:48--> 00:18:08

There's redemption in it, there's a reason for it. Now, if you look at the province items live, who had more tribulation, he had tribulation, he was an orphan. People have no idea if there's any orphans here, they know exactly what I'm talking about. But people that had the blessing of two parents, or even one parent,

00:18:09--> 00:18:46

to grow up without parents, the people that brought you into the world, their siblings for your existence, the reason for the existence, just to have to have pairs for a long time. You know, the Sudanese proverb says that you're a child as long as your parents are like, because even if you're 50 years old, your parents will treat you, you know, you're just their kid. That's the way they'll do especially the ladies notice more than the men because they have this and that's natural. But when they die, you're an orphan. And you feel it doesn't matter how old you are, you feel like something's been lost in the dunya

00:18:47--> 00:19:23

that you can't get back. And and, and people who've lost their parents know exactly what I'm talking about the ones that haven't yet just honor your parents, and call them and, and visit them if you're able to, because they're a great blessing to have and they love you. And it's an unconditional love. It's an amazing type of love. So the promises and lost his parents, and then he lost his uncle. And then he had he had many tribulations. And then when the prophecy came, his people chased him out. In fact,

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

what I told him,

00:19:27--> 00:19:44

You know, I wish I was with you, while What have I been no Phil, who was fetishise relative. When she took him she knew to take him because he knew about the scriptures. And she thought it was revelation. And he confirmed that he said this, the note now moves the nomos, the law that came to Moses.

00:19:46--> 00:20:00

When what he said, I wish I was a young man so that I could be with you to support you when your people chased you out. He said, Our Moriya like they're gonna chase me out. He couldn't understand it. Like why would they do

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

He was alameen. He was from a noble to plan. But that's the Sunnah of the Prophet. The Prophet has no honor in his own land. And this is the son of the province, they get chased out. So that's a huge tribulation to lose your clan, especially in a tribal society.

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

And then he went to Medina and all his life, his tribulation, he lost all of his children, except for one, he buried six of his children. I mean, who, who, who has done that? Very few people.

00:20:34--> 00:21:01

And then he, you know, he, his sickness was the sickness of double, twice, any sickness he got was twice the natural sickness. So if you got a headache, it was twice as bad as anybody else. So this, this was the way this is our Prophet sized him. When he had the he, he asked him what was the worst period he said it was when he went about it. That was the worst thing. And he said, Your people what your people did to me, because

00:21:02--> 00:21:49

the privatizers is really not of this world. I mean, he had the physical form of an Arab, but he was not of this world. Wet Wet when he went to thought if they literally threw rocks at him after he called them to Islam, they threw rocks at him. And then they the people spit on him and the slave they had their slaves, which is even more humiliating, they need to do it themselves. And so when he was going out, the angel came to him, him and said, Do you want to destroy these people? He said, No, I hope that there'll be guided and that was a test for him. Allah was testing him. But he his dad affairs guy, he said along with edeka Escobar for poverty. I complained my weakness. See, he

00:21:49--> 00:21:53

didn't say eyeshadow ami or Asha escucha.

00:21:54--> 00:22:35

This is what we do. Now. Today, we complain about everybody but ourselves. He didn't say, as cool how many how many puppies? He didn't complain about them. He said ESCO dafa. Poverty was filled with activity and my lack of strategy. Like I went there. I tried. He's, he's complaining about himself. Like, maybe I wasn't good enough. Maybe I didn't present it the best way. That's that he's he's not blaming them for rejecting the message. He's blaming himself. It's amazing lesson in this day. And then he said, Well, Hawaiian, he added that he didn't say what you had it in SEIU.

00:22:37--> 00:23:02

He said, I complain to my insignificance in the eyes of the people. He didn't say their contempt for me. He said how whiny Allah nest my insignificance so stunning statement. Yeah, our hammer, right. He mean, look at the name he calls by, oh most merciful, those who show mercy uninterrupted mustafi You are the Lord of the oppressed.

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

You are the like he's, he's clearly most of that here. And he says, You are the Lord of the oppressed. What uninterrupted and you are my Lord. He didn't put himself in the oppress. He just said Well, I'm terrible as if he's not one of them. Like, I'm not complaining, I'm oppressed. He said, You're the Lord of the oppressed. What interrupt me.

00:23:25--> 00:23:31

So he doesn't put himself in there. He's saying, you know, the, the most of them. Were interrupting

00:23:32--> 00:24:17

it Amanda Killarney, who are you going to lead me to? He's saying you brought me to these people. Are you going to need me to these people? It I've got eaten yet the gentleman from these distant people that will treat me terribly. I mean it I do when Maluku angry or to an enemy, Maluku Omri, look at the tauheed here, he's not seeing the people as having some kind of power outside of our laws power, Allah homematic and move to Denmark adventitia. That's his mom. His mom is he sees everything from Allah, all the tribulations that are coming in the dunya. He's not seeing Oh, these evil people, these evil ku fog, these evil people that have conquered our land, you know, he's

00:24:17--> 00:24:22

saying unto him alecto memory, right. So then he says

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

in them you can become a demon earlier for about as long as you're not upset with me as long as you're not angry at me. I'm not I'm not bothered by level Valley. The Arab say no Valley, it means I'm not giving it any consideration. So all these tribulations that he's being afflicted by, he's saying, no Valley as long as you're not upset with me. And then he says what I can offer you a ticket on Saturday. But well being is is it's more comfortable.

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

It's more comfortable.

00:25:05--> 00:25:24

Oh to be naughty mochica the Ashoka huruma I seek refuge in the light of your countenance by which the entire creation is illuminated all the darknesses are removed. Well slow How are they doing? Well, and everything in the dunya and the after vive is made right

00:25:26--> 00:25:32

minun tunzi Ravi other worker that you should reveal your wrath to me

00:25:33--> 00:26:21

and he suffered Luca or I should be enveloped with your anger Lega tadoba you can censor me until you're pleased you can censor me You can say whatever you want to meet until you're pleased that we ask for forgiveness that could have us asking forgiveness had to tolerate that until you're pleased when are held up with a pool water in the villa. That's how we ended towhee lahainaluna vainio event and maaseiah What are our thoughts in the bigger I cannot be prevented from doing maaseiah without your help and I cannot be consistent in my obedience without your help. So that's really important. And then so in that situation there Sagar and sugar, Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you had a

00:26:21--> 00:27:09

dinner and it was pure wasabi, Morabito tequila, like the patient and enjoying colossal besar you enjoying one another to be patient. And then Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in the manual for Sabina at around the lady he said, You are going to be given without any reckoning your patients in that stain on the somebody will set up all of the verses in the Quran, in the Lomonosov it in all these sayings or to remind us of this. And then the second mom is sugar. And sugar is it's gratitude. it's higher than patients in the feed Attica. liquidity is so bad in Chicago, he prefaces that verse in Surah Ibrahim with the verses about Moses, reminding them about Pharaoh and then at

00:27:09--> 00:27:42

the end of it he says with another person the entire continent is a daisy then upon that if your patient if you're grateful, Allah will increase up that is preceded by him reminding them about the Quran that was a lie I didn't even document it for now frown remember the blessing of Allah when he saved you from the people from your Sumo console that I that we use when alchemy is definitely in his? Will he Danica Bella min Ravi Kumar Avi, in that is a tradition from your Lord. That's tauheed it wasn't for our own.

00:27:43--> 00:28:07

Muslims have lost this understand for some of my own conclusions. They don't read the Quran. If they read it, they don't lay it to the bone. And that's all my only conclusion about it. Because all they're in the book. And when you have that perspective, Allah is going to give you victory just like he gave the prophesies and victory that is an amazing draft because that was his so he What does he not have a Zani in there? Yeah, he puts tauheed with teleco.

00:28:08--> 00:28:54

tauheed and tawakkol are together. Because if you don't have that tauheed you won't and then when a bliss wears his oath that he is, you know that I'm going to sit in wait on your straight path. That South African Mr. Kim, right and then he's going to at the end Norman Bailey it one healthier more and many more. inshallah. What did you do? I thought of him check it in. So he's going to wait in line and what does he say? You won't find the majority of them grateful. So that's his strategy to make you all ingrates which is the real meaning of Kafeel. a disbeliever is an ingrate, and that's a pleasing strategy because he was ungrateful. So he wants to reduce everybody to a state of

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

gratitude,

00:28:56--> 00:29:24

which is tragic. Right? So, but anyway, the tribulations are all, you know, they're all part of the dunya and we have to remember that this is you know, Hickam of misuse at via Then how come at them and to see Jeff, for the monitor CG, you know, like, he says, In the one fetish, that all these tribulations are from a wise creator, woven with a wise hand, the warp and woof of which come together.

00:29:26--> 00:29:50

Right, so you have to see that, that it's all in Allah's plan. And just like the and can't see that pattern on the carpet, we can't see the plan of a law but everybody's in the plan of a law, young Boomer young put a level of federal magazine there in the plan of Allah, all of their strategies are in the plan of Allah, and everything will come to pass that was meant to come to pass.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

The next thing I want to talk about was Ramadan was a time when people go back to the book of Allah. Now you're obviously

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

There's not a supernatural facilitation, and I'll be the first to admit this because we all know that something happens the moment that this amazing you can feel it.

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

You know, somebody said,

00:30:15--> 00:30:33

Imagine that daughter, he told me, I think it was no it was somebody from Chicago, Tony, their daughter said, I felt like I had this really tight embrace from Ramadan. And the moment that he came, I felt that embrace was released.

00:30:35--> 00:30:57

So there's a supernatural event with Ramadan. But the point of Ramadan is, if you had a connection to Allah, it's with with the Quran, it's to strengthen that connection. If you didn't have one, it's to it's to reconnect you with the book of Allah. But the purpose is not to let today suddenly, that connection is over until the next Ramadan.

00:30:59--> 00:31:29

At least if it's in Ramadan, that's a blessing for some people that are hungry, that they're still connected, because a lot of people that aren't connected anymore, they don't even fast. I mean, it's the first time in Muslim history, I think, where you're you're seeing this phenomenon. It's really quite tragic. And I always tell people, don't be the link that breaks the chain. There's people here from Muslim countries, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, different places, that India Pakistan,

00:31:30--> 00:31:39

over 1000 years. That's why you're Muslim. Because for 1000 years, for 14, in some cases, 1400 years.

00:31:40--> 00:32:03

Each generation transmitted this truth to the next generation. They don't think they didn't have tribulation, they have plagues, they lost their whole families, they had wars, they had the Mongols, they had the Christians, that people have their tongues cut out for teaching around in under the sea. That's a historical fact. They had they had they were tortured in the Inquisition, all those things.

00:32:04--> 00:32:11

And so now because things were a little difficult, you're going to leave the D.

00:32:12--> 00:32:16

So behind Allah, I mean, Shame on those people,

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

for betraying all of their ancestors because

00:32:21--> 00:32:59

I guarantee you there's nobody who was born will suffer from coming from long like they didn't have Odia in their family, I have no doubt. And those only I did not bring people into the world for them to be profligate for them to forget their Lord to free to forget their Creator. So that's really important. So come back to the book of Allah, the prophets of Allah it was set him said in a hadith that email Muslim relates that Abu huraira told us that MeSH term appointment fee baiting and beauty that that no group of Muslims gets together in a house when the houses of Allah yet saloon ecchi tabel mouth they recite the book of Allah. But then look, we enter Dar asuna, who baina home and

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

they study it together.

00:33:02--> 00:33:44

And this is very important, had the, because we've abandoned this practice, people have personal recitation, but the idea of actually coming together to reflect on the book of Allah and study it together in the Knesset, alima sukeena to washa. Tomorrow Rama will have Fetterman Malacca, you will be enveloped in Sakina. There's a hadith where a man had a horse, one of the Sahaba had a horse, and he was he tied his horse with the Hubble, and then he was reciting it. And it was very hot, you know, Arabia, and a cloud came Sahaba. He called it Sahaba came and covered him and the horse was like looking up and moving. Right. So he went to the province and he told them this is a tough

00:33:44--> 00:34:26

opponent today. And he said, How did he sukeena at 10 00 and appear after Quran? This is the sukeena that comes in the recitation of a port on the province I sent him said that he omert our economy and Mr. Nene was an extra worker and I was commanded to be from the Muslims and to recite the Koran. Why did you put those two together? The Quran puts those two together, that you were commanded to be a Muslim and to recite the Quran, so don't be the people that allow the promises and complained about in Amita Hello, Heather Purana Majora, my people have abandoned this book. And our halifa says he's the most generous, he says at least read it twice a year.

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

So you're not from those. But in America, he says once a month, that if you're not doing it once a month, it's like you've abandoned it. He actually says that's had the Edna and then yeah, and I'm trying this you I normally I wouldn't do this, like when I taught the class, because you all of you are, I know you're strong people so it's not gonna overwhelm you. But for other people. If I was speaking to a public audience, I would not say Can I just get them to read like a paragraph a day, or half a page because you have to know

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

Know your audience and you say I read a juice a day. And then they don't do anything, because they feel overwhelmed. That's part of the problem in the Muslim world is you have these moms on the nim bars that are constantly berating the believers. And then they feel like that, or they completely associate

00:35:19--> 00:36:00

the dean and hello so the person doesn't have Dean has no hope, instead of recognize that there's people without Islam that have good, excellent moral character. But in the Muslim world, they always conflate the two even though the prophesized them separated them, man jakka You're the dean who wasn't an oboe. He didn't say Dino who fucked up assuming that holdup is in there? He said, Do you know what hula hoop because they they're not they they're not. Together. There's people that have Dean and no Hulu and there's people that have hooked up and no Dean and the best people are the people that have Dean and Hello. That's why he said if they come then marry them, so we do home like

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

marry them your children.

00:36:02--> 00:36:30

So that's really important to do that, well that couldn't fall off even into home and they and they will be mentioned by Allah Subhana with the ANA, right. So this Quran that Allah says maharatna menchi Allah didn't leave anything out in the book. Right? It's tafsir and equally say it's it will clarify everything. So this is really really important to do to to get back to the book of Allah subhana wa tafsir. Konishi

00:36:32--> 00:36:35

want to be on any fully shaded so so that's really important. And then

00:36:37--> 00:36:48

finally about the Quran, in the famous Hadith that you know, he realized he said well Parana puja Lega, or lake, this Quran is going to be a puja for you or against you.

00:36:49--> 00:37:05

So make it easier for you. And the way you do that is to keep it with you to recite it, and then to apply it as best you can. And Bukhara and Emraan will come on the day of judgment and actually they will fight for your salvation.

00:37:07--> 00:37:19

As I had to had Johnny answer hidden in the previous item said, If you recite a Bopara in your house ship, I will not come into your house for three days.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

Two and a half. It takes about an hour and a half.

00:37:25--> 00:38:08

So shutdown will come into your house. So if you're feeling something going on in your house, recite bacara and they'll leave they have to leave. They can't stay. So it's really important also wulc is really important to post I said 330 is I wish was in the heart of every believer of water quality via the animal. reciting that every night. The bone size him said it will come in your grave and it will defend you. If you recite every night, the prophet These are called poetical Koran, Sakura Sheltie. These are the striking things in the Quran that will fight for you. The proposal I sent him said no one will read is of course the after every prayer, except there will be nothing between him

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

agenda except death.

00:38:11--> 00:38:37

So these are all gifts from, from our Deen. So it's really important to do that. So and then the prompts that couldn't unless you have to bet for value enough. So for more tips on how to move that over, everyone will arise every every single day. You're either saving yourself or destroying yourself. There's a choice. It was great philosophers said every moment is an ethical moment.

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

Because there's always a choice in every moment to do the right thing, or to do the wrong thing, every moment of your life.

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

So that's May Allah subhanho wa Taala give you all the prophets, I said, I'm said that

00:38:53--> 00:39:02

in a hadith that's in the masana is going to be shaper. He says, albedo either 2d or feet tabouleh SRB. And he

00:39:03--> 00:39:51

is a house in which the book of Allah is recited will actually expand for the family. And this is peep, you have kings that feel constricted in their palaces will lie. I guarantee you there are kids that every night he had to sleep in a different place every night, because he was worried about assassination. So you have people that they're in this vast expanse, and they don't, they don't. And then when when when he said there's a hadith in, in our tradition where Isa Jesus went when when they they were burying somebody, and somebody said, ma be up on the cover, you know, how constricted is the cover, and he said, for the believer, it's like the womb of his mother. The womb expands as

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

you grow.

00:39:54--> 00:39:58

Right. So so the bigger your soul gets, the bigger your grade is going to be.

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

That's the reality of it. And for others, it's going to be real construction. These are all truths about religion. And then he said some lies will cathar a pharaoh who you will see much good in that house from reciting the Quran much good in that house, you will get what you need.

00:40:17--> 00:40:59

Well, how about one melodica and then the angel one visit because the angels according to just like, we see the lights in the night sky. There's traveling angels that look for places of dicker wherever, there's places where the Puranas recited, they see them like we see the stars, and they go to those places. And when there's a hot thumb, the 70,000 calm, you're just flooded with them. So these are great gifts to have. They're real. This is all real. It's all real. It's not made up. This is not mythology. This is real. We're just not aware of it we're just with and the more present you get the more aware you're going to be of these things. And then he said what that at the end he said

00:40:59--> 00:41:46

will be to either, LEM you traffic's terrible la da be rockin the halo will have burrata Shelton, look at all the you know just the shell thing of like people watch films of shelving, literally shell thing that, you know, they fill their house. With filth. There's people watching shale theme for decades in their homes. Like it's it's amazing what's going on out there all of the sickness. So make your house a house of light, not a house of darkness, a house that if the prophet SAW lies and came just imagine one night you get a knock at the door, and you open it and it's the messenger will love visiting you just imagine if you invited him into your house if he would see anything that

00:41:46--> 00:42:10

would troubled him. I mean, just think about your house is at a place where you would feel comfortable bringing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu his sin in. And then the the one who recites on the Prophet said that a man who has no puranam is like a derelict house that has no no one residing in. And he said that on the day Yama Pamela will say

00:42:12--> 00:42:17

like, read and rise and rewire our tepee read and rise

00:42:18--> 00:42:35

in them and zillah ticker and de la he asked him, like your place with Allah is going to be and the last thing that that that you asked me is the last idea that you read. So that's very important. And then finally, I just want to say

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

that

00:42:39--> 00:42:55

death comes to all of us. And we don't we didn't no one knows when death will come but it will come by all of us have an appointment, we know. Basically, it's going to be within 7890 maybe 100, maybe 110.

00:42:57--> 00:43:13

But it's coming. And it could come just when you're young, it could people we lost people, people we loved we lost them young, beautiful people, we lost in accidents and other things are from sickness, death will come. And

00:43:14--> 00:43:28

all people love life. Even rarely, suicide is actually much rarer than one would think it would be. If you think about the type of suffering on this planet, and the type of things people go through. I mean, there's and people that commit suicide.

00:43:36--> 00:43:38

They tend to be extremely sensitive people

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

that

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

they just get overwhelmed.

00:43:52--> 00:44:21

And the prohibitions are really strong. Because you have to be strong in the dunya. You can't let this place tear you down. You have to be strong. This is a place for strong people. This isn't a place for weary hearted people. This is a place for strong people, and the thing that will strengthen you as faith and that's why suicide usually comes when people I mean, there's mental illnesses that Allah inshallah will forgive those people.

00:44:22--> 00:44:32

But suicide usually comes when there's despair. They despair. And I'll tell you one story, there's a man who does suicide prevention all over this country.

00:44:34--> 00:44:37

He decided to kill himself.

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

And he went to the Golden Gate Bridge.

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

And he said that if anybody asked him how he was doing, on the way he wouldn't kill himself. That's what he told himself. So he's on a bus and it gets to the last stop where the bridges and the bus driver looked down and he was clearly

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

respond. And he said, Look, buddy that rides over, you need to get off. So he went, and he jumped off the bridge. And he said the moment he's one of the few people that survived that bridge, very few, over 300 people traditionally killed themselves on the bridge every year.

00:45:17--> 00:45:22

He survived, but he said the moment he jumped, he said, this is a mistake.

00:45:24--> 00:45:37

The one and I think that's what every single person who commits suicide will will say, this is a mistake. When he landed, he broke almost every bone in his body, a seal came

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

and held him up.

00:45:51--> 00:45:52

Because it wasn't time to go.

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

A CEO came and held him up.

00:45:58--> 00:46:10

And and just held him until the life of God got there. You know, the patrol. And they just told him, You have no idea how lucky you are.

00:46:12--> 00:46:15

Because we put dead people out all the time.

00:46:17--> 00:46:28

And he realized how lucky he was. And that's why what he does for the rest of his life, is to try to prevent people from killing themselves because of the gift of life.

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

But also,

00:46:33--> 00:46:37

death is a gift and the Prophet size and said, and more to

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

death is the gift of the believer. It's again,

00:46:44--> 00:46:47

one of them send that alone and monta Moulton in the hood.

00:46:48--> 00:46:52

The higher turn Haha, I don't think death

00:46:53--> 00:46:56

is death. It is lightened

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

and it is your heart's desire.

00:47:02--> 00:47:18

That rock calm hashmatullah multi family in the intercom Don't be afraid of this death that's going to force itself on you. Because it's just moving from this place to another place

00:47:19--> 00:47:31

for them and I'm fuzzy calm tops here on hacker IANA. So throw off these mortal coils and see the truth as an eyewitness.

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

That's, that's dead. And

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

when when Socrates went to

00:47:44--> 00:47:46

you know, they were going to his trial.

00:47:48--> 00:47:57

They said, What do you think your punishment should be? He said, You should give me free meals for the rest of my life. Because I'm doing the state of great service by bothering everybody.

00:48:00--> 00:48:08

And then he's when they send him to death. He said, I'm not worried because on my way, my spirit guide told me that death is a good thing.

00:48:10--> 00:48:25

And he said we're afraid of death because we don't know what's coming after. And that's where the fear of death comes. And then finally, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and remember everything was more difficult for him in this dunya including his death

00:48:27--> 00:48:31

there's a hadith in our Buhari that when

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

it was fuckin abuse Allah said that it was really heavy for him was on a shelf would come and great distress was upon him. The Allah taught him to his daughter was with him on the road and she said

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

what crop up?

00:48:53--> 00:48:54

What the stress Oh my father.

00:48:57--> 00:49:00

And he replied, Lisa EBT card boom

00:49:03--> 00:49:06

there's no more distress after today for your father.

00:49:11--> 00:49:25

He said for Katya the agenda about open? Yeah, but Jonathan for those who might work Yeah, but he had a GB of tena for the Medusa. So then she said, Oh my father.

00:49:27--> 00:49:48

You answered your your Lord's Prayer. When he called you, oh, my father, the highest paradises where your head, oh my father gibreel will announce your death. So it's a great blessing and we should guard our lives and protect them and just feel grateful to be alive, but we shouldn't

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

because it's also a great blessing. So May Allah Subhana Allah insha Allah make us all believers and make the last words we say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

My opponent probably had was Stopford.
