00:00:02--> 00:00:40

salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam opelika ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine, we're going to learn today we will be going over the 18th Jews in sha Allah will be looking at two of the stories. One of them we will go into a bit more detail but even in lab 18 Joseph begins with su lateral movement on a larger level Allah makes mention of know Allah His Salaam in the beginning. Thereafter he touches or he mentions in brief, the story of Musa alayhis salaam and some messages.

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

Salam Alaikum alaikum Salam Alaikum?

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

How are you shift

00:00:52--> 00:01:10

from the Rila and Villa hamdulillah. We hope everybody else was also following we hope they're all well and during the month of Ramadan, getting ready for the last 10 days shuttle is yes. Now the last 10 days are on us. Very close.

00:01:11--> 00:01:55

Very, very close. I think whilst we close to the last 10 days, it's important to mention that in these last 10 days later to condo as we know, and Allah knows best but the more correct opinion is that any of these days could be Laila to cuddle up nights or even nights and the reason why we say even nice also is because in some habits which are very authentic. In fact, when we look at these authentic heavy if we find the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at his time literally occurred on one occasion, as in Sahih Bukhari on the 21st. So it didn't occur on the 27th of the 29th. It was on the 25th, in some heavy is mentioned also in Sahih Bukhari 2030. Other a headache, it's mentioned

00:01:55--> 00:02:32

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam authentic look for it on the 27th 29th. And in some Hadith, he says that when there's seven days remaining, or five days remaining, now, when you look at this, if the month is full, and there's five days remaining, then you've got an even day, and if the month is full, and you've got if the month is not full, 29 days, and you've got five days remaining, and that's usually an odd day. So it could be on any of these days. So it's important for us to know, you know, some people they wait for a little kind of thinking is on the 27th only, and it could have passed on the 21st

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

Yes, well, well, I I've always been under the impression that

00:02:37--> 00:02:43

there is a possibility it's on any night, but there's more likelihood on the 27th Is that true?

00:02:44--> 00:03:32

There are effects speak about that more likely 27 Some say more likely 29. But also from these authentic hadith we see the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his time when he lived. It also occurred on the 21st So yeah, Allah knows best it could be any of those days and we should try our best remember there's certain things that have been hidden from us for a reason. So for example, the hour on Friday way a person who is making dua is to is accepted remember, this hour doesn't really refer to 60 minutes as we know it an hour means a period of time in the context of the headache. So when is that hour? Is it just before us? Or is it when my mom goes on the member is

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

more than 40 different opinions and one should try his best even when it comes to the mate we know that there is an hour or period of time we do is accepted so sometimes these periods of time have been hidden away from us or we don't know 100% when they are and we are not sure about them. So that you know it's it's fair for everybody to try their best not only know that you know what, at five o'clock or on the 27th it's you know, the little paddles so that's the day I'll do my bad and all other days I would leave

00:04:05--> 00:04:11

Yes, Yes, that's true. We should keep looking out for all the night and try and

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

make it come alive like he says, with different evident etc

00:04:19--> 00:04:47

panelboards Allah to make us from those who make the most of that night driven and today we've got the 18 to juice Allah Allah Allah Allah He speaks about no Halle his Salaam in the very beginning the first few pages we find a legend Oh Allah speaks about the art or the ship that no Halle Salaam was ordered to build. And then he tells him first look fee has been pulled in Zoho j in his name, basically telling mohalla his salon to take from

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

to take from you know the pace male and female Could it be all the animals whatever it may be imagine the violin ordered him to take help of everything.

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

Male and female, I think what's interesting day is how, you know Allah, Allah, Allah orders him to take this male and this female in order for this life to be preserved. So, you find that for those who say that these were all animals that he took male and female, look at how, you know, an abbey of Allah is being ordered to take these animals on board because the flood is going to come. And after this flood, you know, it subsides and everything, at least these animals can live. And they would reproduce even in lab and they would carry on. So I think that is a is a great sign to ponder over how Allah He created everything in male and female and how it's important for us to preserve this

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

life, human life as well as you know, when it comes to the animals when it comes to what we allowed to keep, etc.

00:05:56--> 00:06:09

Yes, that maintains the balance of life I think all together as well. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala created them for a reason and Subhanallah that's an amazing point that was derived there by yourself.

00:06:11--> 00:06:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in her indoor Judo region that when Fatah Basu he had he, he's not but a man possessed with madness. So wait concerning a time for him, meaning wait for him to die. So they were literally accusing him of being mad. No, Holly has salat wa salam and they were saying wait for him to die, it doesn't matter. Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause him to pass and then you will be read this person. So

00:06:41--> 00:07:22

what's amazing is that they were waiting for him to die, yet their time was before his. So we should never really assume that we know that we will live longer than another human being only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows who will live longer and we should never make a bad deal for a person or wish them bad in their lives. Because look at this the VI of Allah subhanho wa Taala is being saved by Allah some kind of water Allah and the diet if they were waiting for his death metal Basu he had to him until the time comes when he will be gone and his demise will be you know, have come. So I think that's something that we can learn from.

00:07:23--> 00:08:04

There is something we can definitely learn from you don't sometimes we waiting for everything else to happen to everybody else and then it happens to us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us? Yes, obviously definitely. We can run away from it. But we're talking also about calamities, we're talking about difficulties waiting for it to before this person but you know the last or the next thing you know that it's happened to you. Moving on we go to Sula to know the solar have very amazing surah Allah Allah Allah mentioned different things and no means the light is a lot of can mentioned in the solar halaal. And more importantly, the story of if is mentioned in the surah where

00:08:04--> 00:08:46

I share about their loved one who was accused of doing something she didn't do. And this carried on for a while. And it's been mentioned in detail not only in the Quran, but also in the Sunnah authentic hadith in Sahih Bukhari and other books, we find the larger Lola, he addresses this issue remember, I shall be allowed one hand as they went out in grief, when she went out with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam on one of these journeys for battle. On the way back, she lost her necklace. And you know, she remained looking for it. Those days, the women used to be carried in a hold edge on the camera, whoa, that is like a small housing. So they would lift this and put it on

00:08:46--> 00:09:26

the camera. And I show the loved one who says at the time that the women or the girls were very, you know, light, whether you carried this whole edge and she was in it or not, you wouldn't really know. So they had put this on her camera and they went not knowing that I shadow the law on how we're still very looking for this necklace that she had misplaced. Eventually the army left, and she thought they would come to find her. So she went well. She fell off to sleep. Eventually she says that she woke up by you know, the tech beer or Julia, have one of us have another loved one or the loved one. And she says, you know, he didn't talk to me. He didn't do anything I had covered up and

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

he just put the camera down. And I wrote on it basically as we know, after the armies would pass and it's common practice with any big group. Believe one two people behind to check that nobody's lost anything misplaced anything, nobody's left anything behind. So the Sahabi was one of those after he saw that I shall be alive and conversely, immediately without saying any words doing anything. He put the camera down and he and she jumped on and they eventually caught up with the army When they reached the army. It was you know during the bright daylight and people

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Who saw them? especially those who had mischief. Those who had dirty hearts immediately started, you know, making stories about I shall be Allah on her saying that she did this and this happened, etc. When I shall be Allah says they reached Medina, you know, she settled and she says that I found something a little bit different that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not like he usually is with me, he would come, he would ask me, he would carry on. So the amazing thing or the sad thing is, I shall be Allah on herself. Didn't know what people were talking about Jesus, I just noticed something strange, but I didn't know. She says after a while when she went out with one of

00:10:44--> 00:11:04

the heavier they were going out like, Okay, this Sahabi tells her that miss one of her relatives, you know, she makes a dua against him, literally. So I share what the law says, How can you say that? And this Sahabi says that, haven't you heard what he said?

00:11:05--> 00:11:46

She then informs I shall be a loved one. How about the whole story and she then realizes that everybody's been slandering her and talking about those who are talking and saying, she did this, she did this. And that's why, you know, she hasn't found that kindness with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When she asks to go to, you know, the house of her parents, and she's talking with her mother and her father, eventually she says that this carries on and it was difficult and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just asked a little bit about her and carry on. And Allah lo Allah eventually, after so many days reveals verses to show that I shall be Allah and I did not do

00:11:46--> 00:12:22

anything wrong. He also reprimands, those who ended up speaking about things they didn't know. This is a very, you know, important story for us to read through, learn through there's a lot of lessons we derived as muslimeen. And more importantly, we see the status of it shahabi Allah one has she was free from doing any wrongdoing. Allah subhanho wa Taala himself from above the seven heavens. He is the one who, you know, gave her this Bala this freedom and said she is free from doing anything wrong. And we these are verses of Oxfam that we have to believe in.

00:12:24--> 00:12:54

Yes, absolutely. You know, this is something where we can really focus on this issue because there are people who speak bad about who say that which is wrong. We never ever speak bad about it shall not be a loved one. And in fact, we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses regarding innocence. So we should never speak bad about the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam who's ultimately our mother gunship here you had a point.

00:12:55--> 00:13:35

Yes, I think there's a few points in this surah Firstly, Allah Allah, Allah COVID surah to know, as we mentioned, the light you know, he mentioned so many sins that a person if they commit, you find that natural light will be taken away. He also mentioned that he himself is know Allah knows somehow that he will. He also says a woman lamea jalila hula who more on another one we know whereby Allah doesn't grant this light to his understanding this light in the heart, whether it's apparent light also Allah knows best with Allah doesn't grant this to they won't find any light. Getting back to the story of FYI shall be a loved one who was accused allegedly of Allah begins by saying in Malawi,

00:13:35--> 00:14:20

Niger will be if girls are coming come later Sabu shaka laka laka during this difficulty, hard time, Allah Allah Allah is giving glad tidings and saying that you know this that occurred this whole you know, whatever happened this accusation, this slander, I don't think it's something bad for you rather it's something good for you because through things like this, yes, there are difficulties Allah raises people. You know, people are given that innovation look at I shall be a loved one. Yes, it was a difficult time for a long time. But after that she's elevated to a status way she wasn't at before. Before that there was no Quran revealed when it came to I shall be a loved one and now they

00:14:20--> 00:14:52

are versus review when it comes to eyeshadow their loved one. So I think it's important to life lesson we take from this is that sometimes you may go through difficulty for not what you see as no apparent reason you didn't do something wrong. It's just people you know trying to get at you. It happened to the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam it happened to the Sahaba yet and we should look at it yes it will be difficult she mentioned how difficult it was but at the end of the day, inshallah this will pass and this is also for you to be elevated even in life.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

This Allah subhanho wa Taala also says if terracotta will be unseen at cold water cooler

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

Why he couldn't marry Sara can be hearing that whilst you were seeing it with your tongues, and you had accepted this as something normal with your tongues. And you were saying that which you had no knowledge of that which you had no knowledge of what Assa buena Hina and you thought that this is something easy when we're in the lobby of him yet it is great with Allah subhanho wa Taala and what I find amazing is that they were speaking about the honor of eyeshadow Viola and how the people who are spreading this rumor was speaking about the honor of eyeshadow Viola and her yet

00:15:38--> 00:16:21

we have the same situation and scenario today where people speak about other other people's honor. Hey, you know that person is doing this and doing that. Don't do this. Because what a testimonial Hey, you know, you think it's something easy, something light, well who are in de la who are lead, yet it is very great with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes you you see someone and the walking on the street and you make a comment, a bad comment about that person. Don't do that, because you don't know where they are with Allah subhanho wa Taala what they stay to do is test the status is how the connection is with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And at the same time, you know, the fact that they are

00:16:21--> 00:17:03

dressed that way doesn't mean that they are that type of a person. So it's important for us to derive such benefits because you find that this is normal today in society, they use words like loose person or you know, loose human. This is not something that a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala does, regardless of how that person is dressed or the way they are going about the life. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to guide us and to guide them as well. But at the same time, we don't make statements of this nature, it's actually very a grievous sin to do something like this. Yes, and even when we look at the story of it a lot more and I imagine for those who saw it they saw

00:17:03--> 00:17:42

something which they thought apparent they came to their own conclusions. It's only because of what he after that that we ourselves can see today. The punishment these people were promised if they didn't make tober also what actually occurred Allah Allah Allah says Lola in semir, tomo vanilla me know now tell me not to be unforeseen him. However, when something like that happens, one of the interpretations give the muslimeen or the believers not think of it when it came to this themselves and think of you know, when it comes to themselves, they wouldn't do such a thing. What about eyeshadow, viola is mentioned that a yoke alongside Ella Viola and he told his wife that would you

00:17:42--> 00:18:11

do such a thing? And she said, Of course not. And then he says that so what do you think of eyeshadow Viola on her, she's even better. So sometimes if we're in fact, all the time, if we want to give ourselves a personal one and think the best of ourselves, then it's important also, when it comes to others, especially there's nothing you know, concrete. Yes, you might have seen something and come up to your own conclusion. You might have seen two people, but you not allow to accuse anybody of doing anything.

00:18:13--> 00:18:55

Yes, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala later on even says Lola jell O Allah he arbella to show her that if they had only come with four witnesses for that particular action, so how are you then judging, you know, based on flimsy rumors that are just passing around, and people are just deciding for themselves and passing the rumor on, very dangerous. And I think when something of this nature comes to us, we should cut it off there and tell the people that listen, this is wrong, we shouldn't be doing this type of thing. Or we shouldn't be passing on this type of information, etc. Even if the rumors were true, for example, we wouldn't want to pass that on because Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:55--> 00:19:25

also talks about how in the lead in a Buddha and Tisha alpha heisha to fillerina among those who love that immorality spread amongst those who believe no matter when anyone for dunya when alpha for them is a painful punishment in this dunya and in the NFL. So, this is something that we really shouldn't be engaged in, we should try to preserve the honor of people and avoid the you know, letting out of the sins or exposing of their sins.

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

You know, you mentioned such an important point and in the story, there are so many points we can derive a lot of dimensions if the opponent will be elsina taken, he says if canacona will be cinetic waterpolo NaVi FYI Kamala so that's what I said when I was 18 as you explained the verse that you know, people want to say things with their tongues and you know, they haven't even they don't have evidence they don't know what they saying yes, this may be talking about it shall be a loved one and this specific scenario. However, we even when it comes to our day to day lives, you know, certain comments

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

We throw out to judgments we ask May Allah protect us And forgive us but sometimes we just say certain things just like that, oh this guy's like this and that person is like this without any evidence yet in the verses after that Allah says, Well Allah is similar to mu to Maya corner Lana and attack Allah behavior when you have this, it was befitting for you or you should have said that you know what? We shouldn't be talking about this some Hannukah have done and now the missus big and great fabrication and a life in Sahih al Bukhari isobella one have very long Hadith, which is narrating the whole story to say exactly what happens towards the end. She says that Zainab bint The

00:20:40--> 00:21:23

judge will be a lover and one of the wives of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks about Asia, what do you think? Did you see anything? And she says, I follow somebody who Abbasali you know, I will protect my hearing and my eyesight and my tongue from saying anything. And I shall be a loved one who says because of her water, because of this way, she prevented herself. She was the one who was saved. She was one of the people who were saved, where others Danny Halak, FEMA and hallak meaning and they fell down with people will punish them, it became apparent that they had made up a lie so it's important for us to protect our

00:21:23--> 00:21:48

tongues. Don't just pass everything around. In other Hadith a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that these are great punishment for the one who tells a lie. And on top of it, this lie reaches you know, the tablet will be fat. It reaches everywhere, and especially with social media today, you you know, one message, and the whole world knows about something which you may have made a

00:21:50--> 00:22:30

lot of work. That's some serious warnings you there from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he also mentions if telephone, OBL cinetic amuro with your tongues, that's something that interesting, why does he talk about the tongues because you know, the wagging of your tongue is very easy for you to do but the detriment that can come from that is great. What as a Buddha, you know, you thought it was easy, because to speak is easy, it's easy to pass on a message to just say anything. To forward a message. It's very easy. So with your tongue, what you say, it can be very easy and simple, but what who are in the law, how they met with Allah subhanho wa Taala it's very great. So I think the

00:22:30--> 00:22:41

tongue also is something that we really need to harness in and think before we say something, you know, it's easy to say something that can cause your own destruction and detriment as well.

00:22:43--> 00:23:19

Very, very, very important for all of us and for what we may have said before my last panel with Allah forgive us, and grant us the ability to you know, harness and keep this tongue where we only say that which is benefit, that which is of benefit. That's why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that, you know, when it comes to speaking, either say something which is good or keep quiet, we need to train ourselves. Sometimes we in a conversation or in a place where we're not really saying anything good, but when either saying something wrong or haram, which is saying something that's permissible, this this this, however, you find a lot of times when you carry on

00:23:19--> 00:23:55

with this shape and and comes, you know, he whispers whether it's to yourself or somebody else, and he, you end up bringing somebody else, you end up talking about this one, especially during the month of Ramadan, you end up seeing that you waste your time you waste your deeds, you know, you just keep quiet. If you're in a place where there's so many people, you can't really say much at least You keep quiet, don't add to this fire if you're able to, you know, excuse yourself, excuse yourself and move or if you're able to actually tell them that you know what what you're saying here is wrong. We shouldn't be talking about that. Then that is a higher level altogether.

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

Yes, absolutely. She has not.

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

There was one point that I wanted to raise about where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks. And he says what I tell you will probably be in Kumasi and those who are out of favor and wealth. They should not make an oath to Lynne Cobell eternal Misaki and you too will informel Misaki no hygiene ifisa we realize that they may give the people and those who are close to them and the mohajir lien in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala Well, yeah, all your sparkle and let them forgive each other and pardon each other. Ella to hipbone a young fear Allah Who do you not want Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you not love for Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive you. So will love her for Rahim. And Allah

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving and most merciful. You see, they say that a robot can also do karate a loved one who used to spend on one of his relatives and this relative in the

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

Speaking bad about his own daughter. So he stopped and he said, Look, I won't spend on this man again. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus saying that the people of honor and the people of wealth, they shouldn't actually say such type such things. So it's important for us to realize that what other people do, it's, it's not in our control, we can't control what they do. But we can control what we are doing. And that is if you're doing something good to a person, yes, it's normal and natural sometimes for you to get angry when they've done something against you. But if they're good people, and they've done something wrong, forgive them and let them let it go. And Allah

00:25:45--> 00:26:30

subhanho wa Taala will forgive you Allah to him more than a year for Allah. What do you not love that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives you. I think what's of importance also in this is to remember that sometimes the wrong thing that they may have done to us, it's possible that we can also do it to another human being. So the fact that they're human, they've slipped up they've made a mistake, in forgive and Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you. And you know, sleeping with this heart at ease, where you hold no grudges against anyone is something of absolute, you know, benefit to a human being not only benefit, but you will find yourself really and truly wealthy within your heart where

00:26:30--> 00:26:44

you just have a peace with everyone. I have nothing against anyone I hold nothing. We make dua for you, the people who hate you and carry on and Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you so much contentment and peace in your life

00:26:45--> 00:27:23

is most definitely as you mentioned, that this peace and contentment you have to let go business you know, it ends up eating you if you carry on holding on to these things. So as you mentioned, you have to let go a larger lower level forgive you and you also forgive sometimes somebody comes to you they know they've done wrong, they asking you You know what? Pardon me? Forgive me. Let's move on. Yes, we're not saying don't be careful, but you know, you can forgive still. So that's a very important point, Jeff, and there's a lot that can be mentioned when it comes to this story and the sewer in particular, look at previously we spoke about Abubakar also declared the Allahu anhu Best

00:27:23--> 00:28:00

of companions, the best person to walk the face of the earth after the messengers of the Gambia now is speaking about his daughter Isha. On the one hand, again, we must beloved to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was asked Who is the most beloved to you? And we look at this house or this family of mobile callosity Fabiola Huangpu, a house full of a man and belief. And people who are at the highest level, the whole house was, you know, they believed his father was a believer, he himself his daughter, you know, his son, and a lot of other people in his family. So it's important for us, yes, we read the Sierra.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

But also we should read about these people.

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

Yes, absolutely. We can learn so much from them. I mean, even just the story with Abubakar, also the cobia lavonne, who he starts spending on this family member of his again, it just teaches us so much and how he would free the slaves etc. You know, so panela, he was a person who had a beautiful heart, and he would he would spend of the goodness that he had.

00:28:30--> 00:29:10

Generally, you know, what's interesting is just coming to my mind now, is, let's say, somebody has spoken bad or somebody else, you know, backbiting or, you know, you said something wrong. The scholars mentioned how to, then you know, rectify this, obviously, you make, you're still far removed, whenever there's a sin to do with somebody else. It's these two things involved, because Allah has prohibited you from doing it is that part so you have to ask Allah for forgiveness. And because there is, you know, something to do between yourself, and another human being you also, will they also have to pardon you and forgive you. The scholars mentioned very interesting points, let's

00:29:10--> 00:29:51

say I've spoken bad about you, for example, they say yes, if you are able to, you know the person, you know how they are, you go to them, you apologize, and you can even tell them that you know what I said, you don't have to go in all detail, which say, you know, I spoke bad about your, on this occasion, or this happened, please forgive me, that's a way of doing it. Another way or added to that, not another way added to that you make dua for this person, ask Allah to forgive them. You know, sometimes you can do a good deed you give a sonata and intended for this person. What happens if you've spoken bad of somebody else? And you know, that if you go to this person now, you know, it

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

may cause an even bigger problem.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

And let's say I come to you and I say you know what, on such and such a day I said this about you I spoke bad about your list.

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

See, it's going to pose an even bigger problem. And you know, it will cause so much hatred between us that never existed before. Here, a few scholars mentioned that if this is the case, then yes, make a lot of dua for this person, ask Allah to forgive them, ask Allah to forgive you try and do good deeds, you know, with the intention of it being on their behalf, whether it's giving a SATA, etc. And in this case, you don't really have to go and tell them. If you don't even have to address the topic on this, you know, it just generally you say, you know, Allah forgive you, and forgive me and you carry on. Because we being practical here, there's certain times or certain people who you

00:30:42--> 00:31:06

can't address or let's say they've passed away, or they're in a place on the other side of the world where you're not going to meet them again, or you you saw somebody walking on the street, you don't know who they are, and you just threw a word at them. So it's important to mention this, I think, and this is obviously one opinion of the scholars, it makes a lot of sense. And whenever you able to actually do it in person, that's obviously better.

00:31:08--> 00:31:39

This is a very balanced opinion, I think, very, very balanced, because it explains the different scenarios and situations. So not always will you just do a good deed on their behalf or give us a data or make to avoid certain situations, maybe you have to do that where the person has passed on, there's no possibility of you addressing them, etc. Or like you mentioned, it's worse for you to go to them weight will cause a bigger problem and end up causing more problems than benefit. So I think it's a very balanced opinion.

00:31:41--> 00:32:02

And I think that's the best way to go ahead with something like this. And it's very practical as well, you know, people can really implement this in their lives. There's a sister here who was saying that she forgave the the person that she hated, and it's really given her a lot of peace, etc. May Allah subhanho wa Taala increase in that

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

shift. Is there anything else you'd like to mention when it comes to this story or this surah?

00:32:09--> 00:32:59

You know, previously, if you don't mind me going back a little bit to the story of Mohali. Salatu was Salam. We he says what oh hanaa Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're all hanaa Elite and so if we can be our union, our Hina for either on our fault and no, so Allah subhanho wa Taala says that we inspired to him, We inspired him to build the ark with our or under our observation or with our eyes, so to speak. These are the words that are used by Allah Subhana Allah with our eyes and was our inspiration. Now, here the ark was saving the meaning and the believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And previously earlier on in the 12 Jews, we find that this is the son of no Holly who Salatu

00:32:59--> 00:33:19

was Salam. And he's saying so are we ILA Jubilee are Simone even Elma I'll take refuge in a mountain that will protect me from the water and no hallein salatu salam says la sewmiriam in Emory law is no protector from the matter or Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala today. So

00:33:20--> 00:34:05

here we have a mount, that this one this son of no halides salatu salam wanted to take refuge in and we have the ark that no Halla his Salatu was Salam wanted to take refuge in and the difference between the two is that one is with the inspiration of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the other one is without the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala yet, the other one, if we look at it, it's a mountain. It's huge. It's powerful. If you look at an art, can you take a look at a mountain, you'd probably say the mountain is greater, but because the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala was with no halogen. Salatu was Salam and with the ark, then Allah

00:34:05--> 00:34:38

subhanho wa Taala saved them through this means. So means are only something very small. It's part of the equation. But Allah subhanho wa Taala can do away with those means and he can make something that is smaller, much, you know of much more benefit. If we are to actually take hold of it and to to to believe in the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to hold on to his, you know, Lifeline, so to speak,

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

ultimately is all from Allah Subhana Allah and he is the one who decides he is the one who gives, he's the one who, you know, he gives some and he doesn't give others and he's the one who saves who he wishes. And as you mentioned, this Ark, Allah Allah Allah inspired no Hallo Salaam instructed him to build it. And again, he's humble. He's

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Following the command of Allah, not like his son who says that I will just run away from it climbing up this mountain.

00:35:07--> 00:35:49

Yes, absolutely. Allah subhanho wa Taala benefit us all. I mean, I mean, children I think maybe one last point we can touch on in Surah. To know again, it's important for us to read through it. A legend the viola then speaks about you know how the believing men believing women should protect their eyesight and the way they should you know, interact and be when you your appearance, etc. last panel, what Allah speaks about that. And at the end of the verses where he's calling us to lower our gaze lower our eyesight, he says, We're to go in Allah Hey, Jamie and au Menon, Allah Allah, basically and all of you should make Toba and ask Allah Allah Allah to forgive you, if you are

00:35:49--> 00:36:29

believers, so that you may be successful, some of the scholars derived from this, that you know, the eyesight, especially those hamdulillah you can see you see things you know, you may see something that's wrong. It's it happens immediately make Toba and ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive you because here this toolbar or this order, is given to all the believers, the believing men and believing women. So if anything happens, you know what make Toba ask Allah to protect you. And remember this eyesight is you know, one of the first things when you see something that's wrong eventually, you know it works in your mind but then it carries on going throughout the body as

00:36:29--> 00:36:46

mentioned in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and eventually the private parties what you know the person actually does this evil deed or not We ask Allah to protect us it's very important to read through the surah read about this protect yourself and Allah will grant you that no and light

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

Yes, absolutely. Absolutely. 100%

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

sure if and i think that's that's all I have for today. Anything else?

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

No, just like a lock in much appreciated. I mean, we Mashallah tomorrow we move on to the 19th juice is a lot of stories in the 19th juice the evening love will touch on them. I think one interesting story in that juice is the story of the aunt with Sulaiman. alehissalaam being laughed we touch on that tomorrow. You ask Allah Allah Allah to counter some goodness, I mean, jephunneh inshallah we see you tomorrow. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
