Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al Hamdulillah Hill Billa al Amin Illa. Allah Allah Amin will begin stirring. On a Sunday on a Sunday more Aloha Tamil Gambia you will Emmanuel more serene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine. Allahu melesa hala Illa Magill tell who said hello to Jalil has either Tesla or BS zero Allah to assume Waterman bill a year will be kind of staring we thank Allah horrible is that he will Jellal for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mullah ICA, and to cause his mercy and his Sakeena to descend upon us, and to raise us with the Gambia Allahi wa Salatu was Salam, and those whom he has mentioned with
them, I mean,
indeed, we live in a time where
people are uploading their lives online. So you find that a person who is eating something puts his picture up online, or a picture of the food that he is consuming online. If he's doing something engaged with his family, perhaps he must put that online a picture or a video of what he is doing up onto the internet for everybody to see. And as a result, what has happened is more people have access to his life than ever before. So more people are viewing what he is doing. And we know that Islam teaches us about the evil eye, and how that can affect people. In fact, one ration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions this statistic that most of the deaths of my own ma
are from the evil eye. Yes, this narration according to some people, is weak. But it tells us something that the evil eye can actually send a person to his grave. So we discourage those who are uploading their lives online from doing so because the person who's seeing this may not actually wish you well, perhaps they don't have any evil feeling in their heart towards you. But as a result, they look at that their lives are not as glamorous as yours, or their life is not as glamorous as that particular moment in your life. It's not like you don't have problems. It's not like you don't have issues. But because you upload only that which is good. And naturally, so you want to paint a
beautiful picture, then people think that your life is better than it actually is. And they begin to become jealous of you. And this can affect you. Now, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us something that is profound. He taught us to sutras from the Quran, that if we are to recite them, then we will be protected from the evil eye from Shaytaan from all this evil, so we should not be focusing on the fact that if I do something in public, then perhaps someone will see me and say, Hey, that person's doing this and that person that got that car and he's got this house. We should not focus on that. Yes, we shouldn't go out or out of our way to brag to people and to put it in the
public eye for no reason whatsoever. But if it is in the public eye, we don't focus on the fact that people will be looking at it and saying, Wow, look at what he has. What we do is we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala that is what is taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would seek refuge from the evil eye from the evil of magic and from the evil that is out there until Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down to sources that are known as the protectors a little more with the time and these are the two sources that we want to briefly go through today. Because we recite them, many of us recite them in the early morning and
late at night before we go to sleep. But do you realize what we are uttering what we are saying? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will or will there will be a Bill fell after me. Shed Nima ha while ago. Say I seek refuge in the Lord the creator of the daybreak the Lord of the daybreak I seek refuge in Him from what from the evil that he has created. You see Allah subhanho wa Taala says the Lord of Daybreak why? Because at daybreak or just before the time is known as Sahil and this is the time at which we eat our Soho
Do you see the similarity between the words sit here is magic which is derived from that time of the morning when people wake up to engage in magic, Allah subhanho wa Taala is drawing our attention to the fact that he is the Lord of the daybreak. He is the Lord who will protect you from what from the evil that he has created. You see, it is ultimately Allah Who created evil it is ultimately Allah Who created Chapin. So he's telling you that don't pay attention to the evil pay attention to the One who created the evil he can protect you from that.
Bill fella came you shadowy email, Colorado, Wyoming, shadowy laws, you can either work hard, and from the evil of the night when it settles, Allah sick is the moon. And you know, when the moon is covered by the clouds and the night becomes dark, it becomes extremely black. You know, today we don't get to experience this. Why? Because there's artificial light around us. There's our lamps in our homes and you have the lights etc. In fact, even in your own garden, you have light such that the night is not experienced to that darkness. But if you are to go out into the areas into the bush with is nothing but the stars and the moon. When that moon light becomes covered, it becomes very
dark. This is also a time of evil. This is a time where the devils are roaming about this is a time when those The Sorcerer's and the magicians are practicing their craft. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says warming shadowy, alas, you can either walk up. So I seek refuge from the evil that happens at that time, warming shattering 30 feet locally. And I seek refuge from the evil of the blowers into the knots. You see there are people who actually tie up knots. At times they take up hay and they tie it up and they blow into these knots. Allah subhanahu Attallah is telling us that to seek refuge from that as well. You know, I'd like to divert for a moment, you know, many of the time with that
we were what is known as Mima, in Arabic contains
it contains magic of some sort, even though at times that magic is meant to protect you from other magic, it is evil in and of itself and we are not allowed to wear this. You see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sysmon Allah Khatami mutton for Kadesh Shahrukh, the one who hangs an amulet that we then he has associated partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. Yes, there is a minority of scholars that allow you to hang that which is only comprising of Quran, that is okay or a hadith or something correct a DUA, etc. Something that is derived from that there is a minority of scholars that allow you to hang that but the minute you believe in that more than you believe in
Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is only ayat a hadith do us. The minute you believe in that more than you believe in Allah, you say this is protecting me for Caddyshack, so he has associated partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. The best is not to hang this at all. The best is not to wear this at all. Regardless of what it contains. I have personally opened up amulets that contain hay in them that contain pieces of clothing or shoes in them, what is this that contains should keep calling out to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala words that you can't understand? What is this? This is actually seeking refuge in the devils so it's very dangerous we don't know what's in that
don't hang these amulet will mean children Nephi 30 If you look at so many times, you find that in this amulet there is a piece of hay, they have tied knots on to it and probably blown onto those knots. This is mentioned in Surah tool falak so we seek refuge from that Oh ALLAH Amin Sherwin Nefertiti Vilket. Amin share we have seen either hazard and from the evil of the one who is jealous when he is jealous. You see, when people see and they are watching your life, then sometimes it stirs up emotions in their heart. They are not happy to see you living the way you do. They are not happy to see that you have a child and they don't they are not happy to see that you have a
beautiful car and they don't. So it is the nature of man
To a certain extent to feel that emotion and this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would seek refuge from the evil of the South. Obviously he himself Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam had no evil within him. But this was a lesson for all of us that when we look at others, and when we see what they have, what do we say? Allahumma barik Oh Allah bless him in that which he has. Why because when you make that dua, not only are you making a dua for that person, but it is a dua for yourself as well. The angel say, and for him as well, Oh Allah, for him as well Oh ALLAH. So the angels are making a dua for you. I mean, generally has it in either hazard. So this is Surah twill, Faruk, this
is what it comprises of it is a protection from that which is evil and then Surah to NUS.
In fact, I think we are reaching our time limit, so inshallah perhaps in a another Jumar, we will discuss Surah to NAS and we will end off this particular lecture, you know, series etc. You see what I wanted to do. The idea is to explain to us what this means so that when we recite it, we bear this in our minds, we bear this in our hearts, and this will be more impactful when we recite it and when we read it, may Allah subhanahu Allah protect us. May Allah subhanahu Attallah protect our families and that which we have, I mean, are SallAllahu wasallam or Baraka ala Nabina, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi
