the sun rises above us.

00:00:07--> 00:00:13

And life begins. We benefits from this light of the sun.

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

And then comes the darkness of the nights where we seek our shelter and protection

00:00:35--> 00:00:39

because within the darkness, predators can hide.

00:00:41--> 00:00:46

This is the gift of physical lights in the dunya.

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

And Allah subhanaw taala throughout the Quran uses the parable of lights

00:00:56--> 00:01:25

to turn our attention towards the truth. Allahu Allah, you will live in Amman, your footage of Amina valo Mati Isla noon.

He brings them out of darkness and into lights. And those who disbelieve their guardian

00:01:26--> 00:01:49

are the false gods of thought hoods, who bring them out of the light and into darkness. Likewise, when Allah subhanaw taala speaks about the hypocrites. He says methylome chemically LED is still called an era. There example there's simile Tood is like the one who lights a fire, Philomena Alba a tower who so when the lights

enlightened around him, they have Allahu venuti him, Allah takes away their their lights, and leaves them in the darkness to be blind.

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

Allah brings us the attention of light and darkness.

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

And we're reminded of something of greater importance.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

Just as we are in deep need of physical light in this world.

00:02:18--> 00:02:22

We will be in deep need of physical light in the next worlds.

00:02:24--> 00:02:30

And the physical light in the next world is attained by the spiritual lights in this world.

00:02:32--> 00:03:22

to do so due to Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment, and I will be the first given permission to raise his head on that day. And I will look up and I will see my OMA from amongst all the commas.

00:04:34--> 00:04:53

One of the companions asked our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Messenger of Allah, how will you know your own map from amongst all the different Omus which is an intelligent question. Imagine on the Day of Judgment, all of humanity has arisen

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

out of their graves. One Hadith the Prophet says all of us will be naked

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:02


00:05:03--> 00:05:48

How will you know who is from the owner of new Alayhis Salam, and who is from the OMA of Musa alayhis salam, and who is from the owner of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam we will all be human beings. So he asks the Prophet How are you going to know your own love from the other owners? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions a few reasons. And amongst them, he says, Why out of whom venuti him and let the beta add him want a man in one shot at him? He says, I will know them. Due to their lights. There will be a lights for them, before them between their hands, and on the right side and upon their left as well.

00:05:49--> 00:06:40

This dua that Allah mentions in this verse, Rob bene SPM, Lana and Oran, our Atlanta, our Lord perfect our lights and forgive our sins. It reminds us we are in need of Nora from Allah subhanaw taala not only in this world do we need the sun to exist and to be able to deal with our affairs in the next world we will be even more in need of the lights of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah mentions for us as well. The example of the Munna effect of the hypocrites on that day. Yo may opponent Munna Munna Cortes, the Latina Eminem guna Nikita disminuir Allah says on that day, the hypocrite of the men and of the women will say to the believers waits for us. We will benefit from your lights Hold

00:06:40--> 00:06:56

on Don't go so fast wait for us. We want to benefit from your life because they are in darkness. They know Jariwala icon it will be sent to them. Go back. Go back go behind. Phil tell me sooner and find your own lights.

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

Febraury Baba, you know whom be sued in law who died when baffling and goofy here was our hero woman was our hero human Liberty Hill

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

and a wall will be placed between them.

00:07:11--> 00:07:34

And Allah says the interior of this wall will be containing mercy and its exterior containing punishment or that meaning what? The side of the wall on which the believers are at is the side of Rama. That side of the wall will be Rama and mercy and the other side where the hypocrites are will be the side of punishment.

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us

00:07:39--> 00:08:32

your tuna no no Rahim. Allah Kadri are mad at him. The people will be gifted their lights on that day in proportion to their good deeds. Mr. Rana Anna Surat, Furman Humann neuron mythology elgible. He said some and they will pass the Sirat with this light. He said some of them will have lights that will be like a mountain, a mountain of lights. And some of them will have lights that is like the palm tree. The palm tree can be very large. He said and some of them will have lights, only the size of their thumbs and it will flicker. It will be on and off, on and off. And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said from the believers, they will have light from Medina all

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

the way to Arjun

00:08:34--> 00:08:35


00:08:36--> 00:08:53

So from the city of Medina, all the way to cities in Yemen. All of that will be lights for some of the believers. And he says women will manually Umoja epidemic and some of them their lights will only show where their foot is, they will see where their foot is and that's it's

00:08:54--> 00:09:36

so we will be in need of lights from Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. How do we get that lights? And I'll mention just some categories. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us of or Allah azza wa jal has informed us and there are many even beyond the 12 or so I will mention today. The first is Eman. Allah subhanaw taala says the old male calling them when I feel when I went when I thought on that day the hypocrites of the men and of the women will say to whom little Latina am and to those who believe. Waits we want to get some of your lights. But who are they speaking to the believers Eman in your hearts? This is the most important thing. You're gonna tell

00:09:36--> 00:09:53

me in a minute. Yes, sir. No room at him. On that day you will see the believing men and the believing woman lights is flourishing between their hands. So Eman and Allah subhanho wa Taala in our hearts, purifying our belief in Allah azza wa jal.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

The second thing that will give us light of Allah subhanaw taala. Eman is the

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

primary thing that will give us light. The second thing. Notice at the beginning of the verse we recited that mentions the Day of Judgment and mentioned the believers having this light and then seeing to Allah benefits from Lenna neuron our Lord perfects our light. What is the first thing Allah says at the beginning of this verse? Yeah, are you are Latina Amma no to boo it Allah He told her to nurse or her. Oh you who believe. Repent to Allah with a pure repentance? Tell a baton. Not so ha a sincere repentance.

00:10:37--> 00:10:47

And so this shows us one of the keys to getting the light of Allah subhanaw taala is repenting to Allah azza wa jal, but not any repentance, the pure repentance.

00:10:48--> 00:11:21

The scholars talk about this verse What is the difference? Why does Allah say Toba to know? Sudha? What is the pure repentance? They say it is one of the signs of the pure repentance is it occurs over and over and over again. You seek Allah's forgiveness over and over and over again. It's not one time you say stuck for Allah and that's it, but you're constantly seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and returning back to him tilba literally is to turn back to Allah azza wa jal. So you're constantly turning back to Allah subhanho wa taala.

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

The third point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:11:26--> 00:11:38

in Nila ilevel Kelly Martin Leia Kulu Allah in the notes in Lac Han at noon, the Saudi fatty hip. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I know a word

00:11:39--> 00:12:36

that no servant says at the moment of his death, except that it will be a light for his cipher for his scrolls for his deeds where his deeds are written. It will be a light for him. What is this word? La ilaha illa Allah. And so how do we ensure or allow ourselves to be the people who lead Ilaha illa Allah is the last words that come from our mouths. And the only way we can do this is if La ilaha IL Allah is common, and often on our tongues. So we are immersed in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala that's number one. And number two, our heart has to be constantly churning to Allah subhanaw taala and moments of when you're amazed moments when you're afraid moments when

00:12:36--> 00:12:58

anything captures your attention. You remember Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the attitude of the believer. And if we have this in our lives, then in sha Allah, we will be the people remembering Allah, on our deathbed with their last words. Another category of getting the light of Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment is the recitation of the Quran.

00:12:59--> 00:13:26

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men of Quran Al Quran, what are Allah who were and what were Amin IV, Al best Allahu Allah, so Allah, you're gonna play Amity Tadge. And we know, he said, and there's two narrations of the same Hadith as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whosoever recites the Quran, and learns it, and acts according to it.

00:13:27--> 00:13:33

On the Day of Judgment, this is one narration, Allah will give him a crown of lights.

00:13:35--> 00:13:41

And another narration, Allah will give his parents a crown of lights.

00:13:42--> 00:13:47

boo me through the Shams, its light will be like the light of the sun.

00:13:49--> 00:14:07

And Allah will dress his parents, his mother and his father, who lead hand two types of garments, lots of whom will be my dunya it cannot compare to anything in this world. It is so good these garments, they're better than anything in the dunya

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

say Akula can be my kusina hada the mother in the Father will ask for what reason? Were we given these garments? For what reason? Were we given this beautiful clothing? And so it will be sent to them for Your call will be bsv what is the common Quran because of your child taking the Quran because of your child learning and acting according to the Quran. So when we recite the Quran, we get light on the day of judgment and not only us but even our parents. The more we memorize the Quran, and learn it and act upon it. Not only is it a light for us, but a light for our mothers and our fathers as well. of the reasons of light on the Day of Judgment is making will do the Prophet

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

said in the onma T, toenail milk, Lian Mattia Hi Janine, Minh SRN odo. He said My people will be brought the prophets of Allah and said I'm said, My people will be brought on the Day of Judgment with

00:15:15--> 00:15:22

faces, and hands and feet brightened from the effects of woowoo.

00:15:23--> 00:16:02

From the effects of audible, meaning the places where we make will do our hands, our faces, our head, our arms, our feet, they will be shining. On that day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued, and he said for Minnesota, I'm income and you will clean Russia, hopefully, whomever amongst you is capable of extending his light, let him do so. Meaning what make will do more often. You lose your will don't try to make well though right after why you get this light on the Day of Judgment whoever is capable of extending their light let them do so.

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

Another category of gaining the light of Allah is the connection to the masjid.

00:16:09--> 00:16:59

One of them the prophets of Allah where it was sending them said best shooting. Masha ina filming Elon Musk Elon massage has been no return your monthly ama give glad tidings to those who walk in darkness to the masjid with the perfect lights on the Day of Judgment. So when we go to pray in the masjid, particularly the difficult prayers, which is fed in Russia, when it is dark, and it's difficult to walk or even to drive to the masjid, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, give glad tidings to those people walk to the masjid in this darkness, that they will have the perfect lights on the Day of Judgment. Also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:17:00--> 00:17:20

in Allah Allah you will be a little ADINA, it's a Hello Anna, Ill massage it. Phil will me be Norden Salthill milk Liana that said that the Prophet SAW Allah says that there will be a light given to those who seclude themselves in the masjid in darkness, with a great light on the Day of Judgment.

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

Likewise, of the categories of those given light on the Day of Judgment, or those who observe the day of Juma

00:17:30--> 00:17:53

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this authentic hadith, in Allahu Allah, yom, yom, Yom at either at Ha, the days, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, the days will be brought forward on the Day of Judgment, according to its status and its importance. And he said, Well, you rifle Joomla and the day of Joomla will be brought forward.

00:17:54--> 00:18:17

As 110 Mooney Euro, it will be like an enlightened flower. And it's people that people of July will celebrate it, and they will benefit from its lights. And they will walk on the Day of Judgment with the lights of drama. And everyone who sees them will wish they had its lights and will be amazed by the light of drama.

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

And it's a lengthier Hadith.

00:18:21--> 00:18:37

So this shows us the people of July. What does that mean? We We respect your ma, we come from the hutzpah, we come early, we recite Surah of Catherine will mention that in the next category. We understand the value and the importance of this day and have this prayer.

00:18:39--> 00:18:55

And like I said reciting Surah, that calf, because the Prophet said specifically about this man or a Surah Al calf, can it's Allahu note on your monthly ama whosoever recite Surah to the calf, it will be a light for them on the Day of Judgment. Another category

00:18:56--> 00:19:12

is being just the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the book CCleaner and the law here believe me nor I near me in a rock man, a Lavina I didn't want if you hook me him. Well Lee him when

00:19:13--> 00:19:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said those who are fair who are just will be on Mimbres platforms of lights on the right side of Iraq man Subhan Allah to Allah. Allah Dena and you know those who are just when it comes to the rule, and their families and Overwatch ever they have been given power. So in our in the rule if someone has rulership, but not just that, if you have power in the community, in your business and your workplace, and whatever capacity even in your home, with your kids with your family, any power or authority Allah has given you if you are

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

Lost and you are fair. If you're just with your children, you don't give a gift to one you don't give the other if you're just, you will have light on the Day of Judgment. The 10th category

00:20:13--> 00:20:59

is gray hairs or white hairs. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men Shabbat shea butter and Phil Islam can at Lahore nor on Yom Okayama whosoever has gray hair or white hair in Islam, it will be a light for them on the Day of judgments. And there's many Hadith a Schabel neutron Muslim and other hadith of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, another Hadith meme and Muslim, your Shibu shea butter and Islam illiquidity Bella who be ha ha Sana, no Muslim gets a white hair while in the state of a SNAM except that is written as a good deed. And Allah cancels out an evil deed. Many hadith of this now why is this the case? First there is a symbolism. What is white hair

00:20:59--> 00:21:40

symbolizes, it comes from time and efforts, hard work. So the person is in the state of the SNAM working, praying, fasting, giving striving, and they produce these gray hairs and these white hairs on their head on their beards on there, wherever they may be. What is this mean? You're getting rewarded for all the efforts you're putting in? But there's a second meaning. We know the idea. Allah subhanaw taala mentions the people in the Hellfire will be screaming out but I'm gonna I'm gonna sorry hon. While you're alive, you couldn't an airman there will be screaming out from the Hellfire saying, Oh Allah bring us out of the Hellfire. We will do good deeds, not like the deeds we

00:21:40--> 00:21:45

used to do. So what does Allah say to them? I want him to I'm miracle.

00:21:46--> 00:22:16

Maya that could offer him into the car. Didn't we give you enough of the lights for one to remember? Didn't we give you enough of life? Enough time on Earth for you to remember Allah azza wa jal? And then he says what Jah Revere? And didn't the warning come to you? So what is this mean? Who is the Warner? Some scholars say it is the Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came in, he warned us. But many of the scholars say that's not what's intended in this particular verse.

00:22:17--> 00:23:00

If not best, I can imagine many of the scholars their opinion would Jacqueline nivia The warning came to you what is the warning? What is the Warner your gray hairs, your Whitehair mean? Allah gave you this warning, to remind you, that you're gonna pass away to remind you, your life is gonna end to remind you, you're gonna stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala. Well, Jack Hakuna Vir. And so this is even a warning. These gray hairs and white hairs that come out are a warning for the believer to remind them of Allah azza wa jal. And so when you take that reminder, this is a light for you. On the Day of Judgment, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us with that light. The final

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

point there's other ones that are mentioned, in the Hadith, we don't have time to mention everything that brings us light on the day of judgment, but I mentioned this last one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the minute the bad law here are bad, and they used to be MBR. He said amongst the servants of Allah, or those were not profits. You have to humble MBA was shahada, and yet the prophets and the marchers will be envious of them a positive envy on the day of judgment, and they will be on platforms of lights

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

on the day of judgment,

00:23:38--> 00:24:21

and so why, why do these people have them? They asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mannheimia Rasool Allah called a home comun to have Gubin aurilla I mean Haley or ham and wala, and Serbian would you know Ron, Allah Munna Berryman nor Leia fauna either half and notice what I what I was gonna say that has an inverse. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they are people who loved each other, for the light of Allah. They love each other for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not because of family relationships, not because of tribal relationships. And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no mushy as Kabira between them there's there's

00:24:21--> 00:24:30

no tribal reason why they are friends, why they love one another, either lady or having been a one on one. You're

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

not neither for reasons of family, blood, nor for reasons of money.

00:24:37--> 00:24:58

Not because there's business between them. There's opportunity, not for any of these reasons, not for blood, not for tribe, just because of Allah subhanaw taala they love each other for the sake and Allah subhanaw taala will put them place them on platforms of light. How beautiful is this? And will law he this is one of the essential characteristics of Islam.

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

Now you have

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Have masajid people of different ethnicities sitting next to each other skin colors, sitting next to each other worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, having Allah for one another, and we should embrace this, try to formulate love between Muslims of different backgrounds, different languages for no reason other than that we love Allah subhanaw taala and we want to be connected to Allah azza wa jal that we break the evil of nationalism and racism that may exist between us that we love each other only for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and Allah subhanaw taala will raise us on platforms of light for no reason. Other than that we love each other sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

Falcone had our software they would have come through in order for him.

00:25:52--> 00:26:32

Some 1100 allow salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are early he was talking to heat woman wetter. Just before I end a request from a family. There was a young brother, his name was Lola Yan. He used to come to the masjid often and he would volunteer and photograph events for us sometimes for free. This brother had a lot I didn't find out. This happened about five six weeks ago, he passed away drowning in near Guelph. So his family's asking that we make dua for him May Allah subhanaw taala forgive his sins and accept him as a Shaheed drowning is one of the ways the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah said and mentioned that Allah azza wa jal can accept the person as a Shaheed, So may Allah

00:26:32--> 00:26:38

accept him as such. I mean, in Allahu Mala, it could be someone and and maybe your lady in Amman or somebody he was sending with Sneem
