I'm your host Kareem Abu Zaid and we come life today we have the higher aim series, today's Wednesday, pursuing the higher aim of Surah Taha

00:02:33--> 00:02:58

chapter number 20. Brothers and sisters in Islam and I would love for you to have a must have in your hand in the language which you understand, in the language which you understand, because the higher aim series is tuned towards understanding the Quran

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

reflecting upon the Quran, and deducing producing,

00:03:07--> 00:03:14

an aim we should all strive to achieve for each chapter.

00:03:15--> 00:03:26

Today we have solar power brothers and sisters in Islam like you can see chapter number 20. And the higher aim which we conclude it,

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

through happiness in this world and success in the hereafter. You will find it in Islam.

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

true happiness, true happiness.

00:03:39--> 00:04:05

Happiness is irrelevant, but the true one in this world, the source of it is Islam and to be successful in the hereafter. Islam is the source to Islam is the way to go. This is the higher aim of Surah Taha and like we mentioned before for me to present this higher aim, I must come up with the evidence.

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

First of all, this higher aim falls under the

00:04:13--> 00:04:24

the primary aims of the Quran because the religion came to become the manuscripts, the guidelines, the curriculum,

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

the man had,

00:04:28--> 00:04:33

by which if you live your life by which you will be happy

00:04:34--> 00:04:38

because this is the manual you will maker designed for you

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

and revealed for you.

00:04:43--> 00:04:49

And the purpose of it is to make you function properly.

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

Brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Start in sha Allah, our lecture right now because soda is beautiful.

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

We're gonna start with right now the higher aim of Surah Taha brothers and sisters in Islam right here.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

So Taha

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

true happiness.

00:05:15--> 00:05:24

Again I wish please kindly. If we can have, you must have in your hands because I want you to follow me

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

introduction to the soul. Let's begin with that.

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

This surah takes its name from its first word.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

Paul had

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

this name like the names of many other suitors in the Quran

00:05:45--> 00:06:07

Surah Taha is number 20 in the order of the Muslim, it is classified as an early meccan surah with a total of 135 verses Surah Taha is number 20 in the last half and has 135 it's an early makin very early

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

and we have the evidence for that.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

There are two wrong assumptions about the Surah

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

Taha

00:06:17--> 00:06:24

are two letters, Paul, the letter of Paul and Arabi Paul had

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

and is not one of the names of the Prophets

00:06:31--> 00:06:55

like many people assume like people assume that yes seen is the name of the Prophet. tala also is not a name of the Prophet these are lettered these are letters like Eddie flam me Alif Lam La La flamme me Ma, k calf hi Yeah, I even saw pa seen pa see meme

00:06:56--> 00:07:10

saw cough. Ball had two letters, but is not one of the names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam like people assume, yes, seen as well.

00:07:12--> 00:07:17

A lot of the people associate Surah Taha with the story of Omar reverting back to Islam.

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

The Hadith is weak, you're a student of knowledge, you know, you shouldn't just not read anything.

00:07:25--> 00:07:56

Look what the school has said about the Hadith. You know the story of former wanting to go kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and somebody met him. You better go fix your family first and he entered. He found I believe hubub Abdul Allah based on the narration reciting Surah Taha, he liked it and that Hadith is weak, even though we have other a hadith which are authentic regarding the story of Omar accepting Islam, enough brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

to narrate this hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mi da, O Allah,

00:08:05--> 00:08:22

support Islam, give a to Islam, give victory to Islam with one of those two, and here's the criteria, the one you love more most be a hubiera Giulini la chica. Imagine this

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

omoto blew up or I'm robina who shot

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

on top is Omar

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Abdullah he Sham Abu Jamal.

00:08:33--> 00:08:51

That's his nickname. Imagine Allah loves the aroma. More than that, and there is another Hadith out there that, you know, a lady was migrating to the SR and you know Omar in a very kind of nice way and he was no enough his

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

toughness and sternness.

00:08:55--> 00:09:05

Say said to her, maybe may you arrive safely and she said I feel a change in his tone, and he was talking to a Muslim.

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

But again, that's not my subject, but narrating that No.

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

We have two authentic narrations according related to sola Taha

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

the first al Bukhari and the second is in the blue magic.

00:09:24--> 00:09:32

Abdullayev nimasa said concerning the following chapters Benny surah L which we call is Surah.

00:09:33--> 00:09:50

Al calf, Maryam for her an MBA and they come in that order, by the way they come in that order is Surah elka, Medea, Baja, MBA and they are connected. I'm going to connect them to you.

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

I'm going to connect them to you you will see that they are one set.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

They are what he said are among

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

The best of the earliest ones that I learned by heart

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

Yeah, and he liked them

00:10:10--> 00:10:20

at Knossos memorize them and he liked them he liked and actually if you read these five chapters out of this world, so paralyze is beautiful.

00:10:21--> 00:10:37

The second Hadith we have Hadith Abu mama of your loved one who, who narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says is smooth la helaba The Greatest Name of Allah appears in three sutras Al Baqarah, Allah and Ron Paul Ha.

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

The Prophet here is referring to how you will consume

00:10:46--> 00:10:55

and how you will tell you that name was mentioned in ayatul kursi in Surah, Al Baqarah at the very beginning of Surah

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

Al Imran adfly meme Allahu La Ilaha Illa who and how you look at you, and also it's mentioned in Surah Taha but again if

00:11:07--> 00:11:25

there is a debate and we're going to come to this inshallah with the names and the attributes and this is going to be in the competition in sha Allah regarding the Greatest Name of Allah is coming up in sha Allah we're gonna present it to you in the names and the attributes section beetelite on

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

Come on pass on Islam to your kids. Make a difference. Marry RHS, women marry unrighteous man. Have righteous children pass on the religion to them. This is how can you leave a legacy behind you? Huh? Sort of Maryam is about that.

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

The story of Maria imagine this Hannah

00:12:08--> 00:12:22

the mother of Miriam vowing her baby for Allah and only boys can be given can serve in the national AXA imagine this. She became upset. Disappointed

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

it's a girl I can't fulfill my vow Don't worry.

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

I will use this girl in a way that no women ever been used before.

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

She will be a child without a father.

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

Who will be a messenger

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

Come on. Come on brothers and sisters in Islam

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

by you.

00:12:47--> 00:12:53

What is the connection with Taha look you're passing on to your children

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

the Way to Happiness

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

the way to success?

00:13:01--> 00:13:32

luck but you know when we die You know, you know when we die? It's very funny. I used to watch these you know soap operas in Egypt A long time ago. And you know, normally they get this person dying this this old man dying. Oh, oh, you you get you get the house in this place. I have a million dollars for you in that place. And you're no good and you get this in this place. All About material passing on material things to them.

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

But none of them say to his children in tequila.

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

Tequila fear Allah.

00:13:42--> 00:13:54

I'm going to show her the Hubba Pooh. To call le Bernie ma boo Nan embody.

00:13:55--> 00:14:06

What are your witnesses? when Jacob was about to die? He called upon his children. He didn't say get the camel and get the sheep. Who do you worship after me?

00:14:07--> 00:14:20

Yeah. Who do you worship after me? Omar Abdul Aziz Rahim Allah and you know whose Oman is? When he died? They found seven Dean ours.

00:14:22--> 00:14:30

His you know that his nephews and his nieces. They inherited so much money from their parents.

00:14:31--> 00:14:36

So he said to the people breathe, please take this back to the Treasury

00:14:38--> 00:14:46

to the Muslims. So they said your children, leave them with something come on. Leave them with something. He said.

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

If they are wicked,

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

if they are not righteous, I'm not going to help them with my money.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

They will use my money to do wicked things.

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

And if they are righteous and pious, Allah will take care of them. Allahu Allah, your salary. Of course, brothers, there is a somewhere in the middle there.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

But I shouldn't be worried about passing on

00:15:17--> 00:15:35

material things to kids, when I have neglected the source of their happiness, that true happiness, the source of their success. So as if Allah is telling you on Surah Taha brothers and sisters in Islam, listen,

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

you're passing on the source of happiness to your kids in this world and

00:15:43--> 00:15:57

the way to success in the hereafter you see the connection there. inshallah, I'll wait until I do the second Surah I was going to connect the five chapters. Okay, this regard this connecting five chapters, I'm going to do it next lecture inshallah.

00:15:59--> 00:16:11

I want to connect the five when I do MBA, because next is the MBA inshallah. So the five will come together and they are connected surah LKF, Medea, Baja, MBA,

00:16:13--> 00:16:21

just to let you know Allah sent all the ambia all the messengers to convey the source of happiness and

00:16:23--> 00:17:13

the source of success in the hereafter. They conveyed what religion all of them conveyed what religion Islam Beautiful, beautiful feet, there is a science called a moon moon Asada a moon what is element when you see the order of the most half is is put in a way there must be an occasion between and a lot of scholars excelled in this that they look for the occasion why Maryam denta had an MBA that that was not a random order no and that is why the people who consider this a random order lalalala nothing Allah does without a purpose nothing Allah does without a purpose. And this is in the middle of the most of when I just said a minute ago that they were revealed when very early in

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

Mecca very early in Mecca brothers and sisters in Islam moving forward to happiness.

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

You see one of the

00:17:27--> 00:17:36

the methodology of the higher aim that okay you chosen this higher aim now let people understand what this higher aim is

00:17:38--> 00:17:53

because now we want to take this and apply it to the sutra so I got to make sure that you understand what the higher a means. That comes that conceptional happiness what is the concept of happiness? What is that? Okay, so that's what we have to do now.

00:17:55--> 00:18:01

This is by the way our study people who follow our religion regardless By the way, religion

00:18:05--> 00:18:13

through active participation, and congregations tend to be happier according to a new study

00:18:15--> 00:18:39

the study by PE w Resource Center a nonprofit nonpartisan I'm sorry fact tank combines the lives of religious people and non religious people by and by analyzing survey data from more than two dozen countries including the United States, Mexico and Australia. That's a study

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

by moving forward

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

what is the concept of happiness?

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

Like I said the highest aim

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

Tafseer based of the Quran

00:18:54--> 00:19:40

after you identify the higher aim of a chapter, you should educate people about this higher aim What do you mean by true happiness and there is a true happiness false happiness. What What are you talking about here? What is that? What is that? What is happiness is to laugh all the time haha all the time. Is that to jump all the time or what is it? What is happiness? What is happiness? So you gotta define what is happiness because these terms are becoming irrelevant now becoming relevant meaning depends on who's who defines it. Like being rich what is the profit define what is riches riches that you're content with? What you have is not about how much you have. Okay, that's what

00:19:40--> 00:19:47

riches but people look at it is are you a millionaire? Are you a billionaire? What, how many houses do you have?

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

So we have to define what we're talking about here. Because we're not gonna just take the definition of somebody else. You're getting the point

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

everything

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Do you want us pursuing happiness? Happiness is Allah His paradise on earth?

00:20:08--> 00:20:34

And this statement, by the way, was made by our righteous predecessors one of them said this one law he in a facade lower I Lima, Bihar Maluku de la jolla tuna. By a law we sometimes experience moments of happiness, moments of contentment, moments of joy. If the people who own this world will know about it, they will come and try to take it away from us, but they don't know it.

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

It's away from them.

00:20:38--> 00:20:45

In dounia, lagenda Mela Mia, Mia, genital aphylla Kalam circle Islamic leukemia.

00:20:47--> 00:21:02

Indeed In this world there is a paradise whoever does not enter this paradise will not enter the paradise in the hereafter. While human half I'm a farmer appea Janata, inshallah, Torah man, the one who is

00:21:05--> 00:21:27

concerned about standing in front of Allah in the Day of Judgment, which would lead him to act upon it. He want to protect himself from the questioning, he will have to gentleness, to gentleness, one of the explanations of Jonathan here in this world and gender in the hereafter. You're getting that.

00:21:28--> 00:21:33

So panela in this world, brothers and sisters in Islam, people are

00:21:34--> 00:21:43

of two types. Where do we get that? Hadith Abdullah hypno Massoud Ravi Allahu anhu. And the Hadith inside a Muslim

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

in a

00:21:46--> 00:21:59

huge amount of fee but Naomi Yamanaka mahmudullah, for mollepata mahmudullah the creation of one of you in the womb of the mother 40 days, a sperm 40 days,

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

a handgun.

00:22:02--> 00:22:20

clocked and then another 40 days of flesh, then an angel will come and breathe the soul into that flesh and he will write four things. One of them shocky yawn m say

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

whether he would beat it. It's w with a W. Or plus are happy

00:22:31--> 00:22:50

on the day of judgment as well. People will break into two groups, whether rich or whether happy. yo maya Tila Kela Muna soon in the knee thermen, whom shall pay you must read solitude.

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

When this day comes, the day of judgment, no one will be allowed to speak without Allah has permission, and they will break into two groups, rich or happy. So that's the way it is brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:23:07--> 00:23:15

Read this, the satanic souls need nutritions hang in there based on haritha blindness, oh, let me explain this to you.

00:23:17--> 00:23:28

So I believe in him so he told us that after 120 days, an angel comes and breathe the soul into the flesh. That's how life begins.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

By how life ends.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

He thought it affects

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

you

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

too to

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

Seoul mo Toma in

00:23:42--> 00:23:55

elegir he became the model the oldest soul come out of the body to Allah to loot.

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

And the Hadith.

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

Hadith Abu hurayrah Salima Muslim mentions Oh wicked soul come out to the punishment of Allah. So life starts with the soul joining the body. life ends with the soul separating from the body. So in between, you have two things together body and soul.

00:24:20--> 00:24:24

Like what is the nutrition for the body? How do you feed the body?

00:24:26--> 00:24:41

The source is water. Food. What was your all nominal math? In high out of water? Everything comes to life. You start eating Olive Garden Red Lobster,

00:24:42--> 00:24:50

you know, whatever. Whatever you want to eat here. That's how you keep your body What? nutrition but what about the soul?

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

What is the nutrition for the soul? Here is the thing. Read that slide now. Based on Hadith Abdullah, if necessary.

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

And so that will fetch verses 2728. Allah created us from body and our soul. Allah sent down the nutritions there is an SDR for both body, water and soul, that revelation Islam, people are normally more focused and more interested in the bodily nutrition and very negligent rather and aware of the existence of the souls

00:25:29--> 00:25:50

which is necessary for the well being of the soul. That is why they feel unhappy. or other sometimes they use the satanic soul nutrition such as music, substance abuse, addiction. Evidence is in so often a demo, Allah subhana wa Taala brought down the Quran, the sooner

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

in order to feed that soul.

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

Check yourself out after the break to head to that night, how you feel.

00:26:01--> 00:26:08

It's easy for someone to feel this way. He goes on he sits on that bar and he drinks that Miller

00:26:09--> 00:26:14

whatever light and then he vomits and that's a satanic

00:26:15--> 00:26:40

essentially turn one. That's why they call alcohol, spiritual drinks. That's one of the ways that God calls alcohol, spiritual drinks. spirits, you know that that's in order to justify eating it, drinking it, I'm sorry, drugs, abuse, addictions gambling, made the people who gambled when they are gamma adultery.

00:26:42--> 00:26:53

Some people are addicted to cars to sport so you know, and all of that. Look at this. Yeah, you're Latina Manu in

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

worshiping Allah in a way that is not

00:27:12--> 00:27:23

not implementing the religion properly. Doing a lot A lot, a lot, the dancing and all that stuff. All of this is from shaitan.

00:27:25--> 00:27:32

There is a way to nourish your soul. According to the way of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

These things will cause disunity will cause the shehecheyanu brothers and sisters in Islam. This is why they end up depressed.

00:27:55--> 00:27:55

real happiness brothers and sisters in Islam, real tranquility in our hearts,

00:29:02--> 00:29:36

ladies in our conviction to Islam, clays in our belief that what Allah subhana wa Taala has revealed is the ultimate truth. This belief is accompanied by action, accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam real happiness is this conviction and good deeds that we do. All this accompanied by content that whatever Allah has decreed is from him, and is the best for us. Imagine that brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:29:40--> 00:29:47

So panela real, real happiness also is knowing what life is.

00:29:48--> 00:29:52

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

your expectation about life. Look at this. I will say the hoodie or the Allahu anhu

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

00:31:27--> 00:31:49

Allahu Akbar, the one to whom Allah and His apostle, His Messenger becomes dearer than anything else. The one who loves a person for the sake of a law, the one who hates to revert to atheism to this obedience to do and Haram. Like he hates to be flowing in Hill. That's where you'll find happiness brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

the correct concept of Zoo

00:31:54--> 00:32:37

What is this? Looking at this world? You see, we need to be balanced here. We cannot let the non Muslims own the world. They will use it to stop us from believing in Allah. They will corrupt our religion brothers and sisters in Islam. This is why we have we have to take control of this world do our best, but the world is in our hand, nothing our hearts. The money is in my hand, nothing My hearts. Alabama was asked what is the true definition of Zeus, mmf met you know what he said? That you have 1000 golden coins dinars.

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

You don't become happy. When the increase when they increase. You don't become sad when they decrease it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.

00:32:49--> 00:33:09

You know? That's it. I read these ahaadeeth brothers and sisters in Islam sadness or this idea of your loved one says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said where this world was a window for mosquito this world equals a window for mosquito in the sight of Allah.

00:33:10--> 00:33:12

If not even that

00:33:14--> 00:33:37

the world the life imagine with all this real estate it does not equal are winco Farms but be careful. Be balanced here We cannot let the non Muslims have the world because in alladhina cafaro una familia De Anza de la una casa mata poonawalla em Hassan boon, one Latina they will spend their money to hinder people from following the path of Allah.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

This is what moves us a lot better and Nikita

00:33:45--> 00:33:50

unsavoury. Oh Allah you given the field all this will. They are using it to stop people from believing, believing in you

00:33:52--> 00:33:56

know, we should strive, but the world is not our eight.

00:33:57--> 00:34:18

This is phase one and even imagine, look at the other Hades brothers and sisters in Islam. I love this howdy in Allah hi Auntie dounia Lima in your head, who am Allah you have? While you're up to Dina Lima, you have Allahu Akbar, Allah will give this world to those whom he loves, and those whom he does not love.

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

Look at that. And Muslims they have the world

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

is not a sign of being favored by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But Allah will give the religion that's the correct narration By the way, a lot of people mistakenly say, well, you're a feeler know what you're up to D Now, the commitment to Islam only to those whom who loves How do you feel Muslim men that have that's the perception about life here that you see that's part of happiness, that you the way that you look, the way that you perceive life. That's extremely important. The way that you perceive life. You're getting that all right.

00:35:00--> 00:35:33

Here it is. Look at that the last one here. This world is a testing place, not a resting place. This life is a testing place. Not a resting place brothers and sisters now, don't ever expect this world. Don't ever expect this world to be ablaze. You see a lot of Muslims unfortunately why they feel down? Because they expect they want this world to be perfect. No. And if you mean by Alif Lam mean? Has he been

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

to Roku?

00:35:40--> 00:35:44

poo now homeless.

00:35:46--> 00:36:44

Do people expect to be left alone just because? Because they believe in Allah. Let's look at the Howdy. Howdy fincen intermedia NASA, sorry to Hakeem Saudi Arabia cos I love your loved one who asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam Yara Sula, Allah O Messenger of Allah. Men ashot do Nancy Bella, which people are tested more severely? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered by saying an MBR Ooh, the prophets, so Masada una then the righteous, some m cellufun m, then those who are close to them. While you will be Talal ma de Dini, and a man will be brought to trial in accordance to the quality of his religion, the in Mooji de de Sala baton z de

00:36:44--> 00:37:07

la fille de la, if he is firm in his religion, his trial will be elevated. And if he is weak, he will be coding and why do we get tested? Look at that last brownish, the servant will continue to be put to trial until he is left walking upon the earth without a sin. So then the tirmidhi brothers and sisters in Islam

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

so

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

man, I haven't even started the school as

00:37:14--> 00:37:14

well.

00:37:16--> 00:37:29

But But let me let me just I summed up the seven steps to happiness in this world and success in the head after happiness in this world and success in the hereafter.

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

Number one, then knowledge.

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

Who is your Creator? So panela

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

who's your Creator?

00:37:42--> 00:37:46

Look, look for her Baha, ma.

00:37:51--> 00:37:51

Ko.

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

Kira, Lima, yaksha.

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

00:38:02--> 00:38:02

Our

00:38:04--> 00:38:12

team Lola, our man won, and she's our lahoma fish.

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

That's all are we in danger have been

00:38:24--> 00:38:25

in

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

a lot of

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

asthma.

00:38:38--> 00:38:59

Imagine the beginning of the surah. That's why one of the evidence for this higher aim is the beginning. By Utah and here, we did not reveal the Quran to burden you actually this is your source of happiness, your source of success. Why? Who designed it? Allah? Who your Creator.

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

He needs you. He knows you.

00:39:03--> 00:39:06

The Honda does a manual for the car that you

00:39:07--> 00:39:15

that you took as a man and Mercedes allies your maker, he brought down the manual, the guidance, the curriculum that will fix you.

00:39:17--> 00:39:34

You're getting that you're getting that. But who's your Creator? This is number one. Why would you create it? And I love this. Look at the story of Musa the story of Musa when Allah called double Moosa in the desert in Sinai

00:39:36--> 00:39:37

in a capital word in

00:39:39--> 00:39:43

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

This is who's you created. Now? Why did He create you

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

Why did he create? Bodine worship Me?

00:40:05--> 00:40:07

Allah created you to worship him

00:40:08--> 00:40:11

Why am I a portal gene?

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

Bodine.

00:40:45--> 00:41:02

So that's one and two of how to worship him. What are female solitarily the Kiri how to remember me stablish the salon. How do I pray? Son Luca Mara Tony or Sally Bray like you have me have seen me pray.

00:41:03--> 00:41:25

00:41:37--> 00:41:46

00:41:48--> 00:42:02

The purpose of this world What is this world is about and we told you is that testing place not the resting place? It doesn't equal I wouldn't go for a mosquito we mentioned look at number four. What are the obstacles?

00:42:03--> 00:42:08

What are the obstacles? Look at the next verse, verse number 15. In
