Just starting with the right intention, right, starting with the right intention is key. And one of the things we want to avoid a little bit not that I'm saying your actions are not accepted. I'm just saying be careful with being numb with the things that we do, right? It's like a machine like taraweeh I shot this this and that. Tried to put a little bit of thought put a little bit of energy into answering while you're going through this very important job which is to take that reward to another level. You know, as our teachers they teach us when someone would like to serve their parents, right? Give them a cup of water would Allah reward me if I did not think it's for Allah
sake, will Allah reward me for that cup of water? Yes, you will be inshallah because of out of goodwill. But if you're able to think of Allah subhanaw taala then your reward goes a little bit up a notch. Now it's out of goodwill in addition is for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada that's something started to keep in mind Make sure number two is to prioritize things. Sometimes I mess this up a little bit in Ramadan. You know, I'm like, Oh, let me go fix the bathroom magic the whole month of Ramadan. Now I'm gonna fix it in the last 10 nights or handleless what happens right? Forgive me because that was a true story. I just did it today and I'm like, What am I doing? I could
have waited till after Ramadan. Right now it's all good right trying to fix my car now so I think she finds effect sometimes kicks in so everything will be fine in sha Allah if you wait just for one more week. Just one more week inshallah and everything will be fine with me Eliza panel data or 10 days. Yes, vacuuming. vacuuming the house. I don't
About her maybe vacuuming the house. You should do right? Because it's 10 days.
But just the timing it was like the session isn't thing I was like, you know, let me just pull it out really, let's just get this done.
Picking picking this time is about more valuable than other times. So prioritizing and during excellent excellent. You know in just one last thing about vacuuming that's what I kind of did right now cleaning up I'm like, why am I cleaning up so much right now? It's just like you tried to justify why you're not doing well magic you know what I mean? That a matassa May Allah forgive us and I'm grateful for this session because you guys are going to be rewarded in sha Allah because of encouraging the instructors to show up I want you all to know that this is very honest feedback. Your attendance plays a significant role in the Speaker's performance and excitement such as Zack
will love here on May Allah accept from all of us here have allowed me fantastic.
Alright shall let you go straight into the session. Listen in line, we have limited time I want to make sure that people can benefit as much as possible inshallah. So in sum, all right. Bismillah or Soto salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam ala Disraeli, Saudi yesterday Emery. What Hello Lourdes Emily Stanny of Cocconi we begin by saying Name of Allah subhanho wa taala. We ask Allah always and forever Yeah, Allah send your peace and your blessings upon your beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Okay, what do we have tonight? Someone was asking long time ago in the chat, what Surah are we talking about? I will not tell you about surah number. I'm going to ask you a question. Who is the worst couple ever existed on Earth? Can you imagine how bad that is the worst husband, the worst wife. And this comes to show you something. compatibility is not always a positive thing.
Because they weren't compatible, like but there's just so evil. And they were so great together. Right? But it does not make them a successful family. SubhanAllah. So yes, we want to be compatible upon the truth. We want to be compatible with focusing on Allah's pleasure. And this is the type of unity that we want because sometimes people have events. Let's just all be united, I have no problem being united this united on what? United on what so as long as we are united on something that which is the truth, this is what matters the most. So ask Allah to unite us all upon the truth and monopolize I mean, it was so interesting. Yes, it is about to happen his wife on Jamil now I will
happen his wife and the surah comes what numbers sort of 111 Right? Now when you wanna stretch a little bit, you know, like Ebola haps face la la la la la la is only one Allah right, one guy. So this is surah number 111. Now, what's so interesting is that one of the worst couples of the entire time of Croatia, longtime to Ireland, they are related blood related to the best couples on Earth. Hamza Salman Khadija, and this is quite an eye opening honestly, like you know, within the same family of the best couple and the worst couple. So may Allah bless us and forgive us and greatest patience towards our family members, yada Bananaman. Now a quick background as well, who is I will
have Abu Lahab is one of four uncles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So let's see in the chat, who are the prophets uncles listening now, I thought it might be differences of opinion about extended extended relatives. Okay, so Abba Father was one at best fantastic and we'll find about best Hamza and who's number four was number four.
Will have fantastic May Allah bless you, Bill and Zack along here. So these four now check this out. Okay, can you guys do this right split at the hands like that. So the two are disbelievers and two are believers. Right so the two that died so far only did
so the two that died as disbelievers was who was
Apple pilot it and I will have a date as kuffaar and then Hamza and Ally bass they believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Alright, so what's the story that why was the sort of reveal Can you imagine this is like the surah is cursing a man and the man has been cursed at the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allison's uncle. So let's see, what's the reason why was this reveal? What's the story behind this Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he received revelation at the age of 40 years old. But before I go to the 40 years old, I want to go the age of 35 Can I do that age of 35 age of 35 before he received prophethood, he was assigned okay by the will of Allah subhanaw taala Allah
Kadar of Allah that He was the one to determine who places the black stone people had their swords ready. People were willing to kill one another as to who will place the Bloodstone when the renovation of the cabinet took place. So they said the one who will walk from this door will be the one who judges will be the
Family that puts the Blackstone everybody's waiting. Everybody's waiting and excited hoping this man that will walk in will be from their family who will have the prestige to put the Blackstone, lo and behold the one who comes is none other than Mohamed Salah Lonnie was a saddle. I mean, so all of them which is pretty unique. They said, I mean the trustworthy has come, they're all happy. He is the most deserving human to put the Blackstone he was the superstar of course Mohamed Salah Salem was the superstar, of course, that the young man on the rise type of thing that will eventually take over all of Christ and to an extent of that leadership. He came then he was such a genius, Eileen,
your Salatu was Salam that he found a way not just for him to put it, but to all tribes to put it and they mentioned that he saved the Mecca from bloodshed. Why am I referencing this? Because imagine how his family felt I will have is his immediate uncle. So he loves his nephew, not just that ready for this, to have Abu Lahab boys were engaged to to have Mohamed Salah instead of his daughters Subhanallah like that's how close they were. That's how much Ebola respected loved Mohamed Salatu was Salam. Now at the age of 14, he received revelation everything's a bit calm. Why? Because for the first three years now remember some numbers. From the age of 14 to 43. The Dow was private,
the data was selected. The data was undercover. So there's no public call to Allah just yet. Now I will have did he know I assume you know, you would imagine that. Yes, he heard and it's very possible some narrations but not authentic. From my understanding. They do suggest that the province of Allah awesome spoke with his family. He spoke to them in an enclosed setting, but nothing really worked out and of the few people from the Prophets immediate family that accepted Islam. Who were they besides his wife and kids, immediate family? What do you think immediate blood family of the Prophet that accepted Islam right from the beginning, a fantastic ally of the law has been excellent
in it which is a little bit sad. Why? Because he has a lot of family members and only it brought the Allahu Allah and he was the first young man to ever accept Islam. Not just that one time check this out, right? This is authentic hadith. One time one of the people that eventually became Muslim many, many years later, he came early Islam, early Islam he went to Mecca, and he was doing some business. His business partner was a lab best profits uncle who was not Muslim yet. So this man says, when I came to Mecca, I saw a man stand right in front of the cabinet. Next to him is a young man or young boy like a teenager or younger. And behind the two is a older lady like a respected lady. So he said
I asked a lot best Yeah, but who are these people? What are they doing? He said, As for the one who's standing the taller person or the one on the left is my nephew, Mohamed Salah Salem. And the one next to him is I live in Thailand, and the one behind them. That lady is Khadija venti hoId. And my nephew claims check this out guys check this out. My nephew claims and my best is talking to his business partner. He says that he is a Prophet he sees it receives revelation, not just that I know sounds crazy. But he says his religion will take over the whole Arabian Peninsula. I'm just saying what he said I'm just conveying the message. So this man who heard this, he said I never really took
it so serious and I moved on. Eventually, decades and perhaps know about a decade later or so he became Muslim. So he said, Man, I wish if I accepted Islam at that moment, I would have been one of the first people that one of the first time ever even says I think he's the fourth person to accept Islam Subhanallah so it is something to appreciate how Muslim was doing his Dawa and also an aside point, you and I being grateful that Allah chose to be Muslim while I be grateful. Can you imagine your own nephew? To be the Prophet Muhammad has a lamp and you don't believe in him. So you have a lie everyone here in sha Allah has with the Prophet wished for his uncle to have. So we have at that
time the necessary to handle all those with Hamdulillah you know, Allah has made it easy for us and we ask Allah to make us die upon such a blessing. So eventually at the age of 43, Allah reveals a verse what and then I share article Acrovyn now convey go public about the Dawa. No more private undercovers selected or whatever proper word you wish to use. So what does he do Ali's Auto Salon he goes all the way up to Witch Mountain or San Martin called. He goes like downtown Metka them
ultimus call Jebin close suffer fantastic because Japan has suffered. So when you went to Japan to suffer, he said yes, Abba ha like Mayday, mayday, urgent call, urgent call. So everybody came the Hadith says every single person in Mecca showed up. And the ones that cannot make it, what did they do? They sent a representative on their behalf. So what does that mean? There's not a single citizen of Makkah, who will not have access to what the prophet is about the same Homosassa. And before we even continue, the fact that everyone showed up, shows you the prophets level, he didn't say anything. He just said, I have an important announcement. I have an important announcement. That's
all what he said. And everybody showed up. Why? Because they know a 43 year old three year old, wonderful human being. Muhammad Hassan said, I will not waste our time. He is a greatest man in Maccha. Let's see what he has to say. Bismillah Yeah, Mohammed, what do you have to tell us? So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's a genius. Look how he sets up the the events. He says to them, if I would tell you, behind this mountain, there's an army coming to attack you. Would you believe me?
Now, before I tell you what they said, what the prophet is asking is completely illogical. Completely doesn't make any sense. Why? for three reasons. Number one, if there's an army really coming, we would have seen the army. The mountain is not so big to cover the horizon. We're not blind, like there's an army with seeds. So the problem is that there's an army hiding behind the mountain. That number two is that if we cannot see it, at minimum, we'll see the dust the side effects of the army coming and that too is not present. Worst case scenario, worst case scenario, we would have heard at least what? Rumors, rumors, oh, we heard someone is coming. So none of these
three are applicable. And he asked him a question. So would you believe me if I tell you there's an enemy behind the mountain and army coming? So what do they say maj or rob Malaika. Caliban caught on Mohamed we never in our lives. Noticed you lie once Allahu Akbar. Another authentic narration someone said to the Prophet, you always said the truth. So they all agree, open up any book of Sierra, not a single citizen of Maccha not say what oh, no, I don't think so. Didn't even doubt him. They all said yes, for sure. There will be an army, even though it's against our logic, but your level of truthfulness is beyond our logic. Hola. Hola. Okay, so then he said the following now who
was also standing there, Abu Lahab, who also agreed the Prophet never lies Abdullah. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says basically that was a question Would you believe me if I'm if an army comes, but now the affirmation and the Absolute Truth is the fact I am warning you Yes, but not have an army. I am warning you of a punishment that is coming your way. If we do not obey Allah subhana wa Tada.
So logically, if you believe in the first one, you will believe in the second one. So right then and there, what did I will have saying that I will have say, oh, you're a liar. Law? No way. Because if Abu Lahab said, You're a liar, Ebola will look like a fool. Because Apple will have just said you never lie. So either I will have was wrong in the first one or the second one, but I will I will never be right in both of them. So instead of saying you're a liar, he said to him, you're a loser. You're a difference. He didn't say you're a liar. You're a loser. And you had a jamatkhana tab and luck is this why you gather dust you wasted our time. So then the province of Allahu Allah He was
sent on to share with you something before Ebola hub spoke. The prophet sent ya Sophia, the prophets uncle. Yeah, Fatima, the prophets daughter. So and so he called everyone everyone. Save yourself from hellfire. I cannot save you, your faulty mother daughter of Muhammad asked me whatever you want from my money. I'll give you everything I have within the dunya but I cannot save you from the afterlife from the Astra. So then he said at the end of the day, many people do not know this line. At the end of the day, we will always be family. This is sutra him. This is ties of kinship. So remember that we're always family at the end of the day. Now right after he said that Ebola who his
family. He cursed him back. He says you're a loser. You wasted our time. To show you the Prophet did not break that line that we're always family. He did not curse him back. He did not embarrass him.
He did not degrade his own blood uncle who embarrass the Prophet in a way in front of everybody. So I said, Let he really live by that line, we will always be family, Allahu Akbar. So I asked Allah to allow you and I to be like that, right? Because Ibrahim did it to his dad. We're always family. His dad spoke bad about him. He respected his dad. Now I will have the uncle of prophets. I seldom spoke bad about him. Then the Prophet did not reply back. Did not say you're the loser. He did not say well, you just don't make sense. Uncle. You just said I never lie. So now you tell me I'm a loser. Why did he not tell me I'm a liar now because you can't say I'm a liar, Uncle, you know why? Because
you're the loser. SubhanAllah. He could have said all of that, but he didn't know what it was.
But now who who will respond?
Allah subhanaw taala will respond. And this is this is quite terrifying. Like, can you imagine no one who will defend the prophet is not Abu Bakr, not their alma, not there is not an attorney, not Prophet Adam, not prophet nor not Prophet there isn't a prophet Musa, not Angel Jibreel not Angel mica is not an angel. It's often not the carriers of the throne, but the one who will respond and defend is Allah Jalla Jalla himself. Why?
Because Ebola had caused big damage. And the answer has to be equal and more than the damage will have caused. Ebola what he did is that he was the first one to open the door of insulting the Prophet ourselves. You will not find the prophet ever, ever been insulted before that day. Some people knew there's Islam some people know of the doubt. Some people heard of that call in the mountain but no one ever insulted the Prophet and his own blood family member was unfortunately the first one to stop the fraud. The first one to curse him was Ebola, and he deserves a response to that wickedness. Why? Because everyone that insults the Prophet till this day, the one who will
perhaps be held accountable for it is I will have so I want you to imagine Allah subhanaw taala reveals some verses to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the verses do not just talk about Abu Lahab it also talks about Abu Lahab his wife why what happened let me tell you what happened.
On Sol Sol Allah Allah Azza wa sallam one time authentic hadith he was sitting next to him about the Serbian next to the tab after this public announcement. And then the wife of Ebola, she was so angry, and she got a massive rock. And she was heading towards the prophets of Allah. He was selling them. But she was not able to see the Prophet. Why did she have an issue with her sight? No, she sees pretty well. But Allah blinded her from seeing the prophet Isaiah, who was next to the Prophet will focus on them. So she went to a book and she said, Where is your friend and she had a big rucksack? Where's your friend? Where's your friend on smash this rock on his head? Where is he at?
Now because he was confused, he's like, it is anything amazing. The prom is like, right? Like, what to the Queen is your friend? She then she told him I heard that your friend spoke bad about me and my husband. Ah, is that true? Is it true? Then a kiss of death? Or the Ronnie says, My Prophet doesn't say you know any vulgar language does not curse your your husband? Obviously not the prophet is Allah Who sent that and you know the insult to our will have right. So she said if I some are smashed in with this head, then she left so bookless addicted jasola. Like, how could she not see you? Like what was that? So basically, it was Allah's protection. And now I want you to imagine,
Allah reveals the full Surah of and method 111 And it also applies to all Allahu alayhi wa sallam. I know some people get shocked when they hear the following, but this is an ayah in the Quran.
Allah says, Without account well Ali Baba will occur when if Muhammad wa sallam were to invent altar, edit the Quran
that has an admin who believes in Allah says we will capture him some Mala cotta, and I mean, who was in the New World shock, his neck will cut this off. We will cut the prophets neck This is an operon warning the Prophet and threatening the prophets, that if he were to make stuff up in the religion of Allah and the Prophet would never do something like that, but the warning is to the Prophet, then imagine you and I imagine us right if this is the prophets penalty if he were to do something like that, why am I saying this? Because Allah revealed the surah have a message and the Prophet without a doubt. This is having that now he has said that but yeah, the IB there have been
whatever he has to say my uncle basically the uncle is going to be cursed.
He's gonna go to hellfire. And I want you to imagine he will not hide the idea because it's my job to convey regardless of how heavy and painful it might be to me or to my family, it is an Amana. So imagine he stands from the cabin as an example, Allahu Akbar, at the mine people hear the prophets re citation because something very known about the prophets I learned is that he used to read Quran in public by the way most Sahaba did not do that. It was the Prophet SAW Salem, you would read the Quran in public. That's why Amara Delano in one narration that is sound he heard the Prophet read the Quran in front of the camera so he was public. Allahu Akbar. But yet the law had been WhatsApp
Can you imagine the people who my God have to just hear this Come come come come Ma. And whom who am I in number one? May the curse be on Abu Lahab my other now angle man who am I'm Kassab. His money will not benefit him what just happened here? Who can help me out?
I am number two, Allah saying his money is not going to benefit him. Why is he saying that?
Why is money not going to benefit him? What do you think? He was rich? Yes, he was actually pretty rich. He was very rich. Okay, fantastic. Because he was proud of his money because that was his priority. Nice. Does Allah fantastic. You're there and as that is the closest? Okay. Alia? Ah, go ahead.
All right, go ahead. And yeah.
Like, at the end of the day, on the Day of Judgment, money doesn't matter. It's just your good deeds. Fantastic idea, excellent Dr. His money will not benefit him. So you know what happened earlier? A lot exposed that reason why I will have did not accept if you want to quite well, how come I will have never never became Muslim. We know it Allah said Your money will not benefit you because he thought I will have thought If I accept him as a prophet. That means there's no idol worshipping, which is our main source of income when people come from out of Mecca to buy and sell, and I'm a businessman. I don't want to lose no customers. How do you Mohammed, you stay on your own
though deep inside, I know you're a prophet, but I'm not going to jeopardize my business. So his business and money is the reason why he rejected as one of the core purposes. So Allah is exposing this. Now this will come as a shock to him to Ebola as How did he know? How did he know that money was my thing was in my mind, the business etc. So man, other than that, no matter what Marchesa then Allah says, saya salah, now Iran, he will go to hell, what can I help now on that lab? That type of flame lab is that flame of the fire? And look how amazing Allah puts it. His name is Abu Lahab and the type of fire is lab because something to match him. Why is the law why is he known as Ebola one
of the reasons in about the description of his body is that he was very handsome and he had some redness on his cheeks Subhanallah you know people like after a very hot shower, very red cheeks. That was something natural. He had people put makeup for this thing, right? No, he hadn't natural he was so rich, so handsome, so influential. And that love that brightness. No, you're gonna go to hell with that fire. There's so bright that will burn your brightness, Allahu Akbar.
This line not on that Allah. Not just that one Morocco and his wife, her mela tell help up. She will carry these rocks and his fire stones and punishment why? Remember the rock that she carried? That rock that she wants to smash the Prophet with? You will not just carry one rock but multiple rocks were in the hellfire and she will not even see Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Fiji the hair around her neck is what hablo mean message is a rope of fire that shocks her and burns her. Now another thing here. She's also obsessed about jewelry. Right? It's all about the jewelry, the necklaces that diamonds I don't want my husband to listen to know Mohamed because I want those brand name purses,
brand name shoes, this car this vehicle. So they were on the same page. But on the wrong page. Right May Allah forgive us yada Bill Alameen. So here Allah sent these ayat to defend the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and look how insulted Abu Lahab is. So much so that even the youngest Muslims, even the ones that know little Quran, this is one of the sources they know till this day, they understand that yet the Latin word, right for that one curse. So one of the things we want
to take from here is that we need to be inspired by the Soron. Brother inspired What do you mean inspired? How can I be inspired, be inspired by the fact that if you start something that is good, every single one that follows you will be rewarded Subhanallah so I pray to Allah that every single thing we're doing with our mantrip, sister have some May Allah grant or Jana and the whole team you guys heard the introduction. We had the fact one night we had the Quran program, Ramadan, 360, all these things going on. I asked Allah to make all of this on the scale of deeds of Sheikh Mohammed Sharif Rahim Allah, right, the founder of Al Maghrib Subhan Allah. Now this is a tear, there's
another layer, what's the other layer? Sister Hafsa? How is she now part of this? Because we opened the zoom session. She opened the gyms I was waiting in the lobby, you're all in the lobby? Subhanallah right. So her opening it may Allah make all of us who benefit in your skill of good deeds Subhanallah so on and so forth, all of you that showed up. May Allah grant you all jendela Malala mean? So look towards establishing something that is no that is within the realm and accept the exit acceptability of Islam. May Allah grant us wisdom. Now, that's the joy that I wanted to share with you, but also the fear, which is what if we start something that is wrong? We don't just
are held accountable for what we did. Every single one that imitates us, does, what we do will also be on the scale of that individual that started the bad habit. I'll give you a quick example. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says an authentic hadith. Never is the murder on Earth. Can you imagine how many people are killed on earth like unjustly? Like, oppressively so viciously like that? Anyone who was ever killed will be on the scale of who the sins? Who? Who will take the sins of every murder? Yes, the one who killed his brother, the two the worst of the two sons of Adam money center. SubhanAllah. So that's something to be very careful about. So may Allah grant us
wisdom and jamnalal. But I mean, it is 533 I can open up the floor for any questions or any comments or any concerns. Now when you read it, you read it with pride. But yeah, the Aveda had in one tab, with the color, that tab at the end is called color by the way, it's very powerful. Make sure it says essentially, maybe we can talk about that more in sha Allah, Allah grant the origin Bismillah. And we know that I mean, just like have a left arrow shift. Actually, before we jump into questions, I just want to check. We did have a really important presentation today. And I'll give people a chance inshallah maybe to take their questions here in the chat, so that we can take them in order
until afterwards, but I do want to give some time to some of our partners with this Ramadan, we've been partnering with three organizations that have done an amazing job we've done actually, this is the second or third row, you're in a row with them. And one of our beloved organizations is forgotten woman in the UK. And their appeal is really close to my heart, especially because this is one of the most kind of vulnerable groups that we have forgotten women and children and some of the poorest countries in the Muslim world. And they're going to share a little bit more we had a humblebee honor of being joined by Sathya, Sajid and the beginning of Ramadan and it's a great honor
to have you Baxter Saudia. So does that qualify for being with us and for partnering with us once again, and inshallah pass over the stage as Santa Monica what happens the left wanting Sonoma rubrica to and does not want to hear about having me again, and for interrupting to do great, great sessions for Hanlon, allowing us to have this small amount of time in Sharla, to be a voice for those who don't have a voice in short allowed were they in front of us, we would definitely use one and it's our job each other my job to try and give you their story in sha Allah so that you hear what's going on in their lives and that we can respond in Charlotte in kind. Now last time I was
here it was with Saturday me as a session and we did an amazing amazing around fundraising my shot I love the hearts was so responsive. So again, I pray that Allah grants me the right words, but also that he opens the hearts and he unlocks the hearts in sha Allah. But as you listen in sha Allah that there is a response in kind mean,
we're going to be doing the same fundraiser because the need is so great. And the fundraiser is for the widows and the children in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, many of you may be aware, if you're new to the sessions, then inshallah we'll recap. The situation environment is very, very bad. It's horrendous panela the economic fallout of the invasion, the US invasion, leaving and leaving a big vacuum, a power vacuum, then the Taliban came in. And as a result, the international forces actually froze their assets, their foreign assets. And so the country has been in economic freefall for over over almost two years. Now we're coming up to and as a result, people have lost jobs. They've also
endured a famine, they've gone through COVID They're going to
through a lot of the fallout of COVID, economically as well, and it resulted with people's Panama giving everything that they caught selling everything that they had over 95% of the country became food insecure, overnights panela. And as a result, there were women and children who they'd already lost their partners find Hassan country that's been under occupation for almost over 40 years, a lot of the men have actually perished through this conflict. And so there are a lot of women, widows, they're single women raising children. And in that vulnerability, in the actual moment of vulnerability, they are being exploited the women and the children. And if it's not the woman's
hand, and the biller having to sell her own body or her organs, then she's having to make the choice of whether to sell one of her children in order to keep the rest of her family alive. That's how desperate they are for food. And so we've got to move in a charity that has been set up by women for women, they tried to break that cycle of poverty and to protect women and children from that additional exploitation, they're already vulnerable, they've lost everything. But what forgotten women want to do is try their very best to give that woman the one thing that she has, which is her dignity, let her keep that and have the dignity to raise her children, as she should, should be able
to, without needing to beg without being dependent and rely upon anyone else. So forgotten, women are an amazing charity, I work for many, many charities, and I'm really, really happy to support this this organization, especially because of what they're trying to do. They're not trying to be the biggest and the best and reach the most people, they just want to be the one that offers the safest solutions in sha Allah. And for me, this is an intelligence solution as well, we all work very, very hard for our money, we really do work hard for our money. And so as the donor, we should be looking to see how do I make my money, this money that I've just spent raised, have worked all
month for how do I make it go as far as possible, so that it has a long lasting impact, and that's Inshallah, what we're going to be sharing with you today in China. The project that we're doing with forgotten women is actually a project where, rather than just giving this widow and her children, a food pack, or sponsoring one child in her family for years at a time, until the child reaches 18, what we want to do is actually empower the woman herself, give her a business, a livelihood, that she can then run either through the males in her family if she has a brother or eldest son, or we'll give her a business she can run from within the home. But we will work around the social, the social
customs and the sensitivities. And we're able to then lift that woman completely out of poverty. Within months, she's raising enough money to cover her rent her food, and her children's clothing, their medical bills, the children that have to go into school, that's a must. That's a condition that we put on the family that they must enroll their children to back into medicine and school. So their children have to then go and pursue education and again, lift themselves out of poverty. But finally, we really, really believe that this is the solution for not that they stay rely upon us, but that we go back to them and we say we're going to take you by the hand, we're going to give you
something that's going to lift you completely out of poverty and inshallah you yourself are going to raise your child and you're not going to have to sell your body to do so you're not going to have to sell your organs to do so you're not going to have to drink your children to sleep because you can't hear the bear to hear them crying anymore. And you're definitely not going to have to sell your children to to do this plan. And this is actually happening right now on the ground in Afghanistan. I don't know whether we've got time to do the video have sad, but we want to just quickly put the ask then inshallah for people to donate, I'm gonna just try and push as much as possible to donate
Inshallah, you're probably wondering, okay, I hear this solution, I understand the situation, how do we give, the way you can give is by making a one off payment of 1000 pounds, or any amount contributing to that. But 1000 plan is what it's going to cost to literally lift a woman out of poverty in advance. And this is a widowed woman, she's lost her husband, she's lost everything in the economic fallout of what's happened recently. And subhanAllah, she's already given all of her white goods, her gold, anything that she had of value is already gone. They're nourishing themselves on still bread. If they have that. That's not food. That's not what we should be allowing and
accepting for our families in Afghanistan right now. But what we can do is we can actually lift these people up completely, giving them that one off payment of 1000 pounds means for the rest of her life, she's settled for their livelihood, and she and her family can continue to support themselves. I really hope and pray that you understand that we're offering you a solution as well. So you don't have to support though they are normally we would offer you are offered sponsored. She's a widow, she's got a child, they sponsor the orphan, but it works. She has several children. Rather than sponsoring several children. We're saying, let's take the woman and empower her. And
then she can look after her entire family in sha Allah, and she'll have that dignity inshallah to be able to look after her children without at all leaving any leaving anything to the vulnerabilities of other people to exploit in sha Allah. We don't want anyone to exploit these women we want them to be empowered, is 1000 pounds to help them if you'd like to rather but rather than to give a Valders maybe that's a lot for you give any amount you wish to to that amount.
And inshallah it will all come together and we'll be able to just as 1000 pounds of collected will be able to keep on empowering and lifting more and more women out of poverty in Afghanistan. The other alternatives if you want to feed people were in the month of Ramadan, these people are opening their first Subhanallah with stale bread and hoping and praying that people will come forward and give them food, you could be that person and you could be the person who delivers them with a food pass as part of that and that food parcel when it when they receive it, it's coming up and actually the team are in Afghanistan right now. So they will deliver it if the money comes in number deliver
it right now. Because they're on the other side of the world already, they can purchase the supplies, they need to make sure it's delivered. But they can do that. And that means for actual eat itself for the rest of Ramadan and eat, those people are going to have food, they're going to have food on their tables, not still bread, actual food inshallah. So you can take the option of either giving a 50 pound food pack, which will give them food for about five to six weeks, or you can actually do something a lot more long lasting, making your money work harder, where you want to give once and that's it, hello, that sister is helped properly, and she no longer needs to rely on
anyone, not me, not you, not anyone else. Only Allah Subhana Allah Who sends the customers to her in sha Allah, to lift yourself out of poverty, that her children can go to integration, and they can have any any needs met, whether it's new clothing, whether it's equipment, whether it's any medical cares, Pamela, all of that mess man. The situation it was that I can't tell you how bad it is. Unfortunately, we can't capture a lot of this on camera, you've got women who cannot tell you on camera that they've they've actually sold their bodies, or that they've had to sell their children, it's just too painful for them. So inshallah I hope and pray that you can get behind this appeal,
and really understand that we're really trying our best not only to work hard for our sisters there, but also to work hard for you as the donors, the people who work so hard, you also have a Yasaka and is eligible can go so far, if you make the right choices in investing in solutions that don't just last for a month or two months, but actually last a lifetime in sha Allah. So with that said, I'm going to leave it and hand it over to him so inshallah I hope you shall know that you all donate deeply the last 10 Days Are Here this is possibly an odd night could be little to give in the hopes of seeking a little calorie shot Alas, I would like to live with regard to
it can Western and when I have mental I have indicated a desire Kamala Harris at the eyes of Hannah, this, this appeal is very, very close to my heart and there's nothing you can give more to somebody of value than a feeling of safety and security. And for someone to be so low at the at the complete bottom point of their life where they have no choice but to either sell their own body, or to sell the child that they gave birth to is such a difficult, it's hard to even imagine that. So the link is that forgotten woman.org forward slash on Maghrib. I know you guys give very, very generously last time, don't think about the amount do as much as you humanly can. I know. The best sadaqa
jariya is of course the instant income that that's that's how you just mentioned that allows them to take themselves and give give themselves ownership over their own lives and support their families for years to come. Try to give that we learned from this talk just now that you want to avoid doing any bad that would carry forward you want to replace that inshallah with good that would carry for for years and years to come. So consider that or whatever might you can give, but just get in sha Allah. I know this is it's an emotional time or it's an emotional thing to experience or think about I'm so grateful for forgotten woman for starting this initiative and for allowing us to be a part of
it. It's an honor to have you guys back for the last 10 Nights.

So it was a very, very painful moment in the front awesomes life very difficult on the his two daughters.

I also wanted to just check the link was working and make a small donation. And I was like, You know what, there's a number that I had, in my mind, I was like, let me
just make that number. And it was a little bit more than I was comfortable with at the time. But I was like, you know, I thought it so I'm going to do it. So I clicked and I did it. And then Subhanallah just literally less than 24 hours later, not even 12 hours later, that morning, I received a refund from an airline that I had been chasing for three years to the date. I check the date later, march 28 or something it was like March the end of March 2021 or 22 madness like beginning of COVID that they had not been refunding me I'd been chasing them I gave up I was like you know what, I just can't this money is theirs now and then they just dropped into my account
Subhanallah so I didn't have to call them up I didn't have to do anything. So whenever you give a lot of returns that to you and this is something where you know if you were ever in this position and now the law protects all of us, you would want the people to turn the entire earth around to make sure that you've never had to experience the suffering that these women experience.

But you know, subhanAllah people are people are really looking forward to these things.
And hamdulillah just just before I began just an answer to somebody asked this question, you know about the sons of Abu Lahab. So I will have had five or six children and two of them. Two sons. One of them was actually married to overconsume, the daughter of provinces seven but the marriage was not consummated, and he divorced her. He never ended up accepting Islam his name was taper. He was one of the ones that promises eliminate the DA against that Allahu Malaika your bureau table Allah Allah Almighty Kavita be to have a Bucha hell in all of these and then
are Taiba who was once upon a time and son
In life, nobody says hello I'm actually really was disrespectful for Prophet sallallahu Sallam so prophets Allah, Allah made a dua against him. And he said Allahumma Selita Lee he killed them in Kill abiquo Allah let a dog from your end come and take care of his affairs. So what happened with him was that he was he escaped at the time of Fatima and he moved all the way to someplace called zurka in the sham area it says sham I don't know which exact country that areas or part belongs in today. I don't remember off top my head. And he was in a group of people and they were sleeping and
By the way there leopards found in the Arabian Peninsula till today. So a leopard came and amongst all the people that were sleeping, he came in he just grabbed him and took him and devoured him alive in front of everybody else. And as he was being eaten alive by the leopards and narratives, they said that the DUA he said, had Mohammed This is the daughter of Hamlet that has come true as he was dying and being eaten by the leopard. The other son was Autobot and the robot ended up becoming a muslim so he did accept Islam at the hands of Nabi SallAllahu sallam, and you know and he was with Prophet at toward the end after Fatima and stuff he ended up accepting Islam. That was the answer
somebody asked so I thought just provide that information to whoever asked I didn't see the chat so
Alright, let's begin inshallah. Bismillah
All right, where is my church?
All right. Let's bring up people Bismillah who wants to come and start reciting this word this surah everybody should be able to like actually get 100 Hands up this is like a sort of everybody can recite let's see want to put up your hands you want to come and recite and let's do that. Somebody that hasn't recited so bring someone that has not recited Yes, it could just be me for some reason I see Wikipedia for it with that even Abby Lahab are really
at excellence I see the Quran. Okay, can everyone just confirm that they see Quran or Wikipedia?
Let me just see. Try again.
Okay, the cell we see wiki I think it might just be the window. I've through three monitors. There we go. Very
similar, but so who's gonna come bring somebody who hasn't recited?
Let's see, we got six people with their hands up. My memory is not the best. Let me see if I could find. I see. I mean, that looks like a new name. Bismillah. I mean, go right ahead. Let's go. I mean, Salam aleikum, WA to live wabarakatuh widely considered working to level tattoo. Go for it, brother.
This means your man you're watching.
Okay, can you guys see it? Yep. The birdie or the dealer. Have you met up? Man? I wanna Oh man. Oh, who am I? Kasaa saya Slann out on that and I have one more or two who have a little hotter. Fiji de haben me method Jamil. MashAllah vertical feet? That's amazing.
Where did you learn to recite?
Go ahead speak.
Where did you learn to recite?
I did I mostly learned from listening to other spiders. Mashallah, mashallah amazing martial? That's amazing progress. If you just learned just through listening, that is just amazing. Progress mellows bless you. So I wanted to touch on today, the surah. I'm sure that the she covered the context and why this was revealed. We're going to look at the verses. But before we go into that, let's go in understand this a little bit. And I'll go through that same book that we've been going through. Oops, why is this thing getting stuck? Alright, here we go. So this surah has multiple names, right? Number one, it's called surah. Al Masjid. Okay, Alma said number two, it is also called su rock
that, okay, it's called Suraj. Tibet. Next name is Seurat IV Lahab. The surah is also called salt IV lab. And last name for the surah is Surah Tibet, Jada IV lab. These are the four different names that have been mentioned in Tafseer books about the surah the surah is obviously in it really it was really in Makkah, you know the context and practices Salam invited everybody he went up on the mountain. He said, If I tell you about this thing, and he said that been Lexa in the home that you know me, he said that to prophets of Salaam and this surah was revealed the main method of the surah. The main purpose of the surah is that it doesn't matter if you who you are related to it
doesn't matter who you're you know,
Who what type of connections you have? What type of network you have those connections those fraternities don't really help when it comes to to Allah subhanaw taala and you believe in him. So over here, either men fat in this world Johanna Alko for a builder. If a person is not a believer and you don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala those connections that you have, oh, I am a son of this and I am a daughter of that. Those things don't really matter.
Even the son of Nabil new new Haile Salam, right, he said to Allah subhanaw taala in the Bunnymen alley, my son is from my family. So Allah subhanaw taala, he responded back to him and he said in the holidays, I mean, and he's not from your family.
He may have a a genetic connection to you, but he's not your family. In the Huambo, don't label solid. He has an animal, his armor or label solder that he is not a person who has pious deeds. So your armor your good deeds become the source of your true connections in dystonia. And Athena, you can have those genetic connections, you know, biological connections, but the real connection is your animal in your silo, how many good deeds that's the real connection at the end of the day. Okay. Now, we'll read quickly about what this is sort of talk about, again, the summary of what it mentions over here for those that are Arabs, they can read this, but it is basically the surah is
all about how Abu Lahab was destroyed, and the entire conversation about that destruction. There's a lot of lessons for us over here in the Surah and we'll get into that over here together. So first, that but Jada? Why is Allah subhanaw taala.
Referring to to both hands of Abu Lahab
question for people.
What Why refer both hands? I mean, what's the purpose of mentioning both hands? Okay. Your good deeds become true source of accurate knowingness, okay, what's the purpose of using both hands? Why not but instead of yada, but yet Avira hub.
Okay, beautiful. So beautiful. Somebody said livelihood beautiful. So it is referring to that anything so when we say I did this with my both hands? You could have also done that thing with your one hand but an English language really say it's metaphoric right? Yeah, I did this was sometimes people say in Arabic language li l
li yet fill Masjid. I have a hand in this Masjid. Right? What does that mean? You even chop off your hand and put into Masjid it's like you were involved in this semester so it is talking about that but yeah da Vila heavy water that wherever his hands get involved in whichever things that he gets involved in whatever he does.
There is going to be nothing but destruction for this person. Okay, that's one meaning the second meeting the Arabs when they say yada yada but the medina Id come what you have presented to in front of you be Id come in front of your hands Maka dama tree light so whenever Allah uses the word ad it means whatever that person's eye where are your hands when you put your hands forward? Right whenever you put your hands over here when he's standing here whatever is in front of you. So yet ordain in Arabic language is the indication of that person's existence so I this is my existence and whatever is in front so tough but yeah da being that whatever is in front of Abu Lahab that is going
to come his hands ie the existence of Abu Lahab and whatever is going to come in front of him what dub and Allah is like and that that is coming is an absolute destruction. This is a second meaning which is sometimes not translated or lost because we don't you know, go into different translations of Arabic language. Next
Next question, what was the real name of Abu Lahab?
just a hint
Karim Abdullah Rosa good. Why not use the word of De La Rosa.
And why use Abu Lahab
I mean, in the entire Quran, Allah uses actual names Why use a Buddha
why not use Abdullah resides more more you know, why use especially when we say I will fool and the Arabs in there you know, you can give me a one in this if you know this, whenever we say Abu Abu Abdullah, Abu you know ohms on Aisha, it is a source of the cornea is a source of what respect so hey, that we give respect for why is Allah giving Abu Lahab respect in the Quran and not using his name
Questions of pondering because we always read these things. We don't believe in idols, okay?
So in the entire Quran, how would we search this? How would we find this answer? We would look at the word ABD. Okay, we would look at the word ad.
Because he was proud because there's his respect became punishment. Okay, but that's a good point. That's a really good point of FIFA. His respect became punishment. Yeah, that's a really good point. A FIFA can you bring her up want to talk to her? A FIFA, if you're here, raise your hands. It doesn't matter if you're
there. That's a really good point. I Sharla. So tell us more. Why do you come down to LA? I mean, a lot of a sudden you I send them ala Nabina. Muhammad, I mean
that, although he has his two hands, everything, he acquired everything he had, but it is from Allah that Allah provided those things for him.
Okay, and he, he became ungrateful. Okay. So it became ungrateful. And it I think it's a way of, you know, like, it's like a warning, I think because he was still alive. When the sewer was built. If Allah wanted, he could have abrogated it or something. Like yeah, time and it's a form it's a form of disrespect for him, right. It's a form of disrespect sometimes how, you know, a person is being persecuted or they're being you know, sentenced. And in that sentencing, they come and they say, general so and so is going to be court martialed with so much. So it's a sentence in that sentencing. They intentionally refer to that person's rank and status within the Army to let others
know that don't be like him. Right? Don't be like this person. That's number one. So it is like a subtle insult while you're still putting that you're putting that person on the pedestrian but then disrespecting him right. That's number one. The second reason for that? Let's hear from bahaya money's behind who needs
I'm sorry as hell am I
I didn't I wasn't falling now. I was I had put my hands up just no right. No problem. No problem. No. When you fall in I cannot answer.
I cannot answer to those questions. No problem. No problem. We understand. The Bellagio problem, chakra. Okay, so if you look up the word in the Quran, if you go and you search the word out in the Quran,
if Allah had mentioned a la Rosa,
then the entire the it becomes completely antithetical to the entire existence of Quran Quran is so hate. Because then Allah is like the slave of Allah Rosa, which is the name of one of their gods. So that's the second reason why the Almighty said that Abdullah Rosa mentioning that would have affirmed a subtle level of * that, you know, Allah affirmed the servant of Allah Rosa. So that's the third reason, second reason, the third reason was, and this is the most powerful reason, and I asked a lot, that I'm able to explain this, because when I read it, I was just sitting there, I'm like, how am I going to express like, because in Arabic, it sounds so amazing. And I was like,
sitting there, I'm like, How do I spin this in English, so that we can all understand it. So, so, you know, so this, this requires a little bit of understanding. So was a Bula Hubbs name Abu Lahab before the Surah or after the surah?
Before Okay, beautiful. So before he was known as Abu Lahab before, and why was known as Abu Lahab. Before because of what, because of the redness that was in his cheek and he was an exceptionally handsome and beautiful person. Right? Like as as you know, the Instagram world would say he was a 10 out of 10, right, like, like Instagram world like so, he was a lead from all angles from money from power from, from every single aspect, he was a 10 out of 10. Right so and he looked handsome and he had power and all of this.
Now, this is where the amorphous sirloin and the people who pondered upon that they said something so beautiful, they said, and this tells you the father of Allah, that long before the surah was revealed, Allah inspired the people
within that society, to name this person, Abu Lahab which means, you know, the father of amber or somebody who looks like you know, orangish reddish Amber, and that name became synonymous to him and became famous, but only Allah knew that in the future
Future that name is also going to be part of a surah, which that name will also hold true that you are the one who is being punished because Abu Lahab the one who was sentenced to fire or the one who belongs to to, you know,
like a trade off Amber's. So over here both names, in one part was true in one element of his life that the beauty and it reflected that but it also was that Allah inspired people to call him and imagine that you generally the Arabs would never call people with with objects, they would always called people with Ebola Akbar, the son of Ebola and Ebola and at the sons, they were always referred to sons, but he was never referred to his sons, despite having sons, powerful sons, none of the Croatia result of calling him with his son's name, rather, he was always called Abu Lahab. And this is how the color of Allah subhanaw taala works in his mysterious ways that people Allah will
inspire people, right with a certain name because Allah knew that in the future, that name is going to be used for this surah number three, the third point that we want to take away from here is Abu Lahab had a very simple way out and I'm sure the channel size managers would have mentioned that he could have come out and said, Amen La Ilaha illa Allah and the entire discussion would have been over, but rather Subhanallah his reaction to the sorrows were completely opposite to that. Okay, next part, my elder Now Andrew Maluku waymarker sub so over here, this man
in the Arabic language mark and have this is this just a
side but I think some sometimes it's nice to understand this.
How many different meanings of Mark and be there?
Six mark and have six meanings in Arabic language? Okay. Okay. Mark can have six means beautiful. So can we bring up Sierra? She said six let's let's let's see if she remembers all these six.
Sierra or era Syrah No.
i By the end of Ramadan, 360. We gotta learn how to sit instead.
I don't know.
Okay, okay. This is different theater is
Syrah okay. Okay, Syrah so tell me the six
it's okay. If one of them isn't No. Okay. Enough. Yeah. Okay. Another one is like
which, like, What? What?
One is like
I love it.
I love it. So much
that I live in that which okay, then you have
I don't I don't. So
questioning you've got the negative you've got
No, no. So then you have a dad job. You have my dad job ma Svara how patient are you on that? Okay, as a surprise, right. And then and then you have the last one, which is Nokia and Nokia. So there are two there is negation and there is a lot of fear. Sorry, my word fear. Good luck. Allah had a verb the place that place which the police had now over here in this entire surah Allah has used all of the types of months
that's the whole point of this exercise. Okay, most of those so for example, this man and now he now he our the amount of negation, okay, ma Zina, okay I didn't who it did not avail him okay.
You can also have a questioning mouth and I know what will avail him model who his man miles an hour you know what will make him available his money right? So all of these different masks can come in in different meanings. I don't want to confuse you in those many people are going to walk away with like, oh my god, there's like 10 different versions of the video that I will have you but I'm done with Arabic today, sir. alikoum I'm leaving. Right. So so the point is this map in there in the tafsir books has two different meanings. This Ma has two different meanings. Mark I said what he earned and maca sub that which he earned. I eat it was a consequence of something. So Marchesa what
his money earned. Ma Elena and who Maluku that his money did not avail him. That's one meaning. What did his money avail him? That's a second meaning what Mark is up and what is his money? What, what that money earned. So there are two meanings over here.
his money will him that's one meaning his money did not avail him that's a second meaning all of those meanings will come mashallah somebody came up with the entire I liked that so, who's this person?
It's their idea to mashallah Jimmy and they even brought those show up they even brought those things exactly the and stuff which are in excess you know Tanzeem and Xactly there but again there's not a grammar class though please don't leave anyone we're not going into grammar because usually the grammar begins like us like I am just about to exit gate so Allah is saying my whole mind who am I said that neither did his money benefit him neither what his attorney brought to him say US law the word say US law is very powerful because diocesan right you'll see loan to reach
and what is the connection between he will be burned and reaching? Because saosin That person is going to read somewhere is generally used salsa is over here used in terms of burning what is the connection?
What is the connection between reaching and burning
to want to bring up if you want to raise your hands come up.
Okay, I see a couple of hands make sure you lower your hands if it was for previous response that you had them raised. Otherwise, let's show that Alia go right ahead.
I'll repeat the question again unless ALLAH is asking from burning, I'll repeat the question. So So yes, still that person is going to reach you know, for example, say Mata Yasin era when is the airplane going to arrive?
That rude word is the same as Gessler to burn and what seems to be the connection between them
beautiful, somebody said that. So yes, that IE he his final destination he will be taken to that destination and he will arrive there only to get burned over there.
And Allah protect us from that. So yes, Allah ie he will be taken from where he is. And there's an imagery over here that he will be taken while still and he would reach that place is that he will also be burned in that nah run, he'll be burned with fire that Allah had. This is really interesting because Allah called him Abu Lahab and his cornea was Abu Lahab and Allah used his name his name very similar to like the the punishment that he will be given is very similar to the type of name He has because in Jahannam you know the real amount they have described that there's more than 70 The we know seven more than 70 Plus types of punishments that we have documented proof from so he had
these some will be done this way some will have this some will have that all different types of punishment, but his punishment is going to be something very similar. Did Did he mentioned did chef magic mentioned about his
one which day his punishment is going to be reduced
Okay, so there is a day on so let's see if you guys can figure it out. So Abu Lahab
there is a day somebody said it already Mashallah. MashAllah you guys have like really nice like, I love this kind of like, you know, I don't even need like a you know, everyone knows it like, mashallah Monday. So whoever said Monday, come on up and tell me why on Monday.
For designer, I see Farzana inside. Ah,
okay, let's any one of those. Let's go.
On, let's hear from you.
Yes, I want you
to understand that Sam was born. And then it was the day when he would not have allowed one of his servants or I think there was a way but the way he voted Yeah, she converted. Yeah. And he allowed her like, making gestures with his fingers, that you're allowed to go and feed her. So last along with your milk. And more importantly, he showed, and this is a point I think I want us all to understand. So Abu Lahab will have a reduction on his job every Monday. Yeah, and he would be allowed to drink some water as well. I read to some I don't know about that there. I mean, there's a lot of extra stuff that was added. I don't know if that was from the Hadith. But Allah I'm not sure
whether it's authentic but I read it somewhere that he allowed to wear drink some water and a reduction in his punishment. Yeah, so the question here is why was this production not because he allowed swaybar to breastfeed Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, but there was something else
because like he was the uncle for some lessons Allah man he felt some sympathy at that.
And for his nephew, sympathy or happiness,
happiness as well and sympathy as well. So it mentions that he became so happy that out of his happiness he freed that slave.
That you know, he was so happy that when the news arrives, let go, you're free, out of that happiness. So the Allama they said the Farhat eg that because he heard the news about the verse of Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he showed momentary happiness on that day that he was born and upon the news of his birth, Allah subhanaw taala is going to reduce the adverb on him for every Monday. Then for you and I, we need to ask this question that do you even feel the happiness that we belong to the amount of Nabi Muhammad Salah seldom do we feel that momentary joy for a second, you know, that irrespective of that debate that people have between you know, whether you should celebrate
molars or not, that's irrespective debate, the debate is, do me as an individual do I feel that momentary happiness when the month of raviolo will come that do I feel happy that Rasul Allah was born, because the greatest blessing on the OMA of Muhammad as an ummah, what is the greatest neuroma? Some other scholars say, it is the birth of Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for us. Because without that Norma all the other bounties don't have Islam would not have come. So his birth is the greatest neuroma for this Oma. So we all ought to show this momentary happiness towards the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And over here, every Monday and this is a connection to this
thing that he will be burned and he will have a punishment of blazing fire. But on that day on every Monday that will be reduced, due to the momentary happiness that he showed towards the Rasul Allah says, Allah may Allah subhanaw taala, grant us all a heart filled with the love of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then comes the story of his wife.
And this is an interesting part. And before we get into that, sometimes, and oftentimes, a person may decide that I want to go or an individual may decide that I want to go left, and that is the wrong decision to make.
But if you don't have a spouse that can counter your wrong decision, and bring you back to the center, then it becomes very difficult and very scary, because that couple can end up becoming a really big issue for themselves and their akhira, but also a bigger nuisance for the community and the society. And we see this time and again, this is not just a Bula hub. And you know, I'm jameelah. You know, I'm Jamie and not these two, but it was also
you see this through out. You see this sometimes in mass murderers that they're, you know, you'll have like somebody within the spouse that was complacent. They knew all along that their husband or their wife was doing something, they were complacent. And they were okay with it. They, they allowed it. And this is a very important lesson for all of us. Again, marriage is a very hot topic, everybody wants to get married and this whole thing, but in this thing, the question you need to ask and you ought to ask beyond any other questions, I know that we are living in this, this world, which is super driven by physical appearances. And I see this time and again, see this time and
again, where you will have a brother, you know, he may not score 10 as a physical experience, appearance, he may be like seven or six, whatever, depending on the standards. But the brother will have everything else in the category that provinces set them told us to check that he has a good Hello, and good Dean. But then oh, no, but he doesn't fit that category. He does not the upper echelon of you know, what a man is supposed to be. And the same thing goes for the brothers brother will come and describe to me literally on this weekend trip, some brother came to me and said chef, want to get married. I said, mashallah, what's the type of wife you're looking for? And they're
like, oh, yeah, we're looking for what? Chef? I'm very simple person. Okay, I'm very simple person. I am looking for a woman that's maybe five foot nine, five foot 10 You know, she's got to be slim build, you know, preferably blue or green eyes. If not, then I'm okay. I'll be humble. I will take brown light brown eyes to I'm listening. And the guy's like, and then and what else as like Yeah. And you know, I want that she's like this and then she starts describing at the end of it. I was like, heavy.
You know, you'll get that in Jannah and sha Allah, not in this world because with all this physical characteristics, and you want all of these, I mean, it is possible. I'm not saying it's not. But we got to get realistic about these things man like and that's why many of us were not getting married. We all know this, you know, in the chat, you know, you know this. You are people that are 25. There are 2025 2627 28 sisters, brothers
And what ends up happening is if we're not making the right decisions, and the decision of our marriage is supposed to be on the look and team characteristics, and then what we see in our Willa hubs situation is when the DIS the marriage was on any other reasons. So there was a marriage for a tribal reason, there was a marriage for a business reason, there was marriage for money, whatever marriage could be for many other reasons, right? If other reasons are at play, then that group,
that couple, the chances of them being on there on behalf and remaining on top is very little, sadly. So again, I hope that Allah subhanaw taala grants, all of you that are not married, you know, spouses that are highest virtuous, that respect you and those that are married that Allah subhanaw taala. flourish, your Eman but this is a true story that how a man and his woman she supported the man in that truck tyranny and now both ended up in hellfire.
And this is a really sad lesson from us. So over here Allah says one or two who and his woman or his wife, Amal Atoll, hubbub, subhanAllah, she is the one that you know there's two meanings one, that she was inflaming the fire of emotions in this dunya that's one meaning. And the second meaning over here is on the Day of Judgment, she will be tasked with the task of burning fire for his own for her own husband and may Allah protect us from that. Fiji the ha habido member said and in her neck, ie she's going to be punished in a manner that she's going to have a palm fiber mess it is a very harsh rope like if you hold on to it and if it slips if you're holding like you're doing a tug of war and
if you're holding on to it and slips your hands it will it will you will have literally burned marks and you will have to put cream on or something right so yeah, like a jute rope. So So you have that. And basically Allah is saying that you know that is wrapped around her neck indication of one. Some of the older mothers say that habit with acid is the indication that her knifes controlled her
in Ramadan is a great time for us to tie and untie that, that knot around. The second is
it the second meaning of that is it's a color that is burning around the neck. The third meaning is that it's a form of shackling, so she would be shackled on the day of judgment and the rope would be what will allow her to go all the way to Abu Lahab to to inflame the fire. And and also the other other the other reason some some people they say is that, you know, she was very proud of herself. She was very proud she was a woman that was full of pride and sometimes to to control that person's plight pride Allah subhanaw taala will punish either punishment of the people who have arrogance is very similar to punishment who committed Zima Zina it's a punishment of a similar category, the
punishment who used to talk a lot, their mouths are going to be ripped open from the side. So a law punishes people based on their internal states. And this is a punishment very indicative of her arrogance. And she used to believe that she's the most beautiful person she'll only give birth to all of those things are being played with this statement. One minute or two hammer that'll help the woman she is his wife and becoming the carrier of the word cgdi Hablo Ma said that in her neck is the rope that is made of palm fibers or a color of fire may Allah subhanaw taala protect every single one of us from from entering in hellfire and may Allah make us all from Allah homematic Could
it have been Amina nor Allah free us from hellfire? And as I mentioned before, this means that Allah frees your name removes it from the list of hellfire. So may Allah make us from those
who have been removed from the list of hellfire and placed on the list of of Jannah in sha Allah may Allah bless you all dark Lo Fi calm and I give it back to
have sown Sharma
I mean just like Kamala Harris she made that was incredibly beneficial honestly, it's really it's It's insane how many practical lessons we can derive from what we do not want to you know, embody in this couple of Subhanallah such as I love her great reflections really good martial engagement in the chat you guys are getting better and a little scary fast mashallah, with their responses, keep it up, keep that energy going for the last 10 days. Make sure that you guys are attending live this is where people tend to drop off this is where people tend to get busy and like oh, I'm too sleepy I'm gonna catch up I'm gonna nap during this time before so we're sorry Athar, but try to make that
time to to join us live in sha Allah I'm not going to inshallah take any more time I just want to make sure that you guys as you're leaving Inshallah, just focus on the one thing that we were focusing on today's do support the Forgotten woman appeal if you guys are having any issue
