In the home that Allah has set out for Salam O Allah film bf y la Li he was happy he will Manuela

00:00:11--> 00:00:12

on my bad

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

we are continuing with a

00:00:17--> 00:00:29

series of footbaths on soroka have in the life lessons from social graph which protect which Allah subhanaw taala centers to protect us from the jab

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

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith that is narrated in Al Hakim and the hubby.

00:00:39--> 00:01:01

He said we're recites sort of the graph in this in the manner in which it was revealed. It was for him as a light on the Day of Judgment, from his place where he was to live to Makkah, and whoever decides the last and versus the last, and if and it happens that the judge should appear after that the judge will not be given power over him.

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

In another Hadith, which is

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

recorded in Muslim, and also by mom, and now we in the other side ahead.

00:01:14--> 00:01:24

It's supported from a Buddha or Delano that just realized that a lot is seldom said, anyone who arises tonight from the beginning of photograph will be protected.

00:01:27--> 00:01:39

inshallah may allow us to memorize the first step is the last time I added sort of a sort of graph, and to also recite the sort of the graph regularly on

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

last week, we

00:01:44--> 00:01:57

looked at the first of the four stories, that sort of the graph has Asia which represents one kind of test, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from all tests, and to help us when we are tested.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

The first story of the cup had to do

00:02:03--> 00:02:20

with the with a test of faith, of the with the envy of young men of well known as Hulk have the test of faith that they were faced with, and which was nilay Dahl and with his help, they succeeded in passing.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

When we saw how Allah Subhana Allah helped them

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

when they chose to protect their Deen

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

and did not give in to the

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

demands of their people to give up their religion.

00:02:38--> 00:02:41

Today, we look at the second test which is a test of wealth,

00:02:42--> 00:02:52

the story of the owner of the two gardens, and lots of Valentine I mentioned the story of the man who had blessed, but the man forgot the one who had blessed him

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

and he transgressed and had doubts in faith. He did not give thanks for the blessings even though his friend reminded him

00:03:04--> 00:03:23

and then when his crops were destroyed as a punishment, he regretted it but it was too late. Let us reflect on what we do with the money that Allah has given us. Seriously, today, if you look at it, for most of us, we are able to do May Allah protect us from this, we are able to do

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

what we do,

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

in terms of the transgression, Savalas, ranadive because we have money.

00:03:31--> 00:04:07

If we didn't have this money, we would not be able to indulge in the Seraph and indulged in the Haram that we otherwise do. We only do it because we have the money. The question to ask is because Allah subhanaw taala gave us money? Do we spend it in things that please him? Or do we spend it in earning his anger? And what kind of sense does it make that we take something which Allah has given, and instead of using it in ways which are both enjoyable, as well as halal, and therefore they earn the pleasure of Allah? We take the same money and we use it

00:04:08--> 00:04:47

to earn the anger of Allah. Why would anyone with any sense and the anger of Allah, the only question the only answer to that question is that the only one who will earn the anger of Allah is the one who does not believe in Allah. Seriously, I asked you my brothers and sisters, ask yourself this question. Do you want to die with human or without even see this you do want to die with him and have you have a document? Do you really believe in Allah subhanaw taala seriously, go sit down somewhere quietly by yourself and ask this question, you know, get the foundations right because if the foundation itself is wrong, then no matter what you build on that foundation, it is going to

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

collapse. So all the knowledge that to begin with, without looking at the Foundation, because without looking at the diet without looking at the task of the nuts without looking at

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

With less This knowledge is of is going to be 100 against us on the Day of Judgment, obviously not getting knowledge is not the solution to that because ignorance is not

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

is not an excuse in law. Ignorance does not protect us from what the law what the law says if you break it, but

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

also ignorance is not defense in law.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

So, the question is that when we

00:05:28--> 00:05:34

when we have money What do we do with this money now, do we have the same attitude as this man had

00:05:35--> 00:05:55

that when sever and then when someone warns us against spending the bounty of haram ways that we get angry with them we get irritated with them and we we blame them and we you know, may Allah protect us we actually try to harm them is this the correct attitude? Think think about that Think about that. See? What happened to that man?

00:05:57--> 00:05:57

When he

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

when he did that, you know when he did that what happened to that man? Do we want to be in the same place as that man I asked Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from this level of foolishness.

00:06:12--> 00:06:18

Well, that's what I'm gonna mention. How do we learn I'm going to show you on the regime Bismillah Nana Rahim

la Manuel buena Xena to Hyatt in dunya. While back to solid had you been back they had to say they're hard to fail on and because of Avon.

00:09:02--> 00:09:35

So the hola hola como la swatara said, and put forward to them the example of two men and one of them we had given two gardens of grapes. And we had surrounded both with dead palms and put between them green crops. Each of those two gardens brought forth it's produced and did not fail in the least. And we cause the river to gush forth in the midst of them. What a beautiful description and what wonderful orchards and fields on either side of a river, of what beautiful how beautiful it must have been.

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

And how huge and vast

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

and then unless it only had property

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

of fruit and he said to his companion in the course of their talk. I am more than you in wealth and stronger in respect of men, and he went into his garden in a state of pride and disbelief in a state of arrogance.

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

And just to himself, and he said, I think not that this will ever finish. So what do we do? What is our attitude with regard to what Allah has given us? How do we treat what Allah has given us? We are arrogant with Allah subhanaw taala and we think that whatever we have will last forever

00:10:21--> 00:10:39

We do not think that this will ever go away, somehow law Allah protect us. And then unless it and I think not the hour will ever come and if indeed I'm brought back to my rub, on the Day of Resurrection, I'm surely I surely will find better than this, when I return to Him, this false

00:10:40--> 00:10:49

hope in the in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala when we are disobeying him, is one of the biggest traps of shaitaan

00:10:51--> 00:11:01

shaitaan does this Chetan tells us that we are allies allies before him, we are committing haram and somebody tells us Look, don't do this, this is how you will be punished.

00:11:02--> 00:11:08

Don't worry, these are all these monkeys and they have no sense. You know, this, just forget that applies for him.

00:11:10--> 00:11:50

And this is what is mentioned in this ayah he was a man was being arrogant. He was transgressing his boundaries. And when his friend reminded him, the man says don't worry about that, you know allies have over him. I will give me better than this when I when I meet him. inshallah We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us better than what we have today. But what did Allah say when and to whom will he give better than what they have today? Not to people who use what they have today, in haram ways, not when they are not to people who use what they have today, in ways which anger Allah Subhana Allah, if you are earning the anger of Allah, then you will get the anger of Allah. You're

00:11:50--> 00:12:30

you're working to earn the anger of Allah, and you expect to get his pleasure. I mean, how is this possible? Then? What about the man or woman who's working to earn the pleasure of Allah? What should they get? You are working to earn the anger of Allah and you get the pleasure of Allah. And the person who is working to earn the pleasure of Allah also gets the pleasure of Allah, then where is justice? Where is justice? Now this is a this is from chatter, this is shatta, who makes you believe that it is possible to try to earn the anger of Allah and you will still get his pleasure because he's over him. We do not deny that Allah subhanaw taala is for him. And we also do not deny that he

00:12:30--> 00:12:45

is shunted to the cup. Allah subhanaw taala will punish for things where he said he will punish. So it is time for us to make Toba immediately, instantly, without any delay whatsoever. And ask Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with us and ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us.

00:12:46--> 00:12:54

We continue Anima 37 his companion said to him during the talk with him, dude, dude is believe in Him Who created you out of dust

00:12:55--> 00:13:36

that is otherworldly Salaam, then out of not far the seminal fluid than fashion do unto a man. But as for my part, I believe that He is Allah, Myra, and none shall I associate as partner with Myra, it was better for you to say when you entered your garden, that which Allah wills will come to pass, there is no power. But with Allah. If you see me less than you in wealth in children, it may be that my rug will give me something better than your garden. And we'll send on it anyway sent on it meaning on your garden has been that installment of a bolt of lightning from the sky, and then it will be slippery earth or the water of your garden becomes deep sunken underground, so that you will

00:13:36--> 00:13:55

never be able to see it. And so his fruits were encircled with ruin. And he remained clapping his hand with sorrow over what he had spent upon it, while it was all destroyed on its trellises. And he could only say wood, I had ascribed no partners to my rub. I wish I had not ascribed partners to my IRA.

00:13:57--> 00:14:34

And he had no group of men to help him against a law, nor could he defend or save himself. Now thing to ask ourselves is this that what was the ship that his man was committing? Was he worshipping someone other than Allah? So what was the shift? And why is he saying I wish I had not ascribed partners to my you know, arrogancy ship to keep up to God he was making himself Shrek. He said, This is my doing I have done and I have got this and that and his arrogance, this is a form of ship that to to put yourself in a position and not thank Allah subhanaw taala and to say that all you have is because of yourself and because of your effort and so on so forth. And to us what Allah subhanho wa

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

Taala has given in earning the anger of Allah subhanaw taala This is to make to have partners and ascribed partners to others. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from this. And then Allah, Allah continues, and number 44 there on the Day of Resurrection alone I have the protection the power and authority in the kingdom will be for Allah alone. The True God He loves Thailand.

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

is the best for Award and the best for the final end, like the high low in, in the law, none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and put forward to them the example of the life of this world it is like the water, which we sent down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and becomes fresh and green, but later it becomes dry and broken pieces, which the winds scattered, and allies are able to do everything. Well, the children are the adornment of the life of this world, but good righteous deeds that last are better with your up for award, and better in respect of hope.

00:15:38--> 00:15:49

love America reminds us that one day we will stand before him and answer and he told us about what happened to shaitan when he disobeyed Allah, and one was against taking him as our friend instead of Allah.

00:15:51--> 00:16:05

What an evil exchange what an evil exchange that is, think about this, who, but someone who has no Eman who but someone who does not believe in Allah will take shaitan as a friend instead of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:07--> 00:16:49

Now, but if you look at ourselves, you know, we say that we believe in Allah, we say that we want to die with the man, we say we have demand. But yet we take shaitan as our friend, meaning that we do what Shannon tells us to do. And we take schatten as our friend instead of Allah, meaning that we deliberately knowingly disobey Allah subhanaw taala. And who does this people who consider themselves to be clever people who consider themselves to be intelligent? They do this, not only do they do this, but they invite others to do this. And when someone says, No, I am afraid of Allah, I will not do this. These are the people who poke fun at them who mock them, and we'll try to

00:16:49--> 00:16:58

pressurize them into coming down the same path that they went down, which is the path of disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala how intelligent is this?

00:16:59--> 00:17:12

Can you see this? Do you have to think about this, that all these today we have all these great cool friends. You know, all these cool friends are going to be in a very hot place, if they don't straighten up before they die. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:13--> 00:17:22

does not like people who not only disobey Him, but to also try to lead others astray. People who try to be the one who leads others astray.

00:17:23--> 00:18:04

And the people who try to lead others astray are the people who the Quran mentions chahatein Amina Genie Whelan's, these are the shuttles from the gene and from Deepika from the human beings. So let us not become chatons from the human beings. Allah subhanaw taala warned us against what the shaitaan did. Allah subhanaw taala in the ad that come after this one from 47 onwards, Allah Allah said and remember the day we shall cause the mountains to pass away like clouds of dust, and you will see the earth leveled as a level plane and we shall gather them all together so as not to leave anyone behind. I think about that the mountain unless Rotella mentioned the mountain and surah Nava,

00:18:06--> 00:18:45

what did you buy? Oh, Tada. He said, The mountains are pigs, they are the symbols of strength, the symbols of power, and they are set on the earth as pegs to stabilize the earth so that it does not it is not it doesn't shake, and the same mountains, we will see them but before our eyes, like clouds of dust, what a day that will be We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his protection from the horrors of the Day of Judgment. And adversity will level the earth and he will gather everyone and they will be set before your Robin lines, Rose soften sofa, and the last minute relevancy. Now indeed, you have come to us, as we created you the first time may but you thought that we had

00:18:45--> 00:19:03

appointed no waiting for you and that the book of record will be placed and the book of record will be placed in the right hand for a believer and in the left hand for a disbeliever We ask Allah subhanaw taala to decree that our Book of Records is given in our right hands. And then Allah said and you will see the Muslim own fear for what is recorded there and

00:19:06--> 00:19:49

they would say ma de la ciudad de la salida de la la Kabira. Whoa to us what sort of book is this? That leaves nothing, neither a small team nor a big thing, but has recorded it with numbers and they will find that what they did, they will find it placed before them and you are treats no one with injustice. And he you know Allah subhanaw taala talks about these people who on the day of judgment will stand before Him in their heads hanging in shame. They will say on that day they will stand before him and Allah subhanaw taala said well oh one oh Tara is ill Mooji Muna na ki Susi Mandara beam Robin app sama was a man for the anomalous Alia Nina mukuru. And that's what I did. I said you

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

will see them on the Day of Judgment standing before you oh my enemy if you could see them standing before they wrap their heads hanging in shame and saying Robin absolutely

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

All our rug we have seen was Samana we have heard for Jana returners to the earth in mocha known for Gen animal Sally hanina mocha known as return us to the earth and we will do good deeds and we will become obedient people and let's remember that I said nothing that will not help them on that day. If the if we have been doing criminal things and remember criminal things is not only what is criminal in the in the in the country's record, it's what is criminal before Allah subhanaw taala to leave one Salah is criminal to leave on Salah is Cofer to spend money, like water is criminal it is Islam. Allah subhanaw taala called the people who make will do is love the one who shayateen he said

00:20:43--> 00:21:19

in Namibia, Xena Cano is one of shatin he said the people who do is rough. These are the brothers of shaitan. If you have been doing that it's time to make Toba It is time to stand with your head hanging in shame here in this world. Because you can do something about it, you can make Toba and you can return to Allah subhanaw taala so that inshallah on the day of judgment to head will not hang in shame. But if we don't do that, and if we put ourselves in a situation where on the Day of Judgment, we will have our head hanging in shame, then Suhana nobody can protect us. And let's run intelligence is number 50. And remember when we said to the angels may says that to Adam, so they

00:21:19--> 00:21:45

made a joke, except the police and he was one of the jinn he disobeyed the commander was Rob, will you then take him a police and his offspring and his children as protectors and helpers, rather than me while they are enemies to you? What an evil exchange is this? What an E what evil is the exchange for the Solomon? And remember Allah subhanaw taala has always mentioned here Solomon, and he says misery more.

00:21:46--> 00:22:31

Which means that it does not. The word does not refer only to the people who are not Muslim. It refers even more to the people who are Muslim, yet they behave as if they are not Muslim. So Allah we should really think about that and say, Allah, how can we escape from this shaitan and we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his protection, that we should not, we should not follow shaytan and that loss of mantella will will help us in sha Allah, because that is his. That is his promise that if somebody comes to him with Toba, that somebody comes to him with genuine repentance, that inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will forgive that person.

00:22:32--> 00:23:12

My brothers and sisters, I advise you and myself never to do anything that displeases Allah subhanaw taala no matter who else it pleases, and never to do anything that pleases anyone, no matter who that is. If that displeases Allah, I again and again gives the same examples, because these are the things which are the most visible in our society. Allah subhanaw taala ordered the women to to be to wear the hijab. But what do we see our sisters doing? We see our sisters deliberately going against that we see them deliberately. discarding the hijab, we see them they wear the hijab, when they come to the masjid, is the hijab only for the masjid.

00:23:13--> 00:23:53

This behavior of a certain type of dress in a place of worship is not from Islam. This is the this is the way of other religions. People wear certain kinds of clothes to go to the temple or wear certain kinds of clothes to go to the church and then rest of the time. They do whatever they want. This is not Islam. Islam is to be the same thing. Whether you are in the masjid, outside the masjid, the Islam there is no difference between Islam in the Muslim and Islam outside the masjid, in the masjid, we are before Allah subhanho wa Taala outside the masjid we are also before Allah subhanaw taala it is this realization which is the meaning of taqwa. What else is that what the point is to

00:23:53--> 00:24:29

realize that we are standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala so Allah you know, a man has done a lot to lie. Somebody asked him they said, how is it that you're so disconnected from the world? How is it that you are not connected to the world and disconnected meaning that not that he didn't know what was going on disconnected meaning there's no love of dunya in his heart, so they asked him, How is it that there is no love of dunia in your heart and hustle and bustle have to let me get this beautiful, beautiful answer. He said because of four things. He said, firstly, I know that my sustenance is written for me, whatever is written for me will come to me, I and no one else can eat

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

what has been written for me. So he said, I don't worry about that. He said, second thing is, I know that all good deeds, all my good deeds, I have to perform them myself. No one else is going to do good deeds on my behalf. So I engage myself in trying to perform those good deeds. He said the third thing is that I'm always conscious that Allah Subhana Allah is watching me and therefore I am ashamed to commit sin. He said, I am ashamed to go and sin because I know Allah is watching us. I don't want to do something, which is which is which is which which will make me

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

look bad before Allah subhanaw taala. And he said, The fourth thing is that I am convinced that one day I will die. And when I die, I will stand before Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore I tried to prepare for that particular day, I asked myself, do we believe that we are going to die? Or is it the only Hassan berseria to die? You know, do we believe that we are going to die? And what is our preparation for that for that time? What is our preparation for that death? May Allah subhanaw taala give us the tofik to do this before the time comes because we have no idea when we are going to die. I invite you my brothers and sisters to take some time out and reflect on and examine our lives and

00:25:35--> 00:26:18

see what there is in our speech. Now attitude, manners, actions, priorities and decisions, which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala and to do everything in our power to immediately and urgently get rid of it. Don't worry about anyone else in this matter. If you are displeasing Allah, it doesn't matter who you are popular with, because that person is not going to come with you in your grave. So wake up, before you are put under the ground, the relationship of social capital to the jail and inshallah Next time I will complete this, the set of four things, the relationship of social capital, the jail, is that one is the test of the gel will is a test in four ways. One, he

00:26:18--> 00:26:58

will ask people to worship him instead of Allah, that's a test of faith, to he will order the sky to rain and Allah will make this happen. And he will tempt people with his wealth, and this is the test of wealth. Third, he will try people with knowledge due to what he reveals to people of unknown things. And inshallah we'll look at that next tomorrow, as well as the next one, which is he will control major parts of the earth where it's at, and that's a test of power. So the first is a test of faith. The second is a test of wealth. The third is a test of knowledge. And the fourth one is a test of power and authority. Allah subhanaw taala taught us these lessons, so that we learn to

00:26:58--> 00:27:47

strengthen ourselves before we face our own day of reckoning. The day we die, which will come announced, I remind myself and you that we should be very careful and prepare for that day before that day comes because once the curtain is lifted, once we see monochord mode, the door of Toba will be closed. I want to end by teaching you a DA I taught you one last week. I'm teaching you another one this week. And the door is a door opener we saw Selim he said Allah Manoj Gina aminul Phaeton mazara minha mama baton, Allahu managee nominal Phaeton, Zahara minha mama baton, Allah manage Gina Minelli, Phaeton, Sahaja minha my baton, or Allah save us from trials, those which are obvious, and

00:27:47--> 00:28:16

those which are which are hidden, save us from trials, that which is obvious, and that which is hidden, we make this door and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us and to be pleased with us and to enable us and helpless to do everything that is pleasing to Him and to save us from doing anything which is displeasing to him. Or Salalah highlanda veal Karim, Allah Allah He was happy. Germaine Greer Attica Hama raha Mina al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
