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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

In Al Hamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah.

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

Allah Allah He was happy

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

about

00:00:18--> 00:00:28

my dear brothers and sisters, I want to talk to you today about what I call the four step process. And that is a process of learning and teaching of this Deen.

00:00:30--> 00:00:59

It is very important because it's a process that has been prescribed by law spinal dalla. And it's a way by which we can measure our own understanding of the how we are approaching Deen, how does it help us? Is our method correct? Is our application correct and so on for us in terms of understanding and learning the deen and so also of course, for those who teach Islam, it's a process that they can use to measure the efficacy and the potential of teaching of Islam.

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

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned as a reason for sending his Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Surah Al Imran where Allah subhanaw taala said la Cadman Allahu Allah, meaning is by Sophie masuleh Minh home, yet Lulu Ali him it was a key him while limo Makita bubble hikma when can Omen kaaboo la Viva la de movie,

00:01:27--> 00:01:40

which means Allah subhanaw taala said Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has conferred a great favor nehama on the believers when he sent among them messenger Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from amongst themselves

00:01:42--> 00:02:11

reciting unto them his Ayah the Quran and purifying them from sins, and instructing them in the book of Allah. And while hikma, the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and unless vantara specifically mentioned when can women come to La vitola they move in very early before that they had been in clear and manifest error. Allah subhanaw taala sent His messenger Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do four things,

00:02:12--> 00:02:19

to recite to them the revelation as it was received, communicated as it was received,

00:02:21--> 00:02:26

then purify them, then teach them the meaning of the revelation what was received,

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

and then to demonstrate them,

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

how to apply this in their lives.

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

four

00:02:35--> 00:02:47

step process and Allah subhanaw taala said that until the coming of His Messenger sallallahu sallam, the people had been misguided, and in grave error.

00:02:48--> 00:02:54

These four things are not independent things, but they are a four step process. For one thing,

00:02:55--> 00:03:09

and that one thing is the way of communicating the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the learning and teaching of Islam and the criterion for us to assess our own spiritual development.

00:03:10--> 00:03:38

So what are these four things number one is to recite the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a good way, number two, to purify the exterior and interior, the body and the color, the GSM one knifes number three is to teach and learn the meaning of the Quran of Allah, Allah Allah and for to learn how to practice it in our lives. inshallah We will do this code by in two parts first part today and next part next Friday

00:03:39--> 00:03:56

because it's a detailed subject and I don't want to rush through it inshallah we'll do the first two today which is yet to Allah him it was a key him recitation of the Quran and the purification of the knifes and culture and then we will do the other two inshallah. Next Juma which is

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

UI Lima who will kita well, hikma insha Allah.

00:04:01--> 00:04:46

The first step is the recitation of the Quran. My brothers and sisters, I want to remind myself when you that the Kalam of Allah subhana wa Taala came as the spoken word. I want you to reflect on this, the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala came as the spoken word. Allah did not send the Quran as a piece of paper with writing on it. gibreel la Salam recited the column of Allah Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he recited it to those around him. Islam entered the hearts of people by listening to the Quran. It her it entered the hearts of people who heard the Quran, what turned the heart of Omar in the satara. Delano was listening to the Quran not reading it in a on in a book. And

00:04:46--> 00:04:56

this was the story of many of the Sahaba Rizwan raha a madman who listen to the Quran and their hearts opened to Islam. So the first step is to ask ourselves

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

a very simple question what happens

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

To me, when I hear the Quran, very simple question to ask what happens to me when I listen to the column of Allah? Does anything happen at all? And if something happens, what is it that happens? what is supposed to happen? Allah subhanaw taala said in in in his column in Surah Taha Allah subhanaw taala said loions Allah has Al Quran Allah Jabba de la Ito Hashimoto sogdian menasha de la wattle column de Luna de Mohali, na si la la homea tougher Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said, had we sent this Quran on to a mountain,

00:05:38--> 00:05:51

you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rendering asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the examples which we put forward to mankind so that they may reflect

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

what is supposed to happen when the Quran is sent on a mountain.

00:05:57--> 00:06:04

What would happen Allah say that if the Quran is sent on a mountain, what does it mean?

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

Put the book on a rock,

00:06:07--> 00:06:16

it means of the mountain understands it, if the mountain has this hazare of the aim of the Quran, what will happen to the mountain, it will bow in submission before Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

So what must happen to our hearts

00:06:21--> 00:06:39

when we listen to the Quran of the caliber of Allah, I will let me do a simple experiment with you. And I want you to carry on this experiment when you go home. I will decide for you to is on the forum. And I will tell you which ad those are. And then I want you when you go home to

00:06:42--> 00:06:51

read those two ads and see whether there is a difference between the time you are listening to the ads and the time you are reading the ions.

00:06:52--> 00:07:12

do the experiment for yourself and see Allah subhanaw taala also told us what is supposed to happen to us. Allah subhanaw taala said in namale mina la Vina Isa Sukira la hora de la kulu boom, what is truly at Allah him Ayah to Hosanna Tomita, while Arabi him Yes, our Cologne, Allah subhanaw taala said

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

that the moment in

00:07:17--> 00:07:41

the criterion of the believers, the woman in are those people who when the Quran when the name of Allah subhanaw taala comes before them, their hearts shiver with the fear and majesty of Allah with all of Allah subhanho data. And when the Kalam of Allah is recited before them were truly attached to him it zada to me mana there even increases while arrabiata walk alone and they have tawakkol and they have faith on their rub.

00:07:42--> 00:08:07

The Quran is clearly mentioning the changes that can that must happen as a result of listening to the column of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala also said in Surah Zoomer aventura Allahu sobre hora de Islami for hawala Nora Mira be For ye little Casa de pollo boom in the karela hula ecoffee la Li moving

00:08:08--> 00:08:30

along una Zara Chanel, howdy Ziggy tava Natasha, bm masani adopt a Roman Who? Duck Shire Roman modolo Larry and I have shown the home through metallian Oh, Homer kolomela, the karela de campo de la jolla de Maya woman

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

who mean

00:08:36--> 00:09:06

a lot Samantha said Is he whose breast Allah subhanho wa Taala has opened his he whose heart Allah subhanaw taala has opened to Islam, so that he is in the light from his rub equal to the one who does not recognize Islam is the one whose heart and he was Shara sada has been has happened, who's just has been open to the seeker of Allah and is illuminated by the nature of Allah. Is he the same as the one who is not no who is not a Muslim, obviously is not the same. They are not the same yesterday as it was.

00:09:08--> 00:09:28

Then Allah said, so woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah, they are in plain error. And then Allah said, Allah has sent down the best statement as the pool had easy Kitab Allah the most truthful statement is a statement is the Kitab of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:09:29--> 00:10:00

Allah subhanaw taala has sent down the best statement, a book the Quran, its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth. After repeated often repeat repeated the skins of those see how the Quran mentioned specifically changes that happen physically to us. Allah subhanaw taala says the skins of those who fear their rub sheer Shiva from it when they recite it or when they hear its recitation, then their skin and their heart are softened to the

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

remembrance of Allah, that is guidance of Allah subhanaw taala and he guides there with whom he pleases and whomsoever Allah subhanaw taala sends astray for him there is no guide.

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

What am I usually law who, from Allah whom he had

00:10:20--> 00:10:35

for the body, the physical changes, emotional changes to happen as a result of the recitation of the Quran is a sign of the guidance from Allah subhanaw taala. I asked Allah subhanaw taala for that for all of you and for myself inshallah.

00:10:36--> 00:10:41

So we need to check our hearts to see what is the effect of listening to the Quran.

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

And that's why I said, let us do an experiment.

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

I will decide for you the last two hashes.

00:10:53--> 00:11:13

And when you go home, I want you to do two things. I want you to read those last three years of soldier in Arabic. And then I want you to read the translation of those last three islands. And I want you to try to remember what you feel now and try to compare it with what you feel when you read the Arabic And when you read the Hulu or the English.

00:11:15--> 00:11:29

Right? I want you to actually experience this whole issue of the spoken word. The whole issue of the Kalam of Allah the Quran is not the study of Allah. It's not the writing of Allah it is the speech of Allah. Why do you call the Quran kalangala?

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

Why don't you call it the Quran? Allah, it's not it is the column of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

So Allah subhanaw taala in the surah

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

Allah subhanaw taala said, I will I will show it on

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Bismillah

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

r he lo

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

Allahu La

00:12:59--> 00:13:05

Mer, Hola, hola, Na, u sub B hola Who is

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

the one who is on highkey

00:13:14--> 00:13:26

I want you as far as possible to remember this and then you go home, pick up the Quran, read this, and see is the effect the same. And then read the translation and see if the effect is the same.

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

And voila, voila, he more than likely are going to feel the effect of the translation is more than the effect of the original.

00:13:33--> 00:13:44

You know why? Because you understand the translation they do not understand the origin. And that is a tragedy. Today the word of the translator has more value for us than the word of

00:13:45--> 00:13:56

any translation of the Quran is the is not the column of Allah, it is the column of the translator. It is the understanding of the translator. And that's why it does not have the same status as the color of obviously

00:13:58--> 00:14:08

my brothers and sisters I seriously remind myself when you that we need to understand the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the greatest tragedy that the oma which received the column does not understand the color.

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

So great tragedy. And it's an amazing thing that the people who did not receive the column not everybody, but the scholars among them, they understand this color.

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

But the heart is not open to the color.

00:14:25--> 00:14:32

The shadows the shadows other of those people is not there. So they understand the column but it does not go into the heart strange situation.

00:14:35--> 00:14:47

So let us understand the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala and let us understand its meaning and respond to what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us and let us be aware of and thankful that Allah subhanaw taala allowed us to read his column.

00:14:50--> 00:14:57

Let us reflect on how bleak and dark is the life for those who have no foreign

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

what would life be without listening

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

To the forum in taraweeh, incredible laid, listening to the recitation of the various chorion their beautiful voices residing the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala yourself, what would life be without this?

00:15:12--> 00:15:16

Make the sound of the column of Allah a normal thing in your homes.

00:15:17--> 00:15:34

The men sit and recite the column of Allah in a good voice, learn to recite it well and recite it in a good voice in your homes. Give your children memories. If your child thinks of you, let him think of you listening to your voice reciting the Quran in his house.

00:15:35--> 00:15:40

How many of you are here who have never heard your father reciting the Quran?

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

What a tragedy. You're born in Muslims ohms and you have never heard your father reciting the Quran.

00:15:50--> 00:16:00

At least don't do that to your own children. Learn to recite the Quran. Let your children grow up hearing the voice of their parents reciting the Quran.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

Let that be the memory that take away with them.

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

When I think of my father, when I think my mother

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

I can hear their voice reciting the column of Allah.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

Let us remember that Allah subhana wa Taala

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

said to Mohammed Salah Salem yet through Allah him it.

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:31--> 00:16:46

ordered is nothing to recite the Quran of Allah as he received it. When Allah subhanaw taala taught his nebby a way of presenting Islam let us remember that there is a reason for that. Allah subhanaw taala did not say give them that column in writing.

00:16:47--> 00:16:50

Allah subhanaw taala just say explain its meaning.

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

Allah subhanaw taala said recite the earth

00:16:56--> 00:17:08

recite the earth as you receive them. There is a time and a place for recording it in a book. There is a time and a place for explaining the IRS and we will come to that inshallah next Juma

00:17:09--> 00:17:29

but what is the first hookup recite the Kalam as they were received? explanation comes later. But first the recitation today it is customary even for many Daya to simply code translations. And when the time comes for them to decide they can't they decide badly because they never learned how to recite

00:17:31--> 00:17:41

big tragedy and that is not the tsunami masala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did not give translations. He did not give explanations. he recited the ayat of the Quran.

00:17:42--> 00:18:02

And people just listen to the eyes of the Quran and they said this is not the Kalam of a human being. This has to come from somewhere else. And that is how they came into Islam. If Rasul Allah Salamat, explained the IRS, they would have said yes, good we understand the explanation. This is what you understand and we understand from you were his ally in that explanation.

00:18:05--> 00:18:24

Even though it is the explanation of the ayat of the Quran, nothing wrong in explaining but where is the actual column of Allah Allah Allah and that's why very important for us learn as we it does not take more than two weeks. does not take more than two weeks. Learn does the Quran learn to recite the Quran? Well,

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

it's not a matter of tune, it's you're not seeing a song you're not seeing some raga

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

the understanding the farm of the Quran is the tune is the in the voice of the curry.

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

The tune in the voice of the carry is the understanding of the Quran. And that is why you can say instantly when you are listening to a recitation, you can say instantly

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

whether the Chari is reciting something he understands or whether he is simply parroting something he memorized.

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

You can say it in one minute.

00:19:04--> 00:19:12

Because you can understand from his tone, whether he is understanding what he's saying or whether he is just parroting something that he memorized

00:19:15--> 00:19:39

Abu Musab al Sharia law who was praying in Abu Salah Sheree was one of the core of the Sahaba he was one of the recitals among the Sahaba he was praying and he were reciting the Quran. he sensed that there was someone standing behind him when he made slim when he made salami turn around and de sola sola Salama standing behind and that's what a lie is a lie Sallam said tabula rasa. He said I love the way you recite the Quran.

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

And I said, Yasser Allah. If I had known he was telling me, I would have beautified my recitation even more.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

When Surah Al Burkina was received, when that's what was revealed. Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam went to Obi yBnL cab

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

He went to live in Cairo Delano and he said my Rob has commanded me to recite the surah before you and for you to listen to the surah

00:20:12--> 00:20:23

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to wavin cub, my robbers commanded me to recite this surah to you and for you to listen to the surah Obi when cops started weeping he said Dr. rasulillah

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

my rub took my name

00:20:27--> 00:20:31

as soon as Allah Salim said yes, you are Rob mentioned you by name

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

as Eva

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

what people

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

what people deserve

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam went to Abdullah masala and one of the one of the parameters of the Sahaba

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

and he said to Abdullah so he said read some Quran for me recite some Quran for me.

00:20:55--> 00:21:01

Delano Israel sola. You want me to recite the Quran to you when you receive this column.

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

sola sola Sallam said yes.

00:21:05--> 00:21:12

He said I like to listen to the column of Allah. In the voice of other people. He said recite the column

00:21:14--> 00:21:28

and Abdullah nimasa vilano started reciting and he came to desire for ke vida Gina min Coolio Murthy Misha he denwa Gina de cada una de shahida

00:21:29--> 00:21:42

in Surah Nisa, Allah said, how will it be then, when we bring from each nation a witness and we bring you all Mohammed Salah Salem as a witness against these people.

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

sola sola Salaam started weeping.

00:21:46--> 00:21:55

He started crying he started weeping because it was thinking of the day of judgment when Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam will be called to bear witness against those people.

00:21:58--> 00:22:09

And May Allah forgive us in sort of Africa? Allah subhanaw taala said what Allah is Allah mercy. And let me Salazar a Salam will say Oh Allah, these people put the book of Allah behind their backs.

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

They put the book of Allah behind their backs.

00:22:18--> 00:22:24

My brothers and sisters, the hardness of the heart is a fatal disease.

00:22:25--> 00:22:48

It's a fatal disease. And the sign of the hardness of the heart is dry eyes. eyes do not that Do not weep for the fear and majesty of Allah. I'm not talking about standing in front of an audience and crying that is real. May Allah protect us from that. I'm talking about standing alone before Allah subhanaw taala in

00:22:49--> 00:23:04

reciting the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala to him and weeping for the glory and majesty of Allah. We've been with thankfulness that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us the permission with this dirty tongue of ours to recite his column

00:23:08--> 00:23:32

thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala for the understanding of the column, thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gave us this permission, thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. They gave us the understanding of the column, understanding the Kalam and responding and reacting to the Kalam these tears are a sign of the love of Allah. They are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of connecting with Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:33--> 00:23:54

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that Allah subhanho wa Taala will make the fire of jahannam haram on two kinds of eyes. He said the eyes that weep for the fear and majesty of Allah alone when the when the object is alone with his robe and eyes that stay awake for the protection of the oma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

the fire of Johanna will be made haram on those eyes.

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

Reflect on the Quran connect with the Quran lead at least once in your lifetime cry for the glory of Allah. So that you come in that zomer of people who will be made free from the Hellfire inshallah

00:24:14--> 00:24:22

do something about the hardness of the hearts. Allah Martha said the whole mountain will crumble but swala we have mountains in our chest nothing happens to them.

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

Let us go to the second stage that I mentioned which is why use a key him

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

the hair of the body and the knifes the skier to knifes water be at two o'clock

00:24:41--> 00:24:52

we understand the tar of the surroundings the place should be cleaned. We understand that the hair of the body we must be in a state of Budo Vasile is watching we must make also the clothes must be free of impurity and so on.

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

But the other tahara which is equally important and even more important is the topic

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

Era of the cold war that the heart of the knifes dusky of the Calvin dusky of the knifes and the first and most important of impurities to be removed is Shrek. This is the worst of impurities and along with the other cover

00:25:15--> 00:26:06

must be removed and the knifes cleansed of it. There are two aspects of schilke, the visible and the hidden. The visible is to join others in partnership with Allah subhanaw taala. To join others in the worship of Allah or in the seeking of help from others other than Allah, this includes making sojos to graves, making dua to the dead, asking the dead for help. It includes the belief that somebody who is dead no matter who that is, can come to your aid or can help you in any way or can affect your life in any way like granting children curing diseases and so on and so forth bringing rain increasing provision and so on to ask the mother of anyone other than Allah is haram.

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

Understand is very clearly

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

to ask the mother of anyone other than an ally is haram.

00:26:16--> 00:26:38

I say today those of our Sunni brothers and sisters who think that saying Yeah, Rose mother is dies. If your mother dies, then Ya Ali madad is even more dies. Because la mina Vitara delana was a Sahaba sola, sola, sola. And if your mother dies, then the Christian saying yeah Isa mother does even more dies

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

because he's Allah Sarah Minami of Allah.

00:26:42--> 00:26:56

So, Jelani is not bigger than the enemy of Allah and share. Gilani is not bigger than Alameda Vitara Delano. And I live in Tulum is not bigger than the NaVi of Allah is Allah salam, the let us all become Christian inshallah.

00:26:57--> 00:27:03

Because that is the truth. If what you are saying is the truth, then what the Christian is saying is the ultimate truth.

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

Have some shame make Toba

00:27:09--> 00:27:27

on the Day of Judgment. Abdelkader Gilardi will stand with a hunter in his hand and drive you into janome. And behind him will be alive in Abu Talib with another sword in his hand and he will drive you into jahannam and behind them will be easily solemn who will drive his followers into janam because they join them

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

00:27:38--> 00:28:03

understand this very clearly to ask the mother of anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala is haramaty shirk, if you have been doing it because no one guided you May Allah forgive you made power now stop doing it right now. If you are wearing thou ease with some stuff written on it, break it and throw it in the garbage we got a grip in here and we got a red bean outside Take your pick.

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

If you have got red threads on your wrists, that is what the Hindus were go to a temple

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

or cut that thread.

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

When when you learn this one monokuma concept for you.

00:28:19--> 00:28:24

That is when you want to hand over the threat tobacco mouth he will take the threat and you

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

to a nice red place.

00:28:28--> 00:28:29

Not ready to color right in

00:28:31--> 00:28:48

La La La quwata illa Allah in Allah He windy la Rajan may taba now stop committing shark. The biggest shark in the heart. The biggest filth in the heart. The biggest garbage in the heart is Shrek. rivets. The second big garbage in the hardest cover

00:28:49--> 00:29:00

to deny the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to run your own knifes in that position to deny the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and to do what you wish is covered.

00:29:02--> 00:29:32

Understand this very clearly. Clean the heart from shirk, and from cover if you want to stay in Islam and if you want to die on a man because if you cannot even do it today when you are nice and well. What will you do when you are dying in your last moments when he believes will be sitting at your head and exercising his entire power to take you into Chicago for today you are doing it without him even trying? What will you do when he actually tries

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

I asked the protection of Allah subhanaw taala for all of you and for me from this fitna and ask Allah subhana wa Taala to enter us among those for whom it is written in color that we will die with the man in sha Allah. But make some effort. Make some effort just means standing here and saying is not sufficient. Make some effort. Remove all share can all cover from your lives and do it now. Don't hesitate. Don't do

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

Wait, do it right now.

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:30:07--> 00:30:11

one of the hidden aspects of Shrek is to think of

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

somebody else when you need something before you think of Allah.

00:30:18--> 00:30:31

Even though that thinking of someone else may be helpful, I'm not talking about this shirt now. I'm talking about for example, one of my shoes was to say, he used to say when you have a headache, what do you think first dua or da.

00:30:33--> 00:30:41

used to say you have a headache. What do you think? What is the first thought that comes to come into the mind? I ask Allah to take a pen, or I look for talent all across in whatever?

00:30:44--> 00:30:55

You see what I'm saying. Now, is it haram to Italian not is 100 cozy? No, of course not. By all means go and eat medicine. The question is when you are when the salic is moving closer to Islam.

00:30:57--> 00:31:16

What does he do? Number one, he leaves Haram. Number two, what does he do? He leaves or doubtful things. Number three, he leaves all macro hats. He does not say is this macro Tansy, he or Tommy is it small, big? No. He wants to get close to Israel. He wants to become among the only Allah What does he do?

00:31:17--> 00:31:29

He leaves he leaves all mystery at ease all the doubtful things, he leaves all magro hats. And then what does he do? He also leaves some of the halaal

00:31:32--> 00:31:41

What is the need for this? What is the proof that to get close to Allah you have to also leave halaal I will give you a proof from the book of Allah

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

subhanaw taala

00:31:45--> 00:31:49

anything I tell you in sha Allah will be with the least not my opinion.

00:31:51--> 00:31:58

What is the proven the Quran? That to get close to Allah you have to also leave some halaal

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

anybody

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

quotevalet como sia mukamal kuchibhotla la de la mina Cabo de como la la Combe, that taco.

00:32:16--> 00:32:27

Allah said fasting has been prescribed on you like it was prescribed on people before you saw that. You may become people of taqwa you may get close to Allah. What do you do in fasting?

00:32:28--> 00:32:29

Do you really haram or halal

00:32:30--> 00:32:44

halal haram you left already? When you say Laila, will you lead haram? But in fasting What do you leave halal? Eating of halal food? Not Jai is haram from the morning to the nights?

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

Yes, drinking our water drinking of Zamzam. If somebody says well, you know, I'm fasting but this is Hamza

00:32:52--> 00:33:01

dies? No, no, the Saudis actually remove the even the pots and everything else from the heart they don't live with any temptation at all and

00:33:05--> 00:33:10

being with your wife being with your husband, is it dies or not dies? dies.

00:33:12--> 00:33:31

When you do halaal with the intention of pleasing Allah does Allah subhanaw taala give you reward for it or not? He gives you what? But what do you do during during the month of Ramadan? What do you do any time that you are fasting, Ramadan, Ramadan, you leave halaal and why do you leave halaal so that you get close to Allah.

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

Brothers, sisters, remember this day will come

00:33:38--> 00:33:44

even today that is the case but on that day it will become clear to us the only one that matters is Allah.

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

ask Allah to make it clear to us today.

00:33:50--> 00:34:08

Because no point in this becoming clear to us when we when the last when the breath is in the throat. No point is that will become clear that becomes clear to everybody will you mean the biggest cover in the world will become absolutely clear to him when his bread is thought the worst enemy of Allah will know

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

that the only one who matters is Allah. And at that time

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

Yeah, Attorney Khun totoaba

00:34:17--> 00:34:19

he will say Oh, I wish I was just

00:34:21--> 00:34:41

no point in knowing that that time the point to know is now ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this in Kesha for us to open this to us that the only one who matters is Allah subhanaw taala if you are doing anything to, to that displeases Allah, no matter who it pleases. That thing is trash and rubbish and that thing will take us into the hellfire.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Don't worry about popularity. Don't worry about popularity. Don't worry about which TV screen you're on and don't worry about which conference you are at none of that matters at all. 00 value. What matters is will is whether Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased or not

00:35:02--> 00:35:04

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:35:08--> 00:35:09

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned

00:35:11--> 00:36:02

about getting close to him about this issue of this year. Allah said lantana lobera Hata tune FICO mi moto a boon wama tune comin Shane, for in Allaha be here Eileen, Allah said by no means Will you be able to attend to all bill to the level of piety and righteousness that pleases Allah, unless you spend in the path of Allah, that which you love Hata taco mimma to have bone that which you love. And whatever good you spend, Allah knows it well. The criterion here is not the amount spent, but the quality of what is spent. Spend what you love the most in the path of Allah, in order to attain piety in order to reach him in order to please Him. For some people, money is easy to spend, but

00:36:02--> 00:36:45

they have no time to spend for Allah for other people, they have time to spend for Allah, but they will not spend money for Allah. So for each of us, we have to see what is most beloved to us and spend that in the path of Allah. So it is our inner self that needs to be developed and made obedient to Allah subhanaw taala Allah did not say spend in the path of Allah that which is most expensive, Allah said spend in the path of Allah that which you love the most, some things we love may not have any intrinsic value as such. For example, we may like to sleep just before fudger and that may not have any intrinsic monetary value, but that we wake up in order to please Allah

00:36:45--> 00:37:25

subhanaw taala So, we are spending that lovely time which I like so much to start before Allah subhanaw taala and that is to spend in the path of Allah subhanaw taala for some other people it may be something else, the bottom line is that it is up to us to prove to Allah subhanho wa Taala that we love him more than anyone and anything else and we have to make the effort. It was not easy for those who came before us and it is not easy for us. It will not be easy, but at the same time the rewards they received and the rewards inshallah you and I will also receive the mosquito knifes is essential because there are things in the heart, which if there are not cleansed will lead us to

00:37:25--> 00:37:43

commit Haram. jealousy and envy lead to slander and backbiting. jealousy or or hazard is like holding a life goal or holding a burning coal in your hand. It burns you but it does nothing to the one about whom you are jealous. He does not even know you're jealous.

00:37:44--> 00:38:03

How stupid to continue to hold a live code in the hand and choose to be burned by it. Similarly, shabbath sexual passion leads to Xena adultery hatred leads to refuse to listen to the person who you dislike just because you dislike him.

00:38:04--> 00:38:32

For how many hours is true? Yeah, you won't listen to someone because I don't like his face. Now what is his face God doing in TV saying something good listen to him. But no. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this quality specifically about the about the poofer at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu. He said Allah swatara said you don't listen to him only because you dislike him, not because you disagree with what he's saying. But what is what was the result of not listening to the Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:38:35--> 00:39:07

the Hellfire Where did bamboo gel go? The Hellfire? Where did Abdullah have go? The Hellfire? Why did they not listen to Nabi sallallahu Sallam? I just don't like you. So I will discard everything you say? How stupid is that? How stupid is that. But that is what hatred, hatred does to us. Hatred leads to stress and burns you up from inside, while the one you hate sleeps peacefully in his bed, not even aware that he is hated. It doesn't even care whether you hate him or not.

00:39:08--> 00:39:14

Anger. Another one. Anger leads us to say things and use language

00:39:15--> 00:39:29

which is haram. And then it puts us in a position where we become bigger sinners on the one we are angry with. It's anger in anger we say things and later on we have to bear humiliation because there is a price to pay.

00:39:31--> 00:40:00

or all of these negative emotions are things that must be removed from the heart just get enough just to work on each one of them individually one by one by one. Those who come to our therapy class does what we asked them to do make a list and work on it one by one and mark your progress. How are you doing with your with respect to your anger? How are you good Who do you hate? Why do you hate that person? Remove it Who are you jealous, jealous up? Why are you jealous of them and so on and so on. And that's what we do in our time.

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

We are class.

00:40:01--> 00:40:13

Greed is another big one. Greed leads to lack of sugar. People who are greedy, the Azov of Allah begins right there. Because they are greedy. They are ungrateful for what they have.

00:40:14--> 00:40:21

They have a nice house, but they are looking at somebody else's house which is bigger. And if you ask them, How are you gokarna Savatage.

00:40:25--> 00:40:31

to Ohio soccer give him makaha Alakazam, NASA, NASA, NASA

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

while I was in Chicago,

00:40:40--> 00:40:53

last season, what I uncovered in the military is my brothers and sisters really understand contentment of the heart is the biggest Name of Allah subhanaw taala tank Allah subhanaw taala Alhamdulillah

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

How is the heat Alhamdulillah

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

Alhamdulillah

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

How come the AC is not working too? Well Alhamdulillah the heat of Jannah is bigger than this. Here we are sitting and even though the AC is not working, maybe we are sweating a little bit but what are we listening to the Kalam of Allah to the vicar of Allah to the to the understanding of Islam? What more do we want? We can be sitting in a nice 3d Cinema theater very nice and cool. And looking at haram Which one do you want?

00:41:26--> 00:41:31

Seriously, think about that. All Hamza let nothing escape your tongue.

00:41:32--> 00:41:35

anyone asks you for anything Alhamdulillah?

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

May Allah subhanaw taala give my father Jana he was a doctor.

00:41:41--> 00:41:51

In his last days, he was in hospital for a while. And the duty doctor will come and say Dr. Berg, how are you feeling my brothers? Alhamdulillah so the doctor not Yes. But then while here

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

jokingly used to ask him if you are fine, then you know why are you in hospital?

00:41:58--> 00:42:02

They will tell him symptoms that you know Alhamdulillah I'm very happy ramlila

00:42:04--> 00:42:08

inculcate this in your children, inculcate this in your children.

00:42:10--> 00:42:22

Greed also leads to is rough, because a greedy person it is not enough to spend it is he must spend so others he thinks will envy him. But of course the ones who have sense they say what a fool.

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

You just blew up all this money for what?

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

Who remembers who cares?

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

He doesn't understand that. He thinks Oh, I am looking good before all these people. So it's rough we spent money.

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

on other things. Greed also leads to vocal.

00:42:39--> 00:42:49

It leads to stinginess, the person will not spend in the path of Allah because he thinks he will lose. And that is Allah Sallam said when you fear poverty give sadaqa

00:42:51--> 00:42:58

I mean, I think there are two different directions or somehow the thinking of Islam. We are so far away from this one Allah.

00:42:59--> 00:43:00

Allah Azza wa sallam said,

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

when you fear poverty gives us aka

00:43:05--> 00:43:07

let me translate it into language which you understand.

00:43:08--> 00:43:24

What do you say to the case and what do you say to the farmer? If you feel anger plant the seed? Yes. Does that make sense to you? If you feel anger plant the seed put the grain which you can eat into the ground take the grain Don't eat it throw it in the mud. Why

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

even pronounce the mud with a colossal allergy

00:43:32--> 00:43:52

take the grain which you can eat that's it can eat it or not. He can eat it. But what is what it is, I don't know Don't eat it. Where the hunger a little bit, put it into the ground. Why? Because now you will eat for the whole year, not one day or two days. When the crop comes, you eat for the whole year you also feed your whole family's not just you eating one roti, everybody will eat.

00:43:53--> 00:44:02

But you have to understand the principles of agriculture to understand what that language means. And we have to understand the issue of tobacco lalala you understand the column of Donepezil SLM

00:44:03--> 00:44:09

but when we have no connection with Allah subhanaw taala? How will you understand what was what was said, when you fear poverty gives other

00:44:11--> 00:44:14

brothers and sisters, I want to end with the last of the

00:44:15--> 00:44:44

evils of the skeleton evils that we have to guard against in terms of dusky and that is an evil that especially attacks the religious, the ones who have newly come into Islam, the ones who suddenly woke up to the fact that I'm a Muslim, and Alhamdulillah they made some effort. They did some learning they learned they learned some Koran. They went to this course and that course they went to this mother's house that Jamia and they got qualified and some of them got qualified. Some of them just collected some stuff from wherever.

00:44:45--> 00:44:48

And what is the evil that that attracts them?

00:44:49--> 00:44:52

What is it cable, cable,

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

pride, arrogance.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

So now suddenly you look at your old friend and he says he is a man of the house.

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

via the holiday hotel why he goes to the disco excuse me last night where were you in the same disco jiving away till the morning, just not today, this morning you got some

00:45:12--> 00:45:17

you know, understanding of life and now you make him the man of Ghana. So Alhaji

00:45:19--> 00:45:41

looking down on others, pointing fingers at others, saying that so and so is this and that feeling that I am superior to somebody kibber Haram. Ursula Sallam said, kibber Allah subhanaw taala has said in that is a quote see, kibber is the cloak of Allah. If anyone tries to take from it Allah subhanaw taala will destroy him.

00:45:45--> 00:45:55

Only Allah knows that there are jets of the people with him. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam once was speaking to the Sahaba is Andrea language mine. And he said to them,

00:45:56--> 00:45:59

that a man will come one day to Medina from Yemen

00:46:01--> 00:46:06

and his name is always and he is from the tribe of Quran.

00:46:07--> 00:46:08

So his name is always Allah Carney

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

Rasul Allah Sallam said when you find this man, if you find this man

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

asked him to make dua for your forgiveness.

00:46:20--> 00:46:48

Who is saying this to he's saying this to his Sahaba who was with him at the time was Abu Bakr and Omar and others rizwana Allahu Allah much vain. The accountability of the Saba Babylon bi with Abu Bakr Siddiq is with him at the time and what is the professionalism say, if you meet this man called always Frank Kern in Yemen, asked him to make dua for your forgiveness.

00:46:50--> 00:46:51

sudarsan passed away.

00:46:52--> 00:47:11

This time a worker Cynthia Golan also passed away. The reign of Omar Abdel Fattah Golan was I will momineen Omar Al Khattab remember the Saudis used to always keep a lookout. And one day a caravan came from Yemen. And a man came to into the masjid to pray and Mr. Malhotra noticed him and he knew he realized there was something

00:47:12--> 00:47:21

different about this man. So he went to him. I said, Are you from Yemen? He said yes. He said, Are you from Quran? He said, Yes. He said, Is your name always the answer? Why are you asking me all these questions?

00:47:23--> 00:47:30

He said, You first answer my question is your name always says yes. He said, Is it true that you had leuco derma.

00:47:31--> 00:48:07

The skin problem called white skin and you made DHA and Allah subhanaw taala cured you except for a small patch the size of our coin on your body? Is this true? And this was told to them by enemy salatu salam, as the identification for always alarming. So Omar says, Is this true? The man says yes, but why are you asking me all these questions? You have so many Omar Khattab says, just to ensure that you are the person that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam told us about he said, Now I have a request for you. He said What is your request? He said my request is please make dua for Allah to forgive v.

00:48:09--> 00:48:33

katavi, saying the voice of cudney make dua to Allah that Allah should fully be always welcome. He said yeah, mille mumineen You are my superior in the dunya and you are my superior and the dean. You are a savvy also lasala You are the Amir or the momineen I am mama to you. I am your subject. You are the Amir and you are the sabbioni Salah, salah and also among the Sahaba you are Alfaro. This is your position you want me to make dua for you

00:48:35--> 00:48:55

for your forgiveness. Omar Al Khattab said, Yes, I want you I am requesting you. I'm not giving you a command as the Amir, I am requesting you make dua for me that Allah must forgive me. And I'm saying this to you because Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam instructed us to ask you to make dua for us.

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

This does not mean that the position of oil Carney was a Tabby is higher than the position of Qatar. No, it just shows that Allah loves some people and Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts the doors of such people don't look down on anyone because you don't know who they are.

00:49:16--> 00:49:34

You do not know who they are. Omar Al Khattab new oil Kearney because masala Sam described it otherwise how would you have known Who would have known who is always and why and so on and so forth. And that is the whole story and we don't have time to go into that now. But later on when shall as and when time permits, we'll talk about that. But remember this

00:49:35--> 00:50:00

never never never looked on anybody. Always thank Allah if you came to Islam, Islam entered your heart, put your head in such then stay there and thank Allah subhanaw taala inshallah 100 Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala one Mahatma Islam, make dua, fathers never look down on anybody. Never point a finger at anybody. never speak with with disdain about anybody. If you really care for that person, go and talk to that person directly.

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Tell him my brother, my sister. Don't do what you are doing. Come to Islam. Correct your life straighten your life but don't speak behind their backs don't fall into Riba don't fall into caver don't do slandering of people. Don't do that because otherwise our day will come when you will regret it like you'll never regret anything in this life. mela swatara protect us from that. inshallah. Next up, we look at two other things, which is you Alamo will get up while hikma and then we'll complete this four step process of learning and teaching of Islam. We talked today about the tilava of the Quran and the effect that must have on our hearts. And we talked about what to do to

00:50:39--> 00:51:20

the heart so that this effect will happen unless you clean and clear the heart of all garbage. The Knower of Allah subhanho wa Taala will not stay in it. It's like planting the best seed but before you plant the best seed you have to prepare the soil. If you take the best seat in the world and put it on a rock it does not germinate even if it germinates it will die You have to clean the soil. Remove the rocks and stones and and and thorns and make the soil pliable and and and suitable for planting of the seed and that is what mosquito knifes is to clean and clean and make the heart capable of taking the word of Allah subhanaw taala and then we plant the seed which is your early

00:51:20--> 00:51:32

moon will kita and the practice of that which is hikma inshallah, next Juma was Allah Allah Allah and Abdul Karim. Allah Allah He was happy as may be Rama Tikka Amara hamina al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
