Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
In Alhamdulillah, WA salatu wa salam O Allah Jalla wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We continue with our series of lectures on the ayat of Surah Surah.
I was, I'm in the process of completing all the ayat of Surah 10. inshallah, I think at the end of this lecture series, we will also have a short
book on the entire Tafseer of the soul of the surah as a result of these robots inshallah, that will be available to you on the net. The while I was reflecting on the zoo, I thought to myself that if we were to give this surah a name, what name would it be,
and then thought that came into my mind is that Surat can be called surah, to Rama,
because it is a surah, about the formation of the oma Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. It's a surah that gives us directions about what works and what doesn't work, what builds and what destroys what one must do and what one must avoid in explicit detail. And that's why it's a very, very important surah to remember. And if Allah subhanaw taala gives us a trophy, to memorize and to recite and read over and over again, because it is the instructions in the surah. That if we follow insha, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will bless us with the Brotherhood of faith and all the Baraka that goes with it. And if we break those instructions, then we will, we will have and we already have, what we have, which
is the oma only in name.
So let us become aware of the attitude of the people of Ghana and inculcate that attitude in ourselves. so that we may be included in that list. It is necessary for that to reflect and to face some painful facts and make some changes in lifestyle and friendships. A lot was done. May Allah subhanaw taala help us?
Allah subhanho wa Taala said about the people of Jana.
Our will our humanness a tautology. Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim, wasabi Luna amin al muhajir in our lanzado he will live in
Allah one Homeworld one Delhomme Jana Rita
Li Na VI,
legal for those who lost the
last one that I said and the first to embrace Islam, the first to enter Islam of the Mojave road and the answer and also those who followed them exactly in faith will a son the problem of translation once again, Allah did not say exactly Allah subhanaw taala said about whom the Son follow them in excellence.
By by definition, that is exactly but that's not the DDD, translation of Asia is that is not exact.
So meaning that we must make the effort not just to follow the synonymous or SLM, but to do that, at the level that the Saba used to do with one language by Allah, Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala is well pleased with them, as they are pleased with him. As I mentioned before, in the meaning of this ayah that when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this ayah Allah subhanaw taala need not have left the door open for people who came after the Sahaba
Allah subhanaw taala simply could have set aside a lava Luna mineral mohajir in avanzar, Tierra de la noir one, the ayah would have been complete in itself. But Allah subhanaw taala did not do that it is the Rama of jell O Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala that he left the door open for anyone until the day of judgment, who follows the Sahaba
in actions and then insha, Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with them and they will be pleased with Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to include all of us among those who will follow the Sahaba
excellence until our last breath, we ask Allah to make this easy for us. And we ask Allah to accept this from us in sha Allah. And Allah said he has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell there in forever. And that is supreme success. Supreme success is not the garden you have in this world. Supreme success is not a farm in vikarabad supreme success is a farm in general for those who
think about that.
One of my good friends told me
good friends and relatives he told me that up to one I was Dejagah to make fun.
So he said, I've reached that stage in my life, where I should now buy a farm in May I told him it better than that you buy the farm and give it to me.
Much better than that. Anyway, the point i'm saying is that this is not a criterion of success. The criterion of success is the farm in general for those of Allah inshallah that's why I always say, All Muslims should be in with business, real estate business and all these old students, all Muslims should be in the real estate business as the only business which is jazz and halaal for the Muslims, the real estate business, what real estate business is that?
engine building palaces in general? Yeah.
Building palaces in Ghana,
building palaces engine How do you build a palace engine, very simple. rasulillah salam said, if someone abuses you, if someone abuses you, if you keep quiet, Allah will give you a palace engine.
Hassan said if someone takes away your right it is your right. It's not that something is, you know, you is not a grace. I know. You're right. Someone takes away your rights. And you do not retaliate. Allah will give you a Palestinian
how many people are filing suits after suits after suits on their own brothers and sisters and so on for some few square feet of land, your father's house or somebody's property law level and you want that three feet of land in this area, or you want a policy agenda which one decide.
And that's why I always say Don't come here to listen to the homeless. Come here to change your life come here to do something about it. So when you go back from here, go call your lawyer go call your advocate and say I withdraw the case against my brother my sister whoever give that thing to them call us End of story. I don't want this land I don't want that property. I don't want anything and believe me the people putting those cases are not people living on the street. Those people already have houses to live in. Those people already have property which is
a pit bull.
Please do that turning away.
As a result of me all my advocate friends lose business. But Angela, all good. God fearing people, they don't mind losing business like this. They don't even like to do business like this. I know. I know. I know friends of mine who are advocates who do this under duress. When somebody says filed lawsuit against my brother. I know friends of mine who sit and argue with that person and say don't do this. Don't do this. I will not do this for you. How can you file a lawsuit against your brother?
Today I don't think there will be disappointed at all. If people come to them and say I have decided I will withdraw the suit against my brother because I want a palace in Ghana. this dunya this piece of land is gone. I don't want Alhamdulillah inshallah.
We will do it. In July.
My dear brothers and sisters,
I began this whole series of lectures with my quote, on attitude. And what is that, quote, attitude drives behavior and behavior drives results. I began with that quote, simply because attitude is at the root of all good and all evil. It was the attitude of a bliss which drove his action of rebelling against Allah subhanho wa Taala, which produced the result of being in Ghana forever.
eternal damnation. And it was the attitude of Adam alayhis salam and how Allah salam, our mother and father, which drove their behavior of seeking forgiveness for the mistake which they made
which gave them the guarantee of general widows will Allah
so let us check our own attitude towards the orders of Allah and towards the Sunnah of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and let us see if this attitude is one that is likely to get us Jenna or the other place. Let us ask Am I serving Allah? Or am I serving my enough's? Let us ensure that we don't allow our so called knowledge to become a trap for us. Knowledge without practice, is a horse without a rider.
No matter how fast that horse it cannot win the race if there is no jockey on its back.
So stop collecting horses and learn to write.
That's the only way to win the race is to learn how to write. So stop collecting horses and learn to write
practice what you know. Let us create metrics to measure how well we are submitting our will to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala measure the number of sooner you follow count what you don't measure you don't know Michael Harry the guy who invented from from Motorola invented Six Sigma quality, his famous quote he said you want to see what people value see what they measure.
Very famous quote he said if you want to see what people value, see what they measure.
So measure the number of sooner that you and I follow and measure also the number of sooner that you break measure because one day we will be measured.
Allah subhanho data set in Serato data now we are on the iOS six seven and eight.

Allah subhanaw taala said Oh, you will believe evil, rebellious birds and evil,
evil person comes to you with some news.
If a person like that comes to you with some news, verify it. Don't believe it verified. Less do harm people in ignorance. And afterwards, you become regretful for what you have done.
And know that among you is the messenger of Allah. Allah mo fi comb Rasul Allah.
If he were to obey you, if he were to follow you, if he were to listen to you and accept your judgments in much of the matter, you would surely be in trouble.
But Allah subhanaw taala has endeared A man
has endeared the faith to you and has beautified the faith in your hearts, and has made this belief and wickedness and disobedience.
co for a while for sakala
He has made these things hateful to you. These who people who love the faith and wait disobedience, they are the rightly guided ones. And this guidance is a grace from Allah subhanho wa Taala and his favor and Allah is all knowing, all wise.
This these eyes were revealed. In the eyes, Baba knows all of these ayat.
These ions were revealed. When Rasul Allah is Allah Salam sent a man by the name of alwaleed bin Akbar may not be married
to collect the Zakat from a tribe called bundle binomo stehlik.
Now, there was some old enmity between alvalade
and been almost Allah.
So when alwaleed was going towards the habitation of the tribe,
he suddenly for some reason, he started feeling shaitan whispered into his ears, and he started feeling that maybe I will be attacked, maybe they will kill me. So he didn't even reach their place. He turned around and came back.
Not Not only did he not do not only did he turn around and come back, he came back and said Ravi Salazar lamesa jasola. They didn't they refuse to pay soccer, and they were going to kill me. And I escaped.
That is a total lie.
He came and said, this is rubbish. And also Rasul Allah got very angry, and he was on the point of sending a army to fight back because they had refused to pay zakat.
And at this point, meanwhile, what happened was that the people of animals that they knew their scouts told them that Jones was coming and suddenly this man was nowhere to be seen.
So they said, Well, this messenger of Allah salam, maybe he got angry with us or maybe Rosa Salazar was angry with us, so he called him back midway or something. So let us go and meet them a sallallahu sallam. So they took their Zakat and they came to meet us masala
and that is when Allah subhanaw taala revealed is I do not believe somebody just because they come and tell you something. Don't believe us? They don't believe or wrongdoer don't believe someone just because they come and make a complaint, go and verify otherwise, you may say something or do something about which you will have to regret later on. Imagine if the army had gone if there was a war, I mean, these people were innocent, right? And
saved them from that situation. And Allah revealed this is this is the ababu the Shannon was all of this particular is also one of the many eyes which are proof that also lies Allah Salam was not available right. Now, Viva la sala Salah knew what Allah had informed him about the live he was not animal, right? He did not know everything about the right because if he knew about the right, this whole idea would not be necessary to be revealed because he would know what the reality is. But he did not know what the reality is when when alvalade came and told him this lie in the military.
And he was going to take some action, Allah subhanaw taala saved that situation. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah now question that we have to ask ourselves is this? How many times has it happened in our lives? That someone comes to us and tells us a story about somebody else? And immediately we believe that person and we form a negative opinion about that person?
How many times?
How many times does it happen that someone tells a story about somebody? And you say no, no, no, I don't believe that person can never say that about me.
Which one happens more often?
It's a human tendency, may Allah protect us the human tendency to believe the negative far quicker, and far more easily than the positive?
Negative ability like a shot, but not the positive. All the we should say I mean, so so my friend. And if somebody says, For example,
Warren was saying this about you, I should say, No, no, no, sorry. I cannot believe that Warren can never say this about me.
Right? And if it is important enough that I go meet whoever said Kawasaki will do says about me our sons who told me know immediately that
What did I do wrong? How did I wrong? Why did he say so? And so now you build his whole negativity about the person in your mind on the basis of absolute nothing.
As I said, this is the surah of the oma
what is in the context of the Muslims? What is in the context of keeping the hearts together put this in the context of family relations? What is in the context of the relations of the Muslims one with the other? What does this attitude have the willingness to believe negative things about each other? What do you think it does to our relationship to one another?
And that's why Allah subhanaw taala warned Allah subhanaw taala sent the eye and said, Be careful listen.
And then Allah subhanaw taala made this amazing statement why Allah mo? fi comb Rasul Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala zingo Saba know that among you is the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now think about his Why does Allah need to tell the Salat?
What is the need? Did they not know who masala Salah was?
The idea came because they knew Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
the ayah came to reinforce the importance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala saying, don't just think that just because you are related to him just because he's your friend, just because he's your cousin or your uncle or something, that he is just like you and you can treat him just like anybody else. No, he is the Messenger of Allah. He has a special status, he has a special position. He has special authority. He is a human being like you, he is not worthy of worship. He is not valuable life, but he is not like you in any other way than being human.
And this is the vague confusion that people have in some cases, we will go to one extreme where they start treating rasulillah salam as a V was super human, as if now the villa he was a part of Allah subhanho wa Taala They say he is not human, he is no and is Rob says he is human. He is not no Rob Would you believe you are his up.
And on the other hand, you have the other people who come over because they speak about Nabi sallallahu, Alayhi Salam without the respect and honor which is due to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So Allah subhanaw taala saying very clearly know he is drawing attention to the zaba
It's like in our language also, usually he gets a vodka monoi
Somalia, Nicaragua. keshava. Manuel,
you know you're talking to, of course I know you don't know who is he?
Allah subhanaw taala is drawing the attention of the people to say that don't just treat Nabi sallallahu Sallam as if it's just one of you
know, he is the Messenger of Allah. And then Allah subhanaw taala says a very funny thing. Allah Allah says, and it's a good thing he does not listen to you.
He says it's a good thing. It's a good thing. It does not obey you. It's a good thing. It does not listen to you. It's a good thing rules against your wills and wishes and desires. It's a good thing that he establishes the law even where you don't like what he is doing. And Allah said, this is good for you. Because if he listened to you, you would be in trouble.
If he listened to you, you would be in trouble.
See the principles of being an oma which are being taught.
The principle which is being taught is that if there is any question between what I want and what Nabi sallallahu Sallam said, then which must have presidents the word of Mohamed Salah yes or no,
whether or not I like it, whether or not I agree with it, whether or not I understand it, irrespective of that. If Rasool Allah Salam said this is good, then it is good to
see the behavior of the people who learned this directly from the Nabi Salah Salem.
Omar Catalano was stepped in circle further when he was leading salah and the man stabbed him and ripped his abdomen open.
And they tied it up. And they said that when he if he tried to do some water, the water would flow. It was a mortal wound. He was dying. He was lying in his house. And one of the young anzar came to meet him. He came to me the other woman. He came to inquire after him. And as the young man was going away seven hours and calling back.
The man was called back.
Delano said to him, raise your garment she said raise your izhar your lower garment your trousers, he said raise it above your ankles. He said that is better for your taqwa and it is better for your garment.
Now think about this here is a man who is ameerul momineen he is among the closest of the Sahaba to risala He is an alum of the Zuma
he is a cause he is a judge he is a Mufti
and he is dying. At that time when you are dying. What do you expect somebody to say? What do you expect somebody to mention something which is extremely important. You don't expect someone to mention something which is small and trivial and really not worth the trouble. No, I mean you don't do that. That's not your dying state. But if you don't do that last statement on Earth's kind of thing never.
So why does he talk about the length of the trouser?
Maybe he understood something about that. How easy is that? We don't understand yet because we seem to think it doesn't matter. Our trousers not only below the ankle, it is below the hill.
We work on that trouser. I don't know how is it that you don't have a sense of filth and dirtiness yourself Can I hear you are walking on that trouser you're on the street in the road it's under your truck just look at the the way the the the bottom of the trousers frayed and it is discolored you go into the toilet with that same thing and you come and put a salon on the masala with that same thing i
do i do do I need to say all this
and the other part of the story, the trouser is so down below because from the top it is so down further up la hotel villa.
The guy standing next to he makes he makes
a man suit and you have to go and make
your Salah is invalid your hour has been has become visible. Your Salah is gone.
Your Juma is over.
Please treat yourself with dignity. Treat the machines with dignity treat yourself with dignity what is the dignity in wearing clothes like this which reveal that which should be hidden.
The Sahaba understood the importance of the tsunami de la sala and that is what else
As Ronald L is saying that it's a good thing my enemy does not obey you. It's a good thing my enemy does not listen to you. Because if he listened to you, you are the people who will be in trouble. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, But Allah subhanho wa Taala while Akina la Baba la como la como Lima, was a Yahoo fi Hulu
but Allah subhanho wa Taala has made Eamon beloved to you, and has mosaic he Alanna walco Allah subhanho wa Taala has decorated and glorified this man in your cult.
What is the declaration of
the Mahabharata of Allah subhanho wa Taala eemaan Allah Allah Subhana Allah
and Allah subhanaw taala said Allah subhanaw taala has made hateful to you. I will go for one full soak wallacea
Allah has made hateful to you. Denial of Allah subhanho wa Taala orders.
Allah has made hateful to you rebellious ness of all kinds. And Allah subhanaw taala has made hateful to you disobedience of Allah of all kinds. It covers every single thing you can imagine.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala then said
oola ecohome, Rashida, those are the people who are rightly guided which people, people in whose hearts A man has flowered people whose hearts are illuminated with the knower of obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala people whose lives are illuminated with the knower of the Sunnah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
People who hate to disobey Allah, people who hate to disobey the Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the criteria of the rightly guided people has been clearly specified una vaca humara shadow,
again if you went to the Arabic grammar of this, there is re emphasis after re emphasis. These are the people
who are the rightly guided people. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, follow Lamine Allah He will never man and this guidance did they get it because of their effort? Because they are so smart. No, this is the father love Allah. So let us make dua, that Allah subhanaw taala should make his father on us and make this father visible in our hearts and visible in our lives.
made one? No. Let's make this law. Allah give us your father. What is the father of Allah? The desire to obey Allah, the desire to follow the Sunnah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, this is the father of Allah, not my fatwa, I am reciting to you the ayat of Surah Surah go and read them.
And Allah is all knowing, all wise.
My brothers and sisters,
is a great reminder for those who open their eyes to Islam
and make major life changes
and become obedient to Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those who are able to do this. Because believe me at the end of the day, it's not what we know. But what we do, which will make a difference.
I want to remind you and myself, that if being obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala and hating all that is his disobedience is a sign of His grace and favour, then what is the tendency to disobey Him and obey our own desires? sign off?
What's the opposite of this? If this is the sign of rushed, the sign of guidance, then the opposite of this is a sign of what?
No brainer, right?
And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that specifically in Serato con Allah subhanaw taala said Ri tamani De La Hoya
de como la he de war keela
Sabu annak Sarah home Yes Mao Yaki loon in Houma, la Kalina, bal home our loser Villa, Allah subhanaw taala said, Have you all Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam seen the one who has taken as his God as his ILA as the one who worships his own desire
to obey your own desires
In opposition to the home of Allah subhanho wa Taala. A shark?
is what Allah is saying, the one who has taken his desire as ILA. What is the meaning of taking something else other than Allah as Allah is it should God is not sick. It should. So anytime there is a hokum of Allah subhanaw taala. Any time when the Musa Ali Salam Sunnah is before you and you deliberately chose to break it, you are committing shirk.
It's a very, very serious matter Please understand, is very clearly Allah subhanaw taala saying this and Allah then goes to say, and he says, Would you Mohammed Salah Salem, would you then be a vakeel for that person?
Will you will you intercede for that person? Allah subhanaw taala prohibited his nabee from making dua for the one who deliberately disobeyed Allah.
And then Allah subhanaw taala said,
or do you think that most of them hear or understand?
They are only like cattle?
And he said, No, they're even worse than cattle. even further a stray from the path because cattle are obedient to Allah.
It is the human beings who are disobedient to Allah. Everything else in the in the in the guide not always a lie.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the COVID to change our lives and to change our ways and to stop following our graphs and to stop following our desires and to stop following those stupid friends of ours who tell us that we should be popular with them. Let us instead try to be popular with the Mullah cavalla Let us be tried to be popular with the Sahaba
let us be popular with Allah subhanho wa Taala himself. Let us do those actions before it is too late. Because the time to go when it comes it cannot be stopped. Just yesterday I met a friend of mine who told me that another friend of ours is in the last terminal stages of cancer. The guy is in is under 50 May Allah subhanaw taala cure him Allah, his pain and suffering May Allah subhanho wa Taala help him there's also drive for another sister of ours who is undergoing liver operation in America tomorrow. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make that operation successful. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure her completely and to relieve her pain. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to
get her home safe and sound in sha Allah and to get into and to bless the bless her and her family was Allah Allah Allah Allah will get him while he was happy. He may be Rama TKR moromi
