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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala l mursaleen. O Allah Allah He was happy

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

about

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

my dear brothers and sisters hamdulillah we are to Gemma's away from Ramadan. inshallah, this Zuma, Zuma and then the following Juma inshallah will be in Ramadan.

00:00:29--> 00:01:16

What I intend to do inshallah is to complete this series of footbath on tarbiyah with Ischia in between this tomorrow and next tomorrow and then in Ramadan, we will have a series of whatever what was the first one will be on Ramadan itself and maybe the second one also and so on to try to take advantage of this blessed month. Also what we will do is have a series of footbath during the last 10 days when inshallah in the light Allah we will all be here in Africa. On the topic of reflections on the Quran, which we have just today I completed the first reminder the short version of it and many of you would have heard it, but we will do a series of lectures on each one of them inshallah,

00:01:16--> 00:01:56

because each one of them deserves to have more time and more attention with the intention that inshallah This should help us in improving the quality of our salah and in improving our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala The end result of all of this is for us to improve our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the bottom line that is my purpose I am sure that is also your purpose inshallah. So we are partners in this endeavor We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us and guide us and make it easy for us began to connect us always make this noisy Allah we make the effort but connection is your is your in your hands when you connect who you want to connect and make us

00:01:56--> 00:02:06

among those who you want to connect and therefore connect us it's not our effort, it is the Allah subhanaw taala him and his father on us inshallah which we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for

00:02:07--> 00:02:53

we are talking about tarbiyah begins with Toba and we talked about the necessity of reminding and remembering that any sin no matter how so called Small it might be is not small because every sin is disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala de la jolla Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is not small. And therefore any disobedience of the one who we say is Akbar has to be seen by ourselves as awkward, do not get involved in the few key arguments with regard to which are major sins and which are minor sins. Those are for some other reasons. We don't want to go into that 111 you don't deny that however, as far as our attitude is concerned, that is the key thing. The key thing is the

00:02:53--> 00:03:01

attitude, very important for us. Just to illustrate the point of attitude I recall way very,

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

very poignant and very important incident involving one of the great alumni of this oma Marana say he says Mr. Khan Rasul Allah.

00:03:15--> 00:03:29

in Medina, somebody went to him and he was talking about the importance of Suna. He was talking about the importance of sadhana and the importance of following the Sunnah. And this person said to him in in although he said I was Amato Sonata China.

00:03:31--> 00:03:56

You know, he referred to the sun as if it's something and it's only Asana. But if those of you who you know, those of you who know or don't know the implication of saying something like that, right, the English translation does not do justice to what it really means. So it was a miserable tsunami China and when I say the masala is responses, I think a absolute eye opener. He said Aki bazza he has magala Jacques Cousteau.

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

He said Aki basa here.

00:04:01--> 00:04:07

He said what you have said is correct, but your tone is COVID because you are

00:04:08--> 00:04:15

denigrating and deriding and demeaning and devaluing the word of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:04:16--> 00:04:52

So, even though what you are saying is correct is what whatever it was that he was talking about, this is one I I do not say it is not so now it is. However, the way you refer to the Sunnah. Mix that tone of voice into Cofer. So he said the you know, and that's why I think we should be very clear in our minds about what we say and how we say, as long as we remember one one basic rule to understand is as long as you keep your mouth shut, you can't get in trouble. Right? But the moment you open your mouth, there is a potential of getting into trouble there is a famous saying in English. You can keep your mouth shut and be thought to be a fool. Or you can open your mouth and

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

remove all doubt. So therefore it's very important to keep your mouth shut. I think that no one is harmed by keeping your mouth shut.

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

So especially with regard to the deen, there is no need to unnecessarily you know, make statements and so on and so forth, when we do not have the knowledge. So with regard to Allah subhanaw taala, our attitude with respect to sin must always be Allahu Akbar. Therefore any disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a matter of great concern. It's a matter of great consequence, and I will not do it. I'm not going to get involved. And the reason I said law is because this is the issue, which Oh, but you know, it's just faulty.

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

So now what happened the same principle which I explained, if you say, Oh, it's a small thing, what do you mean? You mean that to disobey Allah here is okay. So now what is our attitude with regard to Allah?

00:05:39--> 00:06:17

You know, I decide what I will do, what I will not do, I decide what is important, what is not important, which is, which is a position of Allah protect us from this. So, therefore, as far as sin is concerned, to continue with this, I want to remind myself when you that Toba is our greatest need, it is our need, it's not Allah subhanaw taala It is our need. As I always say there's no shortage of real estate in general Jana, you know, both of them have unlimited, unlimited amount of real estate anybody can get as much space as you want. In general, Johanna we make the choice. So therefore, the issue is Allah subhanho wa Taala Toba is our need. Dawa is our greatest resource.

00:06:17--> 00:06:26

taba is the greatest Namah from Allah subhanho wa Taala de la jolla. Do I even say that Toba is an even bigger niyama than a man.

00:06:28--> 00:06:34

We always say Iman is a great name. I'm saying taba is a bigger name, because even the one who does not have a man has Toba.

00:06:35--> 00:06:58

Someone who is not a Muslim. Now he was not a man. He has the one right he man You and I have Angela We ask Allah to counters among those who are women. But even the one who does not have women. He has the resource of Toba available to him or he can always he can always turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala can accept Allah subhanaw taala so taba is an even bigger resource and an even bigger

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

blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala even bigger than a man. So how much of gratitude should we have fatawa I think simply even before we make Toba we need to thank Allah subhanaw taala Allah what would we do if taba was not there? What would we do if it was a one way street and no u turns and no off ramps and so on. Right in this country. We also drive on the wrong side on the on the on the on the on the on the highway. You tried to do it doing it America, you know you can do it once because you won't be there for the next time around. But if you look at it, Alba is the off ramp taba is the U turn, the Oba is the door which is open Alhamdulillah as long as our eyes are open as long as we

00:07:41--> 00:08:09

are breathing as long as we have some we have our senses. And what if Allah had not given this What if Allah subhanaw taala said that the message has been sent to you the methodology has been clarified. The cam has been have been given, you have understood. Now, whatever you do, will remain period you do good It will remain you do bad It will remain Nothing can be wiped out Nothing can be changed. What would we do if that were the situation.

00:08:10--> 00:08:30

So we must thank Allah subhanaw taala The first thing to say Allah, it is your it is your mercy, it is your forgiveness, that you did not create the situation you carry the situation no matter what you do, as long as you turn around, everything is wiped clean. And I will even convert the bad deeds into the good deeds. We'll see the ads and the references as we go along today and next to my inshallah

00:08:32--> 00:09:17

so this is the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala So we thank Allah subhanaw taala for Toba and then we make our MLK Jr. holiday in his book El Mirage Alma de Rio Salah keen. He said that the state of repentance Toba is at the beginning, the middle and the end of all states of submission to the will of Allah, the slave who seeks the pleasure of Allah never abandoned stowa. He remains in the state of Toba until his death. Whatever his State of Belief, the slave makes Toba his constant companion thus, taba is at the beginning and at the end of his servitude to his creator, his need for power at the end, just as at the beginning, overrides and supersedes all other needs. Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

said Watteau Illallah Hey Jamie, can you help me no and Allah Allah come to freehold, Allah and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala all together, Jamia make Toba all you who believe so that you may succeed let us make Toba right now on the basis of this ayah and we say Allah all of us in sha Allah Jamyang we make Toba? Yes. inshallah we make Toba, we turn towards you, we ask you to forgive us, whatever we have done which is wrong. And we ask us to save us from your anger. We say this in total Fatiha, every Salah Mel do we allow him all are not among those who incurred your anger. Let us understand that as you understand what we are saying today.

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

For the remainder was on this variable to be a label of Darlene. So do do reflect on that, this ayah which I narrated above, from Serato note, and this is from Alma, Alma sorry to saligan of Georgia. I'm quoting from that he said the above is contained within within a Medina and surah which is similar to nor in which Allah subhanaw taala addresses the people of Eman who are the best of his creation, the surah is addressing whom it is addressing Rasulullah saw Salah it is addressing the Sahaba

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

when Allah said yeah you will be known when Allah Allah subhanaw taala said, you know, who are the

00:10:40--> 00:11:21

the Muslims, the Sahaba the first mocha of the Quran are the Sahaba is one of the hell a madman by reference, it also comes to us inshallah, but the people who Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to the people who listened to the revelation in the tone of the one who received that revelation, who are those people does have a reason to have a measurement. There is no one who heard who actually heard the recitation of the Quran be so dilhari Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I always say this, this is a great, great, great blessing. Today we listen to this Korean that Korean which Alhamdulillah beautiful recitation, but whose recitation can be better and more beautiful than the

00:11:21--> 00:12:02

one who received that column directly from Allah subhanaw taala who can recite which car in the world can claim that his recitation is equal to or better than the recitation of Mohammed Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu wa sallam and the people who had the benefit the people who had the pleasure the people who had the honor of listening to that recitation, in the Quran, when the ayat were revealed, after the ayat were revealed over and over and over the world, the Sahaba of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so email, Joshua says, reflect on the fact who is Allah subhanho wa Taala addressing and who is Allah subhana wa Taala commanding to make Toba? He is

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

commanding to make Toba the people who are already the best of

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

Allah subhanaw taala is not talking to a bunch of losers who, you know spent their whole life doing all kinds of rubbish, no, he's talking to the best of generations.

00:12:17--> 00:13:04

And that's why hydrocone Carney said the best generation is my generation. So my aluna homezone marunong he said after that the one who comes after another man who comes after and that is the reason why in this Hades mofa City in the Mojave Desert would have said that the Cairo Corona carnie the best generation is my generation refers obviously also chronologically to the to the to the generation of a sorceress alum, but it refers non chronologically, and it refers in terms of Eman and yaqeen. And spiritually to everyone who follows the sabarimala image by no matter when they are born. People who are born 10,000 years later, can be part of that generation, if they'll ensure that

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

their lives are on the path of the Sahaba.

00:13:07--> 00:13:49

Those of you who have not I did a lecture on this called Sahaba the golden standard. I think it's there on YouTube as well and inshallah if you have the time, at some point, we'll do it again. Listen to that lecture, I've given you all the oil from the Quran as well. The surah kotoba Ayah number 100. See what Allah subhanaw taala said in that ayah about that generation and about those who follow them in Asia. So this is an opportunity, Allah subhanho wa Taala left the door open for all of us to be counted in sha Allah in the first generation when we stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala What sense does it make to lose that opportunity? And that opportunity begins with Toba? It

00:13:49--> 00:14:18

begins with turning towards Allah subhanho wa Taala that is what even though Caravaggio says that Allah subhanaw taala addresses the people of a man who are the best of his creation, he calls upon them to make Toba and to turn in repentance to him, after they have already believed after they have gone through hardships, after they have gone through trials of faith, after they have endured patiently after they have migrated and after they have done yet.

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

After all of this, Allah subhanaw taala saying to Allah Allah, Allah saying to Illa, Allah Jami and all of you together, my brothers and sisters, I want to remind myself and ask you to remember that the people being asked to make Toba are not sinners in the way that we are sinners. They are the best of the best. They are the gold standard. They are the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, many of whom have already received the bizarre agenda in this life. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is ordering them to make since your Toba that is because Toba is an expression of abode yet it is an acknowledgement of

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

No matter how many good deeds we do, Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Allah who is not bound to accept them, and that those deeds can never be at a level which is appropriate for the glory and majesty of Allah to accept them. So when the slave makes the work after doing good, he is in effect saying, Oh my Rob, I did what I could, but I know that is not of a standard which is appropriate to your glory and majesty. So I ask you forgiveness and beg you to accept it.

00:15:34--> 00:16:12

This is the position of the believer not to do good and say I did this I did that what can you do? What can I do? First and foremost, we don't own anything we have. The life is not ours. Our wealth is not ours. Energy is not ours. Intelligence is not ours. Let a little bit of fluctuation happen in our sodium content in the blood, and we start we get into dementia. All our knowledge becomes zero. You can be happy score and you can be the biggest Mufti as of the world, you can be a doctor or an engineer rocket scientists, one little fluctuation in the potassium content in the blood.

00:16:15--> 00:16:29

And you get you go into dementia, you start talking nonsense, your knowledge goes zero, you do all kinds of stuff. And then what do they do? They take you to hospital, and then they give you intravenously, they give you the salts, potassium and sodium.

00:16:31--> 00:16:44

And that intravenous injection, if it is done slightly faster than what is required. You go into a state of permanent paralysis, complete paralysis,

00:16:46--> 00:16:59

irreversible, complete paralysis. I have seen it happening with one of our very, very dear elders, may Allah subhanaw taala. Forgive him and give him genital for those who Allah be ready, he's up. We saw this happening.

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

That is what we are.

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

This is what we are.

00:17:05--> 00:17:15

So where is the pride in doing in saying I did this? I did that no. And that is why everything begins with attitude, whether it is in dunya, whether it's in Africa, everything begins with attitude.

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

And the attitude of the Muslim is the attitude of submission. So who is a Muslim? A Muslim is the one who does his or her best to do the best that he can do. And then he makes a while

00:17:29--> 00:17:48

and then he's mixed over not because he has committed a sin, but because he knows that all or no matter what I did, this is not something which is appropriate to you. I am ashamed to bring this to you. My Salah, what is my Salah, I am ashamed to bring my soul out to you. Why my charity, my whatever? I mean, what is it? It's it's

00:17:49--> 00:17:57

garbage, as far as Allah subhanaw taala nor Your Majesty is concerned. But Allah I'm a poor person. I'm a poor man, I have only this What can I do? Please accept it.

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

There is a famous story of this,

00:18:02--> 00:18:40

of this man who was a was a poor man is a poor farmer. And, but he was one of those who, at some point, you know, his early life when he was a little child, his father used to work in the Palace of the king. So this little boy used to play with the prince. Right after that the father died, they went back to the village, whatnot, whatnot. Many, many years past the king died, this Prince became king. While this poor man he was, you know, in the, in the, in the in the village somewhere. So his wife told him one day he says you always tell us about how you are the playmates and you are the friend of the prince and now the prince is the king but we are starving. You have nothing to eat

00:18:40--> 00:19:12

nothing. And you know, why don't you go and ask the king something because King for something because we need it. Right? And you are supposed to be his friend? What kind of friend is this? That I'm I'm ashamed to go to the geezer. What do I have? What can I take for the king? How can I just go empty handed? He is my friend. But you know, I don't want to go to empty handed. So the wife said, Okay, we have some rice, you know, Lynn rice with the that's all we have is a handful of rice. But you can only take what you have, right? And the king really doesn't need anything. I mean, what does he need from you anyway, so just take what you have. So this man goes with a handful of rice in a

00:19:12--> 00:19:48

tiny little bag. And he goes and sends word and the king immediately recognizes him, he calls him he hugs him. And he makes him sit down and so on. And he said, I'm so happy Where were you all these years? And you know, I'm so happy to see you and so on and so forth. And then he says that's America. He said, What did you bring for me? Now this poor guy is sitting there with his little bag of rice is hides it behind his back. he's ashamed of what he brought. And now on top of that, the king is asking what do you bring for me, so very sheepishly, he pulled out his bag of small bag that he has, and he gives it he says to him, he says, You know, I only have this I have nothing else I'm

00:19:48--> 00:19:57

very sorry, I this is not appropriate for you. You know, please accept it. So the king opens his bag and his raw rice. The man starts eating it.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

He started eating it. He says how nice very nice thank you very much for this beautiful gift.

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

And then after he eats a bit of this rice, he calls his treasurer and he says bring a bag of gold.

00:20:13--> 00:20:34

So the treasurer brings a big bag of gold coins and it gives it to this man. And the man said to him, he said to the king, he said you know I only brought you these few grains of rice and you are giving me a big bag of bag of gold coins. The king says no that is that is appropriate because you brought me what you have. And I gave you what I have. He said you can only give me what you have. And I can only give you what i

00:20:40--> 00:20:40

Allah tala

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

let's

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

build a connection with Allah.

00:20:49--> 00:20:56

Allah This is all I have. This is all I have is only this is only this I can bring for you but you give me what you have. Right?

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

You give me what you have. Because we do everything is Carville. Everything is perfect. Everything is boundless.

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

I brought you only what I have. You give me what you have.

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

Just as we are much more with regard to quality just as we are much more with regard to giving something which is perfect. Allah subhanaw taala is much more with giving something which is imperfect.

00:21:25--> 00:21:31

This is one of the Messiah of Akita when we say much more we don't mean disrespect of Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:32--> 00:21:38

Allah cannot do something which is imperfect. Allah cannot give you garbage, garbage

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

so ask Allah

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

ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

a tragedy we have

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

we have the book of Allah we decided like a parrot

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

no feeling for it that thing

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

if somebody writes you a letter if somebody writes you an email

00:22:06--> 00:22:11

which is you know disrespectful love which is which is hurting you feel it

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

up oh my gosh, I gotta write if somebody curses you

00:22:20--> 00:22:25

and called you a donkey for example. And you know you're not a donkey. I mean, at least you don't look like donkeys. I mean, I've seen donkeys

00:22:27--> 00:22:38

you get angry. The guy who's obviously told you a truth he does not understand what is wrong. Mm. He never saw before because your donkey you get angry. So the word donkey has the power to change your heart.

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

And the caliber of Allah does nothing.

00:22:42--> 00:22:50

Right? Isn't it strange? We are mostly the Kalam of Allah subhanho wa Taala can do nothing for us. But God is

00:22:52--> 00:22:58

the curse word is enough to raise your blood pressure and change the color of your face and all kinds of things are

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

in Allah and Allah Raja What is this is which Islam is this?

00:23:03--> 00:23:09

Which Islam is this? We are like dead people. We are like morons and and, you know, robots

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

become alive people

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

become alive. die when the time comes not before the time.

00:23:18--> 00:23:33

Bahasa Bella Mata Guevara say both analog Bahasa Bella moto Ableton. He died before his time. You know what that refers to refers to people like me and you living dead, nothing moves. The art is a piece of rock.

00:23:37--> 00:23:53

Let us change our ways. The whole idea of Toba is for us to change always ask Allah subhanaw taala Don't worry about your fears. Don't worry about what is possible not possible everything is possible follows manatal ask Allah Allah I have only this I brought to you give me what you have

00:23:54--> 00:23:59

rewarded me in keeping with your majesty and grace, because how else will you reward me?

00:24:01--> 00:24:02

How else will you reward me?

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

Right

00:24:05--> 00:24:08

bodyshop nishank, a Buddha by

00:24:09--> 00:24:21

Jamar dunia Kabbalah shows that the king will give only keeping with what His Majesty and grace again What does not give you some small, trashy thing he has to his gift is a reflection of himself.

00:24:23--> 00:24:24

Nothing to do with you.

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

It has nothing to do with you. The gift of the king is a reflection of himself. What is the gift of Allah subhanho reflection a

00:24:34--> 00:24:50

reflection of His mercy, reflection of his forgiveness, reflection of His glory. Allah tala have a connection with Allah subhanaw taala ask Allah subhanaw taala as well as if you love him even if you don't love him, how can we not love Allah Subhana today?

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

How can we not love Allah subhanaw taala what level of treason is that? That we take something we every single thing we have we owe to Allah

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

I know that I still don't know Allah. Who do you want to love?

00:25:05--> 00:25:28

Our brothers and sisters let us wake up and let us stop living like this. And let us do that which Allah subhanaw taala has told us to do, because we love him, and we asked him for his mercy. Even though a majority lolly continues and says Allah made success conditional on perfecting the Toba, as the effect is often conditional on the cause, so no one can hope for success, except those who make Toba and Allah subhanaw taala in

00:25:30--> 00:25:57

Surah, he said mama lamb your Toba for hula EGA homos volley moon and those who do not make Toba Indeed, the volley moon they are the oppressive oppression oppressors they have oppressed themselves. Allah subhanaw taala divides his slaves into two categories only the repentant and the wrongdoers. There is no third category of people. Allah subhanaw taala two categories one who repents, and one who refuses to repent.

00:25:58--> 00:26:11

And Allah subhanaw taala calls those who do not make Toba volley moon transgressors, rebels and no one is more of a wrongdoer and a transgressor than a person who does not repent for his evil action.

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

What Amala

00:26:24--> 00:26:29

woman as a llama women do Kira big Robbie tomorrow Donna in nominal mucho de Minami.

00:26:31--> 00:26:37

Allah subhanaw taala said who is a bigger volume than somebody who in the eye of Allah comes before him, he turns away.

00:26:41--> 00:27:07

Who is a bigger volume who is a bigger oppressor than when the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala come before him instead of responding instead of coming towards Allah subhanaw taala he or she turns away Oh, this is this is misfortune of the greatest level. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith in Bukhari is reported to have said, Oh, people make Toba to Allah by Allah. I make Toba to him more than 70 times a day.

00:27:08--> 00:27:37

What is the Toba that somebody who is already masumi somebody who's already my foes, somebody who is free from sin, somebody who Allah subhanaw taala forgive Anyway, what is he making Toba about? And that also not once in a lifetime, not on round, not in Ramadan, not once in a week, 70 times a day. And the Sahaba rely on a madman somebody who's to count actually for him in each congregation. And many of them reported that he used to say make over 100 times in a day

00:27:40--> 00:28:17

and with a sorceress element, this is also what should be with us is not simply a matter of taking a to z and you know, saying as a philosophy, philosophy, philosophy, even the word is not pronounced properly. No, it is reflection when I'm saying our stuff will law or Allah forgive me, what am I asking is there for for and as I explained yesterday, last Juma is too far or Toba? Is there far is to apologize. Step four is to be contrite is the four is to ask forgiveness. And then the automatic result of asking forgiveness is to do something else to change those ways. Because it makes absolutely no sense that we ask forgiveness, and then we go back and do the same thing all over

00:28:17--> 00:29:00

again. So naturally is the father and Toba are related and when we say when we make is the FARC. When we ask Allah forgiveness, then it follows that we then do not do that wrong thing which we have been doing in the and this is the Hadith from Bukhari. rasulillah salam is also reported to have said, no one will be rescued on the Day of Judgment by his deeds, the Sahaba said even you all messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and he said even I, unless Allah subhanaw taala grants me His mercy and His grace, you ask Allah for his mercy and His grace, because this is very, very important for us not deeds alone, and therefore anyone who is proud of his deeds. I read so much for our I

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

pray so much I do this do this. This person is seriously misguided, seriously misguided, we must do all of those things and then make Toba

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

to Allah subhanho wa Taala when we

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

during the after doing those good deeds.

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

Okay, you've also said around the law, that far the highest overthrow the Fattah is Toba because throttle via the slave is talking about when he says very much to be Allah him. He is making Toba Allah not among the people who attracted your anger, meaning he is making Toba from all forms of disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

And that's right enough to be la Mr. Wha, wha Pauline, all are not also among those people who got misguided who did all kinds of things which they were not rightful things to do. The person is making Toba for all forms of misguidance. So why do we allow him well, Darlene is Toba that the person is making when we are say when we are reciting Surah 12

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

The Hub and resourceful 5g explains this whole concept in the most complete and eloquent manner. The last I think seven or eight days or nine days of further reminders are on the entire surah. I suggest you listen to that, if you are interested, whoever appreciate solfatara time says, Whoever appreciates Surah Fatiha and gives it its right place through knowledge. contemplation upon its facts, and by living its directives will realize that one cannot recite it with true recitation of a slave unless one makes sincere Toba. Let us remember that when we pray the Juma Salah today and make Toba as we recite and listen to the recitation of Surah Fatiha my brothers and sisters, let us

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

reflect when we are

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

when we read the Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:55--> 00:31:37

when we are reflecting on Surat Al Fatiha let us reflect that the slave begins with thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala and glorifying him and invoking him by his names of infinite mercy and acknowledging his ownership of the Day of Judgment. The slave reaffirms his faith in the heat of Islam, for only the one who's a true slave of Allah can ask Allah for a favor when the person says he aka nabooda we're gonna stay in Iraq and Afghanistan is a building a connection with Allah. Why are we saying think about this? Why are we saying he can out we're gonna say what is the need for saying you're gonna have to stay because you already said are hungry la hora bellami Rahmani Raheem,

00:31:37--> 00:32:13

Maliki Ahmed Deen, why do you say econavi gonna stay because this is my connection with you. It when we go to somebody tala la Hamza, we do not give the example of Allah but to illustrate when we go to somebody, if I if I go to a buy friend, I go to him and I say, and I'm going to ask him for a favor. I'm going to ask him for something. I build my connection with him. Maybe he forgot who I was, maybe forgot all the things I did for him. And I go to him and I say, I am your friend for the last 30 years. Do you remember me? Do you remember what I did for you? Do you remember how what associations we had? Remember we went to the same school? Remember, we used to be in the same class. This is

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

building a connection with Allah.

00:32:16--> 00:32:49

Allah I worship only you, I do not worship anybody else. He cannot stay in Yala. I asked help only from you. I never asked anybody else. Yala. Now give me is in a Serato osaki Allah guide me to the path of righteousness to the path of steadfastness. Why because you are mine. I am yours. Why? Because you are mine. I am yours. You are my Rob I am your abs. My responsibility is on you. You said that you are my Rob, I did not say that you are my Rob.

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

I am acknowledging that I am your abs.

00:32:54--> 00:32:57

You said I am your Rob and I said Yes you are right.

00:32:58--> 00:33:00

So now take care of me.

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

Not take care of me.

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

I do not worship anybody else. I do not ask for help from anybody else. So now I'm asking you give me

00:33:13--> 00:33:15

giving no doubt.

00:33:17--> 00:33:27

The doctor said these stones are Who cares? Who cares what the doctor said? My connection was the creator of the doctor, with the creator of the disease with the creator of the of the cure of that disease?

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

What does the doctor know?

00:33:32--> 00:33:41

What do I care what the doctor said? Let him say anything. You are the maker of the rule. You can change the rule only you can change the rule

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

for change it for me.

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

Change it for me. He cannot change it for me. Who else will you change it for if you don't change it for your life?

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

Why will you not change it for me? Is it kerkia Allah?

00:33:58--> 00:34:04

Allah is the only one who loves this kind of behavior. When you are standing alone before us It can go wrong.

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

Like a small child does this.

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

That's always the Ask only Allah because only Allah likes those who ask

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

everybody else we get tired of people who ask Erica barber ma ma

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

ask Allah.

00:34:33--> 00:35:00

brothers sisters, ask Allah subhanaw taala to build this style of ask Allah subhanaw taala to connect you with him. ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your advice even before you ask, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to teach you how to ask and to put the words in your mouth and to make you do it and to be pleased with that and ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant you in keeping with his majesty and grace so that his command is established so that his glory is established, so that we revel in the glory and majesty

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

Have Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla wa salatu salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa rahmatullah wa hamdulillah me
