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

hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala COVID mursaleen Hualalai. He was happy. Germaine. I'm about salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

My dear brothers and sisters, we are doing this series of lectures on

00:00:17--> 00:01:03

reflect on the Horan. So connecting with the Quran Allah subhanaw taala we began last Juma we continue this Juma and inshallah maybe for the next couple of Jamaat, I as I mentioned, you have taken sort of Fatiha as a marker as a point of us because that is the surah that is recited the most often we recite So, to Fatah, in every rocket of every Salah, whether it is for whether it is tsunami, there is nothing, and therefore, it is a surah that we are all familiar with. Those who enter Islam, the first surah that they learn is all of it, because that's how Salah starts. So Alhamdulillah it's a beautiful reminder for us to understand how to connect with the Quran. Those of

00:01:03--> 00:01:45

you who are not here last week, I would suggest you listen to last year's last week's lecture, all the lectures are on the website and they are the links would have been sent to you. If you're not on the group, please give your name, your email address to Azhar, who was here just now disappeared and he will come up. So then he will you will get these updates and all the lectures are recorded they all on our website plus when this series is done, then this entire text will also come to you and you are welcome to read it as well. So that's so that you keep a connection in your mind with whatever that you have been hearing till now.

00:01:47--> 00:02:34

So we come finally to the beginning of the surah. Last week we spoke about the need to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala the need to reflect on the Quran and inshallah We ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our eyes and our hearts to his column. The thing to understand about the Quran, which all of us know but all of us we need to remind ourselves is that the Quran is not a book of philosophy by this person or that person no matter how great and wise that person may have been. The Quran is not a book about ideology. It's not a book about theology. It is the actual speech of the Creator of the heavens and the earth. It is the actual speech of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Fatah somata valade

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

body awesome Allah to Allah.

00:02:38--> 00:03:27

Allah mean Rob Buddha chill Karim jelajah Lalo that is who that speech is from. It is the actual recorded speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala every single word of it every single letter of it is directly from the Kalam was directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Quran is not a created thing. And that is why one of the foundational principles of al Qaeda in Islam is that if anyone denies any part of the Quran, even if a person denies a single ayah of the Quran, that person has exited Islam, that person has left Islam, even if he denies one single Ayat of the Quran. Why? Because it is a form of Allah subhanaw taala why is it that the Quran is unchangeable? Because I always tell people

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

because of copyright, copyright laws, who can change a book, the author?

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

If you try to change somebody else's book, what happens to you, you are in violation of copyright. Right? And therefore, who has the copyright of the Quran? Allah subhanho wa Taala. So why can't you and I changed the Quran because we didn't write the opener.

00:03:50--> 00:04:01

Many times people ask this question, why is that? Why not? Same question applies also same answer applies also to those who have a claim that the Quran is now outdated because it is 1400 something years old.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

It can never be outdated for a very simple reason, which is the Allies not outdated.

00:04:09--> 00:04:30

Allah subhanaw taala not outdated. So his speech cannot be outdated, as simple as that. Right? Simple as that, what Allah subhanaw taala said, he said for all time, time is a factor that affects us because we live on this planet Earth, which is a is one of the planets which goes around the sun. And time is a factor of that

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

time, if you simply leave the

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

orbit of the sun, if you go into outer space, time stops even for you.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

There is no time in the question of time for Allah subhanaw taala the creation of the heavens and the earth with time is a is a factor of us. It's one of the four dimensions that we live in. We live in a in a four dimensional world length, breadth, height, and time the four dimensions that we live in anyone who's in a fifth dimension, none of these four, four apply to him. So

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

There's no question of this applying to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah Allah. And therefore if Allah subhanaw taala said something, he said it till the end of time.

00:05:09--> 00:05:32

End of Time seems to us like a long time. But in the scheme of things of Allah subhanho wa Taala End of Time is what? What else in the Quran about many incidents like this incident of a Savile calf, and like the incident of the person who was made to die, and then he was resurrected. What is the word Allah subhanaw taala. say? He said, Come love his tomb.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

How long did you stay?

00:05:35--> 00:05:47

And what did the person say? Love is scenario, man Obasanjo. He said, I was dead, whoo, maybe one day or maybe a part of a day. And he's talking about in the in Soraka. He's talking about a period of 300 years,

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

entire dynasties changed.

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

Entire dynasties changed.

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

The Byzantine Empire came into being Rome, which was one of the greatest persecutors of Christianity became Christian.

00:06:06--> 00:06:25

But the people who slept through those 300 years with the light Allah, when they were asked, How long did you sleep? What did you say, Yeoman over the hill? Maybe a day, maybe a part of a day? I mean, I don't know. How do I? How do I say how long I slept? Can you say how long you slept? Unless you look at a watch. Just think about diseases? I don't know. The key thing is that, you know,

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

the brain is meant to us, right?

00:06:31--> 00:06:38

So think about this, if you fall asleep, and you wake up, can you without looking at a watch say how long you were sleeping you had been sleeping for? No.

00:06:39--> 00:06:50

Was it 10 minutes? Was it one hour? Was it one we have no clue. You have to necessarily look at watch. Look at a clock, even to know how long you slept on in the ordinary scheme of things.

00:06:52--> 00:07:01

That's how dependent we are on these things. And who is Allah? Allah is a summit, the independent, the one who is not dependent on anything,

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

allow someone

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

to come to the first is of the Surah Fatiha, and what is the first I have sort of

00:07:10--> 00:07:52

this villa Romano here right is the first ayah of Sophia, whether it is to be recited aloud in Salah or whether it is to be decided silently is a matter of difference of opinion. Some people have said it is to be recited aloud others and all of these are go back to the Sahaba the others said that it is not necessary to recite aloud but nobody said it is not an eye of the Quran Nobody said it is not necessary to recite so please understand that if you are used to readings Oracle fathia without saying Bismillah R Rahman Rahim you have not completed residential savatya and your Salah is in serious trouble. So, always start the Salah with him. Whether you say it aloud you say it silently

00:07:52--> 00:08:04

inshallah both of them are perfectly correct. Do what we do whichever you have been taught to do, but say that's the first Ayat of Surah Fatiha which consists of seven is and this is the first of those is

00:08:06--> 00:08:46

my brothers and sisters. It is also the Sunnah, to start any action with this I was saying this will arrange Yes. When we start eating What do we say? Bismillah when we get into a car, what do you say? Bismillah when you when you wake up in the morning, what do you say Bismillah? Right. Every single action we have been taught is to be started with saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. I want you to reflect on what we are doing when we are saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim we're actually reciting one ayat of the Quran. We are beginning the action whatever we were doing, by reciting for an imagined the bark of that imagine the blessing of that naturally the Hadith were also nice Allah

00:08:46--> 00:09:31

Azza wa sallam said that Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards the believer with 10 Hashanah for every letter of the Quran that he recites, he did not say every word he said every letter and to further reiterate that, what it is, he said I do not say that Alif Lam. Meem is one letter. Alif is one letter. Lamb is one letter, meme is another letter, which means that when you say I mean, Allah subhanaw taala gives you how many Hassan 30 Hassan asks, What is the value of one Hashanah on the Day of Judgment. What is the value of one Hashanah on the day of judgment? No, the value of one has an on the Day of Judgment is it is the difference between Jana and Jana.

00:09:34--> 00:09:43

Please understand this the value of one good deed one has an eye on that day of judgment is that difference between Jana and Jana?

00:09:44--> 00:09:49

And if you simply recite caulifla me you got 30 of them.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

So when you saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, count the number of letters multiply by 10 that is the minimum that Allah subhanaw taala has given

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Insha Allah

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

Bismillah is also protection against sin

00:10:06--> 00:10:13

as your as your readings Oracle fathia as you are residing, when you come to Israel, just reflect on all of these things.

00:10:14--> 00:10:34

Bismillah is protection from sin? How is it protection from sin? Because it is inconceivable that a person can start a sinful action by saying Bismillah you've got used to saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim with everything that we do. So now, you are deciding to say something, you know, this juicy piece of gossip about this person?

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

What is the one word for juicy piece of gossip?

00:10:38--> 00:10:53

Everyone, right, it is haram. It is it is prohibited. It is very strongly prohibited to talk about people and especially to talk about people and say disparaging things to say critical things about them behind their back.

00:10:54--> 00:11:26

So you're about to do that. And you have been taught that everything must be it must start with this well as you say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim and then as you go to a river, no. How can you do that? Right? You decide to look at something which you should not be looking at you decide to hear something or listen to something that you should not be listening to you decide to eat or drink something that you know you should not be doing. But you have been doing it all this way. But now you understand I must begin everything with Bismillah so I'm saying Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim and then I pick up this thing to eat or drink. Do I not think is this halon? Is it Hara?

00:11:27--> 00:11:42

So Bismillah R Rahman Rahim is a guarantee that if we that if we make this habit, and we are like, give us the guidance to make this into a habit of ours, it's a guarantee of protection from said Bismillah R Rahman m protects us from sin.

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

My brothers and sisters, then think about the meaning of this ayah we are saying In the name of Allah.

00:11:51--> 00:12:07

So when we begin In the name of Allah, we think about our connection with Allah. I remind myself and you that it takes a long time to build a connection. But it takes one word, it takes one incident, to destroy that connection, yes or no?

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

And what is the value of a connection?

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

Think about the connections that we have with influential people in this world.

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

What is name dropping?

00:12:20--> 00:12:28

Name dropping is something which people do or it's bad manners, it is nonsense. But people maybe will do that they drop names about all the great people that they know.

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

I was having dinner with so and so and so and so came in. And that person said hello to me first before he said it to the other so and so.

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

Think about those connections.

00:12:43--> 00:13:16

Do not compare Allah subhanaw taala to some leader or some, you know, influential person in the world. But just for us to understand what is the value of a connection with an influential person in this life, even though that influential person never gave you a guarantee for anything. Even though that influential person, especially in our democratic societies, his own lifespan is limited IE how long he will be influential itself is a matter of great doubt. Yet, when we have a connection with that influential person, how do how what does it make you feel?

00:13:18--> 00:13:33

What does it make you feel if you had a connection with the Prime Minister of this country, and you could walk into his house anytime you want it? All the security guards everybody knows you can just walk into the house of the Prime Minister anytime you want it. What would you feel? How would you feel?

00:13:35--> 00:13:41

What do you feel that you can walk into the house of Allah anytime you want, and there is not even a security guard to check you.

00:13:42--> 00:13:53

Seriously, my brothers and sisters we have to reflect we have to think stop leading mechanical lives like robots. windup toys, you runs until the battery runs out.

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

Think

00:13:56--> 00:14:01

when you enter the masjid, stop for a second and say where am I entering?

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

Where am I entering?

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

and entering the house of Allah?

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

Get this guy fit into yourself.

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

And you say when if I'm entering the house of Allah, what does it mean?

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

What does it mean?

00:14:20--> 00:14:31

At the very least it means that you can ask whatever you want and Allah will give you because there is nobody who honors his guest more than Allah subhanho wa Taala honors his guest.

00:14:32--> 00:14:39

What do you call someone you invite into your house? Your guest and did Allah invite you and may or not or did we just walk in?

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

In the line writers or not Yes or no? What is the proof?

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

What is the proof?

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

He's got a virtual handshake.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

And then, hey, yeah, la sala de la Vela.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

namaz in cold In the name of Allah.

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

So when we entered the masjid, we didn't just walk in, we are not get crushes.

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

We are invited guests.

00:15:15--> 00:15:22

Think reflect, we are invited guests were into the house of Allah.

00:15:24--> 00:15:28

We are the guests and Allah subhanaw taala is the host

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

it is incumbent upon the hosts.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

It is further upon the host that if guests ask for something, the host has to give it this is our culture. This is the culture of Islam.

00:15:44--> 00:15:52

If a guest asked for something the host has to give it that is why we teach our children when you go to someplace don't ask for things because you can put somebody in an embarrassing position

00:15:54--> 00:15:59

today I'm gonna be a free from culture. So no embarrassing position the guest had to say go to hell

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

lalala hotel,

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

but in the days when we had some manners

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

when we used to get embarrassed about things, if someone forget about asking if someone prays something

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

you gave it away.

00:16:15--> 00:16:23

Yes or no? Is it and it was it there was there was no limit on what it was anything you pressed was given to you.

00:16:25--> 00:16:38

And that's why I said that's why I said we used to teach our children do not praise like that don't say you know openly praise and don't say oh my god such a nice is so beautiful. Don't Don't say like this is Angela, this is looks good on you.

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

Say something like that.

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

You will wish You're so nice that I have to do to

00:16:48--> 00:16:58

think about Islam, that you came into the house of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala invited you and you said love by Allah Humala bike, and you entered the house, all of us know that

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

you are the guest of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala is your host, whatever you ask, it is forced on him to give you.

00:17:09--> 00:17:14

So why are you sitting silently? Why don't you ask? Who's stopping you from asking?

00:17:18--> 00:17:26

Why don't we ask? Because we have no connection with Allah. We have no sense of being in the house of Allah. We just come out that

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

you have you have to pray. So you go to the budget, you go sit there, we listen to whatever is happening or rather, I should say we hear what is happening. I don't think we listen. It is different between listening and hearing, hearing is registering sound listening is understanding, reflecting

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

to register sound,

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

we register sound and then we go home. It is

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

despite all that is still gives you a blessing and I have no problem with that.

00:17:55--> 00:18:02

But I'm just saying that what are you and I losing deliberately, voluntarily giving up

00:18:04--> 00:18:11

the opportunity to connect with Allah the opportunity to ask Allah whatever you want, or a manga who has a better way?

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

What are you sitting silently for? Ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:17--> 00:18:24

ask in your heart, he knows what's in your heart. As with your tongue, he knows what's in your tongue what what you're saying ask in any language you want.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

any language you want.

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

Somebody asked me which language should I use? I said use Telugu because we are another British.

00:18:38--> 00:18:38

Jim Coleman,

00:18:42--> 00:18:53

my brothers sisters, therefore let us think about our connection with Allah subhanaw taala. Let us ask, what is my connection with Allah?

00:18:54--> 00:19:04

My brothers and sisters, nobody can say with certainty how strong and close that connection is. And we will know that only when the curtain is lifted,

00:19:06--> 00:19:16

and when we meet Allah. But when we begin with the name of Allah, we must reflect on this and ask ourselves what we are doing to build this connection.

00:19:18--> 00:19:25

What are we doing to build this connection? Remember, we do this with networking all through our lives.

00:19:26--> 00:19:39

We actually teach that network what do you what do you teach in networking, make that phone call, send that email? Send an email saying Happy birthday. A friend of mine sent me an email three months before I before my birthday every year.

00:19:41--> 00:19:44

Like keep telling my boy I'm not yet born. You know, I'm three months to go.

00:19:46--> 00:19:55

We build a connection by contact by communicating. So ask what is my connection with Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

my brothers and sisters Finally, very importantly,

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

Ask also, what am I doing to ensure that that connection with Allah subhanaw taala is never strange that it never breaks.

00:20:10--> 00:20:24

As I told you, takes a long time to build a connection takes one word, one action to destroy it. So make sure that that action that word never leaves our lips and that action never happens with our hands.

00:20:25--> 00:21:06

We begin with the name of Allah, who is a Rahmani Raheem Bismillah In the name of Allah. Amanda Rahim Rahmani Raheem, Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is Rahman and Rahim, I will talk about the specific meaning of these attributes of Allah of these qualities of Allah subhanaw taala later because they also come again in the third eye of the surah and inshallah we'll discuss them in detail there. But just think of one thing, what is the value of Allah subhanho wa Taala introducing himself with with these specific attributes out of all the attributes that he has,

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

instead of saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

If Allah subhana wa Taala had us some other attribute of his

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

Bismillah Allahu Allah ha ha

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

Bismillah al Aziz or Hakeem

00:21:27--> 00:21:35

named beginning the name of Allah who is Allah hadal ha ha. Begin In the name of Allah, Who is the most powerful, overpowering

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

victorious

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

words of power words of general?

00:21:42--> 00:21:57

If Allah subhanho wa Taala, has had introduced himself with those words, what do you what would you and I are what could you and I have done to make Allah subhanaw taala? change those words? Could we have done anything to make him change those words?

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

Now why change?

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

Because the introduction, decides the rest of the interaction.

00:22:08--> 00:22:17

Please think about this, the introduction decides the rest of the action. If a person introduces himself to you and says, I'm a doctor, then you will not tell him to fix your car.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

Because he introduced himself as a doctor.

00:22:22--> 00:22:28

And if a person introduced himself and says, I am a I'm a motor mechanic, then you will not tell him about the pain your heart

00:22:30--> 00:23:04

because he introduced himself as a motor mechanic to Allah. When Allah subhanaw taala introduced himself as urahara him, What is he saying? He is talking about that overpowering the magnificent the overarching quality of his relationship with his lips, which is a relationship of overpowering mercy, completely covering mercy. Everything else comes later but my relationship with my slaves is mercy. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. The conversation begins with mercy.

00:23:06--> 00:23:19

What is the value of that? I want you to think about this I want you to reflect on this. Because this defines our relationship with Allah. This defines the meaning of taqwa.

00:23:21--> 00:23:26

Among the lectures during the last 10 days of Ramadan, there is one lecture on fatwa or taqwa

00:23:28--> 00:23:36

and I will talk about in detail on on that day inshallah. But just take this point right now, which is to say that our aim is the basis of taqwa.

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

It is the foundation of our relationship with Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,

00:23:42--> 00:23:53

compassion, and mercy, boundless compassion and boundless mercy. Now, please understand, why is Allah subhanaw taala using two different words? Why compassion, why mercy.

00:23:54--> 00:24:12

Compassion is not merely mercy, but something that arises out of a true understanding of the difficulties and pain of the one suffering. For example, a person who has undergone heart surgery, a person has undergone open heart surgery.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

If he goes to meet a friend of his who's about to go into the operating theater,

00:24:19--> 00:24:30

he will have a level of understanding about what this friend is going to undergo, that somebody like me will not have because I've never had to undergo open heart surgery. Alhamdulillah

00:24:32--> 00:24:43

so I might have some sympathy for the person I might say, Well, you know, don't be afraid and so on, so on. But do I really know what he might likely to be in? that he might he might be likely to encounter No, I don't know. Never happened to me.

00:24:45--> 00:24:50

Allah subhanaw taala is beyond experience. Allah does not experience that. But Allah subhanaw taala is the creator of all experiences

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

and that's why Allah subhanaw taala said, lucky for me, but

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

he is very well aware.

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

Of every nuance of our experience of every aspect of our experience of every flavor of our experience.

00:25:10--> 00:25:15

And he is aware in a way that nobody on the face of the planet can be aware.

00:25:16--> 00:25:22

And therefore there is this special relationship between the one who's compassionate and the one who's suffering,

00:25:24--> 00:25:35

especially relationship and that is a relationship that we have with Allah subhanaw taala and that's the relationship by which Allah subhanaw taala introduced himself specifically and said, who is Allah urahara he

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

he is the Rahmani Raheem

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

defines our relationship with him

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

going forward.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

We come to the second part of the surah

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

which is

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

Alhamdulillah europei. lol I mean,

00:25:56--> 00:26:26

my brothers and sisters, I remind myself when you that all goodness starts with thankfulness, thankfulness, thankfulness creates Baraka in our lives. It creates enjoyment in our experience, and appreciation for what we have. So Allah subhanaw taala taught us to begin with praising and thanking Him praise. Alhambra is a combination of two things. I'll hand this praise and it is thanks, praise His for his glorious qualities.

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

You can praise somebody or something, even though you have not benefited from that person.

00:26:34--> 00:26:54

You can pray because you see the qualities you see the beauty and the magnificence and so on, and you praise that, but you don't necessarily have to benefit from that. But thanks is for what we benefit from. And therefore having a combination of both these things, we praise the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala from which we have personally benefited

00:26:56--> 00:27:03

from his Namath Allah subhanaw taala blessed us imaginal casier rockmelon in his

00:27:04--> 00:27:11

record, this Hadith, which is narrated by Abdullah Delano, and is from the collection of Nevada

00:27:12--> 00:27:28

and the slave of Allah once said, Oh Allah, yours is the hummed, that is suitable for the grace of your magnificence, magnificent countenance your glorious face, and which is suitable for the greatness of your supreme authority.

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

What did the slave say? He said Robbie laka hamdu

00:27:33--> 00:27:46

lillahi wa Chica was a missile tonic. He said Oh la la Alhambra be Oh my Arab luck al hamdu yo is all hunt comm I am Bobby Lee, Jelani logic,

00:27:47--> 00:27:53

the beam, the magnificence of the Arabic language cannot be brought into any other language.

00:27:57--> 00:28:01

Therapy like Al hamdu cama yamaki li Jalali watch

00:28:03--> 00:28:21

Allah, all praise and glory to you, in keeping with the glory of your glorious countenance, the magnificence of your glorious face. What does he mean soul tonic, and in keeping with the magnificence of your power and of your kingdom?

00:28:23--> 00:28:47

Let me tell us having said that the recording angels had never heard these words of praise before. So they were confused about how many Hassan had to write for this what reward to write, so they go to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the report does matter to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the matter, even before it is reported, Allah subhanaw taala knew what his slave was going to say even before his slave knew what he was going to say. So Allah is aware,

00:28:49--> 00:28:52

but the angels are doing their duty. So the God Allah subhanho wa Taala and they say, Yara

00:28:53--> 00:29:32

Yara Bana, your slave said this, he praised you in words that we have never heard before. And so tell us what to write as reward for his praise. And Allah subhanaw taala then asked the angels, as I've said many times before, anytime you hear ideas like this, what is the meaning? Why do you say last? Not because Allah needs to know. Allah asked in order to establish witnesses in favor of his slave on the Day of Judgment. So Allah asked the question, the angels reply, and that reply of the angels is recorded for the slave in favor of the slave on the Day of Judgment.

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

He says What did he say? and

00:29:37--> 00:29:56

Sandra Bullock al hamdu lillahi wa Chica was a missile tonic. And there was a record for my slave, the words as he said them, and I will reward him in keeping with the glory of my face and in keeping with the magnificence of my king

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

as even so what

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

What is that? What?

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

What is that? What

00:30:05--> 00:30:17

I might say well you know, I wish Allah gives me an I make this law for myself and while you May Allah give us the words which pleases him to the extent where he will say in our favor that I will reward him in keeping with my glory, inshallah.

00:30:19--> 00:30:25

But let me tell you something which we are all doing as we are sitting right here, for which also Allah has not specified a reward.

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

I know what that is. That is your fasting. That is your song.

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

Allah did not specify a reward for the song.

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

Allah subhanaw taala said, so mu Li, will actually be

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

Allah said the fastest for me, and I will reward it.

00:30:46--> 00:30:56

How much Alhamdulillah that Allah did not say how much? Because if it if he had said how much it would be restricted to that figure

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

on Amazon, I will re watch.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

What is the reward we expect from a lie?

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

What does anyone expect?

00:31:09--> 00:31:13

There was a region of in the time of the Emperor Akbar.

00:31:15--> 00:31:17

His region was a man called Baraka.

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

And his title was Hannah Hannah,

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

and is named after him.

00:31:24--> 00:31:30

Now, Dr. Han, Hannah was a very wise man, he was a he's a great scholar. And he was known for his wisdom.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

So one day he was traveling from Delhi talking about

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

and the journey of 10 minus 10 modules.

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

So on the first Monday, when the obviously this is the region of the Mughal Emperor, so you know, he's not

00:31:47--> 00:31:53

going alone is long after the khilafah there was a time when the ameerul momineen went on one camera.

00:31:54--> 00:32:07

And that is why Islam has a history in India that it didn't doesn't have history in the Middle East. May Allah protect us from Jehovah, which suits only Allah subhanho wa Taala. But just to give you and draw the picture for you.

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

So first Manzil

00:32:11--> 00:32:25

before the minister reaches there, obviously the court is set and the tents and the food and the all the pomp and splendor of the Mongol Empire is there to behold.

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

And in the evening, we have Dr. Carson sh down in his court advocate comes

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

and he resides a portion couplet.

00:32:36--> 00:32:43

And he says My name bahco hodesh Toby urbanist Hara Jackie Rafi, Masato Bhargava,

00:32:44--> 00:32:48

he said the the money from the wealthy person the honey

00:32:50--> 00:33:15

can go anywhere you can go into the desert and go into the jungle you can go anywhere, he does not become a very and this is not the Arabic very which means straight. This is the Persian odori which means soccer, which means a beggar or somebody who's in need. He said he cannot become a very her jacket shadow. Her jacket off he Masato Bhargava, wherever he goes. He puts up his tents. His court is set and his Varga is caught is there.

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

Now that

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

indicated to his treasure, and the treasure gave this locker

00:33:23--> 00:33:27

a bag of 100 Gold dinners 100 recipes.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

The man took this and he went away

00:33:31--> 00:33:37

and talking about how we are Pokhara Illallah we don't know to ask

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

the one who gives is ready to give.

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

We don't know to ask, we don't know to take

00:33:47--> 00:33:55

next day next month Well, again, the trends and everything else said the Court has said the same comes and the result is the same couplet.

00:33:57--> 00:34:09

And he says money Mako does Tobia been very nice. Her jacket off to him. Masato Barca subterrane Hara indicates to his treasure and gives him another bag of gold another 100 dinars

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

the third day when the campus set

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

and

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

after Mr. Khanna sits there

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

and there is no sign of this okay

00:34:23--> 00:34:31

so after a while he says to the to his people he said Where is that money we will he was there last two days he came so I sent out some soldiers to look for him and saw no sign of the guy

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

from soccer is not there is I don't know where he's gone isn't is nowhere to be found. So I'm gonna smiled and he said comes up Nicola.

00:34:44--> 00:34:44

Up comes up.

00:34:46--> 00:34:52

Everything he said comes up a little. He said he was a person of without depth.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

He said hum Neto pilot and he does Kira Kalia. He's around the first day itself wired

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

I had made the era I had made the intention of giving him 100 gold coins for the all attendees. He's a linen he had on Gary. He said if he couldn't take what can I do?

00:35:11--> 00:35:18

If he didn't know how to take what can I do? He said I intended to give him for, you know, 1000 Gold dinars he went away with 100

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

Ziva,

00:35:21--> 00:35:30

sometimes when you have over $200 grant hats to all of you who have not done hygiene to all of us who have done had we Allah grant us many more inshallah,

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

the thing that I that strikes me every time when I go for Hajj, and I am in charge

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

is how quickly I run out of all the device.

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

The time of day from morning till evening.

00:35:46--> 00:35:52

And I have done all I do as I look at my clock is like 15 minutes. Now, I have another eight hours to go.

00:35:55--> 00:36:15

See, and that is why Allah subhanaw taala in the law sort of said that Europe says that if all the people and all the all the men and all the jinn and again, reflect on every single word of the Harris, nothing is accidental. What is the meaning of all the men and all the jinn.

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

I can tell you what the men I don't know how many jinn but man I can tell you.

00:36:22--> 00:36:44

All the men means every single king that ever existed, ever existed, and who will ever exist till the last day, every single nubby who ever existed, every single word of Allah Who ever existed, every single human being man or woman who ever existed from either a salon to the last person, whoever he or she is going to be.

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

And every gene

00:36:48--> 00:36:55

said Allah subhanaw taala says that all of these gathered together in one place, and they will be gathered on the Day of Judgment.

00:36:57--> 00:37:13

If all of them gathered together in one place, and they simultaneously ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for every single thing that they desire, is that and he's not saying needs, he's saying desire

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

is a big difference between need and desire.

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

Right. So Allah is not saying need he says every single thing they desire

00:37:24--> 00:37:49

if they all gathered together in one place and they all ask Allah subhanaw taala simultaneously for every single thing they desire, and if Allah subhanaw taala grants all of that to them, it is less for Allah subhanho wa Taala for his treasures, then dipping a needle in the ocean and taking it out.

00:37:51--> 00:38:06

Less than that, well how much water collects on the tip of our needle if you dip it into the ocean and bring it out? One drop perhaps less than that is all these desires put together for Allah subhanaw taala instructions.

00:38:09--> 00:38:44

So when we say Alhamdulillah Hara, let me think about this. inshallah, as I told you, this series will last for some time and shall we should we should reflect on the Quran is a great tragedy, that we are the people who are take pride in the fact that we carry the book of Allah, that we carry the hay of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he received, that we carry this in our hearts to some extent, may Allah bless all of them who carried the Complete Book in their hearts. May Allah subhanaw taala fill their lives with the new of that book. And may Allah give us the thought give us the Baraka from that. When we pray we hand them when they when they decide in Torah which Allah

00:38:47--> 00:38:51

and May Allah give us And may Allah miraculously put the Quran into our hearts.

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

We have this rightful pride. I'm not saying arrogance, obscene pride, that our humble reliable. I mean, we are the people who are the Hamelin of the Koran.

00:39:05--> 00:39:07

And then, if that is so

00:39:08--> 00:39:12

do we want to be like those about whom Allah subhanaw taala said

00:39:13--> 00:39:25

kamasan lol, Casa de Mar yeah mille as fara. They are like donkeys who carry books? Do we want to be donkeys who are carrying the Quran? no benefit from the Quran it's only a boys only about

00:39:26--> 00:39:33

a weight or do we want to be like those? The Sahaba Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah

00:39:35--> 00:39:40

who when they recited the Kalam, the angels came down to listen.

00:39:41--> 00:39:50

Who said we know there are no one of the answer is Abba. I will end with this because this relates to Soraka which would have decided today Allah

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

who said no, and he was a man you know how he came to Islam. When musashino Myra delana was sent to Medina

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

My

00:40:02--> 00:40:12

dad got so angry this that he came and he drew an arrow and stood in front of me. And he said, I am going to leave this religious I don't know.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

He said get out of here otherwise I'll kill you.

00:40:23--> 00:40:26

Sup guys gonna do it is violated.

00:40:28--> 00:40:40

He's violated and he told him the error you can release anytime. But why don't you sit down and listen to what I have to say. And then if you don't like it, I will leave.

00:40:41--> 00:40:42

If you like it you do what you want.

00:40:46--> 00:40:52

Right is the nature of people who are genuinely brave or courageous that you don't have to impress you so that they know why.

00:40:53--> 00:40:55

He said okay, fine, I can kill you in that.

00:40:57--> 00:41:03

So he put on his arrow and he said and Mousavi Romero de la da sala de la

00:41:06--> 00:41:14

Rosa Rosa Sara didn't explain. He didn't give barracks. He didn't debate. He didn't argue. He merely recited Cora.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

Thou Mohammed Salah Salam is the recitation of Quran

00:41:20--> 00:41:25

and those who learns from him, there is a record. So most of you know my recited Sankara.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

It was it was I will say you know there is a this is the color. He said this is what

00:41:36--> 00:41:40

he said I said Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhana wa sallam.

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

He said, I accept you. So, if this is the color if this is what you came with,

00:41:48--> 00:41:55

the Quran is the spoken word. The Quran enters the heart through the years by listening to the karma of Allah.

00:41:56--> 00:42:00

So this was it, you know, there are a lot who was praying, he was praying.

00:42:01--> 00:42:07

And his horse was tied next to him. And his son was sleeping on the ground using a camp.

00:42:08--> 00:42:15

And he was reciting sort of the graph in the head. And he suddenly saw his horse getting very agitated,

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

and jumping and so on, and he was afraid that the, his son would probably be harmed by this horse.

00:42:23--> 00:42:30

So he completed his presentation, he looked up and he saw this cloud, he saw this cloud, and they were light sparkling in the cloud.

00:42:32--> 00:42:38

He was obviously he was a mist. So he went to Arizona. This is what happened to me. I was reciting SoCal Gas.

00:42:39--> 00:42:43

And his cloud descended, and there were lights shining in the cloud.

00:42:45--> 00:43:08

And I stopped my resignation because I was afraid my son would be probably be injured because his house was jumping up too much. What was his cloud? Nabi sallallahu wasallam said that was Sakina. He said that was the cloud which was filled with angels in america came to listen to your recitation. And he said, if you had continued to recite the people of Medina would have seen them alike and the money.

00:43:15--> 00:43:17

This is the caliber of Allah.

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

So you have one

00:43:20--> 00:43:27

choice of being the Hamelin of the Quran about, about whom Allah subhanaw taala called people like that donkeys.

00:43:29--> 00:43:30

We just carry a lot.

00:43:31--> 00:43:38

Or we have the opportunity to be among those who received the column of Allah subhanaw taala. And who fulfilled the haka

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

who fulfilled half of this color.

00:43:42--> 00:43:58

And Allah subhanaw taala gave them the Baraka of this column in their lives. He gave them the Baraka of the recitation on their tongues, he gave them the Baraka of the recitation, in the in their Salah, where Allah connected to them, and he gave them the Baraka of that recitation in their door. When they asked Allah give.

00:44:00--> 00:44:35

ask Allah subhanaw taala to make all of you among those who are who he is pleased with, ask Allah subhanaw taala to honor his guests who have come to his house, ask Allah subhana wa Taala to honor his guests because there is no one who honors his guest Better than he can always guess. ask Allah subhanaw taala to put into your heart, all those doors which are good for you, so that you may ask them and if you do not ask them ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you anyway even if you didn't ask, ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive all of you. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to open your hearts to his Deen to his religion to his color to his to his kita to his speech and ask Allah subhanaw

00:44:35--> 00:44:59

taala to let and Islam enter into your hearts and to fill your lives with the knower of this beautiful Deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to gather us all together under the under the shade of his throat on the day when there will be no shade except to shade. ask Allah subhanaw taala to take us behind Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam across the bridge of sera into Jonathan for those who Allah will

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

Ladies up, what's Allahu Allah Nabeel Karim? Allah Allah He was happy as you may be Rama tikka, Amara camino and hamdulillah
