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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah workers

00:00:05--> 00:00:13

in the London Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah, al anbiya wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

My brothers and sisters,

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

today is perhaps

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

the last Juma in Ramadan

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

we delight Allah next Juma maybe eat

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

and if it is not in the villa hunter gives us one extra day then it will be on Saturday.

00:00:39--> 00:00:54

But if it is next tomorrow then that means this is the last day of Ramadan and see how quickly Ramadan departs. Just now we were talking about Ramadan coming and now we are talking about Ramadan going.

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

And as I said in the last Juma also, the issue is not whether Ramadan came or didn't come the issue is not whether we saw Ramadan or we did not see Ramadan the issue is not whether we entered Ramadan or we did not enter Ramadan. The issue is did Ramadan enter us?

00:01:16--> 00:01:47

Did Ramadan enter us? Did when we say I got Ramadan? Are you talking about a date change? Or are you talking about a life change? There's a big difference between the two things did change has no meaning. And a life change means that from tomorrow onwards or today onwards, you will have a different life which means that you will have insha Allah almost on a different ending and that is where we are looking forward to go to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a state where Allah subhanaw taala inshallah must and will give us genital for those who are already savage Allah.

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

And that's why we are doing this series of hotbars on understanding the Quran or reflecting on the Quran. And as I mentioned to you, we have taken sort of the Fatiha as the

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

surah to help us to understand the importance of reflecting on the Quran, and through the father because that is the surah that we recite the most often which is that the Father in every single regard or every Salah, whether it is whether it is soon or whether it is nothing and there is no Salah without oral Fatiha. Therefore it's the surah which everybody knows and everybody was saying more than anything else and it's a good idea to take that as the basis for us to understand

00:02:31--> 00:02:47

what how and we can relate with the Quran. We This is the third of the series of Cottbus the first one we talked about the whole issue of reflecting on the Quran. The second one we talked about the first is also the Fatah which is

00:02:50--> 00:03:29

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and I'm really I'm really observing that because many times we forget that as I'm as I mentioned, last Juma there is a difference of opinion whether this Bismillah Rahmani Raheem should be recited aloud in loud recitation whether it should be recited aloud in Salah or whether it should be recited silently, but there is no difference of opinion about reciting it because it is the first Ayat of the surah. And if you are starting the circle Fatiha recitation without Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim then your data is not complete, and it was also the fact there is not complete then your Salah obviously does not happen. So, therefore, ensure that you start with

00:03:29--> 00:03:42

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim after all will have an effect on the regime. And then of course, whether you say that loudly or silently both of them are fine, but do not miss saying Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:03:44--> 00:03:57

So, today we come to the second Ayat of Surah Fatiha which also we begin we started talking about that last remark and I mentioned that to you and I mentioned this in relation to that and inshallah we will continue with that.

00:03:58--> 00:04:12

So to remind ourselves of Surat Al Fatiha Allah subhanho wa Taala said, I will lay him in a shape on the Bismillah R Rahman II

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

Alhamdulillah Bella me in

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

00:04:46--> 00:04:53

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

in order to decide this last in the way I did, because

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

To ensure that the last eyes one eye

00:05:03--> 00:05:23

is one eye and usually when we decided we decided as if it was two wires, so to ensure that it is one eye he would go up to him then he would come back and say well, darling, so it is, we understand that this one eye which is the seventh I have the Sora the desire is I mentioned to you while the holidays which is mentioned

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

in

00:05:25--> 00:05:52

Nicosia, and it's a hadith which is meant is narrated by Abdullah Omar radi Allahu anhu Ma, and it is in the magic where the sola is Allah, Allah. He said that there was a slave of Allah subhanaw taala who praise Allah subhanho wa Taala in these words, and what did the slave say? He said Rob Ballack al hamdu Komiyama village Allah Allah Chica was even satanic. He said, Oh my Rob, I praise you. I praise you.

00:05:53--> 00:06:17

rabbinical Hamed, all tanks and All praise is for you or my rub. Come I'm really generally in keeping with the glory and magnificence of your glorious countenance in the glory in the keep in keeping with the glory and magnificence of your face. What was he missile tonic and in keeping with the glory and magnificence of your great and magnificent kingdom?

00:06:18--> 00:06:22

So when the slave praised Allah subhanho wa Taala in these words,

00:06:23--> 00:06:49

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that the recording angels had never heard these words before. So they did not know how much reward to record for the slave. So they went to a lot of anodal and they said, Yara be your slave has praised you in words which we never had before. So how much reward should we write for him? So Allah subhanho wa Taala asked the angels, what did my slaves say?

00:06:50--> 00:07:10

And the angels say my is your slave said Rob Bullock al hamdu lillahi wa Chico was even Soltani. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then said, write down the words of my slave as he said them, and I will reward him in keeping with the glory and magnificence of my face and in keeping with the glory and magnificence of my kingdom.

00:07:11--> 00:07:54

Now, point to note, anytime you hear a hobby is like this, where we are having this kind of conversation, we are saying that the angel said this to Allah. And Allah asked them what did the slave say? or What did you see and so on? Please understand, Allah does not need the angels to tell him what happened. Allah subhanaw taala knows what the slave said, The Lord knows what the slave was going to say, even before the slave himself knew what he was going to say. So why is elastic Daniels the Allah subhanaw taala is asking the angels because of the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala What is the meaning of that? Allah is asking the angels and what the angels say gets recorded in the book of

00:07:54--> 00:08:12

the slave as a whole, just in favor of the slave. On the day of judgment, the angels will bear witness that this is what your slave said. So when Allah subhanaw taala asked the slave, this is a Rama from Allah subhanaw taala. So please understand this don't get confused and say this Hadees is wrong because how can I ask?

00:08:14--> 00:08:21

Right? So don't get confused with that. That's the reason why when you read a Hadith, it is important to have some understanding of the soul of Hadith.

00:08:22--> 00:09:05

Without just reading the Hadith, sometimes we get confused because we don't know what we are saying. So inshallah, that is something important to do. Now, my brothers and sisters, I remind myself in you that as for doing justice to the praise of Allah, as for doing justice, to Allah subhanho wa Taala is right to be thanked. It is not in our power to do that. No person, no human being no creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it's an angel, whether it's a gene or whether it's human, or whether it is any creature that we know about, or we don't know about, can actually thank Allah, Allah Allah in a way that is befitting His grace and His Majesty in a way that is befitting

00:09:05--> 00:09:42

his innumerable Namath on us. So, this is not something that is actually possible. So what is the best way of thanking Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala actually mentioned his point of thanking Him, Allah subhanaw taala and xataka which you would have read today, Allah subhanaw taala said colocar barrameda Lika Lima Tierra B, Lana fitel baharu cobla Anton vada calima Torah b walo Gina be Miss Lima de la semana does it say to them oh Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to all of mankind, if the sea if the oceans of the earth were ink.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

And the words of my rub the words of praise and sangs of my rub were written using the waters of the seven oceans, and all the waters on the face of the earth if all of this became ink and if the braised

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala word to be written using that ink, all of them would be exhausted before the words of by Rob would be finished. Even if they brought one complete set like that, according to it, meaning that if they brought another seven oceans full of ink, they will also finish.

00:10:21--> 00:10:36

Now, please understand this, sometimes people get confused. How can the oceans be finished, blah, blah, blah. Take an ant. And don't do cruelty to animals. But don't just think as an experiment, don't let it die. Take an ant and put it into a teaspoon of water.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

For the end, that teaspoon of water is the ocean, the and can drown and die in that teaspoon of water.

00:10:46--> 00:11:09

What is the ocean? on a planet? Which is less I'm not talking theology, I'm talking science. What is the ocean, which is on a planet, which is less than one grain of sand on a beach with regard to this, this Milky Way galaxy that Allah subhanaw taala has created.

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

So what is seven oceans? What is the phrase of our

00:11:17--> 00:11:20

use? Use? Let's use our all our knowledge.

00:11:21--> 00:11:34

We know and as I said, I'm not talking theology, I'm talking science. What do we know about this Milky Way galaxy? What do we know about this galaxy itself compared to our solar system? What do we know about the earth compared to our solar system?

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

The Milky Way galaxy alone

00:11:39--> 00:11:51

in the in the visible universe, what they have been able to see through the radio telescopes and so on. There are billions, not millions, there are billions of galaxies the size of our galaxy.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

In the visible universe,

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

what about what is not yet visible?

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

So what are seven oceans? on a planet, which is less than one grain of sand on a beach, we tend to get very full of ourselves.

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

We tend to get very full of ourselves and others reminding us don't get too full of yourself.

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

You think you have property?

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

How much property do you have? your property is measured in what?

00:12:26--> 00:12:36

For some of us, it is measured in square feet. For some of us it is measured in square inches. For some of us it is measured in you know, maybe acres.

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

I don't know if there's anyone here who has a property that he measured in square miles.

00:12:43--> 00:12:50

But you're sitting in a place where the king of this place owned property which was much actually measurable in square miles.

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

Where is it today?

00:12:55--> 00:12:59

And even if Allah never gave that kind of Kingdom to anyone, ever,

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

the biggest kingdom

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

that ever existed on the face of the earth, in the history of mankind was the kingdoms created single handedly by Genghis Khan.

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

And that is kind of not a Muslim. Incidentally, this is Genghis Khan was the Khan was a title meaning leader. That's the

00:13:20--> 00:13:29

single biggest myth extended included the whole of China, the whole of Asia, and Europe all the way up to Austria.

00:13:31--> 00:13:44

Largest Kingdom many times the size of the Kingdom of Alexander many times the size of the Roman Empire, many times the size of the British Empire on about which they said the sun never sets and now the seven the sun never rises.

00:13:47--> 00:14:05

And that kingdom today, the single remnant, listen carefully. This is a photo of Allah. The single remnant of the largest kingdom that ever existed on this planet is one pillar base

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

in the shape of a turtle

00:14:09--> 00:14:16

from the city of Karakoram, which was built by the son of Japanese whose name was

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

built, Karakoram

00:14:22--> 00:14:30

and the only remnant of the Kingdom of Genghis Khan is one pillar base, not even the word pillar, one piece one pillar base.

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

So how long do you think you are making them is going to last?

00:14:36--> 00:14:42

And that is why Allah Jalla Allah He said kulu Manali have fun, well, Yaba what Europe because Allah

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

and that is the one we worship. And why am I saying this because Allah subhanaw taala began his column with this. All goodness begins with with thanks to Allah subhanaw taala so how do we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala The best way to praise Allah subhanho wa

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

dolla dolla dolla, who is to use his own words, because nobody knows Allah better than Allah knows himself. And nobody can describe Allah better than Allah can describe himself and nobody can praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and glorify His magnificence, the ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala can do it for himself.

00:15:20--> 00:15:51

So let us see what is what Allah subhanaw taala said, and since all of these are ads, which all of you are familiar with and not going to translate, just listen to the Kalam of Allah. I have said this many times before to remind myself when you the Kalam of Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Lu was a spoken word. It was not a written word did not come on a piece of paper. It was a spoken word. It entered the hearts of people through the years. It is the power of the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala that even people who do not even understand the column it has an effect on them.

00:15:53--> 00:16:02

There is a dear friend of mine also one of my Asakusa who was speaking at the Hartford Seminary in the United States. In this in the state of Connecticut.

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

He was invited to give a lecture on the on

00:16:08--> 00:16:46

introduction to Islam. And this is a seminary it was it's a it's a school for priests and nuns. And he said when I went into the chapel is a few 100 of them. And on the left side, the the priest was sitting on the light right side the ladies the nuns were sitting. And he said I began with reciting the last Ayat of surah. Raja, which of course, I will also recite for you today. He said, I began with reciting that now all of these are Americans that don't know Arabic. They don't understand what what was going on. They came to listen to a lecture in English. The whole lecture was in English, except he said I decided to I asked him, I said, Why did you start with a foreigner? He said,

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

because I thought let people hear the caliber of Allah

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

because maybe their ears never heard the Colombo phone.

00:16:54--> 00:17:11

So let them hear what Allah said. Whether they understand or they don't understand. So he recited the last two items of Serato Dasha. He said, he said, I noticed to my intense surprise that the people I could see in front of me, he said, many of them are weeping. He said they had tears in their eyes.

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

He said, I'm reciting the surah. And I'm wondering why the cardboard, they don't even understand what I'm saying.

00:17:19--> 00:17:31

So he said, anyway, I finished my lecture. And after I finished my lecture, many of them came to greet me and so on and so forth. So I decided to ask some of them. I said, Tell me why you were crying? He said, Yes. He said, Why? He said, I don't know.

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

He said, I don't know.

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

Why am I saying this? I'm saying this because we have people, Muslims who understand the color of Allah subhanaw taala, whose eyes are dry like a desert.

00:17:48--> 00:17:59

And not only are their eyes dry, like a desert, the brains are so addled. And they are so stupid, that if somebody cries in recitation, they make a remark on that person.

00:18:01--> 00:18:14

That's a sign of their ignorance and stupidity. That's a sign of the distance from the caliber of Allah Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said we, when you hear the Kalam of Allah because the ayat were revealed in sadness,

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

and he said, If you cannot weep, pretend to weep, let your Rob at least see you making an effort.

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

He said the eye of the column of Allah came we were revealed in a state of sadness.

00:18:31--> 00:18:50

Allah subhanho wa sallam said Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect two eyes from the fire of Jannah visit even the smoke of the fire of janome is haram on two kinds of eyes. He said the eye which weeps for the glory and magnificence of Allah, and the eye which stays awake, for the protection of the Muslims

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

are the

00:18:57--> 00:19:05

dryness of the eyes is a sign of the sickness of the heart. He said it's a sign of the hardness of the heart.

00:19:07--> 00:19:19

But unfortunately, today, we are so disconnected from our Rouhani Earth. We are so disconnected from our health of our spirit. We are so disconnected from the health of our our,

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

our hearts, that even if the heart is dead, we don't know.

00:19:25--> 00:19:38

Even if the heart is dead, we are not aware. We have a headache we know that immediately. We have a toothache we know that immediately, but your heart Your soul is crying and weeping because you will do nothing to nourish it.

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

The soul is starving and you do not feed your soul. But we are completely unaware.

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

We don't even know the soul is starving.

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

We do not even know the soul is starving.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

So listen to how Allah subhanaw taala described himself

00:20:02--> 00:20:07

All right on the Bismillah

00:20:08--> 00:20:23

he Allahu Allah, Allah Allah who will hi yo Luca yo la whoa whoa Xena no lahoma is

00:22:47--> 00:22:52

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Allah, Allah.

00:22:54--> 00:22:57

Allah psalmody lamea Li.

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

What a miracle. Whoa for one I had

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala described himself thus. And he described himself in many other parts of the Quran.

00:23:15--> 00:23:20

And voila, he Allah subhanho wa Taala, the glory and magnificence of his description cannot be equal to

00:23:22--> 00:23:27

no matter which translation you read, you will never get the glory and magnificence of the Arabic.

00:23:28--> 00:23:41

So learn Arabic learn the the look of the Quran. learn the language of the Quran. I've said this many times before, and I'm going to keep saying this over and over.

00:23:43--> 00:23:48

And that is let your voice resonate in your homes

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

reciting the column of Allah.

00:23:54--> 00:24:02

Let the walls and the drapes and the furnishings and let your wives and your children bear witness

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

to your voice reciting the column of Allah.

00:24:09--> 00:24:19

Do not deprive them of this. Give them memories where brothers and sisters give them memories. don't deprive them of this.

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

This is the treasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:26--> 00:24:31

You know, somebody asked me and I describe myself Thus, I see myself

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

as the keeper of the treasure of Allah

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

with one difference.

00:24:39--> 00:24:50

The keepers of the treasures of the worlds are gods. They prevent people from getting to the treasure. But I am a keyboard the treasure of Allah.

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

And my job is to ensure that that treasure is rooted.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

So I call the people I say Take it, take it. Take it

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

My robe is here to give.

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

Take it.

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

Let us see if you can finish it.

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

Take what you want.

00:25:13--> 00:25:53

Because my Arab said in the hat is a cutscene. He said that of all the men and all the jinn, all the humans that all the jinn from the first one to the last one were to gather together in one field. And if they were to ask me for every single thing that they desire, he did not say need, he said desire. If they were to ask me for every single thing that they desire at once, and if I gave them every single thing that they desire at once.

00:25:55--> 00:26:06

He said it would decrease from my treasure less than the water that comes out on the tip of a needle that you dip into an ocean and bring it out.

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

This is the glory of our luck.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

This is the glory of Your and my rub.

00:26:15--> 00:26:20

So take loot that treasure. Let's see if you can finish it.

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

The one who wants to give wants to give

00:26:27--> 00:26:31

you cannot take then the fault is not with the one who wants to give

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

our brothers and sisters This is the one we worship.

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

This is the one we worship.

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala Rama no Rahim jelajah Allah Allah.

00:26:50--> 00:26:59

We do not worship, the creations of our own imagination. We do not worship celestial bodies, or animals or trees or mountains or rivers.

00:27:00--> 00:27:07

We do not worship anything in creation. We worship the only one who is worthy of worship.

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

We worship the only one who is worthy of being worshipped. And that is the one who created all of this, who created all that we know who created all that we come to know as we grow and who created all of that which we do not know and which we will never know.

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

And by that, we are exalted over all creation.

00:27:36--> 00:27:45

And by that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave this creation into our control and said Saqqara laquan Murphy somehow to my fellow

00:27:48--> 00:27:52

and that is the one that I remind myself and you that we have to thank.

00:27:54--> 00:28:01

So let us try to quickly put a few pointers on what must you thank Allah for?

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

Allah Subhan

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

Allah Xia Santa cola Shankara

00:28:13--> 00:28:20

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

Allah.

00:28:33--> 00:28:39

He's the one who made everything. And he created everything that he created, he created a good

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

a son can see

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

allergy as an aqua Leisha in color.

00:28:51--> 00:29:10

And then all of a sudden he began the creation of mankind with clay. Allah subhanaw taala made the prototype of Adam alayhis salam with clay. Adam alayhis salam was never a newborn baby. Adam alayhis salam was never a youngster. He was never a teenager. He was a full grown man when he was born.

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

Because that was the prototype. That was the model.

00:29:17--> 00:29:40

Oh, by the culture in San Quentin, from Magellan, NASA, who means rally the mean by me. And then Allah subhanaw taala created a methodology for propagating of the human Nussle of the human being and that he did with Allah subhanaw taala says with water, the male and female discharges Allah subhanaw taala wrote the genetic codes. Allah subhanaw taala created the means of propagation of the human being.

00:29:42--> 00:29:47

And then he fashioned them and do proportion. And he breathed into him the soul

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

and he gave you hearing and he gave you sight and he gave you hearts kalila mata Sharon, little it is that you give thanks for

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

Last one, I mentioned again is creation and he mentioned again this gamma

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

one g balo. The work on akuna komazawa

00:30:19--> 00:30:20

Laila Ali,

00:30:25--> 00:30:29

Baba Naina voga komazawa Shiva,

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

sila Jo,

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

Amina, luzira, tema

00:30:39--> 00:30:41

de novo de jabby.

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

Tina,

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

Allah subhanaw taala describe us.

00:30:52--> 00:31:27

And he said, Have you not made the earth as a bed and the mountains as pegs, and have you not created you in bears, and have we made and may and we made your sleep as a thing of rest. And we made the night as a covering through its darkness, and maybe and we made the day for livelihood. And we built above us seven strong heavens, and we made there in a shining lamp, the sun, and we sent down rain from the cloud from the clouds, abundant water that we may have produced there with corn and vegetation and gardens have thick growth.

00:31:30--> 00:31:48

Our brothers and sisters, I'm not going to list all the items that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned with regard to his creation, and with regard to what he created in his Namath. There are many other is where Allah subhanaw taala reminded us of his favours. But why do we need a reminder when we look in the mirror every morning?

00:31:50--> 00:32:35

Please understand this. I've said this many times before stop living like robots. Live thoughtfully. Stop living mechanically stop living routinely. Why do we need to be reminded to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala when you look in the mirror every morning, why do we need a reminder when we walk without pain? When we eat without worrying about digestion? When we sleep without trouble and we wake up feeling fresh and energetic? Why do we need a reminder when we can admire a sunrise or a sunset? Or we can admire a fluorescent sunbird flitting from flower to flower drinking nectar? Why do we need a reminder when we look at our children, our parents and our spouses? Who Allah subhanaw

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

taala gave us without asking?

00:32:38--> 00:32:46

Why do we need a reminder when we look at all those who are not as blessed as we are? At least materially?

00:32:47--> 00:32:58

Why do we need a reminder when we stand in Salah in the presence of the Creator Himself? Why do we need a reminder except because we don't reflect

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

Why do we need a reminder except because we don't reflect

00:33:05--> 00:33:21

so let us reflect and my homework for you and don't go to sleep don't go to bed tonight unless you complete this job. My assignment for you is make a list of all the things that we have to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

carrying away we will do it inshallah mega list

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

or be like a lamb to come I'm very jealous. Because even

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

my brothers and sisters, the best thing about thankfulness is that it enhances appreciation of what we have. And that is a secret of happiness. Secret of happiness is not to have more. But to appreciate more secret of happiness is not to buy more, but to tank more to be more thankful.

00:33:55--> 00:34:00

The world we live We live in an upside down world, the world tells you or more

00:34:02--> 00:34:06

possessions add costs, not value.

00:34:08--> 00:34:24

The more you have, the more you will get embroiled in it, the more you have to look after it. Fill your house with curios. live in a house with looks like a museum. That's a very nice way of living in a life which is full of nuisance value, nothing else.

00:34:25--> 00:34:37

Complete nuisance value. You can do yard work ever in your house because you don't know what you will knock over. You spent half your life dusting all those crystal vases and whatnot and whatnot. And if you don't touch them, they look nasty.

00:34:39--> 00:34:42

And you spend a lot of money collecting all that junk.

00:34:44--> 00:34:53

If you have one of the museum's of one of our mailers valterra forgive him and put him in jail but one of the greatest junk collectors in the world. The museum is here today in this city.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Secret of happiness is to appreciate what we have

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

Not to Hank about what we don't have

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

a brother and sisters, don't miss out anything in that list.

00:35:08--> 00:35:11

Do not miss out anything in that list.

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

Make sure

00:35:16--> 00:35:22

for example, don't miss out the fact that your beautiful glossy hair is dead tissue.

00:35:24--> 00:35:29

Because if it wasn't, you would have to go under general anesthesia every time you needed a haircut.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

Think about that.

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

You ever think about that?

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

The ladies want to go get a perm.

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

You put their hair in the colors and burn it. Try it with your finger.

00:35:47--> 00:35:54

Same process, stick your finger in the palm color and see what happens. You do that with your hair and you have an amazing conversation with your hairdresser.

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

Should be thank Allah for that or not.

00:36:01--> 00:36:20

Hair, just hair. So don't miss out anything in that list. Ensure that you write everything in that list. My brother and sisters let us thank Allah for all that he gave us without asking. And let us thank him for all that he gave us when we asked for it.

00:36:21--> 00:36:31

And even more and even more. Let us thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he did not give us even though we asked for it,

00:36:32--> 00:36:58

reflect on this one. thank Allah for what he did not give you even though you begged and pleaded for it. While I allies witness and only allies witness and those of you who are now imagining that I'm gonna tell you something not on Not on your life that goes with me in my grave. But they were do as I made, which today I made to Raka or salah and I make sure to Allah, Allah

00:36:59--> 00:37:02

Alhamdulillah you did not give me what I asked you for

00:37:05--> 00:37:15

Alhamdulillah you did not give me what I asked you for, no matter how much I begged you you did not give it to me Alhamdulillah All Praise to you by Rob because if you had given me that thing which has to work,

00:37:17--> 00:37:18

I would be weeping tears of blood today.

00:37:20--> 00:37:31

Alhamdulillah you did not give me what you asked for. Truly Allah knows and we do not know. So let's that also all the noise that you made Allah Allah did not grant you are things that must go into the list of thankfulness.

00:37:33--> 00:37:40

My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned his quality of rubies, when he referred to himself as rumble alameen

00:37:41--> 00:38:06

He did not say hi Nicola alameen which is what he also is, he did not say Malika alameen He did not say Rasul Allah mean, he's your double alameen and what is this cific of removi at Allah subhanho wa Taala the quality and the attribute of removal of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the quality where he takes something which is incomplete, stage by stage to us to a state of completion and perfection.

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

And he does that with everything in his creation, whether or not they worship Him.

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

When I used to live in the US,

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

I was looking for a site to create a leadership high ropes outward challenge course.

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

So there was this American guy who told me he had this piece of land

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

in Maine,

00:38:35--> 00:38:42

in the northeast, mountainous area. And he said, I'll take you and show you if we like that piece of land and we will we'll set up the thing there.

00:38:43--> 00:39:02

So we were driving up there to Maine, and He took me to this piece of land. It was a mountaintop very, very beautiful, absolutely beautiful. And in in autumn, that whole area is like somebody has thrown randomly thrown, you know, cans of paint everywhere. It's so amazing this the

00:39:04--> 00:39:04

data.

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

So this was not autumn, this was still spring. So we drove up there and he took me into this grove of oak trees.

00:39:14--> 00:39:17

Huge oak trees 200 feet high.

00:39:18--> 00:39:23

The trunk of the tree is such that the two of us together we couldn't put our arms around the tree

00:39:26--> 00:39:35

and under very thick growth so it was completely shaded, very thick growth. I'm talking about the Rubaiyat of Allah subhanaw taala What is the meaning in

00:39:37--> 00:39:42

the ground under those oak trees obviously because it's all covered. Well, almost bare.

00:39:43--> 00:39:44

Almost bare.

00:39:46--> 00:39:52

But I noticed that on the ground. There were some green what looked like berries.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

So I picked up one of them. Now I know what an oak acorn looks like the the fruit of the oak tree which is called an acorn.

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

It looks more like a superhero.

00:40:04--> 00:40:10

So this is not the icon. So I picked up one of those things. I said, What is this? So the man said, you don't know what it is? Of course not.

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

He said, let me show you.

00:40:13--> 00:40:28

He took this thing from me small green Berry. And he took it from me. And I realized that wasn't the barrier at all. It was a compact, it was a small green thing made of compacted oak leaves.

00:40:29--> 00:40:37

So he peeled it open like an onion. He peel it open like an onion, and in the center of that was a very small one,

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

a very small larva.

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

Then he tells me the story, he said, you know what this is, as you know,

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

he said this is the larva of a particular fly

00:40:52--> 00:41:08

which lays its eggs on the terminal but of the arc, what is the terminal but the terminal bud is the peak that tip of the brand of the growing branch on an oak tree where is that it is 200 feet in the air

00:41:09--> 00:41:52

completely exposed to the atmosphere to the winds and the snows and the rain. This fly lays its eggs on the terminal bud of the oak. And then the man says you know a strange thing happens because those of you who studied any any any kind of biology, the terminal bud is the only thing which grows right. But the man says the minute the fly lays the eggs on the terminal but the terminal bud stops growing and the leaves below the terminal bud start growing and they grow and they unveil of the terminal bud and it compacts into a round berry breaks by itself and drops down

00:41:57--> 00:42:03

and he said those eggs hatch and the larva is in the middle of its food.

00:42:05--> 00:42:08

It's like being bought inside a bar of dark chocolate or something.

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

He said the lava is in the middle of its food. He said it's completely protected by the by the the leaves and it has dropped down from the top so it is now shaded by the oak trees.

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

And he said the larva eats and it grows and then it makes a hole and it flies away.

00:42:34--> 00:42:37

Think about that tears in my eyes amantha Why are you crying I said because this is Halloween.

00:42:38--> 00:42:53

This is Halloween. It's easy to understand Allah subhanaw taala in the great things of his creation. It's easy to talk about constellations and mountains and and deep oceans and you know blue whales and so on. But remember the rub,

00:42:54--> 00:43:00

who creates a fly? What is a flying? What is a fly? You do that and that flies history

00:43:04--> 00:43:06

that fly which he creates?

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

What does he do with that fly?

00:43:10--> 00:43:23

He decrees that another mark of his which is like a mountain 200 feet high. Huge Magnificent muckleneuk

00:43:24--> 00:43:27

Allah subhanaw taala makes it subservient to that fly.

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

Allah decrees that the oak trees job is to protect the eggs of that fly.

00:43:35--> 00:43:41

He changes the growth pattern of that oak tree when the fly lay eggs and egg on that belief.

00:43:43--> 00:43:50

All this creation all of this to protect one egg of one flag.

00:43:54--> 00:43:55

This is our

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

like sometimes I feel

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

like a marathon

00:44:05--> 00:44:09

girl like a madman in the streets reciting Quran

00:44:10--> 00:44:14

buza who's this crazy man is crazy nutcase.

00:44:15--> 00:44:24

Subhana Allah, may Allah put this into our hearts, love your rock because there is nobody who is worthy of love more than Allah subhanho

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

love Allah

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

because there is no one who is worthy of loving more than Allah.

00:44:34--> 00:44:53

The one who creates imagine this thing, the entire creation subjugated to one egg of one flavor life. That is our up and that is why I say for a Muslim to worry about his sustenance for a Muslim to worry about his belly is haram haram Haram.

00:44:54--> 00:44:56

It means you have no Eman.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

It means that your Eman is in great danger.

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

Because this rub,

00:45:03--> 00:45:10

who if he decides to create that fly, then he ensures that everything that is required

00:45:12--> 00:45:18

for that flight to be born to grow up and to reach a state of perfection

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

is already provided.

00:45:23--> 00:45:48

Then what do you think that Rob will do about us, who are human beings I should have will not look at and on top of that, who are people of human which Allah subhanaw taala gave us without asking. And on top of that, we are people who he gave his column to and he taught us how to recite this color. And on top of that, we are people who stand in worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we say

00:45:50--> 00:45:54

when we come to that, I will explain to you what magic there is in this

00:45:55--> 00:45:59

what do you think he will do to us, leave us abandon us go starve

00:46:01--> 00:46:02

read my column and go die.

00:46:05--> 00:46:25
