and sort of mme ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada mentions in the beautiful Ayatollah Karima. Allah starts with the roval mocha Todd cov I installed the meaning of which only Allah subhanaw taala knows. And then Allah says this is a mention of the mercy of your loved to his slaves or Korea.
When he called out to his robe Allah a call in secret ninja and huffy,
saying my rub. Indeed my bones have grown feeble and gray hair has spread on my head. And I have never been unblessed in my diet to you or my robe. And verily I fear my relatives after me, since my wife is bad.
So give me from yourself and heir
who shall inherit me and inherit also the property of Jaco Ali salaam, which is the mantle of Nobu watts, property of Jaco is not worth it is prophethood
and make him my rub one with whom you are well priest, Allah Zahra della Rosa Korea Verily, We give you the glad tidings of a son. His name will be ah here we have given that name to none before him. The very blessed name
the variable is Allah. Allah says He said Myra, how can I have a son but my wife is barren and I have I have reached the extreme old age.
This is the the humaneness of the Navy which comes out
and Allah said he said
So it will be Coholic.
Your rub says it is easy for me. Certainly I have created you before when you had been nothing.
The very early Salam said, My rub a point for me a sign.
And he said, geladeira, who your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights, though having no bodily defect.
Then he came out to his people from Almira from his place of worship, and he told them by signs to glorify Allah subhanaw taala praises in the morning and in the afternoon.
It was said to him, oh, yeah, hold fast the scripture which is thorough coudl kita Bobby over.
And we gave him wisdom while still yet while yet a child who had wisdom when he was even a young as a young child, and made him sympathetic to man as a mercy from Us or grant from us, and pure from since and he was righteous and dutiful towards his parents, as he was neither arrogant nor disobedient to Allah his parents.
And Salah be on him the day he was born, the day he dies, and the day he will be raised up to life again.
My brothers and sisters
the beautiful story here.
The first and most important part of this story is ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in the story of Zakaria is as narrated in sort of Maria, Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us the method of making dua. How can you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala which is powerful and which will be accepted.
So first and foremost, see who Allah is sure as an example, of a person whose door is accepted.
That is a Korean Islamism, Nabil of Allah, what is the single common quality between all the Gambia that they were obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala that they'd never disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala so the first and foremost thing to inculcate and cultivate in ourselves if we want our daughter to be accepted is to become obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala did
not play games with that not be disobedient not be rebellious, not try to find loopholes here and there not go for shopping. Right become obedient to Allah subhanaw taala 100% in all aspects of our lives, so this is the first and most important thing to do. Then the girl is Salam. Second quality we know about okay Salam is that he was connected with Allah subhanaw taala. He said, Oh Allah, you have never disregarded you're never rejected my dua. So here is a person who is connected with Allah subhanho wa taala. The Malacca know His voice, they carry his voice up to Allah subhana wa Tada. It is not somebody who prays when he is when he when he has free time. It's somebody who prays
continuously and who prays constantly and constantly and by pray praise by praying I don't mean just standing on place, continuous Zica of Allah subhanaw taala dill God that the heart is is alive in the heart continues to make dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala even while he is engaged in worldly pursuits whatever he has to do so obedience dollars manager in every respect right obviously is an Ibiza is not doing anything haram. He's doing all these things which are haram and more to the level of ESA.
Then when he makes do art or not monitor and see this is a sequence as follows up from what he has seen in medieval Islam. That here is this little girl who's your who's pious was praying to Allah subhanaw taala she's in a room by herself Allah subhanaw taala sending her food from Germany. So the guy says, Well, this is my Rob geladeira loser let me also ask Him
for what I need. So he is now making that so when he makes his dua Leviathan is teaching us and showing us how we made this first of all, coffee. He's not standing there. There was a destroying the sila. A man came into the masjid and he's he started making God. He prayed as the Allah, Allah y'all so the surah said, He called him he said you are rubbish, not deaf Don't shout.
Called on Allah subhanaw taala softly with dignity. So it's okay listen, I was doing that neither and Coffea quiet voice. He is standing in his mirror. He is praying to Allah subhanaw taala right. And he's calling to Allah monitor and a soft voice. And then what does he say? First and foremost, he describes his own helplessness, his own his own. You know need he says Oh Allah, my bones have become weak. My head is my hair is all white. I have reached extreme old age
and that he is
box's connection with Allah subhanaw taala he and I will do we are going to stay in the beauty of souls Avada this is what we are doing. We are invoking connection with Allah Allah worship only you I don't make sure all I ask help only from you. I don't ask from anybody else. So he is the very salami saying to Allah subhanaw taala Yara you have never rejected my DUA
and then is asking Allah Dawa is asking Allah subhanho wa Taala he's asking Allah subhanaw taala and keeping with his majesty and grace.
He's saying Allah give me an air. Give me somebody to inherit me.
He mentioned himself you mentioned his wife. He said, I am so weak I am old I am. My hair is white by bows are weak. My wife has reached his way beyond childbearing. She's balanced, she cannot, she cannot have children.
But he says, give me a child. He does not say give me a second wife give me a younger wife. No.
Because he is he is his perspective is Allah subhanaw taala is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, what is so difficult for Allah to give me a child if he wants to commit
to my job is not to teach allah how to do it. My job is to just beg Allah subhanaw taala and persuade him to give how he gives us up to him. So this is how he's asking one. So therefore first in first thing I want you to understand, and I remind myself when us let us learn how to make God when we make dua keep our focus on the greatness and glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa taala. Don't bring your own thoughts and constraints and you know, this is what so and so said has also said no, you are asking Allah Subhana Allah geladeira
treasures have no boundaries, Allah's power has no bounds has no boundaries, treasures have no boundaries.
What Allah can do, has no boundaries, Allah can order anything you want, they can do anything you want, he can he can he can.
He can, you know make,
he can sort of
think we think meaning violence rather there's no thinking and making so whatever Allah wishes will happen.
There's no boundary whatsoever of any kind.
So when we make do let us think about this, keep this in mind. Second thing is
approach Allah subhanaw taala like a slave,
as easy as that Allah say, Misaki
commands any disease Minister Maliki Allah Allah say, Bill cool, just say faqeer Manta who says Yokohama lives and again don't forget about the medallion big idea with Allah subhanaw taala we are vokra we are we are Misaki and we are people who are who are beggars who are in in desperate need.
Show that to Allah subhanaw taala
ask Allah subhanaw taala like a beggar because we are beggars. There's no There's no acting that
we are dependent on Allah subhanaw taala for every breath we take.
So as far as far as I like that,
begging for his mercy,
in that process, put forward your difficulties and then ask Allah for what you want with your sight on his glory and majesty.
That knows about that. It tells us the story of Zakaria, salaam, how when Allah accepted his dua, he still had some thought in his mind. Right? So he asked Allah for a sight. Now that's not something that we need to do. But this is just want us to understand that the MDR label Salam were also humans.
And that is to show it really brings us and it should make us you know, respect them even more, because here are people who are not me, they were special in the sense of the role that Allah gave them and they're just on the level with Allah subhanaw taala. But they were not Superman.
Right, they hurt and they got sick and they and they bled and the needed food, they felt hungry, thirsty.
All of this.
So very important for us to keep these things in mind when we ask Allah subhanaw taala.
Now Allah is right, that then talks about the early salah, and his blessed name. And he was told Koziol kita by Bill Coover holdfast the kita now your early Salam is young and is going to be the number one is right will become very corrupt. And so he has to be strong or he would be swept away in the ocean of corruption at that time. This was the tail end of
The, of the of the Roman Empire and the bunnies, right we're subject of the subject of the Romans. The same issue applies to us today in a time when we live in a world that is devoted to the shaitaan
completely and totally materialistic, all the focus is only on the body.
The beautification of the body, the feeding of the body, the satisfying the base urges of the body, be a very bovine kind of mentality.
The spiritual aspect of human being is completely ignored, as if it doesn't exist.
And even when we suffer from ailments, which are non physical in nature, for example, the absolute epidemic of mental illness of different kinds.
we seek cures for that and we seek to combat it. Again with material means.
The illness is spiritual in nature.
But we want to cure that illness be with material means, how is this going to work Tell me.
When the soul is starving,
there is desolation in the heart. The heart is dark, and empty and cold.
And you think swallowing a Prozac will help you.
This is the problem. That's why the suicide rate is so high.
What's the four of the soul is not music, soul food, that's not music. The fall of the soul is that out of the Quran, the food of the soul is ziggu of Allah subhanaw taala
the food of the soul is standing in the right and crying before Allah subhanho loci so Julian's in Santa Ana and Rocco.
My brother and sisters, let us understand this yalla salaam lived a life of struggle, and he died a shade because eventually the one is right. They killed him.
He was kind and he was sympathetic. And this helps us to also understand the strength does not mean being arrogant and hard and insensitive and without mercy.
Hired Izella was none of those things. He was very kind. He was very soft. But he was also very strong and powerful.
This beautiful story, as soon as I said I'm used to hug his grandchildren
and he would kiss them.
A man came to him.
Once there was people sitting there when as soon as mom got information, got news that his son
his a was a baby infant had died.
fell from the blessed eyes of the ravioli, Salah.
And there was a man sitting there with him and he said that jasola You are crying?
Yes. I just got news and my son, my infant son died.
He said, Yeah, so I have what, eight, nine children or something he had, you know.
He said, I've never cried about any of them. And I've never hugged and kissed any of them. As soon as I said that devalaya made your heart heart what can I do? He said, tears are a sign of the softness of the heart.
And he said hugging and kissing. This is your children or grandchildren. This is something which is the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala this this shows the mercy in the heart of the person.
Yeah, Islam was a serious person.
And we have to understand that we were not created to become Joker's in this world. You were not created to play.
We were created to live a purposeful life, which is full of meaning and contribution to all those who are around us.
Allah subhanaw taala
blessed your Haley's Salam, and he promised him peace and Salama
at the time of the three transitions of our lives.
The time of birth, the time of death and the time of resurrection.
Yes, that was a NaVi
Hades also salah, where Allah subhanaw taala commanded Yaya even Zakaria with five commandments to perform himself as well as to command the monies right
now, it seems that he delayed in conveying the message to Allah
To easily salon, you convey them or he must convey them. So he said, he said I went to him. And he said, he said I was like a younger brother to him.
Because he was very well he said, I'm Sam and Korea and surrounds San Jose, a hair salon. So he said it's Elementary. When he said to me, Allah gave you five commandments. Either you convey them, or let me do it.
Al Islam said, Yeah, Rula he said, Oh, the Spirit from Allah. I'm afraid that if you convey them, Allah will punish me or the earth will swallow me. So he went forth to convey the message. Then he gathered the money, Israeli laksa until the budget was full. And then he sat in I place and he praised Allah. And he said, Allah subhanaw taala has commanded me to perform five things and you should also perform them. One, worship only Allah geladeira when nobody else
because machinic is like a slave who works for some, but somebody has not for his own master. So first is worship only Allah and nobody else to. He said, I command you to pray. And when you start to pray, don't turn away, because Allah is facing you. And if you turn your face away, Allah will turn his face away. Stand there, don't look here, and then don't turn your face. Number three, I want you to fast. That is like someone walking with a sack of musk, which everyone is able to smell. The smell of the fasting person's mouth is better with Allah than the smell of musk. And number four, he said I command you to give charity. And this is like a man who is captured by the enemy and
his hands are tied to his neck. They are taking him for execution. And at that time, he bargains with them, and eventually gives so much that the releasing sadhaka frees us from the Hellfire
charity frees us from the hellfire. Number five he said, I command you to make vicar of Allah. That is like a man pursued by the enemy who enters a very strong and safe Castle, which he enters and shuts the door and is if you are similarly protected from shaitan. When you make the case
then as well as as Rob said to the Sahaba I have five commands for you.
He said Be with the GEMA be with the OMA which is on the truth.
The Java is not necessarily the majority. Sometimes the majority can be wrong. You should be with them who are on the truth and what is the truth the truth is what was brought what he was on. Number two, he said you listen and you obey to the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala three, he said you make hijra, and that order of course has now been so after Fatah Maka, and then he said you make jihad to fight in the path of Allah subhanaw taala to establish justice on the face of the earth.
Whoever leaves the Muslim community, by a span of a hand has removed Islam from his neck until he returns.
And whoever raises the banners and slogans of all Janelia which is nationalism and tribalism, then he will be in the hellfire.
And that's why I also call people by their name, which is almost liminal meaning about Allah,
our identity as Muslims, not tribe or caste or race or nationality or family.
This is very important for us to remember this because this is one of the biggest
cancers of the Muslim society, which is our divisions and all of these divisions are based on ethnicity or color or nationality.
Islam has made all of these haram
Brotherhood is a brotherhood of faith.
Allah America does it in the Moto moto Wahida why not? Why not? Bukom fabuleux Allah said Verily this OMA of yours is one OMA and I am your rub so worship Me, and in other places it in Halle uma Takuma matawa, one Arabica the whole he said this OMA of yours is one OMA and I'm your rub. So have my Taqwa.
Seek to please me have my pleasure as the single criterion for your decision making.
Inshallah, we will
look at the case of Meraki let me start, let me initiate it here. We'll come back to this the next class also. Allah subhanaw taala has airways ca
The Milan eco to Yama Yama in Allah has the funky water hierarchy was Tofurky island he said he I mean yeah Maria Moroccan Otilia Biggie was Judy work Aymara Rocky. And remember when the angel said oh Maria and A salaam, Verily Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you and purified you from from polytheism it is really well chosen you above the women of the mean of all the women of her lifetime. Oh Maria, submit yourself with obedience to your rub jello, jello, and make such that and Ruko along with the unlucky one, people who are worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.
So Allah subhanaw taala here is ordering Maria Mala salaam to join in the Salah to Gemma and pray.
Today sometime we feel how can we allow women to pray and whatnot. This is they're all things that we have
brought by our own desires into Islam. These were not part of Islam. In fact, Russell was
not to stop the women from worshipping in the masjid.
We said do not stop the female slaves of Allah be amatola from worshipping in the masjid.
Today we have our own theories behind this. Please do not try to change the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who say well you know times have changed effectively you are saying that Allah when Allah subhanaw taala made this law we could because this is what also does or salaam told us. And whatever he told us is something which
was revealed to him. So Allah Swatara revealed to him to tell us this. So if you say that times have changed,
effectively you are saying that Allah did not know that this would happen.
And now that this has happened, therefore I am now big I am now making myself the lawmaker. And Allah made a law but I'm changing it.
If you said times have changed, believe me, the whole of Islam will be will be lost. Because then with this times have changed argument. People who want to change this Deen they will use that argument to make everything which was haram into holla.
Right, they will see they will use the Times of Change argument for everything. So don't fall into this trap. Don't say times have changed times have not changed. It doesn't matter times of change. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one to him for whom time has no meaning because he's the creator of tracks. So if Allah made a rule,
and if Allah says this is the rule for you till the end of time, that's how it is.
Nobody has any authority to change a raw or divine law.
At any time in the history of mankind,
going forward on the order in the past which from anywhere.
Nobody has any authority,
any divine law, what is the what's our definition of Divine Law is something which Allah subhanaw taala decreed, which is something which came in the Quran or which is a direct order of service of Salah,
the dualistic part of the Sharia, which is from Israel chaos, which is from where the scholars have debated as scholars have come to agreements, on some things, where the scholars have a consensus opinion on something, those things may be able to or may be possible to or there may be a need to change those from time to time because these are manmade things that are hamdulillah depend remove, remember that in our case, even the manmade things are still subject to the divine law of Allah subhanaw taala. So the man has based law which is the juristic part of the Sharia, is still within the framework of the divine part of the Sharia. Nobody in the world has any authority to change or
through is buying chaos which is through deductive reasoning and through consensus decision making, nobody has the right or the authority to change anything in the
chain anything in a way which falls outside the divine decree.
Anything which is agreed upon in the Sharia by scholars still has to be within the framework of the
Quran and Sunnah.
That is the present way in which our deen mashallah hamdulillah has been preserved. Please understand our role sister that Islam is divine. It is a deen that Allah chose for us.
Allah said Allah
Call to law calm ginagawa Guam to allevo navety what are the two lako Marisela Medina? Allah said I have today I have completed my blessing I have completed my
blessing on you and my completed your deen and I have chosen Islam as the deen for you.
So Allah has chosen Allah has completed nothing is left for us to complete or to change.
This is what we are learning from these lessons Shall we ask Allah to enable us to practice what we learn and to benefit from it was Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah who was a member of salam ala kono.
