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

In Al Hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah. But

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

we begin again after our break,

00:00:10--> 00:00:17

talking about the issue of Allah subhanho wa Taala free ordaining of risk. And I

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

mentioned to the ayat of surah Ron, where Allah subhanaw taala talks that he is informing us about his power, and showing us that he has the power to do things that are much more difficult than feeding us.

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

And this is to remind us that we get our sustenance and we get our risk by the will of Allah, Allah Allah Rhonda years okoma Yasha de vida, wherever he wishes

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

and that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need our help in order to feed us. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that he enlarges or restricts our risk and our sustenance and even in this we have no say

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

in Zoran Kabuto la de la jolla Soto riska Lima Yasha Minerva de vida Derulo in La hobbico Alicia in our last round, I said Allah enlarges the provision of whom He wills of his slaves, and straightens it or restricts it, for whom He wills and Verily Allah subhanho data, the coalition is knows everything is the all Knower of everything.

00:01:32--> 00:02:05

So very clear Ayah where Allah that is saying that Allah subhanaw taala enlarges or restricts. Allah does not say that he enlarges or restricts, depending on what we do, right? Our actions with regard to earning or our actions with regard to any material investment and so on, have no implication one way or the other. On the issue of risk and loss. rahaga enlarges or restricts our provision, as He wills

00:02:08--> 00:02:58

Sara mentioned and he said in Rebecca Yabba Soto raspberry mania, zero in who's gonna be arriba de hubiera masirah see how many ways in which Allah subhanaw taala talks about the fact that he is our agenda, and that he gives us risk? How many ways in which Allah subhanaw taala tells us this, because it is to give us as much comfort as possible for us to understand, because one of the things that, you know, might be in the minds of people is that yes, Allah Subhana Allah is the Raja, and so on, but you know, my condition and so on and so forth. I don't think any Muslim will say I'm not sure Allah knows that he won't say that. But at the same time, there is the issue of,

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

of knowledge of saying, you know, do you really know how much

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

difficulty that I'm in?

00:03:06--> 00:03:42

Right, and Allah subhanaw taala is clarifying that in such a beautiful way, he says, Truly, your rub enlarges the provision of whom He wills and restricts it, for whom He wills, Verily, He is ever all nor and all CEO of his slaves. And see again, beauty of the foreign the ban of the Quran, hobby ram basura Allah It was not it was enough to say a hobby that he knows, but there is a no there is a difference between knowledge of being informed and knowledge by seeing actually,

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

because

00:03:46--> 00:04:24

he said the cover is not like the minor, he said the information is not like the actual seeing of something, of observation of something. So, inflammation is not like observation, when you actually see something sometimes the you know, the the the level of understanding is much more. So Allah subhanaw taala is using both these words here hubiera masirah, Allah subhanaw taala is aware and Allah subhanaw taala also sees and again of course, I remind myself when you that whenever we do these translations, do understand that when we are saying Allah subhanaw taala sees, Allah does not see in the way we see.

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

the seeing of Allah subhanaw taala is totally and completely all encompassing in every way that seeing can be imagined. And then more because Allah subhanaw taala the way he sees or the way he knows, is not restricted by our imagination. Because when we say I when I if I say I see, obviously I see only what is before me, and even that I don't see it completely because what is far away I cannot see I can only see something which is at a certain distance. I can see to my sides to some extent I certainly cannot see behind my back

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

But when when we're talking about Allah subhanaw taala seeing, you're talking about seeing in every aspect that we can imagine or seeing, plus more in keeping with His Majesty and His grace, and that applies to all of such terms. When we make these translations,

00:05:15--> 00:05:42

then Allah subhanaw taala talks about his decreasing so he increases and decreases our amuro Juan de la jolla, Bo Soto rich Karima Yasha. Darrow in de la liga, la tilicho me umino Allah says in these there are signs for people who believe, do they not see that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills and restricts it, for whom He wills very early in that are indeed signs for a people who believe

00:05:44--> 00:06:29

that, as I told, you know, we must live a life of awareness. Don't live a life of heedlessness a life like animals without thinking without reflecting in this city itself. In our own lifetimes. We have seen, we have seen our own parents, when our parents are working, and they're working very hard, right? They're working very hard. And they in those days, the opportunities are limited. And so they had jobs and so on, so forth. And they struggled very hard. And they brought us up, and they gave us a good education and so on. And in the same lifetime of those parents. We also saw a situation where now the parents were retired. And when they were retired, their lifestyle was 100

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

times better than what it was when they were actually working.

00:06:36--> 00:06:51

Why because you got sons and you work, who are working abroad or who are here who are businesses, and Mashallah hamdullah they are dutiful sons. So therefore, what do they do? There's an NMR eval that cost a very valid cost a guardian ad driver with Kirby

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

air conditioning on camera, China, oh, yeah.

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

When they were working, they were they never saw any of those. But today, all of that and more

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

when they are not working

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

away,

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

if provision was linked

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

to you personally working,

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

then when you retire, what must happen to you.

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

But here, not only are you not dying, not only are you not starving, and not only are you not living on your savings, you're actually living a lifestyle which is far superior to what you had when you were actually working.

00:07:36--> 00:07:44

The enlarging of provision or the restricting of provision has to do with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone.

00:07:45--> 00:08:06

Nothing wrong with our work and so on. We'll see why we should still work. We'll talk we'll come to that inshallah, towards the end of this series of lectures. But as of now, this is the thing which is very important for us to keep in mind that Allah subhanaw taala enlarges the provision for whom He wills and restricts it for whom He wills and verily in that silence for people who believe,

00:08:07--> 00:08:11

then, said Colin narrow BIA was autores galima.

00:08:13--> 00:08:30

kin axon, sila alone, he said in Surah, Saba, say Omaha masala lava alayhi wa sallam, very my robe and larges and restricts provision to whom he pleases, but most people do not know.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

I after I after I

00:08:35--> 00:08:53

is saying the same thing, but Allah subhanaw taala and largest provision to whom he wishes and he restricts the provision of whom he wishes and in no idea has Allah subhanaw taala said that this depends on what you do or don't do. He did not say I need your help for this. So please get up in the morning and go to work nothing.

00:08:55--> 00:09:02

Nothing Allah gives as He wills analytics away as He wills and as I told you, should you still work?

00:09:03--> 00:09:10

Or should you give up working and just sit? Because Allah will give you we'll come to that inshallah we'll keep you on the string until that time.

00:09:13--> 00:09:48

Allah Rhonda talked about his rewards and golden era BIA was autores Kadima. Yasha mineva Oh, mama and factotum MinJae in for Who are you? Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, rockin. Allah is talking about those who spend in his path. And he says, say truly my rub enlarges the provision for whom He wills of his slaves and also restricts it for home restricts it for him, and whatsoever you spend on anything in Allah cause he will replace it and he is the best of providers.

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

Let's read that said he will replace it. So Allah god, this is so true. It is so true. Of course all of that is true, but some things we actually get to see in our

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

our own lives.

00:10:01--> 00:10:21

And we find that you know, you spend something somewhere and you get it back. You don't just get it back, you get it back in the way of Allah subhanaw taala Shan of Allah subhanaw taala you don't get to if you spend 10 bucks, Allah does not give you 10 bucks. You know, the famous story of Ravi bursary Rasul Allah, where somebody,

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

somebody came in the evening and brought something and said, so and so sent it for you. And she opened the packet and the packet had nine

00:10:33--> 00:10:37

bread pieces of bread nine, nine rotis, or nine loaves of bread or whatever.

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

So she wrapped it back and just give it back to Jesus take it back. This is not for me.

00:10:46--> 00:11:03

So the man went away, and then he came back. And he gave the packet and she opened it and she counted there were 10. So she said, this is for me. So the man said, Why did you send me back before he said, because I gave one loaf of bread in charity and Allah promised to give one is to $10 Why will I take nine I don't take nine.

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

And the man said Yes, that's true with my master actually gave 10 I took away one.

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

So

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

he put it back in.

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

He said he actually gifted

00:11:17--> 00:11:43

this man back when in the middle he took over on the way. So the the issue is people who people who recognize a lot, people who know Allah were connected with Allah, their ways are different their reactions and things are different. Allah subhanaw taala does not take Allah is Allah does not take from us. First of all, I cannot Allah subhanaw taala has no need to take from us because we and everything we have belongs to Allah anyway.

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

So the question of taking from us does not arise. It's the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah gives us the opportunity to spend something in his paths.

00:11:53--> 00:12:01

And on top of that allowed us to things He replaces it in this dunya and he gives a reward in the occur.

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

And the reward he gives in the ACA is

00:12:06--> 00:12:10

far, far superior far speed, but only replaces it in the Zuni also.

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

Even in the dunya Allah does not take it from us. And you know, we I have lost. That's why I always I always say I say I tell people I said I said don't, don't say sacrifice, say investment.

00:12:27--> 00:12:33

Right. So don't say sacrifice a investment. Because sacrifice ends. Investment continues.

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

Because only so much you can sacrifice beyond a point you cannot sacrifice anymore. But investment there is no end to what you can invest.

00:12:42--> 00:12:52

And that's what the Sahaba did. That's what they understood of the A man came to achieve the stories of the Sahaba A man came to me Salah sallam, he was

00:12:53--> 00:12:59

the he was the one of the tribals one of the Arabs. He came and joined in the abattoir.

00:13:01--> 00:13:07

And he fought and he fought very well. So at the end of that, because there was a lot of aneema.

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

socialism was distributing very much. So this man Cher was brought to me somebody brought his share, and whatever it was wealth, and gave it to the man. The man said, What is this? He said, this is your share of

00:13:21--> 00:13:32

the ocean disease and then the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam sent it. So the man took up all that, and he went to the Salah, Salah, and he put it there and he said, jasola What is this? So this is your chef.

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

He's an aerosol, I did not join you for this.

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

He said, I didn't join you for this. So then why did you join me? What What do you mean?

00:13:45--> 00:13:56

He said, I joined you saw that. I fight in the cause of Allah. And that an arrow hits me here. And he put his finger on his throat.

00:13:57--> 00:14:03

He said so that an arrow will hit me here. And I die in the path of Allah and Allah His vision.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

He said, I came and joined you for that not for this

00:14:08--> 00:14:13

sola Salam said, if you are sincere in what you are saying Allah will give you what you want.

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

And the robbery of the head it says that the next battle

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

the man was hit by an arrow exactly where he pointed

00:14:24--> 00:14:24

and he died.

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

So his body was brought to Nabi sallallahu wasallam.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

And as soon as they told him,

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

he said, Is this the same man? They said, Yes, jasola is the same man. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took off his shirt.

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

He took off his

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

hand he gave and he said bury him in my phone.

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

So they gave the coffin of the man for the job.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And the zombie says personally lifted

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

him and put him in the grave

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

himself.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

And then he led his salado janazah

00:15:08--> 00:15:18

he led his lack of janazah. Then he personally put him in the grave and the Scylla Salah Salaam then made and dissolve, he said it was a very long it was a very young boy.

00:15:19--> 00:15:27

He said, but the part in which I remember, he said is when Allah Sallam said, Oh Allah, this was your slave.

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

And he fought in your paths, and he fought well, and he died for you. And voila, I am the witness for that.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

Getting the man was was thinking sacrifice

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

or the thinking investments.

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

I have understood this day

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

nobody understood his Deen better than the Sahaba

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

does I have understood this did

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

we play games?

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

We play Gibbs cassava understood is the

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

venue the meaning of this day.

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

So Allah subhanaw taala gives and he enlarges the provision then he restricts the provision as he wishes. And we will see how the restriction of the provision is also

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

an AMA and Rama Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:41--> 00:16:50

And then Allah subhanaw taala replaces anything that we spend in his path, He replaces it many fold in this dunya itself.

00:16:51--> 00:17:06

And then He replaces it in the era in terms of the reward that he used for us inshallah, Allah subhanaw taala has the keys of the treasures of the heavens and the earth, because the treasures of the heavens and the earth belonged to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

analyst Allahumma kalido some our

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

colleagues

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

in hooby Kohli, Shane Lee,

00:17:24--> 00:17:45

Allah said to him, do Allah belong the keys of the heavens and the earth? He enlarges the provision for who He wills and he restricts and straightens it, for whom He wills, very, he is the all know of everything, very live equally. He knows everything. He knows what is where.

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

This is a sign of Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Allah.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

Allah hi mo so tourism call him a

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

coder in vi

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

t tilicho. me You may know Allah subhanaw taala Do they not know

00:18:08--> 00:18:18

that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straightens it and restricts it for whom He wills verily in this are Signs for the people who believe.

00:18:21--> 00:18:25

Again and again and again. How many I do we want

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

to prove? That it is Allah subhanaw taala gifts and Allah gives as he wants.

00:18:35--> 00:18:43

Allah gives us he wants to whom he wants as much as he wants. And therefore we ask Allah subhanaw taala for risk and halaal and Teva.

00:18:48--> 00:19:04

Now all of these ads are meant to comfort us that Allah Subhana Allah number one knows what we need. Number two has the power to give it to us. We are asked not to worry and stress ourselves but to ensure that we earn this sustenance in the right way.

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

I'm going to give you an example to illustrate this.

00:19:10--> 00:19:47

Imagine that you are standing before a very large store. Very, very large a huge warehouse. That imagine a huge warehouse. And this warehouse has a glass front. Transparent it says a complete front is the entire wall is glass. So you can see inside this warehouse and when you look inside the warehouse you see there are SUVs in it and there are cars in it and there are jewels. There's jewelry stores in it and imagine every conceivable thing that you can think about is in this warehouse.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

Right there are holidays in it and there are homes in it and everything

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

is warehouse and this huge warehouse with a glass front right now this

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

warehouse has two entrances

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

and the entrance on one end, and above that door is written halaal.

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

And there's another entrance on the other end and above that door.

00:20:13--> 00:20:21

Right now no matter which door you enter this warehouse through what is in the warehouse, does it change

00:20:22--> 00:20:30

what's in the warehouse in the warehouse, whether you enter through the doormat, halaal, or whether you enter through the doormat Haram, you're going to get the same thing.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

Now, imagine that I am standing before the door, which is Mark Haram.

00:20:38--> 00:20:49

And as we as we have seen in so many places, they have a photovoltaic cell is a sensor there. And if you stand before the door, the door opens automatically. Yes, as soon as you come in front of the door, the door opens.

00:20:50--> 00:21:01

So imagine that I am standing, I have just come up to the door, which is marked Haram. And the door has opened and I'm about to step inside

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

to take what I want.

00:21:06--> 00:21:12

And at that moment, you are standing on the other side of the warehouse and you call out to me and it's all

00:21:13--> 00:21:15

right, yes. What can I do for you?

00:21:16--> 00:21:23

They're telling me jack, don't enter through this door, come here and enter through this other door, which is called which is Mark halaal.

00:21:24--> 00:21:29

Right? Don't enter through the door that you are going in through, come here and enter through this door.

00:21:31--> 00:21:40

Right. So you're telling me it's the same store. It's the same things. Nothing is going to change. Don't enter from that door enter from this door.

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

So what do I tell you?

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

I tell you, you know what?

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

You're telling me enter through that door, but that door is closed.

00:21:52--> 00:22:05

The door is not open, the door is closed. So what are you telling me? What do you tell me? You tell me. You know what, please come here. And this door will also open just like the other one opens.

00:22:06--> 00:22:13

Just come here. And that door will also open just like this one open. So what do I tell you I say nananananana.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

First open the door then I will come

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

first open the door and I will come

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

if the door is closed, I won't come.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

Now what is the answer?

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

The door will not open unless I go standing.

00:22:32--> 00:22:52

The door will not open unless I go and stand there because the camera which opens the door has a retina scanner. image recognition software in it. When I stand before the door the camera recognizes my retina scan and it opens the door only for me.

00:22:57--> 00:23:06

So even if you weren't stand before the door and open the door, that door is opening for you. It's not opening for me I it will open for me only when I go and stand in front of that door.

00:23:08--> 00:23:26

It's easy to understand is given that we are all aware of retinal scanners and automatic door openers and whatnot. Just Just imagine this. This is the simplest way of explaining the issue of risk. And the issue of earning it in halaal ways and haram ways.

00:23:27--> 00:24:02

simplest way, one warehouse, which has the same things in it, then things in the warehouse don't change. It has two doors, one marked haram one marked halaal we have the choice to enter that warehouse from any one of these doors. The difference is that if you enter from the door marked haram and you take those things, then you get punished. And if you enter from the door called halaal and you take the same things, then not only do you not get punished, you also get rewarded.

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

So what do you say?

00:24:11--> 00:24:24

The morning we were in standing in front of a real material store and they say if you enter from this door you got to pay for that thing. And if you enter from that door not only will you give will we give you the same thing free but we'll also give you a bonus

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

how many people will choose to enter through this door and pay me I'm not even double punishment. I'm just about payment

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

and if someone insisted

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

they may be acid was our palate democra.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

senseless Well, why would you want to okay?

00:24:43--> 00:24:52

You're going to get it for free. Plus, he's going to give you a bonus also, right? So you don't want the bonus. You don't want the thing for free and you want to pay for that thing when you can get for free. You're mad. You're crazy.

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

I'm not even talking about punishment.

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

I'm not even talking about punishment.

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

The simplest way of explain of explaining, in my view the issue of risk.

00:25:08--> 00:25:21

And that's why the questions on the Day of Judgment, the headings that I mentioned to you at the beginning of the lecture today, the questions have to do with the quantity or the method, whichever

00:25:22--> 00:25:26

method I was not gonna ask you, how come you didn't make $1 million? No.

00:25:28--> 00:25:36

Allah will say, the money I gave you, the risk I gave you the knowledge I gave you. The wealth I gave you the power I gave you?

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

What whatever that was?

00:25:40--> 00:25:48

What was the way you chose to earn it? And what was the place you chose to spend it?

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

Allah will not ask you, how much did you make?

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

How did you make and where did you spend?

00:25:56--> 00:26:06

Allah will not ask us how much knowledge did you earn? How much knowledge did you learn? Allah will ask the knowledge that I gave you. What did you do with that knowledge?

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

Did you practice it yourself? Did you teach it to other people? Did you do something good with his knowledge?

00:26:15--> 00:26:22

Allah will not ask you How long did you live? How come you didn't live to be 100? Why did you die at 50? milliliters his question? No.

00:26:23--> 00:26:28

Allah will ask the 50 years of lifespan I gave you What did you do in those 50 years?

00:26:29--> 00:26:33

Allah will not saying your youth How come you didn't look like Arnold Schwarzenegger?

00:26:35--> 00:26:43

Unless what I will say whatever you look like, whatever strength and so on and power and beauty and handsomeness and so forth you had in your youth?

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

What did you do with it?

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

Did you use this the strength that you had in your youth? That strength? Was it spent in standing in that youth before Allah subhanaw taala?

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

Or was that strength spent on the dance floor and a disco dancing all night?

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

Which one?

00:27:09--> 00:27:15

That strength and power in your youth? which Allah subhanaw taala gave you? Did you use it for to help somebody who needed help?

00:27:19--> 00:27:23

Or did you use it if you use that strength for doing something which is private?

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

Yes.

00:27:28--> 00:27:41

All the questions related to risk are not questions about the quantum, not questions about the quantity. There are questions about the quality of it.

00:27:42--> 00:27:46

How did we take it? What did we do with it?

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

And that's the reason why it's very important for us to keep these two things in mind.

00:27:53--> 00:28:09

Allah subhanaw taala again mentioned in Surah Rahman de Botton Villa de la la la Heras, whoa ha, Allah moussaka Ramos, toda colon, fi kita mubin. Allah, no moving, living creature

00:28:11--> 00:28:17

is there on Earth, but that its provision is from Allah,

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

every single thing,

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

every single thing, from the virus to the blue air.

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

All that we know and all that we don't know.

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

As long as it's a living thing.

00:28:33--> 00:28:40

As long as it's something which needs provision, that provision comes only and only from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:42--> 00:28:51

And Allah says that he is aware of where it lives, and of its deposit, Nova Syrian have

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

translated and deposit as

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

both the grave and the womb. So both of these have been given as translations of this. And all of this has been recorded. To be a fee gotta be moving in a clear book, which is a low whole muffles.

00:29:17--> 00:29:59

The thing therefore to remember is that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need our help to feed us. He does not need our help to give us this. He is not dependent on what we do, or what we do not do in order to feed us or to give us our risk in any way. He reminds us to look at his signs around us and understand the fact that everything happens by his will alone. Allah Subhana reminds us about the purpose of our creation and what is expected of us in this life. And what is that purpose? Allah Rama Kanako Jenna valenza illa Leah budokon Ma Ri Domaine home miroslava Duma you

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

Mone in a la ha who are Rosa Hulu wattle Mateen

00:30:07--> 00:30:07

Daria

00:30:08--> 00:30:12

three as well as Rhonda Allison and I mama

00:30:14--> 00:30:48

and I have created not the jinn and human beings except that they should worship me alone. The purpose of our creation is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no other purpose of our creation we have been created only and only for the worship of Allah. And as we have mentioned in the series on Aveda, and so on, which many of you have attended that worship refers to both Eva as well as a Buddha.

00:30:50--> 00:30:56

Worship as in Nevada, and worship as in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:57--> 00:31:15

to live this life, in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala is worshipped. And that is the reason why I don't know how many of you were there for that lecture which I gave which is where I said how can you turn your entire life 24 hours of the day into worship?

00:31:16--> 00:31:28

And that is by living those 24 hours of the day, according to the akam and orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala and according to the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:31:29--> 00:31:39

if we live our entire life, if I from a minute I wake up in the morning, the morning my eyes open, what do I do? I recite the kalama and I recite the DA

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

at the time of waking up. And then I thank Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah gave me another day

00:31:48--> 00:31:56

in order to please Him in order to try to worship Him as it is his right and then what do I do? I go Miko

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

and then I pray.

00:32:01--> 00:32:06

And then I read some Quran and I wait for Serato and then I come I pray go to the masjid.

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

And after I go home,

00:32:13--> 00:32:16

I stay in the masjid I do some more vigorous care and so on and I pray

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

or I go I do something else and I come back.

00:32:24--> 00:32:36

And then I have a breakfast right thank Allah subhanaw taala for giving me food. And before I eat, I make dry and as I eat I thank Allah subhanaw taala and after I finished my food, I make dragon all the doors of Allah

00:32:37--> 00:32:59

and then I have a bath and I when I have a bath I'm thinking of Allah subhanaw taala before the bath after the bath, when I put on my clothes, I thank Allah subhanaw taala that has given me the clothes to put on and I make dua and then I go to work. And on the way it was the kind of Allah subhanaw taala at my workplace, I'm engaged in work which is halal. I'm engaged in work which is gize

00:33:01--> 00:33:13

and during the whole work day, I am thinking of Allah subhanaw taala I'm remembering Allah subhanaw taala I'm doing all the transactions and deals in my job in my work according to the Sharia of Islam.

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

Yes.

00:33:17--> 00:33:30

And then of course there is the prayer times that come between in the during the day I respect those prayer times I stopped by work and I make my Salah I don't delay the Salah because I'm doing this so that I pray the Salah at its correct time.

00:33:32--> 00:33:39

And then I come back home in the evening and when I when I left my house in the morning I made when I come back home in the evening I make dua

00:33:41--> 00:34:06

and then when I come back home in the evening I am with my family and so on and I am good to them and I remind them about Allah subhanho wa Taala and we talk and we have fun and we play and so on and so forth and constantly there is remembrance and awareness of Allah subhanaw taala and the times of Salawat that come in between and I pray those a lot of the correct times and then I eat my dinner and I pray before the I make dog before the food I make go after the food I thank Allah subhanaw taala during my food

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

and then before I sleep I make gas car I read

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

and then I made my

00:34:18--> 00:34:53

motto and I go to sleep and when I'm sleeping also I sleep following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam I sleep on my right side my hand and my under my cheek and so on and then I go to sleep now you see how the whole day because now this part of sleep also is neither because you have your sleeping with that tsunami Salah Salem and you're sleeping with the intention of waking up for the hydrodynamic drag Allah please make me let me not let me not miss my so therefore even sleeping with that so the whole day and everything that we have done in the day has become

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

has become worship.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

from Allah to Jenna valenza ilaria boo

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

See this ayah because if Allah subhanaw taala had said to Jenna Valenzuela, Leah boo, and then Allah subhanaw taala had not sent an AVI and then if Allah subhanaw taala had not sent the Sharia, this ayah would be impossible to implement.

00:35:16--> 00:35:31

Because how can you worship Allah 24 hours of the day because you have to eat and you have to sleep and you have to you know, do various things and if you are in a state where you are not worshiping Allah, then you are going against the purpose for which you are created so that that becomes a problem.

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

And that's the reason why Allah Subhana Allah sent the Sharia of his Deen.

00:35:38--> 00:35:53

So that this is the purpose of our creation can be fulfilled. Allah created us only for his worship. And he showed us a way of life, where our entire life can become worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:35:55--> 00:36:01

condition is that we remain aware of Allah subhanaw taala throughout that time,

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

the anila How

00:36:07--> 00:36:14

does he not know that Allah subhanaw taala is watching as long as we have that consciousness, and we do everything in keeping with that.

00:36:15--> 00:36:20

And then to reinforce this further, in terms of risk, because

00:36:22--> 00:36:28

what is the first question somebody will ask? shala That's right, you are you created only for worship, but how do I?

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

How do I?

00:36:32--> 00:36:33

How do I feed my family?

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

See the psychology of the Quran.

00:36:38--> 00:36:49

See the psychology of the Quran? Why must Allah subhanho wa Taala combine the ayat with regard to risk with the idea of a bad

00:36:51--> 00:36:54

Allah created us he knows what we are. He knows how we think.

00:36:56--> 00:37:10

Illa Allah We have great I've created the Jinan human beings only for my worship. Allah if you created only for worship, for your worship, and if I fulfill that purpose of creation, if I'm only worshiping you, then how do I it?

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

So two things Firstly, Allah subhanaw taala sent us the Sharia.

00:37:18--> 00:37:21

So, while we work, that work also becomes worship.

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

And then the reassurance

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

Maria you mean whom?

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

Rama what do you do I use a mon

00:37:30--> 00:37:35

reinforcing now every domain home mill risk.

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

Allah subhanaw taala that was sufficient to say

00:37:40--> 00:37:44

I do not seek any provision from them. That is in a

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

mama

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

moon. Allah does it nor do I ask that they should feed me.

00:37:54--> 00:38:00

All my creatures who are your children? Your creatures are the creatures of Allah.

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

What's

00:38:09--> 00:38:12

up j Tonka? kamisato? I got one which

00:38:14--> 00:38:15

I like him a little bit.

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

Let him

00:38:19--> 00:38:30

worry about that. Which you will be questioned about Allah subhanaw taala will not ask you Did you feed your children he will ask you what did you feed your children with halal or haram?

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

He will ask you what did you what tarbiyah did you give your children? Did your children recognize me? Did your children know who I am?

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

Did your children were your children obedient to me because you told them and showed them how to be obedient to Allah.

00:38:51--> 00:38:55

Did your children recognize Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:38:57--> 00:39:01

did your children know anything about the Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam

00:39:02--> 00:39:16

Did you ever tell your children about the importance of following the Sunnah Mohamed Salah Salah when your children saw you did they see you following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam or did they see you disobeying and breaking the sun now?

00:39:17--> 00:39:32

Make no mistake. Make no mistake my brothers sisters, children listen with their eyes, not with their ears. They will not do what you tell them to do. They will do what they see you doing.

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

You can tell them to pray till the cows come home but they will not pray unless they see you praying.

00:39:41--> 00:39:53

You can tell them to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam but if they see you breaking the Sunnah of NaVi Salah Salem they will not follow the sooner sir and you will be responsible.

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

In one Hadees Nevis Allah is lm said he said the most unfortunate of parents

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

will be those who will see their own children being thrown into the Hellfire, and they will know that they are responsible for it

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

said the word the most unfortunate. The most unlucky of the parents will be those who will see their own children being thrown into the hellfire. And they will know that my child went into the Hellfire because of me.

00:40:27--> 00:40:40

Because I did not give him any tarbiyah I just fed him and clothed him. I treated my child like a goat or a dog or a horse. I worried about his physical fitness, I worried about his physical well being.

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

alone.

00:40:45--> 00:40:54

I did not worry about his spiritual well being. I did not worry about his moral and ethical well being. I did not introduce him to Allah. I did not introduce him to Allah.

00:40:56--> 00:41:03

When the child didn't wake up for Serato and there was some other idiotic elder in the house who said neighbor Chugga sonido

00:41:07--> 00:41:10

so what did you do? You let him slip?

00:46:11--> 00:46:13

you know, people who have connections that he

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

does have a difficult way of saying

00:46:23--> 00:46:24

well that he got them down.

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

He was to make the same dua

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the Quran

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

that the wife of Iran

00:47:06--> 00:47:09

but she said one like give me a house close to you

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

He was a slave who was faithful to you.

00:48:12--> 00:48:14

And there is no one who is more faithful than you

00:48:15--> 00:48:16

to those who are faithful to you.

00:48:17--> 00:48:20

And he was to ask you for a small x near you.

00:48:22--> 00:48:24

Well, I give him a small hut near you.

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

00:48:35--> 00:48:36

So Allah

00:48:38--> 00:48:47

and the desire before we complete for today, the last of those that Allah subhanaw taala said in Allah, who are rasa

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

secondary enforcement

00:49:03--> 00:49:04
