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

Hola Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MV mursaleen

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

Hamza Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi seldom at the Sleeman kathira mavado. My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent us his book

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

and about his book he said Lacan, Angela la competa urban Fie, the Kuru comb of Allah, Allah.

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

Allah subhanaw taala said,

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

Truly, and Verily, We are sent and revealed

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

to you a book in which you are mentioned

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

that of course, the mechanical diet of course, there are sublicense Allah

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

and he is mentioned.

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

And he's mentioned by name

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

Muhammad Rasul Allah.

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

But as I, as I, as I, as I tell you, and as you know,

00:01:06--> 00:01:10

the Kitab of Allah subhanaw taala came for all of us came for all of mankind.

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

The Book of Allah came for all of mankind.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

And

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

Allah has mentioned us in it

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

my brothers sisters,

00:01:31--> 00:01:36

though those people who reflect on the Quran

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

these were people who actually searched for themselves in the Quran and said, Where am I mentioned in the Quran?

00:01:45--> 00:01:52

That's what I'm inviting you to do. And I'm inviting myself to do which is to search for ourselves in the Quran.

00:01:54--> 00:02:06

Now, you know, and I know that Allah didn't mention you by name, or didn't mentioned me by name. So when you're saying search for us, search for yourself, I don't I don't mean you personally, as an individual human being what we mentioned.

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

Search for yourself means

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

in the context of the Quran.

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

Now, what do I mean by that?

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

What I mean is, in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned,

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

groups of people, kinds of people.

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

And he described their qualities.

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

And then Allah subhanaw, taala geladeira, who told us what happens to people with those qualities?

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

Now, that's the closing of the loop.

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

Allah mentioned a group of people, he described their qualities.

00:02:49--> 00:02:57

And then he said to us, what will happen to people have those qualities. So now, when I'm searching for myself in the Quran,

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

and I read the description of a certain group of people.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

And I read those qualities.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

And I look at myself, and I find those qualities in me.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

But then when I look at

00:03:17--> 00:03:23

the destination of those people, when I look at what Allah subhanaw taala said, will happen to those people.

00:03:24--> 00:03:39

And I find that that destination is not somewhere that I want to go, that ending that reward for people with those qualities, is not something that I want for myself,

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

then what must I do? I must ensure that I get myself out of that list of people,

00:03:48--> 00:03:54

I must make sure that I don't have those qualities and that I have changed myself.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

On the other hand, if I find

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

that I am

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

that when I look at the hora and I find another group of people,

00:04:10--> 00:04:13

about whom Allah subhanaw taala has again mentioned their qualities.

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

And then Allah subhanaw taala has said that these are good people. And these are people who's

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

who will be successful.

00:04:27--> 00:04:34

And then when I look at myself and compare myself and my qualities to the qualities described with the hora

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

then I can feel satisfied and I guess Alhamdulillah

00:04:40--> 00:04:53

I think I'm in the right place. Because Allah subhanaw taala described people with qualities that are similar to mine. And Allah said that they will be in a good place they will be in Jannah inshallah.

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

So searching for yourself in the Quran means this is to read the Quran.

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

With this

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

with this frame of reference and frame of mind to say

00:05:07--> 00:05:20

Where can I see my qualities in the Quran? And then what can I see that Allah is saying about people with those qualities?

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

Right?

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

As I told you, the Quran didn't just come to be recited without understanding,

00:05:32--> 00:05:46

to be debated about to be discussed, for people to write PhD thesis on it. No, the Quran came for one purpose only. And that purpose was an ease and continues to be

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

for people

00:05:50--> 00:05:58

to read it, to understand it, and to live their lives according to what Allah subhanaw taala has told him to do.

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

So let us see the qualities of some people that are described in the Quran.

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

Allah said in the in the opening Ayat of Surah Baqarah

00:06:13--> 00:06:19

Allah will emuna shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim.

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

wamena Sima yaku. When will he will be Leo Mila

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

meanie

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

you heard your Allah Allah Allah Vina Who am I

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

to coleauxv him Moreau.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

Casa de la

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

buena de mon Bhima aka no z boon.

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

Allah, Allah mentioned some people.

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

And Allah said that among the people, there are those

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

carlu what do they say nazima Hullo Amma Nabila de boville Yamuna.

00:07:08--> 00:07:14

They say we believe in Allah. And we believe in the Day of Judgment.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

And then Allah subhanaw taala says a very strange thing.

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

Allah says, Well, my home meaning lesser, but they are not Muslims, they are not.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

So I am searching for myself in the Quran.

00:07:30--> 00:07:51

And I come across desire. And the I said, among the people that are those who say that they believe in Allah, and they believe in the Day of Judgment. So ask myself, do I believe in Allah? Yes. Do I believe in the day of judgment? Yes. And then I go ahead, and what is Allah say? Allah saying, but they're not Muslim general? momineen

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

What do I do?

00:07:54--> 00:08:03

I just want Allah, I thought I was Muslim. I thought that to be a Muslim and to be a Mormon, you have to believe in Allah and you have to believe in the Day of Judgment.

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

But Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, even though they say that they are not moving, they are not Muslim.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

Now

00:08:22--> 00:08:30

what must I do? So I need some more. Allah is saying you have our levina Why am I have

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

to so?

00:08:35--> 00:08:44

Allah says they are trying to fool Allah. And they are trying to fool the believers. The woman in the real moment is

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

Allah but they don't fool anyone except themselves.

00:08:52--> 00:08:57

And why do they do that? fee over him Morrow. There is a disease in the heart

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

and did not promise to cure the disease. No.

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

Unless it was the home alohomora Allah will increase that disease.

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

And then Allah told us about the destination of those people.

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

And what is the destination? And last night I said,

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

well, omada buena de mercado de mon.

00:09:26--> 00:09:33

And that's it. For them there is a dreadful punishment, because they are liars. On account of the lies they used to tell

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

to now

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

I say I am a believer. I say that I believe in Allah and I believe in the Day of Judgment. And then now, I have seen hear about some people online saying even though they say this, they are not believers, that EMA is not accepted by loss manager. Who are they? They are liars. Why are they lying? Because they are

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

trying to fool Allah subhanho wa Taala and they are trying to fool us into trying to fool the believers.

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

What is the meaning of life?

00:10:09--> 00:10:18

The meaning of lying is to say you believe in Allah, but to act in a way that shows that you do not believe in Allah.

00:10:19--> 00:10:42

Lying is to say that you believe in Allah, but to live your life in a way that shows that you do not believe in Allah. Lying is to say that you believe in the day of judgment when you will be brought to account before Allah, but to live your life in a way which shows that you have no concern for the Day of Judgment, no fear of being brought before a loss of an altar.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

Lying is to stand on the member and talk about the vial of shabby Barak.

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

Later to Mr. schaben.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

To talk about the ad is related to that

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

and to stand on the member

00:11:02--> 00:11:11

and to give this ban and say Allah subhanho wa Taala salatu wa sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala forgives the maximum number of people on that night

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

except to

00:11:16--> 00:11:34

one who covered check. And the other one who who bears grudges, who has hatred for his brother in his heart. Allah forgives everybody except these two, the one who commits shirk and the one who bears a grudge for his brother in his art.

00:11:36--> 00:11:52

Who is saying this? Who is informing the public about this you because you are the Imam because you are an island because you are the hottie because you are a Maulana because you are unsure because you are 50 because you are full and invalid

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

100 molana so and so damaged mercato

00:12:00--> 00:12:07

you stand on the member and you narrate this Hadees and you tell people repent to Allah subhanho data

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

Alhamdulillah very nice, Masha Allah.

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

But when Allah Subhana Allah looks in your heart, what does he see?

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

He sees Schick what kind of ship the shark of your own knifes.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

eita Monica, Ella how Hawa

00:12:32--> 00:12:36

remind you and myself. How is not only Shabbat,

00:12:37--> 00:12:44

however, is not only based desires for sex or money or drinking or eating or whatever,

00:12:45--> 00:12:53

however, is any kind of desire, which is in court which is contrary to what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for us.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

I hate somebody

00:12:59--> 00:13:06

Allah said forgive your brother Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said forgive your brother 70 times

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

every day.

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

I know the Hadees

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

I read that is

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

but when it comes to forgiving my brother, what do I do? I do not forgive.

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

I bear a grudge. So when Allah subhanaw taala looks into my heart on this, Laila to NIF. So, this was Siobhan also me Bharat.

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

What does Allah See?

00:13:35--> 00:14:06

Allah sees this schilke which I haven't come, which I'm perpetrating and ship which I'm committing the shirk of joining myself. And my desire with the hug of Allah. And what does Allah See? Allah sees my balls, Allah sees the garage that I bear, Allah sees the hatred that I bear, because of which I pronounced duck fear on my brother, because of which I say so and so is not a Muslim. In the law, why?

00:14:08--> 00:14:16

I forgot the Hadees of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where he said that if one Muslim curses and other Muslim and calls him either

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

one of them is definitely

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

one of them is definitely a disbeliever one of them is definitely an apostate.

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

Because if you call your brother a coffee, if you call your brother a disbeliever, and he's not his believer, then you have pronounced stockfeed against yourself.

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

I didn't say this now he's awesome himself and you know.

00:14:43--> 00:14:48

So on the one hand, I am standing there as the hottie

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

as the molar as the

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

as the album, and I'm narrating I had these about the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and I'm saying I believe in

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

I believe in the Day of Judgment, I am in need of forgiveness.

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

And then I describe the two conditions based on which Allah does not forgive.

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

And what are they shirk, and both

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

joining partners with Allah

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

and bearing grudges against our brothers.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

And I find both of those are in my heart

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

and I say I need forgiveness.

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

How will you get forgiveness?

00:15:37--> 00:15:46

You just describe the conditions on which Allah does not forgive. Both those conditions are in your heart. How will you get forgiveness?

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

How will you get forgiveness?

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

So it is better for you to go sleep at home.

00:15:55--> 00:16:01

What are you doing? You are making your own tongue Oh witness against yourself.

00:16:02--> 00:16:21

You are making your eyes and ears witnesses against yourselves on a day about which he said jelajah Allahu Allah Yamanaka, Timo Allah of wa him were to go live on IE Mata shadow or julho Bhima can work Cebu, Allah said on that day,

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

Allah will put a lock on their tongues.

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

These lying cheating tongues will be locked up.

00:16:31--> 00:16:37

And the hand will speak and the eyes will speak and the years will speak and the skin will speak and the feet will speak.

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

The MA can we actually born about what we used to do?

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

What do we plan to answer Allah subhanaw taala?

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

Do we fit into that framework that Allah described of those people who say they are Muslims, but who are liars.

00:17:02--> 00:17:10

And they are saying that to fool Allah subhanho wa Taala agenda Delano. Now we live in Derek and we're trying to fool the believers and the Muslims

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

by pretending to be pious by pretending to be with a cane.

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

But their hearts are filled with hatred for the brothers. They know what they should do, which is they should go and sit with those brothers and talk to those brothers and try to convince those brothers or be convinced themselves and if that still does not work, then they know that they should still forgive those brothers and seek forgiveness for those brothers from Allah subhanaw taala they know they should not stand on public platforms and malign them they know they should not send pamphlets out print pamphlets and spread of religion they know they should not speak and lambaste them and malign them and and slander them in public.

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

Yet to do it

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

and those who support those who do that

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

by funding them.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

Believe me on the Day of Judgment you are going to stand before

00:18:12--> 00:18:29

you are going to stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will have to answer for every word of takfiri that you pronounced. You will be held accountable for calling your Muslim Brothers kuffaar and Bertha Bertha the mole head and the hobby.

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

Can't

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

keep on doing it. No problem. No problem.

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

I asked my Rob jelajah Lalu for justice.

00:18:45--> 00:18:57

asked my Rob jela gelato. He knows what is in my heart. He knows I'm not hobby. He knows I'm not Morford. He knows I'm not Motorhead he knows I'm not a castle.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

Now when I say I don't mean only me, I mean all those who have been slandering

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

fear Allah has anger,

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

fear Allah punishment.

00:19:14--> 00:19:24

This is the meaning of searching for yourself in the Koran. And then what must you do? Maybe you did all of this and more. But now Alhamdulillah you reflected on this

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

because Allah subhanaw taala stopped us mid flight.

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

reflected on the on all this.

00:19:36--> 00:19:51

What must you do? Allah Mandara Bella Allah Allah, Allah Tony Juan Abu guarana, de Beauvoir, the master Taotao, the becoming Shalimar Surat Abu Dhabi Avantika Babu wisdom diva fairly find a hula furusato by land.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

All I am your slave You created me.

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

All I use sustain me and I owe everything to you.

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

All I have accepted your covenant and I will try to fulfill it to the best of my ability. Allah forgive me my transgressions. Forgive me what I forget, forgive me what I do wrong, because there is nobody who forgives except you.

00:20:14--> 00:20:41

And then what do I do? And then I go to the person who I have been slandering who I've been slandering, I go to that person physically or I pick up the phone, or I type an email or I send a message or hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has completed the project against us. He has given us multiple ways of communication. We cannot say I don't know where the person is. I can't contact him. No, no, no, no, no.

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

record a video of your Toba and put it on the net.

00:20:49--> 00:21:03

Go to that person, make amends, apologize and say I'm extremely sorry, please forgive me. Whether he forgives you or not. If he does not forgive you, then then that responsibility is on his head. You have discharged your responsibility.

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

Go and seek forgiveness.

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

Because remember Allah.

00:21:10--> 00:21:19

Allah does not forgive until the slave forgives. Allah does not forgive the slave until the one he wronged forgives him first.

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

So go and seek forgiveness. Apologize and tell them I'm extremely sorry I've been doing this no matter how many years you've been doing that.

00:21:32--> 00:21:39

If you are one of those whose helping and supporting those who are spreading evil in the land, stop doing it.

00:21:41--> 00:21:52

Make Toba make is too far. Allah did not give you money to spend in Haram. It is haram to support every action which is wrong in Islam.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

All of these kinds of actions which spread hatred, which spread

00:22:00--> 00:22:09

violence actions which spread all kinds of negativity in the environment are Haram in Islam, and if you have been supporting them, stop supporting them.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

Make Toba make is to

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

go and give charity and seek Allah subhanaw taala as forgiveness

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

This is the meaning of searching for yourself in the Quran.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

If you find yourself in a place

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

where the ending is bad

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

what is the end?

00:22:35--> 00:22:46

Bala Houma de buena de mon de maka No. Zeebo. For them, there is a dreadful punishment because they are liars because of the lies that they used to tell.

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

My brothers sisters, please understand,

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

telling lies, slandering backbiting,

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

trying to attack people's honor and dignity.

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

This is worse than murder.

00:23:06--> 00:23:13

I'll fit in a to a Chanel Cottle. Allison the witness is worse than the cotton. All of these are fitna.

I understand. Yes. Sometimes we fall into these things. We don't we even though we know I don't say we don't know. We know we know very well.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

we bought into the deception of shatta

00:23:34--> 00:23:42
