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

Well hello, haven hamdulillah Mira alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah MBA. Well mostly Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah highly when he was a new seller doesn't even Kaziranga zerafa model. My brothers and sisters, they are going to applause almost of

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

this series of

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

lectures and classes on reflecting on the Horan.

00:00:28--> 00:00:35

And I remind myself when you then the keytab of Allah, the Book of Allah did not simply come for us to

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

read it, or for us to debate about it or for us to

00:00:42--> 00:01:09

analyze it in terms of his grammar, and this and that, it came the purpose of it, all of these things hamdulillah we shouldn't, we should read we should read correctly, we should. The miracle of the Quran is there for us to look at and to marvel at. But the purpose of the coming of the Koran The purpose of the nozel of the color of Allah subhanaw taala is only one which is that it should be followed

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

and the commands of Allah subhanaw taala should be obeyed and that we should

00:01:18--> 00:01:31

submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala in joyful and in loving submission, not as not in reluctant submission, not in resentful submission.

00:01:32--> 00:01:40

Not in in the way that the money is Ryle submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

raised a mountain on top of them and threatened to crush them with it. We don't we do not submit Allah subhanho Zara because of

00:01:54--> 00:02:05

because of fear with a metros Ryota because of two things one is Kashmir in our hearts, which is the name for a feeling of

00:02:06--> 00:02:28

all and majesty of Allah and combined with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala which are hungry Allah in our case supersedes the love of anyone and anything else. This is the state of the believer This is the state of the moment and ask Allah subhanho data for this state for all of us and myself.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

My brothers and sisters The way to do that

00:02:34--> 00:02:41

the way to submit Allah subhanaw taala in a state of joyful and loving submission

00:02:42--> 00:02:51

is to follow the Sunnah of our master of our of the Messenger of Allah. Allah Allah

00:02:53--> 00:03:11

mudra via a manual ambia say there was a need, Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah highly highly he was a new seller, and that is to follow his son. The This is what makes Islam so beautiful and so simple.

00:03:12--> 00:03:18

There is no complication in it, there is no there is not even a need for anyone

00:03:19--> 00:04:10

to be learned or anyone to you know, attend school or university or something in order to follow Islam Islam is followable by anybody in any place in any situation. And and what makes it so simple is that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah highly valued service Allah as a living guide of what is to be done. The most important thing that I remind myself and I request to remind yourself is that all of these, the sum total of Islam, the sum, total of all the laws and rules and regulations and whatnot of Islam, are for our benefit. Allah subhanho data, nothing benefits Allah, nothing harms Allah subhanaw taala data, and therefore when we

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

follow Islam,

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

this is what we would do anyway.

00:04:19--> 00:04:26

In order to live a beautiful, harmonious, successful, influential life in this world,

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

even if you are not Muslim,

00:04:30--> 00:04:55

if somebody said to me, show me away, because I do, I'm a life coach as well. So if somebody says to me, and when they say to me, show me a way in which I can be highly successful in this life, as well as be influential, as well as be popular, loved by people. What is the way I will tell them and I do tell them

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

the Islamic way of living life

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

So now

00:05:02--> 00:05:17

even if they're not Muslim if they follow the Sunnah of revision was Allah, if they walked like a walk, if they talk like he talked if they deal with people the way he dealt with people, if they deal with their families, the way he dealt with, with his families, if they do business like he used to do business,

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

if they are an authority, if they use their authority, the way he used us authority,

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

all of these and more if they just simply do that,

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

then they will benefit and they will

00:05:36--> 00:05:42

become highly influential and highly popular, and they will become highly successful in this life.

00:05:44--> 00:05:57

For the believers for the woman in for us insha Allah, there is an added benefit, a bigger and far bigger bonus and that is the reward for Allah subhanho wa Taala in the UK.

00:05:58--> 00:06:06

This is for the believers because we follow the sun that not only because we want to be successful in this world, but because we want to please Allah Subhana Allah

00:06:08--> 00:06:15

our first motivation the Nia with which we follow the Sunnah of our Salah is what is to please Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:16--> 00:06:21

It so happens that This also makes us successful in this world.

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

In India, there is a company called Tata Steel

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

and this company in their

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

in their advertisements and in their promotions

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

of

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

their CSR work.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

They used to have an ad

00:06:41--> 00:07:32

which spoke about their CSR work which they wish they did you know this village they are dug wells and that village they help people in agriculture and some other place they they did this or that their social work and the tagline the bottom there was a line would come on the screen you would see it and we also make steel and we also make steel. This is a steel manufacturing company that is their core business. But the way they choose to portray is portrayed is that we are actually in the business of helping people we also happen to make steel. Now, I'm not talking about deceptive advertising. I am talking here about the reality of the Muslim which is that we live our lives and

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

we should live our lives in order to please Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:36--> 00:07:51

which also makes us successful in this world. You're not fooling anybody we just say that the reason why we live this is not to say that you know the it's mutually exclusive because it is not the reason why we do something is because we want to be the last of America

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

not for anything else. It's so happens that when you live your life to please Allah jealous

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

and you follow the and thereby when when I say that, it means that you follow the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that automatically you also become successful automatically you also become influential automatically you also become popular

00:08:14--> 00:08:25

automatically or you also become somebody who everybody loves and honors and respects this happens by itself not because that is the reason you are doing that.

00:08:27--> 00:08:41

You know if you see for example, I mean sometimes in India we see this on a railway platform, obviously in India huge crowds and if you go to a platform a lot of people really are up but if there is a group of

00:08:42--> 00:08:58

six, you know four or five, six, and if they are dressed like six I mean nowadays even the six you know many of them don't, don't bear they don't wear their traditional clothes but if they are dressed like six meaning that they have troubles, they have big beards

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

that they stand out, it looks as if they are the only people on the on the on the platform.

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

Now, the fact that they look so impressive

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

if you ask them why you dressed like that, what would what will a practicing secretary will say because this is how Guru Nanak told us to dress This is our This is our traditional religious dress.

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

Now he's not dressing that way to impress people, but people are impressed.

00:09:23--> 00:09:35

Now giving examples to show the beauty of the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam, which if you follow my last rant, Allah grant has the good sense to follow this beautiful method which Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

gifted us with

00:09:40--> 00:09:54

when we do that, we automatically benefit. We are not doing it for that reason. The other reason I'm saying that because if somebody is doing it, for that reason, then you will lose out on the actual reward for Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Right, but if you understand this and say with all our actions, we do them only for

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

And that is to please Allah subhanaw taala Why do you fast? Because Allah said so why do you pray because Allah said so if somebody says I'm fasting because 30 days of fasting will detoxify my body and it will you know, clean my blood and it will reduce my cholesterol and whatnot then this fasting is not law that this is not this is not a

00:10:22--> 00:10:34

lesson Excuse me. This is not any rather This is he's doing it for his own health reasons. The Beilock happens only when the AMA is done with the near a pleasing and last round

00:10:35--> 00:10:54

beneath. So therefore, the Muslim follows the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallam he he or she is the Nia is the engineers to please Allah subhanho data and therefore the person gets a huge bonus and reward also in the akhira. But in this dunya it also makes him successful.

00:10:55--> 00:11:00

And that's the fringe benefit as far as Muslims are concerned. Now.

00:11:01--> 00:11:09

So therefore I strongly to the highest possible extent, I advise you

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

to

00:11:12--> 00:11:19

reject all that reject all innovations. And to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:11:20--> 00:11:45

To the best of our ability, in that there is higher for us. Now remember, we asked Allah subhanaw taala for this in the Salah when we said he handed us a rotten mustafi this is what we were asking for, or like guide me to the path of righteousness and who is on the path of righteousness guides us through the path of righteousness, the path of those who rewarded

00:11:47--> 00:12:30

and who are those, the Gambia this will defeat the Shahada Salah hain and in the Gambia the best of them is their is their leader. Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, about whom Allah subhanho wa Taala said he has seen well qurani like even Nika lemina Hellmuth Selena Allah said after mustafi Allah see rocky moussaka Turkey, Allah subhanaw taala said very clearly you are on the path of righteousness. So when we say Idina serata was the creme, we are asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to put us on the path, which on which Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was. So then how can we reject what we asked for in Salah?

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

Now it's a completely ridiculous thing we cannot

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

be asking for something. And then when when Allah gives it to us, we reject it.

00:12:43--> 00:12:57

So let us make Toba. Let us make this the far end let us make Toba and turn towards the last martela and change our ways. Lest we are held among those who said one thing and did something else.

00:12:59--> 00:13:42

That is a very serious thing. People who angered Allah subhanaw taala to the extent where he refused to forgive them, even if it also was our Salah made dua for them who were the these were the Morocco. Now I'm not saying you will become a monastic if you do not follow the Sunnah of his asylum, but deliver definitely deliberately if you and I break the sun now if you are and I refuse to follow the sun that if you and I choose a way other than the way of also as a seller, then we are playing with fire quite literally we are playing with fire. So let us not do that. May Allah protect us from following the path of shatter which leads to the hellfire. We come to the

00:13:44--> 00:13:55

the last night of the party as I mentioned before, Sarah Levine and I'm Tyler him available to be eligible adore lead. Allah said see the thing just think about this that

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

the dua for guidance effectively is over with hidden Serato mystery or like guidance to the bottom right justice. Now, there are other levina Ram taleem is really further clarifying and reiterating what we asked for Serato Misaki

00:14:15--> 00:14:21

what it is and what it is not. The first word is Serato stocky,

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

sirata levina Ram tally, right.

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

Consider this, when you want to

00:14:33--> 00:14:37

show somebody the way to someplace

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

and you want to be doubly sure that the person will not make a mistake. You say, go this way, not that way. But simply saying go this way was sufficient, but you want to make doubly sure so you add not that way. And that is what Allah subhanaw taala taught us to ask for the way of those who raised

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

received his blessings and earned his pleasure and not the way of those who incurred his anger and those who fell into misguidance. Now truly the Quran is a book in which there is no doubt a book which is completely clear for those whose hearts are pure

00:15:18--> 00:15:24

and in whose hearts there is no disease of hypocrisy and that is the importance therefore of us gets on us

00:15:26--> 00:15:42

even before we upload the Quran, because if the place where this Koran is going to be placed or where it is going to reside, which is our heart, if that place is unclean if that place is filthy, if that if that mirror, which reflects the neuron was Rotella is covered

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

with the land of the dounia

00:15:47--> 00:16:27

with the shell with the with the with the curtain, which blinds it, of this dunya then how can it receive the jelly of Allah Subhana Allah because Allah subhanaw taala can do whatever he likes, but the the the whole issue of the receptor, being healthy and being capable of receiving what is transmitted, this is what I'm trying to emphasize here. So therefore the Quran is a book in which there is no doubt there's no doubt about this radical key tabula rasa fi hudl macduffie. Allah did not say well the Liberace

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

Allah did not say Allah said

00:16:31--> 00:16:59

it it's a bit basically being a mustafi is a precondition to getting a dice from the corner. So who is somebody who's concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala that is not necessarily an alley or something. Right? Anybody can be a bit cocky. and wonder if they can be someone who really is within in the in the dunya terms is illiterate, right? Somebody may be a farmer in a village, he was tilling the land and so on, he cannot even read and write.

00:17:01--> 00:17:24

There are these beautiful stories which are told, of course Allah knows if these stories are true, they can certainly be true. There's no doubt about that. But if you tell me specifically what is this guy, what is his name, which really I cannot tell you about even I don't know. But there's a lovely story which says that this man, there was this man who is he was a farmer, he's illiterate farmer, you know, he's to till the soil and so on and work for wages

00:17:25--> 00:17:32

and he died. So, when he died, people noticed that there was this beautiful aroma

00:17:33--> 00:17:43

you know, around his body and then when they put him in the grave and all the signs of the of Fatima will hide these were these were there.

00:17:45--> 00:18:10

So, one of the, so happened that there was an alum, who was in this in this village or he came there or something, and he recognized the signs. So he knew he knew that this person who died was was a special person. So he wanted to find out what is it this man who this man What did he do? What How is Allah subhanaw taala Allah showed so many kerrobert with regard to this man's death,

00:18:11--> 00:18:51

which inshallah these are Bashara and good news that this man inshallah will be in Jannah so he went to the family and he asked me said, Please tell me who's this man you know, what was he a great scholar? Was he somebody maybe have this for iron or something? So his wife said, for God's sake, I mean, this man he did not even know to rewrite your father use you know, isn't used to till the soil if there was no, no agriculture happening, he would work as a as a as a head Lord Cooley in a construction site or something. He didn't even know he couldn't even write his name. He used to put a thumb impression to get his wages. So this man, this alum was very surprised, then what do you do?

00:18:51--> 00:19:04

Is there any special family he did? And maybe some special was the vow or he used to pray all night in the hands or something? His wife said no, he did not do any of those things used to pray five times a day he was to pray. He knew enough to be able to pray.

00:19:05--> 00:19:46

You know, when he was that, that's like, we're always learning at home. We don't know what we are deciding what we decide. So anyway, so she said he was like that he did this, what he used to do, she said that every night when he came back from work used to have a bath. And then he would take the Koran, and he would open it. And he would run this finger on the line of the Quran he on the writing, he would run his finger from one end to the other, and he would say this is the truth. Then he will run his fingers and he said, this is the truth. And then a third line is this is the truth. And she said this is what you should every night he would sit there for whatever period of time it

00:19:46--> 00:19:58

was, and he would run his lie his finger across. He could not read the words. He did not know what it was he was just like, run his finger like this across and he said this is the truth. There is

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

Allah subhanaw taala gave him a hard time I will say it and the all the all the all the beautiful signs of the, of the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala were shown to this man now. Now please, I don't want you to get into this in the boys I told you about all who is married? Where is what is the address? What is his phone number?

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

In any case, he was being generous with his no phone number. And I also don't want you to

00:20:26--> 00:20:56

unfortunately we have to make all these disclaimers because there are people who are sitting there and say Oh, so are you saying that aid is okay not to understand the foreign aid is not important to understand the countries have mercy on yourself. Right? So the point I'm making here is that in order to be a McDuffie, it is not necessarily the reality it is not necessary even to be literate. And what that is somebody was concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. So anything he or she does is takes us as does this please Allah.

00:20:57--> 00:21:24

If it pleases Allah, they will do it. If it does not praise Allah, they will not do it. Such people Allah said the Quran will give them a little McDuffie. So they will get guidance on the Quran. Even if they are not great scholars and whatnot Allah subhanaw taala will find the means and all those words that will give them guidance from a scholar insha Allah. So therefore the Quran is a book of guidance. But as I said, there is a precondition which is

00:21:25--> 00:22:07

of course the word also is well in that is that for everybody, all human beings, and this obviously includes everyone. Plus or minus what there is the the the that guidance is like saying well here's the river and the river is for anyone who drinks water who wants to record but on the other hand, you might say here is a river and the people who have some utensil to carry the water away from the river will have water also in the robes because they take the water and go the other river is that you drink it don't forget whatever it's up to the river is there is that is the hijjah which is that is the argument which is being stated and which is for or against any everybody to say that the

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

guidance has been provided to you

00:22:12--> 00:22:52

the leanness it has been provided to all of you. Whether you take it or you don't take it, it's up to you. But without any motivation is because the both of you already is concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. So therefore the guidance for the month of Angela we'll definitely have a while. Now. Therefore, as I said, You truly the Quran will be a witness for us or against us on the Day of Judgment, a witness whose evidence will not be rejected and whose evidence we will not be able to deny or refute a witness who will be listened to a witness who will intercede for us or complaint against us.

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

That is our choice.

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

Now who are those who earned Allah martyrs pleasure?

00:23:01--> 00:23:39

Allah della mentioned this and he said oh by UT la what what Rasulullah Willa Kemal Edina and I'm Allahu Allah him in the beginning I was in the pain, I was sure that he was all he has when he got off. Allah said, And whosoever obeys Allah Subhana Allah, Allah and the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be in the company of those on whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed His grace for among the prophets of the prophets, and this is the whole, and the martyrs, the Shahada, and the righteous, the Salah hate, and how excellent these companions are.

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

And others rather not only

00:23:43--> 00:23:53

mentioned those who received his blessing and grace, but promise to keep those who obey Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger with them.

00:23:54--> 00:23:57

So we always say Allah resurrect us

00:23:58--> 00:24:49

with rassada salam and his Ahava give us the company of hospitals in Geneva, on the day of judgment, may we be among those who will present our salon resources and lamps and receive his duar when we meet him at his house, and maybe May we be among those who will receive the water of alcocer from his blessed hat, and may we be among those who will cross those rods behind him in your protection or Allah, we make these guys how do how does that happen? by obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala and following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu is Allah and Allah subhana wa jal is the one who said this last word. And I said that, he said, What did he say? He said, Well, mejor de la rosewoods.

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

And whoever obeys Allah, and whoever obeys

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

for oolagah

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

Molina, Allah who has

00:25:01--> 00:25:06

lay him on Amala highly when the Nabina was in the UK now what's your day? Was it

00:25:07--> 00:25:26

perhaps when he got a visa and How beautiful are those companions? How excellent are those components? So therefore, if we want to be resurrected with a sort of laser center, then let us follow his son to the best of our ability in everything that we say or do.

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

Now let's write that I also mentioned this matter of following the sun and the reward for it in sort of tower.

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

As the the mercy of Allah Subhana

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned is also in sort of Dawa

00:25:43--> 00:25:56

wasabi hautala Walloon Amira Mahajan, Ansari will levina tera warmbier near Ravi Allah no more other one will add their own general integrity. And Haruka Ed nafi.

He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow which is Jana to dwell there in forever highly enough we have other that is radica one puzzle on him that is supreme success. When there's new research This is also the fact there he reflects on what a lot of annual data what he's asking a lover and what he needs to do for his daughter to be answered. He makes Toba and he changes his ways to follow the sun now for salsa Salah which he asked Allah Serrano tala for

00:27:03--> 00:27:14

my brothers to remind myself I knew that take this this is the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala i think that you know the more I try to talk about it the

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

more dissatisfied I am with my ability to do justice to it.

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

This is the beauty of this analysis

00:27:24--> 00:27:30

of this extra duty of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala take this is also

00:27:32--> 00:27:45

00:28:00--> 00:28:04

simply could have said as nominal mohajir in our answer.

00:28:06--> 00:28:21

But Allah did not say that lots of arrows left that door open the door for those who follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Allah subhanho that left that door open until the end of time

00:28:23--> 00:28:40

until the last human being is on the earth. That last human being will have the opportunity to follow the Sunnah of Rosa Rosa Salaam and go to the door into that list of people about whom Allah Subhana Allah one who are the one

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

right? They are pleased with Allah and Allah, Allah speaks with them and they are pleased with

00:28:47--> 00:29:11

now this is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala could have closed the list by mentioning those who accepted or sold as a service data, who supported him who gave their wealth and lives in the path of his lab. They gave their wealth and lives in the path of supporting solar as a seller.

00:29:13--> 00:29:24

Right? Just think about the meaning of following the zona for them completely compared to us. For us today following is a nice for most of us What is it is to give a weird for example

00:29:25--> 00:29:37

how much of blood Do you need to shed for that how many times you have to cut off your head to keep your beard how much of how many millions of dollars Do you have to spend for that you have to do nothing the only so now that happened with doing no nothing at all, is the beard

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

that is our that is our test that well.

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

This is our test

00:29:47--> 00:29:52

the rest of it, to speak nicely to people to speak the truth not to tell lies and so on and so forth all of these anyway.

00:29:53--> 00:29:58

Anyway because we're supposed to do we should do that is the way any human decent human being will live.

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

But for the Sahaba what was the meaning of following

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

the meaning of volumes and I was literally to put their lives on the line because there are people who are killing them for that reason.

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

Yet Allah subhanaw taala left that door open

00:30:15--> 00:30:25

and Allah said even if you do a little bit you will inshallah be collected with those who reads Far, far more than you will ever do in your life.

00:30:26--> 00:30:41

All of us collectively cannot become our Amal cannot be the equal of the one of you in one of this regard I had, yet Allah subhanaw taala in his mercy gave us this opportunity to be collected with them.

00:30:43--> 00:30:51

Now if he rejected opportunities, if we don't take that opportunity, then Believe me who's who is to blame who's to be who's responsible

00:30:52--> 00:30:53

for that problem.

00:30:54--> 00:31:04

ask Allah Subhana Allah data to enable us to understand the beauty of this religion which is so easy which is so natural, which is so

00:31:06--> 00:31:26

which which is which is so beautiful, to follow for our own benefit in this dunya while accurate and the one word for the whole thing is the son, the son now her mother was one my son No, no honey was was really good. He while he was happy, maybe he was alive.
