what are you planning are suitable for for the first films and our Lima
we begin the name of Allah All Praise and glory belongs to Allah, we thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we ask Allah to protect us in our lives in the journey of our guidance to protect us from evil whispers within ourselves and the awful consequences that will result of our misdeeds for whomever Allah does choose to guide. This is a great gift that no one can take away. No one can misguide that person ever, and whoever Allah azza wa jal decides to leave a stray in his perfect knowledge in his perfect justice in his perfect fairness, then that person will remain a stray and none can muster guide into such a person. And you
testify that no one is worthy of our worship, our absolute devotion, our absolute level, our absolute surrender, but Allah and Allah own without any partners, the true supreme King, that the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah or an ecosystem was in truth, his prophets and his servant and His messenger.
All believers who you have believed Allah says to you have this consciousness of Allah at all times, for your own good, not for his own good for your own betterment in this world and then in the Hereafter, for your immediate and for your eventual, for your interior and for your societies for your exterior, remain observant of our love.
And do not die except in that state of complete and total observance surrender to Allah the blessing and majestic and Hi. After welcoming my brothers and sisters to the house of Allah azza wa jal, we thank Allah for the blessing of Islam and for the blessing of your own Juma on this day we're in we were created and the day when we will be returned to our Maker operator for putting us in his house and allowing us to hear another reminder that in sha Allah will reactivate for us a speedy journey towards him towards his pleasure towards an opportunity to see his face to kind of more data. And we continue with our journey as we have become accustomed to with the study of the overview of the
Quran. And in our last week in our last session, we spoke about Surah, Nisa, and how it discusses the value of Justice and the importance of justice for the preservation for the protection of any institution, any community, any establishment, whether it be family or society or nation.
And I pray that we have by that improved a bit, received some sort of determination from that from that reminder to make a change for the better to live with the Quran in practice and not just go from Jumeirah to Jumeirah allowing the second reminder to wash away the first and not allowing us to live in during the Quran. I pray that Allah makes that a reality Allah money and so we continue with that trying to tap into the beauty of the Quran and move on to Surah to America. And in May that literally means the tape
or the dinner table or the supper table that people sit on to eat? Why it is called that in a second. But the theme of Surah majeeda, the theme of today's cookbook is declared expressly stated in the very first words and sort of an idea. Yeah, you can Latina Manu, ello, Fubini, Roku, all you have believed, fulfill
the terms of your contracts, uphold your contracts. But what sort of tell man it is going to do now it's going to widen your understanding of a contract. A contract is not just something you do between two partners in a business, not just in a sale transaction in the grocery or the supermarket. It is not just something between two parties of humanity, your contracts are all that you are bound to your contracts, your covenants, your promises, your deals, you must live up to them. Because the word of the believer is worth more than 1000 oats of someone that does not believe does not believe in Allah having the last day you feel bound to them without anyone else needing to
remind you that you are bound to them. And the greatest of those things that you are bound to has nothing to do with people at all sort of that may that reminds you that it is your contract with Allah. That's why the surah is filled with discussion on the Meetha the contract the covenants that when we saw in had with Allah, the very last nation before you that did not live up to their contracts.
And this meet up is the same as Andrew poohed In effect, what is the means to be firm on something right? Allah azza wa jal says, when a youth deploy WhatsApp, I will, no one will, by the way that our Love binds meaning on the Day of Judgment when he snatches those deserving of torment. So this is what you are bound to. And then sort of made after establishing that it tells you Allah forbid or good to start the surah I'm going to define to you what contracts are but you need to know this is no life matter. You must l foo fulfill them all, just as you heard. In the suit in our discussion of Su de la cara very Brahim Ali Salam completed all of the commandments were Ibrahim and let the WEF
Allah says in surah, Nitsch Ibrahim, who fulfilled open ended he fulfilled everything, Ali salatu salam, and now it is our turn to live up to that. And then sooner than many, there's something very interesting in that it is filled with a discussion on who the other party in your contract is. And this is none other and no less than Allah Himself. It continues to repeat in that sutra, when he left he went to seminar to our Walkman while acquisition and cardio, the same statement recurrent different wording, same concept. So it is beaten into you if you will, it is carved in your personality, that belonging to Allah is full control over the heavens and the earth, the verses and
Allah is the Almighty, He is over all things capable. Why is that important? Because you know, when you have a deal with someone, if that someone has some sort of need for you, or some sort of lack of control on you, he could forego
your breakage of the contract. So if you have a deal with your employer to start at night and end at five o'clock, and you keep showing up late he could put up with breaking you breaking your deal in the contract because he can't find the replacement right now. So Allah azza wa jal when discussing the contract throughout the contract, he says, but listen, I'm not like anybody else. I am in full control. My treasure chests never deplete, they never empty. I am the Almighty. If you turn your back, you're easily replaceable, and that's all you find in sort of in America. Yeah, I do have that. Many of them in command D for sale for EFT law who will owe me you owe more you're gonna owe
you were relieved. If you turn your backs. If you betrayed the contract, Allah will replace you with another people. But if you look a little closer to the eyes, some of the scholars mentioned it says men, whom Whichever one of you men it could be used for singular, turns his back for Sofia Tila, Allah can bring about behold a whole people to replace you, meaning you turn away or bring the whole nation in your substitute to compensate for
for you, this is not difficult for Allah subhanho wa Taala that concept knows you understand the necessity of giving this contract it's due right? It's due seriousness. And we have seen this in Islamic history time and time again, the issue of taking Islam this deal you have with Allah for granted as if I'm born muslim and die Muslim, nothing is at stake there is no threat I'm never going to be great harm so long as I am upon Islam by terms of the contract of Islam, the one the Mongols came and they remove city after city with the Mongols that setup had done to the Muslim ummah perhaps had never before or after been done to the OMA, I don't think you expand now, can you
imagine that that of stopping in Baghdad and splitting a million throws without guns and bombs, and then they'll move on to the Father, the Father Stan, and they'll go and kill 700,000 there and then move on to another city and slit 1.2 million like this Oh, one city at a time, complete annihilation.
Until it is reported that one of the Muslims approached a woman or a scholar, the reports are varied. I read one of them yesterday that they came and said if you are the people of God, who are the Muslims, then why does your God let us do this with you have our way with you? She says Don't you know that the shepherd when he wants to take care of his sheep, he keeps a dog with him. You are the dog that Allah unleashed to get the get his flock back in order. And the amazing thing about that is one when they didn't keep their end of the contract, they were frightened, thinking they would almost be annihilated. And then many of them were replaced. After the long gold's took over
the lens of Islam. Islam took over the hearts of the Mongols. They became the new owner. They replaced the Ummah they embraced Islam and became Muslim. So Allah azza wa jal showed us in the pre in our Ummah, that we are replaceable, and then ensue the magic that tells us this is exactly what happened with the people before you don't take this lightly. And that's why the solar was called solar to marry that the supper table or the dinner table with the Christians called The Last Supper. Yeah. Allah azza wa jal says it's called a power to you this is why the sooner is called the method. One the however you which are the Sahaba the companions of Jesus, the son of Mary, when they said
yeah, he said in Amalia Oh Jesus, the son of Mary, how do you stop the robber Buka and Eunice Xena Alena, either 10 minutes Santa, is your Lord capable
of sending down for us a dinner from the heavens a dinner table I made and materials from the heavens.
He responded to them and said Paula Taboola in Quinto fear Allah How can you request something like that? To see a must ability you're doubting that He is the Almighty, fear Allah if you are believers, they said no need to pull me out of my inner canoe. Guna we wish to just eat from it and our hearts be reassured and to know for sure and consult the channel and that you were truthful to us and that we testify so that we can tell the world yes it's true Allah exists Allah is the almighty
so Allah at this point after resigns and I'm wishing for his people to stay guided to stay Muslim. He makes an attempt and it says Oh ALLAH can you send down for us not can you the ability me you would you send it down for us a mandate from the skies to be a festival the culinary than to be a festival for us for the first of us and the last of us
so that we may eat from it once the final recipient and you are the best of providers I know that but send it down for Beto Assadi card of love who ne ne Munna zero.
Allah says, I'm going to send down this money, I'm going to send down this this dinner for you. But here's the contract. This is why
it was a contractual not an unconditional gift. What we receive is not conditioned
familiar for coming home for any new or people who either love or who hadn't been randomly, but whatever have you disbeliefs whoever Have you doubts, whoever Have you breaches the contract after this, I will punish you with a punishment. I have never punished anyone else before. So there's a two way contract. It's a two way deal here. That's number one. The second thing you see in this area is what? I will punish you in a way I will never punish anybody. Why? Because these are people that are going to have a miracle in their bits. These are people that are going to see a huge miracle as
Time right with their very eyes. So they are supposed to be at the tip of certainty. It's almost as if they're not required to believe in the unseen anymore because what they requested Allah brought into a reality. And so the size of your gift will determine the size of your responsibility. The punishment if you breach will come to the degree of the privilege. Why is that important? Because now we are the most privileged on the whole time. And so within that it tells us that and he'll recommend to local dealer today I have completed for you your religion. What's memes are unable near Mati and perfected for you my favor, I privileged you I favored you in a way that is perfect. With
this Quran. What I'll lead to lacunae, Islam, Medina, and I have accepted been pleased with Islam as your way this is your turn. So now, are you going to live up to it? This is the this is the story of South America. And what does it mean to live up to it take this home from the football, it means four things so the lead that rotates around. The first is to learn this beam. That is your obligation, your responsibility not to depend on someone else to tell you what Islam is, that's your ability to do that as best you can. Then number two, to live what you've learned. And to not consider it just an empty luxury. And we'll come back to that point. And number three, you're
responsible like to be you know, not only nursing relative to Munna, we have taken a contract though this is super early on relative is here perfectly, we have taken a contract from whoever we give the book to you have to relay it conveyed to the people and not conceal it, that's three to deliver it. Number four, you are obligated to persevere throughout, you are obligated to put up with whatever it takes to make sure you do the past three.
And don't look for an easy door sort of madness.
At the early part of the surah Allah Davanzo dialysis. Yeah, you've been very interesting AG. Oh, you want to believe it, and then a blue one that can be che in MENA slavey, we are certainly going to test you with certain game, the animal that you shoot for food, we will with certain hunting animals that are accessible to you Tannat do a de komati magical, to which you can reach they're accessible to you with your hands and with your spears.
Think about that for a second. Let her be the one that could be shaved in Minnesota, we are going to try you with some of these animals that you hunt.
You know, try use an interesting word, because a person is trying with a disease. He's tried with poverty, he's tried with being at the mercy or lack of the enemy. But how are you trying with the hunted animals?
First of all understand the I are talking about the how the sacred sanctuary around the cabin. So it is a violation of the sanctity of that place to hunt in this area. Understood. And so these animals are accessible to you, you have ability to catch them. But I'm testing you because you can it. So the test is where the trial is where in the ease of the harm.
The ease at which the Haram presents itself to you.
And this is so relevant when a person is trying to keep his contract with Allah, especially nowadays, sometimes Haram is so easy.
And so just because it's easy, doesn't mean it's not a test. And so Allah so let's tell him I am testing you with this stuff that's right in front of you. I allowed it to be this available. I made the opportunity that easy.
This is exactly what we will get to that in two solos. What else have you said it's the people who fished on Saturday when they were not allowed. It was haram to fish on Saturday. And the other days. It was halal, but it was so easy to fish on Saturday.
And so Allah azza wa jal tested them with that being so easy, so tempting.
And so a person when he finds these yourself able to do something that reaches his contract with Allah, don't be happy, because it was a piece of cake. If Allah tested you with some weight to win the conversation, if Allah tested you with some job that's going to cost you Jumar if Allah allows you some
think that he does not permit it. He allows it in terms of other I mean, it's destined you can have it if you choose, but he does not permit it is not pleased with you having it. Don't be happy that you got it. It was just a test that is it's been reported about the Nagas a very beautiful statements regarding this means that we should pay special attention to though this authentically being from God, this is hard to prove another point he used to say
about you being able to get your hands on something that's haram and not caring about any other factor. He says what will lead to hire me minerality me and Ivana Shima
you not caring about those on your right meaning you're not having any shame from those on your right and those on your left? When you're committing the sin is actually greater than the sin itself?
And then he continued to say like no luck.
And if you being
what why the Phuket whatever you tell them tell the mullah who saw the home visit our home.
And you laughing when you have no idea what Allah is going to do with you yet if you haven't received your book yet, that is greater than the city.
He says what Farah who can either need to either delete them, or avoid them and you being happy that you committed the sin is greater than the city, what whose Nuka I let them be in fact check them and you being sad when you missed out on an opportunity to sin to break the contract with Allah is worse than the sin. He says what whole Fuka minute he either how to work it, sit to bed, I'll sit around Babich
and you being afraid when the wind move the curtain from your door you thought somebody was coming?
What I thought he moved to add that for me not only that he
and your heart not trembling in the same way that I was staring right at you that is greater than the Senate. So that's a message in South America for everybody.
And when you hear this verse, Now Allah is testing you with the animals that are right there in front of you. So available, when you hear this, I want you to be the smart person. The smart person is the one that goes home today and says what has Allah made easy for me in my life, and then put them into categories, which of them have brought me closer to Allah or not taken me farther from love and which has been traps that I fell in for? And then ask yourself in that list, what made me so happy about these things? Why didn't I see them as just a test?
It's because I wasn't reading some of the many that carefully.
And so this was the first one because it's so easy nowadays regarding your contract with Allah to just let it spill it it's so easy nowadays to say whatever you want to type whatever you want to do whatever you want and you think it's fine with the believer The difference is the believer understands that it being available and it being near to me easy for me, is Allah so just examining. The second advice Allah gives us to keep our contracts with him that are so serious, so that we are not replaced is you're not allowed to look around you.
Don't look around at who is going to be fulfilling the contract like me or not. Allah azza wa jal says when either theta m W. Man said Allah, everybody said to them follow up with Allah send down.
And what came down to the messenger called who has buena mela JD Na Li
they'll say no, no, put that away. No, it is enough for us what we found our forefathers upon
many of us say this statement without realizing when they're told effete is not permissible. Sister. You need to change the way you speak the brother you need to find another job. They see what are you talking about? This is the way everyone's been doing it. Everybody does this. My parents did this. My grandparents did that. They prayed like this they made had you like that? Don't come here with a new religion. Right?
As if Allah Subhana Allah told you just make sure you're like everybody else. So Allah de la Coronavirus. This is not an evidence of Lee in your favor. This was not the contract. The contract was unwelcome.
tweet today and he says lol Can I bet?
Larry, I'm gonna cheat and what I have to do, what if their fathers didn't know anything? Part of the contract I sent in one of four was what you have to learn. You're only allowed to imitate another wisdom, even if he's a scholar temporarily until you can learn because Allah knows it's impossible for you to learn all of Islam overnight or even in your entire lifetime. But you need to exert an effort to verify every aspect of your Islam. Is it what Allah wants from me, isn't what came down on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or not, and you are not allowed to look around. That's not part of the contract.
And this is not just with our forefathers, this is with our cultures, this is what we inherit, you know, the sin starts as a sin initially, right? And everyone's offended. And then after a while, it just becomes normal, it becomes normal. And then we have aspects in our culture that are sins that we think are part of the religion of Allah subhana wa. And that's why you're not allowed to look around
the body how those stuff allah how the money works.
111 salatu salam
ala ADA in a world where they would actually collaborate shadow number from within I will do whenever you also
there are a few quick points if I wish after asking the brothers was like a little playdough to fill all the gaps that they can come together today. So we have all of our youth
and extra parents coming in from the left. So fill as many gaps as you can. We'll worry about the rules when we get there. So
there is a scene and there are many scenes in Silicon Valley, that explain how the previous nations and why the previous nations breached their covenants with ALLAH SubhanA wa, and why they will replace ultimately with this ummah after each ally. So
out of the those we wish to mention quickly to bring some of these meanings full circle is the story of Musa alayhis salam entering Jerusalem. Allah Tabata kala Dionysus that Mussolini Salam said to his people who the hula RW but this I let it get him Allahu La wala attracted to Allah antibiotic, enter the promised land the holy land
which Allah has written for you, it's yours follow instructions, it's a given. And don't turn your backs the same Iam recycling 20 minutes. Whoever turns their back on will replace them. He said to them, don't do it. Don't turn your backs. So they said almost in a funeral home in January. Right? There are some really tough superpower people in bed, right? We're in Atlanta, Florida had their food to me I've
been having in the afternoon, and we'll never enter it will never face them. We're not willing to face this challenge.
If the lead will enter,
so the conversation is bent on throwing at Musala hustler in the middle of this conversation. There's one sentence that's interjected and the conversation continues, very interesting. Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, Call our July 20 minute Lavina halfmoon and Allah
and Allah who I think he met with the Hulu or an even better for either the hunt to move in Hollywood, or move into Kenya we could to move meaning to men. According to the vast majority of the scholars Puranic explanation scholars, these two men were ordinary folks, just two men, who were they they were men feared Allah and Allah Who are the man I love favorite them by granting them this fear of Allah Subhana Allah that
they said, or the whole arrangement bear just marched through the gates of the city. If you do that you're promised victory and put your trust in Allah if you are believers. And then they go back to most of them say we're not going in effort no matter what you win your Lord of the Flies.
Who's talking to ordinary men in the presence of who think about what just happened in the presence of mu Sally's celebrity living
and not just musanze his brother Hassan Ali Salam, another prophet, and not just how old Mussolini was set out, but according to some reports, you shall known which is the servant boy who took after who's the apprentice.
As the most Alex set up a third one, he's there as well. And still they found a role for themselves.
So if you see people giving talks, helping Islam, you know, reclaim itself and its reputation. If you see people coming to Islam in waves, if you see the Ummah awakening to its Deen, you still have work to do. That's still not enough. You have to find your place in this doubt, for your sake, because that's part of the contract. And we said number three is to deliver it. That's part of the contract, whatever you know, of Islam, you need to deliver. And if you do that, you will face some opposition. And it wouldn't be a bit difficult. And it's going to be challenging internally and externally. But if you don't, what you are going to suffer is so much more painful. Internally and
externally. You know what Elijah said this was in May that Furby man I believe Meetha who lie now. Watch it now. Paul, do
you have a phone and Kelly man Mila Liddy when so how many been the QB?
It's because they will reaching their contracts that we expelled them from our nurse. This is the meaning of life. And we made their hearts hard.
The most painful feeling in the world worse than death worse than the hellfire, you feel disconnected from our must pattern or die.
And that's why one of our brothers, you know, he tells people in Darwin to be so true, so correct. He says to her listen, I'm not telling you, if you become Muslim, all your problems are going to be solved overnight. It's quite a low. But a mob will give you a nearness to him. And inner peace that will enable you to handle it all. You know, it's very hard, it's very hard to do, what this contract is demanding of. But if you just walk through the door, as they're telling you, if you just do what Allah is commanding of you, he will infuse you with this nearness, this sweetness and the strength to be able to continue, you will be able to do it, you will be able to if need be. And this is part
of the contract in some scenarios, to walk away from the whole world that's very hard for you, the whole world are doing something and I'm gonna be the weirdo. The whole world is following a certain trend as I'm sorry, I don't we don't do that stuff. Only after marriage knowing that we don't celebrate this read only. This is not one of the ways to get them to that level. Right? What I said in the beginning of the formula is to no this is a deal with who with Allah, the Almighty Subhana Allah to Allah. Number two to know that Allah will strengthen you once you begin on this path towards you take one step he will take 10 He'll meet you and carry you Subhana wa Tada on this
Even if you need to walk away from the world, even if you need to carry mountains, because sometimes the contract demands that will be my last reflection here.
At the end of the conversation with Mussolini, certainly so the man
he said Robbie, in Neela liquid in the NFC one. Oh my Lord, I have no say over anybody. I can't control the decisions made by anybody but myself and my brother. How am I Sir furfural baby were made their own facet. So separate between me and between the rebellious people. Sometimes the only way this is what adds to your ability to fulfill your contract. Sometimes that means yes keeping relationship for Allah and suffering others for Allah Subhana Allah.
And to not be fazed Allah tells you focus on me. I will empower you. Don't be fazed by the numbers. Don't be fazed by the numbers. He said in Seward Hillman Ada, Kula Estelle with hubby therapy, tell them it is not equivalent, that hubby through the fall and the length of your one hour agenda throttle Hadith, even if you're impressed by the size of the iceberg, right? Even if you're impressed by how the numbers of how much evil is out there, there comes a time where you may have to walk away to stay with Allah so that you'll be able to just have to stay home, stay in your Masjid mode. Hold on to that contract. Sometimes you need to as Allah says so the man under an income and
full circle liable broken remembered man either and today to just focus on yourself. Just ignore everything else. The temptation to the criticisms just leave it all off. It you will not be harmed club promise not in this Don't ever be afraid of you will not be harmed by the whole world being against the whole
We're all being wrong. If they go astray you will not be harmed so long as you are guided.
Ask yourself my brothers and sisters asked himself, how Cognizant are we on this country?
How soft and near do we feel our hearts to Allah? If not being how many of you nobody says either magenta be anemic or pastel. You find this hardness in your heart you can't feel His nearness. You can't feel his health. You can't feel that his relief is near. You can't feel these things. He says, fella Anika from goldfill, Anglican Cardinal PowerCLI
you be careful check meaning you broke your contract.
And the prophets Allah Allah Allah Himself. This contract is renew has to be reactivated. It's done every single day. Kulu NESEA. fair bet you will never seven for more tiempo el Divo and say Mr. Lim, he says every person walks out in the morning and he sells his spirit. He sells his soul. I mean, he sells himself he invests himself in some sort of endeavor, right? And so by doing that, he either liberates himself, he finds inner peace, he finds strength, he finds liberation. He finds happiness, he finds salvation by selling himself to Allah, or he says he either saves himself or he destroys it, by selling it to shaitan by selling it to the people that are inflated or artificially by
selling by the momentum of evil that is around, suited Mary that tells you hold on to that country. Everything you want. Everything you've lost, you'll find it in the fluid. Just make some June that speak to all the law, renew your contract with him. Subhana wa Dawn, we asked a lot of teachers out to understand the scope and to allow us a lot of life that we're in we are attached to this book. May Allah make us of those that never betray our contracts with him. May Allah Subhana Allah enable us at this moment to renew our promises to him. May Allah azza wa jal forgive us for only he knows about us and
may Allah subhanho wa Taala make our reputation among slaves beautiful, and make what they don't know about this better than what they know of us on the moon. May Allah grant this sincerity in public and in private, and in speech and actions, protect our children from every confusion, every temptation, protect our men and our women and our children, our brothers and our sisters, local and abroad from every risk and every disease and have mercy on every disease among the Muslims. I love them. I mean, Allah Philip Hammond Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah for Allah Now Hannah
