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

I mean a lot of solid asleep so you didn't say the weather the

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

heavy you know heavy when I was

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

early he was suddenly he was the woman

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

in Hollywood, when we should

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

certainly have gone Holy

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

Quran and Avi 100 something which you can put in, we praise a lot of Lady and we send prayers and blessings upon the beloved and final messenger Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him his noble family, righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the Day of Judgment.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:07

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we say as the angel said, glory be to you, Oh Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the only way the all wise.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:52

I again congratulate you for still being alive and meeting again in the beautiful month of Ramadan, witnessing another seven days of the month of Ramadan May Allah subhanaw taala accept from me in New in sha Allah, may Allah protect us from hellfire, one of the greatest treasures and wars and successes in the month of Ramadan is getting a guarantee of protection of hellfire May Allah make us of course, of course, this takes work. And this takes effort protection from hellfire is not something small. So this takes real striving in this month. And even though the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is so near to the good doers.

00:01:54 --> 00:02:10

He thinks the way he rewards us is that he gives us so much reward for so little good that we do. And this month, he has facilitated those good deeds and facilitated all of those rewards because He is the Most Merciful and the Most Generous.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:22

This is the month of the Quran. This is the month to rediscover the Quran, because we have abandoned

00:02:24 --> 00:02:35

in terms of recitation, in terms of deliberation, in terms of seeking understanding in terms of obedience and application.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:51

You mentioned many different types of hedges, Azure of Quran abandoning of the Quran and these are songs that I just mentioned to you for this is the time to rediscover the Quran, Allah azza wa jal open our hearts and brains to the Quran.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

Last time we

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

we left off

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

sort of

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

which verse

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


00:03:06 --> 00:03:23

and 18. By the way, just a reminder, some of the sisters are complaining of people speaking some of the sisters maybe are speaking or maybe they saw a friend they haven't seen for a long time, a lot of caleffi consistent if you can just delay it till after the talk, so that

00:03:24 --> 00:03:31

everyone can understand and afterwards there's a spot and there's plenty time to socialize and enjoy what's up.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

Before I forget, because you always

00:03:36 --> 00:03:40

just let me start so that I can forget what happened to the homework.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

No homework.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:48

We had to try and find something similar.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50


00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

That was the homework.

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

We remember what the look is when we didn't do it.

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

You didn't read through the tool.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:08

If you read through the tone you found the verse Sure. No question. Follow the lead to

00:04:09 --> 00:04:13

a later date if you didn't get it or should I just say

00:04:24 --> 00:04:27

we left off with verse 13. And I think we explained it

00:04:31 --> 00:04:31

I shaved

00:04:33 --> 00:04:34


00:04:36 --> 00:04:37


00:04:41 --> 00:04:41


00:04:43 --> 00:04:44

can mean

00:04:46 --> 00:04:55

a lot there is no deity except Him. And upon a lot let the believers rely. We explain this. And we mentioned that

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

this is a command to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone

00:05:00 --> 00:05:12

And without partners, and this is not something simple. If it was that simple, then you will find that the majority of the world's population is indeed worshipping Allah without partners. But this is the opposite.

00:05:13 --> 00:05:15

It's a very simple concept. But it's

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

it's saddening

00:05:21 --> 00:05:39

that most of the world is not worshiping Allah azza wa jal without partners is the opposite. The simple reality, this unequivocal and most magnificent reality of the universe, the Oneness of Allah azza wa jal, and people are arguing over

00:05:41 --> 00:05:43

getting what we need, and let upon

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

Apollo moment the believers rely or put their trust. This is a natural consequence of believing in the one and only Allah, if you believe in the One and Only Allah, and that he is the only one worthy of worship. And therefore, he is the only one who is in charge of everything that happens in the universe, then how can we trust other than Allah, and how can we rely upon other than Allah, when he is the one who has full ability, and you ally are the helpless human beings, and yet we find each other, going to each other, and only trusting and relying upon each other and forgetting the most important and that is relying upon Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42


00:06:51 --> 00:07:05

four you have believed, indeed, among your wives, and your children, are enemies to you, so beware of them. But if you pardon and overlook and forgive, then indeed, Allah is forgiving.

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

What is the meaning of this?

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

This is so important.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:20

Because we live as family units, most people do not live alone.

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

Grant the bachelors what they desire. But most of us,

00:07:26 --> 00:07:34

in sha Allah live as families, there are wives and husbands and children and relatives and so on. What does it mean that

00:07:36 --> 00:07:38

your wives and your children are alone,

00:07:39 --> 00:07:40

our enemies,

00:07:42 --> 00:07:58

we don't usually refer to the fallen unit, as one where there is enmity at least there should not be an enmity, it is a South solidly a well knit structure of the family.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:04

When we refer to enmity here, this enmity is enmity of religion.

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

Then we see of religion.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:11

At the time of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:18

It is largely understandable how that enmity came about.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:20

And that is because

00:08:21 --> 00:08:24

many people followed Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

But maybe other family members did not.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:34

In that sense, the close parable is

00:08:35 --> 00:08:38

some of today's reverts the ones who came back to Islam,

00:08:39 --> 00:08:48

who are not Muslim, maybe were born Muslim, and then became Muslim, but maybe a mother or father did not, or a brother or sister.

00:08:49 --> 00:08:59

And then enmity was created in the family because of their religion or their faith. There are people who are understanding parents who are understanding

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

who accepted their child's conversion, and there are others who did not.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:11

Now I'm talking currently, I'm not talking 1400 years ago now.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:14

And in fact, in some families,

00:09:15 --> 00:09:39

the parents literally exonerated themselves of their children. I knew an Italian brother who became Muslim. He said, after I became Muslim, my parents declared themselves innocent of me. I still love them very much, but this is the decision they took, I tried selecting them and so on, I tried speaking to them with respect but no can do the parents.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:53

They only became complete enemies to the son after he had become Muslim. And this happened at the time of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And this is one of the things that the pagans of Metka used to

00:09:55 --> 00:09:57

mock Prophet Muhammad peace be upon them

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

to say

00:10:00 --> 00:10:20

If you have come, you have insulted the gods and the forefathers and so on and you have worked at a religion that we have not heard of, and you have separated between a husband and his wife, and a child and his father and so on. Indeed, he did not.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:31

He is not the one from Allah, Allah, who created that enmity amongst them, he came with the truth. And the truth at times hurts

00:10:32 --> 00:10:58

the truth at times is not that simple to accept, he came with the truth. And based on that there are people in these families who decided to step on their arrogance, and to accept the truth and follow the truth. And there are others who did otherwise, there are others who lived by that arrogance, who only looked at their material economic interests in this dunya and didn't look at and

00:10:59 --> 00:11:03

think about whether it is truth or not. And this we see up to today,

00:11:05 --> 00:11:11

people who literally may know in their heart that this is true.

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


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

they influence their material interests,

00:11:20 --> 00:11:21

their reputation,

00:11:23 --> 00:11:55

and their place in society. And the stronger this was a stronger influence than the influence of coming to the truth, and standing before Allah subhanaw taala to testify that yes, Oh Allah, I lost all of these other things. And I sacrificed all of these material interests, to follow the truth that I knew in my heart, others did not do that. I will call him as one of them, the uncle of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him with all that he did. For Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he could not in the end,

00:11:56 --> 00:11:57

he couldn't

00:11:58 --> 00:12:01

leave or abandon the influence of

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03


00:12:06 --> 00:12:07

the supposin

00:12:09 --> 00:12:51

status of his forefathers and his religion and so on, even on his deathbed, and this is what's amazing. Even on his deathbed, he couldn't do that. Forget about during his life during his life, he would have seen the quote unquote, in his mind negative effects of becoming Muslim, but now you're on your deathbed, what is it that you are going to die now what what is what are people going to say? He lost his alcohol because of this, be careful of these material interests. And this affects us now and today, not in terms of becoming a muslim or not Inshallah, but in terms of a video obedience, does it not? Of course.

00:12:52 --> 00:12:55

My reputation doesn't allow me to follow the Sunnah.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:02

My status in society doesn't allow me to grow a beard. That's a small example.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:11

I am so so far because of these economic interest I have I have to take out the biller.

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

Isn't this true rather than sisters? Or am I speaking?

00:13:17 --> 00:13:27

Is this part of my imagination or is this happening? This is what it is. These are these are real, these are real, negative influences upon us.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

as well.

00:13:33 --> 00:14:12

This is precisely the meaning of the idea that amongst your wives and your children are enemies to you. scholar says this can have two meanings, either direct and real enmity as we just discussed in terms of people who converted, whether 1400 years ago or now were literally the parents or the children, they became enemies to the one who became Muslim, follow the last Patara or it can be a metaphorical meaning to me, that they are not really enemies of you, but the way they dissuade you from religion

00:14:13 --> 00:14:38

and prevent you from True obedience to Allah subhanaw taala It is almost as if they have become enemies to you. And there is no greater enemy than an enemy that takes you away from Allah subhanaw taala. And in that sense, the Shavon is your worst enemy, because the shaper wants the worst for you. And He wants you to work in Hellfire for eternity.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:51

And many of your brothers and sisters amongst you, though they may have some enmity towards you. I don't think it has come to the level of wanting you to rot in Hellfire for eternity.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

But for shaper, this is his main goal. His existence here is precisely for that, not only for you, but all of you

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

Honestly, it is his greatest achievement,

00:15:04 --> 00:15:08

if he could dissuade all of humanity from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:13

Therefore, amongst your wives

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

are enemies to you. So beware of that beware of them having that characteristic.

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

Not everyone

00:15:26 --> 00:15:32

is in this situation. Many of us in sha Allah have wives that only help us

00:15:34 --> 00:15:42

towards obedience, and coming closer to Allah subhanaw taala and following the commands of Allah, and avoiding his prohibitions, but

00:15:44 --> 00:15:45

despite that,

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

there may be certain issues,

00:15:50 --> 00:15:57

whereby they are dissuading us from Allah subhanaw taala, or taking us away from True obedience.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:03

This is for those whose wives in general help

00:16:04 --> 00:16:06

that person towards obedience.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:09

But then there are

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


00:16:13 --> 00:16:19

who literally are enemies to their husbands, because they are a major source of

00:16:20 --> 00:16:28

taking them away from their religion, or from obedience to Allah, subhanaw taala, literally, and we hear of this, and we see this.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:40

And this is not restricted to wives. This also applies to the husbands, someone may say, well, is the I are always speaking about wives, as well just

00:16:42 --> 00:16:56

an email properly says, it applies to the men and the women, the husbands and the wives. Just as there are enemies in the wives of some husbands, there are enemies in the husbands of some wives.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:04

And we see this, this is a reality. And we hear about it Subhanallah so many wives,

00:17:05 --> 00:17:25

requesting fatawa, about their husband that doesn't pray, what should I do, should I leave him or not? This is a reality. So many wives saying, my husband drinks and I have advised him many times and so on. This is a reality Subhanallah so this enmity is there, whether it is a husband or a wife,

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

so many wives,

00:17:29 --> 00:17:40

pressurizing their husbands financially, and eventually leading him to take her on the villa. Fear Allah, they're sisters.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:43

So many of the sisters

00:17:44 --> 00:17:53

maybe not allowing or distracting their husbands from praying their five prayers in the masjid fear Allah dear sisters,

00:17:55 --> 00:17:56

so many husbands,

00:17:57 --> 00:18:06

not allowing their wife to be dutiful, towards her parents, or her relatives, fear Allah dear brothers.

00:18:08 --> 00:18:11

So many husbands forcing their wives

00:18:12 --> 00:18:19

because supposedly obedience is to him, forcing their wives to do things that Allah subhanahu wa taala abhors.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:24

Fear Allah, my dear brothers, in this way,

00:18:26 --> 00:18:38

they are enemies of one another. If they are a cause, to divert them from the religion of Allah subhanaw taala or obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yeah, you understand?

00:18:39 --> 00:18:39

As well as

00:18:41 --> 00:18:45

my dear brothers and sisters, every time you feel

00:18:46 --> 00:19:04

that for some reason, you have been taken away from obedience to Allah subhanaw taala because of a wife or because of a husband, remember this idea and recite it and feel that Allah azza wa jal is speaking to you and reminding you and the command after that is

00:19:07 --> 00:19:21

so beware of them. Beware of them taking you away. Because the most important thing you have the most important value or asset you have in this dunya is fear of Allah and religiosity and piety.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:28

Everything else, don't worry about it. This is all part of the Vineya Allah subhanaw

00:19:30 --> 00:19:31


00:19:32 --> 00:19:35

in the dunya this is in general,

00:19:36 --> 00:19:47

turn away from the one who turns away from our remembrance and only desires this higher dunya turn away from those people.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:51

If you have friends who are like that, turn away from them.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

Of course, for a wife or a husband who is living with you constantly. You cannot leave them

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


00:20:03 --> 00:20:12

you shouldn't be aware, that negative influence, don't let that negative influence, influence you.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:14

Beware of

00:20:17 --> 00:20:18

many men

00:20:19 --> 00:20:28

have helped their women to religiosity and many women have helped their men to religiosity. And we can take a few examples. Look at for instance,

00:20:31 --> 00:20:32

the wife of somehow

00:20:35 --> 00:20:52

the most evil, who is mentioned in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala says clearly, that you should, to the angels that you should throw this around his people into the worst punishment into the fire will

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

have a pious wife

00:20:58 --> 00:21:05

not only a pious wife, but the best of the women of Paradise, as in the authentic hands of Prophet Muhammad, Allah says,

00:21:07 --> 00:21:13

and she's the one and Allah azza wa jal gave this example. And he spoke about her and she says,

00:21:14 --> 00:21:30

that, rescue me from Sharon and his evil deeds, and rescue me from the evil doing people and so on. She is the one who asked Allah azza wa jal, a house in paradise with him from

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


00:21:34 --> 00:21:44

Can you imagine the level of this wife and she is living, you have been the most pious woman living with the most evil.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

So don't be surprised.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:56

You might see a doctor or a shape or a scholar, and then you see their wife Subhanallah living is not that religious, that happens.

00:21:57 --> 00:21:59

And maybe a child, a former was vice

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

and vice versa. Subhanallah he is in the hands of Allah, Allah. The guidance on the hearts is not in my hand and we do what we can, but ultimately, the guidance is Allah subhanaw taala.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

Another example

00:22:17 --> 00:22:24

of the Allah, this blessed woman, she was a reason for the conversion of her husband.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:33

She was the reason for Islam. He wanted to marry her when he was still a disbeliever. She said, No,

00:22:34 --> 00:22:48

I am not permissible to you in this state, unless you become Muslim. And he went back and he deliberated. And he came back and he declared his Islam and she accepted no dowry except his Islam.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:01

Her dowry, she was happy with her dowry being the fact that became a Muslim, has one of the greatest competitors. But look at the blessing of this wife upon her husband.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

So it's not just for the wife,

00:23:05 --> 00:23:06

the men and the women.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:14

This is a reality that Allah azza wa jal has recorded in his book, as well. Well, let her do what

00:23:19 --> 00:23:22

it is narrated on the authority of seven.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:37

This is referring to people at the time of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him who became Muslim, and who intended to migrate to Medina.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:51

But their wives and their children are the ones who prevent them. How can you leave us how can you go to another land? How can you become Muslim and leave the religion of your forefathers and so on.

00:23:52 --> 00:24:08

And indeed, they dissuaded them from the migration. And when eventually those men migrated, and saw Muhammad peace be upon him, and saw the companions and saw how much they had learned, and how much they had grown in the face.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:11

They were so annoyed

00:24:12 --> 00:24:16

that they promised to punish their wives and their children.

00:24:18 --> 00:24:20

And indeed, they had every right to be annoyed.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:39

How much they lost, how many of their years they lost, seeing the beloved wonderful Allah's being with Beloved Prophet Muhammad, Allah, learning from Beloved Prophet Muhammad for years and years, they lost, they have every right to feel that way.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:41

But in addition,

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

they wanted to punish them, and they promised that they would punish them.

00:24:48 --> 00:24:52

But then you read the rest of the verses. What, what,

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


00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

Allah for Allah, say Allahu Akbar, rather than

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

So, this is another example,

00:25:03 --> 00:25:14

an amazing example of Allah commanding mercy and forgiveness towards ones who are attempting to take you away from Allah azza wa jal.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:20

Do you see the the, the amazing proof in this,

00:25:22 --> 00:25:24

this Essence of Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:25 --> 00:25:31

people who are forcing you to disbelief are taking you away from the religion

00:25:32 --> 00:25:47

taking you away from Allah subhanaw taala maybe they're insulting Allah. Maybe they are claiming he has a child and they're attending you go away from Allah doesn't leave the religion of Allah don't migrate, leave the Messenger of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is commanding them,

00:25:48 --> 00:25:52

to forgive them and to have mercy upon them. Subhan Allah

00:25:57 --> 00:26:00

it is amazing that Allah is commanding this

00:26:02 --> 00:26:06

if shift was not such a great sin,

00:26:07 --> 00:26:16

even if it wasn't such a great sin, just the fact that they're saying, leave Allah leaves the Messenger of Allah and Allah is saying forgive them for what they are saying.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:29

But then you add the fact that she is the worst sin in, in the whole world. And the only sin Allah azza wa jal will not forgive without repentance. They only say

00:26:30 --> 00:26:42

nothing is worse than the sin of associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala and despite the fact that these wives and children

00:26:43 --> 00:26:58

who were helping their husbands to this belief in Allah and to commit the worst sin, Allah did not command the husbands to punish them but rather to forgive them and have mercy on them Allah

00:27:01 --> 00:27:03

have you seen another another example like this

00:27:06 --> 00:27:08

there's another example. Similar

00:27:11 --> 00:27:14

No, this is simple inshallah we'll get it No.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:17

I'm sorry.

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


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


00:27:30 --> 00:27:32

example I intended, but it's a nice example.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:42

Referring to forgiving even some of the keytab who are trying to force you into disbelief and so on. It's a good example. caleffi

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

What's the other one?

00:27:47 --> 00:27:49

Sort of? A No?

00:27:55 --> 00:28:17

Okay, okay. Mashallah. MashAllah Kalani Abu Bakr. Yes, Abu Bakar forgave his relatives who insulted his own daughter saying I have no love or honor and Allah subhanaw taala commanded him to be forgiving, but in this case, He's forgiving. Something that is insulting to him not to Allah.

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

One day example of something

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

that has to do with religion or insulting Allah has always had

00:28:26 --> 00:28:27


00:28:30 --> 00:28:31

about the parents

00:28:36 --> 00:28:40

I love Krishna Kirby, Melissa. Hola. Hola. Hola.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:42

Hola in dunya now HuFa

00:28:44 --> 00:28:56

your own parents. If they strive and tell you, they can tell you. They're not just saying please come and become a Kaffir they are telling you to disbelief.

00:28:58 --> 00:28:59

Do not evade

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

the rest of the verse not come forth.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:29

Who knows where the Allah would be? Many of the children will say no, they are compelling me to the worst sin of Islam. I will be an enemy to them until I die. And I will not speak to them and I will wake up them and so on. Allah azza wa jal lesson dunya Mousa and be a good companion to them in this dunya Subhana. Allah lords, they got to them, they're your parents.

00:29:30 --> 00:29:33

They are comparing you to the worst sin in Islam.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:40

They are your parents, and they have rights opponents, be respectful and be a good companion to them in this

00:29:44 --> 00:29:54

field, in the love of life, and if you forgive me, if you pardon, overlook and forgive, then indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. The amount of

00:29:55 --> 00:29:59

differentiates between that for what he says

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

is to forgive even though that may include some reprimanding

00:30:10 --> 00:30:15

is forgiving without reprimanding, like one prophet did

00:30:19 --> 00:30:21

before forgave without reprimanding them

00:30:24 --> 00:30:25


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

he forgave and he did not reprimand them

00:30:32 --> 00:30:33


00:30:34 --> 00:30:40

use of Salah welcome avec use of forgiveness. And the Quran says letter three.

00:30:42 --> 00:30:48

Letter three means no recommending no blame is upon you today. This is

00:30:50 --> 00:30:51

like a higher level of

00:30:54 --> 00:31:20

saying Allah for Rahim that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And keep in mind as still the I have certain rules that the brother mention Allah to have guna and yet for Allah Allah, don't you love that Allah will forgive you so forgiving them, your family, your parents forgiving these people who have done wrong to you is a reason in sha Allah for Allah to forgive you and to forgive our sins May Allah forgive us

00:31:28 --> 00:31:29

one long way

00:31:33 --> 00:32:06

You're welcome your children are but a trial. And Allah has with him a great reward. This meaning is similar to the one before but Allah azza wa jal uses a different word and that is fitness. And fitness is correctly translated as trial here, but it could mean other things. It could also mean tribulation could also mean this suasion or distraction that your your your children and your wealth, they can be a distraction or a dissuasion for you from the religion of Allah subhanho wa taala.

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


00:32:09 --> 00:32:09

the wealth

00:32:11 --> 00:32:30

so now we have the wives and the husband, the children, and the wealth and wealth is one of the greatest distractions from the religion of Allah, and from obedience to Allah subhanaw taala especially in this month of Ramadan, there are people brothers and sisters in the month of Ramadan who are counting their money.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:33

They're counting their money in the month of Ramadan.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:37

Count your money later, if you're counting it.

00:32:39 --> 00:33:09

But if you're just counting it, just to see how much money you have leaves this Ramadan is the loss of the month of one month, one month out of the 12 months, give it to Allah make it the most of the month of dunya dunya has changed like this shape has changed. This is the these are the great rewards the low self forgiveness, the low self protection from hellfire, the winning

00:33:11 --> 00:33:16

VV the door for the ones who are winning forgiveness for all of our sins.

00:33:19 --> 00:33:28

Fifth, Allah who are joined here, he didn't say me in the previous idea, he said, as logical, right?

00:33:29 --> 00:33:43

Well, I don't want that. They're not always enemies, but there can be enmity and they can be metaphorically an enemy to you by thanking you for distancing you from the religion of Allah. But as for

00:33:45 --> 00:33:58

he said, clearly it is fitna because it's a different word here from different meanings sickness. It's a tribulation. It's an instruction. This applies all the time. Right for all wealth and all children. They can be a distraction and

00:33:59 --> 00:34:03

a fitna that tribulation for someone Allah

00:34:06 --> 00:34:09

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, quoted this.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:15

You see the way he lived with

00:34:16 --> 00:34:18

and the way he

00:34:21 --> 00:34:23

saw its application in his life.

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

He was standing on the member giving the hook

00:34:30 --> 00:34:33

and then his beloved grandsons

00:34:35 --> 00:34:44

lovely Hola. Hola. Enter the masjid. And you can just imagine this site. They come in, they're wearing like a long shirt.

00:34:45 --> 00:34:47

A red, a long red shirt.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

They are down and because it's a little bit long, they're tripping. They're hugging inside and they're tripping and they're falling and then they get up and then they continue walking and they're falling and then they can't

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

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped his

00:35:07 --> 00:35:12

deal with it. He stopped his hook. He came down from the pulpit, and he went,

00:35:13 --> 00:35:21

and he carried on to the pulpit. And he again started his home. And he said, further along in number one.

00:35:25 --> 00:35:35

He said, Indeed, your wealth and your children's fitness, he quoted this. He said, I saw these two children walking and tripping and falling, and I could

00:35:37 --> 00:35:39

come down and pick them

00:35:40 --> 00:35:40


00:35:42 --> 00:35:42

along the Sunday.

00:35:46 --> 00:35:49

You see the humaneness of Prophet Muhammad, Allah.

00:35:50 --> 00:35:53

Have you seen a more human sight than this?

00:35:54 --> 00:35:56

purely human, he could not help.

00:35:58 --> 00:35:59

himself he is giving.

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

He is the leader. For Allah sake. He didn't think about what people will say in his reputation, and God knows what he saw his two grandsons and out of his pure love for them and human nature he could love but stop himself and go and take them and help them. In stark contrast to

00:36:20 --> 00:36:21


00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

could not even kiss his children.

00:36:25 --> 00:36:30

He went to the salon and he said, You kiss your children. And he was surprised.

00:36:31 --> 00:36:32

He said to him,

00:36:35 --> 00:36:39

the one who doesn't have mercy, will not have mercy from Allah upon him.

00:36:41 --> 00:36:52

And Prophet Muhammad this paper was was amazed. As if, how can you it's the opposite. How can you not kiss your children? How can you not show affection to your children, he said to

00:36:54 --> 00:36:57

children, I haven't kissed any Subhanallah

00:36:59 --> 00:37:02

human nature, to have this human affection in

00:37:04 --> 00:37:15

fitness, brothers and sisters, think about these two is every time you have a decision, the pleasure of Allah, or the pleasure of my wife, or my husband or my children.

00:37:17 --> 00:37:46

Always choose the pleasure of Allah. And this choice will come to you maybe on a daily basis. Remember always to choose Allah and the Messenger of Allah and Allah, Allah wa salam, don't let your wife or your husband or your children or your wealth distract you, from obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and from Vicus and from Quranic recitation, and so on. Once they become a distraction

00:37:47 --> 00:37:51

and they are not helping you to religiosity be where

00:37:52 --> 00:37:53

you have to do something about

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


00:38:03 --> 00:38:07

forsaken, when I will put your hand up see

00:38:14 --> 00:38:28

Sophia, Allah as much as you are able and listen and obey and stand in the way of Allah, it is better for yourself, and whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul. It is those who will be the successful.

00:38:30 --> 00:38:32

So fear Allah as much as you are able to

00:38:34 --> 00:38:38

look at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Now you can live alone.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:43

Allah does not burden a soul beyond its capacity.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:48

Fear Allah as much as you are able, Allah

00:38:50 --> 00:38:57

does not ask you to do something which is beyond your capacity. One time, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he saw a man

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

being carried, carried meaning that he is relying on their shoulders

00:39:08 --> 00:39:10

and they are walking him and they are doing

00:39:11 --> 00:39:19

and it was hot and it was difficult and so on. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said Allah is not needed of this man punishing himself.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:39

Allah was not Virgina. So beyond its capacity, Allah does not ask us to do something beyond our capacity. Now, when we strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala seeking His pleasure and fatiguing ourselves in the way of Allah subhanaw taala but what beyond our capacity,

00:39:40 --> 00:39:50

then it is okay. But once this is going to cause you harm, then Allah subhanaw taala does not ask us this.

00:39:52 --> 00:39:52

As when

00:39:54 --> 00:40:00

Prophet Muhammad SAW, like a string or a rope in the masjid and he said

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

And what is this? They said it's a rule for saying that Allah Allah when she gets tired of them, she uses the rope to get back up panela fatiguing themselves for Allah azza wa jal at the same time, you have to

00:40:16 --> 00:40:19

wonder and admire.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:23

They're sacrificing themselves for a loss part of that.

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

He said,

00:40:27 --> 00:40:31

remove it, remove this rope. Why he said,

00:40:33 --> 00:40:39

Let someone only worship Allah as long as they are able to and they have the strength to

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

and Allah azza wa jal phases in Allah Allah.

00:40:45 --> 00:40:57

Allah subhanaw taala will not, in other words leave you or because getting bored is not applicable to Allah subhanaw taala but when you will get bored, then Allah, Allah is not in need of this.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:01

Worship Allah subhanaw taala where you have the strength.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:14

But then you say what about the people we spoke about last time we used to pray the whole night maybe they didn't get tired, they got cleared, but they didn't get bored. They didn't get to the level of

00:41:16 --> 00:41:17

making mistakes in the door.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:26

Right. I mean, it comes to such a level someone gets hired in worship or they start saying the wrong

00:41:27 --> 00:41:32

there may be making upon themselves and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him for being this

00:41:34 --> 00:41:39

Nikola Mr. Fear Allah as much as you are able.

00:41:44 --> 00:41:46

Are you beating me to the point I want to make?

00:41:49 --> 00:41:49


00:41:51 --> 00:41:51

Baraka Luffy

00:41:54 --> 00:41:55

colors differed

00:41:56 --> 00:41:57


00:41:58 --> 00:42:03

these two verses. Some scholars said this is this is

00:42:04 --> 00:42:05


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


00:42:09 --> 00:42:11

is NASA for the previous

00:42:12 --> 00:42:19

but other scholars said no. And one of them has talked to me. And he said this is referring to this specific

00:42:22 --> 00:42:34

meaning he's talking about the wives and husbands and children and well being a distraction and a dissuasion. So he's saying fear Allah as much as you're able to in this situation.

00:42:35 --> 00:42:59

And don't let them distract you from Allah. This is the meaning. And he said the other is his sound and it is not abrogated fear Allah as he deserves to be feared. In other words, do your best to fear Allah subhanaw taala as he deserves to be feared, in other words, trying to fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and indeed, fearing Allah and faith is a lifelong journey.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:13

Listen, listen meaning listen to the commands of Allah, listen to the Quranic recitation because they sent

00:43:15 --> 00:43:16

that the smoly had the Quran

00:43:19 --> 00:43:21

don't listen to this Quran and start

00:43:23 --> 00:44:03

making conversation or vain speech during that time so that they would not listen to the Holy Quran. Allah is telling you listen, listen to the Quran. Listen to the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala. Listen to the, the inspiration of Allah, whether in the Quran or the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, and then the natural consequences and obey, listen and obey and spend in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Many commands in the Noble Quran telling us to spend in the way of philosophy, because it is one of the greatest deeds and especially in this month, when Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was most generous,

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

heavenly and physical

00:44:07 --> 00:44:08

and spending

00:44:10 --> 00:44:23

in the way of Allah, it is better for yourselves and physical. You are not only doing good to the one you are spending, you are doing good to yourself first brothers and sisters, by saving yourself from hellfire

00:44:25 --> 00:44:31

and physical, it is higher for you is good for you in the dunya and in the end, in the

00:44:33 --> 00:44:34

woman you

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

and whoever is protected from the stinginess of the soul. It is those who will be the successful.

00:44:46 --> 00:44:48

Notice he says, Woman You

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

see galaxy,

00:44:51 --> 00:44:55

the one who is protected from of course we are required

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

to cleanse ourselves stinginess.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:09

But at the same time, it is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal woman you should have us and the one who is protected from the stringent it means,

00:45:10 --> 00:45:25

seek the assistance of Allah to protect yourself from the stinginess of your soul. Because Allah is the one who helps us to protect ourselves from the stinginess, he is the main assistance he is the one

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

who helps us to purify that soul of diseases and one of them is should

00:45:33 --> 00:45:37

you say what isn't necessarily a disease yet. The other it says

00:45:41 --> 00:45:43

almost as if it is a

00:45:45 --> 00:45:50

part and parcel of the characteristics of the soul.

00:45:52 --> 00:45:57

stinginess, in every way. So he says, Woman Who kushwaha Nuptse he

00:45:59 --> 00:46:00


00:46:01 --> 00:46:07

a great blessing of Allah subhanaw taala to be protected from the stinginess of our souls.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:10

We just finished the

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


00:46:19 --> 00:46:31

Honey, if you loan Allah, a goodly loan, he will multiply it for you and forgive you and Allah is most appreciative and forbearing many commands in the Quran that

00:46:32 --> 00:46:58

Allah subhanaw taala does Allah require anything from you? Do you own this money, my dear brother and my sister will Allah you do not? This is ownership of Allah azza wa jal, this money is the money of Allah, and Allah has just given us to you and me, you our successors in that money. But it is the money of Allah Subhanallah Kiara, this Lord

00:46:59 --> 00:47:00

who gave us this money

00:47:02 --> 00:47:04

and they'll ask us to loan him off.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:09

Loan Allah meaning that it will come back to you.

00:47:10 --> 00:47:38

This is the idea of a loan is it not that it's coming back to you just slowly to Allah is going to collect for you in many, many multiples. Who does that for you here in this dunya? No one but Allah and if someone doesn't here in the dunya it is very probable very possibly Riba. It is not permissible. But Allah wills to place it for you, in her land, in reward in the great rewards of paradise.

00:47:42 --> 00:47:49

What else he forgives your sins? Well, Allahu Halleen Subhanallah Quran, he is shocked. What is

00:47:50 --> 00:47:52

the most grateful Grateful for what's

00:47:54 --> 00:48:04

grateful for what have we done any good for Allah subhanaw taala is it something that is helping Allah is so grateful because he gives you so much when you give them some little?

00:48:06 --> 00:48:16

You come towards Allah when he comes towards you, many steps you go, Thomas, walking, he comes to you quicker. This is Allah,

00:48:17 --> 00:48:33

the most grateful you give so little, and he gives you so much. And this is when we this is what we say about people when you give someone something or you do a small favor, and they're so grateful and thankful. Oh thank you so much. And yes, you're, you're you're so kind and you you have

00:48:34 --> 00:48:43

your food chain in me because of this and so on. They're so grateful even though you might see that what you have done this something small. Allah azza wa jal is

00:48:45 --> 00:48:55

gives you so much for so little that you do paradise itself as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said no one enters it with their deeds, but only by the mercy of Allah says Allah may Allah have mercy on us

00:48:59 --> 00:49:02

that he loves his hockey team.

00:49:03 --> 00:49:43

Helene hadn't been before Barrick. He is the One Who forgives and he is the one who pardons and overlooks, then he said Knower of the unseen and witness the Exalted in Might the wise, he ends it with these beautiful qualities of Allah azza wa jal, which help us to listen, and to obey, and to give up the words that Allah subhanaw taala gave us when you remember that Allah is Knower of the unseen, and the witness, everything he sees, everything is equal to him. Nothing is more in him than something else, as it is for you and me, everything to him, his shahada,

00:49:45 --> 00:49:59

meaning to you, but there's no hype for Allah. In fact, he is the only Knower of the unseen and he will have your shahada and Hakeem they Exalted in Might the one defeats and can never be the same.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:36

It is the most strong, the most honorable, this is Allah subhanaw taala, unpacking the most wise, and we mentioned the importance of the juxtaposition of those two lanes, in that he is as he is, he is honorable, he is strong. He is glorified and exalted in life. But all of that honor and glory and light is not a reason for him to be unwise while he is the most wise. He's the only one who can combine these two beautiful qualities in perfect equilibrium life with wisdom

00:50:38 --> 00:50:52

except from you, and me and this is the end of surah Taha May Allah azza wa jal accepted from us and all praises due to Allah Who has helped us to finish the surah Allah Allah subhana, Allah, Allah, masha Allah

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

just so you can move outside
