Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
So now, I know human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala so you know, Imam you know, have you been able to hang on early he was stalking me here with
Subhanak Allah and Montana in Montana in Montana Hollywood Hakeem from Beshara and sundry ways silly. family surname. Holy, what are the highlights on we wish she could carry mama, mama take a hammer off I mean,
but recognize your Quran Allah who you know wouldn't be a guru and I mean, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah nano run Namshi human Korea, Mattia, Pamela, Amelia and then Jana and you will recall, we praise Allah Almighty and send prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I witnessed that there is no God worthy of worship but Allah Almighty and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave Servant and Messenger.
Glory be to You, Oh Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us in the new RV, all knowing the all wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our ears, and our eyes and our brains and our hearts to the Noble Quran and to make it an argument for us, and not against us on the Day of Judgment. And to make it an intercessor on our part on the Day of Judgment in sha Allah, the brothers come together so that our hearts can come closer often Shall
we continue with the receipt of Surah to dream.
And we finished essentially the story of the prohibition of what Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah prohibited for himself
why it happened? And what were some of the lessons that we drew from that story, and from the fact that Allah subhanaw taala put that story in his eternal book.
And the last verse that we have discussed is the one concerning Allah subhanaw taala telling the wives of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam that if he were to divorce you Allah azza wa jal would replace him with
better wives, and then give them many great attributes and how the fact that Prophet Muhammad wa sallam did not divorce them shows us that they weren't the best wives he could have had, and they were the best women of this dunya and thus Allah subhanaw taala chose them for his blessing. Messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the next verse,
the verses that we read in the prayer
now we'll do
All you have believed protect yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is people and stones over which are appointed angels, harsh and severe. They do not disobey Allah in what He commands them, but do what they are commanded
their brothers and sisters.
comes immediately after the story of the prohibition and the advice
Allah subhanaw taala gave to Prophet Muhammad wa Salam to the wives of Mohamed Salah and to the whole ummah.
Those first verses were verses of
specific instructions to the most noble and greatest household on the earth. And that is the household of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and telling us a little about what went on there.
And now this is a general
instruction to all of the houses of the believers. So the first is specific to the greatest and most noble household which we should take as an as an example. And now the more general instruction to the whole Ummah, about their households, and their families and their relations.
this is the way Subhan Allah, this is the way Allah subhanaw taala reminds us in the Quran, he always gives us the example of the best
In the worst, to be as far away from the worst and as close as possible to the best and the best in this Prophet Muhammad, Allah, and the companions and those with them. And now in his wisdom, He gives you the general instruction about your own families.
Oh, you have believed repentance, and all you have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire, whose fuel is people and stones.
This is one of the greatest verses
that instructs us to look after ourselves and our families.
And there are others. But this is one of the greatest and the most scary, because it goes straight to the point. And it says to those who have believed open your ears and your hearts, to what Allah azza wa jal is about to tell you protect yourselves and your families from a fire.
It's instructive and interesting that there's no specific instruction, such as, establish the prayer or give us a guide and so on. These instructions are available in other verses, but here he goes straight to the point, protect yourselves and your families from a fire. And then the rest of the verse is a description of that firewall. But the main message is protect yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is people and stones to the end of the versus
the natural question is
how do we protect ourselves and our families from the fire? How do I protect myself from the fire?
And if I can protect myself from the fire? How do I protect myself, my family from the fire, when the instruction is clearly established prayer or give zakat,
or lower your gaze and so on? It may be clear, but it may have been unclear for some of the companions. What exactly this verse mean, telling us to protect them from a fire? How do you protect them from the fire?
How, tell me?
How do you protect protecting yourself, obviously protect you and your family? Because I can't I can't work on their behalf. Right? I can't pray on their behalf. So what can I do for them?
Excellent. This is other than that.
I want to know for now, Luca is obligatory upon the whole home and to the furthest from you from people you have no idea about we have never seen you see them doing something wrong and unless you go politely and gently and try to correct it.
Or try to find someone that knows them, who they have confidence in and tell them they were doing this and this or whatever it may be.
and joining good and forbidding evil is an obligation upon all of us to defer this from us.
Then the ones who are most deserving of that obligation
are our families, our kidney after them and so on. But your immediate family first, your wife,
your husband, your children. These are your immediate family, your parents, your brothers, your sisters, your grandfathers, your grandmothers, your grandsons, your granddaughters.
These are the ones who are most deserving of this instruction and this obligation and thus, protection from the hellfire. So how to protect them from the Hellfire by teaching them everything good. And this is why there are narrations
on the authority of Serena Ali. May Allah be pleased with him.
That he said that the meaning of this is teach them what is good for them in the dunya and
give them at them.
Teach them at them. And that's why it's narrated. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said that no father can give their children anything better than good manners, teaching them good manners.
In this way you protect them from
the fire from a great fire whose fuel is people and stones, their brothers and sisters.
The closeness of family
sometimes makes it difficult for us to perform this obligation.
Right? Our love for them.
And their love for us may make it difficult sometimes to perform this obligation and this
Here's why the verse is so harsh, so that it can
prepare us for that obligation. And to fulfill that obligation no matter how difficult it may be.
This verse is so important, it was so important before, it is so important now, and it may even be more important now. And in the future, as corruption continues to increase, and the work situation only becomes more difficult. And it becomes more and more difficult for a Muslim to implement the instructions of the religion in such a time, such an open society and open world for all practical purposes.
Anything you want, you can get anything you want to see anything you want to do anything. You can do it now it's most easy.
corruption is rampant, the people who are holding on to the truth, and teaching others that truth are few.
So it becomes even more important to protect yourselves and your families from this fire.
My dear brothers and sisters,
I asked you,
if one of us saw our children,
or our wife or husband or those people that we love the most. If you see them walking and they're about to fall into a ditch lit with fire, what would you do? By Allah you wouldn't jump? You would throw yourself in that fire and
push them away? Would you not? If you see your little kid about to put their finger on the fire? Or on the stove? What would you do? You lose your brain and you jump in and try to protect them and save them? This is the fire of this dunya so what do you think of the fire from
May Allah protect us from it?
You and I are so quick to protect them in their dunya do you care about their ACA
nowadays people only think and care about the dunya. And they show their love and their endearment through the dunya. You may even give them something which is haram.
You may buy them a gift, maybe which is something not good or impermissible. But the father or mother is doing it as a step or a symbol of their love or endearment for their child.
Because the dunya is all that matters to us now. But believe me my dear brothers and sisters, there is no real love
between families. If that love does not include care for their final adult, that is real love.
You may stop them from doing certain things in the dunya This is because you love them and you care for them to be in the best place in the ACULA in the Hereafter. This is the real love otherwise everyone
can do what is required in this dunya everything is based on relations of dunya even loving what we think is loving for the sake of Allah as many scholars said.
It's actually not loving for Allah. It's actually loving of our interests. I say to you, I love you for Allah. But Henry ality, I love you because you're doing something good for me. And I'm doing it back to you. It's all based on dunya even when sometimes it seems as if it is love for Allah. May Allah azza wa jal help us to love each other for Allah sincerely. But most people, it's all about worldly interest. And the second you can no longer help me Subhanallah I no longer love you for Allah.
Loving for Allah means loving for you the best in your hereafter. Some people think maybe Subhanallah maybe I shouldn't wake my child up for for Fajr prayer, let them they're tired, let them sleep. And I think that I'm helping them, right? Because I'm caring for their dunya let them sleep. Let them enjoy themselves, let them relax. Even though your child may be a teenager.
And Allah azza wa jal has obligated upon them. The parent is this real lump? When you say no, no, no, I have an affection at heart. I'll let them sleep Subhanallah No, you're not affectionate, because Allah azza wa jal will punish them for the prayer that they missed. And you know that
when you allow your son or your daughter to be punished in front of you,
but you allowed it and it will happen in an Acura. So what kind of superficial love is this? So the real love is to care for them in the dunya and to care about where they will be in an Acura.
Some of the parents may say the same about their daughters and she jumped
Young she's 17.
She's 17. Well, let's village up, let her enjoy herself. Let her flaunt her beauty our
brothers and sisters, save yourselves and your families from a firehose fuel is people in stones. This is why this verse comes to give us that incentive to care about our families and our children, and so on, and to care for them in the Acura as well as the dunya dunya is done.
If you don't care for them, even in the dunya, then there are problems, but most probably you care for their dunya care also further.
Notice he says, protect yourselves first.
Because if you don't protect yourselves from the fire, how can you protect your family?
If you cannot protect yourself? How can you venture to protect your family to the sheet layer? If you don't have something you can give it to someone else? How do you protect them from the fire? You create fear in the hearts of that fire?
How do you create fear in the hearts of that fire if you don't have that fear of the fire, or if you don't act as if you fear that fire. You can only give it to them if you have it yourself. So when you work on yourself, and you attempt and do everything in your effort to protect yourself from that fire, you can help your families to protect them from that fire also.
And this is why
the only one of the wisdoms were Allahu Allah of this iron is that to teach your families, your wives, your husband's your children and so on. Teach them fear of Allah subhanaw taala and fear of hellfire and hope for Paradise, teach them these issues of hackneyed
issues that concern the faith. In other words, don't just teach them to obey Allah subhanaw taala. And to avoid these prohibitions, by giving them worldly benefit.
That's okay as an incentive, but don't make it the end all. If you pray, Fudger they leave the next week, I'm gonna give you this, fine, this is an incentive. But don't make that the only way of teaching.
Similarly, when you forbid them from doing something, don't make the only reason for that some worldly benefit, such as
if you don't go and do or if you don't lie to me. This is good for you. Because later on, you will learn honesty and if you learn honesty, you will be successful in your life.
That's true. But that should not be the only incentive. There's a much more important incentive. You should wear the hijab, my dear daughter because it protects you and it protects your modesty. Excellent, definitely. That's not the only reason
we lack teaching them faith and teaching them about the actual teach them that there is a fire whose fuel is people and stones will have a biller and you and I should protect ourselves from it. When you pray, my dear son, you're protecting yourself from the fire of Allah subhanaw taala the greatest punishment when you pray on time, Allah subhanaw taala will take you to paradise Inshallah, teach the faith. When you fulfill the obligations of Allah, you are pleasing the One who created you, and the one who has most favor upon you teach them to fear Allah subhana wa taala. And this is what Prophet Muhammad wa sallam used to do.
And this is what he did with Saint Abbas of the Allah on Houma, who is still a child they use that time. And he is saying to them, he's saying to him that I'm going to teach you some words, where the wisdom of Allah
in other words, be mindful of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah will protect you.
You see, if you are mindful of Allah subhanaw taala you will find him in front of you. In other words, He will be with you all the time and so on. He was teaching them he was teaching him even our best though he used to use these issues of aqidah of faith, believing in Allah subhanaw taala do not belittle your children's capacity.
Too many people belittle their children's capacity, you do not know how smart your children are, and how much they can pick up. You and I if you and I are using whatever it is then 15 20% of our brains and our capability. It means we have so much more your children have a lot. You'd be surprised and I'm sure your children have surprised you with certain questions with certain you know realizations and so on. Teach them these things.
Speech of people who Allah subhanaw taala isn't what He requires and what pleases Him and so on.
This is what Prophet Muhammad
Salah was teaching with us and the same Hadith. In the end of the Hadith, he teaches them about Allah Subhan Allah, He tells him know very well that the whole Ummah comes together, and collaborates to try to harm you in something that Allah has not written for you it will not happen, who has taught their seven year old or 10 year old,
this concept and if they tried to help you or they tried to benefit you with something that Allah has not written for you it will not happen and so on.
Teach them fear of Allah subhanaw taala hope for the mercy and paradise of Allah and fear of the hellfire and punishment of Allah subhanaw taala and you and I know that this is the best discipline, and this is the best policeman because when you when he goes up or she goes up, you cannot be with them 24 hours and we live in a difficult society and an open society and you know very well what they are being exposed to, and you cannot monitor them or be with them 24 hour the best thing that you can give them is fear of Allah subhanaw taala and this is why many of the setup and advice generation sent commenting on this is teach them feel Allah, teach them taekwon law. Teach your
families and your children and so on. Teach them fear of Allah azza wa jal because that will go with them wherever they go. And eventually your children will leave you.
They will get married and they might move away and they go to universities and so on. You won't be with them at that time. Who is no policeman at that time you were great policemen when they were there. If you were a great policeman, many fathers and mothers are not unfortunately, they let the child free do whatever they want go on the internet as they please go and befriend whomever they please Subhanallah and then this has happened. And then they come after many years or shareholder scholar please I lost my son I lost my daughter. They're totally gone. They're you know they have deviated and so on What do you expect? So you may have been a good or a bad policeman when they were
in your house. But what about later what happens then? There is nothing like the fear of Allah subhanaw taala to discipline a child
who and Fusco honeycomb now
protect yourselves and your families from a fire hose fuel is people and stones will add to
the fuel of the work we fire is wood. We haven't heard about fire was fuel is stones and people well I add to the law and this shows you the the greatness of this fire may Allah azza wa jal protect us from it. Protect yourselves first My dear brothers and sisters and fear Allah and obey Him and avoid his poor ambitions and then teach that to your families and you will have protected yourself from this fire well you have to
know Naraku Johannes will see ya.
to rely on she that
the fuel is people and stalls. Human beings are the fuel of this fire. Of course, the human beings we deserve this fire and they are the ones who will be eternally in that fire and they are the disbelievers. I lay it on the Hill album she had over which are appointed angels harsh and severe.
Irrelevant she didn't.
Scholars differ over these meanings. And they've given sometimes even opposite meanings, it could
it could be both it could go both ways really could refer
to their harshness in their hearts.
Harsh in their heart. They have a harshness in their heart, severe She had severe in their treatment of the people of the fire.
The opposite was also narrated relogged, meaning their bodies
So the first one refers to the heart. The second meaning it could refer to the bodies, that their bodies are very great. They have an amazing build. Some narrations mentioned that
it would be take many this many years of flight just between their shoulders. This is the greatness of these angels.
The images of Allah subhanaw taala are very great.
And even if those narrations are not necessarily authentic, you can get that meaning
from another way
and that is the fact that the people of hellfire themselves, therefore, is very great as the authentic hadith tell us that they could fall in hellfire that their tooth
merely their tooth
can be the size of the mountain of offered. Allahu Akbar.
Their giant giants in the hellfire, and you can imagine millions and millions of people burning in that fire with those sizes. How big is hellfire? Allahu I
don't think it's something small.
Hellfire is great. It has 70,000
And there are 70,000 angels at each of those grabs. That's approximately 5 billion angels just to bring Hellfire what Gee Are you eating be Jahannam young married couple in Santa Ana Who's that on that day Hellfire will be brought that bringing is great. May Allah azza wa jal protect us from it.
So if we could fall or that big,
and there are many years of distance of flight between their shoulders than you can imagine the angels who are guarding that hellfire, surely they will be stronger than those correct?
They will be stronger than the ones they are punishing. That's the wisdom behind it. And this is why when the kuffaar have always heard that the number of angels
on Hellfire or how many
know the guards? 19 I know you had this question. There are 19 upon it, right? They are the gods of hellfire. These angels when the kuffaar heard this, they started scoffing, 19. That's all. So one of themselves. One of the strong ones. I'll take 17 and you take the other two, when you
look at the their disbelief, how they mock and they will see
the result of their walking on the Day of Judgment. They will see they thought that these are angels looking like them. Or as weak as them they don't know these angels rely on she that they are harsh and severe. They're great insights. They're harsh. They have harshness in their hearts, that will that Allah azza wa jal gave them so that they can be able to punish those who deserve his punishment, and they are severe in the way they treat them. Right. You will know you
need to handle
that on the day they will be pushed violently towards hellfire. Partly because they are scared stiff of the hellfire and partly because this is what they deserve.
On the day of judgement about Allah azza wa jal to protect us from it. So these are the angels that are guarding Hellfire nine pin grape angels that Allah azza wa jal made that way in his wisdom, so that they would be able to punish his servants the punishment that they deserve. I know you have a kitten.
and this is why brothers and sisters
after this, he said last one Allah Allah Allah
this itself is now praise for the angels. Why? Because it may come to our minds. When we hear about the harshness and the severity of these angels.
There develops between us and them dislike and this is haram.
So Allah azza wa jal then praises them.
Allah azza wa jal made them harsh and severe, so that they can punish his slave server for punishment that they deserve.
And if he kept it at that, then maybe you would find something in your heart against them well or you have to be.
So he says last one, Allah Amato, they do not disobey Allah and what He commands he commanded them and they are obedient to Allah azza wa jal, and this is the best praise.
And they do what they are commanded. Also, what we benefit from this
is that if this believers thought for a second, that they can convince these angels of luck punishing them
who knows you you don't know what they're thinking Subhanallah I mean, they are the ones who scoff at the number 19 And nine
been made dimensioning of the number was a fitna as Allah as urgent said Quran
it was it's a tribulation for them and therefore this is the way they fought as if they are going to wrestle the angels, and then they will protect themselves from the hellfire.
They couldn't be further from the truth.
So now similarly, if they thought that maybe they can bribe the angels, this is the way they think. They think things are in Alaska or like in dunya. Maybe they can bribe them. Maybe they can run some themselves. And this is why Allah azza wa jal tells us Quran that there is no ransom in the name Jasmine Can you give me the
very famous had repeats itself.
You can bring it to me next time shallow homework.
There is no ransoming on the Day of Judgment. There is no Shaha there's no intercession for those disbelievers. You cannot convince these angels up disobey Allah subhanaw taala lair Soon Allah Allah Allah who will if
they do not disobey Allah subhanaw taala in what He commands them. Now, it may seem to some that there is repetition in these two phrases. Last one, Allah azza wa jal, but it is not the case.
The meaning of Allahu Allah
is they do not disobey Allah and what He commands and they do what they are commanded.
One is referring to negating disobedience. And one is confirming obedience. And you can
avoid this obedience.
But you can also avoid obedience, you can avoid the prohibitions of Allah subhanaw taala, but you are not necessarily doing what he commended.
For them, Allah azza wa jal is negating any disobedience. And disobedience usually involves
disobedience of the heart first, refusal,
a spiritual refusal of
accepting the commandment of Allah subhanaw taala.
He prohibited something and there is a some kind of refusal in my heart to follow that some kind of rebelliousness in my heart or transgression that would then this allow me of doing what he has told or avoiding his prohibition. This Allah assertion has negated layoffs when Allah Allah Allah
will follow now,
they do what they are commanded, it means they do what they are commanded in the best way.
So you see, the two phrases give you two different meanings, beautiful meanings. One, they have no rebelliousness, they do not disobey Allah subhanaw taala.
The other they do what they are told to immediately and in the best way. And another possible meaning is that they cannot do except what they are told, they cannot do anything on their own way of Hello, now, you don't get that meaning from the previous one. And there is a similar idea. This is better homework. There is a similar idea
that gives you these meanings that I just gave you now, I want you to find it
about the angels, and it gives you these two meanings. One, it negates this obedience.
And I'll give you a hint it negates arrogance.
And the other says that they are doing what they are told.
And it gives you those two beautiful meanings also.
And some scholars did say that the repetition, there is repetition between them and the meaning is similar. And it is for extra confirmation that they only do what they are taught
Hellfire My dear brothers and sisters, whose situation is this is very deserving of us that we run away from it and flee away from it to the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala as quickly as possible. So he gave you its attributes, its fuel as people have installed upon it, are these harsh and severe angels of great form, and harshness in their hearts and severity in their treatment of the people of hellfire. And they only do what they are told. In other words don't have any hope that you will escape Hellfire unless you put
Protect yourself volunteer in this dunya
this hellfire, my dear brothers and sisters, this is something so great that when it will be brought and when it exhales we know Hellfire has an exhalation right? That when it exhales, everyone will jump to their knees out of fear, including the Prophet and even Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam,
they will fall to their knees out of fear
because of when it makes that sound, this great sound
and this is why Allah subhanaw taala said in
Surah Al Furqan
really any verses that that really should shake us?
when it the Hellfire sees them from a distant place, they will hear its fury and roaring.
This is verse 12, and sort of either Itami McCarren buried semi
They will hear its fury and roaring this rowing is the acceleration Zefiro. And when they are thrown into a narrow place they're in bound in chains, they will create cry they're out there upon for destruction. They will be told Do not cry this day for one destruction, but cry for much destruction.
The crime for destruction for what of themselves. destroy us, oh Allah.
It is better for us. And it will be told to them cry for much destruction not once. keep on crying for destruction. It will not benefit you.
This is Hellfire My dear brothers and sisters,
Allah azza wa jal protect us from it. These angels are harsh and severe, they will only add to the regret of the people in that hellfire.
And this is why in the other eye or they say they will call out to Malik. Whenever we are letting the
book call in a comeback. If
they will cry out Oh Malik, let your Lord destroy us.
And he will reply, you will remain in
these angels do not disobey Allah subhanaw taala and they are only punishing by the commands of Allah subhanaw taala and these people are only being punished because they deserve it. Because Allah the Most Merciful, only punishes if they deserve that punishment and Allah azza wa jal Does, does not wrong, a soul or anything. Because Allah subhanaw taala is the just
they deserve the punishment of hellfire. Protect yourselves and your families from that fire from this great fire. At least brothers and sisters, if you're not gonna protect them from that fire more than you protect them from the work we fire, at least let it be comparable to that.
If we start protecting ourselves, and our children and families, from hellfire, like we protect them from the fire of this dunya
it's a good first step.
But of course, there should be no comparison between the two.
Our thoughts should be about mainly about them. Protect them by teaching them Islam, teaching them love of Allah, love of Prophet Muhammad wa salam, love of the Quran, love of obedience to Allah and hatred for the disobedience of Allah, love for those who obey Allah and hate for those who disobey Allah subhanaw taala teach yourselves, your wives, your husband and your children this, teach them about Allah subhanho wa Taala teach them about their religion, they are an obligation and a responsibility upon your shoulders and Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, every one of you
every one of you, is a shepherd. Shepherd meaning that you have some sheep to take care of
your family you must take care of and they are under your responsibility. Everyone is a shepherd and everyone who will be asked about that which that was put under their responsibility. The man in his home,
the wife in her house and with her children, they are all responsible and they will be asked about their responsibility. You will be asked my dear brother and my dear sister, what did you do for your families
when you saw them doing that, which displeases
last panel data, did you guide them? Did you teach them you advise them. Of course this doesn't mean that you should jump on them and you should obligate them and force them.
But you should care about them enough to teach them and to advise them. And when you advise them, do it in the best way, and teach them in the best way. And therefore make Islam beloved to them. And similar to this iron is reversed. Well, Allah subhanaw taala told Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
what more halacha masala tea was standard eylea.
Command your family
with prayer was stubborn. And be extremely patient with that with what?
With your commanding of your family in prayer, because that may be difficult. Maybe they refuse. Maybe you find that you tell your child once or twice and three times and you find that sometimes they pray and sometimes they don't pray, and so on. Do you stop? Do you give up, never give up?
Allah subhanaw taala commanded Prophet Musa alayhis salam to go and guide the worst of the Pharaoh.
And he went to him and Allah azza wa jal commanded him to say to him, to go to him with gentle speech for Allah
Subhan Allah is speaking for out. So be gentle with your family, and do not despair, and teach them every day and remind them every day. Brothers and sisters, believe me there are people who did not use to pray.
And maybe you were reminding them
every now and then, and they never listened. And some people will disappear eventually and say, Oh, they'll ever pray. Subhanallah Allah.
From what I know, from what I heard from people, they kept on advising them
gently every time they never despair. Eventually they listened. And they started to pray and they are consistent in their pain. Don't despair.
Keep on doing it. One more alaka was Salatu was Salam ala Alia and this is why Prophet Mohammed Salim commanded the husband when they wake up in the middle of the night 4pm Get up and wake up your wife. And if you need to sprinkle water on her face, and he commanded the wife to do the same, but I don't recommend that the wives do it for them. And if their husbands tell them specifically not to do so, for any reason, they have work the next morning or something else, but in general, they are both obligated to help each other in obedience of Allah subhanaw taala and avoiding the disobedience of Allah's product. Therefore, another thing that we benefit from this is to make obedience easy for
your families and your children.
And this is where
Prophet Muhammad wa sallam told us Subhanallah
you should be careful or some of the companions without some of the companions used to do this, they would be careful what they order their children out of fear that their children would disobey and fall into the major sin of disobedience of their parents. So you yourself can help your child
practice their duty towards you, when you don't give them more than they can handle. Right.
In this way, you are helping them to be obedient. Also, help your children help your wife to be obedient to you. Don't ask her to do things she cannot do. Things that are beyond her capacity. Help her to be obedient to you. Protect her from this fire, protect yourself and your children from this fire. My dear brothers and sisters.
I mean, we can speak about this idea all day long. And this is why I wanted to
stop on it and to really benefit from it and take lessons and wisdom from it. Because we are only going through the Quran once we're not repeating. And there's so much that we can say we would continue but we have to continue to proceed. The last thing that I want to tell you is if you do not protect yourself from that fire, then what have you benefited from this dunya you have lost everything. And if you do not protect your family from this fire, when what have you done, you have lost everything. Brothers and sisters, we talk a lot today about success and failure about winning and losing know very well that the greatest loss
is losing yourself and losing your family on the Day of Judgment because this dunya is just
Again, it's a game and it's about to be over. It is just a short time and it's about to be over. And on the Day of Judgment, you will look back to the dunya as if it was a day that passed, as if it was a morning that pass or an afternoon.
If you lose yourself and your families on the Day of Judgment, you have lost everything. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Noble Quran, on Indian ha serene, and Medina has
an American who will
say that the losers in other words, the ultimate losers are the ones who lose themselves and their families on the Day of Judgment. Indeed, that is the clear loss, there is nothing worse.
Therefore, if you live in this dunya for this dunya and you only teach your families about this dunya and you don't protect them from this fire was people whose fuels people installed you have lost everything. And Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, fear Allah and he said protect yourself from the Hellfire even with a fraction of a day
just with a fraction of a date protect yourself from the fire give in charity and do what Allah subhanaw taala commanded
this area we read in another location or similar
not concerning the families concerning the fire
can you read it for us?
We found it.
Allah subhanaw taala tells us
when to fall back on now, a lot of good one as well Java or that little caffeine?
This speech is to whom?
Who is the speech to
nonbelievers? Why? Because just preceding it is a challenge to come up with the Quran, right? To come up with a chapter of the Quran like the Quran. And he says to them for inlanta follow, if you do not do so, and he will not do so.
This is the clear result.
then fear the Fire whose fuel is people and stones or that little caffeine? It has been prepared for the disbelievers
that speech is to the disbelievers. This speech is to the believers. It's very similar.
But will it true Muslim abiding Hellfire forever?
Yes or No?
Will a true genuine Muslim abiding Hellfire forever? Of course not. Never, as part of the agreement.
Hellfire is a permanent abode only for the disbelievers.
But that doesn't mean
that a true genuine Muslim may not be punished by Hellfire for sins that they have done.
Right, they will not abide there for forever, but they may be punished and purified by hymns.
And it's scary to think that this the same speech that was to the disbelievers and telling us that that fire is has been prepared for the disbelievers. Now the speech is coming to us what does this mean? Because some people may may say, Why do you talk about the hellfire and so this is to the disbelievers? Why are you talking to us as if we are disbelievers? No, my dear brothers and sisters, this is a reminder to us. And this is one of the verses that shows
that those some of the verses of the Quran are directed towards the disbelievers. That does not mean that the true and genuine and understanding an intellectual Muslim does not take a reminder from those verses.
The genuine Muslim takes him and remind themselves when they read those verses that are speaking to the disbelievers out of fear. Do you have a guarantee from Allah that You will not die in a state of disbelief? You and I do not have that guarantee of Allah
and the truly pious are afraid of dying in a state of
other than Islam, up to their deaths? Don't say no, I am guaranteed I pray my prayers in the masjid. No. There are other people who are as good as you if not better. And maybe they died in a state other than Islam, because of something sick in their hearts, which only Allah knew Allah azza wa jal purify our hearts, therefore, we do not have that guarantee. And this verse shows us that, indeed, we should be reminded of this. Yes, it has been prepared for the disbelievers. This Hellfire is the permanent abode for the disbelievers only, but it's a reminder for the believers and it kindles the fire of faith and fear of Allah and the fire in the heart of the believers. And it is, as Allah
subhanaw taala told us, it is
a place even for the Muslims, but it may be temporary, where they are punished for their sins and when they are removed from it and taken to paradise May Allah azza wa jal protects from therefore
protect yourselves and your families from this fire, protect yourselves from it My dear brothers and sisters, for instance,
one moment of punishment and hellfire will be
is enough to make you forget everything.
I don't say this of my own.
This is what your beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told you.
He is the one who told us that on the Day of Judgment, that
who enjoyed themselves most in this dunya
the one who enjoyed themselves most and rejoiced most and maybe have the most and possess the most in this dunya they will be dipped in the hellfire. This is the instant I was just telling you about the moment they will be dipped
and taken out.
And after they are dipped, they will be asked Have you ever seen anything good in your life? They will say no Oh Allah, Allahu Akbar. Dipping in this Hellfire was enough to make them forget everything that they enjoyed in the dunya well,
so protect yourselves and your families from this fire, even for one instant for this instant that that is being spoken about, that Allah azza wa jal protect me a new from it and keep this verse as a reminder always to you. When you find that you are finding difficulty
helping your families or enjoying good and forbidding evil in your family. When you find it is difficult. Go through this idea and remind yourself of it. And it will be in sha Allah and incentive for you to continue what you are doing of teaching them that which helps them and protects them from that fire. Then Allah subhanaw taala says,
Lavina Kefar Hola,
tongue down level.
Now the speech goes to the disbelievers or you have disbelieved.
Usually we read Allah azza wa jal speaking to the believers, yeah, you are living now. Yeah, you and Adina Kapha.
And it's almost like it's representative of what they are. Yeah, you have levena Cafaro it's a name for them. The ones who disbelieved the disbelievers. Yeah, even though the NACA follow letter I have given young Oh, you have disbelieved, do not apologize on this day.
Lack of you young.
This means what this means that they are apologizing on that day.
Are they not? They are
they are apologizing? They are seeking an excuse. They are asking and besieging Allah, Oh Allah.
Give us one more chance.
Give us one more chance and return us to the dunya and we will not do what we did. And they are liars as Allah azza wa jal proved in the novel Quran
by Allah after being punished and after seeing the hellfire and being punished in the hellfire and asking for another opportunity, if they are taken back to the dunya and given another opportunity by Allah, they will go back to what they used to do, because they are liars. Allah azza wa jal told us this
As we have spoken about before,
they will swear by Allah
that they did not associate partners with Allah subhana Kalam and they think these lives will help them in Alaska as it helped them in the dunya.
They will swear by Allah.
Oh Allah by Allah, we did not worship others besides Subhanallah
it will be told to them when they are being thrown into the fire, or you have disbelieved. Do not apologize today. Don't seek an excuse today, you are only being
given or you are getting, you are reaping that
what you earn
you are reaping what you have earned in this dunya Allah azza wa jal is not punishing you.
And he will not run you an atom's wait. This is all with what you have done in the dunya and therefore you deserve here in an ACCA. Brothers and sisters, it's also a reminder for us, all you who believed, protect yourselves and your families from this fire and know very well that no apology or excuse is there on the Day of Judgment. You cannot give any excuses or apologies, you will only be held accountable for that which you used to do.
Allah subhanaw taala wrongs no one was nothing wrong is not even an atom's weight.
In other words, it's perfect justice. What you are getting there is perfect justice. So he's telling the disbelievers do not apologize or seek an excuse here and today. It's enough, you have been given enough of a life
and you chose this place, you chose this place. And you wrote yourselves as inhabitants of this abode in the dunya. In two zones, welcome to a man who
do not regret. On the Day of Judgment, he's also basically telling them, don't regret, regret is useless on this day. Do not regret because the the time of regret as past, the time when regret is beneficial, is gone. And this is a reminder to us also brothers and sisters.
Regret only helps him
if you are feeling any regret in your heart now.
Then put for yourself a new ultimatum, what you're going to do what you're going to change.
If you are feeling any regret, let it be beneficial for you now, on your deathbed that regret will be useless. Crying on your deathbed is useless. The time has gone. Crying on the Day of Judgment. It's over. Time is up, you have had enough time left after the rule young. And this is immensely painful to the disbelievers merely this speech, this verse,
because when we do something wrong, and we know for a fact it's wrong,
and we feel guilty for it. The last thing we want is someone on our heads telling us what you did is wrong. Right?
When you have done something and you know it's a big mistake, it's a huge mistake, or it's a human sin.
It's all the more painful when someone is telling you, you are so bad, you are evil. How could you have done that? Don't you fear Allah and just going on and bashing you?
It becomes all the more painful. They will be there on the Day of Judgment. They know perfectly well. That what they have done is most wrong.
And they are hearing now and they are regretting and they're asking for another opportunity and they are being told, Don't apologize to do you don't regret. So it will be all the more painful to hear this.
And ultimately, the fact that they know full well on the day of judgment as good as you and me that what they did was so wrong. And so evil in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala where do we get this from the Noble Quran?
What Kylo loco Nana smell? I will not work on Homicide.
Who's saying this?
Who's saying this?
They will say that if we used to really listen, or we had any intellect, we would not be of the people of the Hellfire who's saying this. The people have a hellfire, then this will take this. The people who knew saw arguing
and maybe insulting Allah here they are saying, Woe to us. Had we really listened, had we had intellect we would not be able to people. It means they realize full well, what they have done
to him Well, I will say the Omega tuna.
Allah azza wa jal is praising their hearing and their sight. On the Day of Judgment. It means, on the Day of Judgment, they realize perfectly well, what they did was wrong.
As in the other eye on
the finger flat in Manhattan *a Schaffner Anca report aka for basato kellele Mahadeo.
That you were in heedlessness in the dunya of this of the accurate of the accountability and the barrier has been removed from your eyes. So your eyesight is like iron, it's piercing eyesight. You and I and the disbelievers will know exactly
how wrong we were to forget Allah subhanaw taala in the dunya in the eye
and the disbelievers and they will hear as an added punishment. Don't apologize or seek excuses today. You're only being given that what you deserve May Allah azza wa jal protect you and me and our families from hellfire. May Allah subhanaw taala accept from us a new version of equal welcome
any questions or comments?
disbeliever disbelievers they are
looking for love
is talking to them. Yes.
Reaching to my connectors working with me. Okay.
I thank you for your question. Because this is the point I make all the time. The Quran is full of speech to the disbelievers.
You cannot keep this away from them.
The hour cannot just be Oh Islam is beautiful and Islam is excellent. Please come to Islam and come and pray and Psalm Yes, very good. But there is speech in the Quran they need to see because it's for them.
You are living in a CAFO that happens.
It is said that the angels are the ones who say this the angels of punishment. Allahu Allah, Allah Allah,
who it is set by but it will be set to them on the Day of Judgment. They need to read this. Are you entering a capital? Yeah, Johanna Deena Otto kitab.
Oh, you who have been given the book.
This is for the Jews on the Christians. Take these verses to them, let them read it.
I believe one time.
You know, in the airport, sometimes they have those diaries in a place of worship, and then be a place for us Christians and Muslims altogether. Have you seen that before?
Even though you haven't seen it? Yeah. And they'll have a small diary and people will write things. So I wrote some of these verses. Because I want them to read them otherwise, how are you gonna bring it to them? We have to practice that our we have to call them to Islam.
You don't necessarily have to give them a Quran. This is not always the best idea. But you can show it to them. If you are sitting with them and you are showing them things in the Quran. Show them some of the verses where Allah azza wa jal speaks to them.
If you have already given them an idea
of paradise and hellfire, and that Allah graces the believers with paradise and punishes the disbelievers with hellfire and so on. Tell them there are verses that are speaking directly to you. They're not to you and me. Show them these verses. Whether it's the ones above those who disagree, whether it's ones that are describing some things about the Jews and the Christians, whether it is verses that are generally for Dawa also excellent verses that do not refer to you and me therefore to whom, to humanity. Yeah, you haven't us
are the joy
It is fear or the one that we say always in the hotwire you unless
I let it mean Epson ha ha ha
This is not only to you and me, this is to all of humanity go to the verses of Surah father
not the sort of father paid
six or seven
Yeah uns with Corona hammock Allah Allah, all mankind or humanity remember the favor of Allah upon you, excellent thickness to them. Remember the favor of Allah upon you? Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you? These things will shake them brothers and sisters, not just the Dawa, that we say, take the verses of Allah to them.
It may be much more effective than what you say.
Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the heaven on earth? There is no deity except Him. So how are you deluded? So as I'm speaking to them directly, and if they deny you already were messengers denied before you And to Allah return all veterans, all humanity indeed, the Promise of Allah is truth. So let not the worldly life delude you, and be not deceived about Allah by Satan, General Instructions.
Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you. So take him as an enemy, he only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze. Those who disbelieve will have a severe punishment, and those who believe and do righteous deeds will have forgiveness, and great reward, and so on.
You hear it in a different light, when you imagine that it's speaking directly to the disbelievers. Right. And there are many verses like this.
You and us, because Giacomo rasuna will become own humanity, that
the messenger has come to you, with the truth from your Lord. So believe and so.
So there's a lot of this and
we need to take it to them, this is part of the Dawa.
And this may be the best. And when you can
try to quote verses of the Quran, when they ask you a question,
it's stronger for you to show them the evidence from the Quran than to necessarily give them an answer unless they're not interested or they don't have the patience to listen or something else. But otherwise, give it to them.
Let them read the verses of the shaking of the mountains and the splitting of the heavens when they speak about
Jesus peace be upon him as being the son of God. Allah, Allah, you think anything you tell them will be a fraction of reading those verses, you know what the verses I'm talking about? Right? So that million
you think what you say will be a fraction? When they tell you why don't you believe Jesus is the Son of God? Or what's the problem of Jesus the Son of God? What Why do you make such a big deal of it?
Because your mouth and open source Mariama let them read the verses. And believe me, they have nothing to say them Be quiet.
Pick the verses of Allah to
this is part of the that's when
I will when it when he went to Prophet Muhammad wa salam, one of the great and one of the famous godfather of maca, and he was going with the instructions of his people. And he was offering things to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to leave the Dawa, and so on. And we'll give you whatever you please. And Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam is just listening. You and I probably would have stopped them. I don't want I don't want money. I don't want women. I don't want minister. I don't need anything from you. Be quiet, listen to them patiently. Then the liking for
them is listening. And all of it is garbage. He's just telling him garbage. We'll give you what you want. If you're sick, we'll we'll bring you doctors, and so on and so forth. And probably the House or Senate was listening. And then in the end, he didn't even interrupt him.
He said, Are you finished?
He even named him look at the respect or are we worried? Are you finished? Yes, I'm finished.
How do we learn and to shape our energy Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. hammy
and he started reciting sonnets for students straight. He didn't. He didn't
even deny his allegations. He didn't say anything. He went straight and he started reciting salat wa salam. And they kept on reciting and reciting Salallahu Alaihe Salam,
I would want you to stop, please. In other words, sonny, it's, it's starting to affect him, it's getting to him. And he went back to his people. And his people said Wallahi he went with a face and he came back with a different face. And he started telling them by Allah, this Quran is not poetry, this Quran is not magic, it is learning, it is not the words of human beings it cannot be and so on. Take the Quran to them as in systems the best
it can be because
we can differ and debate about the
prudence of that.
The Of course you cannot give them the actual Quran.
If they are an Arab, you cannot give them this Quran that you read, okay, it's prohibited, they cannot touch it, the translation will allow them they can, okay.
But even then,
don't make it your first step.
And this, we can argue it because there's nothing clear, but to Allahu Alem. From past trials from
If you just met this person, and you find that interesting, don't go and buy
for several reasons. Number one, they may not respect the Quran treated well.
And they may keep it in the bathroom, and they do things with it. Number two, when you don't give it to them, immediately you create suspense for them
to learn about
they may ask you for a Quran and you say, Yeah, and you try to say I'll give it to you. But give me some time because I want to, there are certain things I want to tell you about first, before I give you the Quran, you create suspense, and
you are magnifying Quran by this for them. Number three, the Quran is very difficult for someone who knows nothing about Islam.
The way it is here.
There are verses in the Quran, anyone can understand without any knowledge without any information about Islam. It's so clean. And this is the magnificence of the Quran. There are verses that speak to the the layman and people who know nothing. And there are verses that no one can understand except the intellectuals and amorphous sitting who teach it to people.
It has both this is part of the miraculousness of the Quran.
So he might open up to subtle Nakara and start reading some of the verses of divorce and get completely lost and close the book and say I don't need this right.
You and I have difficulty understanding some of the verses and assaulting Bukhara, or sort of Pollock, or many many of the chapters which are Madani chapters, right, but speak about the legislation and this whole deals that we have been doing the 28 pages full of fake right and jurisprudence and so on. may be very difficult for them to understand. So it may be a better idea
to give them something translated
on a piece of paper,
print for them one of the napkin chapters, such as circle MBM, right, or even sort of fact that like we just said, or half and or some of the napkin chapters that speak directly to them which they can, to a large extent understand, that don't have anything about rulings or fix or others printed for them on a piece of paper and say, read this, rather than giving them you know what I'm saying or choose for them certain excerpts and give, give it to them and say, Read these are printed for them. And maybe even a better idea, read surah Maryam are this part of sort of Miriam if they are Christian, right, or if they are a Buddhist or a Hindu or so on, give them some of the verses that
are speaking about the magnificence of Allah and how you should be worshipped with our partners. And some of the verses that are completely negating partners with Allah subhanaw taala are speaking about some of the idol worship and things like that, right, choose things and give it to them and let them read it. It might be a better idea. If
after a long time you feel this person is ready. They have the idea they respect the Quran, they will treat it right.
They will come to you and ask you when they read something they don't understand and so you might be comfortable giving them a copy of the Quran. Allah
