lot of follow
on so you know what you may or may not have even I was just a bit
early he'll be here with the woman said
to me Dean Subhana Allah, Allah Allah Maha lantana Lollywood Hakeem, but this roughly 30 ways to really determine the certainty of
a phrase a lot of mighty innocent things upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
his noble family, righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the Day of Judgment, Glory between you or Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the old knowing the online, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to the Noble Quran and to make an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment, and to make us of those whom he elevates within oval Quran, insha Allah
my brothers and sisters, I love you for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and I ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless
us to bless this gathering, and to make us of those
who implement the Quran in their lives and who live with the Quran
as it is supposed to be
the problem is that far away from the Quran
and the OMA doesn't understand the Quran. The OMA is not implementing the Quran,
it's time to come back to the Quran.
We left off last,
you can say in the last part of the surah
starting with the saying of Allah subhanaw taala we went through it will just summarize quickly
Xena, indeed it is We Who have sent down to your Mohamed Salah Salem the Quran progressively. We spoke about that last time, I just wanted to say a few things.
concerning that. It's, it's interesting how this comes immediately after all of the promises that came and all of these very specific descriptions of paradise.
All of it being part of the unseen. And you have to understand that this is being recited at a time when the pagans are mocking as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him saying Where did you get all of this from? And where is he talking about, you know, Paradise and all of these things which are part of the unseen world talking about,
you know, the rivers of Paradise and the springs and the eternal voice and, and the the silicon, the brocade and all of these amazing things. By the way. What's the difference between the Sonos and Istanbul? What's the difference between them?
Right, the Sonos is the subtype and the brocade is the thicker type, the thick silica that is being worn, that also gives the impression of greatness and
affluence and so on. Okay, so, all of with all of this, all of these promises and talk about paradise, this is all the rage. So where did you come up with all of this? Oh, Muhammad, where are you bringing all of this?
For where? What's your source
of knowledge and Purana, Xena, it is all coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala have no doubt about
the source of it.
The fact that this verse mentioned the coming of the Quran progressively.
And interestingly enough, what is the next day?
Right? Be patient
until the decree or the Command of your Lord
comes or arrives. This means
that this progressive nature with which the Quran has come to you, is going to be a source of help to you
in order to be patient until Allah subhanaw taala decrees with you will.
we know that the Quran coming progressively, the main purpose behind this is what
visa vie for
what are seen
as one of the disbelievers Why is in the Quran? Why was it revealed progressively to him for
some bizarre behavior? It is so so that we can make your heart firm. How
How does the Quran coming progressively make his heart firm
objections we're not supposed to construct practice.
one part maybe the the issue of rules, okay, and commands and
prohibitions and things like that. That may be part of it, at least
in the fact that when they were Aluna, they asked you about the following. And then the verdict comes down. Definitely this will make the heart but there's something else we're looking for him
coming progressively make his heart firm
all of the all of look at all of the different commands that are coming down. So I was telling him to become patients and to be patient, if it all came down as one
wouldn't have the effect. But every time something happens in his life, Salah the revelation comes
and soothes him, and solaces him be patient.
Every time he hears it, I mean, basically, for all practical purposes.
When you look at the private conversation to say no, Saudi Salam, Allah subhanaw taala, right, it happens once. One of that private conversation repeated itself once and twice and three times and four times. Every time the revelation of the Quran comes. It's Allah speaking to him directly, right? Me patients how many times
right? Didn't come all at once every time something would happen. Something would bother him SallAllahu Sallam Allah does will be patient, how can it not make it? Right? He tells them your story of Musa alayhis salam how many times Allah told them the story of Musa Of course every time with an added part or a small detail that didn't exist before. But it's
reminding him of the story. Again, be patient. It makes his heart firm. So the longer it gets further, something else.
this, what we're saying, in every instance incident that happens, some revelation that guides him, that is a light for him.
Follow up on how to act and to be patient, and so on. So immediately afterwards, Allah Most High tells him
first when the hook Nillumbik
the patient from the decision of your Lord, and do not obey from among them a sinner or ungrateful.
We spoke also last time about this and some of the possible meanings I just want to add to it.
The methods, my dear brothers and sisters, the methods and ways and tools of the disbelievers and the people of evil, and the people who are enemies to Allah subhanaw taala and the Prophet follow these methods and tools do not change.
What you are seeing today is just a reproduction of what there was at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is does not change.
And this is why I was telling him, the patients, and this is a command for you and me, be patient, for the decree of your Lord, when you look around you and we see that Islam is far away from the glory that we wish for it. The patience for the decision of your Lord, the patient, the evil is all over the evil. People are the ones who are in control. Islam does not have the upper hand. The Muslims seem to be the weakest amongst nations, be patient and work and wait for the decision of your Lord and for what Allah subhanaw taala was will decree it is only a matter of time the patient's concerning all of this, because Allah subhanaw taala will change us Inshallah, but when we
change our cells, there are certain rules that Allah azza wa jal has placed in this universe
and they don't change they are immutable.
We follow them and we follow Allah.
Then we will become glorious, otherwise,
we will be the lowest of the low.
The patient for the decision of Allah azza wa jal or his decree, well took him an hour
and do not.
So the first part of the statement is a command. The next part a permission, right, the first part who told me, Allah
the next part
How to disobey. Yes, it is an obligation to do what to obey
the atom and the right,
the sinner, or the ungrateful disbeliever. It is an obligation Well,
if this command came to public, it applies so much more to you and me.
It is telling,
beware of those people. We said the methods are the same, the methods as is our problem with him, and his uncle, John and so on refusing,
refusing the religion,
oppressing people, in order not to allow them to practice their religion.
Not only refusing, like, let's not allowing others also to enter. And as they enter, they will stop them and they will oppress them and they will torture them. And they will dissuade people from the religion as they find people are coming to the religion, they started hunting lines about the religion.
Look at these Muslims, right? They start making all of these fabrications about who sins are and how they are.
And it will continue this way. Propaganda.
What more do you have going around calling people to witness calling people to truth and Allah has his own uncle is behind him. Don't follow him. He's crazy. He's a madman.
Can you imagine what worse propaganda?
It's the same methodology. What do you see today? And outright war against Islam?
Right, the killing of Muslims shedding of their blood in so many places, as we all know. But that's not all. What about the propaganda war? Just as vicious war, the propaganda war in the news everywhere. All you hear about Muslims is up which is wrong. That which is not applicable in the first place. Liars subrogation? It's amazing the ignorance of people around the world about the religion of Islam. Where do they get all of these strange ideas about who Muslims are and what they do? From all of this fabricated media?
It's an outright war against Islam. It's a propaganda war against sin. That is my dear brothers and sisters, Allah, Allah told Prophet Muhammad to be patient.
And you are supposed to be patient, he told him not to believe or follow.
Anybody who is a sinner or ungrateful, same for you and me.
The disbelievers are the disbelievers. The hypocrites are the hypocrites. They're everywhere.
And they say they love the religion, and it's a great religion, but least terrorism, stop terrorism, stop anything called jihad, stop fighting against the disbelievers. We believe
that the only way is democracy
against is an extension of what they say. The only way out is democracy. The only way out is for the West or the east to occupy us because as Muslims, we cannot get ourselves out of this. So the solution is for people to occupy us. This is what you hear from people who claim to be Muslim.
And so on and so forth. The Of course, the hypocrites will always hide it and decorate it right, and beautify and embellish what they are saying, it's not that we hate Islam, we love Islam. But
the problem with this slide is this. There are some things that are just not paying for that. This is the way they speak. The war continues do not obey them. Do not obey them, do not follow them. Do not be interested in what they're saying. Do not be aware
of being influenced negatively, by the hypocrites by the enemies of Islam, whether outwardly or inwardly.
It's all the same tools. The Quran, my dear brothers and sisters is what is enough for you
and then as an ally for other than Zillow.
Oka from the Quran is sufficient. The Quran is what has exposed them to the Quran is the one that is telling you about their fluffing and how to deal with it.
The Quran is sufficient follow the Quran.
The Quran and surprisingly has against them with the Quran what a Hindu deity has in
the Quran is what we require
They're in this
vicious war against Islam, whether it is the outward war, the physical war against the South, or the softwar in terms of propaganda, and media,
and other such things
when I told him and I'll go
what's good is small, a big cup of cloth,
clean and mentioned the name of your Lord in prayer morning and evening. This is the way out my dear brothers and sisters mentioned the name of your Lord in prayer morning and evening. In other words, seek refuge in Allah.
Your refuge and my refuge should be Allah Santana, and worship of Allah and prayer to Allah subhanaw taala notice,
mentioned the name of your Lord in prayer in the morning and in the evening, this evening is actually not exactly the evening, but the end of the day. Okay.
Meaning early part of the day, in the later parts of the day, okay.
And that's why
some scholar says this is a reference to the prayers during the day.
Okay, and mentioned the name of your Lord in prayer morning and evening.
And this could also be a reference
to mentioning a lot of times, you're living with Corolla victron. Kathy mentioned, Allah
mentioned Allah much with much remembrance at all times, booklet and
includes everything you do in the first part of the day and in the later part of the day, mentioned Allah azza wa jal at all times, if you're not doing it physically by doing Wikus at least by the numbering him and fearing him, and only acting with that, which pleases Him. When you wake up, when you leave your house, when you enter your house, when you go to your work. And when you are at your work, fear Allah and remember Allah subhanaw taala again, doesn't necessarily mean you're sitting at work and you're making tickets. But you remember Allah when something happens. And it reminds you of Allah azza wa jal or maybe you see something you're not supposed to look at, you remember Allah
subhanaw taala. Or maybe someone comes and wants to bribe you. And you remember a loss. And so many things people face when they leave the house, fear Allah as long as you are outside that house during the day. And when you come back to the house, fear Allah subhanaw taala has all kinds and remembered him what charisma because booklet
in the morning, and in the or the first part of the day, and in the later part of the day. And this is why,
look at the the verse where Allah subhanaw taala canals Prophet Musa alayhis, Salam and home
What is he doing, he's telling them to go and perform
an action, which is largely political.
And at the same time, it is a matter of
go to the tyrant
and call him to Allah, Allah in Tila, who could be as well as any
They're going on a political mission, or on $1 mission.
And Allah subhana, Allah says, Go you and your brother with my signs and do not get tired of remembering me or making victims. So at all times, no matter what you're doing,
if it's a political issue of this issue, political, political or Islamic activism, don't forget the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa taala.
tie between this and this at all times Allah subhanaw. Taala is our source of strength, and the one that we fear and think about.
if you look at this verse, and the one after it,
it may include, indeed all of the five prayers. The next prayer says, the next verse says Wamena Lanie Judah.
We, during the night, prostrate to him, and exalt and praise Him along part of the night during the night process
Hi, this includes Muslim and Aisha
to the morning
so the verse before
the speaking about the first part of the day and the later parts of the day.
And the next verses speaking about the evening or the night, and
later on in the night woman, a lady
was who Leila Polina
and during the night prostrate to him during the night, this is indeed a time Subhanallah where
you may have more time for prayers, more time for worship during the day, we are busy
with all kinds of things, the night is a time where there's supposed to be some quiet right, and
some time for pondering and deliberation and worship of Allah subhanaw, Taala and prostrating much frustrating to him, let me leave you with a myth
and exalt praise in
a long part of the night. This this be, according to many scholars
went the Smith is mentioned in the Quran.
It is usually a reference usually a reference to prayer,
and especially as many scholars said, the recommended prayer so this is a reference to pm.
in the night was Leyland for Willa, for a long part of the night, similar to
the chapter that we just studied.
For me, Leila,
right. Are you covered up, stand up in prayer in the night, much of the night.
In other words, the night except a little part of it
to the end of the verses that we studied, so most of the night, is commandment.
glorify and praise Him and pray to Him along part of the Knights, right.
Always must understand
anyone who wants to battle
all those that are fighting Islam in every way and with every method. This is the way out. don't obey them. Don't compromise in your religion. Remember Allah much and strengthen your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala with much worship, so that he can give us the strength to face
every day, anyone who calls to Islam must have a time alone with Allah subhanho wa Taala this is the way of the Imams it's the way of the colors to Allah. It's the way of the Mujahideen
My dear brothers and sisters, there has to be a special time between you and Allah subhanaw taala
it can't be that all of our time we are just together there must be some time where we are alone with Allah azza wa jal
for that strength to continue.
The great scholars and Imams used to take their strength
from Allah subhanaw taala fungus time alone isn't the time to recharge the battery,
the battery during the day to Allah defenses and then you come back at night and you strengthen and you recharge the battery charges your battery.
So early on Allah subhanaw taala stitchings
priamo ln is one of the most important tools that you must
seek help from in order
to continue with the dollar in order to be patient.
Seeking patients through prayer did not allow
the salary was right in the La La Familia Are you believe, seek assistance through patience.
Pray, pray will make you patient worshiping Allah subhanaw taala will give you that strength and will give you the patients in sha Allah.
Woman The Lady Jude level was a
indeed these disbelievers lovely
immediate and leave behind them a grave day, Allah.
In other words,
these people, all they are looking at is the dunya. And now the verse is specifically talking about this believers mind is mentioning them again, in the
third person. So do you have to understand the kuffar reading this was the talk is specifically to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they are listening to this person, it is very scary.
Okay. You can imagine, I'm telling you,
this person is right next to this person, he will see, his problem is this and this and this and this, and he's going to have this
you can understand the feeling of the person, and especially when they're feeling deep down, that indeed, this is Allah subhanaw taala, who is speaking about them in the third person
speaking correctly, about what is in their heart? And what will be the final conclusion concerning it's very scary in
those people, right in the third person.
They love the immediate, and they're leaving behind them a grave danger. In other words, beware.
Notice, where the
human subpoena leaving behind the yellow piano, they've not left behind the camera still in front of the right. Doesn't come Yes, as part of the future. Why does he use the expression behind them?
In other words, whatever you don't care about, you're putting in behind your back. They left
behind their back. They could care less about the PLR. They're not thinking about the piano, they're doing whatever they please, in their life. They're living maybe their whole life, not thinking
about all of the sins they're committing, or whether there's a law or why he created them. They are just living. Most of them just like animals as Allah subhanaw taala says, and then in the end, they want to come and equate
between themselves and the believers. This is audacity, this is the ultimate honest. Think about that the next time
an unbeliever tells you so you are saying that if he's not a Muslim, he's gonna go to hellfire. Only the Muslims will go to you the one who hasn't even thought about.
You will be acquainted with the Muslim or the with the worshiper. What kind of injustice is this? Even according to human standards, This is injustice, much less the infinite justice of Allah subhanaw taala. You cannot equate between the two. These people. They just love the dunya. They just saw the dunya they just run after this worldly fleeting life, temporary pleasures, living the way they want,
leaving behind them judgment, something they've left behind their backs, something they could care less about, they have neglected and they will continue to neglect.
And my dear brothers and sisters will lie.
It is my humble claim.
That the thing that keeps many, if not most Muslims, away from their Lord, and from the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is this worldly life and explains
even if they're far away from the last one to Allah,
they know that this religion is true.
And they love Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but it is weakness. And it is the dunya occupying them. Look at all the people especially now and Ramadan is only
not so far away. It was just a few weeks ago
where the Muslims what were the numbers that used to fill the masjid during Ramadan? Those people love Allah is Allah lesson
Why isn't the people who are praying in the masjid
become reduced by what I don't know a factor of five. Is that approximately correct? Why? Tell me why isn't because they don't believe the praying in the masjid is legit. Or because they don't want so much in the masjid. They came in.
So why are they attacking
it has preoccupied them. It has busy them. They stayed up to one o'clock. Doing God knows what watching television on the internet playing around. Of course they're not gonna they're gonna miss fajr prayer in the masjid. This is the way it is the thing that is keeping most of us away
and preventing us from rising in levels.
closer to Allah subhanaw taala is the dunya and Allah azza wa jal is telling us beware of this, don't be like the disbelievers who love allowed you, they love the immediate, they're only looking as far as their nose, the dunya they cannot see what's behind this. Don't be like them.
Don't think that eternity exists in this dunya is nothing. This one the life is useless and worthless. Look beyond it to what Allah subhanaw taala has preserved for the pious, on the Day of Judgment, those be like those people, and don't realize those people who forgot the Day of Judgment and are putting it behind their backs. And remember the saying of Your Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu
who said, the dunya, that whoever loves their dunya, their close, immediate worldly life, a loved one,
whoever loves their dunya and notice he only the pronoun dunya who, whoever loved his dunya
he has in some way, harmed himself in Alaska. And whoever loves his
will in some way,
lower the status of his dunya. So therefore choose that which stays over that which will eventually erode choose the Africa over the dunya necessarily a few love your dunya you are in some way, knowing this your status and and if you love your, your in some way, Loring,
at least the love
of the life you're going to live in this dunya.
If you love the ACULA, you're not going to be stuck in this dunya and preoccupy yourself with this dunya you're going to work for your goal is something else, something higher and greater in status.
My dear brothers and sisters
know very well
that the people of evil and falsehood
have reached what they reach by
by doing what is mentioned in this loving the dunya leaving the Day of Judgment behind them. This is how they have become what they become and know very well that the people of will.
And the people that love Allah, and the people whom Allah love and the people of truth, and the people who are spreading goodness
that lofty status by doing the opposite of what is in this is
and living behind their backs.
And interesting that this meaning you will find
in the saying of Allah, Allah when he was describing, many saw in the end of sources,
sources such as excuse me
we're currently in Ukraine
that we have made some
leaders by doing that,
they guide others by his commands
them when they were patient, and they had the opinion, they have certainty in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala What's the relation?
So they became great Imams, and great leaders when they did what when they were patients
when they were patients.
And they left this dunya when they were patients
concerning all of the problems and predicaments of this dunya
when they were patients with all of that, when the
desire and what the dunya is calling them to have temporary pleasures. They were patients concerning that. What can we do? And they are the opinions
Certain things concerning the verses or the signs of Allah subhanaw taala.
and what Allah has promised for the believers, and this is why he's been telling me it says concerning this is
the Southern one your pain, to rely to deal with suffer with patients and your pain, you will achieve we lay
leadership and great status with Allah subhanaw taala. Concerning the religion of Islam, the leaders of Islam
reached their status by doing the opposite of what others have described, the leaders of the dunya
dunya behind your back and put it right in front of you and make it your priority. And it is part
of this. This
to the commands that just preceded it. You go back and you see
that Allah was tied to Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim. So be patient for the decision of your lord. This can be the the iron that we are talking about in the how Allah
this is the reason for which Allah azza wa jal told you be patient, be patient, for the decision of your Lord and do not obey from among them a sinner or ungrateful.
This point, why can you not why should you be patient, because these are people of the fleeting life, the fleeting temporary pleasures, so do not obey them, because they will misguide you. Right?
therefore, turn away turn away,
turn away from the one who turns away from the remembrance of Allah and whose sole goal is this higher than dunya
how important it is to strengthen ourselves, whenever we feel that slowly the river that we are swimming against starts to take us with it. Remember, this is turn away from these people who only want to turn away from
and disobey them. Similarly as this. The reason is, they love the dunya. And they have left an Acura and a great day behind the turn away from them. Also,
the next command point this might have become a thriller, and mentioned the name of your Lord in prayer morning and evening. Why?
Because you should not be like was was forgotten, and only concentrated on the dunya. Again, during the night, prostrate to him and exalt and praise him along. Why?
Because those people
have chosen the immediate and the left behind.
Don't be like them. The one who is going to be able to pray in the middle of the night is not the ones whose heart is connected to the dunya it's very difficult to pray in the middle of the night. All you are after is the dunya you miss the night prayer it's impossible very difficult, unless you make your heart connected to and we put behind you in this way. This verse is almost like a reason for all of the commands that have come before us.
Should I 2014 to 20? Okay.
Yes, of course, whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter, we increase for him in his harvest or the rewards and whoever desires the harvest of this world we give him there off but there is not for him in the Hereafter, and he shall go after
and you will get
go after and you will
believe it or not.
So go off to the era with your brother and my dear sister.
In law, you should moon and hygena and many Muslims nowadays are becoming like the disbelievers who loves the immediate
and they have left behind them Allah had a great day where the
young woman tequila
He says, a grave D, the Arabic word subpoena something heavy, something difficult and serious.
Just versus before Allah azza wa jal was telling us that
the opposite what did they do? They said
Oh Allah, they fear rather a day, who's evil is widespread, right.
They fear they use evil as widespread coverage shovel who was stuffy and they said,
a half year old woman who says
that we fear this right? Which is most austere, and this stressful and was evil widespread.
The opposite they feared the serious. The disbelievers put the grave day behind their backs
we have created them and strengthen their forms. And when we when we can change their likenesses with complete alteration.
This is a reminder to those disbelievers who loved the immediate and hated or forgotten
that which awaits them on the Day of Judgment. It's a reminder, we have created them. Last month Allah created them and strengthen their forms scholars different about
this idea and said that there are two possibilities.
Number one philosopher panel is mentioning
the strength with which he created so Allah azza wa jal is the One who created you and Allah is the One who shaped you and strengthen your creation. In other words, remember this
this is a blessing that Allah has blessed you with when not then worship Him, will you fear him?
And will you love them thank this blessing of Allah subhanaw taala we should
the other possible meanings and this would be this meaning would be similar to
that we created the human being in the best
form or creation here
but then we have to ask what does it mean in Arabic
means to tie to tie together and from that meaning we get the word
Why because a prisoner
let's see if
the ties what ties are we talking about?
Many scholars send
the ties that are tying your joints
and your bones together being the tendons and the muscles and ligaments which is strengthening your creation it is almost as if you are loose bones and the thing which is tying those bones are those ligaments
okay, this is another possible meaning.
The other one is strengthening the creation right.
Giving you the strength
in your creation, to do all of the amazing things that you can do that so many other of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala cannot do
how was this a reminder to the disbelievers because of the second part of the and when we will we can change their likenesses with complete alterations to possibilities again.
And when we will
we can change their likenesses with complete operation. Seven can see it and others color said this is like the idea and solar can work when we will meaning on the Day of Judgment. We will change their color
nation and resurrect them again. In other words, it is another example of Allah subhanaw taala.
Reminding the disbelievers as we created you with this strength that you see now,
we will again resurrect. And as you believe in the first creation, how can you then not believe in the resurrection, which is the second example of creation on the Day of Judgment.
This is the opinion of others.
The other opinion also popular and mentioned by many scholars, and this is the preference of an economic polity.
When we will, we will change their likenesses with complete operations, meaning we will replace them with another people
don't look at the English, you have to look at what the Arabic gives you as a possibility, what is
that we will change their likeness or their likes, right?
With others. So, in other words, we will replace them. And they made this is similar to the other is such as the AI that says
that if you turn away from what Allah is reminding you of, then Allah subhanaw taala will bring another people and they will not be like you. In other words,
it's not as if
you have a guarantee that you will say, if you continue disobeying, what guarantee do you have, that Allah will not remove you with another people who will be better than you and who will obey Allah right.
So, if Allah,
He will remove you, and He will come with another people, right. And similar verses. So this is another possibility, both ways, it's a reminder to the disbelievers, we created them and we have strengthened our form
we will, we can change those ISIS likenesses and we would replace them or we created them and strengthen their forms. When we will on the Day of Judgment, we are going to resurrect them and create them another creation on the Day of Judgment, the resurrection, which is a disbelieve in
V sebelah. Indeed, this is a reminder,
this, this chapter or these verses, this specific verse.
This is a reminder, so we who will make it may take to his Lord away. This is a reminder My dear brother and sister for the disbelievers. And it is also a reminder for the believers, this is a reminder, Therefore whoever will In other words, it's up to you, my dear mother, my dear sister, it's up to you.
It's your own when
nobody's forcing you.
Nobody has placed a gun on your head. You are doing what you please.
You are making your own choices with your own free will.
So who is you wills may take to his Lord away from them sha
Allah will take away to Allah subhanaw taala and there's only one way to Allah
away to his Lord. And we know that there's only one way to Allah subhanaw taala and not many, as many of the disbelievers like to say, so that they can cancel your
and any reason for once they tell you there's many ways, it means is also on a correct way. There's only one way to the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah azza wa jal, my dear brother, my dear sister Phil and
Nina, take the way to Allah, take the waste to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and to the paradise of
the believer knows that when they take this path, and when they are guided to this, it is by the will and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala.
you do not wish, except that Allah willing, and indeed Allah is ever knowing and why.
So it's means
we have a free will.
We're acting upon our will. But whatever we will. And this is one of the clearest
that explained the issue of
issue of destiny, about which there's a lot of confusion.
No, I will, or that Allah will enlighten
me in control, like a pawn on a chessboard by Allah azza wa jal
without any free will. This is one extreme, or the other extreme and like completely acting according to my free will. And there's no such thing as the will of Allah. both extremes are incorrect. And both extremes have a problem.
If we say that you are moving around like a pawn on a chessboard, you don't have any free will. You're not acting according to free will. Just like apologists work, so I might as well sit here.
But Allah is the one who's going to move me. Don't do anything.
Don't study don't eat or drink, don't pray.
Right? Is this the case? My dear brother and sister? If someone says this, they're closer to being ludicrous than intelligent, right? So definitely, I have a free when I'm acting, do you feel
or stopping you know, you are acting according to your own freewill.
In your belief, and the strength of your faith, you know, that whatever you are doing is is only by the will of Allah subhanaw taala. You may say,
I wish I may become a genius, or a great scholar or some famous scientist, or I wish that I can do this and I can do that. But I don't know that Allah subhanaw taala decrees that for me.
Well, how do you know he didn't? Maybe he did?
Well, you gain it by sitting down, work for it. And then after you achieve it, you will know that Allah has decreed it for you. And if you achieve it, you know, Allah is not the creator for you, to create something else for you.
Too often, we busy our feeble minds
with what Allah has decreed. Instead of when we are preoccupying our minds with what Allah wants for a not with what Allah wants, from
busy yourself with what Allah wants from you, and work towards it.
And then you will discover what Allah wants for you and what can decrease for you. Well, Natasha, una, masha Allah. And this is why you'll find in many verses of the Quran as we spoke before, Allah subhanaw taala speaks there are some verses where He only speaks about your will.
In the beginning of time, what did he says?
clear, we have guided him the way
Either he is grateful
So there He only told you about your own way.
Why, again, to
reinforce the fact
that we are acting by our own free will. Very good. But at the end of the day,
he gave you the rest of the equation. Right?
Yes, and again.
Whoever will let them seek to
seek the path to your Lord. It's up to you. The path is clear. This is the way Allah uses the way What more do you want?
This is the way he didn't confuse you and say there are so many ways you said this is the way to lose is to get on the bus and walk it
so if you will go ahead and do it.
But know that when you are willing to do that, it is by the will of Allah subhanaw taala it shows you another beautiful point
and a secret that the only true believers in destiny will understand. And that is when you truly believe
Every time you feel that you have been guided to something good.
You always love to take it back to Allah subhanaw taala is it not whatever
Do you feel that you have achieved something? The Muslim, the true submitter than the one who understands destiny will say, Allah has asked me to this. Allah guided me through this. He knows the Muslim is fully sighted, I only assume
because Allah wills because I was able to do this. But at the same time, they didn't cancel their own effort, meaning I did something to achieve that. And when I achieved this, I knew that it was by the will of Allah subhanaw taala does Allah helped me to this?
A true submitter loves to do that.
They don't like
to attribute things to themselves. They always love to attribute things to Allah, Allah, Allah helps me, Allah is the One who has blessed me with all of these blessings and things of that nature.
But then, those doubts which are floating around in your mind, which Satan will play with,
the devil of humanity also who wants to play with these ideas?
How can it be that Allah version will hold you accountable? If everything's happening by his will?
My own guidance on this guidance is by the will of Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal comes to reinforce and strengthen your faith. He says, Indeed, Allah is ever knowing, in the long can I mean, when he knows what you are going to do, and what you are going to choose, and therefore his, the will of Allah subhanaw taala is connected to that, and he is all wise. So he only wills with wisdom, everything that has happened in this dunya every person is guided, guided with his knowledge, and with his ultimate wisdom, and every person that you see, that is missing guys is in this dunya by the will of Allah subhanaw taala only by his knowledge, and by His wisdom
and know very well, that until the Day of Judgment, whoever Allah will guide it is but his knowledge and wisdom and whoever He will miss guide, it will be by his knowledge and his wisdom and only the people who deserve to be misguided and will not be guided.
That Allah subhanaw taala will. There was guidance in the Lok halimun Hakima you know me.
he'll admit to me wills into his mercy, but the wrongdoers He has prepared for them painful punishment.
Notice my dear brothers and sisters, he admits whomever he wills into his mercy again this is coming back to the will of Allah. By the will of Allah we are guided, then he is the one who will enter into His mercy. What is His mercy? This is a general term it could apply to everything. Some scholars said his mercy, his faith and his mercy can be his paradise and His mercy can be all of that, admitting into the Mercy of Allah, meaning admitting him into everything that will
lead him to the ultimate mercy under the documents when Allah azza wa jal will have mercy upon them
into his paradise, but the wrongdoers He has prepared for them a painful punishment.
We sent in some verses Allah azza wa jal mentioned only your free will.
In other verses, he mentioned only his will,
with Allah guides whomever he wills, and he misguides whomever he wills by his wisdom and in some verses, he combines them
and some verses beautifully show that it is first the free will that play this role?
When Allah says for instance, Allahu Allah,
Allah Allah, Allah does not
the wrong doing people so they did wrong, so they deserve misguide Hola Hola. Hola, como. Right? Well
the transgressing people or the sinful people, right. So in other words, they
they deserve this guidance. Then the other items
you will look at
given when he talks about the likeness of the mosquito, right, and the believers will notice from Allah, but the disbelievers will say, What does Allah tells by this example? Then Allah replace your movie cathedra he misguides with this example many
study guide, many,
that's not all. Well, now you will be in such a pain, he does not. So if you started thinking but he got a mess guys, yes, he only misguides by it, and the ones were transgressed in the first place. So, they deserve this misguided. Similarly, look at this, you
will feel when he spoke about his mercy, this is another example of
attributing to Allah and not attributing that which is equal to Allah.
He admits whom He wills into him.
If you are going to continue on the same way, then you will admit to him punishment, whom you will know the verses but the wrongdoers He has prepared for them a painful punishment, not his painful punishment, a painful punishment, you
when he spoke about mercy, He attributed it to himself. And when he spoke about punishment, he made a general
not only that
definitely weighed two things here. Number one, His mercy He didn't say his punishment, right. And this shows you that ultimately, the ultimate truth of Allah subhanaw taala is mercy.
These two excellent Names of Allah, Allah, Allah.
These are the names. The main means by which Allah doesn't describe himself in the Quran, Allah of course, everywhere, especially chapter
there's no verse that says,
is a very special means Allah and Allah, because the ultimate
description of Allah is mercy. And this is why Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said, that indeed, the Mercy of Allah wins over his anger. So it shows you that the the main traits
the foundation is the Mercy of Allah, His anger and his punishment
are because of the wrongdoing of humanity.
And they will then visit hurts his anger as punishment. This is one point,
Mercy being attributed to him the other points of Halak er, you
will feel he does not link
mercy to your action or my actions. Right.
He admits whom He wills into his mercy. He didn't say he admits the good
into his mercy.
It shows you it's not your these are my these my brothers and by the mercy of Allah, and by His will, that he admits will never he was into his mercy, not by our as Prophet Muhammad. But when he spoke about the punishment, he didn't say, as he admitted into his punishment, whomever he was no, he said the wrongdoers was what he means. So even
going back and he's showing you even though just before he said
within the next week, he again said
that the ones who will be punished
are deserving by their own wrongdoing, what volley mean?
They deserve the punishment of Allah because of their sins, and the deeds that they
by their own hands.
When Allah, Allah says,
that whatever tribulation or predicament, you and I face, it is because of our own sins, and what our own health has lived with us. Forgive us and to have mercy on us and to give us understanding of the Noble Quran and may Allah make us of those who implement the Quran our lives because of those that he lived.
Instead of buying
from your knee, this is the end of Surah ellenson whatever I have said
That is correct it is from Allah and Allah alone and otherwise it is from myself from the
metallics from us on sha Allah
Allah Allah Allah me
brothers and sisters
right in other words, the Allah, Allah gave the example of
call up the mosquito or
not necessarily a mosquito but an insect, okay.
He said that those who believe they know it is the truth from Allah.
But those who disbelieve, then are the ones who will start mocking and asking, What does Allah intends by this example, talking about? Or a mosquito or an insect in the novel? Of course, when you look at this small insects and
there's so much okay and then the other is
for humanity, are you worried?
That Oh humanity, Allah azza wa jal has given you an example. So listen to
those that you are calling on besides Allah subhanaw taala they cannot even bring about or create, what do flies they cannot even create a flight with
the most disgraceful
the creation that you look down upon the cannot even create it anyway. Does there's a scientific miracle concerning this. In the end, the disbelievers will say what does the long term by this example, that Allah says unit human law vehicles here on in this guidance many, and He guides many, but he only misguides those who are transgressors. Meaning,
who are the transgressors? When will they become transgressive? After they become responsible and accountable for their needs, which is after the age of puberty, and they took the conscious decision, to transgress to sin and to turn away from obedience. Then they become consumed.
By this they deserve more misguidance
feelin saying brother, in other words, we are taking conscious and free decisions. This brother Masha Allah took his own conscious free decision to enter the religious, no one forced him, no one compelled him.
many others have taken this conscious and free decision. So Allah subhanaw taala insha, Allah will only increase him in guidance. Similarly with others, they took a conscious decision to turn away from Allah to disobey Allah subhanaw taala no one first of all compels them. And when they disobeyed, they deserve more misguidance.
But maybe in the future. Now, this is the saddest No, I cannot say what will happen later on. Later on. Maybe they will start searching for the truth. Maybe they will start holding themselves accountable.
Muslims who converted or came back to Islam, why don't they do so? Because they started holding themselves accountable. What is this life? What am I doing? Eating, drinking, having sex?
That's all then what? What's the purpose behind all of this? Okay, I've done all of it. And I still feel an emptiness in my heart.
There has to be something and they start searching. And some of them have looked to me religious.
They tried to see them they tried to do this. And they tried my mind you there's no conversion to Judaism, right? You're either a Jew, you're not. They tried it. And Buddhism and
Hinduism, one after another. And by the way, this is excellent. Because they're searching for the truth and they're sincere Allah will guide them
And eventually, and then many of them indeed, found Islam
after having been made before, but now that they've changed their condition, and as part of searching for the truth,
one after another until they finally came to Islam
is the leader.
Those searching for the truth.
He went from religion to another scholar to scholar
more accurately, first he was the recipient of fire worship.
Then he went to Christianity.
Monday, probably the correct question before the Tennessee and before all of the corruption of the religion, he wants to Cassia when he said clearly and plainly his father, their religion is better than ours.
And in Christianity, he again went from scholar to scholar, when he was with one scholar, and this color was about to die, he said guys need to the most knowledgeable on the earth after you, he said so and so he went to Seoul.
And he stayed with him for a while. And again, he said when he was about to guide me to the most knowledgeable about our religion, after you look at the seriousness in applying religion, right?
then he was guided to the next priests, and so on, until the priest told him,
there will not be any knowledgeable priests after me or scholar in Christianity. The next one after me is going to be a prophet, that will be sent in Medina
migrated to Medina and waited for Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ALA, look at the seriousness and searching for the truth.
He wants through the trouble and the difficulty of being a slave. They went from being a free man to a slave in Medina, waiting for the beloved problem to arise. And when he finally arrived
to make sure it is him. And it's a long story. Eventually, he was sure by seeing that lump of meat on his back that he is.
And then he hugged him and kissed him and declared it became wisdom. This is what
people are supposed to do search for the truth. When they know that there's what they have is not the truth.
The alternative is love.
Alternatively, was not to disbelieve in God search for something which is correct.
And then when you have searched everything
you didn't find it
but the truth is there and it is clear for the one who has
eyes and has.
A look very arrogant.
that if you are
why Allah has the right to see
exactly. When you are the enabler. You are the one who
I don't know how to thank you other than that now is that exactly what a complete?
it gets right early, believing in destiny in the correct way helps you to submit and also to understand things in the proper way. Because both extremes committed a major
sin in what they were claiming. When you say there's no such thing as other and I'm doing everything on my own accord.
One may say Okay, fine. The other one is ludicrous. Right? In other words, I'm being moved like a chess board. And I have no free will. That means you're you. First of all you are assaulting Allah and claiming that he will punish people for something that is out of their control. And Allah is more merciful than to punish someone for something out of their control. Right? This is number one, fine. So that's a ludicrous claim. So why don't we say that
And we try to see otherwise concerning the guidance within this guidance. But then you've also insulted Allah, because you are claiming that there are things happening in this world, including our actions
that are outside the realm of his will.
You are claiming, and this is what some people claim, not only Muslims, non Muslims, that basically God created the world. And he's just watching it, play itself out. And he has no willing what's happening? No.
you're saying there are things happening in this world that are outside as well. Of course, everything's happening with these whales,
the will human beings. In other words,
yes, there are things that are completely outside our own will, such as earthquakes, such as tsunamis, such as disasters, do we have anything to do with that? Or is it solely by the will of Allah? Clearly, fully by the will of Allah subhanaw taala and for our wisdom, right? But our actions is the one that is a little bit more difficult to understand. Allah azza wa jal knows it. And Allah subhanaw taala decrees it according
to what you do.
What you know is the foundation and it is what will either make you deserve his mercy
or deserve his punishment.
Only the true submitters, and believers in Destiny can do that. Otherwise, they'll attribute good to themselves, and the disbelievers will always attribute good to themselves. Why? Why should I say that? Allah helped me I did the nice study. Didn't I put all this effort? Because I will, yes, brother, your sister, but you have to understand, if it wasn't for the will of Allah for assisting you not have been able to achieve all of this. No matter how much how many times you every effort to achieve your goal.
But you didn't reach because Allah had willed it.
Just about you and I are just
trying to fulfill the needs. How many times you took the medicine which is supposed to cure your monkey mind.
This time for Allah sake, it just didn't do its job. Because Allah did not will it
this universe is moving, and it is in the charge of Allah subhanaw taala but you ally
Yes or no?
Do you feel someone stopping you? Or do you see feel someone pushing you? Why did you come to this machine?
That someone grabbed you and throw you in the car and drove you? Or did you come by on your own with
courage to write and enforce we encouraged you. And you have the choice
is sometimes it's interesting Subhanallah you know, if you stand here and you think to yourself, where will I be in the next hour?
You have no idea. Allah knows
where you will be.
And it will be based on your actions.
And you will find Subhan Allah,
you know, like this rather than recently accepted this now. You look at the
situation, and everything that happened in his life. It all came together in order for guidance to come to him at his doorstep.
He didn't want to come to Kuwait. But his mother insisted that he come to Kuwait and now she is the one who is
totally against his conversion. She convinced him with her own will to travel to Kuwait he did not want to come. But Allah Subhanallah Allah.
Allah wills, that she convinced him that she encouraged him and that she succeeded in convincing him and Allah will that everything is facilitated for him so that he can come to Kuwait and that he would come and visit during the month of Ramadan and that he will see everything my view. He has no intention to accept Islam, and he has the worst idea about Muslims and he comes to Kuwait and he sees people fasting
After another thing after thing he ceases to Panama, and no one helped him.
It's just the guidance of Allah.
Allah brought him here. But Can someone see for someone forced him No one forced his mother, herself, the Dutch person he was. And he went to the passport office. And he made the visa. And he came on his own. And he came here and he started thinking and he started analyzing, and he asked
to be guided to images.
And he said, Take me to a mosque, and he watched the people.
No one forced him.
When Allah subhanaw taala saw the sincerity in his heart, that he will indeed come and accept this guidance. He gave it to him, and one after another, this world and it's me, came together in order to guide him to Islam. And he accepted Islam and declared his shahada and embraced the religion Subhanak
