00:01:09--> 00:01:16

Well feel welcomed and overcome. Many of the la hora Sula who forgot the person who was in Lima. My dear brothers,

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah the Almighty in the Quran says

00:01:22--> 00:01:22

in a verse

00:01:24--> 00:01:30

that is in a sutra that we recite, I mean many Imams recite on the day of Juma especially

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

during fajr prayer, we recited it this morning.

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

And upon reciting this verse,

00:01:39--> 00:01:47

right, again, there is a prophetic tradition of reciting this surah along with certain incense

00:01:49--> 00:02:05

on the failure of of Jumeirah, right. And those who are regular who come to for your prayer, they know that upon reciting this particular verse, that the Sunnah is to go down in prostration.

00:02:06--> 00:02:55

Right, just like it is the Sunnah also to do that, in some other parts of the Quran, according to some Allah, it's 14 places in the Quran where you're supposed to do what is known as Sita to tilava. So when you come upon these verses, right, you pause and you actually going prostration in response to what the verse is calling us to or what the verse is reminding us of. But there is something very interesting about this particular verse. Allah subhana wa Tada says it is a I mean as it is the case with the entire Quran very relevant. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that I want you to pay attention in me and will be Tina Lavina either the key rule we have for wall Sujatha

00:02:57--> 00:03:02

was a better movie Hamdi or a be more homeless stuck being thrown

00:03:04--> 00:03:14

in you know we Tina Latina Ido Kiera we have her Rosa Jada. It is only those It is only those who truly believe.

00:03:18--> 00:03:19


00:03:21--> 00:03:23

those who truly believe

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

in Our Ayat in our signs in our revelation I asked means what? Not only the verses of the Quran but the reason the verses of the Quran were called as is because

00:03:35--> 00:03:44

they are actually they have more miraculous nature but there are signs there clear signs of the existence of Allah and that this book is from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:03:45--> 00:04:11

They testify to the truthfulness of this message of Islam and the message of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's why the verses of the Quran are known as if, but Allah subhanaw taala says, Who are those people who truly believe in our ayat, Allah subhana, Allah tells us that of their qualities is Alladhina Ido QB when they are reminded when it's recited to them, when they come upon it.

00:04:13--> 00:04:23

When they pay attention to it, when they're reminded of it, how will Sujatha they response or they react to it by falling down in profit into prostration?

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

Are you with me?

00:04:30--> 00:04:48

I know there's little distraction here happening. But I want you to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in the manual attina on the ones who truly believe in our eyes are only those who when they are when it's recited to them or when they recited themselves, when they are reminded of it.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

They're react reaction, their response to the verses and the signs of Allah is that it compels them and it caused them to fall down and prostration

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

and make sujood to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:03--> 00:05:12

Well said before behind the rugby him and the second reaction of theirs is the fact that they actually glorify the praises of their Lord.

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

They Say Subhan Allah, or they say, Subhana Allah, he'll be handy.

00:05:19--> 00:05:42

And they say it. And they mean it, and they understand what it means. Or they say, Subhana Allah. That's what the true believers say. They actually say it and they believe in it, right? That's the second reaction of theirs. And then Allah subhanaw taala reveals something that goes along with these two, it's actually a condition. Allah says we're homeless tech bureau. And they are not too proud.

00:05:43--> 00:05:51

They are not full of arrogance and pride. They actually do it. They do it humbly. They do it with humility.

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

They feel

00:05:56--> 00:05:57


00:05:59--> 00:06:00

They're actually

00:06:01--> 00:06:40

their their Eman gets a boost out of it. They actually enjoy their sujood they are touched by their sujood. Their sujood actually increases them in their faith. So Allah Subhana Allah tells us that the true believers are those who actually when they listen and hear and pay attention to the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala, whether it's things that they can see in the universe, that Allah subhanaw taala has placed there, to let us know that he exists and to let us know that he cares about us and to let us know that he loves us, and to let us know that he's willing to guide us and he's providing for us, these signs are all over the place.

00:06:41--> 00:06:57

We drive by it, we walked by it, we see it all over the place. Likewise, also Allah subhana data centers, signs that we can actually read and engage and recite and reflect upon. These are. This is the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala the Quran.

00:06:58--> 00:07:12

So how do we bring ourselves to believe in that when many people are invited left and right there, they're tempted to give up on their faith and to deny the existence of their Lord and to turn away from the faith.

00:07:13--> 00:07:56

Allah subhanaw taala reveals to us in this verse, an element that is so destructive, that in my opinion, it is the reason why most people either lose their faith or turn away or walk away from Allah subhanaw taala walk away from Islam. And that is the disease and the element of pride and arrogance. Promises Salam came to warn us in this ayah Allah Subhana Allah says those who make sujood you know, someone might say actually, some of the scholars said this, the ayah says, Those who prostrate they fall into prostration and they do not have any pride. You see, normally you wouldn't fall into prostration unless what

00:07:57--> 00:08:01

you have gotten over your pride and your ego, right? Like who right?

00:08:04--> 00:08:18

But we are told that Fatima oh the Allah Allah used to say, Oh Allah I seek refuge in You from right, from prostrating from being from being physically humbled yet,

00:08:19--> 00:08:36

not being spiritually humbled from my heart, not prostrating, because some people go into sujood. And even during the time of the prophesy send them we know that there was a segment of the community of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam known as I'm gonna have to code, they will pretend like they were believers, they would make God with everyone, but their hearts were not into it.

00:08:38--> 00:08:50

And that's why Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran over and over again tells us how our hearts are supposed to respond to the book of Allah, how our hearts are supposed to be humbled. Right? That's, that's the concept of

00:08:52--> 00:08:52


00:08:53--> 00:08:55

our hearts have to have to respond.

00:08:56--> 00:09:05

And that is why my dear brothers and sisters, if we do not engage this book, in the signs of Allah subhanaw taala, this spiritual level and humble ourselves, and try to

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

detect any trace

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

of arrogance in our hearts and get rid of it, we're not off the hook, we're in trouble.

00:09:16--> 00:09:25

So the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam identified this disease, this most destructive disease to the Sahaba and he warned them of it.

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

And it should be something that we do on a daily basis, we make sure that we don't have any manifestation or any signs

00:09:36--> 00:09:36


00:09:38--> 00:09:39

pride or arrogance.

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

Remember that the reason it believes

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

was cursed.

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

The reason this, this war between us and Satan began is because of this.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

It is not that he believes did not have enough evidence to prove to him that God exists. He's

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

Bogota, Allah subhanaw taala he actually referred to Allah as Robbie, my Lord, He knows who his lord is.

00:10:06--> 00:10:06

He knows.

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

But it was his pride.

00:10:11--> 00:10:21

He could not bring himself to do something so good. That's why, by the way, sujood is the greatest manifestation of humility, right? And it's one of the greatest ways to get rid of your pride.

00:10:24--> 00:10:36

And that's why every now and then we suffer something, we suffer a calamity, or an affliction that causes us to collapse and go down. And it's Allah subhanaw taala is ways to say that I'm humbling you, you need this, you need to come back to me.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

Don't think that you are too strong or invincible or that you are you can do it on your own. You need me you're much more

00:10:45--> 00:10:52

weaker than you think you are. And it's okay to be weak. It's okay to be vulnerable. And that's why you mix it up.

00:10:53--> 00:11:01

It's a daily reminder. So it believes refuse to make sujood to Adam. He said no, I'm better than him.

00:11:02--> 00:11:12

Color can even narrow Hello Octoman team and have a better quality. By the way, if you really reflect on this, you will find that is responsible for most of the atrocities that are committed in the world.

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

People go around and you know, mass kill other people because they're different because they're of a different ethnicity or race.

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

gunned down innocent people in broad daylight. For what?

00:11:29--> 00:11:35

For what, these are sick hearts, that are full of pride and arrogance.

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

I think that this person is responsible for my misery.

00:11:40--> 00:11:52

And by the way, arrogant people, they never take responsibility for their own actions or for their own mistakes or for their own miserable state and polite. They rather blame it on everyone else. Just like at least it.

00:11:56--> 00:12:00

So this is why it's important to make sure that we get rid of we get rid of it.

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

That's why the province of Salem identified it. He said Be beware of kibble.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

Beware of kibble. In another Hadith, he said

00:12:13--> 00:12:20

the smallest, the smallest amount of kibble is enough to disqualify a person from entering Jannah.

00:12:21--> 00:13:07

So we need to know what is at stake here. Anytime you see any manifestation of it. One of the ways to redeem ourselves is humble yourself. Apologize. So one of the Sahaba said to the prophesy seller because we have this mis understanding of Cuba, he said, but what if one? What if I or one a man a person basically likes to dress up nicely? I like to dress up I like to have nice shoes. Is that Kip? If I like to look good? The promise I sent him said no. Not necessarily in Allah. Hi, Jimmy. No, you heard Bucha van. Allah is beautiful. And Allah Subhana. Allah appreciates beauty. That's not it. Arrogance is here, the Presidents have said I'll keep room and he gave two characteristics or

00:13:07--> 00:13:08


00:13:10--> 00:13:47

descriptions, the promises that have said, I'll keep it oh, it has two ingredients in it. I'll keep rubato would have jumped on us. And I want you to really ask yourself, Do I have any of these? And if I have both of them, then I need to do something about it. The province has a key blue button will help is the rejection of the truth. Like even when you see the truth, right? You see something that is self evident or manifesting itself someone comes in proves their point to you. Or you see you see what is right yet you rejected? You're like Nope, I don't care. I don't know, you know, you know you were wrong. But you don't want to admit it.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

You know, the other person was right, but you'd like

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

they're not going to win this one.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

But I would help Well, humbleness and the second

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

ingredient or component of it is to look down upon other people

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

to look down upon it to think that you're better than anyone. By the way. It doesn't have to be like Well, some people say I'm better than some people, not all people

00:14:13--> 00:14:32

do to look down upon other people. Because only Allah Subhana Allah knows who's better. See, this was the disease that the police had at least thought to himself that and he rationalized it to himself. I am better than Adam. I mean look at what I was created for him. It is superior to clay

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

or to to mud.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

How could you? That's what he thought.

00:14:40--> 00:14:49

How many of us think that just because we belong to or we were born to a particular geographical location that we're better than any other people.

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


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

How does you know being you know from a particular country or town or village, or sometimes even neighborhood

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

Some people think that somehow the people of that neighborhood are superior to anyone else.

00:15:06--> 00:15:10

This is the worst form of arrogance and the worst form of ignorance.

00:15:12--> 00:15:24

So, man, Ravi Allahu anhu, received a letter from Abu Dhabi from Jerusalem. Allahu Moca Jessa if there is any, you know, Maccha Medina, these are great places, but guess who was from Makkah?

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

And it didn't help him I want to have in Abuja hell.

00:15:30--> 00:15:38

And it didn't do much for them. Guess who was from Medina, obey even a saloon, Abdullah innovativeness and all. The hypocrite

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

didn't do anything for him.

00:15:41--> 00:16:15

So I'll put them there. I wrote a letter to Selma, the Pharisee. And he said, Why don't you come retire? I don't mean a lot of them have heard this. He said, Come over to the sacred land, come over to the Holy Land and reside here. So now I wrote back to him and he said, in the mirror that additional ability or issue or they have an inner myopathy, so who am I know, he said, What makes a man holy is not the land on which he resides, but rather his deeds and actions? I say this and I asked him to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to, according to the poll was Sophia Rolla, Holly welcome for those of you who have Phillip Camino, who

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

will go for Rahim.

00:16:28--> 00:16:40

Al hamdu Lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala Saha that, my dear brothers and sisters that are many blessings that Allah Subhana Allah blesses us with, that we somehow find I

00:16:42--> 00:16:55

find them to be, you know, reasonable justification to think that we are better than other people. And we should also be careful of that there are all kinds, I mean, it's a very complex subject, we'll ensure we'll continue to discuss it tonight. What makes some people

00:16:57--> 00:17:03

feel proud and think that they're better than other people. We need to tackle this issue, we need to talk about it.

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

Right? What makes a man thinks that he's better than everyone in his household

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

because this This disease causes people to commit all kinds of, as I said, atrocities

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

and it causes them to wrong people.

00:17:20--> 00:17:26

But the believer of the promise of the believer and this is another reason why some people

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

you know, think of themselves to be better than other people.

00:17:31--> 00:17:47

Competition over duniya another you know, resources and all of that, I have to put everyone down in order for me to climb up and the profit and send them gave a beautiful example that will reflect upon a charlatan in the future more that the believer is like, the palm tree

00:17:48--> 00:17:58

out of all the trees, pomegranate and Pomegranate. Pomegranate is a very nice as a tree, exotic tree, you know, who doesn't like farming Naira, you know,

00:18:00--> 00:18:06

Apple is nice, but the Rossum gave an example of the palm tree that the believer is like Nephilim

00:18:07--> 00:18:13

and some people analyze this metaphor and they said why was so so nice about it

00:18:14--> 00:18:26

said the palm tree continues to give non stop everything about the palm tree is actually beneficial. Everything you can benefit from everything, not only from the fruits but from everything from the trunk from the leaf everything.

00:18:28--> 00:18:37

Palm Tree, by the way, can actually produce smaller branches and other trees beneath it. It allows other palm trees to grow.

00:18:39--> 00:18:59

Right? It does not destroy, you know, usually some trees actually they they grow in a fashion where they feel like they're, you know, they feel like they need to compete for sunlight and for space. So they spread the roots spread sideways, right? The branches spread all over the place. Palm tree doesn't do that.

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

Right goes deeper and it goes higher. That's it.

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

I need more sun go higher.

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

It's not at the expense of other trees.

00:19:11--> 00:19:49

That's what the believer is supposed to be like. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us humble pure hearts. May Allah Subhana Allah keep you and your loved ones safe. May Allah subhanaw taala protect and preserve this community My dear brothers and sisters we're only about three weeks away from the our beloved holy month of Ramadan, prepare yourselves for that in sha Allah, Allah will see you all in the month of Ramadan, as we hope inshallah to Allah that we will be able to resume some of these activities and programs that you're used to, may not be back to full, you know, normalcy,

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

but nonetheless insha Allah Allah Allah, we hope that this this time and this year inshallah things are going to be different with Allah Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our sins

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

May Allah subhanaw taala accept our deeds may Allah subhanaw taala allow you and I to reach the month of Ramadan in the best of health

00:20:07--> 00:20:31
