wa Salatu was Salam o Allah rasool Allah Karim.

00:00:11 --> 00:00:17

Why Allah MBA he was really he was cambia Illa. He also the here as you may well God

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

the Quran tells us about the story of Adam Alayhis Salam.

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

And the intent of this

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


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

series of

00:00:36 --> 00:00:46

reminders in short talks is not to talk about the details again, of the story of Adam we can explore that at a later time but rather to take one or two or three lessons.

00:00:48 --> 00:00:53

moral lessons that is from the extraordinary lives of these great

00:00:55 --> 00:00:58

individual individuals that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran.

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

And there are many lessons that we can learn from the story of Adam.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:09

As mentioned in the Quran, however, tonight, I would like to highlight two

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

Lesson number one

00:01:17 --> 00:01:21

is to see the balance between humility

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

and dignity living a dignified life.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

Adam comes from very humble origin.

00:01:33 --> 00:01:43

The very name itself according to many scholars reminds us that he was made of the substance that covers the surface of this planet.

00:01:45 --> 00:01:50

And Allah Subhana Allah took from different parts according to many narrations.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

So Adam,

00:01:54 --> 00:02:05

did not necessarily come from one particular geographical location, but rather from all over this earth, Allah subhanho wa Taala took dirt from this planet

00:02:07 --> 00:02:08

and formed Adam adding Sana

00:02:10 --> 00:02:15

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes that point very clear to everyone of us.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:34

Colloquially, Adam, you all belong to Adam, you have this one common ancestor, you did not evolve from anything. You are actually direct descendants of this great human being at a Salam.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

Colloquially, Adam, you all belong to Adam,

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

no matter what race,

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

what nationality,

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

what country,

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

or tribe you come from.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

These are all variations.

00:02:56 --> 00:03:02

We all have that one Adamic nature and that is why we refer to as Benny Adam,

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

children of Adam.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

And that origin

00:03:09 --> 00:03:13

is nothing to be proud of. Something to appreciate.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:23

It's very humble origin colloquially, Adam will Adam mentor up and Adam was created from drop from dirt from dirt from the soil of this planet.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:29

However, this particular creation was dignified.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:35

Because Allah subhana wa Taala created Adam Alayhis Salam with his own hands.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:49

And Allah subhanho wa Taala honored Adam and his descendants, as Allah azza wa jal mentions in the Quran, Allah Quran never any Adam, we have indeed honored the Children of Adam.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:56

So what gives you an eye dignity? What gives us a special status

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

is not necessarily where we come from.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

But how we came to this world

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

and why we're in this world.

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

Allah Subhana Allah chose to create us for a reason.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:22

Allah subhanho wa Taala made that purpose, very clear, he actually made a declaration to the angels.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:32

If you remember the verses that were recited yesterday, Allah Subhana Allah made an announcement to the angels in Niger alone fill out of the Khalifa.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:42

There will be a custodian that will be someone that will be in charge of this earth, I will put someone in charge of this earth and it will be Adam and his descendants.

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

That was the

00:04:45 --> 00:04:48

intent of Allah Subhana Allah from the beginning.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:59

So that's what gives you an i value. The fact that we're not just an accident, we're not an accident. We didn't just have

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

happen to happen. We didn't just occur out of nothing. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will does Allah Subhana Allah wanted us each and every single one of us. There are so many odds that we have to defy

00:05:13 --> 00:05:18

and beat by the grace and the power of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to come into existence.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:43

There is a purpose for us. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah made that purpose very clear to Adam Alayhis Salam, that's what dignifies us Allah as we have created Adam, our father, Allah, He sent him with his own hands. And then Allah subhana wa Tayana admitted him to Janna. No one before Adam had that kind of access without doing anything Allah Subhana Allah says, What

00:05:45 --> 00:05:46

was your call Jana?

00:05:49 --> 00:05:57

So remember that, remember that you come from a humble origin. Remember, humility, humility is a beautiful quality,

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

to possess and to maintain.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:07

And it will come in handy later, even in the story of Adam, and the second lesson,

00:06:08 --> 00:06:26

but remember also that you are a dignified being and take pride in being the servant of Allah Subhana Allah, the creation of Allah azza wa jal nothing else if you take pride in anything other than the fact that you're a servant of Allah subhanho wa taala. Then you have indeed

00:06:28 --> 00:06:45

lowered yourself to the lowest of low. Allah subhanaw taala says, we have created Adam or human beings in the best of forms. So maraga Who has shoulder surfing but when people basically lose focus, and they take pride in anything

00:06:47 --> 00:06:53

else other than being servants of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah azza wa jal will lower them and humiliate them.

00:06:54 --> 00:06:59

The second lesson that we learned from Adam alayhis salam from the story of Adam

00:07:01 --> 00:07:02

is to balance

00:07:06 --> 00:07:09

hope with the fear of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:24

To be hopeful in Allah Subhana Allah is mercy and to be fearful of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah wrath. And the product of that is this beautiful concept that we are taught in the story of Adam Alayhis Salam known as repentance.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:33

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, We human beings, by nature were susceptible to sins.

00:07:35 --> 00:07:39

We do not inherit the original sin of Adam Addison, and we don't.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:49

That's not our sin, that wasn't our choice. That is his ad a sinner, and he repented from it. And Allah Subhana Allah forgave him for it.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:58

However, we do have the capacity to sin. And we have to acknowledge that and we're susceptible to sins.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:09

We're not as virtuous as we think we are. Some of us, some people, when they are reminded to ask Allah for forgiveness, or say, suffer Allah or make Toba. They're like, what did I do?

00:08:11 --> 00:08:14

That's what it believes, our sworn enemy

00:08:16 --> 00:08:28

whom we learned learn about in the story of Adam as well. That was his attitude. As a matter of fact, it believes does not take any responsibility for his actions.

00:08:29 --> 00:08:34

He actually blames ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So he says, Be mad white Tenny

00:08:35 --> 00:08:37

you have caused me to deviate.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:52

My deviation is not my choice. You cause it? You impose it on me, oh, Allah. He doesn't take any responsibility. On the other hand, Adam Alayhis Salam, and this is where humility comes in handy. He acknowledges his mistake.

00:08:54 --> 00:09:00

And he realizes that it was him that made that mistake. It was his choice. It was his sin.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:14

Yet his fear caused him to run away when he lost one of his privilege some of his privileges in Jannah. Upon committing the sin, Adam realized the gravity of the sin that he committed, so he runs away.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:23

He's exposed and then he runs away. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Adam, are you running away from me?

00:09:24 --> 00:09:30

And then I had them at a salaam were told says to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, I'm ashamed of myself. I'm ashamed of what I have done.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:46

So Allah Subhana Allah tells him to come back and add them and he said, I'm comes back in a state of humility to Allah subhanaw taala this time with a heart full of what? Full of Hope in the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

So knowing that we are the children of Adam are susceptible to sins and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and says, could look no Adam Hapa every time

00:10:00 --> 00:10:34

Out of Adam is a sinner, or a sinful or hat are capable of committing sin. Yet the best of them are those who repent to Allah Subhana Allah Adam, the concept of Toba, or repentance was introduced to him and Allah Subhana Allah inspired him and Hawa his wife with the words with which they ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness, Allah bene in an alumna and for Santa, oh Allah Our Lord, we have indeed wronged ourselves they took full responsibility for their actions.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

We have wronged ourselves.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:52

And if you do not forgive us our sins, and if you don't extend your mercy to us, oh Allah azza wa jal then Hakuna Nominum Kasserine we will be amongst the losers.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

And upon saying that,

00:10:56 --> 00:11:06

and being truthful, and what they express Allah Subhana Allah forgive their sins. And they were promised Jana again. But this time after they pass the test of dunya.

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

Great lessons

00:11:13 --> 00:11:25

that are worthy for us to really reflect upon and take into consideration. Remember, do not belittle any sin. Someone might say what was the big deal, he just took a bite from a tree.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:39

The gravity of the sin has to do with where it was created and whose presence it was created, created, committed, where it was committed and whose presence it was committed.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:58

Do not belittle any sin but at the same time, do not think of any sin to be greater than the Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and come back to Allah azza wa jal, I asked Allah to forgive us our sins. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to help to help us overcome our short

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

comings and our weaknesses. A poodle had a pool of stuff hula hula compressive through here Philomena hula hula hula Rahim.
