Sheikh Mohammed, how have your Ramadan been going so far and your community and how you this so beautiful all along my Shalom and lost to Allah. But the countdown started some? Yeah, there's that feeling that maybe I could have done much better, but
will ask you for some advice or some tips as well in Charlotte to help to overcome that as we're entering into the last 10 Nights at the end. But right now, I don't want to take any time from your talk in shot level. We'll jump into today's topic and then listen and I'll catch you at the very end. Let's get started.
salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Allahu alayhi salam
alaikum I live in LFR en el tannery my husband and I was in a marriage and I'm gonna do this to me I want to call it to be honest. So
may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to. I don't know whether it's just the quality of my camera or I think I need to dress it to
something a little high definition but
today we're going to be talking about that
Very interesting story. This story is very interesting, in many ways, because when it comes to this particular revelation
there, there seems to be more than one version of what led to the revelation of this of this, these particular verses in this particular surah.
So, for instance, we have the hadith of Jeb now, the letter of the law and blah, blah, where he talks about the prophets of Allah I think it was telling them
coming out of the cave of Hara, and sitting on you know, the prompts and send them he said that the processor level was worshiping in Hara.
At that particular time, it had been a month that the processor was worshipping in Hara, and that as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out of Iraq.
He saw the the angel and jabber says that he saw to breathe
in His original form, sitting on
what appeared to be
a throne or some sort of platform.
So inside Muslim, we have this narration where he says that you that while in Hawaii and you breed, sitting just floating in the horizon, he said that that's the origin of admission either. Instead, I started shivering and
feeling cold. So now he seemed to breathe in His original form for the first time according to the habit of not the law. So he goes home, he said it to hydrogen. So I went home to Khadija coupled to the theory, the throny. And I said, cover me up, cover me up. So the prompts, the last sentence is already wearing something. But now he feels very cold, He's shivering. And
he he asks for something to be covered with throw, they gave him the human guard, a loose garment, and the prophesy said and puts that on, and he wraps himself. In another narration, it says that he actually passed out so Allah Allah, he was so good.
And then when he
and then when he came back to regain his conscious process, went home to Khadija
in one ERATION in the hadith of Muslim that said that the Passover so they actually poured water on him. So a lot is whether it's to cool him down or to calm him down. So I said well, because he was sweating. And then the Prophet SAW Allah or they were sent them covered himself
and and just sat down or laid down. So a lot, I think it was certainly
and obviously, when you look at this particular narration, there is that that portion where that that is in conflict with what I show the law and reported as to what was the first revelation and that is the longer version and to reconcile the two narrations, the narration of Aisha in which she talks about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a while for some years I
started to meditate in the in the cave of Hara,
which you will also know as some people will refer to as Jibon unknown because that's, that's where the problem is, I'm alive. He said that he received his first revelation. So the amount of Hara when you go to Mecca is part of the standard tour that people do have McKenna they go stop by Hera. Some people even go as far as climbing the mountain. So I show their love and have said that that was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his favorite spot to go is said and reflect and ponder.
And for four years, he would he would go home to Khadija Khadija would
prepare something for him to take and then he would go for days and sometimes nights. He would go for for multiple days, until he runs out of food. And then he goes home again. And then he goes back. So that became his favorite spot to meditate, to worship to make to her to contemplate, to reflect. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam had died yet would help until the truth appeared to him. And in that story, we're told that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, basically the angel hugged him and you know, and then the revelation of the five first verses of Surah Aircar epilogues Arabic Allah develop also to Allah was revealed. And then I should say that the Prophet SAW Selim went home
to her Deja and he said the middle ism and only cover me up cover me up. And you know, and then she eventually he told her what happened and then she took him to Ottawa and then went up
I've made some sense out of what he experienced. And then he went home. So a lot of money he was selling.
And that's the basically storyline of, of the narration of Hadiya. And the scars coming. They say, well, to reconcile these two narrations, it appears that Jabra Abdullah may have caught. You know, this is for instance, the explanation shift where a female Rahim Allah is that jasminum Abdullah may have caught the story from the middle so, so he he doesn't say anything about sort of Allah or Arabs or because Allah. So when you put the two stories together, it appears that one was the commencement of the Ebola, right prophethood the Prophet saw a lot of this and then was spoken to, and a revelation came to him in the cave of Hara, and Allah subhanaw taala ordered him to recite or read
and then a Travis became the Holla Holla called Inside I mean, Allah was revealed all the way until
unlimited instead of Miami out of the first five verses, and then the promises haven't went home. And you know how to deal with the whole situation and understand what is happening with him and had that conversation with idea of the Allahu Allah Allah.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam appears to have gone back to Hera, to look for, you know, maybe more guidance and you know, understand what is happening. And the second time is when now he sees Djibouti in His original form or in his actual form, right? The first time there is no indication that you please actually appeared to him, right? He felt his presence he spoke to him, there is no clear indication that he the process of actually saw him the second time when he saw this massive
massive Angel, this creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets of Allah Allah He was syllables shocked by what he saw some a lot of it was said that so he comes home. Again, it's all new to him. So Allah Who are they even send them? He comes home and he says, definitely Ronnie dethroning covered me up, cover me up.
So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you know, sensitivity to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was in that state of him being covered or enveloped in a cloak, right?
Wrapped up. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam,
verses from certain death are revealed. And this time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is called to action.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told to get up and start his mission. So a lot it was said, and this is where the scholars believe is the commencement or the beginning of the revelation that came to the prophesy, and then that would make him a messenger. So they say, the first revelation that came to him Eckhart was,
you know, that of the new Goolwa that that basically started prophethood. And then this particular revelation was the beginning of rissalah. Right? So the prophets of Allah, they send a message begins and his mission begins and Allah subhanaw taala calls him to get up and warning as soon as responsibility is called to, to act solid la vida, he was setting up and he's told what to do in preparation for that, what are the things that he needs to do? So let's look at these verses that are loss of habitat, Allah revealed to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So Allah subhanaw taala says about our relationship on a regime. This we learn here more manual, one theme.
You have the theory?
Yeah. Oh, you who is
the one who is covered up in, in in a cloak or a loose garment,
that there is someone who is, you know, wrapped up with a default. The FAO
is something scholars say, as the scholars, linguists say that it's, it's that garment that goes up above what they call shadow shadow is, is the, the garment that goes directly on your body, right? Whether it's under a shirt or you know, a fellow
dress of some kind somebody like usually people wear on their body directly. The thought, on the other hand, is something that goes on top of that, right, like a cloak, whether you know or like, shower, for instance, whatever people
wrap themselves with or add on top of what they're wearing the basic clothing that they're wearing, whether for beautification purposes because people you know, like to have extra or
For because they weren't worth you know they need more. And in this particular case of Prophet sallallahu, or they would send them was wrapped up because he needed some more some of why they would send it. So Allah subhanaw taala addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that state. And there's almost consensus amongst the scholars, that the person being addressed here, and we'll death is the prophet of Allah.
And Allah so Allah Subhana Allah says to the prophets of Allah, they send them yeah, you have a death, Owen who is covered up or wrapped up or you know, with, you know, in a mantel or whether or not in a loose garment, right? So Allah Allah,
Allah subhana, Allah says on the Get out, come, rice, right? Stand up, arise, the MDM. And immediately, right, the
conjunction here that the the letter that is used as fat and it implies that this sense of urgency or that this needs to be assumed and taking care of immediately start your mission, Warren, and there, start wanting, and it doesn't say, who doesn't say, you know, Warren who for me, there is a process of a lot of self came to warn everyone, but the obvious target of this warning that the prophets otherwise it would be his own people comfort and
then Allah Subhana Allah says to the Prophet, salallahu Alaihe Salam, well, Rebecca Campbell, right, glorify,
pronounced and proclaim
the greatness of your Lord. One of that and it begins with word Baca. khabar, which is a very interesting Subhanallah construction. When you look at the the phrase itself itself, it doesn't say what Kabir Rebecca says, well, back Africa. Right. And,
you know, there's, there's a great dimension of Malala into into that. So lots of habitats as well back Africa better and your Lord, glorify, no one else deserves to be glory, glorified, no one else deserves to be magnified. You know, focus on on glorifying your Lord and introducing your Lord, you know, to yourself and to your constituents or to your audience, or whatever campaign
whatever Yeah, Becca forgot here, Allah subhanaw taala says to the proximal a lot. So look what we have here, right? And purify your garments, or, actually the construction of it is with yarmulke, and your garments, right? Remember, our loss of health data says, Yeah, even with death, right? addresses him in the state that he was, you know, cover it up in and then Allah subhana, Allah tells him now you need to take care of purifying your clothing, right? When you have a cup of love and your garments or your clothing, purify it, make sure that it's it's it's pure
water, which is FF Jordan,
Idolatry, and the practices of the pagans of Mecca, continue to
shun and stay away from right.
This is, you know, someone might read it and say, well, it says what, who is the fact you're, you know, Shun or avoid the idols? Does this imply that the promise I send them was ever involved in any of that? No, it does not actually, the Prophet saw a lot of seven was not involved in any of it. Eliza is telling the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam continue, right, this state of rejecting.
And this conviction that you have that the subtitles should be worshipped or attended to. So what was that the hedger and the expression that is used to refer to the idols, the idol? idolatry and
culture of paganism is really just Allah subhanaw taala doesn't necessarily say
use the word that means idols like that. It's not that religious and it's understood that it refers to it because it is it is filthy, right? It may not be physically like, unclean or filthy, but this is spiritually unclean. This is spiritually filthy. So Allah subhanaw taala
that's why I was so jealous, and sort of Matt EDA says, Yeah, you enter the you know, Amande or you believe in them will humble
wine or intoxicants will make zero. Dan Dan
Buildings, while unsolved, what Islam and all these practices of paganism include including
idols, or using
idols or attending to that to the idols to and try to come up with with decisions or different practices that they have. Allah subhanaw taala says at each segment I'm going to shade on there all unclean filth from the work of Satan. Right? So Allah Subhana Allah refers to them as rates or rates, right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the peroxisome instructs him to get worn, purify, glorify loss of how to Allah, purify his, his clothes, and go and engage people. And the first step of engaging the people is to shun them and to stay away from from whatever they're doing, right.
So these are the five verses believed to have been revealed, according to the narration of
Jagow, the Allahu, Allahu Allah. And this is the story behind them. Now, there are obviously other narration that suggests actually, more than these verses were revealed, that actually continues. And if you look at the context of the Revelation, it appears that no, you know, it was it was probably more than that, probably the first, not the first. But the first seven verses of this surah were revealed together, because there is continuity. So if we want to look at verse six and verse seven, we will see that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says to the Prophet SAW Allah, Allah has said them while at Amnon distracted, right, and do not look at
any favor, that you offer, right? as something to be too big, right?
When that time no and to stick to or do not do anything, do not engage in this work of yours, deliver delivering this message, warning the people hoping that you're going to get something in return. That shouldn't be your intention, your intention should be purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And this goes very well with the fact that Allah is just as well Becca kept there was You see Allah as well as the greatest.
And the one that is that that deserves our utmost respect and reverence, subhanho wa taala, then anything else, other than his pleasure, that you would get for anything that you do for his sake, would be worthless, it would be trivial, right? So do not do any of these things. Don't, don't do a favor to anyone. Don't engage in any action to help others, whether it's in a spiritual manner or in relief work, hoping for something in return for some worldly gain. Right? Obviously, if you if your intention is to get more pleasure and more so from a loss power to Allah, then that's legitimate, but to gain fame, or to get a following or popularity or
to increase your financial gains, in a fashion that is justifiable, you know, that that shouldn't be the you know, your intent. And this is a lesson we learned from the work of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, and from the work of the prophets before him, like every single one of them would come to his people. And he would say, well put me that I look really agile, I am not here I asked him for a reward for a worldly gain. I'm bringing this to you for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.
Then Allah subhana, Allah says that all of this, right, Eliza is prepared. Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So verse seven comes and remind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this was perhaps the first lesson
offered to the Prophet sallallahu. It was said that Allah azza wa jal says to the Prophet, while the Arab DECA persevere
and for the sake of your Lord, while the Arab decat for the sake of your Lord prosper, persevere and endure.
Sobre again is one of these concepts that in order to fully understand, you know, appreciate it you have to really look at
multiple ways of of defining it or translating it. So Allah subhanaw taala says to the prompts, I said in the beginning of this mission of his and his dour, that he must endure and be patient, and persevere and be steadfast, this is not going to be easy. This is not going to be easy. So a lot of young again reminds him that the Lord that you are supposed to glorify Subhan Allah to Ireland, who is the greatest superpower that
you know, is the one that for whose sake you must endure.
So Allah subhanaw taala will help you
I'm a problem solver was set up with regards to the sub
that a data yell or someone that engages people or does advocacy or community service requires the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam tells us in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala, that a person who engages people, and endures is better than a person that doesn't engage people and doesn't have to endure anything. And they do harder on us, as
well as little let down. And then this actually also, there's a huge lesson for those of us who have passion to do this type of work, people who want to
serve the public, that if you're in it, because you want to be celebrated, you want to be validated, you want to be,
always glorified and respected, then then you're, you're in the wrong business here. That doesn't always happen, as a matter of fact, right? The lives of agenne tells us about all of his privacy messengers that every single one of them had to endure and how to deal with abusers, the haters with trolls, had to deal with people who did not accept their message is message of how Allah last night that was just in that is exactly precisely why was the agenda.
One of the reasons Allah azza wa jal tells the prophesy so that about the stories of the prophets beforehand, that you're not the only one who was rejected, you're not the only one who was denied. You're not the only one who was being abused. You know, remember those who are before you prophets and messengers, and that's why the prophesy said that we used to,
to recall sometimes, you know, what,
what the prophets before him had to endure. So for instance, when one of the hypocrites one time
question the Prophet sallallahu, it was emblems, actions and judgment, and said that, you know,
whatever the prophets I send them did, and it was after the Battle of flame, the Prophet SAW Allah at least seven gave some of his companions, more of the spoils of war than others, and some he didn't give anything so someone
from the hypocrite says, This is not fair. And this is something that
ALLAH SubhanA that was not done for the sake of a lot of soldier.
And I'm loving Mr. Woods brought this to the prophets of Allah, they said,
attention. So the prophets of Allah was salam responded to this grace Fellini says, and who would be more fair that Allah and His Messenger something similar? And then he reminded himself, he said, Rahim, Allah Anamosa, may Allah have mercy on Musa
all the objects that I mean,
he was harassed and abused,
with something much more than this Salawat to lie within them, or they imagined it. And he was patient. So the problem was, I'm used to remember remember every call, what Prophets and messengers before him had to go through. So for every day and for every one of those who want to be of the heirs of the prophets of Allah, why they must send them and assume this mission of our calling people to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, this is a reminder that you have to from the get go know that this is not going to be an easy ride and that you have to endure and you have to be patient for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala, that your reward is in lies with Allah azza wa jal. So, do not
seek any reward through your actions other than what Allah subhanaw taala brings your way subhanaw taala
and do not make sure that you shun any filth and you stay away from any method or any tradition or any action that could actually
that could, that could ruin or that actually even goes against or is in conflict with the spirit of your of your data. So sometimes people feel like you know, some alliances or some compromises or practices may help there cause a loss of habitat especially the prophets of Allah they said look, what reads affect your shed idols and idolatry. Stay away from all of that. You don't need any of that.
And before that, Allah Subhana Allah says to him with yeah with of Allah, beautify your garments. And by the way, when we talk about purifying our garments, this comes after,
you know, making sure that we purify our
intentions and our inside right well
Kimber, so keep that in mind that the to go hand in hand the worst thing is to see someone you know who's well dressed, who looks so pure and clean from the outside from the inside they're full of filth or their intention is what I have to believe that may Allah Subhana Allah make our
make the state of our
contention and our make it better than how we appear from the outside.
So these were the seven verses that allows those ever be able to aspire for so while I do sell them Let me recite them again Charlotte Allah to you and I want you to really do your own reflections as to how that you yourself personally would relate to these verses Allah subhana data such as the Prophet SAW allah how to send them
Yeah, your death see on
the way back if it can be what the better Felco here what rouge is FL yo
When you're up, be careful us we're almost $100 Thank you and I have those who follow the prophetic example. And then lots of how to how to purify our souls and men loss of habitat and make use of those who stand their ground and call to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for the sake of Allah azza wa jal not for any worldly gain in their lives, we can increase our reward in the hereafter. It may Allah subhanho wa Taala reunite us with our
pure and righteous ancestors And our teachers and
guides. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the NBA prophets and messengers before him. And our brothers and sisters who inspired us to this life and may Allah subhanaw taala shower
loved Sheikh Mohammed Sherif Ali Rahmatullah with his Pharisee Subhan Allah as I was reflecting on these verses, how I remembered a discussion in some of the talks that he gave around these verses as well. So this has been somehow an emotional moment for me as to how Allah
may Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on him something very interesting, I want to show one is
in which he actually discusses this, is that
just out of the blue when I was looking at some old collections Subhanallah someone had and I found I found this
this is that a kiss? I think, is that a CD? Over this that's the CD set. Jeff anomaly Sharif is one of these
courses that I myself you know, listen to listen to the entire thing. I couldn't attend it in person. But this is one of the earliest of my live seminars, pickoff Dawa,
guiding to Allah by the book. So, and he brings up this whole concept of how it was how to gather all the prophesy send them to action and together with to warn people to engage them and for people to Allah subhanho wa Taala Be patient and he gives great tips in it as to how to call to a loss.
So if anyone has access to it, or if it's available online, please by all means, listen, listen to it. Keep in mind that this though Allah azza wa jal is addressing the problem so a lot he said that when he said Yeah, even will differ. But this really applies to anyone who consider considers himself or herself, a follower of the Prophet SAW Allah said that we need to get up uncovered, not uncovered, but we need to get up and throw some of these covers and that that we have, and go out there and engage and call people to Allah subhanaw taala does our long prayer. If anyone has any questions or reflections, please feel free to interject or to share that Michelle
is Camilla Farish? Yeah.
Subhanallah sorry, someone's asking what's the name of the book again?
The name of the collection? collection. I think that's the book right?
A CD sets 18 CDs and it's called guiding to Allah subhanaw taala guiding to Allah by the book
Yeah, this is a seminar offered and it was published by Yvonne rush back in the days and again I didn't plan this by the way it will lie it was it was just froze since I found it it was just sitting there and I noticed it right now before we started the session and and it just how a lot i i became emotional so I was like I was just saying that there's no such thing as a shaman talk without a little bit of show and tell. So I'm going to pull that in and Subhanallah actually I don't know if you know actually remember that but we actually we released a couple of the old classes and she remember the stream that I had taught because we had we were able to collect the audio. I know
nobody has CD players anymore I most people don't have speakers. So we were able to get good quality audio clean it up and then posted on the legacy as a legacy podcast so it's on Apple podcasts, Google Play etc. So if you guys want to kind of reminisce and you haven't had a chance to learn from Sean Hammond in the past we have the shepherd's path and we have another class coming up there Hamlet as well so hopefully we can get we can find a good quality version of this one or maybe we'll borrow it from you sure how much I'm sure Sharma it's
that heavy and his abilities and I think this is the first time that we've connected or we've seen you since actually of how it's passing. So it is bittersweet all the lessons all the reflections all the some especially this topic specifically he was the king of this because he was able to stay removed from the from the negative effects sometimes of being in a position of teaching and leadership and mashallah his His personality was so perfect for him and his his style of teaching was so beautiful mashallah male likes that from him. Any questions that we have for shift on the topic of these first few verses of sermon that there feel free to drop those inshallah in the chat?
I don't see anything that's on topic right now but let me see if I missed anything and I see people legacy as linking that Legacy series so yes, does that cliff Harper doing that? It's at a blogger dot online forward slash legacy. But you can see it anywhere Apple Store, sorry, Apple podcasts Google Play, or any podcast app that you use. I get it on Spotify.
Do they? Do they have this particular?
No, they don't have this particular I don't know that. I will check I will check because there's another one coming up. And hopefully we can get as much of his old content as possible. It's really beautiful. Honestly, the quality is great. And it feels like he closed your eyes. You can imagine that your seat you're sitting in a room front row seat and share how it is right there. And so
Okay, someone was able to find a link to it. I think that they have to the to some of the recordings. That's amazing. Insha Allah, I'm gonna check that out afterwards as well.
I think we're too caught up in reflecting and reminiscing and Hamdulillah. But does that come along here that was really important, practical, because I know people, especially those who are involved in the Dawa, and mashallah, we have a very engaged community, some of these folks are doing such big things in their local communities, that sometimes disappointment from people can kind of mess with your intentions or can mess with your, your desire to keep going. And it's a reminder that, you know, if you're being tested, it's a good thing. It's, it's everyone gets tested, who's who's sincere, subhanAllah someone did just want to leave a comment today. It's a beautiful dog, and they
appreciate that you took a moment to do that just like a locker check. It's such a pleasure to have you on Ramadan. 360. Just before you leave, I did mention in the beginning, any kind of advice that you can give to those who are trying to get as much as they can eat out of the last bit of Ramadan before even the not last 10 Nights kick off, because sometimes people just wait until last 10 nights in that you can tell us to help us get in the mode and Sharla
Yeah, it was really good also. So our so that we just one piece of advice, actually, you know, having a head start.
And to start with,
like, just, you know, really getting into the last 10 days before the last time I began, is really important. And the countdown actually started, right. So, so some people are waiting for. As a matter of fact, it's very interesting that you said this because some people ask the question, they say, when did the last 10 Nights begin? Is it on the 20th night? Or than it? What is it that the 20th night or the 20? The 21st night? And I'm like what why does that matter? How do you know that you're going to be still alive until the 20th? The 21st? You know, that's number that's one question that you have to really ask yourself, nobody knows take advantage of whatever you have overmold on
that's number one. Because maybe your last 10 Nights might be like may have already started.
Yeah. The last night that individual of Ramadan may have already started. So why wait.
what is more important, you know, the tip that I give people is if you wait to start until the very
First day of the last 10 nights, and let's say you don't have like the best start, things don't really your schedule or let's say your productivity or your focus is not at its best. Now you're going to feel like, okay, the first day wasn't that great, I missed, I missed out. Now I only have nine days, I was thinking to really do well in all the 10 days. So, but if you start like two or three days, or whatever amount of days you have beforehand, and warm up, so by the time that 10, the last 10 days begin, you're already
you're already at your best, right, you are able to recover from any
say, from any deficiency from from any scheduled conflict, you know, so, so take advantage of whatever time you have right now leading up to the last 10 Nights, work on your drive. You know, work on your car, you know,
work on your schedule, if you need to. And by the way, this is something that you shall be rewarded for. If there is anything that you need to do that you want to get out of the way, get it done right now. Right any anything that you need to prepare for read anything that you need to do for your family before you go there to tap or before you go on a very, you know, strict regiment in the last 10 Nights, any work that you need to get done any school project that you need to finish, get all done a shout out to other with the intention of really focusing on a bad day in the last 10 nights in the shower, you will be rewarded for that as well and with me that also count for you as an act
of worship in preparing for this great opportunity that we have realized, allow you to experience this again and again and again. May Allah subhanaw taala make this Ramadan, the best of Ramadan and allow us to experience number one again and again.
eautiful technology that was actually even more beautiful and relevant that I was even expecting. I'm like trying to finish my taxes before the lesson Nice.
So just like go love her. She is such a pleasure to have you back with us hon nan 360. And shall we look forward to catching you soon online or in person? Anything that you can before you go? Anything that you're looking forward to that you're doing close Ramadan that we can follow you for join? Yeah, if feedback and inshallah
from everyone is is helpful,
by the way, you know, I am right now. Well, I have been for the past since 2019. With Memphis Islamic center no longer
No, they did that. Yeah. In terms of area, America's largest Islamic center.
Not Not New York's largest North America's largest Islamic center, Memphis, Tennessee, Charlotte Memphis Islamic center. You know, go to our website, you can tune in. And, you know, go to our YouTube channel. Watch the tour we live. Tonight. We have an amazing audit coming tomorrow. Also we have
a young got a beautiful recitation and then join us for the rest of the night's show. Allah will share that link and Telegraph's that you guys as well, just like Lakeisha was such a pleasure
to see some very simple analysis and I'm getting
ready, just like Kamala Harris was I don't know where you're asking him to come to in Sharla. It's Memphis assignment center. Yes. And we'll drop those links that share common mentioned in the the telegram group so that you guys can keep up. I hope that you really enjoyed that. That was good, kind of reinvigorating advice as well at the end there and hand that over. And I see that Tennessee folks speaking up much here in the chat or credit to Tennessee. And with that being said, I know we are anxiously awaiting I feel like these weekend sessions or they feel so short because there's such a big gap in between, but I'm glad Dr. Mahathir came is back with us for our second last weekend of
Quran reflect with him in sha Allah, as we cover these first five verses of Surah Madatha just like McAfee joining us Dr. Mohammad Inshallah, let's kick off Bismillah any any quick reflections that come to mind, you know, you've been listening to the session martial arts in the very beginning, but anything that comes to mind for you, so now welcome, everyone. Fala again, the discussion I watched from Hamid Sharif never ends and his legacy and technically, maybe the the summary of that, or what I thought about it during reflection. Chef Muhammad Sharif did a lot of come from there. He applied this surah in his life. He did a lot of Dawa and we remember him a lot for it. Subhanallah so it's
amazing how even when he recorded some of his lectures on tapes and CDs on Allah as long as there's true intention and sincere didn't
mention that Davao will stay will keep going Subhanallah that voice will keep delivering the message of Islam even after we pass away we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant all of us sincerity and last inshallah
something that's not as well known is that Shem humble was also a mentor for a lot of the big speakers not only through a mugger that came out but within the Muslim community, some people who weren't even who are not publicly associated with us or anything like that. So some of these these speakers who people have gone through really difficult times publicly or who thought of quitting the that way or things like that, you would often give them private advice and Shura and insurance and all that kind of stuff. So we have so much to think in terms of people that you don't even know that are associated with whichever Hamid and his work and he would encourage them and when they would go
through difficult times, you'd be the first to message and check in on them and make sure that their weather this storm, because I know that the internet can be really cruel and harsh and difficult for us to manage, especially for those who are public speakers. So may Allah make it easy to
affect his overarching it's unimaginable. I mean, I mean, so I have another general kind of announcement, which is the Quran reflect website and how you can record your own reflections on that platform. Did we discuss this before SR Hafsa that we, we have we just introduced it and humble I know, some people have been, you know, checking out or on reflect.com the same name as this series, but we haven't had a chance to formally put any activity towards it. Okay, so let me I think I've gotten suggestion from the team and reflect is to walk people through how you can record your own reflections and maybe see other people's reflections as well. So let me do this really quick because
I believe there's always a benefit and just go walking like going through a demo for you know, kind of a demo. So can you guys see my screen
Yes, we can see it 100 Okay, perfect. So let's say I am reading certain data for example, we will go through there before you can always go to the q&a Reflect website from the quran.com So for example, this area will Rebecca foster where you can
you can read that series you can reflect here so when you want to reflect on well Rebecca Fosbury and you click on this it will take you to the core and reflect
menu and you can add some can read some reflections in here you know, but if you want to add your own reflections you will have to go to the website so for example when the rock big festival so I am on chapter number 74. So till Mudassar a number seven so let me copy be a number. So I can go for and reflect website, for example and let's say I put certain with destiny as seven.
This allows me to read again, other reflections by for example, Amritsar duty one of the phenomenal
reflectors and contributors to the website, masha Allah. And let's say I read something that I like, I can always comment on the website and I can share my own comments the como lo,
Allahu right on. So the reason why I'm encouraging people to go on that platform is because mashallah on the telegram group are gonna reflect, we have amazing notes, reflections, links, all of these are being shared at the moment, which is great. But think about could I reflect as a storage place where you can store your reflections, and they will be very Inshallah, to Allah inshallah until the end of time, as long as the internet is there, your reflections will be recorded, your comments, your notes, your RE compilation of someone else's notes. Sometimes we assume we think that, Oh, I'm not good enough to interpret or reflect on the Quran because I don't know much. Well,
guess what, most of the scholars did not invent this information from scratch. But they did, they just recompile the information. And they presented it differently. So I have here in this group, we have 179, on Zoom, 180 on Zoom, and we have maybe more folks outside on on YouTube, all of us could become students of knowledge servants of the Quran, and we can use the platform to record our reflections. So, so again, we posted a comment, we can post a reflection
it's called posting a reflection will require you to simply have an account so you need to have an account there and Shala and see I'm in this area and I can let's say put
seven out I can also put on with desert six, for example. You know what? Dyslexia will never be confer severe. So when I hit that reflect, so now I can you reflect on this.
So I'm so so just, I can always post my reflection. I can always add hashtags. So the hashtag that we're trying to collect all of Al Maghrib 360 reflection
EMS is called a narrative reflects. So when you add your reflection on a given
a given Surah try to add the hashtag and reflect so that we can index them we can search all of them as together. We have Anna, sister Anna who basically reflected something on from Zurich landcare booth. I remember watching that series and that reflection by Chef Ahmed Salim is sister Anna with us today she also we give her a shout out
No it's the same sister Anna from Manila who has been dropping the beautiful gems and notes here and there in chat if it is shout out to you mashallah, whoever it is.
If she's with us can we just
do their can raise your hand
Michelle there's a few consistent Anna's sister Anna Chavez is there as well. Okay. Okay, masha Allah so that's great. And it looks like she had other reflections as well that were not tagged with a metric reflect so she started using the platform for elementary reflections and also for other Quran reflections, which is great, which is exactly what the tool what the platform is used for. So please make sure that you document most of your notes there and inshallah it will be sadaqa jariya. For you, Hamdulillah, Masha, Allah, many scholars, many students of knowledge are posting their reflections. And again, we are not asking people to do Tafseer of the Quran. We are asking people
after they learned that that's the year after they really understand what Allah subhanaw taala is saying. The reflection is the question is how can this help me how can this this year helped me in my life? Well, this being said, you guys ready? Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, Sheikh Muhammad Sharif Masha, Allah Allah, Allah did an amazing job and, you know, narrating as Reverend resume the context of revelation and he shared a lot of gems, which honestly, I preferred also as well, which is awesome because it's great when you hear when you're reading something and you see Oh, Mashallah. It's being mentioned, which is awesome. Let me start with a big reflection question. So we have
Surah Al Mudassar. Watch star starts with Yeah, you have that fear. And we have a surah that came right before it Surah Al Muslim mill, Allah subhanaw taala was saying, yeah, a U haul Muslim mill. And the big reflection question is, what are the analogies? What are the what are the differences? And what are the similarities between Surah tell Mudassar and Surah tell Mozambique? So I really want to hear from you guys from your information from what from what you heard from Sheikh Mohammed. Fourthly, does Allah here and others
okay, it's just a regatta that Kamala Harris please feel free to unleash your reflection creativity inshallah. So Farzana alma de fer vs. El
animism with this Mala, let me open.
Hola, el Sheikh in the first is rural Muslim. And when we talk about the garment, it's a loose garment. It's sort of a blanket or a sheath that's wrapping there. So last will allow himself to come out of that fear or that fever that was caused because of the, the, the side of the entrance. And in the second one, Allah subhanaw taala talks about the garment, the stitch garment that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is wearing, or we can even say the personality of Rasulullah saw a loved
one, whatever was reflected from his personality, his character, his his behavior, rather, like what a sort of a die he was, and what he made us learn from his, I would say elsewhere, Hassan Subhan, Allah and what they are for us to learn and what's there for us to ponder and what's there for us to act on Alhamdulillah
Allah shake it off.
So in other words, what you said is in sync with a lot of what scholars mentioned, I have here this comment that other Muslim male is the one who is covered while being asleep.
For Allah told him Yeah, au Hello Muslim mil Oh, you who is wrapped up while being asleep, stand up and pray at night. And along with that fear as someone who's covered up while being awake, you know, sometimes you want to feel comfy or cold. You just, you feel like, lazy a little bit, and you don't want to move. Yeah, you're the one who is covered up but he is awake or she is awake. Allah is telling the one who is being covered up while being awake, confident will stand up and deliver, stand up and rise and go to deliver that hour. There are many integrations
One of the traditions I know chef Muhammad, Allah had mentioned many generations about Muslim men and Madatha. And which one comes, came first, another narration that came that and it could be that the surah was revealed multiple times. You know, there's different ways, in some traditions that it was revealed after m Clutha. And ye, after the disconnect or discontinuation of the way, one story one direction that prophet Mohamed Salah Salem heard that Al Walid no Maria, one of the chieftains one of the leaders of the Federation, he made a whole invited Quraysh for a big meal. And they started plotting to
to insult the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and to distract people from listening to the Quran. He was in the early days of Dawa, and they already started plotting against him. So when the Prophet SAW Salem, when he heard about that, he got disappointed. He got discouraged. He was like, Oh, my God, they are going to do this to me, ultimately Valiquette what? So he got very disappointed, and he started wrapping himself in a way that I don't want to work anymore. And this shows us the human side of the prophets, Allah Salam, that sometimes he would give, he would think about giving up and the Quran come and tell him yeah, you have that fear. Come under, stand up. So Al Muslim mill, told
the prophets of salaam to take one form of laziness, one form of negativity, and stand up in the prayer and Alma DeSalle told him to remove another form of laziness and stand up and deliver the message, which tells us something very profound. The difference between Korea Malaysia and Korea Manohara l Muslim male thought the messenger to Salalah seldom about doing TM arising up in the night. And LM Odessa told the prophets Allah seldom to rise up in the day. And here's the big question to you. And again, I want you to really squeeze every ounce of LM not only creativity of LM and information to tell me to answer what is the difference between Korean Malay Yamaha I know many
of us have never heard the
the term Yamaha but it's in front of us Surah Al Modesitt is all about the Yamaha that complements pmla And if that's exactly what Chef Mohammed mentioned to us, okay Bismillah. So,
anyone wants to share again the Yamuna har, in general, in this surah and in, in other aspects from what we learn, the MLL is private, beautiful. There is a private moment between you and Allah subhanaw taala Yamuna heard in the most form, it's the community service. It is the Dawa, it is the activism. It could be public, and we need both of them. Right. It's wrong as Sheikh Mohammed said beautifully, it's wrong to assume that you can make it to Jannah with only Korean Malay or with only Korean Mala. And what happens if somebody only does preamble like they just pray and the room meaning that they don't do any Dawa. They don't want to try to reform and help the community and
what happens when somebody does only Yamaha What do you guys think?
They complement each other anyone wants to tell us what what what happens when what when the Muslim ummah goes to one of two extremes what happens abandons in both sure exactly somebody is saying no that our if somebody says their rehab and somebody could have be very spiritual, but with no Dawa. No one is benefiting from them, and the other person could be hypocrisy. Imagine someone who does.
Who does Dawa a lot and they serve the community, but they don't have their own share of private moments with Allah subhanaw taala I know. It was mentioned before my book, The 40 Hadith on community service, which is an attempt to collect before the Hadith that teach Muslim servants and leaders what are the what is the Prophetic wisdom on serving the community? One of the hobbies out there Hades number seven, Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem told the community after amo bomb was still our ham after Yohannes Astra Salam o promoter was still our ham or son Luba Layli. When nurse when the M the total janitor this LM sobre la seldom by the way this hadith was the whole hotspot it just
gave the sort of dropped this gems and sat down sub Allah He was Elena will people assist the lamp spread the peace well after emerald bomb and feed the hungry and what was celular ham and connect with your family was sudden Luba Layli, one nurse and em and pray at night when everyone is asleep. You enter Jana with peace, again, beautiful Hadith that mentions both Yama Nihar and Korea moonlight
Okay, I see I see mashallah a lot. A lot of gems are being dropped here mashallah not not not modeling the full sunnah if you only do one, but not the other type
we are advised to be on Masato Amelia nation eautiful mashallah type
it reminds me Subhanallah when we talk about Klamath Lake versus Yamuna har that one of the preachers one of the callers to Islam when he made that hour to his community, he basically started he was going through a lot of you know struggles and you know, distractions but he kept focused and he resulted, amazing Masha Allah Dawa and many people accepted Islam the Quran Rahman Sumit Rahim Allah to Allah He was asked how were you able What is your secret? How were How was your Dawa effective and he said a profound statement that out hola hola homefree lane without to whom finna hurt I called Allah subhanho wa Taala for them at night I made the art and my family for the out to
the home without to confront her and I called them to Allah subhanaw taala during the day type so I hope that this makes sense and we start understanding what are the our can of pm and Mahara? So Claire Malay most of us by now know what pm Nihar is so what Tamil Lael is most of us knows it's either very bad or test be or do or praying from your antenna or what have you. Let's look at Surah Al Odesza. Again, and consider and look for and put our Quran reflect lenses on and try to understand how can we implement How can we practice pm and Mahara? What do you guys think?
Okay, so we are looking at the whole Surah we are going to go through area by area. But I really want us to once we understand the analogy between Claremont family, let us see again, think about the Quran as being a handbook for Muslim Dawa. This is an instruction manual that's telling us step by step. What do you need to do in order to be an effective day in order to implement for bit evil, we have Zack Mala head, where is forbidding evil mentioned in
so that I limit that.
So somebody mentioned so what l Mudassar.
Forbidding evil, where is it mentioned?
Comfort and virtues. Alchemilla hear something very profound and very important. So the number two, arise. And Warren, notice that we always talk about that we're having both the rib and the heap, we should have feared and we should have hope. We should remind people our should give people glad tidings and we should give them warning. However, notice that this area number two, Allah subhanaw taala is telling the Prophet sallallahu Sallam home for me. He started with warning, because it is wrong sometimes to rely only on glad tidings. It is wrong as a day as somebody who should understand human psychology as somebody who understand this message and he sees or she sees how people might be
complacent. If we only focus on the territory, and only the positive, the end of the encouragement, but we don't do the warning. It might be an imbalanced power Subhanallah so much so that our scholars tell us that we hear a lot about el amor when maruf when he and Ivanka that enjoying the good and forbidding the evil, some, some might be imbalanced and they do enjoining good more than forbidding evil. And our scholars actually tell us that forbidding evil in many times could be a good have a higher priority than admirable models. And they mentioned the idea from spirit, neither Latina woman Bani Israel Isla de Santi the OODA where you said no Maria Valley can be my castle,
where can we add a dune? Can we get an A Helena? I'm uncaring. falou actually, I mean, I need I need to put the area here because it is a very profound area. It is cursing those who basically did not
who did not enjoy forbidden evil. The disbelievers from the bene Israel were condemned on the throng of bare wood and the instrument Imodium because of their disobedience. valla Karima so what can we do? Can we lay down and non caring for Allah Allah did not talk about hon maruf here Allah did not talk about enjoying a good Allah talks about for so reading it
Evil, they did not forbid one another from doing evil, which shows us that sometimes as there is we have to be, we hear about being balanced in our message. But we have sometimes to have to have the the audacity, the courage to stop the evil. Everyone will will agree with you if you tell them to, to, to be spiritual or to pay for the needy, nobody will disagree with this people are comfortable with LML remodels, what people are not comfortable with, and this is the difficult conversation that everyday needs, which is what an animal can forbidding evil. And that's what comfort and there is telling us Subhanallah type. But so you are going to warn people confirm there and tell them and
remind them and have these difficult conversations. What's going to happen inside your heart, you will tell yourself but they will kill me. They might disagree with me. I may not speak well. I'm afraid of this and that I might lose my job, I might lose my social status, they will start judging me. And this is where a number three is so important in our data manual in our instructions of Korean War a Becca
and your Lord alone this Sheikh Mohammed software you may Allah reward him, alluded to this, that Allah did not say cap bear rub back. Allah did not say do tech be to your Lord. Allah said to your Lord do tech Kabira right, which means to Allah only to Allah exclusively to Allah alone, because someone again, might worship Allah and their days. They might be used to praise Allah but phrase other other deities. What up Becca? And here's another question. Back to the question for Yama, Lyle versus Graham on the Hara. How can you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala in your Korea Mahara? What's the difference? We all know what the Kabir is in Korea, Malaysia, just say Allahu Akbar, while you
are praying. Now how can you practice that to be here in your life? How can you practice that beer in your data? How can you practice that beer while you are taking that spiritual energy and spreading it among the people?
Okay, fear Allah alone, not other people or other things. Yes, exactly. Rehab Allah He Belfie community coming up, feeling Allah subhanaw taala. Alone, glorifying Allah and public. Yes, of course, glorifying Allah good manners when people see the impact of your Eman on your,
on your data and your manners, acknowledging that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is greater and more important than anything that Kabir Allah subhanaw. Taala refers to also priorities, that what the priority that Allah sets is Akbar, you know Akbar, it means Allah is greater. So it's greater than something. So you know, that's something that's being mentioned, we have to always be aware that Allah is greater than whatever it comes, comes to us.
Carrying on this, even if you don't see the fruits, Allahu Akbar, this is beautiful. Even if you don't see
the fruits because Allah is the one who puts the Allah is the one who puts the effort that results not me, not my effort, which is something every day or every color to Allah subhanaw taala should understand. Sometimes we have these change maker awards. Sometimes they say they have this idea of Be the change that you want to see in your world. We want to make an impact in the world we want to do impact one a change that word. Well we'll have to understand something as Muslims, let's be clear, we don't change the word. Allah changes that word. Right? Allah is the One who is the the change maker. We're only means we're on the you know we are we are doing that. We are worshipping
Allah we are slaves of Allah who are trying to Yanni do the effort but Allah is the one who puts the
results of hunt Allah.
What up Becca for Kepware five, Yama ln requires purifying ourselves in the world who are hostile, making sure that our clothes that our body that our
that our place of worship is clean. To Yamaha requires Allah another form of cleanliness, which is what was the year Becca for Tahira? Who can reflect on us for us on number four iron number four. And what does it mean to have bought here purifying our garments when we do the Yamaha sister rod
Yeah, I took it as like you need to present yourself well, that if you are going to do Dawa everybody the first thing they're going to do is look at you how do you look if you're disheveled and whatever, they're not going to even gonna want to hear your message. But if you look present to
ball and you look nice. You know then everybody's gonna want to hear what you have to say. You know people judge by your look so you have to make your clothes clean you have to make sure you what you're wearing is nice and then you know you can present because the message is beautiful. So you have to make sure that you look the same as the message is worth. So panela Zack and will love here our data taharah should reflect that Ohara in our hearts should reflect in the way we are dressed, beautify yourself inside out. impress others with your cleanliness that will reflect the Sahara in sight you are FIFA. Anyone wants to add to this
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu.
Allah, I love my son Leo Ascendant, ala Nabina, Muhammad,
the to purify your heart, like your heart, could have many kinds of idolatry
of shirk, in our hearts, whether we know it, or we might not know it. So it is like cleaning your heart purifying your heart.
Now, does that block it? So we're talking about Inner Inner form of cleanliness, but also the scholars also mentioned Yeah, that's that's beautiful.
Tight now this will take us to anyone who wants to comment on this lemmya Lima?
Yes, somebody come. So I want to say like also purifying your actions and what you do outwardly as well, not just your heart because other people like the sister mentioned earlier, will see your actions and they will judge you based on that as well. So purifying them as well. And having the right intention for them. No, no, Subhan Allah, Allah has declared we're very fickle. Okay, moving to number five, what route is a fragile? What are the major again, this has multiple meanings it could refer to rich also, it refers to, you know, a, you know, filth on our uncleanliness and for her to abandon and avoid filth. And somebody mentioned, some scholars mentioned that chef, Hamad
alluded to this, which is like shunning idols or abandoning idols. But something that's so important here about Trad jour Is that
is that it requires not only shunning idols and stopping and staying away from them. Sometimes it requires boycotting, sometimes it requires clear distance, clearly distancing ourselves from urges from anything that relates to idols. Now, any now
maybe the first question is, is there any area and Surratt elements XAML that has a similar word that has a similar verb that has a similar
Yes, could you just repeat the question? So the question is Allah subhanaw taala in the Surah about Yamuna heart is telling us what Roger roger so abandon and boycott and shut down all kinds of filth that comes from the idols is there is an area in the previous Surah Surah Al Muzammil that teach us at that has a very close command that has a very similar command.
And she Irani I think mashallah you were able to get the surah what is that? What is the surah? Allah subhanaw taala?
Allah subhanho wa Taala is studying the Prophet in scepter 73
What's the Rolla yaku Luna? What Jura home had run jameelah. Again, certain Muslim mill is in the context of the Yama lane you're standing. The Prophet Muhammad wa Salam is standing that night, he is praying to Allah subhanho wa taala. He is getting the spiritual energy that he needs in order to do Yamanaka right. So Allah subhanaw taala now is telling him what's better, Allah may just be patient, they will say a lot of trash, they will insult you a lot. They will do character assassination, they will start inventing stories on you. They will start throwing labels at you was Varada Yahoo Don't be patient they are Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was Jerome had urine jameelah
and depart from them in a very nice and gentle way. The word Jamila is required like you know, just be patient with them and be nice in the way you abandoned. You know
There are accusations right now in Surah dealing with this sir Allah subhanaw taala extending him what Raja Fahad you're completely there's there's some more stricter command. He didn't tell him Judo Mahajan. Rimula here because sometimes as a day as a caller to Allah subhanaw taala you need to have to draw the clear boundaries. Yes, I might accompany some friends who might not be the best practicing Muslims or the ones who may not be practicing our Muslims at all. But sometimes you need to draw the clear line. So that a I'm not part of this. I don't agree with this. And this is particularly important when there is riba when there's backbiting involved. You know, as one of the
matrimonial said yet yeah rasool Allah me so many well sorry yes Allah I protect my ears and my eyes from whatever riba from other whatever slander that's being discussed. So this idea of your home as as do add, sometimes we think that I should always be that nice person, the one who is, you know, peaceful, and I want to avoid getting into any, you know, discomfort with people. Sometimes as a day you need to be strict you need to show that sometimes we're rude the fragile Subhanallah type.
Type, we come to the bottom on the stack.
Okay, what's the structure how did we how the check Mohammed explain it. And how does this add to our data manual? How does this tell us and teach us about the Yamaha What do you guys think? Bismillah.
Well, Tim known the structure there's so much in this areas of Hanalei very deep area do not do it for the sake of faithful Okay, do it for the sake of Allah of course make sure that you are that you have the right intentions and sincerity what else have solid do not expect your status and reward in this word beautiful sister Leymah
is somebody come again? So I'm gonna say like most some people they do a favorite for other people and they expect that person to do them a favor back it shouldn't be like that that reward should come from Allah subhanaw taala and you know like that and his award is the most inshallah
beautiful what happens okay Fadwa
first of all, I feel that if someone is succeeding can do the a pm in the heart they have to have to relate that to the success comes from Allah's first who's the one give the support and make you do that first now is not because you're clever or you're smart, you can do it or you have the knowledge it's from a lot less from
what are some non tech stocks their brother or sister iPhone
and it's gonna make you
think it's also important to not remind people of what we've done for them, if we don't it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala because it actually takes away the good deed, I think it's in Surah Baqarah is 264, that Allah will take away the good deeds that you got from that. deed, if you remind people of it a
lot of the Corticon will manual other beautiful, beautiful. So Subhanallah the idea of not expecting something in return, and really doing it for the sake of Allah is very tricky. The first example as people, we expect that people will pay us and no, we're not doing this for the money. Of course, we're doing this for the sake of Allah. The main problem with expecting from people, any form of feedback, any form of thanks, any form of gratitude is that we as the art become dependent on the people we become dependent on their phrase become, we might be dependent on them, acknowledging us, and that's where Allah subhanaw taala is telling the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, that you are going
to be delivering a lot of service to Allah and His creation, understand something, you're not doing Allah a favor. You're not doing people a favor. You're doing yourself a favor. I think the message here that's so important is number six, and certainly the data is telling us Don't be transactional in your data. Don't give so that you can take don't offer so that you can get something you will do a lot of unnoticed act SubhanAllah. Even when it comes to public data, even the speakers for example, who might give a lecture and it benefits millions of people. Most of their work is done
Aside from the stage, we just heard, I want to share Muhammad Sharif, that most of the impactful work that he has done was a phone call between him and another fellow that are a student of knowledge. Somebody who was coaching someone who was mentoring, most of the work that really matters is done behind behind the scenes away from the eyes of people while attempting to stack fear, lower the expectations set the bar very low or
set the bar very low and don't expect anything in return. Guess what Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala always will find a way to reward you spiritually. If you don't expect anything in return. You know, sometimes you will get positive feedback you will get somebody or Zach Allah here. This lecture helped me this advice helped me sometimes it will happen, guess what, as the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem told us that this praise that happens to you, without you asking for it, he says a lava lamp Tilka as you as you know Bashar Al movement, this is the immediate result from for a believer, this is the downpayment of the huge reward that you will get in the afterlife. But
again, as far as our, to our training as a day, our mindset and our expectations and our spirituality while attempting on the structure. The main problem with expecting anything in return is that you will the stacks and stacks there is from Tesla or Kasi, you will assume that you have done too much. The problem was expecting praises from the people. If you got a praise or two, you will think to yourself I have done so much. I've done I've done my due diligence. So you know what, let me stop doing as there is we have understand that the reward is in the hereafter. Again, there is no instant gratification in Dawa, I work and work I worked and I work and I work and I am not
transactional because I expect the return from Allah and Allah subhanaw taala alone. While he rob Baker for severe weather optical festival and for your Lord alone, make sure that you are patient you're not being patient for anyone else. You're not patient so that you are showing that you are patient, you're doing this only to Allah subhanho wa Taala now, so the first seven, eight were basically the command.
Basically, you can say the Dawa manual for the Yamaha. Here's another question for you. If you remember previously in our dashboard, we talked about Alpha Sal Al Quran iya, meaning the ending of the surah the literally the last word or sometimes the last letter, or the way the AI will sound. So looking at certain Mudassar let's zoom out and look at the whole Surah can we identify the passages in the Surah only by viewing and looking and reflecting how the eye sounds, how the rhythm sounds towards the end, this is one of the beautiful ways of doing that bird is by just observing how they sound. And then you can tell, okay, the end of passage number one is here are there because the area
may not be a passage, like there are multiple, there could be a sentence. I could have multiple sentences, right, like full sentences and the Arabic grammar. And there might be a sentence that takes over multiple yet. So let me read the surah Mudassar and I want you guys in the somebody's raising their hand shirani Did you want to help us with this
sedan radical naturally shift I was thinking about something else like the iron number seven, like while Europe Baker was very strong. I was thinking if you want me to share that, of course, of course please. Okay. Bismillah so what I was thinking about like there's a lot of you know, message specific to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu I had to he was telling me this idea, you know, depending on the context and the kind of people he had to kind of deal with, you know, but for I think that in it for us is like you said that you know before that
you know do not be kind of transactional and do not do a favor expecting more in return. So when we are you know, as a die even we you know talk about Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, it's going to be like, it's inevitable that we are going to face a lot of kind of repetition, we are not we are going to you know, face a lot of criticism and people are not most of the time for what love right at her home or in the community. So there will be a lot of challenges problems, you know, kind of we will not be liked by a certain people's and group is it at that time we have to be like kind of be patient, and we have to be patient with people not following us. We
have to be patient with people not actually
You know, taking the matter of Allah subhanho wa Taala seriously we have to be patient with people actually coming out and say bad things about not me or you but actually about Prophet salallahu it so in his message and at those time at that time we have to remind okay, this is only for the sake of Allah so that is why we have to be patient and Allah and Allah ma Siberian and then we have to think about the benefits that Allah offers when we are patient vertical recom okay so beautifully said I live every week so basically i And number six is telling us don't expect any any positive reaction from the people set the bar low on that and in case of negative reactions, which is the
mostly expected reaction well it up the capacitor so again, how to again the data that is beautiful and this how they you
know read of course can you read from I wanted to read from the beginning but try to read it in a quick rhythm you know Bismillah
certainly yes sir. No. Okay. How did you learn your shippon and regime stimuli are off man
yeah are you
up thank you forget forget
them but yeah but got phone call him Paul Rogers if you
a peek at Pulse mail
or leaking or wiring it I didn't get in earlier II brother Khalifa here's a question. Did the eye sound differently and where did they get sound had a different ending?
Like where he is? I see it in this year. Exactly. I see it yes here and there's no code right now code is different than the one before right? Yes. Okay. So we see how with Arabic And first of all we can tell from Ionic is seven they sounded very similar. So we can tell this is almost one passage one command one theme one theme and then for example Calif in code fidelity omitted in Yeoman I see adult caffeine allow you to yeah, see here and then we have another I can have someone else read for us.
Does that Allah here thank you so much for data Allah bless you may Allah pick you among the people of the Quran
Lima OH so many can which I actually start from
start from nine so that we know that actually from from 10 and until which I just read I will interrupt you
on the regime's Rahman Rahim I really care thing for you. You see, you're the old me woman Hala pituitary, the jackal Tula who mallam do the benei survey Nina she she who the one Remmina. But then Nina Shuda from a head to La boo tam Heda Tong mailto micro z the color who Kennedy it now I need a sir or he called her whoo hoo salt soda. In who *er we're called dark. But just did you notice how the ending of the IATA changed SubhanAllah. So this is one of the most obvious ways there are different ways that you know, philosophy is is a science by itself. It's a whole field where you need both the bore like reflection, you need to do that about with your mind with your heart with
your ear. And you can notice the difference and observe the beauty of the substance and the style of the words of Allah. At the same time. There is also science into it. So there's a quality element in this is that Kamala hair, Sister Leymah. So now if you if you keep on doing this and and this one is very obvious, you can tell how Allah says in Africa, our cutter faculty like a socket.
We can tell.
For example, it stays until a number
actually it goes until let me see or until I have 37 dementia, I'm income I gotta cut them out.
And then there's another facet, another topic another another theme. Cool enough st Bhima Kesava Raveena. Normally, if you had a longer time, we would just observe where does the passage start and end and we kind of highlighted or color it or what have you. And then we ask the participants to put a title or a theme for each one of those passages. And then you start looking at the layer and or the surah from a high levels of Han Allah. This is the macro level way of the word Allah to Allah
