I ask Allah to keep us strong upon guidance.
We recognize that there is no one worthy to be worshipped except Allah alone and we recognize that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final prophet and messenger. We ask Allah to shower our beloved messenger with compliments and salutations, along with his family and his companions and all of those who follow his sooner His perfect tradition until the end of time. May Allah make us of those who recite the Quran and listen to it and follow it. And may Allah make us of those who are inspired by the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu it was eliminated here to it.
Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran commands the believers to have couple of him to be righteous and pious, to be God conscious to be aware that Allah subhana wa tada as our master and Lord sustainer and nourisher is ever watchful over all of our statements and actions at all times. That is step one. And Allahu subhana wa tada commands us to make sure that we do not reach our exploration point except that we are in a state of submission, following Allah subhanho wa Taala His commandments and abstaining from his prohibitions, that is piety are the commands of the human being to reflect upon their very own creation. Well he unfussy come to Busan. Allah says within you within
your existence with this of the most amazing and beautiful and magnificent, if not one of the most of all of Allah subhanho wa Taala his creations and Allahu simpana within your lives and your bodies within your intellect and your intelligence within your emotions are so many signs of the greatness and the power of Allah subhana wa Taala do not see fit to basilone Allah subhana wa tada said of the creation of the human being, not by the Huracan an incentive he acts Anita cwieme Allah has created the human being in the most perfect and balanced form. And what that refers to, perhaps from one angle is that Allahu subhana wa tada has created us with a physical body, with organs, with cells
with bones with muscles,
that is so balanced and perfect and beautiful. Allah has also created us with intellect and with intelligence,
to process information to learn to understand cause and effect to process the world around us. Allahu subhana wa tada has also created us with this emotions, emotional intelligence, we feel we are not just robotic, where we just amass data and process it as numbers or as binary code. But we have feelings.
And a fourth component and dimension to our creation which is also vital for our existence is the role and the Spirit, the spiritual health of the human being. And Allah subhana wa tada has created us within within us the soul that is not tangible. That's not something you can see with any MRI or any imaging device. But it is there and it is what differentiates the living from the dead.
Now we live at a time where there is a lot of emphasis on physical health and well being and now there is more and more talk about emotional health and well being and that is very positive. And we talk about staying healthy and strong and strengthening our immune system. I got sick with the cold twice in the span of two months somebody came to me and said you really need to work on your immune system.
But I thought to myself, what about the spiritual immune system? Each of these different dimensions of our creation needs to be nourished
and what food and what you are eating like medicine before the day comes when medicine will be your food. So we are supposed to take care of ourselves.
But I thought to myself what about the spiritual immune system, each of these different dimensions of our creation needs to be nourished.
And when we look in the Quran we find this beautiful speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala the message that Allah subhana wa tada has given us, we find some anecdotes and some examples of how to maintain that spiritual health and immunity. If you were to ask someone that is afflicted with an illness, a lot grant you all good health and strength, a window where we can look into the state of being of disbelievers in the Hereafter, and see what is it that they would go back and change and say maybe I would avoid such and such activity or avoid such and such foods or I would try to do this or I would do that.
So how about when the Quran gives us one of the most powerful chapters of the Quran is solar moon,
which begins with the description of believers and how they attain success.
And within that sort of Allah subhana wa tada towards the end has some extremely powerful verses that are addressing the mushy Kuhn, the disbelievers specifically at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and what will become of those that were corrupted by the blessings that they enjoyed in the hereafter? Allah subhana wa tada says Hata either toffee him
either homea Joan, Allah subhana wa tada says, When everything is said and done with this dunya is over the hereafter comes and those that were corrupted by their wealth, and they abstain from accepting the truth. They abstained from following the messenger and Revelation. They will be crying out for help when the punishment of Allah subhana wa tada comes upon them, Allah protect us all from his punishment in anger.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
there's no point in you crying out for help on this day in acuminata Tucson. You won't find anyone that will protect you or grant you victory on this occasion in this circumstance, but they can add it to to the alikum aleikum. Allah subhana wa tada says there was a time in the past one of my verses were recited upon you for consume the content you soon but you turned and fled away arrogantly from the verses of Allah subhana wa Tada, mystic vt and abbyy Samuel into June.
And this short verse of just a handful of words, is what I'd like to focus on today.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said, the verses of Quran were recited upon you but you abstained, you turned away you ignored you rejected you disbelieved. Allah then describes their condition. Mr. kabiri in ob he Samuelsson Tarun Allah is addressing the pagan Arabs at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and ally mentions and critiques three terrible mistakes and pitfalls that they fell into something that we can look towards in a hopeful way so we can abstain from falling into those same mistakes. The first thing is Allahu subhana wa tada says, Mr. Comedian,
Mr. Comedian, when we look into the books of Tafseer, the scholars have taught us that most comedian they were arrogant. And we've spoken about arrogance, so many times, and we should speak about it more because it is a terrible disease of the heart We must protect ourselves from they were arrogant, but Allah says Mr. Comedian at bay, they were arrogant with it. And the scholars of Tafseer almost are in agreement that it is referring to the carrabba
the holy sanctuary of the Caribbean.
And the discussion and the meaning here is that these pagans were living in this place that was revered by so many. And they became arrogant because of it, meaning they sought it as a form of arrogance. We will never be destroyed, we will never be punished because we are that people living around the cabin. In essence, they were deluded by the blessings of Allah that they enjoyed in this world. There was some blessing, there was some gifts, there was some bounty, there was some greatness that they experienced. And instead of being grateful to Allah subhana wa tada for it, they fell into a sense of entitlement. We are special because we are people of the karma. We hear the
same mantras today. The decades have come and passed, but the attitude is still present. We are special because of our race, fill in the blank. We are special because of our socio economic status. You plug in the number, I am special because of my achievements. Nothing wrong will happen to me. Nothing bad could befall me because I've achieved this level of greatness. Therefore when why and revelation comes when the means of purifying and rectifying and improving and growing. comes in is rejected. Why repent? didn't do anything wrong? Who do I need to apologize?
To I don't need to apologize for anything you do you, I'm going to celebrate myself and whatever I want and enjoy. That's the attitude that we are taught today. Allah subhanho wa Taala says it is that very attitude that got them in the position where they are crying for help, but unless there's nothing wrong, there's no need to cry for help in Minnesota Tucson.
Mr. kabiri in a bear. That's why mama Sally has some beautiful lines, he says, never be diluted, even by the greatest blessing upon you, which is your piety and your religiosity. The greatest blessing we can have in our lives is that we are true servants of Allah subhana wa tada doing acts of obedience and worship. Everything is secondary to that. The scholar tells us don't even be diluted even by that. So he says when you see a child, think to yourself, this child is sinless, how many sins have amassed and collected in my life. When you see an elderly person, you shouldn't say to yourself, this elderly person has been worshipping a lot far longer than me. They have collected
so many more good deeds and achievements in the sight of Allah than I have. When you see the ignorant person, think to yourself, they have made a mistake and disobeyed because of their ignorance. But I have knowledge I have information they don't and yet I am still making mistakes and disobeying Allah.
So it's even worse upon me because I should know better. And when you see a knowledgeable person or a scholarly person, think to yourself how much knowledge they have gathered and collected that will raise the rink in the sight of Allah. And how little do I know
it's a recipe for walking through this world and not falling into a state of delusion not falling into the trap of mistake. Comedian Abby
mistakes Mr. kabiri in abbyy. Samuel on June, they said this is referring to their gatherings by night some or by nighttime under the moon. In those times people used to like having gatherings at night where they would
have long conversations and spend long nights.
Mr. Comedian Avi Samuel into June Allah subhanho wa Taala is describing those gatherings of this gathering at nighttime.
And what are those gatherings about?
June, which is the third and the two are related gatherings by night where there is ridicule, there is words of insult and cursing.
And in another pillar in another citation, the rejection of the origin and abstaining from worldly and Revelation. So it is late night gatherings. And there's a reason why we are taught in the bronco
Mishima Amish area sitting either Walker, we are taught to seek refuge from darkness when it envelops. Because if you notice just by Statistics, most of the bad things that happen. They happen at nighttime. Why? Because evil people want to get away with their wrongdoing.
And at nighttime people are more susceptible to falling into mistakes. So they say when you're staying up late and wasting that time with your own with words of uselessness.
That is something that is causing heedlessness forgetfulness about revelation. And it's amazing that this isn't sort of me known how to sort of tell him you know and begin those successful believers. What did they do when levena whom and he loved who he was
those that stayed away from useless and vain speech which just took away their time and their breaths. That's why a great scholar he said, I'll walk to he said, time is like a sharp sword. In my
work, either you cut it or cut with it, or it will cut you.
And it's amazing how our idioms and our words show a sense of heedlessness, the night is young. It might be but soon morning will come and we will be one day older
than June. abstaining and delaying and moving away from revelation of the greatest mistakes that we have fallen into
is depriving our souls from the nutrition of Vicar and the Quran.
Just like the human body is craving for good healthy food so it can build that immune system. Though the soul needs the kid and it needs for an of the worst mistakes we have done is we have deprived our souls from the nourishment of the cat and the colon. And that's why the very next verse Flm the bottle.
Allah says in the very next verse, couldn't they just have pondered and reflected over revelation? expose your hearts and your ears and your minds to the cup
Enter the words of Allah subhana wa tada to the Quran. by protecting ourselves from falling into these pitfalls and these traps, we will develop that spiritual immunity and we will meet Allah subhana wa tada in a much better condition with a heart that is clean and pure element Attila Have you ever been Selim, may Allah make us of those who meet Allah with a clean and pure hearts? automata Simona I still feel like it would echo Marisa in a Muslim minimalism infested feudal inner who will offer Rahim repent to Allah, for he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful

As mentioned that the universal message to all nations before us and including us of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to have Taqwa of him.
The universal message to all nations, to be successful and to be saved, is to have God consciousness and piety.
As to what follows. We have been discussing some of the reasons why the disbelievers at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
fell into a state of heedlessness, they became arrogant and diluted because of the blessings that they enjoyed, or something that made them special being around the Kaaba. They wasted a lot of time, especially the knights and they engaged in foul talk. They ridiculed the Quran and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they strayed away and abstained from interacting with revelation interacting with the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Speaking of the Quran, we have a wonderful program tonight with one of the local imams in Orange County she has a lot of thought will be presenting tonight at the ffm about the organic method for dealing with anxiety, considering what we
mentioned, that we are physical bodies, emotional beings, intelligent minds, and also a soul that needs to be nourished with the remembrance of Allah. All of these are connected giallo to Allah He will be highlighting one of the ways one of the connections between interacting with the Quran as well as maintaining good emotional health. Another important announcement to share with you all before we close today is that there will be a trip with the Imam of the masjid Sheikh Mohammed 50. This month in sha Allah to Allah, it'll be a wonderful opportunity to cleanse and to visit the house of Allah Subhana Allah and to engage in the Praiseworthy act of worship of the minor pilgrimage. But
there is an extra announcement to that, which is that there is an opportunity Many people ask I want to go make your own money but I can't afford it. And there is an opportunity that the masjid May Allah bless them has provided which is two seats in their mo package. That will be given as a reward that will be given for free and there will be a contest. To determine who will be eligible for that you will have to submit a writing piece you can get more information and so anyone who is seeking a spouse in the most ethical and appropriate ways can benefit from this event and the program which will be held here at the masjid on March 30. Again, visit the office and the table for more
information on all of these and other events held at the masjid for your benefit. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us of those who listen and follow the best of what they hear. We ask Allah to make us of those who recognize truth and follow it. May Allah make us of those who recognize falsehood and abstain from it. And Oh Allah, we asked you to save us from confusion because that will lead us astray. urbanite you know if you're doing your house and I hope it hasn't happened either. But now, Allah bless us with the best of this life and the best in the hereafter and save us from the torment of the Hellfire along must be modeled on our modern Muslim muslimeen Mohammed
