Dear brothers who wanna leave, please leave quietly.

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

If you're gonna leave,

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

please greet people outside, not in the Musallah

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

area. Jazakumullah khair.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

All praise is due to Allah.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

We praise Him, we seek His aid and

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

we ask for His forgiveness.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:56

We seek refuge and protection in Allah from

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

the evils of ourselves

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

and the evil consequences of our evil actions.

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

Whomsoever

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

Allah guides, none can lead astray and He

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

who Allah misguides

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

nor can guide.

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

And I testify that there is none worthy

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

of worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah

00:02:16 --> 00:02:19

alone and I testify that Muhammad sallallahu

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

alaihi

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

wa'alaihi wasallam is His servant

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23

and His messenger.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:25

O you who believe,

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

fear Allah as He should be feared and

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

die not

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

except in submission and surrender to your Lord.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

O mankind,

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

be dutiful to your Lord

00:02:35 --> 00:02:38

who created you from a single person and

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

from him he created his wife and from

00:02:40 --> 00:02:43

them both he created many men and women.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

And fear Allah through whom you demand your

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

mutual rights

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

and observe the rights of your kin. Surely

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

Allah is ever and all watcher over you.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

All you who believe, keep your duty to

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

Allah.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:58

Fear him and speak the truth. He will

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive

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

your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His

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

Messenger

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

has indeed attained a great achievement.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:08

The best words

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

are the divine words of Allah and the

00:03:10 --> 00:03:13

best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

alaihi wa sallam.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

And the worst things in the religion are

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

the newly invented matters, for all the newly

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

invented matters in religion

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

are innovation

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

and every innovation

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

is bid'a and misguidance.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

This is the blessed day from Allah subhanahu

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

wa ta'ala.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

Yawmulhajal

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

akbar.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

The great day,

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

the first day of Al Naha.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:44

The beautiful day of Al Eid

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

where the pilgrims,

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

Al Hijaj,

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

they have performed

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

the majority of the

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

rituals of Hajj.

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54

They have already

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

stood in Arafat,

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

the greatest day

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

upon which the sun rises,

00:04:00 --> 00:04:02

where Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala frees

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

people from the hellfire

00:04:05 --> 00:04:06

like no other day

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

and we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

make us from those who were accepted on

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

the day of Awa'afa. We ask Allah subhanahu

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

wa ta'ala to forgive our sins

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

and to fix our affairs

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

and to help us and enable us to

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

worship Him sincerely

00:04:21 --> 00:04:24

and live our lives in devotion to Him

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

alone.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

I want to share with you some advice

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

from the Quran today,

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

something that we can that something that we

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

all already know

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

but it is something that we can all

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

benefit from in our lives.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

We can benefit from

00:04:39 --> 00:04:42

this divine advice in our private life when

00:04:42 --> 00:04:43

we are by ourselves,

00:04:44 --> 00:04:46

in your inner thoughts,

00:04:47 --> 00:04:48

with your feelings,

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

with your intentions,

00:04:50 --> 00:04:51

your inner world.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

But you can also apply this advice, and

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

you should,

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

with your family, your spouse, your children, your

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

parents if they are alive,

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

and then with your Muslim brothers and sisters,

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

with your neighbors and with humanity

00:05:07 --> 00:05:08

in general.

00:05:09 --> 00:05:12

A divine advice that is powerful that we

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

have all memorized

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

but there

00:05:15 --> 00:05:18

are treasures of wisdom and practicality

00:05:19 --> 00:05:21

in these divine words that we want to

00:05:21 --> 00:05:24

uncover some of them today before we leave

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

bi idhnillahi ta'ala. So hopefully they would color

00:05:27 --> 00:05:30

our aid with a spirit of devotion and

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

love of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

And this is about Surat Al Fatiha that

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

we all know.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

And Allah calls it Al Fatiha because it's

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

the opening of the book, It is the

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

introduction

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

to the Quran.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47

It is called Fatiha Toolkitab.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

It opens up the Quran for you.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:54

And if someone is unable to connect to

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

Al Fatiha

00:05:55 --> 00:05:56

and understand it,

00:05:57 --> 00:06:00

the way to the Quran is closed for

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

them because al fatiha is what opens the

00:06:03 --> 00:06:05

doors and the gates of the Quran for

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

you.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

It is the first chapter,

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

it is the opening chapter,

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

and it is the essence of the Quran.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:16

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam called it

00:06:17 --> 00:06:17

umulkitab.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

It is the mother of the book because

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

it holds the essence

00:06:22 --> 00:06:25

and the prophet sallallahu, it holds the essence

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

of the Quran and the message

00:06:34 --> 00:06:37

fatiha, the Qur'an will always remain a challenge

00:06:37 --> 00:06:38

for us.

00:06:40 --> 00:06:42

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said in

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

the hadith,

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

That

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

That Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala did not reveal

00:06:58 --> 00:06:59

in

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

Azabur,

00:07:02 --> 00:07:04

and in the Torah,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

and in the gospels

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

nothing like surah al Fatiha.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

There's nothing like surah al Fatiha.

00:07:13 --> 00:07:15

And this is why on many occasions,

00:07:16 --> 00:07:16

many occasions

00:07:17 --> 00:07:20

in Madinah and even at times of travel,

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa said that, salam

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

would randomly meet one of his companions and

00:07:24 --> 00:07:27

he would say to him, Allahu allimuka

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

aava masuraatinfil

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

Quran.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

Shall I not teach you? Shall I not

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

tell you about the greatest,

00:07:34 --> 00:07:37

the most powerful surah in the Quran?

00:07:37 --> 00:07:40

And companions upon hearing something like this they

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

get very excited.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

Then the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam would

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

say to them,

00:07:55 --> 00:07:58

because Allah says in Surat Al Hijr describes

00:07:58 --> 00:08:00

the Quran, he says to the Prophet Sallallahu

00:08:00 --> 00:08:01

Alaihi wa sallam, We

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

have given you 7

00:08:06 --> 00:08:07

special

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

repeated ones,

00:08:09 --> 00:08:12

and the great and glorious Quran, the Prophet

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam says, this is al

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

fatihah.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:15

It is the 7

00:08:16 --> 00:08:17

verses that are repeated.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

The 7 verses that are profound in their

00:08:20 --> 00:08:23

description of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

and they are these 7 verses. This surah

00:08:26 --> 00:08:27

is the great Quran.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

It is the great Quran.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:33

So it is important for every Muslim

00:08:33 --> 00:08:36

since we recite Al Fatiha, at least every

00:08:36 --> 00:08:37

Muslim who should pray,

00:08:38 --> 00:08:39

at least

00:08:40 --> 00:08:43

recite Surah Al Fatiha 17 times because the

00:08:43 --> 00:08:46

obligatory prayers the obligatory rakas upon you are

00:08:46 --> 00:08:49

17 every day. Count them the 5 daily

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

prayers the rakas will be 17.

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

So every day you recite the surah

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

and you repeat it and you contemplate it

00:08:57 --> 00:09:00

and Allah called it As Salah. Allah referred

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

to Al Fatiha as As Salah.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:08

In the divine hadith, Allah says, Asamtus salatabeinuwabeinabdi.

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

I split the prayer between me

00:09:12 --> 00:09:13

and my servant.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:17

Meaning half is half is for Allah and

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

half is for the servant when you recite.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

When you say insala, Alhamdulillahi

00:09:33 --> 00:09:36

rabbilalamin Allah responds to you.

00:09:37 --> 00:09:39

Allah is Al Mujib, He responds.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:43

When you say it Allah answers back Allah

00:09:43 --> 00:09:45

says, Hamidani Abdi. My servant

00:09:45 --> 00:09:49

has praised me, he's thanked me, he's glorified

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

me.

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

When the servant says, Ar Rahman Ibrahim Allah

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

says, my servant

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

has glorified me further

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

and praised me more.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:14

The master, the king of the day of

00:10:14 --> 00:10:14

judgment

00:10:19 --> 00:10:20

My servant

00:10:20 --> 00:10:23

has celebrated my glory and my grandeur.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

Allah responds to you as in your salah

00:10:32 --> 00:10:33

immediately.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:35

Idaqalalabdiyaqanaabuduwayyaqanaastayimun

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

the servant says, iyaqanaabud.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:41

It is you that we worship

00:10:42 --> 00:10:44

and devote our lives to

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

and it's help your help that we seek.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:57

Allah says this this one is between me

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

and my servant

00:10:59 --> 00:11:02

and my servant will get what he asks

00:11:02 --> 00:11:03

for

00:11:04 --> 00:11:07

which is ikhdina sirataan mustaqim, the du'a that

00:11:07 --> 00:11:10

you make that you ask Allah for guidance.

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

The reason Allah wants us to recite the

00:11:14 --> 00:11:17

surah at least 17 times everyday.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:21

The reason Allah made it the opening of

00:11:21 --> 00:11:23

the book that holds the secret of the

00:11:23 --> 00:11:24

Quran,

00:11:24 --> 00:11:26

that if you engage with it correctly it

00:11:26 --> 00:11:29

opens the secrets of it unlocks the hidden

00:11:29 --> 00:11:31

secrets of the Quran for you.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

It's that it is a summary of Allah's

00:11:34 --> 00:11:37

message to humanity, to all of the prophets.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:40

Al Hasan al Basri Rahimahu ta'ala said

00:11:41 --> 00:11:41

that

00:11:42 --> 00:11:44

all of the revelations that were sent to

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

all of the prophets and the messengers

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

From the time of Nuh

00:11:49 --> 00:11:51

until prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam the

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

seal of all the messengers.

00:11:53 --> 00:11:56

The message of them was summarized

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

in the Quran.

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

In the Quran.

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

The gist of it is in the Quran,

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

then the whole of the Quran, the message

00:12:07 --> 00:12:08

of the Quran

00:12:09 --> 00:12:10

is summarized and condensed

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

in Al Mufasal.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:16

Al Mufasal is the last almost four jus

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

of the Quran from Surat Taft till Surat

00:12:18 --> 00:12:20

Al Nas at the end.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

Then the

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

jest and the condensed form of Al Mufasal,

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27

these last 4 jids of the Quran

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

are captured in Al Fatiha.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:33

Surat Al Fatiha.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:34

And then

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

the cream of Surat Al Fatiha,

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

the jest of Surat Al Fatiha

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

is found in one verse,

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

Iyakana abud

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46

wa Iyakana stayin.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

So all of the revelations, the wisdom that

00:12:51 --> 00:12:54

Allah sent to all previous messengers is found

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55

is is found in 1.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

So Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, he teaches us

00:13:01 --> 00:13:03

Surat Al Fathai. He wants us to live

00:13:03 --> 00:13:06

our lives in praise of Allah. Alhamd. And

00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

Alhamd is a very profound word we translate

00:13:08 --> 00:13:11

it as praise but praise doesn't even do

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

20% of the meaning of Alhamd.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

Alhamd is a recognition

00:13:16 --> 00:13:17

of Allah's perfection

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

that Allah is perfect,

00:13:21 --> 00:13:22

Allah is complete,

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

There's no defects with Allah.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:29

There's nothing wrong with Allah. Everything is perfect

00:13:29 --> 00:13:32

to the highest level of perfection ever. Allah

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

is perfect in his self.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:38

Allah is perfect in his names and attributes.

00:13:38 --> 00:13:39

All of them

00:13:40 --> 00:13:42

have and hold the utmost perfection

00:13:43 --> 00:13:44

and goodness.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:48

And that's what praise means.

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

And what that does and part of praise

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

is the love of Allah.

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

That you recognize

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

Allah's

00:13:56 --> 00:13:57

perfection,

00:13:57 --> 00:14:00

glory, and beauty, His divine beauty.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

You are captured by it, you are mesmerized

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

by it,

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

You are inspired

00:14:06 --> 00:14:07

by it

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

in the spirit of love of Allah. So

00:14:09 --> 00:14:12

your heart moves to Allah and nothing else.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

It attaches to no one but Allah.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

It seeks no one but your creator

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

and it knows that there is no safety,

00:14:22 --> 00:14:22

no salvation

00:14:23 --> 00:14:26

except with Allah and thus it loves none

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

but Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala. And with this

00:14:29 --> 00:14:30

your life becomes for Allah.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:33

And on top of this,

00:14:34 --> 00:14:38

you are you recognize the perfection of Allah's

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

actions, what Allah does.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:44

Allah decides and Allah creates and everything we

00:14:44 --> 00:14:47

see is the decision, the word of Allah,

00:14:47 --> 00:14:50

the qadr of Allah, and the creation of

00:14:50 --> 00:14:53

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala, and it comes from

00:14:53 --> 00:14:54

Allah's divine beauty.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

When you recognize this, you turn to Allah

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

in gratitude

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01

and in indebtedness

00:15:03 --> 00:15:04

and

00:15:04 --> 00:15:07

in thankfulness. He said to Allah, thank you

00:15:07 --> 00:15:08

for everything.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:11

Nothing comes from Allah but good. That's what

00:15:13 --> 00:15:16

Rabbil a'alameen, the Lord.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:18

And even Lord doesn't do the word rab

00:15:18 --> 00:15:21

justice because rab is the one who nurtures

00:15:21 --> 00:15:21

you,

00:15:22 --> 00:15:24

the one who takes care of you,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:27

the one who ensures your growth, your well-being

00:15:27 --> 00:15:29

gently, with gentleness,

00:15:30 --> 00:15:32

with care. That's rub.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:35

You know the Arabs also call the the

00:15:35 --> 00:15:35

father

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

the rub. When he is loving, compassionate

00:15:39 --> 00:15:42

and takes good care of his children, he

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

is called Rab Bulbayt.

00:15:45 --> 00:15:46

Why? Because he ensures

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

the good growth and nurture

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

of his family.

00:15:53 --> 00:15:53

He sacrifices

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

everything he has for his family.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:00

He protects his family. He provides for his

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

family.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

He loves his family.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:05

That's what Rab is.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:06

But with Allah,

00:16:07 --> 00:16:10

Rab takes on more dimensions with the divine,

00:16:10 --> 00:16:13

with Allah. And he's the owner, he owns

00:16:13 --> 00:16:13

us,

00:16:14 --> 00:16:16

He created us, we belong to Him, you

00:16:16 --> 00:16:19

don't even belong to yourself. Allah has more

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

right to you than you have to yourself.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

That's what this life is about. That's why

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

we live this life for Allah.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:29

We are here to we are entrusted to

00:16:29 --> 00:16:30

live this life for Allah.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:35

He's the Lord of everything.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:39

He's the merciful, He's full of mercy.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

Everything that comes from Allah has mercy.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

He's full of mercy and he's the giver

00:16:45 --> 00:16:48

of mercy. He showers his creation with mercy.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:51

Even the rebellious ones, even the disbelievers,

00:16:51 --> 00:16:52

even the evil ones,

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

Allah still show us them with mercy because

00:16:55 --> 00:16:56

he says,

00:17:00 --> 00:17:03

unless people take advantage of Allah's mercy and

00:17:03 --> 00:17:04

Allah's compassion

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

Allah says,

00:17:08 --> 00:17:10

The day of recompense,

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

the day when you will be held accountable,

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

Allah is the king of that day.

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

So unless you abuse Allah's mercy and think

00:17:18 --> 00:17:21

you can get away with whatever Allah Subhanahu

00:17:21 --> 00:17:23

Wa Ta'ala strikes fear in the hearts of

00:17:23 --> 00:17:25

the people that the day of judgment Allah

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

is the King and the Master and everyone

00:17:28 --> 00:17:31

will be brought before Allah for account and

00:17:31 --> 00:17:33

it's either a reward or a punishment and

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

you don't want to mess with Allah.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38

So that creates balance.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

And when you recognize this divine beauty,

00:17:42 --> 00:17:45

glory and might and power, your heart moves

00:17:45 --> 00:17:48

with love. And love is the essence of

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

worship.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

Love is the essence of worship. It's the

00:17:53 --> 00:17:56

heart of worship. That's why when you recognize

00:17:56 --> 00:17:59

these meanings, what do you say? Iya kana

00:17:59 --> 00:18:00

abut.

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

The response to these beautiful meanings,

00:18:03 --> 00:18:05

to these realizations

00:18:05 --> 00:18:08

is that, Oh Allah, only you we worship.

00:18:09 --> 00:18:10

You alone we worship.

00:18:12 --> 00:18:14

In the Arabic language, the original

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

order of the sentence would be,

00:18:18 --> 00:18:20

we worship you, but with this with this

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

kind of realization

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

you can only say you we worship.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

You put Allah first,

00:18:31 --> 00:18:32

and of yourself

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

you can't give Allah his rights

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

no matter how hard you try.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:40

You have your weaknesses, you have your defects,

00:18:40 --> 00:18:42

you have your flaws. We're all humans.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:45

So we know we can't make it to

00:18:45 --> 00:18:47

Allah. We can't give Allah his rights. So

00:18:47 --> 00:18:49

what do we do? We recognize we are

00:18:49 --> 00:18:50

helpless.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

Not only do we worship Allah but we

00:18:53 --> 00:18:55

ask him to help us worship him.

00:18:56 --> 00:18:56

And

00:18:57 --> 00:18:59

it's your help that we seek, your assistance

00:18:59 --> 00:19:02

that we seek. We'll do our best but

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

we can't do anything. What we do can't

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

amount to anything. It's only your help that

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

can get us there.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:10

And what is the help that we need

00:19:10 --> 00:19:11

from Allah? Ihdinasirataan

00:19:12 --> 00:19:14

mustaqim. Guide us to the straight path

00:19:15 --> 00:19:17

that takes to Jannah, that takes to Allah

00:19:17 --> 00:19:19

where you are with Allah forever.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

So Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in this most

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

important surah tells us what is the most

00:19:40 --> 00:19:43

important dua that we need to do.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:46

If you have one wish in this life,

00:19:46 --> 00:19:48

what would it be? What would you ask?

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

If Allah says there's one wish that you

00:19:50 --> 00:19:51

will be granted, what would that be?

00:19:53 --> 00:19:56

If you have figured this life out properly,

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

you have understood what existence, your existence means,

00:19:59 --> 00:20:01

the answer should be obvious.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:05

Because if you get guided to the straight

00:20:05 --> 00:20:07

path and on the straight path until

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

you reach Jannah,

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11

you have

00:20:11 --> 00:20:12

won everything.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:17

You have won everything. You haven't lost anything

00:20:17 --> 00:20:18

whatsoever.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:21

But if you get everything else

00:20:22 --> 00:20:24

but don't get guided to the straight path

00:20:24 --> 00:20:26

and on the straight path, you have lost

00:20:26 --> 00:20:27

everything.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

You have lost everything. So Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:20:31 --> 00:20:34

Ta'ala as he mentions his glory and his

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

beauty and his rights he guides us to

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

the most important thing that we should ask

00:20:38 --> 00:20:39

for. What is it?

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

We know that this life is about worshiping

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

Allah making it back to Him

00:20:44 --> 00:20:48

and the thing that we need most direly

00:20:49 --> 00:20:52

is Allah's help to guide us and to

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

keep us guided.

00:20:53 --> 00:20:55

That's why we ask Allah for that.

00:20:57 --> 00:20:59

And then we recognize this is the path

00:20:59 --> 00:21:01

of the ones that Allah blessed, the prophets,

00:21:01 --> 00:21:02

the messengers, the

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

companions of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam, the

00:21:05 --> 00:21:08

righteous people of all times that Allah has

00:21:08 --> 00:21:10

blessed. Look at how Allah says the ones

00:21:10 --> 00:21:12

that you have blessed.

00:21:12 --> 00:21:14

So the ones who are guided Allah bless

00:21:14 --> 00:21:16

them with guidance because that guidance doesn't come

00:21:16 --> 00:21:17

from ourselves.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

But we have to put ourselves at the

00:21:19 --> 00:21:22

service of Allah so he guides us.

00:21:22 --> 00:21:25

Not the ones who acted against guidance

00:21:26 --> 00:21:29

and went against the truth. Almagdoo bi alayhim.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:32

The ones whose Allah's anger falls upon. Walabbalin,

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

those who have turned away from guidance and

00:21:34 --> 00:21:35

acted without guidance.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

We ask Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to make

00:21:39 --> 00:21:42

us from Alladinah An Namallahu Wa Rahim

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

from the people of Jannah. So this is

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

the spirit with which we live our life.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

The love of Allah. That's why

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

we try our best to do the best

00:21:51 --> 00:21:53

in this life, to take care of our

00:21:53 --> 00:21:55

families, to be the best to our spouses

00:21:55 --> 00:21:58

and our children and our parents and our

00:21:58 --> 00:22:00

siblings and our brothers and sisters.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:03

And we don't forget that idna mal mumminoona

00:22:04 --> 00:22:06

ikhwa. The believers are brothers and this bond

00:22:06 --> 00:22:09

is stronger than any blood relationship.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:12

It's the bond of iman, Allah

00:22:12 --> 00:22:13

connects that bond.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:16

So our brothers and sisters no matter where

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

they are, what color they are, what background

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

they are, what language they are, they are

00:22:20 --> 00:22:22

beerer to us than anyone else among the

00:22:22 --> 00:22:23

creation

00:22:24 --> 00:22:25

because of the bond of faith.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:28

Even if there are distances

00:22:28 --> 00:22:30

between us, we love them for the sake

00:22:30 --> 00:22:32

of Allah. And this is why in this

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

Eid we should always remember our brothers and

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

sisters in Gaza, in Palestine,

00:22:37 --> 00:22:39

in Sudan, in different parts of the of

00:22:39 --> 00:22:41

where there are Muslims, there are Muslims all

00:22:41 --> 00:22:43

persecuted and there is no media attention on

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

them. Still in

00:22:46 --> 00:22:48

Muslims in China are still going through whatever

00:22:48 --> 00:22:49

they're going through.

00:22:50 --> 00:22:52

And in other parts of the world sometimes

00:22:52 --> 00:22:53

here and there in India,

00:22:55 --> 00:22:56

Every now and then it bursts

00:22:57 --> 00:22:59

and in different places.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:02

Keep your brothers and sisters in your dua.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

Keep them in your prayers and ask Allah

00:23:04 --> 00:23:06

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to bring them ease and

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

help them with whatever you can. Any way

00:23:08 --> 00:23:10

that you can help them, help them out

00:23:10 --> 00:23:12

for the sake of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:14

It's an an expression of faith and devotion

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. We ask Allah

00:23:16 --> 00:23:18

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to accept our deeds. May

00:23:18 --> 00:23:21

Allah bless your aid and accept your deeds

00:23:21 --> 00:23:22

and may Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala keep us

00:23:22 --> 00:23:24

guided and accept from all of us.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:34

Please make the greetings as fast as possible.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:35

So insha'Allah,

00:23:35 --> 00:23:37

the following,

00:23:37 --> 00:23:40

salah, insha'Allah, they have the time. So the

00:23:40 --> 00:23:41

the parking lot is free for them, and

00:23:41 --> 00:23:42

they can join.
