Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sahbihi normothermia humby son Elijah Medina Bye. We always praise Allah subhanho wa Taala. We thank him for everything that he has bestowed upon us. We send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of them. And may Allah bless every one of us as well. My brothers and sisters, whenever we have an important meeting, what happens is we make sure we take pride in our dress, we make sure that we are smelling good, we make sure that we are looking good. And then we arrive at our meeting depending on who exactly we are

00:00:54 --> 00:01:39

meeting in a very, very presentable way. Wouldn't you agree that the most important meeting ever is the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala the most important communication is that with Allah subhanho wa Taala Wouldn't it be wrong for us to come for Salah to fudger without having dressed appropriately? Wouldn't it be wrong for us to fulfill Salah even in our own homes on the masala that we have known as a Giada that we may have in the house without being dressed appropriately? Brothers and sisters, a duration in Sahih Muslim and soon and unnecessary by a bus of your lover and he says at the time of the machine just in the pre Islamic time. The women used to make power off of the

00:01:39 --> 00:02:13

Kaaba while they were naked. And the reason they did this, they just had a little piece of skin perhaps animal skin in the front and the back just to cover the basics. But they did it because they wanted to get there too as answered. So they thought if we remove our clothes, perhaps we will show that we are actually in desperate need of something. However that was abolished by the Koran in fact not only abolished, but it was considered something very very bad and to boo Allah subhanho wa Taala reviewed verse number 31.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:28

Yeah, Bonnie de feu de nada como de Colima s Gd workqueue shabu Allah to CFO in

00:02:30 --> 00:03:13

Missouri fy 18. Oh Children of Adam. Take pride in your dress, dress appropriately, adorn with your beauty when it comes to your visit of the house of Allah or the place of worship, the place where you are going to put your head on the ground for Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you want to engage in prayer, make sure you've taken some pride in your dress. And Allah says, eat and drink and do not be wasteful for Indeed Allah does not like those who are wasteful. My brothers and sisters a very important lesson to be learned. We come to the masjid. Let's make sure that we dress appropriately we look good, and at the same time we smell good, we are clean. We look presentable, voila here it

00:03:13 --> 00:03:20

is much more important than the meeting you may have with a prime minister or a president or a CEO of a top company.

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

Then we have

00:03:24 --> 00:04:07

the story that is made mention of interseeded poverty by Qatada. Rahim Allah, He says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was instructed at the very beginning to get up on Mount Safa and to call the people of Quraysh, the various clans, the leaders of the clans and the cronies and to address them from Mount Safa. So he got up to Mount Safa, he called them everybody came. The reason they all came is they knew him as a good man and honest man, the trustworthy the most, for example, honest, the one who was the best of the lot, the one who did not speak alive, the one who was really high in rank and so on. They knew him as a good man. When he gathered them. I have something very important

00:04:07 --> 00:04:49

to tell you, they all came. So then he gathered up on Mount Safa. And he asked him a question. He says, oh, people have courage. If I were to tell you that behind me on this side of the hill is an army that is ready to attack you. Would you believe what I have to say? They said yes, we've never known you to tell a lie. We would immediately believe he says so my people I am here warning you of a severe punishment, worship Allah and Allah alone, quit your idols and quit your bad ways and habits. Immediately they became angry, they became upset. I'm sure you heard of Abu lahab and what he said he said will be to you destruction be to you. Oh Muhammad, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant

00:04:49 --> 00:05:00

us protection. These are bad statements that were made mentioned of and repeated in the Quran for us to take lessons from and Allah subhanho wa Taala then makes money

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

One of the statements that the people of courage said, they said, This man is a madman. And this man is possessed Don't listen to him. Moments ago, he was the best of the lot. He was the top. He was the most trustworthy just because of one thing that did not suit them. One thing that was the honest, brutal truth, they did not want it immediately. They said he's a bad man. Let's ask ourselves, how many of us, we have friends, we have family members, we have people close to us. When they tell us one thing. That is really correct. Subhana Allah, we tend to hate them. We dislike them. I don't want the reason is, why are you telling me this? You're supposed to be my friend. I'm

00:05:38 --> 00:05:55

not supposed to be listening to this from you. When if you are a true friend, my brothers and sisters, if you're a faithful spouse, you will be honest, you will correct your spouse even if he or she happens to feel hurt about it. May Allah help us and grant us a lesson from this beautiful verse, verse number 184 sudo to

00:05:56 --> 00:06:45

our lamea de facto mabie sahibi Min Jin in Hawaii, Lana do ob Do they not ponder? Do they not think their companion is not a possessed person or a madman? Not at all. In fact, he is a plain warner. He's just come to on them. One of the one of the most powerful ways of understanding the truthfulness of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is he never ever called towards himself, not once. He always called towards Allah. If he was a madman, if he was, after position of power or anything else, he would have blown his own trumpet to say everyone worship Me, I am the big boss, I am the man I am the greatest I am this not once did he speak about himself, but rather he always said

00:06:45 --> 00:07:25

worship the one who made you worship Allah alone I am only a messenger I have come to convey the message and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us beautiful lesson. Then there is a story made mention of by a great professor. He is known as Mujahid Rahim Allah. And although some of the scholars of the scene have said that the Hadith or this narration may not be absolutely authentic, but it is interesting to make mention of it because of the lesson we want to draw from it. It is reported that Adam alayhis salam, and it is also in another narration just making mentioned generally of men that when he did not have a child initially, when his wife could not conceive every

00:07:25 --> 00:08:03

time she conceived and miscarried, conceived and miscarried, conceived and miscarried. This became hurtful. Ask those who don't have children. May Allah bless you with children. I mean, it's very hurtful. Once it hurts you a second miscarriage, it hurts you again. You try for a child as they say. And it just doesn't come five years if past 10 years if past 15 years have passed, sometimes by a miracle it comes 20 years later, I know of a case that did happen 18 years later, by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even beyond, never lose hope in the mercy of Allah remember this. But there is a powerful lesson. It is common that this would hurt us. We are human beings. We want

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

goodness, we want children. We don't realize children are from Allah

00:08:07 --> 00:08:11

subhanho wa Taala. When he knows it's not good for you, he won't give it to you.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:32

When he knows perhaps you might lose your child in a nasty accident at an early age and that might be very depressing for you. He says, I will do you a favor. I won't even give you the child in the first place and you'll be happy Subhan Allah that's a gift of Allah, your agenda and your Paradise is to be happy with the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this narration

00:08:33 --> 00:09:13

it says that they came a time when shavon got involved after two or three miscarriages. Shaytan says Look, if you involve me in this picture, then you will definitely not miscarry. So what was chiffons comment? He says, you name the child after me stuff Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. So according to the narration, and as I said, some of the scholars have said it's a slightly weak generation, but the truth is we do fall for these type of things. In desperation, when a person is desperate, they go to the sangomas, they go to the witch doctors, they go to the fortune tellers out of desperation, not realizing that Mohammed salatu salam says men are often aka Hainan

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


00:09:15 --> 00:09:51

AKA the FRB moans Allah Allah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, wherever it goes to a fortune teller, someone who claims to know the unseen and believes them. They have disbelieved in what Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam brought, be careful my brothers and sisters, no matter how pious and religious people who claim to know the unseen appear, they are wrong. They are making a very big mistake. It's impossible. It was only jabril alayhi salam who used to come with revelation of the unseen to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam by virtue of which he knew that much of the unseen Subhana Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam but for you and me and those around us know jabril alaihe salam comes it

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

is guesswork when someone tells you your sister in law your brother in law, your mother in law has done magic on you remember, they are absolutely innocent, my brothers and

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

It's no matter what type of science they want to show you, these people are innocent. It is us who are guilty, we are actually minimizing if not eradicating the chances of our entry into paradise, I'd rather base supper believing that it was a test from Allah than to accuse an innocent person because of someone who might have appeared to be religious, who might have told us a name of a person, when we know that jabril la Salam did not come to them. And we know that it's impossible for them to have known the unseen because Allah will who you the Knower of the unseen is only Allah. Is that you Angela, remember this, my brothers and sisters when shavon got involved, and he said, named

00:10:37 --> 00:10:40

the child after me, It is reported that then the child held

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

and the child was born.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:58

And it was a test from Allah. they repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala because obviously, it was something that was unacceptable. The repentance came immediately but the lesson is for us or listen to these verses 189 to 191.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:03

And I'd like to make mention of the last part of the verse Allah says, Phelim

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

masani Giada

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10


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

fatahna long one.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:53

You know when people want children, Allah says they call out to Allah they call out to Allah and they say Oh Allah, if you bless us with a beautiful child, we will be from amongst the truly thankful we will thank you. You know, we read a lot of Salah when we have problem we engage in 200 we cry, we give out sadaqa and charity, we become good people, pious people once what we want has come we forget everything. It's gone. Like the child is now born. We don't even know the first thing playing in the ears of the child music lover, instead of the Adhan, perhaps the first thing that that we buy for the child dirty toys, toys that are full of satanic lyrics and so on. May Allah

00:11:53 --> 00:12:31

subhanho wa Taala protect us it's becoming more and more difficult even to buy proper clothing for children today, May Allah help us dress our girls and boys in the best possible manner, so that we as parents are not held responsible on the Day of Judgment for something the child may have done in terms of an error. May Allah help us all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, then when we blessed them with a pious child, we found them associating partners with Allah, but Allah is above all of that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us a lesson brothers and sisters, when you don't have children, it is definitely permissible to do whatever you can in terms of medicine in terms of trying in terms

00:12:31 --> 00:13:08

of law, but do not cross the limits of Allah, do not do that, which is unacceptable. islamically don't go and do superstitious items. People tell you to cut three frogs and to roast their legs and to push them into the chimney and we end up doing it and then they say you you wait until it becomes it becomes cold. You gather a little bit of that smoke and you put it into your dress, voila, this is what they say. And you find foolish people who read five Salah a day they happen to be doing these things, believing that I might get a child No, Allah does not want you to have a child don't do Haram. My brothers and sisters continue making dua and ask Allah you may want to try like I said,

00:13:08 --> 00:13:48

according to medicine, and so on Alhamdulillah but don't do something Haram. The same applies when it comes to your job. The same applies when it comes to your marriage. Never ever go into that which is unacceptable. Continue making dua and continue trying in a positive way. Let's move on verse number 204 suatu rF FC robbery and do not be Hatem they make mention of a narration of Abu hurayrah Viola when he says the people used to speak during Salah I spoke of this a few days ago. We I said initially you were allowed to talk in Salah. You see when people were reading Sala one would be permitted to whisper to the other for some form of necessity and so on. Then it became prohibitive.

00:13:48 --> 00:14:13

But then a new problem arose What was it? When the Imam is reading the people are reading aloud after him so they are disturbing him? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to read Quran and they used to repeat the verse aloud after him. So it was creating some disturbance and Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses were either three alko Rufus Tammy Oh see tola Allah.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:43

When the Quran is being read, read, when the Quran is being recited. Then listen very carefully, remain silent, listen attentively, in order that you may achieve the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala you want Mercy of Allah, simple when the Quran is being read, all you need to do listen attentively, concentrate, try and concentrate on the meaning and you will achieve the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala then we move on to another surah so what will unfold?

00:14:45 --> 00:15:00

So what will unfurl Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of so many matters of war, and so many matters that occurred between the Muslim men and the people of Polish you and I know the people of courage drove the Muslims out of Mecca. They stole their property they killed quite a few of them.

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

They prepared armies in order to come and attack them in muck in Madina munawwara. Hence the Battle of better the Battle of the Battle of the trench. They all happened closer to Madina, munawwara May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand this history. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of something very interesting, and why he makes mention of it Bharani has made mention of it in his famous book of Hadith known as Al Kabir. And the narration is of Hakeem in his m. or the Allah minor. And most of the scholars of Tafseer have made mention of this narration. They say the Battle of butter started off with a duel. There were these sword fighters who fought and the Prophet

00:15:42 --> 00:16:26

sallallahu wasallam. When the war began, he took one handful of dusts, he read a DA and he threw it and a sound was heard from the skies. And this dust went dispersed into every I have every single one of the machinery keen on the other side, they all happen to be rubbing their eyes at exactly the same time. This was a miracle of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. It is reported that this happened more than once. It happened once before, at the time when he made the hegira when he walked out of his house according to annihilation, but here again the Battle of better when the war was about to begin, and he took this dust and Bismillah and it went into all the eyes they were all rubbing the

00:16:26 --> 00:16:45

eyes, if you are rubbing your eyes right now How would you know that the rest of the masjid is also having their eyes because you are busy? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand this miracle. So Allah is telling Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that you know when the day you through the time that you threw the dust, it was not you actually throwing but we are the ones who through

00:16:46 --> 00:16:50

Rama Rama, Rama tala da

00:16:51 --> 00:17:28

da da it is not you who through when you actually through the dust. It is Allah who through it so Han Allah, and this is why the Sahaba say we heard the sound from the skies. It was amazing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the beautiful touch of the miracles of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in our lives. There is no point whatsoever to keep on harping on the miracles when these miracles have not touched your heart. When they have not changed you they have not moved you What's the point of saying Mohammed salatu salam is the greatest of all messengers. When you don't even read your Salah. You don't even want to look like him. You don't even want to adopt what he has taught me

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us.

00:17:31 --> 00:18:09

Verse number five of the same surah that verse was verse number 17. I'm actually going back to verse number five, the seed of liberty and even be Hatem. They make mention of integration of valuable and Saudi Arabia long run as well as that of kidnap bus for their loved one. They say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard about the caravan of Abu sufian coming from a sham and coming through back to Mecca, Toluca, Rama close to Medina. So he decided to gather a few people. And he decided to tell them let's go this caravan of a few people. We will waylay them, and we will take the caravan because it belongs to us. How did it belong to him? The wealth that was being used by

00:18:09 --> 00:18:43

Abu sufian to do his business, and to take the caravans to go up to a sham was actually the usurped wealth of the Muslims who were driven out of Mecca. They will now in Medina, all the money and the wealth had been stolen, these people gathered the wealth and they now started doing business to improve the economy of Makkah. So it was only corrected, now you're hearing, they took my money, they went to a sham, they coming back with these containers, these containers belonged to me, I need to go out and collect them. Nothing wrong. So the ruling was passed that it's permissible and you go so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells his people, this is Abu sufian coming, let's go, let's go and

00:18:43 --> 00:18:48

get to all our wealth. So they decided to move 313 of them. They went

00:18:50 --> 00:19:21

and what happened? Something very, very amazing. Abu sufian got wind of this. And he moved he changed his course. And he went and he sent message to the people of Mecca and the people of Makkah gathered 1000 people and they decided to come and they marched to battle and the prophets of Allah Salaam heard about this, and so he tells his people look, we don't have much weaponry. We didn't come in order to fight a whole army. We only came to get a caravan but what is your people's plan? We are right here near But should we go to battle or should we go back to Medina.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:29

So they were still discussing and as they are talking, admit that they will so it says or messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:19:30 --> 00:19:59

we are not going to tell you what the people of Musa Moses May peace be upon him told him what did they say for the Torah buka Fatah Tila in hoonah for the people of Musa alayhis salam told Mu salesianum you and Europe the two of you go and fight we are sitting back here once you win and everything is okay. Call us we will come as long as you call us we will come so Allah subhanho wa Taala says the Sahaba

00:20:00 --> 00:20:41

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did not say that they said go with your up and we are with you. So hon Allah, we are with you. Nevermind we are coming. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says Kama Raja Boca Chica bill was in a very minimal meaning mini Nana carry on in that way, a lot drove the meaning out of the houses a lot to queue out of Medina, going towards Abu sufian not knowing that you are actually going to end up in butter and fight a huge army. But that was Alan's plan. Even though some of you may not have actually wanted to do that.

00:20:42 --> 00:21:22

Some of them had just gone, they do not want to fight. But at the end of the day, they went because it was Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and it was his encouragement. So this was beautiful. What happens my brothers and sisters in our lives, sometimes we plan something, we plan a small business deal. It turns out so good that a whole life long of sustenance has now opened, but our plan was small. That was our loss plan. And sometimes we plan something small and something huge happens in terms of loss. That was also a loss plan. So remember, this is all Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala worship Him. Life is a test one day for you and one day against you. It can never ever be that every day is

00:21:22 --> 00:21:29

a day of profit, one day profit one day loss you have to go through these types of tests. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us

00:21:31 --> 00:22:16

verse number nine. Now they had got to better and in better 1000 mushrikeen 313 muslimeen. Howdy Suna Timothy reported by Omar Katara, Allah Allah. He says on that day the prophet SAW Selim looked at the mushrikeen he saw 1000 he looked at the Muslim and he saw very few 313 and he started making dua to Allah. He says, Oh Allah, you promised me fulfill your promise or Allah, you promised me fulfill your promise. And he made so much that it is reported Abu Bakr Siddiq of Allah who saw him raise his hands. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam raised his hands and he raised his hands high. And he continued making Do you know what he said? Oh Allah, these are all of us. 313 If you want not to be

00:22:16 --> 00:22:53

worshipped again, we can all be destroyed. But yeah, Allah, you have promised me fulfill your promise. He knew it's impossible for us to actually be destroyed because the mission is only commencing. So what was the plan here? It was Allah subhanho wa Taala. His plan, he made so much of that the top of his cover, his shoulder cover had fallen down and Abu Bakr Siddiq of Allah who noticed that it didn't stop him. You know, today if a piece of your clothing falls in your making, you'll probably pick it up quickly put it back and carry on. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was so dedicated in his job, he didn't stop, he continued. Abubakar city, picks it up, and he put it on

00:22:53 --> 00:23:35

Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he says, Oh messenger, I am sure and convinced that Allah will give you what He has promised you. And at that moment, gibreel alayhis salam comes to him with the most powerful news of the day of butter. What was that news? You go to Bethel today, you will notice a mount with a totally different color of sand. While those of you who've been there, you'll notice the sand and the rocks are different. One area, totally different. It's more like white sand, very light in color. Listen to the verse Allah subhanho wa Taala says verse number nine of Swaziland fall is the study una baconfest Raja Bella come

00:23:37 --> 00:23:44

when you were calling out in desperation to Allah and Allah responded to you. With what?

00:23:45 --> 00:23:48

Annie mommy Dooku bl

00:23:51 --> 00:23:59

e kakimoto d that I am sending help to you. 1000 of my angels are coming to fight with you.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:38

And that mount is known as Jebel Mala. AKA to this day you go to better and you asked him where is Javelin melodica where is the mount where the angels came down, they will show you there it is what law he will stand because of the color of the Sandy. It's reality. Beautiful. My brothers and sisters Subhana Allah. So this is the help of Allah. The reason I make mention of this, my brothers and sisters, the help of Allah will come look they were faced with the enemy that crunch was about to happen. And Allah says yes, you help. So don't lose hope. Sometimes we feel it's the end of the road. We want to throw in the towel. Allah says no, you bear patients, you know, even the messengers

00:24:38 --> 00:24:47

of Allah subhanho wa Taala the best of creation. They were very patient, they bought a lot of patience. How much of patients are we bearing? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us help.

00:24:49 --> 00:25:00

Then sunan Maasai and the rock of Lima Hakeem hadith of Abdullah live with Allah. He says that Abu Jamal made the day out on the day of the East

00:25:00 --> 00:25:38

But he made the dua what was the DA, you know, they used to call out to Allah as well, the mushriks, they were polytheist, which means they associated partners with Allah, they worship their idols, but they also sometimes worshipped and lo, and it suited them when they when they had a huge problem. For example, when they were on the oceans, they knew that now my stones and my sticks in my idols are not going to help me. So they used to say, Allah, oh, Allah help us. So on this day of war, a Buddha has said, Oh, Allah grant victory to the one who is right. Grant victory to the one who is correct, because he was convinced he is right, Grant victory to the one who is the better of the

00:25:38 --> 00:26:07

two. That's what he's saying. Imagine what type of a beautiful, isn't it give victory to the one who's the better of the two, they accused Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam of breaking family relations. So he says, Oh Allah grant victory to the one who has maintained family ties and destroy the one who breaks the family ties. But they don't know the family ties were not broken. It was the co founder of Quraysh, who did not want to have anything to do with the Muslim in. So when the battle was over,

00:26:09 --> 00:26:22

and the and the kuffaar had lost a Buddha Hall was now gone. In fact, one narration makes mention of another bundle Harris being the one who made this drop. But we will stick to the common narration, which says it was Abu Jamal

00:26:24 --> 00:26:31

and Allah revealed vs verse number 1951. For Khadija cool

00:26:33 --> 00:27:10

if you are making graph of the victory of the one who's right, when victory came Subhana Allah now why don't you accept it? You see, we say Oh Allah grant victory to the one who is right. So Allah is saying to you making dua that Allah give victory to the one was right when he had the victory came, you guys lost? So the people who won according to your job, they are the ones who are right. Still they didn't except those who are dead already Abuja and the lights were gone. But those who knew about this, they also rejected it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May He grant us a deep understanding brothers and sisters. Sometimes you don't know you are wrong, and you are saying Allah

00:27:10 --> 00:27:46
