smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen ob Hina staying on a Sunday on a Sunday mala th Marine Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa bien momento b&b signing Eli ahmedinejad. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all. And may He bless every single one of us. Brothers and sisters, again, another beautiful evening from amongst the eaves of the month of Ramadan. We don't know how many we will be seeing still, it's important for us to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's important for us to soften our hearts it's important

00:00:45--> 00:01:28

for us to eradicate the evil qualities that we may have within our hearts. For indeed, these golden moments and opportunities are very rare. They are to be treasured by those who truly believe we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us that conviction. So that Eunice Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the very opening verses clarifies the statement, after what the kuffaar of Quraysh had been uttering against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is reported in the FC ribnica theory as well as the Sila tabari narration of Abdullah an ambassador of the Allah and he says that when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented his prophethood and he presented the message to the people of

00:01:28--> 00:02:20

polish. And the kuffar heard what he had to say. They started finding faults in what he came with, not only what he came with, but even himself, they started saying things and they knew that he was the best of the lot. Part of what they said was, it is strange for the Lord of the words, to decide to send to us a messenger, who is just one of us, who has come as a human being from amongst us, to us. If he wanted, he would have sent an angel from heaven. Why is it that he sent a human beings, we need to stop for a minute, and we need to go back to look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was no ordinary human being. He was the best of creation. He was the top of the lot. He was the

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

best of all those to check the earth, all those to exist higher than the status of the highest of angels, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so he's not just an ordinary human being. But yes, indeed he was human. At the same time he was the highest We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the understanding the kuffaar of Quraysh could not even acknowledge that much. They said he's one of us. He was a child who was an orphan. He was not that wealthy. He didn't really own much. He wasn't achieved in society, not realizing he was always honest, trustworthy, he was blemish free. Allah subhanho wa Taala help us lead lives that would inshallah be at least blemish free to a great

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

degree. We ask Allah to grant us forgiveness wherever we have faltered. So

00:03:09--> 00:03:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this verse number to sort of use a cannon in Sai Japan and our hyena

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

mean whom and

ob.

00:03:46--> 00:04:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, did they find it strange did the people were they amazed by the fact that we chose from amongst them, one to come to them to warn them. That is not strange for Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is up to Allah He decides he chooses whom He will send to remind you to remind me, sometimes a reminder comes to me from someone younger than me. Sometimes a reminder will come to you from a person who might not even be so steadfast on the path. But on that particular item, they may be right. For example, we might be doing something wrong in our lives. And here you have a drunkard coming and saying, Hey, brother, you are the one who is doing this and doing that. And

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

that's very, very bad. Well, I if we are to discount the statement based on the fact that he's a drunkard, yet he was right. We are losers. This is why we need to know in Islam, what is right is right on merits, not based on who brought it to you, no matter who brought it to you. If it's correct its effect. Even if your enemy comes and correct you trust me that is a correction. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the kuffaar of courage. They had a problem. They were proud they were arrogant. They were saying why isn't it from our family? Why isn't it from this guy?

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

Why didn't allow us in someone great. In fact, later on, Allah makes mention of how they started saying it should have been a powerful man. It should have been a big leader. It should have been someone else. One from the big, big cities. You know, there were two powerful cities nearby the city of Mecca and the city of Paris. So do you know what the Kufa said? Another problem? work on una una de la

00:05:22--> 00:06:06

la la mina Laconia teeny army they said why didn't Allah send this Quran down upon one men from the from the cities. A powerful person from amongst these who are in the two cities makan pif. Why did Allah have to choose such a man? So Allah replies, you know what Allah says? Whom yakushima naramata Arabic? Are they the ones who choose how to distribute the mercy of Allah. If Allah wants to give someone he will give, no matter what color they are, what tribe they belong to, where they come from, no matter what if he wants you will give, it's not up to you. Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and he opened our doors, you can have a child who might be from a family

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

from the poorest region of the globe. If Allah wants to give him status and rank and knowledge and power and wealth and anything else, it's up to Allah alone. Nobody has a choice in that regard. So Allah says, Are they the ones who are in charge of distributing the mercy of Allah,

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

Allah says, no person

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

shall feel higher in dunya, we are the ones who distributed their livelihood among them in this world.

00:06:35--> 00:07:00

And that is a test for them to see whom from amongst them marks the other and whom from amongst them is steadfast and so on. It's a last decision completely. This is why you find some people are extremely intelligent. When they were at school, they used to rattle all the A's. But when they grow older, a person who might have failed 10 times in primary school is now the multimillionaire. And the guy who had the top results is struggling to find a job.

00:07:01--> 00:07:40

May Allah grant His goodness, it shows, sometimes you have a person, he doesn't have qualifications, but he's wealthy, he's happy. That's the last choice. A lie is showing you it's got nothing to do with you very little to do with what you have to do to actually apply in terms of your effort. But it's got to do with us if we want we can give you you need to be happy with your portion. Now, before we go to the next verse, I want to stop and I want to press the red button. A lot of us when we are told what is right by the older man, we tend to want to find fault with the alum or with the scholar rather than change our lives. Because for us, we have a very commercialized way of looking

00:07:40--> 00:08:10

at things that if I am to change my whole life because of what the scholar is telling me, it's going to be very difficult but if I have to swipe at the scholar, it's going to be easy I'm going to get big support and we can silence him so if the the scholar comes up and speaks about interest speaks about halal and haram speaks about struggling the cause of Allah speaks about the dress code speaks about alcohol speaks about upright business dealings, those from amongst us who are wealthy, rather than say, Oh Allah, forgive me, strengthen me grant me strength. We say I'm going to fix this guy.

00:08:11--> 00:08:46

Why is he talking? I'm going to sort him out. We will go to the masjid go to the committee and tell them silence this men. We don't want to hear this lie that was a disease of the roofer of Croatia and it's been a disease ever since in the hearts of those who shaped on tries to entrap. Don't allow shaitan to trap you. You draw the cell handle, I'm weak. I've made a mistake. This man is like no matter how much I dislike the directness, but voila, he was the mercy of Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us sometimes we have problems in our homes, with our in laws with our spouses, we hate to be told that we are wrong. It's a fact we want to be told the other party is wrong. We hate to be

00:08:46--> 00:09:00

told correct yourself Watch out. But to be honest, let's not stoop as low as the co founder of Quraysh. To start finding finding fault in that which was a message for our own betterment. May Allah subhanho wa Taala correct us What a beautiful lesson.

00:09:02--> 00:09:45

Then we have verse number 15 of the same Surah Surah Yunus. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of something quite similar again, according to the Tafseer of Mujahid the machine of Makkah, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam read the verses of the Quran to them, they went to him and they told him you know, what, bring us a different for us. We've heard this what you're reading, we've heard it, we want something else where you can accommodate us as well. You know, we have a lot we have an OSA, we worship these idols, we try you know, to to maintain the DDD status quo. We try to protect what our forefathers used to believe. So we don't have a problem with the Quran. But we want you to add a

00:09:45--> 00:09:50

little bit in it. Come with something else where you can accommodate what we have to say.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

Whoa, Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. Sometimes you have a scholar, and he's speaking and people go to him and say

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

You know what I think maybe you shouldn't be saying this, perhaps you should do this. Perhaps you should. If we're trying to add and subtract from the dean, we are wrong.

00:10:07--> 00:10:45

If we are trying to advise and encourage and perhaps speak of the various methods of getting the message across Alhamdulillah, no problem. But you cannot change the dean and the religion to suit you. You have to change yourself to suit the dean. Let me give you one prime example. If you look at the heavenly scriptures, we believe in the Torah, the Bible, we believe in the previous scriptures, the Psalms of David May peace be upon him. We believe that these scriptures came from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we also believe that they were tampered with. The only scripture that we believe is not tampered with it is in its pristine form is the foreign. one simple reason and we are going to

00:10:45--> 00:11:22

draw a lesson from these two verses is when it comes to the Quran, we were taught all mankind, instead of adjusting the word of Allah to suit you adjust yourself to understand the word of Allah, what the previous nations did, they adjusted the word of Allah for them to understand. So they lost the original because they interpretations they drowned in them. What we are taught to do is adjust yourself so you can understand the word of Allah learn the Arabic language so that you can understand the word of Allah and if you do not know it, then the bare minimum is whenever the Quran is being written, make sure the Arabic is on one side because that is the word of Allah as for the

00:11:22--> 00:12:02

rest of the languages, it is an attempt of my man to try and explain to you what he believes is the closest to that which refers to the meaning of what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed. That's what a translation is. It's not the word of Allah. It's a translation. The word of Allah is the Arabic language. So why I've said this is because whenever it comes to religious rulings, whenever it comes to the deen, remember it cannot be changed. No matter how the world changes, the word of Allah will not be changed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand and maybe help us adjust to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala rather than falling prey just like shavon in trap those

00:12:02--> 00:12:15

before us where they adjusted the word in order to suit them wherever they wanted to do that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says verse number 15. So let us worry that totleigh

00:12:16--> 00:12:24

tuna Bina to Paula Nadine, Allah, una Nico Anna egb.

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

Cooney,

00:12:34--> 00:13:17

Paul NFC, when the verses of the Quran were recited to them, those who did not look forward to the last day to the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. They said to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam come with another plan or change it, change it to accommodate as Allah says, tell them, it is not up to me to come with changes in the Quran from myself. None of these verses are from me, they are in fact from Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah grant us the understanding the next Surah Surah Hood, where Allah subhanho wa Taala has made mention of so many interesting and important points, we will actually speak of integration mentioned in the tabari by Abdullah Abdullah dead or the Allahu Allah.

00:13:18--> 00:14:01

He speaks about how there were people who used to be hypocritical, passing bad comments against Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in his absence. They used to say a lot of bad things. Now, pause for a moment, if you have someone talking bad about you a lot. And they speak really bad behind your back. When they come in your presence. How would they be? They would try and duck and dive that's the word we use, isn't it? Because they don't want to see your face. They have this guilty conscience because they know they've been talking bad about you. The fact that they speak bad about you, they feel guilty in themselves that I don't want to see this person. How am I going to face them? They cannot

00:14:01--> 00:14:33

look you in the eye because they know they are guilty. Imagine they did that to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they spoke against him behind his back. And when they used to pass him, they used to cover themselves they used to turn their chest they used to quietly go away. You know they used to duck and dive literally these were hypocrites. Those who are true believers. They loved looking at Mohammed Salah Salem, they would go they would grieve they would spend time they would learn they would be corrected they would listen to Revelation they would pass the message. Let us be genuine my brothers and sisters Let's be genuine to one another when I see you. I want to look at you I want to

00:14:33--> 00:14:51

greet you I want to smile at you. I want to be able to tell you that I love you for the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't want to have a grudge and the gripe in my heart where there is hypocrisy. I don't like you but I'm smiling at you saying Salaam Alaikum Have you seen that? They call it a plastic smile? Mashallah, bro smile from ear to ear.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

My brother and he hates your guts. May Allah forgive us. Is that a Muslim, but this is what we're doing today.

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

This is what we do we have no shame whatsoever sought your matters out. I'd rather tell you a Somali can my brother look, we have something to sort out here Can we speak so Pamela will lie here it's better to be genuine and have an expression that is Samba on your face than to have hypocrisy with an expression that seems to be eclipsing everything that is under discussion. Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so they used to turn away their chests hiding from Mohammed Salah Salam and Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling them that when you cover yourselves with your clothes in the night as well, Allah knows what is inside what you are covering what you

00:15:41--> 00:16:17

are hiding. Allah subhanaw taala knows absolutely everything. So this verse, verse number five of solitude there are several generations that have been made mention of regarding some of the benefits of the surah some of the reasons of revelation as well as a few of the stories surrounding the sewer. But I've chosen a specific one and I've made mention of it is intersil tabari and the reason is the lesson is great when they used to pass Mohammed Salah Salaam they used to duck and dive and Allah is telling them Allah in yes known as odo only yes esta fomin Allah hain is una de

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

la Mama,

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

Mama your Nino

00:16:24--> 00:16:41

behold, they used to turn away their chests to hide from him. Allah says they need to know, unquestionably, that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what they hide and what they disclose even at the darkest times of the night when they are covering themselves with their own clothing.

00:16:42--> 00:17:10

The lesson? The lesson is that nobody can hide from Allah. You can hide from people you can cheat someone you cannot cheat Allah. Allah knows hypocrisy. Allah knows the condition of your heart. So try and strengthen yourself. Try and make yourself a person who What do you see is what you get and hamdulillah May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and may we be genuine people maybe as an Ummah, learn to love one another for the sake of the fact that we share now ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu taala

00:17:12--> 00:17:56

then there is a very interesting narration which affects every one of us. We are human beings, people sin, and when they sin, they say I'm only a human. Have you heard that before? They say I'm only human. I'm not an angel. I'm sinful. My brothers and sisters. We are sinful. Yes, good. No Bernina dhamaka every son of Adam sins, every human being sins, but what we need to know Do not just defy the sin by saying I'm human. It's okay. It's not okay. You are human. Yes, you may falter. But go back to Allah. So Allah says, I have a plan in place. Listen to Allah plan. It is so merciful, so beautiful, so amazing. It shows how loving Allah is. Allah says whenever you've made mistakes, when

00:17:56--> 00:18:35

you do a good deed after that mistake, the mistake gets wiped out without you even realizing at the Seattle Hudson at the tempura. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us follow up your bad deeds with lots of good deeds and the bad deeds will be wiped out. Here we are talking of minuses because there are major sins. A major sin requires specific repentance. A person who's committed adultery a person who's consumed alcohol, a person who's done something really nasty and bad. The person who's a for example, skipped the Salah May Allah never ever let that happen to us, but that would require specific repentance. You cannot just say okay, we were taught that I can just

00:18:35--> 00:19:17

now stop being good and I don't I can forget about the past. You can forget about the minor sins but the major ones No, no, you need to repent and then you can ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to forgive you to help you not to repeat them then you can be inshallah calm that Allah's mercy will engulf you by His goodness. So when a person commits a sin they would continue like for example, the Hadith says if you read Salatu Juma properly correctly, and you read the next Juma in between you've read all your Salah, but you make sure you've read the Juma Allah subhanho wa Taala will wipe out all the minuses between the two jamaats Did you know that the same applies to Amara, you make an

00:19:17--> 00:19:47

Amara, you make another hombre Allah wipes the minuses even those you don't know about. Do you know we live in an environment that sometimes walking on the street you don't know you're sitting you look left there's a sin you look right This isn't you thinking it's sinful. You're looking at your phone, it's a sin. You look at the billboard, it's a sin. Sometimes we've we live in a society today where it's difficult, it's really hard. And Allah knows this and Allah knows it's not your intention. Nobody goes and looks at a billboard and sits there admiring the woman on the Billboard.

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

That's just a tire that they sell in perhaps Dunlop or something else. And Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

So my brothers and sisters, these types of sins they are forgiven. Next

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

A lot that you read what's happened between the two is wiped out by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, there is integration with the finale by evening masala and, and this narration has been mentioned by many different Sahaba in fact in Sudan the tyranny they have a few different rewires there is a way of abou mama why of Medina javelina bus barreda Jamia so many integrations So, it is absolutely authentic, they say there was a man and he happened to touch a woman. He kissed him.

00:20:31--> 00:21:05

And he happened to without having got to adultery itself, but he regretted it. You know, he met her something happened, he touched her he kissed her, and he regretted it badly but he did not commit the act itself. And so he came to Mohammed Salah Salah, and he said, Oh messenger, I have committed a sin. This is what I did. And he explained it according to the duration of Suzanna t MIDI Amr Bill saatavilla han was there and he said, Hey, Allah covered you. Why are you exposing yourself? So Panama, you learn a lot from the statement of

00:21:06--> 00:21:42

Allah covers us, my brothers and sisters in order that we be forgiven, we go and repent to Allah, we don't need to confess we are not people who belong to a faith whereby you need to go and confess your sins to a person who is even more sinful than you are. But you don't know. We don't belong to faiths, where you need to go to another human being just because he has a beard and he stands in the front and you need to tell him whatever you've done in terms of sin, who is he with us? We are Muslim in your sin is your secret between you and Allah, you cry in the corners of the night and you ask Allah for forgiveness, and he wipes it out completely. It is never to be thought about again.

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

Don't even doubt the fact that you've been forgiven. Once you've asked us forgiveness. One of shaytans traps my brothers and sisters is to make you think that you're not forgiving. After you've asked the last forgiveness. That's an insult to Allah. When Allah says in Allah Hi, I'm Donna by Jamia Indeed, Allah will forgive every single son of yours, then shaitaan comes it's a no no, no, not you. This was a little bit too far. It's not too far for Allah. you repented. It's over. You start a new leaf today here and now. That's it. I've got a new life. But the problem with us we say, Well, I'm going to repent I'm still okay. When your knees start aching you say I'm still okay. When

00:22:20--> 00:22:58

you block 50 I'm still okay. And then you block 60 do you think No, I still I think I've got a few more years I'll be paying 6563 gone Mallanna do that to us. Now lawmakers from among those who can repent even when we are young, young, healthy, bubbling with your bursting energy and you say Allah forgive me, let me use my energy in the right direction. Let me use it for Salah for Sokka for various good things. This is the way forward my brothers and sisters. So this man Omar will support rhodiola and who tells him Allah covered you why you want to expose yourself. Now obviously he heard this the prophet SAW Salem heard it everyone heard it. Nabi sallallahu Sallam was quiet. He didn't

00:22:58--> 00:23:14

say anything. The men came, he didn't commit adultery, but he committed everything that led to adultery. And he repented he it happened once and he was very, very sad. And he wanted forgiveness. And he's, he's coming to say cleanse me Do whatever you have to. So a little bit later

00:23:15--> 00:23:20

a verse was revealed and the Rasul Allah wa Salaam read this verse number 114 of Seurat hoods,

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

opinion sala de la

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

mina nail in Asana, t v Venus

00:23:34--> 00:24:19

Danica de Cali, Katie giti. establish your prayer at the two ends of the day and that nightfall, fulfill your prayer for the sake of Allah, all your prayers, the prayers in the morning the prayers in the evening, the prayers in the middle of the day, the prayers at all the times that which needs to be established, and even that which is voluntary, over and above that which is compulsory. establish your prayers at the two ends of the day and at nightfall and you should know that indeed, your good deeds will wipe out your sins automatically. So hon Allah Subhana Allah amazing, your good deeds, wipe out your sins. And Allah says Delica HCA that is a reminder for those who want to be

00:24:19--> 00:24:41

reminded. You want to be reminded, well tell yourself I keep on doing good deeds. And this is why brothers and sisters, your charities, your good deeds, your Vicar, your remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala your recitation of the Quran the softening of your heart, the tears that roll down your eyes, do you know how powerful they are? If you cry for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala a warm tear.

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

That tear will be witness on the Day of Judgment such that the Hadith says a person who cried solely for the sake of Allah will be called out to be from amongst the seven categories of people who will be granted VIP status on the Day of Judgment, a special shaded area for them that no one else will have.

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

Because you cried for Allah, my brothers and sisters, Allah is loving Allah is merciful. Allah knows. Allah knows the pressure of society environment, and Allah knows the community you're living in and he knows your struggle. But that does not mean you need to say, we just heard today Allah knows my struggle I can send you knows that you know i That's all it is. That's not how we should be looking at life. Live should be looked at more seriously but where you faltered where human nature has made you fall, never lose hope in the mercy of Allah beautiful versus now we have the lovely surah of the Quran. If I were to ask a lot of you, what's your favorite story in the Quran? What

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

would you say?

00:25:39--> 00:26:16

So the use of see we've heard that Mashallah surah Yusuf, it's a surah the Prophet Joseph May peace be upon him. His story is mentioned in the most beautiful way from the beginning of the surah. right up to the end of the surah. Top of the story to the end of the story in order. It's one of the only stories in the Quran that that happens with. If you look at the story of Musa alayhis salam, O Allah salam, the others, it's all scattered in the Quran, use of La Salaam concentrate in one place. Here it is you want to hear start off. So how did it come about? Don't you want to know? How did Allah decide? Okay, I want to review this. It's the decision of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is reported,

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

and this is a hadith made mention of mustard rock of Solomon Hakim hadith of Sadiq, Naboo, apostle of the law and he says at the beginning the prophets of Salaam was reading the Quran. And after some time, the people said
