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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah, he was happy he woman, woman he did a Buddha. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless them all and bless every single one of us and grant us goodness and ease. May Allah forgive us on this beautiful Eve, within the month of Ramadan, my brothers and sisters 14 134 years back this particular night, the Battle of bedroom took place the 17th of Ramadan. It's important for us to

00:00:50--> 00:01:37

draw lesson from this, for us to understand that against all odds Allah subhanho wa Taala granted those who had solid belief, victory, had it not been for that we would not have been seated here today. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless all those who have struggled and strove from the very beginning through the generations, those we know those whom we don't know, in such a way that today the beautiful Deen and religion has come to us and we are seated here, miles away from muckety muck Obama still trying our best to follow in the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam May we to be from amongst those who learn, put into practice and pass the torch on my brothers and sisters

00:01:37--> 00:02:21

It is not good enough for us to dilly dally for us to think for a moment that we are fine if we will not to learn the deen and not to pass it on. Well, law it is our duty, pass it on to your children, pass it on to whomsoever you can. And the way to do that primarily is to learn it to be serious about it, to put it into practice and to understand that ultimately, our aim is genuine Allah subhanho wa Taala grant this gentleman yesterday I ended off by speaking about a certain question and the question was, why is it that when it comes to the stories of all the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala with these verses revealed in Mecca, Tomoko Rama, like I said, if you hear the

00:02:21--> 00:03:03

name of an abbey of a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a surah, you can close your eyes and say that this surah was revealed in Mecca Subhan Allah, the chances are, you will most likely be correct in all cases, Allah subhanho wa Taala helpers. So why is it that these stories came about in muckety muck arama in Madina, munawwara they were Jewish people, people of the book, those who knew the stories of the past, in muckety, muck Obama, they were not there. They did not know the stories of the past, there was no chance of anyone saying Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came, and he heard the stories from those people and he repeated them. No, in fact, they came in the purest of accuracy, in

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

the highest level of accuracy, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited the verses. And the reason why you find a lot of the times they were verses that came clustered together, such as surah, Yusuf and various other stories of the NBA Allahumma salatu salam, the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:23--> 00:04:04

was because it was to draw a lesson for those who were living from those who had lived before. If I want a lesson right now, and I want to know how best I should be doing things, I need to learn the easy way what is the easy way, look at those who did it in the past, see how they ended up and inshallah you will be able to have an idea where exactly you will end up if you do the same. So you may know how to modify how to change what to do what not to do. When it comes to the examples of you and I when we are parents we like to tell our children what to do. We want them to learn from our mistakes. Sadly, today's children want to make their own mistakes. We know that today's children

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

want to make their own mistakes. Still, it is a way of learning. But when it comes to the deen you only have one chance which means you're only going to live once and you will meet Allah subhanho wa Taala after that life, and you need to make sure that you have eradicated the risks involved when it comes to worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala you worship him and him alone and you follow the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So in Surah Yusuf after the beautiful story, verse number 111 of surah Yusuf Allah subhanho wa Taala says what he expects from us when it comes to these stories nakoda canovee kasasa him a Bella Tony own in

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

Makkah Howdy.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

Dada. Amazing Allah says indeed. In these stories there are lessons for those with sound intellect if you are sharp and intense.

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Allegiant you will want to learn from the stories of those before. If, for example, firewood with a little bit of fuel, and some matches happened to create a huge Inferno 100 years ago. Do you think it's not going to create the inferno today? What a fool. We need to know that those three do not really go together without combustion. But that is a lesson we learned because we watched we saw we know what has happened. And therefore we take heed. The same applies if she and sin and transgression resulted in the punishment of Allah in the past, what makes us think that it's not going to come to us? May Allah subhanho wa Taala purify us, may he make us from those who learn the

00:05:45--> 00:06:26

lesson. powerful, powerful words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says these are not tales that are created. It's not just a story that you should be reading at bedtime. More than the story is the lesson. Yes, it will be a beautiful story to relate to your children. But remember, even from the story of use of La salon, there are 1000s of lessons that we would be extracting and learning May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and bless us all. We move on to the next Surah Surah two rod named after the thunder. We need to know my brothers and sisters, that in this life, the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we have around us, they are all part and parcel of the army of Allah

00:06:26--> 00:06:59

subhanho wa Taala The wind is part of the army of Allah, the rain, the mountains, the earth, anything and everything. Everything obeys the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is only mankind and jinn can we find that they don't want to obey the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala imagine the sun obeys the instruction of Allah, such that we can tell you per nanosecond exactly when it's going to sit and when it's going to rise. And this has been happening since time began. Not once did the sun say today I think I'm going to sleep for Salatin

00:07:02--> 00:07:26

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us but man who is so sophisticated, we tend to find ourselves dilly dallying. When it comes to the crescent, we have the same when it comes to the other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala we watch them we are in all really they should be showing us the grant gear of the Creator Himself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand. So sometimes Allah uses these

00:07:27--> 00:08:09

in order to inflict some punishment upon people. But sometimes the same thing may be a means of someone's entry into gender and another person's entry into hellfire. Let me give you an example. We had a tsunami sometime back in Far East Asia, we had landslides we had volcanoes we've heard of earthquakes, we've heard of so much happening rattling the earth haven't we? from among those who perished. They were those who perished, while transgressive while perhaps earning the Wrath of Allah while involved in sin. For them, it is between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Perhaps it was a punishment for them. But what about those who died in the condition of sujood and prayer, those who

00:08:09--> 00:08:47

died while while reciting the Quran, while praising Allah while in the obedience of Allah, those who are really good people who also passed away or who also perished in that, for them, it was a means of martyrdom, they entered paradise, but it was the same occurrence. Let's understand this. Then there are some who did not die. But after the incident, they turned very far from Allah subhanho wa Taala. They actually became people who became angry with Allah, they turned away from the dean, they turned away from Allah for them to it was a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because the condition of the heart is what will determine whether it was a punishment or actually a means of

00:08:47--> 00:08:57

peace and comfort and the gift of Allah. There are some who used to transgress, they used to sin against Allah when the calamity struck.

00:08:58--> 00:09:38

They survived, but they became better people. Wasn't that the best gift they could have had. They became close to Allah, they started softening when it came to their hearts. They became people who love the last panel which Allah they didn't miss one Salah after that, for them, definitely It was a means a real means of closeness achieving closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let's never use a blanket statement to say this was the punishment. Who are you? Did Allah inform you that this is my punishment? No, not at all. It is punishment for some and it is a mercy for some. Let's hope the date strikes us it is never a means of punishment. In fact, let's make it does not strike us. I

00:09:38--> 00:09:38

mean,

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

so, verse number 13 of Serato. Right? There is a narration that is made mentioned of in most of the books of the scene of a man some of the narrations make mention of a name, we won't say a name, but at the same time, they say there was someone who came in debated and argued with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he said some nasty things and as he was debating

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

He left and after a while, the Thunderbolt came and struck him and he was gone and perished. It's possible that Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the thunder and the lightning in order to strike people as well whom he wants to punish. That is also possible. And this is why Allah makes mention of how the thunder is actually declaring the praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala while you will be holding on to be handy

00:10:28--> 00:10:36

in key vetting, and indeed the thunder declares the praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the angels in the

00:10:37--> 00:11:05

remember remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala out of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us such fear of his that makes us love him and such hope in Him that makes us obey His instruction. I mean, remember these creatures of Allah, we see them around us, we see the atmosphere, these are worshipers of Allah, they worship Allah, it's just that we don't realize recognize or hear or understand. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're

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

in in use of beef will be hemmed in what can let

00:11:12--> 00:11:41

us be how home indeed there is nothing at all in the creation of Allah except that he declares the praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is only that you do not comprehend the way it is praising Allah subhanho wa Taala the trees and the stones, the oceans and the skies, the moons and the stuff, whatever else it is, praises Allah What about you? Amen? How often do you praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, May Allah forgive us now lots of hammerheart Allah grant a string, so Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:11:42--> 00:11:47

while you see no sahuarita you see behind me as

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

well, hoo mujer de una fini.

00:11:53--> 00:12:22

It is Allah who sends down the Thunderbolt in order for it to strike whomsoever Allah wishes, while they are debating and arguing regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala. So although it may have been reviewed for a specific person, but the lesson is, it is a general lesson for us all, that perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala may use any one of his army in order to strike whomsoever He wishes to strike, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, forgive us,

00:12:24--> 00:13:05

then there is a duration of a bus or the Allahu anhu intersil authority, which makes mention of how the kuffaar have courage, the disbelief is of the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they asked him for some absurd things, they told him, if you want us to believe that what you are reciting is correct, and it is powerful, then we want you to bring the soles of our forefathers for us to be able to communicate with our forefathers, we want to talk to them bring to us, our forefathers, and we want you to do something else. You see the mountains of Mecca, there are so many we want you to remove them, move them, space them out, create a little bit of flat land, so that we

00:13:05--> 00:13:40

can cultivate here. That's what we want you to do. If you do that, we will believe the Quran that you have come with is the truth. And what else we want. We want you to divide this land by means of the wind or however you'd like to do it. But we want you to divide it miraculously similar to Sulayman, as you have said to a man may peace be upon him used to do that. So they said we want you to do this, then we will believe this recitation is actually the powerful recitation it's the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah responds subhanho wa Taala verse number 31 sudo to read, the verses were reviewed, while

00:13:44--> 00:13:49

being a banjo player to be loud. Oh, cool. Nema been

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

in a mood, Jamie.

00:13:55--> 00:14:21

Had there been any recitation that would have been able to move the mountains or that would have been able to separate the land or to bring forth the dead in order for them to be spoken to? It would have been this go on, but the instruction is for Allah. He chooses what he wants to do. It's up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters, what is the point of seeing something and then saying, okay, I believe that is not called belief in the unseen

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

to believe in the unseen when someone tells you, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam brought the Quran, this is the Quran, it's the word of Allah. And I say, to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Mohammed Abu ora sudo I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed the final messenger of Allah and bearing witness regarding the unseen that is called the man that is called faith and belief and conviction. But if you were to see something and then come to believe it only after you'd seen it, your test is actually passed. If Allah once

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

He can show us all the signs and then it will be too late. This is why Allah says, We're not going to give you those signs we know it's better for you to believe without us giving you exactly what you want. Because as we mentioned in the past, had these signs come about Allah would not have given them respect Allah would have destroyed them completely and immediately. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and May He grant us firm belief and conviction. My brothers and sisters, when we go to Makkah Tomoko Lama, when we are told that jabril la Salam was here, don't we have this firm conviction? Indeed, he was there that his belief in Allah and His messengers and the NBA and all the

00:15:39--> 00:15:46

angels and so on May Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us all and grant us Jenna in return. May He grant this forgiveness as well. I mean,

00:15:47--> 00:16:27

then they made mention of something else they wanted to pick on Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just because they did not want to listen to the message. So according to ignore behind him, he says, and this is the CEO of Mujahid. He says Porush, they accused Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saying, if you were really a prophet, that would have been your full time job. You wouldn't have had time to marry, to have children to spend time doing this and doing that. Why is it that we find you marrying women for example, he was married to Khadija been to Hawaii rhodiola at the time, and why is it that you have children and you are occupied with them and so on. You should be full time dedicated. This

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

is your job, nothing else.

00:16:30--> 00:16:48

Isn't it a familiar statement? Sometimes we see a llama driving a beautiful vehicle for us. Hey, he's supposed to be an Imam in the masjid. Supposed to be driving a Corolla? Allah Akbar. Allah forgive us. Today they drive s classes as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us.

00:16:50--> 00:17:08

So Han Allah, it doesn't mean someone called you towards goodness, they are pious, they are good. So they are not allowed to have family and they are not allowed to have money and wealth. They're not allowed to own this and that no, you need to understand it's Allah. Allah is virtue people are human beings for as long as he didn't pinch your money. What are you worried about?

00:17:09--> 00:17:29

Allah, Allah Allah forgive us. This was the disease of the people from the very beginning. When they see someone who is trying to remind them of Allah they say this person should be divorced from the world. That's wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May He grant a sustenance that will be inshallah a means of our entry regenda amin,

00:17:31--> 00:17:41

Masha Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala responds with number 38 of sudo to run, wala cada una Kobani Khawaja on Allah whom

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

Makkah Malema Sunni, tabea yet in the evening,

00:17:50--> 00:18:28

Allah says and we have sent messages before you O Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they've had family, they've had offspring, they've had descendants. It's not just you, they up they have picked on those before you as well. So panela look at the others they were messengers. So this is actually comforting Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, it is comforting to know that the other messengers also had children. They also had family members. It's not just me, so Han Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, it is not up to a messenger to come with signs on his own but these signs are given from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala help us save the deen and at the same time earn our

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

dunya in a way that we can have the best of both, I mean,

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

then we have sudo to Egypt, the next surah

00:18:35--> 00:19:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala if we take a look at the foreign each time he speaks of the punishment, guess what he does? He knows that people might become a little bit despondent were you hearing of the rough you hearing of punishment you hearing of Jana, you hearing of the burning blaze you hearing of how people will be cast into hellfire. And sometimes some people start losing hope. And they say oh no, you know, if this is the case, I'm probably going to be burning in Ghana forever. And Allah knows that people think this way. So there is always a balance in the Quran. Immediately after speaking about Hellfire, you will always find one verse a few verses, balancing it speaking

00:19:12--> 00:19:33

about heaven speaking about gender, making you smile. Once again, this is a lot. This is the wisdom and this is why when it comes to reminding people don't always Doom people. Sometimes you have a person who speaks and every time he speaks to remind people, he's just dooming them. So by the time you end up, you know, in the lecture, you already start feeling the heat of the fire of jahannam behind you.

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. We need to balance it. We need to make sure that we speak about jahannam Yes, it is the Wrath of Allah, but give people hope because it is through hope that they will come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala people have sinned people have done wrong, they know they've done wrong, teach them how to come back to Allah. Teach them how to end the pleasure of Allah, the mercy of Allah give them hope that look Jenna, and Paradise is

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

Just a little stone throw away May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us Jenna.

00:20:07--> 00:20:41

This balance is important because when you have too much of hope people begin to sin thinking, well Allah has been to forgive me. And when you have too much of fear you think as it is, I mean, Jana, I'm already in hell, let me just end up doing what I want. So this is why this balance is extremely important. hadith of salmonella piracy Roby Allahu anhu reported in Sudan a TV media also in Lusaka, among Hakeem, he says salmonella faricy, when he heard this was in a Johanna mallamma Ajay marine la has about two ababwa, liquid Nevada juices.

00:20:44--> 00:21:36

With number 44 soda to the agent it says indeed, Johanna Hellfire is the promised place for all of them. It has seven doors, and each door already has an apportioned number of people who will enter through it. He says I felt so scared. I was so worried. I felt quite despondent, my heart was literally breaking. And then verses were revealed. The next verse 45 in tokina, fee jen naati. Oh, as for the righteous, they will be in the gardens, they will be in gardens that have Indian gushing springs. And then there is description of the gardens of Paradise. Look at the smile. Once again, the hope was kindled in the heart of the Sahaba. And I'm sure it happens to us all. So there are

00:21:36--> 00:21:39

powerful lessons to be learned, even when it comes to our own children.

00:21:40--> 00:22:21

If we continue scolding, admonishing, and we never ever praise we never acknowledge, then definitely that will not be a balanced upbringing. But we need to praise we need to acknowledge we need to give them a pat on the back when they've done something correct. And then when they've done something wrong, there comes a gentle reminder, even if it is just a movement of the eye, a little expression, and they become conscious of the fact that they've made a mistake. That's all we need to do. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us I see some beat up their children so thoroughly that the children begin to hate the deen they begin to hate their parents, they begin not to understand their purpose

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

in this world. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us patience. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to bring up our children in the best possible way. I mean,

00:22:30--> 00:22:53

then we have the issue of paradise. Do you know today in this world, we may have a few differences. Some of us might not like each other for some reason. Because shavon is bad. We always say people are brilliant. Shaytan is bad. So Chopin makes us hate one another makes us not want to look at one another and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. So sometimes if you were told,

00:22:55--> 00:23:03

if you were told, just hypothetically, that for you is paradise on condition that the biggest enemy you had in this world is going to be your neighbor in heaven.

00:23:05--> 00:23:42

May Allah forgive us? Allah subhanho wa Taala help us? You know what will happen? You've got to close your eyes and say, well, that's very cheap. It's a bargain. Really, I'll take it all the enemies can be my neighbors, no problem. When you get two gentlemen, if you get two gentlemen, nobody's going to be your enemy. In general, the hearts will be pure, the mind will be of the highest level. They will be absolute perfection. There will be no form of resentment in the heart whatsoever. Not at all. And this is why the general feeling sometimes when we speak to married people, and we tell them in Paradise, you go to be with your spouse, and you're busy trying to smile

00:23:42--> 00:24:21

and they frowning and you're wondering what's going on here. And they thinking but I struggled my whole life. And you're still telling me I'm going to be in paradise with the same spouse. But you don't know they will be absolutely perfect. They look how you want them to look. They think how you want them to think they do what you want them to do. So panela not even remote control. It's more mind control. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala that is gentlemen, that is paradise. in paradise. You get what you wish for Subhana Allah, Allah says no resentment in the heart, you will never have resentment. So it is reported that the pre Islamic era there were some tribal issues between beltane

00:24:21--> 00:24:38

bhanwar de Bono Hashem, some of these little tribes, they had a few little issues. Later on, the people accepted Islam. And after that Allah subhanho wa Taala is describing Jenna and Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, when azana mafioso duty him meaning

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

babine in Paradise, we would have removed from their hearts or their chests, any resentment for one another. They will be brothers reclining on beddings facing one another. With so much of love, no matter who you are. This

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

reclining The fact is get to paradise. That's what I always tell people stop debating about what you're going to get there first get there, then you see you will have absolutely everything. So some of the narrations make mention of these people reclining who will they be? They will be according to the narration of tamari even though I'd be hard to make mention of it Abu Bakr, Omar and the Allahu anhu and Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously, the verse extends to us all to say as brothers by the will of Allah, we will be in general and we will be reclining with no resentment, no hatred in your heart, absolute love so much of goodness, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us with Jana.

00:25:40--> 00:26:16

Then in Bharani, there is a narration of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah the Allahu anhu saying that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once passed a group of his companions, he looked at them and they were busy laughing quite loudly. Now you know, with us we need to know something as muslimeen you are allowed to laugh definitely. But there are limits to it. You don't love so much that you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, people sometimes laugh to the degree that their belly begins to move the others are not laughing at the joke they laughing at the way you laughing? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us it happens. And we love so much that we don't know what has happened and

00:26:16--> 00:26:37

we continue laughing and every time we think of it, we love that life is not at all a joke. We are allowed to joke we are allowed to enjoy a little bit of some of the lighter moments, perhaps some laughter and so on. But we need to make sure we remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala records absolutely everything we are going to return to Allah. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam reminded them,

00:26:38--> 00:27:02

he looks at them and he says, Molly our account ohakune you know, what is it? I'm seeing you laughing meaning laughing to this extent. So they were silent for a while. And also de la sala went off. And a little while later jabril le salon came to Mohammed Salah salah and revealed a verse to him. And he went back and recited the verse to them. What was this verse? When he admonished them? When he reminded them?

00:27:03--> 00:27:22

What happened is, they became silent for a while and then Subhanallah that, you know, the noise started once again. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam returned and told them that jabril alaihe salam has come to me and given me a verse to tell you the following. Verse number 49, of surah will

00:27:24--> 00:27:29

never been a baddie. me

00:27:39--> 00:27:53

give good news to my worshipers, give them news that indeed I am the most forgiving, Most Merciful. That is Allah subhanho wa Taala I am most forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:27:54--> 00:28:31

And my punishment is also extremely painful. SubhanAllah look at the balance. Whatever you do, strike a balance. You want to laugh, you need to cry as well. You want to enjoy you need to make sure you enjoy as well. You will have good days you will have days that may not be so good. You will have a day of profit you will have another of loss, you will gain something you might lose something that is a lot that is the plan. None of us can say everything is just moving perfect in one direction. Perfection is only when we have plugged in with Allah subhanho wa Taala completely when we are happy with his decree and his choice for us. Beautiful verse May Allah subhanho wa Taala make

00:28:31--> 00:28:51

us more conscious of the fact that he is the Fuhrer Rahim, most forgiving, Most Merciful Allahumma inaka. One to hit Bula for one, Oh Allah indeed you are most forgiving you love to forgive. So forgive us. That is a powerful drought, which is meant to be made even during the eaves in the month of Ramadan.

00:28:52--> 00:29:36

Then we have verse number 95 of the same sort of and I will end with this list. So to Egypt. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had so many people who harmed him, some in Makkah through defecation on his back, there was a woman in the galleys of Mecca an elderly lady who used to throw dirt, and that which we would consider the bin was empty. Now the villa style Villa on Mohammed salatu salam regularly, that is blasphemous. That is terrible. That is unacceptable. Then there were others who used to mock and laugh when he used to walk by they used to nudge each other and say this is the man who claims that jabril comes to him. This is the man who claims that revelation comes to

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

him from heaven. He used to walk away no response by reply to these fools May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease. May He grant us a lesson from this. Don't these are haters, literally haters, meaning they have nothing better to do than to hate. They are not looking at the core. They're not looking at reality. They just have a grudge in their hearts. They are trying to vent it they don't like you come what may. That's it.

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

So they just picking on you may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this quality. So with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, they used to say things they used to utter hurtful words. They used to make a mockery of stopzilla but Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus comforting Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam telling him something very, very powerful. We need it. Do you know why we need to hear this? Today 1400 odd years later, people are creating videos to try and degrade Mohamed Salah Salah. They are creating cartoons to try and rile up the Muslim mean. They are creating cartoons in order to try and degrade Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Do you really think they will succeed to degrade

00:30:44--> 00:31:15

the undegraded Subhana Allah, every time they've tried something will law he it is the plan of Allah, that it has the opposite effect every single time without fail. There is not once that they tried something that it did not have the opposite effect. More and more people turned towards Allah and more and more people fell in love with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the Muslims became stronger than non Muslims became Muslims and those who were enemies realized that this man is definitely a blessed human being.

00:31:16--> 00:31:38

Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and this is a hadith mentioned by a tapa Ronnie, as well as in El Bazar by LFSR hadith of Anna Sidney Malik roseola. And he says when they used to laugh, scoff and make a mockery of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, prophets, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah had gibreel Allah salatu wa sallam come to him with the following verse number 95, of swords, a legend

00:31:39--> 00:32:01

in cafe Naka, de we are sufficient for you against those who are mocking, we have protected you, your reputation is intact, no matter how much they mock, they will not be able to harm your reputation, Chapter closed.

00:32:02--> 00:32:44

So whatever they do is actually against them, not against Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, look at those people of Mecca and ask yourself at that time, there were very few Muslims, they mocked, they laughed they did. Today there are 2 billion Muslims on the globe. lavaca 2 billion. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala help us each one of them saying what I shall do and Mohammed Abu rasuluh and I bear witness that Muhammad May peace be upon him is indeed the worshipper of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his final messenger May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of judgment and May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to react in the

00:32:44--> 00:33:18

correct way. In the most same way when people try to blemish the image of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that is a non blemish double image. It is us in fact, who sometimes make a fool of ourselves the way we react sometimes is not the way the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would have reacted. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us since And may Allah subhanho wa Taala resurrect us with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and the companions are Sol Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homo BMD Ganesha to Allah Allah Highland, Mr. Furukawa to boo Nick
