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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. Who Allah Allah, he was happy woman. Voila. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala. We thank him for having given us this beautiful month of Ramadan. And we thank him for giving us still a few more days of the month of Ramadan. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us from among those who earn forgiveness in this beautiful month of Ramadan. My brothers and sisters we also 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 He bless every one of us to and our offspring those to

00:00:42--> 00:01:24

come up to the end May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep them steadfast on the straight path and May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them. I mean, my brothers and sisters, a generation of Sahih Muslim, as well as soon an attorney the narration by NSF numerical, the Allahu anhu. He says that the people of Mecca constantly asked Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for some sign. They said we want to see a sign and one of those signs that they requested was that the mount of Safa become gold. And another sign they requested was that he did something for them to prove that he was a messenger. So Allah subhanho wa Taala had responded to tell them that some of these signs if they were to come,

00:01:24--> 00:02:05

and still people did not accept them, perhaps the Wrath of Allah and the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala would definitely descend quite quickly. However, there was a sign that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that was that he pointed towards the moon and the moon split into two and later on came together. It is reported that to this day science has discovered a crack in the moon Allah knows best but it is there still those who have gone to the moon if they have got to the moon Subhana Allah they would be able to bring back for us this information. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the man and the conviction for Indeed

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

Allah says in the opening verses of the surah named after the moon Katara batty Serato shuffle comma.

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

Wire Punahou

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

stem in indeed The hour has come near and the moon has been split. The moon has been split. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says whenever a sign comes to them, they then say this is magic. So they are the ones who asked for the sign and when it comes, they say no, that's magic. So what do you want? May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us whenever we see the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala in our own lives, let us turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala For indeed these signs will keep on Appearing Day to day in our own lives, we will see so many things, which are personal signs, which means Allah is delivering a message for me and for you. Sometimes the person sees a dream.

00:03:04--> 00:03:42

And yes, we know that when it comes to dreams, we should not be getting too excited about a dream. A dream, in a lot of cases is just the sixth sense. Perhaps some something that you may have been thinking about, you may have come across and you dream about it, something you're worried about. Some people become so obsessed with their dreams that they think that every single dream has a meaning. The reality is very few of these dreams would actually have meaning. But at the same time, if there was a meaning to any dream, it would only be for us and it would be for us to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to become more distant from the devil. This is the primary aim of a

00:03:42--> 00:04:21

good dream is to draw us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So remember, no matter what you've seen in terms of a dream, do not become so obsessed as though somebody is trying to give you revelation because indeed, Revelation stops with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is a message indeed if it is a good message, or sometimes it may be a bad dream. What we are taught regarding nightmares is to say hello to Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. seek Allah's protection from the curse the devil and perhaps sleep on the other side. Maybe if we could split onto the left side, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the fulfillment of the sooner and the practice of Muhammad Sallallahu

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

sallam, perhaps give out a little charity or two May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So the point being raised is the signs that come into my own life into yours. Let's not ignore them, if they are for us to draw closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala we will indeed be asked sometimes it's a sickness, sometimes it's a loss. Sometimes it's an accident, sometimes it's profit, it's gained, something you've really been praying to Allah for. And suddenly the doors open and it happens for you. Is that the moment when you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala if that's the case, you failed your test. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the fulfillment of we do ask that we make

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Good for us. I mean,

00:05:02--> 00:05:41

then we have a beautiful incident displaying that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually listens to everyone and Allah subhanho wa Taala is absolutely aware of every single detail within his own creation. There was integration or there is integration of eyeshadow calahonda reported by even imagine, as well as Al Hakim and Lima, Mohammed. She says that there was a woman by the name of colavita Allah, who was married to a certain men, and they had some children. She was married for quite a while she became old and Subhanallah gained a little bit of weight, perhaps no longer looking as young and pretty as she was the day she was married. And the husband refused to fulfill

00:05:41--> 00:06:19

her conjugal rights. And the husband says, You know what, you just like my mother, you know, it sounds like a light statement, but will law he in the eyes of Allah, it is a dangerous detrimental statement, it can actually destroy a marriage and it can destroy a person's link with Allah subhanho wa Taala you do not hurt the feelings of the vulnerable who live with you. Those who are weak, those whom perhaps are under your authority, those whom you are supposed to be looking after. And you are silently harassing them, you are troubling them you uttering words to them that are hurtful. You don't know allies watching Allah hears everything. So the lady comes to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:06:19--> 00:06:49

wa sallam and says oh messenger, this is what my husband said. I spent time with him I sacrificed and so on. Now no fulfillment of my conjugal rights. And he's saying no, you just like a mother. You can stay here and that's it. I won't touch you as such. So Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously revealed verses but Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam heard the complaints, and he wanted to give her some advice. And he tried his best to gain a little bit of time in order to try and explain to her what exactly or how exactly she should

00:06:50--> 00:07:21

continue with the relationship and so on. But Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the opening verses of surah mujer de la la mujer de la or la mujer de la both are correct, mujer de la meaning the woman who came to you presenting her argument, and Al mujer de la means the argument itself that was presented. What was the argument we've just heard about you to say what should I do? This is a man I'm neither married nor am I not married. He's just keeping me dangling and he's acted the statement here. He doesn't want to fulfill my rights. I haven't done anything wrong.

00:07:22--> 00:07:33

So Allah says, further Samia, la colon Lottie tujuh de la cabeza, Mooji. Ha, what a shaky in Allah, Allah.

00:07:35--> 00:07:45

Allah, Allah has heard the statement of the one who has come to you to present her argument complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:46--> 00:07:53

And Allah has heard the discussion between the two of you. And indeed Allah is all hearing all why Subhana Allah,

00:07:54--> 00:08:35

Allah is all watchful eye shadow Allah says, I could not hear what she said. But later on, we found out what happened because Allah reveals so many verses, explaining that if a person utters this type of statement, they must pay a penalty. And that penalty is very severe, they should fast for 60 consecutive days, unless they freed a slave or unless they have engaged in certain acts of worship, in order to end the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that is not just the oppression of an individual, but it is usurping the rights of that individual. And it is transgressing against the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For you to look after those who are under your authority,

00:08:35--> 00:08:55

starting with your own spouses and your children. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us the best of husbands and may He make us the best of wives. We're lucky that comes but with a struggle, there is an effort required. Without an effort, you will not be able to be the best man or the best woman to your own spouse. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us and understanding.

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

Then we have Surah

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

Surah to Hashem where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the qualities of the unsolved, the unsolved were those who lived in Madina munawwara and you know, there was a huge error that took place where the population the Muslim population of Mecca, left Mecca because they were persecuted and driven out of Mecca, Tomoko Rama, and they were arriving in Madina munawwara. Today, perhaps people would, like you know, turn them away. These are refugees asylum seekers, don't let the ship dock because we are too clean to allow these people to come and dock on our lands and some might allow it to say no problem humanitarian grounds we will allow them but sometimes they are kept in tents and they are

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

kept in conditions that are not befitting a human being. We ask Allah to make it easy. A lot of these asylum seekers happen to be Muslim men who are persecuted on lands not allowed to read their Salah or fast not allowed to even be Muslim. And then they depart in order to seek a place where at least they can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala this can

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

ISIS was averted when it came to the time of Muhammad salatu salam because the solution that was prophetic was that every family in Madina munawwara takes one family from Makkah to Makkah Rama, problem solved Subhan Allah, if they were 10,000 here they ate up v 10,000 without anyone knowing that there is a problem, no deficit so panela so if there were 100,000 and these were 100,000 they came in each one took in one family, may Allah grant us ease today, we cannot live with our own parents. Forget about a strange family. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala help us open our hearts and minds. May Allah help us become people who are tolerant on both sides. Sometimes the parents make it

00:10:43--> 00:10:58

difficult for their children to look after them. My beloved parents of old age make it easy for your sons and daughters to look after you do not be people who are very demanding and very interfering in every aspect of the lives of your daughters in law, Naaman.

00:11:01--> 00:11:27

May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all? It's a reality. It's important for us to know that the problem is sometimes twofold. Yes, people complained. My children are not looking after me. Now I'm old. But my beloved father, perhaps you are a person who is very difficult to get along with. Learn how to live with people learn to become easygoing. Don't be too demanding, don't be too interfering. When you want to correct correct with goodness and understand that that is your

00:11:28--> 00:11:52

responsibility from Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah grant us goodness, and may He make us the best of people may make it easy for others to get along with us in a way that we do not compromise the deen. But at the same time we develop our character and conduct. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes a certain condition a certain situation that took place amongst the unsung once Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a visitor.

00:11:53--> 00:12:09

And he called out to his people to the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, saying, I have this visitor who from amongst you is going to host this guest of mine tonight. So one of the answer immediately he was a poor man, he said I will host and he knew he didn't have anything, but he wanted to host

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

so he took the man home in order to be fed in the evening. And he told his wife prepare something to eat. She says we don't have anything.

00:12:20--> 00:12:50

He says no problem, the little bit that we do have for the children. What you do is let the children sleep, pretend like you are cooking and let them sleep while they're waiting for the food. And in the meantime, we will ensure or make sure that this guest of ours does not notice that there is not much food. So we will eat together and I will pretend to be eating with him and what you do is the lamp that we have, which shows what's going on. We pretend like something's gone wrong with it. So it will turn off here in South Africa. You won't have to do that I think the loadshedding will help you.

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all.

00:12:55--> 00:13:36

So they turned off that lamp and the man was pretending to be eating and ensured that the food was eaten by the guest. And later on Subhana Allah, they did not eat but the guests had eaten and he had a good time. Mashallah, in the morning, Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he knew what had happened. And Allah subhanho wa Taala had revealed versus the verses of Surah Al Hajj Hashem was number nine. While you have your own Allah fusina him Oh, can I beat him? kasasa It's a long verse we Allah describes the good qualities of the answer. And Allah says they love those who have made hegira those who have come to them, they are loved by the answer. And these

00:13:36--> 00:14:21

are the qualities that they have. They give preference over themselves to others, even regarding things that they themselves desperately need. They are prepared to give it up in order to please Allah subhanho wa Taala how many of us prepared to give up not what do we need? What is excess what is unnecessary, what is over and above our need, that too We are weak, we feel miserly, we become very very attached to our, our items, our belongings, we don't even want to give that which we haven't used in two whole years in terms of clothing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us go back and look at our closets, our cupboards, and perhaps remove just the clothing that we haven't used

00:14:21--> 00:14:31

for a year or two years and put a smile on someone's face this eat inshallah, I hope that clothing is cut in a way that if your sister wears it, she will not have to engage in Toba thereafter.

00:14:32--> 00:15:00

My mothers and sisters it's important for us to dress appropriately and when we donate clothing, make sure it is clothing that is appropriate and fit to be worn by others without earning the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah grant us ease so this is a quality that we learn from. Then we have sudo to Joomla sudo to Joomla is named after the Friday prayer and in it there is an instruction to leave all business dealings once the call for the Friday prayer is made it

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

is prohibited for a person who is supposed to be at the gym or to continue doing business dealings. Yes, those who are not meant to be they're not supposed to be there. Perhaps they may continue. But when it comes to the males who are meant to be there, the muslimeen who are upright they're meant to be at the masjid. Once the call is called, you're meant to make haste to the house of Allah. So there was an incident that is made mention of Mustafa con la hadith of Jabir ibn Abdullah hora de Allahu anhu. He says that there was a time when a certain

00:15:30--> 00:15:38

number of containers had come through from a sham. I'm calling them containers, but they were some camels that had come.

00:15:39--> 00:15:47

And it was a caravan game with merchandise at the time of Juma it landed, and there was some commodities for sale.

00:15:48--> 00:16:25

And so some of the companions happened to get up and walk towards the caravan in order to achieve something in order to buy and sell something. And they left Mohammed salatu salam, addressing the people in terms of the hookah and the sermon, there were only 12 people remaining, you know, the top of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu they were remaining. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses that have taught us a beautiful lesson. And before I read this list, let me inform you, my brothers and sisters, a Friday should be a day when from early in the morning we are conscious of the fact that today's a Friday not because it's a weekend.

00:16:27--> 00:17:02

Not because we're going to go out on Saturday and Sunday, but because we are meant to be at the house of Allah on time. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not ask you much take a look at people of other faiths will lie they will go to their churches and synagogues and places of worship for hours on end a few times a week and they won't even mind they will look forward to it with us. We're lucky that hookah does not take longer than half an hour and we find ourselves dilly dallying rushing last minute and we are the first people out now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. Take your time. Did you know there is a competition on a Friday where the angels are at the doors of all the houses of

00:17:02--> 00:17:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala to Boonen Oh 1101. They are writing down who came first who came second, your number is actually written country come out first once in our lives. Why is it we lost every single time? May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so Allah says what either ot Jonathan

00:17:25--> 00:17:47

fabu Anya Ouattara kokako Emma, when they, when they see or when they saw the business deal, or some form of amusement, they hastened towards it and left you standing. And Allah says buruma de la

00:17:48--> 00:18:30

mina la wamena deja, tell them that which is with Allah is better than this past time and business. Get to Allah subhanho wa Taala what Allah has in store for you is far better than anything else. You know, the Hadith I made mention of a few minutes ago regarding the angels taking names one by one. The Hadith says for either Faraj al Imam Moussa, who for whom yesterday Runa dick, once the man comes out, and he greets the people in order to start delivering the hookah, the angels close their books and they come to listen also. So that means anyone who came after that, perhaps they may be fulfilling that Juma to a certain extent, but their name will not be written in that book of records

00:18:30--> 00:18:44

that the angels have Subhana Allah, May Allah forgive us, and this is why make sure that on a Friday, we arrived early, and we sit for a few moments, perhaps with some voluntary prayer, perhaps with some tilava of the Quran and so on.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

Then we have sort of

00:18:47--> 00:19:31

a surah that is named after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of his name's Alma death is the one who is enveloped in garments. Why is it called this because when jabril alayhi salatu was Salam first came with revelation, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he ran down the mountain and he went to Khadija been to Hawaii literally, Allahu Allah. And he told her, the Milani de Milani, he felt cold and he said Cover me cover me and so she covered her she covered him. And another term for covering is the the Rooney which means Cover me as well. To be enveloped, so Allah says thereafter and this is integration with de Pon, la also of Jabir ibn Abdullah of the Allahu anhu. He speaks of

00:19:31--> 00:19:46

it, he says, Allah addressed Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam after some time, telling him to get up and to warn the people to inform them that he is the messenger initially was the prophethood and thereafter came the instruction to get up and inform the others.

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

That feel O you who is enveloped in garments, comb.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Get up and warn the people while a backup backup bill and

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

declared the praise of your Lord was the backup Papa heal and cleanse your clothing were Rogers

00:20:08--> 00:20:14

and leave all that which is impure in terms of acts of worship, as well as any other form of impurity

00:20:17--> 00:20:52

that stuck in and do not brag about the goodness that you've done to others in order to achieve something more something greater. You know, some people, they do good to you and they remind you up to your deathbed. You know, you survived only because of me. I helped you with five rounds once when you were 10 years old. Please relax me Allah forgive us. People have this habit. This is haram. It's not allowed. You are reducing or destroying or nullifying the reward of a charity by bragging about it continuing to mention it so what you could have given him a goldmine now Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you with another two inshallah.

00:20:54--> 00:21:32

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, bear patience for your Lord, one euro because bill, for the sake of Allah bear patients, this is a powerful message for us all. We all need to call towards goodness and we all need to bear patience when it comes to adopting the instructions of Allah. These instructions and commands are not easy to fulfill. You know, we are actually living in something known as a test for believers. We call it life. It's a test for believers. One of the points of evidence that this is actually a test. Have you ever thought of the fact that those things that are good for you,

00:21:33--> 00:22:09

we normally feel lazy to fulfill them. Our bodies don't want to do them sometimes. And that which is bad for you detrimental for you, we are quick to do it. Starting from foods Subhanallah the food which is very bad for you, we want to eat, you know in this part of the world they say just ciao. Have you heard that? Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us just eat but when it comes to disciplined eating, it becomes difficult. You want to achieve you need to be disciplined. Well Laurie, my brothers and sisters, we are more prepared to be disciplined in our food, only to have a better body for a little while than to be disciplined for the sake of Allah to have a better hereafter for

00:22:09--> 00:22:31

eternity. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can bear patience when we get up for Salah to fudger we just dress appropriately we abstain from foul language we abstain from prohibition, we abstain from haram pornography, gambling, whatever else it is drugs, alcohol, anything that ends the Wrath of Allah we stay away from it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

let's move on Surah Al Motta foon.

00:22:35--> 00:23:18

It is reported in a hadith narrated by Abu murgia as well as insane and unnecessary of kidnap buzzworthy Allahu anhu, that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to Madina, munawwara many of the people used to cheat when it came to business, what type of cheating you know, they used to weigh, whether it was the wheat, the dates, whatever else it was, the barley, whatever else it was, when they used to weigh they used to shortchange the people. So they would take to the full measure, and they would give something short because perhaps the weight on one side was already you know, it had a headstart perhaps it started already at 10 grams, 20 grams, so you are cheating by 10 or 20

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

grams. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus ya know, Lil Mata Fifi,

00:23:26--> 00:23:34

destruction to those who cheat or who showed change in business. And the verses continue, there is a whole surah

00:23:35--> 00:24:04

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam read these verses and the people of Medina to key and you know what, they changed their ways and habits and they became people who are upright, so much so that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made dua for Baraka, in the measurements of Madina munawwara To this day, you go to Madina, munawwara Alhamdulillah you will find a lot of Baraka and blessings in the dates that you may purchase from them, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us Baraka and blessings in everything we do.

00:24:06--> 00:24:45

Remember, the lesson we learned from this is in our own lives, never cheat in business, never cheat, someone never shortchanged them. It may not be weighing it may be something else. You promise a person upon the sale of a vehicle. You know what this vehicle is never been involved in an accident, but you know that you just cannot beat it. Why? What will law he the money you're going to get from them will come without blessing, void of all forms of Baraka and blessings. Don't cheat, be honest. The Hadees is for insalata, verbena barakallahu Murphy Hema when the two people buying and selling are honest and open, clear, transparent, Allah will grant and blessings in that deal of this. But if

00:24:45--> 00:24:58

they are not, then the Baraka and the blessings are snatched away. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us honest and upright business people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and grant us beautiful sustenance, that will be a means of our entry into paradise. I mean

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

then, we have

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

So,

00:25:01--> 00:25:45

I'm sure we all know it by heart or a lot of us would know it of my heart we read it this evening in Salatu tarawih in the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of something very, very powerful and I invite you to read this surah as well as the next one, it is called a Shara or alumna Shara. So you have aloha which is known as what baja La Liga, and the next surah, which is lm nasura, la casa de la. I invite you to read the sutras with the English meaning in order to see how powerful they are when a person is in distress and how Allah is comforting Mohammed salatu salam by telling him something, a message that every one of us needs, do you want to hear it? Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:45--> 00:26:11

and this is a hadith of June, two people Sophia Mustafa Ali, he says gibreel alayhi salatu wa sallam, he took a bit of time to come with revelation in the beginning. So revelation that come and then there was a pause for a time. And during this pause, you know the machine happened to make statements and various people said so many things. And some people said, Oh, you know what? This Angel has now abandoned Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and

00:26:12--> 00:26:45

when the next time jabril, Allah is salatu salam came Surah Taha was revealed and Allah says, verse number three of that surah Maota, caribou kawamata Allah, your rub your Lord has not abandoned you know, does he detest you, he's not detested you he does not dislike you. He's not angry with you, and he has not abandoned you. The fact that there was a delay in Revelation does not mean that Allah hates you dislikes you does not love you and has abandoned you. And Allah says later on, while as

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

bukata

00:26:49--> 00:26:56

novo very soon your Lord will give you so much until you are absolutely pleased.

00:26:58--> 00:27:35

My brothers and sisters, the messages for myself and yourself. In life, we make dua we call out to Allah and sometimes what we want does not happen immediately. So we begin to think Allah has abandoned me, Allah didn't listen to me. Perhaps Allah doesn't like me. Perhaps he's detested me. Perhaps he's angry with me. But I'm asking Allah forgiveness every day, wait, when the time is right, even if it means 10 years from now, then it will come. And if Allah knows it's not good for you, he did not abandon you. He's not giving it to you, because he knows it will be damaging for you. That's a blessing. So don't think because you don't have what you want. That the one who owns

00:27:35--> 00:28:10

the giving is upset with you. Don't think that not even for a moment, that's actually shaitan coming to you. Yes, we should be checking ourselves is my life in order, am I reading my Salah Am I on the right page in sha Allah with Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning Am I doing that which will earn the pleasure of Allah, if you are trying and you're seeking forgiveness, and you are a person who's really calling out to Allah with a soft heart, don't think for a moment that Allah has abandoned you, he knows best when to give you what you want. And if he knows, he won't, he won't. And Allah says, soon he will give you so much You will be happy. Did you know that whenever you call out to

00:28:10--> 00:28:18

Allah, that are that prayer is always answered always in one of a few ways. One of them he gives you what you want immediately there and now.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

They're in and then

00:28:21--> 00:29:04

the other is utilize it and gives you a little bit later on. And the other is He replaces it with one of two things either he removes from your life a difficulty that you may have been destined to face, but at the same time he removed it because of your job. Or sometimes he gives you something else in return or he holds it and gives you in the hereafter something really grand and great in return for all the hours you used to make so much so I can just imagine a person arriving on the day of judgment and he sees heaps of very, very good deeds and heaps of everything he wants in general. And he's told you know what? This was all the DA and the supplications you made to us that we did

00:29:04--> 00:29:40

not give you in the world. We kept it in store for you here in paradise. Wouldn't you like that? Subhana Allah still, I remember speaking to a young man. He said, No, no, no, no, I want what I'm asking for here. Hello. May Allah grant us ease and Eman and goodness and yes, you must make your do and you must continue passionately calling out to Allah without losing hope regarding what you want for as long as it's something permissible that itself is part of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala then we have the last part of the plan and he shall I will end with these two this as you know being the last episode of this beautiful Ramadan that we've had in this beautiful Masjid here. in Midland,

00:29:40--> 00:30:00

we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept it from us. And indeed, it has been a really great Ramadan. We ask Allah to protect us from shavon. Let's listen to these last two sutras of the Quran. A lot of us would know them by heart. They are called Alma with a tan. The two sutras of protection. Why are they

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

Data Protection. Let's listen to the audio. There are so many narrations explaining this. Some of them are much tougher coonelly. And some of them narrated only by Imam Bukhari, like the narration of eyeshadow, the law and the others, integration of NSF, numerical, the Alon. What I've done is taken all these narrations and I will give you the story. At the time of rasulillah salam, there was a Jewish servant of his who had taken some of his hair and taken some of the teeth of the comb that he was using, in by the instruction of some of the other people from amongst the Jewish people who had intended to cast a spell on Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they took it, they took 11

00:30:39--> 00:31:21

of these teeth of the comb, and they tie these hair and they blew in it and did whatever they wanted to and they, they put it in a certain well under a certain rock. And it resulted in Rasulullah saw Salam struggling as a result, obviously he was a Navy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It did not affect revelation in the sense that nothing wrong happened. But this only occurred in order for us as an oma to learn a lesson how to protect yourself from the devil. So people ask sometimes Why did this happen to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was perfect, but Allah says he was an example for you to follow in order to be an example for you and I to follow. Allah made him go through certain things

00:31:22--> 00:32:02

that he did not deserve to go through. But in order for that to be a lesson for us to say that you as an oma, if you follow him to the tee, you will be able to achieve the protection from the same devils who try to harm him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam so that was the beauty of it. It's not that there was anything wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a deeper understanding the status of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is too high for us to utter words of disrespect. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, so he could see certain things, and it affected him in a certain way. And this lasted the whole month. And according to some

00:32:02--> 00:32:52

narrations, a few more months, some take it as far as six months. And in the interim, he was quite ill and sick and I shall have the lavon has is one day, Allah sent to him two angels, one at his feet, and one at his blessing. Head salallahu alayhi wasallam the one asks the other What is wrong with him? So the other says, there is a spell that has been cast on him, which means magic. Mutt boo boo. That's the word used magic. So the first one says, who did it. So the name comes about. And this is obviously by revelation. The name of the person was libidinal as Somalia hoody. And so, he says, What did he do? So the other Angel answers and he says, he took 11 strands of hair or the hair

00:32:52--> 00:33:22

of Mohammed Salah Salaam and tie them on 11 of the teeth of the comb and place them under the rock in a in the pit of a well known as the one be either one. So, what is the solution? In the meantime, verses of the Quran were revealed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam sent some of his companions to that well, at the pit of the well he told him you will find this this this they found it they brought it back to him exactly as was described.

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed 11 verses. The first were the verses of surah.

00:33:31--> 00:34:14

The first surah and then the next surah. Will bill Falak that is Surah Al Falak. And then Colorado bill of Venus that is certainly us the total of 11 verses between the two sutras. As he read one verse, he released one not he read another verse, he released another not by the time he completed all 11 verses, he had released all the notes and he was completely and totally cured. And this was taught to us from that day, that if you would like protection from anything superstitious, the devils the evil eye, no matter what it is, you need to read in advance. Don't wait for something to happen. Read in advance every morning and evening. These two sutras Falak and not thrice each

00:34:14--> 00:34:53

morning and evening no matter what every single day of your life and it will result in a metal arm around you. You add to that what is known as ayatul kursi. I'm sure you would know what I'm speaking about certain verses of Surah Al Baqarah. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us all remember, prevention is better than cure. You need to be a pure person. You need to be reading early morning and every evening without being lazy and you will be protected then if something happens to you go and seek medical attention inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala help you. Allah subhanho wa Taala open your doors in mind now law protect the soul. Let me go through the meaning of these beautiful verses

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

because we know the Arabic let me go through the English in order for us to appreciate what is being said. Say

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

I seek refuge in the lord of Daybreak from the evil of that which he created, and from the evil of darkness when it settles, and from the evil of the blowers in knots, and from the evil of an envier, when he envies Subhana Allah that's one Surah Surah Allah, then we have so rottenness say I seek refuge in the lord of mankind, the Sovereign of mankind, the God of mankind, from the evil of the retreating, whisperer,

00:35:30--> 00:36:09

who whispers evil into the breasts of men from amongst jinn kind as well as mankind Subhana Allah, so we are asking Allah protection and we repeating these statements thrice morning and evening and that is how inshallah we will achieve protection. Remember, these are simple, beautiful, melodious verses of the Quran that are revealed right at the end of the Quran, it's important for us to memorize them and inshallah to repeat them on a daily basis with conviction. Go through the meanings and inshallah Don't forget, like I said, the two sutras of Doha and the Shara. Remember to go through the meanings inshallah, it will bring about a lot of comfort, just by knowing what Muhammad

00:36:09--> 00:36:38

Sallallahu Sallam went through, and the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala for him, as well as for every single one of us. May Allah accept this entire month of Ramadan from us and whatever we have forwarded for his sake, and May Allah forgive our shortcomings and errors and mistakes For indeed we are human.
