Moscow, was

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

beholding

00:03:29--> 00:03:35

smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi

00:03:36--> 00:03:56

we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we thank him upon all conditions and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless every single one of us to send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his household, his companions. May Allah bless them all. I mean, my brothers and sisters, these beautiful verses of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:57--> 00:04:34

speaks of the creation of the heavens and the earth and then explains that we are all to be worshipping Allah because He is the Creator, whoever made you deserves that you worship him and him alone, whoever created you deserves that you worship Him alone, wherever you are going to return to, obviously deserves that you worship Him alone. And that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this number 48 of Seurat that he had, Allah says nVs or should I say verse number 47 of solitude Lariat, and the heaven we constructed with strength.

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

And indeed,

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

we are, it's expanded.

00:04:42--> 00:04:50

It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who constructed the heavens this I've just read from the Sahih International translation.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala says we have created the heavens and this is Allah telling us He is the one who made he's the one who created

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala indeed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:11--> 00:05:54

speaks of how he created it with his own hands. And at the same time he created it in such a beautiful way and at the same time he has expanded it in a way that is mind boggling completely. If you look at the skies, you will not understand what's going on, to be honest, we can only see to a certain point, even with our telescopes, and our space shuttles and everything else. Beyond that, we don't even know what there is and how Allah subhanho wa Taala made it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, it is with power. Did we all with power did we construct the heaven verily we are able to extend the vastness of space there off. That's a different translation. That's the noble on

00:05:54--> 00:06:32

translation. So you see how Allah subhanho wa jal is making mention of his power and how he makes mention of the fact that he definitely has spread and spaced out the sky and the space. For you and me, it is space for Allah, it is a creature of Allah, what you see in front of you right now is not an empty gap. For you and me it's an empty gap. It's actually oxygen or two and made up perhaps of other gases. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to help us understand, when we say this is empty, it's actually empty for you and me because we can't see anything there. There could be so many of the creatures of the unseen in that particular space, we call it space.

00:06:33--> 00:07:14

But for Allah, it's a creature of Allah, what is the creature, it is atmosphere, it is oxygen, it is something inside this air that's between you and me right now, there is a I can move my hand. But that's not just empty space for Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is something that, you know, not only angels or jinn kind or anything of that nature, but even the air itself is a creature of Allah. So let's remember this because it's very, very deep. When we say everywhere, the term wear, is actually understood differently by different people. Because if you say, for example, that this is a blank space, for you and me, like I said, it is blank for Allah, it's not a blank space. It's one of these

00:07:14--> 00:07:25

creatures and he determines exactly what type of creature will fill what we think is a gap. Because you know, sometimes you can breathe carbon monoxide, you can breathe,

00:07:26--> 00:08:07

gases that might kill you actually. And sometimes it can be something very, very detrimental and dangerous for us. And sometimes it's pure oxygen, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us an understanding. So then Allah says, and the earth we have spread out an excellent is the preparer. The one who did it is absolutely perfect. Allah spread out the earth in such a unique way The earth is round as we know, but it's spread out, it's spaced completely and Allah placed on it, the hills and all the other different landforms and so on. All this is in order to hold it together and for the beautification of it so that man is not bored with monotony. This is something interesting

00:08:07--> 00:08:41

because if Allah wanted monotony and create monotony, he would have created every one of us looking exactly the same, that there would have been no difference in color, size, shape, and so on. In fact, our voices are very different. Some have a squeaky voice, and some have a hoarse voice. Some might have a general common, you know, voice, you have a masculine and a feminine voice. This is all part of Allah's creation. And this is why if you have a male with a female's voice, you know, you might get a bit irritated. But if you have a female with a male's voice, you get even more irritated, perhaps May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the uniqueness that he has created

00:08:41--> 00:09:02

us by and May He grant us the ability to be from among those who appreciate this. So he tells us I made the skies I made the earth and I want to tell you what I deserve. All what you have to do in return. So Allah says well out of the foreigner of a near magma he doin then he says above that, all things we created in pace.

00:09:03--> 00:09:40

Perhaps you will remember to make it interesting. reproduction did not have to be with pairs. Allah made it that way. If Allah wanted he could have caused it to happen in a different way. But Allah says all things we created them in pairs you have positive you have negative you have up you have down you have right you have left you have you know the front you have the back, you have male you have female you in everything. And Allah says this is in order that you ponder, we created you in pairs. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. And you know, it is true that Allah has decreed and decided who your spouse will be. And this is on a different note altogether. But at the

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

same time it is also decreed perhaps that people were going to be foolish and not hunt and not look so they will remain single, May Allah forgive us. So remember, you need to fulfill your role as a human being to look to hunt, to make the effort to talk to open your mouth to make sure you've tried and then inshallah what was meant to come to pass will come to pass but if we

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

just blame that deal. You need to know Allah kept it so unique that I don't know what the future holds for me. But Allah knows the fact that Allah knows what the future holds for me does not mean I need to sit back, relax and forget about making an effort. Because part of Allah His plan, he says, make an effort, and then you'll achieve whatever I have decided you're going to achieve. But if you don't make an effort, you are to blame for not having achieved things and I would already have written that you are going to be stupid and sit back depressed. May Allah forgive us by mothers and sisters, a lot of this needs to be addressed also to the menfolk because sometimes they have women

00:10:33--> 00:11:15

under their authority, or daughters or sisters, or whoever else it may be, and they they make no effort to get them married, or to try and sort their matters out and problems and issues and definitely the fault is theirs as people who are in authority. Similarly, we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us make decisions and choices because sometimes in life, we do know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed obstacles within our path in order for us to gain closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we will have to rise to the challenge within the obedience of Allah subhanho wa jal, you do not live in an oppressive situation forever and ever claiming this was my tech deal?

00:11:15--> 00:11:50

No, you will have to, at some stage, do something about it. address the matter come out of that oppression perhaps as best as you can, because that's part of Alan's plan. The requirement of you is to take yourself out of this oppression and depression, we asked a lot to help us you would need the assistance perhaps of those who live around you or with you, those who are in authority of you generally. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make that easy, I mean, so Allah says, we've created you in pairs, perhaps you will remember then he says, Now after mentioning these three points, one is we created the sky Secondly, we created the earth and thirdly, we created you and all

00:11:50--> 00:12:31

other creatures in pairs. So now we want you to flee to Allah flee, run towards Allah rush to Allah subhanahu wa Tada, Pharaoh in Allah, what a beautiful term Allah is using. He says, So flee to Allah subhanho wa Taala verse number 15. rush to Allah make haste to Allah, go to Allah turn to Allah seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala in whatever you are facing in life, firstly your obligations unto Allah. Unto Allah. When Haram is meant to be done and towards Allah, not towards the Haram not towards shapen and at the same time when you have a problem as well rush to Allah, to Allah face Allah go and seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala ask him read to our Salah, whatever else it is

00:12:31--> 00:13:16

pray to him make sure that you've achieved it may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in closeness look at how beautifully he tells us a I made you I made this guy's I made the so flee to Allah. Indeed I am to you from him a clear Warner, who is this, this is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he saying I come from Allah and sent from Allah to you as a clear Warner. I'm warning you. Now these verses if you notice I continued into the next surah because there is a warning of Hellfire burning, scorching, very very harmful hurting hellfire. There is a severe warning. So I continued reading until I got to verses of heaven because we want to end on a good note inshallah. But let's listen to all these

00:13:16--> 00:13:50

bubbling people who will be boiling in January, it's important for us to just listen to it because it wakes us up. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I am a clear Warner. This is referring to Muhammad Salah Solomon from Allah to you to all of us. Allah says and do not make as equal with Allah, another deity Indeed, I am to you from him a clear Warner here he's telling us the second time that I'm warning you imagine Mohammed Salah Salem come to us and tell us I'm warning you. I'm giving you a warning.

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

Allahu Akbar. Your school teacher had to tell you that you probably pee in your pants. Allah forgive us. I'm giving you a warning. I'm warning you.

00:14:02--> 00:14:07

Your mom and dad had to tell you that I think you tell them I'm warning you back. Nowadays. That's what the children would say.

00:14:09--> 00:14:42

But Allah is telling us through Muhammad wa salam I'm warning you and we still don't bat an eyelid and I've got no intention to quit my bed the evil to throw away things that are evil and bad. I could no intention to start leading five Salah day I've got no intention to dress appropriate nothing because the warning of all lies by the way. It's just a recitation of a verse of the Quran and it means nothing. Allah is that the case? Not with us, not with us. Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us moneymakers from those who understand and realize so Allah says Subhana Allah to Allah. And this is verse number 52.

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

Similarly, similarly, they came not to those before them any messenger except that they said, a magician or a madman. Whenever a messenger came whether it was Jesus Moses, Aaron, David, whoever else it was a man anyone else

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

What did they say? They said he's a madman, or he's a magician, heartless. That's it. So when people don't want to listen to the truth, they just say, a guy's crazy man is mad. He doesn't know what he's talking about. You tell them what's right and what's wrong. You teach them morality. You teach them decency. You teach them how to be straight and upright. They tell you guys crazy doesn't know stuff Roma. So Allah is telling Mohamed Salah salam, they will call you a madman, and they will call you a magician. And they have Don't worry, anyone and everyone who who's come before you to warn them. They use the same derogatory terminology to refer to them. My mothers and sisters a question I

00:15:35--> 00:15:48

have for myself and yourselves. When people want us when people tell us the truth, when people tell us what's right and wrong, when people tell us about earning gender and about staying away from jahannam don't we sometimes refer to them as this guy's crazy man? You know?

00:15:49--> 00:16:27

I hope not. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand and realize, we admit our weakness when people correct us and they are right. Just Just nod your head. And if you if you're too proud to nod your head, at least in your heart, just feel you know what the guy is right? Even if you tell them, Hey, keep quiet. But in your mind, you know, he's right. You know, that's a good way of doing things as a starting point. Admit that you're at fault. Admit that you need to improve and admit that yes, this person is correct. However, when we are correcting others, let's do so in a beautiful way. Let's try and choose the most effective method. Let's try and make them feel that you know what

00:16:27--> 00:17:01

we're all in one boat, we all have so much to improve, I might be raising two or three points that you need to rectify. And perhaps they might be 20 or 30 points that I need to rectify. So the minute you talk in this manner, you make people feel that you know what we're all in the struggle and yes, we are we actually all are. Perhaps we need different things to rectify in our lives, but we cannot simply pinpoint at someone and tell them you know what, you're the bad person and the good person? No, you might be bad in one thing, I might be bad in another 20 things that you don't know about. May Allah forgive us. So we need to actually improve collectively, in all our different weaknesses

00:17:01--> 00:17:41

that we may have the weaknesses I have, perhaps you don't have the same weaknesses and vice versa. So this is why we say let's not call the people mad or crazy. Let's try and understand that when we are corrected, we will take the correction and when we correct we will correct in the best possible manner. Then Allah says, Did they suggest it to them? Did they suggested to them rather, they themselves are a transgressing people. They themselves are a transgressing people, which means that the former disbelievers pass on these words to the Mexican people, when the previous people used to call their prophets, Mad Men and magicians, the way the mccanns said the same it seemed like they

00:17:41--> 00:18:04

graduated from the same school. It seems like someone came down and told him you know what, just use the same terminology. So Allah says, Did they teach them? Did they suggest it to them that you need to use this terminology to refer to those who correct you? Allah says Rather, they themselves are transgressing people they are wrong, they are sinful than Allah. So leave them all Mohammed for you are not to be blamed.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

That's such a beautiful first.

00:18:09--> 00:18:44

I want to take a lesson we know we know what it means, right? We just read the meaning of it. Allah is telling Muhammad wa salam leave them ignore that statement of this. In my life, and in yours, people call us crazy things. They believe that we are sometimes what we are not in terms of evil and bad. People believe you're a terrible person, you're not going to change that in a rush. Sometimes you won't be able to change it at all, because the people talking bad about you don't even know you. They haven't even read this ama that you have, let alone see your face in real life. And they say the weirdest things about you. Don't worry. They did it to Mohammed Salah Solomon, he is the most

00:18:44--> 00:19:00

loved ever to a lot of Best of creation. So it shows that there is something special about you that Allah loves and Allah knows you're higher, and you're very high. So ignore them. That's the way if you don't ignore them, you will have sleeping pills at night and you still won't go to sleep.

00:19:02--> 00:19:44

Don't worry, people will. If you're a decent person, there has to be people saying bad about you. There was a point in my life when one of the chefs told me if someone has not spoken bad about you, you're not a good human being. And I like gout to say okay, okay, you know, what? Can you think about it? Anyone from amongst you here? Anyone from amongst us? If you have wealth, you have wisdom you have, you know, something like say for example, a good looks good family, a good social standing a good financial standing a decent education and you're successful in any way religious or otherwise. You have to have people saying things about you, you have to and they will be wild

00:19:44--> 00:19:54

swipes. They don't even know your face and they will swipe so badly. Just think Allah Allah says, ignore these people. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

so leave them for you or not to be blamed. Just leave them

00:20:01--> 00:20:15

Look at how beautiful the lesson we learned from this to ignore manure. As we've said in the past its effect. People are not worth even smelling sometimes just leave them. Ignore them. You miss your taste buds, man. Allahu Akbar.

00:20:17--> 00:20:38

So yes, if you can do something about it, sometimes you don't respond, you know, I have a habit. When someone swipes maliciously, don't even give them attention by replying to them, if you reply them their intention was never ever to clarify. It was just to swipe and you actually smearing all that? Whatever it was all over. That's it. You smearing it? Come on.

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

You know, they say when there's when you're on a fan, you don't turn it on. So Allah forgive us, I tried to use respectable terminology.

00:20:46--> 00:21:27

So my mothers and sisters here we have Allah subhanho wa Taala saying and remind for Indeed, the reminder benefits the believers. So you ignore those statements and you keep on doing positive work. You keep on doing that, which is positive, just ignore them and keep on being the same good person don't allow their evil to make you evil. Remember this What a powerful piece of advice ally saying don't allow their evil to make you an evil person, not at all, but rather ignore them regarding what they are saying. But you keep on reminding beautifully and those who believe truly will benefit from the remainder. That's the prophetic way. Continue, you continue drawing your straight line. The fact

00:21:27--> 00:21:32

that people are saying your line is crooked, crooked, crooked, you don't need to turn to them because then it will become crooked.

00:21:33--> 00:22:07

You need to continue with the straight line beautifully just continue Mashallah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, remind For indeed the reminder benefits the believers. The second part of this verse tells us that if you are a true believer, you will benefit from the reminders of people with people remind you and remind us of Allah subhanho wa Taala definitely if you're a true believer when someone tells you my sister you know what you need to cover up a bit you won't feel bad and hurt you'll feel so good but I hope the person reminding doesn't make a public issue of it in order to insult in disgrace rather it's a beautiful reminder to say you know what a you know, I just I care

00:22:07--> 00:22:19

for you and I wouldn't like to see you you know book your seat in Hellfire you know boarding pass on you know, seat number eight, eight and we won't want to see that stuff it'll you'd rather just have a first class business class seat Mashallah in heaven

00:22:21--> 00:22:52

Okay, that's one way of talking but I don't think people understand that language sometimes. So you but the point I'm raising is be good about it be decent don't don't people in fact, don't even talk about Hellfire don't when I say don't talk about health. I don't mean that we shouldn't be speaking about Hellfire generally, but what I mean is don't tell a person Hey, you're going to Jannah that's what I mean. You know, we talk about hell in terms of description like today we're going to be describing because it's in the verses but it doesn't mean I told you hey you inhale that's it you burning Can you taste it? Can you feel sometimes you feel hot and you got to use all this, you know,

00:22:52--> 00:23:06

antifreeze and whatever it's called, you know, that's because you you're hot, you're burning from why use such terminology, why becomes so depressing. Why become a person who is so dooming of others or to others? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us encourage one another.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:23:11--> 00:23:48

and I did not create men, and I did not create the jinn and men except to worship me. That was the purpose of creation. I've given them a 60 to 70 years slot in terms of mankind. And I'd like them in those 60 and 70 years, firstly, to learn how to speak to learn what to do to learn how to praise me to come up to obey my instruction, to follow the rules and regulations I've laid down and to to hunt for them, to find them and then to follow them and then to die and to come back to me and I will say you pass your test. Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. You worship Me and Me alone. No people, no profits, no saints, no graves, no stones, no sticks, no trees, no relics, nothing. You don't worship

00:23:48--> 00:24:26

things. You worship the Deity, him and him alone. That's it. And then you go to Paradise. He says in these verses, you do not worship together with a lot language Allah Allah, Allah has never ever render any act of worship to anyone besides Allah. Don't ever make an equal to Allah in any of his names or qualities. If Allah is the Knower of the unseen, he is the Knower of the unseen if Allah is the Sustainer, he is the Sustainer nobody else can share exactly and precisely the same level of knowledge or the same level of quality or Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that defeats the entire verse, well, I'm your cuckoo and there is nothing like or similar unto Allah equal in any

00:24:26--> 00:24:33

single way whatsoever. This is called to heat that is called the oneness of Allah. This is called worshiping Allah and Allah alone,

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

without build, or should I say without association of any form of partner to Allah subhanho wa Taala in any of his names or qualities, nothing at all. That's Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says He created us so that we worship Him so that we find him worshiping here means to follow all the instructions and stay away from prohibitions as best as possible. And wherever we faltered, we seek Allah's forgiveness and we know that we worship him and him alone. I mean, may Allah make it easy for us your entire life in mind.

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

Supposed to be governed by the rules and regulations that Allah has stipulated. And guess what? It's only 60 years after that you're gone and so am I, and a few of you who might be over 60 Don't worry, you're living on borrowed time bonus Mashallah extra, you know, you can score a goal or two before you go to Allah. And I'm not saying this in a dooming way but you're going and so am I, Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and make it easy for us the day we go, I think it's going to be the happiest days for the believers the happiest days. We know when when the angels come to you and say, Oh, don't worry, everything's okay so proud Allah and you just smile and you and you often people

00:25:31--> 00:25:46

will say before she died, she was smiling. Yeah, because she led a good life worrying about yourself. No, come on, it's about time you started covering and dressing appropriately and fulfilling your Salah and quitting all the sudden and you will also smile inshallah, the day you live, you might even start laughing Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us?

00:25:48--> 00:26:21

So we see people and we say, Wow, did you see her face? She was so new. Mashallah, my sister your name might even be nude. But the truth is, if you don't lead your life in that way, how do you expect the nude, we say about other people, but we don't realize what they did in their lives to earn that, and we don't do that. So how are you going to get it if you want it? You don't just look, Allah showed that to you so that you can start working in a similar direction. And I remember one day someone was saying, but this lady was so so so difficult in her life. I wonder how she ended up smiling at the end. But she might have had decent deeds that you talked a lot about, she must have

00:26:21--> 00:27:03

asked forgiveness towards the end of my life, she might not have been as bad because I was the judge not you, not me. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May He grant us goodness and ease. So Allah says, I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed me. Imagine Allah saying this. And this shows you that you know religion, religion, Allah subhanho wa Taala himself, he doesn't ask you, he doesn't ask you money of clothing or food that would go to other human beings who are less privileged, who do not have much as a form of worship and as a reaching out to them because their fellow human being so your concern for the rest of the creatures of Allah shows that

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

you are close to Allah. What's my link with the poor man who came saying Ed balaka yesterday?

00:27:11--> 00:27:15

My link is Allah made me Allah made him as well. Whoever made me made him

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

so did I sway him? scoff at him? No, I didn't.

00:27:22--> 00:27:36

either. I gave him all I just said a good word and turned him away. You know, like I know I rang the bell at someone's house playing a prank yesterday and I said Ed Bulaga at the gate so the message thank you for greeting me Thank you. Thank you Now you can go

00:27:38--> 00:27:57

now to me that was that too. Maybe he had given 2030 people already and now he just was saying goodbye and later on so para la i i when i laughed at him later on and he said I really thought you were one of widows one of the guys who comes around door to door we're not encouraging people to go door to door but sometimes their desperation makes them do that. It's better than stealing if you were to ask me

00:27:59--> 00:28:35

and you know, sometimes you might want to set set aside $1 perhaps maybe 50 cents, you know, if you get a 50 cent coin, but at the same time you might want to set aside something you might want to set aside a few slices of bread I don't think it's going to cost you much a loaf of bread is about 80 cents I think to $1 and if you were to have one loaf, you can perhaps get at least 10 people with two slices of bread Mashallah a little bit of jam peanut butter or perhaps you know, anything in the center Mashallah. And some, you know, maybe juice or something else, cold water if that may be the case. You know, don't ever get to a person who's asking you for a bit of food and say you're

00:28:35--> 00:29:11

supposed to be fasting with six foster share well, Allah forgive us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and make it easy for us to fast these six fast they not easy trust me once you fasted the whole month and you know, sometimes you have a few fasts to catch up and so on. It becomes a little bit difficult to fast the six fast remember, first you make up your mistress and then inshallah you go on to the sixth of Sha one, and by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala don't have the intention of losing weight, but inshallah you may lose it, as in the process. The intention is to please Allah and the intention is for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah says,

00:29:12--> 00:29:34

indeed it is Allah who is the continual provider, the firm, possessor of strength, Allah that continue will provide Allah is the Sustainer he gives you he doesn't ask from you. So when Allah gives you 100 million for example, Zimbabwe dollars, he asks you for two and a half percent.

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

Not for himself never ever does He say Okay, you know what this is for me? No, this is actually for the cause of Allah but it's to test you to say Look, he gave you everything in the first place. You just give back so much. Imagine when someone gives you a big $100 bill and they say look for yours. Listen to this example because it's it's very good. If someone gives you $100 bill and tells you look, I don't have changed but yours is 97.5 mine

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

is two and a half. So give me as soon as you get your change. And then you just take the $100 bill and pretend like that's okay that's mine, you know? No, for every $100 Allah gives you He tells you listen, the $100 is yours but two and a half is mine meaning 97.5 is yours and the two and a half is mine. So as soon as you can you break that note and you give out for Allah because he never belonged to you in the first place. It might have came via you but that's Allah has he gave it to you in the first place. So this is a similarity of Zakah people feel guilty but I got all this gold if I'm supposed to give you two and a half percent of it every year. By the time a few years passed down, I

00:30:33--> 00:30:39

won't have any gold left. No you will because you get to a certain point known as nisab beyond which you won't have to give

00:30:40--> 00:30:47

Allah forgive us and you're lucky if your husband gives on your behalf very fortunate. Keep him please make dua for him.

00:30:50--> 00:31:28

So my mothers and sisters Mashallah Allah subhanho wa Taala says here, he is the provider he gives when you give for his cause he's going to give you more, there's a hadith which says never ever has Allah subhanho wa Taala depleted somebody's wealth because they were charitable. When you're charitable, you actually get more much more but you have to give that's it. You have to learn to give Don't be miserly, don't stick to your stuff. Like he like that's it, you know, sentimental value. sentimental value. So Pamela you've got 200 K's of clothes, sentimental value, low Akbar. That's dollar mental value because it's far more than since Allah subhanho wa Taala. Forgive us.

00:31:29--> 00:31:54

And to give it away, open your closet what you loved. Yes, you are married in that bridal suit. You never going to fit in it again. Don't worry, Mashallah, you've given birth to how many children Mashallah you can give it away you make somebody else's day Mashallah, and tell them that 10 years from now, you're not gonna fit in it, my dear. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. But you know, Allah, He I, people keep things they look at it now and again, it's inshallah one day, one day What?

00:31:55--> 00:32:29

I hope it's one day you're going to give it away, not one day, I'm going to fit in it again. Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness and good health. I mean, so my mothers and sisters, Allah is telling you he is the provider, learn to give for the sake of Allah learn to give for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. A lot of the times, it's only the excess stuff that we keep, you know, if you buy a new apparatus for your kitchen, give away the old one before you take out the new one. Or as you're taking it out, give away the old one. Don't be from among those who wants to keep No This one was a really good ones. So go ahead, give it away. Your cupboards, your closet, we have so much

00:32:29--> 00:32:44

and we continue dumping and keeping the happiest people are those who have decluttered will lie when you open your cupboard and you just see a few pairs of clothes and that's it. You are the happiest of people. And the most depressed are those who are crying for cupboard space even though they've got 50 cupboards in their homes.

00:32:46--> 00:33:22

But what happened? We put up so many cupboards here they all fall they fall does not come on. So Allah Allah, Allah forgive us declutter, declutter. Voila, here, I'm asking you to look into your cupboards and to declutter for the sake of Allah, as well as on top of that your own sanity and goodness and happiness and contentment, you will be so so happy, you know, lo Akbar. You know, I recall one day somebody donated something, okay. So they gave a piece of clothing. And it so happened that the person who was donated that piece of clothing happened to see them somewhere. Okay, so this has to happen to stop this other person and say, Oh, I just need to see what you

00:33:22--> 00:33:56

eating. It's so nice. And it's so good. And so this and so bad. And you know, and later on, I get a phone call saying, did you give this to us? It took I don't know what happened to it. I didn't even distribute it myself. I just put it where it's supposed to go in order for it to be distributed. And I think I saw someone wearing it and I almost wanted to cry Allahu Akbar. Allah forgive us. Imagine how connected we become to stuff that even after we've donated it, we still feel or they look nice. In this way, Allah forgive us, my brothers and sisters learn to give things away or like, imagine if you die and you are allowed to open your eyes for a minute and you see what happened to all your

00:33:56--> 00:34:35

stuff, you probably want to come back to it to take it back with Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us, really. So Allah says, and indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion of the punishment, like the portion of the companions, or the predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge me. Allah says, Those who have gone wrong, those who have become evil, they will taste the punishment, just like the people before them tasted the punishment when they became evil. So Allah says, Let them not impatiently urge me, I will do it. I don't need to be told when I know when I'm going to punish people. When Allah knows that you are going to turn he won't punish you. But when he knows you're

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

not going to turn, he probably will.

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

Then he says,

00:34:41--> 00:34:47

and woe to those who have disbelieved from their day, which they have promised.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Which means the day of judgment and the hereafter there are people who have disbelieved in all this so woe to them destruction to them, they're going to be really, really sad. The day they see that it was all the truth.

00:35:03--> 00:35:09

This is a severe warning for those who don't believe in the hereafter for those who think that we're just here to enjoy and amuse ourselves. That's it.

00:35:11--> 00:35:15

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. Okay, we now move on to the next one.

00:35:16--> 00:35:53

And I just want to warn myself and yourselves that the opening verses are very, very scary, very, very scary when I say scary, I mean, they bring about reality of hellfire. So let's listen to them. A lot, take several oaths now, taking an oath for us, we're only allowed to take an oath with Allah, his names or his qualities, nothing else. We never allowed to swear an oath by people, by creatures and so on only Allah, his names and qualities, that's it. When can holiday Villa, whoever wants to take an oath should only take an oath In the name of Allah, Allah, which means he's an Indian qualities. But Allah Himself takes an oath with a lot of things that he has created because He is

00:35:53--> 00:36:20

the Creator, in order to draw our attention to the greatness of certain items and the seriousness of it, he takes an oath by those items, and he's the only one allowed to take such an oath. So Allah says, What tool indeed I swear by the amount of tourists the amount, you know, the amount of Prophet Moses May peace be upon him, what kitabi must do, and I swear, or an oath by a book, inscribed keytab in Moscow, the book inscribed here,

00:36:21--> 00:37:04

as in the preserve tablet, or the Quran, Allah says, I swear by a tool, and I swear by the book that has been inscribed, in parchment spread open, this is a description of the book, right? And I swear by the frequented house, the frequented house, what is it? The house of worship for the angels is known as a battle Mahmoud in the seventh heaven, comparable to the Kaaba on Earth. They are also making tawaf they're very, very high seven heavens above, it's called a beta Mahmood, which means the frequented house. It's the place of worship of the angels, like unto the Kaaba, so we engage in tawaf here, they engage in tawaf up there, Subhan Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala swears an oath

00:37:04--> 00:37:26

by the frequented house and by the ceiling, raised high ally swearing an oath by the ceiling raised high, referring to the heavens, the skies and so on. Allah says, and by the sea, set on fire, what is the sea set on fire on the Day of Resurrection, the sea will be on fire, imagine water will be on fire,

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

Allahu Akbar.

00:37:33--> 00:37:42

Then Allah says, After he speaks about the sea being set on fire and him swearing an oath by it, indeed, the punishment of your Lord will definitely occur.

00:37:44--> 00:37:49

The severe punishment of your Lord will definitely occur in

00:37:51--> 00:37:56

big gala appear, indeed, the punishment of your Lord will definitely occur.

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

Murder whom in dafair,

00:38:02--> 00:38:45

there is no preventer of that punishment, nobody will be able to prevent the punishment of your load. On the day, the heaven will sway with circular motion, you know, everything is going to go according to ask a wall, but it's the creation of Allah following the instruction of Allah, it will stop and it will do whatever Allah wants it to do. So Allah says, The heavens will sway with circular motion, and the mountains will pass on departing, the mountains will actually be completely destroyed and they will move like clouds, they will be, you know, they say at a certain boiling point, everything boils everything actually becomes from solid to liquid from liquid to gas, right.

00:38:46--> 00:39:12

But the boiling point is different, some 100 degrees, some 1000, some a million and so on. It depends. So So basically, whatever the boiling point is, it's going to be completely destroyed, and it's going to move like smoke in the skies, like clouds, Allah says, that's the mountains, the mountains will be destroyed. So here Allah says, the mountains will pass on departing, then Whoa, on that Day to the deniers, those who used to deny the day they will be thoroughly punished.

00:39:15--> 00:39:37

Those who are in empty discourse amusing themselves, those who are just talking for nothing just amusing themselves past time doing things that don't help them and benefit them in any way. Those who've lost focus of the day they're going to die. Those who've lost focus of Allah, those who have lost focus of their Creator and the fact that they are only here for a short period of time, those who've lost focus of Heaven and Hell, those who've lost focus of the final day and accountability.

00:39:40--> 00:39:52

What Allah says, the day they are thrust towards the fire of hell with a violent thrust, its angels will say, this is the fire which you used to deny a taste it

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

and they used to say it was magic and they use

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

To say he was a madman. So the question comes then, is this magic? Or do you not see? You know, people used to say this is magic, but then you start feeling that is burning. What type of magic is that? Allah says, Is this magic? This is the fire you used to deny. Now is this magic. You used to call him a magician, and you used to say whatever he's brought about his magic, is this magic?

00:40:22--> 00:40:23

Or do you not see?

00:40:24--> 00:40:37

So Allah says, they will be told Enter to burn during, then be patient or impatient. It is all the same for you. You are only being recompensed for the evil deeds that you used to do a

00:40:40--> 00:40:47

lot of Akbar. Now my brothers and sisters don't we feel so so frightened?

00:40:49--> 00:41:25

Allah never ever do that to us. But you know what? He is the Most Merciful. He is the owner of mercy. And this is the reason why I continued reading the verses and continued. And some of you might have thought, why did he start surah? Two Two already. And I started it and I continued, and I didn't stop until I got two verses because I know the system of Allah in the Quran whenever he speaks of punishment, and he speaks about burning it is and how severe it is and how people will be thrown into Hellfire and cast into it and nobody will be able to help them. He then says, well, the believers will get paradise and the believers will be in beautiful springs, and they will enjoy and

00:41:25--> 00:42:06

we will forgive their shortcomings because they worship none but us. They tried, they might have had their weaknesses, but they tried to come close to us, they sought forgiveness and they they were decent people who continued coming closer and closer to us. So as a result, we will give them gardens of Paradise with beautiful greenery and beautiful scenery. And that which has rivers flowing of fruit juice and milk and honey and water and so many other things, whatever they desire will be there, they will be the happiest of the lot. So that's what Allah says in a nutshell, verse number 17. Indeed the righteous will be in gardens and pleasure. They will be pleased They will be happy,

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

they will be enjoying

00:42:09--> 00:42:45

enjoying what their Lord has given them and their Lord protected them from the punishment of hellfire. Allah protect us all from the punishment of hellfire. You know something that brings about a lot of comfort for me in person, and I'm sure it would for all of us, is you know, the magicians who were trying their tricks with the Prophet Moses May peace be upon him, and they asked a pharaoh for some money if they want that particular magical race. They put out their ropes and sticks and they turned into snakes and serpents and when Musa alayhis salaam the Prophet Moses made peace be upon him, put out his stick, it became a big snake, and it ate up everything that they had made. So

00:42:45--> 00:43:00

as a result, they prostrated to Allah one prostration later on they were harmed, executed and persecuted, persecuted and executed by the pharaoh one prostration. And Allah forgive them and granted them paradise. How many times have you frustrated for Allah and I,

00:43:01--> 00:43:38

more than once I've actually lost count. So if Allah accepted one frustration from them and gave them paradise as a result, I hope and pray that he can accept from us at least one and also grant us paradise. The only condition is don't associate partners with Allah between now and then never, ever. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us render acts of worship for him and to Him alone. And these acts of worship need to be in conformity with what Mohammed Salah Salem has brought and taught. I mean, and Allah says, enjoying that, enjoying what the Lord has given them and the Lord protected them from the punishment of Hellfire, eat and drink in satisfaction for what you used to do. They

00:43:38--> 00:43:44

will be reclining on thrones lined up and will marry and we will marry them

00:43:45--> 00:44:18

to the women with beautiful eyes You're referring to the whole of gentlemen starting with your own spouse Mashallah, Mashallah. So you have your, your spouse will be exactly in accordance to your liking. And this is both male and female. If you have a husband Mashallah he will be to the shape, the size, the complexion, the thinking the ability, the hair, the nose, the mouth and the feet everything will be exactly as you want Mashallah, even the way he talks and walks and absolutely everything you'll be so proud of this guy whoo Mashallah, you know,

00:44:19--> 00:44:54

and you won't want to replace him at all, Mashallah, that's why I said Subhana Allah hamdulillah people say, Well, I be with him in heaven. Oh, that's gonna be held. But what we do know is that he will be exactly as you want, and you will be exactly as he wants. And guess what's the unique thing is if you wanted to look something and he wanted you to look something to him, you will look like something unto yourself, you will look like something else. Mashallah about a color. So basically, it's mind boggling. I always say, just get there. And you know what, you will be pleasantly surprised. Just get there. But in order to get a start dressing properly, start reading your Salah,

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

stop associating partners with Allah, start paying up your soccer, you know, learn to do things for the sake of Allah and so on. We spoke

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

about so many things Mashallah we need to start heading in that direction and say Oh Allah grant me gentleman's and when you get this panela you will be the happiest person ever, ever, ever. Now my current agenda 45 minutes are up my mothers and sisters we started off a little bit late today. So inshallah we stopped at that particular verse was Allahu wa salam, O Allah and Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed ignition La La Land
