00:00:11--> 00:00:55

kulu salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Allah Allah He was happy to join my brothers and sisters. Allah says in Surah to know in order to achieve mercy, you should establish your prayer, you should give from what Allah has given you a chemo salata wa to Zika, and you should follow the messenger. And if you do these three things, you will achieve the mercy of Allah. If we analyze these three things, it's quite simple. The first one is dedicated to your relationship with Allah. The second one is dedicated both to your relationship with Allah as well as your relationship with the other human beings whom you're going

00:00:55--> 00:01:36

to be charitable towards are to Zakah and the third one, to follow the messenger to follow the entire lifestyle, your own lifestyle, if you are to ensure that all this is in order. Allah says, you will have Rama you will have mercy. Listen to this beautiful verse, verse number 56 of surah to move what akima sala de la czaka out the old Rasul Allah, Allah como todo hum and establish your prayer and give charities and follow the messenger in order that you achieve mercy and you and I know that contentment is indeed part of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:38--> 00:02:23

May Allah grant us goodness and contentment we move on to sudo tool for Han Solo to four Khan is an amazing surah in it, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of many factors, the ability and the capacity to distinguish between right and wrong. The Quran is called the criterion. It tells us what's right and what's wrong. And at the same time when we're in good company and when we are trying to obey Allah and Allah instructions, we will definitely be able to distinguish between right and wrong, good and bad and so on. So my brothers, my sisters, listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the importance of having good company and companionship. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:23--> 00:02:30

says about the regret of those who don't have good company in this world. Why oh my god don't volume while I

00:02:33--> 00:02:45

have to Morrow Sunni Sabina de la, la eternium, toughie, funan and honey La, la caja albani and even any victory bar that is

any work.

00:02:50--> 00:02:50

In

00:02:51--> 00:03:31

any Hakuna. Allah says on that day, the oppressor or the wrongdoer will actually be eating his hands. Why didn't I choose the path of the messenger? Why did I have such and such a person as a friend of mine, he actually led me astray, he took me away from the path of the messenger and Subhanallah there will be lots and lots of regret on that day. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed, the devil is an outright enemy. You need to know that sometimes the devil uses people who are close to you, to deviate you. Watch who your friends are, they will determine your level of contentment.

00:03:32--> 00:04:13

That was verse number 27, and 28 of Surah Al Furqan. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is indeed guiding us in such a beautiful way. My brothers and sisters, your circle of friends, makes you or breaks you. It's up to you to decide what you'd like. Make sure you have friends who are better in values and morals than you in their relationship with their maker, then you may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant His goodness. And if you are a person whom others look up to, and they are honored to have you as a friend, make sure that you are having a good impact upon them, and they are not having a bad impact upon you. In this way you will be able to achieve contentment. I want to move on to

00:04:13--> 00:04:30

verses within Serato for can that still speak about good people? Who are the blessed? Who are the worshipers of the Most Merciful? In Salatu Furqan Allah speaks about them. Allah starts off verse number 63 right up to the end of the surah by saying

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

what a bad man 11am Chanel outwardly how now

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

either sababa hormonal jahai known upon who salah and indeed the worshipers of the Most Merciful are those who walk on earth with humility. The first quality that Allah makes mention of those who walk with a calmness with a contentment with him.

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

humility, with happiness with joy without haughtiness or pride, they are the worshipers of the Most Merciful. If you worship Allah, you are focused upon the pleasure of Allah, then the material items of this world mean nothing to you, you have them and hamdulillah you don't have them still Alhamdulillah that is Allah. So Allah speaks about the second quality. He says, when the ignorant addressed them, they just say peace and they continue. They don't hit them, they don't abuse them. They don't hurl any bad words at them. They're just peace and they walk away, I greet you, and I'm gone. Why I don't want to engage in something futile with you, or something harmful. You're a person

00:05:46--> 00:06:27

who perhaps may not be having the values and the morals that I stand for peace, goodbye, I will pray for you. But I'm not going to waste my time. Unless I can help you. If I can help you, then I will sit with you and try and help you. That is a higher level, the level of power, the level of calling people towards goodness, but it's not everyone's cup of tea because we know that calling people towards Allah is a duty, but the type of people you call out or you call towards Allah subhanho wa Taala differs depending on your ability and capacity and what Allah has given you. So remember that sometimes you just have to walk away, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us ease. Then Allah says

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

they spend their nights in prayer. How many of us spend our nights in prayer?

00:06:33--> 00:06:54

It's important for us to do this. How many of us even fulfill the night prayer of Asia and fudger? Let alone that which is voluntary, such as the head Jude and the nephila. May Allah make it easy for every one of us. Allah says the good ones are those who pray to Allah, they call out to Allah, Oh Allah, protect us, divert from us the punishment of hellfire.

00:06:56--> 00:07:36

There are those whom when they spend, they know how to spend they are not miserly, and they don't engage in extravagance, but rather they choose a middle path. There are those who do not call out to any deities besides Allah, who do not call out to anyone or anything besides Allah. And they are the ones who do not commit murder. Subhana Allah, they do not commit murder and adultery. And if they were to commit that adultery, they turn back to Allah. They seek the forgiveness of Allah, wherever they have sinned. Remember, committing murder is something that is heinous. It is unforgivable, unacceptable. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

that which is

00:07:39--> 00:08:18

in association of partnership with Allah in worship is the only sin that if a person were to die, without seeking the forgiveness of they would not achieve the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says anything else we will forgive you for? But when it comes to murder, you need the forgiveness of the one you've made it Subhana Allah, how are you going to achieve that? Well, we're going to have to take the battle to the hereafter. And this is why we say here in this world, no one can guarantee you that you've been forgiven for that particular murder until the person you've met, it forgives you, but Allah gives you hope. Keep on doing good. keep on trying, may Allah make it

00:08:18--> 00:09:02

easy for every one of us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the good ones are those the worshipers of the Most Merciful of those who don't bear false witness. We spoke about that. Don't bear false witness. people accuse others, they deceive them, they cheat them, they even take them to court and lie about it. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us. How do you want contentment when you are lying? deceiving? How do you want happiness? When you have accused people falsely? When you have jailed people falsely? How what type of faith do you have in Allah subhanho wa Taala? May Allah protect us all? May Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us ease and success I mean,

00:09:03--> 00:09:43

then a very important quality that Allah makes mention of he says, they are those, the worshipers of the Most Merciful of those whom when they are reminded of the verses of Allah, they don't feel bad. They don't turn a blind eye and they don't turn a deaf ear. They actually listen and look and they take heed, they're happy that someone corrected them. How many of us are happy when others correct us? How many of us are happy when our own parents correct us? Or how many parents would be happy when their children correct them? Remind them of Allah? Many people become angry. They become very angry if you say my brother, please let's go to the masjid you know prayer is very important. They

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

say keep quiet, Worry about yourself. Go and do your own thing. Why are you talking to me? Those type of answers will not bring about contentment. At least you say does a caliphate thank you for the reminder. If you are happy at this reminder, you will achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

These honorable people are the ones who call out to Allah regarding their children. Oh Allah, bless me, Grant me with offspring who will be the coolness of my eyes. Oh Allah make me from among the leaders of the righteous. Grant me goodness Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Listen to this last verse

00:10:22--> 00:10:30

when Medina kuno nara bana habarana mean as wa Gina, via Tina quwata

00:10:33--> 00:10:59

tokina eema. Allah says they are the ones who call out to Allah, Oh Allah bestow upon us from our wives from our children, those who will be the coolness of our eyes and make us leaders of the righteous. When you have all these qualities in you, not only will you achieve the contentment of this world, but Allah says, Allah, he can use his own Alberto phetchaburi mouse.

00:11:01--> 00:11:50

Kona he had a he was Allah. Allah says they are the ones who will be granted a loofah in Paradise, and horrify is a special abode in general, not just any ordinary place, but a place for those who were the worshipers of the Most Merciful. They always concentrated on the mercy of Allah. That's why they are called the bad man, the worshipers of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all contentment and happiness. This is a beautiful Surah Surah Al Furqan. And remember Allah subhanho wa Taala sends these verses to remind us, I asked you, my brothers and sisters to pick up the Quran today. And to look at the last verses of Surah Al Furqan, starting from

00:11:50--> 00:12:16

verse number 63 and ask yourself, do I have these qualities in me? If not, please do something to instill and bring about those qualities within you. And if you do have these qualities, work to improve them. You will definitely be a very, very contented person. And you will be even more content on the Day of Judgment of Guru Kali hada or sallallahu wasallam albaraka ala nabina Maha levena
