Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi wa kafa wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka Abadi, Medina, Safa, All praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us this evening. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those who have listened to the words of the Quran. For indeed not only is it a reward for reading every letter, but even for listening to every single letter. And this is why it is important that the recitation is as clear as possible, so that we listen to every letter from where it is pronounced, so that we receive a reward for having listened to each letter. I mean,
honor the beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, we have a major problem. And that major problem is fighting the devil. We all know that shavon was also a creature and is also a creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala created by the Creator Himself. And we all do know that it is part of a larger divine plan to have made us from amongst those who have to face and fight shape on a daily basis. And for this reason, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the history from the very beginning, where it started and what happened. And Allah subhanho wa Taala informs us in detail because he does not want us to be caught from amongst those whom shavon in traps. So we ask Allah
subhanho wa Taala to protect us shavon or the devil or Iblees, who is the head of all of them has an entire army, all of them are from the jinn kind and all of them, meaning the root of them is from the gene kind. We will come to verses in the Quran that prove to us that they are also devils from mankind. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to protect us all.
But the root of the devils Allah subhanho wa Taala says the reason why he became known as shavonne was because he refused to Prostrate to Adam alayhi salatu was Salam. He committed a sin. He was arrogant and he thought he was better. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has made mention of this history in the Quran, in more than six places where Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah, WA if
Allah is Julie de Mufasa Jadoo Illa Ebenezer Abba was Baraka and I mean Anika Vereen. Remember when we told the angels to frustrate to Adam, they all frustrated besides the beliefs and the beliefs, he refused, and he was haughty and arrogant, he was proud, he thought he was better. And he was from amongst those who disbelieved as a result, and not only disbelieved, but even from the from amongst those who were ungrateful. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, never to make us from those who are ungrateful. The first lesson we learn from this is, pride is one of the crimes of the devil himself, arrogance and haughtiness is a crime of the devil himself. It's a major major sin, we ask Allah
subhanho wa Taala to protect us from that sin. And we also learn that that will result in not acknowledging the level or the status giving to given to others by Allah subhanho wa Taala. When Allah has favored someone with wealth, when Allah has favored them with children, when Allah has favored them with knowledge, when Allah has favored them with any form of goodness, we should acknowledge the fact that Allah has favored them above us if that is the case, and we should not deny the gifts of Allah. Because if we deny the gifts of Allah, that is only the first step. Thereafter, our heart begins to dislike the individual because we become jealous, and thereafter
that jealousy develops into a hatred, and that hatred develops into an enmity and that enmity then results in us working actively against that individual losing focus on our own path and shifting to somebody else's path. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So the root of the crime is actually the pride or the in gratitude or the fact that a person denies the gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given others may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all from his gifts, and May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us in every single way. So Allah subhanho wa Taala after mentioning the detail and the history of the beliefs, and how he refused to prostrate and what he said, You know, when he was
asked to prostrate he actually said and Allah subhanho wa Taala records this in the Quran.
min mukalla ohtani min
bada bada boom, you clean
I am better than him. You have created me from fire and you have created him from dust or from soil. So Allah subhanho wa Taala warned him again, spoke to him directly. But that arrogance is such that even if all the clear cut signs come to an individual, he won't want to listen to what is right, he will always transgress the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah is warning us thereafter. Saying that shavon asked for some time, he asked for in spite of
me lie to me.
Allah give me some time, up to the Day of Resurrection, then I will show you something. I will show you that these creatures that you are telling me to prostrate to, they will not worship You, they will worship me or they will worship one another. They will listen to me they will obey my instruction. You watch you wait, you see. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then declared to Adam alayhis salam, that look, this individual is your enemy, your enemy, he has great enmity against you. He hates you, he dislikes you. Really Be careful, be watchful, make sure that he does not lead you astray. Allah subhanho wa Taala told them directly and clearly, but still, it was Allah subhanho wa
Taala his plan.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala his plan was that this shavon this he believes the devil had actually come to Adam alayhis Salatu was Salam and convinced him to engage in red one acts which was prohibited for him What was that? the eating of a certain fruits, Allah says, Do not do this. Now one might ask that if Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to be worshipped? Why did he create things that he said abstain from? That's a question. He should have rather just not made those things you have folk, for example, Allah tells us do not consume folk do not consume alcohol. Why did he make it in the first place? That's a question. And it's not a bad question. It's a good question. But the
answer of it is obviously not with everybody, only some will be able to explain. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to be worshipped. That's the reason he created myself and yourselves and all creatures, or mahakala.
In an era boo, I have created mankind and jinkins only for one purpose, to worship me. the worship of Allah is divided into two,
to engage in the commands or to fulfill the commands and to abstain from prohibitions. A person's spirituality is developed in a different way, when they engage in good deeds.
They become Mashallah pious, and they have spirituality and so on. But there is a different aspect of an individual's spirituality that is enhanced when they abstain from prohibitions. So that's why in order to have the complete spiritual upliftment of an individual, he needs to engage in two things, one is to do that which is commanded and the other is to abstain from that which is prohibited. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala has a balance. So he has made he has issued commands to test us will we do them? Then he has issued prohibitions to test us will we abstain for his sake, Subhana Allah, that is the complete system of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for that reason,
he has alcohol he has gambling, he has, for example, created the pig and what have you, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all May he make us from those who can abstain. So Adam alayhis salam was in heaven and he was told that you can do whatever you'd like here, or Allah taco raba the shadow Raja takuna Nina hos evening, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Do not approach this three list you will be from amongst those who have oppressed or those who are the losers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all protection may not mean from amongst those who have oppressed.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter tells us all Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us all
in nice shape on Allah Kumar
his bamboo Leah Norman, is he? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Fatiha that indeed, shavon is your enemy. So consider him an enemy. Consider him an enemy do not just say okay, he's an enemy, an enemy that's not enough. regard him as an enemy. When you have an enemy. You are careful, you are watchful, you prepare you protect yourself you make sure today when we have enemies or little thieves who come to our houses, Mashallah we have alarms. We have
have backup systems. We have big companies that that will react instantly when someone wants to even cross our road a few too many times May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. What about shavon crossing our life crossing our path on a daily basis Not only that, we invite him to our house but Allah protect us. And we asked him to join us for supper. May Allah grant us all protection. It is happening really the way we talk the way we speak. Sometimes we are in trapped by the devil, and we don't realize and that's why sometimes we don't have happiness in our lives. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us that look shavon promised something shaitan told Allah subhanho wa Taala and
this is mentioned in Surah two RF from Allah
benei ie Momin, Calvi. mwen Imani
Shama Eenie, mala g dx o home shaqiri, I will come to them, and I will lead them astray, I will wait in ambush for them from in front of them from behind them from the right side of them from the left side of them. And you will notice that these creatures whom you asked me to frustrate you, they will not be thankful to you they will be ungrateful and they will rather follow me and they will rather not follow you may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.
So in Surah Nisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of another promise of shape and shape and says, Well done,
I will definitely lead them astray. I'm going to show you he's promising the Creator, I'm going to lead them astray, or Allah omen.
And I will arouse their desires to do bad, I will arouse their desires when something is prohibited for them, I'll show you how I'll beautify for them. And when something is allowed, or something is a command for them, I'll show you how I make them lazy for it. May Allah Subhana, Allah protect us all.
and I shall instruct them, the devil says, You watch the instruction won't be yours, it will be mine. value but
Or, you watch and see, I will show them and I will command them to slip the ears of the cattle meaning to be cruel to the animals also.
As well as to change the creation of yours Yala. What that means is they won't be happy with what you've given them. They won't want it. You know, this is why in Islam, there are certain things prohibited. A man has a face, be happy with that face. A female has a face be happy with what Allah has granted you where your noses, your eyes and so on. If you are not happy with what Allah has given you a lie that's a disaster. That is ungratefulness in gratitude, why do you compete with the others? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us? So then a person has plastic surgery and what have you, all that will result in regrets? Obviously, if someone's face is completely deformed after
having been involved in an accident, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us, there is a chance and the possibility that that particular individual may be going through some form of surgery in order to rectify what was wrong. But it is not allowed to go out and beautify yourself through various types of surgery and what have you. And this is why the hair that Allah has given us, we must be happy with it. It is prohibited for men and women to add extensions to their hay, which does not belong to them. These extensions that are sewn onto the hay is equivalent to telling the Creator, I'm not happy with what you gave me. I'll show you I can come up with something better. Allahu
Akbar. What a dangerous statement.
We want to add to what Allah has given us, Allah gave us here. So what if it's very little? So what if you are bold? What's wrong? I think it's actually quite good. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us all protection. It's not a bad thing. Remember, one man's meat is another man's poison. Maybe that's not the correct saying here. But what is what is meant is that what someone doesn't like someone else will like, if you are big in size, don't worry. Remember the story of the king. Don't get too worried. Allahu Akbar. It is a duty of us that we realize some people will admire you as you are. Allah has created people to like you with a dark complexion or with a light complexion. It's got
nothing to do with what Allah has given you to say I'm not happy with it. Alhamdulillah be thankful because Shea thorns plan one of his plans and we need to know his plan is to make us ungrateful for what we've been given by the Creator Himself. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us protection. Then Allah says, so don't follow the paths of shavon shavon has many paths. Allah has one path as Siracusa team.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has one path, and shavon has many paths listed
Do what Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah two new
levena Manohla who was on oh you who believe do not follow the path of shavonne and Allah subhanho wa Taala says the same thing in Surah Al Baqarah. Wha, wha W. Tisha Pani in hula Komodo, Moby don't follow the paths of shape and or the footsteps of shape and rather, because indeed, he is an outright clear open enemy of yours. We have told you what he did. Now you better take heed Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all protection. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah, to know me, who Tisha and Eva in morobe, in fact,
God, whoever follows the path or the footsteps of shaper, there is a sign to actually pick them up. They are those who promote immorality, who promote indecency who promote evil, Allah subhanho wa Taala must definitely make us from those who can recognize the evil and who can stay away from it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says those who follow the footsteps of shaytan They are the ones who promote immorality, promiscuity and evil. They promote adultery, they promote all sorts of sins. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us protection. In fact, in another verse in Surah, Kabuto Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in a sala de tenha. And in fact,
if you fulfill your Salah correctly, automatically, it will keep you away from immorality and evil, the same thing that shavon instructs and commands. So if we would like to come out of the clutches of shavon, we need to fulfill our Salah. We need to engage in our prayer, the five daily prayers plugin with your own creator and you will see how close you become to him. It will make you conscious of yourself and your deeds. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then speaks about how
shavon promises he promises the people
and he makes them look forward to evil. Yeah, Ito more human me him.
He gives them all sorts of promises, and he beautifies all the evil lusts and desires of the individual, promising them Don't worry, Allah is Forgiving, Allah will forgive you relax, don't even worry. Go and commit the sin. No, no, no, it's very beautiful. It's looking in front of you. It's in front of your eyes. No one's going to know about it. All that is Satan's plan. Once you commit the sin,
what a fan does, he runs away, he quickly goes away. Because now you are in the shackles of his you've already gone forward. Now you worry who seen me what happened? You look behind you. You don't have any peace. When you sleep in your phone rings, you quickly run to it. You want this because of the sin you committed? May Allah protect the soul. So a person actually gets caught in the tangle and gets caught in the shackles of shape and because of the sins that shape and promotes then he runs away. And we will come to that. Later on in tonight's topic how shaitan runs away. He is a very, very big deceiver. And do you know what he says? He actually comes out and swears an oath to
say I am genuinely really I've got a solid feeling for you. And sometimes this devil comes in the form of your best friend. May Allah protect us. Sometimes the devil comes using the mouth of really someone who's very close to you. Shaytan is very sharp. He's very intelligent. Allah subhanho wa Taala says
in Surah Allah Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he sees you from a place where you don't see him.
Amazing. Listen to the verse. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah two era that chiffon sees you from a place you do not see him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in
me no mean Hi.
In Nashua, Polina oni
de la Vina Allah,
Allah says him and his whole army, they watch you from a place that you cannot see them. So they come to you in disguise. They were kicked out of heaven, they still happened to transgress, by infiltrating in one way or another and getting to Adam alayhis salatu salam and calling him May Allah protect us,
Allahu Akbar, something very important that we need to know if a person has fallen prey to chiffon. The thing he needs to do very quickly is to admit his sin and to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala to admit that shavon has got hold of me Allah Take me out of the clutches of shaitan but not
Not only that, we need to make a firm intention and we need to walk in the right direction, leave the path, the path of shape and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us all. So shavon promises people and he swears to them. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Allah wa Kasama Houma in Nila kumala mina Nelson Fadel Allahumma Bebo he swore, and he really took these people telling them Adam and hawala salam, that Do you know what I promise you I am genuine, this tree that Allah told you not to eat from, he only told you not to eat from it because if you eat it, you live forever.
If you eat it, you live forever. And if you eat from it, you will have kingdom and wealth that will never diminish, it will never ever be extinguished, it will never finish.
So naturally, if someone told you look, come here, I'll show you how to live longer. People will go and listen Subhanallah if they tell you drink this, and you really it will improve your health because it will give you so many more years. The first part of their statement might be correct. You have green tea, for example, it might be more healthy than the normal milk tea that seems to be safe. But it's not going to increase your life not at all. It might enhance the quality of your life by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala but it will never give you one minute more. So if anyone thinks that it's going to prolong their lives, they are wrong. It's Allah who's decided your
life is going to end there. And this is why to go to the devil's is absolutely unacceptable. One of the items which shape on encourages and promotes and teaches is black magic. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that in Surah Al Baqarah. He says on cavora Suleiman Humala King mushiya pinaka
moonen SSC Suleiman alayhis salam did not teach people magic, he was not a disbeliever. But shavon was a disbeliever. He is the one who taught everybody magic, and who taught them black magic and who taught him all sorts of debt. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. This is why whoever engages in black magic has lost the man with immediate effects. May Allah protect us all. Not only that, whoever goes to a magician, they've also lost a man and whoever goes to a fortune teller, whether you call him a sangoma or whether you call him an angle, or whether you call him a witch doctor, or whether you call him a spirit medium or what have you. If anyone goes to a fortune teller who is
going to tell him something of the future or who is going to help them in that direction predestiny supposedly, they have lost the Eman immediately. Listen to the narration.
Men are often oka Heenan, Casa de Houma. Kapha Bhima Allah Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who ever goes to a fortune teller, or a witch doctor, and believes what they have to say they have disbelieved in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the whole mission of Islam, Allahu Akbar. So therefore it is our duty if anyone has been to any of these people, repent, repeat your Shahada. You need to read your Shahada and enter re enter into the fold of Islam it is a serious matter. Be happy with what Allah has given you and never ever go out hunting for shape and this is why I said sometimes what we do we go in invite shape onto our homes. May Allah protect us all. So
Allah subhanho wa Taala and speaks about how dangerous he is how deceiving he is. And Allah warns all of us in Surah man, Allah subhanho wa Taala says falletta
Nakamoto hyah dunia Don't let this worldly life deceive you. Oh man, it's a short life.
And the big deceiver, the big cheater Don't let him cheat you the big thief. Don't let him steal from you. Who is the big deceiver? shaitan Allah says Don't let the one who is the professional of all deceivers deceive you. And this is why deception is also one of the qualities one of the qualities of shavon the Hadith says manga Shana felice, Amina, whoever deceives us is not from amongst us, they have exited the fold May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us from deception. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then warns us after he tells us what happened to Adam, and how we're in Jenna May peace be upon them. Allah says in Surah raffia Bonnie demola I have tienen como shame on
Children of Adam. Don't let chiffon come and test you. And don't let him do what he did to your forefathers to you.
mean algen Don't let him do what he did to your forefathers removing them from the goodness they were in. He removed them from Paradise from heaven. With us, the goodness we are in we will be removed from it.
If we follow the footsteps of shape one, really a person has a happy life. He's happily married. The minute he starts committing adultery, he is following the footsteps of shape and he's now tied down by shaitan. He will lose possibly his children, possibly a good spouse, a good wife, or if it is a female, a good husband, who was sinless who was dedicated to him or her. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. Why? Because they fell into the trap of shaman and not realizing the only way to come back to happiness and contentment is to leave here and now the sin that we are involved in May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all abstention from sin. May He grant us the ability to turn to
him as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Look at what he did to Adam and hawala him as salaam, he displayed their shame, Allahu Akbar, he made them shameful of what they did. And this is why one of the primary issues when it comes to shapen and the devil
is that when you follow his path, when you sin, the first thing that happens you become shameless. You know, when Adam alayhis salam and hawala Salam when they sinned, in general, the first thing that happened, their private parts appeared, though they were covered before that, they appeared and it resulted in them drawing from the leaves of gender in order to cover their private parts. They felt the shame and they did not have to do that in the past. And the move Assyrian have made mentioned some of them have spoken about how when a person commits a sin, the first thing it does, it makes them shameless. And it makes them from amongst those who promote May Allah subhanho wa
Taala protect us in morality unless they turn and repent. And look at what Adam alayhis salam said immediately. Immediately after committing the sin he realized he was wrong. And he says Rob bana vollum Susana townville Anna, what ohana Lana coonan Amina false eating seating. Oh, we have oppressed ourselves really. And if you are not going to forgive us, you are not going to have mercy on us, then indeed we will be from amongst the losers. So yeah, Allah forgive us and Allah says we forgive him straight away. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about those who take chiffon as their protector and those who befriend chiffon and those who allow themselves to have a link with the
devil. Obviously, that devil would come to us either in the form of a whisper from the devil or in the form of a human being. Whenever there is a person with bad qualities, remember, you should not befriend them stay far away from them, no matter what, because shavonne will come to you through them. And this is how we get entrapped by shavonne he uses evil people to come to us and to befriend us and to be in our circle so that we become evil with them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
this issue in Surah. Allah Allah says fairy, pinhead wa fairy con la Mala Mala, there are two groups, groups that a group that Allah has guided and the group that is deserving of misguidance Why would a group be deserving of misguidance Allah says in
They have indeed taken the devil as protectors besides Allah, and they feel that they are rightly guided yet they are astray. How can we take the devil as a protector besides Allah? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the devil. So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter tells us that there are people who think they are guided yet they are in this guidance because that's what shavon does. chiffon Miss guides us to the degree that we think we are doing a good job, but we are not one of the one of the negative effects of shavon is that a person who is in the clutches of the devil will always think they are doing right, yet they will be doing wrong and they will be engaged in
evil. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how shavon beautifies the evil and in many places in the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says was a an Allah Masha. Allah home chiffon has beautified for them shaytan has made fair seeming for them their evil deeds shavon has made
fair seeming for them. They're evil beads, which means he beautified the evil bees. So a person comes
and he'll argue with you telling you no this is right. This is definitely right. There's nothing wrong with this. Come on. What am I
Doing It's not wrong, how can it be wrong? And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Look, I am calling you towards goodness The devil is calling you towards evil. If there is any rule that I have laid Allah tells us, then you should know that it is a rule to enhance yourself in every single way. success lies in following Allah subhanho wa Taala following the messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala success will not come to us just by us sitting down and making a prayer for success. We need to make an effort as well. A huge effort is required to adopt the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as abstain from prohibitions. This brings us to the next point. What Schaefer does when he wants to
entrap the Muslims, he makes them and I think a lot of us are guilty of this chiffon makes us feel that we only have to fulfill the commands and he makes us forget about abstaining from prohibitions. So you find a man Mashallah with a long beard with a huge turban, reading Salah in the first stuff or in the second stuff always there. Mashallah promoting good telling everyone to read Salah going to everybody's home, inviting them towards Islam, but when it comes to backbiting, he's not worried. It's like not even a sin. He says, Look, I'm reading my Salah, I'm giving my Zakah I've been for Hodge, I fast in the month of Ramadan. I've said my Shahada. Now what am I worried about? That man
is in the clutches of chiffon May Allah protect us and it would be me or you if we do the same. Remember, in the same way that they are commands, they are provisions, what shavon does, he will then tell you know, I am already dressed properly. So I am a better Muslim Allahu Akbar. There are some people who might not be dressed like you, but they might be even better Muslims, they might have a deed that Allah loves more than any of the deeds that I have done or you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. This is why when a person belittles the sin of backbiting of deceiving of cheating or slander, of lying, of causing disunity, and so on. These are major major sins when
people belittle them and don't, don't regard them as big sins and people continue engaging in them, then it is time for them to understand and realize that they are in the clutches of the devil. If they do not turn as soon as possible Allah it will result in that destruction and regret in the hereafter.
And this is why in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a different wording. Allah says it is 10 times more difficult to protect a good deed after it is done.
It is 10 times more difficult to read Salah is the easiest thing you could do. I can read Salah now we can we've just stood Mashallah for so long for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether or not that Salah is going to remain with me up to the Day of Judgment is a different issue altogether. Because as soon as I go out of here, if I beg by someone, there is a chance that my Salah will now go to them, because I need to pay for that. It's a fine. And if I have deceived someone, my soccer goes to them. If I slammed it, someone accused them of adultery, which is one of the biggest crimes my Hajj goes to them. When I come on the day of karma, there'll be nothing left. So we belittle this
issue. That's why the Quran says my
sanity fella who
Allah says, Whoever comes on the day of the AMA with a good deed, we will multiply it for them by 10.
But whoever does a good deed is it immediately multiplied? No, it's not immediately multiplied, according to the Tafseer of this verse, which is also mentioned in a book known as Maryville Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that to do your deed is easy, but if you come with it on the day of piano in text still in the jewelry box, then we will multiply it by 10. Because you deserve the multiplication.
You have protected it you did your deed and you carried on doing good and you did not worry about others. You didn't give away your deed. And this is why one Hadith says at the Duna many Muslims, do you know who is the bankrupt person? In a nutshell, the Hadith tells us a banker person is the one who comes with a lot of Salah a lot of xhaka a lot of good deeds on the day of the AMA, but they have backed between this one stone that one slandered that one accused this one. So the Salah goes there, the good deeds go there, they owe that one, the oldest one, they are left with no good deeds and they still have a line of people waiting, saying but they've also cheated us and lied about us
and so on. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says the evil deeds of those people are then taken and put onto that person. And then this person is cast into hell fire yet when they came into into that particular day of the AMA they had lots of goodies. These are the people who did not protect their good deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever make us entrapped by fun. This is why a question every single one of us needs to ask ourselves every day. How did shavon come to me today? Because anyone who thinks shavon did not come to them within a period of 24 hours is a fool Allahu Akbar shapen has tried his luck with me and you every day every time of the day he is trying his luck. He
promises Allah solid promises. We read some of them tonight.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says he is telling me and he is telling you that I'm going to lead them astray I promise you I swear an oath that I will lead them astray and he brings forth yet another issue. What else does shake man do? And let's look at some of the things he does. Well, yeah talamona mean Whoa, Mama you Federico NaVi binal No, he was a DJ shavon one of his biggest jobs that he loves doing is to separate husband and wife love Akuma so a small thing happens and husband gets irritated. small thing happens and wife gets irritated. That is chiffons plan. The next time you feel the irritation before you scratch Wait, it's itching. Ask yourself who is making me each year
or scratch here? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Sometimes, a little bit of silence will help sometimes a smile when things are tense will actually ease a lot of things. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us within our homes with a lot of happiness. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the devil. He must never be allowed to enter the house. Another thing shavon does, he makes us angry. Anger is from shapen as well. Because when a man is angry, he says things he does things without thinking the devil is thinking on his behalf. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the soul. That is why when one youngster came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and asked him or
messenger of Allah give me advice. He says don't get angry. He says okay, give me more advice. He says don't get angry. He says okay, give me more advice. He said Don't get angry Allahu Akbar. He kept on repeating it. Because anger is the root of a lot of regrets in life. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the soul. So many people have issued bollocks to their wives in anger. And then they come in to say, but I didn't know what I was doing well, why did you utter those words they are sacred words, dangerous words. Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever make us from amongst those who cannot control our temper and anger.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us that another act of shavon what he makes us do, whenever there is some important information, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says there are some people who don't know who to tell that news to they go and tell it to everyone. If it's a piece of good news, you don't need to tell everyone, some people might become jealous of you. And if it is a piece of piece of bad news, you don't need to tell everyone. Some people might become happy that you were inflicted with bad. And sometimes if it is to do with security, or if it is to do with goodness or evil regarding the entire community, you need to know where that news needs to go. Because as
Muslims, let me inform you, if you have a dispute with someone, the correct Muslim Islamic approach is to resolve the matter not to go out to the rest of the globe and spread the issue. But you need to sit together resolve the matter come out with a smile, our problem is solved. Allahu Akbar, when you see someone engaged in something wrong or evil chiffon will make you want to go out and broadcast that evil. Because that's men. That's the nature of men. Men wants to come out and prove that everyone else is better than I am right? I am the one who's good law. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala says no, that's not the way of doing things. If it is a believer, you've seen them singing the
truth of the matter is you meant to go to them and try and solve the matter. Look, brother, look, sister, this is not good. I won't tell anyone but this is something that you are in the clutches of shape and talk to them address them that that is the right way of doing things. Because now you want to resolve the matter. You don't want to promote the matter. But the honest truth is modernization has taught us to promote everything, anything bad or good just tell the whole world before you even resolve it. So now tomorrow even if that problem is solved, rumor will still be spread and we will be the source. And remember whenever whenever someone spreads rumor of someone else, they will taste
the punishment of that before they die. They will taste it before that die. So that is why it is very important that we don't fall into the clutches of shavon by spreading rumor about others. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Nisa will either
mean l m Nia will hovi other ob Walla Walla do in Ottawa suniva. ina, m remin. Home, la Lima who Nadine is
la la Motta moolah, tobacco Misha on in lap on Isla, if it was not for the mercy of Allah, and for his virtue, you would have all been following the devil besides just a few. But it's the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that gives us all chances to go back to the Creator. Allah says whenever good news or whenever news of security or news of news of instability comes to certain individuals who are hypocrites, they tend to inform everyone Allah says no. Inform only those who will deal with it positively who will understand how to treat that news and information. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant his understanding. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the handiwork of the devil.
And Allah says alcohol, gambling and all forms of evil. These are the handiwork
Have a plan you need to abstain from it because what chiffons intention is, is as follows. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in order to marry them in Rio de Lucia
como la vida de Waal Bella Bobo
amazing while also
he wants to create enmity between us through gambling and through alcohol and he wants us to forget and to turn away from salah and the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So a person who's a drunkard
how close is he to the Creator, he loses his mind at a certain stage but Allah protect us a person who Gamble's does not have that immersion in his heart to believe that sustenance is from Allah, He wants to start taking chances. He puts his money, they put their money, everybody puts their money and he does something that's not in his hands.
He wants to earn through that chance of lottery or through the chance of a casino. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us, the chances are only one that is being entrapped by shape and a person who walks in the direction of a casino is already in the wrong path. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us and protect us and our entire communities to panela. Nowadays, we've heard people telling us you know what, there is a little masala in the casino, Allahu Akbar, for what? For the Muslims, because those are the patrons. If that is the case, how they on one hand, we want to read Salah the other hand, we want to do the exact opposite of May Allah subhanho wa Taala never
ever overtake us with his punishment because sometimes I think we overstep the limits a little bit too much.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us about how the eating of haram renders a person totally brainless. When a person eats hallum their brain ceases to function. And this is a very important this once you put something Haram in your mouth, your tongue is already kissing you telling you look take it out, but we can't hear the tongue talk. The tongue is saying Why do you want to use me to devour something that's totally prohibited? Why do you want me to be kissed? Then the throat curses us? Then the esophagus curses us little colon curses as the big colon curses as the stomach curses us the liver the spleen the or everything the kidneys
begin to curse us. Why did you put her arm? Why did you put her arm in this so much so that as some of it is coming out? Even that section of the body curses us May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. That's how dangerous it is to put Haram. Now the problem is beyond that. What about the blood and the meat and the flesh that was made through that haram? It is a curse in our bodies forever. So look what Allah says. And this verse isn't too often bacara and levena coluna Reba, nyah como una
una de tabacos shavon hoomin illness, look at the word shapen coming into the picture, a person who devours interests. And usually, that interest obviously we know interest is haram usually is haram. A person who eats interest Allah says
they will not be able to behave in any other way than one who is possessed by the devil. Allahu Akbar, they will not be able to behave in any other way than the one who is possessed by the devil because they won't be able to distinguish between right and wrong, they will not see the light. You tell them the Quran says this. They'll tell you no, I looked at it myself. It doesn't say that I understood differently. Well, ah he the understanding is from Haram. Their brains are made with haram brain cells. May Allah protect us because that wealth that went in was from the devil. This is how serious shavonne is he's planning his long term because once it's in the system, to get it out
takes a very, very long time. This is why the narration says when a person drinks alcohol for 40 days the Salah is not accepted. So now you have a youngster who comes to us and says you know what? I don't come to the masjid. I've got another 30 days to go see But why? So he tells you because sorry money Mom, you know what I drink? You know? What nonsense is that? Whether you drink or not you still have to come to eat your Salah. But the reward of it for 40 days you won't get that me quickly explain that to you. When a person drinks alcohol, they still have to read their Salah. But Allah says the Salah is not accepted for 40 days meaning if they don't read the Salah they will be
punished. But when we all read our Salah we will achieve a reward a person who's drunk alcohol for 40 days if they read their Salah they will not be punished but they will neither be rewarded for it. It's like a compensation.
But if they don't read the Salah on top of being rejected, they will also be punished. So that is a clarification we need to understand. Not that some people they look at the Quran and they say no I seen you know the Hadith says
For 14 days so I've been given that grace period May Allah protect us. That type of thinking shows what Allah says. They are behaving like someone who is possessed. They have no understanding whatsoever no deep understanding. And this is the effect of haram income May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that about the eating of interest in Allah says, forgetfulness, when it comes to doing good things is from the devil. And forgetfulness when it comes to abstaining from bed is from the devil. Listen to what Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al anon, that when people are sitting, and they are saying bad things, and if you are sitting there You must
never ever keep on sitting once they begin to utter bad, especially the women folk will be the addresses for men folk as well. When you visit someone and they begin to gossip, you know, nowadays the men gossip more professionally than the females.
I wonder whether it's boredom or what it is. So when we are sitting with someone, they begin to gossip, it is your religious duty to stand up and say, Listen, my dear brother, Listen, my dear sister, you have begun to gossip Salam Alaikum, I'm going away. Allah will have mercy on you. How many of us are ready to do that? Allahu Akbar, Allah grant us the power, the ability. Now Allah says if you keep on sitting with him, then that is from the devil.
And if you have forgotten then you must know that the devil made you forget. So when suddenly you remember you get up and you must walk out, or
Karma Aluko me avani me. If the devil makes you forget, then as soon as you remember, don't sit with the oppressors immediately get up and walk away. Those who are oppressors, those who are doing wrong, we are not supposed to be in that company. Because that itself is from the devil. The devil makes us forget. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then also speaks about another very interesting point
in Surah, till we read the verses tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the story of Musa alayhis salam when he went out in search for Al Qaeda. And the fish suddenly disappeared when the fish disappeared. So the young man was asked, Hey, where's our lunch? Where's the lunch? We feeling hungry? come? He says, I don't know. I it's gone somewhere. I forgotten about it. And then he makes a statement which was recorded for us up to the day of judgment on
Kumara it was the devil that made me forget to remember it, Allahu Akbar. The devil makes you forget certain things. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in a few places in the Quran, like surah Yusuf, there was a good deed that was to be done by the prisoner who left he was told that when you go to the king just mentioned my name, they tell him there's an innocent man sitting in the jail. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In surah, Yusuf
sallahu chez fondo de Cultura de falla. beatha VCG nibio pasini shavon made him forget use of Allah meaning shavon made him forget use of Alayhi Salam and forget to remember use of Allah His Salah, and for the as a result of that use of Allah is Salam remained in the jail for a few more years.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about company and the fact and I've mentioned this a few times today. This is a solid point, a very, very powerful point. Do you know that if you have bad qualities, most probably you got it from your peers, those you mixed with sometimes they might even be your family members, sometimes even your parents. So if you have a bad quality, you probably got it from somewhere, but you didn't get it from Allah, you got it from the devil. That devil came to you in the form of possibly most probably your friends and your peers. So sometimes the upbringing in the home is very, very good. But the school you send your child to, they learn an accent from
that school, which is totally unacceptable. They begin to speak slang, they begin to sway they begin to cheat and steal all that is from the school. We need to be careful which schools we send our children to, we need to be careful what type of friends our children mix with. And bigger than that more important than that, how what type of people we mixed with ourselves. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah tofu con regarding the one who did not have good company
nakada upon any any victory bad Eva any Makana shavon in Santa Kaduna definitely on the day of the AMA they will regret and say yeah Allah this person whom I associated with my friend my bosom buddy, they made me forget you Yeah, Allah and definitely shapen was very deceiving to me, Allah. Now let me inform you when a person is smoking, nine times out of 10 they've learnt it from people they mixed with. When a person is on drugs, nine times out of 10 it is from people they associated with when a person is an adulterer, nine times out of 10 they've learned from the company they have when a person does not
For Salah nine times out of 10 it is because that is the trend around the people they mix with. When a person is an alcoholic nine times out of 10 it is because those who are whom that he or she is with is also like that when a person has a bad mouth, it's also the same. And that is why rehabilitation is a waste of time. If you yourself do not want to help yourself, because I promise you, a person who's on drugs, a person who's an alcoholic, a person who has any bad habit, it is up to you to change the whole world can want to rehabilitate you forever and ever. But if that quality is still in your heart, it is a waste of time and money for everybody to to be worried about you
know Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.
And this is why Allah says if you want to save yourself, the first thing you need to do, change your company, totally, totally every one of them, change them. If you are a bad person on drugs, cut out your whole friendship, and parents of those who are on drugs, let me inform you extremely important. You might want to change the suburb and the city you are living in. In order to protect your son or your daughter. You might want to go into a remote town so that your children can abstain from those they mixed with it will do you a ton of good even though your income might have decreased you you will save your children. That's the importance of the locality you live in the importance of it and
how serious it is your suburb the area you live in. Be careful, make sure you choose it properly. you rather live in a slum where the people around you all go to the masjid then to live in a palace where nobody talks about the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from evil company that is one of the biggest plans of shapen is he comes to you through your company, your company, your company, and this is why we are taught when you want to know someone don't look at them. Just look at the people they mix with and close the file. That's it.
We say this normally regarding marriage, you want to know a boy you want to know a girl more important than asking them about themselves. Look at those they mix with that sit close the file thereafter. If they are drunkards, they can turn green in their faces telling you I've never drunk they are lying. What are they doing with those? I've given an example and I want to repeat this example. When you see fish in the ocean, you will notice the whale moves with all other whales. You will notice the little bream move with other breams the snook moves with snook the hake moves with hake and so on. I'm using names of fish we eat actually Subhana Allah. But you will never find one
small fish one big fish one other fish one hook, meaning one snook and one lake and so on, you won't find that.
The reason is that is foolish. They have to have something in common to be moving together. The same applies to human beings, someone who's pious and someone who's a drunkard. They can't move together. Really. It's like a sardine moving with a whale. Allahu Akbar. It can't happen. One will devour the other Allahu Akbar. So this is why let them not fool you when they tell you to come not on drugs but the 10 guys who are mixed with the old drugs, tell him you are the boss. You are the main one. Don't lie. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our offspring. Remember those who are tested with drugs. It is up to you really to change yourself no one else you need to develop the willpower and you need to
make it to our to Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our offspring from drugs and may protect our offspring from all these bad habits of Allah He there are good people who lose their children just because of that company.
Allahu Akbar there is so much we could utter about this because that is the route of shamans plan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us conscious of shamans plan. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that she found there are some people who worship shape and they are Satanists. And the Quran speaks about them. They worship the devil in every single way. And the father of Ibrahim alayhis salam was one of them. As a he used to make idols and sell them. He used to promote the evil of the highest form which is chic.
So the little child in Surah Maryam Allah subhanho wa Taala says Ibrahim Alayhi Salam went to his father and says
yeah, but de la de Budi shine on oh my father do not worship the devil do not worship chiffon. Oh, my father don't worship shavon who is telling who the child correcting the Father. We spoke about it a few days back
in Russia panaca. Nanny Oh, man, he also he definitely Ibrahim Ali Salaam is telling his own father. Oh my father shavon was definitely a sinner and he definitely transgressed against the Most Merciful. Imagine
for the most merciful to kick someone out of his mercy. It is not something minor. If Allah Who is the most merciful decided that shavon and he'd be
He's kicked out of his mercy. He has to have committed a huge sin and a huge crime. May Allah never ever kick us out of his mercy. How would we be kicked out of Allah's mercy? By worshiping shavon? By following chiffon? May Allah subhanho wa Taala do that to us listen to what Ibrahim Alayhi Salam continues to say
buddy in knee
Fatah Khun Alicia Pani Walia Oh my father, I am fearing that punishment from the Most Merciful might overtake you and you will become a protector and a friend of the devil himself.
So those who promote the devil, it is a form of punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who don't realize the plan of Schaffer it's a punishment from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sometimes we ask Allah Subhana what Allah has forgiven us, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us every form of goodness. That is why in the Quran Allah says, make a dua that Allah protect you from shaitan
wakulla bo to become in him as that is Shailene Obama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, oh my IRA protect me from the whispers of the devil. Imagine if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had to make that do out What about us? We need to make it more on a regular basis. One whole surah is revealed. protection from the devil both types of devils. Those four men those from Jean we know Sugata ness at the end go and read it go and check its meaning. We are asking for protection from the devil from the whispers of the devil. That whisper in the hearts of mankind. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is stressing the point of men and how evil men can become May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant
us all protection. This is why Allah says what gallica Jana nikolina v.
c one gene, u e ba boom Illa.
Allah says, This is how for every prophet we have kept enemies and shayateen and devils from mankind and then from jinkin.
Why is mankind mentioned before Jin kind in the Quran? When it comes to the devils? Some of them have a Syrian say because the devils from men are far more dangerous because they come to you in the form of a human with a smile on their faces and yet they are promoting voice and they are convincing you they talk to you may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so Allah says they beautify the speech out of deception in order to come and live our people to do the evil that they are engaged in. That is why when we are reading Quran, it is important we say oh the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells this to us in Surah tunnel
for either Tara nfsi beenleigh hamina shape on your regime. So when you want when you would like to read the Quran, the word of Allah before you start seek protection in Allah from shavon the condemned because you don't want to read the Quran and then have a warped understanding of the Quran. Some people will read a verse in order to look for a loophole. And believe me if the mind is warped, they will be misunderstanding the Quran in totality. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about water. And the fact that water fresh water has the quality to protect us from the devil.
Look at what Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us regarding one of the battles that took place it rained, and when it rained, this is what Allah says in Surah to landfill, while Eunice z noir la mina sama
cumbre Jesus shame on Allah sent down rain in order to purify you and to take away the date of shaytan from you. Some of them of Assyrian have gone as far as saying, whoo does the same thing for you. If you keep yourself in the condition of Voodoo as much as you can in sha Allah, you will be protected from the devil. This is why in the morning, the devil comes in massage, you don't get a forfeiture. When you succeed to fight the devil in the code, and you get up the minute you turn the tap on when the water comes into your hand and you now put it on your face. The laziness is gone. It's gone totally voila, he has a guarantee. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us purity.
Allah says water has the capacity to purify you from the devil. That is why a Muslim must be making hoodoo five times a day wash their faces, wash their hands wash their feet to protect ourselves from the devil. Why do you think Allah says Salah will protect you from evil and immorality when evil and immorality is the first thing that shaitaan calls towards May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the soul.
I was telling you that
The devil tells you to do bad and after that he runs away. Listen to what Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Surah comas Alicia Pani is calling in Sonic for the example of the devil who tells men to disbelieve faram Guevara then when men this believes, then she fancies in a very
I am definitely free from you. I don't know anything. Allah subhanho wa Taala says shaytan says, look, it wasn't me it was you. You're the one who did it. And this is why on the day of fiama, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that chiffon says on the day of the AMA, he says, in Allah, how are the commodity happy to come far left to come. Allah promised you a true promise. I just gave you a little promise. And so then you broke Allah's promise and you came to me, I had no control over you. So don't come to me. I can't avert the punishment from myself nor from yourself. today. It's your day. It was you to blame not me. Look at how shavon does to us. And
sometimes people do that to us. They encourage us to do something and then they go away and they watch the fireworks. May Allah protect us. We don't want that to happen to us. Really. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us every form of protection. Allah subhanho wa Taala says whoever follows the devil, I will fill jahannam with them as well as the devil.
Debbie are coming home sharing, I will food jahannam and Hellfire with the devil and anyone who followed him. Allah is telling that to the devil, that you and all those who follow you, you deserve the same punishment because the two of you cronies all in one basket. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from the devil. Really, it is something serious. We need to look into our lives how the devil comes to us sometimes it's just a thought of pride or a thought that someone else is a bad person. That thought itself is already the first clutch of shapen to us, no matter how much Salah we are reading Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from the devil in every single way and grant us
inshallah every form of goodness was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah who become the satanic alarm or the Hambrick shadow Allah Allah Allah
