As salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:07 --> 00:00:15

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi wa sallahu wa salam ala Mallanna via badda who Allah Allah He was happy he was sending him

00:00:16 --> 00:00:33

before I commence I'd like to tell all those who have their phones up to put your phones down. We will not be recording in this Masjid inshallah I have a recording which I will make public later. So the phones that are up would be disturbing the others please can you put them down inshallah.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:36

My beloved brothers, my sisters,

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

the Quran is the word of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:00:42 --> 00:01:18

You and I know that Allah is the Creator, there can never ever be speech that is more powerful than that of Allah. So therefore, if anyone wants to do themselves a favor, get connected with the Quran. If you would like to connect with Allah, connect with the Quran, and Allah Almighty will be connected with you because that is his word. If someone gives you so much of importance that they learn your words, don't you think there will be a bond between you and that person? So when Allah Almighty has asked you,

00:01:19 --> 00:01:38

to learn the Quran, to memorize it, to put it into practice to convey it to others, you need to know that even without that instruction, we should already have connected ourselves with the Quran. So if there is an instruction, imagine how powerful it may be, and it is.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:49

The Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us Can you recommend to Allah mon Quran Allah Allah who the best from amongst you are those who learn the Quran and teach it

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

when the Hadith says Pharaoh come out here,

00:01:54 --> 00:02:28

AKA AKA the best from amongst you are those whose best character another Hadith says hey Eurocom Cairo calmly Lee the best from amongst you are those who are best to their family members. Are you noticing how this hadith speaks about the best of you the best of you, the best of you? We started off by saying is the one who learns and teaches the Quran because when you learn and teach the Quran, you automatically become the best of character, the best of conduct the best to your spouse the best to your family. That means you are practicing upon the Quran.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:39

If you have known the Quran off by heart, but your character at home is bad it means your connection with the Quran is weak. That's what it means.

00:02:40 --> 00:03:05

That's why we have witnessed those who completed the Quran today well Allah He the biggest responsibility is the fact that you have the Quran with you carry yourself like the one who has the Quran with him or her. When you have memorized the Quran, you've actually done the easy parts. While according to Salina, local an early victory for Halloween.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:36

Decades, we have made this Quran easy to remember to memorize, to learn to put into practice, all of that is included in a wicked Hellman mu decade. Is anyone going to put it into memory? Is anyone from amongst you're going to make an effort to learn it, to put it into practice and so on. So Allah Almighty is telling you, we made that easy for you. We made that easy for you. Are you going to do it? Do you know what

00:03:37 --> 00:03:47

people have come back from Hajj? Now I'm sure there are many who are seated here who must have been for Hajj or at least a few May Allah accept it from you? When do you know that your Hajj was accepted?

00:03:48 --> 00:04:19

It's quite simple. The forum is done. But the broader acceptance of your Hajj is connected to your life having changed if your life did not change, and you came back and went into the same bad habits, what was the point of that hajj, what benefit Did you benefit? How is it that your sins are going to be forgiven when you haven't even quit them yet? So this is why in many cultures, when a person has fulfilled the Hajj they call the person *.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:36

How do you say have you heard that before? You go to West Africa they say Alhaji Alhaji Mohammed Al Hajj Ali and so on and Hajj why al Hajj, why do they keep on saying that you are no longer mister and you are no longer this and you are now not even they won't even call you brother they call you *

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

in order for the honor of your Hajj to be given to you and the reminder that you are * you are not an ordinary person you have made Hajj which is the fifth pillar of Islam. You have fulfilled it remind the people the reason is when you are reminded the minute you feel lazy for Salah you tell yourself but I made my

00:05:00 --> 00:05:29

Hajj I already went through a time when all my sins were forgiven. Let me go and do something better Let me fulfill my salah. Let me quit my bad habits. Let me not do this and not do that because I mahadji I made Hajj. That would mean that if a person comes back from hygiene is not bothered about how their life changes. It would be a loss. The same rule applies when you memorize the Quran. You memorized it, bro Bukhari Al Quran one well, Quran well I know

00:05:31 --> 00:05:34

there are some people who recite the Quran but the Quran is cursing them.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

Why one of the reasons is

00:05:39 --> 00:05:44

you are reading the verse of the instruction of Allah and you yourself are not practicing upon it.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:52

Subhanallah so what is the Quran saying to you that Why are you just reading me

00:05:53 --> 00:05:59

and reciting melodiously but you yourself are not bothered about the instructions that have come with similarly

00:06:00 --> 00:06:30

in hola hola. Rafa will be handled Kitabi acquirement way over will be here for him. Mohamed Salah Salem says to us Allah elevate some people with the Quran and Allah dropped some people with the same Quran. So be careful. Oh, Amma of the Quran. Are we not fortunate? The most beautiful recital recently I witnessed some videos that were doing their rounds of people playing Surah Baqarah in front of the Bacara Have you seen that?

00:06:33 --> 00:06:41

I didn't do it myself. I just witnessed it. But I'm not surprised by the result. You know why? This is Kalam Allah it's the word of Allah.

00:06:42 --> 00:06:58

If you have seen it, you'd know what I'm talking about. They say they play it loud and what happens? The cows are amused and they are affected by this recitation in such a positive way that number one, they want to look towards it number two, they want to go towards it. Allahu Allah.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:06

It wasn't me who did that? But I saw quite a few people who tried it. They say it works guys you got something to do.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:21

But for me what was more important than that was we are wasting cow sometimes the Quran is recited for you oh man and you don't even look when Allah says why either Puri L

00:07:22 --> 00:07:53

over Stamey o Liang. Whoo. Whoa st Tula Lancome to Rohan. Oh, would you like the Mercy of Allah if you want it when the Quran is being recited, keep quiet. Listen attentively and concentrate the Allah come to Rama and then you shall have the Mercy of Allah. In order that you achieve the Mercy what should you do? When the Quran is being recited? Keep quiet. Listen, attentively concentrate.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:25

And that is the reason why the kuffaar of Maccha when the Quran was being recited, they knew it has an impact, powerful impact. It has the effect to heal the heart to heal the mind to heal the body. Allah says it has Shiva in it Allah says it has in it. It to me none we'll call it has the sukoon and the peace of the heart. And love Lavina Manu Adama in mukono Boom. Be Vickery.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:30

Allah be the Greenline he Takoma in

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

those who believe,

00:08:34 --> 00:08:35


00:08:37 --> 00:08:47

the calmness of the heart, by the remembrance of Allah For indeed, it is the remembrance of Allah that will come the heart. What comes your heart?

00:08:48 --> 00:08:53

What comes your heart? Is it not the beautiful melodious recitation of the Quran?

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

If it is good news to you, you're a believer.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:23

It has an impact even upon non believers. It has an impact even upon the hearts. Go and check out the social experiments that people have engaged in seeing any random person on the street and telling them listen to this, how do you feel and a lot of them will tell you I feel calm. I feel relaxed, it's soothing. Those are some of the most popular common words.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:36

So Allah is telling us, it comes the heart, the Dhikr the remembrance of Allah which is the most powerful remembrance of Allah of victory Tila to Quran.

00:09:37 --> 00:09:52

The best victory you can ever engage in is the the recitation of the Quran the best dhikr why it's the word of Allah, the word of your Lord Your makeup Subhanallah so give importance to this Quran.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

Continuing from there, it's not only calmness of the heart yah, you have

00:10:00 --> 00:10:03

Nashoba Dunja

00:10:05 --> 00:10:06

evil to

00:10:07 --> 00:10:08

become worship

00:10:10 --> 00:10:52

only Matthew sudo. Well, who then oh, Ma, Allah says in it there is guidance and mercy. And Allah says, oh people, there is a reminder that has come to you. It's a reminder, powerful reminder that's encouraging us to go through the meanings, we have memorized it. Now let's look at what it says the meaning of it, the translation that have seen the broader lessons when there are lessons that happen in the masjid, regarding the Quran, and its teachings and the Tafseer and so on, please attend. Why it is shaytaan who comes in make you lazy and think that that is not important? Because it is the most important

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

there we go.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:28

Word of Allah, how can they be anything more important than Kalam Allah. So Allah says, more either tune Mira become beyond that Allah says where she found only Morpheus to do it, there is cure for what is in the heart. Imagine the qualities of your heart will be cured, the jealousy, the ill feeling, the malice, the dirt, the love of worldly material items that come in the way of you and Allah, everything is dealt with by what recitation of the Quran, connection with the Quran.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

The true connection

00:11:33 --> 00:11:34

sometimes you see a young led,

00:11:36 --> 00:11:38

reading beautifully melodiously

00:11:40 --> 00:11:46

we will tell that young led mashallah Tabarrok Allah, may Allah bless you what a lovely recital.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:57

But my beloved child, listen to one thing, make sure that your character and your conduct is equally shining. Because your recitation is really shining.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:02

Allah gives you you don't want Allah to take it away.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:14

And the Hadith says that the Quran when you neglect it in any way, shape or form will go away from you even quicker than a camel that is not tied properly, will go away from you.

00:12:16 --> 00:12:23

So connect, how much should I read? That's a question how much should I read Quran a day?

00:12:24 --> 00:12:29

My brothers and sisters read as much as you can. The more you read the more time you will have.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:40

People say I'm not reading the Quran because I don't have time the creator of time that his Kalam read it. You will have Baraka in your time.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:57

When you don't have time pick up the Quran and read the Quran. Look at how you will have time it's a miracle of the Quran. Try it. People say I can only read one page because I don't have time please my brother read for five pages see how how much your time will increase.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:02

These are miracles people don't realize

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

it's tried and tested.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:14

I know a brother who told me that I used to read one page a day fearing the time. Now I read one juice a day and I have a world of time.

00:13:16 --> 00:13:38

So much of blessing in my time. May Allah help us connect Shavon will come about with every and any excuse for you to disconnect because he knows this is the most powerful Kalam without a doubt every Muslim will tell you if I were to ask you, which is the most powerful Kalam on earth the most powerful words and speech on earth you will say it is the word of Allah. No one has a second answer

00:13:39 --> 00:13:48

from among the believers. So Allah says in it there is cure. And on top of that, there is cure in verses of the Quran

00:13:49 --> 00:13:52

Surah Al Fatiha has cure in it Surah

00:13:54 --> 00:14:02

falak Surah to nurse they are known as Elmo with that they are the sewers, where in which you if you were to read them,

00:14:03 --> 00:14:08

Allah grant you protection because that's his column and his word being repeated.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:12

There are sicknesses that would be cured

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

by you reading the verses. You are cured from the tempering of shaytaan AYATUL kursi is very powerful.

00:14:24 --> 00:14:38

Do you read it every day, every morning every evening? When you repeat these verses with sincerity Allah says they are so powerful that the gem will not come near. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:41

Allahu Akbar.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:44

I was in Indonesia recently.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:48

And I made mention of a point.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:55

Have a magician, a lady from Russia.

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

In an interview online that is there

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

She was asked

00:15:02 --> 00:15:13

when you're doing your magic and when you're trying to do affect people with all types of magic. Are there any people that you find it difficult to actually affect? She says yes, the Muslims,

00:15:14 --> 00:15:18

the practicing Muslims who pray five times a day, these are the words of a non Muslim.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

Go and check it out. It's today

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

why she explains that when they pray,

00:15:27 --> 00:15:28

there is a strength

00:15:29 --> 00:15:41

and there is like a dome around them you just can't get through. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah He is a non Muslims telling you and you, you you think that this Quran we have been blessed with is something minor.

00:15:43 --> 00:16:05

It is the most amazing gift that you have. But you don't do khadar of it. You don't appreciate it. Sometimes you have a spouse or husband or a wife, the best that you could ever have had. But because you don't appreciate them, you lose them. It happens when you've lost them. You say oh, you know what? I lost? Too late, too late.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:16

Sometimes you have a gift of Allah a job. You don't appreciate that Allah has blessed you. And you start dilly dallying and you don't take it seriously and you lose your job.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:59

Allah says I gave you You were the one who turned away from me. You were the one who didn't want who did not appreciate how many times do you say like Alhamdulillah Shukria? Awaji to Jalla Jalla How many times do you say to You is all Praise Oh Allah to you is all thanks. Oh Allah, how do you expect to heal from your sicknesses, your diseases, your weaknesses, your difficulties, your hardships, and every one of us has all of those. I have difficulties and you do. The level of the difficulty is different, but I have hardship. You have hardship. The level of your hardship and mine is different and others might be more others are less but we have it because Allah says well hon one

00:16:59 --> 00:17:02

Nico, we will test all of you. You're going to go through challenges.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:10

You will have sickness, the level of your sickness difference, some will die in their sickness.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:33

Some of the sicknesses we are told by Nabi SallAllahu, wasallam if you have them, you die with the rank of a martyr. Imagine what type of sickness that is. Die with the rank of a martyr. Why? Because you are patient, you thanked Allah, Oh Allah, you kept me for 60 years with such good health now that I'm unwell. The first thing I want to do is to thank you for those 60 years.

00:17:35 --> 00:18:03

Don't complain? A U of Allah His Salam was ashamed to complain to Allah because he tells his wife, Allah kept me healthy for so many years. I'm unhealthy for a short time. How can I make dua to him to tell him that Oh Allah, this and that Subhanallah look at the level of love of Allah. He doesn't even want to complain, Oh Allah, you've kept me in this condition. I'm still happy. We are not prophets of Allah. We are not a human A salaam. So don't go back home and say today we were told don't make dua

00:18:05 --> 00:18:10

for us, you have a massive reward in calling out to Allah before you have the problem.

00:18:12 --> 00:18:48

Oh Allah protect me from sickness Allahumma inni or obika Meenal Barassi Well, junonia will do them when you see a scam. We all started memorizing these drugs when when please tell me COVID Mashallah. Allahumma inni are also becoming ill Barassi. Well, junonia will do them when we say in a scam. I hope you know what that means. May Allah Almighty protect all of us from sickness from harm from all the other diseases and grand cure? When you fulfill the right of the Quran, Allah will cure you from diseases you did not know you had.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:57

And you don't know and you won't know until when you meet with Allah. You may then find out you know, you had the disease coming up but because

00:18:58 --> 00:19:04

of your recitation of this of that of the Quran, we cured you. Allah says in the Quran, there is cure.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:16

Rob br who will be coming hamazon it Shayateen what are all gonna be counted up behind me?

00:19:17 --> 00:19:33

On what powerful words Allah says to us and we repeat these words, oh my Lord, I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the devil and shaytaan and I seek refuge in You from them, meaning from the shayateen even coming in my presence.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:37

You think they're going to come in your presence after that?

00:19:38 --> 00:19:41

You have your keen and conviction that is Allah.

00:19:42 --> 00:20:00

So your connection with this Quran Allah gave it to you, in order to encourage you to read it. Imagine if you're a father and you see your son, not paying attention at school for example. You want to encourage him you say go to school. It's important. Go to school this go

00:20:00 --> 00:20:04

Go to school and that and you try to encourage him and then you give him an incentive and you say

00:20:05 --> 00:20:08

if you go to school I will pay you 10 pounds

00:20:11 --> 00:20:19

I'm giving you an example. What are you doing? You're trying to encourage him even more. But even if you don't pay him the 10 pounds isn't it important?

00:20:22 --> 00:20:34

Better than school let me give you an example of madrasa. Why was we give the example of school? Okay. madrasa because a lot of the guys are lazy to go to madrasa you tell them You go, I'll pay you 10 pounds. What will the child do?

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

If he's sharp? He'll bargain make it 20

00:20:39 --> 00:20:43

Right? If he's sharp he'll bargain make it 20

00:20:44 --> 00:20:47

I see the youngsters Yeah, I'm not impressed with 20 it's too little isn't it?

00:20:48 --> 00:21:08

In Bolton how many 50 Whoa, look yeah, Mashallah. 50 make it 50. Allah Almighty gives you and i The young the old the adults, the male's the females Allah gives us incentive by telling us read one word of the Quran or give you 10 Hassan at 10 Hassan that is worth more than that. 50 We were talking about.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:11

But still we don't read.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:44

Still we don't read. Look how Allah is telling you one letter and that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tells us Oh ALLAH Kulu Alif Lam Meem Herff wala kang la fille? Huerfano Allah on her phone on her phone. It says though, you're talking to little children Subhanallah but you're talking to adults, you're telling them Look, I'm not telling you Alif Lam Meem is a letter alif is a letter lamb is a letter, Mimi's a letter you are going to get 30 has an ad for saying Alif Lam Meem and people haven't read Quran yet and we are adults and we're old people.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:46

What are you talking about?

00:21:48 --> 00:21:55

To encourage you to read Salat al Fajr? Here is Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam telling you Rakata alphatauri How you don't mean that dunya wa mafia?

00:21:57 --> 00:22:13

Two units of the Sunnah of Fajr. Two units of what sunnah of Fajr greater than the whole world in whatever it has. What is that? That's an encouragement. My question is if the Sunnah is that valuable? What is the Pharaoh?

00:22:15 --> 00:22:19

Have you thought of it? If the Sunnah is that much? What is the federal

00:22:20 --> 00:22:23

law Halal Allah, my brothers and sisters.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:38

This is the second lecture from the tour known as healing the ummah. And we're talking of the Quran yesterday, I touched on the burning of the Quran. And the point I raised is that

00:22:40 --> 00:22:49

if a person had found any fault in the Quran, they would not need or feel the urge or the frustration to go beyond that.

00:22:50 --> 00:23:15

They would have told you and made a big deal about it. But when they haven't found anything, then shaytan led them to think about burning it. So the fact that someone burnt it, it goes to show that they couldn't intellectually challenge it. They didn't have something to talk about it. They didn't have negatives they couldn't have had. So they so actually you need to thank Allah Almighty to say we are the amount of the Quran

00:23:17 --> 00:23:28

but today, because we had youngsters completing the memorization of the Quran, I seize the opportunity to say, Guess what, we have it in our hearts, you can't burn that.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:54

We have it in our hearts. Here we are five children in Bolton, whoa Subhanallah when I was told, would you be okay if they recited the last verses for completion so why not? Why not? How can we not be people are burning, we've put it in our hearts. And Allah says, Would you like the protection of Allah. If you want to put the Quran in your heart, Allah will protect you.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

Allah will protect you.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:11

So my brothers and sisters, this is a powerful encouragement. Abdullah aid has made it possible for us this time to go around speaking about healing the ummah.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:45

If you listen to all the episodes, you will probably get a lot today I want to tell you, you will heal yourself. You will heal your body, your spirituality, your mind, whatever else it may be through the Quran. And on top of that, if you were to follow it and put it into practice, you would be healed in your relationships and you would be able to heal the entire Ummah and whatever the Ummah is facing and going through because you go back to the word of Allah.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:53

I am in no way belittling the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam I firmly believe in the Sunnah

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

of Nabi Muhammad Salah Allah Allah Salah and we would not be considered believers if we don't believe in what

00:25:00 --> 00:25:12

madonn Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam or if we don't believe in the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but because the topic is the Quran, that's why we are talking more about the Quran.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:28

May Allah Almighty grant us acceptance. People are struggling across the globe. Just like amongst us there are some who are struggling. Some are struggling because they don't have jobs, some do not have

00:25:29 --> 00:25:34

clothing, some do not know where they're going to get the next meal from from amongst us.

00:25:35 --> 00:26:05

Some are struggling because of debt. May Allah make it easy for you to pay it back. Some are struggling because life has become very expensive, they can't afford things. Some don't have jobs, some don't have any income whatsoever. Some are struggling because of health matters. Some are struggling because of so many factors, the list is endless. I tell you, my brothers and sisters turned to Allah. Firstly, turn to Allah. Allah has the key to the solutions of your problems.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:21

Number one, you turn to Allah if you have not turned to Allah and you turned to everyone else, you're making a mistake, but you turn to Allah, Allah will guide you where to go to solve the matter. Allah will create a situation miraculously solve your problem

00:26:24 --> 00:26:28

Subhan Allah may Allah Almighty grant us ease

00:26:32 --> 00:26:36

you know, a story comes to my mind if you guys want to listen attentively.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:48

There was a brother. And obviously there's positives and negatives to the story, but you have to listen to it. There's positives and negatives to the story.

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

There was a brother

00:26:52 --> 00:26:54

always did see work.

00:26:55 --> 00:26:58

And he always thought to himself, you know what this the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu salah.

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

And I was told this many years ago by a by a first party,

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

and so

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

on when he was traveling,

00:27:10 --> 00:27:13

he was stopped by the police. Because he was speeding.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:22

And the speed the traffic warden stops him and says, You know what, you are speeding,

00:27:23 --> 00:27:24

you're going to be fine.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:30

And he says, You know what? While I'm sorry.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:34

He says, and you don't have a seatbelt. So that's another fine.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:46

So whatever it was, let me put it in pound terms. Say for example, the speeding was 200 pounds. And the seatbelt is another 200 pounds. For example. I'm not too sure what it was, it was a long time back.

00:27:49 --> 00:27:57

And he had his child sitting next to him in the front seat. He says, you're going to be fined for that too, because that's also not allowed.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:03

And this brother was missing Subhanallah SubhanAllah. So Allah Subhan Allah Subhana Allah.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:07

A little while later, he takes out the seawater and he starts.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:11

So the copper asks him, what are you doing?

00:28:12 --> 00:28:17

He says, no, nothing says Why did you take the stick out? He says, Well, I'm just cleaning my teeth. I'm just brushing my teeth.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:22

So this couple looks at him and says, You know what?

00:28:23 --> 00:28:25

He's ripping the ticket. And he says, this time I let you go.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

Because if you can't even afford the toothbrush,

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

you're not even going to pay anything here.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:55

But next time make sure that you don't repeat all of this is this man Subhanallah Subhanallah and is going anyway, the positives and negatives I'm sure you'll understand of them. I'm not trying to encourage you to say please try this and do this. No, it won't work. But the moral of it is if it is true, and if what I heard and I was told is actually fact, then you know what? That meant to work cool was on another level.

00:28:57 --> 00:28:59

That man was lucky he was a fortunate guy.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:07

But my brothers and sisters imagine when we connect to what Allah has taught, and what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam has taught,

00:29:09 --> 00:29:13

Allah Almighty will grant us the opening of this dunya and akhira

00:29:14 --> 00:29:41

don't we want goodness in this world? Rabbana Artina for dunya hashanah we make a DUA, oh Allah grant us goodness in the dunya. And oh Allah grant us goodness in the hara, and save us from what other Banagher the punishment of the fire? If you want that you need to understand the owner of everything is Allah. Ask yourself every day, how much am I connected with Allah? And how am I going to do better?

00:29:42 --> 00:30:00

Every one of us in worldly matters, we always want to increase we always want more and more and more and more, no matter how much you have. You want more. You have a million. You want 10 million you have 10 million you want 100 million, you have 100 million you are on another league. That's

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

What it is, you're on another league

00:30:04 --> 00:30:17

and now you're playing with the mashallah the boys in your league. We talk about beautiful things. Allah gave you that to see how you are going to use it

00:30:19 --> 00:30:28

to prepare for Jannah How are you going to buy your agenda? Why do I say buy? Do you know why? If you have 100 million you can buy Jana.

00:30:29 --> 00:30:38

That doesn't mean you don't read your Salah and know that your father and your pillars of Islam are there. Your father is your father they cannot change. But I want to tell you something very interesting.

00:30:40 --> 00:30:55

Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made an announcement who is going to buy this well and for him is Jana here comes with man of now founder of the Allahu Anhu What did he do? He purchased it they call him Earthman. Rani when he means he's wealthy, he's rich.

00:30:57 --> 00:31:40

He bought the well and for him was Jana. He did something else and for him was Jana. What was it, it was the wealth, he used the money. So you can use your money and get Jana by giving your money to a cause that is absolutely necessary. Something that Allah will benefit from you are quenching the thirst of a person. Allah says this man is giving his money to purchase a well and through that well he's going to get Jana he's healing the Ummah look at that, because he's going to allow them to drink but I want to tell you not everyone is on the level of mandovi Allahu and not everyone is on the level of Abdul Rahman if not from the Allahu ang. They were wealthy people. Some of us don't

00:31:40 --> 00:31:46

have that much. When they left this world they left hundreds of 1000s of silver coins and gold coins.

00:31:49 --> 00:31:53

Some of us up to this moment we've never seen what a gold coin looks like. Agreed.

00:31:55 --> 00:31:56

You have Okay, that's good.

00:31:58 --> 00:32:01

My brothers and sisters, you show it's a genuine one brother.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:05

I tell you

00:32:07 --> 00:32:10

the Hadith then tells us about something that is

00:32:12 --> 00:32:15

an even better deal. I tell you what it is.

00:32:17 --> 00:32:25

You will be very surprised but you know it. Didn't a man earn Jana because He quenched the thirst of a

00:32:27 --> 00:32:30

dog. Yes. Of a dog.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:35

It's mine I've now found on the Allahu Anhu quenching the thirst of the whole of Medina.

00:32:36 --> 00:32:38

What level of Jana is that?

00:32:39 --> 00:32:50

La Akbar. And he was already Sahabi Jalil, one of the top companions. He was already from the 10 who was told that for you is Jana, he has another means and another means and another one.

00:32:51 --> 00:33:00

I always sit and think imagine if we were from among those whom we were told for you is Jana. What would you do? What would I do? What should we do?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:40

I hope that we will do more and more good deeds to say now that I've got Jana. Let's get a higher level. But unfortunately man is such that once he knows he got something see. Now I can sit back, relax and let's enjoy a few of our last days because we are going to gentleman anyway, and then you end up losing it. It's like the guy who was dreaming and in his dream they were offering him a flake you know it's a flake nice chocolate right? And he argued no I need to flakes I need to flakes. I need to flex the man says just take one he says no I need to flex. He says no, just just take one. And suddenly his eyes opened. When his eye opened he realized it was a dream. So he closes his eyes

00:33:40 --> 00:33:42

and he said okay, just give me one.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:44

Just give me the one.

00:33:45 --> 00:33:47

That's what happens to us SubhanAllah.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:58

Here the hadith is telling you you can get Jana by quenching the thirst of an animal Wallahi. Today I want to talk to you about something interesting.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:15

We want to help the people who are struggling and suffering with their health. You know when you and I were unwell at some point in our lives, where did we appreciative of those who helped us our families, you're married your wife perhaps did for you unimaginable things.

00:34:16 --> 00:34:33

She might have cried more than you to Allah making dua Oh ALLAH cure my husband. And here you are not appreciating that. And vice versa. Some of the husbands they quietly make dua to Allah, Oh Allah cure the mother of my children, or Allah kill my spouse, my wife and so on.

00:34:34 --> 00:34:42

And imagine when you notice and you see and you're unwell, you feel so good about it. You have cured why because people around you are meaning well

00:34:44 --> 00:35:00

it's a sunnah to visit the sick and ill why you're healing the Ummah that's what it is. Visit them and please when you visit the sick and ill you must use your sense a little bit. You don't go and say we have to visit the ill because we're going to get Jana here and you sit there all day drinking tea.

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

Eating food and the people of the house must be worried about you. You need to know when to go and how long to sit for. That's all. Sometimes they are not healthy to even see people. So send the message we are making dua enough, today, even that much is considered visiting the sick.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:55

Because why you visited them through a message. It's not on the highest level, the highest level is to visit physically. But sometimes if the person is very ill and sick, they might be asleep, they might need the rest and you're gonna go and sit with them, you're gonna make it worse, send a message, it's okay, or phone call or phone one of the family members nearby and ask them and so on. But the point I want to raise is to visit the sick and ill is indeed a great act of worship. When you do that Allah will protect you as well, from sickness or if he affects you. And if you are inflicted by something, Allah will grant you some form of comfort and cure.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:13

So when Allah Almighty has written sickness for someone, they have to bear patience. The point I was raising earlier is if someone helped you while you were sick, and Ill don't you give dua to them. Let me tell you what type of dua

00:36:16 --> 00:36:38

It is reported in a hadith could see that Allah Almighty will say to them to humankind, that I was sick and you didn't visit me and been who Adam will say, Oh Allah, how can you have been sick? When you are a Buddha? Allah mean, You are the Lord of the worlds and Allah Almighty will respond to say, Did you not hear of so and so who was sick and ill had you visited them? You would have found me there.

00:36:39 --> 00:36:54

You'd have found me they had you inquired about them, had you visited in order to be have a positive effect on the sickness so that you can actually help them in their curing stages? That's what it is.

00:36:57 --> 00:36:58

You help them

00:36:59 --> 00:37:26

What will you earn? You will earn a connection with Allah. So why did I help this person? Not because they related to me, but they are a member of the ummah. That's what it is. They are a member of the Ummah, the man is not related to me, member of the Ummah, when a person is going through hardship and they are brokenhearted. Say a good word. Be there for them. Visit them, give them a good word, what will you do? You will heal them you heal the whole ummah.

00:37:27 --> 00:37:30

So many people enter the fold of Islam

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

in the prisons.

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

So many people enter the fold of Islam in the prisons and guess what?

00:37:39 --> 00:37:50

It's because when they are brokenhearted, someone comes to them and gives them hope in the Mercy of Allah read the Quran Come let's pray Come let's do this. Let's do that. Let's share our food let's whatever it may be

00:37:57 --> 00:38:07

because Allah Almighty is with the brokenhearted, according to Hadith, good see. So I want to ask you a question. Sorry, I have a strange request. The seat has dropped Can I lift it up again?

00:38:10 --> 00:38:11

Sorry, it's part of healing the amount

00:38:13 --> 00:38:14

zakat okay

00:38:18 --> 00:38:20

mashallah chakra, may Allah reward you.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:29

But you might wonder, why did I stop my speech just to lift it up? You know, if you don't speak and you shy you don't achieve. There's nothing we all meant here in China.

00:38:31 --> 00:38:54

So the point I'm raising is today, as we are sitting here, there are people who are sick and ill, how are you going to help them you may not be able to visit all of them. There are some people who have a difficulty that requires some intricate medication, something that's not easily available. You have the capacity to help make that available.

00:38:56 --> 00:39:01

Imagine if you were driven out of your homes, just imagine inshallah it will never happen.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:08

And imagine you had to run and imagine you ended up somewhere as a refugee.

00:39:09 --> 00:39:13

And imagine as you are seated as a refugee.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:19

Someone brings you a tent and tells you you know what, this is from the people of England in Bolton.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:23

And you're sitting somewhere in Syria or turkey or Jordan.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:59

I have witnessed with my eyes, the DUA and the tears rolling down the cheeks of the elderly mothers of community. And giving dua upon dua, upon dua upon dua, as though they cannot stop the to us to people they've never ever met, who come from Bolton, for example, or anywhere else. And guess what, if these people only knew that today you are sitting comfortable, where you are because of the dua of someone you will never

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

Meet in this dunya who cried and made a dua for you because you help them with 100 pounds.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:07

How's that?

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

I've seen it with my eyes.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:22

We have to heal the ummah. We are the ummah of the Quran, we are solidified by the bundle of Nabina Muhammad Salah Allah says Allah that Allah has placed.

00:40:24 --> 00:40:51

You shouldn't do by Lou Bava we're supposed to be like a wall like a building solid, one brick goes into the other. If you put the bricks one on their own, the wall will fall but you interlock them then you have a proper wall, we should be interlocked. I care for you, my brother, I love you, my brother, my sister, anything happening to you? I'm the first one to help you not because I want something from you. I don't want anything from you. I'm doing it because I love Allah.

00:40:52 --> 00:41:10

Allah who you hate Bill machine, it means Allah loves those who do good. I want to do good not because I think they deserve the goodness, but because I know Allah loves those who do good. That's why I'm doing good. So whether the guy reciprocates it or not, I don't care. Allah knows what I did. That's it. So my brothers and sisters.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:15

One of the opportunities that we have today

00:41:18 --> 00:42:01

is for the patients who are going through kidney problems where they need dialysis. Imagine you're in a refugee camp, and there is no dialysis, you have a kidney problem you have to wait to die and many have died when we started witnessing people dying as a result of kidney failure because of the water and whatever else it is that they might have consumed that destroyed their kidneys. And then we witnessing them dying one by one we thought we need to inform the rest of the Ummah, what's happening to a part of the OMA because it is very possible to help them they didn't need to, to have had that struggle and suffering when we are still around and Allah has has made it easy for us to

00:42:01 --> 00:42:17

help we can get them some dialysis units and give them the dialysis few times a week. Many people benefit from one machine. Many. Imagine if we have 10 machines and we open it for the refugees in the middle of the desert.

00:42:18 --> 00:42:25

And where did it come from? The city of Bolton for example, or the city of Blackburn or somebody they've never heard of BlackBerry what is Blackberry?

00:42:27 --> 00:42:30

Hardly he had the ear to mean if Wi

00:42:32 --> 00:42:34

Fi Blackburn they will say what is Blackburn

00:42:36 --> 00:42:52

and then they raise their hands and they start making dua one after the other. Who are you Wallah he might connection with you is only the fact that I'm an almighty of Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and so are you. I may not know you, but may Allah accept it.

00:42:54 --> 00:42:58

So today I told Brother Shakeel from Abdullah eight, I said my brother

00:42:59 --> 00:43:25

let us have a few of the card machines and a few of the tins who as we are leaving the masjid, to help those who are struggling with this dialysis because the next time I come here, I want to let you know how much we have done to for those refugees, the Syrian refugees who are struggling with kidney problems and inshallah will give generously by the will of Allah. I only want to ask you one question Will we give? Shall inshallah that was a good inshallah because sometimes you go into some cities

00:43:28 --> 00:43:31

you know when someone's in sha Allah they say will you come to my house in sha Allah that means I'm not coming

00:43:32 --> 00:44:14

but when they say in sha Allah that means yes we will do it may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us is whatever you can you want to sponsor someone for the whole year for the whole month for the whole week of a one day or for part of a day no problem. May Allah Almighty grant is I hear him asking how much is one one dialysis one day cost you 100 pounds? Where are they going to get it from? The idea is the idea is to be able to one machine Subhanallah you will speak to a human speak to him a little bit later insha Allah hey look, I had a feeling Bolton would give us about 2030 machines and it's a good thing and to all those who may listen to this later online, you can still go to Abdullah aid on

00:44:14 --> 00:44:25

their website and you can donate by the word of Allah. Because we want Baraka you know what when you encourage someone to give you get a full reward of it and the day you are sick and ill The angels will take care of you

00:44:27 --> 00:44:59

may Allah Almighty grant us ease so reaching out to the Amma healing the OMA like I said, we speak about connecting with the Quran. We speak about connecting with Allah about quitting your bad ways and habits about changing your life but with that, we must also tell you physically do something. If Allah did not give you wealth because you are young or you are a little bit older, with a few struggles, no problem make dua for them. If you can't afford to give the 100 no problem you don't have to because the work of Allah carries on with us or without us. But if it's with our dua, we will still get a reward for it.

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

May Allah Almighty make it easy. And I want to end with one beautiful encouragement.

00:45:06 --> 00:45:33

My brothers and sisters, we are living in an age where people are trying to drift us away from the Quran and Sunnah. I'm telling you that is a fact. Please give importance to your relationship with your children from birth. That's my message. Please take care of your relationship with your children from birth. That's what I'm telling you from birth. In fact, before birth, when the child is in the belly of the mother, whatever the mother listens to try and keep it Quran.

00:45:34 --> 00:45:39

Try and keep it beneficial things. Some of the children are born and they know all the Bollywood songs.

00:45:42 --> 00:46:00

We want our children to be born and already turned towards the Quran in such a beautiful way that it's the Quran that suits them today I'm seeing young boys I'm so proud of you to be here. I'm so happy that you ever hear the young boy who said 50 quid Subhan Allah, may Allah bless you with 500 quid mashallah, what's your name?

00:46:01 --> 00:46:40

Muhammad, Zayn. May Allah Almighty bless you and grant you ease and all of the others who are here, I met so many of these young lads sitting right in the front here, it's it shows that our children would love to connect with the dean, if you are not going to spend time with them every single day as a parent Wallahi you've lost. And that's why those of us who might have been unfortunate to go through a divorce. Don't deny the other parent of that particular child a connection with the parent. The reason is, you don't know what you're doing. You have no clue who is going to eat up that particular child in a few years.

00:46:41 --> 00:46:44

And if there are any children who have been denied

00:46:45 --> 00:46:50

access to one of the two parents don't believe the other one. They're not telling you the truth.

00:46:52 --> 00:47:01

Make an effort to go and visit and meet at whatever age you have. And Ken May Allah Almighty bless us all and grant us ease and goodness, before I leave, I have a request.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:07

I'm a human by you shaking, my hand is not going to elevate your status or mine

00:47:09 --> 00:47:17

and we need to depart Inshallah, we've been very, very busy and we've been moving from place to place so what I would like you to do my brothers

00:47:22 --> 00:47:39

what I'd like you to do, Inshallah, if you can make a space for us to go not because we are arrogant or anything but it's humanly impossible to greet everyone. Inshallah, if we a few people we may be able to shake hands, but we don't want to stampede and at the same time, we need to depart in sha Allah. Wa sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad
