smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He was happy, and we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we thank him upon all conditions we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his entire household all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all. My beloved mothers and sisters in

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

Islam

00:05:01--> 00:05:47

the surah that I've just read the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam according to several narrations is that he used to read it in Salah to federal on a Friday. And it is a sort of that is absolutely important. It reminds us of the beginning of man, the duties of mankind and what men will get as a result of the good deeds that he does. So its meaning is absolutely powerful. Let's get straight into the verses Allah subhanho wa Taala says hello, lol in sunny Hainan Mina de la mia Khushi Kamakura has there not come upon men a period of time when he was not a thing even mentioned? This Allah is showing us how insignificant we are as man how we were non existent just

00:05:47--> 00:06:28

before a few years, and how even prior to that we will not even present in the form of a soul. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us You are so insignificant, you are just on this earth for a short period of time we made you we are going to take you back. And Allah subhanho wa Taala asks us this question in order for us to understand that we think we're a big deal now that we've grown up, we've learned how to speak we've earned a little bit of money, and we happen to be in authority perhaps or maybe we have a bit of power in some way. And we think we're a big deal not realizing we are totally helpless when it comes to Allah. If Allah Subhana Allah to Allah intend something, we

00:06:28--> 00:06:54

have no say in it. And if Allah subhanaw taala wants goodness for us, nobody else can stop it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in verse number two Indeed, we created men from a sperm drop mixture, a sperm drop mixture, here the mixture is being referred to either as the the egg of the female or the sperm of the male or the mixture of the two the zygote that is formed as a result, how insignificant man was.

00:06:55--> 00:07:41

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we created him from such a mixture that we made try him the reason why we created him is so that we may test him, we may try him, Allah says, obviously, we did not have to create mankind, we did not have to create any of the creatures, but we created mankind and Jin Chi and in order to worship us, worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, we created man in order to test him. And we made him hearing and seeing we made him hearing and seeing, you know, if you have for example, a game that people would probably play, say, for example, you have the paint ball that they actually play, you would need to go in, you would need to wear a specific uniform, you would need to

00:07:41--> 00:08:18

have this little paint gun. And at the same time, you would need to be able to shoot towards your competitors or those whom you are playing with. There is no point in going into the game to be tested how good you are, and you don't have the apparatus that is required in order to play that game. Similarly, when you are going into a car race Formula One for example, you would need the vehicle you cannot just go with your little Corolla, or with your little Toyota that is perhaps a a c. Camry or something and you say look, I want to race No, your vehicle is wrong, and you don't have the right apparatus. So the same applies in any examination, you cannot enter an exam room without a

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

pen or a pencil.

00:08:21--> 00:08:57

Allah says we put you into this huge exam room known as the dunya. And we gave you what you needed in order to pass the test what was that you have a brain you have hearing you have a scene you have so many other faculties we've given you. If we've taken your brain away, for example, you will not be tested, you will be excused to Panama, look at the test of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when you have been given this Faculty of hearing and seeing it is in order to obey Allah instruction, it's part of your test, you will be able to write your answers via those organs that Allah has blessed you with. If Allah wanted he would not have given you these organs, but he says we gave them to you,

00:08:57--> 00:09:37

each one of them in order to be tested via those particular organs. Let's understand this. My mothers and sisters, we could go deeper and deeper into it. But I hope that we would probably understand what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying here. We created men from a sperm rock mixture, that we may try him and we made him hearing and seeing so he can hear he can see. And this is just by way of example, but Allah has given us so many other faculties. He can feel, he can reproduce, he can walk, he can do so many other things and all of that we just want to test him will he do it properly? Will he not do it properly? Verse number three, Allah says Indeed, we guided him to the

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

way so after we gave him the faculties of hearing and seeing, we guided him the way we told him what's right, we told him What's wrong. We guided him the way

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

be he grateful or ungrateful. We guided him the way now, this has two or three different interpretations. One is Allah guided mankind the way the path and Allah knows where the man will be great

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

Full or ungrateful? That's number one, making mention of predestiny. Secondly, Allah guided men the way and Allah subhanho wa Taala is testing him whether he will be grateful or ungrateful. That is another translation interpretation. Thirdly, Allah subhanho wa Taala guided him the way and decided whether men will be grateful or ungrateful in every individual case, the third also being the power of Allah in terms of the predestiny and decree that Allah has chosen. We do believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala, to a great extent has given us a will, that we understand to be our will, that's what he will question us about. Although it all falls under his power, it all falls under his

00:10:40--> 00:11:22

authority. But at the same time, we know that it's Allah subhanho wa Taala, who allows things to happen in order to test us for example, you happen to put an animal say, let me not use a dog, but let me use the example of perhaps a lion, you happen to have a pet lion, and you put the lion on a leash, that leash is 20 meters within 20 meters, you know that this line will go wherever it wants, and I'm allowing it to go 20 meters if you want to pull that to make it 15 or 10 or five, it's up to you, the lion will not be able to cross a certain boundary. So, if there is water at 15 meters, the lion would generally be allowed to go there because you have a 20 meter leash, but if you pull that

00:11:22--> 00:12:01

leash in order to make it 10 or and you hold the other 10 where you are, the lion will not be able to get to the water. similar example when it comes to mankind. Allah allows us to do certain things, but sometimes he holds back in such a way that we cannot do those things even though we may think that we have the capacity capability, etc, etc. Sometimes Allah doesn't allow it certain things take place. That will stop us from doing things that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want us to do. So Allah says, We have guided man Okay, he has hearing he has seen let's see what he does. Verse number four. Indeed, we have prepared for the disbelievers chains and shackles and ablaze.

00:12:03--> 00:12:21

So the first thing is a warning given to those who don't believe given the given to those who go astray given to those who don't use their faculty of hearing and seeing wisely given to those who are led astray. Those who don't use their common sense etc. Allah says we have prepared for the disbelievers chains and shackles and the Blaze.

00:12:23--> 00:12:31

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed the righteous will drink from a cup of wine, whose mixture is of car food.

00:12:34--> 00:13:21

The mixture of car for firstly wines here refers to fresh grape juice, fresh apple juice, fresh fruit juice, the purest of fruit juice is also referred to as wine. This is non intoxicating, when the Old Testament speaks of wines it refers to fruit juices it does not refer to an intoxicating drink that later on the term became known for but at the same time my mothers and sisters when Allah says this is a beautiful mixture and it has in it Carrefour then definitely we need to know that that would be a some exotic unique mixture that only Allah subhanho wa Taala would know and he would keep it for those who believe verse number meaning that the word car for the footnote says a sweet

00:13:21--> 00:13:24

smelling spring in paradise.

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

So car for

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

from car food would mean from the sweet smelling spring in paradise.

00:13:34--> 00:14:19

And Allah subhanho wa Taala describes it in the next verse, a spring of which the righteous servants of Allah will drink mela makers from among them, I mean, a spring of which the righteous servants of Allah will drink. They will make it gush forth in force and abundance. It won't be depleted, it won't complete it won't be ended. Those who are righteous will be able to drink from it now, pause for a moment. Verse number four is where Allah warns the disbelievers but verse number five and six and so and other verses Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the goodness that he has prepared for the believers for those who do good so Allah says, indeed the righteous will drink from a cup of wine,

00:14:20--> 00:14:41

whose mixture is of Carrefour it comes from this beautiful spring, a spring of which they the servants who are righteous, the servants of Allah will drink they will make it gush forth in force and abundance. They are those who fulfill their vows and fear a Day whose evil will be widespread. So who are the righteous?

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

Who are those who will be given this drink of Carrefour? Who are those whom Allah will grant paradise to. They are the ones who fulfill their vows. When you make a vow, you fulfill it. And they are the ones who are constantly thinking about how bad the Day of Judgment is going to be. So that

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

They can prepare their answers they can prepare for it. My brothers and sisters, the best way to prepare for the Day of Judgment is seeking Allah's forgiveness and returning to Allah seek Allah's forgiveness constantly. And those words will come to your assistance and help on the day of the AMA, Allah subhanho wa Taala says quite clearly, and they give food in spite of their love for it to the needy, the orphan and the captive. This is one of the most powerful verses regarding giving.

00:15:32--> 00:15:47

Allah says, they give food, in spite of their love for it. What this means when you have something you really love, and you can part with it and give it for the cause of Allah, Allah says, we will give you something that we really love Subhan Allah,

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

or you would really love Subhana Allah.

00:15:53--> 00:16:31

So when a person has things when you become so attached to your materialistic items, even a piece of clothing that you become so attached to, that if someone has to even burn it a little bit with the iron by mistake, you've lost your head, that's what it is, and they will lose their job. That's it finished, it's over. You don't know that was Allah subhanho wa Taala trying to let you know that yes, we know this is the day of eat. We know you spend so much money on this outfit, we know everything, but we don't want you to wear it. So we made the made Burnet Subhana Allah and you got upset and she lost her job. And guess what, that was just your connection to materialistic items to

00:16:31--> 00:16:52

the degree that you didn't even react properly. Allah says even if you love the thing, give it away. Let's see, let's see if you can give it away. It's not compulsory to give that which you love. But it's definitely a different level of piety. So Allah says, The true righteous are those who will give food away, even though they love it. So panela they want it, they will give it away.

00:16:54--> 00:17:18

To who to those who are needy, those who need it more than them to the orphans. This is showing you the status of the orphans and the captive, the captives, those in war, when you have captured them, the prisoners, Allah speaks about how kind you need to be to them, to give them things you love even more, no religion, and no form of no country on Earth teaches this.

00:17:20--> 00:17:54

Politically, nobody would actually tell you, you need to treat your captives in such a way that you give them what you love, even though you love it, in order to make them comfortable in order to treat them as human beings. People only know Oh, the Muslims, they they take these capitals as slaves, and they do this and they do that etc, etc. Can I tell you something very interesting. There are no prisons or they were no prisons at the time to hold these captives. So they were distributed amongst the families to say look, you keep to you keep for you keep this you keep that you keep so and so you keep so and so you will keep them as human beings as they will work for you because they

00:17:54--> 00:18:32

are supposed to be captives. But you treat them properly, you treat them with respect, you feed them, look at this West, you feed them with food that you would love yourself, and that's when you will earn paradise. So it was a way of keeping captives respectfully such that they could live within families to three with each family or one or sometimes if the family cannot manage nobody with that particular family rather than bungling them all into small candles that are not even fit for dogs and call it modernization and call it you know the Geneva Convention being followed May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and grant us a deep understanding of the deen at times we don't

00:18:32--> 00:19:11

even know how to defend this Deen, whereas it is definitely the most humanitarian faith and still people need to learn from it and adopt what it teaches. Imagine if they were prisoners of war, so many of them, say women and children and everyone else who are perhaps prisoners of the war that might have taken place. And they would distribute it amongst families to say, Look after these in a beautiful way, and fulfill all their rights and obligations, clothe them, feed them, make sure that you give them even and now I'm applying this verse, even when you love your food, but you still feed them with that food Allahu Akbar. And Allah mentions them in the same verse as the orphans and you

00:19:11--> 00:19:22

and I know that the orphans are spoken about in the Hadith, where the Prophet peace be upon him says, Whoever looks after the orphans, I will be his companion in paradise. And Allah speaks about the captives in the same verse,

00:19:24--> 00:19:43

the needy, those who are in need, if Allah wanted, he could have fulfilled their need, even in a better way than he fulfilled yours, that he fulfilled your needs. But Allah kept them needy in order to test you have you ever thought of that the poor are poor, so that the rich can be tested and the rich are rich so that the poor can be tested and vice versa. So on

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

it the rule applies in every single way. So if Allah wanted, they wouldn't have been any poor but Allah says this is your test. We gave you hearing we gave you site we gave you the other faculties. We gave you the ability then after that you worked a little bit, we gave you some sustenance, and then we kept poor people around.

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

Due to see whether or not you will reach out to them, you will give them you may not give them etc, etc. Yes, there are some people who are just quite lazy and they have a bad habit of going around and begging, you might want to deal with them in a different way, but not disrespectfully. You may not want to give someone but not out of disrespect. You don't sway them. You don't mock them. You don't you don't laugh at them. You don't belittle them, but you might want to tell them listen, I believe you can actually get a good job, I'm going to help you this time here. But next time, please, you'd rather work and earn a living than to go around begging etc. Those type of respectful

00:20:32--> 00:21:11

statements are acceptable. But when someone starts swearing, mocking, laughing, throwing things at them, that you are failing your test, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in this country. It's becoming more and more of a problem. And I would like to think that people are genuinely not able to make ends meet because even those who have had a slightly more luxurious life have had to downgrade in a great way May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so long as you're not downgraded for your agenda. you're heading in the right direction. you're heading in the right direction. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the agenda. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, they give food in spite of their love

00:21:11--> 00:21:51

for it to the needy and the orphans and the captors. The verse before that Allah speaks about the other qualities he says they fulfill their vows and they fear the day whose evil will be widespread. This shows us two things. One is a vow that you make needs to be fulfilled. So make simple vows don't make big, big vows. Number one is your promise and your covenant to Allah we can or cannot, we may or may not call it a vow. Those need to be fulfilled anyway because they are a promise they are a trust. They are the pledge that you have pledged normally it's called a ladder. Here it is called another Allah refers to the pledge. And another refers to a vow. A vow generally is if a person says

00:21:51--> 00:22:31

if my son is cured, I'm going to read 200 units of Salah Okay, so the Hadith explains that you have to fulfill it if your son is cured, whether you like it or not, you have to do it if you don't, you played the fool with Allah. But in the first place, you shouldn't even have made such a vow. You should have told Allah I'm reading to record or for a god or Salah to cry to you to kill my child. That was a better way of doing it. Don't connect the reading or the doing of a good deed on something that you want Allah to do for you because that is belittling the status of Allah subhanho wa Taala one might ask, how is it belittling the status of Allah? Allah doesn't need your act of

00:22:31--> 00:22:38

worship. It's like telling a wealthy wealthy multimillionaire that you know what? Come to my house. I'll give you $2 I mean, Shut up man stole from Allah forgive us.

00:22:40--> 00:23:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us he's a multimillionaire. How can you tell him come to my house and give you $2 he doesn't need the $2 he tell you I won't come to your house. And I will give you $2 million as possible while I'm waiting for that type of a guy. But anyway, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and guide us. Allah is indeed higher and greater than all of those my mothers and sisters. Remember this so you cannot tell Allah kill my child and I'll read 200 records on the 2000 records for another 2000 records of Salah zero is not he doesn't need it, you need it. So you'd rather say Allah I'm going to read it to see now and I want you to grant me cure that's a far better

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

way of doing things.

00:23:21--> 00:23:25

That's why the Hadith Mohammed Salah Salaam says another laity behavior in

00:23:27--> 00:24:03

this type of a vow vows do not bring about any goodness for anyone, but they are just a means of extracting good deeds from a stingy person who doesn't want to do the deeds. Oh Allah, Allah, if I pass my exam, I'm going to read the whole Quran once Come on, come on, read the Quran now started now say well, I started reading the Quran, Allah have mercy on me all I'm going to finish this Quran, Allah asked you to grant me cure, I asked you to help me to pass my exams, etc, etc. That's the way of doing things, do the things and then you ask Allah for goodness or promise it whether the thing is going to happen or not. It's besides the point whether it happens or not. But still, if

00:24:03--> 00:24:30

you've made the vow and you're a believer, you will understand Yes, this vow needs to be fulfilled, it's called another you will not be necessary, they fulfill their vows. So remember, let's not mix this up to make the vow in the first place is makrooh. But once you've made it to fulfill it is far off. Remember that okay? When Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease I'm sure you understand why it is mcru I've just explained it to you. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on every single one of us.

00:24:33--> 00:24:50

When Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something else, which is a quality that describes those who are truly close to Allah, Allahu Akbar II. Every time I've read this verse since I understood its meaning when I was young, something happens to me.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

I want to read the verse that I've already read and in order to build it to the next one, Allah says they give food in spite of their love.

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

For it to the needy, the orphan and the captive, okay. Then Allah says, they say, Why are they giving the food away? Why are they giving to the needy and the orphans and the captives, they are saying, We are feeding you only for the face of Allah. And we wish not from you reward or gratitude, I am doing this for the sake of Allah, I'm not doing it for gratitude from you or a reward from you. Now, this distinguishes those who do things for the sake of Allah and those who don't. In this world, I'd like to think 90%, if not more of people who give things they want something in return, at least an acknowledgement or at least an appreciation at least something they want something in

00:25:40--> 00:26:13

return, they look forward to it, you must be kind to me in return. Because you know what, I give you a lot of money. I do a lot for you. I'm the one a lot of people would actually make you listen to statements like, if it wasn't for me, I wonder where you would be. I'm the one who got you the job. I'm the one who made you reach. I'm the one who looked after you. I'm the one who got you married. I'm the one who did this. I'm the one who did that for you. And Allah says, Well, if you say all of those things, then you cannot be of the highest of levels. So Allah says those who are of the very, very high levels, they are the ones who when they feed you, they actually say we are doing this for

00:26:13--> 00:26:45

the sake of Allah. And we wish not from you. Reward or gratitude. I don't want anything from you in return. You know, maybe you can say jack Hello, hello. But even that, I'm not going to tell you to say it is up to you to say it. It's up to you. So we are taught to show gratitude. But we are not taught to demand that gratitude. I hope you're following. If someone does good to you, you are taught to do good back to them, definitely. But when you do good stuff to someone, you are taught not to wait for goodness to come back in your way or not to do it with the intention that perhaps goodness might come my way.

00:26:47--> 00:27:21

It's quite clear, I hope I've discussed both angles and both aspects of it. Let me repeat it one more time just to make it absolutely clear. When someone does good to you, you are taught to respond with goodness, with kindness with gratitude make to offer them at least and you know, reciprocated perhaps in a beautiful way better way etc, etc. That's when someone does good to you. That's what we are taught. But when you do good to someone you are taught to have done it for the sake of Allah. If good statement comes as a result, it was by the way, Alhamdulillah I didn't expect it. If someone for example gives you something in return or says a kind word Alhamdulillah The difficulty is when

00:27:21--> 00:28:05

we do it for the sake of people and for the sake of expecting beautiful statements, etc. The day doesn't come we get upset not realizing it was for Allah. We should never get upset. Expected experience is when you do good to someone nowadays. Over a period of time you can expect evil to come in your direction from them in a lot of cases. Illa Rahim Allah the exception is for those whom Allah has had mercy upon you do good to someone you've only done good to them. You've only helped them you've only assisted them. You've never demanded anything from them. You've given them whatever you could have. And it's Alice plan somehow that somewhere in the future, they will talk bad about

00:28:05--> 00:28:23

you they won't even defend you if others are speaking bad. They will perhaps harm you They might even attack you. They might even accuse you They might even slander you all that is because Allah is trying to tell you you know what was it done for me or for them if it was done for them I want you to know that man is in ungrateful filled with ingratitude.

00:28:24--> 00:29:00

But if you did it for me, no matter what they've done as a result, it was always acceptable it with me and I will give you the full reward of it this is the spring that I promise from Carrefour that you will be drinking from. Wow, amazing. So a lot of the times you do good to people you can expect in a few years time for them to damage you. In return. Like I said a llama Rahim Allah meaning they are those who Allah has had mercy upon those who fear Allah, those who fear the same day, they will remember the goodness that you've done to them, the bare minimum, they won't harm you, like I say, and my mothers and sisters, I want to repeat this many years ago, you know, people used to have

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

friends and the friends used to stick up for one another and they used to defend each other. And they used to have beautiful relations and so on.

00:29:08--> 00:29:51

Nowadays, the best person in society is not he who helps you. The best person in society is not he who sticks up for you know, I would like to think the best person in society is he or she who does not harm you. That's what I think. And I stand by what I say if someone hasn't harmed you, they are lovely, lovely people trust me. They are absolutely amazing. Pray for them. Wow, this person hasn't harmed anyone. This person hasn't harmed me while Subhanallah I really don't expect them to come and give you handouts and say good words about you, etc, etc. that is on another level altogether. That's another that's a level of piety between them and Allah but we talking of good in terms of

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

human beings. They haven't harmed you because trust me the amount of harm that people inflict on each other for anything and everything nowadays.

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

ridiculously high May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and strengthen us. The reason I say this is for myself to also take heed that I should not be harming people. And for us all to take heed, we should not be harming people with our tongues. Sometimes it's just a little statement remember it's part of your test allows waiting to and the angels were writing things down. As soon as you uttered it, it was written down against UConn, you fail the test and you carry on That's it, you go to another test, and you fail that test. Why? Because you didn't need to say those words. You just needed to say good words. Decent words. You know, there are two times when in fact have two or three

00:30:37--> 00:31:07

times a few times when there is an exception. When someone's getting married. And they asked you for the reference you have to be truthful, there is no ways that you're allowed to lie. So if you know a look, this guy here is really bad news. You've got to tell this person look, I'm just warning you This is bad news because it's an Amana It is something very serious. Similarly when someone's doing business with another person and you know they've cooked you and robbed you or someone robbed someone, not just your feelings and your ideas, but you know, with evidence, you need to tell them listen, you're going into business, if they've asked you you can you have to be honest Don't say no

00:31:07--> 00:31:39

Mashallah good businessman, you know? Mashallah. hamdulillah? Yeah, it's okay. It's okay. You know, beautiful hamdullah you want to marry this chick? Oh, wow, she's topspin. She's beautiful, you know? Oh, no, no, no, you just need to be honest to say, Listen, you know what, we have this problem that problem, I Please do your own due diligence. But at the same time, I just want you to know that there have been issues stop us. But you have to be honest, that's part of your test as well. People might not like you as a result, but that was honesty, you know, but for nothing, you just go around announcing to people, hey, this person is like this, this person is like that. And it said, all that

00:31:39--> 00:32:15

is unnecessary. The third time when you're allowed to actually say something about someone that might not be so positive is when they have wronged you, yourself, and you are seeking justice or warning people about them. So if you have been involved firsthand, I'm involved. I was robbed and cooked, this person came in. And this is what they did to me. I'm allowed to talk about it. It's not backbiting because it happened to me in person, and I need to seek justice. Imagine going to the court and the judge says right, what do they do? I can't wait. I can't say why. I'll be backbiting Come on, come on, come on. Can't you understand common logic, that that's not backbiting that is

00:32:15--> 00:32:51

seeking justice? That is it happened to you. But now if it happened to a third party, fourth party, and you're just going around disgracing this person, you know, spoiling their name or perhaps maybe trying to involve in something you were not involved in, then it would be backbiting May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all, I hope I've made it a little bit clear. So Allah says, when these people feed, they don't feed because they want something. In return. They feed for the sake of Allah alone. When they give, they give huge amounts, they give what they like, and they don't expect anything in return, they given the carry on. Sometimes they would even give anonymously. The Hadith

00:32:51--> 00:33:22

says the best of charity is those, the left hand doesn't even know what the right hand has spent. Then Allah says number 10. Indeed, and this is what they would say, indeed, we fear from our Lord a day that will be distressful a day that will be distressful in Nana half a mil rabina. Yo mana Busan compartir. On a difficult day, we fear from from our Lord a day that will be very, very difficult, distressful extremely hard.

00:33:25--> 00:34:08

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says as a result of that fear as a result of the good deeds they did, Allah says, so Allah will protect them from the evil of that day, and give them radiance and happiness, and we'll reward them for what they patiently endured with a garden in paradise of silk garments. A garden in Paradise and silk garments, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them garments to replace those that were burnt, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. You don't have to get you don't have to get angry. When you use something material in this world. It might, it might hurt you because you're a human being but your sadness must not go beyond a certain point.

00:34:10--> 00:34:37

You are human, so am I, you will feel sad sometimes but not beyond a certain point. You might cry sometimes tears are extremely healthy but only to a certain limit. And you don't question the decree of Allah or the wisdom behind what Allah has done you don't question it, you may understand it, you may not you just have hope that inshallah I will see the beautiful result of the summer that I am bearing right now, every one of us bears patients to set to a certain degree.

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

So Allah says,

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

These people who will be granted paradise and they will be given silk, clothing, silk clothing referring to Yes, silk but obviously of a different nature because the silk from the earth is not qualified to be present in the in Paradise, it will be something much, much higher. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about

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

Because the clothing will be just amazing. The clothing that we will clothe ourselves with in paradise will be just amazing something that we cannot really describe words are used to describe it but what will be there is far beyond these words. Allah says they will be reclining there in on adorned couches they will not see there in any burning sun or freezing cold the weather will be absolutely you know, like we say climatized

00:35:31--> 00:35:49

amazing just according to your liking, you know neither hot nor cold, no burning sun and no freezing cold layer on a fee Hashem sun wala zum zum hurry is referring to some serious cold that you have, you know the biting cold is some hurry.

00:35:51--> 00:36:20

So Allah says they will be reclining vain. It reminds me of the beach in Langkawi. So panula reclining on the no but somehow when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala gentlemen, your reclining will be clean, it will be beautiful, it will be a something that is truly enjoyed to the degree that you have no worry thereafter, when you go on a holiday in the dunya you enjoy it. But at the back of your mind, you dreading going back home and back to work right?

00:36:21--> 00:36:53

In general is not reading in the back of your mind because it's everlasting. Imagine everlasting, there's a very big difference between the two here, you can go in this world to enjoy whatever break you want, whatever holiday you want, at the back of your mind, you're still worried about going home. And when you're driving home, I'm gonna have to clean I'm gonna have to cook I'm gonna have to do this. We're gonna have to sort out this you're gonna dust this I wonder if the GIS is leaking. I wonder if it's this so many things. Even though you're coming back from a file from a 10 star holiday, you might be a wealthy person, by the back of your mind, you've got these worries, these

00:36:53--> 00:37:41

concerns and so on. with Allah in general, they you will be reclining like what a beautiful, you know, situation no thoughts that are follow up negative thoughts? Not at all, nothing at all. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us when Allah says and mirror above them, are its shades, the shades of what the shades of these beautiful trees of Paradise the shades of gin, and Allah says its fruit to be picked will be lowered in compliance. Imagine you have these beautiful trees, you look at them and the fruit that's in your mind will suddenly be seen. And as you're looking at it and you you want to reach out to it and it reaches out to you. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, may Allah grant

00:37:41--> 00:38:11

agenda to fill those. These are beautiful descriptions. We're just waiting to see this place. And we're just waiting to be there. But let's not wait without reading salah and and so on. With this. While we're waiting, we've got to fulfill our Salah. We've got to dress appropriately. We've got to cut our bad ways we've got to seek Allah's forgiveness. We've got to try our best for the sake of Allah. Wherever we faltered, we need to seek Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness for indeed Yes, we are human and Allah knows that. But at the same time Allah says I'm most forgiving seek forgiveness before you die.

00:38:12--> 00:38:55

Then Allah says, and they will be circulated among them vessels of silver cups, having been created clear as glass how, I don't know. That's the description of Allah these vessels and utensils that will be used will be absolutely amazing. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says clear glasses made from silver, of which they have determined the measure. How is silver clear? I actually don't know. So I have to wait to get to gender and then we will talk about it again inshallah and we will say Oh, these are the glasses. Well, I wish I could have just brought one and passed around here to say Okay guys, this is the glass that's going to be in general but if that was the case, it means it's

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

available in the world people might not like it. But Allah says you will love it. There's absolutely no way that you're not going to like it. Then Allah says

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

the measure of it is right with me right now what happens you know at home you have glasses of different sizes, a small one, medium one and a big one and one heavy one and one light one. There's a specific glass that you like to drink from Why? Because you know the amount of water in there is exactly what I want. And it feels so nice to hold it to drink. I'm sure it happens to all of us. That there's a specific cup that you want to drink from sometimes with a mug a specific one and people know it that's your mug. You know, people know that that's your glass, you know that's the one you want. And I know of homes where sometimes you know father B and mother they they have their

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

own mug such that or cups that when the table is being laid, they actually put a different type of a cup or a glass for father Bay. For example. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us this is something so this word when Allah says that he knows the measure, it is so unique because Allah subhana wa Taala is telling us we know how much you want

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

To drink as well. We know how much you're going to want. So these glasses will be different sizes yours is going to be exactly as you would have loved. Amazing my mothers and sisters, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says they will be given to drink a cup of wine whose mixture is of ginger. How I have no clue. Trust me I don't like Jinja but in general I'm gonna love it. I know why because that's a lot that's a ginger from Jenna. You know, here ginger Subhanallah just maybe a small little bit. But give me those ginger health drinks no matter how healthy they are, trust me No way. And I'm sure I'm not the only one but at the same time. When we talk about Jenna remember when Allah talks

00:40:42--> 00:41:23

about something in general, it's going to be the best. There's no way that you are going to compare or say that you know what? This is negative. No negative comparison. It's going to be positive. Wow, this is amazing. Imagine it reminds me of someone you know when I was young I knew I didn't like avocado and now it's like one of my favorite Mashallah, why because we're older we're a little bit wiser we know what's healthier, etc, etc. And we're lucky because it grows on trees. Now you talk about it across the globe and getting rich man rich man, it dropped so much in the driveway. We get sick of it. So my mothers and sisters you know long time ago people will tell you try this and you

00:41:23--> 00:41:51

say not for me try this not for me. No, no, no. And then there comes a day Oh, I didn't know it was so nice. Mashallah. Well, we told you to try it. So Subhanallah when it comes to Jannah Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us things that we perhaps might not have even thought of drinking but the name would be similar the taste will be absolutely awesome. Totally different. Absolutely to our liking. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from these routes. Verse number 18. Allah says

00:41:52--> 00:42:24

let's read 17 and 18 together and they will be given to drink a cup of wine whose mixture is of ginger from a fountain within paradise named Sal Sabine. Wow. Now you know what sells a bill means seltzer bill is a fountain in general. It's a fountain in paradise. And from that fountain you're going to be having beautiful juice. Whenever you see ginger think of seltzer be wow slash Allah and beautiful juice that which you will simply adore Sal Seville. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:42:26--> 00:42:52

xinja vielen. And he speaks of cell civilian. And then he says they will sick, they will circulate among them young boys made eternal when you see them, you would think them as a beautiful scattered pearls. Now there is description and discussion as to who exactly these young boys are, who will be serving us in general, for example, some duration say these are the children of those who lost their children while they were

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

young before they were

00:42:56--> 00:43:16

mature before the age of puberty. And some say no, these are just created by Allah subhanho wa Taala for service, and they won't be exactly as we would afford them humankind but they will be boys that Allah has created as servants there in whatever way he wishes. So there are different opinions as to exactly who they will. I usually like to say that you know what, let's go there and then we will find out exactly what happens.

00:43:19--> 00:43:40

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when you look there in Paradise, you will see pleasure, and great kingdom. No matter which direction you look, you will see a lot of goodness, you will see so much of goodness in every direction, upon the inhabitants will be green garments of fine silk and brocket.

00:43:42--> 00:44:08

And they will be adorned with bracelets of silver. And their Lord will give them a purifying drink. You notice what Allah is saying he's actually telling us again, what he's going to give us. And then it will be told and this is the last verse that I'm going to be reading for today. It will be told to them it will be said to them. Indeed this is for you a reward and your efforts has been appreciated a lot of work.

00:44:10--> 00:44:44

In Canada, welcome Jessa and this is your reward, my beloved worshipers alone will say and indeed whatever you've done has been appreciated. You went through you endured you read your Salah, you were patient, you had supper, you struggled you went through the struggles for our sake, you didn't lose hope you had hope up to the last minute you died smiling, knowing that you're going to go to a better place. Well here is the better place Allah says this is the reward for you. My mothers and sisters We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with gender. This life is difficult. It's not going to be easy. It's very, very difficult, but it's a test just like different examinations

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

are extremely difficult. To be honest with you. We want gender in return the biggest price can only come with the biggest of tests. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us through the tests of this world And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all genda to fill those May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless those who have passed away

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

From the oma And may Allah subhanahu wa Jalla grant cure to all those who are sick and Ill are Sol Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad
