Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious most Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen babina Stein also Lee what will suddenly mala Mia you will mursaleen abena Wahhabi been watching Amina Muhammad Ali Abdullah, Allah, Allah He was happy.
All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon our Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of creatures, May the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon all his companions and followers May Allah make us from amongst them and our offspring, I mean, on arola dearest brothers and sisters in Islam,
we surahs that we read this evening are very, very important and as we draw to the end of the Quran, the surah has become shorter and they become many. So inshallah tonight I will go through a few points of every surah with the idea of presenting the gist and the message of the surah though at times and in fact, in most cases, the messages are more than one. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us understanding.
Firstly, surah Allah, which we had spoken about last night, also known as hammy as such, in that surah there is one point I'd like to raise and that is
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was instructed to warn the people of Quraysh that if they turned away, then they should be warned of a similar punishment of that which had got to add and some mood and so on. They were to be warned of it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the previous surah, which is similar to LogMeIn if you recall, the one man who had believed from amongst the people around he warned his people and the family of frown of the same thing. Identical message he warned them yeah call me in me haha
michelada be comin
Oh my people. I am warning you of what had happened to the previous armies like odd and some mood and those who were previous to us. This man is wanting his people in the next surah Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Quraysh and what the the verses that were read out to the people of grace whom in turn put their fingers in their ears when they heard the verse because they knew very well that yes, the punishment of the Almighty if it is to come, there will be nothing that will stop it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in Surah facilites or hammy massage de for in our all those
tokens or equally.
tsunami veiny a de moi means
all OSHA buena
If you are to turn away, be warned of a similar punishment to that of art and some mood. When the messengers came to them and gave the message they began to say if our boy wanted, he could have sent an angel in order to deliver the message. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant every single one of us understanding that those who remind us to do good are human beings. Those who prohibit bad in our midst are human beings. It is not worth our while to pick on minor issues that a person may be tested with and say that means he is a write off. Mr. Molokini is one of the Imams of the mother hibbett he said mommy hadn't and this he said when he was in the role that Wilma Baraka in Al
Madina, munawwara he said, Ma'am, and I hadn't in a while you do mean calamy what you do in LA Sahaja sobre sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, There is none on Earth, except that we need to take some of what they've said and leave some other part of what they've said. If you recall last night's verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala praise those who listened to everything but only allowed to filter in that which is correct.
And beneficial, and the family company has made an exception. And he says the sole exception to that is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We take everything he has said and we follow it blindly. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. If we have not comprehended it, it does not mean it is incorrect. It means our comprehension is guilty of not being able to understand what is right and wrong. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us taqwa and the man and may we be from amongst those who can follow the messenger without questioning. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next surah, which is named after one of the most important aspects of this
Deen and one of the most important social aspects, political aspects. And, in fact, from many angles, it is one of the most important issues the issue of shuara and consultation. An entire surah of the Quran is named after shuara which means the consultation
in order to explain the importance of consultation, Allah subhanho wa Taala has named the entire surah consultation and May Allah grant us the importance in this surah he speaks of unity and the bad effects of disunity. And the fact that if you dispute and argue about something, let Allah subhanho wa Taala as laws hit the Koran, the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let that be the judge. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, one master last tomb fee me shy
mu Illa, LA, whatever you have disputed in the final judgment should be left to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That means the command of Allah is final at times in our homes or in our businesses, or in our day to day lives. We have disputes with people and we tend to resolve or we tend to come to a judgment that disagrees with what the Quran and the Sunnah says, If that is the case, then we stand to lose, because we are going to be answerable definitely we are all answerable for our actions, our deeds and including our decisions and the way we judged when matters arose between us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is warning us. Yes, when you consult also, there might be certain disputes.
Remember that the overriding factor is the rule of Allah subhanho wa Taala even when it comes to marriage and divorce, in fact, not coincidentally, towards the end of surah two Shura Allah speaks to Hannah who Allah of the favours upon men, some have been granted male, some have been granted female children. Some have been granted both male and female children, some have been granted nothing at all. And why did Allah mentioned this in Surah, two Shura, some of Assyrian who have spoken about the connection of the title of the surah with the contents of it have said because it is important to consult even on marital issues.
It is very important to consult regarding your own children, what should I do with them, consult those who have experience and be be thankful that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you people around you who can give you sound and solid advice. It is very important to know what type of people to go to and for that reason, in the same surah Allah describes of Allah what Allah what type of people you should go to. It's no coincidence. Allah says, well, Gina J. Tawny bo nakaba me once
those who abstained from major sin, they abstained from Kabira gunas from the major sins and they abstain from immorality. And whenever they are angry, they are quick to forgive. Whenever they are angry, they are quick to forgive Allah subhanho wa Taala says, continuing the qualities of those who engage in consultation as well as those who should be consulted. While levena Stan Jabu Leon
those who have answered the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala and have established their five daily Salah in the best manner. Those are the ones who consult each other while I'm sure.
Another quality of those whom you should consult is that they themselves also consult others and they are always found consulting and they spend from the wealth that Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted them so sudo to Shura is a complete surah Allah subhana wa
Allah makes mention of several aspects of consultation and how important it is in our day to day lives. And even in our social lives, even in business decisions we'd like to make the Allah has taught us that there are two things you need to look at. Once you know this person is genuine, that is the first thing the person is genuine towards you. So you do not go and consult with an enemy or you want to open a business and you go to your competition and you tell them what should I do, they will look at you scoff and laugh and they may give you advice that they know will result in your downfall because of the competition. So Allah subhanho wa Taala what we are taught regarding sure
is, firstly, you should know that this person is genuine. Secondly, make sure he or she is qualified in the field you are asking in the field of the consultation. So if you are for example, wanting to marry someone, ask those who are closest to you, your own parents are the most important to consult. If you have done it without consultation of parents. Most probably it may not work unless they have no Islamic reason to deny and stop you. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has reminded us that make sure this person is qualified when it comes to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was qualified in absolutely everything. So the Sahaba of the Allah one home could only see his view. And yes, the
other Sahaba were also asked their view in order to show us later on that even the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam were asked at times for their view, this is the importance of consultation. So if we are making a decision for example, regarding building, we cannot go out and ask for example, and accountants regarding how many bricks we need and so on.
The same applies to a plumbing problem, you cannot find the dentist and say look my pipe is best What should I do and so on. So this is very easily understood. But where we lack is not something that is very clear. But those things especially the social consultations, we lack in that we don't know who is genuine we don't know who is closest to us. And for that reason, we go against our own parents and the times we decide to divorce our whole family just for the sake of marrying one person not realizing that a few months down the line we are going to need that entire family to help us come out of that mess we are in May Allah not do that to us subhanho wa Taala so this is the
importance of Shura. Shura is also applicable when there is a dispute where there is divorce For example, we need to consult it is haram for a man to just stand up and issue and utter the words of Allah. So many questions come to the llama such and such a person has dished out all the bollocks It is like taking a revolver with three bullets, shooting it straight into somebody's chest and then saying are they still alive? What a foolish question. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So we need to learn that even these issues should only happen through consultation. And once we've consulted we should try and solve the matters first, also after divorce, the issue of child custody
is very important we should know that during or if there is a dispute in that regard. Allah is ruling stance and the last decision is final. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not keep in our hearts, any reservation whatsoever. When it comes to adopting his rules, I mean, and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he has commanded all the previous nations not to disunite He says, sha Allah Mina Dyneema wasabi know how Allah de
la cama de
la musawah Isa tiempo de nawala
woofie we have ordained upon you, that which we have ordained upon those before you such as musala is Salatu was Salam ala Salah Salatu was Salam Mahalia salatu salam Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, what was that which we ordained upon them? To stand steadfast to uplift this Deen and to establish this Deen and never to disunite regarding Deen? Today the oma is in shambles. Because we have gone against that very Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala any small issue, immediately we blow our trumpets and immediately we cause the biggest splits in the Muslim ummah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the power to love everyone who touches law ilaha illa Allah
The power of the Shahada must make us love everyone who watches it. The Hadith says mancala La ilaha illAllah.
Whosoever shall utter truly the kalama La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will indeed intergender by the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who are we to create dispute and disunity in the Muslim Ummah? Yes, where there are differences of opinion, we may discuss them intellectually, that should not result in disunity of the oma. And in fact, the times there can be two opinions that are correct. Two opposite opinions that are correct. And there are several examples of that in the Sharia. One of them is during the time of the Battle of Bonnaroo Colaba, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam commanded the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu now you saw
Leonardo como la sala de bonito, none of you should read salatu wa salam until you get to bonobo Eva. Some of the Sahaba understood that the time of Salah on that day is delayed so they should not read Salah even if the time of acid was expiring. The other half of the Sahaba understood that this only means a rush to bunny coryza. But you should read us in each time. Some of them read Salah the others did not read Salah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam confirmed that those who said read your Salah will correct those who said do not read your Salah will also correct because both of them intended to follow Him and not to go against his command. So why don't we understand that Salah
being a pillar of Deen when there was dispute about it, it did not result in disunity of the Sahaba rather, it resulted in the solving of the matter with the words and the Mubarak mouth of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam wherein he said, Don't worry both of you are correct. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us understanding. I've just given you one example. Let's move on to the same surah Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the qualities of those whom we should consult and those who consult one another. They are the true believers and Allah says, whenever they are wronged and oppressed, they have the right to revenge. But feminists,
Whosoever forgives and resolves definitely the reward of such a person is with Allah subhanho wa Taala How beautiful is this put in Surah assura. The reason is, we all need to think sometimes someone oppresses us, it is worth our while to remain silent and forgive them.
If a person has harmed us of 100 grands, we might sometimes go out to retaliate in a manner that it will cost us 100,000 grants through court cases and so on that was very foolish. Rather we say Allah you deal with the issue or a higher level Yeah, Allah forgive them. Yeah, Allah I have forgiven them and continue content with your life, rather than bogging yourself down in something. This is why Allah says if you forgive, no matter what it is, if you forgive, it is better for you. Though you have the right to seek revenge and retaliation, if you forgive, it is better for you. And may Allah make it make us understand that sometimes we need to weigh the pros and cons sometimes it is not
worth our while to retaliate and revenge. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring forth the Muslim Ummah as one united peace in sha Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala after that speaks in the next surah which is named after the gold adornments Zoho Zoo proof the beautification the gold adornments, Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah speaks of the comparison between the dunya and the archaea, the beautification of the dunya the beautification of the Sierra Zuko, meaning the gold adornments Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Conan so much,
man in a blue team's
Whoa, whoa, Lee boo.
Jackie una was Rosa
thing Allah says, had it not been that all the people who would have become one nation and would have been united in disbelief. We would have granted every single one who just believes Allah says we would have granted them all the adornment of this world and Allah describes that adornment. We will
would have granted them as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, houses whose meaning the roofs of the houses would be made of silver, and they would have escalators also made of silver whereby they would ascend and they would have doors and beds also made of silver. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says we would have also given them gold adornment, but then Allah ends the verses by saying, Nay, that all is the adornment of this dunya those are provisions of this dunya and for those who are conscious of Allah, what is better for them is the archaea. What this means is, be happy and content with whatever Allah has given you. thank him and don't find yourself from amongst the disbelievers.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says if we had given everyone if we have given if we had given everyone, all the adornments of this dunya they would have collectively disbelieved in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala grants some more and some less and Allah does not give some and gives others after a lot of hard work and some are given without any effort at all. That is all the decision of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of these adornments and then he speaks of a person who gets so involved in the adornments that he forgets Allah. Allah says such people, we appoint a shave fan who will be his companion or her companion, those who are
engrossed and involved in the dunya they've dived in the dunya swimming and drowning in the dunya. Allah says all my
money, no blue
My name is Sabina cibona.
Those who have forgotten Allah subhanho wa Taala and his command those who have dived into the dunya those who have given the dunya preference over Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says he appoints a chiffon to be in the company of this person to guide the person to advise the person and this person will live his life or her life in a manner that he or she thinks he is right and she is right, not knowing that what they are thinking is totally wrong. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says what the homeless should do no man is Sabine una hermosa Dune, these chiffons
lead them astray, and yet they feel that they are on the right path. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us it is good to have wealth, with the intention of using it correctly. It is good to have wealth with the intention of using it on our family members and children and on the poor, as much as Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us but the minute that wealth gets into our heads, it becomes a curse upon us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not let that happen to us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, after that makes mention of Freetown and the fact that we round to was fooled by the dunya. And his arrogance and wealth led him to deny the truth. And Allah says do you know what he said to Musa
alayhis salam? He said, why didn't musala his Salam have gold bracelets? Going back to the gold adornments? He says, follow Allah. Allah He as we refer to the habit? Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala not send gold bracelets to musataha salatu salam so he could show us that he has more wealth than us. So if you don't have the attitude, if you have more than me, I'm going to listen to you. Sometimes we do have the same attitude. We only listen to those who have money. They say money speaks according to me. It has started screaming and shouting as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So we need to understand Yes, money is something very good if used in the correct
manner and the same money can be a curse, if we have used it incorrectly. Yeah, Allah is saying Brown's wealth led him astray. He began to boast, he says, in the same surah Allah says, when
he Kami. Kami.
kami sahuagin and de mi. t. f Allah Tomas.
Ron said to his people when he called them, don't you see that I own the whole of Egypt. Don't you see that? It's all under my rule. Don't you see that these rivers are flowing beneath me. Don't you see that I am the one whom you are supposed to be worshipping. Forget about this man Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam.
So that is what his wealth did to him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring us to the ground. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us humbleness to the degree that when we arrive on the day of the AMA, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes into play mantova de la hora.
Law whosoever humbles himself or herself for the sake of Allah, Allah will raise them inshallah in the dunya, as well as in the afra. And the opposite is also in the Hadith where Allah subhanho wa Taala has informed us through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, woman kabara are we stuck Bara? Wa hula, whoever becomes multicap dieren, proud and arrogant alone will drop them, it will result in their downfall. May Allah not do that to us. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of how Isa alayhi salatu was Salam is a sign of the AMA. He says, After speaking about Italia salatu salam wa in who Melissa de Sala
indeed rissalah his Salam is a sign of tiama. So do not be in doubt regarding the AMA. What is it that is assigned, when it comes to these Allah is Allah, we should all be aware, that is Ali Salaam is alive, He is with Allah and he is going to descend, close to p ama we are speaking of Jesus May peace be upon him, he is alive. And he is with Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is going to return to the earth prior to pm. As he returns he becomes a sign of the AMA. That means the AMA is now very, very close. So Allah has spoken of it in the Quran. The idea nice who are not Muslims believe that he Salah his Salam is dead. And they believe now to believe that he is not going to come back and
they say there is no evidence in the Quran to prove that. Here is the verse. Allah Subhana what Allah says in Surah Surah regarding the Salah his Salaam and we can pick up any Quran any translation, or in hula in Oman is definitely he is a sign of tiama a sign of the hour. And all the mufa Syrian have unanimously agreed that this is referring to the returning of re Salli Salatu was Salam on to Earth May Allah subhanho wa Taala make our offspring from amongst those who will be with ease Allah is Salatu was Salam in his army fighting against the gel, I mean, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives comfort to all those who believe in who do good deeds, the worshipers of Allah He
says, Yeah, and he bad enough.
oh my worship is on this day You shall not fear and you shall not be sad and Allah describes Jenna, that he is going to prepare that he has already prepared and He will give us in sha Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us origin with his mercy. Then the next era is named after the smoke a Doohan
bus of the Allahu anhu, who is a great professor has explained that this smoke is actually referring to the final day, when there will be a thick cloud of smoke above the people, some of the other mufa series such as ignoramus Rudra the Allahu anhu says that this was a prophecy of a smoke and the curse of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of drought against the people of forage and he says they saw that day already but the majority of them have a Syrian agree with a bus Ravi Allahu to say Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses everyone seeing for Turkey but yo Mata Ki sama ob Doohan, m ob wait for the day when the skies will have a clear thick cloud of smoke
in them and on that day it will cover the people yes ocean NASA that cloud will cover the people have been early, they will all utter that this is indeed severe punishment and they will make a banner chief
Lada in Mino Allah remove this punishment we are believers now. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will see
How can this be a reminder for them now? When we sent messages before to them and they said oh these people are mad. These messages are mad. And these messages have been taught what to say by others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us so that is the tucan that Allah subhanho wa Taala is speaking about. And again Allah subhanho wa Taala repeats very briefly the story of Messiah and around
Allah says and the point of highlight is Fatima Baka tala emo sama,
body The sky is deep.
not crying for the round, when the round was destroyed and all these people the skies didn't cry, nor did the earth cry. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, Let us all accept his command and be found on the right side of his law before it is too late and then we regret May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant the safety
then Allah subhanho wa Taala once again describes gender and gender in the same Surah Surah two Doohan moving on to the last surah that we read today. Surah Al jatiya, the kneeling, when one would kneel Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah describes how on the day of the AMA, a everyone will be found kneeling, all the nations will be kneeling, and they will be given their books. And Allah is going to say we were writing absolutely everything you ever did. Here are your books, take them, they will speak the truth. And Allah describes the saying, while in him okusama wanting one indeed to Allah belongs for Allah belongs the dominion of the skies and the earth everything belongs to
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah continue saying, ye omata poo Masato Yama Ed
know those who had followed falsehood will definitely lose the day the hour strikes.
What are our cola
jazzy you shall find every oma every nation, kneeling Cologne, toda Isla Geeta
each oma, each nation shall be invited to its books or to its book, the book that kept the record of the deeds of every single member of that oma and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, le oma to JSON Amoco coup.
On this day, you shall receive the recompense for your deeds for whatever you have done. You are going to get it today had an Akita buena, this is all
in house, which is going to bear witness against you with truth and with justice. May Allah make it easy for us on that day. Then Allah says as for those who believe, for levena
boom de la
Modi, as for those who believe Allah will allow them entry into his mercy, and the very next verse, Allah says
levena cafo as for those who have disbelieved. Flm takuna
me, they will be told, did our vs not come to you? Were they not recited to you what our verse is not recited to you, but you are proud you are arrogant and you disbelieved and you became criminals. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, may he make us from amongst the believers and May He grant us Jenna or sallallahu wasallam opelika ala nabina, Muhammad Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed, a shadow Allah, Allah elantras
