We'll be learning Amina shame on your ad. bs mean.

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

Excellence presents jewels from the Holy Quran, a series of lectures by Mufti Ismail Ibn Musa menke.

00:00:44--> 00:00:51

Lecture 11 to 12 and half to 13 and three quarter a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:52--> 00:01:34

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad Ali Al Ameen. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi etchmiadzin obey. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala complete blessings and salutations be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all his companions and all of us may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us in this holy month of Ramadan, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all improvement in every single way. I mean, honorary Lama, beloved brothers, dear sisters and listeners, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the one who is intelligent in the opening verses that we read tonight. And Allah speaks of Oulu, Al Bab, those who

00:01:34--> 00:01:44

have brains, those who have intellect, who are they? So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them in this Quran and he says alladhina you funa bR

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

Boone, Alameda one levy levena Yoshi, Luna

beam,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

Allah.

00:02:23--> 00:03:01

Allah says they are the ones who fulfill their promises, they do not break their covenant that they made to Allah subhanho wa Taala they understand that they have made a pledge to Allah in terms of the man and they will fulfill the commands and stay away from the prohibitions. And they will not be from amongst those who sever relations and ties that Allah has asked to maintain rather they will be from amongst those who strive and struggle to maintain the relations that Allah has commanded to maintain. May Allah make us from amongst those who can solve our family issues. And may Allah make us from amongst those who can unite the oma May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to do

00:03:01--> 00:03:29

that. Then he continues to say that they are the ones who bear lots of patience and they are the ones who engage in Salah who fulfill their Salah, the five daily Salah extremely important, they have so much benefit in sha Allah one day May Allah grant us the opportunity to go through some of the benefits of Salah not the spiritual ones. Those are definitely there but we'd like to go through the medical benefits of Salah May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us that day inshallah.

00:03:30--> 00:04:06

We need to be steadfast with Salah because those who are intellectuals, those who are intelligent, Allah says they establish their Salah, they give alms to the poor, they give to the poor, in secret and in open so that they can encourage others when they give in secret. They give it because they want only Allah to know and when they give it in public, they give it with the true intention but to encourage others to save, he could give we can also give in sha Allah May Allah make us from amongst those. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them as those who shall earn a very, very good abode in sha Allah, may Allah grant us all agenda and the opposite is also mentioned where Allah subhanho wa

00:04:06--> 00:04:11

Taala says, One Latina poco nama Amara long will be

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

nothing are the owner in Kelowna, while

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

those who sever the relations who break the relations that Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded for them, what will be the outcome? Allah subhanho wa Taala says they will be cursed, May Allah not do that to us and they will have a very bad abode obviously in the afra they will not be in a good place. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a good place And may Allah safeguard us from destroying the relations that he has asked us to maintain. Thereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the vicar of Allah What is the meaning of Vicar of Allah when we say let's engage in Vicar? Yes, it does include the test we had that alila that Akira the name of Allah subhana wa

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah, Allah Akbar and so on, that is part of the dhikr of Allah, but more than anything, the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala means the consciousness, the remembering of Allah. Whenever there is a sin to be committed, someone remembers Allah that is the vicar of Allah and they don't commit the sin, they become

00:05:20--> 00:05:56

conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times, and from amongst those who remember Allah at all times, when there is something good to be done, Allah is remembered and through that, it encourages us to do the good It makes us do the good for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the vicar as well as the Quran. Why? Because the Quran teaches us what is right and wrong. Had we not known what was right and wrong, how are we going to? How were we going to engage in that which was right, and how were we going to abstain from that which was wrong. If someone told us to eat a banana, for example, and we didn't know what a banana looked like, we might go to the shops and buy an apple.

00:05:56--> 00:06:21

It's a fact and we might think it's a banana. The same applies when you don't know what is wrong. Then how are you going to abstain from that which is wrong? We first need to learn what is wrong are off to Shirley tea woman Lamia artificial coffee. One of the scholars has said that I learned what was wrong in order to stay away from it because the one who doesn't know what is wrong, won't even be able to stay away from it. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us that understanding so Allah says

00:06:22--> 00:06:32

Allah Vina Amano Toma in loco loco meaning Kareena Devi karela ito coma in

00:06:34--> 00:07:08

those who believe they achieve comfort of the heart through the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For definitely, it is through the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the heart can be comforted the heart will be at peace and that is May Allah subhanho wa Taala take away all the difficulties that we have in our hearts and minds and souls. Every one of us is going through different difficulties, different issues, different problems. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows your issues in mind. And he knows the issues of the whole oma May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all in our different problems and issues. Remember it is all a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala there is

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

nobody on this globe who does not have any problem at all. Allah subhanho wa Taala creates problems so that we can turn to Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the turning to him at all times. So that is as far as Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how the vicar has an impact on the heart. If you hear the dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala automatically it nourishes the the soul May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all after that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something very important but before I get to that, let me go further down the Quran and mentioned one verse of the Quran Allah says sonori him enough in fact he was he foresee Him

00:07:56--> 00:08:42

we will continue showing mankind the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the horizons and in themselves until there comes a time when they have made so many discoveries that they will find that the Quran is definitely the truth. What does this mean? This means the Quran has verses where scientific discoveries year after year will come to prove that what the Quran says is the truth. Let me give you one example. There was a time when people said the scientist said the sun does not move. And the Quran says why shunsui Tajiri the sun moves. The Quran did not discuss how much it moves, how it moves, but all the Quran says is the sun moves. So there were some people in the 50s and 60s

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

who said no the Quran has made a mistake now.

00:08:45--> 00:09:08

And the sun does not move later on science adjusted itself to say no the sun moves but very little well who said it moves a lot. The Quran just says it moves. It doesn't discuss how much it moves. But now science had to admit that yes, the Quran is the truth Allahu Akbar. In the same way. There are other examples one of the verses I'm reading now, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, our lamjao

00:09:11--> 00:09:22

amin Otto Rafi ha altova Do they not see that we come to the earth and we clip it from the edges, we clip the earth from the edges. That is the literal translation of this verse.

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

What is meant by clipping the earth from the edges. So the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu some of them said it means that there will be a large population and they will die. So we will notice people around us dying and that means the earth is being clipped from its edge and from the edges of the earth. Yes, that is also an interpretation later on the arrow Lama and mufa Syrian who went into the Tafseer also looked at the scientific discoveries. Take a look at the water content of the earth and the land content of the earth. And the ratio between the two. Now you have the depletion of the ozone layer and you have the defrosting of the icebergs and what is happening

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

The land is becoming less it's getting clipped so much so that I have read an article where it says Europe might be flooded Europe might be underwater after 100 years who knows Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us this year, if you read some of the articles of the news, they are saying that they are certain places where the sea is reclaiming the land that is the word being used. How is that happening here? Am I saying that don't they see Allahu Akbar that we come to the earth and we are clipping it from its edges making it smaller and smaller. That's one interpretation. Yet another interpretation. The Earth a long time ago, seemingly very, very distant.

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

If you wanted to travel from Mecca to Medina, an average time would take you eight days, average time, eight days, Allahu Akbar today, not eight hours, not even four hours. 30 minutes by aircraft Allahu Akbar 30 minutes by aircraft. In fact, within 24 hours, I can move and you can move to any corner or island of the globe with an aircraft and very soon it will be even quicker than that. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding communications are so advanced that nowadays What do we call the globe? Don't we refer to it as a global village? Allahu Akbar. We refer to it as a global village. Yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying we come to the earth and clip its edges

00:11:21--> 00:11:56

making it smaller and smaller in size. It stays the same, but it is now referred to as a global village. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding if I'd like to speak to someone in the Fiji Islands, I just have to pick up the phone here and now and dial a number and I will get through to them. This was impossible A long time ago. If we spoke about it, people would think we were mentally disturbed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding so there is a verse Then after that surah Rahim. Allah subhanho wa Taala commences it by mentioning why he has revealed the Quran what is the purpose and the aim of this Quran

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

kita

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

curry region as Amina

00:12:06--> 00:12:37

is Neela beam, the book we have revealed why in order to take people out of the darkness and bring them to the light, take them out of the paths of shavon and bring them to the one Serato Mr. Kim, the one straight path by the will of Allah by the will of the Arab but why does Allah say by the rule of law, because sometimes there are some people who can read the whole Quran to them, they won't bat an eyelid, whereas the Sahaba of the Allahu unlettered one verse, one verse made them cry, take a look at

00:12:38--> 00:13:17

one of the ark enemies of Islam. Prior to his acceptance of Islam, he had to read a few verses as a non Muslim, he read a few verses, he began to tremble were his Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Take me to him, I want to go to him and declare the faith now What a miracle with us. We read one completion after the other completion and we haven't even being tickled by the verses of the Quran. Allah do that to us. We need this yaqeen when someone reads the verses of the Quran, our hairs should stand and we should be feeling this is our book that came from Allah. Allah, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all the understanding, in fact, a verse that we read this evening,

00:13:18--> 00:14:02

in the next surah In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the protection of the Quran. And Allah says, in an app known as the Kra. We're in the hoonah Health info. I'm sure a lot of us know the meaning of this verse. We are the ones who have revealed this book and we will protect it we will keep it in its original pristine form. No matter what people try to do to it. There will always be some way or another that this plan will come back, Allahu Akbar. Now we memorize the Quran we should understand, if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and let's listen to this statement. It's a deep statement. If Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised that he is going to protect the Quran, then if

00:14:02--> 00:14:44

any one of us has memorized it, Allah has to protect us in order to protect the Quran inside us. That is something we must understand. So the how far they are not protecting the Quran. The Quran is protecting them. Allahu Akbar, this is one thing we need to understand and get straight. So each one of us don't we all as Muslims memorize even a portion of the Quran. I'm sure every one of us knows Surah Fatiha. All of us know superciliousness. All of us probably knows what we'll cover Alhamdulillah so to a certain degree, Allah has used us also to protect this Koran. Let's thank Allah for that. And let's make an intention to try and memorize one verse a day so that at least

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

through the Baraka of that learning of the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we will be protected. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on, to make mention of the fact that every time he sends a prophet and we spoke about this a few days back, he sends a prophet

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

In the language of the people that he that Prophet is sent to, there is no prophet who requires an interpreter.

00:15:09--> 00:15:48

In in Albion is an economy lubaina home, we have only sent prophets or we have not sent prophets except in the language of those whom they were sent to. So that the issues can be manifest and clear. You know and I know that when there is a lecture in our language, we understand it and it has an impact on us when there is a lecture in another language that has to be interpreted half of its spirituality might be lost just through the interpretation Allah says here lubaina home one of the reasons why it is important to know the language of the people you want to address is so that you can make clear to them what is in your heart and the message that you have to deliver you deliver it

00:15:48--> 00:16:01

in the best language, simple language which everybody can understand and it will be appealing inshallah to everyone May Allah subhanho wa Taala beautify for us the message of the Quran so that it can get to our hearts and we feel like practicing upon it, I mean,

00:16:03--> 00:16:14

then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how those who are ungrateful Allah will take away what he has given them. What is going on bucola

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

Shaka

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

wala cafaro in

00:16:26--> 00:17:02

the declaration of Allah subhanho wa Taala anyone who thinks Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he has for what she has for what they have been given for the level, the status the spouse, the family, they were brought into the financial level, the level of health. If anyone thinks Allah subhanho wa Taala for that Allah will grant them increase inshallah, but anyone who is ungrateful and starts comparing their lives with those who are better than them in terms of materialistic items. Allah subhanho wa Taala says such people are ungrateful. They don't realize that we have given them whatever we have decided to distribute to them. Rather than being thankful they want to now compare

00:17:02--> 00:17:38

and compete. It happens sometimes in marriage, where a person who's suffering a little bit of turbulence goes to tell their spouse, look at those people, they are so happy yet they don't understand those people are worse but they are good at covering up Allahu Akbar. So don't compare your situation with someone else's. They might be comparing theirs with yours at the same time and you don't know rather turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and say Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Callaghan, I praise you upon every condition and I seek refuge from the condition of those who will be entering the fire. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So it is important that we realize if we want to

00:17:38--> 00:18:17

increase in whatever we have, we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala how do we thank Allah not only by 10 but even by our deeds when we obey the commands automatically we are thanking Allah when we stay away from the prohibitions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Automatically we are thanking Allah Subhana Allah and Allah says, Whoever is ungrateful, even what we've given them, we will snatch it back, there is a possibility. In other big shady, if you are ungrateful, my punishment is severe May Allah subhanho wa Taala not punish us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about shavon and how shavon tells us, you know, Allah promised you a solid promise and you knew that Allah promises the

00:18:17--> 00:18:28

truth, and I made an empty promise, but you decided to come towards my direction, I did not have any control over you, besides the fact that I just called you and you answered wirkkala shavon

00:18:30--> 00:18:58

shavon will say the day when everything is complete on the day of piano, in Allah Kumar will have to come to come, Allah promised you a solid promise, and I just gave you a an empty promise and you decided to go against Allah commands for my sake. Why American Allah Allah means return in in the hour to confess, only falletta lamoni

00:19:01--> 00:19:18

He says, I had no control over you shaitan will tell us but I just called you and you came rushing towards me. So don't blame me blame yourself. Look at how shavon will disassociate himself from those whom whom who have followed Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us followers of shavonne.

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

Remember, this world is very short, rather than following our lusts and desires, we'd rather follow what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in the era we will have whatever we desire, but if we decide that we want whatever we desire here, then in the art era, we may not have what we desire. mallamma do that to us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the verses speaks about

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

the fact that he has blessed us with everything we want everything we need. The a, Allah has given us our noses, our eyes, our ears, everything Allah has given us so many gifts, everything around us, Allah has created for us and Allah Subhana Allah says, twice in the verses that we read Tonight, we're in

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

down near Matala, Isla

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

in

00:20:07--> 00:20:09

Santa Laval.

00:20:13--> 00:20:52

If you are to count or try to count the gifts that Allah has bestowed upon you, oh man, you will never ever be able to circumscribe them never, you won't be able to bring them together you won't be able to write them down impossible. Allah says definitely man is very oppressive, and they are very, very ungrateful, May Allah not make us from amongst those, let us turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala asked him to accept our good deeds and make a steadfast inshallah on the right path. And we must promise Allah subhanho wa Taala that the evil that we have been engaged in for so many years, we will put an end to it here and now for the sake of Allah. Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter

00:20:52--> 00:20:55

speaks about Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam This is turati Brahim.

00:20:56--> 00:21:20

After Surat Al Haig, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about him Allah is salat wa salam. And Allah says he left his family members in Makkah. At the time when it was barren. There was nothing It was an empty Valley. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of a certain dose of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, he says robina neo ki masala

00:21:23--> 00:21:26

meenan Sita huie la

00:21:29--> 00:21:29

mina

00:21:30--> 00:22:19

de la la mesh boo Oh alive left my family there so that I can come and obey you so that I can go out for your sake and I can earn your pleasure through worshiping you according to your instruction. So therefore, I asked you yeah Allah. Let the hearts of the people inclined towards this place towards which place talking of macaroon macaron, and grant them with Tamara Grantham with fruits with vegetables with crops at all times. Yes, this two hours for his family members, but for anyone who came there after that, what about us? Can't we feel the response of this? That it is positive, everyone's heart inclines towards Makaton, mocha Rama if I were to tell you that you know what for

00:22:19--> 00:22:47

500 grands, we can go to Makkah I'm sure the whole machine would be empty here because we would all be gone there. Alhamdulillah everyone's heart if it was cheap Alhamdulillah we would all be there. Our hearts are there right now as we speak. May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us there again and again. And may He make us from amongst those who when we go there, we can promise Allah subhanho wa Taala to turn to him and we don't go there and disgrace ourselves and come back the same criminals we were religiously, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all.

00:22:48--> 00:23:00

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about a very important issue regarding those who are oppressors. The lesson is for the oppressors. And for those who have been oppressed. Or Allah.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

Have orphenadrine

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

Vani moon in

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

Leo, Tasha, Sophie.

00:23:16--> 00:23:54

Don't ever think Allah has forgotten about those who are oppresses. They might oppress, but Allah has given them respect up to a certain day face to face, they shall be dealt with Allahu Akbar. So Allah tells us the oppressors. Watch out. If you keep on oppressing, remember, it's not that we have forgotten about you, but we are giving you this fight. One day we will deal with you. When that day the fixed appointed time comes and Allah is telling those who are oppressed. Don't worry about those who are oppressing you one day we shall deal with them. So the lesson is for both men, Allah subhanho wa Taala can understand acceptance. After that. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in fact, it

00:23:54--> 00:24:13

is after tsunami Ebrahim. Allegiant is referring to the rocky lands. It is said that these are the rocky lands of Petra, in the southern part of Jordan, Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed the people there, and Allah makes mention of it here. But in Surah 200, Allah speaks of the enemy he believes again, and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

thereafter

00:24:16--> 00:24:35

that the people of Egypt had belied the messenger and then we destroyed them. And after that, at the end, there is another very, very important statement Didn't I say moments ago that Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue showing us signs within ourselves and in the horizons. Listen to another verse, or Allah Cardinal

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

naka de casado cabina yaku The address is to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know that the statements made against you by your enemies. The statements made against you by your enemies, is narrowing your chest

00:25:01--> 00:25:43

What does that mean? Do you know that lately more recently, the some of the doctors have gone into a certain study the study of cholesterol, and the angina attacks that people suffer with. And there is a new discovery, it's not very difficult to actually find it on the internet, which states that cholesterol is not necessarily caused by food. But in fact, sometimes and one of the biggest contributing factors of high cholesterol, which is the tightening of the chest, you can feel it in your chest is stress. Allahu Akbar, when a person is worried when they have stress, what type of stress? Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being instructed, don't stress about what

00:25:43--> 00:26:23

they are telling you. You know that it's lies. You know, it is absolutely absurd what they are uttering, don't let it bother you. Don't worry, carry on. So this verse proves to us that stress is also a cause of high cholesterol. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us ask the doctors who are in this field, they will confirm that Allahu Akbar this medicine did not know until a few years back. But the Quran spoke about it that we know that those statements are tightening in your chest, the tightening of the chest What does it mean the thickening of the blood and that we nowadays call the severe of it and angina attack Allah protect us all. So what is the solution? Do you think Allah

00:26:23--> 00:26:28

subhanho wa Taala can leave us without a solution? He says For step behind the Arabic our

00:26:30--> 00:27:10

God in praise Allah on every condition Don't be upset Don't be angry thank Allah for everything he's ever given you goodness comes towards you thank Allah something you might regard as evil before you thank Allah it could have been worse it was tailor made for you bear Saba definitely suffered is an act of worship. Suffer is such a such an act of worship that Allah says in Allah Hamas savarin allies with those who bear sobre when can you base only when you've got a problem? Which means if you have a problem, Allah chose you especially to engage in a huge act of worship that will get you close to him had it not been for that problem. You would have never ever been able to gain closeness

00:27:10--> 00:27:51

to Allah through this Ivana Saba Allahu Akbar. So we must not stress when something that we feel is bad befalls us. We must thank Allah Allah, I thank you for giving me this opportunity to engage in some of the best of creation engaged in software, who are we? Allahu Akbar. So Allah says, praise Allah on every condition. That is the first solution. The second one, find yourself in the position of servitude as much as possible. Why the position of servitude I told you, there is some medical benefit for the Salah look, Allah has brought you here today already one of the points. So Jude is the only posture that a human being can easily get into where the brain is lower than the heart. So

00:27:51--> 00:28:31

the oxygenated blood that flows that is pumped from the heart up into the brain in order to get into the rest of the organs of the body so that those organs can function correctly. That oxygenated blood needs absolutely no effort to get to the brain, because gravity pulls it down. Because the brain is now below the heart. Allahu Akbar Kabira That is why we should be taking a little bit longer Institute, instead of saying Subhan Allah, Allah thrice, let's say five times inshallah, the other two will help us in a different way. Allahu Akbar. Look at how now we are nodding our heads because now we can see the medical benefit, isn't it? Allahu Akbar. There is there are a lot of

00:28:31--> 00:29:09

benefits of sujood Allah Hi. So yes, when I say that is the only posture that you can easily get into. Because they are other postures but quite difficult. Like for example, if we had, say, for example, a stress room and this is just imaginary, obviously, where we had little strings hanging from the top and every time people were stressing, they were tired from their legs so that their brains could now be below their hearts. Allahu Akbar. It sounds so silly and foolish. But anyway, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us as a gift Salah This is why Salah is a gift it will help me more than anything else. let's engage in our five Salah day. Allah subhanho wa Taala make that easy

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

for us.

00:29:10--> 00:29:43

After that, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the bee in Surah canal and the message of surah tunnel is very very interesting. The be as small as it is as small as it is. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how it is inspired where to go. And do you know when you have a hive and there is a queen bee in the Allah inspires the queen bee which flower to go and get the nectar from it is haram in the Sharia of the bees. It is haram for any bee under the under the

00:29:45--> 00:29:55

the queen to go to another flower besides that which the Queen has dictated And do you know what is the punishment of any bee that decides to derive

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

meaning any any bees

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

decides to derive any form of comfort and benefit from a flower besides the flower that that particular Queen has decided, is executed. That is why if you go and those who study that the bees will notice if you go to any hive, you will notice at the bottom of the hive dead bees, what was their sin, they came back with nectar of another flower because Allah subhanho wa Taala has inspired the bee for our sake. Allah says, Allah No, honey is different colors, you will find the honey different flavors and colors naturally from Allah subhanho wa Taala is inspiration to the queen bee and any bee that goes to another flower and for your information. A bee derives a lot of pleasure

00:30:47--> 00:31:28

when it goes to extract the nectar from a flower. So if it looks at another flower besides the flower that it is supposed to be looking at, and goes and derive pleasure from that flower that is not its own flower, it is executed Allahu Akbar Kabira I don't want to call it the Zener of the bee. But in actual fact, if we think about it, it is deriving the benefit from a different flower. May Allah grant insan that understanding when Allah has created someone pure in terms of a spouse for us, we must never ever look elsewhere. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala even amongst the bees, there is a lesson that he has kept for us. Allahu Akbar Kabira look at these examples in the Quran.

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

Amazing. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that here in this Quran. And in fact in Surah tunnel, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about so many favors that he has bestowed upon us and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us also that you know, your children are actually

00:31:44--> 00:32:00

a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, Allah says that there are some people that get upset when they are informed of a female child. That is haram. Absolutely haram listen to what Allah says in the verses we read tonight. What either Shira had Oh,

00:32:08--> 00:32:50

when one of them is given the good news, the glad tidings of a female child, you find that their faces become darkened and they become angry. Why do I have a good luck? Allah safeguard us, whatever Allah has given you. He knows what he has given you. We need to thank Allah for the girl child, the girl child brings about much more Baraka than anything else. Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam has stated that those who have three girls and in some narrations more in some generations less and look after them and get them married off to good good spouses. Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant in Ghana solely because they have looked after somebody else's property Allahu Akbar, some meaning

00:32:50--> 00:33:35

girls who will be going elsewhere. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us that understanding. Then Allah says Yata wa minakami Zoo, Emma boo Abu Dhabi, such people, they want to hide away from the community. They are shy of the fact that now they are fathers or mothers of a female child so they want to hide away from community so that when people ask you what you got a boy or a girl, you don't have to say oh, I've got a girl Allahu Akbar. It is haram in the Sharia to even feel a little bit sad. When you are told that there is a girl child rather we should be so so happy Allah subhanho wa Taala can bring lots and lots of goodness and even get us through to Jenna with that may Allah grant

00:33:35--> 00:33:43
