00:00:53--> 00:01:03

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mean All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala Lord of the worlds

00:01:05--> 00:01:17

wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ultramarine complete blessings and salutations be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us all.

00:01:19--> 00:02:02

Honor the rule ama beloved brothers dear sisters and listeners, Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us in that we have completed half of the Quran today. We have listened to half of this Quran insalata tarawih May Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us and May Allah subhanho wa Taala writers from amongst those who have definitely stood insalata tarawih for his sake, and who have fasted for his sake for definitely, in the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says those who stand for the sake of Allah expecting a reward and those who fast for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala expecting a reward, their reward will be none besides Jenna May Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

grant that to us.

00:02:04--> 00:02:46

In the verses that were read tonight we firstly completed Surah tonale. The surah that we spoke about last night where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mentioned a lot of his gifts that he has granted us and from amongst these gifts he speaks of the bee and he speaks of the honey coming from the bee and he says there is cure and she fell in that honey, and for this reason it is the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have a bit of honey we too should understand that we must give preference to honey over the ordinary sugar that we have in our cupboards. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to do that. It has chifa and it is part of the Sunnah and practice

00:02:46--> 00:03:12

of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Shiva meaning cure, cure from all sickness, cure from even some spiritual melodies May Allah subhanho wa Taala cure us from all types of sickness. Also in the verses we read tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the Quran in one of the sutras that we read tonight, also known as the luminol, Nima Shiva

00:03:15--> 00:03:51

meanie even in the Quran, that which We have revealed, we have revealed in it that wherein there is Shiva and cure for those who believe and there is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you find the person who is the Quran, a person who endeavors to understand the Quran, a person who even listens to the recitation of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant that person lots of mercy, the person will feel very, very soothed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala calm our hearts and minds I mean,

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in the opening verses that we read tonight.

00:03:57--> 00:04:07

He speaks of the commands in a nutshell, that Islam holds and the prohibitions in a nutshell, that Islam has prohibited in

00:04:10--> 00:04:11

anyone.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

Allah instructs us to uplift and uphold justice at all times to be just and fair at every single time. And Allah subhanho wa Taala asks us to be good at all times. And Allah subhanho wa Taala also asks us to reach out to those who are close to us those who are in need, when we say reach out, it does not only mean to give them wealth, any form of goodness from us to other people is included in this May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us good

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

May Allah make us torchbearers of this Deen so that wherever we walk, people can look at us as Muslim in and realize that the true picture of a Muslim is He who is helpful to entire humanity that Allah subhanho wa Taala benefit us all. And Allah subhanho wa Taala prohibits evil, immorality and he prohibits prohibits oppression, any form of oppression and transgression is prohibited by Allah subhanho wa Taala. All forms of immorality are prohibited by Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to understand this particular verse and put it into our lives for indeed if we put into practice just this one verse inshallah we will be putting into practice the

00:05:44--> 00:06:24

entire Deen Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us, and obviously when we say this what is included in the details of this particular verse? The whole beam is included, as we mentioned a few moments ago about meaning a few days ago about the person who guarantees the correct use of the tongue and the correct use of the private parts. Allah subhanho wa Taala will guarantee that person Jana, in fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says I stand as the guarantee My yoke Malema Bayonetta he he admin level, whoever can guarantee me the correct use of these two organs, I will guarantee him or her Jana in a nutshell that means whoever lives their entire lives,

00:06:24--> 00:06:40

according to the decree and Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala shall be guaranteed Jenna, Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us then regarding spending Allah subhanho wa Taala is drawing our attention to something Firstly, sustenance comes from Allah, we all know that

00:06:41--> 00:07:05

he is in control of entire sustenance. But if we become stingy, and we just want to amass the wealth, Allah tells us, whatever you've left in this world, when you die, it is going to go to someone else. It's not yours, somebody else's name will be written next week, as soon as you die. But whatever you've spent in the right cause whilst you are alive, your name was written next to that, ma.

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

The law

00:07:13--> 00:07:49

that which you keep with you is going to be depleted and that which you've deposited with Allah subhanho wa Taala shall remain and that is what is going to benefit you and help you in the era. This is one of the interpretations of this verse. So it's important that we spend in the path of Allah as much as we can. We spend even on our own family members, whatever we can, in fact, in Surah, Tulisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how to spend, and he tells us why la dee da da da Don't be extravagant. In and nobody Nakano

00:07:50--> 00:07:55

clean. Those who are extravagant are the brethren of shavon

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

shavon oneone Be careful.

00:08:00--> 00:08:06

And shavon is very, very ungrateful May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from those who are extravagant. So how should we spend?

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

Allah explains that a few verses later, and he says, or Allah tada Yeah, Dhaka mahalo Latin Illa Allah, Allah tada Soto, Columbus,

00:08:25--> 00:08:56

you should not be so stingy. nor should you be so generous that you give away your own basic necessities. You should strike a balance between the two. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to strike a balance between being stingy and being over generous to the degree that we give preference to others over those who are under our own guardianship. Now, one might ask what is the meaning of extravagance in the Sharia? It means to have to have what you need one off,

00:08:57--> 00:09:39

but it does not mean that if I buy a very expensive item, then I am extravagant know if I can afford it and hamdulillah the Hadith says Leah Mahabharata Rania matar Allah Allah, when Allah has granted you wealth, he would like you he would like it to be seen on you in your clothing and in other items that you have not out of pride, but out of thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala you are making use of what he has given you. And hamdulillah so to buy quality is not extravagance, but to buy quantity when it is not needed is extravagance. If you open your cupboard when you go home and you find 50 pairs of clothes, that's a waste, that's extravagance, even if those clothes are very, very cheap

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

and even if they are tatty and tone, it's extravagance, you will have something which you don't need at all. But if you have a number of pair of pairs of clothing which you need and you know you were and you make use of even if they happen to be very expensive for as long as you can afford it Alhamdulillah I have not stolen I have not begged the borrowed or stolen

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

hamdulillah it is good. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us complete understanding of this. Sometimes people see a person with a very expensive motor vehicle and they say look, that man is extravagant, not necessarily, even if you have little mini Coopers but you have 10 of them sitting it's a waste of time. It's a waste of money, you have not you are not going to use them. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala make us not from amongst those who are extravagant, rather we reach out to the poor and needy and we spend money on those we are meant to be spending on because by doing that, we will be depositing money in the bank of Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah, in the archaea, we will

00:10:37--> 00:11:12

find Janna as a result, one Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us man Ben Allah He must be done. When Allahu Allahu beighton whosoever builds a house a Masjid for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala will build for that person a house in Jannah. That means they've now deposited their wealth in the right direction. Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause that wealth to be multiplied by Allah multiply our wealth for us, and may He make us generous in the month of Ramadan. within the limits of the Sherry app that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed to us then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about

00:11:14--> 00:11:22

how every person shall come on the day of the AMA defending himself or herself yamata t colonna

00:11:23--> 00:11:36

to Jad in one of Siena, on that day, every soul shall come in front of Rob believes that he will general and each soul will be defending himself or herself.

00:11:37--> 00:12:20

Everyone will try and justify what deeds they have done. Now, in another verse also from amongst the verses we read tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes what the criminals shall say, who are the criminals. The criminals are those who did not engage in Toba before they died. They didn't engage in Toba. And they were arrogant. until the point of death they died. And then they reached Allah subhanho wa Taala with sins that they had not repented regarding. May Allah grant us all repentance, we don't want to be criminals. This is why Allah gives us opportunity after opportunity. And he reminds us so many times to say turn, it's not too late. every heartbeat speaks to us. If only we

00:12:20--> 00:12:48

can hear what the heartbeat is saying. Do you think this heartbeat is going to carry on forever? When you put your hand on your heart and you can hear it pumping? It's going to stop one day. It's a weak little organ which stops a few years down the line. It is telling us to to Allah I am going to stop one day. But we don't hear that because we are weak. We need to turn to Allah but is that in general? So the moody mean, what will they say on the day of piano? They will say regarding the books, man.

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

What is it with this book? This book that is here in front of us with all our deeds. It has not left a small thing or a big thing. Everything is recorded in this book Allahu Akbar. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala will say ikara kita Baca, Fabien FC can yo Malika Hacienda everybody will be told, read your own book, this book that is spread in front of you. Read it, for it is sufficient as evidence against you your own book, may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from amongst those whose books shall bear witness against them. There is a way of deleting what is in that book but only now whilst we are alive. At Evo Mina zombie Carmela Bella, the one who seeks forgiveness from a sin is

00:13:49--> 00:14:08

equivalent to the one who's never ever committed a sin in the past Subhana Allah, look at the mercy of Allah the one who seeks forgiveness from a sin will be equivalent to the one who's never ever committed a sin. Allahu Akbar more than that the Quran says in

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

our Amina amen Oh sorry.

00:14:20--> 00:14:53

Those who believe and do good deeds. Allah subhanho wa Taala upon their repentance will convert their bad deeds into good deeds. So when they come on the day of the AMA, they will see lots and lots of good deeds and Allah Subhana Allah will tell them didn't I promise you I will do this for you. Now lawmakers from amongst those, we've all done bad deeds. We need the hope in the mercy of Allah azza wa jal. These are the blessing nights of Ramadan, which are full of mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala we must turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala why elimine karma

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

destruction be upon the one who has done and has exited

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

month without having been forgotten or forgiven. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us all. Well, it's a month of softening of the hearts. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how the books will be placed before us and how all our deeds shall be recorded. As I said, if you'd like to delete those books, and we'd like to format the hard drives that we have, it's very simple. All we need to do engage in sincere Toba and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about

00:15:31--> 00:15:41

those who do bad deeds and then they turn to Allah How will Allah treat them at the end of sulochana Allah subhanho wa Taala says, some

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

back alley levena Emmylou abijah

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

de danika

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

in back me back Barbie,

00:16:00--> 00:16:43

the treatment of Allah subhanho wa Taala towards those who have repented and thereafter do good deeds and men their ways, is forgiveness for definitely Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving, Most Merciful. There we are. That is a verse of the Quran. The verses are full of mercy and notice the verses of mercy are repeating themselves on a daily basis. Have we ever come here any day and not heard a verse of mercy doesn't show us the trouble is that you will general wants to forgive us. But we need to turn to Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how to call the non Muslims towards Islam. How do we call them towards Islam?

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

oduro Ls Abby near me Kevin?

00:16:49--> 00:17:16

has an 87 when you call to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Call with wisdom and tact. Call with lots of wisdom and tact. Don't attack people and don't invite people negatively. Don't call people towards goodness in a negative manner. Call them in a positive manner so that they can look forward to it rather than feeling doomed.

00:17:18--> 00:17:34

Call people with wisdom will hikma and call them with good speech a good reminder an hour a bottle has Santa that reminder which is good. A good reminder not a bad reminder, not a negative reminder. And when you tackle them, what will

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

be lacking oxygen when you tackle them, tackle them with that which is the best May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance not only to deal with the non Muslims in this way, but even with the Muslim sometimes we are guilty of dooming people labeling people kicking people out of the fold of Islam. And yet Allah subhanho wa Taala has set aside a whole day to do that. Yama, Yama is a huge day where Maliki ami Dean the owner of day of judgment has set it aside for him to judge and we begin to become judgmental here in the dunya labeling this one and that one hating this one and that one calling this one outside the fold and this one inside the fold. That is a very very dangerous

00:18:18--> 00:18:44

trend that people are following Allah subhanho wa Taala unite this oma and may allow us to feel the Brotherhood Yes, we will have differences. But for as long as we are within the framework of Islam we must learn to tolerate one another and Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us thereafter in the next era, which is suited to this law. Allah subhanho wa Taala commences by making mention of that journey by night of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:18:45--> 00:19:01

wherein he was taken from a mosquito Haram in Makkah to Luca Rama, right up to a mosquito up to saw and from there he was taken up to the heavens in body and person and soul. He was taken up himself physically, may Allah grant us the understanding.

00:19:02--> 00:19:15

Now Allah makes mention of it. Suba Hanna lady la mirada de la mina al Masjid in her Amina Alma is good enough Shah

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

in

00:19:26--> 00:19:58

Allah speaks about the glory of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who took his slave on a journey by night from a mosquito harem to a mosquito aka PSA that is known as Elisa. That journey on land was known as Elisa from a mosquito acts are going up to the heavens that was known as El Mirage. And for this reason, we refer to it as Elisa, well Mirage, Allah Subhana Allah grant us the understanding, there are many lessons from me. Let me draw one lesson from the timing of the Mirage

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

happened after what was known as

00:20:03--> 00:20:44

the year of grief and sadness that year Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam lost his wife Khadija de vente de la barra catalana and he lost his uncle. And he went too far if and in part if he was beaten, and we've heard about how the children even threw stones at him in pif, and he did not complain. He did not complain about them. He made a dua for him to say Allah guide them they don't know. Or Allah guide my people, they don't know what they are doing. The melodica told him, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are prepared to destroy and crush this. These this group of people between the mountains just give us a command. He raised his hands. And he says Allahumma inni

00:20:44--> 00:21:26

ESCO in America Online complaining to you imagine the best of creation, raised his hands to complain. What was that complaint? The angels, everyone listening? What is the complex you want to say? He commands us to destroy them now we will destroy them. How can the best of creation complain about someone and we don't deal with those? He was already told. Tell us and we will destroy them by the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when the complaint came out, do you know what he says? Listen to the example Allahumma inni ash qu la Cava Guwahati online complaining about my weakness, my own weakness, I am weak and complaining about these people. Yeah, Allah you have placed on my

00:21:26--> 00:21:35

shoulders to deliver the message Allah, I haven't been able to deliver the message to these people. They haven't listened to me, Allahu Akbar. Allah guide them, they don't know what they are doing.

00:21:36--> 00:21:58

Obviously, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fulfilled the message he delivered it, but because he wanted them to be guided, and he really wanted that. That is why he was saddened when they threw stones rather than kissing them and destroying them. He made a dryer life you're not going to guide them guide their progeny go to die if today today, there is not a single citizen of life who's not a Muslim.

00:21:59--> 00:22:24

The Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding so for that reason, my dear listeners Let's listen to something when making a dua rather than just making a dua for destruction of anyone and everyone first try the dry Allah guide them first try the dry Allah guide them to Islam. Take a look at the Allahu anhu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it to Allah,

00:22:25--> 00:22:34

Islamic marine or La Grande strength to this Islam through the acceptance of Islam of either an organization who was almost

00:22:36--> 00:22:44

no sooner was that to me than this man coming to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam declaring a shadow La ilaha illallah wa

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

rasuluh

00:22:47--> 00:23:08

radi Allahu anhu accepted Islam so sometimes we need to make dua Allah guide the enemy to Islam, Allah soften their hearts to Islam and if you have not written guidance for them, then yeah, Allah deal with them in a manner that you feel fit Allahu Akbar, may Allah protect us from the evil plot of those who would like to plot evil against the Muslims and May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us all protection.

00:23:09--> 00:23:46

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala As I was saying, the timing of this Mirage, Allah gave it as a gift after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very patient. He was very patient, Allah gave him a gift to come up to Mirage, we learn from it something indirectly, and that is any one of us who is patient for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Somehow somewhere Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us a gift. He will open the doors of His mercy for us in the dunya or in the era or in both of them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness in both, and Allah subhanho wa Taala after that speaks about

00:23:47--> 00:24:02

being good to one's parents. And these verses come with in verses that are known as Al hikmah. The Wisdom Didn't we speak about wisdom moments ago? Now listen to the wisdom Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and there are many verses all in a in a sequence

00:24:04--> 00:24:08

wakaba buka Allah Budo in

00:24:11--> 00:24:28

any Santa Fe, Allah says, He declares that you shall worship none besides him. Don't associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala and you shall be good to your parents. Why do the two come together? It's very easy to understand. Allah created us.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

And he chose to people in order to bring us through them to this world. So Allah created us through some means. That means is a sacred means. And we need to respect the womb that gave birth to us. We need to respect our parents. This is the reason and that's why the Quran also speaks about those whose parents might not be Muslims, we are still meant to be very good to them and obey them in that which does not come out of the framework of the Sharia. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us obedient.

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

Children

00:25:01--> 00:25:42

and Allah says when they are old make dua for them. Make dua for them. Baku, dyrham, Houma Kamara, Bayani Savino, Allah have mercy on them because they looked after me when I was young. Had they left me alone when I was a little toddler, little baby and infant, I might have even died. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that. And Allah subhanho wa Taala also speaks about giving the those who are related to us remember when we give to the poor, the first circle is that of those who are closer to us, look at them, see if there are poor people from amongst them, reach out to them. And I prefer to use the word reach out because sometimes they

00:25:42--> 00:26:12

don't only want wealth, they want you to visit them to talk to them a good word to solve the family problems and so on. That is also goodness reaching out to your family members. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance. Then, within the verses, there are two very interesting prohibitions. Very interesting why normally Allah tells us don't do this and don't do that. But there are certain sins where Allah says, don't even come close to those don't even approach them. Not even from a distance. What are those?

00:26:14--> 00:26:30

What are those Xena in Canada, the first one I'm sure we've all understood it don't even approach Xena. Why don't approach the V eyes can be used as Spears of shape and

00:26:31--> 00:26:45

you know when you are going out hunting and you've seen a buck, and you've you've seen it running in front of you good looking back and you know you've got the spear set and ready and you release the spear you hit the back you'll run behind the back until you get it and slaughter it.

00:26:46--> 00:27:24

So the Hadith uses a similar example, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says watch your eyes. They are the spirit sometimes of shaytan if you do not lower your gaze, you might look at something and then your mind will not be at ease until you get the color May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. And Xena is described in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam I'm sure we've heard about it. Allah says don't even get close. May Allah forgive everyone And may Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us, keep us strong and protect us all. So that is the first sin Allah says don't even come close. What about the other one where Allah says Don't come close? Or Allah or

00:27:24--> 00:28:09

Abu Melania teamie don't even come close to the wealth of an orphan. When someone has died and there is an estate, don't think of stealing even one cent. Yes, the orphan child is used when we read this verse in Surah, or similar verse in Surah. Nisa, I remember mentioning that the orphan here is used because he or she is vulnerable, more so the female child, many people many people complain about how some who are meaning if you look at them, they appear to be so religious, they might lead five Salah in the masjid with jamara. But when it comes to the laws of inheritance, they begin to steal from their sisters and their mothers and their daughters and they tell them you know what you are

00:28:09--> 00:28:47

already given in the lifetime of the deceased. So now you have no shame, or they undervalue the property because they don't want to give the ladies we've spoken about this so many times because Allah has repeated in the Quran so many times here it is, Allah says, don't even come close to thinking about stealing from those who are vulnerable. When someone close to them has died. Allah Subhana Allah Allah protect us all. And after that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about how we should utter only that which is correct and good. While ah taco from Allah is Allah kabhi II don't even utter that which you don't have knowledge about. If you don't know something, say I don't know.

00:28:47--> 00:28:56

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us and informing us in some bizarre, wonderful, una

00:28:58--> 00:29:43

una escuela Allah is going to ask us about our sight, about our ears, about our hearts about our thoughts. Allah will ask us he's going to question us, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all forgiveness and may He make us use these faculties in a manner that they will bear witness for us and not against us. We know in the Quran in surah Yaseen Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us earlier manakamana of ye moto can nimona ie him with a shadow no homie man can we see Boone on the day of the AMA, Allah will seal our mouths or seal the mouths of the people and their hands will speak out their legs will speak out as to what they used to earn. May Allah subhanho wa Taala let our hands

00:29:43--> 00:29:46

and legs speak for us and not against us.

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about how people questioned resurrection. You know what they said? While Carlo, the co founder of Qureshi at that time, these were the utterances that they actually

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

It

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

either can evolve

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

when we become bone and when we are dispersed and when we have decomposed into the soil, are we going to be resurrected a new? Are we going to be resurrected once again? The response comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala kuno Hey Jonathan,

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

when you decomposed become what you want, when you are decomposed you can become a rock or you can become steel or iron. Allah says

00:30:44--> 00:31:32

he can or you can become any creature that might be considered as large and bigger in your own hearts. The move Assyrian have explained that what is meant by that, it means you can become death itself, you can become death. That is something that requires a lot of pondering to understand. If a person becomes dead, can he die, he can die because he is dead. So Allah says, you can become death. And Allah says faceva una mejor de de una de la de foto de como la ma, who is going to bring you back to life they will say who is going to bring us back to life? Tell them the one who gave that life in the first place. Do you know that after the judgment is complete Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:31:32--> 00:32:11

will bring in the presence of everybody dead in the form of a little animal and Allah will slaughter it and allow will say that was dead we slaughtered it now the people of Jenna there is no death for you, the people of jahannam there is no death for you. So death will come in the form of an animal that means death is a creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why Allah says oh hello come me my Yakubu vi sudo recon What do you think you will decompose into become anything you want become death itself that doesn't change the Quran and the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala He will definitely resurrect everyone. May Allah subhanho wa Taala resurrect us in the condition that he is

00:32:11--> 00:32:27

pleased with us. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the same surah about how the score an even if everyone tried to come together in order to bring a Quran similar to this and they all help each other they would not be able to bring on like this hola

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

Elgin Allah

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

Neela tuna be missing.

00:32:40--> 00:33:19

Even if all humankind and all gene kind of got together and assisted one another in order to try and come up with a book similar to the Quran. They will never ever be able to come even close to it. May Allah grant us the power or the acceptance to understand that this Quran is a gift it has been granted to myself and yourself. It is the only book that can be memorized the way we have memorized it Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept it from every single one of us for definitely all of us have memorized even a portion of the Quran as I said the other day, even Sumatran Fatiha Mashallah we all know it is part of the Quran. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept it from us and

00:33:19--> 00:33:22

resurrect us from amongst those who have memorized even a portion of the Quran.

00:33:24--> 00:34:05

The next year, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something very interesting and the surah is named after that incident. It is known as Seurat will cap it has a lot of blessings and I'm sure a lot of us read it on many occasions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding of the lessons within the surah I'm going to go through a few lessons only. The first is that way. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the people, the youngsters, the youth, who did not like their environment. And they did not like the ruler who was unjust. They were unable to live their life according to what Allah wanted. So they went to the cave, there are two narrations one says they all

00:34:05--> 00:34:15

went together to the cave and the other says that one went, the other one went and they went separately, but they all arrived at the same cave. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that they made the dua, what was that?

00:34:18--> 00:35:00

They made a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah grant us, goodness, grant us mercy, protect us from the evil that is going on around us and help us make decisions in our affairs in a manner that is correct and good. Well, hi, Lana Minh, Amina oshada. They asked a lot to protect them and to grant them goodness in their face. So what did Allah do as a result? automatically, for babina Allah Allah name, Finca VC de nada for many years we blocked their ears. Some of them have a Syrian say that if a person does not know

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Know what is going on around that person in terms of evil, and they are not interested in learning that which is evil, they may be protected from it because they don't know it. And in the same way or the opposite is also correct that when a person starts listening to evil, and when a person listens how easy it is to commit sin because sin is being committed by everyone in such an easy manner shavon might come to that mind to say, you know what, it's so simple to commit sin. Why don't you commit sin, but when we don't know about it, we may never even think about it. I know a few days ago, I made mention of how we should know what is evil so that we can stay away from it. But

00:35:41--> 00:36:21

sometimes there is evil that we don't know about we will never know about unless we go to places of evil that becomes Haram. No one can go to the nightclub and tell me no you know what, we went to the nightclub because we were told to come and see what the evil is all about. That is foolish. Nobody can go to a place where only haram happens to a bar and sit there with all the drunk guards and then say I went to the bar only to see what was going on. Allahu Akbar, may Allah say safeguard us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala as a gift to these youngsters sealed their ears for a long, long time. They didn't listen to any evil. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how 300 years later 300 years

00:36:21--> 00:36:31

later they got up and the Quran mentions the number one be foofy caffeine fellas Annie. See Nina was dead Otis.

00:36:32--> 00:37:18

The Quran says they stayed in the cave. They slept in the cave for 300 years, and they were increased by nine. Now one might ask what is this increase of nine? In the Old Testament The story is mentioned and it is 300 years have spoken about and in the Quran. The Quran says 300 and an excess of nine. If you take a look at the difference between the solar years and the lunar years, in 300 solar years you get exactly 309 lunar years. So that is the increase. Someone might read the Bible and find that you know what it says here 300 years and the Quran says 309 years there is no there is no contradiction then here we are speaking of solar years, and if you multiply it almost

00:37:18--> 00:37:44

every 35 years you get about a year. So 350 years you would get 10 years 300 years you get nine years Allahu Akbar. So 309 years that is another miracle of the Quran. Allah subhanahu Allah grant us and understanding another miracle of the Quran. Let me explain you yet another one. Allah says Allah subhanho wa Taala that what our options are either Allah Azza wa one caffeine that led me anyway.

00:37:49--> 00:38:31

Even if you looked at the sun, you would see when it got up we need we need the rose, it rose on one side of them. And when it's set, it's set on the other side, and they were in the center of the cave, the sun did not get to them. Do you know that when they got up so many years later, they had not aged at all because the cave was cool, and the sunlight did not even touch them. It is now proven that aging is caused by the sun low aka those who work indoors, they will look much younger even when they are 4050. And those who work in the sun, they will look very old even when they are 2530 it's effect so the Quran is telling us how these people were protected because they stayed away

00:38:31--> 00:38:47

from the sunlight. Now I'm not saying we must all walk around with umbrellas. But Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala Quran does the lesson from this, that really, this is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala also, something else Allah subhanho wa Taala says what that saboom I call them

00:38:49--> 00:39:27

when they slept, they slept with their eyes open. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says if you looked at them, you would have run away because it was so scary from this. Some of them say when a person dies, rather than leaving their eyes open if their eyes are open one of their rights over us who are around them alive is to say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim and close the eyes so that no one is scared of the person. Imagine someone's passed away and they busy looking at you winning the eyes are focused on you. Allahu Akbar. May Allah grant us safety and security on the day of the AMA we get frightened of a dead person. What about Allah subhanho wa Taala who is alive and who is

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

always watching us May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to fear him rather than to fear the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala there are so many other verses that we read tonight. But as you know the idea of this little synopsis is just to go through a few verses to show us how beautiful this Quran is the doodles that we extract from this Quran and every single verse every letter is a jewel, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us a life that we can look into the Quran, understand it, put it into practice and teach it to others was Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah Mohammed
