smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala creator of entire creation
wa salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani complete blessings and salutations be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions and all of us may Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the true benefit from the lessons of the Quran. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to take us through the waves of guidance and to guide us onto the shows in Sharla of Jelena May Allah subhanho wa Taala take us there
surah Toulon Kabuto is a surah that we completed this evening. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah speaks about the spiderweb and we mentioned that yesterday in the opening verses of the 21st chapter of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the lesson is all of us autonoma de la kameena kita be wa T mu swana in la sala
read that which has been revealed to you Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the book meaning the Quran and establish Salah for definitely Salah will prohibit a person from immorality and evil.
That is the declaration of the Quran. Salah should be prohibiting us from immorality and evil. So if anyone is engaged in immorality and evil, that means their Salah is not in order. Do you know that the Salah is a training for us. It is a training for us to live our whole lives according to the commands of our own creator. When we stand in Salah we are asked to look down why in order to teach us the controlling of the gaze, though there is nothing Haram in the masjid but it is best for us to look at the point of sujood so if we can look only on the spot where Allah wants us to look five times a day when we are outside Salah it won't be very difficult for us to drop our gaze wherever we
have to please the same creator.
The same applies in Salah I am only allowed to utter certain words which are from the Quran. Though the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is correct. Can I get up and start reading the Hadith in the first Raka I can't. So if I can only utter words that Allah has asked me to utter five times a day surely outside Salah I can stay away from foul language.
Similarly, in Salah I am not allowed to walk about and talk and I am not allowed to eat even halal food I'm not allowed to eat in Salah. So if I can close my mouth and I can learn to control these items five times a day, then definitely outside Salah it won't be a very big issue for me to abstain from that which is haram for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah May Allah grant us the understanding now do we see that if we read Salah in the correct way for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala it should make our lives so pure that it we will be prohibited automatically from evil and immorality.
When a person's gaze is controlled, inshallah the rest of the problem of immorality is already solved. Allahu Akbar May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So this is something that is extremely important also, when a person reads Salah solely to please his creator, without intending anything else, Allah subhanho wa Taala automatically develops this person's ear man
because no one is driving them to reading Sala besides the love of their own creator.
have read five sala de solely to please Allah subhanho wa Taala when there is evil to be committed in the same day, a good Muslim will tell himself look I've already achieved five Salah Why must I spoil the reward by now going into that which is bad and evil May Allah subhanho wa Taala goddess and safeguard us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same surah speaks about death once again. And this verse repeats itself it was simple for Allah subhanho wa Taala to say it once in the Quran just once could loan have seen
every soul shall taste death. But Allah repeats this verse so many times in the Quran because we human beings are very quick to forget.
We remember tonight we sit here and we remember Mashallah, you know, yeah Allah forgive me, I will turn to you and so on and so forth. And after we leave here, Ramadan is ended and we just did the back of our minds. We know that you know, one day we attend the decision lecture and we had promised Allah warm tears roll down our cheeks. Now what happened to all that we need another reminder. So Allah gives us another Ramadan, a few months down the line, Allahu Akbar. So in the same way, there are so many verses in the Quran that are repeated because Allah says was a key refer in the karate
mini remind for definitely the reminding will help those who truly believe May Allah subhanho wa Taala make that easy for us. And Allah is reminding us about death. And whilst reminding us about death, a few verses down, he speaks about the reality of this life, he says alma
the life of this dunya is only an amusement and a pastime, but the real life is that life of the hereafter. Do you know the 6070 years, the 80 years maximum 100 years that we might live is nothing compared to the billions of years that are to come in sha Allah, may Allah make us meeting gentlemen, if we meet in gentlemen, after being in Ghana for 30 billion years,
and we meet each other and we remind each other of this day here, and we ask each other you know, what, how, how long has gone by and we say 30 billion years? It's outside our minds, isn't it? And then the question comes, how much is it remaining? What is the answer? The answer is, you know what we've only just started Allahu Akbar. Take a look at the comparison of that. I know I've mentioned the huge figure. But the comparison of that to the 70 years that we tackle, and half of them who is suffering health problems and the marital problems and family feuds and disputes and earning a livelihood day and night, rushing to and forth like headless chickens. May Allah subhanho wa Taala
grant us the understanding this life is nothing. The true life is the era. Do you know how, and this is a very, very important example because tonight is going to come twice. The the example of a dream. You know how when we are dreaming, and you dream, you feel like you've lived the whole lifetime. But when someone wakes you up, it's only 15 minutes past or two, three hours past. And that was like a whole story on its own. And suddenly you get up into reality, Allahu Akbar, in a similar manner, when we die, we will get up into reality that is the true reality. Then we will say Oh, that was just like a dream. Allahu Akbar, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the comprehension
of this dunya and the fact that it is just a pastime and an amusement, we need to invest in the US era, we need to make sure we've done deeds in order to build our houses in the era. Nowadays, if you have money, and you have planning and architecture and people at your disposal, and you plan a beautiful house, you spend lots of money and time to plan the house how you want the kitchen must be here, the lounge must be there. Let me pay an interior designer to come in and tell me what to do and where to do it. And we will spend so much time four years, five years The house is the touch of a button and it goes I know now of certain houses that I've seen, where voice recognition is used to
open the gates, believe me, I'm sure it must be here in Cape Town. Those who know would know Allahu Akbar, voice recognition and you open the gates, like how we have cell phones and motor vehicles voice recognition, and it speaks back to you. Allahu Akbar. So we plan and we invest so much money for a house, how long are we going to use that house for? Let's be honest, if I built it that at the age of 40, if I'm lucky, I'll use it for another 40 years. Agreed. Another 40 years if I'm very lucky. And after I die, my children will fight about who owns that house. So it's caused a huge problem anyway. And we are ready. Really. We are ready to spend so much time and effort for that
house. What about the house of the era What about
rooms and lounges and kitchens up there. Allahu Akbar, can't we read our five Salah every time you read the Salah say Allah that's my payment towards the Akira. Every time I fast I say Allah that's my payment every time you stay away from how long your life stayed away from haram because that's my payment for the Akira Yala, I want another room, I want air conditioning, I want this I want that Allahu Akbar. And we explained the agenda a few days back when we said if you can think of something in your brain, you must remember in general, there is much better than that. We explained it in detail a few days back.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes that and after that, he describes the sincerity levels of people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you know, before I mentioned the verse, let me tell you, when we are in an aircraft, when we are in an aircraft, and suddenly the captain announces Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seat belts, we are going through a little bit of turbulence. And what happens the plane starts rocking from side to side, jumping up and down. We hold our seats and say I do Allah Allah illallah wa shadow, Mohammed Abu rasuluh is that not correct? We read our Shahada, we declare it and we say yeah, Allah says goddess ALLAH forgive my sins, your life you take me away
look after my children, Allahu Akbar. What is that the levels of Islam is up in the air when the plane is rocking. That level of Islam is the same level we need here when we are on Earth. Otherwise, we become hypocrites. Look what Allah says.
For either rocky boo feel full ki aloha meclizine Allahu de phylum.
Bernie either knew Shri ku, when they are riding in the ship in the middle of the ocean, and the waves begin to rock that ship. They make a dua to Allah was totally flush and sincere to Allah save us just like what we do when we are in D. A. And Allah says, then when we save them and we bring them to the show and on land, suddenly they forget and they now start associating partners with Allah believes that he will make that not happen to us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the same sincerity levels and Allah mentions it here to draw our attention that look prepared for the ophira. In one of the verses we read tonight, Allah says, In surah, Allah azza
wa jal, Komodo Pharaoh, Pharaoh
say, Tell them oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam running away will not help you if you are running away from death, or from being killed. If Allah has written that against you.
It will not help you, when the angel of death at the prescribed time prescribed place comes down, that Angel will take us away no matter what. So remember, whether it is in the air 37,000 feet above sea level, or whether it is in the oceans or whether it is on land, or in a high rise building, or whatever we have, remember we cannot run away from the command of Allah and the degree of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah grant us understanding the next Surah Surah to room where Allah subhanho wa Taala starts speaking about the Romans It is named after the Romans and Allah speaks about how they lost against the Persians.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about various issues in the surah and from amongst these issues, I'm sure we heard the verses being repeated tonight. Woman Yachty he from amongst the signs of Allah, from amongst the signs of Allah and there is a whole list of things that are mentioned there. The first thing Allah says, woman T and holla kokoon.
From amongst the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that he created you, oh man from soil, and thereafter, you became spread on this earth what a sign imagine we started off with one and then there's a progeny. Like how some of us who know our great great grandfather's, we realize that he is one and through him we are related to 7080 100 200 other people. The same applies to Adam Allahu salatu salam and new alayhi salatu was Salam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that being a sign another sign he says, woman I T and holla kakum. Allah tala can mean fujichrome as netus kuno Elijah
Assign for those who ponder Allah says is that we created for you from you, your spouse,
your wives, your husband's Allah says we created for you from you your spouse's so that you can achieve what from them comfortable
them so that you can achieve solace so that you can achieve the coolness May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us marriages that are full of coolness and not marriages that are full of heat, Allahu Akbar, as is the norm nowadays everyone is complaining that Allah subhanho wa Taala make us happy with what we have and help us really assist one another. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, He has created love between you you know when you are married to someone, the minute you utter the words Yes, I have accepted her in my marriage, automatically. There is a strong feeling a strong feeling very, very possessive May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us really that feeling that is the best for our
marriages. When Allah subhanho wa Taala describes something else. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, from His signs, woman, a yachtie he has to somehow it will be joaquina who alsina t Kumar almani. Allahu Akbar, Allah says from His Signs is that he created the skies and the earth. And he gave you different languages, though you come from one source, and different colors. Do you know just think about it for a moment if all of us looked exactly the same, and we were all the same color? Do you know I've thought about it? We wouldn't have names we would have numbers. We would have numbers and barcodes Allahu Akbar as you pass people. No, this is me. That's my wife, Allahu Akbar. Life would
be so boring because everyone would look the same. If one has a company or the whole globe as a company, exactly. They you would need a number to differentiate you we as men are so weak we cannot differentiate identical twins. What about if all humanity was the same? So Allah says one of his signs He made you different? That is why no one must feel Oh, I'm too fat. I'm too small. I'm too short. I'm too tall. Someone somewhere will like what you are like Allahu Akbar, you will find the spouse Don't worry. Some of the women folk nowadays they go on their diets which make them see stars. Why because there is no nutrients they begin to feel Oh, I am possessed by a gene. I can hear
sounds at night chair. Please kill me.
The cure for that is a little bit of chocolate, some yogurt, some red meat and inshallah you'll sleep well, there won't be any sounds inshallah you won't hear things why? to abstain from things that Allah has made halal and permissible. You begin to see stars because you want to look very, very thin and small, some countries of the global law IE they put the womenfolk in the room with potatoes and water and the stove and they say eat until you weigh 70 kilos, then you come out. I'm not joking. Go to Mauritania and ask them what happens there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. It used to happen I don't know about now.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala is trying to show us that it is a blessing that you are different. Don't all try to be like that woman or this one here. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding I'm sure you've all realized that the message is more for the women folk because really, we are suffering. Today we have
the models of the globe whom the globe and the Western world look up to whom if you look at their own lives, their lives are full of chaos. They don't have their brains properly in their heads. And yet people want to look like them be like them act like them. Allahu Akbar, when we have the example of Khadija taburiente, Hawaii, the Aloha, Aloha and the likes, and we are far away as I mentioned in Joomla today, what do we know about eyeshadow? Some of our daughters know more about Britney Spears than eyeshadow. What an insult. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to rectify that.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the different colors then he says, part of the signs listen to this woman Aya t Manoj mukuni milele Allahu Akbar Allah speaks about how we sleep at night. One of the signs is that we sleep and we dream at night. You know what biggest sign of Allah that is, let me give you an example to bring it close to your minds. When you walk into a room and you see two people sleeping, you will only notice snoring Allah protect us from snoring. You will only notice snoring, but one man might be in his dream being frozen in a cold room and a freezer room. And he is suffering in his dream. And the one right next to him might be being burned in a fire. And
they are both screaming and yelling for help. But when you watch them, they are both snoring right next to each other. This one can feel the cold of that one's cold room and that one cannot feel the heat of this one's fire. Allahu Akbar, and the two are right next to each other. Nobody has ever developed a machine where you can put it on the forehead and say this is what they are dreaming Allahu Akbar. These are the sons of Allah.
That's the Creator. He speaks about it here in the surah and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about so much more in the surah Allah He asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the benefit of what he has mentioned. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
how the rainfall is also assigned. warming it in your scenery. Yeah, hello
the wind that is sent by Allah. The wind comes with glad tidings sometimes you see the clouds being driven by the wind. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that's a sign of Allah. And when it rains, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fogo ella
magilla he came
to look at the results of the blessing of Allah, the reign of Allah how the world becomes meaning the earth becomes green and becomes a life after it was dead. The earth becomes alive after it was dead. You know, when you have no greenery at all. Suddenly you have good rainfall, what happens everything becomes green, it comes either and sadhana Allah Allah.
Allah says, suddenly blossoms and it grows Allahu Akbar. So then Allah says, in kalama Hill Mota, that is the one who's going to resurrect you also, do you know, every time Allah mentions the reign of mercy in the Quran, immediately after that, he draws a parallel with the resurrection of mankind. He says, when the earth is dead rainfalls and everything grows, when you are dead, and decomposed into the soil besides the algae, but then at the last part of the spine, Allah speaks about how it will remain small, little portion. Allah says, after the trumpet is blown, we will cause a white thick rain to rain on earth for a period of 40 whether it's days or months or years, we are not so
sure, the Hadith does not mention exactly what but it will rain for a period of time and we will grow like how trees grow. Did we ever know that each one of us will grow almost 18 meters tall, 60 feet tall,
up to the age of 33. According to some of the narrations, those who have died post puberty, they will no matter what age you've died so long as it was post puberty, you will be reasonable right up to a standard age. So Allah says, look, we bring the dead back to life. We will also bring you after you've died back to life. Study the verses of the Quran. Every time the reign of mercy is mentioned after that Allah slips in one word or two regarding resurrection of men, Allahu Akbar. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala has done here. And Allah mentions in the same Surah Surah to rule towards the end he says, Allahu Allah, Allah.
Allah creates you from weakness when you're a child and a baby You are so weak, you have no strength. Then Allah says after that he gives you energy Mashallah, everyone feels strong, especially in your teenagers. When you feel you can beat up the whole world. about anyone starts with you, you look at them, and you breathe heavily, like you know, come here, also check out that is a feeling that people get at the teenage Allah says we know that that's the feeling they get bubble and burst with energy because one day we will return them back to weakness, they must know that that's our plan. When you get to the top of the mountain, you can't stay there forever. You've
got to come down to eat something inshallah, unless you've taken a bit of lunch, when your lunch finishes, you still have to come down.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us I created you from weakness, then you go to strength, and after that you will come down to weakness again, and gray hairs, which means it will be even worse. That is why sometimes the old people you've got to forgive them. Sometimes you've got to understand they might be a generation gap. They might utter words full of wisdom, but sometimes we don't understand them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has the ability to respect those who are old and Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them all really a good life full of good health and may He takes them when he knows it's best to take them and even as may take us away when he knows it's the best time to
take us away inshallah. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next surah he names it surah Luqman.
Look man was a he was not a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala he was a wise man al Hakim. He was a very wise man. That is why Allah starts the surah Alif Lam Meem tilka to Kitab al Hakim Luqman was Hakeem he was wise. For those who are who Fabia. That's a little point of memory to remind you to say don't say movie and they say Hakeem because Look, man was Hakeem sha Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this man whom it is said he was from Africa.
He gave good advice. Very wise man. He gave good advice to his child and Allah makes mention of that advice here. Yeah, bonia Oh, my little son. Listen to this. And Allah mentioned so many important things. One is too *ty can be laggy. don't associate partners with your own creator. Don't be bad and disobedient to your parents. Even if they try and move you astray. Don't follow them in that but still be good to them. Allahu Akbar. Then he says, Oh my son, fulfill your duties to your Creator. Engage in your acts of worship, or my son. Do not become arrogant. Don't
show people your cheek turning away. And don't scream too loud when you talk. Don't scream and don't even be too soft that no one can hear you. Speak properly with lots of respect. Think of your words before you add to them. Allah speaks about that hear the advice in this Quran, Luqman alayhi salatu was Salam gave his son and he also says Yamuna in her in Takumi Scala have bought him in Cabo del fetac movies of watching a movie
or the TV holla telling his son, oh, my son, even the weight of a mustard seed a little grain of good or bad in the darkest corners of the of the night. If you have done it, Allah will bring it forth.
Even if it is lying within a rock. Do you know underneath the rock is one thing but inside the rock law cover, even that Allah knows, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us understanding. So that is Surah Luqman, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that in Surah. Look, man, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us a powerful, powerful comparison.
He says Do you know the trees, all the trees in creation, there are so many we will never be able to count them. Allah says if every tree on Earth was a pin, listen to this, every tree was a pin
and all the water in the oceans was ink.
And you use those pens with that ink to write the signs of Allah and the power of Allah and all the signs that lead to Allah power. Whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala has, the ink will finish the trees will finish and they'll still be so many more signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala
in a cola
manaphy that Kereama to La La kabara that is the verse I translated before I read it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us something even more powerful in another surah in fact at the end of surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding the oceans, while I will never be Miss Li madda even if we multiply so many fold the seas and oceans and the water in it still that water would finish our science won't finish Allahu Akbar, that is the power of Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah Luqman after mentioning the creation, everything is created the sky is the earth everything he says.
This is the creation of a La
duni show me what have those besides Allah created.
We have seen what Allah has created now show us what those besides Allah has created a few surahs back we heard that they have not created a fly, they will never be able to create even a fly, Allahu Akbar, Allah grant us the ability to understand his greatness and his power.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of Surah lukeman speaks about
the five issues of the unseen known as mathematical vibey. The five keys of the unseen none can know them besides Allah, let's go through them in Allah.
masa, the first thing he is the one who knows when the hour shall take place to Yama. Nobody knows besides Allah, yes, when Allah tells the angel to blow the trumpet, so the angel shall know even the angels don't know right now. Only Allah knows that.
Well, you know, xinova and he is the one who sends down rain, where rain, how much rain, exactly? The exact components of that droplet of rain, whether it's acidic rain or not, and whether it's beneficial or not, how it's going to fall when it's going to fall. What it's going to do as a result that only Allah knows, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding.
Well, you know,
he knows what is in the wombs of women only he knows no one else knows. Now some people begin to say, Well, I can tell the sex of the child it's a female. We've seen it in the scan. Allah did not say why Allah men feel or ham or Allah Mama. He didn't say he knows who is there male or female? No, he knows what is there. Do you know there is amniotic fluid in the womb?
What is the exact component of that amniotic fluid? You won't know. And if you test it, it will not be as accurate as what as what Allah subhanho wa Taala knows. But even if one day man comes about with some technology to find that out, let me tell you what else man does not know in that womb. The precise date of birth of that
Is the child going to have good fortune or bad? Let the machines of the dunya calculate that it is written in the womb already?
Is that child going to have? How much sustenance is the child going to have? It's written they already Allahu Akbar, bring the machines now of the dunya. Let's see. So to know the sex of the child is something minor. Don't ever think the Quran has a problem in it. And now you know, technology is proving that this is wrong. Some people I've heard them asking me the question, you know, if the Quran says only Allah knows what is in the womb, what about me? I know that it's now a male child. You say no, listen, you have not understood it. This is what Allah means. You tell me, it is
a shock to you, and I'm sorry, all these things are written, it can't happen meaning when the when the child is going to be born, when the child is going to die, what type of health the child will have when the bones are gonna break of the child if they are meant to be broken or how the child will look 10 years later how many pimples the child will have and so on. Sorry for speaking about those today. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us all good skin inshallah? And may He cure those who have diseases of the skin? So Allah subhanho wa Taala This is what he's saying. Yeah, Mama,
Mama daddy enough some other taxi bovada no one knows precisely what sustenance he's going to receive tomorrow. What you're going to eat tomorrow you don't know you might plan. But if Allah is the only one Allah is the only one who can make that plan, succeed or fail. You can plan to do something and Allah can decide no ways this is not going to happen.
Allah will create a situation that can change the whole thing. Then Allah says, or matter enough to be a demo. No one knows where that so shall die. On which land it will die. Allah might take you to a far of land to Makkah and Medina and you might die there. When you go you think you are going for Hajj and you don't return Allahu Akbar. It's possible. May Allah grant us a beautiful day, they enter Medina to Luna.
So this is what Allah plan is no one can tell when they're going to die. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all protection, how many times the doctors tell you, you've had two weeks to live and they live six years down the line. Six years down the line, they're still healthy and fit Allahu Akbar. It has happened and I'm sure it's happened here in your city as well. Because men can utter through their experience, but they cannot confirm it and sign all their wealth to say this man is dying in the next five minutes I signed every piece of wealth I have, they can take a risk if Allah wants it might happen. But Allah is the only one who knows whether it will happen or not. Then in the next
year, I saw to such Alif Lam Meem as such that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the sajida of those who believe. And Allah speaks about the qualities of those who shall get gender Tata Jaffa Juno boohooman, ilma Baji.
They are the ones at night, their sides refuse to lie down on their beddings they get up when everyone else is asleep, they engage in drama and insula. Those are the people who will earn gender. Didn't we read a such that tonight? That was Allah describing for us those who believe they fall prostrate. So immediately we felt frustrated because we believe Allahu Akbar, that was the such that we read, and Allah continues to describe these good deeds May Allah make us from among those who can get up at least sometimes in the in the night, and I have said it in the past. It is not a condition that you read that
you can set your clock even for two minutes at that time, raise your hands when the clock rings say Allah, I know you are calling at this moment in time Yeah, Allah, I am one of those who wants your mercy, have mercy on me, and then close your hands and go back to sleep. At least you've called out in that Mubarak, our blessing Our Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has the power to do that.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala commences another surah known as sudo to
the surah, where the allies are mentioned which allies at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was an alliance of people and they all got together the different tribes and clans and they went to Medina to Nunavut in order to attack them. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dug a trench around parts of Medina where it was possible for the enemies to have come. So now they could not come. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that. And he mentions it in the surah and he says yeah, are you living in Monaco near meta La La Can you who believe remember the gift of Allah upon you. If
when all the armies came to you, we sent to them a strong women. This means we sent to them one of our members of our army, the wind, Allah's army. We sent to them a strong army of women, and we sent other
armies that you could not see. Meaning the angels also came down to help the believers at that time.
Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us in every single way. But at the beginning of the surah, Allah speaks about something very important. He speaks about the orphan child, and he speaks about children at large. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, or the rumely Abba,
de la law always refer to the children with their father's names, so and so son of so and so. And then the surname surname should be the father's surname, not the mother's. Always. Allah says that he called him with their father's names on the day of the AMA, we will be called with our father's names, what's the use of cheating, normally, and usually with us because of our weakness after a divorce, what happens? The mother once the name of the children to be on her name for what Allah says here, it's a major, major sin. On the day of piano, the child will not be called with the mother's name noise, so much so that on marriage, a woman has the right to maintain her own maiden
name, that is the Islamic name. Why do we change our names and we become Mrs. So and So, instead of say, for example, we have Khadija Daughter of Abdullah and the wife of Abdul Aziz, right. So we say Khadija, Binti Abdullah Khadija, the daughter of Abdullah,
that will not change even on the day of the AMA, she will be called out by that name, no matter what. Now, because of immigration purposes, to make things easy for us in the dunya that we are living in, it will not be prohibited in our case to call her Khadija, the wife of so now the words that are missing are not Daughter of they are now wife of so you're not cheating. You're not hiding, you're not stealing, but you are just now referring to her as the wife of Abdul Aziz. But still it is preferred to say Khadija, daughter of Abdullah in Islam, and if we are cheating, deceiving and stealing, meaning trying to con the people, then it is absolutely haram to utter those words. So
remember, no matter what you call the child with the Father's name and the father's surname, no matter what Allah says, if you don't know the Father's name, in the case of a lost person, then you can just call them connected to you but you cannot refer to them as your own children. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us an understanding at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he looked after zaidan haritha and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they used to refer to Zaid as a diviner Mohammed. And Allah says no, he is not even though Muhammad he's not the son of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you call him exactly who he is. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make
a strong, especially after a divorce has taken place. May He not let us lose our Eman by changing the names. Just because we want this child not to know the Father. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all it is happening with people who call themselves Muslims will lie. We can make a change now and here and today. And we can promise Allah, we can tell the child even when you've adopted a child, make sure you might their child might use your name for purposes of paperwork. But make sure you inform the child very early that you know what we love you so much. Really, you are like a son to us but you are the child of someone else. We are looking after you that is your
Islamic duty because on the day of tiama the child will be called with another name. You don't want to be the embarrassment then the child looks at you and says but you never told me I was the son of so and so. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us Oh, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in the surah also about the example of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he says lapada can Allah comfy rasulillah he has entered to lemon
There is definitely a beautiful example in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for those who would like to follow for those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who want to get to the after everything in our lives, we should understand we must follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his example so much so that even the two hours he made he said Oh Allah save me from jealousy. He was not jealous, save me from stinginess, he was no stingy. But he made all of us so that if we follow this example, automatically, we would be making the same as what a powerful example May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to study his life
and to understand how he dealt with everyone how he traded, what type of a businessman he was, how he dealt with his enemies, how forgiving he was, how he dealt with his family members, how we should be dealing with our own spouses, Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all strong and grant us the acceptance to follow that example was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah who become the Hispanic alarm or behenic Allah Allah Allah
