excellence presents jewels from the Holy Quran. A series of lectures by Mufti is mine even Moosa menc.

00:00:44--> 00:00:49

Lecture 21 Jews 25 salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:50--> 00:00:59

Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah al Amin. Nabina. Muhammad, Allah Allah He was happy.

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

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who was sent as a point of mercy for all mankind and for all creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala complete blessings and salutations be upon all the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at all of us. May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us And forgive us. We have rolled in to the last 10 nights of this month of Ramadan, we make dua and we pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he makes us from amongst those who can end this month. On a very, very high note. His doors of mercy are open it is up to us to walk through those doors. He forgives as many

00:01:42--> 00:01:54

people as possible it is up to us to seek that forgiveness Allahumma inaka who want to hit Bulava? Oh Allah you are forgiving you love to forgive. So forgive us. Yeah, Allah.

00:01:55--> 00:02:21

In the verses we read tonight, the verse that I have mentioned several times through the month where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he shall continue showing mankind various signs in the horizons and signs within themselves, which will prove beyond any doubt whatsoever that this Quran is definitely the truth. And for that reason, there are scientific discoveries on a daily basis towards the Quran.

00:02:22--> 00:02:36

They are discoveries and they are lots and lots of pieces of research which are being put together which are proving to us as time passes, that definitely what the Quran has said is the truth sanitary him, Tina

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

Murphy, who seen him had

00:02:43--> 00:02:44


00:02:47--> 00:03:31

Ko, we will continue showing them signs in the horizons and signs within themselves which will prove that this Quran is definitely the truth. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us read this from time and again and understand it and put it into practice and teach it to others. I mean, the surah which we commence thereafter is known as surah to shuara, the Lama or those who were giving the names to these sewer, they named it after a certain issue that is discussed in it and that is the consultations that we as believers are meant to be engaged in when it comes to making important decisions in our lives. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that in this surah inshallah we

00:03:31--> 00:03:52

will get to that. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same sutra speaks about how he is the one who accepts Toba meaning he is the one who accepts forgiveness. So there is no point in me making Toba to anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala if I want forgiveness, I need to ask Allah Subhana Allah

00:03:53--> 00:04:00

wa Who? Jacobo taumata anybody who is say

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

it is he who accepts the repentance when one engages in Toba and it is he who forgives the evil and the wrongdoings of people may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. But the point of clarification that we need to understand is when we have wronged a fellow human being that is a third party when we first need to go and ask that person for forgiveness. Let me explain to you the two different types of sin. One is that which is connected to Coca Cola, the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala so a person does not read Salah he will engage in Toba, a person listens to music engage in Toba, a person drinks alcohol engage in Toba, a person for example, commits Zina and adultery fornication,

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

engage in Toba seek forgiveness Allah will forgive you. But the minute you have now back bitten, someone else slandered someone falsely accused someone cheated. Someone deceived someone now there is a

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Third party involved. Allah describes himself as referred to Rahim, most forgiving, Most Merciful, but that other human being whom we have wronged is not the Fuhrer Rahim. We first have to go to them. It's their right we wronged them. My dear brother, my dear sister, I spoke lots about you behind your back which was not good. Please, can you forgive me? We need to build the courage to do that. Then only we shall be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I will not interfere when it comes to a third party. That does not involve me. Directly it involves me indirectly. So first you go to that party, seek forgiveness, and then you come to me and

00:05:40--> 00:06:17

I will forgive you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can go and ask others for forgiveness before the day of the AMA because on the day of Tiana Colonia Kowloon of CFC, everyone is going to be worried about himself, oh myself myself, am I going to succeed Am I going to fail? and so on. On that day, no one will want to easily forgive us because they will say Hang on, let me see how much how good I failed. How well I fail. If I do well, I don't mind forgiving you. But if I don't do well, I need some good deeds from you so that I can go into general now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all on that day. So we must not we must have the power and ability and

00:06:17--> 00:06:34

courage to go up to people now no matter what. And tell them you know what? I deceived you I cheated you I back bit meaning I spoke behind your back I slammed you and so on. I falsely accused you I spread rumors about you please forgive me and plead with them begged with them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all.

00:06:35--> 00:07:13

That is the first point. The second point is when someone comes to ask seeking forgiveness regarding what they may have done against us forgive them because when Allah sees that quality of forgiveness in us, He will forgive us also for other sins which we have committed against him. We read verses in Surah to know where Allah subhanho wa Taala was telling that to Abu Bakr Siddiq Ravi Allahu anhu, forgive Don't you want Allah to forgive you? So when we go to someone, we expect forgiveness when someone comes to us, let us learn also to forgive May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. And it is also very, very important that we stay away from oppressing others because believe me if we

00:07:13--> 00:07:54

oppress someone, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not forget that he will create someone who will oppress us. When we do wrong against someone Allah will create someone to do wrong against us. We will not die before we taste the evil of our own deeds. Kamata Dino to learn how you do unto others that is how it shall be done unto you. May Allah subhanahu wa taala Forgive us, sometimes we engage in so much evil, we think we are fixing up people and we think that we are going to teach them a lesson, not realizing we are just sowing a seed. And that seed will very soon grow into a powerful tree which will continue obstructing our way forever and ever, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will do

00:07:54--> 00:08:29

that to us. So it's important that we know this, that when it comes to forgiveness, Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful, but not all human beings are most forgiving, Most Merciful. This brings us to another point. We should not be judgmental when we come to people. Because sometimes you might find the person in the nightclubs, a person, a drunkard and so on, he might be forgiven because he will raise his hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah might forgive him or her. But then you have others who oppress other human beings, who knows Allah might not forgive them. So if we are from amongst those, what makes us then decide that the others who are in the nightclubs are worse

00:08:29--> 00:09:09

than us. If Allah once he can let them turn immediately because that sin was committed between them and Allah directly, no third party involved. But here, Allah protect us all. That is why in one narration Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that to backbite against someone is worse than committing adultery. When adultery is committed, the parties are normally together in it. But when it comes to backbiting, one is actually being oppressed to a degree that you don't even give him the chance to clarify his name because it is done behind his back. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that if he wanted, he could have made everybody very

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

rich and wealthy, very rich and wealthy, everybody would have been wealthy. Allah subhanho wa Taala owns absolutely everything. And he says, but he did not make us wealthy, not all of us. He raised some above others. And Allah says, All our best self, Allah, Connie, anybody

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

around the world,

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

working as zinoviev

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

If Allah decided to dish out and to hand out wealth to everyone, then the whole purpose of life would become a race and people would be oppressing each other. Imagine if Allah gave all of us wealth, then it would not be whether I have billions or not, but it would be how many billions now I have compared to your billions, everyone would be billionaires

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

May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. And then Allah says there would be chaos. Why? Because people would begin to oppress others with their wealth. So Allah says that is why he decided to distribute a little bit and he decided to share it out in the manner that he has decided to share it out. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us content with what we have. Definitely the winner is the one who can be happy with what Allah Subhana what Allah has given him or her, whether it is the amount of wealth you have, be happy, the type of spouse you have be happy and content, whether it is the health you have be happy and content with what Allah has decided to give you the looks you have be

00:10:40--> 00:11:17

happy and content with what Allah Subhana Allah has given you. Because those who do not have contentment will never achieve contentment, no matter what they get. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us happy with what he has distributed for us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says that look, whatever you have got in this dunya it is just provisions for your pastime in this world. You know, like how if we are going from here to Johannesburg by road, we will take a little bit of lunch just in case we get stuck on the way. And by the time we get there. We don't take so much lunch that now we packed three trailers at the back because we are not going to take four months to get there. But

00:11:17--> 00:11:58

we take a little lunchbox and we expect and hope that by the time we get there inshallah it would have come in handy. So the same applies we are on a journey from this dunya to the ashira. Why should we amass so many trailers that are not going to be of use to us? Let us rather let other people benefit from that as well. And let us also distribute May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the comprehension that this is only what Allah has provided us is only provisions for us to live during our little life that is here in the dunya which won't last on average more than 65 years. On average. The Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Amar Amati Nabina sistina illa 17

00:11:58--> 00:12:15

the average lifespan of the people of my oma is between 60 and 70. Some might be lucky, and they might get a few years bonus, whereas others die well before that. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us all strong. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, pharma

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

shy fermata

00:12:21--> 00:12:22


00:12:24--> 00:12:24

de la

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

upon in Latina man, why Allah Allah be me at our

00:12:33--> 00:13:27

own. What you have been given in this world is just provisions for you to pass or to use whilst you are passing in this particular world and what Allah has kept in store with him, for those who do good deeds that is definitely better and it is much more solid and it is everlasting. For those who believe and those who do good deeds then Allah describes Who are those who are going to be getting the everlasting riches, the everlasting wealth, that everlasting life of goodness, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, When Medina Ajay Tawny buena, Kaaba Iran if me one fella he was either the movie rune What a beautiful statement, Allah says, Those who stay away from major sin. And those who when they

00:13:27--> 00:13:49

get angry, they are the first and the quickest to forgive. When they are angry, they forgive how many of us, strictly speaking, when we become very, very angry, can we actually just forgive, sit down and start smiling? You know, there are several categories of people when it comes to anger, those who get angry very fast. And when they get angry, it lasts long. Those are the worst of people.

00:13:51--> 00:14:28

And then there are those who get angry very fast, but they cool down also very fast. Those are also not very good. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us, then there are those who take very, very long to get angry, but when they get angry, you can never bring them back to that temperature, which you would like. Those are also not ideal. Then you have the best of people, those whom it takes a large and a great effort to get them angry. But once they get angry automatically and immediately they forgive and they come down immediately. May Allah make us from amongst those who don't even get angry. I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from among those whose temper is controlled at

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

all times. Remember, by getting angry, we don't solve problems. If anger could solve problems, we would have bureaus and offices where you would go in, pay a little bit, sit down for half an hour, get as angry as you want, come back and all your problems will be solved. But that is impossible. It does not happen. It will not happen. Like when I was young. I recall my dad telling me that you know, crying does not solve the problem. If crying could solve the problem. We would all sit in help you cry. Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala solve our problems, but I do beg to differ very slightly cry

00:15:00--> 00:15:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala will solve our problems may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us really the ability to cry for his sake and may He solve our problems inshallah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to mention the qualities, those who stay away from major sin, those who forgive when they get angry then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

When levena boulia Bhima kar masala, mucho rabina.

00:15:34--> 00:16:14

Those who answer the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they establish their prayer and their affairs are decided by mutual consultation all their major affairs, they consult those who are closest to them, those who are knowledgeable and those who have a genuine feeling for them. Remember, we are taught to consult when it comes to marriage, you must consult because they will not be Baraka if we just make our own decisions without consulting those who are closest to us. Those who have a genuine feeling for us. Like when you want to open a huge business in an area that you have not been you need to consult first you need to find out what lines will really move in that

00:16:14--> 00:16:37

particular area. What business will be good when you want to make a move shift city to city it is important that you consult firstly and so on these major decisions. May Allah make it easy for us. But when it comes to consulting, don't just catch any man on the street and say look, we are told as meaning we need to consult please I need to ask you this. The man might be a fool. He might not know anything he might tell you You know what?

00:16:38--> 00:17:03

You can actually go and become a plumber. Why? Because he is a successful plumber. And he will tell you that you know you will make a lot of money. Yet you have a certificate that has made you a doctor. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make our doctors plumbers Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the correct understanding that when you go to consult, consult the experts of the field in question. That is what Allah teaches us.

00:17:04--> 00:17:40

So when you have a religious question, go to the experts of the field in question. When you have an A question for the taxman go to your accountant, who is the professional in the field, go to the lawyer who might be able to tell you something and go to the best don't compromise May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding number one, so that's the first quality you look at when you are going to consult the second quality. Go to someone who does not hate you, someone who has a genuine feeling for you, because you might go to a professional and because of his hatred, he will intentionally give you the wrong advice. He doesn't have a genuine feeling for you. So we are taught

00:17:40--> 00:17:49

to bear in mind these two things. Speak to the one who knows that's why in the Quran Allah says first aloe Zicree

00:17:52--> 00:18:31

moon, ask those with knowledge of the field in question. If you do not know. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding Firstly, those who know secondly, make sure they have a genuine feeling for you. And this is why in marriage, it is very, very important that we keep our parents in the picture because they are the closest to us. They have the most genuine feeling for us. inshallah, it is incorrect for us to distance our parents and tell them listen that I'm going to get married to this person whether you like it or not, it's with you or without you. What Baraka do we expect more and more children are doing this. But at the same time, we must equate and we must say dear parents

00:18:31--> 00:19:07

do not reject the marriage of your child without a valid Sheree excuse. Sometimes what happens the parents say no, you're not going to marry that man. Why? Just because my father meaning his father and me had a problem in the past. That's not an Islamic valid excuse. So we must make sure we should not refuse our children to marry whom they would like to marry. without a valid Sheree excuse that we are ready to present in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the Hadith says Elijah komentar Bona Dena who Luca who was a widow, in light of Allah hota confit Nutan, fill out the officer.

00:19:08--> 00:19:45

When someone when a proposal comes in your direction of someone who is well mannered, someone whom you are satisfied of their level of character and their level of Deen. Then accept them do not reject them because if you reject them unnecessarily and without a valid excuse, there will be great fitna on this earth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from fitna, so we've given encouragement to both sides, the children don't disobey your parents in this regard and the parents don't disallow your children unnecessarily. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make it easy for all those who aren't married to get married. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who have simple

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

marriages. Remember

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that the marriage with the greatest amount of Baraka is that marriage which was as simple as possible, nowadays we become so complex and complicated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Have mercy on all of us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how the quality of these people of those who will be entering genma inshallah they would have had consulted before they made major decisions and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and they spend from the wealth that Allah has given them Subhana Allah. Normally we here with a chemo salata to sakata. establish your Salah, give our charities in this particular verse, establish your Salah, consult in your major affairs, and then give out your soccer. Which means sometimes even giving out your soccer requires that you consult widely to say, well Should I give it Who should I give it to? How should I give it? Are these people

00:20:41--> 00:21:18

deserving or not deserving? It is not so simple to just pick up your wealth and distributed anywhere in everywhere. It is such a huge act of worship, that I need to ensure that whom I am giving actually deserves the car and I need to ensure that whom am I whom I am giving is actually a means of me fulfilling this great act of worship. What's the point of giving people who are con artists May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect this Omar Mohamed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the verses very clear. It's up to us to follow and to take heed. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to mention some

00:21:18--> 00:21:22

beautiful qualities of the true believers. And Allah says what does

00:21:24--> 00:22:08

it say to me to know when someone has wronged you, you are allowed to retaliate? When Latina era sobre como yo homie into soon those people whom when someone has oppressed them, they retaliate? They revenge they they know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them the right to attack back if someone has attacked you, you have the right to attack back. If someone has bad mouth, do you have the right to clarify your name in public and you have the right to mention them by name that such and such a person is going around speaking about me saying this and that I have the right to clarify and this is why I'm clarifying. That is the right Allah gives you in this verse. But at the end

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, though that is your right. While I'm

00:22:15--> 00:22:19

in Ghana mean as mean

00:22:21--> 00:22:26

whosoever is going to be patient and still forgive, then that is the best of our face.

00:22:27--> 00:23:04

Which means I have the right to retaliate but if I retaliate, he might retaliate. If he retaliates I will retaliate. Where is it going to stop? Someone somewhere has to throw in the gloves and say, Look, that's enough. Nevermind, you blew me. You Oh, you gave me you handed me and ditched me the last fist I'll take it now let's not fight. Someone somewhere has to stop. Isn't that correct? Because if we continue, it might never stop. But remember, we have the right to defend ourselves. And that is why no one must come and say oh, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to forgive every time because there were times when he also retaliated. At the in the Battle of

00:23:04--> 00:23:44

butter, a whole army was prepared to retaliate. The Battle of offered these battles, they were armies which were prepared, or that were prepared in order to retaliate. So the sooner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is on both sides. He also forgave and he also retaliated. So what should we do? consult very widely, then look at what is best for your circumstances and for your situation. And then you should react in that particular way, either through forgiveness, or either through retaliation. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make a strong so the Quran has left no loopholes. And the Quran also has not given the chance to someone or for someone to say, continue oppressing him

00:23:44--> 00:24:21

because he will continue forgiving, no problem. Do you know there is a story where there were three very pious people in the masjid. And there was one youngster. So the youngster was told, you know, those people are very pious, the one in the left is still young. The one in the middle is more pious than him and the one in the right is extremely pious. So he said, How can I know the difference between he who is pious and he who is not pious? So the youngster was told, well, they concentrate they concentrate a lot. So he said All right, let me see he went to the first one Salam Alaikum. No response he was involved. This man was involved in his the Quran recitation of the Quran, no

00:24:21--> 00:24:33

response. So this youngster decided to give him one clap on his face. So the poor pious person got one clap on his face. And as though nothing had happened, he continued reciting.

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

Now, the man says, Yes, Truly this these people are pious, and the sign of it is that they don't even notice what goes on around them. Let me go and see the one who's more pious than him. So he moved slightly to the right. And he greeted again, no response. He gave this man one solid clap. The man got up and says is your hand Okay brother? Is your hand Okay brother. So this man was shocked to say he is not conscious of what happened to him but he

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

conscious of the pain that came on my hand. Allahu Akbar. Look at how pious he is. So now this is obviously teaching people how to forgive, isn't it? They didn't even discuss that it was a sin. So now this youngster is thinking to himself, whoa, that man on the right must be the most pious. Let's see what he does. He went, he greeted him again, no response. He gave him one solid clap. That man got up and gave the youngster two claps.

00:25:24--> 00:25:31

So the youngster says, but I thought you were the most pious, he says, someone somewhere needs to stop you clapping people.

00:25:32--> 00:26:10

So this is why we need to study in Islam. We need to look at what is the best remedy for that particular situation. Sometimes you can forgive people, but if you continue forgiving them who's going to stop that oppression? This is why the Hadith says that if you do not stop an oppressor from oppressing others, then chaos will overtake the whole community and then you will make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he won't respond because you will be collectively guilty of having allowed an oppressor to keep on oppressing, or keeping on oppressing the rest of the people. So it's important that we balance it as we have been taught May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us, then Allah

00:26:10--> 00:26:47

subhanho wa Taala speaks of yet something else very important point. Sometimes when people marry for many years, they don't have children. So they begin to complain you know, I don't have children. I don't have children I've been making dua Allah is not responding. May Allah grant them children inshallah. Then you have people they start getting children they get boys first boy, second boy said boy, they start complaining. I've only got boys. I need girls, y'all I need girls. So they are also complaining. Now. We are like random girls as well. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala then some people Allah gives them the children so he gets one girl, two girls three girls, what does he say?

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

complaining y'all I only have girls with the boys complaining again man like random boys inshallah. Then there are some people who have boys and girls. But as the children grow up, they say Allah these children are so mischievious Yala. They are so rebellious. They have really disgraced me. Why did you grant me children Yala? It was better that I didn't have children. Allahu Akbar. Don't we hear these statements? So who is thanking Allah? Who is thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us happy with whatever decision he has decided for us here he says de la HeMan. Kusama wanting when Allah owns absolutely everything in the skies and on Earth.

00:27:29--> 00:27:29


00:27:31--> 00:27:36

It is he who creates whatever he wants. Yeah, bulimia.

00:27:38--> 00:27:50

bulimia, docu, he gives whomsoever He wishes only girls, and he gives whomsoever He wishes only boys will use them.

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

And for some he gives them boys and girls

00:27:59--> 00:28:17

akima and for some he gives them neither boys nor girls Allahu Akbar. That is the power of Allah. Part of the sign of Eman is when we can say yeah Allah we are happy at your decision. We would be even happier if you had to grant us something but if you know it's not good for us, keep it away from us.

00:28:19--> 00:28:41

So this is the diverse mentioned here, we need to be happy if you take a careful look, you will find all categories of people complain all categories of people complain inshallah we should be those who make the difference and we should be from amongst those who say Allah, we thank you Yama. Then in the next year, Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah zakros Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

the people and what they used to tell the messengers who came to them.

00:28:49--> 00:29:02

Whenever the messengers came to a nation, they ordered the nation to do good and they prohibited bad and some members of the nations did not accept and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

worker that he Kama

00:29:08--> 00:29:13

Kobani coffee cornea team in a meeting in call.

00:29:16--> 00:29:31

In the same way, all the nations before you, whenever we have sent a warning to them, the effluent from amongst them made a statement what was their statement when they did not want to change their ways and habits? They said

00:29:32--> 00:29:33


00:29:40--> 00:29:40


00:29:45--> 00:29:59

we found our forefathers doing this Who are you to come and tell us today? We found our forefathers doing exactly what we are doing and we are going to follow their footsteps. We are not going to listen to you. So Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah Mooji

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

To be mean to

00:30:08--> 00:30:49

the messengers told them what if what we have brought to you has greater guidance than what your forefathers have taught you. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about those people who are cursed as a result. May we be from amongst those whom, when goodness comes to us we adopt it. And when people prohibit us from evil, we adopt it on merit, not on whether our forefathers said it or not. Because, yes, if our forefathers said it, and it was correct, we will adopt it and stick by it. But if our forefathers did not teach it to us, and we missed out, then when it comes to us, definitely we will still tend to eat because of it being goodness, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us not from amongst

00:30:49--> 00:30:57

those who have so hard hearts, that even when the truth comes to us, we react and retaliate in the same way that these people who are mentioned here reacted and retaliated.

00:30:58--> 00:31:11

And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks again, in the Surah Surah Surah, of meaning the adornments of gold, and Allah speaks about gold and silver and lots of wealth in the surah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

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


00:31:13--> 00:31:14


00:31:24--> 00:31:26

superfan movie bought him

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

when he booted him.

00:31:35--> 00:31:37

Una was over one,

00:31:39--> 00:31:40


00:31:43--> 00:31:44

one, zero to

00:31:47--> 00:32:32

13. Once again, Allah tells us that had it not been for everyone to have transgressed and become a nation solely interested in wealth, we would have granted everyone who disbelieved also lots and lots of wealth, and we would have granted them houses made of silver houses that had roofs of silver. And we would have granted them elevators that they could have gone up to see whatever they wanted, and we would have granted them beds and beddings made of silver and gold with complete adornments and so on. But Allah says all that just provisions of this dunya Allah subhanho wa Taala has much better in store. So he tells us he would have gone to that to everyone but then it would

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

have become a rat race.

00:32:35--> 00:33:12

And with us without even having been granted that we already find ourselves sometimes so engrossed in the dunya that we don't even five five we don't even find five minutes for our foreign Salah. If that is the case, let's promise Allah tonight. Tonight being one of the major nights it's promised Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, we promise you we will fulfill our five Salah even if it means to spare five minutes at an awkward place by the Allah we will put down our prayer mats and we will pray for your sake Allah. And if we promised that to Allah on a night like this, there is a great possibility that Allah will promise us gentlemen shall

00:33:13--> 00:33:28

then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks also about company once again, those who become oblivious of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala he appoints a Satan to be in the company all the time. Why am I the creator of many?

00:33:29--> 00:33:30


00:33:31--> 00:34:11

Hua who Corrine whoever becomes oblivious of Allah, they don't remember Allah they are not conscious of Allah. Then Allah says we appoint a Satan to be in their company at all times. That Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. Do you know that each one of us, we have a good force and angelic force and they say technic force, whenever there is something to be done. In the middle there is the soul that Allah has given us our choice. Whenever there is something good to be done, the angel tells us do it. The Satan tells us do not do it. So if we do it, we allow the angel to win and the devil to lose. So the angel becomes more strong. The next time there is something good to be

00:34:11--> 00:34:51

done. It will require less effort because the angel is already a winner above the devil. And when we continue forcing ourselves to do good continue abstaining from bad the angel becomes so powerful that we are known as spiritually elevated people. And when it comes to the other way around, say for example, there is alcohol to be drunk or a visit to the casino. The devil tells us go the angel says don't go if we end up falling to the devil he won basically the bout between the two, the devil one if the devil one once the next time you've got to go there it's going to be easier. The third time it's even so easy that now you don't even have to think when people say casino you are already found

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

there. And then you will be known as a person who is bad spiritually dead. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

Whose souls can allow the angelic force to win and not the satanic force? Because on the Delta Gamma, we are going to be asked one major question all the questions rotate around one thing, how did you utilize the choice we gave you? Wherever we did not give you a choice, we're not even going to ask you the question. But how did you utilize the choice that we gave you? Whenever there was a decision to be made? You made it. Now we are asking you why did you make it the way you made it? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can always respond to that. And May Allah forgive us wherever we cannot respond, because we have faulted. May Allah forgive us before we die.

00:35:39--> 00:35:55

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala, after that speaks about musalla is salatu salam. And Isa le Salatu was Salam. About Musa alayhis salam Allah says that when Musa alayhis salam was sent to Iran, Iran and his people began to laugh Phelim

00:35:57--> 00:36:37

Tina Eva whom in Baku, they literally scoffed at him when he told them and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how they would destroy it. Anyone who laughs at you one day you will have a day when you will laugh at them if not in the dunya then in the afternoon, and anyone we scoff at Allah subhanho wa Taala will create a day for them to also laugh at us. Allah subhanho wa Taala make us decent human beings who are good and upright Muslims inshallah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the coming back of East Allah is Salatu was Salam close to piano Some people say it's not in the Quran. No, it is here in Surah Surah Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it and he says regarding

00:36:37--> 00:37:22

this Ali Salam was in hula manisa definitely he is a sign of tiama he's coming shall be a sign of the end of time. Don't we all believe that he sallallahu Sallam Jesus May peace be upon him is going to return to the earth. He is not dead, he is alive and he is going to return to the earth close to the end of time. So when he returns it is going to be a sign of tiama and that is mentioned here in Surah two Zoo May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding also Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how the best of friends shall be enemies on the day of piano besides those who used to remind each other what to do and what not to do in conformity to what Allah Subhana what Allah has

00:37:22--> 00:38:08

revealed. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who have friends who continue reminding us what is right and wrong, according to what Allah has revealed. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about one statement which shall be made by the people who will be dwelling in Hellfire forever. They will call out to Malik Malik. One of the names of one of the gatekeepers of jahannam wanna marry Cooney Jacobi Allah in book, they will say, oh Malik call out to your Abba to make us die. Let him cause death to us because we are suffering so much in this jahannam and we want to die so that we can be literally saved from all this punishment and the response will come in

00:38:10--> 00:38:20

Kiku No, you are going to remain in there forever. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from those who shall be dwelling in Jerusalem.

00:38:21--> 00:38:54

The next Torah is a very important surah connected to tonight. We all know that one of the last one of the last 10 nights as a night in it, which is Laila to the Night of Decree, The Night of Decree and power, some translated as the night of power. It is not only the night of power, but also from the Night of Decree where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes decisions on that night as well. So the vs opening verses of surah two Doohan, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in

00:39:00--> 00:39:33

Raka we have definitely revealed this Quran on a bless at night, one might ask what is the bless at night, the highest way or the most correct way of the seal and translation of the Quran is a type of Tafseer known as the seagull qurani Bill qurani tafsir have some verses of the Quran by other verses which appear in other places. So if Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us we have revealed the Quran on a blessed night. Then Allah has described that bless it night in another surah in

00:39:35--> 00:40:00

de la isla de lucado. So do we see how the two translate each other Laila to Qatar is a blessing night and the blessing night being spoken about is Laila and Allah subhanho wa Taala describes that night here may Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed for us that which is good and that which is best May Allah subhanho wa Taala not prohibit us from the mercy of this Eve and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant this

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

Omar of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unity for definitely It is very, very important that the Ummah unite at this moment in time. And in order to unite we will need lots and lots of tolerance. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about so many items in this book on every single point is a point of reminder for myself and yourselves. If only we look at this, and we read the verses we think, how do they apply to me in my life, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Make me strong and make yourself strong, make the whole oma strong or sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homovanillic the shadow Allah Allah, Allah and the Mr. cona tulelake
