Lecture 23 June 27 A Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

00:00:51--> 00:01:37

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mean All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala creator of entire creation was only recently mala Ashraf in kalkaji. Marine abena Wahhabi Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani complete blessings and salutations be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all and forgive us on this auspicious night on our beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the purpose of his creation of mankind and Gene kind in Surah to the area where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes a very, very

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

important announcement on

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

gene.

00:01:50--> 00:02:04

I have only created mankind and jinn kind so that they may render worship to me so that they may worship me. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, ma ue do mean

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

to me.

00:02:13--> 00:02:29

I don't want any sustenance from them. I want nothing material from them, nor do I want them to feed me Allah subhanho wa Taala in law who was zafu

00:02:32--> 00:03:17

Allah is the one who will sustain everyone he is the provider, he is the most powerful, he is the strongest. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that he has created us solely that we may worship Him. Now, does this mean that we must stand in 24 hours Allah? Or does it mean we must fast on a daily basis? No. What it means is our whole life must be in accordance with the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do you know that if you sleep with the correct reasons, or for the correct reasons, it becomes an act of worship. If you eat with the correct intention, it becomes an act of worship. If you walk with the right intentions to the correct places, it becomes an act of worship.

00:03:18--> 00:04:01

So every single item we may engage in physically or what we may eat whatever it is, we can convert it into an act of worship, if we have coupled it with the correct intention, and we are doing it for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala not outside the framework of the Sharia, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed to us through Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it is quite simple to understand that our whole life must be in accordance with the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah make that easy for us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it in Surah two very, a very, very powerful verse. Then in Surah, two, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes jahannam very

00:04:01--> 00:04:42

vividly and he describes Jenna also in great detail. And then he makes mention of the accusations that were leveled against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They call him a poet. They call him a fortune teller. They call him a liar. They call him one who is seeking lots of wealth. They said this man maybe is interested in attracting the most beautiful of our women. Maybe he wants the power and he wants to be our leader and so on. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives good news to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it very, very clear to everyone that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so Lee came to us with a message and he will continue

00:04:42--> 00:04:47

reminding farydak kill firrma

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

dabinett Matthew be kavika

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

continue reminding all Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

By the grace of virtue of Allah subhanho wa Taala neither are you a fortune teller, nor are you mentally disturbed as they are saying he's a madman. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us from amongst those who can listen to that which is good when it comes to us and we can obey it because it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala and may not harden our hearts, then Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Najib, the next surah Allah subhanho wa Taala takes a person by the star that is falling or vanishing. One night Jimmy EDA, Allah takes an oath by the star that is vanishing or falling down.

00:05:40--> 00:06:25

Now one might ask, Are we allowed to take a custom with anything besides Allah subhanho wa Taala we say Allah He, when we want to take a person we say I swear by Allah, can I say I swear by something besides Allah subhanho wa Taala? The answer is no. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala has done that in the Quran, in order to show us the greatness of some other creatures of his when it comes to comparing those creatures with men, and to show us that he is the sole creator and no one besides him can create anything near that. So Allah takes a person by night, and by daybreak, what Maha was shams, when lane and so on. All these are persons and oaths, which are taken by Allah subhanho wa Taala. We

00:06:25--> 00:06:45

are not allowed to take the same oath but the only the Creator is allowed to do that if I want to take an oath. I need to take it by Allah subhanho wa Taala one of his names or his qualities, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance, to be honest, even if we don't take a custom. Some people, even if they take 10 customs, they still lie.

00:06:46--> 00:07:04

And some people are known for their tongues, that this person does not need to swear an oath. The minute they have told you something it means it is the truth. They don't lie, Allah make as truthful as well. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he only uttered the truth, even without the custom, he only uttered the truth.

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

In Hawaii.

00:07:14--> 00:07:56

He does not utter anything that is incorrect, anything that is wrong, anything from his own whims and fancies, because absolutely everything he has uttered is directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the power of Revelation, may Allah subhanahu wa taala make us follow his path in sha Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about those who follow their whims and fancies those who followed doubt. Do you know that nowadays when the papers carry stories, it is very easy for them to just allege that this person committed that crime and they say they it is alleged that such and such a person did this and that even if that person wants

00:07:56--> 00:08:20

to take them to court for defamation, he or she cannot do that. Why? Because they will say well, we didn't say you did it. We just said it is alleged that you did it. So they hide behind the word allegedly. May Allah subhanho wa Taala say if goddess. Allah says those are doubts and statements of that nature are unacceptable, because they do not change the truth in any way, a

00:08:22--> 00:09:06

loved one regarding the kuffar who are following their whims and fancies in what they were taught in the past and they were worshipping their idols and so on. Allah subhanho wa Taala says they are following their doubts. What in one Allah yovani meenal has been shy and definitely the doubts do not benefit when it comes to the truth in any way doubts don't change the truth in any way. That is the message we must know. So, we must not fall prey to that which is doubtful, when there is yaqeen and when there is solid knowledge, it cannot be changed by that which is known as check for that which is doubtful. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us from amongst those who can believe the truth

00:09:06--> 00:09:33

and stick by it and may not make us from those who fall prey to stories which are rumors and stories which are false May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us at all times. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala again, speaks of one of the other signs given to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Surah, two Tamara the surah which is named after the moon. Allah commences saying a Katara that is to

00:09:35--> 00:09:49

call tomorrow. Miracle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says the hour the final hour is very, very near and the moon has been split into two pieces. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked for a sign.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

He showed the many signs they said no, we want the sign that we want. Not the sign that you are bringing to us split the moon. Let's see. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

The power of Allah subhanho wa Taala just pointed at it with his index finger and it split into pieces. Allah makes mention of it here. One shot. Tomorrow definitely the moon also split, Allahu Akbar.

00:10:16--> 00:10:45

They still didn't believe the same. That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says there are some people and this is the message tonight. Some people no matter what is brought to them, even if the angels had to come and stand in front of them and say we are angels of Allah, please believe in the message they will still say no ways we are not interested in doing something bigger than you. Allah says do other waiting for a lot to come in address them. Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. This is what Allah says. What he

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

waiuku see.

00:10:50--> 00:11:05

Whenever they see one of these signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala they turn away and they say that man is a magician. It is just an illusion of the AI Allahu Akbar. That crack is still supposed to be there on the moon. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all understanding

00:11:06--> 00:11:31

it had split and it was caused to come back by the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can listen to His signs in the Quran, and who can accept and turn and then Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the Day of Resurrection. Listen to the description. Allah subhanho wa Taala draws our attention to locusts. And he says who Shah Abbas

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

Joon amin, Al Qaeda, see

00:11:41--> 00:12:17

their AI sites will be humbled, they will be coming out of their graves like locusts walking out of their holes. Imagine when we look at locusts coming out in the rainy season, coming out of their little holes one after the other they do not stop Do they? Allahu Akbar. And in no time we see the whole place covered with all locusts. Allah describes our resurrection in the same way imagine Today we are sitting in this message Mashallah, we are plenty number. If all the Muslims of Cape Town had together, it would take us a long time to bring them together, and even a longer time to disperse thereafter.

00:12:19--> 00:12:59

And if we were together the Muslims of South Africa, the Muslims of Southern Africa, the Muslims of the globe right now, it would require a large space. Just imagine when we go to Mecca for oma for Hajj, how many millions of people we see definitely looks like locusts. But those are not all the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What about the non Muslims? What about those who have died in the past the billions and trillions of people who have been buried in the soil of this earth? What about when they are all resurrected? Imagine Allahu Akbar only Allah knows the exact number but Allah says I will resurrect all of them. And that is why he says that one day of the AMA, will be as

00:12:59--> 00:13:26

long as 50,000 years from amongst the years that we count yet it will just be one day the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he will serve justice completely just in one day, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make a stand up for justice at all times. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes that and in this Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala in fact the same surah Allah has made mentioned a beautiful verse, all of a sudden.

00:13:31--> 00:13:43

This verse has two meanings. The first is we have made this poron very easy to memorize. Is there anyone from amongst you who are going to attempt to memorize the Quran?

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those?

00:13:48--> 00:14:32

I am sure all of us have memorized at least Surah Al Fatiha we've said it in the past and at least the other short sutras let us be determined to memorize a line a day a verse a day, a small surah a week, a surah in the year so at least we will be moving in heading some way inshallah May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says we have made the Quran simple to memorize. It is impossible to recite the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the manner that they can be recited. It is impossible to recite any other book in the same way. Impossible. Word for word full stop exclamation mark the apostrophes and so on. Absolutely everything and so many people on

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

the globe have memorized this Quran. It is the miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:37--> 00:14:53

the second translation of the same verse, Allah says, We have made the score an easy to understand. Is there anyone from amongst you who is going to take heed and to understand the lessons and to change their lives? Allahu akbar

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

wa Correa sunlen coronelli victory for Hello

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

decades we have made the Quran easy to learn to understand is there anyone from amongst you who is going to understand and take heed? Allahu Akbar, this month of Ramadan is passing and it is passing very fast we have now grown close to the last few days of this month.

00:15:20--> 00:15:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala might not allow us to see the last day of Ramadan he might take us away. And this is why one of the most powerful verses that we read tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Al Haddad addresses myself and yourselves and Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

Adam Neely Lavina man oh

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

boo boo.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

Amina, how

00:15:54--> 00:16:38

is it not the time when the hearts of the believers are going to soften has the time not arrived for the hearts of the believers to soften towards the message that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed in this Quran has that time not come for me to change to come closer to Allah has the time not come for you to change to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala we have heard the verses of the Quran we have read the signs of Allah subhanahu wa taala we have had on a daily basis explanations of verses of the Quran telling us turn turn this reminder after that Allah showed us how he destroyed the previous nations. Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us the examples of add and remove the people of

00:16:38--> 00:17:01

Salah the people of loot the people of shade, the people of all the other messages around and so on. rune Harmon Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us those examples of how he has destroyed people. When are we going to change what are we waiting for? This is the question is asking us am I waiting for my health to disappear? When I become old then I might turn What if I don't see that old age?

00:17:03--> 00:17:14

If I have wealth am I waiting for that wealth to go away? Before I turn to Allah Allah someone you saved my wealth now helped me This is why the I didn't say stay out of Illallah era.

00:17:15--> 00:17:52

We've mentioned this hadith in the past, get close to Allah at times of ease and the times of difficulty you will find Allah subhanho wa Taala very close to you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala become close to us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is asking this question and it is not coincidentally in the last parts of the Quran because now we've read the whole Quran. We are close to the end and Allah is saying Come on, is your heart not softening? Aren't you going to make that pledge and promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah I have this bad way that bad quality I am not reading my Salah I'm not doing this not dressing properly. Yeah Allah I promise you that today is the day I am

00:17:52--> 00:18:12

turning From this day on my five Salah is in place. I'm going to dress appropriately and I'm going to cut everything that is haram in my life. Yeah Allah I have learned the lesson we will see the doors of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala opening for us, or do we want to be like those similar to Freetown when Freetown after he saw the angel of death, and then he said,

00:18:15--> 00:18:52

in fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala told him when he saw the angel of death, and he became a believer at that time, Allah says, No, it's too late. Now it is too late. You've already seen the angel. are we waiting for the angel to come to us and tell us you know what you're going in 10 minutes time start engaging in Toba? That won't happen. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So this is the message tonight. The question I need to ask myself tonight, and this is a very auspicious night. And the question you need to ask yourselves tonight, as I've said, very auspicious night. When am I going to turn? What do I need? What other signs do I want from Allah? subhanho wa Taala What am I

00:18:52--> 00:19:36

waiting for? As it is he's given me this and that? am I waiting for it to go away? One by one. Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can take heed. So this verse has repeated itself a few times, in different wordings. As we've said, the one says, We have made this Quran easy to understand anyone from amongst you, is ready to understand it and take heed. That's the one verse, the other verse has the time not come, has the time not come for the hearts of the true believers to soften up towards the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah subhanho wa Taala opens a very, very beautiful surah wherein the verses rhyme, and I'm sure a lot of us heard it

00:19:36--> 00:19:51

and enjoyed it. So to Rahman, the question there, Allah subhanho wa Taala asks us again, I've given you so much. I've given you everything you have. Do you still deny the favors of your Lord forbid a

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

coma

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

which is it

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

Have the gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you, oh man and oh Jin, do you deny? Is there anything you deny that this is not from Allah? This is from me, Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us not from those who deny His gifts, but somehow if we take a careful look in our lives, we can always improve because we have been taught by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that those who transgress they are denying the favours of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are denying the status that Allah subhanho wa Taala should be given. In fact, they are denying what Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted them the favors granted on them. Because imagine when someone does good to you,

00:20:42--> 00:21:22

and you disobey that person, have you done any justice? They know when people give us a car or a house or some money or a salary, we become faithful to them automatically. We won't say a word against them, even if they are wrong. Sometimes we become weak. We don't even want to say a word against them because we know where our bread is buttered. We know exactly where it's buttered. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. We should be from amongst those who realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala comes first before everything else. It is Allah azza wa jal May He grant us the ability to turn to him. Ironically, sometimes we tend to enjoy the recitation of Surah Rahman, but we missed

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

the whole message. The message is, are you denying the gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala turn to Allah? Do you know what Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Rahman, he says, You are often moogerah mo nabeshima, whom the criminals shall be known by their signs on the day of the AMA, and they will be driven to Johanna. When you see prisoners, they are normally dressed in very distinct clothing so that they cannot escape in a rush. On the day of tiama, they shall be criminals who will be very distinct, everybody will know these people are for Johanna Mallanna. Do that to us. Allah speaks about that in Surah Rahman, we don't want to be the criminals. And Allah speaks about his power. And

00:22:00--> 00:22:05

the good news is more than anything else, Allah describes Jenna in Surah Rahman.

00:22:06--> 00:22:24

Every time the punishment is mentioned, Allah overtakes it with his mercy in every single way. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the gifts that are prepared for the believers in general, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a point of note in Surah Rahman, Allah says, are a boon machine economy.

00:22:25--> 00:23:09

Remaining load of the two East's and Lord of the two wastes, we may ask, we are the two beasts and we are the two wastes we only know of one east and west. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us that he knows his creatures better than us. In winter, the rising point of the Sun is different to that of summer, and in in summer, the setting of the sun is different to that of winter. slight difference, we will notice it in fact, not a slight difference, a huge difference. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding so he speaks of the two points of the rising of the sun, and the two points of the setting of the sun Allahu Akbar. That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:23:09--> 00:23:41

a boon machines are a boon Marie Bane, early winter and early summer. Study the precise rising point of the Sun and the setting of the sun you will notice it is different from the early winter. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to turn to him and may He except October, then Allah subhanho wa Taala promises the one who has feared the status of Allah didn't we speak moments ago of the status of Allah subhanho wa Taala walima Waldman Hama comma b Jun.

00:23:44--> 00:24:05

The one who is conscious of the status of his creator shall have two genders, two gardens. have as many gardens as you want. Once we entered Jenna, fee Hama, Tasha he was there whatever the soul desires, the soul shall have Allahu Akbar, you can start bringing up your list from now.

00:24:06--> 00:24:25

And hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala give us all Jenna, the next surah Allah describes and waqia the final hour the last time and the day of judgment and Allah subhanho wa Taala in salatu wa presents a solid message that on that day men shall be divided into three groups

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

work as well.

00:24:30--> 00:24:42

For as many men ottima Manor was MIT ma mesh ama was savvy akunis Boo.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

Boo. Allah speaks of two categories of people who will enter gender and one category who will enter Johanna Didn't we say that the mercy of Allah overtakes his punishment. Allah subhana wa

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Allah says, On the day of TMI, everyone will be given their books, their accounts, everyone will be given their books, those who will be given their books on their right hand Allah makers from amongst

00:25:12--> 00:25:54

those are known as us How will you mean the people who will be given their books, the right hands hamdulillah then they are established among the people who will be given their books on the left hand, they must know automatically as they get their books on the left side. May Allah protect us all they must know we have failed, Allah save us. Then Allah describes a third category those known as acerbic una sabi goon, those who came first before everyone, they started all the goodness, when everything was young, they were the ones who took the leading role, the Sahaba Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. Those we mentioned yesterday, those who took part in the Battle of

00:25:54--> 00:26:36

battle, those who made hegira first, and inshallah it will apply to those who start the Islamic activity because when you start up something, it's very difficult in those difficult times the people who did it are not equal to those who come in later on. When everything is flowing, and they jump onto the roller coaster, they will also have a reward. But the ones who started it the fathers of that goodness, those are known as una sadhu. Those who started the goodness May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those who initiate goodness every time. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes these three categories of people. Also, one of the categories meaning the third category, a savvy

00:26:36--> 00:27:19

foreigner savvy when it is said those who are young as muslimeen and they grew up in their youth, they did not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. From the very beginning, they were found in the obedience of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about him through the tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in another Hadith, where he says there will be seven types of people that Allah will shade on the day of the AMA. He will grant him the shade of his Ash on the day of Tiana one of them is Shah Boone Nasha de vida de la heeta. Allah, that youngster who grew up in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our youth and

00:27:19--> 00:27:33

all of us. And may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgive us. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong in the same surah Allah subhanho wa Taala questions us asking us Who has created you?

00:27:34--> 00:27:44

The semen the drop of semen thereafter being created into a perfect human being who did that? Did you do it? Or did we do it? Low accomodates Allah?

00:27:45--> 00:28:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the fact that he causes death. And still people who die feel that no, they were the creators. Yet they are dead around what did he say? He told the people and are buku money. I am the highest drop that you have low Akbar and he knew when his leg was painting he knew my leg is so I can't do anything about the pain that I have in my knee. And still he is saying I'm Rob of the whole world love Akbar. Look at our man is May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all understanding. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala asks us take a look at the crop of a

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

Tesla owner who

00:28:32--> 00:28:42

Allah says look at what you have sown. Look at the crops, the seeds that you have sown. When the crop comes up, is it you that causes it to come up or us allies asking?

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

Allah says if we wanted, we could have destroyed it or we could have made it an edible? And Allah subhanho wa Taala asks us about the rain

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

tomorrow

00:28:55--> 00:29:08

lanita shabu Do you see the water that you drink? Who brought it down? Did you bring it down? Or did we bring it down? If we wanted Allah says Luna Shiva, Jana?

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

fellow Natasha.

00:29:13--> 00:29:53

If we wanted we could have made it undrinkable. You wouldn't be able to drink it. Take a look at some water. It has too much salt in it. People can drink it. They need to use these desalination plants in order to purify the water before they can drink it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that's a gift of Allah, who made that water come down? Allah says look at the fires that you can do. Who causes that fire to burn? Is it you ask Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us the ability to comprehend the status and the fact that he is in absolute control. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala. After having spoken about these three categories of people that we mentioned, even at the end

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

of the same surah, Allah makes mention of the three categories again, and he makes mention of what he's prepared for those three categories. May Allah

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

Anahata Allah makers from any one of the two that are going into January Sharma.

00:30:05--> 00:30:19

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala has spoken about spending in his path in the next Surah Surah Al Hadid, the surah named after steel, steel, the iron, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, law is

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

common in fact,

00:30:37--> 00:30:51

those who spent their wealth before the victory of Makkah, when times were tough, they still spent their wealth and they fought in the course of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are not equivalent to those who spent later on when times were easy.

00:30:52--> 00:31:08

Didn't we mentioned that moments ago that when we initiate something it's difficult sometimes those difficult stages who were the founders at that time, Allah will reward them inshallah abundantly because they struggled and strived later on those who came in they will also have reward Allah says

00:31:11--> 00:31:52

both groups we have inshallah we have kept in store for them goodness, and we give them glad tidings, we promised them goodness, both groups, but the group that started is far more virtuous than those who came later. Here. Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioning the virtue of those who made hegira was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and those who accepted Islam before the victory of Makkah. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of that, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes a comparison of this dunya and I will end with this comparison but it is a very beautiful comparison. Allah subhanho wa Taala says I would like you to know Allah says

00:31:53--> 00:31:55

you should know what should you know

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

and

00:31:58--> 00:32:02

to do Nia la Ibu Allah who was enough?

00:32:10--> 00:32:23

We want you to know the similitude of this dunya What is it? It is play and amusement? The dunya Allah is describing it, listen very carefully, it is play and amusement, law Even

00:32:24--> 00:32:34

then, it is beauty was in attune? What fr columbiana comm then it is competition between you in what? in wealth and in children.

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

The example sounds quite similar. Let's go slightly deeper into it. When a child is born, what happens? Do they start with the toys that are more complicated or simple toys? They start with something simple, a rattle that makes a little noise level it's known as life to play law who is more complicated play. As you grow older, you know more interested in a rattle child grows to seven years they want to remote control car Allah speaks of life first, then he says then you get too low. This is the example of the junior you get to know who that is now the computer games and so on and other amusements and so on. Then what happens you get to teen age when you get to teenage What are

00:33:12--> 00:33:50

you interested in Xena tune beautification, you become conscious of yourself male and female, you know how you look? And you know what you weigh and you want to impress everybody else that Allah subhanho wa Taala make us understand so Allah gives that as the third step was enough then now you have everything now you started working what do you do the father the father means you start now boasting one another I've got more than him more than him in what what I feel I'm Wally in wealth Oh, I got a lot my Father has given me so much and I got so much you know now I've earned then what happens? You earn you start boasting and bragging what type of cars you drive and what type of this

00:33:50--> 00:34:26

you have and that you have and after a while you get married. When you get married? What happens now you become old. When you start becoming old and you start filtering and weathering. Allah says now you still boast and brag about what Allah did about your children. I've got 10 children, they all doctors, they all plumbers. Do you know every time we speak about doctors and plumbers, there is no virtue of a doctor above a plumber. Remember that? And there is no virtue of a plumber above a doctor. No one must feel that no you know what we are being spoken every day and it seems like virtue is being given to the doctors over the plumbers know that example has appeared three or four

00:34:26--> 00:34:40

times in these sessions but while law he in a Croma come in the law here at koco well law he the most honored from amongst you are those who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala even if it happens to be a big man who collects the rubbish from our house.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us understanding. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here makes mention of this dunya and how then people become boastful about their children while their children because now you can boast about wealth when you die, your children will take it over anyway. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the beautiful

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

So, as we said in the past, when an example is given in the Quran, it fits 100%

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

and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and he gives the similar to later on after that, and he says,

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

Come masala Ethan and Jebel Kufa, Roberto,

00:35:19--> 00:36:06

ie Jew, Fatah, Hamas, Fatah from a akuna Tama, Allah says similar to that rainfall, which makes the farmers happy that word kuffaar is used here to refer to the farmers. That rainfall which makes the farmers happy then you find the seeds grow and Mashallah you find the green crop, it is strong, and you find it swaying and it is literally dancing in the wind, then it comes up exact example of the human being. And if it comes up and you don't have a seat at the right time, what happens? It then grows old, it starts bending and it actually becomes yellow and it starts withering, and then it is useless. Allahu Akbar. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us understanding everyone has to grow old.

00:36:06--> 00:36:17

Don't be frightened of old age. Ask yourself, have I prepared for meeting my Arab sallallahu wasallam ah Baraka la Vina Mohammed Muhammad subhana wa handys to panic alohomora Hamdi Ganesha to Allah Allah Allah
