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

Victor 24 to 28 salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato

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

Bismillah al Rahman al 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

00:01:03--> 00:01:17

was only recently Milan Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi agema in complete blessings and salutations be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us as well. And our offspring honor the

00:01:18--> 00:01:28

beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners. Allah subhanho wa Taala has commenced to Ratan mujer de la la mujer de la

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

in a very interesting manner.

00:01:32--> 00:01:45

We all know that Allah subhanho wa Taala watches everything he knows everything he listens to everything. And Allah subhanho wa Taala no one can hide from him.

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

There was once a lady who came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:01:52--> 00:02:01

This lady was married. And we all know that it is difficult for married women to complain about their husbands when their husbands are harassing them in one way or another.

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

The little harassments on a daily basis May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:02:08--> 00:02:36

It is difficult for a woman to come up and complain about the one who is supposed to be protecting her. The one who is supposed to be providing for her. But after some time they build up the courage. So one such woman known as Hola, Ventus Allah, Allahu Allah built up the courage and she came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala rasulillah salam, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I have got a problem. There is a crisis in my home.

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

What is that crisis?

00:02:40--> 00:02:48

My husband has lost interest in me to the degree that now he passes comments saying that you are just like my mother, and he stays away from me.

00:02:50--> 00:03:07

Who can I go to? Who can I tell? What should I do? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave her some good advice. Look, be patient bear patients. Try this. Try that. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala is with those who bear patients and the advice that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave her

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

but she complained and she continued to dispute to say now it's too much.

00:03:13--> 00:03:24

He has now made a similarity between myself and his mother. How is that possible? He's trying to tell me that I am a Muharram to him, so he will not sleep with me basically.

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam waited.

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

As this woman began to leave gibreel Allah is Salatu was Salam came down with powerful vs.

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

Code a semi colon it to JD no caffeine.

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

Jackie.

00:03:50--> 00:04:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala has heard the lady who has come to you complaining about her husband, and she is complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We will show her the way out.

00:04:03--> 00:04:45

This verse is so powerful, it brings tears to the eyes. And it brings comfort to those women who are being oppressed, that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what you are going through. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will assist you and it also presents a very stern warning to those men who take advantage of the vulnerability of the women and they continue harassing them and troubling them. They cannot speak to their own parents sometimes. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows their plight. May Allah protect us all. We should never be oppressing the women folk. This is why it is very important that if we have problems we should solve them. Let us admit where we are wrong as menfolk

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

and this does not give the green light to the women folk to say that now every problem the men are wrong and the women are correct, no. But even where the women folk are wrong will lie for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to change our

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

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us stronger. And Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed that particular husband to say that you must fast as a punishment and a penalty for that statement of yours for two consecutive months, two consecutive months without missing a single day in between.

00:05:21--> 00:06:12

Amazing and if he was not able to do that there were other issues that he would have engaged in Allah subhanho wa Taala makes that clear in this particular surah. And this is why the surah is called either al Majid Allah which means the dispute that complaint that literal argument about the husband, or al mujer de la after the woman herself known as the woman who came to you with that dispute. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us in this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the secret meetings that we have. And he says Alam de la jolla la Murphy sama wati wa murfin Do they not know that Allah knows everything in the skies and on earth? May akumina Giovanna sat in the

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

room

00:06:13--> 00:06:18

in this room, do they not know that whenever they are four allies,

00:06:20--> 00:06:26

whenever there are five allies, the six allies or watch full, we can never ever hide from Allah.

00:06:27--> 00:06:33

We need to be conscious of our actions even in our own bedrooms. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us.

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next surah, which is Surah to Hashem.

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the wealth that was given to the Muslim mean.

00:06:46--> 00:07:02

If you take a look at Islamic history, there was a time when the Muslims were driven out of Makkah, they had to engage in Egypt fulfill the hegira they left their properties, they left their wealth and they were forced out of their houses. And then there was a time

00:07:04--> 00:07:20

when Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted them to retaliate and to get back whatever was taken from them. And as they were getting it back, Allah subhanho wa Taala dictated terms to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is how you shall split the wealth.

00:07:21--> 00:07:43

And after making mention of all these economic rules, rules pertaining to the financial assets of the Muslim mean, how they must be handled and what should happen. Allah subhanho wa Taala says why he has decreed those laws of Islamic economics. He says Kayla Hakuna dula

00:07:50--> 00:08:38

coil so that wealth does not remain in the hands of the rich forever and ever. For that reason, the rich have to give to the poor and must assist the poor and they will come times when Allah will might make those who have not have any more May Allah protect us and they will come a time when those who are poor will become multimillionaires. All this is a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala the days cannot remain the same that is a guarantee from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So I'm sure in our lives we've seen examples of tycoons whose grandchildren are begging on the streets and examples of those who have very humble beginnings who are now tycoons May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased

00:08:38--> 00:09:05

with us because the criteria is the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala must be achieved. May Allah subhanho wa Taala really be pleased with us whether you have or don't have, if Allah is pleased with you, there is nothing more than you need in your life. May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with us. And that is why Allah speaks of the poor people who are those who are poor, the Maha jurien after they were driven out of their homes, Allah makes mention of their qualities and praises them in Surah Tasha

00:09:07--> 00:09:11

Lil fukada in Mohan Jean alladhina

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

una una

00:09:19--> 00:09:19

una

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

una

00:09:27--> 00:09:51

una Allah subhana wa Taala speaks of the Menagerie and he says those poor Mahajan who are driven out of their homes, their properties where you saved from them, they were driven out of their homes and their land they made hegira for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They assisted Allah cause and they assisted directly the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah uses one word to describe them.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Those are truthful they have fulfilled their covenant

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

They are they are really, really truthful. They have stood up to their word Allahu Akbar, may Allah make as truthful as well.

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

Not forgetting the answer, who are the unsung, those whom the Mahajan went to

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

imagine, there was such a huge movement of human beings from one city to the other.

00:10:22--> 00:10:55

Nowadays, we have the UNHCR, United Nations High Commission for refugees, something of that nature, where they still cannot solve the refugee crisis of the globe. They leave the people intense and they feed them. Well. Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala use us to help those who have been displaced. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from those who are driven out of our own homes. But if we look at how asuma sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the matter, it was not even a problem.

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

Ah ha, Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abena Mahajan.

00:11:03--> 00:11:42

When he arrived in Madina, munawwara he looked at the residents of Medina. And he picked them up one by one and he chose for every family, one family from amongst the Mahajan. You take them into your house and look after them. Allahu Akbar. So double the population of Medina. Suddenly without even noticing that we all have guests Alhamdulillah if all of us here in Cape Town, have a guest in our homes, will the others notice they won't notice until we get that maybe in the machine then we will see Mashallah, there are people from all over who are here. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam solved the problem. And Allah subhanho wa Taala praises the answer.

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

What is the quality of the answer? Allah subhana wa Taala speaks about it. When levena turbo da one

00:11:52--> 00:12:07

company, you have boon among him, they love those who came to them, they love their guests. When a guest comes we should be getting happy. It is a sign of Baraka. It is a sign of the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

Some of those

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

guests came to them. They were worried. They were worried that maybe they have done deeds that were unacceptable. So allies keeping away from them the honor of hospitality.

00:12:22--> 00:12:29

With us, we hope that is the case that we regard it as an honor. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I don't have

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

to tell you

00:12:37--> 00:12:43

what, oh, can I be him? kasasa Allahu Akbar, Allah says, in their hearts,

00:12:44--> 00:13:04

they do not find any need for what Allah has given them when someone else needs it. So Allah has given us food, and I look at it, I need it, but someone else also needs it. The answer were from amongst them who happily gave it away, knowing that we might even die of hunger.

00:13:05--> 00:13:37

Allah says you Runa Allah and fusi him they gave preference to others over themselves want to kind of be in kasasa though they had a dire need for what they were giving away. How many of us can do that? Allahu Akbar. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala has not tested us with that because it's difficult for us to get to that level. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding that he chose the answer because he knew what he wanted to achieve from them. And Allah He they achieved it with the assistance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:38--> 00:14:05

Allah subhanho wa Taala then speaks about those who follow thereafter and Allah subhanho wa Taala praises all of them. We hope and pray that we are also included from amongst those who came thereafter. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us true followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then Allah subhanho wa Taala wounds all of us very interesting verses I'm sure most of us know these verses of my heart. Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:14:09--> 00:14:10

de la

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

luna soon.

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

Nevada law.

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

Oh you believe be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala your Creator be conscious of him. And every single one of you should prepare for tomorrow. Each one of you should look into what you have prepared when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. What are you going to give him? What are you going to tell him? How are you going to answer your questions? Every single one of us must ask ourselves that question. How am I going to respond to the questioning when Allah subhanho wa Taala asks me am I prepared

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

For the day of piano, if we really look at that verse and we put it into practice, automatically we will stay away from Hara and automatically we will be fulfilling our duties and we will be engaging in excess good deeds preparing for the next day meaning for the future, when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:21--> 00:16:02

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how had that Koran being revealed in the Quran that we read, had it been revealed onto a mount, that mount would have humbled itself and probably crumbled with the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas the Quran has been revealed to men, some of us we don't even bat an eyelid and our hearts don't even tremble when we hear the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala being recited, yet, the other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala the walls and the sand the mounds understand the greatness of this word, low.

00:16:21--> 00:17:06

Amazing, the power of the Quran, that is the verse we translated just before we recited it, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us all. And at the end of that surah Allah makes mention of lots of his names and qualities, and I'm sure a lot of us memorize some of those verses. Beautiful verses who Allahu la de la ilaha illa who it is he Allah there is none besides Him and after that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of some of his names and his qualities, it is important that we get to know the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala we understand them and we believe in them and we use them to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala it is not impossible to learn one name a day, one name

00:17:06--> 00:17:29

every day, ponder over it, use it to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong. The next one, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how our families and our relations will not help us nor will they help anyone else on the day of the Yama in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:39--> 00:17:39

Yeoman.

00:17:42--> 00:18:11

On that day when Allah subhanho wa Taala judges between people, he says, your lineage will not come to your assistance. My father was a rich man. No, that's got nothing to do with today. Meaning with the day of piano, I was from a very noble home My dad was a president or a leader or prime minister or the Imam in the masjid. No, that will not help each one will answer his or her own questions. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on me and you

00:18:12--> 00:18:43

and may Allah subhanho wa Taala make that which will help be there for us. Those who have followed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will argue and fight and intercede on their behalf. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has spoken about it many times. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those who deserve it. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how

00:18:44--> 00:19:01

the enemies of Islam we should not be friend, those who are open and outright enemies of Islam. We should not be friendly. Allah subhanho wa Taala species in meaning mentions it in the first verse of the surah and in the last verse as well.

00:19:03--> 00:19:15

But that does not mean that we hate those who are not Muslims no ways Allah clarifies that in the same surah la Yun ha como la mornin Latina la musica De Luca COVID de la mujer

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

de comm

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

Babu moto Casa por la him in Allah.

00:19:24--> 00:19:52

Allah does not stop you from being good. And from fulfilling the complete rights of those who have not fought you as Muslim in those who are non Muslims. They didn't fight you they didn't drive you out of your homes, they did not attack you in any way. They are not from amongst those whom you must not be friend meaning you can have a limited friendship with them. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In como la guanine, lovey levena pata Lu confit de

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Allah says he prohibits you from befriending those

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

who have come out to fight you, who have come out to kill you who have come out to drive you out of your homes, it would be foolish for members of one army, when they know the enemy is coming forth, and some of them say no, but those are our friends. Let's go and party with them very foolish. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is making mention of that here. But still, Allah says,

00:20:22--> 00:21:02

We must be just there is a difference between friendship and justice. Justice is for friend and foe when your friend has done something wrong. It does not mean because he's your friend, you must now take his side that is haram. And when your enemy has done something correct, and he is right, it does not mean because he's your enemy, you must side with the other. No, that is also injustice. Allah say stand up for justice, whether it is for you or against you, Justice must always be saved and delivered. But when it comes to friendship, we need to understand the limits of friendship in Islam, may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us befriend those who are killing us and fighting us but

00:21:02--> 00:21:18

at the same time, may we be of the best of character and conduct even when it comes to the non Muslims, may we be those who are helpful to them, and who are polite to them, who can literally give the true picture of Islam that these people are very, very helpful. Remember,

00:21:19--> 00:21:31

some people and this is a very important clarification. Some people come out and they say you know all the non Muslims, we must kill them. stokfella that is a dangerous statement absolutely unacceptable in Islam.

00:21:33--> 00:21:55

There were no Muslims at one stage. If that was the command, how would we have accepted Islam? How are our forefathers going to have accepted Islam? Those who utter those statements, they don't understand the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They are too lazy to go out and to serve the cause to try and call people towards goodness, they would prefer to eradicate them.

00:21:56--> 00:22:14

What an insult to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We could never have been taught to eradicate those around us impossible because there was a stage when only Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one who had accepted prior to him having gone to his own wife Khadija been deployed with rhodiola Juana who was the first to accept the call.

00:22:16--> 00:22:58

And even with his own companions, he made sure he went out of his way to be good, yes, those who then lifted the spears he defended, and he only defended when Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted him to defend as we have seen in verses that we have spoken about in the last few days. So it is very important that we display the best character and conduct and we adjust to the non Muslims. And we make sure that we are not guilty of portraying the wrong image of this beautiful religion of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us torch bearers and flag bearers of this Deen so that just by looking at us, we can have large groups of non Muslims who can realize that this is the truth, and

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

they can turn the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informs us while la de la,

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

la,

00:23:08--> 00:23:53

la, la, la come in for more in Nam, la he if Allah has used you to guide one human being, it's better for you then all the most expensive and valuable material items that this dunya holds just one person. So imagine if we were to go out and smile and we were to be helpful and we were to be honest and trustworthy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us very, very good. So this particular surah is clarifying and making it very clear to say there are certain categories of people that we regard as enemies, but not all the non Muslims are that the majority of them are in fact, innocent people who are waiting for the message of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala use us to serve the

00:23:53--> 00:23:53

cause.

00:23:54--> 00:24:03

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next era, speaks about hypocrisy in the opening verses. So to soften Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

levena Manali mata kulu nama

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

kabu Rama Tata De La Paloma

00:24:21--> 00:25:00

Oh believers, why is it that you are uttering that which you do not fulfill? Why is it that your statements are heading in one direction and your deeds are heading in another direction? Why? Allah subhanho wa Taala says that is a very serious crime in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is warning us from hypocrisy. We say we are Muslim. We should live as Muslims. We have given someone our word. We must live by it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us honest. What a big insult. Sometimes we have people who appear to be brilliant Muslims.

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

ambassadors of Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam dressed absolutely islamically and the people will tell you you know what this man frequents the casinos. What an insult to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam or they will tell you this is the most dishonest businessman stay very far away from him yet he looks so religious May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, it is very important that we tackle both the exterior and the interior. There is no point in tackling the exterior when the interior is hollow like bamboo. And no point in tackling the interior when the exterior does not even show that we are Muslim in May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us Muslims who are proud to be

00:25:42--> 00:25:48

Muslims. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us hypocritical. So Allah subhanho wa Taala after that,

00:25:49--> 00:25:53

he asked, he asks a question in the same surah

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

Yeah.

00:26:04--> 00:26:56

Any of you who believe should I not show you that business or those dealings that you can engage in? That will save you from a very painful punishment? Allahu Akbar. Nowadays when a robbery has occurred in our house once we employ the top security firm, and on top of that, we will put in our homes, the top systems the senses that will sense a rat which will run across the yard. We have those systems why we are worried about any form of payment, any form of pain, we are worried about it. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us. So Allah is telling us we are so worried about this dunya for one thief to walk into our yard forget about stealing. If you have noticed the thief

00:26:56--> 00:27:18

finished you won't sleep that night. It's effect. So if we are so worried about that, what about the punishment of the era where they will be servants and the descriptions given in the Quran, where there will be snakes and scorpions awaiting those who have transgressed Allah subhanho wa Taala says wait, I will show you the system to protect yourself from that.

00:27:20--> 00:27:27

Don't mean Oh Nabina Sunni Moto G Dona feasability, Amal Kumar.

00:27:30--> 00:27:59

believe in Allah and follow the messenger believe in the messenger and struggle. Struggle yourselves with your wealth with your bodies struggle to achieve the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala struggle to become better Muslims May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept that struggle from us. So our whole life must be a struggle. The word jihad is misunderstood by many, sometimes intentionally misinterpreted by the non Muslims. Jihad means a struggle.

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

It does not necessarily solely and only mean a holy war that might be included in the term. But the greater part of the interpretation of that word is to do with the struggle to be the best of people to be the example that when people look at us automatically, they say that man, I'd like to be like him, Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us those whose struggle is made easy and may He accepted from us thereafter. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it here. I mentioned these verses a few days ago and I said Allah uses the term business. Why? Because many people when it comes to business, they are quick to listen. They think that it is to do with the dollar and the

00:28:42--> 00:28:53

RAND and gold and silver. So Allah subhanho wa Taala uses that term here to draw our attention. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all understanding. Then the next year I saw to Juma

00:28:54--> 00:29:37

where Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mentioned the importance of Joomla and the fact that once a week we must attend the masjid, so that we can meaning once a week we must come early to listen to the hookman the talk so that we can refresh and we can listen to the message once again and it can give us the dose that we need in sha Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can come to Juma so early Do you know there is a competition every Friday marwaha visa una vaca Nakamura Baba Donna, there is a long hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever arrives first for Juma as though they have sacrificed one big camel for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

whoever arrives in that in the first moments for them, there is the same reward, then the ones who come later, as though they have sacrificed the smaller animal, the ones who come later as though they have sacrificed the chicken, the ones who come almost towards the end meaning just before the lecture starts as though they have sacrificed an egg and thereafter when the Imam gets up even the angels who are writing the name

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

Close the books and they come in to listen to the lecture. So now those who have come late, the Juma might be done, the forum is achieved but the greater reward they did not achieve it Why? Because even the angels did not register that these people had attended. So it's important Allah subhanho wa Taala names 100 surah after surah to Juma meaning after tomorrow, and he says,

00:30:22--> 00:30:28

either no de la sala Timmy. Giamatti, Isla de la.

00:30:31--> 00:31:04

When the call is called for jumada dan is called leave all your dealings and rush towards the machine. What a command May Allah make us strong? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us win that competition I spoke about moments ago at least once in our lives. At least once in our lives. Let's get here from early morning to say Allah I want to win the competition today. So at least once our names will be written, that this person has sacrificed a camera. We know that it's difficult to find camels in this part of the world. But there will be people in our cities who will be sacrificing cameras every single week.

00:31:06--> 00:31:14

Allahu Akbar May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next surah meaning the sutra is named after

00:31:15--> 00:31:29

the hypocrites themselves. Moments ago we spoke of some qualities of hypocrisy. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala names, the whole surah the surah of the hypocrites and the need, there are some of the qualities of the hypocrites I want to mention one

00:31:31--> 00:32:14

Yes, sir boonah coulissante hatin Allah him every cry, a hypocrite regards it as an attack against him. Listen very carefully. This is a very, very important statement. If I want to know if I'm a hypocrite, or you want to know if you have hypocrisy in you. There is one question when the Imam gets up and speaks, do I feel that he is attacking me? If that is the case, I am wrong. I have hypocrisy in me. There is something my guilty conscience is telling me what that Imam is saying is correct, but because I am committing the sin, so I feel like I am being addressed. Let me go and rectify my ways, but we must never get up and roll our sleeves and say right, I'm going to fix that

00:32:14--> 00:32:51

Imam. Why? Because now he's attacking me. Look, he knows I'm the one who has that type of a business. Why did he say those who sell alcohol? We will not eat at their houses. Why did he say that? He knows that. I'm the only one who sells alcohol Allah protect us. Well, that's a guilty conscience. That means yes, there is something wrong whether he spoke about you or not. Why are you engaged in the sin when a man has committed Zina, and then he runs in for Salah to Juma men Allah protect us. And the Imam is talking about Zina. And coincidentally the Imam says some people now to be loved they will commit Zina and rush to the masjid. That man will look up and he will see he will

00:32:51--> 00:33:03

look everywhere to say what did they see me or what? That is the guilty conscience. May Allah protect us. Why does that happen? Because the one who is involved in sin when sin is being spoken about.

00:33:04--> 00:33:43

He will feel maybe this is being addressed to me. And this is why it is best when you don't even know the Imam and he is speaking about something you are involved in. You must know those words were tailor made by Allah subhanho wa Taala for your ears. And Allah had sent the message for you to remind you, please don't engage in this here is a stranger who has come to tell you that don't do this. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so one of the qualities of the hypocrites, every cry, every scream, every year, every message they regarded against themselves and they feel hurt about it and they want to tackle people about it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the next Torah

00:33:48--> 00:33:56

speaks about In fact, before we get to the next Surah At the end of the same surah Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us about something. He says, when

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

he

00:34:04--> 00:34:49

when the fixed time comes for the expiry of any life, we will never delay neither a second this way nor a second that way. Never. So remember, the prescribed time is there. We need to prepare for our time number one. Number two is when someone passes away in our family, we must never question Allah's decree. Never. That time was there from the day they were born. And even before from when they were in the wombs of their mothers. It was already prescribed when they would be born and when they were going to die. So do not despair. That was a last time it was a plan from Allah subhanho wa Taala we believe and Islam and the man the only religion on the globe that makes it incumbent upon

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

its followers to accept the good and bad faith. We won't question it comes from Allah while he was happy he mean Allahu taala good and bad faith is from Allah. I won't question you

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

I will surrender to it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us strong.

00:35:04--> 00:35:14

Then the next year Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how our children and our wealth become a test for us at times. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in

00:35:16--> 00:36:01

como una Docomo fitna definite definitely your wealth your children, your offspring and in another verse, even your family members, your spouse's all these items are a test. So remember to pass the test. Two things we need to remember one is, we must never give our family members or our wealth or anything that is created preference over Allah subhanho wa Taala. When Allah command comes, it is first then everything else. But at the same time, the second thing to remember is we must never ever oppressed because it is a test. Don't oppress your spouse, don't steal money. Don't do wrong dealings with your wealth, and don't even oppress your children. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:36:01--> 00:36:14

knows absolutely everything as we mentioned at the beginning of tonight's talk, so it's important that we realize both these items, then in the next year, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Allah the surah is named surah Allah

00:36:15--> 00:36:52

May Allah subhanho wa Taala really preserved the marriages of those who have married May Allah subhanho wa Taala help on an Eve like this, those who are having marital turbulence and disputes it is not impossible to solve the problems to forgive and forget and to start a new leaf. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to start a new leaf. One brother just on a lighter note I told him brother you need to start a new leaf. He says but now my pins have stopped working. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us what he meant by that I leave it to you may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding we will use our pens inshallah and we will start on a new leaf without mistakes and

00:36:52--> 00:37:34

hamdulillah wherever we make mistakes we turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So we must remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us regarding Allah don't ever utter the words don't ever utter the words no matter what. When you when you want to divorce, you must first consult Allah ma sit with them, talk to them, have a meeting with them, realize and understand what you are getting into and then divorce solely in the correct way. Otherwise if we utter the words and blurt them with our mouths, we will regret the Hadith says teletoon. Dune Dune was Luna Dune there are three things that even if you are joking about them, they will occur and even if you are being serious about them they

00:37:34--> 00:37:41

will occur and nikka what palapa and the freeing of a slave. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.

00:37:42--> 00:37:48

And in the surah Allah makes mention of the ADA and Allah says, woman, tequila.

00:37:50--> 00:38:04

Raja whoever is going to be Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will show them away and make a way out for them. While mizuko minhang Tula does evil and Allah will grant them through a means that they never dreamed of.

00:38:05--> 00:38:38

What does this mean? Sometimes a woman is divorced and she loses hope now what's going to happen to me Allah says, Don't worry, that was the best thing that could ever happen to you. Allah will open another door for you Be patient. And Allah says if you fear Allah and you are conscious of Allah, very soon, he will open a new door for you from where you did not even imagine. Allahu Akbar. So those whom this problem has happened to me Allah subhanho wa Taala make them strong. The same applies those who engage in what is known as mudslinging after divorce, which is haram in Islam. After a divorce someone asks you what went wrong, you should say look, we will not compatible.

00:38:38--> 00:39:15

That's it. Don't go into details. It is not up to me or up to you to start disgracing someone in public no matter what. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So if we are victims of mudslinging, don't worry, Allah will cleanse your name at one stage in sha Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala neither make us the victims nor the perpetrators. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of woman tequila, Allah who not only when we open the doors, but we will make things easy for that person if they fear Allah, and we will grant him so much goodness May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness, the last two are that we read tonight.

00:39:16--> 00:39:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala in that surah speaks about

00:39:22--> 00:39:29

forgiveness. And Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs all of us a very powerful instruction.

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

Yeah.

00:39:34--> 00:39:37

To boo in Allah.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

Allahu Akbar.

00:39:43--> 00:40:00

We have now come towards the end of Ramadan. What a beautiful verse reminding us Oh you believe repent to Allah, not only repent to Allah, but repent to Allah, true repentance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can see

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

is the month of Ramadan to repent and not just repent a true repentance let's turn to Allah as

00:40:12--> 00:40:14

to why you do.

00:40:18--> 00:40:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala will compensate all your sins and He will grant you Jana in return. How many of us would do that for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah we will all do that for the sake of Allah. Allah Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, he shows us how the wife of the round sought forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same Surah At the end

00:40:43--> 00:40:51

and he says the wife of Iran knew that Iran was on the wrong path. She raised her hands and she says rabine

00:40:54--> 00:41:39

when a genie movie around our money when a genie Minato midvalley me Oh Allah Oh my Rob Oh, my Creator, booed for me make for me, right near you a house. She didn't say build for me a house near you. But she said build for me make for me near you a house because the newness was more important than the house itself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala draws closer and closer to him. And she continues to say save me from Freetown and his deeds and save me from those who are oppresses May Allah subhanho wa Taala also save us from operation and May Allah grant us success in this on this day, this beautiful month of Ramadan wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah

00:41:39--> 00:41:42

Subhana Allah homovanillic Misha to Allah Allah Allah

00:41:43--> 00:41:43

Allah
