In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful All praise is due to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, creator of entire creation. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all and may He forgive us in this blessed month of Ramadan. Honor the rule ama beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners. Tonight we read the first half of the 30th part of the Quran. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept it from us. In these verses Allah subhanho wa Taala has described
the Day of Judgment the last day, and Jenna and Johanna and Allah subhanho wa Taala has spoken about belief in the unseen how men was created, how various other creatures were created all this to draw the attention of the co founder of Makkah at the time, to the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the fact that he does exist, and the fact that we are all going to return to Him, and most of the verses we recited tonight were revealed in muckety muck Rama if you recall, yesterday I had told you that the verses which were revealed in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, short and sharp dealing with certain topics and every time the rhyme changed, the topic changed. Let me commence by giving you these
examples. Let's listen very carefully. I will read to you some verses. And when the top when the tune changes, I will inform you of the topic having changed as well. One naza TiVo one machine potty nashbar was behind these other high has been called in de Silva
Allah subhanho wa Taala is taking all the customs there. Yamato hora de facto
diva. Now, speaking of the last day, the topic has changed. Hulu
una happy, either
howdy Moosa even
bigger photography, cha
cha, cha, cha.
Two separate topics we heard where the tune changed. Now let's listen to the third topic Allah subhanho wa Taala. In those verses the first verses we read he was taking the second verses we read he was speaking about the Day of Judgment, meaning the the last day then he suddenly spoke about Musashi Salaam and found we noticed how all of those verses ended with thee. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says
to him, or in fact, he says in
shall Can I miss
of Roger mean
he speaks of all what he has created, the sky is the earth and everything. Then he says, matter.
All those provisions for you and for your cattle your gifts Allah has given you may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us, then he now changes the topic once again to the last day for either
metal Kumara Allahu Akbar, we take a look at how the verses change the topic changes. Those were the secrets of the verses revealed in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, let me give you another beautiful example before I continue beautiful example from verses we had last night. Listen very carefully. Yeah, you have
be back if I can be watching
be careful as Bill Allah is a blessing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam all those statements when he speaks about the blowing of the trumpet, for either nuclear often
you see how the topic meaning the rhyme change the topic changes.
Then Allah describes that day further Allah kaoma ev, a sci
That day will not be easy, it will be very difficult for the kuffaar to versus describing the day. Now the topic changes again.
the only woman Kanako to wahida tuna Huma
wobba Nina Xu, that woman has to know to me amazing this is the power of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed the solid powerful verses where you find the tune is precisely the same. You will find generally it is one topic. Once the tune changes it is dealing with a subtitle or a different topic altogether. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the power. The verses that were revealed in Makkah, any surah starting with Alhamdulillah was revealed in muckety muck aroma. Ne surah starting with those who have macapa and if not
me, oh, hammy. Oh,
hi Yah, I
saw sa God. All of those were revealed in MK Cthulhu karma besides to Al Baqarah and
all of them were revealed in Macedon mocha Rama, also every surah where the detailed stories of the previous prophets is mentioned was revealed in mccurtain. mocha Rama also ne surah Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses Banu Adam, yeah, Benny Adam revealed in Makati, mocha Rama, any surah Allah subhanho wa Taala has Yeah.
And that surah does not have Yeah, you have Medina Amano. It was revealed in Makkah, Tomoko Rama,
any surah where the Muna 15 I mentioned was revealed in an Madina munawwara any sewer where the rules and regulations the details of Islam are mentioned regarding nica and palate and so on was revealed in Al Madina. munawwara amazing. So there are certain ways of telling where the verses were revealed and where the sutras were revealed. Allahu Akbar May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a little bit of that knowledge as well. Allah subhanho wa Taala in these verses describes the Yama Why does he describe the AMA and believe in the unseen because the kuffaar of Makkah had no belief. They thought man here in La Jolla tuna dunya Namu Tijuana here, Omar akuna illa de according to some of
the verses the Kufa used to say this is the life we are living and we will live in it we will become old enough to enjoy it when we die we are finished. That's it. The only thing that can take us away is time we are not going to be answerable to anyone life comes once so enjoy it because it will not come again. That statement we hear it sometimes nowadays also, may Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us Allah it's a dangerous statement.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of that. Now when people don't have life at all you need to address them, you need to talk to them about what can we start talking to people who don't believe at all about Salah about Zika about Hajj. First we need to call them to believe first we need to call him to Eman. Talk to them about the Presence of Allah. Talk to them about piano talk to them about the resurrection about the last day. Talk to them about those meaning believe in the angels believe in good and bad
faith that it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala belief in the messengers who were sent in the past belief in the books believe in the punishment that was sent to those in the past. Once they believe in all that they are one step closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala then they declare their Shahada. Now, you can talk to them about salah and Zika and the details of Nika and Palak. Because now they are ready for all that. So that is why in Al Madina munawwara The details are mentioned in Makkah, the first years when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was calling people towards Islam. He dealt with these topics, short, sharp verses, I remember mentioning why the verses are short and sharp, because
the kuffaar in Makkah used to block their ears. So when they were standing, listening, one verse was read. Yeah,
that seal as they heard that verse, they, they put their hands back in their fingers back into their ears, but by the time the finger got up, already, the verse was ended. So when they close their ears, it gave them time to think it was already inside the brain. Then when they took their fingers out, thinking that now the verse is over, the next verse came.
By that time, they already went to put their fingers back in the next verse was in their brain, and it was already being processed inside they.
And then when they put their fingers back down, the third verse came in and the fourth one and the fifth one in the same way so the Quran was given to them in doses small doses Allahu Akbar, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the entire Quran. So that is why you find the verses in Makkah extremely short. Listen to this, what lo ha, when lighly
beautiful versus when learning it is difficult for us to describe what effect and impact these verses have on everyone, including ourselves. We know these verses, and we understand a lot of these verses and we know that they have an impact on us to describe the impact is extremely difficult Nowadays, there is research that the non Muslims are doing regarding the impact that the recitation of the Quran has on the body, mind, soul and the blood
and they are coming up with findings May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us all understanding we are gifted to be Muslim, and voila here we have the recitation of the Quran. So soothing, so smooth, so beautiful. Allah subhanho wa Taala has kept Shiva solely in the recitation of the Quran.
May Allah Subhana Allah Allah protect us all. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
Jenna and Johanna in the first surah that we read in tonight's verses Allah subhanho wa Taala describes jahannam and he says la yagoona Athena Elijah, the people who dwell in jahannam shall not taste in it. Mashallah, we can hear the rainfall that is falling May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us all it is quite a steady and solid rainfall. It is a sign of drama and the mercy of Allah azza wa jal may have mercy on all of us inshallah, may He forgive us, it is definitely one of the times of the acceptance of dua is when the mercy of Allah is descending in the form of rainfall it is important that we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for what needs we have, it is a time when Allah
subhana wa Taala responds the call, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us a llama in naka foon Karim and Rahim Allah,
Allah Allah Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of the people of Jana May Allah save us from jahannam and Allah says they will not taste in it any cold, meaning they will not have any low temperatures which come any breeze no breeze at all. No will they ever taste any meaningful drink besides that of blood and pass? May Allah protect us? And after that Allah describes Jenna Didn't I tell you that in the Quran with Johanna misdescribed you have to find a verse of gender where gender is described Allah will speak of jahannam also Allah balances it all the time in order to strike the correct balance between alcove and Raja an email no bueno. Sophia Raja the Hadith says a man is the
balance between the fear of Allah's punishment and the hope in his mercy. Amazingly put, look at how beautifully Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says, a person who only has hope he needs to be fearful of punishment as well and the person who's only so scared, he needs hope in order to drive him to do more and more May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the balance and May Allah grant the Savior all time so Allah subhanho wa Taala describes Jenna and Allah Subhana what Allah says, law is my own opinion Allah, Allah Kiva the people of general will not hear in it any vain talk any vulgar language, no lies, no deception, no cheating, no nothing. Some of them have Assyrian say if you want
to prepare to go to a place where there's no lies Don't lie. You want to prepare to go to a place where there is no vulgar language, don't find your tongue mixed in vulgar language. So it is important we are aiming somewhere if you want to get there you need to control from now so Allah subhanho wa Taala can see that you've been preparing to get to Jenna and he will grant that to us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on all of us, then Allah
subhanho wa Taala speaks about for either.
Kumara when the great catastrophe overtakes the people, when there is a great and huge catastrophe, everything is destroyed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. There are two things one is the last day, the final day the destruction everything will come to an end, myself and yourselves and all creatures, human beings, the skies, the earth, the mountains, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says they will all come to an end that is one issue.
After that destruction, the trumpet shall be blown again after some time, and then everyone will come back up. One of you Sorry, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the blowing into the trumpet. Then he says the manual Fifi O'Hara for either 1pm ui Oh, it shall be blown again. And everyone shall then be resurrected and they will be standing and watching looking. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. So there are two days one is the last day and one is the day of judgment and resurrection. There are two separate days and there is a distance between those two days Allah subhanho wa Taala describes both those days in the verses that we read tonight. And Allah subhanho
wa Taala speaks about the second day in a verse which sounds very similar to the verse we read just now for either
the day when the trumpet shall be blown again, large sound. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, yo maya, Mr. Amin, he was he was happy he was off the bat. Danny, legally marry him in Houma eating
me. On that day, everyone shall run away from their own brothers and sisters and their own fathers and spouses and closest buddies, they will be running away from them, yeah, Allah, each person will be worried about themselves. May Allah Subhana Allah, Allah have mercy on us on that day. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala take us to Allah subhanho wa Taala save us really from the punishment and the severity of that particular day.
Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in one of the other verses we read tonight, regarding a certain practice that was being followed at the time at the time, just pre Islam. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam makes mention of how the people who are granted girls as children as the child was born, they saw it's a girl they buried the child her life gone, they buried the child her life, they were very upset. We mentioned the verses in the Quran, where Allah says when you get a girl, be happy, be happy. And don't be sad, because being sad is like those pre Islamic people.
Those people who used to be very angry, they used to hide they used to bury the child and Allah says, What either no
deal at that child who was killed will be asked why were you killed? Why don't you kill the mufa Syrian speak about how anyone who was oppressed shall be asked, Why were you oppressed? Why were you oppressed? And obviously at times, we won't know why we were oppressed, the little child doesn't know why the child was buried alive, then, who will be brought to book those who are responsible for that particular crime? So Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why does he give the example? Let's listen very carefully. Why does he give the example of a child a girl child who was buried alive, Allah says, she will be asked why. What law he it is to show us that even the weakest of people shall be given
the chance to stand up against those who oppress them.
The child who is helpless, no say nothing. Sometimes we are absolutely helpless allies giving good news to that child to say, Don't worry, today you are oppressed, there shall come a day when you shall be given the authority and the power over those who have oppressed you, we will give you that chance, Allahu Akbar. So that's why the example is given, not of others who are oppressed, but the most vulnerable. That newborn baby who was dumped, Allah is going to ask and Allah is going to give that baby the opportunity to stand up and those who were very strong on that day in the face of this vulnerable, weak little baby, they will be brought to the book.
And they will be punished by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us. This serves as a lesson to all of us. If someone has oppressed you don't worry, a day, a day will come. And if you are oppressing someone stop doing it because the day will come when you might get away in this world. But in the era, you're not going to get away, you will never get away. Allahu Akbar, you might be able to cheat your way out of this dunya but in the era, the grip is there. Allah subhanho wa Taala says yeppoon sanoma even a Massaro in San Jose on that day, wish we can run away. We can go here there is Allah we can go there there is Allah we can go there there is Allah we
are in a fix here.
We are we going to run? So it is important we think of that day. Allah subhanho wa Taala then describes those in fact he tells us Oh insan yeah I you
know masala Kabira being can carry Allah de holla Kaka
Kapha Derek, you know in another verse, Allah says,
have we not given you such a good body? We've given you eyes we've given you a lips and the tongue and so on. Have we not created you in such a beautiful manner? What is it that is making you oblivious of your Creator? What is it that is deceiving you in the face of your own creator? Why don't you realize that you have a creator doesn't that creator who gave you this form and this body and all this goodness? Doesn't that created deserve a little bit of worship? Allahu Akbar.
Allah subhanho wa Taala also says lecanto Kala cornellians and happy x Anita Kumi, we have created men in the best of postures. Imagine if our hands were sticking out of our faces. Imagine if our eyes were on our chests. Just think about it. It would be so absurd, yet we have been created. Perfect. The exact positioning of the eyes, the nose, the lips, the teeth, the mouth, the ears, the hair, absolutely everything, the hands, the fingers, the nails, Allahu Akbar, not one era in the creation of men, not one.
And that creator who created us in this beautiful form. If you go and look at some animals, you might find some animals in a in a different way. If the elephant could speak, or when we look at the elephant, we can see that the nose or the trunk is in a specific place. Would we like to have our noses sticking out our foreheads? Allahu Akbar, and the eyes on the sides of our noses? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding that really we owe him so much for having created us in this form. And that's what he brought the attention to here. He says what is it that's deceiving you? Can't you think we've made the skies the sun, the moon, the earth? Absolutely everything is
there. But men, you who have been given the best of postures, you are the one who's standing away the mountains? No Who has created the mountains they will not disobey? Do you ever find a mountain deciding that now I want to disappear from here and going away only by the will of Allah. A tree does not decide to do anything besides by the will of Allah, the seeds, absolutely all the other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we see around us and we can see around us. Most of them some Han Allah completely under the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala they do not even have the power to disobey.
We call them lifeless, but they don't they are not lifeless. They have a different type of life. They also engage in sudo Allah subhanho wa Taala says what you mean initially in in your sub basin will be handy while Akela Kahuna does be home, every single creature praises us but you people don't understand that praise. You can't hear it. But we are the only ones who don't praise him sometimes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us more conscious. That is why we have the repetition of the Quran the reading of the verses the month of Ramadan so many beautiful occasions Mashallah. So we can remind each other to say, Well, why why are we the ones who are not turning yet we've been given the
best of postures the best we have the brain Subhana Allah, the best brain Allah says that and with the best brain What are we doing? Allahu Akbar? We are ashamed sometimes of what we do. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all strong. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that in these verses and Allah says, What is deceiving you? What is it that is deceiving you don't be deceived. And Allah subhana wa Taala then speaks about the great success in fact in these verses he also speaks about the one who's getting the book on the right. May Allah grant us the book on the right our accounts when you when the accounts are handed out on that day and they being dished out and ours are given
on the right hand you must know automatically we have succeeded and hamdulillah we have succeeded. And if the end if the accounts are given on the left hand or at the back of the DDD meaning behind then you should know that that is the failure that is the greatest Valium Allah protect us. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Medina, mano amilo, slaley hatena hongjun Jamie,
radical fosun cabbie, those who believe and do good deeds they will have gentlemen flowing beneath them shall be rivers, Allah says that is the greatest success. May Allah grant us success. Then Allah warns those the criminals who are the criminals Allah says, Why do you know little Mota Fifi as though he's addressing all of us here and he is destruction be to those who cheat in business. A lot of fun. Those who cheat in business in trade he, why when they are weighing they weigh short. They shortchange the customer and the client they lie they deceive their trading.
He's, he's all full of deception and lying when they give their word they go against it. These are the microphones that Allah speaks about. Allah says destruction between them. Allah says they will laugh at people, but people will laugh at them on the day of piano, meaning you might make a fool of someone in the dunya to shortchange them with the quality of the standard of your goods to lie to them about it. I wanted to say moments ago,
made in Japan when you know, it's made in China, but nowadays that some of the Chinese goods go beyond the the Japanese goods, but the reality is, let's be honest, wherever it's made insane, it's made here. One day, I was buying a watch, and it said, the Swiss made, and I told this man is very cheap. He says, well, it's a, you know, duplicate. So I told him all they have done it so accurately, he told me, you know, what is the easiest thing to imitate? The writing switchmate that's the easiest part of it. The clock was hard, but the writing was the easiest part of it. So that is deception. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us from deception. Really, it is something
we need to think of sometimes we enjoy it. But so long as we know that this is what it is, and we make it clear to the customer and the customer knows Rasulullah Salallahu Salam says, For mbna masataka Boudicca lahoma up man, when the two are open with each other and truthful with each other, Allah will grant and Baraka in that deal. May Allah grant us all Baraka in our deals. And Allah warns us here in levena Gianluca and Amina Latina Manuel Hakuna, the criminals used to laugh at the believers in every single way, whether it's in business and those who can't the others, they are also part and parcel of this verse. And even sometimes when you are believers and you are dressed as
believers appearing as believers, people might laugh at you, Allah says, Don't worry, you will get a day when you will be able to laugh at them as well. So Allah is making mention of that funny Omen levina monomial, Kufa, Hakuna they will come a day, when the believers shall be granted the opportunity to laugh at those who used to laugh at them in the dunya May Allah Subhana Allah Allah, grant us all understanding, we need to also learn to forgive. We need to also understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala has asked us to forgive as far as possible. If we forgive others alone, forgive us in sha Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the soul. And Allah says successful are
those who cleanse their souls. We've spoken about this as well. But there are verses here repeating that. This basically is like a synopsis of the entire message of Eman throughout the Quran, you will find it in the last two parts of the Quran. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is reminding us once again to say look, these are the messages, short, sharp messages, remember them. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about those who deceive. Allah speaks about Allah Shia, who are those? They are those who have cheated. How have they cheated? Allah says would you eat in Kashi at an amulet announcing their faces will be humbled on that day, they will be they will have sweated and worked so hard, but
they will still arrive in jahannam. Who are those those who read Salah in the first stuff but they are doing it to show off to show others those deeds are not counted. Those who might be giving charities to boast May Allah protect us, those deeds are not counted or those who do everything for the sake of Allah but then they have back button this one slandered that one cheated that one deceived that one, all their good deeds are taken and given to the others. Now there are no more good deeds left so the bad deeds of the others are taken and put onto them. They arrived on the day of Fiamma with lots of goodies but before the day was ended, they lost everything and they sholden
other people's bad deeds. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, they shall be taken into jahannam but when they came, they came with lots of deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and not make us from amongst those. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how we should address the orphan child for ammonia team if Allah
Allah Allah, we should all know the status of the orphan child. Whenever we are speaking to that child, we should bear in mind that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, and our coffee Lil Yachty, myka Hatton, even Jenna myself and the one who looks after the orphan child shall be like this, these two fingers the first two fingers, he put them together and he says we will be like this in general, so close. Then he also says when someone comes asking to you remember too big is not dignified in the Sharia. Too big is something that is detested for as long as we are healthy and able try and work and earn your own. But when a beggar does come to you, remember how you react to
them. either give or if you are not giving a good word, but be careful. Don't utter a bad word. That might be a genuine beggar, Allahu Akbar. May Allah protect us all from that habit? And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us those who can earn whatever we are spending and may He make us content and grant us enough.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us about that. Then also, he warns us about those who read salah and they are lazy in that Salah
for weighing in mousseline alladhina humo sala de
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the struction be upon those who want to read Salah in order to show other people. We are making ruku and suddenly someone happens to appear so we straighten our backs properly because we want them to see that we are reading Salah correctly. That is not correct. That's not what we are supposed to be doing that Salah is for Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah make us from amongst those who can take our time when reading Salah for Allah subhanho wa Taala remember when reciting the Quran we must be cited in the correct manner. Beautiful words These are the words of the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala do not intend to rush when it comes to taraweeh or when it
comes to recitation of the Quran because when we choose the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are insulting him Imagine if you are a newsreader on some television station or radio station, and the prime minister or president has a message and you are reading the message and you are reading so fast that nobody can even understand exactly what will happen. They will find you and you will be an insult. How can you be a presidential spokesman you want to read the words of the president and you don't even know how to speak? What about the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala we surely when we read them, we must recite them clearly every word must come out from the correct place. We must try and
learn that insha Allah and take your time and you must know the Hadith says that those with the Quran in their hearts will be told on the day of the AMA what worked up till the Torah to feed dunya read recite and continue going up your status is elevated for as long as you can recite in the same way that you used to recite in the dunya.
So those who used to rush they won't be able to read because how we read in tarawih and in Salah that is exactly that is the only way we will be able to read in the afra that's the only way because that is that is the recitation in the dunya so it is very important. We need to really relax when we see her father in our massage. We must tell him listen, half is up. Please read very correctly Don't worry about the time we can finish. Whatever time it's actually a five or 10 minute delay that's what it is. We can finish any time we want Allah to be pleased with you and with us. We want our Salah to be accepted and we want all to be together inshallah in gender. Imagine on the day of the
AMA of Allah subhanho wa Taala brings us all together and says you know what? All of you I was happy with you going to Agenda together it's possible for Allah to do that. May Allah be pleased with all of us. So we need to think of this whenever we are reading the Quran whenever we are engaged in Salah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us there are various other sutras in this Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed all of them are full of meaning. But the aim and purpose of this particular session after the taraweeh was just to pick up snippets a few verses of encouragement for all of us to be better Muslims insha Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring us closer to the Quran.
The last two sutras are extremely important they are known as Alma we that and those two sutras which have protection in them. When we recite them, Allah protects us against shavon against the one who is jealous and so on. It is important that we read the verses we read their meanings and we read them morning and evening. So Allah subhanho wa Taala can protect us from shaitaan and Allah subhanho wa Taala can protect us from the jealous elements the jealous people and so on and Allah can safeguard us and our families may Allah protect us all Alhamdulillah with this we have completed the verses of the Quran. inshallah tomorrow, we will speak about or we will conclude inshallah with a
note on the entire month, together with what we should be doing for Eden sha Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us all and grant us forgiveness on this evil sallallahu wasallam ah Baraka la Vina Mohammed subhana wa hamlins, panic alarm ob Hamdi Ganesha to Allah Allah
