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

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:05--> 00:00:46

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad Ali Al amin Nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy as you may know, but All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless him and to bless all his companions and to bless every single one of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness, honor the rule Amma beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for having granted us the acceptance firstly to witness the month of Ramadan. Secondly, the ability to fast Thirdly, the ability to stand

00:00:46--> 00:01:34

in Salatu tarawih. And fourthly, the patience that Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us in this month, in that many of us have work the following morning very early, but in the season, we are ready to sacrifice in the evenings May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the reward of that sacrifice and at the same time, the last few nights of the month of Ramadan, definitely much more spirituality. Definitely far greater levels within ourselves. And we should be understanding that the last 10 nights are full of freedom from the fire of jahannam as explained in a narration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it's very important that we seek forgiveness of Allah

00:01:34--> 00:02:07

subhanho wa Taala. And we asked him to free us from the fire. This evening, we ended surah Yaseen, I'm sure most of us would be knowing that surah if not off by heart, almost by heart. And I'd like to hope that most of us know the meanings of the verses of surah Yaseen as well. And for that reason, inshallah I'll only be going through maybe two or three points from that particular surah. The idea is to move on to Surah Azhar fat which is the next surah in Surah. Seen there is the story of the men.

00:02:08--> 00:02:15

The men, who is known as original, I'm sure at the end of the opening verses we started with tonight's

00:02:17--> 00:02:58

episode in Medina T. Raja know he has a man came from the inner part of the city calling what was his call? He said, Oh my people, why don't you follow these messengers who are not asking anything material of you. And I remember making mentioned yesterday that it's important for us to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave this man Jenna as a result of him, encouraging others to follow the messenger. What this means is whenever we encourage others to follow the correct path, Allah subhanho wa Taala will safeguard us and our offspring, and inshallah he will grant us Jen as well. As a result.

00:02:59--> 00:03:42

The Baraka of calling others towards goodness is by the will of Allah, He will protect you from evil, and he will grant you similar goodness. And if through the call of a person, someone else follows that which is correct, the caller receives the full reward of all the others who have taken heed because of that call. And this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has the highest rank. One of the reasons is his oma has the largest number. Another reason is all the goodness that every single one of us has, comes from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And definitely he will receive a full reward for every Salah that we read, for every bit of Zakah we give for every

00:03:42--> 00:04:25

Hajj we go for, for every fast that we maintain, and so on. In fact, if you are to pause for a moment, if we had, really, and I need to say this, if you close your eyes for a moment and think when you say Alhamdulillah hear of Bilal, I mean, you receive 10 rewards for every letter, we've already lost counts. Not only you the one who taught you also received 10 rewards for every letter, not only you read, but everyone that that person taught read, and every one that that person taught, if any, any one of them have taught someone else, then the reward goes back to generations. And not only back to generations, but anyone who taught the one who taught you will also have the full

00:04:25--> 00:04:43

reward, the moment you uttered that and not only that, the chain goes all the way back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when every single one of us sit with a little Koran, and we only say Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, I mean, if our reward was in electricity, there would be a huge explosion on Earth.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

Because it's really it is something that would make us tremble if we are to think of what must be going on how Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps a record of everything, my reward, the rewards of all my stats and everyone who taught them and so on. Right up to

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah, this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has asked us, he says to you, I wish to be the nubby who has the largest number of followers. Naturally when people follow him he receives a reward automatically. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala makers, true followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so this man was granted Jenna and he says, when it was told to him enter Jenna just because of your call. Allah yeah later komiya lamona Bhima de de he says oh I wish and I hope that my people knew upon what my Allah has forgiven me what was the point that Allah forgave me upon Subhana Allah wa Jalla Nina no Grameen and look at

00:05:49--> 00:06:28

what Allah has made me honored for. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to use us to serve the cause. In surah, Yaseen Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the blowing of the trumpet, the last day he makes mention of the day of piano, that day, when the hands shall speak, the eyes shall speak, the ears shall speak and so on. And he makes mention of gender, and the people of gender and a little bit of what they will have, and he makes mention of Hellfire, and also Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the creation, he created the kettle and he also speaks about the how he created myself and yourself and how it is easier for him to resurrect, when someone creates from nothing.

00:06:29--> 00:07:10

Obviously, that is something meaning that that is the power of the Creator. But when then later on, they are decomposed pieces of that particular person's body, it's easier to now recreate. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding it's like an example, obviously, of a much lower level but to bring it closer to our minds. When we recycle paper. The process is easier than when you manufacturing the paper at the beginning. So Allah says, Don't people have brains that if we made them from nothing, then to resurrect them is a minor job? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding? That is Surah Yaseen in Salatu sofort. Allah subhanho wa Taala has made

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

mention of many aspects of creation as well, commencing with the stars, he says in the

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

dunya be Xena teeny little kawakita. one

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

a shot upon him

00:07:29--> 00:08:17

married, he makes mention of why he created the stars. Two reasons mentioned here there is a third reason that he mentioned elsewhere. The first is to beautify the canopy over you to beautify it. Imagine if it was just dark at night. Allah says we beautified it for you to enjoy for you to study for you to look at for you to really take your time and consider how powerful Allah is. Then Allah says, also we use the stars to pelt the devils that try to cross the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala in trying to go up to the heavens where they are not permitted to go. That is why when we see a star that we say a falling star in the Sharia, that star is pelting, a devil we say La hawla wala

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

quwata illa billahi la Li Na VI

00:08:20--> 00:08:59

and one of the third reasons Allah subhanho wa Taala says we have created the stars as guiding factors for you by night when you are traveling. You have the stars nowadays Mashallah we have a Garmin but wait until that thing doesn't operate wait until you go to a road when you come to Zimbabwe Masha Allah they will be roads where that thing doesn't take you you need to know at night if this is the star, I'm going to go in that direction it's taking me north, Masha Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala goodness. Another way of doing it is sleep until the morning, Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us this is knowledge knowledge. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all

00:08:59--> 00:09:25

sorts of knowledge and benefit us from the knowledge that he has granted us. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the stories of the messengers, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says we send to all them the people we sent to all the nation's Warner's when they were arrogant by denying our message. Look at what we did to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

either key la la, la la la, in llama Western.

00:09:36--> 00:09:58

They were destroyed. Why? Because when they used to be told La ilaha illa Allah when they used to be given the message of La ilaha illa Allah they became arrogant if you recall, arrogance in the Sharia refers to two things rejecting the truth and despising people. So Allah says they rejected the truth. Because of that arrogance. Allah says

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

If I can keep it to the moon very clean, look at how the ending of those who are warned has been. Look at how we have destroyed them completely. And Allah Subhana Allah says

00:10:12--> 00:10:26

Allah Kadena Donna No. felony Mooji, Boone new had a salon called out to us, and we are the best of those who answer the call. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those also who call out to Him.

00:10:27--> 00:11:06

But these messages, they struggled, they strived, they were tested, with many tests, many tests Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam test. And Allah says he tested him such that the test is called the Great test, the clear test when Allah says when he instructed Ibrahim to slaughter his own son, Abraham May peace be upon him. And unless is when he was about to fulfill that command. Nah, Dana, who we called out to him. Yeah, he

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

further south dakota Oh,

00:11:11--> 00:11:22

oh, Ibrahim, you have fulfilled what we have asked you to fulfill what you saw in your dream, the instruction of ours, you fulfilled it. And Allah says, in

00:11:23--> 00:11:44

law who will Bella mean? That was indeed the clear cut test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He passed his test. Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. And Allah says after that, about all the messengers he speaks about and after their sacrifices, and after Allah says, We chose them, Allah says, What are our

00:11:46--> 00:12:35

teeny we kept a good memory for him. And this Allah says, For all the messages, we kept a good memory and a good name for him in those who came after him. The same applies to Musa alayhis salam Harun alayhis salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala says their reputation was intact as the generations past Mashallah, they remembered them all the time with goodness, can I give you the goodness? Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we raised your status every time they mention you, your status is raised. They mentioned your name in an intact manner. When we say Mohammed, what do we say? sallallahu alayhi wasallam? May Allah peace and blessings be upon him.

00:12:35--> 00:12:57

When we say the name of any other messenger, it is an insult. It is blasphemous, to intentionally omit the words may peace be upon him, whether we say Jesus, we are not allowed to say that word alone the name alone to us, if you omit the term May peace be upon him intentionally. We consider it blasphemy.

00:12:59--> 00:13:42

May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and Allah says, as a result of us sending peace upon the messengers in that way, allows peace is showered upon us tenfold. So this is why whenever you say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah peace and blessings be upon him. Allah says And may Allah May my peace and blessings be upon you 10 times more than that Subhana Allah itself is an act of worship, because if we are not going to respect the messenger who brings or who brought the message to us, we will not learn anything. The same applies when instead a teacher has taught you something and educator has taught you something, never forget it. always respect your teachers. Otherwise,

00:13:42--> 00:14:15

there will be no use of what you've learned nothing at all. It will be to your detriment, then to your benefit. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to respect those who've taught us at least we pray for them, we make dua for them. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us good use of the knowledge that we have learned through them. So these are the tests Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We tested them one after the other. And Allah says Yunus Allah is Salatu was Salam. He was in the whale. I'm sure we all know that he was in the whale. Jonah was in the whale May peace be upon him.

00:14:18--> 00:14:29

Allah says listen to the verse. He had a quality in him, had it not been for that quality, he would have stayed in the way of whatever. What was the quality? Allah says? Allah Allah.

00:14:31--> 00:14:38

Can Amina Musab bein Allah Allah be happy Bocconi. niomi Oba

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

had he not been from amongst those who constantly declared our praise and engaged in our test be, he would have stayed in the way up to the Day of Resurrection. Amazing look at how Allah waited. This means that what helped him was the fact that he constantly declared the praise of Allah Praise be to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Subhana Allah

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

Do

00:15:01--> 00:15:40

we need to be from amongst those who praise Allah to Allah? Allah Allah He, he yeah if Kofi she'd get close to Allah, praise Him, remember him at times of ease. At times of difficulty, he will remember you, lo Akbar. When Allah says cover your hair, you find some people and we are we are dressing the women folk. Some of them decide, no, I can't do that, then when we need because because we find a scorpion has better smell or protect us. We need to help you say Allah kiyomi Allah says, but when I called out to you to cover your hair, then what happened? Now you need me, isn't it still through His mercy He grants us cure Subhan Allah, Allah, we owe it to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:40--> 00:15:54

Really, even if we remain Institute and I've said this many times in the past, our whole lives, it's not enough to thank Allah for what he has granted us. But Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability, the ability to be thankful.

00:15:55--> 00:16:32

And this is why it's important for us to answer the call of Allah. When we answer the call of Allah, when we raise our hands, we become VIPs. Allah listens immediately because he knows this person whenever I've called, they've surrendered immediately. Now when they call what will happen? These are the friends of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And this is why Allah says, No, hello, a Salam called out to us. We answered the call this one called out we answered this one called out we answered, because we tested every one of them, and we found that they were from amongst those who are patient, let's move to suit of sod, a powerful surah Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the

00:16:32--> 00:17:18

kuffaar of Quraysh that this belief is at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they knew that his message was very powerful, and they couldn't attack the message, they had to attack his person, sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they knew that they could, and this is something that happens up to today, when they know the message is flawless. They've got to attack the messenger. Today, they trying to burn that message, not realizing that you will never ever be able to get rid of the message. Let me inform you of something. Every single time the kuffaar and the disbelievers have tried to harm Islam. Islam has benefited more than 100% from what they try to do.

00:17:18--> 00:17:41

If they try to extinguish the Koran by burning it, it will result in a million plus people reverting to Islam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, if anyone wants to engage in negativity against the Quran, it is Allah who will protect it. He says it loud in the Quran. In

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

have

00:17:50--> 00:18:39

we revealed this and we will protect it ourselves. Allah says this, what did he do to the Kaaba? When the man from Yemen known as Abra wanted to come up with the elephants Allah destroyed him through little small little swallows that threw pebbles from a very high altitude destroying the elephants, the same Allah The owner of the Quran, Allahu Akbar. It's his word. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows why what is happening is happening. Whenever they have tried anything. Take a look at the cartoons. When the cartoons came up. What happened more people were conscient eyes about Islam across the globe. The largest number of people ever to shift to Islam to revert to Islam. In known

00:18:39--> 00:19:04

history was after September 11. In the United States of America, what happened? That's the word of Allah. Every time they want to extinguish Allah subhanho wa Taala his word Allah refuses Uri donelly Oh, Kofi oh no Rama ebf why so many verses in the Quran? Allah says they want to extinguish the Nur of Allah.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

Allah Oh,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

man, oh,

00:19:16--> 00:19:57

Allah refuses except to complete that nor of his, whether the kuffaar like it or not. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us that understanding. So we don't need to respond negatively, respond positively on the day that they want to burn the Koran. Each one of us should pick it up and start reading it. Those who have not memorized it. Let's undertake to memorize it on that day. That's how we will protect it. Those who have who are memorizing it, may Allah make it easy for you don't give up. Those who do not know how to read it start learning how to read it. Those who have never looked at the meanings of the Quran, look into the meaning. These are opportunities given by Allah subhanho

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

wa Taala the kuffaar their business

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

is to try and extinguish the Quran. What is our business? They are doing what they are supposed to be doing? Are we doing what we are supposed to be doing? That's the question. We sometimes get bogged down to try and attack those who might be attacking the poor and not realizing that we are guilty of ignoring the book itself. We as muslimeen are probably even worse off if we are using the Quran just as a show in the mental peace at home. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can undertake to learn the message of the Quran. That is what we need and to put it into practice. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors. I spent a few moments on this because it is a current

00:20:39--> 00:21:17

matter. It is a current issue and we need to learn something by demonstrating and by burning this and effigies of what and what we won't achieve anything we need to understand. Allah says we need to do something positive. Lee Dini Illa Hoon Yahoo me I'm sure we've heard that this Dean has a god it has an Allah who will look after it who will protect it. We need to ask ourselves are we part of the deen? If we are we will be protected within the deen May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. So Allah subhanho wa Taala there in sort of sod makes mention of the allegations against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they told him, Sir,

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

this man is a liar. This man is a magician. He's a liar. He's this he's that desperate, so many rumors and they began to say so many things about him. Their job was to spread the rumor Allah says O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as they are spreading your rumor we will grant you more and more power elevation. Same applies to every one of us. Whenever people are bad mouthing us or people are spreading rumors. That is the time you will feel your spirituality go up. What's the reason and has an old bursary explains it Rahim Allah in a beautiful manner. He says the reason is day and night without you knowing your linen is being washed day and night without you knowing your sins are

00:22:02--> 00:22:43

being washed by others talking about you so have Allah so when your Linden is being watched as you sleep, you're enjoying the snoring and allows raising your status there are others awake whether it's a third party very sadly This is what's happening. The star moments are turned by the shouting into a gossip moments. Sometimes we have for Salah in the masjid, right outside the masjid, we've got a gossiping corner where we gossip. Sometimes we go and visit people it's a gossiping visit. We are washing the linen of others for what? And Allah says not only will they wash your sins away, but their good deeds. You get up after having snowed and Mashallah you've already given 500,000 Rand

00:22:43--> 00:22:54

Zakat without ever owning anything how, by people gossiping about you spreading rumors about you. This is the level of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they spread the West about him.

00:22:55--> 00:23:32

That's why it's important for us never ever to engage in that which does not concern us. Never, ever engage in it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding it's described also in these verses, that when we come on the day of piano, each one of us will have to tackle our own issues. Allah is not going to ask us what happened to the man next door? No, not at all. Even if you died together. Allah is not going to ask you hang on. You used to talk about him. Tell us a little bit more what happened there never ever not ever met Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding and really May he opened our doors for us. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard all

00:23:32--> 00:24:01

these rumors about him, the people used to come to him and tell him Allah subhanho wa Taala exposed the kuffar by telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at what they're saying about you behind your back, then they come to you and they pretend like they know you and they're related to you and so on. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, is Allah Maya coluna their patients regarding what they are seeing what will help you to their patients regarding what they are saying, what

00:24:05--> 00:24:05

in

00:24:09--> 00:24:32

and remember our worshiper Dawood, whom we are granted a lot of power, he was oft returning to Allah, the term a word, but the name a word that is a beautiful name. It is one who constantly returns to Allah, both in repentance, and both in deeds constantly comes back to the straight path. Now Allah subhanahu wa Jalla grant us that quality.

00:24:33--> 00:24:57

So Allah says, look at the wood, we tested him as well. Look at Sulaiman, we tested him as well. They were patient. So Allah makes mention of one of the tests of the wood, and Allah says, How did we test the wood? Let me mention it in a nutshell. They were two people who came to doubt Allah is salatu salam. And one says in a fee This is my brother in law who is what his own and

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

he has 99

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

sheep, one Leanna Giotto, Hayden, and I have one sheep only for Karla rockfill. Neha was an evil hippo. So he wants the one sheep. He says, Look, you've only got one. I've got 99 you give it to me. You give it to me and his speech, he is claiming the one sheep as well and his speech is far more solid than mine. So Tao la salatu wa sallam immediately responded, and says lacava Maccabees, Elina jotika illa de adji Indeed, he has oppressed you by asking you to give him the one in order to join it with his 99 solely because he's got all 99 and he immediately doubt Allah His Salah made this far. Why did he make he still far he asked Allah forgiveness Allah forgive me, y'all. I've done

00:25:49--> 00:26:29

something wrong, what was wrong? Obviously it's wrong for someone to ask for 1% when when they own 99% and this 1% here and they say no, now Give it to me. I need it and I want it and I'm buying you out by force. It's wrong. So doubt Allah, He Salam responded to say it's wrong, but immediately, he fell prostrate, and he asked us forgiveness. That's why we fell prostrate this evening, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us and grant us the ability to repent in a manner that doubt Allah is lm repentant, what was his repentance about? He didn't hear the other side of the story. And he passed a judgment. It was so clear, so apparent, he didn't hear the other side of the story. And he

00:26:29--> 00:27:06

passed the judgment. He says, Yeah, this is wrong. I didn't even give the other man a chance to add to what he has to say how many of us are guilty of passing judgment without knowing the other side of the story? Allahu Akbar here that would lie salams test was this and he immediately sought forgiveness and he fell prostrate. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We granted him so much so much, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala says when the old alayhis salam used to make this be, Allahu Akbar, the mountains used to make this V and you could hear it he could hear it with him.

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

Yes, yeah. Jeeva Lu? Oui bien.

00:27:12--> 00:27:12

La.

00:27:15--> 00:27:49

Howdy, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to me about the gifts he gave out Ali Salim and Sulaiman Allah Salam. Allah says, window Danny Salah was Salam used to make Vicar then even the mountains used to join in the chorus and the birds used to join in Subhana Allah Imagine if you are saying Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah he and you hear the mountain saying the same thing and you hear the birds uttering the same thing. And you hear the other creatures of Allah telling the same thing. Well, Ah, that's a gift of Allah Subhana Allah look at what Allah gave them.

00:27:50--> 00:28:08

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We gave this to Tao David May peace be upon him, he was powerful. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then makes mention of the test of Suleiman Suleiman Allah in salat wa salam was granted even more than his own father. He was granted even more than his own father. And this is why

00:28:12--> 00:28:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted many children more than their parents. And a man would not like there is an Arabic saying that's not coming to my mind right now. But it's there. That's why I paused for a moment. A man does not like to see others exceed what he has achieved, besides his son, or his son's son,

00:28:36--> 00:29:19

besides his own son or his grandson, and that's why the Arabic saying ma azumino Ebony 11 an evening, that you will not find someone more loved to amend than his son, or you will not find more loved than a man's son to him than his grandson, which means the grandson of a person can become more beloved to the grandfather than the sun himself, the man in the middle. And this is why you find the old men sometimes they play with their grandchildren more than they played with their own children. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has mercy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Suleiman Allah is Allah more than his own father, that would be a solemn, what was the what was the secret?

00:29:20--> 00:29:27

What is the key to the treasure of Suleiman Allah salatu salam, when Allah subhanho wa Taala tested him.

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

Suleiman Alayhi Salam made a dua, he says, Have a beautiful knee, Allah forgive me, this is the key. The key is forgiveness, if we engage in is still far Allah will open every door for us. If we engage in Toba in repentance, Allah will open every door for us try it. The problem with us we think we haven't sinned. So why should we engage in Toba? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never ever sinned, but he used to engage in Toba more than 100 times a day. That's the key. That was the key so behind Allah, He is still a man. Allah has

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

Before he asked Allah anything, he made sure the slate was clean and he made sure he was on the same page if I can use today's language

00:30:10--> 00:30:49

A lot of us want to ask Allah but we haven't yet repented for the sins we are committing right now currently, Allah forgive us. So when you make a draft firstly you start in a beautiful manner and then you ask Allah for forgiveness before you ask what you want. Yeah Allah forgive me. I'm a criminal. I've committed so many sins yeah Allah, I repent. Correct repentance and yeah Allah, this is what I want. Now Allah says you have it straightaway. Because you are now beloved to ask Allah just call out to say I have forgiven you. This is the secret Let's all engage in is still farm Allah forgive us this evening. Allahumma inika foon to hit Bulava. Allah forgive us all.

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says Sulaiman says Allah He said, I'm Robin Feeny. virani quite happily

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

had him back in

00:31:05--> 00:31:13

Oh ALLAH forgive me, and grant me kingdom that nobody else after me will have Allah gave him

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

grant me kingdom that nobody after me will have Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him beyond his own imagination. What happened? Allah says we want to mention one one gift from his gifts that we gave him.

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

For as a foreigner safarnama re ha ggdb me.

00:31:41--> 00:32:30

We made the wind blow at his command wherever he wanted it to blow. Imagine today, if any one of us here had power over the slightest portion of the wind. Where do you think we would have arrived? Allahu Akbar. Suleiman alayhis salam part of the gift Allah gave him was the wind and Allah subhanho wa Taala says he could control it completely. He had the power given by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To do that, not only that, he could speak to all the animals, the creatures of Allah, he had control over Jin kind, all the different types of jinka that are in existence. He had control over them. And he could build because of that, remember how we mentioned the Palace of the Queen of Sheba which was

00:32:30--> 00:32:37

brought instantaneously that was to a man alayhi salatu salam, that is a dua and he says in

00:32:41--> 00:32:44

You are the giver. Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:32:46--> 00:32:48

Do you know how Allah describes shall a man

00:32:49--> 00:33:15

the most powerful descriptions of a newbie, obviously there are descriptions higher than that of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but here we are speaking of the others, Allah says, neatly elaborated on what a beautiful worshiper he is, what a good man, what a wonderful worshiper Suleiman is who is saying this, Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah makes mention of the same quality that his father had in who

00:33:17--> 00:33:48

he was returning. He used to return to us often in Toba and he used to come back to the path always whenever there was a little error or whenever there was a slight bit of a blunder, he immediately came back and sought forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention still have the story of a YouTube I won't go into the greatest of details, but I need to mention the story this evening. Because uh, you Bala is salatu salam was a newbie who was tested the most in his own way.

00:33:50--> 00:34:29

A handsome man given everything by Allah, he had good looks. He had very good skin. He had children, he had a beautiful wife. He had so many children, he had lots in terms of material wealth, one by one, everything went away. And shaytan used to come to him and tell him Look what you calling people to do. What Look what it's doing to you. You'd rather leave this call, just leave if people are cursing you. You're telling people to turn to Allah and to do this and to let them do what they want. Look at what's happening to you. No one deals with you. There's no business your business is gone. It's over. Your skin is gone. Your health is gone. Your your children are dying one by one,

00:34:29--> 00:34:44

they all died in the plagues. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says he'd never lost hope. Are you Valley salatu salam constantly made dua to Allah. And Allah says, We tested him up to a point and after that Allah says in

00:34:45--> 00:34:53

Mousavi era, we found him to be extremely patient full of Sabra after we tested him.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Imagine Allah is saying this, about a man that we tested him one after the other after the

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

We found him to be a man who's full of patience unless it's neat man Lambeth, what a beautiful worshipper of ours in

00:35:12--> 00:35:28

Allah says he was constantly turning towards us. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant that to us. Then Allah says, we decided to cure him to show him our power. Allah says we caused the spring to gush forth when his wife had gone somewhere.

00:35:29--> 00:36:10

And Allah says, he had to drink from it and apply, just like the well of Zamzam. We have Mashallah. And this proves that water would actually be able to cure you sometimes when we are sick, the doctors say lots of fluids, lots of liquids, flush it down, Allahu Akbar, this the water itself has a quality to cure. And this water was no ordinary h2o. It was something from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And Allah says, almost instantaneously, his skin returned to the days when he was young, similar to that. And Allah says, and his business returned, and we doubled up his children and when his wife had come back that day, she hardly recognized him.

00:36:11--> 00:36:28

And he says, No, it's me, you Allah has cured me Subhana Allah, you can imagine what must have happened that day, Mashallah, the happiness in the home that Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all happiness. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We chose them. What did we choose these prophets with? Allah says, in

00:36:30--> 00:36:37

Bihar, Lisa, we chose them with a certain quality, a certain point what was the quality record?

00:36:38--> 00:36:45

They used to constantly remember the era they were constantly mindful of life after death that is known as

00:36:46--> 00:37:28

they were constantly mindful, conscious of the life after death. Allah says, that is how we chose them. And this is why the same surah Allah speaks about the beliefs and how he believes refuse to Prostrate to Adam, then he believes himself says that I will not be able to lead astray those of your worshipers who are miraculous miraculous, the same word is used which means the chosen chosen to do what to be conscious of the Akira. Look at that. So if we want to stay or if we want shavon to stay away from us or to be unable to harm us, we need to be conscious of the life after death. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has consciousness of him at all times. And the next year Allah

00:37:28--> 00:37:52

subhanho wa Taala surah to Zuma inshallah, we will go through some of its details tomorrow, but Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the Quran and how powerful it is. how powerful the Quran is he Allah says, Allah Hoon has zella sanil hudy Allah has revealed the best speech, it's the speech of Allah, it can be nothing better than his kita

00:37:54--> 00:37:58

Tasha, that book, which has similar verses

00:37:59--> 00:38:49

kita bamu Tasha Bihar masani mahtani meaning that which is repeated often, there are verses repeated often and we repeat some verses often like Surah Fatiha repeated often as well. That Pasha, amin who julu, Latina, Shona boom, the skins of those who fear they are up, shiver when they hear the verses of Allah. That's a quality. Whenever we've heard a verse of Allah and our skin shivers. That's a sign we have Eman May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to us and Allah says the skins tighten the hairs raised as we know they stand. And Allah says thumb methylene blue julu mokulua boom Isla de la.

00:38:50--> 00:39:40

Then the skins soften up together with the softening of the heart towards the remembrance of Allah. So that is the effect of the Quran and its verses and its power. That what it does it softens up the heart and Allah says after that for a little karsiyaka kulu boom movie Karina destruction be upon the hard hearted who do not remember Allah, those who have hard hearts whose hearts do not soften up Allah says destruction upon them. Those who do not remember Allah subhanho wa Taala so these are some of the words describing the Quran in surah to Zoomer where the crowds are mentioned inshallah, tomorrow we'll speak about the groups of people and how they intergender and jahannam until we meet
