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

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:09

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala

00:00:10--> 00:00:53

nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa tourbillion aumentar Bian BSN in Isla de verdad. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to bless him and to bless all his companions and to bless every single one of us and our offspring to come up to the day of piano. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala shall His mercy and His blessings upon us all, and May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us all entry into paradise after forgiving our sins and our shortcomings I mean, on the drama beloved brothers, sisters, dearest listeners, this evening we completed the 26th part of the Quran. And in

00:00:53--> 00:01:17

this 26 part, there are several sutras commencing with certain tough named after the sand dunes or the sandy mountains and Allah subhanho wa Taala in this surah makes mention of how important it is for us to respond to the call whenever we are called in the direction of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:18--> 00:02:05

And in the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of a beautiful incident, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam found that there were very few people accepting the call. And I'm sure over the days we have heard about how even at the time of new holla is salatu salam, he was there for 950 years calling his people and a number of only 11 to 18 accepted the message in more than nine centuries. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us guidance and to make us realize how he has gifted us by guiding us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says there was a time when some of the jinn kind happened to listen to the Quran. They were passing by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

they happen to listen to the Quran. Listen to how Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in Surah Taha

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

what is the sort of

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

La Cana Ferrum in Elgin he asked me Oh

00:02:22--> 00:03:01

Do you remember the time when we when we turned a few of the gym towards you listening to the Quran? They happen to hear the words of the Quran, sallam, how about Oh, Allah Oh sweet, oh, when they heard this Quran being recited, they told one another, keep quiet. Listen attentively. alene sauce in the Arabic language means to listen and to try and understand, listening attentively. So these Jin, were completely taken aback by these powerful words of the Quran. Listen, let's try and understand this. Phelim Puglia Allah, Allah comi him

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

meeting, when the recitation was over, when it was up, they went back quickly to their people to their nation, warning them about what Allah says.

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

Yeah.

00:03:17--> 00:03:25

They said, Oh people owe our nation listen to what we have to say. In SME, Nikita

00:03:26--> 00:03:57

Gilani de Moosa, we have heard a powerful book which was revealed after the time of Moses May peace be upon him. We have heard a powerful book most of the Kalima buy in a day, which confirms the message of all the books, the heavenly books that have come before it. Imagine the jinn are confirming Yeah, the Elan has the book guides to the truth it guides to that which is correct one li acari

00:03:59--> 00:04:37

13 and it guides to a path that is upright, a path that has no bends in it a path that will lead you straight to Jenna. So these Jin kind told their own people to their own kind that this is what we have heard. Listen to the message. Yeah. Toma ijebu Daniela Oh our people or nation, answer the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala answer the caller who is calling and this call of Allah subhanho wa Taala turn towards it Make haste Subhana Allah

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

and they continue to say if you follow and you believe it will save you from a severe punishment We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant as Savior from the punishment. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the gift of Allah, one of the greatest gifts that Allah subhanho wa Taala could bestow on my

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Self yourselves is when he has granted us submission to him when he has made us from the submitters from the muslimeen from those who can adopt the heavenly message of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is the biggest gift today we are sitting as muslimeen Mashallah, if we think ponder over what we have, voila, here it is the greatest gift, the greatest gift that we have, and this is why a DA is made mention of in Surah Tula cough, where a person is encouraged to make this dua as they grow older, what is the dua or Bo journey? Khurana Metallica Lottie, Da Li, Li, Li, Li,

00:05:50--> 00:06:44

Li, ve, T, in the tuba to a cow in a minute, almost nimi in this two hour we should be reading every day several times. Or grant us the ability to be thankful to you for what you have bestowed upon us and for what you have bestowed upon our forefathers. And Oh Allah grant us the ability to do good. Grant has the ability to do good that will please you Yeah, Allah. So we are asking Allah to grant us the ability to be thankful and to grant us the ability to do good and we saying Oh Allah make my offspring good as well. I have indeed turned to you and I am from the submitters are the powerful too are we making dua for ourselves, thanking Allah, about what he gave our forefathers and asking

00:06:44--> 00:07:25

Allah give us the ability to be thankful give us the ability to do good deeds also make our children who come after us pure and good, what bits do I can they be and we are telling Allah we have submitted surrended so therefore grant is to us that is a powerful dua and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how such a person's rank is raised. Those who make this up, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to granted to us, the next surah is named after the best of creation Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by name in Surah will fetch but in this particular surah, he says, For alum

00:07:27--> 00:08:15

oola Isla de la, you should know that there is none worthy of worship, besides Allah, the creator, the one who has made absolutely everything. He is the only one that we will put our head on the ground for the only one we will run the acts of worship for whoever created me, that's who I worship. I do not risk the acts of worship by rendering them for anybody besides the one who made me. So as muslimeen, when we say Allahu Akbar, we are actually saying Allah is the Greatest who is Allah. Allah is the worshipped one whom we worship, because He created us and made absolutely everything. So that is who we render our acts of worship to May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

ability to understand this. Also in the opening verses of surah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of his name.

00:08:25--> 00:08:32

One levena Mano huami, Dasani hatchie man ob man was de la Allah, Mohammed.

00:08:35--> 00:09:17

Those who believed and do good deeds and believe in what was revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam They are the ones who are successful and so on. And in this particular surah Allah describes heaven. And Heaven has a description paradise we talking of Paradise, we have mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he speaks of the description of heaven fee harmala. At Walla Walla, Hopper, Allah Kelby Basha, we made mention of this a few nights ago in heaven is that which no AI has ever seen. So if your eyes have seen the most beautiful of stuff, or the most most beautiful of items in heaven is even better. While Odin and Samia no ear has ever

00:09:17--> 00:09:51

heard about that's divided into two categories, whatever beautiful sounds or voices you may have heard in heaven is better and whatever descriptions you may have heard in general is even better. While a hopper Allah will be Basha, and in heaven in general is better than that which has crossed through the hearts of people, nothing in heaven would have crossed through the wildest dreams and desires of any human being. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, imagine what must be in store for us. Now he gives us a glimpse into this and he says methylone

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

Taku. He gives the example of the paradise that is prepared for those who are coming

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Just have him he says he has an

00:10:06--> 00:10:28

inventory as in in it. There are rivers of pure water that has the same taste that pure taste of water, no difference in the taste and it will never be bad. Now one might say well we get water here the water of Jenna is absolutely different, totally different. The riverbed will not be the soil of the dunya

00:10:29--> 00:10:45

it will be whatever you want it to be so Hannah life you want your river to flow in the air it will be in the A Subhana Allah and you own it. You own the river. And Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to say, not only a river of water, one haram 11 kilometers

00:10:47--> 00:11:34

and rivers of pure MOOC MOOC that has a taste that will not change at all. Because someone might think, well if there's a river of milk, it will go bad after a few days. So Allah says no, it's taste will never change. It flows. pure milk imagine if you were to see a river or a lake of MOOC, then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to say, what unhappy, mean homerun lessini, Sharif, Eb Rufus of wine, various types of wine sweet for those who are to drink it. Why Allah says those who are to drink it. The Hadith says whoever drinks the alcoholic drinks in the dunya will not have a taste of it in heaven, meaning when they go into the IRA, presuming they are forgiven, and they head into

00:11:34--> 00:12:13

gender so one might say, but Allah says in the Quran in general, you can have anything you want. Allah will remove a certain code where you won't ever want it Subhana Allah, look at the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala you won't ever desire for it. You won't know that you missing out on anything but those who haven't drunk would want it and they would drink it and they would enjoy it so Pinilla in the Sahara. This is why we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us goodness. And this is how we join the two verses one verse which says fie hamata starhill unchoose enjoy general is that which you will desire you will get. And in another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

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

sallam says, if you have drunk alcohol in the dunya, you won't have it in Jenna. Not because you are going to want it and you won't be given it but you won't even you won't even get to having thought about one thing is because the code as I said moments ago will be removed. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to comprehend even a slight bit of his greatness. And Allah says, To end the most beautiful, what unhappy, mean as most of

00:12:44--> 00:13:27

and rivers of dripping honey, so how to love flowing honey that goes into the river. And as I said, the river bed is not the soil, it may be complete, it may be in the air. And Allah says, when you are in your palace, that pellets as you look down, you will see the rubber of your choice. This is only an example of what Allah has in store. But there are rumors of whatever you'd like you think about it, and it's there. And as you are thinking of the honey, you will be able to taste it. And as you are tasting it and you think of something else, the taste will change. Subhana Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding that the fact that we've mentioned this already means

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

that in general, there is better than this. The fact that we've succeeded to speak about it already in general, there is better than this. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, so now if you would like Jana, turn and start working towards it, why are we not working towards gender when we've heard the description and we all want to go there? Allah says, what are they waiting for? family? Oh,

00:13:56--> 00:14:01

are they waiting for the hour to come? Suddenly? Allah says, Father,

00:14:04--> 00:14:19

the signs have already appeared. This the signs of karma, let me inform you. One of the clearest signs of karma was the fact that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was sent as the final messenger. Why is that a sign of karma?

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

Because after every messenger, they waited for another messenger, the minute Allah subhanho wa Taala, sends a messenger and says, This is the final messenger it means after this, it's the end. So that itself was a sign of piano. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the ability to understand so many prophecies given by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam regarding what will happen towards the end of time, believe me, almost all of them have occurred, the minus signs have all occurred. We're waiting for the major science May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. And as I said, the trumpet shall be blown upon the west of creation, even if there is one human being

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

saying Allah Allah, the trumpet will not be blown. And for your information the Hadith says the trumpet has already been taken, and the breath has already been taken and what what they are waiting for the angel is waiting for just the instruction to blow. That's how close we are now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness, and may He save us from the Doom of that day. And Allah subhanho wa Taala after that makes mention of the Quran, because naturally he's telling us there is genuine there is paradise. We'd better attend before it's too late here qiyamah the all the signs are there. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala saying we've sent you this book, FLIR

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

kulu when

00:15:46--> 00:16:27

are they not going to try to understand the message of the Quran or its locks on their hearts? Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those who can read the Quran and try to understand the words of the Quran so powerful that the biggest enemies of Islam who tried to understand it have already turned to Islam, starting with the likes of Omar Malhotra, the Allahu anhu and the others. Take a look at the others who are not necessarily enemies but the moment they heard a few verses, they began to weep. Look at Najafi The neck is of a senior, he began to weep and he accepted the message immediately with us. SubhanAllah a question needs to be asked.

00:16:29--> 00:17:11

And that question is if one verse of the Quran could move people who were enemies of Islam, we are Muslims. Not one verse, not one surah but we read them after her come and we haven't yet been moved. Why? Because we haven't tried to understand the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala they understood one verse it was enough to move them to shake them up and to wake them up with us. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to understand the Koran and the message of the Quran which will naturally lead us to the sooner which will lead us to the books of jurisprudence and so on and to the law of the Sharia May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us true Muslims. So that is also a message

00:17:11--> 00:17:22

that we have here. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of surah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, giving us all a warning. What

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

is timberdoodle comin

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

yaku

00:17:33--> 00:17:47

if still you are going to turn away, we will eradicate you and replace you with others who will not be like you they will turn to us in worship us. So Allah is telling us he doesn't need us what law

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

Allah is independent, while

00:17:54--> 00:18:34

you are the ones who are in need of Allah for every single movement, and for every breath and every pulse. May Allah subhanahu wa Jalla grant us the understanding. So Allah is saying, if you are not going to turn, here's the message, it's loud and clear. Look at how the jinn came to turn look at how the others have turned if you are not going to turn we don't need you, we will replace you with others. And this is why when you find Subhan Allah in certain places, the masajid were built by people whose children if they do not flock the masjid, you find expatriates come and they completely pull up the masjid and what happens? You look and you think, but look this Masjid here, it's in our

00:18:34--> 00:18:45

area we are people they went away so Allah replace them with someone else. It's not like a mosquito is going to remain empty. That's the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grant us a deeper understanding.

00:18:46--> 00:19:27

And we have so many people entering the fold of Islam. Yes Mashallah. It's a good sign, but we should be worried. It's a good sign if we are steadfast but if we are not steadfast it may be just Allah subhanho wa Taala, replacing us with others who will then worship Him, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make a steadfast and the next surah is the surah of the victory alfetta powerful surah very brief history of this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to go to perform Amara And what happened is he prepared a group of his companions and they went without any arms without any weaponry and they decided to enter muckety muck Rama they were stopped outside and cutting a long

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

story short, they were prohibited, and it resulted in a treaty being written. Prior to the treaty. What happened is one of the companions who had gone in, there was rumor that he had been killed. And also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam knew that we don't have any weapons and we need to retaliate. If one of us is killed, then we need to seek revenge here. So he pledged with all those companions who were under the tree certain tree that we will go in and we will fight no matter what we will ensure that we will fulfill whatever you utter or missing yourself.

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala sent verses saying, I have become pleased with those who pledged that pledge. I am pleased with them.

00:20:10--> 00:20:33

Allahu Akbar, Lakota robinia lawani momineen even yoga yo Nakata shahdara for Anima. Happy ku beam. Allah says Allah has become pleased with those who pledged under the tree and Allah knew what was in their hearts. So he sent a mercy into their hearts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala send the mercy into our hearts as well.

00:20:34--> 00:21:13

And so they signed a treaty with the kuffaar after finding out that that was just a rumor. And that treaty, the Sahaba, the Allahu anhu were feeling very hurt as to why it was signed the way it was assigned. Initially, they felt Why didn't we put a little bit more in terms of clauses on our side? Because the kuffaar the disbelievers told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to remove Bismillah R Rahman Rahim then they told him remove Muhammad Rasulullah we don't believe you are a pseudo Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam removed that. Another thing is you desperately want to make Amara go back to LA Salam just nodded his head. Okay, right that right? This whatever they asked for. He

00:21:13--> 00:21:40

said, Okay, give it No problem. We'll come next year, and it's okay, fine. We will do this. We'll do that. And for so many years for 10 years, we'll have peace and he just continue to say okay, okay. And the treaty was agreed upon when they were leaving. The Allahu anhu was surprised. He says, Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What has happened here we signed this treaty, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses in Patna, Allah Kappa

00:21:41--> 00:22:17

babina. As they were leaving, we have indeed granted you a clear victory. O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba were surprised but we've just given into these people so much, and how can it be a clear victory Allah knows, in one or two years, everything will come right. And this, this particular treaty will result in the spread of Islam, and it will result in them returning. And this is why we learned even in our use of that sometimes that which appears negative, if it was not for it, we would never ever have got to where we are today.

00:22:18--> 00:22:54

Amazing. And this is why in the Quran in many places, Allah subhanho wa Taala says sometimes you dislike something but it's better for you. Sometimes you love something, but it works for you. Sometimes you might disagree with something but Allah knows that is what you had to go through Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. So that is the patch. And the lesson we learned from that is that in our lives, we need to understand we adopt the law of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether we like it or not, it will be good for us. Obviously we have to love it. But sometimes the situation right in front of us may seemingly be negative. It won't be in the long term, we will

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

achieve lots and lots of goodness. May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our doors for us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

has declared huge rules in Surah.

00:23:07--> 00:23:50

Al Jazeera named after the rooms, the rooms Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived in and Allah subhanho wa Taala is instructing the companions how to address the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Don't address him like you're talking to one another. respect him. When you talk to him, lower your voice. Don't start screaming his name from outside. That's very disrespectful. And when you talk to him do not address him as though you are addressing one another. If you do that your deeds will begin to perish without you even knowing that verse is in Surah jurats and Surah Surah Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs us how to live with one another. It is one of the most powerful

00:23:50--> 00:24:11

sutras. It is a whole charter charter. Today we have the Charter of the United Nations and so on. This is a charter of the mutual coexistence of Muslim mean, whether with Muslims and even with others, and that is suitable for Europe. We should go out and we should read it and we should understand it. It has so many instructions Allah says oh, you who believe in

00:24:13--> 00:24:22

compassion passito Bina Fattah obiano. To see buco movie Johanna, but to speak

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

to me.

00:24:28--> 00:25:00

When a person comes to you with news of a third party, which means they've come to you with either backbiting over gossip or they've come to you with a story that does not concern you. By coming with that story. They have already become sinful. And when a sinner comes to you with such story, you should make sure you verify it and authenticated before you allow it entry into your mind and your heart. Before you believe it make sure you verify if the Quran says why because if

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

Believe it, you may then attack men unknowingly and you will regret as to what you did to them. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to authenticate before we believe, but even higher than that, to disregard that which does not concern us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to do that. Then also in the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how important it is for us to understand we are brothers in Mino Nika indeed all believers are brothers we are all part of one family a bond. The Hadith says minoo knuckle just said the law head the true believers are like one body, one body either steca Minho, tada Allah who just said the mystery Well,

00:25:49--> 00:26:33

if a single organ of that body is restless, or is complaining of pain, the whole body will be restless. So Allah says, we as meaning are one body, if one small person is complaining of something, we should all feel that pain. And this is why it is important to be happy at the happiness of your brother, and to be sad that the loss of your brother we're saying brother, but we mean brother in Islam and sisters as well. are obviously all included. And the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warns us Latta Hari Shama totally. Fire hamdulillah vitalik don't ever be happy at the loss of your fellow Muslim because Allah might have mercy on him and test you with

00:26:33--> 00:26:59

the same test a few years down the line they laugh at you may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make that happen to us never, ever be happy. When someone is at loss. We need to feel the loss and we need to make dua to Allah help him even if we haven't got on with him, and even if he might not be in good books with us, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the pure heart. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, are you Hello Latina man who are you who believe LA is

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

comin as a kuno Hiram in whom none of you men should scoff at one another at other men, because those you whom you are scoffing, they might be better than you, then

00:27:17--> 00:27:57

it's risk and obviously even if you were to joke about them, that despising already lowers a person's level. And Allah says even though women folk do not scoff at one another, those whom you are scoffing at they may be better than you How do you know they may have deeds that that Allah knows. And this is why in Islam, we never judge a book by its cover. Never. You have people who might not appear to be physically good Muslims, but they might have one deed that Allah loves so much that on the day of Fiamma, we will find them in general before everybody else. It's possible, then we might have a person who appears to be extremely religious, but because they did not protect

00:27:57--> 00:28:09

their deeds, those deeds were given to someone else because of backbiting because of gossiping because of malice and jealousy and pride and so on. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect our hearts

00:28:10--> 00:28:28

and Allah subhanho wa Taala says also in these in these verses, yeah, are you hella Dina Manu Janie bucatini or Amina one. Oh, you who believe? Do not suspect one another stay away from that suspicion which is bad.

00:28:29--> 00:29:16

In about about one isn't that suspicion where you are doubting a fellow believer with no evidence is definitely a sin. It is sin, sinful to doubt one another for what? And Allah says Allah just says to don't ever spy. Don't ever spy on one another for what everyone has their own secret between them and Allah they know that they have repented. And they know how much water they are swimming in what makes us a god suddenly that we want to spy in the private life of this person and that person in Islam that is prohibited. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I have a ba, ba, ba ba don't backbite about one and other don't even talk behind their backs that which is the truth. That is the

00:29:16--> 00:29:44

meaning of backbiting. If we are lying, it is worse than backbiting. If you are to speak about someone behind their backs the truth which had they been present they wouldn't like it that is called backbiting by you uttering the words, you have already taken the sin on you if it is a sin, and if it is not a sin, you've given them a good deed from your records and place it onto their shoulders. You may have just lost your Salah and you're fast and you're Sokka and so on. May Allah protect myself and yourselves.

00:29:45--> 00:29:52

This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh people learn to understand one another. Learn to love one another. Yeah.

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

Oh people in kalapana comienza carry

Oh people we have created you from a single source from one male and female. And we have kept you thereafter in different groups and tribe, so that you can know one another. That is the reason why we are different colors, different sizes, different dialects, different places, different areas, not so that one can feel that they are higher than the other, but so that Allah has created this collection of difference. We can understand one another, we can relate to one another, we can recognize one another. If every one of us human beings looked alike.

00:30:40--> 00:31:23

Maybe we would need number plates on our foreheads. Because if we all looked exactly the same, what would happen? How would I recognize you from someone else? May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us understanding, look at the beauty of Allah. This is why some are tall, some are short, some are big, some are small, because Allah has created different inclinations in the different mindsets, because some people might be inclined towards a female who is tall and marry that one, and someone who is short and marry that one and someone who is big and marry that one and someone who is small and marry that one. So no matter what looks, Allah has given you thank him, someone somewhere in sha

00:31:23--> 00:31:46

Allah will have been attracted to it. And here I'm talking in terms of marriage. I'm talking here in terms of marriage, sometimes people look in the mirror and they say now I don't know what's gonna happen who's gonna marry me, you know, as it is, I'm this and that and I'm big and I'm small. No, these comments are in gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala never say that Allah will open your doors have mercy in meaning alone have mercy on us.

00:31:47--> 00:32:40

And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of many other aspects in this particular surah I'm not going to go through all of them. But let's move to the next Surah Surah Kahf a very powerful surah where Allah describes the creation of the heavens and Allah says, alpha IE, Bill Culkin. Do you think we got tired when we created the creation in the first place? Because people think Allah tired, Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah to Allah subhanahu morpc di em on Amazon I mean logo, we created the skies and the earth in six days, we did not get tired. The day anybody say that the creator gets tired, he has to just give the command B and it is Subhan Allah. So Allah says, ie bill

00:32:40--> 00:33:14

Hulk in our do they think that we have got tired by the initial creation. So now they are doubting that we are going to resurrect them well whom Vila mean hoping God, they are doubting that we will resurrect them, bring them forth once again. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding in these verses also Allah subhana wa Taala speaks about the control he has. He says, I created you, oh man, do you know that I am closer to you than you are to yourself? This is what Allah says. Allah, Allah upon Allah.

00:33:16--> 00:34:09

We are the ones who created men. Why not allow men to a switch to be enough so we know the whispers deep within that man, deep within the soul when the thought goes through you, Allah says we know that we know it. That's how close we are. And he continues to say, wanna know uporabo la min heaven unwearied we are closer to men than his own jugular vein. We are so close. Then Allah says Allah tala buccellati Ania Ania minihane Shem Allah carried. The two angels have received him one on the right one on the left. Marielle Pillowman Colin Illallah de rocky bonati anything he ever touches, he will find an angel taking a correct record of it ready to take the record immediately. So Allah

00:34:09--> 00:34:59

subhanho wa Taala is telling us Oh man, I don't think you're going to go very far. Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying when you utter words, then the angels have written it down. The only way that that will be erased completely is through repentance. When a person repents, even the book is wiped out. erased complete. The hygiene says at iba Amina Lambie, Carmela Bella, a person who has sought forgiveness from a sin is equivalent to the one who has never had a sin at all Allahu Akbar. Look at how beautifully that's worded. If we have repented from a sin, we become equivalent to those who've never ever sinned. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. What mercy what mercy Subhana

de PUE Shahe on the Day of Judgment, every person will be driven by one angel who will drive who will lead the way and another one standing as witness ready to bear witness against the person Subhana Allah, everyone will be taken into the courtroom of Allah subhanho wa Taala driven one, an angel leading the way and the other an angel ready to bear witness to say yes or no, this is what happened and that's what happened and I am a witness. And this is only one element of the witness. Allah says there are so many witnesses including your own body parts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness when we are forgiven, then remember, even the witnesses will forget completely

00:36:25--> 00:36:32

according to the generation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the same surah

00:36:33--> 00:36:37

yo Mana kolonie Jahan,

00:36:38--> 00:37:27

tala G, what aku helmy mezzi on the day when jahannam will be getting full of people, we will call out to jahannam asking a question Oh jahannam Are you full? Is there space? And Johanna will answer saying Are there any others bring them we can still put them in there is still space Allahu Akbar. Remember when people are roasted, let's not use the example of people let's use the example of something else. When you have a pot and you put in vegetable Mashallah it appears to be full, cook it after a while, it settles down at the bottom, this absolutely very little left, all the liquid is out everything is gone. And now it's all sitting at the bottom you can add more vegetables and wait

00:37:27--> 00:38:11

for a little more of a while. Imagine when human beings will be thrown into Johanna mela protect us into hellfire. Then what will happen is Johanna will appear to be full but it won't be so Alan knows that. But for people who might be getting excited thinking that now jahannam is full we're not going to go there. Allah says we will call out to confirm for them that there is more space for all those who need to go May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a turning point. Remember in the Quran whenever the Hellfire is mentioned Allah also speaks about heaven. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala in the following surah says in Alma, tacky nappy Jun 19 au s for those who are conscious of Allah, they

00:38:11--> 00:38:58

will be in gardens full of springs, gushing different types of springs and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of who they are.

Remember we made mention of the hour when Allah subhanho wa Taala calls out saying hello mean even to ballet? Is there anyone seeking forgiveness that I can forgive?

00:38:58--> 00:39:21

So Allah says those who say yes, we are the ones who are seeking forgiveness for them is this paradise Allah says we are in the springs will be gushing forth and so on. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says wafi amali him Has

So Allah speaks of two types of poor people Allah says there are two types of poor one those who come in big. Allah says there is a portion that the true believers give out to them as well. More or less there is up to the person. But there is a portion in the wealth of the true believers set aside for those who don't come with a begging bowl because those are the true needy. Allahu Akbar, the true needy of those who
