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

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:05--> 00:00:50

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the one who loves to forgive, we seek His forgiveness. Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was happy Hmm. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala he who loves to forgive, so we seek His forgiveness and we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household, his companions, may Allah bless them. May Allah bless all those who struggled and strove over the centuries in a way that they learned the deen. They practiced it, they taught it to their children and to others, and they passed the baton so that today we are seated

00:00:50--> 00:01:31

here, we need to pray for them, we may never know them. We need to seek that Allah bless them. May Allah bless us all. And we need to understand the responsibility on our shoulders to continue that so that one day generations down, people will be praying for us to May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us concerned and make him make us responsible. My brothers and sisters, the beautiful last 10 nights of this beautiful month of Ramadan. There is a message during its rounds, saying that I was the one who said that you need to read this so many times and you need to read that so many times and you need to make a Salah in each unit you need to read this surah and that's euro. That message is

00:01:31--> 00:01:47

totally fabricated. The only thing I can tell you is what our Sharia law told us that she asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what should I leave on the night of Laila to cuddle? And he said, say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah.

00:01:48--> 00:02:32

O Allah, you are most forgiving. You love to forgive, so forgive me. For me that is absolutely powerful. If Allah accepts it once, while I think about what it means, we are actually telling Allah Oh Allah, you love to forgive? What type of rope is this? It's amazing. Imagine we've all done wrong, haven't we? We are all weak. We say Oh Allah, you love to forgive. So forgive me. I am your slave. I am helpless. I am totally dependent on you. That is an awesome, powerful. Do not underestimate it. It doesn't mean you've got to repeat something a million times before Allah hears you. But it does mean you've got to be genuine and sincere in your call to Allah. May Allah subhanho

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

wa Taala forgive every one of us. We dive straight into surah Assad fat, the surah after surah Yaseen. It is Surah number 37 of the Quran in this surah there are so many stories of the prophets mentioned in a slight bit of detail, highlighting different aspects of these lives of the messengers. However, I want to draw my attention in yours to something beautiful about Ibrahim alayhis salam in this Surah Surah to suffer the story of how he went to sacrifice his son is made mention of in a little bit of greater detail than anywhere else in the Quran. And this is why in this beautiful surah Allah tells us how Ibrahim Alayhi Salam quality was such that it was absolutely

00:03:17--> 00:04:04

unique Allah to him as a friend, Allah subhanho wa Taala has to what is known as Sally and Sally lane. The first is Sally Lola Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. Helene is actually the highest level of friendship. It is called a hula, hula meaning the highest level of friends. So, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is a colleague of Allah Subhana Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for your information is also kalila. If you did not know May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a friendship with him. Allah make us from those who are close to him. I mean, so how did he become such a close friend of Allah by obeying Allah instruction immediately whether he understood it or did not

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

understand it? The fact that he knew it came from Allah, He blindly followed it. That was what made him the halleen of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he saw the dream, you know that immediately he told his son Oh, my son, I've seen a dream in me.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

Me, me, Barack

00:04:25--> 00:04:38

Obama Dada Oh my son. I have seen the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala via a dream that I was sacrificing you. What do you think I should do? The son says

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

certegy duni

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

Allahu mina swaby Oh, my father. Do as Allah has instructed you. You will find me to be from among the patient. Love luck.

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

instruction. Brothers and sisters, Allah has not instructed us to do something we don't understand. He instructs us to pray he instructs us to abstain from heroin from that which is harmful to us, but we still don't do it here is if Rahim Allah he said I'm given an instruction he never understood ever. He did not understand it, but he knew it was from Allah so he attempted to fulfill it sincerely for Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, verse number 104 sudo to suffer.

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

Wanna die in a

00:05:34--> 00:06:16

Dakota row in Ghana, Ghana, just in Sydney. And we call out to Him the moment he went to fulfill that dream. We said, Oh, Ibrahim, you have indeed fulfilled what you've been instructed via the dream. And indeed in this way we will recompense those who do good, which means doing good, was obeying the instruction of Allah. Allah tells you get up for Salah confession, my brothers and sisters that is not sacrificing your son. It is nothing compared to sacrificing yourself. And we still don't get up Subhanallah some people get up for school, in your mother and sleepaway before

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

Do you believe that?

00:06:20--> 00:06:24

May Allah forgive us? know Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us.

00:06:25--> 00:06:36

My brothers and sisters, look at what we learned. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, verse number 145, we have indeed become pleased with your Ibrahim.

00:06:38--> 00:07:11

Allah says we replaced that sacrifice with a ram from Jenna. And we will keep its memory forever and ever. And you will be remembered by those after you in goodness. That was a gift of Allah. We save ourselves from the Wrath of Allah by following the instruction of Allah. Allah says this is haram. This is halal consider haram haram and Holla Holla, you will be saved your body will be saved the food that is not permissible to consume don't consume it. It's not healthy for you. It's not good for you whether you know or not, whether science says yes or no. If Allah says no, it's a no.

00:07:12--> 00:07:51

So Allah and you need to be convinced that if Allah says something, I am definitely a woman. I believe that he made us he knows better than you and I, what is best for me and you Subhana Allah. This is Ibrahim alayhi salam, how did he achieve friendship of Allah? Do we want that friendship or a portion of it? Well, one of the ways of achieving it is to do that which will please Allah stay away from that which is prohibited. What a beautiful lesson we learned from this lovely story that we always hear. So I want to quickly repeat it. Ibrahim alayhi salam, every time Allah instructed him to do something, it was so difficult, even if it didn't make sense. I can give you one quick

00:07:51--> 00:08:14

example. When he was told to leave his children in Makkah in the desert and to proceed. He turned around and he started walking and his family says Where are you going? He continued because he didn't want to look back at them and feel sorry for them. He says if Allah has instructed me, then definitely I need to keep walking today. That macaque that was barren with only two people in it has been converted into the hub of the entire globe.

00:08:15--> 00:08:42

Every one of our hearts is stuck in muckety muck kurama. We would all love to be near the Kaaba right now. Subhan Allah. That is Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam, Allah will give you my brothers and sisters a good memory. When you passed away. People will say I had a great grandfather. He was a great man. You know he did this. Why not? Subhana Allah today we don't even know our grandfathers let alone great grandfather, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us great in his eyes.

00:08:44--> 00:09:22

Let's move on to the next beautiful Surah Surah Assad in superoxide. Also there are stories of certain prophets made mention of and beautiful examples. But the one I want to draw something we are all guilty of you and I know that sometimes you hear a story. And before you actually verify it, you've already believed it and you've already issued judgment, and you've already passed it on and the whole world already knows the wrong story. Don't we do that? It's a fact we all do it. I am guilty perhaps as well. Because Subhanallah we all require attention, myself included. It does not mean that because I'm talking to you I'm a saint. No, I'm talking to you. I need what I'm saying

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

more desperately than you may Allah subhanho wa Taala rectify me and forgive me and May Allah forgive all of us. So my brothers and sisters what is important for us to remind each other about is whenever a tale comes to you don't believe it? authenticated verified number one if it does not concern you throw it out. You've got enough in your memory you know today we lack concentration in Salah we lack concentration in so many good deeds. We feel lazy to do good deeds. Can I tell you why? Let's go back to your mobile phone. What phones Do you have Samsung, iPhone Huawei, if you want to call it that or who away when I went to China. They told me it's pronounced halfway. I said okay.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

Nobody

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

problem it's a Huawei whatever you have my brothers and sisters by the way that's a very very good phone so panel I've been using it for quite a while 128 gigabytes is just a standard memory. I don't know why I'm advertising for them but anyway, the point I want to raise is when you have a memory what happens you've taken a few photos, you've got a few videos, you've done a few things and the next best thing is the phone is full, it becomes slow it becomes sluggish. Why you just got it but the memory is full. Too many photos too many videos will llahi my brothers and sisters do you learn a lesson from that about your own system. We also have a brain we have a gigabyte capacity terabyte

00:10:37--> 00:11:03

capacity. You have a mind if you fill it with unnecessary pictures, a lot of memory is taken by photographs. A lot of your memory is consumed by images by videos by pornography by that which is haram too much is occupied so now when you try to activate and you quickly want to say a lot about your mind is sluggish by the time your system kicks in the mom is already saying As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah why

00:11:04--> 00:11:36

your phone Subhana Allah, your memory so we become sluggish take it out. That's why I say we need to clean ourselves save yourself by deleting that which is unnecessary from your system. How many of us have we started our phones and restored factory settings or got a chip external hard drive to say this, I don't need it right now. Shift all the photos into there so that my phone can work. So let's do it to ourselves take out format, go back to factory settings, it's Ramadan, you can return to factory settings by saying

00:11:39--> 00:11:39

to him

00:11:41--> 00:12:19

you will reset your system or the will of Allah Allah I promise you you get up fresh from Ramadan keep you therefore Salatin federal the first day of he Mashallah must eat his food why I have a new system. Soon as the bell rang. I was up before that, because I'm used to getting up so early. Allah helped you. But with us No, we start downloading unnecessary things. I have a grudge against that one hatred against this one and into pornography and into adultery. I can't wait to commit that sin. This is into gambling into drugs into my gangs, etc. Be careful. Let's improve ourselves. My brothers and sisters, we can do it. So let's go to this beautiful lesson. Like I said, we're talking

00:12:19--> 00:12:30

about saving ourselves. Verse number 24. So Roxanne, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us mention of a beautiful story of da wa Alayhi. Salam, I told you that wood was the father he was the dad. Right?

00:12:31--> 00:13:01

And in salatu salam, so people came to him with a dispute Allah makes mention of the details of this dispute. Allah says, costs money bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, there are two of us who are disputing between each other about what about sheep that we have? We have sheep. So the one man says, you know, that guy has 99 sheep, I only have one. And he still wants that one from me. And he has 99 so now that a salon looks at him and says, You know what, you shouldn't be doing this panel. Ah,

00:13:03--> 00:13:43

hang on. It doesn't mean that just because he has 99 and this guy has one that this guy is right. Perhaps that one also could belong to that person who has 99 making it 100 and this might not be his it could possible isn't it? It does not make it right and wrong, even though it's glaringly seeming, so, but that's not correct. So Allah Subhana Allah that Tao de la salatu wa sallam told him that you know what? La Vela? mcebisi arlena jotika. Ilana RJ, he passed the judgment without listening to the other side. He says, you know he's oppressed you How can he ask you for your one just because he's got 99. And he says this one is also yours. And then he said, a powerful statement, which is valid,

00:13:43--> 00:14:19

I'm going to divert in order to present it because we need to save ourselves. You know, when we have businesses, try and avoid partnership. You know why? It's not something that is encouraged. It is just a last resort. When you have partners, you need to have a big heart if you don't have a big heart. And if you're, if your heart is connected to us, that partnership is going to end in a very subtle way. Even if you are brothers. Remember that it has to happen if you are miserly and if you don't have a very big heart partnerships do not work. If you want to go into partnership with someone you need to love them enough to say okay, two discrepancies that shall occur because that is

00:14:19--> 00:14:35

the nature of partnerships. Remember this. Where do I get this from here that would Allah Salam says we're in Makati. Amina in sulaco Elijah berry back boom, Allah Beane in LA Vina man Oh,

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

man, I'm so sorry.

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

He says most of the partners they try to go beyond their limits with the partner. They actually transgress beyond the limits. They eat what is not theirs in the partnership, except those who believe and do good deeds and they

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

Very, very few of them. That was the statement of our nav Santa. What advice do we have Save yourselves. If you really need to go into a partnership, it is totally permissible. Remember that there is no prohibition. But you need to go in with the right people. You need to be honest, you need to have an honest partner, you need to learn to love each other. And as you grow older, break the partnership while you are still friends. Distribute while you are alive, your children will kill each other regarding your business, especially if it goes into the millions and the 10s and hundreds of millions. Remember this, go and watch anyone I know have very, very few exceptions in my life. Go

00:15:44--> 00:16:29

and watch anyone no matter who they are. After some time they start fighting like cats and dogs. Why? Because man has love for wealth, love for power. And this is what makes him fight so panela wells can actually destroy father and child relationship. Mother and daughter relation husband and wife relation people getting divorced. The husband wants to claim something that's not even his from the property of the wife or the ex wife wants to claim something that's not hers. It keeps on happening and it repeats itself make things clear, save yourself from calamity and disaster by making things absolutely clear when it comes to business. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us so

00:16:29--> 00:16:51

that was a slight diversion. The topic about partnership and how important it is to go into partnership if you really have to with the right people with a very big heart preparedness to say it's okay May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who learn a beautiful lesson. Many of us who are already in partnership must be thinking hey, how do I get out of Vietnam too late?

00:16:53--> 00:17:31

Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us all goodness and ease in Allah subhanho wa Taala favor us. Allah bless us all with beautiful sustenance. Remember my brothers and sisters, Allah gives us what is enough for us. We fight for more than that. That's what it is. If you are fighting it's beyond your basic necessity. Generally, the basic necessity Allah will cater for you. Don't worry, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and open our doors. Let's move on. So he passed judgment regarding this man. And immediately he realized that you know what, I was wrong. Obviously he's a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah makes mention of this in order to teach us a lesson What is it save

00:17:31--> 00:17:44

yourselves from accusing people or judging without listening to both parties thoroughly. If you're not prepared to give both parties an equal chance to present their cases and their evidence remain mum Keep quiet.

00:17:45--> 00:18:18

If you want to pass a judgement, listen to two sides, you will be surprised I have been called into arbitrations on many occasions whereby the person calling me into the arbitration was later discovered to be wrong, and they sometimes Tell me but you know, why did you do this? I was the one who called you in here. So when you called the wrong person, I was going to listen to both sides and pass a judgement It doesn't mean that you called me so you are right. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, but that's what we think that's my share. You know, my chef is supposed to like a lawyer supposed to fight my case. No, I shaved his different. Different not just you pay him and he fights

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

your case. No. He's supposed to be honest that you know what, listen, brother Mashallah. You are wrong. And this is what I suggest you do? And you are my brother. You know, I love you. I care for you. I respect you. And please try and listen to me Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us or May Allah help us resolve our disputes and problems in an amicable way. Sometimes some of the problems of the oma they take very long to resolve keep on making the art to Allah keep on trying keep on having hope. And be just It doesn't mean that you have to forego the justice. It doesn't mean that every time I just need to say it's okay, it's okay. You need to know if someone has usurped your right you

00:18:52--> 00:19:20

do have a right to tackle them. You do have a right to take it up and to ensure that you get that right May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and guide us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how as a result of this Sulaiman Salida de la salatu wa sallam, he fell prostrate for Allah, he sought his forgiveness and he knew that he was tested by Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter says, verse number 26 of the surah

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

in jalna, kakani

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

faco

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

cb t Wallah.

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

We have made you a vicegerent on Earth, we have made you a believer on the earth. So judge between the people with justice in a proper way, listening to both sides, do not follow your desires and whims because that will indeed lead you astray May Allah Subhana

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Muhammad Allah grant us all the ability to learn a lesson from this. Let's move on to Mashallah surah Zuma? What a beautiful surah It is named after the group's Zuma referring to little crowds of people. Why Zuma? Because Allah speaks of heaven and hell Jana and Johanna, and Allah says, the people will enter heaven in groups, groups of people, they will be going in with their leaders, they will be going in with their prophets, they will be going in in groups and etc. And when the people enter jahannam, they will also be going in groups with champions with their friends with whoever was there, you know, in the world, so halala those who might not know what that means it's a local term

00:20:38--> 00:21:10

here in South Africa referring to bosom buddies, right? Your friends, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us good friendship. So people will be entering into jahannam with their own friends with their own groups, the groups that they had perhaps in the dunya they used to do all the wrong together, they will also be clustered together. It's dangerous when you read about it in the Koran. It's actually here raising it makes you scared, you've got friends, just ask yourself which way are we heading? It won't be very difficult to actually figure it out. You know, if your friends you're always together thinking of good and doing good and trying to do good then a humbler you can imagine

00:21:10--> 00:21:46

the group entering into gentlemen together as a group thing it guys, as you used to say, let's go to the musty music, it's entered the door, that's our door and we all go in Mashallah. And if you guys used to go clubbing and pumping together, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, make a stir before it is too late. Save yourselves my brothers and sisters have good friends, good friends such that, you know, when you look at them, and you talk to them, you can show what's going to happen in the Hereafter, inshallah, and it's never too late, never ever too late because you're still alive. So panela we're going to come to that verse about being late before I actually get into these groups. And I want to

00:21:46--> 00:22:11

mention one point about the group. But I must tell you the verse that has in it, the greatest hope in the entire Quran, it is called Elijah I will pour on and carry the ayah that has the greatest hope in the Quran is verse number 53 of suatu Zuma, which is Surah. Number 39. Do you want to hear it? No verse in the Quran has expressed greater hope for us than this verse. Let's hear it.

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

Only arriba de la de la

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

la

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

mattina in La Jolla.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

Jamie, Jeremy in

00:22:29--> 00:22:56

me, say oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, oh my worshippers who have transgressed against themselves, never lose hope ever, ever, ever in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala for Indeed, Allah forgives every single sin, He will forgive every single sin for indeed he is most forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:22:57--> 00:23:37

Subhan Allah, what Mercy is this? Allah tells his most beloved, to talk to all of us and to tell us no matter what you've done, don't you dare lose hope Allahu Akbar. Allah talking to you don't lose hope. Don't think that Oh, now you know I've done too much. Is it okay for me or not? It is okay. Here's Allah if you lose hope you're insulting Allah because your maker told you never lose hope I know what you've done. I know where you've been. I know what you've been into. And I am telling you do not lose hope. Come back. I'm waiting for you. So Panama. The Hadith says when we seek the forgiveness of Allah, Allah becomes so happy with us yet he doesn't need us. Do you know why?

00:23:37--> 00:24:07

Because the devil promised Allah these people won't turn. And then the devil comes in make us think you are right. Have you been written off? You're not fit for the forgiveness of Allah. If we fall into that trap, we anger Allah. If we don't fall into the trap and we say Oh Allah, The devil is trying to make me lose hope. But I know that you are the Most Merciful because you told us in verse number 53, of surah number 39 in the Quran, that we should never lose hope I refuse to lose hope or Allah. You have mercy on me. Forgive me. I know I'm worth paradise.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

So

00:24:10--> 00:24:43

amazing. We are with paradise. Allah loves us. That's why when you hear something like this, don't you feel good? You know why you feel good? Because you have a man. That's why you believe in Allah, you have faith. You have the Shahada. That's why you are feeling good about it. When you say no, I know I've done bad I admit myself, but I am open. And I'm going to go there and I'm going to try please let's not fall in another trap of the devil. What is it? shaytan says, Did you hear that? I was most merciful. Did you hear? Keep on clubbing Don't worry. Keep on doing your thing. Don't worry about alcohol it's mine a few drops on the fact Allah

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

Subhana Allah you need to make sure that you don't fall into that trap because that's another extreme one hand shaytan wants to make you lose hope the other hand he wants to make you have too much of hope that you actually now think that you know it's we've all it's okay. That was okay. He's fine. I remember someone

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

Who was sending nude so hard Allah telling others that you know what, Allah doesn't judge me by my outer clothing. It's a fact that Allah doesn't judge you by your external being but when you're asking for trouble, then you judge yourself. We won't judge you. You judge yourself, you know what Allah wants of you Subhana Allah.

00:25:19--> 00:25:57

May Allah subhanahu wa taala strengthen us all. At the same time, we're all grappling and we're all trying to become better people to quit whatever weaknesses we have. Let's not be judgmental when we see people who have open weaknesses, try and help. Don't be derogatory because Allah might expose your hidden weakness, they might have an apparent weakness. So don't become judgmental and abusive. And don't look at people and start pointing fingers. No, we try to help each other. I tell you why we're all drowning. And we all need to save each other. Who those who've been saved by the will of Allah We will never regret but try to save other people while you're saving yourself. Aren't we

00:25:57--> 00:26:05

talking about saving ourselves, we're all drowning. Everywhere you go there is seem to be committed wholesale, free Subhanallah free.

00:26:06--> 00:26:24

In fact, it's not free. You've got to pay I'm just thinking about it. A lot of the sins you have to pay going to the clubs, you got to pay gambling, you got to pay alcohol, you got to pay drugs, you got to pay adultery, you got to pay what else you got to pay for absolutely everything but come to the machine free fast free Salah free dress properly free imagine so I was actually wrong. If you look at it that way.

00:26:26--> 00:26:49

To earn the mercy of Allah is free to get the punishment you got to pay but we still willingly pay I'll do it. I saved my money ago I do this May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and guide us. So there is another part of the verse The second part of the verse actually draws us back to reality where Allah says, Look, I told you not to lose hope didn't die. But I want to tell you, do we quickly.

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

Listen to what Allah says in verse number 54. That's an excellent one Ebo in Arabic como una

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

de como la mala.

00:27:03--> 00:27:38
