la cama Rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah Alhamdulillah. He was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was happy. I mean, my brothers and sisters, I wish to highlight two of the verses that were read this evening from Surah talma. EDA, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. In one of them, Allah is reminding us that if you are not going to fulfill the instructions that Allah has placed on your shoulders, then Allah is not going to lose anything, he will simply replace you with someone else. Look at the masjid tonight, it is full. Those who didn't come, they are the ones who lost out. If I was one of those who didn't come, the Salah was going to continue, everything was

00:00:49--> 00:01:31

going to continue who would have lost out myself. So if I don't pray, it's not like Allah is going to lose something. It's me who loses. If I don't give charity, it's not like money is going to be short. Someone else will give Allah will use another if I am not going to do the right thing. It's not like there is going to be a shortage of people doing the right thing. Allah has his plan, he will use someone else. So this applies in everything. If you are not going to do the good, Allah will take that work from someone else. In fact, if you are in a position of responsibility, and people are coming to you for work, you need to thank Allah because if it was not for them to come to

00:01:31--> 00:01:41

you, perhaps Allah would take the same work from someone else. Yeah, you hadn't Lavina Malou me Oh,

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

come on.

00:01:44--> 00:02:32

Dini. fussa wolfire team will be co you him boom. Are you him Boehner, beautiful verse of the Quran, oh you who believe if you are going to turn away, if you are not going to fulfill the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah will replace you with someone he will bring forth, a another group of people whom he will love, and they will love him, and they will fulfill that struggle in his cause. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. So this is the first verse that I intended to speak about. Then there is another verse that I want to talk about, which was in the last of the record that we have fulfilled so far, where Allah says, one of the reasons why a certain

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

nation were cursed was because when they did bad things, they did not stop each other from doing bad, they did not remind each other to stop doing evil. So when you see evil when you see bad, the minimum is yes, we feel it in our hearts to start with, then we pray for the people, then we try to reach out to them by reminding them my brother, this is not the right thing. That's the minimum duty that you have my sister, this is not a good thing what you did Subhan Allah, if you don't do that, the whole nation becomes cursed because what happens? The level and the standard of morals and values and fulfillment of responsibilities becomes no everyone is doing wrong and nobody is saying

00:03:17--> 00:03:28

you guys are wrong. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the curse upon those people learning and levena cafo Moo Bunny is SMA

00:03:31--> 00:03:44

seven EMA Wm those who are disbelievers from among bunu Isa him were cursed by the tongue of the wood Ebony of the wood and as of no Miriam, the end the curse was connected to one thing can only

00:03:48--> 00:04:30

follow. So Allah says they they tend away in transgression and they used to go beyond the limits of Allah Valley Kadima. Awesome, what can we add to Dune and on top of that Allah says they did not use to prohibits each other from evil. They never used to remind each other not to do the wrong things. Now, I want to end off by telling you Yes, it's our duty, my brothers and sisters, to remind each other to do good brother fulfill your Salah Brother, you give you a sucker Brother, you do this brother, this is your duty unto Allah. Yes, that's our duty. We know. What about when someone is doing bad? Is it not our duty to remind them to stop them to try and tell them that's what Allah is

00:04:30--> 00:04:41

telling us if we don't do that we will all be from among the losers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in every way. akula Kali hada sallallahu wasallam ala nabina Muhammad
