Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy here to mine.

00:00:12--> 00:01:05

My beloved brothers and sisters. This evening we read a verse right at the beginning of the tarawih which is probably the essence of our entire existence. Allah subhanho wa Taala says right at the beginning of Surah 12 milk and loving Hala Khan Mota one hi attorney Abu Welcome to San Juan Mala. It is he who created death and life in order to test you. So what is the test? Who has better deeds? That's what Allah says, or you can ascend or Hamelin, who from amongst you has better deeds. So it is never about quantity, it is always about quality. The only time that quantity has a significance is when Allah has made it compulsory.

00:01:07--> 00:01:55

For example, my five daily prayers has to be five, the way it is fulfilled has to be in a certain way. But beyond that, everything is about quality and never about quantity. So this is why the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tells us highroller family, according to one of the narrations, the best of deeds, what do you think the best deeds are? Ma de ma alayhi wa you will call that which is done regularly, even if it is a little, because man's body is such that it is more complex than any computer system. If you were to regularize it and train it to do something will lie IE it will not let you down by the help of Allah. If you train your body to get up at the time of fudger I

00:01:55--> 00:02:15

swear by the one who raised the skies without pillars, two minutes before the alarm you I will open you won't need that alarm, you will be awake because you train yourself. And this is why when you train yourself for a period of time to do something, you will achieve it be it quitting a sin or fulfilling a duty or doing something good.

00:02:16--> 00:02:26

If a person has a bad habit, and many people have bad habits, we are human after all. What you need to realize is if you can can continue

00:02:27--> 00:02:34

to protect yourself from that bad habit. A day will come when Subhanallah you won't even think about it.

00:02:35--> 00:03:13

Because 40 days have passed. You didn't touch the cigarette, right? Four months have passed. You didn't touch the secret. I'm giving you a simple example. I see some of the brothers smirking at me like we're going to touch on as soon as we get out of here. May Allah grant us protection but you know what I mean? any bad habit. And there are so many bad habits more and more that are coming into play today. Just a waste of time is a bad habit. Did you know The prophets Allah Salam says and it's a narration we should constantly think about near mahtani Mark Boone v mark a theorem in a nurse. There are two qualities, two things two gifts of Allah that many people are deceived about, they

00:03:13--> 00:03:51

don't take it seriously. They take it for granted. What are those two, or say hetal will follow your good health and your spare time. A day will come when you won't have the time anymore, and the day may come when you're not as healthy as you were. So pray and fulfill your Salah while you're healthy so you can make your Roku you can make your sujood and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us. Enjoy the prayer. Enjoy the Salah. here Allah is saying quality over quantity right? When you come for Salah my brothers and sisters, do we need it? Or does Allah need it? Just ask yourself that question.

00:03:52--> 00:04:40

Do you know why Allah makes certain things compulsory? Have you ever thought about it? Why is it that Salah is compulsory? Why is it that zeca a certain percentage is compulsory. Why is it that Hajj for those who are able and capable is compulsory. Why is fasting compulsory? Have you thought about it? It is replied to in the Hadith could see where Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us there is nothing more beloved to me than what I have made compulsory. Subhan Allah if Allah made something a compulsory duty on you and I it means he loves that thing. So please enjoy it. Please enjoy it. It's your your Lord, the owner of your sustenance, the owner of cure. The owner of mercy, the owner of

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

everything the owner of the asherah, the owner of everything in existence of Angela, you walk into this beautiful Masjid Do you know what it's called? Masjid Sirocco Jana. When they first named it I thought to myself, it's a bit of a long name. But then when I started thinking of its meaning I said it is indeed a path way to Jana is through

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

The Masjid

00:05:02--> 00:05:29

a pathway to Geneva is through the masjid what is set up? It is a path of what of Jannah you want Jenna find yourself in the masjid is in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers, my sisters, we need to realize Salah is a gift for us Allah doesn't need it but Allah loves it. So he wants to see Do you really love him? Him Who gave you the life him who gave you your identity and lovey fala paka fossa?

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

fee

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

Masha

00:05:37--> 00:06:27

Allah kaduk amazing versus declaring the greatness of Allah He created you he fashioned you, he made you He gave you He gave you your identity. So what that means he actually gave you that identity you have biometrics and whatever else it may be. Did you know no two people have the same fingerprint ever. From the beginning. Adam alayhis salam to the last one in existence. Not only that I've learned of something else. No two people have the same Iris print. From the beginning to the end. Not only that, if you were to shave your head, this is something funny. If you were to shave your head, there is a little design upon which your hairs grow. No two people have the same. Just like no

00:06:27--> 00:06:39

giraffe, no leopard, no Cheetah, no zebra has the same design or Mark from the beginning to the end. Hi. Hello, cola. Rooney cola

00:06:41--> 00:07:00

dooney. This is the creation of Allah. Show me what the others have created. That's what Allah is saying. What have we made? We've given every creature its unique identity. Allahu Akbar. That is my Rob. I'm going to go back to him. It's not just coincidence.

00:07:01--> 00:07:16

The love I'm supposed to have in my heart for that maker. He loves me so much that He gives me Ramadan. Ramadan is a gift of Allah Salah is a gift of Allah, a Banda is a gift of Allah, Allah once it for you

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

to attain genital Fidel's to achieve attain forgiveness. Do you know what Allah says in the Quran?

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

Allah who you read or IE

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

why you read

00:07:32--> 00:07:32

it

00:07:33--> 00:07:57

to me know my Elena Lima. Allah's intention is to forgive you, Allah once to forgive you. That's what Allah says in the Quran. But those who follow their lusts and desires want to be or want to turn completely want to turn you Who is that shaitaan shaitaan wants to turn you away. So what does Allah say? Allah says, If shapen had trapped you for 70 years,

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

and you uttered one word

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

of repentance, Allah wipes out the 70 years.

00:08:07--> 00:08:53

And Allah's mercy doesn't stop there. Allah says if you did 70 years of ibadah, and you uttered one word of evil, we will not wipe out the 70 years of a bad we will wait. Did you ever know my brothers and sisters? The prophets are seldom tells us when a person sins, the angels are told to hold the pen for a moment. Perhaps he might repent, perhaps she might repent. Did you know that your sin is not written instantly? But your good deed is written instantly. Your good deed is written with your intention. The Hadith of the prophets of Salaam whoever intends to do good man Hammurabi, Hassan 18, follow me of Allah, whoever plans or intends to do a good deed but did not end up doing it. Could he

00:08:53--> 00:09:25

Butler who has Santa it will be written for him as a good deed. That's the mercy of Allah. I plan to give you a million bucks I didn't. Are you gonna write the million in your account? Never we are human beings. We're going to say you're going to give it to me or you're in trouble. Right? with Allah. Allah says you planned to do something good. You never managed to do it for some valid reason. No problem. We wrote it for you. Luck. But then guess what? The same. Allah is telling us through the blessing lips of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that when you plan to do bad,

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

it's not yet written.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

Angels are holy.

00:09:30--> 00:09:36

When you plan to do bad and you don't do it, a good deed is written for you. Did you know that

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

one youngster when he heard me say that? He said I'm gonna plan a lot of bad things. I said, No, no, no, no, because the Hadith says when you plan a good thing, you are rewarded by the plan. When you execute the good thing. It's multiplied 10 times 70 times 700 times based on your intention and several other factors. Allah multiplies it. But when you plan a bad deed and you don't do it, it's written

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Good Deed because you didn't do it for the sake of Allah. What's stopping you from Xena?

00:10:06--> 00:10:13

If it is the fear of Allah and the consciousness of Allah. Surely that is called taqwa,

00:10:14--> 00:10:44

Raja Lune. That who Emerton that woman Sabine wa Jamal facula. In a careful law, one of the VIPs on the Day of Judgment is a man who was called by the opposite sex or a woman. It's correct for both sides, who was called by the opposite sex to commit the sin of adultery, and everything was facilitated, and they were good looking people on both sides. And it was so so doable. But they just said, I fear Allah and walked away. Allah says, You're a VIP Day of Judgment come

00:10:45--> 00:11:28

Subhan Allah, so someone who planned a sin, who almost committed it, but held back Allah says, You know what, why did you hold back for me? I will reward you for that. Something big. My brothers and sisters stay away from sin. For the sake of Allah, anyone can do it. Anyone can do anything. Possibility it's possible but for a moment, no chance May Allah forgive us, may Allah strengthen us. That's why we need to make the DA powerful to Allah hum mcqueeney behala leka anharmonic was nini before delete common see work? Continue making that Do you know what it means? Oh Allah grant me sufficiency in halaal. So that I don't commit haram

00:11:29--> 00:11:50

make me happy with what you've given me in terms of holid so that I never inclined towards that which is wrong. And Allah make me independent through your virtue in terms of sustenance, so that I don't depend on anybody else. You don't have to go around begging people. You don't have to go around being a slave of someone just because they gave you 100 bucks.

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

What has Allah given you?

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

Your entire existence is given to you by Allah, let's become a slave of Allah.

00:12:01--> 00:12:43

So Allah gives us a gift gift from avant, take it as a gift, your Salah you fulfilled today. Don't ever be in a rush. One thing that impresses me a lot. Those of you who are my age, perhaps a bit older, you might have realized over the years that the quality of tarawih is improving. Have you noticed this? The quality of recitation is becoming better, it's becoming a little bit slower, and it's becoming clearer and the How far are reading more correct and more melodious? Well, llahi, it's something I've learned and noticed, and one of the reasons why I simply cannot rush it, because I want to tell you the truth. It's good to read.

00:12:44--> 00:13:09

Bearing in mind the old people behind you, that is a fact. But that doesn't mean you compromise the word of Allah. You don't. The reason I say it is there is a hadith we talk of the day of piano. And we spoke about it this evening. We mentioned it a little bit earlier, where the prophets are seldom says you call Julio sahibi or Ani it will be said to a person who is holding within him the Quran.

00:13:10--> 00:13:34

Now, the Lama generally speak of a half is that a half it will be said to him, but when you look at the meanings of that Hadith, it's anyone who's memorized any portion of the Quran, and I'm sure all of us here have memorized a lot of Fatiha all of us here have memorized some form of surah. So inshallah it will be the case with all of us. You can only sahibi on a person of the Quran will be told on the Day of Judgment, read,

00:13:35--> 00:13:41

worth it, and keep climbing, keep ascending, read and ascend, ascend to work level

00:13:42--> 00:13:49

working till recite in a beautiful melodious way. Karma contadora dunya

00:13:50--> 00:14:23

how you used to read in the dunya? That's how you read today. Let's see. So you won't be able to read in another way. If you were rushing from pillar to post and huffing and puffing? What embarrassment will that be in front of Allah? Allah says, read how you used to read in the dunya what till contadora dunya. Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, don't ever worry about what people are going to say Subhan Allah, because it's about what Allah has to say.

00:14:25--> 00:14:53

Read in a beautiful way, my brothers and my sisters, when you're alone at home, take your time to make a melody out of your recitation for Allah. It's not important to rush and finish as much as it is important to read correctly and then finish. You find the point. If you have past Ramadan, and you read as best as you could and you struggled a little bit and you were a bit slow and you didn't manage to complete the item no problem you can finish it before or after no problem

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

if you have Mashallah, it's a bonus.

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

That's why the Hadith

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Where the professor seldom says Alma hero bill Cohen, the one who is a pro at the Quran or he has a very high level

00:15:09--> 00:15:14

must suffer till Kira mille Bharara, you know, he has a very high level with those who are tough.

00:15:15--> 00:15:28

But as for the one who reads the Quran, and he's slow and he stammers, and he stops and he goes back stammer is actually the wrong word. Because normally when you read the Quran, even if you have a stutter, or on your own stutter,

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

ask those who have a little stuttering illness. May Allah grant us all cure. Come and read Surah Fatiha for us they will never start in that surah Why? It's the key to everything. Al Fatiha the opening, it opens up everything. May Allah grant us goodness. So that person who's struggling with the recitation of the Quran, what happens Lahu agilon he has a double reward why want to reward for the Quran is reading and due for the struggle and the effort that he's putting. It's a great thing Subhan Allah.

00:16:01--> 00:16:34

So these are the gifts of Allah consider them a gift when we fulfill Salah. Let's ask ourselves, Do I really look at this Salah as a true gift of Allah, I come I make my will do as a pleasure with a smile and I call Allah Akbar Allah is the Greatest and I'm starting my salah and I'm taking my time and I go into sujood instead of Subhana Allah thrice, I'll just say two more times because I just love Allah, it's the quality not the quantity Subhana Allah, the quality of my Salah

00:16:36--> 00:17:02

inshallah, we promise that we will improve on our Salah, and even our Zakah when we give, give with a lot of sincerity respecting the people you are going to give. You know why? Well law he the Hadith says the prophecies of the end of time that a time will come when they will be nobody that you can give your cat to the way cryptocurrency is going, I can see that coming.

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

I don't think that impressed you.

00:17:08--> 00:17:22

But to be honest with you, yes, I'm not promoting or demoting. I'm telling you people are becoming so wealthy. You can't believe it again. Some of them say, Gee, I can't wait for that day. You know, I can't wait for it when you see that present, relax. It's not such a good sign.

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

Because imagine you go with you as a cat to someone thinking and he says

00:17:27--> 00:18:03

I'm probably worth more than human. Then what then what? It's an insult. Sometimes they are wealthy from amongst us. You don't know you just sitting the uncle is sitting quietly in one corner the way he dresses and so on. You may not tell because some people are humble. Some people are stingy to me, Allah grant us is one day there was a man who walked into the masjid the process. Allah knew he was wealthy. He had tatty clothing. The process Adam says What do you have in terms of wealth? He says oh, I've got poultry. I've got quite a few a bit of livestock and so on. He said livestock so the process ellipses go back and dress properly with proper clothing because Leah hora asagna mattala

00:18:03--> 00:18:19

Holic let the gift of Allah that Allah bestowed upon you be a parent, the minute someone sees your clothing they must know Allah bless this man. What's the problem? Today the youngsters say that uncle's arrogant why because chick at the clothes he's wearing, look at the perfume it is not arrogance.

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

arrogance is when you despise people, it's not when you're wearing nice stuff. When you driving the latest vehicle that's not arrogance, you can't do that. It's not a problem. It's not a problem. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us humbleness and humility. So this is something that I thought I'd start with, speak about the gift of Allah in a bada and the fact that we are on earth in order for Allah to test the quality of our deeds more than anything else, whether it's recitation of Quran Yasaka, whatever else it may be, give give, you know, one thing that impresses me about zakka

00:18:54--> 00:19:09

the Hadeeth could see that Allah Almighty tells us and Vic, Adama inficon. Laika Oh son of Adam, spend, I will spend on you. Give, then I will give you

00:19:10--> 00:19:24

it's difficult because you know what, these are my last few as it is. The price is going up. The Rand is going down. This is happening, excuses. Those are excuses. You give and watch what Allah does. unfit the Abner Adama own.

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

Complete guarantee the Quran has verses in it. Omar Toka demo

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

fujikura

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

de la

00:19:40--> 00:19:52

jolla, we read the first tonight. Allah says whatever you have given in the course of Allah, you will find it with Allah it will be better and multiplied completely. Allah will give you

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

then my beloved brothers and my dear sisters, we need to realize that

00:20:00--> 00:20:26

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam best of creation most noble of all messengers. He came to us he was chosen by Allah. He knew he was a newbie of Allah, a prophet of Allah. Guess what they did to him. They started calling him names. They didn't want to listen to the message. They belied, they denied. with arrogance, deep down, they knew he was truthful, he was honest. They belied.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

Guess what Allah says,

00:20:30--> 00:20:30

ma

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

taburiente, Matthew bkv imagine

00:20:37--> 00:21:09

they are calling you mad, you are not mad. There's nothing wrong with you, the gift of Allah upon you, you are not at all meant to in any way. Now, if you sit and analyze that you will realize that they had asked the messengers Allah seldom do you think they will not harass you and die for being steadfast on the deen of Allah. Look today across the globe, what's happening to the Muslim mean, simply because they are Muslim in they say la ilaha. In the law, they have good qualities. So by habits, they have high morals and values. And that's it

00:21:10--> 00:21:36

being driven out of their homes being fought against so much happening such that when we mentioned names of places, by default, we will leave out a few not because we want to because the list is too long. So we have to say Oh Allah help our brothers and sisters everywhere, wherever they are, you know better than us where they are. That's what we say in the DA. But expect to be persecuted in the name of Allah.

00:21:37--> 00:21:55

Expect to be tested in your Eman at some point, because when your Eman is strong, you will be tested. Something will happen to try and create a barrier between you and Allah don't allow it don't allow it. We go towards Allah. That's why Allah says also another verse we read tonight.

00:21:56--> 00:22:00

First be Rana Jaco Luna, Joe

00:22:01--> 00:22:47

jameelah their patients regarding what they are saying all that they are saying negative about you and against you, they will continue it's a sign of success. Allah says, oh, Joe home. Hi, john jameelah. Stay away from them. Ignore them in a beautiful way. You see, sometimes you have a problem with someone, but you become bitter. When you become better. You are not beautiful about it. Be beautiful about your difference. What is beautiful, say I have a difference with the brother. I am come, I still greet I'm still okay. I know the problem. Or if I don't greet and I want to stay away. I may do so without saying much negative things because I know one day they may be peace between us.

00:22:47--> 00:23:29

It's going to be too embarrassing on that day for us to come back. I must leave a window open a little bit. And you know what? I need to realize the hearts are in the hands of Allah. My daughter might marry his son. Then what? Then what? Subhan Allah some of you might say no way no child you don't know what may happen. I know of someone who murdered someone. two generations down the one grandchild or great grandchild married the other Subhana Allah through story. May Allah forgive us. Grant has goodness. So anything can happen. Allah is telling rasulillah salam patients don't worry, you know, when someone calls you a name? Are you that person? No, you're not. So they're talking

00:23:29--> 00:23:40

about themselves or someone else. Leave it, don't let it bother you. And be happy about it. Your life is in whose hands it's in the hands of Allah, that in their hands on my hands. So keep going.

00:23:42--> 00:24:05

And remember something Allah Almighty is watching. And Allah Almighty sees what is going on. When someone saw you, it was written for you against them. The minute you swore back, it was one one, this is not a football match. Subhana Allah, there's one one why he called me an idiot I called him an idiot, and that someone might use a verse of the Quran to say, just

00:24:07--> 00:24:07

say

00:24:10--> 00:24:16

the recompense of an evil deed is an evil deed just like it if someone slaps you, technically you're allowed to snap them back.

00:24:18--> 00:24:52

But the reality is a true Mothman Allah says from an alpha or a Jew Allah he want to reward you want the status with Allah just forgiving, let go carry on walking, the circle needs to close. Madden you clap, clap your back, you clap them, clap your back, you clap them. It needs to stop somewhere. Someone somehow needs to say okay, okay, Pescara, it's enough, right? It's gonna carry on forever make peace. I know of problems that have happened that have continued through generations at times. That's also a true example. Don't leave it too long. It's okay. Make this.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

So these verses that we read in taraweeh It is important for us to go

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

through some of the meanings or to sit in a lesson of Tafseer to understand what is being said because they are very, very powerful. If you take a look at the story of numerology Salaam we read this evening will lie he there is a powerful point made mention of we all want money, we all want sustenance, we all are, perhaps, to a certain extent struggling due to what has happened to the economies and so on. Do you know that your repentance will sort out your financial problems? Did you know that? Where did we learn it from the professor salah and the Quran, starting with the story of no hallahan salaam, called to start with Europe back home in

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

your scene is

00:25:47--> 00:25:47

a movie

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

of any wire.

00:25:55--> 00:26:10

He says I told my people seek the forgiveness of Allah, repent to Allah, He will open the skies with beneficial rain after forgiving you and He will grant you wealth and he will grant you children and he will grant you success in this dunya before the archaea.

00:26:11--> 00:26:39

So if you want wealth, you've got to make peace with the owner of wealth. Imagine someone calls you and tells you listen, I got a business deal here. It's gonna last five years and every month I need so many million of stock from you. What will you do? That man is suddenly a VIP in your life because you know what? If anything happens to him, my business is gonna go down when Corona struck before making your home for yourself and your wife, you make him laugh for that block.

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

Allah protect us because you know, the door will close.

00:26:46--> 00:27:01

Who is the owner of entire sustenance? Is it not Allah? Allah says you knocking the wrong door. You're knocking the wrong door. Knock the right door. Don't worry. Yo mon laka

00:27:04--> 00:27:47

a day will always be for you and another day against you a profit and the loss good and bad. It has to happen in your life. Take it in your stride. You making money. A day will come when you're not gonna make money. Allah has to test you with minus as well go to the mathematics exam. They can't test you plus, plus plus all the time, multiply multiply, they must test you division. They must test you subtraction and then you must you must also learn minus numbers. If I say 100 minus 1000 you got to know minus 900 What happened? That's a test Allah test you in the same way you got you got Mashallah you got when you got you need to know what you're doing with it. Don't waste Don't be

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

extravagant. Take away your gold bars for Allah by giving sadaqa

00:27:53--> 00:28:31

give sadaqa when you gave us other car, it was yours. You know, common logic. Say I have 1000 grants. I gave a charity 1000 sorry, from 1000 I gave 100 or 200. Right? That's 20% that My name is written on it. I gave it what I kept 800 it's not yet My name is not yet within on the complete circle, only on the first half of the circle. I earned it. I haven't yet spent it when you spend it the circle is closed. arrive on the day of kiama this man received this man spent How did you get how did you give I succeeded, right? But if I've only received and not spent it's half a circle

00:28:32--> 00:28:46

the other half. If I were to die, it's not a minor. It's now someone else's name. And a lot of the times the more we leave the bigger the wall between those we've left behind

00:28:47--> 00:29:05

so it's nothing grand to leave something huge for everyone sort them out if you want in their lives and it's not wrong to leave behind things. Look at sad if not be workers for the Allah when he was ill. He was ill he got killed but when he was sick, he says all messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

It seems like I'm not gonna make it.

00:29:09--> 00:29:15

And I have a lot of wealth. Well, are you ready to knee in a minute and Lee? I only have one daughter

00:29:16--> 00:29:33

of Allah Azza Sadako be Molly, can I not give my wealth all of it to charity? Because I only have one daughter. What is she going to do with all of this? The process Adam says no. He says well then Kanter giveaway two thirds he says no. Well then can't give away half he says no.

00:29:34--> 00:29:43

So can't give away a third. So the prophets of Salaam says sudo with sudo. Kathy, you can give away a third and the third is enough. Then he says

00:29:45--> 00:29:56

if you have wealth, it's better to give it to your folks. Your own water your own heirs instead of them begging from people after you're gone. Yet you are a wealthy person, but it's very hard for people to give.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

You know I was reading a hadith where

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

The process allowance is one of the things that will benefit you after your death is a good child of yours who will make to offer your mother Fira, for your forgiveness. And then I learned something very interesting. And I always say this in your life, some of your children are closer to you than others. May Allah bless us with children and good children. Some are closer than others. Some of our children, we have a difference with them, maybe because of the choice of a spouse, maybe because of some misunderstanding, whatever it was, sometimes we've had people come to us, you know what, I need to block my child from getting inheritance. What's the plan? There's no plan. What do you mean

00:30:35--> 00:31:12

there's no plan there has to be this child is like this Like this, like, you know what, when you die, that might be the child who realizes and he might be the only one who will be making to offer you 20 years down the line from now. The others will be enjoying the money you gave him. It's possible. That's why be fair, nevermind, he might not have liked you in the dunya you might not have gotten along. What if Allah says give, give it Don't worry. You never know. So my beloved brothers and sisters, look at these verses of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, we could go on and on and on with the with this just as soon as we read this evening, beautiful Allah speaks about

00:31:12--> 00:31:36

Yeah, you help Muslim men. What benefit we have just from those words, are you who is enveloped in government's number one is the gift of Allah upon Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the fact that he achieved Nobu. The fact that Allah chose him the fact that Allah chose his wife because remember, the first person that he went down to from that, from that, from that cave, was his beloved wife, Khadija, Binti Hawaii.

00:31:38--> 00:32:20

And he, he actually wanted her to comfort him. And he said to her, what happened she believed straight away. First person that many of us, we come with a story home, the wife says, I'm doubting this guy here. I don't know what you're saying. SubhanAllah look at the relationship. You know what she said? Allah will never let you down color. Allah healer, your physique Allahu Abaddon, it's possible for Allah to let you down. You're a good man. How many of us, our spouses can say a quarter of that word. You're a good man, you fulfill the rights of people. You look after the orphans and the widows and the neighbors and the relatives, you help the poor, you assist the needy, you help in

00:32:20--> 00:32:32

good causes. You are truthful, you're honest. Those are qualities Subhanallah, who our beloved Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam May Allah grant us his companionship in the archaea.

00:32:33--> 00:32:46

So Allah says, Yeah, you and Muslim milou come in llena. Allah is telling him to stand at night in prayer, but he was a person who already knew he was going to gentlemen, do we know we're going to gender we just hoping

00:32:47--> 00:32:53

to you stand at night in prayer, sometimes, once a month, once a month. To recap of tahajjud.

00:32:55--> 00:33:09

Try it. Just tell yourself in your heart today, once a month, I'm going to get up to record I'm going to do and I'll build it from there. And if you can't do the two units, I tell you what you can do. Get up at that time and make dua start off that way.

00:33:10--> 00:33:43

Your life will change. Your life will change. You become a better person you realize sin has no place for us. You know if you want to stop sinning, people ask how can I stop I'm addicted to pornography, I'm addicted to drugs, I'm addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to whatever whatever. One of the first things you do you seek forgiveness of Allah just become regular with your Salah. That is a starting point. Salah is the primary pillar of the deal. You uphold it automatically in salata, tanha and in fact,

00:33:44--> 00:34:22

he will come every Friday we hear that right? In the Salah, Tottenham, he will Mancha don't we hear it every Friday in the hotbar it means Salah itself will stop you from immorality and wrong evil sin. Salah itself will stop you you know what you may do? Do you read fudger you're waiting for what sinner you're gonna commit in between. You may do the whole you waiting for us. What's in you're going to commit in between you made you're actually waiting for Maghreb, you made your mark review Asia, after Isha, you're going to be Subhana Allah, and you will become strong with that. So start off with your Salah, push yourself, force yourself. I started this talk by speaking about the honor

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

of having Salah as a gift. And I'm ending it by saying make sure that you push yourself at the beginning. A day will come in a short span of time and you won't need to push yourself you know why? You will just enjoy it. It will be nature. Look at the older peoples they will sit and tell you when I was young. Perhaps I wasn't so regular. But as I grew older, you know what you realize where am I going to go? We are going to the mercy of Allah we have hope. We have made a lot of ibadah and we have sought a lot of forgiveness. But remember when you die, the condition upon which you died is very, very important. So always ask him

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

For a good condition Allah him in a Luca horsnell ha tema, Oh Allah grant us good ending in a way that we have Shahada on our tongues. Brothers and sisters a few more hours left for the month of Ramadan. Allah might give us a gift of having a 30th date that too is a gift. Don't ever be upset when the moon is not cited. See people cry sometimes, but I was planning I heard one lady say but I made all my orders and I did all that is going to get stale. Look, you know what? That's not my fault. It's Allah giving you one more day it's a gift, gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Rama and forgiveness. Remember the one who has fasted correctly and

00:35:43--> 00:36:04

Don't write rubbish on day because on the day of the AMA, you're going to own book will be given to you Allah subhanho wa Taala will say, here's your book aycock kita back, read your book
