00:03:02--> 00:03:11

woman tambahan BSN in Isla de Nueva, my dear is mothers and sisters a very warm day this morning in Harare.

00:03:12--> 00:03:31

I think I haven't seen 35 degrees on my little thermometer in a long time, but we thank Allah subhanho to Allah for this beautiful heat. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us the coolness and the calming through rain that will be beneficial for us. And it will not that will not be destructive. I mean,

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

brothers and sisters beautiful versus Seurat father.

00:03:38--> 00:04:27

This is the surah that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just like he has revealed all other sources, but the message is different from Surah to Surah. These verses are so powerful, so beautiful, they show us how dependent we are on Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how independent Allah is not only of us, but of all his creatures, anything he has created, he does not need it at all. But with us, we are totally and absolutely dependent upon Allah subhanho wa Taala for every single aspect of existence. So Allah says yeah, yohannes Oh people,

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

oh mankind.

00:04:30--> 00:04:40

For the translation, I'm going to be using the sahi international that we've distributed in this session. It's page number 426 in that Sahih International without the Arabic

00:04:41--> 00:04:47

So it says oh mankind you are those in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala whilst Allah

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

is the free of need the Praiseworthy, so the free of need alleghany one who is absolutely independent, if you look at the term 14 and tune for karate

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

You are the fuqaha. So each one of us is a firm believer in Allah, which means we are in absolute need of Allah.

00:05:09--> 00:05:52

We are the ones who are in need of Allah, Allah does not need us, allies free of any need, and he is all praiseworthy. So whether you worship him or not, he is still full of praise. The negative we do does not affect Allah negatively the positive we do does not benefit Allah in any way it benefits us. Or if it was bad, it would hurt us, it would return to us not to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So whatever I do is for my benefit, whatever harm I would do would be to my detriment, may Allah protect us. So Allah is saying, oh, man, I don't need you, you are in need of me. From this, we learned that it's up to us to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the next verse, he says, if he

00:05:52--> 00:06:23

wounds he can do away with you and bring forth a new creation. Two things, if Allah wills, He can delete us, he can destroy us, he can replace us with others. And if you lose, he can replace mankind with another creation altogether. So if we are not going to worship Allah, it's not like Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to suffer a loss, but it's us who are going to suffer. My mothers or sisters life is very, very, very short, extremely short. Before you know it, you and I will have left this world.

00:06:25--> 00:06:33

So what is the point of 60 years? Or should I say between 60 and 70 years on average, if we're lucky?

00:06:34--> 00:07:17

What is the point of it? If we were to just enjoy ourselves, and make the most of this short life? And do you think for a moment, there's not going to be something after death, something is not going to come? We're not going to return to he who made us in the first place. as sophisticated as man thinks he is with the brain that he thinks is the top brain ever. He does not know where he was before he was born. He has no answer. Where were you before you were born? No clue, no even clue. He's only got to guess or he has to believe revelation. So we are the ones who believe in Revelation. There are others who guess and they're guessing we'll never ever get them anyway. The

00:07:17--> 00:07:51

same applies as sophisticated as man's brain might be asked a question, Where do you go after you die? They have no clue. Absolutely no clue, not even a guess. They cannot guess there is only revelation to guide us. Others will tell you you know what we get back into creation again reincarnated. This happens that happens we become birds or snakes depending on whether we did good or bad and so on. All this is a waste. Because revelation is what tells us that your soul lives on it goes to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:53--> 00:08:31

And it will live on forever and ever. What did you do to prepare for the afterlife, my mothers and sisters never ever lose focus on that, not even for a split moment. The reason is, today in the world, we pack away a lot of our wealth so that we can save we can buy we can invest our children can do good. You know, later on, they can pray for us and so on, or they can enjoy the wealth and whatever. But we forget to pack away for the avianna your Salah is pecking away for the archaea. Your proper dress code is pecking away from the attina the upbringing of your children that you've afforded them in a powerful, beautiful way, with all their values and so on the Islamic values

00:08:31--> 00:09:10

instilled within them, the respect of other creatures and so on all that would come to your benefit in the Africa. My mothers and sisters, let's never lose focus today. The world is such that materialism is shoved down our throats to the degree that we think that that's the only thing we are going to live for. So everyone is after the latest of everything we've all included. To a certain extent everybody is included including some of the most pious people they still have nice clothes and sometimes beautiful mobile phones they following the next phone and so on, you know, the iPhone five is out now there's an iPhone Ace, and so on. And then after that you'll have another one and so

00:09:10--> 00:09:52

on. Now there's a pure gold one and what have you so many things people start following and even if we're not following it, at least we read about it we see and sometimes we say wow the world is moving so fast. You know recently I was in the UK and I learned a lot of hannula technology is so so fast. And it is far more than me and you can even dream of at the moment. I think we are perhaps 50 years behind what is actually happening on the ground. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness but it will not end. When we go they will have other technology just like now that we are here. The previous generations would not even have had a clue as to the type of technology we would have. So

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

all this Yes, make use of it. Enjoy it within the limits for the right reasons. pack away as much as you can have

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

The day we're going to meet a law preparation for the day we're going to meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why Allah says you are need of Allah whilst we are absolutely independent, full of praise, no matter what you do allow us to have any Yun Hamid, independent, full of praise. Those who swear Allah doesn't affect him he's still full of praise. Those who praise Him doesn't affect him, he's still full of praise. So who does it affect? It affects them. You want to do good, it will help you. You want to do bad it will come back to haunt you. Allah says that you want to do bad it will come back to visit you call it what you want, it will definitely come back. But there's a beautiful

00:10:39--> 00:11:14

way out. What is it? repent to Allah ask Allah forgiveness, your life wrong, I made a mistake, Allah forgive me and so on. And this is why revelation is there to guide us to keep reminding us, we don't like to remind this by nature. The nature of man is such that when he or she is told bluntly that you are wrong, he doesn't like it. He won't like it or she will not like it. But we need to make ourselves those who can surrender to what is right. And this is why it has given us a brain in order for us to get closer to Allah not for us to drift away from Allah Subhana Allah Allah. So Allah says, verse number 17.

00:11:16--> 00:11:30

And that is not difficult for Allah, what is not difficult for Allah, to replace us with a different creation altogether, that simple, Allah can do it. He's already done it in the past where he's deleted nations and communities, replace them with others.

00:11:31--> 00:11:41

And he can do it. In the next verse, Allah says, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another 1002 with

00:11:42--> 00:11:50

no one's sins shall be placed on another person's shoulders. This is something very, very simple. And it's quite easy to understand.

00:11:51--> 00:12:35

If you take a look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The only exception to this is and it's actually not an exception, but what it is, is, it's an explanation. When we have taught people to do bad, we keep on getting the sin of the deeds that they will do because we taught them to do it. So it's a multiplication in the sense that if I taught a person how to steal every time they steal, I will also be achieving an equivalent sin because the source was myself. The same applies if we were to teach goodness, every time someone engages in goodness, we will achieve a reward of it because we were the ones who taught them. This is why the source of all goodness,

00:12:36--> 00:13:17

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this Ouma definitely every deed that is done by every single member of the oma the full reward of it goes to Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam making him the highest and the best of all creation. May Allah grant us even a little bit and a small portion of such goodness whereby we can be conveying goodness and people can follow it rather than us. shouldering the burdens of ourselves based on what we have taught others in terms of negativity. So my mothers and sisters Yeah, Allah says no bear of burdens will bear the burden of another. If I stop there for a minute. Today we gossip we talk we worry about other people's lives we backbite we

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

slander Oh, this

00:13:21--> 00:13:49

is absolutely forbidden because Allah says Worry about yourself. In the process of you worrying about someone else, you could just be leading yourself into Hellfire or into punishment or into a curse without realizing that whilst I was busy talking about that system, this other system and this brother and that person, whether it was true or not whatever it was, I engaged in such a big sin that I lost my seat in paradise.

00:13:50--> 00:14:31

Or I delayed my che in paradise or my place sometimes we delay delay meaning you know when you have a beautiful direct flight a feeling is so so good. Especially if you travel a lot and you know there's a direct flight going to the place you want to go to such a good feeling. But if you go to fly via displace via that place and if those places are not that grand believe me you worried and you start thinking to yourself, how would I What would I do? I've got so many hours will I will this happen with the will that happened and so on. So we inshallah we will go to Paradise, but we don't want to go via a place that is not good, which is Jana. Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

if we'd like paradise, what about yourself?

00:14:35--> 00:15:00

This is what the Quran says. If you would like Jenna Worry about yourself. Yeah, you are Latina Rahman and ecoman forsaken. Oh you who believe. Worry about yourselves. be concerned about your own self, your deeds. What good did you do? What bad did you do? Watch that mouth of yours protective over it. Watch those feelings of yours. Be protective over them. Don't let yourself feel or think or even

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Imagine a want to do that which will earn only the pleasure of the devil, may Allah protect us. So this is why Allah says.

00:15:08--> 00:15:45

And if a if a heavily laden soul calls another to carry some of its load, nothing of it will be carried, even if he should be a close relative. in simple language, what this means is if a person has committed a lot of sins, and on the Day of Judgment, they call someone else who's got lessons and say, Look, please carry my sense. Number one second scenario, a person has committed a lot of sins, and they look at the other one who's committed lessons, or the one who's committed lessons looks at the one who's committed motions and things. Let me just show that a little bit of this I might be able to carry you know, when you're traveling together, and nowadays, they allow you

00:15:45--> 00:16:24

perhaps 30 kilos on some planes. And if you've got 30 by two, for example, you might want to scout around for someone traveling to the same destination. And you give them a broad smile and a nice big type have. They don't know that you're about to say I got a little bag, can you please take it? You know, they don't know that. But look at how excited we get when we see someone especially we look at their luggage, and if nothing were you going, also going to the same place, we get so excited because we know they're going to carry on luggage for us. But that does not work when it comes to deeds. Even if it's your close relatives, and you've got 31 kilos, and they've got 20 kilos, they

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

cannot carry the extra kilo for you, not even one they cannot

00:16:29--> 00:17:08

love. May Allah safeguard us and protect us. So Allah is telling us look on your own Miss. The beauty with these type of deeds is that a lot of the times you've got excess baggage, you can just say I'm sorry, and delete the baggage method if I pick up like a typical person at the counter, and I've got 50 kilos, and I'm only allowed 20. And I look at them with a broad smile. I'm sorry, I've got a bit more you know, and they said no problem. Let it go. Do you think that would happen? No, it wouldn't. But with Allah subhanho wa Taala if we really and truly repent, we are sorry for what we did. And we asked we promised him not to do it again. Allah says we will delete it no matter how

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

heavy it was gone. It's over.

00:17:12--> 00:17:37

So we ask Allah to protect us look at the beautiful example Allah gives us Let's read it again. It says and if a heavenly laden soul calls another to carry some of its load, nothing of it will be carried even if he should be a close relative. Very simple, very easy to understand. Allah says you can only warn those who fear the Lord unseen and have established prayer.

00:17:39--> 00:17:39

Did you hear that?

00:17:40--> 00:17:55

Who can you only want those who fear the Lord unseen and establish their prayer. These two qualities This is what is needed for a reminder to have the desired effect and impact within a human being.

00:17:57--> 00:18:46

In the motto Latina Shona Bahama lady, welcome Sala if a person does not need Salah, you can leave whatever you want to them, their hearts won't move. And if a person has no consciousness of Allah, they don't fear Allah unseen, the it Nothing will back there may Allah protect us sometimes through the mercy of Allah certain things happen in our lives that make us establish our Salah. This is why my mothers and sisters point number one, we've driven this home so many times. Do not miss a single Salah. It is the most important bond between you and your maker. Do not miss a single Salah don't because if you miss a single Salah these warnings will never be able to have the desired impact

00:18:46--> 00:19:28

within you as a human being and as a Muslim. So don't miss a Salah. And when you don't miss a Salah there will come a time when automatically you will feel very uneasy when the time of Salah comes in it goes without you having read that Salah you will feel so wrong so remorseful and you will definitely feel uneasy and you'll you will establish it as soon as you can. May Allah protect us Manama and Salatin own a car odysea for use only ha ha powerful Hadith the prophet SAW Selim explains the issue of those who might have missed Salah because they overslept or because they forgot for some reason. The Hadith says read it as soon as you can, soon as you remember.

00:19:30--> 00:19:37

So, these beautiful verses have explained to us that the Warner

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

can only warn those who fear their Lord unseen and have established prayer. Let's try and get these two qualities within ourselves. Establish the prayer Charla by the will of Allah Come what may, even if you are in your conveyance, you have to establish your brain if the time of Salah is expiring, you establish that salah and by the will of Allah you can find out

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

From the olema How to fulfill that Salah I was on an aircraft and I'm sure a lot of us are so many times you don't miss us a lot just because you're on a plane, you've got to fulfill it and you fulfill it very simply, even if you're sitting on your seat, you can fulfill it if you if need be, you can actually sit as though you sitting in the sitting position and face the other direction on your seat. Just tell those next to you You know what, just Excuse me for a moment I just need to pray and they won't mind no matter who they are. They won't mind at all. So we need to understand this. And we need to make sure that we do not miss a single Salam Allah protect us from it. Then

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and whoever purifies himself only purifies himself for the benefit of his own soul.

00:20:43--> 00:21:02

And that to Allah is the final destination. So you want to purify yourself, you're not going to purify yourself for any other than your own soul who will benefit if I cleanse myself my soul benefits do you know the the shaping that the gym kind that affect people?

00:21:04--> 00:21:10

They affect those who don't establish Salah or who are sinful more than others. The reason is, it's mentioned in the Quran

00:21:12--> 00:21:52

aluna below Kamala Alton Xhosa at Tennessee law currently affecting a theme in sort of near the end Allah says do you want to know who the shout out in bother whom they descend upon these Jin kind and shouting, they descend upon those who lie a lot and who are sinful. Those who create tales and stories those who are sinful, may Allah protect us. My mothers and sisters, this is why we say when a person purifies himself, the shayateen run away from that person further than they would from an ordinary other person who has not purified himself or herself. So you want goodness purify yourself, read the Quran on a daily basis, a little bit of it, like we've said, a small portion Mashallah,

00:21:53--> 00:22:31

when we said the Sahaba international is very easy for us to understand, we had an overwhelming international response overwhelming when I say 1000s of emails and messages to say please make up we need one Mashallah this community we managed to get one for a lot of the people Mashallah by the word of Allah, the others, some of them we managed to get a few copies, but at the same time, we can all make an effort, but the worst person is he or she who got it and still doesn't read it. Now what? Now once you got it, did you read it between between last week or the previous week? And now How much did you read of it? Did you read a passage? Did you pick it up? And did you read it but but

00:22:31--> 00:22:35

if I were to tell you there's a lovely muffin recipe here, we'll know.

00:22:36--> 00:22:41

If mushroom half is without the mustard without teaching nothing. What's the recipe you will be cited?

00:22:44--> 00:22:55

Why we know the entire reason why muffins muffins, we all want to be called muffin by our loved ones don't Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and maybe make us true muffins. I mean,

00:22:56--> 00:23:36

my mothers and sisters, so this is Allah telling us if you've purified yourself, you're doing it for your own soul. So this would mean that if you have dirtied yourself, you dead in your own soul. So let's try and cleanse ourselves by the will of Allah. How do you cleanse yourself worship Allah alone, follow the sudo Muhammad Solomon, his path of how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and establish our prayer all that will come into place by the will of Allah, dress appropriately, speak properly to people and make sure that you do not engage in that which is futile. Today, I think one of the biggest challenges is that people miss their tongues with that which will result in them

00:23:36--> 00:23:56

losing a quick place in paradise. When I say a quick place, that means there is hope for us to go there. But whether it is quick or not quick, you know, it's something else. Imagine there's a long queue of people waiting to get handouts in this typhoon of the Philippines May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant me ease and may He save us from something similar.

00:23:57--> 00:24:35

And long queue and someone calls you out and dishes out everything to you and puts a little tint for you and your family. And you saw that wow, VIP here. That is just an example of the dunya to make you smile when you think of it. What about the earth era when people will be in a real disaster? And then Allah says Hang on, you never ever missed your tongue with the speech about someone else. So for you, we don't want to look at anything else. Just go to Paradise just go straight. It was the most difficult thing to protect yourself from in the age that you lived in. Just enter Paradise. It's possible that this can happen because Allah subhanho wa Taala is looking for any reason to

00:24:35--> 00:24:56

grant you entry into paradise. For me, we need to give Allah subhanho wa Taala those reasons and by the will of Allah we engage in lots of esteemed foreign Toba asking Allah forgiveness for things we know for things we don't know so that we can inshallah achieve that beautiful forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In our last panel, what Allah says was number 19, no equal,

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

not equal or the blind

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

The scene, those who see those who are blind, the two are not equal. And this verse is very deep, it's talking first about those who whose eyes are open, those whose eyes are closed, the two are not equal, one can see one cannot see, the same applies when it comes to figuratively, or from a spiritual point of view, those who are blinded, and those who see the light, the two are totally different. Some people will look at you as a Muslim, and they wonder what are you doing? You know, what is going on here? What's this Islam all about? But those who know and they've seen the light, and they've tasted the beauty of it, they will know the goodness they are in.

00:25:38--> 00:25:49

And the two are not equal. And sometimes you have people who call themselves Muslims, but they don't know what they are in. So they don't see the light either. So they move out of the light that has happened as well.

00:25:50--> 00:26:19

So this is the gift of Allah, Allah is telling us that the two are not equal, we asked him not to make us from those not only who have good vision as in our eyes, but also those who can see what is right and what is wrong. And who can protect ourselves from that which is wrong. I mean, so Allah says, no other darkness is in the light, the darkness and the light, the two are not equal, you need a brain, and you need to use it. And you need the guidance of Allah to be able to distinguish between darkness and light.

00:26:20--> 00:26:43

You know, when things happen in society and community, on a global level, anyway, you need a brain and you need to apply it. A lot of us are just enslaved by rumors, and perhaps sometimes by the media, and perhaps sometimes by forwarded messages and so many different things. We are so enslaved by it, that we don't even realize that we haven't used our brains, Allahu Akbar,

00:26:45--> 00:27:19

Allah, but it happens. And then when we are told we feel bad, that know how can this happen, but you're told someone's being honest with you, they being blunt and open with you to say, listen, just utilize your mind a little bit, apply it a bit and see where you're going wrong. This, let's not become enslaved by the media, let's not become enslaved by rumors and by messages and by forwarded messages and so on. That's the problem of the age. And we're talking of a comprehensive lot of topics, not just one issue 1000s of issues, so many things people just send to us and we send it to others and people keep on sending it in the back of your mind. You think it's the truth, whereas

00:27:19--> 00:27:40

it's not true. They are much more important things in life, but we haven't applied our mind. So Allah is telling us the blind and those who can see are not equal. So open your eyes and start looking. Open your eyes and start looking search Jake. Allah says the darkness and the light not the same. So open your eyes and figure it out, make dua to Allah to guide you to the light work towards it.

00:27:42--> 00:27:48

Amazing. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, No are the shade and the heat.

00:27:50--> 00:27:55

The shade if someone is sitting in the shade, and someone is in the heat, the two are not the same, not at all.

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

And that we know today is a very hot day for your information. This country has not seen this type of heat in my own life. I cannot recall a day when we've had 3536 degrees. I cannot recall a single day in my life. It's the hottest ever. And I think it's going to become hotter as the years pass and sweating as I'm talking to you by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if I were to be in the direct sunlight, don't you think it's different from where we are right now in the shade. You guys have a fan I don't have one.

00:28:32--> 00:28:39

It's very different. That small breeze that you might get will sort your problem out sometimes a little breeze.

00:28:40--> 00:29:20

But Allah is telling us use that to think that everything that you see in front of you has two sides to it, sometimes even more. But you need to make sure you open your eyes utilize all the capacities that Allah has provided you have to distinguish between them and to benefit from the better. This is what it is. So this is the message Allah is telling us that Allah has created the heat and he's created the cold he's created the shade and is created the light that meaning the direct heat of the sun. So it's up to you, you know the to now work towards it. So if I were to stop there for a moment, we know what will earn us Jana and what will earn us Jana so why is it that we still stand

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

in direct sunlight when we know this beautiful air conditioner and shade if you only were to walk into the room, but you standing outside then you complain about the heat to say it's so hot, but where were you Allah says we created shade imagine we created shade, and there is shade right next to you. achievable so close to you. Why don't you try? Why don't you work toward it. So an effort is required after recognition. So we've recognized what is right and what is wrong. But an effort is required to walk towards the what is right. And if we don't we are to blame. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

not equal are the blind and the Seeing no, are the darkness and the light no are the shades

00:30:09--> 00:30:50

and the heat and not equal are the living and the dead. Now this is properly we know, directly physically, they're not equal. But sometimes from a religious angle as well, you find people are dead, dead, meaning they've got no form of spirituality in them. They need a depressed life full of partying drugs, alcohol, adultery, fornication, whatever else, you know, that loud beat that controls your head in your mind, the demons that come and affect us on a daily basis. And thereafter, you know that tattooing the whole body and piercing the whole body and you never ever happy, it carries on and on and on and on and on, until the day they die. And that's it the waste of

00:30:50--> 00:31:30

a life. And yet people think, Wow, what a great person that was, you know, they were, they were the pop star of the age, not realizing that in reality, those who were totally unknown, sometimes they had a much more content life, because they recognize their makeup, and the fact that they're going to go back to their makeup. So they were alive. in the real sense, life. You have life in you, why are you worshiping the one who gave you the life so you always going to be in a happy mood. Lauer, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness, you know, the point that we derive from this as well is that every one of us knows what's right and wrong, but a lot of us still sit in the comfort of

00:31:30--> 00:31:44

what's wrong, because it's luxurious. For us. It's, it's good, it's suits the desire sometimes. So to fight the desire of yours to do that, which is wrong, from the point of view of our own maker,

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

is what is is what will make us the best of people in Charlotte to sit

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

meaning to make an effort

00:31:52--> 00:31:57

to make an effort to do the right thing. That is what will benefit us by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

So Allah says,

00:32:01--> 00:32:11

Indeed, Allah causes to hear whom He wills, but you cannot make hear those in the graves. If you stop there for a moment.

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

Two things we want to talk about

00:32:15--> 00:32:31

the people who have been buried, can they hear you or not? It's a question. The answer to that is they only hear what Allah wants them to hear. So if you were to give them a long lecture and say, you know, uncle, or dad, who passed away,

00:32:32--> 00:32:43

and someone were to sit at his grave and say, Dad, you know, last week those people came home, they were arguing and so dad can't hear a thing, not a word. If that was the case, everyone would turn on the

00:32:45--> 00:33:06

radio and leave it connected or have a not a baby link. They would call it a dead link. We put it in they got video and audio and said this is in your grave. The other day someone sent me a beautiful WhatsApp message. I laughed and I laughed and I laughed. Let me share it with you. There was a man at a graveyard. And he was saying unlike Hannah, which means may Allah have mercy on him

00:33:08--> 00:33:26

about the dead person. What brought him to the graveyard today people hardly visit the graveyard they don't make dua even for the deceased they forget the deceased so you know if there's free Wi Fi anyway, oh, everyone wants to go there. So what this young man did, he says when I die, just put free Wi Fi by my grave.

00:33:27--> 00:33:34

So these people all gone there to do what to connect to the Wi Fi in the making to say Allah have mercy on him What a good man.

00:33:36--> 00:33:57

So that was more of a joke but the point being raised is how how men is so excited because they're getting something totally different from what they are supposed to be at that particular place. So it's brought them way anyway like I told people, you want all the kids to be at the masjid all you got to do is have free Wi Fi in the masjid. The only problem is you have to switch it off salata.

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

I guarantee you it will bring at least 50 to 60 answers to the MST I wouldn't be surprised if women parked in the parking and waited as well. And they were all connected on Wi Fi.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

Especially with high speed.

00:34:13--> 00:34:25

Mothers brothers and sisters, you know what I'm talking about by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala really, the world is changing and it's changing fast. We have to think of these things I really really am thinking of installing Wi Fi

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

some way allow Allah Subhana Allah grant us all goodness, and may He make us from those who can benefit the youth no matter how but we need to benefit them we need to think of ways so the point being raised here inshallah, after we read this verse is the people in the graves cannot hear except that which Allah wants them to hear. So if you say a Salam aleikum, Allah Dr. Emil Mina wouldn't ask me certain words. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes them hear those words, like we know regarding Rasulullah saw Salah mommy I hadn't use anymore la la hora de la Sol

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

You know anyone who greets me, Allah subhanho wa Taala places the roof into my body and I respond that particular salam, which would mean constantly there is Salam upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he is constantly responding to that how exactly we only Allah knows, but we believe in it. And we know that this happens. So when it comes to the graves of the others, it's Allah who chooses what exactly these people are going to hear how they're going to hear it, we have no clue we just know they hear certain the words that Allah wants them to hear. So who makes them here? It is Allah. It's not me or you or anyone else. It's Allah who makes them here. And how harbor no clue but

00:35:39--> 00:36:12

I know Allah makes them here. that's point number one. Point number two is, when a person is spiritually did, you can say what you want to them whether or not they will take the lead is in the hands of Allah. That's it. Today, we've said so many words, tomorrow, we might not even be able to say direct with there are certain people who listen to a lecture online, and they change their lives. And some people listen to live lectures, and they don't change the lives. In fact, they probably don't even want to listen to it. They tend to I don't even want to go. Others would listen to it from afar and change their lives. So all this is in the hands of Allah, Allah says you cannot

00:36:12--> 00:36:53

make here who we do not want you to make here. And who will we want you to make here, those who strive towards us, those who want to get close to Allah, Allah never, never ever, there is no one who tries to come closer to Allah that Allah chases away, never ever. It doesn't happen. If you come close to Allah, even a hand span he says, I come to you a whole foot, if you come to me walking, I come to you rushing powerful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So my brothers and sisters, you just need to try. You need to try to get closer to Allah, genuinely. And Allah will open your doors with those of guidance, one after the other. And remember, the materialistic items of this

00:36:53--> 00:37:16

world will not get you very far. Not at all. Not at all. Sometimes the more you have, the further away you drift from Allah, it can happen or the more problems and issues you have in your home. Some of the happiest people are some of the poorer people. And sometimes some of those who are embroiled in generations of battle happened to be those who have millions through the generations. This is all just a plan of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:37:26--> 00:37:38

a warner in antenna Elana the way it's worded in Arabic, it translates exactly as this you Omaha mozzarella or not but a warner, you are only a warner, you won't.

00:37:40--> 00:37:42

Indeed, we have sent you with the truth

00:37:44--> 00:37:47

as a bringer of good tidings and the Warner

00:37:48--> 00:37:51

and there was no nation but

00:37:53--> 00:38:32

that there has passed within it. A Warner every nation we sent a warner to someone came to warn that we sent it. We know we wrote it down, we know what's happening. And we know what we did. So nobody can say we did not have a warner. Allah says we're in Oman. Illa Allah, every nation has had a warner sent to them at some stage somewhere down. And Allah Subhana Allah says, and if they deny you all this is a powerful verse. This is such a powerful verse because sometimes we speak to our children, sometimes we speak to others. Sometimes we speak to so many categories of people, we have different responses. And the messengers to they spoke to their family members, they spoke to the

00:38:32--> 00:38:57

circles which were broader and so on. And they have had different responses. So Allah says, if they deny you, they already have those before them denied. So you're not the only one that they're going to hurt us. You're not the only one that they're going to trouble. You're not the only one that they're going to try and block and stop. You're not the only one that they're going to deny and they're going to make life difficult for they've done it already to all those before you.

00:38:58--> 00:39:33

Amazing, amazing, beautiful solice achieved in the heart of those who are doing the right work. I've always said if you're dressed appropriately you will only know so if people have laughed at you, if people have made a mockery people are trying to make your life difficult. If you are a color to that which is upright you will only know it if people have made life difficult for you laughed at you try to make things you know difficult for you and so on then you know and handle Are you heading in the right direction by the word of Allah Subhana Allah Allah so Allah is giving comfort to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saying their messages came to them with clear proofs and written ordinances.

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

And with the enlightening scripture, then Allah says, Then I see the ones with disbelieved and how terrible was my reproach, the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala was very, very severe. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us to open our doors to make us from those who can learn a lesson to make us from those who truly understand that Allah is in absolutely no need of any one of us. We are in total

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

An absolute need of Allah subhanho wa Taala my mothers and sisters we pray for rain We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with beautiful and beneficial rain This is the rainy season here within this country and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it that which will be full of Baraka and mercy and not that which will be a punishment brothers and sisters I request you to and I hope that we can inshallah make to offer one another. And at the same time, we hope to meet again, until then we say what's on Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina, Muhammad Subhana Allah Subhana Cologne and handig
