00:03:15--> 00:03:53

my dearest mothers and sisters, the visitors we've just read Allah subhanho wa Taala explained so beautifully, how he has created various creatures, including mankind. So verse number 71, is a question where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Do they not see that we have created for them from what our hands have made grazing livestock, and when they are their owners, so they are certain creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala that are owned by other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. humankind would notice

00:03:54--> 00:04:38

that them being the highest of all creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They definitely have the upper hand, although the other creatures besides human beings have rights over the human being. So even if we own the cattle that are being spoken about in this particular verse, the cattle have rights over us. It's not just that we can do as we please to the cattle even if we would like to consume, for example, where Allah subhanahu wa taala has permitted consumption, it is of utmost importance that we do so in a way that fulfills all the rights of those creatures. So we do not allow that animal to suffer or struggle, nor do we treat it in a fashion that is unacceptable. We

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

must feed it properly nor do we sacrifice it or slaughter it in a way that it is seeing the others or the others are seeing what is happening to the one that is being slaughtered at that particular time and so on. And when we use these animals, the rights have been made mentioned by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we're in even to to the soil or the or the land.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

We are not supposed to overburden the animals, even if it is a donkey, for example, we are not allowed to overburden it in a way that it becomes taxing for that particular animal. Bear in mind to quench the thirst of the animal, bear in mind not to put a load on an animal that is greater than the animal can actually take. Bear in mind not to make the animal work long hours such that it has had no risk, bearing in mind that the animal also needs a little bit of company amazing. So if you keep an animal singular, just alone, all on its own in one corner, imagine if that were to happen to myself or yourself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to fulfill the rights of

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

animals.

00:05:42--> 00:06:29

So these are just some of the animals if an animal is sick, it's important for us to try and ensure we do whatever is in our capacity to alleviate that particular suffering or the sickness of that animal. And all this is rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the question being asked here is, does mankind not see that Allah has created from with meaning by himself, he has created that which is within the capital or the capital itself, that which we then become the owners of, and what are the other benefits of that of the capital losses, and we have tamed them for them. So some of them they ride and some of them they eat. Imagine not only the capital, if we take a look at something

00:06:29--> 00:07:02

broader, you have some animals that are actually wild, you have dogs, for example, it is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has allowed mankind to train dogs in a way that those dogs can go hunting, or those dogs can act as security dogs, you know, and this is all by the training that mankind gives the dogs that Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed men to give. So this is amazing because many times we take this for granted and we think okay, it's our brain, it's our mind, like we said last week or the previous week, that

00:07:04--> 00:07:43

amazing how mankind earns and then he forgets that the one who gave him the brain to think of the the deal that he has struck is actually a lot so he says that you know what, I am the one who struck the deal. So it was my intelligence. So it was my doing, not realizing Well, okay, let's go one step back. Where did you get the intelligence from? Amazing May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Baraka in our sustenance and may make us from those who can earn with ease so that we can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as a result, so my mothers and sisters importantly, for us to take a look at all the gifts that Allah has given us everything and to consider the fact that this has come from Allah

00:07:43--> 00:08:20

and appreciate that and then thank Allah for it and let it make be a means of you becoming closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today we are seated here we have motor vehicles, we have someone who might have a motor vehicle who can make life easier for us to get from point A to point B, do we not see that doing nothing for a moment Allah gave man the intellect that intellect was then used by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala to perhaps invent some form of conveyance that now has made life so easy for us in a way that had we been living many years ago, we wouldn't even have known that this particular type of technology is ready to come up.

00:08:21--> 00:08:57

Take a look at the mobile phones. Just today I was thinking that 15 years back, we didn't even know that we would be owning the most important devices and today someone sends me a message on WhatsApp saying that Do you know have you ever read the permissions that WhatsApp requests from you will go home and you'll get a shock it says that WhatsApp has the permission to turn on your video without your permission and to turn on your voice recorder without your permission. So if you're sitting and talking it's probably video in you and listening to you it's possible and that is all there and we just press agree and we carry on using it Mashallah we have nothing to hide. But at the end of the

00:08:57--> 00:09:39

day, it's privacy being invaded, but we do so happily because it outweighs the worst app sometimes. And I'm just giving you one little example but there are so many others Allahu Akbar, I hope I haven't surprised you. However, getting back to for example, the cattle it themselves if you look at the leather that we use or the skin that is used to make leather to have the jackets and the handbags and so many other things, in fact even in the cars, the seats and so on. All this is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has blessed us with keeping such stuff in the particular or on the earth so that we can make use of it this is why we've always said my mothers and sisters everything

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

you have is from the earth today What else do you have your watch your clothes, your your your perfumes, what else anything you eating, anything you perhaps your motor vehicles, every single iTunes or the what it is made of is all from the earth. It comes from the earth and we need to thank Allah for having played

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

On the earth in a way that we can modify it from one perhaps

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

from one point to another, from one nature from one

00:10:12--> 00:10:27

point of that particular item to another level Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to thank him. And in order to thank him, we would have to ponder over his gifts because many times we don't even realize the gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us because we haven't even thought of him.

00:10:29--> 00:10:44

So Allah says, and we have tamed them for them. So some of them they ride and some of them they eat, and for very, very, there are other benefits and drinks as well. So Will they not be grateful?

00:10:45--> 00:11:30

Allah is making mention of milk Subhana Allah, that which we take for granted, if you take a look at the color and the texture of milk, it is amazing where it comes from and how it looks, and how, what its properties are the amount of nourishment that we get from a glass of milk, it's amazing and yet we sometimes do not thank Allah for it. And we don't realize the amount of creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala that have been used in what has happened in the entire process. Before we actually have got the mood. We just go to the shops for example, and we just put the dollar I hope it's actually $1 or less but last time I bought milk was a long time ago not to say I haven't done it,

00:11:30--> 00:12:07

but perhaps I don't do the buying. So it's amazing how we just get it and we just drink and we just say oh Mashallah pass the milk and get the milk and so on. But hang on, where did it come from? Have you ever thanked Allah, bare minimum, read the two hours before you drink the milk and after you drink it to thank Allah to appreciate the gift of Allah and thereafter trying to obey the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To show gratitude, the biggest way of showing gratitude to Allah is to leave prohibitions and to engage in instructions. That's the biggest way of showing the gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The greatest act of worship ever can be simplified in one

00:12:07--> 00:12:46

sentence to say obey instructions, stay away from prohibitions, and the game is over a lot of work for Allah subhanho wa Taala help us It sounds so easy, but it's a lifetime journey. And also we've got to obviously engage in lots of repentance because as human beings we, and we make mistakes. So my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala asked a question, and he says, so will they not be grateful? Answer the question, may Allah bless us and make it easy for us to answer that question in sha Allah, and may we be from amongst those who are grateful. So Allah says, but they have taken besides a lot of false deities, that perhaps they would be helped

00:12:49--> 00:13:32

people worship other things because they want help and success, and they want to achieve whatever they would like, not realizing the owner of that is Allah, if you want to help him success, the owner of elephants successes, Allah, so Allah says, We gave them just the capital is enough for them to think as to the gifts that the Creator has bestowed upon them. But they still want to worship deities besides Allah in order that they may be helped. And in order that they would perhaps achieve something. May Allah protect us. So Allah is wanting us to say, look, part of ingratitude is when you worship anything besides Allah, even if in the process, you are trying to achieve some form of

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

health assistance, or anything else.

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

So Allah says, but they have taken besides Allah, deities, that perhaps they wouldn't be helped.

00:13:42--> 00:14:22

And this sums up the main reason why people worship, you know, other items, whether it be the devil, whether it be the jinn, whether it be anything else, whether it be money, whether it be another person, whether it be a grave, whether it be a tree, whether it be anything or everything else within the creatures, a lot of the times, it's just because people want some form of help. And Allah says, the owner of health is a law, your test in your life is solely for Allah to put in front of you a certain need, and to see whether you would worship Allah alone as a result and keep on crying to him and asking him or whether there comes a boiling point, after which you start worshiping

00:14:22--> 00:14:57

things besides Allah, thinking that you are going to be helped by doing this. And by doing that, whereas the only help can come from Allah, this is what you're seeing. And this is the power of these words where allies warning us and at the same time advising us and at the same time making mention of the gifts upon us and giving us hope, and at the same time telling us do not lose hope because ultimately, you have to return to me whether you got what you wanted in this world or not, does not make you successful, but who you worship and how you worship team while they will definitely affect your success. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us success in the dunya and in the

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

alpha. So Allah says

00:15:00--> 00:15:17

They are not able to help them. Meaning mankind should know that these deities that they are worshipping will never be able to help them. And they themselves have for them soldiers in attendance Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:15:18--> 00:15:23

that they will not be able to help themselves nor will they be able to help them.

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

Last Takeru NASA home

00:15:27--> 00:15:51

wahama home john doe macaroon. These are soldiers in attendance. Let's take a look at what the footnote says it says here, maintaining and protecting the gods. Another interpretation is that the gods will be soldiers set against them in hellfire. So two points of interpretation. One is these gods that people are worshipping besides Allah say for example, the idols

00:15:52--> 00:16:34

they need to be looked after the dust settles on them needs to be washed, brushed off every day or blown off everyday or dusted every day. And yet they call them God's the people who are being worshipped besides a lot dead in their grave sometimes. And they need for example, the mercy of Allah themselves. Yet people would go to those graves if there is a wild plant growing on that particular grave, it would need to be plucked out and weeded off yet the person in that grave who is unable to read off a plaque of a plant on top of it is actually being worshipped as a god and a deity to get closer to Allah or to alleviate some form of suffering and so on. What foolish behavior

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

but people still do it.

00:16:37--> 00:17:05

Imagine a little piece of grass a little blade of grass growing from the top cannot be removed by the, the so called God that is in the grave that is being worshipped besides Allah or to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, worship Me alone, no one else worship me I am the owner of absolutely everything. So Allah is all these visits are drawing our attention to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah says, they themselves are in

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

our for them soldiers, meaning are for the day it is that they are worshipping soldiers in attendance, which meaning which means they look after the needs of the same creatures that they're worshiping. I recall, there was a time

00:17:20--> 00:17:55

when I was in India A long time ago, and there was a man who was literally being worshipped the people kissed his feet and so on. And I have had a chance to speak to him. And I told him Why, why do you allow this to happen is to say, Look, just leave him alone. I know that I'm not going to be able to do everything that they would like and so on, but let them at least you know, respect me and so on. And a little while later, the man died and people did not even want to bury him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the soul and I'm thinking this is the deity they used to worship. This is someone who allowed himself to be worshipped besides Allah and Allah, he knew that this is wrong,

00:17:55--> 00:18:35

and he knew that he was not a god. And he knew that he too had very problems and digestive problems and everything else, yet they wish him as know that he could solve their problems amazing. Imagine a man cannot protect himself from diarrhea. And at the same time, people think that he can give them things that they don't have amazing. Get yourself sorted out, get your belly sorted out first, then we will talk Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed as I had to use this lowly example for us, to bring it closer to our minds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us he's given us a lot. And sometimes we are ungrateful by worshiping things besides Him. Sometimes we even worship our wealth,

00:18:35--> 00:19:13

by allowing it to make us grow big heads and to make us think that we ourselves are the ones in authority and we can do things against the law just because we've got the wealth. And just because we've got May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us more humble with the Baraka of the the sustenance that he has granted us in a way that it brings us closer to him rather than distance us from him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says here, and sorry, before I carry on the second interpretation of it is that these deities, some of the innocent deities we talking about would be bearing witness against those who worship them on the Day of Judgment. So if for example, you take a look at his Salah, he

00:19:13--> 00:19:45

said, Jesus May peace be upon him being worshipped besides Allah, on the day of judgment, he will be asked the question, did you instruct these people to worship you and your mother? besides Allah subhanho wa Taala? And he will say no, not at all, he will bear witness against them. And the same applies to the sticks and stones and everything else that people are worshipping those people who did not want to be worshipped and they were still being worshipped. They will all bear witness against those who worship them to say, we never instructed this. This is what these people did, and they were wrong. In fact, we worship you Oh Allah, how could they worship us?

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

So Allah says

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

so let's not this speech preview, Omaha masala Allahu Allah He was set up. Now obviously these verses were revealed at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the

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

Have courage was the one who were the ones who were engaged in the biggest type of shift. And they were the ones who were primarily addressed by these verses. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you know, they used to utter a lot of bad words against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And to this date, anyone who does any form of good work, they will be bad words uttered against them. And this is why sometimes your success is also gauged by the number of unjustified bad words that are uttered against you. So if you want to know whether you're a successful person, a lot of people sometimes will utter unjustified bad words against you, thank Allah, to see a lot of these people are

00:20:35--> 00:20:56

acknowledging that I've done something right. And I've done something correct because Had we been nobodies and had we achieved absolutely not people who were dormant completely nobody would even utter one word for us or against us. Just look at those who are vagabonds on the streets, asking, for example, begging all day, achieving absolutely nothing, people do not talk about them.

00:20:57--> 00:21:29

The minute you pass your level exams, Mashallah, and the minute you have, you know, you You are now a little half of the moron at a very young age. And so when people start talking about, as you grow older, they start talking negative about you, perhaps when you were young, they might still utter good words. And even when you're young, people start saying, oh, that man's, you know, this little child's mother, they think she's a big deal just because her child is this, and this child thinks she's big boots, and so on the middle child thinks she's clever clogs, and so on. All these words are uttered because they have been blessed by Allah. That's the reason. Now, the moral of what I'm

00:21:29--> 00:22:05

saying here is, let us not be from amongst those who utter bad words about others, keep your mouth clean, keep it clean, you would never know who is close to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that would earn the Wrath of Allah when we utter bad words about those lavaca. So just protect your tongue, and you'll be saved. A lot of the times people go through great difficulty and turmoil in life solely because it's a repayment of some bad rumor, they spread with their tongues, about some friend of Allah, and they had no clue that this was a close, close friend of Allah subhanho wa Taala, they perhaps forwarded a WhatsApp message, or perhaps just press click on the same button,

00:22:06--> 00:22:41

and didn't know that that was the seed of that destruction, forever to come. May Allah protect us because they did not seek forgiveness from such. So this is why it's important for us to watch out what we say about others because we never know their link with Allah. And even if they did not have such a powerful link with Allah subhanho wa Taala, we still need to worry about what we say regarding others because the tables can turn and we can suffocate much more than they ever have. And this would have been a result of our own doings and deeds, May Allah forgive us, and may him help us to protect our mouths or tongues, and to protect our entire systems. Because today, even if your

00:22:41--> 00:22:53

mouth is sealed with a tape, you can still continue backbiting, through pressing the buttons and so on. And you know that I'm speaking about technology and the mobile phones and so on. May Allah protect us. So Allah says,

00:22:55--> 00:23:14

so let not their speech preview. Oh, Mohammed Salalah alayhi wasallam Indeed, we know what they conceal, and what they declare, we know absolutely everything. This is also a lesson for all of us to say when people talk bad about us, do not let it breathe you don't let it leave you. You know if someone calls you a dog?

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

Does it mean you have a kennel?

00:23:17--> 00:23:49

If someone calls you a dog, does it mean you chew on bones? What does it mean? Does it make you a dog? It doesn't. It's their perception. Perhaps they're blind. So don't let it grieve you they can call you anything. Love Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to digest words that others are uttering sometimes about us in a way that they get out of our system without even having affected us. So Allah says, Does man not consider that we created him from a mere droplet of semen?

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

When at once he's a clear adversary.

00:23:56--> 00:24:25

Allah is reminding us of our origins, every one of us more than a few years ago, we will not even in existence, nothing to be made mention of. I was not known neither as he No, she No, it's not at all. No one knew I was going to come. And no one knew I was going to be here. And then when we come we have a big mouth. Basically, that's what it is. Literally, that's it. That's what is being said here. Unless you don't you know, you were made from a droplet of semen from a little drop of sperm. And now you want to come and argue,

00:24:26--> 00:24:59

wow, that's powerful. That is powerful. And this is why sometimes, you know, when I read surah, Yaseen, and through the day or a few days later or whenever else and we notice, you know, people arguing and screaming and swearing and shouting, and I just close my eyes and I smile and I say Allah, this man means that verse to be read, and you know, to be reminded that you are you are just a droplet of semen at one stage, did you look at you screaming today as though you're the top boss of the dunya Allahu Akbar. Amazing. So Allah is considered

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

Remember your humble beginnings? Where did you start from? And this is why Watch your mouth. Be careful what you say. Don't be an adversary. Don't start arguing about Allah you are nothing and you've been returned to New to the soil. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us all. So, these are some of the powerful verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the last few verses of surah Yaseen, where Allah subhanahu wa taala clarifies a very, very important matter. But Allah says in verse number 78, and he presents for us an example and forgets his own creation. He says, who will give life to bones whilst they are disintegrated. So men, he presents

00:25:45--> 00:26:17

for Allah, an example. And he forgets that he himself was created from dust or from semen depending on the various stages of creation. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Look at how a man is asking a question, that who will give life to these bones after they have been decomposed? It man does not realize but you will also nothing at one stage. So who are you to ask that question? How can you doubt that Allah is going to resurrect you when he made you in the first place?

00:26:19--> 00:26:43

So this was a question that was asked at the time of production. It is being asked today also by people who are perhaps much more highly educated in terms of the worldly matters. And they're still asking the same question where they say, how are we going to be resurrected after our bones have decomposed completely into the soil? And Allah says, Let's listen to the answer. See, which means all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respond to them by saying,

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

He will give them life who produced them in the first place, and he is of all creation, knowing Allah knows entire creation, he who created you in the first place will give you life once again.

00:27:02--> 00:27:09

And then Allah says, It is he who made for you from the green three fire.

00:27:11--> 00:27:32

And then from it, you ignite These are some of the gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We could go into great depth regarding some of these gifts of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But inshallah we will be brief. The idea is to translate into extract a few benefits for us to implement within our lives and to learn from the message of the Quran. So Allah says,

00:27:33--> 00:27:43

Is it not he who created the heavens and the earth? Or is not he who created the heavens and the earth able to create the likes of them?

00:27:44--> 00:28:29

Yes, it is so and he is the knowing the Creator, if Allah created the heavens, the earth and everything else, is he not able to create something similar or recreate if he wills or do whatever he wants? He can. So Allah makes Allah is the Creator, ask him call out to Him, He will respond. And believe me if Allah has not given you something it is because he knows that it was best for you not to have it. This is something that a lot of us find difficult to accept. We want for example, a million dollars and we work so hard, and every time we reach 900,000 we start dropping back love Wow, that's a big figure Mashallah thank Allah for that. Love will never get to a million. And we

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

say but he Allah I was right there. Allah says we know it's not good for you. That's why we're not giving it to you but your mind, your system is human. So human systems are well beyond the system of Allah subhanho, meaning well below the system of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that we will never understand certain. In fact, a lot of the Divine wisdoms of Allah subhana wa tada we have to accept and this is what the man is all about. to accept the decree of Allah, Allah says you try whatever is in your capacity, whether or not I give it to you my decision, my decision totally. And if you accept that, it's my decision, that's the day you get happiness and contentment, and that's the day

00:29:09--> 00:29:52

you lead a life enjoying what Allah has given you. And Subhanallah thanking Allah that He has perhaps kept certain things away from you, Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all with our needs, and may He make us from amongst those really, who can achieve what we want and maybe keep away from us that which is detrimental for us, whether we like it or not, I mean, so Allah says, say, He will give them life who produced them in the first time in the first place, and he is of all creation knowing it is he who made for you from the green tree fire, and then from it you ignite is not he who created the heavens and the earth able to create the likes of them. Yes, it is so and he is the

00:29:52--> 00:29:53

knowing creator.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

His command is only when he intends the thing that he says to it.

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

Be

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

and it is

00:30:03--> 00:30:17

our largest is B and it is anything you want. That seems so impossible. Just remember for Allah Allahu binal Coffee when noon, his instruction is between a calf and the noon B and it is

00:30:18--> 00:31:08

cool. So we ask a lot to say that for us as well to create the miracles for us because for him, it is something minor and simple. So this is why I love his his command is only when he intends a thing that he says to it be. And it is in the last verse of this powerful surah Allah says so Exalted is He hi Is he in whose hand is the rearm of all things, absolute control of every single aspect of existence. And to him, you will all be returned. So this is Allah, this is the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala every single one of us, no matter how powerful we are, we will still return to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:31:09--> 00:31:19

my mothers and sisters, we pause here for a few moments. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive us for the times when we have not

00:31:21--> 00:31:32

recognized his power in our lives when we have not acknowledged his gifts. The gifts that he has bestowed upon us mankind's weakness is that we concentrate on matters

00:31:33--> 00:31:45

that are negative, forgetting all the positives, we concentrate on matters that are perhaps not as we would like them, not realizing that that's the way Allah likes them.

00:31:46--> 00:32:26

muscles are making our creators some people so Panama, some people are very, very close to Allah subhanho wa Taala, no matter what happens to them, they say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, Allah really has, we praise Allah upon every condition, you have this condition Alhamdulillah you've broken a tooth and hamdulillah This is this happened that comes in that you suffer the loss of hamdulillah there was a prophet that came in your direction the Prophet as in some form of gain Alhamdulillah So we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything, let's not be so weak that we only concentrate on negatives. And let's not be upset with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:32:26--> 00:32:32

people sometimes become angry with Allah subhanaw taala if they don't realize my brothers and sisters,

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

I want to give a little example, before we end today,

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

have you ever witnessed the cattle

00:32:41--> 00:32:44

when they move through a dip tank

00:32:46--> 00:33:02

in order perhaps to cleanse them from some form of sickness or to prevent the disease and so on. There is a tank dip tank and the cattle walk through it. And as they go into this dip tank, and they walk out the other side having dipped part of their

00:33:04--> 00:33:11

perhaps a part of their bodies, maybe the legs and so on into the or the hooves maybe

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

into this dip tank. And they walk out the other side.

00:33:17--> 00:33:55

That is the example of this world, every one of us is just passing through the dip tank. This dip tank takes a short period of time perhaps a few years, 70 years 60 to 70 years on average. So what happens when we get into the dip tank we have to come out of the dip tank. And when we get into the dip tank, some of us become a bit cozy because the water is warm and we feeling nice. And you know everything is wow, beautiful. So now we don't want to come out of the dip tank. But real life is outside the dip tank. It's not in the dip tank. So this life that we have is very temporary, very, very temporary. And if it was the everlasting life, it would have been much longer than this. This

00:33:55--> 00:34:37

life is very, very short. SubhanAllah so this is why remember that we are only here for a few moments. Just for a few moments. Do not let this worldly life deceive you. The beauty of it, the sweetness of it, the scent of it, the lovely people you might meet in it, don't let them make you do that which will displease Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, you will become a little bit comfortable in this diff tense because 6070 years to us is quite a long period of time. But if you take a look at it relatively, so many billions have come into the dunya and passed without them even being known today. Nobody knows who they were a lot of them. Not even worth mentioning Allahu Akbar, each one is

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

worried about himself. So this is why in my short stay during my time in this particular little dip tank, I will walk through it in a way that will please Allah subhanho wa Taala thanking him for whatever he's allowed me to enjoy as I was in here and asking his forgiveness for whatever I may have trampled upon in terms of doing that which is not permissible.

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

Or perhaps prohibited or frowned upon. May Allah forgive us all in a way that when we come out of the dip tank we will achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us, brothers and sisters, a few more minutes remaining but I wish to close a little bit earlier by making mention of something inshallah, that you will be receiving in a few moments, during a recent trip to Morocco to makalah we managed to bring for you for each one of you in Sharla a little bit of Zamzam and some days, so I hope you can at least enjoy that make dua for us. And we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us this opportunity. Like you know, we started in September

00:35:38--> 00:36:20

2000. And now we are setting in 2014, perhaps 13 and a half years later, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for allowing us to go strong with this particular session and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us grow in his obedience and to help us learn the words of his in the way that he can guide us and we search for that guidance and ask for the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and work towards it. So we ask you to pray for us also, it seems like it's a beautiful day out there, perhaps it might be raining. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us with the best of weather. And perhaps we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala also to grant us rain that is beneficial protect us from rain

00:36:20--> 00:37:01

that will be harmful and detrimental you and I do know that in this country we have perhaps some of the best weather in the whole world. And we thank Allah for that. We should not become forgetful of that even though some of the days are a little bit warm. But to be honest with you 34 degrees as a maximum is absolutely beautiful weather. If you take a look at other countries that hit 50 and if you take a look at the minimum day, daylight weather perhaps of about 15 is absolutely awesome when others go to minus 15 minus 20. We thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for whatever he's blessed us with. Let's think of these good things. And let's make the most of it was Allah was lm OVA gala Nabina
