Camila Romani Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was happy, his main.

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

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless him and to bless all his companions to bless every single one of us to grant us goodness, once again We ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to accept from us, this great act of worship that we have engaged in known as DITA we have in the evenings of the month of Ramadan, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us also the fasting, and may He make us from those who fasts correctly, may he make us from those who can abstain in the true sense from those things that we are meant to be abstaining from. Remember, whilst we are

00:00:51--> 00:01:33

fasting, it is not only to abstain or to be conscious of what is going into your mouth, but even what is coming out of your mouth. This is something that sometimes we forget about. So you find people who are fasting Mashallah they stay away from food 10 minutes before the time right up to five minutes after the time, but throughout the afternoon, they were swearing and lying and you know, engaging in all forms of bad mouthing, that is not acceptable. The Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and we repeat this every year, man Lamia de Kola zurriola melebihi well Jalla fillet Salim Mahajan, fee and yada Maha Mashallah whosoever is not going to abstain or

00:01:33--> 00:01:50

refrain from the vulgar or the bad speech that which is incorrect, unacceptable, and the false witness and so on during the month of Ramadan was fasting, then Allah subhanho wa Taala does not meet the fact that they are abstaining from their food, they are actually wasting their time.

00:01:52--> 00:02:39

That having been said, yesterday, we had been speaking about how shavon had planned with Adam alayhis Salatu was salam, the first of mankind and how Allah subhanho wa Taala created him today we'd like to continue from where we left off. And I'd like to make mention of a few points that we did not mention yesterday to begin with. How did the angels know that this man who's going to come onto the earth is going to be corrupt and is going to spill blood? How did they know that they said it immediately. So there are two explanations to it. The first one is because of the previous experience with what we've learned was the been kind who were on the earth. So because those who are

00:02:39--> 00:02:59

on the earth before, that is what they did. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, when he decided to create incense, automatically, they understood that if this incident is going to go as a Khalifa onto the earth, then they will also engage in something similar. That is number one. Number two, when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:00--> 00:03:45

took the dust from the earth, they knew that this insane is going to go on to the earth. And if he's a believer, going to come one after the other, he will want as much as possible for himself during that lifespan, and he will become selfish. And he will, it will then result in each one becoming jealous of what the other one has. And we will see that when we get to the story of the children of Adam and Eve salatu salam, that is where it all started. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a deeper understanding, we need to know that we should defy, that he believes that Satan the devil, who promised Allah that we would actually follow Him and not alone. We are following Allah

00:03:45--> 00:03:52

subhanho wa Taala and not at least, and something very interesting. the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is so great

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

that if a person has to follow a police

00:03:57--> 00:04:01

for 70 years, or for a long period of time,

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

if for one second, they have to then turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala everything is wiped out, every drop of evil is wiped out, and they start with a new leaf. So to turn a new page is not difficult for mankind. But we need to turn the page. So Panama when you're reading a book and you've got to the end of it, you want to know what's on the next page. If you're not going to take your finger and try and turn the page How is it going to turn? So the same applies and effort is required to please Allah Subhana Allah to Allah May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us forgiveness.

00:04:39--> 00:04:55

Another point we need to know is yesterday we made mention of the size of Adam and his salatu salam and we said the minimum was that he was 18 meters tall. Imagine what is 18 meters very, very tall Mashallah. Now that is the original height of man.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

And we've become shorter and like what the Theory of Everything

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

suggests that men was shorter now they becoming taller. I do know that nowadays because of all the fertilizer in the shoes of the youngsters they becoming taller than us Mashallah. Or should I say on the genetically modified foods and so on. But that does not mean that they are as tall as those before then we know of the previous nations who used to Allah subhanho wa Taala says they used to carve the mountains to live in the mountains. Imagine what must have happened at the time how big they must have been. So we are minute compared to them. Not only that they had an average lifespan of 1000 years and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says amaru Mati Medina CTN Illa Sabri the

00:05:41--> 00:06:23

lifespan of the members of my own man is between 60 and 70 years. I always like to say, if a person has clocked 70 they're actually now in extra time. Law Kabbalah, it is a gift of Allah, they can now prepare even better, to meet with Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, may Allah have mercy on all of us. Remember, no matter how long you live, you have to go, no matter how long you live, you have to go there is no ways you are not going to go. So the best, the best bet, if you were to take a bet is to prepare for when you are going. Some people don't want to understand that which is so simple. There are still people who say no, let me enjoy. Well, if you go whilst you enjoy, there will be no

00:06:23--> 00:07:04

enjoyment thereafter. So the best bet is to work hard. It's like a person saying let me not study for the exams. And then you have the examination, who was foolish, it is you to blame. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. So when we are going to be resurrected on the day of the AMA, we will all be the height of Adam alayhis salatu salam, every one of us will be 18 meters tall. Imagine every one of us will be 18 meters tall. Very interestingly, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes mention of when the Trumpet will be blown, everything will come to an end, everything will be destroyed, and thereafter they will be arraigned thick,

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

white rain that will fall on the earth. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause with that rain.

00:07:13--> 00:07:48

The humankind to grow, just like trees grow. Just like trees grow, humankind will grow into what is known as the Mashaal or onto the plains of the mashup, where Allah wants to resurrect us. We don't know exactly where we've just been given a slight description. But wherever Allah has chosen for that land of mashup, we will all be resurrected, and we will grow like trees that is a hadith of a boy or the Allahu anhu. And it is mentioned very clearly, do you want to know every time Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention

00:07:50--> 00:08:15

of the reign of mercy in the Quran, He always makes mention of the fact that this is how we will be resurrected. When the reign of mercy falls down on the earth, the dead Earth, which was brown suddenly becomes green and he grows things go and Allah says karate can no show in another place. He says, Quranic cannot region La la la contenant.

00:08:17--> 00:08:59

In that way, you shall be resurrected. In the same way we will take out the dead, Allahu Akbar. So every time you see the rain, and you see something grow, you should think of resurrection, how we will also be resurrected. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we were taught through the lips of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that we will be growing to 18 meters, and we will be growing to a certain age, what is that age 33 years of age. So 18 meters and the peak of your age is 33. You will be at the age of 33, on condition that you died after puberty, those who died prior to puberty and they were children, their condition is different. They will be waiting for their parents and

00:08:59--> 00:09:33

they will be interceding on behalf of their parents by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah if Allah wills and permits, that they will be waiting, and this is why we say those who have lost their children either through stillbirth or through miscarriage or in infancy, those children by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be waiting in the app era and they will plead with Allah Subhana which Allah Allah, you did not give my mother the time to have me and to probably play with me and so on. So yeah, Allah I want my mother to come with me in two gentlemen, my parents should come with me in two gentlemen.

00:09:34--> 00:10:00

So this is the bleeding of the little child. And if this mother happened to be from amongst those who try to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and the parents bow patience for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala when they suffered the loss by the will of Allah that will be a means of their entry into gentlemen. It will be a means of their entry into gender. So this is a point of comfort. So we need to know everyone will be at the age of

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

33 and they will be 18 meters tall. And then Allah Subhana Allah will begin taking a stab or the reckoning will commence. May Allah make the day easy for us all.

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter

00:10:15--> 00:10:27

makes mention of the day, the day which Adam Allah is Salatu was Salam was created. It is also a narration in Sahih Muslim, again by Abu hurayrah

00:10:28--> 00:11:14

where he says, Friday is the best day that the sun has risen upon. Why it is the day that Adam was created. So that was from the lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us it is the day that Adam was created. And it is the day that he was granted entry into paradise. What does that mean? From that Hadith we understand that he was created, there is difference of opinion way exactly he was created was he already created in paradise or in another place in a place that Allah knows. So from this narration, it seems like he was created and when he was put into paradise from this narration because it says he would heal and Jana on that day he was granted entry into Jenna Wolfie

00:11:14--> 00:11:58

Amina, wanna taco Masato in love Yama, Yama, the Hadith continues to say and the Day of Resurrection will not happen except on a Friday. So it is the most powerful of the days of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now on a Friday, what time of the day was Adam alayhis salam created very interesting. One of the correct narrations makes mention of the fact that he was created in the last hour of the Friday, which would mean between NASA and Madrid. So this is why you know that there is an hour in on a Friday when any jar that is made is accepted. That is a correct narration authentic that there is one hour, some time during the day on a Friday, when if you are making a dua at that moment, then it

00:11:58--> 00:12:15

will definitely be accepted. So what is your bit we don't know the exact hour, and we don't know what it is. Some say it is when the amount goes up. Some say it is between the sitting of the Imam and some say it is this time and that time and so on your best bit. Repeat the two hour the whole day on a Friday.

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

Just repeat the de

00:12:19--> 00:12:42

la creme, Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, we normally try to think of something logical and this makes the most sense. So when it comes to the creation of Adam and Eve salatu salam, we see it was in the last hour. And this is why we are taught to make dua also at that particular time on a Friday. And it's very interesting that this is mentioned in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:43--> 00:13:04

Yesterday we spoke about how Hawa was created from the rib of Adam Allahu Salatu was Salam. There is a narration that makes mention of what happened. When she was created. Yes, she came in as a gift. He was very happy. He asked her, who are you? Question? Who are you? She says, I am a woman.

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

You're a woman. So

00:13:10--> 00:13:25

I am created as a pair for you. Yes, he was very lonely. So now he was happy. He says Lima hulak t Why will you create it she says Li Escuela de la for me to give you comfort company? solace Subhana Allah.

00:13:26--> 00:14:11

Now this is what is meant to be achieved by marriage. Up to today. When you marry what you meant to be getting from marriage is comfort. It is company companionship. Someone who you can spend the rest of your life with Mashallah, in harmony in peace, who will bring you lots of goodness. But what happens nowadays, they tell you, this is not the same man I knew when I was dating him. That's what he said. When I was dating him, he was such a lucky guy. Yes, this is what people say, No, do you know what was happening? When we were dating, shaitan was beautifying. Now that we are married shaitan goes away, then he comes back with a new task the same evening how to separate the two he

00:14:11--> 00:14:41

was achieving by making us commit sin before marriage. and thereafter when we got married, he now is trying to achieve by making us pipe. This is why when we follow what Allah says we won't go wrong. If you have married based on proper character and conduct and Dean and so on, that will remain intact and we will be able to recognize how shapen is coming into our lives. I normally tell people on campus with all due respect to those adversity.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

I do go to the university to get married. They say no, we went to study. So when you went to study what happened, you came back married, Mashallah. If you come back married, man, it can work and hamdulillah if you know how to do it, and if you know how, for example, to choose a spouse but

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

Sometimes the environment on campus, we need to know this is common for all. So for that reason we see someone on campus in that environment, we get on with them because there's so much in common. The minute we take them home after marriage, it's a totally different environment. She doesn't like it there and we don't like it in her environment. It no longer works, had you remained on campus all your life, your marriage would have blossomed. You probably have children who are professors as well May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us goodness and understanding. This is obviously just a point to try and make mention of how important it is to choose a spouse correctly wherever it is. We're not

00:15:39--> 00:16:18

trying to say this is wrong or that's wrong. If we do it the wrong way. It's wrong. If we do it with Allah in mind, it's correct inshallah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this, and we know that Hawa alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was created from the rib of Adam and I did make mention and I repeat, and I stress, that is not an insult to women. It not at all. If that was an insult to women, it is a bigger insult. It would have been a bigger insult for the fact that men was created from desks. If you were to ask me what is better a robot desk, we will probably say rip because you can't eat just Mashallah. So my beloved brothers and sisters, let's understand this. And let us understand

00:16:18--> 00:16:31

and realize No need to be apologetic, no need to say that we have been degraded by the prophets of Allah salam o by Allah no ways. No, it is an honor. And that honor shall remain in tact up to the day of Tiana.

00:16:32--> 00:17:04

Then Allah subhanahu wa Jalla speaks also about the beliefs and we made mention of the point where the police was instructed with the angels to Prostrate to Adam alayhis salam wa sallam, and you recall what he says? He says, No, I won't. Not me, I'm better than him. So whose sin was it? It was the first sin being committed against Allah subhanho wa Taala that sin was committed by shavon. So he became known as the accussed. And the one who was thrown out by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

Listen to what Allah says.

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

What is

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

when we instructed the angels to Prostrate to Adam, they all did Besides, when we when we instructed the angels to Prostrate to Adam, they all did besides at least he refused. Above. That means he refused flat.

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

For Khulna. Yeah, demo in

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

Lackawanna

00:17:39--> 00:18:06

region Akuma, Amina, nutty fetish. So we said, Oh, Adam, look at this enemy of yours, he is an enemy of yours. You better know from now that he's an enemy of yours. Make sure that he doesn't work his plan against you to remove you from this paradise in the goodness you are in. Now, just bear this in mind because we mentioned it yesterday. Today, I want to derive a different lesson from the same verse.

00:18:07--> 00:18:44

So now he believes what did he do? He looks at Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he's very angry because Allah kicked him out of paradise. Allah kicked him out of Paradise as a result. So he was no longer there. But now what happened is, he says to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that Oh Allah, because of what you've done. Now, I'm going to show you that this mankind, I'm going to lead him astray. And I'm going to come to him from all sides from the left from the right from the front, from the back from the bottom, but he did not make mention of the top. He didn't make mention of the top. Why?

00:18:47--> 00:19:27

He believes he wants to he will never ever come by as we know he's coming. If we had to know he is coming, we would run away. If you know a thief is coming, you would go but if you don't know the thief is coming. He's got to come quietly when you're looking that way it comes from this side. When you're looking this way he comes from that side. When you're looking there, he comes from there and so on, and he comes in a disguise. And at the top you find Allah subhanho wa Taala protection always. And Allah subhanho wa Taala grants us protection at all times. And if we are to raise our hands to the owner of entire universe to protect us from the devil, then he will never ever be able

00:19:27--> 00:19:35

to harm us. He will not. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says the sublease. He started blaming Adam alayhis salam.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

He started blaming Adam to say because of you, I've been removed. Now think for a moment was that the reason why he was removed? Was he removed because of Adam now it was his sin that made him cast. Now let's draw a lesson for our lives here. When we have a problem in our lives, when we have difficulty, we blame others sometimes when we are the root cause

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

When we have done something wrong, and sometimes we have a problem, whether it's at work, whether it is internationally the wars that are going on, whether it is

00:20:08--> 00:20:50

nationally, whether it is at the in the home or at work wherever it is, we do not address the root cause. So we never, ever solve the problem. Look at the bush, he did not want to tackle the root cause what kicked him out of gentlemen was not Adam, it was his sin, his own sin. So instead of saying Yama, I'm sorry, I sinned, and I was wrong. And now you've kicked me out because I was wrong. So I blamed myself, he decided to ignore the root cause and to go to blame Adam, who was innocent of that, what was at the money salams crime, nothing. Today, if we look at the issue of terrorism across the globe, everybody says the Muslims are terrorists, these people are this, nobody went to

00:20:50--> 00:20:57

look at the root cause How did it start? Where did it go? What oppression began? What resulted

00:20:58--> 00:21:26

in this result that we are seeing today, what is it let us address the root cause nobody wants to look at that everybody wants to say these people are this and these people are that, that having been said Islam does not preach terrorism at all, not at all. And I think that is quite clear to all of us. We promote harmony, we promote peace, we promote dignity, we promote respect, we promote security, we promote peace in every single way. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us peace across the globe.

00:21:27--> 00:22:03

But when you get a criminal coming to create havoc, and then they blame you, it only reminds you of at least the devil who did refuse to prostrate. And then he started blaming Adam alayhi salatu salam. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a deep understanding and to make us look at the root causes of the problem we have, whether it's in our homes, whether it's in our businesses, or social level, whatever other level, may Allah subhanahu wa taala solve our problems for us. Then you have Allah subhanho wa Taala, raising the point that he believes went to other money, Solomon, he says, Oh God, I shadow.

00:22:06--> 00:22:21

Allah, I want to show you this tree here. There are two things you will achieve from it. One is you will have life forever, which means health and life, you're going to live forever. And two is you'll have lots of ownership. You'll own a lot.

00:22:22--> 00:22:46

So other money is Salatu was Salam. One might ask how did the police get this message to him when he believes was already kicked out of gentlemen? It's a very, very interesting question. He was kicked out of gentlemen, how did he communicate? So now we go back to another verse of the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in who we are, who our kabhi know whom in high school

00:22:49--> 00:23:04

he and his own army, they see you from a position that you do not see them. They have this sort of remote control what we know today is Bluetooth effects Wi Fi, they call it wireless.

00:23:05--> 00:23:45

Love. So the same way we have this wireless and Bluetooth it's easily understood. Your connection is not here but you connected Where is it? It's in a How did it get here? Well, through remote control is something between here and there that I don't understand. You don't understand maybe a few you know, foodies understand that only Allah knows. So at least knew how he got the message. From outside gentlemen, he got the message into Jana. How he did that? He knows, Allah warned us and Allah said, watch out, be careful. Didn't we say moments ago, he won't come to you direct and showing me please, and I want to do this to you. He won't come that way. Secondly, it is reported

00:23:45--> 00:24:18

that there was a serpent serpent from the army of police that was in there, and he came hiding. He was hiding in the throat or in the neck or inside the serpent. Then he came and then he spoke. Now one of these two, Allah Subhana which Allah knows best, exactly which one it is, but what we do know as a conclusion is that he came in secret, and he came without coming out. full force to Adam alayhis salam, apparently he didn't appear. He just came in a way that he was not seen properly in disguise and so on.

00:24:19--> 00:24:55

So he told Adam alayhis salam, these two things you will achieve, what happens to us? When we are sick, we first go to the doctor, Mashallah Dr. Mashallah we make dua to Allah, we say Allah to me, that we go to the doctor, and then we get our medication and we start having it a month passes. We're not getting better two months past we're not getting better. Now what happens the same shape and comes back and he says, Hell, I don't know. Can I shadow till Monday? He's telling you the same thing. Can I show you a different way? I want to show you there's another way you can get your health back. Let's go to the witch doctor. Let's go to the Nanga. Let's go to the fortune teller.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Let's go to some one who calls himself a big Mawlana who can tell you

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

exactly who didn't magically finish what happened, we fall into the same trap for what for health and life.

00:25:09--> 00:25:50

Look at the exact trap that is used by the same police against us who are the law of Adam alayhis salam, we came after him and he's using the same trap. The moral of what is being said is, whenever we are sick, we pray to Allah very strong prayers. We can ask others to pray for us. There's no problem. We can visit the doctor, we can get medication, but we will not do anything that displeases Allah in order to achieve good health. Because come what may we have to die with it today or tomorrow, and we are failing our test if we've done something that displeases Allah subhanho wa Taala. So anything that is disallowed, we are far away from that. And we need to be far away from

00:25:50--> 00:26:32

that. That is what we learn. Another point that is learned, sometimes our business is failing, we have a loss, then it burns down, then we happen to grow it up again. And then a robber comes and then we happen to do something and the taxman comes and we just failing one after the other. What do we say, we are not satisfied, we will go from one man to another, I think I'm suffering bad luck here. So what should you do, he tells you, you, you need to take three bones, and you need to put them in a certain Mercedes Benz sign. And then you need to take three lemons and put one in each compartment of that Mercedes Benz sign. And then the lemon needs to not weigh more than 80 grams.

00:26:32--> 00:26:39

And then you need to squeeze each lemon with five drops coming out of the lemon. And then you need to take that juice together and take a little bit of saffron.

00:26:41--> 00:26:54

By hearing this already, we need to know that that is a belief. What is it? Let me tell you when you seek and someone says cut five lemons, go and get 10 roses. What is happening? Let me explain. It's very important for us to explain

00:26:56--> 00:27:34

it Lisa is laughing at us and laughing at Allah subhanho wa Taala that's all he's doing. He says, look, Didn't I warn you that I'm going to lead these people to worship me when you tell them pray when you are sick and go and seek proper medication when you are sick and do that that you are allowed to do when you are sick? You watch? They're not gonna listen to you. I'll tell them cut at lemons, they'll go and cut them. I'll tell them go slow. I heard one men tell a certain woman that someone has done magic on you. And it is someone from your own family. So it broke the whole family to pieces. How do they know the gibreel come to them? If jabril didn't come to them, then he

00:27:34--> 00:27:47

believes came to them. Allahu Akbar. And when he believes comes, he pretends he's a Muslim. He tells you I'm a genie. I'm a clean Genie. I'm a Muslim. I must a hobby. I know the Prophet. He definitely knows everything.

00:27:48--> 00:28:08

As we said here, let's learn the lesson from this when he believes comes he comes in disguise. So those who think they control a gene, if that gene tells you it's a Muslim, it's not a Muslim, because in the Sharia of the gym, they are not allowed to come close to you as mankind. Yeah, Mashallah Genie Cadiz.

00:28:11--> 00:28:18

Allah says, oh, Genie, you've made enough fools out of these mankind, enough of them. And in Surah Jin, go and read it. Allah says,

00:28:32--> 00:29:15

there are so many men from mankind, who seek protection and goodness and cure from gene kind, but it only increases them in becoming more and more astray, and in greater misfortune and in more difficulty. That's what Serato gene tells us. So are we allowed to seek the assistance of gene? The answer is no. And this lesson is for those who claim to be owning gene and to be having Jean, believe me, if he believes could lie to Adam alayhis salam, for him to lie to us is far more easy. Because Adam alehissalaam knew him, he saw him, he recognized him, he knew everything. And still he was gone with us, we haven't even seen him. So let us not be fooled, there is no quick fix. Like

00:29:15--> 00:29:52

when a person doesn't have wealth. He can either work very, very hard and have a salary every day. He's earning a little bit and slowly but surely, he becomes rich. That is the difficult way, but it is the permissible way and you're passing your test. Or he can choose to go and steal at night and go into Rob and go and take this and that and go and engage in armed robbery. He will have a lot of wealth but his life will be misery. He will live in constant fear of being caught and so on. What's the point but he became rich, and he stole from so many people. And then suddenly when that pyramid scheme crashes, everything comes to a halt. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all understand.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

The same way with health. When we are sick, you pray and you continue and you try the permissible means and you try

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

From the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and thereafter the cure will come to you slowly but surely. But if you want a quick fix, you can go to the witch doctors and the others who will fix you overnight. But what did they do? They use the police who's laughing at you laughing at Allah subhana wa Jalla and saying Allah, Allah can make fools of all these people. So we need to know we need to understand there is great detail. I don't have the time to go into exactly how it works, but it's quite simple. The spirits that we have with us, they are called spirits by the local African traditionalists, but we call them the Khurana Corinne. Every person has

00:30:39--> 00:31:19

an angel and they have a devil, a genie, the angel is ordering you to do good. The rain is ordering you to do bad and you are the soul who allows one of the two to win. If you allow the good force to win, you become a good person, you allow the bad force to win, you become a bad person. When a person dies, his soul goes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala, never to return. And his body decomposes into the earth unless Allah subhanho wa Taala wounds such as the bodies of the prophets, Allah says in the law, haram Allah, Allah said that Allah subhanho wa Taala has prohibited the earth from eating the bodies of the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So with those exceptions, the rest

00:31:19--> 00:31:56

of us, the body actually will decompose back into the earth. And what happens to the devil? What happens to the angel, it gets given a different task by Allah subhanho wa Taala, and it's gone. And the devil, what happens to you? It roams around way, a lot of them roaming the graveyard. A lot of them come back pretending to us that the souls have come back. So some people believe a the soul came back. And you know, this day the souls come back, no soul comes back, the soul goes to barossa the soul goes to a different place altogether. It is this spirit, or should I say this arene that comes back. It tackles. It plays games, it does this, it knows history, it knows you better than

00:31:56--> 00:32:32

yourself, because it was with you since the time you were born. So it knows exactly what happened. Now what does it do? It starts playing a game, people start beckoning the spirits in order to begin the spirit, you need to do something silly, very silly, you need to cut at lemons, or you need to do something. Sometimes people instruct you to murder, sometimes they ask you to bring a tongue of a human being sometimes they asked you to cut it down. Sometimes they ask you to do any form of silly items, which do not make sense at all. Then you you get the strings and you start you can talk to your great grandfather, and he'll talk to you in the voice you remember Allahu Akbar. But that is

00:32:32--> 00:33:07

all a joke. And it is all unacceptable. It is possible, it can be done in the same way a robbery can happen. It is possible to engage in robbery but the sin of it, it is sinful and it is not permissible. The same applies. This type of behavior is possible, but it is disallowed. And this is what we learn from the beliefs. At least from the beginning, he promised I'm going to come to them how remote control I'm going to come to them in a way that I will disguise myself even the good from amongst them will not know the difference. So Allah says in a baddie de Sala

00:33:11--> 00:33:21

my worshippers who are going to worship Me, Allah says over them, you will have no power, no authority. Now lawmakers from the true worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:33:23--> 00:33:25

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about

00:33:26--> 00:33:59

the issue of Adam and Eve Salatu was Salam sin, Allah says fantasea wallum nije de la who Asma Adam alayhis salam for God. We found that he had no firm intention of singing, he did not have a firm intention of selling. He was not resolute in singing, as we mentioned yesterday, so people begin to ask. Remember, we're drawing lessons. People ask, she tell us? Why did Adam alayhis salam commit the sin? Why? What is it? Why did he commit the sin? Come on?

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

You know, what's the answer to that? Well, look, he was not resolute in committing that. He made a mistake. What about you?

00:34:09--> 00:34:50

Why are you committing sin? Allahu Akbar. That's a better question. So look at how Chopin comes to us and makes us engrossed in why someone else sing. And in the process we sent him he was not resolute in his sin. We plan the sin, we calculate the sin, we are intentionally committing the sin, we engage in the sin and we happy about it after that, and we plan it again and we want to commit it again. And then we say But why did Adam sin? Look again how shamans plot comes back to us. So it's important. Look at yourself. tubuh limani chavela who is the NASS? That's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give good news of Paradise to the one whose own weaknesses keeps him or

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

her occupied from looking at the weaknesses of others. We want to look at that man. This one that one, you know, one day there was a question that someone asked me and says

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

What is the ruling of an Imam who is the Imam of the masjid? who enters the mosquito the left foot?

00:35:08--> 00:35:43

So I asked one of the Messiah that look, what is it, he says right back to them to say, keep that Imam. He's a very good Imam and he must be given an increase in his salary and so on. And I looked and I said, But why? He says, You know what, you don't have much experience, I will tell you, these people must have been looking for something wrong with that amount to kick him out. They found absolutely nothing. The only thing was he entered the machine with a left foot. So they said what's the ruling of any man with the left foot and they wanted you to say kick him out, but instead give them the opposite luck but if that was the only thing they could find, he must be a top Imam Allah.

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala grant this recognition and understanding and May He give us the ability to look into what people are saying, sometimes we are interested in the sins of others not realizing they are heavenly people, and we are people who are far back and we are sinful.

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

So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of something also very important that occurred, and we did not make mention of this.

00:36:08--> 00:36:26

There was a time when Adam alayhis salam was created Allah subhanho wa Taala from his back removed all his progeny up to the day of the AMA, including every single one of us and showed it to Adam says, Yeah, Adam, this is going to be your progeny. You will be succeeding one after the other. He was shocked.

00:36:28--> 00:36:38

So Allah subhanho wa Taala asked everybody this question, it was a question. This question is made mention of in the Quran. Listen to the first one is

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

Benny Adam mo hoody him

00:36:47--> 00:36:56

to see him LS to be loved. Come on, oh, Bella shahina Taku

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

otaku in

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

Aqaba

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

Zulu. Welcome

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

back at him. FM economy, Masha Allah.

00:37:20--> 00:37:45

Allah says And remember, when alert took from the children of Adam, from the back, Allah took out all the children of Adam, and brought them forth and asked them a question. Am I not the one who created you? And they all answered, Yes, indeed it is. You allow us to build a big human mind, not Europe. And they said, Bella, yes, indeed you are. So Allah says, Do not come on the day of the AMA.

00:37:46--> 00:38:25

And say, we have forgotten about our covenant that we took with you and this question, tell me how many of us remember this? Not one, not one. So Allah says no problem, we will keep on sending you reminders of this. So that is why we have the Quran. And that is why in the Quran, we have this verse, and that is why we believe that that happened. And the very next verse, Allah says, and I don't want any one of you to come and say, our forefathers, were associating partners with you, Oh ALLAH and we have no sin, we only follow them. Allah says there is no excuse. Each one of you is responsible for your own deeds. And you have all taken this covenant with me, you need to question

00:38:25--> 00:38:46

what your forefathers have done, if they have done what was right and hamdulillah if they have done what was wrong, you need to delete it, you need to stop it, you need to change it, you need to do something about it. Because remember, when you go to Allah, you will be asked a question individually mermin coming in enlasa, you can limo lady Sabina, whoever you know who told you man,

00:38:48--> 00:39:23

none of you are such except that Allah will speak to every single one of you directly without a translator between the two of you nothing. And he will ask you what you did. And he will want the answer. So that he said is not going to be taken by angels it will be taken by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah prepare a response for him. And that response always be on the safe side. May Allah subhanahu wa Jalla grant that to us. So when that happened, are the mother is salatu salam, he looked at these faces, and they were lit. And he seen one shiny face. And he says, Who is this?

00:39:24--> 00:39:57

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that is a man from one of the later nations towards the end of time, he will come up his name is David, may peace be upon him. So Adam alayhis salam out of curiosity is asking Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, what life did you give him? For me? You told me you're going to give me 1000 years he was told already. So what life did you give him? So Allah subhanho wa Taala says we gave him 60 years. 16 years that's very little.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Now look at the love

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

between the two. One is the first human being, and this is part of his progeny. And this is why parents can sometimes sacrifice their lives in order to make the lives of their children. And this is why whenever you ask a man, why are you learning so much? He says, No, I'm just preparing everything for my children. All this I'm doing this for my children.

00:40:20--> 00:40:42

That's a common answer. So Adam, Allah is salatu wa salam asks, he says, Can you not increase him? 40 years. So Allah says, we can take it from your life give him so from 1000 we can cut down 40 and give him so he'll become 100 so Allah subhanho wa Taala got confirmation from Adam. He says, Okay, give him 40 years from mining, amazing.

00:40:43--> 00:41:00

The Dalai Lama for 100 years Subhan Allah and Adam alayhis salam, I'm just fast forwarding, the day that he 960 years we're finishing in the angels of death came we'll get to that story, inshallah. He says, hang on, there's still another 40 years

00:41:02--> 00:41:11

is still another 40 years. And he they said no, don't you remember that you gave this 40 years to the award? He says, No, I don't remember.

00:41:12--> 00:41:54

He forgot. So men forgets that's a hadith. The Prophet salallahu Salam says this in an authentic ideal that he forgot. So men forgets. And according to some versions of the meaning of the term in some, some versions of the Arabic language say that incense Soumya incense and Leanna Hansa, that man was called insane because it is from mission which means to forget and is forgetful. Adam alayhis salam forgot he forgot two things. What else did he forget? He forgot right at the beginning when Allah told him Don't eat from this tree. Remember yesterday we said he forgot today we repeated the same verse for nesea. While I'm Nikita who asmin. He forgot, and we didn't find him resolute in

00:41:54--> 00:42:18

committing sin, but rather it was out of forgetfulness. So he forgot why because he believes the way he says things. Sometimes you forget, he comes to you first time directly to say, look, Allah prohibited this, but this is why he prohibited if you say No, that doesn't work with me. So he comes again in another way. And he comes in a third way until he succeeds, and whoever wins over him gets paradise. This is why

00:42:19--> 00:42:54

when Adam alayhis salam was sent to the earth, He makes it to our to Allah he talks to Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah didn't you create me with your own hands? He says Yes, yeah Allah didn't You honor me as the first he says Yes, yeah, Allah didn't you instruct the angels to prostrate to me says Yes, yeah, Allah didn't this he believes not prostrate to me. He says yes. Yeah, Allah. Didn't you decree that I was going to do this? It says yes. So yeah, Allah, if I pray to you, and I obey your commands. Will you grant me Jenna? Allah says, Yes, I will. Subhana Allah. So this is for us. If we pray to Allah and we seek forgiveness, where are we going back to Jenna

00:42:54--> 00:42:57

Allahu Akbar. This is the message. This is why we are here.

00:42:59--> 00:43:14

May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, these are some powerful, powerful lessons that we learn from the story of Adam and his salatu salam, then we have a very interesting point again, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in many places in the Quran,

00:43:15--> 00:43:56

that we instructed Adam and Eve, meaning Huwa May peace be upon them. We told them go to the earth. In fact, we addressed Adam and he believes as well, we said, Now go go to the earth, so at least was allowed entry onto the earth. At one stage he was prohibited from heaven. and thereafter he was allowed entry onto the earth. And he was told go there, go and do out there. So he came down at the money salon came down. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, told Adam alayhis salam, I will continue sending you guidance, and your progeny and offspring guidance, whoever follows the guidance, they won't go astray and they won't be unfortunate Subhana Allah, so up to today, for many

00:44:01--> 00:44:10

whoever's going to follow my guidance, I'm not going to leave you alone. I'm going to send you guidance, whoever follows the guidance, they will not be led astray, nor will they be unfortunate.

00:44:12--> 00:44:52

So now what happens with us, we need to know Allah since Allah says in the Quran, is why the Quran is there. The Quran is powerful. It is the guidance for us as Allah promised, and he sent this book and he sent so many books before the Quran. If we are to follow the Quran, we will never ever be misguided nor will we be unfortunate. And this is why those who lack contentment it's because they have drifted far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the time to come back to Allah. It is the time to come back. Everyone is searching and hunting for contentment. You have people who are atheistic people who are agnostic, people who have different beliefs, people who think that this is

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

the life and that's it. We got to make the most of it, but they're not happy. There is something missing because they don't have belief. They think we are just

00:45:00--> 00:45:30

ready to die and we're going to write in that say, Allah says no, there is a beginning you need belief. And that is what will make you a person who is enjoying contentment. Man is created such that without spirituality, he cannot enjoy this life of his. So we need this spirituality and we need this belief. It's important for us to know this. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has warned us and this is why Adam Allah is salatu salam was sent to the earth and he was given this as a message and on top of that he was told a woman

00:45:32--> 00:45:45

in Allahumma a Chateau banca wanna shoot Oh malkia mattina Kala Bielema Chavo Johnnie Walker Dooku vasila

00:45:48--> 00:45:51

una fantasy de waka

00:45:56--> 00:46:22

Allah says whoever turns away from my reminders that I keep sending them, they will be having a life which is very narrow, very full of difficulty, lack of contentment been can that which is it does not have any form of joy in it. It is completely shallow and narrow, full of difficulty and problem, lack of contentment and so on. And when we resurrect him on the day of piano, he will be blind.

00:46:23--> 00:46:38

So he will say, Oh Allah, how did you resurrect me blind when I could see whilst I was alive on the earth, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will say, we will tell him, didn't we send you reminders and you turned a blind eye against those reminders. So today we've resurrected you blind.

00:46:40--> 00:46:52

You turned away from us. So today you will be forgotten as well. May Allah not make us from amongst those. Now if we look at other money, salam, he came down onto the earth, he was sent to the earth. There is a question, Where did he land?

00:46:54--> 00:47:00

He was he wasn't just flown so that suddenly he landed meaning he dropped but Allah placed him on the earth.

00:47:02--> 00:47:09

This we find in the narration of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where he says that Adam alayhis salam Nasrallah philhealth

00:47:11--> 00:47:18

he came down in what is known as the indo Pak sub continent, precisely, Sri Lanka.

00:47:19--> 00:47:23

There is a mount there known as Adam speak.

00:47:24--> 00:47:50

If you go there, you will find it green and beautiful, as though it is not from this earth. But it is I'm not trying to imply anything. But I'm just saying it is so beautiful, maybe because the sun lankans have kept it that way. But it's a beautiful place. It is it is said that there is a possibility that that is the place. We don't know for certain that that spot is the place but roughly Then, what about Hawa? Where did she come down

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

in Jeddah?

00:47:53--> 00:48:18

Where is Judah? Judah is in the Arabian Peninsula. In what we know today is Saudi Arabia. And what is the meaning of Judah agenda for Judah? It means the grandmother, it is named after her. So Hannah. Now what happened? They started looking for each other. I remember meaning I can imagine. I'm just saying for myself, I can imagine them thinking I remember there was someone you know, we had Hawaii or Where is she? Let's start looking. And he started looking. So Hannah.

00:48:20--> 00:48:40

If you picture if you can imagine. And Adam and Sam began to walk, and he started walking towards where the sun was setting, he started walking towards the west. And even Hawaii has salatu salam as a female, she didn't walk too much. But she also tried to look for Adam alayhis salam No, that does not mean that women are not interested. No, not at all. Not at all.

00:48:42--> 00:49:06

And according to what some of the historians have to say, they met in Africa. And this is why we're the white pillar is the historians have made mention of I haven't found it in the correct narration authentic narration. But they say that that we're out of here is where we actually gather. That is where the two met, Allahu Allah, Allah knows best. And this shows us Subhana Allah that men,

00:49:08--> 00:49:37

you know, when we are separated from our spouses, it should hurt us. It should make us want to get back, we should do anything to solve the matter. This is what it is. I think that is a lesson that is drawn here. If we want to learn something from Adam alayhis salam, he didn't just wait for another woman to come along. No, he didn't. He knew that I have a wife. Let me make an effort. And do you know he walked half the globe imagine? And he got to her, Allahu Akbar.

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

Allahu Akbar. Imagine what must have been. I don't know. It's not made mention of integrations, but it is no harm in thinking, what must have been the emotions when the two saw each other. They must have thought I don't know but I'm just imagining Subhana Allah imagine after what effort how many of us are prepared to solve our marriage.

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

problems by making even 1 million of that effort. It's a lesson today a small thing we flick the marriage of small thing flicked off, go for someone else. small thing it didn't work. Why? For what may Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, maybe you can understand that we have a lot more to say inshallah we'll leave it for tomorrow until we meet again. Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, Masha Allah, Allah Allah
