Swati, no song to me

00:05:37--> 00:06:09

hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah, Allahu Allah. So Allah Mohammed, why Allah Allah He was happy his main, my beloved mothers and sisters in Islam, we have just commenced Surah blockman. And the first letters that have started that particular surah show that the surah was revealed in Marketo mocha Rama. We have said in the past that besides the first two sutras of the poron, any sutras that start with separated letters, it is a sign that that's what I was revealed in Makkah. And you can close your eyes and say that and you will be correct.

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

So these separated letters, none know the meaning of besides Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:17--> 00:06:57

The surah has been named after a wise man who was according to the most correct opinion he was not a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he was a very wise man granted knowledge and wisdom by Allah subhanahu wa Tada. It is also reported that he was a man from Africa from a place known as a nova, which is part of Sudan, or the northern part of Africa. So Allah makes mention of him. And this is a beautiful scenario because his advice to his child at a time of great difficulty was so valuable that it was worth mentioning in the Quran being recited up to the end of time. And this is the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. From this we learned that whenever we say something good to our

00:06:57--> 00:07:35

children, or whenever we are to good words or words of advice, Allah is mentioning us and that is in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever mentions Allah, Allah mentions them. Whoever remembers Allah, Allah remembers them. Whoever speaks about Allah, Allah is speaking about them to a congregation far more superior than the congregation they are speaking to regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala. So right now, we hope and pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala is speaking about us to the angels. May Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings be upon us all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and protect us from all evil. So Allah says tilka Ayatollah Kitab al Hakim, these

00:07:35--> 00:07:54

are verses of the wise book. The book full of wisdom is the Quran. So although look man was known as Look man, Al Hakim, which means Look, man, the Wise Allah says this book is the one that is full of wisdom. For those who are trying to memorize the Quran. Sometimes they don't know. When they say Alif Lam Meem

00:07:55--> 00:08:24

chilka to kitabi and then they are not sure whether it's mobian or whatever else it is. How would they know it is Al Hakim? Once you know it's not look man, you must know look man was al Hakim. So you say tilka to Kitab al Hakim. It's just a way of learning and memorizing especially for those who struggle a little bit with that. So tilka to Kitab al Hakim, these are the verses of the book The wise, the Wise book, the Koran full of wisdom. Allah says Buddha, it is also full of guidance.

00:08:26--> 00:09:03

And it is full of mercy the machine but for those who are doers of good, so it is full of mercy for those who do good you read the Quran, you understand the Quran, you put it into practice, you listen to it, you understand its wordings and so on. All this will be a means of guidance and mercy for those who do good. Are you a person who does good? Well, if you do good you will end the benefit from the Quran. If you do not do good then you do not earn the benefit of the Quran. In fact, the Quran becomes a witness against you or AI. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. The reason why we say this is because when the Quran tells you to, for example, fulfill your Salah and you

00:09:03--> 00:09:39

don't fulfill your Salah, the Quran bears witness that the message was delivered to your ears, but you refused. Just this morning I was thinking about how Allah will ask me questions. And Allah will say, I sent you a message, what did you do about it? And I'm going to have to say this is what I did about it. And the same applies to every one of us. Allah is going to ask you, I kept from amongst you people who recited verses and reminded you and I made sure that the reminder got to you, how did you respond to it? My mothers and sisters Life is too short to waste in the disobedience of Allah not worth it at all. May Allah forgive us for our shortcomings and strengthen us. Yes, we are human

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

beings. But the whole test is to live these few seconds that we have left in this world in a positive way. This is why if you think about your dress code if you're not prepared to dress according to the way Allah subhanho wa Taala wills. what may happen My dear brothers and sisters is Allah is definitely going to ask you and it would not have been worth it. Because what

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

Answer would you give, you know, I was reading the verse this morning I was reading a verse of the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks in Surah to Zuma. He says, What's he called? levena cafaro Elijah Hon, Mr. Zuma had Elijah. He had a Ba ba ba, ba ba.

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

adhamiya.

00:10:36--> 00:11:10

Kelly met Alan caffine when the people will be driven to Hellfire in groups, and the gatekeepers of hellfire. When the doors shall be open for them, the gatekeepers will ask them a question. Didn't Allah send you messages from amongst you reciting his verses to you reminding you of the injunctions? And the people entering Johanna mole say, Yes, he did. What a lame answer. What a lame answer. Allahu Akbar. Allah says, but the punishment will overtake them. May Allah protect us, oh,

00:11:12--> 00:11:48

my brothers and sisters, Allah is telling us in that verse of pseudotumor, we have definitely sent everybody a reminder, nobody can say I did not have a reminder, you have a reminder, you've been reminded and allows me to ask you, what did you do about it? Did you choose the beauty of the dunya? Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, has kept it as a test and we need to understand it. In this world, we will never get what we want. Because in Paradise, we will get whatever we want. In this world, we will always be separated from our loved ones, because it is the nature of this world. And the nature of the next is that we will be united with them forever and ever. So do you want to just

00:11:48--> 00:12:20

lose the earth era by trying to achieve the temporary dunya in which you will still have to separate with your loved ones and you will still have to endure and go through health problems and never get whatever you want all the time and still lose the alpha. It's not worth it. May Allah protect us all. So Allah says this book is houda it means it's guidance. It is mercy for those who do good May we be from amongst them, protect yourselves from doing bad and you will achieve the true benefit of the Quran. Moments ago we heard a few verses

00:12:21--> 00:12:54

that are verses of goodness when you read this, you achieve that when you read that you achieve this. You know, we heard that a few moments ago. The truth is if we are if we are people who do not do good, we achieve nothing. We are hypocrites that's what it is hypocrite cannot achieve anything from the Quran. In fact they can achieve curse. Like the Quran says that the Hadith says Orinoco jetten laka Allah, Allah Allah Allah will be hidden kitabi acquirement whereby we'll be hearing through this Quran, Allah elevates certain people and through the same Quran he drops certain people

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

may Allah safeguard us and the other Hadith Allah says

00:12:59--> 00:13:28

this Quran shall bear witness for you or against you. Wow. When you have a witness for you, you're so happy in your court case. Imagine the person comes and says this person read me and started weeping Wow. Subhan Allah May Allah grant that to us not only weeping but we can we can then inshallah move towards the goodness there's no point in weeping and then creeping away Allahu Akbar, Allah protect us. So here Allah is saying, and Lavina Who are those who do good do you want to know?

00:13:31--> 00:14:11

This book is guidance, full of wisdom full of mercy for those who do good Who are those who do good. So Allah now explains he says alladhina up Muna Salah first quality they have to have those who establish their Salah if you have not established your Salah you are not from amongst those who do good you are trying perhaps the trial is not good enough. Come on, you can do better five Salah a few minutes Mashallah the cold water of the winter morning wakes you up Subhan Allah you know that face of yours when you put that cold water on it the way the capillaries Mashallah rush to your assistance beautifies your face even more than beauty sleep is the beauty awakening.

00:14:12--> 00:14:28

You know that you hear about beauty sleep, I need my beauty sleep. Yeah, we've heard that a lot. So panela, one hour, two hours, you need your beauty awakening. You get up for Salah in the early hours of the morning, that face has a glow on it that no one can see besides those who are spiritually inclined.

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

So Allah says, the goodness, the mercy the wisdom and all that is for those who establish their Salah, alladhina Yaki masala, where you tuna Zakah and those who give their charities there's a car those who are not miserly those who do not cling to the world today will law he You see, Mashallah. Mashallah, may Allah grant us all a comfortable life. May He assist those across the globe who are suffering, whether in Syria or Yemen or Burma, or anywhere else, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, wherever else even today, Marshall. I've heard that

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

They will be elections in Malaysia We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant them ease and goodness and peace and stability. But at the same time we when we witness people who have got a lot in terms of the dunya, there is just a question that we got to ask, is it benefiting them or harming them? A lot of the times it's harming them. So sometimes Allah keeps you under the line of wealth, so that you can constantly keep close to Allah. Because some people when they get more, they become arrogant. Some people when they get more Subhana Allah, they achieve, you know, they, they, their heads start swelling, there was the demise yesterday, the death early morning, should I say or

00:15:43--> 00:16:00

yesterday of the president of the two haramain. His name is Chef sala hellosign. He's visited us here and we know him personally, a very, very humble man. He was a minister in Saudi Arabia for many years. And thereafter, he, as soon as he could retire, he retired. And

00:16:01--> 00:16:38

he lived off a meager budget, he lived in a house that I visited, which was very, very simple. Subhan Allah, may Allah grant him Jenna And may Allah subhanho wa Taala, bless him, but a lesson I've learned from him, when the ministers used to visit him in his house, his house was more simple than mine and yours, believe me much more simple than mine and yours, you enter it a small little room, he makes you sit and he pulls on his own old man now. And what happened is, he would say, listen to this, he used to give his wealth out to charities, most of his wealth out to charities and he used to say, to the top sharks who visit him, you know, inshallah, we are building a house much

00:16:38--> 00:17:15

better than this one, with much better furniture than this inshallah. In the meantime, we stay in here. Do you know what he was talking about? paradise, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. We are building a house in Sharla. Much better than this one, with much better furniture than this. And he's This is a statement that came out of his mouth quite a few times. And people didn't really understand they thought maybe he's talking about that, you know, temporarily. He lived there all his life. And what a great man he was. He was in charge of, you know, appointing Imams and so on in the domain and what a beautiful man. So this is the lesson we learn. When we get a little bit we become arrogant, but

00:17:15--> 00:17:27

there are others whom the more they get, the more they're giving charity. He said, and this is documented that I don't need to live off more than X amount in the month. What am I going to do with more than that? And he used to give it out to charity.

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

We were to do that one wonders what

00:17:32--> 00:18:13

Okay, let's not finish the sentence. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and May He grant us all goodness. This is why when you have a lot in terms of the dunya thank Allah and ask yourself, Am I cleaning towards it? You know, you want more and more and more and more, until the day you die? And guess what the more you have and this is a this is a challenge. This is really a statement go and study the lives of those who have left millions and look at their children today. Go anyone 99% of them their children have had wars and feuds and fights and they hate each other or they've stopped talking to each other because of the wealth their parents have left go and study I this is an open

00:18:13--> 00:18:17

challenge go and check any community in the world go and have a peep.

00:18:18--> 00:18:29

So this is why we say 99% of them it's it's caused a big problem the best is to die simple. Look at Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the best of creation he died he left behind no not nothing.

00:18:31--> 00:19:04

If there was any goodness in leaving behind things, he would have left behind tons. Yes, there is a hadith which says it's best better to leave behind some wealth for your heirs and so on. But sometimes we amassed so much and in a way that we've forgotten a lot. When we amassed it, we really we ate interest we left our Salah because our business, we forgot our Joomla we did not dress properly because we thought we're gonna have the good deals from the people when we when we have you know, flinging our hair just like they do and so on. So now we want big, big business through these means, voila, he will lie We ask Allah has mercy. And we asked him to forgive us. But when we've

00:19:04--> 00:19:27

earned wealth through means of those, you know, through that type of means, what do we expect from Allah subhanho wa Taala? It's just a question we need to ask ourselves and remember, there is always room for Toba and is still valid then and repentance. This is why we have talks of this nature, not to Doom us, but to give us the hope to say look, I can repent, I can still turn but let it not be too late because one day when suddenly you have a huge

00:19:28--> 00:19:49

heart attack and you've gone flesh flesh have have a moment you know, then what happens? Too late. Imagine we have a huge heart attack and we say please can you give me my trouser? Imagine because I was wearing a miniskirt stuffer. Allah, Allah protect us. Allah safe goddess. Notice I didn't even talk of the scuff.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

But imagine suddenly you drop. This is why you know, I just want to tell you what goes through my head sometimes you know you pass through it going here going there when some people are

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

You know, we worry about ourselves, we suppose to worry about ourselves much more than anyone else. But sometimes when you're a scholar, when you've got to speak to people, you need to sort of think of examples, you know, in order to try and motivate, and perhaps spiritualize the situation. So sometimes you see a person who's really really not dressed appropriately and you try to think that how can I get a message across to this person? That what if you dropped dead right now in public with those high heels of yours that are probably take closer to heaven than anybody else? What happens Allahu Akbar. And you will try to you want to get a message across to them to say if you

00:20:33--> 00:21:10

were to drop dead here and now nobody's spelling Doom, but you need to understand it could happen. What are the chances of it even if it's a 1% chance it's too big a percentage for you to risk? May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us decency, at least May he keep us people who are of sound values, and you know, morality, and may forgive us look, we all have things to improve. It's not just the outward improvement while it my mothers and sisters are much more important than the outward is the inside. And that is hidden from the eye. Only those we interact with no, this is why when the folks you live with bear witness that you're a good person, you're definitely a good person. Let's

00:21:10--> 00:21:31

continue. So Allah says, Those who fulfill their Salah are the ones who do good, they will benefit from the Quran, those who give their soccer They are the ones who do good and they will benefit from the Quran. So learn to give you a wealth, learn to give, work out the percentage of Zakat, give it out and on top of that, give out charities. Don't be stingy. You know, don't be niggardly, a person who really does not give.

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

Learn to divorce yourself from the love of this world to which may come far more than the love of Allah.

00:21:41--> 00:21:46

That is dangerous. So learn to love Allah first and then love the rest and everything else.

00:21:48--> 00:22:01

So Allah says, There is another quality of those who do good. Listen to it. Well, whom will authority whom you know, and they are the ones who have faith with certainty in the hereafter.

00:22:03--> 00:22:17

That's another quality. Close your eyes for a moment and ask yourself, do I have faith with certainty in the hereafter that I'm going to meet Allah, and I'm answerable to him, and he's going to ask me everything.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

Do I have that faith?

00:22:22--> 00:22:58

If I do, how would I be able to engage in that which is bad? And if I ever engage in that which is bad, how would I be able to survive without repainting to Allah? Because if you splash your booklet with lots of repentance, you've got good news Mashallah, it will cover up the evil that you may have done in your life. So Allah says, the people who will benefit from the Quran are those who do good, those who do good, they do not miss a Salah. they fulfill it properly. And they give out charities, they they do not allow their hearts to be overtaken by the love of wealth. And number three,

00:22:59--> 00:23:24

they believe firmly with conviction in the life after death, the answer the ability to Allah. So then Allah says, Allah, Allahu de Moura been those are the ones who are rightly guided by Allah, they are upon guidance from their Lord. And those are the ones who are the successful. So now you and I can ask ourselves a question

00:23:25--> 00:23:30

Am I successful? Wow. So first person, we look at

00:23:31--> 00:24:09

one of the top rich shots in the world. Wow, that person successful. Take a look at this guy so successful. He's got businesses, he's got what he's got vehicles, he's got his private jets, he's got whatever landing strips and whatever. And the helicopters that the people are talking about of late and so on, Allahu Akbar, Allah protect us if that's what you think success is, you have not read the Quran, and the Quran has not helped you. So Allah says, you want to know what we say is the greatest success when you do not miss a Salah when you give out charities to the poor. And when you are fully convinced that you are going to meet with Allah and you have a life after death where you

00:24:09--> 00:24:15

are answerable for everything. Once you have those three qualities. Definitely you are successful.

00:24:16--> 00:24:53

So do you miss a prayer in the day? You're not successful? No success. You can have billions you're not successful. Do you? Are you stingy? Are you miserly? Do you cling towards your wealth or to your wealth in a way that you don't even give anything to other people, you don't share anything. You want everything for yourself? Your cupboards are full of clutter, so much clutter that if you had to shift today, perhaps you'd need 20 truckloads of items because the little warehouse at the back is more like a shop but it's not a shop. It's just got all your old antiques in a sentimental value. Forget that sentimental value, give it as a gift to somebody. They will probably make use of it.

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

clutter. Doesn't it sound so Indian

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

clutter. Open the cupboards Voila.

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

You see things from 1930? And granny says no, this thing can go from here. Granny, you will go Allahu Akbar. May Allah protect us.

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

May Allah protect us really We ask Allah to grant our parents and grandparents Jenna. And to make it easy for them, we might go before them. So if you can divorce the love of the clutter that you have from your heart, you are heading in the right direction. Go home today. Take it all out. Donate it.

00:25:26--> 00:25:42

Take it all out. I challenge you. Well, I you know, we want cupboards. Have you ever noticed something? You can build a brand new house with so many cupboards in the home? What happens after a while we need more carpets? It's effect. Why didn't we need another storeroom at the back? And another typical thing we need a freezer.

00:25:44--> 00:26:17

Allahu Akbar why clutter? That's what it is. We want to prepare for the five months in advance. Allahu Akbar. May Allah safeguard us and grant us goodness it's a reality. My mother's and sisters. It's a fact of life. Get rid of things you haven't used for a year, open your cupboards and take that wardrobe. Take those things out of your wardrobe. You know, sometimes we've got a dress that we've just keeping an ally it's a fact I've said it before I want to repeat it because it's something that women relate to. You've got a dress that fitted you when you were 19 you know, and you still got it and every time you look at it, and you think I'm gonna fit in there again

00:26:17--> 00:26:56

inshallah. inshallah and the way that inshallah goes, and you know that you three times the size, no problems at all, but you keep on looking at it, so Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and safeguard us and may He make us from those give it away to someone else who's 19 let them enjoy it and say that Auntie was imagined this shape here a long time ago. Subhana Allah, Allah He they they'll make do it for you. Perhaps you might shed something or too low a kebab? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us remember, in this world for as long as your healthy don't really be so bothered about how many inches I am and what how many this and that and every day we worship the scale and

00:26:56--> 00:27:31

Allahu Akbar, let's worship Allah. Let's worship Allah Allah azza wa jal sometimes, you know, he keeps us a little bit heavier so the wind don't blow us. But my brothers and sisters, what we need to realize and understand is that Allah has blessed us in 1,000,001 ways. We sometimes are too too clingy towards our own items that we've used years ago. Give your shoes away, give your clothes away, give your utensils away, give you a pots and pans away, make space for something new, give your gadgets away, a lot of people Mashallah they get a new mobile phone so the old one goes into the cupboard, then they get a new one, the old one goes into the cupboard, then they get a new one.

00:27:31--> 00:28:09

The old one goes into the cupboard, you open it, you can see five phones. What are you doing? I've got my photos in the Allahu Akbar. It's typical. I'm giving you reality. This is a fact. So now your photos, transfer them onto a hard drive or something else and Come on, give that phone to someone else who's going to use it. So now I had the latest one. I fear they might use the phone for since I'd rather leave it. Wow. Wow. Look at the excuses. Look at the excuses. My mothers and sisters. It's about time we gave away things we don't use declutter. See how beautiful you feel. Voila. He This is what Allah says is success. You want to be successful? Well you need to learn to share

00:28:09--> 00:28:42

things and give things you know you have food you have drink, whatever you have. inshallah, I've given you enough examples. It's been a beautiful moment for myself as well because I'm going to go home and inshallah empty out a lot by the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So my brothers and sisters, Allah says Allah Akbar, Allahu de Mira Bhima Yokohama, Mosley hoon. Those are the ones who are upon the guidance from the Arab and those are the ones who are truly successful. Then Allah says, Now this is speaking about music, according to the majority of them have a scene from amongst the Sahaba, the Sahaba of the Allah and whom have said that this verse, verse number six is

00:28:42--> 00:28:52

referring to music and musical instruments. So Allah says wamena nassima de la de Lille de la de la Hebei really mean, either who's Ooh la la la Hamada boo him

00:28:54--> 00:29:34

and of mankind is He who purchases idle talk and look at this noble Quran we're using in brackets it says I E, I m means that is music, singing etc. to mislead men from the path of Allah without knowledge and take it which means take the pot takes the path of Allah and the verses of the Quran, by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment in the hellfire. I've just read for you what it says here, because some people say, Oh, it's not music. The word moussaka which is now taken into the Arabic language did not exist at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it did not exist. So if someone says I want to see the prohibition of music with that word in the Quran,

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

you tell them you know what, you're not gonna get it. The reason is that word did not exist. moussaka is a term that really came later on it was it was taken, it was muster up meaning taken into the Arabic language, although it was foreign. But there is another narration where in Sahih al Bukhari the prophets of Salaam says a time will come when people will consider what is unlawful, as lawful, and he gave a list of things he started off by saying, Allah will Harris

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

Are Walmart as if here means adultery they will commit adultery calling it different names and saying well it's permissible because we're doing it like this. And secondly, I'll hairier meaning feminine clothing for males and vice versa. Although all Harry refers to silk, but the broader meaning of it is when people start wearing you know, the cross clothing, male and female and so on. And thirdly, Alma as if my as if is a clear clear word, which refers to musical instruments. So this is a hadith in Sahih, Al Bukhari and Muslim that the prophet SAW Selim speaks about the end of time, and how people will consider that which is lawful, that which is unlawful, as lawful. And he's given

00:30:41--> 00:31:21

a list these are the top three things. So if that is the case, that means it is prohibited. There is another verse also in pseudo SLR, where Allah speaks to the devil to shaitan. And Allah says West epzs MINUSTAH, at a minimum basaltic. You know, you may get hold of whoever you are able to get hold of through your voice, and the voice of the devil, clearly the mufa Syrian and the scholars of FC like I say, tafsir is not from my pocket or yours. But the scholars of Tafseer from aforetime, who have told us that it means the voice of the devil is music and musical instrument and all those evil lyrics that people hear. So that is salt, a shaytan, which means the voice of shaitan what else is

00:31:21--> 00:31:57

the voice of the devil? Now why Allah was telling the devil that is because the devil says I'm going to lead people astray. Allah says go and do what you want. And whoever follows you, they will definitely be penalized just like you will. So May Allah protect us. So my mothers and sisters, look at how this is not ironic. Allah speaks in this verse of wisdom, he speaks of success, then he tells us success is achieved by the following things and he speaks of three things, Salah czaka, and believe in the life after death. And then he says, watch out for music. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, did you hear that?

00:31:59--> 00:32:38

Allah says, The true successful are those who do, who established their Salah, give them a car, and they believe in the life after death, then he says, from amongst people are those who want to divert you through music and beat. So now you you know, you have this beat, somebody asked me on Thursday night about the drum and you know, I showed you how exactly it should be played and so on. But to be honest with you, if you look at the people who are involved in music heavily they are diverted from from these items, then they get diverted very easily and quickly. So this is why it's important for us to no substitute that music with the Quran, the beauty of the Quran, or even with beautiful

00:32:38--> 00:33:17

energy and a sheet which don't have music in them, that which has beautiful meaning that which is full of, you know, like poetry that has some form of calling towards Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, learn to give up things for the sake of Allah, it will be your ticket to paradise and to give up things for the sake of Allah, it will be your ticket to paradise, learn to give up things for the sake of Allah, it will be your ticket to paradise. So Allah says, Those people who hear this music and they want to sell it and buy it and make a business out of it and they want to lead people astray. They are making a mockery of the Quran. That's what Allah says.

00:33:18--> 00:33:51

Did you hear that? What did I say moments ago? Allah says this book has guidance for those who do good. You want to be into beat and music. You won't be able to achieve the guidance from this book. That's what Allah is saying. So he says what either truth la la I a tuna. When our verses are read to such a person, one law, Mr. Kabira. He turns away in pride, as if he heard not the verses. So you want to play a beat you want to do this they they quickly, but you want to read the verses of Allah, they turn away, why it doesn't affect them.

00:33:56--> 00:34:02

Allah says they turn away he turns away with pride in arrogance, as if he heard nothing.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

As if they were deafness in his ears.

00:34:09--> 00:34:44

Allah says so announced to him a painful torment, but she Bashir who be either in a limb, why because he doesn't want to listen to the Quran. He doesn't want to listen to our words. And those words will never ever be a word of words of guidance, because he's involved in something else. It's like a seesaw. The more you have one, the less you have of the other. One goes down, the other one goes up, one goes down, the other one goes up. So you've got more of music and everything in your system. You've got less of the Quran. You've got more of the Koran and the words of Allah and spiritual words. You've got less of music straight.

00:34:46--> 00:35:00

And after Allah warns us, look, everybody sided I can hear a pin drop so panela why because we're worried all of us. May Allah protect us. Like I said, declutter. First thing you can declutter is take those CDs of music.

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

From your vehicle and throw them away. And someone told me, You know, I just got something of Justin, I don't know who Justin is, but whatever. And you know what, it was so expensive. I bought it from the OCG shop, why are we learning words here? The Oh gee shop, I thought that was somebody's name.

00:35:17--> 00:35:19

So you expect me to throw it away?

00:35:21--> 00:35:29

Well, if you're gonna give it to someone else, you're gonna lead them astray. But what if I give it to a non Muslim, rather give the non Muslim as you know, an audio of the Quran.

00:35:31--> 00:35:37

Give them some audio of something, you throw it away there as a waste of wealth, money, break the thing and God may

00:35:38--> 00:36:08

Allah protect us, the lyrics are becoming dirty, the Christians and Jews are telling their followers not to listen to music of today because of the debt that's in it. The amount of filth, the immorality, the evil that it's calling you towards, and the way the people who are involved in it and the way they move their bodies and undress in order to just bounce to the rhythm. All this is known, and all the heavenly faiths have called towards the boycotting of this Islam is at the forefront,

00:36:11--> 00:36:15

to even practicing Christians and Jews, they will take a lesson home from what we've said today.

00:36:17--> 00:36:33

Then Allah says verse number eight, after he gives us this warning, look at the sequence of the Quran, how beautiful it is. He tells us one thing, then the next thing, then the third thing and now look what he says, in alladhina, amanu amilo song he had at home, Jen,

00:36:36--> 00:37:15

how Allah warned us in the previous verse of giving the news of a painful torment to the person who wants to keep listening to music, and who turns their ears away from the Quran and so on. And Allah says, Indeed, those who believe and do good deeds for them are gardens of delight in paradise. May Allah grant that to us. Now we can smile once again, this is the power of the Quran, when Allah gives you a huge warning. Immediately after that he gives you good news. He says, look, you can still turn they still away, there is paradise. My mothers and sisters, no matter what you've done, don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah, He loves you. That's why he has you here Subhana Allah,

00:37:15--> 00:37:22

that's why he has you listening in because he knows when this message gets to your ears, it will affect you. And if you do something about it positive,

00:37:23--> 00:37:27

you will learn paradise. Like I said, it may be your ticket

00:37:28--> 00:38:02

to paradise. Then Allah says Holly, Dina via such people will be dwelling in paradise forever. What Allah has done, the promise of Allah is indeed the truth. This is why Allah says those who believe in the life after death with conviction, they are the ones who are successful, and your losses, they will live in paradise forever. And the promise of Allah is indeed the truth. Wahoo al Aziz al Hakim, he is indeed the all mighty, the all wise.

00:38:03--> 00:38:12

He is mighty and wise, Allah is the owner of Might and the owner of wisdom. And he says, I promise you that what I've told you is definitely coming to happen.

00:38:14--> 00:38:27

Then Allah says, My mothers and sisters, these verse make verses make me cry. Every time I read them, every single time I read them, something happens to me. Verse number 10, and 11, especially verse number 11.

00:38:28--> 00:39:23

Listen to what Allah saying. He's showing how great he is, how powerful he is, and how weak everything besides him his, look what Allah says. He has created the heavens without any pillars that you see, and has set on the earth, mountains, lest it should shake with you. And he has scattered there in moving living creatures of all kinds. And we send down water or rain from the sky, and we cause plants of every goodly kind to grow there in. This is the creation of Allah. So show me that which those whom you are worshiping besides Allah have created, Nay, the oppresses the wrongdoers. Those who do not believe in the oneness of Allah are in plain error.

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

Allah makes mention of some of his creatures. Then he says, This is the creation of Allah show me what those besides Allah have created anything. In another verse, he says, lying flu, Baba, Allah,

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

Allah, they will not create a fly, even if they all get together to achieve that. They will never, this is the creation of Allah. Show me anything that those besides Allah have created. It's a challenge from Allah. Show me that's what Allah says. aroni

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

Imagine what type of a verse This is. Allah Himself is telling us all show me I want to see, did anyone ever create anything? Besides me?

00:40:13--> 00:40:21

Nothing. So Allah says, so why are you being deceived? Why are you being so deceived? I created you, I made everything from nothing.

00:40:23--> 00:40:52

Look at the question. So Allah says calaca some odd, he has created the heavens without any pillars that you see, there are two interpretations of this. One is that there are no pillars holding up the skies, and the other, which is a proper a better interpretation. There are pillars holding up the skies, but you cannot see them. So what are those pillars, evidence of those pillars, they may be pockets of air, but evidence of that is pressure is far higher, when you are lower,

00:40:53--> 00:41:31

or closer to the ground. Now, if you were to put, for example, a stack of books. Say for example, if you had a book that got weight or something, and you wanted to dry it and straighten its pages, so you put it right at the bottom of a stack of books, right? Where is the point with the highest pressure right at the bottom. And right at the top there is the least pressure because there's something is holding a book after book upon book upon book. So when you have a stack of a where the air has piled up so much, where is that which has the highest pressure, the lowest so we can actually breathe this air because the pressure in the atmosphere of the Earth is correct for us to

00:41:31--> 00:41:38

breathe. When you go higher. 50,000 feet above sea level. You cannot breathe the air because the pressure is so low.

00:41:39--> 00:42:11

Allahu Akbar, I hope we understand. So this is why some of them have a ceiling and say there are pockets of air that are holding up the skies. And when you fly in an aircraft, they tell you that there are pockets of a there's turbulence, clear, clear, clear skies, but they tell you turbulence because of the pockets of air and so on. What is all that about? So Allah that's Allah's mercy, and that's his system and style, we may or may not find out a little bit more scientifically about that. But Allah says, We have created the heavens without pillars that you can see because you cannot see the pillars.

00:42:13--> 00:42:41

And then Allah says we placed mountains, so that they hold down firm, the earth, it doesn't shake. So Allah has placed mountains, in strategic places and so on. May Allah protect us all. Then he speaks about the rain. And he speaks about how the plantation grows, and how everything grows by the mercy of Allah. Then he says, This is the creation of Allah. So show me that which those whom you are worshiping besides Allah have created anything, nothing.

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

Now I will just start off these verses of surah Luke of the of Luqman la Salatu was Salam or Luqman the wise.

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

Like we said, He's not a prophet of Allah, but a wise man.

00:42:54--> 00:43:21

I will start off the verses but next week, we will go through the advice that he's giving his son also powerful advice, that he's given his son so powerful that although he was not a prophet, Allah makes mention of his name. And all that he said to his son or parts of what he said to his son is made mention of here. So Allah says, well, Athena Luqman and Hickman And indeed We bestowed upon Lockman, wisdom, religious understanding, saying,

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

Give thanks to Allah.

00:43:25--> 00:44:07

We bestowed in wisdom saying, Give thanks to Allah so that he may thank Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever you've got something good education, anything else you know your good looks, your health, your wealth, your children, your whatever else you might have a nice home, some form of, you know, something great, you've got thank Allah. Allah has given it to you to to test you whether you are thankful or not. So a man and a Salaam says the same thing that Allah has blessed me with so much in order to test me, am I thankful? Or do I show in gratitude, so we need to also learn from that. So Allah says, whoever gives thanks, he gives thanks for the good of his own self. You give thanks. You

00:44:07--> 00:44:17

get to benefit from that thanks, gratitude to allow you to give things establish your Salah, give you a sucker and believe in the life after death, the first three primary items thereafter, everything else.

00:44:19--> 00:44:56

And whoever is unthankful ungrateful, then verily, Allah is independent, free of all means worthy of praise. Allah is worthy of praise anyway, analyze absolutely independent. Allah doesn't need myself or yourselves and Allah needs nobody. So if you are going to thank Allah, it's going to help you if you don't think Allah, Allah doesn't need that gratitude from you anyway. May Allah make us people who are grateful. Allah He my mothers and sisters, we've learned a lot this morning. I need to go back and reflect. Perhaps I will listen to this whole recording once again, and see where I can improve myself. And I'm sure every one of us can, and inshallah we hope and pray that you know, we

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

can be affected by the words of Allah because if we are not affected by

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

The words of Allah what is going to affect us? What is it that is going to help us? We ask Allah to bless us all or sallallahu wasallam albaraka Alana Vina Mohammed Subhana Allah Hamdi, Subhana Allah Mohammed kenisha to Allah Allah Allah and as the pharaoh kawana Tobu Lake
