And the Quran was revealed in a certain order. It's called the order of revelation. first surah was which surah?

00:00:09--> 00:00:41

Which surah? Al Allah, right ACARA and so on. They were shorter suitors in Makkah and whatever. So it's interesting to know the Quran in that particular order, especially for those who are not Muslim or those who are weak. At times, if you start off that way, it might answer questions that you may have had. Because when the Quran was revealed, the disbelievers at the time who mostly accepted Islam after a certain time, they knew it for that order. May Allah grant us goodness.

00:00:43--> 00:00:44

So

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

why is it so important for us?

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

Why is it so important for us to send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

When Allah chooses, Allah chooses something and when you acknowledge the favor that Allah has bestowed upon another, you have acknowledged Allah.

00:01:15--> 00:01:29

They see in Al Hassan, Khalil Hassan Atka. Mata Coronado hottub, that is a Hadith. It's a statement of the Prophet jealousy will eat away at your good deeds in the same way that fire would consume a dry log.

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

Why does jealousy consume your good deeds? Say for example, someone suddenly became a millionaire.

00:01:39--> 00:02:16

I'm giving you a worldly example. Right? Let's say he earned his money through Halal means I'm not going to talk about haram means right? Halal means you became a millionaire. What do people say? People fall into a few categories. Some people won't know. Okay. Other people will say wow, mashallah, you did so well. Alhamdulillah May Allah bless you, Allah grant you goodness, and deep down they'll say May Allah give me too I also need a million right? Is that a bad thing? It's not a bad thing. I'm happy for you. I think Allah for you and I say what like give me some of this you know, some of something similar to this so even more maybe pray there's no harm.

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

When it comes to money, we are quick to pray very fast money.

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

Mashallah.

00:02:27--> 00:02:41

And another category are those who will say he's doing drugs. I'm sure they're selling something funny. These people are evading tax these people others that's why they're making so much you know what this business of this is just a cover? Have you ever heard that?

00:02:42--> 00:03:03

Wallah he if you don't have pure evidence in that regard, you're a loser. That's why you're saying that you're a loser. How could you say that? Sir hamdulillah Masha Allah Tabata kala La Quwata illa Allah may Allah bless them with more Why do you want to become a person whom whenever you see someone having good and you have to think negative? No, they're doing something Hanky Panky.

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

Subhanallah no chance that's not true. That's not true.

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

Be happy.

00:03:10--> 00:03:23

When you are happy with what Allah has bestowed others, Allah was the one who gave him initially. So it's part of worshiping Allah to protect yourself from jealousy. I'm not jealous.

00:03:25--> 00:04:09

I'm not burning within I will acknowledge mashallah Allah has favored you. When the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was chosen by Allah, you were not chosen. I was not chosen to be a prophet or a messenger. But we were chosen to be followers. Followers of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever I hear his name, I must appreciate the favor of Allah upon you and I am appreciating it. Oh Allah, you made me a follower of the greatest of creation. You accepted me You allowed me to worship you're alone. And to follow this great messenger. The message that he brought is filled with goodness. The 10 commandments are amazing. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam not

00:04:09--> 00:04:21

only reconfirmed them, but the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam came with pure upright teachings. Your entire life is governed by rules and regulations that will liberate you in the true sense
