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

Hey, James Miller Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam, ala Shafi, mousseline, syedna, Mohammed, Ali wasabia, Jermaine in Santa Monica work with a lawyer with regard to just like laughing thank you for joining us and night number 28 of the series Ramadan is Pinilla, he says tonight and then tomorrow would be, of course, the 29th night. And then we may if we're lucky, Allah subhanaw taala will bless us for the 30th day and 50 of night, you've not mean Subhanallah we are just two more nights left and two more days of fasting and las panatela. Except everything that we have done, especially in these last few nights, as many people have increased, and you know, exerted

00:00:33--> 00:01:07

themselves and Subhanallah Usually what happens is when you see when it comes to a conclusion, usually the massage that you find the hard times happen on the 27th night, and you already have a sense that Ramadan is coming to an end and it's almost the eat mode begins. And we should just not be premature. This is one of the big mistakes that we make is when we lose our focus after the 27th night, because we know that without a doubt that the 29th night one of the odd nights is a very, very big chance that it could also be liable to cover, we are still searching for it. And there is a probability even that the 28th ninth or the 30th night could be likely to cause any of these 10

00:01:07--> 00:01:42

nights could be that are related to each other. And even if even if they were to cover occurred already passed when these nights are used to make the other almost pantalla except that just the fact that we made the door or we've made the bed on the on the ninth of April. That means that it's rare, but it still hasn't cleared and it is through extra to other the law except from us. We see that when we bought our Himalayan Salah when he bought the Kaaba, he did the good deed and then afterwards he said Rob banana cobalamin in negative so we learned Allah now I need to make dua that you accepted as some of the Sahaba would say that if I knew Allah subhana wa Taala just accepted one

00:01:42--> 00:02:14

of my good deeds, and he will reward me for that, then I will sleep a happy man. And you know this youngest Muhammad said Why? And then he responded that he said that if Allah accepts one of your good deeds, and you get rewarded for it, then you know you're going to Jenna because Allah says he only accepts the good deeds from people that are good. And so for us, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that whatever we've done of good for others month of fasting of standing of reciting Quran of charity, whatever it might have been of good, Allah subhanaw taala accepted and multiply that when we see it on the day of karma, then it is far more than what we ever anticipated the reward will far

00:02:14--> 00:02:50

exceed our expectations, because that is how Allah subhanaw taala rewards. And so we should continue to focus. Remember, it is about consistency. And it's about how we in the month of the month is not over. So no for a high don't end up becoming prematurely into the eat mode, it will come. And so now it's about focused until the end until that moon decided we are going to continue working hard but in the law, you can continue without a seed of soil to milk. And as panela This is a recap. This is the last section of supermoon. We'll be concluding with the surah this evening. And so far, if we break the surah down, we've mentioned the how the surah begin speaking about Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:50--> 00:03:25

being all blistered and All Merciful, and that he controls all of creation. And he does this he exerts his influence in his control with kindness, that he has made the universe perfect that we ever we look in nature, in the heavens in the earth in deep in the oceans, we find that Allah subhana wa Taala has designed the creation perfectly and it's an imbalance an incomplete equilibrium. And then Allah Subhana Allah has put us on this earth and made the earth soft for us. He's made the heavens amenable to us that we are able to enjoy the boundaries of Allah. For that reason, there is a test a test that Allah will test us with life and with death. And then we will go

00:03:25--> 00:03:59

on to the next life. Well we will answer for how we spend our time on em. Awesome Hannah tala also in so many beautiful if mentioned, is not the one who created you based at knowing what you want to do or not. If it is constantly in our life, he is really aware of what's happening in our life, that he has provided us blessings all around us. Many times we don't appreciate we don't even acknowledge we are not aware of all the blessings Allah has given us only sometimes when a blessing is taken from us we realize, yeah, Allah from my whole life I've never ever given thanks for this one blessing, but now that it's gone, I feel it. And so Allah subhanaw taala reminds us how ungrateful

00:03:59--> 00:04:35

if you very, very few people are grateful to him and to his blessings. And he says in some of those beautiful eyes, that he is genuine lack of that he Rama is your army he is with you whenever you need him whenever these difficulty in your life are rough man is the for you. So why do you turn away from him and Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that He created us on this earth and he dispersed us and to him is the return and that there are two people those who who love walking upright in a way of his blessings and they try the best we try the best to be on the path of righteousness and in the are those who don't care. We just love for the day and completely in the hole in delusions and

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

what will be the destination someone walking, not looking and he walks in the road. We knows panela he will meet with an excellent and so surely kiama is coming. I was reminding us and so we need to we need to focus. Now the last few is Allah subhanaw taala was telling the ladies also let me see say to them cool, give them a message. Allah Spangler cesium. Cool our item in our Lakhani Allahumma Maya Ola Haman FME yujiro Kathy near me

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

I was very unique I am is an idea that you won't find anywhere else in the Quran Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh Mohammed Salah Salem say to them, if Allah should so well if it was the will of Allah, that he should like me that he should cause me to die You should like I like mechanism you mean destroy me, but it means if Allah should cause me to die if Allah should cause Mohammed, so awesome today. Well my Maya and those who are with me meaningful Sahaba with me, oh Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah should well as good with Allah should the Ramadan as for me yujiro caffeine I mean other than any man who would save the kuffar from the punishment that is severe, what is I trying to

00:05:33--> 00:06:10

say? Allah subhana wa Taala is reminding all of us that even obese also love and evil and even the Sahaba even those pies of people, they have no control of Allah subhanaw taala then obeso salam himself, he's only a slave and a servant to Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he loves when he dies, what comes to him of blessings, what is taken from him are blessings is only in the hands of Allah. So there'll be some something missing, I am, like you I'm in the same boat. All of us have to go to Allah and answer him what we've done on this earth, and that whether he causes us to die, or he blesses us and He gives us life, then it is all in Allah prerogative, we also realize that this is

00:06:11--> 00:06:42

one of the themes of the surah. Allah mentioned the beginning of this, that he created this and life and here, this is being mentioned again, that there will be so so let me saying that even I am going to die, that I don't know when Allah subhanaw taala is going to take my soul. And so in many ayat, Allah Subhana, Allah tells us, and we did not make for any human beings, we didn't give any single person eternity, that there is not a single person that Allah said he had decreed for him eternal life. And so Allah says, if you are Muhammad are going to die even you will taste if even you will go through this difficulty, which is not nice of him, do they think that they will live forever?

00:06:42--> 00:07:17

Does anyone else think that they will be exempted, and Allah says to us, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is not but a messenger, other messengers have passed on before him. So if he were to die, or he's killed, would you turn back on your heels when you leave us religion? So Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us that the purpose of life is that it remains within a resource of mystery or is not the will, his message is what remains for eternity, his message of Islam of submission of submitting to Allah in the Quran, is for all eternity. And so therefore, for us, this is very, this is very powerful for us because we live and never having seen the newbies from never having interacted with

00:07:17--> 00:07:53

him, but he's sooner and the revelation that came that he came with and remains with us and so Allah Subhana Allah and so he's saying and is saying in the Quran, they know the punishment of Allah and the repercussions of your life continues with Mohammed Salam is they are not you you will every single person has to answer to Allah subhanho wa Taala then it is also known when he gave his first public sermon. He said I cannot save anyone from the fire of janome I can't do anything to protect you. Even faulty my illiquid is loaded is faulty my daughter Mohammed isn't I am not able to save you from from Allah subhanho wa Taala every single person has his own account to deal with Allah

00:07:53--> 00:08:28

subhanaw taala on the day of Kerala make it easy for us. And there's a beautiful Hadith about the Nagisa Salah BC to the Sahaba the Santa Ana signee Malik lottoland reports this then responses How I wish how I long to meet my brothers, I look so forward to meeting my brothers. And so the Sahaba were quite surprised and they said are we are we not your brother's Yasser Allah says Allah and so then Abby's also responded and said, rather You are my companions You're my You're my Sahaba but my brothers are those people and of course my brothers and sisters it means here together those who believe in me yet they have never seen me and I'm looking forward to meet them and so then I'm so

00:08:28--> 00:09:05

Salam is very excited to meet us. He's made aware he was told that your religion, your deen and your message will reach the to the east of the earth and the west of the earth, and many millions of people will follow you. And even though majority of this oma the billions of us has never seen an abyssal Salaam, he hasn't seen us and led meeting on the day of karma will be the first time we meet him. And so Subhana Allah Wellman ivsa salam, of course, cannot prevent the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala his intercession will assist us and that is why the best that we can do is to follow his Sunnah and and to pray to Allah subhanaw taala that we are amongst his people on a day of

00:09:05--> 00:09:43

kamma when you mix to our for that indecision, we continue Allah Subhana Allah says, and the next is or the first is quite a severe is saying that even if Allah wishes to kill zombies or salad, or to give mercy upon him, there's nothing that anyone can do that the the power is solely in the hands of Allah that Allah says cool, who are rough man who am and who can, but then also say he is a rock man, that no matter what we know that anything is possible, any calamity can befall us this entire surah was about how calamities can befall you how any blessing can be turned against you. But then at the end of the sort of this novel, surah ins Allah subhanaw taala says, say he is a man that we

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

still have faith above all else above our fear above our worries above, you know the disease that is around us. Anything can happen, yes. But above our fears is our hope that he is he is a rock man, that when Allah deals with us, he does not deal in an in a way to cause harm. He does it with mercy. He's our

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

Rahman, m and b that we put our faith in Him, we believe in him while he can. And we put our trust in Him, that everything that we have we as believers, the believers are feel secure, that if we do our part, we, you know, worship Allah, we fulfill our obligations to Allah, then everything in our life will be right. It doesn't mean that a believer doesn't go through a hardship. It doesn't mean that if you will be if you are a sincere believer that Allah is not going to send a calamities upon you, even the MBL were the most perfect of people, all of them went through very, very difficult calamities, but the these things that Allah had given to them, it came from a place of love. And it

00:10:34--> 00:11:13

came from place of of perfection and a taste, of course. And so the Sahaba in the offseason, earlier on the alarm, even if the believers you know calamities can be happening to us, how do we know if sickness or, or hardship or the loss of life and wealth? How do I know if this? is Allah punishing me? Or this? is Allah testing me? Or is this actually a blessing from Allah trying to perfect me? Or how do I understand that. And so he said very beautifully, that if any hardship comes to us, and it brings us closer to Allah, it makes us more aware of Allah. And that was actually a blessing in disguise, and that Allah sometimes takes away a mercy. Now, many times we realize it's not Allah

00:11:13--> 00:11:47

punishing us, he just took away that which he gave us. And that's why the DA in Manila in late June reminds us it is not that Allah subhanho wa Taala is punishing, he just takes away that which was unknown. When we lose a loved one. When we lose our health, when we lose our wealth. Allah had given this to us. And now he's taking it back as is him It belongs to him from the beginning. And so it is now time that he takes it back. And we cannot, you know, we cannot have any say in the schedule of a lot. But when he takes it back, we believe that it was for a reason that this blessing if it remained with us a bit longer it would have caused harm that is, and that is what it what our call

00:11:47--> 00:12:21

means. Taka means we put full dependency in Allah, we are in your hands, Allah as the beginning of the solar, that'd be any hidden work that all of creation is in his hands, that when you look and make Allah says, look at the creation, the creation besides inside the trust in Allah, and they do as Allah had commanded. And so you don't see any tough out. You don't see any problems in the creation, you don't see any chaos. So put yourself in Allah's hands. He's a rock man, put your trust in Him when something comes before you. And you know, look, this thing looks good, but it's haram avoided, it was not good for you, that if I can cut a corner here, I can score something, if

00:12:21--> 00:12:53

something I can do, but this is not going to please Allah in avoided in the short term they might be against but in the long term, it will be to my detriment. So we put out a worker and Allah completely versatile Allah Muna man who will be in so Allah says, and then we will know who are those who are in clear misguidance meaning those who don't put the trust in Allah, they will come to see the consequences of the actions in this dunya Not only that, you don't have to wait in the Africa to see the consequences of your actions that if you turn away and you don't put your trust in Allah. And so how true is this? Now, when we faced with a global pandemic, when our lives have

00:12:53--> 00:13:26

become so uncertain, we don't know if we will have a job. We don't know who will become sick, who will die, no one no one knows. In soheila we never knew those things, those things were already not known. It was just we falsely believe that we knew we falsely felt secure. Now the reality is made made apparent to us, and the only thing we can do, whether we feel upset, we feel sad, we feel angry, we feel anxious, those things don't make a difference. The only thing that makes a difference is to say Allah, you are the only one I can put my faith in and my trust in these nine in the heavens and the earth that can harm me or benefit me except by you. And so we put our trust in you,

00:13:26--> 00:14:03

you are rock man, you are the Most Merciful whatever you do you do with love and with kindness and mercy. And so I put my trust in you whatever path it is that you have put me on, we accept it and we obey and we will only do that which pleases you. And we know in the end either in this dunya and in the affair or definitely in the dunya. And after we will come to know who you know what was that? That was going to be the right course of action. The last iOS panda Dallas's again, cooler item, say, Have you considered in US Bahama? Akuma hora be made in Maine Have you considered if allow it to cause you to lose your your your water, if your water were to sink into the ground, who would

00:14:03--> 00:14:35

bring it back basically, besides Allah who would be able to bring it back other than Allah. And so this idea is, is the conclusion of the entire surah reminding us that water, of course, is the most important thing for life, that if any, you know, any blessing, the weather can be taken away, the last thing that you can that should be taken away is your water because this basically means your life is taken away. Water is also in the notes in the Quran guidance. And it could mean that your basal cell lamp so remember the Sahaba that the previous idea, it said that if I should die, and this is what the COVID wanted, they put all the hatred and the anger upon him that you know, when

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

you're young, if you are gone, all our problems will be solved. And he says to them, that you I go doesn't mean that your punishment Allah is going to go but it doesn't mean you're going to you're going to avoid karma, that all those things are still going to come. And so then Allah say that if I were to take your water and your physical water, or your spiritual water, the Quran, take away Islam from you, then who will bring it back and this for us as believers when we think about it when our dunya becomes

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

You know, unsettled and we want EDR Allah, my risk, my health, my opinions, my kids, my own, you know, well being you worried about that, then you realize there's a bigger concern that if allow us to take away our guidance, if allowed to take our away our mind, if allow it to take himself away from us out of our life, then what would we have besides Him, then we would we be without that, that Allah subhanaw taala no matter how difficult life is the fact that you're still saying the Cali my La ilaha illa Allah, the fact that you are fasting and only Subhanallah 1% 2% of this country is fostered this month of Ramadan has spent the night in inshallah, how many of us have give thanks,

00:15:35--> 00:15:49

that he has allowed us to worship Him and to make us to be on that path and replay that we are on the path. I mean, and so Allah span is again, reminding us how many favors that he's given given us all the time, malice panatela, except that which he has given us and

00:15:50--> 00:16:26

Allah Subhana Allah counters to be grateful for that which he has given us, and grant us to fulfill the duties to put this into practice in our life. So this is the concluding overs of social work. Allah subhanaw taala Forgive me for any shortcomings in it, and we never do justice to the words of Allah subhanaw taala. And maybe some final closing thoughts on sort of milk? and answer is seen, as we've been through this month, we've had the opportunity to go through these two chapters. So firstly, on sort of milk, we know the total milk loss part of the prophets of Salaam tells us it is a protection from the punishment of the grave. And so one of the things that we can link up and

00:16:26--> 00:17:00

number one, it's an abuse on set. So when police practice, and so we believe it is there anything from the sort of add links up to the punishment of the grave. In fact, we don't speak the grave isn't mentioned much in this chapter. But this is being mentioned. And it began, he said he created death and life. And also, if you look at throughout the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala. what's beautiful about the surah is he mentions the danger that the Earth could do the steel, the sky could do the steel, your water could disappear, things bad things can happen to you. Then at the same time, he says on the other hand, none of these things happen, when lost to the earth swallow you up

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

when lost in the sky rain down on you, when lost it, you know, Subhanallah when we had the drought, we felt that that you know our water can be restricted, but then Allah gave it back, it was an inconvenience rather than a distraction. And now we're going through another thing you know, this COVID-19 disease, Allah says, these bad things can happen, but it seldomly it hardly ever happens. And so it means the counter to it is that these are constantly working in your favor, constantly protecting you. And so the surah is about how Allah subhanaw taala highlights all the dangers around you. And none of those dangers actually hit you, meaning that he is constantly being in your life

00:17:35--> 00:17:50

protecting you. And so their most vulnerable we would be of course is when we die. And when we enter the cover. Now that prediction is gone. Now there's no more protection anymore. Allah subhanaw taala. Either you've earned the mercy in the dunya. Now in the Cobra, Allah subhanho wa Taala if you did not,

00:17:51--> 00:18:26

if you did not turn to him in the dunya, then that protection is gone. And so then this surah this chapter is that chapter that if you've recited it, then it will come that prediction will will continue through the cover, and even into kiama. One had even beautifully said that surah two milk will intercede with you every stage of the way in the copper on kiama at the questioning until you enter Jana, it will be your partner so as you keep so rotten milk Surah tabarrok with you every single day in the dunya you're friends with him. Now when you get to the alpha, he will only leave your side when he sees you intergender masama now you're saving two gentlemen, now he can leave you

00:18:26--> 00:19:05

spatola What a beautiful link between the surah and the way we Assad Allah. Now we are also on a final words on Sofia scene and sort of milk. We said both the surahs were revealed in the marking period. And there's a lot of similarities in them. For example, you would not find a single idea in any of these students had mentioned playing soccer or fasting or making Salah V's there is no physical requirements that the surahs bring forward. We know that also both these tourists have a special kind of link not only because that's maybe why we dislike them, we should recite them part of our daily routine. There's a lot of benefits in them, we find that sort of we are seen for

00:19:05--> 00:19:41

example, it is mentioned that he forgives you since we recycle every single day. It makes makes hardship when he went every day, every time whenever you go through a difficulty, and the Sahaba would recite it they would find ease in it. The one protects you from the punishment of the grave that you saw and the one protects you from the from from a difficult death that's what I have seen. I'm the one intercedes with you until you enter into gender that is of course certain work. So these two soldiers are both of them to different shields at different times in different points. And that is why it is part of the rituals that you do daily to recite it and Subhanallah we also learn from

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

these two chapters and the whole Quran in fact that the Quran is your protector and is your weapon in all kinds of difficulty. And it's amazing if you think about it, especially now we come to the end of Ramadan. When we ask what is the most blessed month it is the month of Ramadan. And when Allah speaks about it, he says shakra Ramadan Allah easy love you

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

Quran what makes Ramadan? Holy is the Quran? If you ask what is the most blessed night of the year, we know it is covered in the answer. Now he later called what made what made this night so special? It is the fact that the Quran was revealed on that we asked what is the most Blissett Angel Angel of gibreel and who brought the Quran down gibreel who is the best of the Gambia Muhammad sallahu wa sallam, why did Mohammed Salam get the other MBA I did not get he got the Quran. So whenever the Quran touches, it becomes the best, the best month the best person the best Angel. So the best house is the house that recites Quran, the best person is the person that continuously recites Quran. And

00:20:36--> 00:21:09

so we see just to shoot us Panama, these two suitors have such powerful effects, you know, on our well being, and they're very short. So probably take you 10 minutes to recite them both. What about the rest of the Quran and the blessings lying in every single idea. And so we we it is an encouragement to as we leave the month of Ramadan to continue reciting the Quran on a regular basis. Don't put the Quran back on the shelf, and forget about it. This is the thing that will bring nowhere in our lives, nor in our house, it will protect us even in the carbon in the darkness of the cover. That's when this Quran will come in our most difficult times most powerful except we also

00:21:09--> 00:21:47

know from these two surah Allah subhanaw taala mentions the the power of Allah has His Majesty and His power, everything is in his hands. So why do we worship anyone besides him? Why what mean is the to worship anyone besides him to put dependence on anyone other than Him, when we are dealing with all of creation is in his hands. He does what he pleases everything that moves is by his will and he's decree, there is no harm that can befall you except by his permission, and there is no blessing that can come to you except by Allah permission. Both the suitors pointed out much of the perfection of the creation. And why does Allah highlight the creation, he highlights the creation to tell us

00:21:47--> 00:22:10

that behind this creation, there is a designer and a creator. And it also goes to show that whatever is in submission to Allah, the sun, the moon, the planets, the earth, the heavens, all of it is in submission to Allah. And so therefore you find Perfect, perfect harmony, that if you want harmony in your life, if you feeling distressed, if you feeling that your life has problems in it, then submit to Allah subhanaw taala He will make everything you will fix everything in your life.

00:22:12--> 00:22:51

And link to that, that when you submit to Allah, there are so many benefits almost panties in both both the sutras, the name reminds me a lot of man is the one that is constantly sending out his blessings and his and his mercy upon you. He's on Latif is on hobby, he is the closest one to you, that the ones who submit to Allah subhanaw taala, Allah Himself intervenes in their life, and he makes their life good in this world, and in the next, and that he knows the deepest secrets that we have. And he is always intertwined with us, we learned from this pop up from the surah that we have a perform these chapters, that there is a purpose to life, but just as everything in creation

00:22:51--> 00:23:26

fulfills its function, our function is to connect with Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore the one that Allah very clearly says, and so the more that he created this and life as a test, who is going to be the best in the deeds, this is a this whole life, everything that comes to you, maybe some some of these things are good, you know, you get an unexpected blessing coming into your life. That is that is a blessing, but it's a test I was gonna ask you, what are you going to do with us? When some day some calamity befalls you, Allah protect us. And then it's also a test, what are you going to do? How do you how do we navigate the challenges and the blessings of life, these things do not

00:23:26--> 00:24:07

change the purpose, the ultimate test is Allah subhanaw taala reaching him in Africa, there is a test to see who do the best in the deeds. And so that is how you pass or you fail this test. For those who fail. They are the ones who live in a hafla. And in delusion in one surah Allah speaks about the McAfee lone soldier he has seen and in this one of my town guru that they are in horror that they are in delusion, meaning both both signifies being blind, being unaware, being completely delusional, living in your own fantasy world, not aware of what is reality. And so Subhanallah you don't want to be like that person who wakes up. When he enters the cover, the only way he becomes

00:24:07--> 00:24:47

alive The day he dies. And so there are many people that are living on autopilot. In fact, the majority of the world is on autopilot. They just do things if you ask them. Why what is your purpose, they won't be able to give you an answer. They just go with whatever they desires, whatever it is to, to satisfy one urge after the other. We as the person who is walking upright is the one who is conscious and Subhanallah boats was amazing. When all speaks about the successful one in Surah, Yaseen and stomach, Allah mentions Hoshyar man, both the name of man is mentioned in Surah, mulk and surah, Yaseen and the quality of hatia Yes, for sure, we said part of it comes from fear.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

But Porsche is so much more than fear. It is about being conscious being away, that there are consequences to my life, that my life has a purpose and has a meaning that I am in at least the most, the biggest loser is the one that doesn't realize is part of it.

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

And so Allah says the one who succeeds in life is the one who has a relationship and a concern with Allah both through the MOOC as well as in says, This is the quality, it will give you success to contemplate and reflect on a law that is the one that you cannot see. And then what are the consequences, you know, Subhanallah This is not like any other thing. This is big, serious stuff, where as you read the Quran, you realize it's panela what is at stake is big. It is not simple games, and always not playing, making jokes about these things. But in life, that if we we are constantly surrounded by by dangers and vulnerabilities, and is only out of Allah, Rama and his

00:25:35--> 00:26:12

mercy that he keeps them at bay, that if you look at your life, most you cannot, you can only we can remember the times when we're sick, right. So there were a few a few times, I was very, very sick. But for the rest of the time we're healthy. We can only remember the few times when things were difficult and constrained. But the rest of our life was easy. So Allah tease us with a bit of hardship, and a lot of ease and comfort. And so Allah reminds us that so easily, can a blessing be taken away? Yet none of them are taken away very seldomly does Allah bring a hardship upon us, and so do not feel comfortable, and if we neglect Allah, and we are heedless, and his blessings are used

00:26:12--> 00:26:48

in a wrong way, and we will see the consequences in this dunya will begin to see, you know, our world falling apart. And this COVID-19 is a big reminder to us how quickly Allah can change the status quo, don't feel secure, don't feel that you can continue abusing our blessings and they will not be consequences. Then of course, the other side of it. Allah also mentioned like the birds, but even though the birds are so fragile, they don't have anything, they go hungry, Allah make sure that every single one of them will eat, every one of them will be okay will be safe and sound. So the one who puts himself in Allah's hands, he's like that bird flying, but Allah, I don't have to be worried

00:26:48--> 00:27:22

about anything, so long as I do as you commanded me to do, I am safe, I put my trust in you. And that is the success there is only as far as the dunya is concerned, then, of course, there are even major bigger repercussions in the era, Allah subhanaw taala reminded us in Surah, mulk that life and death was created as a test. It's what I asked him, Allah mentioned how the planets or the moon goes through its stages, or the sun goes through its stages. Everyone's Time is ticking. Everyone's clock is ticking. And that exam can come to an end at any time, one of your hobbies saw that the template could be blown meaning Fukuyama or molecule note could visit us at any time. We don't know. We don't

00:27:22--> 00:27:58

know. So hydrilla when molecule mode is coming, and he will not delay for a moment not for any single person, not one extra second will be given. And so we are reminded about the transition of life were reminded about the earth how it comes back to life of the state, meaning that after we did that is not over there is another account a bigger account, and that is, of course, the resurrection. And so, Allah mentions in both the sutras the consequences of the one who lived a life of a hoffler, who lived a life A heedless life, a meaningless life. They are the ones who when they wake up on qiyamah, they are the ones in deep regret local, national or national mokona vs herbicide

00:27:58--> 00:28:32

if only we listened if only we thought if only we just, you know, use our brains, if only if only all those who own these will come on the day of karma, and then it will just become more and more difficult. But as for the believers, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the rewards and how they will be saved and how they will not be feared upon them. And of course, the best and perhaps the most beautiful idea of both these chapters that I was Sarah Coloma Rahim, that Salaam a word from the Lord, Most Merciful, nothing better than that when you intergender. So as you think about life, its difficulties, its problems, all we're going to go through, believe with certainty will interject now

00:28:32--> 00:29:06

one day, and as we're in Jannah, talking and enjoying ourselves, we'll hear that voice Allah, nothing can explain what that would be. When Allah says salami my peace be upon you, you will never ever feel any fear, sadness, hardship, you will never cry, you will never struggle now is only enjoyment. That is all you're going to have for all of eternity. That is what this life is about. That is what we struggle for. That is what this test at the end of the season might not be a nice test, no one wants to be tested. But these are great, rewarded the instrument Allah subhanaw taala. Granted, we understand these rules, more than just reciting them we inculcate them in our life, we

00:29:06--> 00:29:38

make them part of our daily routines, whether they be intercessors for us on the day of gamma, and in the Kaaba, our companions, may they be a means by which we intergender Allah use them as a means to avert all calamities, hardships in our life, in this dunya and in the after. And may we all be together as a means to help us to intergender May we be of those that received the mercy and the peace of Allah in this life, and in technical fields, I mean, when hamdulillah before enough, we are sharing with you so you will see that you are the audio in Sharla. And you got the notes the slides with it is a quiz that we go in, and we'll go through the answers for the quiz and their prizes with

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

him. There's also a special survey. And we ask that you fill it in and you share the survey. So even if you don't share the lecture, part of Islam machine, we have a very good track record of documenting our history here in South Africa. So Alhamdulillah over the last hundreds of years. There's many important events that occurred through the Muslim community. This is a big one, many generations perhaps we'll talk about the year that

00:30:00--> 00:30:32

First time that the mosques were closed for Umar that Ramadan was was in this manner, we would love to hear from you your experiences so this survey is for us to get a much better understanding about how you've gone through this time and that we can document it for future generations. If the lessons to be learned and we can learn from them they will mistakes to be made we can fix them and also span Allah in history minus about how we hope to go back to normal. So that next time we have this these discussions, it is in the masjid again. But even in La Jolla, hey, we appreciate your time and being with us. We continue inshallah tomorrow with the conclusion of this year's program of romanzo
