After praising Allah Subhana Allah,
sending immense greetings and salutations
upon the final prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
we come to a topic that concerns us all
of remaining steadfast
whether it be after the month of Ramadan,
or other times of the year or throughout our lives.
The believer the Muslim is always trying to find ways of is the farmer
of remaining committed
and remaining steadfast and the goals and objectives the individual wants to attain or achieve in this world.
And we know that imagine it fluctuates and it changes
and the heart and the mind needs to rest
and providing that time of rest
coincides with the Quran and the sooner
then it becomes something acceptable.
But for some of us, unfortunately, the environment begins to plummet to such a degree. It goes out of the realms of the Quran and Sunnah
and becomes something which is unacceptable at times.
And even we know at times even halaal things,
some of the relevant mentioned a quite possibly principle
that the job was a shaved head to us badly.
If you go beyond the bounds in anything,
possibly could even be something hallel it becomes the opposite could become something forbidden even something which is permissible.
So we want to find ways of remaining steadfast remaining constant,
remaining on that average level is we know that a man is he to be a young
man, it goes up with good actions and it comes down. disobedience was Allah Subhana Allah.
And as a side point, this topic of remaining steadfast or remaining committed is something every single human being faces in their life.
They just a difference in the way that we try to remain steadfast and other people remain steadfast.
Do you think non Muslims don't face challenges every single day?
Don't you think they override the difficulties, the pressures?
Yeah, some of them they may break.
They may lose focus and devotion and commitment.
But they have a vision. They have a dream. They have a goal and they see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So why don't we see the light at the end of the tunnel? Why don't we see that commitment? Obviously their commitment is for this world. Love of possession, love of wealth,
love of property, love of position,
love of emblems, medals on us. knighthoods, whatever it may be.
This is a strange point even though Koran mentions because sometimes we may think that they're weak individuals,
but some of them are ferocious. Some of them are committed.
And some of them are damn good warriors as well.
Because Quran mentions for in Nome Yamanaka, Mata the moon, they face afflictions
and pain just like you face it as well.
And at times, they can bury it harder than us. But then comes a key factor about what makes a Muslim geek go beyond the limits. What are Judah mean Allah He May or June when you aspire for is something from Allah Subhana Allah
They don't Aspire. So the Quran is documented it will be amongst the non Muslims as well. They will face afflictions and calamities and difficulties and they will override them at times.
But their hopes and aspirations are false.
So remaining steadfast
and finding ways of steadfast is for all of us.
And we know that the more you burn gold,
the more is placed inside the furnace and the heat. The more it is purified.
The more precious it becomes.
The more you shine a diamond, the more it sparkles,
the more a believer is tested, the more pristine and Orthodox the believer becomes

of these three letters, I mean, the people perceive and think we're going to leave them alone, and your kulu and what we believe we're home law afternoon, and they will never ever be tested. Indeed, we did test the people before you. That alone may show those who the truthful individuals and those who are the liars.
So Islam has its fitten has his tests and his trials, to sieve out those people who are the liars, those who are the hypocrites and those individuals who are the real believers. So not Allah He allowed there is the son of a lost founder Allah upon this earth may not happen now. may happen in five years, 10 years, 50 years 100 years time while earning more in the law he Subhana Allah but the believer is always equipped and prepared
that the journey will not always be smooth.

Look how many of us will begin to crumble. Whatever the media displays around us or the peer pressure, whatever it may be, we begin to wash away our emotion. So some fear, some loss of your lives, your loved ones, your own self, your wealth, your property your fruits, give glad tidings to those individuals and calamities before them that they make the statement to a lowly belonging to a lower return. Will a galleon salata, neurobion eco Mata Dune, those are the ones that the prayers salutations those pantalla upon those individuals, and those are the rightly guided individuals. Even we find that times life becomes difficult for even the prophets.

Allah doesn't let your Eman go to waste even as a in a second use of a lot panda not letting one's Eman goes to waste element of sera mentioned is referring to one Salah one's prayer of 16 or 18 months the Muslim used to pray to was beta Naka this, then we find that will change the Qibla some of them felt remorseful, the 16 or 18 months of offering the prayers what's going to happen to those prayers? So let's panda send down this ayah one mark and Allah will you be our email? No, come Allah will not let your Eman go to waste. And likewise, you find that last Panda Panda does not express any servant. So one shouldn't

and shouldn't think that lust panda allies have often known Amma yamalube for the moon and away or heedless of what the presses are doing upon the face of this earth. The believer remains constant remains committed and persevere until the individual meets Allah Subhana Allah does the current tests that we find around us the obstacles
show even more importantly, the Amir the importance of remaining steadfast. That's the Quran mentions for Pharaoh illovo
flee to Allah. Some of us Muslim fortune will begin to flee away from the Quran and Sunnah flee away from an Islamic identity, flee away from my Islamic rights and regulations and begin to make excuses about them. Especially refineries around the Western Hemisphere. Many of us eventually begin to cave in.
But it's been prophesized by the prophet Mohammed Salah selama time will come.
The believer who is hold fast to one's faith will be like an COVID Allah de COVID Allah Gemma, the person who holds fast to one Dean will be like one who's holding on to hot cold ones hand. Meaning that's how fast a person needs to remain steadfast to the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. That's why that famous Hadith, whereby the Prophet Muhammad gave that strong admonition and he highlighted to his followers. They said as if this is the final sermon, give us an admonition. And in that final admonition that he delivered to them,
he said to them early can be so nutty upon us to follow my son my example and the way of the qualifier Russia dental magazine that rightly guided cauliflower
alley have been no urges, Whole Foods fast to my sadhana, with your molar teeth, grasp it, but hold on too tightly remaining firm to the teachings of the Quran. And hence Pacific the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we find what is the final result for in numerosity you throw in number three is
indeed after every hardship there is ease after every hardship there is ease
so they come with us can brother is my
komali accomando go and see his sister she's not well and she needs to be taken home.
So in this ayah that we find indeed after every single hardship
there is ease after every hardship This is her limit of setup discuss
what does it mean is there to hardships and is there to ease
and here earlier I mentioned there is only one hardship and two easy's as something that goes back to a bit embarrassing lanius lib rasaan use rain. One hardship cannot overtake two easy's and here they are going to linguistic discussion, because it's mentioned here for a number and also ulcer with lamb with tarrif which is any Maratha which is the known article with the hardship. So here's my mention of linguistics, that if the word is repeated with Lamin malefor with the the definite article, it is exactly the same. So it's not two hardships that occurred it's only one hardship and if a word is mentioned Nikita without the definite article without URL was hate mentioned for innama
Allah rosary for in America Oh sorry. Yusra users without Allah didn't say I'll use raw uses use run. So if is mentioned number 30. This is classified as two easy's for this ayah linguistically contains only one hardship and two easy's like we defined earlier I mentioned that whenever hardship enters into a tunnel.
They know for a fact that behind it will be easy.
The difference is we don't know how long the tunnel is tunnels of this world. We know how long the Channel Tunnel is or the tunnels are. But this tunnel of Islam no one knows. So as many hardships and obstacles and difficulties, but as we began with there is light at the end of every single tunnel.
The separation the distinction is we don't know how long the tunnel is at the moment. We're under a hurdle sorority. mustafi man.
It's a long path, a long path to Allah Subhana Allah person is to persevere and continue on that journey. Likewise, in ahaadeeth, you find a number and also the use of knowledge and indeed after every hardship, there is is another passage in the Quran we find CAGR the low bar there are certain use or or a lower place after every hardship Allah Subhana Allah will place ease for the individual is inside this dunya and likewise inside the Torah as well. As we find inside surah Ibrahim, the 14th Chapter The Quran is a bit of a Latina woman who will only serve at Phil Hyatt in dunya.
Last Panda, I'll give you his birth, steadfastness to remain upon Allah forbid, mm Sadie in his famous tafsir he writes and many of the other movers sirona have gone to this view as well.
Oh Luther bit, who Oh la la ilaha illa Allah is remain steadfast panto heed the belief in Allah Subhana Allah for Allah Allahu La ilaha illallah wa was stuck for leedham back inside surah Mohammed the 47 Chapter The Quran are not not mistaken, have knowledge and none has the right to be worshipped except for loss of power to Allah. And seek forgiveness any for your sins
reversed and continuous Azzurra Ibrahim you submit alladhina amanu Bella polysorbate even higher to dunya Will you de la la volley mean la Manisha manufacture and a lot lb Ghana you do you dilute local body means since stranger, oppressive individuals and last panda Allah does whatever befits His Majesty subhanho wa Taala. So inside this dunya the person will be steadfast. And likewise inside the earth era, the person will be steadfast as well. That is the power the magnitude of understanding belief in Allah Subhana Allah, as many people will always come and say what's the enemy of tawheed? What's the importance of belief in Allah Subhana Allah, this is the importance
because yes, we will all sin, various degrees of levels of sins that will commit but some people have tarnished their sins with a corrupted belief. So perhaps a person has a good belief
and may have committed sins may be washed away because they tried to find the pristine belief. The double mistake that many of us are making is we have corrupt beliefs and then we have corrupt actions as well. Then we try to justify that somehow we will seek our way into paradise. That's the Quran mentions quite clearly as a Sultan in the in the woman usually biLlahi Takada Rama Lavalle agenda, woman Welner woman live volley mean I mean I'm sure some people will start to say this may be a downer of a certain personality or an individual or group knows that Darrell Quran in Noma usually builder will be shared with Allah Subhana Allah sakata Hare Rama lo Allah Jenna, Allah has
made it hard for that person to ever go to Paradise.
So it's not a personal data. These are words in the Quran. We have a common shared religion that dies upon that it's held on finish, that person will never go to Paradise. And we know how rampant should get inside our community. As you may know, from Bella in the womb, mushy raccoon. Most people believe in Allah Subhana Allah, but they believe is tarnished with
concepts which go against the authentic belief in Allah Subhana Allah was full of some concepts of polytheism and schicke. builder he Subhana Allah by going to find another famous verse in the Quran talking about is the karma steadfastness
in the ladina Paul rabona law through muster, como todos de la Malaika Allahu Allah.
What I'm sure will generate a lotta quantum to I don't know Oh yo COVID higher.
In those people say Our Lord is Allah Subhana Allah thumbless Docomo. Once again the key word here is the karma. They remain steadfast they remain committed. What happens to these individuals that another's Allah Allah, Allah, aka the angels descend upon them, and say to him, no fear no grief be upon you. There's no grief, no fear upon
You enter into paradise rejoice of going into paradise because the actions you used to do we are your friends your companions in this world and like all we are your friends and your protectors as well. a madman hustler basri whenever you need to read this ayah
he would make this
Aloma Antara buena for a sock analyst a comma Oh Allah You are our Lord and bestow placed down upon me is the karma to remain steadfast. Another similar verse is also found inside the Quran as well as slightly different ending in under the Nakamura bonala from Mr. Como Fela homophone MA in Walla
Walla, shabu jannetty. Holly Dena Fie her just the Macan Malone. Once again those individuals say Our Lord is a law firm Mr. Kondo. They remain steadfast upon that fellow homophone Annie hiwula, whom he has known, there is no fear no grief upon them. These are those individuals are the companions of Paradise. Holly Dena Fie her residing inside paradise. Then comes a key element Jessica and Bhima. Can we are Malone, recompense reward for what the actions they used to do. So once again, your man has a buzzer, he said, Listen, man bitter many. Eman isn't false hopes, false aspirations so many Muslims unfortunately live upon false hopes. I'm a Muslim, Allah will forgive me
Allah will pardon me. I've done this action done that action that will surprise me.
That is sufficient for me. That's not what Islam is. Allah tala arabo. Amanda. column two min walk in kulu Islam, Bedouin Arabs said that we believe Quran negates a belief. Some of them don't even go to the view that mentioned these individuals, the hypocrites who made the statement, even the correct views that they were believers, there are Muslims who made that statement. But some have gone to the extreme view. The How can they say that we believe the Quran says don't say you've believed, but rather say you've submitted so many of us we think we're doing a great service to Allah subhanaw taala we're doing a great favor. But rather the favor is upon us that must pan down
has guided us towards in Islam. So Eman isn't just false hopes and aspirations and statements. He learned in the lesson that he will Gemma is an Emmanuel,
his belief and action. If you study throughout the Quran, you're always going to find a relationship between one's Eman and one's actions.
Hardly ever you're going to find them split apart. We're the ones that begin to split it apart. Well, at least I have imagined but I have no actions. Or I've got action but I don't have the right Eman. Now both of them go together. person needs to find the right email. And likewise needs to find the right actions or to do plentiful actions. Praying to last pan down to that last point down accepts meagerly actions and efforts that we do.
Likewise, the final order given specifically to the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem inside Surah Hood, the 11th Chapter The Quran refined for stopping karma on the earth remains steadfast as you've been commanded to do. So even though this ayah this verse is addressing the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam we find early merph or lwml Koran and tafsir mentioned that his various divisions of hip hop of addressing which has been mentioned inside the Quran. There are times when it speaks to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. It also entails the rest of this oma as well. So even though this Hippo is addressing the specific for stocking Kama amirtha, remains steadfast as you as you
have been commanded to do so speaking directly to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but that does not mean that this hip hop this addressing is not for us as a matter of aluminum Quran is only a few rare yet inside the Quran, whereby is addressing specifically the messenger for example as sort of a hazard speaking to the Prophet that for you to marry such and such women etc is permissible for you. So that address becomes specific. Any for the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salah As for other locations or the Quran, yeah, you wanna be how many Nikita prophet inspired the believers to come out to fight it towards warfare, etc. So this Kpop may be specifically for the Prophet
Muhammad but also applies to Muslims and he has been that at times that person needs to go out in the way in the path of Allah Subhana Allah and make any these actions.
Also fine as a side point, this Surah Surah Hood, if you go back and read it, the seed in the football in the virtues of sort of who delivered chapter two Quran, you find some narrations going back mentioning Shiva
me who do a cover to her? What has made my hair go gray is sort of hood 11 sora and his sister sudras. The large portion is soo Reza talking about the final day this is what made the
the blessing here of the Prophet Mohammed from go gray. The power and the impact the kuranda had on his personality and his mind, his soul and even his body. Mm hmm. He mentioned that after this verse was sent down from our elbow, Hakan, the Prophet Muhammad says was never ever seen laughing ever again. We did laugh, he would smile and we were really when he opened his mouth. And like for many of us that we laugh with our mouths fully open up at times could be going against the sun and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Another verse we find inside the Quran also talks about Easter karma. Speaking to the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem was talking about the wallet
to be aware of whom
was talking to Mohammed remain steadfast be commodity, do so while at home and do not follow the desires. What is the world around us at the moment? Is it not a world full of desires, whether it be the desires of corrupt beliefs, whether it be the desires of temptations that we find around us? That's the realm I mentioned. There are two types of affairs that begin to come upon this Muslim on one issue. One is doubts about the correct belief, etc. And the other is a shadow word, temptations his desires. And both of these are destroying his Muslim rapidly, if he's not sure had doubts in our belief, then his love of showered love of desires, temptations, worldly possessions, can see
rampantly that we're surrounded by it. So the Quran is telling us we want to remain steadfast you have to stay away from people who are full of our of desires and temptations who are going to distract you away from the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, what is allistic karma? What is steadfastness? But at the LMR concluded, is a list a list of various derivatives, and synonymous terminologies are mentioned. But all of them can come together and become a complete picture of what is steadfastness. First, we find at least a comma Allah Toshi, as we hinted, is to remain steadfast upon the correct belief in Allah Subhana Allah. Likewise is the karma that you never ever come and
shake with Allah Subhana Allah does he find some other saying Ming may mentioned to some of the companions that never commit sure could have lost panda Allah even if you are burnt alive,
person should never communicate with Allah Subhana who are under such a degree likely find other element mentioned any allistic como esta esta como Allah for him. They remain people remain steadfast upon the obligatory actions. So many people get overexcited about the vigilance of the night prayer. And this is also a piece of a police attempt deception, the devil really knocked on all night, standing in doing supererogatory actions than falling asleep at the time of fudger and missing, the fallen prayer was oversleeping, a missing bar, etc. So our key message, it may sound very strange, but living in the West. If a Muslim can be vigilant and diligent in performing their
five daily prayers, at their punctual time and preserving and guiding them, that will be a very good success have Finola Salatu was Salam ala busco wakulla he carnitine God your prayers, preserve your prayers, and especially the middle prayer and the most accurate view when the laser parent and middle prayers a lot to answer. Likewise, if an added volume of aluminum Khurana mentioned that certain verses which have become an sufa have been abrogated, specifically mentioned the word slot and acid as the middle prayer, as remember lumen Khurana collected wakulla e carnitine. And stand in front of Allah and Allah in observant, in obedient manner. in a state of servitude, we can see the
message of Muslims and the Muslims were there before in Ramadan, how the masjid was merely mushroom, this fool must be spilling out. Now as soon as Ramadan is over, what's happened, has a lot of Mandela changed, has a son of a lot panda changed, who's changed? We've changed
because we're not focusing upon those actions which keep us upon steadfastness. The in this month of Ramadan, we've been vigilant about our prayers now we need to take that outside of Ramadan. So amongst Moran is the karma is for him to be strong and observant upon those actions which are obligatory, hold fast to them and remain steadfast upon them. Likewise, earlier I mentioned malice dipalma lu Tata
So Canada Allah is the common means to hold force to obeying the law Subhana Allah, that you're always trying to find ways and the correct way of obeying Allah Subhana Allah, you're holding force to them. That's the whole concept of being a Mottaki a pious individual is always trying to find ways of that which pleases a lot of time to Allah and staying away from that which displeases or earns the anger The Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala likewise is all the remaining steadfast we mentioned it's not just for the Prophet Mohammed ism is also for the rest of mankind as well as if another famous Hadith in a survey of female Muslim man came to the Prophet Mohammed. So someone
asked for some was he asked for a legacy of some advice that you've had many times different individuals, Bedouin Arabs, people come and ask him for advice. Give me some advice. Sometimes you say to a person that talks about Don't get angry. You repeated it, don't get angry. Don't get angry, small words Jomo tell him concise words, right to the point giving each individual their specific advice, but that specific advice becomes general advice for all of us. So a man came in, he said, only Phyllis nemacolin, la, Lu, and who had an Iraq he said, Give me a statement. Give me a word, I can only ask you and no one else.
So what did the messenger sallallahu Sallam said to this individual? He said to him, all men to biLlahi from masakan. Say I believe in Allah, and then remain steadfast upon that. Simple advice. Once again is the whole discussion has been belief and remaining steadfast and action as men in the realm of concluding explanations, Hadith, what does it mean? That remains steadfast. You believe in Allah. Show your observers, show your obedience by remaining steadfast in carrying out those actions which show your belief in Allah subhanaw taala. Now obviously, many of us may be thinking, well, that all sounds good about what is at least a common technical definition of remaining steadfast,
etc. But what concerns us today, what tonight is ways of remaining steadfast? How do we now extract that image that we had inside Ramadan? How do we now begin to take that and take other things to remain more steadfast amongst the ways that a person to remain steadfast the dilemma of collected is overland? Allah caballo Al Quran is to come towards the Quran because many of us obviously Ramadan we hear the Quran or recite the Quran and after Ramadan it begins to slip away from us Kitab Allah He was a gnome Liana moon for the book of a lost contact behind our backs as if we don't know to the first way of remaining Wanstead forces come approach to Quran to take from the Quran. As the Quran
itself it mentions lokala Latina cafaro, Lola and Mozilla alko an omelet and
the disbelievers you save only the Quran didn't come down, it didn't come down one portion, because the previous revelation they all came down as a single book. But the Quran came down in various stages over a period of 2030 years. As
mentioned, the mums your teen is added on for a normal Quran as well, how the Quran was put down, etc.
So why doesn't it come down in one go? And here the answer is given by last panda which carries the hidden message in which concerns us gather like a new sabitha before
that we may live with a bit of that we may keep your heart steadfast. So the Quran comes down at intervals in stages. According to the time and the nature what's been question have been asked what needs to be sent down to strengthen the image of the individual. So that's when a person comes to the Quran reads portions at intervals, that a person is obviously going to strengthen any day a man in Iraq continues, or aterna hooter Tila to recite in 13.
And that's the Quran is supposed to be written or read in the form of 1313 another passage, not mistakes that sort of resemble that we find that person should try to find that rhythm or that tone or that flow inside every citation or are not as unfortunately many of us really as parents and just begin to whizzed through without any trying to deliver the correct pronunciation of the words and the letters of the Quran.
Walia, tuna kabhi, methylene Illa. J. Naka, will help you as a native Sierra did not bring any parable, because many people tried to bring parables and similar tools etc. But the best of parables and examples have been laid out inside the Quran doesn't mean in the room have just collected what's known as unsaddled Quran. The parables which have been placed inside the Quran there's numerous parables right from the beginning. From the brooder from the from
From the fly all the way throughout the Quran, of various animals of various creatures of human beings of the deaf, dumb, the blind, all these parables, why have they been placed in the Quran? What typical am fellow not Riba? holiness Allah, Allah whom yet
these are parables that we throw down upon people upon mankind, they may begin to ponder and reflect, like or define what stopped him amid the worst that we mentioned previously remained steadfast and been told to do so. In terms of fear and authority goes to the view was stuck him remain steadfast Alan Quran remains steadfast upon the Quran. Upon besides our understanding of the Quran, the implementation of Quran is his interpretation of showing any sticking to the Quran. From the Quran, what can we take from the Quran that will strengthen our Eman and keep us steadfast?
Once again the LMR mentioned that which can be extracted from the Quran is firstly without a doubt is the stories of the prophets wakulla nakasu Allah come in and by Rasul man with a b2b for
every time we narrate to you the stories of the prophets once again, what is the key message of sending down these stories man with a bit too before we may strengthen your Eman? It's a bit it's bad. Make your heart steadfast keep you firm with jack Have you heard the and Haku are more than what the Crawley momineen and Didi has come in his book admonition guidance and a strong warning and reminder for the people who are the believers. So when a person goes to read the stories, the prophets whether directly in the Koran or looks at compilations, like the works of McCarthy in this process will MVR stories of the prophets. All these stories have been mentioned in the Quran to
strengthen the Eman of the individual. Does he find if you go back to the story of Ibrahim Ali Salaam of remaining steadfast when they said Paul Harvey who wants to come in Come in burn him? If you're going to rescue and save your gods, and when Ibrahim LSTMs thrown into the fire pulmonaria narew Cooney barudan was Salam and Allah Ibrahim warabi cadenza Jana Houma, la serene, to person find steadfastness. Okay, Ibrahim Ali samvida get worried. In a Brahim McKenna Martin. He went on, people say what differences one man make? What difference does it make? One man can change a whole nation. You know, even if you read the lives of some non Muslims, single men have changed in many
people's perceptions change and lands, countries nations. They had the belief in their family continue that journey.
So here Ibrahim Ali Salaam was one Man Booker and documents with one nation. So he remains steadfast. The challenge of being thrown into the fire. He did not crumble away, give away his faith, remain steadfast and Allah blessed him by turning that which normally burns turning it to become something peaceful. For Ibrahim Ali Salam. You come to a large portion of Quran. A large portion is Quran yokoso Allah Bani Israel talks about Bani Israel and is specific about Musashi Salaam. Let's move on Islam comes to that location to that destination of fleeing from his people are fleeing from for our own. That behind a Mr. Own in front of him Mr. River. Strange scenario
musasa been helped throughout his life, even when he was a baby baby. He's been helped throughout his life. So the people when they say Phelim Tara, Gemma Nikolas harbor Moosa in Nana Matera hoon. When the people of Musa they see all these great gathering, they say in Allah mudra cool, we're going to be overtaken overwhelmed.
See what happens a man begins to because that's what some of us will look at numbers and digits.
You know, at the moment, these people have spent 114 billion pounds
on the war on terrorism.
And those people in those mountains have only spent 17 million
it's a great big game.
So they think that we're going to is all about numbers and digits. one millimeter, eight millimeter Joaquin de la rama wasn't new years old, a lot size and when you threw it wasn't new that threw
when you throw there wasn't new. But it was us.
That threw that dust into the eyes. So it's not about digits and numbers.
Because then moosari some he turned he said, All I can do in number, A, B, C, D. Ne with me is my Lord and He will guide me throughout my life. He's helped me taken care of me. So how now can I believe that even this Pinnacle point in my life, the river Nile is in front of me around these massive armies behind me. There must be a way out is the karma remains steadfast and I'm most proud of commodity
At least not take the same staff that you've used throughout your life to strike. And if you begin to see that these the river pots and once again the son of a lot pantalla river it flows, but here it turns into two huge mountains and a passage of canal is made for musallam to traverse or travel in between this gap.
But once again a person needs to remain steadfast have that belief that conviction does occur and mentioned you Latina
O you who believe in Tantra, la young sarcoma you submit.
If you remain steadfast, if you want the victory of a left hand there's a two way relationship you remain steadfast than the last one that will strengthen you aid you and give you victory and keep firm your feet on the ground to a relationship don't expect that change is dropped from the heavens.
environment that we live in is just going to drop some people many people wait for the mat is going to come and this is going to happen continuously waiting.
Inside Soto rod we find in the law Halla Yoga yiruma becoming Hata yoga you may be unfussy him, Allah will never change the condition of people until they don't change their own condition.
So under has to travel, the path of steadfastness to make that change inside the wider society. Likewise, you find inside surah Yusuf, another blessing Surah 12 Chapter The Quran is the only surah in the Quran,
which was sent down in the year of animal frozen the year of grief, whereby many calamities came upon the Prophet Muhammad some including the death of his beloved and only first wife at a time Khadija de la De La Hoya. The whole of the surah came down
and it's the only surah no Quran that begins with a story and travels through the whole story and completes the story. The rest of the stories in the Quran are all separate. A few. A few is the few words there are a few words there. This is the only place that sort of use that we find it begins by mentioning nanosilica asasi Bhima. ohana, la casa del Quran. Indeed, we're going to narrate upon you the best of stories which have been placed inside the Quran. So stories of the prophets, they make the individual become steadfast in a way of Allah Subhana Allah. And likewise, the end of the surah mentions la katakana we also see him a brothel.
Indeed, in the stories of these prophets, the story of the specific proper use of a slum Abraham is a lesson able to legally Al Bab is something for lessons for people or men of understanding. Makkah and Hadith a new story. These are not made up fables and stories and myths. These are real stories of showing how these people they persevered remain steadfast as Ron mentioned phosphate, karma sobre el Azmi minahasa. remain patient as those people have lofty goals and aspirations. Here's what you might have seen mentioned talking about the five blessing prophets, Mo Ibrahim Ebrahim Moosa Isa, when a beginner Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam these are the prophets that remain steadfast read into
the life into the series, like or define in such suitable Rouge, a Shabbat Oh dude, the companions of the ditch had remained steadfast upon the calamities that we're facing. Likewise, another key Sora sort of gaff, which we should recite every Friday inshallah the 18th chapter, the Quran in nonfiction, ama noburo beam, was it no Buddha, the young men, young boys, who believed in the Lord and we increase them in guidance. So the person begins to approach the Quran as you mentioned, the general category, a cabal Quran, come to the Quran, to seek more admonition to seek guidance to security, etc, purity of the soul of the mind. And likewise and secondly, to come in specific to the
stories of the prophets. The third thing that we find to remain upon steadfastness is under
a DA to make the this is a weapon that all of us carry, we can no longer can carry the AK 47, etc. We can't carry that no more, can we? Even you find that even if you read about them, just because I'm reading about Weinstein at the moment, we find that for them to carry a weapon is more beloved than eating and drinking. They will carry on until they master the use of a weapon even have to starve for many days.
And likewise, they write that the only thing that concerns me is the blanket as well. The blanket becomes a rug, the prayer mat, carrying weapons, carrying food, whatever it may be, that's the life
but the weapon that we can carry with us today. Obviously, I'm not promoting that, if that's what somebody would try to extract. The weapon that we carry with us, as in all of our pockets, or should be in a hot is prayer to lots of data. That's become difficult for many of us Muslims and for some Muslims. If you don't want to pray and open even secrecy
The hardship, the oppression, the difficulties, the rape, torture has taken place upon this Muslim Ummah, if not publicly at least secretly, the depths of the darkness is paid to loss panned out. These are Your servants. They're the sons and daughters, your servants, they're Muslims. They're being oppressed. They've been tortured, their honesty the chastity the dignity has been taken away from them send one that will alleviate the problems send one who will protect them regain their honor the dignity part of them forgive them even that unfortunately for us has become something politically incorrect that we cannot even make any for any these people but we are allowed to make
for people for cats and dogs who may die around us.
That's what we find open Allah Taku bonobo de tener habla de Milan kurama.
Shadow Quran powerful to as you find Robin Allah to the albana do not send our hearts astray. after You have guided us there is a powerful or that we don't know the amount of believers the twinkling of an eye the Prophet Muhammad used to make certain supplication don't even leave me for the twinkling of an eye. That is the Prophet of Allah. And so total faith that we find that we have forgiven your past and your future sins even though since they are not sins that we make they're just minor Miss judgments as to proceed have mentioned that he made but everything about him has been completed. Yet he is saying do not even leave me for the twinkling of an eye. We left for many
minutes many days, many hours. Many years we left become so full of ourselves.
As you find a person who is praised to left handed do not send a stream of hot off you showed me the guidance laquon find robina Africa Alena sobre was a bit abdominal one sooner okay very literally our Lord pull down upon us patience. Africa, Elena sobre. Once again the key word was sub bit of the mana keep firm feet, posture as standing at devotion or commitment towards a loss of hands towards the deen of Allah Subhana Allah amongst the most excessive supplications of the Prophet Mohammed simonside sujood yarmulke liberal Balu Sabbath lb Ana de Nick key word again submit our controller the hearts keep my heart firm upon your dean, are the narrations of wording, refine yamu serif and
serif calbee alata attic are one who changes the hearts change my heart towards your obedience. This application we can all go and take back pain to last panda give us the karma. Keep us the steadfast the whole meaning of it inside of Parana moto phap in the biller. I don't have any tofik any ability except for by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah even is a long discussion of what is La hawla wala quwata illa Billah mean what does it really mean? any movement, any speech any conduct is owned by the permission, power mind is only by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Thirdly, we find the third stage is the crolla. The Vicar of Allah Subhana Allah, this will keep a person and he
stays steadfast on the deen of Allah and Allah. And obviously we find out how some of our brethren begin to just say that maybe just doing enough Vicar in he will blow out the candle or take the hardship that we're facing, but this incorrect time of making the correct and appropriate Vicar of Allah Subhana Allah, as we find certain narrations that always keep your tongue moist, with a dhikr of Allah Subhana Allah, but it's a key verse that occurs inside if I'm not mistaken, inside the eighth chapter of Quran by Allah and I mentioned Yeah, you will Edina Manu either lekuton phiaton fast puto or you believe if you meet the party, if you meet the group. First Butoh once again the
word fast boo to remain steadfast with Cordova kathira, Allah Allah come to flow and make excessive abundance and dhikr of Allah Subhana Allah, you may become successful. The contextual understanding of the layout of these verses is jihad.
So think about this very deeply and carefully. If Atlas panda is saying that if you meet the group that enemy, Firth, Bhutto remains steadfast, and make Vicar of Allah Subhana Allah, then think about if we're outside the realms of jihad.
So even in jihad, you've been told that your victory is given by you constantly remembering that Mandela wouldn't be the vicar of the heart and refine the care of the mind. And obviously, the best decade is to display upon on the tongue. So imagine if we're outside of that realm, outside of that arena, so we should be old doing excessive liquor, and remembering a loss of pound and excessively in a scar after the prayers and during the daytime, etc, that we find fourth way upon remaining steadfast
marinara sauce. Dara T is a laser panda to practice giving data to people
giving Dawa gives and strengthens the Eman of the individual. Because that versus we mentioned previously was talking can remain steadfast. They've been commanded. You've been told to do so. There's another key word that comes before it mentioned fairly Danny confederal was talking.
So funny Delica further, and thus you should preach Dharma to people. So giving that word to people, it helps you to remain upon is the karma. Upon steadfastness. No one is ever going to reach a level of perfection. Many people say, Well, when I get to a level of perfection, that I'll give Dara no ballyhoo and he will convey for me even if you know one verse from the Prophet Muhammad Salah. So those people around you your family members, your loved ones, you have the ability the wider community other people deliver the message. A keeps a person helps a person to keep up on steadfastness. Because giving Dharma is like a reflection a mirror at morula NASA bilberry button so
nanfu Sakuma and Nikita falletta a loon was there a newbie somebody was Salah, were in Allah Kabira Illa Allah hace Akashi ring, a tomato nurse a blueberry you tell people to do good things
and you start and you don't do it yourself and you recite the book. So Islamism are what we find Christianity Today the pope Gangwon, apologizing, etc. Further this charade is making apologizing biggest hypocrites, in their belief in their actions covering up everything. Yes, we have some levels of hypocrisy with this but hamdullah we don't have such a degree of child abuse and such any pedophilia and corruption that we find amongst our priests or religious clerics. hamdulillah we don't have a yes, we may have some small minor elements. We're not going to deny that fact. We don't have to such a degree because most people understand that Islam is a religion of practice. When you
practice your deen you automatically are preaching your deen. So the more that we practice our Deen the more it becomes a a tool of data towards the wider society. Likewise find the remainder in who are in the decree and I mean this is only a vicar so giving that as a dicker.
Ben remind because indeed the remainder benefits the believers they mentioned among
Amata Sharona in the initial along mean whoever wants to come upon is to commerce only giving Dawa can be a Minda reminder about the days of Allah Subhana Allah, He helps the person come, inshallah by by the permission but let's prank call upon his karma, upon steadfastness, likewise the individual who is delivering you need the message as well.
So all of this any these four factors that we mentioned is broad categories of coming towards the Quran in specific coming towards the stories of the prophets. Likewise, we mentioned of giving away the lives of 100 Allah making the making dhikr of Allah are ways that we can begin to develop incorporate in our life to begin to remain steadfast in the way of our last panel, Diana. And we all know as we mentioned, the best such surah Brahim is a bit Latina, a man who will probably feel
alone make his bed of those people who believe inside this world and likewise inside the theater as well. That's in conclusion none of us should ever forget. This is the greatest blessing of Allah for a person to remain upon Easter karma. Because even addressing the Prophet Mohammed says in the Quran, it mentions while Ola and putnika Lacan, kita terkenal, Elaine Shea and kalila if we are not made steadfast your heart and this is addressing the Prophet Mohammed ism, you would have inclined towards them a small amount, you would have inclined towards them in some of the things they were presenting some form of retribution or some form of unique deliverance or alleviation that should be
given to the operations etc, whatever it may be, some form of compromise. One Ola and subbotnik we have not made hard your firm your heart and your faith you'd have inclined towards them. That is in specific to the Prophet Mohammed says And once again, so we should also be praying to London and thanking Allah, Allah, that he's kept us upon his karma for the month of Ramadan and now outside the month of Ramadan to pray to Allah Subhana Allah that keep us in he upon Islam, because we know the greatest blessing is the blessing of Islam. Alhamdulillah Allah de hadden only had one Morocco Nina de Loyola and Hayden Allah, Praise be to Allah Subhana Allah has guided us to this to Al Islam. And
we have not been guided to Islam we would have been amongst the way for the people who have been manifest loss or misguidance. We also lost pounds out of strengthen all of our Eman and to place these words inside Amazon of our Santa maxima
Those individuals alladhina yestermorrow Nicola una Cena who had the words of Allah Subhana Allah and follow it to the best of their ability and implemented throughout their lives. wakulla Cody had no stock Fulani welcome, polygamy muslimeen of istockphoto in order for Rahim subhanak Elohim Hamlet, shalom lillahi lanta istockphoto katapola.
Okay. I just like to open up the floor to any questions you may have.
It was asked in the question that we read total caffeine on a Friday, if you read in another language, not in the Arabic language that still provide or give us the light for the following any Friday and some durations extra three days coming up to 10 days?
simple answer is no.
You have to recite it in the Arabic language. So you can maybe try to read it in Arabic. And the same time we didn't English afterwards that gives you some insight what you've been reading but persevere, remain committed. If it takes you an hour, two hours, eventually over time, it will become easier and easier. Don't read it too fast and try to compete in 10 minutes some people do I don't know how that's possible anyhow.
Reading the whole Quran in one night as well and a few hours but persevere and inshallah last panel, open up your heart and your tongue to recite it in appropriately. But the same time do read as you mentioned English as well. So at least you are abreast of you know what's being read. That's the biggest problem many of us that we face, we don't know what the Quran is saying. But the Quran is addressing me at least everyday read a page in Arabic. And then read it in English or language understand that night and hopefully, you're going to normally tend to read more in English because you have more of a flow and modern language and go way beyond. So when we come to the Arabic you'll
begin to pick out key words and symbols and ideas and verses that you've already read are he's talking about more about sacrificing the cow this would happen etc. That's a good way to keep any in touch, but persevere remain any the most beloved actions are lost and Allah is adamawa in that action which is done on a habitual basis even though it may be a small action. So the daily basis will be one either Quranic Arabic, persevere upon that. Always make sure you read one either or another should be a lot more than that. But just say for example, beginners devil reading every day, if you don't understand or you can't read Arabic fluently, read one eye a day, then read the English
and in the evening, another time during the day, inshallah we'll know Are
there any other questions?
everybody's asking the question about we've seen the impact Ramadan aim of strengthening our Eman and keeping us upon Imani shala How about the option for us and as we find in the Hadith that we have a complete the 29 or 30 days of Ramadan and then comes with the six days of Sha 168 Chevelle will have the reward of initium as the person has fasted for the for the whole year. So for each force you find any 10 rewards so 36 times 10 becomes 360 so that becomes as if the person is fostered for the whole year and then from there person can take possibly fasting Monday first day three days of the month to keep that momentum going. inshallah so obviously we we take small
glimpses of Ramadan and begin to try to do those small actions that will have a big impact inshallah so that's a reminder to all of us that try to keep the six days of of shower was better consecutively to do them to take them in one flow is better to do that because a person may fall sick etc. And if not, at least try to find six any separate days or weekends when you're not working etc. To complete the six days of show world especially when the body is tuned to fasting this will be a great blessing of remaining upon Easter calm as well inshallah
We'll start the first question she had mentioned about about speeding sort of multi 67 chapter on that does it any Is it a way or alleviation of the narration that talk about protecting oneself from the punch the grave, those ahaadeeth any day authentic that person one way of protecting yourself from the punishment the grave is to recite sort of on a regular basis every single night will protect the present and punish the grave. The only other way politically is not correct for me to discuss the other way where you can protect yourself from punishment the grave, leave that to your imagination. The second part of your question
they asked about would it interfere with a genuine understood reading the rest of the Quran etc obviously we know that any if you look at that bookshelf there it's got different compartments hasn't it? Put everything is right place time management time organization you're reading a suit of milk in the evening is suitable during the daytime after furture before forget about acid try to read something else so it doesn't clash
Malala I said Don't be that my reading has to be done at night not not classroom suited molecule but the rest of the day to find a moment to read something else from the Quran but keep that moment at night specific reading sorta inshallah inshallah Allah bless the time, even like I said to three minutes or two, three hours in the day in the beginning of the day in the middle of the day, we feel comfortable and remain constant upon that and keep that time in the evening. If you have the time to specifically to read sorts of milk inshallah.
If a person was asking some people just look at the Quran and you know, and maybe seek some bless if a person is totally illiterate.
And maybe you place your finger along the Quran some Baraka, maybe you could forgive the individual but a person can read the Quran they've got no excuse. And also holding the Quran many people set out to throw away now with the with the iPhones and the iPads and taking them out and looking at the Quran and falling the ayat and fidgeting about with a gadget phones now in the realm of talked about holding the Quranic that is preferred behind the Imam, they should correct the Imam if there's no preferred then the person can hold the Muslim. So this continuous move movement that we find that people holding the must have or using their iPhones and whatever it may be now you know, soon it
might be even laptops connected to your head and right in front of your screen. Although Adam strange world that we live in you know, the essence of the Quran is what essence the Quran is to is to read the Quran is to make that difficult journey of reading the Quran. So just looking at the Quran could be some form of Manu Baraka
maybe some Sufi Baraka inside there just looking at the Quran will get you to paradise, but the real essence get you to Paradise is reading the Quran. And in the meaning of regional Quran is what to implement the Quran has the most impact. So unless the person is totally illiterate Yeah, there are some people totally illiterate you know, everyday just move their finger the Quran and they weep, saying that Oh Allah I never I never learned the Quran. I can't read the Quran. So pardon me just by moving my finger on these words, alone, judge that person, possibly forgive that person. We don't go around impressing people with these views that just look at the Quran and inshallah you'll be
forgiven. Now we need to go and tell people to go and learn the Quran inshallah Allah
pray to cause mechanical symptoms without any issue. What are your thoughts on how to improve that secondary, some of us are able to read without understanding at all. And so the ability to pick on the lives of the prophets
the first second part you mentioned, but lives the prophecy did hint towards at least begin to read the Quran in English. And basically when you come to those passages, you'd have you it's not too difficult if you're reading surah Yusuf and then you hear the word use of that, you know what's taking place, have you read it in English, the use of is bought to the whale and he's thrown into the world. He's taken out the whale, he goes to the wizard, this happens, etc. So obviously it doesn't become so difficult to know
stance of the we're making difficult although quite honest or difficult, that's something that dogma has been placed within us. Koran is a difficult book to understand. The Quran is sent down upon people who miyun were illiterate. There are only certain passages in the Quran out of the 6300 odd years in the Quran that you find only 500 talk about,
about rules and regulations. And that's whereby you need first Allah the creme de la de la mood. So people have knowledge if you don't know, other than the Quran is accessible to the layman like us, is accessible. That's just a myth that we're living in. So as long as you try to read in language you understand then go back to the Quran inshallah you'll be able to understand the Quran. As for the use of the Arabic grammar, the language is totally different, but the average individual should be able to hear something that's being recited. And now this is talking about Musa alayhis salaam, this is the station This is the position. The second part of our job is to go back then study the
mechanical aspect of the prayer, how is performed, what's being said the supplications to understand their meaning, but all strengthen when a person does stand inside the prayer, sort of to her in the Hadith bootsy kuzhambu salata, benei ouabain Abdi have divided the prayer here, a Salah man Al Fatiha divided the prayer between myself and the last founder and the servant. And the person when you say Alhamdulillah layerable alameen. Allah says hamadani Abdi seven has praised me until you find you come to the part of the Hadith that had the baby will be in the valley of the Messiah and this is between me My servant and my surgeon would have whatever you ask for so long many times
people making long as after the prayer, when the whole of your prayer has been what has been done to go back and study any when you see in the shadows applications of seeking refuge protection from the grave What do they mean? So learn the Maharani, then the meanings. Likewise, your environment as well. If you know there's a choice between two meshes here, the Imam, you know, in 2.25 seconds, he's prayed all of these prayers. And here the mom takes 20 minutes go to the Imam who recites who's fluent with the Quran, who resides within our local machines we will know isn't it you come from Muslims like in a you know, moms like myself sort of teen and social class over and downwards not
too easy sort of. There you go finish isn't it? That's a natural norm isn't it? A good Imam is the one that you come to the Imam just something comes to his mind from the Quran bang starts reciting you're right in the middle sudler are better suited, suited renewed. So that strengthens the Eman of everybody that different I mean besides on a daily basis, but unfortunately many of our moms in it they're not so vigilant many of them are just Ramadan moms as well. They can only recite the Quran in Ramadan. So I could have in the Quran is one who keeps the Quran inside their chest wherever they go.
So many of our friends that memorize the Quran we asked them you generally talking what's the ayah in the Quran? It's not Ramadan
I have to go back and revise in a good amount is what you're asking what's the ayah pluck it out straight away that's why one interpretation may be Tell me what you've been able to claim a Josie right when he was inside prison is well below saving vocational godmother yep I'd rather be an agenda to stand up sorry, what can my enemies do to me my garden my paradise is right inside the heart. One interpretation is the Quran is right here inside my heart wherever I go, it's with me. So I can't get depressed I can't really use don't fall into anxiety anxiety or or feel any unhappy the Quran is there. So obviously try to find a machine with a good email could be citation and that will
inshallah strengthen the horseshoe of the prayer likewise to take religion into common time etc. And you know, inshallah, Allah will open up all of our hearts and minds in Sharla.
Sorry, brother. That's right.
What about the
importance of it? Did you just come in now you hear from the beginning.
And we will somebody asked about that.
Maybe another time may not give a whole lecture about the importance of caffeine is Tafseer. I'm sure Asad Hanif has done quite a few good lectures and talks about that as well inshallah
