00:00:53--> 00:01:12

In this blessed month of this blessed day of this blessed hour of Yeoman tomorrow, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us our good deeds and forgive us of our shortcomings and our mistakes love them and mean. We also ask Alonzo

00:01:13--> 00:01:42

to bring relief to our brothers and sisters around the world who continue to suffer in whatever capacity in whatever capacity they suffer in male allies. So a gel make it easy for them to love them. I mean, Yola, Bob. Today I have a set of verses from sorbitol Hadid, which I would like to share with you because they love each other. Before I do them.

00:01:43--> 00:02:31

I've been spending some time in the month of Ramadan, just talking to Muslims wherever we meet, asking them, how was Ramadan, I was the fastest. And generally speaking, when he learned hummed, the vast majority of us as Muslims have embraced this month. And we have embraced it in the sense that we recognize its importance. And we understand that there are countless opportunities to do much good not for not just for others, but also in particular for ourselves, to improve ourselves, to strengthen our bond in our connection with our Creator, many Muslims when they can't understand and recognize this.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

But in the midst of all of them.

00:02:36--> 00:02:44

I couldn't help but also meeting a few Muslims that question, why do we have to fast

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

especially now that Ramadan is in the summer,

00:02:49--> 00:03:09

I met a brother, we were just having a casual conversation in the beginning of Ramadan. And he was very bitter about the idea of having to abstain from food and drink in the middle of the summer. And how that was so difficult, and he felt it was unnecessary. I don't know if he's fasting or not.

00:03:11--> 00:03:32

But just the whole idea of questioning Allah subhanho wa Taala is when wisdom would get anyone worried. And you yourself will start to reflect on yourself and start asking yourself, if you're having the same sentiments if you're thinking about the same things. And this brother further on, he went in he said that

00:03:33--> 00:04:24

if he feels his exact words, if he feels that he can get through a day or two comfortably, only then he will continue as best as he can for the rest of the month. This is a born Muslim. And I started to think where's this coming from? Why is this happening? More and more of brothers and sisters. And don't think brothers and sisters that this is a problem just for young people. This is happening amongst communities, perhaps all over the world that are questioning this whole idea of faith and IE men and sacrificing certain things about themselves or about their lifestyle for the sake and pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala they're questioning why we should do that, or to what extent

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

that should go. A mother was saying to me that she has a child that has an anger problem. And so she would tell her child, this was a teenager she would tell him every time you feel angry, go and perform we'll do because this is one of the teachings of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The son asked her mom, how is wedding my linens wedding my skin going to help me overcome my anger. And she also he also said to her

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

I'm gonna go and perform will do, but I bet you I'll still be angry when I'm done.

00:05:05--> 00:05:14

And you start to think for a moment that there are brothers and sisters who struggle to find that connection

00:05:15--> 00:06:00

to find the connection of why we do certain things in our religion, and the overall benefit and outcome of that commitment of that sacrifice. And so today, I want to give you a glimpse of how poor end talks about the subject of people. Some of the reasons why they either question their faith or they lose it all together. May Allah protect us from that love them. I mean, I bring your attention to Suunto hadeel. And the verses that I've selected for you today are verses 12 to 14 in sorbitol, headin. Now, the first verse that I want to share with you is going to talk about an incident that will happen on the Day of Judgment.

00:06:02--> 00:06:59

Eliza Joel says that the believing men and the believing women yoma total meaning one minute, he is neurohormone bainer ad him will be a man in him. So on the Day of Judgment be evening, Lenny Tyler, all of us as believing men and women we will come on that day and there will be light, there will be light in our hands. And on our right. This is poor ends way of saying that based on the sincerity of your deeds. Based on the hard work that you've put through in this world to do all of those good things will determine how bright this node will become on the Day of Judgment. So our good deeds in this world will be turned into light on the Day of Judgment. Some people they will have just a small

00:06:59--> 00:07:50

glimpse of this light. Others the messenger salovaara someone told us that they would have light that would literally spanned from one city to another. So some people will definitely experience this light more than others. And so Allah continues on he tells us Bushra Kumar Leone, Jana to integer even tactile and hello Holly Dina he has that he can who will allow them alive xojo will save to all of us insha Allah Congratulations, you get gentlemen, in which there are gardens and rivers will flow beneath those gardens. And this is a great honor and a great blessing that Allah has given to you based on your efforts here now and today. Male lies so don't accept our good deeds

00:07:51--> 00:08:14

alone. I mean, then the conversation continues. Now this is where it gets very interesting. Allies though agility the next verse tells us he Oh, my nephew Paul. Now one more nephew pot, littler Xena Amano. So there's gonna be a conversation between a group who are of course the hypocrites May Allah protect us from them.

00:08:15--> 00:08:32

The hypocrites are going to see the believers. So immediately this a is giving you an illustration that there's going to be this massive distance between believers and everyone else and this believers I'm one after you're born, and so on.

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

And the monarchy upon the hypocrites will say

00:08:37--> 00:09:24

little Athena M and o una Napa tervis min new recon. So they're going to ask for something. They're going to ask for what the poor poor m calls fit best. fit best literally means to borrow. So they're going to ask the believers, Can we borrow a little bit of your light? What is tells you is that there is going to be a point on the Day of Judgment where it would be pitch dark, no one will be able probably to even see the next footstep that they would want to take. And the only brink of light, the only hope that we'll be able to see where we're going. And what we're doing is going to be based on the righteousness that we perform in this world with sincerity May Allah azza wa jal

00:09:24--> 00:09:49

bless us with that ultimate view. And so they see this and they ask, Can we borrow some of your life because we don't know where we're going. So this image that believers are at a distance the Mona Poon are at another distance. And then they say, Pilato, JIRA water or confront me Sue neuron, the believers will say to the hypocrites, go back,

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

go back and find your own light somewhere else, maybe behind you somewhere, go and see where you find your own light. So now, there

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

is a split of two categories. The verse continues, then Alonzo Adel tells us for booty babina home B sewer Illa baboon belted o fi he'll rockmount waffle hero whom in the belly lather.

00:10:18--> 00:10:32

Then Allah will allow that this massive wall will come between the believers and the hypocrites. And this wall there is a door that door deserves its own footbed

00:10:34--> 00:11:24

so there's this door and there's this massive wall that's separating the two and then Allah describes on the inner part of this wall meaning on the other side where the monesi opponent can't see so they're standing on one side they can't see what's happening on the other side. Allah says on the other side of that wall there is there is mercy but on the side that to you the moon efia Poon are looking at. This is nothing but either been punishment. It's not finished yet. So this is the imagery the this verse has created for us. Okay, so what happens next? The verse continues. Yuna Duna home, lm na kumarakom. Now this is where the verse becomes much more interesting.

00:11:25--> 00:11:42

The more nafi Poon they start asking the believers on the other side. Hey, weren't we with you? We used to go to we used to be together in this world. Why? Why are we split apart today on the day of judgment?

00:11:43--> 00:12:20

I was your colleague, I was your classmate. We were actually buddies. We were friends. We were together. We lived life together. We went out and we enjoyed things together. Don't you remember me? This is what they're asking now. So what the mafia corner trying to do at this point is they're trying to tag along with the believers. Why? Because they've realized when it was too late, that all the things that they were up to in this world of wasting their time choosing Bad Company,

00:12:21--> 00:12:43

saying things and talking about things they shouldn't be engaged with. They realize that that moment that they messed up, and there's absolutely no way around this. So they're trying to tag along with the believers. So they asked the first question, weren't we with you? And then it continues. The believers they respond and they say cuando Bella?

00:12:44--> 00:13:06

Sara, yes, you're right. So now the believers are speaking back to the other side of the wall. And you're saying yeah, we weren't together yet. You're right. We did work in the same place. We did go to the same schools. We were living in the same street. We pass by each other quite often. Yes, you're right. However, while at kinako

00:13:07--> 00:13:22

Now here is the point of today's talk, but they respond and they give a couple of reasons why the split happened on the Day of Judgment one a kidnap home Phantom and full circle number one

00:13:23--> 00:13:39

they set to the moon at the a boon when you guys were in this world. You put yourself to trial after trial after trial. What does this talking about? The word that's used is fitna

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

fit that literally means hardship or trial.

00:13:44--> 00:14:38

And so they said to them, You guys put yourself in tough situations. What is this talking about? The Mona Thea porn had this habit that they would put themselves in situations where there he men was constantly put to test this is not talking about those who fall into those situations unintentionally without realizing it. No, this is a separate category. This group they purposely went to places they shouldn't have been going they purposely associated themselves with people they should not have associated with and so they took themselves for granted they thought that okay, just because I'm with them, but I'm not actually doing anything. I'm okay. You see the problem with that.

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

And people always ask you know, how come so much people are questioning their faith and losing their Amen. This is one of the reasons the poor and teaches us why this happens. Just imagine yourself use you have a friend or company that has a lot of bad habits, like they lose their temper a lot, or they smoke a lot or they do a lot

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

A lot of things that islamically they shouldn't be doing. It's only a matter of time before you that person starts to think and wonder.

00:15:10--> 00:16:01

I wonder what it feels like just like one puff of a cigarette or what would that feel like? You start talking, this is how shape pond captures us. And our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us about this. And he told us a model or on a Dini honey, a person is on the path of who of their friends of the people you associate with. This is the messenger. So love, it was someone's way of telling us watch out and pay keen attention to the people you hang with the people, you chill out with the people you call companionship. And friends, be very careful and choose wisely. Because on the Day of Judgment, that split will happen. So the first reason that is given is you guys put

00:16:01--> 00:16:25

yourself in tough situations. And as a result, you took it for granted. Because eventually, you started developing the same behavior and the same habits, even though we were friends. But you took up smoking and drinking and you started saying all these awful things. That's where we split even though we used to hang. Here's the second reason that foriegn tells us.

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

Then the second reason allies though Adele mentions water of Boston.

00:16:32--> 00:16:58

Tara Boston, is they started to procrastinate. So I want you to imagine yourself for a moment of someone when you're trying to tell them hey, listen, you got to change these habits you got to stop doing but you got to start praying. Come to total Li You haven't had one total, we had the entire Ramadan. Just come for one night and experience it. See what that's like.

00:16:59--> 00:17:33

And procrastinating in this verse is referring to the person who says, Don't worry, I'll get there. Yeah, I know. I have to pray. I know I have to get there. Don't worry, we still got another 20 days or so left inshallah. Trust me, I'll do it. You see, the one who procrastinates easily convinces themselves that they can always say no. Or they can always do what they intend to do. They've convinced themselves. Coraline is teaching us don't do that. Because it's easily it's easy for somebody to take that attitude for granted.

00:17:34--> 00:18:26

And eventually what happens. So it started off where this group put themselves in situations, they intentionally put themselves in situations where they should not have been in. And that led to the second problem, which they started to procrastinate and say, It's okay, it's just for a little while, I'll get over it, trust me, I'm not going to do the things that they do. So they start talking this way. What ended up happening? This is how the poor and explains these stages of when people start to question or even lose their faith. May Allah protect us. The third reason or the third point, the believers are telling them why the separation happened on the Day of Judgment alone

00:18:26--> 00:18:37

as an adult tells us a water tablet tune, one tap tune, then you started doubting this demon. So panela

00:18:38--> 00:19:08

then you started doubting? Do we really have to go for taraweeh? It's just what a sudden, it's okay. It's my choice. I'm good. You start doubting the importance of that act. Then the person starts questioning, fasting in the month of Ramadan, especially in the summertime. This an alum knows what's in my heart. It's okay. I don't really need to do that. They start questioning rituals, discipline, they start questioning commitment.

00:19:09--> 00:19:56

Do you see the separation of this is what happened it kept leading from one to another and it got worse and worse each and every time the moon fit upon on the Day of Judgment are listening to this. And in another suta Allah describes they are in this deep sense of remorse and regret. They can't believe this has actually happened to them. male lions so it'll protect us male lions, so it'll protect our sons and daughters alone. I mean, this is how easily this is how easily this most important precious thing that we have we call amen and faith. This is how easily we can lose it. Male lies so don't give us strength along mean. And then the verse continues, it's still not over.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

And then they continue and they say all right.

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Call me.

00:20:02--> 00:20:11

They said then, in addition, so you've started doubting and then as a result, you started developing a sense of false hope.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

You started thinking to yourself that Wait a minute,

00:20:17--> 00:20:56

is there really an A low or a God is still really somebody up there? Look at this world and how messed up it is and all the problems happen. They start having conversations like this. If Allah is really merciful, then why doesn't he stop all this turmoil on all of these problems? You start questioning allows wisdom, this person they start questioning Now why does a lot do these things? Why do I have to pray every single day? I meet Muslims like this, who actually question why five times a day? It's ridiculous. I don't have to bring that much.

00:20:57--> 00:21:05

May Allah azza wa jal protect us iulm above our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us this time will come.

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

And he told us that there will come a time

00:21:10--> 00:21:15

where people will start to lose assure in their prayer.

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

They'll start to lose focus and concentration.

00:21:20--> 00:21:28

There will come a time where somebody will pray and have no idea why they're doing it. This is like born Muslims.

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

And then when they're praying, they'll think about everything else except the solar

00:21:36--> 00:21:54

melas solar job protect us in a light crease and preserve our faith love them and mean. Our messenger I leave is Salatu was Salam warned us about this. Then the verse concludes, and it tells us what to do. Mo la Wahab rockin Bella Hello, horrible.

00:21:55--> 00:22:38

So these people, they develop a sense of false hope. There's not going to be no Day of Judgment. What are you talking about? We don't need a religion. We don't need to believe in anything, we can just kind of live and do what we want. We hear this from a lot of young people don't we just leave me alone. I just want to do what I want to do. This is what the verse is talking about. That attitude, watch out for it. And this is why it's so crucial and so important for you and I as parents, that conversation with young people, it can never stop. There must never be a moment in your life with children or even your own kids. We are not engaged in some kind of conversation. Just

00:22:38--> 00:22:42

hearing them and talking to them about anything and everything.

00:22:43--> 00:23:00

Because this verse is telling you that by companionship by association alone is something to be concerned about. Because that could be to doubt that could lead to procrastinate. That could lose that could be a reason why people will end up losing their faith.

00:23:01--> 00:23:27

And that will lead to the disaster that happens on the Day of Judgment where these two groups begin to split. Man learns to protect our faith. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts and in our lives on lahoma mean akula Mantis mountain was Sofitel la Holly welcome Marisa. Massimino. minko lay them first off Pharaoh in Nevada la foto Rahim.

00:23:35--> 00:24:10

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was happy he woman whiner a mother and my brothers and sisters. Why have I chosen such a topic or subject for you today? This is actually the hidden goal or secret of Ramadan. We hear it all the time that Ramadan, Allah told us that the ultimate goal is to do what what are you supposed to achieve, land upon upon, so that perhaps you can attain some form of consciousness between you and allies Oh agenda.

00:24:11--> 00:24:42

But most of us if not all of us, at least here today we have them. We have some level of taqwa or Ramadan. One of its hidden goals and wisdoms is so that we preserve and protect that consciousness of Allah. Later on, install it and had it told us how to protect yourself from falling into one of these categories. Later on in the song allies told us about the heart

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

and that the heart, the faith, the sincerity, the taqwa that all of us we strive for, and when we taste it, we don't want to let go of it the way to do that. The way to preserve and protect our

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Faith is a lot tells us that the heart has to constantly be attached to the remembrance of allies. So agenda and tough, sharp pulu boom leader basically learn that the heart is always fearful. It's always a mindful. And it does this by the constant remembrance of Allah. If you're struggling for that, if you're struggling to do that individually, then you might be the person that needs to be here in total we every night.

00:25:37--> 00:26:29

This is our opportunity where we can sift out those weaknesses and turn those weaknesses into strengths. And the Ramadan. We are engrossed in the remembrance of Allah. We are engrossed in the poor with the poor and we are engrossed in prayer. This is the opportunity where we can recognize what needs work, and we can actually work at it and solve those problems but isn't it later either? And so with that being said, we asked Eliza wichelt to accept from us our cm. We ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from us our pn, our record, our sujood our Dora Yara balada mean, we send peace and blessings to Allah Rasool Salatu. Was Salam or it can be a Marana subhanho wa Taala Phaeton xili in
