00:01:25--> 00:02:06

Indeed Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him we seek His mercy, his forgiveness, his guidance, we testify that whomsoever is guided by allies, our agenda, none shall steer him away from the guidance. And we further testify that whomsoever is misguided by allies, so agenda, none is able to bring him to the guidance. My brothers and sisters, we further testify that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is his servant and most perfect worship or hence the methodology upon which we base our worship and our lifestyle upon as to what follows a verb.

00:02:08--> 00:02:17

We are all here once again, in the blessed month of shuttle Ramadan, on the blessed day of Yama Juma

00:02:19--> 00:02:29

and we all have one thing in common, regardless whether it be in shadow, Ramadan, or any other time of the year.

00:02:31--> 00:03:01

Each and every single person, regardless whether they are Muslim or not, whether they're male or female, whether they are gin or ins, we all have a single goal. And that is in our life. We wish to strive and seek to find peace and tranquility in this dunya we all wish to have satisfaction in the dunya.

00:03:02--> 00:03:21

And so, our destination, our goal is exactly the same. This is why we fast. This is why we pray. This is why we try to do the right things and stay away from the hot arm, we want to have a good life in the dunya and hear a good life in the hero.

00:03:22--> 00:03:51

However, since the destination is the same the paths that people take are very different. Some of the segments in society teach us that there are those who find peace and tranquility, by wealth and materialistic possession. They spend a large time of their life trying to gather as much fortune and wealth as possible.

00:03:52--> 00:04:07

Then there are those who find peace and happiness through power, trying to control as much of society as possible, trying to climb the political ladder as much as they can.

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

Then there are those who try to find peace and tranquility.

00:04:14--> 00:04:40

By accumulating as much possession and at the same time, they are submitting to each and every single desire lust, women, alcohol, drugs, all of the things that they desire, they submit to it, then there are those and this is the majority of mankind

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

is that they will take a combination of everything we have mentioned to you

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

and this is how they find peace and tranquility. The question brothers and sisters, what I wish to address with you here today is how does a Muslim How does a human

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

find peace, satisfaction in this dunya what are the things that we need to do in order to reach that goal that every single person once every single person is striving for?

00:05:16--> 00:06:02

If you ask a person who is the richest, who is the most powerful, most fortunate, if you ask him, and you say to him, you have been striving and struggling for 20 years, 30 years, 40 years of your life, have you reached that happiness? Have you reached that tranquility and peace you are looking for? If they are honest, they will say to you, no, I am still striving, I am still looking for that happiness. And even if you don't ask them, statistically, you will see the highest divorce rates, the highest crimes, those who get into a run ins with the law

00:06:04--> 00:06:57

are the ones who are the richest, statistically, it is the richest of them that fall into this rather than the poor ones. It is not always those who are less fortunate. And so the question is, how do you attain satisfaction in this life? brothers and sisters? There are numerous is in the core and we wish to discuss with you a when we come to Surah unfurl. Allah azza wa jal tells us in Surah unfurl. Yeah, you holla Xena m n o. O you who believe this is you and I the people of he man. Allah azza wa jal is saying Okay, now listen is to Ji boo lilla when lil Rasool is that there are Kumar, he can answer the call of Allah and His Rasool

00:06:58--> 00:07:24

answer the call of Allah and His sort of soul, in order that you may have life in you, in order that you may be alive, what is this life? It is the spiritual life not physically being alive. It is the spiritual life that Allah azza wa jal is talking about the call of Allah, scholars have given numerous interpretation what this could mean from them.

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

They say that the call of Allah is the call to Allah Himself.

00:07:30--> 00:08:03

Another reason is that the call of Allah is a call to the religion of Islam. And scholars have given other reasons as well. The idea is general allies so gel is telling us answer the call of him sapan Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you will have life. What is this life? We now go to suited Anam Allah tells us in sort of an hour men can meet

00:08:04--> 00:08:51

for dinner who what's your anala? Who knows who I am she behave in us. Allah azza wa jal tells us that before when a person did not have life in them, they were dead mean spiritually and we gave them life for it. Now we gave them the spiritual life, we gave them the religion of Islam, what was the result? Or Jana Allahu neurochem shibi fineness, that person who took that light, they became a norm a guidance for everyone everybody that they were with anywhere in the world, they became a norm a guidance for all of mankind. And so brothers and sisters, we continue

00:08:53--> 00:09:03

that if a person does not have life, they become like the animal yet I met de una una cama Taku. And when no matter what level

00:09:04--> 00:09:38

they become like an animal, all they do is they eat and they drink and they married they have children just like the animals and in sorted out of Allah azza wa jal tells us rather, they are worse than the animals better whom are born because an animal as opposed to a human being humans, we are given an intellect and if you don't use that intellect, we become like the animals. Furthermore, brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in another area, what happens to a person

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

what happens to a person when they do righteousness? How do you pursuit this happiness? How can you find peace and tranquility in the studio? We go to Sunita nahan Allah tells us suparna What are men Amina saw the Han min decade in our own 31 min.

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

fella who hired him to UVA?

00:10:04--> 00:10:30

Allah azza wa jal tells us that whomsoever does righteous deeds, regardless whether you are male or female, and at the same time you believe, at the same time you believe, Allah tells us with certainty, that person will have a sweet life in another area of life, so Adele tells us in Aurora levina,

00:10:32--> 00:11:06

that it is the righteous men and women, the righteous people, they will always be happy with the blessings of Allah. The word Naeem is the plural for Nirvana. So, the blessings are endless, they can come from anywhere, this is to the righteous people. So their money it is blessed there is Baraka in it, their jobs, it is blessed their schools and the things that they study, it is blessed, their homes is blessed, their marriages is blessed their children are righteous children. However,

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

in a barrel Athena

00:11:10--> 00:12:04

was in no food jar Allah fija him your Sloane a her Yama Dean, as for the evil people, for them, is the jehane is the hellfire. And Allah azza wa jal has reserved this punishment for them on the Day of Judgment. There are two things to realize here, brothers and sisters, the first ayah there is no time restraint. But in the second ayah, for the evil people, Allah azzawajal tells them that maybe they might have some blessings in the dunya but it will all come to an end, because there is a punishment, reserved and waiting for them in the era. For the righteous people, they will have blessings and bottlecap in this dunya as well as in the era forever. We ask Allah azza wa jal to

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

make us of those who are righteous.

00:12:07--> 00:12:40

In another a brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us for Amma men are for what taco was for Dr. Bill hasna. For several years, Cyril who lil you saw as for the one who has taqwa, who believes and who has his money, and uses that money for good, this person, everything becomes easy for them. Everything becomes easy for them, their entire life becomes easy for them.

00:12:41--> 00:13:32

Even brothers and sisters their money regardless of how much wealth they have, it becomes easy for them. How do you know you have bought a car you have blessing in your money? This is how you know have you ever met someone who is working at a low job being paid minimum wage, the minimum amount, but that person is content with each and every single dollar and at the same time they can buy everything they need to live a healthy Islamic life. This is a person who has Baraka in his money. As for the US for the converse, the person who doesn't have this Baraka, Allah azza wa jal tells us what am men bahala was stelton What can the listener for Sen yes sudo who littler surah s are the

00:13:32--> 00:14:11

one who lies who cheats, and the word is definite means a person who is far from the religion. They say I don't need to pray. I don't need to fast I have the money but I don't need to go and make the Hajj or Umrah what is Allah azza wa jal saying, for them, everything is difficult. And so this is a person they could have the largest bank account yet they still complain they do not have enough. They could be driving the fanciest cars living in the fanciest homes and still in their heart. It is like a pit from the pits of the hellfire.

00:14:12--> 00:14:40

And so brothers and sisters, you know you have Baraka in your life. When you are content with everything that Ally's soldier has given you. We continue how and another verse Allah azza wa jal tells us in Surah ba her woman out of the victory for him, none of whom are you certain bunker, one shooter who Yeoman piano Tiana, that whosoever leaves off my worship.

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

Notice that Allah azza wa jal does not say whoever leaves off my religion, because there are people who believe, but they do not pray. They do not do the righteous deed. What happens to this person? They will live a hard constraint life ever

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

Everything is difficult for them, they will have children that will grow up and be evil to them.

00:15:07--> 00:15:12

Their marriages will be evil filled with problems.

00:15:13--> 00:15:24

And at the same time, if you think it stops there, in the same as sort of Bihar, these people, they will rise on the Day of Judgment blind.

00:15:25--> 00:16:06

And this is a humiliation that Allah azza wa jal gives to those who refuse to follow His guidance. Let us go now brothers and sisters to the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu it was you send them whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was faced with a problem and affliction? How did he deal with it? Do you find that majority of people, whenever they're faced with a problem, what is the first thing they do? They will run to a TV, they will run to the internet, they will go and socialize they will find something else to do. Listen. What did the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did?

00:16:07--> 00:16:41

I shut up the Allahu anhu tells us that he used to fazzy are in a Sala. He used to rush to prayer, rush to prayer. This word fuzzier. It means that this was the number one priority to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Whenever he was faced with a problem, the first thing he would think of the first thing he would do is he would go and pray. This is why in another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us

00:16:42--> 00:17:20

behavior dealer, he told below the law one go comfort us with the prayer give the karma let us be comforted by the Salah. In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes Allah and tells us jewellery let Cora Cora taurine for Salah My eyes have been comforted, because of Sala in prayer, my eyes are comforted My heart is at ease. I find peace and tranquility in my life through Sala brothers and sisters.

00:17:21--> 00:17:39

At this time, we want to also understand what do the oleana What do the scholars the side of how did they teach us to find satisfaction in this life? And hesson anniversary yo rahima Hello Darla, one of the great students of the tab your own tells us

00:17:41--> 00:18:06

do three things and you are guaranteed happiness. Number one, recite the Quran. Because the person who is far from the book of Allah azza wa jal is going to by default, be far from everything else. Number two, the Quran Allah remember remembrance of Allah azza wa jal number three of Sala

00:18:07--> 00:18:28

and it has an Al basri your Rahim Allah continues to tell us that if a person still cannot find happiness, after doing these three things, realize that that doors of happiness have been closed for that person. There is no hope for that person anymore.

00:18:29--> 00:18:37

A shahana Islam Ibn taymiyyah Rahim Allah, one of the greatest scholars of the self tells us

00:18:38--> 00:18:54

in this dunya there is a agenda. And in the era, there is also a agenda, the agenda of this dunya the agenda of this dunya is very bad. It is worship

00:18:55--> 00:19:01

and the gender of the hora is agenda that you and I are striving for throughout our lives.

00:19:02--> 00:19:41

And so brothers and sisters, we ask a lot as though agenda to give us the agenda of this dunya and also reward us with the agenda of the brothers and sisters. These are the words that I leave you with in the first part of the hookah and when I stand up again be it nilla heater Ireland I wish to summarize all that has been said to you here in this short reminder fennesz Allahu la theme but a bit are still carrying an eh I don't know what he added agenda according to smart stuff it'll law How do you welcome your phones and stuff hearing stuff it all in who will have a little Raheem

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa ala early here

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

Also heavy woman was murdered.

00:20:03--> 00:20:24

In order to summarize all that has been said to you, we go to one area in salt or rod. As a matter of fact, it is only half an ayah five words. Allah azza wa jal tells us, Allah be the karela he pathoma in Norco lube, five words.

00:20:25--> 00:20:52

Is it not true this word Allah, it means that Allah azza wa jal wants our attention. So we pay attention now, Allah, the Vickery law, is it not true that it is in the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal that the heart finds peace and tranquility. It is in the remembrance of Allah, a person finds peace and tranquility.

00:20:53--> 00:21:47

Brothers and sisters, you and I do not need a theoretical lecture, to tell us how it feels to do a good deed. You all know every person in this message knows what it feels to do a good deed. At this very moment, we are all fasting. Our bodies are tired, we are struggling, we have work, we have school, we have responsibilities, we have to wake up early for the school. However, don't you find yourself that when it comes time for the if thorough, and you have your efore Don't you feel a sense of gratification and happiness that you have done a good deed? When a person wakes up for Salatu fetcher, and he prays fed, you're on time he comes out of his sleep, he sacrifices that time. The

00:21:47--> 00:21:55

rest of his day. He is happy. His heart is strong and filled with the spirit of Amen.

00:21:56--> 00:22:00

This is why even hijo Rahim Allah tells us in his family,

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

he tells us what law he threw my one law he thermowell ly the person who stands up during the nights in prayer will law he they will never feel tired. Meaning the person spiritually will never be tired, there he man will always be strong.

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

And the same is of the opposite. You and I all know as there are su sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in an authentic hadith kulu Benny Adam hapa on each and every single human being will always make mistake sin. And you all know what it feels to commit a sin. You start to feel the guilt, you start to feel sorrow, you start to feel sad, you start to feel regret, that you've ever fallen into that sin in the first place. And so brothers and sisters I conclude

00:22:59--> 00:23:28

in order to find peace, happiness, tranquility, in this dunya and in the earth era, a person must be worshipping Allah azzawajal throughout their life, doing all the righteous deeds they can, doing all the good deeds they can to please Allah azza wa jal and abstaining, as much as they can from the harem.

00:23:29--> 00:23:40

Even the work and the jobs that you do, it is a worship from Allah azza wa jal Do you know, the Dalai Lama teach us and they tell us

00:23:41--> 00:24:29

that there is no difference. If a man goes to work, and he goes there for the purpose of providing for himself and his family and his children and his wife, he goes to work for this purpose. There is no difference if that man said, I am going to work or I am going to worship Allah azza wa jal, Allahu Akbar, for this beautiful religion. Each and every single hotword step can be in the sight in the worship of Allah azza wa jal. These are the words that I leave you with brothers and sisters, may Allah so it will constantly fill our lives with obedience, righteousness and good deeds and forgive us for our mistakes. Let us and Peace and blessings to the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:24:29--> 00:24:29

sallam

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

as Allah azzawajal tells us in the LA Mola eco Tahoe your saloon arland nebby Yeah, are you Hello Xena and also Lou it he was a limo.
