smil Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah He of Paulo Salah woman while at Bart's and Mr. de la, he was about a cartoon. And welcome back brothers and sisters, let's all continue today is another very, very beautiful verse of the entire core and perhaps one of the most beautiful verses of the entire poor end. And we're also going to learn today where suta note gets its name from, at least according to many of them will fest soon and we're going to have inshallah, a renewed sense of love and appreciation for our Creator. So let's get right into it inshallah, cuz we certainly don't want to make these videos too too long. I know they've been roughly 45 minutes an

00:03:26--> 00:04:15

hour was yesterday's session, but hopefully it's been fruitful. And hopefully the the ultimate goal at the end of the day is to educate to clarify some misunderstandings about certain aspects of our Deen and to also answer some questions as well what the law is. A law continues, and he tells us when a man men come and marry widows from amongst you. Now, why why would Allah say that? Because, you know, unfortunately, when somebody is divorced, and you know, women get the brunt of this most of the time, when they're divorce, we treat them in society as though you know, they carry around some sort of, you know, disease or some sort of there's a stigma that's attached to them that do No,

00:04:15--> 00:04:54

no, stay away from that she was divorced, she was married, or she has two kids, or Look, she's this age. She's that age. No, no, no, we don't want you to be involved in that. It's like the stigma that culture and society created and and Muslims are not exempted from this. As a matter of fact, in some ways, it's even worse in Muslim culture. The moment we hear that a woman was married, and she's divorced, and she's seeking marriage again, is I gonna stay away from that. So Allah stands up for women like this. So whether she's widowed, or she's divorced, the point is, she's alone and once upon a time in our life, she was married. And you know what's really interesting, all the wives of

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

the Prophet are they slept with Selim. were married at some point except a shout out to Lorena

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

So if you're looking at this from a Sunnah perspective and a religious lens, then it could almost one could almost say that perhaps it might be more beloved to Allah to marry women who were previously married before. Perhaps that could be the case. But the point here is this. It's the stigma. It's the culture that we've created around men and women, but particularly women because I don't for whatever reason, they suffer from this kind of rejection and this kind of stigma more so than the men do. And that has to change. That has to change. We'll talk about this a little bit more in a second.

00:05:39--> 00:06:21

When kill a man being calm was solid, he luminary, belgie, calm, and even the righteous from amongst the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What is so what Ally's highlighting here is if somebody comes from a good family, their religious they take their Deen, seriously. You know, they're a good person, they have this overall, they're they're very grounded, not only in their Deen, but they come with a full and complete package in the sense that they're not just an awesome, awesome Muslim, you know, they're going to the massage, it's the praying to memorize Torah. That's one part. The other part is they're trustworthy, they're kind, they're patient, they have all of the other qualities of

00:06:21--> 00:07:04

a good person. And both of these individuals are mesh together that saw the hain, they're just an overall well rounded, good person and good Muslim, you come across people like that, you notice a lead doesn't say except if they're out. There's no exception, a lead doesn't say, Okay, if they're not from your culture, if they're not from your background, if they're not the same skin color, there's no exception. Unless as as long as that's a good person. And there's really no reason for you to reject or to refuse that kind of proposal, then you should marry them. Allah encourages those types of marriages. Don't nitpick, nobody is perfect. Don't nitpick their qualities. So yeah,

00:07:04--> 00:07:54

everything is good. But I mean, did you see his shoe size? I don't know if I can deal with that. If you see, you know, the way that she sits? Yeah, I just I can't do it. No, you stop nitpicking. You know, they don't like spicy food, and I grew up with spicy food, Nah, it's not gonna work out. Unless I saw it. Keep in mind solid. They're just they're a good person overall, they have a good balance of qualities that a lot appreciates both both religiously as well as worldly life as well. etiquettes, right, what he meant equal email equal, and also female slaves. So now keep in mind and context here, you have to remember that when people were once upon a time in slavery, right, they

00:07:54--> 00:08:36

have no access to education. And you can actually watch YouTube videos, there are recordings of black slaves. When slavery was abolished in the United States, the slaves now had nothing to do, they were never educated, they had no skill, the only thing they knew how to do was obey their masters so that all they knew was seminar now we'll alternate to their master to their slave owners. That's it. So when they were released, they became. And these are some of their words they described, it's like, we felt like we were just sort of cattle, just roaming around the streets trying to figure out what do we do now. So this is why lust stands up for them. And Allah protects

00:08:36--> 00:09:26

them, it says they have a right to be considered at least have to be looked at for marriage. You know, there's that that's the bottom line here. So you have three different categories. The problem here is that it's the support system that surrounds these categories of people and other categories as well. It's the support system. You know, very often one of the mistakes that we make in our in our communities is, for example, massage did we expect and hope for that the massage would provide every single resource and service to the community. And although that would be ideal, in any community you would want because the masjid is the center of the community. Like for example, a lot

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

of you don't know me, except that you probably see me in msgid somewhere. You and I, you've never studied with me except we were sitting in a classroom somewhere in the world, right? And I didn't know you and I could have never met you. So the masjid is a core part of the community. It's It's literally the heart of the community. But it cannot beat every beat and need of the community because why? massages, for the most part just simply don't have the kind of support or the capacity to do those things. So when you hear of an Oregon

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

that's helping people connect. that's helping couples, you know, find someone or counsel through their problems, somebody who's single help them, find them a potential candidate. When you see organizations that are trying to facilitate and fill in a gap in society, guess what? We should support those those organizations. We should support helplines. We should support organizations that do marriage counseling and different types of levels of therapy, depression and anxiety. If these are some of the focal points and massage should endorse these organizations, at least they should be able, if they can provide it, at least be able to tell members of their community go to this place

00:10:48--> 00:11:32

or that place. Go to this at least endorse it and encourage people to support those organizations. Right. You know, there's, there's this kind of perception that, yeah, we have a lot of massage. When when it comes to social programs and support programs for families and all of the different problems and hardships that they go through. We do have here and there and it's, you know, hamdulillah more and more every single year, you're hearing about a new organization tackling a particular problem, to have any, you know, orphans, you know, women's shelter helplines, more and more services are coming out every every year, we should support that. So to rely on one area is my point to do it

00:11:32--> 00:12:18

all. We simply don't have the capacity, the support the financial support to do it all. And so we should, my point is, is that when you look at some of these problems, just keep that in mind that maybe your local message, your will, your local message, just simply can't do everything. But there are other organizations right within the realm of your community, right within that vicinity somewhere that can fill in some of those gaps. And so it's a collective effort. Everybody's supporting and everybody's working and helping each other. But whether that happens or not, that's a whole nother issue. May Allah give us strength? He Kunal fukumura, a Yoni Houma, la hoomin, fundly,

00:12:18--> 00:13:02

if you are poor, or you're worried, how am I going to get married? Am I going to support a wife? How am I going to pay rent? How am I going to do this stuff? And especially in 2020 minutes of a pandemic? This is one of the biggest, biggest subjects biggest, biggest worries, especially for those who have planned a wedding, you know, six, seven months ago, and it couldn't happen because of this pandemic. Now, you're wondering, how am I going to survive, I just lost my job, or my company shut down or you know, income has reduced significantly? How am I going to do this? What is LSA, E Fo e akuna fukumura, yoga knee human la hoomin. fugly Allah will give you strength and independence

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

from his blessings and his virtues. Allah will help you.

00:13:07--> 00:13:20

When you're talking about I need assistance allies right there. The problem is, is that how many people know how to make that connection and utilize the services that Allah provides? That's the problem here. Unless I'm right here.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

I'm right here.

00:13:23--> 00:14:08

You're worried about all of those things, don't you worry. Just stay with me. Stay connected to me, I'll get you through it. And there are 1000s millions and millions of stories like this. As a matter of fact, probably every single couple on the planet that married for the right reasons, you know, ultimately, at the end of the day, to start a family to make things Hello. And to please their Creator has a story where I thought marriage would have not worked. We got married, we both were jobless. We got married, we had like 10 cents in our bank accounts. We got married, we lived with our parents for the first 10 years. We didn't know if we could survive. And somehow alleges, just

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

made it easy alleges gave us the strength to continue to work. income was low, but it was still coming in.

00:14:16--> 00:14:29

And we just were able to scrape by every single time, every single time. Now many couples I've talked to who have lost their jobs, and are trying their best to find some form of employment from home,

00:14:31--> 00:15:00

you know, or they've gotten COVID. So they couldn't go anywhere. Even if they had a job. They were isolated for some time. And for whatever reason, you know, the government support wasn't there. And so they're trying to figure out where's the next paycheck coming from? How am I going to pay rent, I'm going to buy groceries, all of these things. And somehow allegis makes it easy for them. somehow they're able to work somehow they're able to get some extra hours here and there. somehow they're able to scrape up some savings, something happens and they're able to get by that's

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

What Allah is referring to, specifically when it comes to marriage. If financial struggles are what you're worried about, as long as you work hard and you put an effort, Allah says, I'll take care of you. But you got to try. This is not a ticket to say okay, well, I don't really need a job because Allah provides so let's get married. No, you've got to work. But the results I've said this before the verdict, the results the outcome, that's a lost territory. Well, lo West zero 19 Allah is Ever vast and he knows everything his bounties, his blessings, his virtues, what he provides, there's a little bit of there's a little bit for everyone, so don't you worry less I can just overlook and

00:15:43--> 00:16:27

ignore you and take care of the rest of mankind. No, Allah is Wes there. He's vast His mercy was see Aquila Shea. You know, it expands to everything. So don't you worry. A low is there. Well, you start if you live in LA and you don't any care and had you near Humala home in fugly while your staff your staff if it's sterile fair for somebody that is trying to be decent, you know, they had a bad past, or they were up to no good at once upon a time. I try to be a good person now. You're trying to be from amongst the solly hain they're changing. Let's see a staff lady doing any question but they can't find anybody to marry because why their history keeps. They have their history keeps coming

00:16:27--> 00:16:27


00:16:28--> 00:16:46

People was like, Yeah, I know you. I know. You're in the masjid now. And I know you pray. Amen. I remember you back in days, back in those days. No, no, dude. I'm not gonna like let you marry my cousin, my sister. No. I don't want you in my family. No, no offense. That's what our staff if they're trying though,

00:16:48--> 00:16:52

there, it's not perfect. Have you ever heard those couples where

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

I want to marry him. But he's not praying.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

But I know he's trying.

00:16:59--> 00:17:12

I see him trying. And his parents told me he tries. It's not perfect. The ledger is like it's there. And sometimes it's just fetchers, like at 1pm. But he's still praised.

00:17:13--> 00:17:49

So the timings are way off. But I know there's good in him. That's when the a staff, Allah is saying don't lose sight of that. When somebody is genuinely trying their best to better themselves for the sake of marriage. Don't lose sight of that stuff takes time. I would also include even in marriage as well. You know, it's not perfect. Yeah, sure. You know, you try to go to classes, you try to learn you try to attend every conference out there. But sometimes you just can't. It's okay. There are other means to being good and being

00:17:50--> 00:18:10

pleasing to Allah. There's other ways of doing it. So if one area doesn't work out, at least be genuine and sincere with yourself and with your marriage. Take care of your responsibilities. Yeah, he works. She works. They're trying to make ends meet. But yeah, we can buy a house. Yeah, we're still living with our parents. It's okay. Just keep going. That's your staff.

00:18:11--> 00:18:50

Now he didn't want to get hacked up near Humala home and father law says it again again until unless Allah azza wa jal blesses them from his virtues, while Athena bata Hoon and kita by malakut, a man who come and ask for those slaves that are trying to make up some kind of agreement with their masters so that they could be released so that they could marry so they could start their own life. Al keytab here is not an actual book, but it's when the slave is trying to work out some kind of agreement with their master to say, hey, look, you know, release me on these conditions. I want to be able to get married, I want to be able to get a job I want to be able to do things independently.

00:18:50--> 00:19:29

That's what Al Khattab is talking about here. me my medical a medical Cathy boom, Alexa, so write down and agree with it. Agree with their request in Ireland to him fee him higher, or if you see that there's good in them. Again, going back to how we started this this episode. Remember, slaves had no education, the only thing they had was other slaves. So you know, they'll sit there, it'll talk like Yeah, man, you know, we got to get out of here. This is not our life, we don't deserve this. So that kind of supporting each other back and forth this way. So at the end of the day, when the master sees that this person is still good, you know, they're not going to be a menace to

00:19:29--> 00:19:48

society that I can go out there and commit crimes because again, they don't know any better. They're not going to go there and start stealing and robbing and committing one crime after another as long as you can see that they can be an overall decent person and they'll work hard to better themselves. Fine. You should agree to that and you should allow them and free them.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Forget evolution forgettable in Ireland to infield player. To whom in Melilla he led the attack on I love this verse. Allah says to the slave owners give from the wealth that

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

lug a view to the slaves, get them started. get them started. I'm not trying to compare slavery to children and parent relationships. But parents take lesson here. When your kids want to get married, and it's going to be a struggle in the first couple of years and you're in a position to kind of get them started in life. You should do that.

00:20:26--> 00:21:02

It's a good thing and a lot appreciates and a love rewards and Allah loves those that help others. You should try to do that. Again, I'm not comparing slavery, to parenting parrington children relationship, but it's the concept. It's about I need to get my life started. I need to get on my own two feet, but I can't do it alone. The slave owner is being told here, the wealth that Allah gave you, you should give some of that to the slaves so that they could get a head start. So the lesson for us is, if we can help somebody do that, we should try to do that.

00:21:06--> 00:21:57

Okay, well, I took Rahu fatality Komal Bihar in Adana Taha sooner or later better, who will hire to dunya. And don't you dare force or compel young girls, these are the young female slaves either to be called to prostitute. You know, until this day, this is very much a life where young girls are being kidnapped, that whole, you know, issue of human trafficking, human trafficking, it is strong, and it is well and alive till this day. I think I read a statistic A while ago, like over 120,000 young girls just in the United States alone are kidnapped and smuggled through human trafficking every year. That's astonishing. That's unbelievable. I can't imagine globally what those statistics

00:21:57--> 00:22:32

are like. And Allah is saying, anybody who's four, who enforces this on these young girls to do this in Adana to house sooner, when they're really just trying to seek protection, that house sooner, these anglers are just trying to find protection. They're trying to find, you know, some sense of security in their life. So there'll be placed in a situation where they're like, okay, fine, I guess I'll do it. I guess I'll do it. I mean, I have no other choice. There's no other way I can get paid. There's no other way that I can seek protection. Unless says that don't do this to these young girls,

00:22:33--> 00:23:16

who who are honorable hire to dunia so that you can get your own fair share of this worldly life? Well, maybe you could have been a less says that whoever forces these young women to do this, these sorts of acts for in the linemen bear the ikura hin once they can break the shackles of this kind of behavior, prostitution and other forms, for in the law have been buried in the hospital Rahim Allah will forgive these women. Don't you worry, Allah will forgive them. Because it's not their fault. It's not their fault that they've been forced to do certain acts and engage in this kind of behavior. It's not their farts fault Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he will forgive them. Well,

00:23:16--> 00:24:00

I'll cut the ends and La come area Team mobila team one method Amina Latina Holloman, popularly called mama we're a little a little mucked up in Allah says there's a beautiful area by the way, Allah says that I have sent down a lake home yet in all of my a mobile unit that are so clear and so explicit, so meaning everything that I've sent to you so far, it's so clear, you can't twist or turn or misinterpret none of these things. Like you know, that's one of the beautiful things about soda to know, it's very difficult to twist any of the verses. This particular surah Allah wants us to discover light, light, he meant the light of Allah Subhana Allah wants us to do this. So it's one of

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

those suitors that when it comes to its Tafseer it's, it's understood. It's pretty clear. It's pretty straightforward. One method I mean, a lesbian a Holloman public woman, also examples of those who rejected and turned away from this stuff before you will be able to little motor pain, and also a profound reminder for those who are mucked up the conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, Mel Eva, is the kind of reminder that settles and resonates with you for the rest of your life. It's different from just Victor. Victor is one layer below Moldova, Victor is our reminder. But we need lots of F cattle Don't we? We need to be reminded over and over and over and over but Mauer ilva you

00:24:47--> 00:24:50

hear it once? And it's it's there, it resonates with you.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

So Allah says all that I've taught you so far should be a mower info. Now here's where the the title of the episode comes from.

00:25:01--> 00:25:08

Allahu neurol semer what you want out of Allah is the note the light of the skies and the earth.

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

Here's the first lesson.

00:25:12--> 00:25:37

Allah is telling us that, you know, when you take the time to reflect on the skies and the earth, if you don't have enough men, then the sky becomes nothing more than just the sky is blue. Then it transitions into, you know, black and gets dark, and then the cycle continues again. Whoa, whoa, that's what happens.

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

But when you have the light of the man in you,

00:25:41--> 00:25:59

when you have faith in you, the sky just becomes a hotbed to you now, you start seeing these shades of color, he likes a panel law. Wow. The clouds how they move. Look, when it rains, look how everything discolors starts getting dark and gray, it looks frightening. And it's right above my head.

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

And then it transitions to this beautiful pitch dark. And in between it there is this there's these beautiful decorations of stars. And, you know, the other day a couple weeks ago, Mars was the closest to earth and I tried to capture some images off my cell phone and I was just like blown away what cell phones could do these days. It just kind of did this sort of autofocus and it captures at least the you know the shape of Mars that captured something some kind of image from It was amazing. It was just like Subhan Allah what Allah Allah What did you create out there in our solar system? what is out there so panela

00:26:38--> 00:27:27

millions and millions of miles away? Oh Allah you you know will love yard and one two. Terrible you know, and we have no clue. We don't have a clue what's out there. We barely know what's here. That's a long notice semi whitey well out. Now let's get to tell us a little bit about this node, when a lot describes himself as the light or the node of the skies and the earth. There's a lot of weird stuff about this. You know, some scholar I don't even know if their scholars really but there are stories that this light is actually the sun and the moon is no authentic connection or source to that. Some say the nodal of Allah is his hand is his presence in the sky. That's his nor it's kind

00:27:27--> 00:28:09

of strange but again, authentic evidence nothing really. Look how Allah will describe it though. It's just you'll never read anything like this anywhere else. Method Oh naughty the example of a laws light his nor chemische cat. Here's number one Miche cat Misha cat is an indent in the wall. There's an indent in the wall. You ever see like those old movies where there's no electricity in the house so they have to light candles. And so the light a candle that kind of stick it into this sort of indent shelf type thing in the wall. And it has like a little little roof at the top a little mud roof like this Like this shape. So when the candle is in the middle, it kind of you know

00:28:09--> 00:28:25

it pierces off this particular you know, shade or roof and then it just eliminates this glow into the room. So that's Miche cats. Allah says his node is in this indent.

00:28:27--> 00:28:30

fee him Yes. There is a little light in the middle.

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

And Mr. McAfee Sujatha

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

the light the candle, it's in this glass vessel, some kind of bottle of some sort. Okay,

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

Zhu Jia, Jia, Zhu, Jia Jia Touka and Kalka Boone do Li

00:28:49--> 00:28:50

this light that

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

eliminates from this glass vessel.

00:28:55--> 00:29:07

It is like a star but it has dude re the brilliance and the incredible incredible brightness of the star of the star

00:29:08--> 00:29:59

is is excessively bright. There's nothing like so unless you know one there's one thing you know, Cal cub or ninja I should say ninja is another word for stars. ninjam is the kind of stars that you see but you don't see the brightest but you see its presence co cub and do V is like the star and it's excessively bright. You're just like, oh, wow, that's duty. So what do we have so far? With an indent in the wall? We have a candle or light in the middle and that light is inside a glass vessel and the brilliance and the brightness of this light is brighter than stars. Wow, okay. You do mean shadow. This light is being fueled you do it's being fueled from a tree

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

Okay, this tree is more about aka. It's a blessing a tree is a tuna tin, it's a blessing olive tree. LaShawn Pia Tijuana habia, there's no eastern part of where this tree is, there's no western part of where this tree is. So when you're in the forest, you can go to the eastern part of the force to find a street or the western part of the forest to find a street. So where's the tree, it's not in the center, it's nowhere in the forest. So this is the kind of tree you'll never find it's nowhere in the woods.

00:30:32--> 00:30:52

You can use a to how you will be the oil that's extracted from this zaytoun these olives. You know, like many parts of the world, particularly in shaman in Palestine and you know, in the Middle East, you get some of the richest most authentic olive oil on the planet when it's extracted from these olives.

00:30:53--> 00:31:11

Les says that the tree wants to ignite the oil from these all if it wants to ignite into fire. Well, while I'm Tom says Who knows, but no fire touches it, but it wants to ignite, Northern Ireland nor you have light upon light.

00:31:12--> 00:31:38

So you have one layer of light that's already lit. And then you see that there's another attempt for light to be ignited. So you'll have light upon light if this light ignites. Okay. Yeah, de la huli. Naughty, he may, Allah will guide his light to whomever He wills. Let's pause. Let's go back to the beginning now. And let's really understand what this area is teaching us alone or to send our way it will.

00:31:39--> 00:31:45

Allah is the knower of the heavens and the earth. I want you to think about you and I

00:31:46--> 00:32:01

where do we find light? spiritual light. not talking about just light bulbs in this No, no, no, no. Where do we because the a is talking spiritually religiously. So where do you I find spiritual light

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

in our hearts, right.

00:32:06--> 00:32:12

So Allah says there is no gold in the semi wet and in the earth and on earth.

00:32:13--> 00:32:18

And the way that we interpret that is less talking about spiritual light.

00:32:19--> 00:32:39

And so I have spiritual light too. That's my Amen. Where does amen reside? right here right here. Okay. Method uno de commish get the new is like an indent. Okay, so if there's light in my heart, see our rib cage

00:32:40--> 00:32:47

slat shape, just like what I showed you some kind of indent. The heart is sitting behind that rib cage. Okay.

00:32:49--> 00:33:05

And Alinea Spa houfy zoogeography Fie hem is back on ulmus battlefield Sujatha. So in this vessel, my ribs, there's this light and this light is in a zoo Georgia it's in some kind of vessel or container.

00:33:07--> 00:33:08

Where's our even

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

in our hearts?

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

So is this a a talking about the men in our hearts? That's actually the the remembrance of Allah.

00:33:20--> 00:33:20


00:33:21--> 00:33:33

A lot. So Adele is saying to us, okay, when you have a man in you, that is your connection to you, and the light that is above the heavens and the earth.

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

So when you have, amen. Faith,

00:33:40--> 00:33:50

you have you have something that really truly connects you to Allah. There's nothing on the planet that does that. Okay.

00:33:51--> 00:34:04

As soon as Sujata two can enter her cabin god, it's brighter than stars and it has this brilliance that eliminates from you. When people have Amen. What do you see?

00:34:05--> 00:34:17

What do you see when someone has amen? You see the most beautiful human being on the planet. You don't have to have as described the Prophet Ali's thought was them that his face looked more beautiful than the full moon.

00:34:19--> 00:34:51

And some sahabas they couldn't even look at him. He was just too beautiful. It was like oh my god. If I look at you, I'm just gonna be I'm gonna be stuck like this staring at you. You chose hula You're so beautiful. What is beauty? The essence of his beauty comes from where is a man that stands up every night to Allah. He has a sajida that is longer than all of our prayers in a day. One sajida is longer than all of our solid in one day.

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

Samantha talks to a lot

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

is a man that has a connection with Allah. No other human being had. This was

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

A man who was a walking poor and

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

so when you when I get or inherit some of that

00:35:08--> 00:35:20

we carry the same light from within. Okay? This is all really beautiful so far. So this light is our is everything to do with our email, it's in our heart and our heart is protected. Okay, fine.

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

You are doing Cejudo it's being fueled by a blessing tree, a blessing blessing olive tree.

00:35:29--> 00:35:34

what fuels our Amen, the light in our hearts, what fuels that?

00:35:35--> 00:35:44

It's our a bad debt. Right? The more we pray, it's our solace. It's our core, and it's our count. It's all of those things.

00:35:45--> 00:35:54

But here's the thing that shall pay attention while al-harbi there's no eastern side or western side of it. In other words, are there any limitations to the

00:35:55--> 00:36:23

we can get that kind of remembrance and fuel for our hearts, anywhere we are any part of the planet we go, we can get that connection with Allah. And nowadays it's even easier because you can carry the whole entire port and you can carry all of Islam just on your phone in the palm of your hands. So it's not just restricted to the one side of the earth or the other you can be anywhere and this light is with you.

00:36:24--> 00:36:37

You have no excuse now it's with you. And if you don't have a phone or you can carry that knowledge with you when it's time for sada you're sitting in an airport somewhere What do we do? We pray

00:36:38--> 00:37:16

when we start off travel. What's the first thing we say? Allahumma in Nana's Okay, a few safaree. Now her albuterol what taqwa we start saying the Dora of traveling. Everything is like get dressed, you say a door. You get undressed, you say a door. You go into bathroom, you say a door, you come out you say a door. Before you eat after you eat, for you drink after you drink before you sleep when you wake up, everything revolves around this light. You're constantly feeding your heart with light upon light upon light, see where I'm going with this? Just pay attention.

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

You can say to her you will do well, I will and Tim says who now.

00:37:23--> 00:37:34

Now Allah says that the oil is trying to ignite itself, but no fire will touch it. Like nothing will ignite it. So what's that talk all about?

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

Go back to the beginning. Now you have this vessel.

00:37:39--> 00:37:48

If you have a glass vessel, and you let it sit there and never clean it or touch it, what eventually happens to the glass

00:37:50--> 00:37:54

dust starts to accumulate. It might even discolor

00:37:55--> 00:38:02

Now you try to light it with more and more remembrance silhouette portrait and

00:38:03--> 00:38:08

but there's this dirt that accumulated over this light

00:38:09--> 00:38:11

it's trying to get in, and it can't.

00:38:13--> 00:38:25

So what Ally's referring to here is that if you don't take care and nurture and feed this light in you, then your heart will become decayed.

00:38:27--> 00:38:44

This is captured in another sort of by the way. Well letter Kunal keleti, in an s la, don't be like people who forgot Allah, meaning they stopped feeding their heart with this light. You see, this is where you have to really respect reverts.

00:38:46--> 00:38:48

When reverts come to Islam,

00:38:49--> 00:39:36

it takes them time before they discover this light. It takes them some time because they have to peel away a lot of habits and history. You know, that they were part of that were involved in that they lived with. And as they continue that journey, you start hearing the stories. My God Islam changed my life. It was just one thing I heard the then and I just I was moved. Go on YouTube. And just type in non Muslim reactions to hearing the poor and hearing the event and look at some of those videos. It'll blow your mind. Because why? A little bit of light is tapping away cracking that shell around the heart is why you forgot a lot. You never connected with him. So this light is

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

starting to penetrate. And when you feel it and you taste it, you start to this brilliance comes out of you and you're just like, oh man, there's no problem in this world that can bother me. There's no stress on this planet that gets to me. My God divorce marriage and everything in between. I can handle it all. I'm ready for it all. That's what this does.

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

Do you notice when this a comes? This is the thing, these are some of the things that we probably ignore. We focus a lot on the Tafseer. That's great. You're part of that is, look where Allah put it.

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

It's verse number 35. But what came before it, what were the verses, it was all about people that you should marry that should be considered for marriage, protecting slaves. So it's like, once you peel off any stigma in society, any hatred for people any stereotype and discriminate, once you do all of that, and you start being just with people like this, the master with his slaves, you start being just with people,

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

especially when they have good in them,

00:40:44--> 00:41:15

then who else says a lot, to a lot now, now you have this, like, now you're ready to get it. And on top of that, you keep fueling this light. So you have this vessel that's accumulated dust, decay, and discolor. But you keep wiping it, because you want the lights the brilliance to continue to shine. So that's what solid does. That's why we pray five times a day, or at least one of the wisdoms is that from one solid to another, our hearts quickly start to develop that decay and dust.

00:41:16--> 00:41:34

This is called fast sukoon by the way fish spawn fish spoon is when you leave like a fruit or something and you just leave it there. After four or five days what happens to the fruit like if you leave a peach out for a week, what happens to you'll start to see this like fungus and decay, start growing.

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

What happens when you don't pray.

00:41:38--> 00:42:00

And if you pray, you don't pray on time. When you pray on time, you're not praying sincerely like what happens to that stuff, you start to lose that nor that light starts to just extinguish slowly, or the brightness starts to slowly slowly dwindle. Unless as it's trying to ignite like things are trying to get in there to ignite this, but

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

it's too much sin.

00:42:04--> 00:42:12

In a lot of the surah highlighted some of those sins for us. Remember yesterday's episode, guys, about the eyes.

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

You're watching too much hot on stuff, man. So this light can get in you.

00:42:19--> 00:42:23

You can sit in a in front of a website for three hours.

00:42:25--> 00:43:09

When it comes to listening to a sutra or reading one for that matter. You can't do it for not even three minutes. It's too much. You can't listen to a YouTube video for five seconds. But you can watch other videos for five hours, a lot of decay. You've got to be continued to battle through that. What we're learning from this area is to keep the brilliance and nor have a man shining within is a constant, everlasting exercise that we have to continue with our entire life. That is why Allah tells you I need you to pray every day you have to do that.

00:43:10--> 00:43:33

Because look what Allah says, No to Allah, no light upon light. There are two types of light right? light on the outside and light from within. And light on the outside. As we take care of our bodies don't we protect it, we feed it, we nurture it, everything. Everything on the outside, we take care of shower, we clean we do all of these things.

00:43:34--> 00:43:35

But then the other nor

00:43:36--> 00:43:40

is it needs the same sort of nurture and care.

00:43:41--> 00:43:52

So you have one light and you're adding more light to this. So you have a complete brilliance of both lights, both forms of lights, the inner and outer light.

00:43:54--> 00:44:15

Now at the end of the day, no matter what you and I do look what Allah says it yeah de la julio de Allah will guide anybody to this light, Manisha whomever he wants. So ultimately, at the end of the day for us to see this light, to experience this light to nurture this light, to keep it running within us that actually comes from Allah.

00:44:17--> 00:44:37

Allah will give this light to whomever he wishes. Even the people you thought would never discover this light of luck and make them discover how many stories of like revert stories have you heard people you least expected you least expected will ever come to Islam became Muslim.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

Now you'll hear like politicians who stood up for most of their career against Muslims and Islamophobia. And they put out policies to target Muslims to target Islam. And then at some point in their life, everything just went the other direction.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

And now all of a sudden they became Muslim.

00:45:02--> 00:45:11

Now they're fighting for the complete opposite the rights and protection of Muslims. Love will give this like to whom ever he wishes. So students,

00:45:12--> 00:45:18

when you are Muslim, and you acknowledge you're a Muslim and you live like a Muslim,

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

don't take the stuff for granted.

00:45:22--> 00:45:26

That's light that Allah gave you. That is light from him.

00:45:27--> 00:45:37

Our job now is to nurture this light to show Allah, Oh Allah, I appreciate what you gave me. I'm going to pray. I'm going to keep nurturing this light in me.

00:45:38--> 00:45:46

While durable love will unsettledness Allah is the one that gives examples to all mankind will love will be equally shaped in Ireland, Allah has knowledge of everything.

00:45:47--> 00:46:33

So with that being said, that is, for the most part, the majority of the relena say this is the area where sulit ignore gets its name from. So we've talked about the suta of light. Think of verse number 35 of soda tindora. There is no verse like it. By the way, guys, what I just shared with you about this a is just a bird's eye view. We haven't even talked about what note is in this area. And what I showed you a loved one has says about and how scholars define it. We talked about nothing, we just kind of zoomed over as if we're standing on top of a mountain we're staring at this verse and we could just see these little, you know, you know, just little points of beauty about the verse

00:46:33--> 00:46:33

that's it.

00:46:35--> 00:47:21

Hopefully one day, we really dive into this verse and really discover what this light is of Allah subhanho wa Taala such beautiful examples such beautiful parable, such beautiful imagery found in this area. So we ask a lot, so which will preserve and protect the light in our hearts. This vessel that we have that we carry with us everywhere we go. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala don't allow that vessel to become decayed or corrupted in any way, shape or form. And if it does, give us the strength tackle and break that shell of decay and dirt alone. I mean, everybody needs to know the A of note. Every Muslim needs to know this a, you know how we all know ayatul kursi This should be

00:47:21--> 00:47:59

right next to a taco to see in our hearts. We should know this verse just as we know it will quotacy that's how important that's how beautiful it is. That's how uplifting it is. So with that being said and Shall we continue tomorrow, lots of lots of wonderful things left to talk about in this beautiful surah. So inshallah huhtala enjoy the rest of the weekend. So which will preserve and protect us preserve and protect the note of a man in our hearts and in our lives. Always in forever Aloma I mean, just like malachite and everybody take care of yourselves was sent Mr. de la he about a captain
