ready?

00:00:35--> 00:01:28

Okay, Miss Mila Horowhenua Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shortfill MBE will mursaleen Nabina Muhammad Ali he after la sala our attempt to slim Mr. Bharat Salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. So welcome to the last and final class for the year in our journey through the conclusion of suitable for con. We have started this conclusion with the intention of thinking about and reflecting and mentally and spiritually preparing ourselves for Ramadan. So just a quick recap. The purpose behind this study was for us to think about ourselves of purifying our o'clock and our etiquettes with not only with Allah subhana wa Taala but with everyone

00:01:28--> 00:02:20

around us as well just cooperating and becoming a better Muslim and a better human being. And we've gone through several lists of etiquettes and o'clock, ranging from the posture and how you walk and how you conduct yourself how you dress, how you speak, the tone of your voice, hand gestures, the whole works, and brings us here towards verse number 73, which we've discussed last week. Verse somebody three is the last or verse that we pause that in today in shallow title, we'll finish up the surah and conclude the entire section insha Allah. So let's get right into him. For a quick recap. When Xena either zookeeper will be to be him. lumea hero ILA how so? memoir omiana There are

00:02:20--> 00:03:07

those who when reminded of the revelation of their master do not turn a blind eye or are Deaf or a deaf ear to it. So in other words, what we mentioned last week is the a battle Rockman our slaves that when they're reminded about the Ayat of Allah, these are two things that are mentioned here. Number one, yet of Allah, literally the idea of the Quran, that's the first opinion. Number two, the second opinion is the signs of Allah's existence are also referred to as a yet so a yet are two things that this area is highlighting the Quran itself the ayat of the Quran, and number two, the the signs and the miracles and the indicators of Allah subhanho wa Taala is existence. So the world

00:03:07--> 00:03:32

and everything in it, the galaxy, anything that causes you to reflect on the existence of Allah, what Allah has designed what Allah has created. So some of the examples that we looked at last week is Take, for example, just scenery in general greenery, the sky, the Earth, the mountains, sea life, the oceans, all of these things are part of the AI yet of Allah's existence, because why?

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

Literally just looking and reflecting on the complexity and detail of all of this, surely will link you back that none of this could have come together except by the will of the Creator SubhanaHu Uttara. So

00:03:49--> 00:04:34

here's how you got to internalize verse 73. You've got to understand it that you battle Rockman, even if they are, even if they are well versed, like they have the knowledge of these areas. They're not the kinds of people that will say, Oh, I've already studied that. Like, I don't need to learn that, again. I've studied that subject or I've been reflecting on the world and the skies. And all of these I was I spent a lot of time reflecting. So I don't need that reminder. That's not the attitude of Roberto Rodman, a better man always looks for and takes advantage of any reminder of Allah no matter how repetitive it is, they still absorb it. Why? Because they understand and know

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

that there is always something beneficial for believers, even if it's something they've heard before. Even if it's something that they've gone through an exercise before they don't care. As long as it's with a love as long as it'll connect us to our Creator. That's all we care about. And insha Allah Tada we take the reminder for what it is, let me include what I lay him when they're reminded of this revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala they don't ignore turn a blind

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

I saw ELA, Lila, Soma and Warmia. And of Soma is one of the words in decor and to describe spiritually deaf and omiana. Somebody who is spiritually blind. So at Bethel Rockman.

00:05:15--> 00:06:01

Even when they hear it, they're not going to pretend they hear, they will listen to it. Others you know, there are many Muslims and many people in general, that when they see these reminders, they get accustomed to it. It's very normal for people to get used to things like I'll get used to going a certain masjid, I'll get to use to a particular Imam, I'll get used to a particular shape, a particular reminder. And maybe, because of that habit of getting used to things, it's very easy for somebody to just become bored. And that's a real tragedy for a slave of Allah. Because you should never be bored in anything to do with what reminds you of Allah. Because if you get there were

00:06:01--> 00:06:21

things you don't feel encouraged and inspired. When you are around the reminders of Allah. It's a sign you have weak Iman it's a sign you have weak man because that's why Allah subhanaw taala says for that kid for in the karate and for remote meaning or legal salam to remind each other because reminders benefit believers, yeah.

00:06:22--> 00:06:28

Yep, do to keep our heart alive when it comes to seeing this specific

00:06:29--> 00:07:12

existence. Because it's like a good barometer to use. If you as long as recited and don't feel anything, kind of have to look inwards, right? But with the size of Allah, like if you're in a scenery and stuff like that, like you said, it's easy to get accustomed to it, it's easy to get bored. So how do you keep that violet? Okay, so very good. So just to repeat the question for the students online, how do you train your heart to always be thirsty and hungry for all the beauty and the signs of Allah that surround us that you never get accustomed and you never get bored? Listen, this all goes back to your iman, if you get accustomed to something that is filled with Allah's

00:07:12--> 00:08:01

reminder, so let's just put it into perspective, right? You see a beautiful scenery, you see a nice pond, you see beautiful trees, beautiful wildlife, wildlife. And it looks so perfect that it literally reminds you of Jannah. But then you move to that area, you get used to waking up every day, and that's the scenery use your eyes get accustomed to it. The way believers get around that and always make things feel fresh and new to their eyes into their heart is that they are constantly engaged with him. They're constantly learning and studying. Because studying and seeking knowledge is the fuel that keeps your thirst and hunger wanting more. So no matter what you are surrounded

00:08:01--> 00:08:42

with, because you're constantly studying the deen and you have this regular consistent relationship. In learning the deen you'll always feel hungry, you will remain spiritually hungry forever. That's what I am does no other knowledge in existence can do that. Every other knowledge on the planet has a limit. When you get to a certain level to a certain place. You get comfortable and you're like, you know you're well versed in this particular field or science, not with Islam. Not with Islam. That's why it is like I said it is a tragedy when a believer says oh, I've already heard this topic. Give me something else. Oh, we've already learned this before. I've listened to so many hotbeds of l

00:08:42--> 00:09:27

telkwa. And about patience. That's from Shaytaan. That is from shaitan. You never ever allow yourself to say, Oh, we've already heard this topic from him before. He's just repeating it again. No, don't do that. Because why? Like, as we said believers always benefit from a reminder no matter how repetitive that reminder is. So seeking knowledge on a consistent basis will always keep that open mind and that thirst for reflection and pondering. The second thing that our LMS do, is do what Lachman Alehissalaam, it was said that he used to do, he would literally have a long time. Sometimes it will be every day. Sometimes it will be a few times a week, but he'll have this a long time where

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

they look man Ali Sam used to do. He's still like, go outside out of his home and be amongst the people by himself. And he would literally reflect so he would look at like the mountains and stare at the mountains. And you'll notice like it's the subconscious thing in your mind that if you fix it on a particular place or thing, so let's say you see this beautiful tree and you just start looking and staring at it. You'll be amazed how the heart starts to talk to you. And then

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

You'll start to focus on details, you're stuck to look at texture and colors from this tree, that otherwise you would have never noticed how you just walked by. But because you paused and you fixated your mind, your eyes, your heart, your intention, just on the street, you start to extract things that you normally you would have looked over and that can happen when you have a little bit of alone time. I know that's challenging where we are. It's challenging to do that where you can have a few minutes for yourself to just think and most people are not encouraged especially where we live to have this alone time and just think about yourself and think about your life. This was

00:10:38--> 00:11:14

always the methodology of scholars you know, there was said that Imam Ahmed or Hema hula closer towards the end of his life, for the last 10 or 11 years of his life, he stopped teaching and he literally literally would go up the mountain and just be there alone every single day. When asked what it is that you do, he said, I spent my whole life for the people now these latter years of my life before I meet Allah subhanaw taala I want to spend for myself, so he would be there he would study he would still continue to pray make his door and he would literally just

00:11:15--> 00:11:56

blank out as much of the people in his responsibilities just focusing on his relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's really really important. But like I said, I do understand it's easier said than done, but having some alone time really really important. Okay, there's there's many more things perhaps you can extract a few more things that inshallah can help fuel the heart as we move on. Well, let the you know your coluna Robina habla Now we all know this verse, don't we? The a battle Rahman are people that when they pray, or don't bend, haeberlin I mean, I swear to you now with 30 yet Tina Porter, Aryan. Oh Allah, Oh, our Lord. Oh, our Master, bless us

00:11:57--> 00:12:02

with pious spouses and offspring pause there. Okay.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

Habla.

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

Habla. See this here, this word?

00:12:09--> 00:13:03

What you're asking Allah, when you say hub learner, is you're asking Allah to give you something that is really unique and special. You don't you're not asking Allah to give you or bless you. Which spouse is like everyone else. The you battle Rockman wants the most righteous, the most pleasing of spouses and children in the eyes of Allah. What you and I learned from this is the goal of marriage and having children is not so you can have a friend, this is going to be my life partner, and the children Inshallah, and I just want children so that, you know, we can teach them everything we know. And they can carry on our legacy, none and all of that secondary. The number one goal in Islam

00:13:03--> 00:13:51

for marriage, is that you want to come together with your husband or wife to serve as Dean. That's the goal. You're getting married because you want to be with somebody that together you serve Allah's Dean in whatever capacity. So when you're weak, your spouse is strong to encourage you. And you also do the same so you can support each other. That's what is being asked here is that we want the spouse that can be there with the same mindset and the same focus to serve a lesbian. Now, when it comes to children, this is the most important result of marriage is that you want to have children that can expand the OMA and carry on the message of Islam. So everybody understand this

00:13:51--> 00:14:14

intention and mindset for marriage. And having children is totally different. It's completely different from what society and life teaches us. You don't get married just because you're like, Oh, I just want to have my best friend. You know, I just want us to live together. No, that's all secondary. It's always about our Redeemer. That's why the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam told us in our authentic hadith in Bukhari

00:14:16--> 00:14:38

best Shirou while our tuna Pharaoh, like expand and multiply meaning have as much children as you can, is there anybody know the the Sunnah? Is not this to have one or two children. It's to Bismillah O Allah give us your baraka and you know, just as many children as you can in sha Allah, right?

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

You know, I'm West Indian, so I can speak of all my people. We got that lesson very well right? The average West Indian home always got about four five or six children mashallah, maybe this generation has deteriorated a little bit to their averages and below that but Masha Allah like our parents and grandparents. It was very common

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

Back in those times for families to have six and seven 910 Children, right? So, yeah, there you go. I come from family of eight, OR 999 or nine persons in my family, my parents, my father comes from a family of 18 children. My mother is 10. So you see, and I wish the students online could see like, we have the same average in the classroom here from all so this is actually part of the seminar right? And the prophet Ali Salat, wa salam encouraged, have as much children as you can. And generally speaking, you'll, you'll notice that Muslims anywhere we go, we've always got two and three strollers and we've always got a nice little gemera of kids with us. Like we have some of the

00:15:46--> 00:16:34

biggest families in terms of average all across the world. So heaven and mean as well as you know, with God, yeah, Tina is simply asking Allah subhanaw taala for the best of spouses, and as a result, the best of offspring and children to carry on the legacy and serve a lesbian. Now, that's in terms of asking, now Allah blesses you with them. There's obviously ups and downs in marriages, right. And there's all obviously there is challenges upon challenges when you're raising children. Look with the rebuttal. Rockman also asked for the React Hina Kurata. Aaron, this phrase here Cordura to everyone who will be the joy of our hearts, let's just pause there, it's a very dry translation,

00:16:34--> 00:17:20

quarter to everyone has mainly two meanings to them. Number one is pleasure of the ice. So when you see your spouse, and you see your children, it's supposed to bring comfort to your eyes. So just think about when you go for Hajj or you go for a trip, and you leave your kids behind, or they get married, and you don't see them for a couple of years until you see them again, even if you haven't talked to them just to have your eyes, have a glimpse and see them back in person in front of you. There's a lot of joy and pleasure and peace in that that's called pura to early on. When you look at your family. And immediately all of your worries go away. You're just you feel relaxed. Trust me, I

00:17:20--> 00:18:03

understand. It also works the opposite. For some people, when they see their family. It's the worst moment of their day, and they just want to get away from their husband or their wife and just like why did I come home, I get that. We're just talking about an ideal situation. And everything that comes below that varies. So that's the first meaning of pura to Aryan. The second meaning is really beautiful. Cora to you, and also means tears of joy. So, you see your children for the first time, like you see your daughter or your son for the first time they made will do without you asking them to do that. Like they just you've been training them and teaching them and all of a sudden they came

00:18:03--> 00:18:44

or you see your daughter coming beside you when you're praying for the first time in her life. She came and she just stood beside you, even if her kind of prayer is doing tawaf around you 17 times jumping on your back playing and tickling. But the point is, her presence is there. She knows when Daddy or when mommy is in this prayer thing, that it's something different. That's something that she's learning. She's adapting she's getting used to she's getting comfortable with and so on. That's called polar to Ariana. It's like those moments when you see the spark of Islam and deemed starting to manifest in your marriage, or it starts to manifest in your children. And it brings us

00:18:44--> 00:18:53

tears of joy. That's curato Aryan. That's what you want. And the only way to get it is you have to ask Allah for that.

00:18:54--> 00:19:18

This is not something you can build in your marriage and with your children. You can't build this kind of peace and contentment. You do your part but you part of that is that you ask Allah to make them the comfort of my eyes and my heart while Jana little mattina Eman and make us models for the righteous. This is important. Okay. See the ending of this am

00:19:19--> 00:19:35

these models that we're talking about? These individuals are joining them two meanings here. Either it is talking about the spouses and the Children's so the entire family make all of us from amongst the motor team.

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

Or it's talking just to Who do you think it's talking to?

00:19:42--> 00:19:52

within the family? It's talking to just one group of people within the family. Who do you think that is? Is it the wife? Is it the husband or is that the son or is it the daughter

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

this area is another opinion that scholars hold is that it's talking to all the husbands

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

So, the husbands one of the names for husbands in the Koran is Imam.

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

But the imam in what sense in what context, they are the Imam of telkwa for the home.

00:20:14--> 00:21:02

Part of the men or the husband's responsibility is to preserve Islam in the home. When they see their family weak or struggling in some way, when it comes to Islam, part of his responsibility is to take leadership and address those weaknesses. So if it means, okay, kids from now on, we're not going to wait for your alarm to wake you up on fire. I'm going to start waking you guys up. Because you guys are still sleeping through your alarms. That's what the that's what the man here, he takes leadership and in order at the end of the day to preserve taqwa in the home and it within the family. So it's really important because it highlights one of the prime responsibilities of

00:21:02--> 00:21:31

husbands, okay? But don't don't lose sight that it also includes the entire family as well. Sometimes the husband is weakened and the wife she's the strongest in the family. So sometimes the responsibilities flip where she's the one that's going to say, Okay, I'm going to wake you guys up for Fudger. I'm going to remind you guys it's time to, to pray. I'm going to remind you of this or that, Willa EK, you just don't al Horford have email Sadhguru where you look Hohner fear to hear tone was salam. And

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

now we're going to come to the reward.

00:21:36--> 00:21:41

The last verse, in terms of Dora is verse number 74. Right here.

00:21:42--> 00:22:10

Now Allah will switch and turn towards the reward of all that you have asked Allah for all that you've been praying for and making dua for Willa Iike, you just don't know what Fattah email Suburu those are the ones who will be rewarded with elevated mentions. You see this word here? A whole differ in Arabic holder for literally means like a bedroom.

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

So one room in the house is called a hole.

00:22:15--> 00:22:45

But when it's referring to Jana, it's referring to an entire area, a massive piece of landscape, that is as far as your eyes could see on all directions. So you cannot see the end of either direction and even above. That's called Hodaka. Allah says, Now, do you remember when we talked about the different words for rewards in the Quran? Like Hasina? This Jessa, one

00:22:46--> 00:23:39

fell lab, there are different words to describe the rewards or blessings in the Quran. One of them is you just don't know. Jews or Jezza when Jezza one is one word, in the Koran of other words, to describe a reward. What is this? What is the meaning or the intent with this word? Jezza when it's referring to a portion of reward? In other words, what Allah is saying, Are you bad old man that made all of these doors that we went through, they are going to get the their portion of rewards in Jannah, where they will be rewarded with these massive rooms that are like mentions, that's only partial reward.

00:23:41--> 00:23:47

You know, if no Kathiawar Hema, who mentions in his tafseer the whole fact that is being referred to here

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

is like a mansion that is built or this or it's structured like crystal.

00:23:56--> 00:24:21

So it's a crystal type vessel. And it's as high as the eyes can see and as wide and spacious as the eyes can see as far as the eyes can see. But it's made out of this beautiful crystal that is only found in Jana. So this is this is incredible. It's beyond our imagination. But the thing that amazes me is the fact that hola use this word,

00:24:22--> 00:24:45

a portion of their reward it means that's just one part. The full rewards that you're going to get for all of these neurons you made we're not even there yet. This is just the starting when you enter Jannah you got this massive palace or mansion built out of crystals Okay. Bill out of crystals. You just own a whole fatter female Subbarao.

00:24:47--> 00:24:53

Do you see what happened here? Allah says be male Saba do not be mad Darrow.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Allah says because of what they were patient to

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

Did you hear any dua that we've gone through since the beginning of this course, where we're talking about patients? No, not one of those doors that we went through, has the word patients in them.

00:25:17--> 00:25:35

No dua in this section, asked Allah for patience. But here Allah says, you're going to get this reward because of your patience. So how do we understand like, why this word is being highlighted here? Are you battling ramen?

00:25:37--> 00:26:24

All the way always has patience. It's permanent. You know, patience is really interesting, because for most people, it it's seasonal. Like you'll be patient one day, the next day you lose it you morning, you have it afternoon you don't, it just fluctuates. But people that are the audience of these a Atari battle ramen their patients is permanent. Meaning, even if they feel the urge to let their patients go to lose that they fight it, they're like, No, I know that. I'm going to regret it if I say it, if I do it, so they know how to control themselves. That's really difficult. Does anybody know? Or can share with us? What are some of the things you think can help somebody become

00:26:25--> 00:26:40

more patient and have that patience, consistent in their day to day lives? What are some of the things you think that they should be doing? Or not doing? So we're talking about patients on a consistent level? How do you do that?

00:26:47--> 00:26:54

Good vicar just constant remembrance. Alright, the consciousness, okay, great. Anything else?

00:26:55--> 00:27:36

Patients has every the most effective way The Scholars say to build and maintain patients is to be around people that have patients as well. It's the surrounding. Because when you're around people that are calm, that know how to control themselves, that know how to, even if they lose their cool, they know how to stop that there's a certain limit, they will go and they won't go beyond that. That's very encouraging. Because you'll find yourself sometimes you'll be like, Whoa, if I were you, I would have lost it, but you didn't even budge. So that can be encouraging for you and be like, Man, this person here really knows how to keep themselves together. And that's encouraging that you

00:27:36--> 00:27:45

can start to use that as example. So being around people that possess patience is really helpful. Yeah. Like someone from your house that doesn't have that.

00:27:47--> 00:28:31

Yet, so let's say like, you just don't have that surrounding, okay, whether it's in your social, peer circle or at home, there's just nobody around you in your life has patients put it though, is maybe the most extreme. So what do you do in a scenario like that, you got to remember, Allah never puts you in a situation that is above your capacity to handle to bear. If you are there, it's because of one of two reasons you are either going to be the source of patience and encouragement for everyone else. Or you're going to be tested like everybody else. So you've got to decide. And it's just going to be one of those scenarios where once you know the value of patients and people

00:28:31--> 00:29:14

around you don't whether they're in your home or elsewhere, you have got to make that personal decision that I'm not going to let myself go and cross certain boundaries, to where I lose my patience and say or do things that I will regret. Because that's what happens when you lose patience, isn't it? Like, you'll end up losing control? That's why our emotive no hot tub Rhodiola Hein who said that, if patience was a human being, they would be the most beautiful creature in existence. Because people who are a patient, you can never break them, there's nothing you can do, to break them, to destroy them, their focus, their morale, their, their, their strength, is like

00:29:14--> 00:29:58

none other. So being around people that if you can, that are patient is very encouraging. The third thing that scholars say to build patients on a consistent level is to learn the rewards of patients. Nobody has ever been disappointed by being patient. Like it's never resulted like oh my god, I'm so upset. I'm like, Why was I so patient today? It never happens. It's one of those things. It's so remarkable. Like it's just like sadaqa nobody has ever become poor by being generous and giving sadaqa since the same idea, and nobody has ever been disappointed as a result of being patient. So it's guaranteed always and forever, something positive will come out of it. So you'll be very

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

optimistic you'll be

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

be a positive person yourself. Secondly, does anybody know what the rewards are for patients in this world or in the era? What are some of the rewards?

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

Good Sakina peace tranquility. What else?

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

Is there a reward for patients in the grave?

00:30:20--> 00:30:20

Yeah,

00:30:21--> 00:31:04

part of the graves becoming a garden from the gardens of Jana is patience. It's one of the ways that guarantees that so you will start to taste and live a little bit of Jenna in the grave itself after judgment, the celebration that will happen that insha Allah when Allah says Okay, everybody, go to Jana, you go to Jana, I go to Jenna Inshallah, all of us good agenda. The first thing that's going to happen is Allah will send a massive group of angels that will surround you, they'll come around in circles around you, and there will be flapping their wings. And they would be doing this out of joy and celebration, and whether they're going to say Salah Hoon Alikum be mouse Subhadra tomb, they

00:31:04--> 00:31:39

will say peace be on to you of how patient you are. funnier America Dar, this is such a noble ending for you. So the celebration and blessing and reward starts off as soon as the sub the questioning is over. You're stamped with Jana, it starts celebrating right away. Another blessing for it is the people of patience will be at the highest level on the unusual piano they will be given the greatest honor during the judgment process. And also in general, they will be amongst the elite.

00:31:40--> 00:31:58

Regardless what we say at the end of the day, there is no disappointment for the one who is patient, and their rewards are literally infinite. There's no ending to the honor and blessing and the reward that they receive by being patient. Which companion was known for patients by the way.

00:32:01--> 00:32:44

I will buck up with all the Allah Horan anyone else. Probably amongst the prophets it was Yusuf alayhi salam, the prophet Ali salat wa salam said, just listen to this word, Subhan Allah, it's amazing that he says this right, the Prophet Muhammad Ali salat wa salam. He says this about Yusuf Ali's them. Remember the part of the story when Yusuf was about to get out of jail, the king sent the the Aziz sent a messenger go get to use it to interpret a dream for me. So the man comes and says, Yusef king wants you and he wants you to interpret his dream. At that moment, Yusuf alayhi salam had been in jail, at least maybe 20 to 30 years, he's been there. And remember, the jail

00:32:44--> 00:33:25

system, the prison system back then, was not these doors, these bars that you know, you have the gates and they're closed, they're in the pit on the ground. So all you have is this tiny, little, tiny little section or hole that you can look down and you can see his face. And that's the only ventilation and sunlight pierces through this tiny opening in the ground. Now, consider that it's hot, it's uncomfortable, it's lonely, it's dark, there's good chance there's a whole bunch of scorpions and other bugs roaming around there. And he's in there for X amount of years. Now, it's his opportunity to finally get out, breathe some fresh air, kind of relax and take, you know what's

00:33:25--> 00:34:09

happened all in instead, you know, he says, tells the guy go back and ask him about those women that set me up and got me into this position. Go on Ask me because I want my name to be cleared. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam says Subhanallah I don't know if I could have been as patient as Yusuf alayhi salam, when he was in that prison. Imagine this is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the most paid the greatest example of patients that saying, I don't know if I could have been as patient, as you say, for Alayhis Salam, to tell this man go back. I'm going to wait right here. And of course, we know the story. The reason why Yusuf Ali Islam did that is his honor. And his

00:34:09--> 00:34:39

reputation was more important than his freedom. He wanted to clear his name. So be male Sobrado where you will uphold a fee here to hear tone wasallam you'll love this and will be received with salutations and greetings of peace. See this conclusion of this? Allah says they're going to meet what you will call interfere with, to hear greeting West Salem and the Salem. Who are they meeting? Or who's meeting them?

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

Very bad. All right, man. When they enter Jannah they're going to be met with greetings and salam who is going to be giving them these greetings and who is going to be giving them the salam

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

If your love to this,

00:35:03--> 00:35:09

anybody that they longed to meet and even be reunited with.

00:35:10--> 00:35:19

Allah is promising here. Remember this part of the A because lots of people don't know that these things are talked about in Oregon.

00:35:20--> 00:36:08

Remember your loved one that passed away, whoever that person may be, and you long to see them, touch them and be with them again. Could be your parents could be children, friends, relatives, whoever Allah is saying, you are going to meet whom ever you decide desire to meet the person or the people that you've been longing to be with. Those are the people Allah will facilitate that will greet you and they will come to you in peace. So you know how we say in sha Allah you will be reunited with your family, with your parents, with your relatives and so on. This is one of the A proves that you will be with them again in shot low tide as long as they get Jana, you get Jana

00:36:08--> 00:36:23

inshallah you will all be together in Jana. So that's in terms of who you know, the aka is not restricted to just who you know, it's anybody that is linked to you or important to you. So if I asked you right now,

00:36:24--> 00:36:42

which pious figure would you want to meet in Jannah? What name comes to asides from the prophet Ali Sato son, I'm sure we all want to meet him in Shaolin being his company, right? But aside from him, which Islamic figure

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

would you want to be with or meet when you enter jannah inshallah. So, like, men, are these

00:36:50--> 00:36:51

sisters, who would you want to meet?

00:36:52--> 00:36:57

How detailed are the hola minor? Madame Ali has said,

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

you know, what I think, you know,

00:37:01--> 00:37:48

I always think about the first person that became Muslim in my lineage, who that person is, and just meet them shake their hand was like, Thank you, that first person that became Muslim, and started all of this to where we were, I am now just make that individual. I also would love to meet, you know, some of the great scholars as well. You know, that we read about you find their names in every book, you go just to be amongst their company. But yeah, all of the companions are motive, no, kata Babu, Becca de toda de la hyena, all of these incredible people, just to be able to see them and tell them you know, I read your story. And I learned how to be patients through your your life, your

00:37:48--> 00:38:04

story. Thank you, because it helped me get to where I am today. Right. So that's where you left Polnareff he had to hear tone selama get to meet anybody you desire. And Allah will facilitate that for you. Called ENFP they will stay in there forever.

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

Holly Deena fie. Her husband, Mr. Calderon, one more karma, what an excellent place to settle and to reside.

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

So what just happened here?

00:38:16--> 00:38:20

It says here, they will remain in Jannah forever.

00:38:21--> 00:39:03

But then Allah says, It's so excellent and beautiful, that you'll settle there, and you'll live there. So doesn't it sound redundant? Because if it's Holly Dena fee Ha, you're there forever, then it's already the assumption is if you're going to be in Genda, forever, then of course, you're going to be residing there. And you're going to be settled in there. So why I mentioned them at the end of this. Why not just holiday nephila Next year, you're going to be in there forever, Allah highlights on top of that, you're going to settle and relax there and then you'll be able to reside, live comfortably forever.

00:39:05--> 00:39:43

This is kind of like more of a psychological benefit and encouragement that Allah is giving us here. You're not just going to be in Jannah temporarily, you'll you'll have one residence and at some point, in general, you'll have to move on go somewhere else. Or you might have some like annoying neighbors. And then you're just like, Yo, Allah, you know, I need to get off the street. I need to go somewhere else not going to have that most stuff called Run, you're going to be able to settle and relax at all of your worries and pain and mental stress and all of that disappears. There's nobody that will be overthinking. Nobody would be sad. Nobody would be dis depressed. Nobody would

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

be overwhelmed. It doesn't exist anymore. Well, I'm calmer. It'll be permanent. This is your home and everybody else that allow allow Allah allows to be in your company, it will all be for you. So it's it's really remarkable when Allah subhanho wa Taala breaks down things in

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

in bits and pieces for us to really absorb and understand just the quality of life and the permanency that's associated with Jana.

00:40:11--> 00:40:31

Quite a bit will be Komarov being learned or come for katika debitum festival for your corner Louisiana. Now this goes back to context. So Allah Allah will tell the Prophet alayhi salatu salam go say to them, you all would not even matter to Allah worth not for your faith in him pause.

00:40:32--> 00:41:19

So this is going to be this is somewhat linked to my hookbait tomorrow in sha Allah. But now the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is saying to all the Meccans, all the people that are listening to him all amongst the machinery, corn, but even including in that, his companions, he's saying to them, you would be nothing worth mentioning and talking about. If it wasn't for your iman, the only reason why you matter is because you have faith. That's the reason that Allah and everybody else, including the prophet will take you seriously and pay attention to you. What you learn from that is that's our purpose.

00:41:20--> 00:41:46

And under the scholars have a saying, if there is no faith, there's no life, like you would be living on earth like a zombie. And this is captured in another Surah listen to the AYA. Allah says in surah NRM a woman can a meter for you now, once upon a time you were dead, meaning spiritually dead, then Allah gave you life? What's the life that Allah gave us?

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

What's the life?

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

Amen. The Quran, Islam.

00:41:53--> 00:42:41

Otherwise, just look at the world and how it operates. Without Islam. Just look, look what it falls into. Look at the choices that are made. Look at this level of corruption and fest sad all across the globe. Well, like II Men is the separator, this is the thing that makes you worthy in the sight of Allah. Other than that, otherwise, you are simply just zombies. And just just like Allah says, in another Surah, you become like cattle, you're just sort of like just walking around. You want to turn you turn there, you come back, you reverse the goal there, no direction. And the perfect way to visual visualize that is just look at how cattle behave. The cow cows and sheeps. And when, when you

00:42:41--> 00:43:25

observe them in their natural habitat, just see what they do. They'll just graze around, stop here, eat some grass, then turn look at his buddy. Then look at the other end and continue on with life. And that's how Allah says you'll be killed and you'll just be like cattle. But humans actually go a degree below that. Allah says Bell whom have done actually you'll be even below cattle. Why? Because even cattle if you poke them or hit them, what did they do? They eventually like React and they run away. But Allah says the people without Eman, many of them you will poke them like you'll remind them you'll tell them that's wrong. Don't do that. Don't be so dishonest. Don't be a racist, don't

00:43:25--> 00:43:50

discriminate, don't hate. They'll still look at you and be like, are you done? Okay, I'm gonna go back to what I'm doing. So that Allah even categorizes the people who have zero faith and live their life with no care or concern for anyone. They even go below the life or the or the habits of cattle, or, yeah, that will be Komodo being lowland to come

00:43:51--> 00:44:08

for political rabbit tune, but now you disbelievers have denied the truth for pedicab. debitum. For Ahsoka, yo Kunal Lizama. The the torment or the punishment is on its way, Lisa from last him, does that mean it's 100%? It's already written, it's gonna come.

00:44:09--> 00:44:22

So when we think about Palestine, when we think about Sudan, when we think about Yemen, when we think about all these countries, and you know, the crisis, the the treatment,

00:44:23--> 00:44:59

all of the things that are really unfortunate and sad that we hear about and read about, through no fault of their own, they've just been targeted, and they've been humiliated, they've been slaughtered, they've their, their heritage, their life, their purpose has been taken away from them. Allah says, Don't worry, those who are responsible for those disbelievers who are responsible for that their time will come. It has never happened in the history of mankind, nor will it ever happen. This is a less promise that anybody would commit an act

00:45:00--> 00:45:49

act of injustice and get away with it. It won't happen. It can't. Because that's it's not it's not a just life for people to hurt you, then you die. And that's the end of it. Like, logically it wouldn't make sense. Why because when we're alive, we strive not to live that way, we strive to be treated fairly and with justice, you know, we strive because that's the only way we can live. So it wouldn't make any sense that when you're treated in unjustly manner, that you just die and go away. And that's level on unfairness logically doesn't make sense. But this is also less of how to retire this plan. So having said that, this is my, I guess, you could say, my offer to all of you and those

00:45:49--> 00:46:11

online, of some of the things that you can take and think about in your own life, as we come closer to the month of Ramadan is really look at, look at the look in the mirror and look at yourself, every one of us can find something in us that is relevant to each of these areas that we got to work on. I've always been this kind of person that

00:46:12--> 00:46:54

I don't like forgetting myself whenever there's a disaster, or you know, some sort of issue that plagues the entire ummah. So even though what's happening in other parts of the world is there. It is not from the Sunnah, that you throw all of your eggs in one basket and you just focus all of your time and attention on one thing and you forget yourself, you forget your family, you forget all of the other responsibilities. And you know Shala for those of you that are to here in Charlotte, these are some of the things I'm going to try to address in tomorrow's hotbed inshallah. But it's just really, how is the Sunnah has taught us to continue focusing on yourself despite when there's

00:46:54--> 00:47:41

tragedy happening within the OMA and how it guides us to do to do so. It is not like I said, from the Sunnah, that you focus all your attention on one thing and ignore everything else. So that's one of the prime messages in throughout these eight. And I just pray that Allah subhanaw taala allow us to implement the teachings of these eight and help us to become better persons and better believers that Allah is pleased with insha Allah Jota we have about 15 minutes because today in sha Allah we will conclude around eight or 805 It's the last session for the year. Okay, so we are done after today in sha Allah, it is the last session for the year. So we will not resume until B is Neela he

00:47:41--> 00:47:45

Tyler in September sometime in sha Allah because after Ramadan now

00:47:46--> 00:48:07

then we start to get into I mean maybe if there is an opportunity to squeeze in one more quick course on a subject, I would love to do it so you can stay tuned for that that after Ramadan inshallah we still have a couple of months, hopefully, there's an opportunity to do something there as well. And if there is you'll hear about it in sha Allah. I did have something here though.

00:48:11--> 00:48:17

Should I click the next screen? Or should we just pause there and leave you with that? Wondering what was this bonus that he

00:48:22--> 00:48:53

the journal is was my, my bonus material for you. Because remember, in SUTA till KEF one of the things that we were talking about was the dead gel obviously suited to Kevin the link to the protection from the Dogen. So this was just a an additional section that I wanted to leave you with. You can have all of these notes in sha Allah. But I'll just go through them real quickly. A lot of this stuff we had already looked at in Suneetha calf. Everybody knows what the devil is.

00:48:55--> 00:49:20

No, don't worry, there's no dead child near you, or somebody you know, somebody that's you know, it's pretty annoying in your life. You're like, Yeah, I do actually I have a digital in my house. Actually no, no. One of the most important it is a major sign of the Day of Judgment. Every Prophet and Messenger has warned us about the Dogen. There's in no particular order, order in narration does not constitute the order of execution. So

00:49:21--> 00:49:59

whenever the Prophet alayhi salatu salam talked about when the stet gel will come, sometimes those narrations came very late in the prophet hood. So closer towards the death of the Prophet it sought to some he would talk about the dead gel and warn people about the digit. That doesn't mean that because it's closer to the end of his life, it will come closer towards the day of judgment. It may come very much, you know, much much much earlier prior to the day of judgment. So the exact timeline, we don't know. Well, we do know it is a major sign and we do know that it is one of the

00:50:00--> 00:50:25

Last signs but in terms of how long before the actual day of judgment how many years after the gel will until the day of general we don't know the exact timeline. The Prophet it salat wa salam said that the signs will come like pearls falling from a necklace just like something like this. Each science I broke this every pearl that falls, that's how the signs of the Day of Judgment will will happen. Do you think they're happening right now?

00:50:29--> 00:50:30

Oh, yeah.

00:50:31--> 00:50:34

Any major signs of the Day of Judgment already happened.

00:50:40--> 00:51:12

So when the shepherds compete and build in tall buildings, so it's hard to put your thumb on whether that's happening now, or it's already happened, because maybe 200 years ago, the Muslims then would have said, Look, they're all competing to build, who's got the highest tower made out of mud and wood. And over there, this guy built it on with bricks over here with mud bricks over there. This one invented iron and look what he's starting to build. So the exact timeline could have been then. But

00:51:13--> 00:51:25

the culture of competition in building lavish and fancy, you know, extravagant structures is certainly amongst us. Right? It is certainly amongst us.

00:51:27--> 00:51:38

Anything else the death of the Prophet it salat wa salam is a major sign when he died, it was a major, major sign that the day of judgment is near

00:51:39--> 00:51:52

catastrophe, natural disasters, all of that facade, corruption will be so rampant, that people would be killing each other and not even know why they why in the world, they did it.

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

It feels like we're there as well.

00:51:56--> 00:52:07

You know, the value of life. I argue that no religion on this planet holds more value to a life more than Muslims.

00:52:08--> 00:52:22

And one very simple way proves our Janessa prayers. Just think about it. If you if you've ever like prayed Janessa in Mecca, Medina, you have like four or 5 million people in the huddle,

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

praying Janessa over one baby,

00:52:27--> 00:52:41

one tiny, little one year old infant, whatever, the whole 5 million plus, everybody will stop with what they're doing to pray and focus over this one child, what religion does that.

00:52:42--> 00:53:04

So it's remarkable just the value of life of how Islam projects that value. You know, we value life more than anyone else. So the point is, is that all of these signs are happenings, most of the minor signs have already taken place. Another minor sign that I guess you could say is also we're living it as of course, nakedness and

00:53:05--> 00:53:22

nudity will become so prevalent, that nobody would be affected by it. The kid will just be accustomed to seeing, you know, somebody, whether it's male or female, just seeing people exposed himself, without any shame without any care, it's become a culture, it's become a norm.

00:53:24--> 00:54:07

You know, I have a habit of watching old videos of like the early 1900s. Like on YouTube, there are endless videos two and three hours long, where you have a guy who's on who has a camera, and he's just recording day to day life of people from 1901 1902. In New York, in the States and Canada. SubhanAllah. Man, you've got to take some time. If you haven't seen those videos, just look at it and see how how life was back then, how people dressed how they conducted themselves, how they groom themselves. It's so remarkable. It literally looks like it's coming. It's happening from another planet somewhere. Just the culture and the way people conducted themselves. It's remarkable.

00:54:09--> 00:54:16

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam also told us when the signs of the Day of Judgment happen, no interruption, they will just continue to happen.

00:54:17--> 00:54:20

In perfect sequence and imperfect order.

00:54:22--> 00:54:59

This is just linguistically I don't want to we don't need to mention that. Why is the gel called Elon Musk? These are some of the opinions why he's giving this title one of his eye hangs. So one of his eyes, the the entire eyeball itself will protrude, right when we say hang, it's not necessarily going to be hanging like this. What he could just be you could just protrude more than the average person. He will cover the earth and 40 days he will bring about miracles cures, but all of it will be a deception. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said that when the digelar is here, there will be worldwide famine and all the crops and agricultural all of it will be dead and dried up

00:55:00--> 00:55:24

And the jell will come and make an offering to people. And he will show everybody a big massive mountain of meat and another mountain of something else and he will invite people to come here enjoy. You don't have to worry about it. You don't have to starve anymore. You don't have to die anymore. Look at all of this that I'm here to bring you. And obviously what is the condition? What is the condition that the DeGette will put on the people to have access to what he's offering?

00:55:27--> 00:55:27

Yeah,

00:55:28--> 00:55:41

like, leave off Allah as the one true Creator acknowledged me as your Creator and you can have it all so the word that judge from digital means the deceptive one, okay.

00:55:44--> 00:55:44

Is he alive?

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

Like right now?

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

Yeah, where is he?

00:55:57--> 00:56:44

There are some Hadith that describes like a vicious vicinity of where he might be more towards Syria in that part of the world, but the exact location has been hidden from us until the command is given. Okay now, but the Prophet it salat wa salam describes the jealous chained up is chained up against the wall. Perhaps maybe in something that the way the Hadith describe it some sort of indent or cave or something that he's he's locked up and he simply awaits for the command for Allah to release them. And that is when this fitna will begin. This is when when he arrives, these are just some of the things that he will bring about in terms of trial and fitna, it would be a devastating

00:56:44--> 00:57:14

time. So much so that some scholars even prayed like for a lot to take their life before the jello arrives like just not to be around because his temptation would be so strong that members of our family there's a process I'm saying members of your family would have to be tied down and locked up just to prevent them from going and following the Deskjet like That's how powerful his message and his call will be

00:57:19--> 00:57:23

Yeah, so let's just finish this up. Yeah, these are just some of the yet

00:57:25--> 00:57:58

that are mentioned about the digital nothing here I really do. It's more of just reference. More than a dozen authentic hadith the Prophet it starts with something there's no matter amongst the children of Adam greater than the Gen. process. Some also said this in his is Tisha hood, so the door is near to shower before you finish your salah or will become an fitna till dunya Minh fitna dead gel is what it should say. Well, Missy had Dejan so just before you're about to finish your salt, so I'm only going up to one of the daughters that's from the sunnah to make is you ask Allah to protect you from the Dogen

00:58:00--> 00:58:04

hmm, these are just some of the Hadith I left here too.

00:58:08--> 00:58:18

How can the How can Muslims guarantee that they won't fall into the deception of the dojo? What do you have to do?

00:58:19--> 00:58:37

Because you know how he'll have those letters tattooed or printed on his forehead, calf, fat and aura. So how can we say, Oh, well, we already know we'll just look out for that. Once we see it, we know we're safe. Is that how it's gonna be? No.

00:58:39--> 00:59:15

The only way somebody is going to have the the ability to read those letters, is if they lived a life where they strived to follow a lestine. So basically, the lives that we're living right now is to prep us that if we are still alive in the digital is here, that Allah will give us the strength to read those letters and recognize him right away. That is not something that happens spontaneously on the spot to somebody who's never prayed, who never practiced their deen and so on. So just keep that in mind. There's no shortcuts to this

00:59:19--> 00:59:48

case. So of course these are just some of the descriptions hanging like a floating grape of the forest green color and cloudy appearance. He'll be extremely strong, reddish and tanned and his complexion medium height, thick, curly, wavy hair like small headed snakes. This is all part of the Hadith with a large forehead and a wider neck. medium height very powerful, with a bent or a back that would slouch forward and on his forehead he will have these three letters and many more as well.

00:59:52--> 00:59:58

The gel will make his grant and she's from the east, in what is known as Hora San or Isfahan.

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

I think that's all

01:00:09--> 01:00:11

nothing here I want to highlight

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

okay.

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

Yeah, he would be caught and he would be killed.

01:00:23--> 01:00:34

This is an area. Yeah. Well, it will be the area of where the where the white. The white mosque or the white Masjid is

01:00:35--> 01:00:40

is where? Oh, yes, yes, yes, you're right. That's in Damascus. Yep.

01:00:41--> 01:00:43

And I believe that that needs to be destroyed in the

01:00:45--> 01:00:48

Yeah, it hasn't been destroyed still there. Okay, okay.

01:00:50--> 01:00:50

Okay, guys.

01:00:52--> 01:00:54

That's all I have for you.

01:00:57--> 01:01:04

There's nothing really that I wanted to highlight here. Protection wise. The 10 I as of Yeah.

01:01:05--> 01:01:11

Friday. Yeah. So there are two Hadith either the first 10 or the last 10.

01:01:12--> 01:01:14

Yeah. So you try to read all of it? Yeah.

01:01:16--> 01:01:17

It says your

01:01:18--> 01:01:39

angels. Yeah. The angels will guard all seven entrances to those areas. Yeah, he will. He will sit on a mountain he will point towards the white castle or the white Palace, which would probably send them a message ID. Right. There was another. Some students in Medina said he will not come further than the white Catholic.

01:01:41--> 01:01:49

University. I know. I know exactly. Where? Because, yeah, I know exactly what mountain it is. And exactly.

01:01:50--> 01:02:20

Yeah, exactly. Because when we were there, we used to talk about it all the time. It was it was pretty. It's pretty crazy. How real it's right there in front of your eyes. today. If you enter my camera, you'll notice that there's a difference between the outskirts and inside. Yeah, yeah. For example, like in the outskirts of Mecca, you will see people without hijab, yep, places to party, and it only continue to get worse.

01:02:21--> 01:02:25

So literally, there are only two cities in the world where you don't see.

01:02:26--> 01:02:26

Yeah.

01:02:28--> 01:03:08

So students and students here on online, we pray Allah subhanaw taala give us the strength to welcome Ramadan, to reap its reward and its blessings. We probably need to Ramadan now more than we ever had in our entire lives just because of the current state of the world, and all of the struggle and problems. So we pray that Allah subhanaw taala facilitate a way that all of us can enjoy and gain some sense of peace and tranquility in the month of Ramadan. And that can carry on even afterwards in sha Allah. This is our month in our time to really stop and pause and think about our lives reflect on what we've done. And really, and truly, at the end of the day, the whole point of

01:03:08--> 01:03:11

Ramadan is for you to reassess.

01:03:12--> 01:03:55

If you are ready to meet Allah. It's that simple. Right? Are you at a place in your life that if Allah took you, will you can you comfortably say yes, Alhamdulillah I did my best. Ramadan is an opportunity for all of us that for those who say they've done their best, that's one thing, but for most of us, we still want the opportunity to do more. So that month is really what it's all about. So students really take advantage of it. Don't be amongst those that start off with excitement and sort of die down in the middle. And that's a tragedy. That's a sign of weak faith, you should never have that in Ramadan. What you might do to sort of maintain some consistency is change your routine,

01:03:55--> 01:04:22

a little bit in the middle of Ramadan. So if you have a routine where you go to one method and you do the same thing every day, break that routine once in a while, try a different method, go somewhere else, having a thought at your house, something like that. And that would keep the energy and the excitement of Ramadan all the way towards the end in sha Allah. Well, we pray that Allah accepts our efforts. And until we meet again, we'll ask you to do our annual hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
