00:07:43 --> 00:08:28

And that's what it's called. But we began talking about those who are labeled and those who are recognized as the intelligent ones by Allah subhanho wa taala. In the Quran in many occasions, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to a certain group of people as the old Al Bab. And last week, we are talking about the what is one of the characteristics of these kinds of people and they are those who have Taqwa in their life. Today I want to share with you two ideas of the Quran. In both of these ayah Allah subhanho wa taala. He mentioned again, the oral Al Bab and he says that there's a certain characteristics about a characteristic about these kinds of people. The very first thing is the very

00:08:28 --> 00:09:16

first idea is this is in surah Ali Imran, at the very end of Sudha. Ali Imran In fact, the last passage of Sudha Ali Imran Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the fee Hello Samoa it will vary in the creation of the skies and the earth was the laughing lady when the hot and the changing of the day in the night. Yeah 10 little ol bag there are signs of those people who are intelligent. And so these are people Allah subhana wa Tada saying that this is Signs for those who are intelligent, and Allah continues by saying a Lavina Yeah, the Quran Allah hoppy yam and welcome Odin. We're allowed you know, we him. There are those who remember Allah sitting in standing, and even while they're on

00:09:16 --> 00:09:39

their side, meaning on their bed, they're thinking about Allah subhanho wa Taala with a foot Karuna fee Holika smile at without, and they ponder over the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they say Rob bene Maha Lakota had about the law, you have not created all this in vain, meaning that there is a purpose why you have created this. And so in essence what this means is

00:09:41 --> 00:09:57

that when we sit down and when we think about the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we say that Oh Allah, you have not created this in vain. There is a purpose behind all this. Likewise, I am to the creation of Allah and there's a purpose behind my life to

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

the prayer what is the purpose

00:10:00 --> 00:10:47

As of our life, that is what we need to reflect upon. We also need to reflect upon when Allah says, reflect upon the creation of the skies in the earth. What does that mean? It means that we ponder over Allah subhanho wa Taala his how amazing he is his creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this brings us to Allah subhanho wa Taala as there was a tabula ie he says for free equally che in LA Dulo Allah and in every single thing that we see around us, there is a sign in it that there is one Allah subhanahu wata Allah And subhanAllah there are many a Hadith also, the wall some of them had the theme have classified some of these kinds of a hadith as die if, according to sola Hadith, when

00:10:47 --> 00:11:32

you have many a hadith that are buried, and you bring them together, and they have the same message, it becomes more stronger and is no longer considered as the if there are many a hadith that talks about the creation and how amazing each sky is, and what a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that the sky the first sky compared to the second sky is like a ring in a desert. Think about that for a moment. Everything that does exist within one realm, one Earth, that one compared to the next one is like a ring in a desert. And the second one compared to the third one is like a ring in a desert. Think about a desert and think about a ring, how insignificant it is

00:11:32 --> 00:12:16

compared to the entire desert. And then he says I don't use it on the third one compared to the fourth one is like a ring in the desert and he goes all the way to the seventh sky. And he says the seventh sky compared to the cool sea, and some of the other mothers say that the currency is not like a currency that we sit on is not like a chair. It is these the footstool of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that cool see or footstool of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. The seven sky compared to the currency of Allah is like a ring in a desert and the currency of Allah subhanho wa Taala compared to the Arash and the Throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala is like a ring in a desert. So think about all

00:12:16 --> 00:13:01

the seven skies and seven Earths compared to the outer shell of Allah subhanho wa Taala how insignificant they are. If this is what the Irish of Allah is, think about how amazing Allah subhanho wa Taala is, think about the Allah is above and beyond his Oddish if this is how amazing his Irish is, think about Allah subhanho wa Taala how much more amazing he is. And this is why reflect upon the dewasa you and I we make there are many drivers that we make do I when we are in times of distress do is that we make powerful do is that we learn from Lhasa Allahu Allah you ascend them and one interesting thing that you will note is that in all those two eyes, you always

00:13:01 --> 00:13:46

mentioned the outage of Allah subhanho wa Taala when a person is sick, we say what Allah Allah Alim Rob Bella Otto, Silla alim, why do we say the ash of Allah subhanho wa Taala because we say Oh Allah, just like you are the owner of this great honor your Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala. Likewise, you are clearly in control of this sickness and this distress that I'm going through, Oh Allah, you take care of it. So the point I'm trying to make is how amazing ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is how amazing is His creation, and we reflect upon that Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that this will bring you closer to Allah, this will bring you remind you of Allah subhanho wa Taala and hence,

00:13:46 --> 00:14:26

these are the people who are the intelligent ones in front of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why brothers and sisters reflection is not just only on them, reflection is also upon ourselves, look at the situation that we are in before 2020 No one could have expected that this is how 2020 will be will be like and we have no idea what's going to happen in the future. We had plans for this here. Look at all of what has happened to our plans. All this is in the control of Allah subhanho wa Taala once again, this all requires reflection, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us amongst those who reflect upon Allah in essence and by reflecting upon Allah it brings us closer to Allah

00:14:26 --> 00:14:39

subhanho wa Taala um you know, but I mean BarakAllahu li Walakum Quran are the them when I find out what yeah combat with the can Hakeem and stuff for Allah honey welcome what he said in Messina festival Philo inna who will have a full Rahim.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al Hamdulillah. Now with the whole witness starting in one itself, you know, when I was when I initially and fusina Alma sejati I'm Melina Mejia.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:25

00:15:26 --> 00:16:08

another sign of those people who are intelligent as Allah subhanaw taala. He highlights in the Quran are those who reflect and learn from the stories of the Quran at the end of Surah use of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says Lapa they can feed apostle see him in this Quran there are many stories. Now a lot of times today what we do is that we use these stories to put our kids to sleep. We use these stories to entertain others. Allah tells us that what is the purpose of these stories? Number one is a bar or it has to serve as a lesson for you. Why do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned out of all the Ambia that were sent, and according to a hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu

00:16:08 --> 00:16:55

alayhi wa sallam, there were 300 and something odd number the amount of messengers that were sent. And according to another Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem, there were 124,000 124,000 prophets that were sent in this dunya why is it that we find only 25 to 27 messenger Prophets and Messengers mentioned the Quran why? Because they serve as a lesson out of all those Allah chose these few and we know about their stories. Why because they all serve a lesson. We cannot say that no matter what situation we are in, we cannot say that I have nothing to learn from the Quran. Whatever situation we find ourselves in. We have different challenges challenges in our lives, whether sometimes is

00:16:55 --> 00:17:40

regarding family sometimes is regarding society sunnah is regarding the situation that we are living in Sunday is regarding our finances, no matter what the situation is, Will law he you pick up the Quran and you will find a solution in the Quran, you will find some story of some prophet in the Quran. And all these prophets stories were mentioned to us Lhasa Allahu Allah he was setting them and he read these to us why so that we can go back and Allah subhanho wa Taala says is not only an overall he says well I can pass the Allah de pena de what have seen a cliche, it explains everything. It explains everything. What of Sita Felicia in Wahoo then it is a guidance. It is a

00:17:40 --> 00:18:19

means of guidance. A lot of times in life we need guidance, we need someone to tell us what to do. Sometimes we are looking for answers. The Quran is saying that this is where you will find the answer. So these are the stories of the Quran And subhanAllah go from top to bottom. You go throughout these stories, you will learn so many different lessons from each of these stories are the money his son's story teaches us that shaytaan is our enemy and shaytaan is deceitful and no matter what we cannot do any we have to do everything in our capacity to stay away from Shaytaan Nuala his son taught us his story he taught us that you have to be consistent in giving Dawa and no

00:18:19 --> 00:19:05

matter what the situation is. You have to keep on going. He gave Dawa for 950 years and according to some Allah ma only 8080 People accepted it. Some think about that, that took more than so many years just to bring one person to Islam. Ibrahim alayhis salam taught us that Allah and His obedience comes before everything in our life. It comes before yourself it becomes it comes before our families. Nobody has some story taught us the immorality is not accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who are indulging in morality immorality, they will be cursed by Allah subhanho wa Taala Musala his story he taught us so many things his mother his the story of his mother taught us that

00:19:05 --> 00:19:46

when you put her to work couldn't Allah and when you listen to Allah subhanho wa Taala let the coffee while you will not have any fear in the here you will not have any grief of the past and you will not have fear of the future Musashi some story taught us that as a young man he was out there trying to serve justice. The Quran says what a Marbella should the who was toa, they know Oquendo Rhema. This is Mussolini, some in his youth. He was out there helping people out the story of Mussolini, some taught us the how to deal with uncertainty. And not only that, but the story of Musa lism also taught us that how you should in your life be logical when you're talking to people when

00:19:46 --> 00:20:00

you're talking to someone who does not understand Islam, talk logically and not emotionally vulnerable or name history taught us that when you have resources and when you have power, how to use them in such a way that is pleasing to Allah

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

So behind the what to either show everybody his son street taught us how to do business, how to be fair in your business and what is the destruction of Allah and how the destruction of Allah can call upon those when they cheat in their business. Dawood Islam story taught us justice Maya Malik Islam story taught us that how does Allah provide us and Allah is not in need of any circumstances to give us risk. Zakariya. Allah has some story taught us how to make dua and what to ask Allah when it comes to our children and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, his stories is a culmination of all these things that we learn and we learn them from the story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:20:41 --> 00:21:21

sallam, you cannot say that I cannot get anything from the Quran. Whatever situation that we will find ourselves in the Quran will be a means of guidance. Now, do we take that as a guidance? Will we be guided by the Quran that comes down to our attitude and how much we're willing to read the Quran and reflect upon the Quran hence, Allah says that the Quran is there for everyone. But for some people, it will be a means of guidance. For some people it will not be a means of guidance. If it's a guidance for you, you are amongst those that Allah subhanho wa Taala calls Odin l bow. So this is why brothers and sisters, whenever we have a situation, go back to the Quran, go back to the Cyril

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

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we will find what we need to do in this kind of situations. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to help us in our matters, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that may Allah lift up this this Bella in this Baba May Allah subhanho wa Taala remove this pandemic from all of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give shifa to all those who are sick there are many people who are in and out of the hospital, many family members of so many of us sitting over here, we ask Allah subhana wa that to give all them Shiva, all those who are healthy, may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep them healthy and protect them from any kind of illnesses. We ask Allah subhanho wa

Oh, we ask Allah to all those who have been affected financially. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help them in their in, in their situation. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us every good that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has ever asked for.
