Yesterday in our Satara we we completed the 18th Jos and in the 1800s, Allah subhana wa Tada begins with Surah Al Menon. And then so the node and then the beginning there's the beginning portion of Surah Furqan and surah Allah subhana wa Taala he continues the discussion has been going on before so I mean on whereas before sort of moving on anyone know?

00:00:24--> 00:01:05

So that hydrogen at the end of sort of Hydra Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, are you Aladeen Manu? Oh you people who believe Ilkka who wants to do what I will do Rob back home, what for? I don't hire. Now Allah come to freehand that submit yourself to Allah subhanho wa taala. Bow yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala and do righteous things so that you may become successful. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he begins, by what yeah, you're letting me know, this transitions into the next sutra. And in the very beginning of the next sutra, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For the Avila has known that success belongs to those and indeed those who have Iman in their heart and is manifest in

00:01:05--> 00:01:42

their actions. These people have become successful. And what's beautiful about this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala in the very beginning of the sutra, he says, of lucha and alchemy noon, and at the very end of the sutra, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Who are those who are not successful in who you flee oil cafiero? Say Morty has been used the word of Africa and you flee Oh, and then I'll caffeine on that these are the people who are successful and these are the people who are not successful, the believers are successful and the caffeine are not successful. Now in the beginning of the suit Allah subhanho wa Taala when he says on the other hand, when we know and I'm going to explain this is at

00:01:42--> 00:02:22

the very end, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned five characteristics of those believers. Number one is Alladhina Humphrey salatu him hos your own those who stand with humility in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in their Salaat I leave them Vitaly bro the Allah one and this is also the opinion of Ibrahim Munna hurry. This is the staff and the teacher of Imam Abu Hanifah Rahmatullah they, that they are of the opinion that this means a humility of the heart means that when we started before Allah subhanho wa taala, we're not just standing bodily, but our heart is also connected to Allah subhanho wa taala. And if that means that if I need to even close my eyes, and I need to

00:02:22--> 00:03:05

concentrate, and it's hell, if it helps me cut out all the other distractions, then that is absolutely fine. But making sure that when I'm standing before Allah subhanho wa taala, I'm not only physically present, but I'm mentally present. Imagine if a person was up for parole, for example, they're standing in front of the judge, and the judge is about to make a decision. They're standing there with the utmost amount of humility, and inside, they're praying, and they're making dua that Allah helped me, oh, Allah helped me. At the same way when we stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala for salad, we are mentally available, mentally present, physically present, emotionally present, and

00:03:05--> 00:03:46

we are connected to Allah subhanho wa taala. For at the end of the day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that I found the coolness of my eyes in the solid. And today many times we think of solid as a burden. Many times when it comes to the salons, we become lazy. Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about these people in the Quran, that this is a sign of hypocrisy, that when it comes to the salon, where either they don't either slotted to haha, who's one one arriba, that they push it off, and they they become lazy eventually, when the time comes around. So this is why when it comes to solid, we're not only just physically present, but we are emotionally and mentally present

00:03:46--> 00:04:27

before Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is the very first characteristic. The second thing is what levena whom I love we morally don't. Last Last night we shaquiesha was talking about this. But it's not only from the from the verbal point of view, that we say things that are unnecessary things that are not beneficial to us. But any kind of activity that does not render any kind of benefit in this dunya or the akhira. It falls into the category of a level. That also means that we sit on our phone, and for hours and hours. If you take 20 minutes here, 20 minutes there, half an hour here half an hour there and you accumulate the time, many of us we spend on social media, it will

00:04:27--> 00:05:00

probably come out to be two, three hours a day. That is called a language, something that does not benefit us in the hereafter. It does not even benefit benefit us in this dunya it falls into the category of language. Many of our youth, they sit down and play video games, three, four hours on end that falls into a level. So yes, they want to play fine, no problem. Find no problem. I grew up playing video games too. There's nothing wrong with that. But at the same time in limitation, making sure that everything is balanced, making sure that we're not engaged so much into one thing

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

think that our salad is missing out and other important things are being left out. So when Lavina whom I love we morally doing, the third one is when levena Whom Liza catify Are you known? Now this has been explained in two different ways but our own amount number one is those who give zakat, okay in this very simple and very straightforward. The other explanation given by our own ama is that those who make a constant effort of cleansing themselves, though, like for example, loss of 100, what Allah says for the Afla man Zakah This is from the Surah At the chumps that the indeed those have become successful, who clean themselves who cleanses themselves. So when we talk about

00:05:40--> 00:06:19

cleansing, it is usually in the in the meaning of spirituality, when we have hatred, when we have anger, when we have the love of this dunya when we have jealousy, when we have all these things in our heart, these are considered as a Murrah Kullu, the sicknesses of the heart and what we need to do is we have to make a constant effort to remove these kinds of things. This is why we sit in these Hala cars. This is why we listen to the Guru's This is why we listen to the hotbars to make ourselves better human beings and at the end of the day, to connect the heart to Allah subhanho wa taala. If the heart is connected to Allah, everything that will disseminate from us, it will be also

00:06:19--> 00:07:01

in accordance to what Allah subhana wa Tala wants so what Lavina who Melissa catify known next one will let you know humbly for rugi him Have you known those who protect their chastity that means that staying away from anything that can that can lead us to Zina homosexuality that was very prevalent within our society and so forth. All these kinds of things. They go against one Latina who followed him happy don't they go against the idea of protecting our chastity so that's why it's so important to especially in this day and age see Allah subhanaw taala does not say that do not commit Zina, Allah subhanho wa Taala says La takanobu. Zina la Takara was Zina that's why it's so important

00:07:01--> 00:07:41

that our youth and even adults we understand and our our deen has taught us that even when there is opposite gender interaction, there are etiquettes there are adapt for that also, we understand them and we apply them in our life or the end does not say that you completely just completely disengage and our Dean does not say that you become too relaxed to also but our Dean has taught us to take a middle path with John Walker the Attica John Locke Come on Martin was Sacco we have created you as a middle nation and rebalanced OMA, there is no effort and there's the fleet in this in this OMA but everything is balanced. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us then the next one is one Medina

00:07:41--> 00:08:20

whom the Amana team wa de Hebrew raw on those who fulfilled their trust. Anyone has entrusted you with something, whether it's something that's tangible, someone has given you something, you have to hold on to something, or if someone has given you information, someone has given you intelligence, and you you're supposed to hold on to that, not that you share that with everyone in the family, and you share that with everyone in the community when someone shares with you something as a secret and Wallahi you know, people would happen so many times in our communities in our families, we see this that we share secret information with others and then whenever there's a rift there's a conflict

00:08:20--> 00:08:58

between those two people automatically we start sharing that information with everyone this is an Amana when someone shares with us something that is regarding them a private matter it is an Amana that is why the Prophet SAW Allah why did some says I'll majority so Bill Amana when people are sitting in a Majelis and they are discussing something it is an Amana so this is the this is the next thing and finally ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says one lady you know whom Allah Salah wa T him you have your own. Now for those of you who have memorized the Quran, the inserted marriage ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, when you know whom Allah Salah to him you have alone the word salad is a

00:08:58--> 00:09:38

single word here and so the minute Allah uses the plural word, why is because Allah subhana wa Taala here in suited me know, ALLAH is talking about the characteristics of believers and believers are those who don't miss out any solid, they are very punctual about their prayers when the time comes, they are those who are going to be performing their prayers on time not delaying it to the last second so that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says when that you know whom Allah Salah to him you have you don't they protect their prayers. Now, we mentioned several things. If you think about it here this is the connection I want you to pay attention to this in the very beginning of what else

00:09:38--> 00:09:49

about how that I say but the US Lucha the word of lucha it comes from from this same room family in the Arabic language comes the word comes the word for love. What is the meaning of Allah?

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

Farmer Okay, now what is a farmer do think about this. What does a farmer do? A farmer he digs up the soil and He plants a seed in he covers it

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

up and he protects that seed does he know yes or no, he protects that seed. He put a scarecrow out there to ensure there are no birds or no squirrels or no rabbits, anything that comes close in destroying or preventing that seed from sprouting. Likewise, Why did Allah mentioned this? Because likewise a believer he's also protecting what is he protecting? He's protecting his Salaat he's protecting people's Amana. He's protecting his chastity. He's protecting himself from engaging in Allah. He's He's protecting himself from from committing Zina, and anything that is related to Zina is about protecting yourself, just like a farmer protects that seed. Likewise, a believer protects

00:10:47--> 00:11:27

themselves. We are going through a world where there is chaos there is fitna there are so many things that can distract us and pull us in different directions away from the right path. But this but this believer this movement and the minute they protect themselves, this is why Allah use the word of law so beautifully in the beginning of the surah. Another connection to the farmer is we've mentioned this before, what does a farmer do? He plants and he's He feeds that soil, and he takes care of that soil, and he makes money only once a year. Right? You remember I talked about this, he makes money only once a year, there is a time of harvest the harvest season, all year long. He works

00:11:27--> 00:12:10

hard for that one time. Likewise a believer they harvest and they work hard, and when do they harvest the harvest and the aka the harvest in the ark era. And this is why so beautifully Allah mentions and so a shoot off mankind that you read how to sell at the Zilla, houfy healthy, whoever wants the harvest of the hereafter Allah will increase in that woman can you read the house at dunya whoever wants to plan and then benefit here and get all the reward here and leave nothing for the hereafter. Allah says no t he minha will give you only a little of that benefit wama Allah who will fill him in a safe and in the hereafter there is nothing for us. So that is why it is so important

00:12:10--> 00:12:47

that as a believer, we understand that this is our place that Dunya is a place where we plant the seed, we water that seed, we take care of that seed, we let that seed sprout. Why because our time for harvest is going to be in in sha Allah in the Hereafter. And this is why all these people who have these characteristics what what is that type of harvest? You don't tell you so how Allah you look at the world today, a farmer who has let's just say if he's planting strawberries, and he's growing strawberries, there's always going to be some strawberries he has to throw away even after all the hard work some strawberries are gonna go straight into the garbage in the hereafter. All the

00:12:47--> 00:13:23

hard work that we've done. What is the result of that? A lady in a yeti Sunil FIRA dosa homefree hottie Dawn Allah subhanho wa Taala says that you will not just get a little in all your efforts will go to waste No, Your efforts will go to the hereafter and what will you get what will we get inshallah Allah Dena urethra and those Allah subhanaw taala will give gentle for those to these kinds of people. So I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us amongst these people. Once again Salat Alladhina hum, feast nothing harsh on humility humbleness and solid will let you don't mind love we mourn alone stay away from anything that's considered as a lover or vain when that you know home

00:13:26--> 00:14:05

will let you know Melissa codifier You don't always purifying ourselves always engaging in Tesco to neffs and then protecting our chastity fulfilling people's Amana and then finally the last thing the sixth The sixth thing is protecting our solid May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the believers. May Allah subhanaw taala make us go away from this dunya with believers and may Allah subhanaw taala resurrect us amongst the believers in the hereafter.
