more about a quick show here's

00:08:32--> 00:08:45

shacman showcase of since the microphone is with you but in the LA bar coffee come for reciting those verses of the Quran. Can you just briefly summarize what you read in sha Allah Tala and why you think why you chose those verses for the moment that we're in right now.

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

Baraka loving them, Chef Smolov mela him come to lay open Alameen salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Alaikum It was

00:08:53--> 00:08:57

long without enough to hide it fina because I couldn't have been ordered for them and automatic.

00:08:58--> 00:09:06

I mean, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us with the light of knowledge and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open for us the doors of understanding wisdom and knowledge. I mean,

00:09:08--> 00:09:51

I didn't really think much about which I asked but these few verses are from Surah 20 slot and they are in the first part of the surah kind of the second page of the surah. And the first verse talks about one of the main objectives of revealing the Quran to the prophets of Allah it was in the head of Orion add it here echo this, this this, this book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is revealed to the prophets of Allah Akbar. It was said that to be delivered to the humanity to guide people to what is best to what is better to what is most excellent. The word upward is a is a font of deal is a form of an Arabic language. That means it's better than something it's better than something else. It's

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

most excellent that somebody can reach or it is the key to that character. That to the best character that the best

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

embodiment for was the prophets of Allah Almighty was Senator, when I read this idea in the head of the letter here are two or more umeshu meaning that in the second thing that it gives glad tidings to the believers, that Allah subhanaw taala promises the Greek word under the judgment.

00:10:17--> 00:10:54

I kind of went back to the very first moment of the inception of Revelation when the prophets of Allah when he was sending them, receive that to and from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada we all know the story of the Prophet and his salatu salam was in the cave of ALA and then Gibreel came to him and he said, if Parliament and of your party we didn't know what to read and then read Alia salaam repeated this three times. Then he delivered to him the first part of the revelation o'clock this weekend that he had read in the name of your board, the One who created halal and said I mean Allah, the Quran open a Quran. So after he told me read for the first time, and then he specified the type of reading that

00:10:54--> 00:11:35

you need to read in the name of your board. And then he reminded him with his region, the One who created you from a piece of cloth, and then he repeated the same command again o'clock, but Abu can o'clock read, and your Lord is the Most Generous in Surah Surah. Allah subhanaw taala told us the Quran is the is the source of guidance for the best character. And then the reward for this is abundant Bella Subhana wa jal under the judgment and the first time he gave him a grant to read the Quran. And you're always the most generous. The idea of Quran again, it's a superlative form. That means he's the most generous subhanaw taala prompted the scholars to identify aspects of the

00:11:35--> 00:12:12

generosity of ALLAH SubhanA wa that how can we translate or understand Allah is the most generous, and the proposed different interpretations of Tafseer some of them said that Allah is the most generous because ALLAH SubhanA with Allah is taking care of the prophets of Allah while he was in. He's the one who's the most generous, that he's not going to burden you with the responsibility of the message. without actually having you back. Without supporting you is more generous to leave you alone with the message of Islam. Other scholars took it too generous about reward, which is also reflected in the A and sort of insert where you wish you will be in a linear manner slightly had

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

those who do writer's work, you will be rewarded, and there is still on him read and the generosity of Allah will reward you abundantly when you read the Quran. And we know when you read one letter in the Quran, Allah gives you Hassan Hassan has multiplied by 10. But some scholars said, it also means read, I don't really think about reward, read, and the reward will come from Allah subhanho wa Taala in ways that you will never imagine, because he's the most generous, one of the most and I will conclude with this point, a beautiful reflections on this idea of Allah being the most generous. Some scholars said what is the definition of generosity?

00:12:48--> 00:13:27

So the speculated different definitions and then the said, who are thought will Maryam Becky Billa I want to give something that is meaningful, something that is beneficial to others, without expecting something in return. And this is this something that you might be expected return doesn't have to be materialistic, even expecting Thank you, is expecting something that would detract from the concept of generosity or the quality of being generous. So this is a level of generosity, but there is even higher level than this, then expecting nothing in return. These are coming karimun Yeah, hello octogenarian. Somebody does something bad to you, if somebody wrongs you, and then you forgive them.

00:13:28--> 00:14:09

And you're actually able to let go of grudges to let go of bad feelings. This is a high level of nobility and a generous character. But one is not expected to maintain the same feelings towards the person who actually wronged them after the forgave them. Right? You might have this good character to forgive somebody. But it's pretty hard to still maintain the same loving, caring feelings towards that same person as you used to have these feelings for them before the Iran deal. almost the only exception to this is Allah subhana wa Tada. You commit sins, you literally violate the rights of Allah. And then you just repent simply asking Him for forgiveness, He will not only let go of your

00:14:09--> 00:14:36

sins, He will actually even love you more, he will be more benevolent to you he will be more merciful to you. So no one actually changed to even having better feelings without of course direct comparison between humans and Allah subhanaw taala but no one actually is expected to go back to the initial feelings they had towards that person or even having better feelings for that person. After they have wronged them. Only Allah subhana wa Tala does this out of His love for us and out of his benevolence to us Subhana wa Tada.

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

One of the Arab points expressed this point

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

he said Kula mercy to the Quran does it lead to football and the more I increase in my shortcomings in committing sins and making mistakes, you benevolence just increases he's talking to Allah subhanaw taala coulomb has the tutor so you're on does it lead to football and can nearby certainly a soldier will can be a bit toxic a soldier will formula

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

As if by my shortcoming. My shortcomings themselves are worthy of your benevolence or worthy of your love. Only Allah subhanaw taala does this to people. This is only one reflection of how Allah subhanaw taala is the most generous, having the Quran in the back of our minds to be the compass to be the direction to be the guy that we always go back to we always adjudicate in our matters, we always refer back to thinking about the reward that Allah subhanaw taala will give to us thinking about that the Quran is a heavy word and that's an OPR like a colon tequila but Allah subhanaw taala is the most generous that he will always in sha Allah be in taking care of us and be in sha Allah

00:15:40--> 00:15:50

subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala will always be there to guide us once we show this aptitude to the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala opens the doors of guidance, just

00:15:51--> 00:16:28

kind of a random reflection link in between how the Prophet alayhi salatu salam received the very first verses of the Quran and how Allah subhanaw taala literally is telling him that in the head of Quran, the reality here come and the reward is still there. We wish you the main secular training that insha Allah Allah subhanaw taala blesses us with the more we connect with the Quran and the more we read the Quran online, because the beautiful recitation in the beautiful reflection, so the Quran is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. It is a manifestation of His mercy, a manifestation of His generosity, a manifestation of His wisdom. And Allah azza wa jal is too generous to reveal this

00:16:28--> 00:17:15

Quran without supporting us as we seek to abide by the Quran. One of the things that we learned from the sun if you know mama Shafi Rahim Allah mentioned that every time I read the Quran, it gives me something new, a different reflection. I think that that is the whatever juncture we are at in life. Different ayaats speak to us in a very different way doesn't change the meaning of the Quran and enriches in our lives. Something very beautiful, something very powerful as as we move forward. I want to move to Schechtman shipbob So far, can you speak to a verse in the Quran perhaps or a passage something that in these last few months has truly stuck with you that you've been looking at

00:17:15--> 00:17:22

differently that you've been looking at with a sense of, of a renewed spirits a renewed or renewed connection?

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

hamdulillah Babalon Amin

00:17:30--> 00:17:36

shadow Allah Allah and Allah in Saudi Hain or shadow under Mohammed and I go on a sudo so Allah ID

00:17:37--> 00:17:42

while early he was actually he was selling them at a Sleeman Kathira money name with Dean and my bag.

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

I'd actually like to build off of something that should use of the first i that he recited in the Quran. Yeah, had the Lydda t here up on

00:17:56--> 00:18:00

Allah azza wa jal talking about the Quran being that guide

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

there's a dua

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

that is considered to be

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

the most beneficial do anybody know what that was the most beneficial guy

00:18:19--> 00:18:26

is scholars may not agree on this but shake loose salmon Tamia Rahim Allah since we put them at the knees on his side and as he's wanting to

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

shake loose salmon Tamia Rahim Allah

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

He said to Emoto in fact, a dua

00:18:37--> 00:18:45

for either who was who am Hola Hola Hola. Hola McBrearty. So I pondered over

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

the most beneficial DUA

00:18:51--> 00:18:57

and I found it to be asking a lot to aid you to please Him.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

asking Allah

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

to aid you in your attempts to to please Him.

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

He says the most legit two who feed Surah Al Fatiha

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

ear canal and we'll do what you can to stay.

00:19:16--> 00:19:20

Then I found an assorted Fatiha it is You alone we worship

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

and you're eight alone we seek tight where's the DUA?

00:19:29--> 00:19:35

I'm actually asking you I know I know most of the people speak to the cameras I'm talking to you. I need an answer.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

Where's the DUA? Yeah, can I will do a Yeah, can I stay?

00:19:43--> 00:19:57

Well, you're gonna stay. That's correct. Because when you recite Surah Al Fatiha and you say Alhamdulillah Hello Bella Alameen. Allah responds, Allah response. He says Hamadani i de

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


00:20:00--> 00:20:12

As you resize volatile fatty and I'm gonna get back to the eyes. As you recite Surah Al Fatiha, you should actually pause to ponder over the fact that Allah azza wa jal is responding to you.

00:20:13--> 00:20:31

When you recite Alhamdulillah Ramadan me every single time Allah is saying hammy then he had the My servant is praising me some of the mindset pause as if you are hearing Allah azza wa jal responding to you in that moment.

00:20:33--> 00:20:50

Or Walkman or him ethna either. Yeah. Abdi, My servant, my slave has extolled me. What's extolled me? What's the difference between praise and extol? I know we just throw words around how many thinner? What does that actually mean?

00:20:51--> 00:21:12

Want to take a stab? So it still is to actually ethminer Either your Abdi alright ethna is like from the word same word if name so it's like you've done something twice. So it's like a repetitive praise ethna Alia extol is to praise again.

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

Maliki yo, Medina. jedynie. Abdi

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

My servant has

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

you got to work from a Jedi

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

glorified me like a Loki, the one from Bosnia he came with the words I love Kayla.

00:21:32--> 00:21:39

Majed any Abdi Paul's as if you're hearing it, then yeah can I can assign

00:21:41--> 00:21:50

her the beanie ouabain Abdi This is between me and my slave one the Abdi masa and

00:21:51--> 00:21:55

a mind slave shall have what he asked for

00:21:56--> 00:22:01

when we say yeah can I will do what you can to stay in which means you're gonna stain is actually part of the DUA

00:22:04--> 00:22:13

the Quran guides to the path that is up one and what are we asking for? What are we asking for in salon?

00:22:14--> 00:22:32

Dena Swapan mousse stepping, guide us to that straight path. This is what the Quran does it guides to that straight path, the speech of Allah azza wa jal and we're asking Allah to guide us to the straight path. And now I'm going to get to the actual item that I want us to pay attention to.

00:22:33--> 00:22:56

Because it has a special relevance to where we are at this particular point in history. And I want us to also think about the fact that what we need most in our lives, Allah azza wa jal makes it the most available and what we need most for our guidance, Allah azza wa jal makes that more obligatory upon us

00:22:58--> 00:23:02

the thing you need most than life to live to sustain life as what

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

air pipe and then what?

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

Water what's more air or water,

00:23:12--> 00:23:15

air for sure. Life then what?

00:23:17--> 00:23:22

Food what's more water or food, water, Allah azza wa jal

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

Coenen the things that we need for to sustain physical life, Allah makes that more available than anything else. And the things that we need to sustain our spiritual life. Allah doesn't leave it up to your eye to decide, oh, maybe I'll pray my Sooners today at night or whatever. No, those things are an obligation because we need them the most Surah Al Fatiha we need that more than any other surah the DUA Fatiha we need that more than any other dua Dino Sonata Musa team

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

and Allah azza wa jal does not stop at saying guide us to the straight path he says what anybody know the next I

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

anybody stuck for Allah Yeah, I'm gonna ask the young brother when you go ahead

00:24:12--> 00:24:19

Sirata Latina untidy him or even mug lluvia de Berlin, this i

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

i feel and this time

00:24:24--> 00:24:26

has affected me differently.

00:24:28--> 00:24:35

Because being guided to the straight path is one thing in imagining yourself traversing the path is another thing.

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

In the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Sadam often and more than several occasions the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam would tell his companions that when you're making do I think about this or that, like when he told me earlier, the low time there and who, when you ask for guidance, think about the path when you ask for Sudan think about actually reaching your target. Like you're actually picturing this

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

So when you're asking Allah to guide you, you're not stopping there you're saying Sirata letting the path of those whom you have favorite

00:25:13--> 00:25:21

time. That means we're actually supposed to consider who are those whom Allah azza wa jal has favorite and what was their path?

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

I need to see them. I need to actually have a role model.

00:25:29--> 00:25:39

I need to be able to walk that path. envision it. Because Allah azza wa jal told us to say that and there's a reason behind that.

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

Shameless plug. The first every Tuesday, every Ric

00:25:46--> 00:25:56

shake almost today man talks about those heroes of Islam. The people who are on that path those whom Allah azza wa jal, an AMA Allah him

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

and Allah azza wa jal talks about that and sold it to Nisa

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

for like family dinner and I'm Allahu Allah him in in the beginning Siddiqui was shut down sorry him, who are those whom Allah has favored the prophets, the set DP, those what is a Siddiq. What is that? It is a person

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

who has reached the level of what they call a CIT DP

00:26:26--> 00:26:36

command on fill in PA the level was only Sallalahu. It was somewhat command on Phillip classy Lin moto sin.

00:26:37--> 00:26:48

The one who has reached the pinnacle of emulating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the one who has reached the pinnacle of sincerity for the one who sent him.

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

What does it mean to be from the truthful difference between a Saudi and acidic

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

the prophets Elijah was salam Sadiq Khan, be sick be truthful.

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

Adhere to truthfulness,

00:27:05--> 00:27:09

because sin leads to piety righteousness.

00:27:10--> 00:27:16

And that leads to agenda and a person will continue to say the truth

00:27:18--> 00:27:24

and try his hardest to be truthful until he is written with Allah as acidic

00:27:25--> 00:27:47

acid that's a level that we should aspire for. Like I'm gonna and I'm Allahu Allah human in the beginning was Sidney King and then what was Shahadat the Sadiq according to the many of the scholars of Tafseer is is even higher than the Shahada. How do we get to that level? Like these are questions we actually have to think about and ask ourselves.

00:27:49--> 00:28:00

That's that Lulubelle him having those high aspirations for ourselves, so that we actually step up a level how do I become a Siddiq? It's not just that you're true with your tongue, you got to be true at your heart.

00:28:01--> 00:28:07

You true to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's a class you true and your actions.

00:28:08--> 00:28:25

The lowest level of being true and your actions is that your public appearance matches your private appearance, your private appearance matches your public appearance, that is that at the minimum, that you are as good as in private as you are in public.

00:28:26--> 00:28:37

So that you reach that level of being acidic, and the Shahadat the martyrs has significant impact on us in these last few months.

00:28:39--> 00:28:44

Because you see them now this is not somebody reading about in a history book, which is important, by the way,

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

but now it's right in front of your face. And you see these people Subhan Allah

00:28:52--> 00:28:57

and Allah azza wa jal knows best if they've reached that level of depth here but it looks like

00:28:58--> 00:29:03

people who patiently endure whatever trial Allah has put them through

00:29:04--> 00:29:09

and praise Allah azza wa jal with their tongues. Most of us are not on that level.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

Most of them somebody hits your car you you might say something that you shouldn't say in the message it

00:29:18--> 00:29:22

is not coming 100 It is people losing a kids hamdulillah

00:29:24--> 00:29:39

no curse words or nothing coming out. Subhanallah The point is you start because a lot of this stuff might feel real esoteric, like it's just something in the past and nobody can ever reach that level. I think now,

00:29:40--> 00:29:47

what has happened is like Subhan Allah is something to aspire to, because that person is living in front of you. You seeing it

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

was Solly him, the righteous and they are those who are obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala and strive to avoid anything that would be displeasing to Allah as

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

with John. So when we make the DUA and salted, fattier, Sirata Latina and Nantahala him, we should have a picture in our head, Allah azza wa jal called certain people in the Quran, Sadiq and Siddiqa who was the Siddiqa.

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

In the Quran,

00:30:19--> 00:30:20


00:30:21--> 00:30:47

we have a certificate of authenticity or that's what they call it from them I had the thing, but Siddiqa in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal called Marian at a certain as a deacon, we're all mu and he is an ISA Siddiqa. What does that mean? cathedra to sit, as she was not just true for what her tongue but with her heart, her actions and so on and so forth. And look at her story in the Quran and emulate day.

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

emulate her Saba her to walk call upon Allah azza wa jal, and

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

so on and so forth. The point is, bringing life

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

to our salon

00:31:00--> 00:31:17

through understanding the DUA that we are making to Allah subhanaw, taala, and salt and Fatiha. I personally feel like in these last several months, things have changed. And on a personal note, the way that I look at Sirata Latina and I'm tiny,

00:31:18--> 00:31:27

the general takeaway is, they are those that path, the path of those who had knowledge of Allah subhana who was at it and what pleases Him

00:31:29--> 00:31:34

and they adhered to it to the best of their ability, not like those

00:31:35--> 00:31:47

who earned Allah azza wa jal is angry because they know and they choose not to obey Him, or those who are straying. Those who just do whatever without actually seeking knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala they will lower animals along with someone

00:31:49--> 00:31:52

else you could pass to Chef yesterday to actually

00:31:53--> 00:31:54


00:31:56--> 00:32:23

all jokes aside, we say welcome to the United States from Bosnia, right was our chef, Chef. Yes. Happy look Allah beautiful reflection from checked out. I think as he took one of them, literally from the pseudo we read most right? What's something that has stood out to you from the Quran or something you'd like to reflect on? It's anything that's open and shut silence usually, that's your heart is open to in the moment, and a lot of anatomy sort of La cinema, Barack Obama didn't

00:32:24--> 00:33:03

come to Sleeman Kathira mama dad, honestly, of course of Quran pit of Allah subhanho wa Taala every single word is word of wisdom, a divine wisdom from Allah azza wa jal and sometimes because the Quran is really it's, you could say it's a turner because it's attribute of Allah azza wa jal. So it's wisdom is also eternal as well. And every single time you will find a way to connect with the Quran different than maybe last year or the year before that or even yesterday. And that's the beauty of it. Subhan Allah she has ever been to Rahim Allah to Allah. He said that sometimes he would read 100 tafsir for an IRA try to understand the meaning of it. And he still he wasn't

00:33:03--> 00:33:48

satisfied 100 to suit from from the past and so on and he still doesn't feel satisfied. He's not getting what he's looking for. So he goes out in the open and he puts his cheeks on the ground. You have to Roger have to wrap up his face on the on the ground and the dust asked like humbling himself asking ya allah Yeah, my limo Alemany we refer him as a man for him, me. Y'all Allah. You thought though the knowledge give me that knowledge. And you gave me Solomon the understanding. Give me the understanding of the Quran. So lately with the situation in Gaza, one of the things that I became more attracted to when it got to the Quran really is going back and reading the ayat and the sewer

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

that exclusively or specifically talk about the story of Musa alayhis salaam and Bani Israel.

00:33:54--> 00:34:29

Like I want to understand this whole thing in context, in the divine context, the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. We know that Musa alayhis salam in terms of the Gambia, he is the number one prophet or at least would say, he is the prophet that was mentioned the most by name in the Quran. More than 180 plus times was mentioned by name. Although the Quran was revealed to who to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam he was given to Muhammad and Muhammad Salah to Allah wa salam ala by name was mentioned five times only four times by the name Muhammad at one time by the name Ahmed

00:34:30--> 00:35:00

Musa alayhis salam over 100 plus 180 plus by name. We mentioned the Quran. There's a reason for that. Also, when you study Surah Al Baqarah, Allah subhanaw taala begins or the buckler by Alif Lam Meem that you can look it up. This is the book, Laurie Buffy there's absolutely no doubt in it. One of the biggest challenge any human author will put in their book when they say I'll challenge you to find any discrepancies in my book at the beginning of this book. And here's the difference of how

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

whatever it says this is the book, there's absolutely no doubt in it. So don't even try.

00:35:06--> 00:35:28

Why? Because it was sent guidance, it was back again to guidance, couldn't move talking. When Allah described the guidance, no one was righteous. He described them in four verses after that. Then two verses after that about the non believers, and about 13 verses about the hypocrites, and from there on more than 100 Plus verses speak about Venezuela.

00:35:30--> 00:35:38

Like wow, the transformation, the believers and unbelievers are hypocrites. And then Venezuela in that coalition is unique interest interesting to understand.

00:35:39--> 00:36:00

And you will find almost dimensioned Venezuela almost in every single surah. So total causes sort of the normal sort of GPA, and almost every sort solotaroff, like in every sort of ALLAH SubhanA wa speak about them. So the dilemma, they would wonder, why would ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala speak but then he saw into Ahmed Mohammed in the Quran more often. So because it's a lesson for us.

00:36:01--> 00:36:11

That means that challenge of Musa alayhis salam that he had to deal with 1000s of years ago will be continuous. The Remnant over will continue even our time. And that's what we see today.

00:36:12--> 00:36:31

And you will see some IR that gives certain irony about the circumstance that we'll see in. So when Allah subhanaw says, in the context of Bani Israel in being instilled in Egypt and the foreground, he's been harassing them and he's just a heinous at home UW have now killing their children enslaving their women.

00:36:32--> 00:37:18

Pamela sounds familiar. And then most Alice I'm told his people call Carla Musala for Mr. inocula He was bureau in an orderly law unit to hammer Yasha I mean, everybody will have to go to the mall talking. So he tells his people in the midst of this situation, when they've been abused and oppressed and destroyed by the Quran And subhanAllah the irony of our time today how things are the opposite way? He is telling his people he says while I'm also on a call Mr. No biller is the you know, biller in seek that aid. Yeah, cannabidiol can stain seek that aid only from ALLAH SubhanA wa Donna and find patients with him. persevered and patients with Allah's origin. So the word is there,

00:37:18--> 00:37:43

you know, in the Arabic language, any word that starts with Elif, Cinta has the meaning of solicitation like you're soliciting something, you're requesting something, and that's it, the political out, you're soliciting out is the you know, I'm seeking that out, which is basically aid and support, what kind of support what kind of aid is open, all kinds of divine help that I can get. I'm in need of it.

00:37:44--> 00:38:01

I'm in need of that help from Allah Subhana Allah in whichever capacity and whichever way that comes to me is that you know, Billa he says you need to seek help and assistance and aid from Allah subhanho wa taala. He is speaking to the people who had absolutely no support from anybody else around them.

00:38:02--> 00:38:03


00:38:04--> 00:38:19

They were still in Egypt, and the ground is in control of their lives. He's basically barricaded in Israel, not allowed to go out. He's controlling their men and women, their children, their lives completely it says there because of his lives basically.

00:38:21--> 00:38:23

And Musa came to take them out of that misery.

00:38:25--> 00:38:37

So eventually, as he was telling them to come out, stay in OB la he was Bill you find aid and support with Allah subhanho wa Taala was Biru. Persevere in patience,

00:38:38--> 00:38:47

when it comes to the subject of patience, ALLAH SubhanA wa to describe it in many different ads in the Quran. But one of those verses of the Quran when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says God

00:38:50--> 00:39:35

in the manga for SIBO, and Jerome billary haisa, those who persevere in patients shall get the reward without measure. What does that mean? What's the value of being patient? When Allah is asking you for what's the value of this the value is that there is no price tag on it. And the value of it is with Allah Subhana Allah who promised you with it, if we the way we measure measure valuables in our life, we give them specific measurement units, right? So if you'd like to measure or or metal, what unit would you use for that as your ma tongs? If you want to value if you want to measure meat? What what do you use? pounds? If you're going to be measuring something valuable like cheese, for

00:39:35--> 00:39:51

example, specifically, artisan cheese, what do you want ounces? And if you're going to be if you're going to be measuring gold, what do you use? grams? When it comes to diamond, what do you use? carats? When it comes to good deeds? What do we use?

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

With Karla Daraa? The weight of an atom the weight of a speck of dust basically what does that mean? The more than

00:40:00--> 00:40:21

levelled the item, the more you focus on the little amount of it, the smallest tiniest amount is valuable, nothing should go to waste. Now when it comes to patience, if good deeds are measured by the weight of a speck of dust, patience, what is the measurement unit for patients with Joomla?

00:40:23--> 00:40:24

There is none.

00:40:26--> 00:40:32

Literally, there is none. Why is that? Because there is no price tag on this. It's priceless.

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

That's why Allah says in the manual for saguna agilon Be ready ASAP those who truly persevere and patients, they shall get their word without measure.

00:40:42--> 00:41:01

Allah subhana will open the treasure of heavens for them the treasures of Jen. Like there is no price tag on being patient. Which is why the prophets awesome says Matt Bucha had an iota and an firewalla Oh, Simon a suburb. No one has ever been given something of a value more than being patient.

00:41:02--> 00:41:09

If you lose it, you're done. You lose control of your life, you are under control, you have control of everybody who's making you upset.

00:41:10--> 00:41:16

But if you still remain fit says fat and fast and strong. You don't control and you drive the other other person crazy.

00:41:18--> 00:41:29

And that's what's happening there. Subhanallah these brothers are some other than a manifestation of Allah he of this. No one is there to help them and aid them except for ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala so they're going back to him say Yara

00:41:30--> 00:41:56

Medina Illa. Allah, we have nobody about Allah subhanaw taala second thing, what can we do? Food, the scarce water barely, they move from one place to the other one, even when they go on intense on the beach, and they still bombard and being killed the llama Stan losing the loved ones. And today we've seen unfortunately, just another war crime going into the hospital to kill people

00:41:57--> 00:42:38

and all of this thing, and what do they say? In that Allahu Allah, your journey we all belong to Allah, turn our attention be. So most Allison says was Bill in an orderly law he used to hammer Yasha home and anybody they are the land belongs to Allah, He gives it to whomever he wills subhanho wa Taala whoever he was obviously bad of his servants, righteous or otherwise, so it's a matter of test for us. We alternate in the ownership of this land, as Allah subhanaw mentioned over here, so no one can claim this to be there forever, while afterwards clean, and Aloka. And that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala as the reward for patients, he says, the ultimate outcome, the ultimate return

00:42:38--> 00:43:09

will always be for the most righteous. So the battle that we see in our life, we deal with the shaytaan we deal with the enemies with a with the oppressors and so on. At the end of the day, the ultimate return and the ultimate outcome Allah promise is to be with the for that for the righteous. And that's what we need to fight for. To remain that righteous, to stand for justice, to stand for the heart and for the truth and see it from Allah Subhan Allah first and foremost and persevering patients on this path may Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for our brothers and sisters because they are

00:43:12--> 00:43:13

beautiful reflections.

00:43:14--> 00:43:25

Most parents are bless you and indeed Subhan Allah the connection, Quran guides Allah subhanaw taala Anna gift to the Quran, Allah Azza promises you his support, but you have to remain patient.

00:43:26--> 00:43:42

You need an example of patients in front of you and Allah azza wa jal has blessed us by showing us legends and real time. Examples of patients who can no longer be patient with their trials that pale in comparison to the people of Gaza and they see the people who have as

00:43:43--> 00:44:31

and this is the history of patience and Musa Annie's Saddam has people, advising his people with words that would be just as relevant today, as they were however many 1000s of years ago which means the Quran in its gift is always relevant to us as well. Allah azza wa jal when he gave us these words, Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows what has been what will become and what is needed for us. And so these words are timeless words as is the entire Quran zoeken Allah her Imam Tom Hamdulillah you usually host podcasts. Those of you that aren't familiar you can see Mom Tom live dogman disrupted on cocaine. Why do you want to abandon Joe Biden so bad? What is your problem with Joe Biden? Now

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

actually, I'm asking, gave me this back and then I just

00:44:36--> 00:44:40

was walking around Seattle. And Seattle was a serious question

00:44:41--> 00:44:54

about the Quran. What are you what's on your heart in mind right now with this one, and then our human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala MBIA will mursaleen Nabina Muhammad was in mo Hamdulillahi Surah

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

You know, for me, there's a handful of ads in the Quran that

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

They're just absolutely heart stoppers. That when you come across them, it just stops everything you're doing and it really just kind of punches you in the gut. And one of them in particular that I've been thinking a lot in the past 100 plus days, was a statement of a loss poem to oughta. alum yet Nila Lena Amendola and Tasha coloboma, decorilla woman as a male hawk.

00:45:22--> 00:45:42

That was found out I said, Isn't it time for the people who have believed that their hearts fear from the remembrance of Allah? And what is the standard of the truth? Well, Iacono Kalinina auto Kitab me in Pablo, photo La La Himal eMod, a concert Kulu boom.

00:45:43--> 00:46:00

And that they not be like the people who have given or been given the book before them. And a long time passed, and their hearts became hard. Okay, theobromine home, firstly, Kuhn. And a lot of them are rebellious sinners.

00:46:01--> 00:46:24

And subhanAllah. When we were in Seattle, and somebody asked us in the q&a, they said, you know, why is a law allowing all this to happen? All of us are glued to our phones, all of us are watching, you know, the cowardly acts of genocidal violence. Things we've never seen before, at least most of us haven't seen before, at least not live streamed.

00:46:25--> 00:46:40

And you know, the thing that kind of occurred to me is that, you know, Allah subhanaw taala might be trying to wake us up. And this might be the beginning of the SBAC. The causes that Allah has placed for us to liberate Philistine

00:46:42--> 00:46:54

is that it all starts with a reviving of the heart. The situation that Allah subhanaw taala poses in this area, is that there came a time

00:46:55--> 00:47:35

from, you know, long after the revelation, just like you know, when the revelation comes, you've got, the prophet is with you, you've got the miracles around you. It's very easy to have your heart set on fire, but then what happens, then you get comfortable, then you get mixed up in the dunya, as the Prophet salallahu Salam warned us, he didn't fear for us poverty, as he said on a Serato Sadam, he feared for us that the doors of the dunya will be thrown open to us, and that we will get too comfortable that we will get to addicted to the sweetness of this dunya. And that that would actually be the cause of our humiliation, called Sadaqa Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:47:35--> 00:48:16

he spoke the truth 100% And a lost pounds all of a sudden this idea that there will come this distance, so that it will be even possible to say either yes or no and toxicological medical womanism. And isn't it time? Like the rhetorical sort of device here implies that yes, this time has come to a rhetorical question. So you best believe it's time that you start actually, when you recite the core and it actually shakes you that you start to get goosebumps, that you start to see your life flash before your eyes. Subhanallah you know what, yesterday, I was buttoning up

00:48:17--> 00:48:18

my shirt.

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

And when I reached the top button, it was just a little tight around my neck. And you know, I thought of, I thought of those little kids who were delivered those body bags.

00:48:30--> 00:48:33

And they thought that they were winter jackets.

00:48:34--> 00:48:37

And they were jumping up and down and seriously, it choked me up.

00:48:38--> 00:49:26

So the time has come if we want to. If we want to liberate Palestine, may Allah make it. So in our lifetimes, if we want to be a source of that victory, and aid to our brothers and sisters, it has to start somewhere. And it starts with you. And it starts with your heart. And it starts with going back to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. And going back to the truth that he revealed the truth that He gave us to guide the lessons and the story of most of the lessons that he put all over for us to ponder over again and again and again, the tools, the strategies, the tactics of our own liberation in this life and salvation in the next life to be on and equally che has been given right

00:49:26--> 00:49:51

to us in front of our hands. If only we took advantage of it. May Allah make us be people who take advantage of the guidance that he gave us a lot of data out and bought a coffee man because I can look at the path to victory is only through a president heart. When we're talking about patience that is found in the heart and we're talking about victory. It is found first and foremost through President heart is panela I think many of us

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

could say that some of our appetites have changed and bitten the nighttime Our hearts have changed as well. And we feel a little

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

less connected to this material world and it's delusions, a little more connected to Allah subhanaw taala to the OMA of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the best part of it right now, which will be the case as the prophet slice I mentioned, if and when Surah victorius group, may Allah subhanaw taala bless them and give them victory and allow our hearts to be filled with that which is pleasing to Him a llama. I mean,

00:50:25--> 00:50:35

Dr. Richman. Desikan laugher for your patience. He Tama homeschool in the night I know what is it that comes to your heart and mind right now from the Quran.

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

I'll be interesting ARCHIE MILLER, from the levels themselves who love

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

this panel I was thinking on on Friday, when the ruling came down from the International Court of Justice, that many Muslims were very

00:50:51--> 00:51:30

disappointed they feel he didn't go far enough. And every single Muslim desires that day that Folstein will be freed May Allah make it soon. But it reminded me of some Ayat recently from social causes. And from superfat were Allah subhanho wa taala. He tells the Prophet Muhammad wa salam in the very end of the surah in Allah the follow the article Quran Allah rah dukkha, Allah Muhammad, on the Prophet Muhammad wa salam was being kicked out of Mecca and making the migration to Medina, Allah subhanho wa taala, he gave him this verse, where Allah said, Indeed the one was imposed the Quran upon you will shall surely bring you back to this place of return.

00:51:31--> 00:51:36

And so the Prophet was being told Alia sort of slam that he would return to Mecca one day.

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

And six years later, you had a dream.

00:51:40--> 00:51:44

And the dream he woke up very excited. And he told his companions that I had a dream.

00:51:45--> 00:52:01

And we were in Mecca, next to the caliber, when we were doing fell off, and we were shipping alized the widget, and some of us then shaved our heads, and some of us trimmed our heads. And so it brings me to the Treaty of Hodeidah, which to me was very kind of hit me recently,

00:52:03--> 00:52:39

when the Prophet Muhammad Hassan then took those companions 1400 of them and they marched from Medina back towards Mecca, hoping to perform Amara and the 60 year, but they were stopped, and Kurose not let them go. And they negotiated the price and for different messengers to the Prophet Mohammed Al Salam in her debut the plane to negotiate that what do you want and the Prophet is saying, we just want to go and pray. We just were here in peace, we just want to make ombre. And each time that messenger from a different tribe that push was close to came back and told Qureshi just let them make ombre and courageous like, No, we're not gonna let them we're not gonna let them

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

and then the Treaty of who they be is ultimately contracted. And the conditions of the treaty, were not very desirable or to be in the best interest of the Muslims to some of the companions.

00:52:54--> 00:52:57

Some of those conditions were what you're not going to make, although this year.

00:52:58--> 00:53:32

Another condition if someone converts from Makkah, and goes to Medina to be a Muslim, then they have to send him back. But if someone leaves Islam from Medina and goes to Mecca, they're allowed to stay. And so the prophet has some contracts the Treaty and the Companions who wish to make ombre right, they're disappointed they cannot make ombre. And Allah, Allah one, he comes to the Prophet so somebody's asking questions, aren't we on the truth? Aren't they disbelievers? Aren't you the messenger of God, and he's pleading that come on, come on. And the Prophet of Islam what's what's amazing to me is on the journey back,

00:53:33--> 00:53:47

he grabs Omar and he tells Omar that salt fat was just revealed in for the HANA. Lika tamo. Bina, indeed, we have opened for you a great opening. And Omar actually asked the Prophet Muhammad Salam, he said, Is this really a fad? Is it really an opening?

00:53:49--> 00:54:22

And what really is fascinating about this treaty is that the scholars mentioned there was actually greater than any conquests that happened in the life of the prophet I. Remember, somebody mentioned this, he said it was a greater victory for the Muslims and anything they fought physically. because it allowed Islam to spread there was a 10 year ceasefire, and it allowed Islam to spread all around the region and the Muslims doubled. And of course, when Qureshi ultimately broke the treaty, that allowed the Muslims in two years, the next year, the professor Ahmed Amara with the Muslims, and the eighth year, they came back and conquered Mecca.

00:54:23--> 00:54:27

And so the lesson I want to take from this is the companions.

00:54:28--> 00:54:31

When the treaty was being enacted, they were wishing for more.

00:54:32--> 00:54:59

Just like today, we wished for more, we want the victory to come. The prophesy son was promised a return to Mecca. But he did not know what it would look like. And there was actually many rejections on the way. And I want all of us when we see these little things happening, even something that looks symbolic, to not demand or to say that you know what, if it's not exactly how we want it, then it's useless. The Prophet Muhammad Hassan was very optimistic. And Allah called it phenomenal.

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

Vina a manifest clear opening to who? To the human beings around the Prophet Isla and the sahaba. It wasn't clear to them,

00:55:09--> 00:55:25

but to Allah azza wa jal and to the Prophet Muhammad Salam, it was clear. And what I wanted to pull from this is that we have optimism in the plan of Allah azza wa jal that we know that he knows better. The ways that Aqsa and Philistine should be open and free than we know.

00:55:26--> 00:56:02

And that had we been in charge of opening it and we could kind of lay out the master plan. It would not be even close to as good as Allah azza wa jal is plan. And I just remind myself of that, what if you were honorable Hatha. And you were like, man, that's not enough. We're gonna sit here and say that's not enough. We want more, we want them to say they did genocide and this and this. Perhaps it's a fact. Perhaps it is a means in the path of opening Philistine for the Muslims. So we ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to be optimistic during these times to see all the good that happens to never be little, the little victories on this path, and that Allah azza wa jal allows us to see

00:56:02--> 00:56:05

the victory in this life just like Santa Monica

00:56:07--> 00:56:11

was like Mahatma if Zack Marquez everyone for attending tonight.

00:56:13--> 00:56:49

In the last time it was just a little bit of a taste of again, the importance of the Quran and how relevant it is not just to the situation because it's our situation at all times with the light and allow us to reflect on it and and Hamdulillah I mean we have the month of Quran not too far away llama but living out on Milan last pants out allow us to regional Milan and Palestine be freed. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to see nothing but but but higher. And goodness and victory then the nahi Tala in the months ahead and allow everything that we do to be a means of opening for our brothers and sisters a llama I mean, it was like well, I'll hold on to our dear Messiah that are

00:56:49--> 00:57:04

visiting to everyone that has participated with us tonight as I said next week when the night to Anna we will resume with how to do read all the Allahu Anhu Part Two here in sha Allah Tada Tuesday night. My request is to please let the Messiah

Say to them Welcome home, which is our motto here but and then and tell them that you want to see them back here over and over again with the nighttime medical off he comes upon a club,

00:57:31--> 00:57:38

a stockbroker to what he was talking about Academy and I'm Muhammad. While early he was so happy he was so now when he come on up until every cut
