00:00:05--> 00:00:44

So now I can when I come to LA he will go to counsel. I will ask him in a nutshell apology was not intended to mean whatever we want in our body mean when I give it to them once again a lot more suddenly Western democratic or because we can come in and Salalah Why are you a settler? On Ernie he was like me he was the lympho Seaman cathedra the brothers and sisters we want to welcome you back to four and 3430 and hamdulillah. Alongside chef from de la and myself tonight we have a very dear friend and special guests. Boston's finest I don't know if you like the term chef, so but the best that Boston has to offer 100 in LA, and New Jersey, Boston and New Jersey is fine. Oh, make sure you

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

gotta respect the jersey

00:00:46--> 00:01:28

jersey connection. We're very honored to have our dear beloved chicastic family with us tonight inshallah Tada. And it is the 25th night of Ramadan. So the last panel entirely except from us what a blessing night for us to reach. And of course, one of the odd nights and the last time. So I pray that a lot of zooids accept your Ada tonight and always in the last hour allow us to catch later than that wherever it is such a title we'll go ahead and we'll start and some Pamela in just 25 insert of the Shura, there is an expense or it starts with the ending of sort of full bleed out and then after that we go into sort of the shoot off. And there's a verse that connects very deeply to

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

the subject tonight

00:01:30--> 00:02:00

in the run on when we talk about the servants of the Most Merciful and tonight we'll be talking about a healthy fear and what it looks like to have people that fear of loss of habitat and actively ask Allah subhanaw taala to remove the punishment from them, despite the fact that they are people of plentiful good deeds, people who connect to a loss of data and people that are known for their nobility, they still call upon a loss of hundreds on ask Allah subhanaw taala or bonus love and

00:02:01--> 00:02:08

all are removed from us the the punishment of the Fire, verse seven of the surah

00:02:09--> 00:02:51

is a very particular verse where Allah subhana wa Taala ends off the ayah so Eliza just says what can I get okay 90 day Coco Allah now will be on the tune the Roman Parliament Hola, what two liter Yeoman generator, the fee for Equinox in general it was very fun to say last time it says and thus did we reveal this for an in Arabic to you that you may warn the people of Mecca and those that dwell around it and warn them of the Day of Gathering of Yama January, concerning which there is no doubt and Allah subhanaw taala says a group in Paradise and a group in a blazing fire. The wife of Allah bin Abdulaziz Joaquim Allah Tada. Her name was faulty most of the medic Allah have mercy on

00:02:51--> 00:03:36

her she said that there was one verse that when disease would read this verse, and I'm going to have the disease used to only pray tonight rhizobia mullet every night. But his two cars were spectacular in terms of their quality and the deep connection that he would have with the loss of Hannah Montana. In those two cars. She said that this verse, if he read this verse, it was you know, it was so impactful it was it caused him such grief and such fear that I would be afraid that he would die because of how much he would cry when he would read this verse. It was particularly so Helen, she use the example she said, you know, imagine a bird having water thrown on it. She said, I thought

00:03:36--> 00:04:18

the oma would wake up with no halifa. And I would wake up with no husband. And it was all because of the end of this verse 31 full agenda are frequent for say, a group in Paradise and a group in the blazing fire. And so he used to ask an O Allah in which of the two groups Am I in Subhana Allah so I would have found that Aziz, who is noted as being you know, one of our watch the dean though he is separated in terms of the history, or in terms of time period, from Russia, Dean from the righteous foot of that he is considered to be amongst them because of what he did the first or one of the first magenta bits of this oma reviver as of this moment. And he feared for himself some panela,

00:04:18--> 00:05:00

when he would read this verse that he was not so sure that he was from 51. To agenda, we asked the last contact to make us all amongst them alone. I mean, and so that's the first, the first thing that I just wanted us to think about as we're reading through the surah today. Now, one of the things that's interesting about just 25 is that just like just 24 is all about the angels. Or there's a lot about the angels and just 24 it's it's a theme that you find throughout the ages. And this just the theme is actually the core app. In fact, every single surah in this book, starts off with a verse about the poem. Okay, so we had a stretch of surahs in the beginning of the poem,

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

And around Gers eight nine where we started to see that and here every surah within this just starts off with a mention of the poor and so in the beginning of this surah Allah subhanaw taala says karateka you are at laico either levina and publika beloved Aziz and Hakeem Thus does Allah the mighty, most wise reveal to you even as he revealed to those messengers who preceded you, Allah subhanho wa Taala Aziz Hakim, the most praiseworthy, the most praiseworthy, the most wise.

00:05:31--> 00:06:14

Eliza just says in verse 51, so he starts to address certain objections that people have of the poor and while also mentioning certain virtues of the poor and so in verse 51, Allah subhana wa tada addresses the argument that you've been seeing play out, you know, particularly between just 21 and 23. This criticism of the prophets lie Selim, why don't the angels just come down and speak to us? Why don't we see a loss of habitat? Why doesn't God Himself speak to us? All of the objections that they're bringing, about the the Prophet slicin calling into question, the idea that he has been chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to be the messenger to mankind? Why you and how come you know,

00:06:14--> 00:06:54

you're not able to produce this, this, this and that, and so allies addresses the challenge, you know, that it is not befitting to any human being that Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you can leave a whole lot in LA here, only what are a few jobs that Allah subhanaw taala should speak to him except through revelation or from behind a veil, or that's a messenger being here being an angel sent to him that reveals to him by Allah Subhana antis permission, whatever he wills and Allah subhana wa tada is it and hekima lies with others all high and most wise, and then Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh, hey, not unique at all, Hammond Amina and thus we have sent from you we have revealed to you Oh

00:06:54--> 00:07:15

prophet of a lot of spirits by our commands. And so just like every prophet had an angel that came to them, and Eliza did reveal to them in the same way, Allah subhana wa Taala is revealing to you through a spirit by our command. And this is probably you know, one of the most beautiful

00:07:16--> 00:07:29

about the because it speaks to the Prophet slicin on receiving report and this is verse 50. To the end of the surah last contrast, does not contact every man Kitab or whatever you man, when I can Jana who Nora Natty Vina Michelle

00:07:30--> 00:07:30

indicated

00:07:33--> 00:08:15

that you did not know you knew neither what the book nor the faith was, you did not know that this was going to happen to you or messenger of a lot of the prophets lie some of them did not know that he would one day have this great message bestowed upon him and he would be raised to this rank it his slot was set up. He was looking he was in search and Allah subhana wa tada says, and we made that spirits alight by whereby we guide those of our servants, when we pleased the right way. So this light that Allah chose you or Mohammed soleimani was selected to be the carrier of we have made it such that that light will guide whom we pleased amongst our servants, and surely, you know

00:08:15--> 00:08:59

affirming to the Prophet slicin reassuring the prophets lie so that you are directing people to the right way. You are directing people to the right way Do not let the questioning of these people cause you to have any self doubt about who you are, you know, about who you are in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala and about the integrity of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the message that was bestowed upon him the next surah Allah subhana wa tada again, having when Kitab and will be in Jana, who for an hour be an Allah contacted on that Allah Subhana Allah swears by the book of Allah swears by the clear book kind of lost. So in the end of the previous surah a lot as

00:08:59--> 00:09:44

Nigel is reassuring the prophets lie Selim confirming once again who he is and the means by which Allah subhanaw taala guided him and by extension guides us that this Quran, Allah subhana wa tada is the author of this book. And so here a lot actually swears by the Quran and a lot of those swears by as the clear book, meaning there is no ambiguity in regards to this book, not in the message itself, nor in the integrity and the confirmation and the authority of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. Barely we have made it an Arabic port and once again, clear language that you may understand. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well in the Hopi Omen kitabi that Dana Nardi and Hakeem, indeed, it is

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

transcribed in the original book with us exalted and full of wisdom. Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us the real reason why these people were questioning the prophets why some of them it was not that they were questioning the prophets lie some of them because they are

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

You know, because they really doubted the poor app. Okay, so verse 31, Allah subhana wa tada says, we'll call you Lola Mozilla had them for an hour and aluminum polyurethane niobium. They say, why was this poor and not set down upon some great none from the two cities?

00:10:19--> 00:11:01

And so what they mean by that? Is that why you? So it wasn't about the message. It wasn't about the messenger. It was about us not being chosen to be from the messengers which speaks to their real intention when they mock the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. They said, Why did this not come upon people like will lead them in the leader or earthmoving lobby or the nobles of like arguably Mr. Rude the people that were the elites of Mecca and live so these are the same that are being referred to here why you Oh, it should have been one of us and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, whom you actually want to live with topic do they get to distribute the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala it is a

00:11:01--> 00:11:34

loss of hundreds I would distribute our livelihood amongst us in this world and Allah subhanaw taala who raises in rank as he chooses, and Allah subhana wa tada His mercy is up to him. It is he who decrees it as he sees fit. So how to horchata so it answers the clear objection, the real reason why they were objecting to the profits A lot of it was in his prophethood Finally, the next surah Allah subhanaw taala says once again having when Kitab and will being a loss of Hannah who swears by the clear book once again and Allah subhana wa tada says in

00:11:48--> 00:11:58

green indeed we weren't by it. He how you could have been an Hakeem and every matter is decreed precisely on that night of labor to others so so panela

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

To conclude, as I handed over, from sorts of decline to shahidullah

00:12:05--> 00:12:46

the fact that they were complaining that why was the poor and decreed which is the greatest blessing right the last 100 times decreed Why did a lot choose you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and rejecting the Quran because they were displeased with the decree of Allah. And then here Allah subhana wa tada says, The Quran was revealed on this blessed night they live other than last answer allow us to observe it. And that is the night in which all are decreed on an annual basis we pray that Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those that have only the best decreed for them. We pray that Allah subhana wa tada make us amongst those that are recipients of His mercy in this blessing

00:12:46--> 00:12:52

night and his forgiveness and his pleasure along the way. I mean, and inshallah tada with that, I'm going to pass them off to Shambo.

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

Mila Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah.

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

He was about

00:13:06--> 00:13:26

the the chapter and which I wish to speak about too shall on his 25th juice is chapter of Zoho chapter of Zoho. Zoho actually means ornaments and as some have mentioned, golden ornaments. And I'm actually going to cite the verse in which that word is mentioned. And it was in the verse that

00:13:27--> 00:13:36

it comes right after the verse that shamar alluded to that he mentioned, verse number 31, all the way to roughly

00:13:37--> 00:14:14

verse number 35. inshallah Tada. So, just as he said, You know, this was a statement of the parish, the Meccans, the people that disbelieved and the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, the people that disbelieve in a monotheistic practice and worshiping God by himself and recognizing his his greatness, will they recognize his greatness, but did they have the appropriate response to that knowledge? And that's what's mostly important here which makes the difference between him and you know, the Muslims and the and the people that did not believe at that time. And in general, a loss of kind of what Allah says after all, the National gene will call you Lola Lola Lucy to have a

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

look at an annual budget Amina Adia teeny alim and they said being the Quraysh, Lola and Lucy to handle Quran Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah understand the Quran, Allah, Allah Julian, and they said, What? You know, only if this Koran was revealed upon a man from either one of the two I forget to call him and he's to Korea. taneous as he mentioned, either Mecca or thought if being that it was

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

nobody in Malaya or Mr. Earley been around this route, or they allow

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

these two individuals nothing, that it was revealed upon these two individuals, because they had stature. They had respect. They had honor. They were they were diplomats and they were well known. And so panela it's interesting here because you know, Islam

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

always takes into consideration the poor and destitute. Islam always looks at humility, the actions of the heart before anything else, before any ornaments, or anything that is superficial or anything that is apparent under the umino nebulae be those that believe in the unseen. And that was isn't what we talked about in the first lesson. It's important to value the inner connection that one has with their maker. That's what is valued, what the relationship, their heart, what their heart carries, and what is exemplified through their actions is what Islam what Allah Subhana Allah values the most. So that may mean that you may not be well known amongst the people, but with a loss of

00:15:45--> 00:16:21

power with Allah, you are someone that is Beloved, you may not be mentioned amongst the people, you may not be popular and everything of that nature, but you are with Allah subhanho wa Taala when you are alone, Allah loves you. And that's what's so beautiful here. Because they are, ah, they saw the prophet SAW a light or something I'm having Mohammed saw the code. I mean, he is someone that's trustworthy, and he is honest. But when it came to him receiving the message of how to change our life, slow down, slow down, that's a little too much. So that's what's so beautiful here is that ilasik kind of gave him this magnificent message, because of his humility, and his honor, and a loss

00:16:21--> 00:16:37

of Allah chooses whom He wills. So Allah subhanho wa Taala does a refutation against that question that they had. And some scholars mentioned, as I mentioned that, you know, there's three refutations that he has here, first refutation or rebuttal.

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

Or

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

are they the ones that distribute so Ally's asking a rhetorical question?

00:16:48--> 00:17:14

Basically, if you have the right to ask that question, let me ask this question. Do they distribute rock, metal or beaker? Are they the ones that distribute the mercy of your Lord? We are the ones who have appointed amongst them the livelihood and the life of this world and have raised some amongst them above others and degrees. So the first rebuttal was, do they have the right to distribute the mercy? Right maternal beaker, Nana cosina kasana bainham.

00:17:15--> 00:17:56

We are the ones that distribute the mercy. So a loss of pan with Allah Subhana Allah, you will find that he will always turn it back to his authority. And he will always remind you of who he is, and his names and attributes and what they mean in the life of the human being. As soon as you question the authority of what God has chosen, he always brings it back to proper perspective. And that is something that's important for the Muslim when they want to see and remind themselves how to actualize Islam, we can say within their lives, but within your heart. How should your heart exemplify that connection with God? When you ask why this person, if Allah has chosen that person,

00:17:56--> 00:18:10

and you see the character and what they're calling to support? I remember when I was hearing about Islam, the first of my questions being from the West was okay, what is Muhammad one? Right? Okay, I believe in the oneness of God and all that, but this Muhammad, so I said, What is he walked for me.

00:18:11--> 00:18:48

And that was what was so intriguing to me is that he doesn't want anything from you, except for you to worship God by himself. That is why he was sent, which made me more inquisitive, and eventually to become Muslim. So here, we see that I lost one of the first questions that we are the ones do they are they the ones that have the authority to distribute the mercy? And I want you to notice he says, not enough for some that being whom he can hire to do and yet we are the ones here that distribute the maisha to whom that their livelihood in this life, or to find out about the home folk about them yet, and we have raised some of them above others in degrees. That's the second rebuttal.

00:18:48--> 00:19:24

So the first thing is that a rhetorical question that do they think they have the right to distribute this mercy amongst one another, we are the ones that give some people virtues over others. We are the ones that have that clear authority. And then a loss of power with Allah continues on to say in verse number 32, or metodika, hiatal min, manage our own, and this is beautiful here, it's important for you to remember, for those of you that may be trying to pack practice your faith and try to try to exemplify your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and your practice of your faith. And you may have some people you may have some friends that may make fun of

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

you or belittle you because you're trying to be someone that prays five times a day. I remember there's a friend of mine, he may be watching you remember, He always talks about you know, one time they were they were watching the I think it was a football game or the Super Bowl and he said, You know, I gotta get up and pray man and his friends like what? You're gonna go pray, we're watching the game. And they always made fun of him because he left the game to go and pray. Don't ever feel that you are less of a person or be little when you're doing something that you know is right. Do not let the ones that are of creation, make you feel that you are doing something wrong when you're

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

turning towards

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

creator, or you're doing an action that shows gratitude to your Creator. And that's what's so beautiful about these verses because Allah is telling you let your mind and your heart transcend the dunya. And that's what he goes on to say here, and the next verse, at the end of this verse, the mercy of Allah is greater than what they gathered clay Edelman may in Maryland, you've memorized the Quran, and people may look down upon you because you don't have a degree, had the hadal magazine my own. Do not ever belittle the fact that you are someone that's doing an action that is beloved to Allah and people that may have something more of you more than you in this dunya

00:20:36--> 00:21:02

they look down upon you because you don't have it but you have you have something that is much greater the implementation of your love of God and your devotion to him initially from your heart. That's why it says heighten it's better than what these people gather. And then a loss of patent what dialysis will Ola and your coonan so much and why just imagine that you may you may only be using superformance books in one room, there are lots of panels continues on to say

00:21:03--> 00:21:43

and if there were not of a people that would that would become one community of people that just believed we would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful for their houses, ceilings and stairways of silver upon which to mount. Okay. And then he says and further houses with the blue team have a wealth of weapon and further houses, doors and couches will suit on Las Vegas ticket on couches, or we could say beds yet take it on and yet to get one is like to lean it's like it's so lavish. you're leaning, you're chilling, you just you just lean in there. Right? And then the last one was a roofer. And that's the beginning of verse number 35. Zuko prefers the golden ornaments

00:21:43--> 00:22:24

here. So he's saying, if we will, we would make everyone on this earth people that said, we don't believe in God. We don't believe that there is someone that deserves to be worshipped by himself. He could have easily made that if he would have made that he would have blessed all of them. With stairways, with ceilings all made of silver. Can you imagine? Literally they're getting their shine on everything is shining. And that's why some scholars say silver because it is shiny, and it is attracted to the eye. It mesmerizes you then the last panel dices was rougher. And he says we're in kulu Delica limited her material here to dunya. Well, you know to what asciidoctor ended up being a

00:22:24--> 00:23:05

little more tucked in and he ends here in Zoho, he's saying even with that we will give them golden ornaments within the cooler that again all of that what you just heard, all of that which you naturally desire is Metatron is it doing it it is an enjoyment of this life. And then he makes the comparison when not to and the accuracy and with your Lord is greater for the tequila for the month tucking that is much greater for them. So realize brothers and sisters, the name of this chapter is just reminding you Subhanallah Do not be mesmerized by the dunya and don't let that distract you from what is more important and then conclude. You know once upon a law there was a time of the

00:23:05--> 00:23:44

prophet SAW a sentiment when many of us may know the Hadith of the Prophet son was lying on a mat and when he stood up from the mat, he had the thought he had the elements or signs of the mat on his side. And even mushroom came and said yet also lie low at 200 laka. We said they said O Messenger of Allah flew to take for you a pillow or something of this nature. He said Molly will it dunya he said what is for me in this life verily I am a comparison to this life. cara cara occupant is developed after Shalom Shalom synthomer karma what Soraka I'm like a writer that is in this life, that takes the shade of a tree gets his shade of a tree gets up and then proceeds on remember that this dunya

00:23:44--> 00:24:02

literally comes from that which is low we should not cherish it to the degree to where it compromises our character by belittling others that show and exemplify their love of Allah Subhana Allah May Allah make us of those that value the next life more than we value this life and use this life as a means to come closer to the owner of the next life just come along.

00:24:04--> 00:24:05

Sure enough

00:24:08--> 00:24:25

now 100 in LA salatu salam ala rasulillah on early also have human wander along with Sally Watson Sallim wa barik ala Sayyidina, Muhammad Ali and often enough in manga in Allah and Naomi Deen. It's a pleasure to be with all of you this evening. And shall I'll try to keep my remarks slightly shorter.

00:24:26--> 00:24:34

What's inspiring me this evening when it comes to the 25th of June is really a statement by Abdullah Ms. Who'd won

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

in reference to the how I mean these verses these chapters that we're in right now in the 25th jaws of the portal that start in really the 24th and end in the 26th. There are seven sewer they're called aloha meme or the Halloween the family of high memes, seven chapters that have the same code at the top which is Hamming and encompass pretty much all the same meanings in various ways.

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

And he says something that was very beautiful that touched me and it really struck me in a way that hopefully inshallah will be of use to everyone. He says he though apostrophe le Hamming. If you find yourself walking through the Koran, and you stumble upon the family of Hamming fatwa kata Fie robot, then certainly you have found yourself in gardens, beautiful, endless gardens, blissful gardens at the unnatural fee when I myself find all of my pleasure, my joy, my relaxation, my relief in these gardens. You know, when we hear things like this very often, you know, we kind of just make a note of it. Okay, I'm below him and Mr. Wood said with regards to the seven sort of the high mean that

00:25:45--> 00:26:23

it's like going through their gardens. Okay, next. But you know, what stopped what part what made me pause here was, you know, for someone like Abdullah, he blew my spirit to say that is actually pretty profound. Because who is Abdullah he been a minister when he was Minister of Japan and oh, and he and he's one of the first who have entered into Islam. He is Sahaba Legion attain. He's one of those who made the two plans to have a Sha two RB SR into Medina. He was sahiwal gnarly Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would carry the slippers of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promise I said learn one time that he was climbing a tree and the companions kind of

00:26:23--> 00:27:06

snickered at the fact that he had thin legs. And they said, What do you love? He said, What do you guys laughing at? So we're laughing at the fact that, you know, Abdullah Massoud has these thin legs he says, Don't laugh For verily his legs are off calm, and they are weightier than the the mount mountain of our hood. And perhaps one of the greatest badges of honor of our beloved Massoud is that he was a one woman Zahara Becky tabula, he FEMA, he was the first to come out openly and recite the Quran in Mecca. And that was a very brave, very spirited act. This is someone who loved the prophet who loved this path. And he came out and certainly he was received with a pretty bad bruising.

00:27:08--> 00:27:25

So one of the features of the seven suit is that the consensus of scholarship is that all seven of the Hello meme are revealed in Mecca, in terms of the entirety of the suit, and they were revealed sequentially, right, from refer to a half.

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

And, and it's perhaps the case will Lahu Ireland that this was revealed in the latter part of the latter part of the meccan period, roughly two three years before the digital.

00:27:38--> 00:28:17

So if you put yourself in Satan, I believe in Mr. Wood shoes. He is someone who is witnessing all of this trauma, and this pain, this difficulty the attacks on this community in an open air prison realistically, right? He's going through at all he's been through the ups and the downs, he's watching as the mushrikeen are doing what they're doing. He's trying to, you know, negotiate this whole reality of this new way of life of the Prophet Mohammed sly send them has introduced and then the seven chapters of the Quran come down. And he describes them as gardens. And, and that really struck me so I started to read the sewer,

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

as if I'm walking through a garden,

00:28:21--> 00:28:59

you know, here in Boston, nearby where I live, we have something called the Arnold Arboretum. It's 260 acres of a natural reserve, and it's managed by Harvard. And they say that they've brought, you know, trees from all across the world, so many different species. And it's truly an amazing thing. You go into one alleyway, one ravine, one space, one place, one pathway, you see trees that are really remarkable, intertwined, different types of bark, different types of, you know, leaves, etc. It's really a beautiful thing and everywhere you go, you're looking at trees, but you're looking at different things, different sense, different sites, different scenes, and they all inspire you

00:28:59--> 00:29:40

profoundly so you can imagine so you do not have to let him miss out walking through the house. I mean, as he's reading about Allah subhanho wa Taala talking about securing him at night in our family and that sort of facilitate that certainly we are going to show them our signs in the horizons What's he enforcing him and in themselves hat diet obeying Allah home and now what happens until this is truly proven to them that this is the truth that this is clearly clarified. This is called an well being I should homeschool spoke about this is a clear call to action and this is a clarifying call on when I'm actually build a bigger Nanakuli Shay in Shaheed is it not sufficient

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

for your Lord that Allah subhanho wa Taala witnesses all things. So what does that do to someone like I below him and Mr. Wood, what kind of inspiration what kind of you know if he's in an open air prison and Allah is now talking about His signs and manifesting His signs, Allah subhana wa tada is giving so you do not allow him access

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

into the nations that have passed, giving them the story, the historical insight of what happened to add in the mood. Being able to read these stories, analyze what happened to them, why what happened to them? That's a beautiful garden to live in right there. Then juxtapose with the stories of Moosa and Isa and Ibrahim and it's my you know the you know, my last Countdown to other humans Salama, Jemaine and to be living in their world, and to realize as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that this is not something new sha Allah comida Dyneema wasabi, he knew Han that this Sharia this new way that has come, you know this, this what has come upon Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is what we

00:30:39--> 00:31:22

what we advise new with, and then this MLM Wall Mount Sinai be here below him. I'm also an ISA and a PMO. Dean, and this is what we told Ibrahim was an ISA establish this religion. And so what does that do to his heart and his spirit? This is him knowing that he is a part of a transgenerational, divine, divinely oriented, revelatory reality, that is now going to shift and change their entire existence. And they and he is a part of this because one of the things that the manifest he didn't say about the how I mean, is that this is a form of heat. It's a preparatory succession of chapters to prepare the hearts and the souls of the companions to say, You are now the carriers of this

00:31:22--> 00:32:03

message. Look at Moosa and Ben, we're slightly to look at he said, I'm looking at that story. Look at that reality. Now you are the carriers of this message. So prepare yourself, because after the how, I mean, it's sort of Mohammed sort of Mohammed, when, when you get into with tshabalala. And chef Alma is a very intense surah. And then you have after that, and in fact, the opening. So this is a preparatory phase, to soften the hearts to theologically orient, to spiritually nourish, to give historical insights to also give assessments of the pathways and the different ways of being the end result of those who believe in the end result of those who this belief. So they truly are

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

gardens, brothers and sisters, you know, I'll close with this and Sharla

00:32:09--> 00:32:43

I want us to all deeply appreciate the fact that Allah subhanaw taala when it comes to our revelation, when it comes to this beautiful Deen that Allah talks to us in the language of signs. Signs are very beautiful. signs in the Islamic tradition are everything by the way, when Allah commanded the prophesy send them to read. It was a tone as you know, Mozart, he says, Nikita Bella Hillman bore Akira to Nikita Bella Hema store is to observe and read and analyze the scene signs that are seen and analyzed and read the signs that are revealed.

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

If you're on a highway, and your gas light turns on, you have to fill up gas now.

00:32:51--> 00:33:07

What do you start to look for, you start to look for that little I mean, at least this is very contextualized to American roadway. So I don't know about the international community. But at least in the US, you start to look for that little blue thing. You know, that little blue blob that has a squiggly line of a gas tank.

00:33:09--> 00:33:21

And when you see it, and it says gas, half mile or a quarter mile, what happens to your heart You're looking for the sign. You see the sign immediately induces a sense of relief,

00:33:23--> 00:33:45

a sense of clarity, a sense of ease, and a sense of certainty, meaning that okay, in a half mile, I'm going to be saved. I'm going to fill the tank, I'm going to get to put my two kids in the bathroom. We've been trying to use the bathroom, I don't want them to spoil themselves. We're gonna get some snacks. It creates an emotional and psychological and spiritual disposition that is very profound.

00:33:46--> 00:34:18

The signs that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us and the ones that he's always talking about, to us to observe, should it precisely induce that within us? You know, why is it that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that one night when Bilal came and awakened him for to take permission to make a van to fetch and he saw the promise I sent him crying profusely. He said, yeah, this will allow up what makes you cry this way. He said Kay fella up cue up una de la la la jolla in a few 100%. What do you want out of the walk the laughing lady on the heart?

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

in

00:34:21--> 00:34:38

the very early in the creation, how am I not to cry when tonight was revealed upon me? This beautiful verse, this beautiful sign that barely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and alternation of the night and day are Signs for the people who have their innermost hearts.

00:34:39--> 00:35:00

So brothers and sisters, I want all of us to learn to read the signs exactly like you're going through a garden. Be mesmerized by them, internalize them, find clarity within them, find relief in them, just like ambala he went through did forget that content.

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

That you find a lead, get that perspective that you finally get that sense of certainty that you finally need. But see, there's one thing here about signs that we have to be very careful about. If I'm on the highway,

00:35:13--> 00:35:37

and I don't know what to look for which sign, my car is going to break down. And the COP is going to come to me and say, What happened? Didn't you see the sign? Like what sign? Where was the sign what you're talking about that blue blob thing? I don't know what that is. So we have to use our minds. We have to use our hearts we have to awaken our faculties we have to observe. So we have to be proactive, we have to do another. We have to observe intently.

00:35:38--> 00:36:22

And we have to be careful not to render our faculties null and void because Allah says and I'll close with this in sha Allah in Surah jatha fri eight, Amanita Ilaha who How have you not seen those who take as their high Lord, their desires, what Obama who lost and alone misguided them and led them astray, either even in the face of knowledge, they had the knowledge. It was right there, the signs were right there crying at them, you know, come here, come here, come here and I just went that way. We'll help them on a summary. We'll call it b e and Allah subhanaw taala seals their ears and their hearts. Well, Giada Allah sorry, here the shower, and there's this covering over their

00:36:22--> 00:36:22

eyes.

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

And that brothers and sisters, is what we have to be very careful about. Allah has blessed us with signs. But he's also blessed us with the spiritual apparatus to observe the signs. If we become too self indulgent, too self absorbed, that everything is about me, me, me, my wants, my feelings, my desires, my fears, my anxieties Me, me, me. The signs are right. They're calling out to me for to exit. But I just don't see it.

00:36:56--> 00:37:39

So brothers and sisters in Charlottetown as we're reading these quotes that are caught on and we're reading these at, let's open up our hearts and our minds to these signs. Let's find the certainty in the signs. You know, what is known as you know, the bottle bottle eliakim the coolness of certainty. The dual of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alone Maxim lemon has sciatica, not a hoodoo vein and our baina ma sciatic woman thought article metabolic wannabe genetic wamena Yaki Nima To hell with Elena. We have masala dunia, Yola grant a certainty that will make it easy for us the realities of this dunya the secret of that certainty, and that relief, and that clarity, will law he

00:37:39--> 00:37:44

are in the signs of a law and the signs of a law are everywhere. What's equally shy

00:37:45--> 00:38:10

to do other and Nahuatl and everything there is a sign that indicates a law is one may Allah, Allah help us to see the signs, to love the signs to find the beauty in the signs to find the relief in the signs. May Allah help us to be a people have the signs the evening that he will finally just lock in. Or Sunday lahoma and sad now Mohammed washio, Donna, and then hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Zach Lowe,

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

Chef Gaston for the beautiful reflections. We appreciate you joining us tonight. We appreciate you being plugged into law.

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

I was completely unintended.

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

That's what they call a Freudian slip. It came from within me something like that. We'll take those slips any day.

00:38:37--> 00:38:46

Accept all of us in His mercy and allow us to see the signs and to apply. The best wages are from Ohio. See you all tonight, Charles and I want to come

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

back okay.
