hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala see the more serene while he was mine,

00:00:12--> 00:00:42

my dear sir heroes and sisters Rahmani Raheem Mahi wabarakatuh. A couple of days ago we spoken about an important characteristics of a believer and that is the aspect of a sub. being patient. We said Ramadan is the month of patience, but the believers affairs the believer status does not become balanced unless he is practicing the two scales on one scale is the sub, the patience and the other scale is that related to

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

to sugar, which is the gratitude that a person shows towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and to his creation, as we shall mentioned, insha Allah.

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

First of all,

00:01:01--> 00:01:59

it's important to understand that being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala is part of the reality that the human should be existing in. You know, the part of the existence of the Muslim of the human, in fact, is that they should be showing gratitude to our last paradigm. And this is why Allah created the human created him so that he would acknowledge Allah Subhana Allah know Allah, and acknowledge the gratitude and the virtue of a loss of Hannah what Allah the reality, however, is that not many people understand this reality, this thing and they don't practice it. And that's why in many verses in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I Leland Quran, and he said, waka li la

00:01:59--> 00:02:46

mina, Eva da Shaku little do you show gratitude, and the other verse, and few of my slaves of few amongst my slaves are those who show gratitude. So they are ungrateful and in fact, when we compare this word sugar, what is the direct opposite to sugar? Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the Quran in her Dana who Sabine we have shown him either human we have shown him the way the the way of the direction if you like we have guided him to the correct way. For him Masha Kiran, we're in Makkah fora is either going to be a shocker is either going to be grateful, or he's going to be ungrateful. So there's a word for our gratitude and gratitude

00:02:48--> 00:02:56

is q4. And that's because q4 in its linguistic sense, is about covering things up. So when Allah subhanaw taala is showing you

00:02:57--> 00:03:36

gratitude and he's giving you things and he's giving you a name and he's giving you blessings and you are not repaying back Allah by that gratitude, then you are being this grateful, ungrateful. You are showing your, the the side of you which is not appreciative, and that's why it's called cocoa. Now, some things to note about sugar. Allah subhanho wa Taala has praised his slaves for being shackling for those who have been

00:03:39--> 00:03:53

grateful to him. We read many times in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah praised nor Hollis Allah glorietta man hamdulillah man or you know who can abdun Chakra law says the

00:03:54--> 00:04:20

offspring Do we have carried or which we have connected through la ceram he was abdun shockula he was a grateful slave. And our last pantile also talks about Brahim and a tsunami says Shakira and homie he was grateful to his blessings IE to the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala and many other verses. Secondly,

00:04:21--> 00:04:29

Allah ordered us to be amongst those who are grateful. He said, What couldn't mash mina shaqiri and the amongst those who are grateful.

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

Thirdly, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the reality of sugar and gratitude is something that will come back to you if you are grateful. You are the one who's going to benefit and that's why he said what may your score for in Nam is good enough. See, whoever is grateful, then he is grateful for himself and this is the nature of actions is the nature of reality and of the day. If you fast Ramadan or you don't farsan if you pray or you don't pray, if you are

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Follow up on grief with your patient on an operation Who is the one that's going to benefit who's gonna one who's gonna be loss? You're not gonna you're not gonna affect a loss of panatela anyway, you're not going to harm a lion anyway. You're not going to harm any other human. If you don't fast. You don't know how many other humans if you don't, if you're not grateful to Allah, you're not going to be harming anybody who has. It's yourself. And that's why in accent, accent only unfussy come if you do good you are doing good for yourself. When a certain fella and if you do bad, then it's for yourself. It's all gonna pour back to yourself. So even gratitude, if you're grateful to Allah, it's

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

for yourself. Fourthly,

00:05:37--> 00:06:00

Allah Subhana, Allah made a promise, and he made an oath and he emphasized this will ensure cartoon lesson and if by truly and truly and show, surely if you are grateful, if you are show gratitude, then I will increase you, I will surely increasing. So Allah Subhana Allah he linked the gratitude to,

00:06:01--> 00:06:49

to getting an increase from him. subhanho wa Taala. And this obviously includes all those things as well. Now last panatela, linked the gratitude to him self with being grateful to one's parents. And this was the advice that Allah subhanho wa Taala said when he said what was seen in Santa bydd we gave advice. We advise the human with regards to his parents, and his quarterly Wiley Wiley they can be grateful to me and to your parents. So Allah Subhana Allah emphasized those two together to extend the Ibis, Ravi Allahu anhu. He said, LA to stellata to LA to caballo Illa be Salah, there are three things that will not be accepted except with three with with other three things. And amongst

00:06:49--> 00:07:01

those things you mentioned, my Chicago de la while I'm Escuela de vida de la Yoko Bella, if you are grateful to Allah, but no grateful to your parents, then it's not going to be acceptable from you.

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

Number five, Allah subhanho wa Taala made the whole concept of sugar

00:07:13--> 00:07:55

as a part of the realization of where you are in this in this life. Because if you think about it, sugar is a promote it's, it's it's proof profession, of your reality of a status in this life, which is that Allah Subhana, Allah has created you, and he has given you and he has benefited you. And he has done all of this to you. What is your response? What is your response in terms of your luck, and that's why a lot of pantalla wants you to acknowledge the gratitude and the name of Allah Smackdown. And in a nice saying

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

of the odorous and

00:07:59--> 00:08:07

he said, My Lord, if I were grateful to you, when I'm grateful to you,

00:08:08--> 00:08:38

there my gratitude to you and he shoukry leca, near metal towards you, even when I'm grateful to you, that in itself is an AML, which I have to also therefore, be thankful for. So when will I end? When will this end? When will the shocker really end because if I were not even my gratitude is anathema because remember, it's a lost pantile who blesses you amongst those. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said to download,

00:08:39--> 00:08:53

and Shackleton now you have really been grateful to because that is the realization of who you are in this world, which is that you have to your whole essence. Your very nature has to be grateful to our loss of Hannah.

00:08:55--> 00:09:40

And no doubt the most grateful of all people was our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was someone who knew Allah, he was someone who feared the law. He was someone who was pious, he was someone who was conscious of the last panel. And his feeling of Allah, his gratitude towards Allah made him someone who increased is a bother. And the famous Hadith used to pray in the night I showed over your life. And I said the process I'm used to pray in the night to the extent that his feet would swell up, and they would crack from you know, extensive standing. So she said to him almost July you are doing all of this and yet Allah has forgiven all your sins, what has gone and

00:09:40--> 00:09:53

what is to come. Yeah, you have no sense you are free of sin. So he said flr akuna abdun Chakra Should I not be a grateful slave? Should I no show the great gratitude to our last panel.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

So that is part of the existence of the human to realize

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

This And lastly,

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

sugar in itself, as we said, it's

00:10:08--> 00:10:48

from a loss of heart. And it's a blessing from Allah and it's for the blessing from Allah. Where are you going to get that blessing? You have to search it and you have to try to get it from Allah. And how are you going to do that you can ask a loss and that's why that was the drought of a man or a salon who taught us in the Quran that was the Doha that a lot towards as well as towards the end so at the core of that is that the Prophet seisen indoors? In fact, one of the most prominent or that the prophets I send them tall it was the drought when he he took my eyes the process on was riding on a donkey. And then he was working so fast I send them what wire they let him set sit behind him

00:10:48--> 00:10:53

so he sat behind the processor lamb on the donkey, and then the Prophet so I said, I'm so dry.

00:10:54--> 00:11:13

And he said last week as well. Ah, I'm at your service. Tell me almost July. He said in the white book. I love you. Oh my Latta and the hula Dora Creme de Sala aloha mine Neolithic Rica, wushu cricket was new
