00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Can you hear me?

00:00:14--> 00:00:15

One of the Sahaba

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

His name is Hilburn.

00:00:19--> 00:00:23

lavonne came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

and his face looked pale.

00:00:29--> 00:00:32

And his body looked very weak.

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

And he was crying.

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

And the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam asked him

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

What's wrong with you so bad?

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

Why is your face pale?

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

Why is your body weak?

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

Are you sick? He said, no prophet of Allah.

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

But I was thinking to myself,

00:00:58--> 00:01:03

every time I miss you, I come here, and I can see.

00:01:04--> 00:01:08

But my main concern is I was thinking about after I die,

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

and he will die,

00:01:11--> 00:01:17

you will make it to the highest position in gender. And I'm not sure whether I will make it to gender or not.

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

So

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

I was so concerned that I will not be able to see you.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

Allahu Akbar. This is how much they love the profits, a lot of audios.

00:01:34--> 00:01:46

And his main concern is how much he misses the processor lamb in the dunya. He said, when I miss you, I come and see you in the masjid. But my concern is in the era,

00:01:47--> 00:01:56

you will make it too hard for those. And I'm not sure whether I will make it to gender or not. Even if I make it to gender, I will be in a lower rank. I will not be with you.

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

The good news came from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

He said,

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

Allah Morrow, Mohammed.

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

He said you will be with those whom you love fell by.

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

So So Ben was so happy.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

who misses the process? And I'm here.

00:02:21--> 00:02:21

One hand,

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

two hands only.

00:02:28--> 00:02:39

Allah I would give up everything that I have in dystonia to hear this from the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. So, if you truly love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:43--> 00:02:46

I'm sure that you should be concerned like filburn

00:02:47--> 00:02:54

you want to be with him? And this is why Anasazi, a loved one who narrated this beautiful Hadith al Bukhari.

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

He said,

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

One time we were sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:02--> 00:03:07

And he was talking with us, and a bitumen cane.

00:03:08--> 00:03:13

And he kept asking the salon what he's talking, he said, matassa

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

what is the our winning the day of judgment? And the person who's talking and it's not appropriate to interrupt somebody while he's talking?

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

So the man kept asking the question three times, and the process lm in the third time, he looked at him and he said,

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

What have you prepared for that hour?

00:03:35--> 00:03:53

As if the processor Lem is telling him? This is not the right question, because it's only a law? Who knows? What is the hour? I don't know. As Allah subhanaw taala commanded or prophesy Salim. When the people of Christ asked him many times, he said to the processor lamb pull in

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

law, why in

00:04:01--> 00:04:13

Ruby, oh, Mohammed, say to them, the knowledge of the day is only with Allah. And I'm no, I'm nothing but a clear warning to you.

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

So as if the person is correcting him, this is the right question. What have you prepared for that hour? And the man said,

00:04:24--> 00:04:34

My other Tula kathira salatu wa salam have not prepared lots of extra, you know, voluntary acts of worship, like salah and Seong.

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

When a kidney or HIPAA law, our soul,

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

but I love Allah and His messenger.

00:04:43--> 00:04:48

Again, the professor Selim said, Allah Morocco, Mohammed happy Omen care.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

So the processor responded by saying, you know, the one will be with home with those whom we love on the Day of Judgment. So a lot while epsilon, you don't what Anna says.

00:05:01--> 00:05:20

He said for LA he maphorisa bad al Islam, ABC mithila farheena, Bihar Hadees we have never been happy with anything after embracing the religion of Islam, more than being happy with hearing this from the processor. And they asked us why.

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

And he gave a beautiful explanation.

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

Do you want to note

00:05:28--> 00:05:28

now

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

or at the end of the speech?

00:05:33--> 00:05:47

At the end of this speech, that's my style. You have to wait for something. Okay, let's go into the topic. So how many of you claim and I'm sorry to say this, let me repeat that again. How many of you claim that they love the processor?

00:05:50--> 00:06:03

Okay, ready for the challenge inshallah. ready for the challenge? Okay, I want one of my beloved young kids, somebody who should be my age and younger, 14 and younger Okay.

00:06:06--> 00:06:12

Well, let's raise the bar like 16 and younger inshallah. Okay, I want you to challenge me and raise your hand

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

one of those who are 16 and younger and so on.

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

Just one challenge.

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

Come on, Mashallah. What's your number?

00:06:25--> 00:06:33

The slim. So we'll give the slim three candy for taking the initiative and being the first challenger.

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

Okay, now to sleep. Can you tell me the full name of the prophecies elements?

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

At least I'm going to ask for three only okay. Make it easy.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

One more.

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

His grandfather

00:06:59--> 00:07:18

Abdulmutallab. Mashallah. So Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah bin Abdul muttalib. Okay. How many of us if I were to ask them about the tribe of the professor lamb? And I'm going to go extra? Okay, the names of his wives

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

and

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

his children?

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

Do we all know them?

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

You know what? If you love someone, you're eager to know everything about them.

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

So Love is not a claim.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

Love has to be shown in action.

00:07:41--> 00:07:45

Okay, how many of us love Allah subhanaw taala.

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

To hands Mashallah, at this time.

00:07:50--> 00:08:03

Again, same question. How much do we know about Allah subhanaw taala His names, his attributes, more importantly, his words,

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

the Koran, and this is why we are here tonight to share some lessons from one surah

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

but let me share with you something.

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:19--> 00:08:38

shared something with us and that was more than 14 centuries ago. And it's recorded in the Koran. Few opened the most half. So number 25, sort of from home. And number 30. There is a complaint there. There is a complaint.

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

Allah subhana wa Taala says, We're gonna

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

be in

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

an AMA

00:08:55--> 00:09:03

and the messengers have sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah, my people have deserted the Quran.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

My people have deserted the Quran.

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

The question is,

00:09:10--> 00:09:25

have we deserted the Quran? Are we all the same degree when it comes to this earth in the Quran? Every time Rahim Allah said, there are five degrees of deserts in the Quran, the least of which deserting the reading,

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

reading the Quran.

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

And my second question is, why would we read the Koran in order to

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

understand it?

00:09:39--> 00:09:45

Why because the Quran should be our way of life to be our constitution by

00:09:46--> 00:09:50

third, once we understand the Koran, we should do what?

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

act upon the Quran

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

and then once we feel the sweetness of the Quran, you are not selfish. You want to share

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

That would others which is called that our, you invite others to slam.

00:10:06--> 00:10:10

Right. And the fifth one is has to do with

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

Allah subhanaw taala said

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

one was luminol for animals he she fell on water.

00:10:20--> 00:10:28

Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, you know of the Quran that which is Shiva which is cured and Rama and mercy

00:10:32--> 00:10:41

and tonight inshallah we can reflect, but I just wanted to send you this message and I don't want to be negative from the beginning, but I just want to be

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

honest with you.

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

As a reminder, I want to inshallah, when you go home tonight to ask yourself,

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

Where am I from the Quran

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

was what's my relationship with the Quran?

00:11:00--> 00:11:13

And I'm going to give you this analogy before I start inshallah talking about the lessons from SWAT uses. Because I spent five years of my life was so abusive, in my PhD. So I'm going to ask you this question.

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

Anybody who belongs to the older generation, like, you know, somebody who's like, 72? Like me? No.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

Okay.

00:11:24--> 00:11:35

You know, at a time when there was no email, there was no internet. And some people are shaking their heads now I can tell they're my age now. Okay. At that time,

00:11:36--> 00:11:41

the correspondence was through the mail only, and we used to write letters.

00:11:43--> 00:11:43

Right?

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

Imagine during the engagement prayed, which comes before the engagement free, right?

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

During the engagement period, when your fiance sends you a letter, you know, how we used to deal with those letters.

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

You know, you keep the envelope,

00:12:02--> 00:12:10

and you put the letter inside. And wherever you travel, you have the envelope, put the letter with you. And he put it under the pillow.

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

And at some point of time, we need some inspiration. You pull the letter,

00:12:20--> 00:12:25

you open the envelope, and you get the letter out. And you start reading

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

as it as if it is revelation.

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

Stop at every word, and you reflect.

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

And imagine your fiance while she was writing the letter.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

See, some people are smiling. They agree with me, right?

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

And you start like a deep sigh after every paragraph, right?

00:12:50--> 00:12:57

And then you get charged emotionally and then you put the letter against the law now, I had an emotional meal.

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

Am I right? All right.

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

Right.

00:13:05--> 00:13:18

And Subhanallah once you start missing your fancy, what do you do? You go back and get the letters only one letter, you know the same words, they never changed. But somehow every time you read them, they give you a new inspiration.

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

And you stop with the words and you repeat them.

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

Okay, let's leave this scene and see how we read the Quran today.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

You open the most half Alif lam indelicato?

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

Done.

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

I finished my gist.

00:13:41--> 00:13:49

And then he stopped somebody and say, Okay, how many times have you read through the rough man? millions of times at hamdulillah?

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

Can I ask you about the meaning of one word? No Charla

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

Why? Because he knows that I'm going to embarrass him. Right?

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

Allah subhanaw taala said, Moodle.

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

In Description of two gardens in general. Allah said mood harmattan. So I said like, what's the meaning of Mata Mata? He said, Is this Arabic?

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

I said yes. Well, it's not Chinese. For Malay, it is Arabic.

00:14:24--> 00:14:38

And he said, Oh, I never stopped to ask myself this question. I said brothers and sisters will lie. We will never appreciate the words of Allah. We will never feel the sweetness of the Quran unless we understand the meaning.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

Imagine now if I start speaking

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

Russian Does anybody know Russian here?

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

have underlined so I can do it?

00:14:49--> 00:14:55

What would happen? Would you be able to sit here for five minutes, and I'm speaking a language that you don't understand?

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

No, you'll be bored.

00:15:01--> 00:15:11

Nobody here I'm coming again. I'm gonna say I'm never coming. I will never come to listen to this person because he speaks a different language. What is the Quran to us today?

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

Isn't it the same

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

so as far as

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

he liked it the Egyptian democracy.

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

So, what I'm trying to say here is we're lucky we're lucky, we're lucky if we really need our hearts

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

to be moved.

00:15:36--> 00:15:46

And if we really want our hearts to be revived, it's only one way by starting to connect with the words of Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:47--> 00:15:54

and I'm going to share with you in sha Allah a few lessons from Salt use of and then we're going to open the floor after that for q&a inshallah.

00:15:57--> 00:16:00

We need to reconnect with the book of Allah.

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

Listen to this I add before it starts reducing inshallah you may take them home and think about them.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

When we read the Quran,

00:16:12--> 00:16:19

the Quran should move our hearts, Allah He it's the only book that brings tears to my eyes.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala said towards the end of throttle hacer

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

la Yes, there we

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

are us

00:16:36--> 00:16:46

the people who will make it to confer and the people who make it to gender they're not the same. They cannot be treated the same. They can never be equal. Us

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

Izu on the people who will end up in general May Allah make us all amongst them say I mean

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

these are the successful these are the winners. And listen to the next day I lost battle I said. Now

00:17:14--> 00:17:26

if we were if we were to sit down to repeat this Quran on a mountain brothers and sisters I want you to imagine a mountain now. The mountain is made of what? rocks

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

stones

00:17:41--> 00:18:19

you will see this mountain harsh on very humble moto sogdian crumpling Can you imagine the stones and the rocks crumbling, cracking down from what man has Shatila from the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala what happened to the hearts of the human beings? Well, I would only watch a movie, which is drama. It brings tears to our eyes. But when we listen to the Koran, it can hardly move us into tears. Am I right or right? We need to go back. We need to go back and reconnect with the words of Allah.

00:18:38--> 00:18:46

Don't they reflect on the words of the Quran? Or are their hearts sealed and blocked?

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

Brothers and Sisters the prophets of Salaam said sister lalala Salah

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

one more time.

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

He said every time one of us

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

commits a sin. A black drop falls on his heart or her heart. And when the person continues sinning, their heart is covered with a complete black layer. And that makes a barrier between our hearts and Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

How many times

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

have you prayed and someone asks you

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

how do you feel after salah

00:19:31--> 00:19:35

and some people say perfectly the same like before salon.

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

So what is the meaning of Salah then it doesn't affect you at all.

00:19:43--> 00:19:54

Our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he when he was leading the prayer, they said can I use ma le sobre he sollten as easily merchant minca for tillbaka

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

when our beloved processor I'm used to read the prayer they used to hear

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

That sound, you know of the boiling water in the pot, because he used to cry a lot while he's eating the frog when they he was walking in the street. And he heard the woman saying, hello, Heidi

00:20:19--> 00:20:34

Akasha is one of the names of the Day of Judgment. So basically, you know, did you hear about what will happen to they've judgment and Upsilon right away, started crying and he said, Now I'm attorney, Attorney, attorney. He said yes.

00:20:35--> 00:20:47

I know what's gonna happen in the Day of Judgment. And he, right away started envisioning the Day of Judgment. How many times we hear about this in the Quran

00:20:49--> 00:21:01

and this is why again, I'm going to conclude with this ayah before I go into se if again, and remember, Allah is talking about the hearts all the time, not the ears, not the tongues, and this means a lot.

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

Allah subhanaw taala was talking to the Sahaba

00:21:09--> 00:21:17

and Abdullah anniversary this was only three years after the revelation came down only three years and listened to

00:21:18--> 00:21:24

the best generation. Our generation. lm Mia Nina levena

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

kono boom Lizzy

00:21:34--> 00:21:43

isn't the time for the believers that their hearts will humble and feel the meanings of the words of Allah.

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

So they will have

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

how many times are you happy with your salon?

00:21:51--> 00:22:05

How many times when you finish your Salah, you feel like your Eman went up. How many times the only time is when you start interacting with the ayat that the Imam is reciting or the air that you are reading.

00:22:08--> 00:22:27

Omar Abdullah Aziz Rahim Allah you know how we used to read the Fatiha when he used to read the Salah or like pray on his own. He used to recite like this Alhamdulillah you're below me and he would stop. He would pose

00:22:28--> 00:22:40

a rough man. He and he would pose and they asked him what do you pose? He said a stem to roborock therapy.

00:22:41--> 00:22:48

I enjoy the response from Allah subhanaw taala Do you know why do you want to know?

00:22:49--> 00:22:49

Now?

00:22:51--> 00:23:02

Okay, because Allah subhanaw taala said in the Casa de Kasam to salata, vainio Bina Abdi, and a Salah in this means alpha.

00:23:03--> 00:23:26

Allah is calling alpha sola. He says, I have divided alfalfa between me and my servant for either called Abdul hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen when you sell hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Allah subhanho wa Taala above seven heavens would say hamadani Abdi, my servant is saying Alhamdulillah

00:23:28--> 00:23:46

Allahu Akbar, are you telling me in Salah I am in a dialogue with Allah, our life. That's exactly what happens. So insha Allah From today on, I want to inshallah, when you pray, pray like this. Imagine when you're standing. You're standing in front of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah
