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

When

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

it's mercy

00:00:29--> 00:01:14

My dear brothers and sisters, my dear viewers said Mr. Kumar, Allah wa barakato My name is Jessie and I welcome you back in to another episode of reflections of Ramadan. In the previous episode we talked about, you know, a bad worship, we defined it and then we said that worship is a summon Jamia, you can email your Buddha, whoever it is a comprehensive term, which comprises of everything that Allah Subhana Allah loves and approves off from the apparent and he didn't say liens and deeds. And we give myriads of examples about how one can increase their bank account of, of a bad of good deeds with doing some you know, trivial acts of worship, such as visiting one another such as, you

00:01:14--> 00:01:54

know, remembering Allah subhana wa tada such as helping the needy and the poor, such as, you know, sponsoring an orphan or sponsoring the widow and whatnot. And also we talked about the different kinds of worship, like one can worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with his brain, you can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your heart, you can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with your physical faculties, like you know, your organs, like your eyes, your ears, your your tongue, your hands, your feet. So these are all examples of how one can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the question that arises is, well, I need to know who is Allah?

00:01:55--> 00:02:37

I'm supposed to worship him but men who Allah who is Allah, such a very, maybe some of you may think it's kind of awkward to ask this kind of question men who Allah, really I need to ask that question because there's some people who don't know who they're worshipping. There's some people who worship things other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. None the people who are worshipping galaxies, there are people like in the people of the time of Ibrahim, and he said them used to worship worship stars and galaxies, there are people who worship You know, animals with Ebola, there are people who worship like at the time of Solomon, when this Hood Hood or the Twitter was into you know, he went into this

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

scavenging trip and then he found these, the people of

00:02:43--> 00:03:28

this, this kingdom, they will worship in the sun mean Daniela, the word worshipping and making sure prostrating to the sun, Mindo Nila, other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And, and so the man Solomon he got so upset when when the hood was not there in his meeting. And then the hood came back. I mean, the the, the Twitter came back, and then as soon a man asked him the question as well he was he said, I you know, I wanted this scavenging trip and then I saw these people worshipping the Sun mendola This is why I'm late. I wasn't lit with any other reason other than you know, I found these people comes about the people have said, you know, and found them and their queen she by the Queen

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

of Sheba, they will worship in the sun when Daniela was

00:03:35--> 00:03:57

in Indonesia Allah, Allah subhana wa tada season salt animal. I am number 24 was it to her what kombucha is Donnelly? shamcey mundo de la. I found her and her people. So he's talking about the people of Serbia. And the Queen Sheba. I found her and her people worship in Islam prostrating to the sun.

00:03:59--> 00:04:14

Instead of worshipping Allah with worship in you know, the sun. And then here's the hood, who who was so you know, had that predictive jealousy says, How can they worship? You know, anybody other than Allah and Allah, Allah?

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

Allah.

00:04:19--> 00:04:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala says then in solid enameled, Ayah 25, the following area, and when the hood who says Allah is really under the law, shouldn't they worship Allah? Why don't they worship Allah, Allah, Allah, Avi similarity,

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

metric, you know, the one who knows it all some and he knows what you expose, and what you can see. So the the essence of the story is, you know, these there are people who worship the sun. There are people who worship idols. There are people who worship galaxies. There are people who worship trees. There are people who worship animals. There are people who worship monkeys. There are people who worship rats and mice. That

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

People always sheep cows out there.

00:05:04--> 00:05:10

This man by the name of Gandhi, he said in his biography, my mother the cow milk.

00:05:15--> 00:05:46

My mother, the cow, she's more beloved to me than my own mother, is what he says, Why, Randy, why is this because my mother, the cow, or my mother, she she gave birth to me. She's asking me for phase favors, and I'm helping her and I'm deserving. I'm doing things for her. But my mother, the cow, she never asked me for no favors. She provides things for me, but she never asked me for no favors. So my mother, only my mother, the cow, he calls with his mother, the cow she's more beloved to me than my own mother. Well,

00:05:48--> 00:06:13

then you and I need to know who is this Allah? Who is Allah that we need to worship, that we've been ordered to worship men who are law, why should we worship Him? subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, the One who created you and I, the one who created this entire universe, there is not a single atom that moves without the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the Allah usually the woman who is similar to humans will have everything on earth

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

Everything on Earth, that you see and things that you do not see are constantly praising Allah, constantly glorifying Allah.

00:07:04--> 00:07:49

But you and I, we do not comprehend as much as you do not comprehend this via Yes, the prophet Mohammed he picked the rock once and he called Abubakar Baba, listen, and Abu Bakr heard the rock making this video to Allah, praising Allah. And he called Rama, Rama here, and he heard almost heard the rock mykita spirit Allah Subhana when they were building the mission of the Prophet Mohammed it is up to Sudan.

minute Hi, he brings out the life of a dead and he brings out the death of somebody who's alive. Just bring in some vegetables and put them and just look for some time. Keep them somewhere in this loop. Don't keep them in your fridge, but just keep them somewhere and then come back a few weeks you will see something that was alive will become dead and after some time to see foods something alive will come off of them

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

Who's doing this?

00:10:12--> 00:10:25

Who is the originator of all this? Allah subhanho wa Taala The one who created you and I, Allah subhanho wa Taala he created all this for him for you and I

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

or

00:10:28--> 00:11:05

Adam, we have honored the son of Adam. Allah Subhana Allah says he has honored us in so many ways subhana wa tada so many ways. He has ordered a straight bond to mix ouzoud to us. Yes And when the shaytan has refused to mix issues to us, Allah subhanho wa Taala kicked him out from from Jenna. Look, he ordered the angels to make sushi to us. Now he ordered Allah subhana wa Taala when he created our father Adam, he ordered them to mix us up to us. So the angels they may says you to us and when shaytan did not miss those Allah kicked him out.

00:11:06--> 00:11:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala created you and I from the purest thing in this universe He created you and I from from two purest elements on Earth, what are these Jupiter's element water and clay, water and clay these are the two most purest things in earth. Also he has made this a successor he chose you and I to become a successor in this believer in this earth

00:11:33--> 00:11:34

00:13:07--> 00:13:21

yummy Dean cake that is being kicked out and cursing until the end of time after the Day of Judgment. He's been cursed. Why? Because he has refused to miss was rude to you father, to our father to you and I

00:13:22--> 00:13:41

so these are, you know, elevated as an honor this. So now Why should I worship Him? Subhana Why? Well, let me give you you know some reasons as to why we need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, if I were to ask you why they worship Allah. You tell me most of us or most of you tell me

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

because I have to. or because I've been ordered to.

00:13:46--> 00:13:56

That's it. That's because they've been ordered to worship a lot of fear. That's it. Not out of love, not out of hope hoping His mercy but just over fear. Because you ordered you to

00:13:58--> 00:14:38

well asking your son or your children or your child or your daughter did you pray and he says yes I prayed but inside of him he prayed because doesn't fear but he feels a lot but or maybe because he fears you not feeling Allah subhana wa Tada. So we worship Allah, a lot of us do worship Allah No, because I have to. But in fact, what's happening, we are missing out on the sweetness of a bed. We are not really leveraging the beauty the fruit of a bed anymore. It has become some sort of autonomy, some sort of routine. I'm doing it because I have to. It's time to do it. I'm just telling me just do it and get rid of it. It's just like a mountain you surely just want to do it and get it

00:14:38--> 00:14:45

over which you don't enjoy doing it like the Prophet Mohammed. I just did a scene with his wife and used to say, yada,

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

yada, yada, yada, yada. We need to have some rest Aren't you resting with your family is I want to rest rest With what? With Salah. I want to go and rest so they enjoyed worship. So why do we worship

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala let me give you some reasons

00:15:03--> 00:15:28

as to why we need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number one, it is his Huck. Really, it is his right to be worshipped Subhana Why do I need to worship? It is his right? I have rights upon you. You have rights upon me, my parents, our parents, our parents, they have rights upon us. Our children have rights upon us. We all have rights upon one another. Allah has rights upon us. What is his right to be worshipped?

00:15:29--> 00:15:48

I couldn't have been here. You couldn't have been there. You couldn't have been you as something else. Maybe a tree Maybe? Maybe I could have been an animal could have been anything else. But Allah subhanaw taala honored him he created me and ordered me, you know, he fashioned me Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:15:49--> 00:15:55

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, so will they evolve the fashion, the fashion of subhanho? wa Taala?

00:15:56--> 00:16:25

Do I need to worship Him? Subhana I belong to him. He is an Malik. Shannon, I worship him some Hannah. Doesn't he deserve to be worship? If I look at all these blessings that he has blessed me with? Does he deserve to be worship? Subhana when I look at the blessing of my brain, yeah, I can select, I can choose I can say that this is green. This is black. This is white, this is yellow. This is girl This is a boy, I can differentiate between things.

00:16:27--> 00:16:40

from Allah. Yes. And there's a blessing a favor from Allah that you can you have a brain you have an intellect, you can talk you can choose, you can think it's an AMA from Allah subhana wa Taala Have you seen them go to hospitals and look

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

and visit

00:16:42--> 00:17:00

maybe have you seen those, you know, they'd say they have become a lemon. They were you know, they were doctors PhDs, but somehow what happened, they lost it, they can do nothing. Or just go and visit the, the the section of where the burn people are those who have burnt and gone visit them in the hospital.

00:17:04--> 00:17:44

To thank and praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for the number of of the help that He has given you the name of the kidneys, your kidneys, you know then people who go out there at the hospitals every day, because they cannot you know, with others trying to come up with the name. So they have to do this diagnosis thing. You know, the clean sin of the bad blood every day. The name of the kidneys the name of of the air, the air that you breathe is the name of Allah subhanaw taala I can talk I can see I can smell I can I can move my hands. It's the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. You've seen people out there who are unfortunate. They had some of them had you know, good health, but they did

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

not take advantage of it or something may have happened to them and they become you know, fully paralyzed. What happened?

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

Allah, think of the blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

your nose, ears,

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

your hats.

00:18:08--> 00:18:29

Same eye, there's water coming out of it. There is water coming out from here liquid, there's water coming out from my nose, different tastes water coming out from my mouth, different tastes, different tastes from my nose, different tastes from my ears, different tastes from my eyes. Yet the foundation or the source is the same is the brain who made all this?

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't he deserve to be worshipped Subhana

00:18:40--> 00:19:00

these are all favors from him. subhanho wa Taala that we in fact, we don't praise him enough. We don't really you're not thinking enough for all these blessings that he has blessed us with. Also my brothers and sisters, and my dear viewers. The Prophet Mohammed Ali sought to slim he says in this hadith reported by Buhari he says

00:19:01--> 00:19:22

Shabbat Shabbat he narrates that a prophet other system says why the Muslim day reported this hadith Omar you know the right of Allah upon his service and the rights of the servants upon Allah. And then it says, Allah what also the who Allah, Allah and His Prophet knows. And then the Prophet Mohammed says, the right of Allah upon His servants is that he should be worshipped as he is supposed to.

00:19:23--> 00:19:31

That he should be worshipped. Without associating anyone with him. I worship him without associating anyone with him. That's his right.

00:19:33--> 00:19:49

And my right and the right of the servants upon Allah, as the Prophet says in the same Heidi, our rights is that he shall make an agenda anybody who comes with anybody who comes who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala worships Allah without associating anyone with him. It is his right to antigen,

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Allah. So I also have rights. But he has rights upon me and they have failed to fulfill his rights before I need to ask him to fulfill you know his right

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

To fulfill my right, which is to worship him without associating anyone with him subhanho wa Taala the second right because I can talk more and more about this really, you know, the right of Allah of you know, of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the second reason as to why we need to worship Allah subhana wa tada is because, you know, my brothers and sisters,

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

and my dear viewers, worship is the system and our sole worship is the system is to my soul, I eat, I need to feed myself, I intellect, my body needs food. So that's my soul. And how can I feed my soul? I feed my soul through Nevada.

00:20:39--> 00:21:22

Right? Just like this guy. horsemen, right? He's feeding his horse, but he's not feeding himself. As soon as he jumps on his horse. He may fall, why it may fall because he has not been feeding himself. Like what is what you see out there. What you see out there is, you know, people who are, you know, feeding themselves, they're taking care of this bunny, but they are forgetting and neglecting the soul, the inner, the inner peace, the inner heart, it's so absent, it's not there. I remember when I was in the US, in Arizona, I came up from this machine. And then I saw this man, you know, young, you know, young men who are coming into the masjid. And then I left when after praying God, and they

00:21:22--> 00:21:44

came back after after I found the guy there. He embraced Islam. And they went to him and said, What brought you here? Why did you embrace this? Then? He says, Well, let me tell you, it's very simple. I woke up this morning, and I said, Oh, God, I want peace. Show me peace. That's what he said. He opened the door. And he saw bird and he says bird is a symbol of peace. So he followed the bird.

00:21:45--> 00:22:02

And the bird you know flies and lands on a tree flies lands on a tree and the guy just following the bird, it's so simple, so trivial yet so you know, maybe ridiculous even say, somebody's following the bird. And then all of a sudden that bird lands on the minaret of that mosque. So he comes into the mosque.

00:22:03--> 00:22:10

He says he didn't bring me nobody called me. I just really wanted peace. And this bird led me to your mosque. Subhana Allah.

00:22:12--> 00:22:18

There's something inside of them inside of everybody, really people out there looking for the peace of heart, looking for the peace of mind.

00:22:20--> 00:22:49

No wonder why there are so many people out there committing suicide, why are they looking for that piece of hardware looking for that key? You and I have that key the law is why I needed a Bader is why I need to worship Allah because it is the system and systems to my soul. I need to feed my soul. A human being is made of two things is made up of a soul and a body. So I need to feed the soldiers like I feed the body I need to take care of my soul.

00:22:50--> 00:23:02

Also, my brothers and sisters, another reason as to why we need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is because worship is way to freedom and dignity. When the freedom and dignity I worship I'm free.

00:23:03--> 00:23:19

I'm not disgraced. I don't worship my house, my wife, my boss, my husband, my money, I worship Allah and free is he? The Prophet Mohammed Al Swami says in the Hadith, reported by Bukhari narrated by Abu Abu dinar,

00:23:20--> 00:23:39

camisa will take us do these, the slave, the slave of the dollar, the slave of the dinar, the state of the dollar, the slave of the fine clothing of the velvet do and currency maybe. So who slave are you? Are you the slave of Allah? I worship Allah I'm free.

00:23:40--> 00:24:20

I have this dignity and hamdulillah I have this grace, I'm not disgraced. Because if you were to worship anything, Allah you will become so disgraced. And also my brothers and sisters, the fourth reason as to why I need to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is because worship comes to my rescue in terms of calamity. Yes, the day when all the doors are locked before me. I need what I need to resort to I need to resort to Allah. He is the one who will alleviate my stress and distress and anxiety and depression. He is the one who would answer my call Subhana Allah, who will answer my supplication. So worship comes to my rescue at times of calamity. And last but last but not least, I

00:24:20--> 00:24:59

need to worship Allah because you know why eventually What do I want? I want Jenna, don't you we will Jen That is why we need to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we want Jenna, we want you know, something. In fact, more than just gender, the utmost pleasure, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, and my dear viewers, the utmost pleasure in general really is to be able to see the face of Allah. Live hakkoda just like you see the bright moon, you will see the face of Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah make you amongst those that will see the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala every day. I mean, I mean, I mean, as a Camilla hair, may Allah somehow

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

hotellet give us this understanding of worship and help us to practice and to convey and inshallah to Allah do all this you know try to do as many as as we could from these you know types of worship that we can get close to him subhana wa tada I mean as a Camilla hair was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
