00:10:31 --> 00:11:08

you know, and if it's not on this list, feel free to drop it into the chat. But growing up that that is how you felt like it is finally Ramadan is because of these memories. So A is decorating the house for Ramadan B is preparing special Iftar meals with your family and C is attending that a week prayers at the mosque. So I see a lot of really mixed an interesting mix of of responses like it's shifted so dramatically so quickly. So submit your responses on screen again, if you're coming on Zoom, you should see it popping up. And once you submit it, it will add to the numbers on the poll. The next question is what's your primary goal for Ramadan this year? Is it increasing your Quran we

00:11:08 --> 00:11:17

citation it's a month of Quran so that would make sense strengthening your prayers, or increasing your charity and acts of kindness. I love how 1% so far is charity and acts of kindness.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:54

I shall I love that everyone's got strong goals for Ramadan number three what's your favorite part of the daily Ramadan routine? Is it waking up for some work? That will never be me? It's a miracle if I wake up but definitely not something I look forward to I just do it because it's Cigna. Number B is offerings on a week pairs C is breaking the fast with family at Athar and D is late night reflection and prayers let us know here in the chat I'm gonna end in a second and then we'll see what you guys have to say inshallah. So we got a lot of C C's and DS but I wonder who if you didn't see anything that was on the poll that was relevant to you Angela you're revert welcome Masha Allah

00:11:54 --> 00:12:27

we have a lot of reports where presents community and it's such an honor because I get told every year that mashallah you guys break your fast or you spend you know this is the most consistent you know deed or you know routine that you have in your Ramadan it's such an honor and hamdulillah Okay, I'm gonna end the poll because I see a lot of the responses have come in and Hamdulillah we got 100 Something responses coming in already Mashallah. And let's see what everyone has to say. Okay, so for fondest childhood memory by far everyone shows preparing special Iftar meals with family that's awesome, mashallah only 5% of us decorate our house room with

00:12:29 --> 00:13:05

number two for primary goal for Ramadan this year. It was it was close but increasing your Anri citation was a little bit higher. And then right after that was strengthening your prayers and I hope we're helping you with number three, which is increasing your charity and your acts of kindness here and Ramadan. 360. Of course, shout out to our daily gaming and to our amazing sponsors. And then for what was your favorite part of the daily Ramadan routine? This was very close. So 33% of you here chose breaking your fast with family at Athar and D 35%. Of you chose late night reflection Oh, I just shared it so you guys can see it as well. Late Night reflection and prayers, the hedges

00:13:06 --> 00:13:42

6% of you are like me who chose waking up for the homework and 26% of you chose offerings that are we prayers Mashallah. Yes I love that. Loreen says I love nightly prayers, especially the hedging.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:59

reminders. I'll try to avoid some of the logistical ones. I think you guys are pretty comfortable or getting used to them now with him that Allah of course, as always, remember to sign up for do a little bit every day and sign up for our daily giving campaign contribute some to some of the great work that amalgam is

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

doing and to the high quality and professional approach to Islamic learning that we have been handling I've been able to facilitate through your support, someone will drop the link for you guys, but it's a forward slash give daily for you guys on YouTube and it's also in your description boxes as well. Of course Ramadan 360 would not be possible without the amazing charity partners that make our experience amazing every single year. In the US of course we have H H rd in Canada we have Islamic Relief and in the UK we have forgotten women and that link has been updated just FYI forgotten women the link in the chat. So just double check if you are having trouble with

00:15:33 --> 00:16:06

it in the past. And just a quick reminder before we jump into our session is so final, it's quite surreal. Today we had lost our water in my in my apartment complex they keep like turning off the valves every few days. And I always forget when that's going to be and I was trying to figure out how it was going to I know process some did did with with very, very little water, but had whatever was left in my water bottle when I was trying to eke it out for the hearse a lot. And I was just like, wow, this is the real struggle and oh my gosh, I didn't I was just I do tell your mom, is this gonna be enough. And then Subhanallah I was reminded of the fact that our brothers and sister and

00:16:06 --> 00:16:40

Philistine are reusing their water and they're not even able to have clean water they're using they're using their dishwater to clean their clothing to bathing, because they have so little access to the basic necessities of life. So whenever you're thinking obviously keep them in your consistent eyes. But make every reminder every sadness that you feel when you hear about their circumstances, a reason and a motivation for you to go and to donate to our amazing charity partners and to continue to make you know strong guys and keep them in your eyes in the middle of the night when you're waking up Priscilla mela free Philistine and relieve them of of their of this genocide. I mean a

00:16:40 --> 00:17:16

little bit Alameen with that said, and hamdulillah I've mentioned to you guys earlier that Shahzad we've seen it we used to see his so much of him now it's like a treat whenever we have him live with us here on Ramadan. 360. Many of you have benefited from his OG classes, you know, throughout the throughout the years and another of his his pick of chilling his trends and so many more recently he's been touring. Some of you may have experienced online virtually with us his Quranic vibes 21 principles that was forgetting the full name, the subtitle 21 principles to live your life by or to improve your life oh, I have that embarrassing. I'm gonna pull up the exact title inshallah. But

00:17:16 --> 00:17:49

it's 21 principles from the Quran to change your life and it is a beautiful transformative experience if you haven't had a chance to benefit from it. Look out for it coming to a city New Year inshallah for a mugger on site seminars. Just that it's been way too long. s&m Wa aleikum wa rahmatullah. Welcome back to Ramadan. 360. How are you doing today? Like was said, I love it. It's good to be here. 100 and I'm doing well. 100 now hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. Of course, always with a black background. That's one thing. The world can change. Everything could go upside down. We could have a pandemic, and a genocide. But some things that haven't been allowed are always

00:17:49 --> 00:18:15

consistent shifts that and his lack of background shift. You know, I know it's hard sometimes to MIT to make light of things. But, you know, I want to try to squeeze in a question right now, just before we jump into our session with you and and are on reflect right after is how are you keeping yourself centered during this time? And how are you trying to, you know, maximize your above that still and be as effective as possible. And Ramadan when it's, it's hard not to be so distracted by all the pain and all the suffering that we're witnessing coming out of Philistine right now?

00:18:17 --> 00:18:21

Yeah, that's a pretty tough question to answer. I mean, to be honest,

00:18:23 --> 00:18:28

I'm sure some of you know this. But I lost both my parents about six months ago or so.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:39

Right? When, like, before, October 7, so it's just been a lot that I've been personally dealing with, over these last, you know,

00:18:40 --> 00:18:51

half a year or so. So, from that time on, there's been a lot of reflection that I've been doing in terms of my personal life, my legacy as well.

00:18:52 --> 00:19:34

A few years ago, I lost one of my mentors Sheikh Hamza Sharif, Allah hermle, the founder of Al Maghrib. He was very important part of my life. So I think it started with with his passing, and then with my parents, and then now witnessing this genocide taking place, witnessing it on our on our own devices. There's just a whole different way of experiencing something like this. And I always say what's happening in the USA and federal state at large isn't is not new. But the way we are witnessing it sitting 1000s of miles away. Almost this firsthand experience is unprecedented never happened before. So of course, we're all dealing with a lot of emotions. I think there's for

00:19:34 --> 00:19:49

me, been a lot of survivor's guilt, right, this, this idea of why them and not me. And when you lose a loved one, you know, it's normal for people to experience the survivor's guilt. And I think now with with with because

00:19:51 --> 00:20:00

I think it's not just me, I think there's almost this mass survivor's guilt that a lot of us are feeling there's a level survivor's guilt right

00:20:00 --> 00:20:43

We're sitting far away, and we're feeling helpless. And, you know, we start to think, I wish I had done, I wish I could make a difference. And then we start looking for people to blame. And, you know, there's a lot of that going around going around. So I've had some time to kind of sit with this. And I always go back to my legacy. So what am I leaving behind? And what have I prepared for the life to come? And I keep thinking about that, and how I can be the most benefit to people and the most benefit to my IRA. And that's what I have been trying to focus on these last six months, seven, eight months, is kind of building that. And when people say legacy, oftentimes they think of,

00:20:43 --> 00:21:20

like, dunya legacy, like I'm leaving behind, you know, this great project or whatever, I've established this and that, which is fine, that's great. Well, when I say legacy, I'm not just saying dunya, but also for the ACA. So like, how have I prepared myself for the ACA? So that's why, you know, my, my focus has shifted a little bit in terms of the projects that I'm working on their stuff, some stuff in the pipeline, insha Allah coming, maybe not soon, but on stuff I'm working towards. That's why I've kind of taken a little bit of a shift from, you know, doing more unwelcome seminars, inshallah I do want to teach more about of seminars, that's always something which is, you

00:21:20 --> 00:21:42

know, beloved, to me, it's close to my heart. But yeah, so and the answer that is, you know, for me, it's, I think that may be different than a lot of people. But we what we do need to be thinking about, and I'm going to be talking a little bit about this today, as well, is, you know, what, what are my What am I leaving behind? And what are where are my strengths? And where can I maximize?

00:21:44 --> 00:21:54

The good? And I know, I know, this is a little bit of a, you want to keep this answer a little short, I was going to mention one quick anecdote, and then we'll get into talking Java.

00:21:56 --> 00:22:36

So it's, it's, it's well known, at least here in America that I'm not an email, I'm not I don't serve as an imam of any masjid. And that is by design in terms of like, I've chosen 100. And Allah spent, Allah has given me the ability to choose to not be an imam. And I know sounds weird when people It sounds weird to like to hear that. It's weird for me to say that. But you know, and I've gotten approached many times, even in my local community, and communities, one particular meeting I had with one of the presidents of one of the missions here, and that doesn't mean I'm not like, I do stuff in the massages, and you know, try to contribute, but just that Imam position, and the

00:22:36 --> 00:22:51

President of the masjid said, Listen, you know, you know, we know you have certain reservations, and Masjid politics and this and that, and kind of getting dragged into all that will shield you from it, and will allow you to travel. And it's like, best case scenario. And I was like, okay, cool.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:31

But a couple of things. Number one, the Mission Board is always changing. So this board might be cool, and you guys are maybe cool with me, now, but what happens in a year or two, when a new board comes in and says one person on the mission forum doesn't like me, for whatever reason, and they decide to make my life difficult. And then I'm spending a lot of my energy and time, like putting out these fires, that to me are not a benefit to the larger community. Number two, I, I very much viewed that my life is a limited number of years, months, days, hours, whatever it is, I don't know, that I only have a certain amount of time that Allah has given to me. And among that, from that

00:23:31 --> 00:24:03

time, there's time for my family, there's time for myself, and there's time for my personal data. And then there's time that I that I give to the community and to the people. And I'm sorry, but sitting in board meetings, and like arguing about, you know, certain issues I don't feel is the best use of my time. So that's why like I've chosen to, like I don't think that's the path for me because if I was sitting in a board meeting and we're arguing over an issue, like I feel like I'm wasting the time that Allah has given me to benefit the people. So sorry, sorry to like dump

00:24:04 --> 00:24:28

on you over this. You know, there's a lot of thoughts I've been having over these past, you know, eight, nine months or so. Does that sound fair shake, very honest, very organic answer we always expect from you Mashallah. And it was 21 principles to overcome the negativity around you, I always forget, but looking forward to trusting you more, and the Omega bond site Well, let's jump into today's topic on submission Inshallah, we look forward to your gems and your reflections and we'll join you here in the chat

00:24:30 --> 00:24:58

Bismillah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While he was so happy he will know Allah, Allah Allah even in NEMA I limped tena in NACA antenna Alumina hikkim Allahumma eliminare my in fact winner when fatten me mountain antenna was in your blood I mean Allah Almighty and of course we're gonna Teva wearing a belt, the belt that was organized in Alabama. So the topic for today is a submission. so enamored on verse number one or two, Allah who's Panhellenic says, Yeah, you handed in at

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


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

Believers have the Taqwa of Allah Johann Nadine and Kola Hapa. to party. All believers have the Taqwa of Allah the way he deserves. And this is an instruction for us to live our lives in this way. What does it mean to have the Tocopilla the way Allah deserves? Even Taymiyah Rahim Allahu Allah quoted the early generation of scholars amongst them. It determines who has the best city I can doubt them and, and others. And he said, to work but to have the Taqwa of Allah, the way Allah deserves, is a Utah failure or salt. What are Euskara Palla yoke for what a youth current value answer. He said, what this means is that you obey Allah and you do not disobey Allah. And you just

00:25:47 --> 00:26:31

gotta follow your foot, and that you are thankful and grateful to Allah, and that you don't turn a blind eye to the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. And you've cut off at you and said that we are remembering Allah subhanaw taala and we don't become disconnected from Allah that we live our lives in this way. This is how we have the Taqwa of Allah, in the way that Allah deserves. And then Allah says, What Templeton in our unto Muslim own and do not die, and except in a state of Islam, except in a state that we are fully submitted to Allah, except in a state that we are most of them, which the essence of Islam is. Islam is submission submitted to Allah who depend on it to add. Now, the

00:26:31 --> 00:27:15

question is, how do you how do you make sure you die upon something? So if I were to say to you, make sure you die wearing a white shirt? Well, how do you how do you make that happen? Well, the obvious answer is I just make sure I'm always wearing a white shirt. So whenever death comes upon me, whether it is all of a sudden, or it happens gradually or an illness. Since I'm always wearing a white shirt, I'm going to I know I'm going to die in a white shirt, may Allah protect us. So when it comes to dying in the state of Islam, this means living in a state of Islam living in a state of submission to Allah subhanaw taala. And that is why the first half of this verse is you handed in

00:27:15 --> 00:27:46

and all believers have the Taqwa of Allah, the way Allah deserves. And that Taqwa of Allah, God consciousness is a constant state of being, you know, our scholars of the past, it was a man that Russia and a che Mirta Annie, that a person who lives upon something will die upon that. So we have to ask ourselves now, how are we living our lives, and because that is indicative of how we will end our lives. And this is why, you know, scholars often talk about a good ending, you know, someone who

00:27:47 --> 00:27:59

has mental health in a good ending versus a super hot, a bad ending, that a person dies committing something bad or they die in a state of sinfulness or whatever it may be, that is an indication of what is to come in the afterlife.

00:28:01 --> 00:28:44

Further, very first one, the main reason for that is that it's it's, it's indicative of how this person lived their life. So if a person is living their life in a way that they are doing as much a bad as possible, that they are patient with people's shortcomings, that they are, make sure to keep their tongue pure, they do not. They don't involve themselves in backbiting. And they, they Oh, they live their life in that way, then they would most likely die in that way as well. Right? Even you know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he said, and Canada Africa, como la la la la donna agenda that the person whose last words are not evil, and Allah will enter paradise. And our

00:28:44 --> 00:29:10

scholars often say that some sometimes people think this is like a it's a loophole right? You just say let you know and Allah make sure you're about to die you say Allah Allah good to go straight to agenda. Well, it's not as simple as that you have to live that line a lot to be able to say now EULA Hill Allah in your final moments. So now the question comes, are we living our lives in a state of submission to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:59

In the, the laws of Allah, that Allah has commanded for us, what Allah has forbidden for us, what Allah has liked for us, and will not what Allah has disliked for us, are we conscious of that in the way that we are living our lives. And I want to highlight two particular instances in the seat of the practices syllabi, send them today that will kind of give us some insight into understanding submission like what submission really means. So as we said, living our lives in the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala and from that is also living our lives, accepting the adult. The Divine Decree of Allah number one is first incident is the Treaty of who they be

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

The treaty and who they be Yeah.

00:30:02 --> 00:30:44

From the outside from the perspective of the companions at the moment that that that treaty took place. It seemed like a loss, it seemed it was very disheartening for the Companions because the companions had traveled all the way from Medina to Makkah, to go make Amara. And the context there is that a lot of these companions, they were extremely, extremely homesick because they had left their homeland they had left the place where they grew up. And they were finally getting a chance to go make ombre and the prophets that I send them and inform them that they will be able to not only go back to Mecca, but also they'll go back to MCC and be able to make our Ramadan with the Prophet

00:30:44 --> 00:31:28

sallallahu sallam. And then they hit the roadblock of the Quraysh not allowing them to enter. And at that point, you know, this is a longer story. But this treaty took place between the Muslims and the Quraysh. And this treaty was a treaty of peace. But in the in the moment that the Companions found themselves in and they were told that, according to this treaty, they cannot make a monarch this year. So all the preparations that they had made, they had high hopes to go into Mecca, and they're now you know, it's not like they're at home, and they're being told, like you can't go, they've arrived there, right outside Mecca, they're being told that you have to go home, you know, speaking

00:31:28 --> 00:32:08

about how disappointing This must have felt for the for the Companions, all the preparations that they had made to be there, they're being told that they cannot make ombre this year, let alone some of the companions feeling like this is almost a defeat, that they had come and they the a lot of the Sahaba, they felt that they had come with strength. And they were about 1400 Muslims at that time, coming now to make Ramadan, and they're being told that they have to turn around and go home and the next year, they'll be able to make a moron. And there were other parts of this treaty that were that seemed like Muslims were on the defensive on the backfoot. But Allah subhanaw taala, in that time,

00:32:08 --> 00:32:27

revealed enough time bobina that indeed, We have granted you a clear victory. And now Subhanallah, for the Sahaba they're looking at this, they're being turned away, they're being told that, you know if one of the parts of this treaty was by the way, that if a Muslim in Mecca,

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

kind of leaves Mecca and tries to

00:32:33 --> 00:33:14

come to Medina and find sanctity, you know, and find the safe safe haven with the Muslims in in Medina, the Muslims in Medina have to turn this person back and send them back to the enemy back to the Quraysh where we know that they will probably be tortured and harmed and so on and so forth. And the companions were feeling like this is like this is a grave injustice. And then Allah and amongst them by the way, it was a little the Allah and who was very upset at this moment, because there are a lot as we know, was had have had a lot of pride and honor in his Islam. And he always viewed that honor comes from Allah who's kind of like the idea that even if the Muslims are few, they are weak,

00:33:14 --> 00:33:59

you know, whatever it may be, Allah has honored the believers. And so a lot of the law now is fitting like almost there have been dealt a blow from the Quraysh. And Allah reveals the verse in a movie and we have granted you a clear victory and the demeanor of our model the Allah who changes. Why because he knows now that Allahu Allah Subhan Allah, Allah has revealed that this is a victory even though it feels like a loss. It feels like a defeat. It feels like Muslims have been disgraced right now. He understands that if Allahu Subhan, Allah to Allah is saying that this is a victory, then this is a victory and he becomes elated. And some of the narrations mentioned that he begins,

00:33:59 --> 00:34:27

he began shouting, and he begins shouting and saying enough at that time, he says he's going he's announcing to the other companions that Allah has sent that now this is a clear victory from Allah who has passed on to Allah. And looking back at what happened at that time, even though in that moment, it did not feel like a clear victory. In hindsight, it was, obviously as Allah has revealed, Has Allah as Allah had revealed it was a clear victory, because in those in just two years

00:34:28 --> 00:35:00

in the conquest of Mecca took place about two years after the Treaty of who they began, and in just those two years there that the amount of Muslims had grown exponentially. So 1400 People came during, you know, the year for the Treaty of what they do when they had come than just two years later, about 10,000 Muslims came during the conquest of Mecca. So now looking at what Allah subhanaw taala had decreed, and submitting

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

into the will of Allah who's kind of like to Allah, when when a lot of the ALLAH and he understood that this is the decree of Allah and Allah has decreed that even though it feels like a loss, it's actually a victory. Now this becomes clear for the believers. And for us, a lot of times when we look at whether what's happening in the world, or whether what's what's happening in our personal lives, and I'm talking about things that we don't have control over the other, the will of Allah, the decree of Allah that we don't have control over. This is where submission comes, becomes important. Oftentimes, people in that we're gonna be very clear here, we're not talking about

00:35:34 --> 00:36:13

submission to things that we have the ability to change. For example, if somebody is harming us, and we have the ability to remove that harm, we remove that harm. We don't say I've I've submitted to the decree that I'm being harmed. No, that is a situation where we have the ability to change what is happening, but when Allah decrease something, and we don't have the ability to change it, that is where submission becomes the our driving force. And so for the context of a lot of us now, and we're looking at what's happening photo splitting, and in particular, the reality is that we are don't have the ability to physically change what is happening, right. So in that Allah has decreed for us

00:36:13 --> 00:36:34

a state for our Ummah, may Allah free us from the state, that we physically cannot put an end to this grave injustice and grave injustice is putting it very lightly. That is taking place in Gaza and Palestine, with our our own mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and children being slaughtered and maimed and killed.

00:36:36 --> 00:36:54

Indeed, this is a test of our submission to Allah Who satellite data that are we submitting to the decree of Allah in the sense that there are certain certain, yes, we have the ability to make the on we have the ability to, you know, send aid, and there's things that we can do, and we have to do that that is that is important for us. But then there are things that we don't have control over, right.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:05

In terms of, you know, propaganda, the Israeli propaganda, and sometimes we feel very, very helpless. And we may begin to question the decree of Allah like, why would Allah decree

00:37:07 --> 00:37:36

this level of power and control for Zinus? Right, and this goes against our submission to the decree of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's number one. Number two, in the seat of the prophets lie, Selim is the battle ahead, and the battle ahead. A lot of it is referenced in suits nm Ron, and I advise my brothers and sisters, that when it comes to reflecting upon what is happening in front of steam today and other parts of the world, Sudan, Yemen,

00:37:37 --> 00:38:23

with our my enmart Brothers and sisters, the the Rohingya Muslims, whatever part of the world we look at today, and we begin to feel helpless to begin to feel like we have indeed suffered a great blow reflect us with and Imran and so what I want to do today is reference a little bit of sort of dynamic Iran for our second lesson, from the seat on the life of the prophet Sallallahu My name Sebnem in verse number 137 in Saudi Arabia, Oman Allah who's pinata Allah says but Holloman calmly come soon. Percy you fill out the fundraiser Okay, for Can I pivot and look at the deen that similar situations have come to pass before you now, what is the context here, the context is the battle of

00:38:23 --> 00:38:45

ahead. And the battle of ahead as compared to the Battle of Birkdale was seen very, it was very disheartening for the believers because they had suffered many losses during the battle ahead. And it felt like a defeat for the believers. And so Allah has counted to Allah now is comforting the believers

00:38:46 --> 00:39:07

at ahead and saying to them that you know, this situation you find yourselves in where it seems that the disbelievers the machine calling the courage have the upper hand and you have suffered a lot of losses, and you're going through a lot of pain and a lot of trauma. But Allah has kind of data. Now in this context, Allah says, This is not something new,

00:39:09 --> 00:39:52

traveled throughout the land and you will see the situations like this what situations situations in which the oppressors and wrongdoers have had the upper hand, that they have been unjust and they have caused corruption and spilled blood and they have oppressed and harmed innocent people. Allah has counted to Allah says, By the harlequin public concern that this is situation has come before you proceed to fill out and traveled throughout the earth and see Kay for Canada, our people to look at the mean look at the outcome or the fate of those who denied the truth. And this is referring to obviously in the Quran, we find Allah who's panna to Allah gives us the stories of Adam the moment

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

and we have other examples of those nations that transgressed what was their outcome and even today's

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

panela we can look at, you know, human history and you look at, you know, secular history books. And we find nations that we thought were superpowers. We thought that they were great empires. Now we can look back and see the remnants of those empires and see what has happened. I often referenced the Roman Empire, the Roman Empire, at its in its heyday seemed like it was the biggest superpower, it cannot be defeated. And the Roman Empire lasted for, you know, about 1000 years. But if you were to ask them in, in in during that time, like, do you think the Roman Empire could fall? They would say, Absolutely not. And so this is what Allah who's kind of data is reminding the believers of, in

00:40:40 --> 00:41:21

the next verse, Allah says, how that by Yan denotes that this and this is referring to either what Allah has just mentioned, that the fact that those who are transgressors, Allah destroyed them eventually. And also the Quran as a whole. So Allah is saying, Turn back to the Quran. If you find yourself in this type of situation, how that Biola nurse the Quran gives you this clear insight to all of humanity. Anyone, any human being can open up the Quran and find that Allah is trying to Allah will give them this clarity. Whoa, I'm Elijah, then we're talking and for that for those who have Taqwa this is a lesson meaning anyone can can can open the Quran and and look at the context

00:41:21 --> 00:42:06

and see this lesson. But who will take this as a lesson. It is only those who have Taqwa and who will be and who will be guided by this Quran. It is only those who have Taqwa. In the next verse, Allah who has pointed out and and it gives comfort to the believers and says, what I tell you what I does No, what I think you know that that has no, do not falter. And do not grieve, that doesn't know do not grieve well until alone and you will have the upper hand you will be victorious in con, meaning as long as you are believers. This is an instruction to the companions to submit to the decree of Allah who Subhan Allah to Allah. But this submission comes again, the submission is if you

00:42:06 --> 00:42:48

have Iman, if you have taqwa, the victory will be yours. This is the guarantee, even though in that moment during the battle ahead, it may have been hard for the companions to see this. But here this promise comes just like the Treaty of who they be in production or lack of autonomy. We know we have given you a clear victory. Here once again, Allah Spano to Allah is telling the Companions well until that alone you will have the upper hand you will be superior you will be victorious in control meaning but the point here is that you know, earlier we talked about submission to the to the to the Shetty of ALLAH SubhanA data submission, living our lives in obedience to Allah and then submission

00:42:48 --> 00:42:54

to the decree of Allah who's Panama to Allah. Here. They are tied in together. You know, there's something very interesting that happens

00:42:56 --> 00:43:19

in these during stellium, Iran in the middle of speaking about the battle ahead, Allah has Pennock, the Isla mentions a Riba in verse number 130. Allah has penalty to Allah says, Yeah, you're letting me know a lot cooler ribber all believers do not consume interest on the Alpha mobile Alpha multiplying many times over.

00:43:20 --> 00:44:01

And some people when they're reciting the NAMA Ron, and they're reflecting the pulse width and Imran they say they get a little confused. And they're like What is you know, Reba interest has to do with the battle up ahead. Right? Like what is the connection like what's happening here? Oh, in the middle of speaking about the boundary, the last time the other says oh believers do not consume interest. And their connection there is a low strength data says Old Believers that don't consume interest, a lot of the alpha alpha which is multiplied many times over what tech Allah Allah Allah come to have the Taqwa of Allah, so that perhaps you will prosper you will be victorious. And now

00:44:01 --> 00:44:44

here once again Allah husana to Adam mentions and the tough point here is is tied in and once again living our lives by the city of Allah subhanaw taala and how that is tied into victory. Right. So the our scholars mentioned a very interesting point here that a person who cannot free themselves from a, from something as destructive as Riba, why do people consume Riba? Well, they find some benefit in their dunya by either consuming interest or giving interest or being involved in interest and the world that we live in today. People This is one of the main reasons you find Muslims. May Allah protect is that get involved in interest, there's some benefit for them there. Right? And

00:44:44 --> 00:44:48

Allahu Allah to Allah is saying, if you cannot free yourself from that some worldly benefit,

00:44:50 --> 00:44:59

then you cannot be victorious. Right? And that is one of the main connections here that unless we can fix ourselves, and we can live our lives in the obedience of Allah who's kind of out

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

And then how can we expect victory from Allah? How can we expect it to last for I doubt it will bring victory to this ummah. And yes, we a lot of us, we cannot, you know change what is happening in front of us that we cannot physically put a stop to it right. But one of the things we have to ask ourselves is that if I were to die tomorrow, how am I going to meet Allah who's Panama Diana? Right? Yes, I want to solve the I want to free our brothers and sisters in Gaza in photo Steen, I want to do that. But if I were to die tomorrow, well, what happens to that victory? For me? My life in this in this dunya comes to an end. And so whether it Palestine is free or not, you know, yes,

00:45:42 --> 00:46:22

did I do my best that I sincerely make dua for rather than did I really feel that I that I feel that I had the desire to free did I had the desire to even even physically like let's just be real like that I had that desire to physically defend my brothers and sisters in because I like if I had that opportunity, that I have the desire to do that. But that is part of my Tecla that I died meeting Allah who's Allah to Allah with that desire. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was setting them told us that a person who and the meaning of this hadith is that a person who has the intention for Jihad intention to fight and defend their brothers and sisters, they will Allahu

00:46:22 --> 00:47:07

Subhan, Allah to Allah will, and Allah Hi data will will give them the rank of the martyrs but not Allah whom and as the shahada, Allah will give them the rank of the martyrs when no matter if he or she, even if this person dies upon their own bed. Right? How? Because they live their life with that intention, right, that connection to Allah Who Subhanallah data in the head And in the Haram but also in, you know, where does my faith live? Where does my spirituality lie? Is it connected to Allah, who's Pamela Danna in that way? So in these moments, we have to ask ourselves, where's my faith in these moments of distress for the ummah? And for me, what is very telling is sometimes, and

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

I don't know, I'm sure, wherever you're tuning in from, I'm sure you may have come across marches in your country. I'm in America, and I'm very close to Washington, DC. We've had some major marches here, and I'm the one that had the ability to attend these marches. One of the things I look at is how are the Muslims behaving during these rallies and these marches and these protests? Is there an attitude is there a feeling of victory comes from Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah? Are we Yes, we're chanting, but are we also making dua one time for Salah comes? Are we making sure that you know I gotta pray my salah, are we making sure that we are living our lives and the obedience that Allah

00:47:48 --> 00:48:31

because we know Allah is the source of that victory? That is what it means to submit to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now I want to move on I know my little bit run out of time, I want to move on a few of these verses Allah who's Panama to Allah says, em system, Carphone muscle comma carbon MyTheo. That if you suffered some injuries here, then know that there is those who came before you. They suffered injuries as well. What typical a human who will have a nurse, these are the days that we alternate for humanity, meaning days of victory and days of defeat Allah who has Allah to Allah, decrease hardship for this ummah, and also also Allah has finally decreased ease and victory for

00:48:31 --> 00:49:16

this ummah, Allah decrees defeat for this ummah and Allah decrees victory as well. Why does Allah alternate this? The father in this way? Why does Allah alternated Lea Allah Allahu Allah Medina, amen. So Allah can reveal the true believers. The test of our submission happens when we are facing defeat, when we are on the backfoot how do we behave? Well, you definitely I mean, come Shahada. And Allah decrees these difficult times, so that Allah can bring about amongst you or take in the worlds where it is actually literally, we are definitely there to take a from you to extract from you shahada martyrs, Allah who now you have been very mean. And Allah does not like those who commit.

00:49:17 --> 00:49:55

And Allah here now clarifies and what is Allah Doing Right Now Allah is clarifying for the world. The Azadi mean, right? That these are the people who are hated by Allah who's penalty Allah, Allahu Allah, you have blinded me in the irony of some of these people calling themselves the chosen people of God is that Allah has power to Allah says, Will law who now you humbled by the mean, Allah hates those, Allah does not like those people who are Vani mean? And this is the this is the glad tidings of Allah whose parents Allah for us the yes when we go through hard times, and I know I've referenced Alexa and Palestine but even in our personal lives, the mission means that there are

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

certain things that happen in our lives that we don't have control over. What happens what how

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

begins in those times, and I'll end with just one example of personal loss found in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a Hadith, pudsey, narrative and body were the prophets of Allah. He said, Allah says that Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah has said, Murli, I didn't want me in the desert on that Allah says that I have nothing to give to my

00:50:25 --> 00:50:34

believing servant servant, either about to Sofia, Sofia, Sofia, when I take someone who is close to them, right?

00:50:36 --> 00:50:45

Dunya from the people of the dunya, that when Allah takes someone who's very, very close to us, now this is personal life, right? When Allah take someone close to us, Allah says, A man the

00:50:46 --> 00:50:54

man, the man or indeed as I have nothing to give to this person, when I take someone close to them, if they are,

00:50:56 --> 00:51:38

if they're hoping for the reward, meaning that they're patient, right, so when we hope we're Award and the difficulty comes upon us, when we hope for a word that makes us patient, if the person is patient, Allah says, I have nothing to offer this person except for Paradise. Right that in this world, we may lose everything. In this world, we may lose our loved ones, we may lose those who are close to us, we may lose our brothers and sisters we may see our own children being killed May Allah who has power to protect us and remove this harm from our Ummah, Allah may mean but the agenda for this is nothing but paradise. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant our brothers and sisters in the

00:51:38 --> 00:52:18

US in Faustina and all over the world who are suffering, we ask Allah who has chronic to Allah, to grant them the ranks of the martyrs. We ask Allah who's 100 to Allah to have mercy upon them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to bring a quick victory to our brothers and sisters in the resistance in Palestine. And elsewhere around the world. We ask Allah who's friendly to other to pair of to purify the beloved land of Allah who Subhan Allah to Allah, bathe and muck this from those who wish harm to our brothers and sisters, Allah whom I mean how that will LaHood to Allah Allah Subhana Allah como behenic a shadow Allah Allah and Stella Furukawa to Blake. Is that Kamala Harris yes sir to slim, a

00:52:18 --> 00:52:48

powerful reminder as always, and to those sharing their gems in the chat, Zack Monica, I know it's hard to keep up with all the gems, but inshallah you can continue to share them through the recordings. I know, there was a lot of questions that were coming in, we'll see if we can squeeze in maybe just a couple of them in the chat. If you guys have questions on the topic of submission here, please feel free to drop them. Please avoid I know there's a lot of sub topics that people get really excited and don't rebuy and other things will open up another can of worms that unfortunately we can't do justice to. We don't have enough time for the shift today. But inshallah there's many

00:52:48 --> 00:53:02

other resources and there's other seminars where you will have an opportunity to ask these types of questions. So I see some coming through. Please keep up keep your questions as concise as possible, just so that we can make sure we are mindful of the time if I can get it fast enough. Oh,

00:53:03 --> 00:53:06

hold on. Sorry. I'm gonna have to open up my chat a little bit bigger.

00:53:07 --> 00:53:09

Do you know

00:53:10 --> 00:53:24

anyways, something on topic that I can add, I can share the chat is going so fast, I can barely keep up with it. But if anyone is on topic questions on the topic of submission, please feel free to share them. I see one question here saying solution to the one that is heedless for years.

00:53:27 --> 00:54:08

Look, this is a very difficult question to answer. Because there are many reasons why a person may be heedless. And that's why to me a question like this should not be answered in just a generic way. Because I may mention something I'll give an example. Sometimes some people are heedless, because they don't feel the need for Allah who's kind of data they don't they don't see value in the deen. They don't see value in Islam, like what does Islam do for me? And we know what it doesn't do for us, right? It brings us pain and hardship and struggle and submission. Right waking up if I did, it's not easy, and so on and so forth. And the laws of Allah who's trying to add us I know what it

00:54:08 --> 00:54:35

doesn't do for me, and what does it do for me so, for that type of person, I would say it is very important to reflect upon our need for Allah subhanaw taala it is important for us to reflect upon the transient and temporary nature of this life. The reality which is something that many of us are now beginning to understand more and more as we are witnessing what is happening to our brothers and sisters in hazhar

00:54:36 --> 00:54:59

the reality of this life being so uncertain that I don't have tomorrow guaranteed to me I don't even have the next few moments guaranteed to me. So what is what what is my life really about? And that's actually one of the reasons that one thing that brought me to Islam personally, was thinking about the purpose of this life, that if my life were to come to an end, like what what did I spend my life doing? What was the purpose of it?

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

doing what I'm doing, you know, wake up in the morning, you go to school, you do this, you do that and you have goals and aspirations, and you live your life in that way. Well, it's all for a purpose.

00:55:10 --> 00:55:15

If you show up at the end of your life, and you look back, is that was that a really a fulfilling purpose for us?

00:55:16 --> 00:55:32

And so, for some people, it may be that so what I would recommend for a person who is, you know, heedless, or if you're advising someone like that, it's important to really sit down and have a conversation with this person understand why they feel

00:55:34 --> 00:55:57

you know, why they don't feel the need for this being right and why they feel disconnected from the deen of Allah crontab will log on just that moniker shift. Sorry, I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the craziness in the chat. But I see another question here. Asked by Samira and Toronto is how do we teach our knifes to submit to leave things it likes ie music? Is it possible to teach enough to fully submit and hate it?

00:55:58 --> 00:56:00

So there's a difference

00:56:01 --> 00:56:04

between so when we talk about submitting

00:56:05 --> 00:56:30

and hatred for that which Allah has forbidden, what is required for us is the physical submission, right? And the acceptance of what Allah has legislated for us. So we'll just take like a much easier, much more prominent example Salatin. And I don't have that it's Ramadan, and many of us are finding it a lot easier to get up for federal 100 Allah

00:56:31 --> 00:56:33

and shoulders is a big part of that.

00:56:34 --> 00:56:42

But outside of the month of Ramadan, many of us struggle with getting a four salata ledger. Now the physical aspect of it,

00:56:44 --> 00:57:29

we we have no choice here that is something that is a requirement for us to get fed, you know, and we can so but in terms of liking it, or disliking it, we can say, and I know, let me just say the whole statement before you jump to the conclusion, it is okay to say I dislike getting up for fragile, but it is not okay to say I dislike Fidel. Now what's the difference? You can say when you say I dislike getting a fight, you're admitting that your own shortcoming your own fault or flaw or even your own humanity as a as a human being? Right? We struggle to do certain acts of obedience. And that's that's part of being a human being. We're not perfect. And it's and you know, what the

00:57:29 --> 00:58:00

struggle is the is part of it to say so to say like, I just like getting up for pleasure is admitting your humanity and our personal shortcomings. But Fajr itself, we to say I dislike my job, or I disliked that Allah has decreed. Allah has legislative budget for me, this can be tantamount to copolymer loss found our protectors, because we know that Allah has legislated something for us, then it is for my own good. And it is good for me and it has been beneficial. And Allah knows me better than I know myself. And so

00:58:02 --> 00:58:33

it's, it's difficult, but I know that there's that there's that there's good in it, right? Even though I may not see that. And so what are other, whether you know, whatever other sins or other obligations we have, it is important to make that distinction. It is okay to admit your humanity and say it's hard for me to leave this particular sin. But it's that we can, we should not ever be saying that I don't think like I don't think I have to leave it because then the path to Allah is actually cut off.

00:58:34 --> 00:59:12

So you know, a person going back to physio slightly fresher, a person who says something like, do I even really need to get a perfect job, or, you know, this was something that was was legislated, or there's something that was found, you know, 1400 years ago, and in our modern day life, it doesn't really apply. So the point isn't, you know, praying five times a day, the point is, as long as you're praying, that's good enough, right? As long as you're in some people take it even further, as long as you're a spiritual person, that's good enough, you don't have to physically do like the actions of the Salah, and so on and so forth. Now, what is the difference? Well, the difference is

00:59:12 --> 00:59:55

in the in the ladder in the in the second person who says I don't even really have to pray, they have now cut off their path to Allah whose panel data, they're cut off their path to praying. The first person who says, I know I have to pray, but it's difficult, even if they are unable to pray. But they know they have to pray. There's still a path back to Allah. There's still a path to say, I know I'm not doing this. But I know it's good for me. And I'm going to try to do it. And I always tell people when it comes to the obligations, at the very least make the intention to do what Allah has obligated. And with the prohibitions of Allah at least make the intention to leave the

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

prohibitions. Someone who is struggling with cigarettes for example,

01:00:00 --> 01:00:35

woking cigarettes, were shisha, hookah, whatever it may be, right. Which is forbidden. Haram in Islam, at least make the intention that I had the intention to quit. Right? And don't say something like, I just I know I can't do it. It's not as it's not in me, right? Or is it really that bad and that's one of the tricks of the show you have been to kind of rationalize these sins, right? And the ship on loves to compare sins to other sins or sins to worse sins. That's a common one while I'm doing this, but at least I'm not doing that I'm smoking a cigarette. At least I'm not drinking alcohol to the person who drink alcohol, or drink alcohol. At least I'm not smoking pot, it's pretty

01:00:35 --> 01:00:57

smoking pot. Well, smoking pot, at least I'm not doing hard drugs, there's always a worst thing to go to. And that's how the ship and may Allah protect us. And we seek refuge in Allah from the champ and leads us down this path. And so we never go down that path. Right? We always say, I know this is this is wrong, Allah has forbidden this. And so even even if I haven't been submitted yet I had the intention to submit Allahu Allah

01:00:59 --> 01:01:19

is that Kamala Harris chef said to Sneem and honor as always to have you back with us as rare it is these days but hamdulillah we're grateful for the moments we can get.

01:03:41 --> 01:04:15

before we jump into our grand reflect the province of the light is in them said the most beloved actions to Allah are the most consistent, even if they're small, and what a better way to create consistent goodness that's the support and motive daily and Ramadan. You see people think learning about Islam starts in childhood, but seeking knowledge is a sacred duty for everybody. And when you educate just one Muslim adult about their Deen, you're impacting all of society, that Muslim will share that knowledge with their friends, their children, their communities. And just like that your one donation creates a snowball effect that doesn't just change one life. It changes the entire OMA

01:04:15 --> 01:04:33

and in sha Allah to Allah you get the reward for all of it. That's why this Ramadan, we're inviting you to make the biggest impact by educating Muslim adults worldwide. And it starts with a small donation that you give every single day. Join us in our daily caiman campaign. May Allah subhana wa Tada rewards you and accept from you.

We let him into shape and rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim, WA Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah And Kareem.

01:05:56 --> 01:05:58

So the concept of Islam.

01:05:59 --> 01:06:06

I actually want to begin with a question when you think of Islam. What is the opposite of Islam?

01:06:08 --> 01:06:20

So far, what you have heard about Islam, Islam is submission. So what is the opposite of Islam? Denial? misguidance danger. Okay. coffered.

01:06:21 --> 01:06:25

Atheism, defiance, pride. All right, indifference.

01:06:27 --> 01:06:31

Okay, following one's desires, complete disbelief.

01:06:33 --> 01:07:21

No life. Okay. Arrogance. Excellent, mashallah, that means you have understood the concept of Islam very well. The thing is that the word Islam is actually used in a number of different ways. It's used as Islam as in the religion of Islam, right, which is the religion of Allah. As Allah tells us, in Medina in the law, Hill Islam, indeed, the religion near Allah is Islam. And this is the religion of Adam and Eve salaam of new Herlihy, salaam of Ibrahim alayhis, salam, of all of the prophets of Allah. This is the religion that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us and Allah subhanaw taala revealed to him what led to locomole Islam, Deena, that I approve of Islam as a religion,

01:07:22 --> 01:07:55

meaning the only religion that Allah approves off. The only religion that is acceptable near Allah is the religion is the religion of Islam. So Islam, religion of Islam, meaning it's the opposite of Cofer, it is the opposite of disbelief. But then, Islam is also used for uni for sincerity. It's also used in the Quran as the opposite of neofolk, the opposite of hypocrisy. All right, because

01:07:57 --> 01:08:50

we see, for example, the prophets of Allah are described as those who are, who have not only surrendered to Allah, but the fact that they are sincere to Allah. Allah subhanaw. Taala says in the Quran, about those who surrender their face to Allah, all right, and that is typically interpreted as that they are sincere to Allah, meaning and whatever that they do in their worship, they are sincere, they do not have any hypocrisy, right? And then we have Islam, also used in the meaning of submission and humility to Allah Arza. Right, so it would be the opposite off arrogance, it would be the opposite off refusal. Now when it comes to submitting to Allah subhanaw taala. This submission

01:08:50 --> 01:09:05

can be just outward, all right, such that a person is just outwardly compliant to the religion of Allah, that they're just, you know, for example, they fulfill the five pillars of Islam. All right.

01:09:06 --> 01:09:59

So this is external, this is outward. But Allah subhanaw taala does not just require from us that we surrender to Him outwardly, that when it is time to pray that yes, we get up and pray, when it is time to give the cat then yes, we give the cat, right. This is not the only thing that is required from us. What Allah subhanaw taala requires from us is that we surrender to Him we submit to Him, outwardly and inwardly, externally and internally. Meaning that externally, yes, our actions are in alignment with what Allah subhanaw taala demands from us. We don't follow our desire. We follow the commands of Allah, but then, inwardly also in our minds in our hearts, we submit to Allah

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

And that means accepting that yes, Allah is right. That yes, Allah is my Lord. And I will do whatever that he commands me to.

01:10:12 --> 01:11:08

It is to fully surrender. You know, for example, a las Panatela mentions in Surah to Nyssa, about, about the decisions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the decisions that he would make for people. So Allah subhanaw taala says, that follow robic Allah you may not know by your Lord, they're not truly believers. Any people are not truly believers, until when, until they appoint you as a judge in whatever matters that arise between them, meaning any matters of conflict, they appoint you as judge. And then they accept that decree where you suddenly Mota sliema and they completely fully surrender meaning wholeheartedly. They embrace they accept that yes, the decision of the Prophet

01:11:08 --> 01:11:50

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is correct, yes, it is the best and yes, I accept it. I like it. I wholeheartedly take it. And this is Islam. This is to to completely fully surrender to Allah subhanaw taala. And like we learned earlier, that Islam is not just about submitting to Allah's commands, it is also to submit to as an accept the decrees of ALLAH, any, you know, for example, if I accept that, yes, you know, when you're driving, you have to follow certain rules of the road, right? You accept them,

01:11:51 --> 01:12:46

then you don't go on challenging them all the time. You know, for example, if you're stopping at at at a stop sign, you're not going to be like, Well, why it doesn't make sense to me. What Why do I have to do this? Alright? When when you see the speed sign, you don't complain over there, you don't fuss over there. Similarly, when it comes to the decrees and the commands of Allah, we don't fuss over there. We don't you know, come. We don't get upset with Allah. We don't challenge Allah as if we know better, as if we understand better. Now, Islam is from the root seen Lima as seen lamb meme, right and linguistically. selima is when something is becomes safe. All right from the same is

01:12:46 --> 01:13:33

Khalid bin Salim 11. At Allah Habib Calvin's Salim any a heart that is sound that is free from that is safe from any disease any ailment or any such negative thing. Right? So selima is when when something is safe and sound. And what's the connection over here between submission and safety? That the one who surrenders to Allah, the One who completely submits to Allah outwardly and inwardly they're the ones who will be safe, ultimately, they're the ones who will survive ultimately, meaning this, this test of life, this test of the world.

01:13:34 --> 01:14:08

And this is why paradise is called what thou Jerusalem. It is the home of salaam of complete absolute total safety, right where there is no difficulty, no pain, no hardship, nothing whatsoever, there is no danger, right? No suffering, nothing like that. So those who surrender to Allah here will become safe and sound forever and ever.

01:14:09 --> 01:14:39

And Allah subhanaw taala tells us about those who do not believe that Roomba What do Lavina Cafaro locanto Mostly mean, that many times the disbelievers will wish that they had been mostly mean. They will wish that they had been those who surrender to Allah and they will continue to have this wish over and over again this regret basically, but this regret is not going to help them.

01:14:40 --> 01:14:59

submission to Allah brings ultimate peace and safety. Now the word Islam when you when you look at this word, in the Quran, it occurs eight times, Al Islam Islam as in the religion of Islam, and the word Muslim

01:15:00 --> 01:15:14

The one who submits to Allah or those who surrender to Allah, even the women who surrender to Allah, this word occurs 42 times in the Quran, all right, it's used to describe, for example,

01:15:15 --> 01:15:21

you have Ibrahim alayhis salam is my eel earlier Salam, they prayed that oh Allah

01:15:22 --> 01:16:08

make a Ummah Muslim, a nation that surrenders to you, in from our descendants. The word Muslim is also used to refer to the Muslim or non Muslim in it. Those who surrender to Allah this has been used to refer to the people who believed in or usarla who Salam the Hawala Yun right Allah subhanaw taala says to the to the to the Muslims to the believers that for Kulu shabu be anomalously mood that you should say to those you debate with that bear witness that we are those who surrender to Allah and the verb and also in Al Muslimeen are well Muslim at the Muslim men and the Muslim women. Excellent.

01:16:09 --> 01:16:37

And then we have the verb a slimmer, a slimmer in it. He surrendered, he submitted, this occurs 22 times in the Quran. So the the word Islam in its different forms basically occurs over 70 times in the Quran. Right. And one area that I want to highlight in particular is where Allah subhanaw taala says in surah Allah Imran

01:16:38 --> 01:16:49

sorry in total Bacara Ayah 112 Allah subhanaw taala says Bella min s lemma would you have holy Allah he will who are more sin

01:16:50 --> 01:17:01

Bella who are drew who are in Nairobi, walla how often are lay him wala homea has a known that the one who surrenders his face to Allah

01:17:02 --> 01:17:14

while he is a doer of good, then he will have his reward with his Lord, and He will have no fear no fear will be on them, nor will they grieve.

01:17:15 --> 01:17:31

Now, what does it mean by surrendering one's face to Allah, the One who surrenders his face to Allah, the one who submits his wedge wedge is your face. We also learn about

01:17:32 --> 01:17:46

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanaw taala tells him that for enhanced Dukkha for Paul, a slum to wedge heel Allah that if they argue with you, then tell them that I have submitted my face to Allah.

01:17:47 --> 01:18:06

In another place in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says, Woman Arsenal dienen medmen Aslam award you who will Allah, that whose religion could be better than the one who surrenders his face to Allah meaning the one who surrenders his face to Allah, his religion is the best. His religiosity, his piety is the best.

01:18:07 --> 01:18:35

Now, if you surrender, your, you know, for example, your book to someone, what does it mean? You're just handing it over to them? Right, you surrender your money means you're handing it over to, to submit your face means that you submit, in humility before Allah that you accept Allah as your master.

01:18:37 --> 01:19:30

All right, because when you submit your face to someone, it means that you are now facing them constantly. So whatever they tell you, you're going to do it, they tell you go here, you go there, this a go there you go there, like imagine if there is a camel, alright? That or a horse that has been tethered. Alright? And it's, it's in a it's in submission to its master now. So, if you've ever if you've ever done horse riding, what happens? You you indicate to the horse use, you know, you know, through through different ways, you know, and the horse understands that okay, this means I have to turn right I have to, I have to go right, I have to go left, I have to stop. I have to run

01:19:30 --> 01:19:36

fast. Right? The horse has completely surrendered to its master.

01:19:38 --> 01:19:50

So submitting to Allah means that your face is now always turning towards Allah, that you are accepting Allah as your Lord.

01:19:51 --> 01:19:59

You're not going to be facing you know, your your desire. You're not going to be facing the

01:20:00 --> 01:20:16

The you know, the people of this world they're not your masters. They're not your Lord. They don't deserve your complete total obedience and submission. This is something that only Allah subhanaw taala deserves.

01:20:17 --> 01:20:27

And Aslam award. Yeah, who Lilla Oh also means that, you know, the thing is that wherever your face goes, your entire body follows.

01:20:28 --> 01:20:34

Right? If, like, I remember this friend of mine, she was telling me about how when she was learning how to drive,

01:20:35 --> 01:20:50

she, you know, had this bad habit of always getting distracted by the things that you would see on on the side of the road. So once she saw a puppy on the side of the road, and she started literally

01:20:51 --> 01:20:58

driving towards it, right? And the instructor was like, no, no, no, no, stop looking at the puppy, stop looking at the puppy. Right?

01:20:59 --> 01:21:53

Look at the road, look at the road, wherever you want to go. That is what you look at. So this is the thing about the face that whatever direction it faces, the entire body follows. So to surrender one space to Allah is to surrender one's entire being to Allah, all of one's actions. All right, all of one's decisions. And to surrender the face also means what? That you surrender everything that's on your face, in your face, right? Like, for example, your eyes are in submission to Allah. Your ears are in submission to Allah, your mouth is in submission to Allah. What does that mean? That means that with your eyes, you only look at what is permissible for you to look at. You don't look

01:21:53 --> 01:22:41

at what is haram. You don't read what is not permissible for you to read what is none of your business? Right? somebody's personal private matters. Right? With your ears, you only listen to what is relevant to you. What is your business? Right, you don't eavesdrop? You don't listen to something that is low, that is useless. That is sinful. With your mouth. You only say what is pleasing to Allah. You don't say what Allah subhanaw taala does not like like for example, Allah told us in the Quran, Allah you have Billa will Jehovah Sue immunol coal that Allah does not like the public mention of evil. So this includes for example, swear words, insulting people, this kind of speech

01:22:41 --> 01:22:42

alone is not like

01:22:44 --> 01:22:47

Now what else is in your face? Especially behind the forehead?

01:22:49 --> 01:22:50

What's behind the forehead?

01:22:53 --> 01:23:03

The brain? Yeah, it's the frontal cortex, right? And the prefrontal cortex especially, what does that do?

01:23:06 --> 01:23:17

What is this region of the brain related to or what what role does? Okay, good guesses? Quick thinking decision making good.

01:23:18 --> 01:23:25

Yeah, executive functions, like planning, decision making. All right decision making.

01:23:26 --> 01:23:51

So, when you are deciding something, you always have Allah in mind. Is this decision of mind? Even it could be something as what I should say? How I should respond exactly. You're not acting on emotion on impulse. Right? But you are You You You You keep Allah in mind. Because you have surrendered to Allah

01:23:53 --> 01:24:30

All right. So a slammer what you hear hula surrenders his face to Allah even on the forehead, you know, we frown, right? Sometimes we stare Hawaii, any we give those eyes, we roll the eyes. So be careful. If you want to be someone who has surrendered to Allah surrendered their face to Allah. Then be a be that person who who has, you know, submitted themselves entirely.

01:24:31 --> 01:24:34

All right. Let's hear from you. Now.

01:24:35 --> 01:24:59

This Mila there were some really good comments, but I like saw them but I couldn't catch them fully. So I'm going to scroll up quickly. Wild Samira speaks Go ahead, Samir. I said I'm gonna cat to I just want to say any other than Allah Subhana Allah as unbefitting in especially on the day of judgment where they could do nothing for us and will completely refuse any blame. So we need to completely submit before we're forced to submit and we really have to

01:25:00 --> 01:25:04

Think about that there's only two groups on the day of judgment and we have to decide which kind of ending we want.

01:25:05 --> 01:25:09

Barak Hello Vicki. You know what you said about

01:25:10 --> 01:25:36

forced to submit a last panel Carla tells us in the Quran that bell humo Liova must Leslie moon that those who use to any resist submitting to Allah before on the Day of Judgment they will fully surrender they will be fully compliant. So whether we like it or not, we belong to Allah. Right? Allah subhanaw taala told us that

01:25:37 --> 01:25:47

well who a slammer mantra is similar to old whoever that is in the scars and the Earth has submitted to Allah your own body even submits to Allah

01:25:48 --> 01:26:33

right? It doesn't submit to you you don't have any control over it and he if when you get fever when you get sick you if it were if it were up to you, you would fix yourself within a second within a minute. But you can't the pain that you have in your knees in your in your in your in your body, you're not able to have full control over it. Yes, you can try to manage it. Right? But you don't have full control over it. Your hair begins to gray your skin begins to age, right these are things that we witness we experience and they're constant reminders that this body does not submit to me it submits to Allah so whether we like it or not, we must submit to Allah and in willful willing

01:26:33 --> 01:26:36

submission to Allah lies our success

01:26:38 --> 01:26:38


01:26:40 --> 01:26:40


01:26:43 --> 01:26:43

All right.

01:26:44 --> 01:27:09

So uh, for me personally for reflection, I like to connect things back so I was just connecting this submission back to Dakwah you know the consciousness of Allah and so when you really learn who Allah subhanaw taala is and what you're capable of. It's it makes it so much more easier to have you know, submission and to have like humbleness and to be very sincere and I was just like thinking that

01:27:10 --> 01:27:26

if all these things are kind of like connected dominance peace if you if you focus on one if you work hard towards one other things kind of just come easy as some parameter I think that was one thing that that was really

01:27:29 --> 01:27:29


01:27:30 --> 01:27:31


01:27:35 --> 01:27:36

Anybody else?

01:27:37 --> 01:27:39

Okay, I can see the comments.

01:27:41 --> 01:27:53

So Lance had someone who acts on his emotions instead of intentionally intentionally is Jay Hill. Yes, any we we shouldn't just be acting on impulse

01:27:55 --> 01:27:55


01:27:59 --> 01:28:03

a lot can be said through facial expressions. Yes

01:28:10 --> 01:28:11

Accra go ahead

01:28:18 --> 01:28:19

go ahead the clock

01:28:20 --> 01:28:21

is caught up

01:28:22 --> 01:28:23


01:28:25 --> 01:28:25

Go ahead.

01:28:27 --> 01:28:31

If you're having any trouble unmuting let us know inshallah you should be able to do it automatically

01:28:38 --> 01:28:48

think it was having some trouble with the unmuting inshallah there's a lot of good reflections in the chat I don't know if you've called them with yes other mashallah, I'm reading through them.

01:28:51 --> 01:28:55

All right. One more thing I want to share at the end is

01:28:56 --> 01:29:13

grace that we shouldn't be making. Chips are shared a very important idea that well Atomo tuna Allah will enter Muslim owned that last panel partner tells us that do not die, except while you are ones who are in submission to Allah.

01:29:14 --> 01:29:16

And in the Quran, we learn about

01:29:19 --> 01:29:41

another da with about a DA which is Robina of reviling or sovereign what our fellow Muslim mean. That when you especially experienced trials in your religion, or you witness things, that you become afraid that this could literally ruin my Islam or the Islam of my children.

01:29:43 --> 01:29:59

Then you ask Allah Oh Allah, Tala Fana Muslimeen give us the ability to die as Muslims as those who are in submission to you because we don't know how. How things can change

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

Right, and how if a person is tested in regard to their Islam to their faith, they could literally lose it. Right? And the way that there are so many fitten so many different kinds of trials, where there's a constant, you know, effort by different groups of people to literally ruin our Islam to ruin our faith. So we ask Allah to keep a steadfast on Islam and let us die on Islam, what Allah for now Muslimeen

01:30:34 --> 01:30:37

All right, sister Shanaze go ahead

01:30:47 --> 01:30:50

and as we see here and muted, well, we can't hear you just yet.

01:30:52 --> 01:30:55

Oh, there we go. Hello, Salam alikoum.

01:30:57 --> 01:31:02

Allah, I'm just reflecting and I thought I was getting some feedback or under reflection.

01:31:04 --> 01:31:37

I think submission is so critical at every minute of your life. And actually my submission, I feel that it releases the responsibility on my shoulder, in the sense that if anything you do you ask the question, what does Allah wants you to do? Then you make all effort, and then the outcomes will be a loss. Right? And if even if there is not what you expect, you have absolute

01:31:38 --> 01:31:41

belief that Allah knows better than you do.

01:31:42 --> 01:31:49

Yeah. Any Allah has not left it to us to figure out how to worship him. Right?

01:31:51 --> 01:32:22

There's any in Islam is actually liberation as well. Like, because we're not having to deal with, you know, figuring out what to do. Is this the best? Is this the right thing? Now, let's do this. No, now let's do that. When Allah subhanaw taala has given us Islam as a complete religion, a perfect religion, he has made our lives very, very easy. And hamdulillah radical RPKI

01:32:23 --> 01:32:24

sister presented

01:32:29 --> 01:32:33

Yes, submission for when I was listening to

01:32:34 --> 01:33:23

she saw then your lecture as well. I just want to just drive the minds of our sisters over here to what happened to Musa Al is now when Allah asked him to take money is right along and just get out of that place. He didn't know that Allah is going to split that Nile for him. And this is going to be a safe way so that they can pass through. But what he knew was that his Allah has ordered him and he's never going to leave him alone. Now for him, it was just to it. So submission for me is when Allah says do it, just do it. Don't think whether what is going to be the outcome, what is going to be the result? What is the worst thing to say? Because Allah is never going to abandon you. If you

01:33:23 --> 01:33:41

are devoted, for me submission is basically the pain I would say the conviction that makes you do that thing without thinking about the result. So this is what I could get for myself but lambda Lilla is actually located an excellent reflection radical Lubbock

01:33:43 --> 01:33:43


01:33:50 --> 01:34:05

Assembly and for me, is submission personally, has been to the word of Allah as I've recently lost my husband so accepting his passing it as part of Allah's decree and

01:34:07 --> 01:34:09

so and trusting in others wisdom as well

01:34:11 --> 01:34:13

so yes permission come has been

01:34:14 --> 01:34:18

and then finding solace in our fate

01:34:19 --> 01:34:20

01:34:37 --> 01:34:39

Zack Allah first an amazing amazing

01:34:40 --> 01:34:58

lecture and but I want to say is it reminds me of you know, in the Quran it says that God has made us as an adult a queen, and but we could also be the next it says some are gonna. So if we submit I think we are the aesthetic whim but if we do not, then we are done with the rejected ones.

01:35:00 --> 01:35:02
