Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 28 moments with the Quran today's moment comes from spirit, a room in which Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the amazing family and no doubt in the context of Islam than the Muslim family is the best of all families because it's the Muslim families that collectively make up the best of all nations. Right? So we have to listen even more carefully to this particular ayah with an acute focus, what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I mean,
he he n Hola, Paula. Min
fusi comm as YG Lita SCU la wa Jalla Bina ma,
ma, in NaVi there Nicola, Yeti Leto me.
So hon Allah, Allah subhana wa Jalla says from the signs of a lion pay attention, and this this marriage that we're talking about this family that we're talking about, and in particular, the Muslim family, is a sign from the signs of a lot of Allah existence and a lot of being the only one worthy of worship, we got to understand brothers and sisters in Islam, the reality of marriage many a time when people get married, everyone is excited, and everyone should be excited. And we throwing advice from one angle and another angle, and that's very good. But how many a time do we discuss La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah in this capital coming together, that you two coming together,
makes manifest again, a sign from the signs of Allah that He exists and that is the only one worthy of worship because of this is wrong. Allah subhanho wa Taala says from the signs of Allah is that he has created for the males, their spouses, right? Allah has created for the males, their spouses from the females. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us why that from the greatest objectives of marriage is so that they can seek from each other tranquility and sanctity and peacefulness. And together they can make a home. So panela and we learn from this brothers and sisters in Islam that a home is not a home because of the amenities of the home. Does it have a swimming pool? Does it have a
Jacuzzi, what's the property value of the home which enabled the home visit and so on and so forth? Yes, these are side factors that do play a part but the home is truly a home when when you have a righteous husband and you have a righteous spouse, they have come together and collectively living upon the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in terms of what a husband entails, and in terms of what a wife entails, they showcase a sign from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala on earth and Allah says we're generally being a commodity, that Allah Allah Allah, Allah pleases between the husband and wife Melinda and Rama love and mercy. Love is the human element between the
husband and the wife and mercy as the scholars of the year or some of them have opined it refers to the children that Allah brings as a result of this marriage and they are messy. Why because the children if they raised Well, they become a sadhaka to God for the parents, that they become a means of the gender of the parents continuously growing after the parents have even passed away. Because they continue living the legacy of the good teachings of the parents are not of their mercy, that we get to Allah subhanho wa Taala and see deeds that we didn't do and Allah will say these deeds up because of the children you raised and they was Pinilla holding steadfast your teachings and they
did great things and I was proud of them and you are rewarded as a result of the excellence we had last panel with Allah grant us with righteous children me so love and mercy, right and on a lighter note, some say love when the love is there, and mercy when it's no more than because when you have a new marriage this loving as the marriage gets old, alone Mr. And Allah understand sometimes the love deep becomes depleted. So when that when the love is depleted, then they are merciful to each other they don't you know get rid of each other or misbehave with one another out of being merciful with each other knowing that the panela right, there was a wonderful phase back in the day when she chose
me and I chose her but this is this is on a lighter note this is on a lighter note the reality is a lot of places love and mercy in the mercy being the children are also at the mercy in terms of how the husband loves to be in the service of his wife and the wife loves to be in the service of her husband and and mercy in terms of how they collectively make a home together and they have all that peace and serenity and and tranquility. So heinola now love brothers and sisters in Islam is substantial. It comes with knowledge. A lot of the young people they they inflate this concept of infatuation, right I sat next to her in school, I love her and it doesn't work like that. To my
younger audience. It doesn't work like that. It's not just because you saw her in a dream or you saw him in a dream.
Or, you know, you sat at, you know, diagonally to him or to her at some wedding or
in the classroom that now all of a sudden, there's love this is infatuation love is based on knowledge. That's why it lasts longer. Right? With love, you don't get a six month marriage or a turbulent marriage very quickly. And in this turbulence, people are willing to work through it. Love is based on knowledge that as you live with each other, and you learn more about each other, the love is there and it begins to grow and it grows and it grows and it grows until this marriage is not just a marriage for life, meaningful children, but a marriage for a lifetime. panela a lifetime meaning that, you know, after one party goes to Allah, the other party misses them forever until
they also return to Allah. And when the other party returns to Allah, the other party longs to be with them in the hereafter. This is a marriage for a lifetime and the marriage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Khadija Vu so brothers and sisters in Islam. The lesson of today's moments of analyze how, as families we showcase and manifest the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala exists and that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only one worthy of worship and added on lessons from here appear in the form of us needing to live our marriages or within our marriages upon the sinner. Why? Because we collectively carry the legacy of salat wa salam being the best of all nations
because we collectively carry the legacy of the best of all people. And a nation is only made up of families and these families need to be the best so that we have the best nation and brothers and sisters in Islam. We can all do our part in assisting the oma today there's this constant finger pointing right? The scholars are doing this and the daughter doing this and there's you know, they're not doing enough and the moms are not doing enough and we pointed point for getting those three fingers pointing back at us. The question is, you are part of the solution. As a mother and the father, before you complain about the amendment what the mom is doing for your child. What are
you doing to make sure you raise a son who will be an amazing husband tomorrow? What are you doing to raise a daughter that will be an amazing mother and wife tomorrow, right father and husband tomorrow mother and wife tomorrow and collectively, you will be aiding the Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and helping the Lama and the Imams because you'll be raising children who won't be a burden on society but a solution for society. These are the lessons for today's moment. Until next time, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
