Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He will be in my bad. Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone and welcome to Episode 19 of our Ramadan. reminders. This means that we are almost welcoming the last 10 nights of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us health and strength to manage ourselves throughout these nights and showered upon us great diligence and productivity and make us from amongst those that witness the night of power and decree and virtue I mean herbal alchemy.

00:00:37--> 00:00:48

The last 10 nights will begin on the 21st night of Ramadan. Some scholars, as we've seen in some countries prefer to begin the night prayers and reviving of the nights

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

from the 20th night.

00:00:53--> 00:01:19

But if we consider the month to be 30 days, then the last 10 nights would constitute the 21st night and there's no harm in also reviving the 20th night as there is no harm in reviving all of the nights of this blessed blessed month the season of worship, that we are in Allah subhanho wa Taala except from us this month and grant us

00:01:20--> 00:01:35

many many more Ramadan Amira alameen Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah Surah number 59 and this is your pitstop for this evening. Well man in order to be a yachtie letter Weaver, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:36--> 00:01:44

he says here that there's never assigned from the signs of Allah that you witness, except that it is sent as

00:01:46--> 00:02:39

as a means of the creation of fear, as a means of the creation of fear, to strike fear in the hearts of mankind. Why, no doubt, so that they realize and they stop being arrogant and so that they give your objectivity, a chance, right, give themselves a chance to consider the message of the messenger to consider the message of the revelation and to put previous and present bias behind them, so that they do not listen to the message of the messenger and read the message of revelation with preconceived notions that forbids them from realizing the hook and the truth. fear that reads arrogance

00:02:40--> 00:03:18

of people. Allah subhanho wa Taala says this is a wisdom from the wisdoms of Allah subhanho wa Taala has science and is is plural here, which means like I've translated it, which means that Allah subhanho wa Taala has not just one sign, but many, many signs. Allah subhanho wa Taala his armies are many as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book that you will never ever know the armies of Allah subhanho wa Taala except Allah subhanho wa Taala himself, floods, from the armies of Allah subhanho wa Taala, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes,

00:03:20--> 00:03:29

from the armies of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And upon what I have highlighted for you, you can

00:03:30--> 00:04:13

through analogy, add and grow your list. And that list of use would constitute again the science from the science of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he sends to instill fear, proactive fear, not fear that makes you run away from Allah subhanho wa Taala but fear that brings you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah says, fulfilled rule in Allah, towards Allah, escape towards Allah run towards Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever wants us to go away from him even the Hellfire being created in Allah subhanho wa Taala vividly describing the Hellfire in the Quran is only to bring us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not take us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

Allah Allah has created us he knows us better than we know ourselves and he knows what would

00:04:19--> 00:04:50

you know what instruction we would take benefit from. So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Surah Ayah number 59. And this is a principle from the principles of life, the sooner a student from the student of Allah subhanho wa Taala a universal law that we have all these phenomenons and they are there to instill fear, the fear that is productive and takes you closer to Allah now somebody might say But look, we have all this geological, you know,

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

we have geological knowledge of how an earthquake happens, and how a volcano erupts and how these tornadoes form and so on and so

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Go forth. And we don't deny this and Islam does not deny this. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us a brain for a reason. And revelation came to perfect. The blind spots of the brain. He didn't come to read the brain off its auspiciousness the brain is special, no doubt about it. And yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made all the means that create all the signs that we are talking about known to the brain. But that doesn't mean that it nullifies the fact that these signs are present to instill that proactive fear. Yes, the tectonic plates move

00:05:37--> 00:05:52

that caused these earthquakes, but who caused them to move? And why did he cause them to move? Well, this is where the person steps in and teaches us that it's Allah who caused them to move and why did he cause them to move to instill the necessary fear that you need to remain guided woman

00:05:54--> 00:06:39

Illa de halifa at the time of homare, blah, blah, blah and the earth shook such that you know, it was felt their their their beddings felt the tremors and honorable Pavarotti, Allah who and he, he makes, he makes an announcement and he gives a lecture to those present and he says that if this is to continue, then by Allah, He will remove people from Medina, why remove them, because he's highlighting that this is happening because of our sins. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent the sign so that we may fear and return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala that now it's a time for action to happen for people to seek forgiveness in Allah from Allah subhanho wa Taala for their sins for

00:06:39--> 00:06:53

people to change. So if the signs keep happening, what does it mean? It means people are not changing. And it will be upon Roemer to remove people from this place, so that the innocent are not affected by their lack of righteousness and piety, and

00:06:54--> 00:07:21

also from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because Omar was a great man but greater than he was Abubakar and even greater than Abu Bakar was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we know in the hadith of Aisha of the lover and her, she teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see a cloud and he would become visibly worried when he would see this cloud and when a peaceful rain fell, you'd see the happiness on his face. When the strong winds blew, he would he he may drive to Allah subhanho wa Taala, for

00:07:22--> 00:07:58

security and safety in terms of this wind that has come that way. And we taught in the sooner to say that our law, we asked you for the goodness of the wind that has blown and the goodness that it comes with and was sent with, and we seek your protection from its harm and the harm that it was sent with this was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to show us that these are signs to create proactive fear to highlight that there are issues that you are forgetting you're getting too attached to the dunya you need to take proactive steps and 10 back to Allah subhanho wa Taala rather a little shaky, a little movement of something there, then the hellfire. So Allah subhanho wa

00:07:58--> 00:08:14

Taala sends it as a means of instilling practice in the hearts of men and women. And as we've seen, shown you practical examples here from the actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in normatively subhabrata. Now, somebody might say but what about

00:08:15--> 00:08:19

the statement of one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

in which he says that when these

00:08:26--> 00:08:39

these phenomenons happen, he says that this is the means assigned. This is the means of Baraka, it's a means of blessings. What does he mean? Well, we have the statement, the name of this hobby skips me unfortunately at this moment,

00:08:40--> 00:09:24

but it's established that it was said that when it's actually 100, alarmingly remember even mustard or the other one a bit mustard says that we used to consider these the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala Baraka so what is What did he mean when he said that? Well, the scholars have explained such as to how he or him Allah, that what he meant by Baraka is that these signs would cause us to worship Allah more and seek forgiveness from our sins. And that was Baraka. So that, you know, this this harm, ended up being a means of goodness, because people actually changed brothers and sisters in Islam. So hon Allah today how immune are we to, to, to to you know, to disasters, we hear

00:09:24--> 00:09:24

interesting that

00:09:26--> 00:09:57

we don't change. We hear something happened there. Allah make it easy. We don't change. Right? So So handle like the fear is comes and people don't change. So there's no Baraka after that as well. I love understanding Allah subhanho wa Taala correct our affairs and grant us the understanding and make us people who truly understand that we are on a journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this life is temporary. Let us be people who are awake. So when we pass away, we don't feel like we're dreaming. I mean, salam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
