Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone Bismillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah or an E or B or Manuela, I welcome you all to episode number 22 of our Ramadan reminders and today I take you to sort of outer Ayah number 18 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, woman has a cafe in NEMA yet ASIC NFC. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and whoever purifies himself only purifies himself for the benefit of his soul.

00:00:34--> 00:00:44

All right. Now obviously we know in the Quran, that when the male gender of the noun or pronoun is used, then Allah subhanho wa Taala is referring to

00:00:47--> 00:01:33

both males and females, females are included here. And again, Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying whoever purifies themselves, then they purify themselves for the benefit of their own self. Now purify here is a translation, obviously, of the term that Allah subhanho wa Taala used, which is a cat. And the cat carries two meanings, brothers and sisters in Islam, to purify and to increase, or in other words, to remove impurities, and then to shine. Whenever something is spoilt. What do we do? Do we start shining it? Or do we first remove the impurity, obviously, we first remove the impurity, then we come with the perfume and the Polish and then we shine that area and make it

00:01:33--> 00:01:33

better

00:01:35--> 00:02:14

than it was in the first place. And this is why I highlight these two terms that sakar refers to purify and to increase and this is its reality, in the Arabic language, and we look at its usage in the Quran, this is clear as well. And when we look also at the example that I just shared, that this is clear, because once you remove the impurity, you bring it back to normal. When you shine, you increase, its beauty, you increase its grandeur, you increase its its its price, its, you know, its value. So this is what zakka means. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that whoever does this to himself or herself, then they do it to themselves for the benefit of themselves. And this is another

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

important point here to address that brothers and sisters in Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala is perfect from ever, and he's perfect forever. Right? He's perfect. He's perfect from ever, and is perfect forever. He doesn't need your fasting for His Majesty to increase. And if you don't fast, it doesn't decrease His Majesty. He doesn't need your good character for His Majesty to increase. And if you don't have good characters, not going to decrease His Majesty, he never needed to create us to be called the Creator. He was the creator before he created, he never needed to create a weak creation that would that would sin so that he could forgive them to be known as the one who forgives

00:02:56--> 00:03:30

or the Most Merciful. He was the most merciful before he gave mercy He was the most forgiving before he forgave, etc, etc, etc. So whoever does good, they only benefiting themselves. Whoever complies. We only benefiting ourselves. Another universal principle of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will never ever change brothers and sisters in Islam. Right? The reality is if you comply, you help yourself you purify yourself and you develop yourself. You're not you know, developing

00:03:31--> 00:04:15

anyone else and from the outset Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah as we've said, he is perfect from ever and he is perfect forever. And that is why we say Allahumma enter Salam after every Seiler that Oh Allah you are perfect, the most perfect absolute perfect one. Salim This is what it means here is some people, unfortunately they don't teach the Sharia as it's supposed to be taught. They they say Oklahoma and the Salam O Allah, you are the peace, this is an incorrect translation of Allah subhanho wa Taala his name, if you look into the we have to go back to the books of Hadith. Right. And look at what the explainers of the heads have said and they have taught us that here

00:04:15--> 00:04:41

alimenta Salah means you are the perfect one and from you emanates all perfection no perfection belongs from you and originates from you Allah or minca salaam to Barak the other genetic but the Quran will say this at the end of Salah. So brothers and sisters in Islam, any good we do is for our own benefit. And I another point to add here is this read this thing that I just said for our own benefit. If we do good soccer and help our children go to gym,

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

right they need to do their own good. They need to be raised properly. Because some parents say today that you know I'm working for my house in my child's house, right? You You can't work you can't. You know praise Allah for your child. You can't. Fast for your child. You need to

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

to train your child bring your child up to pray, bring your child up to fast. Bring your child of Jeff to work Quran Allah subhanho wa Taala can see my tawakkol covers my child, my beard is the beard of my child, my dress code is the dress code of Mashallah Allah will judge them right or if they purify the purification will benefit them and develop them. Understand this oh seven of Allah. Right and oh Children of Adam. This is an important important principle especially in

00:05:28--> 00:06:05

understanding our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and replace it with Jelena Allahu Akbar, woman desica whoever purifies and develops himself or herself, then that benefit will benefit them. All right, we will not carry the burden of other people. They won't carry our burdens, we are responsible for ourselves, they are responsible for themselves, they will sleep in their own graves, we will sleep in our own graves, they will stand in front of a lawn the dfmo by themselves, we will stand by ourselves, we will be questioned by ourselves, they will be questioned by themselves, they will be questioned for what they did, and we will be questioned for what we did. Allah subhanho wa

00:06:05--> 00:06:32

Taala is our questioning here. I mean, you're behind me. Now, to qualify this lesson. Yes, you might say but you know, in another lesson you said that Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise the family's agenda so that the parents are with the children and the children with the parents. So Isn't this a form of benefit? Yes, that is true. That is a form of benefit, but that's the Fatherland, Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala for those who benefited themselves enough to get to gender,

00:06:33--> 00:06:53

right? Allah subhanho wa Taala is not going to take our people from Jana, when he had to build a tailor protect just because the families in general know they have to face what they face May Allah protect us from ever going near gender, I mean, but if you know the entire families in gender and some

00:06:54--> 00:07:03

you know individuals of the family at a higher stage in gender, Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise the children to his parents or vice versa raise the parents to sorry raise

00:07:04--> 00:07:38

the parents to their children, or vice versa raise the children to their parents. Why? Because they're all in gender and they have losses as a mercy upon you. And a gift because in gender you get whatever you want, and gender is gender. Truly when we together with our families and loved ones, Allah subhanho wa Taala as an added bonus to you know, to make us really desire Jana says that this is what you will do when Latina Amano Winterbottom, Maria tobymac and Maria Toby man

00:07:39--> 00:07:57

How can that be him Rita will Latina mo with the backhoe Maria to whom the man and happen to be him Rita whom Allah subhanho wa Taala says For those who believe and they children, follow them in belief, Allah says then we will join them together

00:07:58--> 00:08:23

at the highest level of Paradise as the scholars have explained, I hope this covers the lesson brothers and sisters in Islam. We cover yet another principle from the principles of success that Allah teaches us about in the Quran. I love you for the sake of Allah. Until next time, remember me and your daughter and my family. My parents is Aquila Heron sort of Los Alamos Erica and Anna Vienna Mohammed Weiler and he also gave me
