lira Bella Alameen will be ministering on Salim Salim Anahata meant to be in the vino Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira and lamb Deen Ahmedabad, probably surgery surgery or SLE Emery. Look at that some will decide how they will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to my brothers and sisters in Islam. Salaam Allahu Aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Allah as peacemakers blessings mais mercy may safe to be upon you all, to Kampala, Lavinia Amin consola Mal, we have to introduce our lessons in the same way and by making this dua, may Allah subhanahu

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

Attallah accept from us our deeds, especially during this month, and we cannot thank Allah subhanho wa Taala enough, we thank Allah for blessing us to worship him during yet another night from the nights of Ramadan for preserving us in His obedience for preserving us with good health and with strength Subhanallah to manage the fasting and the night program. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen yesterday in Surah Yusuf,

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

we stopped at

00:01:06--> 00:01:12

a new point in the life of use of Alayhis Salam, and that is when he

00:01:18--> 00:01:54

became established in Egypt by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the decree of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we deduce from this vow indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is indeed in control of everything all the time, every time and yes, we do have a choice. And when things go, as we choose for them to go, then it is because Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed things to be as we planned them to be ultimately, what matters Sharona Illa Yasha Allah, all our plans and all our

00:01:55--> 00:02:26

all the means that we take ultimately, I will under the control and under the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala so everything that happened to us of Allah he Salem was indeed the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala and and also deduce from the Subhan Allah, how Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy is ever close and ever near. But Subhanallah when we drowning in the test, we fail to recognize the eases that Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us and providing for us use of Allah he Salam could have been captured by a people and killed, he could have been

00:02:28--> 00:03:12

bought by a family far worse off than this family that has purchased him and he could have been bought by a master who had a whole different vision for him. But Subhanallah Allah's Mercy is close to us if alayhi salam and the person who is inspired to buy him is the Minister of Egypt, and he does so what the intention, meaning part and parcel of his intention is perhaps adopting this child making this child a child for them in their home, which denotes that they do not have any, any children. So this is a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala this situation could have been far worse and we spoke about how Allah's Mercy is ever close when we also spoke about how Allah inspired one

00:03:12--> 00:03:51

of the brothers to swerve the group away from killing use of it salaam, but rather throwing him down oh, well, this is from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah subhanho wa Taala fast forwards the story for us here in Surah Yusuf by telling us that now Yusuf has reached the age of 40 as the scholars of the sea, they say when they explained this particular verse what I'm Bella I should do it now. Hoekman were element Elmer, that use of Alayhis Salam was given knowledge and given the ability to practice upon this knowledge, and the scholars of tafsir highlight that this entails LuBu prophethood when you have an oboe and prophethood, you have knowledge and the ability

00:03:51--> 00:04:17

to practice this knowledge. And the no doubt, my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam, from the completeness of knowledge, as we said yesterday, is developing for ourselves what we call the tunes of faith, knowledge and action, knowledge and action, meaning knowledge that is connected to action and action that is connected to knowledge, right, that we are the Ummah right in the middle, we have sound knowledge, and we implement that knowledge and this is ultimately

00:04:18--> 00:04:56

the best of the best scenarios. And this is really the representation of the Gambia and he was salat wa salam, the prophets and messengers of Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah gave them knowledge and gave them the ability to practice it. So whoever gets knowledge and practices on their knowledge, then they are resembling them they are animals salatu salam, whoever has knowledge and doesn't practice on their knowledge, then they are resembling the people who received Allah subhanho wa Taala as anger, whoever act as action and doesn't have knowledge then they are resembling those who Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed as having gone astray Subhanallah and we need to decide which group do we

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

want to be from? Which group do we want to be in? No doubt

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

But the group that has in it them they are the humans. Salatu was Salam. And that is when Surah Fatiha, we say Idina Serato Mr. Clean, guide us to the straight path. The straight path here is the path of the Quran is the path of Islam. It's the path of iman. It's the part of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because all of these matters denote one idea. And that is the idea of knowledge and action being married together, no knowledge except that there's action, no action, except that there's knowledge. And that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala then in a another verse in the Quran teaches us

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

you know,

00:05:36--> 00:05:48

when it comes to syrup, and Levine and AMTA it hit the throttle, Mr. Kane, the straight path is the path of those who received Allah's favor. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about those who received Allah's favor.

00:05:49--> 00:06:29

Right? Mana been our CDFA in our Shuhada was Saleh and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in another portion of the Quran, who are those that received Allah's favor? Allah says, The been the prophets of Allah. And included in the prophets are the messengers was the deity and those who were the truthful ones like Abu Bakr, Siddiq, or the Allahu and those who believed the ways of the messengers and prophets that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent them hook line and sinker meaning they took on their message wholesale and wholesomely. They did not pick and choose, or shahada, those who fought in the path of Allah subhanho wa taala. And what mattered was salah, Hina, and the righteous, the sila Him,

00:06:30--> 00:07:15

those who depict and resemble the way of the MBR mo salatu salam, they marry between knowledge and an action Hamdulillah. So, here, Allah subhanho wa Taala takes us to the point where use of Allah he Salam, as the scholars say, became a prophet. Now do the tests and know the test continue Subhanallah let's let's recap. Yusuf alayhi salam is tested by being abducted, tested by being abducted by his brothers tested by being thrown into the well tested by being thrown into the wild by his brothers. These are not what these are, this is not a test these are these are more than one test being thrown into a wall is a test. But being thrown in the into a well by your own brothers is

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

a test within the test.

00:07:19--> 00:08:02

I'm not repeating for the sake of repeating here, there's intent I'm trying to highlight you all Subhanallah let's count the tests. Then. being abducted for a second time by the strangers is a test then being assumed as a slave is a test then being transported to another land so you become an alien in that land. That is a test and remind the who your karma and as they say, Do you have a residence permit no residence permit no passport, no nationality. You're an alien here. And your very most very well could be illegal. I mean, you have so many levels and tiers of weaknesses that apply to you. Okay, this is a test then being thrown into the slave market in other test then being

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

bought as a slave another test

00:08:06--> 00:08:32

and then the tests continue how so? Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and this is from the beauty of the Quran again and we spoke about how the Quranic studies are the best of all studies because they leave information that is access to requirements, that through you interacting with the Quran, you will piece the pieces together, you will fill the gaps that seemingly are missing. Allah subhanahu Attallah says or our that will let you have you bait Yeah. That the

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

the woman

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

whose house he was in because Allah subhanho wa Taala describes this to us to teach us again another level of weakness that he was a slave in this home with no rights with no power. And she was

00:08:52--> 00:09:02

in charge and she had the power. So Allah is highlighting to us. Allah could have said she called him to her. Now Allah says she

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

plotted she planned

00:09:08--> 00:09:08

to

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

capture use of Allah he Salam in a predicament in a predicament that met her desires. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in what way that she in whose house he was that he was in her house.

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

So he's in another weak situation here. What does she do? She

00:09:30--> 00:09:39

intended use of Alehissalaam. She intended use of either his Salah she intended adultery, she intended Zina was used for either his Salah

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

and for those who interact with the Quran, part and parcel of interaction is knowing about our circumstances and situations in the life that we live. And for things to get to the stage. What does it mean? It means that use of Allah he Salam is in her home. He's living in her home. He's waking up in her home he's eating in her home

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

He is so handsome. He is so beautiful. We said his handsomeness is described as beautiful. He has half of all beauty. His character is beautiful, his speech is beautiful, His looks are beautiful, his manifestations are beautiful. Everything about him Subhanallah melts the heart of a woman, and she has to watch him day in and day out growing up and then he gets to this peak, the peak of his his manliness and his manhood.

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

And she slips, it's too much for her.

00:10:31--> 00:11:09

What does she do, she executes a plan. And again, we know that a plan doesn't just happened all of a sudden. And I explained this to the brothers and sisters in Brisbane, that it starts with with Sherpa and planting a fleeting thought. And then you given that fleeting thought a time when you give that fleeting thought a time it becomes a consolidated thought, somewhere a fleeting thought, then you give the consolidated thought a time it becomes an idea. So more consolidated thought it's become now an idea. Then you give the idea a time it becomes a plan, or a plot, depending on what what the idea is. From an idea, it turns into something tangible now because you're giving it a

00:11:09--> 00:11:56

time. When you give the project the plan a time. It turns into execution. It turns into a manifestation what you probably didn't plan starts happening Subhanallah you act out the plan. And then if you repeat acting out the plan, it becomes a habit Subhanallah from a fleeting thought that shaytan planted in your mind to Abbott there's a long process. There's a process. So Hala, there's a process. It doesn't just happen overnight, you don't just slip overnight, Chapin sets a series of things in motion, but to you, they constitute a series of fleeting realities, but it's you who brings it together by giving the unnecessary airtime. When you have too much free time, people have

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

too much free time.

00:11:58--> 00:12:31

They have time to plan sin and prod sin and enact sin and so on and so forth. Because they give useless things airtime. They justify the lives that they live by giving a time to use these things that takes them down and pit Subhan Allah Subhan Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says lead to hot water shelter and do not follow the footsteps of shaved on the fleeting thought is a footstep do not follow it, the moment you let yourself onto it, it's going to pull you into a direction it has momentum, like we said, fleeting to consolidate it to an idea to a plan to an action to a habit

00:12:33--> 00:13:16

Subhanallah so before she got him into the room and she planned which room and the doors how they will be and will the keys beyond the door and the shutters will be working and they will be ready to be shot and the curtains are all ready to go. No doubt she was plotting and planning this was something was working on her mind from long before. And now came the time to execute. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that he was in, in the weakest of, of circumstances and situations. And to the extent that you feel if he answered the call, you'd say he's excused. You'd say he's miskeen what can he do? You'd say so why don't why he's the slave. This is what she did. But use of either

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

he said I'm shows us how to be Subhanallah

00:13:19--> 00:13:34

and Allah subhanho wa Taala is very descriptive in this verse for our that who let the who of you Beatty here that she in whose house he was she in whose house he was? What did she do?

00:13:37--> 00:14:07

She enticed him towards her. Now you got to remember, we're not just talking about use of it he Salem in all these weeks circumstances and situations. We're talking about use of Alayhis Salam as a man at his complete stage of manhood, does a man not have desires. Of course a man has desires is a man is he married? No, he's not married. Is it part of his nature to desire a female it's part of his nature to desire a female is not part of a man's nature to desire a female it is this is the natural

00:14:09--> 00:14:17

situation when a person is upon their fitrah how Allah subhanahu Attallah created them. Right? So he even has this going on for him.

00:14:18--> 00:14:40

And now you have what we call Yanni a test that is oven ready test of Allah upon you and it's often ready. What do we often read, it's ready to be served. She's, you know, normally normally it's the male who is trying to reel in the female. Because the way the male is wired and designed is different to the female.

00:14:42--> 00:14:57

The male is enticed through looks through the voice through the scent and the smell and so on and so forth. And so the Sharia closes the doors, ask the female to cover to cover her beauty to not leave her home with perfume that can be smelled by other people and so on and so forth. Because that's the main

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

the

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

Female it's not the same

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

for the female to be enticed it takes much more.

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

Because she's more emotional by design.

00:15:09--> 00:15:39

You can say more substantial by design. But here you have the opposite. That she her emotions have been channeled have been nurtured by her own doing, by her lack of morality, her lack of character, her lack of a HELOC. And again, this is another test for use of we spoke about how he grew up in a home of idols, meaning they were isolated, but also how he grew up in a home of no moral values. If she had a working marriage with her husband, would the situation be as it is?

00:15:41--> 00:15:53

I mean, one would think not in normal circumstances, if she had a sense of morality, would things be would use for insulin being the circumstances situation where you plot and plan something haram like this? No.

00:15:54--> 00:16:12

So this tells you the mindset and the heart set, and the soul set of the people that use of Allah he Salam had to grow up with, and he went through his teens through his 20s through his 30s SubhanAllah. Guided again, going back to the earliest lessons we took how powerful that the essence of a father and mother in the home,

00:16:13--> 00:16:31

and how long lasting can they be when they taught in an impactful way. When we teach our children about Allah, we should teach them about Allah in an impactful way, not in a way like how we teach math, and how we teach science and how we teach geography, how we teach chemistry, we just teach it as a body of information, not a body of knowledge.

00:16:32--> 00:16:44

There's a difference between information and knowledge. When you process information, it becomes knowledge. When you analyze information, it becomes knowledge, who's into it over here, programming it

00:16:46--> 00:17:15

here, Mashallah. So you have a circumstance and situation here, where you have parents teaching their children sometimes but they don't teach it to them in an impactful way. And here we see the results of the prophetic way of parenting when you teach in an in an impactful way, it lingers hon Allah, it lasts Subhanallah by the will of Allah subhanahu to Allah, no doubt, they will also parents making dua for their child and it's still feed from Allah subhanho wa taala. It still fear from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:17:17--> 00:17:19

Yusuf alayhi salam is in the situation.

00:17:20--> 00:17:32

And Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah says, wahala Cateel Abobe after she called them in, not only did she close the doors, she locked the doors. And you can imagine if someone's locked the doors, then the windows also locked.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

You can't see through them the shutters perhaps that are down.

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

Meaning she created a secure environment.

00:17:42--> 00:18:21

To fall to her desires to get it over and done with. She was intoxicated by the circumstance by the situation. She fell for it. hook line and sinker. As they say we've repeated this, this is the second time I'm saying this. This is an English colloquial term meaning she is hooked on to the idea and she is sinking with the idea. And she is going with it. There's nothing that's going to pull out of it. And she goes to this grown man who has natural desires, who is of age and she says Hey Taylor come to me. She calls him to her.

00:18:22--> 00:18:28

When no one can see, no one can see them. No one can see them.

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

Subhanallah

00:18:33--> 00:18:33

and

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

throughout the story, you don't hear the voice of use of Allah. He said

00:18:39--> 00:18:54

from the time he spoke to his father and told his father of the dream when he was a young boy till the age of 14. Now we don't hear anything. Allah doesn't tell us anything about use of varicella. But suddenly his voice appears. He says my either Allah I seek refuge in Allah.

00:18:55--> 00:18:55

Let you know.

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

Where did use of Alayhis Salam learn about Allah from

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

from the minister,

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

from the minister's wife,

00:19:06--> 00:19:21

from the people in the slave market, from the caravan who stole him from the well from the brothers who abducted him when they abducted him. Maybe before but after from WHO? What do we have in terms of our timeline? His father

00:19:23--> 00:19:34

might have I seek refuge in Allah. Why is he seeking refuge in Allah? What did his father teach him before he was stolen from his home? In Rob botta, and even hockey?

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

Indeed your Lord is your protector?

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

Is your nurturer to perfection?

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

Is your Sustainer the one who gave you life the one who gives you death?

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

And you'll notice I mean, he's omniscient. He's all knowing he knows where you are, even though when no one knows where you are use of when you're in the body.

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

him off the wall and you think no one knows where you are. Allah knows we spoke about this when you in the caravan and you think nobody knows where you are, Allah knows when you're in the safe market and you think nobody knows where you are, Allah knows. And when you in the room with the woman and everything is locked doors and windows and you think nobody knows where you are and nobody can see you. Allah knows my other Allah He sought refuge in Allah and Allah is watching me Allah knows who I am.

00:20:25--> 00:20:32

Allah knows where I am. And Allah is wise as to why I'm here. This is a test. This is a test. And then he says in who?

00:20:34--> 00:20:35

He says

00:20:37--> 00:21:02

it in the horror of BS and MS. Why? He says Indeed he is my Arab. Who was good to me, made my stay comfortable. Now the scholars have to see to say, Rob here could mean one of two things could mean either Allah subhanho wa Taala because Rob is from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala, meaning the Lord. But Rob in the Arabic language also refers to the master.

00:21:04--> 00:21:14

And remember a few verses ago, earlier on when he was a young boy, and the minister brought him home, what did he say to his wife, Sydney, Martha,

00:21:15--> 00:21:55

Make his stay comfortable. So he is remembering this good deed. And he is saying to her in Robbie, Santa Martha, why? That he is my master who made my stay comfortable. And subhanAllah. We learn two things upon the two views of the scholars of Syria. Because if we say Rob means Allah, then he's saying, Indeed Allah is my Lord and Allah was good to me. Allah has been good to me. My situation could be worse. I can do this to Allah. Allah gave me a father who's a prophet, a grandfather was a prophet Allah taught me how to interpret dreams, how to interpret events, Allah made me a Prophet Allah has been good to me. Allah saved me from idolatry. Allah saved me from his guidance. So this

00:21:55--> 00:22:03

is one tafsir the other tough series, indeed the minister of Egypt, who bought me the master of this palace, he is my master.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

And he's made my stay comfortable.

00:22:07--> 00:22:24

So what does this teach you? That use of was beautiful in His Eman in Allah subhanahu Taradale upon the tafseer that Rob here means Allah. And it also teaches you how beautiful use of words in his character. He's saying, How can I do this? When you are his wife? And he's been so good to me? How can I do that to him?

00:22:25--> 00:22:46

This is not just an act between me and you is going to hurt him. How can I hurt him when he's been so good to me? This tells you Subhanallah how beautiful this character was. And this is the beauty of the Quran. As you go through the TFs here and you understand the different views regarding different verses you see Subhanallah you can still extrapolate benefits that Subhanallah

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

compliment the story and the lessons of the story even further.

00:22:52--> 00:23:02

So use of what we said this use was beautiful look just in his looks. He was beautiful in his email. He was beautiful in His Islam. He was beautiful in His a HELOC and his character, not just his whole look and his appearance.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

Subhanallah This is what YouTube says.

00:23:07--> 00:23:29

Then he says in the hula hoop retrovirally Moon, he goes Indeed, Allah are indeed the One who is an oppressor will never ever succeed. Indeed, the one who is unimpressive never, ever will succeed. So according to the Tafseer here, well, both of us apply to this verse. Because if you sin, you oppress Who do you oppress?

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

Who do you oppress when you sell?

00:23:33--> 00:23:45

yourself? You oppress yourself? And if the if Rob here, if we go with a tafseer that Rob meant here, he's mastered the one who bought him from the safe market, then who would he be oppressing?

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

Come on, Michelle. Yes, yeah. And you guys are like Masha brothers.

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

Do I need to speak a different language? Are you with me?

00:23:56--> 00:24:03

I'm speaking to everyone. Are you looking at him? Masha, Allah, everybody looks at each other. Are you following the chain of thought here?

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

If we say Rob here means the minister of Egypt who bought him, when you say is indeed the One who oppressors will never ever succeed? Who would he be oppressing? If he answered the call of this woman,

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

the minister, he will be oppressing the minister.

00:24:24--> 00:24:47

So Yusuf alayhi salam upon both of seeds is teaching us an important lesson here. He is teaching us that the one who oppresses himself will never ever succeed, and the one who oppresses other people will never ever succeed. For Booneville Lomatium al Qiyamah. Oppression is not just the darkness, but as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is darknesses on the deification of Guru Matthew Malkia

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

Subhana Subhanallah

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

we shouldn't oppress ourselves with by selling will never ever succeed. And that is where my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

Whenever you sin, you see the effects of that sin, your memory becomes weaker. What do you remember you forget SubhanAllah. And you also see the sin in your day the pious before us used to say, we never ever sinned X hon Allah meaning we never, ever oppressed ourselves, except that we felt that oppression in our writing animal in and in our wives, meaning in our families, in our spouses, that someday Subhanallah we felt La Ilaha illa Allah today, my relationship with my wife was difficult. We argued a lot.

00:25:32--> 00:25:38

Whenever I saw her, I felt something that Subhanallah I can't explain. I didn't feel something beautiful.

00:25:39--> 00:25:42

My writing animal it was stubborn. Subhanallah

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

they will tell you this, that they would find that one Allah the horse is being stubborn, the camel is being stubborn, they will think Subhanallah What did I do in terms of my deeds?

00:25:55--> 00:25:55

What did I do?

00:25:59--> 00:26:05

They found that they, they had difficult days in their relationship with their wives. What did I do with the children? What did I do?

00:26:06--> 00:26:43

Why am I children being disrespectful? Why is my wife being disrespectful? They, they start with themselves, because they know that the one who oppresses will never ever succeed. So why am I not succeeding with my writing animal? Why am I not succeeding with my spouse? Why am I not succeeding with my children? Why am I not succeeding with my boss? Why am I not succeeding with my exams? Why am I not exceeding with my studies, start with yourself Charity begins at home. You got to start from within from the call from you from your heart and what you have been doing in terms of your deeds, and then you need to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:26:45--> 00:27:00

And you see Subhanallah things improve and things become better. It's Allah subhanho wa taala, who controls the hearts, the hearts change immediately Subhanallah the difficult animal becomes easy, the difficult spouse becomes easy. The difficult teacher or principal or boss becomes easy.

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

Life changes it becomes easier.

00:27:04--> 00:27:41

People are willing to give you the benefit of the doubt when only moments ago they weren't willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. Salah who controls the hearts you got to ask yourself, Am I oppressing myself and am I oppressing others use of Allah he Salam teaches us a timeless and timely lesson in the whole life for her Collymore Allah says Allah to him met to be she desired him no doubt we notice that Allah subhanho wa Taala says wahama Bihar Lola or Abraham Robbie, there's two types of seeds related to this verse depending on how you read this verse. But I've read it to you upon the way

00:27:43--> 00:28:19

that is suitable for our session and our lessons because we're not going through a Tafseer of Surah Yusuf but rather what we're doing when it comes to Allah Who Barakatuh rather what we're doing is we're extrapolating lessons for the 21st century from sorry, use of this double session. So we will stick to the tafseer that that I'm choosing for our series, and as such, I've read it this way. Well look at the hem Mitsubishi with a pause then we'll have maybe her Lola or Abraham Robbie, meaning she desired him and he would have desired her Had Allah subhanho wa Taala not revealed him the Quran the evidence

00:28:21--> 00:28:21

and this is fine.

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

Why would he have desired her? Because he is a

00:28:27--> 00:29:05

is what he's an angel. He's a man he's a human being. The prophets were human beings. Some people say you know you know what Subhanallah we learn these lessons and we learn about use of it he Salem and we learn and we learn and we learn. But you know what Subhanallah Yousuf was a prophet of Allah. He was the son of a prophet, the son of before he was a prophet, he was the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet. Who am i These lessons are for special people. You know this life? No my dear brother and sustain Islam Allah is revealing well of Serafina via the Quran him in Calimesa Don't be from those forever Coronavirus Illa cavora As we read in the in the tarawih today

00:29:05--> 00:29:25

Subhanallah Surah Tulisa Don't be like them. Allah is revealing to you these examples these stories, these lessons because it matters because it is guidance for you. In it, they are inspirations for you. Because these people are relatable, they are human beings like you, but they chose our way. And you can also choose the way

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

they chose away and they can choose away. If you choose to be sincere, then Allah will choose you and you will be from the chosen ones as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the verses thereafter Subhanallah in who mean a burden and Manasi and then Akira in the whole event, a burden and look, listen. There's two karate there's two recitations of this verse in half son asked him the recitation that we recite more Colossi that indeed use of us from the chosen ones in another Tera in the home in Hebrew.

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

I didn't listen. He was from the sincere once, which teaches us what if you sincere, Allah will choose you. If you sincere Allah will make you from the chosen ones. And when you are from the chosen ones, Allah subhanahu Attallah will give you the Quran, he will give you the guidance that you need to remain guided and it's the test of life.

00:30:19--> 00:30:20

And Mr. Tests of life,

00:30:21--> 00:30:59

especially when you live as a Muslim minority, and you live in a place where people they don't dress in the best of ways, and you're a man Subhanallah and sometimes Subhanallah The dressing is so bad even if you look down it's a fitna Allah who understand because even Subhanallah you understand what I'm saying? The men who are here. It's not about the fitna of looking above even the fitna of looking down where do you look like one brother was telling me the other day? Subhan Allah? He was saying yes, yeah, what do I do? I stopped at the traffic light and there was a lady cyclists in front of me. And she was wearing shorts that was so short. You could you could mistake these shorts

00:30:59--> 00:31:04

for underwear. So he really made me laugh. Allah bless him, and he's in the audience. But inshallah

00:31:06--> 00:31:16

and then he says, I close my eyes, but then the traffic light went green. How old are they level? And they were sounding the horns at the back. I had to drive so I opened my eyes. What do I do here?

00:31:17--> 00:31:24

Look, hola hola Mustang. Hola. Hola, Stan. So this is the environments that sometimes we live in. It's a problem.

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

But what keeps you above the problem?

00:31:28--> 00:31:47

If you sincere with Allah, Allah will choose you and when Allah subhanho wa Taala choose you. He guides your heart, he keeps you strong. He keeps you strong, that your nurses weak, the laughs is weak, the nafs is weak and the desires around you that the desires are within you and the means for the desires are around you. But what keeps you strong?

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

And what saves you from slipping?

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

Is your knowledge of

00:31:53--> 00:32:00

Allah subhanho Atta and I remember we spoke about this on more than one occasion. What is the biggest problem that Omar has today when they fall into sin?

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

Ignorance,

00:32:03--> 00:32:18

the ignorance of who Allah subhanho wa Taala is and what is the antidote? Learn who Allah subhanho wa Taala is the more you learn about Allah proportionately you will be empowered against falling into sin. The less you know about Allah proportionately you will slip into sin.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

That's how it is.

00:32:22--> 00:32:55

And we learn in the Samsara use of here, Allah says We showered upon uses the Quran, why? Because he was chosen. Why was he chosen from another Kira Wheelan? Because he was sincere, he lived his life for the sake of Allah, His breathing was for the sake of Allah, His walking was for the sake of Allah he is talking was for the sake of Allah, when he remained silent, it was for the sake of Allah when he remained stationary, it was for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and everything about him was Rila for the sake of Allah subhana Hua and as if he was a walk, he was an endowment, no one had ownership of him, except Allah subhanahu Ettan everything he did was for the sake of Allah, which

00:32:55--> 00:33:01

means he pleased Allah subhanho wa Taala because you can't do something for the sake of Allah which is haram. Let's be honest.

00:33:02--> 00:33:09

And you can you say, I'm doing this haram for the sake of Allah, I'm going to drink alcohol for the sake of Allah, nobody in their right mind can do this.

00:33:10--> 00:33:48

You can't can never be for the sake of Allah. Because Allah made it haram. Not so. So this is what the Quran is teaching us that when you train yourself to live your life for the sake of Allah, Allah chooses you. And when Allah chooses you, he shows upon you the behind this behind this evidence comes in different shapes in different forms. But no doubt. For the believer. It's like that Allah Places in the Heart, that the heart, just kind of go ahead with it. Because remember, ultimately, the heart is the king of the body. And that in that little gesture, the medulla, indeed, there's nothing about your body except a piece of flesh, either solid, solid, solid, hell just do that. If

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

it's correct, the entire body will be correct.

00:33:53--> 00:34:11

If it's correct, solid, I'll just do Kulu the entire body will be correct. Why they're fascinated, fascinated just to color and if it's corrupt, the entire body will be corrupt. Your hands will be corrupt, your eyes will be corrupt, your tongue will be corrupt. You will swear you love to see things that are haram. You love to touch things that are haram you will still know religiosity we have nothing because you don't have the heart.

00:34:13--> 00:34:49

But when the heart is strong and the heart is alive and the heart is protected, the call will be Salim Ilam. And at Allah have you have been selling as Allah tells us in the Quran that the safety on the day of pm is for the one who comes to Allah with a clean, pure heart. When the heart is clean. When the heart has Allah in it. Then the eyes only want to see that which pleases Allah. The ears only want to listen to that which pleases Allah. The tongue only wants to speak that which is pleasing Allah you cannot speak in about going Subhan Allah, the swearing and vulgarity that we see with our youth today. La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah what Allah He it makes the heart pain.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

It makes the heart pain that we see this in our youth every second word is a swear word. And they treat it as if it's part of language Subhanallah it

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

can't be something so normal except if there's an issue with the image of our children

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

cannot be

00:35:09--> 00:35:21

And subhanAllah sometimes we see the adults justifying it once I was mentioning this in a gathering of adults and they said no she is they don't mean it. They just say it but they don't mean it. The whole hour that word elaborate like that. We have the adults justifying the children's speaking like this.

00:35:23--> 00:35:34

What world do we live in? Sometimes you feel that ilaha illa has stopped the world let me get off. As if the world is a bus and you need to get off the bus Hollis and Hector fate Horace?

00:35:37--> 00:35:46

What madness sometimes do we live in Hola, Han Mustang or Ali hit two clan? Hola. Hola. Quwata illa. You cannot speak a speech that is not from the Sunnah

00:35:47--> 00:36:01

and have Eman at a level that is not worth. Like I said, depending on your level of Eman proportionately you will see the character of a human being that few can swear these words, these bad words.

00:36:02--> 00:36:25

Let's not mention even the letters because we're in the house of Allah subhanho wa taala. And you You say it without any regret, without a twitch being felt in your heart. And Allah He this has to be something wrong with him. And this is my worry. This is my worry that what is the level of the amount of our youth because the speech shows that there's a problem with the levels of iman

00:36:29--> 00:36:52

Allahumma Stein, obviously people are drowning in the sign of the times. Football pundits, they speak like this with this language Subhanallah we see people on TV, and then there's some sports entities that thrive on immorality on naked women and vulgar speech, obscene words and so on and so forth. And I will use i into it, they into it.

00:36:56--> 00:37:28

But that's a topic for another day. Allah subhanahu atta Allah says Allah gave us of the Quran, the scholars of tafsir mentioned different ideas of what this Quran is for Allah who are LM, seemingly, and most plausibly, it's a light that Allah placed in the heart of use of Allah he said, that light that he Places in the Heart noon, Khalifa Allah Have you called bloom in the light that Allah Places in the Heart of a believer that keeps them strong, that even though the opportunities right in front of me, the alcohol is in front of me, nobody has control over me. My parents are not watching me, but you say no, for the sake of Allah, that's for me.

00:37:29--> 00:37:35

That's from Emma, that is from the light of a human. And she's calling him to her with every opportunity,

00:37:36--> 00:37:51

helping him fall into that test in that trial. But he says, Why have Allah that's from Iman, my heart is not allowing my foot to come forward to you. You see, the heart controls the limbs, the heart is not allowing my hand to touch.

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

The heart is not allowing my mind to contemplate this, what you calling me.

00:37:57--> 00:38:04

For two reasons, if we take both of seeds, because Allah is my Lord, and Allah has been good to me,

00:38:05--> 00:38:23

and because your husband is my master, and he was good to me, too. I'd be oppressing myself, and we'd be oppressing him in the whole livelihood. Indeed, those who oppress, they will never ever succeed. My heart is one that is guiding me towards success and succeeding, how can I take the path of failure?

00:38:24--> 00:38:40

Allah subhanho wa taala. then goes on to tell us Subhanallah cada Nikolina Surya for me who sue our fascia, this is how we turn away, this is how we turn away the evil the immorality, the sin, the pitfalls,

00:38:42--> 00:39:09

this how return haram away from who from Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses and Allah chose use of Allah says in the whole minute rebellion Allah McCullough seen in the use of Allah he Salah was from the chosen ones. We will stop here inshallah for today ponder over these thoughts, because a lot of the lessons taken today apply to us squarely and we in the month of Ramadan when the hairpin are chained to Allah gives us it gives us a chance to breathe.

00:39:10--> 00:39:15

Because we're not constantly being attacked by shaper gives us a chance to breathe, so we can contemplate

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

so we can think Subhanallah

00:39:19--> 00:39:34

we can think the Abdullah in the tab, your Corolla in that have the Hubble where am I going with my life? What have I been doing before Amazon? Am I going to be doing the same thing after Ramadan as I've been doing before Ramadan?

00:39:35--> 00:39:46

Why have I been created? What is the purpose of my creation? Why do I exist? Can life just be about eating and drinking and having fun and sleeping and then die? And then what?

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

We believe in life after death, but why do we behave like those who used to say in the name of a routine a harlequin Jedidiah we read it in the in the throwaway are we going to be read

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

erected as a new creation after we turned to bones we know we will be resurrected we believe that we will be resurrected that's why we here we Muslims, but why do we behave like we don't know?

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

This is the month

00:40:15--> 00:40:33

that is the game changer. Somebody mentioned this a game changer area when we were someone here was saying this is the game changer with the chocolates he was distributing. So this chocolates the game changer. Well Ramadan is the game changer. Ramadan is the game changer. And if our game doesn't change, when Ramadan passes,

00:40:35--> 00:40:39

then Allah who understand because remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:40:41--> 00:40:52

when Gibreel came down and made a DUA, about the one who witnesses Ramadan and Ramadan leaves him or her without them being forgiven, and the Buddhist said, may they be distant from Allah meaning may they be cursed and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said me

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

the mercy to the world said I mean to this day

00:40:58--> 00:41:14

why would the mercy to the world say I mean to this, this is destructive? Because the mercy to the world is teaching us that Ramadan is the month Subhana Allah that you will be forgiven. The only one who won't be forgiven is the one who says I don't want to be forgiven.

00:41:17--> 00:41:26

Ramadan is the month of change. The only one who will not change is the one who who puts his hand up and says yeah, Allah I don't want to change.

00:41:28--> 00:41:39

You Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. I mean, hello Allahu allah sallallahu wasallam Obata Canada Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam ala Hiya, Alikum warahmatu wabarakatuh
