00:03:19--> 00:03:23

Kamala Harris made the Peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you.

00:03:25--> 00:03:42

My dear brothers and sisters, all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala who commanded us towards everything that is good for us. And all praises belongs to him for commanding us towards remembering him after we worship Him.

00:03:45--> 00:04:18

For Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah said that either a folk to meet arafat first guru la her in della Sherrill, Haram. Allah subhanho wa Taala after a Muslim spends his or her day worshipping him on the plains of Africa on the day of arafa Allah commands this Muslim after worshiping Allah on Oliver to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala as he makes his or her way to was deliever

00:04:20--> 00:04:20

sugar

00:04:22--> 00:04:45

and Allah subhanho wa Taala lsats and this further substantiates how he's commanded us to remember him after we've worshipped him. He says to panda who atella for either Kobe to masala Tata, first guru, Lucha pm and work udon Allah Juno become. Allah says that when you finish the prayer, when you complete the prayer,

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

when you complete the prayer, then remember Allah subhanho wa Taala while standing and while sitting and whilst on your side's so all praises belongs to Allah.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Anahata Ella for making zeker and the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and rabada an act of worship after an act of worship and all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala as well for commanding us towards Vicar after we work for Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah two Juma Allah subhanho wa Taala says, for either good deity Salatu Fantasia refill our water whom in Formula One guru la kathira, Allah subhanho wa Taala he commands us after the gym our prayer, to

00:05:40--> 00:05:58

march 4 into the world and seek and search for the provisions that Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed. And then Allah says was the coup de la kathira. He commands us towards remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala abundantly.

00:05:59--> 00:06:51

So All praise belongs to Allah from the beginning, and at the beginning, and All praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end, my dear brothers and sisters, the topic that has been asked of me today is an A A, and in particular is number 28. from Surah two right through that era, which is a famous chapter in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In this ayah and I opened this talk with this ayah in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, that it is Allah who guides those who have faith, and whose hearts find peace, in the remembrance of Allah, and truly in the remembrance of Allah. Do the hot find peace? Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah that we love to recite, and we

00:06:51--> 00:07:41

love for the Imam to recite, and we love for other people to recite, even if we don't understand it. This ayah has it resonates with us in this ayah that we love My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that, indeed in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala does this heart become alive? Does this heart become soft? Does this heart find peace? Does this heart find tranquility? Does this heart find contentment? It is very remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala that amplifies all the beautiful qualities of our hearts. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes this manifestly clear in this particular area. And Subhanallah if we just look at how expressive the

00:07:41--> 00:07:46

Quran is, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah didn't say that.

00:07:49--> 00:08:05

In you know, if we look at the makeup of the ayah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says a levena Manu will talk to my inner kulu, whom Allah didn't say a levena Amanullah talk to my inner loop. Allah didn't say that it is you know those who believe

00:08:06--> 00:08:49

the hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah. Because if the ayah was set in this way one could understand from it, that our hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah and in other things which are not the remembrance of Allah. Allah didn't say, Allah Dena Amanullah talked to my English co loop. Allah said 11am and what's up to my new kulu boom. The decree law is the difference for those who understand the language. It is as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that there is no way that your heart can find peace and contentment and tranquility, except through the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there's a difference, you know, between the statement in the remembrance of

00:08:49--> 00:09:30

Allah does your heart find peace, and the statement, your heart will never find peace except in the remembrance of Allah. And I hope you can feel this difference in this rough translation that I've shared. So this ayah truly is amazing and it's manifest, and it substantiates the reality of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala with regards to our hearts and that is why my dear brothers and sisters, it is only the believers who can truly, truly experience happiness in this life. If you understand this area, you will see Subhanallah It is only the believers that it can can experience true happiness. Yes, those who are not from the family of Islam, they say that we are happy, right?

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

They say we are happy, but they only have experienced a portion of happiness. They have not experienced true elation, for Allah tells us that true elation can only come through the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who can truly remember Allah subhanho wa Taala are those who have declared Allah as one and those who have accepted the prophecy of Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why everyone sitting here today from the family of law

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

ilaha illa Allah, you should understand that La Ilaha Illa. Allah has given you a weapon has given you a precedence that those who are not from the family of the Shahada, they don't have you have it, you have the ability to be truly happy. But you have to flick the switch, you have to engage this weapon, you have to activate the precedents that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you you have to understand Vicar and the importance of Vicar and the virtues of Vicar and you need to understand why you should be desperate to be from the believers that remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and when you understand why you should be desperate, then inshallah you will engage this act of worship in a

00:10:43--> 00:11:20

greater way. Bismillah. Today as we move along in sha Allah from this particular platform, I'll try and share with you certain insights regarding Vicar, perhaps it will be an inspiration for you all, especially with the coming of the month of Ramadan. That month, which is a podium and platform for us to launch ourselves from on to newer and better and greater things be at the Lucha Tana, my dear brothers and sisters Vicar, as we have seen, has a mighty podium in Islam, and we are commanded towards it and encouraged to it in many places in the Quran and the Sunnah, right? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah

00:11:23--> 00:12:15

levena Manos guru ah ha the Quran. Kathy was a beehoon book curato Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he commands the believers he says all you who believe. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala abundantly. Now Allah commands us to many acts of worship in the Quran, but it is only with Vicar that he says abundantly remember Allah a lot. Allah says observe the Salah, pay the Zakah but when he talks about Vicar, he says remember Allah a lot and this doesn't mean that Salah is not important because in reality Salah is liquor as well. This doesn't mean the cat is not important because in reality is the cat is thicker as well because it is only done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so really

00:12:15--> 00:13:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala is commanding us to worship him a lot generally, and also specifically to keep our tongues moist with Allah subhanho wa Taala that Salah has its times in the day is the cat has its time in the fasting has its month in the Hajj has its days in your lifetime, but the kicker is not is not compelled to a particular second, or a particular minute, or day or week or month. Oh yeah. It is something that should be with you throughout your life. Thus Allah says, remember Allah abundantly why my dear brothers and sisters, because Allah has blessed us with many, many more minutes than we need to observe a hedge with many, many more minutes than we need to fast the month

00:13:03--> 00:13:43

of Ramadan with many many more minutes than we need to observe the five times daily Salah we know we need one month to live through Ramadan. But Allah keeps us alive for 60 to 70 years on average, as was the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hajj is compulsory once in a lifetime. But we know people who've been alive for so many years and they've done hedge 10s of times panela Salah is compulsory five times a day, but by Allah asked you how many years of your life Have you completed? So Allah gives us many, many more minutes outside these acts of worship. And if we keep those minutes revived, with the remembrance of Allah with the tongue moist, remembering Allah

00:13:43--> 00:14:27

subhanho wa Taala then indeed we are from the successful for some of the reasons I will share just now. That's when Allah says remember Allah He says what guru la kathira Allah subhanho wa Taala he also says in Surah to Zeb was there Corinne Allaha Cathy urine was accurate. Allah mentions the Praiseworthy people and the acts of worship that they do. They are people that pray, there are people that fast, they do so many amazing things, but when he speaks about them and their Vicar, he says there are people who not just remember Allah, but they remember Allah abundantly. This term casier is attached to liquor in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in many places, my dear brothers

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

and sisters, so here we see some kind of law. You know, even in another IRA Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what could Rebecca Kathy run was a big deal actually, you will ibaka that remember your Lord a lot. Remember your Lord abundantly and praise Allah at the beginning of the day and praise Allah at the end of the day. And that is why we know from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to have a duel before sleeping and to have the supplications of the evening and then he would wake up in the morning and the first thing he would do is that

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Read the, for waking up. Eli Lilly ohana remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. And after the fudger prayer, engaging his day with the God and supplications of the morning, this is the command from Allah. And Allah says, and remember your Lord a lot. He doesn't just say and remember your Lord, he says and remember your Lord a lot. My dear brothers and sisters, the fact that Allah time and time again is saying, remember Allah remember Allah remember Allah remember Allah remember Allah Allah after you worship Allah Remember him? After you work remember Allah remember Allah remember Allah subhanaw taala What does this teach us? You know, I was teaching in Dubai yesterday or just the day

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

before about Ramadan, about Ramadan and Subhan Allah Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. But how many times as Allah mentioned Ramadan in the Quran,

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

how many times you can count it on your fingers of one hand?

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

There you go.

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

But how many times as you mentioned tako

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

countless times

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

Mashallah, you have the exact figure

00:16:11--> 00:16:46

from the real life in paying attention, martial lights, very good audience. May Allah bless you all and increase your knowledge. I mean, Allah has mentioned countless times when it comes to the Corolla is mentioning it time and time again. Why does Allah mentioned something so many times? Because it's important, my dear brothers and sisters, you know, you and I, as human beings when we interact with each other, when there's some important matter that we have between us and another human being, we repeat ourselves, right with our children, we time and time again. Did you do your homework? Did you study for your exams? Are you sure you did your homework? Can I check your

00:16:46--> 00:17:23

homework? I want to make sure you did your homework. Did you study for your exams? Come here? I want to test you and make sure Are you absolutely sure? Are you ready for we keep on you know, even the children say oh my parents that singing your song is the exam song with the homework song. They go on and on and on about it. Why do parents go on and on about because it's important? How many times do parents say did you play today? How many times did you play today? Are you sure you played today? You must play today? How many times have the parents do that? Right? But we do it with regards to other things that are important to us. Right? With regards to Ramadan. Ramadan is going to come it

00:17:23--> 00:18:06

is the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and fasting Ramadan will happen because Allah has given us the strength to do so. The reality is it is Allah who blesses us too fast. Ramadan is easy. Fasting is easy, but taco is difficult. So Allah says taco a taco a taco, a taco taco, that let's understand that the essence of your fastest stocker even here My dear brothers and sisters, Allah is Vicar, Vicar, Vicar Why is important, and it's not very easy. And you and I know my dear brothers and sisters, how many how many minutes we spend in traffic and Kuala Lumpur is well known right? For its traffic, how many hours you spent in traffic? And how many what proportion would you say you spent

00:18:06--> 00:18:44

in in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala during that time, sometimes you cooking a meal or you waiting for somebody in the for a meeting. And instead of remembering Allah you humming a tune to some jingle you heard at the supermarket in the morning. Right? Which means what the curry is hot. So Allah says remember Allah and remember him a lot. And after you finish worshiping Him, He says, Remember me again, after you finish on out of the whole day you've been remembering Allah the whole day, you haven't thought of anything else. You saw people worshipping Allah, you are competing with other people to worship Allah. You are in white clothes and feeling sweaty and dusty and

00:18:44--> 00:19:23

humbled. You didn't think about anything you asked and begged and begged Allah. Allah says after that, when you go to Miss deliever remember Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Remember me after we worship him after you pray Salah, remember Allah after you commanded to go and work remember Allah because remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala is hard. So understand that when the Quran commands you to it, and constantly encourages you to understand how important it is my dear brothers and sisters, especially in light of the opening of our discussion, that it is only in the remembrance of Allah that your heart will find peace, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah in the

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

little gesture de moda, that there is nothing about your body except a piece of flesh. If this piece of flesh is wet, is soft, is fresh is pure, your entire body, your entire character, all your actions will be pure. And if it's spoiled, and is rotten, and is hard, then everything about you will be evil, and will be rotten and will be spoiled. And he said Allah indeed this piece of flesh is the heart. So if the heart is the one aspect we have to look after, because the salvation of the IQ, which is your brain, the pq, which is your body

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

The EQ which is your heart, and the Sq, which is your soul, if the salvation of all these entities

00:20:09--> 00:20:48

are based on the correctness of your heart, and Allah tells you that there is no way for your heart except in the remembrance of Allah. It's really appropriate that the shehryar commands us to it time and time again and encourages us towards it time and time again. May Allah make us from those that remember him in earnest. I mean, you're open. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, Vicar is something that was understood by the pious predecessors before us and there's books written on it. In fact, the famous book is a book by Imam Rahim Allah. It's called. In fact, it's an entire book dedicated towards remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's called Allah bill of Sahib meenal

00:20:48--> 00:21:29

Calumet per year. This is a book by Malcolm Rahim online in it, he says, and by the way, it's published in the Arabic language and there's, I came across a translation of of it, I don't know if it's an abridged translation, or if it's a complete translation. I don't have the book. I haven't come across the book physically. But there's a book that's online called invocation of God. And it's, it's It's said to be a translation of a lot of time, Rahim Allah. In this particular book, Ibn Al Karim Rahim Allah, He says that there are over 100 benefits to the this is what he says I wished he listed all of them because from my humble count, I got to about 70 benefits, right? But he said

00:21:29--> 00:22:10

there's over 100 right and no doubt even if you didn't say this over 100 we shouldn't ever feel shy to say yes, we are over 100 we feel bold enough to do so. Because if Allah commands us towards it so many times, there has to be even 1000 benefits, or even more. In this book, he mentions at least 70 from my account for virtues of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously, the scope of this discussion doesn't allow me to go through all of them and the thickness of my voice as well. doesn't allow that but I will share some My dear brothers and sisters so what are the virtues of the card number one, Vicar Vicar assists you against an enemy that Allah told you to take as an enemy.

00:22:11--> 00:22:29

Allah told us that she upon is our enemy, that initial financial incentive to move in that indeed shape on to mankind is a clear enemy. And Allah says in the shape on our do let comfort the hero who I do that indeed shavon is an enemy to you, and Allah commands you to take him as an enemy.

00:22:31--> 00:23:14

So, if you look after Vicar you following another command of Allah, which is to take shape as an enemy Why? Because they could dispel shavon Vicar dispel shavon Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In the levena taco either massamba if Amina shavon, into the Kuru, for either homoserine that indeed, the people of taqwa when the whispers of shavon and the armies of shavon come to them to the Kuru Vicar, they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah for his or her mobis Iran, and as a result, they settle upon the planes of perception, they don't fall prey to the whispers of shavon when they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is from the benefits and virtues of Vicar that it protects you from

00:23:14--> 00:23:58

our clear enemy, the enemy that Allah commanded us to take as an enemy. And Allah says in another surah Shu, undeclared, rushman naka de la who share your partner, for whoever who Corinne, whoever turns away from the remembrance of Allah, the Merciful, we assign an evil one as a comrade and as a companion to that person. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from evil jinn and evil spirits and the evil eye and the plots of magicians mean your umbrella mean, we seek Allah's protection for every second of our life, and during every second of our life against all evil Neruda be Kelly Mattila, he met him in sha Allah, we seek Allah's protection from all evil. So Allah says, Whoever

00:23:58--> 00:24:33

leaves allows remembrance, Allah will leave a evil companion, to surround this person and to be part of this person's life. And if your friend circle is an evil one, then your end will only be an evil one. And that is why Allah commands us in the Quran to have a truthful friend circle for he says, Yeah, you are levena am an otaku la workqueue Masada teen that oh you who believe? Oh you who believe be God conscious of Allah wa kulu Masada clean and have a truthful, righteous friend circle.

00:24:34--> 00:24:54

So the vicar of Allah protects you against a ban. And we know from the remembrance of Allah of those remembrances that are dedicated towards asking a lot to protect us from all evil, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to recite these are every morning and every evening and some of them after every dollar from ayatul kursi to

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

the Colorado bureau bill Falak to Colorado bureau of business

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

Bismillah he let

00:25:02--> 00:25:37

me show you fell out of the water this summer. Well, who was semi early? Now? From from the outside we can imagine later mattamy shall be Maha Illa headed towards. I mean, there's so many as God taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with regards to this. So the first virtue of wicker is protection from this shavon that doesn't want any good for us only wants to harm us. In fact, in the next surah of the pseudo Torah, we have Surat Ibrahim, and in Surat Ibrahim Subhan. Allah, Allah just made me remember this right now. So Han Allah insertive Rahim, Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah says,

00:25:39--> 00:26:26

tells us about a conversation that will happen between shavon and the people who have been destined for Johanna mala makuti el amor, when this when everything has been decreed, and the people of Jenna decided and the people of Johanna decided, she upon will say, in the la vida, kumada Huck were to come to come, that Indeed Allah He made a true covenant with you, and he shared with you a true promise. And I also gave you my covenant and my promise, and you went against the commander of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Ladies you who left the true covenant, then he says, family or family and he goes, I never ever I never had any controlling facility over you except the facility Illa and

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

Darrell to confess the job to me, except the facility to whisper to you to do bad things. And you answered my whispers for lateral Mooney, Waterloo and Fisher comm so don't blame me, but blame yourself. This is what Shane will see on the day of the AMA. So many signs in the Quran to take chiffon as an enemy in the shape Allah, Allah Kumar do one factor huizhou I do that indeed, shavon to you is an enemy that take him as an enemy May Allah protect us from shame on me. So from the virtues of the committee, our brothers and sisters,

00:26:58--> 00:27:42

is protection from shame upon number one, number two, from the virtues of Vicar is that Vicar is a cure to the believers and a mercy for the believers for Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when necessary luminol for any man who has suffered or meaning, and we have revealed from the Quran, that which is a cure and the mercy to the believers, to the believers, to those who have declared Allah as one and those who have accepted the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so Allah, Allah says in the Quran is a cure and the mercy and no doubt my dear brothers and sisters, the best Vicar is the recitation of the Quran. And we find this in the Sharia, that the best Vicar after the Quran is

00:27:42--> 00:28:28

La ilaha illAllah de la sharika in a hurry, that the best speaker after the Quran, which means what? That the best speaker is what the Quran so the Quran is thicker as well. And Allah tells us in many ayat teaches us that the Quran is the for example, Allah says in an afternoon azana vichara we're in Allahu Allah have known that It is we who have revealed the vicar meaning the Quran, and we will protect it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, women are other and victory for in Allah who marisha Tom banca The one who turns away from the vicar Vicar here means the Quran. So from the names of the Quran is a vicar because no doubt it is the best of the remembrance of Allah subhanho

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

wa Taala Allah, Allah is the one who turns away from the vicar, then for this person is a depressed life, a life which is narrow and restricted and filled with sorrow and sadness. When I showed up, I'm at the AMA, and on the day of the AMA, Allah will raise this person blind May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so the Quran is thicker. And Allah says that this liqueur is a cure and mercy for the believers. So from the virtues of Vicar, my dear brothers and sisters is to receive the mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to receive this cure the cure for our hearts and the cure for our ailments, we know that the Quran is used to dispel black magic, the Quran is used to dispel evil

00:29:10--> 00:29:55

eye. The Quran is used to dispel other sicknesses as well. The Quran is indeed a cure. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us to remember him in earnest I mean, the third virtue that I want to share with you regarding Vicar is that Vicar are your plantations in general, Vicar is your opportunity to plant as many trees in your agenda before you pass away? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that vichar are the seedlings of your gentleness and the hadith of jabber, jabber even Abdullah Ravi Allahu Allah. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mancala sapan Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Hill alvim will be handy. Whoever says this Vicar Subhana Allah

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Allah Allah will be handy. This is a seedling for him in his gender, Allah

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Plants trees for you date trees and all the best trees trees that you've never seen and never heard of never dreamt of. Allah plants them for you in your agenda. So how many trees do you want to have in general? Right? Is the decision is up to you?

00:30:14--> 00:30:55

Right reward is proportionate to effort. Al Jazeera Wilmington Sillerman reward is proportionate to effort. If you remember how much you will have the greater gardens and the bigger gardens in general, may Allah bless us with the biggest and best gardens in genma mean from the virtues of the Quran. My dear brothers and sisters, and this is the fourth virtue for today is that Vicar alleviates difficulty and anxiety and we know that we live in an age of my dear brothers and sisters whereby we you know, we are afflicted by things, you know, the depressions, anxiety, sorrow, difficulties, and so on and so forth. Right from the virtues of liquor is that Vicar helps and

00:30:55--> 00:31:38

assist us in ridding ourselves of these anxieties and sorrows. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in soda to soft fat and other places in his book, he says about us early his Salam falola and know who can Amina must have been that if it wasn't that he was from amongst those that praised Allah subhanho wa Taala and Glorified Allah subhanho wa Taala, he would have remained in the belly of the whale until the day of judgment and the Day of Resurrection. So he was the one who in that difficulty, he constantly remembered Allah subhanho wa Taala, saying La Ilaha Illa and so panikkar in the country, Nevada mean, he remembered Allah subhanho wa Taala he remembered Allah abundantly,

00:31:38--> 00:31:58

and thus it was a means of Allah subhanho wa Taala saving him. So this is from the virtues of Vicar from the virtues of Vicar and this is the fifth fifth virtue for this particular setting. Is that my dear brothers and sisters, it is a means to attain the bounties of this life for Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah know

00:31:59--> 00:32:11

about the data of new alayhis salam, and that Noah said to his people, for call to stop Pharaoh back home in the who can have a fairer usually summer or la comida or indeed can be Mr.

00:32:12--> 00:32:54

gela come Jeanette, or angelicum and Hara, Allah says, tells us about the data of new and new said to us people that remember Allah seek forgiveness from Allah and if you do so Allah will sit down upon you abundant rain from the skies for you, and He will provide for you wealth, abundant wealth, and he will provide for your children and he will provide for you gardens and rivers so panela So, from the virtues of victory, my dear brothers and sisters is that Vicar is a means for us to attain for us to attain the mighty blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has in store for us for those who live the life of this world. The sixth virtue of the Quran, my dear brothers and sisters, is that

00:32:54--> 00:32:58

Vicar is a means of being forgiven. And it is a means for us to attain

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

abundant rewards it is a means for us to be forgiven and attain abundant rewards. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book regarding this point with Valkyrie Nala Kathy euro was accurate at the law hula mahira Lima, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that those who remember Allah abundantly from the males and the females, then Allah has prepared for these people, a great forgiveness and a great reward, a mighty reward. These are from the virtues of Vicar. One other virtue we can share my dear brothers and sisters, is that from the virtues of Vicar is that it protects you from hypocrisy and it protects you from loss for Allah subhanho aterna says, Yeah, you have levena Amman led to leikam

00:33:48--> 00:34:37

and welcome to come and de la delic for Allah ecoman Casa rune, Allah says, Oh you who believe, do not let your wealth and your children distract you from the remembrance of Allah. Do not let the life of this world distract you from the remembrance of Allah and whoever does so, then this, that person will be at a loss that person will be from the losers. So, the opposite of it teaches us that if we do not allow the life of this world, to take us away from the remembrance of Allah, then it we will be protected from hypocrisy and we will be protected from loss. And the reason why I say hypocrisy is because this area is from a surah dedicated towards discussing the hypocrites the

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

hypocrites of Medina May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from hypocrisy. I hope from these virtues My dear brothers and sisters, you can appreciate our earlier discussion about how Allah commands us towards Vicar after arafa and commands us towards Vicar after salah and commands us towards Vicar, when he commands us towards working and so on and so forth. You can understand why a lot of time and time

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

Again, speaks about Vicar encourages us towards liquor, and so on and so forth. So these are just some of the virtues of liquor and we ask Allah to make us from the vacuum. I mean, you're open. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, I said to you earlier, that in Surah Surah, Allah didn't say, a levena am an otaku my envelope loop. Allah didn't say that those who believe and remember Allah, Allah didn't say that rather he said, a levena Amano in new

00:35:30--> 00:35:44

Eva was the ayah Allah Vina Amma tautomer, in Maluku, basically LA, right, Allah. He didn't say that for those who believe and remember Allah, he said, for those who believe and practice this practice

00:35:46--> 00:36:20

that can assist your heart like nothing else can remember that discussion. Allah is not telling us that your heart will be revived with liquor and other than the Corolla is telling us in this ayah that there is nothing else that can help your heart besides liquor. And we spoke about the importance of the heart and why we need to look after this heart with liquor because Allah has told us that nothing will assist your heart besides the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, before I end up my dear brothers and sisters, Ramadan is coming and just to be true to the theme of this particular conference.

00:36:22--> 00:37:04

Because it's dedicated towards preparing us for Ramadan, and no doubt Ramadan is a springboard to launch ourselves from right. And we must make an intention to be from the vacuum in Ramadan, and for the remainder of our lives and use Ramadan to launch ourselves onto the podium of those that are considered to be from the vacuum. So before we end, I just want to share with you some action points that lie to Allah you can consider action points forum have on and attached to the code that perhaps you can consider to be part of your Ramadan, this Ramadan be related, I'm just going to share three number one, number one, make a severe and serious attempt

00:37:06--> 00:37:27

to be from the family of alkaline because Ramadan is the month of alcohol and we just discussed earlier how the best Vicar is the recitation of the Quran and how Allah subhanho wa Taala has named the Quran Vicar as well, right? In Nana Hana, zelner, vichara, woman, Aurora and Vickery. Right these ayat in which Allah refers to the Quran

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

using this template

00:37:31--> 00:37:38

so make sure this Ramadan, you use the month of Al Quran to be even more diligent with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:37:39--> 00:37:47

And I'm not asking you to burn yourselves out, but I'm telling you to strategize and put a good plan in place by which you will burn yourself in.

00:37:49--> 00:38:06

Right, and I mentioned this to our brothers and sisters in Dubai yesterday. Because what happens is a lot of times we see people who are so gassed up before Ramadan comes, they're so excited. So I'm gonna read the whole juice every day in Oman. And you say, brother, how many pages of the Quran Do you read now?

00:38:07--> 00:38:43

And he will probably scratch his head because he doesn't have an answer to that particular question. So don't live in the dream world live in the real world. Right? So be from the family of Al Quran, but strategized, well strategize well. So you burn yourself in it's not a case whereby you start doing one juice. And by the third or fourth day in Ramadan, you lose steam, and then a week or two goes and you haven't opened the Quran, and then you fall into regret. And then you pick yourself up because now the last 10 days of nights of Ramadan are coming and you say, you know what, in the last 10 nights, I'm gonna read one juice every day. Now. Learn from your past mistakes, put a good plan

00:38:43--> 00:39:21

in place where you burn yourself in, maybe start with a quarter might take you a good few days to get used to it. If you're good with a quarter now increase it to a half. Try it out. If it's too much, to a quarter and a quarter of a half. When you get used to it, take on another quarter make it to two quarters so you're doing half mergers, right? And maybe perhaps by the end of Ramadan, you now have burnt yourself in and trained yourself to read a juice a day and this is a beautiful thing. If you are able to complete the Quran every 30 days. This is a wonderful thing for you my dear brothers and sisters. And as such you will enjoy the virtues that we've shed. So make a plan this

00:39:21--> 00:39:43

Ramadan to be from the family of Ramadan after Ramadan because remember, the Lord of Ramadan is the Lord of the other months of the year. And unfortunately we also have this bad habit where we worship online Ramadan and then after Ramadan, we say to do VEDA Now we take five or six days holiday from worshiping Allah and then we never get back into things I love understand. So do not be deceived by shavon.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

So that's number one. Number two. Look after Juma

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

Why am I saying look after Juma and what's his relationship to liquor? Well, earlier I told you that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah to Juma Yeah, you have levena Amano is a new day.

00:40:00--> 00:40:32

Sala Meeow meeow Juma feser Isla de la he was a real bear Valley come highroller come in kuntum tanaman Allah subhanho wa Taala says that oh you who believe when the call to Salatu Juma arrives on the day of Juma, then leave everything and make your way to the vicar of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala call Salatu Juma Vicar. He named it Vicar. So from the names of Joomla and so that the Joomla is the so this Ramadan, revive your Fridays and put a plan to make your Fridays.

00:40:34--> 00:40:44

Even better than the Fridays you've practiced before. Right? put a plan in place because Ramadan is the day of read in the week of a believer in the hadith of

00:40:46--> 00:40:58

Abu huraira robiola who is a Muslim and a Muslim he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Allah He shuns Yama Juma Mora Fie he was he

00:40:59--> 00:41:39

was he Orisha minha vida de como ser Illa. Fiamma Juma. He says the best day upon which the sunrises is the day of Joomla. On this day, Allah created Adam, and on this day Allah entered him into paradise. And on this day, Allah removed him from Paradise, and the coming of the hour will not happen except on a Friday, except on the day of Joomla. Right. So since we're talking about Vicar, and we're talking about Ramadan, I know you have your action points, I'm going to throw in three more, if it hasn't been if it's part of your plan. Alhamdulillah if not think about it. Right, in terms of taking action points from this topic on Vicar, and this is number 28 from Surah two, right?

00:41:39--> 00:41:51

Try and revive your Friday. Make sure you increase your salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he told us that Allah presents our salutations to him.

00:41:52--> 00:42:33

Right? How embarrassing is it that from the above the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are those who are presenting hundreds of 1000s of salutations and you are coming with one or two or 10 or zero, right. So think about this, that this day, attach yourself to the sooner in a in an even greater way. And also remember that you will benefit and you will be rewarded because he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam monks Allah Allah Salatin, wahiduddin sallallahu alayhi, Ashura, that whoever sends one salutation upon me, then Allah will do the same upon him times 10 so we only stand to benefit My dear brothers and sisters, so increase your salutations. Don't forget to decide Surah

00:42:33--> 00:43:14

tcaf make sure it's part and parcel of your Fridays this Ramadan and continued after Ramadan. This great virtues in the recitation of Soraka have in your week. Also look after the etiquettes of Friday. All the etiquettes taught to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and don't be from those people who disregard a Sunnah only because it should not be like the Sahaba who practice the Sunnah because it was a Sunnah, right? So look after the etiquettes in terms of your bathing your dressing, how you smell how you make your way to the masjid go to the masjid early. We know that the one who goes in the first hour he gets the rewards of giving a camel for the sake of Allah and no

00:43:14--> 00:43:31

one who goes in the second hour gets the reward of giving a cow and no one who goes into third gets the reward of giving a sheep and the one who goes into fourth gets the reward of giving a chicken and then an egg. You want to make sure you're giving the most to Allah subhanho wa Taala so revive these etickets the etiquettes

00:43:32--> 00:43:37

pertaining to the date of Juma also my dear brothers and sisters look after that special.

00:43:38--> 00:44:18

The Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us on a Friday he said there's an hour in which if I believe he raises his hand his daughter will never go rejected and the scholars have explained this hour to be the last hour on a Friday. Revive that hour by raising your hands and begging Allah subhanho wa Taala and asking from Allah subhanho wa Taala so that's point number two we said number one, be from the family of Al Quran. Number two, be from the family of Juma number three seek knowledge and attach yourself My dear brothers and sisters to the people of knowledge. Why my dear brothers and sisters and what's his relevance to our discussion on Vicar? Well, Allah subhanho wa

00:44:18--> 00:44:30

Taala says, women are selling them in public Illa Allah knew he lay him first Allah, Allah Vickery in controllata and Amman. Allah says that we have sent

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

messages messengers are before you or we have not sent messages before you except men that revelation came to. And then Allah addresses essences. First Allah Allah Vicar asked the people of knowledge if you don't know and Allah calls them the people of the people of the car. They are the people of knowledge. So as an action point in your attachment to the car, from this Rama van, attach yourself to the scholars, right and these scholars are the people

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

Hold the revelation of the MBR the inheritance of the MBR. And he was Salatu was Salam for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if my memory serves me, right, this is the hadith of a Buddha. If I forgotten them, Allah forgives me. He says

00:45:17--> 00:45:22

in the water to lambier why in MBA lm you are ready to dinner and voila, Durham and

00:45:23--> 00:45:47

that, indeed the scholars are, they are the inheritors of the profits. And the profits never left behind gold and silver coins Rather, they left behind beneficial knowledge. And that is why when, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, a boo hora hora de la hora. And he went to the marketplace. And he said woe to you traders, the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:45:50--> 00:46:27

the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being distributed in his Masjid. And you guys are here. So they close their stalls and Russia domestic. And when they went there, they didn't see any money being distributed. Rather they saw circles of knowledge circles of students learning with the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So they said Where Where is the distribution? He said to them again woe unto you can you not see the cycles of knowledge here, this is where the distribution of the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam happens attach yourself to knowledge. Knowledge protects you my dear brothers and sisters, but wealth you

00:46:27--> 00:47:11

have to protect and when you spend your wealth decreases, unless you spend it for the sake of Allah. But if you spend knowledge and teach it to other people, it increases. Knowledge is a mighty wealth that you need to have. And in looking at this topic of Vicar, as an action point, this Ramadan attach yourself to the scholars and increase your knowledge and Allah will make your path to gender easier when silica Maria Can you tell me Sufi hilman Sahel Allahu Allahu Allah Jana, that whoever treads a path seeking Islamic knowledge Allah will make his or her path to Gemma easy. Allah says also in Surah Furqan ffes Lb hubiera. Right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here again teaches us that

00:47:11--> 00:47:15

the scholars they are the people of Vicar, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:47:17--> 00:48:02

and my dear elders, brothers and friends, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from the family of Vicar, and to make us truly intelligent. For Indeed Allah has described the family of Vicar as the intelligent ones, it is Allah who says, Allah vnaf guru and Allah pm and Allah says in the view Hulk is somehow it will are the fourth juice just before the last quarter. In the view Hulk is somehow it was a lovely lady when her little Al Bab. Allah says indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth and in the differences of the night and the day, the there are signs for the intelligent ones who are these intelligent ones here Allah Allah says, loving is guru.

00:48:07--> 00:48:09

Juno be him.

00:48:10--> 00:48:12

Karuna v.

00:48:15--> 00:48:38

Allah says they are those who remember Allah pm and while standing while cruising while sitting while as you know be him while laying these are the intelligent ones. May Allah make us from the intelligent people My dear brothers and sisters, I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, Allah says in his book well as equal Allahu Akbar, Allah says Rama Oh hiya la camino que tabula Aki masala

00:48:39--> 00:49:23

This is Surah two ankle boots insha Allah autonoma de la cabanel keytab rocky masala inna sala de tener un fascia evil Moncure while Avi Chroma he Akbar, Allahu Akbar, that the remembrance of Allah is great, the scholars have to say that this ayah whether the Kula he occupied or this portion teaches us that the vicar in your Salah is the greatest part of your Salah, the recitation of the Quran and the remembrance of Allah and other scholars of the sea, they have added to this and they have said that Allah is saying that Allah not neglecting you, because you have remembered him is better for you than your remembrance of him. And this is a fact because Allah tells us about those

00:49:23--> 00:49:59

natural law for whom and fusa whom Allah tells us about those who forgot about Allah. They never remembered Allah, so Allah left them to be Allah left them to be which means what if you remember Allah, Allah will always be with you, and He will not leave you to be and this is better for you than your remembrance of Allah well as equal Allahu Akbar, Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the family of last but not least, my dear brothers and sisters, just to put some competition here because Allah ends the ayah by saying Allah basically law he talked to my local lube and we started speaking about the heart

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

to end it off, let's talk about the heart very quickly. Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us in, in his book that nothing waters the heart and nothing softens the heart and nothing blesses the heart besides the remembrance of Allah in Surah towheaded Allah says, Allah nealon levy and Joshua kulu boom de la li la semana de la mina. Allah says has a time not come. lm el de la Vina mano, as a time not come for you open Eva has a time not come for the believers and Tasha Lupo home, for the hearts to be in awe of Allah, for the hearts to have this, this fear with respect of Allah, for the hearts to be in all of Allah. Because of this revelation, this Vicar this remembrance of Allah and this

00:50:50--> 00:51:10

revelation that Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent has a time not come for your hearts to be awakened. And then Allah says oil a coup de la Vina Oh kita Corbin, Allah says and do not be like the people before you do not be like them for their rla

00:51:12--> 00:51:31

they became victims of time they became attached to the, to the deceptive life of this world. They forgot about the hereafter. They began living life till the grave and not till beyond the grave. Focus at school, oh, boom. And the net result of that was that their hearts became hardened workers he runs

00:51:33--> 00:51:33

fast.

00:51:34--> 00:52:14

And when your heart becomes hardened, you will become a center that most of them are sinners. There's nothing worse than up within a heart heart. My dear brothers and sisters, protect us from these hearts. There's nothing worse than it is to Bukhara Allah tells us. This you know about, about the hearts of those before that Allah is talking about in this ayah right? Allah tells us about them. Allah says, from Mikasa Kuru bukem then your hearts became hard for ijarah it was like a stone. Allah says Oh, cassava. It was harder than a stone because there's nothing worse and harder than a hard heart. You get benefit from a hard rock but you won't get benefit from a hard heart.

00:52:14--> 00:52:29

Allah describes for us rocks in the Quran. Allah says we're in the middle he Geraghty lemma for German Hill and how we're in Amina lemma Shaku German hula, we're in Amida lemma bitumen hace la Allahu

00:52:30--> 00:53:15

Allah says, And as for rocks, they are rocks from which streams spring out, they benefit you. And from rocks are those rocks which water comes out when they are split open, they benefit you and from rocks are those rocks that you see flowing down, rolling down the hills out of the fear and out of being in all of Allah subhanho wa Taala La ilaha illa Allah and Allah says from Allah, he'll be laughing and I'm not alone. And Allah is not unaware of that which you do. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Aspire, make us people who are who aspire to inspire to be inspirational to ourselves and other people. I mean, May Allah forgive our past and bless our futures. Indeed we have been.

00:53:17--> 00:53:32

We've lacked diligence with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for blessing us to have this discussion. We asked we thank Allah for blessing us to have this discussion. It is a mercy from Allah, that this discussion can happen

00:53:33--> 00:53:44

and thus we don't become sad. Rather, we tend to Iraq man or Rahim, the most forgiving, the Most Merciful, who will forgive everything and anything as long as we tend to him before we die.

00:53:45--> 00:54:06

Yamuna Adam no Bella Kaduna. buka and any summer from istockphoto de la foto Haleakala Valley, Allah says Oh son of Adam, if you send and send that your sins reached the clouds, the surfaces of the skies from Mr. martelly. When you turn to align sought forgiveness from Allah. Allah Allah Oh barely, I will forgive your sins for you and it won't matter to me.

00:54:07--> 00:54:46

hamdulillah we tend to align We ask Allah to forgive our past. In fact, we ask Allah to reward us as if we spent our past remembering him Allah, it's easy for Allah to give us it's easy for Allah to give us and we ask Allah from now, to assist us to be able to give due diligence to this concept of Vicar and remembering him and ask Allah to protect our hearts. May Allah bless us or bless us with good health, blesses Ramadan and make this Ramadan, our best Ramadan. And may Allah bless us with many, many more events after this. May Allah guide us in genda with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I told you when I got off the plane just before this talk, I lost my voice. And the brothers

00:54:46--> 00:55:00

were saying should we cancel? and I said you know what? Just give me some honey because Allah said it's secure. And when I say no matter who is there, you know, when I say we praise Allah, and we seek his assistance, Allah will give me enough voice to continue hamdulillah

00:55:00--> 00:55:11

I think you all had what I had to say the vanilla. I love you all for the sake of Allah My dear brothers and sisters. Remember when you're doing as well as Allah Selim obata, Canada, Vienna Mohammed whether it was in the Santa Monica Monica De La Habra.
