00:00:02--> 00:00:13

Universal greeting of Islam Salam aleikum to all our brothers and sisters who have just logged in and are joining us on the second session with myself and

00:00:15--> 00:01:07

sees the Saturday of the month of Ramadan and we are discussing at tenable murase abstinence from the forbidden from the writings and the works of Mohammed vasarely Rahim Allah. So last week we did an introduction we did an introduction and we spoke about the fact that it's imperative that we endeavor to abstain from sin and law What are I can coffee there is no act of piety greater than abstinence from sin. And we explain that as much as the performance of optional actions is great is noble is wonderful. But more importantly, more importantly, is abstaining from sin, and how our spree disasters would preserve all the limbs and organs of the body from every act of sin, etc. And

00:01:07--> 00:01:29

we concluded on the fact that just to recap Wakanda to Allah Illuminati mana for him what you can leave Mona at him with a shadow juubi McCann waxy bone, wherein Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks and it's a verse we recite in the chapter of yacine so daily and often when Allah says a Leone today referring to the day of the Yama

00:01:30--> 00:02:15

and we often speak about tomorrow right tomorrow you'll see this tomorrow we'll meet up Allah reminds us of the real tomorrow. Yeah, you have Latina de la Are you believe fear Allah Waltons or nevsun, Malka? Demet Li Raj. And let every soul reflect on what he or she has prepared so sold in Arabic knifes is used as a feminine expression hence the adoption of Welton door which is a feminine expression well it turns out enough so maka d'amato Li Raj. Let each soul reflect over what it has sent forth for tomorrow. And yet again in the 27 Jews Allah says say Allah Muna rather than many people actually tomorrow Tomorrow you will know who is the lion who's the arrogant one.

00:02:16--> 00:03:01

So anyway, Allah says on the day of the AMA, the mouse will be sealed what you can leave Muna ad him and the lungs and the organs of the body will speak out it will speak out, because these are the cameras of the Almighty so there's no get away because the very limbs and the organs which are part of the human anatomy through which unfortunately, we perpetrate crimes, are the very agents of the Almighty or the agents of the Almighty, which give evidence and testimony against an individual. What does shadow Ira julu home Bhima New York Cebu and the legs are Joe the plural of regional will give evidence against them. For the Jimmy I bet the Nick wahoo Susan Alba kasturba and we spoke

00:03:01--> 00:03:34

about this here with Mr. Posada Rahim, Allah said, that endeavor to protect every limb and every organ of your body from the disobedience of Allah and more specifically seven for India. Johanna mala has a back to Bob. So Jonathan has seven doors and he makes a very delicate correlation. And again, I have a flash of a verse of the Quran and I credit this to the Almighty, that whenever I speak a lot of allowance for different thoughts and reflections and the research which I had done, you know, to

00:03:35--> 00:04:00

present at the opportune time. So, in Surah muda Thiele in Surah madatha Allah subhanho wa Taala says Elaine, artist writer, I saw that there are 19 angels, they are 19 angels Yala speaks about seven doors and Emma Masada Angola says protect seven organs right and he creates a very delicate correlation with in.

00:04:02--> 00:04:29

So in Surah modesitt, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that there are 19 angels in charge of health. So the chief Angel of Hell is Malik Yamani, Kalia, in our book, where the occupants of hell will say to Allah, or say to Malik, that oh Malik asked your Lord to pronounce death upon us. Ask your Lord to pronounce death upon us, but obviously, led him to Where are you?

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

Bihar, in the 22nd Jews in Surah family Allah says that death will not be pronounced upon them, nor will there be a reduction nor will there be a reduction of any torment. For whom your study hona fee Ha. So in this verse, Allah says that there are 19 angels in charge, and intercede as easy intercede as easy. There's a great academic write up. And for those that are listening that are scholars, I'm just sharing

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

You can you can read on to it that why has alarm kept 19 angels number one Allah says the reason why it's 19 it's in the Quran is this this is the test and a time because the the disbelievers set the Y 1919 in such an odd number of such an odd number, couldn't you round it off to 20 so Allah said Rama john Harbin de la mala aka mama john.

00:05:27--> 00:06:20

Natalie Nadine cafaro, we have made the angels and the custodians of how to be angels number one angels, right? Because Abu Jamal made a remark and this is captured in my daddy cotton zeal, where he said, Oh 19 Okay, I'm strong, I will grab few, I will throw a few I will apprehend the others. And then once we get hold of 19, we'll tell the other you know people to just just bypass them and go into paradise. So we will intercept the angels that are in charge of how this was the you know, the arrogance and the shenanigans and the absurd and bizarre and ludicrous comments and the remarks of the arrogant Buddha, Allah He made the curse of Allah be upon him. So Allah responded by saying

00:06:20--> 00:07:04

that these are not 19 humans These are 19 angels one is enough to flatten you one is enough to wipe you out. I didn't have a cotton shader done in the 20 instead of two hareem Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the angels in charge, they are the lone Cheetah, the venerable aquantia they are robust, they are strong, they are mighty, so 19 angels in charge and then there is this whole explanation that in essence, if you need it breaks down into 19 different commandments of the Almighty 19 so of course we have the five pillars of Islam etc. But if you further break it out in the whole academic writer is interpreted as easy. I'm just giving a rough print and I have a picture of it on the

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

number so I'm just sharing it with those that

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

you know man shot I mean, come on you are as the scholars would say those who want to probe it and read it and inquiry about it. Please go into it and you'll find it amazing, riveting captivating 19 different injunctions and ends 19 angels. So yeah.

00:07:24--> 00:07:28

reminds us of the seven days of hell when

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

a Barbie indominus Allahu

00:07:32--> 00:08:27

Akbar, and those doors of hell will be reserved for those who have disobeyed Allah through these seven different organs. And what are the seven organs amongst other limbs and organs of the body were he aligned with ozone? Well, the sun will button will follow Julia to a region, essentially the eye, the ear, the tongue, the belly, the abdomen, the private organs, the hand and the leg. And then he opens it up in great detail and the line for in the Honda catolica Lita de Bihar filament so with regards to the eye, right? I read an article in an in flight magazine on a particular flight. And in that I read that scientists say that after the human brain, the second can complex organ in the body

00:08:27--> 00:08:48

is so the brain is the most complex and most organ that ally has created in terms of its functionality. I am no neurosurgeon, or no neurologists. But of course, this is what we pick up from medical science. And the second most amazing and complex organ and limb in the body is the eye.

00:08:49--> 00:09:44

So for him, the Haleakala Kalitta D behalf is the primary aim and object of this is that you can spot you can see you can observe you can navigate you can walk through etc. What does that mean that behalf in hideout and it is an aid and an assistant at the time of need, somebody who's visually impaired becomes dependent and visually impaired person is dependent on a sighted person or is dependent on a you know, some form of aid or by virtue of this i by virtue of this I it is such a great sense of ease and comfort. Once I was visiting a neighboring African country and again you know, Allah kindness this incident refreshes at my mind at this moment. So I was in Bulawayo to be

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

precise in Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, and I conducted a talk and at night they had arranged a barbecue with the entire community and prominent members of the community were there as well. So a brother narrated an incident to me. He said that the

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

Some Muslim doctors Masha Allah, that they went into the rural part of the country and they perform some surgery, they perform some iron surgery etc. So that at times they'll have some into the dental field dentists, orthodontists, oral hygiene and they'll go and do some basic cleaning. And, you know, just just put in some fillings, etc. to give some quality of life to people. At times you'll have an optician and an optometrist. At times, you'll have an ophthalmologist that will go in and do some basic surgery. So there were few people that needed cataract procedures, cataract procedures, but due to lack of resources, lack of funds, lack, didn't have access to facility, etc. Their vision

00:10:46--> 00:11:11

deteriorated. And he said to me, this was such an emotional moment. It was such an emotional moment that we perform the surgery with the mobile mobile clinics that we had the mobile clinics, we performed the surgery on the elderly old woman who's living in the rural area of the country with her children and grandchildren, and often with a great grandchildren.

00:11:12--> 00:12:04

and prove to the jury, her vision was restored. And now suddenly, the old lady could put a face to the voice of her grandchild. He said to me, Chef, Mr. Mustafa, by Allah, I have never witnessed something more emotional in my life, to see how the vision is restored. And suddenly this woman is now seen a face to the voice. La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illAllah. A woman in America was once asked if they are mighty has to restore your vision. She had sight subsequently, vision deteriorate deteriorated, and she lost her vision. So she was asked if they are mighty has to restore your vision for a moment. What would you like to see? What a difficult question what a difficult

00:12:04--> 00:12:51

question, someone was honestly sighted subsequent subsequently visually visually impaired. And now the question being asked, you are given one moment with your vision restored? What would you like to see? La ilaha illAllah. The woman said, I would love to see a child smile. I would love to see a child smile. So my brother, my sister, this now of the iron that Allah has given us and the kindness of Allah is we don't pay anything, we don't pay a monthly bill. Right? If you don't pay your electricity bill, then your your, your you know, facility will be cut off, you'll be denied access, there'll be complications, there'll be a procedure etc. Why because there is a monthly utility bill

00:12:51--> 00:13:14

that is generated for the electricity that you use and you need to pay for it. This light and this vision that Allah subhanho wa Taala has endowed us with it, only to know unfortunately that we abuse it in Surah Yaseen, Allah says willona Sha, Allah Allah uni him while own Nasha Ola for mesna Allah uni him First Baptist

00:13:16--> 00:13:58

University road. So I often say to people when I'm reading and I'm quoting, read the verse open diversity, the translation so that you can have added conviction to the verse I'm sorry I've seen so I guess everybody knows it. Well no. And if Nasha we desire love, must not love certainly permanecer we can open letter rage we can wipe out we can he lay his love for Muslim Allah Allah uni him. We can obliterate the vision. So when they abuse it, we have the absolute power and ability just just wipe it out just blind them while I wanna sha Allah Thomas na Allah uni, him festa Baku, Sierra

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

Leone, how will they then possibly see how will they then?

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

Are they going to see? We can do division one I wanna show Oh la, la la la, la, la myself now one McKenna team.

00:14:15--> 00:14:38

Allah. Then Allah says, and if we wish, well, no, and if not, shall we wish law certainly must suffer now whom we can disfigure them, we can change their appearance must suffer in Arabic means to disfigure to change your appearance, from a human to reduce you to another form or another creation

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

from us

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

and that also the scholars say to change you into another form and in a paraplegic state. So just not to reduce you or change you into another creation of form but that also in a state where you are dependent you

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

are not able you are paraplegic for mustapa mobian whether your own they will be unable to infer no return. Now, you know, Quran just baffles me. I was just giving some advice to some friends now and they were asking me some to share with them some light on the verses that were recited today in the Pahlavi Jews, and I was just sharing some reflections with them as well. So, when Allah sounds this warning that Allah can, this few humans might think, and this is the logical mind, well, that's a bit strange. That's a bit remote. That's unheard of never heard you went to sleep as a human and got up as an alien. Right? That's how we think that's how we think. And I'm tying it up with the next

00:15:52--> 00:16:09

verse And I'll tell you what's written in the Tafseer. And this is not a shot in the dark and there's not a thumbs up. This is written in the tafasitamab you know, Allah just put these thoughts in my mind. Oh, Allah says a woman No, I'm Mira. Whoa, the next verse. Woman No, I'm Mira Whoa.

00:16:12--> 00:16:57

Woman I'm Mira Hunan, like a soulful Hulk. And whomsoever women and whomsoever, not a middle, we grant life to hamara you Amira, Tommy, one meaning to give life or the meaning to establish why you marry me more. I'm marrying Kasumi, normally he Laffy Kitab a verse of the penis I can do so woman the person who we grant life to no neck kiss Whoa, not Casa unit kiss with them kiss. We leave him in creation. We reverse him in creation. We have another verse of the 14 jewels in Surah. Allah says, woman Khomeini with our fat woman, Khomeini your word.

00:16:59--> 00:17:51

or more, we return him to the evil age, we return him to the evil age now, medical science talks of gerontology medical science talks of gerontology I swear by Allah, these are all thoughts that Ally's putting in my mind at this moment. And this is the grace of the Almighty, medical science talks of gerontology. gerontology is the aging of the human body, when nature claims back the faculties in installments. So gradually you lose your vision, gradually, you lose your year in grad gradually you lose gradually you lose your ability, your cognitive skills, and hence they refer to it as gerontology, the aging of the human body, the aging of the human body. And when nature claims

00:17:51--> 00:18:20

back when nature claims back the installments, in the faculties in different installments. So now, what's the correlation? What's the correlation? The scholars tell us that Allah subhanho wa Taala is impressing upon us that if you consider disfiguring to be remote to be strange, to be peculiar to be unheard of.

00:18:21--> 00:19:16

Well, a minor form of disfiguring is happening before each one of us DD is we observe people aging, and we realize how they have actually been disfigured not to another creation, but you cannot he was yesterday wise, calculated methodical, circumspect. upright fit as a fiddle suddenly his hunched, his frail, his weak, he's seen i is visually impaired he has a year in a month. Is this not a type of disfiguring, and that's precisely that is precisely what has been documented and captured and recorded. intercede, Othmani, under these verses, citing the fine correlation between the verses, we ask a lot to preserve our faculties. Again I have a verse of the Quran in surah 13 in the city of

00:19:16--> 00:19:36

Jos Allah Azza wa Taala colonel in Santa Fe f Sangeeta Karim. And indeed We created man in the best of forms. So Allah has given every creation a form, right? When say the na musante his Salaam was in the court of federal and federal asked him

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

who is allowed. So he said rabona levy are

00:19:42--> 00:19:54

in Wow, what a profound definition of Allah rabona our Lord and Lady the one upper and down coalition in everything.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

its creation and its appearance. So man and then instance

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

thing to really guided it. So

00:20:03--> 00:20:25

each one of us and then we have an instinctive inclination towards certain things that drives us that motivates us that inspires us. In fact, under this verse in the fifth Joe's in soda to Allah in Maurice kuramathi shaffir sobre la Mola has Lipton, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I love it. But

00:20:26--> 00:21:12

I love the fact that Allah has preparation for Hedda. And then he evaded so he has guided you know, instinct he has guided us to do to explore etc. So you can see in modern full Quran under this is that even quest of exploring the world and the universe and planets, Islam is not averse to it, Islam is not averse to it, I was guided us and humans are always trying to tap into different things, to explore broader horizons, why to enhance the quality of life. We go into other planets to take to explore life to get a lesson from it. But he says it can equally be, you know, covered under the ambit of this word hello.

00:21:13--> 00:22:01

Giving you the reference of way I read what I read. So please feel free to you know, check those references etc. So satana Masada is Salam said that Allah is the one who gave us an appearance. And then he guided us. So in Super 213 I was telling you, Allah says he gave us the best appearance. So Miranda now who is filosofi Lee, then he returns us to me then like that the now who will return him in an alliance saying I love He turns men after making the paragon of his creation, the noblest, the best appearance. So the elephant is the creation of Allah and Allah has shaped it in a particular way. The rhinoceros, right is the creation of Allah and it's it's created in a particular way. Each

00:22:01--> 00:22:44

creation is the creation of the Almighty. The trunk, the trunk of an elephant is referred to as hold boom, boom and ally even References This in the Quran and Subhanallah I don't know you know, it's just gonna become a lesson of Koran. And that typically happens whenever I get into a lesson is to so many verses. Okay, let me come back to Surah two teen Santissima who Adam Horton regarding when he's been moving, where Allah said that we will brand his nose we will brand his nose, but in a derogatory reference, Allah referred to him as the nose of when he'd been moving around. While Horton refers to either the trunk of an elephant or the snout of a pig.

00:22:45--> 00:22:53

Right center symbol was similar to brand senesi more high level horto senesi mobu.

00:22:54--> 00:23:19

when he'd been moving it up because of his arrogance, he tried to malign the character of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And as mentioned in methodical Tansy in Surah, total column under this ayah he said that will or will not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is insane so Allah Minister for you, right so amazingly so amazingly. lama valido Muhammad, Allah wa de he was Emma

00:23:20--> 00:23:35

be esmil lemma is what we do and Nabi sallallahu I knew he was sending them a Khadija summer will love will be I shut up. I smell Savita La Ilaha Illa La La ilaha illa Allah

00:23:36--> 00:23:55

so even more maligned and made blasphemous comments and remarks about the messenger sallallahu wasallam whether you have to be law, he said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is insane and it has to be learned it has to be loved. And that was a line that was incorrect, because what have been one of the law said in the law, I mean, unless you mean, but it does

00:23:57--> 00:24:39

mean a lot to me. For you Giambi, actually he Salama he was selling them in like a family member. And he reminded me that the combined intelligence and I read this in the writings of kazi Rahim Allah and his famous work of Shiva, Mustafa sallallahu wasallam that the combined intelligence of the entire world is like one dust particle, and the exclusive intelligence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is like the deserts of the entire world. So when he had been moving around, made a derogatory reference of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Then he said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is insane. Allah exposed close to 10 evil traits of his afterlife. Now both of

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

the aligner said I don't know of anyone who has been exposed in the Quran so badly like when he's been moving it up, and I'll amend this if he writes in his stuff, see that Subhana Allah system of the Almighty ease, if you send salutations on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam runs, Allah will send 10 blessings on you. Let us all recite Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

Masoli was sending What was it? What 100 whatever Hamada Habiba Tina Muhammad. Ali he was hard to hear chameleon and if you falsely intend right because these the prophets a lot he will send them Hassan at jimmy o Hassan II. Everything about him was unique and outstanding, was impeccable, was impeccable, was flawless. This is how Allah subhanaw taala had designed him. So if you try to malign his character, then on the same note and on the same vein, Allah will expose 10 of your evil threads. And Allah expose them in such a bad way, just under Hood Hood, to my mind digress to that, where Allah expose that his lineage was not established. He didn't have an established limit. And

00:25:48--> 00:25:58

that's when he went to his mom. And this is mentioned in the footnotes of Jelani. He went to his mom and he said in the Mohammedan was so funny be decisive in it for one

00:26:00--> 00:26:42

that the crop of Muhammad has exposed nine of my evil traits, and I know I am like that, but one out of the nine is that my parentage, my lineage, my ancestry is not established, and all my mom he has now blown the whistle on your infidelity. And the mom then concedes guilt and she says yes, the truth be told, the man who you perceive to be your father is not your biological father. The write up is in the footnotes of Jelani. And when he mentioned that verse of subroutine and then come back here. So Allah said we created man so I said, Allah has given the rhinoceros in appearance Allah has given the the elephant in appearance, Allah has given different creations different format. And

00:26:42--> 00:26:42

Allah said,

00:26:43--> 00:27:25

insanity oximeter cream, and I've given man the best appearance. And then also I always speak about in my dogs, that Allah has you, you know that the format not that Allah is dependent because Allah is harlot. So in Arabic, you have hudec, you have the D or you have founded, amongst other words, I'm just spoken of Quran terminology. So all three are commonly translated as a creator, but there's a fine line between three so but the means the one who creates without the former example, Allah didn't mimic the example of any person. Allah didn't mimic the example of any person and say, okay, he created the skylight so I'll make it. In fact, I lost the question,

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

the Photoshop.

00:27:33--> 00:28:17

This is the verse of the 13 Jews in the 13th chapter, the chapter of surah, the chapter on thunder, so easy that the other deities have created skies like the sky of Allah subhanho wa Taala him so the matter of creation has left you confused. This is the creation of Allah subhanaw taala let me do it, then please show me what others have created. So Allah is hunted, hunted in Arabic linguistically means a gentle shaman, allow them to bring into existence something from nothing, the most you can call man is a maker. And more than often is a breaker to be honest, nevermind a makeup but even if you want to convey a title, he's a maker. You cannot refer to him as a creator.

00:28:19--> 00:29:00

Because whatever man makes he's dependent on raw materials. And Allah subhanaw taala brings into existence, something from nothing, and that's the definition of creation. So Allah created his best creation from the most inferior of ingredients. If you look my brother and if you look my sister through the entire Quran, if you peruse or a cursory glance either way, you will realize the common denomination the common expression, adopted by the almighty in the creation of men is the expression of inferior ingredients. So at times Allah says min hammer in one

00:29:04--> 00:29:08

sided This is the verse of the 14 just sort of two lines are on the third page

00:29:09--> 00:29:42

inside indeed we created Mayan min Sol Sol in from sounding clay, like hammer hammer refers to muddy water mixed with sand it became muddy mud smooth it was left for a period of time must know means it goes off a stage. Then Allah says may not fit in and shattered and mixed to fluid. Then Allah says my inmy impure disgrace you know impure water. Then Allah says Allah Allah T min t an extract of clay. Then Allah says your human being is shall be what?

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

Right which which some scholars say refer to be beta super prime from the entire body of of a person. And in another verse of the Quran Allah says that mymind maheen mundo 15 min Hama you must know all verses you would find a lightsaber

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

inferior ingredients, and from that Allah fashion, the best of the creation. So Allah says Tamara, now as far as our feeling, they reduce him to the lowest of the low and that in Surah 15, which we read what Tina was a tool, the lowest of the low refers to the same thing is where his faculties, you know, kind of give up and they become lame and dormant and inactive, and he becomes immobile, and it becomes dependent, etc, etc.

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

But those who bring him on and do righteous, these

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

are one of the great scholars and Sons of Islam. He said inland Medina,

00:30:41--> 00:31:13

those who will read Quran in the youth, Allah will preserve their faculties in the latter part of the life. Let me try and make some progress. We went into a host of verses, but I trust that it was meaningful digression, like I always say, in my humble addresses. So with regards to I write, I give you an example of America, I give you an example of Africa, where a woman in her old age of vision was restored. And she's like, Wow, my word. Is this much Subhana. Allah? Do we appreciate this? Now let's have a look.

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

So

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

what

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

is some of it? Well, what that

00:31:22--> 00:31:48

means is, the aim of this is that you marvel at the creation of a lie, I often say that the sky, the earth, the mountains, the legs, these are the billboards, these are the billboards of a law. So these are variables they advertising, they telling you of a product, they telling you of an item, they marketing something, these signs around you. These are the billboards of Allah, what did the Bedouin say? He said in Melbourne,

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

are in

00:31:52--> 00:32:00

a little mercy for summer abroad. We'll do that we'll see judge what will be Haru that will allow you

00:32:01--> 00:32:11

to fill hobby. I must mention that, you know, we have opened our files and we are completed with Ravi as well. I know many of us would be fasting I apologize for drinking water.

00:32:21--> 00:32:42

The companion or the alarm man who said he said the droppings of a camel indicate the passing of a camel. the footsteps of man indicate the passing of a human. so foolish man. What about the sky and the mountains and the lakes? Don't they tell you a tale in a narrative that there is a divine being behind this? And indeed that is a lot. So the

00:32:43--> 00:33:08

days of yore I would be to marvel at the creation of Atlantis is the verse of the Quran again, I don't want to go into but it's it's fun. It's just so amazing. So let's remove Don't we all read surah tournament and we know the virtues and the merits of this chapter. Allah himself says for Jerry basa Wow. from German buzzer hunter amin photo buzzer karate young funny in a girl

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

who has seen my word

00:33:12--> 00:33:59

Allah say, Look at the sky and not once curtained repeatedly. helter amin photo, moto Rafi, man even tougher what are the muthana? So you will not find inconsistency in the creation of Allah? Do you find any mannerheim in Fuji? Do you find any gap? Do you find any slip? Do you find any weak? Do you find a variety I met without any parameters? It's holding their human sicko somehow it will have the anthozoa verse 22nd just sort of hearted Allah keeps the sky intact. So Allah says, look at the skies and see if you can find any deficiency. You know, a woman cooks a meal, what's your comments? What's your remarks? A person a child designed something with a Lego he or she makes something

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

What's your opinion?

00:34:01--> 00:34:46

You know, some somebody has some craft or some skill, he assembled something What's your opinion come in and make a remark? You know what? acknowledge compliment, etc. And the Scott is right under this verse where Allah subhanaw taala says in the 11 years in Surah, Yunus and again I credit that to the Almighty, I'm just having this influx of thought and as mentioned in the Quran, you don't belong. You don't belong. So that www Allah is Madame bear, Allah is that plan and Allah controls and Allah regulates and under this is a metaphor Quran is written, that you cannot call a man a planner. When man plans at its best, what does he do? It is objective application of the resources

00:34:46--> 00:35:00

that nature has put at his disposal. So what is doing so the atmosphere always had the ability of the transmission of voice it's just that human science evolved gradually to take

00:35:00--> 00:35:53

into it. Right? When, when, when Abraham or you know when when the the first telecommunication was was invented Graham Bell when he kind of tapped into it. So it wasn't it wasn't innovating something out of nowhere, the atmosphere had this and he tapped into something that was there. So when man plans at its best what he's doing, he's using the resources of nature is using the resources nature has given him this nature has given him the atmosphere, the wind, the tail wind and the aircraft and the navigation and whatever that we have. So it's objective synchronization of the resources of nature. That's when you call man a planner, but you don't realize the actual planner, because Allah

00:35:53--> 00:36:39

is the Creator of all these resources. So I let us look look around us and admire. Look at look at the change of season. My brother, my sister, you make the vicar of the Almighty and that's great, that's noble you make this be That's awesome. But do you know a lot invites us in the Koran to make Vicar of looking at the season. Look at the earth. Look at the leaves. What are a lot of Bahama a verse of the 17 just third quarter surah I have a flash of it now. What are the da da da, da La da? That one or that one that admin cool is our gym baggage, whatever, a lot of the Hamida and you will see the earth is dying for

00:36:40--> 00:36:47

now and then when we send on what it does it it actually revives it to the extent that it has like motion in it. It does

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

Mozart, like this motion in this movement? Is that what

00:36:55--> 00:37:02

it means to increase? That's why rebar interest is called rebar because it apparently increases right linguistically.

00:37:04--> 00:37:05

Why am I taking

00:37:07--> 00:37:18

Massey for the Euro bond is talking language of foreign so what all that increases? What am that and it produces meaningful result in that it can be anila who will have to and

00:37:19--> 00:38:02

so Allah invites us in the Quran with our eyes to look at this reflect and realize whenever Allah speaks of rain, Allah follows the discussion that as Allah revive the dead Earth, so will Allah Revive us. So remember that he says, by virtue of your eye, look at the creation as I told you, these are the bow birds of a love. You know, there's an incident and probably you heard this clip, right? It was doing its rounds of a brother from Australia some years back where he was studying Islam wanted to revert and take the Shahada. And then one day he decided, well, I just need the final convincing companion sign, you know, to just give me the absolute conviction on the veracity

00:38:02--> 00:38:48

of Islam. Now, again, I have another verse that comes to mind that Elian has made Legion in in mantic language in you know, understanding it philosophically. We refer to it as novel nobody and but he but he is the appellant. But he is the parent notary is where you apply your mind you apply there is a application process. And Allah has made the matter of faith to be something in which it requires the application of the mind. It's not something that just dawns upon you. The sun has risen. That's better he in Arabic, there's the proverb of Armenia shows it's brighter than the sun's the sun, you don't have to prove it to someone in the morning, I can challenge you The sun has

00:38:48--> 00:39:04

risen. I know what's the proof? Well, actually, the solar panels the solar car, no, no, no, the sun is out. It's bright. It's what we call, buddy, it's clear. But the matter of faith has been a thing which requires the application of your mind. And that is why that is why

00:39:05--> 00:39:46

only that person is tasked with the tenets of Islam who is sane and matured. So if he's not saying that he doesn't have the vehicle through which he can absorb the logical process, and if he's saying but he's not matured, then his intellect has not evolved over to a threshold of certain levels of comprehension. I just hope people are understanding me if I can get some acknowledgments here and people are following in what I'm saying, you know, on the screen, then I'll appreciate that. Anyway. So Allah subhanaw taala says in the 19 Jews in Surah, Sha in Surah, to sha Allah says in Masha Nunez de la de Mina summer

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

for berlet, to whom the hobby ring Allah says that if we wanted in the shop, if we wanted known as we could send 100 alarm, getting some acknowledgement I just needed to know that

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

that people are following. You can appreciate it's it's quite challenging for for all speaking to a live audience and now to speak you know what to

00:40:09--> 00:40:48

virtual audience but that's where the world is now. And Okay, thank you, Nicola. That's it, appreciate it. You know, you know the challenge is that when you're addressing an audience and you you don't know on what level you don't want to be, you don't want to be pitching your talk above the comprehension. You don't want to be pitching it below you want to reach out and you want to make it in an all encompassing all embracing way, but that you can kind of gauge from the demographics of your audience when you engage in them but in Europe well i think that you know what US citizens are intelligent people and a believer is always wise a believer is is calculated right the Prophet

00:40:48--> 00:40:57

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a believer like us who may not mean dropping in Ramadan but what a Once bitten twice shy a believer is never bitten by the same snake twice.

00:40:59--> 00:41:13

Oh, what was I say? No. Suhana la superfan on law which was will be on which was will be on. Okay, I lost my pattern of thoughts. A lot of my Sunday was sending Mubarak was it la masala Salah Mubarak on this.

00:41:15--> 00:41:38

He was happy here. It's mine. Anyway, I'll get back to it. Let's Let's come here to what we were saying. Yes, there we go hungry la la mina sama. Allah says if we wanted, we can send down a compelling medical verse 19 just sort of show around the chapter on poets. In a nutshell, we wanted no sound.

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

Okay.

00:41:42--> 00:41:51

Okay. Sure. Come on. Thank you. All good. In nutshell, if we wanted, it's a verse of the 19 years. In Surah sharara, the chapter on poets

00:41:54--> 00:42:42

known as de la mina samaya, we would send down a miracle a site so in the language of the Quran appears for two meanings. It could refer to as a verse Isaiah the plural is iron, or iron refers to his idea to the queen. The Queen refers to a sign in the same boat in the things that are around you. So a lot of things we could have revealed a compelling sign for bottle let our now for whom la ha ha Vereen Bella. Bella is the plural of the word or no hava means to drop the next word, just bow down in submission, there will be compound there will be mesmerized there will be liberated, there would be speechless there will be spellbound we could have made it come comparing but the wisdom of

00:42:42--> 00:43:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala has been that faith will be a thought process, you will apply your mind objectively and you will arrive through the guidance of the Almighty and the neutral application of the mind objectively in the course of truth, you will be guided to the correct way woman your name Villa de la mejor de la dee da Allah says whoever brings the man on Allah will guide his heart at the times of difficulty to patience and perseverance. So I was telling you of this brother, who wanted like, some clear miracle and he he was just about to take the Shahada, he closed the Quran and he's like Okay, oh my lord god divine being I'm considering Islam but I just need this last

00:43:29--> 00:43:55

convincing compelling proof that you are the absolute Be and he then closes the Quran and like you know what, in anticipation of some divine inspiration that is going to follow now revelation only came to the prophets and that was it. Mr. Buhari commences we often think about this idea of Buhari Baba cola he tada when Obama was in custody. Amina Tiana. Why now Amanda Walker,

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

supposed to be Rumia we speak about the last Hadith, right?

00:44:02--> 00:44:42

But we seldom speak about the first hubbies Baba colavita in a coma or hyena Illa know when they begin to embody that remember Hari Muhammad many smiling Buhari, Allah commenced his compilation of Hadith on the chapter of a revelation on the chapter of Revelation. So revelation came to the MDR and it terminated and concluded and culminated on the messenger sallallahu sallam. So this brother is like waiting, waiting, waiting, oh, man, I'm waiting for divine. You know what? inspiration and a jolt and a motivation, lo and behold, nothing happens. And then he says, just after that, I opened the Koran. And when I opened the Pura

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

bar, my gaze falls on the verse. What can I

00:44:49--> 00:44:56

say this summer where you will have the more room either you have a woman or the board worker

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

and how many voices in that

00:45:00--> 00:45:48

Heavens and the Earth in the skies and the earth Jambo Runa Island, they pass by it, meaning like daily, they pass by for whom I'm alone, and they ignore it. And he said, Oh my Lord, I got done. So I'm waiting for inspiration. When I opened the Quran it's a verse of the 13th chapter 13 Jews of the Quran 12 chapter, the chapter on so the use of just towards the concluding aspect of the chapter of Satan I use a valley Salaam, what can I use and how many I think science is somehow allowed in the earth, Yama, Rama, Rama, Rama when they passed by a woman while they ignore it. So what does he say to us my brother, my sister, that was our I, we ought to look around us and reflect and learn. Now

00:45:48--> 00:46:03

what should we be avoiding with our gaze? What should we be avoiding? further and urbane protect your vision from four things? And dandora Bihar Isla De Lima from do not look at

00:46:04--> 00:46:08

the opposite. Gender do not look at the opposite gender, right.

00:46:10--> 00:47:00

So Islam is a very practical, user friendly religion very pragmatic, and we need to explain things in a context when there is a need of communicating then with respect with modesty with bashfulness We must not be abrupt we must not be uncouth we must not be uncultured. We must be respectful, but we should not make lustful gazes or advancements. We should not be lustful, and we should limit our communication we live in a world we're not in a glass home. It's real, it's practical, it's pragmatic, we interact they our fellow Muslims, fellow non Muslims, they are males they are females working environment. So Islam promotes a sense of respect, courtesy, kindness, etc. However, we

00:47:00--> 00:47:03

should not play we should not play we should not

00:47:05--> 00:47:15

you know make lustful advancements in any way. We should not derive pleasure with our gaze staring at that which the Almighty has made forbidden.

00:47:16--> 00:47:19

What did the auditor pervert say? He said that

00:47:22--> 00:48:12

bear further has seen or several watonga zamana Samana Ancona, shuru kar diya Abdel Katana laiki Nagar on cuckoo on Santa Bajaj mumkin nahi Dil cut a Jana, that your heart is a victim of your gaze. So if you allow him to stray, then your heart will tend to size and if you did not limit your gaze and restrain your gaze, then it's few times to limit the fantasy of your heart. So the whole day you allow your gaze to stray you look at unsavory material, you look at porn, you look at forbidden, you fat you you look at that which Allah is made unlawful. And then at night, when your heart fantasizes, you're like no, no diverted, it's wrong stuck to the law. No, no, the heart is a victim

00:48:12--> 00:48:28

of the gaze. If you've allowed your gaze to restrain, then inevitably, you know what, it's going to fold it down into your heart, and the consequences of that would would would play out Lata Amanda nylund, Nisa,

00:48:30--> 00:48:31

massively Gianni and in this

00:48:33--> 00:49:27

in our in depth labuda and the whole be not brought into your home. And you know your loved one who said that I have barely found anyone to display the true level of piety when it comes to restrain in your gaze. So don't rely on anyone that he's a relative. He's safe with my sister or with my wife and he will not prey on her or abuse her in any way. My favorite way, johnnie Island nissa amino, let the necessary precautions take its place, and hence the beauty of Islam. So when there is a need of communication to the extent of necessity with respect and modesty. Let me share with you a verse of the Quran again, it's a verse of the 22nd Jews, and it is the chapter of Amazon and in that it

00:49:27--> 00:49:43

speaks significantly about the laws pertaining to hijaab veil, modesty etc. And Allah speaks about the concepts of the messenger sallallahu Sallam and by extension or woman Yan Isa and being in a stone Academy in an ISA in a

00:49:44--> 00:49:46

philosopher and a bill

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

DeVito became of course call them my work. Just look at the beauty of Islam. We have a crisis. We have a epidemic of

00:50:00--> 00:50:53

promiscuity which has plagued the earth, we have incest that has become the order of the day. We have what what crimes that that stares us, in our eyes across all ethnicities and communities. Look at the beautiful teachings of Islam respect to the woman honor to the man respect to the child dignity to one and all dignity to one and all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala addressing the concerns of the messenger sallallahu Sallam said that when you speak to a stranger filata Habana bill cold, then do not tone down Do not tone down. And the scholars have been very beautiful, it doesn't mean do not sweeten your voice because that's obviously known to be forbidden. It means in your natural voice,

00:50:53--> 00:50:58

try and and and and and just you know raise it slightly when you

00:51:00--> 00:51:53

you know take away the element of sweetness, forget the malady fetal the hemara leaves there is someone in whose heart is the melody of lust and he preys on you, but look at the balance. So let it not be that you you know speak or come across in any way that is seductive or provocative. What will Napoleon rufa but be kind say a good word. So your polite words say a kind word Islam tells you Be respectful, be courteous, be cordial. So we should be polite to male and female, one and all in a respectful manner. But yes, we need to draw the line of modesty and bashfulness. When we need to engage or interact with a fellow brother or sister across the gender line, then we limit it to two

00:51:53--> 00:52:08

topics that will be addressed. To the extent of necessity, the males would come to the house of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and converse with the consorts of the messenger sallallahu sallam, why does it matter?

00:52:09--> 00:52:37

Who you are I job Danny come up to become an OB GYN. So Islam teaches you will attend. So with that being a comb, that do not forget common courtesy, but yes, modesty how often how often, you know what, we are relaxed, and then there is no parameters, no boundaries, and all is fine. And then you are in for a rude awakening, you're in for a rude awakening.

00:52:39--> 00:53:28

I know of a very sad case, a very, very sad case where a particular person had, you know, his child had discovered a blood disorder. And the child was fairly advanced in age 1011 years of age. And then the only, you know compatible blood would be from the parents. And so at the age of 10, where the child was admitted into a medical facility, and the parents were taken to extract blood to give blood to the child, it was found that the blood of the father and the child did not tie up. And that was the only time the father discovered that actually he is not the father of the child. Now at home, there was a crisis, the child was unwell was admitted into a facility a medical facility. And

00:53:28--> 00:54:00

in the process, it appeared and it was revealed that unfortunately, his partner was disloyal to him 10 years 11 years back down the line where you know what infidelity was committed, and this child was conceived outside the wedlock. So these are not unheard of circumstances. These are happening, you know, ongoing, unfortunately. And we asked a lot to give us protection, preservation, morality, modesty, bashfulness, etc. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that

00:54:01--> 00:54:50

faith and modesty are inseparable companions. So do not stretch. You know, a lustful gaze we look, whenever we speak to someone, it's modest, it's bashful, it's respectful, and that is the owner of a woman that is the owner of a woman, you You, you, you you you do not you know what, lower her or degrade her or disgrace or unfortunately reduce her to just, you know, kind of passion and desire May Allah protect and guide one in all. So Anton therapy has in a very maharam that it is forbidden to look at that which is, you know, strange, someone who is not a Muslim to you. That's anybody who is marriageable, anybody who you can marry with very Muharram anybody who is someone that you cannot

00:54:50--> 00:54:53

marry, that is what we refer to as automatic,

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

permanent condition, then that would become a map from polymetallic from Omaha to como.

00:55:00--> 00:55:43

had to come up Panetta come on come in the in the concluding verses of the fudges in certain Nyssa Allah subhanaw taala speaks about this year what you know sort of in many hatin be chahatein Nuff said. He says so, so protect your eyes from for things from looking at an eligible Person of the opposite gender from looking at a beautiful form in a lustful way. Again, if it's anything material or mundane or transitory of this world, you don't look at it with an envious eye. There is innovation. We're in avani where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, is married now, allegedly is one narrator people have debated his authenticity in a headband has worked Taka who if I recall

00:55:43--> 00:56:00

correctly, and you know, but also who or some have said he's authentic and others not. But overall the narration enjoys, you know, recognition and merit. The messenger sallallahu wasallam said my Medina he lives in a team with Ravi Khanna, mahina and female akuti samovar to allow a woman

00:56:01--> 00:56:45

at the sovereign jameelah as kind of a love woman and for those who hate to shop that whoever stretches an envious eye to the material things and wow, that's such an awesome cow. That's such an awesome palatial palace. So within reason you look at it, you like it, it's decent, it's great. But don't become obsessed. Don't become overwhelmed. Let it not overpower you. It's not the be all Allah said regarding the disbelievers that he commanded a level home minella in reverse of the 27 years that he commanded This is the Bo does it cuts off balance mahomes in alpha bluefish check him in her bedroom in her moon when it comes to alpha they have no knowledge of elemental hieratic Tanya, they

00:56:45--> 00:56:47

only know the external, well

00:56:48--> 00:57:37

known it's a verse of the 21st to sort of room and they are heedless of the latter world. So it is incorrect to even look at any material thing with the absolute art of total admiration and envy and be all an absolute No, no, no, a believer, he looks at it, and you know what he understands. In fact, there's a verse that if you understand the academics of this verse, My words of Allah, so Allah gives an example of an era to this world, like like rain on an orchard right on vegetation and produce from the earth etc. Commercial device in our who foreign about to hook, my word is so much written, yes, Subhana Allah. So Allah says that this example of this word is like water came down,

00:57:37--> 00:58:00

like methyl similar similitude very thrain, chemically very thin, like rain that came down on you know, on vegetation, and then it started flourishing and it was looking beautiful orange who first run about that, the tillage and the produce looked

00:58:01--> 00:58:35

pleased, please into the disbeliever. So there is an academic question that the experts on the exegesis of the Quran Razia that a beautiful garden which is lustful, which is striking to the eye is something that is pleasant to a believer and a disbeliever. Why did Allah say are a double poofer on a battle, it looks appealing to the disbeliever there's one explanation given the kuffaar is in the linguistic meaning of tiller and farmer that's one meaning there's another meaning and that's the beauty of the Quran and both are authentic, you can open it and check it up as well. So

00:58:37--> 00:59:23

they say, Why did Allah say the font looks beautiful to the disbeliever? And the answer given is that even if it looks beautiful to a believer, a believer and never becomes obsessed with it, it doesn't capture his imagination, because he knows the real is a real is accurate. So do not look at a stranger, brother or sister with a lustful gaze, in your business in your workplace. Be respectful, be polite, be courteous, be called your greet with respect, do the basic norms of respect and dignity, and do not let your gaze stray show modesty show respect, show dignity, that is the teachings of Islam that is the teachings of Islam. And that is the empowering, that we can free

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

our society of, you know, this, this this scourge of, of promiscuity, they are relationships that are platonic, they are in relationships that are platonic, and that's a separate topic altogether in the context of work, etc, to the extent of work, which is platonic, and does not transcend the parameters of modesty and fullness. So don't look at anything material. Sometimes it's a car that captures the imagination of our children. Sometimes it's it's some monument or something material and of the day, everything is going to be

01:00:00--> 01:00:31

used to saying it's going to be reduced to dust, right? That's where it started and ultimately that is where it will end. It's this in between phase that becomes a deception for men. So, often, we have in our Muslim in behind the towel or that you look with your eye to any Muslim with the eye of disdain, you know condescending you look at him with contempt. And you You, you, you look at him with with human evolution, the messenger sallallahu wasallam said

01:00:32--> 01:00:44

there has been remain a shift there has been a minister, a young Muslim, it is sufficient to render a person evil if he thinks lo of his brother or he degrades his brother,

01:00:45--> 01:01:30

Tony I Bihar in IE the Muslim in or then you go and search and probe and try and investigate the flow of the blemish or the mistake of your brother. So in essence, he said four things with your eye you want to avoid number one, what you want to do, you want to navigate, you know to move around, you want to use your eye allies made it it's so helpful. My My dad always tells us take one organ a day, take one organ a day, and just put it on oil for the day. And then see how complicated Your life is without it. So one day, just say right, I'm gonna exclude the thumb, I'm gonna use my four fingers on my two hands and exclude my thumb just excluded from my activity or try and button your

01:01:30--> 01:01:52

shirt. Try and and take out your mobile phone, try and get onto your keypad, try and open your car door, try and open a window, exclude the thumb, next day exclude the index finger right one day shut one eye and try and work through the one eye or you leave one hand. So you always does us just try and do the exercise.

01:01:53--> 01:02:28

And you will realize that we we cannot move an inch or a second without these measurements of the Almighty. So we use it with the stellina behind feel hijab in all your needs of life. But then Dora Bihari Raja mallacoota Samoa, you marvel at the billboards of Allah as I use that pression and then you do not cast a lustful gaze you do not cast a lustful gaze at any marriageable person, of course, your legal lawful partner that Allah has given you, and you fulfill your need and your desire that Allah has given you. That is the beauty of Islam that Allah is allowed that year.

01:02:30--> 01:03:13

That in Islam, there is in celibacy, Islam, there isn't celibacy. Nika is the practice of just not the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but it's the practice of all the prophets in English. Someone said that marriage marriage has stones but celibacy has no roses. Wow. Married has stones in it right? This the stones, its challenges, there's hurdles, there's impediments this, this this things to it. But celibacy is no roses. So the only Prophet did not mad he was Yahuwah and Allah speaks about him what how soon we're going to be in that was his exclusive feature and attribute that Allah has blessed otherwise.

01:03:16--> 01:03:23

May you repeat the first one again? Okay, I'm not sure. Repeat what of the first one?

01:03:25--> 01:03:30

Maybe if you can just be more specific, Sister Sara.

01:03:31--> 01:03:50

So that I know precisely. So I said that. Nika is maybe the quotation. The quotation that I was quoting is that in in in English, they say marriage has stones in it. But celibacy has no roses. celibacy has no roses. And I said that marriage is an institution of all the prophets.

01:03:52--> 01:04:19

Risa alayhis salam will come on earth and he will Maddie esigning salam will come on Earth. The question is asking, was not married Isa, sorry, Sam will come on Earth. hasura refers to someone who doesn't have an inclination who doesn't have an inclination. He has no inclination Rizal is Salatu was salam, after he will arrive on earth he will have you know nikka and a family etc. So

01:04:20--> 01:04:27

Islam allows you Islam allows you that pure close proximity and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that.

01:04:29--> 01:05:00

Wolfie bouverie aha descansar data that in, in being in seclusion with your spouse, and being in seclusion with your spouse, you will be rewarded. It's an act of charity. The companion said it I don't know what the hula hula hoops he has a prophet of Allah when I meet in seclusion with my spouse, and I fulfill my desire will I be rewarded? He said yes. Because if you were to fulfill your carnal need and desire in the wrong place, you will be punished. So by the same logic when

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

you fulfill it in the correct place you will be rewarded. So Allah, can you imagine nobody speaks about this year that when you fulfill your need and your desire with your legal spouse, you will get the reward in your conjugal matrimonial bedroom relationship the almighty gives you the dwarfs it when you put a muscle in your spouse's mouth, it's charity. And like I always say in my marriage dogs to put a muscle in your spouse's mouth is a Sunnah for the newly wed and then near the dead.

01:05:36--> 01:06:20

brother and my sister, it is so not for the newly wed or the nearly dead, practice it love it executed till the end of time. So what's your spouse? be close be lovey dovey. Be hunky dory use loving words, use charming words, you sweet words, use romantic expressions Subhana Allah, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had the greatest amount of love and affection. I don't like to use the word romance for the messenger sallallahu wasallam out of utmost respect, and I'm not comfortable with the connotations of the word, men's for messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I don't say that word and that expression, because the Prophet says is the purest of the pure, but look at his

01:06:20--> 01:07:08

engagement with his spouse. I shut up the aligner says, can I let the third guy remove the fee Yo, he would drink from the vessel that I dry and he would consciously place his blessing mouth at the very point of the vessel. The glass the tumbler where I place my mouth. Now you are a learner you're below Dan Nisa, he was fine informativa Prophet sallallahu wasallam would kiss one of his spouses while he would be observing the fast then I saw the olana would blush she would blush because the reference was herself that I saw the letter says the prophet SAW some placed his head on my lap on my lap and he was reciting Koran. And this was during that period of the month where I was

01:07:08--> 01:07:31

experiencing my cycle. Can you imagine my brother? You say, Okay, I'm spending I'm going in my prayer room. I'm going in my zawiya to pray the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can take up Hijri What is your call Quran? He is reciting Quran while reclining in the lap of our mother, our HR of the law

01:07:33--> 01:08:23

says he would hop into the bed. And then when he would perceive that I had fallen off to sleep, then her Roger widen into Allah Raiden than a job for them. Then he would tell me sneak out of the room, discreetly close the door, gently way his shoes and then politely exit and then the rest of the night was him and his creator. Let us on Hosni in Novato. Linda, don't ask me how long that nocturnal prayer was. But he would afford me that close private time and sit with me. So the messenger somebody will tell them. Unfortunately, I am not complimenting my wife enough. She's not complimenting me enough. So we waiting for compliments from someone else. Why are you so attractive?

01:08:23--> 01:09:02

You're so gorgeous. You're so beautiful. You're So Amazing. And I feel like it's a compliment. And I feel like I'm not being acknowledged. We need to compliment our spouses at home. My wife, you're so beautiful. You're So Amazing. You're so attractive. You are so brilliant. You're so awesome. And likewise she does to me. And each one of us does this for each other. The Prophet sallahu wa sallam when he would return from a campaign, he would camp outside, look at them, Tasha. sharifa Lika de[???]a Schumpeter then the kids would go into Medina inform them that the caravan would be returning tomorrow so it allows the woman to doll herself up to prepare herself after that now what

01:09:02--> 01:09:41

Yolanda says I make it a conscious point to attire myself and make myself beautiful for my spouse because I want her to look attractive to me what I wouldn't let me throw nothing. Lebanon my rules when Ricciardi Allah Hinata Raja, I meant the ways you should use your vision, Okay, I got it that okay, the places where you should use your vision for in the household, a potluck or a test that he has with valamar to navigate through to in this world to move through you know, using your vision in darkness, intelligent moments, if just like when there's no light and now because of lack of external light you are unable to see. So the chances are you could hurt yourself. You could bruise

01:09:41--> 01:10:00

yourself you could injure so the gaze and the vision and the sight is to help you navigate number one, what does that mean that we have been hijacked in all the needs of your life you use it objectively you can see the something harmful, something that will you know, that's hazardous your etc. What under behind the law, even medical

01:10:00--> 01:10:15

This summer What will you marvel at the heavens and the earth and the creation of the Almighty will be having an idea and you draw a lesson or sorry doom and worry, intelligence is the one who takes a lesson from his observations

01:10:16--> 01:11:03

to battle through who fikar fortunate is the one whose reflection is is you know, whose gaze is a reflection and an introspection. So you want to avoid looking at someone you know with the last full gaze or looking at anything material and becoming obsessed with it. Or then looking at the believer with with with with the eye of disdain, or you know, your mediation or looking at any person because end of the day, we don't know what will be our state and what will be his state of Bihar in IE, be Muslim in or then you use your eyes to probe and try and search and investigate the faults of people. That's not the purpose of AI. We haven't been taught to probe and pry the faults of people.

01:11:03--> 01:11:13

So yeah, we'll just conclude on that. I I'm not sure if there are any I had told the admin that they could forward the messages to

01:11:15--> 01:11:16

my phone

01:11:21--> 01:11:38

Okay, there's a question here. Do I have to wear the niqab if I live with my in laws and brother in laws I went up everywhere else but not around them I've heard in this situation it is okay. Ah

01:11:39--> 01:12:05

I if I can ask the admin to maybe get the sister to email me directly and then I will give a you know personal detail explanation. The challenge is sometimes you know, in a question like this with an answer, people can take it out of context. So I'm afraid that it could be misconstrued So please, you know, if you could just contact them if staff team they will fold you my email and inshallah I will reply your question immediately.

01:12:07--> 01:12:26

In principle system, Masha Allah, may Allah bless you for the job. I'm not sure by job are you referring to niqab or a job? So hijab? Are we referring to the covering of your hair, or the niqab or the covering of your face? But inshallah, if you email me, then I will definitely, you know, advice on that.

01:12:37--> 01:12:38

So

01:12:46--> 01:12:48

okay, if there's any other questions, please forward it.

01:12:50--> 01:13:37

There is a question that has come through any advice for ideas on how to be patient and control their desires, if their husbands are simply not interested? already being intimate? So Hon, Allah, this is a very, very sad reality, have received the question that's coming through, I think from from my YouTube channel, she's Akela. Her sister, this is a serious problem. This is a serious problem. This is happening too often. This is happening too often, we unfortunately, the men succumb to other forms of unlawful forms of entertainment, thereby not fulfilling the right of their spouse not fulfilling the right of their spouse. And this is a very painful reality. And I don't think we

01:13:37--> 01:13:43

can shy away from this. Yup. It is a grave crime. It is a genius offense.

01:13:44--> 01:14:12

In the court of law in an Islamic law, a sister like this can take the matter to the judge, and she can ask for intervention. And if after a period of time, there is no attempt from the husband and he is not taking care of the need of the spouse, then she can ask for a annulment, she can ask for an annulment, because it's the fundamental right of that woman and that sister and that spouse, that the husband

01:14:14--> 01:14:22

takeover and unfortunately the case now I don't have the absolute details. I'm just giving a generic I'm giving a generic overarching response to the question.

01:14:23--> 01:14:30

But but more than often, more than often, it's where one succumbs to some form of unlawful,

01:14:31--> 01:14:59

you know, material on the net, etc. And they become disinterested in this illusion with their spouse, and they lose interest in the law, legal lawful spouse, and they tend to satisfy themselves through haram ways. So system may Allah make it easy for you. Islam, Islam does not compel you to remain in that relationship. Islam does not compel you to remain in that relationship. It's the right that your husband ought to give you

01:15:00--> 01:15:34

And you're entitled to take legal to take action in by a an honor my body and seek intervention in this matter. But it is absolutely wrong and an Islamic for him to fall short in the fulfillment of the right of his spouse. Either way, it is incorrect. That's one of the fundamental objectives of our marriage. But unfortunately, on the side of men, to an extent this is becoming increasingly rife and prevalent due to, you know,

01:15:36--> 01:15:37

an Islamic

01:15:39--> 01:16:21

engagements and indulge indulging in Islamic things where a person then unfortunately loses interest in his own spouse. So that is completely incorrect. We pray that Allah makes it easy for you, sister, but definitely, you know what you can seek assistance, and there's nothing to be shy about this in the correct way in a respectful way. You can seek intervention, and like I've mentioned if if the husband is not forthcoming, and a period of time lapses, and there's no attempt and he's not fulfilling, then that you know what an anon announcement can be sought in this regard. And it's legitimate to do so because you're very fundamental rights have been neglected and forfeited.

01:16:32--> 01:16:42

So another question that has come through your on, you know, as well with regards to how can we focus on reciting Quran in the month of Ramadan or memorization?

01:16:44--> 01:17:35

I generally whenever it comes to taking any steps in the deen, I say that, take baby steps and don't leap when we leave, then we cannot be consistent. And Pharaoh Amelie Madame Madame Allah, Hisashi boo, Allah, the best of actions is that on which a person can maintain you know what regularity and can be punctual with it, even if it is in a small bite. So my brother, my sister, I would say to you start but do it daily, do it daily. That's the key thing, don't don't have a gap. Don't have an interval don't have a break. Just continue daily. That is it. You see those that are into fitness and go to the gyms, right, you can have a workout today you can burn so many calories, you can do

01:17:35--> 01:18:18

all your exercises. But come the next day, it's a fresh start. It's a fresh time, life is so daily. So the key thing is Be it daily, I would say if you are asking to memorize the Quran, then start by memorizing even if it means three lines, or four lines or five lines, memorize that also, that's perfectly fine, but be at it daily. And if it's a recitation, my sister, my brother and you're not reading at all, recite one page of the Quran recite one page of the Quran and progress from there. maintain that every day in the month of Ramadan do it one page per prayer, we have only one page three minutes, two minutes, two and a half minutes one page in the morning one page after

01:18:21--> 01:18:51

the shadow of the Jews quota of the Jews in four days you will complete a job. This is for someone who is not reciting This is for someone who is not reciting. But of course those that are reciting, you know increase and intensify. So in a nutshell, to answer both those questions, start in a bite size, start in a small size start in a manageable size. You know in a simple easy way. That's how you get yourself stimulated and sustain Italy becomes part of you. And then you you inch forward and you go a notch higher inshallah

01:18:54--> 01:19:37

I'm getting quite a bit of questions coming through here as well. Some times feelings of envy creep up unintentionally, of other material things. Any advice on what road to combat this? Jazakallah, my brother, my sister for that question. So see, there's two things there's envy and jealousy. Envy is positive energy. Jealousy is negative energy. So envy is fine. And it is it is an Allah given energy. Because if we didn't have energy in us if we didn't have envious nature in us, as humans, we would stagnate. We all would just stagnate. So if I looked at somebody else in doing certain things, and it didn't motivate me or inspire me, then we'll just be stagnant in humans, but I look at

01:19:37--> 01:19:59

someone Okay, she's such a meticulous person or he's such a clean person or he's such a well attired person or he's Mashallah he is so diligent, so punctual, so religious, or he's so generous, like the prophets Allah is from c'est la casa de la with methane Raja Luna de la melon facilita, who Allah Allah ke Philip, do not stretch and envious I but to two people. One is a person whom Allah gave me

01:20:00--> 01:20:38

that uses wealth in the path of Allah. And one is the person whom Allah had endowed with knowledge and uses that knowledge to guide and inspire people. So, to the extent of envy, no human is free of it and there's a hint in the Quran in surah to last the last chapter of the Quran, where we ask Allah protection from the agendas Wow, look at what the scholars say. We don't ask and these were the two suitors that were revealed. As comfort and cure for the prophets of Allah they will send them when lobby they had cast a spell on the messenger sallallahu sallam, and the narration is in Sahih Muslim a Muslim Rahim Allah makes mention about it. Woman shutter the number 30 finger open

01:20:38--> 01:21:29

and from the evil of those who blow into the knots or mean Sharon knifes enough right and force from those who blow into the knots woman Shall we harness it? And Allah protect us from the jealous Allah didn't just say protect us from the jealous protect us from the jealous Eva has a de when he displays his jealousy when he expresses his jealousy. So the fact that Allah said Don't you know we asked Allah refuge and amnesty and protection when a person vents or expresses the jealousy only releases a subtle hint that the human anatomy part of our composition is envy. Envy is part of our components which gives off positive energy. But yes, when it becomes to a point when it becomes to a

01:21:29--> 01:22:18

point that we start dealing the growth of others, we put the hurdles and blockages in the way of others. Now that is catastrophic. In Amazon he says that for him has either either been done him because a jealous person is in perpetual Top Ramen Leanna Daniela blue yonder, Daniela Hello, because the world will never be free of your peers, friends, neighbors, siblings, associates who have more than you women and I'm Allahu la him the melanin Oh, Jonathan. So that's the word there will always be someone amongst your siblings or your neighbors or your friends whom Allah has given more so if you are in this constant that they must be deprived of it and that is serious my brother

01:22:18--> 01:22:25

and my sister and I think now that I've just read looking at the question it was most specific, it was more specific about

01:22:27--> 01:23:08

envy towards material things right? Feel envy creep up unintentionally of others material things. So how do any blood that try to read when you look at other people say masala La quwata illa Billah you look at someone's beautiful house, Masha Allah La quwata illa Allah so Mashallah, we all know La quwata illa Allah and where do we learn this? This is on the verse of the Quran ways for to recap who the tale of the two brothers one had a beautiful orchard one was a pious man who was living simple, so the one was arrogant. The pious brother told the other one when Allah is the culture genetic occulta Masha Allah Allah La Bella so even if you see your own child beautiful your spouse

01:23:08--> 01:23:33

your house, you say Masha Allah La quwata illa Allah that's what you read all Mashallah La quwata illa Billah you've got such a beautiful house all Mashallah por la Villa dress is so beautiful. It's such a so perfectly well Masha Allah, I'm so happy for you sincerely and not sarcastically. So hope that answers that question. Is there anything else? Your I think you answered this already? What's the best way to complete

01:23:34--> 01:23:36

yourself before sending it out to law?

01:23:41--> 01:23:42

Okay, so

01:23:44--> 01:24:04

there's a question here that a person has asked and I thank you, brother for asking the question because I believe we need to be honest, is that unfortunately, I have a weakness of giving pleasure to myself, giving pleasure to myself. And does that invalidate my past and you know the consequences of it? So,

01:24:06--> 01:24:54

you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and I the verse of the Quran in the 18 Jews that Allah has created for you your spouse's Allah has created for you your spouse's family better bah bah bah danika Hola, como la semana de la Anika, Hola, como la dude, those who search for the fulfillment of their carnal desire outside the legal spouses and lawful wedded partners, they have trans transcended the limits. You know, I had a young man who had confided in me who had confided in me and of course, we don't divulge any identity or name etc. And we respect the confidentiality, and he was absolutely gutted and shattered and distraught, because unfortunately it succumb to this

01:24:54--> 01:24:59

condition, and it had eaten up his entire life and destroyed his youth.

01:25:00--> 01:25:38

And his men with any Ted it had destroyed him completely. And he was actually he was a professional, academic individual as well. And we had a good relation and hunter like comfortably into the best of ability that the ghosts of tober, I always like to give, Oh, I like to give out, that's my message, give hope to the people give Oh, you know what, so long as you breathe in this out my brother, as long as you breathe in my sister, there's Oh, there's just too much negative messages in the world. But he cried to me and confided in me himself. And he said that that was the wastes and that any young man could ever do, it will destroy your confidence, your self esteem, it will erode your life,

01:25:38--> 01:25:47

it will deprive you of your relation with your Creator. So just to, you know, see exactly what the brother was asking.

01:25:50--> 01:26:32

My brother, you had asked how to protect yourself from this condition in Ramadan, I would try and say protect yourself in Ramadan and beyond Ramadan. Let me be frank, and let me be honest, my brother, and I've said this in many of my talks in many conferences, and many Q and A's, when it comes to abstinence from sin, there is no quick fix, there is no quick fix. You you've you've, you've got to muster the courage, and you've got to create the steel wall between you and son. And you got to tell yourself, I want to do it, pull yourself together, and you got to do it. So I give you a simple example. Right? You You, you have a dishwasher. And then you put the dishes inside, you

01:26:32--> 01:27:15

have a 30 minute cycle, which is a quick cycle, you have a 45 minutes and you have an intense cycle of one hour, 60 minutes, whatever the cycle you choose, the system will play out. If you if you design and program yourself for 30 days. Then for 30 days, you'll be discipline. If you design a system of 60 days for 60 days, it's going to happen. And if you'd say I'm going to program myself that I am now rewiring myself and I'm changing myself, then insha Allah, Allah will give you the strength Now, going forward. Nobody said that to give up sin is easy. All we say it's possible. Did you get me my brother, my sister? I never ever said and if ever, anybody tells you to give up cell,

01:27:15--> 01:27:46

it's easy, then please share that formula with me. No humans are addicted to give up an addiction of something which is not sinful, right? I mean, I've got a bad fizzy habit. I like to have soft drinks and fizzy fizzy drinks. And I know it's not good. And I know the sugar intake is not good. But But you crave for that sugar intake, and just to wean yourself off and to drop it. You know what cold turkey is not easy. So but it's not that it's not possible. What they said in English is even the word.

01:27:47--> 01:28:09

There's nothing like impossible. There's nothing like impossible. In fact, even the word impossible tells you. I impossible. Hello, little bit of English here. I hope you guys understand. What I'm saying was, it's like 11pm here in central Kentucky, those of us locally. I know in the US, you guys are still probably getting close to

01:28:10--> 01:28:55

the word impossible, tells you is impossible. My brother. I'm not saying it's easy. I'm saying it's possible. It's difficult, but it's workable. Every time you succumb to the vise, you get temporary relief, but the vise gets a tighter grip around you. And then you live this miserable life. So what you need to do, you need to put a boulder on your chest and muster the courage and ask you Allah. And at that time when the grave hits you, you think like if I'm not going to second I will die. You won't die My brother, I won't die. Yoda will die when Allah has ordained our death. But you think if I'm not going to do it, I have this overwhelming urge in me to commit and indulge in this crime.

01:28:55--> 01:29:03

It's going to be intense because of the addiction and the habit. But gradually you will find your independence, crush that evil

01:29:04--> 01:29:13

and have a life or then succumb to that evil and taste death daily for the rest of your life. May Allah make it easy for us all.

01:29:21--> 01:29:27

Any other questions? Oops, we're getting a big influx. Yeah, I think I'm going to wrap up on this year.

01:29:34--> 01:29:42

How to treat our wives better like the Navy of Allah sallallahu sallam. Okay, I think I'm gonna I'm gonna conclude here and inshallah we'll maybe entertain some of these questions.

01:29:44--> 01:30:00

01:30:00--> 01:30:48

keep you safe May Allah protect you, I trust it was a great session and I pray and wish and hope that we are going to conclude the session spiritually energized and that we we conclude this with a better focus inshallah and appreciating this NEMA this number of eyes that Allah has blessed and endowed us with and we ask the Almighty Allah militancy amin na sala Hamada tena Allah Medina Oda becoming so well in our magic with the holy IV I think both diplomatic which I mean, I think that all I do not see is the faculties and the ability given us. On that note we conclude or sallallahu wasallam modern Amina Mohammed was early he was happy chameleon was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi

01:30:48--> 01:30:49

wabarakatuh
