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

Bismillah Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Hassan Allahu Allahu wa sallam were bad. So what have we heard today in the tarawih prayer that was recited and I thought I'll touch on that before we commence with or continue from where we had stopped yesterday. And that's the verse of the sixth chapter of the Quran. Surah anom. In the eighth Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala says my ninja bill has an active Allahu wa shrew I'm 30 now in Alba Harare, Mohit in Alba for Mohit it is mentioned, let me first give you a translation of the ayah and then the amazing deduction of the Mufasa from this ayah the owner is manager of Bill Hasina. We commonly loosely casually translate this ayah whoever

00:00:45--> 00:01:33

performs a righteous deed fellow who actually and thoroughly ha then for him it will be multiplied 10 times but in a bathroom or hate it is written and so amazing that Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say men Amina bill Hashanah, Allah said men jar a bill Hassan and there is a big difference between amela and Java. So amela means the one who performed the good deed and Mangia a bill has an M means he performed it. He preserved it. And he brought it along with him after his death, Mann amela whoever performed the deed, manga, and we know after Java when the Scylla is bad, then it means to bring right that that is basic Arabic. So Allah didn't say the one who performed a virtuous deed.

00:01:33--> 00:02:17

Allah said the one who produced it, the one who brought it, that means it is my duty and your duty my respected brother, sister listener, that after observing the fast after performing the Salah, after giving the charity, our effort does not end that's one achievement. But from there onwards, we need to preserve it. The simple analogy you might think this is so complex and intricate. It's not only to earn money, it's to invest that money, it's to diversify that investments. It's to preserve that investments, it's for those investments to mature. If a person argues and say I earn so much what's the natural reaction of his spouse? Don't ask him how much he earns asking how much he brings

00:02:17--> 00:03:07

home, there's there's probably debits that are going through their retirement fund that's going through their his monthly payments that when he comes home, probably one chunk or one third of the check is gone and we come in with either two thirds or half of it. So Allah says men are bill Hassan, and the signals a serious warning for us that we cannot become complacent at the point of execution of an action. But we need to consider beyond and hence a knowledge of the Allahu anhu said kuno li coup de la Melly a shot at ma man minimal. But in the who layyah Tila armelle ma taqwa working for your Taco Bell, that be more concerned about the acceptance of an action, then its sheer

00:03:07--> 00:03:55

performance. Because no action is trivial when paired with piety. And how can something be trivialized when accepted in the court of Allah? So Allah said men are bill Hasina, Mangia and that is key. We often feel once I have discharged it, I'm over No. Now we could do so many things. There is inhalation of Kumamoto vilano entities I came across it in medical Quran under this ayah wakulla insane in the Navajo bar era woofie run Okay, and each man's fate is this man would be dangling around his neck. Why? No hurry. Jolla, Tia Mati kita and we will produce before him a book that will be open that means his book of deeds. If read Kasab, enough sequel, yo Malaika Seba to the US

00:03:55--> 00:04:01

official sufficient to take account for yourself. And as the Quran says in the 15 Jews in Surah Kahf that

00:04:02--> 00:04:34

when that book will be presented before him, he will respond by saying Mali has Al Kitab What's the matter with this book? La Johan de Rosa de Ratan wala cabbie Ratan saw her it did not leave a small minute or a significant crime or virtue, but that it captured it. So something like you know, I used to give the analogy to students is probably you say, Well, I sent an SMS or a text message or an email to so and so. But it didn't even deliver.

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

So the recipient didn't receive it properly. It was something unlawful. It was in Lessard it was impermissible. And you might argue that it did but the fact remains you did what you did. Marley has Al Kitab what's the metal with this book? Now you're gonna do sadly right then when I Kabira it doesn't leave anything small or anything big in law sahabat that it has captured it. And then what does the Quran say? Well, what

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

Do me Lu javiera, they will find the actions before them. And before you accuse a law of abusing or denying you have any form of, you know, mismanagement or any form in any way that you have been following, you know, there's been reduction in your virtue whether Yamanaka hada, Allah refuted vehemently, Allah refuted strongly that Allah is free from zulum. And that's generally the tone in the Quran. Wherever Allah speaks about his punishment, and Allah speaks about penalizing a nation because of their wrong then in the end, Allah makes a declaration although Allah doesn't have to make a lot of them. I gotta make a disclaimer, a lot of us have to make a disclaimer because Allah

00:05:47--> 00:06:34

is medical model, but he proves and repeatedly impresses upon us that whatever measures were instituted against nations, this was because of their wrongdoings and not because of any act of injustice from Allah subhanahu wa tada for Colin, a husband A B, then B. We seized every nation because of the crimes from inhuman or sudden and he has a BA somewhere those on whom we unleashed Stoney wings so Hassan been Arabic means pebbles has he been winds that will you know, causing stones and pebbles to fly with it from in human Arsenal, a woman woman that was somewhat gripped by the awful cry of an angel woman woman herself Nabeel are some widows that will walk in when we audit

00:06:34--> 00:07:16

the earth to split and follow them woman whom in Africa, and some were those that were in the ocean and in the waters and records the waters to swallow them and drown them. Wanaka Ana la julio de Lima one, Omar con la jolla De Lima one what I can can enforce a homeopathy moon and it is not in the nature of Allah to oppress anyone while I can can enforce a homeopathy moon but they oppressed themselves when this proud arrogant brother walked into his garden, and he said, What the hell the Quran said what the hell a janitor who who Avante, Molina FSI. He walked in with arrogance. And Allah said with his arrogance, he only oppressed himself. You cannot oppress Allah in any way. So

00:07:16--> 00:08:01

I'm saying to myself and to the listeners, that it's imperative, we take active measures for the preservation of our virtue, and we don't do things that would render our actions null and void in the court of Allah. Our duty is to perform the action, preserve it and bring it along in the 19 Jews in Surah, two namale Allah speaks about this application of sadhana Sulayman alayhis Salam europeos Irani and ash Khurana meta keleti, unarmed Allah Yahweh Allah Walla Valley, they are an alma lasallian Allah grant me the ability to do good actions. The scholars say he didn't stop there. Then he said, Babu Babu. Allah let it be that my good action pleases you. And from the scholars the news

00:08:01--> 00:08:40

after the performance of a good action, it's your duty now to ask Allah. So you you furnish your documents, you submit it, you don't sit back. Now you follow you follow the updates of your visa application. What's the latest? You get an automated message to say, you know what, it's been submitted. This is the final number. This is the reference number. It's now sitting on the desk of the ambassador. It's been processed your documents have been analyzed tarball that it be that Oh Allah you are pleased with that action. And if ally is pleased, does it mean that at that point our our entry into Git agenda is guaranteed on the strength of our good actions? Know what at the knee,

00:08:40--> 00:09:19

Berra Matic of everybody Casali Hill, just just look at the humanity in this application of the profits of a man and his alum. Oh, my Lord, give me the ability to do do good deeds. Then he said well, I ask of you Tara, who to be pleased with it. And then enter me with your mercy with your mercy. We're at the filmi Bella medica fee. Hi, buddy. Casali hain with your pious servants and that is in the gardens of Jana. So May Allah make us among those fortunate people. So I was mentioned in this ayah there is a hadith mentioned in medical Quran under this ayah wakulla. Concerning on the strength of mama de la manga, that a person will appear before long The day after Yama his book of

00:09:19--> 00:09:39

deeds will be presented before him. Allah will then ask him Have a look read you can peruse and then allow an ask him a viola makikita Betty l have you alone? Did my scribes oppress you in any way? And he's like no, oh a lot. And then he will say Oh Allah respectfully I find some virtuous actions that I had performed, not recorded.

00:09:41--> 00:09:49

And that again is the nature of men. You know, our sins are so many and we ideally Forget it. Our virtues are so few and remember that

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

you know, I often say people will speak about amongst themselves so and so came to me and he you know what? He came to ask me for a loan. Oh, he came to you. Yeah, he was at my place.

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

Well

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

complete the sentence you didn't help him.

00:10:04--> 00:10:46

You're quick to say he knocked your door. But you wouldn't complete the sentence to say that hang on you didn't assist him. Many homes you will walk in, people have these big frames displayed hasn't been familiar up be. This is the grace, the boon and the mercy of my Lord. And that's great. That's brilliant. But why don't you complete the IE abalone? Screw I'm up for that. This is what my Lord has given me to test me. Am I being grateful or ungrateful? And that's what Solomon alayhis salam said. And when did he say he said it? When he was sitting? And he asked his entourage and he asked the human and the gene guide around him. It's beyond our comprehension the empire that Allah had

00:10:46--> 00:11:32

endowed him with him. This is in the Quran. This is in the Quran. He said to them many a teeny bit outershell ha cabela Tony muslimeen, who will bring the throne of the queen of Saba to me before she comes submitting and surrender into the message before she arrives here who can uproot her throne. This is almost like an impossible ask. It's a tall order. It's a challenging request to upgrade route to physically lift something and relocate it at another place. So one of the strong and the mighty gin parlor, a free to mean Elgin. And it can be tabela and taco mommy McCormick, I will do that before you stand up. So you sit in just for the duration for you to stand up if you issued the

00:11:32--> 00:12:19

command. Your Majesty, Your Excellency, you issue the decree before you stand up the throne will be and the narration of jela Lane signal Solomon alayhis salam said Anna Reed cerametallic I'm looking for something more swift more instant more quick than that. calella de la mominul kita be Ana de cubby tabela de la Katara folk. And then the one who knew the knowledge of the Book meaning the name of the small album, the Supreme Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, Oh Sulaiman before you twitch your eyes. Before you tweet your AI it would be before you. Furthermore, who must occur in the hood? Imagine this and May Allah grant us humanity? Are you sort of the alarm and I used to say

00:12:19--> 00:13:03

in GM letter, the owner of Berlin Alibaba, I don't know why people are neglecting and abandoned in the greatest act of worship. When asked what she said a tornado. Imagine you enjoying such authority, such power such might that you request something you told before you stand up, it would be delivered, and you have the muscle in the cloud to request something beyond more instant, and you barely make the request. You barely touch your eye and there that palace, that entire Throne of buildings is uprooted and relocators sorrow and grief. He's in control of the situation is not mullaloo bullhorn his utterances in both those situation gives off direction.

00:13:05--> 00:13:52

Generally when a person is overexcited, he's elated. He's ecstatic. His tourbillion is overwhelmed. He loses control over his words, or he's extremely sad. But a nebby articulates and gives guidance even in the midst of those situations. As stormy as the situation could be the messenger sallallahu wasallam loses his son Ibrahim Ravi Allahu anhu, dear and beloved to him, and he said Allah has arranged for a nurse to circle him in Jannah. And in those words of crying and sadness and emotion is head in the line at adma Welcome, zone Wanaka Lama Yoda here at buena erotica Ibrahim lahmacun the Anima say in two words the messenger sallallahu Sallam summarize the book and cruddud rights and

00:13:52--> 00:14:35

limits verily the ideas in the line utma and the heart lemons well California has done well and akuto in llama Jacobi here of buena. But in the midst of this pain, difficulty and adversity, we will only utter that word which Allah is happy and pleased. And surely Oh, Ibrahim, your separation leaves us restless and uneasy. We're in now before we are saddened by your demise. So so the Mona Lisa Ramses the throne, he says, I'm in for the lira be. So May Allah make us amongst those fortunate people that we can preserve. So this person will ask Allah that all I see my book of deeds but there are certain actions I performed are not recorded. And then it would be said to him, yes,

00:14:35--> 00:14:44

those good deeds were deleted and were omitted and were erased because you used to gossip and backbite.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

Now I often say if a person you know they say put your eggs in different baskets, diversify your investments. If a person has five shops in different malls, and one shop is not doing good then he offs

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

That's it with another shop. But if a man is Hawking and he's only income is to stand on the side and sell, and at that day The weather is bad, and there's no takens for the day, then for him it's a big blow. Because the downfall year, he cannot compensate for it. He doesn't have other branches or other stalls. If a person is coming with Brahman, Amal and great actions, and probably there's a deficiency in one, hopefully one can offset the other. But the average human and I talk of myself more importantly than others. Unfortunately, we don't have multiple investments. We only have one to two actions. And if we cannot preserve and protect that, then how would we appear before Allah

00:15:40--> 00:15:57

subhanho wa Taala Ahmed Abdul Aziz Rahim Allah said a darkness Salah while whom learn your own Allah the toughest Salafi whenever you saw me when I can feel cafe and the nurse Fatah, mo layli wasa mo na Hari in lamea, Felisa who

00:15:59--> 00:16:53

I met the Sahaba and I seen the great luminaries and legends of Islam. They did not limit the definition of piety to observing nocturnal prayer and observing the past, but rather what I can think of an arrow the nurse restraining the tongue from attacking the honor and the self esteem of people for Chi, Mo Laney wasa mo na lamea Felisa who, let's say young male tiama so the one who stands by night in prayer in vigil in nocturnal prayer, and observes the fast but cannot restrain his tongue. He will stand up as a pauper on the day of Yama. Someone wrote to Abdullah, Amara, Ilana and he said, a nikto la beloeil Nicola Nicolay Omar Abdullah Omar you're a giant of knowledge you're

00:16:53--> 00:17:39

an absolute mountain of knowledge or an ocean of knowledge. Can you write and summarize knowledge to me, he said in McAfee when I came in is tatata and delta La Jolla huffy for vahi min Dima in nurse humming Sol botany min unworldly him carefully Sonny and Ravi him for final lesson knowledge is a lot and I cannot summarize it. But if you can do three things in essence you practice on Deen in its entirety. Let it not be when you meet Allah Your hands are stained with the blood of a believer. Let it not be when you meet a law that your belly has been set he ated with an unlawful muscle and let it not be that when you meet Allah, your tongue has attacked the honor of any Muslim or any human

00:17:39--> 00:18:35

for that matter. If you can meet a law like that, then you've practiced upon knowledge. So it is imperative and where do we deduce this alpha? Men jabil Asana man, not man amela manga that means perform it, capture it, preserve it, bring it along with you when you die. That's the time for the washroom. I'm Talia. We move on to the discussion today. Yesterday we concluded on the aspect of satana Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and the adopt of manava the etiquettes of debate and how we should be diplomatic, euphemistic, gentle, tactful, etc, etc. and present the beauty of Islam, we ourself need to have Basilan as a dari as, as a person inviting you need to, you need to have

00:18:35--> 00:19:23

absolute conviction. You need to have absolute conviction on your message. You cannot be promoting an item or an article if you are not convinced on that article yourself. Paulo Harvey Sebelius Andrew Illallah EI la basura Allah basura teen I invite and the scholars have deduced so many things from this ayah like many other ayah Allah basura so basara refers to you know, seen with the physical eye, while basura refers to the conviction of the heart the inner eye, as Allah says in another verse in Surah, to hygiene the 17 Jews for inna Hala Tamil a bizarre wellock in Tamil poo Latif is pseudo it's not their physical army that has lost vision, but rather it's the spiritual

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

life. So Allah mentions to us another amazing tale and again, to reinforce within us the power the goodra the might of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

Okay, levy Mandala Allah kuryakyn where he we attune Allah urrutia or the example of the person who passed by a locality while it had collapsed on its roofs. So how are we to nalla roofing hub and this by the definition of most move Assyrian was Rosetta alayhis salam that the roof of a building had caved

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

In and then the walls collapsed from all four sides, and around him was just ruins and destruction, and he was passing by. Are there alayhis salam. So the Quran doesn't categorically mention his name, but the Romani and many authentic the Pharisees have referenced that this ayah refers to say either now or there alayhis salam. So as he observed this, a thought just appeared to him now it's human, sometimes you've seen things and thought crosses your mind, you probably have a certain concern, or a certain observation, or a certain remark, etc. This was the nephew of Allah He passes by he observes the ruins around him. And he says to himself, and you hate, the love of God, ha. Surely

00:20:49--> 00:21:11

Allah will revive this. And Allah has the absolute strength. The question was not can Allah or well Allah, but rather in his heart and mind, he was asking himself, in which manner will Allah revive this? What will be the manner in which Allah subhanho wa Taala will, will will will revive this, remember when the Virgin Mary was given

00:21:12--> 00:22:03

the glad tidings that you will be blessed with a giant. So she immediately was shocked. She was astounded. She was perplexed, and she said that and now you're Cooney, Cooney volum, Chesney, Bashar cooperia How is it possible for me to be blessed with a child when I am not wedded and I'm not unchaste I am not immortal, and I'm not married. And those are two ways either legitimately or illegitimately, either through wedlock or unfortunately through unlawful relation. Carlat, she said, and now your cannoli. Well, how would I have a child when I'm young says honey badger. No mail has touched me when I'm young. And I am not immortal. Kanaka dianic Kala kadalai corner cuckoo and a

00:22:03--> 00:22:15

yin? And what did the angel say? Exactly? It's going to remain the same, that you will not get married, and you will remain chaste and bashful and modest, and yet you will become a mother

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

Kanaka Dallek colic as I

00:22:20--> 00:22:31

am and for your Lord everything is easy. The orlimar say there's nothing easier for Allah everything is easy for Allah and the place where he uses the word and when it's in the meaning of high yield.

00:22:34--> 00:23:16

Because if I'm saying something is easier than that is that is comparatively something was less easy something was more everything caught on buku Aliya high yield Yin, what does Allah say in the 21st jos mahalo calm, voila. So calm illa kenaf sin wahida to create the entire creation and give death to everyone and then resurrect everyone is like creating one soul giving death to one soul and resurrecting one soul. You know, in in the human context. There are a lot of people you take an analogy of a woman, she can cook a lovely meal, but provided it for five people. If it gets any more than unfortunately too many hands in the car. It just messes it up. So she can do a nice family

00:23:16--> 00:23:45

dish, you know, but if it's a big one, then you need to get catering you need to get someone else to do it. There are so many people, he's very skilled, but if it's an iPhone, yes, if it's something else, then he doesn't know. So as soon as you move away from his comfort zone or that particular device or somewhere else, or the volume increases or the magnitude increases or the scope increases, then his skill is reduced proportionately to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's only his intention.

00:23:46--> 00:24:08

In nama Maru BNL caffee were newly in nama ambu BNL Kathy when newly the emissary irata to LA he who allude a lot to the sheer intention of Allah, his existence but nobody can impress convinced or compel Allah to make that decision. No.

00:24:12--> 00:24:28

Okay. So, anyway, say you know, Rosetta, Allah is Salatu was salam, as we were mentioning, he the thought was not can Allah or well Allah, the thought came in him in which manner in which manner Allah and you have

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

to now listen to this my respected listeners and this is what the Quran is teaching us. And repeatedly we need to read these tales and these stories to strengthen our aqeedah and our belief and our conviction on the absolute might and power and and grandeur of Allah subhanho wa Taala for a moto lung who meet at da min. For Amanda will learn how to meet a time in a long term goals to his death for a century.

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

So he's riding past he's moving past he has this observation, and to teach him and by virtue of him to teach others along, makes him an example, to manifest his absolute power to others, that this is the absolute mount the power, might serenity and strength of Allah. Allah causes him to die for a century. But this is again the greatness of Allah, that Allah can cause your death. And that's not all. Allah can allow you to feel the time is so limited, while time in the world continues.

00:25:37--> 00:25:54

This is again the the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Seven Sleepers in their cave, they slept. And the scholars tell us and again, this is the beauty of the Quran. And as we've been exploring over during these days that have passed one of the last organs to sleep over the years.

00:25:55--> 00:26:38

And one of the first organs to respond when you get in other years. How often don't we see that a person is falling off to sleep, but there are some faint voices echoing so when he gets up I heard there was a shuffle and I heard there was some screaming and I was like, half in dreamland, and I was half awake. But I heard there was a argument and there was an altercation and there was exchange of some heated words. So he's not fully there, but he's not fully the conscious nor fully awake. And then when he gets up, then again, you can hear probably the alarm has been sounded or the alarm on the phone is ringing away, or the doorbell rings or this screeching sound or whatever it is. So when

00:26:38--> 00:27:26

the youth in the cave slap, Allah said Father robina Allah, him Phil confezione da da da. We call that sleep to overpower them including the ears that means they were in total sleep. They were in absolute slumber. They were in deep sleep. So one is no us. And one is known no as a slumber letter, who the who's in a tune well known. Allah is not gripped by slumber no by sleep. And they slept for three centuries. And yet when they get up, and they call a car illumine Camilla based on Tallulah Bitna, Yeoman Oh Baba yom. And they mutually ask each other enlightened fears carried on and decades have passed and centuries have moved on. And new rulers and the change of world has happened. And

00:27:27--> 00:28:10

they're asking amongst themselves how long so the argument is not whether it was two centuries or three centuries the argument is whether it was half a day or one day and Subhanallah within that cave, that Allah allowed them to sleep, oblivious of how life was evolving outside them, that the debate is and that also the scholars say like in the case of Zara Li salam, when he got up he was asked him like, how long did you rest? How long did you sleep to Yeoman Oba? Yo, it was a full day or probably half a day. And and describe to say the reason why he said half a day is because this incident occurred in early morning and he got up towards sunset. And he assumed this to be the

00:28:10--> 00:28:43

sunset of the day that he fell off to sleep, only to know a century at labs. Only to know a century had laps. But this is the power and the qudra and Allah preserved his body it didn't decompose. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala said to him, but elisabetha me at the arm bellabeat Tommy, Tom, you rested you snap for a century for a century fondo de la Tomic And that's not all. Look at your food and your drinks. It hasn't yet rot. Let me understand now.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

I have debated about the higher Is it the highest sector? is it part of the actual word etc. Let me get a second now.

00:28:52--> 00:29:36

Your food has not even brought you leave milk out of the fridge. Right? And you know what, let it go a day, sometimes even prior to the expiry date, leave alone after the expiry date, and the smell and the odor that it gives off. And food left for a century Subhan Allah This is the power. And that is why we need to remind ourselves that why in this world is a world of cause and effect. We need to know that Allah is not bound by these systems. Allah is not bound by these systems. I often say to people, when you make dua to Allah when you somebody is terminally ill chronically ill then when dealing with the doctor, it's perfectly fine follow protocol and procedure. Doc, have you taken the

00:29:36--> 00:29:58

Bloods? Have you got the results? Have you taken an autopsy? Have the labs responded? are we waiting for an X ray? Are we doing the gastroscopy? Are we doing the colonoscopy? Are we doing these procedures or not? That's fine. But when you're making dua to Allah, you don't have to tell Allah, Allah make sure that the results have a clear make it that the blood is fine, like even Shiva.

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

Why go through

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

The procedures,

00:30:02--> 00:30:45

why go through the procedures allamakee that a specialist arrives tomorrow and he can do a good assessment and it's clear Allah and if they need to do X ray then the results are clear. And if they have to, you know what do some other surgery then the note like if she fought, like if she fought, that's a ask Allah for cure and she fought and and Allah is these these things are subject to the will and the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala this procedures etc. So Bella Vista me, Tom Bella Vista me imagine you read in this chapter daily or occasionally from time to time and you are reminded about the greatness of Allah you're going through a challenge in your life and it's

00:30:45--> 00:31:22

completely clogged up and blocked up and you think the son of mines things are not coming right? You know what, unfortunately, he succumbed to substance abuse, or my children my son's marriage is on the rocks or my business is just not you know, booming of flourishing, and you wondering, can it come in? Will it come in? When will it happen? And then you read and you read these incidents in the Quran of the absolute mind power and Pedro of Allah? Can you imagine the kind of boost it would give you understand it would give you in your prayer, Wonder ella hemric and look at the mule and the donkey when in alika tell the nurse and we have done this so that we make you a sign of our power

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

and our greatness. When do they make a financial

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

law and look at the bones of course the donkey had died, the donkey had died.

00:31:33--> 00:32:03

And Allah said we will assemble these bones and then we will put flesh over these bones and then we will recreate this mule and this donkey and then you can mount on teams back and you can move on and Allah causes that animals bones to assemble. Right as as it's mentioned in the narrations that on the day of Yama. Eva Marie ballia right the angel will announce a to la vamos ballia lwml mata mesilla pumila Fastlane caba

00:32:04--> 00:32:18

awamori ballia. ballia means to decompose when when Taliban acid never has been wild came or it was one of the other disbelievers. He came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and and

00:32:20--> 00:32:45

obey been hunted. It was already been hunted. He came in he dropped a bone before the messenger sallallahu Sallam and he said Romo and Rebecca up Javi Amin. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you claim to say your Lord can revive his bones after it has been shattered and disintegrated and how beautifully Allah replies What are by Lenin masala when I see

00:32:47--> 00:32:47

Karna

00:32:48--> 00:33:33

Varma here amin what Bella Bella masala is giving us examples. What an audacity he forgot how he was created. He forgot how he was created. Hello people insane I mean no prefer for either ha ha sido muy bien. Allah says I created him from a fluid. And today he is so arrogant that he's denying my existence. You know, when you do for your child, and then your child questions you as a parent, you want the earth to split? Because you know what you've invested in this child and it's like dad, but where's the logic but who told you you know, I often mentioned that English quotation. They say just when you realize your dad was correct, you have a son in your house who thinks you incorrect?

00:33:35--> 00:34:12

chess when you realize chess when you realize you evolve you mature you go through the motions of life, and then you come to that point of maturity now my old man wasn't blowing hot air.

And you're not

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

correct.

00:34:14--> 00:34:20

So anyway, Wonder ella vomica noon Suharto, Malik suhaila.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala assembles the bones. Like Allah says in another verse of the Quran, I accessible in Cernan. I learned Niger Mali Varma does man think we cannot assemble his bones by la casa de la la No, so we have banana. Nay instead leaving on bones we will assemble his finger terps

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

unless he's what individual

Boom, boom, either going to Robin in Luffy hunting

00:35:08--> 00:35:20

environment in Luffy hunting Jedi. Are they astonished over life after death? Tell them oh Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam their astonishment is astonishing.

00:35:23--> 00:35:33

There are stars like What's there to be astonished about? Why does Allah say, Allah repeatedly says in kunafa Lee, you're not going to do that we're going to do it

00:35:34--> 00:36:30

in another verse of the Quran because Allah repeatedly impresses upon us. Allah says after a person dies cool kuno Hey, Jonathan. Oh howdy da. Allahu Akbar. Oh, hello, my Yakubu rofi sudo recon. Take that human and put him in a tomb put him in stone, cold kuno hija rotten Oh Ha dee da or put him in steel or making something else in which the return of life by your naive understanding is more remote and impossible than to Allah will creative and resurrect him for Surya una mejor a Dona? Then they will say who will resurrect us give them the answer. Gunilla de Fatah como el Amara, the one who created you the first time so we have these words we have father Samajwadi, will we have Holly

lovely awesome okay I'll give you the benefit of the doubt you saying that life will happen for so you can reduce your heartbreak una Russa whom is stanza and una moto who alright so when will it happen? Allah has a una kariba kalasa in yagoona kariba it's highly possible that that day is very close the Omega drogen when Allah will summon you for the stage a boon to be handy, and you all will respond by praising him. And that is why the scholars say that prior to our arrival on Mother Earth, everyone praise the law. And after our death on the day of Yama, everyone will praise Allah, the real virtue is to praise Allah in this worlds

00:37:38--> 00:38:21

unless to become carlu Bella, Bella, Bella, before we came here last as everyone said, of course, and on the day of the Yama Yama, Allah will summon you call you fantastic g Bona be handy. Everyone will respond by praising Allah. But the real thing is, the real thing is in this world to praise Allah, because this is where we have all these optical illusions and delusions. This is where our views and our gaze is obscured and it's blocked off. There's something something bothering my vision, there's something camouflage in my vision. So I'm assuming this I consider this and that is why it's camouflage. So this is the time people attribute praises to anyone and everyone. Anyway, a

00:38:21--> 00:39:06

lot reminds us of his absolute power and might thereafter Allah speaks again of another incident of the mighty and the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala or if Carla Ibrahim or be a de facto Hailey Mota, when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said Oh my Lord, show me how you will revive the disease. Now just look at what what is mentioned in biannual Quran. So Allah says our lm to mean, don't you believe, don't you trust? Don't you rely on Ibrahim Hackman Omar writes that of course there can be no doubt that the question of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam did not stem from any degree of doubt. But due to the possibility of a man of limited understanding, questioning Ibrahim alayhis Salam xquery to Allah.

00:39:06--> 00:39:13

That why did Ibrahim asked us did he lacked faith. So Allah asked him to Ibrahim to remove that misconception

00:39:16--> 00:39:57

that Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, of course had absolute conviction. But when he asked this people with limited understanding, they're gonna say that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam asked a lot of the irony, so did it mean he lacked faith? So Allah asked it to Ibrahim not to question Ibrahim, but to explain to us the Prime Minister made absolutely clear a primary Salam had absolutely utterly Tara William Tobin kala, Bella, Bella Bella, absolutely. Well, I can leave in Nickleby, for that added level of amazing absolute total, holistic conviction, oh my Allah. And again, what did Allah show and teach Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Carla has about a minute or Ibrahim take for birds of your

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

choice, right. The scholars have mentioned it was told

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

It was hamama it was the Georgia different Some say it was a peacock was a pigeon was a chicken, etc etc take these four birds for hoonah la familiarize them draw them close domesticate them so you identify them you know exactly when when Allah tala told satana masala Salam when Allah was going to show him the the miracle the scholars say two things. First Allah asked him what Metallica mean aka Musa Musa, what's in your hand and he Salam. So once it gets converted to a law makes it into a the terms and converts the stuff into a snake, then probably in the first instance he could think No, no, I was holding the snake. So that is why Allah said almost what's in your hand. So he said it's a

00:40:45--> 00:40:55

stuff. Then Allah rehearse the whole thing with him. Because the scholars say among many other wisdoms is that when he drops it, then Pharaoh is going to run muscle mass and run.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

He understands the whole system.

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

So Moosa, what's this? No, no, it's a steak. It's the stuff. It's the stuff, massages, it's the stuff. Right? That is why when he dropped it down, then it became a snake. Then Allah tala told him who's the HA, HA HA, HA HA wanna have Musa gofly take it, you know you like

00:41:22--> 00:42:03

to have sanitary Doha sirata Hello Ola, we will return it to insert to its first state and first condition. So take the four birds, familiarize yourself with them, and then slaughter them. And then you can mix the bones and the flesh and the feathers. And then you put it on four different hills put it on four different hills, right, there's no trace of anything. The DNA of one is mixed with the other the flesh of one is mixed with the other the anatomy of one is with the other, completely mix it up. So Maduro Hoon, at na casa and they just call them out on the order of Allah subhanho wa Taala they will gather they will assemble. They will form together and they will come run into you

00:42:03--> 00:42:50

and let it be known to you or Ibrahim into the world. And Allah Aziz Allah has absolute mighty Hakeem but he's full of wisdom. So Allah knows when he will show and reveal these kind of examples to us. So the other man say it is correct to use the analogy to say from a medical perspective, there's no hope from the apparent there's no hope that you cannot say in the front from the power of Allah, there's no hope. That's fine to say medically speaking, there's no hope. But you say in the power of Allah is no hope. No, no. What kinda aku boo Yah, Mo and Leah Sacco throne. A llama will Hassan Ali nadwi writes that jacoba is an Ambien and viola. He knew that despondency given up hope

00:42:50--> 00:42:56

was tantamount to disbelief. Yeah, Benny. Abu Fattah has said to me usofa

00:42:57--> 00:43:23

assumere rohilla in Hola. So rohilla ilco Monica furon. Imagine this and I just Marvel and this is the conviction of a newbie, right? So use of alayhis salaam jacoba salam is crying for his son. He's lost his son his crying, crying, crying making door making dog and in the interim, he's not reunited with use of but he loses his second son.

00:43:25--> 00:43:31

And when he loses his second son, the third son said I'm not I don't have guts to go back to my father. So the third one stays away.

00:43:33--> 00:44:02

Can you imagine the gravity and the colossal nature of this desk? Karla kabiru home in general illa abiko kulu abana in novena cassara go to your father and say that listen, your son has stolen your son has stolen and he also the scholars have mentioned something very amazing when they wanted use of to come with them. Then they didn't say oh our father send your son Ursula Anna ohana.

00:44:04--> 00:44:44

ohana. ohana. Our brother, my brother, my bro my sibling. You know what we together robothink Lambton it will knock the Arabic proverb you have many brothers is just that your mother didn't give birth to them. Meaning there are many people in the world that are so kind and good to you. They very much like a brother. It's just that you don't share a common biological parent. So at that time, the tone was our cinema Anna ahana sent our brother noctel we will get additional to wait for him we're in Allah who the half moon and we will protect him and when things were over, and now the brother was implicated in Nibbana cassara in novena cassara your son stole you know, I often say

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

this year when when the youngster comes home and he's got a nice report and the wife is like how was My boy man? How's my son man? That's my boy. And then when the youngster got up to some shenanigans and some people of the community came I don't know it must be your son doing some nonsense.

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

Looking for you again. So anyway as long as he signs moolah

00:45:07--> 00:45:45

so mother oni Tina Casa de la la la, la la has his own Hakeem. Then Allah reminds us of how he can reward us how he can compensate us. I cry at the sometimes it takes us to have unpleasant encounters with fellow humans to appreciate the benevolence and the mercy and the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes if you've heard a beloved, and see how long it takes you to re to win their confidence, then you will realize how merciful allies

00:45:47--> 00:46:27

many people who are close if you've heard them, they can forgive you. But you'll get the taunt. You'll get the hint. You'll get the remark, you will get some sarcasm. Allah subhanho wa Taala says and I just cry at this hadith. Allah says, Oh my servant, lo beloved Lulu Baka Nana sama semester furutani if your sins were to reach the skies, right that we've heard this Hadith, then you repent to me, I will forgive you. But that that is there and that's amazing. And that's great. But the words of the narration that really make me to one are Bali. Well now Oh, Bali. If I have to give a loose trans I'll forgive you and I won't rave about it.

00:46:28--> 00:46:45

I won't rave about it. I want you to it wouldn't mean anything to me. I just forgive and forget and it's done and it's gone. And it's over. In fact, in Romani, I don't know absolutely the authenticity of the narration, but the ease and duration mentioned there in Surah Toluca, that.

00:46:47--> 00:46:53

The lamenting of the centers sometimes impresses me more than the glorification of the pious,

00:46:55--> 00:47:15

the lamenting of this and so Allah This is every one long hoodoo fuddling of him, while long who wants it when Allium Allah can give in abundance, Allah can give in great quantity. And there's different examples given here. However, Allah says, give any amount, the concluding verses of the first Jews, Allah says,

00:47:16--> 00:47:26

may have other law who the other become in Shackleton, what will Allah achieve by punishing you, if you grateful? The scholars say how much you be grateful for our mentor?

00:47:27--> 00:47:28

You bring him on.

00:47:29--> 00:48:16

And Allah concludes the verse by saying, What can Allahu Shakira nilima Whoa, whoa, I am very grateful. And I am aware of everything. There isn't a bean who appreciates more than a lot. In my early years when I did not travel so often. So then you could bring gifts every time you go, because you're not traveling so often. But when you're traveling so often, you know, it's like, now it's cumbersome to every time you bring, but I'm giving a general analogy. You often go out of your way to buy something for a family member, that family member is not cognizant of what you had to contend with in purchasing that article. Sometimes when my wife travels with me, and then she's unable to

00:48:16--> 00:48:53

keep to a strict diet, and I'm like you did a two day travel. And now you know what we cheating. And then you can imagine someone who has to travel all the time, it's extremely difficult. You want to appease people, it's different hours time zones, program, scholars are invited together, etc, etc. Anyway, in all that year, you tend to buy something, it's it's snowing away there, and you're getting into a mall, and you're going from one place to another and finally you buy probably the jacket your spouse wants or your child wants, or a shoe or a watch or whatever it is. You you wrap it up, you hold it close me, you put that in your hand luggage, you put it in the cabin in front of

00:48:53--> 00:49:18

you while you're traveling even one minute so one minute, I'll be with you, I'll be with you. I'll be with you. You take pride you take passion, you open it up, I'll be with you Just Just a moment. You come into customs you read in your relevant doors, you're really excited, you're anxious, you're building up anxiety, and you come home and you're presented with all this aspiration. What all that you had to do and I don't like the color words,

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

my word

00:49:23--> 00:49:32

and there isn't a good action that you intend to do. Leave alone executed, but that may Allah begins rewarding you.

00:49:34--> 00:49:59

There isn't a noble action that you only embark you only intend. What can Allahu Shakur Allah says I appreciate the bows, the narration of cancelar Amal in Allahu Allah you will know committeeman and hope. Allah Subhan Allah Jana. Allah is so appreciative that because of one muscle, Allah will enter three people in general we

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

One is the man who earns and brings the food home. The second is the wife who prepares the sandwich. And the third is the Muslim servant. One hardiest lady, you know will will miskeen who takes the sandwich and gives it to the beggar three hands involved in that sandwich reaching the beggar Allah the Hadith of the messenger syllogism Allah will forgive all three and granddam john on the day of the AMA. That is why I often say the first bounty that the dwellers of general will enjoy is greater than the greatest bounty of this world. The beginning the entry the element at the beginning stages like you just entered gender the status of Ghana is something that this world in its entirety cannot

00:50:41--> 00:50:53

give to the king or to a child or to anyone, when they will enter into gentlemen lawmakers amongst them what will be the first thing we'll call hamdulillah. Hill as the as the Hubba annelle has an

00:50:54--> 00:51:42

all handlers is so nice, there's no sadness and no depression. Can anybody in this world say I'm free from sadness or depression and even at the point of retirement, there's nothing like that, because even if you are, you know, not actively working or whatever it is, the events around you inevitably they take strain on you. That is how we are that is how we are and then they will say interrupt Bana la foon Shaku Our Allah has really forgiven and he is so appreciative. Look at what he's done for us. Yeah, we don't deserve this. And there's innovation of that they will ask Allah that allow us to prostrate to renew our gratitude and our servitude. Anyway, Now Allah says, and

00:51:42--> 00:51:59

this is very deep, I really beg of your undivided attention, respected listeners, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is prepared to give us a lot. Even if it's simple, what kind of Allah Who shall Allah appreciates? a beggar might refuse a cent, but Allah doesn't refuse a cent.

00:52:00--> 00:52:33

Nowadays, they might refuse, even then, I must tell you this on a lighter note, I returned from UK, like probably about two months ago. So I had some coins in my pocket. So I had some local currency, and I had some pounds as well. So I stopped at the traffic light as I was entering into lands, and one of the beggars who know me from time to time we try and assist. He came to me running, and he's waving me, etc. So I put my hand in my pocket. I took out the coin, and I gave it to him, not realizing I gave him a bone.

00:52:35--> 00:52:39

Anyway, the next day I happened to pass he comes running to me. And he says,

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

The money you give me

00:52:43--> 00:52:45

that one is only for Port Elizabeth.

00:52:46--> 00:53:19

Queen Elizabeth, Elizabeth. So immediately I realized what had happened and I just enjoyed the laughter and the chuckle that you know what, in his innocent way, what he was trying to say is you know, this money don't work is only for Port Elizabeth, only humans can put in less effort and use it as a no worries. And I just gave him a five grand or two grand or whatever it is. So a beggar might refuse your coin. Allah will not refuse your donation. But this is what the lie is telling us. Yeah. Coloma rufen, hi, Roman Salatin yet

00:53:21--> 00:54:06

rather say your current word, if you're going to spend and destroy that spending by reminders of your generosity, or by impressing upon the recipient that I've done you a favor and you're lucky because of me, etc, etc. Now listen to this analogy, because this gives me a shiver in my back and I often coated in many of my humble talks. Let me first give you a a translation of the ayah and then a commentary and then we contextualize it. So Allah says, which is Hamza is different. What do you what do you desire? Right? What do you what do like Allah says, Johan de Mogi de Mola? Yes, Teddy Managua, beyond me even be Benny wasa. Hey, Betty, he was he was assuming that he let a woman fill

00:54:06--> 00:54:49

out the Jimmy. When a person is desperate, then he starts offering greater commitments. So if you're not so sick, and you have to go to a cardiologist or you need to go to a specialist, what is the standard right now? No, it's fine. I'll wait for an appointment in the state hospital. It's okay. But listen, it's desperate. It's life and death. It's threatening. It's a 72 hour thing. Get me an appointment when any doctor Listen, it's a 2000 flat. Even if you say 2000 pounds, who cares? Get me the appointment. I was once in in LA Los Angeles. I was spending Ramadan in California and then I flew down to LA for a program. And I won't forget the brother is passed on May Allah give him

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

gender. And he was a brother from a neighboring state in Africa and he had flown down because they had made some diagnosis on him. And it was quite life threatening. And he had come down for three inches

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

actions, and each injection was given take 40,000 rands

00:55:06--> 00:55:46

three injections, but they had promised the world in those three injections, three consecutive days three injections, notwithstanding the flight, the travel expenses, and he was happy to do it. He was happy to do it, that this is desperation. And what's the desperation on the day of the AMA? Allah says Yo, what do from the word word they just crossed my mind so I'm sharing the sinner and the criminal will be so desperate that he will ask Allah Allah free me from hell and this is what I have to offer you. I have my son, my wife, my children, my family, my extended family and everyone who inhabited Mother Earth a lot please throw them and hurl them into hell and just save me.

00:55:47--> 00:56:32

Number one, they're not going to accept the offer. They're not gonna do it like you know Yeah, okay, now my dad my father go It's fine. Yeah, I'm fine. Nobody's gonna do that. But just to explain Yeah, what Madeira Malawi and low low if he can. So anyone Allah says up? Yeah, what do I do home low Yamato Alfa Sana, Allah says many of these people have the boat. They are who they desire to be given a life of 1000 years. And what does Allah say? Even if they were given 1000 years one man who will be Moses, he may not be in your armor. It's not going to save you from the punishment even if you were to be granted the extension in life. But let's get to the audio so we can understand it.

00:56:32--> 00:56:41

It's really amazing. Does anyone have you desire and takuna who agenda to mean nothing, but that he has some vineyards.

00:56:42--> 00:57:09

Now he has a date bombs. He has date bombs. He has an orchard he has date bombs in it and now he has vineyards. The dream in tactical and hard beneath which rivers are flowing the goofy hum in Cali thammarat besides the date bombs besides the vineyards in his orchard, he has practically everything else you can think of wishful hope for he has a host of plantation and vegetation etc.

00:57:10--> 00:57:30

Now, look at the profound and this can only be divine This can only be divine human only you cannot think this yep Allah give the example. Ouattara de la mesilla Rosalyn fee Shoraka Natasha kissoon Rajan Salama Raja lista de Anima, Salah Alhamdulillah Allah

00:57:31--> 00:58:16

and Allah gives an example of a person a slave who's owned by multiple masters. But those masters Mata Sharky Suna not motorcylce una mutually amongst themselves, they obstinate, they stubborn, they not. They don't peacefully reconcile. So there is one slave he is owned by five people and these five masters are stubborn and obstinate, and each one of them is like listen to a clock you pick up my son from school, the other one is two o'clock and you come to my office. The third one is two o'clock I need to see you there. You know I have some garden work. Now can you imagine the misery of the life of this slave who has five masters and they don't mutually rotate it? That's why the Quran

00:58:16--> 00:58:33

said Baba Allahu methanogen feeding Shoraka Mutasa kishon number one, this Shoraka number two them with a shaky soon. It's complex enough if you have multiple masters, and it only becomes more complex if they mutually stubborn. Why don't you learn Solomon Lee Roger,

00:58:34--> 00:59:19

Roger, Roger, and one slave has one master only. He's got to answer to one he's got to please one he's got to impress one. Hello, Mr. biani masala. Can this two examples be the same? Can the life of these two be the same? Alhamdulillah All praise belongs to Allah. The scholars asked what is the context of Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Allah verbi has the hill unfurl. All praise belongs to Allah have given us such an example. So that's the example of a person who has multiple gods or deities or whose life is subjected to impress and appease multiple people. I want my neighbor to be happy, I want my wife to be happy. I want my partner I want my boss I want everybody and each one is you know

00:59:19--> 00:59:27

what, taking apart a chunk of the pie, and the other one is driven only by the pleasure of Allah. So I'm just saying something and qualify

00:59:28--> 00:59:51

the life of the one who's got one to please, that's such a peaceful life, I only have to answer to one. And that's the life of a believer. We are not driven to please our wives and our parents and our neighbors and the community and the oma at large independently. These are offshoots of the dictates of our love with Allah.

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

This is the obligation Hence, the love of Allah will govern the

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

boundaries to which we will please them.

01:00:04--> 01:00:20

So I need to please my wife because Allah told me but Allah told me this is the limit. And if my wife is asking me something beyond, then Allah Tony's Habib sallallahu wasallam Lima to hurry mama Allah Allahu la cabeza de Muro bata as logic.

01:00:22--> 01:00:32

Rahim Allah listen do not make something forbidden like honey which Allah has made lawful for you in the quest of appeasing your honorable consorts.

01:00:33--> 01:01:15

So I want to please my wife and my children, but not as an independent form not separate is because Allah told me that my love to align is incomplete until I don't love my wife and my children and my parents. But Allah says love will govern Listen, my son, I love you, but now what you ask him is impermissible. Now, if you upset tough love, that doesn't bother me because I know my Allah is not angry with me. So when levena Armando I should have been Lila that is what's mentioned there as well. Anyway, this man enjoys all these privileges. lofi Hammond colissimo just look at this man. I don't know how to say this my mind just, you know, shuts down and I don't know how to inwards and

01:01:15--> 01:02:07

capsulate the profound nature of Quran what a Saba hookipa Allah says all eight sets in so he becomes age he aged, his becomes frail, probably become senile, becomes weak, etc. Now, when the who do return to alpha you know in one of my teachers used to always impress on us for either for what you'd look at, look at the benefit of each child and each condition. Allah said he had vignette Allah said he had date bombs Allah said he had everything else there and then old age set in and when old age set in at that time, he had small children he had the Ria he had children but they were weak they were dependence and just when it was like time now to retire because I'm old and age and I

01:02:07--> 01:02:54

can take my package I can look after my kids for a sabaha saw this orchard was struck by a when in which they were flames there was this world when that came there was this tornado that came there was this gusty winds that blew and and indeed they will flames faster rocket any burn the entire orchard cattolica you bet you know la hola como. In this manner? does Allah explain his vs. La La con Tata for Kuru, so that you may reflect now what is being conveyed, hear my respected and esteemed listeners and probably I know many people would want to fall off to sleep, it's late, etc. But I asked you don't shut your receiver or don't switch off here. This is key and I want you and

01:02:54--> 01:03:34

myself to understand the great message Ally's conveying to us. I said to you in the beginning of this ayah, Allah is ready to reward you way beyond that action, provided you don't destroy that action. You do it correctly with excellence and sincerity and don't destroy it. And that's the message in this ayah by extension of the hadith of Bokhari under the strength of Abdullah nabasa delana, which Romani has also referenced. So let's first understand the context briefly. And then, you know, apply it into our lives. So can we imagine the regret of this man, you have this you invest in your planning, you're waiting for your investments to mature, and just when it's time to

01:03:34--> 01:04:20

mature when you old, that's the time it's destroyed. Now, the scholars say, if your investments and your orchard was destroyed, and you were young, you will still regret it. But you can roll your sleeves up and start fresh. But here the Quran said asaba will keep you old, you're done. You're hunched, Your days are over. You did it in your prime time. Now you cannot work that that that 50 hour week or you can't put that 18 hours a day and seven days a week in your prime you needed to gather you needed to buy you needed to amass you needed to anchor yourself, you had that drive, you could do that. I seen people in New York in particular and other places working two shifts.

01:04:20--> 01:04:39

Literally, I met them and we spent night together. It's like you come back, you leave at five o'clock in the morning, you come back at six o'clock, and then you sleep again for like three, four hours and you start a second shift at 12 o'clock, till three o'clock and then you're back again. And like That's how life carries on and it's seven days a week.

01:04:41--> 01:04:59

So now I understand this year, you lost your only asset and it happened at the time when you were old. That's one regret. The second challenge is if you lost your only investment, but it was only you. You can still make peace with it. You know what? It's only me we don't

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

have kids, the old lady is gone. All right, I'll not eat the hand to mouth and just pass my remaining days. I was flying back from Amsterdam. And there was an elderly couple. So they sat down and they were asking me,

01:05:13--> 01:05:52

you know, are you from South Africa? I said, Yes. He said, we're going to Cape Town and we heard a lot about it. I said, Capetown is amazing. It's brilliant. But I must forewarn you that unfortunately, as much as I am patriotic to my country, crime is not good here. And safety is of serious concern. So they like we already at five. And even if we are not victims of crime, how long will we live? And we really want to see Capetown, you know? So I said, Wow, that's amazing. That's amazing. I salute your, your, your approach to life. You know, that's so so nice towards life. Like we 85 we had a good Indians. By the way. I was reading this. I was flying now. And okay, let's let's

01:05:52--> 01:06:33

just keep the focus. Yeah. So anyway, they came and they said, life is so short. So we, you know, we 85 we had a good innings. Even if we fall prey to a victim of crime, it's okay, at least we got to see our dream. So what is your orchard is burned. And you are old. So the one scenario is not old. So the regret is not so bad. You said you're not I I burned my fingers. I fell in the hole, but I have to live bounce back. I'm resilient enough. I've come up again. And I've opened up something. You know what, I've got a plan and I'm recovering. I'm recuperating. I'll be there. I'll be there. But now you own. So you cannot strategize. The second thing is you're old and you don't have

01:06:33--> 01:06:48

children. So you can still make peace with it. The third scenario is you old and you lost your object and you have children, but they not return to alpha. They are cheban aquia.

01:06:50--> 01:07:36

They are at attune. Acquia they strong young youth. So it's a you know what whole life I worked. I worked I lost what it is. But nevermind, my kids said Papa, just leave it now we'll take care of you. So that's also one week we in Durban, then we go Dubai. Then my daughter called me in London. Then my son in law said Mama was a tie. So we going to Allah reward para Makana hacia and we carried on. So you lost it, you regret it. But you had cushions to fall on. Understand the analogy of Quran understand the analogy you had. But you're the Quran says you lost your only investment. You're too old to do anything. And you have children. And these children are weak. As a parent, whoever is out

01:07:36--> 01:08:17

there will identify with me, you can go hungry, but you cannot see your children go hungry. This this this is how Allah has made us. This is our and this is where I salute woman. I've seen my mom and I've seen my wife. And of course I'm sure it applies to every other female there. If there's a point where we pay salute and credit to them. It's amazing how a woman will work and toil and prepare that if our and fast like we are fasting, but sit down and probably one of us already done with our meals. One of the boys are getting off. And they said how do you say let me say to you, sister, the reward is immense. Right? I know my time is running Forgive me. But today's last day. So

01:08:17--> 01:08:55

I trust you will have a greater levels of tolerance towards my extension of time. that a person a woman came back in by Sharia law. And she had two daughters with her. And I showed her the Alanna had three pieces of date. And she gave the dates to each one. So the mother took one and the daughter took one and the other daughter took one and the daughters ate the date up. And just when the mum was about to eat the date, the daughters looked at the mother in envy facade, that harness failed. And the mother split the one date in half and she gave half and she gave half there. And it shattered the Alon was moved to tears by this. And then when the messengers a lot is from Kevin said

01:08:55--> 01:09:37

only be over LA, I seen an amazing thing. And this is what happened. And there is a lot of some said like $1 radical agenda. Because of that act of kindness, Allah accepted it and granted the mother agenda. So as the parent, it's very difficult. And unlike Allah make it easy for those in war torn zones where we unfortunately a parent has to see his own child, his own child. I I've said this in many of my talks last year in Ramadan, when we were in Jordan at the border, and we were, you know, distributing some aid for Syrian refugees. And I have a vivid recollection of this year. And we went to one particular camp and redistributed aid. And then the sister came out and she took the aid and

01:09:37--> 01:10:00

he took the he brought with her her son and the son must have been give or take 11 years old, and then the mother teared, and as she cried, she removed the right hand of the Sun because it was prosthetic and the left leg of the Sun because it was artificial. And she broke down and tears just trickle down in my eyes. And I didn't know how to look at

01:10:00--> 01:10:38

to her, because she's looking for courage and support. And I don't know how to give her support. And she speaks to me in Arabic and the local brother. And she says, if there's anyone who's ready to donate the hand of my son, because it's prosthetic, it now needs some modification as he's growing, because it's an artificial lung, right? When you do a transplant and the body rejects it, you need to take chronic medication to suppress that organ because it's a foreign object in the body. Doctors will tell you, and of course, this is artificial, but it needs modification as the child is grown on etc. So if the doctors my word, my word, I'm looking at this mother, she herself is in an absolute

01:10:38--> 01:11:04

state of poverty, but more concern almost, if she could detach her own hand and give it to her child, she would have done it. So the Quran says this is the analogy. You lost your own investment. You old, you cannot work you have children that are weak, and this is the time you lost it. Can the words of any language and capsulate the extent of regret that will grip the heart of this man?

01:11:06--> 01:11:54

And this is what the Quran says, On the day of the Yama your desperation to harvest your good deeds will be greater than this old man to harvest his fruits from his origins. If you destroyed your good deeds, your regret will be much worse than this old man because there's no return to this world. Nobody wants to borrow you a good action. Nobody wants to give you an action latos law today enough soon enough since a while Are you prepared to mean Harsha? What are you mean? Haha Dylan wallonian Sauron. Right, the common ways through which you aid, intercede, held ransom, etc. Those things will not be found. So the other my right and this is mentioned in the hadith of Bokhari as well, that by

01:11:54--> 01:12:30

extension, this is the condition of every such man who destroys any good action that he performed. When you perform a good action. The context of the idea is about infant spending. But beyond that, the hadith of Abdullah Abbas in Buhari any good action, whether you destroy it, because it's tainted income, because you remind the recipient, you know, satana imaginable hanifa Rahim Allah, he would not take shade from the shelter or the roof of a person whom he borrowed money to.

01:12:31--> 01:12:56

And people asked him why he said no, because I've done him a favor and I don't want to take back any benefit from him. It mustn't constitute the type of interest. And I leave you on this note, I leave you on this note and Allah puts the narration in my mind and it is in Hakeem that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu used to liberate slaves amongst his many, many silent deeds, many, many silent deeds.

01:12:57--> 01:13:23

I want to mention something young. Just two days ago, one brother came to me and he said this year and I'm gonna take the liberty of saying this year, and I believe it is the greatness of the person who did it. And hence Allah brought the message to me and I want to say it a great stalwart of our country. A great legend of our country, a great son of our country from a very noble family was none other than the great share Harlem start manana Qasim Ali Rahmatullah LA.

01:13:24--> 01:14:10

A brother came to me two days ago, probably he's listening in and I say this so that he can motivate others. He said, some person had passed on, and the disease in his state had written that after my death from a third of my state, I want these 23 gold coins krugel coins to be given to Maulana Qasim Ali, who was alive Of course at that time. So the son of the disease phoned monana himself Rahmatullah Lee now and said, Listen, my dad has passed on this is his request, and we will be coming to deliver this among to you. So he says, Okay, if you insist and so be it. When will you be coming? He said tomorrow at 10 o'clock. This brother two days ago narrated to me. He said mana

01:14:10--> 01:14:23

phoned me and he said, a person has passed on. And he has gifted me 23 gold coins. The son is going to deliver this to me at 10 o'clock, five plus 10 you come and collect it and distribute it.

01:14:25--> 01:14:44

Well, I made me tear. This is the likes of our cellar for Sally him. He said 10 o'clock the children came and delivered five past 10 I was there. The man didn't question me. I took it. We then took it to a jeweler got the cash out and distribute it and help so many people.

01:14:46--> 01:14:56

Today he didn't remain but he's action remain what the demands are Shafi Rahmatullah say? God matakohe Moon Mamata mockery Mohan?

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

What Anisha Coleman wahoo fitness

01:15:00--> 01:15:38

Number two, some people have died a physical death. But the good actions have kept their name alive even after the demise. And other people are physically alive, but the world are praying for their death. So what were the words of Rebecca vilano he was liberating slaves. So his father who have a generation of hacking, and it's also referenced in well lately, the yaksha. His father, buco hoffa was not a Muslim at that time, he accepted Islam at a very late stage and said, Listen, my son, I don't understand this kindness of yours, you're just helping people liberating and then you don't get any back any reward from them to yourself one favor and do me a favor, because these people are

01:15:38--> 01:16:17

poor, and they don't have any economic muscle. At least select those slaves and liberate them who are strong, who are muscular. So at least by virtue of your liberation, they morally and ethically obligated to help you protect you they can be like your bodyguards and your bounces. Because they don't have money. And you've been like Mr. Generous, his father was a no Muslim at that time. So he couldn't identify with it. He couldn't identify. You know, what is this? Yeah, and this is the spirit of a believer believer gives 1000 10s of 1000s You know, we're anywhere else you want to full receipt, etc. And of course, transparency is vital and integral, but that's it, you're given it into

01:16:17--> 01:16:20

into the hair on hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:16:21--> 01:16:46

So his father said, liberate strong and muscular slaves. And what did said Nava karate. alano say, he said, Oh, my dad, I consciously look to liberate such slaves, in whom I do not see the remote possibility of any form of reciprocation so that I can take my full reward from Allah on the day of the AMA.

01:16:47--> 01:17:24

You know, today we say no help him but you never know tomorrow demand is a minister. Yeah, you know, don't don't ignore the man. You know what things are changing. You don't know the cabinet. There'll be a shuffle in the cabinet especially it's precarious as they say, you know what anything can happen. So you helping a man with the benefit, and this has been one of the commentaries referred to in this ayah oma is a to medullary bollier bofi, unworldliness, if Allah, Allah, Marshall, Quran, some Rama have taken it this way. He's talking, he's getting married, given a gift. Tomorrow our son get married, they'll give according to their son we give according to our level, ours is 1000

01:17:24--> 01:18:15

they'll give 1000 euros. So you're not really doing a kind gesture. You're actually setting a tone of moral obligation for them to reciprocate. So almost like a bartering system almost. You're trying to capture and secure No no. Ilana said I try to help people in which I have no form of potential possibility of return. And Allah revealed averse ormally a hiding window mini amounting to Jessa elaborate de la Vega here a big law that is kindness is driven by the passion to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. On that note, I conclude and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that these few nights that we had had this joint discussion to our listeners and viewers and scholars and alumni in the

01:18:15--> 01:18:58

studio, and across the different regions and continents and countries that people have been listening in, I hope, wish and pray that insha Allah, this will be a source of our closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the source of our forgiveness and our burden, and it will arouse within us the curiosity to embark on this journey to open up the treasures of the Quran. There was so much that was discussed on the aspect of the Salah his Salaam and so much wanted to touch on it. But lo and behold, time did not support me and hence we could not indulge in that discussion. But if Allah wills then for a different time inshallah we could discuss that as well. barakallahu li walakum wa
