Live from the law of SWAT was salam ala Rasulillah while early he was suffering a woman Wallah. Along with become Cena when we got a swapping out or we can Apphia or we can image what you like and mostly I'm saying know what I'm saying we're equally learning on behind me along the NNSA Luca how you know how the Leila Fatah when I saw her when you grow her well the rocket Wahida when are the big coming Shadi Murphy who was shot the Madonna was present I bless you all better coffee come for taking the time the effort to study the speech of Allah subhanaw taala we are lost would have to continue utilizing all of us for the betterment of our communities, our families, and even within

00:00:35--> 00:01:22

ourselves alone that I mean, I pray that you're all in good health and good faith deserve more here and what we will be doing tonight Inshallah, we'll continue with the Tafseer of the surah Trojan, if you recall last session we discussed the first 15 ayat of surah Trojan and then we mentioned that these two are the references to the conversations of the believing Muslims amongst the jinn, those who heard the Quran for the first time and believed in it. And somehow there's a lesson in that itself. And we reflect here on how the previous Surah we heard about Prophet knew of Hadees Sudan giving Dawa for 950 years 950 years giving Dawa to people calling people to worship God. And he did

00:01:22--> 00:02:02

not give up he persevered. And in fact, he did not there's no despair when it comes to Dawa. Especially when it comes to the messengers, rather the myths, the mission itself came to an end as we mentioned, if you recall with Tafseer, sort of newer, that Allah subhanaw taala informed your Hadith Salam, at a certain point that sits nobody else will become a believer after that. So the mission ended because of that his mission was done after 950 years. And the reflection here is what's the links between these two, you have people who are rejected for 950 years. For 950 years, they rejected the message of God they rejected Prophet and ohada his setup and Subhanallah we have a

00:02:02--> 00:02:39

reflection here in terms of the believing jinn. They heard the Quran for the very first time and they became Muslims immediately they believed in it, accepted it and even called the other people to follow it to follow the speech of Allah subhanaw taala the first time they heard the Quran, whereas 950 years that people have no Hadith and those who disbelieve, were not affected by all the signs, all the miracles, all clear evidence is the Dawa as well, to worship Allah Subhana Allah to change for the better. And the reflection for us here today is that some of us and many people in general have been listening to the message of Allah Subhana Allah this is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:39--> 00:03:17

Kalam Allah, listening to the message of the Quran for a long time, and still they refuse to change, still, they refuse to move forward. And then there are those who hear one idea or they attend one lecture and immediately in that moment, they embrace change, they embrace transformation. And so here we're speaking about ourselves from multiple perspectives in terms of who you are. Because this is a story in other words, you're forming your own story with your actions, your story in terms of your character and your freewill and what you will be asked about in the next life, you're making these decisions constantly, and the things that help you for example, the Quran, the things that aid

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

you, for example, humility, sincerity, are the things that when a sign comes to you, you will find yourself Humbly accepting change, whereas the one who is not changing with all the Hadith, all the Quran, all the reminders, all the advice, religious family, your religious parents, religious community, access to knowledge, blessings from Allah Subhana Allah and they refuse to change for the better. There's something internal that is missing, may Allah protect us. It may be there is arrogance, there's rebellion, there's stubbornness, there's a misunderstanding about the religion or a mixture between religion and culture. There are many possible factors, but ultimately when the

00:03:51--> 00:04:27

Quran came to the jinn, and they believed in those amongst them who believed in it, it was that first re citation. And then you have people for 950 years refusing to change. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to take a lesson from this, that when you attend a lecture when you attend a class, when you see anything beneficial on social media, that first and foremost you ask yourself, how does this apply to me? And can I become a better person? Can I immediately change somewhere on our planet? Oh Allah, we hear and we obey. And this is true humility. This is true sincerity. May Allah subhanaw that allow us to take this lesson and act upon it as well. Allamani so let's continue with verses 16

00:04:27--> 00:04:36

to thee and inshallah Tada. Let's recite the ayat feel free to follow along with your own translation. Again, I recommend the clear for and for those interested as well. Sofia international coffee

00:07:13--> 00:07:53

going back to is 16 So we mentioned before the first 15 ayat are conversations from the believing gin and Allah subhanaw taala told us about what specific aspects regarding that meeting, what are the things that mattered most from those stories, so you did not have all the unnecessary details and in fact, this is one of the blessings of learning storytelling from the Quran, that you see how Allah subhanaw taala tells you about the things you need to progress to learn to implement. There is always a wisdom and a reason for why a detail is mentioned in the Quran for why a word is mentioned the Quran for why a specific let's say incident is mentioned with all of its facets in one place and

00:07:53--> 00:08:31

different details and a different perspective in another part of the Quran. There's always a wisdom behind it. Now here the speech changes now we're talking about the speech of Allah subhanaw taala meaning ALLAH does not coding the believing Jinn here rather we are addressing or Allah is addressing the people as well. What Allah we Stockholm or other party aquatalia is fina Houma and Rodolfo had those who denied the truth and they follow the right way. Allah subhanaw taala saying we would have certainly granted them abundant rain to drink. Why is rain mentioned here that Spiner Houma and Nevada remember sort of knew, and he said him, when he called to when he called his people

00:08:31--> 00:09:06

to worship Allah He said FabFilter stuff in order back on, seek forgiveness from Allah, repent to God and Allah will give you all that you want. So Allah Subhan, Allah will bring down the rain to human He will take care of your crops, he will stand down the rain that you need to become wealthy to survive to live. In other words, the abundance of water utilized here is a blessing. It's for the sustenance of life it's for for living on Earth. It's for the sustainment of Earth as well. You cannot have basically the most essential needs fulfilled without water in some capacity. Now some of the scholars say water here refers to not an order, not just literally water as normal all the long

00:09:06--> 00:09:44

run was at its provisions, its wealth, its risk and the whole world basically requires water in order to survive and to live or moderately low Han who remarked wherever there is water there is there is wealth and wherever there is wealth, there is corruption, meaning some people will utilize it for the wrong things. So this we can say in terms of the interpretation. This aligns with our last part data is telling us a party here will always talk on Allah Polycom in verse 16. This is referring to the right way of Allah subhanaw taala meaning of course the final messenger the final message from Allah is part of the Quran and this is the message of Islam so that a person does not

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

wonder verse 17 Lena for Tina home fee as a test for them so the water is given to them as a test meaning what it is a blessing. Everything you have in your life is a blessing for you and also a test. It is a test and we have to recognize this

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

When we think about what we have, rather than thinking about what we do not have, rather than looking at what other people have made a loss of Hannah Montana, protect us, psychologically, the person who always looks at what other people have, that they think I'm missing in my life, this person has it in her life or his life, that person will never be happy, that person will never be content with Allah subhanaw taala is decree upon with the risk that Allah put in your life as a test customized for you. This is your story. This is what you were given. Don't look at the story of someone else and say, Well, I'm not I don't find it fair that this person has more. Well, what about

00:10:34--> 00:11:05

the people of less? Have you considered that people have less than you the many people around the world who have less than you? And so the one who wants to look at the possessions of other people, we have a clear command from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, look at those who have less than you, they are less fortunate than you. In that case, you are less likely to become what angry you're less likely to become greedy, you're less likely to be attached to worldly things, you're less likely to be angry with Allah's decree, because you're not supposed to be you're supposed to be contented with what you have. And if you're not content, think about the billions of people who would wish to be in

00:11:05--> 00:11:43

your shoes. In other words, now when Allah Subhana Allah tells us Lena fina, home, the NFTL, meaning what it is a fitna, then of Tina home to test them through this risk through their provisions. The test is what are you grateful? Did you pass the test? You and I, we have so many tests every single day. Even if you're not taking university exam every day or high school or middle school or for any class, you are tested by Allah subhanaw taala with your very essence of living every single moment is a test for you your body? Are you utilizing it for the sake of Allah your time, your wealth, your home, your shelter, your friendships, your connections, your social media, access your internet

00:11:43--> 00:12:15

access, the time that you have with it, what are you utilizing it for your work your job, if you have a job, you're studies, if you're studying, if you're raising children, how are you raising your children or even grandchildren, there are so many different forms of tests, every single thing in your body is a test for you. Everything around you that you have is a test for you. And Allah reminds us so that we do not forget why we are here you are not here, let's say for pure fun and games just to chill just to kill time. Allah subhanho reminds us couldn't have seen that in portrait mode, every soul will depart will experience stuff. We know this, this is inevitable today, tomorrow

00:12:15--> 00:12:50

in 100 years, we're going to leave this world we don't belong to a dunya and dunya was given to us for a temporary time. We don't know how long in terms of the individual time and then you're gone. And that's just for working meaning striving to save up your good deeds for the day of compensation. This is the hard work before that final exam before that final moment in which you pass the exam inshallah Tada. So the passing of this exam is not on the Day of Judgment. It's passing throughout this life through every moment through every day, every day you wake up, you're given this exam. And Allah says after that not only will you depart, he reminds you so you don't get distracted and you

00:12:50--> 00:13:24

forget or you're chasing your wealth or you're chasing a corporate ladder, you're chasing relationships, focus on the thing that matters most what's given to you is a test for you. When a blue come to shove the will Heidi fitna, we will test you all with ease and difficulty as a trial for you. So if you're going through difficulty, go back to the site and remember, this is a test Am I passing the test? Or am I sitting back complaining about the test refusing to move on looking at other people out instead of accepting okay, I'm taking the test anyway, I might as well pass the test, what you lean towards your own losses and then to us you will return this isn't sorted mbN. So

00:13:24--> 00:14:00

when we think about the idea of being tested constantly, people who have wealth are tested and they are distracted. In many cases, people have jobs are tested and they are distracted. In many cases, people in relationships are tested, they are distracted. In many cases, people with children are tested, people without children are tested, people with grandchildren are tested, parents are tested, siblings are tested. So everyone is tested in some capacity in some way. The point here is don't fail the test that Allah subhanaw taala gave you through this blessing that you have, whether it's a book or it's a house or a car or a person does not matter what the test is, do not feel the

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

test that was given to you from Allah subhanaw taala through this particular blessing. And don't allow yourself to become so distracted by your wealth by your house, by your job, by your video game by social media, by shopping, whatever it may be. Don't allow yourself to be so distracted by this very test this material possession or even your loved ones to the extent that it's distracting you from the worship of Allah subhana wa. One time in a Hanako a young man was complaining about basically a first world problem. What was his first world problem? This was actually recently what was his first world problem as we have this HELOC on Zoom. His problem was he didn't have access to

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

a PlayStation five he was complaining because when it came out they were sold out every if you if you don't know what that is video game console, sold out everywhere said I couldn't get access to and he seemed really really upset. He said I've been trying to get one for a while and some people are buying two or three and then selling them for $1,000 and that's ridiculous. Like why why can I just get what I want?

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

And he's complaining he's very angry. You can tell he's very, very angry. He said he's been trying to buy a PS five for a long time. And subhanAllah one of his friends said that he was he was relating to him. He said, I'm in a similar situation, like, There's something I've been trying to get for a while. But I'm trying to save up and it's for a brand new car, he's driving a car that was like four or five years old. He's like, I just, I want a new car. I'm so sick of my car. So he's like, I want a new car. And subhanAllah they're talking about their struggles in this Hanako. And then later on somebody in the Halacha. It was his turn to bring up current events. And of course, he

00:15:32--> 00:16:07

brought up the Ogres are Muslim brothers and sisters in East Turkistan being killed, ethnically cleansed and so on and so forth a number of other things by the Chinese government for being what Muslim and he brought up as well, a situation that took place in Palestine. So he brought up these two current events, Sao Paulo, when he started talking about the augers in China and what they're going through, where, for example, a Muslim woman cannot even act like she's making dua. People cannot even show any symbol whatsoever or practice or action or words of Muslims and even the oil language. They're trying to wipe it out. It's ethnic cleansing and genocide to the greatest degree

00:16:07--> 00:16:39

in our times. And this is one of the worst atrocities that we can possibly experience in our lifetimes. May Allah relieve them? May Allah grant them justice, may Allah protect them, may Allah grant them shahada, those who die May Allah protect consider them shahada martyrs, and may Allah subhana utilize us to help them as well. Now as as the brother was talking about the details of the current events, what's happening in these camps, the brother who started talking earlier who started the Holocaust talking about his own, like, how are you all feeling what's going on? The one who is talking about the PS five, he got really emotional, really emotional. And then suddenly he turned

00:16:39--> 00:17:11

off his camera while we were on Zoom, he turned off his camera, his mic was muted, and he basically disappeared. He stayed as far as we know. He stayed in the meeting and the Hanako but he got really, really emotional. And later on Subhanallah I reached out to him what's going on bro? Everything okay, you just disappeared suddenly. He said he started crying. Like that was for him. That was the first time he started crying hearing about the situation of our brothers and sisters in East Turkistan. He said I started crying I realized like how, how spoiled I am how privileged I am. That I'm living in first of all living in the United States and blessed in so many ways, a lot of

00:17:11--> 00:17:43

comfort, a lot of convenience, his parents and so on so forth, supporting the family, everything's okay, they have food, they're not looking for food in trash bins, they're not looking and waiting for the next check just to barely afford like the next amount of food and the cheapest possible food is like we have a very comfortable lifestyle I have everything that I need is like I can't believe I was complaining in the beginning of Hanukkah about a PS five and are so angry. He's like I actually was very angry. And we have people who literally are dying because they cannot say or because they're trying to say Ilhan Omar, because they look much because they're all you're in their

00:17:43--> 00:18:19

identity. And of course, it's not just the Oilers, we have situations in America where people people are barely getting by. People are standing outside in the zero degree weather. I think most of you are in Michigan. But anywhere you are in the US right now. Subhanallah it's very cold. It's extremely cold, and we have a polar vortex coming up as well. There are people who do not have any shelter whatsoever. So he said I actually started crying for the first time from current news from current events. And I didn't realize how spoiled I was. I never saw this perspective until this moment. It's as though like something clicked for me. And so powerful. The reality is, if you attach

00:18:19--> 00:18:54

yourself so much to worldly comfort, if you get so comfortable with wealth, you get so comfortable with what you have. And you keep spending spending spending on dunya away things, worldly things, even when you don't really need them and you're excessive in your consumerist habits. It leads to a type of psychological attachment and also an entitlement. What's entitlement entitlement is one of the most destructive things we can have entitlement is one of the worst possible things a person can can hold on to this is when you think you are entitled to something guaranteed to have something in this world. And I don't mean to say here that we don't have rights or expectations or guarantees.

00:18:54--> 00:19:27

No, but when you think about entitlements and a dunya The reality is the more you think of yourself as entitled to certain things or certain lifestyles or certain ways of life or certain material wealth, whatever it may be, the more you think you are entitled that you deserve it for some reason, the more you will be disappointed in life, the more you will be attached to superficial things. And you'll find yourself talking about these superficial things while people are focusing on in the billions around the world and locally as well on the bigger picture on really serious issues. And I don't mean to say here that you cannot talk about things or you cannot ask for things or work for

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

solutions, of course, but there's a difference between searching for something and being sad about not having for example, a PS five, being sad about not having the brand new, the newest smartphone and being sad that your car is not a certain brand or your purse, or your clothes are not certain prestige status. Why? Because you're so attached to entitled entitlement in terms of your perspective, or a class in terms of your perspective on society or what you should have. You really and I include myself in this. We are not guaranteed anything in a dunya Who told you that when you were born

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

that you're guaranteed to have all these things of a dunya. And who gave us all of these things that we have? Who told you to have a high expectation of a dunya? It's not Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is the opposite. Allah told us that this life is a test people will be tested with the loss of many things, people have to know that they will depart from this world, Allah remind you not to become attached, and so on and so forth. It's not to make you sad. It's so that your expectation for dunya is not up here where it's wrong. And the reality is down here. So you're always disappointed. You're always feeling entitled, you're always in arguments with other people

00:20:28--> 00:21:04

fighting with your loved ones, fighting with your siblings, fighting with your parents fighting with your spouse, your relatives, your neighbors, your co workers, because you feel you are entitled, Who told you you are entitled, Who told you you are guaranteed anything of a dunya? Again, I know that sounds very harsh, but it's only because we are time and again in Western societies told to pursue certain things and that your lifestyle is guaranteed to be a certain way. And that's what real happiness is. That's what real success is. That's what your validation comes from, from other people or from buying things or having certain brand names. We are not guaranteed anything in this world,

00:21:04--> 00:21:38

except that we're going to leave, you're not guaranteed anything in dunya, except that it's a constant test one blue commission, they will highly fitna. And while this may be difficult for many people in society, to swallow, especially in the West, where we really are, and I think we all know this, and I pray that all of us who are listening to this, we recognize this Wallahi we are blessed and privileged in so many ways. And yet at the same time, the failure of that very test the failure of that blessing is to become entitled and spoiled May Allah protect us May Allah protect us to be disappointed with the little superficial things to be disappointed with not having the newest owners

00:21:38--> 00:22:13

or in brand new. It's it's it's a kind of sadness, to explore, to observe in terms of how a person goes from nothing, having nothing when you are born, to being told and shaped by society that you should feel entitled in some way or even by one's own parents, may Allah protect us. We recognize instead that we have the right expectations of a dunya that you can pursue things you can seek things, you can have things of a dunya but not while you're attached to them, while you are controlling them. They are not controlling you. And everything is with Allah's decree. So if you lose that thing you don't say to yourself, I was entitled to that I was guaranteed to have that what

00:22:13--> 00:22:45

you had pre COVID was not entitled nothing we had pre COVID was guaranteed. How do we know this things changed almost overnight. Subhanallah and it's been SubhanAllah. We're talking here right now about February 2021. Think of last year just a year ago, when COVID started spreading more and more. And then by March, things started getting canceled. I remember my very first flight that I had to get cancelled was in March and I decided you know what, it's now getting way too risky. mid March, everything after that canceled all the flights after everything started changing for people. And as society started basically going through lock downs and confinements and family members and the

00:22:45--> 00:23:16

number of deaths increasing and society may almost patent grant shahada to our brothers and sisters who died due to the pandemic, we're reflecting on the reality we are not entitled to anything in a dunya. So when things shut down, and when the pandemic happens, we ask Allah for relief, we definitely want that relief. We want that freedom once again. But we are not guaranteed the state that we had before. And we're not guaranteed that this current state will last forever, and you're not guaranteed anything for the future. And the more you expect of a dunya the higher your expectations, the farther they are from reality. So the more disappointed you will be the angry or

00:23:16--> 00:23:52

you will become. And again, this is not to say that we're not allowed to want or have anything, or to seek advice or therapy because these things are encouraged. But it's a reminder here that complaining about first world problems reflects a type of psychological and spiritual and spiritual immaturity and a disconnect from reality. Because the reality of a dunya is that nothing in this world belongs to us. The blessings of Allah Subhana Allah given to us at a specific time or place, sometimes for a year sometimes for your entire life. These are blessings we should have gratitude for but don't, don't become attached to them. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to increase this blessing

00:23:52--> 00:24:25

that you have with the Hon coming to India come to me as Eden accom Allah says if you're grateful to Me, meaning for all the blessings that I give you, if you're grateful, I will increase your blessings. And we reflect on the test of other people as well as becoming part of the solution. So be solution oriented when a problem happens in your life, in society for other people focus on accepting it first utterly law you're accepting Allah's decree, knowing that your Allah whatever you decreed is best for us. And even if I don't see the wisdom behind it. Now let me adapt. Let me focus on a solution. Let me ask for relief. And then Allah subhanaw taala says When may you only learn

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

decree will be the second half of the ayah? Yes, look rarlab and saw that whoever strays away and turns away what returns away from a loss of katanas remembrance meaning the worship of Allah subhanaw taala is going to be admitted into the punishment of the afterlife. Verse 18, one nil misogyny and Fela Tony Romo Allahu Allah. When Allah subhanaw taala says we're and then messaggi then Allah, the places of worship are only for Allah. So do not invoke others besides him. It's because of people before the final revelation who changed the messages that came to them. So the stories of the people have, for example, Prophet alayhi salatu salam Jesus

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

They changed the message that came to him they started to worship Jesus, they start to worship marry in other places, in some denominations. And so one of the scholars said this is this is referring to even Jews and Christians at that time that when they would enter their places of worship, they would worship other than Allah subhana wa Tada. So we focus on his eye in terms of the concept of the oneness of God to hate and this is an essential part of Islam, that everything is about the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and has an endlessly rahamallah, the great scholar, he said about this idea, the entire Earth is made as a place of worship. And this idea means not shirk is not to be committed

00:25:35--> 00:26:09

anywhere on the earth of Allah subhanaw taala anywhere basically on Allah's land, and everything belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. And he reasoned out this meaning from the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and every time you hear his name and his salatu salam, peace be upon him, in which the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, for me, the entire Earth has been made a place of worship and a place of or a means of obtaining purity. So you can pray, for example, essentially anywhere except for very few places like the bathrooms and things like that. But generally speaking, you can pray in and most of the land all around the world does not have to be in a mosque or a specific

00:26:09--> 00:26:48

house of worship. So the point here is that Allah subhanaw taala is telling you what and then massage in all the earth is made as a place to worship only a loss or partnership is not to be done anywhere on Earth, ship meaning to worship someone besides God, in addition to God, or regardless of God. Now there are two other possible meanings for the word masajid. One then massage it into the places of worship are only for Allah. The first meaning is the word prostration. Meaning we're all prostration shouldn't be reserved for Allah alone. And the second meaning is, those parts of the body on which a person a man or a woman rests on when in prostration. So the two feet the knees,

00:26:48--> 00:27:29

hands, nose, basically the seven limbs or organs mentioned in the the authentic hadith. These are this body is created by a loss of Hannah Montana, so no one should prostrate oneself on these before another deity before an idol before something else. Now, I want you all to remember this until one of the coolest gems about the word masajid. One of the coolest perspectives and thoughts just so you realize the blessing here in the Sajida, the prostration that you perform every day, notice the blessing value of sujood or such the greatest part of your Salah, the greatest part of the prayer, it is so valuable and it is so great in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala that Allah Subhana Allah

00:27:29--> 00:28:08

refers to the houses of worship as masajid masjid, a place of such depth. So Jude, all of this is linked masajid not for example, mercury, a place of real Quran, Monica rather not a place, a place of sujood what does that tell you? When you say I'm going to the masjid, the place where I perform such that and where people perform their sujood you are realizing that ALLAH SubhanA elevates the soldier of prayer. So you yourself when you're praying as well look forward to the sujood It is the highest part of the prayer meeting is the pinnacle of every rocker. Everything is a warm up to the sujood. And yet some people fly through their suits to panel. It's so scary. It's very frightening,

00:28:08--> 00:28:41

especially when you're praying in the masjid and you pray next to someone else. And they're like picking the ground, they're barely their head is barely touching the ground and then they're flying back up. They're not even sitting between the two soldiers, their their shoulders, and their back is like still strained from the movement and then they fly back down. No stock, no stopping, no move, no stillness between the movements, they are flying through the prayer. Do you realize every single part of that Salah you are praying? Is a conversation with Allah. Would you do that in front of a president or prime minister, someone you respect you're in a job interview? Would you really fly

00:28:41--> 00:29:10

through it like that the interviewer would you ignore them? Would you look left and right would you be on your phone, ignoring that, let's say person that you care about the person of high status. Forget all human beings, you're in a conversation with Allah subhanaw taala, the King of all kings, the One who created this universe, the one who will admit you to agenda the one who gave you every blessing that you have the one who blessed you with the things that you are rushing back to? You are speaking to Allah and you're flying through the prayer law in the hands of Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us that such that is the pinnacle of that raka so what you're doing when you're

00:29:10--> 00:29:47

standing and reciting Quran, take it slowly, one step at a time, one eye at a time, recite slowly enjoy it. Think of that conversation back and forth between you and Allah in Surah Fatiha back and forth and then you're making dua, what is dua Selena it is a connection between you Allah what is Salah Salah prayer is also Sleater the word prayer is very weak. It is a connection between you and God. So give every part of the Salah due attention and then when you're going down for the sujood take your time in such that make dua make dua Breathe slowly breathe in and out. Subhanallah be Ilana Glory, Glory be to Allah Subhana Allah so perfect, Allah is the most elevated the most

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

important thing and you're in the lowest position physically in Salah right in your institute. So your head is on the ground, the lowest position and yet you're in the highest rank. you lower yourself to Allah with humility, Allah will raise you to the highest ranks. May Allah subhanaw taala maker someone

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

into the people who perfect their sujood for the sake of Allah and may Allah Subhana Allah bless our masajid as well and allow us one day soon to be able to reconnect in the houses of Allah subhanaw taala safely and securely and for our brothers and sisters all around the world as well alone I mean, verse 91, no Malema Hana Abdullah here to tell you your cannula that you delivered. Yet when the servant of Allah stood up calling upon Allah subhana alone, the pagans, the people of Mecca, around the karma, they came in mobs in large gatherings to try to stop him. Abdullah here who is the servant of Allah mentioned in this particular episode referring to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu

00:30:36--> 00:31:10

alayhi wa salam. And what's interesting here is that the both the humans and the jinn they crowded together over this matter in order to extinguish the message of Islam in order to stop Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, however, of course, Allah subhanaw taala insisted and decreed to help it to support it to make it victorious over everything else, and this is why it spread despite all of the factors that seem to be overwhelming and attacking the message of truth. Of course, despite all of their military, their politics, their power, everything failed, because the light of a loss for Panasonic cannot be extinguished. The next thing that we say especially when it gets to

00:31:10--> 00:31:50

ir 20 onwards, notice the beginning of the IRS will hold on almost 200 verses in the Quran. Start with oil or include the word hold meaning say or Prophet say to them say, convey the following coin as a reminder that this is not even coming from a human being is coming from above because sometimes people forget this is coming from Allah subhanaw taala called verse 24. In nama adore Obi Wan oshi Kobe I had a say or prophet that I call only upon my Lord and I associate nun with Him in worship, the newly witnessed Salah the prayer, can you imagine the first time that people have arranged these people are worshipping idols, they're seeing prayer in this form for the very first time they were

00:31:51--> 00:32:26

amazed that first but then some of them that elite to the arrogant, the those who were very unjust and unfair in society, they basically started becoming angry, they started to press on the Prophet salallahu salam to stop his mission to give up and to join them and they offered him everything he refused everything. So one scholarship that is I couldn't be in response to that situation that say to them that I only worship Allah subhanaw taala some of them would say How about you worship our idols for a year will worship your God for a year now so literally, caffeine came down. So it's a reminder here the essence of the message is the oneness of God. Every Prophet Messenger came with

00:32:26--> 00:33:01

this sometimes during the 21st century, Muslims are giving Dawa are talking to other people. And sometimes we stray from the the essence of the message. One God worship God the One who created you. And so here there's a reminder for the people turn back to Allah subhanaw taala say to them as well verse 21, hold in Neela I'm Nicola combat one one Rashida say to them, it's not in my power to harm or benefit you. I don't have that power. I'm a human being. Sometimes people ask you for things as a Muslim, thinking that you have, let's say leeway, you have flexibility, you have authority to do things to change things. I don't have that power, I cannot benefit you. I'm a human being. If I'm

00:33:01--> 00:33:16

convenient unto you, if I'm conveying what's right or wrong, I'm conveying something from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And it's not something within my control. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us and to guide us and I ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us alone. I mean, verse 22.

00:33:17--> 00:33:52

Well, in Nila ug Ronnie Amin, Allah, he was an editor in Dooney, Malta, how that say, Indeed, no one can protect me from ALLAH, if I were to do this obey him, nor can I find any refuge other than through Allah. This is a reminder about what the role of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, that he's a messenger of God, that He is a messenger of God. And oftentimes when non Muslims are asking you about Islam, and they don't recognize maybe the essence of Islam, they don't really realize when you read these ayat over and over and over and over a whole, whole whole say to them, indeed, and it's a reminder here, Prophet Muhammad Seisen does not control the wife does not control

00:33:52--> 00:34:21

Revelation does not control the universe. And oftentimes, when people are talking to someone, and they're not yet convinced of it, they're trying to bargain. They're trying to argue, how about you worship our idols? How about you change this? How about we'll give you all the wealth that you want? Well, that's not how it works, I can't benefit you, I can't harm you. Meaning these things in the universe are not within my control. This goes back to Allah subhanaw taala and no one can protect me from alive if I were to disobey Him, if I were to join you anyway. And I cannot find refuge other than through Allah subhanaw taala it's a reminder for you as well, that when you're going through

00:34:21--> 00:34:57

hardships, your refuge is with Allah subhanaw taala at all times in places and if you leave that refuge, where are you headed to? If you leave the safety of Allah subhanaw taala and security, where are you headed to because everything other than the safety of Allah subhanaw taala is danger everything other than safety, Allah subhanaw taala is regret. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us and guide us and save us and keep us amongst those who are within his refuge. Allah illa Allah wa Mina Loy, what is that? Verse 23. My duty is only to convey the truth from Allah and deliver his message or messages meaning all of the ayat of the Quran everything that I have to deliver, and

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

whoever disobeyed Allah and His Messenger

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

We'll be punishing the firewall to stay there for the dinner.

00:35:03--> 00:35:42

Now, the beginning of this is important in Lebanon, Mineola, what is it, you think about the stories of people of the past and today, and how they talk about religion, I do not claim to have any share whatsoever in the role of divinity or God had meaning like we're not nobody is preaching in Islam a hierarchy in terms of spirituality, a hierarchy meaning that there's a hierarchy you have to climb through before you reach like the highest level No, it's directly with Allah subhanaw taala. And I don't possess he's being told I don't possess any power in making or, or changing the destinies of people No, I convey the message only that's all I can do. So I am someone who conveys Bella Amin

00:35:42--> 00:36:19

Allah he what he said it all you can do as a Muslim today, 21st century is to convey you are on a mission to live your life in accordance with the purpose of life as as clarified by Allah and to convey that mission and message to other people as well. This is a mission that was entrusted to Prophet Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam, and today now for us. This is our mission, meaning this is what you are entrusted with your responsibility that you want other people to follow the truth to hear about Islam, to know about Islam from the proper sources, not from the internet and not from or the wrong websites and the wrong media channels. May Allah protect us and utilize all of us Allama

00:36:19--> 00:36:50

Amin, and in other words, the Prophet SAW lorrison motc. If I disobey Allah, and there's nowhere for me to hide, and I'm going to be punished and I have nobody to help because the only one who will protect me from that punishment is Allah subhanaw taala. So I can't join you in that. And this does not mean that every single sin and act of disobedience in general leads a person to the Hellfire or eternal punishment. Rather, it means the one who rejects the invitation to Islam, and the message of Islam actually came to them and is not refrained from the ship or their comfort or secularism or atheism or anything else. That's the person that will be held accountable. Now, can we say

00:36:50--> 00:37:23

specifically about that individual when they die, that we know where they end up? Of course not you leave their judgment to Allah subhanaw taala? Now, there's a question that comes up here often many Muslims ask, out of curiosity, and it's about the hellfire and how to address this issue when a non Muslim asks. It's very simple, very straightforward, logically, but emotionally it might it may not be straightforward for some people. Why? Because they're thinking in terms of their emotions and preferences. They're not thinking with the logical steps. For example, Holly Deena, we have an Allah says, forever, Holly Deena Vietnamese forever. In the general Arabic language, we're going to talk

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

about this inshallah. And but there is an emphasis like for a better meaning forever. What's interesting about this is the question is how far eternal or not? And the question that some people ask, how do we understand the concept of wisdom, fairness, what is the fear of punishment? You and I can't choose? What's a fair punishment? Why? Because we don't have the necessary wisdom for that the necessary knowledge for that? Can you decide what is a fair punishment? In a hypothetical world? You really cannot you can claim that you propose one or two or three. But do you have perfection in your wisdom? Or are you shaped by many deficiencies, limitations society, what your parents taught you or

00:37:59--> 00:38:35

society taught you what you read our mind when you studied in secular schools, we don't have of course, any any degree of wisdom, it's extremely limited. There is no comparison between the human beings let alone between the human being and Allah subhanho attack. So when somebody asks about something like punishment, it's very easy to understand by starting with premises, what you do know already what are some things we know for example, Allah subhanaw taala, is and hacky. The all wise, meaning what? His wisdom is perfect. So can you possibly say Allah decreed something, and he's the all wise and it's perfect? And then say, well, is that fair? Is that unfair? Well, you're not the

00:38:35--> 00:39:11

all wise, you're not in that situation, you don't have access to that knowledge, you know, for a fact that Allah subhanaw taala is the all wise and our limited wisdom should give us humility, our subjectivity amongst one another, we recognize people are different in their perspectives that should make us be extremely humble. We acknowledge right now on this call, we acknowledge during this lecture, that we have very limited wisdom, we have very limited knowledge. Otherwise, if somebody doesn't accept this, they are arrogant May Allah protect us? May Allah subhanaw taala keep us humble, Aloma, I mean, so intellectual humility is crucial. First point, Allah is perfect in his

00:39:11--> 00:39:45

wisdom. The second point, we recognize our limitation when it comes to knowledge as well. Knowledge of the past, present and future knowledge of every single thing as Allah Subhana Allah says, will be equally shared in Adam, he is aware of all things. Allah subhanaw taala also reminds us, not only is he aware of all things, he knows of the things that you will do and the things that could have been and so when we think about the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala and our limitations when Allah says in the Allah mana Talmud to the angels, I know that what you know, not even the angels don't know. So if we if we as human beings have limited knowledge, how can we possibly try to interpret or

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

decide what is fair or unfair what is right or what is wrong without referencing Allah subhanaw taala number three, we know Allah is Allah did so first we said Allah is Al Hakim. Number two, Allah is Allah named all knowing number three, Allah is Allah has been the source of all justice.

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

So Allah is the source of justice. What does this mean? You cannot possibly ever claim as somebody might ask you, especially non Muslim or atheist, you cannot possibly ever think based on your interpretation that something unfair took place between God and His creation. It's not possible why? Allah subhanaw taala informed us so that we never wonder we're never confused. We're never interpreting wrong. It's explicitly clear there's no Venus, Allah Subhana Allah practices when an elderly mode of dukkha or hada in hola hola I have limo with Khalid or Allah Subhan Allah will never treat any of his creation, any of his creation with unfairness injustice, one male Allah, Muhammad,

00:40:34--> 00:41:10

Allah, the people of alpha, Allah says, Allah did not wronged them in any way whatsoever. They were not given any amount of injustice. However, they wronged themselves when I can. And for some of the more than one i or or Allah subhanaw. Taala reminds us they are the people who oppress themselves. They are the people who violated their own rights. But Allah subpattern is not Allah does not treat his creation that way, but not alone. And when he tells us Don't oppress one another, so now you automatically you start off this entire discussion, knowing some things for a fact, I know who Allah is. So I can't fall into misinterpretation or emotions or subjectivity. You think, I think B, she

00:41:10--> 00:41:45

thinks C. We can't. Why because it's not based on opinions is not based on what I want or you want. It's based on knowledge, wisdom, justice, and these things don't come from us. They come from Allah subhanaw taala in his perfection, subhanaw taala number four, the fourth thing we say when we talk about how far there are so many people, many Muslims as well, who automatically assume that everyone who dies as a non Muslim is automatically going to the hellfire. And this is far from the truth. Why? Because you don't know that just because someone died as a non Muslim does not mean they receive the message of Islam. These are two different things for someone to receive the message of

00:41:45--> 00:42:17

Islam, and rejected and rejected and rejected and then they died, they are held accountable. Now even that person when she or he dies, you do not pass judgment on them. Of course, if they die, and you don't know that they died upon Islam, and it seems like they died upon covered, you don't you cannot make dua for them, you leave their affair to Allah, there's no point in thinking about it, because you're not the judge on the Day of Judgment, leave them to Allah subhanaw taala. And the ones that we can talk about are the ones mentioned by name in the Quran, or in the authentic hadith. In the Quran, you have examples of Quran, you have the examples of the righteous as well, the wife

00:42:17--> 00:42:51

of the wife of Fidel in ASEAN. And you have examples of metagame you have examples of the prophets and messengers, and so on and so forth. Otherwise don't pass judgment on people who've died. In addition, those who did not receive the message of Islam, there is a long discussion in Islamic theology, about their responsibility and seeking out the truth who is or is not held accountable. And how many of these people a lot of these people on the Day of Judgment, Allah will test them on that day, because they will receive a fair chance a fair opportunity to be tested if they were not given that chance in this world. So don't think you are more fair or that you are more just so that

00:42:51--> 00:43:26

all these people were not Muslim aren't necessarily going to the Hellfire you don't know their fate. And it's not right for us to be talking about a specific person's fate. However, our responsibility is to call them all invite them all to the true message of Islam, because many people today are aware of Islam and unfortunately brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, a lot of people have an impression of Islam. That's not accurate, but they do know about Islam. And there are many who heard the wrong message of Islam and then researched it found Islam and became Muslim and Hamdulillah. Many, perhaps in our families or communities perhaps some on this call, who had to research and

00:43:26--> 00:43:56

search for the truth and by Allah's mercy and will because of this person sincerely they were guided to Islam. So when we recognize this we say okay, I understand that perspective. What about the one who rejected the message of God like fit on? What about the one who ignored the message of Islam today? Constantly, you're giving them doubt they're rejecting you. They're too arrogant to accept it constantly giving them advice. Here's all the proof here's all the evidence they refuse. They're very rebellious and arrogant like the shape on May Allah protect us. They're refusing and even the shape on believes and Alaba he's considered a calf and why? Because the shaytaan rejected an aspect

00:43:56--> 00:44:33

of worship of Allah rather shaytaan disobeyed Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So what about these people who did reject the message? The people that we know generally are people that Allah describes as never entering jinn, they will never be permitted to enter Jannah? Is the Hellfire eternal? And is it rationally justified? Is it in terms of wisdom? Can we explain it to people that it is fair from from some perspective, there are two opinions here? And it's very important for us to consider these two opinions because a lot of Muslims struggle with this topic when a non Muslim ask, but will lie It's very simple and straightforward. To opinions. Hear some scholars, a minority of scholars of

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

course, they say that the Hellfire is not eternal in the sense of infinite forever with no ending. Rather, they say hard enough. And hard enough he has a Buddha does not imply for forever, literally, but rather for a long, long, long, long, long time that it seems like forever. And you know how sometimes when you're going through pain, when you're going through pain time seems to be very, very slow, hard Idina fie habit of referring to

00:45:00--> 00:45:34

How far Some scholars say and this is this includes claiming to have been teaming up from Allah. They're mean to scholars, especially if they'll claim, Rahim Allah that eventually eventually Allah's Mercy will overcome his anger because we know Allah has both of these attributes so we know Allah is the jest. But since Allah Subhana Allah says in Naramata, for De Beauvoir Dobby that Allah decreed before creating this universe in particular, My Mercy predominates overwhelms my anger, that eventually the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala will overcome the anger meaning in the next life as well. To the extent that the people of hellfire who are never allowed to enter Jannah those specific

00:45:34--> 00:46:07

people, they will cease to exist what they have are but after how much time it will be such a long time that it's as though Holly Dena FIFA and they quote, many evidences from the Quran, some from the Sunnah as well from different Hadith, some from the Companions, like even Mossad, but all the Allah one that there isn't literally eternal suffering, but there's a long suffering. And some of them say even in everyday conversation, sometimes you're waiting for your friend, your sibling, your spouse, and somebody might say, man, I've been waiting for you forever, and you waited like 30 minutes. But generally speaking, when we talk like this, we say hard enough here and there recline,

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

which means for a long time, ever, the N word means forever. But the scholars say here, Allah Subhan Allah knows best that eventually, eventually, there's a possibility that the Hellfire will cease to exist. But since there's a difference of opinion, we share this opinion with someone who might be struggling with faith for them to understand that there are different viewpoints here. However, what's stronger for us intellectually, to know is how to rationally justify the majority opinion. The second opinion? What if? What if the majority opinion was the true one? What if that's what we find out on the Day of Atonement, that Hellfire literally is endless? It's infinite, eternal? Here's

00:46:41--> 00:47:06

my question, and I would like some of you to answer this in the chat, inshallah Altana with a yes or no. Is it logically possible to imagine that there are reasons really good reasons wisdoms for why Allah permits an eternal punishment for these specific people that Allah did not tell us about? Are there? Is it possible logically to imagine that there are reasons that Allah did not tell us about is this logically possible?

00:47:07--> 00:47:42

100% Yes, and nobody can of course deny this. Nobody doesn't matter what their background is. All you have to say is it's logically possible that there are reasons that were not given to you that they are known to Allah, you don't have access to them? Yes. And ultimately, I don't have perfect wisdom or knowledge, even the angels asked, and Allah says in the animal manner, talent. And so if it's logically possible, then what do we have here? What's the problem? It's not a logical problem. The only problem here is for the one who does not recognize the limitations of human wisdom and knowledge. Now, there are some explanations you can share and give a note as well for yourself when

00:47:42--> 00:48:16

it comes to this topic. Are there wisdoms for from the Quran and Sunnah for why there could be an eternal forever punishment for some types of people like that Ireland or like Hitler, or like someone like, who? Who committed genocide against his own people, for example? Yes, it's possible to imagine, and we can list a few. Let's mention three very briefly, Inshallah, number one, a rejection, a rejection of the infinite, the infinite meaning that that which is forever, has infinite consequences. This is one of the original arguments that many scholars propose in the past, that this is a rejection of something infinite. So the consequences are infinite. You know how

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

sometimes when it comes to crime, and this is a longer discussion, to summarize, but not every crime is the same, some crimes if people committed them in one moment, this person killed, let's say, took five minutes for them to commit an act of murder or, or genocide, whatever it may be, whatever the act was, it's not about the length of time it took you to commit that action. Your action has severe consequences based on how bad the action is. And in this case, it's shirk and kufr, amongst many other things, and that's, again, the one who rejected the signs repeatedly, and we don't know exactly who it is, in every situation, we'll leave that to Allah subhanaw taala. So it's about the

00:48:48--> 00:49:21

severity of the crime, that how bad the crime is, number two, here's another reason Allah is Aware, allowed him, he's aware that some of these people, if they came back, they would eventually return back to their lifestyles of Cofer. They would go back to worshipping or they would go back to worshiping their desires, they will go back to atheism, they will go back to shirk, how do we know this? Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran, what I will do, you will know who and if Allah brought them back if they were brought back to this world from the hellfire, they would eventually go back to the thing they were prohibited from via Allah. Some people could see hellfire and still

00:49:21--> 00:49:57

go back to confer yes, it's possible. And this is a reminder for us of how bad arrogance is, and that you don't know the ultimate realities of people may Allah protect us. And the third thing here is that Allah subhanaw taala is aware a lot him that if these people lived forever, not just 100 years on earth in year 2021, that if they lived forever, and Allah gave them countless chances and opportunities, and sent them countless signs and prophets and messengers and messengers, no messages, no matter how many times they were given this opportunity would continue to disbelieve, let's say 4000 1 million, 2 million years they would continue to do so. Now we don't have access to

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

that knowledge. Allah subhana has access to that knowledge

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

He is alarming, like the people have no honey served. they disbelieved, not for 510 20 or 70 years, 950 years. So some of these people we can say like today it's 70 years, or 100 years back then it was 1000 years. And perhaps if this person were given an infinite amount of time on Earth, or let's say, a million years, Allah knows that this person in terms of knowing the future that this person will continue to reject the truth and remain arrogates May Allah protect us. May Allah subhanaw gratis humility. Imam nawawi Ilhan Omar said something wonderful. He said injustice, injustice is impossible for God's truth. Meaning no matter what happens in next life, we already know who aligns.

00:50:36--> 00:51:06

And there's never any injustice. There's never any kind of unfairness. In fact, when you do good, you're not dealing with a lot in terms of justice, you're dealing with the long terms of mercy and reward beyond what you actually deserve. For example, one good deed is multiplied by 10 all the time, whereas the sin is only one sin, may Allah protect us. Now, it's important to consider this as a much longer discussion. I tried to condense it for this value for this extra benefit. I pray that this is beneficial to some of you. I'm not sure if this is something that you were asked before you thought about before but it's important to know the two opinions and also the premises you start

00:51:06--> 00:51:40

with who Allah is we already know that and then rationally recognizing that there are wisdoms we can extract from the Quran and Sunnah. A question here. Isn't that why non Muslim and disbeliever are not interchangeable. So in the English language, generally speaking, we can say non Muslim because the person is not a Muslim in the Arabic language. Generally, you would say though, like Cafayate or machinic, the person is not a Muslim. So the word non Muslim doesn't translate well into Arabic. It's really useful in the English language to distinguish Because oftentimes, especially in western audiences, or amongst non Muslims in society, they may not understand or Muslims may not understand

00:51:40--> 00:52:11

the distinction between people. And so generally speaking, anyone who is not a Muslim is a candidate or a mushrik in some way, but perhaps give them the opportunity to become a Muslim when they become believers. non Muslim just means that they haven't embraced Islam. And this does not mean of course, that we were making dua for this person after death. But it just means that they themselves did not embrace Islam yet, but they are still disbelievers, they are still non believers. In other words, non believer, this believer all of these words are interchangeable, last pattern knows best.

00:52:13--> 00:52:22

Verse 24, Allah subhanaw taala says had either OMA you are doing per se or that Moolman Allah for now, so you don't have to do either. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling us in this area.

00:52:24--> 00:52:54

It's funny, none of you pointed out that we were on the last slide. Medical offical verse 24, Allah Subhana Allah is telling us only when they see what they have been threatened with will they know who is weaker in terms of help and in terms of who is inferior in terms of their resources, their military, their manpower. And the background of this idea is that the people of Karachi used to come in large crowds, a mob around Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, as soon as they heard him making Dawa, as soon as they heard him praying, as soon as they heard him, inviting people to Islam, they would come to attack him in large crowds. Why? Because when they're coming with a crowd,

00:52:54--> 00:53:26

they're very cowardly people. Of course, they're trying to to overwhelm him, they have a lot of numbers. This isn't the beginning of the Dawa. This isn't the very beginning. Just because there's one person one messenger sallallaahu Selim or just a few believers following does not mean that their message of falsehood will prevail. And this is being sent as well today. Today, these people find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referring to the people of Koresh and even today, they thought he was helpless or friendless, or they thought they would overcome them, they thought they had enough support and strength with all their politics, their military, their economy, their

00:53:26--> 00:54:02

authority, their corrupted, corrupt hierarchy, and so on and so forth. But in reality, when the the plan of ALLAH SubhanA manifest said about your numbers, it's about who's on the right side, it's about who's on the side of justice who's on the side of truth, do not look at numbers, do not look at military do not look at wealth, do not look at politics as a metric or measurement of true strength. The strength that we look at in terms of the true metric from the Islamic perspective is beyond these things. We are living during a pandemic, the likes of which we have never seen before, and the likes of which we don't have any information about throughout our history, many ages

00:54:02--> 00:54:39

worldwide, in terms of its effects and consequences, direct indirect effects on all people, the military here does not matter. The string theory of a physical person does not matter. The economic success or political success does not matter anyone, everyone was affected by and this is a virus you cannot even see with your naked eye. And so people are reminding you here that when it comes to the truth, the truth will always prevail. When it comes to the decree of Allah, it will always manifest. This is why we c'est la hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah Lucia further along on Russia for being upon the truth being a Muslim today does not mean that everything has to manifest right now.

00:54:39--> 00:55:00

Or that on somebody else's terms. They tell you well, how come if you're a Muslim, you're part of the truth. Why is a Muslim country struggling? Why are some Muslims being killed? That's not a measurement of truth. The Prophet Seisen was attacked the Sahaba were killed. Does that mean they were not upon the truth? Or did they eventually were they given of course based on a loss of confidence plan? Were they given victory after they strive after they connected to Allah after more peace

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

Welcome to Islam after they migrated to Medina safer place they were strategic and wise as well. Allah bless them at a certain time to have that safety and security and expansion. And so a measurement of truth or the measurement of truth is not based on people's terms. It doesn't matter if Muslims are struggling today or tomorrow or the they are not struggling at all. That's not a measure of truth. We have evidence to show that this is the truth. Everything occurs as Allah subhanaw taala decides and wills not the opponents of Islam or the enemies of Islam, verse 25, put in a duty colleague Ummah to argument Amir Jiang la hora de Amana say, I do not know if what you are

00:55:35--> 00:56:08

promised is nearby, or my Lord has set a distant time for it. There's an interesting style here that's utilized. And what's being said is, when will the time of punishment come to us? This is like what they're asking. And this is what atheists today are asking this is what non Muslims, they might ask us and they make mark and ask, well, where's the punishment? Where's the thing you're talking about? Where's the help of God in here or there? But it's not on your terms. It's not on their terms. It's not on anyone's terms. It's on a loss terms alone. And so this is a very immature type of question. But remember, this is what arrogance does to people. Look at the people of sada they

00:56:08--> 00:56:43

asked What is the punishment coming? The people of new one is the punishment coming bring it to us, they kept saying and eventually the flood came and they drowned, that people have ruled the people at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, and the people of today. So in response, the Prophet saw my son was commanded to say the time will certainly come, but I have not been told about the date or the time of its coming Allah subhanaw taala alone knows that information when he decides that it will come, whether it is or whether it is a distant term that has been set for it. Verse 26, ali Mulaney fella, you will hear one or you be heard he alone subhanaw taala is the Knower

00:56:43--> 00:57:20

of the unseen disclosing none of it to anyone. Now, some people misunderstand this idea. And they assume that this means that nobody has knowledge. Now this means that Allah subhanaw taala with him is all knowledge but he gives access of or to unlike the unseen to the prophets or messengers or anyone he wills based on his terms. So information about unlike was given to us about Elgin about the melodica about the day of judgment about the grave, so that you are preparing so that you are aware of reality. So Allah subhanaw taala provides us when he decides, one time there's a story about a man who came and asked a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam matter, sir, like when is the

00:57:20--> 00:57:49

Day of Judgment? When is the Day of Judgment occurring? And he's so fascinated. Imagine the people today are like when you were like 1516 years old, some of you, perhaps and this was my case, looking at all the signs of the Day of Judgment with fascination. When is it happening? What are the signs that passed? How many signs are left, once the gel coming? And people are fascinated by these things about the unseen that we don't have access to? The man came and asked the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, Messiah, what is the day of judgment? He wants to know when is it going to happen? And of course we don't have access to this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, Woe unto you, meaning

00:57:49--> 00:58:00

like pay attention to yourself, or the teller, what did you prepare for it? That's what matters, it will occur no matter what, what did you prepare for it? The man said, I have not prepared much for it.

00:58:01--> 00:58:32

Except of prayers and fasting or off prayers and fasting, but I love Allah and His messenger, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam responded about the love aspect. And he says that you will be with the person that you love the Phantom element, but, and the Sahaba, who reported this and as lonely alone, and he said the Muslims, those who heard this, they were not happy with anything like they were when they heard this hadith that you will be with the one you love meaning if you love Allah and His Messenger, He loved the Prophet, so awesome, you will be with him. That love has to manifest in reality, you have to do the actions that are required. Now what the prophets, prophets and

00:58:32--> 00:59:07

messengers came with. This is the story of every Prophet and Messenger. Every time you hear a story, you attend a lecture, you read a book about the stories of the Quran, the Stories of the Prophets, they're coming with news to their people, they're coming with news and information from Allah subhanaw taala information that they have no access to people don't have access to. And today we recognize the blessing in this final message, the final correspondence from Allah to all of mankind, the Quran, that Allah Subhana Allah has promised for all of mankind until the end of times, this is his message to us. Verse 27, in laminal, tomo aminoacyl in for Indo US local mean Vainio the human

00:59:07--> 00:59:42

helping rassada Except messengers of his choice, Allah gives them access to that then he appoints Angel guards before and behind them. This means what this includes the angelic messenger, Djibouti Ali Salam, as well as Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, meaning that he does not have access to the unseen except by Allah's Will, Allah allows this to take place. What are the angels here, some of some of you may be fascinated to hear this for the first time, that's when the revelation comes down. There are angels guarding that revelation, that information meaning what so that people know that that information is guarded and preserved against any kind of interference from the devils

00:59:42--> 01:00:00

or from anyone else, that it's preserved and there are angels bringing it down also as a status for it as in terms of honoring it that this is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala. So the angels come basically safeguarding it from every direction in order to make sure that it is protected from any kind of corruption or interference. And it's important to keep in mind that

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

While this may not be a concern for people today, this was mentioned in light of Surah Trojan. So this is about the devils that used to eavesdrop, right, so they used to access information before the final message before the final revelation. And then they could no longer access that the decree that was being discussed in the cloud with the angels, and so on and so forth. And then the final idea here to wrap up sort of religion, I have 28, the parliament and the Avila already signed it, and I'll be him what I hope I'll be mad at him what I saw, in order to ensure that the messenger is fully deliver the Messages of their Lord, although he subhanaw taala already knows all about them

01:00:35--> 01:01:11

and keeps account of everything. Now this can have three meanings, and we can combine them, number one, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi. Salam may know that the angels have delivered the messages of Allah to him precisely and accurately. Number two, that Allah may know meaning that they will bear witness that Allah may know that the angels have conveyed the message of their Lord to His Messenger SallAllahu Sallam precisely and accurately a number three, that Allah subhanaw taala may know that the messenger SallAllahu wasallam has conveyed the Messages of his Lord to His servants precisely and accurately, we can say all three of these are valid. And the verse points to two other

01:01:11--> 01:01:48

things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam is given that knowledge of alpha in the unseen which is necessary for him to perform his mission of prophethood. So he's given certain information number two, that the angels keep watch to make sure that the way the revelation reaches Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, safely, and also that the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam conveys the messages of Allah of his Lord to His servants precisely and accurately. And the last thing that we say one of the most interesting things, what I saw collage in other Allah keeps account of everything, that is Allah subhanaw taala has power, so encompasses the messenger SallAllahu sallam, as well as the

01:01:48--> 01:02:25

angels that even if they were to swerve a little from his will, or from the mission that they had, Allah would know, of course, immediately and in advance. Moreover, a complete record of every single thing that came down, is known to Allah subhanaw taala. So the angels would never dare to meddle This is not something angels would do, or the Prophet slicin would do. And what's interesting here as well, Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge encompasses everything meticulously, precisely in a way that we really cannot imagine. Every single atom in the universe, every particle in every mountain in every place around the world, all across the universe. Allah is aware of it every drop of water

01:02:25--> 01:02:59

in the ocean, Allah subhanaw taala is aware of it, he knows the exact number he knows the exact place he knows the exact movement and the projection and where it will go in the water cycle and all of its details. Allah subhanaw taala alone has knowledge of every single leaf on every tree in this world. Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge is so complete, that the things that you are going to do that you did not yet do Allah's aware and also every other option, every other possibility that you did not end up doing Allah is aware of what would have happened had you done that. And when you look at for example, something as detailed as the grains of sand if all human beings were to try to count

01:02:59--> 01:03:37

physically, one by one than grains of sand on earth we could never do so. According to one estimate from one mathematician, there are seven quintillion 500 quadrillion grains of sand. And this is just an estimate. As far as we know, we don't even know the reality of the situation. When you think of the number of trees in the world, an estimate of 400 to 500 billion trees on earth, Allah is aware of their every situation, when you think of the number of leaves on all of the trees, Allah subhanaw taala is aware of every leaf, on some trees, it could be 200,000, and it could be 5 million leaves on one tree. Allah is Aware of every part of that leaf. And every leaf when it's false, every single

01:03:37--> 01:04:15

leaf when it is given its nourishment and every leaf when it dies, Allah subhanaw taala is aware of when that leaf has also been recreated on a tree or the tree is coming alive for the next season. And we see this all the time. In terms of the change of the seasons, that knowledge is known to Allah subhanaw taala. In the body of one human being on average, we can say approximately there are 100,000 drops of blood in your body. Allah is Aware of every single drop of blood in your body. In terms of your brain alone, there are 100 billion neurons or more Allah is Aware of every single neuron. And finally, even in terms of the stars all around the universe, and we don't even barely

01:04:15--> 01:04:52

know anything. We've barely touched the tip of that in terms of our knowledge, just in one galaxy, there are approximately 100 billion stars according to one study. So in other words, we don't know anything, everything goes back to Allah subhanaw taala How can we not be humbled and odd and to Say Subhan Allah, how perfect Allah is. This is just a topic of Allah's knowledge. What is our cliche, in other words, our culture in other? We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us this humility. We can tie this in directly to the first eye of the surah by saying what when Allah subhanaw taala informed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the situation with the angel with the jinn who became

01:04:52--> 01:05:00

Muslim. What was happening here polu now stemma to the end of it, say to them or people has been revealed to me, where is this revelation come?

01:05:00--> 01:05:31

Even from this knowledge coming from it is coming from Allah subhanaw taala who will be equally Shane is the one who is aware of all things. May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to benefit from the tough seat of the soul or the lessons of the surah loves to implement these things in different ways, individually with our families, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, so So in terms of our society in terms of changing things for the better, may Allah subhanaw taala make us people of optimism and people who put their trust in Him. Again, we emphasize with this topic in particular, there is nothing to fear because you are within the safety and shelter and fortress of Allah

01:05:31--> 01:06:05

subhanaw taala So be consistent in your DUA, you're dedicating your connection with him. And may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from string May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from forgetting and may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from our own egos and the distractions of this world and the entitlements that people have of a dunya May Allah Subhana Allah forgive us guidance purifies protect us Allahumma Amin, let's delve into the Tafseer of the next Surah Surah truly Muslim male We ask Allah subhanaw taala to benefit us through this tough seed and to grant us sincerely as we studied and sought on one of the earliest revelations one of the most crucial to self development

01:06:05--> 01:06:43

and spiritual development. And as we delve into solitude, Muslim men, we want to give some context first, the sutra, named after animism and the first idea we'll talk about that means the one who's covered or the one who's clothed the one who has garments on there's a link between the soul and the last one. There are some things that are similar in terms of the relationship the links between Surah telogen and saltoun Muslim and the first is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given heavy, heavy speech in us a nuclear, Arctic and oil and the cleaner so it's heavy, heavy speeches, a huge responsibility. And that is why the people of Quraysh attacked him they threatened

01:06:43--> 01:07:21

this threaten their arrogance, lifestyles, their finances, their politics, their status in society, their worldly desires, all of these worldly things and evil things were being threatened in their perspective, rather than them seeing that they were being liberated from it. Subhan Allah so the Prophet slicin has been given heavy speech colon tequila, and that's the reason why subhanaw taala mentioned as well in a surah two agenda when the prophets lesson stood up what Nola Malcolm Abdullah, he wrote when he spoke stood up to give Dawa people basically came into mobs to attack him. Why? Because the speech was heavy, it was very life changing. It was obviously world changing

01:07:21--> 01:07:57

and it is timeless. Number two in terms of the Lynx is Allah subhanaw taala mentions that the masajid are for Allah worship none other than Allah subhana don't worship partners with Allah Subhana Allah and then in the surah Allah subhanaw taala is the Lord of the East and the West take him alone as your Joaquin. There's an emphasis here on worshiping Allah subhanaw taala alone again Arambol mercifully will not only be La Ilaha Tofino Akita take a lot a loan as your as your trustee is the one who will take care of you. The number three the Hellfire is mentioned in both sold with some details added in certain Muslim men as well we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us as we

01:07:57--> 01:08:31

study the Surah Now what we have to remember the main points the main things to remember in shallow Tada verse one to 19 is making. This is unanimous, verse 20. When we get to it, it's that longer idea when we get to a traumatol You'll see why some scholars said it's Mecca and other scholars said it's Medina and meaning it was revealed later in Medina we'll talk about the inshallah Tada when we get to it for now recognize that this is one of the earliest revelations one of the first in fact some scholars say maybe this is the third Surah or the fourth fourth Surah that was revealed maybe the third or the fourth of the surah that will reveal in terms of order after Al Quran, you have

01:08:31--> 01:09:07

some scholars say so that will column which we've covered and then you might have saw a little more depth and then animism and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada knows best this is what are some of the scholars have stated. So this is the earliest period of prophethood. So what's important here in the in the beginning before even the prophethood takes place, meaning before the the revelation is conveyed to people what is required for the one who is going to be going on this mission. There needs to be a training a spiritual, psychological physical training for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for this position for this office, this position of being a messenger of Allah training from Allah subhanaw

01:09:07--> 01:09:45

taala. What kind of training are we going to see the sooner that we can benefit from as well. And this passage here the opening passage of solid tumors, Zuma was revealed at a time in which he Salah lorrison and started preaching on for under he started preaching, and the opposition to him at Makkah became very active and very strong. So now it's becoming a very serious issue. And in terms of the theme and the subject matter of the surah the first seven ayat, it's a reminder here, take the reminder for yourself today, your 2021 take the same reminder, the Prophet slicin was being reminded, prepare yourself to shoulder the responsibilities of this great life changing world

01:09:45--> 01:10:00

changing mission that has been entrusted to you. It's practical form is that you should rise during the night hours in order to stand before Allah and pray for either half the night or a little more or a little less of it. And then

01:10:00--> 01:10:34

later so there's one part of the training versus eight to 14. The reminder in the training to the Prophet, slice and devote yourself exclusively to Allah subhana the one who controls the entire universe, in trust all of your affairs to Allah subhanaw taala with your full hearts with the full satisfaction of your heart, to what could here to the highest degree this is part of the training program, and bear with patients have soldered to the highest standard with whatever your opponents may utter against you, with whatever comes your way you have the highest standard of manners and patience and perseverance leave their affair to Allah, Allah Himself will deal with them. And then

01:10:34--> 01:11:10

the next part of the Surah 15 to 19. So this is all the beginning of Surah turn Muslim and in terms of the theme, Allah subhanaw taala is addressing the people of Mecca those who are opposing the prophets lie Selim, as though to say we have sent a messenger to you, Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu. Salam just was just as we sent a messenger to fill out the person that is known to them, the person that was one of the most evil in history, and consider the bad and evil fate that he met when he rejected for and rejected the invitation of the Messenger of Allah Musa de Sena. And supposing that you are not punished by a torment in this world, how will you save yourselves from the punishment of

01:11:10--> 01:11:47

kofod? How will you save yourselves on the Day of Resurrection so this is the first part of the surah the last day of verse 20. When we get to Inshallah, tada, we will talk about it. For now, in Allah. We've introduced the training program here, for you to be spiritually strong, personally strong, psychologically, emotionally, to be well developed to take on a lot of responsibilities in a way that is pleasing to Allah, you need to have all of these characteristics now any one of us can study today Subhanallah you can study certain resemble today, and take all of this as a training for yourself that you are upon a mission. What is your mission in life? What is your mission, if you say

01:11:47--> 01:12:18

I want to make the world a better place, I want to change society, I want to overcome some of the oppressions or in justices in the world. I want to raise children who will also overcome these oppressions I want to raise righteous and wise intellectual, well rounded righteous children, all of this will require some kind of training, what makes a person strong other than through the training of the experiences that we go through someone who sheltered his or her entire life never going through any pain, their parents are never letting them experience self discipline or ethic or anything like that work ethic, and the person finally is thrown into adulthood and now they're

01:12:18--> 01:12:50

they're out in the real world dealing with all the problems of the world that they have to deal with. And even their own responsibility Subhanallah you find them breaking down very easily that you find them feeling like they are entitled to everything going well and easy. Why? Because everything was given to them before at a very high standard as well shelter too much. And so we're not talking here about a back a good kind of shelter, we're talking about the negative type for you to say I want to be a responsible human being living for my purpose for that for the purpose Allah created me for as well as to help society you should want to reform society we're living in America in your

01:12:50--> 01:13:23

2021 in which we can see every single day on the news, all the corruption that is so obvious and evident they are discussing it constantly in the news Subhanallah in America and all around the world should we as Muslims simply say, I want to live my life, eat good food, have a good family, worship Allah and just die and not do anything for society or should you want to be part of the solution for the world for society. Palestine in the past was not liberated and Muslim lands were not liberated because Muslims were chilling and just doing their part meaning just living their own lives. Now they were contributing to the change in society. The people who surrounded Mohammed Al

01:13:23--> 01:14:00

Fatiha Salah Medina up or honorable football, Ronnie Allah one, they had to be trained in some way mean they had to be developed in some way. And for us today we say the development and the training that Allah subhanaw taala prescribed for the messenger Allah Salatu Salam is one we can learn from and extract lessons from and apply today. For you to be a so called as a social reformer or social justice warrior. Take what Allah gave you and you will be a reformer of mankind, He will be a reformer of many nations and states, not not necessarily within your lifetime, not because you want to credit or you want people to see you when you want to do to your best capacity, what's required,

01:14:00--> 01:14:26

but you need the skills for it. And we're not talking here just about external skills or etiquette, you need the internal training, first and foremost. And that is what we are provided with in the beginning of the Surah At the height of the first moment of basically opposition to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Let's turn our attention to channel Tala to Surah twin Muslim and we'll go through the recitation inshallah Tada. Feel free to follow along with the translation radical upheaval

01:14:28--> 01:14:37

will cover just for today because we have 29 minutes in Sharla. Just the first ayat in terms of the resuscitation and we'll see how far we can get with the actual tafsir

01:14:41--> 01:14:54

are all there'll be lucky Mina shale Paul and you'll want Jeem Bismillah Hiroshima near war walking me? Yeah.

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

Joaquin.

01:15:56--> 01:16:35

Going back to the context of the surah Yeah, you want a muslim or you who is wrapped in garments or who's clothed, wrapped in garments Stand all night in the prayer come in later in luckily, except for a little we're going to talk about this opening ayat, inshallah Tada. And perhaps that's all we will cover for tonight. So I add one to four. Yeah, you have a Muslim Muslim male is from the root which means what a person who is covered a man in this case in the masculine sense, the one who is the man who is wrapped in a garment. And of course, there's a story here a story every Muslim should know, every Muslim should be aware of the story and it is the story of the beginning of Revelation.

01:16:35--> 01:17:12

The first two why that took place. It was authentically reported from my channel, the Allahu Allah and the Prophet slicin is explaining this to Arusha and we're being taught what's happened. The beginning of the revelation that came to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started with good dreams. He never saw a dream except that it became true, like the bright like the bright daylight meaning it's that clear meaning that's how true it was. That's how accurate it was. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam right before he became a prophet right before the prophet hood began, the first way that we'll talk about in sha Allah, he started to have dreams that then became reality,

01:17:12--> 01:17:46

all the time the dream would become a reality that the dream would become a reality. Subhanallah This is a sign of the forthcoming prophethood and in fact, one of the signs of one of the characteristics of Prophet to a due to his trustworthiness, his honesty and the time of what he probably had been nearby. She said, not the alarm on it, and then decaf or seclusion was made dear to him. seclusion, meaning being alone, being isolated, to worship Allah to think of Allah to to think of the Creator to think of things now, to think of Allah Subhana Allah does not mean that there were rules of Sharia or Islam or anything like that, no, just to to reflect, to reflect on the

01:17:46--> 01:18:18

world to reflect on the creator and the purpose of life. So the Prophet salallahu Salam, she said about him seclusion was made clear to him started really loving it. And he used to go to the Lord Hara, he used to go to the cave of Herat, which was a track in fact, have you ever been there if any of you have been to hard rock, you know, it's a track and not everyone can make it. It's very tiring for many people in the sun is out. And he used to worship there, he used to sit and he used to reflect some kind of reflection, some kind of seclusion alone for people, which means that he went devoted himself to worship for a number of nights before coming back to his family to collect what

01:18:18--> 01:18:52

more provisions more things like food and whatever he needed. And then he would go back and reflect for a few more days. And he would go back to Khadija on the Aloha Anna, he would go back to college or the Lohana to collect these provisions. This went on until the truth of why he came to him suddenly, abruptly when he was in the cave of Halal what happened. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in hot hot reflecting imagine the scenario on how scared you will be some people are scared of their own shadows. Some people are scared of anything. So Allah may Allah protect you and help you overcome these fears. And I'm not making fun of the one who's afraid of their shadow.

01:18:52--> 01:19:25

Because like, we reflect the panel all around us on the different types of personalities there are in in human beings, and even in animals. Subhanallah like my cat, for example, is absolutely afraid of her own shadow. Like she'll move something and then she'll be afraid like what moved it Subhanallah now as human beings we can say if we were in this situation, if you were in a cave by yourself, and this is not the first time you went to the cave, you've been in this cave numerous times before you have experienced meaning what the cave is isolated, it's very small. You're up on this mountain. There's nobody there. Do you know when you're on a mountain, especially back then

01:19:25--> 01:20:00

when there's no like technology and noise of a civilization and society. You can hear noises from far away. So you'll hear someone walking, you'll hear things as they move about you'll hear something rumbling you know the clouds or the thunder so you can tell when something is about to happen. So you have what a heads up. You're not going to be like surprised. That's the thing that scares people how abrupt it is. A Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is meditating, reflecting in this cave that he has been to many times this quiet place, and then suddenly an angel grabbed him really tightly and said read and a voice as it's grabbing. He doesn't know

01:20:00--> 01:20:31

What's an angel sallallahu alayhi salam imagine the fear that he had. But he responded right away and said, I'm not a reader manner because it I don't read. And this is a reminder, the Prophet slicin does not read, he was not taught literacy. He was not taught to read and write, even though he's very intelligent. He's autism, he was not taught to read and write, don't, don't mix up the two together. And many people were not taught to read and write at that time. So he said, No, no, be quiet. He said, and then he took hold of me and he squeezed me until I could not bear it anymore. I thought it was the end of me. And then he released me and said, If pura read, and the Prophet SAW I

01:20:31--> 01:20:58

said, and responded, might not be a pilot, I am not a reader. And then he took hold of me again, excuse me a second time until I could not bear it any more. Imagine that feeling, I cannot bear it anymore. And then he released the inside if Cora and he said Martin a big party, and then he took me and squeezed me a third time until I could not bear it anymore. And then he released me and then he said, it could be smear on Beacon leather, you Hornak the first five ayat of surah, Allah Allah who are recited here.

01:20:59--> 01:21:40

He Who has created man for so read in the Name of your Lord who has created all that exists, he subhanaw taala has created man from a clot read a Quran or a book, Allah Chromeo Lord is the Most Generous Alethea Allama McCollum, the one who taught writing by the pen unlimited in Santa Maria Mian, he has taught mankind that which he knew not Allah gave us the power, the blessing of language of advanced language like nothing else we identify or observe in the world around us, Subhan Allah, and then the prophets, Elijah and when he heard this, and it finished this moment, and we assume that this is the thing that caused him to be so afraid. He is running at a slaughterhouse and

01:21:40--> 01:22:20

fleeing from that cave. And he runs down the cave and we can assume that this might be a one or two hour walk or trek, Allahu Allah. He's running so fast. His heart is beating very wildly until he comes to Hadith or the loved one. And he says what the milioni is immediately cover me cover me is very afraid. I saw this time he doesn't know what he just experienced. And then they covered him until his fear finally went away like it died out after some time. And then he said to her digital the Lohana Oh, Khadija I fear for myself Kakashi to an NFC, I'm so afraid what happened, Manny caught her she'd rather not see what's going on with me. And he told her everything that happened.

01:22:21--> 01:22:56

Notice here the sign of prophethood. There's a sign here as well. And that is not that this was some invented thing where he went suddenly to the city folks and told them I just received the profit slice and expressed one human emotion or real fear, a strong fear and he's worried even though he's a SonicWALL. I mean, quite harshly to add enough seats has no saying like, I'm ruined, like what happened to me what's going on? I'm losing my mind. It's along these lines. And I want you to reflect brothers and sisters on something that can be life changing if we were to act upon it in Charlottetown, a very simple but very powerful hottie Journal, the Lohana was so beloved to

01:22:56--> 01:23:31

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam because she supported him. And not just she she had a wealth or a business or financially she also supported him emotionally. She supported me emotionally and later on when people attack them and oppose them. She supported him defended him stood by him until the very last breath. What did she say to him in this most difficult time when he was afraid? He said, I'm afraid for myself, I'm afraid what's going on with me? What did I just experienced? What's happened to me called Hershey to add NFC? She said collaboration? No, no, no way. Be optimistic. I'm sure means have have some optimism have some glad tidings some good news. Here's the good news. Why?

01:23:31--> 01:24:05

Wala Hema yo Haleakala, whoever that she said Allah Subhana Allah by Allah will he will never disgrace you he will not disgrace your meaning Allah the Creator, this is what they know this is mourn with ease into this is to worship the one God alone. The prophesy son was never of course close to the idols or ever worship idols. The prophets I'm only believed in the Creator, Allah subhana wa, wa Allah, he may have Zico Allahu Allah. So how digital the Allah Han is saying, I swear by Allah Allah will not disgrace you now. Why did hottie God Allah Allah say this to the prophets why Selim? Why are we saying that why she's saying that? So after 15 years of sharing morning and

01:24:05--> 01:24:37

evening experiences with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam day and night knowing who he is she has some some justification for the following claims. What did she say? She backs it up with evidence why will Allah not disgrace you? How do I know this is actually not a bad thing? This is a good thing that happened to you. She She told him and there are many Hadith about this. She told him who he was. So some moral things about you that prove that Allah is not going to disgrace you don't don't think that here's some validation what are the six things I want you to pay attention inshallah Tada if one of you wants to write these in the chat share with everyone's benefit all six of them

01:24:37--> 01:24:59

inshallah Tada, very straightforward. What are the six things that hadith God Allah Allah said, in Nikola Tesla, when you are good to your family, you are pulled the ties of family kinship. Family has a high priority in your life in Nikola Tesla one and two, by the way, have good times with family and relatives does not mean only when things are easy. It's when they cut you off and you are trying to be kind and you are connecting. That's the real test.

01:25:00--> 01:25:30

Obviously not on our hand. And this is actually what the profits last time informs us. So she tells him, Allah will not disgrace you because of the following points in neck and that's also your home number one. Number two, what does not call Hadith. And you as well, you speak the truth, you are known as of Saudi Arabia, you speak the truth. If you always speak the truth, do not assume that what's happening to you is a punishment or a bad thing. Don't assume that no, rather you are a trustworthy, honest person. So this can only be something good for you, WhatsApp, middle Cal, and you take on the burdens of other people. So number three, you take on the burdens of other people,

01:25:30--> 01:26:01

people that are oftentimes neglected people that are oftentimes looked down upon look around society, in America and all around the world, how many people are looked down upon in society ignored, and we're living in a very individualistic society, Subhan Allah, may Allah protect us and guide us and forgive us for our shortcomings as well, when we're influenced by these things, and we're disconnected from families and we think only of ourselves know what can you take on the burdens of other people, you grab people by the hand and you lift them right up, you talk to the one who needs someone to talk to you speak to them, you help them, you support them, a person reaches

01:26:01--> 01:26:32

out and says, I'm struggling, I'm suffering and you say, Well, I don't want to help. That's not your role. Your role is to be the person who takes on this burden and helps May Allah subhanaw taala utilize all of us to help other people, whether it's online, through messages, social media, wherever it may be, be a person who helps other people with their burdens, you help uplift them, you help them resolve it, when there are two people fighting, you help bring them closer together in sha Allah, what's a miracle number three, number four, what taxi will not do, and you help the needy, you take care of those who have a hard time taking care of their own selves. This is something that

01:26:32--> 01:27:05

is that speaks for itself in terms of the need today to do so in America and all around the world, what taxi will not do number four, number five, we're talking about life, you are welcoming to your guests, you are very hospitable to the life and this is a very positive noble characteristic. Subhanallah Even today, when many people no longer Subhanallah have guests and I don't mean during the pandemic, but I mean long term in general, society has shifted in many ways. And finally, number six, were to renew, I don't know why it will help and you are always the first one waiting there when there ever is a good cause meaning you are the first supporter, you are the main supporter and

01:27:05--> 01:27:36

you are a supporter of good causes the truth. You're always there. If there's a dispute, you're always upon the truth if there's justice injustice in society in America, Canada, wherever that you or your brother or sister today, then you're always standing on the side of truth. What are no I don't know why even hotkeys are the sixth thing she said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ask yourself of the six and with these six in mind, how many of them have we mastered to the highest level? How many of these do we live by if you want to change society, you have to begin with the six you have to have the six if you're not a person who always tells the truth, or helps the needy or

01:27:36--> 01:28:10

takes on the burden of others, or a person who upholds the ties of family, or welcoming to guests in your community, your message in your home as well. What are in one an hour it will help you're always supporting the truth. You're not supporting just a cause or an identity or ethnicity or you're supporting the truth, wherever the truth may be, and whoever is on the other side does not matter. In that case, you bring people to the truth. Ask yourself with these six traits, how many of them we are fulfilling and mastering to the greatest capacity write them down remind yourself after this lecture inshallah Tada to reflect for a moment, 510 minutes with each of these six, is there an

01:28:10--> 01:28:42

area I can improve on? Is there something more I can do because no doubt we can all improve in some capacity. May Allah subhana allow us to do so and to share this with others as well. Along with me. Notice here how digital the lawn is a source of comfort for the profit slice. And so it's a reminder here and he loved her so much for that never forgot that about her, even when when she passed away, and I'll be alone one and the profit slice of them used to talk about her in a very positive way around others and even around the other wise, the prophet has mentioned Khadija so much even in front of actual of the Lohana. And she said it's as though she's the only one like that that's there

01:28:42--> 01:29:13

and the prophets lesson showed I should look for her as well. But he he explained to her why. He said she supported me when I was in my most difficult times. She supported me when people turned against me my own people kicked me out of my land she she was there for me. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is talking about Khadija recognizing what are all the blessings of prophethood and the support that you need as a human being from your own family members, your community, your your spouse, your parents, your children, your siblings, that you should be a source of comfort for others as well. May Allah Subhana Allah utilize us to support one another. They're all of the family

01:29:13--> 01:29:43

is not just for the sake of a relationship or the role of siblings. No, you have to be a comfort for one another. You have to support each other when things are difficult. Your brother, your sister, your mother, your father, your cousin, your relatives, whoever may be your spouse, so on and so forth. When someone is going through hardships when someone is very stressed out when someone is in fear, like this example that we have, from the context of Revelation, support them. Don't be angry at them that they're afraid or stressed out that they're afraid or support them at first, recognize the emotion that they have and give them glad tidings remind them Upshur apps should have optimism

01:29:43--> 01:29:59

have hope in all situations have hope. Because oftentimes that's what we need to start with an oftentimes that is the essential thing that will help you to overcome the fear or the difficulty or the stress of a situation may Allah subhanaw taala bring our hearts together and allow us within our families to to unite will allow us to see
